A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

Messenger: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.

Messenger: Christ told me for several weeks September - October 1991, "Feed the hungry."

April 14-15, 1993, the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, I saw what I believed to be St. John the Baptist in the apparition house at Conyers, Georgia.

May 13, 1993, I received the first message He wished in Blue Book I.


Messenger: On December 7, 1996, I received the revelations on light that appeared in yesterday's message. Thereafter the Scriptures were opened to us, they were seen in a greater light.

I am a messenger from God, Fr. Carter and I are the voice of one crying in the desert to prepare a way for a time when the Word will be so deeply planted in the hearts of men.

From the Feast of St. Francis Xavier, December 3, 1996, I write how one word spoken at Mass is so deeply embedded in my soul when He gives me an ecstasy.

This is how it will be. That man will know Him as never before, they will see with the light of seven suns.

These revelations He gives to us are to take them into the deepest union with Him, dwelling in Jesus' most Sacred Heart. Therein are found the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Therein is found the fullness of life, life in Him.

On December 7, 1996, I received the revelations on light and the Scriptures opened up more clearly to us after that.

On December 17, 1996, Mary appeared, the Lady Clothed with the Sun.

In these writings and Fr. Carter's newsletter for the priests, the voice of the Good Shepherd speaks to lead men into the DEPTH of His Heart.

The word of God will be spoken as a two-edged sword by our priests and the people will receive it as an arrow that pierces their hearts and souls.

From today's reading, Isaiah 40

Isaiah 40: 5

then the glory of Yahweh will be revealed
and all humanity will see it together,
for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken.

Isaiah 40:11

He is like a shepherd feeding his flock,
gathering lambs in his arms,
holding them against his breast
and leading to their rest the mother ewes.

Isaiah 30:19, 30

Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you
  when your cry for help rings out;
as soon as he hears it,
  he will answer you.

Yahweh will make his majestic voice
  ring out,
he will show the weight of his arm
in the heat of his anger,
  with a devouring fire,
with thunderbolt,
  downpour and hailstones.

John 10: 4 and 16

…and the sheep follow because they know his voice.

…They too will listen to my voice,
    and there will be only one flock,
    one shepherd.

Psalm 85:11

Loyalty will spring up from the earth,
and Justice will lean down from heaven.

Loyalty will spring up from the earth,
and Justice will lean down from heaven.

Messenger: The people are hungry - we tell the flock about His word in the Scriptures so they will be fed.

John the Baptist was in the desert.

Many are spiritually starving.

Mark 1: 2-3

It is written in the prophet Isaiah:

Look, I am going to send my messenger
  in front of you,
to prepare your way before you.
A voice of one that cries in the desert:
Prepare a way for the Lord,
make his paths straight.

Messenger: We cry out to you, please hear His voice.

Isaiah 30:19, 30

Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you
  when your cry for help rings out;
as soon as he hears it,
  he will answer you.

Yahweh will make his majestic voice
  ring out,
he will show the weight of his arm
in the heat of his anger,
  with a devouring fire,
with thunderbolt,
  downpour and hailstones.

Second Message - December 5, 1999

Messenger: Yesterday, First Saturday, after the 6:20 prayers, our Lady appeared to me in all her glory and beauty. I did not feel as I wanted to, for within me is this anxiety of wanting this fullness of life that we will have in eternity. At Mass this morning, as they read the readings for the second week of Advent, my whole being was embraced with the presence of God, and the beauty of that vision of Mary yesterday filled my soul as He found favor with my soul and allowed me to exist so intimately in Him. The readings of today's Mass He wishes to appear here.

First Reading: Isaiah 40:1-5, 9-11

Isaiah 40: 1-5, 9-11

'Console my people, console them,'
says your God.
'Speak to the heart of Jerusalem
and cry to her
that her period of service is ended,
that her guilt has been atoned for,
that, from the hand of Yahweh,
  she has received
double punishment for all her sins.'

A voice cries, 'Prepare in the desert
a way for Yahweh.
Make a straight highway for our God
across the wastelands.
Let every valley be filled in,
every mountain and hill be levelled,
every cliff become a plateau,
every escarpment a plain;
then the glory of Yahweh will be revealed
and all humanity will see it together,
for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken.'

Go up on a high mountain,
messenger of Zion.
Shout as loud as you can,
messenger of Jerusalem!
Shout fearlessly,
say to the towns of Judah,
'Here is your God.'

Here is Lord Yahweh coming with power,
his arm maintains his authority,
his reward is with him
and his prize precedes him.
He is like a shepherd feeding his flock,
gathering lambs in his arms,
holding them against his breast
and leading to their rest the mother ewes.

Messenger: Second Reading: 2 Peter 3:8-14

2 Peter 3:8-14

But there is one thing, my dear friends, that you must never forget: that with the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not being slow in carrying out his promises, as some people think he is; rather is he being patient with you, wanting nobody to be lost and everybody to be brought to repentance. The Day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then with a roar the sky will vanish, the elements will catch fire and melt away, the earth and all that it contains will be burned up.

Fresh call to holiness. Doxology

Since everything is coming to an end like this, what holy and saintly lives you should be living while you wait for the Day of God to come, and try to hasten its coming: on that Day the sky will dissolve in flames and the elements melt in the heat. What we are waiting for, relying on his promises, is the new heavens and new earth, where uprightness will be at home. So then, my dear friends, while you are waiting, do your best to live blameless and unsullied lives so that he will find you at peace.

Mark 1: 1-8

The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It is written in the prophet Isaiah:

Look, I am going to send my messenger
  in front of you,
to prepare your way before you.
A voice of one that cries in the desert:
Prepare a way for the Lord,
make his paths straight.

John the Baptist was in the desert, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. All Judaea and all the people of Jerusalem made their way to him, and as they were baptised by him in the river Jordan they confessed their sins. John wore a garment of camel-skin, and he lived on locusts and wild honey. In the course of his preaching he said, 'After me is coming someone who is more powerful than me, and I am not fit to kneel down and undo the strap of his sandals. I have baptised you with water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.'

Messenger: Our lives here are in this advent stage waiting for this fullness of life that we will have for all eternity with Him if we go to heaven. I long and I thirst for this presence, to feel it even more fully as I exist more completely in Him. Oh my God, I want Thee, I long for Thee, I want the Eucharist, I love the Mass, Your gifts fill my soul.

And the devil in these periods of waiting constantly convicts the soul that loves Him so dearly and wants so to please Him. The devil wants us bowed down and feeling we are not pleasing God. Oh my God, I truly live for Thee, to serve Thee and be Your Little Flower, one that wants to give you pleasure. My Jesus, the gift of Yourself is so great indeed, and my life is like an advent - waiting to be possessed by Thee for all eternity, existing in completeness in Thee. My God, I thirst after and love Thee. My life here is a barren desert compared to the glory to come.

Our Lord wished this presented here.

On December 8, 1996, Father Carter consecrated our Morrow Center to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

We received the following messages live from the rosary that day.

Excerpt from the December 8, 1996 Rosary

Jesus speaks: I am with you in a special way in this rosary. Put aside all the distractions and anxieties that you feel within your heart and come to My Heart and let Me bathe you in My most precious love for you. Oh, My little child, let go, for you are filled with anxiety in your heart and the thoughts of the day surround your mind. But I am here, and I am the Almighty God, all powerful and all mighty. I am with you. Do not fear. Feel My presence within you in this rosary. This is a time that your heart may be joined to My Heart in the tenderest love. But you must surrender, and you must let go, and you must let Me fill your heart with My words of love. I long to be so close to you.

Jesus speaks: Oh, My beloved ones, I love you, I love you, I love you. In this rosary, open your hearts that I may touch you with My love. This is an urgent call for you, My beloved ones, each one I have called to this center this day, this center that will send My light into this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I love you and I have called you here today.

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My Heart was formed within the womb of My Mother. My dear ones, I want you to be tender and loving to one another. I want you to have a heart that is full of love. You must not have division in your hearts. Division towards any person is very unpleasing to Me. I am asking you in this rosary to concentrate on love in your heart. Is your heart a heart of love? Or are there places there where you have anger and hatred that keep you from loving as I want you to? You must look into your hearts at this moment and you must rid yourselves of any division in your hearts, division toward any person. I am not divided with My beloved ones. I loved them to My death. Today I ask you to clean all the crevices of your hearts, that your hearts are filled with pure love. Look at the pure Heart of My Mother. Model your lives after the life of My Mother.

Jesus speaks: Oh, My beloved ones, in a little house in a little spot in this big world, and you think that you will carry the messages out to the world. It is only through My might that you will be the messengers. This is My lighted center to carry My messages to the world. Each one of you I have called. Each person has a mission. From the day you were born I have been forming you and molding you for this mission today. You must put aside any thoughts within your hearts that are not thoughts of love, for I need you to carry My light to the far ends of the earth. Do not focus on the trivial things of your lives, but see, through the vision of God, what I am truly asking you to do. You must be filled with love in your hearts to accomplish what I am asking you to do.

Jesus speaks: How do I make you understand the urgency of My plea, My beloved ones? For the time is at hand. I am displeased greatly with the sinfulness of My beloved souls. I am calling you. Please do not be distracted and led astray. I am calling you to help to spread My love to the far corners of the earth. You are being called, My shepherds, in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. You, you, each one of you here, this is the mission that I am giving to you. You can say "no" to Me and you can do whatever you wish. But I have called you. If you are in this room, I am telling you this is a full time commission that I am giving to you to help to spread My love to the world. You must stay focused and you must help Me. This is urgent. It is greatly through the Shepherds of Christ Movement that I will renew the Church and the world, that many hearts will be lighted with the fire of God's love, that many hearts will be consecrated. And soon the Father will look to the earth and the earth will be covered with light, the light in the hearts of those consecrated to Our Hearts.

Jesus speaks: Oh, My beloved, your hearts must be hearts of pure love. Rid yourselves of any anger within your hearts. See as the Father wants you to see. See as a family loving one another. The Father has called each of you and given you such gifts and talents. You must love one another and work to full potential to help spread My light across the earth.

Jesus speaks: This is an urgent message, My beloved ones. You are My apostles that I have called to this center this day. This is My city of light that will shine in the darkened world. As the messages of My love are transmitted in the world and in the Church, many souls will be saved. I am Jesus. Will you answer this call? I am calling you to a commitment to the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Each one of you is so special to this plan. I have called each one of you. There is so much work to be done. Will you take My love to the far corners of the earth? See the ones, the ones that are dropping into the fires of hell at this moment. They are your brothers. These, these, My beloved ones, are the lost children that Mary talked about when she appeared daily for fourteen months. But you do not hear! And My Mother appears as she appeared at Fatima and men did not pay heed. I am Jesus. The messages that I have given have been blocked. The messages of Fatima have been blocked. This is a major part of the completion of the Fatima message. When hearts are consecrated to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart, the light will shine across the earth and the fire of My love will be in every heart. You must carry these messages to the far ends of the earth and spread the consecration. There is so much work to be done! On December the 13th, 1996, I will give special messages to the world at 12 o'clock. This is My call, this is My plan for the completion of the Fatima message.

Messenger: He said He is crying bloody tears for the souls that are being lost.

The Father sends His heavenly Mother into this world and she begs and she pleads that we do something to help her children to be led back to the Heart of her Son, for many are truly on the way to hell for all eternity. Can we not help our heavenly Mother who has contacted us?

For nine months Mary said how important it is to spread the consecration to the schools to the children, to tell children to say daily and all through the day, "I love You, Jesus. I love you, Mary." and she will take care of their hearts.

The children are the sickest ones, for they are being trained by parents that are sick themselves. We must reach the children in the schools with the rosary and with the consecration. As the light steals across the sky, the light of the Almighty God, His love will illuminate the dark night. Hearts will be consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the Father will look to the earth and the once-dark-covered earth will now be covered with hearts that are hearts of light and love. This is the city of light as we spread His messages of love to the world. The wounded hearts will be healed, for love heals the wounded hearts.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

I Love You to Death, Today! 

God's Blue Book I Cover

November 15, 1993 - After Mass (excerpt)

Jesus speaks: I have come to give you life, not as the world gives, but as only I can give.

I come, you are filled. I reach out to you, you grab My hand. The power you feel. Feel My power through your whole body. You have been touched by the hand of Jesus.

Is there any question in your mind of My might? Open your eyes. My life is there and I am willing to share Myself with you. My whole life I will make known if you keep coming and sitting with Me.

Oh, My passion, My child! Meditate on this every day. Think of My agony to know what would happen, to see only as God could see every detail of every event that would follow. To feel the pain before it happened and know how horrendous it would be. All the kickings, whackings, not to mention the names and slanders against God. They were doing this to God! In all My dignity and honor, I would experience such vileness and take it for love of you.

My passion is a wealth of material to study. But I will reveal such things to you. The bottom line is what I suffered for love of you. I would do this today. I love you just the same. Oh, if you only knew! It feels good to tell someone when you are wronged. I was so silent. The incredible things they did and I was silent. My mother suffered so with this. She watched her beautiful baby in such anguish. She was silent. Her agony was so great. She endured this for love of you. You are so loved, child. Why do you ever think you need to go anywhere for this little human love? It is nothing. My love is all encompassing. My mother loves you intently. Forget those who shun you. Who cares? You need My love. You don't need their love. Come, get My love and then give it to the unloving. Don't worry.

It is freeing to love the unloving. It is drudgery to hate the unloving. It is far harder in the end to hate than to love. Just forgive them. They need help. They are willful and so sick and sad inside. They are to be pitied. They have to live with their sick ways. Forget them. You have work to do. Do My work! First forgive and forget others who are sick. Let them go entirely. Be steadfast in Me and I will talk with your tongue. You do not have to minister to any sick brothers. The more you become in Me, I minister to them through you and you do not do anything but become My servant.

Open wide your gates and let Me enter. I will use you and you will not even feel their sickness directed at you. Pray to be selfless. Pray to be used. Pray to be possessed by Me. You don't even have to pray to do well in a job or in handling a situation. You don't do it. Pray to be possessed by Me. It is I, then, Who act from you. Spend time thinking about Me and My life. Don't think about others and their sick ways. Who cares? Satan can do really vile things. Focus on the remedy, not the cure. The remedy is to let Me possess your soul. I handle it all. You needn't fume or fret or become anxious. I will tell you what to eat and what clothes to put on.

You are My babies, remember? Babies don't dress themselves or fix their own meals. They wait on their mothers. Be like babies. Wait on Me for the smallest details in your life. I will clothe you. I will feed you. I will comfort you. I will direct you. I will care for you. I will act in you. You must just be open as an open door. I go in and I fill your soul. You operate as I want you to. Have oatmeal for breakfast! I love you, little one.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Every detail I will tend to. You live in Me and I in you. Your cares are for Me and My ways. It is I Who act for you and I Who do all things through you. You focus on Me. My life, My passion, My ways, My heart, My love, My goodness. Don't think about anybody and what they did. Just come and be with Me and let Me possess your soul.

Messenger: When visiting a nursing home this is a plan you can follow to pray a little part of the rosary with the elderly or sick residents.

What is usually done and tolerated by the elderly folks is one Our Father, five Hail Mary's and another Our Father. The song, A Song from Jesus, can be sung before and after these prayers.

It is desirable to have a big picture of The Visitation when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Excerpt from July 13, 1995 rosary, "The Visitation" from the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary The Visitation Stained Glass Window 

The Visitation

  1. Messenger: The Virgin Mary goes to visit Her cousin Elizabeth. The child in the womb of Elizabeth leaps for joy at the presence of the Almighty God. Here we are in this room and the Almighty God is present, no less present than He was in the womb of the Virgin Mary. The child in Elizabeth's womb leaps for such joy! Let our hearts be filled with joy that God is here and has chosen us to be with Him. Nothing is an accident. Every hair of our head is numbered.
  2. It is in baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of heaven. We are children of God! God loved the world so much that He sent His only Son, so that we would be with Him forever in heaven. This is only a stopover on our way to eternity. The glory that awaits us is so immense that we can never comprehend it.
  3. Mary visited Her cousin Elizabeth with the child Jesus within Her womb. We are visited by Jesus in this room in such a special way! For the Almighty God is outpouring His abundant grace to each one of us at this time. Mary, help us to be more sensitive to the touch of His Grace, to realize His life, the vibrancy of this life, within us.
  4. Jesus speaks: Many are called, but few are chosen. I have chosen you, and My Mother has called each one of you to her house. This moment, moment by moment, second by second, you are being guarded and watched in this world that is suffering and in pain. You do not see the great gifts that I am outpouring to you. Open wide your heart. Let go any bitterness, anger and resentment, and live according to the Father's will. Operate in love. Do all your deeds in love, and know that your Father is guarding you. Your Mother is forever by your side protecting you. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit dwell within your heart in such intimacy. My dear ones, children of God, open your hearts and receive the graces that I am giving to you now.
  5. Come to Me, My beloved ones. I want to hold you close to My Heart. I want to caress and cuddle you and give you My love. I am Jesus, your Savior. I love you. I love you. I love you.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: When I feel tired and weary, how do I feel after I write this letter and share with you?
