Messenger: I write now as He summons me to. I had suffered a very hard time in my life, especially in the late 1980's, and before I began hearing the words September, 1991, "Feed the hungry". For a period of so many weeks, I heard this constantly day and night, until late October, 1991, when Jesus began giving me messages. I did not know what was happening. I was not in any of the Marian movements. I knew nothing of private revelation. He began giving me passages that were like the writings in the Bible, calling Himself Jesus, the Son of God. I hid the notebooks under my bed, but I lived by the messages and my life began to change quickly. I was as a bird coming out of a cage, for I knew Him so personally.
One night in the 1980's, I was in my living room. I always had the Sacred Heart picture on a table with a vigil light in front. I was going through so much suffering in my life, I carried the Sacred Heart picture with me in my pocket, under my clothes next to my heart. I knew Him then and knew He would help me. I had a picture inside the kitchen cupboard and I would open it and look at Him. I would be up many nights with my Jesus and when I looked at His picture, the Sacred Heart picture (the picture in the front of the Blue Books), He would glow and look so real. Looking at this image of Jesus and carrying Him with me was my comfort in all my trials.
On this night--and this never happened to me before--I was praying to Him and begging for help. I had a whole wall filled with mirror tiles. I saw a door frame over a door. I do not even know how it happened. The door was dark and then it began, a golden light slowly filled the door, not all at once. It started at one part of the door and then the entire door was filled with light. Soon the wall was covered with light, a shoe was before a staircase. I heard the following and I quote it below. I had written it in the margins of a pocket-size book near me and I saved it. I do not remember writing anything much after that until after September, 1991, when I heard Jesus tell me to feed the hungry.
"I am the light of the world and the light shineth in the darkness. The darkness is filled with the light. If you look for the light you will see the light. Walk in the way of the light. If you go away from the light, it gets darker. The closer you are to the light the brighter it gets. Fear not, do not be afraid, for I am the Light of the world."
The intense agony continued in my life, but I became more and more dependent on Jesus. I began sitting before the tabernacle and I quote from the beginning of Blue Book I, TO THE READER.
Excerpt from TO THE READER in God's Blue Book I
Messenger: Jesus wants to share His love with you. He comes in these letters to tell you how you can be in intimate union with Him.
All of us possess everything we need to have an intimate union with Him. He has written to me since October of 1991. For at least a year I sat in front of the tabernacle and begged him to talk to me. I wanted words. I prayed to the Holy Spirit and begged and begged Him to baptize me. After a long and seemingly endless search, trying to hear God, He told me to "feed the hungry." For six weeks this was all I heard. I thought maybe I wasn't feeding my children well or eating well enough myself. What a long wait for three words! At long last one day, as I was writing to Jesus, I received a letter back. He told me, "I am Jesus, Son of the Living God." I did not want to write this but it kept coming-and so many other messages. I knew nothing of anyone getting messages. I wrote them, reluctantly, and hid my notebooks. The letters kept coming-a lot in the night-and I would be awakened by long letters which I felt compelled to get up and write down. I read these letters privately and my life began to change. I felt a new life within me.
Messenger: In the times before the tabernacle I would have visions of doors, one was partially open. I thought it meant my troubles would become less and less, I would have worldly satisfaction and peace. In the early days of the revelations, I saw some doors.
The last vision I had of a door was between Ascension Thursday and Pentecost, 1998. It was then I saw the golden door filled with the most glorious reflective light against a very dark wall. Then I saw a little sheep that hobbled over the threshold and went in.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus is temple of God and gate of heaven. I thought open doors meant greater satisfaction and peace here. I soon learned that it meant deeper and deeper union with our beloved Sacred Heart.
Today that door I believe I saw in the 1980's was the golden door that has led so many from a less personal relationship with Him to a deep personal union with His Sacred Heart.
The treasures we seek are found within the Heart of Jesus. They are not cars and houses and material things that we need to live and survive. The treasure is life in Him, knowing the love of our beloved Savior, the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
In the Litany of the Blessed Virgin, we say "Gate of heaven".
In the Litany of the Sacred Heart, we say, "Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven."
Jesus speaks: My beautiful ones, I give you Myself in the Eucharist. I am Jesus Christ, the Sacred Heart of Jesus. If you lost all those things you hold onto so tightly, would you then seek the things your hearts and souls really crave?
You are selfish. Thank your God and be grateful. Take the mud out of your eyes.
Please put "Thank You Prayer", after the Scripture John, Chapter 5:1-9.
After this there was a Jewish festival, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now in Jerusalem next to the Sheep Pool there is a pool called Bethesda in Hebrew, which has five porticos; and under these were crowds of sick people, blind, lame, paralysed. One man there had an illness which had lasted thirty-eight years, and when Jesus saw him lying there and knew he had been in that condition for a long time, he said, 'Do you want to be well again?' 'Sir,' replied the sick man, 'I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is disturbed; and while I am still on the way, someone else gets down there before me.' Jesus said, 'Get up, pick up your sleeping-mat and walk around.' The man was cured at once, and he picked up his mat and started to walk around.

You must follow the Master.
