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.
On clean and unclean
He called the people to him again and said, 'Listen to me, all of you, and understand. Nothing that goes into someone from outside can make that person unclean; it is the things that come out of someone that make that person unclean. Anyone who has ears for listening should listen!'
When he had gone into the house, away from the crowd, his disciples questioned him about the parable. He said to them, 'Even you-don't you understand? Can't you see that nothing that goes into someone from outside can make that person unclean, because it goes not into the heart but into the stomach and passes into the sewer?' (Thus he pronounced all foods clean.) And he went on, 'It is what comes out of someone that makes that person unclean. For it is from within, from the heart, that evil intentions emerge: fornication, theft, murder, adultery, avarice, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, folly. All these evil things come from within and make a person unclean.'
Jesus speaks: Would it not be better that you prayed for all men rather than criticized them?
Abuse and hatred from the past can be projected onto others.
I love you so much.
I come to deliver a message of love.
Love works out problems caused by differences even when it seems impossible.
Your burning desire inside should be to love and serve your God and help save souls, to bring forth fruit for the Kingdom.
Oh My beloved ones, I love you so very much. Come to Me in the Eucharist and I will bathe you in My love.
I have all the power.
Messenger: When I am weak, I am strong. For the persecution and/or cross I endure makes me more identified with Him in every aspect of my life. I live the rosary, a life so identified with His. I struggle, only to rise above it all to a purer response in Him. I am but a wounded child of Eve. Mary my Mother is the one conceived immaculate and I see myself as a doubting Thomas and a denying Peter and I am ashamed, yet the cry within my soul is one of victory for the Beloved One coming alive in the hearts that are touched by this work.
A cry of victory, from the tents of the wise, the ones once such sinners, but glorified by His precious hand, by the grace deep in our souls.
Victory for the children of Eve. A light, some shadows of darkness remain, but the hand of God paints His imprint within my soul. A Child is born and I am forever formed in that image and likeness. A Son given us, a Counselor, One most wise and perfect. In the shadow of the darkness my eyes see the glimpse of a perfect light shining from above. God is mighty. I must not harbor the thoughts that He would punish the world because of my sin, but see Him as almighty and merciful, and hear the shouts of victory in the tents of the just, the ones who live to love and to serve Him. We are but human persons with tainted fallen natures and if we saw how we too would be judged for our lack of forgiveness and love, we would stop it, all of us, and quit saying, "God forgive me", and then turn on our brothers and not forgive them. It is a journey to be as the Holy One is, to forgive and to love; to endure and to cry out, despite our suffering and our sins, "Victory is in Him", in the tents of the just, the ones who love Him and all men, who give their lives as a sacrifice for men's sins, that men will know the gospel and that they will be saved. There was One on the cross and He endured it all, for our sins, yours and mine. When we quit looking at ourselves and blame the problems in our lives on others, we fail to grow in the ways of perfected love that make us most like Him. We are all the tainted children of Eve, all in need of renewal. All marred by the sin of Adam and Eve. Mary is the only human person impeccably pure. The strength is in Him.
Is not the individual, the Church and the world in the state of becoming?
Does not our anguish, when we suffer for Him, make us more united?
Is not God with us in the dark and troubled streets?
There is not time for despair.
There is not time for morbid guilt.
There is only time for victory, seen in our lives as we put ourselves completely in His care, with all our faults and imperfections and guilt.
There is a truth within us that allows us to see our faults and to pray for a greater life in Him and continued growth at the hand of the Divine Gardener.
He, the New Adam, runs the garden. She, the New Eve, stands by His cross.
Perfection more and more will in part be achieved by seeing things as they truly are, calling a sin - a sin; by looking at Jesus crumbled up in pain on the cross and saying, "My God, I am sorry for MY sins. Save me and lead all others to heaven."
My God, my cry is for souls. Help me to lead all to you.
Jesus speaks: My child, in a time of great distress and darkness in the world, is it not understandable that the devil would want to tear My Movement to shreds?
I am sad, My child. For I am God and My voice speaks so clearly in My writings, but many, in their pride and pompousness, instead of reading and listening with open hearts, give in to the charade that is caused by a lost and jealous soul, and so many souls have been affected, while the Movement I give to help renew the Church and the world is blocked.
My children are being taught SMUT as the Virgin Mary said yesterday. My children are dying a spiritual death, My children gradually destroy their own bodies with abusive substances, and kill their hearts with the hellish poison of the world, and one wounded soul can cause such attention to block My cry for love. I give these revelations to the world. I give the rosary as the tool against Satan. My Mother clearly stated the way to peace at Fatima.
My child, the whole world has suffered from the effects of World War II on the earth because they ignored the Lady of Fatima.
What will your God do?
I give you the sign of Mary on the Building and one wounded soul can cause such havoc against an army of good souls that have been changed because of the graces I have attached to My Movement.
Your Mother Mary on the building is your sign.
The building corner collapsed is your sign.
The Falmouth flood is your sign.
When you called out, April 9, 1999, because of the smut that was used against your Church in a play performed in Cincinnati, I answered you.
Men do not take notice when the Sacred Heart of Jesus picture is thrown on the stage and people laugh and make fun of the Church and My name.
They do not notice when the children turn on the television and they use My name in vain and perform the gravest sins before the children of the earth, but when I send My Mother and she appears, when I send letters to My priests, you persecute Me and want to stop Me because the devil can create havoc through a wounded soul.
Oh My Church, your children are dying a spiritual death.
Do not stop the ones who pray constantly for your Church and your world and bring the message of the Fatima peace plan to the world.
The devil hates what the Shepherds of Christ are doing to reach souls.
The devil hates the rosary factory.
Look at the lives of the apostles that love Me with their whole hearts.
Satan is your enemy.
From the time of Eve, he has tempted and won a battle against souls.
The fight is between the devil and the soul.
My men, your children are dying.
Focus on that, the truth in it.
I cry to you that again you offend My Sacred Heart.
This is My plea for Valentine's Day.
Ask yourselves when will My Sacred Heart reign and when and how will it come about.
Do you talk of My Sacred Heart as the Center of All Hearts?
Are you asking the world to give themselves to Me?
Did not the Blue Books change the lives of so many souls, the messages I gave as love letters to the souls? And after some of you used them, you blocked them from others.
Where was your Church before My Movement began to pray?
The prayers of the holy ones are affecting the Church and the world.
I give the mighty medicine here to you.
I ask the message of March 7, 1994, be printed.
Jesus speaks: You are the city set on the hill. You will shine with the intimate love of Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie.
I am Jesus and I loved My little ones to My death. Do you know even a little about what it is to give your life for someone? Do you think of yourself and ponder yourself being this selfless? People cannot even take one hour to sit with Me. The world has made you all blind. You do exactly as you want. Meditate on My sorrowful Passion. Read My meditations on the rosary. This was My life, given for you, My little loved ones. I gave My life for you and you want more? You want more proof and signs, yet you cannot even pray a few moments after Communion!
I am the Master. I taught you about selflessness and surrender. Look at My position on the cross. Yet you hold back. You want your comfort. You want to make the world your end! Oh, you give a little. You give Me what you dole out, a little here, a little there, and say, "Okay, Lord, I'm good. I pray prayers. I spend my life doing holy things, but I am in control of what and how much I give you. I am in control, Lord. Aren't you satisfied?"
I am only satisfied when you surrender your all to Me! You give Me such little bits and pieces and you pat yourself on the back and look at the sick world and say, "Well, I am pretty holy." This is not the point. You judge, you decide, you do your own will! This is you, playing the game of running your life! You give here, you keep there. I want your all. I want your time spent alone with Me in front of the tabernacle. I want you to have an ardent on-fire love affair with Me. When you love, you give. You say to your lover, "Oh, anything you ask for I will give to you." If you ask for my shirt, I will give you my cloak as well because I love you this much!"
You don't know about love. You control your relationships with Me. Then what hurts My aching heart is how you talk about the love of God. There is not love in your actions. If you came and spent your life with Me, if you freely gave sacrifices for Me, this is love!
You look to the world and you judge yourself as doing so much. Look to Me, hanging on the cross, and judge yourself by My standards. I call you to an ardent love affair with Me. I call you to love--love of God, love of one another.
You do not have love for one another because you do not love God first. Love gives its all. Love does not seek itself. Love gives freely!
I died on the cross to teach you how to love. I am the Master. If you look to the world and judge yourself, you are not learning any lessons from Me. You must look to Me to learn from Me.
Look at Me on the cross, My arms outstretched, hanging from the cross. I gave My all! I gave Myself for love of you. I held not back a little. I held not back and I, God, could have stopped it all, but I gave you freely from the bottom of My heart with greatest love for you!
This, My sweet ones, is love. I showed you the way. I showed you surrender. I am Jesus Christ and I write to you. Do you listen? Oh, you, in your busy lives, do not surrender to Me even now.
What do I do to shake My beloved ones? You are all blind and dense. Look at how attached you truly are. You do not surrender. You do your will, you do your thing. I tell you over and over again to come and pray with Me for long periods. I tell you to pray after Communion. I write about praying before the tabernacle, but you do your will. You go to the world. You ask your questions there. You look for answers from each other. You do not surrender even one hour of your time.
I come and you receive Me, the Son of God, in Holy Communion! Do you stay and sit with Me or do you do what you want? I died for you, yet you cannot let go of even little things.
I am Jesus, Son of God. If you who profess to love Me cannot give of your life to Me, how do you expect others to learn from you? You teach as you are. You teach in your actions. Your actions are selfish and centered on self. I call you to denial of self and love of God.
One person fixed to the true life of Christ can move a mountain. You follow the world and try to do it yourself.
I preach coming to Me and sitting with Me. I, God, have all the answers. No one listens. What do I do to shake My faithful ones in their comfort?
I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I want to dwell in you and operate with the power of God. I invite you to My altar. I sit and wait with all the answers and you, in your pride, tell Me, "I am too busy."
Busy yourself for your day is at hand and you will know My might! I will shake the earth and you will listen. Then you will listen, but where were you when I gave you forewarning? You are waiting for the big boom. I am calling you now to listen to Me here.
Play your safe game. Waste your time. I am God and I am talking to you. You do it your way. I sit with the answers. Every answer is given here. I want My beloved ones to read these letters. I grow so tired of your foolishness. I am God and you are busy. Die to yourself, child. I showed you the way. I lead. You must follow Me!
I am your God. You shall have no gods before Me! Do you pray to Me in silence? You want your answers given to you. You want My love given instantly as you demand. I am waiting for a love affair with you. The fire of love is enkindled. Love is time spent together. Lovers sit together for long hours and learn to know one another. Would you give so little of yourself to develop a love affair with Me? I sit, I wait. I am there at every moment in all the tabernacles of this world, and you are busy!
Time is so short. One moment and it is up in smoke.
All that remain are the things of God. You are here to know, love and serve Me. I am sending out an urgent plea to publish all these messages--now.
These letters will turn the cold hearts to love. Do you not think I have all the power? You tarry, you deliberate. I grow tired. I am God and no one listens. You want Me your way. You want Me to come your way.
I sweetly tell you, in My gentle love letters, that I come, Jesus, the Son of God, gently in Communion. You are numb and blind. You want Me to roll drums and blare trumpets, but I come in the quiet moments. I roll no drums, I blare no trumpets. I come and you miss My calls!
What do I do to shake you? I, in all My might, can rock you off your rockers. I try to prepare you but you are too busy. Hold on to your last piece of dust and watch it go up in your face!
I am Jesus Christ, Son of God and I write to you and who pays heed here? This should tell you of your attachment to worldly things. You want proof. You look the other way. I am God and you contain the mighty medicine for this sick world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Do you listen? Look at Me, dying on the cross. I gave My all for you. Do you not think I would send a mighty medicine this day for you? You are so blind. You do not listen.
I, God, talk here to you this very day.
Jesus speaks: I tore open My Heart and gave you My intimate letters of love and you spurned Me.
On March 22, 1994, I showed you a sign that I meant to be taken to heart. I write because I love you.
My men, I cry to you. God has painted the Virgin Mary on the building in Florida, the golden Lady Clothed with the Sun, and you do not see her.
My men, what does it take?
I gave you the Mass Book, My book to lead so many to the Mass, and it was blocked. Oh My men, the Falmouth flood was not an accident.
My men, the Lady appearing on the corner of Drew and Rt. 19 in Florida is not an accident.
Do you hear the voice of God, or do you focus on the evil one creating havoc to stop My Movement?
I loved My souls to My death.
This is the mighty medicine for the sick world. What will happen to the sick children? You are destroying the gifts I send you.
I love you so much, please pray as I have instructed.
The greatest graces are attached to the prayers I give you.
I loved you to My death on the cross.
February 9, 2000 - Second Message
Messenger: My dear Jesus,
I love you and I want Your strength. I am not afraid. I come to do your work. Fear is from the evil one. Perfect love casts out fear.
Jesus speaks: My child, I write to you of fear. Fear paralyzes. Fear of what may happen is useless, for you do not know the wind and whence it comes.
My child, I show you My Heart and tell you to trust.
Messenger: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.
My Jesus, I love you, I know this. I love you so much, my Jesus. I believe in all You have given me. I give myself to you now. I want to quit writing and be with you so deep in my heart united to the Father and the Holy Spirit. This gives me such comfort.
Jesus speaks: My child, keep saying, "Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee."
My child, I love you so much. My child, I want you to come to Me and do not fear. The fear Satan tries to bring to your heart leaves you paralyzed. My child, I come to set the captives free. Satan with his ugly snarl wraps you in his web, but, My child, you are the master. My child, the fight is between good and evil, and men do not see it. They see themselves as perfect and want to fix "the other person". My child, you go at the end of your life by yourself. You do not take a friend. Clean your own heart. I love you. Jesus.
Witness Letter - Sheila W.
Written January 14, 2000
Jesus has led me gently and gradually into closer union with Him through Shepherds of Christ. From the Prayer for Union that I found in church, to the first time I read a Blue Book, to my first 13th meeting, to starting a prayer chapter in my parish, He has patiently led me into doing things I didnt know I could do.
I have loved Shepherds of Christ from the beginning because I have experienced Jesus' guidance in a special way.
And here I am, a Handmaid of the Good Shepherd, being a spouse of Jesus, loving and serving Him here in China, Indiana. For many years, I wanted to work for Jesus in the Church, but didnt know how.
The daily Mass and holy hour were a part of my life before I knew about Shepherds of Christ or the Blue Books. Reading the Blue Book for the first time confirmed what I was already doing and gave me the direction on how to spend that hour with Jesus before the tabernacle.
During the last few years of my working days, I looked forward to the time off so I could spend it with Jesus before the tabernacle. I purposely did my housework during the weeknights so I could have Saturday totally free to spend with Him before the tabernacle.
So, to be here in China, where I can focus totally on Jesus, loving and adoring Him in the Eucharist, and helping to send out His newsletters and filling the orders, is a dream come true for me.
Being a handmaid has been a joy and a challenge. A joy to know this is Gods will for me and a challenge to change myself and to let go of the things I am attached to.
I am now sitting before Jesus, in the exposed Blessed Sacrament, and I am thankful to Him that He has fulfilled my heartfelt wish to be able to love and serve Him 24 hours a day and to adore Him in the Eucharist.
I am also grateful to Jesus for letting me work with the most selfless people who are in Shepherds of Christ. They are always willing to help me out when I need them and go the extra mile to make things easier for me. It is a blessing to be in this family called Shepherds of Christ.
I am also thankful for my friends back home who have been a great support to me, who have prayed for me and helped me to move to China.
On the 13ths, when everyone is gathered for the rosary here in China, I look at the people and I feel a connection in my heart to all of them, to my friends from Jasper and my Shepherds of Christ family and I thank Jesus for loving me through these beautiful people.
And I thank Jesus for leading me to the Shepherds of Christ and for teaching me so many things, especially how to be a better spouse of the Lamb. It is my heartfelt desire to be united with Him forever and He is continuing to lead me there a step at a time. I love Him with all my heart and I love the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
