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.


Jesus speaks: Today you are faced with death. At the end, the decision will be made, did you live to serve Jesus, the King, or did you make Satan your master?

When people are tired and the night is dark, many look for pleasures to please the body. In the morning light, after the sleep has refreshed you, your spirit is more attuned to the things of God. In the dark you may stumble and fall, in the light you see the beginning of a new day.

The beginning of a day creates the feeling of beginning in your heart. The people of the earth live by the lights and the time, and are aware of the ticking clock and the darkness that soon descends on the earth as the day ends. After some darkness and what follows in the early hours, there is but more deep darkness for these earth-bound people.

I come in those hours to deliver these messages. At the first sign of the rising sun, your heart is in a different mode. It can be followed by despair if you have spent the night in sinful ways, or in great joy for the night is over, and on the horizon comes the morning beauty of the rising sun, fresh as a new babe, a gift to My earth. I cover the earth with light, the air is crisp and refreshing and you climb from your slumbering sleep and you receive the gift of a new beginning.

I hung on the cross for three agonizing hours, the sky was darkened, the sanctuary veil torn, the claps of thunder were heard, Jesus the Son of God dies and is laid in a new tomb, hewn out of a rock.

You are laid in your beds at night and every day I give you the beauty of a new day, the light to surround you. You begin with hours to spare.

Who will you serve? Will it be God or mammon? My time for you on this earth is short. One moment and it is up in smoke.

A fifty-eight year old man dying of cancer has only one thing to focus on. Something will soon change. His body is deteriorating and he can't control it.

The ticker ticks for you as well, but Satan has deceived you into thinking it will never end. You know that everyday the sun has come up all your life despite how dark the night before.

My children, I control the lights in the sky. At Fatima the sun came crashing to the earth, or so it seemed. If the sun came crashing at you, would it wake you today?

I control the elements, I control the air you breathe and the beating of your heart.

The clock ticks. You will receive a reward that you cannot imagine if you endure to the end serving your God.

Endurance My children, I speak of endurance and then the end.

One day will be your last day on earth. You never awake to see the day's light again. The world goes on after your passing and your works are left behind, the seeds of love you sewed.

What will your seeds say? Christ has died , Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Spread the Good News. I give you a garden to plant in the hearts of men. You will be judged on how you loved and served the Lord.

Heaven and hell are forever, this is a testing place.

The night never ended for they went to a fiery furnace for the deeds that tore the hearts of men away from their God.

You are an example, you are teachers, you leave behind you a legacy of your works and your life that is passed on to others, many others in future generations.

Do you want to enjoy splendor in heaven? Or experience pain in hell, while others are led into sin long after you are gone because of your works and example?

Every day has its night and the reaper came and separated the sheep from the goats.

This is a warning, if you listen and heed you will be wise men. They followed the star. I am the Light of the World. I am the Light. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man come to save you from your sins.

Addiction

I love you, I speak because I love you. Following God's Commandments will guide you in your life. To use substances to alter your behavior for foolish pleasure or to relieve stress is very dangerous. I address this issue. You are to control your appetites, this is a level of holiness. Abuse either way is not according to God's will. Using drugs illegally is wrong. I cannot tell you the damage done to your body or your heart and soul. Is it right that you take control and alter the chemicals in your body because you have allowed yourself to develop an uncontrollable habit? Who is in control, then, when the substance is used because you are addicted to it? You become a slave to another master. It is not the Master, your God. How do you break the addiction when your body craves it and you cannot quit? Who is thinking when you operate? Who operates you? How many days are lost, precious days your God has given to you to serve Him, when you have chosen to give your body over to drugs or alcohol? There are uppers and downers. There are drugs that relax you, drugs to make you feel high. Caffeine and sugar can be used abusively. Does your body operate on a drug that you have chosen to regulate it? Then who operates your body: the coke, the pill, the drink, the smoke, whatever the case may be? I do not write to make you feel guilty for eating a piece of pie or smoking a cigarette. I write to you because I love you so much. Who is your Master? I want to be the Master of your soul. Illegal use of drugs is against the Father's will. The drug addict rationalizes his situation. He is driven by the drug. The alcoholic is driven by the alcoholic drink. A person can be driven by caffeine, a smoker by nicotine. I ask you to pray hourly if you think you are or could be abusing substances. I ask you to pray to the Holy Spirit daily to help you. Continue praying for yourselves.

The ultimate escape is suicide. Abuse can be carried to extremes. One may live on drugs because of an addiction, another may not take anything because they don't want to even use the drugs prescribed by the doctor. Some doctors sometimes tell people to take something they do not need. Pray for your doctor, he is in a position of authority. Consecrate his heart to Jesus and Mary and spread him with the Blood of Jesus. Pray for all in authority that they will act in My name as servants of God. The devil leads people to misuse authority in order to create chaos. You are Mine, pray that the Blood of Jesus be spread on the Church and the world. Please, I implore you, pray that you know the benefits of praying the Holy Spirit Novena, Shepherds of Christ Prayers, and rosary novena as I have instructed. Oh My beloved spouse, see yourself as My spouse and let Me operate in you. I want to possess your soul. I tell you this because I love you so much. You must live in God's will in everything. When you deviate and do your own will, when you know it is opposed to God's will, you will suffer and everyone around you. I love you, I love you so much. Jesus.

March 12, 1999 - Second Message

Messenger: At the Eucharist, I saw the Host transparent above the Host and Father's hands were so important. I kept seeing the Host, it was different than before, it was 2/3 as big and it had three dimensions.

Even the pix on the altar had a little transparent Host above it after the Consecration.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do you feel we can better serve God and promote loving union with one another by each of us spending one hour alone with Jesus every day?
