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: I want the booklet for consecration of the homes to Our two Hearts circulated immediately. I want very many copies made. It can be simple, I want it done. I want May and June to be a time that all consecrate their families to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Click on the message, May 5, 1995, Consecrate Your Churches, Home, and Workplace to Our Hearts (in the consecration booklet.)

Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done on Earth as It Is in Heaven

Messenger: Do we want the Sacred Heart of Jesus to reign on the earth?

A message for the Earth from Jesus
January 22, 1998

I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.

Messenger: We must make Him the King of ourselves and everything we possess.

We are under Him.

We must pray for this. We must pray for our Church and our world.

We are all children of the Father's family.

Each one must make Jesus the King of his heart.

Every home must make Jesus the King of their home.

Every family must make Jesus the King of their family.

Every church must make Jesus the King of the church.

Every school must make Jesus the King of the school.

Every business must make Jesus the King of the business.

Jesus must be the King of all we possess.

We live to serve Him.

Every little family, business, church, school is a little kingdom in His Kingdom.

The more people and places are consecrated to His Heart and the Heart of His Mother, the more He will Reign on the earth.

We all have our little part to do. Let us consecrate ourselves, our homes, our businesses, our lives, our churches, all we come in contact with to His Sacred Heart.

We all have our big part in the whole world, the Father's family. We entrust the whole world to His care. We must see that if we do not realize that we are connected to the whole, praying for it, the individual family will suffer. We exist as a unit in the world.

We must start with our own individual hearts and also work to help our family, our church, our business, those we know become more like God intends them to be.

We must see ourselves and our lives as so important.

We must see ourselves connected to everybody else in the Church and the world.

We must see the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as our Center.

Every home must be a little kingdom of light in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus reigns and the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the Queen. Eve sinned, Mary our spiritual Mother is sinless. She leads us to the Heart of her Son.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje

Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

Messenger: Every church is as a little kingdom in the big Kingdom doing the work of the whole.

February 23, 1994, Jesus gave the message, A City Set on a Hill will Shine to the World, Blue Book II.

A second message stated: Priests will create little cities, little cities of light.

Excerpt from I Died For You

God's Blue Book II Cover

Jesus speaks: Listen and preach My love and emotion here. Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses.

I am God, My little ones. God can do all things. I can make your cities light up the darkness. I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I am the light of life. I am God! I can do all things. I want to act in you. You need to be in constant union with Me. My priests, you need to be selfless. My soul and yours are one. I want to act in you.

Hold not back. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

Messenger: The message began with Jesus lamenting and lamenting how He died for us and what more do we want. I heard Him and I told the person He told me to speak to, but concerning the pain in my heart and His words as He spoke them, I cannot put on this paper.

He said so strongly, "I DIED FOR YOU! I DIED FOR YOU!"

This year on February 23, 1999, Jesus told us to begin the Holy Spirit Novena, Shepherds of Christ prayers and rosary novena at 6:20 p.m. for 108 days. This may be extended later, but His desire is we pray this way for 12, 9 day periods.

From today's Mass, a reading from 2 Samuel 7:4-5, 12-14, 16.

2 Samuel 7:4-5, 12-14, 16

But that very night, the word of Yahweh came to Nathan:

'Go and tell my servant David, "Yahweh says this: Are you to build me a temple for me to live in?

And when your days are over and you fall asleep with your ancestors, I shall appoint your heir, your own son to succeed you (and I shall make his sovereignty secure. He will build a temple for my name) and I shall make his royal throne secure for ever. I shall be a father to him and he a son to me; if he does wrong, I shall punish him with a rod such as men use, with blows such as mankind gives.

Your dynasty and your sovereignty will ever stand firm before me and your throne be for ever secure."'

Messenger: A letter of Paul to the Romans, 4:13, 16-18, 22.

Romans 4:13, 16-18, 22

Not justified by obedience to the Law

For the promise to Abraham and his descendants that he should inherit the world was not through the Law, but through the uprightness of faith.

That is why the promise is to faith, so that it comes as a free gift and is secure for all the descendants, not only those who rely on the Law but all those others who rely on the faith of Abraham, the ancestor of us all (as scripture says: I have made you the father of many nations). Abraham is our father in the eyes of God, in whom he put his faith, and who brings the dead to life and calls into existence what does not yet exist.

Abraham's faith a model of Christian faith

Though there seemed no hope, he hoped and believed that he was to become father of many nations in fulfillment of the promise: Just so will your descendants be.

This is the faith that was reckoned to him as uprightness.

Revelation 19:6

And I heard what seemed to be the voices of a huge crowd, like the sound of the ocean or the great roar of thunder, answering, 'Alleluia! The reign of the Lord our God Almighty has begun;...

Revelation 5:9-10

They sang a new hymn:

You are worthy to take the scroll
and to break its seals,
because you were sacrificed,
    and with your blood
you bought people for God
of every race, language, people and nation
and made them
    a line of kings and priests for God,
to rule the world.

Messenger: I want to be one with Jesus in this Sacrifice, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, offering it for our world, taking all the sin deep within my heart, uniting to His sacrifice, mounting the altar and begging God for grace and mercy for our world, for me, and all the people in my family -- the family of the Father. Will you unite with me, with all your heart and soul and offer a perpetual sacrifice uniting to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered around the world for our family, the Father's family? Can we unite in her Immaculate Heart and His Sacred Heart and offer our every moment in the Morning Offering in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary?

Lucia's Vision

Messenger: On the Feast of St. Joseph in 1994, I was at St. Gertrude's Church and a light came down from the top of the church to the left and Mary appeared in great light in the same position as in Lucia's vision. Behind was the beautiful crucifix where I heard the Father speak January 9, 1994, and where Jesus was transfigured on the cross August 20, 1997.

"Come back to Me."

He cries out to us: "Come HOME TO ME. You are sinners. I died to save you." Listen to Him. Do you hear the voice of the Good Shepherd?

Study Lucia's vision.

The Church's life centers around the Eucharistic Sacrifice.

On March 26, 1996, I had the great vision.

I see the world and the Blood of Jesus dripping on it with the vision of Lucia over it.

Revelation 12:10-11

Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life.

Messenger: They conquered the evil one by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.

We must join in oneness as the Father's holy family and offer sacrifice. We must offer a pure and holy sacrifice in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the New Adam and New Eve. We must tell God we are sorry, and be one with Jesus in offering this sacrifice to the Father in the Holy Spirit through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Jesus speaks: My beloved priests, within your hands you hold the power for this enormous grace I merited to be outpoured on your Church and your world, streams of life-giving water.

You must unite in the holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary and be one in this eternal Sacrifice, united as the Body of Christ making reparation for your sins.

I speak and I say LISTEN TO ME.

Hear My voice, My children. My sheep hear My voice and they follow Me.

I am the Good Shepherd. I gave My life for you. I died to save you.

Unite in one body all through the day and pray.

1 Corinthians 15:24-28

After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

Revelation 5:13

Then I heard all the living things in creation -- everything that lives in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, crying:

To the One seated on the throne
    and to the Lamb,
be all praise, honour, glory and power,
for ever and ever.

Messenger: Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in Thee.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, save us.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, open our eyes to this great Sacrifice you give to us.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, we love you.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, we are one family in you.

My beloved God, we love you so much.

Help us to do what we can do to lead the people to what we were put on this earth for.

Help us, we are brothers and sisters in the Father's family, created to love God and love one another.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.

Help us to help save souls. Help us, we plead and we beg.

Jesus, I Want to Be with You A Song from Jesus

Messenger: The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign on this earth and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. We must make Him the King and Center of our hearts and make Him the King of our homes, churches, businesses.

St. Joseph, we love you. Thank you for being the foster father of Jesus and for your modeling and for your powerful intercession. We turn to you on this feast and beg for your intercession to God for the souls of this earth.

I received this message at St. Michael's Church. In this same church I received the message, January 15, 1994, "I am Here in the Tabernacle." I remember Him, He was SO strong. He shouted this message, "I am the King on My throne and I am ignored."

I Am Here in the Tabernacle

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 15, 1994 9:15 a.m.
St. Michael Church

Jesus speaks: You come here and I am waiting. Let go of all distractions Satan busies your mind with. You have come to adore your King. Block out all and focus on the King of Glory.

I am Jesus. I am God. I am your all. I am God. Worship, honor, glory--all is My due. Blow the trumpets, sound the horns! There are others to walk about, but no thought, not even a prayer, for the King of Glory.

I am very sad and hurt by all who neglect Me and do not come to Me as I sit here. Where are they? I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. If for one instant I were to cease to think of them, they would cease to be, but they do not even realize Who I am. My hHeart is so sad. What do they think, for their busy lives? They are in the presence of a King and they don't even recognize Me!

It delights Me so that you have come to Me. I love you with such intense love and I want to give you so many gifts. Come and be with Me in silence. Sit and I will help you block out distractions. I am the King of Glory. I am God. If people come to My house here, it is not to pray, outside of Mass. They come to fix the church and miss the King of Glory. Blind! How blind they are!

Blessed be the name of God. At His Name every knee must bow. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God and have spoken to you, My child. Be with Me. Tell your friends to come and bang on the doors to My church. The priests lock Me up all day. Those who want to come cannot get in! Tell them to come and adore Me and open My doors.

The Carpenter

God's Blue Book III Cover

June 12, 1994

Jesus speaks: You are he who goes to a carpenter to learn to make a cabinet. You know nothing. You do not have any idea of what you are to do. The carpenter knows exactly. He has a procedure whereby his plan will be accomplished. Every detail must be observed. He is the Master. You do not have the talent. You need talent to do woodwork. If you were given the talent and the directions, you could accomplish this task with such beauty.

I am the carpenter. You are he who needs to be taught. You lack the talent. You need the gifts of the Spirit to accomplish My task! You come to Me in total ignorance. You are open, the Spirit fills you with the gifts. You have everything you need to do My work. The Father created you to accomplish His tasks. You are perfect. You must come open. You must know the plan. The plan is His Will for you. If you do not follow the plan, the cabinet will not be built correctly.

I am the Master. I guide you. I love you. I give you all you need. I walk you through every move. If you try on your own, you have a problem. You know not the way to build cabinets. You know not the way to Me on your own. You must come to Me to be taught. To go it alone is to your own detriment.

Oh, little one, it is so simple. You, in your will, want to work your own plans. You know not how to do it. Only I can teach you what you need to know. Oh, please come to Me. I have all you need. The Spirit fills you with the gifts to know, love and serve God. To go it alone is like trying to build the cabinet with no knowledge of woodworking. Oh, little ones, I love you. Come to Me. Let Me teach you. The Will of the Father is the happiness for your life.

I am Jesus Christ, Son of God. I am God. I, God, long to be with you and teach you. Go not off on your own. Come to Me. I love you so!

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How often can we go to Mass together each week? How does it make me feel to go to Mass with you?
