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: On March 24, 1999, I was told to write about Father Dominic.

The message I received from Jesus and never appeared on the Internet was this:


Message of March 24, 1999
Not included in original Internet daily message

Jesus speaks: Circulate the writing of Fr. Dominic to priests.


Messenger: IN ME! When I am in the state of grace God is IN ME in a most special way, Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

The secret to the interior life is Christ is in me.


Galatians 2:19-20

I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me. The life that I am now living, subject to the limitation of human nature, I am living in faith, faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.


Messenger: IN ME! I receive the Eucharist and Jesus is IN ME truly present in His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

This is why it is so important to remain with Him in these moments after Communion.

The devil attacks the interior life. It is a treasure that God gives us this sharing in this life of grace.

If we stay in the state of grace, we are never alone, for Christ is in us in a most special way.

In dealing with our brothers, the ones in the state of grace, they are possessed by God in a special way.

They may act of their own free wills in ways not according to His will, but unless they sin seriously, God lives and dwells in them in a most special way.

How offensive it is to Our Lord, if we think we are better than they. If we are holy, it is because of His grace.

That process of being transformed more and more in His image and likeness goes on so profoundly after the reception of the Eucharist.

The devil will create all kinds of distractions to lure us from this most sacred time. We offend our Lord by taking it so lightly, but we are the losers.

If one is in serious sin, it is a serious sin to receive the Eucharist.

Why should we ever be afraid of man and events here if we realize that God is dwelling in us?

The devil's tactics is power over. The devil plays with power tactics. Authority is set by God. He has authority over His creatures. He gives authority to them. We come in His name if we are living according to the Father's will.

Everything is for a purpose. Man may think he is so smart to delete things in God's word. Everything is there for a purpose.


Matthew 24:34-35

In truth I tell you, before this generation has passed away, all these things will have taken place. Sky and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.


Messenger: At the end of the Bible, in the Book of Revelation, it states:


Revelation 22:18-19

This is my solemn attestation to all who hear the prophecies in this book: if anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him every plague mentioned in the book; if anyone cuts anything out of the prophecies in this book, God will cut off his share of the tree of life and of the holy city, which are described in the book.


Jesus speaks: To the one who teaches and wishes to change My word, I charge this, you are not to rationalize how you have such authority.

All authority is under My feet.


1 Corinthians 15:25

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.


Messenger: He is the Head. We are under His feet.

His word is sacred. He is the Word.


John 1:14

The Word became flesh,
he lived among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
    as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.


John 1:1-5, 9, 11, 14

In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being
    except through him.
What has come into being in him was life,
life that was the light of men;
and light shines in darkness,
and darkness could not overpower it.

The Word was the real light
that gives light to everyone;
he was coming into the world.

He came to his own
and his own people did not accept him.

The Word became flesh,
he lived among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
    as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.


Messenger: How do we know His word? It is from knowing Him, having a personal relationship with the Word.

The devil has created all kinds of blocks in our young and in some older through would-be scholars who change the word and interpret it in various ways.

The devil is getting away with this.

Some would-be scholars are changing the meaning of His word and deleting some, adding and detracting from it.

Some are teaching our young at an early age the wrong information so the world cannot savor in their hearts.

 

Holy Thursday, April 1, 1999

Dear Jesus,

I just want to identify with You on this day, feel Your love inside. Oh Jesus, but if You gave me the suffering I could not bear it too well. I am weak. I feel I know a much about the agony in the garden already. It is my burning desire to help reach Your souls, my Beloved. We suffer so many blocks and I feel I know so much of Your great and glorious love for men and I want them to know You, Jesus, especially in the Eucharist. Oh Jesus, that summit of the intense union with You is all I seek. I feel I am in a desert land much of the time, yearning and wanting You so much. Sometimes, Jesus, You give me this grace to just specially love You. I like it when I love You so easily and love all souls. Oh Jesus, Your love can be compared to no other. I want it more and more. I want knowledge of You more and more deeply. I want You, Jesus. There is always that craving inside to go deeper and to be satisfied. There is the craving to be existent in You in the deepest joy, the desire to be completely wrapped in Your embrace with no more wanting, being satisfied completely by Thee. Oh sweet beautiful Jesus, You are all I seek. I want that oneness with You, being united to You and with all others in You.

Oh Lord, come to me and possess my soul!


Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

Messenger: JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD.


Excerpt from the Eucharistic Heart Booklet
Message of March 8, 1996

Bread of Life
(John 6:32-35)1 Jesus answered them:

"In all truth I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, it was my Father who gives you the bread from heaven, the true bread; for the bread of God is the bread which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."

"Sir," they said, "give us this bread always." Jesus answered them:

"I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever hunger; no one who believes in me will ever thirst."

The New Manna
(John 6: 48-58)1 "I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the desert, and they are dead; but this is the bread which comes down from heaven, so that a person may eat it and not die. I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world."

Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" Jesus replied to them:

"In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in that person. As the living Father sent me and I draw life from the Father, so whoever eats me will also draw life from me. This is the bread which has come down from heaven; it is not like the bread our ancestors ate: they are dead, but anyone who eats this bread will live for ever."

Many Graces Will Be Granted
Jesus:
My beloved Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, I have called you to a special apostleship, My beloved ones. I am crying out to you from My Eucharistic Heart to pray as you have never prayed before. The power, My dear chosen ones, is in the Eucharist. Your world is in a very serious state. The Church, the pope, the bishops, the priests, the Sisters and Brothers are all in need of tremendous prayer power.

You have been called to the quiet of the tabernacle to take your prayer petitions to My Eucharistic Heart. The renewal of the Church and the world is at hand. From the prayers you pray here, many graces will be granted.

I am calling all in this Movement as well as all others in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to consecrate their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother. All through the day I am calling you, priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including children, to give your hearts to Me and to My beloved Mother. As you dwell in Our Hearts you will be one with each other.

Come to Me with your petitions. I am truly present in the tabernacle, no less present than the day I walked the earth. I wait for you to come and to pray for your Church and your world. Many graces will be given there for the priesthood and those in the religious life. I have chosen each priest and sister and brother in the religious life to help spread My love to this world. The highest calling is to be called to the priesthood. The calling I give to My beloved priests, sisters and brothers is a special spousalship to Me. How My Heart is wounded by the priests and sisters and brothers in the religious life who have turned worldly. I, the almighty God, call them to such a deep intimate love affair with Me and they go to the world for their love.

When the religious are fixed in My Heart many will be fed by My burning love.

The world is in a state of urgency. The Church in part has become worldly. The medicine for the hurting world is My burning love. Nothing, nothing will feed the starved soul but the love of God. I am calling you to pray for My holy priests, to pray that all priests come to a state of deep holiness.

I have called you as part of the Shepherds of Christ Movement to join in prayer before Me and to beg for graces for your Church and your world.

The renewal of My Church and My world will be helped greatly through many giving themselves to this movement.

At Fatima My Mother said that, until a sufficient number of faithful are consecrating their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother, there will not be peace in this world.

In the Shepherds of Christ Movement including the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement, I am reaching the priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including the children - with this Consecration.

As you dwell in Our hearts you are one with us. As you give yourselves to our Hearts, you are one in our Hearts. These movements will prosper for all are joined in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. You will proceed ahead in one heart and one mind. You will be more joined as a true family, brothers and sisters, living according to the will of your heavenly Father and dwelling in the heart of your heavenly Mother.

Oh, beloved children, in these movements you have been hand-picked and chosen for this mission by Me. I am giving to you such graces to unite more and more deeply to My Heart. You will be one with each other and one with God. As you dwell in My Mother's heart and My Heart, you unite with the Father in the Holy Spirit.

You are especially chosen, my apostles, to help carry My love to this world. As you join in this oneness with Me, I live in you and you in Me and I am alive in this world in a special way through this union.

I have called you to this apostleship, I am guarding your every breath, I am giving you abundant graces to help carry out the plan of the Father. "Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:28)1

Bring the cares of the Church and the world to Me. I am waiting to give you all you need. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I live this day in the world. I am truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Come to Me and I will live in you.

I love you, I love you, I love you. I am your beloved Savior, Jesus.

(End of March 8, 1996 message.)
