Palm Sunday 2005


Today is the 11th Year anniversary of

Fr. Carter's first public message.

Holy Saturday April 2, 1994.



April 2, 2006

Jesus speaks:              A big bump on the head and you see stars.
                                I gave you your Mother in Florida, but even
                                those who I have called lack faith to move
                                ahead as I have directed. You can see how
                                nothing has happened with Our Lady of
                                Clearwater because they would not believe.
                                This angers your God after such a gift was given
                                and the failure to recognize that man
                                destroyed the image of the Virgin Mary to
                                help make reparation to God for the offense.

                                    Today is the anniversary of April 2, 1994 the
                                day of Fr. Carter's first public message. He was
                                faithful he openly stated that commitment
                                was taking time.

                                    The devil works to try to threaten to
                                fill with fear, to show lack of commitment,
                                He wants instability. While I give you signs as
                                solid as Mary's face and My Blue Book writings
                                you come to shake the foundation
                                you may say
                                "there will be no head, I have this power"
                                "there will be no money - follow this with I have this power"
                                "there will no place to go - I have this power."

Messenger:             A person who marries doesn't test the other for
                                power. There is love. They want the commitment.
                                Fr. Carter loved the Movement Fr. Carter was
                                faithful A person giving themselves in
                                religious life commits if they do not
                                they struggle every day with their lack
                                of commitment they challenge structure
                                they are unsettled they are not married
                                to Jesus in this religious commitment
                                their ring means little and it can
                                easily be removed.

Jesus speaks:              For one in religious life wearing My
                                ring they are married to Me, they want
                                to serve Me as I desire and give their
                                lives in this service with joy.

                                    Judas betrayed Me. In his heart
                                was betrayal. He lied. He did not show
                                his real face.

                                    A person that lies and has secrets
                                in an intimate relationship is a person
                                on the fence. They are never at peace. They
                                will not surrender.

                                     On the fence a motor runs should
                                I go this way or the other way and satan tempts
                                them constantly. They can do God's will
                                they can go the way the devil wants to
                                take them.

                                    The devil works in temptation a
                                man marries a woman and he may say
                                is that all there is? His attention to her
                                may be lacking, his heart roving, his
                                desire to make some other conquest
                                for he will not settle down and watch
                                the garden he planted grow

                                    His garden is uncared for, he spends
                                little time at home and he is on the
                                fence he really likes the little wife
                                waiting for him while he has secretive
                                affairs, joys, excitements

                                    The error is in his lack of commitment
                                to his vocation. He put on the ring and where
                                he was called to go in and make a happy
                                settled life and commit himself he
                                began his lies while he lived on
                                the fence motor running.

                                    Do you know about commitment? If
                                you have a vocation, you commit, you
                                don't give into satan's temptations to
                                keep you on the fence.

                                    A superior, the pope, the bishop
                                tries to establish stability, a jealous
                                person under helps to show
                                instability while attacking authority.
                                Where stability could be twice as strong
                                with their support they challenge
                                and try to get power by making
                                everyone fear.

                                    Look at children in a marriage
                                mom and dad are one and stable little
                                babies deal with love and both parents
                                as the children grow they see this
                                solidness they are not afraid.

                                    Case two mom and dad fight, one or
                                both will not commit one or both
                                is not there there is constant conflict
                                dad may have the idea she waits while
                                he does whatever he wants or mom may
                                have a job and running around leaving
                                dad with the children.

                                    There is definite instability children
                                are confused they can't go to either
                                parent to feel stability

                                    parents are unsettled, confused,
                                uncommitted causing disharmony
                                one parent may be totally living by
                                God's will very stable while another
                                plays the game of unpredictability and

                                    As one builds up and does God's will
                                the other plays games of control and
                                unpredictability which tears down

                                    You say well the one should
                                not put up with the unpredictability
                                would greater stability for the children
                                occur in a divorce when new children
                                and new spouses enter in.

Messenger:                 What about the commitment to
                                marry for better or worse is that old
                                fashioned is that what God wants
                                for the short 20 years of the children's

Jesus speaks:              You who have all the answers
                                if they are not rooted in My
                                Word, they are not My answers.
                                I give you My Word and the Commandments.

                                Without structure there is pandemonium.
                                A person who fails to recognize authority
                                can use manipulation to get power
                                to leave a place unsettled

                                    They will never be under and they
                                will make havoc to be in control.

                                    A person from a divorced family may
                                live with division in their heart.
                                In dealing with others, 
                                they must seek the unity I desire and
                                not give into past learned ways of
                                dealing with separation.

                                    My Church is one united
                                in love working through imperfections
                                living by My Commandments, My
                                Word in love living to do the
                                Father's will. Where children are taught
                                division, a strong parent rooted in
                                LOVE and truth, My Word the
                                commandments, teaches mighty lessons.

                                    But if the person thinks they are self-
                                righteous, judging rashly, thinking
                                they are better than others because of
                                their holiness they have anger already
                                in their heart

                                    Anger and love do not co-exist in
                                peace. A person truly loving as I am
                                loving is out to promote oneness
                                and love not judging making themselves
                                high on the ladder for their own

                                    A person called to be a leader
                                leads for God not for their own
                                self promotion. They love all wanting
                                oneness on the earth and give to
                                promote the Kingdom of God
                                according to God's will.

                                Love is the answer.

                                People who live being sneaky to their
                                spouse, to their superior, to Me
                                have a problem.


John 8: 31-32

To the Jews who believed in him Jesus said:
If you make my word your home
you will indeed be my disciples;
you will come to know the truth,
and the truth will set you free.

Messenger:            To know God
                               To know the purity of God's truth.
                               Christ does not cover-up.
                               Look at Him hanging on the cross. 



Excerpt from January 5, 1999

Messenger:  On January 5, 1997, I was wakened by Our Lord and He was mumbling as He was around my bed as He did on October 8, 1997, when He delivered the "Seedless, Barren, No Fruit on the Vine" message.

    I heard Him and He repeated the words over and over again. I had a copy of the all-night message on the floor, I jumped from the bed and began to write around the message, for it was the only paper available and He was speaking very plainly and direct. I wrote this message in the margins of the paper. He kept repeating "BABY, BARE BABY, LAID BARE".


Message of January 5, 1997

Jesus speaks:  Open yourself, Oh Jerusalem, your time is come you will be a light to the people in darkness, many will walk whence you come and the earth will be shakened and the light will come across a dark sky and enlighten their minds.

Oh stiff-necked people, you are so stiff in your ways, let the spirit envelope you and lead you on your way.

A country of stiffs, a people of planning and prodding, of deliberating and wonderingyou lack faith, Jerusalem, you lack faith in God.

Oh walk naked into the cold night, you are cold in your hearts and naked in your clothingI cloth you with glory, I light your face with light, but you turn your cheeks to the darkness and stay stiff-necked in your hearts. Oh cold and dark hearts, reach for the light that you may know the glory that awaits the sinners and enlightens their minds.

Messenger:             Christ asked me to open my heart
                                and to tell you what is in me.

                                This makes a person vulnerable

                                I open my heart

                                You are sneaky.

                                A person in a marriage that opens their
                                    heart and shows someone their
                                    pure love
and living by the
                                    commandments is doing what
                                    God wants

                                    and the two shall be one flesh
                                    a person who lies to another

                                    hiding relationships on the side
                                        is disobeying the vows of marriage.

Jesus speaks:             I showed you Judas and I loved him
                                so much. He betrayed the Savior with
                                a kiss.

Messenger:             Fr. Carter was totally committed to this calling
                                    God gave him.

                                I as God's messenger am committed to
                                    my calling to run the Shepherds
                                    of Christ as He has dictated
                                    through Fr. Carter.

Jesus speaks:            Did you ever see a worm?
                                Did you ever see a snake?

                                A person wanting to be high on the
wants others under
                                    their feet - crawling

                                A person in authority living by
                                God's will is not this type

                                They live as I dictate hanging on the cross

                                I was obedient to the Father.

                                I loved those under Me to My death on the

                                A person with a heart of anger, cannot
                                    love, they continue punishing for
                                    self gain or because they were

                                To not have structure is pandemonium.
                                    Structure in love is My way.

                                    I love the Church.
                                    She is My Bride.
                                    I am the Bridegroom.

                                    My Church is to be loving.
                                    My Church is to produce fruit for
                                        the kingdom.

                                A jealous person can be judgmental,
                                    discrediting authority,
                                    having secrets,
                                    filled with pride,
                                    creating confusion.

                                The devil comes to rock the boat!!
                                    The devil wants disharmony.
                                    The devil wants disobedience.

Messenger:             Denying a problem when there is one
                                    is not the way to build up the kingdom.

                                When we know the truth,
                                    we walk in the light,
                                    we expose the darkness

                                In this is freedom.

                                We need to turn the truth light on
                                    to expose the hidden anger
                                    and bitterness of our lives
                                    rather than blame an
                                    innocent person today for our
                                    hatred from the past.

Jesus speaks:            A man had a big, big gouge in
                                    his gut
when a child came
                                    by he hollered ugly things ridiculing
                                    the little boy.

                                What was the man's problem was not
                                    the little boy, but his own
                                    big gouge.

                                Sue was born after her brother
                                    Mike. Soon after that Mary
                                    was born.

                                Sue and Mary were so cute and people
                                    always noticed the cute little

                                    Mike was jealous his life long
                                    no one told him how good he was.

                                Jealousy is a real issue that blocks
                                    My work, but a major set back
                                    like a betrayal can rock someone
                                    in ways they have closed off
                                    their heart forever.

                                There are many people who once married
                                    many years, wake to find the person
                                    gone and the marriage ended

                                    no word
just gone.

                                For that person to displace their pain
                                    on others while they wear a
                                    hard heart is to hurt others


                                Where love is given
                                    the joy of God's light shines

                                 Where hardness,
                                     lust are there - a person is
                                     not free

                                A mummy is wrapped in cloths.

                                I was wrapped in a burial cloth
                                    I came forth victorious from the

                                I dropped the cloth.

                                Come out of your tombs.


John 11: 1-45

There was a man named Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister, Martha, and he was ill. It was the same Mary, the sister of the sick man Lazarus, who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair. The sisters sent this message to Jesus, ‘Lord, the man you love is ill.’ On receiving the message, Jesus said, ‘This sickness will not end in death, but it is for God’s glory so that through it the Son of God may be glorified.’

    Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus, yet when he heard that he was ill he stayed where he was for two more days before saying to the disciples, ‘Let us go back to Judaea.’ The disciples said, ‘Rabbi, it is not long since the Jews were trying to stone you; are you going back there again?’ Jesus replied:
   Are there not twelve hours in the day?
   No one who walks in the daytime
   having the light of this world to see by;
   anyone who walks around at night
   having no light as a guide.

   He said that and then added, ‘Our friend Lazarus is at rest; I am going to wake him.’ The disciples said to him, ‘Lord, if he is at rest he will be saved.’ Jesus was speaking of the death of Lazarus, but they thought that by ‘rest’ he meant ‘sleep’; so Jesus put it plainly, ‘Lazarus is dead; and for your sake I am glad I was not there because now you will believe. But let us go to him.’ Then Thomas—known as the Twin—said to the other disciples, ‘Let us also go to die with him.’

   On arriving, Jesus found that Lazarus had been in the tomb for four days already. Bethany is only about two miles from Jerusalem, and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them about their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming she went to meet him. Mary remained sitting in the house. Martha said to Jesus, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died, but even now I know that God will grant whatever you ask of him.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Your brother will rise again.’ Martha said, ‘I know he will rise again at the resurrection on the last day.’ Jesus said:

   I am the resurrection.
   Anyone who believes in me,
      even though that person dies, will live,
   and whoever lives and believes in me
      will never die.
   Do you believe this?

  ‘Yes, Lord,’ she said, ‘I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who was to come into this world.’

   When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in a low voice, ‘The Master is here and wants to see you.’ Hearing this, Mary got up quickly and went to him. Jesus had not yet come into the village; he was still at the place where Martha had met him. When the Jews who were in the house comforting Mary saw her get up so quickly and go out, they followed her, thinking that she was going to the tomb to weep there.

   Mary went to Jesus, and as soon as she saw him she threw herself at his feet, saying, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.’ At the sight of her tears, and those of the Jews who had come with her, Jesus was greatly distressed, and with a profound sigh he said, ‘Where have you put him?’ They said, ‘Lord, come and see.’ Jesus wept; and the Jews said, ‘See how much he loved him!’ But there were some who remarked, ‘He opened the eyes of the blind man. Could he not have prevented this man’s death?’ Sighing again, Jesus reached the tomb: it was a cave with a stone to close the opening. Jesus said, ‘Take the stone away.’ Martha, the dead man’s sister, said to him, ‘Lord, by now he will smell; this is the fourth day since he died.’ Jesus replied, ‘Have I not told you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?’ So they took the stone away. Then Jesus lifted up his eyes and said:

   Father, I thank you
       for hearing my prayer.
   I myself knew that you hear me always,
   but I speak
   for the sake of all these
      who are standing around me,
   so that they may believe
      it was you who sent me.

   When he had said this, he cried in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’The dead man came out, his feet and hands bound with strips of material, and a cloth over his face. Jesus said to them, ‘Unbind him, let him go free.’

Many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what he did, believed in him

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.

                                    it is your focus and

                                    you are always pressed on

                                        control, manipulation, judging

                                    his tricks and you give into him.

Jesus speaks:              Don't you think it's up to you to
                                    commit and give stability
                                    that is needed to others.

                                 Make your vows to each other again
                                    if you are married.

                                 Make your commitment to Me if
                                    you are a religious.

                                 Any lack of truth to your intimate
                                    other can be suspect and
                                    lead to greater division later.

                                    You must place high value on
                                 your lives and work with each

                                        respect and love

                                        not use any other for a scapegoat
                                            for your pain.

Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Genesis 28: 13-15

And there was Yahweh, standing beside him and saying, ‘I, Yahweh, am the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac. The ground on which you are lying I shall give to you and your descendants. Your descendants will be as plentiful as the dust on the ground; you will spread out to west and east, to north and south, and all clans on earth will bless themselves by you and your descendants. Be sure, I am with you; I shall keep you safe wherever you go, and bring you back to this country, for I shall never desert you until I have done what I have promised you.’

James 2: 15-16 

If one of the brothers or one of the sisters is in need of clothes and has not enough food to live on, and one of you says to them, ‘I wish you well; keep yourself warm and eat plenty,’ without giving them these bare necessities of life, then what good is that?

                                  Praise Me with your heart and

James 3: 5-6

So the tongue is only a tiny part of the body, but its boasts are great. Think how small a flame can set fire to a huge forest; The tongue is a flame too. Among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a whole wicked world: it infects the whole body; catching fire itself from hell, it sets fire to the whole wheel of creation.?


John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world: 
he gave his only Son, 
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish 
but may have eternal life.

Words of Surrender of a Soul

Today Lord, (today's date), I give You my entire will-

I give You all my liberties, I want to love and serve You as You desire.

I surrender myself to You.

I ask You to run my life.

I ask You to help me act like You, Jesus, and like Your Mother Mary.

God, this day I consecrate myself to You.

I am  (name) , Your beloved child, guide me on my way now as I go about my day (or if in Church) as I leave Your Eucharistic presence
