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.


Holy Thursday Mass and toward evening.

Messenger: I saw my groom and I saw the white dress of my bridal day as I walked about this earth.

I am proud to wear white, for I am His bride.

Oh sweet Jesus, do I dare approach You on this special night as Your bride?

I saw myself with the wedding dress and train, and His tender eyes looked on me with such love on this night, Holy Thursday, the night of the Last Supper.

He gives Himself to me so completely in the Eucharist, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

My life is in the state of becoming more pure for Him.

My white a sign of His undaunted love for the Church, His Bride.

Children are born, the weary travelers grow to be more perfected in Him.

Our food is His Body.

The gift to His Bride - Himself.

The child is born to adore Him, to be wed to Him.

Was ever a bride so honored as to be the bride of Christ? No man can compare to this Groom, the perfect One Who waits with such love for His spouse.


Holy Thursday - Second Reading

1 Corinthians 11, 23-26

For the tradition I received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, 'This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.' And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.' Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord's death until he comes.


Messenger: THIS IS THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB TO ME.

I saw Him transfigured, I saw Him dead on the cross, I remembered all the times He acted so intimately on my soul and it was all one in that Holy Sacrifice, and so awesome, the gift of Himself to me.

Jesus speaks: The devil leads people to tell lies and then he leads them to blame others for the lies.

Such is the cunningness of Satan and I was beaten for their lies and the deception of the men.

They beat Me and tore My flesh.

All power is in Me. I am the King of Glory, they whipped Me, they tore My flesh, they hung Me on the tree.

I came to save them. The couple ate from the tree which was forbidden to them.

I am Love. My glory shines in this, in My love.

A body covered with blood, I shone victorious before the Father.

In My persecution and death, I won the victory.

A Son was slain for their sins, and I hung plastered against that dark day. The Father knew all the sins of all who put Me there.

There are no lies hidden from your God.

There is nothing you can hide.

God knows the most intricate workings of the heart, and the men grapple for their power, but God has all the Power.

In the end, all will be held accountable for their rash deeds. The sinner will be punished for his sins, if he does not repent. Only God has the power above men.

And so today you can string Me up high, which is what you do when you hurt one another. What you do to each other, you do to Me.

I am the King of Victory. I am Victorious, I am God.

I turned My body over to those who hung Me on the tree.

Some men live for power, to be at the top. They spend their whole lives seeking power, money, acceptance. Their castle is this earth. The men of the earth worry what people think of them, for their intention is to be above them and to rule.

To one who walks My way follows One Who did the will of the Father. The more one is deeply rooted in Me, the more that person produces fruit.

The devil works to get power. He tries to cause division in the authority, he tries to usurp the power. A proud man, one who follows the devil, will never admit he is wrong. He will always justify himself, even when he has committed error. He will work from one error to another, covering up any blame on himself. He sees himself as perfect. A humble man walks in truth. A humble man wants to resolve issues in love.

A man that is being prompted by the devil works in any way he can for himself. He sees himself as the goal. He lies to protect himself, he wants all to think he is perfect. He spends his life grappling for the top and is careful that no one is ever over him.

He walks in his name and not My name.

I am the New Adam, the One Who did God's will to My death.

Adam did his own will.

Whom do you follow? Do you walk in your name or God's name?

If your whole life is lived to not have suffering here below, to seek pleasure, and to try to get rid of all pain, then you are not following My footsteps. I am the Suffering Servant. The Suffering Servant knows that God's way many times is a way of the cross. He embraces that moment and lives in it.

A man can sin, and then lie to cover up his evil. He judges others and sees himself above them. He twists the commandments and tells himself it is alright that he did what he did, that he was justified. He sees himself and his goal. He does not obey the commandments, he has changed them to fit himself. He seldom says he is sorry, seldom looks at his faults. He blames others, using them as scapegoats for his own imperfections.

I was the Victim. I accepted My cross. I took upon My back your sins. The ugliest sins of deception and hatred, I paid for all the sins with My Blood.

I paid for the ugliest sins with My Blood.

I paid for the lies and the hatred.

When you did it to others, when you cursed them and make them bleed, you did it to Me.

Oh, pray My men. Some grapple for power, they say the have been offended and justify their perverse actions. Some are always looking to be made a victim so they can act harshly and without love.

When they persecuted Me, I loved them. This is not to say that you must withstand the beatings of others. Some force themselves on you, and you are caught off guard. Others in relationships use the relationship for power for themselves. But in the end the one who walks in My name, loves his persecutors and enemies. He sees their evil deeds and knows what is right. My men, there is My way, My truth that you must follow.

Some will take advantage of accidents to get power. They are insecure and want power over others.

Some lord power over children, or significant others. They want power over someone.

Some manipulate relationships so they can dominate, making others overly needy.

On that dark day, the lightning cracked, I paid for all your sins.

In the end, all your hidden lies and other sins will be brought to light.

No man will go unjudged.

No man will escape death.

No man can get by with ill deeds that he has not repented for.

Do not be afraid of the hands of men. I know every deed and the disposition of the heart.

Be afraid of the loss of your soul. That is what you must fear. Your God is a God of justice and right, all powerful and never changing.

Men come with their sins and hurt others. They offend Me, and they will not get away with unrepented sins, sins that are seeking false power. I will crack the earth and separate the sheep and the goats. I have sent you warnings, for I love you so much.

Listen and obey your God.

Peace and Justice will kiss.

God pays all according to their deeds.

This is the season of love. See Me hanging on the cross to My death. You are My precious soul, I died for you, I paid for your sins with My Blood. I want you as My bride, the spouse of the Lamb.

I want you to love each other, and not try to be the winner, but work for peace, solving problems in truth and in love.

Listen to each other, ask God to help you to put aside hurt feelings of the past and look at the situation at hand, always loving the other as I love them.

What you do to each other, you do to Me.

Live the moment.

Make your moments treasures. Live in the present moment. Do not see the whole past and the whole future and bring it all up in a disagreement, try to concentrate on the matter at hand, referring to the past only as needed. Some things of the past and future must be handled.

I love you, Jesus. I am your Spouse.

Revelation 21: 1-8

The heavenly Jerusalem

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, ‘Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God–with–them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.’

Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. ‘Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true." Then he said to me, ‘It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son. But the legacy for cowards, for those who break their word, or worship obscenities, for murderers and the sexually immoral, and for sorcerers, worshippers of false gods or any other sort of liars, is the second death in the burning lake of sulphur.’



John 19: 6-11

When they saw him, the chief priests and the guards shouted, ‘Crucify him! Crucify him!’ Pilate said, ‘Take him yourselves and crucify him: I find no case against him.’ The Jews replied, ‘We have a Law, and according to that Law he ought to be put to death, because he has claimed to be Son of God.’

When Pilate heard them say this his fears increased. Re–entering the Praetorium, he said to Jesus, ‘Where do you come from?’ But Jesus made no answer. Pilate then said to him, ‘Are you refusing to speak to me? Surely you know I have power to release you and I have power to crucify you?’ Jesus replied, ‘You would have no power over me at all if it had not been given you from above; that is why the man who handed me over to you has the greater guilt.’


Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.
