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.

Messenger: My heart becomes bigger and bigger as every moment I live in Him and I am connected in my heart to all. I live His Life, Death and Resurrection in my life, dying and rising in Him.

Lack of love, of understanding, of living according to His will hinders His flow of grace in us and this connection.

Messenger: The connection is in the Heart.

We are one body in Him.

He is the Vine, we are the branches.

We live in Him.

In consecration we become one in Him united to all others.

He is all powerful!

He is Love!

We must dwell in His Heart.

There must be connection.

Jesus speaks: This is My Movement.

In the Reign of the Sacred Heart, I will reign in all hearts, I am the Head.

I will be King and Center of all hearts.

Living as a body means being connected. If a toe says I don't have to stay connected, then it cannot live as part of the body, it withers and dies.

No one can go off on his own.

I have the Plan. I am the Divine Reaper. For My grace to flow abundantly in the Vine and be in you, you cannot disconnect from the Vine.

I speak of My Reign.

The world is so far off from the plan the Father has for His children.

I am the Head of the Body, you are the members.

On a vine the nutrients flow through the branches, if a stem breaks off and becomes disconnected, it soon withers and dies.

John 15: 5

I am the vine,
you are the branches.

Jesus speaks: This message comes to you through the hands of love. I want to grace the earth, fill the earth with My love.

You do not comprehend the plan. You are products of this world. They have trained you. I come to tell you of the things of God so that I will live in you more abundantly, and you shoot My messenger in the foot. It is My foot you shoot. I give you the messages. You are My body, I teach you, you learn My wisdom given you, then some turn on the messenger I send. Are you not the same as those who tested Me when I sent the messengers to you?

Sunday's First Reading

2 Chronicles 36: 14-17, 19-23

The nation

Furthermore, all the leaders of Judah, the priests and the people too, added infidelity to infidelity, copying all the shameful practices of the nations and defiling the Temple of Yahweh which he himself had consecrated in Jerusalem. Yahweh, God of their ancestors, continuously sent them word through his messengers because he felt sorry for his people and his dwelling, but they ridiculed the messengers of God, they despised his words, they laughed at his prophets, until Yahweh's wrath with his people became so fierce that there was no further remedy.


So against them he summoned the king of the Chaldaeans and he put their young men to the sword within the very building of their Temple, not sparing young man or girl, or the old and infirm; he put them all at his mercy.

He burned down the temple of God, demolished the walls of Jerusalem, burned all its palaces to the ground and destroyed everything of value in it. And those who had escaped the sword he deported to Babylon, where they were enslaved by him and his descendants until the rise of the kingdom of Persia, to fulfil Yahweh's prophecy through Jeremiah: Until the country has paid off its Sabbaths, it will lie fallow for all the days of its desolation--until the seventy years are complete.

A new hope

In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia--to fulfil the word of Yahweh through Jeremiah--Yahweh roused the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia to issue a proclamation and to have it publicly displayed throughout his kingdom: 'Cyrus king of Persia says this, "Yahweh, the God of Heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and has appointed me to build him a Temple in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all his people, may his God be with him! Let him go up." '

John 15: 5

I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusCling to Me

God's Blue Book I CoverMay 13, 1993 

Jesus speaks: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

John 17: 21-22

May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
    and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
    it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
    you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.

1 Corinthians 12: 12-26

The analogy of the body

For as with the human body which is a unity although it has many parts--all the parts of the body, though many, still making up one single body--so it is with Christ. We were baptised into one body in a single Spirit, Jews as well as Greeks, slaves as well as free men, and we were all given the same Spirit to drink. And indeed the body consists not of one member but of many. If the foot were to say, 'I am not a hand and so I do not belong to the body,' it does not belong to the body any the less for that. Or if the ear were to say, 'I am not an eye, and so I do not belong to the body,' that would not stop its belonging to the body. If the whole body were just an eye, how would there be any hearing? If the whole body were hearing, how would there be any smelling?
      As it is, God has put all the separate parts into the body as he chose. If they were all the same part, how could it be a body? As it is, the parts are many but the body is one. The eye cannot say to the hand, 'I have no need of you,' and nor can the head say to the feet, ' I have no need of you.'
      What is more, it is precisely the parts of the body that seem to be the weakest which are the indispensable ones. It is the parts of the body which we consider least dignified that we surround with the greatest dignity; and our less presentable parts are given greater presentability which our presentable parts do not need. God has composed the body so that greater dignity is given to the parts which were without it, and so that there may not be disagreements inside the body but each part may be equally concerned for all the others. If one part is hurt, all the parts share its pain. And if one part is honoured, all the parts share its joy.

Jesus speaks: This is My Movement to renew the Church and the world - the connection is in the hearts. You must feel connected as a member of the body of Christ to all Masses celebrated in the world.

Beg as a body for oneness. Beg for this unity.

John 15: 5

I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;

Jesus speaks: I AM GOD.


First Reading from today's Mass

Isaiah 65: 17-21

For look, I am going to create
    new heavens and a new earth,
and the past will not be remembered
and will come no more to mind.
Rather be joyful, be glad for ever
at what I am creating,
for look, I am creating Jerusalem
    to be 'Joy'
and my people to be 'Gladness'.
I shall be joyful in Jerusalem
and I shall rejoice in my people.
No more will the sound of weeping
    be heard there,
nor the sound of a shriek;
never again will there be an infant there
    who lives only a few days,
nor an old man who does not run
    his full course;
for the youngest will die at a hundred,
and at a hundred
    the sinner will be accursed.
They will build houses and live in them,
they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

Gospel from today's Mass

John 4: 45-54

On his arrival the Galileans received him well, having seen all that he had done at Jerusalem during the festival which they too had attended.

Second sign at Cana
The cure of a royal official's son

He went again to Cana in Galilee, where he had changed the water into wine. And there was a royal official whose son was ill at Capernaum; hearing that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judaea, he went and asked him to come and cure his son, as he was at the point of death. Jesus said to him, 'Unless you see signs and portents you will not believe!' 'Sir,' answered the official, 'come down before my child dies.' 'Go home,' said Jesus, 'your son will live.' The man believed what Jesus had said and went on his way home; and while he was still on the way his servants met him with the news that his boy was alive. He asked them when the boy had begun to recover. They replied, 'The fever left him yesterday at the seventh hour.' The father realised that this was exactly the time when Jesus had said, 'Your son will live'; and he and all his household believed.
     This new sign, the second, Jesus performed on his return from Judaea to Galilee.

Messenger: Do we see Jesus as He heals the sick so they can live on earth?

Do we not realize how He can heal those who are sick spiritually if they cooperate with His grace so they can live forever in heaven?

Jesus speaks: My children,

April 3, 2000 - Second Message
Given March 28, 2000 after 6:20 prayers.

Messenger: What our souls crave is Him.

We can look and search everywhere, even in doing work for Him, ultimately it is His presence we desire, it is Him, not a job, a girlfriend, TV, golf, food, money, a car, cruises and trips. What we seek is Him.

Jesus speaks: On Tuesdays tremendous graces are giving for spiritual healing - tell all apostles not to miss Tuesdays for healing.

Grace is outpoured to you when you go to the tabernacle.

You cannot do this work without a daily dose of extra grace.

I give apostles the way of life so that tremendous grace will be released so they can endure the struggles with Satan.

Messenger: I just want Him so much. I just long to be with Him before the tabernacle.

Jesus speaks: In the three days of darkness you will be connected to all your comrades in your hearts through consecration, through dwelling in Our Hearts.

You will pray, all day, while others will panic and fear and be at a point at which they cannot take it.

Mental torments are anguishing. Get the rosary in the hands of all. It is a comfort.

Get beeswax candles. Be prepared, for the Bridegroom comes in the night to take the bride in, home with Him.

The Home being the interchamber of the Heart of the Divine Bridegroom.

Mary speaks: I am the spouse of the Lamb,

I am Mary your Mother.

Ours is a union of oneness.

You are to dwell in Our Hearts.

Come to me, my children, I will take you home to the Heart of My Son, Jesus.

I am Mary Immaculate, your Mother, Mary. I appear to you as the Lady Clothed with the Sun.

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.
