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: I plead and I beg for grace. My beloved brothers, only His grace will change the hearts of men. The movies play all day, all summer on TV and in the theaters, teaching the world their twisted messages. The message that sex is permissible outside of marriage, that illicit sex is permissible to achieve a "good" is a twisted message that makes right - wrong and wrong - right. The message that allows evil men to dismember other men before the eyes of those in the theater and is done in gory ways that prolong the act of evil, and gives reminders all through the movie to bring up the already evil episode to create morbid emotion, is an evil message. The more children are permitted free reign watching anything that the theater and video stores, cable TV and other sources put forth for their young minds, the more evil our society becomes. I want to quote Revelation about the beast, chapter 13 Revelation. This chapter follows the two witnesses of chapter 11 Revelation, and the Woman Clothed with the Sun of chapter 12 Revelation.
The dragon delegates his power to the beast
Then I saw a beast emerge from the sea: it had seven heads and ten horns, with a coronet on each of its ten horns, and its heads were marked with blasphemous titles. I saw that the beast was like a leopard, with paws like a bear and a mouth like a lion; the dragon had handed over to it his own power and his throne and his immense authority. I saw that one of its heads seemed to have had a fatal wound but that this deadly injury had healed and the whole world had marveled and followed the beast. They prostrated themselves in front of the dragon because he had given the beast his authority; and they prostrated themselves in front of the beast, saying, 'Who can compare with the beast? Who can fight against it?' The beast was allowed to mouth its boasts and blasphemies and to be active for forty-two months; and it mouthed its blasphemies against God, against his name, his heavenly Tent and all those who are sheltered there. It was allowed to make war against the saints and conquer them, and given power over every race, people, language and nation; and all people of the world will worship it, that is, everybody whose name has not been written down since the foundation of the world in the sacrificial Lamb's book of life. Let anyone who can hear, listen: Those for captivity to captivity; those for death by the sword to death by the sword. This is why the saints must have perseverance and faith.
The false prophet as the slave of the beast
Then I saw a second beast, emerging from the ground; it had two horns like a lamb, but made a noise like a dragon. This second beast exercised all the power of the first beast, on its behalf making the world and all its people worship the first beast, whose deadly injury had healed. And it worked great miracles, even to calling down fire from heaven onto the earth while people watched. Through the miracles which it was allowed to do on behalf of the first beast, it was able to lead astray the people of the world and persuade them to put up a statue in honour of the beast that had been wounded by the sword and still lived. It was allowed to breathe life into this statue, so that the statue of the beast was able to speak, and to have anyone who refused to worship the statue of the beast put to death. It compelled everyone-- small and great alike, rich and poor, slave and citizen--to be branded on the right hand or on the forehead, and made it illegal for anyone to buy or sell anything unless he had been branded with the name of the beast or the number of its name.
There is need for shrewdness here: anyone clever may interpret the number of the beast: it is the number of a human being, the number 666.
Messenger: Is not our television and movies, media, etc., given improper authority to speak? Our money is spent on these movies, for gory movies that teach such evil. And the young and old have this money to spend.
I show you the Woman Clothed with the Sun.
I give you the message of Mary.
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.
(End of Mary's Message)
Messenger: I tell you this, nothing will change the hearts but His grace. We must unite to the Mass and pray the rosary as Mary has said. The more we reach the Spanish speaking people, the more people will pray as God has instructed.
Jesus speaks: America has not responded to My Movement, to Mary's Image, to God's Blue Book. Only when men begin to pray will the world be turned to light.
The more I am blocked, the more the evil one will spread his hatred and evil to your children, and who will teach them the truth? Your children are indoctrinated now with sinful untruths and violence, and you do not recognize it.
I have given you the building in Florida.
There is no money for the rent.
My hand is raised, you must pray as a body, as a nation. What more can a just God do to reach you, My pitiable earth?
Your children are being contaminated, your own minds become twisted.
I beg you to respond and listen to Me.
You can spend billions of dollars on your sports stadiums, operas, entertainment and no one has funds to help buy rosary beads or preserve the building for My purposes to help bring about the Reign of My Sacred Heart.
I am a God of justice.
I am a God of love.
I loved you to My death on the cross.
Who is your God?
I ask you to look at the sign given here, My beloved earth. I love you so, I cry bloody tears.
Messenger: I see Jesus hanging over in the garden sweating blood, an embryo in His hand and underneath the ground, fires with souls in them.
I pray that you will hear His plaintive cry and that of Our Lady.
Revelation 12: 1-2
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.
Messenger: I beg you to help me to reach the world with the importance of the Morning Offering, the books and priestly newsletter, and the importance of praying the prayers for the priests, the Church, and the world as He has instructed.
Oh please help me.
Oh my God, hear the plaintive cry of those on the earth, help us spread the Morning Offering and the knowledge of the Eucharist and the prayers and the rosary, please give us the funds to do so.
Please help us.
June 20, 2000 - Second Message
Mary speaks: I cannot hold back my Son from punishing the earth for the crimes committed against God.
Blessing on the faithful
How blessed are all who fear Yahweh,
who walk in his ways!
Your own labours will yield you a living,
happy and prosperous will you be.
Your wife a fruitful vine
in the inner places of your house.
Your children round your table
like shoots of an olive tree.
Such are the blessings that fall
on those who fear Yahweh.
May Yahweh bless you from Zion!
May you see Jerusalem prosper
all the days of your life,
and live to see your children's children!
Peace to Israel!
Messenger: We cannot be wrongfully attached to anything, any person, any place. We cannot make our children, others, drink, alcohol, drugs, caffeine, food our reward for living. Our connection must be to Him. All things, persons, etc., are there in our lives and we must live according to His will. We do all things for His glory, not to give us vain pleasure. We do not use things as an end in themselves. We love our children and others because this is what God wants, but they do not become our god, they are not the end. They are His instruments to serve Him also. Wrongful attachments to persons and things lead to unhappiness. We must realize we were created for Him.
The music and the world, many times, tries to brain wash us into thinking another person is the end. Children grow up and leave the house. Some parents can't make the transition very well when the children leave because they tried to live their lives of utopia through their children. In the end we want all those closest to us to live to serve God first and not us first, not to be our slaves, but to be living to do God's will. The Our Father is so important.
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.
Messenger: This is not to underestimate the importance of intimate family relationships. God wants us to relate intimately with one another, but how many people have lost their connection to God and made the relationship with another the end in itself, centering their whole lives and all their thoughts around another, only to find that only God will satisfy us as our hearts desire. We were made for God. Our souls crave Him. All relationships with others must have God as our end. We must want God's will for all those we relate with. We must realize He is most important in their lives and we are not the end in relationships.
Really, it may sound like the significant others in our lives are separate from Him. This is not so, loving others according to God's will is connected with Him. We strive to love them (the others) in greater oneness in Him, loving them so intimately as He does, loving them to lead them to have lives that are more rooted in Him so that they will live their lives being the persons God desires them to be. We want our friends and family members living fuller lives as they become more one in Him. Our primary focus is our oneness with Him and our oneness with the other IN Him, living holier lives according to God's will.
The music of today is so deceiving, many songs imply that a certain person will satisfy us. Soon after the excitement of the physical aspect of the relationship is over, the lure wares off. We look for children, houses, jobs, drink, dance, whatever, to help us. All these things must be used according to God's will, or they make us unhappy.
The devil can work in alcohol and bars to control us. Alcohol affects the brain. We increasingly lose control of ourselves the more we use drugs and abuse alcohol. Mind altering substances can be used by Satan to lead us off. God wants purity in all things. We are here to serve Him.
