Hebrews Chapter 3


Christ higher than Moses

That is why all you who are holy brothers and share the same heavenly call should turn your minds to Jesus, the apostle and the high priest of our profession of faith. He was trustworthy to the one who appointed him, just like Moses, who remained trustworthy in all his household; but he deserves a greater glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house is more honoured than the house itself. Every house is built by someone, of course; but God built everything that exists. It is true that Moses was trustworthy in the household of God, as a servant is, acting as witness to the things which were yet to be revealed, but Christ is trustworthy as a son is, over his household. And we are his household, as long as we fearlessly maintain the hope in which we glory.

How to reach God’s land of rest

That is why, as the Holy Spirit says: 

If only you would listen to him today! 
Do not harden your hearts, 
   as at the rebellion, 
as at the time of testing in the desert, 
when your ancestors challenged me, 
and put me to the test, 
   and saw what I could do 
for forty years.

That was why 

that generation sickened me 
and I said, ‘Always fickle hearts, 
that cannot grasp my ways!’ 
And then in my anger I swore 
that they would never enter my place of rest.

Take care, brothers, that none of you ever has a wicked heart, so unbelieving as to turn away from the living God. Every day, as long as this today lasts, keep encouraging one another so that none of you is hardened by the lure of sin, because we have been granted a share with Christ only if we keep the grasp of our first confidence firm to the end. In this saying: If only you would listen to him today; do not harden your hearts, as at the Rebellion, who was it who listened and then rebelled? Surely all those whom Moses led out of Egypt. And with whom was he angry for forty years? Surely with those who sinned and whose dead bodies fell in the desert. To whom did he swear they would never enter his place of rest? Surely those who would not believe. So we see that it was their refusal to believe which prevented them from entering.

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 5, 1994

Jesus: Dear child, come unto Me and I will give you rest. I am the Lord of all and author of your life. You give yourself to Me and I write the book of your life. You do not worry. You do not fret. You trust totally in Me and I operate you as I need you.

Kneel before Me and pour yourself out to Me. Let Me possess your soul. You need silence before Me, and total submission. Will to let go totally of your all to Me. Focus on My intense love for you. It is constant and hyper-vigilant and I am with you, filling you up, always. When you operate, you do so with My will. Make yourself like jello, totally formless. You needn't prove anything to anyone for I am acting from your soul. Become selfless and unattached and hold tight in Me at every second.

Make your day a day with Me, your constant companion. Keep Me always in your thoughts and present by your side every second. You are never alone. I am with you at every moment. Focus on Me and My love. It is so intense and so warm! Make Spiritual Communions to Me and be alone for short times in an intimate way all day. Be in love and be with your lover all through the day. We share an intimate time, a few minutes here and there, just stopping to be in spiritual communion together. Our love develops every day as you grow in your union with Me. It deepens and powers your life. As our love deepens, your assuredness to operate is increased. You act always out of love of Me. This is how I want you to be. Your actions are directed by the love you feel inside. Your actions become powered by a mighty force. The love and life that radiates from you is My love and life.

Total communion with Me, all through the day! To see this world through the eyes of Jesus, to operate with the love of Jesus in your heart, you must become totally selfless and operate from My love. Stop and be in spiritual communion. Stop and spend time alone with Me, a power house, self-focusing, turning yourself back to Me and My love, recharging your worn battery in My heart. What an experience! I am here, little one. You need My constant power and love. I am here and you need Me to do as I will. Tap into the source all day, a quiet moment alone with your love, a few moments often to focus on Me and My love.

You are My light to this world. It takes energy and power. It takes My love to shine in the darkness. Come and be plugged in. I am always there and ready to charge you.

I love you so, little one. Stay so close to Me. You need Me constantly. I love you. Jesus.

Personal Note: My God is Jesus. When I get distracted, I have made something else My God. He comes first and last and He is what is important to Me. He alone do I serve. Alleluia. My focus is shifted to His heart. Alleluia.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

I Want To Know Him More

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 5, 1994 8:30 a.m.
After Mass

R. After Communion this morning, I felt pain that I could not become closer to and know Him more. It is such an intense longing to know My Lord. It is painful.

At 6:40 a.m. I had felt very close to Him. I had reached the realm of losing myself in Him. My chest felt His love very close, all the way until I received Communion. Then I felt such sadness not to be able to experience Him deeper.

He is so beautiful and so ready to be in union with us. We must constantly be about deepening this union with Him. He creates a flutter in my heart, but also an ache not to experience Him with the intensity I crave. It is the magnetism of my Lord that powers my life and bids me to spend as much time as possible in prayer with Him.

I feel such sadness in my soul because I want so much more. This craving is an appetite in each of our souls and it increases as we know Him more and more. This is the pain of those in purgatory who know the Lord but cannot behold Him. It is indeed suffering to know Him a little, but not more. I have an ache in my heart for a more intense union with Him. I just want more of Him.

It is a bittersweet feeling of love and pain to know and love Him, but not be able to experience Him fully.

Jesus: Wanting to see and hear Me is to demand the ways of the body to communicate. I want to communicate in your heart. Your soul tends to the way of the Lord in your heart, in your spirit. Come to Me and feel Me in your soul. Feel the bittersweetness in the heart. It is I who deal with you interiorly. I need not words. I need not your eyes to keep looking, for this is to delay your communion with Me. Get lost in Me in your soul. It is a feeling you cannot describe in words. It is a feeling you only know in your soul. There are different feelings you experience in the soul, as you know in your heart.

Not all of your feelings associated with Me are the same. Sometimes intense longing, sometimes intensity to feel My presence, sometimes warmth, sometimes insights into My intense love, sometimes insights into other things: My might, My glory, My closeness, My sufferings--all feelings in the soul. I do not communicate to you in words. Oh, such things, all in your heart, are all but glimpses of your God. Be so tuned in to your heart and so aware in these periods of silence with Me. What is the ache in your heart? Love? Or is it longing? You will never completely experience Me on earth. Sometimes more ache, sometimes more love. Come and sit with Me and let Me enter into your heart. It is there that you know Me. You know and experience Me in the heart.

Such insights are given to you after Communion in front of the tabernacle. Wordy, you say, and such repetition? But who listens? You sit here, day after day, in an empty church, alone with Me, as others give lip service to My cry for their love. I sit a prisoner in the tabernacle out of love for you. I beg you to come and bring yourselves to Me. I cannot force you to come. You will never know Me if you do not spend time in silence with Me. I make Myself known in little glimpses in front of the tabernacle.

To those who are sick or elderly I come at their request, but, for you who are able, I wait, as a prisoner of love, for your time with Me. To know Me is to be with Me. Time alone in silence. I pour out to you such gifts and wisdom that no human mind can ever comprehend. Ask not what you get. Your aching heart tells you of My intense love! To know Me a little, but never enough. I communicate to you in the yearnings in your chest.

Become aware of your feelings with Me. How do you feel when you hug your lover? Is it words? No, it is a feeling in your heart. To love Me is to experience Me in your heart. So simple, you say? Yes, simple, but profound. I am the ardent love who waits for you to come. I beg for you to be with Me. Do you say no to busy yourself with such nonsense when your God waits for you? Oh, little ones, come and concentrate all your efforts on improving your union with Me. Do you say no to your God or do you come to Him Who loves you like no other? My ways I make known to you. You come and I fill you with such gifts as you do not comprehend.

R. I am filled with emotion to know this is truly the one, true God who sits here in this empty church with me. Jesus, Who walked the earth and died a brutal death for love of us, sits and waits for us here.

He gave His all for us. He opened His arms and died this brutal death for love of us and we do not have time for Him. It saddens my heart that no one is here to share His love, that He Who loved us so much that He came to earth and gave His life for us sits in an empty church.

This is not a myth. This is real. He is truly present in this tabernacle, this day. Let me, Lord, and all my brothers, know Your true presence here. Oh, God, I love You so.

I experience His True Presence. I am saddened here by so many things. He speaks in my emotions here. I am so saddened by this empty church and the empty hearts of my brothers. He loved everyone to His death. I am saddened by a desire to know Him more and more and not be able to know. But I am filled by His intense love and His goodness. Shout His love from the housetops and stand on the roofs. Declare the day of the Lord is near! Your hearts need the love He has to give! Come in flocks to His altar and worship Him in His might and thank Him for the gifts He has given to you. He is so good and worthy of such honor and praise. We are His chosen ones.

Jesus: Do not stay away, but flock here. Beat a way to the door. You tarry too much. You miss the whole reason for why you live. You have chosen such incidental things and passed up the golden treasures in the fields.

I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am your all. I am truly present and I wait for you. You tarry too much and you are losing precious time. Beat a path to My door and spend your days and nights with Me for I am your God, worthy of all honor and all praise, sayeth the Lord. Alleluia, Alleluia.

Excerpt from June 4, 2001 Daily Message  

about 4:00 p.m. before the tabernacle

Messenger: The love within my heart swelled for
            Him and I wanted Him, I wanted completeness
            in Him.



            All my struggles flashed before me, the
                 sanctuary became dim, I want to say
                 darkened and a bluish, white-lighted veil
in the form of a heart appeared. 
                 It was gigantic, covering the tabernacle
                 and the whole area, but
it was a vibrant 
                 transparent light (the white was in the
                 middle and the blue was around the
                 edges, so very transparent, I cannot
                 find the words to explain it)

                 and my whole awareness was
                 only there with Him. All I knew
                 seemed connected in this and
                 the depth of love and satisfaction
                 in my heart was to exist in that
                 moment when it seemed the
                 earth stood still and I felt
                 His embrace surround me.

             Oh my God, the delight of Thee.

             The earth stopped and I touched Him
                   and I knew Him so deeply in
                   that embrace.

             Oh my God, how could I not empty myself
                   in that moment, giving myself
                   to Thee.

             Envision the tabernacle,
                 the crucifix above
                 the back altar
                 the front altar clothed with green

                 a church of wood walls

                 six high candles, three on each side of the 
                 tabernacle and on
the front altar, two wide 
                 candles, but short.



             The altar was adorned with the most
                 beautiful flowers. Ones like I've never
                 seen before.

             And the light darkens again,
             I feel His presence in the tabernacle,
             I want to be so united to Him.

Jesus speaks: You make Me happy when you give 
                    yourself to Me, so completely.

                I receive your love.
                I love you so much, my daughter.

Messenger: Oh Jesus I want to be united to You.
            So many things just do not seem so important now
                 when the Divine God touches my soul
                 so deeply.

             I can make a spiritual communion with Him,
                 my Divine God.

             I have traveled many roads, some lead here,
                 some lead there, we are on a journey
                 to Him. (I see so many roads leading to God.)

             The world seems to stand still and I know
                 Him so deeply in my heart.



             I want to remember this church.
             I want to see the vision I saw.
             The bluish, white, see-through light
             I never saw that before.

             It reminds me of fluorescent lights,
                 but that is man made,
                 this was not.

             This was as one I cannot describe.

             And yet He can do this -

                 take an ordinary night and appear
                 in brilliant light for me to see.

             He can wrap me in His embrace of love,
             He can shower me with love and place
                 a wreath around my neck,
             He is God.
             Nothing is impossible for Him.

             I cried out to Him before this vision -
                 "I am totally in your hands and
                   dependent on You."

             I cannot do what needs to be done that is - make
                 every connection, make it work, with
                 all the free wills and people.

             It takes the work of the carpenter to design
                 the cabinet -

             It takes the work of the Divine God to
                 move the hearts with His grace.
             He can fix events so they happen.

             He can give the grace to change hearts.

             I am the baby in the Father's lap.

             I am the baby, the little child of God.

             I know this,
             I want Him,
             I want Him more.

                          I want this deep connection with my God,

             my Savior, my Lover, my All.

                   I want this connection with Him, to
                 feel His touch upon me,
                 to relish these moments of love.

             Oh my God, I truly love You and
                 I lay prostrate in awe before
                 You, You are the bridegroom
                 of my soul.

             You are my Divine God.

             Help me now.

             I want You.

             I want to love You.

             I want to give myself to you deeper and deeper
                 and deeper in love with you.

             This does not mean I seek suffering,
                 I seek His will for me.

Excerpt from December 21, 2000 Daily Message             

Messenger: Please pray for these intentions that the Jesuits and priests and bishops help us circulate the priestly newsletter and translate it, also that they translate the prayers Jesus gave us.

Father Carter said he saw himself as a little child held in Mary's arms.

In his room in Colombiere where he died he had a beautiful picture holy card of Mary and her holding the Child Jesus.

He saw himself in the arms of Mary as a little child.

He was so holy.

On Saturday he will be buried.

Please pray united with us if you are here or not, and pray for all Jesus' intentions for His Shepherds of Christ Movement.

A Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert




A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.


December 17, 2000, Mary speaks:

Help me to circulate my red and blue
    Rosary Books and the
    prayers my Son gives to you.

This is a gift we give you.
All the revelations are gifts given to you.
My Son is the Light of the World.
He is Jesus born in a stable.
Will you help me?
He is the Light of the World. Help me, help me
