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: These are writings given in July, 1994 that Jesus requested be in the 17th book and put on the Internet this month.

July 9, 1994.  Prayed to the Holy Spirit and received:

My lack of peace is coming from lack of forgiveness. I am living to love God and my brother.

To have anger toward my brother blocks the flow of God’s love operating in me. I must forgive all to have peace.

Any lack of love for my brother diminishes peace.

Say you are sorry and forgive.

I must come from a place of love rooted in Him Who first loved us.

Jesus speaks: Trust in Me, My child. I will give you peace, not as the world gives you peace. Your job is to love Me and love one another. How can I spread My love if you are upset with your brother? He who angers you is He whom you need to love. Will you love for Me this day or will you focus on yourself and how you have been wronged? Reach for the Kingdom of God. It is won in holiness, in love. Love always. When they persecuted Me, I loved them.


July 11, 1994, Love Me First Above All Things

There is not division where there is love. If you love Me you will keep My commands. My commands I give to you, love God, love one another. A person fixed in love of God will do the Father’s will. That which leads to perfect peace and happiness is complying to the will of My Father.

My dear ones, there is no other way. You want your wills, your feelings are hurt, you want to do things according to your plan. I tell you, unless you follow My way, you will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

I call you to holiness in all things, to put aside your selfishness and willfulness and put Me first. The greatest Commandment is to love God first with your whole heart and whole soul.

Do you love Me more than you love yourself? Are you putting My will before your own? If you do not follow the greatest Commandment, how do you expect to win the reward promised to those who love and serve the Lord?

I call you to total consecration to Our Hearts. You want it your way.

There is only one road. The road is to love Me first above all things. The road is service according to the will of the Father. Doing "good works" is not necessarily doing Our will. The will of the Father is doing His will even when you do not want to, when you would rather do it your own way.

Open up your hearts. Pray first to the Spirit to open your minds and hearts, beg to serve God, give yourself to God and come. Do as you are commanded. Love of God before ALL things.

Do you love Me before yourself? The first Commandment commands you to put God first. Do you do it your way and tell yourself it is God’s will?

My way is the only way. All other ways lead you to problems. Why don’t you believe that I am Almighty, that I know all things? Why won’t you surrender and do as you are told?

Be as babies at the breast, do as you are told. Beg to know the will of the Father. This is made clear to you in the inner promptings of your heart. Sit with God after Communion and in front of the tabernacle. Your answers are given there. You must learn to listen to God. He has the plan for your life.

My children, My children, My willful children, do you want things done your way, do you ponder and arrive at your conclusions, or are you striving to do My will? The will of the Father is made clear in your hearts in front of the tabernacle, in the silent moments you spend alone with God. Beg the Spirit to give you His gifts, to open your minds and hearts.

Do not be willful, strive to do only His will. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I give you the way to eternal life. Give up your attachments to your own ways and follow ME.

I am the Way, I am Truth and Life (Jn 14:6), He that comes to Me will have the light of life. Come and follow Me.


July 16, 1994,  Be Grateful My Child, for the Blessings I Send You

Messenger: God is giving me everything I need.

Jesus speaks: The very hairs of your head are numbered, I allow all that is happening to you. Do you look for that which you do not have? Look for that which I am giving you. Do you seek love and miss the love that is given? Do you want things given the way you want, or are you accepting the way they are? This is willfulness. You think things should be this way, yet they are that way and you become frustrated. I give you all you need. It is in your acceptance of all things that you grow in your relationship with Me. Do not be willful and expect things the way you think they should be. You are receiving so much love in your life today from others, and you are looking for love the way you want it. I love you and I love you through others. Look at the love I am sending you. Accept all others the way they are. I give to you according to your needs. Do you love Me? I give you so much love in your world and in all those around you. Take the blinders off of your eyes and see the gifts I am pouring out to you this day. Pray to the Holy Spirit for vision. God loves you so. God is caring for your needs this day. In your willfulness you want things your way. Accept the love I pour out to you. Accept all others as they are. Strive to give love as I give to you. I am your God and I love you with an undying love. You are Mine, child, I love you so.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:
