Messenger:            I am learning about control.

Jesus speaks:         You can never control
                            another human person.

                                You can try through
                            different measures, but a person
                            has a free will. A free will
                            is a gift from God.

                                There are some people that
                            violate the rights of others.
                            They are called criminals.
                            They commit crimes.

                            In the human condition many
                                sufferings are caused because
                                of others.

                            The devil can manipulate through

                            A person that's the victim of a crime
                                may fear tremendously.

                            Some of the people say to Me 
                                that I could have prevented
                                the broken window.

                            I am the Almighty God.
                            I can do all things.
                            I allow things to happen.

                            You must look at the situation
                                of 9-11. While people were
                                flying in the air engulfed
                                in fear in the planes that
                                were involved in the 9-11
                                mishap, others were in the
                                airports, some at the
                                magazine stands.

                            The devil is a snarly serpent looking
                                for someone to devour and
                                many give into him.

                            It took one person to try to remove
                                prayer from the schools.

                            Many people do not like what is
                                happening especially when it
                                starts, for example the "gay
                                marriages" and the killing
                                of innocent babies, but
                                strong willed people push and
                                push ahead to get their way.

                            Their tongues are sharp when
                                they want to prove a point —
                                the outcome many suffer.

                            I watch some of you lay down
                                like a soldier on the front
                                line and allow the devil
                                to run your life.

                            You are the children of Eve.
                                You are imperfect.

                            Let us look at the story of Eve
                                in the garden.


Genesis Chapter 3

   Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, ‘Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?’ The woman answered the snake, ‘We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ’ Then the snake said to the woman, ‘No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.’ The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig–leaves together to make themselves loin–cloths.

   The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. ‘Where are you?’ he asked. ‘I heard the sound of you in the garden,’ he replied. ‘I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.’ ‘Who told you that you were naked?’ he asked. ‘Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?’ The man replied, ‘It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.’ Then Yahweh God said to the woman, ‘Why did you do that?’ The woman replied, ‘The snake tempted me and I ate.’

   Then Yahweh God said to the snake, ‘Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you of
    all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.’

     To the woman he said:

     I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
     you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
     Your yearning will be for your husband,
      and he will dominate you.

   To the man he said, ‘Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

     Accursed be the soil because of you!
     Painfully will you get your food from it
     as long as you live.
   It will yield you brambles and thistles,
     as you eat the produce of the land.
   By the sweat of your face
     will you earn your food,
     until you return to the ground,
     as you were taken from it.
     For dust you are
     and to dust you shall return.’

   The man named his wife ‘Eve’ because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, ‘Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!’ So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.


Genesis 4: 2-10

She gave birth to a second child, Abel, the brother of Cain. Now Abel became a shepherd and kept flocks, while Cain tilled the soil. Time passed and Cain brought some of the produce of the soil as an offering for Yahweh, while Abel for his part brought the first–born of his flock and some of their fat as well. Yahweh looked with favour on Abel and his offering. But he did not look with favour on Cain and his offering, and Cain was very angry and downcast. Yahweh asked Cain, ‘Why are you angry and downcast? If you are doing right, surely you ought to hold your head high! But if you are not doing right, Sin is crouching at the door hungry to get you. You can still master him.’ Cain said to his brother Abel, ‘Let us go out’; and while they were in the open country, Cain set on his brother Abel and killed him. 

    Yahweh asked Cain, ‘Where is your brother Abel?’ ‘I do not know,’ he replied. ‘Am I my brother’s guardian?’ ‘What have you done?’ Yahweh asked. ‘Listen! Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground.

                                you the story in the Bible at
                                the beginning.

Genesis 9: 12-16

    And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come:  I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things. When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth, that is, all living things.’

Jesus speaks:     I sent your Mother Mary as a
                                messenger. She appeared every
                                day for 7 years. You threw
                                acid on her face and her
                                head was destroyed.

                            She appeared, the Lady of the
                                rainbow, a reminder of My
                                covenant with you.

                            She came on that day — December 17th

                            Remember the story of Noah.


Genesis 7: 11-24

    In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, and on the seventeenth day of the month, that very day all the springs of the great deep burst through, and the sluices of heaven opened. And heavy rain fell on earth for forty days and forty nights.

    That very day Noah and his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth boarded the ark, with Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons, and with them every species of wild animal, every species of cattle, every species of creeping things that creep along the ground, every species of bird, everything that flies, everything with wings. One pair of all that was alive and had the breath of life boarded the ark with Noah, and those that went aboard were a male and female of all that was alive, as God had commanded him. 
    Then Yahweh shut him in.

The flood lasted forty days on earth. The waters swelled, lifting the ark until it floated off the ground. The waters rose, swelling higher above the ground, and the ark drifted away over the waters. The waters rose higher and higher above the ground until all the highest mountains under the whole of heaven were submerged. The waters reached their peak fifteen cubits above the submerged mountains. And all living things that stirred on earth perished; birds, cattle, wild animals, all the creatures swarming over the earth, and all human beings. Everything with the least breath of life in its nostrils, everything on dry land, died. Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out, people, animals, creeping things and birds; they were wiped off the earth and only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. The waters maintained their level on earth for a hundred and fifty days.

Chapter 8: 1-14

But God had Noah in mind, and all the wild animals and all the cattle that were with him in the ark. God sent a wind across the earth and the waters began to subside. The springs of the deep and the sluices of heaven were stopped up and the heavy rain from heaven was held back. Little by little, the waters ebbed from the earth. After a hundred and fifty days the waters fell, and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The waters gradually fell until the tenth month when, on the first day of the tenth month, the mountain tops appeared. 

    At the end of forty days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark and released a raven, which flew back and forth as it waited for the waters to dry up on earth. He then released a dove, to see whether the waters were receding from the surface of the earth. But the dove, finding nowhere to perch, returned to him in the ark, for there was water over the whole surface of the earth; putting out his hand he took hold of it and brought it back into the ark with him. After waiting seven more days, he again released the dove from the ark. In the evening, the dove came back to him and there in its beak was a freshly–picked olive leaf! So Noah realised that the waters were receding from the earth. After waiting seven more days, he released the dove, and now it returned to him no more. 

    It was in the six hundred and first year of Noah’s life, in the first month and on the first of the month, that the waters began drying out on earth. Noah lifted back the hatch of the ark and looked out. The surface of the ground was dry! 

    In the second month, on the twenty–seventh day of the month, the earth was dry.

Jesus speaks:     The waters
                                washed the earth clean

                            Oh the sin —

                            Water is a sign of cleansing.

God the Father speaks:

                            The Lady of Clearwater
                                appearing in rainbow-color
                                is a sign of the covenant
                                made with the earth.

                            The Falmouth flood in the
                                city where Mary appeared
                                was a sign to those blocking
                                My mission.

                            The Lady appeared at Fatima
                                and was ignored.

                            She gives you the following
                                message that you must
                                pray the rosary.

                            I look into the plane in the
                                blue skies filled with people.
                                How many on the plane are
                                praying the rosary? How
                                many are reading pornography
                                and watching filthy movies
                                on hand-held machines?

                            The violence is at an all time

                            Fewer and fewer churches have
                                priests. More and more are
                                closing. Until the word is
                                spoken from the pulpit, speaking
                                about the intimate love of
                                God, your people will look
                                to satisfy the craving in
                                their heart for My Divine
                                Love with senseless pleasures.

                            Oh My people satan has run
                                rampant, the dress is so
                                alluring, like candy in a
                                candy store, the magazine
                                racks in grocery stores are
                                filled with pornography.

                            You do not see the decay
                                that is happening from within,
                                or do you see the good leaders
                                of your country battling to
                                stay a top such decadence.

                            There are many good souls,
                                some that have been led astray
                                and do not know how to find
                                their way to peace.

                            I will tell you a story
                                there was a pot of cherries
                                half of the cherries were eaten,
                                "bit on" by contaminated birds,
                                the other half were fresh, plump,
                                juicy, healthy cherries.

                            A lady with a big black pot
                                sorted through the cherries
                                being careful to put only the
                                good cherries in her brew.
                                She was called from the room
                                by an unwanted visitor.
                                She had mixed and seasoned
                                them well.

                            While she was gone an abductor
                                came through the back door and
                                put the contaminated cherries in
                                with the healthy ones.

                            When the woman returns how will
                                the pies be that she feeds the

                            Your world is like this —
                                the people are mixed together,
                                the pot is contaminated.

                            How will it fare in the end?

                            Let's look at the story of Noah.


Genesis 7: 11

Matthew 21: 33-46

‘Listen to another parable. There was a man, a landowner, who planted a vineyard; he fenced it round, dug a winepress in it and built a tower; then he leased it to tenants and went abroad. When vintage time drew near he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his produce. But the tenants seized his servants, thrashed one, killed another and stoned a third. Next he sent some more servants, this time a larger number, and they dealt with them in the same way. Finally he sent his son to them thinking, "They will respect my son." But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, "This is the heir. Come on, let us kill him and take over his inheritance." So they seized him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?’ They answered, ‘He will bring those wretches to a wretched end and lease the vineyard to other tenants who will deliver the produce to him at the proper time.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Have you never read in the scriptures: 

    The stone which the builders rejected 
    has become the cornerstone; 
    this is the Lord’s doing 
    and we marvel at it? 

‘I tell you, then, that the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given a people who will produce its fruit.’ 

    When they heard his parables, the chief priests and the scribes realised he was speaking about them, but though they would have liked to arrest him they were afraid of the crowds, who looked on him as a prophet.
