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.

Excerpt from front of Blue Book I.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

It is in acceptance of all that is before you that you grow in your relationship with me.  Do not try to throw back the opportunity for grace you receive.

Child, I am ever by your side and I am ever teaching you.  Accept all things as happening from Him Who loves you.  Know that My hand is in everything you are experiencing.  I am vigilant and by your side.  Nothing happens to you that I have not consented to.

- Jesus' words to the receiver
December 30, 1993

(End of excerpt from front of Blue Book I.)



Words of Surrender of a Soul

Words of Consecration to God

Today Lord, (today's date), I give You my entire will-

I give You all my liberties, I want to love and serve You as You desire.

I surrender myself to You.

I ask You to run my life.

I ask You to help me act like You, Jesus, and like Your Mother Mary.

God, this day I consecrate myself to You.

I am  (name) , Your beloved child, guide me on my way now as I go about my day (or if in Church) as I leave Your Eucharistic presence.


The following Imprimatur is for the Prayer for Union with Jesus and not the message above or below.

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994


Jesus speaks: My children,

Do not go it alone. Give yourself to Me.

Live your life of Consecration.

Unite to the Mass in everything you do.

My apostles, you need to go to daily Mass and spend an hour before the tabernacle if you are an Apostle of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

I ask all to spread these cards to everyone.



Jesus speaks: Also, spread this card.



Jesus speaks: These two cards when used by the faithful in nursing homes, and all places can help to bring down great grace for the priests, the Church and the world.

Pray the prayers in My booklets for healing and oneness.


  


Jesus speaks: Please put here the 13th promise from the message given to the founder from Jesus.


The 13th Promise

Jesus speaks: "I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."


Jesus speaks: If you want deeper union with Me, I promise to give you the greatest graces when you pray the prayers I have given in My prayer manual.

The more you pray for the priests, the Church and the world and consecrate your hearts to Me and to My Mother, the more you will go into a deeper love union with Me in My Heart. Live every moment as My bride.

This is what St. Paul says:  and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me...(Gal. 2:20)

Offer your lives as a sacrifice united to the Mass with consecrated hearts.

A sacrifice is an offering. Laying down your life and living according to My Father's will is most pleasing to your God.

Offer up all you do as a sacrifice for souls.



Jesus speaks: The more you go to the Eucharist, the more My desires will be your desires. You are saturated by My grace when you go to Mass and receive Me and sit before the tabernacle.

The more you do this, the more you will be one in Me.

I want you to spread My little cards to nursing homes.

If you are having trouble spending your time daily before the tabernacle, read this message placed at the end of the message today. Blue Book I, August 28, 1993, "Come to My Tabernacle".

I give you a quote from another message I gave to you in Blue Book I, November 24, 1993, "His Kingdom Awaits".


Excerpt from Blue Book I.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusHis Kingdom Awaits (excerpt)

God's Blue Book I CoverNovember 24, 1993

Messenger: Oh, Lord, Lord, I want to serve You. I want to do your work.

Jesus speaks: Then do My work. You don't do it in the end. I do it for you. I want this work accomplished, and soon. I will go before you. I will prepare the way. I will open the doors. I use you to do this for Me. Are you willing to serve Me in love and to know the treasure you hold. Read My messages so you will better serve Me. I call, you come. I do the work. You labor and toil, but I have a plan and a way to do it. I only need servants to work My plan. Will you serve Me with love and treasure My works? Do you know how much love you can give to Me and your brothers through this work? I will make your loads light. He that serves the Lord will inherit His kingdom. This reward cannot be bought. It is gained by the love in your hearts.

(End of excerpt from Blue Book I.)


Jesus speaks: We have given you the rosary and the consecration as a great help to lead you deeper into the spiritual life.

These two together will help bring peace to the world.

Excerpt from September 17, 1999, Daily Message.

September 17, 1994 - Holy Spirit Center - 7:00 a.m. - First Message

Messenger: Jesus, I hear your gentle voice say, "I will never abandon you" and I see your lifeless Body held by Your Mother.

Looking at the Pieta:

This, Jesus, is true love. You gave Your very own life for me. I see Your dead Body. This is a reality. You died for love of Me. I see Your Body strung out in Your Mother's arms. I see her weeping face holding her beloved Son. I see You, Jesus. You gave Your all, even to death. You, Oh Jesus, gave Yourself to Your very own death for love of me!

Jesus speaks: I give you life in Me child. It is through this life you are raised to new life. I am the Way. I am the Truth. I am the Life. This period of dryness is ended by this period of realization. I am God. I am Jesus. I gave My life for love of you, My dear, dear child. Come and be with Me, alone with Me My beloved one. Be alone with Me in your heart. When you wonder and worry, I am forever with you alive in your heart, loving you with such love that you do not fully know.

I never abandon you, My beloved one. I never go from your side. I am forever loving you with the most intense love at this moment.

Oh, My child, let go of it all and let Me caress you. I will hold you forever in a pocket in My most tender Heart. I am He Who loved you to My death. Hearken to Me and love Me. I never ever leave you. I love you consistently with the same intense love as the day I died for you. This, child, is My love for you.

Song: We Have Been Told


September 17, 1994 - Second Message

Jesus speaks: This, child, is the 17th. No meeting today? I want you to have a meeting whenever possible on the 17th. It may be changed for a good reason, but I would like the 17th.

This is a special day for the Blue Book. I pour out My special gifts to all who work on these messages. I want My beloved ones to read My intense letters of love.

Anyone who helps My letters to get out will be blessed abundantly by Me. I love each child so dearly.

Tell all to pray every day in union with the Mass. Pray for all your bothers living and dead. It is your prayers that will make the difference. Pray for all who read My messages that they will grow in their knowledge and love of God. Pray for them, pray for your brothers.

Strive to be more like Christ in all your actions. Meditate on My rosary as We have shown you. Lead others to pray the rosary with such fervor and love.

Your hearts will grow in peace and joy as you grow in your union with God. This is the purpose of your life, to be forever drawn closer to My most Sacred Heart through the tender Heart of My Mother.

I love you each so much, My beloved ones. I am with you in a special way this day. I love you with the most tender Heart. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so closely joined in love with My beloved Mother. It is through her Heart and the leading of the Holy Spirit that you will be led so closely to My heart and to the Father.

This is the mystery of life. Union with Father, Son and Holy Spirit through Mary's tender Heart. The more you grow in this union, the more your peace and joy increase.

Pray to God to release all the gifts you need to have greater knowledge and love of Him.

Pray to the Holy Spirit to lead you through Mary's Heart.

Pray, pray, pray. I love you so. I am Your loving Jesus.

Song: I Have Loved You

Excerpt from Blue Book I.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusCome To My Tabernacle

God's Blue Book I CoverAugust 28, 1993

My precious child, I long to be with you. I am here. You must find a way to be with Me every day in front of the tabernacle. If others distract you, you must find a way.

Satan is trying to stop My time with you. I am your true love and I long to spend time with you each day. Hold tight to My face. I am here little one. Don't ever doubt that again. My words are simple. They are truth. No one knows My intense love for them. I long for these moments with you. I am indeed here. If you have to come and be with Me during the day, I want these moments with you in front of the tabernacle. I am truly sitting here with you, Body and Soul.

I am Jesus, Son of the living God. Never doubt Me again. I have made myself known to you, My child. You offend Me so with your doubt and your busyness on other matters. You spend time fuming and fretting and feeling sorry for yourself when I am waiting here to be with you and talk to you. I don't care about other matters. I am very jealous. I want this time every day. You feel so bad inside when you are not alone with Me in church. That is where your comfort comes from. You are so upset inside when you do not spend it here. Don't you know these things? Being home is not the same. I am truly present in the tabernacle. You needn't run anywhere. You have a key to the church. I love you. I don't want to remind you that this is where it all is. I want you to love Me so much you don't even think you can function without time alone with Me in church. Come to Me every day. You do not go a day without food. You can't go a day without time absolutely alone with Me. If you do, it will be a disaster. Have you not felt the gnawing in your heart when you didn't do it yesterday? You crave this time alone and your tears are from not being alone with Him Whom you truly love.

I am Jesus Christ, Son of the one true God. I have chosen you to write these messages which are meant for all and you are busy-doing what, My child? Did you not cry and feel bad most of yesterday? This is your proof. You knew you wanted to be with Me here so badly you almost drove back out. You have to be alone with Me. In front of the tabernacle is best. I am the living God and I am in the tabernacle. You must be here or you will be so lost inside. Spend time with Me, My child. Nothing else matters. I am the one, true God and you shall not have other gods before Me. I command this because this is how you were created and this makes you most happy. Come to Me all you who labor and I will give you rest. I will give you peace, not as this world gives you peace, but My peace, which only I can give.

The gift I give to you, My child, is My Son. Would you refuse My gift? He waits for you every day and where do you go-to the grocery?- to do your wash? What do you do, child?

I am waiting for you. Would you keep Me waiting and turn your back? Is one hour too much for the Son of God? I give you 24 hours. One hour is so little to ask. This is where your peace lies. All else is fruitless.

Not one day should be spent without one hour of private prayer with Me, preferably in the church in front of the tabernacle. Come to Me My little babies. I want to comfort you. I want to care for you. You are all mixed up with your priorities. I grow tired that you don't listen and tell others of My great and glorious love for all My children. This is your main goal. Pray with Me and spread My intense love for all My children. Yes, and I will give you all you need, child. Quit thinking you have to do other things. You have to be with Me and I will make it all work out. I want all to know of My intense love for My children. I died that you might live, not in this world, but in the world to come. I am the way, the truth and the light. All else is useless if it is not rooted in Me and for My work. Time is very short, little one. Listen to My words. You have wasted enough time. Don't delay. All must know of My love for them. It is in Me that they are made whole. Nothing else matters, My child.

This is the message for the children's Juniors Sunday night.


Excerpt from Blue Book III.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusGo to Jesus-He Loves You

God's Blue Book III CoverMay 15, 1994
For Children

Messenger: He sits in the tabernacle and He hears all that goes on about Him. He longs for you to come and spend time in adoration and love. He is God, truly God, and He awaits you with such love.

Churches are full. How is your heart to behold the Son of God? Are you anxious to be here? This is God, child. Are you ready to be in His house?

He sits here in the tabernacle with such love to give. Do you genuflect when you walk in front of the tabernacle. Do you realize that the same Jesus Who died and gave His life for you is there? Oh, how He waits for you to come. He waits with such eagerness for you to come and tell Him you love Him.

He wants you to know He is in Communion. He loves you so. He comes to you inside of your body. He loves you so. He gave the priest the power, through the Holy Spirit, to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood so He could be present to you, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Eucharist. Nothing you ever do here on earth can compare to receiving God inside of your heart. He is a real Person. He is with you this day, the same Jesus Who died on the cross.

He loves you so much! He would die this very day just for you alone. Think of a friend that would die for you. It is hard to share part of our delicious cake with a friend. He gave His life for you because He loved you so much.

He asks only two things of us: to love God and love one another. He wants us to love each other so much that we would give our all for each other. When someone is hurting and being mean, he needs our love more. He doesn't need us to be mean to him.

God is asking you to love your friends today. When they are mean, don't argue with them. See the creation of God the Father in them and pray for them. Your prayers and sacrifices can stop wars. Pray the rosary. It is so powerful!

Remember always: God truly loves you! When you feel unloved, go to Jesus. He is always waiting for you with love. Mary is your mother. She mothers you the same as she mothered Jesus. Pray to her.

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.
