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: Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven.


Acts 4:11

This is the stone which you, the builders, rejected but which has become the cornerstone. Only in him is there salvation;


Messenger: Heart of Jesus, our gate of heaven, we love You.

Have we rejected the Heart of Jesus, our fountain of life?

Jesus speaks: Do you do it for Me or to justify yourselves?

Messenger: Jesus rose and they wanted to stop Him still.


Acts 4:13-17

They were astonished at the fearlessness shown by Peter and John, considering that they were uneducated laymen; and they recognised them as associates of Jesus; but when they saw the man who had been cured standing by their side, they could find no answer. So they ordered them to stand outside while the Sanhedrin had a private discussion. 'What are we going to do with these men?' they asked. 'It is obvious to everybody in Jerusalem that a notable miracle has been worked through them, and we cannot deny it. But to stop the whole thing spreading any further among the people, let us threaten them against ever speaking to anyone in this name again.'


Jesus speaks: I am the Almighty God, I have all the power.

How foolish to think you can stop God.

No matter what you do to My messengers, you won't stop Me.

I ask you to look at your Mother on the building, have you ever seen such a glorious wonder given to men?


Our Lady of Clearwater Building


Jesus speaks: This is the sign I give you, but you look for more, little signs, polaroid pictures and you miss Mary on the building as a sign.

I called special meetings on the 17ths of every month beginning February 17, 1994.

I have requested the messages given at these meetings be studied and put on the Internet. They continued into 1996 to the time I called the meetings on the 13th of the month to help bring about the completion of the Fatima mission.

The meetings were called on the 17th of the month for 2 years before October 13, 1996, My Mother then appeared December 17, 1996, on the building in Clearwater, Florida.

My Mother appeared daily July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995. My Mother appeared on most 5ths July 5, 1994 - October 5, 1996, almost 2 years. On December 5, 1996, I appeared on the cross at the point of death.

The 17ths, the 13ths, and the 5ths are important dates. Before her appearance on the 17th of December, 1996, this appearance was preceded by 2 years of meetings and later rosaries in which messages were given.

All of these message meetings and special rosaries are recorded and secured in safe keeping for study.

All rosaries given on the 5ths of the months in which special messages were given have been recorded and secured.

The six major 13ths, October 13, 1996 - March 13, 1997, have been recorded and many of the live tapes circulated for study and meditation.

I wish you to continue publishing monthly the meetings of the 17ths which began February 17, 1994, and continued into August of 1996.

Special graces are granted on these special dates that I have chosen to give special blessings.

My Mother appeared at Fatima in 1917.


Acts 4:5-12

It happened that the next day the rulers, elders and scribes held a meeting in Jerusalem with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, Jonathan, Alexander and all the members of the high-priestly families. They made the prisoners stand in the middle and began to interrogate them, 'By what power, and by whose name have you men done this?' Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, addressed them, 'Rulers of the people, and elders! If you are questioning us today about an act of kindness to a cripple and asking us how he was healed, you must know, all of you, and the whole people of Israel, that it is by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, and God raised from the dead, by this name and by no other that this man stands before you cured. This is the stone which you, the builders, rejected but which has become the cornerstone. Only in him is there salvation; for of all the names in the world given to men, this is the only one by which we can be saved.'


Jesus speaks: In verse 11 it states: "This is the stone which you, the builders, rejected but which has become the cornerstone. Only in him is there salvation;"

Messenger: We are the builders, the ones to help build up the Church.


Acts 4:15-17

So they ordered them to stand outside while the Sanhedrin had a private discussion. 'What are we going to do with these men?' they asked. 'It is obvious to everybody in Jerusalem that a notable miracle has been worked through them, and we cannot deny it. But to stop the whole thing spreading any further among the people, let us threaten them against ever speaking to anyone in this name again.'


Messenger: They wanted to stop Jesus.


Acts 4: 19-21

But Peter and John retorted, 'You must judge whether in God's eyes it is right to listen to you and not to God. We cannot stop proclaiming what we have seen and heard.' The court repeated the threats and then released them; they could not think of any way to punish them, since all the people were giving glory to God for what had happened. The man who had been miraculously cured was over forty years old.


Jesus speaks: I have come and have given you great signs, but you in your blindness want to control My mission begun by Our Lady of Fatima in this century of Marian apparitions.

I am the stone rejected by the builders.

I am Jesus, I am the Sacred Heart, I am the Bridegroom of your soul.

And I will take them into the depth of My Heart as I promised to My beloved priest son, Fr. Carter.


Jesus' 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."



1 Corinthians 15:54-55

Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?


Revelation 22:12-14, 20

Look, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, to repay everyone as their deeds deserve. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who will have washed their robes clean, so that they will have the right to feed on the tree of life and can come through the gates into the city.

The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon.

Amen; come, Lord Jesus.


Messenger: From the litany "Heart of Jesus, sacred temple of God."

Cling to Me

God's Blue Book I Cover

May 13, 1993 

Jesus speaks: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My Heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

How Will You Write the Life of Your Soul (excerpt)

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 5, 1993 - 6:00 a.m.

Jesus speaks: Come, come, beloved of My Father. What can I do to get you to turn your wills toward Me? You have a free will. You choose your destiny. Will it be Me or your own destruction? When you sin you are hardened in heart. It feels very bad but you justify your actions. Your hearts have turned into stone and your eyes are covered with rags and you see nothing before you.

Oh, little ones, no one can reach you. My heart laments your thirsty little souls and I cry to you as One Who suffered a brutal death for love of you. And your ears! You have plugged them up and you wander in darkness on a useless path toward your own destruction.

I Communicate In Your Heart (excerpt)

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 17, 1993

Jesus speaks: You come and I wait for you to be here. I am the divine healer. I know Mine and My love for you bids you to come and be with Me. But many stay away even when they know how much I long to be with them and want to give them My gifts.

My love for you, each of you, bids Me to call each of you. But do you come? Where do you go, little scared ones? You look in vain in this valley of tears for a place of refuge. You drink, eat, seek, wander-all those things which lead you to the world-while I, Who alone can quiet your stalking heart, sit without your love. I am longing for your love. I am waiting for you to come and be with Me, but you are busy, busy off doing all those little things the world calls you to do.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My heart is a raging fire for love of you. My arms are waiting for you, open wide.


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



Excerpt from Rosary Songs section in the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, p. 181

On January 26, 1994, Jesus said, "When you live in Me, your life is a song and you play for the world the song of Jesus." (God's Blue Book, Volume 2).

More than nine months later, He gave me A Song from Jesus.

On October 7, 1994, Jesus told me to write a song to be sung after Communion for a Mass at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center on October 8, 1994. I told Him I couldn't write music. He said, "You will not do it, I will." My daughter and I sat at the piano bench and in five minutes Jesus gave me the words and music to A Song from Jesus. This is His love song to you.



Genesis 7:11-12

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.


Messenger: On February 17, 1994, Jesus called the first Blue Book meeting. They continued for 2 years while He gave His messages, His love and His plan; while He revealed secrets of His Heart.

On December 17, 1991, I saw the vision on the front of Blue Book II illustrated by Harold Kellner.

On December 17, 1996, 5 years later, Mary appeared on the building in Clearwater, Florida.

In the second month, the 17th day, God opened the flood gates of heaven and flooded the earth.


Genesis 7:17-23

The flood

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 the living things that had 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.


Messenger: On February 17, 1994, I got the following message;

Seek True Treasures

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 17, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus speaks: My little ones, how are you doing? Are you getting bogged down in this weather? Do you know yet that you do not control the elements? You live every day and you think you have much to do to control your actions but you do not see the eyes of Him Who watches over you with loving care.

I give to you this earth and all you need to sustain your life here. Man worries about the earth and if this or that will happen. Man has become so independent that he thinks he controls all things and he needs to worry about his present and future.

You, My favored, chosen ones, know that life here lasts but a moment and like smoke it is gone without a trace. Look at your ancestors. So few people ever remember their ancestors, yet your ancestors thought that at every moment their actions were so crucial. Little ones, you hold on to life. You hold on to these little happenings here and you worry in vain! Look at the big picture, My little ones. Here today, gone tomorrow, and where are you going?


Messenger: This was the day of the first God's Blue Book Meeting.


Vision of Lucia, main visionary of Fatima, 1929


Messenger: Now He comes to flood the earth with His grace found in the Eucharist. He will flood the earth when men dwell in the Hearts of the New Adam and the New Eve.

We must consecrate our hearts to the pure and holy Hearts of the New Adam and the New Eve as Mary said at Fatima.
