GOD'S FAMILY

Given December 26, 1998 Eve of Holy Family

Jesus speaks: I invite you to the wedding of the spouse of the Lamb and the Lamb, it is the marriage of a soul to Jesus Christ the Son of God.

The marriage is to take place when the soul gives herself most intimately to the Son of God, God-made-man. It cannot happen without the consecration of the tainted child of Eve to the New Eve, the pure and Immaculate Virgin, Mary Immaculate.

See Lucia's vision. The Father and the Holy Spirit are united in perfect oneness and harmony with the Son.

It is the feast of the Holy Family.

I ask you to envision the Holy Family of Nazareth. I ask you to see the New Adam as a little Babe in a manger and the New Eve. I ask you to envision the Father and Holy Spirit above the Baby's bed and Mary, pure and Immaculate standing beside the manger.

THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST IN US.


Jesus speaks: WEEP NOT FOR ME BUT FOR YOURSELVES and your children.


Ecclesiasticus 3:1-6

Children, listen to me for I am your father: do what I tell you, and so be safe; for the Lord honours the father above his children and upholds the rights of a mother over her sons. Whoever respects a father expiates sins, whoever honours a mother is like someone amassing a fortune. Whoever respects a father will in turn be happy with children, the day he prays for help, he will be heard. Long life comes to anyone who honours a father, whoever obeys the Lord makes a mother happy.


Malachi 1:6-9

An indictment of the priests

The son honours his father, the slave stands in awe of his master. But if I am indeed father, where is the honour due to me? And if I am indeed master, where is the awe due to me? says Yahweh Sabaoth to you priests who despise my name. You ask, "How have we despised your name?" By putting polluted food on my altar. You ask, "How have we polluted you?" By saying, "The table of Yahweh deserves no respect." When you bring blind animals for sacrifice, is this not wrong? When you bring the lame and the diseased, is this not wrong? If you offer them to your governor, see if he is pleased with them or receives you graciously, says Yahweh Sabaoth. In that case, try pleading with God to take pity on us (that is what you have done), and will he take any notice? says Yahweh Sabaoth.


Jesus speaks: God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses.


Exodus 20:12

'Honour your father and your mother so that you may live long in the land that Yahweh your God is giving you.


Eccleciasticus 3:2

...and upholds the rights of a mother over her sons.


Jesus speaks: Mary is the Mother of the Church.

I give you this experience on this Eve of the Holy Family. What you do will greatly help to bring to light the realization of man's relationship in the Holy Family.

Look at the crib scene, you see the New Adam and Mary Immaculate, Mother most pure, the New Eve, the Mother of the Church, the Mother of her priest-sons.

Let us read Eccleciasticus 3:2 :

...AND UPHOLDS THE RIGHTS OF A MOTHER OVER HER SONS.

Where is the authority of many priests today? Does the authority of the priest come down from heaven? Do the priests respect this authority of Mary Immaculate, Mother of the Church?

Messenger: How does the life flow to a baby in the womb of a mother? It flows in her body to the baby. Mary Immaculate is the Mediatrix of all grace, "Mother of divine grace" as referred to in the litany.

Mary speaks: I wail aloud beneath the cross of my Son, bringing forth my children.

Jesus speaks: I have allowed you to suffer for My children, My people, who have ignored Me on My special day, My birthday. On My birthday, Christmas day, many of Mary's children do not have a minute to come to Me in prayer.

Mary speaks: I wail beneath the cross of my Son, bringing forth God's children.


December 28, 1998 Feast of the Holy Innocent Martyrs


Revelation 14:4-5

These are the sons who have kept their virginity and not been defiled with women; they follow the Lamb wherever he goes; they, out of all people, have been redeemed to be the first-fruits for God and for the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths and no fault can be found in them.


Jesus speaks: Weep not for Me, but for yourselves and your children.

Messenger: Mary looked into the eyes of her beloved Son on the way to Calvary.

Mary speaks: The Heart of my Son was formed in my womb.

From the litany: "Heart of Jesus, formed by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mother, have mercy on us."

Read John 19:25-27, 33-34.

Jesus speaks: Weep not for Me, but for yourselves and your children.

Mary speaks: My children, today I cry, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, from my site in Florida. I cry, I wail aloud, bringing forth my children in pain.

Read Revelation 12:1-2 and Revelation 19:7-9.

Read Paul to the Ephesians:
Ephesians 5:2-14, 21-33
Ephesians 6:10-17

Jeremiah 31:31-32, 33-34
Romans 12:1-2,
Romans 12:9-13.


Psalm 128:3

Your wife a fruitful vine
in the inner places of your house.
Your children round your table
like shoots of an olive tree.


Messenger: We gather around the Lord's table at the Mass. We are the little olive plants called to bear fruit for the Kingdom from the Father's table. We gather and give thanks, love, adoration to Him and petition Him to bring forth a great harvest.

The devil has attacked the family meal. The devil has blocked the hearts of many priests from becoming one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the pure Hearts. Dwelling in Their Hearts we the children offer a most pure sacrifice. We are the tainted children of Eve.

Jesus speaks: Oh America and My world, My Mother appears to lead the children to My Eucharistic Heart, to lead the children into the deepest union with their God. Within My Heart are found the treasures you desire.

I am the Vine, you are the branches. All who live in Me will bear great fruit.

Come to My altar, you children of the Father, gather round the table of sacrifice, join in great oneness with the Immaculate Virgin.

The table is set. Only those dressed in proper attire will be allowed to enter in. A banquet is prepared. Many said "no", for they were busy. They had to bury their dead. You come, I called you by name. You partake in the Holy Sacrifice.

I am the Victim, I am the Lamb of God, I gave Myself for your sins. Come to the banquet prepared by the vine grower.

And He gave His Son as a sacrifice for the salvation of souls.

On this feast of the Holy Family, I ask you to see yourselves as the children of the Father, the children of the Mother, spouses of the Lamb, living in the Spirit, in holy wedlock to the Lamb of God.

Messenger: Come to me Lord and possess my soul.

Jesus speaks: On this day following Christmas, I cry to you in pain. I sweat Blood in the garden for the thankless race. They are filled with poison. You are slaughtering the minds of My little ones and teaching them junk. You teach them to desire pleasures and fail to teach them the Commandments and the love of God. You come from an evil age. I spit you from My mouth for I do not like the taste of the honey. It is not sweet and kind, it is filled with much sickness. You are sick, My people, you teach your children your sick ways. The world has turned away from God. Very few families prayed any prayers together on My Christmas day. Few told the children of the Christ Child, but you fed your children the garbage of the earth. I scream to you, but you do not hear Me. You are not a holy family living under the Father's care. Children are not taught of their heavenly Father and Mother, they are taught so many vile things.

Read Genesis 1:26-28,31 and Genesis 3:23-24.


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.

DO ORDINARY THINGS WITH LOVE

Written at 12:15 p.m. at Holy Cross-Immaculata Church:

How I long to be covered with His blood all over me - the precious blood of my Beloved, shed for our sins and the sins of mankind. I went to Holy Cross-Immaculata Catholic Church at 12:15, so eager to be there, filled with such emotion. This is my greatest, deepest feeling, to be here with my Love. My sacrifice is to do the ordinary things and drudgery, with love! I don't always love as I should. I must see beyond the person to an ideal self and to love them. I must see Christ in them - see how they reflect Christ. I need to quit focusing on myself. I do not need to explain!

A saint is one doing ordinary things with love - always love. We must keep our focus on Him. The world is dying in their hearts. The world is keeping children focused on excitement from the outside. It has games that appeal to all senses as a brainwashing technique. They keep the child looking for instant excitement from the outside. It is so intense, so exciting there that their bodies cannot even take it!

High, intense excitement - where does the child go to get the next fix, that which will feed this high level of gratification that they are not even looking for? Sex, drugs, etc.-what excitement comes after that? The devil has created these games and is brainwashing the hearts of the children. All that is sought is on the outside - the real source of life is within the heart.

God is the Source of life!

If the world can keep people focused on the outside, all they need can be found outside the body, excitement to satisfy the body beyond all comprehension. Where does a child go when they are given computers that talk to others on the other end of the world, games that isolate children and keep them in an intense state of self-indulgent gratification They reach such a level of intense gratification that they could kill? They have practiced combat - they have been there!

Children are taught intensity in video games. They are taught to respond in violence. There is intense noise, use of guns to kill. They are given intense situations.

The way of God teaches:
Love
Union
Bonds
Interiority
Connection
Sacrifice
Will of God
Selflessness
Surrendering
The way of the world teaches:
Fear
Intensity
Isolation
Responding with violence
Heart hearts - ready to kill
Indulgence
Pleasure
Self-UNO
Willfulness
Aggression-I have power, I am in control.

God teaches us to love according to His will. God wants us to surrender and be led by the Spirit. The world is teaching youth, through the video games, to respond quickly with violence, aggressive behavior; they teach all who play them to respond quickly with anger to kill. Children have practiced these techniques. They have practiced killing quickly. How sick is this?

The games promote: reactive behavior, controlling behavior, pleasure, self-indulgent behavior, isolating behavior, focusing on the exterior, abandoning the interior heart, and violent behavior. The person playing the video games needs high levels of excitement.

Jesus showed us the way - Christ lived for 33 years a calm life, a carpenter's son, a family life. He gave Himself, gave His all and surrendered to the Father's will. He was always calm. He had peace in His Heart. He came in poverty. He left covered with blood.

Women were portrayed in the video game as nasty, with an ugly face and foul language. Mary is our model.

And Mary said:

"My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
in God my Savior;
because he has looked upon
the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
has done great things for me.
Holy is his name." (Lk. 1:46-49)


Mass Book December 27, 1995; Prayer before the Sacrifice of the Mass.


December 27, 1995

A PRAYER BEFORE THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS

Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.


Blue Book I, December 27, 1993, The Bridegroom Awaits


Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Bridegroom Awaits

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 27, 1993 - 4:00a.m.

Jesus speaks: Dear child, the Son of Man waits and you sleep in the night. I wait for you and you sleep. You know I am waiting and you are dead in your bed. Awake, My little one, when I call. You must not give in to the desires of the body. I care for your needs. Your strength comes from Me. Jump from your bed, sound the trumpet and arise, for your Savior comes in the night to bring you a message for all His children. Ready yourself, for I do not like to wait. Get up and come, child. I am God.

I am He Who made the world, He Who makes the sun shine and the baby in the womb! You make Me wait while you sleep. Rise and run, for the Lord is at hand. God awaits you and beckons you to be attentive to your calling. Sound the trumpet! Arise in the night. I am He Who comes to you. You must harken to the call. Come pronto to My request and do not tarry. I wait and I wait and I eagerly want to talk to you.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Oh, child, I want these messages to reach the ends of this earth. I deliver each with such love. Will you deliver My messages to all My loved ones? They eagerly need to hear My words of love. They need to know how I feel about each one of them. They need to know that I am God. I love each child uniquely and My love is the love of God. What can you get on this earth that can compare to the love of God? You have a message declaring My love for each of My children. They are My love letters to them. Please see that they receive this letter. This is your top priority. It is a love letter to My beloved ones.

I am your Savior. I am not a myth. I am alive and I come to you. I wait in the tabernacle every day as a prisoner. Waiting and waiting in the tabernacle and who comes to be with Me? I await you, My children, to come and realize that God is in the tabernacle. I am Jesus, the Son of God, and I wait for you every day. Come to Me in your busy day. Come to Mass. Make ready your hearts and receive Me in Communion. I am there awaiting you as a groom awaiting his bride. I want to be with you, united in Holy Communion. I am truly present there, but which of you come? I wait for each of you. I am God. I can love you each so intently you do not understand. Your brother does not make up your love to Me. I wait, you little ones. Will you come and receive your love this day?

Ready your hearts and keep them holy. God will enter there. Prepare the way for Me. Do not sin. Do not lie to yourselves and tell yourself that some sins are of no account. Every sin is wrong. I tell you what is right and wrong in your hearts. You know the Ten Commandments. Satan tells you "but in this case, you are exempt", "this is out of date, you are allowed here." No, little ones, sin is sin and your heart knows what is wrong! Keep it pure. The more you lie to yourself about evil, the more right it becomes. Oh, how sad to numb your beautiful heart and accept the things of this world that are evil as okay. Evil is evil and you must guard against any evil the world tells you is okay.

I am the way, the truth and the life. When you abide in My ways, you possess the light of life. Do not be pulled into the world and its evil ways. Ready yourself for My love. I am as a bridegroom awaiting his bride. So pure, so white, so untainted she appears, just for her loved one. Her ways are gentle and kind and she is a picture of holiness, dressed in a white gown. Dress your soul in a white gown for Me. Keep your soul clothed in a cloth of dignity, a white cloth untainted by any sin, pure as the bride who meets her groom. Our meeting is with such love.

You enter My church, you walk My aisle. Your bridegroom awaits you in Communion. I am the bridegroom of your hearts. I come with such love to enter your soul. I am He Who walks with you to be united in Communion. I am Jesus. I am your true Love. I wait for you, My child. Please clean yourself up for My arrival! Think of My coming the day before and eagerly await our union. This is the greatest event of your life, union with God. Anticipate it with such eagerness, as the wedding of our hearts. I await you, little ones. I am God. What could this world ever give you that can be likened to God's entering your soul?

I am God and I come to you in Communion. Do you wait for Me, the bridegroom of your soul? Do you wait as one who is going to one's own wedding? This event far surpasses any wedding. It is you who are missing the significance here. I am here every Mass waiting, just for you. Get dressed, purify yourself, see the priest, go to confession, guard your tongue as the opening to your soul. I enter therein and you receive God, my child. Do you not comprehend this a little?

Read My words here. They are as real as the eyes you use to read them. It is you who blind yourself to all I have to give you. You do not reach with the things of the soul. You look for explanations in bodily things. To see the soul and the things of God you must reach with the eyes of God. You must be opened by the faith I eagerly want to give you. Beg to be open to Me so I can give you all you need to know Me. This world is blurring your Godly vision. It is hard to see through the mask of evil it has created. Every day the mask becomes more dense.

I am here, little one. You must die to this world to see Me. You don't need more of the world. You need less of the world. As the world decreases, your knowledge of Me increases. Take the mask off your face. Make your hearts pure. Pray to the Holy Spirit for His gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fear of God-all gifts that only He can give! Fill your hearts with the gifts of the Spirit. He will remove the blinders from your eyes and dwell in your soul. You will know a new life and I will become so much more alive to you. You, child, need the Spirit!

The way to God is through Jesus. You need the Spirit. You need the Father. You need all three. Pray to be made whole in the Holy Trinity. Pray for union with God. Pray for the things of the soul. When your soul is in order, all else falls into order. You needn't pray for things of the world. Pray to know Me more fully. Pray for unity with God. Pray for opening in your hearts. Pray for holiness. Pray for faith, hope, charity. Pray for knowledge of how to please God. These are the true treasures. All else is of no account. Don't recite prayers for worldly things. Pray for your union with God. This is what it is all about!

I am so eager to make Myself known to you. Our love affair awaits and it depends on you. I am here loving you. It is you who keep us apart. What could you find on this earth that could compare with a love affair with God, child? Your soul was created to know love and serve Me. It craves this union with Me. This appetite is stronger than any other you possess. You hold it back and make light of it because this world has taken God out. This world is messed up. I am God and you are a creature of God. You cannot take God from you or you remain only a creature. What dignity you sacrifice to remove God from yourself!

Prepare for the wedding of our souls. Your bridegroom awaits you. I am Jesus, Son of the one, true, God. I await your union with Me. Child, nothing you ever do on this earth can compare with Communion with God. If you do not behold this as something, you need to pray to know Me more. Go to the Spirit and beg Him for understanding and wisdom. Beg Him for all his gifts to enhance your knowledge of God. Beg the Spirit for His baptism. Let Him shower you with His life and you will become alive and on fire in your heart.

Your bridegroom awaits you. Prepare yourself for the wedding. Come, pure and white, and anticipate this union with eagerness. I love you so, My child. You will never find a speck on this earth that can compare with the love of God. Search, you feeble creature, for worldly satisfaction and you will never satisfy one little part of your soul. Your soul can only be satisfied by the love of God. It stalks your restless heart and is only satisfied in God. It craves God like an appetite except that it is much stronger. What is in your heart that is never satisfied by your worldly way? It is the soul that craves union with God. It constantly keeps you in a state of unrest, of searching, of seeking, of looking for more. The more is found in the Eucharist. It is the answer to the empty heart. It is the love you seek, but cannot find anywhere else. It is Jesus, child. It is your Bridegroom. Come and be in Communion with Him. He awaits you and bids you to come, pure in your heart, to the wedding-the wedding of your soul.

Messenger: I felt as if there was so much I just did not understand and I was overwhelmed by the mystery of God. I opened the Blue Book to this:

Nov. 21, 1993:

Jesus speaks: Oh, what glories I have in store for you when you finally see it all, see all there is to Me! Little glimpses I will give you. These are special treats of My love, but you, in your earthly form, cannot even handle it. My power, My light, My fire would blow you off your feet and you would be out cold.

That is how I am at your side, with a power pack like this, and you worry about a power failure? Oh, how silly, when I am with you. Trust, trust. I am here.


DECEMBER 27, 1998

A MESSAGE FROM JESUS FOR YOUTH ON RELATIONSHIPS

Jesus speaks: My youth, I write to you about whom you date and about choosing your friends of the opposite sex and your mate. It may be exciting engaging in physical contact and love with another, but this soon will wear thin and what will remain are the values in the heart of the individual. You should help one another grow to be better lovers of God and others.

That person you choose for your wife or husband will contribute along with you to the forming of your children. The baby comes from you and your mate. When your child grows, your mate will teach him what is in the heart and you will not be able to change the child or control him. He will be influenced as the other parent teaches his ways to the child. If his god is sex, food, money, sports, etc., he will teach your children that these things should also be their god. If he watches endless hours of football, if he is into macho things, he will teach your children by his example. If he believes it is all right to watch sinful movies, he will teach your children to be like him. Money is not the important factor in a relationship, it is what is in the heart. The hearts will build a family built on love. Do not, My youth, date anyone you would not marry. You are engaging in friendships to grow to be better persons. If a friend is dragging you down as you try to be a better person, then you must find a friend that is helping you to grow to be a better person. Friendship is a gift from God. It will help all to be better in this world when it is rooted in goodness. Look into their hearts and see the reflection of God's goodness.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How has loving you helped me to grow to be a better person in the world?
