Jesus speaks: You can be stopped dead in your path.
Messenger: I just love the Eucharist. I know He is the Bread of Life and when I go to Him in the Mass and receive Him, I am saturated with His life. I feel a light within me and I feel this great existence of Him alive in Me. When I have been to the Eucharist and when I have spent hours with my Beloved before the tabernacle, I am saturated with His life. I am filled more and more with a greater degree of knowing and loving in Him with this increase in grace. All I long for is a greater life in Him all the time. I feel the presence of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit alive in me. This presence is intensified when I go to the Mass and receive Him in the Eucharist and when I sit before Him in the tabernacle. This is what I crave, what I desire, from greater experiences and ecstasies in Him in the Mass. This is my burning desire, to be so existent in Him, to live in Him, to be immensely saturated with His life. I just love God so much, all I want so deeply is Him. He satisfies my soul. In this intense union with Him, His desires become my desires, His wants, my wants, His loves, my 1oves. I know from great ecstasies in Him how dearly He loves the priests and wants this intense love affair with them. He is so offended when they do not spend a part of their day to silently be with Him. He wishes them to come before the tabernacle and He will outpour the greatest gifts to them. He has given us such a gift to share so abundantly in His life in Baptism and the other Sacraments. I want to thank Him and make reparation for my sins and the sins of all who offend Him, and do not come to Him, nor spend time with Him.
O Divine God, pardon our sins, increase our awareness of the great gift you give to us in sharing Your life with us.
Birds fly, fish swim, humans act in human ways, but through Baptism God raises our capacity to love and be more like Him through the gift of grace. We exist in Him and share immensely in the capacity to love and know more like Him. Thank you God for elevating our human nature and allowing us to share in your divine life through Baptism.
One day I was trying to go to Mass with one of my children.
We drove along the road at a normal speed and went up a hill. To my amazement on the other side of the hill another man was turning into a golf course right before me. In one second I had this thought, I am going to hit him "head on" and there was nothing I could do but crash. He was making a left right in front of me into the golf course.
My child was looking down and neither of us had more than one second to think. I knew I would crash, the next thing I knew the air bag was before me and saved my life. My child didn't even know there was danger. The air bag came out before they even knew that anything was wrong.
I did not have more than one second to think. I knew I was going to crash and the next thing I knew I was saved by the air bag that had come out before me. There was smoke because there was a fire under the hood.
For years Mary has told me about her children on the edge of death. For years she would appear and lament the children going into hell. For years I have heard Our Lord talk about the soul on the edge of death.
This was an experience that changed my life. This was just July 30, 1998. That night I did an interview for Shepherds of Christ as a lead story on the 11:00 news. I ran from the accident and went to the interview already in progress with our president. At 8:40 the TV people left the president of Shepherds of Christ's house and it was the lead story on the 11:00 news.
When I was having the accident and tied up at the accident site, our president was on television telling them about our Ministry and the Florida Image building.
My car was totaled, but I was not finished for the night. After I left the interview about 10:00 I had a flat tire in the newly borrowed car.
At exactly 11:00 when the story aired, the second wrecker came for me that day to fix the flat tire.
I do believe Satan was quite angered because we were airing on television and telling the world about Mary's image and the building in Florida.
I present this story here because Our Lord told me to share it with you today. I did not have time to tell God I was sorry or to tell Him I love Him. I learned a very valuable lesson. I was in a "head on" crash in which I and my child should have been killed, but we were saved, and I had this experience to tell to others.
I know that a soul on the edge of death may or may not have time to reckon with the Lord. I know the time is nigh as Mary said on December 19, 1996, two days after she appeared in Florida. After hearing our Mother lament and cry out for her children, I know a little of what it may be like for a soul on the edge of death.
Jesus speaks: Your life is lived to have an always greater sharing in My life. You were created to grow more and more in your image and likeness to God. This is your goal. This is what satisfies your soul. The fate of souls dead in sin is for all eternity, they will pay for their deeds. I give you a heavenly reward for loving and serving your God. Why would you be so willful and smite Him?
January 10, 1994 3:30 a.m.
Jesus: Each knee must bow in reverence to the King. Each child must realize that he or she will someday be standing at the door to My kingdom. Each waits for entry and entry is based on your love here. Did you love God? Did you love your fellow man? Are you ready to claim an award that is fit for the glorious souls who served Me?
I am the Alpha and Omega. All that seems to give you momentary pleasure is so passing. The things of this world are so small compared to the things of God. Ready your hearts for a mighty King. He will come unannounced and blow His trumpet. All will be called from their places and all will be unable to leave. You will be summoned and, at that point, your free will will be gone.
Do you say, "But, Lord, Lord, I meant to serve you but it was too hard to let go of my selfish things. God, I know you call now, but I am not ready now. Can I go back and do some more good works? When You called me to love, I wanted to, Lord, but I wanted to do for myself, too. I knew I could have loved more and followed my heart, but, Lord, I don't know why I said no. I just always did."
I am Jesus, Son of God. At this point it will be too late. When I called and beckoned you in your life to serve Me and serve your brother, you said, "No, Lord." You watched a sick world parade its sick wares in front of you and you thought for a moment's pleasure you needed to be as the world instructed.
And I called you and I prompted you and others stood by and showed you My ways. And you said, "Oh, no, I need no ways of God. I love the world, sick or not, and I will be loyal to all its crafty ways. I didn't like the murder of the babies. I didn't like the homosexuality. I didn't think the filthy sex on TV was right, but I wanted to be loyal to the world so I accepted their sick ways and shunned you, Lord.
"At Your name I balked and I went along with a stiff jaw and a hardened heart and was taught the things of the world. I felt You, Lord, at the door of my heart. I knew You were there from time to time. I wanted to let You in someday, but, Lord, that day never came. Now I know You are truly here and You are beautiful. Let me live again and I will now put You in my life. Give me another chance, Lord. Now that I behold You and Your goodness, I see the error in my ways and I want to love You. I don't know why I turned my back on You. I just did."
You, My child, were willful. You plugged up My line to you and you chose sin instead of the ways of God. You took your life for yourself and you never once did My work. You shunned Me. You laughed at Me. You made fun of Me, but still went to church, just in case it was real. Blessed are they who have not seen and have believed. I was there at every turn. I paraded in front of you and I pursued you with a heart of Godly love, but you turned away and spit in My face. Your hearts became hard and your jaw stiff and you followed a road that lead you to the destruction of your soul.
I say to you, My child, now, before you are called by Me: why do you turn your back on Him Who loves you? Why do you battle for a devilish world when the tender heart of God waits for you? How can you, with this beautiful heart created for God and longing to love God, say, "No, God, I need you not," and turn to such sterile, sick, cold acts that the world gives you? Money is so cold. Do you feel the change you pick up? It is like ice! It does not warm a cold heart. It feels as it is, cold and hard. Dollar bills are paper, little pieces of used, dirty paper. You choose these things when a heart on fire with love of you waits by your side. You choose an evil society that murders babies and talk about your rights as a person when I preach dignity and love for you!
Oh, child, how I love you. If you are reading this letter, it is not too late for you. I stand hyper-vigilant by your side, with a heart ablaze for love of you. I wait for you every minute of every day in the tabernacle. I am all powerful. This world has no power. The world will vanish like smoke and My ways will last forever. I am so good! I have such gifts to give your hungry soul. You stand as a starved child who hasn't eaten in years. What would a meal do for such a person? I can give you what your soul hungers after. I can give you what you thirst for. Your soul never stops longing. It roams a cold world and looks for peace and finds none. Only in God will the searching soul find rest.
Quit going to the world, America. Your money is cold and your hearts are just as cold. You have lost touch with the warmth of Jesus. The devil has turned your hearts into ice cubes and you have silenced the longing for God in your chests so your jaws are stiff and you are hard-necked. You are going to be sorry. You missed the love of God. Nothing on this earth compares to His love and His goodness!
You missed peace and joy in your heart. You missed them. If you have eyes to read, listen to Me. Stop it! It isn't too late. Your world leads to the destruction of your soul. You are never going to be able to come back and live your life for Me again. I come as a thief in the night and you will not know the time or the hour. I will come unannounced. All that remains for you are the things of God. Your money, your house, your clothes, your car are all passing. Like the grass of the field, they die and you will live. You cannot take one thing with you on your journey to Me except your good works and the love in your heart.
Turn your life around. I wait for you at this moment with eager arms. I am alive in the tabernacle this day, waiting for your return. I am truly present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, waiting there for you with all My gifts. Take the wall from your heart and let Me fill you. Your jaws will become tender and supple and you will know relief in your breast.
You are holding yourself away from that to which you are pulled. It is a magnetic attraction which the soul has to Me. You make a conscious effort to say "no" and pull yourself from Me. Silly ones, what will you do on that last day when I call you from your sleep and say, "Now your time is over"? Then it will be too late for you to come. Then your life will be over and you will have lost the reward of everlasting life. For a few years of willfulness you lost everlasting life. I have pursued you like an ardent lover. I walked before you and sent others to teach you the errors in your ways, but you were willful and you went your own way. Now you will pay the price for your willfulness forever. Is it worth that? For what?
