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.

Messenger: From this moment onward, I will gaze on the wounds in Your hands and the lance in Your side, realizing that You loved me so much You gave Yourself in such torture and persecution for me and You died for me.

This is my confirmation that I am worthy to be called a son of God, for you gave Yourself up in love as a sacrifice for me.

The crucifix and my constant vision of it within me, seeing Your wounds is my truth. God, my Savior, loved me so much He died for me.

MY EYES must feast on this throne of glory, the beauty of His wounded hands and feet and side. It is confirmation that I am worth it to Him and He died for me. He, God, died for me. Alleluia, living in this vision, meditating on His sorrowful mysteries, I know the mystery more and more of His love and His confirmation that He stands behind me as I battle to be a soldier for Christ.

I live to be His soldier, I focus on His wounded hands and feet. I am a little baby in Mary’s arms.

November 9, 1999 - Second Message

Jesus speaks: You can be holy-doers, but you must have periods of silence with Me or you will be off course. After Communion you should spend twenty minutes. A part of your holy hour should be spent in silence. Some people can become addicted to habit in prayer. How would a man like it if his wife rattled words at him all the time, maybe much of the time, without thought or without heart. You can softly recite the rosary in your hearts and meditate on that mystery in your lives, but the recitation and rattling prayer can be addictive. I want action from the heart, heartfelt prayer. At times of great temptation, however, one may be forced to say the prayers without being able to concentrate as one wishes. Sometimes it is a struggle to pray when you are being taunted by Satan. Satan will work as never before to create cases in your mind against the other person. You must trust one another in the Movement. When a sudden change of emotion occurs because of thoughts or outside influences, you must stop and beg for help for the truth.

What you all want is the truth so you will all be united in My truth. You must work in love. Relationships that are essential must not be hindered by jealousy, but all must be careful not to create relationships that cause imbalance in power. Power comes from Me.

Children should not act together against parents when a parent has the right authority to give dictates.

There are rules I have given for comminutes. In communities those underneath should not skip over those immediately above them and go to the top to get power that is not rightfully theirs. These are the general rules that must be followed. If one underneath complains constantly to those above their immediate superior, they create a "sandwich effect" which causes major problems and can in effect tear the community apart. All should want the relationships that God has ordained for proper functioning to do His work.

There cannot be jealousy which breaks up relationships that are necessary.

There cannot be the jumping of the lines of authority for personal power.

The person that does not accept the structure causes it to malfunction. If all want God’s will and try to live by it, your community will operate very well. That is the key.

Matthew 12:46-50
The true kinsfolk of Jesus

He was still speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him. But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?’ And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’

Jesus speaks: Sing the song Let There Be Peace on Earth.

I want you to have peace in love with each other, you must memorize:

I Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. Love never comes to an end...

Jesus speaks: I have told you earlier. You must follow the lines of authority. I need you to do this work. Please do not let Me down. I have called you to be an apostle.

Even Peter made mistakes. I show you in the Scriptures. He was a good Apostle. I made him head of the Church, but I said to him:

Matthew 16:21-23
First prophecy of the Passion

From then onwards Jesus began to make it clear to his disciples that he was destined to go to Jerusalem and suffer grievously at the hands of the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death and to be raised up on the third day. Then, taking him aside, Peter started to rebuke him. ‘Heaven preserve you, Lord,’ he said, ‘this must not happen to you.’ But he turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle in my path, because you are thinking not as God thinks but as human beings do.’

November 9, 1999 - A Message to Leaders - Third Message

Jesus speaks: You must be docile and humble and not think you know it all. You must be willing to change. Give up control. Spend your time with Me in silence. Anyone who does not study the messages is a threat to the Movement. Leaders must follow the messages.

I am God, you are My leaders, I have called you. I love you so much, I love you so much, I love you so much. I beg you to love each other. Satan causes division.

Messenger: I hide in His wounds.

Jesus speaks: Enter through My pierced Heart.

God the Father, Jesus, and Mary are calling all to pray in front of Mary’s image in Clearwater, Florida, on December 17, 1999. This important day marks the 3-year anniversary of Mary’s appearance on the building. God is asking us to gather for this special day, praying for peace, and especially to make reparation to God, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

October 11, 1999 - Jesus speaks: …I want all who can come to Florida December 17, 1999, to come there. Mary wants the apostles gathered in prayer, but if you cannot come, then you pray fervently.

October 15, 1999 - Jesus speaks: I wish you to come and pray with the greatest fervor before the image of My Mother December 17, 1999. …Please come and pray. If this is impossible, pray as a body before the tabernacle and at all Centers including: Toledo, Ohio; California; Kansas; Pennsylvania; Delaware; wherever one is able to pray. I love you, Jesus.

October 26, 1999 - God the Father speaks: You are the children of Eve. You are sons of that woman and I send you the Woman, your Mother and you ignore her.

I want a body of people praying strongly for the priests, the Church and the world beneath the image at 6:20 p.m. on December 17, 1999, and all others praying as a body united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I wish all priests who can to celebrate Mass at 6:20 p.m. on December 17, 1999, and every day after, until Christmas. I wish all to pray this novena for these days December 17, 1999-December 25, 1999 at 6:20 praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit, healing, oneness, to be spread with the Blood of Jesus as directed by My Son in a message February 23, 1999. I want this. I want fervent prayer. I want unity in the hearts. I want men praying as a body at 6:20 p.m. as requested by Jesus and Mary. I want communal reparation by all receiving Communion and/or making a spiritual Communion united to the Mass.

I wish an invitation to this gathering to be circulated, stressing making reparation to God, reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

January 5, 1999 - God the Father speaks: It is because of your fervor to pray here that you have held back the hand of My Son from punishing the earth with just punishment for the crimes committed against your God.

Please come and join us for prayer at the site in Clearwater, Florida, the other sites mentioned in this invitation, or from wherever you can. Thank you and God bless you,

November 9, 1999 - Nursing Home Message - Fifth Message

Jesus speaks: My precious nursing home loved ones,

Enter through My pierced Heart. Take refuge in My Heart. I will touch you in My wounds of love. There you will feel safe and know peace and joy.

Peace on earth, good will to men.

Every day is a new day.

A day closer to your reward in heaven.

Messenger: When visiting a nursing home this is a plan you can follow to pray a little part of the rosary with the elderly or sick residents.

What is usually done and tolerated by the elderly folks is one Our Father, five Hail Mary's and another Our Father. The song, A Song from Jesus, can be sung before and after these prayers.

It is desirable to have a big picture of Our Lord Ascends into Heaven when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Excerpt from October 13, 1996 rosary, "Our Lord Ascends into Heaven" from the Apostles' Manual Our Lord Ascends into Heaven 

Our Lord Ascends into Heaven

  1. Messenger:He took His apostles out to the place of His Ascension and He raised His arms and He ascended into heaven....
  2. ...How do we treat Jesus? Do we treat Him as if He is alive? Do we love Him with all our heart, our whole soul and our whole being? Do you hear the laments of our beloved Savior, the Almighty God, Who gave Himself and died on the cross? He is alive. He wants this burning love affair with us. Many of the Masses, many of our prayers, are said with lack of emotion in our hearts. He wants us to love Him with the deepest burning love, not to go through the motions. Every prayer is a love affair with our beloved Savior. The Rosary we sing-(the Rosary song), and He wants us to say from our heart, the bottom of our heart, "Jesus, we love You. Mary, we love you. Oh, the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love of Their Two Hearts. Oh the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love of Their Two Hearts."...
  3. Jesus speaks: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your heart. Open your heart and let Me come inside of you. I want to touch My beloved souls this day. Will you say "yes" to this calling?
  4. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your hearts.
    Jesus no longer walks this earth, but He is alive and He lives in us.
  5. Jesus speaks:I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I am the Almighty God, all powerful. You see with such limited vision. You must surrender and let go and let Me run your life. You are holding on, My beloved ones. You must realize that I am all powerful, all mighty, and that I am guarding you and I am with you in a special way this day.
  6. Carry My light into the darkness.
    Messenger:And the light came across the dark sky and many were touched with the fire of His love....

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel inside when I share my feelings and you support and love me and try to understand?
