Messenger:       Did you see the city sleeping - the dark
                    night - the electric lights and so much light
                    comes from above - slowly - the lights of
                    electricity once bright at night fall - now
                    become almost unnoticeable, at high noon
                    undistinguished entirely -

                        The real light from above replaces the
                    glow of the electric lights -
 
                        A night can be richly blessed even in
                    the mask of darkness - lessons are learned that
                    can lead to a glorious morning.

                        Christ hung surrounded by dark skies
                    to His death - He was put in a tomb, night came
                    outside - how was the night in the tomb?

                        Christ had died on the cross
                        Jonah put in the belly of the whale -
                        Christ the belly of the earth -
                        man told - thou art dirt & unto dirt you
                            shall return -
 
                        Every day - the city sleeps - like being put
                    in the tomb every night to rise to the morning -
 
Jesus speaks:    Rise children of Zion to the splendor
                     of the morning.


Messenger:       For every day I lived I saw the sun come and
                    the sky take on a glorious wonder - no two were
                    a like - almost like a canvas of glorious
                    wonder - the strokes of God are so varied - today a
                    glorious morn of lighted pinks like ruffles of a petticoat
                    laced with the splendor of blue.

                        Give rise to the morning - sleeping children of
                    Adam - you sleep day, after day, but do not read the
                    story of the morning too good - nor even reflect why
                    every day God calls you to crawl out of the darkness of
                    the night.

1 Corinthians 15: 20-28

    In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

 

December 11. 2006 message continues

Jesus speaks:          When will your light dawn in your soul, oh Jerusalem,
                            a city lies sleeping - a morning richly blessed and like
                            babies being changed you don't see how daily you
                            crawl out of darkness - watching the glorious light
                            steal across the sky - a little at first - then a little
                            more- then - oh even your electric bulbs once bright
                            become unnoticeable -

                You build up from the earth - towers of Babel -
            towering buildings, but you do not see the building
            up of your own soul

                One man was making a sturdy pole from scratch - he started without
            a mold and slapped on wet mud - a little at a time -
            it turned more into a little mound of mud rather
            than the slender pole he desired to fashion -
            why could he not do it -
            he wanted to, but he needed a mold to help him -

                He could fill the mold - wait until it hardened - knock
            off the rough edges and have a beautiful slendorous
            pole -

                What do you desire of yourselves -

                Are you born like fragments of mud that you
            cake together to build whatever you can to have
            a mess -

                No child - you were created in the image and likeness
            of God and your life is to be lived so you are more and more
            filled by My grace

                night gives way to morning -

                morning is retired to night -

            the New Adam came forth from the tomb and the
                splendor of the glory of that morning -

            Every day is painted for you a new morning -
            richer than the one before -

                The sun never the same as the day before - I paint
            every sky with my hand and light the day with
            the light of the fire coming from My Sacred Heart -

            You measure things - like coal and water -

             I show you vastness and wonder and yet you do not
                comprehend -  you see as measuring Me by
                your thimble instruments -

Messenger:           The sun was more magnificent than I ever saw
                                so big and golden and bright - I could even
                                feel the warmth over the reflecting
                                waters even though the trees were bear.

                                I saw the beauty of the creator - the splendor
                            of another beautiful day - the bigness of the sky
                            that surrounds me - vastness and light as if it
                            could never end -

                                Why God - night - then day

                                Why tomb and resurrection

                                Why suffering and joy

                                Why apples in a garden

                                Why man on the earth -

                            The garden is the earth -
                            The water falling to help it grow
                            The soil the dirt we walk on
                            The seed the love in our hearts -
                            The generations - growing and growing
                                especially since the time of Christ
                                filled with His life - His love

                            Babies grow - don't they -
                                they are kind of little and "dumb"
                                    at first and
                                  yet they grow in wisdom and
                                    age

                            Why did God make babies like this

                            They go through a process and get old and wise
                                                           grow big

                            Why did God make trees this way -
                                a seed, then big, then die

                            Why did God plant me with my body and
                                soul on this earth if not to
                                grow in wisdom and age -

                            Babies are little

                                Babies grow big and smart

                                Do we miss the story of Christmas

                                Christ born a baby in a stable -

                                Christ the First Fruits -

                                Planted by the animals -

                            And He hung on the tree -

                                the New Adam -

                                Selfless

                                Crowned with thorns from His own creation

                            Oh bare wood of the stable and
                                bare wood of the tree they hung the Son of God on

                            Why do we adorn ourselves with the perishable
                                things of this life - our hard plastics and
                                artificial paraphernalia -
                                when we miss the skies of morning and
                                the tomb of night -

                            One day and we will not be able to learn the
                                lessons - the creator so richly teaches
                                    for those who filled with the
                                        Spirit can know

                             Man hangs his tinsel on the tree and misses the
                                manger at Bethlehem

                            The night richly Blessed when the Savior came -
                                this Christmas let sinful man see the error
                                in their ways -

                                flood us with your grace and fill us with
                                    the wisdom of the saints - not the
                                    debauchery of some wild rock stars

                                Oh peace on this earth -
                                    Good will to men comes in
                                    wishing men to live on this vast garden
                                    called earth - growing to fuller maturity
                                    living by God's rules - in harmony amongst
                                    God's creation

                                Living according to God's Plan

                                Living according to God's will

                            Once a man went out by the most beautiful sea -
                                God's fairest creation and he sinned
                                    mortally under God's sky's and on
                                    God's earth and
                                    he taught others about his sinful ways -

                            The angels in heaven blushed to see the brazen
                                ways of this man - so brass to sin like
                                that under the eyes of the creator -

                            When asked why he did this -
                                He retorted -
                                " I know not the man, nor your God and
                                        he strutted off using God's creation -
                                        the little mite he was with such
                                            a pompous way"

                                You can write the end of that story -

                                It doesn't look too good to me -

                            Harmony -

                            Truth

                            Vision -

                            God painted the sky for me today and
                            He gave me a night to sleep and rest and reflect -

                            Some may turn the night to day and day to night,

                                but we cannot ignore the creator -

                                not His Plan for us

                            Try if you want, but it is like this story

                                Does a square peg fit in a round hole?

                            Do fish come from the sea dancing -

                            How is it that man can share ever more
                                deeply in God's life -

                            Why Daddy -

                                Why did you God the Father make
                                    human babies cry -

                                Why are some men blind and deaf

                            Why do we not see the lessons God teaches
                                    or are we like the one who says -
                                    " I do not know the man -
                                        So we can do what we want"

                            Oh glorious splendor - God's beautiful
                                creation -
                                a sea of glass - coated with golden
                                    light - such vision

                            I saw the visions of His reflective light
                                around the exposed Eucharist -
                                golden and mirror-like -
                                golden and mirror-like -
                                and it looked like a crack to see beyond
                                    into heaven, but he never showed
                                      me in there - I saw what I
                                        saw - 

                                but I knew His marvelous light -

                            I knew the vision
                                March 26, 1996 -
                                9 months before Our Lady of Clearwater -
                                day after Feast of the Annunciation

                            This was followed by 2 more visions
                                one on Holy Saturday Night

 

                               

March 26, 1996

Very carefully discerned by Fr. Carter

Messenger:  I came to All Saints Church before a beautiful Monstrance of gold that contained Our beloved Savior. He was adorned in light, the altar beneath shone with the brightest light and the cross behind was entirely silhouetted with the same celestial light. I was overwhelmed with the presence of God and cried deeply from the awe of it all.

    To be so aware of the Almighty God truly present in His splendor and glory—to know the presence of God, to see the glistening of the gold and the light and reflection of the cross behind Him—my beauteous love—words do not exist to describe the rapture of a heavenly embrace! I cry because of the immense awe within my being to know Him. God truly present in His majesty and glory and oh, God, I behold the presence of a heavenly court. You opened wide the heavens and lifted up the veil and I knew You in Your splendor and glory. I behold God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." He is the Almighty God. He shows us the celestial lights with which He will light this earth. Many must surrender their hearts to His Heart and Mary's heart. It is in surrendering, the Spirit will move in the hearts of men and the light of God will shine on the darkened earth. Not with a light that you comprehend, but a light that is divinely granted—a light beyond all lights, a vision beyond all visions. It takes the surrender of minds and hearts to God. The Spirit cannot move in us when we are in control. Surrender and give Him our heart and He will make us fishers of men.

    We are His apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. He is sending us out into the world to light the hearts with His burning love. We are chosen by Him and He is giving us abundant graces to grow in our union with Him. He will light this world with His burning love. Our hearts must be open. We must surrender and let go and reach beyond the senses, reach with our hearts. Pray for faith, pray for the vision of God.

Note:  I cried all through this writing, having the presence of God and being in great ecstasy to behold Him. May God touch your heart and may His Spirit move within you. May you be filled with the grace of God to surrender and let Him accomplish a great work within you.

    And I was filled on high with His miraculous light and He reached down and spoke within me. I was filled as never before and knew the presence of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Note:  As I finished, the bells at All Saints Church rang at 9:00 A.M. As I began to experience the immense splendor, the bells of 8:00 rang. Words do not express anything that I saw or experienced or know from this ecstasy. This was the greatest and the first of three visions, which defined clearly to me our role in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Jesus defines clearly the role of Fr. Carter in this great mission given to him by the Father.

For Fr. Carter from Jesus:

Jesus speaks:  To him who has eyes to see, they will see - not with earthly vision, but with the eyes of faith, and to him who has ears to hear, he will hear with the fluttering of the Spirit moving within him.

    I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am the Almighty God. I say to the rocks to fall and they fall and to the grass, grow, and it grows, and to the sun, shine, and it shines. I give to you My love in these letters. Filled with My love, you will conquer this earth, not with weapons and powder or force, but with fires of My love. The fire will wipe out the hatred in the cold hearts and the earth will be covered with My celestial light. The earth will rock and I will appear in the heavens adorned in power and glory and the contrite hearts will be saved. I came to separate the sheep from the goats, the light from the darkness. I come and no one pays Me heed.

    To you, My beloved son, Father Carter, I have sent you on a mission to spread this fire that will cover this earth. The hearts of men will turn from their sick and desolate ways to hearts gentle as a little lamb.

    There will be one flock and one Shepherd and My staff will rule over all. Hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will lead the light across the earth. This light will be a light of intense brightness, brighter and hotter than any light from a flame. It will be the fire of God's love. The Spirit will move in the hearts of all consecrated to My Heart, and you will know how fire truly spreads, for the love of God is a fire. It is vibrant. It is encompassing. It is smoldering, burning deep within and speedily spreading on the outside. No fire on this earth can ever describe the burning embers that burn from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. No fire burns like the fires coming from My Heart and hearts filled with the love from the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    I have written your name, Fr. Carter, in My Heart, never ever to be blotted out and this earth will be renewed with the fire of God's love through you. You are My beloved priest-son, forever, according to the order of Melchizedek. Most holy and most sacred are your hands that consecrate the Host and write My precious newsletter for My beloved priest-sons. You are never unguarded. You are held within the deepest chamber of My Heart, and you will spread My love to the priest-sons of this earth.

    I am Jesus. You will spread My love to all souls on this earth. I love you with the tenderest burning love. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

April 9, 1996

Messenger: I went to All Saints Church - saw with eyes unveiled- such an aura of celestial light. I went to Communion, had the presence of God, wanted to cry so hard from the awe of it all. I was not feeling good and He wrapped me as only He can do in His heavenly embrace. My soul sang out and the vision began. My eyes now are still seeing with this effect. He, as it were, lifts up the hard, defined lines and I see with a celestial aura. This is what I see when I see a vision. The rocks in the grotto Mary has appeared in glisten and they are sparkling. LINES are not defined, instead they are adorned in light. Saturday (April 6, 1996, Holy Saturday) I saw the whole wall adorned in the brightest light, St. Joseph was surrounded in this thick light, like comes from a fire, like a celestial mirror. I don't know how to describe it, it is as a mirror with light in it, but no light like our human eyes have seen. I looked at St. Joseph and he was pushing the Child Jesus out at us, the Baby coming out glistening in light. The statue of the resurrected Lord was alive. All the flowers were topped with this light. This is how it was and is now at All Saints Church. It is as if heaven has poured its light on the earth and it tops the flowers. All distinct lines are gone. In their place is light. So all I look at has a splendor.

Today the vision started as the Eucharist was exposed. I knew it was coming. I had this immense presence. Then the lines began to disappear and became smudged with light.

It is the most glorious occurrence to be in the vision. I can talk and tell someone what I am seeing, but I don't want to, I just want to rest in the celestial occurrence and realize the presence of God.

He lifts the veil and I see with eyes unveiled. This is what Mary said from the Lady of Grace statue at the Holy Spirit Center before all this started. She said there would be miracles around the Eucharist. I didn't think she meant I would experience these.

When I saw her 3 times, she had this same light around her. The last time, I think it lasted an hour (March 10). She was beyond description. March 17 may be when she told me about the Eucharist. I must check my notes.


April 9, 1996

Messenger: After Communion I had this immense presence of God. I knew a vision was coming. My vision gets a certain way. The distinct lines I see before me begin to disappear and are smudged with light.

Then I saw again the celestial lights of heaven. It was as though light was spilled from heaven and landed on the flowers and the corners of everything. The Eucharist took on an immense warmth and I knew God truly present in this room.

I saw with eyes unveiled in my soul and in the room. The room had a celestial aura, it no longer looked defined and clear. It was bathed in a gentle, celestial film and all I saw I wanted to tell to those around me. But I was so caught in His embrace that my mouth did not want to move.

Grace is being spilled on the earth. I have seen this celestial light come upon the altar of sacrifice, the monstrance and the cross. The vision on March 26 (1996) I will never forget as long as I live. The light is so thick and so intense as if the heavens open in these cracks of light and there is a depth far beyond that which any mind can envision.

The sky opened up and it rained down its grace. It opens when hearts are one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Messenger:               A blindman cannot see -

                                God imparts to us His vision -

                            When the night is dark and it lightnings -
                                it is awesome -
                                one can see telephone poles -
                                house tops - only for a split second -
                                then it is dark again -

                            He has imparted to me vision like this -

                                The shade down and then the roller
                                    shade goes up with a blinding
                                    light - pouring in the once
                                    darkened room

                                and the babies cry -
                                Why do babies come like babies and
                                    why do they cry -

                                How can man be so pompous and sinful to
                                        kill the life God gives

                                Little creatures we are against an all
                                    Powerful God -

                                The sky was dark blue, but from
                                    somewhere unseen to me a
                                    golden sun light poured in

                                The earth looked lighted by a mysterious
                                    light -

                                We prayed and hoped for a day when the veil
                                    would be lifted and

                                Almost as mysteriously as it showed the
                                    light was removed, but the
                                    hope - lingered in our hearts and
                                    lives in us today -

                                We walk by faith, but God
                                    has imparted to us deep
                                    insight into His mysteries, but we are
                                    too busy looking for spools of thread
                                    for our foolish whims -
                                    gold under bushes - we never have seen -
                                        nor found -
                                    looking for the fountain of  life -
                                        when
                                        life is found IN HIM

                                Do you know - our eyes get bad
                                    and we need - corrective
                                    lenses

                                We try to see and then we just can't
                                    see to good without this aid -
                                    corrective lenses -

                                We try to hear and people when they get old
                                    often can't hear at all - so some
                                    can correct it with hearing aids -

                                God has given his Movement to lead the
                                    souls to the Hearts of Jesus and
                                     Mary -

                                When people give their heart to Mary -
                                    the Holy Spirit works in her
                                    Spiritual womb - to bring them
                                    forth -
                                    children of light

 

 

                                Our job is to spread the corrective lens -
                                        consecration to the Heart of Jesus and
                                                                                    Mary

                          

John 10:1-19

‘In all truth I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold through the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a bandit. He who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gate-keeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out. When he has brought out all those that are his, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow because they know his voice. They will never follow a stranger, but will run away from him because they do not recognise the voice of strangers.’
Jesus told them this parable but they failed to understand what he was saying to them.
        So Jesus spoke to them again:

In all truth I tell you,
I am the gate of the sheepfold.
All who have come before me
are thieves and bandits,
but the sheep took no notice of them.
I am the gate.
Anyone who enters through me
   will be safe"
such a one will go in and out
and will find pasture.
The thief comes
only to steal and kill and destroy.
I have come
so that they may have life
and have it to the full.
I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
  because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.
