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: Continued from the writings recorded on the feast of St. Francis Xavier, December 3, 1996. (The beginning of this writing appeared yesterday Dec. 6, 1999)

Jeremiah 20:7-9

You have seduced me, Yahweh,
    and I have let myself be seduced;
you have overpowered me:
    you were the stronger.
I am a laughing-stock all day long,
they all make fun of me.
For whenever I speak, I have to howl
and proclaim, ‘Violence and ruin!’
For me , Yahweh’s word has been the cause
of insult and derision all day long.
I would say to myself,
    ‘I will not think about him,
I will not speak in his name any more,’
but then there seemed to be a fire
    burning in my heart,
imprisoned in my bones.
The effort to restrain it wearied me,
I could not do it.

Jeremiah 1: 7-8

But Yahweh replied,
‘Do not say, "I am only a child,"
for you must go to all to whom I send you
and say whatever I command you.
Do not be afraid of confronting them,
for I am with you to rescue you,
Yahweh declares.’

Messenger: We unite to Him, He is reigning now, people will partake more fully when He reigns in all hearts.

He is lifting the veil and reigning in our hearts now, as it will be when there is the reign of the Sacred Heart.

I am one with Him in the Mass. It overwhelms me to experience this. I am overwhelmed with His love for all in the Mass.

I feel tremendous, overwhelming love for Him and from Him, I am filled with immense love for all, for all heaven and earth and souls in purgatory as I am one in Him.

I feel immense unity with all He created and love for all.

When I am in immense oneness, I an overwhelmed with experiencing the Mass through His Heart and Mary’s Heart. I cannot describe it in words.

I loved God to such depth - loving God from her Heart and His Heart.

I was overwhelmed with the love of God and all He created because of my union with Him.

In this oneness great grace is outpoured.

How tremendously great it is when the priest is intensely one with Him.

HE LIVES AND REIGNS now - so many are missing it.

I experience the Mass as He reigns in my heart.

Zephaniah 3: 9-10, 14-20

Conversion of the nations

Yes, then I shall purge
the lips of the peoples,
so that all may invoke
    the name of Yahweh
and serve him shoulder to shoulder.
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia,
my suppliants will bring me tribute.

Psalms of joy in Zion

Shout for joy, daughter of Zion,
Israel, shout aloud!
Rejoice, exult with all your heart,
daughter of Jerusalem!
Yahweh has repealed your sentence;
he has turned your enemy away.
Yahweh is king among you, Israel,
you have nothing more to fear.

When that Day comes,
    the message for Jerusalem will be:
Zion, have no fear,
do not let your hands fall limp.
Yahweh your God is there with you,
the warrior-Saviour.
He will rejoice over you with happy song,
he will renew you by his love,
he will dance with shouts of joy for you,
as on a day of festival.

Return of the exiles

I have taken away your misfortune,
no longer need you bear
    the disgrace of it.
I am taking action here and now
against your oppressors.
When that time comes
    I will rescue the lame,
and gather the strays,
and I will win them praise and renown
when I restore their fortunes.

At that time I shall be your guide,
at the time when I gather you in,
I shall give you praise and renown
among all the peoples of the earth
when I restore your fortunes
    under your own eyes,
declares Yahweh.

Messenger: I feel every word in the Mass, I am so one in Him, He lets me experience the words.

As a two edged sword that penetrates the soul.

We pray to St. Ignatius.

Oh God, we want to be one in holiest love so we will be Your faithful servants and obey Your will.


Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in Thee.

John 15:16

You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
so that the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.

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.

Refuse to Worry God's Blue Book II Cover

January l5, 1994 4:50 a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus, your Savior. When you are tired and weary, come to Me. I wait for you as would a doting mother, ready to kiss your little wounds and send you out to play.

I love you so, little one. Come and be with Me in your heart. Do not worry about anything concerning this book. My hand is in everything and I will see to its publishing Myself. Do you fret and fume for nothing? I am God. Why should you worry for the work of God? Do you not think I will take care of My own work? I tend to everything that needs to be done in your life. You are so precious to Me. There is not one thing that happens that I have not consented to.

To be able to be in the midst of adversity and struggle and say, "God's hand is here and He knows what is happening; I will let go of my anxiety and be at peace," is to reach a great plateau of trust in Me! Trust in Me in all your trials. Refuse to worry. What good does such a needless task perform? If I am God and I am there in every moment of your life and you truly believe it, what are you doing letting yourself worry?

Child, I have so much love for you that I died on the a cross for you. Look at Me there. I spread My arms and came for you. I love you this much, this very day. How do I make you realize how much you mean to Me? Well, I am here in everything you are experiencing. There is not one thing that happens without My consent. Do you hear Me? Think of one of your little hairs falling out. I am that hyper-vigilant. I know whence that hair came. I know the very pore on your head it fell from.

If I, Jesus, am that attentive to you and everything that is happening with you, what are you doing worrying? It is your trust and faith in Me that gives you peace. Practice letting go on all matters. Refuse to worry. Place every care in My hands and trust I will tend to it. You, My child, are so precious. I want you to know how I am truly there, loving you and watching you and guarding you.

I watch you like a doting mother lest you stumble and fall and lose your way. In that little trial, practice turning it over to Me. Trust in Me. It is an act of your will to truly trust Me or to worry about your problem.

Listen to Me saying, "Child, I love you, child, I am love, child, don't worry. Turn your burden over to Me." You can be free of worry if you let go. Sail away in your hot air balloon. Drop the package of worries at the foot of My cross and sail away in a trouble-free sky.

You are lifted to such heights in My love! I am so powerful. I can do all things. I am working in your life at every moment. I never leave you abandoned. Take this opportunity to get closer to Me.

It is in your trials you are taught how to trust. Do not curse the dark nights. Come to Me and let Me light your way. Take each trial as an opportunity to get closer to Me. Ascend the ladder to trust in the Lord. You develop trust a step at a time. Trust must be developed by you. Pray that you will learn all the lessons on trust I am sending you.

You are so favored, My little sweet one. I love you. I love you. I love you. Come to Me weary and leave carefree. Only I can take a burdened heart and give it rest. Do not go to your brothers and complain. Keep reading My letters to you (December 30, 1993). Know which letters are those that set you free of worry.

Note: In His December 30 letter He said, "It is in acceptance of all things that you are drawn closer to Me. Do not try to throw back into My face the little opportunity for grace you receive. Child, I am ever by your side and I am ever teaching you. Know that My hand is in everything you are experiencing. I am vigilant and by your side. Nothing happens to you that I have not consented to. I love you. Trust in Me."

Messenger: Jesus, I trust in You!

Jesus speaks: Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I am there with you. Turn to Me. Turn to Me alone and I will give you rest. Oh, you, who are heavily burdened, I will give you rest!

(end of  Blue Book II message)

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 The Presentation of our Lord in the Temple when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Excerpt from July 13, 1995 rosary, "The Presentation of our Lord in the Temple" from the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary The Presentation Stained Glass Window 

The Presentation of our Lord in the Temple

  1. Messenger: The child Jesus was taken to the Temple and presented to the Father.
  2. Mary was told by Simeon of the sufferings to come. He said to Mary, "…and a sword will pierce your soul too." (Lk 2:35)
  3. Let our hearts be filled with the life of the Almighty God. May our hearts sing, for we are given great gifts. In this room today, the Almighty God is present. His Mother is with us, mothering us and loving us.
  4. Jesus: Satan aims to trip you up and stop you in your path. The Almighty God is speaking to you. What have you to fear? Father, Son and Holy Spirit live within your heart. If the world shakes and the sun ceases to shine, within your heart you can feel the presence of your Father, Son and Holy Spirit so close to you and loving you. Release all your anxieties and let Me bathe you in a bath of My love. I am Jesus, and I am outpouring to you My life.
  5. Messenger: The Presentation in the Temple is such an important mystery! Mary was told that a sword, too, would pierce her soul. All grace is released through Mary.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel suffering in our relationship has led us to greater life?
