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.

Jesus speaks: You have taught My children in schools to twist the Word of God that they will not come to My Word with an open heart. Woe to the teacher that plants seeds in the mind of the young that causes confusion about My Word. You do not follow the 10 Commandments. You have told yourselves you can make exceptions to most of the Commandments. I am the Lord Thy God and you shall not have other gods besides Me. Look at your world, you are worshipping a molten calf, money, sports, your bodies, your minds, your television, your pleasure, yourselves. Is your God your God? Oh America, listen to Me. You must pray the rosary and obey the Lady of Fatima or you will not have peace. I address America, land of plenty, what have you taught your children of truth in schools, in churches, in families? I am God, I will shake the earth for you have massacred My Word, disobeyed My Commandments and twisted the truth in the minds of the young. When My Mother appears, you turn your heads and your society becomes more ingrained in their evil ways.

I am God, I am offended, turn from your evil ways now or you will suffer chastisements as never before in history. I am finished with your deceptive ways. I am God, I call and I am ignored. Listen to Me and pray as We have instructed or your earth will be shaken with bombs that will shake your senseless ways. I AM GOD. YOU SHALL NOT HAVE OTHER GODS BESIDES ME. I AM JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD.

March 22, 1999 8:30 a.m.  -  Second Message

Jesus speaks: There is need of healing in the Father's family, in the Church and in the world. Because of the teaching passed down from generations past that hides the truth, many men fail to look at themselves and work on the imperfections. The attitude is this amongst many of God's children, "I am perfect and must do all I can to present a perfect image at all costs." The Church is a Pilgrim Church. It is in the state of growing more and more in my ways to reach full maturity. Holiness is the issue. The Church exists that men may grow in greater oneness with their God, that they are one in their lives with Him. The Church is the fountain of life. Mary and Myself, Jesus Christ, are the models given by your Father to follow. She is the Mediatrix of all grace. Mary is Mary most pure, Mother of the Church. Her role as Mother of the Church has been weakened by those in authority in the Church who do not model their lives after Mary.

Mary has authority in the Church.
Mary is Mother and model.
Mary is sinless, Immaculate, most pure.

If a priest does not honor Mary as his Mother, if a priest does not recognize the role of Mary as Mediatrix of all grace, if a priest does not recognize Mary in her most important role as his Mother, he will not teach this to the children in the Church.

Mary is Immaculate, conceived without sin, Mary is Mother.

Now I give you this parable. In a family a father will father as he is taught, a mother will follow based on his authority and the teaching of her own home.

Parents are taught to parent by the teachers (their parents that went before them).

In a particular family, the father does all to present his dominant authority. He sees the role of the woman as weak, he wishes all authority, he gives children authority over the woman who is the mother.

The Father in heaven gives authority to both father and mother as the primary authority over the children. Any dysfunction will cause the family to be weak and not operate properly. This opens cracks for the evil one to get in.

Mary is Mother. Mary is My Mother. Mary is your Mother. Mary is Mother of the Church.

I ask you to pray the Hail Mary, meditating on every word.

"Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women and
Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus."

The sentence, 'the Lord is with you', states, I AM WITH MARY which is given in the statement of Mary before Jacinta's death (referenced from page 8 of The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje book).

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her.19

19Our Lady's Peace Plan, op cit., pp.9-10.

Jesus speaks: "Blessed are you among women"

Mary is the highest human person. She is conceived without sin.

"And Blessed is the fruit of Thy womb."

I am the first fruits of the womb of the Mother.

1 Corinthians 15:21-28

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.

Jesus speaks: Then you say:

"Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death, Amen."

You recognize Mary as holy, as blessed among women and you recognize you are sinners.

The Hail Mary is a prayer of humility. Mary filled with the Holy Spirit, spoke when visiting Elizabeth:

Luke 1:46-55
The Magnificat

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
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,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,

    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
--according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors--
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

Jesus speaks: Mary recognizes her authority from God. She accepts it humbly. In the Hail Mary, you recognize Mary's authority from God, you recognize that you are sinners. You see Mary as full of grace, as the instrument used by God to bring Jesus into the world. You recognize her as Mother of God. The Hail Mary is the child of God's humble prayer. The Father wishes the children to come in humility recognizing their Mother and praying.

Satan has attacked authority. Satan always attacks authority. Satan wants the family to operate with improper authority. In the Church, Mary has authority as Mother. The Holy Spirit works most intimately with Mary bringing forth the fruit which is most holy. The Incarnation goes on in the children through the power of the Holy Spirit. There exists an intimate spousal union between Mother and Holy Spirit that brings forth holy children in the Church filled with the Spirit and filled with love on fire for God.

In the Nicene Creed, you say:

"We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son."

The permeating action of the Holy Spirit is that which fills the Church with life. The Holy Spirit makes holy the children of God. The Holy Spirit works with the Woman Clothed With the Sun breathing life into the fruit on the vine. They work together in a profound union. Those who search out the Holy Spirit, but fail to see the connection with Mary, miss the fullness of the oneness between Mary and her Spouse, the Holy Spirit.

There is such love when a person unites to the Trinity in the pure and holy, most Immaculate Heart of their Mother. She brings forth this exuberant love in the child through the power of the Holy Spirit. The love of God reaches a fullness in the child in this permeating action of Mother and Holy Spirit. The love the child has is filled with fire. The Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles on Pentecost and they were filled with fire. Mary was praying with the Apostles and tongues of fire were seen above their heads. A noise was heard like that of a strong wind.

Messenger: The Incarnation goes on in us. We are transformed more and more into the image and likeness of God through the workings of the Holy Spirit in the spiritual womb of the Virgin Mary.

The Holy Spirit

Excerpt from the Tell My People book (P. 9)

Jesus speaks: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

Messenger: The Persons of the Trinity possess the one divine nature. We do not understand this. It is a mystery but in the ecstasies I have experienced, I feel the presence of all of the Persons as I exist in this heightened level in God. I am existent IN HIM. My human nature is elevated and I am consumed with love. It is ecstatic union with God and it is all I crave for all eternity.

Note: This was written by the messenger exactly one year before Mary appearred on the building in Florida December 17, 1996.

December 17, 1995


I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.

You are so enormous, and You surrounded me in a burning embrace, the presence of red fire. I was not little, or "nothing", but existed in this enormous power and being so complete!

I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.

I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied. To describe this union is far beyond any work of my pen and paper. I pray for the reader of this page to receive the grace to share this experience with Him, I will now live for this union-to be forever merged In Him, to be One in Him, to reach higher perfection as I exist in Him, for He takes the lowly and gives to them a sharing in Himself. He merges with us and we exist in Him. The word "in" - I could write pages about. I long for the deepest union with Him, where I am swept up in the heavenly embrace of the Divine God, and I am IN Him.

This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.

The word I have looked for is "oneness." I understand some of the meaning of the words "One in Him." Oneness is the word to describe this union of our humanity with His Divinity. The depth to which we could meditate on oneness with God is incomprehensible. In that moment, the earth stood still, and He, my Divine Lover, the Bridegroom of my soul, took me to Himself, and I knew the embrace of the Divine God.

Nothing on the face of this earth can describe our union with Divinity. Oh, good God, that creatures are so ungrateful regarding Your divine love. I am so sorry. Let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart. Please unite with me now that I may more deeply love Thee.

Oh, Divine Lover of my soul, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You.

Song from Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.

He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.

Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.

Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.

He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.

Messenger: To have this heightened union with God, we must have this relationship with Mary. In consecration we give ourselves to her all pure, holy Heart. We are transformed through the working of the Holy Spirit.

Mary has the most perfect relationship of any human person with Christ.

Mary is the most perfect human person.

We are to model our lives after Mary.

All priests, all people are to model their lives after Mary. She is the most perfect disciple of the Lord.

She is to be honored as Mother of God.

She is to be honored as our Mother.

The Fourth Commandment says to honor our father and mother.

Priests in the Church must model their lives after Mary.

Priests must teach the children to model their lives after Mary.

Children need direction. The mother of a family is to help direct them. She has authority. Both mother and father help the children to do God's will.

Mary is our spiritual Mother.

Through consecration to Mary's Heart she leads us to focus on spiritual things.

She takes us to the Heart of her Son, Jesus. There we find the treasure of being united in a profound union with God.

From the litany we say:

Heart of Jesus, formed by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mother.

Heart of Jesus, sacred temple of God,
Heart of Jesus, tabernacle of the Most High,
Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven,

We are the children of Adam and Eve.

How can we model our lives after the New Adam and the New Eve if we do not study their lives?

The rosary is the prayer of the children of Mary. We address the Father and the Mother, we praise the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works with Mary giving us insights into the mysteries.

"Mary our Model, Mother of the Church, help us to turn to you."

The children of the earth must recognize the authority of Mary as Mother and Model. Mary and Jesus are the models of the fallen children of Adam and Eve.

In praying the rosary we grow in our relationship with Jesus and Mary. We know Them more intimately praying the mysteries of Their lives.

Messenger: On March 22, 1994, the building at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center collapsed because of Jesus' being displeased by His messages being ignored. This happened a little after 1:00 p.m.

Here is the message Jesus gave that day, March 22, 1994.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Please Preach of My Ardent Love

God's Blue Book II Cover

March 22, 1994

Messenger: I am filled with great sadness for the souls that are so blind as not to know Jesus and His beautiful love. I want to tell every soul of His ardent, on-fire love of them and how He waits with all the intense, immense love their starving souls crave.

I am only one person. If people read His letters, they would know how intently He loves them and waits to give them all they need. They are suffering. They are sick because they are missing His love. He has it all to give them when they come to Communion and sit in front of the tabernacle.

Jesus speaks: What is missing, My sweet one, is the love, the emotion. How I truly love them! You need to tell every person you speak to how I love them. That is what their starving souls crave. Stronger than any appetite is the craving for My love. You must tell them I love them. I, Jesus Christ, am in the tabernacle. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, am in the tabernacle. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, wait for My beloved ones to come to Me. They are suffering. They are in such distress. They are so blind. They walk around in circles and bump their heads. They follow paths at top speed that lead nowhere and I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died on the cross with the greatest love for them, sit alone. I have all they need. Their souls are starving.

You contain the mighty medicine to turn their hearts back to Me. I am Jesus Christ. I am God. I beg you to preach how I am here in your midst this very day and how I love each person so intently. Your sorrow, child, is from knowing how I love them and watching them in their blindness.

My sorrow is so intense. My heart is bleeding to give this message to My dear ones. My plea is urgent. Every moment wasted is hurting their souls. They need to know I am truly present in Communion and in the tabernacle. Out of great and ardent love, I, God, became a man and died on the cross. I am in your midst this very day and I am being ignored.

Even My faithful do not realize My intense, personal love. They think I am a God far off in the distance that they talk about!

I do not call you to a conversation about God. I call you to love! Love is action from your heart. Love is burning. Love is on fire. Love is personal. Love of God, not motions! Oh, such indifference in My church when they say in their monotone voice, "Oh, the love of God." This is the love that led Me to be born a mere human and die a brutal, anguishing death! I died for you for the love I have for you! I wait for you a prisoner in the tabernacle out of greatest love for you and you do not even know how personal I am!

I am Jesus, the same Jesus who died for you and I am there in Communion and in the tabernacle, and I am being ignored, treated with such irreverence.

Oh, please, preach about My love for My sick ones! You contain the key, the key to open their hearts and heal their aching souls. It is the on-fire, ardent love I have for each and every person.

I am God and I am speaking to My loved ones. You hold the medicine they need to make them better. Think how you are when you are sick and need medicine. They are hurting far worse than any flu could make them hurt. They are in pain, deep in their hearts. Their hearts have turned ice cold and their souls are on the way to death. One pebble in a pond creates such a ripple. People preach the gospel in their being. Those who are in love with Me and come to the Center will change the cold hearts of this world.

Set their hearts on fire with My intimate love. Pray in the prayer service for their union with Jesus. Pray over each person that they grow in their relationship with Me. Pray that they grow close in love with Me. Pray over them to love Me. This is your answer, the personal on-fire love of Jesus. This is the power. I am God. I have all the power. When I possess their souls and permeate their being, they will walk in the love of Jesus. They will preach My gospel in their very being. What a powerhouse, the love of God emitted from their very being!

The love of God cannot be contained. It is a mighty force. It is the source by which this sick world is saved. Enkindle in each heart that comes to you the love of Jesus.

I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, am alive. I, Jesus Christ, the same Jesus who died on the cross, am in your midst this day. My love is the same as the day I died for you. Preach this message and watch the suffering souls heal. I am in Communion. I, Jesus, come into your body. This is the greatest healing service for any man. I, Jesus, wait for you in the tabernacle. I am alive. I am a personal God. I am as close as your breath. I am with you, My child. Come and sit with Me. I have all the power. Pray over people to enkindle a love of Jesus in their hearts. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. Pray aloud, together. What power!

Messenger: Please listen to Him. Five years later, I ask you to listen to the message of Jesus.
