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: Every day during Lent I request each writing begin with this prayer and it is prayed before you read every daily message.

(Originally requested in February 24, 1999 message.)

For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.
(John 3:16)

Messenger: This is the fire of His love. In the colored picture you see, see the fire coming forth from the crucified Jesus.

Messenger: This is the vision I had on December 17, 1991. Harold drew this from a description of it I gave to him.

Love Is Action From the Heart

Note: When I received this message He was full of fire. His picture was glowing and His face was beautiful. He was lifelike, His face completely different from the one in the picture.

Jesus speaks: I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am ablaze with love for all. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Come and bow low, bend your knee, for I am the Son of God. Worship Me. Adore Me. Honor Me. Preach, preach My love to all. I am afire with this love. I am on fire.

I am the Son of God. See Me with the brightest light on fire for My beloved ones. I am on fire. I am Jesus, the Son of God. My heart is a burning flame, My love abounds. From the ends of the earth shout My endless love. Do not lose minutes to preach My words here. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire. I am alive. I am lighted up for you. Look into My eyes and behold Jesus, the Son of God. You will provide a team to bring all back to this burning fire that is in My heart for love of all My beloved ones. Do not tarry for I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire this very day for the love of all My beloved ones.

I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I talk to you now. Preach My urgency. I am begging you to get this message out to all. I am begging you, My little ones. You must comply with Me now. Praise My name, worship Me, I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

By your example you teach the mightiest lessons. As you are in your heart is how you are in this world. If you busy yourself about our love affair, all works for the greater glory of God. If you spend time with Me in union, you preach the gospel in your being. If I live in your heart and you live in Me, then I am He Who operates from your very soul.

Oh, what a joy to your brothers to behold the love of Jesus being taught through your actions. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I want to operate from your very being. This is your gift to this world, to be so united in Jesus that you preach His word through your being.

Oh, so simple, you say? One thing that pleases Me is your union with Me, the ardent, longing love you give to Me. To sit and tell Me how you long to be with Me and want Me so much! I want a love affair with you. I want emotion, heartfelt emotion.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am a burning fire, a furnace of love. Come to Me with longing.

I am not a little, inactive love. I am on fire for love of My beloved ones. Preach emotion, heartfelt love. I gave My life. How much emotion is that? To lay down My life for love of you!

I am a fire of love. I want emotion. I want them to know how I long for them. How I wait, a prisoner in the tabernacle waiting for My beloved ones!

I want action, action from the heart, not to talk about the love of God and, "Oh, He loves you," but to say, " He is alive, He is on fire, He longs, He cries out to you to come and love Him"!

Preach emotion. People are thirsty from the depth of their souls for this emotion. They are begging to be fed.

My love is fire. It is alive. Talk about My love. Give them the strong emotion I feel for them. This world is numb in its feelings.This world is not alive. It is hard and cold. You must start a fire burning in their hearts. When they come to Me in Communion, their hearts are skipping beats with excitement to receive God, truly God-the one, true, magnificent God-made-man-in Jesus Christ.

How much love and emotion do you think it took the Son of God to be born a mere human on this earth? How much emotion to suffer a brutal death for love of you? This is My life: to be born a human, to die a brutal death, to resurrect into new life on the third day. Is this what the little mimicking mouths that come say, in a monotone, about the love of God?

The love of God is active. I, a prisoner, sit this very moment in all the tabernacles in this world out of ardent love for My beloved ones. I, God, sit and wait for your love. Little prayers you pray, half asleep, in a monotone-lip-service! No action from your heart! Look at Me. Look at My life. Action from the heart, the Heart of Jesus.

I want an active relationship with you. I wait for a heart ablaze with ardent love. You sit on the shoreline throwing little words at Me.

Love is embracing, love is entwined, love is vibrant and forceful, love is burning, love is longing, love is wanting, love is thinking about the other and talking about that person at all times. Love is an active force. It is on fire. I am God. The love I have for you is inexpressible in human terms.

You sit and throw words at Me. They are cold. You talk about My love and the love of God as you talk about the rain that is coming down or your dirty socks.

I am God, child. I am the Son of God and I love you. If a lover professed such love to you, would you not run to His waiting arms?

You have a soul that craves this ardent love. You were created for this purpose. Spin your silly wheels and watch them turn and get you nowhere.

I am all you seek. Nothing satisfies the hungry soul but the love of God. Spin your wheels and watch yourself go nowhere. I am He Who fits your soul like the perfect glove. You are he who searches everywhere but in the right place.

Oh, little ones, listen! Emotion! Action from your heart! Enkindle your love affair with this ardent lover. I am a furnace on fire for love of you, My beloved servant. I need your love affair with Me. My love will shine from your very being. Pray this prayer constantly for union with Me. I loved you to My death. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Ready yourself, My children, for I am strengthening you for the days ahead.

Messenger: On July 5, 1994, the first time Mary appeared to me at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, I wrote this:

The statue of the Sorrowful Mother was lit up as if she had fire around her. The light was very bright. Her whole gown was all-white, but the statue's gown is blue and pink. She was all aglow. It looked like the glow that comes off of a fire. Her face kept changing but remained totally sorrowful-the sorrow of an older woman. She was in such pain and sorrow! (It was hard to explain how she looked-extremely pained!) Her face looked as though she was in such pain that she could hardly bear it.

The vision remained like this for about ten minutes, having begun during the last Hail Mary of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary. She was holding something-it was all bright white-the brightest light ever!

Messenger: On March 5, 1995, Mary appeared, looking like she did on that July 5, 1994. She had darkened skin, it was the only two times I saw this colored skin. Her skin looked cracked and grooved. Later I was telling someone about it after Mary appeared in Florida and the person asked, "Was her skin the color of Our Lady of Guadalupe?" And I realized that it was just that color. Later I thought the cracked face was from the tears she cried. They had made grooves in her face. They were tears she cried for her children.

Mary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My heart, my children, my heart to watch my Son, but my heart, my heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(end of Mary's Message)

Messenger: From the rosary of March 5, 1998, which was held in Florida, I quote from this rosary, the last mystery, the meditations given during the mystery, "The Crucifixion":

4. Messenger: You will reign, the Lord of Hosts, from the altar. He will be adored and worshipped and loved from the tabernacles when men know that He, God, is really present in His divinity and His humanity, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.

5. Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son and I cried for the little children that would be lost forever.

6. Mary speaks: My dear, little children, I call you, shepherds, this day. For I am calling you to this mission to pray these prayers daily for the renewal of your Church and your world. Will you come to my Heart? Will you pray more and more that you will be an instrument in which God lives and dwells in your heart and operates from your heart to spread the Light into the darkened world?

7. Mary speaks: Will you help to spread this devotion to my Son, Jesus, in the Eucharist from this site in Florida? I am inviting you, if you are here tonight, to join the Shepherds of Christ Movement and to pray the prayers and to help me to circulate the letters that my Son has given to this world to help to bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart. This is my focus. This is my desire. I am the Lady Clothed with the Sun, appearing on the bank building in Florida. For you have made money your god. God is your God and you are His people.

8. Song: Come unto Me, all who are weary, and find rest for your soul, Come unto Me, all who are burdened, I will comfort thee.

And He hung there for three agonizing hours on the cross, and He looked as if He was beaten and losing, when in fact, it was the most immense victory.

9. Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son and I cried.

10. Mary speaks: My children are dropping into hell like rain. Will you please help me, my little children, to spread the consecration and the rosary to my children in this world? I am Mary, your Mother. This is March the 5th, 1998. I speak to you. This is my request for you: to help me to spread the Light to the little children of this world. Will you spread the consecration to the children on this earth?

Spouse of Lamb entry from Light of Christ Church, Clearwater, Florida, March 5, 1998.

Messenger: My dear Bridegroom,
I see now the plan of the Father and that we are all children in His holy family. This is how we must see the world. It is His, we are one, He is our Father. We would not talk about our brother, we would love him. Always love him, as a brother in the holy family of the Father. We must keep our family pure. Each family is a little family of the Father's family, we are all related as the children of Eve, but this life in the Spirit, this relationship is all in the Spirit. If we understand generations and blood lines, we should clearly understand the connections of this family living as children of God. As we read in John 1:13, "who were born not from human stock or human desire or human will, but from God Himself."

He is the Initiator. We are the ones responding to His initiative. He is the life. He is the light.

John 1:3-8
Through him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being
    except through him.
What has come into being in him was life,
life that was the light of men;
and light shines in darkness,
and darkness could not overpower it.

A man came, sent by God.
His name was John.
He came as a witness,
to bear witness to the light,
so that everyone might believe
    through him.
He was not the light,
he was to bear witness to the light.

Thus it states: The witness of John (John 1:23)

So he said, 'I am, as Isaiah prophesied:

A voice of one that cries in the desert:
Prepare a way for the Lord.
Make his paths straight!'

All division will be finished, the hills leveled, the valleys filled in for there will be one flock and one Shepherd, one family of the Father.

The Son, the Word, reveals the Father, thus: John 1:1,3 he begins,

In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.

Through him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being
    except through him.

Zachariah was struck dumb for not believing, John was the voice to prepare the way of the Lord.

I saw John the Baptist in Conyers, Georgia April 14 or 15, 1993. I had experienced the loss of my voice, I was struck speechless.

The voice that came forth was His to prepare the way for the Lord of Hosts.

His voice speaks in these teachings, the voice of the Good Shepherd in Father Carter's and my revelations.

Here is John's testimony: '...Look, there is the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.' (John 1: 29)

(end of Spouse of the Lamb entry from March 5, 1998)

Messenger: It is the fire that He gives to us. The fire of God's love.

The more we pray the prayers Jesus and Mary have asked us to pray at 6:20 p.m. to the Holy Spirit and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers and the rosary novena, the more the Holy Spirit will work in us to set our hearts on FIRE with God's love.

Jesus gives Himself in the Eucharist, Mary appears here by the crucified Jesus.


Matthew 17:5

He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and suddenly from the cloud there came a voice which said, 'This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.'

Messenger: This is the picture above the altar in China, Indiana.

Picture above the alter in China, Indiana

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross and I cried for the little ones falling into the pit of hell today.

My children, look at the vision of Lucia. This is the FIRE of His love.

Please pray as my Son and I have directed. You will be united more and more as a body and the Holy Spirit will fill your hearts with the FIRE of God's love.

I ask you to help me here, to circulate the messages from heaven, to spread all the books We give that men will know the fire of God's love.

I ask you to spread the priestly newsletter and the Mass Book and my children's rosary book.

Oh, how I am filled with grace and I appear covered in brightness to lead my children to the fire of His love.

Do you want to be in the fires of eternal hell, or live for all eternity wrapped in the fire of God's love?

I am Mary, your Mother, I love you so much.

Messenger: The corner of Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center collapsed.

Matthew 21:42

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this is the Lord's doing
and we marvel at it?

Our Lady of Holy Spirit Center

Picture of the building after the Big Boom



Jesus speaks: This is My Movement. I am the Chief Shepherd. This is My Movement to help bring My flock into oneness, to help to lead them into one fold, to help to bring about the Reign of My Sacred Heart in which men will know the FIRE of MY LOVE.

I love you. Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God

I speak here. It offends My Heart that you do not hear My voice.

My sheep hear My voice and they follow Me.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel when I am upset and you will not listen or even try to understand in love?
