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: Love is the key.

We must learn to relate in more perfected ways of loving.

People cover up their imperfections because they want the world to think they are perfect.

We are imperfect, we are the children of Eve.

We were put here to love, to live with one another in love.

If people come to a community and they are not willing to love, if they think they will remain the same, then the community will not work.

Every imperfection must be recognized so that we can work on more perfected ways of loving.

The Father has a plan. It is that we live as brothers and sisters, living to serve our God, obeying the will of the Father and helping one another in love.

Because of the selfish ways of many, dysfunctional ways of relating have been passed down from previous ages.

Our way is to see ourselves operating as His family, loving one another. Our focus cannot be only that of getting the job done and making it work, we must be in loving harmony with one another. We will see success if the goal in all of our hearts is love and service of God. Our purpose is to love God and our brothers as ourselves.

Because evil exists, we must constantly deal with it. Our overall desire of loving is clouded by those who operate imperfectly and wish us to do things for them that are not the Father's will. They want their selfish desires met. The question becomes this: what is the will of the Father for me?


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.'


Matthew 12:50

'Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.'


Matthew 5:43-48

'You have heard how it was said, You will love your neighbour and hate your enemy. But I say this to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you; so that you may be children of your Father in heaven, for he causes his sun to rise on the bad as well as the good, and sends down rain to fall on the upright and the wicked alike. For if you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Do not even the tax collectors do as much? And if you save your greetings for your brothers, are you doing anything exceptional? Do not even the gentiles do as much? You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.'


Matthew 5:48

'You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.'


Messenger: And so we have it, our desire in life is to do the will of the Father, to strive for perfection, not to hide our faults even from ourselves and those around us acting as if we are perfect. We are not perfect, only God is perfect; Mary is the only human person that is sinless. We have a fallen human nature.

What is the greatest Commandment?


Matthew 22:36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'


Messenger: I speak this word to you. The question must be how can I love God and love others as He desires?

Jesus speaks: You are My family in the Shepherds of Christ. If you are unwilling to change in your ways, you will not be able to do as I wish. If you hide imperfections in your own lives from yourselves, you will not be able to operate as I wish.

Oneness will be achieved more and more as men die to their imperfect ways of loving. Loving is living according to the Father's Plan, living according to His will, living to serve your God with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being.

Come out of your tombs. I spoke to you on Ascension Thursday of 1998. You must die to your imperfections. You must enter the tomb once and for all and decide that you will come out in the greatest light. Purity is found in dwelling in the Heart of the all-pure Woman. The Holy Spirit works in Mary's pure Heart to sanctify you. Pray this prayer, "Oh Lady of Light, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit, we wish to be made holy." You have a lifetime to grow to be more perfect, more likened to your heavenly Father.

But what happens? Men go to men to learn to love and depend only on other men and their teachings about love. They do not learn properly God's ways of love. God is love! Go to God to learn to love. Come and dwell in the Heart of the all-perfect God, the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


Revelation 3:12

Anyone who proves victorious I will make into a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and it will stay there for ever; I will inscribe on it the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which is coming down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well.


(Some translations say that the victors will be in the temple of God.)

Jesus speaks: From the Litany of the Sacred Heart:

Heart of Jesus, sacred temple of God,

Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven,

My Heart is the sacred temple of God. You will come and dwell there and never leave.

These are the victors, the ones who come forth from the blistering tomb having died to their imperfect selfish ways. Who are the victors? The victors are the ones who dwell in my all-perfect Heart. They have found shelter from the burning flames of hatred and anger and envy and willfulness. They have put aside the seeds of willful control in their own lives opposed to God's will. They have washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb. They have learned to die to their selfish ways passed down from previous generations. They know that love is found in living in the all-holy, pure and sinless Heart of My Mother and the all-holy, pure divine Heart of your God.

I am God, I give you My temple, it is My Sacred Heart. You will dwell not in an imperfect, earthly dwelling, but in My most Sacred, Eucharistic Heart.

Jesus speaks: "Come out of your tombs." "Come out I call to you."

Freedom is found in living according to the Father's will.

Jesus speaks: Many of the ways you were taught to love came from men. I want you to listen to Me, I want to teach you more perfected ways of loving.

I want you to live by My word. I want you to love as I have showed you.

Revelation 4, please read entire chapter.

Messenger: On Pentecost 1998, I had a vision of a golden open door with the light being that of the reflective glass-type light I saw in the great vision of March 26, 1996 (Apostles Manual).

The key is putting aside the old ways we learned for relating and putting on the new ways that are likened to Him.

We have to be laid bare, in order to live as He wishes. We must follow the Master, He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

If we use our old ways as our reference, our reference is corrupt. We must see that our ways are measured against His ways, the Commandments and His word.

When you say, "I did it this way before and it isn't working with others", this is a sign one or both are not functioning according to the will of God. The problem can be caused from learned patterns of behavior that are ingrained within both parties which are opposed to His ways.

God is the reference. His way is love. The freedom is in following His will.

Things aren't necessarily to be measured by what we did in the past. The question is whether it is the right way, the way in which we operate according to God's will.

If our ways of relating and operating together are not working and I do it the same way, only more intently, and you do it the same way, only more intently, we will end up with greater disharmony and frustration. Old patterned ways of acting that lead to division with our brothers must be changed so that we are acting according to his ways.

We must look to His ways. We must measure our actions by His.

Jesus speaks: My loved ones, you must look at your past. You must ask yourself why you act certain ways. Many times a person that "flies off the handle" is plagued by other occasions in his life that come to the foreground when relating to others. Another acts as a trigger causing the person to experience unresolved issues of the past and unhealed hurts.

If you look at 1,000,000 people and say they did it this way, this doesn't necessarily make it right.

Messenger: The truth will be found in dwelling in His holy and perfect Heart, living by His word and the Commandments and being ready to change and grow out of the ways that are not likened to Him.

We were created in His image and likeness. Teachers in our lives taught us how to live. Adam and Eve sinned. Cain slew his brother. Parents have taught their children ways to love, many are really "messed up", many ways are very unloving. If we continue to act in these unloving ways, we will hurt others and ourselves.

Little babies have ideas engrained in them about life and God that are all wrong.

We are in need of healing, generational healing. The Father's family is dysfunctional.

Jesus speaks: I speak to you in the Movement. You must die to your old patterned ways of acting that are imperfect. You must put on the garment of My grace. You must beg to be clothed in it.

The victor washed in the Blood of the Lamb will wear the white robe. You should die to your selfish ways. You are IMPERFECT, you must admit it and look to improve.


Luke 2:34-35

Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, 'Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed -- and a sword will pierce your soul too -- so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.'


Jesus speaks: Look to Me for your answers. All apostles must listen to a rosary tape at least 5 minutes a day and read the priestly newsletter at least 5 minutes a day. It will be very beneficial to listen to Father Carter for 5 minutes on tape reading the priestly newsletter. This will suffice for your five minutes with the priestly newsletter. This will take your focus off of the ways the world is teaching you that are incorrect. I prefer the tapes everyday. It will help you to experience the emotion.

I love you, Jesus.

5 Years LATER MARCH 7, 1994 - MARCH 7, 1999

Jesus speaks: On March 7, 1994, I gave the following message concerning the messages I attempted to deliver at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. On March 22, 1994, the building corner collapsed. I wish you to study the message of March 22, 1994. I wish you to know that unless you hear My words you will not be able to do all I wish to lead souls to My Heart. Please help Me. You are the city set on the hill filled with the light of God. You are Mary's children of light.

Messenger: On March 22, 1994, the smoke filled the hole of the collapsed corner of that building. The dust was in our face from the fallen bricks and debris. I had sat on the chair and heard the biggest boom I ever heard. In a few moments the corner was leveled. We left the rosary chapel and looked down the end of the building wing. There we saw the sky. We ran from the building and around the front to the collapsed corner. It looked as if the bricks had been laid around the hole of the collapsed corner. The dust was in our face.

Quote from March 7, 1994 Message Blue Book II, P.148

Jesus speaks: "TIME IS SHORT. One MOMENT AND IT IS UP IN SMOKE."

"I AM SENDING OUT AN URGENT PLEA TO PUBLISH ALL THESE MESSAGES - NOW."

"These letters, include all.

WHAT DO I DO TO SHAKE YOU?"

I, IN MY MIGHT CAN ROCK YOU OFF OUR ROCKERS. I TRY TO PREPARE YOU BUT YOU ARE TOO BUSY. HOLD ONTO YOUR LAST PIECE OF DUST AND WATCH IT GO UP IN YOUR FACE.

I AM JESUS CHRIST, SON of GOD AND I WRITE TO YOU AND WHO PAYS HEED HERE? This should tell you of your attachment to worldly things. YOU WANT PROOF. You look the other way.

I AM GOD and YOU CONTAIN the MIGHTY MEDICINE for this sick world.

I am JESUS, THE SON of GOD.

DO YOU LISTEN?

Look at Me, dying on the cross. I gave My all for you. YOU ARE BLIND. YOU DO NOT LISTEN. I, God talk here to you.

Messenger: 15 DAYS LATER March 22, 1994


Jesus Warned of a "Big Boom" Hours Before Collapse

boom.jpg (66970 bytes)

"The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;"
(Psalms 118:22)

July 11, 1997

Jesus Speaks: "The Holy Spirit Center is My Mother's house. A house divided against itself will fall. I am asking immediately that you circulate the picture of the collapse of the Holy Spirit Center wing.
I speak, child to be heard.....
Any manipulation of messages that led to delaying the Reign of the Sacred Heart will be greatly punished."

The Scriptures Repeat Today
Amos 7:12-15

To Amos himself Amaziah said, 'Go away, seer, take yourself off to Judah, earn your living there, and there you can prophesy! But never again will you prophesy at Bethel, for this is a royal sanctuary, a national temple.' 'I am not a prophet,' Amos, replied to Amaziah, 'nor do I belong to a prophetic brotherhood. I am merely a herdsman and dresser of sycamore-figs. But Yaweh took me as I followed the flock, and Yaweh said to me, "Go and prophesy to my people Israel."


Collapse on March 22, 1994

The picture shows the collapse on March 22, 1994 of a wing at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, Norwood, Ohio. Jesus warned every day from Feb. 22, 1994 to March 22, 1994 there would be a big boom.

Rita Ring: I am a messenger. The messages given to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message were blocked. This is not to indicate any person is responsible for disobeying the messages. I must deliver the messages despite any disbelief.

Messenger's Notes:
   On March 22, 1994 at 10:30 a. m. Jesus told me I would be sitting on a chair, the floor would shake under my feet and I would hear the biggest boom I ever heard.
   At Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, about 14 people were praying the rosary in the Rosary Chapel at 1:00. I had tried to deliver another message I was ignored. I wanted to cry from frustration. I looked up at the ceiling and said to Jesus, "You handle this, Jesus, it is Yours. I have done all I can do to deliver Your messages to promote devotion to the Eucharist and Your love. These are Your messages, You do something." Wanting to run and leave, I started to cry. Jesus said, "Go to the chapel and pray the rosary." I went into the Rosary Chapel and they had said the Creed and a few Hail Mary's. I sat on the chair feeling so bad inside , holding back my tears, about the 9th Hail Mary or so of the first mystery I heard the biggest boom I ever heard. It lasted about three minutes, it seemed. The floor shook under my feet as I sat on my chair and I knew it was Him. For the first time after a month of my stomach being in knots I was relieved. He acted. Everyone got up and was alarmed and I felt comforted for I thought, "Thank God, now they will believe." We went out of the chapel and I looked down the hall and saw the sky. The entire end wing had fallen off. We ran from the building and outside there was a hole, in the earth surrounded by bricks that looked as if they had been laid neatly around the hole. The cloud of dust in the hole was sky high.

March 7, 1994
I remembered the message I received from Jesus March 7, 1994. This is recorded in God's Blue Book Vol. II (p. 147-149) I delivered it and my stomach was scared from the words of Jesus.
Jesus speaks: "Busy yourself for your day is at hand and you will know My might! I will shake the earth and you will listen Then you will listen, but where were you when I gave you forewarning? You are waiting for the big boom. I am calling you now to listen to Me here....Time is so short. One moment and it is up in smoke....What do I do to shake you? I, in My might can rock you off your rockers. I try to prepare you but you are too busy. Hold on to your last piece of dust and watch it go up in your face! I am Jesus Christ, Son of God and I write to you and who pays heed here? This should tell you of your attachments to worldly things. You want proof. You look the other way. I am God and you contain the mighty medicine for this sick world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Do you listen?"
* There are many more messages. Please call us for a free copy of Gods Blue Book, Vol. II

March 13, 1994 (10 days before the Big Boom) God's Blue Book, Vol II pg 158-160
Jesus speaks: "You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion, Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart. I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out child.
   Ready yourself for a big boom. No one is listening. I am crying out to you. Prepare your brothers, they are in darkness....I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of them. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I call you to this state of urgency. Move your friends by this urgent letter. There is no more time to waste. I call you all here to deliver this message personally to you. I am Jesus. I am begging each of you to spread My message. Tell them of My ardent love. In each moment you waste, souls will be lost."

August 11, 1996 This is recorded in the Apostles Manual.
Jesus speaks: "I have given permanent signs of the authenticity of these messages. Time is urgent and the messages need to be supported and circulated ....
   Over and over again I have told you what would happen if you ignore the messages. I am asking you to see that each and every person involved in the Shepherds of Christ Movement read the message of March 7, 1994 and March 13, 1994. Please discern and circulate the message of March 20, 1994. 3 l hours before the end of the building collapsed ....
   I have given three permanent signs to be used to help circulate these messages which are a main source of communication for the completion of the Fatima message. Time is urgent. I am asking again that a special gathering be held on October 13, 1996 ....
   These are permanent signs I have given to prove that I am delivering these messages."

March 20, 1994 This is recorded in the Apostles Manual
before the end of the building collapsed at the Holy Spirit Center.
Jesus speaks: "Publish these messages, I want the book published (Gods Blue Book). What happened to Volume II? I, Son of God, am talking to you and who listens?...
   I am God. I am so tired with you to publish these letters. You are going to suffer for the souls will be lost while you tarry.
   I have all the power, I am God.
I can turn the world upside down. I have all the power. I am tired to give you more messages. You are not publishing anything. You want to be safe..."

March 22, 1997 - 3 years later
This, the anniversary of the collapse of the building.
Jesus speaks: "The completion of the Fatima message was greatly blocked at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and the Falmouth Farm. Because of some willful men to try to stop the plan, many souls have suffered."

March 24, 1997
Jesus speaks: "I have given to you great signs of the authenticity of these messages and how they must be obeyed. I would like a picture card of the Holy Spirit Center and the prophesies of the big boom. Include the message of Fr. Carter that states this is Jesus' movement for the renewal of the Church and the world. Include this statement I give to you: "The Shepherds of Christ Movement is My instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. Its primary purpose is to pray for priests. It is through this movement that the Fatima message will greatly unfold.
   The picture must bring the people to the "Mary Message" tape, the Blue Books, the Rosary Books, Tell My People and the Fatima-Medjugorje Book.
   The Mass Books and the Priestly Newsletter Books should be made available and given to priests. It is necessary to hand out the Prayer Manual books with the card I have instructed you to make."

July 11, 1997
Jesus speaks: The Holy Spirit Center is My Mother's house. A house divided against itself will fall. I am asking immediately that you circulate the picture of the collapse of the Holy Spirit Center wing.
   I ask you to circulate the card about the Holy Spirit Center as soon as possible. I will reign on My throne at My Mother's house."


JESUS WARNED OF A "BIG BOOM" ON MARCH 22, 1994

Prophesy I: March 7, 1994 from God's Blue Book II, p. 146-149

Jesus speaks: Busy yourself for your day is at hand and you will know My might! I will shake the earth and you will listen. Then you will listen, but where were you when I gave you forewarning? You are waiting for the big boom. I am calling you now to listen to Me here. Time is so short. One moment and it is up in smoke. What do I do to shake you? I, in My might can rock you off your rockers. I try to prepare you but you are too busy. Hold on to your last piece of dust and watch it go up in your face! I am Jesus Christ, Son of God and I write to you and who pays heed here?

Prophesy II: March 13, 1994 from God's Blue Book, Vol. II, p. 158-160

MESSAGE FROM JESUS

March 7, 1999

Jesus speaks: Today five years later, despite the blocks, My priestly newsletter has circulated around the world in about 90 countries. Beyond its use in the United States of America, there are about 215 bishops in other countries using it in their dioceses.

I am continuing to help to bring about the completion of what My Mother began at Fatima.

I ask for the picture of the BIG BOOM to APPEAR here.

I wish all messages from the BIG BOOM brochure to be included. (Included above)

I wish prayer chapters to be begun all over the earth praying for the renewal of the Church and the world.

I wish all to help to circulate the priestly newsletter.

I am Jesus, I beg you to respond now before it is too late.

I speak here.

My Mother appeared to draw her children into the depth of My most Sacred Heart.

Mary always appears to lead her children to God.

I am the Alpha, the Omega, I am the Son of God.

This is the Father's Plan: that you are children, brothers and sisters, loving your God and being one with each other.

This is His plan for the earth: that you are one, holy, happy family living in love.

I am Jesus, Son of the LIVING GOD.

I love you so much, I DIED For YOU.

HELP ME, LISTEN TO ME.

Messenger: Jesus appeared December 5, 1996, 12 days before Mary appeared on the building in Clearwater. Mary had appeared on all the 5ths since July 5, 1994, except November 5, 1996. On December 5, 1996, Jesus appeared hanging on the cross at the point of death, His mouth moving. I could not hear anything. Later that evening in a rosary, He said He appeared like that because no one was listening. When He appeared He spoke not a word.

On August 20, 1997, He appeared in the most glorious light, transfigured before me at St. Gertrude's Church in Cincinnati. I heard the Father speak and He said:

"This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. LISTEN TO HIM."


Spouse of the Lamb

March 7, 1998 - 11th Day

My dear Spouse,

You take us to Your mountain top and show us Your light and the world slumbers and sleeps and the throng below the hill shakes the tree and the dead fruit falls, but they do not see it.

We hear the voice of the Father speak, "This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased." and we hear the voice of the Good Shepherd speak as He reveals His Father to us and His plan for the salvation of all men living according to His will.

The voice of the Good Shepherd will be heard as men listen to Jesus in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. This is what the Father said in His messages delivered in January 1997. Especially January 18, 1997, where He says, "My dear children, I am the Father. My plan is unfolding through you, My beloved priest, Father Carter, Rita, and the core group in the Shepherds of Christ."

"My Son has revealed Himself as never before in history in His tremendous love for men and you treat Our gift with indifference."

"I am talking through these messages given by My Son and Mary to tell you how to accomplish this task of carrying out My plan."


Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

I Showed You the Way--I Showed You Surrender

God's Blue Book II Cover

March 7, 1994 4:00a.m.

Jesus: You are the city set on the hill. You will shine with the intimate love of Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie.

I am Jesus and I loved My little ones to My death. Do you know even a little about what it is to give your life for someone? Do you think of yourself and ponder yourself being this selfless? People cannot even take one hour to sit with Me. The world has made you all blind. You do exactly as you want. Meditate on My sorrowful Passion. Read My meditations on the rosary. This was My life, given for you, My little loved ones. I gave My life for you and you want more? You want more proof and signs, yet you cannot even pray a few moments after Communion!

I am the Master. I taught you about selflessness and surrender. Look at My position on the cross. Yet you hold back. You want your comfort. You want to make the world your end! Oh, you give a little. You give Me what you dole out, a little here, a little there, and say, "Okay, Lord, I'm good. I pray prayers. I spend my life doing holy things, but I am in control of what and how much I give you. I am in control, Lord. Aren't you satisfied?"

I am only satisfied when you surrender your all to Me! You give Me such little bits and pieces and you pat yourself on the back and look at the sick world and say, "Well, I am pretty holy." This is not the point. You judge, you decide, you do your own will! This is you, playing the game of running your life! You give here, you keep there. I want your all. I want your time spent alone with Me in front of the tabernacle. I want you to have an ardent on-fire love affair with Me. When you love, you give. You say to your lover, "Oh, anything you ask for I will give to you." If you ask for my shirt, I will give you my cloak as well because I love you this much!"

You don't know about love. You control your relationships with Me. Then what hurts My aching heart is how you talk about the love of God. There is not love in your actions. If you came and spent your life with Me, if you freely gave sacrifices for Me, this is love!

You look to the world and you judge yourself as doing so much. Look to Me, hanging on the cross, and judge yourself by My standards. I call you to an ardent love affair with Me. I call you to love--love of God, love of one another.

You do not have love for one another because you do not love God first. Love gives its all. Love does not seek itself. Love gives freely!

I died on the cross to teach you how to love. I am the Master. If you look to the world and judge yourself, you are not learning any lessons from Me. You must look to Me to learn from Me.

Look at Me on the cross, My arms outstretched, hanging from the cross. I gave My all! I gave Myself for love of you. I held not back a little. I held not back and I, God, could have stopped it all, but I gave you freely from the bottom of My heart with greatest love for you!

This, My sweet ones, is love. I showed you the way. I showed you surrender. I am Jesus Christ and I write to you. Do you listen? Oh, you, in your busy lives, do not surrender to Me even now.

What do I do to shake My beloved ones? You are all blind and dense. Look at how attached you truly are. You do not surrender. You do your will, you do your thing. I tell you over and over again to come and pray with Me for long periods. I tell you to pray after Communion. I write about praying before the tabernacle, but you do your will. You go to the world. You ask your questions there. You look for answers from each other. You do not surrender even one hour of your time.

I come and you receive Me, the Son of God, in Holy Communion! Do you stay and sit with Me or do you do what you want? I died for you, yet you cannot let go of even little things.

I am Jesus, Son of God. If you who profess to love Me cannot give of your life to Me, how do you expect others to learn from you? You teach as you are. You teach in your actions. Your actions are selfish and centered on self. I call you to denial of self and love of God.

One person fixed to the true life of Christ can move a mountain. You follow the world and try to do it yourself.

I preach coming to Me and sitting with Me. I, God, have all the answers. No one listens. What do I do to shake My faithful ones in their comfort?

I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I want to dwell in you and operate with the power of God. I invite you to My altar. I sit and wait with all the answers and you, in your pride, tell Me, "I am too busy."

Busy yourself for your day is at hand and you will know My might! I will shake the earth and you will listen. Then you will listen, but where were you when I gave you forewarning? You are waiting for the big boom. I am calling you now to listen to Me here.

Play your safe game. Waste your time. I am God and I am talking to you. You do it your way. I sit with the answers. Every answer is given here. I want My beloved ones to read these letters. I grow so tired of your foolishness. I am God and you are busy. Die to yourself, child. I showed you the way. I lead. You must follow Me!

I am your God. You shall have no gods before Me! Do you pray to Me in silence? You want your answers given to you. You want My love given instantly as you demand. I am waiting for a love affair with you. The fire of love is enkindled. Love is time spent together. Lovers sit together for long hours and learn to know one another. Would you give so little of yourself to develop a love affair with Me? I sit, I wait. I am there at every moment in all the tabernacles of this world, and you are busy!

Time is so short. One moment and it is up in smoke.

All that remain are the things of God. You are here to know, love and serve Me. I am sending out an urgent plea to publish all these messages--now.

These letters will turn the cold hearts to love. Do you not think I have all the power? You tarry, you deliberate. I grow tired. I am God and no one listens. You want Me your way. You want Me to come your way.

I sweetly tell you, in My gentle love letters, that I come, Jesus, the Son of God, gently in Communion. You are numb and blind. You want Me to roll drums and blare trumpets, but I come in the quiet moments. I roll no drums, I blare no trumpets. I come and you miss My calls!

What do I do to shake you? I, in all My might, can rock you off your rockers. I try to prepare you but you are too busy. Hold on to your last piece of dust and watch it go up in your face!

I am Jesus Christ, Son of God and I write to you and who pays heed here? This should tell you of your attachment to worldly things. You want proof. You look the other way. I am God and you contain the mighty medicine for this sick world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Do you listen? Look at Me, dying on the cross. I gave My all for you. Do you not think I would send a mighty medicine this day for you? You are so blind. You do not listen.

I, God, talk here to you this very day.
