1 John 2: 18-21

Fourth condition: 
to be on guard against Antichrists

Children, this is the final hour; 
you have heard 
    that the Antichrist is coming, 
and now many Antichrists 
    have already come; 
from this we know 
    that it is the final hour. 
They have gone from among us, 
but they never really belonged to us; 
if they had belonged to us, 
    they would have stayed with us. 
But this was to prove 
that not one of them belonged to us. 
But you have been anointed 
    by the Holy One, 
and have all received knowledge.
I have written to you 
not because you are ignorant of the truth, 
but because you are well aware of it, 
and because no lie 
    can come from the truth. 


Psalm 96: 1-2,11-13

Sing a new song to Yahweh! 
Sing to Yahweh, all the earth! 
Sing to Yahweh, bless his name! 

Proclaim his salvation day after day,

Let the heavens rejoice and earth be glad! 
Let the sea thunder, and all it holds! 
Let the countryside exult, and all that is in it, 
and all the trees of the forest cry out for joy, 

at Yahweh’s approach, for he is coming, 
coming to judge the earth; 
he will judge the world with saving justice, 
and the nations with constancy.


John 1: 1-18


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

The Word was the real light
that gives light to everyone;
he was coming into the world.
He was in the world
that had come into being through him,
and the world did not recognise him.
He came to his own
and his own people did not accept him.

But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believed in his name
who were born not from human stock
or human desire
or human will
but from God himself.
The Word became flesh,
he lived among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
   as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.

John witnesses to him. He proclaims:
‘This is the one of whom I said:
He who comes after me
has passed ahead of me
because he existed before me.’

Indeed, from his fullness
    we have, all of us, received—
one gift replacing another,
for the Law was given through Moses,
grace and truth have come
   through Jesus Christ.
No one has ever seen God;
it is the only Son,
   who is close to the Father’s heart,
who has made him known.


April 25, 2003 message continues

Jesus speaks:     My dear people

                                Meditate on the Mysteries of Light.




Mysteries of Light



               Baptism of Jesus

               1. 1 John 5: 5-6

Who can overcome the world
but the one who believes
    that Jesus is the Son of God?
He it is who came by water and blood,...

               2. Mark 9: 6

He did not know what to say; they were so frightened.

               3. Messenger:  Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan.

               4. Mark 1: 7-8

In the course of his preaching he said, ‘After me is coming someone who is more powerful than me, and I am not fit to kneel down and undo the strap of his sandals. I have baptised you with water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.’

               5. Messenger:  When Jesus began His ministry he was about
                                                30 years old.

               Kingdom of God

               2.   Messenger:  Jesus told the apostles to come after Him
                                                and He would make them fishers of men.

                  3.   Messenger:  We serve Jesus trying to lead people to the
                                                Kingdom of God.

                  4.   Messenger:  We are like fishermen.

               5.   Messenger:  The net may never break, we cannot get
                                                too many fish.

               6.   Messenger:  Jesus picked fishermen, simple men for
                                                His apostles.

               7.  Mark 16: 16

Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.

               8.  Mark 16: 19

    And so the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven; there at the right hand of God he took his place,

               9.  Mark 16: 20

while they, going out, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it.

             10.  Luke 10: 1-2

After this the Lord appointed seventy–two others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself would be visiting. And he said to them, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send labourers to do his harvesting.







               1.  Matthew 17: 1-2

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light.

               2.   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.’

    in the image of God he created him, 
    male and female he created them.

                                                said he received from Jesus.


Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.



               7.  Messenger:  The video of January 5, 2003 is awesome.
                                                Here is the hard copy.


January 5, 2003 

Feast of the Epiphany

Nursing Home Video
Clearwater ,

Messenger: I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
Today is
January the 5th, 2003 , it’s the Feast of the Epiphany and today we’re making a nursing home video for Mary image’s site. She is very beautiful on the window and it’s like every nursing home video looks a little bit different in a way that we’ve never seen her before. These videos are available to you and you can take them to the nursing homes or you can just use them for your own personal use to show others how Mary looks on the building or to turn down the sound and pray the rosary with the beautiful picture that you see. Also you can click into the internet and see Mary live at any moment and you check this at our website.  

So today I want to start with a nursing home video in the way that we always start the nursing home video which is a Song from Jesus.   

Song: Song from Jesus  

Messenger:  Our Blessed Mother and Our Lord want me to sing this song.  

Song: Ave Maria  

Mary speaks:  My beloved nursing home ones,  
And I call you children for you are my children and I am your Mother Mary. Oh my beloved people of the earth, oh my beloved elderly, I ask you to offer your days every day
whatever it is that you do that day in trying to do God’s will offer it as a sacrifice and an offering to God in union with the Mass to help to bring down grace for the souls of this earth. Your life is so important. There are so many today that are sinning and in need of healing grace. In your suffering at the nursing home think of the souls of the earth that are crying out because of their pain and how they need to know of God’s love. Offering up your days in the nursing home and the elderly can make such a difference to the souls of this earth when you offer your days as a sacrifice united to the Mass that grace will be released for the souls that are hurting. I am the Mother of love and I want the children of this earth to know the love of my Son Jesus. I appear here on this building in Clearwater and you are given this recording as a special gift to circulate it and to show it to your friends and others so that all the earth will know that I am Mary your Mother and I appear here to reach my hurting children of this earth in need of grace. I ask you my elderly to especially offer up your lives for the souls that are hurting in this world. Your life is so important for the souls of this earth. My Son Jesus gave His life on the cross for the precious souls and He has asked me today to ask you to offer up the little things that you do everyday in trying to do God’s will in union with the Mass that grace will be released for the souls of this earth. I am Mary your Mother. My children are hurting and many are dropping into hell like rain. My children will you help me? Will you hear the plea of my Son Jesus? For He wants them to know that He loves them so dearly and He wants them to love Him in return.  

The prayer has been given to you. It is on a card and it is a very small prayer. Say it every day and throughout the day to remind yourself how important your life is when you offer it up in trying to do God’s will for the souls of this earth. I am Mary your Mother. Will you hear my cry to you today? Will you circulate these videos that my children of the earth will know that I am Mary and I appear here? These videos are not only for the nursing homes. They are for all the souls of the earth that they will be able to see me.  

Messenger:  Mary has asked that her image be visible as much as possible to the souls. And we have a camera on the image at every moment that is live that people all over the world can click into at this very moment and see this beautiful image as it appears right now at this moment. If somebody walks up there, somebody in Hong Kong can see you walking under the crucifix. We are on the internet and there is a radio all the time that is delivering messages such as these. Please tell your friends about this. Please circulate the videos that people will use the videos. They can turn down the volume and pray with the picture or go to the internet and see the picture and pray.  

Mary speaks:  I am Mary your Mother. This is a gift that God the Father has given to this earth. I have appeared on this building every day for over 6 years. I ask you to help circulate the pictures of this image that people will know that I am speaking to them, that my Son Jesus is calling out to the world to obey the commandments.  

My children God loves you. This is the love your heart craves. Your time is so short on this earth. Please hear the words that I speak to you today and see Our images as We appear here before you.  

Messenger:  If you look at the two bottom panes on the left we see Jesus in those panes a lot of times. I see Him now.  

And so with every video we meditate on a special rosary and today is the Epiphany and we are going to meditate on the Mysteries of Light that the Holy Father has given to us and especially the one on the Transfiguration.  

Song: The Rosary Song  

Messenger: And so we just say a few prayers of the rosary. We don’t say the whole rosary.  

Our Father  

Messenger:  And I am going to read a little bit of Matthew Chapter 17: 1-2  

1.     Matthew 17: 1-2  

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light.   

2.     Matthew 17: 3-4  

And suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Lord,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; if you want me to, I will make three shelters here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’  

3.     Matthew 17: 5-8  

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.’ When they heard this, the disciples fell on their faces, overcome with fear. But Jesus came up and touched them, saying, ‘Stand up, do not be afraid.’ And when they raised their eyes they saw no one but Jesus.  

4.     Messenger:  And I remember going to Holy Cross-Immaculata. It was at the very beginning of the year of January 1996 and Mary appeared here at the end of 1996 in December. And I went to Holy Cross-Immaculata and there was so much snow and it was so thick I thought I couldn’t get in and I wanted to get in to be with Jesus in front of the tabernacle because He is truly present in the Eucharist. And it was a real struggle and I finally made my way up to the door and I opened the door and I went in and there was Jesus and He appeared to me transfigured before my eyes. And He did it 4 times in the beginning of January of 96.  

Then when we opened the rosary factory here February the 5th, of 2000, Fr. Carter was here and he consecrated the rosary factory. And I came down here and there was a TV camera man that was filming me and Jesus appeared in the Sacred Heart statue and He was so bright and covered with light and I kept saying to the camera man, “Oh look at Jesus don’t look at me.”  

I have heard the Father speak the words “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” And whenever I hear them spoken I want to cry. God the Father loves us so much He sent His Son Jesus into this world. It is such a gift that God gives to us. GodFather, Son and Holy Spirit love us so much and They want us to love Them most intimately.  

5.     Messenger:  I hope that you get the cards that Our Lord has asked us to pass out. There are twothe one card says this. If you just say this every day it just makes such a difference and think about giving your life because your lives are so very, very important for the souls. “God I give you my life in union with the Mass as an offering for the souls, the Church and the priest. Help us.” Say it after Mass, say it slow “God I give you my life in union with the Mass as an offering for the souls, the Church and the priest. Help us.” And the other card is a short consecration to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary that is so important and helps us to be holy. “I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.” Can you say this? “I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.”  

And Our Lord likes me to play this song in every nursing home video and likes you to sing it through the day because Mary likes it a lot. It’s wonderful to honor Mary as our Immaculate Mother. Mary is truly a gift given to us. She is a spotless virgin. She, Mary conceived without sin. Oh God thank You for the gift of our heavenly Mother. And if you know this song – sing it. For sure join in on the refrain. I’ll sing it twice, it’s – Ave, Ave, Ave Maria; Ave, Ave, Ave Maria.  

Song: Immaculate Mary  

Messenger:  And there was one song that Our Lord wanted me to play and for you to sing. So if you could sing with this would be great.  

Song: America , the Beautiful  

(My pages are blowing away.)

Messenger:  I have the tremendous help of a tremendous doctor. Thank you. Jesus heals the sick and she helps heal the children with Jesus’ help. And so we end, I going to cry, with the Song from Jesus.  

Song: Song from Jesus  

Jesus speaks:  This is My message to you My beloved Nursing Home ones that I love you. This is the song that I give to you today that you know that I am with you at every moment, that you are not afraid. I am Jesus the Son of God.  

Song: Song from Jesus

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Am A Personal God 

October 21, 1993

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Talk to Me the same everywhere. I am there, wherever you are. I am your closest friend. I am by your side. Turn to Me all day, every minute. Talk to Me when you are alone at home. Realize I am present to talk to you just as in church. I go with you everywhere you go and I am by your side. I want you to be present to Me, to talk to Me, to feel Me as physically with you. You never go alone. You carry Me in your heart. You are My temple. I dwell within you. Profess your love to Me, the Father and the Holy Spirit. Profess your love to Us often. Talk to Us. Ask for guidance. Pray to Mary, your Mother. She is always ready to help you if you pray to her. You need these helps in this world. Don't ever feel alone or frightened. You have a team with you, a team who have all the power. You can't lose ever if you call on the Power. You can have peace and joy in your heart at all times when you realize you are never alone. You have a team to help you who love you! Feel like a well loved child who is surrounded by caring adults. They do not worry. They are in heaven. They just operate and never fear or worry for their needs. You are cared for and surrounded by God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit and the Blessed Mother. You do not worry or fear. We are with you all day. You are surrounded by a sea of love!

Acts 2: 14, 22-32

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven and addressed them in a loud voice: 

    ‘Men of Judaea, and all you who live in Jerusalem, make no mistake about this, but listen carefully to what I say.

    ‘Men of Israel, listen to what I am going to say: Jesus the Nazarene was a man commended to you by God by the miracles and portents and signs that God worked through him when he was among you, as you know. This man, who was put into your power by the deliberate intention and foreknowledge of God, you took and had crucified and killed by men outside the Law. But God raised him to life, freeing him from the pangs of Hades; for it was impossible for him to be held in its power since, as David says of him: 

    I kept the Lord before my sight always, 
    for with him at my right hand 
        nothing can shake me. 
    So my heart rejoiced 
    my tongue delighted; 
    my body, too, will rest secure, 
    for you will not abandon me to Hades 
    or allow your holy one to see corruption. 
    You have taught me the way of life, 
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.

    ‘Brothers, no one can deny that the patriarch David himself is dead and buried: his tomb is still with us. But since he was a prophet, and knew that God had sworn him an oath to make one of his descendants succeed him on the throne, he spoke with foreknowledge about the resurrection of the Christ: he is the one who was not abandoned to Hades, and whose body did not see corruption. God raised this man Jesus to life, and of that we are all witnesses.


Matthew 28: 8-15

Filled with awe and great joy the women came quickly away from the tomb and ran to tell his disciples.

Appearance to the women

And suddenly, coming to meet them, was Jesus. ‘Greetings,’ he said. And the women came up to him and, clasping his feet, they did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers that they must leave for Galilee; there they will see me.’

Precautions taken by the leaders of the people

Now while they were on their way, some of the guards went off into the city to tell the chief priests all that had happened. These held a meeting with the elders and, after some discussion, handed a considerable sum of money to the soldiers with these instructions, ‘This is what you must say, "His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep." And should the governor come to hear of this, we undertake to put things right with him ourselves and to see that you do not get into trouble.’ So they took the money and carried out their instructions, and to this day that is the story among the Jews.
