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: My dear Jesus, I want to write what I know now.

Purity of Relationship:

God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Spirit communicate perfectly. They are all pure.

The highest relationship between God and a human person is between:

God the Father and Mary,
God the Son and Mary,
God the Holy Spirit and Mary.

First, God the Father willed Mary to be the Mother of God, to be pure, spotless, Immaculate, untainted by the sin of Adam and Eve.

This indicates a most holy union between God the Father and Mary. It is election, God the Father chose Mary. She is the Mother of divine grace according to the Litany of the Blessed Virgin.

Second, there is such a relationship between God the Son and Mary in that His human Body was formed within her.

NOTE: Mary could most purely love God more than any human person because of the purity of her Immaculate Heart.

Mary could communicate more perfectly than any human person because of her Immaculate Heart.

We are tainted by the sin of Adam and Eve and our fallen human nature has a tendency to indulge in behavior that is focused on self against God's will. Mary had purity in her actions as Mother, holy in her ways, not subject to the ways of the fallen human nature. She is sinless.

There is such a connection between Mary and her Son. We see His physical dependency on Mary when He was an Infant. Realize that His Body was dependent on a human person.

The writings I have been given in Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the Mass show deeply this connection between Son and Mother.

Third, the relationship between the Holy Spirit and Mary.

Together They brought forth the Child Jesus. God brought forth His Son in His human nature in the womb of the Virgin through the power of the Holy Spirit.

There is pure communication between Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Mary most pure, the "Singular vessel", communicates most perfectly with God.

There are not any flaws in the relationship between Mary and God. Mary is full of grace. She is the Mother of divine life within us.

We see why the relationship between Jesus and Mary is the model for us to follow. God the Son, a Divine Person, communicates most perfectly with His Mother Mary, a human person with an Immaculate Heart, a spotless Virgin.

Man is pompous and arrogant to think he does not, in his sinfulness, need the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Man is not living in truth if he does not recognize the weakness of his fallen nature.

Jesus, the Son of God, gives Himself completely as a Sacrifice for fallen man and many reject Him.

The Father gives man the gift of His Son.

The Father gives us a gift in Mary.

The human race is tainted by the sin of Adam and Eve and God the Father chose a spotless Virgin to be the Mother of His Son, the Mother of the Redeemer. Mary is a gift.

That is why God the Father said this in the beginning of His message January 18, 1997:

"Mary is a gift from Me, but you are willful and abuse the gift I send you."

It is good to read this message at this time, Apostles Manual, January 18, 1997.

January 18, 1997

God the Father speaks: My Dear Children,
I am the Father. My plan is unfolding through you, My beloved priest, Fr. Carter, and Rita and the core group in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

I tell you all to read the accounts concerning Noah. Nowhere in history has God been offended as He is this day by this sinful world. You will suffer a fate for the offenses against God.

Mary appeared at Fatima to warn you, the sinful children, how they were offending God, but you did not listen. The war did not change the hearts of many evil men.

I warn you through My beloved daughter, Mary. You did not heed her warnings. Disobedience against the Mother I gave you displeases Me greatly. Mary is the Mother of all children. Mary is a gift from Me, but you are willful and abuse the gift I send you.

You do not make reparation to her Immaculate Heart; you continue to offend her. I will not tolerate the deeds of evil men any longer.

My plan will unfold. Any disobedience to these messages given by Me, My Son, or your Mother Mary will cause Me great displeasure.

I am the Father, the Almighty God, the Alpha, the Omega; you are a sinful people, a chosen race sinning against a loving God.

I am angered at your ways for they are not My ways, you have run amuck, you have offended your God, you have disobeyed your Mother and My beloved Son Who died to save you.

I will act on all who continue in such sin. The sheep will be separated from the goats; the goats will receive punishment for their deed. Heaven and earth will kiss, there will be love in all hearts, justice will prevail and My children will be children of light, children that obey as I intended from the beginning.

Oh indeed My sweet messenger, I look to the earth and see the darkness, I see the disobedience of men against their Mother. I know the deeds committed and the evil in the hearts of so many. Justice will prevail and I will wipe out the earth. Only the children of light will remain, those who have given their hearts to their Mother Mary.

Do you think I send your Mother Mary as a messenger to be disobeyed by willful children? What do you think about at night, the cat, the dog, the fish? You don't know love. You don't love God or one another. This is My command to you, to love. You are a sinful, willful race, and the devil will vanish from the hearts of the children of light for they will be under the protection of her Immaculate Heart, the other children will be wiped off the face of the earth.

Disobey My messenger, ignore your Mother, ignore the Son in these messages. Ignore My Son Who died for you.

Oh you sinful people filled with pride and disobedience, I give you the directions here to turn your hearts to love.

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

I am angered at the lack of support to spread the messages of My Son's love for all.

You worry for funds, worry more, I am God the Father, the Almighty God. You disobeyed Mary, you disobeyed Jesus, now you will disobey Me?

You must obey My directions, the directions given through My Son, Jesus for the unfolding of the Father's plan.

No longer will I wait while willful men check and deliberate and disobey.

My plan will unfold through the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

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.

You must obey. The directions are given in these messages to spread the fire of God's love across this earth, to renew the Church and the world.

Because of willful men these messages have been held in check.

I am God, the Maker of all things. You have made money your god. I want obedience, the funds will come when you obey all of the directions I have given to you.

Anyone who interferes with these messages will be removed.

These are the messages I give to the world. Fr. Carter's newsletter will teach the priests, all they need to know to be holy, loving priests.

Many priests are not loving, they are cold in their hearts. I will instruct the clergy through the newsletter.

My Son is the Chief Priest and Teacher. He has taught the world the secrets of His Heart through the writings of Fr. Carter and Rita, to go to men to check the value of these writings displeases Me.

You must have faith, you must study the entire revelations given here. You are not valuing My great gift to you.

I am the power, I am God, to the ends of the earth, I will be with you. My plan will unfold. You must think big, not on a human level. You must come to Me.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I am telling you to circulate the tape of January 13 (1997) as soon as possible. This tape must be released to the world. It is the message to go with the apparition on the building in Florida.

You must make every connection with Mary's message given December 12 (1996) and the messages given by Mary with the apparition of her on the building in Florida.

Time is very short and My patience is very thin. I will strike the earth and the evil men will scatter and there will be a reign of peace where men will love God as I intended. The evil men will be chastised for I sent your Mother to warn you and you disobeyed. I gave My Son as a sacrifice and you treated Him with indifference. I am angry at the creatures on this earth. I will lessen the chastisement if you make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Oh willful children, you disobey your Mother, you are unloving and willful and your ways are evil. You are a sinful race.

I am sending water, rain to quench your thirst, My beloved children of light; I am sending fire to burn the fields for the sinful children, they will suffer drought and will fall to the ground dead, they will know fire, they will know the wrath of God. For I speak and I am ignored.

I am using the Shepherds of Christ Movement to majorly carry out the plan begun at Fatima. Every day lost is a lost day. I give to you Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as your directions to help the plan unfold. Circulate these rosaries to all chapters and stress their importance.

The tape of January 13 (1997) is important to the world. The tape must be circulated with the apparition in Florida and the messages typed and put on the Internet with the rest of the messages I have given. The connection must be made between the apparition and the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Satan will attack you strongly, he will create division and give messages through other visionaries to get you off course. You must obey My directions given in these messages to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message.

I will weed out anyone interfering with My plan.

I will tell you when you have deviated from My plan, do not taunt My messenger, this displeases Me. Read the messages for direction and obey them.

The directions given are strong to correct a sick world. You must quit focusing on the messenger and obey Me.

I am the Father, these are My messages to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.

You think of money and miss the gift given. You are men bolted to the earth. You must obey Me. I have all the power.

I ask the Magnificat appear here.

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.

Messenger: There are generations of sin. Parents influence their children.

Now I understand more fully the statement in the Magnificat: "All generations will call me blessed".

In Mary's Immaculate Heart, we can unite in great purity to God. She is the Singular vessel of devotion,
Mystical rose,
Tower of David.

All generations must go through Mary.

At Mass tonight I wanted to beg for mercy for us, just beg for mercy from God for myself and this sinful race and all my ancestors.

I heard the words of the Magnificat about "He promised mercy to the children of Abraham". This consoled me because I am a child of Abraham and so are my children.

We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and to God for the offering of ourselves being so tainted when it could be more pure through our deep consecration to Their pure Hearts.

We are pompous (this is what our Lord called us) because we are so prideful with God.

He sends a Redeemer. God gives Himself and so many reject His gift. Consider the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. It is conceit on our part to approach His altar with our impurities and ignore the pureness of Their Hearts. The Fatima message says Jesus wants His Heart and Mary's Heart honored together.

This is the age of the two Hearts. The offering of this age will be a more pure and holy sacrifice. The First Saturday devotion should be observed.

After Communion we offer a holy prayer when we are one in Him.

I want in the Mass to purely give myself to God. Mary did this better than any human person. We must put aside the other thoughts that distract us and try to focus on offering a pure sacrifice at the Consecration, offering ourselves as purely as possible in Their Hearts.

There is a fine line between being involved in a problem and letting go in order to pray and offer sacrifice. We must trust in Him, we want purity in that offering.

It is His will I work with others. It is not His will they use me and consume my time with their spiritual sicknesses when they make no effort to cure them. They go from person to person, pulling them down, when Jesus is there to really rescue them. Only He can heal them.

Some people in the Movement will continue to drag others down. The devil works through them to get our focus off of what we must do:

  1. offering a pure sacrifice,
  2. uniting our every minute to the Sacrifice of the Mass.

God is with us, let us beg for forgiveness and purity.

  1. Pray the daily rosary.
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.
