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:        Oh Burning Heart oh love Divine

                                how dear you are to me, I

                                see the Host, I know you're there

                                to love and care for me.

                            Oh Divine God, help me.

                            Oh Divine God be my refuge.

                            When the road is dry and the people

                                seem to not understand oh

                                Savior hasten to my aid —

                                help me to understand even when

                                others do not

                                help me to be wise.

                                grant me the gift of wisdom

                                to know thee, my beloved

                                to love Thee —

                                to be filled by Thee —

                                Oh my Divine God help me

                                And come to my aid —

                                When I am feeling cold, warm me —

                                When I feel weary, fill me with your grace,

                                help me to comfort those who are bowed

                                    down, but protect us from the

                                    wiles of satan who wants to tear

                                    down the newly built wall —

                                Oh God be my carpenter —

                                    my all, my God, I love you so much —

                                Oh Come to me, my beloved God and

                                    come to my aid, help me to build

                                    your Kingdom and protect the

                                    children from satan's snare.

Jesus speaks:         My child to give into satan who aims to tear

                                    you apart is not the will of God —

                                    those who come and cry a bellowing

                                    cry of "poor me" and "I am violated"

                                    "you are wrong" — "you are lowly" may

                                    be the wolf in sheep's clothing —

                                    the wolf comes covered with a mask —

                                    underneath is deception to trap

                                    those who love Me.

                                Now I give you this gift —

Jesus speaks:         You are honored, by such a gift.

                                You are blessed.

                                It wounds My Heart when people come

                                    and complain, oh My beloved

                                    chosen ones — if I picked you

                                    and gave you such a gift

                                    how do you thank Me?

                                The wolf comes in sheep's clothing —

                                They come with a dark cloud to tear

                                    down the bridge —

                                And I watch and cry out to you —

                                    "Why are you so blind you do not

                                        recognize satan, coming to

                                        trip you up in the one complaining

                                        and accusing."

                                    Satan is a deceiver —

                                    Satan is a liar —

                                    Satan comes to destroy —

                                    Satan comes to hurt —

                                    Satan comes to block My work —

                                The one who serves faithfully is united

                                    to Me — they are thankful, they

                                    see the gifts —

                                    They praise their heavenly Father —

                                    They love —

                                    Their actions are motivated by the

                                        love within —

                                    The devil is a slippery snake —

                                    When he comes he leaves and the air

                                        is heavy, the energy to reach

                                        out seems stifled —

                                        he wants you to wear a chain and

                                            a ball on your ankle —


                                Look to the heavens —

                                Look to the sky above —

                                Look at the Lady appearing in her many

                                    robes of rainbow for you —

                                    Count your blessings —

                                    Oh My sick ones —

                                Satan comes and he pulls the wool

                                    over your eyes —

                                He wants to take advantage of the

                                    meek ones — he wants you tied

                                    up with a rope —

                                    he wants you to fall into a pit —

                                    block My work and moan and



                         You are blessed

                          You are given good things

                          You have been given My Movement

                               I have called you

                           You have answered to serve Me

                                Do you serve yourselves?

                           Are you looking for the family that will

                                do your dysfunctional dances and

                                game playing?

                            While one built the bridge

                                satan worked on the other to tear

                                it down

                            And you are so blind and caught up

                                in what people think and how

                                you feel, the cloud that surrounded

                                you was not a halo of light, but

                                a big rain cloud with bolts of

                                thunder and lots of negative

                                energy to accomplish little

                                to promote My Kingdom.

                            Oh I am LOVE

                            I am LIGHT

                            I am God, I love you,

                                I want you to come to Me

                            Come to the Eucharist.

                            Do not give into the evil one who wants

                                you bowed down and grumbling

                                How that offends Me, when you are

                                given so much.

                            You smile, your dedication can make the

                                difference to those who come to

                                see My Mother's image.

                            Oh you old snarly one

                                what would take the "crabs" out

                                of your cakes

                            I give you the "gravy" the good things

                                of My Heart My Divine Love

                                My special calling

                                the special grace to love Me so deeply 

                                and you return to Me like a stubborn

                                mule, unthankful, complaining

                                and self-focused

                            Return to Me as a warrior

                                as a real Shepherd of Christ


John 10: 11-15

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
  because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.

  Luke 17: 11-19

Now it happened that on the way to Jerusalem he was travelling in the borderlands of Samaria and Galilee. As he entered one of the villages, ten men suffering from a virulent skin–disease came to meet him. They stood some way off and called to him, ‘Jesus! Master! Take pity on us.’ When he saw them he said, ‘Go and show yourselves to the priests.’ Now as they were going away they were cleansed. Finding himself cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice and threw himself prostrate at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan. This led Jesus to say, ‘Were not all ten made clean? The other nine, where are they? It seems that no one has come back to give praise to God, except this foreigner.’ And he said to the man, ‘Stand up and go on your way. Your faith has saved you.’


September 19, 2003 message continues

Jesus speaks:              I AM LOVE


1 Corinthians 13: 1-13  

Though I command languages both human and angelic—if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing. And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains—if I am without love, I am nothing. Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned—if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever. 

    Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. 

    Love never comes to an end. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if tongues, they will fall silent; and if knowledge, it will be done away with. For we know only imperfectly, and we prophesy imperfectly; but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will be done away with. When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and see things as a child does, and think like a child; but now that I have become an adult, I have finished with all childish ways. Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known. 

    As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

Jesus speaks:             What of your example?

                               A man was head of a big company.

                               He was stern, angry and mean to his


                               He preached about God and then acted

                                    in this dishonorable way

                               He cried hypocrite to others

                               He told them their faults,

                               but he didn't see the 2 x 4 in

                                    his own eye


Luke 6: 39-42

He also told them a parable, ‘Can one blind person guide another? Surely both will fall into a pit? Disciple is not superior to teacher; but fully trained disciple will be like teacher. Why do you observe the splinter in your brother’s eye and never notice the great log in your own? How can you say to your brother, "Brother, let me take out that splinter in your eye," when you cannot see the great log in your own? Hypocrite! Take the log out of your own eye first, and then you will see clearly enough to take out the splinter in your brother’s eye.

Jesus speaks:         Oh you of little faith.

                           Listen to Me.

                           You have acted ungrateful to Me for all

                                I have given you.

                           Say you are sorry and make amends by

                                changing your attitude.

                           I tell you to love God, love others and love


                                when I tell you this, you spend day and

                                night thinking about yourself

                           How does this help others?


                           A man put a box on his head

                                he taped it tight around his shoulders

                                so no light would get in

                                He began stumbling around

                                He felt confined

                                His world seemed to be confined to

                                    the small area in the box.

                                At long last he sat by a tree

                                    sobbing and begging for help

                               An angel came and cut a little hole

                                    in the box by his eye

                               Light streamed in, white beautiful

                                    light and he began to see through

                                    the hole

                                    the air flowed freely and he for

                                    the first time saw the brilliance

                                    of a sunny day

                               Where before he never noticed because

                                    he had shut himself off in

                                    the cavern of his mind

                                    light streamed in and he saw

                                    anew what he had never

                                    noticed before.

                               Some people lock themselves up in

                                    self-made boxes they keep

                                    themselves in a dark hole

                                    Open up your heart

                                    Let the light pour in

                                    Make amends

                                    You are an example

                                    I am the Vine

                                    You are the branches

                                    I am light

                                    I am love

                                    I am God

                                Now Sarah saw the beautiful day

                                    the sun was shining

                                    she let herself be wrapped in

                                    My arms

                                    she was filled with My love

                                    She was a light

                                People saw her and they wanted

                                    to be with her

                                    She shined

                                    she smiled

                                    She was filled with My love.

                                Are you a light?

                                    What are you doing for Me?


1 John 1: 5-7

This is what we have heard from him and are declaring to you:
God is light,
    and there is no darkness in him at all.
If we say that we share in God’s life
while we are living in darkness,
we are lying,
    because we are not living the truth.
But if we live in light,
as he is in light,
we have a share in another’s life,
and the blood of Jesus, his Son,
cleanses us from all sin.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusYou Are the Light in the Darkness

September 18, 1993

Jesus speaks: Little child, come and be filled. It is here, with Me, that you are nourished and set free. Your love is made whole here. I give you joy in your soul. I sanctify you and you are made holy by Me. Yes, child, you are holy-I make you so. Respect yourself and the gift you are to this world. I shine from your eyes and I smile with your lips. I hug My hugs with your arms. Do you not know how I need you, so holy and pure?

Don't let Satan plant his little ugly words in your heart. He tries to bring you down. Shut him up, little one. Listen to Me proclaim your dignity and honor. See yourself beautiful, loving, smiling, being, spontaneous. Satan has no power over you. My light shines from your temple to your toes.

Do not let others affect your moods at all. No one can alter the way you are filled with My light. Your light shines in the darkness if you do not let them affect you. You must stay very fixed to Me to do this. Look at them and pray for them. Pray for all you talk to. They need your prayers. They need My grace to wake them to My love. You are My preacher of love. My love is ever abounding. It is not for a few, or some. It extends to all My children. I love every little one. I want to reach all. I want to give each My unbounded love, as they reject Me Whom they do not see. You know what they do to you they do more to Me. Pray for My little ones your life touches. This is the most important thing you can do.

Your power radiates from within or it is squelched by the devil and does not radiate at all. I create an energy in you. Stay focused in Me. You are not affected by those around you. When I died on the cross, nothing they said or did affected the way I was. My light was fixed. It shone on them who nailed Me to the cross. It shone in the darkness and many were saved who watched Me. Let your light shine for all the world to see. It is I Who am your generator. Like the houses in Medjugorje, only the houses with generators lit up the night. Others were pitch black. When the generator kicked in, the lights shone so bright in the darkness. You shine more when you are surrounded by darkness if you stay fixed in Me. I shone brightly at My death. In such brutality My light shone as the brightest light. In the night you must shine. Many are living in darkness. You do not go there.

No one need to affect your behavior. You are rooted in Me. I generate a power in you. I am God and My power is very powerful. You must ward off Satan's weak pull. Others want to draw you into their darkness. Do not go there. Shine as the brightest star, shine in the night, shine as a beacon light. You saw darkness in Medjugorje. You know this concept. When it is dark, a light shines so bright.

Many of your brothers are in darkness. You must stay fixed in Me that your light shine bright as the light on the dark night. I give you this message, My lights of the world. Many lights light up the darkness and it shows in the dark night as if there is no darkness at all. Be the light to the darkness. Shine bright with a generator that is supplied by Me. Do not let your brothers pull you in. You remain in Me and you will never thirst. You will run and not get weary. You will fly on eagles' wings and your days will be joyous in the troubled world. Alleluia. I am your power.

Psalm 27: 1, 4 ,13-14

Yahweh is my light and my salvation, 
    whom should I fear? 
Yahweh is the fortress of my life, 
    whom should I dread?

One thing I ask of Yahweh, 
    one thing I seek: 
to dwell in Yahweh’s house 
    all the days of my life, 
to enjoy the sweetness of Yahweh, 
    to seek out his temple.

This I believe: I shall see the goodness of Yahweh, 
    in the land of the living. 
Put your hope in Yahweh, be strong, let your heart be bold, 
    put your hope in Yahweh.


Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusA City on a Hill Shines to the World

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus: I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. My life is the life inside that cannot be contained. It is bursting and budding forth. My life is the real life. To possess the life of Christ within your breast! Such power! I am the city set on a hill that will stand united and shine to this world. You at this Center will be this city. You will be the true Center that places the mark on this world.

The love of Christ, abounding deep within the breasts of all, will be the power and the might. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I will operate in the hearts of all there and minister to My sick world. I am the Heart of Jesus. I am on fire with love of each and every soul. When My love is found in all the hearts there, the light of God will shine to this world!

You are the city, set on a hill, that shines to the darkened world. I will light the world with the love of Jesus that shines in the hearts of those who are fed there. My light is so bright. My power is endless. You are the light to the dark world. You contain the mighty medicine to bring My sick ones to Me. You will bring so many back to Me and My intense love, burning so brightly for all!

I am the power. I am the might. He who abides in Me will have the light of life. I give Myself to you that you will live. You will radiate My presence from your very being. My light is the brightest light. I will live in the hearts of all who come to you for their feeding. Enkindle in them the love for My most Sacred Heart. It is on fire for love of you. It cannot be contained. It will live in all hearts who come to you to be fed.

You are the key to enkindle this burning love of Jesus in the hearts of so many. Many will know Jesus through your love of Me. Read these letters every day for I am truly speaking to you here. I love each child so dearly and want to have an intimate union with that child. Teach all about the burning love of Jesus. Read My messages with your heart on fire so you can tell all of My ardent love for them.

I long to be close to them. I am a person. I am God, on fire for love of My people. Bring all to the ardent love of Jesus. Mary is by My side constantly. Where I am, she is there. She wants all to be led to My ardent, longing love. Teach all about My love. Fill them so they are overflowing in their hearts. This is the mighty medicine. It is My letter of intense, ardent love for My people.

I am truly here, little ones. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I will live strongly in the hearts of all who come to you. You will be the key. Focus on your intense love of Me. Read My letters as a cookbook for intimacy with Me. My love waits for each person and I tell you here how to be close to Me. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire for love of you. I am longing for you to come and be with Me in silence. I will give you all you need.

I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am your all. I am God, one, true and magnificent, and I come to you with ardent love in Holy Communion and in the tabernacle. I am present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. I am waiting. Our love affair waits and it depends on you. I am there and I am waiting. You keep us apart.

Tell them how I long for them and have all they need. The love of Christ will light their city. You will stand as the lighted city in darkness. My love will be that by which you light this dark world. Oh, such power, such might! The love of God will reign in the hearts of all you touch. You are My vessel to draw this world to the love of Jesus.

Read and study My letters and be taught about My ardent love. I am Jesus Christ and I am teaching you about My love on fire for all. Come and be powered by the hand of God. My love will rock the world off its rocker when it reigns in the hearts of those who come to you. I love you so! You are My beloved. I will use you to light My dark world. You will shine as candles in the darkest night and you will be the instruments I use to light their wicks. I am God and I love them so dearly!

This is My love for all. Power and might will shine forth on the land. I am the brightest light. Look into the light for the light. Look into the arms of Jesus. I will light this world through you. Alleluia. And the angels sang and the choirs of heaven were heard for the earth proclaimed the Love of Jesus. Alleluia

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Love You, Child--Know This

January 31, 1994 5:00 a.m.

Jesus: I am the Good Shepherd. I know Mine and they follow Me. I am truly there directing you. The littlest detail in your life is tended to by Me. You do not have to worry for one thing. I will take care of you. Let go and surrender to Him Whose love for you surpasses all your desires on this earth. It is in spiritual bankruptcy. You will feel a new closeness and intense love with Me.

I am Jesus, your God. I care for you like a doting mother. I never leave your side. I watch you, I wait for you, I am the most tender of hearts. Bring your cares to Me and I will tuck you into My Sacred Heart. You will be made whole in Me. My Blood I drip on you and you are cleansed by My Blood. You are engulfed in a sea of love. This is true love, come down from The Father and with the Holy Spirit. You know Mary was with you all day yesterday. She is always with Me and I am with You. She loves you so much!

Do not worry for any details. See the big picture. See your plan unfold at My hand. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Child, I have all the power. Why stand you idle with such a load? Drop your cares at the foot of My cross and rise into the sky. I am there with you. You must listen to how much I love you. I love you. I love you. I loved you to My death. I love you. See Me bloodied and bruised, with My arms outstretched in surrender for love of you.

I love you, child. Know this: I am so full of love for you. Come to Me and get your love. Do not wander a barren desert. You will not find what you are looking for. No love on this earth is even a crumb compared to My love for you and I am waiting as an ardent lover for you at every minute. You are so lucky to have God love you this way.

Focus on Me and Me alone. When your mind begins to focus on a problem, come to Me and crawl inside My heart. You have Me right by your side. Do you know this, child? Turn everything over to Me and proceed full steam ahead. Your life is as it is. Accept it from Me. Any trials you have are to make you stronger. Your life is just right to strengthen your love for Me. Nothing is happening by accident. Accept everything from the God who loves you and pray for strength. If Satan is taunting you, send him away. When your peace is starting to go, know Satan is in it. He uses those closest to you to taunt you.

Pray constantly for those who are around you and bowed down. Pray for those in restaurants and on the street. Pray for your loved ones in darkness. Your job is not to get frustrated and up tight, but to lift up the troubled one to Me. You will soar in My love. Your peace will abound and you will be made whole in My arms. You seek Me, child. Seek and you will find. Focus on Me always and never on your problems. Be engulfed in My love. I love you.

Your ardent lover, Jesus.

Messenger:        I went to Church and wrote this writing and the

                                priest spoke of light and the Mass was about the light.

                            He said about how somebody hollered at

                                their spouse, then they hollered at 

                                the children, it goes on like this —

                            So too is one who is nice and compliments

                                and tells somebody else they did

                                good — the good act we do helps

                                to spread it to others —

                            He even talked about a little flashlight.
                            "Light one little candle"

                            One little deed that is nice can be that

                                little light.

                            We don't have to do big things, just

                                little things, be little lights.

                            God has sent us so many gifts.

                            God bless us.


Isaiah 9: 1   

The people that walked in darkness 
    have seen a great light; 
on the inhabitants of a country 
    in shadow dark as death 
        light has blazed forth.


Isaiah 49: 6 

He said, ‘It is not enough for you 
    to be my servant, 
to restore the tribes of Jacob 
    and bring back the survivors of Israel; 
I shall make you a light to the nations 
so that my salvation may reach 
    the remotest parts of earth.’


Isaiah 49: 8-9 

Thus says Yahweh: 
At the time of my favour 
    I have answered you, 
on the day of salvation I have helped you. 
I have formed you and have appointed you 
to be the covenant for a people, 
to restore the land, 
to return ravaged properties, 
to say to prisoners, ‘Come out,’ 
to those who are in darkness, 
    ‘Show yourselves.’ 
Along the roadway they will graze, 
and any bare height will be their pasture.


Isaiah 60: 1-4 

Arise, shine out, 
    for your light has come, 
and the glory of Yahweh has risen on you. 
Look! though night still covers the earth 
and darkness the peoples, 
on you Yahweh is rising 
and over you his glory can be seen. 
The nations will come to your light 
and kings to your dawning brightness. 
Lift up your eyes and look around: 
all are assembling 
    and coming towards you, 
your sons coming from far away 
and your daughters 
    being carried on the hip.


Isaiah 60: 19 

No more will the sun give you daylight, 
nor moonlight shine on you, 
but Yahweh will be your everlasting light, 
your God will be your splendour.


Isaiah 62: 1

About Zion I will not be silent, 
about Jerusalem I shall not rest 
until saving justice dawns for her 
    like a bright light 
and her salvation like a blazing torch.


John 1: 1-14

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.


1 John 1: 5-10

This is what we have heard from him and are declaring to you:
God is light,
    and there is no darkness in him at all.
If we say that we share in God’s life
while we are living in darkness,
we are lying,
    because we are not living the truth.
But if we live in light,
as he is in light,
we have a share in another’s life,
and the blood of Jesus, his Son,
cleanses us from all sin.

If we say, ‘We have no sin,’
we are deceiving ourselves,
and truth has no place in us;
if we acknowledge our sins,
he is trustworthy and upright,
so that he will forgive our sins
and will cleanse us from all evil.
If we say, ‘We have never sinned,’
we make him a liar,
and his word has no place in us.

Jesus speaks:         There is so much unforgiveness in the world.

                                 People remember, sometimes, little details of

                                    certain things that offended them and won't

                                    let go.

Messenger:         The priest said to think of some nice thing

                                    we can do to bring the light into

                                    their lives.

                                God is light and in Him there is no darkness.

Jesus speaks:         See the little brides come to me for their

                                   First Communion. I am the bridegroom

                                   of your soul.

                                   Children need to be told at that

                                   First Holy Communion, how much

                                   I long for them and want them to

                                   come to Me.

                                I want My people to come to Me in the

                                   Holy Eucharist. Go to the Church

                                   and do all is necessary for this.

                                   I long for you, I love you so much.   


                                Lack of Forgiveness is a big block

                                    to growth in the Spiritual Life.

                                The devil is a prowling lion looking

                                    for one to devour.
