Ruth Ann stopped receiving Messages to share from the Blessed Virgin Mary on January 25, 1995. On February 23, 1995, Jesus also stopped giving Messages to share. Since that time both Jesus and Mary have requested that we begin to reread the Messages already given and to reflect on them. But most of all, that we begin to live the Messages that have been given.

Message of January 31, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus, there is so much on my mind.  Would You please speak and clarify some things?

Jesus: Yes, little one.

Ruth Ann:  It seems everything is happening so fast, Lord.

Jesus:  Child, you must realize that God has a plan, and when the time is right all things will fall into place.  There is so much that is to happen before the big picture is revealed to you that it is time for these things to take place.  My little one, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I begin to have doubts.  A statue in our backyard, a life-size statue?  At the time it seemed such a blessing.

Jesus:  Little one, it is.  Remember, this is for all who come here.  My Mother has been instrumental in bringing you and all these children who come here for special graces and prayer, and She must be acknow-ledged.  It is as your talk was titled, 'To Jesus through Mary'.  That, little one, was not of your doing, and neither is the statue, the prayer group, or all of the people whose life you touch.  It is My doing.  It is the doing of My Mother.  She is being allowed to call Her children together as a mother hen would do to all her baby chicks in danger.  She is calling them and putting them under Her wings.  In that situation, however, it is Her protective mantle.  Those who listen are special.  Those who continue to ignore Her will be called until it is too late.  Little one, you are being used by God.  This is truly a blessing.  Yes, in this day and age it is a mixed blessing.  Those who have answered the call will understand the statue, the prayer group, and all that goes with it, but those who continue to let the call fall on deaf ears will feel it is not of Me or My Mother.  Little one, this is part of the cross.  You have said 'yes', little one.  Those who say 'yes' have much to suffer here on earth, but you will continue to be reinforced by many graces and miracles for you and your family, so you will always know this is of Me, your Jesus.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Jesus.

Jesus:  Do you not know that My Mother and I know this is difficult for you and your family?  Little one, We have suffered much for all of Our children.  You are not being asked to do something We have not done so Ourselves.  You have begun the suffering, and you will not be left without the love and graces due this trial.  Continue to trust, little one, it will all be done for you.  All you need do is say 'yes', trust, and believe.  My Mother has told you, it is time.  You did not understand these words.  Now you do, do you not?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, I thought She meant it was time to quit work, since I was in the hospital when I was told this.

Jesus:  This too, is about to happen, little one.  I cannot work through you if you are busy with the things of the world.  I must have access to you when there is a need.  If you continue to be busy with things of the world, you will not have time for Me.  I must use you to call others to My heavenly kingdom, which brings us to the point of what we are discussing.  Your reward will be great in Heaven, but there is much to suffer before the reward.  Graces will be abundant child, so you will be adequately attended to.  I will be here for you, as will My Mother, so be not afraid.  You and your family will be provided for on the earth.

Ruth Ann:  I know that in my heart, Lord.  I guess I just needed to hear You say it all again.  I need the reassurance that can only come from You.

Jesus:  Little one, don't you think I know that?  I am your Jesus. I know your heart.  Now it is time for you to go about your day.  My blessings to you and your children.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Jesus, for being here for me.

Jesus:  I am always here for you and all My children.

 

Message of May 31, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus, would You speak with me?

Jesus:  Child, I am here.

Ruth Ann:  Is there anything in particular You would like to speak to me about?  I am feeling like You wish to speak to me.

Jesus:  Little one, you are correct.  You were feeling sad because there were problems and misunder-standings among those who are your friends and those who have professed to be your friends.  Little one, remember this; there were those who professed to be My friends in the days of My ministering to God's chosen ones, and they crucified Me.  You feel this is very strong language for Me to use, little one, but it is truth.  Those who do much will suffer much.  Yours will be a heavy cross child, I will send help and have sent help to carry that cross.  Those who are your true friends will continue on and help you carry your cross.  Those who are doing My will in helping you, will receive great rewards in Heaven.  Those who choose to harm and hurt you have a free will, child.  If one chooses to silently walk away and says to God, "This is not what I wish to do," that is their free will.  Not all will be supportive of you or what you are doing.  Neither were all those around Me supportive of Me and what I was doing.

Little one, when one follows in My footsteps, the path is narrow, rocky, and extremely difficult, but the rewards are a hundredfold.  Woe unto those who would hurt one of Mine, the least of My little ones.  Yes child, I am a loving God, but I am also a just God.  So you are not to be concerned about those who would do you harm.  Pray for all God's children.  Do not be distracted by the tactic of the evil one.  Keep focused on your Jesus and the will of My Father in Heaven, and God will do the rest, little one.  I have many little ones all over the earth who are helping Me.  There will be persecutions suffered because of My name, but know all who love Me and do My Father's will, will not be abandoned.  There will be people brought into your life that you would never expect to help you in your journey to the cross of Calvary.  Love them.  They are your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.  They are true friends, and will help you on this long and difficult journey.  So too, love your enemies and those who would do you harm.  They are in need of prayer.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Jesus, for Your words of encouragement.  It helps me to realize that all that is happening, is all part of the plan, even the bad.

Jesus:  Little one, where there is good, there will always be evil.  That is the way of the world.  I wish it were not so, but it is such.  I also wish I could say to you, "Little one, you will not have to suffer," but that too, is not as it will be.  No, the rewards will be great, as I have said to you before.  The end will justify the means.  You do not truly understand these words.  It means, little one, that all you will suffer will bring many, many souls to God.  What greater gift to give to My Father than souls delivered from the grasp of Satan himself?  Souls given back to God even more beautiful than before because of the suffering of one of His chosen ones.  Does that not bring peace to you, child?  Does that not help you to realize that what you are doing is worth the pangs of hurt you are beginning to experience?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Jesus.

Jesus:  Be not afraid.  God has greater things in store for you.  The greater the suffering, the greater the rewards.

Ruth Ann:  I'm really not into suffering Lord, but I do want to do the will of God.  I guess what I'm really saying is, please help me to do whatever it is You want me to do.

Jesus:  The graces will be there for you, little one.  It is as you so desire.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.  I will remember my enemies in prayer, as well as those who are of help to me.

Jesus:  Go in My peace, child.  Enjoy your day.

 

Message of February 22, 1994, from Our Lord, Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, we survived another third weekend.  Thank You for Your love, strength, and support.  I thank Your Mother also.

Jesus:  Child, speak to Her later and tell Her so.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord, I will do that.

Jesus:  Little one, when you say you have 'survived another weekend', it sounds as though you have been in a battle.  I am teasing you.  I have a sense of humor, even if it does not get much use in these days of pain and suffering.  But you have understood your role better than you realize.  You are 'in battle', little one, against the warring angels of hell.  Those of you who have taken My words seriously and are trying to do the will of God and minister to His people, are in continual battle with the evil one.  Many do not believe he exists, little one, but you have seen him and can witness to his evil ways.  That you have seen him many times, and have smelled his stench, and witnessed to his evil deeds, should be shared.
Ruth Ann:  Lord, I do, and will continue to do so.

Jesus:   It is important that My children know he is alive and doing damage in many ways all over the world.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, I know, Lord.  Those of us who know You are aware of this.

Jesus:  You are aware, little one, but you cannot possibly realize to the extent of what he has done.  He has infiltrated all walks of life.  I could go on and on naming them, but I think you understand what I am trying to say.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord, I'm afraid I do.  But I'm only one person and can not do much about all that is going on around me, or all over the world, for that matter.

Jesus:  Pray, little one.  Prayer can work miracles.  The gatherings you have on your farm through faith and trust in God are bringing about the prayer that is needed for conversion of the hearts and minds of many.  These are those of My children who are turning away from the ways of the world and seeking the face of God.  You do not think you are doing much, but each soul brought to God is one snatched from the hands of Satan and the gates of hell.  Even if you were only responsible for one soul being saved, it would be worth the sacrifices you are making.  But, My little one, you are responsible for bringing many souls back to Me, by your witnessing, prayers, sharing, and your good example.  Know I am pleased, little one.  Know My Mother is pleased.  Those who are of help to you continue to be blessed in ways they cannot imagine.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, many who are of help to me are being attacked by the evil one.

Jesus:  I know this to be so, child, but they stand firm, and as a result they earn graces and blessings by doing so.  Life is not easy for those who choose to be good.  The evil one leaves those alone who he already has.  Those he is losing, he fights hard to get back.  Faith and trust in God prevents My little ones from losing hope.  The evil one cannot and will not win.  This he knows, but he can cause much upheaval in the lives of My children.  Do not allow him the pleasure of giving in to his evil temptations.  Keep your faith and trust in God, and he cannot detour you from My path. 

Now, I know you have a limited amount of time to spend with Me this morning, child, and I would like for you to spend some time with My Mother, so I will let you go about the rest of your day so you will have time to spend with Her.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord, and thank You again for helping our family get through another weekend.  I love You.

Jesus:  I love you, little one.  Go in My peace.

 

Message of March 29, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, please send me your peace.

Jesus:  Be not afraid little one, My peace I give to you.  You have been upset by something that was given to you by someone.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

Jesus:  Remember, child, that man sometimes means well, and yet can interfere in that which he should not.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

Jesus:  Put all in proper prospective, child.  Did you not get good news yesterday concerning someone you had prayed for who was very ill? 

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord, I did.

Jesus:  Then would it not follow that you would be attacked in a mighty way as a result?  The evil one is angry, little one.  You continue to do My will and draw others closer and closer to Me and My Mother.  You are continually witnessing to those around you by standing up and speaking out for Me and My Mother.  You have stepped out in faith, little one.  You will continue to be attacked.  The more you do for Me, the more difficult the cross, the heavier it will be to bear.  You are sensitive and have your feelings hurt easily.  This is understandable.  This too, can be offered up for others as a great sacrifice for their souls.  Any pain, any persecution suffered for My sake reaps tremendous rewards, child, so carry your burdens and be brave.  Trust in Me. Your burdens will never be too heavy, for I will always be with you as you follow My road to Calvary. 

Not many understand the cross you must bear.  If they did, they would do more.  More to help and less to upset or hinder the process that has been set in motion.  As time goes on much will be revealed to you that will help you understand better your part in God's great plan for the salvation of many souls.  I have spoken of this to you before, little one.  More is to come.  You know this in your heart but do not wish to admit to this.  This is fine.  One day at a time is how I would have you live your life.  Do not look back and do not look ahead.  Know God is in control even though you are told much more is to come in doing the will of God, you must be patient and wait for God's plan to unfold. 

You are not to know the future.  That is not part of your gift.  You are not to receive messages of doom and gloom for this is not your gift.  You cannot change the plans that God has set in motion.  You can lessen the pain and suffering through prayer, but you cannot change the future.  That is where your gift comes in, little one, in stepping out in faith and sharing all God has done in your life, you are drawing others back to their faith.  You are pulling many from the clutches of the evil one.  You are a ray of light in a world full of darkness.  You are light, love, and peace in a world that knows very little of these things.  You are a reflection of Me, little one.  This is what I expect of all My children. 

When I have said you must look for Jesus in all My children, I mean you must look for the good in that person.  I am in each one of My children.  In some it is easier to see than in others.  But I exist in all of My children in some degree.  The evil one wishes to take away all of the good and leave the world in darkness.  He continues to wreak havoc in a world that prefers evil over good.  You, child, continue to stand firm and do all that is asked of you, even though at times, all seems so futile.  Do not let the evil one discourage or bring you down, little one.  The miracles will continue, and they will continue to grow.  Your faith is deserving of such miracles. 

As an apostle of Mine, you are expected to go forth and perform many miracles.  Those of the body, mind, and soul.  Draw My children back to Me.  Those that would otherwise be lost to darkness forever, bring them to Me.  Do whatever is asked of you, little one, and I will tend to the doubters and those who would do you harm.  Come to Me all you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I feel the need for rest from everything right now, even prayer, Lord.

Jesus:  I understand your feelings, child, but you are in need of Me.  Your daily prayers sometimes need to be put aside, and you need only quiet time to rest in Me.  Read My word in the New Testament.  Take a walk with Me in the quiet of the day.  Remove the pressure of your routine and rest in Me today.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.  I needed to hear that.  I get so caught up in all I need to do, or feel I need to do. 

Jesus:  There are all kinds of prayer, little one.  Enjoy a quiet walk and all the things that God has put here for man's pleasure can also be prayer.  Now go in My peace.  It has been restored, has it not? 

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord.  Thank You for Your divine patience and comfort.

 

Message of April 20, 1994,  from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother, will You speak with me?

Our Lady:  Child, I am here for you.

Ruth Ann:  My peace was truly disturbed yesterday, and the more I tried to stay calm, the more I was attacked and disturbed.

Our Lady:  Child, do not hesitate to ask for prayer when it becomes too difficult for you to pray.

Ruth Ann:  I don't want to burden others, Mother.

Our Lady:  It is good to humble yourself before those who have had the desire to pray for you placed upon their hearts.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother, I will try to remember that.  At the time my peace is being destroyed, asking for prayer is the farthest thing from my mind. 

Mother, You do know there are those who are saying unkind things to those who come here to pray.  There are things being yelled out by those who have no clue as to what's going on here?

Our Lady:  Child, that is where you are wrong.  It is because they do know what is going on that they say hateful things to My little ones.  The evil one is angry, and he uses those who allow him to control their feelings of irritation, disgust, and even hatred.  This is directed toward those who take time to worship God, or gather in great numbers to give honor to the Mother of Jesus. 

Child, the letters you receive filled with anger and hatred, the words that will be thrown at you, are all part of the persecution.  It will continue.  As your ministry grows, you will be attacked.  As time goes on, you will realize that those things are unimportant, and are only distractions to draw you away from the focus of your ministry.  God has said, "Minister to My people."  He did not add that it would be an easy task.  It will not, and can never be easy.  You have been chosen to tend to the needs of God's little ones who are searching for their way back to the light, love, and peace in a world filled with darkness, hatred, and turmoil.  Anger and envy are commonplace in your world today.  It is seldom one can find peace anywhere.

In this special place, there is peace.  I am here, My Son is here.  God has left His mark upon you and this land.  Know that where there is good, there will also be those who wish to destroy this good.  The evil one uses those around him willing to be maneuvered and manipulated to do his bidding.  Be not afraid.  Know, My little child, where there is persecution, that good things are happening.  'You will know them by their fruits'.  Remember those words.  You are producing good fruits through doing the will of God. This is not, and will never be, an easy task.  When you take up the cross and follow My Son, you must expect the pain and suffering that goes with it.

Ruth Ann:  I'm concerned for my family, and especially my little grandchildren.

Our Lady:  All do and will understand the importance of your mission.  They know that someone must take a stand for the values that were once the central focus for all in this country.  God will supply them with graces necessary to be sustained.  Stay focused, little child.  Continue to listen and be obedient to the word of God.  You have just finished a weekend of prayer and witnessing.  The attacks are very strong because the evil one is angry.  Many souls have been touched, child.  Of that you can be sure.  Otherwise, you would be left alone.  There would be no attacks.  The devil does not bother with those he already has.  He attacks those who go against all that he stands for.  He continually lashes out in anger at those who try to do the will of God. 

He has a great disgust and hatred for you, child, but do not focus on this.  Focus on the love of My Son.  Focus on the goodness of God and all that He is allowing to happen through you and the sacrifices of your family.  God loves you.  I love you.  We are pleased with all that you are doing.  Do not be disturbed by the negative things around you that happen to disturb your peace.  Concentrate on the good things that are happening to those who come here to pray.  Concentrate on the graces, blessings, and miracles being poured out upon those God allows you to touch, not just in a physical way, but spiritually, through the messages and your giving of self to His children. 

Now, child, go in the peace of My Son, Jesus.  I have placed My protective mantle around you and those you love.  I thank you for having said 'yes'.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for Your encouraging words, Mother.

Our Lady:  Child, others too, will find peace in these words.

 

Message of May 2, 1994,
from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother, I need Your help.  This is a difficult week for me, and next week won't be much better.  I have three talks in two weeks.  You know my weaknesses.  Take them to Your Son.  I offer up all this pain, insecurity, and unworthiness for the poor souls in purgatory.  Please accept this gift from a very sad heart.

Our Lady:  Child, I am your Mother.  Your gift is accepted in the light that it was given.  This offering has come straight from your heart.  May the knowledge that it is bestowing graces upon those who are in need, give you the peace which you seek.  You are right.  God does not ask us to do those things that are easy.  My Son and I were perfect examples of that.  He has called you to make a sacrifice and do penance to bring souls back to Him.  This is part of your cross, child.  All of these things you have been called to do have been difficult for you.  Had you not done these things, think of all the lives that still would be waiting to receive that gift of faith and love of God that is so dominant in your life. 

God is your focus.  Heaven is your desire.  You have not chosen God, but He has chosen you.  Not just for Himself, but to draw others to Him through you.  Remember how important it is to be a good influence in the lives of those around you.  Through your example and your sharing of all God has done in your life, others too, have the faith to speak out and share what God has done in their life.  Sharing this farm so others who love Me and My Son have a place to gather, share, and pray, is a special blessing to those who come; not only because those who come have a common bond, but because graces and blessings are poured out in great abundance to all those who come to this special place of peace and prayer. 

You do not understand the full impact you have, and will have, in the molding and shaping of the lives of others, and their faith.  But as time goes on, it will become more and more apparent to those around you. 

Ruth Ann:  Mother, Our Lord gave me a special anointing when I was in Jerusalem, at the Chapel of the Resurrection.  He said it was to give me a resolve to go forth and witness on His behalf, no matter what was to come.  I felt the anointing and felt strengthened.  I really thought it meant that what I would be doing would become easier.

Our Lady:  Child, everyone wants an easy way out.  He did not mean it would become easier.  He only meant that no matter how difficult it becomes for you, you will have the strength needed to go forth and be His witness.  You did receive a special anointing, and it is doing exactly what the Lord intended it to do.  You are going forth with a new resolve to do His will, and the strength will be there for you.  No matter how difficult it seems to you, this will be so. 

Word is spreading, child, that you have the courage to stand up and speak out concerning your faith.  In a world that has learned to be uncomfortable in sharing their faith experiences, this is a bright light.  Your courage to share your self, faith, and farm with others gives strength to those around you.  It gives them a place to gather and give honor to Me, the Mother of God.  This pleases God in great measure. 

The angels gather on your farm, as do many of the saints, to assist you in your prayers.  As you have already been told, We are here with you and those who gather here to pray.  Many are allowed to see these graces and miracles.  Those who do not are still given special graces through the peace found here on this farm. 

I have told you that as your ministry grows, that your peace would be difficult to keep.  You are exper-iencing this.  It becomes more and more difficult to retain your peace.  The evil one continues to attack you from all sides.  Do not hesitate to ask others to pray with and for you.  Yours is a great battle, and it has only begun.

Ruth Ann:  Mother, I don't need to hear that, I need to hear positive things.

Our Lady:  These are positive things you are hearing, little one of God.  You suffer much for those around you, and still you ask for nothing for yourself.  It is always for those around you that you are continually seeking favors.

Ruth Ann:  You and Your Son have said, "You would tend to my needs," so I don't feel a need to ask for anything.  All I really need is for You to see that those who are to hear my talks, come with an open heart, so You can give them the graces they need and the Holy Spirit can pour out whatever is needed for each person there.  I always give my talks over to God so He can do whatever is needed.  All I ask is that I share those words that need to be shared, and those that don't, block them from my heart and lips.

Our Lady:  Child, that is doing the will of the Father.  You have learned much more than you realize.  Your peace has returned.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother.  Please be with me all day, and every day, to help me get through these times of sharing.  I love You and need You so much.  You're the only Mother I have now.

Our Lady:  Be not afraid, My little child.  I am here with you, and for you.  I love you, little one of God.

Ruth Ann:  I need a hug, Mother.

Our Lady:  It is done.

 

Message of May 4, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, You and Your Mother have seen me through another talk.  Continue to be with me.  I have another talk coming up this weekend.  Again, on the following weekend there will be another talk.  Please give me the graces to sustain me in these hours of need.

Jesus:  The graces are there for you, little one.  The task that has been put before you is great, but the rewards are even greater.  God has great plans for you, and He will not see those plans abandoned.  The evil one will attempt all measures of torture and torment in order to discourage you, but you continue on, no matter what.  Your 'yes' has meant 'yes', child, no matter how difficult the task that you must undertake.  Just know, little one, that hearts are being touched and conversions are taking place.  Otherwise the evil one would not try so hard to discourage you.

Ruth Ann:  I know that, Lord, but at the time, it is difficult to put all in perspective and keep my calm and God's peace.  Even with so many praying for me, the ordeal becomes overwhelming.  I will continue to be obedient to Your will.  Please continue to be patient with me, Lord.

Jesus:  Little one, that is an easy request.  You do not ask to be relieved of these trials and sufferings.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I figure if You want me to be relieved, You will do so.  In the meantime, I offer all the mental anguish for those most in need of Your mercy, and the poor souls in purgatory who have no one to pray for them.  How else can I make sacrifices?  I've given You almost everything else.

Jesus:  Little one, the great love you have for My children and for Me touches My heart deeply.  Your life will not become easier, but you continue to carve out time for Me and time for prayer, for those who need prayer.  You are carrying a heavy cross, little one, and it will become even heavier, and still you are not deterred from the will of God.  If only all of My children had this faith and trust that you continue to exemplify.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, please, I'm not perfect.  I struggle, and am continually asking others to pray for me, just as You have told me to do.  Otherwise I can't imagine how I would survive sometimes.  If I struggle with lots of prayer, how in the world would I make it without others praying for me?  That's a scary thought.

Jesus:  You will always have those who are willing to support you in prayer.  Just as I have sent others to support your farm in monetary ways so it can grow and flourish, so too, will I continue to see that there are those who will support you in prayer.

Ruth Ann:  Help us get through the third weekend, Lord.

Jesus:  My love and support are with all those who will be helping with this special weekend dedicated to the Mother of God.  She, too, will see that all goes well.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.
