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 February 6, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus.

Jesus:  Yes, little one.

Ruth Ann:  I feel like I have too much on my mind, but I wish to speak with You.

Jesus:  I am here.

Ruth Ann:  Just talk to me, and I will listen.  Alright, Lord?

Jesus:  Yes, I will do so.  Your mind is not busy, it is cluttered, little one.  You must learn what to keep, and what is trash or garbage to be discarded.

Ruth Ann:  I know this to be true, Lord.  It was the same way with confession last night.  I felt I was so full of sin that I really didn't know where to start, so I just ended up saying that my biggest sin was lack of faith and trust in God, and asked for Your forgiveness for all my faults and sins, but now I feel I should have taken time to name each sin.

Jesus:  Little one, it is best to convict yourself in front of God, humble yourself, but it is true sometimes there is not enough time to do so.  In that case, make a general confession and ask for absolution, but at another time, when there is time, decide, and discuss these faults and concerns with your priest.  He will help you put these sins in proper perspective.  Sometimes it is just clutter and excess baggage, and not true sins.  As you pray and become closer and closer to Me, you will discover that everything you do and say will have special consequences.  You will become more and more sensitive to those things that cause Me pain.

Ruth Ann:  I am already feeling that, Lord.

Jesus:  Man has become so desensitized to sin, because there is so much around him, that he is unaware of the many things that he does do that pierces My heart.

Ruth Ann:  When You say 'man', and 'he', I feel you are talking to me.

Jesus:  I am talking to all My children.

Ruth Ann:  There are so many things going on that I'm not certain about, such as rosary congresses, etc.  Are we to become involved in all these things?

Jesus:  Little one, you have your mission put before you.  You will have your talks to give, and you are to house the Medjugorje prayer group, and pray with those who ask for prayer.  If I wish you to do more, I will tell you.

Ruth Ann:  I felt a need to go to a wedding, and intended to go, but Jim talked me out of it.

Jesus:  Little one, you have a full-time job, My work, and a family.  You cannot burn a candle at both ends.

Ruth Ann:  But it is something I wanted to do.

Jesus:  Time would have been made for this, but other things would not have been done.  You must learn, little one, to prioritize the things in your life.

Ruth Ann:  Will You address those things You spoke of yesterday, You and Your Mother?
 
Jesus:  You are concerned because we have not spoken of the manifestation of the special miracle by My Mother.

Ruth Ann:  Yes.

Jesus:  It will come about, child.  Are you not already seeing miracles that could only come from God?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, I am.

Jesus:  Do not doubt for one minute the prophecies that have been given to you by My Mother and by Me.  All will come to pass; the manifestations, the visit from Me, all those things you have been told of at an earlier time will happen.  It must be in God's time, and you must be ready.  You cannot see the big picture, little one. If you could, you would have no doubts.  That is where faith and trust in your God must come into play.

Ruth Ann:  And what about my children?

Jesus:  God will watch over your children.  Your Mother's heart aches for your children.  You want all to be well and have all their wants and needs met.  That is true of all good mothers.  My Mother is the perfect example of that.  She wants all of Her children to be happy, and be at peace, and how it hurts Her to see them at war and in such turmoil.   She does not give up, little one.  She continues to pray and trust in God to tend to all their needs.  Faith and trust, little one, pray daily for these two graces.  God will give them out in abundance, you know.  This is a time of grace and mercy, and both can be had for asking.

Little one, I know you begin to feel overwhelmed by what is happening in your life, but you must learn to live one day at a time, and give all to God.  You may not realize all that is going on is for the coming of the Son of God, but it is so.  You are only a tiny pebble dropped into a pond.  You are only an instrument.  I do all the work.  You have been dropped into the pond.  I am the ripple that will continue to work until the end of the pond, or, the end of time.  There are many such pebbles, and all could do nothing without Me.   That should help you put all you do in proper perspective.  It is important, but only in the sense that it is calling all of My children to Me.  Listen, be obedient, and pray, I will do the rest.  Have I not taken care of your needs so far?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, this is true.

Jesus:  Then do not let the darkness muddle your mind or fill you with excess baggage.  I am light and love, I am peace.  Walk in My light and do My will.  My Mother and I will tend to the rest.

Ruth Ann:  Yes Jesus, thank You for helping me regain my peace.

Jesus:  Thank you for listening, little one.

 

Message of Sept. 15, 1993, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother Mary.

Our Lady:  Yes, child.

Ruth Ann:  I thank You for the message.  It was very beautiful.  You continue to bless us with encouraging words, even though all around us there is so much sin and suffering, so many terrible things happening in the world.

Our Lady:  Child, you are not to focus on the bad.  You are to pray for those things that only God can change.  Keep your mind and heart on the One Who is light, love, and peace.  Pray for His light to permeate the peace in the darkness of this world.  God is the only One Who can change a world that has become bogged down in so much muck and filth.  Man continues to flounder about, unable to pick himself up and out of this darkness of sin. 

God will continue to send lifelines to each of His children.  These lifelines will be in the form of special graces and blessings of all kinds.  There are chosen ones all over the world receiving messages, visions, apparitions, and other visible signs that God is alive.  He is ministering through His children by sending His Mother among His children to grab their hands and pull them out of this darkness.  He is allowing Me to call out to My children in so many ways, and many are responding to this call.  Many are not.  Those of you who are chosen to spread the word of God and minister to His people by prayer and sharing of His blessings He has given to you, are a special blessing to Me and My Son.  You have taken up the cross, and have begun to follow My Jesus on this difficult road to Calvary.  Those who do the will of God have much work to be done.  Be not afraid.  The graces will be there to sustain you.

Ruth Ann:  Is the lady I met today of You and Your Son?  I hate to ask, but she certainly seemed genuine.

Our Lady:  Yes child, she is of Me and My Son.  She too, has a special mission.  She too, must be patient and wait for God's plan to unfold.  Her mission and your mission are not the same.  The end results, however, are.  The purpose for you, your gifts, are to bring souls to God.  The sharing of these gifts was to give strength and encouragement to each other.  This too, was a special blessing from your Jesus.  Know in His love and tenderness He wishes to give peace and solace to all of His children chosen to perform a special task or mission here on the earth.  The fact that you were brought together brought much joy to you both.  All of God's children need to hear things that will encourage them in the work put before them.  Even though your gifts are different, there is a similarity and clarity to the call.  You are both doing the will of God, not knowing in what direction it will lead.  This is true faith, child.  Faith is going forward and doing what is asked, without knowing exactly what God has in store.  Such faith is a beauty to behold.  God's chosen ones have this faith. 

Remember, God has said He has chosen you, and He will do the molding.  These things are coming about gradually child, through prayer, sharing, and spiritual readings.  You will continue to grow and change through these very special graces granted to you by God.  You are an instrument being shaped, molded, and polished by love and guidance given to you through your Creator.  Thank God frequently for these graces, child.  Not many are given so many beautiful gifts as those granted to you.

Ruth Ann:  Is there anything else You wish to say, Mother?

Our Lady:  Child, I know you have a busy day ahead.  Know that My blessings and graces are with you.  Continue to minister to God's people.  The graces are there for you as you need them.

 

Message of Nov. 29, 1993 from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother Mary, it's been quite a while since I've recorded what You have spoken to me.  I really would like to speak with You.

Our Lady:  Child, I am here.

Ruth Ann:  So much has been going on.  The interview I was concerned about has taken place, and the article was in the paper yesterday.

Our Lady:  Did I not tell you all would be done well, for the greater honor and glory of God?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, You did, but when I first read the article, I looked for negative things in it, though when I realized I was looking only at the negative and not the positive, I felt better.

Our Lady:  Child, it is time for it to reach the media, and I have chosen the one who was to write the article so it would be done with compassion for those involved.  Now, those who are interested in a place to pray when others gather, will be touched and called to this place of peace.  You really need not be concerned, child.  You have been told that God has His hand upon you and all those involved.  He will try to make all that you do, go as easily as possible.  It does not mean, however, that the evil one will not come up against you constantly, but you have many prayer warriors sending up your name, and the intentions of you and your family.  God is being bombarded with your name, and those who are concerned for you, and all you are trying to do on His behalf.  These prayers do not go unnoticed, child.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for reassurance, Mother.

Our Lady:  It will all be done for you.  Remember these words?  Let them be imprinted upon your heart.  God has great plans for you.  You cannot see this, because you cannot believe you are worthy of these plans.  Child, you have said 'yes', you are listening, you are obedient, and share all God has said to you.  This is all that is required for you at the present time.  Satan continues to come up against you and your family in all ways, but your faith is strong, child, and beautiful to behold.  You continue to tell your family, "We just have to give it to God and let Him handle it.  He does a better job that we can ever do."  That is called surrendering to the will of the Father.

Ruth Ann:  Isn't that what we're all called to do?

Our Lady:  Yes, child, that is what we are all called to do, but when times are difficult, and you see no way out, most become frustrated and angry with God, and begin feeling sorry for themselves and those around them experiencing the difficulty.

Ruth Ann:  I've done my share of that, Mother.  I'm certainly a far cry from being the patient person You would make me out to be.  I've had my share of 'temper tantrums'.

Our Lady:  You have come so far, little one of God, and you don't even realize it.  What time of the morning is it?

Ruth Ann:  3:15 AM.

Our Lady:  And why are you not sleeping, like most of My children?

Ruth Ann:  Because I was awakened, and wanted to speak with You before I start My day, without any interruptions.

Our Lady:  Does that not tell you something, child?

Ruth Ann:  Only what I have just said to You, Mother.

Our Lady:  This is a quiet, special time I am spending here with you, when you could be sleeping.

Ruth Ann:  I have been feeling called to do this for quite some time, Mother.  It's just that I have difficulty getting up in the morning, and always have had, well, at least since the children have been grown.  It was much easier to get up at all hours when I had little ones depending on me.

Our Lady:  My little ones are depending on Me, child.  That is why I am here.  I have given up My peaceful time with God to go forth and minister to His children.  I am going forth to call all My children back to God.  It is through you, and many others such as you, that more and more are being called away from darkness and into the light.  Many are just beginning to recognize the importance of My role in the salvation of mankind.  I was a willing instrument through which God sent His only Son to the earth in the beginning, and now He's sending Me out to prepare His children for His Son's Second Coming.  Those who are listening and sharing what He is saying through the Mother of His Only-Begotten Son, are gaining many graces.  The graces are for what is to come before the arrival of My Son, and your Redeemer, Jesus Christ. 

Do not place so little importance on your role, child.  You are being obedient, and you are listening.  Many blessings and graces will come through you and this place of prayer blessed by God.  Make no mistake about it.  There are so few 'willing workers', instruments that are willing to totally die of self, so that others may live.  You and your family are sacrificing much, but you continue on each day, not knowing what is to come but already saying, "Whatever, Lord."

Ruth Ann:  I want to go to Heaven, Mother.  How can I turn my back on God and say, "Sorry, You'll have to get someone else who loves You more than I do to do this?"  That would be pretty selfish on my part.

Our Lady:  You cannot imagine how many of God's children have done just that, turned their backs on Him Who gave them life, and said, "Not me, Lord.  You'll have to get someone else to do Your work."  Their faith is not there when it is needed most.

Ruth Ann:  Let's talk of something else.  I really don't want You to speak about me.   You are giving me more than I deserve.  There are so many who are helping me, people You and God have sent into my life, Mary's Children, all the helping hands along the way, being provided by You and God.  These are the ones making all this possible.  I could never do this alone.  My family, children, and their spouses, and future spouses, have all been wonderful.  I know the graces have come from God for them to be able to handle all that is happening.  Their lives, too, are being affected by all this.

Our Lady:  Child, it will continue to be so.

Ruth Ann:  I am aware of that, Mother, but I also know we'll make it through whatever comes.  I believe and trust in God.  He would not send me more than I can handle.  I feel the same is true for my family, so I am confident that whatever comes next, the graces will be there.

Our Lady:  He has promised this to you.  It has been promised to all of His children who try to do His will, no matter what.  Your faith and trust in God strengthens that faith and trust in others.  See how God works?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother.

Our Lady:  Now you must get some rest before the beginning of another busy day.  Go in the peace of My Son, Jesus.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother.  I love You.

 

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 April 5, 1994,  from Our Lady

Our Lady:  Your ministry is here on the farm.  You are tending to the lost sheep who would otherwise go astray.  You are gathering God's children together in one fold.  That is what God has asked you to do through Me.  Here His children are gaining graces and peace they cannot find in other places.  Here their faith is being restored.  In watching you step out in faith to do the will of God, others, too, are gaining the strength they need to witness to the greatness and goodness of God's mercy.  Through those who care enough for their brothers and sisters to stand firm in Jesus and Mary, many souls are being touched and brought back to the faith they had as small children.  This is your ministry, little one of God.  This is the ministry of your family.  Your family is to be a beacon of light, little child.  Do you not remember those words spoken to you in Medjugorje?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Mother, I do.

Our Lady:  You should refer back to that message of prophecy from time to time.  There is more in that message than you realize.  Many truths were revealed to you, and these are coming to fruition, the good as well as the bad.  The persecution has begun, child.  This you knew would come.  But God will provide you with ample graces to sustain you through these times.  Be not afraid.  You were told you were to experience My Son's walk to Calvary.  Also, you were told you were to carry that cross, so you should not be surprised at anything the evil one would thrust at you through those around you.  Child, you are to give it all to God.  Let Him tend to all these problems, hurts, and disappointments.  Then you will regain your peace.  God wants from you total acceptance and trust.  Now, child, go in the peace of My Son, Jesus Christ.  Know My protective mantle surrounds you and your loved ones.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother.

 

Message of June 6, 1994,
from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, there are those who come to me seeking advice.  Please help me guide those who are asking my help.

Jesus:  Little one, the advice you have given is of the utmost importance, that advice being, trust in the Lord, do His will, turn everything over to Him and let Him work in your life.  Once My children admit they can do nothing without My help, I can begin to work in their lives in a greater way than ever before.

Ruth Ann:  I find it very easy to tell others that, but I know how difficult it really is for one to do.  I also know it really shouldn't be difficult.

Jesus:  My children are so used to being in complete control, that they find it extremely difficult to survive when they find they do not have control of a situation.  Instead of saying, 'Lord, I really don't know what to do.  You are going to have to tend to this.  I put it in Your hands', they panic and try even harder to try and to some kind of control or order in their lives.  My children have a difficult time turning all things over to Me, the great and the small.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I find myself doing the same thing.  It is difficult to get up each day, going forth, doing all that You ask, and not knowing exactly where it's all going to end.  I thought at one time I pretty well had my life mapped out, and now I realize I have no idea where my life is going.  I do know I can do nothing without You, so I say to You, "Work all things out for Your greater honor and glory, it's all Yours."

Jesus:  Thank you for your faith and trust, little one.  I will tend to your every need, just as I will tend to all those who come to Me in faith and trust.  Without complete faith and trust, there can be no peace.  My children struggle so, trying too hard to control their lives, and the lives of those around them, and all I ask is for them to submit to My will, and let Me help them with those things that seem to overwhelm them.  Nothing can be too difficult if you have My help or the help of My Mother.  She, too, wishes to be of help to Her children.

Life could be so much more peaceful for the entire world if all My children would learn to turn their struggles over to Me.  I will never allow you to carry too much.  When the burden gets too great, share it with Me.  Many of you carry very heavy crosses, but you need not carry them alone.  Know I am here for you.  God loves you, little children.  Allow Him to help you carry on with peace and harmony in your midst.  Do not let the one of darkness keep you in turmoil.  Do not allow him to influence you toward thoughts and deeds that are of an unkind nature.  Be at peace, children.  Love one another as I have loved you.  Put all in God's hands.  His plan is perfect.  Be patient, love, and trust, and watch God's plan unfold.

You can rest assured that in the end, all things work for the good, even those things done through the work and at the hands of the evil one, will bring about beautiful things for those who continue to love and trust in Me.  Do not lose heart, children, I am with you even to the end of the earth.  I am here forever and always, throughout eternity.  What better friend could any one of My children have, than He Who would send His only Son to the earth to redeem mankind for their sins.

Now He sends the Mother of His Son as co-redemptrix, to bring about an end to the evil, and the salvation of mankind.  Make no mistake, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of your Jesus, will triumph over all evil.  She Herself has said, "In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.  Satan will be defeated."  These words were, and are prophetic.  These words are truth.  They will be fulfilled.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

 

Message of Sept. 28, 1994  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, there is so much I write that I don't really understand.

Jesus:  It is not necessary that you understand.  It is only important that you listen and write what is being said to you.  God has a plan.  As He chooses, all will fall into place.  It is up to those chosen to listen, to be vigilant, and obedient.  You are needed to be of help to all those who are seeking the hope and strength they have lost.  Many are struggling in this time of darkness, and are reaching out for something, or someone, to hold onto.  In some cases, all faith and hope is gone.  It is up to those of you who have experienced the goodness of God's mercy, to share this hope and light in this time of darkness.  You need not understand what is being said to you at this time.  You need only share, and be obedient to the will of God.

My children are losing hope.  The world they know is crumbling around them.  You must help them stay focused on God, and let them know He does care.  If He can work in your life, then He can work in the lives of others.  As a disciple of Jesus, you have a great responsibility in sharing the word of God.  The words My Mother has been sharing with Her children are all words that come from the Word of God.  The words I have spoken to My children in the New Testament, are all being repeated in the words and messages sent to the earth at this time. 

My Mother realizes few read the Bible, so She is speaking in words that are simple and easily understood, to those chosen to listen and share.  The messages are simple and basic.  They are Truth, and bring love and peace.  Turn back to God, turn away from the world.  God loves you.  Pray, dear children, return to the faith you had as a child.  Trust, and follow the Ten Commandments, God's laws for you.  Love God and your neighbor as you love yourself. 

If My children would only listen and turn back to God, much pain and suffering could be avoided.  But as stubborn children who do not wish to listen, they must learn the hard way.  My Mother was sent here in order to help you avoid the disasters that are about to befall you.  She has called Her children to prayer and fasting.  She has asked that they do penance.  Many choose to ignore these messages because they do not believe what is being said, and others do not wish to inconvenience themselves in this way.  Better now than later.  Later the sacrifices will not be through choice.  The sacrifices you will make will become a part of your life, because you have not listened to the words being spoken to you.  You will wish you had listened and done as My Mother has asked of you, when you still had choices to make.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, this all sounds too serious to me.  Where are the encouraging words?

Jesus:  The encouraging words are these little one, listen, and stay focused on what is being said to you by My Mother.  She is trying to get the attention of God's children, while there is still time to bring about the conversion so necessary for so many.  You need only be obedient and share what is being said.  God in His infinite wisdom and mercy will tend to the rest.  My children have need of strength and faith.  They need encouragement in their journey of faith.  Minister to My children.  They are in need.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, you've chosen the lowest of the low.  You should have chosen someone stronger.

Jesus:  It is through your weakness that you will be made strong.  Faith, trust, and a willingness to follow God's will are all that is necessary to be a true servant of God.  You have these qualities.  Need I say more?

Ruth Ann:  No Lord, just give me the strength to do whatever you ask of me.

Jesus:  I do not ask any of My children to do more than they are capable.  The graces and strength will always be there for you.  You need only be obedient.
