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 October 9, 1993 from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus, so many things are running through my mind. I really need some quiet time with You.
Jesus: I am here, little one.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Jesus: Child, I am always here to listen. This is not just true for you, but for all My children. It is My children who must make time for Me. I am always ready to listen, as well as answer My children. They need only pray and listen. For some, this is extremely difficult. Most of My children are so caught up in the world around them, they have no quiet time. No quiet time to speak to Me, and no quiet time to listen. The more material things they accumulate in their lives to make living easier in this world, the more time they have to scurry around doing more things. Man in his desire to have life more convenient has nearly blocked out all quiet times he had in his life. Many of the hours he had working the land, or baking his daily bread, is now spent in pushing buttons and running here and there to take care of business. Many of the hours that he had spent in communion with God in nature, is spent on things of less importance. My children have nearly wiped Me from their lives completely. So much so, that many believe I do not exist. They actually feel I am not responsible for what goes on in their daily existence. They forget Who has put them here, and for what purpose.
Ruth Ann: I am guilty of the 'busy' part, Lord. I really thought I'd have all kinds of time to listen, once I was no longer teaching, but it is not so. I have filled my day with other things, and much is filled with telephone calls and people wishing to speak with me. If I stay at home, I have very little quiet time. I am feeling my quiet time becoming infringed upon. If I don't speak with You in the early hours of the day, I find there is no time throughout the day for sharing with You, at least no time to write what You are saying to me.
Jesus: But child, you still speak with Me and listen when you need. That is most important. Some do nothing. Some continue to flounder about their day, filling it with work, play, and other distractions. Many are addicted to noise of any kind, to distract them from thinking about what is going on around them. Many find distractions in order not to speak to each other.
What has happened to My beautiful world, and all that has been created for man to enjoy? What has happened to My children? Their peace has been lost. Much of the disease man now suffers is brought on by losing this peace. In trying to make life easier for man, man has harmed his body, mind, and soul. He has brought stress upon himself. He continually wants and needs to cram more and more into his day, and complains that the days are not long enough. See what he does to himself and to others? God knows that man must work for a living, but man is not to work 24 hours a day. Man must also have time to play. This is needed to stay healthy. He must also have time to rest and pray. There must be a balance in one's life to truly be at peace with himself and with God. Many find time for work, and some find time for work and play, but few find time for all. Those who do, find life less hectic.
Those who keep a healthy balance in their lives, and come to Me with all their wants and needs, have a peace that others do not have. Those who are able to turn their lives over to Me, and do the will of the Father, are at peace with themselves, others, and the world around them. Even the horror of what is going on around them does not shake their faith, because they know that what is of the utmost importance is the peace they have in their hearts. The peace they have with God Himself is their ultimate goal. Once that is achieved, man knows his place in the scheme of things. He knows he, and all he stands for, is but a tiny grain of sand on a giant beach. He realizes he is put here to fill in a piece in a giant puzzle, a puzzle that, when completed, is the will of God. How can My children know what their part of this giant puzzle is, if they continue to flounder about, finding 'things' to fill every corner of their life?
My Mother is calling to all of Her children to pray. Pray from the heart. She tells everyone, "When you love someone, do you find it difficult to talk to that person, and share with them all that is going on? You also find yourself wanting to be in the presence of that person. You want to share time with them, even quiet time. You want to listen to what they have to say. You want to please them." Child, that is all I am asking from My children. All I am asking of them is to show they love the One Who created them and Who is responsible for their very existence on the earth. I want to share with them the love I have for them. I want to hear what they have to say. I want to lift their heavy burdens and share the desires, hopes, and dreams of their hearts. When two people love each other, these things are important. For many, this still is not possible. My Mother will continue to call out to all of Her children, though, until it can be no more. You have a saying in your world, 'stop and smell the roses'. Don't you think that it is most appropriate that My Mother is calling to many of Her children through this beautiful fragrance?
Ruth Ann: I was just thinking of that yesterday Lord, and it was like a great revelation to me.
Jesus: Yes little one, I know. I wonder how many others have made the connection. In stopping to smell the roses, so to speak, you can see all that God is doing in your life. Many must experience a great tragedy before they can be stopped long enough to contemplate the gifts of God...the air man breathes, the ground man walks on, the birds that sing. How many take the time to hear the birds singing? Or is that an irritation rather than a blessing to some? Man has so much to be grateful for. He has a God Who loves him, a God Who has sent His Son to die for him, and a God Who now sends the Mother of His Son among man to awaken him from a world asleep to the goodness of God. "All is not lost," She says, "There is still hope, God loves you. Pray." My Mother is doing all She can to bring God's children back to Him. Man must learn to listen and do his part in prayer. You continue to share what is being said to you, little one. This too, is extremely important. Many are being called to do this. I thank you for taking the time to listen and share.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm the one who thanks You for giving me such a beautiful gift. I'm just sorry that it brings with it more than I would want for myself and family. I only wish I could listen and share without being known.
Jesus: You must think of others, little one. Think of all the blessings and graces My children would be missing had you not shared. Think of the conversions that could not have been brought about, and the miracles in others' lives that have happened as a result of your sharing My words and those of My Mother.
Ruth Ann: I know Lord, but did You have to use our farm to bring the graces and miracles? This is where we live.
Jesus: It is only temporary, child. You know you will be moving from here. You have been told this many times before by My Mother, and by Me, and now you are hearing it from the lips of others. Be patient, child. God's plan continues to unfold, and you continue to listen and be obedient. For this, I am grateful.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I love You. I only wish I could be all You want me to be, and You continue to be so patient with me, even though You know I am reluctant in all I say and do.
Jesus: Child, it is because I know your heart.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I do so much want to please You, but I find that things You ask me to do very difficult.
Jesus: When you take up the cross and follow Me, the road is never easy. Just continue to do the will of My Father. He will provide all that is necessary for this journey to be completed.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Thank You for being here for me.
Jesus: I am always here for you. Now I know you must go. Know that My love and peace are with you.
Message of December 11, 1993 from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I have not written what Your Mother has spoken to me for quite a while, but yet I feel I should be speaking with You this morning.
Jesus: If you have time, speak with both of Us today.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Is there something in particular You wish to say, or is it my desire that has made me feel there is a need?
Jesus: Little one, you know I would speak to you and any of My children, any time of the day or night. It is up to you to find the quiet time in order for you to listen without interruptions or distractions. Even if it is only for a few minutes, it is important to have that contact with Me, the God of peace.
Man talks of the world being such a 'mess'. This is not difficult to notice. Most of My children who pay any attention to the news of any kind are aware of the death and destruction all around them. The violence that man does to each other has become commonplace. While My Mother is calling for peace in your hearts and homes, the violence continues on. How can there be peace in the world, if man does not have that peace in his own heart? It is important, little one, that My children find this peace that is so necessary. A true conversion must come within oneself. There must be a peace and contentment in one's inner self, so that he can help those around him find peace. Once you have found peace, and share this peace with others, it acts as a chain reaction among My people. Those who have lost this peace, or in some cases, have never had it, wish to know peace, or have it returned to them.
During these times of war in so many places, and turmoil of all kinds, it is important for My children to have a place to gather where they can have this peace, even if it is only for a few minutes. It is good for My children to have this common goal. Remember, when two or more are gathered in My name, there I will be. God hears all prayers, but He is especially pleased when My children gather in great numbers to pay homage to all that My Mother is asking Her children to do.
This is a time of grace, and My Mother is pouring out graces to all those who ask. Sometimes, it is in the form of little miracles. Sometimes, it is big miracles. It depends on what God will allow Her to do. God is the One Who is in control, but know My Mother will continue to plead for all of Her children, for special graces, until God tells Her it is no longer possible. That time is drawing near, little one.
My children continue to ignore the signs, but that does not mean, by ignoring, that it will go away. As in the time of Noah, man continued on his merry way, ignoring God. It did not stop God from carrying out the plans He had for the punishment of man, for all the evil he had brought upon himself. Man will have to answer for all the death, cruelty, and abuses he has afflicted upon himself and his neighbor.
Man was given a commandment, 'Love thy neighbor as thyself for the love of God'. How many truly observe this commandment? How many even know it exists? Man has become so corrupt and self-serving, he loves self and money. Even the love he has for 'self' is not a good love. He does not respect himself as a temple of the Lord God. He loves 'self' in such a way as not to wish to deny 'self' any pleasure: whether it is food, drink, material things, sexual pleasure, man does not wish to deny his body anything.
But what of his soul? His soul continues to wither and die from lack of care. His spiritual self is denied in so many ways. The spirit, too, must be fed. In doing so, My children will find peace. It is through prayer and the word of God that the spirit can grow and soar and become one with the divine Creator. Without tending to the spirit, there can be no peace and no true love of self. Man must give up his selfish way of living. He must learn to tend to the needs of his neighbor, both physical and spiritual. And in doing so, his true inner self will break through this shell he has built around him; 'conversion', this word you hear over and over from My Mother. Pray for conversion, a true conver-sion of self and others. This is what the world needs, and it can only come through prayer and the grace of God.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, we all continue to pray for a true conversion, just because Your Mother has asked. I'm not sure if anyone really knew what we were asking for. Thank You for explaining it to me.
Jesus: Soon it will be time for you to go about your busy day, go with My peace, little one.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I love You.
Jesus: And I love you, little one.
Message of July 6, 1994,
Ruth Ann: Mother, some days the messages are very difficult for me to hear.
Our Lady: You know the reason for this, child. The evil one realizes the need for these words for My children, and wishes to cause as much confusion and distraction as possible. It is necessary for you to pray before asking for this message. This will give you the peace you need in order to listen.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother, I'm finding that to be extremely important. Is there anything else You wish to add? You know I have a talk today. Please be with me.
Our Lady: Not only will I be with you, little child, but I will provide the words I would have you say.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, that is a great blessing for me that provides me with a peace that I really didn't expect today.
Our Lady: Child, you are helping Me with God's plan for the salvation of His children. How could I not be with you?
Ruth Ann: I know You are always with me at my talks. I've never doubted that. It's just that there is no peace before a talk. The struggle goes on and on, dear Mother.
Our Lady: Child, the peace you need to give your talk today will be provided. Be not afraid. I am with you, as is your Jesus. You have many praying for you at all times. This has been placed upon the hearts of all who realize the difficulties you and your family face as a result of speaking out and witnessing to the love of God in your life. Many experience graces, blessings, true conversions, and yet do not share this great grace with anyone. Their light is hidden under a bushel.
You have experienced many miracles in your life, and have shared these from the very beginning. As a result, the graces and miracles will continue to grow. You reach out to those of My children in need of the knowledge that God is working miracles, now. He is speaking to His children, now. He is giving graces and blessings to His children to provide them with a true conversion, now. It takes those of you who have said 'yes', to provide them with this knowledge, so they too, can experience the greatness of His goodness and mercy, while it is still available.
Had you not responded to this call, God would have chosen another to do this which you are doing. But you have responded to His call, and you are providing a lifeline to many of His children who are struggling in a pool of darkness. Through your gift, you are providing many with the strength and knowledge that God will work in their lives if they only have the faith and trust to believe in miracles.
So many of My children have become so worldly, they do not realize or believe that God cares enough to work in the daily lives of each of His children. He cares about your day, your life, your concerns are His. Nothing is too big or too trivial to bring to your God. He wishes to tend to the tiniest detail of your life. You need only turn your life over to Him, so He can do for you many, many things you could not believe possible. It is in turning your life over to Him that you receive it. It is in dying of self that you are born again. Peace will reign in your heart you have never thought possible, once you have learned to let go, and let God do the work that is needed in your life.
Many of these things I am saying to you have been said before, but they must be repeated over and over, until your hearts are truly broken open to receive these words and accept them with all of your heart. Then, and only then, can God truly do the work in your life that is needed. All of My children, listen and heed these words.
Now, you have a busy day ahead of you. Go in God's peace. Know I am with you, as is My Son.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother.
Message of August 3, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, in the message today, You said not to be saddened by all that is going on around you. But it is so difficult to see and hear things that hurt you and others, and not be saddened by it.
Our Lady: All I am saying to you is, don't focus on this part. Focus on My Son, and the peace and love He has brought for His children by His death on the cross. His death and resurrection should remain the central focus. Things of the earth are but for a fleeting moment. Salvation is for eternity. Continue to pray, and stay focused on what is truly important. I am not saying that you are not to have compassion and love for your neighbor who is struggling. I am saying just the opposite. I am calling you to do something about those situations. Pray for those who hate you and cause you pain. Pray for those who are less fortunate than you. Ask for their peace and conversion. If you can help others monetarily or physically in some way, do so, but do not lose hope.
I know this is difficult for many of you to understand as you watch the death and destruction all over the world. How much of what you have seen in other countries has come to your own? You have been warned of this, dear children. Many of My messages have told of these disasters that will come to your country, but still man continues to turn a deaf ear. Those of you who are truly listening, are seeing the results of a lack of prayer, and a lack of faith. God continues to try to get the attention of His children, but still, they ignore the signs that He is losing patience with His children.
Those of you who are listening must continue to pray for conversions. Man is in need of having a change of heart. He must be called back from a world that focuses on darkness. Money, lust for power, sex, greed for worldly goods, all have contributed to the downfall of your world. Man must turn away from all these things and turn back to God. Material things in themselves are not evil. It is man's lust for more, bigger, and better, that continuously causes him to lose focus on what is truly important. All of your material things can be removed in the blink of an eye, and then what do you have? What profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his soul? Man must not lose focus of this purpose for the gift of life, or the gift of material things God has given to His children.
I am here to call you back. I am here to guide you on the right path, and away from that which will bring you destruction of your peace, and of your immortal soul. Be at peace, and know that God has great things in store for those who love Him. Pray, dear children, for all evil to be destroyed, and darkness to be lifted from your land. Pray for peace, God's peace, and all other things will become less important to you. Put God first, and His plan for you and all other things will fall into place. God's will be done. I love you. Go in God's peace.
Message of August 24, 1994,
Ruth Ann: Mother, You seem to be concerned about so many of us keeping our peace.
Our Lady: Child, many of you are struggling to keep your peace, and it need not be such a struggle if you can stay focused on God. In many of the messages earlier, I spoke to you of being able to keep this peace when times would become more difficult. Times are becoming more difficult, and I am seeing My children struggle to stay at peace. The evil one truly enjoys this. If he can distract and disturb those who try so hard to do the will of God, then think how easy it is for him to use those who are not focused. He continues to destroy what peace My children try so hard to obtain and keep.
My heart aches for you, because so many of you are losing your focus. It does not matter if the whole world should crumble around you, stay focused on My Son. You were put on this earth to know, love, and serve God, and be happy with Him in heaven. You need only strive for holiness by picking up your cross and following in the footsteps of My Jesus. This was not easy for Him, and it will not be easy for you. Know I love you and am praying with, and for, each one of you. I am in your midst to keep you focused on My Son, even though life continues to be difficult for you.
Man has caused his world to become so corrupt, and full of unrest and hatred, by allowing the prince of darkness to take over the earth. There is a war being waged at present time. This is not of a physical nature. It is called spiritual warfare. Good is fighting evil, and evil seems to have the upper hand. Be at peace, My little children. Good will eventually triumph over evil. There will be much suffering, which My children must endure, before this great battle, that is being waged, will be won, but do not doubt the strength of prayer. That is why I am calling so many to prayer. Only prayer can stop the evil that is taking over your world, prayer and the power of God.
Do not doubt for one minute that God is not listening to your prayers. He sees your tears and He feels your pain. Be at peace little children, and know that God is in your midst. When the time is right, all evil will be destroyed. Listen to My messages. Stay focused on My Son, and do not let the evil one destroy your peace.
God loves you, and I love you. Be at peace with one another. Pray to keep this peace.
Message of October 22, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, do You wish to speak to me?
Our Lady: Child, your Jesus has said all that needs to be said. You must stay focused on Him. He is your hope and salvation. He is Love, Hope, and Peace. My children continue to walk in a world where there is no light. The darkness is all around them, and if they do not focus on My Son, Who is the Light and Hope of salvation, they will be lost in this darkness.
I have come to lead My children out of this darkness, and into the Light that is My Son. Many refuse to listen, and this is causing them to continue on a path that leads to destruction. I have come to lead them and guide them, but I cannot make the choice needed in order for them to achieve the peace they desire. If they choose God, and all He stands for, there will be peace in man's heart, even though there may not be peace in the world around him. My children must realize that it is God's peace they seek. They try to find solace in the things of the world, and it cannot be found in material things. Greed and lust are common among you.
There is much sorrow in My Heart for those of My children not listening to the word of God, brought to this earth by His Mother. I can only do so much. I am allowed by God to do all that I am doing, but the time will come when what I am doing will no longer be allowed. I have come to assist you, and bring you back to My Jesus. You must listen, and follow the will of God for you. Be at peace with one another, and love God above all things. I am your Mother. Listen, and be obedient to your Father in Heaven. He loves you, and wishes your souls to be saved. My mantle surrounds you. Go in God's peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for speaking with me.
Our Lady: I do so that you may share what I am saying to those of My children who are willing to listen.
Ruth Ann: It is done, Mother.
Message of Dec. 21, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
I am your Mother, here to help you. You struggle so, and it need not be the case. Turn your lives over to God. Put Him first, and all other things will fall into place. God wishes you to have peace. There are too many distractions in your lives. Empty yourself of all those things that prevent you from drawing closer to the One Who has created you. God loves you, and wishes for you to save your soul. This can be done through a true conversion. Pray from the heart for this conversion for you, and all those who do not know God as they should. I am here to help you on this journey of faith and trust in God. Take the words being spoken to you to your heart. Know God is listening, and tending to each one of your prayers. Trust, little children, trust. God's plan is perfect. Be at peace.
Message of Dec. 21, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, is there anything You wish to add?
Our Lady: Child, during this Advent season, many draw away from My Son through their 'busyness'. They have forgotten the true meaning of the Christmas season. This should be a time of letting go of the things that take them away from the central focus of their life, and instead, they are accumulating more and more, of the very distractions they need to discard. That is because My children have become 'worldly'. They do not choose to accumulate what is most important. Love and peace have become nearly non-existent in your world.
Many speak of being stressed out, or confused. My Son comes bringing peace. There is no room in your life for those things that are not of Him. All things in moderation. God recognizes the fact you must work. And He knows you have needs that must be tended to. He also realizes you must find time to rest. There must be a balance in your life. In your quiet time set aside each day, even if it is only a brief moment, let Him know you love Him. He gets so little attention in a busy world caught up in all those things that distract, and detract from His love and goodness. The more man accumulates, the more man wants. It is like an addiction.
Seek first God's love and peace, and all other things will become less important to you. Prioritize your lives, little children, and in doing so you will find this peace you seek. God loves you, and I love you. Go in His peace.
Message of January 18, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, do You have anything You wish to share?
Jesus: Little one, My children have so much to learn, and so little time in which to learn it. You cannot serve two gods. Man continues to be caught up in the things of the world, and soon he will realize that he has made a terrible mistake. He must turn to God, and lean upon Him for all the strength he seeks through power, and wealth. Material things are not permanent, little children. And because of the feeling that things are more important than God, many of you cannot find the peace you seek. 'Things' can be removed from you in the blink of an eye. Your good health too, can be removed. Then, little children, where is your faith?
Many are experiencing loss through all the disasters falling upon your world. Do those still have the faith to trust in God? Only if their faith is such that they realize that all things come from God, and all things can be removed by Him, if He so chooses. Can they be sustained? How much easier it would be for My children, if they could realize this, before these things are removed. My children, you must learn to remove yourself from all things that distract you from the true love, that must be given to God. He is your Creator and Lord, and Master of the universe. All things come through Him, and all love and respect are due Him.
Peace does not come from those things of this world. It does not come from money, power, or pleasures of the flesh. 'Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His love, and all things will fall into place.' Man must learn to prioritize his life. Place God first, and your needs will be tended to. Trust in God's love and mercy. The world is experiencing great upheaval, as the Hand of Justice continues to move from place to place. Man must open his eyes and heart to the way in which God is speaking to Him. He is wanting to get the attention of His children, so that they will seek out His love and mercy, but many still do not understand the signs.
Pray for those who still do not understand that God wishes for them to turn away from the world, and back to Him. Pray for true conversions for all His children, so that they too, can realize that the peace they seek can only come from God.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: Now, go in My peace. You have much to do today. Do it with love and peace in your heart.
