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 June 22, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
You continue to bless me, and I continue to fight against all that You wish for me to do. It's because of two things, Lord; I don't want to be a false prophet, and I don't feel worthy of all that You are calling me to do. Lord, there is so much pain out there, so many people hurting and asking for prayer. They are poor, and are driving long ways Lord, for prayer. I don't feel worthy of such trust that I will have a special gift of prayer better than their own prayer. I am afraid of failing them, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, little one, again I say to you, "You be obedient and do as I ask." I know this pain also, and their pain is your pain, and it does touch My heart to see you grieve for so many. It is true child, it is difficult for Me to deny one such as you, your prayers. You are giving up so much to be of help to Me little one, that I will deny you nothing.
Ruth Ann: Lord, this is in print, or it will be. That's a very special and overwhelming statement You are making.
Jesus: Child, I can make this statement where you are concerned, because I know your heart. You ask only for those things that I too, wish for My children. It is necessary in the case of many of My children to be aware that God is answering your prayers in a mighty way. It is to get the attention of many that this will happen on a bigger and bigger scale. Do not worry little one, you are up to meeting this. You have already proven yourself in so many ways. You continue to give and give of yourself. This is a blessing to My people. They know you are special, and this is why they come to you for prayer. They are seeking My help and the help of My Mother through you. The prayers will be answered little one, because of this faith and trust in me. Miracles come through faith, little one. Your faith is special. As a result of your sharing this faith with others, their faith is strengthened. This causes miracles, little one. Miracles are the result of faith and trust in God. Now see how it all works?
By your sharing your experiences and love and trust in Me and My Mother, others receive the faith they need to accept the miracles God has for them. Man will not always get the miracles he seeks, but God will give him the miracles that he needs. Just remember, little one, you are chosen to be special by God. It is not of your choosing, you have a free will, yes, and you could walk away at any time, but God knows your heart, and He knows that you will not choose to do so. You will persevere, as all of His chosen ones down through time, in hopes that anything you do will be of help to Him who created you. This is pleasing to God, and that is why all the miracles big and small, child, miracles for you and your family and all those whose lives you touch in any way. This is not the end child, it is only the beginning.
Ruth Ann: I have so much to be grateful for, Lord. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
Jesus: Child, your Jesus loves you. Continue to listen and do My will. This is all I wish from you.
Ruth Ann: With Your help, I can do whatever You ask of me. Help me to know that always.
Jesus: It is done. You have a busy day ahead of you, child. Thank you for beginning it with prayer. Prayer is lifting your mind and heart to God. This you have done and are doing each time you speak with Me. This is true prayer, child. I am only telling you this because when I said, "Thank you for beginning your day with prayer," you questioned Me in your mind. You did not understand, and thought to yourself, "I have not said any prayers this morning." Your speaking with Me is true prayer, little one. You shut the world out, and let Me in. What a blessing for Me.
Ruth Ann: Blessing, Lord?
Jesus: Would you rather I said, 'gift'? My children bless Me with gifts of praise, prayer, and sacrifices. These are all blessings to Me, little one. My children who listen are blessings to those in Heaven who have need of their help in prayer. You do not fully understand child, but that is not important. It is important that you listen and do the will of God. This you are doing. Now, you may go in God's peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for being here for me, Lord.
Message of Nov. 14, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord.
Jesus: Yes, little one.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am feeling guilty. I feel I am not writing as much as I should, the messages that You are giving me. I am feeling that I should spend more time in dialogue with You.
Jesus: That will be your choice, little one. I will encourage, but I will not demand that you write every day.
Ruth Ann: You know now that I will try, even if it is only for a few minutes, Lord. How did my life get so full? I don't see how I managed to teach, give talks, attend Mass daily, and all the other things, and have time to write what You were telling me.
Jesus: You found the time because you realized how important it was to share what I am saying with you. You attended Mass and prayed because these are all things you have been told to do. The Sacraments strengthen, and so does prayer, not only the one who prays, but the one being prayed for. Reading My words in the Sacred Scripture, the New Testament, is extremely important, so that you can grow. You must learn to attend retreats when it is possible, because that is also a source of growth. You need strengthening, little one, for what lies ahead. You have many praying for you, and this is of importance. Many realize in their hearts that much more is in store for you, that your cross is not an ordinary one. Your priest, too, is aware of this, as are many of the members of your prayer group.
Ruth Ann: I am blessed, Lord, to have so many who are concerned about my welfare. I have friends that truly care about me.
Jesus: Child, that is because they see more than you see. They look at you and say, "I would like to have her gift, but I would not like to give up my life for others." The two are one. They cannot be separated. So too, are the trials and tribulations that go with all you are doing. The pressure is great, but it will continue to grow, little one. That is the reason for your respite. Enjoy the time you have. The time will come when you will have time for little else except what I would have you do.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I will surely have time for my grandchildren. You won't take everything away from me, will you? I love my family. They are all a part of me.
Jesus: I will not, and do not, expect to take you from your family. I know how much they mean to you, and that is as it should be. I am only telling you that what I will have you do for Me will require more and more of your time. It will be more and more difficult to find time for your family. You will have to carve out time for them, just as you are doing for Me and prayer at this time in your life.
Ruth Ann: Lord, many are asking me where I was moving to, because they had read in a message that this place will become a retreat house, manned by retired priests.
Jesus: My Mother has spoken of this to you, and this is to be so. All of this will come to pass.
Ruth Ann: Other people are saying, "How can this be, since Jesus tells you the end is near?"
Jesus: I have not said the end is near. You have been told that time is running out and that I will be coming soon. These things are true. I have also said I will come to you and ask you to carry My cross, and that too, will be soon. Be not afraid, little one. You will be told all you need to know when the time is right.
You will need to move from where you live for more than one reason. Not only because you will not have peace, but the house will be used by those who wish to find peace. The two sound contradictory, but they are not. You will need quiet and solitude in order to pray, and it will not be available to you in your present location. That does not mean you will be moving far away. You will remain there when you are needed.
You are a beacon of light for My children, and you will continue to be so. As you grow, your light will grow, many will be strengthened by what is happening to you. Many will be strengthened because they see your faith and trust in God. They see you continue on your journey of faith, not knowing what tomorrow will bring, and that gives them the faith and strength to carry on in their daily lives. Your faith strengthens the faith of those around you. That is why it is so important to share what is going on in your life, with others, the good as well as the bad.
Many think that because you hear the words of your Jesus, and My Mother, that you do not have to contend with the bad. That is not so. The stronger your faith, the more you continue to be tested. The evil one wishes to bend and break those who are helping win souls to Jesus Christ. So it would make sense that he would come against you in a mighty way. Doubts, fears, and confusion in your life, such as you have experienced in the past few weeks, are all part of his ways. You continue to listen to Me, pray, and be obedient to the will of God, even though you have been living in the middle of construction and mess for several months. You get irritated from time to time, because you are one who wishes things to be neat and tidy, but you offer it up and say, "Truly this must be God's will for me," and you continue on.
Ruth Ann: You are being too kind, Lord. Jim hears my complaints.
Jesus: He hears your complaints, but it has not stopped you praying or working for Me, has it? That is what I am saying, you and your husband continue on.
Ruth Ann: Yes, we do, sometimes it even amazes me, Lord. I'm really only joking.
Jesus: (Smilingly) I know that, little one. I know your heart, remember? I know what you do, and how much you can take, and how much you love Me. I am at an advantage. You would die for Me.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I don't think that is unusual. I think most Christians would die for You. That's what it means to be a Christian. Besides, if you die for Jesus, I have been told by the good nuns, that you are a martyr, and if I'm not mistaken, martyrs for the Lord go to Heaven. So it's purely selfish on the part of those of us who would do that. We all want to go to Heaven.
Jesus: You are very naive, little one. Not all of My children would die for Me, and not all care whether or not they go to Heaven. Some don't even believe in Me or Heaven.
Ruth Ann: But Christians do, Lord. They believe in You and Heaven.
Jesus: But not all would be willing to die for Me. That is where you are wrong.
Ruth Ann: I'm sorry, Lord. I guess I am naive, as You say.
Jesus: You have much to learn, but that is what I am here for. Now go about your day. Know how much I love you, little one. My peace is with you.
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 July 5, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for the peace that I've felt yesterday and today. Please let this continue.
Jesus: Little one, it is up to you to keep your peace. It is always available to you through the grace of God. It is you who allow the concerns of the world to come in and disturb your God-given peace.
Ruth Ann: You are right, Lord. And I still thank You for Your help.
Jesus: Little one, I am here for all of you, all of the time. Each one of you tries so hard to run your own life, making all your own decisions. You think you are in control. Don't you realize, at the blink of an eye, I can end your life, and all things you thought were so important to your life, would no longer be of concern to you. That is why I continue to say, put Me first, and all things will then fall into place. Man still hasn't learned to do this. Mankind still frets over the things and problems of the world as though this is going to bring about his eternal salvation. If only My children would concern themselves with those things of a spiritual nature as well, or even as much, I would not have to be finding so many ways to get mankind's attention.
It saddens My heart, little one, to see so many of My children wasting their time, getting bigger and better material things in this world, and ignoring the state of their soul. The more they get, the more they want, thinking these things will bring them peace and happiness. These things do not bring happiness. Knowing you are right with your Maker will bring peace and happiness. Knowing you are doing the will of your Father in Heaven brings you peace. When you have this peace and share it, those around you begin searching and re-evaluating their lives so they too, can gain this peace. Peace truly begets peace. Love begets love, and faith begets miracles.
Ruth Ann: I thought You were going to say 'faith begets faith'.
Jesus: You cannot give someone faith. You can give them hope. You can share your faith and trust in God and help them in their journey to strengthen their faith, but it is not something tangible that you can give to another. If that were the case, those of you who have such faith, would have an easy task before you. As it is, you are called to share the miracles God has worked in your life, and this helps others to find the strength and courage to begin their journey to become stronger in their love and trust in God. As their faith is strengthened, they begin to recognize the miracles that God has been working, and will continue to work, in their lives.
So that is what I mean when I say, "Faith begets miracles." Everything must be turned over to God, so He can work in your life continuously. Even in the bad times, He is working. That is when your faith and trust is truly tested. It is easy to love and trust God when everything runs smoothly in your life. It is through the difficult times that your faith is tested. Then you discover, and so do I, just how strong your faith is. If you are grounded in a strong love for Me, you are able to survive all the hardships that life has a way of bringing your way. If your faith does not have a strong or firm foundation, then it begins to crumble, and so does the world around you.
Faith is extremely important. Those who have it are truly blessed. It is a God-given blessing, that continues to be cultivated throughout your entire life. Those who put their God first realize this, and continue to thrive when everything around them seems to be falling apart. Then, faith and peace continue to radiate to those around them. Those who do not have this faith fall apart when their world falls apart, because they have let the world and the material things of the world be their god. I continue to say, "Put Me first, and all other things will fall into place."
That is what I am saying to all of My children again, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one can come to the Father except through Me." My Mother continues to tell Her children, "Come to Jesus." She has the wisdom of the ages. God is allowing Her to work in the lives of His children, again and again. Just as She brought forth Her Son 2000 years ago, He is allowing Her again to bring Him forth into the world. Take heed My children, listen to Her, listen to Me. There is great need of this faith, love, and peace in this world. Trust in God. His plan is about to unfold. Prepare for the Second Coming of your Jesus.
Ruth Ann: These words appear very strong, Lord.
Jesus: Child, they are of the utmost importance. So many of My children continue to search for signs and wonders, looking for a specific date of the Second Coming of Christ the King, when in fact they should realize the time is nearing, and the most important thing they can do is gather in prayer. Strengthen the faith and trust in God of those around you, by witnessing to the greatness and goodness of His love and mercy in your lives. In doing so, you will be doing what I would have you do.
Many of you experience miracles, but do not share. You hide your light under a bushel. The light goes out, and is never seen again. Witness to the greatness and goodness of these miracles in your life. Know that God is, was, and always will be here, for all of His people. Those of you chosen to share and go forth among His people, as in the days of old, are like a light that shines forth in this time of darkness. You are a saving light, to draw others closer and closer to Me. Continue to be this beacon. Draw My children back to Me.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, for these words.
Message of Sept. 12, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, there is so much going on today. Please help me get everything done that needs to be done today.
Jesus: Little one, it will be so. However, that is not your real reason for wishing to speak with Me, little one. I have already told you, I will be with you. I am always with you. You need only ask for My guidance and assistance. I am there always for all of My children. They need only to seek and they will find Me. Again I say, blessed are those who do not see and still believe. Your rewards will be great in Heaven.
You have been told My Mother is here on this land. This is holy ground, blessed by God. All things are being done according to God's choosing. You have been chosen for this special gift that requires great faith. You have been given a healing because of this faith. Now those who come here to pray and receive the graces provided by My Mother too, are chosen. I have said, and so has My Mother, that only those who My Mother has invited, come here to pray. She is choosing those who are serious about helping Her achieve the end of the reign of the evil one on the earth. Many hearts are being touched, and those who are faithful are given great graces to sustain them through the difficult times to come.
You have been told your ministry is to change soon. Much more is needed to get the attention of My children. There is much suffering ahead for a stubborn world that continues to turn its back on God. Your faith has been of great help to Me, child. It has been of great help to those who continue to watch you for direction. You are to be a model for My children to imitate.
Ruth Ann: Lord, this can't be. I'm a sinner. You don't want Your children to follow My example. Please don't say this to me.
Jesus: Little one, it is your faith and trust in God that continues to sustain you through all you do. The messages you share, the talks you give, the prayers you pray for others, all that you do and say, has been done in faith. You were asked to give up your career, your home, your very life, to share with others. You have given all to Me. You have said, "Your Will be done, Lord." Your simple 'yes' to the will of God will bring about the salvation of many. Yes, it has cost you much. Your privacy is gone, but in giving much, much will be returned to you.
You must not feel slighted because you are not having apparitions of My Mother. That was not to be your gift. You will see Me though, child, when the time is right. I will come to you, and ask you to carry My Cross. All will know you are of Me, and that I have been here. Because you have been true and faithful in little things, much more is to be required of you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am not sure of what You are saying. I wish You would speak clearly, so I knew exactly what it is You are saying to me.
Jesus: Little one, have I not always given you clear direction when it has been needed?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: The direction you need in your life will continue to be given to you. I will continue to speak to you when there is a need. My Mother will do the same.
Message of October 27, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, there are so many questions I wish You would answer. I know better than to ask. You would only tell me the following, 'those things I would have you know will be revealed to you when it is time'.
Jesus: You are right, little one. Those things I would have you know are being revealed to you as there is a need. Otherwise, you must continue to walk your journey with faith and trust in your God, that He will tend to all your needs. Each revelation you have been given has come to pass, has it not?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: Then continue to trust in your Jesus. Continue to listen, and do those things asked of you, and watch the fruits of your labor continue to multiply. Your efforts are producing many good fruits. Be at peace with the gift you have been given to share. Those who come here find a peace they cannot find in other places. Many have received special graces and blessings from Me and My Mother, as a result of coming here in faith to pray. This is all being made possible because of the love of your God. He is allowing all of these blessings and graces. This would not have been possible without your simple 'fiat'.
When you become discouraged or concerned about the future, you may look back and see how far you have come. You have come from a world of darkness to a world of light. In being brought into the light, you have had the desire placed on your heart to help those of My children who also are in need of light. Look at all the good fruits being produced by your listening and sharing of your blessings with others. How can you ever have doubts as to what is to come, or what you are doing? There is no doubt, little one. God's plan will not be stopped. His will, will be done.
The evil one continues to try to destroy those who are of God, and those who try to do the will of God. The strong in faith, and love for Him, survive, and go on to do even greater things. Those who do not have the faith continue to fall by the wayside. Remember the parable about the seed, and that seed taking root? The seeds that are strong, with strong roots planted in the deep soil, survive. The others do not. Faith and trust, child, are the answers. Those who have the faith to stand steadfast in their convictions, and the love of their one true God, survive. Those who do not have this faith, walk away.
Be at peace, child. God will use the pain and suffering, endured through trials, for His greater honor and glory. Take it one day at a time. Those things that are to be, will be. I have My hand upon all that is being done in your life, and on this farm. My Mother has chosen it as a special place to pour forth the graces needed for Her homeless. She has said to you this building was to shelter Her homeless. You did not understand Her words, nor the sadness in Her voice, at the time these words were spoken. Your priest has made these words become clear to you, little one.
The words that are revealed to you, continue to write down, and they will be made clear to you as the need arises. These words are prophecy, little one. Sometimes you do not understand the mean-ing, but it all becomes clear to you in time, God's time. It is your faith and trust that is important. Continue to walk this journey with Me, and watch all that has been revealed to you unfold. God will tend to all your needs, and the needs of those around you.
Continue to walk in faith, and trust in your Jesus. Sometimes that faith and trust brings pain and sad-ness. It also brings growth and strength. The results are all that is of concern to your God. The strength and growth in your love for God is the end result of all that has happened. That is the result of those who continue on in their journey of faith. Those who seek the face of God and wish to do His will, will find the strength and courage to walk My walk. That walk is the walk to Calvary. That walk is through pain, persecution, and the feeling of abandonment. I have felt it all. And so too, will My children, who are willing to follow in My footsteps.
Do not lose heart, little one. Those who pick up their cross and follow Me have much to suffer, but in the end the rewards are greater than the human mind and heart can conceive. Be at peace, little one, and know these rewards await all those who do the will of God. Trust Me, little one, and know God is watching over all things great and small.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I am at peace.
Jesus: God loves you and blesses you. He will tend to all things.
