Message of March 1, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus.
Jesus: Yes, child.
Ruth Ann: Please speak with me. I feel so down.
Jesus: Little one, it is not necessary for you to feel this way. 'Down' is not of Me.
Ruth Ann: I know, Lord. Please help me.
Jesus: I am always here to help all of My children. You are without My peace. This is so because you have not taken the time to be with Me in spirit. You have not taken the time to listen to Me. You are busy with worldly things.
Ruth Ann: You are right Lord, but most of them, or all of them, have been things that needed to be done. I love You Lord, but I find so little time to spend with You, and it is making me very sad.
Jesus: I know, little one, you lose My peace when other things are put before Me.
Ruth Ann: There is much sadness in my life right now, the loss of a dear friend and the need to help the family remain, and I have lost two relatives in the past week. Much of this brings back the death and loss of my parents. I am sorry Lord, but even though I realize they are with You it still brings back childhood memories, when life was not so complicated.
Jesus: Not so complicated for whom, though? Life has always been complicated for My children. Your parents did not have an easy life. It is just that they did not complain. They accepted their crosses because they knew it was God's will.
Ruth Ann: I am sorry Lord, I do not mean to complain. I truly feel sad. There is so much pain and suffering in the world, and so many come to me for prayer, for they feel I am closer to You and Your Mother, and You will hear my prayers more clearly, and answer them as though You would grant me a favor that You would not grant them. That saddens me, Lord. I know You love all of us the same, and will answer all our prayers.
Jesus: Little one, you have found favor with God, and it is true that those who find favor with God are granted special graces to pray for others. These graces are necessary to all God's children, so that their prayers can be heard. Why do you at times pray to special saints for special favors? It is because you feel these favors will be taken directly to God with no delay. It is like having a lawyer plead your case before a judge. That person has the skill to plead your case. It has been proven so. In your case, child, it too, has been proven. Others have seen that you listen and you have heard the word of God and, too, you have found favor with God. It has been proven through the visions, miracles, and healings you and others have received as a result of your prayer and obed-ience. So even though you do not wish to accept this special honor bestowed upon you by God, as such, it is so. So when someone calls or comes to you for prayer, continue to do as you have done. Take it to your heart.
You feel others pain and suffering, and it is because you are a very sensitive child. I would have it no other way. God sees your tears and feels your pain for others. He takes it to His heart. It is precious to Him, little one. He wishes all His brothers and sisters to love each other as you do.
Child, you feel this to be a terrible burden. Are not all crosses burdens? This is only the tip of the iceberg, so to speak, little one. Not only will the graces flow from you, for and to others, so that God will grant them special favors, but the crosses and burdens will become heavier and more burdensome, little one. That is why it is so important to be in constant unity with Me. With Me, nothing will be too great for you to handle. I am strength and peace. I am life. I am graces. I am your Jesus. With My hand in yours, you and I can walk any path, no matter how steep, how narrow, or how rocky. Together, we can do all things. Without Me, you can do nothing.
See how important your life with Me is? See how important your life is to Me? See how important it is for others to know you and call on you for prayer?
Ruth Ann: But Lord, You are making me out to be someone of greater importance.
Jesus: You have been given a special gift. It is so. As you pray for others, I am there with you. So is My Mother. As you touch others in prayer, I too, touch them. Is that not a special grace? So yes child, these truths that have been told to you this day are 'for real.' You do not wish to feel important, and this is good. God loves your humility. That is why He loves you so much. You continue to be untouched by your importance to Him.
Ruth Ann: It is because I realize all my faults and how truly worthless as a human being I am. I feel like a 'low-life', Lord. I am a 'low-life'.
Jesus: Little one, without God, all human beings are 'low-life'. You are growing in leaps and bounds by realizing your unworth-iness. This is what God requires of His chosen ones before they can truly be used. It is at this point He can begin to work wonders among His people, because you realize that He is the true giver of life, spiritual, physical, emotional, all life.
Little one, even the very learned do not realize truths that you accept as part of your everyday life. God is the beginning and the end. Without God, man can do nothing. Even prayer, without God, is not of help to anyone. It is prayer from the heart that God listens to, child, so do not hesitate when called on for prayers for others. Pray, child. God is listening, and He will answer your prayers. Sometimes it is not in the way you would wish, so you do not feel that your prayers are any more important than any other person's prayers. Some prayers are answered in such a way that it brings sadness to you, but maybe in bringing sadness to you, it has brought great joy to God. Which is more important, your happiness, or God's?
Ruth Ann: You know what my answer is, Lord. I can cry many tears and have much pain in my heart for others, but I truly wish to make You happy. I want to do Your will, however difficult it may be. As long as You are with me, and continue to love me, what more can I ask for? Lord, I love You.
Jesus: Child, I love you. Have you regained your peace?
Ruth Ann: You know I have, Lord.
Jesus: Now you will have a better day because you have taken the time to be with Me and listen. Little one, this is important for your growth and what is to come. Others are aware of what is before you. You continue to be in awe and unaware. This is good, little one. This is something else that makes you special to Me. Go in My peace, little one, I am with you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of May 22, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus, will You please help me?
Jesus: I am here, little one.
Ruth Ann: My mind is in such turmoil and I feel such sadness. I just wish I could be a tiny child and someone else could care for me and take all this pain away. I want to help You and Your Mother but this is so difficult for me. I've been trying to tell myself I'm only sharing those things that have been given to me by God. All the many blessings and miracles You've brought into our lives as a family are special and should be shared with others. I know I need to witness and give testimony because those same kinds of things helped build my faith. Why then is it so difficult for me?
Jesus: Little one, there are many reasons. You don't like being singled out. You don't like being in front of the crowd. You don't like the feeling of being more important and more special than those around you. You wish to remain as one of the crowd, and it is difficult for this to be, when you have been given special graces and miracles to share with others. That automatically puts you in the center of focus. Those who are not hearing My words, those who are not hearing the words of My Mother, wish to know what We are saying. Little one, how else can they know unless those who are being spoken to share what they are hearing? You are humble and will remain so. God wishes this of you. He has chosen you for this purpose because He knows your heart and knows whatever He says to you, and does for you, will not change your childlike faith or the way you receive what He is doing for you, and what He is using you for. If for one moment He thought it would change you, then you would not be of such importance to Him. God is your Creator, little one. He has formed you since the beginning of time. He knows your heart because He has made you in this way for His purpose. He also knew you would say 'yes' to His will, even though it is extremely difficult for you to do, you continue on. This is a difficult cross for you to bear. For others who would want to be in the center of focus, or in the limelight, as you would say, He does not ask such of these. This would not be good for their spiritual welfare. God wishes His chosen ones to be humble. You child, are humble. You also feel the pain of others. This is as Christ felt on the earth. This makes it difficult to turn back or away.
You have been told that if you witness and pray with others, they will receive special graces, healings and many miracles of all kinds. It makes it extremely difficult for you not to witness, for you wish to serve your Maker and bring others closer to Him. You wish those who come for prayer to receive whatever God is wanting them to receive through you. This puts you in turmoil child, because this makes it very difficult. But remember this, God does not ask His children to do anything, or give up anything, that He will not give back to you a hundredfold. Anything you do for others in witnessing, and in ministering to His people through prayer, will be given back to you and your loved ones one hundredfold. God is not to be outdone. You do realize that, child. God will not be outdone in gifts, rewards, and special graces. Does this not help ease your pain, little one? I am your Jesus. I understand all you are saying. I too, found it difficult to minister to My people here on the earth, not for the same reasons you are experiencing. My concern was, they were not listening to Me. Those you will be speaking to, will be listening to you, because they will be sent to you by special invitation from Me and My Mother. They have been tapped on the shoulder and told, "Go, hear My little one witness that God is alive! He is alive and He is working miracles in the lives of all those who believe!" So little one, you are at an advantage. I am bringing these children to you, as is the love of My most precious Mother. All those who come and hear, all those for whom you pray, will receive special graces, healings of all kinds. Each life will be touched in some way. Does this not ease the pain and the burden that is put before you? It is indeed a heavy cross for you. For others it would be considered a blessing. God works in mysterious ways in order to perform His mighty wonder.
Now child, I know you are feeling peace. It is nothing to the peace and joy you will feel at this time tomorrow. Not only because of the burden being removed temporarily, until your next talk, but because you have done the will of My Father. You will have done again what you were put on this earth to do; to witness to My children that He is here, He is alive, He wishes to give you, His children, love and peace. Now child, you have things to do. Do them in prayer. Know I am with you and will not desert you in your hours of need. What you will say this night has already been prepared by God. All you need do is be there and speak His words to His people. Die of self, so He can use you in the fullest capacity possible. Let the words flow from your lips and mouth child, for they are straight from the One Who created you. Be not afraid, this burden is lifted from you. Trust, little one, trust and be obedient. God's children are wanting to be touched and blessed by His words and His blessings.
Ruth Ann: Thank You Lord.
Ruth Ann: I wish to speak with You, Jesus.
Jesus: Little one, I am here.
Ruth Ann: I have had a difficult week Lord, but again the storm is passed. Thank You.
Jesus: The storm has passed temporarily, child. It is because you have just finished a talk. You have shared what God has done in your life with just a small group, but there will be much fruit come as a result of this talk. Remember My Mother has said to you, "It is not how many you speak to, but who you have spoken to." Those hearts that needed to be touched were touched. Your friends who came to the talk, the ones chosen to minister to you, have wondered why they were there. They too, will realize in time, the worth of the sacrifice of their day spent in prayer. God has His plan. His plan is perfect.
Ruth Ann: I have to admit Lord, I did enjoy the day and meeting both priests. They both love Your Mother very much. It was also a very beautiful place. I would like to go back and visit there again.
Jesus: It is there, little one, if you wish to go. But now I wish to speak to you about all that is going on, little one.
You are not to be overwhelmed. God is using you, and your farm, and family, but it is not to cause you pain. It is a cross, yes, because you and your family are not used to so much activity around you. You prefer a quiet, simple life. That is not possible, and there will continue to be more and more activity. This is being done gradually, little one, but it is still difficult for you. What is being asked of you is a great sacrifice. Many would have turned their back and said, "No, I'm not going to make this sacrifice and disturb my life and family for anyone." You have said 'yes' to your God, but that sacrifice will be great, but so too, will be the rewards. Please realize little one, God will continually make available the graces needed to do His will. You must put your faith and trust in God.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm concerned about a message I received about a chapel on the hill.
Jesus: Discuss this with your priest. He will help you with this.
Ruth Ann: Lord, he has much going on at his parish right now. Our church is being remodeled and our school is growing, and there is expansion going on. He has much to do.
Jesus: Believe Me child, when I say this will be a labor of love for your priest.
Ruth Ann: If you say so, Lord. You know his heart.
Jesus: Yes child, this is so. Many see only his faults. I see the good he is doing and will continue to do for God, His church, and His people. Again, he loves My Mother very much and wishes Her to help him minister to his flock. Much love is in his heart for God's people. I need not say more. Continue to listen and be guided by his wisdom.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, you must realize God has a special plan for you, and His will, will be done. You cannot and will not walk away. God will work through you to achieve much on the earth. My Mother has brought you to Me at the foot of the cross and said, "Here she is. She loves Me and loves You very much. She loves all God's children. She is now ready to minister to God's people." She is not wrong, little one. She too, knows your heart.
Of course you will have difficult times, especially before a talk. You will be tortured and tormented by the little things that normally would not be of concern to you. Know that in advance, so you will be prepared for these things. Ask for prayer from those in your prayer group and those who come to pray. Many wish to be of help to you for the sacrifice you are making on their behalf, and this is something they would do willingly, child.
Do not take so much upon yourself. The burden can be lightened, child, if you will only give it all to Me. Your husband in his wisdom knows this, and continues to tell you not to worry about so many things. Listen and pray. It will all be done for you. Go about your day and life little one, do not get upset over the mechanics of it all. It is not your concern. Your concern is one of prayer, sacrifice, and sharing God's word. Others will continue to take care of the mechanics of what is being done. You are not to worry little one, that is not of Me.
Ruth Ann: Lord, again I was told You will come to me and ask me to carry Your cross.
Jesus: Yes child, you are being given a year of peace and prayer, time with your family, time to grow in the Holy Spirit, and time to prepare for My coming to you. This is all to be. The Son of the living God, your Jesus, will come to you and ask you to carry His cross.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I feel I am already carrying a heavy cross. This burden is difficult for one who chooses to be isolated from the public eye. All I have ever wanted to be Lord, was a good wife, mother, and teacher, and now, I should add, grandmother.
Jesus: Little one, you have been and are all those things, but God wishes you to also be a good sister to all His children. He wishes your help in ministering to His people. You will not be limited child, as to what God will have you do. Oh, it has been said to you, "You will do even greater things than I." It was true. You cannot begin to realize the magnitude of your mission, child. When God finds someone willing to do His will, one with great hesitation and humility, He uses them to the fullest extent of their being. Many would like to do what you are being called to do, but they would enjoy it too much, child. Because of this, they would not be believable. The more difficult the task, the more you wish to withdraw. This is a great burden to you, and those who know you, realize the weight of this burden. If it were easy for you, there would be no cross. God has not promised you 'easy,' little one. He has promised you the rewards of the eternal kingdom. All you need do child, is listen and be obedient. God will do the rest.
When you pray for someone and they do not get the healing they would want, do not take it personal. You be obedient and pray for those who ask. I will do the hard part. I am the healer, you are only an instrument. I will heal My children in the way I choose to heal them. I will answer their prayers in the way I choose to answer their prayers. My Mother and I are available at all times to listen to the needs of all My children. We are here to pray with them. We wish to lighten their burdens. Graces are waiting here on your farm to be poured out on those who ask. This is a special place chosen by God to be used as a place for dispensing graces, blessings, and miracles. All who come here in faith will receive these miracles.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for repeating this for me, Lord. I always feel so overwhelmed when someone asks me to pray and their need is great. I want their prayers answered immediately.
Jesus: For some that is possible, for others, they must wait. God's time is not man's time, God's healing is not always man's healing. This is something you must always remember, child. You can only do what God would have you do. If God chooses to work in a special way through you for someone, that is His choice. You are only to pray and do His will. He will do the rest. You are to share His word in your talks. He will touch the hearts of those He wishes to touch. Those who come to your farm to pray, are being called here by special invitation. They will not go away empty-handed. God will bless them generously for their faith and trust in Him. They will be blessed by many graces for answering the call of My Mother, the great dispenser of graces.
Ruth Ann: Is there anything else You wish to add, Lord?
Jesus: For now, that is enough. I know you have a busy day ahead of you. Be at peace, little one. God loves you. He blesses you and your family for the great sacrifice you are making on His behalf and for all His children. Know this and keep it in your heart.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of Jan. 14, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, back to the part about, 'it would not run smoothly'. I don't remember hearing these words. I remember being told, 'it will all be done for you', but I don't remember the other part.
Our Lady: Child, when you take up the cross and follow My Son, do you expect all to be easy? You were told you were not to concern yourself with the mechanics, and yet, you are finding yourself involved. Give it all to God. He is the solver of problems. Your main thrust for My people is to come from witnessing, prayer, and sharing the goodness of My Son. You are living in a time that is most difficult. Some have been so busy with their life, they have shut out the world around them and are not aware that it is full of darkness. Some are just now becoming aware of the need to turn back to God. It is through those of you willing to pray and witness that many more will be brought back to the flock. Little child, you have been in so much turmoil the past couple of days. You must learn to realize these feelings are attacks from the evil one. Do not be too proud to ask for prayer.
Ruth Ann: But everyone expects me to have all the answers, Mother, they seek answers for those who are in need of healings, both physical and spiritual. They seek answers about the many messages circulating about the end times and the chastisement.
Our Lady: What is your answer for them, child?
Ruth Ann: For those who are concerned about the end times and chastisement, I have told them to focus on Your Son and follow the things You have told us. We are to clean up our lives, and live each day as if it were our last.
Our Lady: That is exactly what I would have you tell them. What have you told those seeking physical healings and spiritual healings?
Ruth Ann: I have told them that You and Your Son have told me to pray with those who ask for prayer, and they will be given the healing that God wishes them to have. No one will be slighted who asks in faith for prayer.
Our Lady: You have been told that as you lay hands on those who come for prayer, it is the same as having been touched by God. He has asked you to be His hands and feet here on the earth. He has asked you to listen and share. These are all important things for you to remember. You cringe to have to repeat this, because you feel this is something that is nearly blasphemous. You feel unworthy to do this work that God has asked of you, but He has said to you, "If not you, then who?" You are not a prideful person. You are most humble. Humility is very important in doing the work of My Son. My Son Jesus was most humble, and so was I. It was not always easy following the will of God, but again, we have not been promised easy. We have been promised the rewards of eternal life for doing the will of the Father. That is the most important promise to His children. It has been earned through the suffering and death of His Son, My most humble and perfect of children, Jesus.
My children know that the purification of the earth is eminent, for this is to be, before My Son can come to the earth. Pray, fast, and do penance, but do not be consumed with the doom and gloom. A mother expecting her child knows that the pains of childbirth are most difficult and traumatic, but she does not focus on the labor. She focuses on the result of this painful ordeal. Otherwise, she would not be able to enjoy each day of the pregnancy. She would not anticipate the beautiful gift of life and birth. So too, it is with My children, concerning the purification of your land. Do not focus on the pains and suffering of the cleansing of your earth. Concentrate on the rebirth of your earth. Focus on the result of this cleansing, the return of My Son to a land purified by the blood of martyrs for the greater honor and glory of God. Focus on a purified earth, and the gift of My Son's Second Coming and peace that will reign for a thousand years. These are the things that My children must focus on.
The evil one would have you so afraid for what is to come, that you will despair and not be able to pray and do all that is asked of you. Children, pray for peace that can come only from God. Once you have peace in your heart, nothing else matters, bodies and things of the world are only temporary. It is the soul that matters. Keep that in mind, My children. Focus on that. That is most important, the gift of eternal salvation, the saving of your soul, to spend an eternity in praise and thanksgiving to your Creator. Be not afraid, little children. Focus on My Son who is light, love and peace. Do all that is asked of you. God will do the rest.
Now, child, go in the peace of My Son. Continue to witness to My children of His goodness and love. Bring them back to the fold, so that their lives will be changed and they will be prepared for the Second Coming of My Son.
