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 December 1, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: There is a great need, little one. My children have found something missing in their lives. That 'something' is peace. Many are finding that peace here, and in places such as this. This place has been chosen to be set aside by Me and My Mother as a source of renewal. This haven, blessed by God for the use of His people, will continue to be a source of peace, grace, and blessings for all those who come here in faith to pray. You, child, have been chosen to take a stand for the good God is doing and continues to do in your life. You have been chosen child, to witness to others so that they, too, can stand firm and steadfast in their test of faith. My children need someone who is not ashamed to say, "Yes, I believe in Jesus Christ," and "Yes, He is alive and working miracles today just, as He did two thousand years ago," and "Yes, He will work in your life for you today, just as He has in mine, if you will only let Him in."
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 conversion 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.
My Dear Children,
Why do you continue to search for a false peace in the things of the world? Don't you know that peace comes from God? Turn away from those things that do not bring a lasting peace. Turn back to My Son who is the prince of peace. Then, and only then, will you find the true peace that awaits you and will remain with you. God continues to call to you and remind you that those things of the world do not last. They bring temporary pleasures to you, and then the feeling is gone. God's peace will last forever. God loves you. Let Him draw you to His heart. Experience the love and peace He wishes you to have through the gift of His Son. Go in God's peace.
At the end of this message, Ruth Ann had the feeling that Our Lady wanted to say something else, so she said:
Ruth Ann: Is there anything You wish to add?
Our Lady: Child, no one seems to be listening. The messages are falling on deaf ears. Eventually there will be no more messages.
Ruth Ann: To me?
Our Lady: To everyone, child. I am only here for a time allowed by God. When My time is over, I will have to return to Heaven and leave My children to their own undoing. I am doing all I can for the time I am allowed. The rest is up to God and those who are listening to My call.
Jesus: This is your last day in the Holy Land. It is a land of great turmoil, child. It seeks peace and peace will not come. The minds and hearts of men prevent this peace from coming. As a result, many innocent suffer.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, it is obvious to see. There are soldiers everywhere trying to keep peace.
Jesus: My children have still to learn that peace comes from within. It is not something that can be gained through violence and bloodshed. But this is how man continuously works at peace. Man must live My com-mandments to gain peace. Once he has achieved the peace within, the peace in the world will come. Why are My children so blind? My Mother continues to warn Her children. God is warning them and they still do not listen. Renew your efforts in prayer, little one. Renew your resolve to do all My Father asks of you for the sake of this peace. There is so much pain and suffering here and in other places all over the world. Much prayer is needed for this peace that can only come from God.
Be grateful for this time given to you, little one. Be glad God has been so good to you and your country. Go from here with a new commitment and willingness to do the will of God. It is through those of you willing to give your lives so that others may live, that this peace of the heart will come to many. You do not fully understand, little one, but as time goes on, more and more will be made clear to you.
You are feeling the need to get on with your day, are you not?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, we have a schedule to follow.
Jesus: Be at peace with this. I will be speaking with you again before you leave here. Write what I am saying.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Ruth Ann: Lord, You said You wished to speak with me, You also asked that I record this and share it.
Jesus: Yes, little one, this is true. There is much I wish to say to My children. You have been given a spiritual healing while you were in the church at the sepulcher. This was a total spiritual healing, and you were told this was to give you the courage to go forth and do all God asks of you. Do you not feel a resolve to do this?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I do. It's as though I'm resigned to do whatever comes. Not like before, because I have to and see no way out, but I feel a need to do these things. I still realize my unworthiness, but I have the knowledge that You are the healer and wish to use me as You see fit to help Your children. And yes, there is a peace with this I didn't have before. Please continue to strengthen me, Lord, so I can be of help to all those You send in my path. It's okay, whatever.
Jesus: Little one, in the Chapel of the Resurrection you felt the power of the Holy Spirit come down upon you in a mighty way. This was the moment I lifted this tremendous burden of fear and doubt from you. This does not mean that you will always be at peace with all you do, and are asked to do. But it does mean you have been given an understanding you did not have before. I have placed a desire for you to go forth in love and peace to minister to My people.
Ruth Ann: I feel it, Lord. This is the third Sunday weekend. The weather is nice and I'm sure there will be many people here. I also have a better understanding of the plight of the people in the Holy Land. Before, I felt so far removed. Our guide brought the feeling of the people alive in my heart.
Jesus: Pray for peace in the hearts of all those in My land of birth, death, and resurrection. They wish peace and continue to live in unrest. I have wept for My children, for I could see all that was to come after My dying on the cross. I still continue to weep for them, as does My Mother. I know you feel in your heart it seems hopeless, but through prayer, God can do anything that would seem impossible to man. You have to work from the inside out, just as a wound must heal in such a way so that it be made truly well again, so too, must My children all over the world experience a healing from deep inside the heart. Once the healing comes, then a lasting peace will come to the earth.
My stubborn children must listen and pray. A surface peace will not heal a deep wound. The healing will only be temporary, and in a matter of time, the wound again will fester and break open and the process will begin anew. Much prayer and sacrifice is needed from those of My children who are listening and willing to make these great sacrifices.
You My child, have much work to do. You have gone on a pilgrimage to better understand the problems that exist all over the world. You did not realize this, but each time your mind and heart has been opened a little further to help you realize the importance of what you need to do for God's people. Prayer can bring peace, little one, a lasting peace. The kind of peace that is total and complete. Healings from the inside out. This is truly the only kind of peace that is important, God's peace. As man continues to cause more and more unrest in the world for each other, those who have this inner peace and healing will not be affected in a negative way. Those of My children who understand the importance of prayer and peace will be able to continue on in a world filled with unrest and turmoil. Those of My children will be more ready to make sacrifices of all kinds to help this feeling of inner peace come to those who are in need.
Little one, continue on. Share My words. Share My peace. Pray with and for those who are in need. Minister to My people.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am only one person, but I'll do the best I can. Stay with me throughout each day, Your Mother too, and St Joseph. Today is St Joseph's feast day. Wish him a happy feast day for me. I feel he gets so little recognition.
Jesus: I will extend these wishes to him, and you are right. He is a powerful intercessor, and very special to God. He would not have been chosen as protector for Me and My Mother had God not had great love for him. Your husband should look to him for strength in the times ahead. Now, you must get on with your day. You have just returned from the Holy Land and you are not yet rested. You will receive the strength you need to get through this busy weekend. Go in My peace to love and serve your God.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
My Dear Children,
Thank you for responding to My call. Prayer is much needed in your land. The evil one continues to interfere in all I wish to accomplish through each of you. He continues to distract and discourage you in your prayer life. Do not let this happen, little children. Focus on My Son and the needs of your world. Come to Me, come to My Son. We wish to strengthen you and your life of prayer. Shut out the world and all the distractions, if only for a few minutes each day. Pray from the heart. This will bring you peace. Through this peace, you will touch the hearts of others who are in need of this peace. Think of the beatitudes, little children. Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God. Peace begins in your hearts. Pray, dear children, pray!
My Dear Children,
I come to you bearing a message of love and peace. I am your Mother and I wish for each one of you to have peace in your heart. Little children, unless each of you has peace in your heart, it cannot come to the whole world. Man continues to wish for peace, but all around him is turmoil and pain. This is not of God. He wishes only good things for His children. The evil one continues to work his way into the hearts of those who do not wish to accept the love and peace that is offered by a God Who loves you. Be loving and caring children. Do not let darkness influence your lives. Seek out the light. Seek out the peace that can only come from God. Then, and only then, can peace come to your world. God loves you and I love you. Go in His peace.
My Dear Children,
Again dear children, I call you to peace and love. How can there be unity in My church unless there is love in your hearts for one another. Therefore, little children, you must pray for the ability to achieve this peace. I am your Mother, and I wish to help you, but I cannot help you if you do not listen to what I am saying. Stay focused on My Son, Prince of Peace, God of Love. Do not be afraid. It does not matter if the entire world should crumble around you and fall into darkness. Pick up your cross and follow in the footsteps of My Son. He is your example. Listen to My words. Be at peace with one another.
Ruth Ann: Mother, You seem quite concerned about our peace.
Our Lady: Child, without the peace that comes from within, there can be no peace anywhere. Peace can only come when you stay focused on My Son. Love can only come when there is peace. See how it all fits? When the peace is disturbed, you can be sure it has come about by the one who is of darkness. Do not allow him to drag you down. Complete abandonment to the will of God is of the utmost importance to those who wish to do His will. This is not easy, but you have not been told that this would be easy. It is never easy to take up your cross and follow in the footsteps of My Son. But even though there is much difficulty in doing so, there can be peace attained that can only be of the One Who created you. That is why I have said to you, "The world can crumble around you and fall into darkness, but the peace of Jesus Christ can still be in you."
It matters not what others say or think of you. What matters is what God thinks. It is difficult for man to realize this, because he lives in the world. You can live in the world, and not be of the world. This is what is asked of you during this time when Satan has control of your world. This is not what man wishes to do. Man gets caught up in all those things around him which disturb his peace.
Pray, dear children, that God will touch and break open the hearts of those who need to be aware of their wrong doing. You will never convince them of their misguided efforts to harm one another. They will only disturb your peace. Prayer is the answer. Pray for one another. Know I am praying with you, so that you can achieve all that God wishes of each one of you. Be at peace with the words I am saying to you. Seek peace.
Ruth Ann: Mother, can you achieve peace and still fight against an injustice being done? What is the answer?
Our Lady: Child, there are many injustices in your land. That is why I have been calling so many to prayer. Of course you must fight against these injustices, but it must be done orderly, and in a peaceful manner. My Son came into the world to be the perfect example of One Who wished to bring about peace and change in the hearts of those who were not of peace. It was not an easy task, because those who were full of darkness did not accept either the peace or the change of heart that He brought with Him where ever He went. But that is not the important part. He brought the peace. He exposed them to this peace. It was their choice to accept it.
Many chose not to accept it. This is the case of all who wish to fight against injustice. You can do what you can to bring about change and justice, but it is up to those who are bringing about these wrong doings to have a change of heart. Many times this can only come about through the grace of God.
That is why prayer is of the utmost importance, child. That is why I call so many to pray together in special places. There is power in prayer, and the more I can call together, the louder and stronger the voice. God must be aware there are still those on the earth who love Him and appreciate all He has done for them. He must be shown this love and appreciation He deserves and desires. You are thinking, 'But God knows all things, why must He be shown'? Child, your husband and your children love you, but don't you enjoy from time to time being told and shown this love by special words or gestures?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother, You are right. I understand what You are saying.
Our Lady: So, too, does God the Father wish to be thanked and shown this love that is in the hearts of those who wish to do His will.
Ruth Ann: So what You are saying is, we should fight against injustice, but do so in a peaceful manner?
Our Lady: Follow the example of My Son, and you cannot go wrong.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for reminding us of the power of prayer, and to thank God for all He does and has done for us. There are so many things we need to change, and so many people in need of prayer.
You do your part, leave the rest to God. Trust, little child.
Trust in the greatness and goodness of your Lord and Savior. Now go in
the peace of My Son, serve Him to the best of your ability.
Our Lady: She will be healed in God's time.
Our Lady: The words I am saying to you are not new. I continue to tell you to be at peace, and still the hatred and unrest in your world continue. Peace cannot be achieved where darkness is so much a part of your lives. You have choices to make. That is the way of God. That is the way of a free will. The choices you are making are not of God. You still wish to be in the world. You still wish to be of the world.
Again, I am telling you, you cannot have two gods. You must make a choice to serve God, and turn away from all those things that hold you back from achieving your salvation. Be at peace with one another. You are bringing about so much pain and suffering through your selfish desires. You must find peace and forgiveness in your heart, for those who hurt you and do you harm. It is easy to love those who love you, but the test is being able to love those who have no love for you in their heart. You are your brother's keeper. You must love one another, and care for one another. Pray for those who do you harm. They are in need of conversion, and so are you, if you cannot find forgiveness in your heart.
My Son has set the supreme example for you. If you are to follow in the footsteps of My Son, then you must accept the pain and suffering that He endured. This is not easy, little children, but God has not promised you 'easy'. He has promised you the rewards of eternal life.
I am your Mother, and My love for you is great. I wish to help you, in any way I can, to achieve the peace that you desire in your heart and in your world. Give all your hurts, pain, and anger to God. He can change your heart and renew your spirit. He desires good things for you and your world. Please listen to what I am saying to you, and live these words. These words are only a repeat of what My Son has spoken when He was on the earth. God's children did not listen then, and they are not listening now. For those of you who are listening, please pray for My intentions to be realized, and pray for peace. God's peace is necessary before any other peace can be achieved in your world. My Mother's mantle continues to surround you. You must pray.
Ruth Ann: Mother, is there anything else You wish to add?
Our Lady: It has all been said, child. There is great sadness in My heart for those who continue to turn their back on God, and refuse to acknowledge the importance of My being here. Man is so caught up in the ways of the world, he continues to accumulate wealth and satisfy his evil desires. Therefore, he has a lack of concern for the soul.
Man does not live on bread alone. True, man must earn a living, but there is a difference between earning a living, and being obsessed with material things and the pleasures of a selfish heart. Man must realize that God is his salvation, and not the things of the world. Only God, and the love of God, can bring true happiness. Worldly things can be removed in the blink of an eye. God's love and your soul last forever. Is it any wonder that, as your Mother, I am concerned for you? Accumulate much wealth, little child, the wealth of love and mercy that can only come from God. Then you will achieve the peace that My Son and I desire for you.
My Dear Children,
I wish to thank you for gathering together in prayer. 'Be it done to Me according to Thy word'. These words were spoken by Me to God the Father many years ago. Now it is time for these words to be repeated. God has allowed Me to come to the earth to minister to His children to draw them away from the world and back to His Son. He has allowed Me to speak to, and through, many of His chosen ones. Soon the messages you have been receiving here will cease. I must decrease and My Son must increase.
I have come to point the way to My Son. Those of you who have listened and taken to heart the words being spoken to you, have been of great help to Me with your prayers. These prayers must continue. Many of My children are still in need of conversion. Many of My children feel that because they attend the church of their choice weekly, they are not in need of conversion. There is more to conversion than going to church. A true conversion comes when you have decided to follow Jesus, no matter what the price.
You were created by God for a reason. Many of you forget this. You were put on the earth to know, love, and serve God, and to be happy with Him in Heaven for all eternity. Many of you do not know God. Many do not love Him as your Supreme, Divine, Creator of all things. Many of you do not serve Him. How can that be? It is reflected in the way you treat one another. Love God and your neighbor as yourself for the love of God. It is the greatest of all commandments. These are not just words, dear children, these are a blueprint for your salvation.
The words I have spoken to you over and over, are words that have been spoken to you before. I have not been giving you any new revelations. God has been good to you. He loves you and wishes for you to find peace in your heart, lives, and world. Peace will not come to a world filled with hatred for one another. Change your hearts. Find forgiveness in your hearts for all those who do you harm. Love one another. Be at peace with one another. Then, and only then, can a true conversion begin in your heart. I wish this peace for you. God wishes this peace for you. Pray, dear children, for God's mercy to be given out in abundance to all those who choose to ignore Him and blatantly flaunt their sinfulness in His face.
God is a God of mercy, but He is also a God of justice. As any good parent should do, He must discipline those who continue to live their lives doing only those things that are bringing them pleasure, and ignor-ing the feelings of others. In using your free will, many of you have made choices, not for God, but instead you have chosen to live your lives according to the world. Your world is full of evil. It is full of darkness. You must choose to live your lives following the example of His Son and My Son, Jesus. This is the supreme example put before you for your good. God loves you and I love you. You must pray!
Ruth Ann: Mother, the message was quite lengthy. You have said the messages are to end. I was expecting a short message to begin preparing us for the removal of the messages.
Our Lady: These things needed to be said, child. Many who will be here today, and those who will read these words later, will realize the seriousness which I intend to convey in this message, and the messages that are forthcoming. The time will come when My children will no longer have these words put before them. They will be at a loss, for many have lived for the messages, and not lived the messages. It is time for them to begin living the words that have been spoken to them from Heaven. If My children would only take to heart the words being spoken, they would not be in torment. They would be at peace with their lives, and at peace with one another.
Man chose to ignore the words of My Son two thousand years ago, and man still continues to ignore these same words today. Man has chosen through his free will, the wrong choice. He chooses the way of the world, and finds himself farther and farther away from God. In choosing to follow the wrong path, he finds himself bogged down in the muck and mire of sin. Choose for God, little children. He can draw you out of this muck, mire, and darkness, and into the light. Then you will have peace in your hearts. With peace in your hearts, there can be peace in your world. This peace can only come from God, little children. Choose to do the will of the One Who created you. He wants only good things for you. Be at peace with what I am saying to you. Be at peace with one another.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for these words.
