Ruth Ann stopped receiving Messages to share from the Blessed Virgin Mary on January 25, 1995. On February 23, 1995, Jesus also stopped giving Messages to share. Since that time both Jesus and Mary have requested that we begin to reread the Messages already given and to reflect on them. But most of all, that we begin to live the Messages that have been given.

Message of February 13, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus, would you repeat what You told me earlier this morning when I asked You why do I have to do these things, why not someone else to give these talks?  I am not even a good person.

Jesus:  Yes, little one, I will repeat what I have said.  I need you, little one, I need someone such as you to give witness to My other children who have no clue as to what I can do in their lives.  You have seen, and heard, and been witness to My many miracles.  Unless one has experience firsthand the works of God, it is difficult to give testimony.  You have seen and felt the power of God in your life and in the lives of others.

Ruth Ann:  But why must I witness to children?  They have religion teachers.

Jesus:  You too, had a religion teacher, but would you not like to have heard someone tell you that God is a God of love and mercy?  Would it not have made your life more simple if someone had said to you, God knows you are a sinner, but He still loves you?  Tell Him how much you love Him for all He has done for you, tell Him you are sorry for your sins and you will try to do better.  All will be forgotten and washed away.  The gift of confession is a special gift to His Catholic children.  The priest is Me.  He has the power to wash you white as snow, as clean as a newborn baby.  What a gift from God!

The Eucharist too, is a special gift and miracle made available to all My children, daily, on this earth.  Children, I am alive and walking among you.  Do not despair of the darkness on the earth.  I have sent you children who are of light, children who will bear witness to the works I am doing in all the lives of My children who have the faith and believe.  See what I am doing, little one?  I am sending you out, just as I have sent Peter, James, and John, and all the other apostles. You are one of them, little one.  You are a chosen one of God.  See why you must go?  I can send no one else.

Ruth Ann:  But Lord, if I would refuse, You would come up with someone else.  You are God.  I am not that important.

Jesus:  Little one, this is true.  I am God and can do all things, but you must remember, God has a divine plan.  For it to unfold, all things must fall into place.  It is time for more of the puzzle to become known to you.  That means, little one, that certain other lives must be touched so that more of what is to happen can fall into place, just as placing the right piece of a puzzle in just the right place is vital for the whole picture to be clear.  You have heard over and over, from Me, My Mother, and the Holy Spirit, 'It is time.'  You did not know what that meant.  Now, you will begin to realize as all things begin to move more quickly. 

My Mother has said She will enlighten your priest as the need would arise.  She is doing so.  Next, it will be your Archbishop, Daniel.  He too, will be made aware and will be receptive.  All of these events are important, so you, My little one, will be able to do all the work that I am going to put before you.

Ruth Ann:  Jesus, I feel You overestimate me.  I am a lowly sinner.

Jesus:  Little one, all My children are lowly sinners.  If you were all holy, there would be no need of Me, your Jesus.  There would have been no need of My death on the cross.  Remember, I have died for your sins, not others' sins.  I have died for your sins.  I have known all your weaknesses, and have known you would succumb to the temptations of the evil one.  I knew this of all My children.  You have been forgiven for all your sins, even those you have not committed this day, but will do so before the day has past.  I am the God of yesterday, today, and forever.  I Am Who Am.  These are words you do not understand, little one, but you will.

It is your faith, little one, your faith.  It far outshines the brightest star in the universe.  Your humility is a beautiful gift placed before the Throne of God, and the more you feel unworthy, the more God wishes to use you.  The more you feel the need to hide, the more God wishes to place you before all His children to shout, "See God's children, see what I am doing for the very least among you?  If I will do it for her, the very least, then I will do it for you."  Do you see what I am doing in your life?  Do you see the magnitude of the task before you?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, it humbles me that You would use me in this way.

Jesus:  Little one, you will be traveling to places you have never seen before, talking before people you have never dreamed of witnessing to, and praying over the most helpless and needy of all My children.  The magnitude of what you will be doing has not yet occurred to you, but it has to many around you.  You are an apostle of the new times, and the end of the old.  You are to bring good news to My children.  Your grandmother had spoken of wanting to witness to God's children, and you were concerned about the fact that it would have embarrassed you. You will reach a point in your life, little one, when you will live to witness to My good works.  The more pain and suffering you see in the world, the more you will want to help Me with My work here on earth.  You are My body here on the earth.  You are My eyes, ears, hands, feet, and most of all, My love and peace.  As you touch and bless others in My name, I will be there with you.  It will be as though I have touched them because you are being used by Me.  You will perform many, many miracles of the flesh.  But the most beautiful, little one, will be the healings of the spirit.

I wish to thank you for being obedient and listening even though you do not understand always what is being said to you.  Continue to be obedient.  This is a special gift, your locutions.  It will be a mixed blessing to you and your family, because those on the earth do not understand.  I am with you, and so is My Mother, and now you have someone else to help.  She has said to you, "We will help each other."  She will pray with and for you, and you can tend to her needs here on the earth.  You had no idea how prophetic her words were.

Now I know you must be on your way.  Go to love and serve your God.  Do not force your prayer, but do you not feel like you would like to spend some time reading My word?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, thank You for this hunger.  I love You.

Jesus:  I love you and give you My best blessing and peace.

Ruth Ann:  I feel it Lord, already.

 

Message of August 6, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus.

Jesus:  I am here, little one.  Little one, bless you for listening.  You have been having a difficult time.  This need not be the case.  Your Jesus is here for you.  You feel overwhelmed by the demands placed upon you.  This need not be the case.  Little one, remember how you need encouragement in this, your mission, and this will help you in being patient with those around you.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, it's just that so many people continue to ask me for advice about their personal lives.

Jesus:  Little one, you will be told only those things that God wishes you to know.  They too, can hear the voice of God and My Mother in their prayer.  God answers all prayer.  It is their responsibility to listen and be patient.  There will be much demand for these answers placed upon you, your gift, and your time.  You need only decline, child.  You cannot be all things to all people.  This is only possible with God.  He can do all things and be all things to His people.  Your priest has told you, you must keep your peace, so have I.  God's people will completely take over each hour of your life if you allow them;  not because they wish to harm you, but they wish to be close to someone who is bringing the light of God into their lives.  So you must be patient little one, but you must be firm.  You must let them know that My Mother is not to be bothered with mundane things.  They too, can pray and get answers.  You are not a fortune teller.  You are a child of God, blessed with a special gift.  You have been told this gift has been given to you because God knows you will not abuse it.  You do not ask mundane questions for yourself or your family.  Why should you do it for others?   And too, you feel burdened concerning the mechanics of all that is being done on your farm.  Child, you are not to be concerned about these things.  That is why you have been sent helping hands along the way.  They are to make the decisions that are to beautify your farm for Me and for My Mother.  Child, remember, in all you do and say, you must focus on Me.  This will help to lighten your burden.  Others will come to know that God only speaks those things to you that He wishes you to hear.  Sometimes it is through My Mother, sometimes the Holy Spirit, sometimes it is through your priest.  But God makes sure you hear what He wishes you to hear. 

You do not have to ask questions for others.  This is not your gift, and you are not to abuse your gift in this way.  When someone asks you to ask My Mother a question, tell them, "She only tells me those things She wishes me to hear."  Be kind and be gentle, and tell them you will join them in prayer for their answers.  They need only listen, and they too, will be spoken to.  Sometimes it is through others they will receive their answers, or some special sign, but all God's children must listen and be attentive to the answers given them.  They are not to depend upon those such as you to have their questions answered. 

You are to listen to Me and My Mother.  You are to share the words and blessings that have been given to you.  You are to pray and prepare for My coming.  That is all you are responsible for at this time.  Listen to the instructions given to you and share all with your priest.  He has been given much wisdom, and will do great things for Me and My Mother.  Know this is true, child.  Be not afraid, and do not be overwhelmed.  The graces are here for you, and so is the peace needed to get through the trying times ahead.  I am that peace.  You are not to feel pressured to listen to Me. 

God knows you have a family and that you have much to do.  That is why He has provided this year for you to grow and be with your family, without the daily pressure of your job.  He does not wish to take anything from you, and He realizes you will miss teaching, but the graces you will earn as a result of doing His will, the will of God, will earn you much peace.  Your weekends are full, so you must have time through the week for prayer and family.  That time is to be for you.  Speak with Me child, even when you do not have the time to write down what I am saying to you.  It is most important that you do this.  It is easy to lose sight of the peace given to you child, in a world filled with noise and things that are not of Me.  That is why it is so important to receive the Eucharist on a daily basis.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is extremely important.  The priest is 'Me' in confession.  He can return peace when your peace has been disturbed.  There are all kinds of helps along the way.  Prayer partners are available when you feel you are in need of extra prayer.  All of these things are available to all My children.  I have given man so much to help him walk the way of his cross, but he forgets, and tries to do all these things alone.  I did not put man on the earth to be alone in his journey or his sufferings.  I did not die on the cross for Me, or My Father.  I  did it for you, My children.  I did the will of My Father, but it was for you, My little ones, that My life was given up on the earth, and renewed in the Resurrection.  All of these things I have done for My children, so they can have Me to carry them through the difficulties of life.  My Mother is here during these times too, that are difficult.  She is sharing graces and signs to help them through their journey of faith.

That is what life is all about, child.  It is not success, money, big homes, cars, etc.  It is being sustained through your way of the cross, so that you too, can be resurrected in the last days, and spend eternity with Him Who has made you.  Your life here is short, but the road is long and difficult.  God sends as many helps to you along the way, that it takes to get you where He would like for you to be.  He wants you to see His will in all He does.  He wants you to call out to Him for the graces needed to complete your journey here on the earth.  His graces are there for you.   He knows your needs, but He likes for you to ask for these graces.  He also wishes to be thanked when you have been blessed with the answers to your prayers.  This is no more and no less than you would expect from one another.

Now child, I know you are busy.  These things I have told you should help you and others understand the will of God.  You are here to share what God has told you through the Heavenlies.  You are here to listen and pray for others.  You are not here to answer questions that My children would have you ask of Me or My Mother.  That is not your gift, child.  If it were, you would have no time for peace.  And it is important child, that you keep your peace, in order that you be able to pray for others and share this peace with others.  Go in My peace, little one.  You have another busy day ahead of you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

 

Message of January 10, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, give me the graces to be able to get through the next couple of weeks.

Jesus:  Little one, again I am saying to you, live one day at a time, and live that day, each day, for Me and with Me.

Ruth Ann:  I try Lord, but sometimes I am overwhelmed by all that needs to be done.

Jesus:  As I would tell all My children, I am saying to you, arrange your life in such a way that I am put first, and I will take care of all the graces and strength you need to do all that needs to be done.  Trust in Me, little one.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, that sounds so easy, but it isn't.  The physical needs get in the way, Lord, and all of my good intentions go by the wayside.

Jesus:  Child, you are too hard on yourself.  You do much for Me.  You pray daily.  You read the Scriptures.  You attend Mass daily, and receive the Eucharist.  You pray the rosary, My Mother's prayer, and tend to the needs of others.  You also offer up all your prayers, works, joys and sufferings for the poor souls daily.  So do not feel you have not put Me first.  I am part of every waking moment, just as I have told you I would be.

Ruth Ann:  That is true, Lord, even if I awaken in the night, my soul sings Your praises, and I find myself praying for the needs of others constantly, night and day.  You have told me these things many times before, but I never really could imagine all of my spare time spent in prayer, but I still continue to feel I am not doing enough.

Jesus:  As I have said before, if My children would tend to what I ask them to do, I could change them in such a way that they could be of great use to Me in saving other's souls.  You are to witness to others tomorrow night and again before the end of this month.  In doing so, many hearts and minds will be touched.  Who do you think has arranged these things?  Child, it is through your God that all these things are done.  I have not asked that you go out and knock on doors or shout it from the rooftops.  My Mother and I are tapping those on the shoulder at exactly the right time.  Those We wish to have touched will receive and answer.  No matter how big or small the group is to whom you speak, know that those who are there have been asked to be there by Me and by My Mother.  This should be of great consolation to you, little one. 

You struggle so before each talk, each prayer meeting, your third Sunday.  Know that I am God and I am in control.  Even those who come out of curiousity will not leave without being touched in some way.  To think that through the many blessings and miracles in your life shared with others, lives will be changed, and hearts will be changed.  This should bring you peace.  It is the evil one who torments you with these feelings of doubts, fear, and your lowliness. 

You are right in realizing that you are nothing with Me, little one, but you also must realize that in your nothingness you are being used for the greater honor and glory of your God.  When My Mother began speaking to you, it was to draw you to Me.  That is why She is here.  She is trying to prepare the way for Her Son.  You have listened to Her call and have done exacetly as She has asked.  Now, you must continue on, sharing what She has done in your life and continues to do with the help of God.  You must share your love and concern for others through prayer, My messages, and your talks.  Later, much more will be expected of you, but We will address those things as the need arises. 

Live each day to the fullest, loving Me with your whole heart, little one.  Let others see that love.  Minister to My people.  That is what I have spoken to you from your picture of Me in your bedroom.  You have asked for a blueprint, child, and that is not to be.  Minister to My people.  These words are words that tell you all you need to know.  Do it with love in your heart.  See Me in all you meet.  Let Me radiate to others through you.  Touch them, pray with them, be My hands, My feet, My heart and My voice, so that others know My goodness.  Do the will of My Father, as you have been chosen to do.  Much more is in store for you, little one.  Be patient and know that God is molding, strengthening, and preparing you for what is to come.

God's plans are perfect, so do not be concerned that you are unworthy, or will not measure up.  God will see to it that you are worthy and ready for all He will have you do.  Trust, child, but most of all, be patient.  Do not concern yourself with tomorrow.  Live with Me today.  Walk with Me in all you do and say.  I am here with you.  Be at peace, little one, as you go about your day.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Lord, for Your grace and reassurance.  I love You.

Jesus:  I love you, little one.

 

Message of February 8, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus, do You wish to talk to me today?

Jesus:  Yes, I would like to speak to you about what is to come.

Ruth Ann:  You mean personally to me, or to others, Lord? 

Jesus:  Little one, I am speaking now of both.  You realize that there is more to come in your prayer life, child, because when I come to you, your life will undergo a rapid change.  There will be many come to your farm who have never been here before, and there will be many seeking you out for prayer, interviews, private audiences, and others just to be in your presence.  For these things you must prepare yourself.  I have tried to prepare you on a gradual basis, but it is difficult to prepare you completely.  Just know, little one, that I will be here for you.  You will not be left alone.  Anything I will have you do will be with My help and support.  You will also have the help and support of your Mother and Mine.  The fairly simple life that you have led up till now will cease to exist.  Are you prepared for this?

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I have done everything You have asked me to do.  Also the things Your Mother has asked of me.  Should that help?

Jesus:  Yes, little one, and I thank you for being obedient and following all those things you have been asked to do.  Your prayer life has improved greatly.  You are attending Mass daily, receiving the Eucharist, going to Confession on a regular schedule, and you are reading My word, praying the rosary and many other prayers that you have been led to pray.  Your prayer groups and the prayer groups at the farm, these have all been part of preparing you for what is to come, little one.  The groups will continue to grow, little one.  The fruits that are being produced here at this place of prayer are good fruits.  Rest assured, your Jesus and your Mother are pleased with all you are doing.  God blesses those in great abundance who live their life for Him. 

I am telling you again, child, so that when the time comes you will not be overwhelmed.  Your ministry will continue to grow in leaps and bounds.  I know you do not wish to take these words seriously, and you are saying to yourself, 'We'll just have to wait and see', but your Jesus loves you and wishes for you not to be caught off guard.  Those who work with you know this already.  They see God at work in your life. 

You are living one day at a time and not looking at the 'big picture'.  Many can already see what is to come for you, and are spending much time in prayer for you.  This I have placed upon their hearts.  As you continue each day and listen to My voice and the voice of My Mother, realize that this is not the norm.  Most people do not hear Us speak.  You are, and have been, chosen to hear what We are saying because We knew you would be obedient and share, and We knew you would remain humble.  You still cannot believe that I am going to come to you and ask you to carry My cross.  This appears to be beyond your wildest dreams.  You continue to listen and write these words, but you have reservations about this particular revelation.  Why would I tell you something such as this if it were not to be so?  Why would God have put you to the test all these many years?  Why would My Mother have asked for a prayer group to be started at this particular location? 

Little one, do you not see what is coming for you and all those who know you and have been of help to you?  They know the work load is going to increase.  They, your helping hands, realize that the closeness they share with you now, will be difficult in the days to come.  The crowd will continue to grow, and so will the prayer and the time spent ministering to My people. 

It is good you have your priest.  He will keep a tight rein on all that is to happen.  He will not let your farm be turned into an unholy place.  This is an important ministry, and it must be kept with a single focus, prayer.  Along with this prayer will come peace, and graces and miracles in abundance.  But the single focus is prayer.  Praise God, praise Me, and thank all, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for the many graces and blessings being poured out upon those who come here by My Mother. 

Without the help of My Mother, many would not be brought ever closer to Me.  She is preparing Her little ones for the Second Coming, and She is being very diligent in Her effort.  Many do not realize Her importance as My Second Coming is being ushered in, but they will come to know this very special person of My Mother.  She has loved and cared and prayed for all of Her children down through the ages, and She continues to do so even today.  Her concern and love is touching to behold, little one.  You write and you listen, and you continue to share, but you doubt the importance that you are to play in the salvation of many of My children.

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, I cannot take myself too seriously.  I know me, and I do know I am a sinner.  It's difficult for me to think that You would spend any kind of time with just a 'regular person' like me.

Jesus:  You are not just a regular person.  Yes, you are a sinner, but you have been given a special gift.  Gifts are to share. This you have done.  Now, you will be given something even more beautiful, the gift of My presence and My cross. You have been entrusted with small things, and these small things have grown and produced great fruits.  Now, you shall be entrusted with even greater things.

Ruth Ann:  Whatever You say, Lord, but I am sorry it is so difficult for me to take all of this very seriously.  I love You, and I will do whatever You ask, You know that, so that isn't a problem.  It's just difficult for me to imagine You will actually come to me.  I want it to be so, but I will wait and see just what You have in mind, and You know I will do anything You ask of me, just as I've tried to do in the past.

Jesus:  That is why you have been chosen, little one, for all that is to come.  Go in My peace.  I love you.

Ruth Ann:  I love You, Lord.

 

Message of February 28, 1994 from Our Lord, Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus, is there anything in particular You would like to speak with me about today?

Jesus:  Little one, I would like to speak about the importance of the Eucharist.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I think most people realize the importance of the Sacred Body and Blood of Our Lord and Savior, and how important it really is.

Jesus:  Some do not.  It is for them that I speak.

Ruth Ann:  Then, Lord, I am listening.

Jesus:  Many still do not believe that I am there, in the Tabernacle of their churches, and a certain amount of respect and quiet should be shown to Me.  Many walk by Me and totally ignore Me.  Some turn their backs on Me, and speak with friends, and do not even notice I am there.  I wish to thank those who do acknowledge Me and show Me respect by quiet prayer or a quick visit to just say, "Hello, Jesus, I love you."  I especially am pleased at those of My children who come to spend time with Me, whether it be to just quietly be with me, or tell Me about their difficult day.  I need to be acknowledged by My children.  Many things have changed in My churches, but I want My children to know, I am still there for them.  I am still there for them in the reception of Holy Communion at daily Mass.  Nothing has changed in that respect.  It is My people who have changed.  The importance of the reception of the Sacraments and the sacramentals, all of these are still a part of your faith as Catholic Christians.  These things that are a part of your faith are a part of Me, and a part of you.  Do not lose them. 

My Mother asked for the rosary to become a part of your daily lives.  That, too, was taken away for a time.  Now, through My most Holy Mother, it is returning.  Through this prayer, and people like you who are listening and sharing these words, Satan will be defeated.  Many do not realize the importance of My Mother in the fight and the renewal of My people.  She has been allowed by God to come and minister to His children and give out blessings and graces in abundance.  She is calling Her children back to God.  Many continue to turn a deaf ear to Her and all She is saying, but She will continue to do all She can to bring back the lost sheep, until God says, 'that is enough'. 

That is why it is so important for those of you who are listening, to listen carefully, and share what is being said to you.  Spreading the word of God is of the utmost importance.  All other things will fall into place, once the lives and hearts have been touched by God. 

You, little one, have been told many times about the importance of receiving Me in the Eucharist as often as possible.  There is a strengthening in the spiritual life of those who make a practice of attending daily Mass.  There is a strengthening of those who make a practice of confessing their sins on a regular basis.  I do not get the respect I deserve, in many cases.  Many receive Me in the Eucharist with grave sins on their souls.  The importance of confessing of sins has been downplayed.  That is part of the tearing down of My Church.  Those who make a practice of receiving the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Confession, try harder to be the person they should be.  My people must return to the Sacraments, and their lives will change.  That is a promise I am making, and have made down through the ages.  Receive My Body, receive My Blood.  Confess your sins.  Obey My commandments.  Listen to My words, and the words of My Mother, in the messages being given to Her children.  She is a good Mother.  She wants only what is best for you.  She calls to you with this purpose in mind, "Come back to My Son."  What better way to do so than through the reception of the Sacra-ments?  What better way to be closer to Me, than to have Me be a part of you, in the Eucharist?

I am with you always, but what better way to be strengthened than to receive My Flesh and Blood, and be a part of the greatest miracle ever performed on the face of the earth, the miracle of the changing of the bread and wine into My Body and Blood, at the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass?  My children should be in awe of this great miracle, and wish to be present for this great miracle as often as possible.  But many are distracted to the point of ignoring what is going on at the Mass.  Some come just long enough to receive Me and leave irritated if My servant, the priest, takes too long to speak of My great love and mercy. 

It is sad, little one, that My children have strayed so far, but with help from those who really care and love Me with all of their hearts, I will find a way back into some of My children's hearts.  As I have said before, My Mother, through Her unceasing effort, continues to draw My children back through these places of peace and prayer being set up all over the world, where Her children can gather for prayer.  It matters not, your faith.  You are one body, gathering in faith to pray.  Remember, that faith begets miracles, and there is strength in numbers who come together in prayer to share My word, and let My children know the importance of gathering for prayer.  Most of all the reception of the Sacraments by My children is most important.  The faith you had as a child will be your salvation.  Return to this faith, little one.

Ruth Ann:  I love You, Lord, and I will share this message.

Jesus:  I love you, little one.  I know this will be done.  I bless you for this.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

Jesus:  Now, go about your day in peace.
