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 August 10, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord.
Jesus: Yes, little one.
Ruth Ann: I guess I just need to hear You speak to me. I really don't want to say much.
Jesus: Little one, I am here just for that reason. Thank you for listening.
Ruth Ann: How can I not Lord, You continue to bless me. I am not worthy, Lord.
Jesus: Child, you say these things, but yet you continue to do as you are told. You listen and are obedient to the will of My Father. That is what is needed and expected of God's children.
Ruth Ann: But You know me Lord, it's not always willingly. That's what makes me sad. Why can't I be a joyful servant, Lord?
Jesus: Do you not feel joy in your heart at this time?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: Then do not be concerned. You are a reluctant servant of God, but you are a servant. What you are doing is difficult. You have talked to Me all your life child, and now I am answering you. You feel unworthy. You wish to be perfect, and know that you are not, and feel you never will be. You feel a burden to the Lord God Who made you. Child, this is not so. You do the will of the Father. You are not perfect, and one can never be perfect on this earth. Only God is perfect. Do not be so hard on yourself. All God wants from you at the present time is that you listen and be obedient to His will. He will do the rest.
You have been given time little one, to pray and be with your family. You have had the responsibility of daily work lifted from your shoulders. You have been given a respite, child. Take advantage of this respite that has been made possible because of the love of the One Who made you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I have mixed emotions about being relieved of this responsibility. I am a teacher, Lord, I feel that was something I was destined to do.
Jesus: It is alright to feel that way, child. I would like to speak to you of your family. Your family has had a difficult time, but they have continued to know Who is the Lord and giver of life. No matter how difficult things got for your parents, they never forgot about Me. They have given their children more than most parents give their children. They have instilled a strong foundation of faith. That is worth more than any material things they could ever have given you. Your family was poor in material things, but rich in faith. The fruits of their hard work and faith are being realized through their children.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for speaking of my parents, Lord. I miss them very much.
Jesus: Yes, little one, I know this, but you must know this. One day you will see your parents, and they will be where you would have them be. They are happy child, they are at peace. Their crosses have been put down and their burdens have been lifted from them. They are experiencing the new life that you are still striving for at this time. Know they are at peace and praying for you and your brothers and sisters and the entire family.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Jesus: There is so much I could say to you child, but so much that you would not understand at this time. God has need of you and your humility, child. There are those who will ridicule you, but there are many more who will take another look at their own lives and be brought to Me through the crosses you bear. Many will look at what you are doing and see the hand of God in all you do, because you could do none of these things without the help of God. The miracles that continue to happen through you and because of you are a testimony that I am with you.
The miracles on your farm too, show that God has blessed this special place set aside for Me and My Mother. Child, if this were not of Me, you could not have the crowds that are coming for prayer.
Remember My Mother has told you, the children who come here are by special invitation. If you have invited someone to come to your home, you are not going to ignore them after they get here, are you? No child, you are going to tend to their needs. You are going to thank them for coming, and be kind and loving to them. That is what My Mother is doing. She is inviting Her children here, and then being the loving Mother that She is, She is showering Her children with graces, blessings and miracles to draw them closer and closer to Her Son. What a blessing child. This could not be if you, your husband and children had not made this place available to Her children. This would not be possible if you had chosen to refuse to listen and be obedient. Child, that is why I tell you, you are special.
Ruth Ann: Please don't say that, Lord. I'm not really, just because I have listened and been obedient really doesn't make me special. Lord, many listen, and many try to do Your will. You are the One responsible for helping me be where I am. You are the One Who has sent the people into our lives. You are the One Who arranges the talks. You are the One Who has placed upon people's hearts to help with the book, the building, the stations, and soon-to-be chapel. Lord, I really could do nothing without You.
Jesus: You are right child, but one must have a willing vessel. You do these things reluctantly child, but you do them. You have heard others say to you, "I would have never gotten involved in this. I could never have given up my life, job, family, home, farm, privacy. I would have turned and walked away." Do you see what I am saying to you, child? You say you are not worthy, but you continue to make many sacrifices for your brothers and sisters. You pray for many and encourage many in your talks. These are great sacrifices, because God realizes just how difficult it is for you. You prefer privacy and no acknowledgment for what you are doing, but you accept your cross and go on. You could have walked away at any time, little one. You have a free will, but you continue to do the will of God at all cost. You continue to make sacrifices. These will not go unnoticed. These will not go unrewarded. The things you are doing for My children here on earth, in prayer and encouragement, will bring many souls to God who would otherwise not have made it to Heaven. Now do you realize the importance of what you are doing?
Ruth Ann: I guess I'd just rather not, Lord. I'd rather just listen and do as I'm told and let You take care of the rest. I don't want to think of the importance of what I am doing, if that is alright with You.
Jesus: Child, you know that is alright with Me. I love you. I do not want to overwhelm you. I am only trying to tell you of the importance of your cross. It is no ordinary cross, this you have been told before. You are beginning to realize that it is no ordinary cross, as those around you too, have begun to realize this. You are seeing the fruits of your efforts. So are those who know you, but where there are fruits, there will be many other problems as well.
The evil one is not pleased, little one. He is angry, and he will continue to strike at you and those around you. Prayer is of the utmost importance. Consecration to My Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of My Mother are extremely important, as is the help of the angels and saints in Heaven. Prayer, little one, will see you through.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: Be not afraid, little one. Many have gone before you and have walked the way of My cross. I will not leave you alone. I would not have chosen you, and then left you to do all this on your own. You have special help; your family, your priest, your prayer partners, and all the helping hands that have been sent into your life. These have not been placed there by accident. They all have been hand-picked by God Himself. All have been chosen for a special reason to assist and minister to you. It is a difficult task set before you, but God has done all He can to put the right people into your path at the right time.
As your priest has said, "There is no such thing as luck. It is Divine Providence." This is so, little one. God's plan is perfect. In order for it to unfold, He must make sure that all things fall into place at just the right time. God's plan cannot be hurried, and it cannot be slowed down or stopped. His will, will be done. Know this, little one, you are doing the will of the Father, just as others have done before you. I am with you. Now go in the peace of Jesus Christ, your Lord and Savior, to start another day.
Message of Nov. 13, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, it seems to me that I don't speak with You as much as I used to.
Our Lady: This is so, little one, but it is time I decrease and My Son increase. You have much to do, child, the time is nearing when all you have been prepared for in God's plan, is to come to fruition. If you could only see the big picture, child, you would be able to understand, but this was not, and is not, to be. God is watching over you. He has seen to all things, each person, each event, has added to the plan when God has seen fit to place each peace of the puzzle into place. You are too close to the big picture, so you cannot see what is about to take place. Know in your heart that God tends to all things. There are times when your heart feels like breaking, when those things happen you do not understand; know God's plan is perfect, and even evil can be used for good. Be at peace, little child, much more is in store for you. You have much work to do, and know your God will be with you to see you through all that is about to unfold.
You continue to be obedient, you continue to listen, and you continue to share. These things which you are called to do are not easy for you. You are of a humble nature. This quality in you is one God loves most in His children. In your docility to the will of God, you will be able to be used in a special way. Your 'yes' will continue to touch the minds, hearts, and lives of those who are aware of your complete obedience to the will of God. In a world totally absorbed in self and selfish desires, it is rare to find such a flower in the midst of so many thorns and weeds. Continue to lift yourself up to the Lord in prayer and total abandonment, child. The graces are being poured forth upon you, to prepare you for what lies ahead. Many will come, seeking prayer and comfort provided through this special gift of strength and courage that are yours. Be at peace, child, I am here, and will always be near you. I love you, My special little child.
Ruth Ann: I love You, Mother.
Message of Nov. 22, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, do You wish to speak to me?
Our Lady: Child, as I have said to you before, I am always here for you. You are quite busy at this time of year, and I understand, but do not shut Me out. I wish to continue to be of help to you for as long as you have need of Me. I have brought you to My Son. That was My intent. That is always My intent. Anything I say and do on behalf of your God and Mine, is to draw His children closer and closer to Him. The fact that I have been allowed to minister to His children for so long, has been a special grace. I can do only that which God allows Me to do. Through My simple 'Fiat', great things have been accomplished through Me. It was not My doing, but through God's infinite wisdom and design, that all things have been done.
You, child, must listen and be obedient to the will of your Jesus, so that those things He wishes to do through you, too, can be accomplished. You have referred to the fact that all God needs is a 'warm body'. This is true to a certain extent, child, but the most important ingredient that you have not added is missing, unless you add 'willing'. If you had refused to be an empty vessel, or that 'warm body', as you have referred to yourself, God's work could not have been accomplished through you. You continue to sell yourself short, little one, but it is through your humility that God can do great things. Continue to be humble and obedient, and God can accomplish miracles beyond belief through you. That is His intent, child. You have heard these words spoken to you before. You have shared them with others, and they are written in the Holy Bible. You will do even greater things.
You still do not realize the intent of God's use for you, but be patient, and God's divine plan will unfold. Be at peace, and know that the heavens are available to you, as you have a need. May God bless and keep you in His care, as I watch you tend to His children.
Ruth Ann: That makes it sound as though You will be far away, as I do whatever it is God is going to have me do.
Our Lady: Little one, do not read more into what is being said to you. You are not to interpret what is being told to you. You are only to listen and be obedient to the will of God. He will tend to the rest. I have told you, I will be with you so long as you have need of Me. I have meant what I have said. My love is with you. Go in His peace. Continue to love and serve God to the best of your ability.
Message of Dec. 21, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for getting us through another busy weekend.
Jesus: Little one, have I not told you that those who put Me first will be tended to?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord, You have.
Jesus: Then you must continue to hold these words to your heart. You have continued to be obedient in all things. All that has been asked of you continues to be done. You have learned patience, while waiting for God's plan to unfold. This is not easy for you, for you have never been a patient person, but this is all part of the molding process that is being done in your life.
You are being emptied, and as you are emptied, you will be filled with all those things God wishes for you to have. Sacrifices are being made, and you are experiencing a letting go of many things in your life that you have considered your security. I wish to be this security. I wish to be your rock. I wish to be all you truly need, or want, in your life. I am your strength and your Salvation. I will always be here for you. My love never changes, and I will never disappoint you. You will never be orphaned, little one. Know I am always with you in all ways and in all things. In doing God's will, you continue to be pleasing in the eyes of God. He has so few willing workers that truly seek to do His will, and not their own, that those who are obedient, are most pleasing to Him.
You are humble, little one, and do not seek any acknowledgment for anything you do. You always give the credit to the One Who has created you, knowing full well you are nothing without God. You can do nothing without His help. So yes, child, the thanks you give to God for getting you through all those tasks He has set before you, is appropriate and accepted with the love in which it is given. Know I am always here for you. Be at peace, and continue to share that love and peace with others. Be not afraid. I am, and will always be, here for you.
Message of Dec. 28, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I have just spoken with Your Mother, do You wish to speak to me?
Jesus: Little one, She has shared the words from Heaven sent specially to those who are listening. They continue to fall on deaf ears, but those who are listening, continue to accept God's intervention with faith and trust. These of My children with childlike faith, have not lost hope. This is most pleasing to Me. Those who are listening, and taking the messages to their hearts, are experiencing God's peace. And those who have not, are still struggling in this darkness that has covered the earth.
Be at peace, little one. You have done, and continue to do all those things God has asked of you, even though you find it most difficult to do. You have been obedient, little one. You have humbled yourself by sharing all those things you have been asked to share. God knows this is not easy for you. You are being per-secuted and criticized. You have been warned about this from the very onset of this gift, and yet, you will continue on. Know in your heart, little one, God loves you, and knows your heart.
He also knows the hearts of those who cause you pain. Be at peace, little one. God tends to all things. Those who criticize and wish harm to those loved by Me, are not to be of concern to you. You need only be obedient, and do the will of God. Trust, little one, God's plan is perfect. Those who have criticized, and have not believed in the gift you have been given, will one day wish they too, had listened. My Mother con-tinues to touch the hearts of those who are willing to be receptive to the gifts of God's love.
Those of My children who have listened to the words being spoken to them from Me and My Mother, have been asked to share. This is to strengthen the faith of those willing to listen. They have not asked for praise. They have been most humble. That is why they have been chosen. They, and you, realize your unworthiness. Be at peace, and listen to the words that I give you, and the words of My Mother. Share what God has done in your life, and do it with love and trust in your heart. Know that those who are touched, will go forth and touch the lives and hearts of others.
Those who choose not to accept, will not. That was true in My time of sharing God's word, and it will be true in your time of sharing. This does not make the task any easier, I know, little one. But know that even if one heart is touched and brought closer to Me or My Mother, it has been worth any pain or persecution you have received, and will continue to receive. God's plan is perfect. Pray for those who persecute you, little one.
Ruth Ann: I always pray for those who hurt me, Lord. You have said, "Love your enemies." This I try to do, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, I know this to be true. I am telling you this, so you can not only be reminded, but you can share those words with all those who will be reading these words. Those things said to you, apply to all My children. That is why you have been asked to share what is being spoken to you. Your gift is for others. It is not just for you alone.
Ruth Ann: I have come to appreciate this, Lord, and I mean it with deepest respect and love.
Jesus: Little one, you need not tell Me this, I know your heart.
Ruth Ann: It is being said to You, Lord, so others realize that I do not do this out of any wish for notoriety. I do this out of obedience, love, and respect for You and Your Mother.
Jesus: Those who know you realize this, little one. For those who choose to think otherwise, that is not to be of concern to you. The persecution you receive on My behalf is all part of the cross, little one. Do not take it to heart. Accept it in the light it is given, and move on.
Now, you have much to do today. Thank you, little one, for taking the time to listen. Be at peace with this day. God loves you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, for being here for me, and those who are listening.
Message of Jan. 11, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus, I have need of your peace.
Jesus: I am here, little one. It is time for you to move on. This is a period of growth for you. You can accept this, or you can reject it. I know your heart. You will accept it. The peace and love of your Jesus will continue to burst forth from you, like a blossom on a tree that bursts into full bloom in the spring. You too, will continue this growth, until you no longer have need of growing. That, child, will be when you have done all you are to do here on the earth, and are with Me for all eternity. This is what I wish for all My children, not just you.
Some are not so receptive, and continue to fight against My will for them. Those are the ones you must continue to pray for. I want all souls saved. Even though I know this will not be the case, that is what I desire. But man has a free will. This free will has caused him much difficulty. The need to always feel in control, in itself, causes one not to be able to truly give of self. Many of My children are not humble, and those who are not, suffer from pride. Man must continue to humble himself before his Creator, in order to be able to do the will of God.
I continually humbled Myself while on the earth. I was an example for all of My children. I was of service to all who were in need of Me. That is what is expected of those who are chosen to be an instrument of God, a constant humbling, and acceptance of all that comes. But, also, in that humility and acceptance, there must be trust, trust that God's will, will be done in all things.
Be at peace, little one. Know I am watching over you. Rest in Me, and grow during this respite granted unto you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of Jan. 14, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, this is Saturday, and I must witness today. Please be with me.
Jesus: Little one, you will not be left to your own resources. Trust, little one. God would not be having you do this, if it were not important. Each person sent here to hear your words through your testimony of how God has worked in your life, has received what I would have them receive. You must continue to be obedient, and do not fret. The graces will be here for you, so that you will be able to witness in the way God wishes.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am so afraid this week, as I am tired. We have been fighting this terrible bug that has ended in bronchitis. I have had little quality rest this week, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, the energy will be provided to see you through this weekend. Be not concerned about the strength to do the will of God. It will always be provided. It is important, how-ever, that you be obedient, and do all God asks of you. He will not ask more of you than you are able to do. All graces and blessings will be provided for you, as the need arises. That does not mean that you will not suffer per-secution. It only means that you will be given ample graces to deal with these attacks.
Again, I say unto you, My little child, that I will always be here for you. Be not afraid. Do be obedient.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I try to. My life continues to be a struggle.
Jesus: Little one, you are constantly under attack, but remember, I am stronger than the evil that bombards you. And you have the authority to come against that evil, in the Name of Jesus. Never doubt these words. My Name brings with it blessings, graces, and strength. The strength that is needed to sustain all who are of Me, is contained in that one little Name. No other is greater than this Name. The words 'I bind and rebuke all evil spirits and voices from me in the name of Jesus', can stop the evil one in his tracks. All fears and doubts can be cast aside with these words spoken out of love for Me. I have asked that you place your concerns in a drawer, and close that drawer. I will tend to you, and all your concerns.
Ruth Ann: That is easier said than done, Lord. I have always been a worrier, and a bit of a perfectionist. Both have caused me great stress over my lifetime. Old habits are difficult to break, or stop.
Jesus: Change the worry to trust, little one. Trust that I will tend to all things. Be at peace with all God is calling you to do. He will not leave you orphaned.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am not sure I will ever be at peace with what I am called to do. That's why I wonder why you ever bother with me. There are so many who would love to be doing what I am called to do, and could do it so much better, and with greater enthusiasm.
Jesus: Who would they be doing it for, little one? Many are called, but few are chosen. Many would like to be doing this great witness for Me, for the publicity that they, themselves, would receive. Many would be saying, "Look what I am doing." They would be taking the credit for all the work that I am doing. You, child, realize you could do nothing without My help. You realize that all things that have been given unto you, have been done so for a reason. You realize your lack of knowledge, strength, and courage to do all that has been placed upon your shoulders. You acknowledge Me and My presence in every aspect of your life.
You continue to pray for special graces and blessings for all those who come here, or contribute to your ministry in any way. You know all of these people that are sent here, have asked for prayer, or contribute to this farm in any way, are sent into your life by Me and My Mother. You know that all things come from God, and you continue to give Him the credit for all things, great and small, within your life.
It is difficult for you to share with, and lay hands on, My children. But you, child, do it out of obedience. You do not do it for yourself, and you do not want the credit for the work I am doing through you. You give all the credit and all praise, honor, and glory to your Jesus. You consider yourself nothing without Me. This is what I would have you feel. For all My children are nothing without Me. Pray, and allow the Holy Spirit to minister to My children this day, and every other day that you witness to My children in need. Continue to be a willing instrument, used by God to do His bidding. Trust, little one. God will tend to all things, great and small.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. Thank You for speaking with me.
Jesus: Be at peace, little one, the weekend will go smoothly. Those who are called to be here, will be here. Numbers do not matter. Those being touched do matter to Me. Remember the ripple effect of which I have spoken.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: So even if only one person is touched deeply, it can have a great impact upon the lives of others. Look what My working in your life has brought about.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for this encouragement, Lord.
