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 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 1, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I love You.  I was just thinking about some people who came seeking a healing for a little child last Saturday.  It was a very emotional time for me.  I want healings for children, Lord, more than anything else in the whole world, Lord, and it hurt so much to see the pain of the families.  Why does all this have to be so heart rendering?  Lord, You know You've succeeded in completely changing me and my way of thinking and feelings, Lord.

Jesus:  Yes little one, and I am pleased you have recognized the change.  You have been hurt by others, and therefore had put up a shield around yourself to protect you from feeling the hurts of others.  You chose not to get close to others and preferred giving that love to animals instead of people.

Ruth Ann:  You are right, Lord.  But I had a reason. 

Jesus:  Yes child, I know you felt you had a reason.  But no matter how many times you have been hurt by others, you must forgive and see Jesus in them.  Even the most cruel person must be loved, because all of My children are loved by Me.  You chose the safe way to live.  Don't get too close to others and they can't hurt you.  Transfer that love to animals.  Animals are loving, and their love is unconditional.  They would never do anything to deliberately hurt you.  That is safe, child, but it is not realistic. 

Now with doing the Father's will and ministering to His people, you are finding yourself getting close to others, and so much so that you feel their pain.  This is what it is like to become like Me.  I too, felt the pain and suffering of others.  I too, took on the mental anguish of the suffering.  My agony in the garden was not so much for Me as it was for all of you and your sins.  You must not become overwhelmed by these feelings, little one, but it is all part of the cross.  You have been told your cross will be heavy, and this is to be so.  Courage, little one, I am with you.  And it is good that you have such love and compassion for all those who come here for prayer.  God hears those prayers best that are said out of true love and compassion for those in need.                                                                                     

God knows what He is doing, little one.  Have no doubt.  He is doing the molding, and in such a way that you do not recognize it until it is very obvious.  You would not hesitate to pray for others for hours on end.  Whether you had other things you need to do, or even if you were not feeling well, you continually put yourself last when you feel there are those who are in need of prayer.

Ruth Ann:  But Lord, You have said to pray for those who ask for prayer.  How could I possibly turn down even one person?  You know I couldn't.  You have asked that I be obedient, and You have asked that I pray for those willing to have prayer. You have told me that I am only an instrument being used by You.  How could I not try to reach out to those who are willing to be touched by You?

Jesus:  Little one, do you hear yourself?  You are a blessing to Me and all My people that I ask you to minister to.  I have said to you, "Minister to My people,"  and you have said, "I wish You would be more specific, Lord."  Child, in following the will of God, and by listening to the voice of My Mother and Myself, and sharing and praying with others, you are ministering to My people in a mighty way. 

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord, for choosing me as an instrument.

Jesus:  Know this, little one, everyone you have touched and prayed for will receive something from Me.  That should fortify you as you pray for those you wish to have a complete healing.  You be the instru-ment, and I will give the graces, blessings, and healings I wish to give to the person.  Remember, it is not your will or theirs, but My will be done.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  I know that is to be true.  But couldn't You make allowances in some cases? 

Jesus:  This will be so.  Be patient little one, this will be so.  Now, little one, you have much to do and I wish you to know that I will be with you throughout this entire day.  Do not hesitate to call upon Me.  I love and bless you for your obedience and your special love you have for My children.

Ruth Ann:  You have brought that about, Lord.

Jesus:  Only in one so caring and loving could this have been done.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I am only trying to be obedient.  Don't give me more credit than I deserve.  I am so imperfect.  I have so much growing to do and have so many faults.

Jesus:  No one is perfect but God, little one.  You are striving for perfection by following the will of the One Who created you.  That is what all of My children are called to do.  Be at peace, little one.

Ruth Ann:  I am, Lord.  Thank You for these beautiful words today.

 

Message of April 5, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Jesus:  You have said 'yes' to the will of God.  He will not be stopped by mere mortals, no matter who they are.  He will find a way for you to do all that He expects of you.  You are to be patient.  Trust, little one.  Know that God in His infinite wisdom and mercy will tend to you and all your needs.  He will also tend to those who come to the farm to pray. 

It is not necessary for them to hear you witness for them to receive the graces that God wishes them to have.  They can receive those graces needed by coming and praying at this haven of peace and prayer.  God can do all things.  Those who search for Him will find Him.  Those who seek His mercy will also find that.  There is no limit as to what God can do for those who seek Him. 

His Mother is here just waiting to minister graces and blessings in abundance.  You, too, in praying with others are giving peace, blessings, and healings for God's people.  Tend to His children.  Minister to His people.  He will give them all the graces and blessings they need for healings and conversions.  You have only to do the will of God and trust.  God will do the rest.  There is no limit to the power and glory of God.  You need only sit back, pray, and be patient, little one.  Watch the great and mighty One work.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Lord, for Your words and Your help.

Jesus:  Little one, I am always here for you.  Go in My peace.

 

Message of April 27, 1994,  from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother, will You speak with me?

Our Lady:  Child, I am your Mother.  I am here.

Ruth Ann:  I just need to hear Your quiet, calm voice.

Our Lady:  Keep your peace.  That is most important.  Do not let the evil one cause you to lose this peace.  When My Son was preaching God's word, He would have times when He would need to come to Me, because of the lack of acceptance and uncharitable remarks made to Him.  The apostles sought the help of the Mother of Jesus many times when they would lose their peace.  Child, I am here.  God has granted Me this grace.  He has allowed Me to walk among you and minister to His children.  Come to Me.  Ask Me to assist you in regaining and retaining the peace of My Son, Jesus. 

You have an important job to do, child.  It requires much strength, energy, and trust in your God.  He would not expect so much of you if He did not think it possible for you to do these things.  Do not let those around you distract you through their lack of peace.  Listen when it is necessary, but give it all to God.  You are not to be concerned about the mechanics of this ministry, child.  You are to listen, be obedient, and share the word being told to you. 

When someone comes to you seeking prayer, pray with them.  You are not to be distracted by those who come to detain you with their concerns or the sins of others.  They are not to detain you or keep you from ministering to others.  If there are problems or concerns they wish to bring to your attention, they are to approach your husband.  He will discern their needs.  You have a specific mission at this time.  It has been told to you over and over.  Listen, be obedient and share.  Pray for those requesting prayer.  God will tend to the rest, as long as you do His will.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Mother.  You already make me feel better.

Our Lady:  Child, tell those who come to you, you have nothing to do with the mechanics, and they have to take it up with your husband.  He can put them in touch with someone that may be able to help them.  You are not a counselor, so it is not even necessary for you to listen to the special problems of those for whom you pray.  They, those who come for prayer, need only petition God from their hearts.  They need not have their petitions said nor written to receive the graces, blessings, and healings they come seeking.  They need only hold their needs and desires in their hearts.  God knows each child's needs and will tend to it in His way and in His time.  You need only touch each person as God has asked you to do.  This is an act of obedience on your part.  In your doing so, you act as a conduit from God to each of His children.  You are an instrument being used to tend to the needs of His children.  It is their faith and trust in Him that allows Him to work great blessings and wonders in their lives. 

You are at peace, child.  Keep this peace throughout the day.  I give you My Motherly blessing and ask that you continue to minister to God's people as the need arises.  Thank you for responding to this call from Heaven.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother, for restoring my peace and explaining away some concerns.

Our Lady:  It has been My pleasure to help you.

 

Message of Dec. 29, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I am listening.

Jesus:  Little one, you seem to be concerned about the future.  Don't you know you are in God's hands?  Live each day to its fullest extent of your love for Me, and I will tend to the rest.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, it seems like so many things come at once.  My life continues to be a roller coaster ride.  Every time something really good happens, then something goes wrong, or something bad happens, to bring me down.

Jesus:  Little one, it is because you have not yet learned to put all things in God's hands over which you have no control.  Life will continue to be full of ups and downs, until you are able to take all things in stride, knowing full well that I will tend to all your needs and concerns.  Trust, little one, you must trust.  Do not worry about tomorrow.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, how can I not be concerned about tomorrow?  You tell me my ministry is going to change, and I will be doing even more for You, yet right now, I am only doing those things that I was doing before.

Jesus:  Little one, you do not even realize that your ministry has, and is, changing.  You are witnessing at your farm weekly, are you not?  This was something My Mother has asked you to do.  She has said 'numbers' did not matter.  She has said all hearts will be touched in some way.  She has seen to those who need to be here.  You do not have to do a thing.  It will all be done for you.  Either by word of mouth, or other hearts touched, the word will reach those who need to hear what you have to say.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, after giving the talk so much, and hearing the stories that others share, I'm feeling I don't have that much to share.

Jesus:  You are too close to what has, and is, happening in your life to realize all that has, and continues, to happen is a result of your testimony, messages, and praying for others.  You are unable to see all the forest for the trees, little one.  You are drawing My children back to Me.  You are assisting Me and My Mother in the great harvesting of souls.  Through your prayer, you are ministering to My children, and they are receiving healings, gifts of the Holy Spirit, child.  You continue to feel you are not doing much, but remember, anything you do that is of help to Me in the salvation of souls, is important.  You are not important, but the work you do on My behalf, is important.  You need only continue to be patient, obedient, and trust.  You are the instrument through which I am working, and will continue to work, until all I would have you do is complete. 

Each of My children on the earth have been given gifts.  Some use them, and some do not.  Your gift of faith is a gift that is being used to help others.  Faith begets miracles, little one.  Those who have the faith to accept and receive these miracles, can touch the lives and hearts of those ready to receive.  Hearts are broken open, eyes are having the blinders removed, and ears are being able to hear the words that God chooses them to hear.

As My Mother has said, little one, 'numbers' matter not.  It is hearts that are touched, and souls that are being saved, that matter.  Through the rippling effect, more and more will be touched.  You are touching more lives than you can ever imagine.  The messages given to you by Me and My Mother, are in print, and reaching out and touching many.  Many can relate to what has been said to you, and can apply these same words to their lives.  That is why I have said to you, this gift has not been for you alone.  It has been for you to share with others.  Questions are being answered for many, and many are finding strength in these words given to you.

As you struggle, so too, are My children struggling with all kinds of hardships.  My words, given to you, are for them.  They can read these words, and find a light at the end of their dark tunnels.  As you grow and find peace, so too, will those of My children reading what you have written, grow and find peace.  God's plan is perfect, child, and He can use those willing to be of help to Him in many ways.  You touch hearts, and those hearts that have been touched, touch others.  See how God works?  Through the prayer and sacrifice of His humble servants, His work is being done.

You have been chosen to be His hands and feet, here on the earth.  To minister to His people.  This is not through your merit, but through God's love and mercy.  Continue to listen, be obedient, and share.  God's love is with you, as is the strength needed to continue on this journey of faith.  Be at peace, and know I am with you as your life undergoes the growth needed to do all that is asked of you.  Change will continue in your life.  Know that this change will come, and graces and strength needed to do all that is asked of you, will be given to you.

 

Message of January 29, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I feel You wish to speak with me.

Jesus:  Child, this is so.  You still are concerned that My Mother isn't giving messages for you to share, because of something you have done or not done.  Accept it, little one.  Know that it has nothing to do with what you may have said, or done.  It was time for the messages to be removed.  Leave it at that.  It was all part of the plan.  Those who were, and are listening, will take the messages that have been given, to heart.  They will begin rereading the messages, just as She has suggested, and they will find much peace and comfort in them. 

As She has said, it is time for Her to decrease, and Her Son to increase.  You are to begin spending your time with Me, little one.  She has told you that before.  Early on, She has said to you, "I am to be your Guide, Jesus is to be your Teacher."  She has guided you, and others, back to Me.  So She has done what She has said She would do.  Know She is still with you, and all those who love Her.  That can never change.  The graces that are available here, in the haven of peace and prayer, are due to Her love for all of Her children.  The numbers will continue to grow, child. 

You had the mistaken idea, because the messages have ceased, that that will change.  She is still drawing those here who need to be here.  She is still providing great graces here, and this will continue.  There is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that is to be found here.  My children are in need of this gift.  A great harvesting of souls is to take place on this holy ground.  You have nothing to do with any of this, child.  You are a willing vessel to be used as an instrument to see that God's plan will be fulfilled.  Many will come forth with revelations about what is to come, and what is to be.  Listen, and use your gift of discernment. 

There is to be a chapel on this land, little one.  You have been told this by My Mother, and you have received confirmation of the same.  You continue to worry about all of these things, and you are not to be concerned about the mechanics, remember?  You are only to minister to My people.  They are in need, little one.  Many are having difficulty with the changes taking place in their churches.  Many realize that some things are being accepted, that should not be.  Rather than criticize their priests, they are to pray for them.  Consecrate them to the Immaculate Heart of My Mother, and pray for hearts to be changed.  She will tend to their needs.

Many have forgotten the importance of My Mother in the scheme of God's Divine plan.  She has been downplayed, and placed on a shelf to be hidden from the world.  She is important, and I will say again, those who love My Mother, are best loved by Me.  She was, and is, to be a powerful intercessor before the Throne of God.  She has been instrumental in the salvation of many.  She continues to hold back the Hand of Justice, in many cases.  In others, it is not possible.  All eyes should be upon the disasters that are plaguing the land.  None of these are by accident.  God has said, even the innocent will suffer for the blatant sins of men.  This is becoming evident, all over the world.  Maybe when man loses everything, and knows that he only has God to turn to, He will get his attention.

Pray for all those who still have no clue as to what is happening in this world.  Many continue to hide their heads, and ignore all that is going on around them.  The television has become a source of evil, as well as all forms of the media.  Sin is glorified, and brought into the homes of My little ones.  They have become desensitized to all that is immoral and unholy.  My Mother has said, "Turn away from the ways of the world, and back to God," and still Her children do not listen.

Now the Hand of Justice will move from place to place, hoping to get the attention of those who have turned a deaf ear to Her words.  Now they must pray, as never before, for God's mercy.  You, My children who have been listening, must continue to pray for the conversion of those most in need of God's mercy.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  This message seems to be quite strong, Lord.

Jesus:  It is meant to be, little one.  It is meant to be, so that My children will know that there is a reason for the disasters that are, and will continue to plague the earth.  It is to get the attention of mankind.  Be not afraid, little ones of Mine.  God is listening to the prayers of those who continue to pray.  But He is also listening to the blatant evil that continues to be placed in front of the innocent children of this world.  God is watching, and He is listening.  And He is not pleased with the evil that plagues your land.  Much prayer is needed. 

That is what My Mother's purpose is, and continues to be.  Yes, She has been calling all of you to prayer; that has not, and will not change.  Be at peace, little one.  Know you are doing all that has been asked of you.  More will be expected of those who are willing to do the will of God.  All is not well in your world.  Many are needed to help do the work in the vineyard.  The harvest is great, and the laborers are few.  Continue to be a willing instrument, little one.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

Jesus:  Now, be at peace with all I have said.  Your efforts please Me.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord, for these kind words.  You know my reluctance.

Jesus:  I know your heart.

 

Message of February 7, 1995,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I feel like something is missing, and have felt that way for the past couple of weeks.

Jesus:  Child, this will continue to be so, but you will adjust.  It was an adjustment for you when the messages from My Mother began, was it not?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  It was overwhelming to think She would have chosen me to speak to, in order to give messages and words of encouragement to others.

Jesus:  It was, and is, a blessing and a gift, a gift that was bestowed upon you by God.  Now it is time for that particular gift to be removed.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I have to ask this.  Did Your Mother mean just the messages were to cease, or did She mean everything She says to me was to cease?

Jesus:  She has said She would continue to speak with you, and talk to you, as you have need of Her.  The 'words to share' are no longer available to Her children.

Ruth Ann:  She had said to me for several weeks that the messages would cease, but I really didn't expect it so soon, nor did I think She meant 'all words.'

Jesus:  Little one, be patient, and do not fret.  Your God has a plan.  All things will fall into place.  I realize you are feeling lost and empty, but know, We are with you.  I have told you over and over, be not afraid.  We will not leave you orphaned.  That means, little one, even though Our words will cease that you are to share, you will still be able to speak with Us.

Ruth Ann:  So You too, intend to stop giving me words to share?

Jesus:  That is not the first time you have heard this, little one.  As all things fall into place, you will understand God's plan.

Ruth Ann:  I am trying very hard to be patient, Lord, but I seem to be having a lot to deal with, all at once.

Jesus:  Child, you have a mission to fulfill on this earth.  You have been told 'minister to My people'.  Continue to do just that, and do not look back, nor are you to anticipate the future.  God will reveal those things to you He wishes you to know.  You are not to try to guess the 'whats', 'whens', and 'hows'.  God will tend to all things.  It will all be done for you.  Do these words not sound familiar?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, they do.  These are the words Your Mother spoke to me in Medjugorje.

Jesus:  She meant every word, child.  She also spoke of your healing, and that you would be asked to carry a cross, after this healing.  You are doing so at this time, but that is not the cross She was referring to.  The burden She was referring to, is much heavier.  Through the gifts of God's love, you will witness in a new way to His people.  You will bring peace, light, and love, to more and more that would otherwise not be reached. 

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I realize there is no use to ask You when, or how, so I guess I just need You to reassure me that I will be able to do whatever You have planned for me.

Jesus:  Little one, if you were not able to do so, you would not have been asked.  You feel unworthy, and think you are not strong enough to do that which is expected of you, but you continue to move forward and accept each change, even though the changes are extremely difficult for you.  You are being emptied, and you will be filled.  You are being molded and prepared for the next stage in this great plan of God, which is about to unfold.  Your humanness gets in the way, child, and this causes you fear and doubt.  Neither of these come from Me.  Little one, be patient, and know that God will tend to all things, as He has always done. 

Much change has come about in your life, and the changes will continue.  Growth cannot come without it.  You have been told this was to be a time of growth and change.  Accept the will of God, little one.  Only He knows all the answers, and He will reveal those things you need to hear, when you need to hear them.  Know that you are loved, little one.  Know that God is pleased with your efforts.  Do not continue to try to find some reason for the messages being removed.  It is all part of God's plan.  He gives gifts, and He removes gifts.  Do not fret.  The new gifts, that will replace the old, are even greater.  Reflect upon these words. 

Now be at peace.  I know you are wanting to speak with My Mother, and I wish this for you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord for putting my thoughts and fears at rest.
