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 April 3, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, is there anything You wish to say to me today?
Jesus: Little one, I am always here to speak with you. It is you who must listen.
Ruth Ann: I am not feeling very well today, Lord. It has been a really busy week, and the weekend is not any less busy. There is no time to rest, Lord.
Jesus: Child, you must take time to rest. Just as you must eat, sleep, and drink, to live in your physical body, so too, you must have rest. The time is coming soon that you will have time to rest and pray.
Ruth Ann: Lord, our summers are just as busy as our school year any more.
Jesus: It is because you so choose.
Ruth Ann: That is true. It is time spent with the family and doing things that involve the church. I do have more time to pray then.
Jesus: Child, there is much ahead for you. Do not feel the burden is too heavy for you. There will be those sent into your life to lighten the burden. You are feeling so burdened by the pain and suffering of all the world. Child, it is as God wishes, you have taken the pain upon yourself for the sins of others. The suffering of others is so devastating to you. It is to be so, child. Otherwise, you would not be able to do what God is to ask of you. If you felt all was right with God's children, would you feel this urgent need to help?
Ruth Ann: No, Lord. You are right, though. At this point I don't feel like I'm doing enough, and wish I could do more to help.
Jesus: This is God's way of preparing you for what is to come. As you see the need to help God do His work here on earth, it will become easier for you to say 'yes' to whatever He asks you to do. The 'yes' is the easy part though, child. It is the cross that will be very difficult for you. The burden will be great, little one, but as I have said many times before, you will have little miracles along the way daily, to encourage you and brighten each day. Also, there are others being sent into your life to lighten the burden along the way.
Child, your cross is just beginning. You have only seen the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. God has so much for you to do that you cannot begin to realize the magnitude of your mission. The statue is in place, the miracles have begun that have been told to you. Every revelation spoken to you on the hill in Medjugorje will come to pass, even the messages you chose not to write.
Ruth Ann: And that was, Lord?
Jesus: The message My Mother gave to you in answer to a question you asked.
Ruth Ann: And that question was?
Jesus: You asked if you were going to be completely healed.
Ruth Ann: You are right, Lord.
Jesus: Do you remember her answer?
Ruth Ann: Yes I do, Lord. She said, "Child, you will be completely healed, and then you will be asked to carry a cross." I didn't understand it at the time and I didn't feel it was important. Now I'm beginning to realize it probably was the most important part of the message.
Jesus: Child, it has never left your mind. You have known it in your spirit, that something was coming for you that was not the usual crosses and problems to deal with, as others. You are child-like in your faith, but you are very perceptive in all that is going on around you.
Remember in Medjugorje, when all were speaking of peace, and you were seeing Satan everywhere you turned and feeling his presence very overpowering? It was so overpowering, you asked your husband to please get you away from there. You needed to go home so you could pray.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I remember. I also remember seeing all the demons of hell all over my room, intertwined among and around each other. On the wall, ceilings, like worms used for fish bait. I was truly frightened and used holy water and prayed. My husband held me, I was so scared. At the time I didn't realize why I was being shown this, but now I do. It was a premonition of what was about to happen, was it Lord?
Jesus: Child, it was to help you realize the need for much prayer. Satan had already 'inched' his way into a place that was made special by the appearance of the purest of the pure, My Mother. He, through others, was already infiltrating the very depths of the purpose of the pilgrims, to find God's peace in a world that has so little peace.
Your sensitive spirit, heart, and mind, perceived what was all around you. Now, you are feeling this same darkness in your own country. Your little farm, this Haven of Peace and Prayer, is going to be a refuge for many who cannot find peace in their own world.
Be not afraid concerning the mechanics of this. It is all being taken care of. You have said 'yes', and God must put into play all that is necessary for your 'yes' to be fruitful upon the earth.
Now child, I know you are tired and have much to do. Go in My peace.
Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for this peace. I love You.
Jesus: Child, I know this to be true. Remember, I can see your very soul. I know your heart. Your love for Me can never outdo My love for you. Know this, little child of God. Convey this to all My children. No matter how much they love Me, their Creator, it is nothing in comparison to My love for My children.
Ruth Ann: Most already know this, Lord. But it will be in the messages for them to read, and I will tell them in my talks.
Jesus: Do this child, it is very important. They must know these words and feel them in their heart. No matter how sinful man has been, or is, God loves you. These are the most important words of all My messages. It is the very focus of why My Mother is here.
Ruth Ann: I will remember, Lord.
Message of May 31, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus, would You speak with me?
Jesus: Child, I am here.
Ruth Ann: Is there anything in particular You would like to speak to me about? I am feeling like You wish to speak to me.
Jesus: Little one, you are correct. You were feeling sad because there were problems and misunderstandings among those who are your friends and those who have professed to be your friends. Little one, remember this; there were those who professed to be My friends in the days of My ministering to God's chosen ones, and they crucified Me. You feel this is very strong language for Me to use, little one, but it is truth. Those who do much will suffer much. Yours will be a heavy cross child, I will send help and have sent help to carry that cross. Those who are your true friends will continue on and help you carry your cross. Those who are doing My will in helping you, will receive great rewards in Heaven. Those who choose to harm and hurt you have a free will, child. If one chooses to silently walk away and says to God, "This is not what I wish to do," that is their free will. Not all will be supportive of you or what you are doing. Neither were all those around Me supportive of Me and what I was doing.
Little one, when one follows in My footsteps, the path is narrow, rocky, and extremely difficult, but the rewards are a hundredfold. Woe unto those who would hurt one of Mine, the least of My little ones. Yes child, I am a loving God, but I am also a just God. So you are not to be concerned about those who would do you harm. Pray for all God's children. Do not be distracted by the tactic of the evil one. Keep focused on your Jesus and the will of My Father in Heaven, and God will do the rest, little one. I have many little ones all over the earth who are helping Me. There will be persecutions suffered because of My name, but know all who love Me and do My Father's will, will not be abandoned. There will be people brought into your life that you would never expect to help you in your journey to the cross of Calvary. Love them. They are your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. They are true friends, and will help you on this long and difficult journey. So too, love your enemies and those who would do you harm. They are in need of prayer.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Jesus, for Your words of encouragement. It helps me to realize that all that is happening, is all part of the plan, even the bad.
Jesus: Little one, where there is good, there will always be evil. That is the way of the world. I wish it were not so, but it is such. I also wish I could say to you, "Little one, you will not have to suffer," but that too, is not as it will be. No, the rewards will be great, as I have said to you before. The end will justify the means. You do not truly understand these words. It means, little one, that all you will suffer will bring many, many souls to God. What greater gift to give to My Father than souls delivered from the grasp of Satan himself? Souls given back to God even more beautiful than before because of the suffering of one of His chosen ones. Does that not bring peace to you, child? Does that not help you to realize that what you are doing is worth the pangs of hurt you are beginning to experience?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Jesus.
Jesus: Be not afraid. God has greater things in store for you. The greater the suffering, the greater the rewards.
Ruth Ann: I'm really not into suffering Lord, but I do want to do the will of God. I guess what I'm really saying is, please help me to do whatever it is You want me to do.
Jesus: The graces will be there for you, little one. It is as you so desire.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I will remember my enemies in prayer, as well as those who are of help to me.
Jesus: Go in My peace, child. Enjoy your day.
Message of March 31, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am ready to listen. It has been a very interesting week so far.
Jesus: Little one, you are right. Soon you will learn to keep your peace no matter what comes your way. Trust Me, little one. Know that no matter what others say or do to cause disruption, confusion, and irritation, God's plan will not be destroyed. So do not concern yourself when something happens over which you have no control. Your Jesus and His Mother are with you.
Man cannot control God. He can cause God to use other channels and means to accomplish His end result, but he cannot stop what God has set in motion. Your life is such as that, child. You have said 'yes' to Me and My Mother. You have chosen to do the will of God. His work will not be destroyed or stopped. So continue on in prayer, little one. You have been given an anointing to help you persevere in all you do. Know that God is with you, or this could not have been done. You will know them by their fruits, little one. What more is needed. All you have done thus far is the will of God. That you will continue to do, will also be His will.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I become so overwhelmed sometimes and totally afraid that You have chosen the wrong person. You say You know my heart, and I know that is true, but why do I have to experience such pain? And I don't mean physical, I mean spiritually.
Jesus: You are dying of self, little one. After the time of great pain and anguish, are you not given many graces and blessings as confirmations that what you are doing is Christ centered?
Ruth Ann: You know this is true, Lord. But why do You do this for me when I have such periods of doubt and irritation at having been chosen to do these things for You and Your Mother. I would have given up on me a long time ago. And yet, You and Your Mother continue to be patient with me.
Jesus: That is where you are wrong, little one. You would not have given up on me, as you say. You have had times when your children have been difficult, and even disobedient, but did you give up on them?
Ruth Ann: No, Lord. I think the more problems they caused, the more I loved them, because I knew they were hurting themselves more than we were being hurt.
Jesus: You have your own answer, little one. You struggle and suffer much, and you need not struggle at all. I love you. I will tend to your needs. You need only be patient. How can I not be patient with you, when no matter what, you continue to struggle on each time, with an even greater resolve to do the will of the Father. Remember, God knows your heart. That is truly what matters. Of course the evil one will continue to come up against you, and you will continue to struggle. But you are strengthened and purified during each one of these attacks for you do not give up. You then emerge with an even greater peace than you had before.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, this is certainly true. For example, right now I feel so full of love for You and Your Mother, it truly is amazing.
Jesus: Trust in Me, child. I will always be here for you. Do not hesitate to bring all fears, doubts, and concerns to Me. I will reassure you and hold you in My arms as a parent would do for a child who is in need of being consoled.
Ruth Ann: It is easy for me now to say, "Okay, Lord." But at the time of confusion and anger, that is not easy to do.
Jesus: You still have growing to do, child. You will learn that these attacks you receive are only temporary because the evil one cannot stop God's plans. Place all in My hands and the hands of My Mother. Know that Our love will sustain you through any and all things. This is true for all My children. Share these words so My children know that We are always there for them, no matter what their concerns may be. No matter how great or small, if it is a concern, then We wish to tend to this need.
Ruth Ann: It will be shared, Lord.
Jesus: You have things you must do. I will not keep you. Go in My love, little one. Bask in it all day.
Ruth Ann: Thank You Lord, that is my intent. I love You so much.
Jesus: I love you, little one.
Message of May 2, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, I need Your help. This is a difficult week for me, and next week won't be much better. I have three talks in two weeks. You know my weaknesses. Take them to Your Son. I offer up all this pain, insecurity, and unworthiness for the poor souls in purgatory. Please accept this gift from a very sad heart.
Our Lady: Child, I am your Mother. Your gift is accepted in the light that it was given. This offering has come straight from your heart. May the knowledge that it is bestowing graces upon those who are in need, give you the peace which you seek. You are right. God does not ask us to do those things that are easy. My Son and I were perfect examples of that. He has called you to make a sacrifice and do penance to bring souls back to Him. This is part of your cross, child. All of these things you have been called to do have been difficult for you. Had you not done these things, think of all the lives that still would be waiting to receive that gift of faith and love of God that is so dominant in your life.
God is your focus. Heaven is your desire. You have not chosen God, but He has chosen you. Not just for Himself, but to draw others to Him through you. Remember how important it is to be a good influence in the lives of those around you. Through your example and your sharing of all God has done in your life, others too, have the faith to speak out and share what God has done in their life. Sharing this farm so others who love Me and My Son have a place to gather, share, and pray, is a special blessing to those who come; not only because those who come have a common bond, but because graces and blessings are poured out in great abundance to all those who come to this special place of peace and prayer.
You do not understand the full impact you have, and will have, in the molding and shaping of the lives of others, and their faith. But as time goes on, it will become more and more apparent to those around you.
Ruth Ann: Mother, Our Lord gave me a special anointing when I was in Jerusalem, at the Chapel of the Resurrection. He said it was to give me a resolve to go forth and witness on His behalf, no matter what was to come. I felt the anointing and felt strengthened. I really thought it meant that what I would be doing would become easier.
Our Lady: Child, everyone wants an easy way out. He did not mean it would become easier. He only meant that no matter how difficult it becomes for you, you will have the strength needed to go forth and be His witness. You did receive a special anointing, and it is doing exactly what the Lord intended it to do. You are going forth with a new resolve to do His will, and the strength will be there for you. No matter how difficult it seems to you, this will be so.
Word is spreading, child, that you have the courage to stand up and speak out concerning your faith. In a world that has learned to be uncomfortable in sharing their faith experiences, this is a bright light. Your courage to share your self, faith, and farm with others gives strength to those around you. It gives them a place to gather and give honor to Me, the Mother of God. This pleases God in great measure.
The angels gather on your farm, as do many of the saints, to assist you in your prayers. As you have already been told, We are here with you and those who gather here to pray. Many are allowed to see these graces and miracles. Those who do not are still given special graces through the peace found here on this farm.
I have told you that as your ministry grows, that your peace would be difficult to keep. You are experiencing this. It becomes more and more difficult to retain your peace. The evil one continues to attack you from all sides. Do not hesitate to ask others to pray with and for you. Yours is a great battle, and it has only begun.
Ruth Ann: Mother, I don't need to hear that, I need to hear positive things.
Our Lady: These are positive things you are hearing, little one of God. You suffer much for those around you, and still you ask for nothing for yourself. It is always for those around you that you are continually seeking favors.
Ruth Ann: You and Your Son have said, "You would tend to my needs," so I don't feel a need to ask for anything. All I really need is for You to see that those who are to hear my talks, come with an open heart, so You can give them the graces they need and the Holy Spirit can pour out whatever is needed for each person there. I always give my talks over to God so He can do whatever is needed. All I ask is that I share those words that need to be shared, and those that don't, block them from my heart and lips.
Our Lady: Child, that is doing the will of the Father. You have learned much more than you realize. Your peace has returned.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother. Please be with me all day, and every day, to help me get through these times of sharing. I love You and need You so much. You're the only Mother I have now.
Our Lady: Be not afraid, My little child. I am here with you, and for you. I love you, little one of God.
Ruth Ann: I need a hug, Mother.
Our Lady: It is done.
Message of May 17, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, we have lots to do this week, and the weekend is full of prayer and family obligations. Be with me in all that I do. I'm not sure I'll have much time to listen and record.
Thank You and Your Mother for getting us through the Marian weekend of prayer. I would especially like to thank You for seeing me through my talk on Saturday.
Jesus: Little one, I have told you over and over, We are always here for you.
Jesus: It is nothing in comparison to what I had to suffer for you.
Ruth Ann: I'm sure that is true, Lord. I'm not trying to compare. I'm only making a statement.
Jesus: It is through your suffering, little one, that others will experience healings and the joy and the love of God. I have spoken of this before. You are to carry My cross, little one. As you grow spiritually, so, too, will your cross. You do not fully understand what I am saying, but in time you will. Be patient as the Holy Spirit continues to work in your life in a mighty way. It is through your obedience that many are experiencing the love, peace, and power of God.
As time goes on, your ministry will grow and change. This is all part of God's plan. Stay open to the gift of My Holy Spirit. Stay open to My words, and stay open to what My Mother tells you. All of these things will be of benefit to My children who come to you seeking prayer and words of encouragement through Our messages. There is so much misery in your world today that those of God's children who are doing the will of God, need to hear from Me and My Mother that they are greatly appreciated. It is true many are not heeding the messages or noticing the signs all around them, but those who are listening and trying to do the will of the Father need to hear words of encouragement.
That is where you come in, child. Remember, My Mother has said, "You are to spread love and peace throughout the world." You still don't truly understand, but God can do all things. Have you not seen the messages placed in the form of a book, and is that book not going to many places throughout your country? Child, this is the beginning. But I am not here to overwhelm you. I am here to give you strength and encouragement today, so that you and your husband can get through a very busy and hectic week. All you are doing is necessary, little one.
After your daughter's wedding, you will again have more time for prayer. You are attending daily Mass as I have asked you to do. Yours is a busy schedule at the present time, but do not forget to find time for rest, and time for Me.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I will always find time for You. I may not always be able to record, but I will always find time for You and Your Mother. You both have done so much for me and my family, how could I ever forget You?
Jesus: I do much for all of My children, but they do not all feel as you do. As long as they get what they want from Me, they go about their earthly lives ignoring Me until they again need something. Many never even bother to give Me a 'thank You'. You, child, always remember to thank Me.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I hope I do. Sometimes I forget at the time, but I think My guardian angel must assist me more than I realize.
Jesus: Yes, child, this is true. Many do not realize the importance of their guardian angel. He is your constant companion, and everyone does have one.
Ruth Ann: I cringe when I think of all the sins I have committed, and my guardian angel has had to witness these.
Jesus: Little one, your guardian angel knows you and loves you. He does not pass judgment. He does try to assist you in many ways. Many do not call on this spiritual servant, sent to be with you from birth till death. That special guardian from God can be of great comfort and assistance to you. Do not hesitate to call upon your guardian angel in times of need.
Ruth Ann: We were taught that as children, Lord, but I think many of us grew away from that beautiful teaching. I know I have ignored my guardian angel for years. It's just been recently, the past few years, that I try to acknowledge his help. I'm sorry I ignored him for so long.
