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 6, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus.
Jesus: Yes, little one.
Ruth Ann: I feel like I have too much on my mind, but I wish to speak with You.
Jesus: I am here.
Ruth Ann: Just talk to me, and I will listen. Alright, Lord?
Jesus: Yes, I will do so. Your mind is not busy, it is cluttered, little one. You must learn what to keep, and what is trash or garbage to be discarded.
Ruth Ann: I know this to be true, Lord. It was the same way with confession last night. I felt I was so full of sin that I really didn't know where to start, so I just ended up saying that my biggest sin was lack of faith and trust in God, and asked for Your forgiveness for all my faults and sins, but now I feel I should have taken time to name each sin.
Jesus: Little one, it is best to convict yourself in front of God, humble yourself, but it is true sometimes there is not enough time to do so. In that case, make a general confession and ask for absolution, but at another time, when there is time, decide, and discuss these faults and concerns with your priest. He will help you put these sins in proper perspective. Sometimes it is just clutter and excess baggage, and not true sins. As you pray and become closer and closer to Me, you will discover that everything you do and say will have special consequences. You will become more and more sensitive to those things that cause Me pain.
Ruth Ann: I am already feeling that, Lord.
Jesus: Man has become so desensitized to sin, because there is so much around him, that he is unaware of the many things that he does do that pierces My heart.
Ruth Ann: When You say 'man', and 'he', I feel you are talking to me.
Jesus: I am talking to all My children.
Ruth Ann: There are so many things going on that I'm not certain about, such as rosary congresses, etc. Are we to become involved in all these things?
Jesus: Little one, you have your mission put before you. You will have your talks to give, and you are to house the Medjugorje prayer group, and pray with those who ask for prayer. If I wish you to do more, I will tell you.
Ruth Ann: I felt a need to go to a wedding, and intended to go, but Jim talked me out of it.
Jesus: Little one, you have a full-time job, My work, and a family. You cannot burn a candle at both ends.
Ruth Ann: But it is something I wanted to do.
Jesus: Time would have been made for this, but other things would not have been done. You must learn, little one, to prioritize the things in your life.
Ruth Ann: Will You address those things You spoke of yesterday, You and Your Mother?
Ruth Ann: Yes.
Jesus: It will come about, child. Are you not already seeing miracles that could only come from God?
Ruth Ann: Yes, I am.
Jesus: Do not doubt for one minute the prophecies that have been given to you by My Mother and by Me. All will come to pass; the manifestations, the visit from Me, all those things you have been told of at an earlier time will happen. It must be in God's time, and you must be ready. You cannot see the big picture, little one. If you could, you would have no doubts. That is where faith and trust in your God must come into play.
Ruth Ann: And what about my children?
Jesus: God will watch over your children. Your Mother's heart aches for your children. You want all to be well and have all their wants and needs met. That is true of all good mothers. My Mother is the perfect example of that. She wants all of Her children to be happy, and be at peace, and how it hurts Her to see them at war and in such turmoil. She does not give up, little one. She continues to pray and trust in God to tend to all their needs. Faith and trust, little one, pray daily for these two graces. God will give them out in abundance, you know. This is a time of grace and mercy, and both can be had for asking.
Little one, I know you begin to feel overwhelmed by what is happening in your life, but you must learn to live one day at a time, and give all to God. You may not realize all that is going on is for the coming of the Son of God, but it is so. You are only a tiny pebble dropped into a pond. You are only an instrument. I do all the work. You have been dropped into the pond. I am the ripple that will continue to work until the end of the pond, or, the end of time. There are many such pebbles, and all could do nothing without Me. That should help you put all you do in proper perspective. It is important, but only in the sense that it is calling all of My children to Me. Listen, be obedient, and pray, I will do the rest. Have I not taken care of your needs so far?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, this is true.
Jesus: Then do not let the darkness muddle your mind or fill you with excess baggage. I am light and love, I am peace. Walk in My light and do My will. My Mother and I will tend to the rest.
Ruth Ann: Yes Jesus, thank You for helping me regain my peace.
Jesus: Thank you for listening, little one.
Message of Sept. 15, 1993, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother Mary.
Our Lady: Yes, child.
Ruth Ann: I thank You for the message. It was very beautiful. You continue to bless us with encouraging words, even though all around us there is so much sin and suffering, so many terrible things happening in the world.
Our Lady: Child, you are not to focus on the bad. You are to pray for those things that only God can change. Keep your mind and heart on the One Who is light, love, and peace. Pray for His light to permeate the peace in the darkness of this world. God is the only One Who can change a world that has become bogged down in so much muck and filth. Man continues to flounder about, unable to pick himself up and out of this darkness of sin.
God will continue to send lifelines to each of His children. These lifelines will be in the form of special graces and blessings of all kinds. There are chosen ones all over the world receiving messages, visions, apparitions, and other visible signs that God is alive. He is ministering through His children by sending His Mother among His children to grab their hands and pull them out of this darkness. He is allowing Me to call out to My children in so many ways, and many are responding to this call. Many are not. Those of you who are chosen to spread the word of God and minister to His people by prayer and sharing of His blessings He has given to you, are a special blessing to Me and My Son. You have taken up the cross, and have begun to follow My Jesus on this difficult road to Calvary. Those who do the will of God have much work to be done. Be not afraid. The graces will be there to sustain you.
Ruth Ann: Is the lady I met today of You and Your Son? I hate to ask, but she certainly seemed genuine.
Our Lady: Yes child, she is of Me and My Son. She too, has a special mission. She too, must be patient and wait for God's plan to unfold. Her mission and your mission are not the same. The end results, however, are. The purpose for you, your gifts, are to bring souls to God. The sharing of these gifts was to give strength and encouragement to each other. This too, was a special blessing from your Jesus. Know in His love and tenderness He wishes to give peace and solace to all of His children chosen to perform a special task or mission here on the earth. The fact that you were brought together brought much joy to you both. All of God's children need to hear things that will encourage them in the work put before them. Even though your gifts are different, there is a similarity and clarity to the call. You are both doing the will of God, not knowing in what direction it will lead. This is true faith, child. Faith is going forward and doing what is asked, without knowing exactly what God has in store. Such faith is a beauty to behold. God's chosen ones have this faith.
Remember, God has said He has chosen you, and He will do the molding. These things are coming about gradually child, through prayer, sharing, and spiritual readings. You will continue to grow and change through these very special graces granted to you by God. You are an instrument being shaped, molded, and polished by love and guidance given to you through your Creator. Thank God frequently for these graces, child. Not many are given so many beautiful gifts as those granted to you.
Ruth Ann: Is there anything else You wish to say, Mother?
Our Lady: Child, I know you have a busy day ahead. Know that My blessings and graces are with you. Continue to minister to God's people. The graces are there for you as you need them.
Message of April 5, 1994, from Our Lady
Our Lady: Your ministry is here on the farm. You are tending to the lost sheep who would otherwise go astray. You are gathering God's children together in one fold. That is what God has asked you to do through Me. Here His children are gaining graces and peace they cannot find in other places. Here their faith is being restored. In watching you step out in faith to do the will of God, others, too, are gaining the strength they need to witness to the greatness and goodness of God's mercy. Through those who care enough for their brothers and sisters to stand firm in Jesus and Mary, many souls are being touched and brought back to the faith they had as small children. This is your ministry, little one of God. This is the ministry of your family. Your family is to be a beacon of light, little child. Do you not remember those words spoken to you in Medjugorje?
Ruth Ann: Yes Mother, I do.
Our Lady: You should refer back to that message of prophecy from time to time. There is more in that message than you realize. Many truths were revealed to you, and these are coming to fruition, the good as well as the bad. The persecution has begun, child. This you knew would come. But God will provide you with ample graces to sustain you through these times. Be not afraid. You were told you were to experience My Son's walk to Calvary. Also, you were told you were to carry that cross, so you should not be surprised at anything the evil one would thrust at you through those around you. Child, you are to give it all to God. Let Him tend to all these problems, hurts, and disappointments. Then you will regain your peace. God wants from you total acceptance and trust. Now, child, go in the peace of My Son, Jesus Christ. Know My protective mantle surrounds you and your loved ones.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother.
Message of Sept. 12, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, there is so much going on today. Please help me get everything done that needs to be done today.
Jesus: Little one, it will be so. However, that is not your real reason for wishing to speak with Me, little one. I have already told you, I will be with you. I am always with you. You need only ask for My guidance and assistance. I am there always for all of My children. They need only to seek and they will find Me. Again I say, blessed are those who do not see and still believe. Your rewards will be great in Heaven.
You have been told My Mother is here on this land. This is holy ground, blessed by God. All things are being done according to God's choosing. You have been chosen for this special gift that requires great faith. You have been given a healing because of this faith. Now those who come here to pray and receive the graces provided by My Mother too, are chosen. I have said, and so has My Mother, that only those who My Mother has invited, come here to pray. She is choosing those who are serious about helping Her achieve the end of the reign of the evil one on the earth. Many hearts are being touched, and those who are faithful are given great graces to sustain them through the difficult times to come.
You have been told your ministry is to change soon. Much more is needed to get the attention of My children. There is much suffering ahead for a stubborn world that continues to turn its back on God. Your faith has been of great help to Me, child. It has been of great help to those who continue to watch you for direction. You are to be a model for My children to imitate.
Ruth Ann: Lord, this can't be. I'm a sinner. You don't want Your child-ren to follow My example. Please don't say this to me.
Jesus: Little one, it is your faith and trust in God that continues to sustain you through all you do. The messages you share, the talks you give, the prayers you pray for others, all that you do and say, has been done in faith. You were asked to give up your career, your home, your very life, to share with others. You have given all to Me. You have said, "Your Will be done, Lord." Your simple 'yes' to the will of God will bring about the salvation of many. Yes, it has cost you much. Your privacy is gone, but in giving much, much will be returned to you.
You must not feel slighted because you are not having apparitions of My Mother. That was not to be your gift. You will see Me though, child, when the time is right. I will come to you, and ask you to carry My Cross. All will know you are of Me, and that I have been here. Because you have been true and faithful in little things, much more is to be required of you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am not sure of what You are saying. I wish You would speak clearly, so I knew exactly what it is You are saying to me.
Jesus: Little one, have I not always given you clear direction when it has been needed?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: The direction you need in your life will continue to be given to you. I will continue to speak to you when there is a need. My Mother will do the same.
Message of Sept. 19, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: Where is the faith of My children? Have you become so educated you no longer need your God? If this is what you really believe, then you have strayed so far it is going to take drastic measures to bring you back. Kind words and a gentle voice do not seem to be working. The eyes and ears of My children are closed. Many hear of My Mother's visits to the world and continue to say, "These are not real." They say, "This is the result of hysteria in a world that is troubled." Your world is troubled, child. It is not only troubled, but it is in trouble. It has chosen to turn its back on God.
Down through the ages, this has brought anger from the One Who has created you. It is no different now. Your God is disgusted with man, and his continual denial of the values he used to hold dear. The love of His Son, and the respect for the Mother of His Son, have been cast aside, and have been replaced by the love of money and pleasures of the flesh. Man is replacing God with false gods, and this is not only not acceptable and displeasing to your God and Creator of the universe, it is causing Him much anger.
The warnings have been given to you over and over, all over the world. Now you must reap the benefits of what you yourselves have sown. Innocents will suffer because of the hardness of your hearts. This cannot be helped. Man has brought the wrath of God upon himself, and now he must suffer the consequences of his many sins.
Ruth Ann: Lord, are there no words of encouragement? What about those who are trying to do Your will?
Jesus: Little one, those who are listening must continue to follow those laws set down by God. "Keep the faith," as your friend has said to you, and others, many times. Those words have been of a prophetic nature, child. In the days to come, those words will be a great reminder for those who will lose hope and trust in all that surrounds them.
My Mother would not have been sent to the earth if She were not of the utmost importance to God. She was the one chosen to give birth to His Son. Would His people doubt that She would have found great favor with Him? Isn't She the logical choice to send to the earth, to get the attention of a stubborn world who has turned their back on God Himself? Yet, there are many who are telling God's children to ignore the Mother of His Son. They say, "She is not needed." What Mother is not needed in a family structure striving to be whole and complete? Mothers are needed in an earthly family, and they are needed in a spiritual family. My Mother is needed, and She deserves the love and respect due Her.
Those who love Me, love My Mother. Those who love My Mother are best loved by Me. Need I say more? Those who choose to ignore and downplay Her importance in the salvation of mankind, must take heed to Her words. She is not to be ignored, or treated with disrespect. This displeases Me, and this displeases the One Who has created Her. The 'Woman clothed in the Sun', has Her part to play in the salvation of mankind. Man would do well to listen to these words.
You will be concerned about this message, child. Do not be. You are being prepared for a change in your ministry. You will continue on as you have been asked to do, but know that you will soon minister to My people in a new way. The messages to share with My children will cease. This has been told to you, but you will witness in a new way. All will fall into place. Have faith and trust in your Jesus. He will not leave you orphaned, and neither will My Mother.
You have been obedient, and have done the will of the Father, just as I and My Mother have done before you. Continue to be obedient, share what I have said. Be at peace with all I have said to you. Great blessings and graces are in store for those who love God and do His will.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of Sept. 28, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, is there anything You wish to add to the message?
Our Lady: Little one, My children are not taking prayer as seriously as it is needed to be taken. There is much evil and deceit in your world. The suffering and killings continue, and still many have not put it all together. Many do not see a connection between evil and the suffering. I have come to your world as your Mother and Protector. I have come to help you find your way out of this darkness. I continue to give messages to all of you, and few show any sign that they are taking My words seriously. These words and messages must be taken seriously, children, for there will come a time when you will be on your own, with no one to guide you. You will be left with your faith and trust in God alone.
If you have accepted all that has been said to you during these times I have been here with you, you will be able to walk and stand steadfast with your faith and trust in God. You will be able to stay focused on My Son. Many have not listened, and those who have listened have not taken My words seriously. I would not be here among you at this time if something of great seriousness was not about to happen in, and to your world. As your Mother, I suffer greatly for those souls who are going to be lost, because they have chosen to turn their back on God during a time when He is needed most.
Stop the killing, hatred, lust and greed that consumes your minds and hearts! These things are not of God, Who created you. You are worshipping false gods, and this will bring destruction to your world. The evil one continues to tempt and control you. You must not let him destroy you and those around you. That is his desire, to destroy you and your world. He does not wish to see peace anywhere in your world. He is wreaking havoc among you, and I need much prayer to help turn all that is evil to good.
God is watching, in hopes that I can gather a remnant few together with faith and trust in Him, that will help Me save those most in need of His mercy. With My prayer, the Rosary, My chosen ones will bind the evil one, and stop him from destroying everything I have worked so hard to achieve. Stay focused, little child-ren. Continue to pray and do not lose heart, no matter what the circumstances. Know God loves you, and I love you. My Immaculate Heart will triumph, but there will be much suffering before this comes about. Man continues to bring this upon himself through his lack of love for God. You must be patient, obedient, and follow all God asks of you. My Son is pleased with those who continue to seek His help, and the help of His Mother. Be at peace, little children, and be vigilant.
Message of Nov. 12, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, please give me the graces to do Your will.
Jesus: It is there for you. I have told you, all you need do is ask.
Ruth Ann: It becomes more and more difficult, Lord. You have left me without visions. Those were truly a blessing and a consolation to me, when You gave me that grace.
Jesus: It is true, you have had much taken from you. Much of what has been removed is to help you grow in your love for Me. It is important that you be able to go forward in faith, prayer, and holy trust in the will of God for you, without this special blessing and knowledge of My presence in your life. Many of the physical and spiritual gifts have been removed, but they will be returned to you. The signs of My presence have been removed, but My love has not been removed. Neither have the graces been removed that have helped you to carry on. Many of the things your God does, are to strengthen you in your love and trust. You are to realize that you are totally dependent upon God, the One Who has created you. You are never to forget that.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I really do know that. I know that I can do nothing without Your help.
Jesus: But you still have a difficult time giving yourself over to total trust. You still have concerns that are of this world. You must reach a point in your life where these things are not of any importance to you. You must come to have complete love and trust that God will tend to all things, whether it be your children, the media, your priest; give everything to Me. I am in complete control, little one. You sometimes forget, and then you begin to fret and worry. I am in control. All things happen for a reason. God loves you, and will tend to all your concerns and needs. Know this in your heart.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I do know this in my heart, but it is humiliating for others to think I am something I am not. It's also humiliating for people to think I'm crazy. I know that no one needs to believe that I am speaking with You and Your Mother to get to Heaven. That part really doesn't bother me, whether people believe all You have done in my life isn't necessary to be believed, to get to Heaven. You have told me, and so has Your Mother, that You would touch the minds and hearts of those You wish to have believe. So I am comfortable knowing that. I am not comfortable with being able to hear the whispers, seeing the stares, and having others relay the fact, that people I know, think I am crazy. Now I understand why You arranged for me to take a leave from school. It's bad enough to deal with these things, not working. Even going to church, going out to eat, or shopping, is getting to be painful for me.
Jesus: This is only the beginning, child. Just remember, those who suffer for My sake, receive many blessings. Remember the words to the song, 'Be Not Afraid'? Imprint them upon your heart. Those words apply to you and your cross, child. Never forget that. That song should always be of comfort to you.
Ruth Ann: It has always been a comfort to me, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, I have been working in your life in a mighty way, long before you ever realized it. Since your birth, you have been being prepared for what you are to do for Me. God's plans are perfect, little one, and He uses all things for His good. Man does not give God much credit for all He is, and has, but it is through My grace and mercy, that all things are given or removed. Man continues to think he is in control, but I am the One Who allows all things. The evil one tempts, bargains, and draws My children into a sinful life, but I am always there to grant mercy when it is needed. Man need only repent of his ways and change, and I am there to pick up the pieces. All it takes is a humble heart, that is truly repentant, to touch Me, and bring about the flood of graces and mercy I wish to give to that soul. The love is always there.
I love all My children, and continue to see to all their needs. In many cases, I grant them time and forgiveness, in order for them to get their lives in order, so they will have a change of heart and gain the gift of life, life in Me. Some choose to use the time wisely, and do just that. Others choose the time granted to them to continue on in their sinful ways. That is their choice. That is called a free will. You can choose evil, or you can choose good. In choosing good, you choose the gift of eternal life. In choosing evil, you receive death. Of course, I give My children every opportunity to choose life over death. I would wish all My children to choose to do the will of God, and not live according to the darkness of the world. That is not to be, in many cases. Choosing to do the will of God is much more difficult than following the ways of the world.
Your Jesus, in His humanity, suffered much in the world. Those who choose to follow in the footsteps, have much to suffer. The way of Jesus is the cross. It is not easy. It takes much pain, persever-ance, and many sacrifices. The graces are available for all those who choose to take up their cross of life, and follow Me. Be not afraid. Go in My peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of Dec. 7, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, there are so many things going on, and so much to do at this time of year, I get lost in the world of busyness, and my prayer life suffers.
Our Lady: All that you do, do for the love of My Son. Each sacrifice you make, do it for the love of God. Then your 'busyness' is automatic-ally turned into a prayer. You speak to Him in your heart at all times, and you are receiving Him at Mass and Holy Communion each day. So do not become overwhelmed by the rigors of daily life. Your Jesus is with you at all times.
I realize you are feeling like a tiny child, who has been asked to walk into a strange room that is not well lit. You do not wish to walk into this room alone. It is not necessary that you do so. I am with you. I am your Mother. Take My hand, and I will walk into this unknown with you. I too, had to accept the will of God, not knowing what was to come, so I know the feelings you are experiencing. I have brought you to My Son, but I will not abandon you. I will be here for you as long as you have need of Me. God will not abandon you in your hour of need. You must trust, child. God's plan is about to unfold in front of you, and you will understand that for which you have been groomed, prepared, and molded. You need only accept His will as I did, and as did My Son. God will tend to the rest.
It is true, you have walked a difficult journey of faith, but you must not become discouraged. The journey's end is about to become clear to you. It will be the end of your preparation and molding, but it will be the beginning of the purpose for which you have been placed upon the earth. You are to share in the redemptive love of My Son, Jesus, child. Be not afraid, God will not leave you orphaned. The blessing that He is giving through you, for His children, will bring with it much suffering, but also much joy. The joy will come from knowing that, with each step you take over the road to Calvary, souls will be saved. Not just 'a' soul, but souls, little child. As you share in the redemptive love of your Jesus, you will be responsible for bringing souls into the love of their God for all eternity.
So, as you journey on in this faith and trust of the unknown, know God's plan is perfect, and is about to be revealed to you through His Son, Jesus. As your Mother, I am with you. Take My hand, and complete this journey into the unknown with Me. I will keep you safe, and out of harm's way. Pray and trust in your God. He is giving you the gift of His love. Accept it, and take it to your heart. Embrace the cross, child.
