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 May 20, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus, would You please speak with me?
Jesus: I am here, little one, just waiting for you to finally give in and come to Me. Why have you waited so long?
Ruth Ann: I'm angry, Lord. Why do You bother to ask?
Jesus: Little one, little one, and where do you suppose the anger is coming from? You know it is not of Me.
Ruth Ann: Lord, of course I know this, I'm just really frustrated. I'll get over it, I always do. In the mean-time, I need Your words of encouragement. I'm scared and insecure, as well as angry. I'm not even sure anger is the right word Lord, but maybe it is. I am at least to the point where I know You are the only One, You or Your Mother, that can bring me out of this feeling. It's not even that I won't do whatever it is that You want me to do Lord, for I know that all of this is needed; and I also know the praying on the third Sundays and now every Saturday that, that is also needed Lord, but I just don't feel right for the job. You know I never wanted to be a speaker, I just wanted to quietly help You and Your Mother in prayer. I'd have been happy going to someone else's farm to pray once a week and on the third Sundays. I'd have been happy to help them in any way possible.
Jesus: Little one, little one, that is not to be, now is it? But that should help you to understand the feelings of My other children, those who wish to come to your farm to pray. Remember you have consecrated your farm to Me and to My Mother. It has been given special blessings and will continue to be the source of many blessings and many miracles to come.
Ruth Ann: Lord, why can't You remove all this fear and doubt, so that I'm not in so much turmoil the week before I'm to give a talk?
Jesus: Why don't you come to Me daily for My words, or as frequently as you need, instead of pulling away?
Ruth Ann: I guess it's part of not wanting to be controlled. I guess I'm continually fighting Your will, Lord. I always feel like, 'why do I have to do this?' Others have gifts and walk away and don't share their exper-iences. Why should I have to? It's more of the temper tantrum sort. I can't seem to get to the point in my life where I can say 'yes' and be joyful about it. I feel like I am being led to my death each time I do this; give a talk or share my experiences, whatever.
Jesus: Little one, you are being led to your death. You are dying of self. Each time you go before My children to share your experiences of how God has worked in your life, and tell what He is doing and will continue to do, you are baring your soul, and what a beautiful sight it is. You do not realize the impact of your words, voice, and tears, child. You do not realize the impact among those who hear My words through you. Even if some do not believe, they are touched and blessed with special graces while they are in your presence. This makes it possible for them to be converted. To receive a conversion, little one, is the ultimate gift from God. That is what all of this is about. Your Mother is here to bring about conversions for as many as will receive those graces. You have been chosen to help Her accomplish this task. You and many others have a special and immense task before you. You have said 'yes' to Her call, and now you are assisting in this mission that for Her will be coming to a close. You, and others like you, will be left to continue on with testimony and prayer. She, your heavenly Mother and My Mother, has brought you to Me. She will continue to assist you in words and She will always be here for you, but the time of Her apparitions will be coming to an end. You, my child, will continue to hear Her voice. This, She has already told you. Child, there is much for you to be grateful for. "You cannot see the forest for the trees," as some say. You have been chosen to hear the Heavenlies speak to you. You are given special graces because of your faith and trust in Me, your God.
Ruth Ann: My faith and trust do not seem very strong before a talk, Lord.
Jesus: It is because you have much to say to touch the hearts of those who will listen, little one. The evil one comes up against those of you who continue to witness and do My will. Your testimony will bring about the healing of many; that means souls lost to the fires of hell. The evil one is not pleased to have even one snatched away from his grasp. Think how he feels when he knows there are many to be snatched away from his grasp. You must learn, little one, that instead of pulling away and trying to ignore Me before a talk, you must pull closer and closer to Me in prayer. I will help and strengthen you as you approach each talk. Think of the talk as a time of sharing what God has done in your life, not as a talk. You are right, you would never have chosen to be a speaker. God has chosen this special task for you. He too, is responsible for all those wonderful graces and blessings that have been given to you to share. So child, think in terms of sharing and you will not feel overwhelmed. Remember, I am there with you and I will put the words into your mouth I would have you say. Also, My Mother will be there with you. How can you miss touching the hearts with whom you speak, when you have the two most important people in the entire universe with you? That should help you to put everything in proper perspective. Know little one, you are not doing this on your own. You are being asked to do this by God Himself. You are assisting your heavenly Mother in Her task to draw Her children to Her Son. What a very special person you are. Do you not believe that all you do and say will bring with it special blessings from the very Ones who have asked you to do this task? In your act of obedience to the Father, in your saying 'yes', many hard hearts will be broken open. Many healings of body, mind, and soul will take place. Those who hear your talks, those who are in your presence, those who ask for your prayer, and this farm has been touched and blessed in a special way, so it too is a source of grace and healings for those who will come here. Does any of what I am saying help you?
Ruth Ann: You know it does, Lord.
Jesus: Obedience is the key child, you have been chosen. You have listened and now you must be obedient and share all God is doing in your life, and He still is doing, and will continue to do so, until you no longer have need of Him; that means you have His assistance forever. Forever is a mighty long time. You do not comprehend eternity child, but that is what you have to look forward to; God's love and assistance for all eternity, sharing what He has done, is doing, and will do, is a small price to pay for the gift of eternal life. When one thinks in these terms, it may help you with what appears to be a monumental task to you at the present time. I am not only saying this to you, but to all My children who are asked to help My Mother bring God's children under Her protective care and into the light of salvation. Does this help you, little one?
Ruth Ann: You have succeeded in making me feel like a 'twirp' for being such a big baby.
Jesus: That was not My intent, little one, but in telling you of the importance of what you are doing for Me, hopefully it will help you to look forward to sharing, instead of wanting to run away.
Ruth Ann: You have succeeded Lord. I love You so much. Thank You for being patient with me.
Jesus: Do not wait so long to come to Me for help and guidance. I am here for you always. I am only a heartbeat away. I can talk with you all day and all night, if you need Me. I am not only here for you, but I am here for all My children. I want to love and heal all My children of their hurts. Tell them, come to Me, I will always be there to listen. They can share their hopes, dreams, desires, pains, sufferings. I am here for all My children and waiting to hear their needs. All they need do is ask. Graces are available and in abun-dance for all those who ask. Pray with My children, little one. I wish to give them many miracles.
Ruth Ann: This I will do Lord, now I must go. I'm already going to cause Jim to be late for a meeting with one of his supervisors.
Jesus: You will not be late, child. You have taken the time to listen and be obedient. Write My words, "You will not be late." Now go in My peace, know that I am with you and your dear ones. I love you.
Ruth Ann: I love You, Lord. Thank You.
Message of January 31, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Is there anything else You wish to speak with me about today, Lord?
Jesus: Yes. Too many of you are getting caught up in the negative aspect of My Second Coming. Yes, it is true that I am to come, and you are to prepare, but so many are becoming afraid. Children, you must focus on the positive. First of all, any one of you could die tomorrow. Should you not live each day as if it is your last? You know neither the day nor the hour of My Second Coming, so does it not make sense that you would prepare your minds, hearts, and souls as if it were to be tomorrow? Then, children, there would be no reason for fear. Fear is not of Me. Neither are distractions or confusion. Anger is not of Me. I am peace. Little one, once you see your peace being disturbed in any way, you can be sure that the evil one is becoming involved. Bind and rebuke him in the name of Jesus. Do not allow him to get a foothold.
You have remarked that the messages given to you by My Mother have become very strong or powerful. She has tried to get the attention of My children with messages not quite so powerful, and then there are those who seem to think things are not as they appear, and then do not take to heart what is being said. Now that the messages seem to have an urgency about them, there are those who wish to panic. That is not the reason for the messages, little one. The reason for the messages is to call all of God's children to prayer and conversion. If you will listen and live the messages that are God's word, there should be no fear or lack of peace.
God is pleased with those gathering for prayer, as is My Mother. He is pleased you are continuing to share the words being spoken to you, and the blessings given to you. Little one, as you continue to listen and do all God is asking you do do, graces and blessings will be yours in abundance. They will be available also for those whose lives you touch.
Now, child, your peace should be restored, is it not?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, it is. It was just for a little while that my peace was disturbed.
Jesus: That will not change, little one, you will continue to be attacked. That is part of your cross. The evil one will continue to attack those who try to do the will of God. You must continue to be aware of this and not let it get to you. Pray, little one, and come to Me. Do not allow your peace to be disturbed. Focus on your Jesus, the prince of peace. That should always be your focus. Do not focus on darkness. Focus on light, love, and peace of your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Now, My love and peace I give to you this day, and I ask that you pass it along to all who will read this message.
Ruth Ann: It is done, Lord.
Message of April 20, 1994,
Ruth Ann: Mother, will You speak with me?
Our Lady: Child, I am here for you.
Ruth Ann: My peace was truly disturbed yesterday, and the more I tried to stay calm, the more I was attacked and disturbed.
Our Lady: Child, do not hesitate to ask for prayer when it becomes too difficult for you to pray.
Ruth Ann: I don't want to burden others, Mother.
Our Lady: It is good to humble yourself before those who have had the desire to pray for you placed upon their hearts.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother, I will try to remember that. At the time my peace is being destroyed, asking for prayer is the farthest thing from my mind.
Mother, You do know there are those who are saying unkind things to those who come here to pray. There are things being yelled out by those who have no clue as to what's going on here?
Our Lady: Child, that is where you are wrong. It is because they do know what is going on that they say hateful things to My little ones. The evil one is angry, and he uses those who allow him to control their feelings of irritation, disgust, and even hatred. This is directed toward those who take time to worship God, or gather in great numbers to give honor to the Mother of Jesus.
Child, the letters you receive filled with anger and hatred, the words that will be thrown at you, are all part of the persecution. It will continue. As your ministry grows, you will be attacked. As time goes on, you will realize that those things are unimportant, and are only distractions to draw you away from the focus of your ministry. God has said, "Minister to My people." He did not add that it would be an easy task. It will not, and can never be easy. You have been chosen to tend to the needs of God's little ones who are searching for their way back to the light, love, and peace in a world filled with darkness, hatred, and turmoil. Anger and envy are commonplace in your world today. It is seldom one can find peace anywhere.
In this special place, there is peace. I am here, My Son is here. God has left His mark upon you and this land. Know that where there is good, there will also be those who wish to destroy this good. The evil one uses those around him willing to be maneuvered and manipulated to do his bidding. Be not afraid. Know, My little child, where there is persecution, that good things are happening. 'You will know them by their fruits'. Remember those words. You are producing good fruits through doing the will of God. This is not, and will never be, an easy task. When you take up the cross and follow My Son, you must expect the pain and suffering that goes with it.
Ruth Ann: I'm concerned for my family, and especially my little grandchildren.
Our Lady: All do and will understand the importance of your mission. They know that someone must take a stand for the values that were once the central focus for all in this country. God will supply them with graces necessary to be sustained. Stay focused, little child. Continue to listen and be obedient to the word of God. You have just finished a weekend of prayer and witnessing. The attacks are very strong because the evil one is angry. Many souls have been touched, child. Of that you can be sure. Otherwise, you would be left alone. There would be no attacks. The devil does not bother with those he already has. He attacks those who go against all that he stands for. He continually lashes out in anger at those who try to do the will of God.
He has a great disgust and hatred for you, child, but do not focus on this. Focus on the love of My Son. Focus on the goodness of God and all that He is allowing to happen through you and the sacrifices of your family. God loves you. I love you. We are pleased with all that you are doing. Do not be disturbed by the negative things around you that happen to disturb your peace. Concentrate on the good things that are happening to those who come here to pray. Concentrate on the graces, blessings, and miracles being poured out upon those God allows you to touch, not just in a physical way, but spiritually, through the messages and your giving of self to His children.
Now, child, go in the peace of My Son, Jesus. I have placed My protective mantle around you and those you love. I thank you for having said 'yes'.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for Your encouraging words, Mother.
Our Lady: Child, others too, will find peace in these words.
Message of May 6, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, is there anything You wish to share with me today?
Jesus: Little one, you have been in great turmoil.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. I was told there would be many 'peaks and valleys', but the valleys seem to get deeper and come more frequently.
Jesus: You will be given a brief respite soon.
Ruth Ann: Lord, can You share with me the reason for so much turmoil?
Jesus: I can, little one. Remember, turmoil does not come from Me. I am a God of light, love, and peace. So if it does not come from Me, where is it coming from?
Ruth Ann: The evil one, Lord.
Jesus: Yes, child, the evil one realizes that your ministry is growing. He sees you touching the minds and hearts of many in your sharing, and he is angry. He lashes out at you in any way he can. He brings doubt, fear, anger, despair, and anxiety into your life. He makes it more and more difficult for you to witness, pray, and be at peace with all you are doing. Many would like your gift. They have no idea the cross that accompanies such a gift. You must always stay focused on your Jesus. Know that God is with you, and My Mother has great plans in store for you. If you could only remember, little one, when you are experiencing such pain, stay focused on Me.
You have heard My Mother say over and over, 'My Immaculate Heart will triumph', but there is to be much pain and suffering before this is to come about. She says, 'pray, pray, pray'. Many still refuse to take Her messages seriously. The more your life comes under attack, the more you can be sure you are touching the minds, hearts, and souls of many people. Otherwise you would not be tormented. You would be left alone to go about your life in peace.
Ruth Ann: Lord, You are stronger than Satan.
Jesus: Yes child, this is true.
Ruth Ann: Then why do You allow him to be so mean to those who are trying so hard to do Your will?
Jesus: Little one, you have My Mother and Me at your disposal. It is up to you to stay focused. Sometimes through sheer physical exhaustion, you forget who is in control. You cannot allow the evil one to get even a tiny foothold. Once he has that, he continues to wear you down until it becomes difficult to concentrate or listen to what I am saying to you. The minute the doubts and fears begin, know he is at work. You are experiencing a difficult time in your prayer life at this time, but soon you will be given a brief respite so you will be able to go about in peace and prayer.
Know, too, child, that as the work that God has for you continues to grow, so, too, will the attacks from the evil one. It is all part of the great cross that will become heavier and heavier for you as time marches on. Those who say 'yes' to the will of God can expect great spiritual warfare. The evil, the darkness of the world is a great force. Those who are of Me can see it, feel it, and experience it. You know in your spirit the force of this evil. You also know that good will triumph over evil.
Be not afraid. Do all that My Mother and I continually tell you to do. Mass and Communion is of great help to you. Confession is of great importance. Pray, fast, and do penance. Be obedient to all that is being asked of you. Much prayer and support is there for you. Thank God every day for all He has done for you, and others through you. Be attentive to Me and My Mother. Stay focused on Me and you will be able to do all that is asked of you. We are always here for you. Trust in this love We have for you and all those whose lives you touch. My children are in need of My words. Continue to share these words with others. It strengthens them, little one. It draws them closer and closer to Me and My Mother. In this time of darkness, there is a great need for a light. Let your heart and soul be this beacon to guide others closer and closer to Me.
You have a busy day ahead of you, little one. Spend this day in the peace of your Jesus.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of July 3, 1994,
Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for helping with yesterday. Again, it was busy, but You have sustained us.
Jesus: Little one, trust. Have I not told you graces would be provided so you could do all that is asked of you? God is with you. You do not understand the full extent of what is happening here, and in your life, but that is as it should be. You are not to be overwhelmed. Your ministry is one of peace and love. If you were overwhelmed, you would not have the peace that is so desirable for all of My children. God is blessing all of you, so do not be afraid when something is asked of you, to extend you in any way.
Ruth Ann: Lord, what does that mean?
Jesus: I'm only saying to you that I am the Potter. I will mold and shape you into what I want. You need only be accepting and obedient to My will. You think in small terms, little one. You do not know the big picture. You do not know the plan of God for you and this haven of peace and prayer. As more and more people become aware of the graces to be had here, you will become more and more occupied with My children. You will be asked to go places to share your experiences, that you had not dreamed of going.
You must remember what My Mother has told you, 'I will bring those people here whom I desire to be here. I will give a special invitation. It will be as though I have tapped them on the shoulder and said, "It is time." ' These things She has told you are coming to pass. Many are not aware of this special place of prayer and graces, because it is not time for them to know. 'It will all be done for you. You will not have to do anything'. This was told to you by My Mother. The same is true of the talks you give. You do not have to advertise those talks. My Mother has said she will place it upon the hearts of those who would have you speak, so when you are asked, you can be sure it is something She desires you to do.
Ruth Ann: Lord, there are many wanting to do different things on this land.
Jesus: Child, these are not to be your concerns. All things are to go through Mary's Children for approval or disapproval. You are not to be concerned. That is why all things have been removed from your hands. You are not to be concerned about the mechanics of what is being done here. Your concern is one of obedience to the will of God. Do all that is asked of you by God, and you will have plenty to keep you occupied.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Thank You for speaking to me through the Gospel yesterday. The part about a prophet not being accepted in his own area, and not by those who know him, it especially touched my heart. This was especially true because I had just been told a few days ago that there were people in the area who knew us, who felt what we were doing at the farm was wrong.
Jesus: Those who do not understand prayer, or who have never been here, have judged you. I too, was judged to be doing something wrong, when I came to the earth to bring God's word among My people. Those who have been chosen as apostles and prophets of these times will be treated by many as I was treated, but graces abound to those who love Me, and continue to stand firm in all that is being required of them.
There will be those who will disagree with what you are doing and saying. There will be those who will feel you are not sane. But be not afraid. Pray for them. Pray for their conversions, for they do not understand the graces being provided for them in these end times. They continue to hide their head in the sand, to be protected from anything that would cause them to change their life. They wish their life to run smoothly. They wish to be in total control. They do not want to hear the voice of those who would tell them they need to change the way of their life and repent of their sins. They need to leave their material world of comfort behind, and begin to put Me ahead of all their material concerns and pleasures.
Little one, what you are being called to do is not going to be accepted by all, but remember, I was not accepted by all, either. Hold your head up, pick up My cross, and follow in My footsteps. Think of the rewards in the hereafter, and not the ridicule and criticism you will have to accept in this world. Who is your Judge? Who is your Creator? Who will provide for you a happiness for all eternity? These are important questions to be answered. You know the answers, and have already given your 'fiat'. You have said 'yes' to the will of God, knowing full well the cross God would provide for you would be a heavy one. Know too, the heavier the cross, the greater the graces, and the greater the rewards.
Ruth Ann: Lord, all I need is the strength to continue on, no matter what the consequences.
Jesus: It will and is, being provided.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I will try to remember all You are saying.
Jesus: You will be reminded in days to come. All you need to know at the present time is this, God loves you and appreciates all you are doing on His behalf. What more could one of His children ask for than this consolation?
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 persecuted 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 continues 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.
