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 23, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus.
Jesus: Yes, My little one.
Ruth Ann: I need encouragement. I am to give a talk tomorrow, and You know how I am feeling.
Jesus: Yes, little one, and you needn't feel that way. I will be with you and guide you. My Mother too, will be there.
Ruth Ann: Then why do I feel so sad?
Jesus: There are many reasons. You have much responsibility placed upon your heart. The sufferings and sins of others are overpowering for those who wish to do My will.
Ruth Ann: I've never thought of it that way, but recently I just want the chastisement to hurry and come, and put an end to all this killing, starving, and pain, especially of little children and the unborn. Dear God, if I could die and wipe away all this I would do it over and over for You. We here hurt God so much, and each day causes it to be more so. It's got to stop, Lord.
Jesus: My dear little one, God knows your heart, and knows you mean every word you are saying, and it will stop soon. The pain and destruction caused by the evil one will be stopped. But not before I have called all my believers to My heart. My most Sacred Heart is bursting with love for all those I wish to have saved. My Mother's heart too, bursts with love for all those She is calling to Her Son. Of course there is pain, child. We suffer much for all those who will be lost and choose to shut their hearts to all the pleas of My Mother, but We will continue to count on those such as you, that through prayer and great sacrifice, will save many of Our lost children. So you must not think of the dark side of what is happening in this world, but you must turn your eyes to the light and life which is Me, your Jesus, Son of the living God. You child, are to continue to be a beacon in this time of darkness.
Ruth Ann: I try, but I know I'm not trying hard enough. I'm sorry I'm being such a baby. Thank You for not being angry with me.
Jesus: My child, do you not know your Jesus loves you? He knows what you are suffering. He knows that everything He has called you to do is difficult for you. He knows you are a quiet, introverted person who wishes privacy. That is why this sacrifice of sharing your walk with Me is so beautiful. It is a great sacrifice for you, and a beautiful gift to God. To die of self and share purely for the glory of God is one of the greatest gifts you can give to God.
Ruth Ann: This is very profound, Lord. I had never thought of what I am doing in those terms. Thank You.
Jesus: It is I who thank you, for your faith and love that you give back to Me through all those whose lives you touch and bring ever closer to Me. Your Jesus knows how difficult it is to walk the earth, trying to bring others the word and healing of My Father. Remember, I have walked that road, I have made that journey. Now, My child, it is your turn. You are to take this journey for Me and My Father, but you will not be alone My child, I will be with you. Not only I, but My Mother too, will be with you. Your journey of faith will be a great inspiration for many. You have already seen the results of what you have done so far, and this is only the tip of the iceberg, as they say. God has your work cut out for you and He will continue to send you little miracles along the way, in order to fortify you. So 'be not afraid,' My little one. Remember this phrase. I have told you this is to be you and your family's theme song, so to speak. 'Be not afraid,' for I am with you even unto the consummation of the world.
Ruth Ann: Jesus, I have read this in the Bible. Will You help me find it, the passage that is?
Jesus: Yes child, I will do so.
Ruth Ann: Jesus, I do feel better. Thank You. I love You and want to do all I can to help You, but it's difficult to be on display. I would wish to be off in some quiet place, praying.
Jesus: I know this child, and it would not be a great sacrifice and special gift to God. Know that each time you speak and pray with others, the angels praise and sing thanksgiving to God in Heaven, not only for the gift of your faith, but for all those many souls whom God chose - chooses - to touch at that time. What greater gift than to give of self for the greater honor and glory of God! You are special, My child. You do not wish to hear this part, but this is so. You have been brought along gradually for this day. All things had to fall into place, and you will continue to see each piece of the puzzle fall into place. You are a chosen one, a chosen one with much work to do. It will all come about child, and as My Mother has told you, it will all be done for you. You will be asked for prayer. You will be asked to talk. God knows you are shy, and this is of His doing. You are for those who would not be forward or outgoing themselves. They can see themselves in you, just as they can see Jesus in you. If it can happen to you, it can happen to them. Do you understand?
Ruth Ann: Yes Jesus, I do. I love You and thank You for taking the time to calm me, encourage me, and give me Your peace.
Jesus: My child, My little one, how I love you. Go on your way knowing I am here for you always, even to the ends of the earth.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Jesus. Please bless me.
Jesus: Little one, you have My blessing, you need not ask.
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 experiences. 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. Now, aren't you relieved that you do not receive apparitions from Her?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, it would have been very difficult for me to have given up. I get attached very easily. I would have felt lost. It will be sad to know She is not appearing anywhere, but I am grateful She will continue to speak with those who receive locutions.
Jesus: 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 abundance for all those who ask. Pray with My children, little one. I wish to give them many miracles. 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 June 4, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: Little one, how many times must I tell you, those who pick up their cross and follow Me will experience much suffering along the way. I'm not only speaking of physical suffering, there will be mental anguish along the way. Sometimes it will seem unbearable to you. Call upon Me in these difficult times. Ask for help in carrying your cross. I am always here for you. Man always wants all the answers, little one, and they are not for you to know. God has His reasons for all things. Be not afraid. Continue to go forth and do all God has asked of you, so He can work His will through you. Let Him continue to touch the lives, hearts, and souls of all who come into contact with you.
Work through your anger, little one. Pray for the acceptance of all that is placed in your path to upset or deter you from the path He has placed you upon. Remember, God has a plan, and His plan is perfect. Know that no matter what happens, that God is in charge of this plan. The evil one will cause you to doubt, be angry, and lose your peace, but he cannot change God's plan for you.
Ruth Ann: Maybe not, Lord, but sometimes I get the feeling that it really is not worth all the sufferings I have to deal with.
Jesus: All My children have times like that, but eternity is a long time, little one. It is a lot easier to deal with pain and suffering here, than an eternity of pain and suffering in the abyss of hell.
Ruth Ann: Does that mean if I don't do Your will, that I go to hell?
Jesus: Little one, that is not what I mean, and you know it. I am saying that it is easier to put up with the struggles of being and doing good here, than to deal with being condemned to hell for doing and living a life of evil. My children need to know that living a life of sin only brings death, an eternal death. When you learn to share in the suffering and death of Jesus by picking up your cross and following Him to Calvary, then you too, get to share in His Resurrection of eternal life. Now that's the good part. That's the part that makes all of the other things worth experiencing. Be patient. Do the will of God. Don't be afraid to express your anger, frustrations, and disappointments. I am here to help and be of support to you through all of your trials, just as I am here to help all of My children and give support where it is needed. Be at peace, little one.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I feel much better.
Jesus: Thank you for trusting Me enough to air your hurts and anger.
Message of June 28, 1993 from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, where did all the time go? It is time for another talk.
Jesus: And you are concerned, are you not?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, You know that I am. I didn't sleep well because I was worrying about it last night. I try to put it out of my mind, but with little success.
Jesus: Do you know why that is?
Ruth Ann: Yes, I feel that I do, but it still keeps happening over and over. Each talk is just as difficult as the first. I actually feel physically ill and experience a lot of anguish.
Jesus: Little one, I know this is a difficult thing for you. You have referred to it as a lamb being led to slaughter. In a sense, it is. You are dying of self each time you share so much of yourself with others. You are sharing in what I have done before you. Those who give so much of themselves to others for My sake are special, and are participating in the salvation of mankind. Each time you bare your soul for others to see the work of God in your life, others are touched, little one. Many are brought closer and closer to Me and to My Mother through your great sacrifice of dying of self. Not many are willing to give up life, career, home, time, and anything else I ask of you.
At the present time you do not know the full extent of what will be expected of you. Even so, God knows you will be accepting, just as you are now. Of course, it causes you much grief. But that is because the evil one works on you continuously. He will not let you be, because he knows the extent of the blessings given by Me to those who listen to what you have to say. It is important that you know this, little one, you are only to share what I have done in your life to let My children know that I am alive, and want them to come to Me in prayer and contrition, so I can do great things in their lives. I wish to give them miracles, but they must ask for them.
Ruth Ann: I am having a difficult time even concentrating on what You are saying to me, Lord. I am really distracted.
Jesus: Offer it up in prayer little one, and it will be made easier for you.
Ruth Ann: This I will do, Lord. (At this time Ruth Ann reports that she prayed and offered up her distractions.)
Jesus: I know you have much to do in order to get ready for your talk, but I want to speak with you about something that is very dear to My heart. That is the love that My Mother has for all of God's children. She has been here for you and all those whose lives you touch. She is extremely important as an inter-cessor in the plan of salvation of man. She is the perfect flower created by God to bring forth His only Son. She is perfect, because She was created so by God. Little one, She has led you to Me. She will lead others to Me. Be sure and share this to all those who come to you for prayer and words of encouragement. And that is what these talks are all about little one, they are words of encouragement for My children. So many are not listening in their time of prayer. They pray, but they are not waiting to hear what I have to say. I wish to answer them. I wish also to speak to them through signs and wonders, or as you call them, little miracles.
Ruth Ann: Lord, so many do not recognize a miracle when they receive it. They think it is a coincidence or just plain luck.
Jesus: It is neither, child. It is as you say. It is a miracle given to My children to build and encourage their faith so they can go out and share what God is doing in their life. Too many take My miracles and then do not share. I thank you for sharing the many miracles I have given to you in your journey of faith, little one. There will be many more, and they will continue to help you to grow and extend yourself even more to others. Do you see how God works to help all of His children grow? It is through those who are willing to give up their life for the sake of others that God can do His work here on the earth.
You feel overwhelmed by these talks, and even the prayer life you are participating in on the farm. It is a great sacrifice for you because you are a private person. You are shy, as some would call it. I call it humble, little one. You are perfect for the work I require of you. It is a great sacrifice. If it were not, it would have little effect on all those who come to hear you and pray with you. All those who know you and your family know, I could not have picked another more perfect for this job of sharing My words. You are not perfect, and so you know all I do through you is from God, just as others know the same.
You are continually impressed by all I am doing, and all My Mother does. As a result, much more will be given to you. The miracles on your farm will continue little one, through the faith and love of all who come there. Signs and wonders will continue to be given to My children. Know this, little one, faith begets miracles. The miracles are being poured out at this time as graces from Heaven. My Mother is instrumental in getting these things accomplished. She realizes how important it is for the children to be encouraged in many ways. So the miracles will continue, little one, on this farm that has been blessed by the presence of My Mother. This is only the beginning of these blessings, little one. It is not the end. Know that much more is in store for all those who come for prayer.
Times are difficult and much prayer is needed for the conversion of all God's children. Continue to be obedient and do all God asks of you. Many souls are being saved and brought ever closer to My Mother and to Me as a result of your sharing in God's plan. I love you, and bless you, little one. Go forth to spread the word of God.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Thank You for giving me the strength to get through this again.
Jesus: Go and speak My words and pray with My children. I will do the hard part. I will grant many miracles this night.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I will share what You have said.
Jesus: Let it be so.
Message of April 30, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for listening to our prayers.
Jesus: Child, I listen to all your prayers. I make no exception. All prayers are listened to.
Ruth Ann: I guess what I really mean is, thank You for answering our prayers. You know what I am referring to, so I really don't need to elaborate, but we are so grateful to You. Thank You for Your grace and mercy. Please continue to bless this person and the situation.
Jesus: Little one, those Who choose to follow Me and die of self experience the pain of My Death and Resurrection. The process is painful, but the result is one of great beauty. Remember, God can do all things. He can take the most difficult situation and turn it into one of grace. Good can come from evil, and darkness can be turned into light. So long as My children call upon and give Me free rein over their life, I can do much. The most humble and dejected of My children can become My best instruments. My children must be emptied of self before this process can be done to its fullest. Once it has been done, the purification, the molding can truly begin. This is not an easy process, but one that brings with it the love and compassion of all the Heavenlies. My Mother is especially touched to see someone who is willing to undergo this process. She will personally see to this person you are concerned about.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. That has given me much peace.
Jesus: Little one, you must learn to let go once you have prayed for the needs of others. Continue to pray but know that all is in God's hands. You have My word, and My word is truth. Only good things can come from one who has completely turned their life over to God. Sometimes self can get in the way of what God has planned for the individual, so that has to be emptied. The process is painful, but the perfection achieved is above all else that is. Be not afraid. For those who love God and are called in His plan, all things work out for good.
Ruth Ann: I believe, Lord.
Jesus: Those who are willing to accept the will and plan of God, no matter what, have earned great merit in the eyes of God. The graces and strength will continue to be heaped out in great abundance. The plan is unfolding. All things must come together so that all things be fulfilled. God's plan is perfect. Have no doubt as to what is to be.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for Your graces, strength, and mercy.
Jesus: Many see themselves in you, and they know God is working in your life in a mighty way. That gives them hope. Continue to be obedient and God will tend to all else. We love you and thank you for allowing God to use you as He does.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for being loving and patient with me, Lord.
Message of June 28, 1994,
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm having a difficult time listening.
Jesus: You have too many concerns on your mind. Empty yourself of all worries. Be open to what I have to say. I am your Jesus. I have many things to teach you, you need only listen. My children find it very difficult to do so because they are always anticipating the next project or something they have already done. They can't let go of those worldly things. Put everything in My hands, not just the bad, or the good, but everything in between. Rest in Me. Know that I am God, and will attend to all things in My time and in My way. All you need do is trust.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am learning, but I need to constantly be reminded. I struggle through so many things. I especially struggle through talks. I know I'm not a speaker, but that's just part of it. Mostly, I struggle because I have to open up myself to ridicule. My whole heart and soul is laid bare before those who come to listen.
Jesus: Little one, you have said to Me, "You only have one life to give, but if you could, you would die over and over for me." Little one, do you still not realize that you are doing just that? You have not made the connection, but you speak of each of these things you must do for Me as so humiliating. You compare it to a lamb being led to slaughter. Your comparison is accurate, little one. You die over and over for Me, for this is something you have offered to do on behalf of sinners all over the world. Great graces abound as a result, and the presence of the Holy Spirit is able to work through you in a mighty way. You are not alone, little one, you have Me and you have My Mother. You have the angels and the saints in Heaven who wish to assist you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, spiritually I may not be alone, but physically I am alone. No one else can speak for me, and no one else can do for me what You are asking me to do, so in one sense, I feel alone. It's compar-able to having a baby, Lord. There may be people there to help, but no one can give birth to the child except the Mother. I find this to be a very strenuous, painful ordeal as well.
Jesus: But when it is over, what a joy!
Ruth Ann: The relief is wonderful, Lord, that is true. So is the relief I feel once I have finished a talk, or a third Sunday prayer meeting, but it is only temporary, and then I must prepare again.
Jesus: Little one, if you only knew the graces being granted to those who come here to pray, or come to hear your talks. You would realize the importance of what you are doing. This is a great sacrifice. In a time when many of My children have forgotten what it is to make sacrifices, this is especially appreciated by Me.
Ruth Ann: Then that is all that is important, Lord. Continue to give me the graces to endure whatever You place before me. I am here to do Your will.
Jesus: I know your heart, little one, so I understand your feelings, desires, wants, and needs. Be at peace with whatever you must do.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am at peace with everything I must do most of the time. Even in the worst of situations, You seem to be there for me. I always survive.
Jesus: This is a lesson for all of My children, little one. When they read how difficult these things are for you to do, and you still do them, they too, will find courage in My love for them to go forth with their crosses, whatever they may be. Little one, each of My children have crosses. Some are greater than others, but each of My children have a cross to carry. Take courage from this, My children, and be brave. Know that I am here with you to help you with each cross, no matter how difficult it may be for you to carry. Trust in Me to assist you every step of the way on your path to salvation.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Thank You for sharing these encouraging words today. I love You and ask You for Your continued patience with me.
