These Notebooks, Close to My Love, Should Be Your Daily Bread

My daughter, so beloved. You all ask Me, why this avalanche of messages? I do not want to sadden you, although I said that My messages had ended for the group, I had My reasons for it.

The messages for the second book ended in September, three months have passed and you are still thinking about printing it. How do you think I will settle your problems if you all do not devote yourselves to Mine? I am not angry; I love you too much. Do not think like that; it is only that I feel defrauded. It was not impossible to work on it; simply you have not thought about the fact that the origin of things is always tightly united to the vital beginning that proceeds from Me and without this beginning, nothing exists. If you all had placed first things first, many things would be resolved.

Do not attempt to read this – what we have been working on – to anyone, until the last book is edited. What are you waiting for? There is paper and the necessary machines. When your matters are urgent, you rush to solve them. And Mine? Can they wait? Can they be postponed?

Do not be sad, I assure you that it is not your fault but, upon concluding these messages, I will cease this type of communication with you… It is a necessary part of your growth. Believe in Me; I want to educate you and with you whoever wants to be educated. My intentions, My Will is for you to learn to find Me and converse with Me in another way…

Trust Me, give Me your hand, just like up to now, blindly of your Savior’s hand… And you, do you love Me?

These notebooks, beside My Love, should be your daily bread and nourishment of those to whom your reading matter is destined. I will guide you, do not be afraid, My little one.

In 1999 Katya Rivas was the subject of a top-rating documentary show hosted by Mike Willessee (see Scoop TV review - Jesus Christ Tells FOXNews He Wants To Hug World and Scoop Images ). More recently Rivas says she was instructed by Jesus to have her books translated and published on the internet with the intention of having the books distributed to as wide an audience as possible. Several of the books can now be read online at, and more are coming soon. In August 2002 Rivas visited Wellington New Zealand and met with Scoop Editor Alastair Thompson.
