Mar 1, 2006 - Jesus of Nazareth
The Rock, Shrine of Our Lady of the Island, Eastport, NY, Ash Wednesday, at 5:00pm
Again I invite you to walk with me in the Garden of Nazareth. Remember that this is the place where I first learned of my mission on behalf of the Father.
Now I invite you and all your brothers and sisters to take up your mission that I ask of each and every one of you in these exciting times in the history of humanity.
Many of you are becoming increasingly more aware of my presence among you. The veil is being lifted for those who now choose to follow me for there is much work to be done, and I want all of you to proceed forward with the fervor and love of the Father knowing that I am with you ever more closely on your journey in these times.
Now is the time for all of you to increase your commitment to a life of prayer and humility. Now is the time for you to recognize that many of your brothers and sisters have fallen by the wayside. Many of them are hurting and in despair because they do not know of my Love for them.
I am asking you my brothers and sisters who are now in the Light of the Saviour and Redeemer of the world to take up my Cross and bear it with me for the next 40 days in preparation for the return of my Love for you in every increasing ways.
It is during this time that I ask you to reach out to your family members and friends and spread the Good News of the Gospel that I am returning to humanity as I had promised you two thousand years ago.
You are now in the times of the fulfillment of my promise to walk with you again but not in the same way as before.
As you are walking with me now in the Garden of Nazareth, I am calling upon all of your brothers and sisters to also take this walk with me. There is no exclusion among the souls on the face of the earth to this invitation.
Through prayer and faith, through meditation and contemplation, and through the reception of the sacraments of the Church of St. Peter, each and every one of you can arise to the calling and begin the walk with me.
As those of you who have been following me with fervor and faith now know, I have been with you since before you were born and I continue with you along your journey in life. I am here with you every single second of every single day, guiding you and nurturing you; for I am calling upon you as a chosen one to carry the Cross with me as I have been carrying your cross and your burdens throughout you life.
If you do this for your Lord and Saviour, the rewards will be great. Do not think that the rewards will come in the material world. Put this world of material and substance behind you for I am calling you to walk with me in the world of the future. The walk with your Lord and Saviour in the Garden of Nazareth is only the beginning of a journey that will be exciting for you if you respond to my call.
I ask all of you to come on this journey with me by taking time in each and every day to pray with me and to pray with fervor and love. I ask you to pray to heal the world of all of its sins and to take up my Cross for all of your fellow brothers and sisters who are still living in sin. If you do these things for me, it will become easier and easier for you to join me on this walk in the Garden of Nazareth.
Think of this garden as a way post between heaven and earth where you can come to me with all of your suffering and pain, with all of your problems, and with all of your petitions for the future of the world.
As you turn your life over more fully to me, the journey to the Garden of Nazareth will become less and less difficult and the rewards will be greater and greater.
See how the beauty of God the Fathers vision created this place for you now; in this place that was designed for you specifically for the times in which you find yourself and the rest of humanity in the world today. The Garden of Nazareth is the place where you need to go to come closer to me and to walk with me.
I am waiting for you, all my brothers and sisters, to join with me here and take the walk with me as your Lord and Saviour. How merciful this journey will be for you if only you turn your life over to me. Trust in me as your Lord and Saviour to take away the fear, to show you your path, to develop your sense of your mission, and to teach you to walk with me into eternity.
At the end of the Garden of Nazareth is the eternal flame hovering on the horizon. Visualize this flame for it is the flame of the Love of the Eternal Father. Walk with me and follow the flame of the Father while you contemplate the mission that I ask of you while you are still walking the face of the earth. Know that when your life is finished here that I will be with you to walk into the eternal horizon and experience the love and splendour of the place that the Father has prepared for you as your eternal home.
I bide you farewell on your journey but know that I am here with you always!
Jesus of Nazareth"
Ned Dougherty's Near-Death Experience and His Visions of the Future
In his mid-thirties, Ned Dougherty (an Irish name, pronounced "Dock-erty") had everything: money, women, property, prestige, and power. He was a real estate broker for twenty-six years owning popular nightclubs in Palm Beach, Florida, and the Hampton's, Long Island's exclusive playground for the rich and famous. He lived in the fast lane every hour of the day, pursuing every pleasure money could buy. Despite his religious upbringing as a Roman Catholic, he had no interest in a spiritual life because he didn't believe in an afterlife.
He was too busy searching for a good time to be bothered with such things. This all changed on July 2, 1984 when he had a near-death experience (NDE) resulting from a heart attack after a heated - almost murderous - fist fight with a business associate.
Dougherty's NDE caused him to undergo a radical life transformation in which he gave up his nightclub business and party lifestyle and embraced his hitherto neglected Catholic religion. His NDE gave him a conscious awareness of his mission in life which was to embark upon charitable and missionary work. During his NDE, a wonderful "Lady of Light" (whom he identified as the Virgin Mary) revealed to him future global catastrophes many of which have already occurred which you will read in this article.
Today, Dougherty is a featured speaker, a former director and media spokesperson for the International Association for Near-Death Studies (www.iands.org). He also founded a spiritual center as revealed in his NDE called the Mission of Angels Foundation (www.fastlanetoheaven.com) through which he speaks on life-after-death issues, NDEs, Marian apparitions, and other spiritual matters.
He also hosts End Times Daily (www.endtimesdaily.com) - a Catholic news site focusing on eschatology - where he publishes interior locutions he has been receiving on a monthly basis since 2005.
Book: Fast Lane to Heaven: Celestial Encounters that Changed My Life
Published in March of 2001. This book documents his amazing NDE and visions of Earth's future.
