In TextEdit, I typed a sentence. I then brought up the Character Viewer (I don't seem to be able to get to emoji any other way, though using Mavericks 10.9.3 on a 2014 iMac), and placed an emoji character into the sentence--the bactrian camel, in this instance. I then selected the emoji in the sentence I wrote in TextEdit and went to the Font Size menu in ...

Open Messages and open the preferences. Select the Apple ID you want to delete and then sign out. No more messages should arrive from that point on. You could reboot if you want to be sure things are reset.
