From (Mrs.) IW @ US

Unfortunately, some people took the bait in Ferguson, MO.

This "boiling point," has been worked on for the last two months.  The devil was in those details. Unfortunately, another 16 year old black boy was killed by police a few days ago.  The video was shocking.  They just drove up and shot him. I have instructed my stepson to start reading Psalm 91.
 
I hope some real ministers of God speak for peace and prayer, before this pot boils over.  But, you have taught me not to be surprised at what I see.  I know, all we Can do now IS PRAY!
 
Have a Blessed Advent!

IW


We privately asked the following question to Mrs. IW:

When you state "I hope some real ministers of God" - do you mean "recognized" instead of "real" or did you actually mean "real"?

Mrs. IW then responded:

I mean REAL.

So many are not leading people to Christ, a REAL minister will.

Some of the "recognized" ministers I do not trust their motives.  I am sure you have heard of the TV show, "Preachers of LA."  It seems to be about the prosperity gospel, meaning monetary prosperity.  The Vatican is not the only one guilty in that arena.
 
I hope this clarifies how I am using the word "real". I see it as authentic, chosen, still on the path, like St. Paul or you.
 
Have a Blessed Week.  Looking forward to your response.

IW

A. Thank you for your clarification.

Here is the problem:  Real ministers of God are seldom, if ever!, recognized because what we preach is not what the masses want to hear. This is not new. Since Jesus had the same problem, what could any His real minister expect?

But, not to worry! God never makes mistakes. Those who have Ears to Hear and Eyes to See are very few and Jesus Christ clearly stated so:

[12] All things therefore whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you also to them. For this is the law and the prophets. [13] Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. [14] How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! [15] Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. [Matthew 7]

[23] And a certain man said to him: Lord, are they few that are saved? But he said to them: [24] Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able. [Luke 13]

He has made this so clear to me that now our main concerns have become to ensure that:

(a) the required information is on-line and available to all who shall seek it.
(b) the required information is presented in the simplest manner so that it will be comprehensible to all who need to know it.
(c) the precious few who are in our lists - the Apostles of the End of These Times - have additional inside information so that they - like you - utilize it, share it, and strive to live it in the manner that the Holy Spirit of God guides each one.

Right you are when you say: "The Vatican is not the only one guilty in the prosperity gospel arena".

They - Orthodox Catholic Administrators included -  are all essentially alike with a few exceptions noted, thanks be to God! We highlight the Vatican more because: (a) They claim that they are the only ones who can dispense salvation; and (b) Are the unquestionable masters of the "Prosperity Gospel".

Now.... someone may think or say: Wouldn't it be nice if the Elect did not have to be immersed in the world of religious, moral and financial frauds?

Yes; it would be nice but.... we would not be able to earn our Salvation by striving to live as our One and Only Saviour, Jesus Christ, taught us.

Remember - Salvation is not automatic. Jesus opened the Doors but we have to work our way to them and through them!

As we have often said - even satan must serve God!

Thank you for the opportunity to address this matter for our private readership.

Published on December 4th, 2014 [Eve of First Friday of the Month and Feast of St. Barbara (*)]

We are not forget for one minute..... the instructions Jesus gave to those who were to Evangelize:

[12] And when you come into the house, salute it, saying: Peace be to this house. [13] And if that house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you. [14] And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. [15] Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. [Matthew 10]

[11] And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you; going forth from thence, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony to them. [Mark 6]

[4] And whatsoever house you shall enter into, abide there, and depart not from thence. [5] And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off even the dust of your feet, for a testimony against them. [Luke 9]

We must present by word and example the Good News - not force them upon others. Jesus could not be any clearer than He has been on this particular issue.

Over the centuries many earned their sainthood by going against what they were supposed to be teaching.

Even if every Pope and Doctor of the Church have said otherwise - Jesus' crystal clear teachings always rule.

Have you heard that.... the Department of Homelad Security (DHS) and the CIA digital plan to delete emails and network surveillance records? (1)

The CIA and DHS want to destroy years worth of emails and other electronic records like Einstein (network surveillance) data. Cue the conspiracy theories about government cover-ups.

Since when do people object to the government deleting a stockpile of electronic records? Since the digital purge could possibly get rid of evidence that Einstein's network surveillance doesn't work like it should.

What better way to get rid of damning evidence than to delete the proof?  At least, that's the way some people are looking at the destruction of Einstein records and the potential nuking of years of DHS and CIA emails.

CIA and DHS want to obliterate most of their of emails

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) proposed preserving some files but destroying government records that lack "administrative, legal, research, or other value." It applies to portions of the Department of Defense and Department of Justice, and is agency-wide across the CIA and DHS, including TSA.

miguel de Portugal comments: There are enough arguments for both sides to keep the discussion going indefinitely.

We only have one comment: We doubt that any of those documents have information of greater sensitivity than what Edward Snowden has already made available to the general public and is yet to come.

A "nuke missileer" is the first to be charged in drug probe? (1)

The Air Force is court-martialing a nuclear missile launch officer on drug and obstruction-of-justice charges stemming from a criminal investigation that led to the disclosure last winter of a separate exam-cheating scandal that implicated nearly 100 nuclear officers.

2nd Lt. Nicole Dalmazzi of the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, is the first missileer, as launch officers are known, known to have been charged since the drug investigation was made public in January on the same day Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel visited the headquarters of the Air Force's land-based nuclear missile force.

miguel de Portugal comments: Another reminder of the insecurity outside the security that God provides.

Have you heard that.... Bergoglio told theologians: Listen to ordinary faithful

Pope Francis urged the Catholic Church's top theologians on Friday to listen to what ordinary Catholics have to say and pay attention to the "signs of the times," rather than just making pronouncements in an academic vacuum.

miguel de Portugal comments: The ONLY ONE that we have to listen to is Jesus Christ - PERIOD!

He just can't get it and never will!

From miguel de Portugal

Through the hard work of Mr. R.B.B. we have been able to bring up to date and reorganize the Index wherein we list all documents about Fatima that we have published over the years. You are invited to visit it and use it as needed.


Have you heard that.... hundreds of killings by police are not reported to FBI? (1)

More than 550 homicides by police officers between 2007 and 2012 were missing from the federal statistics or not attributed to the law enforcement agency involved, the Wall Street Journal reported.

This makes it nearly impossible to figure out how many people cops kill - justifiably or not - every year. The analysis comes at a time of heightened pressure for transparency from authorities, especially after the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in August.

To compile the report, the Journal looked at the internal figures of killings by police from 105 of the nation's 110 largest police departments (2). Apparently, five declined its request for access.

However....

We should also be aware that....
Hospital medical errors are now the third leading cause of death in the U.S.

Medical errors leading to patient death are much higher than previously thought, and may be as high as 400,000 deaths a year, according to a new study in the Journal of Patient Safety. (1) (2)

While motor vehicle deaths in the U.S. for the year 2012 amounted to 30,800. (3)

miguel de Portugal comments: We are not trying to justify inappropriate police behavior; we are trying to place all in the proper perspective. The lives of policemen are always on the line, while those who dispense hospital "care" never are.

Statistically speaking we are 4,000 times safer in a police car than in a hospital.

With that said....

We cannot help but wonder why..... the already developed non lethal weapons (1) are not being used to control rioting, whether Hong Kong, Ferguson or the proverbial Tinbuktu?

Why use rubber bullets, which can cause real damage, or live bullets, which can cause death, when there is something so safe and effective available; something which can even be more effective than tear gas?

Think about it and let the Holy Spirit of God show you why.

Sonic

Sonic and ultrasonic weapons (USW) are weapons of various types that use sound to injure, incapacitate, or kill an opponent.

xtremely high-power sound waves can disrupt or destroy the eardrums of a target and cause severe pain or disorientation. This is usually sufficient to incapacitate a person. Less powerful sound waves can cause humans to experience nausea or discomfort. The use of these frequencies to incapacitate persons has occurred both in counter-terrorist and crowd control settings.

The possibility of a device that produces frequency that causes vibration of the eyeballs — and therefore distortion of vision — was apparently confirmed by the work of engineer Vic Tandy....   [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_weapon]


Stun Guns

All About Stun Guns - Stun guns today are manufactured by major manufacturers like Streetwise, Stun Master and many more minor ones. Safety conscious consumers have more choices than ever before, when it comes to styles, designs, power capabilities, etc. but what is a stun gun?

A stun device is hand-held and uses low amperage and high-voltage with two or more prongs on one end. It sends a powerful electric current to an assailant which causes extreme pain and disruption of the nervous impulses that control muscle movement.

The muscles are overwhelmed causing an assailant to lose balance and become confused. Electrical current enters the assailants muscles, causing them to work rapidly and inefficiently, depleting his body of all blood sugars needed for energy. The result is debilitation lasting 10 minutes or more, enough time to get to safety. In theory, the higher the voltage the less time that you will need to apply to an attacker to get the desired effect.

There are six places that are best to apply a stun gun; the upper shoulder, lower rib cage and upper hip on both the right and left side-so six targets in all. Stun guns are proven over 95% effective, in independent studies. [http://www.guardian-self-defense.com/stungun_category.htm]

In case you still are wondering.... about how dangerous cyberspace is, we will share with you some personal figures.

We have just received our monthly Norton-Symantec Security System report.

Considering how little we navigate through cyberspace and how safe/bland are the sites that we visit, take a look at what we encountered:

1. Out of the 1,339,813 analyzed elements, our security system recognized (and blocked) 64,164 threats to our system.

2. Suffered 5,425 known attacks which were also blocked.

Just a reminder.


Do you wonder..... exactly what Our Lady of Fatima meant when She said: "In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved...", (1) considering the profound moral decadence that reigns in Portugal?

But first, let us review the moral state of today's Portuguese society:

First of all - to our great surprise - if you ask most Portuguese about the events of Fatima you will find that all they really know is that Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three little shepherds and maybe they know that there was some type of miracle... and that is it!

Secondly - the filth that is published in the general circulation newspapers and Sunday magazines in Portugal surpass any filth the man who now is m de P encountered the two times he visited a pornographic bookstore before his conversion.

Promoting amorality is best exemplified by this.... A TV Guide - week-end magazine (24-30 October 2014) - published by two, otherwise respectable, Portuguese newspapers feature on its cover story a local female celebrity. The extensive interview with her leads with (our translation):

"...(she) occupies a top place in the world of music, three marriages- with the last one being with another woman - and has five children"

Quite a role model for the Portuguese youth!

The same "family" magazine has full page ads for sex toys - with photographs and descriptions of their "wonders".

Another "family" magazine just published (6-12 December 2014) has various explicit full page sexual advertisements. 

We were told that such advertising in those "family" magazines is customary since they produce revenue.

Keep in mind - those family magazines are the ones which contain the TV Guide for the week so they are kept in the Portuguese homes until the next load of filth is published.

The classified section of the most read newspaper in Portugal (outside the sports publication) is sheer filth in images and words.

So then, what did Mary mean when She said
"In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved...", ? (1). It obviously had nothing to do with the wholesale depravation that is being sold to a willing public.

Let is place Her statement in the message and historical contexts. That phrase was part of:

"To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she (Russia) will spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecutions of the Church, the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated: finally my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, which will be converted, and peace will be granted to the world for some time. In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved, etc.

While the errors of Russia - communism - spread throughout the world as the result of inaction by the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) Administration (2), communism did not gain a foothold in Portugal. As a matter of fact, when the events of Fatima took place, Portugal was heading towards a communist like government. Instead it began a U-turn back to its fundamental Catholic faith.

That is - regardless of what was the response of the RCC Administration (2), Mary assured those who had eras to hera and eyes to see that communism would not infect Portugal thus "the dogma of the Faith would be preserved."  That is, Portugal would not become a communist nation - a satellite to the Soviet Empire.

What Mary said never meant that Portugal would be exempt from the moral decadence which now reigns supreme in the world - with Portugal close to the top of the list.

How do we know? God gave us the Light about this just a few weeks ago.

From (Mrs.) L.C.  @ US

Many years ago, I composed a little poem in honor of Our Lady.  It's quite appropriate for this Feast Day honoring Her Immaculate Conception.  I wanted to share it with you.  I hope you don't mind:

                           MARY'S "YES"              

Where would we be without Your "Yes," O Mary?
So humble, so pure, and so willing to carry,
The burden of knowledge that man, through his sin,
Would cause You and Your Son great pain time and again.

Had You said "No" to God, through Gabriel,
We would be lost, it's so easy to tell!

Thank You, O Mary, for Your tender Love,
For Jesus now sends us His Grace from above.
 
Amen.

Mind? Of course not!

We are delighted that you shared it with us and allowed us to post it.

From miguel de Portugal

The following prayer is one of our favorites; it also is a most powerful one. When it is offered with a humble and contrite heart, it is irresistible (*) to God. We highly recommend it.


A MORNING PRAYER

Father, I come to You this day asking You, in Jesus Name, to take me just as I am and transform me into the creature that You desire me to be.

Please send Your Holy Spirit to guide me throughout every day. O Lord, help me to be myself, striving to be better, and to look forward, in appreciation, to You, Father, for all Your blessings around me.

I ask Your help in honesty, to You, myself and others. I ask for the Grace to admit my faults. I ask Your forgiveness and Your Mercy and accept Your great love.

I ask You to help me read Your Word, Lord Jesus, and grant me the Grace to go by Your promises and facts, not my feelings.

Please help me today, Lord, to take the opportunities that You give me to share the goodness You have given me with others.

I thank You for this day, Lord, and for the additional time that You have given me.

Please help me to use it for Your Honor and your Glory, in Jesus Name I ask.

 Amen!

Could it be that...... Ratzinger's and Bergoglio's Honeymoon is over? (1)

Press reports noting that former Pope Benedict had "broken" his self-imposed silence to speak with a German newspaper may have missed the big story: a growing rift between the two pontiffs.

Pope Benedict XVI indicated in a Sunday interview with the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine that his views on marriage and divorce sharply diverged from those of his successor Pope Francis, and the Italian press was quick to report friction between the two.

But for his new collection of writings, Benedict said he "chooses to reformulate the conclusions and reiterate what I said as a cardinal and then as pope, namely the inviolability of the doctrine on the indissolubility of marriage, with its consequence in terms of admission to communion."

Benedict also said that he would have liked to be known after his resignation as "Father Benedict" to distinguish himself more clearly from the current pontiff.

Even though..... Opus Dei pulls few strings in Spanish business, the faith continues to die amongst the people.

On Sept. 27, over 200,000 people gathered outside Madrid for the beatification of Alvaro del Portillo, a Spanish priest who led Opus Dei 20 years ago. It was a rare public gathering in the homeland of a Catholic organisation which typically shuns publicity. The service was attended by Spain's Minister of the Interior and the Economy Minister. High-powered sponsors helped foot the bill. Conspiracy theorists sometimes suggest that Opus Dei is a secret powerhouse inside the economy.

It is easy to speculate, since members rarely declare their status publicly. Globally, membership of the personal prelature, the group's status inside the Roman Catholic Church, has grown from 60,000 to 90,000 members since 1975. A third of the total is in Spain, where numbers are stable.

Opus Dei can certainly put on a good show in Spain. But even if it has a core following, the country is steadily becoming more secular - 70 percent of the population say they are Catholic but just 13 percent of those that declare themselves members of a religion attend weekly mass and its economy more globalised. The trend looks set to continue.

The conservative government's recent retreat on tightening abortion rules is a sign of the new order - not one in which Opus Dei is likely to be a power-broker.

miguel de Portugal comments: This is a perfect example of the failed theology of the Opus Dei; a failure that can be heavily underscored when one brings to mind the true work of God through John Bosco.

Pure Catholicism even "sells" to the enemies of religion as John Bosco proved without a shred of a doubt.

What Escriva did was to retrofit the Catholic Faith into a Masonry framework, while what John Bosco did was retrofit the Catholic Faith into what Jesus Christ lived and taught.

Have you heard that..... Dynamo - Magician Impossible - said that he's not trying to recreate himself as Jesus? (1)

In his show Dynamo: Magician Impossible, this easy-going sorcerer visits different parts of the world inciting incredulity in the native populations.

In the show's first season he took a stroll on the River Thames. Two seasons later he was in Khayelitsha, outside Cape Town, where he conjured an impossibly full bucket of fish from what was previously a handful.

"When I spent time in Khayelitsha the one thing I found there was a yearning for food. So it felt only right that I should leave them with something of value. It was my way of giving back," he says.


miguel de Portugal comments: In this news article (1) one will see the reality of what he is doing and how it can easily lead to the falsification of the Second Coming. All it takes is someone placing the idea in his head and justifying it on the basis of relieving the suffering in the world - using the memories of his suffering as a child as the acceptance trigger.  Amazingly easy!

From miguel de Portugal

In a recent Divine Encouragement post we commented:

  ....whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. [Mark 11:24]

What you must also remember is that the procedure is not just like the "Abracadabra trick.

When God grants a request, He does it in a manner that is harmonious to all involved - whether they are known to you or not or whether they are aware of it or not.

Any action in this Universe requires an "adjustment" throughout its expanse. If God were to grant us what we request immediately - something would be amiss, somewhere, for someone.

Now, with that in mind let us take a look at a puzzling event that is reported in two of the Gospels. For the example we will use the Gospel of Mark:

[12] And the next day when they came out from Bethania, he was hungry. [13] And when he had seen afar off a fig tree having leaves, he came if perhaps he might find any thing on it. And when he was come to it, he found nothing but leaves. For it was not the time for figs. [14] And answering he said to it: May no man hereafter eat fruit of thee any more for ever. And his disciples heard it.

and

 [20] And when they passed by in the morning they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. [21] And Peter remembering, said to him: Rabbi, behold the fig tree, which thou didst curse, is withered away. [22] And Jesus answering, saith to them: Have the faith of God. [23] Amen I say to you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou removed and be cast into the sea, and shall not stagger in his heart, but believe, that whatsoever he saith shall be done; it shall be done unto him. [Mark 11]

Isn't it strange that Jesus would curse a fig tree - curse anything, for that matter? Isn't it strange that Jesus did not know that it was not time for figs? In those days - actually even today - most people who have been raised out of a city know when it is the season for each fruit variety... and Jesus - the Son of God would be ignorant of this? After all His Father IS the Creator!

Why would Jesus use such a negative prayer - a curse - to illustrate that if you "believe, that whatsoever he saith shall be done; it shall be done unto him"?

Could it be that He was making us aware precisely that:

(a) Any action in this Universe requires an "adjustment" throughout its expanse
(b) If God were to grant us what we request immediately - something would be amiss somewhere, for someone; and
(c) If we ask for something - without deferring to His Will - we may create havoc?

But, isn't it true that nothing happens in this Universe unless God allows it?

As we have explained in the past - we can say that God has two Wills: (a) An active Will; and (b) A passive Will.

The difference between those two manifestations of God's Will lies in the fact that when God grants something through His active Will, the result is perfect. When we ask for something that is wrong, He may allow it through His passive Will so that we learn a lesson that we would not learn otherwise. Anything granted via the passive Will of God will have collateral damages. Remember God's megaphone?

How can we then ensure that whatever we ask yields a perfect response? By always deferring to the Will of God. He knows what is best for us and He Will grant our request, invocation or pronouncement in a perfect manner with no collateral damage.

That was the hidden lesson in what we read in Mark 11.... and who knows? There may even be other lessons waiting to be unveiled.

Simple, isn't it? I thought so.... after He explained it to me!

P.S. If someone is now thinking: "If the above is true, how can I be protected from someone who wants to bring harm upon me?" Not to worry! On a future issue of this post, God Willing, we will answer that question. The concern is real because the possibility is real, however, God thought of that too and provided the necessary protection.... but it is likely that most have not noticed where it is explained in the Holy Scriptures.



Have you heard that.....
Spanish news are to vanish from Google News globally?

Google announced Thursday it will close Google News in Spain and block reports from Spanish publishers from more than 70 Google News international editions due to a new Spanish law requiring aggregators to pay to link content - a decision that will reverberate around the globe.

Google News in Spain will shut down on Dec. 16 - several weeks before a new Spanish intellectual property law takes effect Jan. 1 requiring news publishers to be paid.

That means people in Latin America, where Spanish news organizations have sought to boost their audiences, won't see news from Spain via Google News in Mexico or elsewhere. Also set to disappear are reports in English from Spanish publishers like Madrid's leading El Pais newspaper.

People who use Google's standard search in Spain and anywhere else around the world will still be able to find articles on their own from Spanish publications, because the law applies only to aggregators and not to individuals who do their own searches outside of Google News.

The decision by Google Inc. is the first shutdown since Google News debuted as an experimental project in 2002.

miguel de Portugal comments: Obviously Spain does not know who they are dealing with. Not even Opus Dei is a match for Google.

From (Mrs.) LC @ US

With reference to your post on the Board dated December 12th....

As I viewed the video God in Disguise,  what struck me even more than Dynamo's "tricks" were the expressions of awe and shocked disbelief on the faces of the witnesses.  They seemed to be completely mesmerized by what they were seeing.  Without even trying, Dynamo drew these people to him like a magnet.   

And that's what scares me more than anything else. 

Your words in the "Details" section of  the document which really struck me are:  "With the level of faith throughout Christendom at its lowest and the level of despair and ignorance of the masses at its highest, it is not hard to imagine how easy it will be to pass Steven Frayne as Jesus staging His Second Coming". 

It's easy for me to point the finger at those people and think things like:  "How can you be so gullible?  How can you be so blind?  How can you possibly let yourselves be taken in by this guy??" 

Then I remind myself:  "But for the Grace of God, go I…"

Miguel, if it wasn't for the information you so clearly provide for all to view, I would be as ignorant of the Real Truth as anyone else being "taken in" by Dynamo's "tricks". 

May God continue to bless you in abundance with His choicest Blessings and Graces. 

In Jesus' Holy Name,

LC

A.
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. As expected - that document did not "go viral", as the new saying goes, but that is the Will of God, otherwise those who must fall for that trap would be the wiser and not fall for it.  Let us not forget....

For the heart of this people is grown gross, and with their ears they have been dull of hearing, and their eyes they have shut: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. [Matt. 13:15]

On the other hand, we know that all who need to be alerted - directly from us or through our readership - will be.

You state:  "...what struck me even more than Dynamo's 'tricks' were the expressions of awe and shocked disbelief on the faces of the witnesses.  They seemed to be completely mesmerized by what they were seeing."

We share your feelings. That was what raised the proverbial red flag to the top of the mast. As we mentioned, we viewed every single episode of the first two seasons and "the expressions of awe and shocked disbelief on the faces of the witnesses" were a constant occurrence from people of all walks of life. Street unknowns as well a modern TV and movie luminaries.

That is why we say that, given the "go ahead", in 24 to 48 hours the world - with the exception of a handful - would be acclaiming him as Jesus.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to discuss this matter further.


In the last Did you know that....? post....  we closed it with a P.S. which read:

If someone is now thinking: "If the above is true, how can I be protected from someone who wants to bring harm upon me?"

Not to worry! On a future issue of this post, God Willing, we will answer that question. The concern is real because the possibility is real, however, God thought of that too and provided the necessary protection.... but it is likely that most have not noticed where it is explained in the Holy Scriptures.

As announced....

Here is the key to that protection which most Christians find hard to use:

But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you. [Matt. 5:44]
 
When you do so - including enemies and persecutorsabout whom you are not even aware of - what you are doing is essentially neutralizing their negative prayers and feelings (curses) directed to you.

If the individual's destiny is Heaven, not only you are shielded from harm but you are also paving their way to Heaven. If the destiny of the individual in question is eternal damnation, your prayer will not affect his/her destination but any evil invoked by said individual and directed to you will be blocked/neutralized.

Are All the Pieces Finally Falling Into Place? You decide!

Isn't it amazing..... how we may mindlessly repeat prayers or hear and see things that should make us ponder, yet we do not even notice?

A. Let us take the Apostle's Creed. Part of it reads as follows:
[take special notice of the underscore portions]

Under Pontius Pilate, He was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
   
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
 and the life everlasting.

Now then - what we have underscored is incorrect. Take a look at the way it should read:

Under the pontificate of Caiaphas, during the procuratorship of Pontius Pilate, He was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
   
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Faith,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
 and the life everlasting.

Notice that...

It was Caiaphas who was fully responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus - not Pontius Pilate.
The term for the Temple High Priest is pontificate. Sounds familiar?
"Hell" was done away with and has been replaced with "the dead".
What we believe in is the catholic Faith and not the catholic Church. The Holy Scriptures defines the term "church" as a gathering/grouping of Christians.

As you may see, by "fast talking" the faithful is brainwashed to believe that:

(a) it was Pilate who was responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus, when the responsible one was the Pontiff Caiaphas;
(b) "hell" does not exist;
(c) since the term "church" was cleverly redefined as the Administrators of the catholic Faith; then
(d) what the faithful solemnly acknowledge in the Apostle's Creed is that they believe in the Administrators of the catholic Faith just as we believe in the Holy Spirit, communion of saints, forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.

Clever, wasn't it?

But wait.... there is more. It seems that during the time when Jesus was crucified there were two functioning Pontiffs. Does that sound familiar? Doesn't it bring to mind  the Ratzinger-Bergoglio pair?  Take a look at the details.
 [our underscoring]

Caiaphas was the high priest of the Jews in the reign of Tiberius Caesar, at the beginning of the Lord's public ministry (Luke 3:2) and also at the time of His condemnation and crucifixion (Matt 26:3,57; etc.). He was appointed to this dignity through the curator Valerius Gratus and held it during the whole procuratorship of Pontius Pilate, but was deposed by the proconsul Vitellus, A.D. about 38. Caiaphas was the son-in-law of Annas, with whom he is coupled by Luke (see below). His wife was the daughter of Annas, or Ananus, who had formerly been high priest and who still possessed great influence and control in sacerdotal matters.

The expression in Luke 3:2, "In the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas," has led some to maintain that Annas and Caiaphas then discharged the functions of the high priesthood by turns; but this is not reconcilable with the statement of Josephus. Others think that Caiaphas is called high priest because he then actually exercised the functions of the office, and that Annas is so called because he formerly filled the position. But it does not thus appear why, of those who held the priesthood before Caiaphas, Annas in particular should be named, and not others who had served the office more recently than Annas. Meyer (Com., ad loc.) says: "Annas retained withal very weighty influence (John 18:12, sq.), so that not only did he continue to be called by the name, but, moreover, he also partially discharged the functions of high priest." Edersheim (life and Times of Jesus, 1:264): "The conjunction of the two names of Annas and Caiaphas probably indicates that, although Annas was deprived of the pontificate, he still continued to preside over the Sanhedrin" (cf. Acts 4:6).  (1)

Even if we tried we could not invent the above highlighted "Red Flags".


B. Now, let us take a look at the symbol of one of the most coveted automobiles - Mercedes Benz

Look at it....



Doesn't it look like the inverted body of someone who was crucified?

Although traditionally an inverted cross has been associated with Peter, who felt that, as an act of humility, he should not be crucified as our Lord but instead should  be crucified upside down, in modern times  (the times of Mercedes Benz) an inverted cross has become a symbol of satanists.

We leave the rest to your imagination.

Once again..... the coherence of the fundamental Biblical teachings shine through!

How many times have we read and heard...

In the New Testament:

And seek not you what you shall eat, or what you shall drink: and be not lifted up on high. For all these things do the nations of the world seek. But your Father knoweth that you have need of these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. [Luke 12:29-31]

and

In the Old Testament:

[7] And now, O Lord God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a child, and know not how to go out and come in. [8] And thy servant is in the midst of the people which thou hast chosen, an immense people, which cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude. [9] Give therefore to thy servant an understanding heart, to judge thy people, and discern between good and evil. For who shall be able to judge this people, thy people which is so numerous?....

[11] And the Lord said to Solomon: Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life or riches, nor the lives of thy enemies, but hast asked for thyself wisdom to discern judgment, [12] Behold I have done for thee according to thy words, and have given thee a wise and understanding heart,... [1 Kings 3]

There you have it! All that Solomon was seeking, first and foremost, was the Kingdom of God by having "...an understanding heart, to judge thy people, and discern between good and evil".... and just as God, in the Person of Jesus, promised to all of us, all else - "long life or riches, nor the lives of thy enemies".... was "...added unto..." Solomon.

That is - such an experience was not only for Solomon, son of David; it is available to all who truly seek the Kingdom of God.


Did you know that.... the four countries from which most visitors reach our pages are, in descending order: United States, China, Russia and France. The other 100 + countries provide the rest of the visitors.

In easier to understand numbers....

If those four countries were the only ones providing readers to our pages, the percentage distribution would be as follows:

United States - 59 % ; (People's Republic of) China - 15 % ; Russia 14 % and France 12 %


From (Mrs.) PD @ US

With reference to your recent post comparing the Mercedes Benz symbol with an inverted crucified body....

The often used peace sign also looks like an inverted crucified body.

In the 1950s the "peace sign", as it is known today, was designed as the logo for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and adopted by anti-war and counterculture activists in the United States and elsewhere.

PD

A. Thank you for reminding us of the other use of the symbol in question.

How could have we forgotten that? miguel was at the "national debut" of the "peace sign" during the sixties at the University of California, Berkeley Campus.


Did you know that.... the Treasury Department Seeking Survival Kits For Bank Employees? (1)

The Department of Treasury is seeking to order survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system, according to a new solicitation.

The emergency supplies would be for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), which conducts on-site reviews of banks throughout the country. The survival kit includes everything from water purification tablets to solar blankets.

The survival kits must come in a fanny-pack or backpack that can fit all of the items, including a 33-piece personal first aid kit with “decongestant tablets,” a variety of bandages, and medicines.

Survival kits will be delivered to every major bank in the United States including Bank of America, American Express Bank, BMO Financial Corp., Capitol One Financial Corporation, Citigroup, Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Company, and Wells Fargo.

Items will also be delivered to OCC offices across the country, from Champaign, Ill. to Billings, Mont. The agency also has offices in Sioux City, Iowa; Joplin, Mo.; and Fargo, N.D.

It is not clear why the Treasury Department is ordering the kits. Contracts for survival kits are usually made for the military, or law enforcement such as the FBI. The OCC did not return request for comment before publication of this story.


miguel de Portugal comments: Could this be related in any way to the fact that China's leader is telling the People's Liberation Army to prepare for war? (2)

Chinese President Xi Jinping's recent statements have been alarming China's neighbors. What's behind them?

These repeated calls have alarmed China's neighbors from New Delhi to Washington. The question on everyone's mind: what is all this preparation for?

Is the Chinese leadership preparing for something? Are they gearing up for a military operation, or merely the option to carry one out? Or is there a more innocent explanation for all of this?

Of course, we are not losing any sleep over it. We are just focused on seeking the Kingdom of God in all things; therefore, we do not have the slightest doubt that all else that we may need will be added as a logical Divine consequence.

The world-wide disaster  is going to happen, one way or another, so let us focus on seeking the Kingdom of God in all things.
