From miguel de Portugal

From time to time we have engaged in a one-to-one exchange with one of our readers as the result of our burning desire to help them.

Occasionally some have been offended by the brief and direct style in our response/comments.

Since most of our communications are with a vast general public via our postings and documents, we are not set up to communicate on a one-to-one basis while dealing with individual situations.

Therefore, it is best that we continue to function as our rule calls for, instead of making exceptions which may lead to discomfort since we are very short in time thus the composition of our response may be a bit direct and, to some, undiplomatic.

Our readers are welcome to continue writing to us regarding private family matters, as some have done in the past. This time, however, there will not be any personalized response.

The contents of the Divine Encouragement pages, as well as whatever we address on the particular Forum, will be used by God to bring relief and consolation to those who are in need of it. After all, all of this is about God and not about miguel!

Should we receive a communication that would be of universal interest to our readers, we would contact the sender for the appropriate approval. Then we will address it in this Forum.

The lack of response will not, in any way, imply agreement or disagreement with the contents of the communication.


Do you realize that... the prophecy in Old Testament reading for the Mass offered to celebrate the Presentation of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Temple has only a lightly symbolic relation to that glorious event?

Instead, that prophecy via Malachi refers to the Secod Coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ. To wit:

[1] Behold I send my angel, and he shall prepare the way before my face. And presently the Lord, whom you seek, and the angel of the testament, whom you desire, shall come to his temple. Behold he cometh, saith the Lord of hosts. [2] And who shall be able to think of the day of his coming? and who shall stand to see him? for he is like a refining fire, and like the fuller' s herb:

[3] And he shall sit refining and cleansing the silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and shall refine them as gold, and as silver, and they shall offer sacrifices to the Lord in justice. [4] And the sacrifice of Juda and of Jerusalem shall please the Lord, as in the days of old, and in the ancient years. [5] And I will come to you in judgment, and will be a speedy witness against sorcerers, and adulterers, and false swearers, and them that oppress the hireling in his wages; the widows, and the fatherless: and oppress the stranger, and have not feared me, saith the Lord of hosts. [Malachi 3]

The true fulfillment of Malachi's prophecy will come to pass at His Second Coming.

Just a reminder...


It seems that.... those professionals who are seeking to contact extraterrestial life - SETI (1) - may be thinking about throwing in the towel.

Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer and Director of the Center for SETI Research writes: (2)

There's plenty of real estate for extraterrestrial life, right?

Well, maybe not. An article recently published in the journal Physical Review Letters argues that much of the universe could be off-limits to complex biology.

The reason isn't a lack of worlds. ....two astrophysicists think that environmental catastrophe on a massive scale may greatly constrict just how many planets will ever beget multicellular life. They say that most of the universe will be devoid of any critters bigger than a paramecium.

The catastrophe in question is called a gamma ray burst (GRB).

The two researchers worked out the details of this unhappy scenario, and in particular decided where the danger from GRBs is greatest. Their conclusion is that you don't want to be too near the center of your galaxy, and "too near" means closer than 10 thousand light-years. Otherwise, the chance is high that, even if your planet is on its way to producing trilobites or tyrannosauri, it's not going to get there. Their predecessors will be fried by a GRB. This woeful computation suggests that we might not have very much clever company in space.

Nonetheless, Mr.. Shostak still is inclined to see the glass as still mostly full.

miguel de Portugal comments: Although he claims that he wants to see the glass mostly full, the fact that a senior astronomer from SETI  even considers the possibility that they are spinning their wheels speak volumes.

We publish this as a matter of curiosity since it really does not matter one way or another.

Have you heard that..... Bill Gates Is Worried About the Rise of the Machines? (1)

He may be one of the world's pivotal computing pioneers, mentioned in the same exuberantly geeky breath as Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Tim Berners-Lee. His technological exploits may have earned him over $80 billion, making him the world’s richest man. Yet even Bill Gates is somewhat concerned about the potentially destructive power of technology.

I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence. First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk (2) and some others on this and don't understand why some people are not concerned.

miguel de Portugal comments: Wisest words we have not heard from world's movers and shakers of such level in a very long time. Good for them! Of course, their concern has been and will continue to be ignored.

Although artificial intelligence really does not matter one way or another anymore, it does show that Bill Gates is more than just a computer whiz kid.

Did you know that....  2,500 Year Old Jewish Tablets Have Been Discovered in Iraq? (1)

Now for the first time, one hundred and ten, 2,500 year old Babylonian tablets have been discovered in Iraq which provide a glimpse of Jewish life in Babylonian exile. Put simply, the tablets corroborate the Biblical tale. They describe a town called Al-Yahudu i.e., "the village of the Jews", by the river Chebar, mentioned  in Ezekiel 1:1.

They also attest to Judaic names such as "Gedalyahu", "Hanan", "Dana", "Shaltiel" and a man with the same name as Israel's current Prime Minister, "Netanyahu". The "yahu" ending to these names is called "theophoric", meaning, they attest to a belief in the God of the Torah, by including part of God's name in people's personal names.

The tablets also record everyday business transactions and witness to the Jewish return to Jerusalem (Nehemiah 6:15-16), as commemorated in personal names such as "Yashuv Zadik", meaning, "the righteous shall return [to Zion]".

This discovery is a remarkable confirmation of the historical reliability of the Biblical text. It is also a reminder that many people once lived in Iraq. Today, there are still remnants of some of these people: Jews, Christians, Mandeans (the last remaining followers of John the Baptist) and Yazidis, an ancient people whose beliefs combine elements of Zoroastrianism, the pre-Islamic religion of Persia, early Christianity and Judaism. All these ethnic survivors are now facing massacres, crucifixions, rape and decapitation.

Do we dare let them disappear?

miguel de Portugal comments: "Do we dare let them disappear" the author of the article asks?

The answer is brief and simple: If there is no money to be made by the World Masters, they will all disappear unless God stops this madness and does it Pronto!

Well, well, well..... as it turns out now, a father of Liberation Theology,
a movement which had its roots well planted on the left camp and who tried - using the wrong means - to stop the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church endorsed extreme right Latin America governments, Archbishop Oscar Romero, who is up for beatification, allegedly wrote to H.H. Paul VI seeking Josemaría Escrivá beatification the moment he died.

Among the lesser-known facts of Romero is his close relationship with conservative Catholic movement Opus Dei.

He received weekly spiritual direction from an Opus Dei priest, was indispensable in the opening of the first residence for students this movement opened in El Salvador, and in 1975, after the death of its founder, Josemaría Escrivá, Romero sent a letter to Paul VI asking the pope to jump-start his canonization process. (1)

(sarcasm on) When will the Virgin Mary appear to announce to the world that Jesus has ceded His Seat at the right Hand of the Father to Escrivá? (sarcasm off)

Believe me - if we did not have to be informed and report about these matters, I would avoid them as a plague! The spiritual effect it has on me is similar to the physical effect of syrup of ipecac.

As miguel was recently explaining to a collaborator:

I believe in God because I know God; I practice the Catholic Faith because I know it is the most complete Faith available to man, because, if not, with I have seen and experienced in the las 30 years (2) in organized religion, I would be an atheist.

God took me in a journey of Faith; organized religion took me on a journey of disgust and revulsion, lies and deceit (very few exceptions noted).

May God be praised for the generosity He showed me in calling me to His service and for giving us the opportunity to help others find what I know for a fact to be true.

....and last but not least.....


Four hours after.... we had composed the above entries we received, from a regular visitor to our pages, a link to a site called: What is so Bad about Christianity? (1)

It is an extensive "bashing Christianity" site. We just briefly looked at the index and we saw one section which fully illustrates what we keep warning all about. It follows:

The Record of Christianity

In line with the Moral Argument already mentioned, if Christianity was the one true religion, or was divinely inspired, then Christians should be able to demonstrate a superior morality and a superior moral record. Thus Christians would have a better record on Social Issues (such as Slavery, Racism, Capital Punishment, Penal Reform, Physical Abuse, Treatment of Women, Contraception, Abortion, Divorce, Family Values, Children, Romanies, The Physically Ill, The Mentally Ill, The Poor, Animals, and the Environment).

Christians would have endured Persecutions of Christians without carrying out Persecutions themselves. Again, Christians would have a good influence on the governance of Christian States (for example creating a constructive Symbiosis between Church & State, not Meddling in National Governments, and exercising a positive influence in politics).

Christians would have exercised a sensitive and positive influence over all aspects of Sex, would have promoted research into Science & Medicine, would have a record of opposing Violence & Warfare, and no record of Cultural Vandalism. As Christianity does not always live up to expectations, some Possible Explanations are considered and the evidence Summed up.

That is exactly the way outsiders see Christianity and which causes its rejection by those who would otherwise embrace the Faith. The problem with their perception is that what they are addressing is applied Christianity, which  has very little to do with true Christianity.

Unfortunately these people - and many others - reject true Christianity based on what they see - an adulteration of the true Christian Faith; an adulteration which  we denounce day in and day out!

We must live our faith and, in so doing, be living witnesses of what Jesus Christ clearly taught us. When we do that, those who are counted among the Elect, but are still away from the Faith because of what they see, will rush to embrace Christianity with great fervor.

From (Mrs.) LG @ US

I was sent a link (1) which goes into detail about the devil worship occult prominent in the entertainment industry and how they have and continue to perform these rituals for unsuspecting souls to participate in - even if they have no idea what they are watching - in the hopes that they will spiritually wound souls and release any inner demons.

This evil and mockery is blatant, and God does not deserve this.

I know I watched the super bowl half-time show and was completely disturbed by it yet couldn't put my finger on it. Now after reading this article and viewing the video, I became even more disturbed.

I am most upset because I may have disappointed God in my ignorance. Thanks to your persistent publishing of important spiritual information, I know that prayer and fasting are the only remedies. Not only for ourselves, but more importantly, for the individuals promoting the sin.

Whether you find this worthy or not to mention or comment for the sake of your viewers, I am confident that you will do what God desires. Thank you again for your time.

Most sincerely in Christ,

LG

A. Thank you for sharing this with us and granting us the authorization to share your letter will all.

Perhaps many have not realized what you witnessed (and are sharing with us) and need to understand the importance of having a reaction like you had "I.... was completely disturbed by it yet couldn't put my finger on it".

 The Holy Spirit identified the danger for you and now you know exactly how it feels. Next time - the moment another situation is identified likewise by the Holy Spirit within you, you will know what to do at once.

Whereas the promotion of darkness has been with man since what the fall of Adam and Eve represent, it has accelerated to the point where the general public have a hard time escaping its influence. Thus the need to make a home for the Holy Spirit of God in our heart and soul so that we are warned - just as you were - that there was something wrong with what you were seeing/experiencing.

As we have been warning the world for seventeen years in cyberspace: The False Christ will be so real and convincing that unless a person has that interior warning he/she will fall into the trap. Tragically most will since few realize that only through sincere prayer and fasting - which lead to a Christ like life -  the wayis paved  for the Holy Spirit of God to make a permanent abode in our heart and soul.

We worry about having car, house and health insurance, yet, the most important insurance that we should have, few do have it, even though Jesus pointed out for all the need for it.


[28] And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell. [29] Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and not one of them shall fall on the ground without your Father. [Matthew 10]

and

[4] And I say to you, my friends: Be not afraid of them who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. [5] But I will shew you whom you shall fear: fear ye him, who after he hath killed, hath power to cast into hell. Yea, I say to you, fear him. [Luke 12]

We are not saying that we should not have car, house and health insurance; what we are saying is that the priority of most is wrong. We should place as number one priority the "insurance" for our soul, then all else will be taken care of in accordance to the Will of God and our state in Time.

Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. [Matthew 6:33]

As you can see, we are not teaching anything new.... we are only teaching what the children of God should have been taught for the last 1,600 years and were not!

Once again - Thank you! for the opportunity your communication gave us to share the above with all.

Were you aware that.... the number of homeless reaches record 60,000 in New York? (1)

 New York may be famous abroad for glitz, glamor and Park Avenue billionaires but America's biggest city has passed a grim milestone -- a record 60,000 people are homeless.

In November, there were 60,352 homeless people in the city, including 25,000 children, up more than 10 percent on the 53,615 who were homeless in January 2014, according to the website for charity Coalition for the Homeless.

miguel de Portugal comments: Why doesn't the ultra rich Archdiocese of New York sell a fraction of their real estate holdings and use the money to set up a program to minimize this tragedy? We are talking about over 40 % of them being children!

The answer is simple: Because they are not what they claim to be - "Christians".

Yes; Jesus indeed say: 

For the poor you have always with you:.....

.....but
, in the same breath, He also said:

 ....and whensoever you will, you may do them good:  [Mark 14:7]

How many people are out there praying to God - n a daily basis -  to somehow provide these poor people the spiritual and material needs which our iniquity and greed has taken away from them?

Answer: Precious few because otherwise the problem would have been solved. Unless, of course, Jesus lied..... which He certainly did not!

We have heard that... there has been a Marian manifestations in Iraq visible to all; specifically over the town of Alqosh on the night of Wednesday, January 21st, 2015.

 The Assyrian Christian town of Alqosh  is one of the only regions in this part of Northern Iraq that has not succumbed to the threat of ISIS.

An interesting feature is that they were centered on the town of Alqosh (Elkosh in ancient Hebrew), which was the hometown of the biblical Prophet Nahum, which lay just a few miles north of the city of Nineveh.

The moment we heard about it a message "flashed" before our eyes: "World, your time is up! You have been given enough warnings but to no avail. For your own good, your world, as it is now, will come to an end."

 The first time Nineveh was not destroyed because all its citizens - the King included - paid attention to the warnings given by God through the prophet Jonas. However, eventually it was destroyed for the same reasons it was going to be destroyed the first time since its residents returned to their old ways.

Mary - through Her intercessions - has been delaying the consequences of our sins. No; not delaying the wrath of God - we say, and mean, delaying the consequence of our sins. God is only Love and Mercy. Tragically, humanity has proven that no matter how much time it is given, instead of returning to God it is getting worse.

Therefore, "....unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened" [Matthew 24:22]

It would be interesting to see if the Christian community of
Alqosh will do what those in Constantinople did in the year 911 A.D. saving Constantinople. However, we seriously doubt that they will even try it. Look what happened with the warnings and visions given in Kibeho - nothing really was done and the massacre of Rwanda followed.


From miguel de Portugal

The Old Testament is full of warnings about the wrath of God. In the New Testament we often hear Jesus use similar techniques in parables to get His point across:

[32] Then his lord called him; and said to him: Thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all the debt, because thou besoughtest me: [33] Shouldst not thou then have had compassion also on thy fellow servant, even as I had compassion on thee? [34] And his lord being angry, delivered him to the torturers until he paid all the debt. [Matthew 18]

Nonetheless, we assure you - with greater certainty than that the Sun will rise tomorrow - that God is only Love and Mercy, so, why so much violent talk?

To get the necessary points across during the Old Testament and New Testament days. God had to use imagery that the mostly ignorant people of those times could understand.

As we have explained more times that I can remember, if one jumps down form an elevated point and hurt himself, it was not because the Law of Gravity is wrathful. It happened because the Law of Gravity was ignored/violated and the consequences of ignoring/violating such law is hurting oneself. However, as many can testify to, God can intervene and the damages could be minimized or simply non existent.

God gave us a very simple list of What to Do and What Not to Do. Think if it as the "Manual of Instructions" for a human being to safely navigate through Time.

If those instructions (read: Divine Laws) are not followed, there will be consequences with varying degrees of pain/suffering - depending on His Mercy in Action.

What can only minimize the suffering resulting from ignoring those "instructions for the man made in the image of God", is Mercy; and Mercy is the offspring of Love, which Is what God Is!

The above sums up, in its totality, the interaction between God and man. PERIOD!

I have had a micro taste of the sorrows our Lord Jesus Christ and His Most Holy Mother experience when they have to witness the consequences that we - whom They love so intensely - have to suffer for violating Divine Law. It is heart breaking. Mary has told humanity about Her suffering many, many times yet, as most of Her words are, it has been ignored.

Anyone who may think that God enjoys seeing His Creation suffer needs urgent psychological help.

We have heard that... a increase in wildfires in Ukraine may resurrect Chernobyl's radiation. (1)

Fallout from the world's worst nuclear accident just won't go away. Radioactive clouds may once again spread over Europe, as rising fires release radiation locked up in the upper layers of soil in the dense forests near Chernobyl in Ukraine and Belarus.

They estimate that of the 85 petabecquerels (PBq) of radioactive caesium released by the Chernobyl accident, between 2 and 8 PBq still lurk in the upper layer of soil in the exclusion zone.

"The simulation probably underestimates the potential risks," says Ian Fairlie, former head of the UK government's radiation risk committee,....

miguel de Portugal comments: As if the Ukrainians - and the rest of the world - did not have enough reasons to pray for already!

From (Mrs.) IW @ US

A very sobering topic is heavy on my mind at this time. - It's suicide.

There doesn't seem to be an end in sight to this tragedy.  The news is rife with reports of people taking their own lives.

We are all familiar with the more common means used by those attempting suicide:  drug overdoses, gunshot wounds to the head, hangings, even jumping in front of trains, etc.

But what follows is beyond comprehension. (We chose not to print "what follows")

I am praying for first responders in a much more intense way ever since Jennifer took this job as dispatcher, as well as praying for all dispatchers, too.  I had no idea how crucial is their role as intermediaries between distraught people and the police.

IW

A.
Indeed suicide has become a plague as despair and isolation of self (Thanks to individuals like Steve Jobs (1), Bill Gates and the like) increases. Being  "Despair" the proverbial middle name of satan, we have to pray, fast and sacrifice much so that fewer people fall into that trap.

But satan is not worried - he has the fools from The Doomsday Clock announcing that is ticking again (2). "It is now three minutes to 'midnight,' a.k.a the end of humanity."

Notice that they say "end of humanity" and not the "end of these times".

No wonder Jesus made an effort to inform us that:


And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect which he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. [Mark 13:20]   

Of course, it will be "no pic-nic" just as He warned us:

For in those days shall be such tribulations, as were not from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, neither shall be. [Mark 13:19]

But it will not be the end of humanity. For that we will have to wait until the year 2832.

On the last posting we spoke about... the God of Mercy and Love while dismounting the created by man Wrathful God.

Well, He is so absolutely Great that He has let us determine the rules that will apply at our Final - and quite individual -  Judgment.

Remember what we tell Him every time we offer the Lord's Prayer?

"Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us," (1)

Well, that is exactly how He will forgive our sins.

We cannot bank on His Mercy bailing us out after we have mouthed that prayer many times because He also said:

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. [Matthew 5:7]

Brethren, we are not making up "that stuff", as some may say. We are only trying to remind all that we at the doors of what Jesus prepared His Elect for. Pass it on!

From miguel de Portugal

There are many rumors circulating in the world regarding "The End",  the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and a worldwide conspiracies.

The number and variety of these rumors are only surpassed by the number of visionaries transmitting messages on behalf of the Virgin Mary, Our Lord Jesus Christ and The Father. Heavenly Messages which may be incoherent with the Holy Scriptures and legitimate Heavenly Apparitions.

Sometimes one wonders if these visionaries think that Our Lady of Fatima never met Our Lady of La Salette, and that both think that Our Lady of Medjugorje and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel at Garabandal are just a couple of upstarts and that the four of them have no clue as to the contents of the Sacred Scriptures.

If the situation were not so serious it would make a comedy script for another anti-Catholic movie. Should we wonder why Catholics have become the targets of abuse and ridicule?

Yes, many terrible things will happen and are happening, but, as we begin to understand what is really taking place and choose to draw closer to God, then fear will dissipate and the Peace of God will flood our souls.

The following two documents were designed with the intent of bringing some internal and external coherence to the subject matter at hand. We pray that you take advantage of this information and that it brings you some measure of peace, which, in turn, you may share with others.

Have you heard that..... Vatican's finance czar reported $1.5 billion in hidden assets? (1)

Pope Francis' finance czar today informed fellow members of the College of Cardinals that the Vatican has more than $1.5 billion in assets it didn’t previously know it possessed, although that potential windfall has to be balanced against a projected deficit of almost $1 billion in its pension fund.

The discoveries mean that the Vatican's total assets rise to more than $3 billion, roughly one-third more than previously reported.

The cardinals were also informed that the Vatican's real estate holdings may be undervalued by a factor of four, meaning that the overall financial health of the Vatican may be considerably rosier than was previously believed.

miguel de Portugal comments: A deficit of almost $1 billion in its pension fund????

Real Estate holdings undervalued by a factor of four????

$1.5 billion in hidden assets?????

Not surprising to us; actually, we are sure that is even worse now that we have a real handle in their immense wealth in Europe. To them the Good News is "money in the bank" and let the poor "eat cake" as French Queen Marie Antoinette is claimed to have said.

We must admit, however, that making it public is a step in the right direction. It is a shame that is too little and far too late for them.

You are invited to...
. view a moving illustration of how God's Megaphone works  and what the Prophet Isaiah spoke about.

Of course, the question is: How many of the faithful at large (not necessarily those who will receive this page via mail) will recognize it. For that matter, even believe that the Chastisemnt will take place.

Well, as long as we do our part as best as possible, we will be at peace.



Isn't it interesting that.....
John the Evangelist was the only Apostle not to be martyred?

Could there be a relation between that and the fact that:

(a) John was the only Apostle referred to as the one who Jesus loved; and
(b) John was the only Apostle not to be afraid to be at the foot of the Cross; and
(c) It was John - or the figure/symbol of John -  who was referred to when Jesus said "Woman, behold thy son." and  "Behold thy mother."

Maybe the following Scripture verses hold the clue to such uniqueness:

If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him. [John 14:23]

and

....the love wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them. [John 17:26]

Think about it!



Shhh, not in front of the TV!....
. Samsung may be eavesdropping on you. (1)

Samsung's Smart TV may be a little too smart for its own good.

Tucked into the privacy policy of the South Korean electronics behemoth's Smart TV are a few paragraphs that may send chills down the spine of some consumers:

"Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition."

According to the document, the unit's voice recognition protocols can "capture voice commands and associated texts so that [Samsung] can provide you with Voice Recognition features and evaluate and improve the features."


miguel de Portugal comments: And to think that people trust those "Oh, so free!" long distance telephone conversations using Skype and like systems. We are sure that more compromisings statements are made via those "free" long distance communications than will ever be uttered before a Samsung Smart TV set.

Do I hear a cackling followed by a "Gotcha!" in the background?

From miguel de Portugal

The first reading of today's Mass - Deuteronomy 30:15-20 - sums up in six simple verses the Good News and illustrates the fallacy of a "wrathful God".

Consider that I have set before thee this day life and good, and on the other hand death and evil:

That thou mayst love the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways, and keep his commandments and ceremonies and judgments, and thou mayst live, and he may multiply thee, and bless thee in the land, which thou shalt go in to possess.

But if thy heart be turned away, so that thou wilt not hear, and being deceived with error thou adore strange gods, and serve them:  I foretell thee this day that thou shalt perish, and shalt remain but a short time in the land, to which thou shalt pass over the Jordan, and shalt go in to possess it.

I call heaven and earth to witness this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Choose therefore life, that both thou and thy seed may live:  And that thou mayst love the Lord thy God, and obey his voice, and adhere to him (for he is thy life, and the length of thy days,) that thou mayst dwell in the land, for which the Lord swore to thy fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that he would give it them.

Of course that promise applies to the Elect - whose composition and territorial possessions have been evolving over time as we have amply shown. A group which today is comprised by those who truly believe that Jesus Christ is indeed our Savior - a belief proven by acts and not just words.

3,500 years later most people still do not get the message even though it was spelled out by the Messiah Himself through audible words and visible acts.

Amazing! Simply amazing!


We  hear everyone from... the Vatican to Paris to Washington to Berlin giving "lip service" to the atrocities committed by ISIL as they continue their reign of brutality and territorial gains, yet they are not moving a real finger to stop them cold on their tracks. For example:

* ISIS control of Syria reportedly expands since start of US-led air strikes (1)
* Terror group seizes Iraqi town 5 miles from Marine base (2)
* ISIS expands its activities in North Africa (3)

We only see two options:

(a) If enough alleged Christians would believe what Jesus Christ said and act upon it through prayer, fasting and sacrifice, ISIL would be stopped cold on their tracks. The promotion of this pious behavior should be the number one priority of the Administration of any Christian faith. Unfortunately they really do not believe in His Words; they just believe in how much money they can make using His Words.

(b) For those who war and violence is the usual option: Why do they keep worrying about Mars, the Space Station, the CERN particle accelerator, landing on asteroids, and developing expensive and Stars Wars like weapons, when what they have to do is use all that military and technological might, bought with the sweat of all taxpayers, and neutralized ISIL and all their supporters?

We believe in, and practice option (a) (4) but we denounce the cries and empty statements of  those whose option has traditionally been (b) yet do nothing as innocent people are being brutalized and turned into the posthumous stars in a Sadistic Reality TV Show.

Yes; there is a middle ground mentality between options (a) and (b) and, although it contains a level of violence, it would greatly minimize the level of suffering of innocents.

This middle ground mentality was used to defeat Germany and Japan. Key German cities were turned into rubble while two Japanese cities were destroyed with only one strike in each.

If that had not been done, the suffering innocents - from all sides - Allied, Germans and Japanese, would have been in the tens of millions. Many times over the number of casualties which resulted from turning German and Japanese cities into rubble.

Now, let us take a look at the West's post-World War II era accomplishments:

(a) Korean War - Lost - costing untold human suffering, and more to come.
(b) Viet Nam War - Lost - costing untold human suffering.
(c) Africa "liberated" from the European colonizers - and continue to drown in their blood and untold human suffering.
(d) Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya worse than they ever were and a greater threat to world peace.
(e) Iran - a confirmed enemy of the U.S. after running us out of their country in shame - still "running circles" around the West..
(f) China essentially controlling the world economy.

Shame on all of those post-World War II half baked leaders who obviously were, and are, not even able punch their way out of a paper sack even if they were given instructions!

Are they that blind? Yes, they are. Blinded by satan as he is writing in blood and misery the closing chapters of the book which began to be written when the Roman Catholic Church Administrators summarily ignored every single request from Heaven of the last 200 years (5)..... with the sole exception, of course, of those requests which would fill their coffers even more!

In case that you are wondering  why we share the above with our readership now - the answer is quite simple although it is made of several components.

(a) Since you are occupying front row seats to the Apocalyptic Reality Show it will help you see that all that is happening is not the result of random events.
(b) You will be able to discern the future parts of the script as they fall into place.
(c) Any notion that the world will overcome this critical period through the traditional political an religious leadership reflects a severe case of denial which, in the long run, will be quite painful individually. Snap out of it! IT WILL NOT HAPPEN!

We pray that you heed the above warning and make it available to all those whom the Spirit of God moves you to.

Not thirty minutes had gone by after finishing the above text when, through a Portuguese publication  we became aware of....


What ISIS Really Wants
(1)

The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths.

It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse.

Just a brief quote from the section under the heading "Apocalypse":

After its battle in Dabiq, Cerantonio said, the caliphate will expand and sack Istanbul. Some believe it will then cover the entire Earth, but Cerantonio suggested its tide may never reach beyond the Bosporus. An anti-Messiah, known in Muslim apocalyptic literature as Dajjal, will come from the Khorasan region of eastern Iran and kill a vast number of the caliphate's fighters, until just 5,000 remain, cornered in Jerusalem.

Just as Dajjal prepares to finish them off, Jesus - the second-most-revered prophet in Islam - will return to Earth, spear Dajjal, and lead the Muslims to victory.

Yes! You read that right! That is our Jesus they are talking about, and Daijal, the anti-Messiah, is whom we call the Anti Christ.

On Fasting - Please remind everyone of a true benefit of Fasting - developing self control.  As you are aware, fasting was done in the Scriptures, even by Jesus. 

I think our Church Administration has regulated it to just Lent and this has diminished it's importance.  It is a great opportunity for spiritual growth.
 
I usually do it more than what is required, during Lent.  I need to do it more throughout the year.
 
Have a Blessed Lent.

LM

A.
Since your letter was a response to our mailing wherein we spoke about "fasting" and "faith" we must assume that you are referring to our statement:

As we enter today into the period of Lent, why, instead of a corporal sacrifice offered as penance for Lent, we offer every single day - for forty days - one decade of the Rosary, meditating on the Resurrection, while seeking that God grants us as much Faith as He has ordained for each one of us from all Eternity?

With that as a background.... You wish that we remind our readers that the "benefit of Fasting - developing self control". No, we will not do so because that is not true; that is not the benefit of fasting.

Professional athletes have developed tremendous self control. So do those "professional dieters" who seem to be always on one diet or another. Politicians - some, anyway, considering what Mr. Giuliani just said about President Obama - have developed self control so that they can be re elected. Their self control has not necessarily yielded greater faith.

Fasting is offered to God as a sacrifice to be used for many worthy intentions. For example, Mary has said: "You have forgotten that through prayer and fasting you can avert war and suspend the laws of nature". (1)

And Her Son said almost 2,000 years ago: This kind can go out by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. [Mark 9:28]

Not to mention what saved Niniveh the first time around - review Jonas 3: 4-5

Therefore, for an effective and a natural desire of fasting (for the right reasons), we must first have faith.

That is why we suggest that we must work on our level of faith, first and above all. Self control, many have, real faith, obviously only a few have.
 
miguel has been fasting (2) two days a week, year round, since 1988 and recommends it to everyone but for the right reasons.

Why so much fasting? Because miguel wants to gain more self control? Win the lottery? Of course not! It is because miguel knows that "...through prayer and fasting you can avert war and suspend the laws of nature" and wants to serve God as best as he can, considering his natural miseries and limitations.

miguel stopped smoking cold turkey almost 30 years ago. At that time he was smoking four packs of cigarettes a day! Why was it so easy? Self control? Of course not!  It was because it dawned on him that if he stopped smoking he could at least gain two more years of life in which he could serve God. That was an act of faith, NOT of self control.

However, if fasting becomes a habit, a routine, it loses some of its spiritual merits. Just in case, miguel actually considered giving up fasting for this year's Lent until God indicated to him otherwise.

Therefore, our recommendation to:

 "....instead of a corporal sacrifice offered as penance for Lent, we offer every single day - for forty days - one decade of the Rosary, meditating on the Resurrection, while seeking that God grants us as much Faith as He has ordained for each one of us from all Eternity."

.... stands on the rock of Faith!

For additional clarification on the mater of fasting, the first reading of the Mass for the first Friday after Ash Wednesday (3) could hardly be improved upon.

Thank you for the opportunity to make this matter crystal clear.

From (Mrs.) L. C. @ US

For the first time this Ash Wednesday, I became aware of the widespread practice of getting ashes just about anywhere, not only in churches. 

The web site www.ashestogo.org gives an idea of what this is all about.

Should you have the time and the inclination to comment on this practice, it would be much appreciated.

In Jesus' Holy Name,

LC

A.
This reminds us of a lady stopping miguel on the street and asking him why he was crossing himself since he was not inside a church. (1)

We do not have to be inside a church to receive a blessing nor to acknowledge our sins nor to seek Divine forgiveness.

We have visited the site that you mentioned and it seems that the practice is being conducted with the appropriate dignity and respect. Therefore, from what we have seen, it should become a standard practice for all Christian denominations.

Many people who would not go to the Ash Wednesday Mass for a variety of valid (or invalid) reasons can partake of a moment of repentance that they would not have otherwise. Most of the "kids" miguel dealt with during his Discotheque ministry days never or seldom had set a foot in a church so we came to them. Many went back to church and even more straightened out their lives considerably.

We can see that in the parable below:

Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage. And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests. [Matthew 22: 9-10]
 
No; this does not mean that the Sacrament of Reconciliation could be done via the internet, although making it available in adequate public places might not be a bad idea. The only requirement would be that the priests have to be certified for that particular ministry by their local ordinaries and carry proof of that so that the walk-by penitent knew that it was not an impostor..... which has happened more that one time in Fatima.

P.S. Maybe the faithful should start getting used to this idea because after the Chastisement few structures may be standing on a worldwide scale.

From (Mrs.) P. D. @ US

As I was going through the Book of Exodus and found that there is a mention of a "Three Days of Darkness".
 
I also found a statement regarding the mark on the hand.

Three Days of Darkness
 
[21] And the Lord said to Moses: Stretch out they hand towards heaven: and may there be darkness upon the land of Egypt, so thick that it may be felt. [22] And Moses stretch forth his hand towards heaven: and there came horrible darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days. [23] No man saw his brother, nor moved himself out of the place where he was: but wheresoever the children of Israel dwelt there was light.  [Exodus 10]

Mark/Sign on the hand

[8] And thou shalt tell thy son in that day, saying: This is what the Lord did to me when I came forth out of Egypt. [9] And it shall be as a sign in thy hand, and as a memorial before thy eyes: and that the law of the Lord be always in thy mouth, for with a strong hand the Lord hath brought thee out of the land of Egypt. [Exodus 13]

PD

A.
Thank you for sharing the above. Something that caught our eye while reading the above `passages was "but wheresoever the children of Israel dwelt there was light". That brought to mind the instructions that we should have a blessed candle available for when the Three Days of Darkness (1) take place.

January 28, 1950:  Jesus to Padre Pio

"Keep your windows well-covered.  Do not look out.  Light a blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the Rosary. Read spiritual books.  Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of love, which are so pleasing to Us.  Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the ground, in order that many souls may be saved.  Do not go outside the house.  Provide yourself with sufficient food.  The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear.  Have courage!  I am in the midst of you." (2)

Obviously it will be the children of the new Israel (the Elect at the End of These Times) who will be such prepared..... the others will be scrambling for the "oil for their lamps".

We have just heard that... Bergoglio, a.k.a. Pope Francis, went to Israel on 2014 as the "Che Guevara of Palestinians".

Reports from sources close to pope reveal his upcoming visit meant as PA propaganda, Elkin calls reports 'exaggerated.'

The revelation comes from Rabbi Sergio Bergman, a member of the Argentinean parliament and close friend of Pope Francis, who claimed the pope intends to define himself as the "Che Guevera of the Palestinians" and support their "struggle and rights."

miguel de Portugal comments: The source - a member of the Argentinean parliament and close friend of Pope Francis - seems to be a serious and reliable one and, besides, the story sounds like typical "Bergoglio talk".

For those of you who only know Guevara from the T-shirts made and sold for the "free spirits" and "rebels" among the newer generations..... Ernesto Che Guevara was so "toxic" that even Fidel Castro sent him packing out of Cuba and to his eventual death.

That anyone use his name as an adjective or qualifier is revolting but, then again, so is Bergoglio scandalous behavior.

Oh, yes.... in case that we have not mentioned it on this page, the new "liberator of the oppressed" in Greece, Prime Minister Alexis Tspiras, named his son "Ernesto" in honor of Ernesto Che Guevara.

(sarcasm on) Maybe he thought it was a designer's T-shirt brand. (sarcasm off)

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, as the saying goes, the party that has achieved the number one spot in Opus Dei's Spain - defeating the two traditional political parties in Spain -  is the one who was founded and led by Mr. Pablo Iglesias, or as we labeled him, "Fidel Castro : Part 2". God certainly has a sense of ironic humor.... if we translate Mr. Iglesias name to English it would be Paul Churches. "Paul" as of Paul of Tarsus and "Churches" as the churches he established in his many trips. In case that you may wondering..... Mr. Iglesias is not fond of any Church!

But why should we be surprised when the Public Relations man for the "Che Guevara of the Palestinians", Greg Burke, is a staunch Opus Dei man - cilice and all!

Between the low Evangelization level of Christians - specially Catholics - and the "Masquerade Ball" that satan is staging on a worldwide scale, it indeed will be a miracle that some do not fall in the snare being set up.

From (Mrs.) LC @ US

I thank you for responding to my email concerning ashes-to-go.  It is very much appreciated, as are your responses to the other two topics on fasting and  the Three Days of Darkness.

Pertaining to your comments about fasting, it's the first time I fully understand the true meaning/value of the need for fasting and how it should be approached.  The way you state it, it makes so much sense.

Per your recommendation on Ash Wednesday, and also indicated below in your response to LM, I have been praying that special decade.

LC

A.
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement.

Your letter with the sincere and from the heart statement "it's the first time I fully understand the true meaning/value of the need for fasting and how it should be approached" - is a perfect example of our concern about the level of Evangelization of most Catholics. If you and Mrs. LM, for example, both devout and level headed Catholics, were in the dark about the "true meaning/value of the need for fasting and how it should be approached", imagine where the casual Catholic level of Evangelization is at.

We rejoice at being able to clarify all those points - that is one of the main reasons we exist for - however, that joy is tarnished when we think of the 1600 years the Roman Catholic Church authorities have shamelessly wasted at the expense, spiritual and financial, of the poor faithful who have been made to believe the supreme lie (1) that there is no salvation outside of the Roman Catholic Church.

What next? The Beatification of Che Guevara?

As we have said before - if hell had a finite number of vacancies to fill, it would be full by now with Roman Catholic Church Administrators!

As always, your timely and to-the-point feedback is appreciated.

And, if all of those snares were not enough to wake one up, here is the ultimate identity theft scheme....

From miguel de Portugal


We have come across an identity theft case that makes Alfred Hitchcock movies look like child's play.

The following was related to us by the victim who we have known for over 40 years. At this point, she is still not fully aware of the overall plan. We are sharing it with our readers as a very serious warning because it seems that identity theft has taken a very, very nasty turn.

We are oversimplifying the sequence of events spanning probably 35 years..

(a) High School Boy and Girl sweethearts marry.
(b) Have successful - read $$$$ - career and businesses.
(c)  "Boy" gets a mistress.
(d) "Boy" and mistress steal "Girl's" identity.
(e) For three years they drain the businesses resources leaving "Girl" almost penniless.
(f) "Girl" now appears to be the one who stole the identity of the mistress - where in reality is completely the opposite. Of course "Boy" is an integral part of the scam.
(g) "Girl" has enough concrete evidence of what has taken place; now it is a matter of proving through the courts that she is indeed the original "Girl" and that it is the mistress who stole the identity.
(h) "Girl" family is not cooperating with her - which has been like that since she was a pre teen.

The check mate? ["Girl" is not aware of this.]

Considering inheritance issues as well as community property issues - "Boy" and mistress could eliminate "Girl" since her full identity and all financial benefits and matrimonial rights have been fully assumed by mistress and, technically, "Girl" no longer exists.

That is taking Identity Theft to the limit - a lethal limit. A complete replacement.

And to think that people thought that Sandra Bullock's movie "The Net" (1) was an impossible fantasy!

It turns out that "Boy" and mistress have greatly surpassed it!

Wake up, people, and start praying in earnest. The situation gets worse by the hour!

From (Mrs.) LM @ US

Thank you so much for your insight and clarification regarding the fasting issue.

I always thought of fasting as a way to hear God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus better as we travel on this journey. That is what I would discipline myself for, to hear God better.  But, to stop wars and suspend the laws of nature, which I understand and believe has happened, I have never had any priest or ordained person explain it to me that way.  I have never heard it in a homily, seminar, or class. No one has ever made that crystal clear to me.
 
We fasted because the church leaders said to do so and we abstained from meat on Friday's, every Friday of the year, until that was changed sometime in the 80's I think. We did it to identify with the sufferings of Christ.
 
So, what you are also saying to me is that, we have been kept in the dark about this for a reason. Or is it me, and I just missed that lesson in Catholic School?    I will reread what you have written until I truly can comprehend it.  Until it is crystal clear for me. My husband and I are praying a decade of the Rosary to increase our faith during lent as you suggested.
 
Have a Blessed Week

LM

A. Your kind letter illustrates perfectly what we meant in a recent response regarding the same issue:

We rejoice at being able to clarify all those points - that is one of the main reasons we exist for - however, that joy is tarnished when we think of the 1600 years the Roman Catholic Church authorities have shamelessly wasted at the expense, spiritual and financial, of the poor faithful who have been made to believe the supreme lie  that there is no salvation outside of the Roman Catholic Church..

As we do not tire of repeating, the Catholic Faith is the most complete faith on the face of the Earth; the one which will make our passage through Time as painless as possible if it is understood and practiced correctly, but as Jesus said when addressing the Temple Masters of that time:

But woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men, for you yourselves do not enter in; and those that are going in, you suffer not to enter. [Matthew 23:13]

and

Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves. [Matthew 23:15]

Those who were entrusted to share such tremendous treasure with the children of God became as adulterous as those Jesus addressed:

For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. [Mark 8:38]

Yes, the Christian version of the Temple Masters are indeed ashamed of Jesus, otherwise you - and most Christians - would not have experienced the "theological blackouts" like what you described in your letter:

"I have never had any priest or ordained person explain it to me that way.  I have never heard it in a homily, seminar, or class. No one has ever made that crystal clear to me."

Which brings us back again to what we stated in an earlier response:

I believe in God because I know God; I practice the Catholic Faith because I know it is the most complete Faith available to man, because, if not, with I have seen and experienced in the las 30 years  in organized religion, I would be an atheist.

Do not let that already mentioned adulterous and sinful generation of clerics (exceptions always noted) tarnish the Catholic Faith nor block you from practicing it to the fullest. If they want to stay in Purgatory until the End of Time or go to hell, that is their prerogative. Yours is to live the Faith which, of course, includes regularly praying for their conversion.

Now.... on defense of said "adulterous and sinful generation of clerics":

 If they had been prayed for - in sincerity - by the faithful, fewer would have gone astray.

But here is how we get in a Catch 22 situation.

They have pretended to be "high and mighty" and have lorded over the faithful while not teaching them what the faithful needed to know. It then logically follows that the faithful were not moved to pray for them since, the thought in the underEvangelized faithful's mind was: "such holy individuals do not need prayers from someone like me.".

You know now what the root problem is, therefore you should not be confounded by the Catch 22 situation.

Therefore, go and pray for them regularly - as long as you, and they, have breath, there is still time to minimize the suffering in the world while Divine Justice is dispensed and Prophecy fulfilled!


Did you know that..... Obama adviser John Podesta's biggest regret is keeping America in dark about UFOs

Outgoing senior Obama adviser John Podesta reflected on his latest White House stint Friday, listing his favorite moments and biggest regrets from the past year. Chief among them: depriving the American people of the truth about UFOs.

Podesta's longtime fascination with UFOs is well-documented, as his brief political hiatus following four years as President Bill Clinton's chief of staff freed him up to pursue his otherworldly passion.

At a 2002 press conference organized by the Coalition for Freedom of Information, Podesta spoke on the importance of disclosing government UFO investigations to the public.

"It's time to find out what the truth really is that's out there,"  he said. "We ought to do it, really, because it's right. We ought to do it, quite frankly, because the American people can handle the truth. And we ought to do it because it’s the law."

miguel de Portugal comments: Just what the world needed now - official admission that there is a UFO "truth" and that the government is illegally withholding it from the public.

Surely you have heard that... the new faculty handbooks in San Francisco are to include guidelines regarding behavior coherent with to Catholic teaching.

Faculty handbooks of the four high schools owned and operated by the San Francisco archdiocese will carry a new, free-standing section for the 2015-16 school year that puts teachers and faculty on notice about heightened demands regarding adherence to Catholic teaching, particularly on sexual issues, and warns against taking public positions that are contrary to church teaching.

The section:

Delineates areas of church teaching on "sexual morality and religious practice" it says needs more clarity and emphasis;

Underscores that "administrators, faculty and staff of any faith or no faith are expected to arrange and conduct their lives so as not to visibly contradict, undermine or deny" church doctrine and practice;

Calls on "administrators, faculty and staff who are Catholics" to "not only avoid public contradiction of their status as professional agents in the mission of Catholic education," but to also "conform their hearts, minds and consciences, as well as their public and private behavior, ever more closely to the truths taught by the Catholic Church";

Warns educators to "refrain from participation in organizations that call themselves 'Catholic' but support or advocate issues or causes contrary" to church teaching.

miguel de Portugal comments: And the problem is?

Our readers know well what our position (2) is regarding the Roman Catholic Church Administration, in general, however, in the name of coherence (3) we fully agree with the San Francisco Archbishop's position.

Coherence is most important in the formative years of our young ones and a school that carries the "Catholic" qualifiers must require the teachers to be coherent with what Catholicism teaches. The Archbishop is not banning from employment non Catholics; he is calling them to "avoid public contradiction of their status as professional agents in the mission of Catholic education."

Perhaps the uproar was caused when the handbook went on to state: "conform their hearts, minds and consciences, as well as their public and private behavior, ever more closely to the truths taught by the Catholic Church". That is a gentle call to conversion which is the responsibility of all of us, but does not seem to be a requirement for employment.

Of course, the battle cry used against the Archbishop's position is the scandal monger Bergoglio's infamous statement of: "Who am I to judge?"

Come to think about it, he certainly is not qualified to judge. To judge actions and behavior - which is all we can judge - we must believe in the Divine Law with which actions and behavior must be judged, and he certainly does not!

It is ironic that Francis of Assisi started his mission when he heard God say: Francis, Go Repair My House... Go, Rebuild My Church wheras it seems that what Bergoglio, a.k.a. Francis, is reponding to is satan's instruction to: Go and destroy what remains of the Church.

From miguel de Portugal

We recently gave an example of how far identity theft has gone using a sadly true case of the "Boy" - "Girl" - "mistress" triangle. In said writing we stated:

The check mate? ["Girl" is not aware of this.]

Considering inheritance issues as well as community property issues - "Boy" and mistress could eliminate "Girl" since her full identity and all financial benefits and matrimonial rights have been fully assumed by mistress and, technically, "Girl" no longer exists.

That is taking Identity Theft to the limit - a lethal limit. A complete replacement.

A logical question from a reader might be: Have you warned "Girl" what may be the "check mate" in this stolen identity lethal game?

The answer, should such thought was manifested in any our readers, is:

Even considering the fact that 50 % of "Girl"'s DNA is like m de P's DNA, we have not informed her of the possibility of how far the lethal replacement could go.

Then, the next question may be: But why?

The answer embodies the purpose why we have raised the theoretical question.

She is doing all that needs to be done to unmask and disassemble the charade for gaining back her identity and providing "Boy" and "mistress" with a paid respite at a Penitentiary.

Yes, her life may be in danger based on what God has revealed to me. However, if we were to tell her, the only thing she could do is to have a 24 hour body guard service. Since she could not possibly afford that, she would fall in a mental state that would interfere with her life, her alertness and the legal proceedings which she has already started. She could not accuse them of what God has revealed to me because, what proof can she show to the authorities?

Therefore, the only fool proof action that we can, and must, take is to appeal to God - that is why He revealed to me how far said identity theft could go.

First by praying for the conversion of "Boy" and "mistress" and then seeking Divine protection and inspiration for "Girl". That is exactly what we have done and continue to do.

To clarify a point, should it have come up in someone's mind.....

If we had concrete proof - copy of an incrimination e-mail or had overheard an incriminating conversation, the action sequence would have been different: (a) Same prayers; (b) Informed "Girl" immediately; and (c) Reported it to the competent authorities.

Moral of the story: Whatever God makes available to any of us - information, spiritual gifts or material riches -  is to be used in accordance to His Will and not in accordance to the world. When we use it in accordance to His Will:  .....to him (more) shall be given, and he shall abound:
[Matthew 13:12]

Brethren, as we do not tire of repeating: Either God "Is" or "Is Not"; Either "we believe" in His Word and Promises or "we do not believe".

I chose to "believe" because I know - and assure you - that God "Is"!
