know that... when the burden of the
manifesting realities begins to weigh you down, the best thing to do,
next to prayer, is to review the Biblical
Prophecies and Promises Regarding the Return of Christ. (1)
We know that those are truths, and
they are indeed His promises. Do not let the evil one get you down -
arm yourself with unshakable Faith and march on triumphantly in
His Most Holy Name!
On April 2009 we received a
letter from a long time reader and Family
member. It is the Will of God that we publish this again. It
follows [edited for publication]:
I trusted in God when I feared the loss of my
job. You commended me. My job is gone.

and there is no hope, at least not for me.
His letter made miguel de Portugal (m de
P) realize that perhaps far too many of our readers
thought that we spoke about Faith without having taken it to great
limits. Therefore, focusing on his particular concerns (2), we shared with him a
small part of the experiences m de P had to live through as part of his
"on the job training". m de P's response to this, our brother,
was thus [edited for publication]:

found myself with only fifty dollars on hand, paying credit cards with credit cards and no employment of any kind (not even
as a store clerk - I was far grossly overqualified), but I knew that
was testing me and I trusted Him.
A very close and trusted business
associate betrayed me and defaulted on a very large debt (3) - and my "church going friends" of
the past, as it is usually the case, turned their backs on me. They
would not even purchase an

Did you know that....
The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights is going on the
attack against "those who are distorting the truth about priestly
sexual abuse."? (1)
The group bought an
expensive full-page ad in The New York Times Monday that places the
blames for the church's scandals on "homosexuality, not pedophilia."
And perhaps most shockingly, it also claimed that some
children were active participants in the abuse.
"The refrain that child rape is a reality in the Church is
twice wrong: let's get it straight -- they weren't children and they
weren't raped," self-appointed Catholic League president Bill Donohue
wrote in the ad.
on April 13th, 2011
When we thought that we could not have a
lower opinion of Mr. Donohue, he has proved us wrong. What next?
Clergy and hierarchy dragging those who have been abused to court for
causing them mental anguish and interfering with their pastoral duties?
Frankly we just would not be surprised.

I see all these things happening and agree the time of Jesus return is

My sons see this as well, and their faith is wavering because they
cannot understand why God allows this.
How can I foster in them HOPE along with what is happening to try to
bring them back to the Truth???
Thank you much! God Bless you always!
A. First of all, they must be reminded that God placed
man in charge of Creation [Genesis 1 and 2] and gave him an inviolable
Since the purpose of man in Time, after the fall, became an opportunity
to return to
Paradise, all God can do to help man without violating his free will is
to assist man through His Divine Providence (2) as we explained in a
recent document. (3)
Contrary to what man has been brainwashed to believe - God does not punish.
Our transgressions of established Divine Laws bring upon ourselves
detrimental consequences. Remember our example about falling to one's
death from a ten story rooftop. The law of gravity did not punish the
victim; the victim just violated an established physical law - The Law
of Gravity - with the
logical and deadly consequences.
What God does is, through His Divine Mercy, cushion the blows upon a
human being (and humanity) which result from the transgression of
inviolable Divine Laws established at the time of Creation.
If God steps in and stops all (thus violating our free will), we will
lose our only opportunity to
earn our way back to Paradise.
If God ignores all, we will completely destroy humanity without
resulting in Eternal death.
So, what is God to do? He resorts with the proven technique: Pain is the megaphone that God uses to get
the attention of His children so that they can correct their wayward
In the most blunt way that we can explain this: Knowing
what God has revealed to miguel de Portugal, if He asked: "Should I
turn off the volume of the megaphone and stand back and let mankind
work out their problems?" the answer would be a resolute "No!".
The only hope for a positive future that your sons have is that God "...resorts to the proven technique:
Pain is the
megaphone that God uses to get the attention of His children so that
they can correct their wayward ways."
The other option would be Eternal death. Let us not forget that:

false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to

Have you heard
Madonna (no, not the Mother of Jesus!) is exploring the Opus Dei cult? (1)
For the past 15 years, she
has been Kabbalahâ€™s (2)
most high profile and dedicated follower.
Madonna has apparently
ditched the controversial faith and taken up with Opus Dei â€“
secretive Catholic sect made famous in The Da Vinci Code.
The singer is said to be intrigued by the organisation and
spent Friday with priests from the centre's London HQ.
The move follows her alleged falling out with some Kabbalah
leaders after reports that cash raised for her Malawi charity was
squandered. Last night a source claimed: "She has invested so much into
Kabbalah so she was devastated by these damning accusations."
"She has started exploring different religions. Madonna has

All we can say is that God has made it patently clear that, henceforth,
that is the way it will be.
Actually, we should have done it from March 25th onward, but
neglected to follow His prompting (which m de P had misunderstood as
coming from self).
We could speculate as to "Why?" but it would be just that -
speculation which is of no value in this case.

I have been invited by some neighbors (very charitable people; they
help me with transportation for day-to-day errands) to attend a week
night service at their Protestant church, where communion will be
As far as I know, Catholics are not supposed to receive communion at
Protestant churches. Since joining the Catholic Church in 1995, I have
always stayed back when such a rite is offered at a Protestant service.
And yet ... it would seem to be a neighborly thing to receive at their
church, and to acknowledge shared faith in Christ. (I know that this is
not the same as a Divine Liturgy, in which the elements become the Body
and Blood of Christ; it would be symbolic.)
So ... should I (politely) refrain, or should I receive?
On a separate matter, I understand that Catholic regulations allow us
to receive at Orthodox services - but that we are urged to respect the
Orthodox discipline (which allows only Orthodox to receive). I have
obeyed the rules when attending Orthodox services, and do not receive
It is a shame that these divisions exist, and that I even have to
wonder about questions like this ... especially in times such as we are
To the first question Jesus has answered that
 Whosoever shall receive one such child as
in my name, receiveth me. And whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not
me, but him that sent me.  John answered him, saying: Master, we
saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us, and we
forbade him.  But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no
man that doth a miracle in my name, and can soon speak ill of me. 
For he that is not against you, is for you.  For whosoever shall
give you to drink a cup of water in my name, because you belong to
Christ: amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. [Mark
Of course, as you know, you partake of the communion in this case as a
symbolic/memory of the Last Supper and not as the communion with the
real Body and Blood.
Seeing it in another way - in the Orthodox Liturgy, those who cannot
receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for whatever reason, are
given Blessed Bread - bread which was blessed during the liturgy before
the consecration and set aside for this purpose.
Regarding the separate matter....
We do not recognize the separation and it would be fine if the Orthodox
Priest knew that you were not a member of an Orthodox Patriarchate and
allowed it. Otherwise, you would be presenting yourself before a priest
(or for that matter, before anyone!) in the state of a lie to consume
the Body of Christ. That does not work.

More than 100 animal studies have linked fluoride to

high levels of fluoride in drinking water and reduced intelligence....
Also observed was an inverse
between urine fluoride levels and IQ: a 0.59-point decrease in IQ was
observed for each 1 mg/L increase in urine fluoride. Thus, low
levels of fluoride in drinking water, even within the range of levels
currently allowed, negatively impact children's intelligence and dental
Chronic exposure to elevated levels of fluoride results in decreased
memory and learning ability, but the mechanisms underlying these
effects are not known. To address this issue, Liu et al. (2010) exposed
rats to varying concentrations of fluoride in drinking water for 6
months. As expected, spatial learning and memory of the rats
were significantly reduced in both the low- (5 mg/L) and high (50 mg/L)
fluoride groups when compared to the control group (<0.5
mg/L), as determined by increased times of Morris Water Maze tests.

people were at increased risk of e-mail swindles after a giant security
breach at an online marketing firm? (1)
The breach exposed the e-mail addresses
of customers of some of the
nation's largest companies, including JPMorgan Chase, Citibank,
and Walgreens. In some cases customer names were also stolen.
While the number of people affected is unknown, security experts say
that based on the businesses involved, the breach may be among the
largest ever. And it could lead to a surge in phishing attacks -
e-mails that purport to be from a legitimate business but are intended
to steal information like account numbers or passwords.

The marketing firm that suffered the breach, Epsilon, which handles

the weekend and on Monday, as banks, retailers and others began
alerting their customers to be on the lookout for fraudulent e-mails.

When is an Asteroid
On March 29, 1807, German
astronomer Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers spotted Vesta as a pinprick of light
in the sky. Two hundred and four years later, as NASA's Dawn spacecraft
prepares to begin orbiting this intriguing world, scientists now know
how special this world is, even if there has been some debate on how to
Vesta is most commonly called an asteroid because it lies
in the orbiting rubble patch known as the main asteroid belt between
Mars and Jupiter. But the vast majority of objects in the main belt are
lightweights, 100-kilometers-wide (about 60-miles wide) or smaller,
compared with Vesta, which is about 530 kilometers (330 miles) across
on average. In fact, numerous bits of Vesta ejected by collisions with
other objects have been identified in the main belt.
Officially, Vesta is a "minor planet" -- a body that orbits the sun but
is not a proper planet or comet. But there are more than 540,000 minor
planets in our solar system, so the label doesn't give Vesta much
distinction. Dwarf planets
include Dawn's second
Ceres -- are another category, but Vesta doesn't qualify as one of
those. For one thing, Vesta isn't quite large enough.
Dawn scientists prefer to think of Vesta as a protoplanet because it is
a dense, layered body that orbits the sun and began in the same fashion
as Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, but somehow never fully developed.
In the swinging early history of the solar system, objects became
planets by merging with other Vesta-sized objects. But Vesta never
found a partner during the big dance, and the critical time passed. It
may have had to do with the nearby presence of Jupiter, the
neighborhood's gravitational superpower, disturbing the orbits of
objects and hogging the dance partners.
The M+G+R Foundation comments:
There are enough "surprises" out there that could easily drive a fellow
to.... prayer, of course!
On yesterday's Gospel reading (1) we
hear..... among other things:
22 Moreover, the Father judges no
one, but has entrusted all
judgment to the Son, 23 that all may honor the Son just as they
honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor
the Father, who sent him.
24 Very truly I
you, whoever hears my word
and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged
but has crossed over from death to life.... 27 And he has given
him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.
28 Do not be
this, for a time is coming
when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and come out -
those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have
done what is evil will rise to be condemned. 30 By myself I can do
nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek
not to please myself but him who sent me. [NIV John 5]
There are three key points
that we would like to highlight:
(a) To "honor the Son" means, without a shred of a doubt, sincerely
trying to emulate Him and obey His commands. Of course wearing a simple
crucifix for all to realize Who is your Lord and Master, honors Him;
just as actively participating in a procession in memory of His
Passion does; etc. but all of that is always secondary when
compared with: emulating
Him and obeying His commands.
No, we did not "invent" this. He said Go then and learn what this meaneth, I
will have mercy and not sacrifice. For I am not come to call the just,
but sinners. [Matthew
That is, a "sacrifice" without "mercy" is of no value. Charity is the
greatest of virtues and cannot be replaced with a mechanical "ritual
sacrifice" to fulfill some institutional requirement.
(b) We have mentioned before that Eternal Life starts right here in
Time the moment that a soul experiences a true conversion. The
following reading says it best - "whoever
hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will
not be judged but has crossed over from death to life...."
(c) The statement "for a time
is coming" should have never been taken as an immediate event; a
future event, yes; "tomorrow", no. However, when you consider that
Jesus said that about 2,000 years ago - that is, ca. 9,500 years after
what we call Noah's Flood - 2,000 years after He said
it may be considered soon.
We are again reminded that the Holy Scriptures truly constitute a never
ending fountain of Living Waters.

finally prepared a document which has been in the proverbial inkwell
for too long.
The purpose of this brief document (1) is to
explain why, to many students of Pre-Historic, Ancient, Antique, Modern
and Contemporary faiths, it appears
that the Catholic Faith is just a conglomerate of old myths and
beliefs cobbled together by Rome. That is - "A made up religion".
As we have shown before, appearances can be
very deceiving. It is not that the
professionals are manufacturing the data that they use to prove their
(incorrect) point. It is a case of misinterpretation of the data

for the clergy, losing faith is not
occupational hazard, but often is a huge and burdensome secret? (1)
In a study reported in the Journal
of Evolutionary Psychology, a common denominator among pastors
to have lost their faith is exposure to historical-critical study of
the Bible while in seminary.
This very sad situation results from:
(a) Having "book learned" faith, a
deficiency we warn frequently about.
(b) Not having understood the Holy Scriptures
Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as we explained
Biblical Literalism - Part I and Part
(c) Not having been exposed to the Real
Creation Time Line (3).
(d) Not knowing what we have revealed, through the Grace of God, in the
document announced in the entry above: The Catholic Faith is not a
made-up religion (4).
What should the faithful do? First and above all - Pray so that the
Holy Spirit of God illuminate the souls of the clergy, and grant them
the gift of Faith. It must be a calvary to preach a faith that one does
not believe in.
Second - Make the above-cited information available to as many
individuals as possible, and pray that it reaches those who need it the
most: the clergy who have lost (or never had) faith.

He states: (1)

and gurus who have given up all the duties and responsibilities of
life. They have closed their minds to the realities of life, and every
day and night search for God, wanting to know Him, to find out where He
lives, somewhere in Heaven. Outwardly, they appear sane and peaceful.
Inwardly they are in chaos, crying inside in their desperate search for
Politicians are baffled because they cannot control the people with
ideologies. But it is the religious authorities who cling most to
power, believing "there is only one way to go to heaven.'' Yet how do
these religious leaders live? What is their lifestyle? Perhaps that of
kings: palaces, jets, bullet-proof cars. Krishna lived in a hut. This
is true divinity.
Of course we agree with his criticism of
hierarchs. The problem is that he is speaking as if he were Jesus
Christ, which, of course, he is not.
Allow us to introduce you to.....
the official Anti Christ "wannabe" .
JosÃ© Luis de JesÃºs Miranda
(1946 - ) is the
Puerto Rican founder and leader of a Miami-based movement, Creciendo en
Gracia, Growing In Grace International Ministry, Inc.(1) He claims to be "the Man
Christ Jesus," and has followers in 35 countries (mostly in Puerto Rico
and other parts of Latin America). Miranda, who moved through ministry
posts among Pentecostals and Southern Baptists before starting his own
church, has 287 radio programs and a 24-hour Spanish-language TV
network. Starting in 2007, Miranda also has claimed to be the
Antichrist. He Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and his followers
Ã¢â‚¬â€œ wear "666"
tattoos, and Miranda
says that "people are no longer to follow the Jewish
Jesus of Nazareth, but rather to follow the Apostle Paul's teachings"
given through Miranda; "Antichrist" means "no longer following Jesus
of Nazareth as he lived in the days of his flesh." Miranda
denounces the Papacy and the abuses within the Catholic Church, and
predicts that the Vatican and the Papacy will soon be destroyed.
As of 2006, Miranda's church claimed 300 congregations, more than
100,000 members, and a cable audience of 2 million. According to the
Miami New Times, "More than 400 followers have set up
funnel 20 to 80 percent of their profits into the ministry. Others
donate cars, homes, and tens of thousands of dollars in cash and
services. De Jesus bears little resemblance to the
biblical Lamb of
God. He wears fine suits and diamond-encrusted rings, drives a 7 Series
BMW, and, until recently, lived in a 5000-square-foot Miramar home with
Corinthian columns and vaulted ceilings. He also travels with a
battalion of guards who wear dark suits and conspicuous earpieces. De
Jesus says the cost of his security detail, which runs upward of
$300,000 per year, is covered by follower Lazaro Seijo."
Miranda says of himself, "The Man Christ Jesus is Antichrist
teaches the church to leave behind the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.
Any creed that holds the doctrine of Jesus of Nazareth
foundation is in apostasy, under curse and in slavery; one which binds
the church to an old covenant that no longer applies.
The 666 is a
number of man, it is the number which identifies Jesus Christ in his
second coming. In the 666 there is wisdom, it is a
He teaches that Ã¢â‚¬Å“there is no sin,"
but he says he is the Christ
calls down fire and brimstone on those who reject him: The
manifestation of God on Earth, the Man Christ Jesus, who is manifested
in the only Apostle of Grace, DR. JOSE LUIS DE JESUS, publicly declares
that all churches that base their doctrines on the apostles of the
circumcision (the law) and the rudimentary doctrine of Jesus of
Nazareth are APOSTATES and find themselves in spiritual ADULTERY. You
can't play around with God. This is The Government of God on
Earth. This is dangerous; it's not a game. The
Man Christ Jesus
declares that Growing in Grace is NOT just another ministry, but rather
with His coming, it represents the great and feared day of the
Lord."resents the great and feared day of the Lord."
Foundation comments: Considering what we read in the
paragraph above which states: "As of 2006, Miranda's church claimed 300
more than 100,000 members, and a cable audience of 2 million. According
to the Miami New Times, "More than 400 followers have set up businesses
that funnel 20 to 80 percent of their profits into the ministry. Others
donate cars, homes, and tens of thousands of dollars in cash and
services." miguel de Portugal must be on the absolutely right
track, since if it weren't for the sacrifice of less than a handful of
supporters, it would be back to a diet of (mercury and lead tainted)

(Mr.) WS @ US
As Sherlock Holmes would say - most
things are simple in hindsight or after careful examination and
"Whose side are you on?" is a phrase that we have all heard. "Are
you a Conservative or a Liberal?" they ask. I would rather say
"I'm on God's side."
There seem to be two conspiracies; the one on the left is fairly open
and the one on the right is very secretive. It sort of gets down
to "Am I gonna sear on the spit right in the fire or slowly boil in the
pot as the temperature is turned up." Those choices
presented seem to widen the chasm bringing humankind down to the abyss.
My faith and trust are rooted in God not allowing annihilation but
allowing events to escalate until the "proper" moment. Wisdom and Grace
require humility and patience and yes child-like reliance on Our Father
to provide sustenance.
Today's (March 31st) reading for Lent is the parable of the persistent
widow, Luke 18:1-8. As I understand it, a persevering pray-er gets
God's attention despite obstacles, discouragement and opposition.
God's purpose in this is to answer the pleas of his chosen and see that
justice is done. There is one big caveat; "But when the Son of Man
comes, will he find faith on earth?" [Luke 18:8]
Let us all be persistent, enduring to the end even if our faith is the
size of a mustard seed [Matthew
It is precisely because the faith is almost extinguished
that the responsibility of praying and making reparation (so that the
blows which are already raining upon humanity are softened) falls on
few who have any Faith left. Let us not forget who delivered
Constantinople from destruction in the year 911 and why. (1)
Indeed God will not allow complete annihilation, but
rest assured that it will be worse than the aftermath of what we know

FEMA has scheduled a massive national
exercise in the New Madrid Fault for May 2011?
"The Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) has an initiative underway with the eight states of the
New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) in the central United States to develop
catastrophic earthquake disaster response plans.
The NMSZ states include Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky,
Missouri, Mississippi and Tennessee. The initiative, known as the
NMSZ Catastrophic Earthquake Disaster Response Planning Initiative,
involves partnerships and collaboration with hundreds of government
agencies; business, industry and voluntary organizations; and
scientific and academic institutions. It is part of FEMA's Catastrophic
Disaster Planning Initiative to conduct analyses and develop plans for
mass evacuation, sheltering and response to catastrophic disasters,
such as earthquakes and hurricanes". (1)
Are we ready to face a Japan style earthquake? Do we really know how
possible a reality it is?
It may be a good idea to just check into it (2)
while praying, of
course, that this new FEMA exercise does not coincide with a real
earthquake (as the one in Haiti coincided with a training exercise in
the continental US, but very close to Haiti).
Let us not forget our post of February 11, 2010, in our FYI&R page.

....it seems that the leaders and most
members from the various sects/cults within the Roman Catholic Church
have overlooked today's Mass Gospel reading, which, of course, is read
every year during the lenten season:
to some who trusted in
themselves as just, and despised others, he spoke also this
parable: Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee,
and the other a publican.
The Pharisee standing, prayed thus
with himself: O God, I give thee thanks that I am not as the rest of
men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican. I fast
twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican,
standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards
heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a
sinner. I say to you, this man went down into his house justified
rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself,
shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. [Luke
Just a reminder about the enormous
disconnect between most of the "pious ones" and the Word of God - which
rules supreme over anything
man can be, say or do. Any man!

I bid you to take the following message very seriously,
since it will be very beneficial for your soul
now and after
soul crosses the veil.
The Lord has given
to every man his work. It is his business
to do it, and the devil's business to hinder him if he can. So sure as
God has given you a work to do, satan will try to hinder you.
He may present other
things more promising. He may allure you by worldly
prospects, he may assault you with slander, torment you with false
set you to work defending your character, employ pious persons to lie
you, editors to assail you, and excellent men to slander you.
You may have Pilate
and Herod, Ananias and Caiaphas all combined against
you, and Judas standing by you ready to sell you for thirty pieces of
and you may wonder why all those things come upon you.
Can you not see that
the whole thing is brought about through the craft
of the devil? To draw you off from your work and hinder your obedience
Keep about your work.
Do not flinch because the lion roars; do not stop
to stone the devil's dogs; do not fool away your time chasing the
rabbits. Do your work!
Let liars lie, let
sectarians quarrel, let corporations resolve, let
editors publish, let the devil do his worst; but see to it that nothing
hinders you from fulfilling the work God has given you.
He has not sent you
to make money. He has not commanded you to get rich.
He has never bidden you to defend your character. He has not set you at
work to contradict falsehood which satan and his servants may start to
peddle. If you do these things, you will do nothing else; you will be
work for yourself and not for the Lord.
Keep about your work.
Let your aim be as steady as a star. Let the world
brawl and bubble. You may be assaulted, wronged, insulted, slandered,
and rejected; you may be abused by foes, forsaken by friends and
and rejected of men, but see
to it, with steadfast determination, with
unfaltering zeal, that you pursue the great purpose of your life and
of your being, until at last you can say: "I have finished the
Thou gavest me to do".
Should you be called to
cross the veil today, are you really
in a position to be able to say: "I have finished the work which
Thou gavest me to do"?
