Yesterday's First Reading was from Ezra 1:1-6
In the first year
of Cyrus, king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD
spoken by Jeremiah, the LORD inspired King Cyrus of Persia to issue
this proclamation throughout his kingdom, both by word of mouth and in
"Thus says Cyrus, king of Persia:
'All the kingdoms of the earth the
LORD, the God of heaven, has given to me, and he has also charged me to
build him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Therefore, whoever
among you belongs to any part of his people, let him go up, and may his
God be with him!
Let everyone who has survived, in whatever place he may have dwelt, be
assisted by the people of that place with silver, gold, goods, and
cattle, together with free-will offerings for the house of God in
That is what God can achieve if He has in His Hands the merits
associated with at least one sincere human prayer. Obviously some of
the Jews were
to God to move Cyrus in that manner and God used those merits to
the His Word through Jeremiah.
This is why we often encourage all to pray to God so that His Holy
Spirit moves the world leaders to act in a manner that the suffering
will be minimized as Divine Justice is dispensed and Prophecy
fulfilled. We sought that Divine favor at least five times a week,
we organized the latest Group Focused Prayer which, in essence, has
the same objective and now is offered every day and by a group of
We are sure that all of you remember the reading wherein Jesus spoke in
the following manner:
into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is
worthy, and there abide till you go thence. And when you come into the
house, salute it, saying: Peace be to this house. And if that house be
worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your
peace shall return to you. 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. 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
Three days ago we became aware of another indication/proof of the level
absolute moral decadence the world has fallen to - so bad that I could
not bring myself to report it to our readers. Somehow it brought to my
consciousness the above reading and gave it an even deeper meaning.
Sodom and Gomorrha existed and were destroyed at the time of Abraham,
even before God had given Moses the Ten Commandments. Those Ten
Commandments and all Divine Messages from God, through His Prophets,
were confirmed by God Himself, in the Person of Jesus.
not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am
not come to destroy, but to fulfill. [Matthew 5:17]
Now, let us take a look at that reading from Ezra again. The "city or
town" Jesus refers to then is the world of today since the Word of God
has been proclaimed throughout the world. Even with the failed
Evangelization, there have been exceptions - the reality of which we
have always acknowledged - so the correct Word of God has technically
been proclaimed throughout the world.
Most of the Western World claims to be Christian - a shameful lie
proven by the state of the Western World and the parts of the world
under its control.
Now, lets go back again to His Holy Words:
everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been
entrusted with much, much more will be asked. [Luke
Can you now see why it shall be more
tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment,
than for that city
? All we have to understand is that what it is
applicable to "that city" is now applicable to "the world".
It is why what is upon humanity will make what Noah's Flood
represent look like "a day at the beach".
No; the above is not being written to scare the people of God. It is
being written because I am tired
of hearing most everyone - now and throughout history
blaming God for all human miseries. Instead, we should be on our knees,
most of the time, thanking Him for sparing the handful of humanity that
He Will now, when
what humanity truly deserves is to be completely eradicated from the
The question that every reader should now have an answer to is: Is miguel de
Portugal being too pessimistic?
That is why miguel de
Portugal continues to echo the words of Paul as if his own:
declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of any.....
For I have not hesitated to proclaim.... the whole will of God. [Acts
