Points to Ponder About (1)


PURPOSE: The purpose of Points to Ponder About is to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented Faithful back to God (1) and away from the hypocritical duplicity  of some religious institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth (2) (3).   [PURPOSE continued at end of page]

Published on December 31st, 2007 [
Silvester I, Pope [1st Pope after the deliverance of Catholic Church to Emperor Constantine]]

(a) Do you ever wonder why God continues to allow the misery man brings upon man - apparently without care?

also

(b) Do you ever wonder what will take for Him to stop it?

Such truly momentous questions have quite simple and coherent answers - as all that is of God.

First we will deal with (a).

We read in Genesis 1:26 :
And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth.

Now, God has placed the creation under the management of man.

God also made clear that man had a free will - after all, man was created in His Image. This attribute was demonstrated when God forbade man to eat the fruit of certain trees. If man would not have had a free will, all God had to do is block man from eating from certain trees and not allowing him the freedom of obeying Him or not.

Since then, as we read throughout the entire Old Testament, God has tried to guide mankind to the right path; the right way. Through prophets He communicated the "Why?" of the catastrophes which fell upon mankind as well as the "Why?" of the Blessings He bestowed upon mankind from time to time. All, to no avail.

Since mankind was getting worse - and not better - He sent His Son - Jesus Christ.  The Word of God made Flesh; that is, the Living Way.  To try to get across mankind - face to face - what He tried before through the Prophets: How to live with justice, thus harmony and peace.

The Word made Flesh was killed; a group sprung from said Word with the intent of, by example and word, taking up where the Master left off and continue to demonstrate the true Way - the Way of God.

Man, exercising His free and inviolable Will, continued to pillage and plunder Creation - Earth, animals and humans. This time, using the Holy Name of Jesus and that of the Prophet Mohammed, as a justification. The offenses to God were then multiplied.

In a last ditch effort - and we are speaking literally - God starts sending Mary
(1) to remind one and all to get back to the pre Constantine Gospel (2) . As we recently wrote (3) - through Fatima She warned:

"Humanity has sinned and trampled upon the Grace granted upon it. Order reigns nowhere.  satan has reached the highest positions and determines how things are to evolve. He will succeed in introducing himself in the highest echelons of the Church. He will succeed in seducing the spirit of the great wise men who will invent weapons with which half of humanity can be destroyed in just a few minutes.  He will have powerful nations within his empire and will move them to mass produce those weapons.

If humanity does not take the steps necessary to stop it, I will be forced to let go of My Son's Arm.  Then, God will punish mankind in a much more severe manner than  He did with the Great Flood.  The great and powerful will succumb just as the weak and small.

This brings us to the answer to question (b)....

Now that we have "...invented weapons with which half of humanity can be destroyed in just a few minutes..." we are capable of annihilating not only half of humanity but all of humanity plus render the planet uninhabitable.

This is where God "drew the line". The only way He has left to deal with humanity - without violating our free will - is to allow so much destruction and pain
(4) upon it that, at least a small group will be left. This group (5) will now "toe God's line" - so much was the suffering they had to endure.

Welcome to the first part of the Apocalypse!
(6) or The Good News - Part II

The New Year celebration's "real fireworks" are just around the corner.

Do you ever wonder.... why the Acts of the Apostle are not considered of the "same weight" as the Four Gospels? After all, it was also written by Luke.

Also.... why are the three Letters of John the Evangelist not considered of the "same weight" as the Four Gospels?

Furthermore, do you wonder how can those Christians who undervalue Mary's importance and role in the Salvation of Mankind
(1) - to the point that, at times, offend Her - "hang on" to the Gospel according to Luke "for dear life" when the first two Chapters of his Gospel - key to the knowledge of Jesus before His Public Ministry - had to be straight out of Mary's mouth?

But then again.... man is liable to believe anything is convenient for him to believe.  Peter himself was not infallible 
[Gal. 2:11-14] yet his successors claim, since the middle of the 19th Century, to be infallible. (2)

Do you wonder.... why the Birth of Christ is celebrated on December 25th?

Wonder no more!

Do you wonder.... where the world economy is going and why? The following letter from a member of The M+G+R Foundation Family explains it well:

Dear Miguel,
 
As you have stated, "In the absence of Divine Graces, man responds according to his fallen nature."
 
Not only are the Scriptures actually or symbolically true, the lessons they teach are repeated over and over again so that at least a few will "get it" as the attached article (1) amply illustrates.
 
For the rest, they go into the fire as the chaff from the wheat. It is hard to be sympathetic to those who refuse to listen after being told repeatedly. Even Jesus has limits to the dispensing of His Mercy since  He cannot and will not force any of us to seek His Forgiveness.
 
We can only pray for the Light and the Graces to do the right thing.
 
It is time to stop focusing on this world and think about the next.
 
Best wishes and Peace

Blindly Into the Bubble

When announcing Japan’s surrender in 1945, Emperor Hirohito famously explained his decision as follows: “The war situation has developed not necessarily to Japan’s advantage.”

There was a definite Hirohito feel to the explanation Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman, gave this week for the Fed’s locking-the-barn-door-after-the-horse-is-gone decision to modestly strengthen regulation of the mortgage industry: “Market discipline has in some cases broken down, and the incentives to follow prudent lending procedures have, at times, eroded.”

That’s quite an understatement. In fact, the explosion of “innovative” home lending that took place in the middle years of this decade was an unmitigated disaster.

But maybe Mr. Bernanke was afraid to be blunt about just how badly things went wrong. After all, straight talk would have amounted to a direct rebuke of his predecessor, Alan Greenspan, who ignored pleas to lock the barn door while the horse was still inside — that is, to regulate lending while it was booming, rather than after it had already collapsed.

Do you wonder.... why violence amongst our young ones is increasing by leaps and bounds?

Wonder no more!  If ten minutes of advertising on a thirty minute program slot can mold the mind of the viewers so that it is profitable for the advertiser, imagine what the remaining twenty minutes of sex and wanton violence will do to the minds of our children!

Simple, isn't it?

Who have not heard of the havoc caused by the now famous "El Niño"? How many know where such alteration of the climate got its name? Few.
Therefore.... do you ever wonder what "El Niño" really means?

Another Warning Channel used by God....

El Niño - from El Niño de la Navidad, literally, "the Christmas child" due to the warming of Pacific waters seemed to warm around Christmas
We presume that no further explanation is necessary to understand "the message".


Published on December 10th, 2007 [Feast of Our Lady of Loretto]

In view of those never ending arguments about at what time in the period of gestation is abortion not the murder of a human being - from the "morning after pill" to the macabre "partial birth abortion....?

Have you ever wonder.... what the Bible says about the beginning of life? Believe it or not it is clear as the finest crystal.

We read in Luke 1 :

24 And after those days, Elizabeth his wife conceived, and hid herself five months, saying: 25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he hath had regard to take away my reproach among men. 26 And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

and

35 And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. 36 And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren: 37 Because no word shall be impossible with God.

then....


39 And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda.

This is the most logical for Mary to have done - basically racing to see Elizabeth. The city of Juda was just about 80 miles from Nazareth. Once Mary confirmed Elizabeth's pregnancy She would know that it was not Her imagination.... that indeed Gabriel had appeared and announce to Her the most incredible thing: She was to mother the Son of God!

but let us continue....

40 And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth. .... 43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

Now we learn that....

56 And Mary abode with her about three months; and she returned to her own house. 57 Now Elizabeth's full time of being delivered was come, and she brought forth a son.

Going by the time span given - it is obvious that Mary left Nazareth right away because She stayed with Elizabeth "about three months" and  Elizabeth was six months pregnant when Gabriel gave Mary the Good News.

Now - the moment Mary arrived, Elizabeth felt the presence of our Savior.  She did not feel the presence of a fetus that one day would come to life and be our Savior - Elizabeth felt the presence of Jesus just as if He had been 5, 20 or 30 years old.

Therefore - the New Testament confirms that very, very close to the moment of conception a human life - even if it is only composed of a handful of cells - exists - thus extinguishing said life would be the violation of the "Thou shalt not kill" Commandment.

Now - miguel knows that at the moment of conception full human life is manifested to the extent that, from that point on, the future newborn has a Guardian Angel who accompanies that mother until delivery time, but.... Who knows miguel's face?

Well, now we have it - it practically  says the same thing (give or take the travel time to Elizabeth's house) in the New Testament.  We rejoice in the Divine Coherence and the consolation God provides by confirming that "known" information.


You are invited to be an instrument in keeping this Ministry active. It is now in your hands to do so!

Have you ever thought.... why God has allowed (not caused, but allowed) the AIDS (1) plague as well as, what appears to be the other End of Times plague, Alzheimer disease?

Could it be that, since we approach the End of These Times and the faithful drifts further away from God, many, who otherwise be lost, due to their condition, fulfill a key salvation requirement set forth by Jesus Himself, and we quote:
Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. [Matthew 18:3]

Have you noticed how many of our brethren with AIDS look as their end-time approaches?  Have you noticed how those suffering from
Alzheimer look? Do not they remind you of little and dependent children? A mere coincidence?

Let us not forget - God utilizes, for the good of His children, even the worse human tragedies.

Jesus.... Do not leave the world without Him!

Do you wonder.... why the moral authority of the Roman Catholic Church is at an all time low and continues to plunge dragging with it the immaculate Catholic Faith (1)?  The following letter received today from someone who knows the subject well, will serve as just one example.  In the spiritual domain "filth" is felt so that people do not need to know these details to be repelled by those involved in it.

The letter....

Christ be with you!
 
The article (2) is titled "Beautiful Calling".... no comment!
 
"Saying that he has "always loved" the ritual-filled ceremony of a church dedication, the cardinal drew a parallel with the effect that their investiture into the order should bring to the 100 new Knights and Dames of Malta. "When something new and beautiful is happening in our lives," the cardinal said, "we dare not let that moment pass without rededication."

Cardinal Egan, the principal celebrant, is principal chaplain of the American Association of the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, as the order is formally known.

He was joined on the altar by five prelates: Archbishop Celestino Migliore, Vatican nuncio to the United Nations; Archbishop Harry J. Flynn of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.; Bishop William E. Lori of Bridgeport, Conn.; Bishop Michael R. Cote of Norwich, Conn.; and retired Bishop Frank J. Rodimer of Paterson, N.J.; as well as other priests and deacons......."

We all know about Egan (3)......... Lori is his successor in his former diocese of Bridgeport, CT, where he continues the sex abuse cover-up. Flynn is equally notorious. And then there is Bp. Frank Rodimer, whose priest friend who joined him on vacation in Rodimer's exclusive beach vacation house was sexually abusing a 10 year old boy, while Rodimer was in the house. When confronted by media and police, Rodimer claimed he was not aware of this occurring in his home while HE was present!!!

Who else was connected with this "honorable" exclusive club? The late Rev. Dr. Canon Edwards Nason West - formerly Dean and Master of Ceremonies at the NYC Cathedral of St. John the Divine. West was a noted author, liturgist/litugical artist (he painted icons in Orthodox churches).

West was also known to have been "caught" by witnesses, NYC health Dept. inspectors (at the height of the 80's AIDS scare) and police in Sado-Masochist gay clubs, being urinated upon by men and young boys while lying in a "ritual bathtub". At the time, this made the local papers - but West got off unscathed.

West was also heavily tied into the various Catholic network of clergy, liturgists, organists, and architectural renovators who pioneered the organized vandalism from the 60's onward.

You remain in my daily prayers.

Published on November 29th, 2007

It is His Will that we bring the following to the world's attention again....

Do you ever wonder... why will man attempt to build a "new and improved" society, a modern day Tower of Babel, when we know from the beginning that it was not acceptable to God? Thus:

And they said: Come, let us make a city and a tower, the top whereof may reach to heaven: and let us make our name famous before we be scattered abroad into all lands.  And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of Adam were building.  And he said: Behold, it is one people, and all have one tongue: and they have begun to do this, neither will they leave off from their designs, till they accomplish them in deed.  Come ye, therefore, let us go down, and there confound their tongue, that they may not understand one another's speech.  And so the Lord scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build the city. 9 And therefore the name thereof was called Babel, because there the language of the whole earth was confounded: and from thence the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all countries.  [Genesis 11: 4-9]

For the same reason man wants to play God (genetic manipulation, reproductive manipulation, etc.) considering that from the very, very beginning God showed immense displeasure at such tendency. Thus:

Of the fruit of the trees that are in paradise we do eat:  But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of paradise, God hath commanded us that we should not eat; and that we should not touch it, lest perhaps we die.  And the serpent said to the woman: No, you shall not die the death.  For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil. [Genesis 3: 2-5]

Because man, without God, is basically very stupid and when man wants to upstage God, God is certainly not with him.


PURPOSE - Continuation....

The instructions are simple: Just invoke the illumination of the Holy Spirit of God while you ponder upon any of these Points to Ponder and let God guide you to Light. We know that some make-believe religious leaders will say: "What about satan interfering and leading the soul astray?" To those... we invoke Our Lord's Words again:

"...Get the behind me, Satan: the art an offense unto me: for the severest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men." [Matthew 16:23]

 and further

"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and yea shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  For every one that sketch receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.  If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?  Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? [Luke 11:9-13]

 and finally

"But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." [Matthew 23:13]
