Points to Ponder About (1)


On January 22, 2006, we ceased updating our Points to Ponder  page.  God has chosen that we start publishing it again for the benefit of those who have Eyes to See (2) and are now beginning to awake from their life long slumber. Since it is He Whom we strive to serve, we are resuming this page as of May 8th, 2006 - Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces.


Points To Ponder - May - June 2006



Published on June 29th, 2006 - Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul

Do you ever wonder.... what did Jesus really mean when He said:

 ... Who is my mother, and who are my brethren? 49 And stretching forth his hand towards his disciples, he said: Behold my mother and my brethren. 50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father, that is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother. [Matthew 12]

The answer lies in another cryptic statement that also goes ignored (in practice) as most of His Messages do:

21 The brother also shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the son: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and shall put them to death.  [Matthew 10]

In case that some of our readers have difficulty seeing the connection, we will explain it.

"Having the common bond of doing the Will of the Father is far 'thicker' than blood". One who does the Will of the Father will never, ever!, betray any other human being.

Simple, isn't it? Yet Rome has not been able to quite figure it out yet.

Brethren, the "lines have been drawn" and the time for making a choice is just about up.

Do you ever wonder.... why Pompeii was "buried alive" by Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD bringing to mind  Genesis 19:24? (*)

Wonder no more...

Quoting (and translating) from an article in  the magazine Historia y Vida, No.  450

It was not just a handful of those who re-discovered Pompeii in the 18th Century who were scandalized by the frescoes found in the ruined city.  Many with phallic symbols, sexual scenes of couples, in groups and even with animals and mythological characters stood their hair on end.   Francis I, Duke o Calabria and future king of Sicily, had some of such "artistic" scenes placed away from the public eye.

Many of the erotic scenes decorated the houses of prostitution, which were many in the city - 25 (in a city which only had 35 bakeries!).

The inscriptions on the walls have revealed the prices charged as well as the name and origin of the prostitutes which generally were Greek or Oriental slaves.

The question that we must ask ourselves now is - Is the moral condition of the world - at large - today any better than it was in the time of Abraham and Lot or when the Vesuvius buried Pompeii alive?  Isn't God Eternal and His Laws and methods unchanging?

Shouldn't we take a "collective peek" at the many unusual  and very recent geoastrophysical changes brought to our attention?

Just a thought.... Of course, keep in mind that miguel de Portugal has been accused of being pessimistic....

Do you ever wonder.... what happened to the Faith? Wonder no more!

Do you ever wonder.... what Franklin Delano Roosevelt meant when  he said: "They (who) seek to establish systems of government based on the regimentation of all human beings by a handful of individual rulers call this a new order. It is not new and it is not order."? (*)

He may have not been aware of the prophecy that he was making but, for those who have Eyes to See, this 1941 statement could have been only made if  one had a prophetic vision of the post 2001 world.

Do you wonder if.... you should believe what miguel de Portugal writes?

Well, if you stop and think about it, what would be the consequences in either case?

(1) Yes, you believe him but the apocalypse does not manifest itself (do not turn on the TV News because that would neutralize this condition) . What would then be the consequences of having believed him and acted upon what he said? You would have drawn closer to God; started practicing the Catholic Faith with renewed fervor; acknowledged the uniqueness of the Petrine Ministry; would partake of the Holy Sacraments often and would place your total trust in God and not man.

(2) No, you chose not to believe him. Well, Jehoshaphat and the King of Israel also ignored Micaiah - which providentially means "Miguel"

But how about miguel de Portugal's detractors? - you may still ask.

Exactly what does anyone expect. We have exposed the Roman Church Administration's manipulation of Fátima to the point of publicly stating that, were there enough time left, we would have dragged them to the The Hague charging them with being the key accessory to the greatest crime against mankind (World War II); we have exposed the reality of the Opus Dei and their future plans; we have called the Marian Movement of Priest's bluff; we have exposed the putrid underbelly of those upon whom holiness and infallibility has been bestowed ; exposed the Throne of Evil; called off the blanket Papal infallibility charade and much more.... and you are surprised that miguel de Portugal has detractors? The whole world would have to be brain dead if he did not!

Well, in any case, the choice is yours... it has always been by Divine Decree - "Free Will" it is called


Published on June 7th, 2006

Do you wonder why.... during the last two thirds of John Paul II pontificate you almost heard the name of the Vatican's Press Office Director, Joaquín Navarro Valls, mentioned almost as much as your heard the Pope's name and now, with them completely in charge with Ratzinger in,  you do not hear much of him anymore?  Perhaps of you review the true Trajectory (and calvary) of H.H. John Paul II and learn about what Navarro-Valls' specialty is, by his own mouth, maybe you may understand Ratzinger's job better.

When will people realize that miguel de Portugal is not speaking of his own accord, but in the Name of God?  What will it take, Step No. 1?  No, not even that.... Jesus raised Lazarus at the gates of Jerusalem and within a week they crucified Him.

Even though Jesus had announced it, before hand, through Luke 16:

  29 And Abraham said to him: They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30 But he said: No, father Abraham: but if one went to them from the dead, they will do penance. 31 And he said to him: If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead.

If that is not sheer stupidity - we do not what it is... but, then again, that is hallmark of the children of Adam and Eve, isn't it?


Published on June 2nd, 2006 - First day of Shavout [Jewish Feast of Weeks]

Do you wonder why.... the war in Iraq goes from bad to worse?  You may find the answer, mystically speaking, in a document we published on August 15, 2002, outlining our position regarding said war.


Published on May 31st, 2006 - Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Do you wonder why.... so many Catholics seem to be always chasing the "latest Marian Apparition" and the "latest Messages from Heaven" when all that needs to be said  has been said by Her, over and over again, yet precious few even bother to try to obey? If this is so painfully obvious to us, do they think that God does not notice?

Counting on the Mercy of God? Don't count on its unless you have exhausted every avenue that He has given each one of us to get and stay on the right path. His Mercy is for those who really try and for the innocent who, by no fault of their own, are in the dark about these matters.  He even talks through dates-related-to-events and we continue to ignore Him.  Humanity - wake up and smell the coffee before there is no more coffee left to smell!



Published on May 28th, 2006 - Alternate Day for Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord

Do you wonder why.... the European Union leaders did not include any mention about God in the European Constitution?  Today's posting in our Public Forum will answer that question in full. But if it does not,  maybe this or that document will.


Published on May 25th, 2006 - Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord

Do you wonder why.... two men wearing white garments asked those who witnessed the Ascension: "Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven?"

Because God wanted to inform mankind through those witnesses that: "This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven.", [Acts 1: 11-12] thus warning mankind about the manifestation of the False Christ at the End of These Times - just about now.

When Jesus returns to destroy the False Christ and his falsified Kingdom (the promised Golden Era) He will do so exactly as He did when He left, except, this time all of mankind will be able to witness His arrival regardless of where they may be.  This is a feat that the falsifier will not be able to duplicate and why one of their main options is to exploit the appearance of a blood-line successor of Jesus. And you probably thought that The Da Vinci Code and its immense popularity was just another entertainment fad....


Published on May 21st, 2006 - Mary, Mother of Light 

Do you wonder why.... if the Prophet Mohammed stated in the Qur'an (S. III 55) that God the Father said:
'Behold! God said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow Thee superior."'
and of Mary,

God the Father proclaims Mary perpetual virginity (S. XXI. 91):

"And (remember) Her who guarded Her chastity: We breathed into Her of Our Spirit, and We made Her and Her Son a Sign to all peoples."

The angels announce Her Immaculate Conception (S.III. 42):

 "O Mary! God hath chosen thee and purified thee - chosen thee above the women of all nations."

Christians made an issue of persecuting anything related to Islam?

You may find the answer to that question and many other issues that may have puzzled you for years if  review more of the basic teachings of the Qur'an and how they relate with Judaism and Christianity. Then, perhaps you will realize what is the price of following anyone blindly.


Published on May 19th, 2006

Do you wonder why.... such an attack has been mounted, openly by Opus Dei and less openly by the Roman Church at large,  against the book and movie The Da Vinci Code, when the release, and heavy promotion by the mighty National Geographic Society, of the Gospel of Judas [which is far, far more damaging to the Christian Faith by demolishing, in essence, the whole New Testament] was met with complete indifference?

The "clue" to the answer may be found here for the reasons are almost exactly the same. "Almost" because, this time, the situation has all the signs of having been a "Staged Production".


Published on May 13th, 2006 - Anniversary of the First Apparition of Mary in Fátima

Considering the "Point to Ponder About" below (May 8th)... One wonders what really happened? Did God go back on one of His Fundamental Laws? Did the Scribe wrote down the wrong information? or Did Moses actually defied the same Laws he was so upset about others breaking?

In this "Holy 'Whodunnit'" the Faithful may immediately jump at the second choice because God does not go back on His Word and "God forbid that anyone imputes Moses (or any other Biblical character, for that matter) having made a mistake" (1)  - But... "Scribe error"??  Then.... how many Scribe errors are in the Holy Scriptures? What can we then believe?

Not to worry.... as we have often repeated, when something does not look right in the Holy Scriptures let us go back to the Repository of Wisdom and we will shall find the answer - The Holy Scriptures themselves!

What if Moses made a mistake? David did, therefore, why Moses could not also make a serious mistake. [Do not forget what David did to Urias the Hethite  to legalize his adultery. David had his loyal servant Urias murdered so that he could keep his wife! [2 Kings Ch. 10-12] ]

Therefore, let us check the possibility that Moses made a serious mistake.  Scrolling down beyond Exodus 32:26-29 we read:

33 And the Lord answered him: He that hath sinned against me, him will I strike out of my book: 34 But go thou, and lead this people whither I have told thee: my angel shall go before thee. And I in the day of revenge will visit this sin also of theirs. 35 The Lord therefore struck the people for the guilt on occasion of the calf which Aaron had made. [Exodus 32:33-35]

Assuming that Moses erred, it appears that God completely ignored the value of Moses' settlement of the score by ordering  "...let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour...." since God clearly stated that He would dispense Justice in the future Himself.

We can almost be sure that Moses did not order what is being attributed to him in verses 26 through 29, once we read what is written immediately after verse 29:

30 And when the next day was come, Moses spoke to the people: You have sinned a very great sin: I will go up to the Lord, if by any means I may be able to entreat him for your crime. 31 And returning to the Lord, he said: I beseech thee: this people hath sinned a heinous sin, and they have made to themselves gods of gold: either forgive them this trespass, 32 Or if thou do not, strike me out of the book that thou hast written.

 If Moses had indeed settled the score through "...let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour....", why would he then go back and try to make amends with God and personally assume their sin at the expense of his eternal life.

This, brethren, is why the understanding of the Word of God necessitates the Illumination of the Holy Spirit of God. In this manner, even if a Scribe became creative with the Word of God in exchange of a few silver coins (2), the Faithful can quickly spot the problem and find the harmonious truth - all within the Inspired Word of God in the Holy Scriptures.

________________________________________
(1) A question remains - Was Moses less than perfect, a perfection man frequently ascribes to every Biblical character?  We know that Moses, as all Biblical characters except Jesus and Mary, was not perfect, after all, in chapter 34 of Deuteronomy we read that "Moses seeth the promised land, but is not suffered to go into it."  Specifically in Chapter 20 of Numbers we read:

12 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron: Because you have not believed me, to sanctify me before the children of Israel, you shall not bring these people into the land, which I will give them.

(2)  As this seems to be the situation in this case.


Published on May 8th, 2006 - Feast of Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces

Do you ever wonder where... the religious leaders got the idea to murder anyone who did not believe as they taught?

When Moses came down from  Mt: Sinai with the Tablets of the Law found Aaron leading the Chosen People in the adoration of a golden calf
he called out [Exodus 32:1-29]

26 Then standing in the gate of the camp, he said: If any man be on the Lord's side let him join with me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him: 27 And he said to them: Thus saith the Lord God of Israel: Put every man his sword upon his thigh: go, and return from gate to gate through the midst of the camp, and let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour. 28 And the sons of Levi did according to the words of Moses, and there were slain that day about three and twenty thousand men. 29 And Moses said: You have consecrated your hands this day to the Lord, every man in his son and in his brother, that a blessing may be given to you. [Exodus 32:26-29]

What makes this situation so interesting is that God had just given Moses the Tablets with the Commandments written by His Own Finger and one of those Commandments is "Thou shalt not kill." [Exodus 20:13 and Deut. 5:17]

A prohibition that God clearly had even established before the Commandments were given to Moses, i.e., when He condemned Cain [Genesis 4:15] and demonstrated by taking care of Egyptians Himself [Exodus Chs.  6 - 14]

We refer the reader to our documents on Biblical Literalism - Part I and Part II in order to better understand the above.
