Points to Ponder About


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).

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]


Points To Ponder - October  - December 2005

Published on December 27th, 2005 - Feast of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist

Do you ever wonder why... every other illuminated, researcher, historian and/or enemy of the Faith ascribe full and/or half brothers and sisters to Jesus, yet, from the Cross He said (in reference to Mary and John): "Woman, behold thy son." After that, He said to the disciple: "Behold thy Mother". And from that hour, the disciple took Her to his own." [John 19:26-27]

Obviously if Jesus had had full or half sisters and brothers, according their custom, Mary would have stayed with them and not be with John henceforth - even all the way to Ephesus.

Do you ever wonder why... society was manipulated so that Santa Claus replaced the Three Wise Men of the Epiphany? Because the concept of Santa Claus (*) is man's fabrication, as the False Christ is, and the Three Wise Men were real - actual Astrologers - who knew, from Jews who had been taken to their countries, about an astronomical sign that would announce the arrival of the Messiah.

But that is not all.... Little kids are made to believe in a visible "Santa" while at the same time, but with lesser enthusiasm, they are somehow taught about and unseen God. Later they  find out that Santa really does not exist - that it was a lie. At that moment the subconscious mechanism, aided by the reprogramming by the world starts telling the young person that that invisible God must also be a lie and that sooner or later they too will find out.

Clever, isn't it? Most everyone cooperates with that effective method for the destruction of the incipient faith. Now even Benedict has joined the "bandwagon". Is anyone surprised? If anyone is, they should check their vision and their hearing.
(*) There is a St. Nicholas but he was transformed into an unreal character.

Do you ever wonder why... the Birth of the Savior of the World, Jesus Christ, is celebrated on December 25th? The Church does not really know, but now, you will know the real reason. Rejoice! The celebration date is right on target!

Published on December 19th, 2005

Do you ever wonder why... generally speaking, the countries in the New World who were colonized and "civilized" by ultra Catholic Spain and Portugal ended up being the most poor, most exploited, more unjust and backward nations? We know for a fact that it is not the Catholic Faith that is at fault.

Think about it.... That "picture" has far more information than the proverbial "thousand words."

Published on December 15th, 2005

Do you wonder why... the Vatican makes an issue of clearly stating that "Torture is Unacceptable" (*) while the Papacy claims blanket infallibility, yet that is precisely all they did during the Inquisition, under the approving eye of the Popes of the time, an Inquisition which the Roman Church plays down (in a denial-style mode) jut like the Iranian President is playing down the Holocaust? 

How can we expect the Faith to survive as it is asphyxiated with duplicity and incoherence?

  (*) Which, of course, is unacceptable then, now and forever!

Published on December 12th, 2005

Do you wonder why... those who claim purity of body through celibacy, turn around and, unaware of what they are really doing, practice sado-masochism or self mutilation, piously called "mortification" or "sacrifice" or "purification" or "sin prevention"?

Sadism and masochism have become "the rage" of our decadent world since it is the maximum form of sexual deviation. Of course, when one flagellates oneself it becomes sado-masochism: The same individual administers and receives the pain. Scripturally speaking, only servants/priests of Baal [1Kings 18:28] and the like would engage in such travesty.

Some will protest with: "It has been done for centuries, even by saints."

To that we say: "Christian Administrators" have also killed, or indirectly caused the death of, more humans in "the Name of God" than any other group in human history - acting against every teaching of Jesus, the Christ - from Whom they dared to derive their label of "Christian". Does that make it right? Of course not!

We can offer very effective sacrifices to God through fasting; eating what we do not like; offering extra prayers;  acts of charity (not from our excesses!); dress, eat and drive below our financial means; turn the other cheek, for a change; walk to Fátima, for example, as many Portuguese do; and joyfully accept and offer every inconvenience and aggravation we come across in our daily lives for the love of Jesus, in reparation for the outrages against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the conversion of sinners. We say to offer those that "we come across in our daily lives" and not to go out and look for them. Keep very clear in mind that, when Jesus went to pray to Gethsemane the first thing He did was to ask the Father if it was possible for the chalice to pass Him by
[Luke 22:42].

Make no mistake - anyone who wants to be more of a martyr than Jesus, is under the influence of satan - who always wants to upstage God.

With all of that "Limbo talk" coming from the Vatican and the Press - Do you wonder why... if the Vatican has unilaterally ruled, and insists, that "There is no salvation outside the Church" [Catechism 846], that Baptism is "...necessary for salvation." [Catechism 157], and all other rulings issued with the only real purpose of making themselves indispensable, where are poor Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Jesse, David, Solomon, etc., etc.

If the Church Administrators would have placed their emphasis in Evangelizing as Jesus intended them to do, and not in their survival as an "elite private club", making available to all who desired them the Sacramental Treasure which, in spite of them!, has reached us today, the world would not be the sewer it has become.

No, miguel de Portugal is not "a modernist" , au contraire! miguel de Portugal is only calling a "Spade" a "Spade" so that the disoriented faithful understand why God will use said "Spade" to dig a hole into which to bury a crucified and dead Church Administration before He Resurrects it in Glory as He intended it to be originally: To lead one and all back to the House of the Father.

Published on November 30th, 2005

 Do you wonder why... if the Vatican thinks homosexuals are such a high moral risk in the priesthood they do not immediately defrock all homosexual priests, Bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals?  Temporal and spiritual logic would support the notion that someone who is a risk, becomes a greater one the greater his authority over others is.

In other words - the mockery of God by those who claim to serve Him and represent Him continues. Nothing has changed nor will change until God steps in  and allow upon them what He allowed upon the Temple of Jerusalem in the 1st Century - something we truly look forward to for they have caused enough harm upon humanity already.

 Do you ever wonder why... we, who owe all to God - literally ALL - make such an issue of Thanksgiving Day in the US?

We should be ashamed that we take only one day out of 365 days to Thank God - something that we do not even do properly since the Parishes generally cut down their Mass Schedules on that day so that the families stay home, gorge on food they do not really need while forgetting those who have much less and who die by the millions because they are too poor to survive.

Brethren, make sure that you have something in your hands to show God when you are unexpectedly called to His presence.... and make sure that it is not Pumpkin Pie!

Published on November 19th, 2005

 Do you ever wonder... what John, the Beloved Disciple, meant when he informed us thus:  "Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of a man : and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six." [Rev. 13:18] ?

Obviously St. John did not expect the children of God to engage in complicated mathematical derivations to identify its source as well as its precursor. It wouldhave to  be so obvious that only a child-like mind would spot it.

The number in question is "666". As we have illustrated in various documents, José María Escrivá, founder of the Opus Dei, under the cover of false piety, gave the world his "way" - the famous little booklet that he composed to falsify the true and only Way - (the teachings of) Jesus Christ. This booklet is in essence the "bible" of the Escrivites and it so happens to be composed of  999 maxims.

Of course, it could be argued that "999" is the opposite of "666", yet, they are exactly the same when Escriva's falsification of the very foundation of Christianity is taken into consideration.

May those of have Eyes, See, and Ears, Hear.....

 Do you ever wonder... why if the central and essential message of the Qur'an (Islam's equivalent of the Bible) was for the Christians of the time to follow and obey the teachings of Jesus and for the Jews to also recognize the teachings of Jesus and incorporate them in their beliefs - we have been at each others throats for 1400 years?

Because that is satan's plan. Today - Islamic terrorists; Yesterday - the Crusades. It is all the same with different packaging because man is blind enough to not recognize the difference. Imagine, taking the serpent's advise over God's! [Genesis 3: 1-6]

Published on November 6th, 2005

  Do you ever wonder... why if Jesus stated...

 "Amen, amen I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do; and greater than these shall he do. Because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, that will I do: that the Father may be glorified in the Son." [John 14: 12-13]

 ...when you look around the world, after millions upon millions of Masses and millions upon millions of Rosaries, all you see is that we are rapidly "going to hell in a hand basket"?

The above statement is not a mistranslation since the same message, presented in different manners, may be read in other parts of the New Testament.

So, did Jesus lie? Of course not! For He also stated....

"If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you might say to this mulberry tree, Be thou rooted up, and be thou transplanted into the sea: and it would obey you." [Luke 17:6]

 Thus, the fault is not Jesus'; the fault is our lack of Faith in Jesus. One can go to  "zillion" of Masses and offer  "quinquillion" of Rosaries but it is Faith that really matters. Did not Jesus kept repeating, every time He healed someone: "Your Faith has healed you"?

Brethren, exactly "What part of this you cannot understand"? Faith is not obtained at the nearest Shopping Mall nor absorbed by osmosis by sitting through a Mass or a Rosary - Faith in God is obtained through prayerful request to God - the only One Who can grant such Grace. No Church can!

No, you just can't ask, then "snap your fingers" and "presto!" you are "full of Faith". Did not we also read that "...Jesus advanced in wisdom, and age, and grace with God and men" after Joseph and Mary found Him at the Temple engaged in theological discussions with the doctors at the Temple of Jerusalem? [Luke 2: 46-52]

The more we advance in Grace, the more we become Jesus like; the more we become Jesus like, the more we can act as He did because He promised so.

This is exactly why the Church He established failed, and those who claim to be the Saviors of the Church and mankind, are making the same mistake. The choice is  totally yours - Do you really believe in Jesus? Even if you do not... Do you want to believe in Jesus? Ask, and "ye shall receive" and the Father will see you Home, right here in this Earth. Why wait when you can start tasting and enjoying Eternity now before even crossing the veil?
Believe in God! and He shall set you free!

Did you say that you are not worth it? That such wonders are only for good people (whatever "good people" means to you)? That God is too busy with more important issues than to worry about someone "worthless and unimportant" like you?  Do not keep falling for satan's oldest trick!  When you take that attitude, incited by satan, you are actually blocking God's action in your soul. You are important! Jesus died for you too! Shake off induced negativism and embrace the cross - you will be surprised at the wonderful results!

  Do you wonder... why Benedict XVI appointed Archbishop Levada Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith given his proven and well documented background?

Levada answered that question himself in his most extensive interview yet. Levada told Vatican Radio that the fact that the Congregation now oversees
issues of sexual abuse by clergy, "that given ... the explosion of that on the American scene over the past few years, my experience with that ... may have said to him it wouldn't be bad to have someone also who has this experience.."

We wish to express our gratitude to Archbishop Levada and Vatican Radio for making the discharge of miguel de Portugal's and our function this easy. Anyone who blindly place the future of their souls in the hands of these people - without first testing their spirit, on a case by case basis - certainly deserve what their future will be. Therefore, we must pray for those who have Eyes to See so that they may shake off the slumber they are still entrapped in and act upon the nauseus reality we are all facing.

  Do you wonder... where are the Saints that we Catholics pray seeking their intercession if the Second Resurrection [Rev. 20:14] has not taken place yet?

 They are in Heaven because Heaven is in Eternity and Time and Eternity coexist while Time marches on. View Time as "Eternity in Progress". For more details on Time and Eternity review our document entitled  What is "Time and Eternity"? and "Understanding the Existing Confusion About the Apocalypse"

Published on October 24th, 2005

 Do you wonder... why sects continue to promote corporal punishment as a means to attain holiness and control their sinful natures?

Perhaps they have not yet reached the part in the New Testament when the method is clearly explained by Paul:

And by reason of the exceeding greatness of the revelations, that I should not be exalted overmuch, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, that I should not be exalted overmuch.  Concerning this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.  And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. [ 2 Corinthians 12: 7-9 ]

Or perhaps - since Divine Grace is the requirement - they just have to use other techniques.

Published on October 20th, 2005 [Feast of Mary, Wonderful Mother]

 Do you wonder... why man keeps placing his complete trust in technology?

Have you noticed what happened as the result of Katrina and Rita? What happened as the result of earthquakes in Kashmir? The floods in Central America? The tsunami in S.E. Asia? Do you realize that not even in cutting edge technology US preparations nor response for the hurricanes were even adequate?

Check into the news services worldwide and you will see that the crisises are still "open" in all of those areas. We may still lose as many human beings in the Kashmir area as the result of no proper response than to the earthquake itself.

In the meantime - take a look at some suggestions that we have made regarding unexpected events in our lives such as... "Miss Wilma" knocking at your door.

Published on October 11th, 2005 [Feast of the Motherhood of Mary]

 Do you wonder... why the Book of  Enoch fell on disgrace, to the point of being labeled heretical by the Roman Catholic Church, at the beginning of the ninth century when the canonical Epistle of St. Jude, in verses 14, 15, explicitly quotes from the Book of Enoch [the citation is found in the Ethiopic version in verses 9 and 4 of the first chapter]?

Published on October 4th, 2005 [Rosh Hashanah - Jewish New Year]

 Do you wonder... why only 197 of every 1000 visitors to our Board downloaded a key (to their spiritual and physical well being) document - The Return to "Christendom" : The State and Church Alliance -  A False Hope For the Faithful and whenever we publish something about the Planet "X" or some sort of  "Secret" the readers flock to read them by droves while ignoring yet other very, very serious documents?  

For the same reason tabloids always outsell serious and reliable newspapers.
