From miguel de Portugal @ EU - US - Published on October 30th, 2008

We wish to highlight an interview  (1) with Mark Crispin Miller, Professor of Media Studies at New York University, published elsewhere, which contains information that the willing  (2) should be aware of. We do not know Professor Miller nor any of the other individuals mentioned in the interview, however, since we know, through revelation, that the election rigging being discussed is true and allowed by God (3), we thought we would give our readers the information accompanied by "a face".

This should not discourage the US voter from going to the polls.  Remember, we must always do our part so that God Will do His, even if its through His Passive Will.

From (Mrs.) JC @ US - Published on October 27th, 2008

Do you know if the Church as officially approved the Rosa Mystica devotion?  If not, do you know where this stands?

I am felt a calling under this devotion to promote her but as I talk with people I want to make sure I understand where the Church stands on this devotion.  That won't change my mind about her as I have been personally touched by her so much that I am now going to church everyday and praying the rosary, etc.  But you know there are alot of critics, etc.
 
Thanks for your help!

(Mrs.) JC

A.
The Manifestation of Mary as Rosa Mystica (1) has not been officially approved nor it has been condemned either. Usually when messages are critical of the Administration of the Church the events are denied, if at all possible, or, swept under the carpet if they could not be denied without jeopardizing whatever little credibility said Administration has left.

The Faithful can use the following rule of thumb regarding Apparitions/Messages which are purposely ignored.

a. Since when an Apparition is approved by, and has the endorsement of, Rome it is not required that all Roman Catholics believe in said Apparition/Message, that is, it is left to the discretion of the Faithful....

....it logically follows that....

b. When an Apparition/Message does not contravene the faith nor morals; the requirements are already practiced by the Faithful - like partake of the Sacraments
(2), pray the Holy Rosary (3), offer sufferings life brings upon us (4)  (no self flagellation, please!, etc.); there is no covert fanaticism involved; and the fruit is good, the faithful should not worry about official pronouncements and follow what the Holy Spirit of God indicates them to do about said Apparitions/Messages.

Nonetheless, should the Apparition/Message fall under case (b) above, no local parish should officially promote and/or endorse it lest it cause scandal and confuse the Faithful further.

For example: Assume that in a case (b) Apparition/Message Mary requested that the Viacrucis
(5) is prayed every last Friday of the Month immediately after the Mass. The Pastor should make it possible for the Faithful to fulfill such devotion, and he may even volunteer to lead it - without alluding to said Apparition/Message - since the  praying the Viacrucis is an ancient practice in the Roman Catholic Church.

From (Mr.) IC @ Philippines - Published on October 23rd, 2008

What I find interesting in the referred to article in Washington Post of October 22nd is the following statement:

In language that was by turns mocking and ominous, the newest posting credited al-Qaeda with having lured Washington into a trap that had "exhausted its resources and bankrupted its economy." It further suggested that a terrorist strike might swing the election to McCain and guarantee an expansion of U.S. military commitments in the Islamic world.

I could be mistaken, but this very much sounds like an attempt to prepare the ground, so to speak.

Yours in Christ.

From (Mr.) LP @ USA - Published on October 23rd, 2008

On reading The War Party Embraces Obama- by Justin Raimondo - and noting some Republican defections to Obama (Colin Powell, Ken Adelman, and other neocons) - I wonder whether the neocon faction in the US is reconciling itself to an Obama win, since he is in agreement with them in many ways now (provoke Russia, leave war with Iran on the table, escalate in Afghanistan and Pakistan, bail out the big banks).

In other words, might he be allowed to win the election and take office, to the extent that the neocons have control over this matter?


(Mr.) LP

A. Thank you both for allowing us to publicly address this issue head on.

The links to both articles and our full evaluation/answer my be found in a new brief document just published for the occasion.


From (Mrs.) IW @ N. Ireland - Published on October 20th, 2008

There is one thing I do often ponder about. This is a couple who have been so disillusioned by the Roman Catholic Hierarchy for so long that they ages ago gave up attending Mass etc. Their children do attend Catholic schools, and have gone through the "First Communion and Confirmation, presumably because the rest ot their classes were automatically going and they had no strong objections, accepting it as just part of the routine... That should give you a general background.

At one stage the wife was in despair because, after trying for several years, she just couldn't manage to have a child. She was so desperate that some of us feared she would crack up completely.

They eventually sought medical investigation, and it turned out that, while each of them was perfectly normal in producing seed/ovulating,  the problem was blocked fallopian tubes on her part which prevented the final stage - fertilization.

For many months other members of both families argued about the moral implications of getting the problem solved by the doctors. Some insisted that it couldn't be right because it was forbidden by the Church and it was 'artificial'; it was said to be only the other side of abortion.

Others said it was NOT artificial because nothing artificial was claimed to have been 'created': it was simply assisting the completion of a natural process that was already almost complete anyway, since his seed was normal and her ovulation was normal.

Still others said that only God should decide who would get pregnant and who would not, so artificial means must be shunned.

Of course that begged the question of why, then, it wasn't considered  sinful to do/have a transplant of a vital organ to save a life, if only God should decide when people lived and when they died. If God allowed/meant someone to be crippled, was it not sinful even to use a crutch to ease walking..... it
just went on ad infinitum.  You'll have got my drift!

I must say I find it impossible to see where any sin lies in this situation. Could it be as evil as (I'm told) the Roman Catholic Church says? Clearly Abortion is as sinful as they teach because it destroys life. But this is the DIRECT OPPOSITE of Abortion: this is not actually doing or saying anything re creation: it merely facilitates the completion of a perfectly natural process.

The final irony in it all is that, notwithstanding that the couple don't practise any formal religion, they are, in fact, the nearest thing to  real Christians that I know! She is so kind and self-forgerful as to be almost 'foolish'. I have seen her reply to really serious abuse from neighbours' children by calling with a bouquet of flowers for the mother who had watched it from her window! (This is Northern Ireland, remember!). She's incapable of seeing anyone in need without going out of her way to help. There's just no end to her charity.

It grieves me deeply to hear people saying that God won't recognise those children (3 boys now) as His. It's really none of my business what other people do, of course, but what is the moral verdict on this issue?

(Mrs.) IW

A. 
The first thing that comes to mind is: By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another. [John 13:35]

The second is:  But woe to you... hypocrites; because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men, for you yourselves do not enter in; and those that are going in, you suffer not to enter. [Matthew 23:13]

The Roman Catholic Church is clear - and rightfully so - in forbidding abortion, artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, but, there is a far cry from any of that to a surgical procedure to correct what is no more than a simple "plumbing" disorder.

If we were to follow the logic of those accusers who call themselves Catholics but are not even Christians yet, we would have to follow the pagan custom that some civilizations practiced: If a child was born with any defect, he/she should either be left abandoned to die or be outright destroyed.

May that wonderful couple and their three sons be richly Blessed by God and may they continue to pray for their enemies and persecutors - as the true Christians that they are. If this couple would not pray for them, who would pray for such despicable creatures? (1)

Incidentally - we could not help but notice that the offspring of this Blessed couple are three boys - three distinct persons - which brings to mind the Most Holy Trinity and, of course, Michael, Gabriel and Raphael Archangels.

Since we know that most humans "need a face" to believe, we shall reproduce below the parts of the Roman Catholic Catechism - from The Vatican Site - addressing this particular issue: (2)

2375 Research aimed at reducing human sterility is to be encouraged, on condition that it is placed "at the service of the human person, of his inalienable rights, and his true and integral good according to the design and will of God."165

2376 Techniques that entail the dissociation of husband and wife, by the intrusion of a person other than the couple (donation of sperm or ovum, surrogate uterus), are gravely immoral. These techniques (heterologous artificial insemination and fertilization) infringe the child's right to be born of a father and mother known to him and bound to each other by marriage. They betray the spouses' "right to become a father and a mother only through each other."166

2377 Techniques involving only the married couple (homologous artificial insemination and fertilization) are perhaps less reprehensible, yet remain morally unacceptable. They dissociate the sexual act from the procreative act. the act which brings the child into existence is no longer an act by which two persons give themselves to one another, but one that "entrusts the life and identity of the embryo into the power of doctors and biologists and establishes the domination of technology over the origin and destiny of the human person. Such a relationship of domination is in itself contrary to the dignity and equality that must be common to parents and children."167 "Under the moral aspect procreation is deprived of its proper perfection when it is not willed as the fruit of the conjugal act, that is to say, of the specific act of the spouses' union .... Only respect for the link between the meanings of the conjugal act and respect for the unity of the human being make possible procreation in conformity with the dignity of the person."168

(1) Their behavior is not acceptable even if the couple in question had acted outside the Church ruling on reproductive matters.

Have you ever read any of the "spiritual food" coming from the following site: spiritualfood @ markmallett.com.  His latest entitled "Black Pope?"
 
What is your spiritual discernment regarding Mark Mallett?
 
Thank you.

(Mrs.) JB

A.
If our records and memory do not fail us... you have been familiar with our pages since just before the year 2000. You have corresponded with us frequently via e-mail, have sent hand written correspondence and even a family group picture. Then, from the proverbial "clear blue", on May 16, 2007, you sent the following terse and unsigned note to us: Please remove my email from your lists.  Thank you.  Without even the courtesy of explaining as to the reason - after eight years of correspondence.

Our advise to you and all is that one should not ask for spiritual discernment from people whom are not even consider worthy of what, even in the world and amongst atheists, is commonplace: An explanation for the rupture.

If, of course, you regret your decision of breaking contact with The M+G+R Foundation, you should do what our Faith teaches us: Practice the act of reconciliation and, automatically, whatever offense was made would simply dissolve into thin air forever. It is very easy to go to a confessional and mumble a few generalized sins/transgressions - very, very easy. The proof of the pudding is to, whenever possible and without causing harm to others, reconcile oneself with those that we have offended.

miguel knows - Just yesterday he made a special trip to an establishment - 100 km away from where he resides - to personally apologize to an employee to whom he had been less than kind a week before.

 
From (Mr.) IW @ US - Published on October 13th, 2008 [91st Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima]

I am tired from all these "blessings" that have been personal crosses . The more I pray, receive communion and others "cover" me in prayer  the more my life disintegrates. God may not have favorites but I thought there would be an end to this meltdown.

Where is my guardian angel, any angel, Mother Mary's mantel that is supposed to cover me and my disintegrating family?

Oh , that's right , they are all blessings. I am fast losing my faith, something I never thought possible . Oh yeah , pray more , that's the trick !

Feeling totally abandoned. How are you any different than the Marian Movement of Priests?

Soon, very soon , very very soon?

(Mr.) IW

A. We regret that you feel the way you do, but we are glad that you wrote. The solution to your situation can be found in your letter.  As we explained to you in our response of July 26th, 2008, (1) through this same Forum, God allows suffering upon His children for only two reasons: (a) To help us learn something that is imperative that we learn; and (b) To help others - that is Redemptive Suffering.

When we are faced with great suffering the first thing we must do is ask God to help us see what is that we must learn or just simply endure, so that the suffering - the volume of the megaphone - can be greatly reduced or quickly ended. Then, we must abandon ourselves to His Will, just as He taught us by example:

...He fell upon his face, praying, and saying: My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. [Matthew  26:42]

As we stated above: "The answer to your situation can be found in your letter" and we will help you to see it.

 In your communication you state:
I am fast losing my faith, something I never thought possible.

If the level of your level of faith at this time is such that, because of the great trials that you have endured, is already being lost, you will not be able to safely navigate through what is to come.

THAT is the message that God is trying to get across to you. You must strengthen your faith!

What you are enduring now will look like a Sunday outing when compared with what we will have to face shortly.

We strongly suggest that you - with single mind and soul - pray to God to augment your Faith to the level He has ordained for you from all Eternity. Only God can grant that Grace.

We must never forget that Jesus - in the Flesh - .....wrought not many miracles there, because of their unbelief. [Matthew 13:58]

Please prayerfully review our document WHY ARE OUR PRAYERS NOT ANSWERED? - WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?,(2)   it will give you further insight about this very real problem.

May God grant you the true Faith - the Faith which will withstand what is at the door; the Faith which will help you safely navigate to His Kingdom.

WHY ARE OUR PRAYERS NOT ANSWERED? - WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?

(1)  The letter in question and our response

From (Mr.) Initials Withheld @ USA - Published on July 26th, 2008 [Sts. Joachim and Anne - Grandparents of Jesus]

As many catholics who are trying to follow our Lady, I have been given many crosses to bear.

Everything financial and marital has become extremely difficullt at best, and failing, at worse.

I lost my job, had over $500k stolen from me by another "catholic", lost $500k investing, am near to losing my house, and my wife is threatening me with separation (we have several children).

I have heard it said that God has no favorites, however according to saints and some visionaries today it is said we have been selected to carry the cross so others may have "their eyes opened."

If God does not have favorites why would He appear to have people like me be singled out for negative things?

We only get the negative and not the positive in this life?
 
Thanks and God bless.

(Mr.) Initials Withheld

A. All your questions are very valid and we thank you for the opportunity to address them.

Let us "take it from the top" - Whether God has favorites or not.  For that we go - as usual - to the Fount of Truth : The Holy Scriptures

"....your Father who is in heaven, .... maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust." [Matthew 5:45]

and

"For whosoever shall do the will of my Father, that is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother." [Matthew 12:50]

and

The Son of man shall send his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all scandals, and them that work iniquity. And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the just shine as the sun, in the kingdom of their Father. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. [Matthew 13:41-43]

Obviously God DOES have favorites  although the natural benefits of Creation are available to all.  The question is: How are those natural benefits of Creation used? Obviously, those who use them in accordance to the Will of the Father, is a family member and logically they will shine as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father.

Now - you may say: "Fine, but why this deluge of disgraces?"  Well, the overall answer is found in the Book of Job.

Before God showers upon His children the untold treasures at His command, we have to prove ourselves worthy of Him. Obviously, those who will spend an eternity "...weeping and gnashing their teeth", as the rich man of the parable of Lazarus [Luke 16:19-31],  have no need to prove themselves worthy of Him, thus, no testing is necessary.

But let us take a brief respite to qualify the source of this text with the intent to show that we are not speaking from a purely theoretical point of view having never experienced similar testing.

Before God directed to him the final call, but after his conversion of this writer:

(a) He almost had the house repossessed;
(b) With impeccable professional credentials and contacts in the professions he excelled at, he could not get one single job or contract;
(c) With desirable property to sell - at very good prices - starting with a custom Porsche, the almost repossessed house and quite a few unique precious gems and highly desirable artworks - he could NOT give any of it away;
(d) The payment due to him from selling of business, defaulted on; and last, but not least
(e) He had monthly notes due on outstanding debts amounting to $5,000 (this is in ca. 1987) with a bank balances of ca. $50 and no prospects of income.


He knew it was a test from God and he also knew that there was nothing that God could not do. He would not violate God's Law to unethically or immorally or through deceit earn money.  Then - with all of this "under his belt" - he claimed to Heaven to do Its part since he was doing all that was within his reach to resolve the situation.

Once the test was successfully completed - something that is determined by God - benefits of all kinds started to rain from Heaven.

Once that "rain" turned into a "deluge" and he was giving away most since he had more than enough for his needs.... God said - leave all behind and follow Me.... and he did, through His Grace. [You see, to leave all behind and follow God when one does not have anything to leave behind, is not a test- it is just an act "by default".]

Back to you..... The situation that you describe could only be the result of three scenarios: (a) A test to strengthen you spiritually and an opportunity to prove to Him that, in spite of all, you trust Him and that you know that He will see you through it; (b) There is a lesson that you must learn and have had difficulty learning it - God is using His most persuasive tool: The Megaphone (1); or (c) He simply needs the sacrifice from someone who is willing to endure suffering for the benefit of others. (2)

Item (c) (2) is done with the full cooperation of the suffering soul. When we suffer for redemptive purpose and we continue to moan and groan and complain about the suffering - no gain can come from it. Vicarious redemptive suffering has to be voluntary.

So, what is it? With the above clarifications made - approach your Father and ask Him, in the Name of His Son, Jesus Christ, exactly what is what He wants of you and to let you know so that you may comply... then - do not fret and "pace about" waiting for the answer. He, in His own time - but soon - will make it so clear to you that you will wonder why you had not seen it before.

For that intention we shall pray.

From (Mr.) RB @ Spain - Published on October 10th, 2008

Regarding your recent statement in the Private Forum dated October 1st (response to KD on this page):

"However, if enough of our readers would like that we briefly comment on the daily Mass readings - like a brief e-homily - we would consider doing it as long as we can do so as time allows."

My question is: Could it be possible that through those daily comments or e-homily, if you will, the faithful would unconsciously fall into dependency of The M+G+R Foundation?


(Mr.) RB

A.
If the faithful were to use that logic, he/she would not: (a) watch or listen to the daily news; (b) attend the same house of prayer - regardless of the faith in question; (c) would avoid viwing weather reports; (d) would not sign an employment contract; (e) would not watch movies of his/her favorite actor/actress; (f) would not subscribe to a certain newspaper and/or magazine; and (g) certainly would not read more than one of the documents published by The M+G+R Foundation "just in case".

Of those who pretend to do what miguel de Portugal was called to do by God - including the leaders of organized religion - we are the only ones who: (a) scrupulously make sure that we point, and keep pointing, the Faithful toward God; and (b) truly defer any benefit that may have resulted on anyone, through our intervention, to God - for He is the only One to any Whom Glory is due.

Basically, we: (a) provide the "toll free number" of God; (b) show the Faithful how to "dial the number"; and (c) as a "help desk" would do, assist those who may seek it - or whom God indicates to us -  in clarifying a misunderstanding due to a poor "communication" with God or an outright misinterpretation due to a negative spiritual interference.

We realize that humans are prone to seek other humans to "adore".  Basically, it seems that humans rather adore anything but God, which, of course, shows the demonic activity in the world.

We have repeatedly rejected such notion from anyone - even losing ample financial assistance. Something that has happened to m de P a number of times.
(If they wanted an idol to adore they came to the wrong place!)

Outside of that, there is nothing else we can do.... other than to advise anyone who may be prone to become dysfunctionally dependent on The M+G+R Foundation to: (a) Stay away; but, before , (b) read PSYCHOLOGICAL DYSFUNCTION really is... SPIRITUAL DYSFUNCTION : Its Identification, Treatment and Cure.

We will close with a story from m de P's High School days. By the time we were juniors and seniors most of us smoked [m de P greatly cut down his smoking the moment his father allowed him to smoke...]. One of the girls - ER - who (justly) prided herself of "having it all together" decided to prove to herself (it was not for show off) that she controlled the cigarettes and not all the way around. Therefore, she stopped smoking for six months, then she, as an act of her will, resumed smoking because she had proven to herself to be the master of the cigarettes.


From (Mr.) LP @ USA - Published on October 7th, 2008 [Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary]

"For the first time, astronomers have found an object on a certain collision course with Earth. Fortunately, it is so small it is not expected to cause any damage, burning up in the atmosphere somewhere above northern Sudan in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. It may, however, produce a brilliant 'shooting star'."

Just in time for:
 
(a) the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
(b) the anniversary of the Western defeat of Turkish navies at Lepanto in 1571 - 437 years ago
(c) the 7th anniversary of the start of the Afghan War (Operation Enduring Freedom)

You have warned of a comet strike on the Earth as part of the Sequence (1). Will this event  fulfill this prophetic requirement, or is it just a small/symbolic taste of a much more severe event to come?
 
(Mr.) LP

A.
Just as the tragic 9-11 events and the Consecration of Russia by H.H. Paul II  were reminders of the upcoming fulfillment, or perhaps, virtual fulfillment of Steps No. 1 and 2 (2), the event you refer to is also a reminder and virtual fulfillment of the actual devastating event.

Why God does this? I can only speculate, although it is an educated speculation. God always gives us warnings of what is coming in a symbolic form. A typical Biblical example is found in Chapter 12 of the Book of Ezechiel. (3)

Why? Perhaps, as we have said before, so that no one has any claim against Him such as Ratzinger did when he uttered the following blasphemies
during his visit the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau:

Why, Lord, did you remain silent? How could you tolerate all this?" "Where was God in those days? Why was he silent? How could he permit this endless slaughter, this triumph of evil?"

All can rest assured - the virtual fulfillment will be followed by the actual fulfillment of the prophecies.  Man has not moved a finger in the direction needed to prevent this from happening, Actually, man has done everything possible for it to happen.

Humanity had a chance when H.H. John XXIIII was elected and immediately did all possible to steer the Ship of the Church in the right direction.  Blessedly H.H. Paul VI continued; something that H.H. John Paul I was going to crown with his Pontificate. The moment H.H. John Paul I was taken out of the way, the progress made by Ship of the Church to reach the Light was reversed and the Fate of the World was fixed.

From (Mrs.) Y DM @ USA - Published on October 4th, 2008 [Devotion of First Saturday of the Month]

Dear Family,  please pardon my ignorance, but are you saying that nothing will happen on Oct. 7th?

Also, please be patient.... [my hands are full]  I am not complaining, because I am doing what God wants me to do.

Also pray for all of us, who, despite having good will and praying, have a hard time fathoming what you are saying (fathoming, not believing).

I think God, in His Infinite Wisdom, lets me not understand to believe, but just trusts me to believe.

There has to be many thousands of mothers and grandmothers like me out there, praying, meditating, invoking the Holy Spirit daily, reading your God-inspired info, and just basically realizing that at this point in time, the only thing we can do is pray, be loving persons with  everyone we meet and live with, on a daily basis, and trust that God Himself will show us moment by moment what He wishes us to do.

This is the only way I am able to live and remain sane in this world.

In my poor prayers, and in His Magnificent Will.

(Mrs.) Y DM

A.
Dear, dear friend and all of those "....many thousands of mothers and grandmothers like me out there", let us "take it from the top".

Regarding what is or not going to happen on October 7th or on any other date: We have said, over and over again - we do not give dates for the reasons that we have explained in a document published a long time ago, and frequently cited, (1) as well as for the reasons that we have stated in responding to similar inquiries and, precisely, our response to KD directly below. We may imply something that m de P is not conscious about - but that is the doing of God... Who is the "other" component of the "we" used frequently in our communications.

You sound that you are struggling thus:
"....us, who, despite having good will and praying, have a hard time fathoming what you are saying (fathoming, not believing)."

Welcome to satan's Trick No. 4-D!  Why do we say this? Read your own statements: "...like me...., praying, meditating, invoking the Holy Spirit daily, reading your God-inspired info, and just basically realizing that at this point in time, the only thing we can do is pray, be loving persons with  everyone we meet and live with, on a daily basis, and trust that God Himself will show us moment by moment what He wishes us to do."

If you are indeed doing that - THAT IS precisely what our overall and all encompassing message is!

satan's Trick No. 4-D is making you believe that "you lost the boat all the while you are riding on it".

You, and all who read this page, take note: You have just witnessed what real Spiritual Direction is all about! Do we need to spell it out?

Purpose of real Spiritual Direction: Help the Faithful AVOID satan's snares and help them to stay on course - THAT IS IT!

Yes, it is that simple! [The average Spiritual Directors like to make it complicated for the usual human trait of self exaltation.]

Many, many wish to receive all the communications via e-mail that we issue almost daily, and even more; others feel pressured. We cannot please, simultaneously, all by sending "the many desired" at the same time we send "less than we are now". Well, not to worry - God came with a handy solution: The DELETE button.

We suggest -again - that if what we publish is going to be sped read, it should be deleted instead. What we publish in the Name of God is to be prayerfully read and digested. Speed-reading it will only result in misunderstandings, confusion, and giving satan another opportunity to play a number of his favorite tricks - like Trick No. 4-D (2) mentioned above.

We sincerely hope that we have brought you, and many others, some measure of peace.

May God continue to Bless you all!

From (Mr.) KD @ USA - Published on October 1st, 2008

I'm surprised that Public Forum Part 2 is so highly rated.  It's my least favorite entry because the opinions are nothing new.  They seem to rephrase what Miguel has said.  The two lowest rated items are my favorites.  The Divine Instructions has changed my life, and made me a better person and much closer to God.  I can't thank you enough for this feature!
 
I would love it if you could give us more of a timetable, but since I don't think that's God's will, I'll not belabor the point.

Also - from 11/1/05 through 9/1/06 you updated Divine Instructions every day.  Could you do that again until your mission is complete?

Thank you and may God always bless your workk.

(Mr.) KD

A.
Indeed, many of the letters published in Public Forum Part 2 (1) seem to rephrase what Miguel has said and that is the purpose for that page. First, it gives us a measure, or a mirror if you will, of how well what miguel is transmitting in the Name of God is being understood properly.  Secondly, it gives the opportunity to others, who may have not understood miguel well enough, to understand it when paraphrased by someone else.

We do have some good news about the level of visits to Divine Instructions (2). We use two sets of logs - and one (Google), depends on special code in the page in question which makes it more accurate. Upon reviewing the Google statistics we found out that the Divine Instructions page is only second (by only 1 %) to the Home Page of the Domain in number of visits.

Regarding timetables: Specific dates for specific events distort our natural behavior. Think of this: Man has the tendency to leave for tomorrow what he can, when he can get away with it, although, the popular saying reminds us to "Do not leave for tomorrow what you can do today."

What merit is accrued by a man who turns to God just 30 seconds before his hand slips from the edge of the cliff and drops to his death? He will be saved but.... how much more merit - and suffering saved - will be secured by a man who when "all is going good" freely chooses to turn to, and walk, with God?

What merit would have miguel (3) accrued if when he had to file for bankruptcy for upholding what was right in the Eyes of God, he had claimed "...am leaving all behind and going to serve God." He had nothing to leave behind, but debts, and he would be using God as an escape excuse. On the other hand - when God said to him: "Leave all behind and follow me" miguel was in the best position - in all imaginable aspects - of his entire life, yet, he took advantage of the Grace God gave him to say "Yes" and he sure did!

Do you now understand how knowing dates can really be a drawback?

Regarding the frequent publications of the Divine Instructions - We cut down to every other day for two reasons: (1) Many of our visitors were missing too many of them due to their not being able to access it every day; and (2) Each should be carefully meditated upon and savored fully and forty eight hours is just about right.

However, if enough of our readers would like that we briefly comment on the daily Mass readings - like a brief e-homily - we would consider doing it as long as we can do so as time allows.

We thank you for the opportunity your letter has given to bring to light these matters.

About miguel de Portugal



From (Mr.) TF @ USA - Published on September 29th, 2008 [Feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael]

There is SO MUCH INFO (and disinformation) available on the internet today, that the greatest fear I have is that the prophetic writings of scripture will be used AGAINST Christians. The technology exists today, or is very close, to simulate / create the illusion of many prophetic events.

Those of us who not only seek to prepare ourselves for what is coming, but who sense the future obligation to provide spiritual guidance and support to those who will find themselves "shell shocked" and vulnerable to soul destroying deception, NEED guidance in the months/years ahead as to how the web of deception is being woven around us.

I personally focus on everything dealing with technology and the whole "alien" issues as I see the possibility that this is somehow part of the great deception that is going to lead many away from the faith in Jesus as Son of God.  The New Age is obviously part of the deception and it is now being integrated with the alien scenario.

Thank you for what you do, May God continue to bless and inspire you.

(Mr.) TF

A.
Your kind words Glorify God Who we strive to serve. Your assessment, and that of many others who wrote, are right on target:

(a) Overwhelming and ill conceived information and wanton disinformation abounds in all means of mass communication and multiplies as the deadly virus they constitute.
(b) Prophetic writings of scripture will be used against Christians as we have shown (1) already
(c) Those who have been illuminated through these pages indeed have future obligation to provide spiritual guidance and support to those who will find themselves "shell shocked" and vulnerable to soul destroying deception
(d) To fulfill such responsibility continued guidance is needed in the months/years ahead as to how the web of deception is being woven around us.

This assesment and its conclusion [item (d)] translates (2) into a Divine confirmation of one of the key areas that we have been pursuing for quite a few years. At times it feels that we are going to "wear out" our visitors with the repeated "pounding" in an effort to assist all in the navigation through the web of deception that now submerges the world in darkness.

Of course, we shall continue in the measure and manner that God dictates on a day to day basis.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
