Published on January 31st, 2012 [Feast of St. John Bosco]

From miguel de Portugal

On our January 29th post we stated: More on David's violation of two key Commandments coming soon.

We shall do that today for the Glory of God and, we pray, fo the benefit of our readers.

On chapter 12 of the Second Book of Samuel we see how God used the prophet Nathan to cause David to pass judgment and dictate sentence against himself. Thus:

[5] And David's anger being exceedingly kindled against that man, he said to Nathan: As the Lord liveth, the man that hath done this is a child of death. [6] He shall restore the ewe fourfold, because he did this thing, and had no pity. [7] And Nathan said to David: Thou art the man.

then...

[13] And David said to Nathan: I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said to David: The Lord also hath taken away thy sin: thou shalt not die. [14] Nevertheless, because thou hast given occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, for this thing, the child that is born to thee, shall surely die.

before that, God had also said....

[10] Therefore the sword shall never depart from thy house, because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Urias the Hethite to be thy wife. [11] Thus saith the Lord: Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thy own house, and I will take thy wives before thy eyes I and give them to thy neighhour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. [12] For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing in the sight of all Israel, and in the sight of the sun.

and so it happened that another of David's son, Absalon went to war against his father.

As we pray and hope that you have heard us say often:  Just because one receives absolution after the Sacrament of Reconciliation, it does not mean that the penitent is "home free". The sins have been forgiven, but reparation must be made. David violated two of the Ten Commandments; enough for an Eternal death sentence, yet that sentence was commuted because of his acknowledgment and repentance.... but restitution had to be made.

That is exactly what was meant by "The Lord also hath taken away thy sin: thou shalt not die." and then "Therefore the sword shall never depart from thy house ... Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thy own house, and I will take thy wives before thy eyes I and give them to thy neighhour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing in the sight of all Israel, and in the sight of the sun.

The only way that the level of reparation required by Divine Justice can be reduced, and even completely erased, is by the generous application of Divine Mercy. However, Divine Mercy cannot be "picked up" at the local supermarket; not even at the very high end establishments for the rich. The only way that we can hope (we have no rights to it; we can only hope for it) to obtain some Mercy to reduce our debt to Heaven is to....

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.(*) [Luke 6:36]

Which is clearly explained by Paul...   

And be ye kind one to another; merciful, forgiving one another, even as God hath forgiven you in Christ. [Eph. 4:32]

Brethren, once again we remind one and all: Make sure that you have enough oil for your lamps [Matt. 25:1-13] because if you do not, there will not be any Mercy forthcoming to you when the bridegroom shows up.
____________
(*)  Remember, that means that we must sincerely strive to be merciful as our Father is merciful because, by definition, no one can be "as God Is". satan and his cohorts tried, and you know what their fate was.


From (Mrs.) IW @ US

My heart is troubled by a request from Heaven which is difficult for me, as quieting my soul in meditation is difficult. Would you enlighten me on the true meaning of: "Speak to me by allowing all your heart to be exposed to me"!

Difficulty getting to the "center" and emptying out all else.

Would so appreciate any suggestion.

Time is getting short.

IW

A. We will respond to your very valid question on a two step basis. Today, we shall give you some background information to ponder about. Then, God Willing, on a future post we will complete the response.

Denial - about which we have spoken much - varies in magnitude and type.

Magnitude of Denial: A human may be totally free of a state of denial or be in complete denial. Most individuals find themselves somewhere in the 30 to 70 % range of such scale.

Type of Denial: Denial may be external or internal. A typical external denial would be a wife who knows, and admits to herself, that her husband is being unfaithful, yet does not admit that to anyone.

Using the same example.... Internal denial would be that she refused to acknowledge to herself the reality that her husband is being unfaithful to her.

In this example, there will certainly be no hope for the situation if she were in internal denial, while there would certainly be hope in solving the problem if the denial in question is merely external.

Now, ponder that in your heart and we are sure that when we publish Part II, all will become crystal clear to you.

From miguel de Portugal

There are two readings of this past week which we wish to highlight for different reasons.

First we have the Gospel for Thursday (of the 3rd week).... where we read:
[our underscoring]

[Block A] And he said to them: Doth a candle come in to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick? For there is nothing hid, which shall not be made manifest: neither was it made secret, but that it may come abroad. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

[Block B] And he said to them: Take heed what you hear. In what measure you shall mete, it shall be measured to you again, and more shall be given to you. For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, that also which he hath shall be taken away from him. [Mark 4:21-25]

From Block A we can learn three things:

(a) Secrecy, such as the various cults within the Roman Church practice, is against the teachings of Christ.
(b) He warns then, that such secret behavior, sooner or later, will be made manifest to all.
(c) Only those who have ears to hear will realize the seriousness of what He is teaching and warning about in two brief sentences.

From Block B we can also learn three things:

(a) We must share what He shows/reveals to us and not hide it.
(b) He will then proceed to show/reveal, not only in the same measure, but even more.
(c) Those who have not shared what He has shown/revealed with those intended by God, however little the transgressor may have, will be taken away.

There is enough teaching in just those five verses to keep us pondering them in our hearts for a full year. It would have taken less that four minutes to deliver such an important Homily at Mass, yet we would be surprised if even at one Mass in the world that was explained.

In the Old Testament Reading for Friday (of the 3rd week).... we will discuss what was omitted. A few verses of that particular reading follows:

[2] In the mean time it happened that David arose from his bed after noon, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and he saw from the roof of his house a woman washing herself, over against him: and the woman was very beautiful. [3] And the king sent, and inquired who the woman was. And it was told him, that she was Bethsabee the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Urias the Hethite. [4] And David sent messengers, and took her, and she came in to him, and he slept with her: and presently she was purified from her uncleanness: [5] And she returned to her house having conceived. And she sent and told David, and said: I have conceived. [2 Samuel 11]

What we have highlighted in red is what was omitted in the Mass Reading, yet it is a very important part of the story of David's double violation of the Ten Commandments.

"presently she was purified from her uncleanness:" = "Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness."

Why is this so important? To dispel any doubt whatsoever that when she "slept" with David she was not already pregnant by her husband. Once again, Biblical coherence reigns supreme.

More on David's violation of two key Commandments coming soon.

Glory to God in the Highest and Peace to His People om Earth!



Published on January 27th, 2012 [International Holocaust Remembrance Day]

From miguel de Portugal

We have been made aware of a new "messages from Heaven" site: Locutions to the World. (1)  Utilizing a  text-to-voice conversion program, courtesy of another generous cooperator, we were able to  review some of their claims. We will be very brief because, if we were going to extend ourselves, we would write a book about this replacement to a failed Marian Movement of  Priests (2). There are, however, several items we wish to highlight:

(a) While Don Gobbi was just a plain diocesan priest, this new star - Monsignor John Esseff -  seems to be the Spiritual Director God. (3)
(b) While it took the Marian Movement of Priests until 1994 to start showing its fangs, these locutions, approved, blessed and promoted by Esseff are so politically oriented that they are an affront to God.
(c) While it was harder to connect the alleged locutions of Gobbi with the commandeering (4) of well established Divine Messages, as part of the Falsification of the Second Coming of Christ, Esseff's fare "announce it from the top of the roofs" - thanks be to God for it makes our work easier.
(d) In the introduction page, after Esseff's auto lauds, we read: "The beginning locutions are very special; focusing on the Fatima Vision (released by the Vatican (June 2000)". As our readers should know by now, such revealed Third Part of The Secret of Fatima was incomplete. (5)
(e) While Gobbi's alleged locution were polished, and in most (prior the year 1994) cases, could have passed for real, the few alleged locutions promoted by Esseff that we read, from either Jesus or Mary, are intellectually pretentious, yet immature, at best.

We must, however, point out that Esseff and alleged locutionist are not the only ones embarked this Titanic-Concordia of disinformation. There is a source from South America, who claims to be directly informed by Elijah, and who carrying out their disinformation campaign far and wide in the Spanish Speaking world. Their writings - "revelations" - were such that at times we thought that they were against Ratzinger while at other times they were promoting him. We finally concluded that they were promoting Ratzinger.

Tragically, many will fall for this kind of disinformation which, when coupled with the in-bred blind obedience of most Roman Catholics and their lack of Evangelization, will yield the highest percentage - from among most religious group - of individuals being led astray by the False Christ.

Let us continue to pray for the innocent souls whose Eyes and Ears are still closed so that they awaken soon, and thus minimize their suffering.

What Sister Lucia wrote and sent to the Pope was only the imagery without the explanation of what it meant as per Mary's verbal explanation at the time of the revelation.


As we observe..... the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, let us not forget that the root of all anti Semitism in the Western world may be found in the New Testament wherein, a point was (and is) made to blame all Jews, not just the fanatics, for the Crucifixion of Jesus.

Whether it was a translation problem or done on purpose, it is something that the alleged Christians, who seldom ever follow the teachings of the Messiah, Whose Holy Name they have converted into a synonym for their self glorification, continue to use to denigrate Jews.

Let us make this very clear: The Jews did not crucify Jesus; the fanatics did!


Published on January 25th, 2012 [Conversion of St. Paul]

From miguel de Portugal

The Ephesians were then, and we are now, warned by St. Paul that...

Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice, And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. [Ephesians 6:11-16]

...and it is precisely because of such warning that we want to highlight these old, but very relevant now, news for those who may have missed this post in the News Commentary section:
[our highlights]


Fr. C. John McCloskey recently returned home to Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his priesthood. A somewhat shy man, McCloskey has been responsible for many conversions to the Catholic Church, including Judge Robert Bork, Newt Gingrich, Lawrence Kudlow and Dr. Bernard Nathanson. (Before his conversion, Nathanson had been a NARAL founder and abortionist who was responsible for the deaths of thousands of babies.)

A few years ago, McCloskey was assigned by his order, Opus Dei, to Chicago. So he was only back for a visit. He has been missed. Many of us are still wondering what he is doing in Chicago. (1)


Comments: As anyone who has been informed about the activities of Opus Dei knows, once you are "captured" you are "owned", even if you are not a "card carrying" Opus Dei member.

The reason why it is so easy to capture high-profile individuals is because Escrivá twisted the Scriptures in a manner where he "proved" that you can serve Mammon if the alleged ultimate purpose is to serve God. (2) We must admit, it is a devilishly clever concept (which will land most in hell and a few with long sentences in purgatory).

What is also devilishly clever is to pit a card carrying Opus Dei man, former Senator Santorum, against a captured, but not card carrying, Opus Dei man, former Speaker N. Gingrich.

All anti-Opus Dei energies will be spent against Mr. Santorum while opening an eight lane highway for Mr. Gingrich nomination as the Republican candidate to the White House. Of course, once an Opus Dei infected Republican is nominated as an official candidate, only God, running as a Democratic candidate will defeat him.

Clever, isn't it? We shall see what God does about this. Remember, God allowed Hitler to finish out the destruction of Europe; therefore, do not  count on God necessarily running as the Democratic candidate to the White House....

(2) The fallacy in the theological foundation of Opus Dei


In an effort to.... clarify the meaning/purpose of the parables used by our Lord Jesus, let us resort to the Word of God.

In Matthew 13: 34-35 we read....

All these things Jesus spoke in parables to the multitudes: and without parables he did not speak to them. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.

When Matthew states "which was spoken by the prophet", he was referring to what we read in the Psalms: 77:1-5 (78):

Understanding for Asaph. Attend, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in parables: I will utter propositions from the beginning. How great things have we heard and known, and our fathers have told us.  They have not been hidden from their children, in another generation. Declaring the praises of the Lord, and his powers, and his wonders which he hath done. And he set up a testimony in Jacob: and made a law in Israel. How great things he commanded our fathers, that they should make the same known to their children:  [Psalm: 77 (78):1-5 ]

That is, our Lord Jesus Christ was explaining, not hiding, through parables what needed to be made "known to their children".

But then we read:

Why speakest thou to them in parables?

Jesus answered and said to them: Because to you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven: but to them it is not given. For he that hath, to him shall be given, and he shall abound: but he that hath not, from him shall be taken away that also which he hath.

Therefore do I speak to them in parables: because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And the prophecy of Isaias is fulfilled in them, who saith: By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand: and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive. For the heart of this people is grown gross, and with their ears they have been dull of hearing, and their eyes they have shut: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them
. [Matthew 13:11-15]

There seems to be an incoherence. If parables are used to explain Divine mysteries better, to make them easier to understand, why then Jesus says: I speak to them in parables: because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

No, the translators do not seem to have made a mistake as some Bibles explain in their footnotes. What happens is that only "their children" (from Psalm 77) will understand even when Jesus uses a parable to explain a Divine concept or principle which escaped all before. Those who are not to understand will not, as God explained through Isaias: By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand: and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive.

That is - even when the transmission of such information has been simplified through their explanation via a parable, those who are not to understand it, will not.

miguel de Portugal comments: It is now, after digesting the above clarification from God, that  I realized why we have encountered, well educated adults whom, upon reviewing some of our documents which clearly explain some of the Divine secrets (like the Secret Concept of the Holy Trinity) claim that they cannot understand it or that it is to complex for them, while, on the other hand, individuals with very limited education can grasp the concept in an instant.

The extreme case being when we personally explained the Secret Concept of the Holy Trinity to the eight year daughter of  long time acquaintances. The little girl grasped it after just one explanation and assured us that she would explain it to her father, an Assistant Dean at the University of Salamanca, as soon as she returned home with her mother (mother and daughter were visiting us that day).

Now I also see why God moved us to make the FYI&R and Divine Encouragement pages public again.

Today the Chinese.... celebrate their New Year - the year 4,710 - the Year of the Dragon.

Of course, today there is also a New Moon; that is, a darkened moon; a moon that does not give her light. A reminder of what is to come:

[21] For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. [22] And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened....  [29] And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved: [30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty. [Matthew 24]

No doubt about it - God's "Twitter" account has been busy lately.


In today's Gospel we read.....

For they said: He is become mad. And the scribes who were come down from Jerusalem, said: He hath Beelzebub.... Amen I say to you, that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and the blasphemies wherewith they shall blaspheme:  But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never have forgiveness, but shall be guilty of an everlasting sin.  Because they said: He hath an unclean spirit. [Mark 3: 21-22, 28-30]

Although we have discussed and explained the theological details of the the sin against the Holy Ghost before, today we will give it an "every day life" meaning.

When an individual - any individual - filled with the Spirit of God, in a way that is visible to all and has been confirmed through words and deeds for years - is viciously attacked with the intent of harming his/her work as well as his/her relationships with family, friends and potential associates, the attacker is - in the eyes of God - blaspheming against the Holy Ghost. The consequence for the attacker will be as set forth by Jesus in the above and related verses.

If the attacker dies in that state - that is, without repenting for such behavior - you may rest assured that he/she shall be guilty of an everlasting sin.

That is one sin ("against the Holy Ghost") that cannot be "patched up" after the last breath is exhaled.

It is our hope that we have brought to an everyday life level the meaning of the severe statement made by our Lord Jesus Christ; a message about which many would think "it does not apply to me" or "it could never apply to me, after all, I am not expelling demons" as Jesus was doing when He was accused of being possessed by the spirit of Beelzebub .


miguel de Portugal comments: It is now, after digesting the above Gift from God - remember, I am just a "gofer"- that I fully understand the why of a specific prayer that God asked me, years ago, to offer every day on behalf of  individuals who are about to die unexpectedly. We do not share that prayer here because it is specific to the function m de P has been called to fulfill.

However, what you can do is provide assistance to anyone that you know, who is in such situation, to recognize their error and stop sinning against the Holy Ghost.


Three reminders......

Why Mr. Santorum "must get" to the White House

Who are "rooting" for him within the US

Who are "rooting" for him outside the US

One last reminder....

Let us pray.

We have noted some disturbing, but not surprising, developments in the Garabandal front.

In the only recent publication left that seems to be true to the spirit of Garabandal, we have seen several articles and interviews where:

(a) For the first time we read (or hear) about certain events that should have been in just about any Garabandal book and/or publication due to their tremendous supernatural dimension, yet they were not; and
(b) Local residents who have never been interviewed before (very hard to believe!) are now being interviewed and who that not even 5 % of what transpired in Garabandal has been told.

Stand back! It seems that we are about to start hearing of a New and Improved Garabandal that will better suit the plans of the manipulators. (1)

We wonder when the Medjugorje Star Benefactor - Vienna's Cardinal Christoph Schönborn  - or his equivalent, will show up there.

God continues to.... "tweet" humanity.

Do you know what the name of the Costa Concordia means?

concordia = concord (agreement between persons, groups, nations, etc.), harmony

miguel de Portugal comments: The world has been informed that the "agreement between persons, groups, nations, etc." just sunk while those responsible where unable to do a thing to prevent it.  As a matter of fact, those responsible actually caused it to sink. Those with Eyes to See and Ears to Hear should see the striking parallel.

From miguel de Portugal

Could it be that God has been reminding us of our duplicity in word and deed since 1864?

The first time "In God We Trust" appeared on our coins was in 1864 on the new two cent coin, and by 1909 it was included on most the other coins. During the height of the cold war, on July 11, 1955, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Public Law 140 making it mandatory that all coinage and paper currency display the motto. (1)

We claim that "In God We Trust" when the truth is that it is "In Gold We Trust"

It is interesting to note the possible connection with the following prophecy found in the Message of La Salette (2).

  "In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls.

"Evil books will be abundant on earth and the spirits of darkness will spread everywhere a universal slackening in all that concerns the service of God. They will have great power over Nature: there will be churches built to serve these spirits.

And now.... a very serious warning about the reality of the Catholic King Syndrome

Once again God comes to our assistance so that we can prove to the skeptics that what we pronounce in His Name is indeed true.

God continues to......alert us, yet few notice.  As we approach the 100th Anniversary of the tragic end of the Titanic ("Not even God can sink it!" it was said) the world is faced with the partial sinking of the Costa Concordia.

Just as God has done before, in this wake-up-and-remember call, the loss of life was very small, yet, considering the way the Captain and crew handled the accident, if the ship had been two or three miles off-shore, most likely over 4,000 people would have died.

Where is the "God alert" in all of this? Think of it.... With one hundred years of technological advances under our belt, man's stupidity completely neutralized said technical advances. Absolutely nothing has been learned.... and that is the Divine Reminder.

It is only with God that we are able to overcome our natural stupidity, a stupidity which surpasses that of any member of the animal kingdom.


Sometimes in prayer.... one prays (from a card or a book) deferring to the Will of the Father or  that of Jesus or that of the Holy Spirit thus increasing the confusion of the Faithful.

There is only One Divine Will - which is manifested identically through the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen!


In today's Mass Gospel (Mk 2:23-28)..... Jesus reminds us that:

The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath. [Mark 2:27]

We, in His Name, remind the Faithful that, likewise, institutionalized religion was made for man, and not man for institutionalized religion.

Man was made by and for God, and God alone.

After much prayer and meditation this is what I have been guided by God to do regarding the time associated with our publications in the Domains:

A. We will strive to publish the Divine Encouragement page every other day, adding whatever comments God wills that we add to His Words.

B. We will strive to publish the FYI&R page on the days when the Divine Encouragement is not published. We will strive to publish faith building material in this page and, occasionally, faith related matters which are directly connected to key events of End of These Times. For example, something like: Don't discount Rick Santorum's candidacy yet. The Opus Dei will not give up that easy in trying to place their man in the Oval Office. They already control the US Supreme Court, the Vatican and most of Europe.

Both pages will be available to all: 1 % as well as the up-to-now mostly neglected 99 % of the Domain visitors.

C. We will publish the News Commentary page occasionally, highlighting news related matters which are directly connected to key events of the End of These Times. For example, we will not be covering: the ongoing sagas in Syria, with the Israel-Palestine conflict, and Africa's on going bloodshed, etc. Although related to the End of These Times, they are "no news"; they have become the daily fare in all the news bulletins.

However, the Argentinean President's "vanishing cancer" is another story; the effort by Iran to push all possible hot buttons of the US is another story; the simultaneous downgrading the credit rating of several European Union countries, France included, by the US rating agency Standard and Poor's after the closing of the markets on Friday, with the US markets not opening on Monday even though European markets do open, is another story; etc. These types of "another story" news events, we will strive to dissect for our readers, as time allows.

We will strive to accomplish the above as long as we do not neglect other areas associated with our publishing information in the Domains and other behind the scenes functions.

We thank the few Family Members who wrote supportive and encouraging letters after our January 9th post. We will make an effort to respond to each individually instead of offering a blanket response on this page. It may take a while but they certainly deserve that we make an extra effort and respond to each one individually as opposed to offer them a generic response.

May God continue to Bless and Keep you!

We will not post any new material on this page until, at least, January 16th.

We need to stand back and "regroup" (as much as that is possible for one single human being) and determine in which manner Our Lord Wills that we better utilize the time alloted to the Domains. There is no one on location to help us in our day to day operations nor in the day to day necessities associated with living, even if that living is in a very simple manner.

Priorities need to be reassessed and then reassigned. Right now, the document download rate for a month is: Over 440,000 four-page equivalent documents per month while the Divine Encouragement and Private FYI&R documents represent less than 1 % of the viewed documents.

It does not make human sense to spend the time associated with the publishing of the Divine Encouragement and Private FYI&R pages when those who benefit from it are such a small fraction on a worldwide scale. In addition, it seems that the sharing level of said documents is very low, therefore their reach may be quite limited.

For now we will continue to publish the Divine Encouragement page every other day and we will see what God Wills to do with the Private FYI&R and News Commentary pages after January 16th.

We will entertain any feedback from you (the ones who read less than 1% of viewed documents) regarding this situation and will act upon it in accordance to the Will of God.

As matter of interest we are reproducing below some Domain Statistics so that you may have a real feel as to what we are talking about.

From (Mrs.) RM @ Puerto Rico

Yesterday we celebrated the Epiphany of Our Lord, when He manifested Himself, through the Magi, to the World.

That is the same thing you are doing all year long with your work and love for the Lord: Showing His manifestation through every single incident/sign/word He selects.

Indeed, indeed, how could anyone say or act as if there were no God?

I pray to God that He guards you from harm/evil to the extent that His Will may allow.

RM

Published on January 6th, 2012 [ First Friday of the MonthThe Epiphany of The Lord and Joan of Arc's 600th Birthday]

In yesterday's Mass we read:
[our underscoring]

 11 For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. 12 Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous. 13 Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you. 14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. 15 Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.

 16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

 19 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: 20 If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22 and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24 The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. [1 John 3:11-24]


miguel de Portugal comments: Think about the above. Think real hard about it.

How many people do you know who truly measure up to Jesus' words through John? How well do each one of us measure up to them? Remember, when the veil is crossed, it is just too late to "start living right". There is no second chance. There is no reincarnation (1). If one is fortunate, one lands in purgatory - which, regardless of the incessant babble from the Vatican - is very real. Very real. Yes, and that I know too.

Do not forget the 20 million soldiers who died of Spanish flu - an epidemic that God allowed to end World War I since that was the only way He could without violating our free will and minimize the world suffering while giving it another chance.

Do not forget the 50 - 100 million deaths that He also allowed because the Administration refused (2) to follow the very simple remedial procedures God gave though Mary in Fatima, thus, wasting he "another chance" given.

Let us not forget the related message Jesus left almost 2000 years ago:

Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them - do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? [Luke 13:4]

Let's quit the bickering and love one another. Let's quit giving lip service to Christianity and strive every moment of our lives to live it. An atheist has a better chance of Salvation than one who just pretends to be a Christian. The first one offends God much less than the second one.

Published on January 5th, 2012 [Eve of the Epiphany of The Lord] (1)

We wish to remind our select readers about what.... we published two years ago:

Title of Document: Opus Dei In US Government (2)

Which contains the following paragraph:
[highlights added]

John Allen, author of a friendly book on Opus Dei, was told that Scalia is not a member, despite rumors to the contrary. (4)  Scalia attends St. Catherine of Siena Church in Falls Church, Virginia, St. Catherine's has a strong Opus Dei presence, complete with Sunday morning Latin Mass. It is the Washington, DC parish for many Opus Dei members and cooperators, such as former Senator Rick Santorum. … Furthermore, his aforementioned son Paul has been reported, to be a priest in the Order of the Holy Cross Opus Dei's priestly order as well as being affiliated with Fr. Frank Pavone's Priests for Life. 


Just a reminder.....
___________________
(1) In 2012,This Solemnity falls on Sunday, January 8. The Epiphany is not a Holyday of Obligation in the United States, and so always falls on the Sunday between January 2 and 8 instead of January 6 (UNLYC, no. 37). The Mass and Office are both proper, and with the introduction of the Roman Missal, Third Edition, a new proper Vigil Mass for the Epiphany will be celebrated for the first time.

Have you heard that..... the new Hungarian constitution, which protects life from the moment of conception, bans same-sex marriage, will also have an impact upon religious freedom? (1)

Writing in The New York Times, Kim Lane Scheppele, director of the Program in Law and Public Affairs at Princeton University, says that the new constitution, which took effect on January 1, discriminates against Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and several Protestant denominations, as well as against many Catholic religious orders.

Scheppele writes:

What does the law on churches do? It creates 14 state-recognized religions, and decertifies the rest. On January 1, over 300 denominations lose their official status in Hungary - including their tax exemptions and their abilities to run state-funded schools.

While most of the denominations are tiny, many are not. Among the religions that will no longer be able to operate with state approval are all versions of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Baha’i, as well as many smaller Catholic orders including the Benedictines, Marists, Carmelites and Opus Dei, and a number of major Protestant denominations including Episcopalians, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Mormons, Methodists, and all but one of the evangelical churches. One each of the orthodox, conservative and liberal Jewish synagogues are recognized; but all other Jewish congregations are not.

miguel de Portugal comments: Although it sounds like some religious groups have been banned, that is not the case. What it really means is that they lose their official status in Hungary - including their tax exemptions and their abilities to run state funded schools. Considering the record of many of the banned groups, we are glad to see that.

We must applaud their courage to officially state that life exists at the moment of conception - an absolute truth which includes the reality of a Guardian Angel for the new creature.

We also applaud their courage to outright ban same-sex marriage. "Marriage" is a Biblical institution and, by such definition, there cannot be a same-sex marriage. We do not know their position regarding the civil union of members of the same sex, but we hope that it is allowed.

From miguel de Portugal

Yesterday's Mass readings were 1 John 2:22-28 and John 1:19-28 and, as promised, we will address two key issues in these readings. First, let us take a look at the Gospel where John the Baptist categorically denies that he is Elias. To wit:

 [21] And they asked him: What then? Art thou Elias? And he said: I am not.

But we all know that Jesus, just as categorically, stated that John was Elias:

For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John: And if you will receive it, he is Elias that is to come.  He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.  [Matthew 11:13-15]

which is further confirmed by Mark:

But I say to you, that Elias also is come, (and they have done to him whatsoever they would,) as it is written of him. [Mark 9:12]

Jesus knew, but John did not know. John did not need to know. All he needed to know what he was supposed to do, and that, he had very clear:

[John 1:23] He said: I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaias.

and

[John 1:26] John answered them, saying: I baptize with water; but there hath stood one in the midst of you, whom you know not.

And that, brethren, is like God works. There is a real possibility that John died before he even became aware that he was fulfilling the prophecy of Elias for the First Coming. In certain cases our humanity simply cannot assimilate such awareness all at once. Jonas is a good example of that inability. God knows our hearts and He will reveal as much as we can assimilate at any given time, and at the rate that we are able to assimilate it.

 It is not important at all to know what position we may occupy in God's plan of Salvation. What is important is that we have very clear what we must do, and then do it! Those who have ears will hear; as for the rest?, it truly is not of our business. We are not the Christ!

Which brings us to the first reading - 1 John 2:22-23. In it we read:

[22] Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son. [23] Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. He that confesseth the Son, hath the Father also.

To deny that Jesus is the Christ, the Son, does not mean to walk around wearing a T-shirt that reads: I am from the Antichrist team!

To deny that Jesus is the Christ, which in turns denies the Father is: Not to strive to live by, and uphold, by word and deed, the messages and teachings that the Father delivered through His Son, even though they may be paying lip service to Christianity. This is why John clearly warned:

...as you have heard that Antichrist cometh, even now there are become many antichrists: whereby we know that it is the last hour. [19] They went out from us, but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt have remained with us; but that they may be manifest, that they are not all of us. [John 2:18-19]

If that was the state of affairs when John wrote the above during the 1st century, imagine what happened when the Christianity went Imperial - they multiplied as the proverbial rabbits do, and have mostly controlled the Administration since the 4th century. They could not fit the definition "Not to strive to live by, and uphold, by word and deed the messages and teachings that the Father delivered through His Son, even though they may be paying lip service to Christianity." any better.

From (Mr.) TK @ US

The source for your Divine Encouragement page has bothered me for some time.  I find the messages very helpful, but I often wonder how you have obtained them and why you beleive they are authentic enough to post them.

Why do you put your trust in the source for these messages?  There are, and have been, so many sources for messages from God/Mary over the years that I am just wondering why this source.

You clearly state in a footnote on the Divine Encouragement page that you know these messages to be true and are from Jesus, although you also state that miguel de Portugal is not the original transmission instrument for them. 

Was this revealed to you or is it a matter of your strong faith?

Sorry for my questioning but, as I said, it's been bothering me for awhile.

May God continue to Bless you everyday through Mary's Immaculate Heart!

TK

A.
The answer is quite simple: When I read something that I already know from God on direct, it could have very well been written by a six year old using a crayon on a tissue paper, because that is not important.

When I read Sister Faustina Diary, I already knew what Jesus was revealing to her - and that was over 20 years ago! Actually, that Diary was key in confirming to me that I was not imagining what I already knew otherwise.

Two years later, God, in a very clear way,  led me to read the writings of Gertrude even though I had never even heard of her before.

The impact was even more profound than with Faustina's Diary. I was shaken to my very core as I read what I knew in even greater detail. So much so that I called my then Spiritual Director in tears.

If you wish, we take this one step further: In the very early stages after my conversion, I would find information in the Bible about which I was quite conversant already. I became aware of this because I would engage in theological discussions wherein I would categorically state that whatever I was defending/upholding was in the Holy Scriptures - even if I had not a clue as to where. (Upon a Google-less search, I always found it.)

Why we do not reveal the original source?  There are several reasons which will remain unsaid as God has Willed from the beginning.

Frankly, we are surprised and disappointed with your statement "If so, why do you put your trust in the source for these messages?  There are and have been so many sources for messages from God/Mary over the years I am just wondering why this source."

If after all these years you have to ask us such questions, you do not believe where we are coming from nor the position God has called m de P to occupy now, thus you may be wasting your time reading our pages and suggest that you move on.

If you would have asked: What is the source? or How did you come across the textual information? or On what century were those revelations made to the original instrument(s)? They would have been logical questions from anyone - including a reader that may have been with us for ten years! But to ask "....why do you put your trust in the source for these messages?"......


Have you heard that..... God continues to allow earthquakes upon earthquakes (1) to rattle Christchurch in New Zealand?

As we have said before: It is not that the people of Christchurch are worse than the rest of the people of the world. It is because the city is named CHRISTCHURCH and He is announcing, and we are echoing through our pages, what will come upon Christ's Church (2) - that is, upon all of Christianity.

Published on January 1st, 2012 [Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God]

From Our Lord Jesus Christ

I stand between the past and the future. The Light of My Presence is flung across the future to come - the radiance of the Sun of Righteousness.

Backward, over the past, is My shadow thrown, hiding trouble and sorrow and disappointment.

Dwell not on the past - only on the present. Only use the past as the trees use My Sunlight to absorb it, to make use from it in preparation for a better future with Me. So store only the lessons learned and the blessings from Me, the Light of the World. Be encouraged by this thought.

Bury every fear of the future, of poverty for those dear to you, of suffering, of loss.

Bury all thought of unkindness and bitterness, all your dislikes, your resentments, your sense of failure, your disappointment in others and in yourselves, your gloom, your despondency, and let us leave them all, buried, and go forward to a new and risen life.

Remember that you must not see as the world sees. I hold the year in My Hands - in trust for you. But I shall guide you one day at a time.

Leave the rest with Me. You must not anticipate My gift with fears about the days ahead.... ...as for each day I shall supply the necessary wisdom and the strength.


miguel de Portugal comments: May the above message of Love and Hope encourage us to navigate through the year 2012 in accordance to the Will of God, and not ours.
