In Fatima, the Virgin Mary said.... "In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved;..." and this is how that Faith is holding up in the year 2011.

October 13, 2011, Anniversary Pilgrimage at Fatima
Statistics Reported by the Sanctuary of Fatima (1)

October 12-13, 2011

The Archbishop of Moscow Presided Over the Anniversary Pilgrimage

143 organized groups of pilgrims were registered with the Pilgrim Services Office as participants of the Rosary and Mass for the October 13th Anniversary Pilgrimage.

The breakdown of groups by country follows:

13 groups from Portugal; 10 from Germany; 1 from Australia, from Austria, 2 from Belgium; 2 from Brazil, 1 from South Korea; 2 from the Ivory Coast, 1 from "Unknown"; 5 from Spain; 11 from the US; 2 from the Russian Federation; 2 from the Philippines; 10 from France; 1 from Gambia; 1 from Gibraltar; 1 from Guadeloupe; 1 from Haiti; 6 from Ireland; 42 from Italy; 1 from Malaysia; 1 from Martinique; 1 from Mexico; 1 from Nigeria; 6 from Poland; 7 from Great Britain; 2 from Reunion Island (FR); 1 from Senegal; 2 from Singapore; 5 from Switzerland; 1 from Trinidad and Tobago; 2 from Vietnam.

The International Mass was officiated by 105 priests and 15 Bishops - including the presiding Archbishop. 85,000 Pilgrims participated.

283 individuals suffering from some health issue were admitted to the Blessings of the Sick ceremony.
260 individuals required help at the Sanctuary First Aid post.
278 individuals were admitted to the Sanctuary feet washing facility (for walking Pilgrims).

3,051 Sacraments of Reconciliation were administered.

miguel de Portugal comments: On the October 12th Portuguese news it was reported (and viewed on camera) that the huge esplanade before the Fatima Basilica and the Chapel of the Apparitions was almost empty. That "void" would have been strange even for a regular weekday in October – and October 12 was a special day: the Feast of Our Lady of the Pillar (much venerated in Spain), and the day before the traditional Pilgrimage day of October 13. The almost-deserted plaza was an eerie sight, especially for anyone somewhat familiar with Fatima.

The newscaster also reported on the walking Pilgrimages to Fatima, which are traditionally very, very popular in Portugal. They were at an all-time low. Additionally, the usual Pilgrim Support groups along the way were nowhere to be found by most of the few pilgrims who were walking to Fatima.

On the 13th, we hoped to see news about Fatima in the regular Portuguese TV newscasts, as has been customary. If it was mentioned, it must have been in passing and at high speed, since we missed it.

We then went to the official Sanctuary of Fatima Portal hoping to find out what happened. It was at the official Fatima Portal where we obtained the sad statistics reported above. There was not even one Cardinal amongst the celebrants, nor were there the 150,000 to 350,000 pilgrims that should have been present on a day like October 13th!

The numbers speak for themselves, even for those who have never been in Fatima. This bleak picture is made even worse when one considers the gravity of the economic crisis Portugal is experiencing right now. Traditionally, in a situation like this, the number of Pilgrims actually increases as they seek help and consolation from our Beloved Mother and Our Lord.

"...when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" [Luke 18:8]

And we thought things were really bad in the year 2004 (2).

May those who have Eyes, See and Ears, Hear!

Is this the only option.... left to God by His stiff-necked [Deut. 31:27] children?

A Gamma Ray Burst  - All its consequences seem to fulfill most prophetic requirements.


From (Mr.) WO @ US

The foiled alleged terrorist plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the US in Washington, DC - in my opinion - has the "scent of Opus Dei" all over it. (1)

That US intelligence community informants were operating within the Mexican drug gang, which was hired to perform the assassination, serves to (in my view) reinforce this.

Given the strong 'interest' of both China and Russia in Iran, plus the much openly speculated (by media pundits) possible military reprisal of the US upon Iran, this seems to be another example of 'intentionally letting the pot boil over'.

Bearing this in mind...... IF the US does make a military reprisal upon Iran, the scene depicted in this movie trailer (2) may be a prophetic one.
....or, if you prefer, the scene in this other movie trailer. (3)

May God help us all!

WO

A.
Thank you for sharing your views with us.

Considering the infiltration level of Opus Dei personnel in our Intelligence Community, (4) as well as in our Judiciary (5) - just about anything is possible in order for them to gain the control of the world they have planned for (6).

In any case, all that was announced in our 1993 document about the establishment of the One World Order (7):

The Steps are simple. We will keep them general so as to accommodate the corrections of course that the "saviors of the world" may deem necessary as the plan is implemented. 

Step 1: The whole world, country by country is brought into great turmoil. Propitiated by political, financial, ethnic or religious confrontations or whatever is the best means in each country to achieve the desired purpose: Generalized chaos.

In Summary: "Bring the world up to its boiling point". 

Step 2: A nuclear conflagration will be started through one of the many dangerously unstable nations throughout the world. The nation to be used as the "trigger" will be changed many times before the non stoppable chain reaction commences.

Step 3: This will lead to complete global chaos - wars, revolutions, financial collapses, religious upheavals and persecutions with the intent of an eventual world wide domination by the humanist ideology spawned by Russia since the 19th century.

  In essence, Step 3 sets the stage for the eventual manifestation of the False Christ (8). The remaining fast-moving Steps may be better understood by prayerfully reviewing Biblical Texts which describe The General Sequence of Events Leading to the End of These Times. (9)


Is  being fulfilled like clockwork, and the remainder will until the bitter end.

From (Mr.) WS @ US

The Donation of Constantine (1) aberration aside...

Pepin the Short was recognized by Pope Zachary as the King of the Franks in March of 752 AD.  Pope Zachary said that Pepin, the Mayor of the Palace and the father of Charlemagne, was by his power de facto king, even though he was not de jure king.

The final insult to the last Merovingian king Childeric III was having his head publicly shorn and being sent off to a monastery to live out his days. By this act the Pope established that he was a king maker with temporal power.

In fact, the Pope said that the Carolingian dynasty should rule forever, and that anyone who disapproved was to be excommunicated.  In return, Pepin gave the papacy land in Italy which would become the Papal States.

Despite the fact that Pope Pius IX lost the Papal States in the Nineteenth Century, Pope Pius XI was  given the Vatican by Mussolini in 1929 under the Lateran Treaty. Thus, popes have had some sort of temporal power since 752 AD.  2012 will be the 1260th year of temporal papal power.

It is constructive to note that in proclaiming Pepin as King of the Franks, Pepin and Pope Zachary were breaking the Salic Law of the Franks and perpetrating a Big Lie.

And who is the father of lies?

If this could be done, why didn't a future pope give Henry VIII a divorce?  By 2012 we will have had the present resident on the papal throne for 7 years. 

WS

A. That is what most of the Church Administrators have done for millennia - Perpetrating Big Lies. Thanks be to God that in spite of them, the pristine and invaluable Catholic Faith (2) has reached God's children when it is most needed: Right Now! This is a perfect example of "Even satan must serve God!"

Thank you for sharing your theo-logic with us.

We pray to the Lord.... (1)

O Lord, Lord, Almighty King, for all things are in Thy power, and there is none that can resist Thy Will, if Thou determine to save Thy Elect. Thou hast made Heaven and Earth, and all things that are under the cope of Heaven.

Thou art Lord of all, and there is none that can resist Thy majesty. Thou knowest all things, and Thou knowest that it was not out of pride and contempt, or any desire of glory, that I refused to worship any man, for I would willingly and readily, for the salvation of Thy Elect, have kissed even the steps of his feet. But I feared lest I should transfer the Honour of my God to a man, and lest I should adore any one except my God. And now, O Lord, O King, O God of Abraham, have mercy on Thy Elect, because our enemies resolve to destroy us, and extinguish Thy true inheritance.

Despise not Thy portion, which Thou hast redeemed for Thyself through the sacrifice of Thy Only Son. Hear my supplication, and be merciful to Thy lot and inheritance, and turn our mourning into joy, that we may live and praise Thy Name, O Lord, and shut not the mouths of them that sing to Thee.

In case that you have not heard yet.... a volcano erupted over a mile below the ocean's surface adjacent to the Spanish Canary Island of El Hierro on Monday. (1)

El Hierro, the southwestern most island in the Canary Island archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, had been experiencing tremors for the past three months. On Monday, the island, originally formed from volcanic activity, encountered another eruption deep in the ocean at 10.43 a.m. local time (05:43 EDT).

The mayor of El Hierro, David Cabrera, said in a radio interview that underwater activity was taking place and had been going on for several hours, the Web site IrishWeatherOnline.com reported.

The island, El Hierro, was issued a volcanic eruption alert on Sunday after approximately 10,000 tremors were felt over the past three months, The Associated Press reported. The alert also came after a 4.3 earthquake on Saturday, The AP reported.

Scientists were not sure whether the emissions were lava or gas, so they will continue with an analysis, a local official, María del Carmen Morales, told the Spanish daily La Opinión.

The eruption took place about three miles from El Hierro and about 1,500 feet deep, but the effects will not be felt, volcanologist Alicia Garcia of the Higher Council of Scientific Research said, Agence France-Presse reported. However, the Spanish newspaper El Pais reported that the eruption ocurred 2,000 meters below the ocean surface.

NASA held a news conference on September 29th.... to reveal near-Earth asteroid findings and implications for future research. The briefing took place in the NASA Headquarters' James E. Webb Auditorium, located in Washington. (1)

The event was aired live on NASA Television and the agency's website. We asked our collaborator in Puerto Rico, Mrs. RM, to view it and give us her feedback so that we could share it with our readers. Her feedback follows [our underscoring]:

At the beginning they were having transmission problems. It was not possible to hear the presentation of the first panelist, Lindley Johnson.
 
Here is what they said between the lines:
 
1) The population of near-earth asteroids bigger than 1 km in diameter (those capable of producing catastrophic devastation, such as the one that presumably extinguished the dinosaurs) is believed by NEOWISE to be fewer than previously estimated. Now they think that this population is 981 asteroids. The panelist also said that 93% of these are asteroids already found by WISE, meaning that 7% has not been found.
 
2) Near-earth asteroids of middle-size diameter (100 m - 1 km)  are fewer in number than originally estimated. The original estimated count of these asteroids was 36,000. Now it is estimated to be 19,500 asteroids. (This is the amount mentioned by the panelist. The documents in the NASA/WISE page have a different amount). But the majority of these have not yet been discovered. The third panelist mentioned that NEOWISE only has found 25% of the existing asteroids, meaning that the 75% are waiting to be discovered.

One of the questions made by telephone asked for the level of damage that a middle size asteroid could cause. The answer was: Because of the speed they have, a lot of energy would be dissipated in an instant. Therefore, a wide area will be damaged. If the impact is in a metropolitan area, it could devastate the entire area (the example used was Washington DC).

3) The answer to another question was that WISE had found 100 new brown dwarfs (cool stars). Some are close but not hazardous. The panelist admitted that they have a huge amount of data waiting for being processed. WISE is now at hibernation mode. What remains is the processing of the data.
 
4) 500 asteroids larger than 100 meters are found per year. They admitted that some decades will be needed for the entire population to be discovered.

The M+G+R Foundation comments: Don't you feel safer now??? Like most of those "cutting edge" projects, this one only helps to keep unemployment level lower than it would be if they ceased most of this worthless research. We are not impressed.

From (Mr.) BH @ Philippines


Thank you for your prayers and the kind words of encouragement, as we lived through another typhoon in the Philippines.

My family and I were not seriously affected by typhoon Pedring, except for a 3-hour brown-out (in the early hours of the typhoon).

We (my family and I) continue to praise and  thank God for the continued protection. However, in other (most) areas (especially in the depressed areas), they are seriously affected as reported in the local news.

What is sad, is the fact that we (most people... including me in some extent) are still in denial that we are living the end times.

Anyway, we badly need your continued prayers.

Thanks again and may God continued to use you as His instrument.

Yours always in Christ,

BH

A. We are pleased to hear that you and your family (as well as other of our dear friends in the Philippines) escaped with little damage. We pray that whatever reason God allowed yet another major typhoon in the Philippines is fulfilled, and that the suffering is not wasted (as it usually is everywhere in the world).

It is indeed sad that denial (1) (2) - full or partial - reigns supreme. In a document to be published soon, all will learn about the horrific, and only, option that we have left God.

From (Mrs.) RMA @ Northern Ireland

Regarding your posting and mailing of October 7th about the Three Days of Darkness...

Should I e-mail people this letter, or should I just tell them?  I have only fewer than a dozen email addresses, but I could print out pages and give them.

I rarely leave the house now - except for medical reasons- so I do not have many contacts. I don't want to be presumptuous in thinking it matters to God what I do, but I want to be right.

If you have time, could you tell me more clearly what to do? Should I telephone people and get e-mail addresses, or just wait for opportunities to arise?

I could print out and post some of it. What would be right? I already told one person (who knew already about Garabandal etc.) I hope that's okay.
 
That's all for now. I don't know what to say about these warnings - it's all so terrifying.

RMA

A.
It does matter to God what you do; otherwise, you would not have been privy to this information.

We would suggest that you e-mail the information to those who are in your list; tell them that, if the Holy Spirit of God moves them, they should share the e-mail with others.

If you also are moved to print some of the documents and share them with others, that is fine too. In that way you are paving the way for the next three related documents that will come out. These documents will provide greater details.

Another positive aspect of sharing this information, besides the spiritual benefit, is that, for the first time, we will be able to make concrete, as opposed to generalized, recommendations to our readers for their physical protection. That information will be in the third future document.

It is our responsibility to share with others, in a calm manner, what is almost upon us. It is their responsibility to act upon the information in accordance to the Will of God.


Regarding the omissions.... in the Roman Catholic Lectionary from the Biblical Texts, today we shall review what was omitted from the Book of Matthew from Chapter 26.

Chapter 26 verses 1-13, 28-65, 67-75 have been omitted from the Mass readings.

[1] And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended all these words, he said to his disciples: [2] You know that after two days shall be the pasch, and the son of man shall be delivered up to be crucified: [3] Then were gathered together the chief priests and ancients of the people into the court of the high priest, who was called Caiphas: [4] And they consulted together, that by subtilty they might apprehend Jesus, and put him to death. [5] But they said: Not on the festival day, lest perhaps there should be a tumult among the people.

[6] And when Jesus was in Bethania, in the house of Simon the leper, [7] There came to him a woman having an alabaster box of precious ointment, and poured it on his head as he was at table. [8] And the disciples seeing it, had indignation, saying: To what purpose is this waste? [9] For this might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. [10] And Jesus knowing it, said to them: Why do you trouble this woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. [11] For the poor you have always with you: but me you have not always. [12] For she in pouring this ointment upon my body, hath done it for my burial. [13] Amen I say to you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which she hath done, shall be told for a memory of her. 

[28] For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins. [29] And I say to you, I will not drink from henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I shall drink it with you new in the kingdom of my Father. [30] And a hymn being said, they went out unto mount Olivet.

[31] Then Jesus said to them: All you shall be scandalized in me this night. For it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be dispersed. [32] But after I shall be risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. [33] And Peter answering, said to him: Although all shall be scandalized in thee, I will never be scandalized. [34] Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, that in this night before the cock crow, thou wilt deny me thrice. [35] Peter saith to him: Yea, though I should die with thee, I will not deny thee. And in like manner said all the disciples.

[36] Then Jesus came with them into a country place which is called Gethsemani; and he said to his disciples: Sit you here, till I go yonder and pray. [37] And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to grow sorrowful and to be sad. [38] Then he saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death: stay you here, and watch with me. [39] And going a little further, 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. [40] And he cometh to his disciples, and findeth them asleep, and he saith to Peter: What? Could you not watch one hour with me? [41] Watch ye, and pray that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh weak. [42] Again the second time, he went and prayed, saying: My Father, if this chalice may not pass away, but I must drink it, thy will be done. [43] And he cometh again and findeth them sleeping: for their eyes were heavy. [44] And leaving them, he went again: and he prayed the third time, saying the selfsame word. [45] Then he cometh to his disciples, and saith to them: Sleep ye now and take your rest; behold the hour is at hand, and the Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners. [46] Rise, let us go: behold he is at hand that will betray me.

[47]
As he yet spoke, behold Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the ancients of the people. [48] And he that betrayed him, gave them a sign, saying: Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he, hold him fast. [49] And forthwith coming to Jesus, he said: Hail, Rabbi. And he kissed him. [50] And Jesus said to him: Friend, whereto art thou come? Then they came up, and laid hands on Jesus, and held him. [51] And behold one of them that were with Jesus, stretching forth his hand, drew out his sword: and striking the servant of the high priest, cut off his ear. [52] Then Jesus saith to him: Put up again thy sword into its place: for all that take the sword shall perish with the sword. [53] Thinkest thou that I cannot ask my Father, and he will give me presently more than twelve legions of angels? [54] How then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that so it must be done? [55] In that same hour Jesus said to the multitudes: You are come out as it were to a robber with swords and clubs to apprehend me. I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple, and you laid not hands on me. [56] Now all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then the disciples all leaving him, fled.

[57] But they holding Jesus led him to Caiphas the high priest, where the scribes and the ancients were assembled. [58] And Peter followed him afar off, even to the court of the high priest. And going in, he sat with the servants, that he might see the end. [59] And the chief priests and the whole council sought false witness against Jesus, that they might put him to death: [60] And they found not, whereas many false witnesses had come in. And last of all there came two false witnesses: [61] And they said: This man said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and after three days to rebuild it. [62] And the high priest rising up, said to him: Answerest thou nothing to the things which these witness against thee? [63] But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest said to him: I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us if thou be the Christ the Son of God. [64] Jesus saith to him: Thou hast said it. Nevertheless I say to you, hereafter you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of the power of God, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

[65] Then the high priests rent his garments, saying: He hath blasphemed; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard the blasphemy: 

[67] Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him: and others struck his face with the palms of their hands, [68] Saying: Prophesy unto us, O Christ, who is he that struck thee? [69] But Peter sat without in the court: and there came to him a servant maid, saying: Thou also wast with Jesus the Galilean. [70] But he denied before them all, saying: I know not what thou sayest. [71] And as he went out of the gate, another maid saw him, and she saith to them that were there: This man also was with Jesus of Nazareth. [72] And again he denied with an oath, I know not the man. [73] And after a little while they came that stood by, and said to Peter: Surely thou also art one of them; for even thy speech doth discover thee. [74] Then he began to curse and to swear that he knew not the man. And immediately the cock crew. [75] And Peter remembered the word of Jesus which he had said: Before the cock crow, thou wilt deny me thrice. And going forth, he wept bitterly.

We have published a new document about...



and...

 We recommend our readers to review the updated Three Days of Darkness document that we have had on-line since the year 2000.

as well as ......

The edited version of the document where we speak about the Warning announced through Garabandal.


These documents and updates are critical and their contents should be carefully reviewed before we can issue the clarification given to miguel de Portugal by God regarding the Warning-Chastisement combination.

May God have Mercy on His Elect!



Published on October 2nd, 2011 [Feast of the Guardian Angels]

Please be advised that.... subject to the Will of God, we will not update this page for the next seven to ten days. The backlog of much more important work has reached a critical level, and we must tend to it without delay.

The Divine Encouragement will continue to be published every other day, as we have done in the recent past. Correspondence will be reviewed as time allows, and acted upon as needed, and dictated by the Will of God.

Should there be something of great importance that needs to be communicated to our Private Readership, it will be done via e-mail.

and....

One last reminder before.... signing off.

When Isaiah said what you may hear in today's Mass, he was speaking to the last cut of The Elect (1) before Jesus Christ. His exact same words - which follow - fully apply to us right now. Make it known to one and all - that is your responsibility. Ours is to call it to your attention.

I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My loved one had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit.

“Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it? When I looked for good grapes, why did it yield only bad? 5 Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed; I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled. 6 I will make it a wasteland, neither pruned nor cultivated, and briers and thorns will grow there. I will command the clouds not to rain on it.”

The vineyard of the LORD Almighty is the nation of Israel, and the people of Judah are the vines he delighted in. And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress. [Is. 5:1-7]

Let us try to....
unravel the "Enochs" that appear in the Holy Scriptures. Between the fact that every Biblical Translator feels entitled to spell Biblical names as they see fit, and that Bible Study in the Catholic Church has yet to become a popular devotion, only God knows Who is Who in the Holy Scriptures!

We have used the English version of the Douay-Rheims Bible, the Dr. Straubinger's New Testament translation and The Tanakh - the Hebrew Scriptures.

The confusion exists because there are three individuals who have the same or similar names.

1. The "key" Enoch - the one known as "The 7th from Adam" . His lineage is as follows: Adam > Seth > Enosh > Kenan > Mahalalel > Jared > Enoch > Methuselah > Lamech > Noah. (We have utilized the spelling used in the Hebrew Scriptures - we figured that they should know better than St. Jerome.)

It is Enoch who "walked with God" [Gen. 5:24]; he is the one who "God took him" at the end of his life on Earth. Enoch did not die as we know death.

2. Enosh, the son of Seth [Gen. 4:26] is also spelled as Enos.

3. Ruben, the firstborn of Israel, named his son "Enoch" [Gen. 46:9], which has also been spelled as "Hanoch".

The Enoch we read about in the New Testament [Luke 3:37, Hebrews 11:5 and Jude 1:14] refers to "Enoch, the Seventh from Adam," the one who "walked with God" and whom "God took" at the end of his life on Earth.

We pray that this clarification has been - or, better yet - will be of help to those who seek the Light.


You may read several times... in our pages that we must thank God for all that He allows to happen to us, for it is always for our own good as viewed from the Divine Perspective (the only worthwhile perspective). We have come across a news report which could not illustrate this better:

One month after a knee to the groin left him writhing on the ground pounding the gym floor in agony last October, Taylor Statham did something perhaps no other man has ever done in a similar situation. He approached the guy who delivered the blow, shook his hand and thanked him.

Attempting to draw a charge on prep school teammate Dushon Carter may have seemed like a regrettable choice by Statham the day it happened, but the shot below the belt he endured in the collision eventually turned out to be an unlikely blessing. Had the soreness and swelling in his groin not lingered the next few weeks, Statham probably wouldn't have visited a doctor in time to save his life.

Doctors diagnosed Statham with a particularly aggressive form of malignant testicular cancer last November, shocking news for an otherwise healthy 18-year-old with no history of the disease in his family.  (1)

The M+G+R Foundation comments: We are sure that someone may ask - Couldn't God use a less painful method to alert the boy's parents to his grave illness? We are sure that He did, and was ignored - in which case He just increased the volume of the megaphone (2) a notch or two to ensure that the situation would  be resolved.

Moral of the story: Without becoming obsessive or fanatical, let us try to stay in tune with God 24/7. This will save us much grief in all aspects of our lives.

Nancy Thayer (1) says... "The universe is always speaking to us. ... Sending us little messages, causing coincidences and serendipities, reminding us to stop, to look around, to believe in something else, something bigger."

miguel de Portugal comments: Why is it so hard to these people to give credit to God? They would rather give credit to anything but to the One Unique Cause for all. That, of course, was a rhetorical question, since we all know why some people think this way. This disordered thinking explains Thayer’s immense popularity in the world (1).

Did you know that..... Abraham, of  "Father of Faith" fame is more the "Father of Obedience", and that his act of total obedience to God [Gen. 22] is what opened the doors so that God would send His Only Son, thousands of years later, and allow Jesus Christ to give us an opportunity to return to the status humans had before the all in Paradise?

Let us remember that after the cataclysm we call Noah's Flood, the choosing of Abraham by God (while he still lived in Ur) became the beginning of our redemption from the fall.

We really owe Abraham much more because of his total obedience to God than for his faith. As far as faith goes, Abraham initially showed more faith in Sarai, his wife, than in God.

Once again we remind one and all that: (a) In Abraham's time human sacrifice was not unusual; and (b) God had not yet spelled out "Thou shalt not kill" though Moses. After Moses, anyone claiming to hear God ordering the offer of any human being as a sacrifice, or ordering to kill someone in His Name, is hearing satan and not God.
