the recent document "A Sexually Abused Victim Speaks Out" (1), Mrs. IW wrote: I have yet to completely forgive my
grandfather for what he did,
even after all these years. But forgive him I must. Jesus and His
Mother are helping me with this as well. On my own, I can't do it.
Our response/comment to her regarding her statements follows:
Regarding the forgiving of your
grandfather - consider the following.
Using the "Filter concept" illustrated in our document The Spiritual World
and How It Influences Our Behavior
, visualize that one of your
Filters was occupied by - literally - a demonic entity; a demonic
was projected/released when he drank. Only God knows what kind
of wound his own soul suffered to host that kind of spiritual monster.
Therefore, that monster was not your grandfather. The soul of your
grandfather was overpowered by that demonic entity to harm whatever
soul it could. Obviously you are a very special soul to God, otherwise
satan would no have wasted time in harming you as much as he could,
since he cannot change the
final destination of your soul
In spite of all, you clung to Jesus and Mary, not rejecting them as
those who say "Where was God when....?
In reality - your life
experience has been a Job-like experience and now you must focus on,
draw hope and consolation from, how
well all worked out for Job at the end.
Believe it or not - your true (the core individual) grandfather - was a

Not to make light of a horrific situation, but to illustrate the point
clearly: Flip Wilson's Geraldine's excuse of "The devil made me do
" never ever works
before the Throne of Justice. We are
always accountable for what our body-soul system does
. So if a
grievously offensive soul is destined to heaven, we must make every
effort to shorten the
lengthy Purgatorial sentence due to him/her.
Just think if the soul of your grandfather is indeed in Purgatory -
serving a very lengthy sentence - with the punishment
(purification process) being witnessing the horrific harm his body-soul
system caused to his loved ones. Only hell would be a more painful

you for your document (1)
that begs the question of whether you are being too pessimistic, or
just lovingly realistic.
As per usual it is spot on (of course it is) and puts together in one
document, what is true, and as the saying goes: "The Truth hurts"
but so be it, if that is required, and it most certainly is.
The examples are everywhere we look and all around us, and yet we are
told that all is good, and that Pope Francis is bringing multitudes
back to the church in droves... I might add, for all of the wrong
reasons. It conjures for me the image of the Pied Piper.
And now this charade requiring the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, to
come to him, rather than he to her, for this "consecration of the
I wonder what do you think about the prospects for world peace where
peace between Islam and Christianity is not possible, despite efforts
to invent "Chrislam"... ugh.
Have you read the New Fatima Priest article that outlines the efforts
to prevent the third secret of Fatima from being given to the world by
the puppet masters in Rome, Sodano and Bertone?
Again, thank you for this document.
God Bless You,
A. Thank you for your
kind words of support and the opportunity to address a few items
Your statement: "...we are told that all is good, and
that Pope Francis is bringing multitudes back to the church in
droves... I might add, for all of the wrong reasons. It conjures for me
the image of the Pied Piper. " could not be more accurate since
it reflects "the plan".
Regarding the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary - Francis'
current plans - and the reference you make about the New Fatima Priest:
We can combine both into one set of comments.
First of all, the "Fatima Priest" is very well known to us - is a
Canadian priest by the name of Nicholas Gruner. Not only well
known to us
but we dealt with him in the early nineties. That is why some of our
documents have a note at the top stating: The M+G+R Foundation is in no way
connected to the ministries associated with Rev. Nicholas Gruner, the
Canadian priest, founder of The International Fatima Rosary Crusade,
publishers of The Fatima Crusader.
Gruner was well intentioned but misread the revealed messages of Fatima
and built his entire cash producing ministry on the fact that, if
Russia were to be Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, a
holocaust would be averted. We pointed out to him his error knowing
that he would not "change his tune", there was too much money and a
major ego at stake.
Quoting from our Fatima Summary document: (2)
Fátima also include right wing, “traditionalist” groups that
promote their own
version of the Fátima message, for monetary gain or to obtain
ministries associated with the Rev. Nicholas Gruner, the
Canadian priest who founded The International Fátima Rosary
Crusade, publishers of The Fatima Crusader.
self-appointed mission has been to
hound the Vatican to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
requested through the Fátima events. According to Gruner, this
prevent the nuclear holocaust that will otherwise take place. However,
the time frame for such consecration
lapsed many decades ago. (3)
efforts have been and remain futile;....
Regarding Francis' intentions to
Consecrate the World to the Immaculate Heart of Mary - It is no more
another photo-op. John Paul II made that Consecration in 1984. A
Consecration which Fatima's Lucia claimed that was accepted by Heaven -
something that we do not doubt - although, in regards to what was
requested in the 1917 - 1929 era, it made no difference, and neither
will be Francis' photo-op consecration exercise.
Regarding "...what do you think about the prospects
for world peace where peace between Islam and Christianity is not
possible, despite efforts to invent 'Chrislam'"...
Peace, as God has clearly showed to miguel de Portugal, is the result
of Justice. Man has proven to God that he is totally incapable of
attaining such system, even with His manifestation in the Person of
Jesus spelling out what would take to establish a reign of Justice.
Therefore, as we have stated before, the only option humanity has left
for God to establish such Reign of Justice is through a complete
"Reset of Creation"; a Reset which will be ushered by the climax of the
Whether there is a nuclear exchange or a mile wide meteorite hitting
Earth or not - it no longer
matters. Humanity, at large, has waived the opportunity those events
would provide to reduce its suffering as we sail into the final events
the Ends of These Times. All we now have available to us is, on an
basis, the reduction of our suffering almost on a case by case basis.
With reference to the claims of Gruner and the silencing of the third
part of the Secret of Fatima. That has been going on for decades.
We have amply covered the issues associated with the third part of the
Fatima in the following documents:
We trust that we have covered in full the issues that you raised, for
which we thank you.

Strange does not qualify enough the
fact that the
alleged "People's Pope", the "Pope of the Poor", and former Primate of
the Argentine Catholic Church, has remained at the margin of such
events. As a matter of fact, in the official Sanctuary page his name is not mentioned neither as
Cardinal nor as Pope and is not listed with the names of the Hierarchy

I have read a book authored by Fr.

I have NEVER heard a Catholic pastor, priest, deacon, teach or explain
I "kinda knew" what is was from my Protestant friends. I have read some
of the Books of the Old Testament, but what was happening was never
called Divine Law.
It would be nice if our priests could actually teach scripture so that
we could understand it as easily as I do when you explain it.
I REALLY appreciate all your hard work.
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement and are glad to see
that at least some of our readers are profiting from the Gifts God has

You have never heard "a Catholic
pastor, priest, deacon, teach

one must have a working
understanding of it and not a parrot like
understanding of it.
You state: "I have read
some of the Books of the Old Testament, but what was happening was
never called Divine Law."
Isn't it interesting that Jesus was very explicit about why He was
walking amongst men almost 2000 years ago? He clearly stated:
not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not
come to destroy, but to fulfill.
For amen I say unto you,
till heaven and
earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all
But what can we
expect from those parrot-like "shepherds", who are no better than the
Masters of the time Jesus walked among men, when they can stand at the
pulpit and read the Gospel, which would had corresponded to today's
had it not been the Feast of St. Bartholomew, with a straight
face? We quote:
Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to his disciples,  Saying:
The scribes and the Pharisees have sitten on the chair of Moses. 
All things therefore whatsoever they shall say to you, observe and do:
but according to their works do ye not; for they say, and do not. 
For they bind heavy and insupportable burdens, and lay them on men' s
shoulders; but with a finger of their own they will not move them.  And all their works they do for to
be seen of men. For they make their phylacteries broad, and
enlarge their fringes.
 And they love the first places at
feasts, and the first chairs in the synagogues,  And salutations in the market
place, and to be called by men, Rabbi.  But be not you called Rabbi. For
one is your master; and all you are brethren.  And call none your father upon
earth; for one is your father, who is in heaven.  Neither be ye called masters; for
one is your master, Christ.
 He that is the
greatest among you shall be your servant.  And whosoever
shall exalt himself shall be humbled: and he that shall humble himself shall be
exalted.  But woe to you
scribes and Pharisees, 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]
His Name we have repeated the same while
calling said parrot-like
(with the appropriate exceptional
cases) every name that Jesus calls them for
to and about them. They are not worthy of anything else, other than
our sincere prayers which are assiduously offered daily for their
As a matter of fact, were it in
miguel's power, he would make the Purgatorial
sentence of each of those parrot-like
equal to the summation of the
purgatorial sentences of all the poor faithful who, without adequate

As a matter of fact - I invoke
Jesus' own Words - to justify the above
proposal to Heaven:
he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten
with few stripes. And unto whomsoever much is given, of him much shall
be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will
demand the more.
Now perhaps you may understand
better why miguel says that his greatest

Thank you for your "yes" to God. May God be praised forever.
With reference to your suggestion (on this page of August 17th) about
remaining focused while praying the Rosary...
Just wanted to share my own method to stay focused during the Rosary. I
simply modify the second part of the prayer to include the name of
those the Lord puts on my heart to pray for. For example:
Mary Mother of God, pray for my son
Aaron, now and at the hour of his death. Amen."
Blessings and peace to you!
A. Thank your kind words,
prayers and for an excellent suggestion!
We would like to make a recommendation so that you may reach far beyond
individual (in this case your son Aaron). For example:
Mary Mother of God, pray for my son
Aaron and all sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen."
With this small modification you are
not only focusing on one particular individual, but your prayer is
reaching all of those who have no one praying for them - which,
tragically, are many. This is so important to God that He has moved me
to include that group - those who
have no one praying for them - as a standing intention in every Mass offered.
TJ @ US
reference to your suggestion (on this page of August 17th) about
remaining focused while praying the Rosary...
"test-prayed" it tonight, and it was excellent. Later on, not
remembering your exact suggestions, I quickly settled on a pattern, and
working to remember the pattern worked wonders in keeping me thinking.
What I did was, with each decade, I prayed the ten Hail Marys thus:
Holy Mary, Mother of God
2. Holy Mary, Immaculate Daughter
of the Father
3. Holy Mary, Mother of God
4. Holy Mary, Spouse of the Holy
5. Holy Mary, Mother of God
6. Holy Mary, Mother of the Christ
7. Holy Mary, Mother of God
8. Holy Mary, Mother of Mercy
9. Holy Mary, Mother of God
10. Holy Mary, Queen of Heaven
I still invoke her as Mother of God five times, but intersperse
her role in Salvation history through the decade.
Blessings and thanks for the message.
A. It is a great
suggestion but that format leaves out four times Her greatest
Title-Honor: Mother of God, which could be
expressed in different forms as we suggested, such as
Mother of "our Saviour" , "the Son of the Father" , "the Messiah" together
with Her other Titles that you have listed.
A suggestion to have it both ways is:
Mary, Mother of God
Thank you for sharing with all of us your

are some very important questions that a Faithful may ask, yet
remain unanswered since the answer is not readily available. God has
indicated to me that we should make that information available
on this forum. Thus this post.
The two questions are: (a) How much should I pray; and (b) How do
Obviously a book, or several, could be written just on those two
questions if I were one of those "learned and prudent" wise men but,
being just God's gofer we will take care of it in a few lines and using
plain language and imagery.
(a) How much should a particular individual pray?
depends on the magnitude of the original sin that particular individual
was born with - the built in cross (1) - and all the other
that said individual picked up, or were imposed upon by third parties,
in his/her life.
Picked up crosses
result in wounds to the soul and, as we explained in our document about
the "filters" (2)
, those wounds can become "filter holders" for spiritual entities to
settle in and make the individual's life miserable.
The more we pray - formally and
informally - keeping God in
the forefront of our mind, the more those
uninvited spiritual guests occupying said "filters" will be neutralized
and eventually expelled.
Even if the sins that we may have
committed, sins which wounded our soul and resulted in some of those
"filter", have been forgiven, the spiritual scar remains. Although not
as susceptible to spiritual "infection" as those not healed yet, those
"scars" turned into "filters" can still be occupied by uninvited
In conclusion: The more wounds/scars our soul has, the greater the need
(b) How do prayers work?
will use a graphic method to explain, in human terms, how prayers work
our souls. Notice, we said: "prayers work in our souls". That means
that while you may be praying for the proverbial aunt Thecla and
securing benefits for her, that prayer is also working in your soul for
your own benefit.
Imagine that you are submerged in a vat of black ink. That
blackness is in contact with your skin and it serves as an insulator
allowing very little Divine influence to reach your soul.
Now imagine that, as you pray formally and informally, a
white liquid starts oozing out of your pores and the dark liquid in
contact with your skin starts to lighten up, until you could be
completely enveloped by that white liquid which will not allow the
darkness that surrounds you touch your skin.
The lighter that liquid in contact with your skin becomes
the better your contact with God and vice versa. This improved
communication, in turn, starts neutralizing
those uninvited spiritual guests occupying the "filters" described in
part (a) above, thus your
personal benefit for praying on behalf of the proverbial aunt
Thecla is great.
In conclusion... the more wounds and/or scars our soul has the more
time we should spend in formal and informal prayer. There really are no
shortcut methods for this that I am aware of.
We have just prepared a brief document - God Does Not
Punish : We
Freely Choose That Disgraces Fall Upon Us - which, together with

My situation in a broader sense is very interesting right now.
My wife has had an offer to relocate us to the West Coast, where there

outcome most compatible with His will.
A. The above letter was
more of a personal note than a letter to publish. However, knowing Mr.
IW well we know that he will not mind that we publish it since it could
have been written
by any male that resides in the US, who is married and is currently
unemployed - probably over 100 million individuals would fit said
Why publish the letter then? We publish it because it is a text book example
about how to let God lead the way, while, at the same time, the
individuals in question fully doing that part that is their
responsibility.... down to the balanced sale price so as to not
interfere with Divine action in the least.
Someone may say: Well, demanding that the house be sold as a sign from
God is already interfering with Divine action.
To which we respond: No; it is not a temporal job transfer. It is a
permanent one. Logically, a family home will be needed in the West
Coast. The prudent and wise thing to do in this scenario is to first
sell the house and then move on to the West Coast. Remember, the wife
was "offered to relocate" and not "ordered to relocate (or lose her
job)". If she had been ordered to relocate, the scenario would be
totally different and so would be the manner in which to seek
confirmation from God.
Someone else may say: What if the evil one arranges for the house to be
sold and deceive them to think that it was the Will of God?
To which we respond: When we place our trust in God and completely
defer to Him in what we do, that renders the evil one completely
powerless. Remember, God IS totally Supreme, above all and everything
is subject to Him - with no exceptions. Even satan and his minions are
subject to God, Who Is truly Almighty.
Thank you, IW, for the great teaching instrument that your letter

the greatest human "enemy" prayer has is our tendency to go "on
automatic" as we pray. Most specially in the prayers which are composed
of sets of smaller prayers which are repeated over and over again -
such as the Holy Rosary. Unless one is praying the Biblical Rosary, (1) which places a Biblical
reading between each Hail Mary, it is very easy to fall into mindless
monotonous repetition of the words with very little spiritual value.
While in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament on August 15th, an
inspiration - obviously an Illumination - gave me another option,
besides the Biblical Rosary, to remain very alert throughout a Rosary.
It is amazingly simple.... as everything is after it has been given to
one from Above.
As all our readers well know, the Hail Mary is prayed as follows:
Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee,
Blessed are Thou among women,
Blessed is the Fruit of Thy Womb.
Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.
The variation which we have already adopted is as follows:
The phrase "Mother of God" may
be alternated with any of the
following phrases, without taking an iota of
Glory away from Mary. They actually enrich the expression of Mary's
role in Salvation.
Mother of the Messiah
Mother of Our Saviour
Mother of the Son of God
Mother of Our Redeemer
As our attentive readers must know, we are not trying to do away
with the original phrase and concept "Mother of God",
considering that we showed how that title is theologically justified (2)
and defensible before other Christians who try to reduce Mary's
How do I personally do it? It varies. I may use one specific phrase in
an entire decade and change it for the next or I may randomly use all
of them within the same decade.
Rest assured, there is no way to "slip into automatic mode" using this
technique. It logically follows that, every Hail Mary, consciously
prayed, gains in spiritual power.

could do was to get ready to
turn back and go home in the dark.
The dream has nothing to do

follow key links to documents that may appear in the mailed up date. We
also note that if we highlight on the Board of Updates a
document that was published years ago, hardly anyone bothers to re read it
a document which I read and reformatted before
again on The Board. A document which I found quite interesting,
enlightening, informative and worth reviewing again
. If that was my
reaction to said document, those who are truly in sync with what we
publish should too. No; that is not lack of humility. That is calling
it like it is.
If to that obvious lack of interest we add the fact that less than ten
(of the thousands upon thousands who visit our
pages) give us periodic assistance and support - financial plus doing
Biblical searches, document translations and proofreading, and the like
- maybe it is
really time to devote more
effort to the other areas/functions that God has assigned me.
After all, it really is not
responsibility the effect our
publication has on the audience as long as I
have made an effort to be as clear
are able to.
May those who have ears, Hear, and those who have eyes, See before
they experience "....a 'snap' sound, and all light vanished. It

This morning I have had tears of Joy.
I would like to go on record
to say what a wonderful life I have been granted. To have been given
the Grace to have ears to hear
and eyes to see.
I have held on to the Lord always knowing He was by my side and at
times hearing Him.
I was granted the Grace to know one of His witnesses.
September may bring us a new Heaven and new Earth but, if not, the
Lord will always be at my side. I thank and Praise the Lord for all
that He as done for me and my family.
I find it so hard to believe so many don't want to know. I pray
they wake up in time.
It will not change what I know and believe.
When it comes down on them, they will not be able to say God did
not tell them. I have passed on everything .
Praise God for ever and ever.
Blessings and Graces!
First of all - Thank you!
for sharing with us your

Peggy, back around the turn of the
the first to discern what position m de P had been assigned by God to
occupy for the End of These Times. She and her late husband, may his
soul rest in peace, were the first ones who started helping us
financially in a manner that no one had done up to that time. Actually,
the first "real" computer that The
M+G+R Foundation had came from them.
miguel has known them well and were practically their next-door
neighbors for a while in
Spain for a short while, although we have not crossed paths again for
over ten years.
We testify that Peggy: (a) Has had a very difficult life, health
wise; (b) Has acted upon what she has "seen" and "heard" in a exemplary
manner, but not like a robot. She has reacted to what she has seen and
heard in accordance to her
relationship with God - as it should be; (c) Has witnessed to
anyone who would listen to her - without being overbearing - and done
all within her power to reach as many as she could, without fanaticism;
and last, but not least (d) Is a woman of her word.
For our dear Peggy....
May God continue to reward you with
those tears of joy; tears that only those who have experienced them can
understand and relate to.

It is interesting and rewarding to see/discover hidden meanings in the
Holy Scriptures. The following verses of the Gospel, read in a recent
Mass, are usually misunderstood regarding as to whom was Jesus
referring to when He said: "O
unbelieving and perverse generation, how long
shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you?"
It is generally understood as
if He were addressing "the multitude"
but.... was He really?
Let us take a look.
And when he was come to the
multitude, there came to him a man falling
down on his knees before him, saying: Lord, have pity on my son, for he
is a lunatic, and suffereth much: for he falleth often into the fire,
and often into the water.  And I brought him to thy disciples, and
they could not cure him.
 Then Jesus
answered and said: O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long
shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.  And Jesus
rebuked him, and the devil went out of him, and the child was cured
from that hour.  Then came the disciples to Jesus secretly, and
said: Why could not we cast him out?  Jesus said to them: Because
of your unbelief. For, amen I say to you, if you have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove from hence
hither, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you.
 But this kind is not cast out but by prayer and fasting. [Matthew 17]
When Jesus said: "O unbelieving and
perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I
", He was not referring to "the multitude
"; He was
specifically referring to His disciples as it is clearly shown when the
distraught child's father said: "
brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him
Jesus, speaking to His disciples, said:
" ...Because of your unbelief".
in response to His
disciples' " .... Why could not
we cast him out?"
Another misinterpretation and misconception clarified.

Your mailing regarding Heaven Is For
was so interesting!
interview on TV with Dr. Alexander this very week, and I was
considering reading the book. I guess I will not do that now,
reading your document (1)
I'm curious, though… why do you think you are not to read about near
death experiences? I respect that, I'm just curious.
Your question is very good and timely, therefore miguel de Portugal
will attempt to answer it in full.
When God was forming me, and before springing the question "Leave all behind
and follow me
" in 1991, He forbade me - for two whole years! -
view or listen to the news - any news! It is amazing that, even being
in the business world still, I was able to function successfully - in
two different professions - without having a clue as to what was
happening around me - in the US and the World.
The reason and final objective, I learned later on, was: He did
the news to interfere with the information that He was "downloading" in
my soul to be used later on - through direct contact with World and
Church leaders. Being human, our thinking tends to be shaped by what we
read, hear and see and He did not want that interference in me since
most of the news are fabrications with specific agendas.
Now it is different - because with His "downloaded programs installed"
I can take
in all the news in the world and see right through the lies and
and the deprogramming information they are loaded with, and then expose
for others to see. When there is some truth - It shines like a beacon
and I can easily recognize it and, again, share it with all.
Back to the key question about the Near Death Experiences reading ban.
It was for the same reason
In this case I did not have too wait to
why... the order was accompanied by the reason why.
Many of those stories are from the underworld with the purpose of
deceiving humans, like the one by Dr. Alexander.
Others are altered due to normal human behavior - forgetfulness,
embellishments, stardom syndrome, etc.
Frankly I do not know if the ban still is in place considering that I
can read any one of them and see exactly where they are really coming
from. That is, I am in a position to judge their validity.
I pray that I have succeeded in explaining clearly the reason for the
ban and Thank you!
opportunity to do so.
A Proof of
From (Mrs.) PD @ US
I have a question.
Most of the time miguel de Portugal uses plural pronouns- We
and not singular pronouns such
Is it because of, as you said in a certain document, (1)
"...there are other
"Filters", for a lack of a better word, which we will not cover in this
document. These are Graces from God, Divine Wounds, if you will,
through which highly exalted souls from the Eternal Frame may be made
manifest in the Time Frame via a living human being?
In most cases miguel
uses that technique to Glorify God.
It would improper and incorrect if miguel would speak, for example,
Revealed Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity as follows: "When I
revealed the Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity to the Vatican....
It would be confusing to the reader if miguel were to expressed that
as: "When God revealed the Secret
Concept of the Most Holy Trinity to the Vatican.... etc.
Since God revealed it, miguel transmitted it, thus he writes: "When we
revealed the Secret Concept of the Most Holy Trinity to the Vatican...
At times it may be confusing to the reader, specially if miguel makes a
mistake in the pronoun chosen for a particular statement. However,
the above example should serve to explain the
various pronouns used by miguel.
The reality that miguel is just a "gofer" is something that remains in
the forefront of his mind at
since its reality is
overwhelming. How else, in a literal
fraction of a second, could miguel fully understand Divine
secrets which others, book
individuals, have spent a lifetime
pondering about with no avail?
How about information granted to miguel in order to carry out a
spiritual task? Information which then vanishes in "thin air" after the
been fulfilled, or, as it happened several days ago.... when God showed
miguel exactly what He meant by:
unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for
the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened. [Matthew 24:22]
God showed miguel a theo logic that would cause everyone - everyone!
- to fall at the feet of
the False Christ. It was extremely disturbing to miguel because he
could see how flawless it was, yet, he knew it was false only because it was God Who was
showing it to him
in order to fully comprehend the meaning
of Matthew 24:22.
Once the purpose of that revelation was fulfilled, God "erased" the
information from miguel's mind, something for which miguel was most
grateful because it insured that miguel would not, by a natural human
mistake, share it with anyone.
Such "erasures" are not uncommon for miguel. As a matter of fact, he
jokingly refers to his "external hard disk" which connects to his
"mainframe" when God deems it necessary and not by an act of miguel's
will. Of course, when such "external hard disk" is disconnected, the
information is no longer accessible to miguel
miguel de Portugal
my memory serves
me right, only twice, since my conversion in March 19, 1985, I have
walked into a bookstore and a salesperson has walked up to me and
placed a book in my hand and said something like: "Here, you need (or may want to) to read this book." It is
interesting to note that both events have happened in two different
book stores where I was/am a regular client and which are seven
thousand miles apart.
The first book, which was handed to me in a
Religious Bookstore in
Houston, Texas, was: An Appeal from
Mary in Argentina - The (1983) Apparitions of San Nicolás
by René Laurentin, 1990. I had never heard of such apparitions
before or since. When I read it it was obvious that it was God Who
moved the cashier (not even the saleslady!) of the bookstore to place
the book in my hands.
The second time was barely a month ago in a
small town in Spain. The
scenario was identical to the one that took place 22 years ago in
Houston and my response - the same. I purchased it and began to read it
This book was the Spanish edition of "Heaven
Is For Real" by Todd Burpo. As some of you may know, the book is
"A little boy's astounding story of his trip to Heaven and back."
Why did God resort to His infrequent
method of literally placing the book in my
hand? Because He has
forbidden me from reading any publications that have to do with
Near (final) Death Experiences.
notable exception was Proof of Heaven - A
Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife written
by a now famous-because-of-the-book Neurosurgeon - Dr. E. Alexander -
about which we issued a
serious warning in the form of a document. (1) After reading Todd
Burpo's "Heaven is For Real", published two years before
Alexander's book, it is obvious to me that Alexander's book seems to
been satan's response to "Heaven Is For Real".
As you may have gathered already, we
essentially confirm the stories in
book about his son's experience as true. Although we could go down a
list, point by point, as to why we can say that Colton's experience
reflects the truth, we will not because such insight could be used in
the falsification of similar stories, should the information get out of
this private circle. It should be sufficient for those
who have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear to know that: I know from
personal experience and personal revelations that what little Colton
revealed, a little bit at a time, is the way it really is. That
why we have no doubt that the image of Jesus, about which Colton said: "Dad, that one's right.", is indeed
We highly recommend a prayerful review of said
If you choose to read it and have any questions
and/or doubts, let us
know and, God Willing, we will address them in this Forum.
P.S. We do not recommend the follow up books
and/or interviews - even
written by Todd Burpo. The genuineness and purity of the first book,
with the spontaneous responses by little (3-4 years old) Colton, should not
be replaced , color or improved by those of an older child nor
recent parental memories.

discussing False Messianism with a close friend of mine who is Jewish.
He said, "God does not like those who call
themselves messiahs," and
then he added (without any prompting or a hint from me) that the only
true messiah is Jesus Christ.
I wanted to share that with you and have your
feedback on it.
consider what Jesus said:
 So let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in
heaven.  Do not think
that I am come to destroy the law, or the
prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.  For
amen I say
unto you, till heaven and
earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not
pass of the law, till all be fulfilled. [Matthew 5]
 Every one therefore that shall
confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is
in heaven.  But he that shall deny me before men, I will
him before my Father who is in heaven. [Matthew 10]
does not take a
Vatican Council to ascertain what, right now, looks like the final
destination of your Jewish friend. He may not have had the benefits of
the Sacraments while journeying through Time, which may be translated
into a lengthier period in Purgatory (unless, of course, he takes
advantage of some of them before he crosses the veil), but the final
destination seems to be quite clear.
The KEY to salvation is to acknowledge Jesus as
the Messiah. Why? The
Messiah is the Saviour; the One Who opened the doors of Paradise for
wayward man. Whomever denies
Him as the Messiah, it logically follows,
cannot be saved for He is
denying the "means" to return to Paradise.
Of course the "acknowledgement" must be by
one's heart, not the mouth,
which will show in the way one tries to live one's life: In harmony
with law and the prophets, which is what Jesus came to give fulfillment.
It is amazingly simple. God willing, we will be
expanding on the above
in the near future.

Recently we received the following story which
seems to be making its
rounds in the Internet. We are reproducing it below for those who may
have not seen it since it exemplifies very well how God helps us to
safely navigate through Time.... if we allow Him, of course.
king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in
all circumstances would always say “my king, do not be discouraged,
because everything God does is perfect. He makes no
mistakes!” One day they went hunting and along the way a
wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal,
but could not prevent his majesty from losing a
finger. Furious and without showing his gratitude for
being saved, the nobleman asked "Is God good? If He was good, I
would not have been attacked and lost my finger." The slave
replied: "My king, despite all these things, I can only
tell you that God is good, and he knows why these things happened. What
God does is perfect. He is never wrong!"
Outraged by the
response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave.
Later, the King left for another hunt, this time alone. He was captured
by savages who engaged in human sacrifices. On the
altar and ready to sacrifice the nobleman, the savages discovered that
their victim did not have one of his fingers. According to them,
only a whole person with all his/her parts intact could be offered to
the gods. The King without a finger was deemed an abominable sacrifice
for their gods. So they released the King. Upon his return
to the palace, the King authorized the release of his slave. He
received the slave affectionately. "God was really good to me! I
was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I
was let go! But I have a question: if God is so good, why did he allow
me to put you in jail?"
The slave answered,
"my King, if I had gone with you on this hunt, I would have been
sacrificed instead because I have no missing finger. Remember
everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong. He made you keep me
in jail so I would not be with you on the hunt."
Often we complain about life, and negative things that happen to us,
forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a
purpose. Every morning, offer your day to God, don't
be in a rush. Ask God to inspire your thoughts,
guide your actions, and ease your feelings. And do not be afraid.
God is never wrong, because He never makes mistakes.......
....and I am delighted that He never does!
