The Holy Scriptures.... The Real Gift that keeps on giving!

About the serious errors associated with the "witch hunts" against the alleged heretics....

In Matthew 13 we read:
[our underscoring]

[24] Another parable he proposed to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seeds in his field. [25] But while men were asleep, his enemy came and oversowed cockle among the wheat and went his way.

[26] And when the blade was sprung up, and had brought forth fruit, then appeared also the cockle. [27] And the servants of the goodman of the house coming said to him: Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? whence then hath it cockle? [28] And he said to them: An enemy hath done this. And the servants said to him: Wilt thou that we go and gather it up? [29] And he said: No, lest perhaps gathering up the cockle, you root up the wheat also together with it. [30] Suffer both to grow until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather up first the cockle, and bind it into bundles to burn, but the wheat gather ye into my barn.

Notice - Jesus tells the "servants" not to take them out as they wanted because "
perhaps gathering up the cockle, you root up the wheat also together with it". He then proceeded to tell them that at the appointed time the "reapers" would take care of it.

In the centuries long "witch hunts" against the alleged heretics the, "servants" did exactly what Jesus warned against doing - and much of the wheat was rooted up.

Instead they should have left them grow together until harvest when the "reapers" - the angels of God - would make the separation without making a mistake nor going against Divine Law as the "witch hunters" did (and still do!).

A soul chosen by the Father to be of Christ, and who is properly Evangelized with the fundamental Messianic reality of Jesus, would not fall prey to any heresy. As a matter of fact, the heretical groups served the same purpose as Jesus speaking in parables.

And his disciples came and said to him: 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. [Matthew 13: 10-11]

and

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 13:15]

Being part of a heretical group would prevent those who were not destined for the Kingdom of God from being "...converted, and I should heal them".

There you have it! The "wisdom" of the "wise and prudent ones" at work.

At that time Jesus answered and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to the little ones. [Matthew 11:25]

Do you see why it is far better being just a "gofer"? Only a real fool would want to be "wise and prudent".


Dispelling Some Gross Misconceptions About ISLAM.

Glory to God Most High, full of Grace and Mercy; He created All, including Man. These are the opening words on The Holy Qur'an; realities which Jews, Christians and Muslims alike should embrace if they were to practice their Faith well.

Few Christians and fewer Catholic Christians ever bother to dialogue with our Muslim brethren. Much less look into their equivalent of the Christian Bible, The Holy Qur'an. It is a pity, since it can actually help us understand our own Christian Faith; a Faith which has been so grossly distorted by man over the centuries that it hardly reflects what God intended our beliefs to be.

Some fascinating issues emerge as we look through The Holy Qur'an. Fascinating especially for Catholic Christians since Muslims speak of and exemplify the Holy Trinity, without understanding it, and assert Mary's Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth of Jesus.

No, we are not promoting ISLAM, we are promoting the end of programmed ignorance.

Take a look!

For anyone in the U.S. - the movie "The Adjustment Bureau" will be on cable Saturday, July 27,  8 P.M. Central Time - Ch 242 USA (this number is on direct TV it maybe different on other cable company's)

Your documents which refer to that movie are  Divine Providence and Divine Providence - End of Movie

A. Thank you for the notification. We recommend a view of the movie to fully understand the two above referred documents.



From (Mrs.) LC @ US

The recent FYI&R pertaining to 'Dynamo', "scared the daylights" out of me, especially after I viewed his 'walking on the water' and his 'levitating' from the double-decker bus.

Thank you, yet again, for your unswerving commitment to making known the behind-the-scenes and little-known events taking place right under our noses.  I shudder to think how easily I would have been misled, had I not come across your website 'by chance'  in 2007.  I was looking for information pertaining to Rosa Mystica, and clicked on your website.

LC.

A. Thank you for your kind words and prayers. It is for those who "come across our pages 'by chance'" that we exist.  That is why we do not advertise - other than our availability to Search Engines and our encouragement to each one of you to share the information with whom the Holy Spirit of God moves you to.

Upon the 'Dynamo' potential, we will comment some more....

As is reflected in Lee Penn's summary (1) of what we have said about Mr. X's potential, we were not necessarily identifying him as the False Christ. We were demonstrating that the “human material” exists for the False Christ to be manifested, and we were showing how quickly and easily, in Mr. X's case, it could be achieved. It is possible that Mr. X himself could be moved to assume this role, if he were spiritually ready to do so. The additional possibility that God has showed us is this: that satan may use Mr.  X as a False Flag.

As we have said - Although there is only one Master Conspirator, satan, there are other groups who, thinking that they are acting on their own (and not as pawns of satan), are willing to do anything - including creating a false Second Coming, if that would serve their purposes.

Now, picture this...

(a) satan knows that we have pointed to Mr. X as a potential False Christ. We are the only ones, that I have any knowledge of, that speak of a true falsification of the Second Coming (and not an actual anti-Christ, one who would openly go against Jesus' teachings).

(b) Those who follow our revelations would not be surprised if Dynamo is presented as the False Christ; then

(c)  A "real" Second Coming  is manifested and the "real"  Jesus Christ unmasks Dynamo and gets rid of him while, all who were expecting a real False Christ, sigh in relief. "We made it", they think, as they lower their guard and prostrate in adoration at the feet of the individual who got rid of Dynamo and "saved them"..

(d) The only problem is that satan used Dynamo as a False Flag and the real False Christ is the one who unmasks Dynamo.

Our point - which is repeated over and over again: Unless the Holy Spirit of God is in full residence in our hearts, no one, but no one is a match for satan's snares. To establish and remain in such state should be the No. 1, 2 and 3! priorities of our lives. All else is completely secondary.

To conclude this response we will quote below from a news report/interview with Dynamo which was published last year. We will comment at the end of the quotes.

'Mentally, I've always been different from most people': Why millions have fallen under Dynamo's spell.

He's the British magician who can walk on water and turn lottery tickets into cash. No wonder he has fans across the world, including Prince Charles and David Beckham.

'Magic enables me to hang on to my sense of wonder. But the greatest thing is that I can make other people gasp with astonishment. Every single performance I give, the reaction is different,' said Dynamo

Steven 'Dynamo' Frayne is no ordinary magician.  Then again, he's no ordinary man either. Throughout our meeting, he will spontaneously take a break from talking and dazzle me with some of his spellbinding routines.

Dynamo's TV series, Magician Impossible, was watched by 2.4 million people. The DVD became an instant bestseller when released last Christmas.

However, his fame has mostly been boosted by YouTube clips of his performances, which have been watched by tens of millions.

An audience of 1.5 billion watched him perform for Foo Fighters and Joss Stone at an MTV awards ceremony. Since that time, he has befriended a host of other famous names. Other famous fans include Will Smith, Jay Z, Paul McCartney and David Beckham.

‘One of my first heroes was Superman. I actually believed he was real.

'When I perform as Dynamo, it's like I'm entering a phone box and changing into my Superman outfit. I can identify with super heroes.

'Like me, they're outsiders who have discovered a skill that they use to survive.’

'Magic became the one thing in life I could depend on, the one thing that would never let me down.’

It's hard to imagine anyone radiating positivity quite like Dynamo.

'I don't allow myself to have a dark side,' he says. ‘If I wanted to, I could use magic for wicked purposes, but that's not how I choose to live my life.

'Take gambling, for example. I'm able to read cards which means that I wouldn't be welcome in too many casinos around the world. But I've learnt to only use my powers for good.

'Of course, I get asked to spill my secrets all the time. How did I do this trick? How did I pull off that illusion? There would be no point in me trying to explain. There are times when I don't know how something worked. It just did.'

'It's not enough for me to amaze people once or twice,' he says. ‘I need to keep doing it. That means doing more and more amazing stuff.

And, with that, he asks me to think of a card, any card. I visualise the six of clubs. Dynamo nods thoughtfully and then proceeds to pull the six of clubs from his left ear.

Pure magic. Pure genius. Pure Dynamo.

Final comments: We cannot think of a single human being alive today who has the same potential pull over the masses as Dynamo has. We have not seen him mention God in his two seasons of shows or in his auto-biography. Nevertheless, given Dynamo’s psychological makeup, anyone with sufficient status in his eyes could convince him to play the role of Christ in his Second Coming ... for the good of humanity.

Do we need to call Daniel for an interpretation of the handwriting on the wall?

Published on July 25th, 2013 [Feast of the Apostle St. James the Greater]

From (Mr.) RBB @ Spain

In the list of Religious Days of Note for Calendar Year 2013 (1), you wrote for October 15th (the emphasis is mine):

OCTOBER 15th --- St. Teresa of Jesus (Avila) and  Eid al-Adha - Feast of Sacrifice or Day of Sacrifice - (In the Muslim calendar, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate Eid al-Adha on the sunset of 14th of October. It recalls the day when Abraham intended to follow the instructions of God, and sacrifice his son Ishmael.)

As we know, according to the Book of Genesis, the son of the sacrifice intended by Abraham was Isaac, not Ishmael (2).  I thought that you inadvertently copied the name wrong from some on-line source where the name was wrong, since the Wikipedia also contains the same "mistype".  (3)

"Eid al-Bakr and Bakrid, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to honour the willingness of the prophet Abraham to sacrifice his young first-born son Ishmael."

When trying to solve the puzzle, this is the big surprise I found (at least, it has been a surprise for me):

In Jewish and Christian tradition, Abraham is told by God to sacrifice his son Isaac and at the last minute is stopped, at which point a ram is provided to sacrifice instead. In Islamic tradition, it is typically believed that Abraham is told to sacrifice his son Ishmael, not Isaac, though the Qur'an does not actually state which son. Due to this ambiguity, there has been a lot of debate over which son is the intended sacrifice and there are many versions of each view recorded. (4)

RBB

A.
Most Christians are not aware of this.

We have been since we have studied the Qur'an in three different languages so that we could write Judaism, Christianity and Islam Are Not Incoherent Amongst Themselves; On The Contrary, There Is Great Coherence Amongst Them! and The Muslim Corner - Dispelling Some Misconceptions About Our Muslim Brethren

As a matter of record - and something that you, of all people, should know better - we do not use "...some on-line source..." in place of the Holy Texts when we are dealing with matters of this importance.

Thank you for the opportunity to highlight this radical difference, and to set you straight on our sources.

Of course, the correct son was Isaac - something I would also have to acknowledge if I were a Muslim. Facts are facts, regardless of faith base.

About NaturalNews - miguel de Portugal comments

Since we crossed virtual paths we have felt somewhat uneasy about Mr. Mike Adams and what (and when) he promotes in his various domains. His alleged expertise on almost everything, up to, and including spiritual matters, also caused some concerns. Perhaps it was when he started "teaching" about spiritual matters that the red flags joined the red warning lights already flashing.

Two days ago we visited his "About Us" page (1). We quote and highlight it:

The NaturalNews Network is a non-profit collection of public education websites covering topics that empower individuals to make positive changes in their health, environmental sensitivity, consumer choices and informed skepticism. The NaturalNews Network is owned and operated by Truth Publishing International, Ltd., a Taiwan corporation. It is not recognized as a 501(c)3 non-profit in the United States, but it operates without a profit incentive, and its key writer, Mike Adams, receives absolutely no payment for his time, articles or books other than reimbursement for items purchased in order to conduct product reviews.

The vast majority of our content is freely given away at no charge. We offer thousands of articles and dozens of downloadable reports and guides (like the Honest Food Guide) that are designed to educate and empower individuals, families and communities so that they may experience improved health, awareness and life fulfillment.

The NaturalNews Network is not for sale, and does not accept money to cover any story (or to spike it). We are what the news industry used to be, before it sold out to big businessWe have no particular religious affiliation and are considered religion-neutral. We also have no particular political affiliation and do not endorse political candidates.

After reading the above, the red fireworks joined the red flags and flashing red lights.

We spend a few minutes doing some general checking on such a strange and foreign conglomerate and their alleged "not for their benefit" enterprises.

Following are some of the links that we viewed. Even if only 50 % of what is revealed in those links is true, every red flag, flashing red lights and red fireworks have been confirmed with physical data.

We will not engage in any discussion about this matter. Just consider yourselves alerted about some very possible irregularities in the NaturalNews universe.

From miguel de Portugal

Some time ago we announced that we had come across and individual who - from his background, abilities, social and connectivity reach and mind set - could, in just a few hours, and guided by the appropraite "mentors", be easily presented to the world as a very believable False Christ. At that point my instructiosn from God were not to identify him openly. That has now changed.

The following two items, prepared for us by a close cooperator, will give you a glimpse of how easy it would be to use him as a falsification of the Second Coming of Christ. Of course, the following, as we said, is just a glimpse. The full reality defies words.

The highlights are from the preparer:

1. "Dynamo (Steven Frayne) is God" from a fan page in Facebook.
 
It may be nothing more than excessive enthusiasm from a fan ... or it might be a sample of things to come.

Dynamo (Steve Frayne) is God.

  
 
2. Dynamo trumps any frilly-shirted conjuror
 
He's a downbeat genius whose sleights of hand can be powerfully moving in ways I can’t explain to myself or anyone else, says Alison Graham 

Instead I introduced myself as an admirer and wished him luck (his show, Dynamo: Magician Impossible, was nominated for best entertainment programme, though it lost to The Graham Norton Show). Only a few weeks before, Dynamo (or Steven Frayne) had entranced me and my fellow TV writers in the Broadcasting Press Guild at our annual awards dinner. (He won one of our awards, because we know what we are talking about.) He played a quick trick on us all that to this day I’m still trying to work out. It was a sleight of hand involving our actual hands. Admittedly it wasn’t on the scale of Dynamo’s big set pieces, like walking on the Thames and levitating by a London bus, but hey, we’re journalists, we’ll take anything we can get.

Anyway, Dynamo (who’s 5ft 8in and must be all of about eight stones) and I had a brief pre-Bafta chat in which he said he couldn’t quite understand what he was doing at such a starry, glittery event. Now, I’m used to false modesty from showbizzy people and actors (“It’s nothing to do with me, it’s all in the script”), but I could tell he actually meant it. You can see from his programmes – a new series of Dynamo: Magician Impossible starts on Watch on Thursday – that he’s the most unassuming of men, pootling around rough bits of New York staggering onlookers into baffled silences then howls of incredulity as he performs tricks that defy gravity, the laws of nature and even life as we know it. Laces tie themselves! The hands on a watch in a magazine ad move before our eyes!

[contributor's comments:  "the most unassuming of men" ... just like Bergoglio aka Francis ]

I can’t bear shiny, spangly entertainment shows, probably I was scarred for life by watching Seaside Special as a child, and frilly-shirted, self-aggrandising magicians have always made my palms sweat. But Dynamo is different. He has none of US illusionist David Blaine’s grandiosity or pomposity. I love him, he’s a guerrilla showman with a soft Yorkshire accent, a downbeat genius whose tricks of misdirection and sleights of hand can be powerfully moving in ways I can’t explain to myself or anyone else. There’s a fabulous sequence in this week’s Magician Impossible where he does something amazing involving hundreds of people in Times Square. I won’t say any more but I had a tear in my eye seeing all these people, only days after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy last October, shouting with delighted disbelief, in a kind of fellowship of joy. What he does shouldn’t be possible. It can’t be possible.

Of course it’s probably all done with misdirection and mirrors, but really, I don’t want to know. Find any Dynamo story on the internet and you can bet that underneath there will be sour comments from joyless windbags claiming to know how he did it and how the rest of us are lame-brained saps for being taken in.

Well they can all shut up. Dynamo, in his own, quiet Bradford way, is about celebrating humanity and all our possibilities. Anyone with a heart and a conscience loves to be amazed and no one can do it quite like him.

From (Mr.) TJ @ US


With reference to your recent mailing about "Journalist Sandro Magister accuses Francis of promoting a 'Gay Lobby' prelate" (1).

Msgr.Ricca's troubles are sad for him, possibly making his salvation difficult, and the misinformation is outrageous.

What I have difficulty accepting, however, is the notion that the "Vatican Bank" can be reformed at all. 

Banking is inherently the realm of Mammon.  The existence of a Vatican bank, once disclosed, in my mind should be treated like the discovery of the existence of a "Vatican Brothel." 

One does not appoint a new leader of said brothel, and try to reform it.  One shuts it down.  It should be likewise for the bank.  That it is not just shows how the shows of reform are merely cosmetic.

TJ

A.
Frankly, we could not agree with you more. A position which has the full endorsement of the twelve Apostles:

[1] And in those days, the number of the disciples increasing, there arose a murmuring of the Greeks against the Hebrews, for that their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. [2] Then the twelve calling together the multitude of the disciples, said: It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. [3] Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. [4] But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.[Acts 6]

Unfortunately, most of these individuals are really interested in how much money and power they can squeeze out from the innocent faithful by using the Holy Name of God and that of Mary, and not in giving themselves "continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word".

Thanks be to God all of that will end soon - and for good!

From (Mrs.) LC @ US

I'm confused about the encyclical Lumen Fidei (The Light of the Faith).  I still can't figure out if it was written solely by Benedict XVI, or if Francis I gave his input as well.

If Benedict XVI was the sole author, then why isn't his signature on it, instead of that of his successor?

If, on the other hand, both "popes" collaborated on this work, then why wasn't it signed by both of them, thus indicating who the real authors are?

However, if Francis I had nothing to do with its composition, then why did he sign it, knowing full well he had nothing to do with it?

From a legal perspective, could any of the above-stated scenarios constitute fraud, as well as the falsifying of a legal document?  If so, where's the outcry over this?  Why the deafening silence?

I'm just wondering...

May God continue to bless you in abundance with His Choicest Blessings and Graces.

LC

A. According to the repeated statement from the Vatican, most of the encyclical was written by Ratzinger.

The rest of your questions could be answered with one statement: Babylon does not play by Divine or Civil Rules.

They play by the rules set by who Babylon, and her many, many children, serve, while the awestruck, un Evangelized followers continue to remain speechless except when they are told "Squat", to which they respond in unison: "Where". 'Obedience', you know...

We thank both you and Mr. TJ for writing and sharing your views and concerns with all of us.

From miguel de Portugal

There is a reading from the Old Testament about which Christians and Jews alike may think "Yeah, sure!"  and move on. The reading follows:

And the word of the Lord came to Isaias, saying: Go and say to Ezechias: Thus saith the Lord the God of David thy father: I have heard thy prayer, and I have seen thy tears: behold I will add to thy days fifteen years:  And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of the Assyrians, and I will protect it. And this shall be a sign to thee from the Lord, that the Lord will do this word which he hath spoken: Behold I will bring again the shadow of the lines, by which it is now gone down in the sun dial of Achaz with the sun, ten lines backward. And the sun returned ten lines by the degrees by which it was gone down.  The writing of Ezechias king of Juda, when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness.  I said: In the midst of my days I shall go to the gates of hell: I sought for the residue of my years. [Isaiah 38: 4-10]

Well, I am in a position to tell you, without a doubt, that Achaz did indeed experience that - the extended years and the lines moving backward. It was neither his imagination nor some alcoholized Biblical copyist that decided to have some fun at the expense of the faithful.

A document that we published back in 2011 may give you some clues about how that could have happened, but not the complete explanation. As for the complete explanation, it is to remain with me for now.

And as if that were not enough....

We have another Gift from God to share with you.

The following New Testament verse ....

And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect which he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. [Mark 13:20]

....has another meaning besides the main one which specifically deals with the End of These Times.
.
As we have discussed elsewhere (1), those who are destined for the Kingdom of God or Eternal Damnation are known to God even before they are born. To that extent, there is predestination; however, how one navigates through Time, from birth to death, is entirely up to the free will of the individual.

We have also discussed in some of our posts/documents that there are some sins that cause a spiritual wound in the soul, of such magnitude, that it prevents that soul from fulfilling its main purpose in Time. Even if the wound is healed - the scar has disfigured the soul permanently.

Now then, if a young individual, who is among the Elect, (2) is in a particular path which, when God projects it into the future He can see that said individual will incur a spiritual wound which will fully disqualify him/her from entering into the Kingdom, God will take him/her away in what will appear to humans as an untimely and unfair manner.

This is the other meaning of Mark 13:20. If God had not shortened the days of said member of the Elect, he/she would be lost which is impossible since in Eternity that individual is already in the Kingdom of God.

On the other hand one hears about individuals who, as the result of an accident or an abortion, should have died yet, they do not to the amazement of all. In these cases said individuals were destined for the Kingdom of God but, as the result of their own free will they are required to make some choices which will propitiate their entering into the Kingdom. If they had died as the result of the abortion or accident it would have been impossible for them to fulfill said requirement(s), therefore, God saved their lives against all odds.

As the reader may have noticed - only God can make such determinations and take the appropriate action and not a human - ever!

Please forgive me if I have not expressed myself clearer than I have. Some of these mysteries are very difficult to explain in human terms. If you have any questions, ask and we shall try to respond to them... to the extent I am able to.

On the Divine Encouragement post of July 17th we commented:

.....all that is of God is that simple.

It is man, in his never ending attempts to be like God and bask himself in a false aura of self importance, who makes things very complicated and use many "fancy" words to be exalted by those who do not know any better.

As we reviewed the Maledict-Francis encyclical Lumen Fidei (The Light of the Faith), highlighted for our convenience (1) by a loyal cooperator, we could not believe our eyes, but praised God for placing such a perfect example of our comments regarding simplicity, God and man.

The reader may easily confirm our commentaries, as quoted above, with the following information:

The Light of the Faith, as given by God to miguel de Portugal, can be fully explained as follows:

The light of the Faith

When one believes in the reality of God, as manifested by striving to live a life which reflects such Faith, the Holy Spirit of God will reside in one's heart.

Such internal Light will illuminate, thus guide from within, every action - seen and unseen - that one will take, thus minimizing the difficulties encountered in one's journey through Time while, at the same time, being of great comfort at the times of suffering that one must endure during said journey.

And that, brothers and sisters, is what the "Light of the Faith" really means.

It took the Maledict-Francis team over thirty pages of written text (1) in an effort to explain what Lumen Fidei truly means, and yet they failed while introducing more errors to further confuse the already disoriented Roman Catholic.

We rest our case, as an attorney would say.

We are sharing the following with our readership since banking, as well as purchases with credit cards, via Internet have become a daily event for many. Not to mention the use of a string of passwords, PIN's etc., which have become part of our daily routine.

Maybe I am too naive and ignorant about "The Ways of the Web", but, in case most of our readers are too, we want to share with you the following.

What is  the point of this story? Know that whatever you store in your computer hard disk, pen drive, etc. etc. will "live on and on" long after you have deleted it.

Most of you may have heard about computer stored data being retrieved after fires and/or floods from the partially damaged hard disks. "Innocent me" thought that such quasi miraculous feats were performed by highly specialized companies staffed by Super Geeks.

Well, we have had a very rude awakening and that is why we want to alert our readers bout it.

I had heard that there was a program available that would list the file names of documents or files that had been stored in said device (hard disk, pen drive, memory card, etc.) even if the material had been deleted.

A close cooperator obtained for us said program, which is free and can be downloaded from the Internet. We diligently followed the instructions of installation and operation and then.... Shock!

No; it did not list the names of the files that were in such hard disk, pen drive, etc. and had been deleted.... It made available every single file that had been deleted and one could bring it back to life. That is - you can retrieve a deleted file from any hard disk, pen drive, etc. whether it was yours or not.

Just as I was recovering from that shock, I decided to perform a full re-format on a pen drive to see if the files could be erased permanently. Once the full re-format was completed, using the "miraculous" program, we searched the pen drive for files. After the first pass, the program informed me that the files were no longer available, but.... there was a "Plan B".

We followed Plan "B" instructions and, not only found the files which the re-format had wiped out, but every single file that had ever been in that pen drive since it had been purchased in 2003.

Now, picture this as an example of the problem this "forever and ever data" may present. Several years ago we sent the first IBM lap top computer that we used to a priest in a very poor and small country in Africa. The computer was very limited since it was purchased around the turn of the century, but he could use it to type his homilies, prepare his lessons (he taught in a local Seminary), and simple e-mail transmission. We did the basic "restore to factory condition" procedure with the disks provided by IBM and sent the computer to Africa.

With that free download easy-to-use program that we "have just met", most every single file that we ever had in that computer hard drive could be retrieved and used as the retriever sees fit wherever that computer is now in the Black Continent.

Of course, there are no "dark secrets" in that computer, but there is a lot of personal information associated with letters written to governmental offices, credit card companies, old passwords, etc., etc.

As a close cooperator once said: The safest computer is the one which has not been built!

Let's Understand the Biblical Definition of the Term "CHURCH"

It Is Time to Call a Spade, SPADE


Did you know that.... if Henry A. Wallace (1) had not be forced out of the U.S. VicePresidential candidacy for Rosevelt's fourth term and replaced with Harry Truman, the conclusion of World War II and the post war period may have been dramatically different in two major areas: (a) The Atomic bombs would not have been used in Japan; and (b)  The post war U.S. - Soviet relationship?

It is interesting to see how this dramatic shift fits with Divine Mercy In Action. (2)

Not only was it the site of the largest Christian church in the Orient, St. Mary's Cathedral, but it also had the largest concentration of baptized Christians in all of Japan. It was the city where the legendary Jesuit missionary, Francis Xavier, established a mission church in 1549, a Christian community which survived and prospered for several generations.

However, soon after Xavier's planting of Christianity in Japan, Portuguese and Spanish commercial interests began to be accurately perceived by the Japanese rulers as exploitive, and therefore the religion of the Europeans (Christianity) and their new Japanese converts became the target of brutal persecutions.

At 11:02 am,August 9, 1945,
St. Mary's Cathedral and Nagasaki Christianity was boiled, evaporated and carbonized in a scorching, radioactive fireball. The persecuted, vibrant, faithful, surviving center of Japanese Christianity had become ground zero.

And what the Japanese Imperial government could not do in over 200 years of persecution, Christians did in 9 seconds. St. Mary's Cathedral and the entire worshipping community of Nagasaki was wiped out.

Published on July 13th, 2013 [Mary, Mystical Rose (Rosa Mystica) and Revelation of the Secret of Fátima]

From miguel de Portugal

In today's Gospel [Matt. 10: 24-33] there is a verse about which most people do not grasp its full and important significance. It is imperative that our readers understand it so that you can enlighten others about it.

The verse in question is: [32] Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven. [33] But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven... [Matthew 10]

"Confess me before men" is not what most people think; it is not just saying "I am a Christian". "Confess me before men" means striving, in all sincerity, to live His teachings, not just saying "I am a Christian" and only going through the motions.

Another Gospel reading hardly noticed is: [28] But what think you? A certain man had two sons; and coming to the first, he said: Son, go work today in my vineyard. [29] And he answering, said: I will not. But afterwards, being moved with repentance, he went. [30] And coming to the other, he said in like manner. And he answering, said: I go, Sir; and he went not.[31] Which of the two did the father' s will? They say to him: The first. [Matthew 21]

Notice! The son who measured up to his father's standards was not the one who said "Yes"; it is the son who, regardless of what he initially said, did the will of his father.

Let us take this theo-logic one step further....

Today we remember very specially the revelation of the Secret of Fatima 96 years ago! What we must remember, and learn, from the whole Fatima phenomena is that when God says something, we must listen and act upon it. (1)

What He allowed (not caused but allowed) upon humanity in the 20th century has no match in history and all that would have taken to prevent it was: (a) The Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary ; and (b) The establishment of the First Saturday of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That is all that God requested from those who claim to be the only mens of salvation - the Roman Catholic Church Administration.

The Administrators of the Roman Catholic Church obviously thought: "Oh, He is all Love; He would not do this or that. He will have Mercy and spare us." and, as usual when it is not convenient for them, they ignored the requests. The price - which we are still paying - was practically unmeasurable.

God gives us tremendous latitude in action but when He clearly states via the Scriptures and/or Mary that we need to do this or that or behave in this way or that way, we must obey regardless of what anyone else may think or do!

People should not count on an 11th hour bail out for the avoidance of monumental suffering and you should make anyone that will listen aware of this.

Notice that we are saying "avoidance of monumental suffering" and not Salvation. To better understand this we refer the reader to our document (2) explaining Time and Eternity.

We are in the process of composing a document defining the term "Church" as used in the Old and New Testaments. A definition which will bring to a definite and unquestionable end the misuses and abuses in the use of said term.

As part of that effort, we have clarified further our document about the True Petrine Ministry which was originally composed eleven years ago. We strongly recommend our readers to carefully review said document in preparation for the upcoming document about the conclusive definition of the term "Church".


From (Mr.) WS @ US


I read Dan Brown's newest novel, "Inferno."  As are all Dan Browns' novels, this is a thriller with the same type of supporting cast who is in a race with time and pointing to a solution to life's pressing problems. 

This one in particular deals with over-population and dwindling resources. The good outcome always is the need of a change of global attitude for the whole world, recognizing that the odds are not in our favor.  The bad guy is a member of the Transhumanist ideology.  

The serpent's remark in the Garden "you will surely not die", seems to be the heart of man's yearning to live in the physical realm forever.  Self-reliance, no matter how noble, is the driving force, for all speculation on the future.  Disney's "Cycle of Life" scenario always relies on heroic measures by extraordinary people in order to reach Utopia at the end of the story.  Of course the story does end, but life goes on.
Transhumanism, at its worst, would have cyborgs inherit the earth.   Effectiveness and efficiency with Eternity thrown in is always the Futurist's goal;  but, which program will be implemented?

The "dark side" a la, George Lucas, is the continuing nemesis of the hero. Makes for a good novel with a movie surely to follow.

With things like fracking and mass hysteria and psyops and false flags, it's a wonder that anyone has any faith left.....  Oh, wait! someone said that  before ; " ...when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on Earth?[Luke 18:8]

Published on July 9th, 2013 [Mary, Miraculous Mother and the beginning of Ramadan (The holiest period in the Islamic year)]

From (Mrs.) IW @ US

While praying the Rosary, something disturbing came to mind.  I invoked the Holy Spirit, asking Him to not let me be deceived; that if what I was "seeing/hearing" was a devilish trick to distract me, then to please remove it from my mind.  I continued praying, but the "vision" didn't go away.  Then your name came to mind.  That convinced me I need to make you aware of this. 

I saw the following with the "eyes of the soul":

It's a beautiful sunny day in Rome.  I  see a close-up of the Bishop of Rome, Francis I.  He is standing in front of a great throng.  He is smiling.  His arms are outstretched, and he intermittently waves to the crowd below him.  I see the faces of the people.  They are all thrilled to be in the presence of this man.  All eyes are on him.  They are oblivious to anything else.

Then, in the background, I see a darkened room.  The lone occupant of the room is Francis' predecessor, who is sitting at a large desk.  He is bent over, writing.  He is wearing the identical clothes his successor is wearing.  Once he is finished writing, he stands up.  Due to his weakened state, he is unable to stand upright.  He is supporting himself with both hands on the desk.  As he does this, he is looking straight ahead.

I now "see" from his perspective, the back of Francis I, who is standing in the bright sunlight.  Francis is basking not only in the warm sunlight, but also in the adoration of the crowd.  (That's the word that came to mind:  adoration).    Such noise!  Such cheers!  "Long live Francis the 1st!  Long live Francis the 1st!"

All the while, Francis' predecessor is in the shadows.  I now see his face close-up.  It is a sickly gray pallor, his eyes unblinking and piercing, and his features are distorted.  His teeth are clenched, yet his lips are moving, like he is muttering under his breath.  I do not understand anything he might be saying. 
 
Emanating from Maledict is a venomous hatred for Francis.  This hatred is so strong it's palpable.  It stems from Maledict's deep and bitter resentment that he is no longer the recipient of what the adoring crowds are now bestowing on Francis I.  And if he had the strength to do so, Maledict would annihilate his successor right then and there.

The thought: "If looks could kill, the Bishop of Rome would be dead", came to mind.   

All I could think of was: "O my God!  O my God!  If only the multitudes could see him for who he really is - Evil Personified!"

This "pope" never cared about his "flock".  He was too involved with the power of the position entrusted to him.  And he wants that power back…

That's the end of the "vision".

It was unsettling, to say the least.

Be assured of my continued prayers for you, your health, your ministry, and your family.mm

IW

A.
We do not make a practice of publishing submitted material of this nature, however, being that it reflects a reality as we know/feel it, we chose to publish it.

To the above "seen/felt" sentiments of Maledict, add that, generally speaking, in his germanic mind (1), Latin Americans are "second class world citizens" and he now has to witness the adoring crowds cheering Francis as he was never cheered.

In the Spanish Wikipedia version (2) of Francis Page we read (our translation and highlights):

After the first month of his pontificate, polls show that Pope Francis has a high approval rating and improved the image of the Catholic Church. Some journalists have noted that one of the keys to the acceptance of the new pope is their language straightforward, which provides headlines almost daily against corruption, worldliness or ambition. In the few weeks after his election had increased both the number of confessions of the faithful attendance at Mass, which was called the "Francis Effect"; and according to one study, many people who have moved away from the Catholic Church are coming back.

This is precisely what we were talking about regarding the "sweetening" of the deception. Maledict could never achieve this but the "all smiles" new Bishop of Rome is attracting more disoriented faithful than honey can attract flies.

Another confirmation such statistical report give us is: If we see that a change of a local parish priest increases Mass attendance because the new priest's homilies are inspiring and his Masses are truly moving - that makes sense and is very logic.

When one sees an increase in the number of confessions and Mass attendance just because the Bishop of Rome is very likable, we are seeing the truth: Entrenched Idolatry.

The center of the Catholic Faith is God, manifested in His Trinity and not man - any man!

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience.

It is important that we understand why....

God Must Say "No!" Sometimes



From (Mr.) RBB @ Spain

When one hears about "The City of Seven Hills" or "The Seven Hills of ______" most people immediately think of Rome. This is a good example of how one can subtly be brainwashed through repetition.

The first shock comes when one realizes that such identifying trait also applies to Moscow. The Seven hills of Moscow is a historic name of several elevated sections of terrain, on top of which Moscow was built. (1)

The "aftershock" comes when one is informed that there is a very long list of cities claiming that same identifying trait. (2)

More than 50 cities, as a matter of fact. The list include: San Francisco, Seattle, Seven Hills (Ohio), Rome (Georgia, USA), Jerusalem, Tehran, Melbourne, Barcelona, Brussels, Budapest, Cáceres, Lisbon, Prague, etc., etc.

______________
(1) Seven hills of Moscow
(2) List of cities claimed to be built on seven hills
(3) Rome, Georgia (USA)
(4) Lisbon - City of the seven hills


It is also important that we understand that....

When God makes a very specific request, which is associated with a very concrete example of the need to obey it, it really is a very good idea to heed His request.

For example:

....another said: I will follow thee, Lord; but let me first take my leave of them that are at my house. Jesus said to him: No man putting his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. [Luke 9: 61-62]

Such statement appears hard to understand at first, but when it is spiritually and intellectually processed with:

No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. [Luke 16:13]

"Looking back" refers to our "hanging on" to the world we must leave in order to enter the Kingdom of God.

And what are the consequences of trying to play for "two teams"?  Let us rewind to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah:

...take thy wife, and the two daughters which thou hast: lest thou also perish in the wickedness of the city. [16] And as he lingered, they took his hand, and the hand of his wife, and of his two daughters, because the Lord spared him. [17] And they brought him forth, and set him without the city: and there they spoke to him, saying: Save thy life: look not back, neither stay thou in all the country about: but save thyself in the mountain, lest thou be also consumed. [Genesis 19 15-17]
and

[24] And the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrha brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven. [25] And he destroyed these cities, and all the country about, all the inhabitants of the cities, and all things that spring from the earth. [26] And his wife looking behind her, was turned into a statue of salt. [Genesis 19: 24-26]

The point here is not whether Lot's wife was really turned into a statue of salt or not. The point is that if God specifically says "Do not do this or that", specially when Divine Justice is being dispensed, we must make sure that we obey.

Which, of course, brings us to the information/instructions about the Three Days of Darkness as transmitted through Padre Pio (1).

January 23, 1950:  Jesus to Padre Pio

"Pray!  Make reparation!  Be fervent and practice mortification. Great things are at stake!  Pray!  Men are running toward the abyss of Hell in great rejoicing and merry-making, as though they were going to a masquerade ball or the wedding feast of the devil himself!  Assist Me in the salvation of souls. The measure of sin is filled!  The day of revenge, with its terrifying happenings is near -  nearer then you can imagine!  And the world is sleeping in false security!  The Divine Judgment shall strike them like a thunderbolt! These Godless and wicked people shall be destroyed without mercy, as were the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorra of old. Yes, I tell you their wickedness was not as great as that of our human race today!"

January 28, 1950:  Jesus to Padre Pio

"Keep your windows well-covered.  Do not look out.  Light a blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the Rosary. Read spiritual books.  Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of love, which are so pleasing to Us.  Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the ground, in order that many souls may be saved.  Do not go outside the house.  Provide yourself with sufficient food.  The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear.  Have courage!  I am in the midst of you."


miguel de Portugal comments: When we started to prepare this post, what you read above could not have been further from my mind. It just flowed out.

As we have said before, I learn much when I take note of what we are doing/saying/writing.

(1) Three Days of Darkness



Published on July 4th, 2013 [Feast of St. Elizabeth (Queen) of Portugal and U.S. Independence Day]

From miguel de Portugal

As many U.S. Citizens and Residents celebrate Independence Day, we wish to remind each and everyone that:

(a) The U.S. is not perfect but, my traveling experience and the living within (not as an outsider looking in) foreign lands have served to confirm to me, without any reservations, that, with all its faults and imperfections, the U.S. is the proverbial head and shoulders above all the nations of the world.

(b) The nation that God has granted us should be cared for with love and great patience and purified further through prayers, constructive criticism, constructive actions and loyalty.

(c) We cannot allow "familiarity to breed contempt" and should value and cherish every freedom and right that we have been granted as a very special, and irreplaceable gem.

(d) Anyone who only contributes destructive criticism and is not willing to work, in a constructive manner, to improve the U.S., should return to their country of origin and, if the individual is a U.S. citizen by birth, he/she should depart to whichever country they think "has greener grass" than in the U.S.

This position is nothing new for me. It actually dates back to the early sixties while in Texas A&M University and the University of California at Berkeley. Every time I heard a foreign student malign and/or criticize the U.S. in a destructive manner, I invited them to pack their bags and "Go Home!" Not even my closest foreign student friends escaped from such suggestion.... and they knew I was serious as a block of granite. This is one of the few areas left for which I have no patience whatsoever!

Just like the Catholic Faith, although not having "all the answers", is the Faith with the greatest concentration of "right answers", the United States has the greatest concentration of positive attributes a sovereign nation should have when compared with all the nations that we are familiar with - in practice and/or historically.

A question may now arise in the minds of some of our readers:

Why, if you feel that way, you are not currently residing in the U.S.?

To which I will answer:

It is God, and through God, you whom I serve and it is the Will of God that I am where I am now.

When we say - The fulfillment of the Will of God for each soul, exactly as it should be in that moment in Time, is the perfect state for that soul. - is exactly what that means.

Since it will not be possible for me to do so today, and considering the precarious and fleeting times that we are living through right now, will those of you who are on U.S. territory kiss the ground on my behalf while thanking God for the almost unlimited Graces that He has bestowed upon all of us?  Thank you!

Happy Fourth of July!

Although the information which appear on these Private FYI&R post is not available in our Domain for a general audience, it is the Will of God that you be informed  that you are entitled to share the information with whomever His Holy Spirit moves you to.

Think of yourselves as Apostles of the End of These Times. You may not realize it, but you have access to an enormous amount of information; information that "learned theologians" have been intellectually, not spiritually, seeking for the last 1,600 years and not found. That information belongs to God and is destined for those whom He chooses.

I do not "have a corner" on the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. Yes, make no mistake, the position God has granted m de P is unique, but the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God is for all of those who are sincerely willing to allow to be moved by Him.

Therefore, if He moves you to share this or that with him, her or all, after seeking His confirmation, and receiving it, share it!


From (Mrs.) RM @ Puerto Rico

After reviewing a selection of Opus Dei videos, a thought came to me.

The theory of Opus Dei is fundamentally wrong.

The idea of "sanctification through our work" is against God's teachings. Who is the one who sanctifies? God, is the only one Who can Sanctify. No kind of work can sanctify us.

What Cain offered to God? The product of his hands, his work, and was not found pleasant to God; while Abel offered the best sheep, which were nurtured by the love of Abel for God's Creation, and that, was pleasing to God.

After being banned from Eden, the work of our hands was one of the curses of the land. (1)

To think that we can sanctify ourselves by the product of our hands, by our work, is to believe that we can control the sanctification process.

When Jesus came, He talked about adoring God in Spirit and Truth. He spoke about spiritual offerings; about the fulfillment of the Law. All of it summarized by and in Love.

Opus Dei is at Cain's side. It is a spiritual delusion!

RM

A. Interesting observations. A good complement to our document explaining Opus Dei's failed-from-conception theology. (2)

Some readings applicable to your observation follow:

For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory, but not before God. [Romans 4:2]

Was not Abraham our father justified by works, offering up Isaac his son upon the altar? [James 2:21]  

And in like manner also Rahab the harlot, was not she justified by works, receiving the messengers, and sending them out another way? [James 2:25]  

But knowing that man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ; we also believe in Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: because by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. [Galatians 2:16]

Whomever has faith in Jesus Christ does not need to use political and financial power, (2) the two corner stones of Opus Deism, to produce good fruit.  In addition, a tree in the shadows, where most of Opus Dei operations take place, not only cannot produce good fruit, but it will simply decay in due time.

John Bosco, in the violently anti-clerical Italy of the 19th century - an anticlericalism akin to that of the post French Revolution France and that of Soviet Russia - had the country, and its anticlerical rulers, in his pocket - without betraying his Faith and obedience to the Popes (3). Without a doubt, Bosco did more for the Italian peninsula in forty years than most Popes did combined up to Bosco's time. Conversely, Spain, with Opus Dei controlling governments and institutions since the post civil war days (from 1939 on), continues to drift away from God at an alarming rate as we have shown recently.

That is the difference between Cain and Abel.

Did you know that.... people who, over the years, have visited the crypt at the Prelatic Church of Our Lady of Peace (1), where Escriva is buried, report that they are requested to move on their knees from the door of the crypt to the dark green marble tomb on which reads "THE FATHER"? (2)

Which brings to mind...

I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. [Luke 18:14]

We wonder how many Opus Deists approach the Tabernacle which contains the Holiest of Holies on their knees? "None", would be a proverbial safe bet.
