After I stumbled across the term: Great Winter Retailing Festival, I thought it ties in wonderfully with what you have said regarding Festivus. (1)
The only commercial TV broadcast which seriously makes the attempt to cast shame on the spirit of greed and commercialism with which Christmas is celebrated is the simple animated special: A Charlie Brown Christmas. (1965). It made the point of getting back to the true meaning of Christmas. (2)
"Network executives were not at all keen on several aspects of the show, forcing Schultz and Melendez to wage some serious battles to preserve their vision. The executives did not want to have Linus reciting the story of the birth of Christ from the Gospel of Luke ; the network orthodoxy of the time assumed that viewers would not want to sit through passages of the King James Version of the Bible. A story reported on the Whoopi Goldberg-hosted version of the making of the program (3) that Charles Schulz was adamant about keeping this scene in, remarking that "If we don't tell the true meaning of Christmas, who will?"
This quote from Schultz is pregnant with meaning.........
Perhaps I should just let Linus do the talking (3)
Christ be with you!

Here is a blog post from LewRockwell.com (1), a libertarian site that hosts many of the writers who share the ‘alternate view of reality”. As such, it is meant much more casually than the columns that are posted daily, but it puts things in exactly the language that you have been predicting for all these years. (2)
The Logical Conclusion
Posted by Charles Featherstone at December 24, 2008 10:49 AM
With all of this talk about stimulating the economy through gummint borrowing and consumption, and the likes of Krugman saying that even more need be spent (echoing Republicans who dismiss the New Deal by saying the Depression didn't really end until WWII, thus inadvertently promoting even more gummint action), how long will it be before someone decides that the United States (or NATO) needs to wage a nice, long, destructive war? I don't mean a war on the scale of Iraq or Vietnam, but rather, a global war, well-managed and destructive enough to prompt all kinds of government control, one that will draft millions of men and women, a war that needs infantry and not smart bombs? Because war as it is waged now needs neither mass armies nor mass production.
Even worse, it is possible someone could suggest a limited nuclear war. After all, if stimulus is needed to prompt consumption, and destruction is a good way to do that, what better way than a small-scale, well-managed nuclear exchange -- between, say, the US and China, or the US and some alleged "rogue state" -- that would afford for massive enough reconstruction in the US and elsewhere to "spur consumption."
I'm not suggesting this will happen, I'm suggesting it could. Or at least someone will talk about it openly. Especially if 2009 will be, as I fear it will, a nearly full-scale rerun of 1930.
(2) Since 1991 to be exact. Mercifully, had it not been for President Clinton's cooperation with Heaven, it would have happened ten years ago.

Who is Maitreya? In a nut shell - Maitreya is claimed to be an individual waited by all faiths under different names, Maitreya is the Christ to Christians, the Imam Mahdi to Muslims, Krishna to Hindus, the Messiah to Jews, and Maitreya Buddha to Buddhists. He is the World Teacher for all, religious or not, an educator in the broadest sense.In miguel de Portugal's language: The False Christ or a False Christ stand-in
The reader is invited to review an article (1) - just released through his front organization - Share International - which we find quite disturbing.
After we have amply shown how the Creation Theory and Evolution Theory come together; actually, depend on each other for their validity (2), now Maitreya, as reflected in the article they have released, has picked up on that and is taking possession of that knowledge given to miguel de Portugal by God.
The timing for us to find out about this situation could not be better since God has revealed to miguel additional information which encompasses even greater - were that possible - details of humanity's history with concrete physical proofs. Information which we were getting ready to publish in our Domains; something that we will not do now. Most likely such information will be dispensed to those in our various Mailing Lists as of December 19th.

From (Mr.) TJ @ US - Published on December 18th, 2008 [Observance of Mary's Expectation]
After viewing the referenced to video clip (1) I would like to make a couple of observations:
· The FBI trainer she was talking about was himself preparing dried food for his family, and other measures indicating he was afraid for them.
· If the intention was simply to corral or worse, all [fill in the blank group of people], then he, being an insider and behind the operation, would not feel so threatened.
· If it was a major nuclear exchange, as per your scenario, I don't imagine it would be pre planned this extensively, yet:
· The FBI trainer was aware, either vaguely or not-so-vaguely, of a threat to civilization that is known in the government.
A cosmic impact would fit well with that scenario, would be predictable well in advance, and I would expect this kind of preparation for it (to an extent even accept it, with the caveat that this power will certainly be abused).
A corroborating observation comes from the fact that there used to be a non-stop airing of cosmic-impact TV shows on the various “educational” stations. I would often watch them, because it somehow put things in perspective for me, perhaps I just realized the earth exists at God's pleasure. They have completely disappeared from the air for some time now, at least in the US. I'm guessing it has been longer than 4 or 5 months.
From (Mrs.) IW @ US - Published on December 16th, 2008
I wanted to write something to respond to your Points to Ponder question of last week regarding the post Step 17 situation in the world, but had some other things that kept me from doing it, so I hope it is not too late to give a couple of thoughts:
Since Jesus and Mary say "not since the beginning of creation," I think the end of times tribulations might make the world without form and void, just as it was when the Holy Spirit moved about the face of the earth and God began His days of creation. A couple of things make me think this... that is a nuclear war or a comet strike would cause death to plant matter, and water turning to blood, both of these things would change the respiration in the atmosphere - like the breath of life. So, I do think that God will have to again breathe life into the planet in His recreation. My imagining is that God will restore a part of the earth to a Garden of Eden like setting, but remember reading that people will be able to look upon the corpses and ashes, so I don't know if there will be a place of destruction that remains visible....
As far as humanity, I think that the people who survive all the tribulations will have been either prisoners or refugees, and that they will be gathered up by God, and will very much recognize that they were like Adam and Eve, taken from people behaving like savages or animals in their cruelty, or else they will be like the Israelites at the time they were liberated from Egypt, that is very grateful. I think they will be holy people, having lived through all the chastisement by prayer and risking their lives to help others, but I also think that they will be very traumatized from their experiences (my idea of poor in spirit). Whether they were rich or poor before, all the people will have had similar experiences during the tribulations, so that they will have the same mercy toward each other and be very much able to show love and help, since they all have the same scars.
I think they will see Jesus face-to-face, know that He rescued them. I think He will care for them Himself and have His Ministers, the angels or resurrected saints, to care for them. I see it as a time of great healing, and people will grow healthier and healthier in their hearts and souls. Also, think it will be a simple time... no technology, cars, things, things, things, although I don't think it will be strictly communal type living, since I read that people will build their own houses and occupy them and tend their flocks and fields, etc.
That is just a picture from my imagination without definite scripture references to back it up, but I did want to give it a try off the top of my head.

God be with you!
This news item (1) reminds me of a combo of several pseudo-science/occult areas which agencies and contractors of the US government have been allegedly researching for decades. The related topics include: astral projection, remote viewing, and similar - which also have reference to the concept of bi-location and shape-shifting.
That is what came to mind when I read this.......
(1) News Quote
Researchers using closed-circuit televisions to create an illusion have made volunteers virtually swap bodies, even making women believe they were in a man's body and vice-versa.
The experiment, reported in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS ONE on Tuesday, shows it is possible to manipulate the human mind to create the perception of having another body, the Swedish researchers said.......
"This effect is so robust that, while experiencing being in another person's body, a participant can face his or her biological body and shake hands with it without breaking the illusion," they wrote.

In reference to your request in the December 2nd Points To Ponder page (2) - Quite honestly, though I have thought about this topic countless times since my childhood, I don't feel that I am substantially closer to the truth than I was then. I fear that my thinking on the matter may be somewhat uninspired, so at the risk of exposing my ignorance here goes:
After Step No. 17 I assume that the world would be physically very different from what we know it today. Whole landscapes would be changed (mountains where there once were plains, new rivers and lakes), many cities gone, it would basically be a “reset”, a return to pre-Industrial times.
As for the people, they would live as Christ intended His disciples to live. Loving and caring for each other and God's creation. It would be a society where you wouldn't be afraid to leave your door unlocked at night. Where you could be sure of help from your fellow man, should you need it. A society where God's existence is more real than gravity; where there is no doubt, just complete faith. A world where violence is never an option, and whose laws are God's laws. Crime would be practically non-existent. There would be no need for armies or opaque financial systems, bartering would be more common between communities, and no one would be allowed to want for anything that they need.
Politically, I see it as a time similar to the Biblical Judges. No presidents, kings or prime ministers. Nations would simply be a matter of geography, but everyone would be considered as one people, God's people. Our children and grandchildren will grow up in a society where everybody truly cares for them, where they will be treated as the treasures that they are. It will be a glorious time, where people will see God's hand in every aspect of their lives, and His name will be in their hearts and on their lips.
You have my permission to post all or part of my comments should you choose to. You remain in my prayers.
Yours in Christ.(Mr.) IW

Have you ever wondered.... how is the world and humanity going to look like after Step No. 17 (*) considering that Jesus clearly stated - and Mary echoed in recent Apparitions - "For in those days shall be such tribulations, as were not from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, neither shall be." [Mark 13:19] ?
Now, if one couples that clearly stated forecast with another very coherent and post-Step No. 17 "State of the World" statement: Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. [Matthew 5: 5] - What do we get?
We invite our readers to drop a note to us with your view of that post-Step No. 17 period. If we choose to publish any one of the the submissions it will be with the writers consent.

From (Mr.) WMP @ US - Published on December 5th, 2008 [Devotion of First Friday of the Month]
In this down turned economy God has blessed me with a job inspecting houses. With all of these foreclosures I have more work than I know what to do with. With equal credit going to you and my local pastor.
What credit is that? Challenging me to give a percentage off the top of the money I earn to God. The rest God allows me to keep.
God has not let me outdo Him. It seems the more I give the more I am making. I have more than doubled my income in these last 4 months than what I made the previous 8 months. I sponsor 2 children and one elderly person, on a monthky basis, in foreign countries. I also give to my church, but I want God's money to be used for the best possible results for the most amount of souls. As long as God allows me to have this type of success I will continue to assist you in your work. I only wish I had taken God's challenge to try to outdo Him (and fail) much sooner.
I would like to ask for your prayers so that my wife and I can strengthen our marriage for the coming tribulations. I have been informed in the areas that I have failed to live in God's Will. Proper evangelization to my wife and other family members is one of them.
In addition to the above mentioned offering I am using more time, money and effort to prepare for those that have not awakened, yet.
I receive much comfort and peace through your efforts. I think that I have gained an insight (God's Grace) as to the meaning of not trying to save my life, but to lose it. Those of us who try to preserve our lives here on earth, ultimately, will lose the eternal one God has for us. If I lose my life on earth, holding nothing back from God, I will save my life, eternal life. (1)
God has blessed you and I feel so inspired to be a part of God's plan for you.
God bless you and keep you always
John 12 : 25 ... He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, keepeth it unto life eternal.
Mark 8 : 35 For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel, shall save it.
Matthew 10: 39 He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it.
Matthew 16 : 25 For he that will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall find it.
Luke 9 : 24 For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it; for he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall save it.
Luke 9 : 25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, and cast away himself?
Luke 17 : 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose it, shall preserve it.

Is it possible that, in addition to the symbolism noted on the November 25th Did You Know That....? page - there are another superimposed symbolism about the Moon-Venus-Jupiter triangle? Maybe it is also a reminder of the authenticity and importance of the message of La Salette.
As our Beloved Mother said in 1846 to the shepherds of La Salette :
"The Church will be in eclipse, the world will be in dismay. But now Enoch and Eli will come, filled with the spirit of God."
At the central day of the conjunction, the Moon will be in 15% crescent, thus obscure, near to darkness. The choreography is complete if we pay attention to all the details in the news report :
Finally, look up from the eyepiece and run your eyes across the Moon. Do you see a ghostly image of the full Moon inside the bright horns of the crescent? That's called "Earthshine" or sometimes "the da Vinci glow" because Leonardo da Vinci was the first person to explain it: Sunlight hits Earth and ricochets to the Moon, casting a sheen of light across the dark lunar terrain.
To read: the (lack of) light of the world in dismay reflects on the Church in eclipse (not enough light to heal)
And, finally, another superimposed symbolism:
The Moon (Holy Virgin Mary) has provisionally dimmed Her light (time of prophecy) allowing Venus (Eli) and Jupiter (Enoch) to shine in Her company. As a reminder of Who is the Queen of Prophets, on these days Jupiter and Venus will pass / have passed behind the Moon .
