...and Their Identification in Today´s World
NOTE Added on February 18, 2003BACKGROUNDRegarding Turkey and its fidelity to the U.S. and to NATO... When miguel de Portugal traveled to Constantinople recently he observed that there was an entry fee, called Visa, in Turkey. The rates are as follow: European Union citizens: 10 Euros; Canadian citizens: 35 Euros; U.S. citizens: 95 Euros. [1 Euro is about 1.05 US Dollar]
The fee to U.S. citizens was raised from 45 to 95 Euros very recently and it is clearly noted on a sign by the "Visa" office. Such is the "favor" Turkey bestows on U.S. citizens.
Now, please proceed to review the following document and see how now it all fits perfectly together.
May those who have ears, hear; and those who have eyes, see.
Saint Paul tells us clearly how to identify the proximity of the End of These Times through his Second Epistle to the Thessalonias.
Through the Grace of God, The M+G+R Foundation may now explain the meaning of some of the Seven Trumpets and how they may be clearly identified from current news reports.
The overall Middle East Crisis, for apocalyptic purposes, started its final stretch with the Gulf War. The following Current News-Biblical relationships are most interesting.
We will be brief as we identify them. Those who wish to pursue this matter further may do so to the extent they desire. The information is available to all. We only provide the keys to the puzzle.
Situation No. 1: When the 5th Trumpet is sounded [Revelations 9:3-11] we read about some locusts which can inflict people the same torment as that inflicted by a scorpion.
***The defense mechanism of certain variety of scorpions consists on a "...neurotoxic venom which causes a a tightness of the throat, slurred speech, restlessness, sweating and vomiting, and bluing of the lips and other tissues." In certain species the venom "...kill a victim ultimately by stopping the action of the heart and lungs." 
 Bites & Stings by John Nichol, pp 57-59 and 77
Situation No. 2: When the 6th Trumpet is sounded [Revelations 9:13-19] we are told that the four angels who are bound at the banks of the Euphrates are released. Horses are also mentioned which have snakelike tails, "...with heads that inflict harm."
***The defense mechanism of certain variety of vipers and pit vipers consists of a haemotoxic venom "...which means that it breaks down the tissues of the victims. The walls of blood vessels are destroyed..." resulting in hemorrhaging.. 
 Bites & Stings by John Nichol, pp 57-59 and 77
***The "four angels" are angels of death which are released to kill third of the human race. It is interesting to note that the four countries which share the Euphrates River are Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey.
Situation No. 3: We also hear about the first bowl [Revelation 16:2] which caused "Festering and ugly sores broke out on those..." Usually festering and ugly sores are caused by bacteria.
It is interesting to note the situation which we are facing in the Middle East today. The weapons of mass destruction in the hands of Saddam Hussein and Syria are: Chemical [for the neurotoxic and haemotoxic venom] and Bacteriological [for the festering and ugly sores].
Interwoven in all of the above, as you have been advised in the past, is the nuclear holocaust and the comet-Earth collision , the fall of Babylon, etc.
 1st through 4th Trumpets [Revelation 8:7-12].
The reader should be reminded now that Israel is a nuclear power and will use it when cornered by its Middle Eastern neighbors. This will eventually draw the United States into the nuclear fray causing its fall.
You may wonder: "Why are we being informed about all of this?"
The M+G+R Foundation does so on behalf of Miguel de Portugal in response of an admonishment he received similar to that given by God to Ezechiel and related in EZ 3:17-21.
17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman to the house of Israel: and thou shalt hear the word out of my mouth, and shalt tell it them from me.
18 If, when I say to the wicked, Thou shalt surely die: thou declare it not to him, nor speak to him, that he may be converted from his wicked way, and live: the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at thy hand.
19 But if thou give warning to the wicked, and he be not converted from his wickedness, and from his evil way: he indeed shall die in his iniquity, but thou hast delivered thy soul.
20 Moreover if the just man shall turn away from his justice, and shall commit iniquity: I will lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die, because thou hast not given him warning: he shall die in his sin, and his justices which he hath done, shall not be remembered: but I will require his blood at thy hand.
21 But if thou warn the just man, that the just may not sin, and he doth not sin: living he shall live, because thou hast warned him, and thou hast delivered thy soul.
If the reader wishes to "go on denial" and continue to ignore the repeated warnings of God through Miguel de Portugal, that is, of course, the reader´s privilege. However, Miguel de Portugal will be at peace for he has done what God required of him.
In the end God will be glorified, for it is He who will allow [not cause, but allow] all of these catastrophes as an act of Mercy. We have strayed so far from the right path that only the events which are close at hand will cause us to respond and return to the right path.
