From (Mrs.) IW @ US

[our comments/response within the text in blue letters]

Today's (7/28) Divine Encouragement (1) was right on target for me. I have a problem with comparing what I do to what others do and then I think, believe, that I don't do much.

That is a favorite trick of satan.

I need to just let the spirit of God flow through me, without any blockages.

And that is why satan is trying to avoid by turning on the 'guilt trip'.

I went to the update board. The true picture of Christ on the Cross, was very hard to look at so I basically didn't. Thank you though, for making sure we understand what our sin, did to Him and what He endured for us. He loves us so much!

That picture that you saw is mild compared to what He showed miguel de Portugal in his personal warning. I do not remember suffering so much in my life.

I must say, the amount of times you have contacted the church administration, is mind boggling. They definitely cannot say they did not know this information. I appreciate your obedience to God, as it was for His children that you sent out the warnings. Unfortunately, they just seemed to move on with their agenda and not God's.

The Mercy of God demanded that those letter be sent. He was giving them one last chance to turn around. Now, most of them will have any excuse before the Throne of Justice.

Locally, I found out about the Divine Mercy through a add in the newspaper. A local Catholic church was holding the observance and it was open to the public. I never heard about this observance or the Chaplet from my local church, whose name is Our Lady of Mercy! That local church even opened up every Thursday for a 3:00 prayer hour, for about 3 years. My husband and I attended, as our schedules allowed back then. They still hold the yearly observance as do a few other churches.

We learned by sheer providence about it around 1988 - since it seems that all that is good most of the "Evangelizers" keep hidden from the faithful. The impact was so great, and the confirmation of what I was experiencing already was so real, that since then we have been observing the Hour of Mercy every day accompanied by the specific prayers that Jesus requested for that hour.

I also noticed the number of times you wrote to Cardinal Bernardin. I believe this is the same Cardinal that was the Archbishop of Cincinnati, of which my city is part of, and he then was moved to Chicago. If my memory serves me correctly, he moved priests around the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, who were accused of pedophilia.

The state of the Archdiocese and the problems in my local parish could be traced back to Bernardin. What a shame. And look at Chicago now. It wasn't like that when I grew up. So I have lived in two Archdioceses that have been directly affected by Bernardin and I can see the results.

No; the letters were sent to Bernardin Cardinal Gantin who was the Prefect for the Congregation of Bishops.

The one you mention was Joseph Cardinal Bernardin - he was in Cincinnati from 1972 - 1982 and in Chicago 1982 - 1986. However, he seems to have a very good record when it comes to sexual abuse. According to Wikipedia and other publications:

Archbishop Joseph Bernardin was among the first U.S. Cardinals or Bishops to confront the issue of sexual abuse by clergy. He also adapted a strong stance on sexual abuse cases within the clergy by implementing the strongest, most comprehensive policy concerning priests accused of sexual misconduct with minors. Bernardin’s reforms concerning this issue soon served as a model for other dioceses across the nation.

That does not mean that he was not responsible for the spiritual decay that you witnessed in the two Archdioceses you lived within.

I am glad that God saw to it that I spent 10 years attending a Baptist church, learning scripture, before He directed me to return to the Catholic Church. I probably would have been lost now, if not for that time away.

Thanks be to God! He will never abandon His chosen ones.

As for me, please continue to keep me in your prayers. I have to have a biopsy on my breast. I want to keep my eye on Jesus and not on a possible problem.

You may be assured of our prayers as well as those who, among our readers, are moved to pray for your well-being.

Peace and Blessings to You!

Mrs. IW

Thank you for your kind words and your sharing your thoughts with us.

Have you heard that.... the ousted Vatican bank president raps Pope on Amoris Laetitia (1)

In an unusually blunt criticism of Pope Francis, the former president of the Vatican bank has written that in Amoris Laetitia, the Pontiff is in effect saying, “I can contradict myself if I want to.”

Ettore Gotti Tedeschi (2), who was ousted in May 2012 from his post as president of the Institute for Religious Works, ripped into the apostolic exhortation in an essay for the Italian journal La Verita. He said that the Pope is intent on creating a “new Catholic morality,” in contradiction to previous Church teachings. He also faults the Pope for refusing to meet with the four cardinals who have pleaded for clarification of the document.

Gotti Tedeschi notes that in Amoris Laetitia the Pope writes: “No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!” Here the former Vatican banker argues that according to Pope Francis, “eternal damnation would seem to have become a heresy.”

Comments: It looks like the Opus Dei is losing control of Francis. This situation reminds us when Bush Jr. was placed in the White House to continue Bush Sr.'s work - which God interrupted through Bill Clinton. They also lost control of him and had a very hard time to getting done what they needed to get done.

Regarding Bishop Paprocki's Decree covering same sex "marriage" and related pastoral issues....

If one reads the text objectively one will realize that the key undercurrent of his decree is the avoidance of scandal - avoiding the promotion and ecclesiastical tacit approval of what is clearly contrary to Divine Law. Most Christians do not realize, or want to admit, the gravity of causing scandal.

But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. [Matthew 18: 6-7]

The qualifier - "These little ones that believe in me" - does not only refer to children but to all of those who innocently place their faith in what their Evangelizers teach by word and deed. Considering that I am only accountable to God, if you saw how extremely careful I am to avoid any behavior that - even without being scandalous - would cause any scandal, you would know how really serious this issue is.

Tragically - the most damage caused by the already legendary sexual abuse by the clergy scandal, was the cover up by the Hierarchy. If the Hierarchy had acted swiftly and transparently in every case, the faith, believe it or not, would have been strengthened. Whereas the damage their behavior has caused can only now be repaired by God.

Have you heard that.... Mr.Trump ended the tradition of celebrating the end of Ramadan at White House. (1)

President Donald Trump decided against hosting the annual Ramadan feast at the White House this year, effectively ending a two-decade tradition which began in 1996 with First Lady Hillary Clinton.

An iftar, or break-fast, feast, which Muslims celebrate every evening at sundown during the month of Ramadan, was held regularly throughout the administrations of President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama.

Comment: This is an example of the political version of avoiding scandal considering the negativism towards Muslim as the result of the brutal behavior of just a few.

Did you know that.... the Golem (1) of the antiChrist (2) may be planning a new Mass format that could be offered by Catholics, Lutherans and Anglicans?

At this point it is a qualified rumor with only one original source, but it is so coherent with what the lamb look alike who speaks like a dragon [Rev. 13:11] has done so far, that it is quite credible. Will let you know if it is confirmed by truly reliable sources.

You should be aware that.... in the past two weeks there were 770 earthquakes in Yellowstone Park. (1)

769 earthquakes were recorded at Yellowstone over the last two weeks, raising concerns among seismologists that a catastrophic eruption may be brewing, and could hit sooner rather than later.

One quake measured over four on the Richter scale, five measured in the magnitude three range, 64 in the magnitude two range, and the other 699 have been measured at magnitude one or less.

Researchers from the University of Utah at the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO), said to the Star Valley Independent, “This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years,” adding, “Seismic activity at volcanoes can signal an eruption is due to take place, although predicting exactly when a volcano will erupt is, at present, impossible.”

Comment: Not surprising. Just keeping you informed. God is keeping all His options on the table.

Which options will He choose? It all depends on how much we pray and sacrifice seeking that as we approach the climax of the chastisement suffering is reduced while what we know as Divine Justice is dispensed, as Prophecy is fulfilled.

Time magazine believes and the National Catholic Register confirms that "The future of the priesthood looks more hopeful".

We suggest that you review the full article, which is not very long, and you will see how far gone the Roman Catholic Church is.

The situation was already disastrous during the time (1985 - 1991) I was quite involved in the Roman Catholic Church in Houston, Texas - in five parishes plus a Catholic University - with plenty of seminarians around. Now it is even worse!

Imagine (!), the article describes the post-Vatican-II clergy as "reserved men, removed and dogmatic, who present themselves at the lectern to guide their congregations."

Reserved men, removed, dogmatic? So reserved, removed and dogmatic that back then I had to write to the local Bishop, whom I knew, and warned him about what I was witnessing in many areas of his Diocese. We will spare you the details.

Not to mention the Seminarians who referred to us who adored the Blessed Sacrament as "cookie worshippers" and young priests wearing such brief shorts in public (called in those days "hot pants") that I did not know how it was mechanically/physically possible.

(sarcasm on) Maybe I was in a parallel universe.... (sarcasm off)

Blessedly The Remaining Old Testament Prophecies.... Will Finally be fulfilled, and soon.

We read.... in an allegedly reputable news instrument that Mr. Trump had admitted, via his Twitter account, that Russia intervened, via hacking, in the 2016 election. We decided to check the veracity and validity of the news. Following is what we found:

Donald J. Trump Verified account @realDonaldTrump   Jun 22  (in chronological order)

Former Homeland Security Advisor Jeh Johnson is latest top intelligence official to state there was no grand scheme between Trump & Russia.

By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin. Why didn't they stop them?

...Why did Democratic National Committee turn down the DHS offer to protect against hacks (long prior to election). It's all a big Dem HOAX!

...Why did the DNC REFUSE to turn over its Server to the FBI, and still hasn't? It's all a big Dem scam and excuse for losing the election!

We failed to find his admission. Once again we can see that attacks on Mr. Trump - whom I dislike even more than before (*) - continue to be non-stop and that the falsification of the news continues to increase.

As we have warned some of the media (WP and NYT): One day Mr. Trump will get up on the proverbial wrong side of the bed and the proverbial fur will fly.... and it will be irreversible.
(*) Personal likes and dislikes should not interfere with the truth.

Have you heard that..... Mexico was ranked the second deadliest country in the world in 2016? (1)

Mexico was the second deadliest conflict in the world last year, but it hardly registered in the international headlines. As Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan dominated the news agenda, Mexico's drug wars claimed 23,000 lives during 2016 -- second only to Syria, where 50,000 people died as a result of the civil war.

"This is all the more surprising, considering that the conflict deaths [in Mexico] are nearly all attributable to small arms," said John Chipman, chief executive and director-general of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which issued its annual survey of armed conflict on Tuesday.

Comments: Do you know how long is the border that the US and Mexico share? 1,989 miles (3,201 km) according to Wikipedia.

A wall certainly is not a practical answer. A wall, unless heavily guarded, is easy to overcome. However, it seems that the border security should be increased significantly. But then again, The Remaining Old Testament Prophecies will finally be fulfilled, and soon, thus, wall or no wall, it will not really matter.

From miguel de Portugal

In a recent Divine Encouragement we wrote:

It is so easy to find that narrow gate! All we have to do is believe His Word and strive to live it. He even helps us when our faith falters. What more could we ask for?

Perhaps what I need to ask for is more patience to tolerate the hundred of millions who proudly call themselves Christians - even some proudly proclaim their cradle Catholicism - and their very last concern and desire is to express Him, and to show His Love to the world. They do not even try!

In order not to cause scandal we want to make sure that our family understands what is meant when I speak of "personal impatience" and use the term "stupid", as an adjective.

On Impatience

We have no patience whatsoever for those who claims a level of faith that is not reflected at all in their behavior; such behavior is equivalent to blaspheme.

We have a tremendous amount of patience for those who acknowledge their shortcomings - spiritual as well as material - and are struggling to overcome them. I have been brought to sympathetic tears when facing some poor soul in a titanic battle to overcome a serious shortcoming. Of course, such tremendous amount of patience results in an equivalent level of mercy/forgiveness towards the individual in question.

Of course, I cannot claim any credit for the above.... I learned it from Whom I strive to serve.

On Stupidity

An individual who, through ignorance or intellectual limitations, acts incorrectly is not to be considered "stupid" - ever! However, ignorance (on purpose) is not bliss, paraphrasing a very popular saying. Such behavior is a perfect example of "stupidity". The most perfect example is when an individual persists on living on denial.

Now, there is a variety of denial that may be healthy for certain individuals and which we call "managed denial".

A perfect example of engaging in "managed denial" would be when someone, who is fully aware of the times that we are living through, are doing all that is in their power to prepare for it - which can be resumed by: placing one's spiritual house in order as one strives to draw closer to God every day - but do not intellectually dwell on the seriousness of these times frequently because their psychological make up would trigger unhealthy and crippling behavior such as depression, despondency, etc.

With that said, let us review five distinct states which cause the level of Divine Mercy granted to vary. Of course, there is one source of Divine Mercy - God - but what determines its level is what we are addressing now.

The whole concept is based on His Word From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. [Luke 12:48], among others.

At the time of Judgment this is what God will look at before dispensing the level of Mercy required:

A. An individual who never heard of God, or His Person in Jesus. Thus had little or no concept of sin.
B. An individual who sincerely does not believe that certain behavior is sinful.
C. An individual who knows that certain behavior is sinful, but will engage in it any way and without the least bit of remorse or concern for its consequences.
D. An individual who leads a sinful life, is aware of it yet is sincerely striving to overcome such lifestyle.
E. An individual who leads a sinful life but counts on Divine Mercy at the end - like the five virgins with the lamps without oil - therefore makes no effort whatsoever to improve.

There are many shades even within those five cases and am sure that I have overlooked other categories. That is why I am so glad that I do not have to judge anyone - that is only for God to do. Your and mine only responsibility is to, through prayer and example, move all to a "Case D" state and then help them in their effort to overcome such lifestyle.

As we have said before..... God will use any mechanism that is coherent with His Laws to get key information to His children... and what we share with you now is no exception.

We have shown that the level of energy released by earthquakes steadily rose from 1980 to 2010. We have tried to update that information but every attempt has failed in showing a concrete trend.... then, God stepped in. Allow us to explain for the Glory of God....

For several years we have been receiving from the National Earthquake Information Center - U.S. Geological Survey - reports about earthquakes occurring throughout the world.

When we signed up for such notifications we requested to receive notices of earthquakes occurring anywhere in the world, with a magnitude of 5.0 or greater on the Richter scale and not to report related aftershocks.

As the reports came in, we glanced at them and filed them - period! The other day, out of the proverbial blue, I felt that we should group them by years so we did. The years for which we had complete listings were for 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

It was then that I got God's alarming message!

Number of Reports (earthquakes over 5.0)
2017 (so far)

...and that is what woke me up, so to speak. In five and half months of the year 2017 we have had more over 5.0 earthquakes than in any of the three previous full years.

Since we failed in our efforts to update the information, God stepped in and answered our question leaving no room for doubts. The earthquakes have more than significantly increased for the year 2017. If we prorate the current numbers to a possible end of the year 2017, the number of significant earthquakes will be double! We suspect that if we look at the number of earthquakes below the 5.0 Richter level, the numbers would reflect a much, much worse scenario.

So... let us continue to pray....  ....and not panic.

Have you heard that.... Russia is to treat US jets in Syria as 'targets' after America guns down first regime warplane?

Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are present as "targets" amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.

The country's defence ministry said the change in position would apply to all aircraft, including those operating as part of the US-backed coalition.

It will also suspend a hotline between Russia and the US set up to prevent mid-air collisions.

The ministry said in a statement: "All kinds of airborne vehicles, including aircraft and UAVs of the international coalition detected to the west of the Euphrates River will be tracked by the Russian SAM systems as air targets."

The warning followed after a US F-18 Super Hornet shot down a Syrian army SU-22 jet on Sunday in the countryside southwest of Raqqa.

Comments: Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock.....

How many millions of people, while in purgatory, will be thinking thus: "Why didn't we believe him? Why didn't we do what he told us to do - Pray, Pray and Pray More - to soften the blows of the End of Times Tragedy?

Such is life. As long as we fulfill the Will of God, we simply have to disconnect from the misery of those who could have done something and did not. They have had the opportunity to hear about us for the last 19 years that we have been on-line.

Allow us to point out to our dear readers the level of blindness and absolute ignorance regarding the political reality of the world of some of the most high profiled world leaders.

British Prime Minister May chose to reinforce her position to exit from the European Union (Brexit) - a position that was already strong - by forcing and early election.... and she and her government almost ended up on the streets!

That poor and completely disoriented woman (1) had no idea that the fathers of the European Union were not about to let her torpedo their centuries long dreams now since, for them, literally "it's now or never". She is in a very weak position and completely unprepared to extirpate the European Union cancer from Great Britain.

If that is the state of high profiled political leaders, imagine the state of the normally confused and disoriented masses. As we do not tire of reminding all: Only those who have ears to hear, will hear; and those who have eyes to see, will see. The rest will be blotted out of the world. Neither education, nationality nor race will determine those who will see and hear, only God Will!

Remember when...... President Trump was trolled because he referred to the immigration problem in Sweden? Take a look at the most recent news (1) on the issue.

Eight more areas in Sweden added to list of so-called 'no-go zones.

A new report from the Swedish police lists eight additional areas as being especially vulnerable," where it is more difficult for law enforcement and other emergency services to do their job.

In 2015, the Swedish police released a report describing 53 districts throughout the country as vulnerable," and 15 listed as “especially vulnerable." These neighborhoods may also host violent religious extremism, and locals don’t report crime to police for fear of retribution.

These areas, which often host a large immigrant or foreign-born population, have been described as “no-go zones” by media. But this label has been rejected by the Swedish police. But for some service providers at least, the term “no-go zones” is more literal.

In March, the president of Sweden's ambulance union called for enhanced security for his personnel when working in the so-called “no-go zones,” saying first responders need “special” military-grade equipment to withstand the dangers of the mainly migrant-populated areas. And in April, the government-owned postal service PostNord has halted mail delivery to some addresses near the troubled Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby, where a large-scale riot took place earlier this year.

Comments: Obviously he wasn't inventing the situation.

We use DuckDuckGo as a search engine instead of Google. They frequently send educational information about internet security and privacy. We felt that you might find the following mailing as interesting and useful as we did.

In our last email, we showed how to delete your Google Search History.

This limits the information that Google has to sell to advertisers. But, they likely still have an advertising profile on you.

We've mentioned before that as an advertising company Google has trackers on more than 2.2 million websites and 1 million apps. They collect information about you as you surf across the net and use this to compile your "Ad Settings."

This is really just a way for them to sell your profile of interests to advertisers for top dollar.

How to Disable Ad Settings:

Navigate to Google's Ad Settings page.

Scroll down, and toggle "Ads Based on Your Interest" to off.

Then, scroll down more, and click the blue button to "opt-out of signed out ads." Turn off the toggles on that page too.

Tracking is creepy, but luckily, you've switched to the Duck Side, and so now your searches are completely anonymous. DuckDuckGo protects your search history from everyone — even us!

By the way - we do recommend DuckDuckGo. We have used it for over two years and are very pleased with it.

Have you heard that..... Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said that U.S. won't default on its debt? (1)

As Congress weighs lifting or suspending the U.S.'s debt ceiling, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Friday dismissed any possibility that the U.S. would default on its debt.

"We'll be fine," said Mnuchin at a joint press conference with Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau in Ottawa.

"This is not an issue, but I don't want to leave any doubt that we have plans and backup plans," said the former Goldman Sachs banker following a one-day bilateral meeting between the U.S. and Canada.

When asked what those backup plans would be, Mnuchin referred to them as "Treasury secretary super powers."

Comment: The fact that such a subject matter was broached in a joint press conference gives much food for thought. As the saying goes, where there is smoke, there is a fire.... and since we have been expecting that to happen, mentioning it in a high profile press conference means that we must be close to it.

Ramadan prayers...... at a site of a Virgin Mary statue triggered an outrage in Spain? (1)

A Muslim prayer gathering at the site of a Virgin Mary statue has sparked outrage among politicians in the Spanish city of Granada, with a far-right party calling on Catholics to respond with a "night of prayer" at the same site.

The controversial gathering took place on Saturday evening, when dozens of Muslims prayed together in Jardines del Triunfo (Gardens of Triumph) park before breaking their daily Ramadan fast.

Although the event was sanctioned by City Hall and welcomed by Mayor Francisco Cuenca as an act promoting Granada as a "city of co-existence and tolerance," others took issue with the chosen location, because Jardines del Triunfo is the site of a Virgin Mary statue which is cherished by Catholics in the city.

Comment: We sent the Mayor of Granada our document which discusses the importance of Mary in Islam in the hopes that he could use it to get out of the political turmoil caused by such event while, at the same time, educate the citizens of Granada about Mary and Islam.

The Gospel read in yesterday's Mass was from Matthew 5:17-19:

Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Most remember this passage because Jesus clearly states that He is: ....not come to abolish them (the law, or the prophets) but to fulfill them, while missing and/or misunderstanding other very important messages to be found in: anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

We can see many reasoning that whether one breaks one or several commandments the Kingdom of Heaven is for all. That is, they assume/conclude that indeed there is no hell. Wrong!

Jesus is referring about only those who are born and who are destined to the Kingdom of God - something only known to God.

Secondly, the Kingdom of God is not a "socialist state" since some will be called least in the kingdom of heaven - while others will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Who has not heard that Mr. Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord? Precious few!

Who has heard that if the terms for the US in the Paris Climate Accord are negotiated in a more equitable manner, the US will be part of it again? Again, precious few!

Who has heard that the European Union summarily rejected Mr. Trump's proposal for a more equitable accord? Less than a handful among the precious few who knew about Mr. Trump's proposal.

Before we continue let us remind one and all - again! - that we are not pro-Trump nor anti-Trump. We are strictly pro-God which is being pro-Truth. With that said....

We stumbled upon a news report in the Independent Sentinel - a media outlet which we do not recall ever hearing about - which we recommend for your review. Based on the knowledge that God has granted me about where is the world 'coming from and going to', the article could have been written using inside information that we have been publishing for years.

To give you an idea.... of where this 'new and improved' Mrs. Merkel's Europe is....

The City Hall of Rome has issued an ordinance which carries fines of 40€ through 240€ (about 45 to 270 US $) for its violation.

In a nutshell.... The ordinance forbids the following acts in those world famous fountains which may be found everywhere in Rome:

(a) holding pic-nics
(b) climbing into, wade in the waters and climbing up on the works of art central to the fountain, nor behave in any manner that is not compatible with the normal use of public property.
(c) throwing any kind of liquid into the fountain waters nor any object - except the traditional coins.
(d) doing one's laundry in the fountain water.
(e) bathing one's pets in it
(f) allowing one's pet to drink from the fountain.

But violators should not despair.... the ordinance expires in October - when all tourists have gone home. Then they can go back to such an 'illuminated' new European behavior.

It used to be La Dolce Vita (1), now it seems to be La Filthy Vita!

By the way.... have you noticed that, according to what we read in the press regarding the ordinance, one may still urinate in them! Oh, wait! That must be what they refer as "other liquids" in item (c) above. Now they will have to wait until October to once again freely urinate in the Fountain of Trevi!

Lord have Mercy and get back here as soon as possible and wipe the slate clean once and for all!

Striving to live fully what He taught us....

...I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.

For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.
[Matthew 5: 44-48]

The first reading for last Saturday's Mass [Tb 12:1, 5-15, 20] contained so many truths that we feel compelled to reproduce it below:

....Tobiah.... called Raphael and said, "Take as your wages half of all that you have brought back, and go in peace."

Raphael called the two men aside privately and said to them:

"Thank God! Give him the praise and the glory. Before all the living, acknowledge the many good things he has done for you, by blessing and extolling his name in song. Honor and proclaim God's deeds, and do not be slack in praising him. A king's secret it is prudent to keep, but the works of God are to be declared and made known.

Praise them with due honor. Do good, and evil will not find its way to you.

Prayer and fasting are good, but better than either is almsgiving accompanied by righteousness. A little with righteousness is better than abundance with wickedness.

It is better to give alms than to store up gold; for almsgiving saves one from death and expiates every sin. Those who regularly give alms shall enjoy a full life; but those habitually guilty of sin are their own worst enemies.

"I will now tell you the whole truth; I will conceal nothing at all from you. I have already said to you, 'A king's secret it is prudent to keep, but the works of God are to be made known with due honor.' I can now tell you that when you, Tobit, and Sarah prayed, it was I who presented and read the record of your prayer before the Glory of the Lord; and I did the same thing when you used to bury the dead.

When you did not hesitate to get up and leave your dinner in order to go and bury the dead, I was sent to put you to the test. At the same time, however, God commissioned me to heal you and your daughter-in-law Sarah. I am Raphael, one of the seven angels who enter and serve before the Glory of the Lord."

"So now get up from the ground and praise God. Behold, I am about to ascend to him who sent me; write down all these things that have happened to you."

I am no ashamed to admit that as I read Raphael's words during Mass I wept.... just as I am doing right now again.

Please, please - for the sake of your soul and that of others - believe his words - they are absolutely true, through the Grace of God I know that first hand.

From Francis @ The Vatican

‘God cannot be God without man’! (1)

Comments: Francis was speaking from a written text at his Wednesday general audience.

In context, Francis said:

Dear brothers and sisters, we are never alone. We can be far, hostile; we can even say we are ‘without God.’ But Jesus Christ's Gospel reveals to us that God cannot be without us: He will never be a God ‘without man’; it is He who cannot be without us, and this is a great mystery! God cannot be God without man: this is a great mystery!

If we did not know what we do about him and his role, the greatest mystery for me would be how was he ever ordained to the priesthood!

June 10th

From (Mrs.) IW @ US

[Note: Respecting the privacy of the contributor, who has authorized the publication of her letter, we have changed all the individual's names except for the book's author.]

The 8th of June marked the 50th anniversary of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty. My husband, Bill, forwarded to me and others the link to a summary of the events that occurred that terrible day. You may find the link at the end of this e-mail.

For the past 10 years at the US Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association's (NCVA) reunion, a retired Marine officer named Brad Underwood has been present. He was on board the Liberty when it was attacked. He saw his best friend literally incinerated before his eyes by one of the torpedoes that hit the ship. He himself suffered from burns and numerous wounds caused by shrapnel.

To this day, he suffers from the aftermath of these wounds. I found his overall condition to have deteriorated a lot this past year. His wife, Louise, has spoken to me about what it's been like the past 50 years living with a man who is “driven” to make the truth known. It's not been an easy journey...

The cover-up pertaining to Israel's true role in the attack continues to this day. Bill and I first met Brad in St. Louis, MO, in 2007. He was at a table with USS Liberty information. My husband has always had a great interest in anything that pertained to the Liberty, as a good friend of his was one of those who perished that day. As it turns out, once he and Brad began talking, they realized the friend both had lost that day, was the same one.

Brad broke down and wept tears of sheer rage and helplessness. His words to us were how angry he still was after 40 years of the attack. The book “Assault on the USS Liberty” by Lt. Commander James Ennis, Jr. (wounded officer on the ship), reveals the truth and the extent of the lies and the absolute hell the survivors have been subjected to all these years.

Would you be so kind as to remember in your prayers, Brad and all other survivors of the USS Liberty and their families, as well as to pray for the souls of those who perished and their loved ones? On their behalf, I thank you.

In His Holy Name,


Be so kind to remember them in our prayers? It will be an honor! Not only that, we have used the information found in the link that you sent and prepared a Guest Document - Infamy at Sea. Since our audience spans over 100 countries, the truth of such tragedy may reach further than it has already.

Although the Israeli forces were the ones committed such crimes, the greatest responsibility falls upon the U.S. politicians and key military commanders who allowed it to happen and then, shamelessly, covered up the truth.

Nothing escapes the Eye of God and we would not want to be in the shoes of those responsible for this atrocity, and many, many others, while standing before the Throne of Judgment.

Thank you for sharing this very personal story with all of us, authorizing us to publish it and giving us an opportunity to be another channel to further expose this tragedy.

From (Mrs.) GC @ US

Will you please state your position and/or thoughts regarding what is called Zionism?

Thank you and God Bless!


Thank you for asking.

First of all let's define the term Zionism:

Zionism is the national movement of the Jewish people that supports the re-establishment of a Jewish homeland in the territory defined as the historic Land of Israel. (1)

The problem with that definition and/or concept is that such land was once theirs as part of their original covenant with God - a covenant that they repeatedly broke, with the crucifixion of Jesus being the final break - but no longer is theirs.

"They" being defined as the leaders of the Jewish people: religious leaders (priests, pharisees, scribes) as well as civil leaders (the elders).

God has amply shown throughout the Old Testament that spiritual covenants are like civil (legal) covenants - if one of the participants breaks it, the original agreement is null and void.

Theologically speaking, the historic Land of Israel only belongs to, and will be ultimately inherited by, those Christians who strive to live in accordance to the Word of God, also known as Jesus Christ.

All else is theo-political double-talk, worthless before the Eyes of God.

We have not changed our position about Jews - just as our document (2), regarding who was really responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus, shows. Jews are to be respected as all creatures of God should be and have a right to live in peace.... but not at the expense of others by claiming a covenant that they willfully and repeatedly broke. A covenant that is null and void.

With that said, you may want to carefully review the guest document that we have just announced on the Update Board.

It will help you understand the political double-talk and what is really going on.

I pray that we have answered your question in full and that our position regarding this matter is crystal clear to all.

With reference to your latest post on the Board:

If I were the devil.... This is what I would do! by Paul Harvey.

Re-reading it now brings chills to my body. The "tranquilize the rest with pills," is most telling of our society.

We, in Ohio, have already passed our number of deaths by opioids, that we had for all of last year! Of course, Blacks and Latino's had been dying from drugs since the 40's/50's and no one cared to help. I guess "they" thought we would kill ourselves to make things better for those in power. I feel the same way about HIV/AIDS.

I must also mention that gambling is now a part of the scene in Ohio. It is now legal in our state. We have a casino about 8 - 10 minutes from our house, another 20 minutes away, another 50 minutes away, all just off of I-75, which runs from Michigan to Florida.

Up next, legalizing medical marijuana. Ohio is living up to a former tag-line: "Ohio, the Heart of it All".


We thank you for your feedback regarding the state of moral affairs in Ohio. [Since you mentioned the state you reside in and the nearby interstate highway (I-75) we used IW and not your initials respecting your privacy.]

We also want to thank you for having reminded us, two years ago, of that radio transmission by Paul Harvey. We just ran into your e-mail mentioning it to us. Obviously it was the Will of God that we bring it up now and not two years ago.

I remember when that message was aired 52 years ago and I also remembered how I dismissed it as religious fanaticism.... because my flash conversion took place twenty years, minus 15 days, later. I praise God that He has kept my memories of the days before my conversion very fresh and clear. Such memories and thoughts greatly help me assist those who today think as I did 32 years ago.

Regarding the North Korea crisis- in-waiting, this is the way we see it.

a. When Mr. Trump had the full Senate at the White House to talk about the North Korea crisis he, without a doubt, informed them that the US was preparing a preemptive strike.

b. The final touches are being given to the preemptive strike with the objective of instantaneously neutralizing any and all serious military capabilities of North Korea.

c. Such 100% neutralization will not be achieved and NK will cause much damage to neighboring countries before "going down in flames".

d. In the ensuing confusion Russia and/or China will be briefly involved in the measure necessary to throw the whole world into a tail spin.

e. If not, a major false flag operation, of the variety just used with the hacking Qatar's news, the other Arab nation's reaction to it and the attack in Iran by "terrorists" - and attack allegedly claimed by ISIL - will be used.

You may read the details of what will happen next HERE.

Did you know that..... Israel planned to use nuclear bomb during 1967 war? (1)

Israel was ready to use an atomic bomb as a deterrent of last resort during the 1967 Six Day War, according to an archive of historical documents and testimonies released by a Washington DC think tank.

“Look, it was so natural,” General Yitzhal Yaakov said in one of the interviews in 1999 by writer and historian Avner Cohen.. “You’ve got an enemy, and he says he’s going to throw you to the sea. You believe him. He says he’s going to throw chemical weapons on you... What are you looking for? Anything you can do to stop him. How can you stop him? You scare him. If you’ve got something you can scare him with, you scare him.”

Comments: First of all, take a look at how far back Israel already was a nuclear power. Barely 20 years after the Western Powers gave them Palestine.

Secondly, keep in mind that if the level headed Israelites were thinking about using a nuclear weapon as a deterrent then, imagine what the paranoid and unbalanced NK's leadership will do today.

Decades ago those who wanted to deceive others only had recourse to cropping photographs and mimicking someone's voice, then.... PhotoShop came into the picture.

Then.... using recorded conversations (via "free" Skype, for example) one's conversation can now be manipulated (deconstructed and reconstructed) and cause you to (apparently) say whatever the deceivers wish. As far as we know, "they" have kept this little trick under wraps for now.

Then, as we announced sometime ago, YouTube videos can be manipulated - deconstructed and reconstructed - to present a falsified video of the target victim or manufactured hero.

Now they have come up with FaceApp. According to a news report (1):

FaceApp is an app for ruining your face. It morphs you into an old (or in my case, an even older) person. It can change your appearance to make you look more masculine or feminine, maybe. Take a photo with a neutral expression, and it will force you to smile. It is an app built only to please those who have really wanted a new way to play roulette with their own face.

The app uses neural networks to try to keep the results photo-realistic, FaceApp founder and chief executive Yaroslav Goncharov told TechCrunch in February. “Adding a smile may look like a simple modification on the surface but, in fact, is extremely difficult. Smiling is not just lips moving — the entire face changes in a subtle, but complicated, way,” he said.

That is, not only "they" can put a smile on a frowning face or a frown on a smiling face.... they can modify the entire facial expression to be coherent with a smile or a frown - not to mention advancing or reducing age of the individual as well as changing its gender.

To make sure that we can fully illustrate to our readers how serious this issue is, we have taken from a published page a series of examples where the expressions of the faces of famous paintings have been altered. We have uploaded this series of examples to our server (2) which will only be on-line until the next For Your Information and Reference is published. We have done this because we found that the original page had many offensive images which the publisher of the page thought were "cute".

As you should be able to discern, the public can no longer believe with any degree of certainty what they read, see or hear. This is why we keep reminding all that our only hope against deception is to have the Holy Spirit of God in residence within our soul. Nothing else will do.
(1) News Report
(2) A very disturbing (yet, not offensive) example [Withdrawn a few days after publication]

As a related example.... of mass deception, let us review what we published back in June 3rd, 2013:

Giant pyramids have been found in Europe. (1)

miguel de Portugal comments:

The following comments are based on two articles read in the Spanish magazine "Enigmas" (2)

The reality of this find by US archeologist Dr. Semir Osmanagic has been confirmed by the capitulation of those who originally denigrated Dr. Osmanagic's discovery: Anthony Harding, President of the Association of European Archeologists and Dr. Vrabac and his team.

One of the pyramids, of the five pyramidal structures found in Bosnia, and now called the Pyramid of the Sun has a height of 213 meters - 75 meters higher than the Great Pyramid of Keops (Egypt) and 140 meters higher than the Pyramid of Teotihuacan (Mexico).

Confirmed carbon-14 tests on organic material found inside the many tunnels (over 10 kilometers of them) under the pyramids show that said pyramid was in place at least 14,000 years ago with a possible construction date set at about 24,800 years ago.

As it is expected, and is usually the case, many renowned scientists are scrambling to explain this undeniable find since it does not fit in the mostly manufactured "scientific" and "religious" histories of mankind.

We do not need further confirmation since the findings dovetail perfectly with the True History of Creation (3) that we published on January 25, 2009.

(1) Dr. Osmanagic Official Page
(2) Revista "Enigmas" Año XIX, No. 211, pp. 20 - 33
(3) The True History of Creation

The problem is that after Messrs. Harding and Vrabac confirmed Dr. Osmanagic's find, in accordance to the above cited article, now a lengthy report in Wikipedia claims (1) that the whole affair was an invention of Dr. Osmanagic. Frankly we are not surprised at the brutal attack on Dr. Osmanagic find since his findings fit perfectly well on our publication about the True History of Creation which, in turn, goes against the official civil and religious invented history.

Let us make this clear - our True History of Creation was published at least six years before we knew anything about Dr. Osmanagic work, therefore, even of his work is proved to be a hoax it does not affect what we have found and published.

This is just another example of how "they" make sure that their "truth" is shoved down people's throats, otherwise their plans will begin to develop cracks and eventually collapse before the eyes of the world.

1. Have you ever wondered why Cain's offering was not pleasing to God while Abel's offering was?

Let us review that passage from Genesis...

2 ...Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil. 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. 4 And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast. [Genesis 4]

As far as we can see, both offered to God products from the area of work they devoted their lives to - Abel, a shepherd, and Cain, a farmer.... yet God favored one offering over. Why? Obviously it was not because God preferred fat over vegetables.

The most complete reason may be found within the first chapter of Isaiah's book.

Then we also have the, by now popular, ten virgins and their lamps - five took their wait seriously and had oil for the lamps and five just went through the motions... while hoping that, should they found themselves in a bind, that is, with no oil and no time to get it - the Mercy of God will see them through. A very serious miscalculation.

There are many other examples in the Old and New Testaments that remind us that just talking about God and pretending to do His Will - as long as it agrees with the will of the seeker - will only result in greater suffering for a member of the Elect at either side of the veil.

God does not need fat or vegetables, He needs our loyal abandonment to His Will and be Perfect as the Father is Perfect...

[43] You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thy enemy. [44] But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: [45] That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.

[46] For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this? [47] And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? do not also the heathens this? [48] Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.
[Matthew 5]

Which is fully coherent with....

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice: and the knowledge of God more than holocausts. [Hosea 6:6]

and with

Go then and learn what this meaneth, I will have mercy and not sacrifice. For I am not come to call the just, but sinners. [Matthew 9:13]

But wait! Why didn't He apply His own teachings and had Mercy on the five virgins without oil for their lamps?

Because the virgins knew that they should have had the oil and were, on purpose, counting on a Divine break - Mercy.

Brethren, one thing none of us would want to hear while standing before the Throne of Justice is: "Exactly what part of what my prophets and My Mother Mary explained to you, didn't you understand?"

Not a pretty picture, as the saying goes.

2. When we seek the Will of God we must make sure that we do not force the results and give God a real choice. Let us look at the Scriptures again and focus on the replacement of Judas Iscariot:

[23] And they appointed two, Joseph, called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. [24] And praying, they said: Thou, Lord, who knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, [25] To take the place of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas hath by transgression fallen, that he might go to his own place. [26] And they gave them lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles. [Acts 1]

They forced the results because they gave God only two options. To have done correctly what they were trying to do, they should have had a third choice - a "blank" card. It is obvious what would have happened then... they would have drawn a blank and should have waited for God to make His Will shown.

Of course, that rigging of the results did not stop God from appointing His own choice - Paul of Tarsus!

Man just loves to play God and, while doing that, all he is doing is interfering with the perfect Divine Plans.

Did you know that... a heart with a pacemaker can be hacked? (1)

A tech security evaluation has found a whopping 8,000 software vulnerabilities in the code of pacemakers.

The researchers found a worrying consistency across all vendors, highlighting inherent system weaknesses in file system encryption and storage of unencrypted patient data.

A total of more than 8,000 vulnerabilities in third party components were identified across the four manufacturers.

“Given the commonality of the findings across different vendors, identification of implementation vulnerabilities as to any one vendor may expose those same vulnerabilities in other vendors and should be considered carefully before public disclosure,” the report warns.

Comments: How long will it take for the internet security firms to come up with yet another salable product - an anti virus for a pacemaker?

How long will it be for the ransomware hackers to notify a pacemaker wearer to pay the ransom or their pacemaker will be turned off or accelerated?

No; I am not joking. It used to be that "the cup runeth over" but by now it is "the sewer that runeth over" and it stinks everywhere!
