An important visual reminder as to

How God Works Through Us


The purpose of this brief document is to illustrate how God - in the Person of the Holy Spirit - works through His human children in harmony with our free will.


For quite some time we have wanted to better express how God works through His human creatures. miguel de Portugal has had a very clear mental picture of it for quite some time yet, he could not express/describe it properly. Now we have found a picture through which, symbolically, we may be able to transmit the information.

As you may see in this image...

Glove Box

...there is an enclosed/isolating box with fitted gloves. This type of equipment is used in laboratories where the technician needs to handle the contents of the box without directly touching it nor becoming in direct contact with the enclosed environment.

In the laboratory, the purpose of this type of box is, for the technician, to avoid: (a) contaminating himself with whatever he is handling; or (b) contaminating any of the contents of the isolation box.

The technician introduces his hands inside the gloves, which are fitted to the isolating box, and then he can work with whatever is inside the box without direct contact, yet, yielding the desired results.

Now, imagine that Creation is the inside of the box, we are the gloves and God is the laboratory technician.

If those we are as pliable as the gloves in the laboratory equipment and allow ourselves to be used by God, He can work marvels in Creation without breaking His own rule, that is, without direct contact/intervention. He is working the marvels through us.

The more pliable we are, the more good God can accomplish in His Creation... through man. When we offer resistance to be used, as if we were gloves with a non collaborating will, there is very little God can do through us.

Now, Jesus said:

Amen, amen I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do; and greater than these shall he do. Because I go to the Father [John 14:12]

That is, the more we truly believe in Him and His Word, the more pliable we are to His Will, thus the greater will be our abandonment to the Will of God and the more He can accomplish through us in harmony with our free will.

Jesus also said:

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you. [John 15:7]

Such abiding condition will make it easier for Him (symbolized by the lab technician) to grant whatever we request while, at the same time, correcting what godless man has done to His Creation as He easily works through us (symbolized by the very pliable gloves) in harmony with our free will.

Why will we do "greater works that these" - that is, greater than the ones that He had performed then? Primarily because He has gone to the Father Who is greater than He is. Once He is with the Father, the Redemption cycle has been completed and the power that the invocation of the Holy Name of Jesus wields is now greater than when He walked amongst men.

That is why He also said:

...whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, that will I do: that the Father may be glorified in the Son. [John 14:13]

Once again, the choice is ours. To what degree are we willing to allow God to work through us? The more we allow Him, the more He will be able to accomplish through us in His Creation, thus the better we will be able to serve Him... and for our own benefit.


Thus, we must stay out of His way and, above all, never think that whatever wonders we may be able to work were of our own doing. Whatever it was, is and will ever be is the result of God working through us in harmony with our free will.

I pray that we have been able to convey this clearly. Please, forgive us if we have failed.
