Admonishment From St. Paul
de Portugal Repeats It Now
The purpose of this document is to bring back to life, and repeat for today, an
admonishment from St. Paul which has been misunderstood over the
centuries. An admonishment which has been used to weaken the Faith of
the children of God.
In 1 Corinthians (7: 26 - 31)
St. Paul warns as follows:
think then that this is good,
on account of the present necessity, that [it is] good for a man
to remain so as he is. Art thou bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed;
art thou free from a wife? do not seek a wife. But if thou shouldest
also marry, thou hast not sinned; and if the virgin marry, they have
not sinned: but such shall
have tribulation in the flesh; but I spare you.
But this I say, brethren, the time is straitened. For
the rest, that they who have wives, be as not having [any]: and they
that weep, as not weeping; and they that rejoice, as not rejoicing; and
they that buy, as not possessing; and they that use the world, as not
disposing of it as their own; for the fashion of this world passes.
Other Bible versions utilize the phrases "present distress", "such people will have
the hardships consequent on human nature" and "the time is short: it remaineth".
The general consensus of the alleged Biblical experts was to brush off
everything else Paul said associated with such urgent exhortations
because they believed that it was another failed warning about the
tribulations preceding the Second Coming of Our Lord.
Paul clearly stated in the full text of St. Paul's exhortations (1) that not following this
urgent call was not to be
considered a sin but that it would be a good idea to
Why? Because it was better at that time, and in preparation for what
was to come, to focus on the things of the Lord and not get tangled up
in the normal day to day living affairs.
But why then? This is what Paul responds (from the past), and what
miguel de Portugal echoes today "...
I say this for your own profit; ... but for ... waiting on the Lord
The first letter to the Corinthians was completed in the year 57
A.D.... thirteen years before
the Romans razed the Temple and Jerusalem and dispersed the Jews to the
four corners of the known world (from where they started returning many
centuries later after World War II).
Paul did not make a mistake.
He did not mistakenly announce the Second Coming of Our Lord; he,
knowing what tribulations awaited Judaism and Christianity (yet in its
infancy), thought it appropriate to issue said warnings because, by minimizing people's attention on
worldly matters and exhorting them to focus their attention on Godly
matters, their suffering would be minimized.
Does this sound familiar? It should, if you are familiar with the
exhortations of The M+G+R Foundation
because that is precisely our function today (2).
Hopefully, the faithful may now realize that Paul was not over
dramatizing something that would still not happen for ca. 1950 years. He was warning about the
approaching time when the Temple and Jerusalem would be razed and the
persecution/diaspora of the people of God would commence.
Now, miguel de Portugal, in the Name of God, renews such exhortations
with two additions. This time....
(a) Heaven is referring to the
"necessity"/"distress"/"tribulations" associated with the Second Coming
of Our Lord Jesus Christ at the End of These Times (3) for which "the time is
short: it remaineth"; and
(b) The suffering that awaits humanity in general, and Christians
specifically, will make what the Jews of 70 A.D. suffered look like a
gentle Sabbath stroll.
I, miguel de Portugal (5)
wish to Glorify God by confessing to the faithful that I am issuing
this warning again because God Wills that we do and my love for Him
demands that I do so.
Left to my own devices and miseries, and having to continually endure
the zombie like denial (4)
of most of the alleged Christians. I honestly confess:
would have not spent my time issuing this admonishment. However, love
demands that humanity be alerted that Paul was not wrong; that he was
right then and that each one of you should be heeding said warning,
renewed for you today, more than you should have in Paul's time.
Rest assured - you no longer have the luxury of a 13 years advance
notice as the Corinthians had; your time is just about up.
May the Holy Spirit of God guide your every step. We assure you -
without it, you will be hopelessly lost.
