Points to Ponder About

February 2008

Previous Month Next Month Archive

The purpose of Points to Ponder About was to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented Faithful back to God and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth. (For a more detailed explanation, see Points to Ponder About - Purpose). What used to be posted in this section has been integrated in For Your Information and Reference.

Note: This 'Point to Ponder About' section was prepared in the years 2005-2009. Some linked documents external to this domain may have been removed from the Net, or moved to different locations, since then.

Do you ever wonder.... why it seems that God "cannot help" certain individuals who feel that they are being oppressed and harmed by evil spiritual forces?

As common as that feeling is, most of those poor souls continue to suffer without let up because no one has told them that: "God is truly above all and if we place our full trust in Him - take refuge under His Wing (1) - we will be untouched no matter if a storm of evil rages about us."

When this reality is doubted, the individual is empowering evil to act on its soul. All that God can then do is, in essence, console that soul since that soul considers evil to be more powerful than God.

We do wonder.... why only about 70% of our Main List took the time to view our documents on False Mysticism (1) and The Meaning of Being Perfect as the Father is Perfect (2). In reality, this is not greatly different from other key documents unless we deal with a book title like Jesus of Nazareth (3) which showed a viewing level ca. 148 % of our Main List. In a case like that the surge is the result of Search Engines looking for that particular phrase.

Our mailing with the subject of The "Smart Prayers" finally reached the 51 % response level.... but The Vatican and UFO's (4) made it to 100 %!

What is truly amazing to us is that our Main List is, by mailing list standards, a very clean list which is updated just every few months by the specific request of its members.

Of course - we may be facing a situation reflected in the following e-mail that we have just received from Ireland:

"I have not received your mailings for a few days. Jack"

Upon investigation we found out why when we received the following:

You are receiving this message because of a message you sent to Jack.

Jack is protected by ASB AntiSpam. As such he/she only accepts e-mail from authenticated users. This is to insure that messages from automated spammers cannot get through.

In order for your message to be delivered, you will need to reply to this message. You will only need to do this once.

Please follow the instructions below: etc., etc. etc.

Of course, we followed the instructions and have not heard from Jack, or his server, ASB AntiSpamn or from the proverbial "man on the moon".

Therefore - dearly beloved - If you are not receiving our mailings, do let us know.

Let us all keep in mind that - "we are not on commission" and we are only responsible for doing our part, which, in the mailing of new document announcements is fulfilled... but maybe we should start giving "Frequent Viewer Points" which may be exchanged for shorter Purgatory sentences....

Do you wonder... what Jesus really meant when He said:

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land. [Matthew 5: 3-4]

He was not just "talking pretty" or "sugar coating the pill" of poverty and marginalization of so many. "Poor" and "meek" are essentially equivalent to "humble" - they whose spirit is not set upon riches.

"Posses the land" is also translated in different Bibles as "inherit the Earth" - which is a better translation for the Western culture.

Therefore - was He just "talking pretty"? Hardly!

Those who make it to Step No. 17 (1) will indeed inherit the Earth - the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth (2) - for the "arrogant" will be no longer. Those among the Elect (3) who do not make it alive to Step No. 17, will indeed inherit the Kingdom of Heaven (2) - in their case - in Eternity.

Once again - perfect internal and external coherence (4) confirms the reliability of the Word of God when assumed with the Illumination of the Holy Spirit of God. (5)

Do you wonder how.... those who claim that the Chair of Peter has been empty (1) since the death of Pius XII plan to have the "legitimate" successor of Pius XII elected? After all - all current Cardinals have been elected long after Pius XII passed on - thus, they cannot be Cardinals by their standards - and the tradition they so adamantly cling to requires that Cardinals elect the Successors of Peter in a Conclave.

God forbid! they would even consider the election of a Pope by popular vote of the Bishops.... but, then again, by the same reasoning, there must only be just a handful of Bishops that had been anointed for the same reasons that there are no Pius XII vintage Cardinals left.

For additional "TheoGymnastics" you may want to read about Pius XIII (2)

(1) Sedevacantism is a theological position embraced by a minority of Traditionalist Catholics which holds that the Papal See has been vacant since the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 (or, in some cases, the death of Pope John XXIII in 1963). Sedevacantists believe that Paul VI (1963–1978), John Paul I (1978), John Paul II (1978–2005) and Benedict XVI (2005-) have been neither true Catholics nor true popes, but rather notorious heretics.

Do you wonder.... why there still is no real harmony at the highest and middle echelons of organized religion - specifically Judaism, Christianity and Islam - when we have explained away, with their respective Holy Texts on hand, the differences that have been used for centuries to separate us? [This document (1) has been provided to the highest levels of the religious institutions, religious press and political leaders - the White House included.]

Because chaos is needed to achieve the ultimate goal of the men-of-the-world - the New Tower of Babel. (2)

Then - "What can we do?" the Faithful may ask.

The "blue color in our faces" indicate how often we have answered (3) that question. The problem lies in that not enough members of the Elect (4) are listening. However, we are not surprised as we remember the Words of our Lord and Master - Jesus Christ: The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few. [Matthew 9:37]

Since God is absolute Perfection and Wisdom, He will use the pain (5) associated with the chaos created to bring about the New Tower of Babel, together with the pain (5) associated with the living in the New Tower of Babel - however brief it will be - and that (5) associated with the even briefer rule of the False Christ (6) to get the attention of the Elect so that they make it to Heaven as it has been written in the Book of Life. [Rev. 13:8]

Isn't it simple? But so was Eliseus' formula for the cure of the leprosy infecting Naaman, the Syrian General, and at first he would not believe it. [2 Kings 5]

We wonder.... about the coincidental and, so far, partially parallel that exists between the script of the opening episodes of the first season of Fox's series "24" (1) and what is taking place in the world today. It is even more disquieting especially as Mr. Obama is swiftly moving ahead of Mrs. Clinton - thus, his chances of becoming the next US President are increasing by "leaps and bounds".

It is quite interesting that the First Season aired on November 6, 2001. Mr. Obama was elected a U.S. Senator three yeas later, on November 2004, and announced his candidacy to the US Presidency on February 2007. (2)

It even is more disquieting when we consider that Mr. Obama is frequently compared with a composite of John F. Kennedy (3) and Martin Luther King.

We pray that this is just one of those "one in a million" potential coincidence.

Do you wonder.... why Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff said on Wednesday that: "U.S. may be backsliding on security?" (1)

Wonder no more.... The "Masters of the World" fear losing their foothold in the White House. Remember, they are ten years behind. (2)

Mrs. Clinton and Mr. McCain both have an identical characteristic - a characteristic which is contrary to the Master's Plan - neither can be manipulated.

This does present a problem come November, does it not....?

The stronger McCain and Hillary become the more the US Security will "backslide"....

On the other hand, the "Masters" did not have a problem in creating the circumstances that would allow the quasi immediate implementation of "The Road Map for National Security : Imperative for Change" (3) in 2001, did they?......

If the results were not so horrific, it would be amusing to see them play cat and mouse.

May those who have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear (4) and have not lost them, as Kirk did (5), See and Hear and... then.... Pray! (6)

Do you ever wonder... what is the key message in the following Biblical passage from the Second Book of Kings:

....Elias said to Eliseus: Ask what thou wilt have me to do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Eliseus said: I beseech thee that in me may be thy double spirit (1). 10 And he answered: Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless if thou see me when I am taken from thee, thou shalt have what thou hast asked: but if thou see me not, thou shalt not have it.

(1) "Double spirit"... A double portion of thy spirit, as the eldest son and heir: or thy spirit which is double in comparison of that which God usually imparteth to his prophets.

11 And as they went on, walking and talking together, behold a fiery chariot, and fiery horses parted them both asunder: and Elias went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 12 And Eliseus saw him,... 13 And he took up the mantle of Elias, that fell from him...

The message was (and still is!): That even a prophet of the stature of Elias defers to the Will of God. Eliseus would not have seen Elias going to Heaven if it had not been the Will of God. Thus it was God who truly anointed Eliseus as a fully empowered prophet.

In case that we had missed that, Jesus reminded us again when he told the mother of the sons of Zebedee: sit on my right or left hand, is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared by my Father. [Matthew 20:23]

Even Jesus, when walked upon earth as one of us (except in sin), deferred to God, the Father, in such matters.

Then.... do you even wonder why puny little man pretends to act without truly deferring to the Will of God? Well - we have amply answered that question before!

Do you ever wonder... why Mary had to go to the temple for the post birth purification ritual [Feast of Candlemas on February 2nd] if She was indeed Immaculate (which of course, She was!)?

Do you ever wonder.... why Jesus, the Word of God Incarnate, had to be presented to God at the Temple, a ritual which is also part of the Feast of Candlemas?

For the same reason Jesus had John the Baptist baptize Him.

By example God was: (a) Upholding the Old Law [Purification and Presentation] into which He was born; and (b) Introducing the key element of the New Law - Baptism or, as a "techie" would say: "Formatting" the soul of the infant so that it may be able to "install" the Holy Spirit of God.

As a matter of interest - the Church of the East (2), composed of the Orthodox Churches, still practice the ritual of Presentation for ever child born to a family. It is quite a moving experience.

Did you ever wonder.... why Jesus was so insistent that the general public not be informed of His true identity? For example when He stated:

Then he commanded his disciples, that they should tell no one that he was Jesus the Christ. [Matthew 16:20]

He answered that when speaking at Solomon's Porch in the Temple:

24 The Jews therefore came round about him, and said to him: How long dost thou hold our souls in suspense? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. 2526 But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice: and I know them, and they follow me. Jesus answered them: I speak to you, and you believe not: the works that I do in the name of my Father, they give testimony of me. [John 10]

In "matters of Heaven" God demands character's anonymity so that the message can only be understood, and thus, believed by God's sheep. Everyone else, will turn away. It really is that simple.

A mechanism that we are very grateful for.
