Points to Ponder About

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 wonder....

... why if President Bush's approval rating has been at a rock steady 30 % for sometime, Senator Mc Cain - a "four more years" man - is neck to neck with Senator - "yes, we can do it" - Obama in the race for the White House?

....why in spite of the French population at large being virulently anti-Bush and the now French President Sarkozy was known to be a Bush-lover long before the French Presidential campaign ended, Sarkozy was elected President when Madame Royale was such an excellent opposition candidate?

....why the President of Georgia - knowing good and well how Russia would react - brutally attacked the separatist region of South Ossetia?

....why Benedict XVI appointed a man with the scandalous record of Levada to head the most important congregation of the Roman Catholic Church?

....why the U.S. seems to be able to affect a regime change in just about any place yet, just 90 miles away from the US Mainland, the Castro regime continues to thumb its nose to Washington, D.C. - regardless of the Administration in charge?

....why the financial crisis in Spain is so serious yet its leading Bank - the Santander Group - raked in 1.12 billion US dollars per month in profits for the first six months of 2008?

....why a puppet moves and speaks when it is a fact that - of itself - is an inanimate object?

If you can answer the last question, you have answered all the other ones.

Do you still wonder... why God allows certain horrific catastrophes upon humanity? A review of a few examples (1) may explain clearly why He allowed it in the past and why He will allow it again.

Do you ever wonder... if God's plan of redemption was changed from "just for Israel" to "for all nations" after Israel rejected Jesus?

After all, Jesus said:

I was not sent but to the sheep that are lost of the house of Israel. [Matthew 16:24]

If you thought so, we have news for you: God had that in mind since the time of Abraham. As He spoke to Abram He said:

And I will make my covenant between me and thee: and I will multiply thee exceedingly. Abram fell flat on his face. And God said to him: I AM, and my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name be called any more Abram: but thou shalt be called Abraham: because I have made thee a father of many nations. [Genesis 17:2-5]

and He further confirmed it when He said:

And I will multiply thy seed like the stars of heaven: and I will give to thy posterity all these countries: and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed. [Genesis 26:4]

You may have heard us say many times: Even though "this warning" or "that call" will be rejected and/or ignored, Divine Mercy demands that man be given the opportunity to accept it or reject it. For example - Mary knew well and good that the Church Administrators were going to ignore Her requests and that World War II would take place (1) - after all, She came from Eternity where there is no past nor future (2). Nonetheless Divine Mercy (3) demanded that such opportunity was to be given to mankind.

Now you will understand why it is so important that we fulfill the Will of God and announce and pronounce all He Wills. In this manner, when the wailing and grinding of the teeth starts, we can, in good conscience and with much peace, drown that sound by turning up the volume of Heavenly choirs as they intone:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of Power, God of Might, Heaven and Earth are filled with Your Glory, Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest!

Do you wonder... why man continues to dig deep into history - through the written word and through archeology - and yet fails to learn from any of the lessons that past errors can teach us? The same errors are committed millennia after millennia; the only difference is adjusting the error to the era being lived at the time.

If you were God, considering that we have advanced in technology to the point of being able to self-anihilation, yet are still as stupid as Eve and Adam were, what would you do?

Published on August 14th, 2008 [Eve of the Feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven]

Do you wonder... now that the Vatican has banned the use of the word Yahweh in songs, prayers at Catholic Masses (1), allegedly not to offend a segment of our elder brothers who still practice the older version of Judaism (2), should we expect that the next ban will be on calling Mary, Mother of God (3), and strip Jesus of His Divinity as not to offend our brethren of the Muslim Faith (4)?

Thanks be to God the Keys were taken from them (5) for some time now.

Do you wonder... why, when supernatural manifestations occur, the first thing most of the Church authorities - from local priest to the Hierarchy - say is that it must be from the devil? And then spend months or years trying to allegedly figure out its source - while they try to discredit it.

Think about it. Such behavior speak volumes.

Published on August 9th, 2008 [63rd anniversary of the world's second nuclear attack]

Do you wonder... why all those individuals, groups and governments around the world who:

(a) Without cease, accuse China of a multitude of evils; i.e. lack of civil and religious freedoms, for example [evils which are as prevalent in far too many of the finger-pointing countries];
(b) Brutally ignore the genocide-by-default in the rest of the world, where millions upon millions die because they are too poor to remain alive,

do not cease and desist trading with China? or at least impose some real economic penalties through heavy taxes on imports of Chinese products?

Because the harlot - Babylon - continues to reign supreme [Revelations 17:1-5] in the heart of most self-righteous while they only pay lip service to the Toll-Collector [Revelations 20: 11-15] no human will ever be able to elude - God!

Published on August 6th, 2008 [Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord and 63rd anniversary of the world's first nuclear attack]

Do you wonder... how can you tell apart the disciples of Christ from the disciples of satan (no matter how they want to present themselves)?

The Disciples of Christ: By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another. [John 13:35]

The disciples of satan:

By their greed and arrogance shall all men know that they are satan's disciples... which is supported by...

Mark 7 - 6 .... This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

Luke 12 - 56 You hypocrites, you know how to discern the face of the heaven and of the earth: but how is it that you do not discern this time?

Matthew 23 - 13 But woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men, for you yourselves do not enter in; and those that are going in, you suffer not to enter.

Matthew 23 - 15 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves.

Matthew 23 - 23 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you tithe mint, and anise, and cummin, and have left the weightier things of the law; judgment, and mercy, and faith.

Matthew 23 - 25 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you make clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but within you are full of rapine and uncleanness.

Matthew 23 - 27 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you are like to whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men's bones, and of all filthiness.

Matthew 6 - 5 And when ye pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, that love to stand and pray in the synagogues and corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men: Amen I say to you, they have received their reward.

Luke 13 - 15 ... Ye hypocrites, doth not every one of you, on the sabbath day, loose his ox or his ass from the manger, and lead them to water?

Does such behavior sound familiar? Let us help you identify them....

Matthew 24 - 48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart: My lord is long a coming (*): 49 And shall begin to strike his fellow servants, and shall eat and drink with drunkards: 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day that he hopeth not, and at an hour that he knoweth not:...

(*) Of course, every legitimate Marian Apparition which exhorts us to get our spiritual house in order for His imminent return usually is automatically denounced by those "servants" as being from satan. Think about it.

God does not recognize the "sitting on the fence" as a viable stance - as a a matter of fact - that stance usually defaults on being on the wrong side. Let us not forget our dear friends the Ten Virgins [Matthew 25: 1-13].... all ten responded to the call.... but only five were ready....

And this will be their end...

Matthew 24 - 51 And shall separate him, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Do you wonder... what the key symbolism of:

4 Now when he had ceased to speak, he said to Simon: Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said to him: Master, we have labored all the night, and have taken nothing: but at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a very great multitude of fishes, and their net broke. [Luke 5:4-6]


3 Simon Peter saith to them: I go a fishing. They say to him: We also come with thee. And they went forth, and entered into the ship: and that night they caught nothing. 4 But when the morning was come, Jesus stood on the shore: yet the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5 Jesus therefore said to them: Children, have you any meat? They answered him: No. 6 He saith to them: Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find. They cast therefore; and now they were not able to draw it, for the multitude of fishes. [John 21: 3-6]


When we obey God - follow the prompting of His Holy Spirit - whatever we have tried and failed at... will then succeed.

Do you wonder... why Democratic Presidential candidate-to-be, Senator Barack Obama continues with his message to Iran: “don't wait for the next president” to take office before yielding to Western demands to dismantle its nuclear weapons program?

We present to our reader three options/guesses:

(1) He has been informed - as viable future US Presidents are on these type of situations - that Iran will be attacked before next election; or
(2) He has been informed - as viable future US Presidents are on these type of situations - that Iran will be attacked before next election; or
(3) He has been informed - as viable future US Presidents are on these type of situations - that Iran will be attacked before next election.
