Points to Ponder About

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.

Using junk science to prove that this or that person is the anti-Christ

Do you wonder... about the validity of a video clip being circulated wherein a Pastor explains - using a very complicated and creative linguistic logic - that Jesus gave us the name of the anti-Christ as Barack Obama?

Our off-the-cuff personal response to a family member:

The same could be done with just about anything in the Bible and ancient languages and a mind with an agenda. What those individuals should do instead of wasting time with such derivations is start praying - there is absolutely nothing else left to do.

A professional (albeit conceptually the same) response from a Linguist graduate from UCSB:

Junk science – A complete misuse of the discipline of historical linguistics, comparing modern and old languages, and making insupportable comparisons between Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. Jesus didn't write Luke, Luke did – a physician that spoke a fairly modern Greek. There is little or no poetic language in the New Testament from the Golden Age of Israel (Isaiah). Most early Christians couldn't read Hebrew and used the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Old Testament. Jesus probably also used the Septuagint rather than the Hebrew Torah.

We thank those who alerted us to said video clip.

The biblical meaning of scandal

The examples of U.S. and the Roman Catholic Church

Do you wonder...

...what has harmed the US the most in the last decade? The violation of the most basic human rights of the detainees and the excessive alleged "collateral damage" amongst the civilian population in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

...what has harmed the Roman Catholic Church the most in the last decade? The look-the-other-way attitude of the Hierarchy and the top Vatican Administrators regarding the sexual abuse of those entrusted to them.

...what has harmed institutionalized religion the most from time immemorial? The "do as I say and not as I do" Evangelization technique.

But why? Is there a common thread to cause(s) of this harm?

Yes, there is and it has been "on the Book" for almost 2,000 years.

Matthew 16:23
Who turning, said to Peter: Go behind me, Satan, thou art a scandal unto me: because thou savourest not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men.

Matthew 18:7
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.

Romans 14:13
Let us not therefore judge one another any more. But judge this rather, that you put not a stumblingblock or a scandal in your brother's way.

1 John 2:10
He that loveth his brother, abideth in the light, and there is no scandal in him.

Any animal would have, in 2,000 years, detected the "action to reaction" effect and modified (evolved from) their "primitive" (by our standards) behavior to prevent such results... yet... "civilized" man has been unable to recognize the problem, much less, correct it... and were he given another 2,000 years no improvement would be forthcoming. That is why time is really up and God will "take it from here"... and we Praise Him for it!... it is mankinds only hope.

Depopulation by Food - Codex defines nutrients as toxins

Do you wonder... if all bases are being covered to force-fulfill the prophecies of the Book of Revelation?

You need not wonder any more...

We received a link from a new and very active and effective member of The M+G+R Foundation family - (Mrs.) RM.

The link was received on July 29 and sadly enough, as the result of the conditions we must function due to many factors - lack of effective assistance being one of them - it was not until today - August 23rd that we had an opportunity to view this very important, fully backed up, informational video on: Depopulation goal: December 31, 2009

We entreat you to run - not walk - and watch this 6 + minute video clip. Maybe because there is a face on it, those who are still skeptical of what we have been unceasingly announcing since 1991, will now believe.

May God be Praised for the assistance that we receive to fulfill the mission entrusted to miguel de Portugal which, even as limited as it is, through His Grace, is somehow multiplied for the benefit of mankind.

May God have Mercy on the poor innocent people of this world!

[Feast of the Queenship of Mary]

The importance of the Blessed Mother Mary

Do you wonder... why it seems that the B.M. Mary is so important? Almost central to the Catholic Faith?

A review of this document may help explain the reasons in full detail.

God does not demand nor accept human holocaust

The bad example by Jephte in the Book of Judges

Do you wonder... if it was really the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who was involved in this scene from the book of Judges?

29 Therefore the spirit of the Lord came upon Jephte, and going round Galaad, and Manasses, and Maspha of Galaad, and passing over from thence to the children of Ammon, 30 He made a vow to the Lord, saying: If thou wilt deliver the children of Ammon into my hands,

31 Whosoever shall first come forth out of the doors of my house, and shall meet me when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, the same will I offer a holocaust to the Lord. 32 And Jephte passed over to the children of Ammon, to fight against them: and the Lord delivered them into his hands. 33 And he smote them from Aroer till you come to Mennith, twenty cities, and as far as Abel, which is set with vineyards, with a very great slaughter: and the children of Ammon were humbled by the children of Israel. 34 And when Jephte returned into Maspha to his house, his only daughter met him with timbrels and with dances: for he had no other children. 35 And when he saw her, he rent his garments, and said: Alas! my daughter, thou hast deceived me, and thou thyself art deceived: for I have opened my mouth to the Lord, and I can do no other thing.

36 And she answered him: My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth to the Lord, do unto me whatsoever thou hast promised, since the victory hath been granted to thee, and revenge of thy enemies. 37 And she said to her father: Grant me only this which I desire: Let me go, that I may go about the mountains for two months, and may bewail my virginity with my companions. 38 And he answered her: Go. And he sent her away for two months. And when she was gone with her comrades and companions, she mourned her virginity in the mountains. 39 And the two months being expired, she returned to her father, and he did to her as he had vowed, and she knew no man. From thence came a fashion in Israel, and a custom has been kept: 40 That from year to year the daughters of Israel assemble together, and lament the daughter of Jephte the Galaadite for four days.
[Judges 11]

The answer is No!

If it had been really God, He would have done what He did with Abraham and Isaac. The true and living God does not demand nor accept human holocaust.

[Eve of Feast of the Assumption of the B.V. Mary]

A fault in undersea cable network

How easily Internet can be brought to a halt

Do you wonder... how reliable is the Web when it comes to over depend on it for most of our activities - financial included?

Following is a notification we have just received from our main (worldwide) Hosting server:

Dear Valued Customers,

Latest News :

A segment of the Asia-Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2) undersea cable network between China and Taiwan suffered a serious cable fault on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 causing Internet traffic to be rerouted onto other undersea cables around the world and slowing Internet access for some users in Southeast Asia.

Due to this re-routing of internet traffic, users around the world may experience slowness while accessing certain websites/email.

If you have website with visitors from around the world, contact us to find out on how our localized Global Hosting Solution (Australia, Singapore, The Netherlands, USA based server) can overcome such issues in future.

That is how reliable it really is or how easily it can be brought to a grinding halt.

The weapons of the theoretical World War III and IV, according to Einstein

Do you wonder... what Einstein meant when he stated (1):

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

If you still wonder, we suggest that you review the second half of the Real Time Line of Creation (2) as well as the steps of the Sequence of Events Leading to the End of These Times. (3)

Our responsibility ends when we make such information available to all and issue the necessary periodic reminders.

[Transfiguration of Our Lord and Anniversary of the Destruction of Hiroshima (1)]

The plan to use Cuba's regime as a patsy in a nuclear attack

Do you ever wonder... why a 100% hostile-to-the-US regime, Castro's Cuba, has been allowed  to exist just a few miles off the US Mainland for 50 (!!!) years, when every effort has been made to eradicate similar regimes throughout the entire world (2) - no matter how far from our shores they may be?

Could it be that those who, from within the US officialdom, have been working on their own agenda behind the scenes for decades (3), need a major patsy to "hang the blame on" for a next-to-impossible-to-stop nuclear attack on the US mainland?

Lee Harvey Oswald (4) and Saddam Hussein are two well known patsies used in the past by those individuals who live off the US taxpayers while planning to eventually enslave them.

Imagine what would happen in such an eventuality since police-state like laws were so easily passed and implemented in the US as a direct result of the tragic events of 9-11, events which could be judged as minor when compared with a limited, but psycho- traumatic, nuclear attack.

Just a thought... or two...

The promotion of Maitreya under the sign of a rising star

Do you wonder... what upcoming astronomical event the Maitreya group is aware of (among other groups, of course) that they are risking their credibility to an unheard of level by announcing with annoying insistence the rising of a star that will supposedly shine night and day, just prior to Maitreya (world teacher-christ figure) being unveiled on national television in the US?

Even the Discovery Channel is promoting it on national television in the US. The anti-Christ group, Share International, is airing this commercial and has posted the commercial (1), as well as another (2), on YouTube. They have engaged in a flurry of activity recently, including press releases that have been posted at, heralding the coming of the world teacher known as "christ", Buddha, Krishna, etc. They have been predicting this for years and now they are claiming that Maitreya has arrived and is ready to go to work to eradicate the many problems in our world.

This Maitreya is not the False Christ we have announced (3). He would fall in the category announced thus: For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. [Matthew 24:24]
