Today's Gospel reading [Mt 8:5-17]
closes as follows:
it was evening, they brought him many who were possessed by demons, and
he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick, to fulfill
what had been said by Isaiah the prophet.
The way the ending of the sentence is worded "to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah
has propitiated the spread a major error; an error
that has caused much suffering when mere humans take it upon themselves
to act in order "to fulfill" a prophecy.
This syntax error appears in many instances in the New Testament so it
The way that ending should be worded is: "in
fulfillment of what had been said by Isaiah the prophet"
The official, and incorrect, version instructs the faithful that we must
"to fulfill" a prophecy, when the reality is that when we
God moves us, all prophecies are fulilled by default - without us
realizing.... it until later on.
We could write the proverbial book on that!
We are sure that....
you have heard that the Trump-Putin summit has been scheduled for the most apocalyptic
day of the year - July 16th. If you do not remember how apocalyptic
July 16th is, we suggest that you
refresh your memory
But that is not all... Of all European cities available they picked
Helsinki. It was in that city where the Helsinki Accords were
and then signed on August 1st, 1975.
And what were the Helsinki Accords about? According to Wikipedia:
The Helsinki Accords, Helsinki Final
Act, or Helsinki Declaration was the final act of the Conference on
Security and Co-operation in Europe held in Finlandia Hall of Helsinki,
Finland, during July and August 1, 1975.
Thirty-five states, including the US, Canada, and all European states
except Albania and Andorra, signed the declaration in an attempt to
improve relations between the Communists and the West. The
Helsinki Accords, however, were not binding as they did not have treaty
Technically the cold war started in 1947 and ended in 1991 because
of the collapse of
the Soviet Union and not
because of the Helsinki Accords.
So we could assume that the Trump-Putin meeting will just add another
date to the most apocalyptic calendar day of any year and yield no
Then again, we may all be surprised. God keeps all His cards on the
But then again....
as we were running spell check on the above text every time the checker
hit the "Trump-Putin" entry it showed it as an error with the proposed
being "Trumpeting". Quite interesting when one considers the tremendous
importance the "Trumpets" have in the Apocalypse.
Right on target! As we have said many times, God will use any means to
get His message to those of His children who have Eyes
to see and Ears
Do you ever wonder...
when the following Gospel
have been added
to the Gospel of Luke, chapter 9?
And there entered a thought into them, which of them should be greater.
47 But Jesus seeing the thoughts of their heart, took a child and set
him by him, 48 And said to them: Whosoever shall receive this child in
my name, receiveth me; and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth him
that sent me. For he that is the lesser among you all, he is the
And John, answering, said: Master, we saw a certain man casting out
devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with
us. 50 And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not
against you, is for you.
And it came to pass, when the days of his assumption were
accomplishing, that he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52
And he sent messengers before his face; and going, they entered into a
city of the Samaritans, to prepare for him. 53 And they received him
not, because his face was of one going to Jerusalem. 54 And when his
disciples James and John had seen this, they said: Lord, wilt thou that
we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them? 55 And
turning, he rebuked them, saying: You know not of what spirit you are.
Anyone who would
objectively study the history of Christianity, and Catholicism in
particular, would have to
that those were introduced during
the much maligned (1)
Second Vatican Council..... if one considers the fact that such fundamental truths
have been ignored and trampled over
for about 1600 years
causing the complete failure
of the Evangelization Jesus Christ
entrusted the Church which claims to represent Him.
That is simply because most of said Evangelizers never believed the
God they exploited for their personal benefit and to control the masses.
The continuous awareness of this moves us to incessantly offer prayers
of consolation and retribution to a most maligned and misrepresented
Do not ever forget the above so that you may understand why He will
what will fall upon the alleged Evangelizers. (2)
(1) The Official
Scapegoat: The Second Vatican
(2) The Gates of Hell
will not prevail.... but
conditions do apply
