“A KIDNEY BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD SMELL AS SOUR,” can be said of the organ-trafficking and money-laundering FBI sting operation which implicated five Talmudic rabbis from New York and neighboring New Jersey.

This international rabbinical operation spanned from Jewish-entrenched New York to the Jewish state of Israel.

The FBI used an informant, a Talmudic Jew named Solomon Dwek, to approach the rabbis — who were from the Syrian Jewish community in Brooklyn NY and Deal NJ — to help hide his assets. Deal is a wealthy oceanfront borough of New Jersey where the rabbis and their Jewish accomplices have posh summer homes.

Solomon Dwek, a bankrupt real-estate developer was charged in 2006 with scheming to defraud PNC Bank out of $50 million. The FBI enlisted Dwek in 2007 in a plea-bargaining arrangement due to Dwek facing a penalty of 30 years in prison. As a co-operating witness, Dwek was used to expose illicit charity operations run by the rabbis.

Over the course of two years, Dwek arranged to buy a kidney from the rabbis and hid $3 million in assets from creditors through the rabbis’ tax-exempt charitable organizations — all with the blessing of the FBI.

Saying he needed to hide his assets so “he could live,” Dwek convinced the rabbis to accept payments made out to various charities they oversaw. The payments were cashed into the rabbis’ charity accounts and handed back to Dwek, keeping a portion as their cut. Rabbi Nahum told Dwek that he should spread his money through a number of rabbis. “The more it’s spread the better,” Rabbi Nahum said.

Video recordings reveal that negotiations between Dwek and the rabbis took place in parking lots, back alleys, diners and boiler rooms, with thousands in cash being stuffed into Apple Jacks cereal boxes before being passed on.

THE TALMUDIC RABBIS who were arrested included Saul Kassin, chief rabbi of Shaare Zion Synagogue in Brooklyn; Eliahu Ben Haim, chief rabbi of Congregation Ohel Yaacob in Deal, NJ; Edmond Nahum of Deal Synagogue; Mordechai Fish of Congregation Sheves Achim in Brooklyn; and Lavel Schwartz, Fish’s brother. View A List Of The Jewish Accomplices Here.

Besides doing business with the informant, the rabbis used their charities linked to their synagogues to launder money for countless others. Money from illegal goods such as fake Gucci handbags passed into the rabbis’ hands.

The rabbis were charged with laundering money that often was sent to Israel. Rabbi Kassin, accused of laundering more than $200,000 through Dwek, used intermediaries in Israel and Switzerland to provide funding.

Rabbi Eli Ben Haim’s source for the cash was an Israeli who, for a fee of 1.5 percent, supplied the cash through intermediary cash houses run by a host of Talmudic accomplices. Rabbi Ben Haim remarked that at one time he had laundered between $8 million in one year, and earned $1 million as his cut.

Millions of dollars have been laundered in this way — with much of the money that the rabbis used coming from the Jewish state of Israel. (Of course, the United States of Jerusalem would never dare to investigate their foreign power ruler, the rogue state of Israel.) View Rabbinic Arrests On Video Here.

THE ISRAELI/KIDNEY CONNECTION

ACCORDING TO THE CRIMINAL COMPLAINT AGAINST THE ‘KIDNEY SALESMAN’ by the name of Rabbi Levy Izhak Rosenbaum of Brooklyn NY, Dwek visited Rosenbaum on July 13, 2009, seeking a kidney to purchase. (Most Talmudic male Jews register themselves as ‘rabbis’ so as to shirk paying taxes.)

Accompanied by a female FBI agent posing as his secretary, Dwek told Rosenbaum that his secretary’s uncle had polycystic disease, was on dialysis, and wanted to secure a new kidney in a faster time frame than the legal transplant waiting list would allow.

Rosenbaum told Dwek that he had been in the business of buying and selling organs for ten years and could help his secretary. “I am a matchmaker,” Rosenbaum is quoted as saying at the meeting, “I’m doing this a long time.” He then added: “Let me explain to you one thing. It’s illegal to buy or sell organs. So you cannot buy it. What you do is, you give me a compensation for my time involved.”

Rabbi Rosenbaum then offered to obtain a kidney from Israel for $160,000 with 50 percent paid up front. The rabbi said some of the money would go to the donor and some to doctors in Israel. He then added: “One of the reasons it’s so expensive is because you have to shmear (meaning pay various individuals for their assistance) all the time.”

(Can you imagine your priest trading in body parts? Or your pastor trying to sell you a kidney in a parking lot or in a diner? Only Jewish rabbis are in the business of selling human organs in back alleys.)

AND WHERE DID ROSENBAUM the ‘kidney salesman’ obtain his wares? In Israel, of course, as the Washington Post reported - but vague details were given.

Most likely it was through Israeli blackmarket organ brokers with ties to the L Greenberg Institute of Forensic Medicine, a department of the Israeli Ministry of Health.

The Institute, affiliated with Tel Aviv University, examines over 2500 bodies annually. Clinical forensic examinations are conducted by the Institute on the corpses of “perpetrators of assault” - who doubtless, are Palestinian ‘terrorists.’

And proof that the Israeli government is actively involved in the global organ market was affirmed by an ex-Israeli army officer, arrested in Brazil in 2004 for illegal organ trafficking. The Israeli defendant told a Brazilian court that “Israel finances organ brokerages in other countries through their national health services.”

Although there are ‘religious objections’ by ultra-orthodox Jews regarding organ transplants, the US Talmudic rabbis and their enablers in Israel have no ‘monetary objections’ to making a million or two from blackmarket kidneys, hearts, and organs…

    Dear Precious Real Zionist News Family & All Readers Of Real Zionist News,

    I think that this article was the toughest article I have ever done.

    Hours upon hours of reading through tons of news reports were spent trying to get the essential and pertinent details AND NAMES WITH PICS of the rabbinical criminals. I was able to identify Rabbi Mordechai Fish only after hours of image and news searches.

    I was also able to track down the exact syanagogues of the rabbinical criminals as well as the exact conversations between Rabbi Rosenbaum, the ‘kidney saleman,’ and Dwek and his FBI secretary.

    The picture and image searches took forever. And now I have a head cramp to tell you the truth.

    As many of you know, I grew up in Judaism, having attended Hebrew school and Sabbath school, and services regularly. At one time I aspired to be a rabbi.

    But when a rabbi spit on a hospital floor when I brought up the possiblity of Jesus being the Messiah, I gave up my desire to be a rabbi. I was simply disgusted with this crass and crude ‘ignoramous’ kind of attitude by not only this rabbi, but others that I spoke with about the possible messiahship of Jesus Christ.

    My mother sent me after college to spend a year with the Chasidic rabbis so that I could learn their way of life and incorporate it into mine. Many of these rabbis were crude individuals with no manners whatsoever. Thus, I am not surprized that these slew of Jews, these rabbis and their Talmudic accomplices, were involved in illegal crimes.

    And, the fact that they use their chariities and registered “rabbinic” credentials to SHIRK TAXES, is something I have been aware of since my young adult years. Most secular Jews know all about this rabbinical modus operendi.

    It occured to me recently, that I ‘work for a living.’ How do I ‘work?” By spending countless hours researching, texting, and imaging these articles. That’s exactly how. I also work hard at the Street Evangelism that I conduct.

    I guess this is why I keep on asking for donations. I really do need your help everybody not only for the high expense of running OUR site, Real Zionist News, but for my Street Evangelism ministry as well.

    Because the NYC Street Evangelism AND the Boston Street Evangelism efforts are SO SUCCESSFUL, I have booked another session in NYC from August 18-22, 2009.

    Even though I stay in a Youth Hostel and have only 1 vegan meal per day, these NYC trips are VERY Expensive.

    So, will please consider and pray about helping me out?

    There is a DONATION FEATURE BUTTON at the top & bottom of this and every Real Zionist News article. Or, simply CLICK:
    https://co.clickandpledge.com/sp/d1/default.aspx?wid=26246

    Donations my also be safely sent to:
    Brother Nathanael Kapner; PO Box 547; Priest River ID; 83856.

    I AM AMAZED that out of 10’s of thousands of readers of Real Zionist News every week, (the Michael Jackson Article reached MANY NEW readers who ordinarily would not come to this site), that only a FEW help out financially by donating.

    AND, apart from maybe 1 or 2 new donators every couple of weeks, it is the SAME FEW who do help out.

    Okay, it’s time for me to take a breather.

    Please know that I love you all, I appreciate you all, I respect you all, and pray for you all by name, daily.

    Please keep me in your prayers as well for Christ’s guidance, strength, and protection, and love.

    Much Love In Christ Our Saviour,

    +Brother Nathanael

    These monsters will be sucked into oblivion one day.

    Shas wash its hands

    Hmmmm, do you really beleive there is no link?

    Shas Denies Links to New Jersey Money Laundering And Public Corruption Scandal

    http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7015913478

    One of those arrested in the alleged money laundering case is Rabbi Eliahu Ben Haim, a close associate of Rabbi David Yosef, son of the Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.

    Israeli media report that Rabbi Ben Haim has been involved in raising funds from rich Syrian-Jewish families in the U.S. for Shas institutions.

    Rabbi Ben Haim is also active in the Ovadia family’s Yechave Daat organization. Rabbi David Yosef is the head of the Yechave Daat Yeshiva in Jerusalem.

    According to media reports, Rabbi David Yosef rejected an attempt by the FBI’s state witness turned informant, Solomon Dwek, to ensnare him in the scandal.

    Rabbi Yosef reportedly rejected a request from Dwek to help launder a check for $25,000.

    Rabbi Edmund Nahum, another of those arrested last week, is also close to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and has been involved in raising funds for the Yosef family institutions.

    Roei Lachmanovich, Shas Party leader Eli Yishai’s spokesperson, said the fact that the wealthy Syrian and Hasidic communities supported Sephardi institutions in Israel did not mean that they were connected to Shas.

    “There is no connection from the Shas Party organization to all of this mess in the United States,” Lachmanovich told The Media Line, maintaining that Shas institutions received their budget directly from the Israeli government and did not need to fundraise in America.

    Lachmanovich denied that any Shas institution had been involved in any money-laundering or illegal activity.

    “All the Shas organization, the educational organizations, the non-formal education organization, the kindergarden organization, got their budget from the Israeli state by law,” he said. “They have no connection with support by money from the United States.”

    The spokesperson said that Rabbi David Yosef was not a member of Shas and did not represent the party.

    “Besides the fact that he is Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s son, he has no connection to the Shas organization,” Lachmanovich said. “He has no formal connection to the Shas organization.”

    “There is complete separation between the political movement, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s home and all these Sephardi yeshivot,” he said. “They assume there is a connection between the Sephardi yeshivot to Shas, but there is no direct connection at all, not a formal connection.”

    “If someone will go and check the bank account of the Sephardi yeshivot and they found that someone was wrong, Mr Yishai and Rabbi Ovadia Yosef will be the first to say they should be checked by the police,” he added.

    Haaretz is more specific on Shas’ party link with filthy jewish gang.

    U.S. money laundering suspects linked to Shas spiritual leader

    By Zvi Zrahiya, Haaretz Correspondent

    Government sources believe that one of the after-effects of the massive money-laundering and illegal organ trading case that broke this week will be a sharp decline in donations to Israeli yeshivas, particularly those linked with the ultra-Orthodox party Shas and its spiritual leader, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.

    Three New Jersey mayors and several rabbis were arrested last Thursday in a sweeping federal investigation into political corruption that also uncovered human kidney sales and money laundering from Brooklyn to Israel.

    Sources say that the wave of donations received by Israel’s Sephardic yeshivas will significantly diminish as the scandal breaks, even by Jewish bodies unrelated to the affair who want to distance themselves from it.

    One of the main suspects in the money laundering case is Rabbi Eliyahu Ben-Haim, who is a close associate of Rabbi David Yosef, Ovadia Yosef’s son.

    Ben Haim is also very active in the Yechavei Da’at organization, headed by Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s family.

    David Yosef heads the Yechavei Da’at kolel, an institute for advanced studies of the Talmud and rabbinic literature, in Jerusalem. Ben-Haim has helped elicit donations from rich U.S. Jews for the institution in the past. These donations are expected to cease.

    Another suspect in the case is Rabbi Edmond Nahum, who is considered to be a close confidant of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef himself. Nahum also transferred donations to the Yosef family.

    The Israel Police is set to investigate several Sephardic yeshivas, among them those linked with Shas, under suspicion of money laundering as related to the case.

    Police sources speculate that the investigation may expand to include banks that may have been involved in the possible money laundering operation.

    Any time a group of people spread over the world who have a secret communications network and an extremely strong code of silence, as the Jews do, is headed for corruption.

    Add to that the Talmudic code of behavior against goyim, and watch out.

    It’s only a few years back that an Ukrainian guest-worker was murdered by Israelis to steal his organs.

    http://www.voicesofpalestine.org/outrageous/organtraffic.asp

    Martin Luther once retold the Roman myth of Cacus in his appeal against the charging of interest (An die Pfarrherrn wider den Wucher zu predigen, Wittenberg 1540, cited by Karl Marx, Capital, 1867).

    Half man, half demon, Cacus lived in a cave and came out only at night to steal oxen. Wishing to mislead his pursuers, Cacus forced the oxen to walk backward into his den so that their footprints made it appear that they had gone out from there. The next morning, when people came looking for their oxen, all they found were footprints. Based on the evidence of these footprints, they concluded that, starting from the cave, their oxen had gone into the middle of a field and disappeared.

    If the owners of the oxen had taken a methodology course at an American university, they might have counted the footprints, measured the depth of each step and run the results through a computer—but they would have arrived at the same wrong conclusion.

    The problem here arises from the fact that reality is more than appearances, and that focusing exclusively on appearances, on the evidence that strikes us immediately and directly, can be extremely misleading. How typical is the error found in this example?

    According to Marx, rather than the exception, this is how most people in our society understand the world. Basing themselves on what they see, hear, and bump into in their immediate surroundings—on footprints of various kinds—they arrive at conclusions that are in many cases the exact opposite of the truth. Most of the distortions associated with bourgeois ideology are of this kind.

    To understand the real meaning of the footprints, the owners of the oxen had to find out what happened the night before and what was going on in the cave that lay just over their horizon.

    In a similar way, understanding anything in our everyday experience requires that we know something about how it arose and developed and how it fits into the larger context or system of which it is a part. Just recognizing this, however, is not enough. For nothing is easier than slipping back into a narrow focus on appearances.

    After all, few would deny that everything in the world is changing and interacting at some pace and in one way or another, that history and systemic connections belong to the real world. The difficulty has always been how to think adequately about them, how not to distort them and how to give them the attention and weight that they deserve.

    Dialectics is an attempt to resolve this difficulty by expanding our notion of anything to include, as aspects of what it is, both the process by which it has become that and the broader interactive context in which it is found. Only then does the study of anything involve one immediately with the study of its history and encompassing system.

    Charging interest on loans was strictly forbidden by the Catholic church in the Middle Ages. Interest of any kind is also forbidden in Islam.

    Isn’t it telling that Judaism allows to charge interest on transactions with non-Jews, although it is forbidden to charge interest on loans made to other Jews?

    The Jew Run ”Workers Paradise” Sovjet

    Everything you ever heard about the jew run Sovjet ”Workers Paradise” is of course nothing but jewish lies. - There was no unemployment in Sovjet and all the other communist dictatorship. Of course there was no unemployed in Sovjet, every non-jew was the jews slaves and slaves are never unemployed.

    How did the jews make the ”workers”, jewish code word for slave, come on time to work? First you pay the workers nickels and dimes, small change. Not enough to live on but so much you must have it to make ends meet. After work you must be wheeling and dealing and stand in line for two hours to maybe get a half loaf of bread. Now you don’t have the time to think about politics, less have any time to do any ”counterrevolutionary activity”.

    lt’s very easy to get the ”workers”, the jews’ slaves to come on time to work in a jew-run Communist dictatorship. One minute late — ten percent off the next paycheck. Two minutes late — 20 percent off the next two paychecks. Three minutes late — 30 percent off the next three paychecks.

    Still don’t get it? Okay, five minutes late — one month in a forced labor camp. Ten minutes late — two months in a forced labor camp. You still don’t get it? Okay, 15 minutes late — three months in a forced labor camp. 20 minute late — six months in a forced labor camp.

    Half an hour late — twelve months in a forced labor camp. You refuse to work at all? Five YEARS in a forced labor camp.

    This is how the jews made the non-jews come on time to work in the jewish ”workers paradise”, carrot-and-stick. What you just read is unique information. To my knowledge none has written about this before. Why l know this is because l came across a Harvard report from the 50’s that had interviewed some 400 non-jews who came out alive from the jews ”workers paradise” Sovjet.

    This is before the jewish fraud PC crap-for-brains bullshit had infested the academia. When l do a search l always add the word Jews and it turned out that one standard-Q in this report was: What do you think of jews?

    One of the responders went thru the roof when asked what he thought of jews. His boss was a good friend and he was half an hour late for work and got 12 months in a forced labor camp. Once you got that sentence the jews didn’t allow you to return to that work or even the same town.

    You have a wife and children? What of it? The jews couldn’t care less. What this responder said more was that the ”judges” that handed out the punishment for being late for work was 80 percent jews, and that jews were NEVER punished the way the non-jews were. The jew-run Sovjet was nothing but one big slave camp for the Russian people. “Workers paradise” my butt.

    “The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish planning and Jewish dissatisfaction. Our Plan is to have a New World Order. What worked so wonderfully in Russia, is going to become Reality for the whole world.” — The American Hebrew Magazine, 10, Sept. 1920

    Marx and Engels followed a German tradition of thought. Marx had adopted the dialectical method from Hegel, who was a Christian, while accepting much of what was written by Feuerbach.

    Lenin opposed Zionism and he was 25% Jewish from his mother’s side.

    It was in fact Stalin, a Gentile, who played a key role in the birth of the state of Israel, by supporting the partition of Palestine and lending the Zionists military and political support. The supply of weapons from the USSR was instrumental for the Zionists during the 1948 Arab–Israeli war. Without this advantage, Israel would have suffered a decisive defeat against the Arab armies.

    In the wake of Israel’s violation of UN resolution 242 after the Six-Day War in 1967, the Soviet Union broke off the diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. At about the same time, Golda Meir had invited all Russian Jews to “move back into their ancestral home”. The Soviets were outraged, since a mass emigration was politically undesirable to them.

    According to an official proclamation of the World Zionist Congress in the year 1969, the US had become the number one partner of Israel.

    Dear RZN Christians,

    For those of you who heard my earlier complaint about Chemtrails over my beloved home in Maine, but did not see the link, here it is.

    @ http://section-13.info/Chemtrail

    Notice in the first few pictures, taken at dusk, there appears to be a bright object flying over. I did not see this object with my eyes, but only noticed it once I viewed the photos.

    After that you will see parallel lines of jet trails covering the mid-day sky. It is so obvious. Then they spread out and form clouds. What is going on? At first I think it is all about weather control, but the last few days have had some stranger stuff still.

    Two nights ago, there was an incredible racket at 3:00 AM. There were what sounded like helicopters, jets and other things moving up in the dense clouds they had created. One even seemed to hover for a time over the barn.

    —–
    The below “C-Span” quote was accepted on good faith at first because it was presented as fact by Jim Kirwan. Instead, it is a PARODY for RZN readers to be aware of.

    Upon further investigation, it turns out that the whole apparently real C-Span footage was “Onion-Span.” And that is not Pennsylvania’s 12 district Rep. On my computer, the video is about 3×5 inches and I didn’t notice the logo at first.

    I wonder why Jim Kirwan presented that as Bona Fide. Maybe the article’s title “Where’s the Rage?” infers that he is attempting to make us angry. I don’t know.

    Below is the “Onion-Span” transcript of the “explanation of House Bill 8791″, as it was read to those about to vote, for or against this piece of legislation, in the US House of Representatives ­ this “Bill” overwhelmingly passed the House.

    “Congress shall now vote for approval of HR 8791, The Homeland Terrorism Preparedness Bill as said bill requests Emergency Response Funding up to and including ­ I’m sorry this section is classified ­ dollars to prepare for a national level terrorist attack and or an attack from CLASSIFIED. Funding for first responder personnel and vehicles would be doubled if said attack leads to 80% of national population, being affected by CLASSIFIED.

    “This funding shall commence with the first attack on CLASSIFIED or the first large-scale outbreak of CLASSIFIED, dependent upon which comes first. Civilian and military units shall be trained in containment and combat of CLASSIFIED ­ including irradiated ­ CLASSIFIED with the possibility of CLASSIFIED ­ airborne ­ CLASSIFIED ­ flesh-eating ­ CLASSIFIED, and or all of the above in such event as CLASSIFIED ­ spewing CLASSIFIED ­ or released or otherwise becomes uncontrollable.

    Friends,

    Below some documents regarding jewish organized crime_Specialty:Human Organs International Traffic.

    First is this now five years old case in which 2 jews where caught.

    I believe that at least one of them is living and working normally in Israel (Eliezer Ramon).

    BRAZIL: Poor Sell Organs to Trans-Atlantic Trafficking Ring
    By Mario Osava

    RIO DE JANEIRO, Feb 23, 2004. (IPS) - At least 30 Brazilians have sold their kidneys to an international human organ trafficking ring for transplants performed in South Africa, with Israel providing most of the funding, says a legislative commission in Brazil.

    The Pernambuco state legislature’s investigative commission began its enquiry in December and has since helped federal police and justice authorities untangle concrete cases of human organ sales.

    Two Israeli citizens, Gedalya Tauber and Eliezer Ramon, and six Brazilians were arrested in Recife, capital of Pernambuco state, in the northeast. They are believed to be active members of the group that recruited people in the area to sell their kidneys, the commission’s chairman, Raimundo Pimentel, told IPS.

    The “sellers” were taken to the South African city of Durban, where the transplant surgeries took place at St. Augustine Hospital. The recipients were mostly Israelis, who receive health insurance reimbursements of 70,000 to 80,000 dollars for life-saving medical procedures performed abroad.

    The Brazilians were recruited in Recife’s impoverished neighbourhoods. The first ones were paid 10,000 per kidney, but as “supply” increased, the payments fell as low as 3,000 dollars, according to Pimentel, who is himself a surgeon in addition to a deputy in the Pernambuco legislature.

    The information obtained by the commission indicates that the trafficking network also sought kidney sellers in Russia and Romania, for renal patients from the United States and Iran, in addition to the Israelis.

    In Brazil, buying and selling human organs is a crime punishable by up to eight years in prison, according to a 1997 law. In case of the death of the “donor”, the sentence can reach 20 years. A person who sells his or her own organs also faces three to eight years behind bars.

    To be legal, donors must provide organs voluntarily through formal channels, with recipients prioritised according to urgency and compatibility. The aim is to prevent the creation of a market in which only the rich can afford life-saving organ transplants..

    Tauber, a retired Israeli police officer, confessed to the legislative commission that he had begun the search for kidney “donors” in Recife around two years ago, in response to the request of a fellow Israeli who promotes surgical transplants in other countries.

    Ivan Bonifacio da Silva, a retired captain of the Pernambuco military police, is one of the Brazilian arrestees. He was Tauber’s first partner in the organ trafficking network. The two met during a course for police in the United States, and they set up a company in the Netherlands, ostensibly for selling weapons and training personnel for private security companies.

    Tauber said he did not think he was committing a crime, given that the transaction is considered legal by his country’s government. And he believed it was a win-win situation: saving the lives of the chronically ill while providing income for people who “are very poor, who die of hunger.”

    The Israeli embassy in Brazil issued a statement Tuesday denying any participation by the Israeli government in the illegal trade of human organs. But it did recognise that its citizens, in emergency cases, can undergo organ transplants in other countries, “in a legal manner, complying with international norms,” and with the financial support of their medical insurance.

    The Israeli stance is at the very least “anti-ethical”, commented Pimentel, adding that trafficking can only take place on a major scale if there is a major source of financing, such as the Israeli health system.

    Nancy Scheper-Hughes, who heads the Organs Watch project at the U.S. University of California, Berkeley, testified to the Pernambuco legislative commission that international trafficking of human organs began some 12 years ago, promoted by Zacki Shapira, former director of a hospital in Tel Aviv.

    Shapira performed more than 300 kidney transplants, sometimes accompanying his patients to other countries, such as Turkey. The recipients are very wealthy or have very good health insurance, and the “donors” are very poor people from Eastern Europe, Philippines and other developing countries, said Scheper-Hughes, who specialises in medical anthropology.

    In his conversation with IPS, Pimentel said that the U.S. expert had noted that it seemed to be widely held that these transactions “save lives and help the poor.”

    The United Nations Convention against Transnational Organised Crime, which covers prevention, enforcement and sanctions in trafficking of humans, includes in its definition of human exploitation the extraction of organs.

    The World Health Organisation has also condemned the practice of selling human body parts, prohibiting the advertisement of organs in exchange for money, and established the principle of equality in terms of human organ donations.

    Human organ sales are illegal in most of the world. But, writes Scheper-Hughes in an article titled “The New Cannibalism”, the sanctions in one country could stimulate trafficking in a neighbouring country. The wealthy patients are willing and able to travel great distances to obtain a transplant.

    In November 2000, the World Medical Association declared that payment for organs or tissue for donation and transplant should be banned. Economic incentive compromises the voluntary nature of the decision and the altruistic basis of the donation.

    In addition to dismantling the organ trafficking ring in Pernambuco, the legislative investigative commission, police and justice authorities revealed the conditions that are necessary for massive trafficking. The resources provided by the Israeli health system “were a determining factor” that allowed the network to function, says Pimentel.

    Nevertheless, in his opinion, the rumours that have caused alarm in many communities in recent years - such as children being kidnapped and then returned days later minus a kidney or other organ - are unfounded. He says organ trafficking is not as widespread as the public seems to believe.

    Organ trafficking requires enormous financial and technical resources, because of problems related to compatibility between donor and recipient, and because transplants cannot be performed in just any hospital, he said.

    According to the information collected by the Pernambuco legislative commission, some of the transplants performed in Durban cost 200,000 dollars. A patient spending so much money would not agree to the procedure unless it were under excellent hospital conditions and had a high probability of success, concluded the surgeon-lawmaker.

    This is the South African counterpart in the same case.

    SA police smash ‘body-part trade’

    Two people have appeared in a South African court, charged with illegal trafficking of human organs.

    They are accused of being part of an international syndicate which buys body parts from poor people in Brazil and Israel for use in South Africa.

    The ring allegedly supplies kidneys to surgeons who perform illegal transplants at South African hospitals.

    Police say the syndicate offers donors about $10,000 per kidney, which are then sold for up to $120,000.

    In many Western countries, there are long waiting lists for human organs such as kidneys, livers and bone marrow.

    South Africa hospitals have a worldwide reputation for their expertise in the field of organ transplants.

    Bail

    Nine Brazilians and two Israelis have also reportedly been arrested in north-eastern Brazil in connection with the organ ring.

    “In all, they managed to talk 30 men into selling one of their kidneys,” said Wilson Salles Damazio, head of the Federal Police branch in Pernambuco state.

    He said that those who passed medical tests were sent to South Africa, where their organs were removed, before flying back home.

    South African police have interviewed several Brazilians and Israelis staying in Durban, allegedly brought there to sell their organs.

    Israeli citizen Agania Robel, who is 41, was reportedly arrested after undergoing a kidney transplant.

    According to The Star newspaper, it is alleged that he bought the kidney through the syndicate.

    Mr Robel was granted bail of 5,000 rand ($800) by the Durban magistrate.
    Sushan Meir, 49, a South African of Israeli origin, was granted bail of 15,000 rand ($2,400) for allegedly being involved in a kidney-transplant transaction.

    Police are expected to turn their attention next to medical workers in two Durban hospitals.

    St Augustine’s hospital has confirmed that it is helping police with their inquiries.
    The investigating officer, Captain Helberg, has said that the investigation into the matter does not involve the hospital being party to any illegal transactions.

    Investigators believe the illegal trade has been going on for more than a year and more arrests are expected.

    “We are looking at members across the globe. We have had successes in Brazil, Israel and South Africa, but we suspect it is much wider,” said Police spokesperson
    Mary Martins-Engelbrecht.

    Second case, from 2002.

    Israel Kills Palestinian Boys, Steals Organs for Transplants (JAN 2002)

    AL-KHALIL (IRNA) - The Zionist state has tacitly admitted that doctors at the Israeli Forensic Institute at Abu Kabir had extracted the vital organs of three Palestinian teenage children killed by the Israeli Army nearly ten days ago.

    Zionist Minister of Health Nessim Dahhan said in response to a question by Arab member of the Zionist Parliament ‘Knesset’, Ahmed Teibi, on Tuesday that he couldn’t deny that organs of Palestinian youths and children killed by the Israeli forces were taken out for transplants or scientific research.

    “I couldn’t say for sure that something like that (taking out the organs) didn’t happen.”

    Teibi said he had received credible evidence proving that Israeli doctors at the Forensic Institute extracted such vital organs as the heart, kidneys, and liver from the bodies of Palestinian youths and children killed by the Israeli Army in Gaza and the West Bank.

    The Israeli authorities normally detain the bodies of martyred Palestinians for a few days without any explanation.

    The Israeli Army on December 30 killed three Palestinian boys, aged 14-15 near Khan Younis in unclear circumstances.

    The army issued conflicting reports on the killing, while Palestinian sources charged that Israeli troops murdered the three unarmed boys in cold blood.

    The bodies of the three boys were handed over to the Palestinians for burial on 6 January.

    However, shortly before burial, Palestinian medical authorities examined the bodies and found out that the main vital organs were missing from the bodies.

    The Israeli media have nearly completely ignored the affair.

    ==============================================
    Israeli Occupation Authorities Illegally Harvesting Organs of Palestinian Children

    by Saira Soufan

    “Rabbi Ginsburgh asked rhetorically: ‘If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to dave him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value’, he explained. ‘There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life’.”

    (Prof. Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky, “Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel”, Pluto Press, London 1999, page 62)

    The latest face of Israeli terrorism was revealed during a live interview with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat by Al Jazeera Television.

    President Arafat has accused the Zionist apartheid regime of murdering Palestinian infants, children, and youths and extricating their vital organs for transplants.

    “They murder our kids and use their organs as spare parts` Why is the whole world silent? Israel takes advantage of this silence to escalate it’s oppression and terror against our people,” stressed President Arafat.

    During the interview on Monday, January 14th, President Arafat held up photos of the mutilated bodies of the children. “I’m not worried about myself”, as the President is under house arrest, “I’m worried about the Palestinian people who have been under siege for the past 15 months.”

    Israel admitted that doctors at the L. Greenberg Institute of Forensic Medicine at Abu Kabir had harvested the organs of 3 Palestinian youths killed by the Israel army near Khan Younis. Attempting to cross the border between Palestine and Israel, the 15 and 17 year old boys were struck down by tank missiles courtesy of the Israeli militia.

    Palestinians are in need of border crossing in order to find any menial work for pay with which to feed and support their families. The bodies of Khan Younis boys were not immediately returned for burial by the Israeli Occupation Authorities.

    After 10 days the bodies were returned to their families for burial but with their organs and even their eyes removed.

    This is not a new act of terrorism inflicted upon the Palestinian people. The illegal harvesting of the organs of Palestinian soldiers and freedom fighters has been documented since before the 1990’s.

    Upon return of the soldiers’ bodies to their mourning families, the pillage of body parts is discovered during the burial process. The empty cavities have been filled with garbage such as cotton wool, garden hoses, and broomsticks, then sewn up as a result of a so-called” autopsy”.

    In an unusual and unpublicized event in 1998, a Scotsman, Alistair Sinclair, died under mysterious circumstances in the Ben-Gurion Airport lockup. Mr. Sinclair’s parents sued the Israelis upon finding their son’s heart and other organs missing. A replacement heart and organs were sent to his mother, who does not believe that these are those of her son’s.

    The Health Ministry officials said on January 3rd, that they have no intention of taking action against Professor Yehuda Hiss, Director of the Institute of Forensic Medicine at Abu Kabir over the retention of the harvested vital organs and body parts of the innocent children and soldiers.

    Furthermore, the Health Ministry Associate Director-General Yitzhak Berlovich has displaced the investigation over the mutilation of the dead using the funds instead to renovate the building of the Institute.

    The Israeli Authorities have made no apologies or in depth investigations into these incidents or others as this would appear as an admission of guilt of their terrible atrocities. Illegal harvesting of organs is an international crime and pure and simple terrorism toward humanity.

    “Good behavior is NOT AFRAID of magistrates; only CRIMINALS have anything to fear.” …

    Yes, but WHO decides who and what constitutes the definition of ‘criminal’ ?

    The Pentagon, I heard, has just clarified their classification of ‘terrorist’, and have stated that peaceful protesting is now become ‘Low-level Terrorism’…

    And when we are classified as criminals,… as ‘home-grown’ terrorists,… as perpetrators of ‘hate-speech’ and of incitement to racial hatred towards ‘Jews’…

    Will only the criminals have to fear then ??

    When Mel Gibson made his motion picture about Christ’s Passion… A certain rabbi - Rabbi David Feldman of ‘Jews Against Anti-Semitism’ had this to say…

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    “Under section 802 of the 2001 Patriot Act, any crime which endangers human life is an act of domestic terrorism.

    “Mel Gibson’s incitement of anti-semitism is a civil disobedience crime which endangers human life, and under the Patriot Act - ‘The Passion’ is an act of domestic terrorism.

    “We are hereby calling on (our buddies) John Ashcroft, the Department of Homeland Security, The Dept. of Justice, Tom Ridge - to arrest Mel Gibson as a terrorist,…

    “… confiscate all prints of ‘The Passion’, confiscate all materials related to the film as ‘Terrorist Paraphenalia’, and shut down every terrorist hate site on the internet supporting the film.”

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    First you should ask yourself, “WHO controls this ‘magistrate’ ?”…, “Do they hold Christ as Lord ?”

    If the Government is run CONTRARY to the Word of God, then what ?… Here, listen to this; some food for thought regarding what these people think about us :

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    “A cultist is one who has a strong belief in the Bible, and the second coming of Christ;

    Who frequently attends Bible studies; who has a high level of financial giving to a Christian cause;

    Who home-schools for their children; who has accumulated survival foods and has a strong belief in the second-amendment; and who distrusts big government…

    ANY of these might qualify a person as a cultist, but certainly more than one of these would cause us to look at this person as a threat, and his family as being in a risk situation that qualifies for government interference.”
    - June 26/1999… U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, on ‘60 Minutes’

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    Are YOU a cultic terrorist just because your government says that you are ? Am I ?

    Third and last one, a citizen from Scotland mentioned in passing above.

    Was a Scotsman Murdered That A Jew Might Live?

    The highly similar fate of Scottish tourist Alastair Sinclair does seem credible:

    Moreover, [Jerusalem District Court Judge Ruth] Orr was well within her rights to be skeptical of the pathological findings of [government pathologist Dr. Yehuda] Hiss, who has long been the subject of controversy as director of Israel Institute for Forensic Medicine, at Abu Kabir.

    Last November, a local Tel Aviv paper Ha’ir ran a 12-page expose of Abu Kabir and revealed how the national lab allows medical students to practice on bodies sent there for autopsies, and transfers body parts for transplants without permission from the family of the deceased.

    The family of Alastair Sinclair, a Scottish tourist who hanged himself in an Israeli jail, was forced to bring suit for the return of missing body parts.

    University of Glasgow pathologists who did an autopsy at the request of Sinclair’s family, found that it had been returned without a heart (which they suspect was used for a transplant) and without the crucial bone needed to confirm the claim that he died from hanging.

    Chapter XV - The Duties Of The Citizen, from
    “Catholic Principles of Politics”

    “The obligation of the citizen to obey civil laws does not exhaust his duties to the State. So important is the State and its functions that it gives rise to a special kind of justice. This is called by the moral theologians LEGAL JUSTICE, and it is commonly defined as that virtue which inclines the citizen to render to the community what is due it for the common good. This means not only obedience to the laws, but all those actions, political and social, which are necessary for the common welfare. Legal justice binds both the ruler and the citizen.

    It obliges the former to make the common welfare the object of all his official acts. It obliges the citizen and the public official alike to comply with the laws, and to give due consideration to the needs of the State in all their actions and relationships.”

    Some time ago, KathJ wrote that “Catholicism, Protestantism, and atheism, like all other philosophies, speak the same language. One understands the arguments of the other, and in spite of all their controversies they can communicate with each other.”

    Furthermore, political Catholicism and Statism, rooted as they are in the same European history and legal/political wranglings between Papacy and State in terms of centralized domination and control of the Western European societies by Pope-Emperors, King-Popes, elite clerics as part of royalty and nobility castes, are the very ancient regimes that the Colonial Americans from all parts of Europe sought to escape and won their war of independence from.

    Fr. Joseph, this is still America, a Free Republic under occupation by the Judeo-Zionists, our battered Constitution and Bill of Rights are still the supreme law of the land not Eurocratic - Papal Statism and Communitarianism. The practical underpinnings of this Constitution and related foundational documents are from the legal traditions broadly called “English Common Law”.

    Statism
    The political expression of altruism is collectivism or statism, which holds that man’s life and work belong to the state—to society, to the group, the gang, the race, the nation—and that the state may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good.

    Statism
    What is statism?
    Under statism, government is no longer a policeman, but a gang of thugs with the legal power to initiate force in any manner they please against a legally disarmed citizen.
    What are some examples of statism?

    Variants of statism include: socialism, nazism (national socialism), theocracy, [pure] democracy, communism, fascism, tribalism, etc.

    What is the key principle underlying statism?

    In form many of these systems differ, in theory and blood stained practice they all unite upon the same fundamental collectivist ethical principle: man is not an end to himself, but is only a tool to serve the ends of others. Whether those “others” are a dictator’s gang, the nation, society, the race, (the) god(s), the majority, the community, the tribe, etc., is irrelevant — the point is that man in principle must be sacrificed to others.

    What is the opposite of statism?

    The opposite of statism is capitalism.

    How does capitalism differ from statism?

    Only capitalism declares that each and every man, may live his own life for his own happiness, as an end to himself, not by permission of others, but by right, and that government’s sole responsibility is to protect those rights, and never violate them, because they are inalienable.

    http://www.ligonier.org/tabletalk/2008/9/1091_Statism

    Statism
    By R. C. Sproul

    “A decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered….” In Luke 2, the well-known passage introducing the nativity story, the title accorded to the Roman emperor is Caesar Augustus. …[W]e note Octavius’ explicit change of his personal name to the title Caesar Augustus. This indicates the emerging dimension of the emperor cult in Rome, by which those who were elevated to the role of emperor were worshiped as deities.

    To be called “august” in pagan Rome would mean to be clothed with supreme dignity, to which is owed the reverence given to the sacred. *The elevation of the emperor in Rome to this kind of status was the ancient zenith of statism.*

    …[D]uring the twilight of Schaeffer’s career, I posed this question to him: “Dr. Schaeffer, what is your biggest concern for the future of the church in America?” Without hesitation, Dr. Schaeffer turned to me and spoke one word: “Statism.”

    Schaeffer’s biggest concern at that point in his life was that the citizens of the United States were beginning to invest their country with supreme authority, such that the free nation of America would become one that would be dominated by a philosophy of the supremacy of the state.

    In statism, we see the suffix “ism,” which indicates a philosophy or worldview. A decline from statehood to statism happens when the government is perceived as or claims to be the ultimate reality. This reality then replaces God as the supreme entity upon which human existence depends.

    In the nineteenth century, Hegel argued in his extensive and complex study of Western history that progress represents the unfolding in time and space of the absolute Idea (Hegel’s vague understanding of God), which would reach its apex in the creation of the Prussian state.

    The assumption that Hegel made in the nineteenth century was made before the advent of Hitler’s Third Reich, Stalin’s Russia, and Chairman Mao’s communist China. These nations reached an elevation of statism never dreamed of by Hegel in his concept of the Prussian state.

    In America, we have a long history of valuing the concept of the separation of church and state. **This idea historically referred to a division of labors between the church and the civil magistrate. However, initially both the church and the state were seen as entities ordained by God and subject to His governance. In that sense, the state was considered to be an entity that was “under God.”**

    What has happened in the past few decades is the obfuscation of this original distinction between church and state, so that today the language we hear of separation of church and state, when carefully exegeted, communicates the idea of the separation of the state from God.

    In this sense, it’s not merely that the state declares independence from the church, it also declares independence from God and presumes itself to rule with autonomy.

    The whole idea of a nation under God has been challenged again and again, and we have seen the exponential growth of government in our land, particularly the federal government, so that the government now virtually engulfs all of life. Where education once was under the direction of local authorities, it now is controlled and directed by federal legislation.

    The economy that once was driven by the natural forces of the market has now come under the strict control of the federal government, which not only regulates the economy, but considers itself responsible for controlling it.

    Where we have seen the largest measure of the loss of liberty is with respect to the function of the church. The church is still somewhat tolerated in America (in a way it was not tolerated in Mao’s Red China and under Stalin), it is tolerated only when it remains outside of the public square.

    In other words, the church has been relegated to a status not unlike that given to the native Americans, where the tribes were allowed to continue to exist as long as they functioned safely on a reservation, outside of any significant influence on the government.

    So although the church has not been banished completely by the statism that has emerged in America, it has been effectively banished from the public square.

    Throughout the history of the Christian church, Christianity has always stood over against all forms of statism. Statism is the natural and ultimate enemy to Christianity because it involves a usurpation of the reign of God.

    If Francis Schaeffer was right — and each year that passes makes his prognosis seem all the more accurate — it means that the church and the nation face a serious crisis in our day.

    In the final analysis, if statism prevails in America, it will mean not only the death of our religious freedom, but also the death of the state itself. We face perilous times where Christians and all people need to be vigilant about the rapidly encroaching elevation of the state to supremacy.

    A horrible story, truly horrible.

    Something clicked last night.

    These people are conscious of God but oppose… THEY CONSCIENTIOUSLY OPPOSE GOD.

    I believe there is something truly dark underpinning this whole way of life they live.

    Their obsession with numbers is because they are cosmos followers, they know the flow of things beyond that which can be comprehensible by any rational.

    Ancient knowledge, that was for the people has been kept in few hands.

    They do things in coordination with time, strange synchronicities.

    I believe there is a collective conscience, the presence of truth in every mind together, the inherent knowing and feelings we have when things are wrong… in unison a powerful force against darkness. Jesus Christ was the fruition of this in human form from the Almighty, that men and women would respect and love one another as a reflection of oneself. To be good to one another and not laugh at another’s downfall but to help them up.. to be as one.

    This New World Order is ONE but through a satanic ideology. It twists the truth that all are one, this is what Christ brings.

    The divide and conquer is their weapon of mass destruction, chaos and fragmentation, dis-unity and dis-belief. Souless vessels in limbo lost without a light in their darkest hours.

    They are obsessed with death, wretched demons with self loathing and wicked affliction.

    They are obsessed with the dark, cheaters of life, killers of spirit and envious of might, The All-mighty. They forget they are a part of this beautiful celestial universe. Like a cancerous tumor eating away at the breath our life. They forget who they are and in their perdition wander through darkness and shadows with backs turned to the light.

    They split their inward knowing and delude themselves to think what they do is right.

    Shards of splintered mirrors, puzzles with incomplete pictures.

    They are MAD, these wretched demons of our earth.

    The truth sets all free, FREE FROM PURGATORY.

    Jews and their code words - by Hoff

    The highest worldly power you can get is to control the state. There is nothing complicated about the jewish conspiracy, the jews want to control all the 200 states in the whole world. To take control of your state - AND - you not understanding that the jews control your state, is the jewish conspiracy.

    Why the jewish conspiracy works is because most people do not understand that jews control their state, and that is because the jews will do ANYTHING to hide from you that they control your state. What you don’t know you can’t do anything about.

    What the jews do, is that they use code words to hide what they are up to. Once you see the big picture, that the jews want to control all the 200 states of the world and understand what the jewish code words mean, then everything becomes very clear and transparent.

    The jewish Marxist-Leninist mumbo-jumbo is all about confusing people from understanding what communism is really about - jews taking control of the state. But once you understand the jewish code words in Marxism-Leninism there is nothing complicated about the mumbo-jumbo. Bourgeoisie, class enemy, counter-revolutionary, kulak, enemy of the state, and what not smear-slander words in Marxism-Leninism are all jewish code words for anyone that is resisting the jews taking control of the state.

    The jewish fraud of Communism is all about jews taking control of the state - with out the (m)asses understanding that jews controls their state, hence the Marxist-Leninist mumbo-jumbo bulls–t. lf you don’t know the Communist vocabulary the word “Masses” is a jewish favorite code word for the stupid and ignorant non-jewish people — that would be you.

    Before you read this article you didn’t know that Communism is a jewish fraud; second, you didn’t know that Sovjet 1917 to 1991 was run lock, stock and barrel by jews, hence you are either stupid or ignorant.

    And, to the jews it doesn’t matter either way, simply because you don’t know that the jews control the state, and that is the way the jews wants it, one big (m)asses — in essence one big dumbed down population. The dumber and ignorant the better for the jews.

    You don’t have to read any book about Communism to understand what Communism really is, l just explained it to you what it’s all about. Jews take control of the state and hide it from the (m)asses, and to do that the jews uses code words, ie the jews smear-slander and lie about anyone resisting the jews taking control of the state.

    Whatever the jews do it’s the same modus operandi, first: How do we take control of the state and hide it from the (m)asses? Jews invented the jewish frauds Communism and Zionism, but they didn’t invent all the other political ideologies.

    What the jews do is that they infiltrate every single political party and organisation in the whole world, and then twist the policy to what is good for the jews. To hide what they are doing the jews ALWAYS uses code words.

    ”Liberal” is jewish code word for a non-jewish communist in the western world. Every single issue which every single ”liberal” party is pushing is EXACTLY the same as the hardcore Marxist-Leninist are pushing. Go on, prove me wrong.

    What the jews did was they started calling some of their Communist propaganda-pamphlets (what you call Paper) ”Liberal”, changed the vocabulary, and just keep pushing their jewish fraud Communism, but with new and confusing code words. Racist, nazi, bigot, homofobia, right wing extremist, the bogus word ”anti-semite”, hater, intolerant, etc., etc., are all the same as the jewish smear-slander words in Marxism-Leninism for any non-jew who resist the jews taking control of the state.

    What the jews have done is that they have infiltrated every single ”liberal” party in the western world and twisted the party politics to what is good for the jews. The MO, Modus Operandi, is exactly the same as in the jewish fraud Communism, the jews ALWAYS say the opposite to what the jews really mean.

    Any jew communist-liberal will tell you with tears in their eyes how much the liberal-communists love all people, and how tolerant they are, and the next second they will spew hate over - all with jewish code words.

    Of course, the jews don’t stop there, to infiltrate all the once true liberal parties. The jews infitrates all the conservative parties as well. The once conservative party of my country is today competing with the hardcore Communist and ”liberal” about who can be most pro-mass invasion and most pro-homosex.

    The second largest morning paper of my country was a conservative paper, today the very same paper is totally pro-mass invasion and pro-homosex. l saw this happen with my own eyes, the paper changed owners and over night it went Communist.

    What amazes me the most is how easy it is to change how people think and act. The once true liberal party of my country went thru a major change in the early 90s. l discussed this with a friend’s mother, and she said she didn’t understand a thing, this was not the liberal party she had known all her life.

    Back then l didn’t know the first thing about jews, but today l know what happened. Some jews took control of the party and twisted it into a ”liberal”-communist party. This party is directed from Tel Aviv. This party’s agenda is today the jewish communist agenda.

    There is nothing complicated about this once you understand that jews own the whole jewish propaganda-machine in the western world — what you call ”media”; that the jews want to control all 200 states in the world; and that the jews don’t want you to understand that the jews controls the state. All you have to look for is the smear-slander and lying code words.

    The more anyone is smear-slandered the more they are resisting the jews taking control of their state.

    What are the number one smear-slander victims in the jew owned propaganda-machine? The Arab world, Iran’s president, and North Korea. So where do the jews have least control of the state? The more ”democracy” your country is the more the jews controls YOUR state, but you don’t know that do you?

    ”Democracy” is jewish code word for - “We the jews control the state”. Most jews know that ”democracy” is a jewish code word for: Jews control the state, and you don’t even know that the jews uses code words did you?

    ”Worker” is Communist jews code word for “Our Goyim Slaves”. Go on, just watch the smug smile on the jews faces next time they say ”Worker”. The smug smile is because the jews speaks about YOU to your face but in code words. lf l was a jew l would also have a smug look on my face.

    Think about it, here the jews have been in our face in at least 50 years on Talmud Vision, TV, promoting jewish Communism, and relentless talking about ”workers”, and what the jews meant all the time was: Our goyim slaves. l think that is funny. And if l were a jew l would be rolling over on the floor laughing.

    Ohhhh … Watch the smug smile on the jews face next time they say ”Liberal”. That is jewish code word for “stupid goyim that will help us the jews take control of the state and then this stupid goyim will enslave himself.” ”Liberal” is jewish code word and it means exactly the same thing as ”worker”. Of course the jews thinks that’s funny, hence the smug smile.

    lf you call yourself ”liberal” or Communist than it’s time for you to wake up and start using your brain, That is the body part between your ears. Next time you hear a jew say ”liberal” or “communist” with a smug look on their face, they are talking about you - not with you.

    Whatever the jewish ”intellectuals” are doing it’s all about how they can take control of your state - and hide that jews have taken control of your state. Whatever the jews say, it’s always with code words. The trick to get on top of these criminal jews is to understand that the jews want to take control of your state and to hide it the jews uses code words.

    Understand that and spot the jews’ code word, and now you can do some real fighting the jews. First you find the problem and then you can solve the jewish problem.

    Code words is one of the jews 30 secret weapons.

    lf Ted Kenedy is on the jews No-Fly list, l guess anyone can get on that list. And yes, it’s the jews who put Americans on that No-Fly list. Land of the free? More like the jews’ slaves. The jew mafia controls America lock, stock and barrel, but most Americans are too stupid or ignorant to understand that jews control the American state and that is just how the jews want it to be.

    Dear Man of Peace,

    God the Holy Spirit causes such “clicks” within one’s mind and heart. Like a Divine Light Bulb Flash, one is Graced so see the Truth regarding any particular or ALL aspects of God’s Creation and, by extention, His Divine Will.

    “Rosenthal says, ‘Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer…and we are his chosen people. Lucifer is very much alive.” - from
    http://www.rense.com/general66/prot2.htm

    And, through the esoteric doctrines of their ‘Kabbalah’, they extend their personal control, via Lucifer and his evil DEMONS, over people via world-wide Masonry which is, in a way, Lucifer’s ‘Catholic Church’ throughout our contemporary World.

    ‘Yes, Lucifer is God’

    Dear Man of Peace,

    So, with that Divine ‘Flash Cube’ having gone off for you, in its remaining Spiritual Glow, consider the words of God Incarnate, Jesus Christ, Who said

    “ALAS for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You who travel over sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when you have him you make him TWICE AS FIT FOR HELL as you are.” (N.J. politicians are finding that out).

    “ALAS for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You who clean the outside of the cup and dish and leave the inside full of extortion and intemperance. Blind Pharisee! Clean the inside of cup and dish so that the outsidemay become clean as well.

    “ALAS for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You who are like whitewashed tombs that look handsome on the outside, but inside are full of DEAD MEN’S BONES AND EVERY KIND OF CORRUPTION. In the same way you appear to people from the outside like good honest men, but inside you are full of HYPOCRISY and LAWLESSNESS.”

  35. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 11:15 am

    The ‘key’ to unravelling the ‘Mystery of Iniquity’ which is the ‘mysterious nature’ of EVIL consists simply of recognizing that in adopting the notion within any created being’s mind, thoughts and desires that he/she/it KNOWS WHAT IS BETTER for that seen or unseen created being than does the Infinite Mind of an infinitely All-good God and All-good Creator, those created entities SEVERE themselves from the infinite potentials of Divine Goodness and Divine Life.

    While it may take some inner effort on OUR own part to make the decision to OBEY God’s Wisdom, Commands, Guidance and Instructions to us - Commands and Instructions which seem to us as ‘demands’ upon us, if we choose to make the efforts to OBEY God and implement His Divine Wisdom and those Divine ‘demands’ upon us, His Divine “Cause and Effect” Principle He has woven into His Own Creation will bring about His All-good desired Divine DESIGNS for us all.

    - Fr. Joseph

  36. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 11:18 am

    Truly, any man, woman or child TRULY ‘Reaps what is sown’ and ‘The workmen get their wages.’

    The Mother of God’s, the Blessed Virgin Mary’s words “Do Whatever He Tells You.” are simply spoken words of immaculately pure and brilliant DIVINE WISDOM to every last member of our Human Race. Those are words spoken with immaculately pure and brilliant Divine Wisdom to the entire Human Race as GOD’S OWN ‘NEW EVE’ for and to the entire Human Race and Human Family here on earth.

    - Fr. Joseph

  37. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 11:25 am

    The only real, true and lasting Blessed Happiness anyone and everyone of us can obtain and possess is but to ACCEPT these created natures of ours and that which our God and Creator desires for us TO DO with these created human natures and lives of ours with which He has endowed all of us.

    In our willful COOPERATING with Him in implementing His Divine Will for us, both as individuals as well as entire societies and entire nations of people living within this ‘All’ of His Own Creating, we all can thus become CO-CREATORS with and All-Good and All-loving God.

    If we were but to allow ourselves the spiritual LIBERTY to accept these created natures of ours AS THEY ARE - refusing the notion that we can become ‘gods’ and/or ‘goddesses’ and REJECTING altogether any obsessive thought to achieve or accomplish anything BEYOND our own God-given human natural powers - which is to say to LIVE OUR LIVES humbly and reverently before the Omniscient Divine Sight of our God, Creator and Father in Heaven, we would ALL then experience the All-good God’s Infinite GOODNESS abiding in, with and amongst us all.

    Hence, THAT is the meaning of the Lord’s Own Words in teaching US how to pray and to relate to GOD so as to relate to each other with a Divine-like quality

    “…Thy Will be done ON EARTH as it is in Heaven.”

  38. a Man of peace July 29, 2009 @ 11:53 am

    To Fr. Joseph,

    In my view and as I can see here amongst others,

    The Bible has such length and depth of wisdom that even a skeptic can’t deny its truths. All that we see around us is reflected in the Book.

    The words you posted speak eternal truths.

    I have perceived this luciferian system for many years and in subtle ways. It is heart breaking and frustrating to see it, like opening Pandora’s box and all those demons fly out with no way to reverse, the gift of innocence forever gone.

    The people that have all been a part of this global conspiracy are insane and self-deluded, Orwell named it doublethink in 1984. The ability to contradict truth in mind and carry on in a lie believing it to be true. This is the way politicians have navigated and continue to do so.

    The system does not educate for virtue but financial success, a dog-eat-dog design. An abundance of superficial entertainment, novelty gum, no enlightenment or wisdom. It is a mad world they have cultivated for themselves through the media. It is the BIGGEST terrorist they have.

    The only reason they get away with such nonsense is because the masses allow it. A large majority of people still remain asleep to many of the lies and falsehoods of history. This ignorance shapes the way of things to come.

    The Mass AWAKENING is the second coming of Christ. How many more wars does it take before people awake?

    Say, for instance, we are all passengers on a bus, and the driver is a few spark plugs short of a picnic, do we stand by and let him drive us off the cliff? And the irony is we pay for the ride, through taxes in this usury system. It’s our mass acquiescence that allows the drivers to continue steam rolling over others.

    This is the Pandora’s box that must be broken down, it is a house of cards they sit on, but it takes everyone of us on the ground to shake it from the bottom to the top down.

    Peacefully.

    A Comment In Two Parts - Part I
    ****************************************
    Excellent expose Nathanael!

    I was exposed to priests in the Catholic church from age 5 on through a Jesuit high school AND sevral years at a Jesuit university and beyond.

    In ALL of those years and my exposure to literlly hundreds of priests of all ages ethnic origins nationalities and orders - I never EVER ONCE even HEARD any REMOTE rumors of priests involved in money laundering or organ selling or ANY such high crimes - or for that matter child molestation (although I am convinced that it did rarely occurr albeit in frequency FAR FAR less that in public schools where I also have experience) ONLY the evil Jew mind could even consider such an abysmally evil act.

    Can you just immagine how many demonic filthy rabid rabbis are actually involved in serious crime - since DLE stats indicate that less than 10% of these Rabbit criminals are actually exposed andbrought to justice for their horrid crimes.

    In just the past 2 weeks I have witnessed more so-called Rabbis indicted for ultra serious crimes than I have even heard ALLEGEDED of Priests in my ENTIRE LIFE!

    What these Rabbis teach is the ‘religion’ of the Devil and the Talmud and Torah are the books of the Devil. You must either belive ALL of the word of our Lord in the Gospels of the NT or NONE of it.

    You CANNOT Have it both ways. Are you listening - demon Hagee and your demonic followers of blasphemy?

    I suggest that you ask your pastor or priest WHY he has NOT read John 8 from the pulpit. What does he fear - retribution from the Jews for exposing the WORD OF GOD -THE TRUTH THAT SETS MEN FREE?

    I have not heard from ANY neighbor or friend who hs EVER heard in modern times so much as a PHRASE from that all important and simple plain language expose of the TRUE EVIL NATURE OF THE Jews by Christ.

    The truth will set you free! Ever wonder where that was said? ALSO IN JOHN! Why is it so avoided - because the TRUTH is often upsetting to the filthy Jews?

    Are we so willing to see all of our most sacred beliefs trashed - just so we won’t embarrass these Sons Of Satan who hate us and Christ?

    Read this and remember it well - as in the future these passages may very well be legislated as “HATE SPEECH” by the Jews who control every aspect of our daily lives - INCLUDING the PUBLISHERS of the Bibles.

    Addressing the JEWS - AND NOT JUST THE PHARASEES!!!! - our Lord stated these truths which have been so CONSPICUOUSLY TOTALLY ELIMINATED from the pulpits of EVERY ‘large’ church in America.

    Try to remember EVEN ONCE IN YUR LIFE hearing this part of Scripture in ANY American church!

    “YE ARE OF YOUR FATHER THE DEVIL, AND THE LUSTS OF YOUR FATHER YE WILL DO. HE WAS A MURDERER FROMTHE BEGINNING, AND ABODE NOT IN THE TRUTH, BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. WHEN HE SPEAKETH A LIE - HE SPEAKETH OF HIS OWN; FOR HE IS A LIAR,AND THE FATHER OF IT.”

    Even in my somewhat ‘tainted’ Schofield Bible you will find this ominous supportive damnation of the Jews in general. And I QUOTE EXACTLY!

    THAT THIS SATANIC FATHERHOOD CANNOT BE LIMITED TO THE PHARASEES IS MADE CLEAR IN Jn 3: 8-10.

    SO - do NOT EVER let any Jew or Jew puppet use his lies to convince you that Christ was addressing ONLY the hight priests and Pharasees. CHRIST was addressing THE Jews - PERIOD!

    A Comment In Two Parts - Part II
    ****************************************
    IF you are are a REAL CHristian - then ask WHY this passage quoted in the Part I Comment has NEVER been read to you in church?

    For THIS PASSAGE is the CORNERSTONE of PROOF that Christ damned the Jews for their evil.

    READ THE GOSPEL OF JOHN and LEARN that the Jews wanted to murder Christ - an eternal hatred of Him and tje Christian belief that these Jews to this day work feverishly with their evil and lies and murders to finally totally control and destroy us.

    Now that you KNOW the truth - will you continue to mock Christ like the fithy ilk of Hagees Zionists - or will you stand up for the TRUTH as spoken by our Lord?

    YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS.

    OH and BTW - PLEASE - do not forget to SUPPORT Nathanael in his needs to do the great job he does, week in and week out.

    IF - you really belive he is doing a VERY important job of educating our clueless masses - then HELP THIS MAN WITH REAL MONEY!

    Every dollar goes to do something IMPORTANT for ALL of us.

    There is not ONE READER who can claim that he cannot ‘afford’ a $20 bill to secure his or his children’s future freedoms.

    If pervert Marxist treasonous draft-dodging Zionist loving Christian hating scum like Jew - David “the horrible” Horowitz - can get other scum to send him MILLIONS - for God sake - can’t you help a TRULY GODLY man do TRULY good works?

    This man has sacrificed all material things to warn us. You should be ashamed to let a man like this down!

    Dear Man of Peace,

    It was U.S. 5 Star General Douglas MacArthur who confided to one Cathlolic Bishop Fulton Sheen during the Bishop’s visit to Allied Occupied Japan,

    “The World Struggle is NOT political or economic. Rather, it is religious and theological. It is either God or atheism.”

    So beteen Br. Kapner, Joe Cortina, yourself and others - ALL OF US at our particular place in this global ‘Spiritual Battlefield’ ARE shooting up our own spiritual ’star shells’ so as in order to help our fellow spiritual ‘comrades-in-arms’ in order to GIVE LIGHT so that each on of us gets to SEE the slithering enemy encroaching towards us or charging en-masse at us.

    And it is left to us - those of us whom the Lord Himself in His Divine Knowledge and Omniscient Oversight from His Heavens has spiritual ‘air-lifted’ and/or ‘airborned’ ONTO this global spiritual battlefield - to ‘LIGHT ‘EM UP’ and ‘MOW ‘EM DOWN’ and to ‘SHOW NO QUARTER’.

    Now then, we have our ‘Orders’:

    ‘Hold At All Costs!’

    and by gosh, by golly - with the Help of God Himself - that is EXACTLY what we’re gonna do.

    - Fr. Joseph

  42. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 1:08 pm

    Now look, none of us are going to WIN this global Spiritual World War by ourselves. Each one of us can only DO what we can do with the talents, abilities and resources readily available and at our disposal.

    But all of us GOTTA DO what we CAN do. And God Himself CANNOT ‘blame us’ for NOT accomplishing that which we in NO WAY can accomplish.

    We can ‘fail’ on account of the vast quantities of material levied against us OR on account of the vast quantities of personnel sent against us.

    Hence, we can LOSE our own spiritual battles and engagements SO AS LONG as we DO NOT relinquish nor surrender our FAITHFULNESS TO and FAITH IN God Himself.

    We don’t cause ‘Miracles’ - that is something entirely left to the Realms of Heaven and the Supernatural. And the Realms of Heaven and all that is truly Supernatural belong to Him Who is the Almighty Creator of both Heaven and the earth.

    So, if any of us “buy it”, that will occur with the Lord’s Full Divine and Omniscient Knowledge.

    - Fr. Joseph

  43. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 1:18 pm

    Now let me tell you all of an honest-to-goodness spiritual/mystical vision I was granted by the Grace of God about 10 years ago. (And yes, you can say ‘Fr. Joe - you’ve been smoking DOPE!)

    I’m ONLY sharing that particular personal and private vision that was mine in order to help ALL OF YOU in keeping your Morale and your Determination up.

    The Vision:

    While in an attentive state ‘of spirit’, I beheld this regal royal red colored CARPET unrolled. It was trimmed with this manificent intricate gold trim.

    There materialized a kinda/sort FOOTSTOOL with Victorian type of legs made out of some sort of precious wood - perhaps mahogony.

    Next, St. Michael the Archangel came into view holding and dragging a wingless Satan, man-handling (or perhaps angel-handling him is a better term to us) him. Satan had his hands/arms/wrists tied behind him as if shackled like some sort of prisoner or criminal.

    St. Michael FORCED Satan’s head onto the top of this footstool.

    THEN, the Blessed Virgin Mary manifested herself in her Most Regal Divine Nature and proceeded upon this regal royal red gold trimmed carpet.

    She approached the footstool with Satan’s head being held down upon it by St. Michael the Angel.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary the simply and gently lifted up one of her feet and ever so slowly simply let her foot come into contact with Satan’s head.

    And THEN…where was this GOSH-AWFUL CRUSHING NOISE echoing throughout the Vaults of God’s Heaven.

    That’s it.

    And NO! I don’t smoke DOPE nor do I get myself DRUNK.

  44. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 2:14 pm

    Just came back from spending a 1/2 hour in quite reflection and contemplation from the table at my hermitage. While allowing my mind’s eye and heart to simply ‘glide along’ in the peace, stillness and quiet, this Thought came across my mind to dwell upon and consider.

    It make me laugh, chuckle and inwardly glow with a sense of peace. Wanted to share it with all of you with the desire that it causes a most pleasant and blessed spirit to rise within you all.

    Br. Nathanael gets somewheres around 860,000 visitors/readers to RZN a month.

    Here in northeast New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from ‘The Big Apple’ aka New York City, there is this major league BASEBALL team owned by one MR. STEINBRENNER.
    That baseball team is the New York Yankees.

    When the Yankees play here in NYC, the usually fill up their stadium. I dunno, what does it hold? 50,000 or 55,000 people?

    Anyways, Br. Nathanael Kapner’s RZN gets a monthly audience that would fill TO CAPACITY the New York Yankee’s stadium 12 to 13 times over.

    Br. Nathanael Kapner gives Mr. Steinbrenner ONE HECK OF A LOT OF ‘COMPETITION’!

    - Fr. Joseph

  45. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 2:22 pm

    So to CONTINUE in sharing that Thought of mine with all of you visitors/readers of RZN…

    So now ‘imagine’ the Blessed Trinity - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit so INCREDIBLY ANGRY with our contemporary World of 2009 A.D. that GOD says something like the following

    ‘Let US go down to Earth, and let US meter out OUR Divine Justice upon the entire Human Race. These PEOPLE with their human organ trafficking, money laundering, brothels, pronography, abortions, nuclear weapons, their Zionism, their incessant LYING to the peoples of the world via their Global Mass Media outlets DESERVE to be wiped off the face of OUR planet earth!’

    And the Father, Son and Holy Spirit gather up these Divine Wrecking Implements such as a Slegehammer, Jackhammer and Crowbar.

    As the Father, Son and Holy Spirit walk through Their Divine Home’s Kitchen, towards the Front Door, in order to come VISIT our planet earth in order to impose some sort of Divine ‘Wrecking’ Chastisement upon us all, the Father just so happens to glance over to His Divine Living Room and catches a Divine Glimpse of a HUMAN BASEBALL GAME being shown on His Divine T.V. set (but of course, that T.V. set has the Absolutely Best ‘Digital Picture Quality’ imaginable)…

    - Fr. Joseph

  46. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 2:30 pm

    The FATHER sez to the Son and Holy Spirit something like

    ‘Hold on a moment. I want to SEE this…’

    And there, on His Divine T.V. screen is Br. Kapner making an INCREDIBLE LEAP over the Centerfield’s wall, catching a long ball blasted out of the infield by some Talmudic Rabbi - thus STEALING him from his team’s Home Run!

    Scene changes to Man of Peace on the RZN ‘Mound’ getting his signals from the RZN catcher, Joe Cortino. Man of Peace winds up and delivers.

    SWING AND A MISS! STRIKE TWO!

    And God the Father’s Divine Attention is taken off His Anger and His Divine Plans to levy some Divine ‘Wrecking’ Chastisement on our contemporary gone-to-the-devil and on-the-highway-to-hell World of 2009 Anno Domini.

    The Father sits down on His Divine Living Room’s Easy Chair. The Son and the Holy Spirit take their seats on Their Easy Chairs as well.

    Some angels come by and bring the Father, Son and Holy Spirit some very ‘cold’ and ‘refreshing’ Divine BEER.

    They ‘pop’ the lids and all take for Themselves a most REFRESHING Spiritual Gulp as the ’sides are retired’ and the RZN Team comes up TO BAT.

    And the WATCHING CROWDS in the Stadium’s bleachers are either BOOING or CHEERING…

    - Fr. Joseph

    So now to take all of you yet DEEPER and PAST the thought-images of using human images and human actions and behaviors to consider a SUPERNATURAL Fact and/or Truth.

    Br. Kapners’s RZN website along with ALL OF OUR efforts and real life EFFORTS at trying TO WIN this ‘Spiritual World Series GLOBAL Baseball Game’ for our ‘Home Town/City’ of HEAVEN might actually be winning ALL OF US some more of ‘time’ and some more of His Own DIVINE MERCY on us all.

    To Fr. Joseph,

    Have you ever experienced sleep paralysis? or a hypnogogic hallucination? as they are termed by “empirical” science.

    I have seen a watery figure before of a man with a beard, it was very strange and I was in my late teens when seeing this. It was the face and shoulders of one that looked like it was illustrated in water.

    This I saw on two occasions and it coincided with the time I awoke to the surrounding madness and was overwhelmed by much emotion. It was like the transition from childhood thinking one was free and knowing that one is not truly free while many others continue to suffer.

    The harder I began to look at this watery man the further away it disappeared towards my window.

    Since then I have felt darker things, these hypnogogic hallucinations are not so benevolent. I once heard a terrible dark laugh that seemed to come from behind my head and progressed to the front. It was a HUGE dark laugh that seemed to reverb like it was in a cathedral. The room I was in was small.

    Do you know anything about these experiences? I’ve met others that are perceptive that have felt the same thing before.

    This was many years ago now, and have not happened since, but I remain perplexed to what it was.

  49. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 3:37 pm

    Dear Man of Peace,

    Yes, I’ve had such experiences, but not associated with the induced hallucinations brought on by sleep paralysis.

    Nevertheless, such peronally experienced encounters with ‘unseen’ sorts of things that bear on our personal thoughts and harbored-in-our-hearts throughout our own lives DO happen.

    Fr. Benedict Groschell has a series of religious and spiritual instructional DVDs. Get yourself the one entitled ‘Religious Experiences’.

    Now then, with regards to uncategorizeable or unexpected/not-understood experiences of a mystical or purely ’spiritual’ nature, the advice given by one Mystical Doctor of the Catholic Church - St. John of the Cross - is simply BEST to ‘distrust’ them and STAY WITH all of that which has already been REVEALED by His Church.

    Any really and truly AUTHENTIC religious experience what one really and truly obtains from the Supernatural Realms of God Himself will be “indelibly BURNED” into one’s own spiritual faculty of MEMORY - and if that experience doesn’t fade, doesn’t become altered BUT which assists one along in the spiritual pursuit of and service to GOD HIMSELF, then one can ‘cautiously’ proceed so as long as one finds one has an abiding sense of PEACE as well as a gift of Eased Personal CONFIDENCE that one is pursuing the Will of God.

    - Fr. Joseph

  50. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 3:42 pm

    Dear Man of Peace,

    One other thing regarding such mystical spiritual experiences, St. John of the Cross also clearly advises that one must NOT nor EVER desire chasing after these sorts of experiences.

    Our “natural” realm of living life consists in cherishing and abiding IN and WITH these created incarnate spiritual natures of ours.

    Being a ‘Human Being’ who has to use one’s physical senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch coupled with the abiding use of our RATIONAL and REASONING minds is in it’s very self THE WILL OF GOD OUR CREATOR for all of us.

    If God wanted us to ’soar around in the unseen realms’ witnessing and hearing and experiencing all sorts of ‘other worldly stuff’ - He would have created us ELEMENTAL spirits - that is, spirits WITHOUT a physical body.

    - Fr. Joseph

  51. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 3:47 pm

    Dear Man Of Peace,

    Nevertheless, in order to provide you with some sort of ‘reference point’ in your own experiences WITH your created human nature AS an incarnate spirit, let me tell you about one of my more memorable mystical experiences.

    Now, first of all, mystical experiences DO NOT - repeat DO NOT AT ALL - denote or convey any sort of degree of “Holiness” in the Sight of God. And IF we should be truly graced to have an authenic Divinely Instigated Supernatural Mystical-Spiritual Experience of something of the Unseen Spiritual Realms - we ought to IMMEDIATELY adopt an inner disposition and attitude that one is in NO WAY ‘WORTHY’ or ‘DESERVING’ of such a Divine Gift - and that we are NOT ‘more better’ than anyone else on the surface of our planet earth.

    Dear Man Of Peace,

    So about 11 or 12 years ago, I left my PC at sitting on its desk in a most miserable, crushed-in-spirit heart and mindset.

    I went to my living room’s couch and laid down, holding onto a copy of a letter of WOE I just e-mailed to a personally trusted friend and confidant.

    As I re-read that letter to myself…I kid you not…I actually heard a very DEEP and very MASCULINE Voice beging reading that letter to me SIMULTANEOUSLY right along WITH me and my own inner mental vocalizations!

    I paused…shook my head…bethinking to myself ‘WHAT ON EARTH WAS I HEARING? THIS VOICE???’

    I lowered the letter from the vicinity right in front of my face - and I looked out into the room…and ya wanna know what I actually SAW with these two real life human EYEBALLS with their pupils and retinas and whatever other stuff goes into making a set of human eyeballs?

    - Fr. Joseph

  53. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 4:01 pm

    Dear Man Of Peace,

    I kid you not - and I can’t LIE about it…

    There right in full view of my two EYEBALLS about 8 feet away were these pillars or columns one might see in some Greek temple holding up the roof in those National Geographic type of photo-spreads on Athens or somewheres from Greece.

    These pillar were seperated by…oh…about 6 feet…and across and upon these pillars was what seemed to be a translucent veil of a kinda/sorta very fine mess. It was white and looked kinda/sorta like some sort of see-through silk or nylon.

    And just BEHIND and IN THE CENTER of this veil between these pillars was a Radiant Center.

    And as I tried to FOCUS ON and LOOK THROUGH this veil onto and into this Radiant Center, I could make out that this apparently Radiant Center was actually A FACE!

    And this FACE, I could discern, was actually MOVING - that is, the contours and sculpted features of this FACE were, in fact, ‘ALIVE’!

    I had to pull myself OUT and BACK from the mesmerizing state I was slipping helplessly INTO - and as I did, I closed my eyes.

    Upon opening my eyes, the Vision was gone, and I tried with all of my might to GET UP OFF the couch.

    And it was HILAROUS! I could NOT stand up straight. I was so ‘DRUNK IN SPIRIT’ and my inner self was just circling and circling and circling within itself.

    I was made DRUNK by Divine Love.

    That was GREAT. And God is GOOD. And by gosh, EVERYONE ON PLANET EARTH should wind up in His Divine Presence now and forever more. Amen.

    - Fr. Joseph

  54. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 4:23 pm

    Dear Man Of Peace,

    Gosh, you ‘got me on a roll’ - gotta tell you more stuff.

    Now I have a natural ‘fear of height’. I look outside of a second story window and look DOWN, and I get this overwhelming sense of ‘the willies’ throughout my being.

    So I have this very natural desire to ‘keep my TWO FEET on the ground’ or as close to the ground as possible.

    Makes me wonder how those Navajo native American Indian construction workers on the upper most floors of the being build skyscrapers of New York City do it - walk to and fro across those dangling in mid air I-beams without a care in the world.

    Oh well, God gives His gifts to people as He chooses.

    - Fr. Joseph

  55. Fr. Joseph July 29, 2009 @ 4:32 pm

    Dear Man Of War,

    So I sat here a couple of minutes at my hermitage, bethinking to myself what sort of spiritual guidance, advise and instruction I can give you as one of His PRIESTS in His Church.

    That’s a big and TALL order - trying to give GOOD ADVISE to someone else when their own spiritual natures, welfare and wellbeing are concerned.

    So THIS is the ‘Advise’ that came to me FOR you.

    Ya simply need to get the VERY BEST POSSIBLE Spiritual Guidance, Wisdom and Instruction from a much more COMPETENT Spiritual Director. I’ll try to help as best as I can though.

    Now the one person who ya really WANT TO get impeccable spiritual advise, wisdom and instruction is the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY herself.

    Now if I or you were confronted by the spiritual might of an ARCHANGEL in a ‘face to face’ encounter, I’m sure both you and I would “tremble and shake”.

    Now the Blessed Virgin Mary had the mighty ARCHANGEL GABRIEL appear to her and converse with here ‘face-to-face’.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary, in her GREAT SPIRITUAL STRENGHT due to her being filled with the Divine Grace of God the Holy Spirit actually ‘CHALLENGED’ the mighty Archangel Gabriel by using her own human spiritual faculties of REASON with the Archangel.

    “HOW CAN THIS BE since I have no relations with a man?”

    Anyways, the point I want to make is this: get yourself an icon/statue of the Blessed Virgin - get it blessed by a Priest. Get a Rosary. Get yourself enrolled in the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

    Pray the Rosary before her image and simply ASK HER, like a child-son might as one’s Mother - to give you her Protection as well as INSTRUCTION in these and any other spiritual matters.

    In the name of the Father +, Son +, and Holy Spirit +,

    It needs to be noted that private revelations of modern times, especially among ‘Marion Catholics’, differ radically from those of earlier ages. It also needs to be noted that the fathers of the ancient Church, as the Orthodox fathers do now, warned tirelessly against visions and private revelations. With a few exceptions, SUCH VISIONS WERE CONSIDERED DELUSIONS OF THE DEVIL TO TRICK EVEN THE ELECT.

    It might also be noted that exceptions such as those of St. Adamnan of ancient Ireland and Macarius of Egypt, there was never any “papal approval,” or “approval” from a bishop of any kind. They became part of the deposit of faith because many devout came to accept these visions as true over time. There was no formal “approval” of such things, another major difference between the ancients and modern Romanist practice.

    Such warnings have been heedlessly disregarded by modern, alienated Roman Catholics looking for external proofs for their faith. Here is a popular citation from the Life of St. Antony:

    Some brothers came to find Abba Anthony to tell him about the visions they were having, and to find out from him if they were true or if they came from the demons. They had a donkey which died on the way.

    When they reached the place where the old man was, he said to them before they could ask him anything, “How was it that the little donkey died on the way here?” They said, “How do you know about that, Father?” And he told them, “the demons showed me what happened.”

    So they said, “That was what we came to question you about, for fear we were being deceived, for we have visions which often turn out to be true.” Thus the old man convinced them, by the example of the donkey, that their visions came from the demons.

    **In the normal course of things, the ancients were convinced that the Scriptures, Tradition and the writings of the Fathers were sufficient for all faithful, and therefore, due to the strong possibility that visions are from the evil one, that such things as private visions are to be a priori rejected and both dangerous and unnecessary.**

    It might be noted in the famous passage quoted above, St. Antony makes mention of the fact that the mere notion of a vision being “true” in no manner excludes the question of demonic influence. The lives of the Desert Fathers are saturated with stories of visions brought to holy men from demons.

    In all cases there are a few similarities: first, it is the manifest ascetic life of the man in question that permits him to see the deceit of the evil one; second, demons always clothe themselves in the most pious manner possible (especially to those in the monastic life), making it impossible to tell truth from falsehood. Only the holiness of the father in question makes this possible.

    Therefore, visions granted to children, who are inexperienced in the ascetic life, can never be trusted, if even the most pious visions given to holy men are to be rejected a priori.

    Note. The American, Fr. Seraphim Rose (1934-1982), was an Orthodox monk in the ancient tradition who dedicated his life to reawakening modern Western man to forgotten spiritual truths. From his remote cabin in the mountains of northern California, he produced writings which have been circulated throughout the world in millions of copies.

    The full article is about the Charismatic movement itself and not a condemnation of people. These image-driven times require patience and sober-mindedness.

    Charismatic Revival
    As a Sign of the Times
    by Fr. Seraphim Rose

    Excerpt: To make this quite clear, in what follows we shall give the teaching of the Orthodox Church on *spiritual deception* chiefly as found in the 19th-century summation of this teaching made by Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov, himself an Orthodox Father of modern times, in volume one of his collected works.

    There are two basic forms of *prelest* or spiritual deception. The first and more spectacular form occurs when a person strives for a high spiritual state or spiritual visions without having been purified of passions and relying on his own judgment. To such a one the devil grants great “visions.”

    There are many such examples in the Lives of Saints, one of the primary textbooks of Orthodox ascetical teaching. Thus St. Nicetas, Bishop of Novgorod (Jan. 31), entered on the solitary life unprepared and against the counsel of his abbot, and soon he heard a voice praying with him.

    Then “the Lord” spoke to him and sent an “angel” to pray in his place and to instruct him to read books instead of praying, and to teach those who came to him. This he did, always seeing the “angel” near him praying, and the people were astonished at his spiritual wisdom and the “gifts of the Holy Spirit” which he seemed to possess, including “prophecies” which were always fulfilled.

    The deceit was uncovered only when the fathers of the monastery found out about his aversion for the New Testament (although the Old Testament, which he had never read, he could quote by heart), and by their prayers he was brought to repentance, his “miracles” ceased, and later he attained to genuine sanctity.

    Again, St. Isaac of the Kiev Caves (Feb. 14) saw a great light and “Christ” appeared to him with “angels”; when Isaac, without making the sign of the Cross, bowed down before “Christ,” the demons gained power over him and, after dancing wildly with him, left him all but dead. He also later attained genuine sanctity.

    There are many similar cases when “Christ” and “angels” appeared to ascetics and granted astonishing powers and “gifts of the Holy Spirit,” which often led the deluded ascetic finally to insanity or suicide.

    But there is another more common, less spectacular form of spiritual deception, which offers to its victims not great visions but just exalted “religious feelings.” This occurs, as Bishop Ignatius has written, “when the heart desires and strives for the enjoyment of holy and divine feelings while it is still completely unfit for them.

    “Everyone who does not have a contrite spirit, who recognizes any kind of merit or worth in himself, who does not hold unwaveringly the teaching of the Orthodox Church but on some tradition or other has thought out his own arbitrary judgment or has followed a non-Orthodox teaching - is in this state of deception.”

    The Roman Catholic Church has whole spiritual manuals written by people in this state; such is Thomas a Kempis’ Imitation of Christ. Bishop Ignatius says of it: “There reigns in this book and breathes from its pages the unction of the evil spirit, flattering the reader, intoxicating him…

    “The book conducts the reader directly to communion with God, without previous purification by repentance… From it carnal people enter into rapture from a delight and intoxication attained without difficulty, without self-renunciation, without repentance, without crucifixion of the flesh with its passions and desires (Gal. 5:24), with flattery of their fallen state.”

    And the result, as I.M. Kontzevitch, the great transmitter of patristic teaching, has written, is that “the ascetic, striving to kindle in his heart love for God while neglecting repentance, exerts himself to attain a feeling of delight, of ecstasy, and as a result he attains precisely the opposite: ‘he enters into communion with satan and becomes infected with hatred for the Holy Spirit’ (Bishop Ignatius).”

    And this is the actual state in which the followers of the “charismatic revival,” (Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox) even without suspecting it, find themselves. This may be seen most clearly by examining their experiences and views, point by point, against the teaching of the Orthodox Fathers as set forth by Bishop Ignatius.”

    Dear Fr Joseph,

    I believe your experiences, you must of been in a very tranquil state of consciousness.

    Visions like this come from good vibrations.

    Good is one letter short of God.

    I acknowledge what you say and keep on steady ground.

    In the name of the Father +, Son +, and Holy Spirit +,
    Fr. Seraphim Rose -

    http://www.sfaturiortodoxe.ro/orthodox/orthodox_advices_seraphim_rose_charismatic_revival.htm

    The question we shall attempt to answer in these pages is: what or who is this spirit? As Orthodox Christians we know that it is not only God Who works miracles; the devil has his own “miracles,” and in fact he can and does imitate virtually every genuine miracle of God. We shall therefore attempt in these pages to be careful to “try the spirits, whether they are of God” (1 John 4:1).

    We shall begin with a brief historical background, since no one can deny that the “charismatic revival” has come to the Orthodox world from the Protestant and Catholic denominations, which in turn received it from the Pentecostal sects.
    But what precisely is this “spirit”?

    Significantly, this question is seldom if ever even raised by followers of the “charismatic revival”; their own “baptismal” experience is so powerful and has been preceded by such an effective psychological preparation in the form of concentrated prayer and expectation that there is never any doubt in their minds but that they have received the Holy Spirit and that the phenomena they have experienced and seen are exactly those described in the Acts of the Apostles.

    Attitude Toward
    “Spiritual” Experiences

    HAVING LITTLE OR NO FOUNDATION in the genuine sources of Christian spiritual experience - the Holy Mysteries of the Church, and the spiritual teaching handed down by the Holy Fathers from Christ and His Apostles-the followers of the “charismatic” movement have no means of distinguishing the grace of God from its counterfeit. All “charismatic” writers show, to a lesser or greater degree, a lack of caution and discrimination toward the experiences they have.

    Some Catholic Pentecostals, to be sure, “exorcise satan” before asking for “Baptism in the Spirit”; but the efficacy of this act, as will soon be evident from their own testimony, is similar to that of the Jews in the Acts (19:15), to whose “exorcism” the evil spirit replied: “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”

    St. John Cassian, the great 5th-century Orthodox father of the West, who wrote with great discernment on the working of the Holy Spirit in his Conference on “Divine Gifts,” notes that “sometimes the demons [work miracles] in order to lift into pride the man who believes himself to possess the miraculous gift, and so prepare him for a more miraculous fall.

    They pretend that they are being burnt up and driven out from the bodies where they were dwelling through the holiness of people whom truly they know to be unholy… In the Gospel we read: There shall arise false Christs and false prophets” [12].

    Fr. Seraphim Rose -

    http://www.sfaturiortodoxe.ro/orthodox/orthodox_advices_seraphim_rose_charismatic_revival.htm

    The 18th-century Swedish “visionary,” Emanuel Swedenborg - who was a strange forerunner of today’s occult and “spiritual” revival- had extensive experience with spiritual beings, whom he frequently saw and communicated with.

    He distinguished two kinds of spirits, the “good” and the “evil”; his experience has been recently confirmed by the findings of a clinical psychologist in his work with “hallucinating” patients in a state mental hospital in Ukiah, California.

    This psychologist took seriously the voices heard by his patients and undertook a series of “dialogues” with them (through the intermediary of the patients themselves). He concluded, like Swedenborg, that there are two very different kinds of “beings” who have entered into contact with the patients: the “higher” and the “lower.”

    In his own words: “Lower-order voices are similar to drunken bums at a bar who like to tease and torment just for the fun of it. They suggest lewd acts and then scold the patient for considering them. They find a weak point of conscience and work on it interminably…The vocabulary and range of ideas of the lower order is limited, but they have a persistent will to destroy…They work on every weakness and belief, claim awesome powers, lie, make promises, and then undermine the patient’s will… All of the lower order are irreligious or anti-religious… To one person they appeared as conventional devils and referred to themselves as demons.”

    “In direct contrast stand the rarer higher-order hallucinations… This contrast may be illustrated by the experience of one man. He had heard the lower order arguing for a long while about how they would murder him. But he also had a light come to him at night, like the sun. He knew it was a different order because the light respected his freedom and would withdraw if it frightened him…

    When the man was encouraged to approach his friendly sun he entered a world of powerful numinous experiences… [Once] a very powerful and impressive Christ-like figure appeared… Some patients experience both the higher and lower orders at various times and feel caught between a private heaven and hell.

    Many only know the attacks of the lower order. The higher order claims power over the lower order and, indeed, shows it at times, but not enough to give peace of mind to most patients… The higher order appeared strangely gifted, sensitive, wise, and religious” [13].

    Any reader of the Orthodox Lives of Saints and other spiritual literature knows that all of these spirits ‹both “good” and “evil,” the “lower” with the “higher” - are equally demons, and that the discernment between true good spirits (angels) and these evil spirits CANNOT be made on the basis of one¹s own feelings or impressions.

    The widespread practice of “exorcism” in “charismatic” circles offers no guarantee whatever that evil spirits are actually being driven out; exorcisms are also very common (and seemingly successful) among primitive shamans,14 who also recognize that there are different kinds of spirits - which are all, however, equally demons, whether they seem to flee when exorcised or come when invoked to give shamanistic powers.

    No one will deny that the “charismatic” movement on the whole is firmly oriented against contemporary occultism and satanism. But the more subtle of the evil spirits appear as “angels of light” (2 Cor. 11:14), and a great gift of discernment, together with a deep distrust of all one¹s extraordinary “spiritual” experiences, is required if a person is not to be deceived.
    In the face of the subtle, invisible enemies who wage unseen warfare against the human race, the naively trusting attitude towards their experiences of most people involved in the “charismatic” movement is an open invitation to spiritual deception.

    One pastor, for example, counsels meditation on Scriptural passages and then writing down any thought “triggered” by the reading: “This is the Holy Spirit’s personal message to you” (Christenson, p. 139).

    But any serious student of Christian spirituality knows that, for example, at the beginning of the monastic life some of the unclean demons instruct [novices] in the interpretation of the Divine Scriptures…gradually deceiving them that they may lead them into heresy and blasphemy” (The Ladder of St. John, Step 26: 152).

    …It is a very rare Orthodox Christian who is capable of distinguishing very subtle forms of spiritual deception (where “pride,” for example, may take the form of “humility”) solely on the basis of his feeling about them without reference to the patristic tradition; only one who has already fully assimilated the patristic tradition into his own thought and practice and has attained great sanctity can presume to do this.

    How is the Orthodox Christian prepared to withstand deception? He has the whole body of God-inspired patristic writings which, together with Holy Scripture, present the judgment of Christ’s Church for 1900 years with regard to virtually every conceivable spiritual and pseudo-spiritual experience.

    Later we shall see that this tradition has a very definite judgment precisely on the chief question the “charismatic” movement raises: concerning the possibility of a new and widespread “outpouring of the Holy Spirit” in the last days.

    But even before consulting the Fathers on specific questions, the Orthodox Christian is protected against deception by the very knowledge that such deception not only exists, but is everywhere, including within himself.

    Bishop Ignatius writes: “We are all in deception. The knowledge of this is the greatest preventative against deception. It is the greatest deception to acknowledge oneself to be free of deception.”

    He quotes St. Gregory the Sinaite, who warns us: “It is not a little labor to attain the truth precisely and to make oneself pure of everything that opposes grace; because it is usual for the devil to show his deception, especially to beginners, in the form of truth, giving a spiritual appearance to what is evil.”

    And “God is not angry at him who, fearing deception, watches over himself with extreme caution, even if he should not accept something which is sent from God… On the contrary, God praises such a one for his good sense.”

    to KathJuliane

    Regarding spiritual experiences.

    It is through the goodness of ones’ actions that reflect certain experiences.

    The past track that keep one going forward, the roots.

    Deception and demons cannot exist when there is a continuity in the actions of men and women.

    Truth is a tree deeply rooted in the ground.

    And who is one to say who experiences what and why? Or diminish it as mere trickery, Some experiences are from God, some signs are from God. Its not held for an elite few but all.

    If we are all a reflection of God.. who has a monopoly on individual experiences.

    I’ve read the Biographies by Malcolm X and Carl Jung and God was there.

    No one has a monopoly on God.

    It’s eternal, and doesn’t mean existed 2000 years ago and just then. If the Almighty were in many others from the days of Christ would you see it?

    If Christ appeared before us would the same disbelief in he’s time happen again?

    You know what would happen he’d be told he has a Messiah complex and end up in an asylum.

    Thanks Hoff.

    Now the Jews are used and useable by Satan, the devil or whatever because they reject Christ.

    This massive (ie by the masses) rejection of Christ makes them easy tools for Satan, without their even knowing it; in other words they are simply “following the leader(ship)”, which is codified, and of which they are aware to different degrees, in their Talmudic religion.

    The control at the top is without doubt fully aware that their leader is Satan and work freely in cooperation with him, as Man of Peace has rightly pointed out, in the opening lines of a recent post.

    They affect this control on the rest of Jewry, in the same way they effect control over the rest of non-jewry - through black magic.

    Not the fun stuff that it is made out to be - but real hard core black magic.

    This wasn’t invented 100 or so years ago by Hertzl, with his new term Zionism. The Luciferian Jews have been active for 2000 years…..at least. We do not have to go back further than that, to get the picture.

    (It is the age of technology that has allowed Satan - just as he did in ages past - Atlantis, the Flood; two distinct periods, to rise to the opportunity, through his always ready slaves)

    Several years ago the USA fell, almost overnight to this spell, to the occult.

    I felt it, in the spirit; a spirit of knowledge and understanding, from the Holy Ghost, and I lamented it.

    And thus your days are numbered on one hand.

    The more I say, the less, so I will simply finish off with the words of the Apocalypse - “Come out of her my people, so that you partake not in her crimes and her punishments.” (paraphrased)

    In other words, divorce yourself completely by whatever God provides by way of means, from the strong delusion which currently resides in the USA.

    Put your faith in Christ.

    Pray and read His word, beginning with the Ten Commandments.

    And you shall never, ever be overcome.

    “He who is for captivity, into captivity he will go”.(Apocalpse; re. these times.) Be strong, do what you can, resist, stand on God’s word and wait for His deliverance.

    To Charlie

    I agree with what you say, Christ is certainly a way for the people On-mass. Brother Nathanael pointed out that these people are organized and that is basis of their strength.

    Christ is a uniting force amongst us all for us all, no exclusivity.

    today on Iamthewitness.com DBS and he’s friend are talking about the satanic side of this Talmudic religion, its there on audio dated 29 of July.

    If you see the EU parliament building in Strasbourg the design is akin to the towers of Babel.

    @ http://vigilantcitizen.com/?p=142

    The uniting of the European countries is in Revelations depicted as a seven-headed beast, this was even in the The Omen with Gregory Peck quoting.

    I watched an interview with this Rahm Emmanuel and he has some dark vibes about him, truly dark. Reminds me of a twisted Michael Corleone from the Godfather after he had turned over to the dark-side.

    The church is scattered. I myself do not belong to any ‘church’ although I have a spiritual fellowship with a cetain group.

    We are involved with ‘trench warfare’ and we cannot always see and unite with our fellow soldiers, so to speak but if Jesus is truly our Lord and His Holy Spirit is in us and motivates us then this is the unity, for it is the same spirit.

    In the Apocalypse Christ is the person on the White horse,

    ‘Who goes foreward conquering and to conquer’

    So, we must look at the Apocalypse as a divine Judgement and chastisement for our sins.

    We are not merely victims here, but participants in a maelstrom somewhat of our own making,
    which God will use to purify the earth.

    Charlie,

    I agree. This is the problem the church itself is not without its ills, but these ills are ignorant of Christ’s teachings and way of life.

    He was not a soldier by sword but by truth, love and compassion.

    People give Christianity a bad name because it has throughout time progressed by the sword.

    Craziness like armies of God. War is peace Etc.

    the foundations were distorted to suit the people in power at the time. Like King James for example, much of the Bible throughout England was his authorized version, and in some verses there is acceptance of slavery, like if you are a slave here on earth accept your master because heaven will be so much better for you after.

    Many say it is the book of God, but it must be understood that it has gone through many translations.

    Some have said that Francis Bacon was Shakespeare and an illegitimate son of queen Elizabeth, It may have been Bacon that translated the Bible into the king James version that was mostly used from the late renaissance period. Bacon was a freemason.

    There are Contradictions in the Bible, too, so many disregard the whole Book. To me through time the picture became blurry.. the church is you and me, its all around us, the church does not exist without the people that go. So in reality the church is immaterial not a building but the awakened conscious of christ in all our hearts and minds, in action and consideration.

    After the ills that Christianity has bared do you think Christ himself would be a Christian? To see his message mis-used for power?

    Much wealth goes through the Vatican and it is a place opulent with gold, but Christ was not of this nature, humble and meek yet powerful with the Almighty. All knowing of enemies, guided by insight, deep wisdom that only a clear conscience brings. A tornado against darkness.

    I can understand people not trusting religion because it has had its history, but this is not a reflection of Christ.

    One example of a mistranslation in the Bible is the word ‘world’, It comes from an ancient Greek term meaning Aeon, a long period of time.

    So, End of the world, can be otherwise known as End of an Aeon.

  68. The Prodigal Son July 30, 2009 @ 1:28 am

    To a Man of Peace,

    Sounds to me like you’ve been reading the wrong Bible…

    Most ‘Bibles’ (in Europe and the West, and wherever the Vatican has spread it’s errors) including the King James - are largely based on the Pharisaic Masoretic Hebrew texts.

    Texts which the ‘rabbis’ have CLEARLY altered since Christ’s time… mostly to hide from their own the fact that Jesus WAS their Messiah… the Son of Jesse, from the Davidic line - of the tribe of Judah.

    The Old Testament - ESPECIALLY - in these Masoretic texts has been thoroughly Judaized… and no longer matches the Bible which Christ carried.

    When the Pope sent him to Palestine, instead of going to the Orthodox Churches in Jerusalem and elsewhere… The unwitting (?) Jerome went to the Rabbis !

    Thus, the Latin Vulgate has been altered in certain ways, in many places, including the omission of books which are included in the Orthodox Septuagint.

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    Just check out this one verse, here first in the King James version of the Old Testament - from II Kings chapter 16 :

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    5 “Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Ramaliah king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to war : and they besieged Ahaz, but could not overcome him.

    6 At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered Elath to Syria, and drave the Jews from Elath : and the Syrians came to Elath, and dwelt there unto this day.”

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    Now, I’ll present you with the same verse from the un-altered Septuagint, which Christ Himself and His Apostles carried and quoted from… [In the Greek LXX, II Kings is instead titled IV Kingdoms] :

    5 “Then Rezin King of Syria and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, came up to Jerusalem to make war. They began to besiege Ahaz, but they could not sustain the war.

    6 At that time, Rezin king of Syria returned Elath to Syria and drove the men of Judah from Elath. Then the Edomites went to Elath, where they continue to dwell to this day.”

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    Now, I don’t know how well versed you are in these (’Jewish’) things, but this verse is one of the most important verses that I have found so far, in my comparison of the two ‘versions’, and is VERY TELLING !

    I bet I got Skip Baker’s ears perked right up !

    Do you know who the Edomites are, Man of Peace ?

    Suffice to say that there have been numerous and serious changes made from the Septuagint (of which the oldest complete copy - excluding fragments - dates to approx. 300 AD), to the later Massoretic texts (dating from approx. 1000 AD)…

    These changes are undeniable - and explain the whole ‘King James only’ NONSENSE… Now I get it !

    Once everyone catches on to this (IF they can be reached), truth should spread quickly !

    P.S…

    In the Septuagint ‘world’ as you mentioned is tranlated as ‘age’…

    So - instead of ‘End of the world’… it’s ‘End of the age’ …

    The problem with conversions is that there are many that are not really sincere, crypto Jews, and the like..

    Conversion by force is temporary, without the heart behind it - it doesn’t last..

    Regarding revelations and Fatima..

    I do believe that God, the Blessed Mother and Jesus do reveal themselves to people and even children, some of whom are highly intuitive and perceptive. God, Mary and Jesus can use anyone they want for a revelation.

    Now look, I didn’t mean to send anyone into a “tizzy” about sharing a personal spiritual encounter with God here.

    Now look, everyone simply MUST face ‘The Facts Of Life’. There IS a God Who Is Creator of all that is seen and UNSEEN.

    My gosh, that’s PART OF THE CHURCH’S OWN CREED!

    We human beings ARE incarnate SPIRITS. We use our BODY’S physical senses to move, live and have our being WITHIN God’s seen ‘All’.

    And because we ARE created in the Image and Likeness of God Himself Who Is Pure and Infinite and Almighty Spirit - like it or not - we have the latent potentials already ‘created INTO us’ to experience, encounter and personally witness things of a Supernatural nature.

    When ALL OF US DIE - and yes, all of us WILL die, that is to say, experience OUR OWN personal mortal deaths - ALL OF US will have a mystical-spiritual experience our VERY OWN.

    Our DISincarnated spirits WILL behold all manner of thing is God’s UNSEEN Creation.

    Now if you DON’T want to believe that there IS an UNSEEN Side to God’s Creation - then you are DENYING the Nicene Creed, the Apostle’s Creed and the Athansian Creed.

    Now let us ALL take Sacred Scripture into account - as it is St. John of the Cross, Carmelite Saint and Mystical Doctor of the Catholic Church - right along with St. Theresa of Avila who is likewise a WOMAN Doctor of the Church - who say

    “In taking Sacred Scripture as our GUIDE, we DO NOT err, for the Holy Spirit speaks to us in Sacred Scripture.”

    Now just LOOK and READ what is recorded IN Sacred Scripture by the DIRECT INSPIRATION of God the Holy Spirit!

    ABRAHAM has his encounters with God.

    MOSES has his mystical-spiritual encounters with God.

    Every last on of THE PROPHETS tell of their own encounters with the LIVING God.

    The Gospels have the Holy Spirit telling us all of JESUS’ OWN Supernatural Mystical Experiences of His Baptism and THE DESCENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT upon Him.

    God the Holy Spirit has St. Luke getting the ‘Divine Facts’ from the MOTEHR OF GOD herself about the details of her CONCEIVING BY THE POWER of God the Holy Spirit.

    St. Peter tells everyone about HIS visions and encounters with God in the Acts of the Apostles.

    St. Paul relays HIS encounters with God.

    St. John relays HIS encounters with God.

    God is THE SAME yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever.

    There ARE Supernatural Realities and there ARE natural realities as well as preternatural realities.

    Just like there are SUNNY days, and RAINY days, and COLD days, and HOT days, and WINDY days and STORMY days here on planet earth - we ALL accept that these are REAL because of the physical bodily senses God Himself has created us INCARNATE spirits with.

    And the SOONER we all accept there are UNSEEN SPIRITUAL REALITIES that we WILL encounter in a very personal and direct way, then people will begin to have the FEAR OF HELL and ETERNAL DAMNATION properly held before the own personal inner spiritual SIGHT!

    And then - MAYBE - we can begin to see some sort of IMPROVEMENT in the behaviours, actions and personal agendas people all over our contemporary world current have!

    What is THE PURPOSE for the Sacrament of CHRISMATION in the ORTHODOX CHURCH is there is NO EXPECTANT FAITH or EXPECTATION that that individual or that congregation WILL OBTAIN the Divine Spiritual Gifts of KNOWLEDGE, of UNDERSTANDING, of WISDOM, of COURAGE-FORTITUDE, of PIETY, of REVERENCE, of LOVING AWE and FEAR of God Himself?

    I’m sorry to inform EVERYONE on planet earth.

    YOUR God has ‘INVADED’ this planet Himself, in His Own BODY, nearly 2,000 years ago.

    And YOUR God continues to ‘INVADE’ the Human Race with His Own Divine and Most Gloriously Loving and Powerful HOLY SPIRIT.

    Now if you DON’T WANT GOD ‘TO INVADE’ our planet earth - either in the PAST, in the PRESENT, or in the FUTURE - let’s face the facts - you DON’T want Christ Jesus’ SECOND COMING either!

    “MARANTHA, LORD!”

    The SOONER, the BETTER.

    And THEN, you can praise all the members, Hierarchy and Laity, for NOT FAILING to order the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA to the Immaculately Loving Heart of THE MOTHER OF GOD - the WOMAN of Genesis 3:15 and Revelation 12:17 who IS APPOINTED BY GOD HIMSELF TO BE THE ONE TO CRUSH THE DEVIL’S HEAD.

    But then again, you DON’T WANT TO SAY ANYTHING AT ALL about the Orthodox Church’s Hiearchy and her theologians and her Clergy and Laity in REFUSING TO ACCEPT the Mother of God as Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal 1917 A.D. Apparition’s Messages and Instruction.

    THE PETRIFICATION OF CHRIST IN THE MIDDLEEAST:

  79. KathJuliane July 30, 2009 @ 11:50 am

    Washington - Facing the growing influence of Christian Zionists in the United States, the dwindling Christian minority in the Palestinian territories is making a renewed push to capture American hearts and minds. (2007)

    http://www.forward.com/articles/11993/

    …“We are forging relations with Christian groups in the United States that support us,” said Yousef Nasser, mayor of the Palestinian Christian town of Birzeit, at a Capitol Hill briefing. “The fringe Christians scare me,” he added, referring to evangelical pro-Israel Christians.
    […]
    Palestinian Christians have been struggling against the powerful Christian Zionist coalition led by evangelical churches and their pro-Israel lobbying arm, Christians United for Israel.

    While CUFI easily attracts thousands of supporters to mega-events around the country, the Palestinian Christians are still struggling to get out their message. At last week’s briefing on the Hill, organizers asked for a show of hands to count how many congressional offices sent staffers to the event. Not one hand went up.

    CUFI’s main goal has been to support Israel, but recently it, too, has taken note of the Palestinian Christian population. Following the murder last month of Rami Ayyad, a Christian bookstore owner in Gaza, CUFI’s executive director, David Brog, wrote, “As CUFI stands with Israel, we cannot and will not be silent about the persecution of Christians by the same militants who have been at the forefront of the effort to destroy Israel.”

    This has not won over the Palestinian Christians. At the briefing last week, Nasser took a strong line on the Christian Zionists in America.

    “If any policy will be influenced by these people, you’re in trouble.” Nasser warned listeners at a Capitol Hill briefing. “Wake up. These people [CUFI & apostate Christian Zionists] are crazy.”

    Among the groups leading the call for Christian organizations to support the Palestinian cause is the Sabeel Center, a network of international organizations that draws support from key activists in liberal Christian denominations. During Sabeel’s conference at Boston’s Old South Church, the keynote speaker was Desmond Tutu, the South African Anglican Bishop.

    The issue being discussed by Sabeel and other activists is the P.A.’s remaining Christians, who once made up almost 20% of the Palestinian population but have now shrunk to less than 2% due to steady emigration out of the area.

    The reasons for the Christian exodus from the West Bank and Gaza are in dispute. Palestinian activists claim that hardship caused by the Israeli occupation has made life unbearable and has led the generally more affluent and educated Christians to seek a better future elsewhere.

    Bethlehem’s mayor, Victor Hanna Jubrail Batarseh, said that the recent rise to power of Hamas, the Islamic movement, has not been a danger to the Christian minority, though he did say that “at the end, we want to see a secular Palestinian state.”

    Many Israeli advocates argue that Muslim Palestinians violently harass the Christian minority, causing the Christian exodus.

    Justus Reid Weiner, a lawyer who is a member of the hawkish Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs think tank, equates Palestinian Christians with battered women who decline to recognize the problem.

    “It’s classical denial,” he said in a phone interview from Jerusalem. “It is so obvious who is telling the truth and who is being squeezed.”

    The message that the mayors carried was one of Palestinian unity, denying any tension between Christians and Muslims despite recent flare-ups of violence in the West Bank and Gaza.

    “We as Christians and Muslims live under the same culture,” Nasser said. “The only way to differentiate us is to follow us on Friday or Sunday and see where we go to pray.”

    On the True Church and the False: A Letter on Ezekiel 13
    Matthew Raphael Johnson

    As modern societies continue their long disintegration, reverting to inhuman savagery in the name of “progress and science,” the question of telling the true Church [people of God; household of the Lord; true Israel; Body of Christ] from the false one becomes more and more paramount. Nearly every day new sects pretending to be “Christian” arise, all claim to be “from de Bahiiiible” and have the truth of the Christian life “finally revealed.”

    Such nonsense is usually transparent, but in today world, the lack of serious education and moral grounding, conditioned by the television and other media, the average citizen is utterly confused and bewildered with respect to the sheer number of sects in American life.

    Many hapless Amurrricans either give up, become secular or contemptuous of “Christianity” (and who can blame them), while others simply become ecumenists out of desperation, saying that the sectarian nature of these groups “still worship the same ‘god,’” and hence doctrinal or sectarian differences mean little.

    Ecumenism holds that God has not given humanity a test to tell the true Church from the false, and hence all are false, and all are true and it really does not matter. The truth of the matter is slightly more rational than this, and more specifically, the prophet Ezekiel, unread, as all the prophet are, has given a specific test for telling the true prophet from the false. In our terms, the true “preacher” from the phony.

    Ezekiel 13 is the specific chapter dealing with this test, a test made very necessary since the true prophets were always in the minority and the false, in the majority.

  81. KathJuliane July 30, 2009 @ 12:49 pm

    On the True Church and the False: A Letter on Ezekiel 13
    Matthew Raphael Johnson

    1. The first test is whether or not the prophet/preacher places his “own thought” first, or the church’s. (verse 2). The question here is not merely individualism and relativism, which are evil enough, but the understanding that one creates one’s own theology not arbitrarily, but through what is considered “mainstream” or “extreme” at any given time.

    In other words, one believes what one believes because it is a majority faith, or at least fits into the majority faith. Hence, those who “change with the times” and place their own interests first are false.

    2. The second test is “building a wall” around the church (verse 3). God commands all his prophets and ministers to do this, to protect the church from all outsiders. This is the first command given by God in this chapter. Now apart from the nature of the true church, this is an open condemnation of ecumenism, and is ignored in the mainstream for precisely that reason.

    Hence, those who do not build walls around the faith, that seek “interfaith gatherings” for the sake of respectability or the rejection of the value of truth, are openly condemned here.

    The specific context is to “build a wall that will withstand attack” from without. In other words, it is a faith that is armed against its enemies, and recognizes outsiders as enemies is the true one. As will be seen below, the idea that the true faith is always warred upon is central to the vision of God in this chapter.

    More importantly, this wall must be able to “withstand the day of attack” (verse 6). Hence, the true faith can only be that which never changes, that preaches the same thing century after century, always to an audience mostly deaf.

    Those who come to the truth do so to their own detriment, knowing full well that the truth might set them free, but will enslave them in purely earthly terms. Their life, in other words, is over for coming to the truth. They will save their lives by losing them.

    God speaks of this wall as something weak and flimsy, but “whitewashed” (verse 10). The arbitrary and self-interested theologies of the mainstream are false, but are covered over with a thin veneer of academic defenses and economic power.

    The wall cannot stand serious scrutiny, but is whitewashed with the primary purpose of making it seem other than it is. God says that no only will He Himself destroy that wall, but will “destroy the white-washers” as well (verse 14).

    3. God explicitly says (verse 7) that the false churches will see visions. But these visions are false. Hence, miracles and prophesy is not a [an infallible] sign of truth, but can equally be a sign of falsehood. Those who see these false visions and call them “true” will be “assaulted” by the Lord.

    4. The central claim of the chapter is that the prophets who speak of peace and well-being are the truly false, the lowest of the low (verse 10).

    In other words, the true faith is ever at war, never at please, and will always be attacked by enemies. Not only is this another attack on ecumenism, but holds that the “feel good” preachers are already condemned and are a sure sign of falsity.

    Many preachers in all religions preach “good news” for money and respectability, and hence, Ezekiel 13 already eliminated most of the mainline churches from truth at this one swoop.

    The context of this passage is that Ezekiel is being commissioned to tell the Jews that they are evil, against God and have sinned grievously to their father, of which the penalty is death. Ezekiel realizes he may be killed for this, but must preach anyway. This is the central element: the true church does not preach “good news” but bad, condemns sin always and is always under attack.

    Preaching the truth means death, it means exile, it means a complete lack of social respectability. Hence, again, most of the mainline churches are out.

    For those who preach “warmth and goodness,” God says “In my fury I will let loose storm winds; and because of my anger there shall flooding rain, and hailstones shall fall with destructive wrath.” (Verse 13). No fewer than three times does God condemn those prophets who speak “their own thoughts” in the space of a short chapter.

    5. Those who practice magic are condemned. This is more than the pagan practices of times past and present. This is an attack on all those who accept the technocracy of modern times, itself an explicit form of magic, or the control of the natural world for gain.

    In fact, God explicitly condemns technology in a mass scale by saying “Woe to those who sew bands for everyone’s wrists and make veils for every size of head so to entrap their owners. . .” (Verse 18).

    These practicing were proto-technological in the sense that they were considered “magical amulets” that might protect the wearer from harm. But certainly this passage is not merely talking about a specific pagan practice, but rather is a general condemnation of the belief that “civilization” and “technics” can save someone and protect them from harm.

  82. KathJuliane July 30, 2009 @ 1:07 pm

    On the True Church and the False: A Letter on Ezekiel 13
    Matthew Raphael Johnson

    In other words, the notion that modern civilization is good, but the bad needs to be eliminated is not sufficient, one must reject the modern world and its promises of a technical utopia and plenty for all. God says, “See! I am coming at those bands of yours in which you entrap mens lives: I will tear them from their arms and set free those who you have caught” (verse 20).

    The fact that God refers to these magical practices as “bands” (in the sense of chains) he is speaking about a web of relationships that is animated by Baal, or the spirit of trade and ownership, the spirit of money that motivated the rulers of Tyre and Phenicia more generally against the worship of God.

    Tyre is the archetypal “New York” or “Amsterdam” of the Old Testament, a wealthy trading city controlled by a pagan oligopoly of apostates from the True Church. Pagan rites both justified, ritualized and extended their power, and such power was conceived as the power over nature, to force her to “yield her fruit,” for a price.

    Hence several things are dealt with here in telling the true church from the false ones. First, the true church is always battened down for attack. She is “paranoid” in the vulgar media-language of the masses, and “sets up walls” between herself and the apostates and heretics. These walls must be of truth, and not of opinion.

    Second, the true church views herself as true [of unchanging antiquity and real life of Faith experienced within sacred Apostolic Tradition preserved by the Holy Spirit passed on from generation to generation] , and not merely “another denomination.” Hence she is intolerant [of false ecumenism and its religious relativism and compromise with the materialism of the world] to the point of fanaticism.

    Third, she is not impressed by visions and miracles, though those have a place. It is often the case that visions confirm the heretics in their error more than confirm the faithful in the truth, a truth that needs no visions.

    Fourth, the true church preaches the end of all things, the vanity fo the world and its power relationships. It preaches the bad news that the people do not want to hear, but that remains true.

    Hence, the true church is attacked and vilified for refusing to conform to the dictates of established power. Hence, there will be no positive media treatment, rumors will fly about the true church and many will be prosecuted or worse. Yet, a strange and inexplicable joy will dominate the countenance of every one who lives within the truth.

    Fifth, it refuses to accept the promises of the Enlightenment, technocracy and modern ideologies of any kind. It will not accept the world, not even seek to reform it, but will condemn it and attempt to live its own life [and patristic consciousness] as much as it is able.

    One won’t see “big name” professors or writers speaking about the truth, there will be no CNN appearances or major media interviews. They will be ignored and spat upon. They will be accused of every crime and held in utter contempt. They will be seen as fanatics and lunatics, and every device for their destruction will be considered by the Tyrian elite and their hangers on.

    Hey Br. Kapner: how are you today?

    You ought to add the following news-story to this write-up of the Jewish criminal network in organ trafficking:

    – “Israeli doctors indicted for human egg trafficking” (July 23, 2009)

    WASHINGTON (JTA) — Romania indicted nearly two dozen Bucharest-based Israeli fertility doctors in a human egg trafficking scandal.

    The 22 doctors were caught in a raid on a Bucharest fertility clinic that was alleged to have been operating without required permits, Ha’aretz reported Thursday.

    The head of the Romanian Medical Association on Tuesday likened the illicit clinic activities to Nazi practices.

    Professor Vasili Esterestua told Romanian TV that the clinic “carried out medical experiments similar to those the Nazis did in Auschwitz,” and the doctors exhibited “severe ethical deficiency.”

    Under Romanian law, legal egg donation requires that the donor is not compensated and egg extraction is performed in an authorized clinic.

    Hi Fr. Joseph, and all,

    You say:

    …”1) NOT ordering the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA to the Immaculately Loving Heart of THE MOTHER OF GOD - the WOMAN of Genesis 3:15 and Revelation 12:17 who IS APPOINTED BY GOD HIMSELF TO BE THE ONE TO CRUSH THE DEVIL’S HEAD, and then..”…

    Russia is not in need of a consecration from a heretical Church and more to the point, a Pope that has refused in his many successors to correct the doctrinal errors and evil practices it continues to do today. Moreover, Russia does not need a consecration from a Pope that refuses to as for FORGIVENESS for the many crimes that his church has committed over the years and continues to do so today.

    In order for the Pope to consecrate any one entity, first a humble approach and acceptance of sins must be attained. First he and his church must be in good standing with God and then they may consecrate Russia or the whole World if that’s what seems the right thing to do…

    In other words, the Roman church needs to first put it self in a position to be able to (re)consecrate IT SELF, and only then will it be able to consecrate any one else. To do it the other way around as you suggest, is not only an out of order practice but IT WILL NOT WORK.

    So yes, I am all up for it, Russia will be the woman to crush the devil’s head, and yes perhaps it needs some kind of consecration or blessing to do this, but don’t fool your self and others, this must be done by an entity that has the right credentials and the right standing with God.

    Speaking of right standing with God, the Orthodox Church, has known about Russia’s role and appointment, long before the Fatima apparitions. Many of Russia’s own saints, and other Orthodox saints, have prophecized what is to come, and what Russia’s role is in all of this.

    And speaking of consecrations, what better consecration is there, than the baptism of millions of Russians today, after the horrible times of Zionist-inspired and led communism? And what better consecration is there for this powerful nation if it is not its dedicated and methodical cleansing from most evil institutions such as Jewish banking, gambling, corrupt and evil political correctness in schools, etc. etc.?

    And finally, what better consecration is there, by the mass comeback of Holy Orthodoxy in Russia which means a mass participation without precedence in the Mysteries of Holy Communion and Confession?

    And look at it’s leaders, they are pious Church goers, and participate with their families, in the richness and Holy Right Faith of Orthodoxy! In today’s world, there is nothing like it, do you really think that a consecration by an erring and failing (in the matters of faith) church like the Roman church will add anything to the Glorious partaking of Christ our Lord himself as a whole nation?

    And finally, what more valid consecration does Russia need, when it is STILL producing Martyrs for Christ, it is being “consecrated” by the blood of them, even today! Just read about Evgeniy Rodionov the Soldier Martyr for an example of this here:
    @ http://modern-war.suite101.com/article.cfm/evgeniy_rodionov_soldier_martyr

    What makes you think that consecration of Russia by the Roman church, needs to come before the Roman church IT SELF becomes (re)consecrated? Look at this with honesty and in truth, you will see that the former will NOT COME without the latter taking place first. And what makes you think that the Roman church has something so unique and good to offer to Russia, at it’s current Worldly and Error inflicted state?

    And to conclude, NO, your points 1) 2) 3) … which you propose as the things that the Roman church needs to do, are definitely NOT what needs to be done first. If I remember correctly, and if the Fatima apparition is a true one, there are some more instructions given that people should follow before this consecration takes place, right?

    And the consecration of Russia is the THIRD SECRET not the first. The first and second if you look at it correctly, involve a period of long and honest REPENTANCE of the whole body of the Roman church, and ONLY then can anything else follow.

    And have you ever wondered WHY it seems to be unable to take on the decision to perform any kind of honest and valid consecration such as the one you propose?

    I’ll tell you why I think this is, it’s because, even if there may possibly be many honest catholics in its body, they are still part of a flawed and erring institution, namely the Roman church. Therefore, I think it will NOT BE ALLOWED for it to perform such a thing. And even if it did, before it cleaned up it’s slate, whatever it may do would NOT be valid anyway.

    Thus, again, you see my point, it’s like they say in the instructions on how to use the Oxygen mask in an aeroplane:

    “Do not try to put the mask on your loved ones first! FIRST PUT IT ON YOUR SELF and then help others!”

    In other words, yeah ok, perhaps Russia may need some kind of consecration or blessing in time, to send her on her way to fighting the Antichrist, but make no mistake, do not think that you can “sort someone else out” before you “sort your self out” first!

    I’ll try to put some of the in context to Orthodoxy prophecies together about Russia soon, but rest assured, we are and were aware if her purpose long before the west even suspected, and we are also aware, that it IS ALREADY RECEIVING AND HAS ALREADY RECEIVED a whole lot of blessings, without the “help” of a doctrinal errors, priorities errors and attitude errors infested Roman church.

    Russia’s Saints, and Orthodoxy’s Saints, the Angels, the Mother of God and Jesus Christ himself have been with her for a log time, and now it is beginning to flower, and her full glory has not shown yet!

    If the Roman church still wants to take on the task of sending her on her way to victory, it needs to hasten, clean up its act first and then they are welcome to do it!

    Fr. Joseph, and All following this thread in all of the posts in this site, please see things as they are. The Roman “Catholic” church needs to sort out it’s various errors, before it can take any meaningful spiritual interest in the rest of humanity.

    To Prodigal Son,

    Yes correct, age and aeon are synonymous with one another.

    It is based on the precession of the stars, The bible is full of astrology too, believe it or not.

    Christ has a synchronicity with the new aeon of Pisces (the fish).

    The next age is Aquarius. Every star sign in our zodiac has a 2000 nyear cycle with the sun as well as from month to month.

    Astrology has been demonized but it is ridiculous as it is a part of Gods creation.

    The worse thing one can do though is deify the stars and sun, that is paganism.

    Christ was the ethics of the heavens brought to earth.

    Harmony. Its all Music MANN.

    Stav,

    Well said man ! It is so good to see that a Greek feels the same as I do - even though we are so far away !

    At the end of your post, there was something that made me want to throw in my 2 cents worth… when you put the word ‘Catholic’ in quotation marks…

    This is the key to this whole dialogue, I think: The Roman church calls themselves ‘Catholic’… but they are NOT in fact - Catholic !

    They have usurped the word ‘catholic’, and they have not been truly Catholic… that is - at one with the rest of the Church - since 1054 !

    So the key point here is this : the Romish ‘church’ needs to return itself to TRUE Catholic unison with the Orthodox faith from whence she came ! Only then can Rome and all the Orthodoxy have togetherness in Christ’s truth and proper worship.

    ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

    To a Man of Peace,

    Astronomy - yes… Astrology - No… There is a BIG difference between the two, my (new age ?) friend !

    The stars do not influence our lives, say - the way that horoscopes and such say that they do…

    However, the celestial bodies can convey signs from God… Such as the star of Bethlehem… If you enjoy the wonderment of the sky, then you will probably like this !

    http://www.bethlehemstar.net/

    The website sells DVDs which go into great detail and provide graphic representations of what the Magi (wise men) saw in the skies that brought them to Bethlehem…

    But the website goes into a good amount of detail in an easy to read text format… I think you’ll be impressed !

    Their data also lines up perfectly with the prophecies of Daniel that the Messiah (the Annointed One) would be cut off in 33 AD, as well as with historical accounts from that time from non-Christian sources.

    Enjoy !

    More than half of children taking the swine flu drug Tamiflu experience side-effects such as nausea and nightmares, research suggests.

    Times Online
    July 31

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/health/Swine_flu/article6734056.ece

    An estimated 150,000 people with flu symptoms were prescribed the drug through a new hotline and website last week, according to figures revealed yesterday.

    **Studies of children attending three schools in London and one in the South West showed that 51-53 per cent had one or more side-effects from the medication, which is offered to everyone in England with swine flu symptoms.**

    The research by the Health Protection Agency emerged as Sir Liam Donaldson, the Chief Medical Officer for England, said that swine flu infections “may have reached a plateau”.

    … Releasing the latest figures, Sir Liam said that an estimated 110,000 new cases of the H1N1 virus were diagnosed by doctors in the week to Sunday. That did not include those using the new National Pandemic Flu Service for England to obtain antiviral drugs without seeing their GP.

    Sir Liam said that the deaths of 27 people in England were confirmed to have been linked to swine flu, compared with 26 last week. As of Wednesday morning 793 people were in hospital in England with the virus, and 81 were in intensive care. [”linked” usually means death from some kind of secondary medical complication or infection, like bacterial/viral pneumonia, and not the flu virus itself. 793 hospitalizations out of about 150,000 with flu symptoms is not that high a rate.]

    …Peter Holden, the British Medical Association’s lead expert on swine flu, suggested that Tamiflu was being overused and did not need to be offered to everyone with mild symptoms. “The National Pandemic Flu Service has been a great success, and was needed to take the pressure off GPs,” he said. “But the threshold for getting Tamiflu should be quite high.

    “For patients who are not in the high-risk groups — such as pregnant women, people with bad asthma or with suppressed immune systems — this virus typically causes mild symptoms and does not require a course of Tamiflu. Patients in the at-risk groups should be referred to their GP, who will use their clinical judgment.”

    **A total of 103 children took part in the London study, of which 85 were given the drug as a precaution after a classmate received a diagnosis of swine flu. Of those, 45 experienced one or more side-effects.

    The most common was nausea (29 per cent), followed by stomach pain or cramps (20 per cent) and problems sleeping (12 per cent).

    Almost one in five had a “neuropsychiatric side-effect”, such as inability to think clearly, nightmares and “behaving strangely”, according to the research, published in Eurosurveillance, a journal of disease.**

    [KathJ muses: Which is worse? The flu or the “medicine”?]

    Fr Joseph:

    Pope Benedict XVI has called all priests to Rome next year to end the Year for Priests.
    What better opportunity could there EVER be to call for a full consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Queen of Heaven, as part of the ceremonies.

    http://www.zenit.org/article-26593?l=english

    Quote: Stav-

    “And speaking of consecrations, what better consecration is there, than the baptism of millions of Russians today, after the horrible times of Zionist-inspired and led communism? And what better consecration is there for this powerful nation if it is not its dedicated and methodical cleansing from most evil institutions such as Jewish banking, gambling, corrupt and evil political correctness in schools, etc. etc.?

    There you have it!

    The very words to put into a submission to the Roman Catholic Hierarchical apparatus surrrounding the Pope.

    If you ask God to bless it, rest assured, the Pope will receive it!

    Regards,

  93. Stav August 1, 2009 @ 9:02 am

    Dear Charlie and All,

    You are right, but something tells me that the Pope and his close assistants have heard and thought of all of this many times before. Every man has a conscience you know…

    An addition to what I posted above:

    Remember the Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector? (Luke 18:9-14)

    When some prays to God and at the same time is convinced of their own righteousness, they will NOT be Justified.

    Whatever good may be said about the Pope and the Roman church, even if it is a fact, the Pope as the person standing for the Roman church must humble himself and his church, in order to gain the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Only then can he transfer it to others…

    Also, as I said before, what makes the Roman church think that, in their current state, they can offer something (even as a mediator for the grace of God) to Russia when it has received so many blessings already and is still in the process of receiving even more?

    It absolutely clear to me, that the consecration of Russia is taking place already and has been going on for some time now, despite the Roman church… Talk about the blind trying to lead the sighted…

    Stav

  94. charlie August 1, 2009 @ 6:14 pm

    Here is the text (first draft) I intend to send (with modifications) to the Pontiff regarding this consecration.

    Feel free to offer suggestions for its improvement.

    It is with joy that I receive the news that you intend closing the Year for Priests with a conference in Rome for all priests focussing on reflection, faithfulness, repentance and renewal.

    This touches my heart very deeply, and afflicts me at the same time.

    It is in this atmosphere, charged with the zeal of the early Apostles, which I make it my prayer it will be, that considering the sufferings of the Church in Eastern Europe over the main part of the C20th and the need for the baptism of millions of Russians and East Europeans today, the need to come back on Mass to the Holy Orthodoxy in Russia and the other Eastern European states, which has ever been the Christian faith there, which means a mass participation without precedence in the mysteries of Holy Communion and Confession.

    And for the cleansing of institutions left over from that time of revolutionary aetheism - that you would also avail of the occasion to make a formal consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, naming her, Russia, and all of Eastern Europe without shame, and fear of reprisal.

    Our brothers and sisters in Christ deserve to avail themselves of such good will and prayers as we may offer, for the terror and destruction they have suffered this past century.

    Nothing, if not resplendant glory, for Russia and the other Eastern European countries can come from it, as well as our own purification and justification before God.

    I leave you dear Pontiff with the words of Christ:

    I was hungry and you fed me
    Naked and you clothed me
    Abandoned and you gave me shelter
    Sick and you ministered to me
    In prison and you visited me

    When did I do all these things Lord?

    Amen I say to you [para] you did it with the Consecration of Russia and all of Eastern Europe to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, their Mother, and yours also as I requested her to ask of Lucia, the visionary of Fatima, and I myself asked also,repeatedly through her from 1929 onward.

    “Well done good and faithful servant!”

    Yours in Christ
    (Charlie)

    Amen.

  95. Fr. Joseph August 2, 2009 @ 6:54 am

    Dear Charlie,

    That’s a VERY NICE and heart warming letter of petition to the Pope to order the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of Russia to the Immaculately Loving Heart of Christ Jesus’ Own Mother.

    If there is an influx from Russians and those of Eastern European descent submitting that sort of petition to the Pope via e-mail rather than the hostile condemnations and in-bred hatreds for the man who is the Bishop of Rome, the Pope cannot be but moved to placing compassion and God’s Holy Will and His Divine Mercy over all of the hatreds residing within and throughout Mankind which are now PREVENTING the entire World to see for themselves what God the Holy Spirit Himself can do in renewing the face of our earth.

    Russians and those of Eastern European heritage need to HUMBLY admit for themselves that they are NOT ‘exempt’ from the warnings given to Mankind by the Most Holy Theotokos as Our Lady of Akita, Japan back on October 13, 1973:

    “…if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on ALL humanity (that includes RUSSIANS as well as all EASTERN ORTHODOX Christians). It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. FIRE WILL FALL FROM THE SKY AND WILL WIPE OUT A GREAT PART OF HUMANITY, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither (Catholic OR Orthodox) piests nor (Catholic OR Orthodox) faithful.”
    - from
    http://www.theworkofgod.org/aparitns/Akita.htm

    Deep down inside, after examining himself very, VERY closely - I don’t think STAV wants Priests and Faithful of the EASTERN ORTHODOX CHURCH to get wiped out by God Himself.

    God the Father’s Divine ANGER is on account of the INGRATITUDE of mankind towards their REJECTION of His Eternal Son Jesus - and what HE did and endured to gain for us members of the entire Human Race our eternal Salvation, Redemption and the Father’s Own Divine Gift of the Divine Nature.

    This corruption in my home State of NEW JERSEY

    http://www.nj.com/corruption

    EXISTS throughout Russia, the Balkan countries, throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas.

    People bethink to themselves that God the Father is a ‘dodding Old Man in Heaven’ Who doesn’t SEE for Himself what goes in our World and deep down inside the minds, hearts, souls and spirits of 6 billion human souls currently living their God-given lives here on this planet earth of HIS Creating!

    And His Divine Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Christ, HIMSELF says that not even a sparrow falling to the ground ESCAPES His Divine Father’s Notice!

    Just look at how 6 BILLION PEOPLE are living here on HIS planet earth - whether they are RUSSIANS or EASTERN EUROPEANS, ORTHODOX or not!

    And God the Father sees ALL OF IT and He sees ALL OF IT all of the time!

    God the Father has every Divine ‘Right’ to be ANGRY with the whole lot of us ungrateful, indifferent members of the Human Race!

    And, to tell you the truth, I’m “scared”.

    Aren’t any of you?

    I think it’s time to share another ‘religious’ experience - this time NOT one of my own but of someone else I personally knew about 20 years ago.

    But first, if we MEN do not make the personal free will choice and take the personal lived action to do whatever we must in order to perserve our own humanity and masculinity while hoping and praying that God grants us His Divine Help via His Divine Graces to SUCCEED at that personal desire of our own - then we MEN simply dissolve into being nothing more that brute beasts filled with hostility, violence and malice to one another.

    And not only that, we MEN simply dissolve into being nothing more but brute beasts to wonmen and their children.

    We MEN will wind up leveling every manner of violence against OTHER men, but we will also level every manner of violence against WOMEN and their children.

    And the exact same happens to WOMEN who refuse to protect and preserve their femininity and their humanity as well.

    So I want to entirely avoid any sort of religious experience from a man’s point-of-view and tell all of you of the Divine Graces conferred upon people by the Mother of God herself.

    Twenty years ago, I was a single parent raising my young teenage sons. I don’t have any daughters.

    One of my sons brought home a young teenage girl, I’ll call her ‘Shannon’, he met while at high school in order to introduce her to me.

    Shannon was astonishly and refreshingly gregarious, gentle yet full of wonder of life and living. She was exceptionally feminine in heart, mind and spirit at her young teenage years.

    Shannon was if Irish stock and told me about herself. She was living down the street with her natural father and her STEP-MOTHER. Shannon informed me that her natural mother had DIED about 6 years earlier when she was but 8 years old - and that she was by her natural mother’s side while on her dead-bed when she died.

    My son piped up, telling me that he had told Shannon that I was a Catholic catechism teacher for young teens and young adults preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation - and that I might be able TO HELP HER with something of a ‘religious’ nature.

    Shannon then told me that prior to her natural mother’s death, her mother gave the then 8 year old Shannon a crumpled down small brown paper lunch bag containing things that her mother wanted for Shannon to have.

    Shannon then said that her mother, while on her death bed, told Shannon that she should keep this small brown bag with things inside to when she was older - and that Shannon would need them later on in her life.

    Shannon asked me if I could EXPLAIN what those things were in that small crumpled up brown paper lunch bag.

    I told Shannon, ‘Sure! Why not? If I can help.’

    Shannon then immediately darted out of the front door of our home and ran down the street to get that small crumpled brown paper lunch bag….

    - Fr. Joseph

  99. Fr. Joseph August 2, 2009 @ 8:52 am

    Sitting at our large rectangular kitchen table with my sons, Shannon came racing back into our home through the front door and immediately took up a seat in front of me at the opposite side of our kitchen table.

    Shannon then placed a small crumpled up brown paper lunch bag in front of me telling me THIS was the paper bag that her natural mother had given to her on her death bed as a ‘parting gift’ to Shannon.

    Shannon had kept this same bag in that same condition all of these years!

    I then asked Shannon if she would show me what was inside.

    Shannon then lovingly opened up this crumpled up small brown paper lunch bag and gently poured out its contents onto the middle of the table.

    What came OUT of her mother’s death-bed gift to her when she was but 8 years old were

    A Rosary. A Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. A Green Scapular. A Miraculous Medal of the Blessed Virgin Mary. A 10 bead prayer ring for the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Some other religious medals as well.

    As I looked on in AWE at what Shannon had just placed IN TRUST before me so as to EXPLAIN TO HER what these religious articles were, what they stood for and what they meant…

    …I could sense the spirit of Shanon’s NATURAL MOTHER behind and with her as well as the abiding brillance and presence of the Blessed Virgin Mary just behind me on MY side of the table.

    And sensing both her mother’s spiritual presense as well as the Blessed Virgin Mary’s presense right BEHIND me - right there in my own kitchen! - I had this overwhelming sense of and burden of spiritual RESPONSIBILITY being entrusted to me by her mother and the Mother of God!

    As Shannon just glowingly kept on with her conversing with my sons and I with this real and abiding sense of experiencing the actual spiritual presence of Shannon’s mother and the Blessed Virgin Mary, with a certain sense of both awe and necessity to be as CAREFUL and COMPLETE in telling Shannon what all of these blessed religious articles WERE and what they MEANT - I began to gingerly UNTANGLE these intermingled religious articles as began explaining what each one was to Shannon.

    - Fr. Joseph

  100. Fr. Joseph August 2, 2009 @ 9:05 am

    After telling Shannon all about these blessed religious articles her deceased natural mother had given to her on her death bed, I felt as if I wanted TO ADD TO her religious article relic-treasure given to her by her mother.

    I gave Shannon a copy of a framed icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa
    http://michaelguth.com/myblog/pictures/our_lady_of_czestochowa.jpg

    and a couple of candles, telling her to make a small place on her dresser to place the icon and candles to either side - and to simply PRAY to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to TALK TO HER in private just like and AS IF she were her natural Mother.

    Several days later, Shannon came CHARGING into our home via the front door - and she was SQUEALING! She had TEARS coming out of the eyes of her fair-Irish complexion face which had now turned BEET RED. She held her hand over her mouth in an attempt to contain her teenage girl SQUEALS! And she ran around excitedly and virtually uncontrollably in small tight circles.

    As I and my sons came to the aid of an obviously distraught Shannon, I asked her over and over ‘What is the matter?’

    Shannon could NOT bring herself to answer. But her EYES looking straight into MINE clearly conveyed to me that she was ‘begging’ for some sort of HELP!

    Recogning that communicative ‘look’ in her eyes, I barked out to my son to call 9-1-1 and get an AMBULANCE and medical assistances to our home A.S.A.P., fearing for Shannon’s physical, emotional and mental health.

    Shannon only THEN was able to speak, saying ‘No, No! Don’t do that. It’s NOT necessary. I’ll be okay. I’m really okay!’

    Shannon then settled down, caught her breath, and began to relay to me what had just happened at her home in her VERY OWN bedroom…

    - Fr. Joseph

  101. Fr. Joseph August 2, 2009 @ 9:16 am

    Shannon then told me she has just come home from school that afternoon and was entirely alone in her home. Her natural father and her step-mother were at work or out shopping.

    Shannon said that she went into her very own private bedroom and began to converse WITH the image of the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa - just like I told her to do - talking to the image of that Icon just like she was taking like a DAUGHTER to her NATURAL MOTHER.

    Shannon then told me she simply turned around from her conversing with the image of that Icon and she IMMEDIATELY ALMOST BUMPED INTO A WOMAN who was right behind her.

    She was SHOCKED by this woman’s unexpectedly being IN her own home while Shannon perfectly knew that NO ONE was at home!

    In a PANIC, she ran out of her home, down the street, and came to me and my sons for help and assitance!

    I don’t know what inspired me to do it, but I got a box of icons and images I had store in my house and began to pull out OTHER images and icons to show to Shannon.

    When I pulled out THIS particular image,

    http://www.lasvegasmariancenter.com/images/OL_Medj.jpg

    Shannon let out a GASP, her face returned to its natural IRISH complexion color, and with Irish eyes of both suprize, awe and loving DELIGHT, she glowingly told me and my sons over and over again..

    ‘That was HER! That was HER! That was HER!’

    The Mother of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, God’s New Eve to and for ALL of the members of Mankind - HASN’T FORGOTTEN ANY OF US!

    Not even Shannon!

    One more religious experience story to share with all of you WOMEN readers here on RZN told to me by OTHER women regarding the Divine Love JESUS CHRIST and HIS MOTHER have for you, your children and your families.

    25 years ago, back in March 1984, I made my religious profession into the Lay Order of Carmelites. When I did, I was given a ‘Ceremonial Brown Scapular’ consisting of two 6 inch by 6 inch cloth panels connected together by lenghts of cloth ribon with one panel embroidered with the letters IHS and the other with BVM.

    The IHS stands for Jesus Christ. The BVM stands for the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    I made the on-line computer acquaintance with this very lovely woman in the pre-Internet days on what was called ‘Prodigy’.

    This very religious and spiritual LAY woman told me about her friend, a woman and a mother, who had a daughter about 12 years old dying of luekemia in the hospital.

    I asked for and obtained this dying daughter’s mother’s mailing address from my on-line woman friend.

    I was moved to compose a letter FOR and TO this dying young girl telling her that due to her courage in dealing with the trials of her luekemia and her desire to be with and live with her mother and family INSTEAD of being in the hospital, that I was making her an ‘Honorary Carmelite’.

    In that letter, I told her to KEEP ON FIGHTING for her health and for her life SO THAT she might remain in and with her family.

    That so as long as she “kept of fighting” to live and “didn’t give up”, she was very much like a sole individual walking through the barren desert plains surrounded by mountains. And so as long as she KEPT ON MOVING, all of those high up in the mountains she could NOT see would be able to keep their eyes on HER and send help to her where she was on the desert plains below.

    I took that letter and mailed it to her mother along with my own personal Ceremonial Brown Scapular and enclosed a note to her mother that with HER PERMISSION to give both my letter and Scapular to her dying daughter.

    About 3 weeks went by and I made on-line contact once again with my woman friend.

    I asked her about her friend, the mother and her dying daughter.

    My on-line woman friend then told me the following. Her friend had receive my letter and did give my Lay Carmelite Ceremonial Brown Scapular to wear while in the hospital - the IHS and the BVM being a kinda sorta constant ‘Bear Hug’ by Jesus and His Mother all the while during her stay in the hospital.

    Her friend was called by the hospital staff and doctors, informing her and the family that her daughter had taken a turn for the worse - and to come down to the hospital immediately.

    The dying daughter’s mother and the rest of the family rushed down to be by the bedside of this dying young girl.

    I was told that the dying young girl had gone into a coma and was losing her grip on life - and the mother and the rest of her family around her hospital bed.

    Then, all of a sudden, the young dying girl sat up in her bed with an amazing dose and display of physical-bodily strenght.

    She then opened her eyes wide staring up towards the ceiling.

    She then lifted both of her arms into the air with hands, palms and fingers stretching up to the ceiling of the room, and she began to say out loud

    ‘Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!’

    And then she collapsed back into the bed having died.

    Dear Fr. Joseph and All,

    You say:

    …”from the warnings given to Mankind by the Most Holy Theotokos as Our Lady of Akita, Japan back on October 13, 1973:”…

    …”Deep down inside, after examining himself very, VERY closely - I don’t think STAV wants Priests and Faithful of the EASTERN ORTHODOX CHURCH to get wiped out by God Himself.”

    Yes I agree, but the truth is, the unjust will be purged or forced and advised into correction (no matter what denomination they belong to) and a new Orthodox Christian renewal will come.

    However, what makes you think that we Orthodox need the “assistance” from the Roman church in order for people to get back on the straight and narrow and be advised of their next action to take?

    As I said before, we have our own Orthodox, VERY RICH, body of tradition, prophecies, advise and sources in general, which have given us pretty much all we need, and all the important messages have been delivered, in many cases long before the Roman church even suspected and I might add, with more detail.

    I still don’t understand what makes you think that the Roman church havs something special to offer to the Orthodox? And the point still stands, the Roman church needs some heavy duty cleansing, before it can effectively help with the coming changes…

    And do not think that by saying this I imply that every single Orthodox individual is perfect, far from it, all humans fight with our sins everyday and makes mistakes as individuals. The matter here is Right and perfect Glorification of God in Orthodoxy as an institution versus the Docrtinally deviant Papic Roman church also as an institution.

    So, since the consecrations you are talking about need to be executed in the context of an institution (in your case and from what you say, the Roman church), then it follows undoubtedly that this institution needs to be in good standing order before it can commence in any such activity.

    As I said, one of these days I’ll put something together to support all of what I say here regarding the Orthodox knowledge of all of this. Also I did not have the time to read the rest of your posts carefully, I will however probably read them tomorrow as they seem very interesting.

    I just have to get the next stuff off my chest though:

    It still amazes me, even though very predictable, how the Roman church Christians such as your self, regardless of all otherwise good intent, are still meticulously avoiding to even mention or even shortly respond to anything about the doctrinal, practice and attitude errors of your church, even when directly presented or mentioned to you.

    I mean this has been going on for months now, specifically on this site, but not even one of these issues have been discussed even when challenged to do so. Naturally I am guessing it’s simply because you know really that there is no justification of any kind behind the errors of the Roman church. Perhaps it could also be that you simply do not know about them enough to be able to respond, I don’t know.

    Lastly, I know from personal experience, that when faced with overwhelming reasons why one’s denomination is at fault, one also gets a pretty big shock, as this may suggest the need for a VERY serious turn and change in their lives, which includes changing years of embedded and fastened beliefs and attitudes. I can fully understand that, anyone going through this kind of shock will tell you this, but unfortunately it does not mean that it’s OK to ignore the facts.

    An example of the attitude of the Roman church which suggest such a serious attitude, doctrinal and practical error is here:

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/religion/2243088/posts

    My question is, If your hierarchy who composed these rules truly believed that they are truly partaking of the body and blood of THE SON Of GOD, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE(S), JESUS CHRIST, would they be afraid of a measly little virus IN FRONT OF THE ENDLESS POWER OF THE CREATOR LIVING IN THE HOLY COMMUNION? And more to the point, I can understand a lack of faith from the side of an individual, it is still wrong, but I understand it can happen.

    But to instate such a faith-lacking set of rules as an institution, shows an enormous depth of doctrinal, faith, practical, attitude gap and even more multitudes of underlying problems and gaps in the Roman church as a “holy” institution.

    But of course, the swine flu did not start all of this, the problem of complete lack of faith was there all along, with the changes introduced by the Roman church in the partaking of the Holy Gifts. They are more scared of the various diseases and “what people would think” rather than the AWESOME ULTIMATE AND UNIVERSAL POWER WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST IN PERFECT PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL PRESENCE IN PERSON, who told us very clearly that this IS his BODY and this IS his BLOOD.

    Do you really think that God almighty would not infect the Holy Gifts selectively if He wanted to, or that He would not purify them selectively if He wanted to, regardless of your attempts to try and contain a disease?

    Thus, now it should be obvious, how a heretical practice such as this change introduced by the Romans, (which we Orthodox pointed out to you many multitudes of times) will ALWAYS DEGENERATE into even more heretical practices and further doctrinal degeneration. And do not think that this is just one minor example. Your whole institution is riddled with faith-lacking and error-infested practices and continuous doctrinal degeneration further into the abyss that is heresy.

    In this context, with WHAT FAITH can the Pope possibly consecrate ANYTHING at the current state of the Roman church? They do not even believe in the pure GODLY POWER residing in the most mysterious way in the Holy Gifts, how can they possibly take on further Faith demanding services to humanity?

    In Orthodoxy, a faithful and pious member of the Church is to see and truly believe that the Most Holy Blood and Body of Christ is exactly that, and hence INFINITELY more than simply impervious to infection or anything else for that matter. The reason for this belief is practical, attitude and doctrinal CORRECTNESS and proper perspective in which the Orthodox Church is saturated.

    Dear readers of this, see things as they are! How can the Roman church be expected to consecrate anything at all, when it does not even trust God to TRULY and MEANINGFULLY and IN PRACTICE consecrate it’s Bread and Wine? Is there really any faith at all left in the Roman church hierarchy?

    Finally I give you this as a very clear metaphor of what is happening:

    Imagine a Restaurant’s Chef (the Roman church) does not trust that their own cooked meat is fully cooked all the way through, so he tells his patrons to take precautions before eating it.

    HOWEVER at the same time, he thinks that he is in the position to ADVISE OTHER MUCH OLDER CHEFS (Orthodox Churches) FROM WHICH HE HAS LEARNED AND CAME FROM before opening his own restaurant!

    And more than that, the older chefs have more than double the experience, and also these other chefs are in possession of the original recipes which they have been practicing from the beginning and have full confidence in their work, so much so, that they it does not even cross their minds to set any precautions about their own “cooking”.

    Does that sound ridiculous to you? Well, in my view THAT’S exactly what is happening here.

    In Christ our Lord,

    Stav

  104. charlie August 2, 2009 @ 6:37 pm

    Stav,

    Fr Joseph is not one to let facts get in the way of the mission.

    You should know this.

    Life is too short… the mission too great….the outcome too vital….the priestly office too lofty and irreproachable.

    also Stav, you and PS should know that;

    - prayer directed towards God never hurt anyone, belonging to God.

    - the Catholic church got into the mess its in, which you are not backward in talking about, by neglecting the Consecration in the first place - such was the importance Almighty God placed on it - and looking back at Communist Russia and the effect on the world you can see why.

    - by studying my posts you will learn something, instead of spewing vitriol and elitism against the historical Catholic Church which, had it not been for Vatican II would have been a massive and powerful institution for good in the entire world.

    The first obligation of us all is love, this is why I never knock another persons religion.

    Peace.

  105. Fr. Joseph August 2, 2009 @ 6:59 pm

    Stav,

    You do NOT read. You do NOT even dare an attempt to examine anything I’ve referenced here.

    You have your own Eastern Orthodox Bishops who AGREE that the Filioque in the Nicene Creed is NOT a matter of deviation from the Apostolic Faith NOR IS IT reason to continue on with this 1,000 year old Schism which arose solely on account of ‘TURF WARS’ - both ecclesiastical as well as political.

    And you are willing to JEOPARDIZE the eternal salvation of countless millions of souls in our contemporary world by doing whatever YOU can personally do to CONTINUE in delaying the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of Russia to the Immaculately Loving Heart of Christ Jesus’ Own Mother per HIS OWN DIVINE WILL and per HIS OWN DIVINE DESIRE!

    Let me ‘go away’ and be by myself for a while as I need to settle down.

    I have to contend with Satanists, Masons, New Agers, the Illuminati, Zionists, Communists, corrupt US politicians, indifferent and antagonistic fellow US citizens who want to do NOTHING yet who want to reap EVERY LAST POSSIBLE BENEFIT and I’ve just lost my PATIENCE in dealing with your Orthodox kind now!

    - Fr. Joseph

  106. Fr. Joseph August 2, 2009 @ 7:31 pm

    The FACTS are - people DIE.

    And upon their DEATHS there is JUDGEMENT.

    And there is HEAVEN, there is PURGATORY and there is eternal damnation forever in HELL.

    …how about CONSIDERING the eternal salvation of souls in our world of 2009 A.D. and their need of ACTUAL DIVINE GRACE from God so as TO HELP THEM ALL to repent and turn back to their God, Father and Creator in Heaven?

    These people NEED the Divine Help, Grace and Assistance of GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.

    And the MOST HOLY THEOTOKOS is perfectly capable of obtaining from GOD HIMSELF an outpouring of His Divine Holy Spirit upon all of contemporary Mankind.

    And THAT God will DO to honor His Mother IF the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA is done out of OBEDIENCE to His Own Perfect and Divine Will per His Mother’s Fatima Instructions to THE BISHOPS of her Son’s Own Church here on earth.

    - Fr. Joseph

  107. charlie August 2, 2009 @ 7:57 pm

    With re: to communion Stav, this cannot be cleared up overnight. Communion is only permissable on the tongue and kneeling. Full stop.

    This is the first, most outrageous sacrilege ever permitted by the Catholic church, that the Lord has to put up with. This will not be fixed outside the traditional tridentine rite which is now allowed by this good pope.

    This is the reason Christ said “When I return, will I find faith on earth.”

    But people like Fr Joseph and other priests of good will are not to blame for this. And more importantly Christ has not left the church on account of this.

    I have witnessed this. “Lo, I am with you EVEN to the end.” He promised.

  108. Fr. Joseph August 2, 2009 @ 8:30 pm

    Went for a nighttime ride in my van to calm down.

    With respect to all of this antagnoism I receive from all of you ORTHODOX here on RZN, here’s what the Gentle Holy Spirit flashed to my mind to share with you.

    The Canon of Sacred Christian Scripture held by the ORTHODOX Church has this passage from the book of the Prophet JONAH

    “And am I not to feel sorry for Ninevah, the great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand PEOPLE WHO CANNOT TELL THEIR RIGHT HAND FROM THEIR LEFT?” - Jonah 4:11

    Brother Nathanael is a CONSECRATED and VOWED RELIGIOUS in the Orthodox Church. He spends hours in prayer and in fasting. He spends many more hours WORKING to research, compose and present his RZN articles.

    Of his 860,000 or so readers/visitors to his Christian ORTHODOX website he receives monthly, there surely MUST BE at least 1,000 visitors to RZN who are of the Orthodox Faith and any of the Eastern ORTHODOX Churches.

    Why don’t those 1,000 visitors/readers of the ORTHODOX Faith and of the ORTHODOX Church at least mail a consecrated and VOWED religious of their own Orthodox Church AT LEAST a measely $5.00 a month in order TO SUPPORT one of their own consecrated and vowed religious?

    Then, all of the Orthodox visitors and readers to RZN, when they come to Br. Kapner’s RZN website here:

    http://www.realzionistnews.com

    why are they SO INCAPABLE of simply looking over to the RIGHT HAND COLUMN and check for the very l-o-n-g list of articles THE LORD Himself by His Divine Grace HELPS Br. Kapner to research, compose and post to the Internet for ALL the peoples of our contemoprary World to read, soak in, mull over and UNDERSTAND - checking in on all of the articles THE LORD Himself has Br. Kapner writing about the nasty, brutal, hereetical, apostate CATHOLIC CHURCH?

    Lots of people here on RZN “cannot tell their RIGHT HANDS from their LEFT”.

    Dear F. Joseph,

    A few days back, you posted the below link to a collection of Fatima photos:.

    http://christcome.net/Fatima/photos-sun.htm

    —-
    For the sake of accuracy, you should be interested in the following Time Magazine item concerning just two of the photos out of the series of eight that are reported to have been shots of the ‘solar miracle’ in 1917.

    Due to an itty-bitty media mix-up 34 years after the event, these two solar photos (the ordinary and the enhanced) you pointed to as documenting the 1917 event where actually shots taken in 1921. These two pictures of the sun were retracted by both the ‘Voice of Fatima’ and L’Osservatore Romano in 1952 after they had been published, as this contemporary Time article also documents as retracting which had reprinted the same pictures in its own 1951 articles.

    http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,816214,00.html

    “The Press: The Miraculous Pictures
    Monday, Mar. 24, 1952

    As evidence of the 34-year-old “Miracle of “Fátima” in Portugal, the Vatican’s newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, recently printed Page One pictures which were reprinted by newspapers and magazines around the globe (TIME, Dec. 3). The pictures showed the sun darkened near the horizon, supposedly shortly after noon on Oct. 13, 1917.

    Thousands of people who had gathered that day, on the same spot where three Portuguese children said they had seen visions of the Virgin Mary, declared that they had seen the noonday sun swirl and dip.

    The pictures were evidence of the miracle, said L’Osservatore, since they were of “rigorously authentic origin” and had been snapped by a witness who “succeeded in fixing the exceptional scene.” Last week, L’Osservatore changed its mind, it now doubted the authenticity of the pictures, and added: “We might very well have been deceived in our good faith.”

    Actually, the pictures were fakes, according to the Voice of “Fátima, the Roman Catholic journal published by the shrine at ” Fátima. “In the interests of accuracy,” it said, the world should know that the pictures were not taken in 1917 at noontime, but in 1921 during “an atmospheric effect at sunset.”

    L’Osservatore got the pictures through Federico Cardinal Tedeschini, who had heard about them from Dr. Joao de Mendonca, a Portuguese government official and member of the reception committee at the shrine’s anniversary celebration last year. Mendonca explained that his deceased brother, an amateur photographer, had taken the pictures of the miracle.

    L’Ossefvatore waited to print the pictures, which had “Fátima, 1917″ written on them, until Mendonca had sent the paper a letter, affirming their authenticity. But later Mendonca explained, as the Voice did, that he had been mistaken and the pictures had indeed been taken towards sunset some years after 1917. The 1917 date had been erroneously written on.”

  110. charlie August 3, 2009 @ 1:08 am

    I once posted a similar theme on a priests blog. He deleted it.

    Pope Benedict to Catholics: Kneel For Communion

    “Whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the Body and of the Blood of the Lord… For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the Body of the Lord” - 1 Corinthians 11:27,28

    Pope Benedict to Catholics:
    Kneel and Receive on the Tongue Only

    Pope Benedict XVI does not want the faithful receiving Communion in their hand nor does he want them standing to receive Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. According to Vatican liturgist, Monsignor Guido Marini, the pope is trying to set the stage for the whole church as to the proper norm for receiving Communion for which reason communicants at his papal Masses are now asked to kneel and receive on the tongue.

    The Holy Father’s reasoning is simple: “We Christians kneel before the Blessed Sacrament because, therein, we know and believe to be the presence of the One True God.” (May 22, 2008)

    According to the pope the entire Church should kneel in adoration before God in the Eucharist. “Kneeling in adoration before the Eucharist is the most valid and radical remedy against the idolatries of yesterday and today” (May 22, 2008)

    The pope’s action is in accord with the Church’s 2000 year tradition and is being done in order to foster a renewed love and respect for the Eucharist which presently is being mocked and treated with contempt. The various trends and innovations of our time (guitar liturgy, altar girls, lay ministers, Communion in the hand) have worked together to destroy our regard for the Eucharist, thus advancing the spiritual death of the church.

    Kneeling also coincides with the Church’s centuries old ordinance that only the consecrated hands of a priest touch the Body of Christ in Holy Communion. “To priests alone has been given power to consecrate and administer to the faithful, the Holy Eucharist.” (Council of Trent)

    It is for reason that Pope Paul VI in his May 1969 pastoral letter to the world’s bishops reaffirmed the Church’s teaching on the reception of Communion, stating that: “This method on the tongue must be retained.” (Memoriale Domini)

    This came in response to the bishops of Holland who started Communion in the hand in defiance of the centuries old decree from the Council of Rouen (650 A.D.) where this practice was condemned as sacrilegious. “Do not put the Eucharist in the hands of any layperson, but only in their mouths.” To date this prohibition has never been overturned legally.

    Today Communion in the hand is carried on illegally and has become a major tool of the enemy to destory the Faith throughout the world. For this practice serves no other purpose than to warp our conception of Jesus Christ and nourish a contempt for the sacred mysteries. It’s no wonder St. Basil referred to Communion in the hand as “a grave fault.”

    . This practice was first introduced to the Church by the heretical Arians [Jews] of the 4th century as a means of expressing their belief that Christ was not divine. Unfortunately, it has served to express the same in our time and has been at the very heart of the present heresy and desecration that is rampant throughout the universal Church. If we have ‘abuse’ problems today it is because we’re abusing the Sacrament - it’s backfiring on us!

    Thanks to Communion in the hand, members of satanic cults are now given easy access to come into the Church and take the Host so that they bring it back to their covens where it is abused and brutalized in the ritualistic Black Mass to Satan.

    They crush the Host under their shoes as a mockery to the living God, and we assist it with our casual practice? Amongst themselves the satanists declare that Communion in the hand is the greatest thing that ever happened to them, and we do nothing to stop it?

    Hence, the Holy Father is doing his part to try to purge the Church of abuse and we as members of Christ are called upon to assist him.

    For your encouragement we include the following quotation from Cardinal Llovera, the new prefect for the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments speaking to Life Site News on July 22, 2009: “It is the mission of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Sacraments to work to promote Pope Benedict’s emphasis on the traditional practices of liturgy, such as reception of Communion on the tongue while kneeling.”

    Also worth considering is the recent decree from Cardinal Caffarra, the Archbishop of Bologna Italy, forbidding the practice of Communion in the hand:

    “Many cases of profanation of the Eucharist have occurred, profiting by the possibility to receive the consecrated Bread on one’s palm of the hand… Considering the frequency in which cases of irreverent behavior in the act of receiving the Eucharist have been reported, we dispose that starting from today in the Metropolitan Church of St. Peter, in the Basilica of St. Petronius and in the Shrine of the Holy Virgin of St. Luke in Bologna the faithful are to receive the consecrated Bread only from the hands of the Minister directly on the tongue.” (from his decree on the reception of the Eucharist, issued April 27, 2009)

    Technically all bishops and clergy are bound to follow the Holy Father’s directive on this issue, but in the meantime the faithful are not obliged to wait for the approval of their bishop in order to kneel for God. The directives of the Holy Father are not subject to the veto or scrutiny of the bishops and therefore all pastors and laity have a right and duty to put these directives into practice for the edification of their communities.

    Dear KathJuliane,

    I wasn’t concerned all that much about showing the photograph of was titled ‘The Miracle of the Sun’ at Fatima, Portugal but to show the photos of the 70,000 people gathered to personally eyewitness the Miracle of the Sun.

    Imagine that, 70,000 people gathered together, all rain dretched, standing out in the middle of nowhere - and they all SIMULTANEOUSLY eyewitness a supernatural miracle right in front of their collective faces.

    And on top of that, after this supernatural miracle, all of them, their clothes and the muddy ground under their feet is miraculously DRY!

    Why don’t people both inside and outside of the Church throughout our entire world simply ADMIT that God has, God does and God will forever more ‘Have The Upper Hand’ in every last aspect of human history and over all of our lives?

    Why don’t we all simply and humbly ‘GIVE UP!’ as well as ‘SHUT UP!’ and pay attention to what God wants DONE here on this planet earth of His Own Creating and Suastaining?

    Order that the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of Russia is DONE by the Bishops of the Church already!

    - Fr. Joseph

  112. Fr. Joseph August 3, 2009 @ 8:29 am

    Dear KathJuliane,

    Yes, I really “BLEW A FUSE” yesterday and had to go for a nighttime ride in my van to pull back together the pieces of myself that blew apart like ’shranpel’ from an exploded grenade.

    There is but only so much frustration, so much antagonism and, if I may dare say this, so much seething ‘anger’ one attempts to keep in line and keep in check.

    So I’m reluctantly coming to accept that there is but only SO MUCH one can do in trying to put all manner of thing - religious, political, economic, societal, etc. - back into its PROPER order so that people the world over might be able TO LIVE THEIR LIVES just like our All-good God and Father in Heaven DESIRES for us all in the very first place.

    So it simply does not matter what I might share in public via the Internet. People are going to contest, resist, reject anything I might have to say or share with them.

    Every last living soul I’ve attempted to contact and share information or warnings to these past 16 years has been, for all manner and purposes, simply swallowed up into this huge spiritual ‘BLACK HOLE’, resulting in a BIG FAT ‘ZERO’. That includes the Church’s hierarchies, World Leaders, Government Officials, Civic and Social Leaders, Fellow Citizens, Fellow Human Beings the world over.

    So ‘What The Heck?’ - it doesn’t matter one iota anymore - let me tell you of a vision the Lord our God granted me about 10 years ago while I was living in Nevada.

    It deals with the prophetic warning given to the entire world and all of Mankind by the Blessed Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Akita, Japan back in August/October 1973 wherein she warns that God is SO ANGRY with the whole lot of us members of the Human Race, that He fully intends to BURN UP this planet earth of ours.

    - Fr. Joseph

  113. Fr. Joseph August 3, 2009 @ 8:41 am

    Dear KathJuliane,

    So, “It Doesn’t Matter” if I tell you of this personal vision granted - no, more like IMPOSED on me - about ‘Fire Falling from Heaven’.

    While living in Nevada - one night while lying in bed, I fell into a kinda/sorta trance - a kinda/sorta shift in one’s conscious attentiveness - and was presented with this ‘live image Vision’ in which I was made a living participant.

    While being shown a vista of a large metropolitan city and surrounding region, the azure blue sky ABOVE this city and from horizon to horizon, east to west, north to south, flickered from an azure blue to a yellow for but a split second.

    All the people, to include myself, noticed this flicker across our sky and atmosphere - and we all ‘blew it off’ as an abberation.

    Again, the sky flickered from an azure blue to yellow, but this time a wee bit longer.

    People took notice and so did I.

    People began to look up to the sky, and so did I.

    Again, the sky flickered from azure blue to yellow, but this time stayed yellow for a good lenght of seconds.

    And then words of panic and fear began to eminate from the people.

    The sky then reverted to azure blue, but then flickered to a yellow-orange.

    At that time, I was given to see-hear the radio stations from Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa, all reporting the occurance of a most unusual astronomical-atmospheric phenomemon having been witnessed from all peoples from all corners of the earth.

    The azure blue sky then turned yellow-orange again - and then ALL worldwide media broadcasting ceased its ‘regular programming’ and every last radio and TV was blaring out news reports of our sky flickering in color.

    There began PANIC in the streets with people gathering in crowds, police trying to control and direct the people.

    “Official Announcements” began coming forth from the world’s TVs and radios.

  114. Fr. Joseph August 3, 2009 @ 8:55 am

    KathJuliane,

    In my vision, the sky then flickered from azure blue directly to a more deeper orange and remained for perhaps a minute or so.

    People started running into their houses and any other sorts of shelter.

    I, myself, ducked into a nearby house via the side door and found the house vacant. On my way into this house, I took notice of a child’s play toy on the landing of the steps - a entirely GREEN type of plastic salamander-reptile sort of toy.

    As I got into the house, from the distant horizon, the sky turned BLOOD RED and this BLOOD RED sky seemed to begin to cover the sky, displacing the translucent ORANGE with this thick, burbling, churning sort of fiery PLASMA or something like it - I dunno - I’m not an physicist or astrophysicist.

    This BLOOD RED sort of burbling/churning fiery PLASMA mass began to cover our earth’s atmosphere much like the rendition in this commerical logo artistic illustration:

    http://iseyz.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/sherwin-williams-logo.jpg

    And this BLOOD RED churning/burbling fiery PLASMA CLOUD seemed to ‘hang’ over the surface of our earth at about maybe 2,000 feet in altitude or so.

    I ducked back into this house and as I went to close the door, the GREEN plastic child’s toy laying on the landing of the steps was no longer green, but solidly and entirely RED!

    I shut the door and hunkered down inside a room of this house.

    I saw the silouhette of some young man running past the window of this house. As I looked out the slits of this window’s blinds, I saw this sinuous twisting and turning tentacle enimate from the BLOOD RED FIERY PLASMA above and it swooped down onto and all around this individual running past the window.

    The most GOSH-AWFUL blood curdling CRY of agony shrieked from that poor young man.

    And then - I immediately was placed into my ‘normal’ conscious-attentive state of mind and heart.

    And I felt the burden of this gosh-awful sick feeling in the pit my stomach.

    But anyways - none of THAT matters anyways as well. Telling that here isn’t going to change anything one iota anyways.

    Let me tell all of you WOMEN a true story dealing with the sublime DIGNITY God has confered upon you as well as God’s Divine Love FOR your children.

    Back in the mid 1980’s when I had a wife and a family of sons, I lived in California.
    We attended Mass at a small Catholic parish in San Diego.

    The parish priest asked for volunteers to help him in the parish at one Mass. Must have been my guardian angel who kept on poking me to volunteer to teach children their catechism lessons.

    After the weeks of classes and preparation to obtain my Catechism Teaching Certificate, I was assigned to teach catechism classes to teenagers and young adults preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

    It was at my very first class that I adopted the policy and practices of telling ALL of my students that I, their teaher, would do their HOMEWORK for all of them.

    And THAT immediately caught their attention.

    After our class session, I would have all of my student take out a piece of paper and write down ANY and ALL questions that arose in their minds during the class of that day, and that I would answer them all, putting down all of the questions and all of the answers out to them at once in my Teacher’s “Homework Report” which I would hand out to each and every last one of my students at the beginning of our NEXT catechism class.

    The students LIKED that idea, and attendance at my classes would always be consistently good. The students wanted to see the answer to their own question AND they wanted to see what other sorts of QUESTIONS cropped up in the minds of their class peers.

    It was about the 3rd or 4th week into our catechism class session of that year that the Director of Religious Instruction came to me and told me that she had yet ONE MORE STUDENT she wanted to include into my class of young teenager boys and girls of 13 or 14 years all just approaching of having just reached puberty.

    The Director privately informed me that this ‘girl’ came from a home wherein the mother was devoutly Catholic but that her husband was abusive to BOTH the mother and her daughter - yet her mother desires for her daughter to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

    I told the Director ‘No problem. There are EMPTY seats in my class.’ The Director left to bring this ‘girl’ into our Confirmation class.

    Now GOD truly does have a ‘Divine Sense of Humor’ and He DOES ‘throw us’ into circumstnaces and situations in order to see WHAT we will do in and with that situation. The following will make you WOMEN as well as some of you MEN laugh.

    The Director brings in this ‘girl’. Her name was Maria.

    In walks the Director with the ‘girl’ Maria.

    Maria turns out to be an 18 year old WOMAN and by gosh, by golly, Maria was really and truly a - and I mean NO irreverence or lewd suggestiveness in putting it in this way from a man’s point-of-view - “DROP DEAD KNOCK ANY MAN OVER SIMPLY GORGEOUS ‘KNOCK OUT’ BOMBSHELL”!

    Maria was of Hispanic-Mexican-Native American Indian heritage. Her full black hair, her perfect glowing olive completion, her rich dark eyes, her physical build and figure, her facial features - I mean EVERYTHING about Maria was “stunning” from this man’s viewpoint.

    Surely, MARIA was one woman who was crafted by God Himself to be one of His Own ‘Masterpieces’.

    Now here is where all of you can LAUGH at this ’spot’ I find myself in.

    Here I am MARRIED with sons of my own teaching RELIGIOUS Catechism Class for the Sacrament of Confirmation to young 13-14 teenage boys and girls just reaching puberty, and the Director of Religious Education brings into MY OWN classroom this 18 year old WOMAN who has just ‘floored me’ on account of her truly potent and present womanly femininity that was simply and effortly ‘oozing’ from her simple presence.

    All of the ‘male/masculine’ CIRCUITS in my skull have been placed on ‘overload’ and are going ‘nuts’. I’m thinking about the fact I’m MARRIED and have wife and family. I’m teaching a RELIGIOUS CLASS to teenagers about God the Holy Spirit, and all I can do is but turn my thoughts upon to Heaven and to God praying for HIS understanding and HIS help in dealing with what is going on inside of me.

    You MEN out there know what it is like in trying very hard to NOT lose one’s sense of perspective of what is going on about you when an overwhelmingly simply mind boggling gorgeous woman is presented to you and placed in your immediate presence.

    Ya gotta admit, that was a VERY FUNNY religious/spiritual ‘Situation Comedy’ I found myself thrust into.

    Anyways, Maria took her seat in an empty seat in the front row of my class, so I had ‘problems’ with focusing and being mindful of what I was teaching my class for that night (grin).

    Maria was dressed in a very MODEST way, but the traits both her seen and unseen feminine nature simply ‘oozed’ from out of her without her even trying or noticing.

    But this ONE THING about Maria that “trumped” all that she really and truly was as one of God’s masterpieces in having creating women.

    Her deep and simply knock-any-man-over with a simple gaze EYES revealed a forlorned, very sad, almost LIFELESS sort of womanly SPIRIT within Maria.

    So with that ‘one CLUE’ given to me in that very private and unspoken way about a very intimate and personal ’secret’ about ‘who’ Maria really and truly was, I made it a point in future classes to put as much effort as I could in explaining to my entire class the many GIFTS and the many BLESSINGS God the Holy Spirit could and WOULD confer on them ALL via the Sacrament of Confirmation.

    To make a long story short, Easter time comes and the students of MY confirmation class all join in at the Easter Liturgical Celebration many call ‘The Grand Slam’ where converts to the Roman Catholic Church and the Apostolic Christian Faith receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Body and Blood of our Lord in the Eucharist.

    I see MARIA gets confirmed - and that is the last I see of the Maria and the student of my Confirmation Class as religious ed classes are now finished.

    Later on that same summer, while I’m working at NAS North Island with all ‘The Guys’ I normally worked with at the naval base, maybe nine or ten of ‘The Guys’ are all sitting around the same lunch room table. All of them get into the regular routine ‘guy talk’ about their exploits, their new possessions, their political victories over advesaries, their parties, their golf games, etc. sitting their quietly pondering about a family problem I’m having with my wife and sons.

    The ‘alpha-male’ of our group of ‘manly men’ gathered at our lunch room table calls out to me ‘Joe. Joe. Wake up! There’s someone calling to you from across the lunch room’

    I look up and there, across the other side of the lunchroom calling out MY name and waving to ME is…

    …MARIA!

    And she is NOT wearing some very bland and modest sort of clothing. She’d bedecked in this ‘KNOCK ‘EM OVER’ womanly business attire.

    She comes over to our table (the ‘alpha-male’ and all of ‘the guys’ are now suffering the same PARALYZING AFFECT of MARIA on all of them (grin)), she comes right up to me and plants this most GLORIOUSLY RICH KISS smack dab on my right cheek..

    …and her stunning eyes are now AGLOW with this FIERY ZEST FOR LIFE AND LIVING…

    …and she is VIBRANTLY SMILING and ALIVE!…

    …and she THANKS ME in front of the ‘alpha-male’ and all of ‘the guys’ for EVERYTHING I did for her in teaching her her religious class for Confirmation…

    …and then she turns, telling me she has to get back to work at her summer-jobs for students position at the base…

    …and she walks away with a very noticeable and characteristic WOMAN walk…

    …and the ‘alpha-male’ and ‘the guys’ are in their state of masculine shock with their eyes riveted on the now departing Maria with mouths slightly open.

    Maria’s one KISS on my RIGHT CHEEK propelled me to the ‘top of the class’ with all of my ‘male peers’ for the rest of the summer.

    That’s the sheer power of the beauty, grace and physical and spiritual CHARMS God has crafted into all of you women!

    God does have is ways of REWARDING us for our attempts to render Him faithful service to and for what He wants DONE here on earth.

    - Fr. Joseph

  120. Fr. Joseph August 3, 2009 @ 12:07 pm

    A concluding reflection on and about MARIA…

    Whoever the man is for whom God the Father created and prepared MARIA to be his wife in the Sacrament of Marriage, that MAN has to be simply waking up each morning giving THANKS to God for being granted HIS ‘gift of life’ and for the woman MARIA.

    Undoubtedly, that man is the father or a LARGE family, and that man takes his sons and daughters into the backyard or some other place and tells them all about just how WONDERFUL their mother Maria really is.

    And his sons and daughters then wind up gathering around their mother Maria and hug her and snuggle up to her and attempt to help her with everything she does in their home.

    And his children, when they think about their father and their mother Maria they, too, turn their minds and hearts in simply CHILD-LIKE prayers of thanksgiving to their God and Father in Heaven.

    And so goes, or is SUPPOSED TO GO, this cycle of LIFE granted to us all, men and women, male and female, all members of the Human Race created in God’s Image and Likeness Who Is Himself the Author and Creator of LIFE and LIVING - for He Himself IS the Eternal Source of ALL LIFE and Being and created nature - whether angelic or human as in MALE or FEMALE, MAN or WOMAN, BOY or GIRL.

    How Kidneys Are Bought And Sold on Black Market

    From: ReporterNotebook Date: 31.07.2009 10:29 PM

    By Rebecca Dube
    Published July 29, 2009, issue of August 07, 2009.

    Six months ago, Ronen came to the United States from Israel on a life-or-death mission. He needed a kidney transplant, or he would die.

    Soon after he arrived and moved into a donated basement apartment in Brooklyn, a man approached him and offered to give him what he wanted most in the world — for a fee. Ronen would have to pay $160,000 for a kidney; the “donor” would get $10,000.

    Ronen is 35, and he has endured nightly dialysis sessions for 15 years.

    The Forward is not publishing his last name to protect his privacy. Because of his failing health, he cannot work.

    His rabbi raised money to get him to New York because organ donations are so rare in Israel. Today, his dream is simple: to get a kidney transplant and “to live a normal life, to marry and to work, and to make a family.”

    But there were two problems with the broker’s offer: He could promise only that the black market kidney would match Ronen’s blood type, not his antibodies, and Ronen didn’t have anywhere near the asking price. So he turned down the man — but not without some regrets.

    “He says to me, ‘Even if you are nice, even if you make a lot of contacts, you need a kidney, Ronen, not just talking,’” Ronen said. “And he’s right.”

    Ronen is still looking for a donor. The man who, by all indications, approached him, Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, is looking at a possible five-year federal prison sentence.

    Rosenbaum was arrested July 23, and charged with conspiracy to transport human organs. It is perhaps the most bizarre subplot of the FBI’s massive money laundering and corruption investigation that yielded 44 arrests in New Jersey and Brooklyn, including the mayors of Hoboken, Secaucus and Ridgefield; two state assemblymen; five rabbis, and numerous other public officials.

    According to the criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey, Rosenbaum told an undercover federal agent on July 13 that he’d been brokering kidney sales for 10 years from his home in Brooklyn.

    “I am what you call a matchmaker,” Rosenbaum said, according to the complaint, before assuring the undercover agent that he’d brokered “quite a lot” of kidney transplants, including one two weeks prior to their conversation.

    Rosenbaum is the first person charged in the United States with trafficking in live human organs, medical ethicist Arthur Caplan said.

    His arrest has illuminated a dark side of the medical world, where the desperately poor sell body parts to the desperately ill, brokers make a profit and medical centers turn a blind eye.

    “There is probably more of this going on,” said Caplan, who serves as director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania and is co-directing a United Nations task force on international organ trafficking. “It is a very lucrative business.”

    The exposure of the organ-trafficking operation surprised most of the medical establishment, who knew of such activity happening overseas but not in the United States. But Rosenbaum’s alleged business was an open secret for years among a certain community of Jewish transplant seekers.

    “Over the years, dozens of people have asked me to help them get in touch with ‘Isaac — the organ broker from Brooklyn.’ I always refused to do so,” said Robert Berman, founder and director of the New York-based Halachic Organ Donor Society, which encourages organ donation among observant Jews in the United States, Israel and other countries.

    Berman said that while he personally supports the idea of changing the law to allow people to get paid for giving someone else a kidney — after all, he noted, doctors get paid for doing the operation — he does not condone any illegal activity.

    “The black market is obviously not ideal. People get ripped off,” he said.

    Berman founded the Halachic Organ Donor Society to combat the notion that Jewish law does not permit organ donation. Because of that misperception, he said, Israel has one of the lowest organ donor rates in the world, which is why many Israelis travel to the United States in hopes of finding a match.

    “Jews have no problem putting themselves on the list to get an organ, but when it comes to donating, they have a lot of religious reasons not to,” Berman said.

    An expert in the organ black market said that Rosenbaum was America’s main broker for an international trafficking network.

    Nancy Scheper-Hughes, a professor of medical anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, said she told the FBI about Rosenbaum’s operation back in 2002.

    Scheper-Hughes did not respond to interview requests; however, she told the New York Daily News and WNYC public radio that Rosenbaum recruited impoverished kidney sellers from Moldova — where, she said, she visited a village where 20% of the men had sold a kidney. According to the criminal complaint, Rosenbaum told potential clients that the kidney sellers came from Israel.

    Scheper-Hughes said that the kidney sellers described Rosenbaum as a thug who threatened them with a pistol if they expressed hesitation once they arrived in the United States for the operation.

    But to potential clients, Rosenbaum presented a kind and caring face.

    “He tried to help me,” Ronen said of his would-be broker. Ronen related that even after he turned down the offer, the broker called and gave him advice on how to find a volunteer kidney donor. “My feeling is that he is a good person, I can trust him,” Ronen said.

    Medical centers interview potential transplant donors to make sure they are suitable matches, and a psychological screening is usually included, as well.

    Because paying for organs is illegal, Rosenbaum would create fictional relationships between the recipient and the seller, according to the criminal complaint, and would coach both of them on what to say.

    “I put together the story,” Rosenbaum said, according to the complaint. “Could be neighbors, could be friends from shul, could be friends from the community, could be friends of his children… business friends.”

    More careful screening probably would expose fake relationships, Caplan said, but clearly that didn’t happen, as Rosenbaum allegedly operated his trafficking ring successfully for a decade without detection.

    “Some hospitals just don’t care,” Caplan said, noting that medical centers make about $100,000 per kidney transplant. “They want to make the money and do the transplant — they’re not picky.”

    Caplan opposes legalizing the sale of human organs, saying that exploitation is inevitable no matter what the legal status. Medical centers should standardize and tighten their donor screenings, he said. According to Caplan, the going rate for kidney sellers ranges from $500 in India to $10,000 in Israel.

    “The people who sell are almost always incredibly poor. They’re usually up to their eyeballs in debt,” Caplan said. “The people who are involved in this are past the point of desperation. They’re not making some sort of calculated decision.”

    The black market for kidney donation is thriving because demand far outstrips supply. More than 80,000 people are on the kidney transplant waiting list in the United States, and every year about 4,500 die while waiting, according to the National Kidney Foundation.

    Last year, 16,517 transplants were performed in the United States: 10,550 with cadaver organs from people who died, and 5,967 from living donors.

    For people like Ronen, who have been playing by the rules, there’s not much to do but wait and hope — even though time is running out.

    “It is very difficult,” Ronen said. “We need a miracle.”

    With everyone’s understanding and Br. Nathanael’s permission from RZN, I’d like to take a break from having to address all of this morbid mayhem going on throughout our contemporary world.

    I’ve been working on aircraft and aircraft powerplants for 35 years now - and that has gotten old.

    And I’ve been working against all of this morbid mayhem in all sorts of ways for 25 years now - since 1984 believe it or not - and that, too, has and is getting very, very old as well.

    So I’d just like to use this particular article’s comment section to ’shoot the breeze’ with all of you regarding our spiritual and religious lives.

    Just as one might ‘disect’ a human body to find out what is inside it, how all of those things are tied together and what they are supposed to DO:

    http://www.humananatomycourse.com/?hop=19jrs54

    I’d just like to take the time to share with all of you what I’ve discovered by ‘disection’ these past years in my own religious and spiritual live.

    Maybe this stuff will help you - maybe not. I’ll leave that to the Lord.

  123. Fr. Joseph August 4, 2009 @ 7:38 pm

    It was the Catholic saint, St. Ignatius of Loyola, who makes the following observation to be prayerfully meditated on by individuals doing a religious-spiritual retreat using St. Ignatius’ “The Spiritual Exercises”

    His first contemplative-prayerful meditation to make goes something like this as I’m paraphrasing him form memory:

    “Consider that a certain number of years ago, you were not yet born, you did not have life, you did not even exist.

    “My word, WHERE were then?

    “God out of His Divine Love had a Thought about YOU and He so loved that Thought of you that He willed you into existance and granted you life.”

    - Fr. Joseph

  124. Fr. Joseph August 4, 2009 @ 7:49 pm

    Sacred Christian Scripture, inspired to be written and recorded by God the Holy Spirit Himself, makes the statement that ALL OF US are created in the Image and Likeness of God.

    There isn’t a living human soul in our contemporary world - and I don’t care what his or her background, social standing, level of education, number/quantity/amount of personal possessions, race, creed, color or national origin who does NOT want to be known by others, understood by others, loved, cherished, respected, valued, recognized by others.

    And THE REASON why we ALL find that we want to be known by others, understood by others, loved by others, cherished by others, respected by others, valued by others, recognized by others is BECAUSE we are ALL created in the very Image and Likeness of God Himself.

    Now GOD Is Three Divine Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - Who ALL SHARE in the same Divine Nature and share the same Divine Life.

    The FATHER perfectly and totally knows, undertands and loves His SON.

    The SON perfectly and totally knows, understands and loves His FATHER.

    The HOLY SPIRIT perfectly and totally knows, understands and loves the FATHER and the SON.

    The FATHER perfectly and totally knows, understands and loves the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT.

    The SON perfectly and totally knows, understands and loves the FATHER and the HOLY SPIRIT.

    The HOLY SPIRIT perfectly and totally knows, understands and loves the FATHER and the SON.

    The Blessed Trinity, the Triune Godhead Is Three Divine Persons perfectly and totally intimately eternally united in Their Knowledge of Each Other, Their Understanding of Each Other and Their Loving Acceptance and Cherishing of Each Other.

    - Fr. Joseph

  125. Fr. Joseph August 4, 2009 @ 8:04 pm

    So we human beings - around 6 billion of us or so - ALL want to be known, understood, loved, cherished and accepted. And ALL OF US want to be included into a larger community of other persons who will take the time to get to know us, understand us, love us, cherish us and accept us.

    But being created in the Image and Likeness of God Himself DOES NOT make any of us one of the Three Divine Persons Who abide in Their Divine Nature or Their Divine Life.

    I’m not God. You’re not God. No living being currently on this planet earth is God.

    God is God and God is the Creator.

    We are CREATURES who are creations of the Creator Who Is God in Whose Image and Likeness all of us are created.

    So what does it mean to be ‘created in the Image and Likeness of God’?

    God, in His Divine Nature and in His Possession of His Divine Life can best be described to us in noting His Divine Traits:

    God is Omniscient - that is to say, God KNOWS all things.

    God is Omnipresent - that is to say, God is PRESENT everywhere.

    God is Omnipotent - that is to say, God is capable of doing ANYTHING.

    So, if we ARE created in His Image and Likeness BUT we are not endowed with His Divine Nature of His Divine Life He Himself Eternally Lives and Abides, we can thus safely say and conclude

    God is Omniscient - We are NOT Omniscient but we DO have a finite ability to be conscious or aware of ourselves and all that is about us.

    God is Omnipresent - We are NOT Omnipresent but we DO have and possess a finite presence we all expeirence momemt by moment somewheres on the surface of this planet earth OR ‘up in space’ if NASA picks up the tab for the cost of getting us up there.

    God is Omnipotent - We are NOT Omnipotent but we DO have and possess a finite capacity TO DO all sorts of things here on earth - or up in space if NASA permits.

    Hence, we ARE all created in the Image and Likeness of God - BUT - none of us possess the Divine Nature nor do we possess His Eternal Divine Life.

    God is our Creator. We are all His creations and we are all is ‘creatures’.

    God has CONCEIVED us and has endowed us all with LIFE and BEING - hence, it is most appropriate and entirely fitting to refer to, address and pray to our God with the words

    ‘OUR FATHER’

    - Fr. Joseph

  126. Fr. Joseph August 4, 2009 @ 8:10 pm

    So as the medical teams of Tel Aviv and Israel cut open the physical bodies of people created in the Image and Likeness of God Himself in order to YANK OUT their kidneys and whatnot so as to SELL THEM for the sake of making a personal monetary profit - let US take up a disection of our human spirits our FATHER IN HEAVEN has granted to all of us.

    We will NOT have to take or diminish the physical life of another human being in order to do so - NO ONE will get hurt - and EVERYONE can keep that which God the Father has endowed EVERYONE with here on planet earth - a SPIRIT which is very much like His Very Own Divine Spirit, a spirit that is within us that is very capable of coming to know, understand, love and cherish GOD as ‘OUR FATHER’!

    - Fr. Joseph

  127. Fr. Joseph August 4, 2009 @ 8:36 pm

    So we being by laying out our ’spirit’ on our own disection table by our personal examination of very own selves that we truly DO have the following spiritual traits with co-exist and are mutually connected together making up ‘the whole’

    Spiritually speaking, our spirits consist of

    Consciousness-Awareness/Presence/Potencies

    Now ‘WHAT ON EARTH’ can any human being currently on planet earth DO with this thing called his/her ’spirit’ which consists of Conscious-Awareness, Presence and being Potent?

    As very SIMPLE examination of WHAT 6 billion human beings all created with a ’spirit’ created in the Image and Likeness of God Himself are CURRENTLY doing on planet earth might seem to generate an almost ‘infinite’ number and types of things TO DO with their lives and lifetimes, but closer examination reveals such is NOT the case. We DO NOT have an ‘infinite’ number of things we can DO with these lives and lifetimes of ours.

    And ‘Why is that? Why do you assert such a thing? Just LOOK at the vast types and varieties of things we can do with our lives and lifetimes!’

    The English language has THREE infinite VERBS which summarily defines and encompasses anything and everything ANY single individual or group of individual can or might DO with their lives and lifetimes.

    ALL human actions and human activities regarding LIFE and its LIVING fall neatly and predictably into ONE of THREE categories: 1) Being, 2) Doing and 3) Having.

    Time to break out the SCALPELS in order to start DISECTING - but if you didn’t like BIOLOGY in high school and would rather play TIC-TAC-TOE in study hall, you can still play Tic-Tac-Toe and disect the human spirit.

    Laying Consciousness-Presence-Potency on the horizontal and THEN, on the vertical i descending order one places To Be, To Do and To Have, one winds up with a Tic-Tac-Toe grid which looks like this if it prints out correctly on this post

    ……Consciousness…Presence…Potency
    To Be
    ………………………………….
    To Do
    ………………………………….
    To Have
    ………………………………….

    One has thus disected one’s own spirit into 9 distinct areas or regions in this grid.

    Each one of the 9 areas or regions contains a ’spiritual ORGAN’ - kinda like one are being a kidney, one area being a lung, one area being a stomach, one area a brain, etc.

    And that spiritual grid really and truly does EXIST in each and every last one of us just as each and every last one of us has BONES and MUSCLES and GUTS and SKIN and BLOOD.

    - Fr. Joseph

  129. Fr. Joseph August 4, 2009 @ 9:04 pm

    It’s getting late for me - haven’t even offered up my private votive Mass yet for our Lord and our God’s Universal Church Militant here on earth - so let me make this (unfortunately) brief and perhaps much too quick

    We all have the ability to REASON. We all have an Intellect. We all have Imaginations.

    We all have feelings, sensations and emotions.

    We all have a FREE WILL.

    We are all capable of Erotic Love, Brotherly Love and Self-less Self-giving Love known in the Greek as ‘Agape’.

    Somethings in life happen, occur and are exprienced in an INVOLUNATRY manner, others in a VOLUNTARY manner - and other things are undertaken and experienced in a MANDATORY manner.

    To Be or Being = Reason + Love + Mandatory

    To Do or Doing = Intellect + Free Will + Voluntary

    To Have or Having = Imaging + Feel/Sense + Involuntary

    Just drop ‘Reason’, ‘Love’, ‘Mandatory’ into the grid spaces left to right in the ‘To Be’ horizontal

    Just drop ‘Intellect’, ‘Free Will’, ‘Voluntary’ into the grid spaces left to right in the ‘To Do’ horizontal

    Just drop ‘Imaging/Imagination’ ‘Feelings/Sensations’ ‘Involuntary’ into the grid spaces left to right in the ‘To Have’ horizontal

    Now there remains but ONE MORE unseen spiritual faculty that ALL OF US have - it’s called ‘MEMORY’.

    The spiritual ‘machinery’ that we ARE which is contained in the Tic-Tac-Toe spiritual grid of Being, Doing and Having churns out all sorts of actions and behaviours we’ve either experienced, initiated or undertaken in our lifetimes.

    All of that personal spiritual ‘product’ we’ve churned out in the course of our lives in USING this common spiritual nature we ALL HAVE/SHARE in common winds up being collected by and collected WITHIN the ‘Memory’.

    And it is the spiritual ’stuff’ in our MEMORIES of our behaviors and actions and conduct here in this world of ours prior to our mortal deaths with which GOD will use TO JUDGE US upon our mortal deaths.

    Now God in Christ Jesus has given us the ability to use for our very selves a ‘Divine Eraser’ which is called CONFESSION OF OUR SINS - and if we avail ourselves TO that Divine Eraser - God Himself NO LONGER ‘SEES’ lots and lots of nasty STUFF that our own personal MEMORY has recorded for Divine Review upon our personal mortal deaths.

    Gotta go - I think that’s enough for tonight.

    - Fr. Joseph

  130. Fr. Joseph August 4, 2009 @ 11:31 pm

    So let us ponder yet further and deeper into these FINITE created spiritual natures our FATHER in Heaven has endowed us all with.

    First, for a little reality check just to ensure to ourselves that we DO have a finite nature - meaning to say, we are NOT God, yet we ARE created in His Image and Likeness.

    Consider God’s Omnipresence and our NON-OMNIpresence.

    If you, dear reader, are currently in London England, I can safely bet the equivalent of the US national debt that you are NOT currently in Milan Italy. And I can safely double, triple and quadruple that bet that you are NOT here with me at my hermitage. So both you and I have a FINITE presence thus rendering both you and I ‘non-gods’ or ‘non-goddesses’ if you prefer.

    The same applies to your created spiritual potencies. IF you are enjoying in a very INVOLUNTARY way the comforts that derive from soaking in a hot tub, you are NOT voluntarily engaged in repairing your car or sailing aboard your yatch managing its sails and rudder.

    Now a most interesting thing every last human being alive on planet earth might be surprised to discover about their FINITE spiritual attribute of consciousness or awareness if you prefer.

    On account of none of us having OMNISCIENCE, meaning to say, not one of us KNOWS ALL THINGS, a very common self-evident truth staring all of us in the face is that each and every last one of us alive on planet earth - and I care not for one’s social standing, pedigree, personal wealth, education, age, race, creed, color, gender or national origin - is that we all share in the common human spiritual activity of ASKING QUESTIONS!

    In our ASKING QUESTIONS, we acknowledge the factual KNOWLEDGE to ourselves and to each other that we do NOT KNOW everything.

    Hence, in order TO KNOW about something or anything at all on account of our NON-omniscience, we KNOW ENOUGH to ask questions!

    Isn’t THAT amazing - we KNOW that we DO NOT KNOW yet we KNOW that we can COME TO KNOW.

    Now the desire TO KNOW consists the spiritual necessity of asking QUESTIONS.

    In examining the nature of questions in order to come TO KNOW that which we DO NOT KNOW, perhaps it should astound us and perhaps gladden us TO KNOW that there is a very DEFINITE LIMIT on the types of questions we might ask in order TO KNOW.

    Those Questions are 1) Who? 2) What? 3) When? 4) Where? 5) How? 6) Which? and 7) Why?

    If it never has dawned upon us when we are YOUNG, it does dawn upon us when we are a wee bit older and wiser that AT SOME POINT IN and DURING OUR OWN LIVES, we either have to or are confronted by the Questions

    1) Who am I? 2) What am I? 3) When am I? 4) Where am I? 5) How am I? 6) Which am I? and 7) Why am I?

    And the corresponding Set of Questions to the foregoing dealing with our spiritual natures as CREATURES of a CREATOR truly is RELIGIOUS in nature:

    1) Who is God? 2) What is God? 3) When is God? 4) Where is God? 5) How is God? 6) Which is God? and 7) Why is God?

    With respect to the seven questions about OURSELVES, we who are NOT our own Creator and who are NOT God as well as for the seven questions about GOD, who can possibly give us the real, true and actually substantial ANSWER to those two sets of seven questions BUT GOD HIMSELF?

    Every last one of us currently alive, I am quite certain, has encountered the seeking of KNOWING about something or anything by asking a question - and we’ve been given an answer - but we find out that the provided answer to our question was FALSE, was MISLEADING, was ENTIRELY INACCURATE.

    So if GOD Who is Omniscient created us with a FINITE nature which renders us LACKING in knowledge, and that LACKING in knowledge leaves us no other recourse of spiritual action BUT to ask questions - yet we find that there have been, are and will continue to be instances where we will be given a FALSE, MISLEADING and ENTIRELY INACCURATE answer to our question(s) - we then are exposed to the spiritual reality there is this source from which every manner of FALSE and MISLEADING and ENTIRELY INACCURATE, hence ENTIRELY UNTRUSTWORTHY answer regarding Truthful Knowledge eminates and derives its assertions.

    From our very FINITE powers of personal and communal experience with the actual reality of FALSE and LYING answers - we come to recognize and realize the actual spiritual existance of EVIL.

    We can most readily deduce for our very limited and finite selves that while there is a Source of All that is seen and Unseen - a Creator Who has created us with these FINITE natures of ours which have a dire need to ask QUESTIONS on account of the vital necessity of obtaining TRUTHFUL ANSWERS to such questions as ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Who is God?’ - there is this source which WILL attempt to give us and make us believe FALSE and MISLEADING answers with respect to ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Who is God?’

    The source that provides FALSE and MISLEADING information so as to never obtain the REAL spiritually truthful answer to the questions ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Who is God?’ does so for the expressed purpose of keeping us alienated, estranged, distanced, ignorant of and indifferent to the God Who created us in the very first place!

    Now ‘WHY?’ would anything or any person desire to keep us AWAY FROM KNOWING Who is God? And How is God?

    It’s a GOOD THING for every last person on planet earth to ponder and dwell upon THAT particular question

    ‘WHY would anything or any person desire to keep any of us AWAY FROM GOD?’

    As we wake up to yet another day and take a moment to “inventory” ourselves, we all find that we are still who we are. We still have the same physical body. We still have the same unseen spiritual tic-tac-toe “matrix” which forms the unseen substance of our own personhood. We are still in the same place with the same sky above and same ground under our feet.

    Another day of life and the living of that life is upon us. We all simply submit to yet living life within a seen All not of our own making. And that perpetually abiding desire we all relentlessly carry deep within us - to be kwown, to be understood, to be loved, to be cherished, to be respected, to be valued, to be recognized is still there as we all venture forth into this day’s activities in this ‘world’ created by our human race now consisting of around 6 billion people.

    And IF it is on account of our being created in God’s Image and Likeness that all of us perpetually have to carry this inner desire to be known, understood, loved, cherished, respected, valued, recognized and accepted, then why aren’t 6 billion fellow members of this same human race of which WE are apart working together and cooperating together in order to come to the possession of this God so as to obtain His Infinite knowledge, understanding, love, cherishing, respect, valuing, recogntion and acceptance?

    Alas, we come to the shocking and disturbing realization that this ‘bridge’ between us and God, this unseen spiritually and Divinely ‘engineered’ created COMPONENT within God’s Creation has FAILED and it appears that we members of the human race are ’stranded’ and have been somehow seperated from God.

    So we conclude the spiritual reality that there is this ’someone’ or ’something’ which has FAILED in being the ‘bridge’, the Divinely engineered ‘Component’, that was MEANT TO SERVE as our link and our connection with our All-good God.

    And this same FAILED Divinely engineered and created ‘Component’ must surely be the sole source of all of this FALSE, MISLEADING and ENTIRELY INACCURATE answers as to how do we return to and coming into the personal possession and experience of an All-good God Who Is the Source of all Knowledge, Understanding, Love, Cherishing, Respect, Valuing, Recognition and Acceptance.

    Herein do ALL OF US come to confront the reality of ‘the evil one’ who has FAILED our All-good God in serving as a spiritual ‘bridge’, a Divinely engineered spiritual ‘Component’ within our All-good God’s Creation.

    We’ve come to confront as well as consider the nature of ‘the evil one’, his original Divine commission-mission-purpose to and for our entire Human Race.

    Just for a moment, let us all OURSELVES consider a ‘What If?’ scenario presented to own very own self.

    In truth, what would be YOUR reaction to this ‘Offer Of Employment’ as the vast majority of people nowadays are NOT simply self-sufficiently wealthy and the vast majority of us DO something or WANT TO DO something in order to acquire the necessary ‘money’ to purchase/trade for those personal things we desire to have, use and possess.

    An Incredibly Wealthy Partnership of Individuals comes to you personally and makes you the following ‘Offer of Employment’.

    The Salary? $10,000,000 dollars a day, or the equivalent in any currency in use in our contemporary world of 2009 Anno Domini.

    The Perks? This Wealthy Partnership will provide you with your own personal estate twice the size of the State of Montana which is for your own personal use as you see fit and so desire.

    On this Estate, this Wealthy Partnership will provide you with a palace and grounds the size of Manhattan Island staffed with every imaginable type of servant who will do all of your cooking, chores, grounds keeping, maintenance, shopping, personal medical care 24/7, security, etc.

    You will be given access to and free use of a large fleet of personal aircraft, all sorts and types of boats, yatchs, sailing vessels, a huge fleet of every manner of exotic and luxury vehicles to use as you see fit permitting you to go ANYWHERE in the world when you so chose to go there.

    And for this personal SALARY, for all of these personal PERKS this Wealthy Partnership offers you in order TO ENTICE you into accepting Their ‘Job’ - Their ‘Job Description’ is simply this:

    Every Monday through Friday at 11:30 A.M., this Wealthy Partnership wants for YOU to go down to a local grammar school of 100 students dispersed throughout grades K to 8.

    At that grammar school, a delivery truck will be to meet you daily at 11:30 A.M.

    The Wealthy Partnership desires that YOU take out 100 boxed lunches from that delivery truck and to distribute them to each of the 100 grammar school students who will ALL be seating at their tables of their school’s lunch room.

    And ALL of these 100 grammar school students will be BEHAVING themselves while seated in their seats in their grammar school’s lunch room.

    THAT is the entire ‘Job Description’ and ‘Employment Duties/Responsibilities’ of this OFFER made to you by this Wealthy Partnership.

    Monday through Friday, at 11:30 A.M., the distribution of 100 boxed lunches to 100 students of a grammar school. When you accomplish THAT, the rest of the day is your ‘free time’. No lunches are served on Saturday and Sunday. And when school is out for summer vacation - YOU are on vacation as well.

    Well, what do you think about THIS Job Offer from this Wealthy Partnership?

    Would YOU take the Wealthy Partnership’s JOB?

    And perhaps more so to the point, would you be FAITHFUL and TRUSTWORTHY and would you have a degree of GRATITUDE to this Wealthy Partnership in carrying out the duties and responsibility of this ‘Job’ They are offering you?

    Now to make it UNMISTAKABLY clear, lucid, simple, succinct, transparent and OBVIOUS to every last living soul alive on our planet earth of 2009 Anno Domini who might read these postings of mine here on RZN so that there is NO POSSIBLE ARGUMENT or DISAGREEMENT with me in what I’m relaying here to all of you:

    The GRAMMAR SCHOOL happens to be our PLANET EARTH!

    The 100 Grammar School Students ARE the six billion human beings living and alive on planet earth in this year of 2009 Anno Domini.

    The LUNCH BOX contains Divine and Spiritual Truths and eternal and irrevocable FACTS concerning God, His seen and Unseen Creation and His Divine and Holy Will for ALL OF US.

    And this Divively Created EMPLOYEE who was GIVEN the Divine Job of DELIVERING these Lunch Boxes prepared by GOD THE FATHER HIMSELF for all of HIS spiritual children who came to be alive and ENROLLED in this Planet Earth’s spiritual GRAMMAR SCHOOL was the elemental spirit our Human Race knows by the name of ‘LUCIFER’ who has become God’s and OUR ‘Advesary’ - and the name ‘SATAN’ simply means ‘Adversary’.

    ‘LUNCH TIME’ for all of us in grades K through 8 consists of those times during the course of our waking or sleeping day, when our MINDS and our FREE WILLS are not busy with learning all of the myriad of “How To’s” that we are ALL charged to learn and master with these God-given human incarnate spiritual natures from the moment of our births to the moment of our mortal deaths - and we are AT EASE and UNBURDENED with our ‘Classroom Lessons and Homework’ for either that day OR for that phase of living life and maturing in the living of these lives of ours in which we might currently be immersed and assigned to!

    - Fr. Joseph

  135. Fr. Joseph August 5, 2009 @ 9:43 am

    LUCIFER’S ‘Job’ was a VERY SIMPLE TASK assigned to him by our God and Father in Heaven.

    God Himself lives in and IS sheer blinding Divine Light, Brilliance, Luster and, if you wish, a Divine FIRE.

    No man can ‘look upon the Face of God and live’ precisely because a DIRECT EXPOSURE to His Divine Nature AS Almighty God would “fry”, would “burn out”, would serverly “damage” our own delicate created human spiritual natures.

    Just as all of us need for our eye’s pupils to CONTRACT tightly closed in order to protect our eye’s retinas from a blistering sunny day - and just as we all might need to put on very DARK SUNGLASSES to go outside on a very bright and sunny day - and just as we all actually NEED TO put on a WELDER’S HELMET fitted with almost opaque light-prohibiting LENS across our eyes when we do WELDING with plasma or with acetylene gas and oxygen - our human created spiritual natures are DELICATE.

    And our created human spiritual natures ARE delicate on account of having been created and given spiritual life by the MOST GENTLE, LOVING, KIND and CAREFUL Divine Father, God and Creator in Heaven Who Himself Lives in and with His Divine Nature of an Infinite Degree of Power which eternally RADIATES from His Own Divine Being.

    Hence, our God and FATHER in Heaven created FOR US, His spiritual children here on earth, a ‘Light Bearer’ who was meant to bring ALL OF US our ‘Divine Box Lunches’ WHILE we are attending this spiritual GRAMMAR SCHOOL here on this planet earth of our God’s Creating when we were NOT absorbed by or preoccupied with our current individual and collective ‘Living Life Together’ spiritual LESSONS in K through 8!

    This ‘Light Bearer’, this ‘Lucifer’, with his $10,000,000 a day salary, his twice the size of the State of Montana personal estate, with his size of the island of Manhatttan personal palace and grounds, with his entire staff of support individuals, with his fleet of aircraft, ships, boats, vehicles of every sort, with his 23 hours of free time every day, with his Saturdays and Sundays off, with his 3 month summer vacations to do anything he wanted, to indulge himself in any sort and type of recreation and vacation activities,

    ..this LUCIFER having ALL OF THAT took it upon himself TO SPIRITUALLY STARVE each and every last one of you enrolled in God the Father’s Own Spiritual GRAMMAR SCHOOL we all call our planet earth.

    - Fr. Joseph

  136. Fr. Joseph August 5, 2009 @ 9:56 am

    Understand this - Lucifer’s Divine Job was to act as a Spiritual PRISM to and for us all.

    His ‘Job’ was to DIFFUSE the Unapproachable Infinite Divine Brilliance of God Himself in such a way as to both SOFTEN and to GENTLY DECREASE the Infinite Intensity of God’s Own Divine Being and Eternal Nature so that EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US might be able to actually personally ’see’ God so as in order to recognize Him and to acknowledge Him as OUR FATHER in Heaven!

    Some of us can only spiritually see ‘red’. Some of us can only spiritually see ‘green’.
    And some of us can only spiritually see ‘blue’.

    But ALL of the red, ALL of the green, ALL of the blue exists solely become they and everything else in Creation eminate from God’s Own Divine Nature - from He Himself!

    And to spiritually see God’s ‘Red’ is to be able to ’see’ God the Father.

    And to spiritually see God’s ‘Green’ is to be able to ’see’ God the Father.

    And to spiritually see God’s ‘Blue’ is to be able to ’see’ God the Father.

    And as each one of us, during our own personal and/or communal LUNCH TIME, we were all meant to be given something spiritually NOURISHING and GOOD TO EAT so that ALL OF US could remember that, back at Home, OUR FATHER in Heaven awaited us to return to Him from School Time.

    How many of your natural-biological FATHERS have prepared LUNCHES for your own children when they went off to school or on a day trip or to some playground-amusement park? Or, for that matter, how many of you MOTHERS have prepared LUNCHES for your own children?

    What would be YOUR reaction if THE JANITOR at that school, playground, amusement park, took it upon himself to COLLECT your own personally prepared LUNCH for your own children - and then THREW THEM AWAY - and instead gave DOG FOOD to your children to eat along with a glass of SEWER WATER?

    - Fr. Joseph

  137. Fr. Joseph August 5, 2009 @ 10:47 am

    Now about God the Father in Heaven wanting ALL OF YOU to have a good and spiritually nourising DIVINE “LUNCH” - a Divine LUNCH that Lucifer has SUMMARILY REFUSED to provide to and for all of you - that Lucifer who wants for ALL OF YOU to go on and on eating DOG FOOD and drinking SEWER WATER all the days of your lives and that of the lives of your family, friends, loved ones and fellow countrymen:

    “So I say to you: ASK, and it will be given to you; SEARCH, and you will find; KNOCK, and the Door will be opened to you. For the one who ASKS always receives; the one who SEARCHES always finds; the one who KNOCKS will always have the Door opened to him. What FATHER among you would hand His son a stone when he asked for Bread? Or hand him a snake instead of a fish? Or hand him a scorpion if he asked for an egg? If you then, who are evil, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will the Heavenly FATHER give the HOLY SPIRIT to those who ask Him!”

    - The Gospel according to St. Luke - Lk 11:9-13

    - Fr. Joseph

  138. Fr. Joseph August 5, 2009 @ 11:00 am

    Now regarding ‘KNOCKING at THE DOOR’ - let me ellaborate more fully on that.

    If you DON’T have ‘The Keys’ to THE DOOR, you are simply reduced to the state of HAVING to knock and knock and knock again in order to have THE DOOR opened to you…

    …BUT…if you just so happen to have ‘THE KEYS’ to that DOOR, you yourself have the ability, the ‘power’ so to speak, to OPEN THE DOOR and get for yourself what is behind that Door - that which is stored behind that Door.

    And what is it that GOD THE FATHER wants to give to those who, by their own persistant initiative keep on KNOCKING at that Door on account of a real, true and actual spiritual NEED they have?

    God the Father provides us with His Divine LUNCH of His Holy Spirit when we ask, search for and knock on the Door of the One Who HAS an Infinite Supply of the Holy Spirit.

    But ‘What If?’ you have been given ‘THE KEYS’ to that same Door? And you KNOW there is an Infinite amount of God’s Lunch - His Holy Spirit - behind that Door?

    And ‘What If?’ you who has ‘The Keys’ to that Door looked all around you and all across this World of ours in this year 2009 Anno Domini and see God the Father’s spiritual children STARVING TO DEATH and in DIRE NEED of emergency nourishment and sustinance?

    Would YOU take those ‘Keys’, insert them into the Door’s Lock, turn those ‘Keys’ to disarm the Door’s Lock so as to obtain for God the Father’s spiritually starving children throughout this world of His creating as much DIVINE ‘LUNCH’ as they could possible eat for the rest of their lives here in God’s GRAMMAR SCHOOL of planet earth?

    The BISHOP OF ROME has had God Hismelf entrust HIM with ‘The Keys’ - and the Pope along with the Bishops of the Church DO have God’s Authorization and God’s Own Divine Permission to OPEN THE DOOR TO HIS DIVINE HOUSE so as to make avialable any quantity and amount of His Holy Spirit ‘TO EAT’ here on and all across this World of 2009 Anno Domini!

    That ‘Key’ of the Bishop of Rome fits perfectly and operates flawlessly to UNLOCK Heaven’s Door via ordering the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of Russia to the Immaculately Loving Heart of Jesus’ Own Mother per her 1917 A.D. Fatima Apparitions Messages and Instructions!

    - Fr. Joseph

  139. Fr. Joseph August 5, 2009 @ 11:14 am

    In having been ENTRUSTED with ‘The Keys’ to the God’s Door in Heaven, the Bishop of Rome is very much like the Old Testament patriarch JOSEPH in our contemporary day and age.

    Our World and its Human Race, all spiritual children of God our Father in Heaven are STARVING TO DEATH from proper spiritual nourishment and nutrition in this year of 2009 Anno Domini!

    From the Book of Genesis, we read about the WHAT the Old Testament patriarch JOSEPH did with ‘The Authority’ entrusted to him by the HIGHEST RULER of the land and over all of the people, Pharoah:

    “The seven years of famine began to come as JOSEPH had said. There was famine IN EVERY COUNTRY, but there was Bread to be had throughout of the land of Egypt. When the whole country began to feel the famine, the people cried out to Pharoah for bread. But Pharoah told all the Egpytians ‘Go to JOSEPH and do what he tells you’ - There was famine all over the world. Then JOSEPH OPENED ALL OF THE GRANARIES ADN SOLD GRAIN TO THE EGYPTIANS.” - Genesis 41:54-57

    So instead of ’selling God’s Grain’ from His Divine Granaries in Heaven contained in His Granaries behind ‘The Door’ - the BISHOP OF ROME who the Highest Ruler has entrusted with ‘The Keys’ can simply OPEN THE DOOR of Heaven - and all of God’s Divine Spiritual GRAIN and BREAD in Heaven will come pouring out onto our spiritually starving WORLD of 2009 Anno Domini.

    Tell the Church’s “Pharoah” that you all want something GOOD TO EAT from GOD THE FATHER.

    E-mail the Church’s “Pharoah” here

    So God the Father has to find A REPLACEMENT for this ungrateful, malicious, treachous ‘LUCIFER/LIGHT BEARER’ who has BETRAYED both God the Father as well as His SPIRITUAL CHILDREN here on earth - that is to say - the Human Race - MANKIND!

    And God the Father does EXACTLY THAT! And who is selected to REPLACE this once high, lofty, ethereal, grandiose created ELEMENTAL spirit known by the name of “Lucifer the Great”?

    A lowly member of the same Human Race that Lucifer has BETRAYED!

    This lowly member of the same Human Race that Lucifer has BETRAYED will not become God’s Own ‘PRISM’ who will obtain God’s Divine Light and DISEMINATE that same Divine Light to the people of our World.

    ‘The Divine Prism’ handed to a lowly member of our Human Race:

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=exodus%2028-15-21;&version=31;

    That ‘Divine Prism’ handed to a lowly member of our Human Race looked like THIS:

    Sorry about the typos…I’m tired.

    The ‘Divine Prism’ conferred up a lowly human being of the Human Race betrayed by the ‘Light Bearer’, “Lucifer the Once-Great”

    http://www.hebrew4christians.net/Glossary/choshen-ephod.jpg

    The Divine Instructions given by GOD THE FATHER to our Human Race in order to make a MATERIAL-PHYSICAL manifestation of God’s Spiritual ‘Divine Prism’

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=exodus%2028:15-21;&version=31;

    Let’s see if those work!

    - Fr. Joseph

  142. Fr. Joseph August 6, 2009 @ 8:52 am

    The GEMSTONES in this material-physical ‘Divine Prism’ consist of BLACK and WHITE and the others closely represent the primary colors of PURE light - from Ultraviolet down to Infrared.

    Now then, do simply chemical elements of these GEMSTONES convey ‘Spiritual Knowledge and Light’ into and onto a human being?

    But of course not!

    So the one who was appointed TO WEAR this Breatplace, this Ephod, was appointed to receive Spiritual Knowledge and Light from GOD HIMSELF spiritually.

    And HOW? does God Himself convey His Divine Knowledge, His Divine Light and His Divine Will onto a large segment of the Human Race via a selected individual?

    BY CONVEYING DIVINE THOUGHTS/IDEAS/DESIRES TO THAT APPOINTED PERSON VIA HIS OWN HOLY SPIRIT!

    - Fr. Joseph

  143. Fr. Joseph August 6, 2009 @ 9:38 am

    The Most Gentle Holy Spirit “flashed” the following thought-image to me in order to share with ALL OF YOU with regards to what I’ve just relayed to ALL OF YOU about:
    1) Lucifer;

    2) God’s Divine Light and Divine Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom;

    3) God the Father’s Divine Desire to have DIVINE BOX LUNCHES served to ALL OF YOU when you are on ‘recess’ from your daily living life and mastering living life classes here on earth;

    4) Lucifer having THROWN AWAY all of those Divine Box Lunches your God and Father in Heaven WANTS FOR ALL OF YOU TO HAVE daily and even hourly for some of you; and,

    5) God selecting a lowly human being TO REPLACE Lucifer as being God the Father’s Own ‘Light Bearer’ of DIVINE BOXED LUNCHES for all of you.

    About the EPHOD and the GEMSTONES in the HIGH PRIEST’S BREATPLATE as a material and physical identification of that person being the focal point in obtaining and diseminating God’s Divine Light via this human appointed ‘Divine Prism’…

    In order that EVERYONE follows along and is NOT ‘left behind in class’, we all have to understand that the directions to create a material ‘Divine Prism’ so as to have it appointed to a member of our Human Race in order to tranform that lowly human being into a REPLACEMENT for the now-defunct LUCIFER as the ‘Light Bearer’ of God the Father to His spiritual children here on earth who live, move and have their being AS body-endowed spirits, that is to say INCARNATE spirits as opposed to ELEMENTAL spirits such a Lucifer and his fallen angels
    were given to MOSES!

    And it was MOSES who wrote down those INSTRUCTIONS into human language for others TO READ as well as TO FOLLOW.

    Now consider what Exodus has to say about MOSES - the same MOSES who relays God’s Instructions for the Pectoral EPHOD to be crafted and worn by their High Priest here:

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus%2034:28-35;&version=31;

    MOSES speaks to God ‘face-to-Face’. And such human-to-God encounters and meetings renders MOSES’ OWN FACE and continence TO GLOW with the residual DIVINE LIGHT that radiates eternally from God’s Own Divine BEING and His Own Divine NATURE.

    And that Divine Light which radiated from Moses who just so happened to converse with God ‘face-to-Face’ TERRIFIED the people who God the Father WANTED TO provide the Divine Boxed Lunches that LUCIFER threw away in the garbage dumpsters!

    MOSES had to wear A VEIL over his Divinely Radiated face!

    So GOD THE FATHER has to resort of making a ‘DIVINE PRISM’ out of inert lifeless chemical composites we all know as GEMSTONES!

    Now I HOPE everyone is with me in this on-line religious ‘Catechism Class’ of my private meditations going on here on RZN.

    - Fr. Joseph

  144. Fr. Joseph August 7, 2009 @ 7:47 am

    Have to finish here what I’ve started…

    It was MOSES who at Mount Sinai is called into the immediate Divine and Spiritual Presence of God,

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus%2019:1-25;&version=31;

    And the ‘THEOPHANY’ of God on Mt. Sinai results in the ‘DECALOGUE’ which reveals God’s Own Expressed Divine Will for ALL members of the Human Race,

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus%2020:1-17;&version=31;

    and in order to CONFIRM what God has revealed to Moses, God ’seals’ His Message to Moses with awe-inspiring ‘Natural Miracles’

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus%2020:18-21;&version=31;

    in a similar manner in which God CONFIRMED the Messages and Instructions given to the people of the world back in 1917 A.D. via private revelations of His Mother as Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal via the ‘Natural Miracle’ of the ‘dancing and plunging to earth’ Sun.

    - Fr. Joseph

  145. Fr. Joseph August 7, 2009 @ 7:55 am

    So MOSES who speaks to God ‘face-to-Face’ tells the people to fabricate the EPHOD and that this EPHOD is to be worn by their High Priest to and for this same GOD who speaks to MOSES ‘face-to-Face’.

    With the people recognizing an appointed leader for them AFTER Moses leaves their company via the priestly garments and EPHOD, they are expected to turn to the high priest who will then don the EPHOD in order to obtain Guidance and Instruction from God via His Holy Spirit.

    Now God is very much DISPLEASED with these people He has retrieved from the economic, political and, yes RELIGIOUS-SPIRITUAL bondage imposed on them in Egypt via their religious beliefs and spiritual practices, on account of their desire to RETURN TO EGYPT and their ‘worshipping’ a stupid self-made golden calf after God having made so many Supernatural manifestations and miracles for them to witness/see with their own two eyes.

    As ‘PENANCE’ for their collective SIN in making an idol of their own choosing and worshipping it nonetheless, they are now to offer up a DAILY SACRIFICE of all sorts of ANIMALS - day in, day out, year in, year out - as a individual and collective reminder that they will never, never, never again ‘worship ANIMALS’ or worship ‘images of ANIMALS’!

    - Fr. Joseph

  146. Fr. Joseph August 7, 2009 @ 8:05 am

    During the course of their religious and spiritual education and instruction as a ‘Chosen People’ who God DESIRES to use as a ‘nation of priests’ in order to TEACH THE REST OF MANKIND all about the One, True God and His Divine Will for the entire Human Race, they wind up building and consecrating A TEMPLE to the One, True God.

    The central feature of this Temple and its focal point is what was called ‘The Holy Of Holies’.

    I forget the exact measurements, but ‘The Holy Of Holies’ was something like 50 feet wide, 50 feet deep and 90 feet tall. It was a very large cavernous structure enclosed on by the roof and three vertical walls.

    Where the ‘fourth wall’ should have gone, there hung from the top of the ceiling and down to the floor two large curtains.

    One curtain extended from the left wall across to the right wall and was maybe 5 or 6 feet shy of actually reaching the right wall.

    The other curtain was set back from this first curtain maybe 5-6 feet and extended from the right wall across to the left wall and was maybe 5 or 6 feet shy of actually reaching the left wall.

    Once a year, the ‘Chosen People’s high priest bedecked in his priestly garb and EPHOD would entire ‘The Holy Of Holies’.

    He would enter to the right where the outer curtain did not meet the right wall, make a left hand turn, walk down the entire length of BOTH curtains until he reached the left wall, make a right turn and there step into the ABSOLUTE PITCH-BLACK DARKNESS of the cavernous enclosed room known as ‘The Holy Of Holies’.

    - Fr. Joseph

  147. Fr. Joseph August 7, 2009 @ 8:17 am

    Now the ‘Chosen People’s’ high priest fully aware he is wearing THE EPHOD along with his priestly garb which is to be a constant physical reminder weighing upon his shoulders and pressing against his heart and chest as he entires this absolutely PITCH-BLACK cavernous room of ‘The Holy Of Holies’ is being DEPRIVED OF and is being INSULATED FROM all of the bodily-physical senses of his own God-given human BODY that is ‘outside’ of this PITCH-BLACK cavernous room

    The high priest has his bodily-physical SIGHT removed, his HEARING what is going outside, he cannot TASTE or SMELL anything and he most definitely cannot FEEL anything other than THE EPHOD pulling down on his shoulders and relentlessly pressing against his heart and his chest.

    The high priest of the ‘Chosen People’ is thus rendered to experience and recognize HIS SPIRIT - the FACT that he simply EXISTS - the FACT he is really and truly a LIVING being who actually has a LIFE.

    And this acute deprivation of his physical body’s senses of sight, sound, taste, touch, smell coupled with the acute sene of his very own self contained in what must have seemed to him as a ‘Infinite Space’ with no ending, no physical discernable dimensions or directions was meant to have the SPIRITUAL EFFECT on the Ephod wearing high priest of the ‘Chosen People’ that it is God’s Spirit and OUR human spirit created in His Image and Likeness which is the ACTUAL SOURCE of our life here on planet earth!

    And that OUR spirits are capable of becoming acutely aware of things such as our thought processes, our emotions, our ability to wonder and our ability TO DARE to ask an All-knowing and Unseen God QUESTIONS.

    These sorts of things regarding our human nature with an eye to our spiritual lives in and with God were meant to be personally experienced by the ‘Chosen People’s’ high priest - and because he wore THE EPHOD and because he was the RECOGNIZED spiritual leader placed in charge by Moses over the ‘Chosen People’ - it was expected that the ‘Chosen People’s’ high priest would SHARE and TEACH these things to others - to other priests as well as to the common folk, the ‘laity’ of God’s ‘Chosen People’.

    JESUS Himself had to affirm these Spiritual Truths to God’s ‘Chosen People’ when He told them:

    “It is THE SPIRIT that gives life” and instructed the ‘common folk’ to MIMICK what the ‘Chosen People’s’ high priest would ritually DO every year by telling them to “Go into YOUR CLOSET and pray. And God Who sees all that is done in SECRET will reward you.”

    The common folk of Jesus’ day had THEIR OWN PERSONAL place they, too, could call their own ‘Holy Of Holies’!

    Their own CLOSETS at home wherein they, too, could find REFUGE from all the bodily sense inputs processed 24/7 by their own PHYSICAL bodies for a while so as in order to pay close and SINCERE attention to what was going on WITHIN their own unseen ’selves’ which IS their God-given SPIRIT granted to all of them by the God of Life, their FATHER in Heaven Who just so happened to ‘conceive’ of them all in His Divine Thoughts - Divine Thoughts of them He so much LOVED that He used His Divine Powers of Omnipotence in order TO WILL them all into existance and being SO THAT they might ALL live with Him forever in His Divine Paradise of HEAVEN.

    Okay, I’m tired and I want to go to sleep. Gotta get up again in about 6 hours to go back to another night’s worth of work.

    So relying on the Divine Grace and Light of God the Holy Spirit to help enlighten all of your minds and ignite some size of a FLAME in your hearts stirring you to ‘Fall Madly In Love With God’ so that YOUR spirit and HIS Divine Spirit are ‘married’ thus ensuring that both you and He ENJOY each other in the ensuring ‘Honeymoon’ of spirit-to-Spirit DIVINE INTIMACY, let me offer this ‘Review’ of this on-line religious and spiritual ‘Catechism Lesson’ for all of you:

    1) God the Father LOVED His Divine Thought of you SO MUCH that He actually used His Divine and Almighty Powers as the Creator of ALL that is seen and Unseen TO WILL YOU into existance, to grant you your personal ‘beings’ SO THAT you might have LIFE and live your LIFE to the Absolutely Fullest.

    2) God’s created Divine ‘instructor’ to all of you in matters regarding your spiritual lives and God your Father Himself chose to NOT DELIVER YOUR SPIRITUAL ‘BOXED LUNCHES’.

    3) He was summarily removed from your Father in Heaven’s Divine Service and your Father in Heaven sought to provide you with a Lucifer’s ‘replacement’.

    4) MOSES winds up getting to talk to and with God ‘face-to-Face’ and receives from God all sorts of INSTRUCTIONS as to how to live our lives AS WELL AS all sorts of outward manifestations (Ephod, Temple, etc) to assist the Human Race in its living the God-given spiritual life God intends for all of Mankind.

    5) Moses tells the people that their God is going to send them another PROPHET much like himself to CONTINUE ON in their spiritual ‘high school studies’, then their ‘college studies’ and then even their POST-GRADUATE STUDIES.

    7) Moses face RADIATED from being in God’s presence.

    8) JESUS CHRIST’s entire BEING is Transfigured into Sublime Divine Brillance in order to prove that He was the One Who was INSTRUCTING Moses centuries earlier.

    9) Christ Jesus ‘leaves behind’ Divinely Instituted MATERIAL ‘touchy-feely’ physical objects and subjects whereby He Himself PROMISES to grant and infuse Divine Help and Spiritual Assistance to ALL OF MANKIND in their quest-desire to entire into spiritual Divine Intimacy with Him.

    Those material-physical ‘things’ are His Apostolic Church’s SACRAMENTS of Baptism, Confession, Confirmation/Chrismation, the Eucharist, Marriage, Holy Orders, Anointing of the Sick - AS WELL AS - all of the other ’sacramentals’ His Church has available to all peoples throughout the entire world e.g. Scapulars, Rosaries, Medals, Icons, Statues, etc.

    It simply boils down to an individual or the people of any nation’s FREE WILL!

    Does a person or those group of people WANT an All-good Life Giving God in their lives, or NOT?

    “I find that God made man SIMPLE; mankind’s complex problems are of his own devising.”

    This article more than proves that the Jews own the USA. It was informative to learn that not all that call themselves “rabbi” are well-educated, as are all that are ordained to be Catholic priests.

    Keep it up, dearest brother. I now know that Sephardic Jews cannot be thought of as morally superior to Ashkenazi Jews. Bloodsuckers who traffic in organ trading should get LIFE, not just a few years in prison.

    “Rabbi Israel Dwek, the spiritual leader of the Sephardic Jewish community in the wealthy Monmouth County suburb of Deal, took to his pulpit on Saturday to cite the Talmudic Law of Moser that prohibits a Jew from informing on another Jew to a non-Jew.

    Rabbi Dwek then renounced his son, Solomon Dwek, the failed real estate developer whose 2006 indictment on bank fraud charges motivated him to cooperate with federal prosecutors in a sting operation that led to the arrests of 44 individuals on Thursday. The group included three mayors, two state legislators, a multitude of local officials, and several Rabbis.

    As explained to PolitickerNJ.com, Rabbi Dwek will sit Shiva for Solomon Dwek, observing the Jewish custom of mourning for an immediate family member who has died.”

    http://www.politickernj.com/wallye/31782/rabbi-denounces-son-accused-being-fed-informant

    What Rabbi Israel Dwek did reveals the true nature of Jewish religion.

    By wanting his son to keep quiet about the ugly stuff with human organs etc. the Rabbi Israel Dwek actually approved the crimes committed by his colleagues, the other rabbis. What kind of religion covers up crimes, lies, killings?

    Maybe here our brother Abe could give an honest answer before calling us “haters”.

    In a Russian newspaper I read that some of the associates of our NJ/NYC rabbis live in Israel and Switzerland. I hope the police will arrest them soon.

    Lots of Love,

    I came across this article today about Israeli organ trafficking theft:

    In her Forum 13 lecture Scheper-Hughes discussed the two motivations of Israeli traffickers. One was greed, she said. The other was somewhat chilling: “Revenge, restitution – reparation for the Holocaust.”

    She described speaking with Israeli brokers who told her “it’s kind of ‘an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. We’re going to get every single kidney and liver and heart that we can. The world owes it to us.’”

    Scheper-Hughes says that she “even heard doctors saying that.”
