God Will Not Be Mocked: The Dimond Brothers

"If there is a prophet among you, I, the Lord, make Myself known to him in a vision, and I speak to him in a dream” - Numbers 12:6

There are a vast number of religious “cybernaut” sheep out there who sincerely believe that Mr Joseph A. Natale (a.k.a. Brother Joseph: 1993-1995), the founder of a New Jersey tax exempt “religious” not-for-profit secular business entity named the Queen of Angels Corporation (which later, in 1993, under New Jersey law, was renamed the Most Holy Family Monastery - MHFM); met the requirements stipulated in Numbers 12:6 above; and therefore must have been a “bona fide” latter day prophet of God?

These individuals, for lack of a better explanation, seem to have gotten themselves caught in the alluring snare of deceit set by the charismatic “sheep rustlers” Frederick Dimond (a.k.a. Brother Michael - the self-proclaimed /self-anointed Superior of the MHFM today) and his dogma slinging sidekick and sibling Robert Dimond (a.k.a. Brother Peter); who proclaim on their website:

It’s also a fact that many years ago Bro. Joseph said he was told by God that our monastery would be ‘the only beacon light of Catholicism left before the end of the world’ and ‘the forerunner of Christ’s Second Coming.’ He also said we would be the last Catholic religious order in the world. It’s simply a fact that he made these predictions. I heard them myself and he told many others decades ago.

Obviously, as can be seen from the financial success that the Dimond’s fraudulent cyber-ministry enjoys; playing the “prophet card” was a brilliant marketing strategy to bait the “lambs of God” with.

In making the empty / prestigious claim that Brother Joseph spoke directly with God and was chosen by “divine vocation” to be lead the “scattered flock” into the last “true” remnant Church of Christ on earth; the Dimond Brothers have masterfully succeeded in luring a multitude of unsuspecting and trusting “sheep” (i.e. those susceptible to believe such protestant-like utter nonsense) into voluntarily climbing onboard the Dimond Brother’s Ark” (metaphorically speaking); promising them shelter / refuge from the approaching apocalyptic storm referred to in the book of Revelations.

All I can say in response to such lunacy is … “And Jesus wept.” – St John 11:35

Wake up my brothers and sisters in Christ… trust not in the empty and vainglorious promises of un-professed, un-ordained, excommunicated laymen!

The Dimond Brothers are NOT commissioned Shepherds of Christ’s flock but rather “sheep rustlers” and/or miscreant “pied pipers” skillfully playing a hypnotic tune that sooths and lures disgruntled “lambs of God”, not secure in their Catholic faith, into apostasy, heresy and schism.

Do not be deceived by false teachers, false prophets … the “un-anointed”. Do not abandon the Church and join ranks with those who claim to possess the “authority” to preach and teach but are themselves outside the ranks of the “ordained priesthood”. Do not trust those who profess to be “angels of light”; who proclaim that they can guarantee your salvation. For these recreant pastors do NOT serve our Lord and Savior; but rather they’re “religious carpetbaggers” employed by the “Father of Lies” in his despicable latter day “business of religion”. These men are merely out to “insure” your salvation (one donation at a time).

"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds." - 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.

Don’t be deceived by those who bid you welcome, who solicit for your financial support an promise, in exchange, to provide you with sanctuary / refuge; while they themselves are “lost” in the darkness of schism; cast outside of the light of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. As that Church is the ONLY that was established, by Christ Himself, to provide the “faithful” with divine care, shelter and salvation and NOT Joseph Natale’s and/or the Dimond Brothers self-identified Order of St Benedict.

"For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." - Romans 1:22

Was Mr Joseph A. Natale a Prophet of God? Let’s look at Deuteronomy 18:20-22 and see:

"[20] But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. [21] And if thou say in thine heart, how shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken? [22] When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath NOT spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt NOT be afraid of him."

Now let’s note but a few of Brother Joseph’s preposterous claims of his …

  • Being a latter day prophet;

  • Being called by God, in a vision, to establish and lead the last “true” remnant Catholic (non-sedevacantist) religious order / church in the world;

  • Being a Benedictine Superior;

  • Being one of the two witnesses spoken of in Revelations 11:3;

  • Being promised by God that he would witness the end of the world and the second coming of Christ that he professed, like Fr. Nicholas Gruner, would come in March of 1999 (a month of two moons)

All the above mentioned claims made by Brother Joseph are in fact dubious to say the very least and/or outright bogus, if one but has the courage to face reality and accept the truth.

Joseph A. Natale’s expressed delusions had no prophetic legitimacy whatsoever as none of them were proven to have ever come to pass. And the Dimond Brothers, to date, have not had the common ecclesiastic courtesy to set the record straight on that and other related issues. Their obstinate silence on the Prophet Joseph’s life, his works and his prophecies, speaks louder than any words they could possibly write and place on their website or present orally in a YouTube video; for all the “scattered flock” to behold and marvel at.

Is it safe to go out on a limb (so-to-speak) and speculate that possibly Brother Joseph's unexpected death on November 11, 1995 may have actually been a sign, a fulfillment of the promise made to those who falsely claim to be a prophet of God (Deuteronomy 18:20)? Of course not … as that would be pure conjecture and anyone doing so would be a talebearer, right?

So, let’s just say as the scriptures state (Romans 6:23) that “… the wages of sin is death …” and simply suggest that it would appear that Mr Joseph A. Natale, a sinner, as we all are, was “righteously” paid in full; receiving his just reward (may God have mercy on his soul).

For 30+ years Brother Joseph successfully “stretched” the truth of his purported “divine vocation” to its outermost limit. It was wrong no matter what his actual intentions may have been.

"Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it. Right is right even if no one is doing it." - St. Augustine

But, in the end his passing can be used as a sign, for all those who have eyes to see, that God may have a sense of humor but He will not be mocked.

And now, 20+ years have come and gone since the false Prophet's demise and the Dimond Brothers took charge over Joseph’s “sheep rustler’s hideaway”; for that’s all the Most Holy Family Monastery – MHFM actually is. Whether located at the beginning in Berlin, New Jeresy (as a non-sedevacantist religious community) or today in Fillmore, New York (as a sedevacantist religious community) the MHFM cannot ever be legitimately referred to as an Order of St Benedictine and surely not as Christ’s last remnant Church on earth; as the Dimond Brothers so blasphemously claim.

God has indeed been patient with these brothers, as he was with Joseph for a time. And only He knows how much longer He is willing to tolerate their deceitful “cathilo-protestant” (new age) business of religion, and their deceitful religious masquerade.

It appears that the Dimond Brothers do no fear God nor take heed to His warning concerning what awaits those who lure the innocent “lambs of God” astray:

But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh.” – St Matthew 18:6-7

And to the faithful … to those parents, brothers and sisters, currently agonizing over the “loss” of a loved one who has fallen prey to these miscreants; you must continue to place your Trust in the Lord; never doubting for an instant as to whether your sincere heart-filled prayers have been heard or not; for they have. You must remain true to your faith and continue praying and accept in your heart that one day, if it be God’s will, your loved one will return to the Church and home to you. Put hatred aside and leave it to God to mete out justice.

Revenge not yourselves, my dearly beloved, but give place unto wrath, for it is written: Revenge is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.” – Romans 12:19

Thus, it is out of charity that I would like to admonish the Dimond Brother’s to repent from the sins associated with their continuation of Joseph’s folly (the MHFM) and to set free the “sheep”, they have rustled, indoctrinated and who are now spiritually confined, before it is too late; and the clock is ticking.

"Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows." - Galatians 6:7

And to those of you who blindly follow Frederick (a.k.a. Brother Michael) and Robert (a.k.a. Brother Peter) be warned and become aware… the ONLY book that the Dimond Brothers truly believe in and use is a “checkbook”.
