Archimandrite Nektarios Moulatsiotis – “Let us prepare for the last war against Christianity!”

This is a google translation of the following article:

Homily held in Holy Monastery of Saints Augustine and Seraphim of Sarov, February 23, 2013:

I believe that the subject of the throne of Rome and the Pope resignation is a sign of events which, as we get informed sooner and inform our other brothers as well, will help understand what is happening today with humanity. I don’t believe that the Pope’s resignation is random.

Many talk about conspiracies and scandals that made ​​him resign. I am interested in something else, namely that this pope was elected in 2005 and remained until 2013, only eight years, these years he considered important since the fourteenth century no other pope has resigned. Would this be happening by chance? I don’t think this is a coincidence …

I will try, as we did in Chapter XIII of Revelation – which speaks for first beast that rises from the sea and which is called Leviathan (as they call prophecies of the Old Testament) – I commented on this beast and I “sewed” a costume for her that I tried to “dress” over events of our time – and you are the ones who will judge whether this suit fits our time or not further events will show if our interpretation is correct or not.

Our discussion of the first beast took place a year or two ago, if I remember correctly, … where we saw this beast out of the sea that had 10 horns that give power (see power horn). Scripture itself tells us that the 10 horns are 10 kings, not kingdoms, but kings have power: they control. The truth is that today those that command the prime ministers and heads of state – which represent kingdoms – are bankers – 10 in number, the most powerful, have one common will, and (as Venizelos said) we are forced to obey the decisions they impose (these 10 kings). Greece has already signed three memorandums that we can not break. These kings are located in the Switzerland and see how they control all nations by debt. They lend money to states around the world in exchange for conditions that are found in memos they sign.

The Beast is called Leviathan. Could it coincidence that the new natural gas deposits were discovered in territorial waters of Cyprus, were called by the Jews Leviathan? Beast out of the sea, which give the companies extracting oil, behind which, if you look, you will find Rockefeller and the 10 bankers. They govern nations and command what happens in the world. They also give orders that suddenly find that bonds issued by Spain and Greece are worthless: they have power to devalue, to raise and lower the stock. They have such power that if a government does not obey their command, to bankrupt and destroy entire states. They decide what your salary will have, how old you can be to work, when you retire, they decide all these and impose it to governments to follow. We can see that in Greece, the Greek government has no decision power, it is the Troika that makes all the decisions as a representative of these banks, and what we do contrary to them is unacceptable. Therefore who really governs: us or the banks? Summarizing, we say that these bankers have the power of kings, without being kings, and can decide on the fate of countries without being their legitimate leaders … and have a common view.

I will read in chapter 17 of Revelation to remind you exactly what it says:

“12. And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet taken the kingdom, but who will take possession of kings one hour with the beast.

13. These have one mind, and give their power and strength unto the beast. ”

14. They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them, for that is Lord of lords and King of kings, and will prevail and those with him – called and chosen and faithful. ”

They will make war against Christians. Why will they start this war? Because they are the ones who have the power to impose marks on people’s hands and foreheads. They may decide that, in order to prevent tax evasion, money will cease to exist in their physical form and exist only in electronic form on cards. But because the card may be lost, banks have the right to change the rules by which the economic activity occurs, and can specifically require that the money be not on cards any more, but directly on our hands. If you want to buy, manage your money, get your pension and salary, you put a seal on hand. What does the Revelation say:

“And it forces them all, both small and great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, to put the mark on their right hand or forehead”.

The beast will take all the power and will order banks to impose this way of managing money for both people and governments. It will not be difficult. See how things have changed in Greece and in all nations. I believe that this is the first beast, which is called Leviathan and that comes from the sea, which has 10 horns and seven heads. The horns are nothing but the 10 bankers who are kings without a kingdom and leading worldwide including our country.

This “suit I made” 2 years ago (meaning this vision was shared 2 years ago). Now, with the pope’s resignation, I come to “make another suit”.

We see in chapter XII (and generally in Revelation) we are talking about two women.

One of them:

“And appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun and the moon was under her feet and wear the crown of twelve stars p”.

The sun is Christ, the moon is sinful, fallen nature, and the 12 stars are the twelve apostles.

Second woman:

“This is a great dragon, red, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems.”

Beware: This beast has seven heads bearing crowns. I will explain further. The other beast’s heads doesn’t have crowns, but the crowns are on the horns instead of the heads, which means the heads do not lead any more – because they do not wear crowns – but the horns do. Horns are the 10 banks that are empowered to rule.

This is about a woman and beside her we see the beast, one with 7 heads and 10 horns.

“And his tail dragging a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman which was to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon to be born ”

… this is the first woman clothed in the sun, it is The True Church

Let’s go back to the other beast, the one I described earlier in Chapter XIII.

“And I beheld a beast out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads: name of blasphemy.”

Looks like there are crowns on its horns, not on the heads as in Chapter XII. I think this is the same beast, it is not different: it has 7 heads and 10 horns.

And what does it say next? Here in chapter 17 it says:

“I saw a woman sitting on a red beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”

Here he sees another woman sitting … ,this other woman, as the Holy Fathers say, symbolizes the Church, is clothed with the sun, stepping on moon (the sins), and carries on her head a crown of the 12 Apostles. This is The One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, The Orthodox Church. But here we see another woman sitting on a red beast – that beast came from the sea, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. It does not say anything about crowns, we are not told where crowns are. Why? We will see … because power will given to the Beast.

Therefore there are two women. One of them is The True Church of Christ, clothed with the sun. What does the other woman really represent? The one who sits on the beast, full of names of blasphemy, heresy, and “with whom the kings of the earth have fornicated?” All the kings were passed on to the woman and greeted her, saw her … But who is this woman?

“Was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.”

This cup is not Christ’s Body and Blood as like the other women’s. So here we are talking about another church that is dressed in red … How do cardinals dress? In red. And the pope comes with a dress of crimson scarlet cloaks adorned with precious stones, as Revelation says. So this woman sits on the beast, the devil and all the kings of the earth have passed by. Who dares to confront the Pope? Even our politicians, before being elected, we see them going to the Vatican. Why do politician do this?

“And on her forehead a name written mystery: Babylon the great, mother of harlots and abominations of the earth”.

And the angel asks, “Why do you wonder, John?” I’ll tell you the mystery of the woman … because John had already understood that the first woman represents the true Church of Christ.

“I’ll tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.”

Listen John!

“The beast that you saw was and is not and will to rise from the bottomless pit and go to perdition.”

The beast that you saw “was” the devil and now it is not. Why not any longer? Because John sees the era after Christ’s resurrection when Satan was bound. Following the Crucifixion and Resurrection devil was bound. And what does the Scriptures say? It will be let free for a short period before the end, to appear again. Until then (the end) the beast will have no power over the Christians unless we, through our sins, will again give it again this power, by the appearance of Antichrist. Therefore, at some point “it will rise from the depths”, and then forever will “go to perdition”.

“And it will surprise those who dwell on the earth whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, seeing the beast that was and is not, but it will show.”

“You should mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains above which the woman sits.”

Behold the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, this church full of names of blasphemy, with the cup full of uncleanness. This woman sits in a city situated on 7 hills. What city is situated on seven hills? The Holy Fathers say that it is Rome, the city of 7 hills. Therefore there are not only 7 mountains, but there are also seven heads and seven kings – “But there are seven kings.” There are mountains and kings, and both.

And what does John see? He sees a certain age, namely he sees kings of whom “five are fallen” … John sees the period from around year 2000. You’ll ask me where I drew this conclusion … If the suit is well cut, he sees around year 2000. Not before. You’ll understand where I get this:

“Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while.”

Five have fallen, the sixth still leads, the seventh has not come yet, but when he will stay for a little while in the city of Rome – which is the woman in red.

Now go back to historical events: When did Vatican become kingdom, so the Vatican popes are in fact kings and wear crowns on their heads and stand on the royal throne? When was the Vatican State founded? I took official data from the Vatican’s website: Vatican became an independent state on 11 February 1929. Therefore the state before then had no leader. It was only the Pope. It wasn’t a kingdom. It became a Kingdom in 1929 (so they says their official website). The same Vatican official website is also telling us which were the popes since ’29 until today:

1. Until 1939 – Pope Pius XI

2. 1939-1958 – Pope Pius XII

3. John XXIII

4. From ’63 – Paul VI

5. John Paul I

6. From 78-2005 – John Paul II – whose repose we witnessed

The sixth was John Paul II. Five have fallen, the sixth I see, is alive, it is John Paul II.

And what he says about the seventh?

“And when he comes he will stay for only a little while.”

So when he comes, will not stay long, but will leave shortly. And here came Benedict who stayed very little and then resigned. When did he resign? A few days ago, on February 11 – the day the Vatican State was established on! Can it really be happening?

Let’s see what he says next. We are now talking about the eight king:

“And the beast which was and is not – is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition” (Revelation 17:11).

This is the eighth beast that was and is not.

“And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet taken the kingdom, but who will take possession of kings one hour with the beast” (Revelation 17:12).

The 10 horns are the 10 bankers who have not yet taken the kingdom and who “have one mind, and give their power and strength unto the beast” (Revelation 17:13), that is the Pope.

Have you heard the latest statements of the Vatican? Mussolini gave the Vatican billions to make their own bank. This bank is independent, it can always print money. The Vatican has just announced plans to join with the banks that lend to countries of the world. To unite with them in some way.

Even a cardinal candidate for the role of Pope says that this must happen quickly in order to be in step with the events that take place globally and to create a world economic system. We should remind you what Pope Benedict said last year [in 2011 in fact, note] that mankind should go to a world government, and introduced in Vatican electronic access card (chip).

“They have one mind, and give their power and strength unto the beast.”

What the 10 think will be in line with the thinking of the eighth leader and will give the beast their power.

“They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them, for that is Lord of lords and King of kings, and will prevail and those with him – called and chosen and faithful” (Revelation 17:14).

“The waters which you saw, and above which the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

And the ten horns that you saw and the beast will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and shall eat flesh and will burn her with fire. “(Revelation 17:15,16)

The 10 horns will eventually turn against papists power.

Benedict, in the last book he wrote, says that not the Jews are responsible for the crucifixion of Christ. The seventh pope, who stayed for a short while and who often spoke of the need of a world government, he considers the Jews guiltless. Therefore the harlot, finally, the 10 horns will completely destroy her. Why destroy her? Because they will not need her any longer. They will take power. The beast will not need her.

“And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 17:18).

We know that the pope has influence over all kings of the earth.

Therefore, does the Pope’s resignation have anything to do with Chapter 17 in the Apocalypse?
Does “The costume that I sewed” fit what happens today? I am not to decide, you are the ones who will decide if it fits.

There are two women: one is the true Church of Christ and the other woman, who sits on the beast and wages war against the True Church. And we know very well from history how much the Orthodox people suffered at the hands of the papists. The reason we lost Constantinople, Asia Minor, Alexandria, Jerusalem is because of this “dirty woman”, harlot, called the Latin Church. The Latins are to blame for what happened during the Crusades when we lost Asia Minor and Constantinople. They fought with the true Church of Christ. Therefore they are the beast.

As often seems the eighth pope is the Antichrist himself – an option – or is the False Prophet who will enthrone the Antichrist.

Therefore we are in front of decisive events. During Chapter 13 you may recall that John saw another beast – not one that rises from the sea:

“And I saw another beast rising out of the earth, and he had two horns like lamb, but he spoke like a dragon,

“And the dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. And makes the earth, and the inhabitants of him to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. ”

The second beast had two horns, looks like a lamb, but speaks like a dragon. So it is the wolf in sheep’s clothing. And it says it uses all the power of the first beast. Holy Saints interpret this as being the religious and political power, combined into the institution of Papacy. And indeed the Vatican became a state in 1929. Therefore the pope has two powers. Why do I say that John was having his revelation around the year 2000?

John says that this beast causes people to worship the first beast, that is the devil. Accept bankers plan to accept the seal.

“And he does great signs, that even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

And deceives them all that dwell on the earth by the signs and were given to do before the beast, saying to those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and is alive.

And given them to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should also speak unto and to kill as many as would not worship the image of the beast ”

And we see the events that will follow what all these things, because the events now taking place before our eyes very quickly. You are the ones who will decide if this costume I see him in the papal resignation is correct or not. If the Vatican will unite with the 10 bankers, events will take place very quickly. And immediately begin war against Christians. I mean everything will undermine Christianity. They will require everyone to put on the seal. Christians will be persecuted against.

What comes next will show if what John saw in chapter 17 of Revelation was about the fall of Vatican, Rome Benedict and the Latin Church. Whether the eighth Pope is the Antichrist or not [can not be, since the prophecies of the Holy Fathers say he will be a Jew, not a Pope] or False Prophet. Revelation reveals itself slowly …

If my interpretation is correct, then we need to prepare ourselves spiritually because then the events against Christianity, of all of us, will take place very quickly and spiritually we must be able to meet this situation. But we must not despair or lose courage because John says that the Lamb will overcome eventually. It will be like this: Christians will win and will follow Christ. Amen!
