A Contemporary Orthodox World View

source (this is work in progress – i may update this post over the next period)
My dear friends, i am going to try to present what i would call “the big picture” (at least the way i see it), my Orthodox Worldview, trying to put some context around the events that have been happening in the world since the beginning of the 20th century. Since people can easily get lost in too many words i will try to be as succinct as possible.
We have all heard about communism and were all stricken with awe at the scale and cruelty it came down with to destroy the Church though the Bolshevik revolution in Russia of the early last century. The last bastion of pure Orthodoxy had fallen at that point and the Church has been greatly persecuted. By the providence of God, through Patriarch Tikhon’s decree (#362) ROCOR was formed outside communist Russia and the Church has been protected, very much in “wilderness” (as the apocalypse says), struggling to survive outside its homeland.
Rev 12:13-14 “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
After some 70 years of great persecution in her homeland, the comunist beast started to realise that what they were chasing has in fact escaped … what would the beast then think to itself? “Let’s stop this, the Mother and Child we have been trying to catch, they are not here, they fled!” (like Mother Mary and Jesus fled to Egypt where they were protected for a while).
So the red beast devises a plan to get the Church where it has fled … and in doing so it faked its own demise and tried to convince the world that the beast that had been, no longer was … isn’t it that everyone is saying that communism has officially died in 1989, but has it really?
Khrushchev allegedly once confessed saying this: “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”
Ever since the Reagan administration there were signs that attempts were being made to destroy the US economy by means of subversion. Just recently i pointed out some of the financial market regulations that were put in place back then and are still in place today that boggles one’s mind when looking at what is happening in America.
Slowly since the 70’s we see clear signs of efforts to undermine the American economy and financial system, starting with Nixon’s abandonment of the gold standard (the efforts go back much farther than that, to the early years of the 20th century and the creation of the Federal Reserve).
Slowly America has become what has become and it is what we see today, a nuclear bomb that when it goes off it will devastate the whole world. The current financial system and the reign of the dollar has only been maintained by war and threat of war, but we can now confidently say that what Khrushchev said would happen in fact has happened. America and the West have fallen to communism big time, and the Church has been trapped once again, this time without any visible way out. Taking advantage of this weakness, agendas like that one seen in Crete could be passed since there is no firm Orthodox voice to oppose it. With all the modern technology and spying capabilities they have nowadays they can now focus on the small pockets remaining and extinguish them out …
The communist agenda has officially become doctrine of the Orthodox Church (through the “Missions” document; we know that this document was added to the agenda of the synod held in Crete by the Soviet bishops and insisted that it stayed on by current ones), and has made its way up and has become UN’s new mandate, proclaimed by the Pope before the US congress and the whole world in Sep 2015. This agenda is known as Agenda 2030 (formerly known as Agenda 21) and is the same communist agenda disguised under slogans such as “sustainability”, “social justice” etc etc.
In their triumphant confidence the authorities in Russia today boldly proclaim communism is still their vision. Calls are being made to once again revisit the old ideas of Lenin and reconsider them in light of the value they present in the context of the modern world. Here is Mr Putin addressing his own political party recently:
“I have always liked communist and socialist ideas. If we consider the Code of the Builder of Communism that was widely published in the Soviet Union, it strongly resembles the Bible. This is not a joke; it was actually an excerpt from the Bible. It spoke of good things: equality, fraternity, happiness. However, the practical implementation of these ideals in this country had little in common with what the utopian socialists Saint-Simon or Owen spoke about. This country had little resemblance to their Sun City.”
“Finally, the main reason why I was saying that we need to take a fresh look at the ideas the former leader of the Soviet state Vladimir Lenin formulated. What were we talking about? I was saying that a bomb was planted at the foundation of our statehood. What did I mean by that? I will give you the details now. I was referring to the discussion between Stalin and Lenin regarding the creation of the new state, the Soviet Union.”
So we can see that the beast that was and was not, is still here, but with nobody able to oppose, it looks like they are on the last strech to have the ideals of communism preached to the whole world. How?
America will fail, it has been planed to fail, and to cause much economic destruction worldwide, so much that a revolution against the “rulling elite” (the deep state – and they will be seen as those who have brought this calamity upon the mankind) will be inevitable. Put on top of that all the abomination coming from the political class in the West (homosexuality, pedophilia, etc) and it is not hard to imagine that all forces of society and all religions will unite in one voice and ask that “someone deal with this and bring justice”.
Looking at the political circus in the US through this view, it becomes clear that the game is to totally and completely discredit and destroy whatever’s left of the West at the benefit of those at the other end, waiting with their solution ready. So this then begs the question, does what is happening in the US help whitewash the regime in Russia and portray them as the saviors from under the yoke of the West?
Some of the signs are even more troubling, it appears a “mandate” has been handed out. Consider that Mr Putin was recently anointed by the MP (through Metropolitan Hilarion) as the leader of the global Crusade against iniquity, and it was not just MP, also the pope did the same thing. If you examine closely his speaches, as well as those of Patriarch Kirill in recent times, they all only speak of the iniquities brought upon the world by the western Elite and how the mission of the Church is to help fight that …
“RT online reported that Metropolitan Hilarion, foreign relation chief of the Russian Orthodox Church presented evidence and statistics that stated, “Every five minutes one Christian was dying for his or her faith in some part of the word”. After delivering the facts, Metropolitan Hilarion asked Putin to make protection and defense of Christianity around the globe a major part of his foreign policy.”
I am sorry, but the mission of the Church is to eradicate SIN, not to eradicate poverty, not to save the Earth, not to fight climate change, nothing of these earthly ideals.
You can now see the role of America in the promotion of the new agenda: she needs to be sacrificed in order that justice be served. Trump and RussiaGate are nothing but means towards achieving the same goal, proving America bad and Putin good. Oh, and BTW, they will need to do something and fake an antichrist too, so when the real one appears (coming proposing all these goals to the whole of humanity) people will accept him as the Messiah …
I believe the destruction of America on the Altar of Social Gospel is even mentioned in the Apocalypse, for it says “they” will agree to sacrifice her for their cause and agree to “burn her with fire and eat her flesh”.
Rev 17:16-17 “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.”
I am implying here that “and give their kingdom unto the beast” means giving America to Communism
Another important thing to talk about is the doctrine of Liberation Theology. KGB invented it. In order to make sense of the following assertions, please read this article!
This is amazing, everything just falls into place … If you ever wondered where this was all coming from … Quote from the article above:
“This program demanded that the KGB take secret control of the World Council of Churches (WCC), based in Geneva, Switzerland, and use it as cover for converting Liberation Theology into a South American revolutionary tool. The WCC was the largest international ecumenical organization after the Vatican, representing some 550 million Christians of various denominations throughout 120 countries.The KGB began by building an intermediate international religious organization called the Christian Peace Conference (CPC), which was headquartered in Prague. Its main task was to bring the KGB-created Liberation Theology into the real world.”
Another evident element of the attempt to destroy the West is by pushing all the abominations the World has seen on the political agendas of the Western countries, as well as many of the Orthodox countries. Gay marriage and pedophilia are being legislated everywhere. Why? I believe it is to do with the agenda of a “common religion” and the “fight against iniquity”. There is simply not one religion in the world that does not see these issues as capital sins. So what do they say? “Let’s promote an agenda out there that creates an unimaginable common threat which can also serve as a catalyst for pushing our unity agenda – unity as a global social action against iniquity”. Liberation Theology applied.
Sadly, all i can observe right now is that the liberation theology moved from just Latin America and PLO to the whole of the west and the world. It has become a global phenomena. So rather than subsiding it is engulfing the whole world … the Elite (the Deep State) and the Illuminati are now the global threat to humanity! Check this out:
So, the conclusion so far as it appears to me, is the kingdom of Antichrist has 3 components.
1. Liberation Theology – create and promote the idea of a “common enemy” which is a threat to humanity, and which promotes iniquity and oppression all over the world
2. Social Gospel – preach a new doctrine of “social justice” denouncing the “common threat” and encourage social action towards the goal of “liberation”
3. Ecumenism – gather everyone in the fight against the perceived perpetrator of iniquity, preach the social gospel, and bring about the “liberator”
