St Seraphim of Sarov about the chiliastic reign of the antichrist, anarchy (chaos) and communist revolutionaries …

“Before the birth of the Antichrist an Eighth Ecumenical Council must be convened of all the Churches under the One Head, Christ and under the one Protecting Veil of the Mother of God [according to St. Nilus the myrrh-gusher: “a last and eighth Ecumenical Council to deal with the disputes of heretics and separate the

The Spirit of Antichrist and the Forerunner of Antichrist

By Archbishop Averky http://archbishopaverky.blogspot.com.au/2011/02/spirit-of-antichrist-and-forerunner-of.html From the second chapter of St. Paul’s Second Epistle to the Thessalonians it is clear that the teaching about the Antichrist enters into the content of the earliest apostolic evangelization. After giving a description of the Antichrist in the third and fourth verses of that chapter, the holy Apostle writes further

All labor, every square inch of ground, every grain of wheat… A Prophecy from 15th Century

“Each person will be registered; not only every facet of his affairs and his life, but his every word, every movement of his mental faculties will be under constant surveillance so that he will lose the habit of thinking for himself out of fear that the expression on his face might involuntarily reflect something incompatible

Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol Stands for The Truth

In an open letter to the Synod of Cyprus, Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol points out some of the heresies that are to be adopted at the coming Pan Orthodox Synod of 2016. We hope and pray that others may take his example and come forth in this matter of utmost importance. Original article: http://www.pravoslavie.ru/english/90619.htm In

The Heretical Pan-Orthodox Synod of 2016

“Brothers at last”, it was proclaimed by Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill, after recently signing the Havana declaration. This marks the moment when it has become all clear. Patriarch Kirill has shown us what will be widely adopted at the coming “Holy” Pan-Orthodox Synod taking place between 19th and 27th of June 2016 – a

“The Resistance” and the False Unity

If the devil asked you to join him in exchange of his promise to help you defeat your enemy, would you do it? If you have seen the latest Star Wars episode, “The Force Awakens” you would be familiar by now with the new buzz word “The Resistance” and its meaning: the gathering of all forces

Jesus Christ Superstar – coming to the Holy Mountain

This is World Orthodoxy! This is how people like Jonathan Jackson and all those who are seeking an easy, worldy form of Orthodoxy, one that can accommodate both Hollywood and Mount Athos, are helping hijack True Orthodoxy. If Jonathan would have found True Orthodoxy, he would have left the show-biz industry long ago … How

A Thought on Ecumenism

Have you ever wondered what Ecumenism really is and what is its true nature? Let us try to answer the question this way: Communism means serving the Common Good. Likewise, a Spiritual form of Communism means serving the Common God, since the idea of “Good” and “Goodness” in the material world is perceived by many

The Prophecies of St Paisios of Mount Athos

If the Bishops are silent, then who will speak? What unsettles me is the reigning mood of tranquility. Something is in the works. We still haven’t understood properly either what’s going on, or the fact that we will die. I don’t know what will come of this. The situation is very complicated. The fate of

Gog – the prince of Magog

http://orthodoxeschatology.blogspot.com/2010/10/on-gog-and-magog.html About Gog and Magog, St. Andrew (of Caesarea) says: “Some people think that Gog and Magog are the northern and most remote Scythian peoples or, as we call them, Huns, the most militant and numerous peoples of the earth. They are restrained from taking possession of the whole world only by the Divine right hand

On the cusp of the biggest financial crisis in history

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/11805523/Doomsday-clock-for-global-market-crash-strikes-one-minute-to-midnight-as-central-banks-lose-control.html Every now and then the mainstream media warns us. Those following the financial news know this is close. The ever-increasing desperation in the markets, coupled with the more and more evident central banks panicked interventions to make everything appear normal cannot last much longer. This coming crisis is not ordinary, but one that will

Why Greece Matters

In previus articles we made a statement in which we linked the situation in Greece with the judgement America (and all those that fornicate with her) affirmed upon herself. Let us therefore say a few things about why we believe it to be so, and present some more evidence. Lets start with the evidence: The

Fleeing The Abomination of Desolation

The homosexual abomination is now unstoppable, coming to stand in the holy place of marriage everywhere, yet people are still hoping things can be reversed. Unfortunately things can’t be reversed and they will only go from bad to worse, for it is written: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass

Should Orthodox people prepare in the face of the impending danger?

How many times have you heard your local priest, bishop or any of their blind followers say about you or someone you know: “don’t listen to him, he is an extremist, he bought land to prepare for the end of the world”? Or have you heard an Orthodox priest or bishop say to your spouse:

“When the jews withdraw their money”

That is what we read, a few years ago, of how an Athonite Elder described the moment when the prophecies of Elder Paisios (and other Athonite elders) would start to unfold. He said that when this moment comes, most of Greece would become unemployed overnight. That day may be nigh. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-02-04/ecb-pulls-trigger-blocks-funding-greece For now, the ECB’s

BRICS and the worldwide Communist agenda

With Russia making decisive moves away from the dollar system and closer to full BRICS integration, it is time to take a quick look at what BRICS really is. The West-East chess game is nothing more than the fulfillment of the Zionist long established plan of creating a worldwide money crisis, moving away from the

The future of Russia !

Dear brethren in Christ, about a year ago we had 2 articles about the Future of Russia and the End of the World. The first one was a direct reference to Blessed Seraphim Rose’s lecture on the subject. http://orthodoxaustralia.org/2013/09/02/the-future-of-russia-and-the-end-of-the-world Then shortly after we made a few comments around it: http://orthodoxaustralia.org/2013/09/03/a-few-notes-on-blessed-seraphims-lecture-on-the-future-of-russia-and-the-end-of-the-world Today, when the prophecies we

Preparing Your Little Home Church …

The time is short before the final persecution of Christianity becomes widespread, and therefore it is important for Orthodox Christians to make preparations. Yes, it was good while the Church had the protection of a Christian Emperor, the last one being Tsar Nicholas II, but the absence of this protection does not mean the Church

BRICS and the Dragon of the Apocalypse

11. “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon”. 12. “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly

The Dragon of the Apocalypse

The last book of the Bible, St John’s Revelation (also known as the Apocalypse of St John), talks about unimaginable disasters to be occurring at the end of times. One of them has just happened in the Phillipines that was hit by the strongest typhoon ever recorded. What is the world we currently live in

A few notes on Blessed Seraphim’s lecture on “The future of Russia and the end of the world”

In our previous post we reproduced a lecture Blessed Seraphim Rose had on “The future of Russia and the end of the world”. Due to the importance of the subject, with fear of the Almighty God and with humility in our hearts we find appropriate to make a few comments on the subject: The article

The future of Russia and the end of the world

By Blessed Seraphim Rose http://www.sfaturiortodoxe.ro/orthodox/orthodox_advices_seraphim_rose_the_end_of_the_world.htm A Lecture given at the Youth Conference of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, San Francisco, August 3, 1981 by Blessed Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose) Every Orthodox Christian is placed between two worlds: this fallen world where we try to work out our salvation, and the other world, heaven, the

Remarkable text about Antichrist

THE AGE OF ANTICHRIST “The entire life and work of Antichrist can be summarized into three periods: 1. FIRST PERIOD of Antichrist – between his birthday and the moment of its revelation – will go unacknowledged. St. John of Damascus says that “Antichrist is grown in the hide and will unexpectedly uprise.” 2. THE SECOND

The Harlot of the Apocalypse

After seeing what the red beast of the Apocalypse was, let us turn our focus onto the harlot spoken about in Chapter 17. In verses 1 through 5 we are presented a very earthly woman, being seen “arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls”, which is a
