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

The Sons of Man and The Sons of God

An article by Florin Stuparu, translated from Romanian, with a few annotations. Our note: We highly recommend this as a rare piece of ennobling literature that can really open the minds and hearts of the believers to the truth of Orthodoxy! http://saccsiv.wordpress.com/2014/11/07/florin-stuparu-despre-fii-lui-dumnezeu-despre-fiicele-oamenilor-despre-uriasi-si-despre-antihrist/ “The sons of God saw that the daughters of man were beautiful, and

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

“The beast that was, and is not, and yet is …”

We are going to begin by saying that our views are based entirely on Archimandrite Nektarios’ interpretation of the Apocalypse to which we subscribe entirely, and that this article is only intended to bring a little more clarification and understanding to what has already been said. In his commentary, Archimandrite Nektarios talks about the beast

Mark of the beast, collective sin and the disavowal of Christ

Every Christian today witnesses how homosexuality and abortion, amongst other things, are being legislated into every national parliament, including in their own country, but can hardly understand how this is going to affect them directly, and think that if they do not agree with it is all going to be OK for their salvation. There

“The Third Antichrist”

This continues our previous article: The Communist States Of America The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights

Fears About the End Times

An excellent Letter from Archbishop George and the Pastoral Conference of the Chisinau and Bolgrad Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, under the presidency of Metropolitan Agafangel, taken from the Remnant ROCOR blog.

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

This is a google translation of the following article: http://ortodoxia.md/articole-preluate/7043-arhimandritului-nectarie-moulatsiotis-sa-ne-pregatim-duhovniceste-pentru-ultimul-rzboi-impotriva-cretinilor 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
