Radu Blebea one of the key things, as highlighted by St Hermogenes, is it will not be apparent there will be a clash from a dogmatic point of view between Christian principles and the social laws during the reign of the Antichrist, and i believe there lies the key, as the deception will not be as to corrupt the dogma as much as it will be to corrupt the mission of the Church in a social way28.06.2017 at 11:33 am1
Radu Blebea Luke 11:42 (KJV)

"But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone."

A clear reference to how social and charitable activities should not become more important than spreading the word of God. It happened then, it happens the very same way today. The mission of the Church has been perverted once again.

Look around yourselves, everyone is boasting or praising someone else about how much they have done for such and such cause, yet nobody speaks the Truth and the wolves are ravaging the flock.

Radu Blebea (A conversation echoing through time) - Fr. Seraphim Rose (like the holy new martyr Fr. Daniel) states concerning these matters: "Orthodox Christianity stands apart from and opposed to every one of the world's religions; the Orthodox Church alone preaches the complete truth of God's purpose for man and provides the sufficient means for attaining it. Only in and through the Orthodox Church is eternal life in God, deification, possible. Ignorance or rejection of this truth and these means is not an indifferent matter;
it is a matter of spiritual life or death, of salvation or damnation.

The world and its religions reject this exclusive claim of the Orthodox Church. Is it possible, then, for an Orthodox Christian to stand with the very leaders of these religions and, for the moment, "forget" what distinguishes and divides the Church of Christ from all other religions and agree upon common "religious" aims that have nothing to do with salvation?"

Radu Blebea "After all, if you remember that without baptism there is no salvation, how can you limit the mission of the Church to just a nation or a social group? Why distinguish between traditional or non-traditional religions, all of whose followers in friendly rows descend into hell fire? How can you say that in the preaching of the Gospel, respect for other religious traditions is necessary, when we know that the result of these traditions will be the eternal decay of their bearers in the fiery abyss? All this is the manifestation of a truly satanic cruelty, when, due to short-term political goals, one looks through his fingers not at the murder of the body, but at the death of the soul, or the manifestation of a ordinary lack of faith, when the Gospel is perceived as a document of earlier historical epochs. Something that "forms the spiritual and moral image of the Russian nation", and not the unthinkable news of the sole salvation for the dying humanity."

James 2:14-18
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

Radu Blebea Thank you brother Gregor.

Fr Seraphim Rose was quite prophetic about saying how their aim was to get communism (communist ideals) preached by the hierarchs of the Church themselves, which is what makes the "missions" document so dangerous.

Fr Seraphim Rose: "But with the Soviets, the aim is much deeper: ultimately, to destroy the Church entirely, using the Church’s hierarchs themselves (when possible) as the agents of this scheme; and, on the way to this end, getting the Church to defend Communism abroad and to preach a “Communist Christianity” that prepares the way ideologically for the coming triumph of world Communism, not only as a universal political regime, but as an ideological and pseudo-religious tyranny as well".

By putting the world through hell, creating so much iniquity and suffering throughout the whole world and sacrificing America and the West in the process (as agents of iniquity), the hope is that humanity will unite under the rule of one leader who will promise to put an end to ever increasing and ever unbearable tribulations being brought upon mankind. Then a new gospel of universal peace and justice shall be preached.

Anyone who will oppose the new gospel shall be deemed as an enemy of peace and shall be persecuted and killed.

Gregor Isiopili:

'Sergianism (which was fought against by many New Martyrs of Russia) was, among other things, an altering of the very mission of the Orthodox Church. It sought to make the Church subservient to other agendas - to set the Church on a different mission - a mission to serve this fallen world as opposed to the Eternal Kingdom. Such an alteration was (and is) theoretically possible even without any apparent alteration of dogmas or canonical violations. Such apostatic deviations have been described by many New Martyrs and Fr. Seraphim Rose as "worse than any heresy". This video makes the case that a current form of Sergianism has been openly accepted by the Cretan "synod" via the "Mission" document (which was, of course, pushed into the agenda for this "council" by the Soviets)'

Radu Blebea A few thoughts on the false antichrist (which the world awaits) and the true antichrist (which the world will accept as the messiah, or the grand liberator)

I think the world is already prepared to accept anyone who appears to deceive for antichrist. The deception will have to be obvious to everyone, and easy to assess and acknowledge.

The deception will be enough for the world to declare one as antichrist. Therefore this is the reason we see the theatrics being played out in the open today, to try to convince us and demonstrate that someone is trying to deceive us on a global scale.

The real antichrist, when he comes, will only be perceived as a deceiver and understood to be so by a very small minority.

The charismatic aspect is not an important trait for a decoy since in the western understanding (and equally so in world orthodoxy) the Antichrist will be seen more like a tyrant.

Charisma will be important though for the real Antichrist. People will have to see in him everything they cannot see in these multitude of false antichrists coming and going on the political scene. It is all a show.

The Gospel says there will be many antichrists before the real one comes forth.

1.) The Book of Revelation never uses the word "antichrist". There is a beast, whose number is 666. But no antichrist.
The most likely interpretation being that it was talking about Caesar Nero.
2.) There is an antichrist mentioned by St. Paul in his letters to the Thessalonians. But in all likelihood, he is talking about the descecration of the temple by the Emperor Titus.

Dragi, înalţi preasfinţiţi stăpâni! Părinţi, fraţi şi surori! Să apărăm credinţa ortodoxă! Să apărăm Sfânta Treime, Singurul Dumnezeu Adevărat.
Deja patriarhul Kiril a recunoscut un singur Dumnezeu pentru ortodoxi şi musulmani. Aceasta-i o minciună, apostazie. „Fiecare (ortodox sau musulman) se adresează Unuia şi Aceluiaşi Dumnezeu – Creatorul”. A crecunoaşte pe Allah ca Dumnezeu înseamnă a te lepăda de Iisus Hristos şi Prea Sfânta Treime.
Dragi arhipăstori, păstori, părinţi, fraţi şi surori! Papa de la Roma, „Papa” de la Moscova, „Papa” de la Constantinopol fac acelaşi lucru –pregătesc Biserica pentru Antihrist. Aceasta este porunca iudeo-masonilor.
Dragi părinţi şi fraţi, se petrece o mare lepădare de Dumnezeu, de Adevăr, apostaziea oamenilor, instigare, globalizare, pecetluirea oamenilor, introducerea celor trei şase, biometrie, cipuri – merge satanizarea oamenilor. Nu cum să nu înţeleagă asta! Cum poţi să trăieşti – să nu-ţi placă asta şi să nu protestezi contra la asta? De aceea, dragi arhi-păstrori, părinţi, fraţi şi surori! Nu trebuie să tăcem aşa. Trebuie să apărăm credinţa ortodoxă. Trebuie să ne luptăm. Trebuie sufletul nostru să-l dăm pentru Biserică, pentru Hristos Dumnezu, pentru Sfânta Treime – Singurul nostru Dumnezeu.
Înalt Prea Sfinţiile voastre, vlădica (stătâni)! În timp de erezie, Sfântul Antonie cel Mare şi alţi sfinţi au ieşit din zăvorâre, din pustia îndepărtată şi s-au dus în oraş. Şi mulţi, mulţi monahi şi mărturisitori, pustnici…
Sfântul şi marele stareţ Sava, Sfinţitul, a ieşit cu zeci de mii de monahi, i-au demascat pe eretici şi s-au luptat, şi chiar şi viitori monahi au anatematizat pe chiriarhul lor. … Aşa ar trebui de anatematizat. Dar dacă arhierii/episcopii tac şi tac ?! Dar tăcerea, iertaţi, tăcerea înseamnă lepădare de Domnul. De aceea, dragilor, să ne ridicăm toţi ca unul, să ridicăm creştinii ortodocşi, toate popoarele pământului, pentru curăţia credinţei ortodoxe. Asta se poate face şi se va face într-un final, pentru ca ierarhii noştri să se răzgândească şi înceapă să se grijească de turmă şi să apere Sfânta Biserică Ortodoxă.
Dragilor multrespectaţi, Înalt Prea Sfinţiile Voastre, arhi episcopi, episcopi, dragi stăpâni! Mă adresez către voi toţi: Pentru ce voi tăceţi în acest moment de patriotism, când prea fericitul patriah L-a trădat pe Hristos, a trădat Biserica, a trădat Rusia şi păstori ei şi pe voi arhi păstorii lui Dumnezeu. Nu se cade a tăcea, ci a spune: Opriţi ereticii, oprinţi! Dezbrăcaţii de haine (ai opri de la slujire) şi izolaţii de patriarhie! Voi nu trebuie să slujiţi cu aceşti eretici. Trebuie să curăţim Biserica de erezie şi de această instigare prin care se vrea predarea Bisericii Antihristului, de către masoni.
Eu ştiu, dragi stăpâni, că voi nu sunteţi toţi masoni. Dacă sunteţi masoni, ce v-a legat de masoni? – cariera? Cariera o poate da Dumnezeu. De ce vă duceţi acolo? Eu nu vă judec, eu vă preîntâmpin – nu trebuie de mers acolo. Pocăiţi-vă şi îndreptaţi-vă! … Dar ca arhierei trebuie să apăraţi Biserica. Cea mai mare îndatorire a voastră este să apăraţi Biserica Ortodoxă şi să-i izolaţi de Biserică pe vrajmaşii lui Hristos, vrăjmaşii Bisericii. Eu socotesc, după simplitatea mea, sincer vă spun că eu îl consider pe patriarhul Kiril – mason, eretic, FSB şi lui i s-a poruncit să predea Biserica Antihristului. Oamenii înţelepţi foarte bine înţeleg asta. Dar voi nu duceţi în ispită oamenii simpli. Lămurităţi-le oamenilor această taină a fărădelegii şi apăraţi Sfânta Biserică şi turma voastră care vă crede pe voi şi pe care Dumnezeu v-a încredinţat-o.
Înalt preasfinţiile voastre, arhi păstori şi stăpâni, asta Domnul v-o cere? Eu nu vă condamn, eu vă iubesc. Eu vă rog şi vă cer, măcar pentru mântuirea voastră, aveţi grijă de Biserica lui Hristos, de turmă, salvaţi-le sufletele. Păstraţi Biserica lui Hristos! Apăraţi-o! Izolaţi de Biserică pe toţi vrăjmaşii ei, pe toţi ereticii. Apăraţi Biserica şi Dumnezeu o să vă apere şi o să vă miluiască pe voi.
Dragi arhi păstori şi păstori, eu deja în mod „tragic” mă adresez vouă – Salvaţi Biserica, salvaţi sufletele voastre, arătaţi-vă gelozia voastră pentru Biserică lui Hristos, pentru sufletele oamenilor voştri credincioşi. Pentru asta, arhi episcopi şi episcopi, aveţi un mare răspuns înainte Domnului Hristos. Eu trebuie să mă tem de Dumnezeu, de Dumnezeul Atotţiitorul! Nu trebuie să mă ameninţaţi pe mine cu interdicţii sau uciderea. Eu am deja 84, aproape 85 de ani.
Dragi stăpâni, eu cu smerie vă rog – întoarceţi-vă la Biserica lui Hristos! Salvaţi Rusia, poporul ortodox rus! Apăraţi turma lui Hristos! Vă cer iertare pentru îndrazneala mea, pentru că eu un ticălos m-am adresat vouă cu cerere. Hristos a Înviat!02.06.2017 at 08:11 am

Radu Blebea This is a very important topic because many holy people said that the last russian tsar was the restraint that held satan bound. With the elimination​ of the God anointed emperors, the wisdom of God has been replaced with the wisdom of man, monarchy with democracy. A new world order has emerged and the reign of Antihrist started. I am appalled by the fact that some who call themselves Orthodox say this is just a political issue with no relevance today. Their Orthodox world view is severely impaired.

Father Seraphim Rose started on early writing a book called "The kingdom of God and the kingdom of man" which he never got to finish but many of the ideas surfaced in various of his other writings.

What we see today is the very fulfilment of the coming of the kingdom of man and the antichrist as its ruler.

“A priest who is not a monarchist is not worthy to stand at the altar table. The priest who is a republican is always a man of poor faith. God himself anoints the monarch to be head of the kingdom, while the president is elected by the pride of the people. The king stays in power by implementing God’s commandments, while the president does so by pleasing those who rule. The king brings his faithful subjects to God, while the president takes them away from God.” –Metropolitan and New-Martyr St. Vladimir of Kiev "

Radu Blebea Have been reading articles recently that JP Morgan is hoarding physical silver like there is no tomorrow. If those rumours are true (they can't be verified as nobody has access to their books), and i tend to believe they are true, then there is a very plausable explanation as to why, given the recent revelations about Ethereum. The explanation is rather simple: they will digitize silver into Ethereum after the big reset (collapse of the current financial system) and the revaluation of precious metals. This way they will have the required capital to start afresh ...

While the normal people will be wiped out in the coming ​financial collapse, some are quietly positioning themselves to benefit from the calamity ...

"hoarding?" Hardly ... and your "authority" speaks on a page that is in the silver business ... wow! If J.P. Morgan, is "hoarding," then we better get us some of that there silver! People looking for sales, to make money. Period.
There is a sort of survivalist myth that "we can survive global collapse" if we have gold, silver, bulletproof bunkers, food, water, land, guns, bullets, whatever ... extremely doubtful. Only "surviviors" will be those with more and bigger weapons than those who try to take away what they have. Until, that is, somebody with more than them come along. "Trust ye not in princes, in the sons of men, in whom there is no salvation." Like a nuclear war- some may survive; afterwards-will they be glad they did? Trust in God, not some silver sellers advertising blog ....29.05.2017 at 09:04 am

The 900,000 million ounces is a mistake in that article. Shoul be 900 million.29.05.2017 at 09:07 amMichael Woerl I waon't argue the point further ... Survivalism has little to nothing to do woth Orthodoxy ... so, doesn;t really matter which article from the silver business is right or wrong.29.05.2017 at 09:08 amRadu Blebea Me neither. People need to be warned. A calamity is heading their way. It is not survivalism. It is about people being wiped out.

33 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:

3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.

5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.29.05.2017 at 09:28 am
Radu Blebea Clearly there is a mistake in that article. It states:

"Today’s total transparent silver investment funds and exchange depositories now hold just over 920,000 million ounces of silver. Close to 1 million ounces of silver may sound like a lot."

The lack of care in writing that article is obvious.

It should state "Close to 1 billion ounces" which​ is the real figure (900 million)

In fact ​that article clearly states that that is close to the yearly production.

Half of that is in JP morgan hands, yes.

Radu Blebea Ezekiel 33King James Version (KJV)

33 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:

3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.

5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.

7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.

8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?

11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.

14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;

15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.

16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.

18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

20 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.

21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten.

22 Now the hand of the Lord was upon me in the evening, afore he that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more dumb.

23 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance.

25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye possess the land?

26 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land?

27 Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.

28 For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through.

29 Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.

30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord.

31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.

33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

With this increase in "censorship" of " free Speech", we have to remodel the web site to be more independent and not bound up with jurisdictional and Masonic control. Our spiritual fathers both alive & reposed taught this as a strategy for our times and is not a place for self-opinionated expression. In fact this will protect our current bishop more from having to defend our position as IOWA - independent Orthodoxy workers of Australia. It's a wonder we were not shut down down earlier. Then we can really present the Truth for modern Truth seekers without pages of useless apologetics.
Christ is risen - In Truth He is risen

God bless you for your zeal and struggles to bring the Words of our Lord as they should be.: full of hard-hitting, masculine power (no sissyness), & the gentleness and beauty of the feminine attractiveness that keeps Mary & Martha seated at Christ's feet, rather than fussing over pots & pans, and how lovely was the sky this morning, with no repentance nor change to Christ-likeness. We have been requested to read the Akathist to Great Marter Catherine for 40 days to strengthen us in this work.

Are you ready?18.05.2017 at 02:50 am1
