Saint Symeon the New Theologian
St. Symeon
New Theologian

Whoever does not deign to attain unity with the last of the saints (i.e. unity in life with those now living, accessible bearers of the Holy Spirit) with all their love and with strong desire through humility, but has gotten in his relationship with him some small mistrust, he will in no wise ever be united and stand together with them in one rank with the former and the saints who have gone before, although he might think that he has all faith and all love towards God and all the saints. He will be cast out by them as one not able to occupy, with the help of humility, that place which before the ages was appointed him by God.

Lord, Who knowest Thine own! Thou art righteous and most wise, concealing them from the world, which is unworthy to know them and which would use for evil the knowledge of them: but be Thou also good towards them that although, perhaps, are not yet Thine, but desire to become and remain Thine; show a sign by which we also who are unknowing, might come to know that which is good, grace-filled, holy, in one word, that which is Thine in man, so that more than all else we might love what is Thine, seek out that which is Thine, learn and follow in that which is Thine, to cleave unto and be united to that which is Thine, and through unity with Thine own, and subsequently with Thee Thyself, to have that blessed hope and to be invariably Thine for all eternity. Amen.

The Divine Moses


The Prophet Moses, whose life is depicted in a variety of paintings, icons, movies, and other forms of art, is one of the most famous biblical figures. However, these types of portrayals tend to draw exclusively on biblical narratives. This book attempts to create a three-dimensional structure of the biblical narrative in order to uncover the global and historical significance of this remarkable human being, as well as the blessed fruits of his labor and wisdom, which were passed down not only to the Israeli people, but to all of humankind. We shall embark upon a journey to ancient times in order to feel the zeitgeist of Mosesí day, learn about God and the fellowship of His chosen people, and come to know the miracles and wonderful gifts that He has bestowed upon us.




The Holy Abraham


Dear reader, before you lies a profound theological work: the Story of Holy Abraham. In this book, the author uses biblical texts to study the life of one of the Bible's most significant figures - the righteous Abraham - and by reconstructing those events that are concealed to the average reader, reveals the path that made Abram into Abraham, a spiritually impeccable friend of God. The author considers Abraham's remarkable religious genius and razor sharp intuition to be of particular note, inasmuch as they helped him to not only lead a pious and worthy life before the Lord, but also become the father of all of today's faithful believers in the one true God.





It is the time of Lent in the Church of Christ, which is a period of exceptional repentance for the sins of both the past year and of all our previous lives. Given that people of today do not repent, do not fast, and do not even acknowledge themselves as sinners, so too do they refuse the praise and aide of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who came to this world to save all sinners by calling them to repent. For those who reject penance and do not repent, He has other words:

Luke 13:
1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

And people are dying! And they are forced to fast, not for their spiritual health, but because the disease is more important than fasting and prayer. So many pray for the preservation of their lives and the lives of their neighbors. However, there is no such thing as conscious repentance, just as sinners have no ability to sincerely confess. This will lead to the arrival of new, diverse global ills and sorrows, and with them, to a significant reduction in the number of people living on the Earth. The onset of disease began as foretold by Christ in His Gospel. But this is not the end! Not the end of the entire world, but it will be the end for many people living today. The coming Easter of Christ will be the most mournful in mankindís history since World War II. We will celebrate Christ's victory over death as death uses this insidious virus to cut down the lives of tens of thousands of people, if not hundreds of thousands, and later, perhaps even millions!

Let us understand the TRUE REASON of this global CALAMITY!

I testify to the Living and Almighty God that I am writing this message not on my own, but according to the will of God and through His inspiration! It is your business and your personal choice to accept it or reject it, as well as invite any and all consequences that arise from that choice. Christians, itís our business to let everything pass through our personal penance. You canít be self-confident and self-sufficient! Today, many people take the views of broadcasters on this topic into account at face value (the media, analysts, doctors, "doctors", political scientists, bloggers, and YouTubers and Instagrammers, whose broadcasts are unavoidable) whose truth is by no means guaranteed (especially by God) only because no one knows for sure. We learn about many things only at the Last Judgment of God. Pandemics and epidemics of contagious diseases, referred to in the Scriptures as plagues, are permitted by God because of our sinfulness in order to allow us to suffer for our sins, to turn us to repentance for these sins, so that we recognize ourselves as sinful, castigated, and defenseless without God's help. The Lord God punished David, the holy king of Israel, and his people with a terrible plague (which David chose from the three punishments proposed by God), which was to destroy all the people within three days. In a day and a half, this plague claimed the lives of 70,000 people out of a population of three million. This is, in terms of quantity and proportion, much higher than the total number of people who have died from COVID19 as of today (March 26, 2020)! David repented, called all the people to penance, set up a sacrificial altar, and offered a sacrifice to God in propitiation to stop the pestilence, and God stopped the plague halfway through its course! Who among the rulers of today is acting like King David did regarding the pandemic? No one! But the plague of the kingdom of David was unleashed because of his personal decision to take control of his subjects, counting them through a census. Today, the virus and the pandemic that it has brought upon us are blamed on bats, snakes, pangolins, the evil schemes of the Chinese leadership or special services of the USA, Britain, and France, the actions of aliens, reptilians, the Masons, a handful of the richest families, a global conspiracy, and the like, but not the sins of people against God and His Christ, and not the sins of leaders in an attempt to establish total, digital control over humanity on a global scale. Due to the global scale of their actions, we see a global pandemic! Which city or country is repenting like the ancient city of Nineveh in response to the preaching of the Prophet Jonah? Not a single city or country! In which city today are there at least ten righteous people for whose sake the city could be saved from God's plague and calamity? There are no such cities, towns, or villages on this Earth! But there are many people who are prepared to refuse vaccination, even to prevent the infection (and potential death as a result) of COVID19. Opponents of vaccination should understand and accept that vaccination is currently the only method of preventing the spread of deadly diseases transmitted from person to person or from animals and birds to humans available to humanity. Any attempt to resist vaccination is therefore criminal before both God and people, despite the negative side effects that can sometimes result from vaccinations! The fact that some wrongdoers try to use vaccines to their own devious ends neither changes the facts nor cancels the benefits of vaccinations! Canceling vaccinations will lead to an immeasurably greater number people who both contract and die from plagues, which we can clearly see through the example of this insidious virus, for which a vaccine does not yet exist! Food and medicine can also do harm, but we shouldn't stop eating, drinking, or taking medicine. The air can also be poisonous, but we do not stop breathing. People die most often in car accidents, but we do not refuse to drive our cars. Electricity, manufacturing, and transport also bring about unforeseen deaths, as does politics in particular, with its global (and other) wars, but no one refuses to take advantage of these things. Through our faith, we leave to Christ that which we do not have the opportunity to influence ourselves. It was he who told us that if we take something deadly within ourselves (without knowing weíve done so) it will not hurt us, because we will be protected from all possible harm and death by Christ, the most reliable protection that God can offer us. To various conspiracy theorists, I declare that no worldwide conspiracy exists and cannot exist (this is addressed by the Word of God in His Scriptures) except for the conspiracies of Hell, which manifests itself in people in the form of inexplicable, secret lawlessness. But this secret is a secret, so that it may remain incomprehensible to us. No man or woman can penetrate this mystery of lawlessness; only a prophet clearly and directed designated by God can do so upon receiving His blessing to transmit this revelation to whichever other person or people He also blesses! There are some who say "But how could some people have predicted this pandemic long before it actually appeared?" I will answer them with the following: ďDemons and some extraordinary people can predict some instances of the future, but this is fortune telling, and not a clear and precise message from God! Only the Lord God knows everything, and for us it is enough to know what we know, otherwise He would have revealed this secret to us. And the individual atrocities of certain groups of global influence, which we cannot see or know (or we do not take note of) are all fully controlled by God and Heaven." That is why we should make peace with everything that happens in the world and around us, seeing through our faith that God is in everything and watching over everything. With sight through faith, one must maintain their presence in personal repentance and in good fellowship with God, taking care to connect with Him through all means and opportunities granted by Him, for this the essence of both human life and our protection from all evil and harm. At the same time, we cannot neglect medical, social, sanitary, quarantine, and hygienic measures and means, for God told us "Give a place to your doctor." We know as Christians who rely on the word of God recorded in the Holy Scriptures that we must keep the word of patience of Jesus Christ that He may save us from the year of temptation now approaching the whole Universe! I give you notice that this period of temptation has been sealed, has begun, and is steadily moving towards all of us, starting its course of action with this insidious virus. Only the Lord God will stop it, and He will certainly do it. We can and should, however, reduce its spread and the number of people dying from it through our attitude and our actions to the greatest extent we can. Everything else we put into the hands of Our Gracious God, beseeching Him not to leave us without His help and protection, and also to save us from the sorrows of the world for His own sake, for His glorious Name, and for the sake of our repentance - not for the joy of His enemies, who seek to diminish the numbers of His children, worshippers, and supporters! Amen! Amen! Amen!

This message was brought to you by a humble priest of God, His faithful servant, through His grace, mercy, and aide.
