HOLY FIRE

According to written sources, on Holy Saturday that year, a group of Turkish soldiers, after mediation Armenians, prohibited the transit of the Orthodox Church of the Resurrection. The crowd of the faithful remained in the courtyard of the church throughout the day, but even after sundown. Patriarch Sophronius D, which diinye the first year of his tenure, took over for the first time to carry out the most important ceremony of the year, however, the Turks denied him the legal right. The patriarch stood praying in the left part of the gate of the temple, near a column. And suddenly, having already fallen the night, the column ruptured and Holy Fire sprang from the inside. The patriarch immediately lit the candle and conveying the Holy Fire to the believers. Within minutes, the sacred flame spread to all attendees and the churchyard was illuminated. The astonished Turkish guards then opened the gates of the church and the patriarch, with the number of Orthodox, went solemnly to the Holy Sepulchre.



T
he soul has its senses and, consequently, it feels
The last decision is not an act of overthrow, the decision of the soul at the moment of its separation from the body, but rather to make a union with the transformed, resurrected body with which the soul will continue to live forever. After separation, the soul has its senses and, as a result, feels, perceives, and generally exercises all the energies of the soul (Revelation 6: 9-10, 7:15? 1 Peter 3:19; Hebrews 12:23; Luke 16: 27-28). The word "sleep", which characterizes death, does not refer to the soul, but to the body. In Matthew 27:52, we read that many saints who had fallen asleep were put to death. The final decision will be made on the second coming of Jesus Christ, a strong belief of the Church recorded in the Creed that "He (Jesus Christ) will come again with glory to judge the fast and the dead." The time of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is not known and, according to Revelation, it cannot be conjectured by any means.

NOTES

Whoever trumpets his rebirth through Baptism, but still has the same way of life should listen to the word of God who says: “If anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself”and “As many as received him, to them he gave the right to become children of God”. If anyone asserts that he has received God, he must demonstrate it by his choice. “Manifest in yourself Him Who begot you”. And he asks very incisively: “Do you not know that a man becomes a son of God in no other way than by becoming holy?”. To become a child of God one must be holy.

St. Gregory reaches the point of making a bold statement, as he himself says. If in spite of Baptism the soul has not removed the stains – which means if our life after Baptism is the same as it was before – then the water of the sacrament is simply water, “because the grace of the Holy Spirit did not appear”. In other words, it is as if a man had not received the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Many recent studies of UFO by evangelical Protestants, collect all these items and reach the conclusion that the UFO phenomena is simply just demonic origin. * It is difficult to reach a different conclusion Orthodox Christian researcher. Some or many of the experiences might be the result of fraud or hallucinations; but it is simply impossible to dismiss one all the many thousands of UFO reports in this way. A large number of modern mediums and their spiritualistic phenomena are also deceptively; but mentioumistikos spiritualism, when is genuine, undoubtedly produces truly "paranormal" phenomena under the action of demons. The phenomena UFO, having the same source, is no less real.

May God preserve us from the Apostasy and from the coming of Antichrist, the preliminary signs of which are multiplying day by day. May I preserve us from the great affliction which even the elect would not be able to bear without the Grace of Him Who will cut short these days. And I wish to protect us by keeping us in the "little flock," the "remainder according to the election of grace" so that we like Abraham might rejoice at the Light of His Face, the embassy of the Virgin Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary , all the inhabitants of heaven cloud of witnesses, prophets, hierarchs, evangelists, and confessors who have been faithful unto death, who shed their blood for Christ, which we acquired with the gospel of Jesus Christ in the waters of Baptism. We are their sons - weak, sinful, and unworthy; but I will not stretch forth our hands toward a strange god! Amen.

Reads one to wonder about the latest acts and declarations of the ecumenical movement. In thinner level, Orthodox theologians representing the American Standing Conference of Orthodox Bishops and other official Orthodox Bodies perform "dialogues" with Roman Catholics and Protestants and issue "joint statements" with themes such as the Eucharist, spirituality, and the like - without even inform the heterodox that the Orthodox Church is the Church of Christ in which all are invited, that only its own Mysteries sponsors grace, that the Orthodox spirituality can be understood only by those who know empirically in the Orthodox Church, that all these "dialogues" is a conventional caricature of genuine Christian conversation - a conversation that aims to save souls. Indeed, many of the Orthodox participating in these "dialogues" know or suspect that there is no place for Orthodox witness, that the atmosphere itself of ecumenical "liberalism" cancels any truth can be said unto them: but silent, because the "spirit of the times" today is often louder than the voice of the Orthodox consciousness.

MY POINT OF VIEW

The gradual removal of Orthodoxy purity has begun with the support of politicians, but also serving the university establishment that allows or promotes sophisticated solutions to overcome the strong doctrinal foundations of Orthodoxy for the sake of snobby people of pan-religion and Neotaxikon interests.

However, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ, and received by the Apostles, and continues to be unadulterated to this day only in Orthodoxy, was not made by human effort like those of the West, and therefore we cannot add or subtract anything from it.

ALBERT PAIK "World War III must be provoked by the differences caused by the Illuminati's Agentur between Zionist politicians and the leaders of the Islamic world. The war must be waged in such a way that Islam (Islam) the Muslim Arab world) and political Zionism (the state of Israel) to be overthrown. ... "

People need to be submissive, and only to one person! The only thing they don't say is that the letters of his name, collected, must give 666 as a result !!!

The first step in killing a nation is to erase its memory. To destroy his books, his culture, his history. Then put someone to write new books, build a new education, invent a new story. It won't take long for this nation to start forgetting who it is and who it was. The rest of the world around him will forget it even faster. "

Τα βιβλία του Septuagint είναι όλοι κανόνες γιατί οι Εβραίοι δημιούργησαν το Septuagint στα ελληνικά.


 Διαβάστε τα κανονικά βιβλικά βιβλία και μην τα αφήσετε γιατί υπάρχουν 2000 χρόνια επιβεβαίωσης για την αλήθεια, αλλά αυτό είναι στην Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία. Η Προτεσταντική Εκκλησία (που προέρχεται από τη λέξη "διαμαρτυρία") έχει εξαλείψει 10 βιβλία επειδή δεν τους άρεσε αυτό που είπαν.

Τα βιβλία του Septuagint είναι όλοι κανόνες γιατί οι Εβραίοι δημιούργησαν το Septuagint στα ελληνικά. Εκείνη την εποχή, οι Εβραίοι δεν κατάλαβαν καν τα Εβραϊκά γιατί ο Μέγας Αλέξανδρος είχε κατακτήσει τον κόσμο και όλοι οι Εβραίοι μιλούσαν Ελληνικά για τόσο πολύ καιρό που δεν γνώριζαν Εβραϊκά. Όταν ήρθε ο Χριστιανισμός, οι Έλληνες χρησιμοποίησαν το Septuagint για να αποδείξουν ότι ο Ιησούς ήταν ο Μεσσίας. Οι Dead Sea Scrolls απέδειξαν ότι το Septuagint ήταν πιο ακριβές από τα Masoretic κείμενα που γράφτηκαν 1200 χρόνια μετά το Septuagint. Τα ψευδογράφοι ήταν όλα σε ξεχωριστούς κυλίνδρους, οπότε και μόνο επειδή βρέθηκαν στην ίδια τοποθεσία, αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι αποτελούν μέρος του «επίσημου γραπτού».

Η Χριστιανική Βίβλος, η Καινή Διαθήκη, έχει παρόμοια βιβλία όπως το Βιβλίο του Ιούδα ... που γράφτηκε 200 χρόνια μετά την Ανάσταση. Όλα ονομάζονται αποκρυφα, αλλά υπάρχουν δύο τύποι αποκρυφα: το είδος που είναι ψευδές και μυθοπλασία που δεν περιλαμβάνονται στην Ορθόδοξη Βίβλο. Στη συνέχεια, υπάρχουν διαμαρτυρόμενα αποκρύφατα που εξαλείφθηκαν επειδή οι Προτεστάντες δεν τους άρεσαν αυτά που είπαν και επιβεβαίωσαν την ορθοδοξία, παρόλο που ήταν κανόνα για 1500 χρόνια. 2 Οι Maccabees 12: 43-45 στην πραγματικότητα μιλούν για προσευχή για τους Νεκρούς επειδή οι νεκροί δεν μπορούν να προσευχηθούν για τον εαυτό τους. Προσευχόμενοι για τους νεκρούς, τους σηκώνετε, γι 'αυτό στην Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία έχουμε μνημεία, ώστε να μπορούμε να προσευχόμαστε στον Θεό να συγχωρήσει την αμαρτία των αναπαυτών, ώστε να μπορέσουν να εισέλθουν στο βασίλειο του ουρανού

The Church will be on earth in the time of the Antichrist



But there are also verses that show that indeed, in the time of the Antichrist, the Church will be on earth and will be defeated for a short time:

Revelation 13: 7 And it came to pass, that, after the saints were given war, and they were overcome.

Daniel 7: 21 And the horn was at war with the saints, and prevailed against them.

So long as there are saints on earth, they will not be caught. And this is not about others who are supposed to be sanctified, because they would not be able to prevent the abduction, nor the resurrection that will take place with it as we have seen.

If the "possessor" is the Church, which "possesses" the Holy Spirit, as some of them say, how would others be sanctified without the Holy Spirit? The "possessor" would be here again.



7. Warning of the apostle Paul

God, having foretold that some false teachers (such as the so-called "Evangelists" and "Pentecostals") would teach distorted the prophecies of the Church, inspired the apostle Paul to warn their prospective victims:

2 Thessalonians 2: 1-8 (do not be trustworthy), neither to be disturbed, nor through spirit, (false prophecies like those that convince the "Pentecostals"), nor through words, nor through a letter that we (the apostles) supposedly wrote, that the (one) day was near of the Lord.

3. Don't be fooled by anyone in any way. Because first the apostasy is to come, and the man of lawlessness to be revealed, the son of loss, 4. the opposing and proud before every so-called god or reverence ... 8. whom the Lord Jesus will destroy with the spirit of His mouth, and will remove him from the surface of His presence. "

The words of the apostle clearly show that the abduction and the Presence of the Lord will not come unless the Antichrist appears first. And only then will the Presence come, which will abolish it.

So those who carelessly pay attention to the reasons for such groups, let them pay attention to the words of the apostle, because by listening to these perverted and arbitrary interpretations, for alleged abduction before the Antichrist, only confusion and loss can be brought to their souls.

The divinely inspired sources of faith



The above shows another dimension for understanding what is written. The fact that everyone interprets the Bible in their own right, with the result that today there are thousands of different religions that all claim to interpret it correctly, shows that the Bible alone is not a safe guide to God. We need the guidance of the Church, the one who wrote and collected the books of the Bible. It, as a pillar and consolidation of the truth, has kept the gospel unchanged all these centuries. Where there are gaps in the Bible, they are supplemented by other divinely inspired sources.

That is why the Orthodox Church uses the following divinely inspired books which are in complete harmony with each other:

The Bible,

the decisions of the Ecumenical Councils,

the texts of the fathers approved by the ecumenical councils,

the hymnology of the Church,

and Functional texts.

All this is always in agreement with each other, and with all the charismatic saints of all times.



6. The Bible's view

"But then, why at the end of the Bible does it forbid to add or subtract what is written in this book?" the reader will probably insist.

In reality, however, the book referred to in this verse (Revelation 22: 18,19) is the Revelation, not the Bible as a whole. He could not mean the Bible because it refers to "this prophecy." Revelation also entered the Bible in the 4th century for the first time. And most importantly, the letters B and C of John, were written in 98 AD, two years after the Apocalypse! So they should stay out of the Bible if the verse was talking about all her books.

Instead, the Bible says that there are others besides her. In the last verse of the Gospel of John, it is stated that "Jesus did other things, that if they were written one by one, the world would not fit the written books."

Elsewhere, however, the Bible urges us, through the mouth of the Apostle Paul, not to reject the Holy Tradition:

Second Thessalonians, 2: 15: "So, brethren, stand up and keep the traditions, let them be taught either by word or by letter."

So, apart from what was written in the apostles' letters, their word remained in the Church, which has survived to this day, with the rest of the tradition. So why don't those who reject the tradition accept these words of the Bible?

Let them be careful, because the words of the Lord against the tradition of the Pharisees who are invoked are directed against the Jewish tradition, and not the Christian tradition.

The Christian tradition also contains the "solid food" of which the apostle Paul speaks in his letter to the Jews, in 5 / 11-14. There, in this most difficult letter of the Bible, the author mentions all this "milk". But then, the Bible does not contain "solid food"! Therefore, solid food must be sought in the rest of the Holy Tradition.

The same can be seen in verse 1 of Peter 1:19. There, it seems that the divinely inspired prophetic word is only a lamp, shining in a dark place, until the phosphorus rises in our hearts.

So let us use the Bible's introductory lamp of wisdom with prudence, in order to claim to enjoy all that God has to teach us.
