December 2008 Message

 

Blessings to you who are my spiritual Children and

to those who view this message, Blessings indeed in the name of

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Theotokos;

Christmas = Christ-mass

 

 

On 7 January, Orthodox Christians in Central and Eastern Europe and throughout the world celebrated Christmas. Christians of the Russian and Serbian Churches as well as the monks of Mount Athos in Greece celebrate Christmas according to the old Julian calendar. Other Churches, including those of Greece and Bulgaria, have switched to the Gregorian calendar and celebrate the holiday 13 days earlier, on 25 December.

 

 

There is much we can learn from the past and even from the old world as some refer to Europe and European or Eastern Orthodox Catholic Christianity.  Yes... there is much that could be learned both in spirit and in truth if but one would take the time to do some research and contemplate on what is found...

 

So as to keep this as simple as possible, here is a link to "Orthodox Christmas" and what it means to true CHRISTIANS in both spirit and truth.  It is a means to gain in spirit as well as to learn mentally... Click here if you are interested.... 

 

Many there are who do not or cannot understand the differences in some of the feastal days of Orthodoxy... Yet, we (as Americans) do have our own dates as well.  To understand even better the Calendar Issue Click on this sentence.. and follow the links through...

 

For us in North America, many there are who do celebrate the Western Christmas... In our own American Orthodox Catholic Christian Jurisdiction, we celebrate December 25th as the giving of gifts to show that Christ is in all whom we hold near and dear and some who are not necessarily so near and dear.  Wouldn't it be nice to carry the message of Jesus Christ further by giving gifts to those who one may hold in detest as an enemy of sorts... a way to fulfill the meaning of true Repentance by showing forgiveness through this special time of year to show forth a means of true spiritual "Forgiveness" by the material act of giving a Christ-mass gift? 

 

On January 7th we celebrate the more spiritual importance of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ with Divine Liturgy and prayers; reading Holy Books, offering food and exchanging the glad tidings of His coming into the world through our hearts, minds and hopefully, our very souls. 

 

These are the thoughts of one who has traveled down the hallway of time who does wish for you and those who you hold near and dear... a Very Merry Christmas.  And, may it be that you, in perusing the links provided, might gain some spiritual insight and material or earthly historical understanding as well.

 

With what we are facing in this world now... it is going to become more difficult and in some places, disastrous.  Therefore, I can only ask that you offer up prayers and when you meet someone on the streets, no matter who they may be - friend or fore - greet them with the spiritual fruit of your heart by wishing them a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS....

October 2008 Message

 

Blessings to all of you who are my Spiritual Children in the Vineyard

and to all of you who view this message…

 

    Like soaring eagles we can rise above ourselves and do good or bad for God the +Father, the +Son, and the +Holy Ghost (Spirit) Who gave each one of us FREE WILL. 

 

    In as much as we are born with original sin, it does not mean that even after baptism we need to give in to the Evil One who corrupted our first parents, Adam and Eve.  Yet, as human beings, we are prone (in this life) to err by our thoughts, our very words, even our actions or deeds.

 

    As we grow to adulthood we are imbued with many things appropriate to our individuality, our beliefs and what we were provided by our earthly parents.  Sometimes this is a very good thing, sometimes it is not... For instance... If there was abuse in the home where the father beat up on the mother in front of the child(ren) there will be obvious consequences later on in each child's life for the memory, no matter how hard one attempts to blot it out, such will have an affect on the child in their adult life's parenting skills.  It is actually up to the child who has reached adulthood as to whether they will or will not be purposefully on guard to keep them from doing what was done by the offending parent.  Remember the biblical injunction that the sins of the father is visited on the child?  Well, in inimical ways, that is a very true statement no matter how hard one really tries to be ON GUARD!  The "sins" will show up in other ways, not necessarily the way in which it was manifested in the child.

 

    That too will have an affect on the way a child, who has reached adulthood, will process thoughts, ideas, their own actions in child rearing.  Another example of these many things, although not detailed because of lack of time and space on these pages to delve into the psychological reasoning is that of how a child who, in adulthood is now married and both spouses decide that they came from a home (not necessarily "house" for the words "home" and "house" actually have different meanings although society has opted to abuse the words...) life, upbringing where their parent(s) were too strict in keeping the house clean.  They oft times refer to their parent(s) as having been "Clean freaks".  In this example we can revisit their upbringing and see that while the parent(s) were not necessarily "clean freaks" but more concerned in using that as a tool to aid the child in mental processing of information (an unconscious action by the parents)... and as a tool to aid the child to ensure that in adulthood there will be concern for health issues in maintaining a clean environment as well as a happy home.  These are just some examples and are not extensive in themselves. 

 

    So, the children, now married, both decide they will not let their children be controlled by them or have them think of themselves in the same way that they thought of their parents.  Therefore they do not keep or maintain a clean environment or use those tools that their parents used to teach them and help them.  What happens?  One thing leads to another and another, etc.

 

    Now we come to where some of those children who have reached adulthood have memories of an abusive home and themselves have set up in their unconsciousness a thought that rides and hides in the recesses of their minds.   They do not marry!  They actually stay single although having many partners along the way and, in some instances, having many children whether known or unknown...

 

RELIGION AND HERETICAL THEOLOGIES IN CHILD RAISING

 

    We now come to the crux of parents in these present times.  For there are many of them, especially those of the backwoods whose mentality has grown abysmally ignorant for the lazy ways of life.  They pass this on to their own children.  They go to the groups or so-called churches that give them the "feel good" sensations about their so-called faith.  Who are these groups or so-called churches?  They are the the ones we've talked about before: Pentecostals, Jehovah's Witness, Assemblies of God, Mormons (not so bad, but pathetically ignorant of spiritual and historical truth with no reasoning of true import as to their heretical theology) for there too is mammon, self image with such to enliven their congregations to believe a lie as truth and truth as lie while using the many churches and worship areas of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church in many prison settings (California Prisons are one of them), for their use; all having one common trait; falsehood, error, unbelief in the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, more often than not, teaching their people that which is an 'entertainment' and 'feel good' approach without requiring them to learn what true spiritual struggle out of pain of heart for the faith will bring to those who hold fast.  This has become true of the Roman Jurisdiction of the present day 'Roman Catholics' who, unknowing to themselves, have been errantly lead to believe that the only "Catholic" is a Roman Catholic without knowing true historical truth.  Thus, many of the back-wood types such as those coming out the prison system share much in common with the Pentecostal and Assemblies of God types of so-called churches for they do not want truth to be known thus systematically through verbal assaults, beat up on those who do teach truth, as a means to show the numerous errors or lies of their heretical theologies that are not based, root, ground, and branch in that which is today known and called "Orthodox Catholic Christianity" especially as regards the Pillars of the Church which are centered and based in Holy Scripture such as the Seals of the Confessional that many Roman clergy are more and more departing from upholding in spirit and in truth.  They cannot see the allegorical because their eyes have been blinded by God as Jesus Christ has said would be done to them in His time and time to come, which is continuing even in these days...

 

    As a result we have those of the Pentecostal and Assemblies of God congregational members sometimes going out of their way to besmirch and defame even more so those who have taken prison sentences and/or gone to their death to uphold the true Pillars of the Church.  They have bitten into and accepted the disease of Synchrestic Ecumenism of which the very Bishop of Rome has accepted (both them and their heretical bags and baggage) as has the Pope before him when John Paul bent down on his knee to worship with the Dali Lama before the Statute of Buddha which was allowed to be placed on top of the Holy Tabernacle in which the Consecrated elements of Christ's Body and Blood were contained in... as though Buddha was above Jesus Christ and equal to or more than being true God in the +Father, the +Son, and the +Holy Ghost! 

 

   Thus the back wood types we have so far referenced and especially those of the Pentecostal and Assemblies of God Church ministers have gone out of their way to continue with the shrill sound of negativity in their television and radio programs to shout loudly against all things "Catholic" without regard (for many are unaware of the differences) of what constitutes "Orthodox Catholic Christianity" versus "Roman Catholic Christianity". 

 

    The Pentecostals do not want you to  recognize and realize that theirs is NOT a true Christian Faith but a faith based on 85% Old Testament beliefs that have little to no commonality with the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ.  They squint and squirm when the very subject of Jesus Christ chasing the money changers of the Temple (His Father's House) which is proof, by action, of the mammon and greed associated with worship in those times.  Has it changed today? Not really... take a look at the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church!  Take a look at the pockets full of wealth of both Pentecostals and Romans... Just take a darn good look!  Be ashamed, very ashamed!  They are, spiritually speaking, in league with the religion of Islam (Muslims who have, here in the USA used our very Prison and Jail Systems to promote themselves much like the Pentecostals, Assemblies of God and worse!)...

 

"HEARSAY" LAWS KILL TRUTH!

 

    The "hearsay" laws are the very things promoted by cultic Protestants as a means to destroy (thanks to Satan) those things which are the ground, root and base of all things CHRISTIAN that they departed from.  Therefore if you were a convicted clergyman, you may seem to feel that you have no means to regain any dignity or any spiritual strength for right or wrong, real or imagined.  And you will be the hunted, continually serving your sentence even after prison and parole!  You are supposed to have been reformed and rehabilitated, but that isn't the Pentecostal and Assemblies of God way of thinking, unless its one of their own which is based on the Old Testament, Not Jesus Christ  ... whether for right, wrong, real or imagined... you will be the very ones who they will loudly shout against and use as a weapon against the very true Church you came out of.  This is one of the major reasons why the Bishop of Rome (Pope) has opened his arms to the heretics with all their bags and baggage... as a means to squelch the tide leaving their jurisdiction, as are some of the Orthodox Churches who have sided up to the Roman Whore... who allowed for much of these things to happen... Satan, the deceiver, liar and Angel of Light who was cast out... is leading them astray...

 

TRUE SPIRITUAL PURSUITS

 

    What can be done?  There are many things that can and must be done.  But the most important is maintaining the true faith in spirit and in truth!  For without that one primary ingredient, your struggles out of pain of heart will become oppressive and futile.  Check out our Pascha pages at this web site in order to begin the journey that leads to the fount of truth which is in the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ!

 

    As to the remainder of you who squint at the subjects raised, you should be ashamed of yourselves!  You should be doing all things according to the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ!  True repentance, forgiveness (giving and receiving) is a must and going to your father confessors more often and thence taking your penance and seeking the ones out who are affected and by whom you may have been affected by; then to receive the ultimate healing balm and spiritual nourishment through the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist!

 

    If you are not an Orthodox Catholic Christian in either spirit or truth... Get out of the domain of the Evil One, Satan, the Deceiver and learn both spiritual and material truth! Become a True Christian while there is still time remaining in your life!!!  The glory is to God: +Father, +Son, and +Holy Ghost (Spirit).

September - October 2008 Message

 

And Addendum message:

 

Blessings to all of you who are my Spiritual Children in the Vineyard

and to all of you who view this addendum to my monthly message…

 

No matter how well educated we may be... no matter how spiritually alive we may like to think of ourselves... and no matter whether we be high in a holy office or the CEO of a large business; we are human beings whose frailties cause of mistakes to be made... words to be said that we regret and sometimes we do things that we had not intention to cause harm to anyone...

 

But those things can happen and do happen.  This is true in families between brothers and sisters, a mother and father... between children and parents.  Religious life is no different either!  For the religious community is a parallel of a family except this family has Jesus Christ at the helm of the family!  But do we listen?  What child often times does not take to heart the message of a parent or of the father?  So too it is true in a religious family, a community; whether in physical contact on a daily basis or extended... through out the world.

 

Sometimes because of known and unknown stresses and pressures of life and living we get caught up doing things we wished we hadn't done.  Sometimes, as a means to vent our steam (so-to-speak) we attempt conversation (written or oral) with another whom we believe is our 'friend' or have recently  attached ourselves, untested and unvetted. 

 

In doing so, saying things about our 'boss' that we should have said more directly to him, but we don't as we don't want to cause trouble.  But the trouble has already been started for the one sending the communication and saying what should not be said, has not taken into consideration that there exists a long history with the 'boss' and the one who is being conversed with.  What do you think will happen?

Blessings to you who are my spiritual Children and

to those who view this message, Blessings indeed in the name of

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Theotokos;

 

It is that time again when the children have returned to school.  What they are learning may alarm those of you who are true spiritual strugglers in the faith given us by Jesus Christ through His Holy Apostles which have come down to us through time and history.  Yet, what our children are learning are such as to cause for such a true spiritual struggler to shake and shudder with fear because those children will not necessarily become such as you would wish, true spiritual strugglers.  What they may be learning is of the entertainment mentality, being "dumbed down" whereby the language will be filled (when you are not around) with 4-lettered garbage words and phrases and such other things to make them "feel good" and to "impress" those around them.  Like the parents have to keep up with the "joneses" so do the children when they are in school have to keep up with the majority of kids who are out for One-Up-man-ship in all things to impress and be liked by others around them. 

 

You may wish to take a stronger hand in their educational growth than what you have been doing! 

 

On another note, we should discuss something that has been taking shape through out the internet and, it would seem, around the world. 

 

There are those of various Yahoo groups or forums that are putting themselves out to the public as being "Catholic" or "Independent Catholic" - etc.  Some claim to be "Orthodox" only because they may use an ancient liturgy that was in vogue prior to the schism of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church; but that does not make them "Orthodox" whatsoever.  More can be viewed about their leanings when they post such things that appertain to things "Roman" in such a light as to be sort-of "praising" them and announcing the many things that is happening in and with "Roman" jurisdictional matters, news and information.  The more one does such postings and providing such information, the more you can be sure they are not really "Orthodox" so much as rather similar to the "Uniates" who use Orthodox Liturgies but their faith and belief is (when researched) all things "Roman" meaning they are under the Bishop of Rome.  But as to those groups or forums we reference or refer to; they are not necessarily of, in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church, even when they use the nomenclature to make it appear they are "Orthodox" so much as they are attempting to make themselves appear to be so-called "Latin Rite this" or "Latin Rite that" ... "Latin Rite Orthodox" and even some Gallic nomenclature as being "Orthodox" of which it becomes confusing to the average viewer. 

 

Thus, they are independent but because the "Whore of Babylon" (scriptural reference - Book of Apocalypse - St. John's Revelation) is described as the Great Deceiver lead by Satan himself in the End Times (which has begun)... you can rest assure yourself that those "Independents" who claim and state they are not under "Rome" (which is more likely a truth) are yet "Roman Wanna-bees" ... having not about them the true spiritual struggle out of pain of heart to be truly "Orthodox" or even close to the "Orthodox" mind-set.  For their symbol or image, their "big brother" is all things "Roman" not truly Orthodox in spirit or in truth!  And this is a shame, to be honest.

 

We have granted permission for our webmasters to start two new article series.  One is ENVIRONMENTAL NEWS and the other is COMPUTER GURU NEWS UPDATES - and you may indeed ask the question WHY? 

 

As Orthodox Catholic Christians who are true spiritual strugglers out of pain of heart for the faith; you also will want to ensure that you have up-to-date news so that you can make honest decisions about what is going on around you that affects you, your family, your very loved ones and friends as well.  As a result, in order to be able to do this better, your computer and those things relating to technical matters may be of interest to you.  As for the Environment,  we are supposed to be responsible in all that we use and do on this planet earth as true spiritual strugglers out of pain of heart for the faith.  Our concerns should be to preserve and defend not only the faith itself which is being torn apart by Romans, Roman wanna-bees and more especially cultic protestants of various denominations... but also to preserve and defend the things of the earth and its creatures who God provided for us to aide in cultivating the earth, not destroying it. 

Thus, anyone who claims a nomenclature of their church, jurisdiction or parish with such that equates to a popish name of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church, are not truly Orthodox for neither Ethnic Orthodox and Western Rite Orthodoxy do not and never will subscribe to the heresies of the Roman Church who schismed from the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church by her innovative ideas and her violations of the ancient Seven Ecumenical Councils. That is why this jurisdiction often modifies a particular statement to where it says: "We subscribe and belong to the ONE, HOLY, ORTHODOX, CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH" which delineates those who are not truly spiritual strugglers out of pain of heart... for it is those of us and others of similar Orthodox jurisdictions know that we as a people, individually and collectively, cannot and must not allow for the ROMAN JURISDICTION OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH to interfere in our affairs and faith, not have any concourse with them until they come to that requirement which the Faith (Life and Teachings) of Jesus Christ demands of them... Full repentance, fully and open admitting of their errors... and most importantly... a changing of their ways in both spirit and in truth!

May it also be noted and understood that while there are certain ethnic jurisdictions who firmly believe that all who are chosen to become Bishops should be chosen in accordance with Biblical truth, one can only ask:  "So what is that truth?"  Do the research!  You will find that no where is there any support for all to come from a celibate un-married class or state of monasticism, even though it is an honorable state and a very Holy State; and one that is truly time honored.  But never, ever does Holy Scripture support the exclusion of an un-married episcopate as the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church demands of those who come to them!

May you each and every one be blessed according to your nature and degree of ability to understand the importance of true spiritual struggle out of pain of heart!

August - September 2008 Message

 

Blessings to all of you who are my Spiritual Children in the Vineyard

and to all of you who view this message…

Thanks to our Monk Michael on the East Coast, I received a wonderful link that provided sufficient information to restore most of our lost and stolen material having to do with Holy Scriptures..  The next thing we have to do here is find the cheapest copy (used or new) of the Bible translated by George M. Lamsa often called the Lamsa Edition.  I know that sounds like a rather un-subtle hint, but it was… forgive me for saying that but as the old American saying goes (or from wherever it came from) “Beggars cannot be chosers” and most certainly, as monastic as our lives get, we are BEGGARS.

However, the following is a link that should provide you information that, with deep and sincere concern for the written WORD that comes from and through Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, His Holy Apostles and those who are their legitimate successors in spirit and truth (meaning = according to their nature and degree of ability to abide to the WORD in this life for the life to come, holding the same in their spirit as being from GOD)… we are very much blessed no matter how hard the struggle out of pain of heart may be.

Our Monk Michael, when he sent the e-mail message said:

I have been telling everyone for years about the early church and what it actually taught, I have stated that the Catholic church was the teacher of the truth, these links will show you first hand of what I have been speaking of. Now when I say Catholic I am not speaking of the Roman Catholic Church but I am speaking of the Orthodox church.
 
Much of the teachings of the modern church are in error and the modern day Christian is too lazy to investigate for them self but would rather worship in the way that they find comfortable and which suits their personality, well for many who make the claim that they are teaching first century Christianity but refuse to accept Orthodox or the
Catholic teaching and choose to attack rather than study for the real truth; are in error.
 
You need to look at these two links, the first one is a news article talking about the 4th century Bible that has been in a British museum for a century but is now online for you to read for yourself what was actually taught in the early church. Many of the writings that I quote from will be found in this 4th century Bible (writings that some who read my newsletters argue about constantly and many Protestants deny with vileness and hatred).
 
If you are in fact a Christian, if in fact you actually love Jesus Christ and you do not read this nor care for the truth, or if you do
actually read it, you will have absolutely no excuse before Christ on the last day. Make your decision, blow this off and delete it, read it and blow it off which is in essence showing your true love for the truth, or read it, change your life and come to a real understanding of the truth and learn to worship properly.
 
It is your life and your time is now to make a better decision. Do not throw this opportunity away.
 
The first link is to the article, the second link is to the Bible itself.
 
May God direct your path.
 
Monk Michael

http://www.sinaiticus.com “ 

With such bold and true words of faith from our Monk Michael, I am deeply moved in my spirit to second his statements in part because of the numerous times we, both in California, and since, having come to New Mexico, attempted on numerous times to do similarly.  But, alas poor fool that I am, with what has happened over time since our coming to New Mexico and the shenanigans of those whom, for the moment, I can only call renegades… our work here has been more difficult and seriously harmed in part.  But, as I often have also said; “God does not close the door but what he leaves open a window” and we find that this is still true even in our own struggles out of pain of heart for the faith according to our nature and degree of ability.

Thus, I can only pray and hope (HOPE is so clearly pointed out in the Bible and even in the Oral Teachings of the Church as given by our Lord Himself) that we are able to overcome our own day-to-day sins and aide others as best we can and where the Holy Ghost (Spirit) leads us. 

I, personally, pray the same for each one of you no matter where you are (Rest Home, House, or otherwise)…

A question was asked of me a couple of days ago and thus I respond accordingly…

Every individual, no matter who s/he may be or where they are located (be it in New Mexico or elsewhere in the world) who know they have intentionally gone out of their way to cause harms toward us and our ministry; are FORGIVEN in spirit and in TRUTH… And, I would ask of them that (knowing who you are) that where I have taken action to defend ourselves and those with me, even though I errantly allowed my personal emotions to get involved, I do ask of you for your forgiveness and pray you understand that FORGIVENESS does require deep thought for it requires REMORSE and REPENTANCE which further requires going to confession. 

It is recognized that there are many kinds of people from a multiplicity of lifestyles around the world, even here in our own local area.  And, regardless of who they may be; our own endeavors to reach out to them as the Holy Ghost leads us, has not stopped!  Often I have been upbraided with the thoughts and historical actions of the Church and know that I walk a very thin line in the eyes of many.  Yet, I can do no more than what I know from the records of what Jesus Christ did in His walk and talk. 

Understand that I do not, as most of you know (so this is for those who do not know us well); I do not encompass the Synchrestic Ecumenistic attitudes of today’s world religious leaders and thinkers when it comes to “blending in” so as to become more acceptable.  For by doing so, I would become a follower of the Evil One who has brought about such ideas and heretical dogmas or doctrines that have been and are leading even so very many more astray from that which was initially established. 

There is a line that I will not cross.  And, what is more, as I watch many of the “Groups” at Yahoo.com and MSN.com – I am not very much appalled at what I am witness to only because those things were prophesied.  Thus, while being a member in some of them for the purposes of keeping abreast of developments, does not mean that I or those with me are members in spirit and truth whatsoever.  For it is a fact that this PROTESTANT nation has been and is falling deeper into the Great Chasm that is predicted…  The Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church is, admittedly, to be blamed for she has allowed the numerous heretical innovations, ideas and inventions to seep into the core of its life, practice and teachings to where many people of that jurisdiction fear going to a priest for confession as it had been done... And, as a result, the further distancing of Rome from the root and branch of those things that are truly Orthodox Catholic as being the ground and base for Christianity itself gives rise to the question of its failure and refusal to live a life of theology in spirit and truth.... Read more...

Yet, lest anyone think I am passing judgment; I fear more for those who are with me in spirit and truth as well as myself too.  Why?

Not a one of us, while in this life, can make claim to doing any good thing whatsoever.  For like getting into the shower to clean ourselves, so too when we step out we already are become dirtied.  That dirtiness is our sins… when we go to bed we pray for forgiveness and go to confession weekly… but when we step out of bed or the confessional, we are bombarded by the numerous variety of words and thoughts that infects our mind, our heart and soul.  Thus we are again sinful because we do dwell on them a bit, even a smidgen, and need the balm of Confession to wipe away the sin, praying that God will know our hearts by doing so. 

It is better to loose your life and to save your soul than to loose your life and your soul.

July-August 2008 Message

 

Blessings to you who are my spiritual Children and

to those who view this message, Blessings indeed in the name of

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Theotokos;

 

As some of you have already guessed, I have opted to include a synthesized form of the "Quotes From Thaddeus" into these monthly - quarterly messages so as to save time, energy and to cover the most important questions as well as to bring you up-to-date on what is happening at the International Communications Headquarters for this Jurisdiction.

 

Equally so, many of you already know my stance as regards hierarchs in this jurisdiction versus those of other jurisdictions regardless of whether or not they are "Mainline" or otherwise.  In short, no hierarch is exempt from sin! 

 

No hierarch is exempt from the many earthy or earthly problems and issues of life and living even if they are a part of those jurisdictions who practice and follow a "Financial Flow-Chart Mentality" which include, for some, an ethnic attitude concerning Patriarchal or Tomas (Decrees) allowing for Autocephaly and Autonomy.  Even given just a few of those things, neither Patriarch, Metropolitan, Archbishop, Bishop, Priest or Deacon are exempt from the things of this life and living.  There is NO Ivory Soap Box, as we may call it in the Americanized slang... or idiom... and there is no room for those with such an attitude of elitism and arrogance for such leads to an over-bloated-ness of self-importance which is harmful in itself for it defeats the SPIRITUAL things Jesus Christ provides in reaching out to those who might, could or would be parishioners in spirit and in truth!  As a result, we have found that our approach has been a gracious blessing in part for where we now reside (since 2003) and has enhanced a degree of respect, more especially when those would be parishioners find us living as they live, having to work and suffer as they work and suffer.  Not a one of us are exempt whatsoever no matter whether we were to have a large amount of donation influx or not... and, we don't have such as it is... we are "Catacomb" in approach and find it best fits the needs of those in this area.

 

Now, as to something that we received, which is not in itself alarming but raises numerous questions that many of you may have been faced with as we have over these many years... read the following snip from an e-mail of recent concerning the potential of a candidate....

 

"...from what I have read about your jurisdiction (I just read your  June 2008 report), I believe we have too many disagreements that would cause us to never be compatible and happy together.

First of all, I'm a traditional Roman Catholic who loves the real and true Catholic Faith which includes believing in all the dogmas that have been revealed to us by Holy Mother, the Church. This especially includes the "Immaculate Conception" of the Blessed Virgin Mary; Her Assumption body & soul into Heaven; Her many apparitions throughout history; the infallibility of the Pope in Faith & Morals; the fact of a place of purification of souls after death which we humans call Purgatory; and most important is the believe in Original Sin and the effects of it (concupiscence) etc, etc."

Watching the news media of late and receiving many e-mails regarding many of the things affecting this nation which involve economics as well as one's ability (or lack of it) to do many of the things normally one does to get to and from work, school, grocery shopping and even, in some instances, to church...

 

You have heard it said before and here it is again... What Russia had come out of from the Communist regime's terror... these United States of America and probably the remainder of North America, are entering into.  Is this Country being punished by God?  Many would give a resounding "Yes"!  Then, of course, there are more than ever who say "nay"... and for good reason... they are pseudo Christians at best and then there are those who have become non-christian or even Muslim converts to the Satanic religion of Mohamed...  Our last month's message indicates some of the problems associated with the Muslim (Islamic) issue in this country and several web pages at this web site show forth the proof of how the Muslim (Islamic) issue has been aggressively destroying Orthodox Christian life and living. 

 

Given the situation in North America, especially in the U.S.A., one may ask, "What Can We Do?" and the answer is the same... Get yourself to a like minded community of faithful where true spiritual and material life is centered on the morals and teachings inherent in the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ. 

 

The Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church has gone so far from the root and branch of the Spiritual and material Life and teachings of Jesus it is hard to envision their return from that which they schismed from except that those who are truly Orthodox Catholic Christians who may join with them, have or will join with them only because of those material and earthy things associated with them, not the SPIRITUAL even though much is said under disguise as being of or from the mouths of apostles in a long line of apostles.  Yet, those who are in those lines of succession, who have departed from the root and branch of Orthodox Catholic Christian teachings handed down to us through time and history, both written and oral, are no longer true apostles for their alterations and additions to the teachings cannot be counted as a part of the fold.  These many things were predicted and such predictions we are witnessing to and see coming about. 

 

Again, lest we forget, Satan is the great deceiver and he has his trained minions to duplicate the very things of Heaven.  He can therefore make to appear such as would deceive the most ardent follower of Holy Things whereby they become, unknowing to themselves, the deceptive things of the unholy.  And that is what is happening in and with the Roman Jurisdiction as it continues with its political and material actions.

 

All things of the spiritual world that come to us, seeps into and becomes a part of the material. 

 

Recently I received and e-mail in which expresses the same as I too find partial harmony with, even though it is an e-mail which expresses more the Protestant synchrestic ecumenism I and those with me are diametrically opposed to.  Read More....

 

St. Justin Popovitch was surely correct when he said, in reference to the deception of this world and being deceived...

What is left of a man when the soul is removed from his body?  A corpse!

What is left of Europe when God is torn from its body? A corpse!

With God banished from the cosmos, has it not become a corpse?

What is a man who denies the soul within him and in the world around him?

 

Nothing but molded clay, a walking coffin of clay.  The result is devastating.  Enamored of things, European man himself finally becomes a “thing”.  Personality is devalued and destroyed.  What is left is a man-thing.  There is no whole, integrated, immortal and God-like man, but simply fragments of a man, a bodily husk from which the immortal spirit has been driven out. Although this husk is burnished and adorned, it is still a husk.  European culture has deprived man of his soul; it has made him artificial and mechanical.  It is like a monstrous machine that devours men and makes hem into things.  The end result is touchingly sad and movingly tragic: man, a soulless thing among soulless things, { “Humanistic and Theanthropic Culture” in the Orthodox Church and Ecumenism, pp. 103-4}

It is better to loose your life and to save your soul than to loose your life and your soul.

June - July 2008 Message

 

The speeding Unhealthy Change World Wide

 

My dear Brothers, Sisters and spiritual children in Jesus Christ

and the Most Holy Theotokos

Here it is the middle of June 2008.  We are truly witnessing strange events in the earth.  The climate is going rampant all around the world.

Some of you, especially Bishop Ken out of Novato, California, and Bishop Carlos Florida out of the San Francisco-Bay area - - - will well recall my umpteenth pronouncements back in the 1970’s and early 1980’s in which I had said then that there would come a time in which the whole face of North America will be changing its physical appearance.  I did not say how or when, but that it would happen in very slow degrees.  I mentioned then that it was suspected that the USA and part of Canada would be torn apart by floods to where eventually, over time, the whole face of the nation would end up as island states if anything at all.  I said… “It can or will happen,” I didn’t say, “It is happening!” 

I will not say that what I had predicted in those times of the past is coming about yet.  But that what we are witnessing surely provides much for thought about God’s judgment on this nation and this world.  For this world's climate is held in the palm of God's hands, His creation.  We cannot blame God for what we, human kind, creates and does for it is so done by the operation of Free Will... and God will not interfere when we loose life for it was our own doing or there time to be removed from this life. 

The flooding to the degree that has been happening grows worse year by year… we’ve seen flooding before… yet each year the flooding of various areas becomes a bit worse… in increments and degrees.  Will it eventually lead to the Great Lakes over flowing into the Mississippi and that being over engorged to where flooding will occur in times to come?  I don’t know. 

Will the rain cause for the flooding to the extent that the waters will not drain off at some point in time to where the land will not return to what we have known it to be?  That too I do not know… But something similar will happen…

This nation is actually on the track toward perdition because it’s society has taken on the image of the rest of the world with all its “Political Correctness” disease, its disease of scholasticism to where the annals of history are being re-written to accommodate a kind of Christianity that is only a “Pseudo Christianity” at best and the ring leaders are not only in the Roman Vatican, but at the head of the World Council of Churches and World Council of Bishops… They are your cultic Protestants who spearhead and predominantly control the World Council of Churches while engorging their pocket books with a fraudulent brand of “Christianity” here in the United States of America and Canada…Yes! I said it!  A fraudulent ideology that is far from the theological witness of the Holy Apostles and their true spiritual (and material) successors down through time and history to present day times.

Greetings and Blessings To

Those who have ears to hear

and eyes to see from within,

and to all who are my spiritual

children in the Vineyard of Jesus Christ

and the Most Holy Theotokos, Amen!

 

Pascha (Easter) celebrations for Orthodox Catholics are completing as We write this.  Next month comes Mother's Day. And, as we look behind, we also look ahead.

 

Many of us know that the times ahead are not going to be easy no matter who becomes the next President of these United States of America.  Much damage to this country has been done.  Our economic stability is no more. 

 

Our educational systems are becoming babysitting institutions, even for those institutions of higher learning except you pay such a high price.  The comparison of Grades and graduates with those of other countries is appalling. Our intellectual properties and people are being sent overseas East and West. 

 

Even the candidates running for elected office leave a lot to be desired (Just an opinion of some things you may wish to view as a learning curve experience - follow the links for more....I am not, personally speaking, one who believes in or sticks to civil political parties... but I think watching a Soap Opera would prove more intriguing... Yet, another interesting tid-bit you find rather interesting is provided... ).

 

This country is no longer the prestigious country that was once looked up to for direction or guidance but for hand-outs and to be taken advantage of. 

 

The HIV/AIDS program under "HRSA" is on the verge of being changed, if not dismantled, which demeans and takes away from the Ryan White Act. (Learn more...)

 

We are a country that is slowly becoming similar to some third world countries, more especially is this true when the resident president has allowed for the rape and plunder of this country to continue from previous sitting presidents except this one has done much, much more it would appear. Are we hard on President Bush?  He is not alone and there is enough blame to go around and that includes the sitting Vice President, Cheney too...

 

What does this have to do with those things spiritual, of religion? An awful lot does it have to do with all things of Faith! Nothing is as important to the evolving material blessings of this country and this world than by the Hand of God upon us and what we do or fail to do.  For it is God, the Source of all Life and Abundance, that we owe much to.  If we do not abide by His Word, in and through Jesus Christ, because we have FREE WILL.... and if we make wrong choices which lead away from Him... we shall and we are suffering the inevitable consequences.  And that is exactly what is happening.  The altering of the Faith handed down to us from the Holy Apostles to these present times has been an on-going process thanks to the Evil One who uses those who have imbibed of heretical doctrines and dogma, worship and every day actions as well. 

 

The Book of Revelation (St. John) tells much in rather allegorical means.  Yet, it was Jesus Christ who did, in fact, speak in such a way because many who heard Him were not ready to know the truth!  So it is today too.  There are many who imbibe of false and heretical doctrines and dogma falsely or errantly believing that the Christian, the Jew, the Muslim, the pagan... all worship the same God.  When the truth is that it is a false and misleading understanding and statement that is being sent out to the world by the Evil One through such as many Pentecostals, Church of Christ, Methodists, Mormons, even now including some of the Roman Catholics and numerous others. 

 

We see this locally in Luna County, New Mexico as others have reported observing the same in their own areas from the East Coast to the West Coast, the northern most part of this continent to the southern reaches as well.

 

What can any of us do?  Not all things are material that is spiraling downward.  Religious institutions are become the harbingers of those things warned about in Holy Scripture and by many a true Patristic witness such as St. John Maximovitch and even blessed Father Seraphim Rose and many before them.  We have entered the times predicated by Father Seraphim's "Religion of the Future". 

 

New self-made jurisdictions are arising under the false pretense that they are either "Orthodox" or "Old Roman Catholic" "Independent" this and "Non-denominational" that - etc. - etc. - etc.  And you are not even aware of what is going on.  Some of them are surely worthy of their endeavors to reshape themselves because of sins they have committed for no Jurisdiction of the One, Holy, Orthodox, Catholic and Apostolic Church is exempt from making mistakes, from committing sins and offenses against God and man alike... And, because the Church is truly a Spiritual Hospital... they must be given the Right to re-shape themselves in such a way whereby true Repentance is shown forth with Truth, honesty; not elitism or synchrestic ecumenical approaches that go against all that the Church has taught and believed.

 

With all that has been thus far said... I leave it to you to go and take the time to re-read this missive, follow the links... then pray and meditate on those very things.

 

With Mother's Day ahead (here in the United States of America) we should consider not only our own mothers (living and reposed) but one who is the most Holy Theotokos ever Virgin Mary herself (the Mother of Our Lord and Savior and for whom we are called 'Christian' - being followers of Jesus Christ) and who is intercessor for all of us who are truly and with deep reverence, struggling in this life for the life to come.  Let us take guidance from the Most Holy Theotokos. And, as for Mother's Day, I hopefully shall be posting something being prepared for that special Sunday...

Instead of the usual letter a special posting has been made concerning an alarming situation that exists within the World Wide Orthodoxy (aka: Orthodox Church, Orthodox Church of Christ, Orthodox Catholic Christianity) of the One, Holy, Orthodox, Catholic and Apostolic Church established by Jesus Christ, the Holy Apostles, Martyrs, Saints and Patristic Fathers which encompass so very much information.  The special article posted is lengthy and does not do justice to all that should be covered, but hits upon main points while using, in part, this Jurisdiction as an example.  You may wish to save the article to computer for later reading to digest is relevance and importance - - - click on the following link:

 

Regarding Orthodox Catholic Christianity, Hierarchs, Ethnic Divide, Politics and cults

 

 

February-March 2008 Message

 

Blessings to you who are my spiritual Children and

to those who view this message, Blessings indeed in the name of

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Theotokos;

 

            As I watch the close of a new T.V. series, I have ringing through my mind a statement, “The world is insane” and I have to admit that what we are looking at going on through out this world of ours in these present times, the world is truly become insane.  Yet, even our parents and grandparents thought so in their times as well. What preserves this world from going over the brink of insanity into oblivion?  That you must ask yourself.  I have.

 

            I find that each generation has looked at the world and claimed it was going insane.  Yet, the resolvance to that question is found in its people, in a people of true faith.  When I say, “…of True Faith,” I mean what it means, “True Faith” in one’s thoughts, in one’s words and in one’s day-to-day practice.

 

In these present times we have a new religious fervor on-going along with a new religion that began after Christianity had begun and which has borrowed much of Christianity’s most basic themes as its own, perverting those Christian themes to such an extent that it is known today as Islam with its people known as Muslims. 

 

The new religious fervor of Christians is based on a developing re-shaping of Christianity by those who are cultic perverters of Christianity; who are incapable and unable to stay true to the initial teachings and life established by Jesus Christ, His Holy Apostles and those who gave us the written word, the Holy Bible.  Those cultic perverters have been and continue to re-write the Holy Bible and are attempting to re-shape Christianity to accommodate their stunted forms of belief which is away from the way in which it was given.  They claim their re-writing, their revisions are to keep pace with the unfolding changes of syntax and language.  The real reasons are because they want self-image, power and control by reshaping the way one views the written word as given us because it does not fit in with their cultic beliefs. These Christian cultic perverters are no different than those Islamic extremists who have called a “Jihad” on all others.  The Christian cultic perverters have, without using the words, created a “Jihad” on all things Catholic, Orthodox and Roman, except the roman jurisdiction of the Catholic Church through its Roman Bishop (Pope) have caved in to them and their heretical teachings.

 

            It is said that there are ‘peaceful’ Muslims.  After having reviewed the Koran, talking with those who know the Koran better than myself, it is impossible for there being anyone who is a Muslim (religion of Islam) to be truly peaceful except to those of their own stunted sect of Islam.  I am sure that those Muslims who claim they are peaceful truly believe they are!  But, the Koran speaks to them, through their many Mullahs, as to what is peaceful.  The Koran is very specific in its surahs (verses) and it is not good for any people of other religions, even for Muslims of their various sects.

 

            A Muslim does not have to honor any written or oral agreements with anyone who is not of the religion of Allah, Islam.  If a country is Islamic, that country does not have to honor any written agreements it makes with non-Islamic countries whatsoever if that Islamic country is dominated in its government by the laws of Islam’s quoran (Koran).  Not one Muslim has to respect any individual of another religion unless they be a Muslim.  Even then, they do not have to respect each other.  Why?  Because it is their belief that to die, by the hands of another Muslim or even so-called “infidels” (Infidels = those who are not Muslims) or 'not of the Islamic religion' establish by their satanic inspired Mohammed, who is believed by them to be a Prophet, is to understood as their going to a heavenly bliss of some sort.   

 

            Regardless of how one wants to interpret any of the surahs (verses) of the Koran, the fact of the matter is that the religion of Islam is not peaceful even for their own people unless they follow their Mullahs orders of the sect they belong to. The evidence of this is seen on each nightly news reports about what is happening in Afghanistan and Iraq.  And, even here in the United States, there are to many Muslims who may be “sleepers” whether they know it or not!  Why?  Read what I’ve already said. 

 

    Islam is not a religion of “Peace” whatsoever. 

 

    If one is true to their belief, they MUST abide by their teachings as provided by their Islamic holy book, the (Quoran) Koran.  If any part of the U.S.A. were to become Muslim controlled, they will take on a whole new appearance and their action will become even more of that which we see is happening in England, in France and other countries where their foothold as Muslims is causing for even history to be changed and abbreviated because Muslims are inherently against Jews and Christians, especially if Muslim community is become the majority in a given area. 

 

    Many an Arabic country is the evidence of these facts and such happens to every single country the Muslims gain control of or move into.  Look at what has happened to Turkey and what has happened to the oldest of Christianity’s roots, the Orthodox Patriarchate of Constantinople. 

 

Our President of the United States knows most of these thing but won’t tell you otherwise because of the way in which the Constitution of the U.S.A. is established and actually there is little to nothing his office can do to slow the growth of the Muslim horde or to prevent their religion on our soil.  As a result, he calls them 'peaceful'  as they want to be known.  It is a falsehood, a fabrication which both history and evidence of what is happening around the world clearly show. The destruction of this once great nation has already begun and it is from the inside more than from the outside.  What communism could not accomplish under the Old Russian regime, the Muslims are doing today.

 

I recall a movie of many years ago about the destruction of Rome.  I remember that after the reigning emperor had been killed in the arena because he took the challenge by a centurion soldier much favored by the other military men; the hero of the story was asked if he would take the crown being offered him by the military men and people in the stands.  When he said, “No,” you hear then how the highest remaining member of the former Emperor’s court shouted, “How much will you give me for the Emperor’s crown and authority?”  This is similar to what has begun in the United States with the vast number of “American borne” companies going over-seas, the creation of NAFTA and much more.  Soon it will be a country no longer American.  Let’s go a bit further about this through our experiences in what we see about the new religion of Islam in our land. Take a quick look at an article already on our website (be sure to hit your back button to return) which has a lot to do with more than just the Muslim horde, but with all things having to do with illegal immigration as well.  Those who are illegal immigrants from the south of our border, believe themselves to be 'good Christians'.  But that is not so true as one would think as we have already shown. 

 

Many of the new Muslims in this country are coming straight out of prison because the people in those prisons have been searching for different kinds of cultural and religious identity that sets them apart from the rest of the country in order to make them something and someone different than the rest. Most of them are come from an ethnic background which has given rise to calling them African Americans instead of American Blacks.  Dress styles mimic Muslim dress styles with the ‘gang-banger’ loose fitting thugs of inner city hooligans.  Study the cause for the dress style of Muslims today and you understand the cause for the baggy pants.  Even today’s music has become affected by this new style of Muslim from prison, the gangsta-rap style…. The new fad which has been, and is, affecting the very things normally considered most immoral and spiritually ill to the soul of faithful Christians has been on-going for some time, under your very nose.  Destruction can be and is believed to be ongoing from within the country more than from the outside. 

 

The very laws of the land are being re-shaped to make this country appear as a law abiding country… laws that rely more on gossip, hearsay evidence without viable or solid evidence. 

 

            So the real question must now come down to those citizens who are of Christian and Jewish belief.  What can they do?  First off, Christianity requires that we, as Christians, preserve and defend those of God’s chosen, the Jewish people. 

 

    We may not necessarily consider them as true believing Jews in their Jewish faith, some even believing that because of Jesus Christ’s life and teachings, the Jews of these times are no longer a people of God’s chosen because they are, by their ethnicity, killers of Jesus Christ.  That is wrong and it most certainly does not fit in with the image and teachings of Jesus Christ, in fact it goes against His life and Teachings.  Thus, we must, as Christians, protect the Jewish people. 

 

    We may not even agree with the politics of the nation of Israel. But our own government has dictated to Israel for so long now, having pushed them into giving up some or parts of their homeland with such tenacity that one can only wonder what our country’s motives are.  It takes not rocket scientist to figure that one out.  But that is not really our concern in this writing. 

 

    What is our concern is the insanity of this world and what we, as Christians, should be doing or what is not being done in this country.  Remember what Jesus Christ taught about the ‘beam in one’s own eye before trying to take the speck out of one’s neighbor’?  It applies to this county as well, as a nation, as it applies also to individuals.

 

            There is more than just the concern about the Muslim horde that is of concern.  Take a deep look at the legal versus illegal immigration problem and the American Roman Catholic Jurisdictions enterprising ways as well as the enterprising ways our government attempts to control your thinking.  Take a look at how the Mexican communities have been stirred with the false belief that they are Christian when they enter illegally. 

           

            Even on the local levels across the country we can see the reshaping of the governmental facade which disenfranchises the poor more and more, reshapes the education system.  Even so, reshaping the idea of what it means to be moral according to cultic Protestantism's heretical, bleeding heart, standards where all things "Catholic" are to be violated and turned from... unless they, the "Catholics" (Roman) have given in to their aggressive perversions of truth!  If one follows the 'Whore of Babylon' then one is safe for they are one with the cultic perverters of spiritual and material truth!

 

            The end of this nation is become a selling out of America and those politicians running for the office of President are no better than many of the last several generation of Presidents who have brought about and set the standards for destruction of this nation and a leading nation for the destruction of this world as prophesied in the Book of Revelation. 

 

            The preservation of one’s soul over that of the body is the most important concern we should have as true Christians of the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith which is the root of all things Christian that the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church schismed from.  That can only be accomplished by digging deeper into and living what it means to truly be a Christian, a follower and practitioner of the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ.

 

Christianity is rooted and grounded in Orthodox Catholic Christianity.  It is bound only in those jurisdictions of Orthodoxy who have not given in to the power and glory of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church.  To give in to the dictates of the Roman Jurisdiction is to imbibe of the very thing warned about in the Book of Revelation which leads to more than just a One World Government, but to a One World Church that is already being re-shaped as we have shown. 

 

            You can not have the best of both worlds, this life and the next, unless you practice and understand what it means to be a true Christian which is bound hand and foot, heart, mind, body and soul to all things truly Orthodox Catholic. 

 

            If you have ears to hear and eyes to see, use them.  For such things are of the spirit and not the flesh.

Regarding Orthodox Catholic Christianity, Hierarchs, Ethnic Divide, Politics and cults

 

 

 

January - February 2008

 

Blessings to each of you who view this Message; and,

Blessings to all my spiritual children far and near in the Holy

Name of +Jesus Christ, Our Lord, Our Savior

and the Most Holy Theotokos, Mary ever-virgin…

Blessings to each of you indeed:

 

    Now that the New Year has truly begun, we are a bit perplexed by the many things on-going that are extensions of Satan and his minions through out the world and even, more especially, locally of which we use as an example.  Yet, I am reminded of something from St. Ignatius Brianchaninov who sets the tone and the temper for what we are all undoubtedly facing in these times of entry into the End Times.

 

   Do not worry about people – they are the instruments of Providence!  These instruments are blind, and of themselves have no power at all, no movement whatsoever.  Thou couldest have no power at all against Me, said the Lord to Pilate, except it were given thee from above (John 19:11) – although Pilate, led by human judgment, declared and affirmed (and, without any doubt, all who were led by such judgment were in agreement with him!) that he had power to crucify the prisoner standing before him, and power to release Him. 

 

   Do not take pains over any dealings with people, over any justifications before them!  Such dealings and justifications only destroy peace of heart - - - they bring no benefit at all.  Feeble people – flowers that appear for a short time on the surface of the earth!  You imagine much about yourselves; you attribute much to yourselves – but you are feeble people!  You are respected, with absolute power, but at the same time you do not cease to be instruments – blind instruments, nothing but instruments!  And, you do not even see, do not even know that you are instruments!  You are despotic, but you cannot help but receive the reward for your deeds!  But in the endlessly wise judgments of God these despots are agents without the slightest authority, with no independence at all.  Jesus of Nazareth, says the holy Apostle Peter to the Jews, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain (Acts 2:23).  I know that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.  But those things, which God before had showed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, He hath so fulfilled (Acts 3:17-18).  In the works of God’s Providence, people are blind instruments.  It was for this reason that the Lord did not vouchsafe an answer to people who were, to all appearances, invested with the total power!  It was for this reason that He called the cup – prepared by malefactors, by demons both fleshless and bodily - - the cup given Him by the Father.

 

   Receive these lines as the echo of a soul in sympathy with you and each of you who read them, for you are co-sufferers in the many sorrows that we too face and earnestly wish you consolation from God.

 

   I, for my unworthy repentant self, can do little to change the spiritual reality of what lies ahead for each one of us who stay strong in the faith as given us by our Lord and Savior and His Holy Apostles, from whom I also am an apostle in a long line down through time and history, an Apostle in the vineyard.  I am most vocal and most aggressive to be sure (II Tim. 4:2-5*) because I find that it behooves such actions on my (and our) own part to impart the blessings of Jesus Christ upon those who, out of sincerity and truth, seek His blessings who are hungry for spiritual truth and not that which is phony, a fraud, as invented by the satanic demons who have brought you many denominations.  We are not a denomination whatsoever and never have been.  We are a part of the authentic Church from which even the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church has departed as time and history declares and shows. 

 

   As bishops, regardless of administrative rank along with our clergy of various degrees; are required to manifest all that we can according to our individual nature and degree of ability to provide a safe harbor, a refuge for thirsting minds, hearts and souls.  That means we cannot sit idly by and do nothing to aide and assist all of God’s children no matter whom they are or from what faith or walk of life they may come from.  While we must ardently and aggressively defend against heresies; being the false doctrines and dogma of denominations, since we are a part of the Church established by Jesus Christ Himself, we cannot be idle in our work to help people, as individuals, even if they are members of those very same cults.

 

   If you are a lay brother or sister in the vineyard… this also applies to you too.  You cannot sit idle and allow the hands of those seeking mammon to do evil against those who have little to no means of defense.  Those who are affected by such endeavors by civil authorities are those who lack education, lack self-esteem, lack financial ability to fight, lack spiritual truth, lack physical health, and much more. 

 

   According to the Roman West, all bishops are ‘more or less’ “princes of the Church” which equates to the “brides and bridegrooms of Christ” – yet… in the Orthodox East of which we, in the west, are a part of - - - we are Apostles above princes and popes.  We have a duty and an obligation to protect people of every stripe who are sincere in their desire to be ONE in Christ and are open! 

 

   Those in secular authority are no different than what has been said above about the actions and decisions of Pilate who issued the orders that brought about His crucifixion.  God had all to do with that authority the same as He has today with those who sit in authority and judgment over all things civil in these times.  It matters not if they be law enforcement personnel such as Sheriff’s, police or otherwise.  God allows by His Providence for them to fulfill His plan of Salvation more thoroughly by their misbegotten (sometimes abusive) words and deeds. 

 

  These are some of the reasons for why an article entitled “Stranger Dangers than a Stranger - What I've Seen & Heard or What they Don't tell you in  THE LIBERTY PRESS ” was posted when we received it, along with a cover letter to the Luna County Sheriff's Office of New Mexico. 

 

    [UPDATED: As of Saturday, 1/19/2008, we have counted the numerous pieces of communication that we have received concerning the antics and actions of those involved in the article.  Over 138 pieces of communications telling us that we are doing the "right, true and correct" thing to show forth the extent of the 'ALLEGED' corruption in Luna County, New Mexico and those who are involved in aiding that corruption, pertaining to publishers of  THE LIBERTY PRESS.  Equally so, there may be news pertaining to the Deming, New Mexico (County Seat) for Luna County - - - it's Detention Center's alleged engagement in corruption and illegal activities on inmates as well. ]

 

    Also another article which was updated recently entitled “A Hate Crime Being Perpetrated” (this particular article may be a bit confusing to those who are unaware as to who all the players in his scenario are) among other articles at www.apostle1.com and www.lunacountyfreedom.com ..The subjects in those articles (among many others) have a lot to do not only with the unfolding events of these End Times, but assuredly provides evidence of the need for the sharpest rebuke (II Tim. 4:2-5*) possible regarding heresies, heretics, those seeking mammon, self-image, power and control; are involved in a form of greed that is hurting the underprivileged, the elderly, those suffering health issues, the uneducated and many others.  While we cannot and must not deprive individuals from that which we may (or may not) be able to provide them with our whole hearts,  minds and hands as possible, even though they may even be members of those heretical denominations, the true Church cannot and must not turn a deaf ear or allow for blind away from them when they ask for sincere help. 

 

    The Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ show us that He did, in fact, help and heal many who later turned against Him; for He was and is all-knowing.  He is our example, He is the Way!  He is the Truth!  He is the Light and Life of all of us!   As long as we draw our breath, even our last, we cannot and must not turn those who, out of sincerity, come to us.

 

   We cannot and must not take the "cultic" Protestant view that “we are saved” for otherwise we would not be in this earthy life as we are.  We may “Hope” that we are saved.  But to presume and assume that we are already saved suggest something so horrendous because the allegorical statements regarding "saved" in Holy Scripture are allegorical in themselves.  There is a hidden meaning which comes to us through oral teachings still being handed down through time and history from the Holy Apostles to us in these times as also promulgated by the Holy Ghost. 

 

    This modern day environment is the ground upon which we must struggle out of pain of heart for the very faith once and all delivered unto us.  As such, we can fall, we can and do sin.  Thus, we are not saved.  For God gave us Free Will; at any time during this earthly sojourn we can and will fall even further unless we commit ourselves to true repentance, not the idle idea of repentance that Protestants have been and are saying that all one needs to do is to just pray to God in order to receive "Forgiveness".  That is only part of the truth and they who say so today only know part of spiritual truth.  We must constantly, daily, struggle out of pain of heart for the faith by our words, our thoughts and our actions.  For this coming year… make no resolution for they will more likely than not be broken in due time.  Constantly commit yourself to spiritual and material struggle in repentance and receiving the Holy Mysteries for strength.

 

   He, the Almighty, does not interfere with our Free Will unless we invite Him into our lives.  And even then, because of Free Will, we do falter either intentionally or unintentionally.  Such is the situation with many who proclaim themselves as Mormons (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints), the Pentecostals and Jehovah’s Witnesses and many others.  Their false and heretical doctrines and dogmas are leading many into the eternal inferno of hell.  Read: Who are the Modern Day Pharisees and Sadducees who abuse the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ? and  NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN THE FORMATON OF The Religion of the Future as well as MISSIONARY CONVERSATIONS WITH PROTESTANT SECTARIANS  and A Reply to Protestant Sectarians We too have to wonder: Is Christianity Collapsing - Part 1 & 2 ?

 

   As a result of those very same heretical doctrines and dogmas, many are able to align themselves with others of the same kind who work in law enforcement agencies, in county and city agencies and offices as well as communication companies (quietly, without court orders, intermittently tapping into one’s telephone line without knowledge of their higher ups unless they too are a part of the heresies on-going) as a means to NETWORK subversively, in order to cause and bring damage upon many who are CATHOLIC.  Their strangle-hold goes further into the political spectrum of politics where questionable persons or people are elected sometimes by deceitful actions too.

 

   In one such instance of which we speak thus far, it is opined that they issue a publication locally known as THE LIBERTY PRESS with links into the questionable organization called the MINUTEMEN out of Arizona and New Mexico too.  Their organizational NETWORKING to promote their heretical doctrines and dogmas either directly or indirectly by lip-service alone is even suspected, it is alleged, as the LIBERTY ARIZONA and LIBERTY NEW MEXICO website operated by highly suspicious persons who have escaped, it is further alleged, from being fined for violations of some ordinances which they were actually benefiting from because they had been caught selling out the people of Luna County, New Mexico to the Commissar’s  of Luna County who are suspected of having violated the rights of voters who had at one meeting fired them from office.  But, as was also pointed out recently, Luna County, New Mexico is only an example of what is taking place in many other states and counties through out the United States of America too.  It was, after all, reported in the Albuquerque Journal last year that Luna County, New Mexico was the leader of three New Mexico Counties being investigated for extensive corruption.  Yet, when the Governor's Office (Bill Richardson) was asked to investigate and take corrective action; they blatantly refused because, they said, "It is a local issue".  That is the escape phrase to CYA (Cover one's dairy-aire) one's self due to their political ties as it has been known to exist even at the highest levels of national government. 

 

   Those of whom we are talking about are, mostly, anti-christian in both spirit and truth (they don’t even know or understand they are 'anti-christian' or what they are doing except to protect themselves, gain image and self-importance, power and control) and against anything and practically everything that is CATHOLIC from which the Roman Jurisdiction of the West had officially departed in 1054 A.D. (although the antics of their actions began earlier than that)…

 

   Now, with the Bishop of Rome attempting to bring in all their cultic protestant bastard children as evidenced by their actions of recent months of 2007 and 2008, it goes to the evidence of what is in store for the times ahead leading to the ONE WORLD CHURCH, as the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church heads toward oblivion as being more and more a Protestant stronghold through its syncretism energies and endeavors.  To placate those of the old beliefs and ways, their allowance for the reintegration of the old liturgies that parishioners of the Roman Jurisdiction had once been used to, is a façade of enormous psychological proportion.  But will that be enough?  Hardly!

 

   Thus, the activities of those who are NETWORKING cultic Protestants continue onward, leading many into the great abyss. 

 

   Our work must be one of struggle out of pain of heart to save as many as we can through our work in both the spiritual and material areas, even for those who (as a people, as individuals) are held in bondage to those very same cultic and heretical beliefs or practices.  For us to sit idly by as so-called ‘humble’ servants would reflect disagreement with Jesus Christ's Life and Teachings - - - He who chased even the money changers out of the Temple of His Father’s House in the times He walked the earth.

 

    According to your nature and degree of understanding; being observant and responsible to daily practice in word and action, in thought and heart; may you be blessed.

                    Metropolitan Archbishop, Archabbot, Primate

* II Tim 4:2-5 - …preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teachings.  For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths. – And, it is the “myths” that Pentecostals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons and other cultic doctrines and dogma have come about while misusing and abusing the written WORD to suit their mis-beguided and misbegotten denominational structures that has grown so much since their inceptions that the world has turned and spurned the truth. 

 

    The numerous sex scandals and other actions that have been on-going through out the world in these times is brought about because those whom we have mentioned who are “cults” and “cultic” (not necessarily the people of those denominations, but their leaders, so-called ministers and pastors) have intentionally sought the weakest link in the true Church established by Jesus Christ from which they (cults) departed.  While truth is a terrible thing to those who fail or refuse to be truthful and follow truth, there are those who use and abuse people to bring about economic disaster to the true church by stealth to gain self-image and prominence on the world stage which drives their obtaining ‘new converts’ from the true Church. 

 

    Those who were driven into their (cultic) arms are those who also were the weakest faithful, parishioners, who are the ‘Go to Church on Sunday types, but the rest of the time their faith does not hold true by their words and actions’.  The Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church which schismed (separated) from the root and branch of Christianity (established by Jesus Christ and the Holy Apostles) which is today known and called “Orthodox” (ie: Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Ukrainian Orthodox, American Orthodox, etc.) have imbibed of the heretical fruit of cultists by allowing and inviting those bastard children to return, with all their bags and baggage, into the arms of the Roman Jurisdiction because of their dwindling numbers.  This is the greed of mammon, self-image, power and politics of man.  In the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church today the scoreboard will read “Cultics” = 1 “Romans” = 2 … Who is really fooling who?  Those Orthodox jurisdictions that snuggle closer to the “Roman” gesture of reconciliation and join with them have also become imbibers of the fruit that leads to a drunkenness from which the cup is Satan’s gall.

Dear Reader:

The Vine & Crossroads Newsletter is a new endeavor which will be sent out through e-mail for those who we hope will be receptive to our endeavors to bring you information & news concerning not only our Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith, but concerning all that may have to do with your Religious, Civil and Legal Rights to worship and daily practice your faith.  However, at www.apostle1.com we have, as some of you know the DAILY NEWS Section too and we are seeking your help too!

Some who may be affected by what is happening in the USA, North, and South America as well as around the world are more than just faithful parishioners of this Jurisdiction (as we are scattered), but clergy from all walks of life and churches too! This is for them as well, even if they are not part of our Jurisdiction or even our faith!

We feel that when informed, you can make better decisions toward maintaining your rights of religious bearing as well as, hopefully, your civil rights too.  Yet, depending on the country in which you reside, even if it be a State or Province of that country; you may find you will eventually be limited from worshiping and speaking about your faith!

So, this struggle that we present as our first newsletter is one out of pain of heart for the faith once and for all delivered by Jesus Christ, the Holy Apostles and Patristic Fathers.

Inasmuch as the American Orthodox Church and the North American Orthodox Church is one Jurisdiction of World Wide Orthodoxy; we believe that since our dioceses and parishes are scattered; you need to know what is going on. 

Our Vladyka +Thaddeus (Metropolitan Archbishop) has granted us permission to provide this endeavor for you to review and comment on with hopes that you will join with us in providing current information and news...

Included in our newsletters will include information taken from our Western Orthodox Theological Institute (WOTI) and other areas to aide and reaffirm your spiritual and material understandings. 

Life itself is a religious experience whether or not you go to church on Sunday or stay at home... even if you do not believe in the root, ground and base of all things CHRISTIAN (follower of Jesus Christ) which is established in Orthodox Catholic Christianity itself ... you may find article and information important or interesting to your areas of life and living.

Religious News, Environmental News (about the earth and saving our planet's resources), Electronic,  digital or computer news pertaining to those who want to know what to do to keep their computer bug free and spam free.

Sometimes a news item or information that may be sent to us contains information not known to us as being personal or sensitive.  Regrettably we are not aware of that information being what it is to you... Please, when sending us e-mail for particular information to be removed, highlight the address of the particular web page in your browser's address bar for that page.  Click once on the browser address bar to highlight that whole address which usually begins with {http://www.apostle1.com/ and the name or identification of the web page you are on }.... This is important!  Highly Important information to us if we are to provide any kind of assistance to you.  As you know, this web site contains hundreds of web pages.  As a result of trying to serve the needs of viewers, it becomes most difficult for any one person to accommodate such  e-mail requests unless the information is provided...

 

Without that particular information, your request will automatically be denied. 

 

Ever since a mentally challenged individual "fraudulently" (as it is opined, and alleged) brought an action in  a local Luna County, New Mexico District Court against our Vlaydka and those with him in spirit and in truth, we are still culling the web site for potential problems relating directly to her as she and those who she is with had published a rather dishonorable news rage with alleged white supremist (Nazi?) connections who hate anything "Catholic" (be it of the Roman or Orthodox Catholic Jurisdictions).

Why News for an Orthodox Catholic Christian Church Website?

Daily News is very important to those who are true Orthodox Catholic Christians.  For without knowing or gaining information for understanding about what is happening in one's local area and around the world, you could  find yourself faced with denied services in the secular area, lack of income, even (although it sounds far-fetched) ability to worship openly for the time is not far off when all will have to decide if they wish to follow the Anti-Christ through the One World Church and One World Government as prophesied by the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options. 

 

Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for, these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and far too many more to list. 

 

Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered.  It is not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers" who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for they exist in these present times too.

 

Events are already rushing toward that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.  Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the more informed observer may become apparent. 

Those little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming a major focus in worship, and more. 

We ask you, if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed (of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or "Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT? 

Here in North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering into.  And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its jurisdiction....   And, we believe this also holds true for many who are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."

- Blessed St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco

 

So, as said, Daily News is very important to the true Orthodox Catholic Christian.
