Quotes From Father +Thaddeus   

 

December 2012

 

 

Beloved Brothers and Sisters, my spiritual

sons and daughters, and those viewing this message,

Greetings in the Name of the +Father, the +Son, Jesus Christ,

and the +Holy Ghost (Spirit)... Amen!

 

    It is sometimes difficult, if not devastating, to write you about many things spiritual and how our material world, our thoughts, our actions and words affect others including our inner self, our spiritual development because many do not heed these things or ask questions. 

 

    With the forthcoming celebration of our Lord and Savior's nativity, I can only ask, what are you going to give Him on his birthday?  What can you give that surpasses any gift we can possibly give to any one else?  Think about that!  Each one who can answer the question will find that while it may appear and seem that the answer would be the same for all of us, it is not true.  Each of us have qualities, gifts, faults and sins that are particular to each one... although they can all be categorized and lumped into various kinds of sins... the fact of the matter is that they are SINS!  What therefore can you give as a special gift this year?

 

    My writing you this message is a gift in and of itself if you but stop to think about it.  A gift that can and should awaken you within.. and rekindle that fire, that spirit of love, compassion, understanding and more as a gift for neighbor, enemy, and many others too.  For when you are aware of your faults and sins, you do, hopefully, what is right to become whole in spirit and in truth.  Go to Confession, do penance, ask for forgiveness from those who you may have harmed intentionally or said vile words against... Pray seriously for each one of them and for yourself... then, partake in the Holy Mysteries and become a bright beacon of love, compassion and understanding by the power and love of the Holy Spirit born anew within you.

 

    My the Joy of Our Savior's nativity awaken anew in you and me, the gift given us in this life for the life to hopefully come for those who work from within... Amen!

    Blessing you with good thoughts and many prayers... asking for your prayers for this repentant unworthy one in the vineyard of this life, I am;

+ Joseph Thaddeus (Stanford) 

The most unworthy repentant sinner and fool for Jesus Christ in the vineyard  of this life!

You who view this message

and all who are my spiritual Children;

Blessings of the +Father, the +Son, Jesus Christ,

and the +Holy Ghost (Spirit)...

    I am writing this missive ahead of time, although exactly when it will be posted is any one's guess at this point in time.  With Flu season and old age gripping many of us... there have been, if you've viewed the DAILY NEWS section, a hiccup of sorts in our postings. 

    Having to "unfriend" someone from my facebook account for reasons of "trust" I find it a topic that needs to be addressed with regards to the fact it is a part of why we are called "Christians" (as followers of the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ)... and, to be honest... if someone feels they cannot TRUST you or that you feel you cannot TRUST them... remove them insofar as you can from communication on the internet except e-mail... for otherwise you are aiding and abetting the "PREJUDICE MAKES PRISONERS OF THE HATED AND THE HATER!" ... For the understanding of what TRUST means, involves accepting all who you accept as "Friend" and therefore you Trust that person!  That is the way Jesus Christ is... He accepts us!  Trusts in our goal to live and breathe His Life and Teachings insofar as we are able to do, according to our nature and degree of ability... To say "friend" but distrusting them goes against "Friend" and "Trust" for both go hand-n-hand!  Jesus Christ is my friend and yours too... and those who we accept as Friend are ones we place Trust in for they Trust Jesus Christ and know that we as humans have many faults and frailties, thus when we, as the individual we are, will strive to overcome those faults and frailties when we become inwardly aware of them... attempting to become "humane" first and "Holy" second... for one cannot be Holy without first understanding and striving to be humane! 

    Being a "Friend" and therefore someone in whom "Trust" is normally inculcated... means we know that we help each other eradicate our human imperfections, our errors, our faults, our very sins... Thus a "friend" who helps you, also knows they too can count on you with their struggle in this life for the life to come which is the way of Jesus Christ! 

    Far too many people these days have become so engrossed in electronic/digital games and gaming that they often forget the path we are on ... forgetting the purpose of this life... and forgetting that our "friend(s)" have placed their "Trust" in us as they have placed their LIFE-TRUST in Jesus Christ Himself first and us, as individuals, second.  That "TRUST" is all encompassing and all inclusive of the Life and Teachings of Our Very Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Anything less, is naught!  

    Thus "Friend" is not just a fair-weather friend...  A friend whose love for the gifts s/he is benefiting from. are given by our Lord Himself no matter how unworthy we are of them because of our faults, frailties, mistakes, our very sins!  All to often the word "Friend" has been used in a way in which it means little to many... thus our values are skewered!  Our very belief and claim to being "Christian" (as a follower of the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ) is less than what it should be... may be a lie ? ? ?   Any one can call themselves "Christian" but not be "Christian" in spirit and truth!  If one calls on the very name of JESUS CHRIST in their heart and mind, and in TRUE SINCERE PRAYER... becomes more and more a TRUSTED FRIEND of His and all others who equally understand what being "CHRISTIAN" truly means... Truly this is a struggle in this life for the life to come...

    Think about this, please... and search the N.T. Gospel accounts and find out who is or is not a Friend of Jesus Christ and apply the same to yourself and to those who you may presently call "Friend" ... The answer(s) you get may startle you!

    I am very eager to have you reply if you wish... the e-mail address "Primary" is below...

    Blessing you with good thoughts and many prayers... asking for your prayers for this repentant unworthy one in the vineyard of this life, I am;

May Joy and the Blessings 

of the +Father,

and of the +Son,

and of the +Holy Ghost

be with you my spiritual

children, and to others who

view our message !!! Amen!

          The days are growing shorter, as they do every year at about this time as we enter the Fall and Winter Seasons.  

          One can only wonder if this planet, this earth and its people have entered the Fall or Winter of the last days?  Truthfully, I would have to say that the End Times have begun, thus we are in the Fall and will soon enter into the Winter of this earth’s stage because of the lack of faith, the true faith, that was once believed and practiced in both spirit and truth by all who were called CHRISTIAN!

          And, it is my personal opinion that Monk Michael is correct in his assessment of things and what awaits all of us unless we can have an effect upon all who call themselves “CHRISTIAN” because what is being presented to the masses in these present times - is not CHRISTIAN but a pseudo-christian (look-alike) that is affecting this country and the world.  The Orthodox Catholic Church (via its various jurisdictions by nationalistic nomenclatures) continue to teach, preach and worship as those of our forefathers, Saints and Martyrs… However we must admit that there is infiltration into them with many things that are not wholly CHRISTIAN, in so far as slight alterings, modifications, etc. of not only Holy Writ, but understandings and writings as well. 

          Truly there are many who are not “Orthodox Catholic” or “Roman” … yet call upon the name of JESUS CHRIST, not just any “Christ” but JESUS CHRIST… according to their nature and degree of ability to believe (live and practice in spirit and truth) although their manner of worship is so different!  We cannot turn from them when the End Times come into its fullness… that we shall need to help them and rely on them for their help as well in order to survive the terrible times coming… where no one who truly believes, live and call upon the name of Jesus Christ in SPIRIT and IN TRUTH… denying the One World Church and One World Government…

          I would like to draw your attention to some articles which have a bearing on your (and my) lives, even, in some instances the very fabric of our faith  (right thinking, true worship, true beliefs) ….

·         A Case Against each and every one of You is building up!

·         Terrorism, your children and YOU...

·         Get radical for God says bestselling author, Rabbi Cahn: We should listen, read and possibly learn...

·         Do you know the answer as to why many Pretend not to understand?

There is much that you can learn… only if you force yourself to search, read, listen, pray and much more.  To “Learn” means you become fore-armed and more prepared for when we are judged by the Lord.  Will we be found lacking? Will we be found to have been lazy? Will we be found to have turned away because we were to busy with the machinations of work, of pleasure, and other things … or will we be judged, according to our nature and degree of ability, cooperated with all that our Faith demands of us?  For it is true that far too many today are indeed lazy, slothful, vain and worse … Our being lax in both worship, prayer and inner preparation shows forth the degree of our love for Jesus Christ!  I hope you not be found sleeping!

Being prepared spiritually actually helps us in becoming prepared materially in this life… Do you judge others?  Do you forgive others?  These are just a few questions that you should be asking yourself… Pray, and then pray some more… Do you go to confession?  Do you partake of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ? 

          Yet, for many of you who view this message, I pray for you and those who you hold near and dear in spirit and in truth, asking the Lord our God to open you up to the truth of the times and coming times, asking Him to help you in your need to be prepared both materially and spiritual!

          As this season comes to an end, it would be good to understand that we are in a time of training for far worse evil times ahead. To claim that we are immune to peril because we love Jesus is foolishness. Any reasonable, thinking human being can see that darkness is becoming more prevalent and a far greater darkness is soon to come. Now is the time for spiritual preparation and yes, even material. It will be very important to know our God more intimately and to gain the heart of Jesus Christ for when great evil invades our lives.

        Brothers and Sister... I pray for you, both known and unknown to me, will you pray for me?

September 2012

Addendum - 09-25-2012

 

Blessings To You

and those with you in

Spirit and in truth; Blessings

In the Name of the +Father,

and of the +Son, and of the +Holy Ghost! Amen!

 

    Many of you struggle to make a difference, with hope, faith and Charity of heart!  You share your pain, trust and love for all of God's creation according to your nature and degree of ability without forethought and without prejudice for you know that as I've often said, "Prejudice makes Prisoners of the Hated and the Hater".  It is so very true no matter who is affected by their lack of faith, by their non-violent lifestyles and more.  You offer yourselves in the very Hope of the Promise of Jesus Christ!

 

    Yet, many of you know, as I do that there are far many people out in this world of ours who hold such prejudices and hate that it boggles the imagination. 

 

    I know of one such individual who is of Russian stock and works as a welder.  He lives in the area that I do.  He sells illegal drugs on the side and is a member and believes in "White Pride" and such other selfish un-christian ideals while calling himself "Christian".  His hate is not blatant!  He walks tall and speaks with a silver tongue!  But when his anger comes out, then one hears and sees all the evil that could ever be!  His prejudice is no different than those of the Ku Klux Klan, Aryrian Racists ("White Pride") and even those of the terrorist Muslim groups such as Muslim Brotherhood even though this particular person is not Muslim by any means so much as his hate is equal to theirs as regards Muslims extremist attitude toward "Infidels" (those who are not believers in "Allah" (a false moon God which is not a god of peace by any stretch of the imagination). 

 

    I know of another man who is a single parent raising his son who is almost 18 or 19.  The parent believes he is a true "Christian" but speaks of such theological errors that have no comparison to the true Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ.  This man is (for lack of a better word) loved by his landlord and looks to him for information concerning tenants of the small apartment complex he lives in.  However, the man himself has been seen sneaking around late at night and peering into the windows of tenets who do not what he tells them to do about who they should not visit and more!  And, if the tenant does what h/she wants and not what this man wants, the Landlord gets intentional distorted information about that tenant which eventually leads to pressure being put on the tenant to either leave or be evicted!  Interesting indeed!  The antics of this man who calls himself "Christian" does not have the Love of Jesus Christ in him for he does not "forgive" and does "Judge" others... Even his landlord is of the same character and attitude himself.  Instead of going to the people they talk about, they accept each others words as though they were sacrosanct and true without verification, without going to the person being spoken of or about, especially if they have been in jail or prison at one time or another.  Not knowing what the truth is behind the cause of their being jailed or imprisoned, they believe all that is, by man's civil law, on paper not realizing that man's law is not perfect and thus Jesus has taught us neither to judge and to forgive!  But neither do.

 

    The two are multiplied more than a hundred times, more than a thousand times and 10 thousand times and more! 

 

    But you dear ones in the vineyard of this life, through hard times and good, know the truth of the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ and His Holy Apostles, Martyrs and Saints... Pray and pray for them and more who you may not know who are the cause for the lack of this country's lack of true Faith, prayer and for those who you pray for that I have described who seem to believe with sincerity of their conviction that they are doing what is right as led by their errant pastors and preachers in many so-called churches (I use little "c" for churches and not the big "C" which differentiates their false christianity from the true Christianity as followers of the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ!

 

    Brothers and Sister... I pray for you, both known and unknown to me, will you pray for me!

 

 

In The Name of the +Father,

and of the +Son,

and of the +Holy Ghost!  Amen!

    Blessings to each and every one of you who view this September's Message.  Blessings indeed!

    I am reticent to say what weighs heavily in my heart!  Why?  Because there are far too many who have been so (shall I dare say) "dummed down" in the various Public School systems of their upbringing... as also many of the "Community Colleges" and higher education institutions of learning unless it deals with technological matters, finance, legal, and mundane matters that tends to pull the average person away from the true history of our nation, the relationship of religion in the formation of our once great nation, as well as those matters relating to both the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and many other matters relating to the rights of the people, how our government is really supposed to work and the degree of balance that was once inherit in our system of checks and balances that are either no more or are disappearing for what some are opined to believe is an ineffective legislative body in Washington, D.C.  Why are these things so important you may ask!  Are you really prepared for the answer?  I don't think so!  But, as some of you who know me... I'm going to give you my thoughts and opinions as to what the answer is! 

    I believe there are one to two words that can sum up the whole matter... without articulating the meaning, of which I am going to articulate on regardless... The Two Words?  Oh, Sorry!  Forgot!  They are FAITH and RELIGION  ...

    Faith in the LIFE AND TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST (but by whose version of the Holy Bible?)  Not all versions are the same or equal in standing because of what is being produced and disseminated in these times are the errors of those publishing houses owned or operated by a false and misleading organization calling itself 'CHRISTIAN' but have little to no accountability or connection to the root, ground and base of the Holy Apostles and their successors... Not even the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church since that jurisdiction has further distanced itself from all that has been held faithfully without adulteration and modification... Thus, the Protestant groups, out of sincerity of their own misguided beliefs, promote the publishing of their versions of the Holy Bible with alterations for their own erroneous theological agendas.  A sad commentary that I make.... I know!  And, for what it is worth, I make no apologies whatsoever!

    Our government has intentionally and purposely misapplied the Constitution's requirement that there will be a separation of Church from State!  Yet, forget that it also implies and means that there shall be a separation of State from Church!  And, in the doing, they have taken illegal actions to protect and promote by their actions the re-building of mosques (parish of a Church is equal in terminology for a Mosque) of the religion of Islam... How?  By using U.S.A. money to rebuild Mosques in foreign countries where the wars have caused for both Christian structures and Muslim (Islamic) structures to be destroyed... using our money to rebuild Mosques but refusing to re-build Christian Structures... Where Muslims have slaughtered and killed Christians, burnt their houses of worship... our Government refuses to help rebuild and replace those destroyed but will help the Religion of Islam (Muslims) to rebuild their own...  This is misapplication of the U.S. Constitution of Separation of Church from State!  It is illegal, fundamentally illegal altogether.  And what is our Legislative bodies in Washington, D.C. doing?  Absolutely NOTHING except to aide and rush forward those laws that bans our government institutions (both Federal, State and Local) from keeping any words or phrases or objects that reflect any THING regarding 'CHRISTIAN' and requires their removal from buildings, court rooms, and more!  For such has, over these last few generations, invaded our Public, and many Private, schools, colleges and universities!  These actions are totally out of context from what our founding fathers of the Americas had in mind... Thus, the destruction of our once great nation as we rush head-long into and towards the ONE WORLD CHURCH and ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT!

    Our sitting President is believed to be a closeted Muslim while calling himself a "Christian" but when he goes to any institution of learning to give a speech, he has his advance teams go, to cover up crosses and images or statutes relating to any thing bearing CHRISTIAN connection.  But yet, when it bears a relationship to ISLAM (Muslims) he does not have any words, images, pictures, etc. covered up!  And, he has promoted, it is believed, for some states to violate the U.S. CONSTITUTION (behind the scenes) and advancing the inculcation of SHARIA LAW (A religious Law Code of ISLAM) and it directly violates the U.S. CONSTITUTION altogether. He has shown in his actions and in his speeches that he is not CHRISTIAN by any stretch of the imagination!  He is "forked tongued"...

    According to some information that has been sent to me not only by some Protestants and some Orthodox, some Roman and a few Jewish professionals...   The words "Islam," "Allah," "Mohammed," and "O'Bama" - - - have been examined and found to equate to the book of Revelations (Christian Holy Bible) numerals "666" - - - Of course, it would depend upon what standards and by whose strict translation guidelines one uses!  But I thought it rather interesting all together!  Think about it!  In fact, I was recently told that the name "O'Bama" is linked to the third anti-christ that has been predicted and yet a few believe that it refers to the Pope (either now or in the future) or to the heads of the Iranian Government, etc., etc., etc.   The fact of the matter is that the direction our country is being lead toward and what is happening and by whom which is destroying our CONSTITUTION, and our CHRISTIAN values and much, much more is all the primary answer I need to see what is happening for the moment!  What about you?

    All of these things that I am describing and writing about to you, my beloved spiritual brothers and sisters, has much to do with our FAITH and BELIEF... and in the future... we will be vilified and hunted down... unless we go "underground" into the proverbial "catacombs" - - - that time is not too far off dear ones!  Not to far off indeed!  It is already happening in very small degrees through our court system's abuse and misuse of laws... as promulgated by State Health and Welfare Systems across the U.S.A. whereby many families of Faith, regardless of their denomination... have had their children taken away and slapped with fines, even worse - - - for home schooling their children and including the FAITH TEACHINGS... It is the FAITH TEACHINGS that the H&W had issues with and had the courts involved... And, this trend is growing... Now it has reached the magnitude where holding private BIBLE Studies in one's home with a few neighbors and friends is being attacked in some states... You see where this all going?  You better wake up and talk about these many issues with your family, your friends, your church leaders, and many others... STOP the government interferences in FAMILY'S lives.  Oh, I forgot... the majority of you did little to nothing already in past times to stop Government intrusion in your affairs of personal life because some of you were already "dummed down" in education ... and thus what you have been facing with greater frequency is happening because of you lax ways... more the result of not being taught in the school systems and higher institutions of learning, how to use certain means for deductive reasoning, mental tools that range the full wide scope of asking the basic questions of WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY and HOW...  Is it too late now?  I will not gainsay!  This also, as an added comment, involves your spiritual growth and how... through prayer, confession, true repentance, partaking in the Holy Mysteries... and much more... and for clergy, maintaining the Seals of the Confessional and doing what is ordained for the Faithful, you too must equally do for you are a SINNER as I am too!

    Of what I do know is that the very fabric of our faith that comes from the root, ground and branch of the Orthodox Catholic Church (EXISTING under numerous nationalistic names: ie: Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, American Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, Ukrainian Orthodox, etc.  - - - are the holders of the Keys that Jesus gave the Apostle Paul and they were to be used by all of the Apostles as well... as reflected in the Gospels concerning the time He ascended into Heaven... he gave them the power to bind, to loose, to forgive or to remit.. to preach, teach, pray, to prepare and give the Holy Mysteries,  to extend and forward these things to their legitimate successors...  And those of today, who intentionally do not... no longer hold those keys and their spiritual armor is thus become the armor of Satan for the armor of a true Orthodox Catholic Christian IS.... The HOLY GHOST (Spirit).... and many apostles of these present times... are loosing because, primarily, they have opted for public image as a means to not loose their flock while forgetting their soul and the souls of their faithful... and those who struggle out of true pain of heart for the Faith once delivered... maintain themselves according to their nature and degree of ability as an Apostle of Jesus Christ's in spirit and in truth... for no amount of legal documentation, certifications, etc. can have a higher weight to who is or is not! 

    As to the Faithful... Pray dear ones... Pray some more!  For me I ask for your prayers indeed... for I dare stand up and speak out on these many things... for they all hinge upon our life and living our very faith (belief... taking action, speaking right words, right thinking)...and will hinder even our right to worship in the ways we do now... which will, for many of you, cause for some of you to abandon your faith... and become one of those who either convert to Islam or become one with the False Christianity being espoused in these present times that is the foundation and will be of the ONE WORLD CHURCH where everything is humanistic... touchy, feely, acceptance of those theologies and errors of other religions, being politically correct so as to not hurt any one's feelings even if what should be said is TRUTH... for such as is being promoted even as I write! 

    As a result, the time will come when who ever denies the ONE WORLD CHURCH, etc. AND those things relating to it... be they Protestant, Roman, Orthodox, etc. - - - we will most assuredly need to rely on each other for our material survival... as we will be looked to for help and assistance for them too... but we who are Orthodox, must continue in our heart, and in our private places where possible to maintain not only the FAITH that we hold near and dear, but our ways of worship without having to violate the Canons and worship with those who are not accordingly true Orthodox Catholic Christians... for many of those who are not one with us in Orthodoxy, are yet very good people who pray and call on the name of JESUS CHRIST ... who we will need for help as they will also need ours for we will all be in concert as to our united denial of any THING that requires our acceptance of the ONE WORLD CHURCH and ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT! 

    Whether known to me or not... I pray for you... Will you Pray for me?

Addendum - 08-26-2012: Please click on and carefully, with prayer, read:

 

A CONFESSION OF FAITH AND MORE! Regarding the End Times, when they come, and more especially these present times!

 

To you who view this missive

for August 2012...

Blessings indeed, especially to

all who are my spiritual children...

In the name of the +Father, the

+Son, Jesus Christ, and the +Holy Ghost... Amen!

 

    I am a man of this world and not enough of the other. 

 

    Yet I have more to apprehend of this spiritual struggle while in this life for the life to come..

 

    Pray with sincerity of heart, mind and soul for the patience, humility and obedience which can only come from and through Jesus Christ and Holy Ghost here below...

 

    Truthfully, dear ones in the vineyard of this life, I am often vexed by the lack of many who, for the most part, are ungracious and unforgiving of others no matter what has or has not, been done in life.  Jesus Christ has taught us to "Forgive" and "Forgive" again and again.  Yet, far too many have imbibed of the very thing(s) that we should not!  Thus their self-image by association is often the cause for what appears to be an "un-forgiving" nature in them.

 

    I am reminded of something that I asked our Webmaster to post in 2011... And it goes this way:

"The following comes to us from a General Confession which the Mother Superior uses for all the sisters at Midnight Services.  I feel such is good for us to learn something important from this for the same may be applied to our own daily prayers for which we seek Forgiveness from the Lord our God who is the Source of all life and abundance.

 

    O my Savior!  I have promised to devote my whole life to Thee, to fill my whole soul with love for Thee alone!  I examine my heart and find myself guilty.

 

    I have sinned through lack of faith, spiritual indifference, feebleness in fasting and prayer, irreverence before holy things, the lack of fear of God....

 

    I do not want anyone or anything to stand in the way of my movement toward Thee, O Jesus Christ!  Now I ask myself is this so?  And, I find that many things have prevailed over me: food, clothing, warmth, the comforts of life, attachments, and every kind of passion...

 

    In loving Thee, O Lord, I wanted to have holy love for my neighbor, but look upon myself and see how I am proud, self-loving, easily offended, envious, jealous, irritable and so on... (here one could name other sins).  And how much complaining, impatience, judging, and every kind of ill will toward others I find in myself.

 

    Forgive, O God, all my sins, enlighten my mind with the light of Thine understanding, strengthen my sluggish, weak soul, which always inclines my will toward evil; cleanse my passionate heart and breathe into it a striving for purity, chastity, humility, meekness, calmness, mildness, simplicity, and, more importantly, love for Thee, O my Most Sweet Jesus, so that I might be with Thee forever.  Amen!

 

    While the service does not end here: the sisters then ask forgiveness of one another, prostrating themselves at each other's feet and being reconciled.  Then, after singing the touching hymn, "O Most Sweet and Most Generous Jesus!" they silently go their own cells. "

    Truthfully, the prayer applies to my unworthy self as well!  As it also applies to every clergyman in the vineyard of this life without exception!  The slightest sin of commission and omission is equal to the greatest sin ever except the sin of Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost... Remember that!  It applies to you as much as it applies to me, and probably more me than you in spirit and in truth!

 

    On knowing a bit more of what is happening and taking place both within our borders and outside of them; I am vexed by thoughts that many of you are so unprepared in your spirit, that it is a matter of understanding human nature, whereby the majority of you will respond to forthcoming events and situations in a manner that is... fend for yourself attitudes and actions.  Sounds a bit crazy?  May be!  Yet, the most one can do is to arm themselves with that which may be necessary to keep home and those you care about, together!  No matter what one does, it holds nothing compared to the strength and power of PRAYER!  PRAYER FROM THE HEART!  It is most vital that you understand this! 

 

    Do not blame God for your present or future situations and the events to come... for mankind is responsible!  You are responsible... and thus, what befalls one is that which they have brought on themselves whether intentional or not! As a person, as a group, as a nation.... You have allowed things to take place or which will take place where your situation or event... will be the result of your actions (or lack of them), your thoughts and your life-styles... whether intentional or unintentional!  Those are the TRUE FACTS!  And PRAYER is the only means by which some of those things can be mitigated... Not saying they will be... but that they CAN BE through PRAYER, SINCERE FROM-THE-HEART PRAYER! 

 

    I am not necessarily an "Alarmist" or "doomsday" type of person.... but, there are many who have viewed our Website with such thoughts that I (and those with me) are (as a result of our DAILY NEWS section)!  Far be it for me to say that we are not!  What we have posted are such that leads you to information to substantiate or negate those things... Yet, as human nature being what it is with mankind, someone has to be blamed in your way of thinking.  Do not blame the messengers for carrying the message... look elsewhere!

 

        The same holds true as regards those of differing religions and doctrines.  The individual is not to blame as is their leaders.  Many of Islam are, as individuals, very - - - very good people!  But their religion, their doctrines and what they have to abide by or eventually abide by is what I take issue with as do many of the various so-called "CHRISTIAN" groups be they of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church as well as the Orthodox jurisdictions of the Catholic Church... and those of the various Protestant persuasions... As an individual, as a person, many are very, very decent and loving people.  Yet, again, their theologies and doctrines are at issue. 

 

    An Orthodox attitude exists which says, according to the teachings: However here, I must warn you about something. Our times, my friends, are attempting to create (and here we must all listen very closely because we are all infected); our times are attempting to create a Christianity with no distress—a Christianity full of compromises and comforts. We refuse to hear about any discomfort or distress. This is one of the two great dangers that threaten our Church today. The first danger is secularization, and the second danger is ecumenism, or religious syncretism. These two great dangers threaten the Church as we are speaking. I will repeat. Secularization compromises the Gospel to fit the formulas of this world. It allows the “phronema” or the mindset of the world to enter the Gospel. It offers a politically correct Gospel, so we do not offend those who are in love with their passions and it presents a Gospel that embraces the homosexual, the lesbian, the adulterer and all the liars without any need for repentance. As John Shelby Spong, [the Episcopal bishop of Newark NJ for 24 years and who retired in 2000] puts it, “Christianity must undergo radical changes if it is to be relevant in the next century.” He proposes a new theological reformation that alters the way we think about God, no more, no less, a new Christianity that fits our rationalism; to recreate God according to our passions (a tremendous danger); a Christianity without Christ, a Christianity without the God-man, a Christianity that will pave the way to worship the Antichrist.

    The second danger is ecumenism, or religious syncretism which is peace at the expense of truth. The disease of ecumenism has infected a number of bishops. In 1989, the Patriarch of Alexandria affirmed that the Prophet Mohammed is an apostle and a man of god and those that are against Islam, and Buddhism, are not in agreement with God. A few bishops of Greece and a number of lay theologians protested heavily and spoke out, but only a few, only the remnant. Unfortunately, a retraction was not demanded by any one of the other Patriarchs, as far as we know, and this blasphemy was simply forgotten. All this is because today’s Christian is looking for a Christianity that does not cost anything, a spirituality in opposition to the cross, a spirituality that shuns sacrifice. This ceases to be spirituality because it lacks the presence of the Holy Spirit; and it simply becomes a cheap substitute, a bankrupt form of spirituality. Such a spirituality does not have the Holy Spirit of God and it ends up as a humanistic spirituality, the one used by the psychologists. They use this term loosely, psychologists use it, fine artists, soloists, poets, opera singers; and this spirituality has nothing to do with the Holy Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit has fled from this sort of spirituality.

 

    I have to agree with Monk Michael in what he has indicated - - - that there will come a time in which we must throw out the door our various differences as a CHRISTIAN people and come to accept them (not their doctrines or false theologies) so that we can help each other no matter who they be as a person!  Not to do so, especially during the END TIMES which many believe has already begun - - - and when the END TIMES does reach its heights the will indeed be disastrous for those people and our very selves unless they accept whatever is required by society, the government, etc.  We must still abide by that which we hold true and dear insofar as abiding by the  Ecumenical Councils, etc.  But the people themselves will need our help as much, and may be even more, as we may need their help too if we do not accept and maintain our very faith against the will of those in power! 

 

     In all these things I am not afraid for myself as I am so for you and those who you hold near and dear in your spirit and in truth!  Take time and meditate on these many things... PRAY hard and out of sincerity! 

 

    Therefore I can only ask, pray for me as I pray for you!

July - 2012

Blessing to You and those

with you in spirit and in truth

as I, unworthy that I am, bless you

who I know as my spiritual children

in the vineyard of this life;

 

    There is much I would like to tell you, but alas poor fool that I am, there is not enough room and you would loose interest as some of you do with my long missives from a modern day apostle of Jesus Christ's. 

 

    In some of our DAILY NEWS postings, we have made "Commentaries, Notes & Opinions" rather succinctly well known to all the readers. 

 

    Under normal circumstances and situations and in less difficult times, I would have to agree with the many comments from our Eastern brethren of Orthodox Catholic Christianity; in that I should be patient, mild and meek as our Lord and Savior was during His ministry. 

 

    I am reminded of something from Holy Scripture in which it is said, " ... From now on he who has purses, let him take them, and the bag likewise; and he who has no sword, let him sell his robe and buy for himself a sword".  And, I would have to say that this is the time... to take up the sword which not only Holy Scripture... but understanding Holy Scripture for it is not a sword unless you live, breathe and use it... And, as for the literal "sword" - - - it is time... to defend yourself, your loved ones and many others. 

 

    There is so very much out there on the internet who have little to no faith, and that is a good part of the reasons why we have seen many so-called "Christians" leave the faith, converting to the Satanic Religion of Islam! 

 

    So you don't like my words?  Too bad!  It is a truth that can be mollified with obscure pretty words!  It is a truth!

 

    And, information we place on our website, especially concerning DAILY NEWS, is part of the armor that you, as a Christian, must be made aware of if you are to have as much of the facts as we can possibly provide.  That does not mean we provide ALL THE FACTS for not a one of us knows what they are in regards to a given event or situation. 

 

    I, a most unworthy repentant one in the vineyard of this life, will have much to account for on Judgment Day before the Most High Judge, Jesus Christ and all His Holy Ones.  I must ask, if you would, to pray for me now and at the hour of my own repose... for I do indeed have to admit, that while I am a hierarch in the true Church of Jesus Christ's and His Holy Apostles, I am indeed, by my oft times thoughts, words and even my actions, a sinner of the most despicable kind as far as I'm concerned.  But, in hoped for atonement in part, I pray that arming you with information, helps to assuage my unworthiness before the Lord our God?  You can not answer that one.  No one can.  And to presume and assume as the Protestant daughters of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church, that we are saved... it is an ungodly thought that is not in keeping with the true faith handed down to us although as regards "being saved" is allegorical and means we have to be on-guard with our thoughts, words and actions in so far as we possibly can, but also to be open, honest and forthright to all who need help... Each of us do need help!

 

    I have always said that all hierarchs, monks, nuns, all clergy... are sinners in one way or another... some are indeed more holy than others, and yet, we ARE ALL SINNERS in spirit and in truth!  Thus, I have always felt and still do feel that we can not and must be more open, when and where it will not incur problems for others.  This high and mighty attitude of approach is not being true, in my personal opinion, to the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ.  Paul was a good example of being open and honest with everyone, even about himself!  So were many others in spirit and truth!  To "white wash" our own selves is to abrogate on a selective basis, the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ....

 

    Therefore, I ask you, each and everyone, to provide my unworthy self with your Pro's and Con's to this missive as I feel it is very important! And, again, I ask for your prayers as well... for even I, need prayers too!

June -  2012

To you who view this missive

for June 2012

Blessings indeed, especially to

all who are my spiritual children...

 

    Here it is, the beginning of the hot season... Summer!  Will this be the last summer for us as so-called prognosticators and others have indicated?  Doubt it!  No man knows the day or hour on which the world, as we know, will end!  Solar Flares, the Mayan Calendar, etc. are just some of the tid-bits many have bitten into.  What about Jesus Christ?  What about His life and teachings being your guide for life and living?

 

    I have been working on a project that is immense.  Something I have not done in many, many years.  It is called the History of Antichrist!  It discusses the "Man of Sin," probable events, his reign, time and end, according to Holy Scripture and Tradition! 

 

    Along that kind of note, I would wish for you to concern yourself with Prayer!  That is to say, concern yourselves with TRUE PRAYER FROM THE HEART!  And, on that subject, click on this link:  Thoughts On Prayer By: (Monk - Peter {Sergin} Most Profound and soul shaking as well as: About Time.

 

    Both articles are actually connected or entertwined as they both relate to the here and now, and the hereafter in part or whole. 

 

    The most busiest web pages at http://www.apostle1.com are the Pascha {Easter} and the Daily News pages.

 

    The Pascha {Easter} pages provide much information for both clergy, students of theology, laity and others who want the truth ABOUT our Christian faith.  An article entitled Pastor Has No Clothes ? ? ? Really?  Is this more of the turning away from the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ with the prophesied false Christianity?  A heavy response - Maybe !  and when you read our Note, Commentary and Opinion, you will see why their are far to many corrupted theologies and beliefs under the disguise of being called "Christian"... 

 

    Yes!  Our  Pascha {Easter} pages have content that is good for use even by the Western Orthodox Theological Institute (WOTI) {the predecessor to the now closed St. John Chrysostom University.}   

 

   

    As some of you already know, our Daily News pages is very important to those who are true Christians, 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 times to come, 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. And, part of the reason for posting About Time is concerning these very matters.

 

    With the advancement of the Islamic (Muslim) "Sharia Law" (a religious law of Islam)... as allowed to exist now, in some states of the U.S.A., it is opined it was a politically motivated advance by the closeted Muslim in the highest office in the land; our country is distancing itself and the world away from True Orthodox Christianity.  What is taking its place will be described further in the project I am working on concerning the Antichrist!

 

    Of these many things that I speak about, I encourage you to take the time and visit the various links provided.  The, may I ask, that you set aside time (15 minutes at least, more if possible) to do some serious Prayer, from the heart... not just your lips.  Reread the article: Thoughts On Prayer By: (Monk - Peter {Sergin} Most Profound and soul shaking.    

 

    With utmost urgency for prayers, using your Chutka (rosary) - - - or earnest prayer from the heart itself... Pray for yourself, your family, this country and the world.  Send me your own prayer requests if you wish.  Send them to: thaddeus@apostle1.com and I shall indeed add them to my daily prayers.

 

    I cannot say enough that Prayer from the heart is a must on a daily basis for all who consider themselves a Christian in spirit and truth!  For prayer is one of the major hallmarks of what it means to be a Christian!

 

    Blessings to you and yours as I ask for your prayers of the heart, mind and soul, know that I am;

May 2012

 

A Blessing to all of you, my

spiritual children in the vineyard

and many, many more....

 

    Mother's Day is forthcoming here in the U.S.A.  and I am reminded of my own mother, even my sister Carol in Oakridge, Tennessee who is a mother so blessed with children and grandchildren.  Yet, I wished it had been true in my family that the saying, "All things can be handled, no matter how grievous, as a family..."  But sadly to say, that is not a truth that was in my own kiss-n-kin... as self-image was the more important because of Roman priests who took political issue with who is or is not Orthodox... falsely believing the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church is the whole-ness of what is CATHOLIC.  Forgetting and not realizing that the Roman Jurisdiction came out of that which they separated from which is Orthodoxy itself!  History is replete with truth...

 

    Yet, we must ask ourselves, what does Mother's Day really mean?  And each of you will have much to add to this as to how you feel about your mother, you siblings and more...

 

    I can tell you though, that my own mother was blessed and a blessing to me, unworthy that I was of her in this life when she was alive. 

 

    I believe that all mother's who are true to their children and the children of others must be held in very high esteem unless they are the kind of mother (of which there are some) who would offer their children for illicit purposes and schemes such as Muslim Jihadists do... and much on the Islamic Jihadists about at this web site...

 

    But a true Mother would never, ever allow any THING to be done to harm their children if they can possibly prevent them from any kind of harm.  That to me is a Mother who is exceptional...

 

    The Reverend Mothers of many a monastery is a true Mother because she, like Mary the Mother of Jesus, would do all that she could physically do to safe guard Him from harm... Yet, even Jesus (Christ) knew his purpose and design in coming into this world.  When you see an icon of Mary at the cross of Jesus, you cannot help but feel the emotional and spiritual impact such a sight had on her. 

 

    Now, you know that image, that kind of an icon is a true Mother in distress for her Son... and for you!

 

    Jesus Christ is our aim and goal... what is prophesied in the Holy Bible is a part of all that is said above...  And Prayer Warriors with true spiritual struggle out of pain of heart are much in need to help affect a cure for the lack in this world ... before it is too late... or is it already?

 

Asking for you prayers of the heart, mind and soul, know that I am;

April 2012

Blessings to you who read this

and to those who are my spiritual Children,

Blessings Indeed...

 

(There occurs a problem in which the word "financial" has somehow been "text-enhanced" which I have not authorized or want.  I have not been able to correct the problem.  Forgive me...)   

 

I am modifying this message to add several things I had failed to consider.  Further meditation and prayer has caused for me to reconsider what I've already written and add a bit more.  Thus, while you will not necessarily know what was the original... this whole message for April 2012 is being, shall we say, revamped a bit. 

 

    I recently posted a message at our Yahoo group in which I told about an individual who I describe as s/he (she/he) telephones with a "beep beep" recording requirement being heard... calling as a means to believe s/he is scaring me whenever I post news items and updates to our web site of http://www.apostle1.com... Rather interesting indeed.  But there is actually more to this about news and other postings not directly connected to matters of Faith and this Jurisdiction... Much more!

 

    I wish to raise some issues you could consider in your daily prayers and meditation. 

 

    For many, many years now we've heard about "Mark of the Beast" which many believe is the proverbial "Mark on the forehead" which could be any thing inserted in your arm as has been discussed and is little to no different than what is used to 'track' for lost animals and is almost a law in many states regarding all animals... Now it is to come to the animal called "Human Beings" so that our government can have more control over all our activities both economic and otherwise which would allow for you to buy or purchase and obtain health care as well. How long is this before it goes into effect.  Recent reports say another 2-4 years, but other means may be in the "secrets" workshop of our government and whatever it may be, it will be the replacement to all financial business by human beings... Be very afraid... That's the first item for contemplation and meditation... Are you going to allow for that Mark of the Beast to be put into you?  Don't say with absolute assuredness that you won't accept it.  For there are many today who having claimed the faith of Jesus Christ who have become Muslims (Satanic religion of Islam).

 

    It is difficult, here in the U.S.A. and OTHER COUNTRIES but what we MUST post such items that we do, even though they are not totally and directly linked to one's Faith because it is a part of our Religion (Religare =  To Unite with God) which is by our thoughts, our words and our very daily actions.  So, in the end it is connected!

 

    Therefore, the Church is not only the "faith of the people" it is much more.  It is how we respond in our daily life to all that is going on in our lives which "Faith" in action and includes everything... yes... everything... What we see, what we read, what we think, what we do and even what we say...

 

    In order to understand how our own individual selves move from strength to strength in maintaining our Faith, we have to also include how much of that which goes on around us by the modern day Sanhedrin (politicians) and the actions taken by our government (Federal, State and local) which do affect our abilities to maintain our Faith in both spirit and in truth. 

 

    As some of you already know... the very fabric of our Faith as it was given and handed down to us from Jesus Christ through the Holy Apostles... is constantly and daily being attacked.  An example is how the Satanic religion of Islam (Muslims) has caused our government to cow-tow to Muslims who go berserk about the burning of the Koran, but we do not get upset when our Christian brothers, sisters, our temples of worship are literally murdered, destroyed, along with our Holy Bible.  How many of you have taken your representative or Senator to task for not voting to ensure that all people including Christians and Jews are protected not just in foreign lands but also  here in the U.S.A. while our government allows Muslim camps to exist that teach "Jihad" against those they consider infidels (Christian and Jews)?  The old argument of "Separation of Church from State" which is a lame duck excuse as our government has been dolling out millions of dollars to help Muslims (Satanic Religion of Islam) rebuild and build their Mosques in foreign countries but not the Temples of worship of Christians and Jews that were initially destroyed by Muslims... Very few of you go to such efforts to correct this disfigurement of our government because of your weakness to stand strong and true under disguise that your voice does not count, when it does!

 

    Abouna +Gregori, Monk Michael and myself, to mention a few of us... have long been attempting to tell you and those with you in spirit and in truth that what has been and is happening around you locally, state wide, and federally... being the whole U.S.A. actually, as you know, impacts the world at large as much as the world at large impacts the U.S.A.  I refer you to the following link entitled: 04-24-2012 An Opinion that needs to be said and acted on!

 

    However, some of what Abouna +Gregori has said is basically this:  " We have become a nation of dumbed down twits and it appears that the old saying; "Ignorance is bliss", is true because the sheeple seem happy as hell as our country goes down the crapper."

 

    The response from Monk Michael, in his opinion, is:

       

"You are correct and that was exactly my point, you nailed it. Most people do not care because they have their entertainment be it sports or the latest Hollywood gossip. I have mine sorry you don't have yours is the attitude. In order to care one would have to look at one's self and get rid of the sin, people are perfectly content in their sin so they are not willing to give it up and therefore do not want to rock the boat being concerned over sin any where else, as long as nothing dramatic happens to them because of someone's sin, they will keep their eyes closed.
 
The decline of the education system has been systematically planned, I remember the standards being relaxed at least twice in my lifetime so that those who simply refused to apply themselves could still pass the tests to get a diploma. There is no excuse for someone with a college degree who cannot use a dictionary, high school graduates who cannot read a newspaper or even speak clearly enough for someone else who is supposed to be speaking the same language can understand them. Modern psychiatry and psychology are the enemy of God and have destroyed this nation. Science is looking for ways to disprove God and so-called Christian scientists are looking for ways to prove God. Science will never do either. I am not opposed to science, only the effort to prove Almighty God."

 

Monk Michael does not stop there but goes on to say:

       

"The church continues to splinter, God has been replaced by a collection of books, thousands of interpretations from the same words because there is no longer a true faith, truth and faith are relevant to one's opinion and interpretation of words in a book. Try to speak on things of the spirit and you will either be scorned or end up in conversation with extremists nuts who have no clue. Satan doesn't exist according to modern thought in much of the church or the other extreme is that he is to be feared to the point of personal terror if you encounter him, both opinions are ridiculous. I have personally been in life and death struggles with him over the soul of others, we can do nothing, we have no strength in ourselves, nor do we need to fear him, prayer and faith, the name of Jesus Christ , these are what defeat Satan.
 
It seems that even a majority of those who call themselves Christian have forgotten this."

  

    All of this has to do with the sly, deceitful ways in which our so-called government and its politicians (so-called representatives of the people) are truly not telling the truth about what is going on and, in fact, manufacture hyperbole or other target issues in order to keep you away from the real concerns affecting our nation.  As a result, you have a closet case Muslim under guise of being a Christian sitting in the White House.  You have a man who is a Mormon (and many Mormons are the best people I've ever met) but this man will, as he has said, do away with Social Security, the Welfare System as well as Medicare and Medicaid if he gets elected. 

 

    What does all this have to do with you?  One hell of a lot! 

 

    Your true Christian principles of Faith are under attack by the antics of the bidders for the Presidency even though it is so subtle and hardly noticeable.  Not because of a Mormon or a Closet Case Muslim, but because of their ideologies that affect the destruction on-going in this nation of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and much more.  We are a Republic not a democracy!  Our ways as a Republic incorporates our heritages... ethnic, religious, and more... However, with those things mentioned, those who have the most power usurp your rights as a people and destroy the basics of your religious faith as a Christian nation.  But so many who call themselves "Christian" are that only in name... but not in truth, because a true Christian would step up to the plate, face the destroyers of our nation which Congress accedes to by their lame duck actions and double talk to the average citizen...

 

    Our borders are insecure.  Illegal Immigration is a problem.  It is said the President has been trying to cede the ocean shores of the U.S.A to the U.N. as well as having, behind the scene, by his actions and lack thereof, to allow for Muslim incursions within our National Borders which has, by his actions and lack thereof, brought about Sharia Law (Muslim law) in several states instead of requiring (as those of such Satanic Faith who became citizens of the U.S.A.) them to abide only by the Law of this land and the States of the U.S.A they reside in.  Many of the so-called Muslims are those people of the Afro-American culture in the Prison system along with many Hispanics... AS WELL AS THE NEWLY ARRIVED MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS].

 

    You ask what can you do?  It really doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out and you certainly do not have to have a High School Graduate Certificate either.  Even an 8th and 9th Grader can figure it out...

 

    Everyone claims they want to know... but the reality is that they don't want to know because it would mean they would have to do something about it... They are, for the most part in a mindless state of denial that anything is wrong... Yet, they are quick to scream when they have to pay more at the pump, utilities, loose a job and have to go begging for one... pay more for groceries, health care, and wonder why our Social Security is on the verge of bankruptcy (when, I believe, it should be put back into its own fund without any right of any Federal agency to borrow from it and leave an I.O.U. which was never repaid anyway in former times before they took Social Security and put it into the General Fund where now all the agencies of the Federal Government can run it dry...). 

 

    All these things have an effect and affect your Faith, your Church, your morals, even your sanity because the television is full of so much bilge but not the truth of really what's happening because they are playing politics with every big wig... in short, they are gagged! 

 

    Many of you do not see the connection between one dot and another dot in the scheme of things because you've allowed yourself to be so mesmerized and dumbed down by the B.S. OF the Federal Government that primarily comes out of the White House.  Will it really matter who the next President is?  Not really.  One is just as bad as the other... and if prophecy holds true... the silver tongued minion of Satan presently sitting in the White House will be there again... But, if it should happen the other gets in... it'll be the same things happening anyway... just a different face with a different name!

 

    How often this Jurisdiction, this Web Site has attempted to tell you what is really happening.. but you do not respond one bit!  You do not get involved with e-mails, telephone calls or anything else.  You have one excuse after another!   Most of you prefer to live the moment without having to do anything beyond your computer games, entertainments (which have become something of a religion in themselves) ....

 

    Even with all the various evidence upon evidence set before you to read or hear... you neither respond, reply or take action to even attempt to try to correct the horrors this country is going through! 

 

    The end results that are on-going is that your ministers, pastors and priests... along with the fabric and cornerstone of you Faith is being attacked not only by our own government so subtly, but by the incursions of the Satanic Religion of Islam (Muslim) whose primary Satanic Bible, the Quoran (Koran) and their Imams... can sign any agreement with us who are (to them) infidels and their Satanic Holy Book says they do not have to abide by such an agreement... Muslims go berserk if their Satanic Holy Book is burned... So what!  They burn the Christian and Jews Holy writings... they murder us! They destroy our temples of worship... And our country through the sitting President and previous Presidents, have cow-towed in various ways (through political grand-standing) ... not to protect us.. but to make us the "sheeple" of a nation that is no longer the moral fulcrum of Truth, Justice and Freedom for all because we have lost fair justice in the manner and way the courts act (judges), Truth has become a lie and a lie has become the new Truth... As for "Freedom" - - - that has become a joke as we watch our schools, colleges and universities teaching less about the U.S. Constitution and more about the Satanic Religion of Islam to the degree of forcing it on our children... Yes! You see this in print!  It is very true... Even some religious organization, such as Campus Crusade or something similar is now being forced at various colleges to let the Imam of Islam to be the minister over them... Interesting indeed! 

 

    Yes... most of you are indeed in a mental state of denial by your actions or lack thereof! 

 

    Many of you fail or refuse to make comments or send e-mails concerning the various news items we post.  And a few along the way over the years have come right out (and I thank you for at least your comments Pro or Con) where you have said that true Orthodox parishes and churches do not post such news items and other things that we post.  That may be true but are you really building the faith instead of your pocket book by denying them information and relying on public news to reach them that really has an affect on your mission, parish, church or jurisdiction? 

 

    How many of you have tithed to those of your parishes and temples (houses of worship) to aide and assist to ensure that your pastors and priests, your bishops, can provide the necessities of help to others including such as http://www.apostle1.com is dong?  Very few of you... Be it $5, $10 or more each month?  One tenth is just that, 1/10th of your total income... a small amount even during these times of economic strife... Sometimes just material goods is very good replacement to money you don't have.  Support your ministers, pastors and priests and you help yourself as well!  Those of us who belong to this Jurisdiction of the World Wide Orthodoxy (One, Holy, Orthodox, Catholic and Apostolic Church) practice that which is intended by Jesus Christ and the Holy Apostles... meaning we do not have a salary, do not pass collection plates and work primarily our of our own pockets... For what may be sent to us as a donation or special use, or tithing (if any)... go not into our own pockets but back into ensuring that the people obtain the gain...the benefit... not the pastor, minister or priest!  That is true Orthodox Catholic Christianity in action!

 

    How many of you reach out to those ministers, pastors and priests to thank them for their efforts to keep you in the proverbial loop with both spiritual and material food? Wake UP!  And how many of you really take care and concern to read and act on information you gain from your ministers, pastors, priests and their efforts to help you better yourself and gain important understandings?  Wow!  Could I go on with this... but I'll stop at this point!  I know I've said more than enough! 

 

    However, DO NOT FORGET THIS ONE IMPORTANT FACT!  All these things are like dots on a map that lead back to one's Church, one's Faith and one's very being... themselves!  You and me! 

 

    Jesus Christ is our aim and goal... what is prophesied in the Holy Bible is a part of all that is said above...  And Prayer Warriors with true spiritual struggle out of pain of heart are much in need to help affect a cure before it is too late... or is it already?

January, February, March

(With coming addendums - - - Of course! And, it all depends on world events as well as spiritual pursuits)

 

An Addendum to the March message below:

 

    It is truly sad to that I have to say, of which you are most fully aware of, but we live in world so full of hate, destruction, vengeance, power and control of all human beings that it seems almost impossible that you or my unworthy self can overcome these many things.  Thus, I post one basic negative item that is truly a refresher course.....

 

A Refresher Course for many of you ??? 

And the following two links, as a means, especially for all our clergy and faithful to consider and meditate upon... even share all these links with your friends and other Christians, both Orthodox and Roman as well as many of Churches of the Protestant persuasions... For I can only hope and pray that while my own life is short, considering age, faults and frailties that I share with many of you... most of you may have far longer lives than me.  Yet, for whatever it is worth, may these links provide a means to learn more for spiritual and material food for now and in the future...

Should any one have any questions whatsoever, please feel to contact my unworthy self and advise me, be it pro or con, as to your thoughts, ideas, etc.  For I am open as long as such is not in a negative confrontational settings...

Blessing many of you with my own, private, prayers and thoughts.....

To All of you who view this, and

to all my spiritual children in the

vineyard of this life and the life to Come;

 

Blessings and good thoughts do I extend to each and every one of you...

 

    I am told that with what the government is doing and has been doing, it is more apparent and evident of what this Jurisdiction's Web Site has been saying about Government's incursion, especially here in the United States of America, into destroying the values of Religious people and their various church teachings, more so if it is truly founded, grounded and based in the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ.

 

    One glaring example of what I am referring to is the now cost and redefining of what Medicare and other medical programs and insurance companies must provide, especially those churches who have employees... having to pay for other children's and people's abortions as well as other life destroying medications.  All of which goes again the Doctrines of the Churches.  No longer is Government separate from church or Church from Government... but Government over the Church, dictating, annihilating the fundamental rights of one's belief or faith... Thus we have posted an article that pretty much spells out what is happening.  Go To: 02-05-2012 More on the Obama mandates pro-abortion policy on faith-based organizations ... and you may also be interested in this link:  Go to: 02-04-2012 Orthodox Catholics, Roman Catholics, Lutherans, and many others asked to Unite for this reason...

 

    Aside from that particular issue involving "medical" rights and "religious" rights, we turn to another item that infringes upon "Religion" although the primary thrust of the article is one's house/home... Go To: 02-06-2012 OUR NEW POLICE STATE: Is Your house, home, even your church, safe from unlawful Police Entry?

 

    Thus one has only to ask, "Who is that guy sitting in the White House these days?"  Well, that too is answered by the following link as a starter.  Go To: 01-29-2012 OBama is caught in lies and the law in Georgia

     From Saint Jerome Emiliani (1481 - 1537) as brought to us by Brother Richard Higgins, you may wish to consider the following....

"If then you remain constant in faith in the face of trial, the Lord will give you peace and rest for a time in this world, and forever in the next." - Saint Jerome Emiliani (1481 - 1537) Feast Day February 8

(with all that is going on throughout the world with increased attacks on Catholics and Christians of all faiths, this is a well timed quote.)

God Bless (Not to be taken lightly)  Think About it!  What does it mean when one says, "God bless" or "God Bless You"?

Brother Richard (Higgins) Obl.

     And even now we are witness to the daily television news media who are not necessarily reporting the whole facts of what is happening to our nation's economics... going further and further in debt to other countries as well as our own people too.  Impacting Charities, Non-Profits, Churches, and worse...

 

    As already reported (See: 01-03-2012 As the Sun Awakens, NASA Keeps a Wary Eye on Space Weather ) the Sun is starting up to a higher phase or pitch of intensity that is bringing about Solar Flares that will become far worse than what mankind has ever seen in recorded history which will have an even greater impact on this earth...

 

    Are you like the many who are rushing out to get MRE's for that time on which you may find the supermarkets bone dry or when the law of the land has broken down with martial law imposed and roaring prices going beyond the roof?  Many are doing just that... And, we have posted information about that too at our DAILY NEWS section.  Hopefully and prayerfully, none of these things will happen... but it surely sounds like it will happen.  People have been watching the horrors as their legislators in Congress biker and fight amongst each other, doing what they want to do and not what the Will of the People want them to do... We see candidates for the office of the President use negative adds about each other and not a one of them seem to have a clean slate of sorts... It is again about, money and power!  Certainly its not about people, except when and where they can be controlled without their consent.

 

Which means your very religious rights are being destroyed along with your civil liberties as provided in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. 

 

    About the only candidate who isn't acting like a gigolo to the voters appears to be even keeled Rick Santorum, it would seem, ? ? ? Not one of the Candidates actually meets the standard of having a true American concern for the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the voters of this nation... Yet, the least likely to do them wrong appears to be Santorum... thus far... Politicians are like the Sanhedrin and Pharisess of the times of Jesus Christ's life on earth!

 

    So, the last question may be, "What are you going to do?" 

 

    My suggestion is to read the article, "Prayer Changes Your Brain in 4 Astonishing Ways"  and probably "The Tragic Story of Christianity: How a Pacifist Religion Was Hijacked by Rabid Warmongering Elites" for a real dose of reality... in your spirit and in your life....

 

    Truthfully, there are very many news articles that can be accessed at this website by exploring the links such as DAILY NEWS on the "Home Page" and the DAILY NEWS ARCHIVE....

 

    Prayer from the heart can be one of the most powerful influence we have to change things... Changing things through prayer must be honest, truthful, open to God in speaking to Him and asking for help!  Help will come, when there are more than enough people to pray daily... Yes, I said, DAILY!   It costs nothing but a little time at night or in the morning or even during the day... constant prayer, consistent prayer, honest prayer from the heart!

 

    Before I close this missive, I would strongly suggest you read two articles on ISLAM or what are called MUSLIM... The first article can be click on here... The second article can be clicked on here...

 

   Asking for you prayers of the heart, mind and soul, know that I am;

For the New Year of 2012

 

[ From the Staff at Apostle1.com: Many of you already have experienced the numerous times in which our Vladyka has attempted to provide advice to many of you about what may happen in times to come.  And, for some of you, the times have come... and passed.  Thus, we provide this reminder so that those who may read the following from our Vladyka may learn and know that he is not bluffing or full of 'hot air' as some have said.  While he does not claim to be a foreseer or have clairvoyance whatsoever, the signs of the times and being in touch with those whom our Vladyka maintains contact, surely provides a means for him to write the following as well. Take heed and be prepared both spiritually and materially! You have nothing to loose except your faith and your freedoms! ]

 

Beloved in Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Theotokos

and to those who view this message; Blessings indeed;

 

    With the New Year begun, we are aware of the perilous predications that have been given out as though this may be the last year for this earth... but, it is truly believed that the world will indeed continue because certain predictions from Holy Writ will have to take place before the world, as we know it, is destroyed.  Who knows, but God, that anything will happen, although the signs of the times might cause for reconsideration by many of you.  You may wish to view some of the issues pertaining to Predictions by clicking on this link...

 

    All to often we are assaulted by thoughts, images and words that make us stop and wonder about what is going on around us.  Sometimes such leads to actions and activities not necessarily wholesome.  Others may lead us into depression.  And yet others may lead us to take an attitude of, "Oh well... " and go on in life without doing any thing beyond our normal daily routine.  I make no apology for my verbosity this time around... Lest you pay a high price for failure to consider what I ask of you in spirit and in truth as you continue to read this!  For not only you and me, but for so many others near and far will be affected in one form or another by your failure to consider, pray and act!

 

    This was brought to my attention by many e-mails from both faithful and friends who had been told that the 911 inaugural celebration of the Twin Towers and what has been built in memory, would not allow for any "Christian Prayers".  What was even worse, is the fact that while there was never, ever an Islamic (Muslim) Mosque on the 911 site when the Twin Towers were destroyed by Muslim fanatics... our so-called leaders have built a Muslim Mosque on the site. 

 

    What is even more worse than this is the fact that a Greek Orthodox Church was destroyed in the attack on the Twin Towers in New York City on 911 (ten years ago)... and Federal, State or local governments refuse to rebuild the Greek Orthodox Church.  They, misguided by the U.S. Constitution, refused!  Yet, our very governments have spent billions upon billions to rebuild Muslim (Satanic Religion of Islam) Mosques in Iraq and other countries without rebuilding those Christian churches destroyed by the very same Muslim people who also murdered thousands upon thousands of good Christians.  What does this tell you about God's lifting of His hand from the United States of America? 

 

    Our Country is in support of a Palestinian state (Muslim - Religion of Islam) and tells Israel to basically, so-to-speak, stand down...  while the satanic religion's followers, Muslims, launches their attacks against Israel and have been refusing to accept Israel's right to be a sovereign nation.  Our government, the United States of America, is rejecting all that we have once held near and dear in both spirit and truth, even to the subtle but noticeable rejection of Israel's rights too in spite of all the political band-aide speeches by Obama and Hilary Clinton.

 

    It is not the individual Muslim (faithful of Islam) that we are against... so much as the Satanic doctrines and ideologies of their Satanic religion which was brought into being by the writings of Mohammed, a Pedophile and murderer of millions upon millions by his creation of their so-called Holy Book (of Satan) called the Koran (Quoran)... of which parts are copied from the Jewish Old Testament and the Christian New Testament... perverting and distorting those writings via their Koran (Quoran) ... Remember, a faithful Muslim must take their understandings and orders from their Imams who take their orders from others over seas... And, it goes on from there. 

 

    As you already know from the electronic news media (for what is allowed to be made public and much that is not) a Muslim will commit "honor killings" of his own family members amongst other things.  If he is ordered to eventually murder and kill those in the U.S.A by stealth or skullduggery... He must, or find his own family murdered.  Eventually, as far fetched as it may seem... it will happen!  And often it may be our own government who will be behind them as some States of the U.S.A. have allowed for the Muslim's Islamic (Satanic Religion) to bring their "Sharia Law" into effect in some areas ... Their God, whom they call "Allah" is nothing more than the Moon God of an Arabic Pagan religion.  Therefore, "Allah" is not the same God of Israel (Jews) and Christians... Not by one whit is there any relation or likeness. 

 

    It is no wonder many Christian faithful and friends are distraught!  It is no wonder our nation, as well as the world, is indeed bearing the brunt of increased destructive weather issues, volcanoes, earthquakes and more... God is trying to tell us something. 

 

    Christian Prophecy says there is coming a time in which this world will become a One World Government and a One World Religion!  It is slowly taking place now!  And the portents of these things I've already stated above have begun and far too many of you are asleep with your heads stuck in the proverbial sands of fear.  What more do you, as a people of faith need to wake up?

 

    Some, but not all of you are aware that the final pen stroke by the resident in the White House. O'bama, is real cause for concern as it also is an infringement, so subtly so, upon Religious Rights of true Christians of the U.S.A. (Click Here to Read the Article Be Sure to hit your back button to return to this page...).

 

    As a Christian, a true follower of the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ - - -  you are supposed to be bound up in and with your own abilities and willingness to stand strong, to stand true and therefore you must speak up!  Yet, far too many of you have buried your proverbial heads in the sands of fear!  You do nothing to take control of your government to re-establish that which once was... Your children's education in the schools are filled with such that praises the satanic religion of Islam (Muslim), distorts history and denies Christianity.  And, you... are letting it happen!

 

    Your Christian faith, meaning your so-called living, life and belief in the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ requires your external and internal actions to act and speak in order to keep that which is right, true and correct.  But, again, your heads are in the sands of fear!  With the sitting President, Obama, being supported by 80 percent of Muslims in this country because of his initial Muslim beliefs having been and are (hidden secretly) as they are... the proofs have been all around you, yet you have let this country, its legislators, etc. to not challenge him on his birth nor challenge him on his actions to pass certain highly questionable laws, etc. - - - without the full membership of the congressional houses being in Washington, D.C.  A political ploy taken time and again by him to bring about many things that are considered to be illegal and against our Constitutional guarantees of this Republic, the United States of America.  

 

    It has been opined that with the Obama leadership, the whole dedicational remembrances of 911 is nothing more than obfuscation of the true American way as his leadership has been, more than any other, destructive and continues in destroying not only the American way of life and self governance, but the some-what Christian identity it once had through his interference to promote the false and misleading Satanic Religion of Islam... and those who adhere to it!

 

    Our faith depends on our abilities to stand strong and true as FAITHFUL.  To be faithful means to act in an appropriate and proper manner in both prayer, worship and such that keeps your country solid and strong.  This country is not solid and definitely is no longer strong! For the priorities of this country have waxed cold and indifferent not only to the citizens, but to the nations, especially Israel through its promoting such as has been prophesied on many an occasion.

 

    To be Holy one must learn to be humane... and to be humane means to stand strong for that which is right, proper and true in both spirit and in truth!  And to be humane is a requirement to become Holy, to stand up for right versus wrong, for the rights of others and self in both religious and other areas such as the illegal immigration issue whereby Obama, once again, has signed a Waiver for mass illegals to become citizens while they glut and plunder our physical resources to the detriment of you, the people. These illegal are not Christians no matter what they say or they would have abided by the very Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ who reminds us that any other country we go into, we must obey the law of the land... Illegal immigrants do not or they would not be illegal entries into the United States of America. 

 

    What happened during WWII with the Jews being rounded up and taken to concentration camps where they were tortured, experimented on and in some instances used for sex (both male and female) ... no one spoke up or did anything to stop it because it happened where one by one was taken away in almost the "dead of night" to begin with until the Nazi regime realized there was no resistance and then did it openly against the Jews in the day light.  One by one and no one stood up for any one of them until it was far too late.  Believe it or not, that ideology is so prevalent today in the machinations of our own government with regards to not only our involvement in the wars across the waters, but on our home soil regarding the defense of this nation and its economic tribulations, its unemployment and worse! 

 

    There will be many who will take issue against me for speaking and writing in this manner. 

 

    But there is nothing in the New Testament Gospels that would have me say anything different than what I've said, time and time again. 

 

    There is nothing in the Old Testament that would say otherwise either... Yet, many would say I should "Pray" and say little.  I do pray... for even my unworthy repentant self... But I also pray that you will awaken and recognize that Prophecy itself is a warning of the signs of the times which does not negative our use of the FREE WILL that God gave us to turn our lives, this nation and even the world around, away from the destructive path it is going toward.  Doing this not just to save our religious rights to worship in our way of spiritual and material truth, but in ways that have to do with our freedoms to help each other, healing the wound of this nation first before we try to heal the wounds that have been made to other nations whether by us or them or any one else.  We cannot do for others what we must first do for ourselves... And many there are who feel we have helped too much, other nations while letting ourselves to fall into both economic and worse areas which is driving us into becoming a 3rd world country and not a leader... either for ourselves as citizens or others... All of this is one of the causes for which a One World Government may eventually come about... But, what are you going to do about it NOW and for your children, their children and future posterity, if any exist by then at all????

 

    God will not help us unless we FIRST help ourselves as we were, as said, given FREE WILL of which He does not and will not interfere with unless we have done everything possible and then, SECOND, it may be that our prayers might be heard, but not until... (Of the FIRST, it includes the fact that we must act, pray and worship according to our nature and degree of ability as the Holy Apostles of Jesus Christ did and as we, this nation, once did!)

 

    I have been told by several different clergymen that my words are like rain drops that wet the head and body or, shall I say, the appetite of people... but then, the words (rain) dry up and people move on without remembrances... Well, isn't that what they did when the Holy Prophets spoke, and many of Holy Apostles of Jesus Christ and many holy ones down through time and history?  Oh, right!  Lest I forget... And, I am no holy prophet, although I am a consecrated Metropolitan Archbishop (an Apostle of Jesus Christ's in a long line of succession) ...

 

    People do not wish to remember their heritage of true and factual history, the struggles of people before them for the faith and for freedoms... Woe be unto them.  Shame, Shame, Shame!  I am provoked and pricked in my heart to repeat these many things in as many ways possible with hope someone is listening with spiritual eyes and ears beyond their material ones.

 

    One can run and hide behind monastery or convent walls, or behind the 4-corners of their houses and homes... but the truth of the matter is that He, the Lord Our God Almighty, does see, hear and know all that you do. He knows your heart and mind!  Unworthy wretched ones that we are... He will turn towards you with LOVE if you but pray for material and spiritual strength, to act in a manner to set aright those things that need to be done in your house, your neighborhood, your county, your State and your Nation!  For you will create, as a pebble thrown into the water, a great wave of washing that cannot help but turn this country around... but it has to begin with YOU!

 

    Inasmuch as a great news reporter did not say one word about religion, it was implied in what he did say...

"We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine; and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were for the moment unpopular. This is no time for men . . . to keep silent, or for those who approve. We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot escape responsibility for the result. There is no way for a citizen of a republic to abdicate his responsibilities."- Edward R. Murrow (March 9, 1954)

     Because of what we believe has been happening, and of what we know (Click Here to Read the Article Be Sure to hit your back button to return to this page...) we have included another link of great importance to whatever your future may be presented with... (Click here:  Individual and Family Emergency Preparedness Guide For the Times ahead (partially explained )...  and the subsequent links for more information that will be provided in due time...  This could be your last warning about future events.  We are not doomsayers or prognosticators whatsoever, but the minions of evil have taken over your rights, both religious and otherwise... You just might wish to be prepared... What Started with the former President, Bush, is now carried on to an even worse degree by O'Bama... and while many of you would say O'bama has done this country a lot of good... we would also agree that in some ways he truly has, but behind that smoke screen... is the awful truth that many of you are not aware of! And all of this does impinge and hinge upon your Religious beliefs, your very faith!

Requests for Removal of Information 

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.
