Apostle1.com's note, opinion and commentary: 

We thank Abba Anthony for providing us the articles and their various sources for our sick souls in this life as we, according to our nature and degree of ability, try to follow and practice the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ as found in the primary four (4) Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. His and his Hermitage address is below most of the articles and information you may read... be blessed by them and you will indeed become a blessing beyond your understandings...

We believe that what is presented is a step in the right direction to bring our Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith alive to all and a means to cure some of the ills that separate our Roman faithful from the root, ground and base of all things Christian: being Orthodox Catholic Christianity that began in the A.D. 800's and culminated in the official schism of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church from Orthodoxy in 1054 A.D. 

By presenting these articles and informational pages and subsequent, hoped for, other presentations, this endeavor will reach a wider audience and provide a means for dialogue.  For it is in and through the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, our Savior, that love, compassion, forgiveness and understanding may come about.  In saying this truth, it also means that we make another attempt to fulfill the ideal of why we are called "Christian" ...

Orthodoxy is not a religion.  It is CHRISTIANITY itself! To a true Christian, the events taking place through out the world and locally in the USA today is important because of how it may (and in some instances has) affected our religious rights and freedoms here in the U.S.A and in some other Western World Countries already.

As Thou, Father, art in me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us. (John 17:21)


Dear soul, God is One

The whole of God’s creation speaks of His Glory – He is LORD and GOD – He reveals Himself to us in His very creation. While conversing with Brother in Christ Arthur Barnabas this afternoon, we shared the fact that ev...
ery proton has three quarks in it and it is One – every neutron has three quarks in it and it is also One – every electron operates as does Light in the sense of it being electromagnetic energy (three aspects – actinic, luminiferous and calorific) but an electron is One – for the whole of creation bears upon it the imprint of the Triune God who is ONE.

This One GOD who created all things – this One GOD LOVES YOU deeply and infinitely – and yet, He does not force Himself on anyone – He remains available to those who seek and find Him who reveals Himself to those who are listening for His Voice.

Dear beloved ones – come to our Beloved One and Love Him for His Mercy-Love toward you.

The Oneness we have in the Church of Christ JESUS
 
Much like the haystacks in the field of God's Harvest, we are one in Christ.
 
How wonderful God is in the Person of His Only Begotten Son – my heart – this little soul rings out like the bells of the monastery of Simon Peter on Mt. Athos!  Listen to His Voice dear one,
 
St. Paul writes to the Church at Ephesus – the Church of the First Love, according to Christ Himself: I therefore, a prisoner in the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called,
 
“With all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity.  Careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  One body and one Spirit; as you are called in one hope of your calling.  One Lord, one faith, one baptism.  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all.  But to every one of us is given grace, according to the measure of the giving of Christ.  Wherefore he saith: Ascending on high, he led captivity captive; he gave gifts to men.:
 
We Christians are not supposed to be cannibals toward one another – but LOVERS of GOD toward one another LOIVING one another in GOD!
 
ONE-ness is supposed to be who we are all about – the ONE we LKOVE – LOVING GOD without RESERVATION!  O, my God and my All – when will we “get it”?  Loving GOD means to Love one another in GOD.  What?  Why do we devour one another and think that is what God wants?
 
O, dear GOD – such variety in the Church – why not dear soul to who we write – why not respect the variety that is in GOD’s new creations and Love in the Mercy whereby we are Loved – even sinners ought to be Loved – because this is what we are – even though we have repented – and each sinner that we ought to Love was Loved in GOD while sinners all.
 
My GOD and my All – our union with GOD is found in our Love – and our union as Christians is found in the Mercy-Love whereby God so Loved us – GOD so Loving us still.

Remember dear one, ONE is also a whole Number -- for GOD is ONE -- and your uniqueness is in His eye...

Yes, dear soul -- take heart -- anything worth having is always found in the place of alone-ness -- God is alone working in the alone folks that we are --even a grain of sand is alone -- but it is in the midst of millions of grains along the shoreline and the Water still laps and surrounds and permeates the grains -- and we will come to sit with one another in that Day at the Table of the LORD... trust Him -- walk as Enoch walked.
 
That is the great Gift -- our alone-ness is a GIFT... and we think it is a curse, when it is God's Gift to each of us -- we are all unique before God -- uniquely present with Him in the Presence of His Present as well -- and we are Present as helpers of those who come into contact.
 
GOD is always near to us -- so that we can always be Present with Him to others. Loving God and Loving one another.

The Peace of Christ is with you...

Dear one,

GOD will be with each and every one of us through the storms -- like He was in the boat with the Sea of Galilee churning around them, who thought they were drowning -- and He awakened and said -- "Peace, be still."

St. Paul was also at sea and there was a big storm -- and he said to the sailors and guards the Lord spoke to him in a dream and told him that those who remained in the boat would be saved in the end... and they threw all the stuff of the cargo into the sea and held on for their lives -- and tho the boat was finally shipwrecked on the coast of Malta, but they were all saved.

We are in those kinds of times.

Off to the hermitage of Mary now -- prayers following you dear soul...

(Apostle1.com's Note, Commentary, opinion & Disclaimer Notice: We Have many Contributors to our DAILY NEWS SERVICE, as well as many other Updates & Information provided - We are thankful for our Desert Angels, Our Flying Foxes, Our Flying Squirrels and our many other contributors... Even though we don't always give the credit they deserve... We want you, the viewer to know that they are a part of our life and living... They are, according to their nature & degree of ability, truly Christian in Spirit and in Truth for they have YOU, the viewer in mind as a part of their own concerns too, as we do too!

 

However... there is something else we wish to warn you about.

You who are new visitors, may wish to read a very short article below entitled "The purpose for presenting our Daily News section" Sadly to say, we take no pleasure in stating that some of the items we post are not from what we would call true "Christian" organizations. But we post it because it provides another side of the proverbial story.  The Church, after all, is supposed to be a temple for sick souls (sinners) without distinction between their worse sins or otherwise, but it seems to some organizations that they say much about others, but fail and refuse to upbraid themselves and their members for their own sins...)

 

"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

The purpose for presenting this Daily News section:

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"....

[ * Non-Denominational = Synchrestic Ecumenism, Disease of Scholasticism, altering the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ to accommodate the disease of Political Correctness and CULTIC PROTESTANTISM, and the Roman Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church) breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by  - the ancient Seven Ecumenical "Do Not" Canons which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure & refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the other Pillars of the Church, the Seals of the Confessional, but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of Muslim, Islam by praying with them and other heretics such as 'Pentecostalism,' 'Jehovah's Witnesses,' 'Mormons,' 'Church of Christ,' any so-called church with "Community Church" in their nomenclature and others who by their false and misleading dogmas and doctrines are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being so-called Christian] Only a skilled spiritual father can help you!

Remember: You cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be harmed by your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is to blaspheme the Holy Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you.  And when the Holy Spirit departs, the great deceiver (unbeknownst to you) will rush in to fill the void under disguise of being the Holy Spirit!  Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it is the Holy Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and snaking his charms around your mind and heart to feign being the Holy Spirit.  Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.
