Father Gary Sweet known as Monk Michael (Valentine) Provides News and other Information's note, opinion and commentary: 

We thank Rev. Father Monk Michael, or providing us the articles and their various links.

We are greatful to our Monk Michael (Sweet) for his endeavors to present the teaching of the Church to you and those of his area through his website which reaches hundreds and more people who are not TRUE Christian in their spirit nor in this material world, which a truth that many are coming to recognize and realize as they question the doctrines and dogmas of their so-called local church groups.  In these endeavors, we supply you - our own viewers, and those of my own spiritual children, with quips from Monk Michael's web site with his permission.  In so far as is possible, may you be able to direct others to these newly established pages at with hopes that whomever you direct here, will link themselves to Monk Michael's website and his several pages which may arm them (and hopefully you too) with not only spiritual, but material food for the times ahead which many have said are the beginning of THE END TIMES... And, might it be added that the END TIMES is not just a walk in the park...

The END TIMES may not cover a short period as we understand time itself but may extend to 10, 20 or even 50 or more years as we have become witness to the horrible disasters of environment, economics around the world the various policing actions the USA has allowed itself, through its Presidents, to become engaged in as well as, sometimes, the mistaken belief that we have a right to go into countries to remove the threats that our government sometimes errantly believe is a threat to us... and yes... in many instances the real or imagined threats have more to deal with those of religions that are the religions of SATAN, the Evil One, the deceiver, the corrupter who has insinuated himself through "living" "blood and flesh" people.... One can only ask how and why?  Well, as the sphere of Heaven moves closer to the realm of this existence of which the earth itself is but a small part... even though the earth and all about it is the handiwork of God in His creation; the Spiritual sphere moves closer to us... Mankind has FREE WILL, and often mankind makes grievous and most serious errors through selfish ideals and ideas to abrogate God.  We sometimes find that mankind thinks himself better than God, our creator and SOURCE of all life and abundance!  As such, we, as human beings are wont to turn away as a whole, even though pockets of TRUE CHRISTIANS, such as we are as Orthodox Catholic Christians [not to be confused with the errant Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church which, through its Bishops of Rome known as "Popes" who schismed and separated themselves from the ground, root and base of all things CHRISTIAN as established in Orthodox Catholic Christianity...] maintain ourselves, according to our nature and degree of ability as human beings, to that established once and for all by Jesus Christ, His Holy Apostles and their legitimate successors... who, practicing and following that narrow path of the faith, are ourselves "Apostles" in these present times.  While there is not meant or intended to be any arrogance or elitism in these descriptions... they are not fully extent because the unfolding intellect, spirit, practice and belief is an ever growing spiritual and material experience in themselves.

We applaud and give thanks to our Monk Michael in his endeavors

Monk Michael shared a link The Final Playing of TAPS: "My friends,

Some on this page know me personally, most know me only through this page, I was honored to serve in the United States Marine Corps starting in 1969 with one tour of Viet-Nam. I speak very rarely about this. During that time and since then I have heard the Bugler sounding the call to rest commonly know as TAPS far too many ties. I cry every time that I hear it.

I posted it here for our country, what used to be the United States of America; I pray that the next time that I hear this sounding that it is not for the death of this nation.

May Almighty God have mercy on us all.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy!"

There is not a lot on it at the moment but it is slowly growing, thought that I would let you know.

The Devil has become a harmless figure in the eyes of many. Caricatured as a kind of goblin-esque figure akin to an evil tooth fairy, the profound evil of the Devil is no longer really thought of in today's age. In many ways, he is little more than a bad cartoon, and this is no more thanks to secula...

Disclaimer Notice below

You have reached the End of the Article... But, read on...

It is important that you read our Blogs, Webs and Newsletters

{'s Note, Commentary & Opinion:  What does this have to do with prophecy?

It goes right back to Genesis and God's pledge to bless those who bless the children of Israel and curse those who curse them.

That is a prophecy that has seen every empire of the world come and go – yet Israel remains. It may be chastened by God. It may be dispersed. It may be divided according to His will [not man's]. But God has punished every nation that has come against Israel. Each one has been judged.

You can choose to believe it or not. It won't make any difference.

But he that touches the apple of God's eye will pay a price: "For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye." – Zechariah 2:8

As Zechariah 12:8-10 reveals: "In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn."

And one shall ask Him, "What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends" (Zechariah 13:6).

When Israel does wrong in the sight of God... He will punish them.  That means we should not take negative action against Israel whatsoever but leave it to God to do what He has done in the past when they disobeyed Him.

In short... any THING we do against Israel, will and has caused for this country to face such as has never before been seen... ie: environmental changes and worse that is coming... Why do think God is doing nothing concerning the incursion of Islamic Sharia Law of the Muslim's Satanic Koran (Quoran) bible?  Think about it!  Our nation is being prepared for the worse things possible that our American way of life has never before seen and most of you aren't willing to accept the truth when it is very much before your eyes... Our congress and the closeted, disguised Muslim in the White House is but a glimpse of the Satanic horror that is to come! Disclaimer Notice below and what are you doing to put the brakes on them and him?  Absolutely Nothing from what many of us have seen thus far! Nothing!  Stay warm, do nothing and it will eventually happen to you or those who you leave behind to carry on your legacy! And, there is one more thing to remember:

"And He said to them, When I sent you out without purses and without bags and shoes, did you lack anything? They said to him, Not a thing. He said to them, 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 they said to him, Our Lord, behold here are two swords. He said to them, That is enough...." Luke: 22: 35-38  }

Disclaimer Notice & Other things:

('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.


DISCLAIMER NOTICE: The views expressed at this website regarding any article not directly connected to religious content is the opinion or commentary of the author which we may not necessarily believe in, accept or support, and some religious articles we may not accept or support either. We take no responsibility or liability for the content of any news item or article presented as any information provided which you rely upon requires that you, the reader/viewer, take action to verify its worthiness on your own.  We have deduced to a minor degree, that the information provided by the author is such that warrants posting for you the viewer/reader only... and that any statements or purported facts, including any news item, is for you to verify as to its authenticity.  We take no liability and no responsibility for its accuracy whatsoever! 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.
