PROPHECIES by St. Kosmas Aitolos (Concerning wars in Greece / Balkans)

1.One day this will become Romaiko (Greek) and fortunate is he who will live in that kingdom.
(St. Kosmas would say this in different places in Greece, then under the Turkish yoke, that later on fought and acquired their freedom.)

2.Oh! Blessed mountain, how many souls, women, and children will you save during those difficult years.
(This prophecy was said in Siatista (northwestern Greece) and elsewhere where there were mountains. Women and children made them their refuge during the revolution.)

3.Those who will seek refuge up here in these high mountains will be fortunate; they will protect you from many dreadful sufferings. You will hear of but not see the dangers. You will suffer for three hours, or three days (prophesied by the Saint in Siatista).

4.That which is longed for will take place in the third generation. It will be seen by your grandchildren.
(This exceedingly important prophecy of the Saint, which nursed the sweetest hope of the enslaved Greek people, received astonishing fulfillment. For the years of the liberation of the Nation are in fact the third generation from the time when the Saint made this prophecy, isasmuch as is known, each generation is reckoned as twenty-five years.)

5.There will come a time when your enemies will even take away from you the ashes from your fire, but do not deny your faith, as others may do.

6.There will come the red caps, and afterwards the English for fifty-four years, and then this region will become Romaiko (Greek).
(This was said in the island of Cephalonia regarding the liberation of the Heptanese, also known as the Ionian Islands, which were under Venetian occupation. The French soldiers were called "red caps" because their headgear was red during the years of Napolean. This prophecy found amazing fulfillment. For after the Venetians, the Ionian Islands were taken over by the French, and after their departure there came the English, whose occupation of them lasted for fifty-four years, that is, as many as the Saint had prophesied. The English seized the Heptanese in 1810- except for Corfu, which surrendered in 1815 to Campbell- and in 1864 they gave it up to Greece.)

7.The boundaries of the new nation (Greece after the revolution of 1821) will be the river Asos.
(A prophecy by the Saint in Old Arti)

49.If three powers are in agreement, you will not suffer anything.

50.If the matter is solved with a war, you will suffer much destruction. Out of three countries, one will remain.

51.A time will come when you will hear (learn) anything.

52.Give them whatever they ask. Just save your souls.

53.If they find silver in the road, they will not bend down to take it. But for an ear of wheat, they will kill each other trying to take it first.

54.The evil will come to you from the learned.
(It was by the intelligentsia that atheistic, materialistic, anti-Christian, soul-corrupting ideas have been introduced into Greece from Western Europe.)

55.It will last for either three days, three months, or three years.

56.A time will come when there will not be the harmony that exists now between the laity and the clergy.

57.The clergy will become the worst and most impious of all.

58.In the City (Constantinople) so much blood will be spilled that a three-year old calf will swim in it.

59.Fortunate is he who will leave after the great war. He will eat with a silver spoon...

60.After the great war, the wolf will live with the lamb.

61.First a false Greek will come. Do not believe him. He will go back.

62.The warships will gather together in Skaloma and the red-vested will come to fight for you.

63.The Turks will leave, but they shall return and will come as far as Hexamilia. In the end, they shall be driven away to Kokkina Milia. Of the Turks, one third will be killed, another third will be baptized, and the remaining third will go to Kokkina Milia.
(Kokkina Milia was a region which the imagination of the enslaved Greeks placed in the depths of Asia Minor and beyond. It is there that they hoped to push back their oppressors, i.e., where they originally came from.)

64.So many things will happen that mothers will give birth prematurely out of their fear.

65.No animals will remain. You will also go with them. From Joumerka you will take their breed again.

66.Do not make big houses. Make makeshift shacks so that they do not come in.
(A larger house draws more attention, as being a source of loot, booty.)

67.They will try to enforce a huge and unbearable tax, but they will not make it in time.

68.They will put a tax on chickens and on windows.

69.They will seek to take you as soldiers, but they will not do so in time.

70.The Turks will learn the secret three days sooner than the Christians.

71.When you hear that the war has started from below (the south), then it will be near.

72.If the war starts from below (the south), you will suffer little. If it starts from above (the north), you will be destroyed.

73.The crags and the pits will be full of people.

74.It will come quickly. And either the ox will be in the field or the horse on the threshing floor.

75.It is sad for me to say it to you: today, tomorrow we will endure thirst and great hunger such that we would give thousands of gold coins but still will not find a little bread.

76.After the war, a man will have to run half an hour to find another human being to join him in fellowship.
(The situation prophesied here fits with that anticipated today in the case of a nuclear war.)

77.Do not plant vineyards because they will be ruined like the ones in Dryinoupolis.

78.There will be a kingdom of paper (red tape) which will have a great future in the East.

79.The world will become so poor that it will clothe itself with tendrils.

80.The cause will come from Dalmata (Serbia).

81.France will free many Greek parts, and the Italians will, too.

82.France will free Greece, and Italy will free Epiros.

83.Through three narrow passes, Kra, Krapse, and Mouzina, many armies will pass to go to the City. It would be good for women and children to go out to the mountains. They will ask you if the City (Constantinople) is far away. You should not tell the truth, because they will do you evil. This army will not reach the City; on its way it will learn that the war has ended.

84.The time will come when the devil will make his turns with his pumpkin.
(A strange prophecy! Is it about the technical satellites, which like pumpkins turn about in space and evoke the astonishment of men, who gape before these pumpkins and deify science? By this, we do not wish to depreciate the value of scientific discoveries, but we censure the arrogance of the contemporary world, which seeks to place the idols of the inventions in the place of the True God. In comparison with the enormous spheres which the omnipotence of God has created and released, in order that they might whirl in the vast space, what are the greatly admired technical satellites but small and fragile pumpkins in the infinite universe?)

85.You will see people moving from place to place.

86.Freedom will come from down there where the rivers empty.

87.Do not expect destruction from above and from Skales (a specific area).

88.One loaf will be half lost, and one will be lost entirely.

89.A time will come when one woman will drive away Turks with a distaff.

90.You should curse the Pope, because he will be the cause (of the war mentioned).

91.The destruction of the place will be done by a general by the name...(unreadable).

92.Many villages will be destroyed; the three villages will become one.

93.Have three doors; if they seize one of them, leave from the other.

94.If you hide behind the door, you will escape. It will happen quickly.

95.Entreat that it will be day and not night, summer and not winter.

96.People will be left poor because they will not have love for the trees.

97.People will end up naked because they will become lazy.

98.From up high, from the port the destruction will come.

99.They will throw you down a lot. They will ask to take it back, but they will not be able to.

100.You will save others, and others will save you.

101.You will leave by the mountains on the left, not from the right side. Do not be afraid of the caves.

102.It will come suddenly. The horses will be left tied up at their chores and you will leave.

103.It will be the eighth millenium when these things happen.
(The eighth millenium is where we are now. According to the Scriptures, we are at 7,507 years from the beginning of creation, and we have now passed the middle of the eighth millenium.)

104.Hide next to the door or beside the table, if it is sudden and quick.

105.Many things will happen. The cities will end up like shacks.

106.A time will come when the cursed demon will come out of his wooden bowl (i.e., will be given much freedom).

107.A false prophet will come once. Do not believe him and do not rejoice with him. He will leave and will not come back.

108.A time will come when the Christians will rise up against each other.

109.Have a cross on your forehead so that they know that you are Christian.

110.The army will not reach the City (Constantinople). The news that what was always desired will be fulfilled (the City once again becoming Greek).

111.Go and you will be rewarded on the road.
(This was said in Derbistani about someone who spoke ironically about the Saint. Soon afterwards, he was wounded on the road by one of his enemies.)

112.Tell those idols not to come here, but to turn back.
(As the Saint was teaching in Assos of Cephalonia, he interrupted his preaching for a moment and sent someone from the audience to the house of the governor of the place, to say these words. When he went he found four aristocratic women indecently dressed, who were ready to come and listen to the Saint's preaching.)

113.You are building fancy houses, but you will not dwell in them.
(The Saint said these words in Assos of Cephalonia, when one day he was passing buy a new house. Shortly thereafter, all the owners died except for one woman.)

114.This child will make progress, will rule Greece, and will be glorified.
(This was said of John Koletis. When St. Kosmas received hospitality from the wealthy Koletis family, which had a child of about five years of age. This child, charming in every respect, sat in the lap of Kosmas and fondled his beard. The mother of the child had heard about Kosmas' gift of prophecy, and asked hime about the future of her child. Kosmas said: "The child will be educated. He will go abroad. He will become a famous man. And he will die ruler of Greece." Indeed, the child was educated. He went to Europe and became a Physician. He took part in the Revolution of 1821. He became Minister, and in 1847, during the reign of Otto, he died as Prime Minister of Greece.)

115.You will become a great man, you will conquer all of Albania, you will subjugate Preveza, Parga, Souli, Delvino, Gardiki, and the very stronghold of Kurt Pasha. You will leave a great name in the world. Also, you will go to Constantinople,...but with a read beard. This is the will of Divine Providence. Remember, however, throughout your whole reign, to love and defend the Christians, if you want your successors to retain their power.
(This was said at Tepeleni, in present day Albania, to Ali Pasha, and found amazing fulfillment after some thirty years. He became the sole, powerful ruler of Epiros. In saying the Ali Pasha would go to Constantinople but with a "red beard", the Saint meant that Ali Pasha would be beheaded and his head with bloody beard would be sent to that city. This, too, found fulfillment.)

116.Things will come out of the schools that your mind does not even imagine.

117.You will see in the field a carriage without horses running faster than a rabbit.

118.A time will come when the earth will be girded by a thread (electrical power grid and telephone lines).

119.A time will come when people will speak from one distant place to another, as though they were in adjoining rooms--for example, from Constantinople to Russia.

120.You will see men flying in the sky like starlings, and throwing fire on the earth. Those who will live then will run to graves and will cry out: "Come out you who are dead so that we the living may enter."
(These five successive prophecies of St. Kosmas are in books that were written about a century before the related inventions were made. Hence, they arouse admiration and manifestly testify to the Saint's gift of prophecy.)

121.The evil will come up to the Cross, and it will not be able to go down further. Do not be afraid. Do not leave your houses.
(This was said in the area of Polyneriou Grebenon. Indeed, in 1940 the Italians reached the place called "The Cross" where the Saint had preached, and they stopped there.)

122.When the branch falls (where the Cross is erected), the great evil will occur, and it will come from the place the branch points. And when the tree falls, a greater evil will occur.
(This was said in the village Tsiraki in Grebenon. Indeed, in 1940 the branch and the Cross fell towards Albania, which is from where the Italians attacked, and in 1947 the tree fell when the area was completely destroyed by the civil war with the communist guerillas).

We must entrust our soul into the hands of God the +Father, the +Son, and the +Holy Spirit who, as one God (the Holy Trinity) is the source of all life and abundance for us who are still in this earthly vessel.  He knows our strengths (and our weaknesses) for he gave us strength... It is our failings and sins that make us weak in spirit!  If He were to give us one dollar in conformity to our strength, we should not seek five, so as not to grow faint under the weight of having too much, so that the gift which is intended to serve to the good would not serve to the our great condemnation.  We must flee from our sinful falls not to reclusion, not to the desert, but to self reproach, to confession of our sins - to repentance! Our perplexity, our reasonings and our will - we must plunge them into the abyss of the munificence and Providence of God!

"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.

Missionary Conversations with Protestant Sectarians

The lives of monks consist of a podvig [(spiritual struggle) exploit] of repentance and of withdrawal from the world. They flee from judging their neighbor in his moral falls, considering themselves to be sinners and the worst of all men.

But, when it is demanded of monks and other clergy, that they remain humble and indifferent to questions of faith, then do they cast off humility and obedience. It is demanded of them, by the conscience of the Church, the faith in and for the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ that They rise up when the truth of Orthodoxy is threatened. They are supported in this by a living conscience and by a sense of responsibility for that faith for which our forebears-martyrs and confessors alike-sacrificed everything, even their very lives.  As a result we have opted to present to you the story about "Modern Day Ecumenism and its horrors" along with various links to who just a few of these Synchrestic Ecumenists are who threaten the root and branch of Christianity as exists in true Orthodox Catholic Christianity (Both Orthodox and Roman)!

"Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified.
He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said."
Matthew 28:5-6

 

 

The following articles and information do not necessarily reflect the attitude or beliefs of this jurisdiction or those who are with us in spirit and truth!

 

"I understand the idea of sodomy and homosexuality, but to say that homosexuality is not a sin is incorrect and not just in my mind but all of Orthodoxy and again, not just in Orthodoxy but all of Catholicism and again, not simply all of Catholicism but all of Christianity with the exception of those who have this in their personal life as sin or are very close to someone who does." (Ed. Note: We have never said "homosexuality is not a sin or okay... however, there are those who, being homosexual, are that way for a variety of reasons.  The conversion tactics employed by many other groups, bespeaks of a "politics" that is not wholly honest.  For, in their endeavors they have failed to show forth the truth that one is driven into a "closet" styled of life.  It is better, we believe, to become wholly celibate, be it a homosexual and even heterosexual... and to learn what "celibacy" really means and requires).

 

If a man looks on a woman who is not his wife with lust, he has sinned, if he and she are married to other people he has committed adultery. If a man looks at a man with lust he has sinned the same as a man who looks at a woman. Sodomy does not have to enter into it, lust for someone is a sin and must be removed, now people do this all day long to be sure but it is still a sin. To say that homosexuality is not a sin allows homosexuals to live in sin without repentance and this is wrong to do to them spiritually.

 

It is for the sake of their own soul that one has to recognize sin that is in them and not to excuse it regardless of the sin or the preference of the sinner. Homosexuality is indeed a sin regardless of sodomy, the act of attraction or the lust is a sin even without action and simply must be repented. I must also add this; woe to all who misguide others into sin and especially those who are of the clergy who do this. For the sake of your own soul and others, you must recognize this and repent. I know that it is not easy to overcome and if it is never overcome then one must live a life of constant repentance, that is the only choice.
