Saint Nicholas the Bishop of Myra, to Santa Claus
A caring Christmas message for the Salvation of all man kind

Saint Nicholas of Myra that lived between 15 March 270 – 6 December 342) , also known as Nicholas of Bari, was an early Christian Bishop of the ancient Greek maritime city of Myra in Asia Minor (Ancient Greek: Μύρα, modern-day Demre, Turkey) during the time of the Roman Empire

Saint Nicholas the Bishop of Myra became the second greatest miracle worker of God after Moses during his life time. Saint Nicolas was present in the Church’s first Ecumenical Synod in 325 AC when the Holy fathers were delivering the ~Symbol of Faith~ that included the dogma of the ONE CHURCH in the world for the Salvation of man!

THE SYMBOL OF FAITH (of the Orthodox) I st Ecumenical Synod of the Christian Church 325 A.D in Nikea http://mb-soft.com/believe/txh/nicene.htm

The Churches showing up ~after the schism in 1054 AC~ in violation of the ~Symbol of Faith~ and the dogma as it clearly states in [Ephesians 4:5] “One Lord, One faith, One baptism, disguised Saint Nicolas as a ‘Santa Claus’ depriving from Him this way the knowledge of those who love him of the fact that he was a Bishop of the Church (the original/first Church) as created by the Holy Spirit 2000 years ago and a Church Bishop who took part in the first Church Ecumenical Synod in 325 AC.! This information is very important for us to know for it establishes the fact that Saint Nicolas was participating to all the Holy Sacraments of the Church including the Life Giving ~Holy Communion~ as delivered by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost.
[John 6, 54] “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them to life on that last day”

The Holy Sacraments are very important and very personal — they are the means whereby God’s grace is appropriated to ~each individual Christian separably~ because each and everyone has a personal and unique relationship with God in His Church! In most of the sacraments, the priest mentions the Christian name of each person as he administers the sacrament. [A Kor. 4:1] LET a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God http://orthodoxwiki.org/Holy_Mysteries

It is a historical fact that there was only ONE CHURCH present in the world for the first 1054 years of Christianity. The Churches created after the schism in 1054 AC that claim that Saint Nicolas is a Saint belonging to their own Church purposely or un purposely disregard the fact that Bishop Nicolaos served the Lord as Bishop of Myra hundreds of years before their own church was ever created!

Prophecy of Elder Joseph of Vatopedi monastery in Mount Athos

John 17. 3.jpg

The 3rd World War.                                                                                                                             Mount Athos where monks seek to expirience a live attestation of the reality of God!

It is well known God does not sent Prophets to nations he does not favor. There are no more prophets in the Jewish nation since the crucifixion of Jesus Christ who is considered by the Christian Orthodox Church to be God Logos. Jesus is the Logos of the Father, (God Logos)) the second person of the Holy Triad, and con substantial to the Father and the Holy Spirit.
The Apostles, the Saints and the Prophets, have One thing in common and that is the infallible Holy Spirit, therefore the things that they reveal to us are not only always true but they also express the Will, the Wisdom, and the All Knowledge of God. The prophecies you about to see were delivered beginning as early as the 4th century A.D. They started tthe 4th century with Saint Methodios, and continue thru out the ages with Orthodox Prophets such as Saint Tarasios, Leontios the wise, Saint Andrew who pretended to be unhinged, Saint Nielos, and Saint Kosmas the Etolian.

The prophecies describe a Third World War, which will begin when Turkey invades Greece. The most horrid war of all times, 18 nations battle ling out in Constantinople (Smyrna) against the blonde nation (……) and its allies that will have as consequence the “bloodiest war ever” known to man the number 700 million.

During this third world war those enslaving the world by diabolical means who have collected the wealth of all the nations are going to vanish during the war ~by the hand of their own armies~!

The nations serving pagan gods and their inhumane governments will turn their weapons -against each other- upon the command of Lord Jesus who they have persecuted for the past 2000 years. Greek people generally do want any harm come to Turkish people however because of the war one third of the Turkish nation will go to the depths of Asia, one third will become Orthodox Christian one third will vanish in the war. From the ashes of the war a New Byzantine Empire rises. According to prophesies the new empire will have as King a resurrected (by God) Orthodox monk named John, (Ioannis) who will then govern the world with the aid of 2 angels on his side (messengers from God) strictly by the law of God. He will be the “hand” of God for all matters and the remaining people on earth will have no doubt of John’s authority. The remaining powerful nations of the world opposing the new King (a man that is Holy) will -VANISH – by the hand of God.

The devil knows all these prophesies…however he allows people to believe that ~a new world order is coming~ so they can keep on their inhuman behaviour till he can collect their souls when they die during the bloodiest of wars of all history!
God loves all of His people in all Nations equally and this is why the prophesies belong to all.
My self my brothers and sisters I am like a mail man. I do not make the news…I only bring them!

A PICTURE OF PARADISE and the HEAVENLY KINGDOM

“You can not come to where I am going with sins”. [John 8:21]                                                  A “ PICTURE” OF PARADISE AFTER HIS SECOND COMING

PARADISE will be for all those who were GOOD FOR THOSE WHO KEPT THEIR CONSIENCE UNSOILED!

The conscience which is described to be LAW testifies to the present of God in the heart without His presence and without hindering man’s freedom! According to the Holy Bible Paradise will belong to those who have never heard of Lord Jesus who have kept their conscience/Law unsoiled! [Romans 2:14] “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves”.

Paradise Kingdom.jpg

Icon: Paradise and the Heavenly Kingdom

THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM BELONGS ONLY TO THOSE BECOMING HOLY!              [Luke 17:21] No one will say, “Look here it is”! Or, “There it is!” because the Kingdom of God is within you”.

To most Christians the Heavenly Kingdom is a description of the HOLY CITY ( a place) known as the new Jerusalem [Rev 21:2]. In our picture shown above allow me for a few minutes to describe the bright light behind the couple walking as the Heavenly kingdom! To those who have had a personal relationship with God (His Saints) they reveal that the Heavenly Kingdom is not a place  but IT IS A WAY OF BEING! [Gal 2:20] “So that it is no longer I who live but it is Christ who lives in me” Paul admits that God (Christ) lives in him, making him this way part man and part god- a god-man by His Grace, a way of being never seen on heaven or earth before a new creation! [Galatians 6:15 “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature”. The heavenly Kingdom is a description of the UNION of man with Triad God God Creator begotten and experienced from this here life. (Luke 17:21) No one will say, “Look here it is”! Or, “There it is!” because the Kingdom of God is within you”. This is how the Apostles and the Saints as new creations did/do their miracles…it is not man that does them it is the God (Holy Spirit) within!This union with God (holiness) is also described in the following two verses. [1 Corinthians 3 :16] Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God”? [2 Corinthians: 4:6)]. “God makes His Light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God’s glory shining in the face of Christ.
An important teaching of the Holy Fathers not known in the world today is that both the Heavenly Kingdom that is described as the Holy City coming from Haven and Hell will come into being (appear) at His Second coming when all souls will acquire a body again during the rendering of his Justice at which time “all will be judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works”. [Revelation 20:12] 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. The description in [Galatians 6:7-8] also confirms the fact that the rendering of His Justice will be based on individual deeds. “7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting’.
The verse that is most revealing in the New Testament as to the most important spiritual condition needed for man in order to return to the presence of God is [Mathew 5:8] “BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART- FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD”. Adam and Eve who where/are persons, where given leather tunics (material bodies) in order to be able to cope in the absence of God in the new materialistic world they found their selves in after disobedience and not ever being able to become in His Likeness. [Genesis 3:21] “Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them”
The death of their bodies then (the leather tunics) found their selves (their person/souls/hearts/everything they are) in Hades.The heart is known by the Holy Fathers to be the center of man’s psychosomatic self and the heart is considered to be a PERSON. [1 Peter 3:4] “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price”. So the “heart” as mentioned in [Mathew 5:8] is the eternal heavenly person upon which God will recreate each and everyone to ~body and soul~ again according to their deeds at His Second Coming. The plan that God had for Adam and Eve (and all mankind) remained the same with the coming of the Logos of God (God Logos) who Adam and Eve knew in Paradise. [Genesis 3:8] “And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the afternoon; and both Adam and his wife hid themselves from the face of the Lord God in the midst of the trees of the garden” The UNION of man with God and the becoming a new creation (part man part god) and returning to the presence of God could not possibly be an endeavour that could be invented by the minds of men! This is why after the Lord resurrection the Holy Spirit delivered to the Apostles for the creation of His Church 85 Holy Apostolic Canons that including THE UNQUESTIONABLE WILL OF GOD for the creation of His Church, the Salvation of man, his Theosis, and the return to His presence!
CANONS OF THE APOSTLES http://www.voskrese.info/spl/aposcanon.html These Holy Apostolic Cannons that establish our Lords presence in His Church as High Priest and Mediator to His Father for each and everyone of us ensure mans freedom, they were set forth to free man from his biggest tyranny that is sin, and they are aimed to set man free from his biggest tyrant who is the devil.

LIFE AFTER DEATH BEFORE HIS SECOND COMING                                                           According to the Holy Fathers the Heavenly Kingdom (the city) and Hell are not present yet in the absence of a body after death. Paradise however where Lord Ascended after He had Resurrected can only be begotten by His Saints. The moment of death demons wait the souls with a list of life time sins of all those who were Baptized and entitled for Paradise. There is a trial that is going to take place between angels and demons that will determine the souls ~waiting place~ between Paradise and Hades till His Second Coming. Before returning to His Father the human nature in the godman Lord Jesus, was glorified with the Glory of His Divine Nature (God Logos) as it was before the world was! [John 17:5] “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was”. Lord Jesus is now sitting to the right of the Father 2 natures One God! In the absence of the therapy delivered by the Holy Spirit at Pentecost man can not possibly see/know God in Paradise and live [Exodus 33:20] And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. The Holy Bible I very clear as to who is able to see/know God. [Matthew 5-8] “BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART- FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD”. Demons taking part in these toll houses are fallen angels who God still loves they will always be a part of God’s kingdom and God gives them the right to part take in this trial of Truth so they can know first hand that all of His decisions will be fair beginning with Paradise and the rendering of His Justice at His Second Coming!

HADES before His Second Coming                                                                                                  In the absence of the Therapy (from sin) of the Church where Lord Jesus is present with His Holy Sacraments as High Priest and Mediator to His Father, the moment of death will find all souls driven by demons to Hades. Man will continue to suffer eternally the consequences of Adam and Eves sin which is the eternal separation of man from God! [Exodus 33:20] And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
Even thought Lazarus was a very dear boyhood friend of Lord Jesus when dying the first time he went to horrible Hades because the Church and Lords Holy Sacraments like Baptism that PURIFIES the HEART and UNIDES MAN WITH GOD where not present yet! Lazarus the resurrected friend of Lord Jesus was the first Cyprus Bishop here in Cyprus (the second Christian Church created after the one in Jerusalem ) for 30 years after leaving Jerusalem, and he was known by his clergy to never ever smile. He was also known to often spit on the ground discreetly while making a bitter face. After many years of “questioning” he finally revealed the unbearable horror of Hades while there for 4 days (before resurrected by Lord Jesus) and also explained that it was impossible for anyone being there ever recovering from the shock of ugly things seen and experienced. Horrible Hades remains the same waiting place for those without Baptism till His Second Coming!

THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM                                                                                                                “You can not come to where I am going with sins”. [John 8:21] After the rendering of His Justice Lord Jesus (God Logos) and His Saints are going to ascent to the Heavenly Kingdom. Those accenting along with Him, will not be “carried” by our Lord to the Kingdom (the city), they will ascent along because they will be able to! In the Heavenly Kingdom Lord Jesus will be God by nature, and His Saints will each be “a god by the Grace of God” ! The virtue by which each and every person is was created equal to all people that ever lived in all times needed to return to the preference of Creator God is a virtue that can be easily exercised by all people poor, rich, educated or not. It is the virtue of OBEDIENCE that must be given birth to by our TRUE FEELINGS OF FATHERLY LOVE tward Him! [John 14:21] “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself unto him”

PARADISE AFTER our Lord ascents to the Heavenly Kingdom along with His Saints PARADISE (Adams and Eves) will become the resting place for all those who kept the Law that was unto their selves [Romans 2:14] “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves”.
HADES Hades will no longer exist and it will be replaced by Hell!

GOD IS LIGHT AND THE SAINTS IN THE HOLY SPIRIT BECOME LIGHT                             [Acts: 6-15] ” 15 And all that sat in the He face council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.

Prisoners of Consequences of Sins

The total of humanity is a prisoner of spiritual death beginning at birth with 2 of consequences of Adam’s and Eve’s sins. The first CONSEQUENCE INHERITED for each man and woman born is known as SPIRITUAL DEATH which in essence is the eternal separation of man from God and the second consequence is the death of the body. The second consequence was the introducing in our lives of hunger, pain, illness and finally the death of the body! The death of the body is considered by the Holy Fathers of the Greek Orthodox Church a gift from God for with out it man would not have a way to return to God’s domain.
It was the plan of God from the very beginning to create man to be able to part take UNION with his Creator God to become in His LIKENESS but on his own free will! God begun by creating man in His IMAGE alone which is ~Nous Logos Pneuma~ providing man this way the means by which to get to know His God personally, to obey Him and because he loved Him and to eventually become His LIKENESS which is described by the Holy Fathers as becoming “a god by the Grace of God” or a new Creation part man part god! The disobedience of Adam and Eve introduced sin within their hearts so the plan that God had for them (UNION with Him in their hearts ) could no longer take place. There was a provision within creation on the behalf of God that was to take place in case of sin transforming Paradise a world of Light to the Material dark Universe that we know today.
The historical place of Paradise: sorry in Greek only 1. http://www.oodegr.com/oode/genesis/adam4.htm#5 2. http://www.oodegr.com/oode/genesis/adam4.htm
In order for Adam and Eve to survive on their own as they wished in the absence of His Divine Grace that was doing everything for them they were provided bodies of flesh and blood that were described as leather tunics. [Genesis 3:21]: Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them’.THESE LETHER TUNICS which are their flesh and blood were worn over their angelic type bodies of light in order to aid Adam and Eve adapt to the material world that came to being because of their disobedience and sins! Adam and Eve remained “inside” their flesh bodies while alive being fully aware of who they are and why they were here! After dying their souls;heart left their leather tunics (their mortal bodies) and went to a horrible Hades till His Second Coming! Lazarus the resurrected friend of Lord Jesus was the first Cyprus Bishop here for 30 years after leaving Jerusalem was known to never ever smile, to make bitter faces from time to time and then discreetly spit! After many years of “questioning” by the clergy in His local Larnaka Church he finally revealed the unbearable horror of Hades while there for 4 days (before resurrected by Lord Jesus) and also explained that it was impossible for anyone being there ever recovering from the shock of ugly things seen and experienced. Lazarus video of Church and His resting place http://www.cyprusisland.net/churches/church-saint-lazarus
All of Adams and Eves sins remained in their hearts during their exit from Paradise and any other sins acquired while alive on earth remained WITHIN THEIR HEARTS when they died! This is why the HEART is known to be a PERSON it represents EVERYTHING EACH AND EVERYONE OF US ARE AFTER IT LEAVES THE BODY! [1 Peter 3:4] “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price”
THE PROPLEM IN RETURNING TO THE PRESENCE OF CREADOR GOD IS NOT ONLY THE BODY (the leather tunics begotten as a consequence from sin ) BUT THE HEART THAT HAD BECOME ILL BEGOTEN from daily life in the absence of God! [Matthew 15-19] “FOR OUT OF THE HEART PROCEED EVIL THOUGHTS MURDERS ADULTERIES FORNICATIONS THEFTS FALSE WITNESS BLASPHEMIES”
Lord Jesus/God Logos (the Logos of the Father) took upon Himself ~the flesh and blood of man likewise~ in order to become the firsrt born from the death “that in all things he might have the pre-eminence”[Hebrews 2.14] “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil”; After dying SINNELESS and assenting to His Father Lord Jesus (God Logos) became the “head of the body the Church”. A head, is a head of a body and a body belongs to a head in a way they are undivided. Lord Jesus/God Logos became the High Priest of the Body the Church [Hebrews 4: 14] “For we have a great Priest who has gone into the very presence of God” He became High Priest and Mediator to His Father enabling those baptized and receiving the Holy Spirit within TO BE REDEEMED FROM ALL SIN, to purify the heart (only God can forgive sins) and become MEMBERS OF THE BODY [Α Colossians 1:18] “He is the head of his body, the Church; He is the source of the body’s life” During Baptism a person UNIDES WITH GOD (as God desired it from the beginning) and receives the gifts of the Holy Spirit however it is up to each and every individual to energize them or set them in motion at will based on their greatest gift from God which is their freedom. http://orthodoxinfo.com/general/stjohn_church.aspx You can understand now beloved how without Baptism that redeems ALL SINS ~life after death~ conditions will remain the same as before the coming of Lord Jesus where there was no hope no Salvation! Returning to the presence of God is only possible by those with a pure heart. [Matthew 5-8] “BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART- FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD”. ALL OTHERS CARRIYNG THE CONCEQUENCES OF THE PROPATERI SIN WILL NOT BE ABLE TO EVER KNOW GOD PERSONALLY NO MATTER HOW MUCH LORD JESUS LOVES THEM AND WANTS TO…. BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT EVER BE ABLE TO! Without the THERAPY FROM SIN provided by the Church life after death conditions will remain the same as before the coming of Lord Jesus and the creation of His Church where there was no hope no Salvation! [Exodus 33:20] And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. Only Lord Jesus being present in His Church with His Holy Sacraments as High Priest and Mediator to His Father CAN SAVE Humanity!
Ierotheos Metropolitan of Naupaktos about Greek Orthodox Baptism “Through the “rite of birth in God”, holy baptism, man’s nous (mind) is illuminated, freed from slavery to sin and the devil, and is united with God. The word Salvation means “salvation from death” and the word “death” means the eternal separation of man from God!
[Revelation 21:6] “Lord Jesus Christ is the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the CAUSE of the CREATIONAL BEGINNING, the CAUSATION OF CREATION, the SUPREME and UPMOST PURPOSE FOR ALL CREATIONS
GOD IS LIGHT AND THE SAINTS IN THE HOLY SPIRIT BECOME LIGHT [Acts: 6-15] ” 15 And all that sat in the He face council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel. The Image and Likeness of God https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezItFNpdnVY&feature=youtu.be

ECUMENISM is a horrible LIE about LOVE

ECUMENISM is a horrible LIE about LOVE that ignore/distort the life saving commandments (canons) of the HOLY SPIRIT begotten the day of Pentecost  depriving this way all humanity the ONLY MEANS for man’s Theosis/Salvation and his return home back to the presence of his Creator God! The Holy Spirit delivered to the Apostles the day Pentecost 85 Holy Apostolic Cannons  that include the WILL of God ~ONCE AND FOR ALL~ for the Salvation of mankind! http://www.voskrese.info/spl/aposcanon.html

ONE LORD ONE FAITH ONE CHURCH

Paul is very lucid as to a certain characteristic of “the body the Church” created the day of Pentecost delivered by the Holy Spirit. [Ephesians 4, 5 ] “One Lord, One faith, One baptism”.
Why ONE Church, ONE Faith and ONE Baptism?
The Church is not an human made organization, but a living god man organism that is Divine.
The Church was created by the Holy Spirit as a therapeutic institution or a hospital like the Holy Fathers say, to ~cure man from sin~ in order to enable him to return back to the presence of his Creator God. [Mathew5:8] “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”.
After His Ascension Lord Jesus (God Logos) became the “head of the body the Church”. A head is a head of a body and a body belongs to a head in a way they are undivided. Lord Jesus/God Logos became the High Priest of the Body the Church after ascending to His Father. [Hebrews 4: 14] “For we have a great Priest who has gone into the very presence of God” He became High Priest and Mediator to His Father enabling those BAPTISED and receiving the Holy Spirit within TO BE REDEEMED FROM ALL SIN to purify the heart (only God can forgive sins) and become MEMBERS OF A BODY
[Α Colossians 1:18] “He is the head of the body the Church; He is the SOURCE of the body’s life” During Baptism (purification) a person receives the gifts of the Holy Spirit however it is up to each and every individual to energize them or set them in motion at will based on their greatest gift from God which is their freedom.
http://orthodoxinfo.com/general/stjohn_church.aspx

Lord Jesus cannot be present in any “church”  outside the ONE CHURCH (the body the Church) created through the Holy Spirit it is not possible for Him to part take with the Salvation of man in disobedience of His own commandments!

Greek Orthodoxy teaches that it has an unbroken Holy Tradition of spiritual knowledge a way of life (Divine Life) begoten by the Holy Spirit that leads to the mystical union with God also kown as  THEOSIS. The returning to His presence (Theosis) which in essence involves a part take (union) with God begotten by Baptism, is described by the Holy Fathers as Sainthood, Salvation, the Overcoming of man’s mortality, becoming a new creation part man part god, or becoming “a god by the Grace of God”. The verse in (Luke 17:21) describes all those who were recreated to godman by Lord Jesus all those enabled their selves  to His Kingsom.
“No one will say, “Look here it is”! Or, “There it is!” because the Kingdom of God is within you”. The Kingdom of God is begoten when the Holy Spirt makes man the Temple of God!
[1 Corinthians 3 :16] “Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God”?
[Luke 17:21] No one will say, “Look here it is”! Or, “There it is!” because the Kingdom of God is within you”. The Kingdom of God is not a place but a way of being!

The secret in His Church in retaining a realistic and continues relationship with God, His Divine begotten Holy Tradition and all of His commandments that lead to THEOSIS, [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-i0xH2NRUhs] has been the type OBEDIENCE  to prayer that elevates and enhances man’s TRUE LOVE EMOTIONS and DEDICATION to God  made possible by what is known in Greek as ~adialipti proseyxi~ meaning the continues prayer of the heart.
The disobedience of Adam and Eve came about from the ~lack of TRUE love ~ toward their Creator God that came about as a result an an attitude of ungratefulness and greed. (they wanted to be god like God is)! How was it then possible for God to ~part take with them~ remaking them from being the IMAGE of GOD (nous Logos Pneuma) to His Likeness ~a UNION with Him~  a godman by Grace?
In the New Testament the Triad Creator God  has the same expectations as in the Old Testament for all those who want to return to his presence (Theosis/Salvation). Their obedience must be founded on the same type love that He shares Himself  for His human creations that will enable them to UNION with Him in the most natural way!  Hypocrisy Pretension and disobedience to His comandments can not possibly go unnoticed by Him who is Creator God and the~ part take with Him~ will not take place!

The following verse in the New Testament describes everything needed for a relationship with God Creador the returning to His presence and man’s theosis. Thr discoption in this verrse discribes everything  that was needed for the theosis and teliosis of Adam and Eve also!
[John 14:21] “21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”.
In other words the Lord is clearly teaching that  “I will manifest myself to those who keep my commandments because they love me!!! The very foundation for this supernatural relationship/union with God is to love Him…This type obedience He asks  for is like the type obedience that natural y takes place in the family. The mother and father will ask their children to sometimes do things for them. The children truly love their parents and they are always very willing and they gladly  obey.  There is  always real love and appreciation in the family and his is the reason.  There are no seconds thougths to obedience to those who love their parents  to those in their lives who have given everything to them!  Christians baptized ~in His Body~ who love Him obey His Commandments because they love their Father who is in Heaven who are looking forward  to one day join after His Second Coming! This is why the  relationship of love with God is a family type love and relationship of belonging  that is based on an the type obedience that brings   great joy  because it is elevating  and contentiously raises man closer  to God’s Divine Presence!

Loving God and being dedicated the divine life that leads to Salvation  is not about having a strong Faith, is not about knowing to recite the Holy Bible, it is not about the getting together to sing songs or have Christian type celebrations, it is not being able to give great sermons, it involves OBEDIENCE TO ALL OF HIS COMANDMENTS delivered the by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost because in the absence of the therapy needed to know God personally (Mathew 5:8)  ~life after death conditions~ will be the same as before the coming of Lord Jesus where there was no hope no Salvation! [Exodus 33:20] And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

Divine Life
After Baptism that purifies the heart , Salvation can be sustained/achieved by the participation to
1) Divine Thanks, 2) Confession, 3) Holy Communion, 4) Fasting and 5)Prayer.
By Divine providence, no education or the ability to read was ever needed to part take in these for the Salvation of man. Only obedience and honesty to the divine life of the Church.  This makes Salvation accessible on an equal basis for all of the people in the world ~poor and rich,  those who are educated and those who are not~!
According to Church Tradition Saint Clement (Philippians 4:3) who sighted the Holy Cannons by sighing the last 85th one, is the Saint who informed us that the Churches  crated by the Aposles and first Saints, had as their vertebral column the 85 Holy canons of the Apostles.
Participating in Divine Life of the Church requires the up keeping in our daily lives of all of Lord commandments and honest participation in the Life Giving Holy Sacraments that will lead (by His Grace) to eventually becoming  Holy. This type of Divine Life that attracts  His~ remaking of man to godman Grace~ needed, requires the ability of man  ~to deny every thought and desire that entraps the mind and the will in passions regarding earthly (materialistic) things~ The personal entrapment in the earthly sphere that accepts everyday life meanings containing passions is not harmless, for it brings spiritual death (the eternal separation of man from God) because it becomes a source of a conceited pride and individualism that brings on dispositions of greed and hatred which in turn feed unreasonable desires.

The Good Struggle: Life In A Secluded Orthodox Monastry                                                   

 

The Greek Orthodox will never boast that they have discovered Church or the theology for man’s Salivation. Their only boast will be of the fact that they have kept everything delivered by the Holy Spirit for the Salvation of man…unchanged!

Human beings are creations…descended from light!

The Holy Bible and science
Let us now see if science helps theology to verify the writings in the scriptures! Let us see if Paradise can be seen through science Question: Are there scientific discoveries leading to proof of the existence of Paradise?
Einstein’s formula says YES. Human beings are creations…that descended from light!
In the book of Greek Orthodox Archimandrite Asterios Chatjinikolaou with the name “The beginning and the end of the world” there is description of a study that attempts to present a scientific theory of an existence of a blinding light in the beginning… that proves that there was indeed a Voice that was heard saying… LET THERE BE LIGHT!
A priest named Lemaitre who was a mathematician and a cosmologist, studied Einstein’s formulas in order to see “how would they exactly apply” in the beginning of the universe. In 1927 he formulated the concept of the primal atom. He thought of this by turning “evolution” backwards (using the formula) to a point in time all matter (galaxies) were concentrated into one sphere no larger than our sun!!! According to scientific research the primal atom described by Lemaitre was “a fiery sea of radiance”, the light from which it all begun. Genesis :(3) “Let there be light-and light appeared’ (4) “God was pleased with what he saw” Human beings are creations…descended from light!

The first martyr Stephen [Acts: 6-15] ” 15 And all that sat in the He face council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel. “His face was radiant with the Light of Grace of God just like the face of Moses was when he was speaking with God”. This is kind of an experience in His Church (Greek Orthodox today) that has been known to take place with His Saints continuously throughout the 2000-year-old history of the Church

God is Light. The vision of Divine Light (returning to His presence) This is what LORD JESUS/GOD LOGOS told St. Symeon when He became worthy to His presence in His divine Light. “It is me, God, Who became man for you; and behold that I have made you, as you see, and shall make you god”.                     http://www.monachos.net/content/patristics/studies-fathers/67

God’s Divine Light is known in the heart! [Matthew 5-8] “BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART- FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD”. The presence of God can only be known in the heart after it has become pure where God is known to testify to His Self to those becoming worthy (become Holy). [2 Corinthians: 4:6]. “God makes His Light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God’s glory shining in the face of Christ.

[A Corinthians 15.41] “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory”. According to Paul in [1 Corinthians 15:41] after His Second Coming the glory of His Saints will differ in Light the same way the light of the sun differs from the light of the moon. 41 “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars”:
According to St. Nicholas the Athonite , the bodies of the Saints will be like the body of the risen Christ as seen 11 times by the Apostles after He was resurrected and they will be: Soft, Lightweight, Beautiful, Glorious, Transparent, Bright, Warm, and spiritual.The verse in [1 John 3:2] verifies that those obedient to all of His commandments who had attracted the Grace of God this way while alive we will be like Him! “Beloved now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is….
AND THE BODIES OF THE UNHOLY (the likeness of the devil) will have a surpassing difference to those of the righteous ones there will be tough, heavy, ugly, foul, dark, evil stiff and unrefined”.

HOLY LIGHT The Divine Presence in the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre Jerusalem, every Saturday Greek Orthodox Easter for the past 1670 years. The Holy Light seen in the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre is a MATERIAL light (like the sunlight is material light) provided by the Grace of God that appears every year as an invitation to all those Christians who left the Church the year 1054 AC during the schism when the Patriarchy of Rome left the Church in violation of [Ephesians 4:5]. The Holy Light also gives HOPE to all of the Orthodox Faithful who are not yet perfected who cannot yet see (partake) see God in His Divine Light and live. [Exodus 33:20] “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live”. http://www.oodegr.com/english/ekklisia/holylight.htm

A surprise waits the photographer after looking at the pictures. The video has Greek subtitles however the pictures will tell the whole story

LUCIFER VICIOUSLY HATES ALL MAN KIND

He is known to be a fool for trying to put his throne over the throne of his Creator God!

Παραδεισος Κολαση.jpg

The archangel Lucifer and his battalion of angels rebelled against God and started to loathe mankind after finding out they could not possibly become rulers upon of God’s coming new creations Adam and Eve because they were created to be able thought obedience to becoming Temples of God a Temples of the Holy Spirit. Lucifer and his battalion of angels retaliated and tried to put Lucifer’s throne over the throne of God when it came to their understanding that they would have to serve God’s Saints those becoming worthy becoming sons of God “a god by the Grace of God” the same way they have been serving God! Lucifer the ungrateful archangel of God became lordly and became the first victim of the passion of expansionism he rebelled against his Creator God and foolishly declared ! [Isaiah 14:13-14]  [13] For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
[14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
You see all angles were created in order to reflect the Glory of God while Adam an Ever and their descendants were created to be able to accept the Light (the Holy Spirit/God) with in!
[1 Corinthians 3 :16]  Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God”?
[2 Corinthians: 4:6]. “God makes His Light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God’s glory shining in the face of Christ.
Lucifer and the other angels that followed him to rebellion were send way from the presence of God because they were repent less of their actions. (Judah 6) “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day”. Their inner attitude of the fallen angels toward God and humanity is now known (reflected) on their outer bodies for all to know for all to visually see. Doesn’t a goat “bully” or “push” around with his horns other goats in order to dominate the entire herd? The fallen angels choice of attempting this blasphemous and distorted act of betrayal resulted to the withdrawal of the Grace of the Creator God having as consequence their inner ugliness and ungratefulness to be now known on their outer bodies for all to know and see. Be sure, an Ant blowing at the sun in order to try to put it out, is a good resemblance of the “power” of the devil against God!  The devil and his demons do not have authority on man. They can not force anyone to do anything ! The rendering of His Justice during His Second Coming could not take place if the free will of man was deprived by the devil! Everyone was going to claim then and say   ..the devil forced  me do it! Eve eat the apple because she was told by the devil that she would have become a god like God is. She did not have to eat it. She eat it because she wanted to!
The name Seraphim (Means flaming) are aflame with love for God and kindle others to such love. They are closest to God as the prophet Isaiah saw, saying: “And the seraphim stood around Him, each having six wings” (Isaiah 6:2). They are fire-like, “For our God is a consuming fire.” (Heb 12:29); “His throne was a flame of fire” (Dan 7:9), “Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming  fire” (Ps 103:4).

seraphim.jpgBuer the Demon.gif

The word devil comes from the Greek word “diaballo” which means ~distort~ and in this case the word devil means to distort the truth. The devils other name Satan means the Accuser. Satan and his demons show up the moment the soul exits the body and start to describe one by one ALL sins ever took place in order to justify in keeping this persons soul for all eternity in case this person was Baptized (union with God) as delivered by the Holy Spirit. In the case of the absence of Baptism as delivered by the Holy Spirit  “life after death conditions” remain the same as before the coming o Lord Jesus and the creation of  His Church where there was no hope no Salvation. [Exodus 33:20] And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
This means that in the absence of the therapy from SIN of the Church the moment of death demons merely show up to escort the soul to horrible Hades till his Second Coming. After His Second Coming and His Ascension to the Heavenly Kingdom  (the city) Paradise will be is awarded to those who kept their conscience clean. They will live in Paradise however being there without the therapy of the Church they will not be able to ever see/know God and live. Exodus 33:20!
The Conscience
The Holy Fathers of the Greek Orthodox Church teach that ~The mind of the MIND~ is the CONSCIENCE. The conscience which is described to be LAW testifies to the present of God in the heart without His presence and without hindering man’s freedom! According to the Holy Bile those who have never heard of Lord Jesus will go to Paradise if they have kept their conscience/Law unsoiled! [Romans 2:14] “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves”. Furthermore the conscience belongs to the heart and the heart is a PERSON upon which Lord Jesus will recreate man after the heart exits the body when rendering his Justice at His Second Coming! [1 Peter 3:4] “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price”
At His Second Coming
[Galadians 6:7-8] 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
All of the deeds of every one will be known by all of his creations (man, angels.demons) after His Second Coming. All of the reasons of the rendering of the Lord’s Justice on each and everyone are going to be common knowledge to all! Furthermore, everyone resurrected body is going to reflect eternally their inner attitude toward God and humanity for all to see for all to know!

The Holy Fathers teach that all those that had attracted the Grace of God with their deeds who got to know God personally will resurrect with the body of the New Adam (New Creation/part man part god) in other words with Lords Jesus Glorious Body as seen 11 times as described in the New Testament before ascending to His Father.

The bodies of his Saints are described by the Holy Fathers to be: soft, light, beautiful, glorious, transparent, bright, warm, and spiritual
[1 John 3:2] “Beloved now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is….

and the bodies of the unholy (the likeness of the devil) will have a surpassing difference to those of the righteous ones there will be tough, heavy, ugly, foul, dark, evil stiff and unrefined”.

Ierotheos Metropolitan of Naupaktos about Greek Orthodox Baptism
“Through the “rite of birth in God”, holy baptism, man’s nous (mind) is illuminated, freed from slavery to sin and the devil, and is united with God.
The word Salvation means “salvation from death” and the word “death” means the eternal separation of man from God!

Theosis Part I: Glowing with the Light of Christ

[Matthew 5-8] “BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART- FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD”.
The presence of God can only be known in the heart where God is known to testify to His Self to those becoming worthy (become Holy).

[2 Corinthians: 4:6]. “God makes His Light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God’s glory shining in the face of Christ.

God is Light. The vision of Divine Light
This is what Lord Jesus told St. Symeon when He became worthy to His presence in His divine Light.
“It is me, God, Who became man for you; and behold that I have made you, as you see, and shall make you god”.
