Four Emerging Horseman of Our Time

There are four horsemen of the end times. There is a sort the false messiah, a false bowman in white, the second is a red swordsman, the third holds a scale as the darkness of love of money and the fourth is the pale rider of death. The end times are every generation, yet one generation that does not pass away.

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”[1]

There is a beautiful rainbow that is God’s bow. It is a double rainbow, the bottom reflecting the top. It is the rainbow that reflects the two natures of Christ, fully human and fully Divine, and it is the rainbow that integrates these naturally into one. It is the rainbow of the creator who made all people of all different colors beautiful to become Holy. In seeing one another this way, we give glory to Jesus Christ and when we repent we become as the lower rainbow to the higher rainbow; reflecting the likeness of God.

There is a however another rainbow, one that is in place of the true rainbow that has God as its author and creator. It is a sensual symbol of fallen love. The Roman Emperor Nero made what we call today “homosexual” marriage legal, for ‘what pleased the emperor had the force of law’, and civil unions or even marriages of this sort existed off and on in the Roman empire through to Constans II in the 7th Century.  However, it was never normalized within the Orthodox Catholic Church, Western or Eastern. And this ancient wicked mockery of marriage has risen again with the pagan antichrist times we live in.

Saint Paul was very clear to the Romans, and Saint John Chrysostom’s commentary and homily[3] on this subject is also very clear and difficult for many modern people:

Romans I. 26, 27 “For this cause God gave them up to vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one towards another.

From Saint John Chrysostom, Homily 4:

All these affections then were vile, but chiefly the mad lust after males; for the soul is more the sufferer in sins, and more dishonored, than the body in diseases. But behold how here too, as in the case of the doctrines, he deprives them of excuse, by saying of the women, that they changed the natural use. For no one, he means, can say that it was by being hindered of legitimate intercourse that they came to this pass, or that it was from having no means to fulfil their desire that they were driven into this monstrous insanity. For the changing implies possession. Which also when discoursing upon the doctrines he said, They changed the truth of God for a lie. And with regard to the men again, he shows the same thing by saying, Leaving the natural use of the woman. And in a like way with those, these he also puts out of all means of defending themselves by charging them not only that they had the means of gratification, and left that which they had, and went after another, but that having dishonored that which was natural, they ran after that which was contrary to nature. But that which is contrary to nature has in it an irksomeness and unpleasantness, so that they could not fairly allege even pleasure. For genuine pleasure is that which is according to nature. But when God has left one, then all things are turned upside down. And thus, not only was their doctrine Satanical, but their life too was diabolical.

Now when he was discoursing of their doctrines, he put before them the world and man’s understanding, telling them that, by the judgment afforded them by God, they might through the things which are seen, have been led as by the hand to the Creator, and then, by not willing to do so, they remained inexcusable. Here in the place of the world he sets the pleasure according to nature, which they would have enjoyed with more sense of security and greater glad-heartedness, and so have been far removed from shameful deeds. But they would not; whence they are quite out of the pale of pardon and have done an insult to nature itself. And a yet more disgraceful thing than these is it, when even the women seek after these intercourses, who ought to have more sense of shame than men. And here too the judgment of Paul is worthy of admiration, how having fallen upon two opposite matters he accomplishes them both with all exactness. For he wished both to speak chastely and to sting the hearer. Now both these things were not in his power to do, but one hindered the other. For if you speak chastely, you shall not be able to bear hard upon the hearer. But if you are minded to touch him to the quick, you are forced to lay the naked facts before him in plain terms. But his discreet and holy soul was able to do both with exactness, and by naming nature has at once given additional force to his accusation, and also used this as a sort of veil, to keep the chasteness of his description. And next, having reproached the women first, he goes on to the men also, and says, And likewise also the men leaving the natural use of the woman. Which is an evident proof of the last degree of corruptness, when both sexes are abandoned, and both he that was ordained to be the instructor of the woman, and she who was bid to become an helpmate to the man, work the deeds of enemies against one another. And reflect too how significantly he uses his words. For he does not say that they were enamored of, and lusted after one another, but they burned in their lust one toward another. You see that the whole of desire comes of an exorbitance which endures not to abide within its proper limits. For everything which transgresses the laws by God appointed, lusts after monstrous things and not those which be customary.

For as many oftentimes having left the desire of food get to feed upon earth and small stones, and others being possessed by excessive thirst often long even for mire, thus these also ran into this ebullition of lawless love. But if you say, and whence came this intensity of lust? It was from the desertion of God: and whence is the desertion of God? From the lawlessness of them that left Him; men with men working that which is unseemly. Do not, he means, because you have heard that they burned, suppose that the evil was only in desire. For the greater part of it came of their luxuriousness, which also kindled into flame their lust. And this is why he did not say being swept along or being overtaken, an expression he uses elsewhere; but what? Working. They made a business of the sin, and not only a business, but even one zealously followed up. And he called it not lust, but that which is unseemly, and that properly. For they both dishonored nature and trampled on the laws.

And see the great confusion which fell out on both sides. For not only was the head turned downwards but the feet too were upwards, and they became enemies to themselves and to one another, bringing in a pernicious kind of strife, and one even more lawless than any civil war, and one rife in divisions, and of varied form. For they divided this into four new, and lawless kinds. Since this war was not twofold or threefold, but even fourfold.

Consider then. It was meet, that the two should be one, I mean the woman and the man. For the two, it says, shall be one flesh. But this the desire of intercourse effected and united the sexes to one another. This desire the devil having taken away, and having turned the course thereof into another fashion, he thus sundered the sexes from one another, and made the one to become two parts in opposition to the law of God. For it says, the two shall be one flesh; but he divided the one flesh into two: here then is one war. Again, these same two parts he provoked to war both against themselves and against one another. For even women again abused women, and not men only. And the men stood against one another, and against the female sex, as happens in a battle by night. You see a second and third war, and a fourth and fifth; there is also another, for beside what have been mentioned they also behaved lawlessly against nature itself. For when the Devil saw that this desire it is, principally, which draws the sexes together, he was bent on cutting through the tie, so as to destroy the race, not only by their not copulating lawfully, but also by their being stirred up to war, and in sedition against one another.

And receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. See how he goes again to the fountain head of the evil, namely, the impiety that comes of their doctrines, and this he says is a reward of that lawlessness. For since in speaking of hell and punishment, it seemed he would not at present be credible to the ungodly and deliberate choosers of such a life, but even scorned, he shows that the punishment was in this pleasure itself. But if they perceive it not, but are still pleased, be not amazed. For even they that are mad and are afflicted with phrenzy while doing themselves much injury and making themselves such objects of compassion, that others weep over them themselves smile and revel over what has happened. Yet we do not only for this not say that they are quit of punishment, but for this very reason are under a more grievous vengeance, in that they are unconscious of the plight they are in.

For it is not the disordered but those who are sound whose votes one has to gain. Yet of old the matter seemed even to be a law, and a certain law-giver among them bade the domestic slaves neither to use ointments when dry (i.e. except in bathing) nor to keep youths, giving the free this place of honor, or rather of shamefulness. Yet they, however, did not think the thing shameful, but as being a grand privilege, and one too great for slaves, the Athenian people, the wisest of people, and Solon who is so great among them, permitted it to the free alone. And sundry other books of the philosophers may one see full of this disease.

But we do not therefore say that the thing was made lawful, but that they who received this law were pitiable, and objects for many tears. For these are treated in the same way as women that play the whore. Or rather their plight is more miserable. For in the case of the one the intercourse, even if lawless, is yet according to nature: but this is contrary both to law and nature. For even if there were no hell, and no punishment had been threatened, this were worse than any punishment. Yet if you say they found pleasure in it, you tell me what adds to the vengeance.

For suppose I were to see a person running naked, with his body all besmeared with mire, and yet not covering himself, but exulting in it, I should not rejoice with him, but should rather bewail that he did not even perceive that he was doing shamefully. But that I may show the atrocity in a yet clearer light, bear with me in one more example. Now if any one condemned a virgin to live in close dens (θαλομευομένην), and to have intercourse with unreasoning brutes, and then she was pleased with such intercourse, would she not for this be especially a worthy object of tears, as being unable to be freed from this misery owing to her not even perceiving the misery? It is plain surely to everyone. But if that were a grievous thing, neither is this less so than that. For to be insulted by one’s own kinsmen is more piteous than to be so by strangers: these I say (5 manuscripts I consider) are even worse than murderers: since to die even is better than to live under such insolence. For the murderer dissevers the soul from the body, but this man ruins the soul with the body.

And name what sin you will, none will you mention equal to this lawlessness. And if they that suffer such things perceived them, they would accept ten thousand deaths so they might not suffer this evil. For there is not, there surely is not, a more grievous evil than this insolent dealing. For if when discoursing about fornication Paul said, that Every sin which a man does is without the body, but he that commits fornication sins against his own body; what shall we say of this madness, which is so much worse than fornication as cannot even be expressed?

For I should not only say that you have become a woman, but that you have lost your manhood, and hast neither changed into that nature nor kept that which you had, but you have been a traitor to both of them at once, and deserving both of men and women to be driven out and stoned, as having wronged either sex. And that you may learn what the real force of this is, if any one were to come and assure you that he would make you a dog instead of being a man, would you not flee from him as a plague? But, lo! You have not made yourself a dog out of a man, but an animal more disgraceful than this. For this is useful unto service, but he that has thus given himself up is serviceable for nothing. Or again, if any one threatened to make men travail and be brought to bed, should we not be filled with indignation? But lo! now they that have run into this fury have done more grievously by themselves.

For it is not the same thing to change into the nature of women, as to continue a man and yet to have become a woman; or rather neither this nor that. But if you would know the enormity of the evil from other grounds, ask on what account the lawgivers punish them that make men eunuchs, and you will see that it is absolutely for no other reason than because they mutilate nature.

And yet the injustice they do is nothing to this. For there have been those that were mutilated and were in many cases useful after their mutilation. But nothing can there be more worthless than a man who has pandered himself. For not the soul only, but the body also of one who has been so treated, is disgraced, and deserves to be driven out everywhere. How many hells shall be enough for such? But if you scoff at hearing of hell and believes not that fire, remember Sodom. For we have seen, surely we have seen, even in this present life, a semblance of hell. For since many would utterly disbelieve the things to come after the resurrection, hearing now of an unquenchable fire, God brings them to a right mind by things present.

For such is the burning of Sodom, and that conflagration! And they know it well that have been at the place and have seen with their eyes that scourge divinely sent, and the effect of the lightnings from above. Consider how great is that sin, to have forced hell to appear even before its time! For whereas many thought scorn of His words, by His deeds did God show them the image thereof in a certain novel way. For that rain was unwonted, for that the intercourse was contrary to nature, and it deluged the land, since lust had done so with their souls. Wherefore also the rain was the opposite of the customary rain. Now not only did it fail to stir up the womb of the earth to the production of fruits but made it even useless for the reception of seed. For such was also the intercourse of the men, making a body of this sort more worthless than the very land of Sodom. And what is there more detestable than a man who has pandered himself, or what more execrable? Oh, what madness! Oh, what distraction! Whence came this lust lewdly reveling and making man’s nature all that enemies could? Or even worse than that, by as much as the soul is better than the body. Oh, you that were more senseless than irrational creatures, and more shameless than dogs! For in no case does such intercourse take place with them, but nature acknowledges her own limits. But you have even made our race dishonored below things irrational, by such indignities inflicted upon and by each other. Whence then were these evils born? Of luxury; of not knowing God. For so soon as any have cast out the fear of Him, all that is good straightway goes to ruin.

Truth without love is not Truth and love without truth is not Love. The error that has come to our time, born of luxury and apostasy, can have no foothold in the Catholic Church. If one loves the sinner one must hate sins, for sin destroys the sinner and love of sin is hatred of Truth and God who is Love. If we do not become the flame of Love, when all is God’s presence, we will be burned and with fire unquenchable, for God is a consuming flame to those who refuse to become like the flame. There is no greater sin than the sin against Love and no greater hell than the remorse of sinning against Love.[4]

There are those among us who have had what are called Near Death Experiences (NDE). Most NDEs are delusional – the devil is able to come to a person and pose as an Angel of Light and convince them that they will enter the Kingdom of God no matter what they do – that God is not really just and merciful, but only merciful despite justice.

However, genuine NDEs are discernable because those reporting them describe hell. And one thing in that description is that the sins of those who are afflicted with sexual immorality, particularly the sins of Sodomy are punished in a particularly horrifying manner, where the worm does not die, the fire does not quench. There is a beautiful river in heaven, but there is a sewer in hell. Unrepentant homosexuals perish in the sewer in hell, ever complaining they were never warned, and ever having the Holy Scriptures over their heads, for they were lovers of flesh and not lovers of God and His Logos.

The LGBTQ rainbow, a single rainbow, flown in the Vatican by the US Consulate and painted on and flown at the Whitehouse represents the cultural perversion of the Sodomite West. It is the bow of the white horseman and the first seal in this wicked age.

Decades ago, traditional ‘mainline’ Protestants began embracing commonplace “gay” ideology. Now little children are being taken to drag queen shows by their parents. Gay marriage is legalized and advocated. Even the current Pope advocates civil unions for the unfortunate and doomed disordered couples. Little, vulnerable orphans are being taken and given to these couples, and some of them have been wickedly, sexually abused. In one famous case, a little child was trumpeted by ABC news for being so adopted. Later, it was found he was taken around the world and sexually abused by his “fathers” and their many, many “friends.”

Children are systematically taught that what is evil is good, and what is good is evil. This crime cannot go unpunished forever. It cries to heaven for vengeance. 

Now it was ascertained long ago statistically and by experience that male pederasty, the forcing of adult males on younger non-adult males, was a crime committed almost exclusively by homosexuals. It was so established by numerous databases, including the United States military. Further, every Roman Priest caught up in the child abuse sex scandal of over 4000 studied had a previous homosexual experience. One can ignore data and facts and create lying narratives and believe them. But while one may fool most of the people most of the time, they cannot fool God or His people. The statistics are crystal clear but the liars in the University of San Francisco that led the gay pride parade, wicked television along with the liars in modern academics, will reap what they have sown forever.

In America, there are many “Orthodox” and “Catholic” members of the Democratic political party which trumpeted these social changes while the Republicans meekly demurred, walking off with sacks full of money, their popularity and income intact. But as the Lord said, ‘strait and narrow is the gate that leads to eternal life, and few there are that enter therein.’

The grooming, predator west is corrupt and stinks like Sodom and Gomorrah. The single rainbow makes war perverting the word “love.” They are an offense to generations, to God and to mankind. It will not end well.

But the violent reaction to this evil, is evil as well. Christianity is Love in Truth and Truth in Love. God has ordained mercy, not war. But those who feel threatened and have used violence are now sowing the seeds of a whirlwind, for deviation to the left does not justify error to the right. 

“And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”[5]

After 77 years, the Red Army of the red Russ, and likely soon Red China, are on the march. Russia has half of the world’s nuclear weapons. Its leadership threatens use of these weapons when things do not go Russia’s way.

Russia’s leader is the richest man in the world, likened to the prince of Tyre. The Russian Patriarch is, like him, a former KGB/FSB man. The Russian Patriarch wears the covering Cherub and presides on the Holy Mountain of the Lord in the Orthodox Church, surrounded by jewels and finery from the Russian State. If there are poster children for Ezekiel 28, Putin and Patriarch Kirill are it. And this is very sad. It is also sad for the Russians and others who follow them into the “Russian world” view.

The Russian State has ventured to steal their neighbors’ lands, now in the Ukraine, through numerous processes dating back to the early 2000s, and at this writing they have engaged in active bloody war. They claim that NATO was hemming them in. The truth is, before this current conflict in the Ukraine, NATO had a grand total of 25 infantry divisions and 9 armored divisions deployed in Europe. Many of the armored “divisions” were brigade size.

Prior to the conflict, NATO could not have invaded Kaliningrad[6], let alone Russia. The Russian government knows this and that is precisely why they attacked when they attacked. They knew NATO was weak and highly dependent on Russia for energy imports.

People who live next door to irrational, emotional dictatorial aggressors have every right to form alliances to defend themselves. That is what NATO is and was. The Russian Federation under Putin has proven to be violators of oaths, treaties and international law. While they rightly complain of the West’s grotesque culture, they wrongly react with bloody war against their neighbors.

Those who violate the 10 commandments including “thou shalt not kill” and “thou shalt not steal” are not Orthodox any more than those who violate “thou shalt not commit adultery.” One can dance on a high altar and prance about in beautiful silken robes[7] and read from the liturgical books till hell freezes over, but if a man does not commit to true and deep repentance, to following the Commandments, he is in no way “Orthodox” or “Christian.” Putting Russia or Greece or England or Rome or America first, Orthodoxy second, Church third and Jesus nowhere is not of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

‘God wants golden souls, not golden chalices.’[8]  All the gold onion domes in the world does not buy off God. God sees the Ukrainian poor man reading Psalm 90/91 before the body of his dead son, killed by a Russian rocket. God sees the broken body of the boy’s sister in the hospital. And the good Lord knows young Russian conscripts thrust into hellish situations by idiots that run wicked lying duplicitous governments.

God hears the pleas for justice by the poor. The Most High hears the screams of children in their final moments. The Lord will have vengeance and He shall repay. Russian State actors should remember that the disaster of the Soviet Union and the martyrdom of the Tzar and his family was preceded by Pogroms against Jews. Only Christian love and truth can correct grotesque errors. The Russian world view is sick and delusional, just as the LGBTQ flag is sick and delusional. One delusion and sickness does not excuse another. One vile horseman may lead to another, but only a fool signs on to the devil’s wickedness.

Now there are translations of Saint Kosmas[9] of Aetolia’s prophetic words that indicate that a great war would begin over an issue with the damming of the Euphrates by the Turks, and as an eventual result the Hagia Sophia would be given to the Greeks. Indeed the Euphrates has been dammed by the Turks and water rights are a huge concern in Iraq as the Tigris and Euphrates dry up, perhaps preparing the avenue of attack from the East.

However, the current conflict between the Ukraine and Russia seems centered on water rights in the Crimea owing to a Dam, and it should be noted that there is a Saint Sophia’s Cathedral that is in Kiev. Given the situation with the Ecumenical Patriarch and Russian Patriarch, it may very well be that the Greek Orthodox will extend their protection over Kiev. What was prophesied and written one way, in dramatic fashion, may be something entirely different. Time will tell how prophesies are fulfilled or their accuracy. With respect to Turks in those second-hand prophecies, the Russians are employing as soldiers Chechens who were from whence the Turks came, and the Ukrainians are using Turkish made drones with great effect. One must be very careful about prophecies.

Perhaps worse than the “Living Church”[10], the new Red Church State harlot was wondered by the Theologian?[11] The red beast of atheism is bolstered by those who pretend to be Christian, who accept bribes, who consort with secular authority, who make war against innocents, who acquit the guilty and who act in a way contrary to the gentle, loving, straight Commandments of God.

And with respect to the Red Beast and beasts of communism, nationalism, and secularism; ridiculous, transparent and evil errors that enthrall many in the world, Elder Athanasius Mitilinaios commented on Revelation and illuminated an error that has repeated itself over many centuries and infests the eastern and western traditions:

“…Rome betrayed her great past. She betrayed her mission. She forgot the Apostolic constitutions and she once again began to follow in the footsteps of the ancient Rome of idolatry. Her downfall progressed after her possession by the Franks and Charlemagne and today she portrays a typical secularized church, a church following the whims of the world. The purpose of the Church is to sanctify the world, to have the world enter the life of the Church, not to have the Church espouse the life of the world.

Constantinople, the new Rome, chose the same path many times throughout history. Many times she partnered with worldly authorities and she managed to betray her mission as well. The new Rome did not hesitate to exile and persecute great and saintly Patriarchs to maintain good terms with the various demands of the palace.

Both Saint John the Chrysostom and St. Gregory the Theologian were persecuted, amongst many others. Saint Arethas did not hesitate to write that the conduct of the New Rome is very comparable to the ancient Rome of idols. Accordingly, and due to her conduct, Constantinople the new Rome, was made desolate over the centuries. She progressively lost her flock and all of her territories.

Saint John of Damascus, the great theologian of the 7th century and a great Church Father, grew up in Syria, which was no longer part of the Byzantine Empire. All the eastern territories and eparchies belonged to the Arabs even in the 7th century.

Thus the new Rome lost its territories, its flock and today she tries to hold onto her leadership status through ecumenism, this tragic pan-heresy, while dragging the rest of the Orthodox Churches behind her. Sadly we see these developments occurring today with our own eyes. The same thing happened to the third Rome Moscow. While she accepted Christianity as late as the 10th century, she attempted to supersede the second Rome – after its fall in 1453 – and succeeded surpassing even the first Rome in terms of persecutions against the Christian Church during communism.

I have in my possession a small booklet by the Russian bishop, Innocent of Novgorod, who published this article immediately after the Russian Revolution. Our Archimandrite Sophronius Doukas, who was serving as a parish priest of Kisnovo, Romania, translated it and circulated it here in Greece in 1935. Bishop Innocent attempts to correlate the events of the communist revolution with the prophecies of the Revelation. He wishes to point out the realization of some of these prophecies in terms of the persecution of the Church and the actions of the God-opposing powers in general. Furthermore he offers his interpretation on the special relationships of the great Prostitute who rides the beast.

The Russian bishop writes in his booklet (on page 96): “What is the significance of the beautifully clothed woman? (Revelation 17:4) She is not a serpent. She is not a beast having nothing in common with the people. She is not an unintelligent person who has nothing to do with Christianity.

She is a human being indeed, a woman of luxury, adorned with purple, scarlet and precious gems.  This woman refers to a Christian organization but not to a naked and deformed institution, not a heretical or Protestant sect; on the contrary, this woman clothed in luxury has special laws, great worship and formality. Indeed this is the living official church, the Prostitute. Such an organization manifested itself in Russia during the rule of the red beast.”

There is a reason for many centuries, the Russian Orthodox Church has included in its liturgical readings the beautiful Psalm:

Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goes forth, he returns to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keeps truth forever: Which executes judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry.

The LORD frees the prisoners: The LORD opens the eyes of the blind: the LORD raises them that are bowed down: the LORD loves the righteous: The LORD preserves the strangers; he relieves the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turns upside down.

The LORD shall reign forever, even thy God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise ye the LORD.[12]

These parallels are just too compelling to ignore or leave in passing without comment, because many poor people are being led astray by the “internet”, by television, radio and print propaganda. The horsemen of Revelation serve evil, and yet when we react to them as Christians, we can overcome this evil with good. Churchmen who serve evil must repent, and they must be called to repentance. The call to repentance is not only mystical, it encompasses reason for the Holy Gospels and Holy Scripture are a love letter of God reasoning to man, so we may reason together. 

Jesus told us to see the signs of the times, that they are evil. Whether a person calls himself Orthodox or not, whether a person is a Bishop or Priest or Archbishop, Pope or Patriarch the criteria is the same; judge a tree by its fruit. If anyone preaches a Gospel different from that received, Orthodox don’t listen. We are rational sheep, and if we pray, Jesus, Mary and the Holy Spirit will lead us where the Father wishes. But respect for spiritual ‘fathers’ only goes so far. Poor Kirill. Poor Francis.  

A person can be a father in Christ Jesus, but when they wish to be more than that, when they wish to exercise an authority unnatural and ungodly among the rational sheep:

Then spoke Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying,

The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not do after their works: for they say, and do not.

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all of you are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for you neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayer: therefore, you shall receive the greater damnation.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Woe to you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! You fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifies the gold? And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever swears by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. You fools and blind: for which is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifies the gift? Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, swears by it, and by all things thereon. And whoso shall swear by the temple, swears by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. And he that shall swear by heaven, swears by the throne of God, and by him that sits thereon.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

You blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like to whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

Verily I say to you, All these things shall come upon this generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that kills the prophets, and stones them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate. For I say to you, You shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.[13]

These sayings of Jesus apply to all of us who dare to teach, who dare to comment, who dare to speak up and receive anything, including perhaps the glancing vainglorious recognition of men. It is a hard saying and it cuts to the bone. 

Anyone on a soapbox, be they Rabbi or teacher delivering a sermon, a father who is delivering the Precious Body and Divine Blood, or a Master who is a bishop and overseer is bound and convicted by this saying of Jesus. It is universal and we have all seen what happens when fallible men take on the mantle of responsibility and the position of cleric, pastor, priest, bishop, or scribe.

All scribes like this present author are rebuked. And our hypocrisy is known to the Lord. And the only thing we can do is look for forgiveness from you who read our words. Please understand the fundamental limitations of anyone in a black robe, or wearing a hat, or standing in the ambo and preaching. Understand that one does not follow men or become disciples of this or that “saint”, but rather, a true teacher in tears points to Jesus Christ and says, “follow Jesus,” “follow the Commandments”, “follow the Holy Spirit” discerning the spirit in humility and oppose oneself. For we ourselves are our own enemies. Following blind guides, following men, following ravenous scribes and pharisees is not the way. Following Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

But as the Lord commanded:

The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what you hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.[14]

The disciples were hardly perfect when they were told to go out and preach the Holy Gospel. Most but the twelve abandoned Jesus when pressed on the teaching of the Real Presence.[15] Protestants to this day follow in their example, and this present scribe is very much like the Protestant and knows their ways and cannot help himself in what he sees though he knows he is far from the perfection of a Mount Athos “father.” So don’t follow a blind guide, be very wary and watch. Follow Jesus Christ.

All glory to Jesus Christ! Glory to Him and Him alone, forever! Amen.

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”[16]

Jesus said:

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.[1]

The darkness of those who are blind is the darkness of love of money. Therefore the third rider is black.

[1] Matthew 6:19-24

Recently a satanic high wizard, Zachary King, converted and defected to traditional Catholicism, exposing the wicked plots of those who control the world economic system. It seems from his testimony, the richest people in the world are satanic. At certain meetings and conferences[17], satanists are invitees and function as power brokers. Many of the world’s elite people rub elbows with the current Pontificate, and frankly it isn’t surprising.

At recent G7 meetings, serious discussions are being had on changing to an all digital currency where employers and government could control where and how one spends their money.

Traditionally 80% of the world’s wealth was controlled by 20% of its people. Today the percentage controlled by the mega-wealthy is far above that, and the number of people who control it far below the historic 20%. The current economic system is unsustainable, and it gets worse by the day.

Corrupt rich globalists have created for themselves an evil self-serving system. Many elite somehow believe the world would be better off with far fewer people. Now mathematically and factually this is almost as stupid as speaking of Darwinian processes going to origin of life. Do a google earth fly-over of the planet, or when flying cross country just look out the window. There is a vast amount of empty land and desert that could be reclaimed.

But Governments under the sway of this sort are paying farmers not to grow food! They complain about Carbon Dioxide supposedly destroying the environment but discourage the plants that take vast amounts of Carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

During the recent pandemic governments managed to dissuade use of inexpensive anti-inflammatory Zinc[18] ionophore[19] drugs to treat inflammatory the Covid-19 virus. They managed to pressure most of the “educated” first world to use highly experimental mRNA “vaccines”[20] to treat Covid disease without proper informed consent. The nanoparticles used to host the mRNA spike proteins in the “vaccines” is small enough to pass by the blood-brain barrier. This was and is a blatant violation of the Nuremburg Codes that are the basis of international law governing use of experimental medicine.

The fourth horseman of the Apocalypse is a Pale Rider. Pale is the color of Carbon Dioxide.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

It may be that CO2 is responsible for “climate change” but given the quality of our modern science, many doubt this. Many rivers are now drying, and the planet seems to be dying. Is it dying because of CO2, or is it dying because we were poor stewards of our planet in general? There are solutions to the problem of CO2 that do not require drastic control of populations – power to kill with sword and hunger as many elites seem keen on doing.

Wicked leaders who relish abortion murder have managed to convince billions and manipulate populations to blindly follow pied piper sophists to “green solutions” that do not green the planet. The best scientists[22] urged measures to promote land use policy changes to increase Carbon uptake of the land itself and truly green the planet. Farming is good for the land, but farming has been discouraged for some inexplicable reason. The atmospheric content of carbon dioxide, CO2, is low compared to the optimal for plants and a green planet.

If one sees historic high CO2 levels as a potential problem, would not one seek to reduce those levels? Cutting emissions is neither practical, economic nor effective. Improving the carbon flux, taking gigatons of CO2 from the atmosphere would have a positive impact and would “green” the planet.

Over one hundred years ago we dug a canal across the impassible jungle isthmus of Panama. We could build catch basins and coffer damns on the North Slopes of the Atlas Mountains along with tunnels and canals to green the Sahara. The desert land area of the Sahara is greater than the size of the continental United States. Similarly in Australia, the same sort of strategy could be used to green much of the outback. In the United States, diversion of freshwater to the western desert and proper land management, which includes encouraging large animal grazing, would greatly improve western lands, turning them green and productive.

However, the only “solutions” academics, globalist, political elite seem to offer are ones that will result in locking the poor into perpetual poverty if not death, destroy the middle class, and result in the most underhanded sort in control of great nations, as we see today. They seek to destroy the United States which has in fact lowered carbon emissions ahead of Paris climate accord schedule by converting to more efficient natural gas, while ignoring the largest emerging contributors of carbon emissions, China and India.

Meanwhile real and dangerous ecological problems go unsolved. Massive contamination of the biosphere by artificial steroid contraceptives goes unchecked. Dangerous chemicals continue to be released into the environment by major corporations who lead the charge in gay marriage and “climate change.” The situation is insane perhaps because the godless insane who have sold their souls for filthy riches, rule a dying planet. Or perhaps because modern “science” is anything but scientific. Without the Logos we literally, truly can do nothing! 

But if we were better Christians, the situation would not be as it is. Eye witness testimony to some of the evil and nonsense that is going in the world today is provided in the following links:

[1] Revelation 6:2

[3] Homily 4 on Romans, Saint John Chrysostom

[4] Loosely quoted/stolen from Saint Isaac the Syrian

[5] Revelation 6:3-4

[6] An enclave that used to be the city of Konigsberg that the Soviets took after WWII.

[7] 7th Ecumenical Council, Canon XVI. That it does not become one in holy orders to be clad in costly apparel. All buffoonery and decking of the body ill becomes the priestly rank.  Therefore those bishops and clerics who array themselves in gay and showy clothing ought to correct themselves, and if they do not amend they ought to be subjected to punishment… Nor did anyone array himself in raiment embroidered with silk, nor put many colored ornaments on the border of his garments; for they had heard from the lips of God that “They that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.”

– Patriarch Kirill’s fine silk vestments on YouTube lecturing the West and his $30,000 wristwatch (See Canon IV). 

[8] Saint John Chrysostom

[9] Saint Kosmas of Aetolia, 1779+ had many prophecies concerning Greece which came true with precision.

[10] A heretical atheist church formed in the Soviet Union, similar to what the CCP is doing to the Catholic Church.

[11] Revelation 17:6-7 “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said to me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carried her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

[12] Psalm 145/146

[13] Matthew 23 – Saint Paul’s claims to be a father in Christ Jesus in no way lesson the severity against those who, in professional religion, prey on the people. Saint Paul was poor and itinerate, and true Orthodox fathers are poor and itinerate.

[14] Matthew 10:24-33

[15] John 6.

[16] Revelation 6:5-6

[17] The Bilderberg Meeting and Bohemian Grove, likely the World Economic Forum.  

[18] Zinc Lozenges were FDA approved against Cold-like viruses 2 decades ago, and those include Coronavirus.

[19] Zinc ionophores such as Quinine, Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine usher Zinc into the Cytoplasm of cells. Vitamin D, long associated with preventing the common cold, ushers Calcium into cells. Both Zinc and Calcium are +2 cation metals.  Where HCQ was over-the-counter, such as in Africa, Covid-19 death rates were much lower.

[20] The very definition of the word Vaccine was changed to accommodate was is essentially gene therapy.

[21] dollars
