The Opportunity of the Century: A Future Free of the Disease of Phanariotism?

Introduction: 1918

11 November 2018, the centenary of the end of the First World War, has passed. And still there has been no repentance for and no renunciation of the imperialism which caused that needless European bloodbath with its greed for land, resources and power, for Lebensraum, as the Germans call it. Instead, the centenary turned out to be a sentimental, if regretful, ‘celebration’ by hypocritical politicians of the slaughter of the youth of Europe and of its colonies, dragged into their anti-national imperialism. Repentance would have meant that there would at last have been justice in Europe for 100 years of Western aggression, exploitation and materialism (whether Capitalist or Communist). For this aggression continues in the current Western-armed and Western-financed bloodbaths in Syria, the Yemen, the Congo and the Ukraine: the same disease as 100 years ago continues.

1918 also marks the beginning of the end of the Patriarchate of Constantinople after it was contaminated by exactly the same imperialism and its lust for power, summed up by the word ‘Phanariotism’. This has culminated in the notorious and heretical meeting in Crete in 2016 and now in its latest US-sponsored adventure in the Ukraine. Phanariotism is essentially the loss of faith which reduces the Church of God to a mere religious institution with its corporate lust for power and money, swimming with the tide of the world. It is this that has characterized the last 100 years of the life of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, ever since the restraining power of Tsar Nicholas II was removed 100 years ago (2 Thess 2, 7). However, in fairness, all the other Local Churches have been infected by the same disease of Phanariotism, not least the Patriarchate of Moscow. What are the three symptoms of this disease?

  1. Modernism

Called variously Sergianism, renovationism, erastianism or caesaropapism, modernism is simply the internal movement to conform the Church to the (secularist, Western) world, giving up the struggle to conform that world to the Church. Modernism stems from the loss of faith, which has seen the appearance of atheist bishops (the former Metropolitan of Kiev, Denisenko) and masonic patriarchs (the former Patriarchs of Constantinople Meletios and Athenagoras). It means introducing the heterodox calendar, shortening the services and the fasts, changing the dress of the clergy, putting seating and organs into churches etc.

It also means imposing such secularism by threat, as the Phanariots tried to do at their notorious US-style meeting in Crete, (‘The Orthodox Second Vatican Council’) two years ago. Today, in the Ukraine, it means enforcing the heterodox calendar, making 25 December a State holiday, as Poroshenko’s US, Canadian and EU patrons demanded and as has been done. It means ‘divide and rule’, following the policy of the Nazis in the Ukraine 75 years ago, which was also the policy of the pagan Romans and is the policy of today’s neo-pagan Romans in Washington, as it sends its NATO legions to bully and enslave the still free world.

  1. Phyletism

Phyletism is simply the Greek word for racism. It means putting one’s nation above Christ. Greek racism, centred in Constantinople, is the standard here, but other Local Churches have also adopted this poisonous heresy. Phyletism has no interest in baptising all nations into the Church, as Christ in St Matthew’s Gospel commands us (Matt 28, 19), for it considers that only one’s own race is worthy of salvation – indeed that perhaps it has, Jewish-style and therefore Protestant-style, already been saved.

Thus, phyletism is inherently anti-missionary, for why bother with missionary work if only one’s own race is worthy of salvation? And phyletism is also inherently ecumenistic, for it asserts that since one’s own Greek race has been saved by the Greek religion, then we may talk to other religions. Since the others are not Greeks, we may as well talk to them – after all they may give us a lot of money. Thus, the opposite of phyletism is missionary work, which is held back precisely by phyletism and ecumenism, as we saw in Crete.

  1. Ecumenism

Ecumenism is therefore the result of phyletism and the external extension of this swimming with the tide modernism, reducing the Church to a mere religion, like all the other manmade religions. We saw how the Phanariot gerontocrats tried to impose this heresy of ecumenism in Crete, deliberately confusing the Church with so-called ‘churches’. However, in this field of ecumenism, there have been and are traitors in all the Local Churches, who are also intent on destroying the chance of the faithful to obtain salvation.

Conclusion: 2018

Certain Russian Patriarchal bureaucrats have also long been involved in modernism, phyletism and ecumenism, making them too into Phanariots. They can be recognized because they promote the same policies of the Phanariots, the policies of Crete. If the Patriarchate of Moscow wants to separate itself from this pernicious disease, which we see is not only a Greek one, then it can purge itself, perhaps in the following three ways:

– Abandon any creeping modernism, make sure that all its parishes follow the Orthodox calendar and keep the Tradition.

– Rename itself ‘The Patriarchate of New Jerusalem and all Rus’, divorcing itself from any Soviet-style imperialistic tendencies and take up the multinational call and challenge of missionary work all around the world.

– Leave the WCC and all other such alien ‘dialogues’, such as those with the Vatican machine.

Only by separating itself from the disease of Phanariotism will the Russian Orthodox Church regain the trust of the whole practising Orthodox world, its own and all those in the other Twelve Local Churches. Only then will it sit down at table at a new Mysterious Supper, ready to greet the Returning Christ. Here then is the Opportunity of the Century.

 

The Third Rome or the Fourth Rome?

In an astonishing interview with the well-named Greek newspaper ‘Ethnos’, Metropolitan Emmanuel (the Greek ethnarch for France and often considered to be the successor to Patriarch Bartholomew) has just confessed a number of heresies.

Firstly, he has insisted on calling the Patriarchate of Constantinople ‘the Mother-Church’ of vast territories, which are completely canonically independent of Constantinople and have been for centuries, and that this title gives it the right to meddle in their internal affairs today.

Secondly, he has stated that Constantinople’s ‘process of granting the Ukraine autocephaly has begun’ and that this ‘is a priority’. In other words, Constantinople is going to grant the phyletist schismatics of the US-run Kiev junta (he calls them ‘the Ukrainian people’!) autocephaly, and that this is not a matter of if, but of when. (Is this revenge for the Russian Church not attending the heretical ‘Council of Crete’ in 2016, with its Obama-esque agenda?).

Thirdly, he has stated that ‘in 1054 Christianity was divided into Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism’! Yet every Orthodox schoolchild knows that in 1054 the Western European ruling elite split away from the Orthodox Church and invented Roman Catholicism!

It is clear that all of Orthodox Civilization, which has as its spiritual leader Patriarch Kyrill of Moscow and All the Russias, is facing a choice. It can, like the President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, whom certain forces attempted to assassinate in Chisinau last week, choose Orthodoxy. For it is he who stated, ‘I am the President of Orthodox, not of sodomites’ and for 13 September has organized ‘The International Congress of Families’ against the anti-Christian globalization project of the New World Order of the US and its EU and NATO vassals. Or else it can prefer dollar bribes to Orthodox Christianity, so committing apostasy from the Church of God and losing salvation in eternity.

Now we see that the prophecy of St Paisius the Athonite (+ 1994), which only thirty years ago seemed impossible, is coming true. Here we refer to his prophecy that a third of Turks will be baptized. When on 15 July 2016 Washington tried to murder the Turkish President Erdogan and he was saved with only half an hour to spare by a warning from Russia, he then changed sides from Washington to Moscow. The time is coming when we will see a Turkish Orthodox Church, opened by the Russian Orthodox Church. In its phyletism Constantinople has consistently refused to do so. (In our parish we already have a modest three Turkish Orthodox parishioners and their families).

This will be the Russian reply to Constantinople’s century of divisive meddling throughout the Diaspora, in Estonia and now in the Ukraine. We Russian Orthodox of all nationalities have known for over 500 years that with two Romes fallen, the Third Rome is Moscow and that a Fourth Rome there will not be. However, first Paris, next London, then Berlin and now Washington have all tried to be a Fourth Rome. They were and are foolish.

As a huge storm gathers on the East coast of the USA, just south of Washington, it too is going to learn that you cannot play at God. Just as the French, British and German Empires all crashed out of history, so too will the American Empire and its vassal in Constantinople. A Fourth Rome there will not be. All 216 million Orthodox now have to make a choice: Moscow or Washington’s satellite, Constantinople.

 

 

Foreign-Organized Bolsheviks Massacred the Tsar, His Family and His Servants 100 Years Ago: Four Weeks To Go

In four weeks’ time we will mark the hundredth anniversary of the massacre of Imperial Russia’s Tsar Nicholas II and his Family. On 17 July 1918 their foreign-organized captors herded the family into a basement of a house in Ekaterinburg, at the meeting point between Europe and Asia. Tsar Nicholas and Tsarina Alexandra, their daughters Olga (22) Tatiana (21), Maria (19), Anastasia (17) and Alexei (13) fell under a hail of bullets. In a ritual of evil the family’s corpses and those of three loyal servants and the family doctor were then stripped naked, mutilated, disfigured, burned with petrol and acid and secretly buried. So fell Christian Russia, which had for over 900 years resisted both the Mongol-Tartar hordes from the East and the Catholic-Protestant hordes from the West, keeping the balance in the world from these extremists.

Throughout the ‘Heartland’, from Kaliningrad to the Bering Straits, stretching nearly half-way around the northern third of the world to three Continents, and beyond that in oases of Holy Rus outside the Russian Lands, Russian Orthodox Christians this year celebrate. We celebrate the martyrdom of the last Christian Emperor and regret the fall of the Christian Empire after 1600 years. With Church services and conferences, monuments and museums, art galleries and films, it will be hard to forget the tragedy – except in the atheist West. Perhaps the lack of interest is due to being anti-Christian and so being Russophobic, since the essence of Russophobia is hatred for Christianity? After all, atheism is always negative, since it starts with a negation.

The so-called Russian Revolution was a coup similar to most other Western-engineered ‘regime changes’ before and since. Jacob Schiff, (1847-1920), the Wall Street banker who had financed Japan during the Japanese War against Russia (1904-1905), publicly boasted of his success in bringing about the coup, with the help of mainly aristocratic Russian traitors and apostates. Imperial Christian gold reserves weighed 1,311 tonnes: they went to the West and not to the people. In 1911 the St. Louis Dispatch had published a cartoon by Bolshevik insider Robert Minor. His published cartoon portrays Karl Marx with a book entitled Socialism under his arm, standing amid a cheering crowd on Wall Street.

Gathered around and greeting him with enthusiastic handshakes are characters identified as John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, John D. Ryan of National City Bank, Morgan partner George W. Perkins and Teddy Roosevelt, leader of the Progressive Party. Western corporations moved in for the kill; Ford, General Electric, International Harvester, Caterpillar etc. Gulag slaves, whom Trotsky-Bronstein dubbed White Negroes, worked harder and cost less than those employed in the West. Over 1,000 Gulag camps were scattered across the bankster colony. The United States and Britain invested heavily in the blood-soaked Soviet regime.

The Romanov Dynasty was primarily made up of Europe’s royal houses. The blood of the martyrs was that of England, Denmark, Greece, Germany, Romania, Serbia and the Habsburgs, as well as that of Russia. The martyred Romanovs could lay claim to being of the essence of Europe’s royal houses, not so much a Russian as a European dynasty. There were 53 Romanovs living in Russia when Tsar Nicholas II was removed from his throne on 15 March 1917. Eighteen of them were slaughtered in heart-wrenching circumstances. 100 years on we now await the coming Tsar, the next Christian Emperor from the Romanov family, who alone can through Christ restore sanity in this world gone mad.

 

The Ukrainian Crisis: The World Crisis

There has been over the last three weeks a crisis in the Ukraine. The head of the US-installed Kiev Junta, the oligarch arms-dealer Poroshenko/Walzman, has been in Istanbul trying to persuade the local Greek Patriarch Bartholomew to grant autocephaly to one of his schismatic groups which calls itself ‘the Ukrainian Orthodox Church’. Neither of the groups concerned is recognized by anyone in the Orthodox world, least of all by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Both little groups were created out of ultra-right wing nationalist politics and represent only small minorities of regional groups, which until 1939 were under Polish rule and before that under Austro-Hungarian rule.

This activity comes at a time when Poroshenko is under extreme pressure from his US paymasters to get the situation in his wartorn and bankrupt country under control; elections are coming next year. Washington has sent its Kiev ambassador to Istanbul to lobby the same Greek Patriarch and another US diplomat has been sent to Mt Athos to persuade the abbots of the Greek monasteries there to recognize the Ukrainian schismatics. This comes at a time when the main source of funding for the Patriarchate in Istanbul, the Greek-American Archdiocese, has gone bankrupt, with tens of millions of its dollars ‘disappeared’.

However, in Turkey the bankrupt US-appointed Patriarch Bartholomew knows that if he recognized the Ukrainian regional schismatics (under the pressure of US bribes), it would be the end of the road for him, his authority was already torn to shreds at his Crete meeting in 2016. Claiming to promote Orthodox unity, he in fact has already undermined it. If next he accepted the schismatics in the Ukraine (as he has already done in the Diaspora), he would destroy unity and would himself fall into schism. Then his only alternative would be to become a sub-department of the Vatican, just like his predecessors before 1453.

But the Ukrainian affair is just a drop in the ocean. The real business lies just two countries away from the Ukraine, across Patriarch Bartholomew’s Turkey, in Syria. And that story goes back over a generation.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union from 1989 on through Communist incompetence, corruption and treachery, the neocon Anglo-Zionist elite of the one remaining world Superpower, the USA, wasted no time in destroying Eastern Europe and then dealing with its next ‘enemy’, Islam. So it set itself up in the Middle East and the Islamic world, invading Iraq twice, and set about creating chaos in Afghanistan and North Africa, destroying Kosovo, Libya and then Syria and threatening the nuclear annihilation of Iran. At the behest of its strange bedfellow-allies of Israel and Saudi Arabia/Qatar, it wanted to destroy the power of Islam.

However, in the case of Syria, lying literally just beyond Armageddon, it had not foreseen Russian intervention in support of the local Christians, some still Aramaic-speaking, and the pro-Christian Muslims. In revenge, in 2014 the USA overthrew the democratic government of the Ukraine and tried to set up bases on Russian borders there, having invested five billion dollars to do so and put its snipers on the roof of the US Embassy in Kiev. Its agents then shot down a civilian airliner to try and pin the blame on ‘the evil Putin’.  Its colonial vassal governments in Poland, the Baltics, Romania, Scandinavia, France (1), and above all in the UK, began their campaign against Russia too.

Thu, we read absurd stories of Russian submarines off the coast of Sweden, Russia election meddling in the US and computer hacking everywhere. More recently, there has been the ridiculous false flag affair in Salisbury, presented by UK State mouthpiece media propaganda, which some (admittedly mainly pensioners) actually swallowed (as they did the absurd story of Litvinenko)! The Salisbury affair (its three victims temporarily poisoned by a NATO toxin from the evil chemical weapons base at Porton Down just outside Salisbury, now all abducted by the UK secret services) has been compared to Sarajevo. After all, having lost two wars, in Afghanistan and Iraq, but with 40% and more of world armaments spending (against Russia’s four per cent), the US elite wants to use its arms and the military-industrial complex, and the banks that finance it, need war.

This has brought talk of World War III. Is this really a possibility? Are we really on the verge of Armageddon? The pessimistic (and sensationalist) scenario is indeed World War Three, Salisbury is indeed Sarajevo. True, on the hundredth anniversary of the Anglo-Zionist backed overthrow of Tsar Nicholas II and his martyrdom with his noble family, three generations after the Yalta-Potsdam settlement, we are reaching ‘a tide in the affairs of men’. But the pessimists’ scenario is not the only one. There is a neutral scenario, that despite all the changes and reshapings, the world will continue without much more violence and disruption than now. But thirdly, there is the optimists’ scenario.

This says that the anti-Christian Western world has reached the limits of its decadence and can go no further. The 90% of the world that is not subjugated to being a vassal of transgender Washington (that is, everywhere except the USA, the Anglosphere, most of the EU, the Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Japan, South Korea) rejects ceaseless US wars and meddling. Russia, attacked and surrounded by the aggressive NATO forces, has been allied to China. Moldova and Serbia still have not joined either the EU or NATO, whose headquarters are almost side by side in Brussels. The present US attempt to overthrow the government in Armenia has not so far been successful, like its attempts to seize power in Moscow, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

Moreover, the key NATO country, Turkey, has been so disgusted at the US attempt to assassinate its popular nationalist President Erdogan and replace him with the CIA-puppet Gulen, that it is allying itself with Russia. Together, and with Iran, they are destroying the barbaric Western-backed and armed terrorists in Syria. And Turkey is precisely the country where Patriarch Bartholomew lives. In Russia, President Putin is not getting any younger and has no obvious successor. Why should his successor not be the long-awaited coming Tsar? This would end the mess that the world has been in ever since 1917 and also put an end to the Balkan nationalist decadence in the Church of God, with its pseudo-calendar, pseudo-councils and Ukrainian schismatics who mascarade as Christians.

We can only pray for the optimistic scenario. Otherwise we shall see ourselves slipping even further towards the reign of Antichrist. Important days lie ahead.

 

Note:

  1. Its President, Macron, is a Rothschild protégé just like his friend Trump, who defeated the Rockefeller protégé, Clinton. The ‘Western’ world after all is only an invention of these financial clans, which in their time financed both the Soviet Union and Hitler.

Patriarch John of the Church of Antioch Condemns Western Aggression

Patriarch John X and other Christian representatives in Syria have issued a statement, condemning the treacherous attack against Syria by the USA and the former colonial powers who divided the Ottoman Empire, the UK and France, on the absurd pretext that the Syrian government uses chemical weapons. He has stated that ‘this cruel aggression is an obvious infringement of international law and the UN Constitution’, as it is an unjustified attack against a sovereign country, committed by countries which Syria in no way threatened. He also stated that there was absolutely no proof that the Syrian government has or uses any chemical weapons. (Obvious, because the airstrikes did not release any chemicals into the air – Editor).

The statement says that the strikes have delayed the investigation by the International Commission on chemical weapons, merely escalates the conflict, ruins hopes of peace and that the unjust attack encourages terrorist organizations and their barbarism. The Patriarch called on the UN Security Council to guarantee peace instead of furthering escalation of wars. He called on ‘all Churches to carry out their Christian duties, according to the Gospel, and condemn the aggression’. We hope that the Antiochian Diocese in these islands will express support for their brave Patriarch, who is a true Athonite monk.

 

 

Repentance?

‘According to information from the Swiss Federal Institute for NBC-protection in Spiez, whose experts received samples collected in Salisbury by the OPCW specialists and finished testing them on 27 March, the experts of the Institute discovered traces of a toxic chemical called “BZ” and its precursors. It is a Schedule 2 substance under the Chemical Weapons Convention. “BZ” is a chemical agent which is used to temporary incapacitate people. The desired psychotoxic effect is reached in 30-60 minutes after application of the agent and lasts up to four days.

This agent was used in the armed forces of the USA, United Kingdom and several other NATO member states. No stocks of such substance ever existed either in the Soviet Union or in the Russian Federation. In the view of the experts, such a concentration of the A-234 (Novichok) agent would result in an inevitable fatal outcome after its administration. Moreover, considering its high volatility, the detection of this substance in its initial state (pure form and high concentration) is extremely suspicious, as the samples were taken several weeks after the poisoning.

It looks highly likely that the “BZ” nerve agent was used in Salisbury. The fact that Yulia Skripal and Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey have already been discharged from hospital (though have been forbidden from speaking to the media – Editor) and Sergei Skripal is on his way to recovery, only supports such a conclusion’.

Following the Trump bombast, British Establishment lies, May’s minority government acting illegally and anti-democratically, bombing another sovereign state with weapons of mass destruction, when that state presented no threat at all to the UK, what will happen to the Swiss report? Will there follow an apology? Repentance? Publication by the closely censored British media? Of course not. Liars do not do that. And how do we know? Because the father of lies is Satan and he too is incapable of repenting.

The Western Elite Backs Down – For the Moment

Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city and be a ruinous heap.

Isaiah 17, 1

Yet more aggressive and illegal Western airstrikes on the sovereign state of Syria have this time caused no victims. 100 missiles were fired off, but most of them were intercepted and destroyed before they could do any damage. Another billion dollars wasted in token strikes in order to justify imperialism, money that could instead have been used to feed the millions of victims of the Western war against Syria, which dared to oppose Israel.

With its fake news about chemical weapons released in concert by Western State-controlled media, controlled by arms merchants and six foreign-owned news corporations, with statements that would make even Dr Goebbels blush, we are seeing with Syria and Russia a repeat of the ‘Germans kill Belgian babies’ stories of over 100 years ago and Iraq’s mythical ‘weapons of mass destruction’. We now see why the British Establishment created the false-flag incident in Salisbury on 4 March. Then, British spies attempted to poison two Russian citizens and later kidnapped one of them, who previously lived quietly in Russia. We see that all this was linked with the greater geopolitical aim of overthrowing the Syrian government, regularly bombed by the murderous Western proxy-State of Israel, so that the Western ally of Qatar can build its long-dreamed of pipeline through Syria to EU-imprisoned Europe.

The Western media have conveniently forgotten how the West invented chemical weapons, refusing to ban them, as the Russian Empire proposed at the end of the 19th century. They have forgotten the thousands of dead and 500,000 injured in Bhopal in 1984 through its chemicals. Meanwhile, Western-backed terrorists (‘rebels’ in BBC-speak) continue to massacre in Syria, using their Saudi-supplied chemical weapons, British bombs rain down from British-supplied warplanes on tens of thousands of innocent women and children in the Yemen, Western-destroyed Afghanistan is ruled by Muslim drug-barons who feed the ghettoes of the West in new opium wars, Western-destroyed Iraq lies in ruins, Western-destroyed Libya and Western-created Kosovo are ruled by immigrant-smuggling, arms-smuggling and human organ-smuggling terrorists, and, in Europe, Ukrainian citizens die every day beneath the shells of the Western-installed junta in Kiev in the war that the Western media are banned from reporting on.

At least for now the West has backed down from starting WWIII, for someone was praying. Just as in 1962 it was forced to withdraw its missiles from Soviet borders in Turkey and so the Soviet Union was to its relief able to send back its missile-laden ships from Cuba, now we see the same. Like any bully, the West backs down once someone powerful enough stands up to it. However, it is clear that now a greater settlement is going to be needed. Having set up NATO on Russian borders in Europe and Asia, despite promising not to, having invaded Russia through its Georgian proxy ten years ago and then overthrown the democratic Ukrainian government and set up its genocidal Fascist puppet junta in Kiev, so many injustices have now accumulated, that the time of reckoning for the West is coming soon.

The Western Establishment has broken its word every time, betrayed the whole free world, including its own trapped peoples, all in the interests of the parasitic elite. It does the will of Satan. As Christians we must oppose it. It is 1% of the world against 99% of the world, which 99% are the real international  community. But the Truth, so hated by the Western elite and beloved by conscious Christians, sets us free.

 

Western World Goes Insane

In the 1980s the governments of the Western world (10% of the whole world) backed Islamist terrorism against the Soviet Union, recruiting for example the terrorist Bin Laden in the CIA, ignoring the (very real) possibility of blowback. After the fall of the Western-invented atheist Soviet Union in 1991, in its demented pursuit of world domination (‘globalism’) the Western world then attempted to crush the peoples of the former Soviet Union and the opposition of the Islamic world, which it had trained and equipped.

Thus, there followed two invasions of Iraq, the destruction of Libya, the attempted destruction of the Magreb, Egypt, Nigeria, Syria, Turkey, the Yemen and threatening Iraq (and North Korea) with nuclear holocaust, overthrowing the governments of Georgia and the Ukraine,  and arming Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrein and Qatar to the teeth. So we see how the pursuit of world conquest over the last 27 years has included murdering and forcing to flee millions of innocent victims of Western imperialism.

Backing sadistic Islamist terrorists in Syria who use poison gas and supporting the State terrorism of Israel, the Western world is now preparing to attack once more the government of Syria. US warships are sailing to mass not far from Armageddon in Israel, desperately trying to obtain the support of France and the UK. Russian and Chinese warships are set to oppose them. Turkish, Iranian and Syrian forces will also support them.

In the UK, whose secret services murdered one Russian over a decade ago and attempted to murder another two last month, people fear. The bankrupt government of the UK has no money for decent healthcare, education or roads, but always has money for arms of mass death and destruction. In France and the US ($21 trillion national debt) the situation is similar. Will common sense prevail over the psychopathic Western elite, which so pretentiously calls itself ‘the international community’? The 90% of the world, where common sense does prevail, looks on and prays.
