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.

A New World Is Coming

In his astounding ignorance, the Hitleresque buffoon and British anti-diplomat Johnson seems not to know that the Nazis were defeated by the much-suffering peoples of the Soviet Union. Thus, Great Britain was saved from capitulation to the Nazis, with 27 million Russians and others sacrificing themselves to do this and free Europe from the Western Nazi scourge.

It is time that the British Foreign Office, whose anti-Russian theories have been rejected by both British scientists and even the corrupt EU, which Britain is supposed to be leaving, employed people with a little historical knowledge and a little knowledge of the word ‘proof’. The Western world, isolating itself from the other 90% of the world, the teeming masses of Russia, Asia, Africa and Latin America, is now fighting for its life. In its desperation US Democrats have begun blaming Russia for losing the elections and others even for bad weather.

The future is outside the discredited West. China has the industry, India has the culture, Africa has the people, Brazil has the natural resources, Russia has the energy, food and, above all, the ideas. The world is moving to a new configuration. After the tragedies caused by the West in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and the Yemen, the new millennium will transform.

The Future of the World and Crimeanization

President Putin won the second term of his second presidency by some 76% of the vote on a high turnout. It was no surprise and, as some noted, the hateful and slanderous anti-Russian campaign conducted by the British Establishment in the two weeks before the election no doubt helped him win by such a large margin (1). Apparently, for the anti-Christian British Establishment, which in its gross incompetence is taking five years instead of two to free the UK from EU tyranny as democracy asked, you are guilty until proven innocent. So President Putin’s popularity, unlike that of envious Western leaders, remains undimmed. However, what sort of challenge could Russia now have to meet?

The Russian Federation is a multinational land, by far the largest in the world, with ports leading to three oceans, the Pacific, the Arctic and the Atlantic, and to many seas. It is an Empire, but, tragically, a betrayed, ruined and sabotaged Empire, an Empire of lost territories and citizens cruelly separated from it, an Empire of martyrs – and so the leader of today’s Christian world. What is its geopolitical destiny? With huge and underpopulated territories, it could absorb Christian refugees from around the world before the end – its Polar Star could become a guiding star for those fleeing persecution. This is a calling, which we may call ‘Crimeanization’. What does this word mean?

Here we refer to 2014 when the Federation offered the people of the Crimea the chance in a free referendum to return to Russia, from which they had been forcibly separated by Communist tyranny sixty years before. They voted massively to do so, returning Russia in full to the Black Sea, the Bosphorus, the Dardanelles, the Mediterranean and so to the Holy Land and Jerusalem. Thus, the project to restore not just lost and devastated ancestral Russian Lands, but all Orthodox to the Christian Empire, beckons. The task of ‘Crimeanization’ means gathering together all who wish to join Russia voluntarily, not necessarily in a political union as the Crimea chose, but above all in a spiritual union.

At the present time the agents of anti-Christian States are filling the world with endless wars, murders, poisonings, plots, slanders, threats, depriving it of even the most basic spiritual and moral values. Russia today faces the task of cleansing this secularist cesspit, into which the world has been lowered since the tragedy of 1918, when the last Christian Emperor and his Family were slaughtered. If there is repentance, ‘Crimeanization’ means that Russia could become a beacon of hope for the spiritually persecuted, not just in Eastern Europe, or in the Western world, but on all continents. Russia could become a beacon, at one and the same time, of the grace of Tradition and of social justice.

The task of those who oppose the Church is to bring hell up to earth. This is what they have visibly been doing all over the world over the last hundred years. From the creation of World Wars and the slaughter and mutilation of hundreds of millions in them and in the abortion holocaust, to the creation of weapons that can annihilate all living things on earth, this is the task of the forces of hell. This is their preparation for the coming of Antichrist, so that he will feel at home on earth. However, the task of the Church of God, now centred in the multinational Russian Federation, is to bring heaven down to earth, in preparation for the Coming of Christ, Who will be victorious. Fear not!

Note:

1: In 2012 at the Russian Embassy in London only 22% of voters chose him; last Sunday 52% did so. Only in the Caucasus did turnout drop: from 99% to 92%.

 

 

 

The Last Civilization

The question of how many civilizations there have been and are in the world is an open one. For example, among others, there are the Babylonian, the Chinese, the Hindu, the Egyptian, the Buddhist, the Greek, the Roman, the Japanese, the Christian, the Muslim, the Amazonian, the Mayan, the Aztec, the Incan, the North American Native, the Western, the Polynesian, the Zimbabwean.

One thing is clear, however: civilizations are always inspired at origin, and are then shaped by, spiritual faith, religious belief. Indeed, it can be said, that the purer the original spiritual inspiration, the finer the civilization, the less pure, the more barbaric. And if spiritual inspiration and purity fail, then the civilization fails, it becomes barbaric and decadent and finally collapses.

Here we should not be surprised by the description of a civilization as ‘barbaric’. Many were barbaric. We know that, among others, the Aztecs and the Mayans, practised some human sacrifice; most others at times practised slavery. All at times practised wars, sadistic cruelty and torture. The Western practises massive child-sacrifice, killing millions of its own children every year in abortion. And each time, absurdly, these civilizations justified their wars, cruerlty and torture by religion, so making it into an anti-religion. We have just seen this in the Western invasion of Iraq, in which hundreds of thousands of people have died, been cruelly tortured and maimed in the name of the Western ‘crusade’ for ‘freedom and democracy’, which words are spelled ‘oil and gas’.

Indeed, this barbarism is particularly clear in the case of Western civilization. This first came into being in the eleventh century and so has now existed for 1,000 years. Overlaying its original spiritual inspiration, it began among Frankish tribes by reviving Roman paganism and then ruthless asserted itself, slaughtering all possible rivals. These then included Jews, Muslims and Orthodox Christians, in its so-called ‘Crusades’ – genocides in the name of the Cross. It tried to deny that they even existed – ‘go away and shut up’ as a British politician said to it last week.

As this Western civilization developed, it became global and ever bloodier, attempting and achieving the total elimination of rival civilizations with less aggressive military technology, in the Americas, in Oceania, in Africa, murdering those with bows and arrows with guns. Thus, it ensured that the great civilizations of the Amazon and the Mayas which it destroyed have only just been rediscovered from beneath the jungles that overgrew them. In this way, it strove to ensure through its unparalleled global aggression (‘globalization’) that it would become the last ‘civilization’ left on the planet, leaving no choice.

This it did by consistently replacing its inherited religious inspiration of 1,000 years before with its apocalyptic technology, asset-stripping the rest of the world after applying the technology of death to those who resisted it, creating: castles, armoured horsemen, bows, cannon, muskets, grenades, industrialization, financial control, rifles, artillery, machine guns, concentration camps, aircraft bombs, poison gas, tanks, submarines, rockets, atomic bombs, chemical and bacteriological weapons, missiles, the illusions of virtual technology….And if these do not destroy the world and poison its food, other Western-invented pollutants, chemicals, plastics and modified genetics, will.

We can compare this with Christian civilization, the greatest rival to Western civilization, which for that reason Western civilization so hates and has again and again attempted to annihilate. Christian civilization is a Eurasian civilization, far broader than simply Western civilization. This, founded on the tiny, Westernmost tip of Eurasia, cut itself off from the rest of the world, creating in its self-imposed isolation the myth of ‘Europe’, a purely artificial construct. It invented itself and defined itself by aggressive technology, becoming the evil empire.

On the other hand, Christian civilization, founded in Jerusalem, quickly spread to East (the word ‘Asia’ means ‘East’) and West (the word ‘Europe’ means ‘West’), to India in the East and Africa in the West. This has had in its near-2,000-year old history three capitals after Jerusalem, the First Rome, the Second Rome (Constantinople) and the Third Rome (Moscow), and thus, by transferring the centre of its power has miraculously survived for almost two millennia.

Western civilization has again and again tried to wreck and destroy the centres of Christian civilization, as in the 13th century, in the 17th century, and then in 1812 and 1854. However, its aggression has become especially clear since 1914. Thus, it invaded the remaining centre of Christian civilization again in 1914, usurping the legitimate Christian power there in 1917, sending in Russian-speaking enemies to destroy it, invaded it again in 1941, murdering 27 million human-beings, declared a Cold War on it for nearly fifty years, crippling it between 1992 and 2000 and, as it miraculously revived against all the odds, again attacks it today, surrounding it and menacing it with its weapons of mass destruction, eating away at its borderlands.

However, it is true that this Western aggression has only been possible because of internal treachery, the apostasy of most of the elite and then of other traitors within Christian civilization itself. This can clearly be seen by the successive defection down the centuries of Russian-speaking boyars/aristocrats/oligarchs from the values of Christian civilization.

However, Western civilization has over the last fifty years or so systematically rejected the source of its own inspiration, ever accelerating its apostasy. This apostasy at first emptied its churches, but now undermines even the most fundamental and universal cultural values of all civilizations, for example, denying that a man is a man and a woman is a woman, as was prophesied by the apostle in his second letter to Timothy.

Thus, the nations of Western civilization, only 10% of the world, gradually become over 1,000 years an anti-religion and so anti-civilization, die out, renouncing the source of all civilizational inspiration. Thus, even its families die out, its peoples are denatured, and Western civilization ensures not only its collapse, but its suicide and extinction.

Conversely, over the last fifty years or so Christian civilization has slowly set out on the path of restoration, accelerating its return by repentance, especially in the last thirty years, to the source of its inspiration in Christ and His Church. It is still not clear how far this still very fragile restoration will go, but there are great hopes – our only hopes for the last Civilization.

Our Credo

We Orthodox Christians are chosen by God to fulfil our appointed destinies. In this age it is our destiny to defy all who deny the Holy Trinity, whether in word or thought or deed. Our God is not the god of others, including those who have for all practical purposes lapsed from the Church and Faith, despite their outward label. Our God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We confess the Father and reject manmade nationalism and idolatrous ritualism, which place themselves above the Father from everlasting. Their victims put their tribal and racist local cultures above God, rejecting His Church.

They say, for example: ‘I cannot join the Orthodox Church because of my Western culture’. How many times we have heard the above myth. Such an attitude comes from the placing of our ethnic conditioning above Christ. They do not understand that Europe itself is an illusion: East and West were joined together in Christ’s Church. At the furthest tip off Eurasia, Europe was invented by cutting itself off from Eurasia 1,000 years ago, in order to justify its aggressive domination and annihilation of all else.

We confess the Incarnation and reject academic theories and disincarnate fantasies, which have no spiritual or moral effect in life. Their victims put their impure imaginations above God, rejecting the universal sacrifice of the God-man.

They say, for example: ‘I cannot live a Church life because of my personal views’. How many times we have heard the above selfishness. Such an attitude comes from the placing of our egoistic conditioning above Christ. They do not understand that the self is an illusion: we are all part of God’s Creation, joined together in Christ’s Church. The Western world invented such individualism, cutting itself off from solidarity with the rest of God’s Creation, man and nature, to justify its aggressive domination and annihilation of all else.

We confess the Holy Spirit and reject pharisaic bureaucracy and unprincipled careerism, which deaden and destroy Church life. Their victims put their worldly interests above the Holy Spirit, rejecting God’s Free Spirit, Who blows where He wills.

They say, for example: ‘Our rules and interests are higher than all else’. How many times we have heard the above artifice. Such an attitude comes from the placing of worldly conditioning above Christ. They do not understand that the world is an illusion: the world was overcome by Christ. Petty bureaucracy and careers will all fade away with time and death, for they were invented only in order to promote passing, manmade customs, with their attempts at the aggressive domination and annihilation of all else.

We Orthodox Christians are chosen by God to fulfil our appointed destinies. In this age it is our destiny to defy all who deny the Holy Trinity, whether in word or thought or deed. Today this destiny calls us to gather together before the end, for ours is the apostolic mission to preach to all and gather the faithful remnant out of all the nations before the Second Coming.
