THE RISE OF THE MILITARY/ZIONIST ESTABLISHMENT is reaching its apex as puppet-president Obama forms his War Cabinet.
Added to Obama’s list of hawks beginning with the Zionist Jew Rahm Emanuel, Robert Gates, & Hillary Clinton, is ‘retired’ Marine General James L Jones as National Security Advisor. Obama will be naming Jones, former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, for the post on December 1 2008.
Obama’s selection of militarist General Jones signals yet another defection from his campaign promise for ‘change.’ The appeal of Obama’s campaign had been his opposition to the War in Iraq and a promise for a rapid withdraw of US troops. Yet Jones, in his ‘retired’ role as Chairman of the Independent Commission on Security Forces of Iraq, spearheaded the “Iraqi Surge” of increased US troops in Iraq in 2007.
The “Iraqi Surge” (an utter failure in spite of how the Jewish-occupied press spins it) was part of a planned strategy by the military establishment, of which Jones is a leading figure, & the neocon Jewish ‘think tank,’ The American Enterprise Institute.
General James L Jones also has the dubious achievement of engineering the NATO bombing of Serbian civilians in 1999 when he served as NATO’s Supreme Commander while leading the American operation in Kosovo.
“IF WE DON’T SUCCEED IN AFGHANISTAN,” asserted General Jones in a recent study by the Atlantic Council Of The United States, “we’re sending a clear message to terrorist organizations that the US can be defeated.”
Apparently, General Jones has his warmongering heart set on winning a “symbolic” war against the people of Afghanistan, rather than protecting America’s security at home:
“The US has taken its eye off the ball in Afghanistan due to its focus on the war in Iraq. Symbolically, Afghanistan is more the epicenter of terrorism than Iraq. The consequences of failure in Afghanistan are just as serious as they are in Iraq.” View Entire Story Here.
What we have here is a failure to communicate, dear General Jones. The function of the US National Security Advisor is to protect our nation’s security, not to wage symbolic wars.
A symbolic victory in Afghanistan will only send a “clear message” to the maimed & murdered children of Afghanistan that Amerika’s security depends on the genocide of defenseless civilians living thousands of miles away.
Are True Victories Guaranteed …

Brother Nathanael @ November 30, 2008
Dear Friends -
This article is necessary to prove that Obama is not only a pathological liar, (it is beyond his seared conscience when telling his myriad of lies), but a PUPPET of the Military/Zionist establishment.
Obama is a “political rock star” and nothing more. He has sold his soul to the devils in the Pentagon and the Jew financiers and political patsys like Rahmbo racist Jew Emanuel.
General Jones is a MURDERER. Jones has the blood of Kosovo Orthodox Christians on his hands and the blood of Serbian Orthodox Christian civilians on his wicked hands. I would like to meet this murderer some day and tell him to his face looking into his sin-laden eyes, speaking the Truth in love: “Repent! You will die soon in your old age and stand before Christ the righteous Judge.”
You see, Obama chooses nobody - all administration persons are chosen for him by his Militarist/Zionist handlers. Obama can make a decision on what pen to use when siging an Executive Order — but the contents of that order are DICTATED to him by the Miliary/Zionist Jew Establishment.
If it wasn’t for Obama’s lies, I would feel sorry for the man. I actually hold him in derision and believe he is almost beyond repentance — almost, I say. Christ gives all many chances.
Dear friends, please keep me in your prayers. I have been studying the Military/Zionist Establishment and have ordered due to recent donations from a few of you, 3 significant books, some rather expensive as they are rare, on the subject. I ask for your prayers, for as time goes on, I will be reporting more & more on our coming Military/Fascist/Zionist Jew influenced State. My life, I fear, will be in danger, as to some extent, already is.
But the Holy Trinity is surrounding me with a cloud & fiery pillar of protection - Through your Prayers.
Christ Bless you all and I love you all. +BN
PS - Tune in to Michael Collin Piper tomorrow nite as I will most likely be his guest on his radio show. I will let you know for sure tomorrow. I started reading some of his writings this weekend and was VERY impressed with his detailed analysis of the Zionist/Miliatarist/CIA threat.
Have you heard that Obama may have a Polish connection? His grandfather ate a Polish missionary
“Obama is a “political rock star” and nothing more.”
Thats it! That is the only expression we need to explain to the politically idiots what Obama really is, a political rock star.
If you read this and still think the crisis is a natural phenomenon…
But i don’t think anyone ever thought that way. A crisit is generated simply by withdrawing credit and liquidity…
My advice to all who are reading this: for the sake of your families, seriously look into gold.
I wonder if we would even have the crisis now if not for the “pillow of safety” Treasury gave to banks due to the 700$ billion bailout. Talk about twisting facts: without the bailout money, the banks would still be forced to lend to survive, and credit would keep flowing.
Instead the bailout was spun as something “to get credit flowing”.
The mass hypnosis of the media is staggering it its effectiveness.
Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected
Interview Frontpage Magazine 120108
FP: John Ziegler, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
Ziegler: Thanks. It has been a weird and rather rough time.
FP: Why has it been weird and rough?
Ziegler: Well, when I released the Zogby poll of Obama voters I never anticipated the level of outright hatred and irrationality that would be unleashed on me. I spent most of that week deleting nasty e-mail from my inbox just so I could keep receiving e-mail.
FP: I’d like to talk to you about that poll today.
Let’s start with your forthcoming documentary on the media coverage of the election “Media Malpractice…How Obama Got Elected.” You’ve also produced a video of Obama voters on election day being asked simple questions about the election. What’s it all about?
Ziegler: This is a film that I knew several months ago just HAD to get made and that I was the right person and maybe the only person who would and could do it correctly. It will tell the story of how the news media went to unprecedented lengths to help the Obama campaign from the start of the primary season right to the election. As part of that project I interviewed twelve Obama voters on election day and tried to understand how that distorted media coverage impacted what they knew, or thought that they knew about the campaign.
What I found was so incredibly astonishing that I decided to make a web video of the responses and commission a scientific nationwide Zogby poll of Obama voters to see if these results were representative of a broader reality and we found that they absolutely were.
We put the video and polling information at www.HowObamaGotElected.com and it has been a smash hit on the internet with the video getting well over one million views in less than a week…..
FP: In conjunction with the video, you’ve also commissioned a Zogby telephone poll of Obama voters nationwide, which you mentioned in the beginning of our interview. Tell us about the results.
Ziegler: They were amazing and largely ignored by the mainstream media, which of course only further proves the premise of the project. Less than half of Obama voters even knew which party controls Congress! Fewer Obama voters than you would have expected if they simply guessed at the questions knew that it was Obama who made a statement about the coal industry perhaps going bankrupt and energy prices skyrocketing under his polices or that it was Obama who won his first election by getting all of his opponents kicked off the ballot. Just remarkable stuff. So remarkable that the media ignored it because it makes Obama voters look bad, which was not even the intent. We were only trying to show that because Obama voters got their information from different media sources that they were totally ignorant of certain pieces of information.
FP: What reactions have there been to the video and poll? How has the Left digested the realities you exposed?
Ziegler: This has really hit a nerve on both sides. I have received thousands of e-mails from people thanking me for what I am doing and thousands cursing me. The Left has gone absolutely nuts over this. They have hit me with the all too common charges of racism and tried everything they could to discredit the poll by discrediting me. They have basically gone all “Joe the Plumber” on me. To see my response, click here.
FP: What inspired you to take this latest effort on?
Ziegler: I have been an avid critic of the bias in the media for along time but in this election the floodgates really opened and all sorts of new precedents were set. I strongly believe that if we can’t stand up against this type of injustice and force some accountability then we will accept almost anything and it will just continue to happen again and again and will only get worse during the Obama Presidency and reelection campaign.
FP: What realities do you think your forthcoming documentary will expose?
Ziegler: It will show a completely different narrative to the campaign than the one we were fed by most of the media. It will delve into detail on several important episodes that even conservatives probably are unaware of. It is one thing to know or feel something wrong happened and it is an entirely different matter to prove it. I intend to prove it, if only for the historical record.
FP: Why do you think the media is so much infiltrated and dominated by the Left?
Ziegler: There are many reasons for this. I think that those who pursue a career in media are more likely to be “feelers” than “thinkers.” I also think that once this “club” was formed that it became very difficult for conservatives to gain entrance, if only because conservatives are thought of as “partisan” or flat out “stupid.” You can work for a Democrat for many years and be a news anchor or a show host with no problem. If you ever thought about working with or for Republicans you are considered tainted.
I think it should be noted that I believe that ideological bias was only one of the reasons why the media was so in the tank for Obama. I think there were economic and ratings reasons, as well as a tendency towards reverse racism that also led to this.
FP: John Ziegler, thank you for joining us.
Ziegler: Thanks so much. I hope people will check out www.howobamagotelected.com and see our video that has gotten over 1.5 million views on You Tube. I also hope they will get on our mailing list there to get more information on the forthcoming documentary “Media Malpractice… How Obama Got Elected.”
——–Result of Zogby Poll—————-
512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points
97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates
Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions
57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)
71.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)
82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)
56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes
Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter
And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!
Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.
Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we “gave” one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)
[And this, gentle readers, is what we get from our liberal school education and a chaser of TV and pop media…a nation of functional idiots!]
The fact that these men were Jewish is crucial to Russo’s story. His telling of the Supermob tale begins in the Pale of Settlement and quickly advances to the Lawndale section of Chicago, a place so crowded with Jews that it was known as “Kosher Calcutta.”
The chapter on the Chicago Outfit’s involvement in the creation of Las Vegas — it actually predates that of the New York gangsters — is particularly compelling, while the chapter on the Supermob’s seizing of Japanese Americans’ property during World War II illuminates

Dear Brother Nathanael-
Thank You again for your tireless work on behalf of Truth. You will notice that the Marine Corps flag is an all red field with gold motto and embellishment. What have we observed before about the color symbolism of the Rothschild flag and crest? How about the flags of the former Soviet Union, and of communist China?
My personal observation of the Marine Corps is that it produces one the most highly brainwashing environments of any service, and one of the most brutal. Although I presume that there are many honorable former and present Marines, I have noticed a certain enthusiasm for Zionism and Fundamentalism to be prevalent there too.
Marines have always been tasked with enforcing the economic bondage of banana republics on the behalf of Wall Street, at least since the Spanish American War. You will notice that Smedley Butler, the famed critic of the Marines and their former Commandant, was a Quaker. Perhaps this clues us to the fact that his differences may have been spiritual as well, in that the Quakers do not subscribe to the ‘Replacement Theology,’ and ‘British Israelism,’ of the main Protestant denominations.
“Browse our 167 year archive. The Jewish Chronicle archives gives you the chance to search through the original published pages of The Jewish Chronicle from 1841.” See top right.

I hope you talk about Putin, Medvedev Russia, Soros and Brezinski and his Grand Chessboard strategy.

I did not know this I thought Wesley Clark ran the whole operation. Good info.
This does not look good as NATO was cooperating with the KLA during the Kosovo war plus they are still pushing for Ukrainian and Georgian membership into NATO it can’t just be a coincidence Brezinski, Gates and now this guy.

It should be apparent to all the readers of these articles by Brother Nathanael - to include all of the A.D.L. monitors, censors and troublemakers that EVIL has overtaken the minds, hearts, souls and spirits of those in the A.D.L., in Central Banking and High Finance, throughout the membership of the Political Parties here in the USA, in the halls of Federal and State Governments, their Agencies, their Departments, their Courts, etc., in the US Media outlets of TV, radio, movies, print, etc.
If there still be some shred of concern over one’s own eternal destiny AFTER one’s own personal death as a result of natural causes or either Divine or man-made calamaties, my own personal Priestly advise to one and all is now but to simply go to Church and obtain for yourselves God’s Forgiveness of your sins via the Lord’s Sacrament of Confession/Reconciliation.
These ‘People’ in the Lofty, High and Mighty Offices and Positions of Influence in our USA and the nation/states of our contemporary world are undoubtedly ‘OUT OF CONTROL’, having dispensed with their duties and obligations to God’s Natural and Divine Laws.
Our ‘World’ is now being run into the Pit via their individual and collective Lawlessness.

PLEASE READ EVERYBODY A TYPICAL JEWISH RESPONSE TO REAL JEW NEWS ARTICLES:
(I was going to delete it but now I wish to share it with everyone)
Are there any Jews other than Kapner writing for this crazy site?
What a bunch of losers you guys are. Everything is the fault of the Jews right?
Kapner, you’re a self loathing Jew if I ever saw one.
Jews are probably the single most successful, law abiding minority on the planet.
Behind every great work of science, law, medicine and more–you will find a diligent person of Jewsih faith.
Maybe some of you dummies will take a cue from the Jews and try a little education once in a while.
All of your misguided theories and essays seem as though they were written by a lunatic with a grudge.
Do you see everyone how this Jew typically resorts to Ad Hominems? No supporting evidence just name calling!
As for me being a “self-loathing Jew” the opposite is what Seth and his ilk are, “SELF LOVING JEWS.”
We are to LOVE God, Love Christ His Son, the Holy Trinity, then our Neigbors, NOT ourselves in the priority list.
PLEASE READ MR SETH DARVICK: “Jews Must Face ‘Dark Side’ Of Judaism” By Dr Henry Makow

Thank you for posting Seth Darvick’s contribution to Real Jew News.
Of course, you can’t publish all your hate mail, but the hate mail from the Jews themselves is as enlightening as the thoughts (tirades often) of your Jewish readers who do not write in as Jews (opposing RJN), but write in posing as Christian ‘anti-semitic’ bigots, Muslim Jihadists declaring war on the Jews, the ‘Great Satan’ and all the rest of it.
They are fascinating subject matter. And to be hearing from them directly, speaking in their own voices - this is instructive. It also gives you and us the opportunity of grace to interact personally with them.
This takes us into the subject matter of Judaism Discovered: A Desideraturm (published 2008) by Michael Hoffman. An instant classic.
To excerpt a little from Hoffman’s statements on his own work - he analyzes the “rabbinic spirit which functions as a kind of ideological organism; an organism which exhibits as one of its most striking features, the ability to reinvent itself in response to the light of exposure.”
This is what RJN does - the light of exposure. So how do Jewish readers who want to talk to us “reinvent” . I am interested.
We are interested in them. And we are concerned about their immortal souls. I would go so far as to say we love them. Even that old satan - Abe, virtually an American institution.
I say, Bro Nathanael, publish their comments and in that magisterial spirit of Hoffman’s study: analyze, comment and let’s figure them out.
Hi Lynda - Nice to hear from you. I’ll try to remember to post the Jews’ comments as they come in and those who pose as other than what they really are, Anti Christ Jews.
ON ANOTHER NOTE TO ALL:
I am now at the point of utter exhaustion. I have TOO MUCH on my plate with Real Jew News, Street Evangelism, and trying to care for my own soul through reading the Holy Scriptures, Patristics, and prayer.
Part of Real Jew News is staying on top of hourly news, studying history, & researching for articles. This is TOTALLY exhuasting and my spiritual state MUST come first.
At the same time, the Zionist Jew threat is getting worse. A Militarist State is upon us and I am more convnced then ever that the Jew IsraHell MOSSAD has completly INFILTRATED the Military Estbablishment as well as every possible sphere of influential life in America.
I have more Mossad info on their INFILTRATION into Mumbai/India but I am so overwhelmed by it all, that my energy level for texting, formating, and picture assembly is now at -12 degrees.
I am so overwhelmed that I may be taking one or two days off from RJN articles so please be patient. MUCH MORE will soon be coming - And DO - keep my in your prayers. +BN

Greetings in the Lord Jesus from No Cal in Talmudistan
Being a relatively inexperienced senator, Obama came to the president-select a little light on cronies. Happily, the Cronies are taking care of the problem.
There was a lot of talk from Obama about how his national-security team understands the integrated challenges of 21st century global affairs, and how that includes ending the U.S. dependence on foreign oil and combating climate change and addressing the growing resource scarcity in fuel, water and food.
So where’s the Energy Secretary-designate? That’s a pretty serious omission given Obama’s stated goals.
Meanwhile, Obama’s new national security adviser, retired Gen. James Jones, is apparently no stranger to energy wonkery—though no one would mistake him for an environmentalist. Far from it: Since leaving the military, he’s been running the Institute for 21st Century Energy, a group affiliated with the Chamber of Commerce that’s been educating the public on the need for, well, industry-friendly energy policies. (If greens need more reason to squirm, Jones also sits on the board of Chevron.)
His institute recently published a series of energy recommendations for the next administration that specifically downplayed the need to move quickly on climate legislation, and instead emphasized boosting domestic supplies of oil and gas, energy efficiency, and promoting technologies like carbon capture for coal plants. Load up on the think tank stuff. More coming…
At the heart of The [Rockefeller Oil Empire] Chevron Way is our vision… to be the global energy company most admired for its people, partnership and performance. [And steal back our oilfields in Iran, etc. that we stole to begin with]
Our vision means we:
*provide energy products vital to sustainable economic progress and human development throughout the world;
*are people and an organization with superior capabilities and commitment;
*are the partner of choice;
*deliver world-class performance;
*earn the admiration of all our stakeholders – investors, customers, host governments, local communities and our employees – not only for the goals we achieve but how we achieve them.

Institute for 21st Century Energy [Think Tank]
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy has unveiled its Transition Plan for Securing America’s Energy Future, an energy policy roadmap with 88 concrete recommendations and detailed timelines for President-elect Barack Obama and the 111th Congress.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
General James L. Jones (retired, United States Marine Corps)
Energy is the foundation of our nation’s security, prosperity and everyday life. As worldwide demand for energy has grown, competition for energy resources has intensified, and our environmental responsibilities have increased, America’s energy future has become less certain. These circumstances represent challenges to America’s future energy, economic, and national security [More war in Central Asia]. But these circumstances also present us with a historic opportunity to develop new American jobs [military conscriptions, no doubt], new American energy, and new American technology as we strive to ensure that America has reliable, clean and affordable energy supplies. To realize these opportunities, America must marshal our unrivaled talent, capabilities, and resources – in both the public and private sectors — to develop and deploy a comprehensive set of solutions. [More war in Central Asia]
We must make the energy we have go further by aggressively promoting energy efficiency. We must produce more energy from all of the diverse sources available to us. We must modernize and protect our energy infrastructure to improve the reliability and security of our energy supplies. And we must do all this while minimizing the impact of energy production and consumption on our air, land, and water.
Achieving these goals will require that Congress and the President work together to enact a common sense set of energy policies [A declaration of war on real countries, this time instead of the mythical Land of Terrah]. Success will require substantial, long-term investments on the part of the public and private sector to develop transformational technologies [including the transformed military] and a highly skilled energy [slave] workforce, and it will require government at all levels to provide a fair and effective regulatory environment that will encourage new investment.
Over the past year, there has been much debate and discussion about energy – both here in Washington and out on the campaign trail. The Institute for 21st Century Energy, in affiliation with the United States Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping Congress, the President, and the American people overcome our energy challenges and realize our energy opportunities. Our nation must adopt a balanced strategy that puts the United States on a long-term path to a secure, prosperous, and clean energy future.
This is a monumental calling, but it is also a historic opportunity for America to demonstrate global leadership, create new American industries and jobs, and develop new exports.
We invite you to join our effort and lend your voice to this cause.

Reject Christ, reject the Spirit of Christ, reject the Word through Whom all things were made, reject His Eternal and Divine Father of us all…and what is an individual or individuals of ANY group of people left with?
Answer: A morbid preoccupation with DEATH and DESTRUCTION. One must go out of his, her or their way to find ‘enemies’, to figure out ways to afflict others in every way and manner possible - and while he, she or they are going about this ‘Grand Scheme’ of theirs, they have to find a rationale to EXULT themselves over other human beings created in His Image and Likeness as well!
The personal and/or national rejection of the All-Good, Life-Giving GOD and Creator of all that is seen and Unseen has but one and only one mental, emotional, spiritual result…
…such individuals become psychopaths afflicted with any number and degree of the human spiritual VICES of Pride/Hubris, Envy, Jealousy, Lust, Avarice, Sloth and Wrath.

Here is another comment from an Anti Christ Jew that I was going to delete:
Jews are like everybody else no matter how many fables Jew haters try to paint. It was once a racial thing for Jew haters to espouse.
Jew haters now turn to prophecy: “One day the truth will out and the Jew will face due judgment,” as a replacement for actual thinking.
Glad you didnt disappoint. Whats it like to be pre-programmed???
Posted for all of you to read yet another Ad Hominem “defense” of the Jewish position.
Greetings dear Brother Nathanael.
As Orthodox Christians, we’re somewhat perturbed about recent posts to RJN that keep referring to the utterances of the Fatima apparitions, regarding the fate of the world in relation to Russia, because if one thing is certain, the unique and ineffable humility of Our Blessed Lady and Ever Virgin Mary would make her the last person on earth who’ll ever refer to herself as having an immaculate heart - and don’t get us wrong, this humility is precisely what makes her immaculate! (Note -immaculate by grace, not by nature).
The only apparition that would insist on introducing itself as immaculate is Satan himself. In addition, Our Lady’s bodily assumption into heaven as being the first fruits of the resurrection, precludes her from appearing in any form other than her natural bodily dimensions, and even then, adorned with absolute humility, so as to detract as much as possible from self-attention.
Whichever way you look at it, the apparitions at Fatima were nothing short of totally disorientating mega-spectacles, more conducive to mass hysteria than the blessed introspection and contrition that promotes true repentance and conversion - unless of course one is seeking a supernatural justification for nuking Russia into embracing Papism.
Furthermore, the One True Orthodox Church of Christ never taught the strange doctrine of devotion to holy individual’s isolated body parts (fetishism), but always renders reverence and worship to the whole person, body and soul inextricably - hence the historical, geographical and anthropological abscence and therefore non-catholic character of the modern Roman dogmas concerning the sacred heart of Jesus & Mary in pre-schism Christianity.
Consequently, our guess is that the real reason the Vatican’s hierarchy is reluctant to go along with the Fatima injunctions regarding consecrating Russia to this apparition’s ‘immaculate heart’ as a pre-requisite for both Russia’s and the world’s salvation, is because it would rather place its faith in St. Paul’s counsel to the Galatians ”even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed” Galatians 1:8-9.
The diabolical cheek of even thinking to consecrate an already long-suffering Christian people over which Rome’s ecclesiastical jurisdiction has never extended, to the immaculate heart of some apparition in Portugal masquerading as the Mother of God is something that even the Vatican with all its worldy pride, power and ambition can never bring itself round to doing - particularly in the light of 70 million plus Russian martyrs who have already saved themselves and sanctified their nation through the spilling of their blood at the hands of Jewish Bolsheviks funded by the same Luciferian Zionist Cabal that also happens to be handling the Vatican’s finances today, or so we are told, not by fellow Orthodox, but by reliable Papist sources.
How long is it going to be before the same people promoting the Fatima delusion will start posting blogs about the ‘Marian’ apparitions in Medjugorije as well - which for your readers’ consideration, is an area notorious for it’s genocide of Orthodox Christian Serbs by hard-core Croatian Ustashe Papist shock troopers in World War Two, and all this with the implicit blessings of Black Nobility Jewish Pope Pius XII.
Furthermore, the ‘messages’ of this particular Virgin Mary at Medjugorije prior to the break-up of the Former Yugoslavia, also bear the same theocratic imperatives of Fatima, namely the promotion of Papal spiritual totalitarianism by referring to the Orthodox Serbs as ‘‘poor, lost and misguided children who will one day return to the Mother Church of St. Peter in Rome’’ .
We feel that inclusion of such clearly misguided material on RJN undermines Brother Nathanael’s good work when trying to create a cyber-family of like minded truth seekers.
So let’s call a spade a spade fellas – we can’t be serious about our opposition to the Zionist agenda for world domination, unless we’re also equally vocal about the Papacy’s very specific role in it – namely unipolar ecclesiological centralization and control, after the model of the False Prophet of the Anti Christ in St. John the Evangelist’s Book of Revelations.
God bless all of you from all of us.

OUR site, Real Jew News, includes those from various walks of life. Some are Orthodox Christians, some are Roman Catholics, some are Orthodox Christian priests, some are Roman Catholic priests, some are Evangelical Christians, some are Presbyterians, some are Episcopalians, some are secularists, some are agnostics, and some are atheists.
Thus a microcosm of the world is represented here on our site, Real Jew News. AND all of us are here because whatever place we are in during our journey through this life, WE HERE OF THE REAL JEW NEWS “FAMILY” SHARE A *COMMON CAUSE* a *COMMON BATTLE* a *COMMON MISSION.*
And that is our concern of the Zionist Jewish threat to our once Christian society and world.
Real Jew News is an OPEN FORUM. Fr Joseph and others wish to share with us their strong beliefs and love for the Virgin Mariam. And thus, they are welcome to share with the rest of their Real Jew News family.
Let’s accept one another with love. And let’s dialogue with one another, even though we may disagree in certain areas, with LOVE. We MUST all stick together in this battle! United we stand, divided we fall before the Zionist ANTI CHRIST JEWS.
We MUST NOT allow that to happen. +Brother Nathanael

@ Greek/Serb Orthodox Brothers-
I have to agree with your reasoning and instincts as regards Fatima. Fatimid prophesy is popular in occult bookstores and forums, and indeed it does teach a peculiar and heterodox line regarding ‘consecrating the Russia to the sacred heart …’
While I have little doubt of the sincerity of the witnesses to these apparitions, I share your skepticism too. Perhaps we should have an open mind, though, as the fundamental message is repentance and a return to our loving and just God.
***Update: Pentagon just upped Northcom’s DOMESTIC military forces to 20,000.
Didn’t they say they saw visions of the Virgin Mary in a hilltop with numerious witnesses in either Croatia or Bosnia during the Balkans wars in the early 90’s?
Another conflict involving Orthodox Christianity.

Dear greek/serb orthodox brothers,
My Metropolitan Archbishop Athanasius of the Eparchy of New Mexico has within his Bishop’s Coat-of-Arms the words “Repair the Breach!” as his service dedication to our Lord and His Church, that ‘Breach’ being the sad divisions between the Orthodox and Catholic.
As a Priest, I’m under his Omophorian. FYI,
My Metropolitan Archbishop and his Abbess, Rev. Mother Anastasia at their St. Seraphim’s Skete are BOTH under much suffering and duress as I write these notes to the two of you.
May these notes of mine to you while under his Omophorian please the Mother of God and her Son so as to obtain for my Metropolitan Archbishop and the Abbess, Rev. Mother Anastasia the necessary Graces and temporal help and support to alleviate their burdens. Amen.

Dear greek/serb orthodox brothers,
‘To Give Good Counsel’ is but one of the seven Spiritual Acts of Mercy. I pray that the Mother of God grant the two of you the Divine Graces of her Divine Spouse, God the Holy Spirit, of Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom.
As greek/serb orthodox brothers, the two of you are undoubtedly familiar with ‘AKATHIST’. For your edification regarding a particular Akathist song within the GREEK Orthodox Church:
“The origin of the feast is assinged by the Lesson to the year 626, when CONSTANTINOPLE, in the reign of Heraclus, WAS ATTACKED BY THE PERSIANS AND SCYTHIANS but saved through THE INTERVENTION OF THE MOST HOLY THEOTOKOS (Mother of God)” from
Is my dear GREEK ORTHODOX brother familiar with this part of the chant?
“We your servants now beseech you and we bend the knee of our heart to you - O Pure (i.e. IMMACULATE) one, lend us your ear, AND SAVE US, for we are drowning in adversities. And your City redeem, O Theotokos, from the hands of THE INFIDEL INVADERS.” - quoting Ode Seven, the Eirmos
- Fr. Joseph
Dear greek/serb orthodox brothers,
Having ensured the two of you ARE familiar with what the Mother of God has already done for her spiritual children, those of you in the Greek and Serbian church, allow me to tell you about a direct disciple of St. John Chrysostom.
As greek/serb orthodox brothers, the two of you ARE familiar with the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
That direct disciple of St. John Chrysostom is known in the Eastern Church as ST. NILUS.
St. Nilus penned a 4th century prophecy about OUR world in OUR contemporary times of the 20th Century.
That Prophecy of St. Nilus, circa 400 A.D. begins as follows:
“After the year 1900, towards the middle of the 20th century…”
Please READ and PONDER what St. Nilus is relaying to and for the members of THE CHURCH of the 20th century here:
- Fr. Joseph
Dear greek/serb orthodox brothers,
Now then, prior to the fulfillment of all that is contained in the 4th century Prophecy of St. Nilus, in the year 1884 A.D. THE BISHOP OF ROME who was at that time Pope Leo XIII was granted a Divine Grace, a Supernatural Mystical Experience…
“From in front of the Tabernacle, he (Pope Leo XIII) had heard A CONFRONTATION between Jesus and Satan. Satan was bragging to Jesus that if he had enough time and enough power, he could DESTROY THE CHURCH.
“Jesus asked him ‘How much time and how much power?’ Satan replied he would need a century and more influence over those that would give themselves to him. Jesus said ‘So be it.’ THE 20TH CENTURY IS THE CENTURY THAT WAS GIVEN TO HIM TO TEST THE WORLD.” - quoting from the section entitled ‘A Short History of the Prayer of St. Michael the Archangel’ at
33 years LATER, the Most Holy Theotokos, the SAME Most Holy Theotokos appears to three children at Fatima, Portugal in 1917 A.D., and in her Messages asked for the Bishops of the Church to perform a public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA to her very own ‘O Pure (Immaculate) Heart’ as did the people of Constantipole PUBLICLY cried out to her to SAVE THEM from the INVADING INFIDELS who were the Persians and Scytians at that time!
The GREEK Church’s, the SERBIAN Church’s AKATHISTS are the VERY SAME THING as a pubilc and solemn CONSECRATION to her ‘O Pure (Immaculate) One’s HEART which was to be done by the Bishops of the WESTERN/LATIN CHURCH for the sake of, for the love of, for Charity towards and Mercy FOR the Christians of the EASTERN CHURCH!
Her Son, Who as the Gospel accounts record, commanded the WINDS and the SEAS, and those created things of His OBEYED Him!
Here is a photograph of some of the 70,000 people who saw her Son perform a ‘Miracle of the Sun’ FOR them in order to validate His Mother’s Appearances and Messages at FATIMA in the Western/Latin Church’s PORTUGAL:
…’O Pure (Immaculate) One, lend us an ear, AND SAVE US, for we are drowning in adversities. And your City redeem, O Theotokos, from the HANDS OF THE ZIONIST INVADERS.’
Do the two of you NOW ‘get the picture’???

Dear greek/serb orthodox brothers,
Cardinal Wyszynski of Warsaw, Poland used to say ‘Certain historical developments are willed by the Lord of History, and they shall take place. About many other - mostly minor - developments, that same Lord is willing. He allows men the FREE WILL TO CHOOSE between various options, and He will go along with those choices; for, in the end, ALL HUMAN CHOICES will be co-opted as grist into God’s Mill, which grinds slowly but which grinds exceedingly fine.”
So by training our spiritual eyesight onto the Divine Revelation given to the BISHOP OF ROME, Pope Leo XIII, back in 1884 A.D. wherein SATAN challenged JESUS that he could and would destroy His MILITANT Church here on earth, the following postings of mine will contain the relevant information needed TO SUBSTANTIATE the Mother of God and Mother of THE CHURCH’S Message and Instruction to the Church’s Bishops to preform a public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA to her Immaculate Heart.

Warnings From The Beyond, Confessions Of Hell, To The Contemporary Church (of 2008 Anno Domini)
- Fr. Joseph
Dear greek/serb orthodox brothers and all others who might wind up reading this website’s thread…
On Line Video presentation of
‘Warnings From The Beyond, Confession Of Hell, To The Contemporary Church (of 2008 Anno Domini)
I trust you all begin to see that the EVILS that have befallen our entire human race, principally since 1884 A.D. and POPE LEO XIII’S mystical experience/revelation, have as their origin the evil/scheming machinations of Satan, his unseen elemental minion spirits and those human stooges, dupes and allies who have aligned themselves with Lucifer, Satanism, the Occult to include practice of the Kabbalah, neo-Platonic Gnosticism, etc.
Again, ‘FYI’, the major occult groups such as the Masons, Rosicrusians, all the Hermetic Orders as well as the groups practicing the Kabbalah all met at the King George V hotel in Paris, France back in 1931 A.D. and entered into and signed a mutual alliance.
Primary goal of the International Occult Alliance is THE DESTRUCTION OF THE CHIRSTIAN CHURCH so as to replace it with their ‘Universal Gnostic Church’.
Now then, shall we get on with the business of ASSISTING the Holy Mother of God as her spiritual children and everyone DO what they can to get the (remaining faithful) Bishops of her Son’s CHURCH to preform the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA to her Immaculate Heart?
If THAT is done, the entire universe will hear THE CRUSHING OF SATAN’S HEAD under her Divine Maternal HEEL per the Divine Prophecy which came forth to the human race via the Mind and Mouth of GOD HIMSELF as found at Genesis 3:15.
Thank you for your SILENCING your assaults against a Bishop of His Church here on earth, that is to say, the BISHOP OF ROME so as to turn your thoughts towards thinking up ways TO HELP the Most Holy Theotokos in getting her Divine Maternal Instructions to the Bishops of her Son’s CHURCH to perform a public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA to her Immaculate (Full Of Grace) Heart.

@ Father Joseph-
I am moved by your knowledge and witness, but remain skeptical of the appiritional claims of various believers. I believe what you are saying is beyond a defense for Fatima, and more deeply deals with the fundamental nature of spiritual warfare. Thank you for you dedication to such profound work.
Dear Michael K.
Thank you for your kind words. Yes, this is what ALL of our lives in this contemporary world simply boils down to - it’s ‘Spiritual Warfare’. We either fight, put up resistance, remain defiant in the face of such overwhelming odds against the survival and success of the Human Race in accordance with our Father in Heaven’s Loving and Benevolent Divine Designs and Wishes.
In the final ‘geo-political’ analysis, it all boils down to this for the Human Race:
Either we actively live spiritual allegiance to Christ the King and His Divine Desires/Designs for our Human Race (again, in accordance with His Eternal Father’s Divine Will to have a HUGE AMOUNT of holy people which which He might enjoy their spiritual company for all of Eternity) or we, as a Human Race, invite death and destruction upon ourselves and each other.
Truly, U.S. 5 Star General Douglas MacArthur wasn’t joking in telling Catholic Bishop Fulton J. Sheen “The World Struggle is not political or economic. Rather, it is religious and theological. It is either God or atheism.” That was his personal conclusion after having witnessed and participated all the horrors of World War II.
And it was WWII U.S. General Omar Bradley who said this to the West Point graduating class of 1947:
“We have penetrated into and grasped the mysteries of the atom, but have utterly failed with the Sermon on the Mount.”
This Spiritual Warfare consists in our individual and collective utilization of our spiritual faculty of FREE WILL.
We ALL live in a ‘Cause and Effect’ Universe NOT of our making. There are CONSEQUENCES for our human actions. And there are BLESSING for our human actions.
What our World and our Church truly and desperately NEED at this junction of this Spiritual War is some honest-to-goodness LEADERSHIP from those who are recognized as proper and legitimate authorities and leaders of His Church and His nations of our world.
We are dire need of an ‘Air-Drop’, so to speak, of Divine Supplies to hold off the attacks of so many temporal and spiritual enemies aligned against the Human Race. We of the Human Race are in dire need of God’s Divine Grace coming down upon us all with the Gifts and Virtues of God the Holy Spirit if we are ever to have the hope of becoming the holy people that God the Father desires for all of us - so that ALL OF US might obtain onto the Fullness of Life and His Divine Nature.
That Spiritual ‘Air Drop’ of God the Holy Spirit has been relegated to the Mother of God - and the Mother of God DESIRES to pour forth the Divine Graces of her Divine Spouse upon the ENTIRE WORLD for she is our Human Race’s NEW EVE.
What is required, as an act of FREE WILL on the part of the peoples and leaders of our World and His Church is but to make a PUBLIC AND SOLEMN APPEAL to the Most Holy Theotokos per her Fatima, Portugal Apparitions to have the BISHOPS of her Son’s Church preform the COLLEGIAL CONSECRATION of Russia to her Immaculate Heart!
Sometimes I must ask myself and WONDER…
…’Why do not people the world over UNDERSTAND the very straightforth and simple Divine Prophecy of GOD HIMSELF in and at Genesis 3:15?’
Why? Why? Why?

Excerpts from an essay by St. Ignati Brianchaninov
…Can a sign from heaven have special authority? Those who demanded such a sign, of course, demanded it because they attributed such authority to it. Can we conclude that a sign from heaven is always a sign from God? The Holy Scripture tells us otherwise. The very expression, a sign from heaven, is imprecise: for people living back then and now. Those not acquainted with the sciences understand heaven to be that which happens in the realm of the air and sky. The sun, moon, and stars are declared to be in heaven in that they float in space, and rain, thunder and lightning are called manifestations from heaven although, since they occur in the air, it is more proper to associate them with the earth.
The Holy Scripture tells us that by the action of the devil, fire from heaven fell and burnt up the sheep and the servants of Job (Job 1:16). Clearly this fire formed in the air just like lightning. Simon the Magician astounded spiritually blind people with miracles, and the power of satan was mistaken as the great power of God (Acts 8:10). Simon particularly astounded the idol worshipping Romans when, at a large gathering, he declared himself a god and his intention to rise in the air, then suddenly started to rise. This is written about by Simeon Metaphrastes, who took the above description from the earliest Christian writers.
It is a terrible misfortune the lack of true knowledge of God in man when one takes the works of the devil for the works of God. Before the Second Coming of Christ, when Christianity, spiritual knowledge, and discernment will become scarce to an extreme, then there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Matt. 24:24). The antichrist himself will generously lavish miracles upon men, astounding and satisfying the ignorant and carnal minded.
He will give them the signs from heaven for which they seek and thirst. Whose coming, says the Apostle Paul, is after the working of satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they may be saved (II Thess. 2:19 10). The ignorant and carnal minded, seeing these miracles, will not stop to reason, and because of the affinity of their spirit for the spirit of the miracles, in their blindness will immediately accept the activity of satan as the greatest manifestation of the power of God. The antichrist will be accepted very hastily, without thought. People will not realise that his miracles do not have any blessed, reasonable goal, no definite meaning, that they are alien to truth, play acting deprived of meaning, filled with lies, that they are monstrous, malicious, and meaningless, straining to astonish, deceive and entice by the enchantment of a lavish, empty, silly effect.
It is not strange that the miracles of the antichrist will be accepted without question and with delight by apostates from Christianity - enemies of the truth, and of God. They prepared themselves for an open, active acceptance of the messenger and the instrument of satan, of his teachings and all his actions, having entered into spiritual contact with him at the right moment. It is worthy of thoughtful attention and sorrow to note that the miracles and acts of the antichrist will create difficulty even for the chosen of God. The reason for the strong influence of the antichrist on men will be centred in his hellish corruption and hypocrisy, an artful covering up of the most horrendous evil, in its unrestrained and shameless insolence, in the prolific cooperation of the fallen spirits, and finally in the ability to create miracles that will be false, but astonishing.
The human mind is unable to imagine such an evil man, which the antichrist will be. It is not possible for a human heart, even a sinful one, to believe that evil could reach such a level, as it will with the antichrist. He will boast loudly about himself, as his forerunners and his prototypes did, he will call himself a preacher and restorer of the true knowledge of God. The non-discerning Christians will see in him a representative and a supporter of true religion and will thus join him. He will proclaim and call himself the promised Messiah, and the children of carnal wisdom will rush to meet him, proclaim his glory, power, and genius, - will proclaim him a god, become his supporters.
The antichrist will show himself to be meek, merciful, filled with love, filled with all virtue. Those who will acclaim him as such, and will submit to him as the highest good, are they who accept the truth of fallen mankind and will not deny it for the truth of the Gospel.
The antichrist will offer to mankind the most exalted earthly organisation of well being and prosperity. He will offer honour, riches, luxury, enjoyment, physical comfort, and delight. Seekers of earthly things will accept the antichrist and will call him their master. The antichrist will reveal before mankind by means of cunning artifice, as in a theatre, a show of astonishing miracles, unexplainable by contemporary science. He will instil fear by the storm and wonderment of his miracles, and will satisfy the [worldly wise], he will satisfy the superstitious, and he will confound human learning. All men, led by the light of fallen nature, alienated from the guidance of Gods Light, will be enticed into submission to the seducer (Rev. 13:8).
The signs of the antichrist will be primarily in the air for it is in this realm that satan mainly rules (Eph. 2:2; 6:12). The signs will act upon the sense of sight, charming and deceiving it. Saint John the Theologian, contemplating events in the world before the end, says in the book of Revelation that the antichrist will perform great deeds so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men (Rev. 13:13). The Holy Scriptures point to this phenomenon as the highest of the signs of the antichrist, and the place for this sign is in the aerial realm it will be a magnificent and awesome spectacle. The signs of the antichrist will complement the actions of his cunning conduct; they will seduce the majority of men to follow him. The opponents of the antichrist will be considered as rebels, enemies of the common good and order, and will be subject to covert and open persecution, to torture and execution.
The false spirits, sent throughout the world, will incite in men a generally high opinion of the antichrist, universal ecstasy, and irresistible attraction to him. The Holy Scriptures have depicted in numerous ways the forcefulness of the last persecution of Christians and the cruelty of this persecution. A decisive and definite characteristic serves as the name given by the Scriptures to this frightening person he is called the beast (Rev. 13:1), just as the fallen archangel is called a dragon (Gen. 3:1; Rev. 12:3). These names correctly depict both enemies of God. One acts secretly, the other more openly, but the beast, who is similar to all beasts, unites in himself a wide variety of cruelty, and the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion (Rev. 13:2), the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority (Rev. 13:2). [Cont’d…]
Excerpts from an essay by St. Ignati Brianchaninov:
A frightening trial will descend upon the holy saints of God: cunning, hypocrisy, and the awesomeness of the persecutor will increase in order to deceive and seduce them. Refined, inventive, concealed by cunning, the persecutions, constraints, and unlimited power of the tormentor will place them in a most difficult situation. Their small number will seem insignificant before mankind, and their opinion will be viewed as weak and feeble; they will endure general disdain, hatred, slander, and oppression. Violent death will be their lot. Only with the special help of Divine Grace and under its guidance, will the elect of God be able to stand against the enemy of God, to confess the Lord Jesus before him and before men.
The reason for discussing the above is the fact that the Pharisees and the Sadducees, demanding a sign from heaven from the Lord, demanded a miracle similar in character to the [future] antichrists miracles. The fact that they demanded this particular miracle explains our Lords reaction to their demand. On hearing such a demand, the God man expressed a deep concern, decisively refused the demand, and did not wish to remain any longer with those who allowed themselves to make such a demand, He departed from them.
At another time, He gave the following most stern response, saying A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas (Matt. 16:4). By the words “this generation” are named all who demanded a sign similar in spirit to those described above. They are called an adulterous generation, because they have entered in spirit into union with satan, breaking their union with God. They are called an adulterous generation because, while recognising the miracles of the God man, they pretended not to see them; demeaning and blaspheming the miracles of God, they asked for a miracle conforming with their sad state of mind and spirit. The request for a sign from heaven was not so much a request for a miracle, but a mockery of the miracles of the God man, and an expression of an ignorant, perverted understanding of miracles.
The acceptance of salvation is left to mans free will; so also it was left to men to assess the miracles of Christ, to discuss their authenticity and quality, and to draw conclusions from the miracles concerning the One Who did them. The recognition and acceptance of the Redeemer was the result of a free, positive conclusion, not a hurried, light minded action, as if it were a forced attraction. The miracles of Christ had a definite purpose. It can be said concerning all the miracles that which the Lord said to the Apostle Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold My hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into My side: and be not faithless, but believing (John 20:27).
The miracles of Christ were tangible, they were clear to the simplest of people, there was nothing mysterious about them, there was no room for doubt or perplexity as to whether it was a miracle or only an effect. The dead were resurrected, the incurably sick were cured, the lepers were cleansed, the blind from birth could see, the dumb could speak, food was multiplied immediately for the needy, the waves of the sea and the wind calmed at a command, those who were threatened by death from the storm were saved, the nets of the fishermen, who laboured in vain for a long time at their task, suddenly filled with fish, obedient to the silent voice of the Lord.
The miracles of the God man had many witnesses, among whom were many either hostile to Him or inattentive, or sought from Him only physical help. The miracles were undeniable. The most spiteful enemies of the Lord did not deny them and tried only to demean them by a blasphemous misinterpretation and all means suggested to them by cunning and malice. The miracles of the Lord contained no vanity, no pretence. Not one miracle was done as a display before man; all miracles were covered by the cloak of divine humility. They comprised a chain of blessed benefits for suffering humanity, and at the same time, they expressed totally the power of the Creator over earthly creation and created spirits. They expressed and gave proof to the worthiness of God, Who had taken humanity upon Himself, appearing as a man amid mankind.
The miracles of the Lord had a holy meaning, a holy goal. Although they in themselves were a great benefit in the dispensation of Gods plan, they served as witness and proof of an immensely higher benevolence. In becoming man, the Lord brought to humanity an eternal, spiritual, priceless gift–salvation, healing from sin, resurrection from eternal death.
The word of the Lord and His life were the realisation of this all-encompassing gift, in His life the Lord was without sin, all holy (John 8:46); His word was filled with power (Mark 1:42). Men had fallen deeply into the darkness and gloom of carnal mindedness [versus spiritual mindedness]; their hearts and minds were blinded. It was necessary for special condescension towards the ailing condition of men, it became necessary to give the most clear witness to their physical senses, it became necessary by means of physical senses to impart a life giving knowledge to minds and hearts, which through their natural death died an eternal death. Miracles are given to support the Word of God. For man to understand and accept the spiritual gift, seen only by spiritual eyes, the Lord added to the spiritual, eternal gift one similar to it, a gift which was temporal, bodily the healing of mans bodily illnesses. [Cont…]
Excerpts from an essay by St. Ignati Brianchaninov
A demand for a sign from heaven is shown to be devoid of sense. Although it was rare that the power of the Lord extended beyond man onto the matter of created nature, these occurrences did take place. They witness to the fact that the power of the Lord over all of nature is the unlimited power of God. The miracles over nature serve to complement those miracles which were performed for mankind, so that the significance that mankind was wont to give to the One Who redeemed our sins was accurately defined. Since the reason for our Lords coming to earth was the salvation of man, the care of the Lord was concentrated on man, the most perfect creation His image, His rational temple.
The earth, the land of exile, suffering, and our journeying, all material creation, despite its immensity, is left by Him without attention. Even if certain miracles are performed on matter, they are done for the satisfaction of mans needs.
… From these holy reflections the conclusion can be drawn that those who wish to perform signs, wish to do so due to the excitement of the flesh, attracted by the passions which they misunderstand, although it may seem to them that they are led by zeal for Gods work. Those who seek signs are in a similar condition of excitement and self delusion. It is forbidden in all circumstances to tempt God and to cease revering Him.
It is permitted to ask for Gods help in extreme need, when we have no means of our own to be delivered from it, but determining the means of assistance we must leave to God, committing ourselves to His will and mercy. The Lord always sends means for assistance which will be helpful to the soul. The means offer the help we are in need of, and in that very assistance He grants us a holy taste of humility.
Divine help does not occur with outward brilliance, as our carnal mind might wish, so that the soul will not be harmed from the vainglory of being satisfied with this brilliance. In the works of God, in the very service to the Church, one should always ask for the blessing of God and the help of God. One must believe that only divine, spiritual means can be beneficial for faith and devotion, but never the means suggested by the carnal mind.
It is difficult for man to endure glory without harm to his soul (Saint Isaac of Syria, Homily 1). It is difficult not only for the passionate or those struggling with passions, but also for those who have conquered the passions and for saints. Although victory over sin has been granted to them, changeability has not been taken from them, that is, the possibility of returning to sin and falling under the yoke of the passions. This has happened to some who were not attentive enough to themselves, who allowed self assurance to slip in concerning their spiritual condition.
As the blessed Macarius the Great (Conversation VII, ch. 4) noted, an inclination to pride dwells in even the most cleansed souls. This very inclination acts as the beginning of going astray and attraction [to passion]. Because of this, the gift of healing and other visible gifts are very dangerous for those to whom they are given, as they are highly valued by carnal and sensuous people, and are glorified by them. The unseen, blessed gifts, incomparably higher than the ones seen, such as the gift to lead souls to salvation and to heal them from the passions, are not understood or seen by the world. The world not only does not glorify the servants of God who have these gifts, but persecutes them as ones acting against the powers of the world, as casting aspersions on the dominion of the prince of the world (Saint Tikhon of Zadonsk, Vol.15, letter 103. sect. 4). The merciful
God grants men that which is essential and useful, although they do not understand or value it. He does not grant that which is of little use, and often may be quite harmful, although carnal understanding and ignorance insatiably thirst for it and seek it.
Before the Second Coming of Christ there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars (Luke 21:25), the sea will roar and be tossed. How are we to discern these signs from the signs of the Antichrist, as he also will give signs in the sun and moon, the stars and air (Commentary on the Gospel of Mark by Blessed Theophylact, 8:11 12)? The first signs will be true and thus they will be completely different from the signs of the Antichrist, which will be comprised of manifestations deceiving the senses.
The performers of the signs of the Antichrist will be the Antichrist and his apostles; the signs in the sun, moon and stars, these signs heralds of the coming of Christ, will appear by themselves, without any intermediary. The heavenly lights will have fulfilled their designation for which, by the command of their Creator, they came to shine in the heavens (Gen. 1:14). They fulfilled their assignment (significance) at the Birth of Christ, through a miraculous star (Matt. 2:2), they fulfilled it at the crucifixion of the God man, when the sun was covered by a thick cover of darkness at noontime (Matt. 27:45).
The Holy Evangelist Matthew tells us that upon the cessation of sorrows, produced by the reign of the Antichrist, the coming of Christ will occur immediately and it will begin with [the signs when] the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven (Matt. 24:29). These celestial bodies will remain in their places, notes the blessed Theophylact of Bulgaria, but they will dim and will appear to ones eyes as having disappeared from the vault of heaven, because of the abundance of heavenly light, filling the world in preparation for the acceptance of the Lord in His glory.
We are emboldened to call our teaching on miracles and signs the expression of the Holy Fathers. The necessity of presenting this teaching in an exact and detailed exposition is obvious.
True signs were to assist true knowledge of God, and the salvation it granted. False signs assisted error and the destruction it produced. In particular, the action of the signs produced by the Antichrist will be vast and powerful, it will carry unfortunate mankind to the recognition of the messenger of satan as god.
A devout contemplation of the miracles accomplished by our Lord Jesus Christ is edifying and consoling, and acts for the salvation of our souls. What holy simplicity there is in them! These miracles made it so easy to know God. What blessed goodness, what humility, what indisputable force of conviction! The contemplation of Christs miracles leads us to the Word, Who is God. In order to restore fallen mankind to communion with Him, God blessedly willed that His Word become incarnate and live among men, enter into the closest relation with them, making them His own, and lift them to heaven. Having put on humanity, the Word remains the Word of God, and acts as the Word of God according to Its Divine essence.
He sits at the right hand of the Father in His adopted humanity and dwells everywhere as God. It [the Word] is inscribed on paper. It is clothed in on sounds, but being Spirit and Life (John 6:63) It enters minds and hearts, re-establishing those who unite with Him in spirit, and draws the body also to a spiritual life.
Contemplating the miracles of Christ, we rise to the knowledge of the awesome significance which is contained in the Word of God. The one thing needful (Luke 10:42) for our salvation is the Word which serves salvation and accomplishes salvation with all perfection. Knowing the Word of God from the Holy Scriptures, uttered by the Holy Spirit and explained by the Holy Spirit united with knowledge received from this activity, directed according to the Word of God, blessed by the knowledge given by Divine Grace, grants to the Christian purity of mind and heart.
In this purity comes to shine spiritual reasoning, like the sun on a clear, cloudless sky. At the dawn of day after the nights darkness, the images of sensory objects change: some, until then invisible, become visible; others which were seen unclearly, blending with other objects, are now separated from them and become defined. This occurs not because the objects change, but because the relation of human sight towards them changes with the change of the darkness to the light of day. Exactly the same occurs in the relation of the human mind to objects moral and spiritual, when the mind is enlightened by spiritual knowledge proceeding from the Holy Spirit.
Only with the light of spiritual reasoning can the soul see the holy way to God! Only with the light of spiritual reasoning can the unseen procession of the mind and heart to God be accomplished without sin. Only with the light of spiritual reasoning can we escape error, the thickets and abyss of destruction. There, where this light is not, there is no sight of truth; there, where this light is not, there is no God pleasing virtue which saves man and leads him into the mansions of paradise (Saint Isaac the Syrian, Homilies 25, 26, 27, & 28).
To avoid the misfortunes into which the viewing of signs and miracles by the carnal mind can entice us, the sight of the spiritual eye should be enlightened with the light of spiritual reasoning. We saw the essence of the miracles accomplished by the God man. We saw what their goal was. The signs, having accomplished their service, departed, leaving now the essential doer ~the Word~ to act, Who remains and will remain the doer until the end of the world, as He Himself said of Himself: I am with you always, even unto the end of the world (Matt. 28:20).
In the meantime, men, while losing reverence and respect for all that is sacred, losing humility, acknowledging themselves unworthy not only to accomplish signs, but even to see them, thirst for miracles more than ever before. Humanity, intoxicated with self conceit, presumption and ignorance, strives without discernment, rashly and boldly, towards all that seems miraculous and does not refuse to be a participant in performing miracles, but is determined to do it, without a second thought. Such a thoughtless movement is fraught with more danger than ever before.
We are gradually approaching that time when a vast spectacle of numerous and amazing false miracles will be revealed, enticing into destruction those unfortunate children of carnal reasoning, who will be seduced and tricked by these miracles.
The quickening of the soul by the Word of God results in a living faith in Christ. A living faith, as it were, sees Christ (Heb. 11:27). Christianity is revealed before its eyes, while remaining a mystery; while remaining unknowable it is clear and understandable; it is no longer covered by that thick, impenetrable curtain, as when faith is dead. A living faith is spiritual reasoning (Saint Isaac the Syrian, Homily 28). It has no need of signs, being wholly satisfied by the signs of Christ, and the greatest of His signs, the crown of signs His Word.
The desire to see signs serves as an indication of unbelief, and the signs were given to unbelievers to turn them to belief. Let us cling to the Word of God with all our soul, let us unite with Him into one spirit, and the signs of the Antichrist will not even attract our attention. With disdain and revulsion we will turn our eyes away from them, as from a demonic spectacle, as from an act of fanatical enemies of God, as from a mocking of God, and as from deathly poison and infection. Let us remember the following especially important note taken from the experience of the ascetics all demonic manifestations are of such a nature that even minute attention to them is dangerous, for such attention [even if] allowed without any special sympathy to the manifestation, can make a most harmful impression, and result in a serious temptation.
Knowledge of God, living faith, blessed humility of mind, and pure prayer are attributes of spiritual reasoning, they are essential parts of it. On the contrary, ignorance of God, unbelief, blindness of spirit, pride, self confidence and self conceit are elements of a carnal mind. Such a mind does not know God, does not accept and does not understand the means offered by God for receiving knowledge of God, and thus creates for itself a mistaken, soul destructing means for the acquisition of the knowledge of God, in accordance with its own state it asks for a sign from heaven. Amen.
I think it is good to agree with all that has been written here on signs from heaven and allow that Heaven may well decide to give a sign that the Roman Catholic Church would pronounce Signum Magnum and worthy of credence.
The story of this Sign, its theological and prophetic significance is what is of import. The Sign merely ratifies the message.
Here is the story.
On Sept 19, 1846 Our Lady appeared to two shepherd children on the Mountain of La Salette in France. They were not asking for a sign. They were pious shepherd minding their sheep who stopped to pray the Angelus when the bells of the village rang for the Angelus. Our Lady appeared and spoke to them of events that were to come upon the Church. Her message confidence contained the words:
“Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the AntiChrist. The Church will be in Eclipse”
This message reached the ears of Henry Edward Cardinal Manning and he inquired into it diligently. In 1861, he published the Present Crisis of the Holy See - just after the Masonic Revolution in Italy under Garibaldi seized the papal lands.
The Cardinal wrote: “the apostacy of the city of Rome from the Vicar of Christ and its destruction by AntiChrist may be thoughts so new to many CAtholics, that I think it well to recite the text of the theologians of greatest repute. First Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Biega, Suarrez, Bellarmine and Bosius that Rome (the Vatican) will apostasize from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ and return to its ancient paganism…then the Church shall be scattered, riven intot the wilderness and shall be for a time, as it was in the beginning: invisible, hidden in catacombs, in dens in mountains, in lurking places for a time it shall be swept, as it were from the face of the earth: such is the universal testimony of the Fathers of the Early Church.”
In 1888, Pope Leo XIII had a vision that essentially confirmed the words of Our Lady of Salette. Pope Leo saw “the hour of the power of darkness” when strength was “given him over the continual sacrifice and truth cast down on the ground.” Dan 8:2
In response to his vision, Pope Leo composed the “Exocism Against Satan and the Rebellious Angels” and he ordered its recitation at the low mass through the universal Church - his standing orders. The relevant portion of this prayer goes like this:
“In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impeity with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered
Arise, therefore, invincible Prince”
Pope Leo XIII issued in his moto proprio 25 Sept 1888, pub May 18, 1890 and also included in all editions of The Raccolta 1890-1934 when it was struck out by the Penitentiary Apostolic.
By 1916, most of the Bishops of the Catholic world had forbidden the imprimatured Confidence of La Salette from being published in their dioceses. In France, hostility to this publication was especially strong. And one could be excommunicated if found to possess a copy.
In 1916, the Archangel invoked by the Exorcism mandated by Pope Leo with regard to this matter appeared at the Serra da Aire near the village of Fatima. He appeared to three shepherd children of the Serra again at the time of the Angelus.
He appeared and called to the children who had run and hidden themselves with their sheep. He prostrated himself upon the earth and prayed:
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the sacriledges, outrages and indiference by which he, himself, is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners.”
“Really, we did not know what to think” said Lucia dos Santos (aged 10) when she reported these events to her parish priest.
In 1917, Our Lady appeared at Fatima and on Oct 13, 1917 she revealed the means by which she would crush the serpents head. And a solar spectacle occurred outside the natural order that was witness by the crowd at the Serra and by the surrounding villages up to 15 miles away by people who had no interest in the events of Fatima at all. And the story was picked up by the secular press.
As St Paul remarked of the events at Pentecost: “this think was not done in a corner”. The enemies of our Lord, his Church and all humanity were placed upon notice.
“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph”.
