Thy Kingdom Come

Are the Orthodox part of the Roman Catholics in the Book of Revelation?

The question was asked, “Are the Orthodox part of the Roman Catholics in the Book of Revelation?” In brief, the answer is a resounding “yes, of course!” I was surprised when I found the above question because the Book of Revelation does not pertain to a single denomination, no matter how much various denominations of one stripe or another may desire to hijack this part of Scripture – indeed, any part of Scripture, if we come to that – to accomodate their self-serving, self-righteous agendas. It is also not non-denominational as the term is currently understood, to be crystal clear.

What is presently happening in our world is a sifting – of those who truly desire the Triune (more…)

For the people

“When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughter of Zion and cleansed Jerusalem of the blood shed in her with the blast of judgment and the blast of destruction, Yahweh will come and rest on the whole stretch of Mount Zion and on those who are gathered there, a cloud by day and smoke, and by night the brightness of a flaring fire. For, over all, the glory of Yahweh will be a canopy and a tent to give shade by day from the heat, refuge and shelter from the storm and the rain” (Is 4:4-6).

What does it mean to be a child of God?

To be a child of God means to be an adoptive member of the Divine Family.

When we become children of the living God by taking steps to rediscover our true heritage and giving the Almighty Father our fiat with sincerity of heart, in essence and in fact, we become adoptive members of the Divine Family. The Family – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and, yes, even the Mother* – take us in. They take us into Their Hearts and envelop us in Their bosom, showering us with all we need to become gods by grace (2 P 1:4; Ps 82:6).  (more…)

The Heart of the Father by Thomas W. Petrisko

HeartoftheFatherCov-final__53107_stdThe Heart of the Father: Why the Paternal Heart of Life is the Answer to the Culture of Death by Thomas W. Petrisko (2013) of Saint Andrew’s Productions.

“”We raise our voices and pray that the Love which is in the Father,” Pope John Paul II writes in Dives in Misericordia, “may once again be revealed at this stage of history…that it may be shown to be present in our modern world to be more powerful than evil, more powerful than sin and death.”

“Now, in our time, our Heavenly Father shows us the means to see this great Love of His that is so merciful, so wanting to be discovered – it is through His Heart of Life, His Divine Paternal Heart(more…)

Thy Kingdom come – 1 – Thought for the day

“Thy Kingdom come:” how beautiful and profound are those three words in the Lord’s prayer. Inherently, though some are still unaware of this, those three words of Jesus Christ, which He taught us to say daily, mean that we are asking our beautiful Father to come and live in us as we live in Him. This as wherever there is the Almighty Father there is the Kingdom, because the Father Himself is the Kingdom and provides the kingdom for His faithful children to enjoy. Ergo “Thy Kingdom come” is the coming and reigning of the Divine Will on earth.

Prayer for the New Israel

“Have mercy on us, O God of all, and behold us; show us the light of Your mercies. Send Your fear upon the nations that have not sought after You: that they may know that there is no God beside You; and that they may show forth Your wonders. Lift up Your hand over the strange nations, that they may see Your power. For as You have been sanctified (more…)

Thy Kingdom come

“Whoever prays for the coming of the kingdom of God within himself is praying rights, praying for the kingdom to dawn in him, bear fruit and reach perfection. For God reigns in every saint, and every saint obeys God’s spiritual laws – God, who dwells in him just as He dwells in any well-ordered city. The Father is present in him and in his soul Christ reigns alongside the Father, as it is said: ‘We (more…)

Infinite Love waits

God our Father waits for us to return to Him, to live in His divine bosom – Infinite and tender Love forever; where Christ Himself lives. Who would not want that? Yet many of us – so many of us – do not want to return, to both our Father and our God, because we prefer doing things our own way, as though we are completely sufficient unto ourselves. A myth if ever there was one. How long, (more…)

Consecration of the world to the Divine Heart of God the Father

Text of "Our Father" prayer with Tri...

The consecration of the world – or rather the purification and re-consecration of the world – to the Divine Heart of God the Father will end the Great Chastisement, particularly the global persecution of Christians that is forthcoming. How many, though, are ready in their hearts, minds and souls for this to happen; the fulfillment of the Kingdom come? How many are ready to sheath their pride, arrogance and earthly wisdom, in order to bow down before and worship God the Omnipotent Father? How many are both ready and want to see this happen in their lifetime? The consecration will happen but it depends on us whether it happens sooner rather than later, with consequences for everyone – believer and non-believer alike.  (more…)

We will be restored mightily

Presently, we are going through purification which is only going to intensify, until everything that is not of God is either restored or removed, so that the Reign, the Kingdom, of Our Father – the era of His Divine Heart and Will (the era of peace and holiness, the beginning of the eighth day) - can commence on earth. In the process, many of us will lose both people and things in every (more…)

The true meaning of living in the Era of Peace

How shall we be living in the era of peace, after the great Chastisement has been fulfilled? Unlike for many, if not most, of us living presently in the era of the flesh, during the era of peace we will be living thoroughly spiritualized lives – lives we cannot even begin to conceive of, right now – because the said era will, in effect, be the era of the Reign of the Father, in the intensely Eucharistic  (more…)

The coming of the day of the Lord

“But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence and the elements shall be melted with heat and the earth and the works which are in it shall be burnt up. Seeing then that all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be in holy conversation and godliness? Looking (more…)

The beauty of the illumination of the heart of our souls

Many people speak about illumination these days, but not all understand what it really is. Illumination is the illumination of the heart of our souls, the nous. When the nous is illuminated through divine grace – what the Eastern Christians, especially the desert masters, continually strived for (and some attained) through the combination (more…)

The Coming of the Kingdom – 4

“Do not fret because of the wicked, do not envy those who do evil: for they wither quickly like grass and fade like the green of the fields. If you trust in Yahweh and do good, then you will live in the land and be secure. If you find your delight in Yahweh, He will grant you the desires of your heart. Leave all to Yahweh, trust in Him and He will act, so that your vindication shines forth like the light, your (more…)

Infinite Love – the Divine Light Himself – desires to live both with us and, most especially, in us; in the very heart of our souls. But do we want Him to do so? Or do we prefer to continue living our lives as we presently are, in order not to change? Oh, if only we knew and understood what truly awaits us in our current (more…)
