Our kingdom is not of this world. The kingdom of this world belongs to Satan. Don't forget that and remember that Satan hates the Orthodox church with a vengeance and he will do all he can to destroy us, first seeking to woo us with riches and power and if this doesn't work then he will rip out our hearts, cut off our noses and gouge out our eyes. This has been the lot of God's people for two thousand years and will continue until the day of Christ's return.
Be not deceived for Satan loves America, it is the apple of his eye for he has built for himself a congregation of heretics and apostates. Followers who read the bible and worship faithfully Sunday after Sunday but who is this god they worship? Where does heresy and apostasy come from? Who is it that woos men into a false belief system, a false church, a false religion, a counterfeit of the truth? Is it none other than the evil one himself? The evil one delights in the American religious system of freedom of worship for men can choose any way they wish to believe and all ways are OK so long as they do not lead to Orthodoxy.
Satan has a strategy to destroy the American Orthodox believer and we need now more than ever to gird ourselves for the struggle that is before us. Now more than ever, we need to turn to the Mother Church rejecting modern innovations immersing ourselves in worship, prayer, ascetic deeds and fellowship of the believers avoiding the distractions and pleasures of this world. Watch yourselves dear brethren and prepare for the time is at hand.
