After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Why would anyone think that President Trump is an antichrist?


Anyone who thinks that President Trump is an antichrist, has not studied Antichrist closely enough.  Archbishop Averky says we need to study Antichrist, or else we will not recognize him when he comes.  Why would anyone think that President Trump is an antichrist?   Best we* can figure is some people are offended by his personality or his speech which can be rather unrefined, unbridled, (too spontaneous, and fearlessly insulting).  The exact opposite of the deceivers whose "words were smoother than oil."

Antichrist will establish One World Government and One World Church.
Politicians who push for Globalism and the New World Order are serving the antichrist spirit whether they are conscious of it or not.

Other things our Church teaches us about Antichrist is that he will make his appearance on the world stage amidst global chaos –– possibly a world war.  We also know that he will be loved instantly by everyone and charm everyone with a spellbinding charisma.

Before the advent of Antichrist, his appearance is already being prepared in the world.  "The mystery is already at work", and the forces preparing for his appearance struggle above all against lawful royal authority.  The holy Apostle Paul says that Antichrist cannot appear until "he that restrains" is removed.  St. John Chrysostom explains that "he that restrains" is the lawful, godly authority.

Such an authority struggles with evil.  The "mystery" working in the world does not want this; it does not want an authority that wars against evil; on the contrary, it wants an authority of iniquity...

       [cf. II Thess. 2:7]  Man of God p. 176, St. John's  "Talk on the Dread Judgement"

Isn't it obvious that President Trump is fighting with all his strength against the antichrist spirit and the servants of antichrist who are ushering in the NWO?  Even unworthy America, –a democracy founded by Protestants– is given a lawful authority to restrain the antichrist.  I can only be grateful to God.

So if it is not his "personality," then what it is?  Maybe his actions are seen as rash.  Well, Christ was also "rash" when he turned over the money-changers' tables.

Maybe it is not that President Trump's actions are seen as rash, but that his actions are seen as "wrong."    Then this means, for these folks, that their sense of right and wrong is out of whack.  Let right prevail! at least for a little reprieve, after the horror we endured the last 8 years.  Let us observe good in action again, for a time before the end.  Thank God for our new President!  God protect him from assassination –– from "do-gooders" who don't know the difference between right and wrong, who have right and wrong reversed in their minds.  (That could be caused by watching TV... Lady Gaga commercials...)

I'm hoping to find something I once saw written by our Church about how all the world leaders, good and bad, rule by God's allowance.  And that every nation, (Christian or Moslem or pagan or whatever), has its own angel appointed as its guardian.  If anyone comes across this writing, please forward it to me so I can post it.   Thank you. 

*"we" in this instance means some of my Orthodox friends and I, including one friend in world-orthodoxy.
