Some important words on the meaning behind the physical war ongoing in the
(which can also be applied to what we see happening in the Middle East to Christians, to various troubles in the South and the other States, and to other upheavals in the world): Ukraine

“Situation when people have abandoned God can be overcome only by bloodshed. The Lord guided Jews across the desert for forty years to eliminate the old tribe and make the new blessed tribe appear, capable to love God and work for Him,” Father Vladimir said.

The political, economic, socio-cultural reasons for this and any other war are always secondary; the main cause is the spiritual dimension. What is the central, deep, spiritual cause of this war?
The words of the Apostle Paul to the Ephesians: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” This concerns any war. The visible, material causes of war explain nothing; this is a ruse of dark forces. A true warrior always fights against demons and is the opponent of demonic powers. We fight with prayer and the Word of God. At the present time, these forces have gathered around
, for this is the spiritual center of Novorussia, and the Svyatogorsky Monastery is one of the bulwarks of Orthodoxy. Terrible trials await all those who defend Slavyansk and other cities, all the protectors of the Orthodox faith. However, these tests will be of benefit to our Orthodox army and make it spiritually stronger. As the faithful Prince St. Aleksandr Nevsky said, “Not in power is God, but in truth.” God’s truth is with us, and victory will be ours. Slavyansk

. . . What is the deeper, spiritual and eschatological meaning of namely this war?
The establishment of planetary Satanic rule. What’s occurring here is the very beginning of a global war. Not for resources or territory, that’s secondary. This is a war for the destruction of true Christianity, Orthodoxy. The worldview of the wealthiest men who own almost all the material goods in the world is Satanism. Having summoned the elements of the First and Second World Wars and a Third Information War, and having laid hundreds of millions of the slain at the altar of their father, Satan, they have initiated the Fourth World War. They are intentionally hastening the reign of Antichrist – an order offensive to God, in which man is not the image and likeness of the Creator of worlds visible and invisible, but a biomass programmed through information and directed through virtual bank digits, subject at any moment to annihilation.
The spirits of malice will fashion many wiles so that their subordinate “masters of the world” will begin a mass slaughter. Planes that no one shot down will crash, the dead will call their relatives as if still alive; there will be those armed to the teeth who are defenseless, and the unarmed will become more terrible than armies…Many consider that the punitive forces are shooting at the peaceful population from a safe distance due only to military-political reasoning. No. The lower-level executioners have been so inspired, believing that at any price – killing fellow Ukrainians – they must preserve the country’s unity. And those politicians who give the killers their orders understand what they are doing: they are bringing forth a sacrifice. Just as Hitler did. And as he was, today’s hidden rulers are racists. The roots of racism are occultism and Satanism. The possessed Fuhrer didn’t just destroy a population that was inadequate from his point of view. With full comprehension, like a pagan shaman, he made mass sacrifices to the demonic hordes, appeasing them with blood in exchange for a promise of power over the world.
The madmen who prostrate themselves before the golden calf and fancy themselves the rulers of this world are doing the same. They, the “chosen,” are cleansing the world of “excess” “sub-humans.” And the one thing that genuinely blocks their satanic plans is the Orthodox Church, and the protector of the Orthodox faith is
. Our enemies strive to crush them by fracturing the greater Russian world to which Ukraine belongs, turning the latter into a Nazi platform, a launch pad for a new world war in which it is planned to “purify the planet of excess biomass” and deliver so many victims to the dark powers that there might not be any defenders of a united Ukraine physically remaining.

God allows war for the sake of calling us to our senses. . . .
