Rapture Flash Drive



Ain’t gonna be no rapture, folks.  Use that $30 to get to an Orthodox church at a parish or monastery for the Divine Liturgy, where chronos time becomes kairos time, in which past, present, and future are all experienced as one in the presence of the Most Holy Body and Most Precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ:

PRIEST:    (quietly)    Having in remembrance, therefore, this saving commandment and all those things which have come to pass for us; the Cross, the Graves, the Resurrection on the third day, the Ascension into heaven, the Session at the right hand, and the second, glorious Advent.

--One of the priestly prayers from The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, http://www.stgeorgenj.com/the-divine-liturgy-of-st-john-chrysostom.html

The Second Coming can be experienced here and now; it was meant to be.  This is the source of the transforming power of the local church; it is what makes a local church part of the Body of Christ (i.e., the presence and partaking of the Holy Eucharist).  There is no need to weary our eyes scanning the skies, all the while falling under the spell of demonic illusions (which will come mainly from the sky, the realm of the demons, as the Holy Fathers warn us).  The promise of Emmanuel is still available for all those in the Orthodox Church who ‘With fear of God, and faith, and love, draw near (Divine Liturgy).’

Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
