    Prophecies Of St Seraphim Of Vyritsa (1866-1949)

    The Elder said that a time will come (it is already coming!) when the debauchery and moral decline of the young will reach their ultimate point. Virtually no-one will remain uncorrupted. Seeing their impunity, the young will consider that everything is permitted them for the satisfaction of their whims and lusts. They will begin to gather in groups and gangs, stealing and debauching themselves. But a time will come when the voice of God will be heard, when the young will understand that it is not possible to go on living in that way. They will come to the faith in various ways, drawn ever more strongly to the ascetic life. Those who before were sinners and drunkards will fill the churches and greatly thirst for spiritual life. Many of them will become monks. Monasteries will open, churches will be filled with the faithful. Then young people will go on pilgrimages. It will be a glorious time! The repentance of those that sin now will be all the more ardent...

    The storm will pass over the Russian land,
    The Lord will forgive the Russian people their sins.
    And in Divine and Holy beauty the Cross
    Will shine brightly above the Church of God once more.
    And the ringing of bells will awaken
    All our Holy Rus to salvation from the slumber of sin.
    Holy monasteries will open anew,
    And faith in God will unite all.

    The salvation of the world is from Russia. St Petersburg will become the spiritual centre of the country. There will be more great events in Russia - the opening and glorification of holy relics in St Petersburg - a great joy for the whole world...

    The Orient will be baptized in Russia. The whole heavenly world is praying for the enlightenment of the Orient.

    A time will come when there will be a spiritual flowering in Russia. Many churches and monasteries will open, even those of other faiths will come to us in ships to be baptized. But this will not last long - for about fifteen years, then Antichrist will come ...

    The time will come when there will be no persecution, but money and the attractions of this world will draw people away from God and many more souls will perish than during the period of open militant atheism. On the one hand, they will raise up crosses and gild cupolas, but on the other hand, the kingdom of lies and evil will come. The True Church will always be persecuted. Salvation will only be possible through sorrows and illness, persecutions will take on a very refined and unpredictable character. It will be terrible to live to those times.

    A time will come when Russia will be torn apart. First they will split her up, then they will start to plunder her wealth. The West will in every way try to further Russia’s destruction and hand over her eastern part to China. The Far East will fall into the hands of the Japanese. Siberia will fall to the Chinese, who will start to settle in Russia, marry Russians and eventually, through cunning and craft, occupy all Siberia as far as the Urals. When China tries to go further, the West will oppose it.

    Many countries will fall on Russia, but she will survive, though losing a great part of her territory. That war, foretold by the Holy Scriptures, will bring about the unity of mankind. People will understand that it will be impossible to go on, otherwise every living thing will die. They will elect a single government – this will be the antichamber for the reign of Antichrist. Then the persecution of Christians will begin...

    Among the disciples of St Seraphim, there were two eldresses, Pulcheria and Alexandra. Both had the gift of clairvoyance and the same gift of prophecy as their spiritual father. Of the future they said the following:

    Much blood will be shed inside our country during a war with peoples of the Caucasus. A time will come when they will take away the red flags…the rule of the House of Romanov will not come all at once, there will a time of transition. Then Russia will be ungovernable, there will be a power struggle in Russia. At a difficult time for Russia someone who has been miraculously saved from the House of Romanov will come to power...


    This is an interesting prophecy.  
    although there is no clairvoyance in Christianity, only prophecy, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

    I want to look this person up and read what I can find about him! >>>> Prophecies Of St Seraphim Of Vyritsa (1866-1949)


    He definitely got this part right!

    Russia Built 3 Churches Per Day, 1000 Per Year For 28 Years - A World Record



    “More than that, I know no other precedent of this kind anywhere throughout the history of mankind...."

    Noting that today many say that modern society lives in the post-Christian era, (Metropolitan Hillarion) said that it is not felt in Russia
    .

    eligious faith in Russia never grew more intensively than in the past three decades, believes Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk.

    The head of the Department of External Church Relations (DECR) spoke about religious faith in Russia, and its history and revival in recent decades at a meeting with a group of professors and 250 students from Italy on October 11, 2016, reports the DECR’s website.

    “The epoch which we call ‘the second Baptism of Russia’ begun in our Church in 1988. The mass baptism of our population started in Russia in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s,” Metropolitan Hilarion said while relating the history of Orthodoxy in Russia to the Italian guests.

    “Today we have 35,000 churches. That means that we have opened 29,000 churches over twenty-eight years, opening more than 1,000 churches per year or three per day… Earlier we had three theological seminaries or academies, and today there are over fifty,” the metropolitan stressed.

    In Metropolitan Hilarion’s view, Russian history has “never witnessed such growth in religious faith as we have seen in the past twenty-eight years.”

    “More than that, I know no other precedent of this kind anywhere throughout the history of mankind. We are aware that the epoch of St. Constantine the Great in the fourth century was a time when churches were built everywhere and mass baptisms took place. But there is no statistics for that period, while we do have statistics for the epoch we live in,” he added.

    Noting that today many say that modern society lives in the post-Christian era, the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church said that it is not felt in Russia.

    “With our own eyes we have seen the power of Christianity which enables us to open three churches per day today. We have witnessed how Christianity transforms human lives, to what extent Christ and His teaching are still important nowadays,” Metropolitan Hilarion said in conclusion.

    Professors and students of schools under the Jesuit Order in Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin and Palermo took part in the meeting with the Chairman of the Department for External Church Relations.

    I think this is a positive development, despite what the haters say, promoting Russian Orthodox church beliefs among Russians will have a great contribution to nation building and spiritual  unity of the country, also they need to aggressively  promote this brand of Christianity among its muslim population and convert them as well as abroad in Europe, Central Asia, East Asia and elsewhere in the globe.

    Meanwhile, the West is growing less and less religious. Becoming more immoral, lost, and debauched

    So is Russia

    All the churches in the world are worth little if only old grandma's go to visit them

    And more over, if the rural proportion of the population continues to decline. In villages and small towns churches maintain their communal function. In cities, they're just there for show.

    Instead of building all these churches over the past 28 years, maybe they should have paid attention to the collapsing rural economy as a result of all these economic reforms, corruption and lack of state subsidies.
    In the 80s 1/3rd of Russia's population lived in rural areas. Now it's less than 17%.
