In his interview to Russian journalists, famous Italian stigmatist Giorgio Bongiovanni tells about the Second Coming of Christ, or more exactly of His advent as the Judge. It should be mentioned we permanently encounter such indication in prophecies and scriptures that the awaited Messiah (Teacher) will judge humanity. From numerous sources we know that Rigden Djappo and Osiris (as one and the same “person”) is the Judge of human souls. We dare warily assume “the Second Coming of Christ” is exactly the coming of Rigden Djappo to the secular world.
Here we cite a prediction by Matrona of Moscow (1881-1952), who was relatively recently canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church and named Saint. By the way, in our previous article Gabriel standing! Five-century-old prophecy by Ursula Southeil, Mother Shipton we referred to an obscure “fiery Dragon” mentioned in Mother Shipton’s tough prophetic poem. Let’s read the relevant extract one more time:
Edgar Cayce (born on 18 March 1877 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, USA, died on 3 January 1945 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA): American mystic, “healer” and medium; author of thousands of stenographically recorded answers to many different questions, starting with diagnoses and recipes for patients and up to information about the reasons of downfall of former civilizations. Since most of records were made in a special state of trance, resembling sleep, he got the nickname of “the Sleeping Prophet”. His prophetic abilities may be compared to the unique foresight gift of great Nostradamus and legendary Bulgarian clairvoyant Vanga. Edgar Cayce performed medical diagnosing via clairvoyance during forty-three years. He left stenographical records of about 30,000 such diagnoses to the Association for Research and Enlightenment, in addition to hundreds of comprehensive reports containing patient evidences and doctors’ notes. In the United States there live hundreds of people who are ready to confirm the accuracy of his diagnoses and efficacy of his suggestions.
Israeli newspaper observer Chemi Shalev discovered parallels between the Ukrainian events and the Bible doomsday prophecies.
The Second coming of Jesus Christ and the beginning of the end of the world are not too far off, since Crimea seizure by the Russian army is very similar to biblical prophecies of the Apocalypse. In Israeli edition Haaretz Chemi Shalev writes about the likeness of the recent events in Ukraine with the biblical doomsday episodes. In particular, the author refers to the story of Gog and Magog peoples whose invasion’s to shake the world before the second coming of Jesus Christ. Antique historian Josephus Flavius considered that Scythian lands, i.e. the territory of contemporary Ukraine including Crimea, represented Magog. The observer also refers to the Book of Ezekiel, where Gog is mentioned. According to traditional translations of the Bible, Gog is the “chief prince of Meshech and Tuval”, ancient kingdoms near the Black Sea. But the term used for “chief prince” in Hebrew is nesi rosh which could also mean the “ruler,” “president” or “prince” of kingdom Rosh. "So Gog is the prince of Rosh, or the President of Rosh, or, with a little bit of help, the President of Russia,” the article author suggests.
Here we present one of religious views of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, which is based on interpretation of the Holy Bible. We have found this article on the web and considered it appropriate to publish it in our Christianity section with certain amendments. Since we believe our approach to such a significant event as the Second Coming must be as versatile as possible, a different opinion, even from a narrow religious perspective, is always welcome on our portal. Hopefully, the author of these lines truly believes in the advent of Christ and not just uses this “fashionable sacred legend” as a habitual tool to strengthen his or her local earthly power, although to be more precise holy Christian texts tell about the advent of the Holy Spirit or Comforter rather than the return of Jesus Christ. After all, Christ himself said so to the apostles in the Gospel of John 14:15. Therefore, let’s try to treat the information given herein indulgently.
Once, while studying translations of the Nag Hammadi Library texts, I ran across records about a Christian movement that emerged around the 10th century in the Balkans, the followers of which were called Bogomils. It is considered that the name of this movement originated from Bogomil, a man of religion who lived in the 10th century in the territory of contemporary Bulgaria. No specific records of his life have been preserved (here and below, only the most interesting facts are highlighted). What I regard as the most interesting are the ideas of this religious movement which are very similar to those of Cathars.
After publication of Predictions of the last Pope and flow of interesting comments on that, we decided to elucidate the subject in more detail. The relevant text is historically known as the Prophecy of the Popes and attributed to Saint Malachy (1094-1148), Archbishop of Armagh, Ireland. The prophecy was first published in 1595. It consists of 112 short Latin phrases describing the Popes of Rome, starting with Celestine II elected in 1143, up to the Second Coming and Last Judgement. According to the most widespread interpretation of the prophecy, the last but one Pope is Benedict XVI (2005-2013) associated with the phrase Gloria Olivae (“the Glory of Olive”). His rule terminated in the evening on 28 February 2013. The last Pope is referred to as Petrus Romanus (Peter of Rome). Two closing paragraphs of the prophecy contain the following text:
This prophecy was made by a 90-year-old Norwegian woman from Valdres in 1968 and concerns events that will take place before the Second Coming of Christ. Evangelist Emanuel Minos once wrote down the prophecy and put it aside, thinking it’s not verisimilar. While looking through his records recently, he realized in astonishment: what seemed improbable in the past has proved to be normal in our society.
That Norwegian woman showed herself as passionate Christian and had a good reputation among those who knew her. This is what she saw:
“I saw the time before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the world like a king of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia and Norway; saw certain things to take place just before Jesus’ return and troubles that we’ve never experienced before.”
This video is comforting for everyone who’s in spiritual search. It is the present-day reality for entire humanity. It is Love penetrating the depth of one’s soul. It’s the Truth of the Last Time with timer counting down, the Truth about the advent of the Comforter in the last times, about an opportunity for every person to deeply feel the Holy Spirit gift, and a chance to experience genuine Freedom and Love.
The topic of the Judgement Day and Second Coming of Jesus Christ is quite popular in speeches by Protestant preachers, and I won’t analyse the true causes of that, which, I hope, are clear for many people. Hundreds of Christian denominations originating from the single New Testament, for some reason have different interpretations of what is written in the Holy Bible, though this is totally understandable. For as long as people keep knocking at the heaven door not with love, but with their mind, such splitting and divisions will continue.
Yet, the purpose of this article is not to catch anyone in separation or disunity, but to state that millions of faithful Christians all over the world also hear from their missionary pastors about the Doomsday approach and the coming of messiah Jesus Christ, although, if we read Gospels attentively, the Saviour didn’t tell anything regarding his return, however he did mention the Comforter and the Holy Spirit! “The Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (Gospel of John 14:26).
