Please,can u tell the meaning of Nicholas?
This book is different in the sense it goes through each chapter in Revelation starting from chapter one of Revelation to Chapter 22 and the second difference is it has Gentiles and Jews here during the great Tribulation according to Scripture. Below is a preview of the book The apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5: 8 (KJV): "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” This passage explains that when we are absent from the body, in case of death we are then taken to the presence of the Lord and, according to the book of Luke, angels will carry us to the presence of the Lord. Luke 16:22 (KJV): “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died and was buried.” We see the angels carrying Lazarus into the bosom of Abraham who was in Paradise, and we know that when Jesus died he took Paradise to heaven. Luke 23: 42-43 (KJV): “And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou come into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise. Then how do the dead in Christ rise first if they are already in the presence of the Lord? The rapture is the reunion of the spirit with our bodies, but many people’s body who already died are in graves here on earth. So, in the rapture, those who are still alive will see dead bodies raising from the grave. 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” When Jesus will come, those who are already dead will enter into new bodies after the Holy Spirit raises them up.” 1 Corinthians 15: 52 (KJV): “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” This scenario will appear like the modern version of a TV show "The zombie apocalypse," but it will convert to Christ many unbelievers as they will witness something supernatural. Revelation 11:11 “And after three days and a half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.” The Holy Spirit will raise the bodies from the grave as He did in Romans 8:11 (KJV): “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” So fear will fall on anyone seeing the dead bodies raising from the graves joining with the spirits who descended from Jesus as He returns, but those frighten people will give glory to God and become saved. Revelation 11:13 (KJV): “And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted and gave glory to the God of heaven.” The frighten ones will reign in the thousand-year reign. Zechariah 14:2-4 and Revelation 16:14-16 is the battle of Armageddon and after the battle. Zechariah 14:16 (KJV): “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.” We know that eventually not all of them will stay true to the Lord and will follow Satan, as we show scriptures in our book of the events. Those who will turn their back on God will be tormented with Satan in the Lake of Fire with the rest of the dead. The description of the end time scenario of our book is different from the traditional movies and popular interpretations of the rapture. Commonly, movies that took inspiration from popular doctrines portrayed the rapture by omitting the divine sequence of the prophecy - when scriptures are overlooked - and display a scenario of missing people all of sudden, leaving desolate images after that. So, let the Word of God speaks as it proceeded out of His mouth and as He revealed it to us in a divine and perfect order. Comparing scriptures with scriptures, as taught in 1 Corinthians 2:13, we can be assured that it is God's spirit guiding us in the interpretation of the prophecy to stay firm within the Word that God provided for us.

Eastern Catholics for Renewal

"Several years ago, the Melkite Patriarch expressed the need for us to communicate the gospel in an uncomplicated way. He understood how complex our faith could be and recognized that other religions have an advantage over us in this regard. Over the years, I have thought about what he said and have tried to discover ways that we Byzantines can communicate our faith effectively. The following Gospel tract (trifold) is one of those ways...………………………"

Please Join with us in the upcoming Nativity Fast

The Nativity Fast (Philip's Fast): from November 15 to
The Feast of The Nativity of Our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ

The Fast period of the 40 days before the Great Feast of the Nativity reminds us of the necessity of wholeness of being which the life of the Kingdom demands. The Incarnation unites the Creator and His creatures in the Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and demonstrates the goodness of matter and the interconnectedness of the whole cosmos: physical, living and spiritual
The Holy Canons specify the following guidelines:
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays & Sundays to December 12:
• Abstinence of: Meat & Meat Products, Dairy Products
• No abstinence of: Fish, Shellfish, Vegetables & Vegetable Products, Olive Oil; Fruit, wine
On these days there is no regulation of the number of meals or quantity of food taken:
Wednesdays & Fridays, and all weekdays
Dec 13-24:
• Abstinence of: Meat & Meat Products, Dairy Products, fish, Olive Oil, Wine
• No abstinence of: Shellfish, Vegetables & Vegetable Products, Fruits
On Wednesdays and Fridays, food should not be eaten between meals, and meals themselves should be moderate in quantity. It is often customary to eat only one meal a day. During the Christmas Fast, from December 13 to December 24 inclusive, the Fast becomes stricter, and olive oil and wine are permitted only on Saturdays and Sundays. Fish is not permitted from the 13th to the 24th.

If, because of genuine health problems, or work situation, etc., you cannot keep the strict Fast, modify it as need be, in consultation with your Spiritual Father or Mother. Those who might not be able to fast from foods at all, should remember that there are other kinds of fasting: from sin (first of all!), but also from entertainments, etc. Additional prayer, both liturgical and private, are also appropriate during a Fast Season. Everyone can keep the season in some way. All Christians should have a Staretz (Spiritual Guide).
