Greece is standing its ground against the Muslim heretics. The Greek capital of Athens has refused to open any official mosque, in the desire of the Orthodox Christian population.
While Athens has about 200,000 Muslims, thankfully it has not provided the haters of Christ the liberty to have a sacrilegious mosque to pray to their blasphemous and hellish god.
The Turks are pushing the Greeks to open the Fethiye Mosque in Athens, but these Orthodox Church militants are resisting the devil, and eventually, after much fighting, will that archangel of evil flee.
The Turks, in their endeavor to pressure the Greeks, have exclaimed that as long as there is not a mosque in Athens, they will keep the Greek Orthodox school in Istanbul’s Heybeliada Island, which was closed in 1971, completely shut down.
Turkey’s Deputy Foreign Minister Metin Kulunk had this to say in regards to keeping the Christian school closed:
Have no doubt, Turkey has not taken a step to re-open Halki Seminary and it will not take a step until Greece, who did not hold up the promise it gave in Lausanne, opens the Fethiye Mosque in Athens
Moreover, the beautiful and sublime Christians supremacy which the Orthodox Church has established and is trying to maintain, is illustrated in what is happening in the Western Thrace province of Greece. In this area there are 150,000 Turkish Muslims, and regardless of their significant number the Greeks, according to the Muslims, have refused them a mosque.
But this religious struggle has a more eternal and ancient cause: the Church of Hagia Sofia. It was built by Constantine in the 4th century, and remains the holy site of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In 1453, the demonic and ravenous hordes of Turks, who were really a mixture of mongol barbarians and Islamized Europeans, charged the glorious city and sacked it. They took the Hagia Sophia, wickedly and sacrilegiously threw out all of its holy icons, and soiled it with heresy. They made it into a mosque.
The church is the sight where countless Christians were butchered mercilessly, where saints were tied with ropes like animals and brought into slavery, where women were ravished, and till this day does their blood cry out in the highest Heaven, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” (Revelation 6:10)
From the time of their martyrdom do their tears wet the earth from under the foundations of the sacred church, and so long have the careless refused them to wet the parched sands of their souls, to cultivate the vines of zealotry and the roots of righteous weeping.
The poor Christians of the East are being butchered every day, and what are Western Christians doing? Most are doing nothing, but there is a great opportunity in which you can now do something.
For centuries the Orthodox have strived to have the Hagia Sophia rightfully returned to Christian hands. The Turks currently are planning to make the holy house from a mere tourist sight to an actual official mosque.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc, just this November, referred to the church as the “Hagia Sophia Mosque” and evilly said:
We are looking at a sad Hagia Sophia, but hopefully we will see it smiling again soon
To these, the Greek foreign ministry responded:
Recurrent statements made by high ranking Turkish officials about converting Byzantine Christian churches into mosques are offending the religious feeling of millions of Christians
Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the Archbishop of Constantinople, with fiery zeal and militant spirit,declared that the Hogia Sophia needs to be an Orthodox church and that it belongs in the possession of Christians:
If it is to reopen as a house of worship, then it should open as a Christian church… It was built as a church and not a mosque
In the future, the Christians will war in a crusade against the Antichrist Ottoman Empire, and they will fight over their holy places, especially the Hagia Sophia.
The heretics have been desecrating this church for centuries, and the time is coming when the saints will drive out the thieves of the temple, so that the sanctuary will be a house of prayer, and not a spiritual brothel of thieves who rob men’s souls.
The era of glory is near, wherein the churches of God, stolen by the hands of devilish pagans, will be brought back, not by protest, but by war, by blood. The holy places of the saints will be seized as the darkness of the night is purged by the rising sun, and it will be led by that “Sun of righteousness”, Who “shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this” (Malachi 4:2,3)
The armies of saints, armed not with whips but with weapons, shall be led by Christ Who is, as St. Bernard wrote, “the Leader of knighthood himself, who, having his most sacred hands armed, not with a weapon, but with a whip which he had fashioned from lengths of cord, entered the temple, ousted the merchants, scattered the coins of the money changers, and overturned the chairs of the pigeon vendors, considering it totally unfitting to defile this house of prayer by such traffic.” (1)
This is not a war just between two armies, but between two cosmos, two kingdoms and two citizenships, the one of Heaven and the other of pure darkness and the sinister forces of the angel who was cast out of Heaven by the eternal sword of Michael and his angels.
Providence is moving the righteous into their positions of battle; the soldiers of the eternal fray are being summoned, for truly the war is not with flesh and blood, but is founded in the realm of the spiritual, which moves righteous men of the Cross to fight, and trains their hands to war, against the slaves of darkness who are pressed by the demons of Allah’s crescent.
