Can you please provide a link or source for these quotes? - Serb1389. General Fora Moderator.
If you have any particular quote in mind, please let me know. In general I provide these quotes from different sources but I started to quote from a new book about his teachings. In this post
I pointed the title of the new book which translates into English roughly as "What Fr. Gabriel said". The book is printed in 2009 by the blessings of Archbishop Tadeos of Tianeti and Phshav-Khevsureti. This book does not describe any circumstances where those teachings were conveyed by the Saint. It is only collection of the teachings on may practical issues. In this thread I already quoted 3 times. They start with the word "On" which is in boldface (Like "On ...
"). I will continue (if God wills) to quote from that book with the same general format. In between I will (if God wills) post from other sources and those will have some context with it, like I did last several times. Many of the stories are repeated in several books on Father Gabriel. There are several book on him in Georgian since he is Great Saint not just saint. They called him "The living Gospel of 20th century".
Here's another good (practical) teaching.On UFOs, Humanoids and Being from other planets
In reality no UFOs, Humanoids or Extraterrestrials exist. They are another temptation of evil souls - devils.
Out of 666 snares of evil, laid for entrapment of humankind all over the world, it is one of the worst. The purpose is only one: During last times humankind burdened with sins Instead of kneeling before God and asking help and hoping only in him will hope in illusionary extraterrestrials, so called humanoids, and will expect help from them.
Hidden evil souls can perform many pseudo-miracles. For a faithless person however educated he could be it will be impossible to not believe in the reality of something the he can see with his eyes and feel with his hands.
In reality hidden evil souls - devils - by the power of suggestion can appear in any form and any color before a man and converse with him.
There is one Patristic story. A new member of a monastery was not in complete obedience with his spiritual father. He would often leave his monastery without his Father's blessing. One day a devil appeared before him as a very beautiful woman. That happened in a woods. The novice (see below) could not resist temptation and since that day he would often visit the woman and live with her, in reality he was leaving with devil. But the novice would see her body as completely real.
Evil souls can also physically affect environment, for example they can leave tracks, liquid or hard substances in an environment and so on.
Many Holy Fathers prophesied that "during last days there will be 'miracles' from the sky and there will be worldwide apostasy". UFOs, extraterrestrials and humanoids are the biggest "miracles" from the sky. Indeed their deceptive and illusionary contacts with particular persons (through "curing" them or affect them otherwise) do serve the purpose of apostasy and separation of men from God.
P.S. In fact Georgian word for novice is "m-o-r-ch-i-l-i" which means somebody who obeys. Same root is in Russian words "p-o-s-l-u-sh-n-i-k".
P.P.S. In this post
I planned to refer to notes (1 and 2) but forgot to write notes. So I'm adding those little notes here. 1) Igumenia is basically female Igumen (Or female "head-nun" of female monastery. I apologize if I put this info as unnecessary. I just don't know if there's such a word in English language. I do know though "Igumen" is known word; 2) Monastery of Samtavro
is the monastery where father Gabriel was Igumen and schemarchimandrit. This is where Fr. Gabriel is burried. It is a female monastery. If God wills I'll tell later about this monastery which is very important monastery (important Holy Relics are saved here).
