These things will come to pass, but it is better not to speak about them. Those of you who know the prophecies of St. Kosmas, Elder Paisios and Elder Joseph should also know that each of them warned us not to speak of them, particularly to the military forces of the West.
St. Kosmas, for instance, says: "Through three narrow passes, Kra, Krapse, and Mouzina, many armies will pass to go to the City. It would be good for women and children to go out to the mountains. They will ask you if the City is far away. You should not tell the truth, because they will do you evil. This army will not reach the City; on its way it will learn that the war has ended."
What army doesn't know the distance to it's target? St. Kosmas is not speaking here of distance, but rather, how close the City is to being captured. Those who know what the outcome will be (ie, the Greek Orthodox) should not tell them the truth, but rather, they should feign ignorance.
The war is coming. Nearly all the prophesied signs have taken place- the Euphrates, the completion of the Via Egnatia, the "Anomaly of State", the debt, the tax on "windows and chickens", the "Surfy Man" (Kassidiari), the war in Syria. Only one sign remains- the withdrawal of the embassies- and anyone with any sense who knows the prophecies also knows what to do when this sign happens. What is written is written and will come to pass. Half of humanity will be lost, and the world will be unrecognisable. This is the 'kanona" because of our sins, and even the Saints and the Theotokos cannot stop a kanona from God. But afterwards, there will be a great flowering of Orthodoxy throughout the world- if only briefly, then the great falling away and the end of time. Worrying about it is not going to change anything. We need to repent, pray, lead a sacramental life and do good works. If we can't save our bodies, at least let's try to save our souls in the coming troubles.
"ει τις αιχμαλωσιαν συναγει εις αιχμαλωσιαν υπαγει ει τις εν μαχαιρα αποκτενει δει αυτον εν μαχαιρα αποκτανθηναι ωδε εστιν η υπομονη και η πιστις των αγιων"
"Whoever is to be lead into captivity shall go into captivity; whoever is to be killed with the sword will be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the Saints."
