  • The line of division – where is it

    A lot of people ask: “What is happening in Ukraine now? What should we think about this?” But do people understand that Ukraine is situated on the line of division of the world? The huge fight happens on the Ukrainian land between past and present, between life and death, between good and evil...

    Dear brothers and sisters!

    I sincerely congratulate you with the feast of Saint Nikolaos!

    Through thousands of years grateful human memory carried along this light image of good man as an example of serving to God and people.

    To see and try, to find and awake, to change human nature into God’s nature – that was the meaning of life for Nicolas from Lycian. Later people started to call him Nikolaos the Wonderworker...

  • How to be accepted and loved by God? How to get God’s help in difficult moments of life

    “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” It mean that Jesus Christ has so much power from God that He can solve every problem, every question; He can understand every offence, He can give us a rest. He can give a decision in every difficult situation of our life, when we become confused...

  • About the prodigal son and about the “property” of every man, how to get it and to spend it

    We listened to the gospel (Luke, XV :11-32), which stated that one of the sons took some property from his father … Where did he spend that? First of all let’s become clear with the word “property”. What does every man have?...

  • About the perception of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice  and about the place, which is prepared for everyone

    Gospel of Mark, where the Lord in the third time foretold His death and resurrection, we should accept with soul and heart, not with mind. We should understand the condition of Jesus Christ at that time, because He knew beforehand that He would fulfill that difficult mission – give His life to save many people and that people...

  • About the miracle of healing form physical and spiritual blindness

    Jesus Christ can make a miracle for us and recover us from spiritual blindness. If all people in the world sincerely pray, like that blind man prayed, and ask God to open their eyes, than the world would quicker become a better place...

  • About the Holy Spirit, which lights up human hearts for the eternal life

    We came on this Earth to be in God’s truth and God’s will. We came with purpose – to raise our spirit. And we see how the nature fulfills itself with this sunny warmness, blossoms and gives fruit. And we are the same as nature. Every time when we come into the church we fulfills ourselves with God’s grace, the Holy Spirit. Then our soul grows, gives fruit...

  • About the healing of the Paralytic and about the chances of healing today

    When the Lord said to the Paralytic: “Son, your sins are forgiven.” What had happened in that very moment? God forgave his sins, which he made and the Holy Spirit settled down upon that man. And the evil spirits, which were near him and paralyzed him, left the man...

  • About the greatest Commandment of the Law and about the True Father of Jesus Christ

    In the Gospel of Matthew (Mt. XXII:35-46) the Lord showed and emphasized the main and the greatest Commandment of God – to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And we must understand it correctly. Just to know is not enough, it is important to understand it...

  • About the family tree of Jesus Christ and about preachers of God’s energy

    Today we have heard the Gospel about the family tree of Jesus Christ – Our Lord (Mathew I:1-25). I want to separate two parts here. The first is about the genealogy of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ. And the second is about the miracle of the Birth of Jesus Christ from the Holy Spirit...

  • About the eye that is the lamp of the body and about the Earth life, that is the way to the Heaven abode

    The man consists of body and soul. The main is the soul. The Lord said that the body is the Temple for the soul. He also said that if your eye (soul) is healthy, your body will be light and pure. If there are angriness, unforgiveness and envy in your soul, how can your eyes show light?...

  • About the entry of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem, about temptations and about spiritual base of the man

    Very many people believed in Jesus because He created a great miracle - brought to life of Lazarus from the dead. When we see good, such great miracle, God’s power, we are following Him. But when the other situation happens, we turn from this way and with our doings we crucify Jesus Christ...

  • About the called and the chosen for the Lord's Supper since the time of Abraham till the present day

    We heard the Gospel (Luke, XIV:16-24), which stated that one host arranged a great dinner for his friends. What did Jesus Christ mean by this dinner? Of course, he meant, above all, those Jewish priests, whom the Lord prepared since Abraham. It was, as you know, the chosen people. And the Lord did everything in order to teach these people the truth, and through them to save the world. This continued for many thousands of years. You remember Abraham, Jacob, King David, Solomon. And now the time has come when the Lord revealed to them His Son. The dinner is the knowledge of God, the truth, which God prepared for this chosen people....
