Russian/Greek “Orthodox” IdolatersPosted: May 28, 2017
The gaudy looking “Sitka icon” was apparently painted around 1800 in Russia and later gifted to the small St Michael’s Orthodox Cathedral in Sitka Alaska around 1850 when the state was still a Russian territory. Superstitious Greek Christians think it portrays “the Mother of God” and that it can perform miracles.
They take this thing on tours around the country in order to draw in crowds ($$$) of guillible idolaters who will actually pray to it thinking they are doing something holy.
In fact, these blasphemous nut cases have even invented an hour-long litany that they sing to it. Behold their blind madness:
Akathist Service to Our Lady of Sitka
With compassionate forethought for your Alaskan people, you have sent forth from your icon in the Cathedral of
Sitka a stream of wonders enlightening the minds and souls of those lying in ignorance of God. Granting a safe
haven and good fishing to those on the seas you protect all on their paths, and for this, in love we cry to you:
Rejoice, illumination of all men with the shining rays of your won-ders.
Rejoice, sight of the blind.
Rejoice, glory of Alas-ka.
A storm of passions and sins rages against us and we know not where to turn. It is then that the holy Mother of God
gives us her peace; and gazing at the icon she has sent us, we cry with thanksgiving to God: Alleluia.
Beset by hardships in this far northern land, we are lifted up by the faith our Father Herman instilled in us, and by
the prayers of Our Lady of Sitka we take upon ourselves, with hope and fortitude, the Cross our Lord has given to
each one of us and sing to her:
Rejoice, mother of the Most High God.
Rejoice, queen of heav-en and earth.
Rejoice, intercessor to your Son Jesus Christ for all of us.
Rejoice, protectress of those who run to you.
Rejoice, giver of what is needful to all who pray before your wonderworking i-con.
Rejoice, for you are swift to help.
Rejoice, for you pour upon us unfailing mer-cy.
Rejoice, deliverer from peril on land and sea.
Rejoice, zealous defender
of the Orthodox faithful in Amer-ica.
Your icon shines in our Cathedral like a bright star enlightening the whole land with its radiance. It guides all the
Orthodox in America gone astray on the sea of life and overwhelmed by the waves of sorrow, tribulations and
sickness, giving them peace and happiness as they take refuge in you and sing to God: Alleluia.
Who can worthily praise you and thank you for sending us your wonderworking icon? Our tongues fail before this
miracle and we beg you to help us sing to you:
Rejoice, unfailing source of ho-liness.
Rejoice, river of divine grace flowing in ma-ny streams.
Rejoice, reconciler of sin-ners with God.
Rejoice, teacher of pi-ety.
Rejoice, helper and confirmation in good works.
Rejoice, receiver of pi-ous vows.
Rejoice, destroyer of e-vil intents.
Rejoice, you who tear to pieces the snares of the en-emy.
Rejoice, zealous defender
of the Orthodox faithful in Amer-ica
To your icon we Orthodox run when about to embark on a new enterprise or to set out on a journey by sea, land or
air, offering you a prayer of thanksgiving and asking for your blessing and your help and our deliverance from
tribulation and assault; for we know you to be a strong protectress and defender, and we therefore sing to you:
Doubters and unbelievers are amazed to hear that streams of divine grace flow through your icon, while we know
that this is so with this icon of Sitka and that God’s grace will abide with it forever. Therefore, standing reverently
before it, we kiss it and venerate it as we would your very self; for the honor paid to icons passes to their prototype,
and God’s grace acts through this icon in wonders and signs for those who run to you with faith and cry to God:
Wishing to save many from the evils, afflictions and sicknesses which afflict mortal men, you have given Sitka this
holy icon before which we pray that the drowning be saved, those possessed of the devil be freed, our boats be filled
with fish and our hunting be blessed and our villages and homes be protected from flood, fire and earthquake.
Therefore, glorifying God, Who has bestowed on us such mercy, we cry to Him: Alleluia.
Wishing to give your grace to those venerating you with love, you, O Mother of God, have left in your holy icons
the power of your grace. For this same divine grace remaining with these holy icons ever bring about signs and
wonders, and by your unceasing supplications to God you give healing of body and soul to those who approach you
with faith and love and who sing to Him: Alleluia.
Clergy: Most Holy Theotokos, save us.
People: Most Holy Theotokos, save us.
It is truly meet to bless you, O Theotokos,
Ever blessed, and most pure and the Mother of our God;
More honorable than the cherubim,
and more glorious beyond compare than the seraphim,
without defilement you gave birth to God the Word.
True Theotokos we magnify you.
Deacon: Again and again on bended knees let us pray to the Most Holy Theotokos!
People: Most Holy Theotokos, save us.
Priest: O Lady, Mother of God Most High, look down upon your faithful servants praying before your holy icon and
serving your Son. Receive our humble prayer and visit us in our unworthiness. Help us to keep pure the Orthodox
Faith and to walk in the ways of our Savior, Jesus Christ. By your intercessions entreat Him to grant us health of
soul and body and the forgiveness of our sins in this life, and in the world to come, life everlasting.
Total crap. What possible excuse is there for “Christian” people to engage in this unholy garbage ?!? These are not illiterate villagers who have just recently stumbled out of paganism and don’t know any better. These are modern educated so-called “Christians” with ready access to Bibles in their own language. They have no excuse! It’s absolutely satanic – these stupid idolaters are in blatant rebellion against God.
” Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” 1 John 5:21
” Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.” 1 Corinthians 10:14
” For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” 1 Samuel 15:23
” And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.” 2 Kings 23:5
” As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee. But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.” Jeremiah 44:16-17
” And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:” Revelation 9:20
The Lord Jesus Christ rebukes the Orthodox Church through its archtype Pergamus in Revelation chapter 2:
” But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.” Revelation 2:14
The Lord next gives a similar rebuke to Thyatira, the archtype for Roman Catholicism:
“ Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” Revelation 2:20-23
The unsaved Orthodox and Catholics will be left behind to die in the tribulation because they trusted in all their idols and their man-made religion instead of in the Lord Jesus Christ.
