The Wedding Feast of the Lamb
The Bridegroom comes to unite the Bride through a Celestial Event... On Easter Sunday!! ?
The Reopening of St. Sophia In Constantinople - The Festival of Festivals
"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was
granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints" (Revelation, Ch 19:7-8)
"And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they who are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb"(Revelation, Ch 17:9)"
"Poor ones! Raise the name of the Lord your God, sing to the great king of the ages, give Him glory, oh come, come, pious race: also you, the
inventors of the distorted heresies, come and join your own hymns to the Lord, for, He is benevolent, for, His mercy lives through the ages.
Amen, And lo, a huge crowd of a heavenly army brought the great dragon and tied him up with terrible ties and threw him in the Tartarus of the
furnace of fire." - Agathanghelos
6Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
"Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
7Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
8Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear."
9Then the angel said to me, "Write: `Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!' " And he added, "These are the true
words of God."
More Prophecies on the 8th Ecumenical Council, the Great Monarch and the Great Bishop
As mentioned in an earlier section, many Catholic prophecies speak of a return to the True Catholic Faith. Many Eastern Orthodox prophecies speak of a
return to the True Orthodox Faith.
Are the prophecies of either faith incorrect? Of course not! While there will be concessions made on all sides in returning to a unified Church based
on Apostolic Traditions, I believe that the Catholic and Orthodox prophecies speak of ‘a one,
unified catholic and apostolic church’ that is different that the present state of the Roman Church today,
but its teachings and liturgies will parallel that of the Eastern Church. Protestantism will disappear.
The hindrance of all sides for unification will be the infallibility doctrine of the Pope.
After this doctrine is removed,
the major obstruction for reunification will no longer exist, and all sides will sit down to iron out their differences.
While first comparing this prophecy to the Eastern Orthodox ones, it appears that they are conflicting.
However, upon further examination we find that they actually are in agreement with one another.
The Eastern prophecies speak of a single Patriarch after a cessation of the present state of the Papacy.
However, the Single Patriarch mentioned in the Eastern texts also may be referring to this leader.
The Catholic prophecies use the term ‘Pope’ to describe the head of the Church, while the Eastern Orthodox prophecies refer to a ‘Patriarch’
to describe the head of their church.
Both the Catholic prophecies and Orthodox prophecies speak of a unified church, a single head of the church figure, a future saintly king ruling from
Constantinople and the destruction of Rome.
It is no mistake that the Catholic Prophet St. Malachi speaks of the next Pope will be the 'Glory of the Olive Branch'.
No other Popes except Peter the Roman (Petrus Romanus) are listed. It is believed that Peter the Roman will be seated on the ecclesiastical throne
at the end of time, during a severe persecution of Christians.
Thus we can conclude that the next pope after Pope John Paul (barring an Antipope, some Catholic prophecies speak of an Anti-Pope before the Great
Bishop comes) will be the one who extends an conciliatory 'olive branch' to the Eastern Orthodox Churches.
The Eastern prophecies indicate the dismissal of the Papal Infallibility doctrine, the spreading of Eastern Christian Theology throughout the West,
and a Single Patriarch presiding over the entire European Continent.
The Western Catholic prophecies speak of a Great Pope, under protection of the angels, who will unite the Eastern and Western Churches.
Are these two distinct people playing a separate role?
Or ARE THEY IN FACT THE SAME PERSON!!!
Both the Eastern and Western prophecies are described as being guided by Angels. Both the Eastern and Western prophecies speak of a future
king/pastor who will be revealed through a celestial prodigy in the heavens.
I may be making incorrect assumptions with regards to the process of Unification, however, I provide these prophetic clips to the reader to aid in
their research and to draw their own conclusions.
St. Nelios the Myrrh-Gusher (Died 1592)
(He lived in the village of St Peter in Peloponnesus, Greece)
"… During that time the eighth and last Ecumenic Synod will take place, which will pacify the contentions of the Heretics, it will separate the
wheat from the chaff, and the right doctrine from the false doctrine, and for the short length of fifty years there will be peace upon the earth.
Afterwards they will turn again towards evil and they will go to their perdition."
Father Laurence Ricci (Died 1775)
"(…) At a gathering of men noted for piety and wisdom, the (the Great Monarch) will, with the aid of the Pope, introduce new rules, and ban the
spirit of confusion. Everywhere there will be one fold and one shepherd."
This prophecy appears to refer to the gathering of the 8th Ecumenical Council.
Vernerable Barholomer Holzhauser (died 1658) – 
"… On account of a terrible war Germany will wail, France will be the cause of all of the woe, Germany will be miserably wounded, all will be
impoverished. England shall suffer much.
The King shall be killed. After desolation has reached it’s peak in England peace will be restored and England will return to the Catholic faith
with greater fervor than ever before.
When everything has been ruined by war; when Catholics are hard pressed by traitorous co-religionists and heretics; when the Church and her servants
are denied their rights, the monarchies have been abolished and their rulers murdered… then the Hand of Almighty God will work a marvelous change,
something apparently impossible according to human understanding.
…The sixth period of the Church will begin with a powerful Monarch and the Holy Pontiff, (…) and it will last until the revelation of Antichrist.
All nations will become Catholic. Vocations will be abundant as never before, and all men will seek only the Kingdom of God and His justice. (…)
They will live under the protection of the Great Monarch and his successors. (…)
The powerful Monarch, who will be sent by God, will uproot all republics. He will submit everything to his authority and he will show great zeal for
the true Church of Christ. The empire of the Mohammedans will be broken up, and this Monarch will reign in the East as well as in the West.
All nations will come to worship God in the true Catholic(Universal) and Roman faith. There will be many Saints and Doctors on earth. Peace will
reign over the whole earth because God will bind Satan for a number of years until the days of the Son of Perdition.
No one will be able to pervert the word of God since, during the sixth period, there will be an ecumenical council which will be the greatest of all
councils. By the grace of God, by the power of the Great Monarch, by the authority of the Holy Pontiff, and by the union of all the most devout
princes, atheism and every heresy will be banished from the earth.
The Council will define the true sense of Holy Scripture, and this will be believed and accepted by everyone. (…)"
St. Tarasius was born in Constantinople of noble parents and became a statesman who commanded a high religious learning. Only a layman, he was elected
by the people and bishops to the Patriarchal throne in Constantinople in 784 A.D. He convened the Ecumenical Council for the restoration of the icons
in 787 A.D.
(…) Following that, a great civil war will break out and the entire faithless nation will be destroyed; and then will rise a Holy King whose name
begins with an I (Iota) and ends with a S (Sigma)"
Through other prophecies, we can clearly make the statement that the future king will be named John (in Greek, John is spelled Iannis), and he will be
from royal descent.
John of Vatiguero (13th Century)
" (…) Spoliation, devastation and pillage of that most famous city, which is the capitol and mistress of the whole kingdom of France, will take
place when the Church and world will be grievously troubled: The Pope will change his residence; the Church will not be defended for the duration of
25 months, and more, because during all this time there will be no Pope, no Emperor of Rome and no ruler in France.
Afterwards a young captive prince shall recover the crown of the Lilies and shall extend his dominion over all the universe. Once established he
shall destroy the Sons of Brutus and their Isle so that their memory shall pass into everlasting forgetfulness.
After many tribulations a Pope will be elected out of those who escape persecution. He, by his sanctity, will reform the clergy and the whole world
will venerate them for their virtue and perfection. He will travel barefoot and be devoid of fear. Almost al unbelievers and the Jews will be
converted and there will be one law, one faith, one baptism, one life. All people will love one another and peace will last a long time."
Brother John of the Cleft Rock (Catholic Monk) – given in 1340 
"… The White Eagle by order of the Archangel Michael, will drive the crescent from Europe where none but Christians will remain – he himself will
rule from Constantinople.
An era of peace and prosperity will begin for the world. There will no longer be Protestants or Schismatics: The Lamb will reign and the bliss of the
human race will begin.
Happy will they be who have escaped the perils of that terrible time, for they can taste it’s fruit through the reign of the Holy Ghost and the
sanctification of mankind, which can be accomplished only after the defeat of the Black Eagle."
Excerpts from the Visions of General John Makriyannis
(from his book titled Visions and Wonders, 1983)Pages 205-206) 
(…) Then the Lord God spoke and said: and the entire family of the Western nations should abandon their idea and their demands at the expense of
This is a new edifice, it is My wish and the wish of those within My Kingdom that they (the Greeks) will receive again their glory of the past; I was
the One Who took that glory away from them, I Am the One Who gives it back to them; no nation among you should ever raise that claim again,
not even Russia,
herself; whoever raises such a claim will have to face My wrath, not only he, himself, but also all those who may wish to run to his assistance; this
realm will be the domain of My Only-Begotten Son,
this will become My domain also,
and herewith I appoint as My deputy the man named after John the Baptist,
and I bequeath the realm to him and his offspring and the offspring of his offspring through the ages.
This is My wish and this is My pleasure.
You, king John, you are faithful to Me and to My kingdom, let your issue follow your own example; you and your progeny are going to move your
residence into the Palace of Constantine, and nowhere else. (…)
