And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

The right decision

One of the strongest (and last resort) of the papists is to extol Mary for the right decision, for her ACCEPTING the message of the angel. Unfortunately this is what the teaching of free will leads to, when brought to its logical conclusion. Bear in mind that the only absolutely free human decision ever made that pertains to God's will is Jesus' approval and submission under the will of God. Jesus didn't need grace, for he was the grace of God itself. Whereas humans can't help grace or willingly receive grace at the beginning, for they are of the flesh. Nowhere in the Bible are we told that grace is involved in a decision making process, it is always a "once done is done" thing.  When Catholics speak of Mary, they always talk about grace, but in the end the determining (and which makes her praise-worthy) factor is her decision. They are directly saying that if Mary said "NO", there would be no Savior. The ONLY reason the Roman Catholic Church teaches something about grace is that if she was fully pelagian, noone would have need of her "grace-giving" sacraments.

"It was not easy to respond with a yes to the angel's announcement."

Russian anabaptist lies concerning bulgaria

EDIT: I believe much can be learned about martyrdom and suffering from the Russian underground christians. HOWEVER, please read everything with a discerning mind. Not all of the "martyrs" and "confessors" in this book are sound, biblical christians, some are cultic, others are schismatics from the EOC, yet others are prominent EO priests and philosophers!!! The anabaptists of today are very ecumenical, like the modern "waldenses". You must not despise the western doctrinal foothold, but you must reject the western comfort and self-servingness. God bless all who sincerely love the Lord Jesus and may all we give bold witness.



 http://www.elcristianismoprimitivo.com/the%20russians%20secret.pdf


I was surprised to find that in a popular anabaptist book Bulgaria has been left out in order that Moravia and Russia could get more attention and historical facts are manipulated to make Russia seem a counterpart to Byzantium, whereas Russia has always been the lap dog of the Byzantines. Russian revisionists and propagandists want to claim slavic culture and language for Russia. Really poor sources here, or, God forbid, the Russian co-author threw Bulgaria under the bus. There is absolutely no mention of the bogomils, either, only of "pious" orthodox priests and philosophers. Anabaptists like Moravia and Russia for obvious reasons. Their movements flourished there hundreds of years later. I'm not dishonouring the blood of countless Russian martyrs here, but the fact remains, the Russians in general have always had this deceitful face.



Long before Prince Vladimir with his seven wives and wooden idols overcame his
brother and made himself ruler of Russia in Kiev, a young man in Thessalonika
overcame himself and decided not to rule, but to serve Christ. His name was Cyril.
He spoke Greek. Like other Christians in Thessalonika Cyril kept to the way of
Christ even though many had grown careless and worldly. He prepared to serve
Christ by studying at the Imperial University at Constantinople.
In the capitol of the Byzantine Empire—a glorious city where the Emperor, the
Patriarch of the Orthodox Church, numberless merchants, prelates, and military
officials lived in splendour—Cyril felt tiny but not lost. He studied to graduate as
soon as possible and gained a commission to travel on official business to Arabic
and Khazar tribes in the east.
During his stay with the Khazars, to whom he told stories from the Bible, Cyril
learned all he could about wide steppes and forested lands to the north. He learned
about other tribes—Russian Slavs among them—who lived in settled villages,
who farmed and raised fruits, but who served wooden idols. After he came to
know some of them Cyril sensed what Christ wanted him to do.
Back in Constantinople Cyril learned that Ratislav, a leader of a Slavic tribe north
of the Danube River had called for Christian teachers. With his brother Methodius
he set out in 863 A. D. to answer that call. 
Up the rivers and through the forested wilderness where Ratislav’s people lived
(in what is now the Czech Republic) Cyril and Methodius worked their way,
learning Slavonic while teach-ing Christ.
From the beginning Cyril determined to
teach the Slavs what Christ himself taught. But a serious obstacle stood in the
way. Very few Slavs could read and write. Those who could, used a disorderly
collection of letters to portray Slavonic sounds. Cyril purposed at once to teach
them a better way.
With Methodius’ help Cyril gathered a circle of Slavic youths about him, and
began to write in charcoal, big black letters on birch bark, while making sounds. It
did not take long. The boys hurried home, thrilled with their discovery that “birch
bark speaks” and told their parents about a great teacher whom their Greek
instructors said had taught them. 
As their knowledge of Slavonic increased, Cyril and Methodius discovered that
their Greek alphabet did not have let-ters to match all its sounds. Also, writing
with crude materials did not produce nice looking Greek. But Cyril did not
despair. With the help of another Christian who came to Moravia, Clem-ent of
Ohrid, he borrowed bold, easy shapes from Hebrew and Greek and invented
others. “We can use other alphabets as a pat-tern,” he decided, “and if we find
nothing suitable we will simply have to make our own.”
That alphabet, now used by several hundred million Slavs,
is called Cyrillic andCyril did not die until he had taught people how to use it, written for them
numerous books, and overseen for them the translation of the entire Bible,
including the Apocrypha.
By the time Cyril and Methodius died a large number of Western Slavs knew of
Christ and the Scriptures. Many had gotten baptised. But few Eastern Slavs
(Russians) heard about Christ until Basil II, the “Christian” emperor of
Byzantium,asked Prince Vladimir to help him fight the Bulgars.
Russians and Byzantines, fighting together, won the battle. They celebrated their
victory and were happy together until the emperor learned what Prince Vladimir
wanted for his wage: Basil’s sister Anna in marriage.
Basil and his sister were shocked. Vladimir already had seven wives. Anna was an
educated Byzantine woman and a “Christian.” To think of her living in pagan
Russia filled them with horror. But Vladimir would not change his mind. When
Anna refused to come to Kiev, he called his troops together and over-ran the
Crimean peninsula (Byzantine territory), taking the city of Kherson (later
Sevastopol) and all its people as hostages.
Then Basil made a proposition: If Prince Vladimir and the Russians would convert
to Christianity, Anna would come. Vladimir happily agreed. 
In Byzantium, drowning thieves or apostates was not enough. “Christian”
authorities drowned people in bags with live pigs, roosters, snakes, and monkeys.
Lawbreakers paid fines by having a hand or foot cut off, or perhaps an ear.
Standard pun-ishments included the splitting of noses, the cutting out of tongues,
and setting people onto pointed stakes. 


Whole armies were regularly blinded and
castrated. In the very battle Prince Vladimir fought with the Byzantines, they took fifteen thousand young men as prisoners of war. Out of every hundred they left one with eyes to guide them home. So dreadful was the sight that when their ruler saw them come—wailing, clutching one another, and trailing blood as they stumbled along—he went into shock and died

This was NOT Vladimir, the vain drunkard, it was Bulgarian TSAR SAMUIL, who fought the Byzantines for 40 years!!!!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Kleidion



Later on the bogomils would participate in the re-establishment of the Bulgarian Tsardom with the Asenev dynasty!!!! Folks, this is why you can't trust the Russians for anything!!!!



Here and there in the Byzantine empire, often hidden but resting firm on Christ,
remnants of true faith and holiness re-mained. Here and there, especially in religious orders, honest men and women loved Christ and lived in communion with him. 



Excuse me, in religious orders? What about the thousands upon thousands of babuns/bogomils? How does this "anabaptist" writer reconcile orthodoxy and christianity so easily? Later on in the book he gives examples of russian orthodox saints and schismatic movements as christians...


They treasured the teachings of Christ and obeyed him. Speaking and
reading Greek, they still used early Christian writings. They sang early Christian
songs. Even in Russia, where missionaries had come to Greek colonies along the
Black Sea (perhaps already in Paul’s time) some knew there was more to
Christianity than what Prince Vladimir had found.

The sarcophagus (spit of Satan) on historical anabaptism

 IN THE SAME VEIN :


http://jesus-partisans-balkans.blogspot.bg/2014/11/the-sarcophagus-of-paulicanism.html

The sarcophagus of paulicanism


"Bulgaria was a seat for Bogomilism, which has spread through the Western balkans in entire Europe as far as  Italy and France and has given a push to the powerful mystical currents of the Cathars, Albigenses, and has influenced the Templar order, Masonry, even today's para-mason organizations"

bogomil mafia bogomil communism bogomil terrorism bogomil aliens(?)


 The magazine is actually well written, certainly at a higher standard than most conspiracy literature and is quite long running. The contents are a mix of anti-british and anti-slavic propaganda. Anyway, the interesting part (article) is in the open and uncompromising slander against the religious history of Bulgaria, in an effort to link the bogomils with the attack on John Paul II, with some discussion of gnosticism in there. Anyway, this is the article with an accent on the link between the "gnostic" bogomils and the later communist government and agencies of bulgaria, participating in international drug and arms trade.
You can see how the Vatican establishment still hates the bogomils and their offspring - the albigenses, cathari and patareni, by making them look like heretics through various lay gnostic and occult organizations who claim them as forefathers , so that Rome can stamp them as heretics.
 


===============================




http://gameo.org/index.php?title=Keller,_Ludwig_(1849-1915)


Keller, Ludwig (1849-1915)


Ludwig Keller, born 28 March 1849 at Fritzlar, Germany, died 9 March 1915 in Berlin, attended school at Rinteln, studied classical philology at the universities of Leipzig and Marburg, and then specialized in archives. In 1874 he began his work in archives for Prussia. Until 1895 he was state archivist in Münster. Intensive study of the archives here led to the publication in 1885-1887 of Die Gegenreformation in Westfalen und dem Niederrhein (see also his articles, "Zur Geschichte der Wiedertäufer nach dem Untergang des Münsterischen Königreichs," Westdeutsche Zeitschrift 1, 1882, 429-468; and "Zur Kirchengeschichte Nordwestdeutschlands im 16. Jahrhundert," in Zeitschrift des bergischen Geschichtsvereins XV, 1879, 106-142) and to his realization that the religious brotherhoods outside the church organizations had been given a completely false evaluation in traditional presentations of church history.

In succession Keller published his epoch-making writings, vindicating Anabaptism, and giving the initial impetus to an entirely new judgment and to most zealous inquiries into this religious movement. In 1880 his Geschichte der Wiedertäufer und ihres Reiches zu Münster appeared; in 1882, Ein Apostel der Wiedertäufer (Hans Denck); in 1885, Die Reformation und die älteren Reformparteien; in 1886, Die Waldenser und die deutschen Bibelübersetzungen; in 1887, Zur Geschichte der altevangelischen Gemeinden (a lecture given in Berlin on 20 April 1887); in 1888, Johann von Staupitz und die Anfänge der Reformation. In addition to these he wrote a series of articles for the Mennonitische Blätter, 1883, 1885-1890; for the Gemeindeblatt, 1885-1889; and in the Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie.

He was an ardent exponent of the idea that there was a direct connection between the Waldenses and the Anabaptists (Gemeindeblatt der Mennoniten, 1886, 70), and that their principles, doctrines, and institutions continued to live in the Christian church from its beginnings through the centuries in brotherhoods which he named "altevangelische Brüdergemeinden"  (see also Mennonitische. Blätter, 1890, 113; Gemeindeblatt, 1890, 85).

Note- Included in his research and continuity of anabaptists are cathari, patareni, bogomils etc. The guy was a historian at secret and obscure archives. He KNEW the truth. He was killed/replaced or simply persuaded into freemasonry shortly after his publications against the state churches AND the counter-reformation. This was, of course, simply a move by Rome to throw excrement on all his religious research and bury the historical truth.


Keller was violently attacked. Nevertheless he continued undismayed on his way, which led him to a far-reaching syncretism. He had a vision of an ideal Christian brotherhood of humanity above the dogmatic ecclesiastical or materialistic, naturalistic view of the world. To bring about this brotherhood he won friends for it among the Baptists and Mennonites and other extra-church groups, including the Free Masons. On 10 October 1892 he instigated the organization of the Comenius-Gesellschaft, which published the Monatshefte der Comenius-Gesellschaft; in 1895 a pedagogical supplement was added, called Comeniusblätter  für Volkserziehung. The former included a series of valuable informative articles and treatises from the past and present of Anabaptism (e.g., Monatshefte, 1897, 131-176, "Grundfragen der Reformationsgeschichte"; 1912, 115, "Zwei Jubiläen. Ein Beitrag zur religiösen  Zeitgeschichte").

In 1897 Keller became a Mason. But his hope of finding in this organization fighting allies for his ideas was not fulfilled. Nevertheless he remained faithful to it. His prize-winning book, Die geistigen Grundlagen der Freimaurerei und das öffentliche Leben (1911), and Die Freimaurerei (1914) in the Teubner Collection, Aus Natur und Geisteswelt, were unusually successful.

The three Greek brethren




It is remarkable(or, worth noting) that the one preserved bogomil gospel, despite being written in 1404, contains very old language forms, which shows that the bogomils copied very old manuscripts


 Irecek - History of the Bulgarians     p 205.



 Anabaptist (Moravian/Czech) connections to Greek bogomil left-overs in the 16th century.


http://www.gameo.org/index.php?title=Thessaloniki_(Central_Macedonia,_Greece)




(b) Another event involving these two groups ca. 1550 is related in the Martyrs' Mirror (D 400-402, E 365-367) on the basis of an old Dutch booklet called Het Brilleken (1630). Three "Greek Brethren" had undertaken the long journey from Thessalonica to Moravia (Nikolsburg and Pausram,) to inquire about these spiritually kindred Brethren. The Hutterite communal life did not, however, appeal to them. They went to the Swiss Brethren, likewise at Pausram, whose life and thinking they liked extremely well. Conversation was carried on in the Latin language. The account of their faith given by the "Greek Brethren" was then written down in the form of a "Confession." This document was carefully preserved (in German) and was copied a number of times by later Mennonites (a copy in Mennonite Historical Library, Goshen, IN). This document shows, however, that the visitors came not from Thessalonica but from Larissa in Thessaly, some 120 miles to the south of Thessalonica. When the three Greeks left, one of them, a tailor, left his shears with the Swiss Brethren as a souvenir. From the records it appears unlikely that the Greeks went to other places; Mehrning in 1646 claimed (on hearsay only) that they went as far as the Netherlands.


The character of the Greek visitors is not easy to determine. Their Confession sounds like a Swiss Brethren confession. The most likely conjecture is that they were Greek-Slavic Bogomiles. They claimed to have manuscripts from the time of the apostles, but very likely these documents were of more recent origin (though centuries old, written in Old Slavonic.)

Note - They were either slavs or Greeks by ethnicity, but if their religious origin was the Greek Orthodox or some kind of schismatics, they wouldn't have used slavonic at all or approached the slavic moravian/Swiss brethren.  ( Regarding the claim that they have Paul's authentic letter -They either made the apostolic claim with the documents in greek or had slavonic documents and didn't make that claim, for they couldn't claim apostle-era documents with slavonic, the language was created in the 9th century.) Greeks who love slavs are a rare breed.  Bulgaria and the Byzantine empire were practically one and the same in terms of politics and religion (and even mixed population) in the last couple of centuries before the Ottoman invasion, but the Greek clergy has always been hostile to slavs and the Greek nationalists have traditionally abhorred everything slavic. The bogomils were found in great numbers throughout the Byzantine empire and even helped Bulgarian Tzars against both Greeks and Latins, as is the case with Philippopolis/Plovdiv  - the bogomils rose against the Latins in the city and delivered it to Kaloyan. The Swiss/Moravian brethren were trinitarian and orthodox and the reformation couldn't have possibly reached southern Greece in the mid 16th century. From this it is easy to conclude that at least the later bogomils were orthodox in the chief christian doctrines baptised adults.There is also an albigense(southern french) - english anabaptist connection, which I am yet to research.


Nothing positive is known about the source of their information about the Anabaptists. The claim of Het Brilleken that in the 1530's the Turks had taken an Anabaptist as a prisoner from Moravia to Thessalonica where he spread the news of his Anabaptist church must be taken with much reservation. The Turks did not invade Moravia at that time. The visit of 1550 did not lead to any further contacts. The Ausbund hymn, "O Herr, thue auf die Lefzen mein," seems to be based on the story in the Martyrs' Mirror, having been composed sometime before 1695. Unfortunately it is marred by many serious inaccuracies and should not be used as an historical source.

Catherine of Sienna - out of the dragon's mouth

 The 150 year period between 1380 and 1530 was the time when the papal power was shaking the most. The western schism, the lollards, hussites, reformers, the printing press and the subsequent uncovering of papal crimes and errors by scholars of every walk were seriously threatening the beast. Then came the counter-reformation and the wound has been healing with the "hospital discharge" coming soon as we mentioned. If there was a time when it was crystal clear that the pope was not to be worshipped, it was this. Catherine of Sienna was active in the 1370s, almost in the middle of the 1260 year papal reign. (~800-20??).


Saint Catherine of Sienna: "Even if the Pope were the Devil incarnate...."




Catherine set high standards – for herself, for her friends, for priests and prelates, and especially for the Holy Father. Again and again she urged the popes, first Gregory XI and later Urban VI, to act like Christ: manly, forgiving, honest, loving. Even if a pope did not act like “sweet Christ on earth,” Catherine believed that the faithful should treat him with the respect and obedience they would show to Jesus Himself. “Even if he were an incarnate devil, we ought not to raise up our heads against him – but calmly lie down to rest on his bosom.”
She wrote to the Florentines, who were rebelling against Pope Gregory XI: “He who rebels against our Father, Christ on earth, is condemned to death, for that which we do to him, we do to Christ in heaven – we honor Christ if we honor the pope, we dishonor Christ if we dishonor the pope… I tell you that God will and has so commanded that even if the priests and the pastors of the Church and Christ on earth were incarnate devils, it is seemly that we are obedient and subject to them, not for their sake, but for the sake of God, out of obedience to Him, for He wills that we should act thus.
“Know that the son is never in the right against the father, even if the father is ever so evil and unjust, for so great is the good which he has received from the father, that is, life itself, that he can never repay him for it. And we have received the life of grace from the Church, which is so great a benefit, that we can never, by any kind of homage or gratitude, pay the debt we owe.”

"Even if the Pope were Satan incarnate, we ought not to raise up our heads against him, but calmly lie down to rest on his bosom."



 St. Catherine of Siena, SCS, p. 201-202, p. 222, (quoted in Apostolic Digest, by Michael Malone, Book 5: “The Book of Obedience”, Chapter 1: “There is No Salvation Without Personal Submission to the Pope”)
 http://indefenceoftheholyfather.blogspot.bg/2013/12/saint-catherine-of-sienna-even-if-pope.html......]




 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever. And they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Revelation 14:11




Pulpit Commentary Rev 14:11

Verse 11. - And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever. Compare the wording of the passages quoted above on ver. 10, especially Isaiah 34:9, 10, "The smoke thereof shall go up forever." This statement of the eternity of punishment is also in agreement with Luke 16:26 and Mark 9:44. And they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. "No rest," in contrast with the blessed rest of the saints (ver. 13). Wordsworth says, "Οἱ προσκυνοῦντες τὸ θηρίον is a stronger expression than 'those who worship the beast;' it means those whose distinguishing characteristic is that they are worshipping the beast, and persist in worshipping him, even to the end. This characteristic is so strongly marked that they are here represented as keeping it even after their death." (On the "mark," see on Revelation 13:16-18.)





Like a wounded beast - part 1





Unfortunately, as far as i can see, arabs and turks are irredeemable and will cause  (through the greatest hater of them) their own destruction. They are so aggressive by nature, that with the snap of a finger, they will rush headlong against the red cape. No doubt Satan's two pillars of lies and murder will clash once again. Satan's kingdom is invisible and indivisible, so there is no real division when two members collide, theres only the visible manifestation of its governing principle - hatred.  The nation of the wild ass will be once again thrown against apostate christianity. Truly a people made to destroy and to be destroyed, who regard no life, even their own! However, this time the tide be presumably orchestrated by the antichrist, who, in his folly, will attempt to mimic God with the plagues of Rev 9, punishing Europe for its NON-idolatry and NON-subservience to the Roman Catholic Church instead. A sort of a reversal of what God did back then. Futurism comes very handy in this and the historical interpretation of Revelation will simply be moved forward to the future.

The beast, the papacy, wants his wound from the heavy sword of the word healed, but at the same time he can't identify itself as the beast, so he will inflict on himself a seemingly deadly (but more superficial) wound, by the hand of a barbaric and, at least on the surface, more Christless beast, to make the world identify him as the lamb and re-establish him without suspicion. Hence the false prophet, historically the monk - preachers, culminating in the future preaching of the papacy, will be more lamb-like than ever.


And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. Rev 13:3



"and all the earth wondered after the beast) that is, went after the beast with admiration. An abbreviated expression, as Acts 15:23, writing and sending by their hands. All followed the beast with their feet, or eyes, or inclination; for instance, in the Crusades. "
- Bengel on Rev 13:3

http://biblehub.com/commentaries/revelation/13-3.htm


That is, the nations will not only be amazed, but will instantly pledge allegiance to the papacy.
It is hard to say whether the "healing" comes before or after the final clash with Islam. Most probably before fighting back the church is invigorated somehow and Islam is obliterated with another "divine" intervention, following this "healing". Whether this is precipitated by a new pope, or a new order of people loyal to the pope, or a miracle, it remains to be seen.

It is reasonable that the antichrist would follow the pattern of the risen Christ and assume power over the body of all churches (as Christ assumed his power over the entire church in his exaltation Ephesians 1:22 & ). So the healing is the reunification of apostate christendom with the papacy at its head (literally).

Ruminations on the fate of my land #1




Thus far I have always looked upon the destiny of Bulgaria as an unjust revenge of the papacy on the middle age hub of European evangelism, the balkan beacon of light. Now, after I've begun work on the book of Revelation, my perspective has shifted - the poverty, the despair, the great dishonour, the horrible atheism (but take a glimse at those most atheist states of Europe today - Netherlands, Germany, Britain, Czechia, Bulgaria, are these not the historical and proper centers of biblical christianity for the last millennia?) and above all, the Ottoman captivity, are a just reward for the apostasy of the land and the persecution of the remnant. Indeed, it was not long after Ivan Aleksander, one of the worst Tsars and persecutor of Bogomils that we lost our land and independence to the Ottoman Turks. The era, the fourteenth-fifteenth century, marked the epochal exodus of learning and christianity from the east to the west and north. Byzantium, which was already decadent beyond belief, consumed by intrigue, bribery, infidelity,  along with the equally corrupted and dissolved Bulgaria and the Balkans, fell into darkness and lost all its man and brainpower, along with the gospel . It is precisely because God had showed so much favor to this land, that the punishment was so severe and prolongued. As God unleashed the Assyrian (Isaiah 11), and the Babylonian (book of Habakkuk) agains Israel now the Antichrist and his fellow Turk were loose to drop the axe on the lands, which were ever against them. It is worth mentioning that with the exception of two Tsars, and that for a short time, all Bulgarian rulers maintained relative religious freedom, even under the Byzantine persecutions, tolerating the powerful and numerous party of the bogomils and allowing free movement and distribution of biblical literature, when the west was illiterate and engulfed in ignorance. This undoubtedly infuriated the popes, who were at the same time constanstly hoping to use Bulgaria as leverage against Byzantium. The pope even sent the Hungarians on a special crusade one time, to destroy bogomilism, employing 2000 franciscan preachers. In any case, the only Tsars to take heavy-handed measures against heresy were Boril, at the time of the Albigensian crusades, and Ivan Aleksandar. But it was not these persecutions alone that sealed the fate of the land. Bulgaria never really transformed into an evangelical country, the people of the balkans, after thousands of sermons, never repented and superstition, greed, idolatry and servitude to everything Byzantine had taken root on the eve of the 14th century. (this decadence and return to paganry was properly the start of satanic humanism, which also followed the exodus to the west).


Revelation
1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 
2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 
4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

 The eastern locusts are the Saracens, and who are chiefly designed; and who were to harass and distress the eastern empire, and prepare for its ruin, which is brought on under the next trumpet by the Turks. These are fitly signified by locusts, because the locusts generally come out of the eastern parts: it was an east wind which brought the plague of locusts into Egypt, Exodus 10:13; and the children of the east, the Arabians, are compared to grasshoppers, or locusts, in Judges 7:12; and one of the names of a locust is "Arbeh", not much unlike in sound to an Arab. To which may be added, that it is a tradition of the Arabians, that there fell locusts into the hands of Mahomet, on whose backs and wings were written these words; "we are the army of the most high God; we are the ninety and nine eggs, and if the hundred should be made perfect, we should consume the whole world, and whatever is in it.''
And it was a law established by Mahomet, ye shall not kill the locusts, for they are the army of the most high God; and the Mahometans fancy that the locusts were made of the same clay as Adam was: and besides the tradition before mentioned, they say, that as Mahomet sat at table a locust fell, with these words on its back and wings;
"I am God, neither is there any Lord of the locusts besides me, who feed them; and when I please I send them to be food to the people, and when I please I send them to be a scourge unto them;''
hence his Saracens may well go by this name. Now these Saracens sprung up in the times of antichristian darkness, both Papal and Mahometan, and may be said to come out of the smoke of the bottomless pit; and the religion of Mahomet, which they embraced, was no other; and like locusts they were innumerable, they went in troops and bands, as locusts do, Proverbs 30:27; pillaging and ravaging all they could and their sudden and frequent incursions, the desolations and ravages which they made in the eastern empire, are very aptly expressed by the running to and fro of locusts; see Isaiah 33:4.
And unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power; that is, to torment then, by striking them with their stings in their tails, Revelation 9:5. These are called "scorpions of the earth", to distinguish them from sea scorpions, which are a kind of fish: so Aristotle (d) and (e) Pliny speak of terrestrial scorpions, which are the most hurtful; these are of the serpentine kind have an innocent and harmless look, but are soon angry; have stings in their tails, which they are always striking with, that they may miss no opportunity of doing mischief, and with which they strike in an oblique way (f); and which very fitly describes the Saracens, the race of the Ishmaelites, a generation of vipers, a subtle and treacherous sort of people, very furious and wrathful, and who lived by continual robbing and plundering of others at an unawares: and this may be applied to the western locusts, the monks and friars, who are the seed of the serpent; and who by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple, have a form of godliness, and speak lies in hypocrisy, and lie in wait to deceive; and being provoked, are full of wrath and anger, and strike very hard with their anathemas and excommunications, and other sorts of punishment, which they have power to inflict.


John Gill commentary, Rev 9:3



When the Turks were plundering Macedonia Isaiah of Seres, a learned monk,  wrote that

"No cattle was left in the land anymore, nor people, nor any victuals. There was no prince, or chieftan, no savior was to be found, everything hid before the fear of the ismaelites and the heart of the brave ones turned into the weak heart of a woman.Those who miraculously survived rightfully envied the dead."

And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. Rev 9:6


It was time God's name move to the North. And so it did, moving through Czechia and reaching Britain and Germany in the most astounding way.  God raised those crude and imperfect, but strong voices in the north and rattled the serpent nests of Satan. And they were, in many ways, inheritors of the teaching of the Bogomils, the strong emphasis on the epic clash of God and Satan, neatly re-named by the slimy dragon "dualism".

Who gets to play the dragon? (Rev 20:1-2)

Next logical step in the satanic travesty/parody of the reign of our blessed Christ, who will burn these witches and gnostics in hell, is the binding of the dragon at the onset of the reign. Is Trump about to "lock"someone high-ranking, maybe Obama as the dragon?

The papacy is the antichrist



"[that day] will not come unless an apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness be revealed, the son of perdition, the adversary, who exalts himself above everything called God, or any holy thing, so that he sits in the CHURCH [ЦРКВИ БЖЙИ] of God, showing himself as God "             

From the Ostrog Bible, 1581, in slavonic


Acts 7:


"18 Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph. 

19 The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live."



 The papal system, with its animosity to marriage and God-given conception and birth (and child rearing), has proved to be the fulfillment of the Pharaonic system. But whereas Pharaoh brought the jewish nation to despair by toil of the body, the papacy completely dehumanizes the young of every nation by psychological and spiritual abuse, to the extent that they have no quarter to run, even in their heart. "Sodom and Egypt" is nowhere else but the Vatican, where pagan Egyptian artifices and homosexuals priests are at every corner and where the Lord is by them said to be crucified all the time in the mass.




 https://www.rt.com/news/379365-mass-infant-grave-ireland-catholic/


Mass infant grave found at former Catholic home for unwed mothers in Ireland 

 

‘Mother and Baby’ facilities housed women who became pregnant outside of marriage and were ostracized by Catholic society as a result. The sites were infamously cruel environments, where mothers worked tough manual labor jobs for little or no pay and only permitted to see their children for a few hours each week. The children were often adopted by other families, sometimes in other countries such as the US, without informing the mother.
Local historian Catherine Corless spent years researching the home and was instrumental in the discovery of the mass grave. “If you look at the records, babies were dying two a week, but I’m still trying to figure out how they could [put the bodies in a septic tank],” Corless told the Irish Mail in 2014. “Couldn’t they have afforded baby coffins?”

Trump inauguration - "He will not divide us"

Behold, a protesting movement against Trump. It really seems this guy is some  part of an elaborate magic ritual, or just a jab at the Lord and the Bible, a dummy for target practice, anyway, who knows what these crazy satanists believe when they set up these "kings". They openly worship him as an infant and crucified, to deceive as many as possible, but secretly hate him and manifest this malice in propping up flesh and blood dummies of his regal and heavenly aspect.



Commencing at 9am on January 20, 2017, the day of the inauguration of the 45th (9x5 theses) President of the United States, the public is invited to deliver the words "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish.

Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.

http://www.hewillnotdivide.us/



The greatest divider? The Gospel message and Jesus Christ.



Matthew 10:34 
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.


Luke 2:43
this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
 

 John 7:43
So there was a division among the people
because of him.

Donald Trump and the Book of Revelation part 2

 Trump is not "the last Trump", (a belief so absurd, it is almost laughable) neither a protector against antichrist, he is a Satanic caricature of Jesus. On the 21st of January 2017, his first day in office, Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old.



https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/01/17/donald-trump-was-asked-to-name-one-of-his-heroes-his-answer-was-very-very-strange/?utm_term=.3efe77614c3e

Donald Trump was asked to name one of his heroes. His answer was very, very strange.







So, lets break down Trump's comment. First, as is here, Trump never answers straightforwardly. He produces a stream of thought, going away from the question. This is similar to how Jesus would answer with a series of  increasingly removed thoughts, sometimes completely unrelated the original question.

Now lets compare this answer to Jesus's answers with the Pharisees in the gospel of John.


- "I've learned a lot from my father"

- for my Father is greater than I. John 14:28





- "my father was a builder  ..... I learned a lot about negotiations from my father" 

- ..the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. John 14:10



-"When I was three months into the campaign they added it up I had three months of experience and the 17 guys I was running against had 236 years, when you add 20 and 30 years...."


Why would he mention 20 and 30 years, when he just talked about hundreds of years and months? Maybe because he is referencing the 50 years that the Pharisees looked for in a person in order for him to give counsel? Three months experience versus three years of Jesus' ministry. Notice how Trump defeated the much more experienced republican politicians in the campaign struggle, much like Jesus preached as early as 12 years of age to the amazement of the teachers at the synagogue and later confounded and shamed the scribes and Pharisees without having higher learning.



-And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? John 7:15

-Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? John 8:57



-------------------------------------



 1. That Trump represents the archon might be deduced by the frequent remarks that he is childish by the media and himself:  "I've been 'a little childish'" And by the size of his fingers . . . . .


2. Trump's bright blond hair could be an allusion to the golden crowned Son of man of Revelation 14:14

3. Trump is unchanging, like Jesus


"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." Heb 13:8

"I have always been the same person-remain true to self.The media wants me to change but it would be very dishonest to supporters to do so! Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
Aug 14 "



4. Trump uses the word "win" liberally, much like Jesus speaks of "overcoming" in his admonitions in the first three chapters of revelation.


5. Trump tells it like it is, like Jesus spoke "plainly" to his followers, but the media is perplexed with his comments, like Jesus spoke to the unbelieving masses in parables.

 

6.  Trump promises to build a wall to keep all un-american people outside the US and shut the mouth of "the lying media", This is reminiscent of the new Jerusalem of Revelation 21-22, which will be free of gentiles and liars (false christians/jews). Goebels also used the term, and the Nazis set out to start a 1000 year reign.

Putin has spoken

https://www.rt.com/news/373951-putin-trump-attack-protect/

Putin: I don’t know Trump personally, have no grounds to attack or protect him

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he has no grounds to attack or protect US President-elect Donald Trump, since he does not know him personally. He also said he has no justification to apply to the Nobel Committee to seek any kind of award from Trump.

"I don't know Mr. Trump personally, I have never met him and don't know what he will do on the international arena. So I have no grounds to attack him or criticize him for anything, or protect him or whatever," Putin said.



 How about collaborating with Trump? There can be a little wolf on the other side of the ocean, can't it? Remember, folks, because of the guardian's[and all other media] indirect expose of the stupidity of the intelligence services, we are led to believe that Trump and Putin are neutral towards each other, or somewhat friendly, but nothing deeper, option 1 "Putin blackmails Trump" ->false ->option 2 "There is nothing between them". From now anyone sniffing the supposed connection would be automatically discredited and not listened to.

The triumvirate which will ignite the world

https://4threvolutionarywar.wordpress.com/2016/11/12/putin-trump-and-erdogan-will-make-the-country-great-again-alexander-dugin/

Putin, trump and Erdogan will make countries great again  Alexander Dugin

 

Alexander Dugin on the working visit to Turkey during the winning trump in the US

 

 

That day when Donald trump won a crushing victory in the US, editor in chief of Constantinople, the philosopher Alexander Dugin was in Turkey on a working visit. In particular, attended the meeting with the Prime Minister of Turkey Binali Yildirim.


The Turkish media didn’t leave a visit without attention. Major publications wrote the following: “the political Scientist Alexander Dugin said that the President of Russia Vladimir Putin is ready to expand strategic partnerships and offers a hand of friendship to Turkey.” Other Newspapers noted that in meetings attended “the special envoy of Russia, Alexander Dugin”.
In the “Our view” Dugin shared his impressions about the trip and told about how Turkey has perceived the victory of Donald trump.

Daria Platonova: News of the victory trump has overtaken You not in Russia, in Turkey. What was your first reaction? And was the reaction of the Turkish people, those who were around you?
Alexander Dugin: You know, my reaction was delight. We did everything we could to objectively reflect the electoral campaign in the United States. And I never made a secret of personal sympathy for Donald Trump. And our channel, like our President, and the Patriotic society of Russia supported trump.
We resented the lies of the world media, the globalist media propagated about this campaign. So for me it was success, I would say – a personal victory and a victory of the country. In fact, a deeper understanding still lies ahead of us. This great event is the event that changed the structure of the world.
In Turkey was really interesting: I attended the extraordinary Congress of Turkey’s ruling party, met with Prime Minister Binali Yildirim. It is very interesting that took place two congresses. One of them is the ruling party, Erdogan, where I was also invited.


D. P.: Aleksandr gelevich, moreover, that we found the photographs in Turkish publications. Suddenly we upon request “Dugin” in the Turkish media began to find hundreds of pictures with the Prime Minister. And how he reacted to the election trump?

Ad: You know, I met him before. We talked about the other symbolic event. In Turkey now there is a strengthening of the Central government of Erdogan. He, in this case, is guided by a strong leader of our country, Vladimir Putin.
And held parallel to two of the Congress. The Congress of the ruling party and the opposition Congress party, where more than two dozen members of Parliament were arrested for suspicion of involvement in terrorist activities against the Turkish state. And, these are planted deputies, came to support the representatives of Western embassies.
A Congress of the ruling, the winning party, was shy of me, and it caused a tremendous wave of publications. Because Erdogan in his desire to strengthen Turkey in the national and opposition and liberation from the West, ultimately, withdrawal from NATO arrived to support the Russian delegation, with me there were several respected and important people, in particular, Oleg Vladimirovich Lebedev of United Russia and a number of other people.
We expressed our support for the Turkish people and the Turkish state. At a time when the West has expressed support, in fact, terrorists. And now the Turkish society saw the symbolism. Why are these photos that fill the Turkish press, they filled journals and publications on all tapes.

D. P.: Aleksandr gelevich, why do you think so much attention from the Turkish media?


Ad: I Have a lot of books out there, in Turkey know me as a representative of the Patriotic in terms of Russia, often ask for analysis. So, visit one of the Russian support for the ruling party outweighed the parish of all Western embassies that supported those forces that seek to destabilize Turkey.
So the Turks perceive the power of Russia. Just one man with a beard from Russia, well-known in Turkey and a frequent visitor to this country, in order to outweigh foreign diplomats. It was very symbolic. They say: better to let Turkey be a friend, but a man like Putin, like Russian than all these dubious Western partners who do not take us into Europe and create problems for us, supporting the Kurds, and so on.
After this wave of publications, when I was out on the street just all I got out of the hotel and there was a crowd of reporters who asked me, “Won the trump, what does that mean? What we, the Turks, now?” Because, – shouted someone from the crowd – you’ve long predicted that trump would win. Here we do not believe in it, and you were right”. Apparently, looking at Constantinople, and the site “Katechon” people in Turkey are reading.

I was amazed, actually, how deeply involved the Turkish community, journalists, politicians, policy in the work that we are here, representatives of conservative ideology.

DP: Probably, special attention has been given since the coup and attempts to overthrow Erdogan’s U.S. structures.

A. D.: I was just on that day, during the coup, Turkey…
But as for trump. The Turks were absolutely not ready for it, they believed the Western media. And so this crowd of journalists greeted me in the morning, after it became known that trump won.
Of course, my message was this: look, Putin, our President, has made Russia great. Trump, by Putin, is going to make America great. Your President Erdogan, there is only one to make again the great Turkey. And, of course, neither NATO nor the orientation to the West or attempts to break into Europe, where nobody waits for you, of course, are not the way [for Turkey]. The way is the strengthening of its sovereignty and Alliance with the great Russia, which our President has done great.

The Hill: Turkey is a strategically important partner of the United States

Meanwhile, the key advisers of President-elect Donald trump to publicly acknowledge the role of Turkey for the United States and oppose granting criminal Gulen asylum.
So, in the us political newspaper The Hill, Lieutenant-General Michael Flynn says that the United States is asked to issue a Turkish preacher, organizer of the coup attempt of Fethullah Gulen in Turkey. We will remind, at the moment, Gulen lives in the United States, in Pennsylvania, where he owns a chain of private schools.

The author emphasizes that Turkey is strategically the most important partner of the United States in the middle East, as well as the main ally in the fight against terrorists “Islamic State” (banned in Russia) in Iraq and Syria. However, the Obama administration preferred to keep Erdogan in the distance.

Assessment Flynn, the reason for the disagreement between Washington and Ankara became a criminal gülen, which the PA refuses to extradite. Moreover, Lieutenant-General draws attention to the relationship with the Fund Gulen Cosmos Foundation that supports its schools, and is also the main donor Fund for Clinton. In this regard, it is not surprising that bill Clinton once described Fethullah Gulen as a friend.
So, says Flynn, the United States should not provide refuge to Fethullah Gulen and remember who their “real friends”. Foreign policy must be adjusted to recognize the Turkey as a priority.

Thus, Trump's circle is already showing the correct orientation and emphasis in foreign policy. In addition, there was a potential threefold Alliance – Putin, trump, Erdogan – in which leaders are guided by national priorities and are capable of making the country great again.

Are you kidding me? You are kdidding me!

Trump was confronted in a briefing with a dossier by the CIA, which supposedly contained information on possibility of Russian blackmail against him through sex tapes, compromates etc, which turned out to be poorly substantiated and was immediately blasted by Trump (along with the CIA) as fake. This, along Russia's denial, serves to disperse suspicions that Trump and Russia are involved in a love-hate relationship in any way.


Trump blasts intel officials: 'Are we living in Nazi Germany?'


http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/01/11/trumps-blasts-intell-officials-we-living-nazi-germany/96436992/


Whats more interesting is that the agent, who gathered the dubious info on Russian tensions with Trump, was the same guy who uncovered Russia's role in the Litvinenko hit.... The media, of course, quickly and generously supplied a biography of the MI6 agent, who was head of the bureau in Russia and, because bearing a personal grudge against Russia, was, in the mind of the reader, obviously trying to frame the Russian government at every opportunity.... So we are led to believe that Russia had no role in Litvinenko's hit! Watch how the media craftily dismantle his and the services' credibility and present Russia as innocent as well. This MI6 operative, Steele, must be a part of the greater psychodrama before the days of Litvvinenko, following orders from Moscow to suicide his credibility with this "dossier". What a dirty game of theater!

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/12/intelligence-sources-vouch-credibility-donald-trump-russia-dossier-author ]



Donald Trump dossier: intelligence sources vouch for author's credibility


Ex-MI6 officer Christopher Steele, named as writer of Donald Trump memo, is ‘highly regarded professional’



His denials – at least some of them – were emphatic, even by the standards that Donald Trump has come to be judged by. The dossier, he said, was a confection of lies; he compared it to Nazi propaganda; it was fake news spread by sick people.


At his press briefing on Wednesday, the president-elect dared the world’s media to scrutinise the 35 pages of claims, before throwing down a challenge – where’s the proof? Nobody had any. Case closed.
But in the rush to trample all over the dossier and its contents, one key question remained. Why had America’s intelligence agencies felt it necessary to provide a compendium of the claims to Barack Obama and Trump himself?

And the answer to that lies in the credibility of its apparent author, the ex-MI6 officer Christopher Steele, the quality of the sources he has, and the quality of the people who were prepared to vouch for him. In all these respects, the 53-year-old is in credit.


On Thursday night, as the former spy was in hiding, having fled his home in the south-east of England, former colleagues rallied to defend him. One described him as “very credible” – a sober, cautious and meticulous professional with a formidable record.

The former Foreign Office official, who has known Steele for 25 years and considers him a friend, said: “The idea his work is fake or a cowboy operation is false – completely untrue. Chris is an experienced and highly regarded professional. He’s not the sort of person who will simply pass on gossip.”
The official added: “If he puts something in a report, he believes there’s sufficient credibility in it for it to be worth considering. Chris is a very straight guy. He could not have survived in the job he was in if he had been prone to flights of fancy or doing things in an ill-considered way.”

That is the way the CIA and the FBI, not to mention the British government, regarded him, too. It’s not hard to see why.

A Cambridge graduate, Steele was one of the more eminent Russia specialists for the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). The Guardian understands that he focused on Soviet affairs after joining the agency, and spent two years living in Moscow in the early 1990s.
This was a period when Russia and the breakup of the eastern bloc were still the prime focus for Britain’s intelligence agencies, and a successful spell in the region was a good way to get on.
By all accounts, that’s exactly what Steele did. And his interest in Russia did not diminish as he continued to rise up the ranks, a friend and contemporary of Alex Younger – now head of MI6.


Over a career that spanned more than 20 years, Steele performed a series of roles, but always appeared to be drawn back to Russia; he was, sources say, head of MI6’s Russia desk. When the agency was plunged into panic over the poisoning of its agent Alexander Litvinenko in 2006, the then chief, Sir John Scarlett, needed a trusted senior officer to plot a way through the minefield ahead – so he turned to Steele. It was Steele, sources say, who correctly and quickly realised that Litvinenko’s death was a Russian state “hit”.
As good as he was, Steele was unlikely to get the top MI6 job, perhaps because his specialisms were not a priority in that period – Russian espionage was taking a back seat to Islamic terrorism and non-state threats. And, of course, there is money to be made in the private sector – lots of it, particularly in the past two years. He decided to quit the service in 2009.





As the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, exerted influence in all kinds of spheres, so Steele’s background made him hot property. Though he could not travel to Russia, he appears to have maintained his contacts and made new ones, using old-school techniques: going out, meeting people, shaking hands, making friends – and paying for information.


(REALLY, GUARDIAN, ARE YOU TRYING TO GIVE HIM CREDIT OR DISCREDIT HIM? MEETING PEOPLE, SHAKING HANDS???!??! NOT IN RUSSIA???!?! WHAT KIND OF TOP SPY CAN"T ENTER A COUNTRY)


With his business partner, Chris Burrows, he set up the London-based company Orbis Business Intelligence, which was busy and expanding. Their operation would have been a good choice for anyone trying to gather intelligence about Russia and Trump.
It is unlikely that Steele would have had direct contact with the unnamed Kremlin officials who allegedly gave sensitive information on the president-elect. In fact, it’s believed the former spy hasn’t been able to visit Russia for more than 20 years. Rather, Steele would have tapped up his network of sources deep inside the country, some of them dating from his time there and others cultivated later, British officials suggested.
In turn, these individuals will have had sources of their own. Steele would likely have subcontracted some of his Trump investigation to trusted intermediaries in Moscow, who will have reported back to him via secure channels.


This method of intelligence collection may explain the odd language anomaly in the Trump dossier that emerged into the public eye late on Tuesday. In a September briefing note, Steele mentions the Alpha-Group, a reference to the consortium headed by the powerful oligarch Mikhail Fridman. The more usual English spelling is Alfa.
Almost certainly, a native Russian speaker wrote the original material, correctly transliterating the Russian “f” as “ph”. It was Steele’s job to collate, evaluate and verify this material before passing it to his American client Fusion GPS, a Washington-based political research firm. The company had been hired originally by one of Trump’s early Republican opponents before the contract was taken up by senior Democrats.


The Foreign Office official who spoke to the Guardian on Thursday acknowledged that the Steele dossier was not perfect. But he pointed out that intelligence reports always came with “gradations of veracity” and included phrases such as “a high degree of probability”. “You aren’t dealing with a binary world where you can say this is true and this isn’t,” the official said.
He added: “The strongest reason for giving this report credence is that intelligence professionals in the US take it seriously. They were sufficiently persuaded by the author’s track record to find the contents worth passing to the president and president-elect.”




The CIA and FBI will have taken various factors into consideration before deciding on its credibility. They could include Trump’s public comments during the campaign, when he urged Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. The agencies may also have classified, intercepted material provided by the National Security Agency and Britain’s GCHQ.

They must, equally, have considered whether some of the claims in the report might have been part of an elaborate Russian disinformation exercise.This is unlikely. The dossier is multi-dimensional, involving many different people, and many moving parts,” the official suggested.


Sadly, it was a misinformation exercise to help Trump. 

Steele’s personal views on Russia are unlikely to be very different from those of his former employers – or from those of a former UK ambassador to Moscow, who is understood to have passed the dossier to the Republican senator John McCain, who in turn passed it to the FBI.


MI6 has been privately warning that Putin, unchallenged by the west, has grown in confidence and, of course, that the Kremlin has targeted Trump. It would be odd if it hadn’t. The consensus among British securocrats is that “Putin is a wolf … and he preys on the weakest sheep.”


How about collaborating with Trump? There can be a little wolf on the other side of the ocean, can't it? Remember, folks, because of the guardian's indirect expose of the stupidity of the intelligence services, we are led to believe that Trump and Putin are neutral towards each other, or somewhat friendly, but nothing deeper, option 1 "Putin blackmails Trump" ->false ->option 2 "There is nothing between them". From now anyone sniffing the supposed connection would be automatically discredited and not listened to.


But intelligence is not evidence, and Steele would have known, better than anyone, that the information he was gathering was not fact and could be wrong. In the smoke-and-mirrors world of counterespionage, there are few certainties.
Those caveats do not appear on the documents – but they are given by Steele as a warning to prospective new clients.


Whether he could have imagined that a summary of his work would be used in this way is a moot point; Steele did not go to ground in the weeks before Christmas as US media outlets tried to stand up some of the claims against Trump. He was in London, thinking about where to take Orbis next, eating his favourite tapas and pottering around Victoria, the home of his newly refurbished office.
From Moscow’s perspective, the report’s publication can hardly be counted as a success. As a former KGB agent, Putin understands the first rule of intelligence: that special operations should remain secret. “In the world in which Putin operates, if people can see the strings, you’ve failed,” the Foreign Office official said. “The Russians will be asking: ‘How the hell did it get out?’”

 Actually, it is a great success from Moscow's perspective, because it was ordered by Putin. And yes, secrecy is important, but more important is shouting out lies publicly.... or exposing lies directed against yourself....which you planted. We are led to believe that its not that Russia does the whole thing through the british services, but that the services failed and Moscow laughs from the other side of the street.


The spotlight is certainly not something Steele was looking for. He is mainly distrustful of the media – he chooses who to speak to, having been let down, so he has confided to friends, by reporters working for a Sunday newspaper.
After a career in MI6, anonymity is something he has prized. He once asked a journalist if he had ever heard of him. The reporter’s reply was a decisive no. Steele was relieved: “That’s the way I like it.”
Now that his cover has been blown, his next steps are uncertain. The fact that Steele is a British citizen and an outed former MI6 officer makes him relatively secure from any act of Russian revenge. At the moment, the situation may look bleak for Steele. But things can change.

 To add more spice on the drama, the reader and viewer can now imagine themselves to be a part of the spy-movie, where agents' covers are blown. Steele, to cement the role, given to him by the Kremlin, may whisper "mission aborted" and run away from an angry bear. Give me a break.

“This will eventually blow over,” Steele’s friend said. “What you are left with is a effective marketing campaign. He’s a very sober guy, but he also has a sense of humour.”
