Unity and Orthodoxy

In searching out the true history of Christianity's past, the study of Orthodoxy and Christian Russia was inevitable after stumbling upon the truth of Byzantium and the 1000yr Kingdom (Millennial Kingdom).

I've had some pretty strong takeaways after studying the Christian East that the Christian West isn't familiar with— and they should be.

After the fall of Byzantium into the hands of the anti-Christ Pope, denominations and schisms become the norm. The problem with all the divisions and dispersions (even the earliest root existing today, Eastern/Russian Orthodoxy), is that they are looked upon as some victory for the enemy. When God said this would happen.

The Jonah prophecy explains in chapter 4 — they've all been rotted and withered from the worm and wind. What was started and flourished for a day (1000yrs) then withers in a day (1000yrs).

What's left is similar, In my understanding, to Babel's remnants after It's judgment. We each have a bit of the puzzle after being dispersed, but there exists barriers. Barriers that God has willed and only by His will and Intervention will they ever be crossed. Some In the west have the Identities or outreach down, but the Orthodox have the Septuagint and the traditional strength and unity that we lack as westerners, and Isn't as completely usurped as is Catholicism.

Satan has a Kingdom referred to as Babel/Babylon/Mystery Babylon that by the end, Is regathered and of "One-Mind" (Revelation 17:13). To which The Kingdom of Jesus is the antithesis, named Jerusalem/Zion/New Jerusalem. We are joined with Christ In his death and resurrection transforming us Into the body of Christ to where we are One-Mind — led by the Word of God when our Identity Is found In Him (Jesus).

Jonas 4 (Millennial Kingdom Prophecy)

"And the Lord God commanded a gourd, and it came up over the head of Jonas, to be a shadow over his head, to shade him from his calamities: and Jonas rejoiced with great joy for the gourd. 7 And God commanded a worm the next morning, and it smote the gourd, and it withered away. 8 And it came to pass at the rising of the sun, that God commanded a burning east wind; and the sun smote on the head of Jonas, and he fainted, and despaired of his life, and said, better for me to die than to live. 9 And God said to Jonas, Art thou very much grieved for the gourd? And he said, I am very much grieved, even to death. 10 And the Lord said, Thou hadst pity on the gourd, for which thou has not suffered, neither didst thou rear it; which came up before night, and perished before night"

–Jonas 4:6-10

That being said, just because the Kingdom is dispersed, doesn't mean the Kingdom won't be victorious in the end.

"...when the dispersion is ended they shall know all these things." —Daniel 12:7

"..on this [acknowledging Jesus is God] rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it." —Matthew 16:18

Understanding, acknowledgement, and integration of the East is our natural trajectory in reconciling the truth and regaining unity as the body of Christ, along with a more faithful Word with the Septuagint (what Jesus used).

Daniel 7 (Victory Of Jesus's Kingdom)

"17 These four beasts are four kingdoms shall rise up on the earth: 18 which shall be taken away; and the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and possess it for ever and ever." —Daniel 7:17

"I beheld, and that horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 22 until the Ancient of days came, and he gave judgment to the saints of the Most High; and the time came on, and the saints possessed the kingdom." —Daniel 7:21-22

[Explained further by "And the kingdom and the power and the greatness of the kings that are under the whole heaven were given to the saints of the Most High; and his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all powers shall serve and obey Him." —Daniel 7:27
