Author: Archimandrite Athanasios (Mitilinaios)
Revelation - The Seven Trumpets & The Antichrist#3 (2015)This is the third volume in the series of the 104 homilies on Revelation given by one of the most prominent preachers in Greece, Archimandrite Athanasios Mitilinaios (1927-2006). It covers chapters 8-13 of the Book of the Revelation. Fr. Athanasios presents an in-depth yet easy to understand patristic interpretation of the Book of the Revelation touching upon the problems of modern day life.
"Although we may not yet be living in the actual days of the Antichrist, he might appear shortly after our generation. He might appear in fifty, a hundred or five hundred years. We don't know. The point is that his appearance can easily take place within the next thirty years; no one knows exactly when. Already, the signs have begun to increase at an accelerated rate. It makes no great difference if we fall prey to the Antichrist, or to his forerunners. If today we were to be lost to the service of his forerunners, it is the same as being lost to the Antichrist himself. We would have no salvation." (Lesson 45; March 14, 1982)
