Church Tragedy in USSR, Abkhazia - First Holy Land, Nostradamus & Bible, Images of Revelation, Science & Religion.
A lot of signs testifies that all the world comes unto decisive verge – the start of Apocalipse epoch, which will embrace the life of several generations and become the transition period from usual history unto holy Millenium.
The communist revolution of 1917, but also the powerful withstanding against it, was the realisation of a huge "apocalipsic energy" of the russian people. In the book of L. Regelson "The Tragedy of the Russian Church. 1917-1953", which is published here at the first time on English, the spiritual battle is reflected, which was deployed in Russia after October revolution, the civil war and during the period of cult of Stalin. This struggle is far from completion, but in the new century it is threatening to break out with the new force and in new forms.
The spiritual history of Russia has revealed the aspiration unto realization of God's Kingdom on the Earth, which was promised by a lot of prophesies of Scirpture. This hope nourished the deepest tradition, originated from the very Adam. It received the new impulse through the reverend Sergius of Radonezh, who had proclaimed that the highest mission of Russia and together with she of all the mankind – in the achievement by man to be the Holy Trinity likeness and in overcoming "the hateful division of this world".
It becomes sharp urgent the pithy comprehension of Revelation prophecy texts, and in this connection it is necessary to consider with attention the former attempts of interpretation, including such significant and disputable as works of Nostradamus – who gave the Apocalypse explanation for our days.
The contemporary people, including a lot of Christians, with the word "Apocalypse" usually connect the pictures of horror and death. The main attention is given to actions of dark forces, such as Satan or Antichrist, and especially to their predicted short-lived triumph on the Earth.
But this outlook is extremely onesided. In spite of all dramatic features, the main contents of the coming epoch is the complete uncovering of the radiant Divine idea about the man. It becomes clear from consideration of central images of Revelation on the basis of deepest holy-fathers tradition.
Here are also situated the responses to the book of L. Regelson and I. Chvarzkia: "Abkhazia – the Land of Adam", where the new approach is suggested to such questions, as creation of Man, Atlantis, earth Paradise and Noah's Flood.
In this approach the positions of science and religion are united, so as the some important affirmations of Bible would be proved by the means of ethnographic and archeological investigations. The genuine Noah's Arc may be found namely here, meanwhile the building on Ararat is only Temple in Memory of Flood.
Religious and mythological aspects of modern quantum physics are subjected to a critical analysis.
