We live in stark times when the miracles and power of old stirs.
We are certainly beginning to experience days of miracles and wonders. There was a time when people might have even questioned the stories they heard of miracles of old, and say to themselves, “could such things really have happened?” But now it is hard to deny that the world grows starker, the choice between good and evil more clear with each passing day. And it can be said that those who take time out of their busy lives to come and persecute the Children of God while they pray, that for some of them, final judgment will not be put off to some distant time, but that their Day of Reckoning is upon them. Like the evil thief who mocked Christ even as they were dying together in crucifixion, these enemies of God blasphemed the Holy Things, and found out.
Although we cannot independently confirm these stories of Divine Justice, they are making big waves on Russian internet circles, and the wider world deserves to be aware of them as well. Here are three examples of modern day Ananias and Sapphira stories to call us to repentance and show the glory and power of God. Machine translation was used so please forgive any errors. God will not be mocked.

Satanists in Ukraine are Dying of Fear
There is such a widespread formula: once – randomness, two-coincidence, three-system. I am not one of those who, even in the chirping of sparrows, see the providence of God and recognize the rumble of the chariot of Elijah the prophet in the rumble of thunder. But the series of deaths in Ukraine of people involved in attacks on the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church, whether you like it or not, leads to quite definite thoughts.
Something completely Gogol-like is happening in those parts. "Countdown of the Dead" was opened by a white-haired idiot who rode a goat around the singing Kiev-Pechersk Lavra of Ekaterina Yershova, who was praying on her knees in the midst of a raging crowd of schismatics, Nazis and other green youth. In a short time, this hornless imp found himself in an ambulance with no signs of life. Some sources report that he was a veteran of the ATO, which there are some doubts due to the age of the character. Pumped out an old fool or so died ingloriously – no data available.
In principle, it is very difficult to work with information from the adjacent territory. There are virtually no clear channels for rechecking. Official data from there has garbage value. The rest is mostly rumors laced with propaganda and misinformation.
For example, the second case of the instantaneous "punishment of heaven" is generally very distorted, and it is not possible to understand which option is more truthful. Exactly the following is known. On April 8, 2023, on Lazarus Saturday, the Nazis and schismatics of the OCU stormed the church of the canonical UOC (Ukrainian Orthodox Church) in honor of the Nativity of the Most Holy Theotokos in the village of Lipovets in the Obukhovsky (formerly Kagarlyk) district of the Kiev region. During the forcible seizure of the church, one of the schismatic activists suddenly died.
The rector of the church, Archpriest Vasily, said that the attackers knocked him to the ground and "dragged him by the chain on which the Orthodox cross hung." They demanded from him that he no longer hold divine services and go to live somewhere else. "The police officers who were on the scene did not prevent the robbery," the priest said. During the attack, one of the invaders began shouting threats that "he would hang everyone", and then tore off the cross from priest Andrey Olenin and threw it to the ground. In the next instant, the schismatic himself fell to the asphalt, writhed in convulsions, and soon gave an oak tree, no matter how hard his comrades in the den tried to bring him to his senses.
Discrepancies in the sources are about the identity of the person who received "instant karma". The seizure was organized by the former head of the Kagarlyk district, currently deputy mayor of the city of Kagarlyk Ivan Semtsov, together with the headman of the village of Lipovets Vasily Tyslenko. According to some sources, Ivan Semtsov went to a meeting with the Creator on an early trial. According to others – an activist named Natykach, and Semtsov himself continues his activities and has not repented at all.
In any case, the portraits of both gentlemen are quite remarkable, no matter which of them was the hero of the news. Ivan Semtsov in Soviet times built a party career and was even an instructor of the organizing department of the district committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine, and in 2010 he was elected a deputy of the district Council from the" Party of Regions " of Yanukovych, which was banned in Nezalezhnaya as pro-Russian.
That is, this is Judas with an impressive experience. Less is known about Vladimir Natykach, but he was also a communist at one time, and then "saw the light" and went to the Nazis. Of course, this is not about the Communists finding a new way to fight the church, but about the fact that the many-faced creatures will find any shelter to suck at the trough. The same "communists" with loaves met the "cultural nation" in 1941, and turn the wheel in the other direction, faithfully waving their tails, they will rush to enroll in the Russian CAA staff. Therefore, it is necessary to track such people carefully and then meet them with the master's boot under the fifth point.
The third person killed in a car accident was a former MP, former head of the Christian Democratic Union party, 64-year-old Volodymyr Stretovich, who the day before took an active part and led the seizure of one of the churches of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Here the providence of the Lord did not manifest itself so clearly, no one is insured against an accident. But the stage of coincidences was closed by the deceased from Lipovets, so it's time to think about the consistency of such cases.
The Ukronazi attack on the UOC is unprecedented. Of the six thousand Ukrainian churches, the possessed ones have already "squeezed out" four dozen. But they are not going to stop. Metropolitan Pavel has already been placed under house arrest and banned from meeting with the congregation. Priests are dragged out of churches by armed men right during the service in front of parishioners, as was the case in the Chernivtsi region. Against the background of the persecution of Orthodoxy, the Ukrainian authorities began to call priests, seminarians and monks of the UOC to the front. In the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, as of the evening of April 10, there are already several dozen subpoenas. Even Metropolitan Clement was not spared. In the footage that appeared online, the police are trying to hand a summons to the white-haired chairman of the UOC Information and Education Department. Priests are beaten and threatened with death. And all this during Holy Orthodox Holy Week! Everything smelled clearer Bartholomewsk.
But the beneficiary of all this – the self-styled OCU-also calls itself Orthodox! But the most "clever" thing that the schismatics could come up with was to declare that from now on services will be held in the Ukrainian mov, and the cursed Moskal language should be banished from churches. And this is despite the fact that services in Orthodox churches are held not in Russian, but in the Church Slavonic language, which can be called Russian more than conditionally and which is perhaps even closer to Ukrainian. And it is difficult to accuse the UOC of being pro-Russian. Its pastors, in any case, who are in the leadership, have long defiantly distanced themselves from Russia and are quite happy to bless their followers for the war to victory.
This cannot be explained by anything other than the most real Satanism that has captured the souls of Ukrainians twisted by fear. Yes, it is precisely fear that has penetrated into the most secret corners of consciousness, which makes people fall into insanity and hysteria and commit actions that are beyond even reason and conscience, but simply common sense. How else can you explain wild "performances" like cutting fat on the Koran? A person who feels the truth and power behind him simply does not need such actions. And this desperate demonstration of the fool's alleged fearlessness, bad, screeching, similar to the hysteria of a toy terrier that splashes saliva at a surprised alabai. And at the same time, fear of what he's doing. You can call it God's punishment, of course, but I think it's the fear of what they do that breaks the hearts of old goats.
The darkest hour is before dawn. The prophecy attributed to the Donetsk elder Zosima reads: "The Kiev-Pechersk Lavra will fall. All the grace of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra will go to Optina Pustyn. I won't live to see it, but you will." And he also said that after the fall of the Lavra, exactly six months later, the reunification of Russia will begin. These words are widely known in Ukraine.
But so far, there is a feeling that in addition to "Geraniums" and "Calibers", Ukraine needs to be treated with "ammunition" of a different kind – sprinkle it with shells filled with holy water.
