Prelest

I learned a good word from Lizard King today.

Prelest

Prelest (from Russian: прелесть, from Russian: лесть – cajolery (charm, seduction), Greek: πλάνη – plani), also known as: spiritual delusion, spiritual deception, delusion, illusion, – according to Holy Fathers of Orthodox Church, a false spiritual state, a spiritual illness, “a wounding of human nature by falsehood” (St. Ignatius Brianchaninov).[1] The concept of prelest should not be confused with somatic mental illness of any kind; prelest is rather a spiritual illness,[2] an illness of the soul in its personal relation to God, an illness that originates from vainglory, pride, and demonic suggestion and that is to be cured by humility and Holy Sacraments and under the guidance of the spiritual father. In the broadest sense, everyone is in prelest: everyone has some wrong thoughts and views, everyone does not fully understand the meaning of life, the degree of own sinfulness etc. When the word “prelest” is used in the narrow sense, i.e. that some particular person is in the state of prelest, that usually means that this person, initially being on the path of pious Christian life, became possessed with the strongest pride and self-conceit right up to the thought about personal sanctity. To consider oneself a saint – that is a clear prelest because the closer a man is to God, the more he sees his imperfection, and all true saints considered themselves in the feeling of the heart the greatest sinners. The state opposite to prelest is spiritual sobriety. This article is dedicated to different manifestations of prelest mostly in the “narrow” sense.

Glosoli is just the most obvious example, but Trump mania-as-religion appears to have unleashed this as a general thing.

    3By this we can be sure that we have come to know Him: if we keep His commandments. 4If anyone says, “I know Him,” but does not keep His commandments, he is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But if anyone keeps His word, the love of God has been truly perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him: 6Whoever claims to abide in Him must walk as Jesus walked’.

    4Everyone who practices sin practices lawlessness as well. Indeed, sin is lawlessness.c 5But you know that Christ appeared to take away sins, and in Him there is no sin. 6No one who remains in Him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has seen Him or known Him.

    7Little children,d let no one deceive you: The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as Christ is righteous.e 8The one who practices sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the very start. This is why the Son of God was revealed, to destroy the works of the devil.

    9Anyone born of God refuses to practice sin, because God’s seed abides in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10By this the children of God are distinguished from the children of the devil: Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother’.

    1Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father also loves those born of Him.a 2By this we know that we love the children of God: when we love God and keep His commandments. 3For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome, 4because everyone born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith’.

    8Blessed are the pure in heart,

    for they will see God.

    9Blessed are the peacemakers,

    for they will be called sons of God.

    10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,

    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven’

    11Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets before you’.

    7Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. 18For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

    19So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’

    Thank you for making me blessed with your insults. Wiki versus scripture.

      “Thank you for making me blessed with your insults. Wiki versus scripture.”

      call it internet versus Scripture, schizoid patinage where you try to skate around the Bible with such incredulous works as “12 rules for eating lobsters, taking your benzo and not shit the bed” and “goytow-50 failures for life”, no time wasted in the end if we can all agree that itz not a “savior” of any sorts-the internet and what is produced here that is. *somewhere in the background a schizoid screams, clutching his goytow and ratherily takes a dive into hellfiry rather than admitting wrong doing*

      the procrastination is over when you uninstall internetexplorer.exe

      • Aeoli Pera says:

        The idea of prelest comes from the Russian/Eastern Orthodox Church.

      • MM says:

        Drop the act Bice.

        You probably aren’t even fooling yourself, unlike the very talented self-deifier Glosoli
        (I called that one- “Oh how the glory of God reflects the glory of Glosoli!” etc.).

        There are more honest ways to sanctify death yaknow.

        As you would say; Itz over. Come home.

        Hmmm. I wonder, if I were to take a look at your life…

        is there is anything about what you actually DO in this material world of ours that makes you “christian” versus “man who has given up; man who holds bitterness towards life”?

        Or is it simply more of the same, more of what I see everywhere?…

        Whatever. You probably don’t even believe in honesty, least of all towards me.

        PS; The only person who still gives a fuck about gutow (goytow) or ‘helping retards’ is Aeoli so take it up with him, I need to eat a cheezeburger like a good goy :)

        (As laid out in goytow 101)

          Hello MM.

          Your posts stink of hatred and fear, sad to see. You cannot save yourself, bice knows this, he knows the world will burn, he speaks the gosel, he does his job, but he knows it will burn. You cannot stop the wrath of God. Your only choice is whether you get onto the winning team, or remain in willful denial of good versus evil, God versus Satan. Choose wisely (there must be a self-help book on that…oh yes, the Holy Bible).

          But you somehow know a bit of scripture, or more likely my Father, with His cool sense of humour, put it in your comment, for my amusement:

          >’You probably aren’t even fooling yourself, unlike the very talented self-deifier Glosoli
          (I called that one- “Oh how the glory of God reflects the glory of Glosoli!” etc.’).

          2 Corinthians 3:18:

          ‘And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His image with intensifying glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit’

          Cool stuff, thanks Father.

    I am requesting Glosoli to be unbanned for this post temporarily, because it mentions him and I bet he could contribute to this topic. o.o

    • glosoli says:

      Thank you Boneflour.

      • boneflour says:

        You’re welcome. In the spirit of honesty, I was betting you would contribute to the topic by exemplifying it. I hope you will forgive my jokes when you are ruling the entire globe from the Throne of God. Not all of us are as perfect as Jesus. =)

        • glosoli says:

          I genuinely hope that you, and Aeoli and Koanic are all in the kingdom of God here on earth for eternity. As I wrote on my blog, I shed bitter tears recently at the thought of Aeoli and Koanic not making it. Very sad. But if they die today, they will burn.

          Ironically you have a better chance than they do, as Jesus said ‘At that time Jesus declared, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children’.

          I was just a babe, not wise and learned, like Aeoli and Koanic (so they think), but my fear of God kept me on the narrow path, every time I was tested, I chose God over family, friends, money, and even the men who helped me get started on my journey. I would hate to see them burn in the lake of fire, it will be much more fun to mock them gently in the kingdom over dinner. I love them both, I really do, I spent my baptism week with them and it was wonderful.

          I don’t mind you joking at my expense, prelest is just a made up thing anyway, but please remain open to the truth, because shit is going to get real over the next twelve years. Soon I will reveal the day of wrath of My Father, the precise details of the mark of the beast, the enemy’s precise plan, the name of the lawless man, all of it has been revealed to me. If you Boneflour, (assuming you are still alive) when presented with the choice to take the mark of the beast, say NO, and you know that death will be the result, at that point say NO and say you are with God and His son Jesus and you trust them, and you will be in, and I will be happy for you, despite our many disagreements, I like you. The last will be first (also Jesus said that).

          If you get in, you will be perfected by me and my team of priests, and Satan won’t be around to deceive for a thousand years, so sin will quickly die off, plus, only those with faith will be resurrected anyway. Being perfect just means obeying a few laws, its not onerous, in fact its a joy, the yoke is not heavy. But it does involve some changes, like giving up pork, observing a lunar Sabbath, feast days etc. Most of the laws, such as fucking animals and your sister are not likely to apply to most people, there are not 613 laws anyway, the joos made that up. Temple laws are gone, and sin sacrifices too.

          MM seems not to understand the meaning of the word ‘holy’. Not a bright lad is he?

          Bice get yourself in the 144,000, I want you in the second Exodus, in the wilderness, your stump expertise will be very useful.

          As I have the opportunity, a quick word to Obadiah. Get a grip on yourself, stop listening to shaman that are not walking as the Lord walked, Stop messing around with esoteric nonsense, this is not a game, Within ten years Americans will be wholesale eating their kids to survive, and only the righteous will be protected. I suspect you are far from righteous, as your shemen are too. Get back on the narrow path.

          Peace be with you, Boneflour.

          • Obadiah says:

            >I suspect you are far from righteous

            I agree.

            • glosoli says:

              If you died tomorrow, your soul would go before my Father in heaven, and sit there for 7 days, beholding His glory, with the knowledge given to you at that time that this would be the last time you would see Him, because you died in your sin.

              Then your soul would see where the righteous souls rest, in peace and security, guarded by angels until the resurrection of the dead.

              Then your soul would be sent into the pits, with all the other souls who fucked up on earth:Hitler, Mao, all the Popes, Judas Iscariot, all the sodomites and murderers. And you would be with them for 1,012 years, tormenting one another.

              Then your soul would be reconnected with your body, raised up, shown by the Lord your sins as recorded in his book, and then your body would be burnt to a cinder, very painful.

              Then you would see the New Jerusalem descend from heaven, and all the saints and the elect and the angelic host would be inside it, 2200km x 2200 square kilometres, solid gold floors, and the righteous would live with God and the lamb for eternity, in the light of His glory.

              So, if I were you, I’d sort myself out, in case a bus hits you tomorrow. Stop hanging around with the deluded, the fact you can acknowledge you are not righteous means you are not suffering the 2 Thes 2 delusion yet, like Aeoli and Koanic. There is hope for you.

              You know where to find me, if you need to talk.

    • Man of Men says:

      I really have to thank BF for this as well. 10/10 job well done.

  5. glosoli says:

    I am too busy to cast even more pearls before swine. Aeoli has banned me (twice I think) and ignored a challenge to a scriptural debate and has falsely accused me publicly of being hateful and deluded (here in this post) and privately. Because I walk as the Lord Yahshua walked, and he doesn’t. The darkness hates the light.

    For those who have ears to hear the truth and eyes to see the light, keep following my blog. The first seal has yet to be broken, when it is, I will be sent out, the rider on the white horse and the whole world will know me. The enemy will try to stop me, but they won’t be able to. You will see me on the news. Maybe then ye of little faith will believe? My ministry is just getting started, a new website is to be launched soon (2 Malachi.com), details will be posted at the blog.

    Being the end times messiah is very exciting and a huge task, but the Word is flesh again, rejoice, and the Lord Yahshua giving me his throne and the ends of the earth and the nations as my inheritance, well, it’s all a lot to take in and deal with. I just wanted a quiet life, but if someone has to reign with the Lord during the Millennium, it might as well be me. I won the pre-creation lottery didn’t I?

    Repent sinners, be ye therefore perfect as my Father in heaven is perfect (Jesus said that by the way, he outranks some orthodox fakers paid by satan’s man Putin).

    • Man of Men says:

      You know, I do not often feel jealous but I downright envy you, Glosoli. No irony or joke.

      Having read your blog I can see you are a true believer in your mission and yourself.

      You have constructed a perfect second world where everything is so incredibly meaningful; not filled with the trite ‘happiness’ people think they desire, but with real terror and horror and triumph and ecstasy!

      This is almost certainly something I can never have, being a rational theonormal; a son of the empty age…

      There is no higher yearning for man than to feel such overwhelming connection with the ‘forever and always’, as you do Glosoli.

      I give you no word of caution, no cause for restraint! Follow your star!

      I want Glosoli to go out into the world and cause Chaos and Madness and Spectacle!

      Get a whole group to follow you, hell I’d love it if you managed to build an ‘army’!

      You’ll probably even die before the mental crack runs out, you lucky crazy bastard!!!

      • glosoli says:

        I was a son of the empty age myself, not a single thought to faith, God, religion, any of it. So I am more suprised than anyone with what has transpired, but please be assured, I did not construct any of it myself, and plenty of others before me and in current times are not constructing the supernatural events they are experiencing either. Check on youtube for the inexplicable sounds of ram’s horn trumpets being heard back in March- May, as I was being put through my 40 days of testing and refinement.

        If you want it yourself, just have it in your heart, or say a quick prayer, and mean it, that you want to know the truth, want to know God and Jesus, if they are out there. They are so kind, that even that level of curiosity, with no belief, will get them working for you, via angels. What’s to lose by NOT asking the question eh?

        I can’t die, did you miss that bit in my blog, I ate from the tree of life.
        I ate some hidden manna too recently, I haven’t posted it yet. Keep that to yourself ok?

        Hope to see you in the kingdom.
