For the last few years, the most observant Orthodox Church leaders in Russia have been protesting against the use of “satanic figures”, such as the “internet, smartphones, tax code, and Covid.”
In January 2019, Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church had made the proclamation that the Antichrist was here and would eventually rule the entire human race over the worldwide
internet web. He said, “The Antichrist is the person who will be at the head of the worldwide web, controlling all of humankind.”
“That means that the structure itself poses a danger. There shouldn’t be a single centre, at least not in the foreseeable future, if we don’t want to bring on the apocalypse.”
“Every time you use your gadget, whether you like it or not, whether you turn on your location or not, somebody can find out exactly where you are, exactly what your interests are, and exactly what you are scared of,” Kirill continued. “Such control from one place forebodes the coming of the Antichrist.” (1)
The “devil acts very wisely” in offering people such a “toy”, he said.
Previously, while speaking at the Duma, Patriarch Kirill warned his colleagues and citizens, “Contemporary progress contains dangers, first and foremost for the freedom of people. True freedom does not tolerate global control over the lives of individuals, this would be a prospect of apocalyptic ruin for all mankind. When we talk about the arrival of the Antichrist, starting from the Scriptures, we understand precisely this system of global control, realized by a single center of power, or even by a single person,” he said.
The key takeaways from these statements by the Russian Patriarch are the Antichrist is the person and will be the head or Master of the worldwide web.
Not a thing, not an entity, or primeval force – a single person or a man.
“There is, alongside the hypotheses of biological warfare, also the possibility of bio-psychological warfare, when trying to instill fear in the population, to control it in a more radical way, “Ilarion told the Rossija-24 TV channel. He, therefore, called for the development of “strong immunity not only physically, but also spiritually, in the strength of mind”.
Valentina Pashenko, president of the “Committee in defense of the family and morality” in Voronezh, denounces the use of biometric fingerprints to enter the bank and government buildings and rejects electronic texts.
Speaking to the BBC in April 2019, Valentina said that “when all personal data will be stored in one system, evil people will be able to exclude any unwanted person from the system”.
“First pensions and then all other information about the person, his property, social rights, data on the family and children, school and medical data, salaries: the whole life of the individual will be inserted into an electronic number”, Pashenko complains, “it is like the mark of the Stalinist camps, where our grandparents were sent”.
More recently, Orthodox bishop, Irinej (Tafunja) of Orsk, said that Covid was a sign of the Antichrist. He had said;
“Eschatological coronavirus epidemic”, in which Covid-19 is considered one of the signs of the advent of the Antichrist: “After the 666 tax codes, credit cards, e-money and other similar things, today we see with the excuse of the virus another step towards total control of every individual. In the controlled data the economic and social life of each person will be decided, without it, it will not be possible to live. Probably the next measure will be the installation of a chip directly under the skin, to check not only the health, but also the emotions and actions of the people,” he said, (2)
