Christ recently appeared to a good Cypriot man. He came to see me. He said to him:
“What do Christians nowadays are afraid of? The epidemic?
What are they afraid of, of dying?
But I DEFEATED death.
Why did I become a man from God that I am?
Then why was I crucified?
Why did I die?
And especially, a death on the Cross?
TO DEFEAT YOUR DEATH.
TO OVERCOME YOUR SIN.
TO DEFEAT THE DEVIL THAT TYRANNIZES YOU!
Do you know how long a biological death lasts? Two seconds.
It’s a crossing from the one side of the river to the other.
As soon as the hard moment of the separation of the soul from the body ends, on the other side of life, I (the Christ), I am waiting for you to give you ETERNAL LIFE, TO REJOICE WITHIN MY LIGHT, THE LIGHT OF THE HOLY TRINITY.
What are you afraid of?
Don’t I know the moment of the soul’s and body’s separation for each and every one of you?”
