I was reading about Catholic private revelations, where saints prophesy that there will be three days of darkness and pestilence will eat up mankind, whoever peeps out of their home will be killed, etc. and whatnot. and I was thinking that it seems different from what I was expecting, is God really a God of terror and why would he do such things? My thoughts are that the end times are really a spiritual battle, so I don’t really believe all that. I know private revelations are not given any doctrinal weight in the Catholic Church, so that’s ok.
But I was curious about what Orthodox saints have prophecied… do they say anything about the end times? Are there any good Orthodox mystics to read up that are interesting? (Doesn’t have to be related to the end times.) Thanks.
