Saint Paisios saw Jesus Christ when he lived on earth and described Jesus like he appears on that icon. Actually he gave instructions how exactly to paint him.

“…One afternoon something extraordinary happened to him. While praying, he saw Christ in front of him right there in the forest.”

“Was it a mystical vision of the Christ?” I asked.

“No. Elder Paisios insisted that it was Christ Himself who literally appeared in front of him. He had a material body and was seen by the elder with his ordinary vision. It was a living experience, just like the experiences he later had with dead saints. In this manifestation Christ held an opened Gospel and what He said to him was spoken verbatim in the way it was written in the Gospel. Addressing him by his first name Christ told him:

"«Ἐγώ εἰµι ἡ ἀνάστασις καί ἡ ζωή. Ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐµέ, κἄν ἀποθάνῃ, ζήσεται».

“I am the resurrection and the life: he who believes in me, even if he dies, will live.”

“This direct experience of the Christ,” Father Maximos continued, “was as far as I know the first entrance of young Paisios into the realm of supernatural revelations and was a turning point on his path toward monasticism.”

Thanks for the spiritual article sir. Pray for us all here, for sure Jesus takes good care all of us here! God blessed us all!

“I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in Me will not taste death.”

@liondani, Above verse has more meaningful content. In fact, I am a Buddhist. But because I learned from a Christian school, I fully understand the vision of Jesus Christ. Some of his words have the potential to add certain words, philosophies, to our lives.

Wow good to her that.Amen

Φοβερό, μακάρι να υπάρξουν κι άλλοι άγιοι άνθρωποι σαν το Άγιο Παισιο!
Να μας γεμίσουν με οράματα από το Χριστό…
να ενισχυθεί η πίση μας...

Those who have read The way of a Pilgrim are familiar with the expression 'The Jesus Prayer'. It refers to a short prayer the words of which are: 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner,' constantly repeated. The Way of a Pilgrim is the story of a man who wanted to learn to pray constantly (1Thes 5:I7). As the man whose experience is being related is a pilgrim, a great many of his psychological characteristics, and the way in which he learned and applied the prayer, were conditioned by the fact that he lived in a certain way, which makes the book less universally applicable than it could be; and yet it is the best possible introduction to this prayer, which is one of the greatest treasures of the Orthodox Church.

The prayer is profoundly rooted in the spirit of the gospel, and it is not in vain that the great teachers of Orthodoxy have always insisted on the fact that the Jesus Prayer sums up the whole of the gospel. This is why the Jesus Prayer can only be used in its fullest sense if the person who uses it belongs to the gospel, is a member of the Church of Christ.

All the messages of the gospel, and more than the messages, the reality of the gospel, is contained in the name, in the Person of Jesus. If you take the first half of the prayer you will see how it expresses our faith in the Lord: 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God.' At the heart we find the name of Jesus; it is the name before whom every knee shall bow (Is 45:3), and when we pronounce it we affirm the historical event of the incarnation. We affirm that God, the Word of God, co-eternal with the father, became man, and that the fullness of the Godhead dwelt in our midst (Col 2:9) bodily in his Person.

To see in the man of Galilee, in the prophet of Israel, the incarnate Word of God, God become man, we must be guided by the spirit, because it is the spirit of God who reveals to us both the incarnation and the lordship of Christ. We call him Christ, and we affirm thereby that in him were fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament. To affirm that Jesus is the Christ implies that the whole history of the Old Testament is ours, that we accept it as the truth of God. We call him Son of God, because we know that the Messiah expected by the Jews, the man who was called 'Son of David' by Bartimaeus, is the incarnate Son of God. These words sum up all we know, all we believe about Jesus Christ, from the Old Testament to the New, and from the experience of the Church through the ages. In these few words we make a complete and perfect profession of faith.

But it is not enough to make this profession of faith; it is not enough to believe. The devils also believe and tremble (James 2:I9). Faith is not sufficient to work salvation, it must lead to the right relationship with God; and so, having professed, in its integrity, sharply and clearly, our faith in the Lordship and in the Person, in the historicity and in the divinity of Christ, we put ourselves face to face with Him, in the right state of mind: 'Have mercy on me, a sinner'.

Beautiful post 🙏

@liondani, Yes, Almighty Father is merciful and he came to the earth to help and to guide Humanity and in my opinion no matter how much hardships and adversity phase we face we have to continue our faith.

And faith have power and whoever hold the faith for sure Almighty Father will help. And most importantly we should not forget one aspect and that is we all should hold the essence of Forgiveness.

And main teachings are, spreading love, peace, love and brotherhood. And we have to throw away the anger and too much materialistic aspects because these aspects influence us and that's not good at all.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

ατομα σαν τον ΠαΪσιο λιγοστα υπαρχουν στον κοσμο. Δεν ειχα την τυχη να τον γνωρισω ποτε απο κοντα αλλα ενα εχω να πω απο οσους ξερω που τον εχουν γνωρισει. Εκτος του οτι ηταν ενας ευγενικος κ συμπαθητικος ανθρωπος ειτε πιστευες στο θεο ειτε ησουν αθεος και τον γνωριζες, αυτοματως τον σεβοσουν κ μονο καλα λογια ειχες να πεις για αυτον

A prayer of the "heart" calling out the mighty name of Jesus - "Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God have mercy on me a sinner." Along with the prayers from the Imitation of Christ, which cleanses the soul and lifts us up from the earthly towards the heavenly.. Join in and let the mighty power of Jesus Christ, split open the "Red Sea" before you... Keep this prayer running and let His presence permeate your walls.... == Will you please pray a decade of the Rosary/ short prayer to support this ministry! Thank You & God Bless You!

My God have mercy on my pitiful soul for it is truly unworthy of his compassion and attention. This hymn saved my life from a thousand enemies that stood in the presence of our most holy and most merciful lord. A miracle that has taken walk upon the earth and will be displayed on judgment day for all to see! This a Romanian Chant!

There are a lot of celebrities in the world, and you probably know the name of one of them, but does that mean that you know it well? No, you do not know all the details of his life or what his attributes are.

Many know Jesus Christ, or have heard of him at least, although he lived on Earth almost 2,000 years ago, but most people do not know much about his personality, some say he was a good man, and some say he is a prophet, Some believe that God is what you think.

you are wishing that if god shows some mercy on you all you can get what you want!!!! but there are so many people who are there without food and houses, can't you show some mercy on them? if you can help then then u r their god ...

May Jesus come to the aid of the Copts and the Apostates in Egypt in these trying times. I believe in His miracles and I believe He is coming back to us all in a moments time. Lord come to our aid against those who kill and persecute us.

Amazing post

The Hail Mary reaches its high point in the words "blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus". The Eastern prayer of the heart, the Jesus Prayer, says: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." Many Christians, such as Joan of Arc, have died with the one word "Jesus" on their lips.

Greetings @liondani

I think elders painted a human God when God sent His only Son to earth to save us from sin..God is unseen Hes is a Spirit.

John 4:24
For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.

God Bless sir Daniel

So true that Jesus is the resurrection and life. Those who believe in Him by faith will have an everlasting life.

Όταν ο θεός επέλεξε να εγκαταλείψει τη μητέρα Γη... Για ακατανόητους προς εμάς λόγους, επέλεξε να δημιουργήσει γέφυρες... Ξέροντας την ασταμάτητη αδυναμία του ανθρώπου,οι οποία δε περιορίζεται στα υλικά αλλά φτάνει και τα πνευματικά,δεν είχε άλλη επιλογή... Έπρεπε να βρεί δυνατούς ανθρώπους με δυνατή πίστη και δυνατό όραμα,που πάντα με τη καθοδήγηση του,θα έκαναν την αδυναμία προτέρημα βγάζοντας μας πάλι στο φώς,απο το υπέρμετρο σκοτάδι.. Ένας από αυτούς ο πνευματικά πεφωτισμένος Άγιος Παϊσίος...

thank you, the Lord is always with us, he helps in difficult times.AMEN.AMEN.AMEN.
