"Why did God allow them to close and raze so many Churches in Russia?"
And she answered with the following words:
"This was the will of God. The people are hypnotized, and a terrible demonic power has been put into action. It is in the air, and penetrates everything.
In olden times, this demonic power dwelt in the marshes and the dense forest, because people would go to church regularly, and wore and honored the Cross. Their homes were protected by holy icons, the vigil lamps that were burning, the holy water services which they did...
The demons were sent far away and feared to approach...
Today, however, these homes and these very people have become dwelling places of demons because of their faithlessness and by their distancing themselves from Christ."
