… if the third millennium will be not magic-religious, it will be not… God is not a religious or philosophical idea, God is Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit and all the Heaven and Earth, Angels and Saints, and Prophets and High Priests and all about God as Man and the Man is waiting for the Miracle of God – daily…”


… al treilea mileniu va fi magfic-religious, sau nu va fi deloc… Dumnezeu nu este o idee religioasa sau o filosofica, Dumnezeu este Iisus Christos si Sfintul Duh si Cerurile si Pamintul, Ingerii si Sfintii, si Profetii si Marii Preoti si totul despre Dumnezeu ca Om si Omul care asteapta Miracolul lui Dumnezeu – zilnic…”

(Theophil Magus)




Indrazneala pe care o avem la El este ca, daca cerem ceva dupa voia Lui, ne asculta.

Si daca stim ca ne asculta, orice I-am cere, stim ca dobindim lucrurile pe care I le-am cerut.” ( Intiia epistola a Sfintului Apostol Ioan, 5/14-15)

Sint de implinit deci, doua conditii esentiale:

…dupa voia Lui…”

…daca stim ca ne asculta…”

Iar prima, o conditioneaza clar si raspicat pe a doua.

Astfel, pentru omul acestui inceput de mileniu trei, om care practic a pierdut simtul sacrului si pentru care Dumnezeu este un mod de a filosofa fara solutii practice, iar Iisus Christos este un mod de a face politica si istorie,

Dupa voia Domnului ” devine sinonimul perfect al hazardului.

Daca ai noroc ,bine. Daca nu, asta e si n-ai ce face… Soarta…!

Cit despre a fi constient ca Domnul te asculta – sa fim seriosi! Intr-o lume dominata de hazard, singurele “ chestii ”( sau, business ?) despre care vrem sa fim constienti ca ne asculta, desigur, nu pot fi decit bancile, tehnologia si regele lor atit de mult iubit, computerul. “ Dupa voia Domnului “ ramin toate-toate celelalte, chiar si sarbatorile religioase, ca niste vacante binevenite si tot pe

acolo, inscaunarea presedintilor , ministrilor sau alte carnavale binecuvintate de zelosul cler de pretutindeni.

Nu putem sti ca El, Domnul nostru, ne asculta decit intru Credinta, cu atit mai abitir cu cit ne recunoastem zilnic pacatele – faptuite zilnic.

Iar daca traim intru Credinta, vom afla ca nimic nu e intimplator :

totul e dupa voia Domnului.

Asadar, putem avea acea indrazneala despre care ne vorbeste Sfintul Apostol Ioan.

Dar, noi avem dreptul sa fim de acord cu asta… Sau, nu.

Caci exista inca si acel, celalalt stapin al Pamintului – cel despre care Iisus isi avertizase in repetate rinduri ucenicii.

Si, odata cu ei, si pe noi. Tot un fel de ucenici…

Dar, mult, mult mai neincrezatori.

… zapada – ploaie…/

cer negru… si, Doamne…ce/

dor… de pruncul meu…”



And this is the confidence that we have in him, if we ask any thing according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we can receive the things that we desire of Him.” (First Epistle of John, 5/14-15)

Two essential conditions are fulfilled:

“… in His will…”

“…if we know He listens…”

And the first one clearly conditions the second.

And so, for the man at the begging of the third millennium, who practically lost his sacred feeling, God being only a way to philosophize with no practical solutions, and Jesus Christ a way to make politics and history

In God’s will” is the synonym of the hazard.

If you have any luck, it’s good. If not… this is the situation, you can do nothing… The fate…!

As for being conscious that God is listening – let’s be serious!

In a world dominated by hazard the only “things” (or “business”?) we want to be aware of listening are, of course, the banks, the technology and its beloved king, the computer.

In God’s will” we include all the others, even the religious holidays, like usual holidays, and the presidents’ establishing, or any other carnivals blessed by zealous clergymen from everywhere.

We cannot know that He, our Lord, is listening but through our faith, as long as we daily confess our sins.

And if we live in Faith we will find out that nothing is hazardous:

everything is in God’s will.

So we can have that guts that speaks The Saint Apostle John about.

But we have the right to agree with that… Or, not.

Because the other master of the World exists too – that about which Jesus repeatedly warns his disciples.

And together with them he warns us too. A kind of disciples too…

But much more mistrustful.


… dawn – the snow is melted …/

by a soft rain… somber sky…/

God ! I miss my child…”




In viata crestinului, cu adevarat intru Iisus Christos trebuie sa fie acestea:

  • iertarea – sa fie curajul;
  • cumpatarea – sa fie generozitatea;
  • intelepciunea – sa fie smerenia;
  • puterea – sa fie jertfa;
  • umilinta – sa fie arta si stiinta de conduce .

Poate ca nu tocmai asta e ordinea. Cine stie?

Dar poate fi un om astfel?

Dar, poate fi un crestin astfel?

Dar poate fi macar o parte din acestea, un bun crestin?

Ca om, Iisus Christos a fost mai mult decit toate acestea.

… decembrie – crivat…/

zapada neagra, noapte…./

neagra – nu plinge….”



In the Christian’s life, truthfully liven into God there must be the followings:

moderation – it must be generosity

wisdom – it must be meekness

power – it must be sacrifice

humility – it must be the art and science of leading

The order can be different. Who knows?

But can a man be like this?

Can a Christian be like this?

Can even a part of all these make a good Christian?

Being a Man, Jesus Christ was so much more.

… December cold winds…/

… the gray snow on the as-phalt…/

… mute dark night… don’t cry…”

But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 2006”, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
