  • I had returned to my birthplace Cyprus after 60 years in England. My friend, the bank Manager there, said to me we are making a cruise of the 5 main Greek islands, and it includes the island of Patmos where the Apostle John, beloved of Jesus, spent his last days and wrote the Apocalypse, the book of Revelation as brought to him by the Holy Angel. We visited the actual cave he had hidden in from the pirates who frequently raided the island, up in the mountain where there is the monastery that also has manuscripts written in his blood when he ran out of ink, and which I actually saw. The thing that struck me entering the cave, which is cracked in its ceiling in three deep grooves that look like a Y, was that this was indeed our Lord had blessed with His visit, and the writings of the prophesy in the final days we now live in, the Apocalypse, is indeed a blessing to me which I never thought would happen in my lifetime, but only materialised through the blessing of my Lord and Saviour who made it possible for me. No doubt in my mind that this was indeed a revelation. Go and visit it to understand how man can touch God, and be greatful through your faith for His great gift to us.
  • If you are religious, this is such an unique place to see. I felt very emotional of being in a place where an apostle lived!
