The Stranniki (Russian for Runaways or Wanderers) are the strong Pomorsky Old Believers who rejected prayers for Tsar Peter and all government papers (identification, passports, money, etc). They would not wear clothing contrary to Old Orthodox Russia, nor eat with those of contrary Faith and Practice. Keeping themselves separate from the antichrist society they went far into the Siberian wilderness. This blog is about these people and my effort to conform my life to theirs.

The Beginning of the End of Old Believers

On January 13, 1968 the St. Petersburg Times in Florida ran an article titled Old Believers Find A Home:

“But something is bothering the elders of the Old Believer community - something they really didn’t figure on when they moved to Woodburn. This unexpected factor is the influence of the American way of life upon their children. How can Old Believer parents rear their youngsters in the atmosphere of a centuries-old religion when the children are exposed to a world of rock ‘n’ roll, hot rods, drinking and other accouterments of teen-age America?…Semen Fefelov, 33, the father of three children, recognizes the problem of the influence of American life upon the old ways, but he is reluctant to talk about it… Fefelov’s 13-year-old son, Paul, is typical of the younger generation whose contacts with the America of the 1960’s and 1970’s might mean the beginning of the end of the Old Believer tradition”,1892144&dq=old+believers

It is difficult to truly convert to Old Belief, there has always been one way to do it, strictness. Any compromise at all brings dangerous happenings. We all need to live a life of good repentance from all the ways of this world, the ways of our flesh and the ways of the devil. Worldliness is a mixture of all the wicked things. Holiness is distinct from worldliness.

No Blessing for Travel at the End of Time

In what is now called chapter 8 of Amos the Lord told the prophet that during the end of time any travel would not be blessed. Here it is:

“They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not find it.”

Everything we do must have the priorities in order, first things first. Anything we do without the right understanding and purpose backfires.

Destroying the Destroyers

The book of Revelation clearly reveals to us that God will destroy those who destroy the earth (Rev. 11:18). It is also important to remember the Prophet Isaiah who said this world would wear out like a garment (at 51:6). It is all the petroleum use (modern transport, electrical power, plastics and the like which are doing us in here. The people somehow think that we cannot live without them, but in truth they are our very undoing.

Jerusalem, the Antichrist, and the Temple

Antichrist Freemasons said they would pay for the Israeli Court House in Jerusalem if they were allowed to design it. This, no doubt, is where the saint martyrs at the end of time will be tried. The building complex has many satanic Freemason pagan symbols incorporated into it, such as the all-seeing eye. Here is one report The Roots of Evil in Jerusalem.

Every year the Jews set the corner stone of the new Temple in Jerusalem. Each time the corner stone is ultimately removed. Many people do expect to succeed at rebuilding the temple in this manner. St. John Chrysostom taught in his sermon on 2 Thes. 2:3,4 that the Antichrist would be seated in the temple of Jerusalem. Here is another report Temple Corner Stone to be Presented.

The words of Christ are forever true. I am thinking here of the fact that there are many antichrists. Many antichrists have already come and gone, but there also will be an ultimate Antichrist. It is a bit troublesome to think about, but perhaps he is with us even now. What manner of people ought we be if we see such things happening?

The New World Money

Ahead of the G8 Summit that happened earlier this month the Pope (leader of the nation of the Vatican and previous Nazi youth) declared the necessity to unite all mankind, nations, religions and to reform the world economy.

At the Summit the Russian president presented a test dollar coin for the whole world, he said we can touch and feel it, here it is.

Also at the Summit the Canadian PM said that the control over the lives of people must leap from the national level to the world level. As for me I certainly have no desire to participate or believe in any such antichrist ideas.

Pomorsky Nuns

Separated from society and far away in the Siberian wilderness it is still possible to find strong Pomrosky nuns such as these.

Some say there are strong Old Believers living in every nation.

Living Beyond Money

Here is somebody who gets at least one or two things right.

If you are wondering how we can live without money look at this video. 

It is about eight minutes in length. Thanks Alex for the good thoughts.
