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.

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.
