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.

Flee ye, turn back, dwell deep...

The Holy Prophet Jeremiah says, "Flee ye, turn back, hide in deep caves..."

Jeremiah 49:8

And verse 30 says, "Flee, get you far off..."

Back in 48:28 he says: "Oh ye that dwell in Moab, leave the cities, and dwell in the rock, and be like the dove that maketh her nest in the sides of the hole's mouth."

In chapter 51:7, "the nations have drunk of her [Babylon's] wine; therefore the nations are mad."

"Oh thou that dwelleth upon MANY WATERS abundant in treasures, thine end is come..." vs 13

These words are from the prophet Jeremiah regarding the fall of Babylon. it coincides with the prophecy of the Apocalypse and that of Daniel.

Please take some time to ruminate these, hide them in your heart.

Some thoughts from a hidden one.
