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.

2-Headed Snake Destroys Towns & Cities

There is this American Indian prophecy about the Double-Headed Snake (representative of Freemasonry's two-headed eagle) which went to all the towns and cities destroying them. My family tells me there is some paperwork saying we are part American Indian, I do have some inclinations to their way of thinking.

Learn what is really happening today and compare, then prepare. The Swine Flu, and the vaccine for it, are said to be bio-weapons.

Here is a version of the new Universal Medicine symbol



Secretary of Health Kathleen Sebelius beside the two-heads.

 

She spoke about the imposing Swine Flue vaccine.

Something else to think about is the symbol of the United States Army Medical Command seen below.

On Bathing

St. Clement of Alexandria had some things to say about the bath and bathing.

Here is a link:

http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/anf02.vi.iii.iii.ix.html

It is sinful to be unclean. But it is alright to simply wash with a clean cloth, if we have one. Water can be helpful too, but all water has now been poisoned by chemicals, etc.

God does not expect from us more than we can reasonably do, it is not reasonable for us to pollute ourselves with cleaning products that are actually toxic in the first place. People do not realize the condition we are all really living in.

Just using a natural type cloth might not satisfy the more modern-minded kind of people who in their misguided understanding feel that everything must constantly be physically sanitized. Science has shown that attempting to live in a completely sterile environment makes a person weaker and more susceptible to the effects of germs. Sometimes cleanliness, at least from a modern perspective, can backfire. Basically all the soaps today are made with toxic chemicals or are packaged in unclean petroleum products like plastic or cardboard paper. We are all more ill from such things than we realize.

We should not always go along with the crowd or accept what we were taught about cleanliness, etc.

Agafia Lykov is Still Alive in the Taiga

The governor (who once ran for president of Russia) of the province where 64 year old Agafia is still living sent people to trying and convince her to move out of her isolation, they do not want anyone living in the area because it is now a nature preserve. Humans harm the environment, they falsely say. That did not stop them from giving Agafia an unnecessary gasoline powered saw and cement, all bad news. It is truly the industrialized world which is harmful. The visitors did gather food for the animals, cleared the food cellar and made some repairs to the toxic and poisonous roof of the cabin.

Moneygrubbers

A moneygrubber is a person who is intent on or preoccupied with accumulating money. The picture below is from page 29 of the book, Archpriest Avvakum, The Life Written By Himself - English translation by Michigan Slavic Publications 1979. The lower caption says, “A monk’s vision of the hellish punishments awaiting moneygrubbers (lixoimcy); a tree rises from the bowels of Judas, that great lover of silver, and on it hang in hellfire both men and women whose lives were ruined by this sinful obsession.”


In truth our money today is not real money, they print it out of thin air. We should not have anything to do with it. The link below from CNN News tells us that 90% of U.S. bills are contaminated with cocaine, though not enough to cause health problems. I do not want to have anything to do with money, even if they (falsely) claim that the drug levels on it are healthy.

Rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem

The Temple Institute in Jerusalem is rebuilding the Altar for the Jewish Temple. Here is a thorough Blog report.

The next link is a two minute news video from Russia (and in Russian) where rebuilding of the Temple in happening in the Jerusalem suburbs. A place is made to burn the sacrifice of turtledoves (pigeons). The Jews want to transfer part of this, which is about a 5 meters square stone plate, to the Temple mountain. The journalist, of course, says this would bring a loud uproar from the Muslims. But the Jews hope that part of it will be enough for a beginning. Maybe only the chair of the rabbi (teacher) mentioned in Leviticus. This is the 60th year of the beginning of Israel. As we see more and more of these types of things happening what manner of people ought we to be?

One more link for all around coverage of this significant event is the Israel National News report about Sacrificial Altar being built on Tisha B’av.

An American Woman Wanderer

The link below is to a one hour film documentary about a woman in America who was a moneyless wanderer and walked tens of thousands of miles. The film begins with her telling of herself, “I am a pilgrim, a wanderer.”

I would just mention a few more points.

She took a vow to walk penniless until mankind had learned peace.

"This is a real pilgrimage...on foot, I do not hitchhike, I walk in spite of all the rides that are offered...I took a vow at the beginning that I would remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace. Walking until I am given shelter, and fasting until I am given food, and though I have never asked for anything, I can truthfully say that I have been supplied.”

She called herself, “Peace Pilgrim.”

Her message was not new, Overcome evil with good, and falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.

She went on to say, “I took my vow of simplicity. I shall not accept more than I need...the need level for a pilgrim is about rock bottom.”

She was married, her husband divorced her. Her husband was drafted into the military and told him that as long as he was in the Service, she would not go to visit him and would not have anything to do with him.

I am certain that the interpretation she takes on certian ideas are different than the Old Russian Stranniki, but she certainly did many things right that most people today do not bother with at all.

Another comment of hers was this, “...if I am killed, it destroys merely the body, which is transient anyway.”

She died when riding in a car, going to a church. Another car crossed the line and hit head on, killing both her and her driver. She died on the road.

The Age of the Fathers

The Aeon (or Age) of the Fathers of the Church is practically and technically long gone, for most intents and purposes. The linage of the Greek Fathers went into oblivion with the downfall of Constantinople, perhaps even sooner with the sacks on Constantinople by the Crusaders. I see the Greeks as having a steady downhill trend for the total of the last 1,000 years. We do see some Russians who certainly qualify as Church Fathers, until the 17th century. If you can accept it, the strong Stranniki are the last of the Fathers. Now the culmination of the world is upon us. The days we are in today are like the days of Noah and worse than the days of Sodom. So do not expect very much lately in the way of the Church Fathers. For at least 500 years we really do not find much of a record for anything like a Church Father. Be watchful, and take ever so much care out there.

The USA is Killing Old Believer Culture

In a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article dated Aug 9, 1978 titled The Old Believers in the New World it says:

“...they fear that American freedoms are luring some youngsters away from a faith the Old Believers religious sect has preserved through three centuries... Old Believers in this area have approached American life cautiously... ‘I’d like to bring up my children the way I have been,’ said Fedor Frolov, a 37-year-old father of five, ‘I wont give up easy... The main problem is the kids get 16 years old and want cars.’ ... ‘The Russian parents want more discipline in the schools,’ says Jens Robinson, Woodburn’s superintendent. ‘They say “hit the kid,” but that’s not kosher in American public schools... One Old Believer who has lived all over the world told me that the United States...is killing them, eroding the culture.’ Mrs. Schay says the Old Believers were wary of doctors and hospitals when they first arrived... ‘they feel they can accept some things without giving up their own basic way of life.’ she says, ‘But when you give up what is dear to you, how do you replace the empty holes? People who are really worried and dedicated will probably move out of here’.”


A young member of the Old Believers religious sect takes a break from work in the vineyards near Woodburn, Ore. The Old Believers are a breakaway group of the Russian Orthodox Church. This community strives like others scattered around the world to preserve its way of life.

The news article says that the hair of women is erotic and must be hidden.

It also says School officials in Oregon agreed to excuse children from sex education and evolution classes. I know of another report saying that Physical Education and Music classes were also not required. Old Believer children were allowed to eat lunch at separate tables, with separate plates, utensils and food. Even with all those omissions the situation was grim, today (so many years later) it is far, far gone.

Flee From Society and You Will Be Saved

Arsenius the Great (4th century) was a tutor to princes and one of the most revered of the early Christians... A voice came to him saying, “Arsenius, flee from men and you will be saved.” St. Arsenius gave up his position and wealth in order to live out the rest of his days as a monk (as one alone without anything). Since this was true so long ago, how much more so is it applicable to us today.

Rejecting Naturalization Antichrist Seal

The 1953 New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, Vol. X we see on page 123 the following:

“From the Filipovtzi [Old Believers], toward the end of the eighteenth century, arose the ‘Pilgrims’ (Stranniki) or ‘Fugitives’ (Bye-guny), who, in conformity with Matt. x. 37-38, forsook their homes and families, rejected legal [that is State sponsored] marriage and the certificate of naturalization with the seal of the ‘Antichrist,’ and ate no food from the vessels of strangers. A sub-sect of the Pilgrims intentionally postponed their vow of wandering until toward the end of their lives, but occupied a less honored position.”
