I was informed of Demons, written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Published in 1871 — a good 30+ years before the actual Russian Revolution — it describes the darkness already on its way to Russia at that time.
From the Amazon.com blurb:
Inspired by the true story of a political murder that horried Russians in 1869, Fyodor Dostoevsky conceived of Demons as a “novel-pamphlet” in which he would say everything about the plague of materialist ideology that he saw infecting his native land. What emerged was a prophetic and ferociously funny masterpiece of ideology and murder in pre-revolutionary Russia.
- If poetic prophets existed in 1871 in Russia, then they exist today.
- Yet there are no famous writers or artists in the West who are both as godly, and as talented, as Dostoyevsky. With the organization of today’s artistic community, Satan has grown skilled at neutering them before they become a problem, just as the seminaries excel at gelding preachers before they become a threat to Our Leaders.
- And yet, today’s perverted revolutionaries are a lot more spineless and insipid than they were in 1917, and far less willing to sacrifice anything at all. Cut off from their Establishment network; corporate, government, and sugar daddy funding; legal protection; and media & academic coddling, they would blow away with the wind.
- Indeed, the only thing more insipid than our current enemies are our current Christian leadership.
- There is this thing about the top-down command and control systems Satan favours: they tend to ossify, freeze in place, grow more bureaucratic and bloated, frozen in a particular vision of the future.
- When the money is gone, these guys are gone.
- These guys are economic, financial, and fiscal incompetents, as short-sighted and debt-addicted as they come. “But deficits don’t matter!”… until they do.
- God’s people need to hustle now, to get ready to topple idols in the coming years and decades. ‘Cause a hard wind’s gonna blow, and these aging elitist structures simply have no place in the coming world.
- No more than socialist goose-stepping armies (either red or black), centralized media (a la television, radio, and newspapers), or official academic and political gatekeepers have any place in the future.
Dostoyevsky spoke the truth, as commanded by God… and he was ignored. And Russia paid the price.
But at that time, the New Order was still in its growth stage, and really did believe that it would inherit the future.Today, the righteous speak, and few listen… but the future resides with this handful who hears. A handful that, if they grow in righteousness and commitment, will be heard loud and clear when the enemy’s blather dwindles into repetitive background noise.It’s not about unheeded warnings today, but those who head the Divine voice of instruction. Not warning about future punishment, but promises of future victory, in return for obedience to Christ our King.Power does not reside in numbers, or in money, or in political position, but in those who uphold the will of God.
The twentieth century is dead.
The future uncounted generations of righteous victory calls out.
Who will respond with faith and obedience to God Most High, and to His Son Jesus Christ?
I will – and I pray you will too!
