Are we Heading to This Again? Starvation and Cannibalism During Man-Made Famine in 1920s Russia | Luke 21:11

According to prophecy, yes. But the worst to come will be after the persecution of the elect due to our testimony for the Most High Yahawah. There isn’t much about Israelites in the news to that effect yet but likely will be once the mark of the beast (RFID microchip) is made mandatory (Rev 13:17).

  • Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
    Luke 21:10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
    Luke 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
    Luke 21:12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.
    Luke 21:13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

2 Esdras 15 & 16 have a lot to say about end times prophecy, including famine. One selected verse below:

  • 2 Esdras 16:21 Behold, victuals shall be so good cheap upon earth, that they shall think themselves to be in good case, and even then shall evils grow upon earth, sword, famine, and great confusion.

Are we Heading to This Again? Starvation and Cannibalism During Man-Made Famine in 1920s Russia

Standing solemnly in their thick winter coats behind a table laden with children’s body parts.

This is the grave photo of a couple that shows how starving people turned to cannibalism to survive during a man-made famine in 1920s Russia.

More than five million people died during the catastrophe, which began in 1921 and lasted through 1922.

Russian communist revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known as Lenin, had been in charge of the country since 1917.

In a chilling disregard for the suffering of his fellow countrymen he instructed food to be seized from the poor.

Lenin’s Bolsheviks party believed peasants were actively trying to undermine the war effort and by taking their food away it reduced their strength.

The famine was able to take root with ease due to the economic problems caused by World War I, five years of civil war, and a drought in 1921 which led to 30 million Russians becoming malnourished.

As Lenin declared ‘let the peasants starve,’ the result was to force them to resort to trading human flesh on the black market.

Russian academics have previously researched and catalogued examples of cannibalism and corpse eating and in one account described how a woman refused to give over her husband’s dead body because she was using it for meat.

The starving peasants were even seen digging up recently buried corpses to retrieve their flesh, as well as eating grass and animals that were previously considered pets.

The police took no action as cannabalism was considered a legitimate method of survival.

Eventually aid workers from America and Europe arrived and in 1921 one wrote a stomach churning account of what they’d seen.

Families were killing and devouring fathers, grandfathers and children.

Ghastly rumours about sausages prepared with human corpses though officially contradicted, were common.

In the market, among rough huckstresses swearing at each other, one heard threats to make sausages of a person.

Other disturbing images from the famine show children suffering with severe malnutrition, their stomachs bloated and almost every bone in their body visible.

One of the worst hit places was the city of Samara, situated in the southeastern part of European Russia at the confluence of the Volga and Samara Rivers.

Aid from outside Russia was initially rejected by Lenin because he saw it as other countries interfering.

Polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen came to the city in 1921 and was horrified by what he saw – almost the entire city was dying from hunger.

He raised 40 billion Swiss francs and established up to 900 places where people could get food.

Lenin was eventually convinced to let international aid agencies in and Nansen was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts.

The American American Relief Administration, who were told they could not help in 1919, were granted access to the sick and starving in 1921 and provided great relief along with European aid agencies such as Save The Children.

Lenin died shortly after the famine, in 1924, and was replaced by Joseph Stalin who became the leader of the Soviet Union.
