“A Communist Police Encounter”


- Siberia, Russia -


Alexei Klebov, Jason Harper, and Steve and Sarah O’Neill were traveling on a rural road through central Siberia on their way to the logging town of Sikorsky* where some of Alexei’s Christian friends lived. God had shown the group to leave Novosibirsk, Russia and head for Sikorsky. While they were driving down a scenic, winding, paved road, talking about God and His ways, a loud screeching of tires suddenly cut through the air.

[* Sikorsky is a fictional town. Novosibirsk, Russia is an actual city.]

With a loud screech as its tires scraped across the road, Alexei’s LADA Largus Cross was skidding, burning rubber. It continued skidding across the road toward a deer that was standing in the middle of the lane with its eyes transfixed on the headlights. Within a second, the Largus Cross would strike the dumbfounded animal. But, just as the car got within 10 feet of the deer, it abruptly stopped. The stunned animal just stood still, looking at the front end, which could have killed it. Then, unharmed, it pranced off the road and back into the woods.


Sarah stared at the escaping deer with a hand over her mouth. ‘This is an amazing deliverance,’ she began to realize. They were going 50 miles per hour and stopping so fast was unheard of. If they hadn’t come to a stop as quickly as they did, their car could have been severely damaged, and would likely be un-drivable.

Since the daylight was starting to grow weaker as evening was setting in, and since the tall pine trees lining the road kept the road in shade for most of the day, their headlights had automatically come on. And, the headlights had kept the stupefied deer frozen in position.

Alexei breathed out a sigh of relief and closed his eyes to offer up a prayer of thanks. His heart was pounding in his ears as he whispered. Feeling a mixture of fear, shock, and relief, he said: “Father God, thank you so much! Thank you so much! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for rescuing us and delivering us from a tragic accident. Thank you. If it wasn’t for your hand of protection, we could be badly injured or at least have a vehicle that would be severely damaged. But, you didn’t let that happen because you are our Refuge and Strength, a very present Help in times of trouble.*”

[* See Psalm 46:1-2. God is our Refuge and Strength.]

The others were offering up similar prayers of thanksgiving.

While they were thanking God, a car pulled up behind them and flashing lights appeared in the rearview mirror. Alexei squinted at his rearview mirror and saw that a police car was now parked right behind him. He uttered another prayer for deliverance and that the officer would not notice any Bibles if he should want to search the rear end of the Largus Cross where the backpacks, food, and Bibles were stored. Alexei knew that the police in the new Russian government were ordered to search any vehicles they deemed to be suspicious.

The front door opened and a police officer emerged. His face looked rugged and his build was quite muscular. He would be intimidating to any thug who wanted to pick a fight. The Russian police officer approached Alexei’s door and Alexei rolled down his window.

The police officer looked in and studied Alexei for a couple seconds before he spoke. “Sir, are you okay? You just missed having your front end smashed in.”

“Yes,” Alexei said, breaking into a weak grin. “I nearly hit that deer. But, thankfully I was able to stop abruptly. It was a miracle I didn’t hit it.”

“Did you say it was a miracle?” the officer asked, studying Alexei’s red-bearded face.

“It wasn’t normal for me to stop as fast as I did,” Alexei said, somewhat boldly.

“Hmm. Do you consider yourself to be a religious person?” the officer asked as he pulled out a computer tablet and a stylus from a holster on his belt.

“No. I am not religious, but I believe there is a God,” Alexei said.

“What are you doing on this road and where are you going?” the man asked with a cold look in his eyes.

“We are driving to the town of Sikorsky,” Alexei said, feeling some fear attacking him. “We were going to visit some friends.”

“Are you Russian Orthodox, Muslim, Catholic, or none of the above?” the police officer asked as he tapped the screen with his stylus, filling out information.

“None of the above,” Alexei said, feeling a little nervous. He had been asked questions like this before, but now, fear was attacking him stronger. He began to pray internally.

“What would you call yourself?” the man asked, looking up from his screen.

“A Christian,” Alexei said.

“What denomination?”

His heart skipped a beat. The Russian government allowed Christians of any denomination to live in their country, but they did not allow them to conduct evangelism or mission work in Russia. Only the Eastern Orthodox adherents were allowed to promote their church.

But, Alexei felt inspired to answer: “I am a follower of the living God.”

“Please state your denomination,” the man said with a little annoyance.

“I follow what Jesus taught in the scripture,” Alexei replied calmly, feeling peace return.

“Are you a Baptist?” the officer said with more annoyance.

“No.”

“Do you have any contraband in your car? Any religious books, tracts, or videos? Do you have narcotics?”

“Sir, I have no narcotics in this car. We are followers of Jesus.”

“Stay where you are. I need to do something,” the officer said before he wheeled around and marched back to his car.

He sat down in the driver’s seat and reached over to his police radio to call in backup. Then, after a minute of talking, he walked back toward Alexei’s car.

The rugged face peered through Alexei’s window and the man said, “Sir, I need you to hand over your keys for the time being. If you refuse to comply, I will have to arrest you and detain you for further questioning, and you will be given a fine of at least 6,000 rubles.*”

[* In U.S. dollars from the year 2017, that would amount to $200 dollars.]

Hearing those words again brought fear to Alexei. He didn’t know what to do. So, internally, he said to God, “Father God, what should I do?”

“My son, you may hand over the keys for now,” a still small voice said to his spirit and soul. “I will deliver you. Just trust me. And, I the Lord your God have spoken.”

(A Russian police car. Click for source.)
Alexei resisted the idea of handing over the keys because that would mean the police officer could easily arrest him and keep him from driving off. A brief internal struggle erupted between the thought that he should give the officer the keys, versus the thought he should just drive off. If he drove off, where would he go to escape the police? They would certainly be able to track him down by satellite, and apprehend him. But, God had told Alexei that He will deliver him, and so it was safe to hand over the keys. Letting God’s words sink into his heart, Alexei surrendered his will to God and shut the car off. He removed the car keys and handed them to the officer’s outstretched hand.

Then, snatching them almost by force, the man hurried back to his car, stuffed the keys in a pocket, and sat in the drivers’ seat to wait for backup.

Sitting in the Largus Cross, the four friends began praying. Some were praying for the police officer. Others were praying that God’s best will would happen and that God would deliver them from this trial. Jason Harper feared that the police officer had called in backup to arrest them and bring them in for questioning and imprisonment. He knew that unless a miracle happened, they would be placed in separate cells, be interrogated, and then sent to concentration camps to do hard, manual labor.

And, the Bibles were still in the back of the Largus Cross. Jason knew that carrying more than two Bibles was banned in Russia. The Russian government believed that having more than two Bibles in a car, or vehicle, or on one’s person meant that the others Bibles were for ‘illegal’ distribution.

The Russian government didn’t take kindly to Bible distribution. Anyone caught doing that was fined thousands of rubles and was placed in a prison camp. The only exception was if the Russian Orthodox Church was distributing Bibles to religious centers; Bibles which were approved by the central government.

Half an hour passed before the sound of sirens came from the distance. Steve turned around in his seat and saw flashing lights down the road behind them. After half a minute, two police cars appeared racing down the road. They were definitely in a hurry. As they neared, they slowed up.

One drove to a stop in front of the Largus Cross and another pulled up to the left side. The right side of the car was close to the forest on the right shoulder of the road. Now, the car was trapped. There would be no way that hot-wiring the ignition would get the group to safety.

Four doors swung open and four police officers emerged. They all drew their service pistols and aimed at the grey car.

Then, the first officer to stop stepped out of his car and spoke over his radio to his comrades. He then approached the front door and drew his pistol, training it on Alexei.

“Sir,” the man said authoritatively, “I need you and your comrades to step out of the vehicle with your hands raised. We need to search your vehicle.”

Feeling his heart start to sink, Alexei slowly opened the door and then stood up with raised hands. The others followed suit.

While they were standing on the asphalt, the other police officers went into the car and began meticulously searching for any contraband or Bibles. They thoroughly searched the car, including in the hub caps, under seats, in the engine compartment, and in the rear luggage area. ‘Surely, they will see the Bibles, and prison will be our destination,’ Jason thought, fearfully. But, he prayed for God to blind their eyes, and gave his fears to God.

Suddenly, the officers’ radios came to life and the order came for the police to head to the scene of a tragic accident where several cars had collided with each other, at highway speeds. A semi-truck, carrying a load of logs, had crashed into a minivan and a small car.

Four of the five officers hurried to their cars and two of the three police cars took off, racing to reach the scene of the accident. The first police officer to meet them hurried over to Alexei and reached into his pocket. Pulling out the keys, with a jingle of metal, he handed them to Alexei. Then, without a word, he jogged over to his car and got in. In moments, the police car was driving off, charging down the road with its lights flashing in a new pattern, and its siren blaring.

‘That is very odd behavior,’ Alexei thought. ‘Normally, only one or two of the police cars would leave to attend to the scene of the collision, but not all the police cars. There is no one left to continue searching our vehicle and to arrest us. What is going on?’

“My son,” God’s loving voice said, “I am protecting you and taking care of you. The enemy wanted to get you off My plan for your life, but I did not let him. I allowed all three police teams to be blinded to the Bibles, and I allowed them to be deceived to not arrest you, so that you can continue on your journey. Now, go in peace, My son, for I am with you. And, I the Lord your God and Abba Father have spoken.”

“Thank you, Abba Father,” Alexei said, grinning. “I am so glad to have you as my Abba Father and God. Thank you for delivering us. Thank you.”

Sheng Is in Trouble”

- Vietnam -

Sheng, a former PLA soldier, had traveled with his friends through a jungle in Vietnam. They had found an entrance to an underground base, which was connected to a cavern system. But, Sheng had felt claustrophobic and was tired of being underground. He had excused himself and hurried back through underground tunnels and up stairways until he had reached the surface of the jungle.

Enjoying the fresh air, he had gone on a walk through the trees down some faint trails until he had run into a group of PLA soldiers. The soldiers had quickly arrested him, seeing he was not wearing the gear a PLA soldier was supposed to wear. Sheng had discarded it shortly after trusting only in Jesus to save him. Now, his friends in the underground cavern system, which was adjacent to the underground base, were concerned about him.

(Read about these events in Chapter 39.)

“Sheng Ye has been gone for a while,” Hu Zheng said as he sat down on a brown foldable camp chair beside a fire pit in a giant cavern, which was far below the surface of a Vietnamese jungle.

An encampment of dozens of tents spread out across a large area in the giant cavern. Tents, people, backpacks, and cooking pots appeared among some stalagmites, which are mineral formations. These rose up like pointy teeth from the cavern floor to meet stalactites, which hung from the cavern ceiling. Some of these “teeth” merged into hourglass shapes which somewhat resembled pillars.

An otherworldly light illuminated the cavern and the encampment by a supernatural phenomenon of God that Hu couldn’t understand. The residents in the cavern had told him that the light had come when they had prayed for more light to see by. It was God’s gift of light to brighten their darkness, and it had made Hu think of how God lights dead human hearts with His spiritual light, and brings spiritual life to them.

Cheng Yuan, a 42-year-old Chinese man, was sitting across the fire pit from Hu and poking the burning sticks with a long, forked stick. He looked up at his younger friend, a 24-year old, and frowned with deep concern on his face. “You’re right, Hu. I wonder if we should go and look for Sheng Ye. He might have gotten lost.”

“Or worse, soldiers might have discovered him,” Quang* said. “I forgot to mention to you brothers earlier, but the Chinese imperial People’s Liberation Army [PLA] patrols this area of Vietnam because it is a place where Christians traveling from China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, or Laos often go, since it has easier trails and more wild fruit trees than other places in Mainland Southeast Asia.”

[* His full name was Nguyen Duc Quang. In Vietnamese names, the given name comes last.]

Guang Yan, a gracious 70-year-old Chinese man, sat down on a camp chair beside Cheng Yuan and looked at his new friends. He was wearing a green changshan tunic, which came down well below his knees. Underneath the hem of his tunic were brown trousers and leather shoes. His appearance was always dignified in his traditional Chinese clothing, but his manner was warm, gentle, and humble.

“I warned your friend about the dangers of Chinese patrols, but he seemed really eager to go outside and get some sunlight,” Guang Yan said. “I can’t blame him for a desire to see the sun, but we must only go where God leads us to, for the Chinese are increasing the amount of their patrols through this region. If we follow God’s leading, we will be perfectly safe.”

“I feel that God is showing me that we should pray for Sheng,” Hu said.

“Let’s pray then,” Guang Yan said as he bowed his head.

The men began praying for Sheng’s safety and deliverance. After an hour had passed, Guang Yan spoke, “God our Father is giving me a message to share with the group. God says: ‘My children, your friend, Sheng, is in trouble, but I will get him out of the danger. He has gotten himself into a predicament. Seek Me, and I will show you more and I will deliver him from the trouble. And, I the Lord your God and Abba Father have spoken.’”

Hu stared at the ashes in the fire pit and silently spoke with God. “Dear Abba God, what happened to Sheng? Is he fallen into a pit? Did he get lost? Did Chinese soldiers find him?”

“My son, it is true that Sheng has been captured by the enemy. He is in some trouble, but I will get him out of harm’s way. So, trust Me and pray for him. You will see Me work miracles. And, I the Lord your God and Abba Father have spoken.”
