The future foretold
|Prophecies of a disastrous future are told by many, too many! But it isn't a new fad as there are plenty of them recorded from hundreds of years ago. Are they really describing our near future or are they just visions of fantasy?
Throughout the texts, I have highlight parts that have similarities elsewhere — thus beginning to bring together the bits that are common to give an overall sense of what the near future may hold. These common themes are brought together in a page of clues.
2023, 2034 Solar (Storm) Cycle
Modern technology that relies on satellites such as mobile phones, the internet, banking systems, and sat-navs, could go down and some experts fear the loss of power could quickly lead to anarchy on the streets if they could not quickly be reconnected.
The threat of asteroids hitting Earth and wiping out life on the planet have been in the headlines since celebrities and scientists joined forces for World Asteroid Day. Yet a campaign following World Asteroid Day on 30 June 2015 to get global governments to do more to prepare for such a strike, was near dismissed by Whitehall. The Cabinet Office told Express.co.uk,it does not see the danger of such a strike as an imminent threat.
However, more worryingly, the UK Government has admitted it — and the rest of the world — has done next to nothing to prepare for a major solar storm — which could hit us with as little as 12 hours notice.
A solar storm follows eruptions of mass and energy from the sun's surface, including flares, sunspots, and coronal mass ejections which send huge amounts of X-rays and radiation towards Earth. It is not exactly clear what would happen if a major solar storm struck us, but among the most alarmist predictions are that nuclear weapons and power plants could be detonated, leading to the end of the world.
There is a one per cent chance of a major solar storm happening in any given year — odds which are much greater than a direct strike from a large space rock that could devastate a town or dirt or cause tsunamis in the ocean.
A report from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) recalls the 1859 "Carrington Event" — the most powerful coronal mass ejection on record which left phone telegraph poles sizzling with electricity. The Carrington Event was named after British Astronomer Richard Carrington who monitored the shock occurrence. There have been less powerful storms, albeit still strong ones, experienced in 1989 in Quebec, 2003 in Sweden, and 2005 globally, although none reached Carrington levels. After 2005 a global strategy was proposed, but so far nothing meaningful has resulted. With those the only major technology of the day to be impacted, it is anticipated if one of the same magnitude were to strike today the results would be catastrophic and could cost the global economy at least $2trillion (£1.3trillion). The BIS report said "modern society would be woefully under prepared to handle such a storm", which it said were "difficult to forecast accurately". The BIS report on the Space Weather Preparedness Strategy said: "The short 12-hour warning time would leave major urban areas ill-prepared, and there is currently a lack of capability to monitor the effects of severe events once they start." The BIS report said the worst possible scenario would be a coronal mass ejection of plasma from the sun, during which the corona — the bright glow seen encircling the sun during total solar eclipses — came off, sending X-rays and high-energy particles directly to Earth.
Solar storms are difficult to predict, but they tend to become more powerful every 11 years as the sun reverses its magnetic field at this time. The last time this happened was 2012, meaning the next most volatile period expected is 2023. And after that 2034.
The BIS report said: "The main challenge we face is that awareness of the risk is low. Much more needs to be done to encourage potentially vulnerable sectors to adopt measures to mitigate the likely impacts."
Earlier this year the USA government released a report detailing how it needed to do much more about the threat.
And this month (July 2015), a UK consortium, led by Airbus Defence and Space, proposed a new mission to develop an early-warning system for potentially hazardous storms. Named Carrington-L5, after the Victorian event, it hopes to allow a five-day warning, giving much more time to prepare.
Another possibility for a dramatic event in the 2030s — 2034 this time.It's possible that economic strained times could be disrupted and a total economic collapse could be the result of a major Carrington event.
2029Apr13 & 2036Apr13 — 99942 Apophis
"Apophis (previously known by its provisional designation 2004 MN4) has a well determined orbit, based on both optical and radar observations. At closest approach to the Earth on Friday, 13 April 2029, Apophis will be inside the geosynchronous belt of communications satellites (at a distance of just 29,500km or 18,300mi), and it will be easily visible to the unaided eye for observers in Europe. After some initial concern, it is now clear that the chances of an impact in 2029 are effectively zero, but that is not the end of the story. As Apophis passes so close to Earth in 2029, Earth's magnetic field will alter it's trajectory. Within the uncertainties on the position of Apophis at closest approach is a small region (called a ‘keyhole’) that leads to a return to Earth every seven years. Specifically, if the asteroid passes centrally through one keyhole it will collide with the Earth on 13 April 2036. We might not know whether it will miss the keyholes until 2029."

"Based upon the observed brightness, Apophis' diameter was initially estimated at 450 metres (1,480 ft); a more refined estimate based on spectroscopic observations at NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility in Hawaii by Binzel, Rivkin, Bus, and Tokunaga (2005) is 350 metres (1,150 ft). NASA's impact risk page lists the diameter at 330 metres (1,080 ft).
"NASA initially estimated the energy that Apophis would have released if it struck Earth as the equivalent of 1,480 megatons of TNT. A later, more refined NASA estimate was 880 megatons, then revised to 510 megatons. The impacts which created the Barringer Crater or caused the Tunguska event are estimated to be in the 3-10 megaton range. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa was the equivalent of roughly 200 megatons. With such a big impact, thousands of square miles would be directly affected by the blast and the whole of the Earth would see the effects of the dust released into the atmosphere." Credit: Wikipedia
If Apophis approaches Earth correctly in 2029 it gets tied into a revisit every seven years — that's 2029, 2036, 2043 and 2050…

2030 — Mini Ice Age
The earth is 15 years from a 'mini ice-age' that will cause bitterly cold winters during which rivers such as the Thames freeze over, scientists have predicted.
Solar researchers at the University of Northumbria have created a new model of the sun's activity which they claim produces "unprecedentedly accurate predictions".
They said fluid movements within the sun, which are thought to create 11-year cycles in the weather, will converge in such a way that temperatures will fall dramatically in the 2030s.
Solar activity will fall by 60 per cent as two waves of fluid "effectively cancel each other out", according to Prof Valentina Zharkova.
In a presentation to the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno, she said the result would be similar to freezing conditions of the late 17th century.
"In the cycle between 2030 and around 2040 the two waves exactly mirror each other – peaking at the same time but in opposite hemispheres of the sun," she said.
"Their interaction will be disruptive, or they will nearly cancel each other.
"We predict that this will lead to the properties of a ‘Maunder minimum'".
Maunder minimum, indicating low sunspot activity, was the name given to the period between 1645 and 1715, when Europe and North America experienced very cold winters. Credit: The TelegraphThis is another pointer towards unusual happenings in the 2030s. Whether the solar activity is a purely Sun related cycle or whether it is influenced by wider astronomical influences I have no idea. If it happens to be a system of which the sun is just a part it may indicate that something else is happening in 2030 to cause this change in solar activity.
2032Aug26 — Asteroid 2013 TV135
Ukrainian astronomers discover an asteroid, called 2013 TV135, with the power of 2,500 nuclear bombs. It's officially described as 'potentially hazardous'. Credit: CNET
An Earth impact would have the kinetic energy of 3,200 megatons of TNT, approximately 60 times the energy of Russia's 50 Mt Tsar Bomba. This would also be equivalent to 16 times the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa which was 200 Mt and had a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 6. Credit: Wikipedia
2040Feb05 — Asteroid 2011 AG5
The asteroid is estimated to have a diameter of about 140 meters. It is estimated that an impact would produce the equivalent of 100 megatons of TNT.
In September 2013, there will be an opportunity to make additional observations of 2011 AG5 when it comes within 0.98 AU (147,000,000 km; 91,000,000 mi) of Earth. The 2013 observations will allow a further refinement to the known trajectory. The asteroid will also pass 0.01 AU (1,500,000 km; 930,000 mi) from the Earth on 3 February 2023. The 2023 gravitational keyhole was 227 miles (365 kilometres) wide. Credit: Wikipedia
2048Jun03 — Asteroid 2007 VK184
The asteroid has a modest observation arc of 60 days, and the imprecise trajectory of this asteroid is complicated by close approaches to Earth, Venus and Mars. Around May 23, 2014, the asteroid will pass 0.16−0.19 AU from Earth and reach an apparent magnitude of ~20.9. This may allow astronomers to recover the asteroid and refine the odds of a future collision. Risk assessments were calculated based on a diameter of 130 meters. It is estimated that, if it were ever to impact Earth, it would enter the atmosphere at a speed of 19.2 km/s and would have a kinetic energy equivalent to 150 megatons of TNT. Assuming the target surface is sedimentary rock, the asteroid would impact the ground with the equivalent of 40 megatons of TNT and create a 2.1 kilometers (1.3 mi) impact crater. Asteroids of approximately 130 meters in diameter are expected to impact Earth once every 11000 years or so. Credit: Wikipedia

Nemesis is a hypothetical hard to detect brown dwarf, orbiting the Sun at a distance of about 50,000 to 100,000 AU (about 0.8-1.5 light years), somewhat beyond the Oort cloud. This star was originally postulated to exist as part of a hypothesis to explain a perceived cycle of mass extinctions in the geological record, which seem to occur once every 26 million years or so. In addition, observations by astronomers of the sharp edges of Oort clouds, similar to that of the Solar System, around various binary (double) star systems, in contrast to the diffuse edges of the Oort clouds around single star systems, has prompted some scientists to postulate that a dwarf star may be co-orbiting the Sun.

An undiscovered planet orbiting the sun unseen in deep space may be revealed by a new NASA telescope. The behaviour of comets and a recently discovered dwarf planet have led astronomers to believe that a huge undiscovered planet may exist. A pair of astrophysicists are hoping that data from NASA’s WISE infrared telescope offers proof that a planet larger than Jupiter they have named “Tyche” does exist.

Astronomers say a Neptune-sized planet lurks beyond Pluto — 20 Jan 2016. The solar system appears to have a new ninth planet. Today, two scientists announced evidence that a body nearly the size of Neptune—but as yet unseen—orbits the sun every 15,000 years. During the solar system’s infancy 4.5 billion years ago, they say, the giant planet was knocked out of the planet-forming region near the sun. Slowed down by gas, the planet settled into a distant elliptical orbit, where it still lurks today. The claim is the strongest yet in the centuries-long search for a “Planet X” beyond Neptune. The quest has been plagued by far-fetched claims and even outright quackery. But the new evidence comes from a pair of respected planetary scientists, Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, who prepared for the inevitable skepticism with detailed analyses of the orbits of other distant objects and months of computer simulations. "If you say, ‘We have evidence for Planet X,’ almost any astronomer will say, ‘This again? These guys are clearly crazy.’ I would, too," Brown says. "Why is this different? This is different because this time we’re right." Yet the allure of Planet X persisted. In the 1980s, for example, researchers proposed that an unseen brown dwarf star could cause periodic extinctions on Earth by triggering fusillades of comets. In the 1990s, scientists invoked a Jupiter-sized planet at the solar system’s edge to explain the origin of certain oddball comets. Just last month, researchers claimed to have detected the faint microwave glow of an outsized rocky planet some 300 AU away, using an array of telescope dishes in Chile called the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA). (Brown was one of many skeptics, noting that ALMA’s narrow field of view made the chances of finding such an object vanishingly slim.) Brown got his first inkling of his current quarry in 2003, when he led a team that found Sedna, an object a bit smaller than both Eris and Pluto. Sedna’s odd, far-flung orbit made it the most distant known object in the solar system at the time. Its perihelion, or closest point to the sun, lay at 76 AU, beyond the Kuiper belt and far outside the influence of Neptune’s gravity. The implication was clear: Something massive, well beyond Neptune, must have pulled Sedna into its distant orbit. That something didn't’t have to be a planet. Sedna’s gravitational nudge could have come from a passing star, or from one of the many other stellar nurseries that surrounded the nascent sun at the time of the solar system’s formation. Since then, a handful of other icy objects have turned up in similar orbits. By combining Sedna with five other weirdoes, Brown says he has ruled out stars as the unseen influence: Only a planet could explain such strange orbits.
Edgar Cayce (18 Mar 1877 — 03 Jan 1945) was an American who claimed to be a psychic with the ability to channel answers to questions on subjects while in a self-induced trance. Though Cayce considered himself a devout Christian and lived before the emergence of the New Age Movement, some believe he was the founder of the movement and influenced its teachings. Cayce became a celebrity toward the end of his life and the publicity given to his prophecies has overshadowed what to him were usually considered the more important parts of his work, such as healing (the vast majority of his readings were given for people who were sick) and theology.

His predictions are widely regarded as very accurate — especially his economic predictions (as these have been checked).
There is a book "Earth's Catastrophic Past and Future: A Scientific Analysis of Information Channeled by Edgar Cayce" by William Hutton and Jonathan Eagle, 2004.
Volcanic activity will proceed major earthquakes
"If there are greater activities in Vesuvius [Naples, Italy] or Pelee [Caribbean island of Martinique], then the southern coast of California and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada, we may expect, within the three months following same, inundation by the earthquakes. But these are to be more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere."
In addition, "The Mt. Etna area in Sicily, along with other portions of the Mediterranean area, will experience 'sinking or rising' of Earth's crust."
The ocean level will rise significantly
"As to conditions in the geography of the world, of the country — changes here are gradually coming about… For, many portions of the east coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the west coast, as well as the central portion of the U.S. In the next few years land will appear in the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific. And what is the coast line now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many battle fields of the present will be ocean, will be the seas, the bays, the lands over which The New World Order will carry on their trade as one with another."
Dramatic changes in coastlines around the world
"The Earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the east coast of America. When there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea [South Pacific] and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that's almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Etna area, then we many know it has begun."
Major Earth changes will occur in America
"Portions of the now east coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation, though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia — these will disappear. This will be much sooner. The waters of the lakes will empty into the Gulf, rather than the waterway over which such discussions have been recently made. It would be well if the waterway were prepared, but not for that purpose for which it is at present being considered. Then the area where the entity is now located (Virginia Beach) will be among the safety lands, as will be portions of what is now Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and much of the southern portion of Canada and the eastern portion of Canada; while the western land — much of that is to be disturbed as, of course much in other lands."
Cayce's glimpse of his next incarnation and a view into the future
Cayce once had a prophetic dream involving an event in his next incarnation on Earth. It gives us an interesting look into the future:
"I had been born again in 2100 A.D. in Nebraska. The sea apparently covered all of the western part of the country, as the city where I lived was on the coast. The family name was a strange one. At an early age as a child I declared myself to be Edgar Cayce who had lived 200 years before. Scientists, men with long beads, little hair, and thick glasses, were called in to observe me. They decided to visit the places where I said I had been born, lived, and worked in Kentucky, Alabama, New York, Michigan, and Virginia.
"Taking me with them the group of scientists visited these places in a long, cigar-shaped metal flying ship which moved at a high speed.
"Water covered part of Alabama. Norfolk, Virginia, had become an immense seaport. New York had been destroyed either by war or an immense earthquake and was being rebuilt. Industries were scattered over the countryside. Most of the houses were built of glass. Many records of my work as Edgar Cayce were discovered and collected.
"The group returned to Nebraska, taking the records with them to study… These changes in the Earth will come to pass, for the time and times and half times are at an end, and there begins those periods for the readjustments…"
Mitar's prophecies are listed here. The historical facts are listed against the prophecies for those up to the present time and they are very accurate. There is no timeline in the quotes, so I don't know where the site came up with the dates in the WW3 heading.Credit for the following text: www.bibliotecapleyades.net
Reference: An article in Nexus magazine April-May 1996, "The Prophetic Visions of Mitar Tarabich", by Tim Hobbs. This Nexus magazine article discusses the prophecies of Mitar Tarabich, a peasant who had visions of the future, who lived in Serbia from 1829 to 1899. A priest recorded these visions that Mitar told him in a notebook. Many of the prophecies concern events that have already occurred concerning Serbia and Yugoslavia. Concerning prophecies about the future mentioned in this article, these are very interesting:
Up to about 2050
World War III (2050-2100)
The French prophet Michel de Nostredame lived from 1503 to 1566 in France, and he wrote a book of prophecies consisting of ten sets (or Centuries) of 100 quatrains. The full writings are here, but beware nothing is what it seems!
Nostradamus predicts that 30 Dec 2100 will be the end of the major inundation and great mutation events stage of history.
If a major event like a Comet striking the earth is supposed to happen, where are the references of this momentous event in the writings of Nostradamus? In his quatrain I.69 Nostradamus described this event without mentioning the word 'Comet' directly. Elsewhere, he used the word 'Comet' or 'Bearded Star' but avoided any direct reference to the comet striking the earth. But there are many quatrains spread all over his book, which describe the after-effects or side effects of the comet strike, e.g. huge and sudden floods, earthquakes, 'fire from the sky', falling of 'red hail' etc. Many of these quatrains are usually interpreted as describing the use of nuclear weapons, but a closer scrutiny would reveal that these quatrains are referring to something more than a nuclear war.
C.1 Q.046 — Very near Auch, Lectoure and Mirande [all 30-odd miles west of Toulouse]; a great fire will fall from the sky for three nights. The cause will appear both stupefying and marvelous; shortly afterwards there will be an earthquake.
Hidden in the first line of this verse we have one of the two occurrences of an anagram for meteorites (estoretMir), a truly apt bit of additional information. But in the line is also found Meteorites rained spread to remotest.ordinate pasture. Both the visible and the hidden words are talking of the extent of an object that falls from the sky.
C.2 Q.043 — During the appearance of the bearded star. The three great princes will be made enemies: struck from the sky, peace earth quaking, Po, Tiber overflowing, serpent placed upon the shore.
This indicates that three religious leaders (princes/kings) will fall out causing a great war just before the onset of the greatest flood of all times. The verses also link together providing a framework for the order of the events which include fire in the sky, destruction of pastoral lands, earthquakes, pestilence and flood.
C.9 Q.069 — On the hilltops of Bailly and the Bresle. The proud one of Grenoble will be hidden, Beyond Lyons and Vienne on them a very great hail; Lobster on the land not a third thereof will remain.
If we take Nostradamus words as valid then we must place this verse amongst those which relate to his great theme of floods that are so high that almost all lands are covered. If we do so it builds a picture that has a creditable scientific consistency since the places mentioned in this verse define an altitude (170-220m) at which a rise in sea-level would leave about a third of the land area of France uncovered. This means he saw a flood of just over 200m high!
Nostradamus also predicted an Islamic invasion of Europe as these maps describe:
While this map features some actual quatrain-numbers, the detailed predictions for the campaigns in Spain, Italy and France will be shown on the more local maps that follow.
The campaign now spreads across southern Spain towards France:
At about the same time, Italy, too is invaded from the south:
And so France, too, is duly attacked from both directions:
Indeed, France — and, not least, Paris — seems to be the principal target of the invaders — but the proposed invasion seems not to cross the Channel to England.
The general context, then, is quite clear. There is to be an invasion of Europe from the south and south-east by Arab/Muslim forces — whether massed military ones (which is what Nostradamus clearly envisaged) or simply groups of terrorists.
What Nostradamus didn't realise (I assume) was the tenacity of the religion:
Islam requires its followers to obey the God of the Koran (Allah) and the prophet Mohammed (the Messenger). The Koran teaches that humanity must be converted to Islam, or at least come under the jurisdiction of Shari'ah (Islamic law) for God's will to be done on earth. Muslims are required to work toward this goal either through Jihad or through the use of gradualism. It is important to understand that both are tools of the Islamic war. Mohammed himself used both methods to effect his jihad. Although we easily recognize the jihad of violence, we must also recognize and come to understand the jihad conducted through gradualism.
There is a new Muslim conquest of Europe underway — but this time, it is a peaceful invasion [through gradualism]. Millions of Turks, Arabs, Algerians and other Muslims have immigrated to European countries, seeking employment and a better life. Often they begin as guest workers before becoming permanent residents. For years, these workers were largely welcomed by nations that needed their lower-cost labor. Increasingly, however, immigrant Muslim populations in Europe are growing to the point that they have become a major cultural and political force affecting their host countries. Rather than assimilate, they are testing the limits of European tolerance — and social tensions are growing.
In 1970, according to the World Christian Encyclopedia, there were 20 percent more Roman Catholics around the world than there were Muslims. By 2000, this proportion had almost reversed; there were 1.20 billion Muslims worldwide, compared to just 1.06 billion Roman Catholics. And Islam is growing, both through births and conversions, at a rate far greater than Roman Catholicism.
This shift is particularly visible in France. Demographers note that among French youth, the percentage of Muslims is much higher than among the general French population. In a recent column, commentator Cal Thomas speculated, "At current rates, the Muslim population will grow… to a majority in 25 years. French culture, possibly French secularism and liberty, cannot be sustained in the face of such demographic facts" ("Lessons Learned," January 11, 2006).
Journalists in Western Europe continue to depict them as 'refugees' fleeing war in Syria. The description is false. According to statistics released by the European Union, only twenty-five percent of them come from Syria; the true number is probably lower. The Syrian government sells passports and birth certificates at affordable prices. The vast majority of migrants come from other countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Eritrea, Somalia, and Nigeria.
Many do not seem to have left in a hurry. Many bring new high-end smartphones and large sums of cash, ten or twenty thousand euros, sometimes more. Many have no passports, no ID, and refuse to give fingerprints.
Whenever people flee to survive, the men come with whole families: women, children, elders. Here, instead, more than 75% of those who arrive are men under 50; few are women, children or elders.
As Christians are now the main targets of Islamists (the Jews fled or were forced out decades ago), the people escaping the war in Syria should be largely composed of Christians. But Christians are a small minority among those who arrive, and they often hide that they are Christians.
Those who enter Europe are almost all Muslims, and behave as some Muslims often do in the Muslim world: they harass Christians and attack women. In reception centers, harassing Christians and attacking women are workaday incidents. European women and girls who live near reception centers are advised to take care and cover up. Rapes, assaults, stabbings and other crimes are on the rise.
European people still have the right to vote, but are deprived of most of their power: all important political decisions in Europe are made behind closed doors, by technocrats and professional politicians, in Brussels or Strasbourg.
Any criticism of Islam in Europe is treated as a form of racism, and 'Islamophobia' is considered a crime or a sign of mental illness.
Islam has not melted into a smooth multiculturalism; it is creating increasingly distressing problems that are almost never brought to light.
Muslim criminality across Europe is high. Consequently, the percentage of Muslims in prisons in Europe is high. In France, which has the largest Muslim population in Europe, the prison population is 70% Muslim. Many European prisons have become recruitment centers for future jihadis.
Welfare states have created a government-dependent class in Europe of many people who live permanently on social benefits. These people are often Muslim. Much of the time, they are not assimilated – and often show signs of not wanting to assimilate. Many reside in virtually autonomous, so-called no-go zones (e.g. France, the UK, and Germany).
Illegal Muslim migrants are likely to join the Muslims already living in Europe; and they will remain Muslim. They will live on social benefits until the bankruptcy of welfare states. They will reside in the 'no-go zones', and the 'no-go zones' will continue to grow. Their occupants come from countries where Christians and women are mistreated; in Europe, they are already mistreating Christians and women.
They come from countries where Western civilization is despised and where hatred of Jews is inescapable — and this remains so among Muslims already living in Europe. For more than two decades, almost all assaults against Jews in Europe were committed by Muslims.
As Sepp was called up to war he said "he wouldn't come back because he has to die in ice and snow". As it happened, he perished during the First World War in the Dolomites. "This is not the last war", Sepp said, "because then soon there will be another, and only after that the last one comes. This last one is more terrible than the other one. To know what it will be like at the time, you will be able to talk to your cousin in Vienna from your own house, and if you needed him rapidly he could be with you within one hour.
"The bohemian forest will one day be burned like a straw barn. Don't run away when the grey birds are flying. If you see this, know that the end is near and it has already begun. It will then be like one hundred years ago. So much the people are thrown back and with this they will be punished for their wantonness.
"You have the meal in front of you and are not allowed to eat it, because it brings you death; and you have the water and may not drink it, because it would also mean your death. From the Osser [mountain on the German/Czech border, north of Lohberg] there will still be a water source — there you can drink. The air corrodes into the skin like a poison. Put on all the clothing you have and don't even let the tip of your nose remain uncovered. Place yourself into a hole and wait till it is all over. It will not last long. Or look for a cave in the mountains. When you loose your hair it has gotten you. Take a Kronwittbirl [Juniper fruit] into the mouth. This will help. And don't drink milk for (at least) eight weeks.
"It will be bad, and the later-born ones will have to learn writing and reading anew. The cause will be that the people do not recognize the Devil anymore, because he is dressed beautifully and promises everything to them.
"When no owl cries any more and the hares come to the house and collapse, then go away from the water and don't mow grass. In these times there will be no more border against Bavaria, where the border will be I cannot say." [Wudy lived in Bohemia, few miles away from the border to Bavaria. This border doesn't exist anymore since the Czechs joined the European Union.]
"However, what do I say? It does not concern you but tell it to your children and grandchildren. They will have to face it and will experience the rest of the story. I also do not understand those that have no modesty at all. People will become increasingly base and godless, so things must come to a head. In the end [Europe] will be like [it was] one hundred years ago. I see even more, but I can't understand it and can't tell it. With the decline of faith everything goes downhill, and everything gets confused. Nobody sees clearly. The elite already believe nothing at all, the masses will be made crazy. In the church they play dance music and the parson will sing to it. Then they also dance, but outside there will be the celestial sign, which announces the beginning of great mischief. There will be a brightness in the north, like never seen before, and then the fire will rise up all around.
"Go to Bavaria, where blessed Mary protects the people; but there too all will be chaotic. Everything will come like the Stormberger has told, but he didn't tell everything or they didn't understand him. Because it will be worse than bad."
"Farmer, tell this to your children: they shall run to the mountain when everything crashes. I'm only a farmhand and I don't know if it's a good or bad spirit which is showing me all these things. But I know it will happen."
"Everything starts when a large bird or a fish flies over the forest [A big airship flew over the Bavarian forest just before the First World War.] — then the war comes, and a further one and then the last one will come. When does it come?
"Your children will not experience it, but your grandchildren may see the beginnings. The Reds [the original German word is "Rotjankerl" = red jackets] will come on the new roads. But they do not come across the Danube. A great war will come. A small one begins it, and a big one comes across the water and makes an end to it. The war will come from the east and will end in the west, the last war will be the total destroyer [der Bankabraeumer]. When you do not understand the people you meet, it is not far to the terrible day. Humans have never seen so many fires and felt so much iron before. Everything will be in disorder. Those who survive must have an iron determination. But the fighting will not last long. Nothing will help those involved, even if they believe again and pray to God. They will become ill and no humans will be able to help them. It will not last for a long period of time. It will all happen so rapidly that nobody can believe it, but there is much blood and many corpses. It will happen so rapidly that one who has two loaves of bread under his arm and drops one of them, does not need to bend down to pick it up because one loaf will be enough. The war will not be over until the death birds stop flying. When you afterwards find a cow beside the Danube, the cow should be given a golden bell.
"Those who begin anew will build a church and praise God. Those who survived will say to each other "Brother, are you still living?" and will greet each other with "Jesus Christ be praised!" This will not exclusively be only with us, but all over the whole world, and right will become right again and the peace will govern a thousand years."
"Two or three decades after the first war it will come a second war still larger. Almost all the nations of the world will be involved. Millions of men will die without being soldiers. Fire will fall from the sky and many great cities will be destroyed. And after the end of the Second Great War, a third universal conflagration will come. There will be weapons totally new. In one day more men will die than in all previous wars. The battles will be accomplished with artificial weapons. Gigantic catastrophes will happen. Overnight it will take place — in a pub in Zwiesel many people will be together, and outside the soldiers will ride over the bridge. The people will run out into the forest. Those, who hide themselves at the "Fuchsenriegel" or at the "Falkenstein" remain spared."
[Regretfully I have no literal version of his predictions, but he is quite well known for accurately predicting the sinking of the Titanic and naming one of its victims, millionaire John Jacob Astor VI. Johansson foresaw the events of World War I, accurately predicted San Francisco's earthquake of 1906 and a volcanic eruption in 1902 that demolished the city of St. Pierre, Martinique. He said the Third World War would break out at "the end of July, beginning of August." He further added: "I do not know the year."
Johansson predicted the following details:
Here is an excerpt from Fate of the Nations, by Arthur Prieditis:
These predictions are remarkable, describing the history of Bohemia from the First World War on.
Or a slightly different version:
"Everything will come in such a way, because the humans will leave God, and God will leave and purify them. When they think to be supposed to copy God creation the end is there. When does it happen? It will last for a long time and still much water will go down the Moldau. But when it comes, it will happen like a lightning into the anthill, and it will also not forget the shepherds."....."A new war will break out, this will be the shortest. The people will destroy the world and the world will destroy the people. The revenge comes from across the large water. From across the large water the war will come, and the iron horses will destroy the Bohemian earth."..."It does not last longer than one needs to say Amen. The wild hunt roars over the earth. The deathbirds cry in the sky. O you powerful and enormous, you will be smaller than the poor shepherd."...."A sun will fall and the earth will tremble."....."The people in Bohemian will be destroyed by the war, and everything in the country will be buried. Twice the Bohemian land will be sieved: the second time only as much Czechs will remain as there is place on one hand. But there won't be rather peace in Europe, before Prague is not a heap of rubble. On the cherryblossom Prague will be destroyed again. Nobody of us will know anything, and the shepherd will push his stick into the soil and will say: Here was Prague."..."When for the second time the cherries mature, the refugees from Bohemian sadly return again to their sirs, their looms and fields. But it won't be many. And these few will ask each other: Where did you hide, and where you? And the country of the Bavarian has to suffer much."...."All over the world will be a new age, which will be called the golden one."
Again there are dark Times. In the Year in which two Fives are across Nineteen, and on the Day of holy Veronica [Used to be 13Jan or 04Feb. Now St. Veronica Feast Day is 12Jul] will Mankind Scream in Fear out into the World, and the End of Prague will certainly happen. The Earth will be raped and God will hold a horrible trial.
Nothing compares previously to anything like this. Out of East there comes a Dragon, who looks gross. Out of his 9 Tongues and 99 Eyes there will shoot deadly lightning and out of his open Mouth there will blow a poisonous Breath. Prague, my dear Prague, you will find a rare and terrible end. A breath goes through your lanes, sweet and warm; surprised mankind will feel it. With horribly distorted faces thousands begin to rest and freeze despite the warmth. It comes to the end. Ten musty bells of the last church clang in the air. The slow and muddy tides of the Moldau [Moldau or Vltava river, Prague] roll as a terrible hurricane roars across the country, across the city. Yellow-grey dust and heavy, poisonous clouds take the breath from humans and cattle. The Hradschin [the Castle District of Prague] is set on fire, in the city the walls burst. Everywhere fire rages. The earth trembles, vibrated by the mighty quake. Deep gaps do open, devouring the dead and the living. The graves open as ransacked by spirit hands, and the skeletons smile with cruel laughter. Everything sinks in the unfathomably black depth.
From Vysehrad [the old castle of Prague] a tremendous fireball comes along, rocks fly through the air and all around blazes a sea of fire. Everything that mankind's diligence has created lies in debris and ash. One can only hear the roar of the storm. Life has gone out. I only see rubble and corpses. Slowly the clouds disappear where once the proud cathedral dome had been. I see a bloody-red fireball. It is over! Prague, your fate has been fulfilled! Where are your houses, proud city? Why do gloomy tides flood the coasts of a deserted heath? Horrible worms eat body and spirit with frightening effect. Weeds and ruins and a poisonous cloud characterizes the countryside. Is this the harvest of the human seed?
Gottfried von Werdenberg describes a potentially related vision by the Seer of Waldviertel in his book, VISION 2004:
THE RAIN OF FIRE
There will be a cosmic event most definitely before WW3 [note that the Waldviertler and the commentator Werdenberg consider "WW3" to be the Russian invasion of Europe — major wars in the Middle East and the Balkans will be going on beforehand, they admit, wars WE might consider to be a part of WW3, but that most European prophets do not].
It will be a beautiful summer's day in Austria; no cloud to be seen in the sky. People in the village are excited; they look towards the sun which begins to darken. It is approximately 10 o'clock normal time, not summer time. [This indicates they are looking south-east — towards the far eastern Mediterranean Sea or perhaps Istanbul or the south of the Black Sea — this is where it comes from.] Whilst the sun is getting darker, dusk is covering the earth. It is not the usual solar eclipse but a kind of fog in the universe far outside of our atmosphere.
The sky is getting darker. At first there are only a few stars, then more and more appear. One is able to see them at first in the west, then in the north. There are no stars in the east and in the south where the sun was last seen. There is no moon. It is a normal clear sky illuminated by the light of the stars. One is still able to identify the ground, but one cannot read any writing.
Suddenly the stars disappear. Complete darkness is covering the earth. A few minutes pass; now it is getting brighter. One is able to see the surrounding area. There is no sun. Billions of white dots can be observed in the East. It is like a rain of glowing fire moving from East North East to West South West very quickly. It is hitting the ground like a heavy fall of hail. The glow turns from white to yellow then to glowing red before hitting the ground. They fall in distances of 50m (165 ft) to 100m (330 ft) apart; they make no noise.
When they hit the ground they look like dust particles or grains of sand. Some are as big as a child's fist. The villagers do not seek cover; they do not appear to be afraid. The time between the sighting of the particles in the North East and their hitting the ground is a matter of seconds, maximum a minute or so.
Once the particles hit the ground, it becomes bright again. A fierce storm begins to blow now from the East and creates fire; it drives before it the fierce fire. The grass is burning; forests are burning; fields are burning; barns, sheds, and farm buildings are on fire; houses and factories are burning, too. The sun will not shine again on this day.
The cause of the rain of glowing fire might be a comet, directly or indirectly responsible for it. The seer is unable to tell. The time of year is the summer, probably the first half of August. The year is not given but it could be any year from 1995 onwards.
Here is what the German seer revealed when interviewed in the 1950s:
Everything calls peace. Schalom! Then it will occur — a new Middle East war suddenly flares up, big naval forces are facing hostility in the Mediterranean — the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkans: I see a 'large one' falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him — then impact is on impact.
Two men kill a third high-ranked. They were paid by other people. One of the murderers is a small black man, the other a little bit taller, with bright-coloured hair. I think it will be at the Balkans, but I cannot say it exactly.
After the murder of the third it starts overnight. I see quite clearly three numbers, two eights and a nine. But I cannot say what it means and cannot state a time. The war begins at sunrise. He comes along very rapidly. The farmers sit in the pub playing cards, when the foreign soldiers look through the windows and doors. Quite black an army comes from the east, but however everything occurs very rapidly. I see a three, but I do not know if it means three days or three weeks.
Massed units march from the East into Belgrade and move forward into Italy. Thereafter three armoured wedges immediately advance with lightning speed in the north of the Danube over West Germany towards the Rhine — without preliminary warning. This will occur so unexpectedly that the population flees full of panic to the west. Many cars clog the roads — if they had stayed at home or would have not used the main streets. Everything, which will be an obstacle for the rapidly advancing tanks on high-speed motorways and other fast motorways, will be down-rolled. I cannot see the Danube bridges above Regensburg anymore. Hardly anything remains of the big city Frankfurt. The Rhine Valley will be devastated, mainly by air.
I see three spearheads coming. The Russian does not stop anywhere, while running in his three wedges. Day and night they run in order to reach the Ruhr-district, where the many furnaces and fireplaces are. Day and night the Russians run, inexorably their target is the Ruhr-district.
Immediately the revenge comes from across the large water. However the yellow dragon invades in Alaska and Canada at the same time. But he comes not far.
And then it rains a yellow dust in a line. When the golden city [Prague] is destroyed, it begins. Like a yellow line it goes up to the city in the bay [Amsterdam]. It will be a clear night, when they begin to throw it. The tanks are still driving, but those who sit in these tanks become quite black. Where it falls down, everything will become quite dead, no tree, no bush, no cattle, no grass, this becomes withered and black. The houses still exist. I don't know what it is and so I cannot tell it. It is a long line. Who goes over this line, dies. Then everything in the spearheads breaks down. Nobody will come back anymore.
The airplanes drop a yellow powder between the Black Sea and the North Sea. Thus a death strip is created, straight from the Black Sea to the North Sea, as wide as half of Bavaria. In this zone no grass can grow let alone humans live. The Russian supply is interrupted.
From the east there are many caterpillars. But in the caterpillars everybody is already dead, although the vehicles keep rolling on, in order to gradually stop automatic. At the Rhine the attack is finally repelled. From the three spearheads no soldier will come home anymore.
The pilots throw off their small black boxes. They do explode, before they touch the soil, and spread a yellow or green smoke or dust. What comes into contact with this becomes dead, whether it is human, animal or plant. For one year no organism is allowed to enter this area, otherwise it will expose itself to the largest mortal danger…
These boxes are satanic. When they explode, a yellow or green dust or smoke arises, everything that comes in contact to it, is dead. The humans become quite black and the meat falls off their bones, so sharply is the poison. Nobody from these three armies will come home anymore.
Then I see someone flying, coming from the east, who drops something into the large water, so that something strange will happen. The water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down, then everything is inundated. The whole action will not last long, I see three lines — three days, three weeks, three months, I don't know exactly but it won't last long.
There is an earthquake. The southern part of England slips into the water. One part disappears, when the thing falls into the sea…The countries at the sea are endangered of the water heavily, the waves go high as a house; it foams, as if it would boil. Islands disappear. A part of the proud island sinks, if the thing falls into the sea, which the pilot drops. Then the water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down. What this thing is, I do not know. When it comes, I do not know.
During the war the big darkness comes, which last 72 hours. It will become dark at a day during the war. Then a hail impact, consisting of lightening and thunder, breaks out and an earthquake vibrates the earth. Please do not go out of the house at this time. The lights do not burn, except candle light, the current stops. Who inhales the dust, gets a cramp and dies. Do not open the windows, cover it completely with black paper…Outside the death by dust goes around, many humans die. After 72 hours everything is over. But again: Do not go out of the house, do not look out of the windows, and keep the candle light burning. And pray. Overnight there will die more humans than in the two world wars before.
Do not open the windows during the 72 hours. The cattle falls, the grass becomes yellow and dry, the humans will become quite yellow and black. The wind drives the clouds of death off to the east.
The city with the iron tower [Eiffel Tower — Paris, France] becomes the victim of its own people. They ignite everything. Revolution is, and everything is going wildly.
The large city with the iron tower is on fire. But this has been done by its own people, not by those who came from the east. And in Italy it is going wildly too. They kill many people there and the Pope flees, but many clergymen will be killed, many churches collapse.
In Russia a revolution breaks out and a civil war. The corpses are so much that you cannot remove them off the roads anymore. The large ones among the party leaders commit suicide and in the blood the great guilty is washed off… I see a red mass mixed with yellow faces, it is a general riot and horrible killing.
The cross comes to honours anew. The Russian people believe in God anew. They sing the Easter song and burn candles in front of sacred pictures. By the prayers of Christianity the monster from hell dies; also the young people believe anew in the intercession of the God's mother.
If everything is over, a part of the inhabitants have died, and the people are frightened of God anew.
The laws, which bring death to the children, become invalid. Then peace will be. A good time. The Pope, who had not to flee across the water for a long time, returns. When the flowers bloom in the meadows, he will return and mourn for his murdered brothers. After these events a long, lucky time comes. But the people have to begin there, where their grandfathers began.
"What's Ahead? A Musician's Prophecies of World Events" by Vincent Lopez, published in 1944 by David McKay Company. Some of the accurate predictions in this book were:
Some of the misses were:
Possible in the future:
Predicted a great war between Japan and America as well as a new European world war [both happened in WW2]. Also this prophecy::
England's most noted prophet in the early part of the 20th century was Count Louis Hamon, who wrote under the name of Cheiro. In his 1927 book Cheiro's World Predictions, he correctly prophesied that Germany and Italy would go to war against France and England. Here is what he predicted about earth changes and Atlantis:
Medium Anthony Neate, channeled an entity named Helio-Arcanophus, who claimed to be a king of ancient Atlantis. Neate's group, called the Atlanteans, had in 1957, published a prophecy by Helio-Arcanophus about earth changes and Atlantis:
More about Atlantis comes through British medium Eileen Garrett, perhaps the greatest medium of the century. She became well known in America as the founder of the Parapsychology Foundation and the most tested medium of modern times. An even more illustrious questioner at a seance was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes and, in his later years, a celebrated proponent of Spiritualism. Sitting in at the seance was Dr. Abraham Wallace, an expert on metaphysics. Mrs. Garrett was channeling her 12th century Persian entity, Abduhl Latif, who came through primarily to assist in healing. The seance was published in the book Health in 1928 by R. H. Sanders, a physician who consulted with Abduhl Latif about his patients.
In the attic of the Society for Psychical Research in London, back in the days when they were housed at Adam & Eve Mews, Old files have been discovered that contain a prophecy by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Conan Doyle had been channeling communication from his guide Phineas since 1923 and put together a consensus prophecy of material he had received from other mediums in England and America. Shortly before his death in 1930, he wrote a letter, published July 20, 1930, in the London Sunday Express, which summarized the channeled prophecies:
As for the time of these events, Conan Doyle felt they were "very close" but also said that mankind could be saved by returning to spiritual values.
Born Helena von Hahn on 12 August 1831 in Yekaterinoslav, Russian Empire (now Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine). Died 8 May 1891 (aged 59) in London, United Kingdom. She was better known as Helena Blavatsky or Madame Blavatsky.
"We are at the close of the cycle of 5,000 years of the present Aryan Kali Yuga or dark age. This will be succeeded by an age of light. Even now under our very eyes, the new Race or Races are preparing to be formed, and that is in America that the transformation will take place, and has already silently commenced. This Race will be altered in mentality and will move toward a more perfect spiritual existence.
"That the periodical sinking and reappearance of mighty continents, now called Atlantean and Lemurian by modern writers, is not fiction will be demonstrated. It is only in the 20th century that portions, if not the whole, of the present work will be vindicated.
"A world destruction as happened to Atlantis 11,000 years ago will occur. Instead of Atlantis all of England and parts of NW European coast will sink into the sea, in contrast, the sunken Azores region, the Isle of Poseidonis, will again be raised from the sea."
This communication (Credit: Cassiopeia) dates from 1996 and 1998. I have only included the spirit part with my explanations in brackets:
Since you have broached the subject: are you familiar with the 'twin Sun' theory? Theory that the sun is really a double star. [The other part, our Sun's twin, is a Brown,] Dark star. Yes [it doesn't give off light and it has no planets of it's own]. And if it has an elliptical orbit, would it, maybe, like, 'come and go'? Ok, change of direction: Oort cloud and comet cluster and sun twin occasionally passing through the former like a bowling ball through pins. Now, think of how your Biblical prophecies speak of a very terrifying period, followed by an apparent renewal of normalcy, followed by the 'End'. Your Biblical prophecies speak of a period of terror and chaos followed by calm, and then, unexpectedly, amidst seeming overwhelming peace and renewal and prosperity, the end. What would happen if the brown star that is the sun's twin were to get close enough to be illuminated by the sun? [People would panic] And terror and chaos. And when it departs again? [Everything would seem to be fine.] Let us just say that the [comet] cluster [from the Oort cloud] travels much faster than the usual cometary itinerary. And we have spoken of the comet cluster before, and we have told you that this time, it rides the Wave. Yes. This time. You have had the comet cluster before in antiquity, but the wave was last here eons ago. Completion of Grand Cycle. [Okay, we have the 3600 year comet cluster cycle, the Sun twin is another cycle altogether, and then we have the wave, which is a Grand Cycle. So, we have three things causing a transition in nature?] Like 'biorhythms'.
[The Sun's twin is on a] Flat elliptical [orbit]. [The twin] Passes through Oort cloud on orbital journey. Already has done this on its way 'in'. [04Jul98.] Oort cloud is located on outer perimeter orbital plane at distance of approximately averaged distance of 510,000,000,000 miles. Solar system, in concert with 'mother star', is revolving around companion star, a 'brown' star. They are moving in tandem with one another along a flat, elliptical orbital plane. Outer reaches of solar system are breached by passage of brown companion, thus explaining anomalies recently discovered regarding outer planets and their moons. Distance of closest passage roughly corresponds to the distance of the orbit of Pluto from Sun. [Pass will happen in the next] 0 to 14 [years — that is BEFORE July 2012]. Disasters involve cycles in the human experiential cycle which corresponds to the passage of comet cluster. Did you catch the significance of the answer regarding time table of cluster and brown star? Human cycle mirrors cycle of catastrophe. Earth benefits in form of periodic cleansing. Time to start paying attention to the signs. They are escalating. They can even be 'felt' by you and others, if you pay attention. Yes. Magnetic field alteration.
[On 11Jul98, the dark star was in the] Libra Constellation. [The comet cluster is] Not visible. It approaches in 'scatter pattern', indicating that one or two of the members may have already made the circuit. Yes, but not necessarily only one grouping [of comets in the cluster]. Will show up first in the region of the Magellanic Clouds. [The twin is] 56 percent of the mass of the sun. [When the twin approaches the effect on the solar system will be] More like a slight 'wobble' effect. [Perceptible to us on the Earth] Only through measurements. The effect on the physical orientation of the sun from the periodic passage of its companion is to flatten the sphere slightly. This returns to its original spherical shape with the retreat. The sun's gravity increases, thus inhibiting flares. Radiation emits from those cosmic bodies which radiate [the brown star does not radiate]. Its radioactive field is severely limited as the 'fire' went out long ago. It does not give off light. [The Earth will have a full magnetic pole reversal. This] Is caused by disturbances in the mineral content of the substrata rock, brought on by the interaction of Earth with outside forces [such as the twin star]. Pole reversal is cyclical anyway, these events merely serve as trigger mechanism. [The cycle is] 100,000 years, roughly. Your Bible says that there will be many wonders on the Earth and in the Heavens in the last days.
It will be bad…
In my experience
I have listed this here because I have no where else to put this subject. I have personally heard from Spirit that they are worried about the future. They are worried that if too many people die in a short length of time then the huge influx of beings to the Spirit World may cause it to collapse. This means they really are worried that things will get very bad…
Are they trying to prepare us?
There is much ridicule of the Cassiopeia Experiment on the Internet and I have to say that a lot of their beliefs are very weird to me. Particularly weird as the details are supposed to have been communicated to them from Spirit. Without taking this weirdness into account, I get the feeling that Spirit are using the group to broadcast a slightly misleading message. They want us to be conditioned into thinking that the Earth changes are merely a portal for us on Earth (us living people) to move into a new Realm. They want us to accept that when this happens it is the natural progression of the continuity of Earth's existence.
This, I think, is a cleaver ploy. If anything is going to damage the Spirit World then it will be the sudden wave of confused and negative energy brought by millions of suddenly deceased people. This negative wave may be mitigated if the newly dead people think that the Spirit World is the new dimension they have been expecting; then their energy levels will be much more normal and catastrophe may be avoided. Just my thoughts…
As you can see, Spirit are mitigating their future. Trying to get people to think that they will be going to a different dimension. They will go to another dimension, of course the Spirit World. There will be a great dying.
on the tribulations of USA
Following the death of her sister in a car accident in 1969, Gayle Smith from Utah, USA started communicating with her sister's spirit, who visited her in dreams and visions. Subsequently, she developed the ability to communicate with the spirits of her deceased near and dear ones. In 1982 her mother died and in 1987 her spirit started visiting Gayle before a series of deaths in her family. Since January 1993 her mother's spirit started showing her visions of events that will take place beginning with a worldwide economic collapse "that would take place in the month of October". The visions foretell the future of USA — a huge economic collapse, followed by civil war, anarchy, famine and disease. It foretells a terrible World wide war, an invasion of USA by Chinese and Russian forces, use of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, huge earthquake, tsunamis and a comet crashing on the earth. The visions completely tally with what we have interpreted from the Quatrains of Nostradamus and from other prophecies. Here is the vision of Gayle Smith in her own words.
"My mother then started showing me a scenario of events that will take place beginning with a worldwide economic collapse that would take place in the month of October. I asked her if it would be this October and she said that it would take place in October. I pressed her for a year and she asked why I needed to know the year … Concerning the economic collapse, my mother said I would hear rumours and then they will get louder and then the collapse happens real quickly. I was told just recently that we'll go to bed one night and everything will seem fairly normal. We will wake up the next morning and it will have happened. So it will literally happen overnight or over a weekend like Friday to Monday … After the economy collapses I saw marauding bands or gangs running around. People just go crazy and they start rioting, looting and killing because they're angry. Everything they know of value on this earth is being taken away from them within a few short days. We've had so much in this country, more than any other country in the world. They're angry at first and then they go crazy because they're hungry. In a very short period of time there will be a famine like we've never seen before. I believe for the most part this famine is brought upon us. It's premeditated and planned out. No one works. No trucks bring food deliveries. Famine is brought on very quickly as stores are cleaned out within hours. There is nothing to eat so people kill others because they are hungry. After a time they begin to kill because they enjoy it. All of them become very depraved. I saw these marauding bands doing awful sadistic sexual acts, cannibalism, eating people while they are still alive and kicking … A short period of time after the economic collapse we are put under the control of FEMA and martial law. The first thing they do is to close down all the roads and accesses out of the cities. Next they cut communications and conduct house-to-house searches for food, guns and ammunition. I saw them taking warm boots and warm clothing because it was getting cold and winter was coming. The martial law is so oppressive. It is very similar to what the Nazis did to the Jews. I saw them relocating and sorting families, men from the women, women from the children. I saw two lines. Those too old or young or too feeble to work — go to the concentration execution camps — while the others are sent to work camps. They put us under a nighttime curfew and anyone caught out after dark is immediately shot and killed … The next scenario I saw was that the animals turn on people. The Hopi Indians have also suggested this will happen. I saw wild animals coming into the cities just devouring people. I saw mountain lions grouping together, even though they are solitary predators and timid of humans, coming into the city attacking and killing people …There were also diseases so terrible like the Ebola Virus. I saw people bleeding from the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, and from every orifice of the body and dying very quickly. Later I saw that the poles of the earth reversed. Before the pole shift it is very still and quiet. Then I saw such horrendous winds that caused boulders the size of houses to fly through the air as the shift takes place. Anything or anyone above ground will not survive because of the winds. There's nothing left standing over two feet above the ground. I also saw a comet that hits the earth. I don't know where the comet or the pole shift fits into the scenario. I assume they are later because I was shown these things happen after the economic collapse and the earthquakes. I saw the comet hitting the earth but pieces of it coming and hitting the earth before the main part of the comet. That is what the mighty hailstorm is which is talked about in the scriptures. This fiery hail or the hailstorm that destroys all the crops of the earth according to D & C 29 is actually pieces of a comet coming in from the outer regions. I saw this comet hit in the west … I never saw where it hit. All I saw was a flash of white light which lights up the whole sky and then it turns blood red starting from the west going to the east…"
Sarah Hoffman tried to commit suicide in 1979 and was told she had to return and finish her life on Earth. She was shown the visions of the end time which included a horrible vision of destruction in the USA and in other parts of the world.
"This panoramic view of the earth came into view and then came closer and closer like I had been out into space and was flying towards it. I knew that this was to help me make my decision to go back to earth, to my terrible life, because part of me wanted to go back to the beautiful spirit world or paradise and part of me felt the need to go back into my body and change my life. It was kind of a tug of war and what I was going to see was to help me understand what I would go through if I went back into my clay body. It played out again just like a video tape in fast forward motion and yet again I could assimilate and see everything clearly and perfectly. As the world zoomed up to me I saw the whole world and then the various countries. As I looked at these lands I instinctively knew what countries they were. I was looking at the Middle East and watched as a missile flew from Libya and hit Israel with a big mushroom cloud. I knew that the missile was actually from Iran but people from Iran had been hiding it in Libya and fired it. I knew that it was a nuclear bomb … Almost immediately missiles started flying from one country to another, quickly spreading to all over the world. I also saw that many nuclear explosions did not come from missiles but from ground bombs of some kind. I knew that in the future there would be a throughout the world and nuclear war this is how it would start. Then, my focus changed from the Middle East to America. I understood that I was about to see some of the things that would lead up to the nuclear holocaust I had just witnessed. As I looked upon the continent of North America, I zeroed in on the east coast and then to New York. I saw New York with all of its buildings and people. Then I saw some tall buildings crashing to the earth with tremendous smoke, debris and dust everywhere [were these the twin towers of the World Trade Centre I wonder?]. I asked if an earthquake caused the buildings to fall down and the impression was no, but I don´t know what caused them to fall … The next thing that I felt more than I saw was that shortly after this there was no commerce, no shopping, buying, and was impressed that there was no economy. The economy had almost failed completely and no one had any money … The next thing I saw was people being sick and dying. I saw this particularly in four cities, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Salt Lake. The disease started by having white blisters, some the size of dimes appear on their hands, arms and face. This quickly developed into white puffy sores and blisters. They would stumble about and fall and then many died within a short time, maybe 24 hours. I also saw other people with blood coming from their nose, mouth, eyes and ears. It started like a flu virus and it spread very quickly, faster than the other white blister disease. The people who had this disease died even faster. This was more wide spread across the entire United States. There were hundreds of thousands of people stricken with these two diseases. I knew that the diseases, and there were several different kinds, but at first primarily these two, came from small containers that had been brought into the United States. These containers were like quart jars and I was impressed that the people carrying them would just drop them on the ground in large crowds of people and the people would become infected without realizing it. In these cities as the disease spread, the people tried to flee from the cities out to the countryside. There was complete chaos in these cities and a breakdown of normal society. There was no electricity in them either, but I don´t know why or how that came to be. There were cars piled up everywhere, blocking roadways and most people then had to walk out with nothing. The disease started to spread beyond these initial cities. As these people were fleeing the cities, there were gangs attacking them and killing them. In the cities that were struck with the disease, there was complete chaos, looting, rioting, murdering, a complete breakdown. Many people seemed to go absolutely crazy. I sensed that the electricity had failed everywhere now and that nothing was running, there was no communication or anything anywhere in the country. Nothing worked, no radios or TV´s. I watched people throw rocks and break windows to steal TV´s which I thought was really crazy because they would not work … Immediately, as I watched this happen in the United States, I jumped back to the Middle East and saw the same thing in Israel, the same sores and I realized that it was the same types of disease or sickness happening there. I knew somehow that whatever diseases had been used in the United States was also being used in Israel. This lasted for only an instant and I was back in the United States. There was a tremendously long winter that lasted into summer. It caught everyone by surprise and started the full famine. Actually, I realized that the long winter actually just increased the famine greatly to its full measure, because the famine had already been in progress because of the storms, droughts, floods and other plagues that had been happening over the few years leading up to the long winter. During and after the long winter, the disease spread everywhere and increased in severity. The economy was completely gone and the electricity was also gone. There was complete chaos and anarchy all over the United States. There was no government, just a total breakdown. There was no food at all … I saw people trying to get food and were completely panicked because there was no food. I saw people digging in the ground for worms and eating them because they were so hungry. Also, during this time I became aware that there was very little water and that almost all of the water had become poisoned so that if a person drank the water they would get the disease and die. Many did even knowing that they would die, because they were so thirsty. Some of the people seemed to go crazy and went around in gangs killing people just for the sake of killing. Others killed for food or for things but the people who killed just to kill were absolutely terrible. They seemed like beasts, animals completely out of control as they raped, looted, burned and butchered people. I saw them go into people´s homes and drag families out who were hiding there and rape them and butcher them. There was such a fear and hatred that came upon the people… families, wives, husbands… loving ties no longer mattered… it became survival only. Husbands would kill their wives and children for food or water. Mothers would kill their children. It was absolutely horrible beyond description. In the darkness I also saw little fireballs. I don´t know if this happened just before or during the mushroom clouds, but there were millions falling everywhere. They were very hot, of different sizes with most about the size of golf balls. As they fell from the sky they left a streak of flame and smoke behind them. Whatever they touched they started on fire, people, buildings, trees, grass it didn't matter. I didn't ask what they were or where they came from, because by this time I was getting sick of the whole scene and so I just observed and didn't ask many questions. Almost right on top of these mushroom clouds I saw Russian troops invading the United States. I saw them parachuting in to a lot of places, primarily from the East Coast. I saw them parachute into Salt Lake City. I also saw Chinese troops invade from the West Coast, near Los Angeles. The people who were still alive started fighting them with their own guns. I didn't see any (United States) military. This was the nuclear war that I had seen earlier and I knew that it was also happening all over the world like I had seen previously. I did not see much of this war, but I was impressed that it was not very long and the Russians and Chinese lose, but I don´t know how exactly. Now the smoke turned to a very thick, heavy dark smoke. Just as things appeared to be as bad as it could get, then the earthquakes happened. This happened during a winter. It seemed that this was the winter following the very long one and so the chaos had been almost for a full year. The earthquakes seemed to start in the West, around Idaho and Wyoming and then quickly spread everywhere. I saw a huge earthquake strike Utah and then California. There were earthquakes all over California, but were especially devastating in Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. These earthquakes triggered volcanoes all over the West. They started spewing a tremendous amount of ash and smoke into the air and the air became very dark and dirty. The sun was darkened even more because of the smoke and the ash that started raining down everywhere. I also saw huge waves of water sweep over the West Coast and then I realized that it was happening all over the coastal cities of the entire world. Los Angeles was almost swept completely away. The waves were huge. I saw a big wall of water, taller than many of the buildings, perhaps as high as 20 feet, sweep over Salt Lake City. I thought this was strange because it was so far from the ocean and I thought how could a wave from the ocean travel all the way to Salt Lake City. I was impressed that it was not from the ocean but from the ground. I quickly saw great cracks in the earth around Salt Lake City open up and water just shot out of the ground. I felt that under the ground, very deep, there was a tremendous amount of water in the ground and the earthquakes forced it up to the surface. When the water swept over the city, there weren't very many buildings left, in fact there was a tremendous destruction with hardly anything left at all, just a few buildings. The water went from Idaho down to near Cedar City and was very bad. In the cities there was great destruction, and most of the buildings had been destroyed and there was a lot of rubble. Though the earthquakes, disease, floods, volcanoes, tidal waves killed a lot of people, most people died because of the gangs and everyone killing each other… not from the terrible devastation. Because of the volcanoes erupting everywhere, there was now ash mixed with the heavy smoke. Ash was falling and it was almost complete darkness everywhere. The diseases had become very bad… I saw people literally die on their feet. There was another disease I saw. They had these red blotches on them and then they quickly started bleeding everywhere, from every opening. Then, they literally disintegrated or melted into unrecognisable masses of flesh and bone. I cannot even begin to describe what I saw. The dead were everywhere. After this terrible winter, I saw the survivors pile up the dead into huge piles and burn them. The smell was absolutely terrible. I could smell it just a little and the smell itself would make you sick This burning of bodies had happened a little during the chaos, but not much because people were so worried about surviving that they just ignored the dead. I then saw four more things. I saw a huge earthquake in the middle of the United States. It was tremendous and seemed to split the United States in half about where the Mississippi River is. The crack in the earth that resulted was huge and that area totally sinks. It is miles wide and it opens up and the earth falls down. It seemed to swallow everything. Then water flowed in from the Gulf of Mexico all the way up to the Great Lakes, only they weren't lakes anymore, they became all part of a big inland sea. I then saw a series of tremendous earthquakes all over the world. But it wasn't lots of separate earthquakes, it was all part of one huge, gigantic earthquake that shakes the entire earth. Because of this earthquake, waters come upon the land all over the world. Huge walls of water along all of the coasts. This earthquake and the walls of water make the earlier ones seem small by comparison. I don´t know if the earthquake that split the United States into two parts was part of this worldwide quake or not. I then saw a tremendous wind come upon the earth. As the wind hit I saw people go into caves and into the cracks of rocks to escape it. It was tremendous and it blew trees and everything away. It appeared to be stronger than any hurricane or tornado. It seemed like everything was blown away. I understood, without asking, that the great worldwide earthquake and the wind were somehow caused by a huge object, like a planet or something, that had come very close by the earth and disrupted everything and that it was near the end that this happened. I then was back into space viewing the entire earth from a distance. I then saw this huge fireball, two or three times bigger than the earth approach the earth. It was extremely bright red and gold in colour and then engulfed the entire earth. When I saw this, because it was so different than everything else, I then asked what it was. I was impressed that it was the burning of the earth that is described in the scriptures … The only people left were the few wicked who had survived the devastation earlier, but there were not many."
In Howard Storm's book, My Descent into Death (2000), he describes the future of mankind as given to him by light beings he encountered during his NDE in 1985. He was told:
"If the United States continues to exploit the rest of the world by greedily consuming the world's resources, the United States will have God's blessing withdrawn. Your country will collapse economically which will result in civil chaos. Because of the greedy nature of the people, you will have people killing people for a cup of gasoline. The world will watch in horror as your country is obliterated by strife. The rest of the world will not intervene because they have been victims of your exploitation. They will welcome the annihilation of such selfish people. The United States must change immediately and become the teachers of goodness and generosity to the rest of the world. Today the United States is the primary merchant of war and the culture of violence that you export to the world. This will come to an end because you have the seeds of your own destruction within you. Either you will destroy yourselves or God will bring it to an end if there isn't a change."
"I asked how 'America's purification' would come about, and they said it would be simple, that our society is very dependent on a lot of very fragile things — energy grid, transportation. In each geographical area of the United States people used to be relatively self-sufficient as far as agricultural products. Now, how long would any state survive without the transport of food and energy?
"What would happen is these very complex and delicate grids of our economic system would begin to break down. We've created a society of such cruel and self-centered people that the very nature of civilization would begin to break down. The angels showed me that what would happen is that people would begin robbing the grocery stores, hording goods, and killing one another for gasoline and tires, and as a consequence everything would break down and would end up in chaos."
In 1975, the following prophecies were given to Dannion Brinkley during his NDE:
In 1943, at the age of 20, Dr. George G. Ritchie, Jr., M.D., (25 Sep 1923 - 29 Oct 2007) was a private in the Army stationed in Texas awaiting a transfer to Richmond to study medicine at the Medical College of Virginia to become a doctor for the military. However, he got sick with pneumonia and died. Ritchie then returned to life with one of the most important and profound NDEs every documented. Ritchie saw increasing natural disasters on Earth (hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, volcanoes); families splitting and governments are breaking apart because of people thinking only of themselves; and armies marching on the U.S. from the south. He also saw explosions occurring all over the world of a magnitude beyond our capacity to imagine. He was told that if they continued, human life as we have known it will not exist.
On July 2, 1984 he had a near-death experience resulting from a heart attack after a heated — almost murderous — fist fight with a business associate.
"Fanatical, self-proclaimed religious groups supposedly acting in the name of God performed many of these acts, but I was told that acts of war and aggression were not part of God’s plan."
"I was shown a vision of a large plateau in the Middle East. The plateau was surrounded by a dusty, dry, and barren region that seemed to be deserted and devoid of any life. I was told that future events at this location in the Middle East would start a chain reaction of man-made catastrophic events, first in the Middle East, then in Africa and Europe, followed by events in Russia and China.
"The Lady of Light showed me another scene of Earth suspended in space. I watched as the axis of Earth's rotation began to shift significantly. I could not tell how much time the shift took, nor was I shown a time or date when it would take place. I could tell that significant geophysical changes to the Earth's surface would take place as a result of the shifting of Earth's axis. Great earthquakes erupted throughout the world, significantly changing the major continents. There were volcanic eruptions of great magnitude spewing clouds of billowing smoke and ash throughout the atmosphere, sending the Earth into a period of darkness. Great floods resulted from melting and shifting polar ice caps. Many low-lying land areas were engulfed by huge tidal waves. I watched scenes of these events taking place, depicted like black and white movies. I watched one scene from a hilltop location on the coastline of Long Island, New York, as rows of massive tidal waves descended on the coastline, burying the land under the water. I saw another scene from a street corner in New York City. A wall of water rushed down the wide street as surrounding office buildings began to collapse. In another scene, I watched as a massive wall of water hit the coastline of Miami Beach. In its wake, I watched as an entirely new land mass rose up out of the ocean."
In 1950 a celebrated Brazilian medium named Hercilio Maes channeled a prophecy from his guide Ramatis. As quoted by Pedro McGregor in Jesus of the Spirits (1967), Maes predicts that the earth's axis will change through ninety degrees due to the gravitational pull of an enormous new planet which will enter our solar system soon. "Entire continents such as Europe will be completely destroyed and vanish forever beneath the new oceans which will form. North and South Poles will be totally de-iced and man will find unimaginable riches to help him form the new humanity of the third Millennium."
Reputedly was born Ursula Sontheil in 1488 in Norfolk, England, and died in 1561. She exhibited prophetic and psychic abilities from an early age. At 24, married to Toby Shipton, she eventually became known as Mother Shipton.
The visions of Joe Brandt in 1937. The man who wrote this was a personal friend of the publisher at the time. The article is given as he wrote it in 1937, in boyish handwriting. He had fallen from a horse at age 17 and for days he had a concussion. During this period of time a continuing dream came night after night. It was as though he were viewing a tremendous earthquake and inundation in California and other parts of the world.
THE MOMENT OF THE HAPPENING
Where have I been. Where haven't I been! I've been to the ends of the earth and back. I've been to the end of the world. There isn't anything left. Not even Fresno, even though I'm lying here right this minute. If only my eyes would get a little clearer so I can write all this down. Nobody will believe me, anyway.
I'm going back to that last moment on the Blvd. Some sweet kid went past, dragging a little boy (twins, I guess) by each hand. Her skirt was up — well, pretty high — and she had a tired look. I thought for a minute I could ask her about the birds, what had happened to them, and then, I remembered she didn't see me. Her hair was all frowzy, way out all over her head. A lot of them looked like that, but she looked so tired and like she was sorry about something. I guess she was sorry BEFORE it happened, because it surely did happen.
There was a funny smell. I don't like it. A smell like sulphur, sulphuric acid, a smell like death. For a minute, I thought I was back in chem. (chemistry). When I looked around for the girl, she was gone. I wanted to find her for some reason. It was if I knew something was going to happen and I could stay with her, help her. She was gone, and I walked half a block, then saw the clock again. My eyes seemed glued on that clock. I couldn't move. I just waited. It was FIVE MINUTES TO FOUR O'CLOCK ON A SUNNY AFTERNOON. I thought I would stand there looking at that clock forever waiting for the something to come.
Then, when it came, it was nothing. It was just nothing. It wasn't nearly as hard as the earthquake we had two years ago. The ground shook, just an instant. People looked at each other, surprised. Then they laughed, I laughed too. So this was what I had been waiting for. This funny little shake. It meant nothing. I was relieved and I was disappointed. What had I been waiting for? I started back up the Blvd., moving my legs like those kids. How do they do it?
I never found out. I felt as if the ground wasn't solid under me. I knew I was dreaming and yet I wasn't dreaming. There was that smell again — coming like from the ocean. I was getting to the 5 and 10 (Newberry's?) and I saw the look on the kids' faces. Two of them were right in front of me, coming my way. Both with beards. One with earrings. One said: "let's get out of this place. Let's go back East." He seemed scared. It was as if the sidewalks were trembling — but you couldn't seem to see them. Not with your eyes you couldn't. An old lady had a dog, a little white dog, and she stopped and looked scared, and grabbed him in her arms and said," Let's go home, Frou, Frou. Mamma is going to take you home." That poor old lady, hanging on to her dog. I got scared. Real scared.
I remembered the girl. She was way down the block, probably. I started to run. I ran and ran, and the ground kept trembling. But I couldn't see it. I couldn't feel it. But I knew it was trembling. Everybody looked scared. They looked terrible. One young lady just sit down on the sidewalk all doubled up. She kept saying "earthquake, it's THE earthquake." over and over. But I COULDN'T SEE THAT ANYTHING WAS DIFFERENT.
Then, when it came. How it came. Like nothing in God's world. Like nothing. It was the scream of a siren, long and low, or the scream of a woman I heard having a baby when I was a kid. It was awful. It was as if something — some monster — was PUSHING UP THE SIDEWALKS. You felt it long before you saw it, as if the sidewalks wouldn't hold anymore. I looked out at the cars. They were honking but not scared. They just kept moving. They didn't seem to know yet that anything was happening. Then, that white car, that baby half-sized one, came sprawling from the inside lane right against the curb. The girl who was driving just sat there. She sat there with her eyes staring, as if she couldn't move, but I could hear her. She whimpered. Like a little girl. She made funny noises. I watched her, thinking of the other girl.
I said that it was a dream and I would wake up. But I didn't wake up. But I didn't wake up. The shaking had started again, but this time different. It was a nice shaking, like a cradle being rocked for a minute, and then I saw the middle of the Blvd. seemed to be breaking in two. The concrete looked as if it were being pushed straight up by some giant shovel. it. It was breaking in two. That is why the girl's car went out of control. AND THEN A LOUD SOUND AGAIN, LIKE I'VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE…THEN HUNDREDS OF SOUNDS…ALL KINDS OF SOUNDS… children, and women and those crazy guys with earrings. They were all moving, it seemed, some of them above the sidewalk. I can't describe it. They were LIFTED UP. and the waters kept oozing… oozing. The cries. It was awful. I woke up. I never want to have that dream again.
It came again. Like the first time which was a preview and all I could remember was that it was the end of the world. I was right back there — all that crying. Right in the middle of it. My eardrums felt as if they were going to burst. Noise everywhere. People falling down, some of them bad hurt. Pieces of buildings, chips, flying in the air. One hit me hard on the side of the face, but I didn't seem to feel it.
I wanted only to wake up, to get away from this place. It had been fun in the beginning, the first dream, when I kind of knew I was going to dream the end of the world or something. This was terrible. There were older people in the cars. Most of the kids were in the street. But those old guys were yelling bloody murder, as if anybody could help them… Nobody could help them. Nobody could help them.
It was then that I felt myself lifted up. Maybe I had died. I don't know. But I was over the city. It was tilting toward the ocean — like tilting a picnic table. The buildings were holding, better than you could believe. They were holding. They were holding. The people saw they were holding and they tried to cling to them or get inside. It was fantastic. Like a building had a will of its own. Everything else breaking around them, and they were holding, holding. I was up over them — looking down. I started to root for them. Hold that line, I said. Hold that line. Hold that line. I wanted to cheer, to shout, to scream. If the buildings held, those buildings on the Blvd., maybe the girl — the girl with the two kids — maybe she could get inside.
It looked that way for a long time, maybe three minutes, and three minutes was like forever. Everybody was trying to get inside. They were going to hold. You knew they were going to hold, even if the waters kept coming up. Only they didn't. I've never imagined what it would be like for a building to die. A building dies just like a person. It gives way, some of the bigger ones did just that. They began to crumble, like an old man with palsy, who couldn't take it anymore. They crumble right down to nothing. And the little ones screamed like mad — over and above the roar of the people. They were mad about dying. But buildings die. I couldn't look anymore at the people. I kept wanting to get higher. I kept willing myself to go higher.
Then I seemed to be out of it all, but I could see. I seemed to be up on Big Bear near San Bernardino, but the funny thing is that I could see everywhere. I knew what was happening. The earth seemed to start to tremble again. I could feel it even though I was up high. This time it lasted maybe twelve seconds, and it was gentle. You couldn't believe anything so gentle could cause so much damage. But then I saw the streets of Los Angeles — and everything between the San Bernardino mountains and L. A. It was all tilting toward the ocean, houses everything that was left. I could see the big lanes — dozens of big lanes still loaded with cars — five lanes in one place, and all the cars sliding the same way.
Now the ocean was coming in, moving like a huge snake across the land. I wondered how long it was, and I could see the clock, even though I wasn't there on the Blvd. It was 4:29. It had been half an hour. I was glad I couldn't hear the crying any more. But I could see everything. I could see everything.
THE OTHER CITIES
Then, like looking at a huge map of the world, I could see what was happening on the land and with people. San Francisco was feeling it, but she was not in any way like Hollywood or Los Angeles. I seemed to see it was the GARLOCK FAULT, not just the SAN ANDREAS that was rocking San Francisco. It was moving just like that earthquake movie with Jeanette McDonald and Gable. I could see all those mountains coming together — the Sierra Nevada, and the San Andreas and Garlock.
I knew what was going to happen to San Francisco — it was going to turn over, because of Garlock. It would turn upside down. It went quickly, because of the twisting, I guess. It seemed much faster than Hollywood, but then I wasn't exactly there. I was a long, long way off.
I shut my eyes for a long time — I guess ten minutes — and when I opened them I saw Grand Canyon, that great big gap was closing in, and Boulder Dam was being pushed from underneath. And then, Nevada, and on up to Reno. Way down south, way down Baja, California, Mexico too. It looked like some volcano down there was erupting, along with everything else.
I saw the map of South America, especially Colombia. Another volcano — eruption — shaking violently. Venezuela seemed to be having some kind of volcanic activity. Away off in the distance, I could see Japan, on a Fault, too. It was so far off — not easy to see, because I was still on Big Bear Mountain, but Japan started to go into the sea. I couldn't tell time, then, and the people looked like dolls, far away. I couldn't hear the screaming, but I could see the surprised look on their faces. They looked so surprised. They were all like dolls. It was so far away I could hardly see it. In a minute or two it seemed over. Everybody was gone. There was nobody left.
I didn't know time now. I couldn't see a clock. I tried to see the island of Hawaii. I could just see huge tidal waves… beating against it. The people on the streets were getting wet, and they were scared. But I didn't see anybody going into the sea. I seemed way around the globe. More flooding. Is the world going to be drenched? Constantinople. Black Sea rising. Suez Canal, for some reason seemed to be drying up. SICILY… she doesn't hold. I could see map. Mt Etna is shacking. A lot of this area seemed to go, but it seemed to be earlier or later.
I wasn't sure of time, now. ENGLAND… huge floods — but no tidal waves. Water, water everywhere, but no one going into the sea. People were frightened and crying. Some places they fell in the streets on their knees and started to pray for the world. I didn't know the English were emotional. Ireland, Scotland — all kinds of churches were crowded — it seemed night and day. People were carrying candles and everybody was crying for California, Nevada, parts of Colorado — maybe all of it, even Utah.
Everybody was crying — most of them didn't even know anybody in California, Nevada, Utah, but they were crying as if they were blood kin. Like one family. Like it happened to them. NEW YORK was coming into view — she was still there, nothing had happened, yet water level was way up. Here, things were different. People were running in the streets yelling — "end of world". Kids ran into restaurants and ate everything in sight. I saw a shoe store with all the shoes gone in about five minutes. Fifth Avenue — everybody running. Some radio blasting from a loud speaker that in a few minutes, power might be shut off. They must control themselves. Five girls were running like mad toward the YWCA, that place on Lexington or somewhere. They ran like they were scared to death. BUT NOTHING WAS HAPPENING IN NEW YORK. I saw an old lady with garbage cans, filling them with water. Everybody seemed scared to death. Some people looked dazed. The streets seemed filled with loud speakers. It wasn't daylight. It was night. I saw, like the next day, and everything was topsy turvy. Loud speakers again about fuel tanks broken in areas — shortage of oil. People seemed to be looting markets.
Oregon, Washington, The Dakotas, Missouri, Minnesota, Canada
I saw a lot of places that seemed safe, and people were not scared. Especially the rural areas. Here everything was almost as if nothing had happened. People seemed headed to these places some on foot, some in cars (that still had fuel). I heard — or somehow I knew — that somewhere in the Atlantic land had come up. A lot of land. I was getting awful tired. I wanted to wake up I wanted to go back to the girl — to know where she was — she and those two kids. I found myself back in Hollywood — and it was still 4:29. I wasn't up on Big Bear then — I was perched over Hollywood. I was just there. It seemed perfectly natural in my dream.
T. V., Radio, Ham Operators
I could hear now. I could hear, someplace, a radio station blasting out — telling people not to panic. They were dying in the streets. There were picture stations with movies — some right in Hollywood — these were carrying on, with all the shaking. One fellow ( in the picture (TV) station) was a little short guy who should have been scared to death. But he wasn't. He kept shouting and reading instructions. Something about helicopters or planes would go over — some kind of planes — but I knew they couldn't.
Things were happening in the atmosphere. The waves were rushing up now. Waves. Such waves. Nightmare waves. Then, I saw again, Boulder Dam, going down… pushing together, pushing together breaking apart — No, Grand Canyon was pushing together, and Boulder Dam was breaking apart. It was still daylight. All these radio stations went off at the same time — Boulder Dam had broken. I wondered how everybody would know about it — people back East. That was when I saw the "ham radio operators". I saw them in the oddest places, as if I were right there with them. Like the little guy with glasses. They kept sounding the alarm. One kept saying: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea… Get to the high places. Get to the mountains. All states west — this is California. We are going to the — We are going to the" — I thought he was going to say "sea". But I could see him. He was inland, but the waters had come in. His hand was still clinging to the table, he was trying to get up, so that once again he could say: "This is California we are going into the sea. This is California we are going into the sea." I seemed to hear this, over and over, for what seemed hours — just those words.
They kept it up until the last minute — all of them — calling out "Get to the Mountains — This is California — We are going into the sea." I woke up. It didn't seem as if I had been dreaming. I have never been so tired. For a minute or two, I thought it had happened. I wondered about two things. I hadn't seen all what happened to Fresno (his home) and I hadn't found out what happened to that girl. I've been thinking about it all morning. I'm going home tomorrow. It was just a dream. It was nothing more.
Nobody in the future on Hollywood Blvd. is going to be wearing earrings — and those beards. Nothing like that is ever going to happen. That girl was so real to me — that girl with those two kids. It won't ever happen — but if it did, how could I tell her (maybe she isn't even born yet) to move away from California when she has her twins — and she can't be on the Blvd. that day. She was so real!
The other thing — those ham operators — hanging on like that — over and over — saying the same thing: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to the mountains. Get to the hilltops. California, Nevada Colorado, Arizona, Utah. This is California. We are going into the sea." I guess I'll hear that for days.
According to Lori Toye (in visions in 1983 and 1988), much of Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada. Arizona, Utah, Texas, and Louisiana will disappear underwater. So too will the Mississippi Valley, the Great Lakes, southern Florida, and much of Maine.
"For thousands of years the spiritually enlightened of many cultures have told of a time when the earth would go through great changes in its structure. Changes that would affect every aspect of all cultures. Most of these predictions gave the end of this century as the time period for the events.
"The ’Time of Changes’ is now! The forces within the earth have been in progress for several years and are already manifesting themselves around the globe in many ways…
"The next twelve years will cause you to re-evaluate every aspect of your life. Everything that is not working: economics, politics, religions, personal relationships and values will be restructured. But know this truth, the rewards are there! When these changes are finished and the sky is cleared, the earth and its inhabitants will experience a time of bliss in the spiritual and physical that has never been known in any other Golden Age.
"Many will instantly feel the truth of this information. Some will find it curious, then forget it. Only when they see the first event, the fire in the heavens, will they remember and take action. Some never will. But, we all know inside what we need to experience for our own growth… Time is short. We need to focus on how we may help through this transformation of the Earth…
"The Earth is a living organism like ourselves. This cleansing is a natural process and has happened several times in the past… The changes, although natural, are having divine guidance. The last polar shift and the earth’s relation to other elements within the galaxy, are calculated mathematically. This interdimensional, mathematical alignment principle allows doors to open between the etheric and the physical which have never been possible before. This new math will be given to us soon, and we will have the proof needed to finally connect the spiritual and the scientific into one process…
"The first major event will be a huge meteor shower seen everywhere. From this, a giant fireball will strike the Nevada desert. This event will set an earthquake in motion that will sink the southwest. We will know beforehand. There will be time for evacuation before all the events.
"Three months after the meteorite, California will sink. The smoke from the meteorite, combined with the fires and volcanic activity set into motion, will cover the globe. The sun will be blocked for two years. This ash cover will increase the greenhouse effect, melting the ice caps very rapidly. Heavy rains will fall everywhere. The rains will last for years. Mountains will erode and rivers will swell many times their present size.
"The increased ocean waters bulging at the equator, will cause the earth to become off balanced and shift its polar position. The Pacific coastline will rise. The earthquakes, sinking land, rising ocean and erosion will all contribute to a new coastline of America…
"After the sinking of California, the weight of the rising oceans will cause other earthquakes. One will split the Continental Divide. Two arms of the sea will form on each side of Denver making it a seaport.
"A few years after California disappears, an earthquake will sink central Oregon and Washington… The ocean waters will continue to rise for about four years.
"Yes, there will be similar changes around the globe. America is the great focus of light for the Earth. We are the torch bearers, the people who hold the light for the rest of the world. America will be one of the first to experience the changes and one of the first to overcome it and again hold the light…
"Three polar shifts will occur a few years apart. The excess water at the equator will cause the spinning earth to become unbalanced. As the rising oceans cover the land, the additional weight will cause the land to sink. When the proportion of land to ocean changes, the other shifts occur. The final shift will be in the waters of the Hudson Strait at the south end of Baffin Island, about 2660 kilometres north of New York City…"
"The war will break out in the southeast, but that is only a ruse. Thus the opposition is to be misled; Russia long prepared its plan of attack. Each Russian officer has the movement order already in the bag and waits only for the word. First, the main thrust is effected against Sweden and is directed then against Norway and Denmark."
[A little further on it says:]
"At the same time sections of the Russian army will advance by West Prussia, Saxonia and Thuringia to the Rhine, in order to gain control of Calais and the Channel coast. In the south the Soviet army will join the Yugoslav army. Their armies will confederate to break in to Greece and Italy. The Holy Father must flee. He must flee fast, in order to escape the blood bath. Cardinals fall and bishops too are victims. Then they will try to advance by Spain and France to the Atlantic coast in order to unite with the army fighting in the north and to complete the military encirclement of the European mainland. The third Russian army, which task it is to occupy the left blank areas and to strengthen inland communism — head office of the communist world government should not be Moscow, but Bamberg — will be used no more, because the army is disturbed in its advance due to the revolutions in the south and is in rapid dissolution, while a great monarch determined by God will attack the army in the north at the Niederrhein and overpower it with the most modern weapons.
"In Saxonia, where the back-flooding army places itself again to the battle, it will be struck and destroyed. Thus the war is terminated in Germany. The remainder of Russia's staggering armies will be pursued deep into the internal parts of Russia and wiped out."
"Spoliation, devastation and pillage of that most famous city, which is the capital and mistress of the whole kingdom of France," [Paris will be sacked] will take place when the Church and world will be grievously troubled: "The Pope will change his residence, the Church will not be defended for the duration of twenty-five months, and more, because during all this time there will be no Pope, no Emperor of Rome and no ruler in France. Afterwards a young captive prince shall recover the crown of the Lilies and shall extend his dominion over all the universe. Once established he shall destroy the Sons of Brutus' and their Isle so that their memory shall pass into everlasting forgetfulness.
"After many tribulations a Pope will be elected out of those who escaped persecution. He, by his sanctity, will reform the clergy and the whole world will venerate them for their virtue and perfection. He will travel barefoot and be devoid of fear. Almost all unbelievers and the Jews will be converted and there will be one law, one faith, one baptism, one life. All people will love one another and peace will last a long time."
"The Great Monarch and the Great Pope will precede Antichrist."
"The nations will be in wars for four years and a great part of the world will be destroyed. All the sects will vanish. The capital of the world will fall. The Pope will go over the sea carrying the sign of redemption on his forehead, and after the victory of the Pope and the Great Monarch peace will reign on earth."
"The Pope will cross the sea in a year when the Feast of St. George (April 23rd) falls on Good Friday, and St. Mark's feast (April 25th) falls on Easter Sunday, and the feast of St. Anthony (June 13th) falls on Pentecost and the feast of St. John the Baptist (June 24th) falls on Corpus Christi" [all these concurrences will take place in the year 1943, not again until 2038].
"The Great Monarch will come to restore peace and the Pope will share in the victory."
"Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem."
"At that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith. Everywhere, the fear of God, virtue, and good morals will prevail. He will lead all erring sheep back to the fold, and there shall be one faith, one law, one rule of life, and one baptism on earth. All men will love each other and do good, and all quarrels and wars will cease."
"The confusion will be so general that men will not be able to think right, as if God had withheld His Providence from mankind, and that, during the worst crisis, the best that can be done would be to remain where God has placed us, and persevere in fervent prayers… At that time there will be such a terrible crisis that people will believe that the end of the world has come. Blood will flow in many large cities. The very elements will be convulsed. It will be like a little General Judgement."
"A great multitude of people will lose their lives in those calamitous times, but the wicked will not prevail. They will indeed attempt to destroy the whole Church, but not enough time will be allowed them, because the frightful crisis will be of short duration. When all is considered lost, all will be found safe. This disaster will come to pass shortly after the power of England begins to wane. This will be the sign. As when the fig tree begins to sprout and produce leaves, it is a sure sign that summer is near. England in her turn will experience a more frightful revolution than that of France. It will continue long enough for France to recover her strength; then she will help England to restore peace and order."
"During this revolution, which will very likely be general and not confined to France, Paris will be destroyed so completely that twenty years afterwards fathers walking over its ruins with their children will be asked by them what kind of place that was; to whom they will answer: 'My child, this was a great city which God has destroyed on account of her crimes."
"Overnight the revolution of the communists together with the national socialists starts. There is a storm over cloisters and clergymen. At first humans do not want to believe it, so surprisingly it will happen. Many will be imprisoned and executed. Everyone flees into the mountains. The Pfänder is full of people." [The Pfänder is a mountain in western Austria close to Lake Constance].
"Like a lightning from cheerful sky the revolution of Russia sweeps through first to Germany, then to France, Italy and England."
"The mischief will quite suddenly come from Russia. Everywhere tumults and destruction. The Rhine areas are destroyed by airplanes and invading armies."
"…mass famine and hunger, people will grind bark, in order to make flour; also the grass on the meadows will be used as food."
"The earth is a corpse field, like a desert. Humans come out quietly, frightened from their houses. The corpses are collected on wagons and buried in mass graves. Neither railways nor ships function, nor cars as in earlier times. The factories do not work, the fast pace of former times has stopped."
"I sleep and sleep not when I lie in my hut at night. But things I see, frightening. I don't sleep because I can hear my bulls out there and I hear the wind and the rain. Once I saw the wind bringing fire and all the trees burn like matches. Another time I saw that everything is in decay, no human can be seen and no house, only ruins and debris. And again and again clouds come, fire-red, and it flashes, but it does not thunder."
"Once everything is dark down on Waldhausstraße [a forest road near Zwiesel, leading to the village of Zwieslerwaldhaus]. Someone goes around with a burning branch and shouts: 'Am I really the last one? Am I really still the only one?' And again the sky becomes yellow like a lemon as it hangs far down on the horizon. No bird sings. I do not find any bull or water anymore. Neither on the mountain nor down in the Regen [Regen is a town 2 miles south-west of Zweisel and all the rivers in the area are called regen] you will find any drop. It had to come in such a way, because the people believe in nothing. Everyone seems to think that he lives forever and everyone thinks of what he appears to be and still can become. There will be a time when they all begin to become crazy and think that they can live from prudence and not from work. Those who work will be fewer and fewer. Those who live off the working ones will become more numerous. To rule is thus easier than to work."
"Is such a sacrifice not enough to appease your wrath, 0 Lord? But no, what then is this noise of arms? These cries of war and fear? What do the four winds bring? Ah! the dragon has appeared in all countries and has brought terrible confusion everywhere. There is war everywhere. Men and people have risen up one against the other. War, war, war — civil war and foreign war. What frightening onsets. Everything is mourning and death; famine reigns in the fields.
"The general revolution has followed. In these future happenings will Paris be destroyed? Jerusalem! Jerusalem! (Paris) save yourself from the fire of Sodom and Gomorrah, and from the sack of Babylon. Why Lord, do you not stop all this with Your Arm? Is the fury of men not enough without flaming ruins? Must the elements still serve Your wrath? Stop, Lord, stop! Towns are ruined. The elements are let loose. Cities are destroyed by earthquakes. Mercy and grace for Zion; but You are deaf to our cries, and the Mount of Zion tumbles down with a crash. And here it is that the King of Zion along with his cross, with his sceptre and his triple crown, shaking off, on the ruins, the dust of his shoes, hastens to flee towards other shores. And is it not so, 0 Lord, that Your Church is rent asunder by her own children?
"The sons of Zion are divided into two camps — one faithful to the fugitive Pontiff, and the other inclined or disposed to the government of Zion respecting the Sceptre, but breaking in pieces the triple crown.
"But my spirit wanders and my eyes become obscured at the sight of this terrible cataclysm. But the Spirit said to me, that the man who hopes in God does penance, because the all powerful and merciful God will draw the world out of confusion and a new world will commence. Then the Spirit said to me: 'Here is the beginning of the end of Time which begins!' And I awoke terrified."
"I saw a land swallowed by the sea and covered with water, but afterwards I saw that little by little, the sea retreated and left the land visible, and the upper parts of the towers and turrets of the cities rose and appeared more beautiful than before being swallowed by the sea, and it was told me that was England."
Toward the end of the world, mankind will be purified through sufferings. This will be true especially of the clergy, who will be robbed of all property. When the clergy has adopted a simple manner of living, conditions will improve.
A powerful wind will rise in the North carrying heavy fog and the densest dust by divine command and it will fill their throats and eyes so they will cease their savagery and be stricken with great fear. After that there will be so few men left that seven women will fight for one man, that they will say to the man: "Marry me to take the disgrace from me." For in those days it will be a disgrace for a woman to be without child, as it was by the Jews in the Old Testament.
Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent by an earthquake, storm and tidal waves will be devastated. It will be divided, and in great part be submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea, and lose its colonies in the East through a Tiger and a Lion.
The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. All sea coast cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of these cities does a person live according to the laws of God.
Peace will return to Europe when the white flower (Bourbon Lily : Great Monarch) again takes possession of the throne of France. During this time of peace the people will be forbidden to carry weapons and iron will be used only for making agricultural implements and tools. Also during this period the soil will be very productive and many Jews, heathens and heretics will join the Church."
"One day, before the Comet shines, a lot of People (that inspired present company excepted) from Need and Misery will be wanting a Home. The great Empire in the Sea [England], who are a different Folk stock and origin, will be devastated by Earthquake, Storm and Flood. This Empire will suffer much Misfortune from the Sea. It will be divided into two islands and part of it will sink. The distant possession in the East will be lost through a Tiger and a Lion."
Maumusson is a commune in the Loire-Atlantique department in western France
Before the Grand Monarch [comet], terrible misfortunes are to arrive. The blood will flow in torrents, in the north and the south; the west will be spared because of its faith. But the blood will colour so much to the north and to the south, that I see it flow like rain in a day of great storm, and I see the horses in blood up to their bridles. Paris will be destroyed, so much destroyed that the plow will pass it by…
The Grand Monarch will do things so astonishing and so marvelous that the most unbelieving will be forced to recognize the finger of God. In his reign all justice will be rendered.
God will use the Grand Monarch in order to exterminate all the heretic sects, all the superstitions, and to spread, in concert with the holy Pontiff, the Catholic religion in all the universe, except in Palestine, land of malediction. After the crisis, he will have a General Council, despite the oppositions made by the clergy itself. Afterwards there will be but one flock and one pastor, because all the infidels and the heretics (but not the Jews, whose mass will not convert until after the death of the Beast) will enter into the Latin Church, whose triumph will continue up to the destruction (persecution) of the Antichrist.
Toward the end of the usurper's reign, the Pope will die and he will have for his successor a young Pope, and it will be under him that the restoration will take place.
Some time before this restoration, it will be necessary to sustain an alien war; for that there will be a great levy of men, all the ones of eighteen to thirty years will be gone.
All the forces of government are gripped by this alien power; the interior of France will revolt. The civil crisis will be directed above all against religion… the shock will be terrible. They will battle from the south to the north during several weeks, and the last fifteen days, day and night. However, this crisis will not be long, but in it will perish more men than in the few times in ninety-three… it will make a smell over all the great cities.
The powers seeing this disorder in France, will arm not in favour of the legitimate, but in the purpose of sharing France, for the English will betray.
The Emperor of Russia will come as far as the Rhine, but an invisible hand will stop him; he will recognize the hand of God, and so he will be made Catholic.
At the moment one will believe all is lost, all will be won, for one will turn around by the way of God… Heaven will declare it in the favour of France; she will return the victory, but this will be attributed to the Lord, and not to men. The thing will be so surprising that the most vulgar will call it a miracle. And the Restoration will take place.
The Great Ruler will perform such great and noble deeds that the infidels will be forced to admit the workings of God's providence. Under his reign the greatest abundance will be practiced and the earth will bear in overabundance.
Between the cries "Everything is lost" and "Everything is saved," there will be scarcely any interval.
God will ordain two punishments: One, in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils, will originate on earth; the other will be sent from Heaven. I see above the earth an intense darkness which will last for three days and nights. Nothing will be visible and the air will vomit pestilence, which will claim principally but not exclusively the enemies of religion. During these three days, artificial light will be impossible. Only sacred candles can be lighted and will afford light. During this alarm, the faithful should stay in their houses and recite the Rosary and give Misericords to God. He who out of curiosity opens his window to look out or leave his house will fall dead on the spot.
On this terrible occasion so many of these wicked men, enemies of His Church, and of their God, shall be killed by this divine scourge, that their corpses around Rome will be as numerous as the fishes, which a recent inundation of the Tiber had carried into the city. All the enemies of the Church, secret as well as known, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of some few, whom God will soon after convert. The air shall be infested by demons, who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms.
After the three days of darkness, Saints Peter and Paul, having come down from heaven, will preach throughout the world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and settle upon the cardinal, the future pontiff. Then Christianity will spread throughout the world. Whole nations will join the Church shortly before the reign of the Antichrist. These conversions will be amazing. Those who survive shall have to conduct themselves well. There shall be innumerable conversions of heretics, who will return to the bosom of the Church; all will note the edifying conduct of their lives, as well as that of other Catholics. Russia, England and China will come into the Church.
France will fall into frightful anarchy. The French people shall have a desperate civil war, in which old men themselves will take up arms. The political parties having exhausted their blood and their rage, without being able to arrive at any satisfactory understanding, shall at the last extremity agree by common consent to have recourse to the Holy See. Then the Pope shall send France a special legate, in order that he may examine the state of affairs and the dispositions of the people. In consequence of the information received, His Holiness himself shall nominate a most Christian king for the government of France…
Religions shall be persecuted, priests shall be massacred, the churches shall be closed, but only for a short time; the Holy Father shall be obliged to abandon Rome.
The French nun received a vision in 1819:
There will be three days of continuous darkness. During this fearful darkness only candles which have been blessed will burn. One candle will last for three days, but in the houses of the impious they will not burn. During these three days demons will appear in horrible and nauseating forms and will make the air resound with appalling blasphemies. Rays and flashes will penetrate through the streets at an unusual time of the year. The sea will reverse in foamy waves upon the Earth. Indeed, our planet will become one huge cemetery. The bodies of the impious as well as with those of the just will cover the soil. The famine which will follow will be enormous; all the vegetation of the earth will be destroyed as also will be three-fourths of mankind. The crisis will come suddenly and the disaster will be universal."
There will a three-day Darkness in the entirety of nature; during the three Nights and two Days there will be an uninterrupted night.
The lit Candles will be all the Light to be had. A single candle will last for three Days. Lightning will smash into those homes, but they will not wipe out the light of the candles. Neither the wind nor the storm nor earthquake will destroy the lighted candles.
But in the Houses of the Godless and those who have not found God through all this, there will be bad spirits in the most horrible configurations imaginable and they will make the strangest sounds ever heard. Red clouds like blood will move across the heavens. The cracking and thunder will shake the Earth. Unbelievable lightning will shake the streets in a way that has never been seen. The Earth will shake to its Foundation. The Water of the Ocean will foam over the Land and will be tossed over the embankment. And the entire Earth will become a Cemetery. The Famine will then be great. This Crisis will happen very quickly, and the Punishment will be the same all over the World.
Another recorded version of the prophecy states:
The earth will be like a vast cemetery. Corpses of the impious and of the just will cover it. The earth will tremble to its fundaments, then great waves will agitate the sea and invade the continents.
Before war breaks out again, food will be scarce and expensive. There will be little work for the workers, and fathers will hear their children crying for food. There will be earthquakes and signs in the sun. Toward the end, darkness will cover the earth. When everyone believes that peace is ensured, and everyone least expects it, the great happening will begin.
Revolution will break out in Italy almost at the same time as France. For some time the Church will be without a Pope.
All states will be shaken by war and civil conflict. During a darkness lasting three days the people given to evil ways will perish so that only one-fourth of mankind will survive. The clergy, too, will be greatly reduced in number, as most of them will die in defence of the faith of their country.
She was born blind to Duke Attich (or Adalric), Lord of Alsace, France, in the 7th century. Her father sent her to the convent of Baume-les-Dames near Besancon, where she was miraculously healed by St. Erhard, Bishop of Ratisbon. Thereafter she became known as Odile ("Daughter of Light"). In thanksgiving, her father allowed Odile to convert the family castle into a nunnery. Odile lived there in piety until her death in 720.
Most of St. Odile's prophecies concerned her own time and local events, but one prophecy attributed to her is a detailed description of World War II, which was fulfilled in every detail. Here is her warning about World War 3 and the Antichrist:
"There will come a time when war will break out, more terrible than all other wars combined, which have ever visited mankind. A horrible warrior will unleash it, and his adversaries will call him Antichrist. All nations of the earth will fight each other in this war. The fighters will rise up to the heavens to take the stars and throw them on the cities, to set ablaze the buildings and to cause immense devastations. Oceans will lie between the great warriors, and the monsters of the sea, terrified by everything that happens on or under the sea, will flee to the deep. Battles of the past will only be skirmishes compared to the battles that will take place, since blood will flow in all directions.
"The earth will shake from the violent fighting. Famine and pestilence will join the war. The nations will then cry "Peace, peace", but there will be no peace. Thrice will the sun rise over the heads of the combatants, without having been seen by them. But afterwards there will be peace, and all who have broken peace will have lost their lives. On a single day more men will have lost been killed than the catacombs of Rome have ever held. Pyres will be erected greater than the greatest city, and people will ascend the highest mountains to praise God, and nobody will want to make war anymore. Strange signs will appear in the skies: both horns of the moon will join the cross. Happy will be those who will have survived the war, since the pleasures of life will begin again, and the sun will have a new brilliance…
"Woe to those who, in those days, do not fear the Antichrist, for he is the father of those who are not repelled by crime. He will arouse more homicides and many people will shed tears over his evil customs. Men will set themselves one against the other and at the end will want to re-establish order. Some will try to do so, but this will not succeed and thus will end up even worse off than before! But if things will have reached the summit and if the hand of man can no longer do anything, it will be put in the hands of Him, who can send down a punishment so terrible that it will not have been seen before. God has already sent the Flood, but he has sworn never to send one again. What he will do will be something unexpected and terrible."
"France, Italy, Spain and England will be at war. Blood will flow on the streets, Frenchmen will fight Frenchmen and Italian against Italian and in the end will come a war that will be terrible.
"The earth will be struck by calamities of all kinds in addition to plague and famine which will be wide-spread. There will be a series of wars until the last war, which will then be fought by the ten Kings of the Antichrist, all of whom will have one and the same plan and will be the only rulers of the world. Before this comes to pass, there will be a kind of false peace in the world. People will think of nothing but amusement. The wicked will give themselves over to all kinds of sin. But the children faith will grow in their love for God and in all precious virtues. Blessed are the souls humbly guided by the Holy Spirit! I shall fight at their side until they reach a fullness of years.
"The Church will be in eclipse, the world will be in dismay. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! There will be bloody wars and famines, plagues and infectious diseases. It will rain with a fearful hail of animals. There will be thunderstorms which will shake cities, earthquakes which will swallow up countries. Voices will be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their death, and on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Who will be the victor if God does not shorten the length of the test? All the blood, the tears and the prayers of the righteous: God will relent. Enoch and Eli will be put to death. Pagan Rome will disappear. The fire of Heaven will fall and consume three cities. All the universe will be struck with terror.
"The earth, which will have been in a continuous series of evolutions for three days, will open up its fiery bowels; and then water and fire will purge the earth and consume all the works of men's pride, and all will be renewed. God will be served and glorified."
In September 1988. Father Don Stefano Gobbi received the following messages by the Blessed Virgin Mary concerning a period of 10 years of tribulation:
"Today you are corning from every part of France to the foot of this rock upon which I appeared as the Immaculate Conception, to hold your great cenacle of prayer and fraternal sharing and to renew together the act of consecration to my Immaculate Heart.
“From here I bless my Movement; from here I bless each one of you; from here I bless the Church and all humanity. You have entered into my times. On this day, I am asking you to consecrate to me all the time that still separates you from the end of this century of yours.
“It is a period of ten years. These are ten very important years. These are ten decisive years. I am asking you to spend them with me because you are entering into the final period of the second Advent, which will lead you to the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the glorious coming of my Son Jesus.
“In this period of ten years there will come to completion that fullness of time which was pointed out to you by me, beginning with La Salette all the way to my most recent and present apparitions.
“In this period of ten years there will come to its culmination that purification which, for a number of years now, you have been living through and therefore the sufferings will become greater for all.
“In this period of ten years there will come to completion the time of the great tribulation, which has been foretold to you in Holy Scripture, before the second coming of Jesus.
“In this period of ten years the mystery of iniquity, prepared for by the ever increasing spread of apostasy, will become manifest.
“In this period of ten years all the secrets which I have revealed to some of my children will come to pass and all the events which have been foretold to you by me will take place.
“Therefore I am asking you today to consecrate to me all this period of time, as though it were a more extended and continuous Marian Year. Open to me the doors of your hearts and let me work in you. Open to me the doors of your families, of your parishes, of your religious houses and let the immaculate light of my presence enter in.
“Multiply your cenacles of prayer and live in the greatest trust and filial abandonment to me, without allowing yourselves to be seized by vain curiosity to know what is awaiting you.
“May the water of divine mercy purify you of every sin and make of you new buds for the era of grace and of holiness which, in my Immaculate Heart, I am preparing for you each day.
“From this most venerated shrine of mine, I bless you all."
The stigmata of the Capuchin priest Padre Pio da Pietrelcina (25May1887-23Sep1968) bled about a cup of blood daily for 50 years. He also transmitted the following Marian prophecies, excerpted from a letter to the Commission of Heroldsbach, appointed by the Vatican to investigate his case:
"My son, My son, I have been longing for this hour in which I again shall reveal to you the great love of My heart… Pray and make reparation to Me. Admonish others to do the same because the time is near at hand in which I shall visit My unfaithful people because they have not heeded the time of My grace. Persevere in prayer, so that your adversary shall have no dominion over you. Tell My people to be prepared at all times, for My judgment shall come upon them suddenly and when least expected — and not one shall escape My hands, I shall find them all! I shall protect the just. Watch the sun and moon and the stars of the Heavens. When they appear to be unduly disturbed and restless, know that the day is not far away. Stay united in prayer and watching until the angel of destruction has passed your doors. Pray that these days will be shortened." (New Years eve 1949)
"Pray! Make reparation! Be fervent and practice mortifications. Great things are at stake! Pray! Men are running toward the abyss of Hell in great rejoicing and merry-making, as though they were going to a masquerade ball or the wedding feast of the devil himself! Assist Me in the salvation of souls. The measure of sin is filled! The day of revenge, with its terrifying happenings is near — nearer then you can imagine! And the world is seeping in false security! The Divine Judgment shall strike them like a thunderbolt! These Godless and wicked people shall be destroyed without mercy, as were the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorra of old. Yes, I tell you their wickedness was not as great as that of our human race today! (Jan.23, 1950)
"Keep your windows well-covered. Do not look out. Light a blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the Rosary. Read spiritual books. Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of love, which are so pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the ground, in order that many souls may be saved. Do not go outside the house. Provide yourself with sufficient food. The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear. Have courage! I am in the midst of you." (Jan. 28, 1950)
"Take care of the animals during these days. I am the creator and preserver of animals as well as man. I shall give you a few signs beforehand, at which time you should place more food before them. I will preserve the property of the elect, including the animals, for they shall be in need of sustenance afterwards as well. Let no one go across the yard, even to feed the animals — he who steps outside will perish! Cover your windows carefully. My elect shall not see My wrath. Have confidence in Me, and I will be your protection. (Feb. 2, 1950)
"Hurricanes of fire will pour forth from the clouds and spread over the entire earth! Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes will cover the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire will take place! It will begin on during a very cold night. All this is to prove that God is the Master of Creation. Those who hope in Me, and believe in My words, have nothing to fear because I will not forsake them, nor those who spread My message. No harm will come to those who are in the state of grace and who seek My Mother's protection.
"That you may be prepared for these visitations, I will give you the following signs and instructions: The night will be very cold. The wind will roar. After a time thunderbolt will be heard. Lock all the doors and windows. Talk to no one outside the house. Kneel down before a crucifix, be sorry for your sins, and beg My Mothers protection. Do not look during the earthquake, because the anger of God is holy! Jesus does not want us to behold the anger of God, because God's anger must be contemplated with fear and trembling.
"Those who disregard this advice will be killed instantly. The wind will carry with it poisonous gases which will be diffused over the entire earth. Those who suffer and die innocently will be martyrs and they will be with Me in My Kingdom. Satan will triumph! But in three nights, the earthquake and fire will cease. On the following day the sun will shine again, angels will descend from Heaven and will spread the spirit of peace over the earth. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will take possession of those who survive this most terrible ordeal, the impending punishment, with which God will visit the earth since creation.
"I have chosen souls in other countries too, such as Belgium, Switzerland, Spain, who have received these revelations so that other countries also may be prepared. Pray Rosary, but pray it well, so that your prayers may reach Heaven. Soon a more terrible catastrophe shall come upon the entire world, such as never before has been witnessed, a terrible chastisement never before experienced!
"How unconcerned men are regarding these things! Which shall so soon come upon them, contrary to all expectations. How indifferent they are in preparing themselves for these unheard of events, through which they will have to pass so shortly! The weight of divine balance has reached the earth! The wrath of My Father shall be poured out over the entire world! I am again warning the world through your instrumentality, as I have so often done heretofore.
"This catastrophe shall come upon the earth like a flash of lightning! At which moment the light of the morning sun shall be replaced by black darkness! No one shall leave the house or look out a window from that moment on. I Myself shall come amidst thunder and lightning. The wicked shall behold My Divine Heart. There shall be great confusion because of this utter darkness in which the entire earth shall be enveloped, and many, many shall die from fear and despair.
"On that day, as soon as complete darkness has set in, no one shall leave the house or look from out of the window. The darkness shall last a day and a night followed by another day and night, and another day — but on the night following, the stars will shine again, and on the next morning the sun shall rise again, and it will be SPRINGTIME!! In the days of darkness, My elect shall not sleep, as did the disciples in the garden. They shall pray incessantly, and they shall not be disappointed in Me. I shall gather My elect. Hell will believe itself to be in possession of the entire earth, but I shall reclaim it.
"Again and again I have warned men, and often have I given them special opportunities to return to the right path; but now, wickedness has reached its climax, and the punishment can no longer be delayed. Tell all that the time has come in which these things shall be fulfilled." (Feb. 7, 1950)
The Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ appeared to Veronica Lueken over a period of 25 years during her Rosary vigils in Flushing Meadows Park, NY.
Because Jesus said that after John Paul II there will be two more popes. After this Pope, Jesus will not be long in coming. The end of the world is also near (later he indicates this means end of the era). That is why we must be prepared and confident. At the moment of the third world war there will be famine in many, many countries. Even after the war is when the anti-christ will really begin his reign. Jesus asks us not to allow the anti-christ to influence you because you will be going through a horrible time. There will a famine. Those that still have food and still have money will be followers of the anti-christ, during the time the anti-christ will lead the world. And it is at that time the Christians will be persecuted … After this you will see the anger of Jesus. Jesus will show that he truly is God. The volcanoes will erupt with lava, the oceans will swell and envelop many countries. There will be many, many, many earthquakes. This will be God's fury. It will be the fury of our Lord too. And Jesus Christ will show his power. And the anti-christ will be destroyed with all of his followers … The three days of darkness, I will tell you about that when I describe the end of the world on the following Friday. What will kill a lot of the people will not be just the war. There will be a lot of volcanoes, the ocean and the earthquakes and those that will be purified, Jesus said to me, that humankind in many countries have already created nuclear arms and when they use these nuclear arms the air that we breathe will be polluted. Because of the war there that will take place even in the ocean, even the waters of the ocean will be contaminated. When we breathe this air we will become sick and die. When we drink the water we will also die.
She had been under the special guidance of the famous stigmatist Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, Italy since she was nine. She was a victim soul, chosen by God to atone for Priests and sinners. The Eternal Father, Our Lord, The Virgin Mary, and Padre Pio appeared to her in visions and gave many important messages for the world.
The Blessed Virgin Mary: "An unforeseen fire will descend over the whole earth, and a great part of humanity will be destroyed. This will be a time of despair for the impious: with shouts and satanic blasphemy, they will beg to be covered by the mountains, and they will try to seek refuge in caverns, but to no avail. Those who remain will find God's mercy in my power and protection, while all who refuse to repent of their sins will perish in a sea of fire!"
"Blessed are those who at this time may be called truly devoted to Mary!"
"Russia will be almost completely burned."
I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. (Revelations 6:12-14)
Starting at the end and work forwards, the last Cataclysmic event is when the Earth is renovated by fire. It is discussed in 2 Peter 3:5-13 and Revelation 20:7-15. The Earth is turned into a sea of fire and lava. There are no longer any oceans. This event could be cause by a large impactor 100-200 miles in diameter.
Before that happens there will be a millennium, a thousand years, of peace. Revelation 20:1-6 — God made a promise to the Jewish people, during this time he will begin to fulfil it. Before that there is a Great Tribulation. This event is discussed in Matthew 24:21, Revelation 8:5-13, Revelation 6:12-17, Revelation 16:17-21 and Revelation 18:8-10,21 to name a few.
Three days of darkness that will enshroud the planet — such a darkness is prophesied several times in the Bible; see Joel 2:10, 31 and 3:15; Matthew 24:25, 29; Revelation 6:12, 14 and 8:12; Zechariah 14:6, 7; Isaiah 13:10 and 24:23; Mark 13:24; Luke 21:25, and Acts 2:19, 20.
Saint Malachy Prophecy of the Popes
St. Malachy (1094 — November 2, 1148) was known as great prophet. While in Rome in 1139 he received a vision showing him all the Popes from his day to the end of time. His prophecy reportedly listed 111 popes. But by the time of the lists first publication a final 112nd pope had been addd. Those of the 20th century are translated from Latin as follows (See Wiki):
Lumen in Coelo (Light in Heaven): the 102nd in St. Malachy's series was Pope Leo XIII, whose Pecci family coat-of-arms bears a comet.
Ignis Ardens (Ardent Fire): Pope Pius X (1903-1914).
Religio Depopulata (Religion Depopulated): Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922); during World War I, depopulation was the order of the day.
Fides Intrepida (Intrepid Faith): Pope Pius XI (1922-1939).
Pastor Angelicus (Angelic Shepherd): Pope Pius XII (1939-1958).
Pastor et Nauta (Shepherd and Sailor): Pope John XXIII (1958-1963) was the patriarch ("Shepherd") of the port city of Venice (hence "Sailor") before he was elected Pope.
Flos Florum (Flower of Flowers): Pope Paul VI (1963-1978); his family coat-of-arms has a floral crest of the fleur-de-lys.
De Medietate Lunae (Middle of the Moon), number 109: The 33-day reign of Pope Paul I spanned two full moons. He was born in the diocese of Belluno (beautiful moon) and was baptized Albino Luciani (white light). He became pope on August 26, 1978, when the moon appeared exactly half full. It was in its waning phase. He died the following month, soon after an eclipse of the moon.
De Labore Solis (Labor of the Sun): Pope John Paul II (1978-2005) — on the morning of the day he was born there was a near total eclipse of the sun over Europe.
De Gloria Olivae (Glory of the Olive), number 111, will be the penultimate Pope, according to St. Malachi. Pope Benedict XVI (2005-2013) — The order St Benedict founded, the Benedictines, is also known as the "Olivetans". Clearly, someone in the Vatican has gone to a lot of trouble to force the prophecy of Malachy to come true. Being a Benedictine is one thing, but electing a pope to take on the name of Benedict seals the prophecy.
On 11 February 2013, Pope Benedict XVI announced he will resign on February 28 because of his failing health, saying he no longer has the strength to carry out his duties.
13 March 2013 — a new pope is elected, Pope Francis I — Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina. The first South American pontiff; and the first pope to take the name of Francis. He is also the first Jesuit pope, and the 1st pope to have only 1 lung (he had 1 removed while a teenager probably after an infection). Francis the 1st is the 266th pope.
the last popes…
After the line Gloria Olivae, comes "In persecutione extrema S.R.E. Sedebit." which is interpreted as "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit." and then the last entry:
Petrus Romanus — "Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End."
The choice of Joseph Ratzinger when he became Pope Benedict XVI almost guarantees that a world war is now looming on the horizon.
Why? The last Benedict, Benedict XV, became pope in 1914 just before WWI broke out. He spent the next four years trying to get the warring nations of Europe to mend their differences and end the most calamitous conflict in world history up to that time.
So, this tells us several things. The Vatican believes WW3 is right around the corner. They want a pope in power who can live up to the name given by Malachy: "Glory of the Olives" — a name which also signifies the role off the peacemaker (to this day 'offering an olive branch' is a gesture of peace). Thus, they hope this pope, Benedict XVI, will be instrumental in bringing a quick end to the coming world war, preventing it from happening, or leading all of Christendom in the coming great conflict of good against evil where the West and Christianity will emerge victorious.
However, in early Feb 2013, Pope Benedict XVI announced he'll resign on 28 February 2013. Not what was expected! This throws the prophecy into turmoil as the next pope (who is supposed to be Peter of Rome) has to reign some 25 years.
When Rome and the Vatican are sacked (around 2038, I think), the Pope is supposed to flee Italy. The Pope may be killed but the rest flee west (to the USA, some say France?) Then there is supposed to be a committee that govern the Catholic Church.
I have absolutely no idea how Pope Francis I fits into this. Was he not listed because he is a Jesuit? Is there a gap between Gloria Olivae and the last pope? It would seem odd to give a full list of popes and then not list a few of the final ones…
According to the Sacred Hoop and the prophecies, it is time to share this ancient wisdom. It is time for the Great Purification. We are at a point of no return. The two-legged are about to bring destruction to life on Earth. It's happened before, and it's about to happen again. The Sacred Hoop shows how all things go in a circle. The old become new; the new becomes old. Everything repeats. White people have no culture. Culture is having roots in the Earth. People without culture don't exist very long because Nature is God. Without a connection to Nature, the people drift, grow negative, destroy themselves. In the beginning we had one mind, and it was positive, a thing of beauty, seeing beauty everywhere. The Earth People never wrote anything down and had no written language. They knew that, if they wrong anything down, it would be disastrous. If you write something down, you don't have to remember it. And mind goes off into unconsciousness. It becomes negative, or unconscious force.
The Quest, by Tom Brown, Jr. Pages 125-133
I could feel my body and mind begin to slip away. Reality no longer existed and I could not think at all. I had the sense that I had awakened from a bad dream, but what I had awakened to, I could not comprehend. The world, my world, had changed. The pit lay before me as always, but all around things were different. The once lush Pine Barrens that had framed the edge of the excavation were now wilted and dying. There was no sound or motion. The air was thick with the smell of caustic chemicals and mingled with that of rotten flesh. As I looked to the sky the stars dripped great drops of blood that fell to the Earth with a searing and thunderous crash. The stars and the sky were red, blood read, and I grew so sick that I couldn’t breathe.
I lay gasping at the edge of the pit, trying to get my breath and settle my stomach. It was then that I noticed that the entire floor of the excavation was covered with bodies. Bodies of humans, young and old, badly scarred, partially clothed, and almost fully rotted, lay from one end of the pit to the other. The stench was so sickening that it made my eyes water. The horror of it all terrorized my very soul, and the reality was too much to bear. I couldn’t run; no matter how much I struggled to stand, I was held fast to the Earth.
I heard voices and the sound of light footfalls on the gravelly earth below me. A surge of hope welled up in my chest and I struggled to the edge again. As I looked down into the misty grayness of the pit I saw a line of children, stalking into the pit. As they went along, they looked around carefully. Some held clubs, others held spears made from broom handles, all of them were sparsely clothed, very dirty, and terribly thin. They seemed frightened, yet they appeared to know what they were doing and where they were going.
I pulled back from the edge again and lay on my back, trying to clear my mind of this nightmare. It was then that I heard a crunching sound that drew my attention back to the edge. As I carefully peered over the edge I gagged at what I saw, barely able to control my stomach. The children were tearing at the bodies. Some of the children were feeding on limbs and fingers, others were feeding on the internal organs, and all were covered in rotted flesh, blood, and maggots. I could bear to look no more and pulled back from the edge again, unable to understand or even think.
The sound of a truck coming to the edge of the pit startled me. At the far end of the pit a huge dump truck was backing to the edge. I looked down to see if the children were still there, but they had vanished. I caught sight of some of the children hiding behind a large pile of bodies, watching as the truck approached the edge. It was obvious that they did not want to be seen. Suddenly the truck began to dump its load over the edge of the excavation. To my absolute horror the truck was dumping a load of bodies. These bodies looked even more emaciated than the ones in the pits. Apparently most of these people had died of starvation.
I watched the truck pull away. Armed guards stood on its sides as it slowly rumbled up the road, then disappeared in the dusty horizon. The children below me came out of hiding and cautiously began to make their way to the far end of the pit. Some of the children could not have been over six years old, with the oldest being about eleven or twelve. As they reached the pile of fresh bodies they began to feed on the flesh with a ravenous appetite. They seemed to care little that they were eating humans, nor did they let down their guard as they fed. They reminded me more of a pack of feral dogs feeding in a dump than a group of humans.
Suddenly a shot rang out from across the pit, and a young boy fell from the top of the body pile, blood pouring from his chest. Then another shot and another child fell, then another and another. The children ran through the body dump and up the distant bank, heads held low and zigzagging as they ran, which told me that they had been through this before. Four children lay dead on the body piles, and one wounded child in apparent agony was trying to crawl to safety. Another shot and the child was dead. My mind was so sick with horror that I was paralyzed, unable to even think of helping. The whole scene was so alien to me that I could not rationalize it, for now I was running almost purely on the instincts of the primal mind.
I watched as a group of men, dressed like bedraggled soldiers, stalked over to the edge of the pit. They scanned the pit and the walls, guns ready, as if at any moment they would be attacked. Finally three of the men entered the pit and headed for the dead children as the others stood guard. The men in the pit gutted the children, much like a deer hunter guts and field-dresses a deer, then pulled the children back up to the distant lip of the excavation. A strange four-wheel-drive vehicle, also camouflaged, entered the scene and a fire was started. The men now seemed more relaxed and began to joke around and talk loudly.
I watched them for what seemed like hours. They cooked one of the children on the fire and began to feast. The other children’s bodies were tied onto the vehicle’s hood, bumpers, and roll bar. I noticed that one of the men urinated into a can and passed the can to another, who drank it down. Just as they got into the vehicle and began to drive off, more shots rang out and the car crashed into a pile of bodies that lay on the top of the ridge road. The children who had originally been in the dump had ambushed the men and had burned the vehicle. They collected all the guns quickly and returned to what remained of the Pine Barrens. The whole thing happened so fast that I could barely keep account of all the killing.
For the next several hours, nothing moved. The stench of the rotting bodies and the caustic air was all that existed. It was then that I noticed that one of the men had only been wounded and now slipped quietly down the road. Instinctively I followed, cautiously watching the landscape for any movement. There were no animals, no birds, and no living plants. There wasn’t any sign of water, and the only animal life seemed to be the persistent flies and carrion beetles. I followed the man for hours through the dead landscape, as the air grew thicker with smoke and the caustic bite of chemicals.
In the distance I could see the rubble of a city, and I cautiously got as close as possible. The once proud city lay in ruin. The air was thick and more choking than back at the pit. People lay dying and bodies were piled along gutters. Some of the bodies had been eaten. Smoldering fires held the remains of charred human bones, and people drifted around in the littered streets as if in a daze. I passed what appeared to be a store, and hanging from hooks were parts of human bodies. People seemed to be buying these as one would a side of beef. Canisters of what looked like murky water lay at the back of the store, watched over by an armed guard. Everywhere was suffering, death, and the most vile pollution.
I wandered the streets in a daze, too numb to think or react. I realized that these people could not see me, for I was a ghost from the past and not of their world. The more I wandered and saw, the more I cried. Surely I knew that this would become the possible future that the prophecies spoke of. As I began to walk back in the direction of the pit an old man approached me, apparently able to see me. His face was drawn, full of oozing sores, his body frail with starvation. He looked me right in the eye and screamed in a feeble voice, “Why have you done nothing? Why have you sentenced me to this living hell?” he paused, looking into my eyes for a long time, then said, “is this the legacy you have left for me Grandfather?” then I awoke back at the edge of the excavation. All had returned to my reality.
I was so shaken from the dream or the Vision, I did not know which it had been. I was aware that a considerable amount of time had passed, for there was evidence of rain, and the trees had grown paler and drier. I could have been gone for a day or a month, I did not know, nor did I know where I had been or how I had gotten there. I vividly remembered that world of death, and especially the old man’s words. Could this be my grandchild, or great grandchild, and what did he mean by my legacy? I surely was not responsible for any destruction of the cities or for the death of those children. Surely he did not mean me.
It was then that I remembered what Grandfather had told me. That we are all responsible, for we are all part of the spirit-that-moves-in-all-things. So then I was responsible for this and I had nothing to prevent it from happening. I felt sick, for this old and frail man could have been my grandson, or anyone’s grandson; it made no difference, for we are all family and all responsible. I again remembered his words. “What have you done? What have you done?” I again lost the reality of time and place and slipped back off into the abyss of emptiness.
To my horror I was back in that world of possible futures. I lay again at the edge of the pit, still strewn with bodies and filled with the vile stench. As I rose from the ground I looked across the pit, and on the distant edge sat the old man I had seen in the city. He appeared to be praying, as his position was bent toward the ground in an attitude of reverence. I stalked around the edge to where he sat, and as I approached him, he spoke to me again. Without lifting his head he said, “You do whatever you must, but you can never run away.” With that he lifted his head, and there in front of him was a tiny seedling, his hands cupped lovingly around its leaves. He said again, “You do whatever you can, no matter how little you feel it may be.” With that he vanished, and I returned to my place at the edge of the pit of death.
I sat for a long time trying to think and to put everything I had learned into some order. But the stench of death disallowed any clear thought. The horror of it all overwhelmed me. This was a place where nothing really existed. There were no plants or animals, and death was the only escape. The spirits did not even come to this world, for the battles now raged in the world of spirit, and this world had long been forgotten. Here the demons had won. Man’s greed and hatred had finally been rewarded. This was the fruit of man’s labors. These were the sins of man’s grandfathers and grandmothers and the results of living a life chasing the false gods of the flesh. This was a world without spirit, without hope.
The call of a hawk sounded, and I looked up and across the pit. There on the far side stood a group of people, so unlike the ones in the city. These people were healthy, yet they carried no weapons, nor were their faces wrought with anger. Instead they glowed with an inner peace and an outward happiness. They met the old man, hugged and kissed him, and turned not to the city but to the wilderness. In them I could feel a hope, a new hope. As the destruction of man lay all around them I felt that they held the answers to a new tomorrow. Truly, I thought, these must be the children of the Earth. “It doesn’t have to end this way,” a voice said. I turned abruptly toward the voice. Standing before me was the man in white robes I had seen in the Vision that had driven me to this quest.
It was not Jesus, as I first suspected, but a young Native American dressed in white buckskin robes. Quilled onto the robes were various signs of the Earth, Spirit, and the Creator. As he stood before me I had the deep feeling that I somehow knew who he was, but I could not place his face, though that was also very familiar. I thought that I might have possibly seen his picture in a history book, but that seemed too farfetched. He seemed to possess a knowledge that caused him to glow, a knowledge that I so desperately wanted and needed. Around him seemed to be an aura of peace, and though he was quite young, it seemed to me that he was a shaman.
As he spoke, the distant sky tolled with thunder and the Earth trembled. He gave me no chance to speak but said, “You have seen the stars that bleed and witnessed the destruction of the possible futures. You have seen the sick and barren Earth, the hatred, the destruction, and the Vision of your grandchildren dying. You have seen the children feed upon the remains of the children and you have seen an Earth of no spirit or hope. This is not the possible future but the probable future, and all that you have seen will come to pass. You are responsible for this future. So, too, are all the rest. All those who have run to the mountains and wilderness to hide are responsible, like all those who chased the false gods of the flesh. There are no innocent, except for the children who die in this place.”
The spirit continued, saying, “The old man asked what you had done to prevent this, and you had no answer. Nor have you even thought to answer, for you have done nothing. For you, who has borne witness to this land of death, there can be no answers, for there can be but one question. When will you do something to stop this death? Only when you have worked to save the Earth and the grandchildren can you have any answers. Only when you no longer run away and hide can there be hope. To run and hide in wilderness is to be responsible for the death of the world. There can be no running away for those who love.”
“But what can I do?” I asked. “I am only a child, a small and weak voice in a land that hears nothing but money and power.”
“You cannot change things by thinking about changing things. You must do something, not talk or dream. The only answers lie in teaching people and leading them back to the Earth and the spirit. All other methods of change are temporary and shallow. You can only change things changing the hearts of man. Each man must change before society changes, for it is the individual that contributes to the society, the wars, the hatred, and the destruction of the Earth. So then, if enough men and women are reached, the course and destiny of the flock will change. To teach and to lead is to love.
”The spirit vanished into a violent flash of lightning, and the Earth trembled with the thunder. I was back in my own time and place, seated on the lip of the excavation and filled with the words of the spirit. I knew then that someday I would have to leave the wilderness and try to do something to change the probably future. For me there could be no running away, for I had to do something, no matter how small and feeble I thought my voice might be. I was ready and willing to give up my dreams of wilderness to live my Vision. I did not know how or when, but I had to follow that Vision, and that Vision would provide the way.
Through the flashes of lightning I could see another man approaching me, again wearing a white robe. I ran from the hill to meet the spirit in the pit and to thank him for his wisdom and for the truth. I stumbled before the spirit and fell, exhausted by the quest. I looked up into Grandfather’s face, his buckskin robes white against the dark sky, and I saw the quillwork of Earth, Spirit, and the Creator. Crying, Grandfather said, “Welcome to the Vision of Love, Grandson.” And my forty-day quest was over, forever changing my life.

Tom Brown Jnr also wrote about his Grandfather's vision:
A number of people can predict the future. But few get the timing correct. Stalking Wolf, also called "Grandfather", was an Apache wise man and scout who grew up outside the influence of the white man. His many predictions not only came true in the MANNER he predicted, but also WHEN he predicted.
Tom Brown learned extensively from Grandfather for 20 years, from their first meeting when Tom was 7 years old. The following tells of Grandfather's predictions for the whole of mankind.
The following is an excerpt from the book "The Quest" by Tom Brown Jnr., first published 1991.
The Four Signs
Grandfather had been wandering for several years and was well into his forties when the Vision of the four signs was given to him. He had just finished his third Vision Quest at the Eternal Cave when the Vision made itself known. He had been seated at the mouth of the cave, awaiting the rising Sun, when the spirit of the warrior appeared to him. He felt as if he were in a state somewhere between dream and reality, sleep and wakefulness, until the spirit finally spoke and he knew that it was not his imagination. The spirit called Grandfather's name and beckoned him to follow.
As Grandfather stood, he was suddenly transported to another world. Again, he thought that he was dreaming, but his flesh could feel the reality of this place; his senses knew that this was a state of abject reality, but in another time and place.
The spirit warrior spoke to Grandfather. "These are the things yet to come that will mark the destruction of man. These things you may never see, but you must work to stop them and pass these warnings on to your grandchildren. They are the possible futures of what will come if man does not come back to the Earth and begin to obey the laws of Creation and the Creator. There are four signs, four warnings, that only the children of the Earth will understand. Each warning marks the beginning of a possible future, and as each warning becomes reality, so too does the future it marks."
With that, the spirit warrior was gone and Grandfather was left alone in this strange, new world.
The First Sign
The world he was in was like nothing he had ever known. It was a dry place with little vegetation. In the distance he saw a village, yet it was made out of tents and cloth rather than from the materials of the Earth. As he drew closer to the village, the stench of death overwhelmed him and he grew sick. He could hear children crying, the moaning of elders and the sounds of sickness and despair. Piles of bodies lay in open pits awaiting burial, their contorted faces and frail frames telling of death from starvation. The bodies appeared more like skeletons than flesh, and children, adults and elders all looked the same, their once dark-brown complexions now ash-grey. As Grandfather entered the village, the horror of living starvation struck him deeper. Children could barely walk, elders lay dying, and everywhere were the cries of pain and fear. The stench of death and the sense of hopelessness overwhelmed Grandfather, threatening to drive him from the village.
It was then that an elder appeared to Grandfather, at first speaking in a language that he could not understand. Grandfather realised, as the elder spoke, that he was the spirit of a man — a man no longer of flesh, but a man who had once walked a spiritual path, possibly a shaman of this tribe. It was then that he understood what the old one was trying to tell him.
The elder spoke softly. "Welcome to what will be called the 'land of starvation'. The world will one day look upon all of this with horror and will blame the famine on the weather and the Earth. This will be the first warning to the world that man cannot live beyond the laws of Creation, nor can he fight Nature. If the world sees that it is to blame for this famine, this senseless starvation, then a great lesson will be learned. But I am afraid that the world will not blame itself, but that the blame will be placed on Nature. The world will not see that it created this place of death by forcing these people to have larger families. When the natural laws of the land were broken, the people starved, as Nature starves the deer in winter when their numbers are too many for the land to bear."
The old one continued. "These people should have been left alone. They once understood how to live with the Earth, and their wealth was measured in happiness, love and peace. But all of that was taken from them when the world saw theirs as a primitive society. It was then that the world showed them how to farm and live in a less primitive way. It was the world that forced them to live outside the laws of Creation and, as a result, is now forcing them to die."
The old man slowly began to walk away, back to the death and despair. He turned one last time to Grandfather, and said: "This will be the first sign. There will come starvation before and after this starvation, but none will capture the attention of the world with such impact as does this one. The children of the Earth will know the lessons that are held in all of this pain and death, but the world will only see it as drought and famine, blaming Nature instead of itself." This is the great African 1984/85 famine that inspired the Bob Geldof "We are the World" Live Aid relief effort.
With that, the old one disappeared, and Grandfather found himself back at the mouth of the Eternal Cave.
Grandfather lay back on the ground, thinking about what he had witnessed. He knew that it had been a Vision of the possible future and that the spirit of the warrior had brought him to it to teach him what could happen. Grandfather knew that people all over the Earth were now starving — but why was this starvation so critical, so much more important than all the rest, even more important than the starvation that was taking place now?
It was then that Grandfather recalled that the tribal elder had said that the entire world would take notice, but that the world would not learn the lessons of what the death and famine were trying to teach. The children would die in vain.
Grandfather looked out across the barren land that surrounded the Eternal Cave to try to re-establish the reality of his 'now'. He said that it was still hard to discern between waking reality and the world of Vision, but he felt that he was back into his time and place.
He told me that the Eternal Cave was always a place to find Visions of the possible and probable futures, and it was not uncommon for the searcher to have a Vision at the mouth of the cave, not just inside.
In a state of physical and emotional exhaustion, Grandfather fell into a deep sleep, but it was in this sleep that the warrior spirit appeared to him again and brought the remainder of the first sign to completion.
In his dream, the spirit spoke to Grandfather. "It is during the years of the famine, the first sign, that man will be plagued by a disease, a disease that will sweep the land and terrorise the masses. The white coats [doctors/scientists] will have no answers for the people, and a great cry will arise across the land. The disease will be born of monkeys, drugs and sex. It will destroy man from inside, making common sickness a killing disease. Mankind will bring this disease upon himself as a result of his life, his worship of sex and drugs, and a life away from Nature. This, too, is a part of the first warning; but, again, man will not heed this warning and he will continue to worship the false gods of sex and the unconscious spirit of drugs." [Author's note: This is presumably a reference to AIDS.]
The spirit continued. "The drugs will produce wars in the cities of man, and the nations will arise against those wars, arise against that killing disease. But the nations will fight in the wrong way, lashing out at the effect rather than the cause. It will never win these wars until the nation, until society, changes its values and stops chasing the gods of sex and drugs. It is then, in the years of the first sign, that man can change the course of the probable future. It is then that he may understand the greater lessons of the famine and the disease. It is then that there can still be hope. But once the second sign of destruction appears, the Earth can no longer be healed on a physical level. Only a spiritual healing can then change the course of the probable futures of mankind."
With that, the warrior spirit let Grandfather fall into a deep and dreamless sleep, allowing him to rest fully before any more Vision was wrought upon him.
The Second Sign
Grandfather awoke at the entrance of the cave once again, the memory of the warrior spirit still vivid in his mind, the spirit's words becoming part of his soul.
When Grandfather looked out across the landscape, all had changed. The landscape appeared drier; there was no vegetation to be seen, and animals lay dying. A great stench of death arose from the land, and the dust was thick and choking, the intense heat oppressive. Looking skyward, the Sun seemed to be larger and more intense; no birds or clouds could be seen, and the air seemed thicker still. It was then that the sky seemed to surge and huge holes began to appear. The holes tore with a resounding, thunderous sound, and the very Earth, rocks and soil shook.
The skin of the sky seemed to be torn open like a series of gaping wounds, and through these wounds seeped a liquid that seemed like the oozing of an infection, a great sea of floating garbage, oil and dead fish. It was through one of these wounds that Grandfather saw the floating bodies of dolphins, accompanied by tremendous upheavals of the Earth and violent storms. As he held fast to the trembling Earth, his eyes fell from the sky, and all about him, all at once, was disaster. Piles of garbage reached to the skies, forests lay cut and dying, coastlines were flooded and storms grew more violent and thunderous. With each passing moment, the Earth shook with greater intensity, threatening to tear apart and swallow Grandfather.
Suddenly the Earth stopped shaking and the sky cleared. Out of the dusty air walked the warrior spirit, who stopped a short distance from Grandfather. As Grandfather looked into the face of the spirit, he could see that there were great tears flowing from his eyes, and each tear fell to the Earth with a searing sound.
The spirit looked at Grandfather for a long moment, then finally spoke. "Holes in the sky."
Grandfather thought for a moment, then, in a questioning, disbelieving manner, said, "Holes in the sky?"
And the spirit answered. "They will become the second sign of the destruction of man. The holes in the sky and all that you have seen could become man's reality. It is here, at the beginning of this second sign, that man can no longer heal the Earth with physical action. It is here that man must heed the warning and work harder to change the future at hand. But man must not only work physically, he must also work spiritually, through prayer, for only through prayer can man now hope to heal the Earth and himself."
There was a long pause as Grandfather thought about the impossibility of holes in the sky. Surely Grandfather knew that there could be a spiritual hole, but a hole that the societies of the Earth could notice would hardly seem likely.
The spirit drew closer and spoke again, almost in a whisper. "These holes are a direct result of man's life, his travel, and of the sins of his grandfathers and grandmothers. These holes, the second sign, will mark the killing of his grandchildren and will become a legacy to man's life away from Nature. It is the time of these holes that will mark a great transition in mankind's thinking. They will then be faced with a choice — a choice to continue following the path of destruction, or a choice to move back to the philosophy of the Earth and a simpler existence. It is here that the decision must be made, or all will be lost."
Without another word, the spirit turned and walked back into the dust.
The Third Sign
Grandfather spent the next four days at the cave entrance, though for those four days nothing spoke to him, not even the Earth. He said that it was a time of great sorrow, of aloneness, and a time to digest all that had taken place.
He knew that these things would not appear in his lifetime, but they had to be passed down to the people of the future with the same urgency and power with which they had been delivered to him. But he did not know how he would explain these unlikely events to anyone. Surely the elders and shamans of the tribes would understand, but not society, and certainly not anyone who was removed from the Earth and Spirit.
He sat for the full four days, unmoving, as if made of stone, and his heart felt heavy with the burden he now carried.
It was at the end of the fourth day that the third Vision came to him. As he gazed out onto the landscape towards the setting Sun, the sky suddenly turned to a liquid and then turned blood-red. As far as his eyes could see, the sky was solid red, with no variation in shadow, texture or light. The whole of Creation seemed to have grown still, as if awaiting some unseen command. Time, place and destiny seemed to be in limbo, stilled by the bleeding sky. He gazed for a long time at the sky, in a state of awe and terror, for the red colour of the sky was like nothing he had ever seen in any sunset or sunrise. The colour was that of man, not of Nature, and it had a vile stench and texture. It seemed to burn the Earth wherever it touched. As sunset drifted to night, the stars shone bright red, the colour never leaving the sky, and everywhere the cries of fear and pain were heard.
Again, the warrior spirit appeared to Grandfather, but this time as a voice from the sky. Like thunder, the voice shook the landscape. "This, then, is the third sign, the night of the bleeding stars. It will become known throughout the world, for the sky in all lands will be red with the blood of the sky, day and night. It is then, with this sign of the third probable future, that there is no longer hope. Life on the Earth as man has lived it will come to an end, and there can be no turning back, physically or spiritually. It is then, if things are not changed during the second sign, that man will surely know the destruction of the Earth is at hand. It is then that the children of the Earth must run to the wild places and hide. For when the sky bleeds fire, there will be no safety in the world of man."
Grandfather sat in shocked horror as the voice continued.
"From this time, when the stars bleed, to the fourth and final sign, will be four seasons of peace [that is, one year]. It is in these four seasons that the children of the Earth must live deep in the wild places and find a new home, close to the Earth and the Creator. It is only the children of the Earth that will survive, and they must live the philosophy of the Earth, never returning to the thinking of man. And survival will not be enough, for the children of the Earth must also live close to the Spirit. So tell them not to hesitate if and when this third sign becomes manifest in the stars, for there are but four seasons to escape."
Grandfather said that the voice and red sky lingered for a week, and then were gone as quickly as they were manifest.
The Fourth Sign
He did not remember how many days he'd spent at the mouth of the cave, nor did it make a difference, for he had received the Vision he had come for.
It was in his final night at the Eternal Cave that the fourth Vision came to Grandfather, this time carried by the voice of a young child.
The child said, "The fourth and final sign will appear through the next ten winters [that is, ten years] following the night that the stars will bleed. During this time, the Earth will heal itself and man will die. For those ten years, the children of the Earth must remain hidden in the wild places, make no permanent camps, and wander to avoid contact with the last remaining forces of man. They must remain hidden, like the ancient scouts, and fight the urge to go back to the destruction of man. Curiosity could kill many."
There was a long silence, until Grandfather spoke to the child spirit, asking, "And what will happen to the worlds of man?"
There was another period of silence until finally the child spoke again. "There will be a great famine throughout the world, like man cannot imagine. Waters will run vile, the poisons of man's sins running strong in the waters of the soils, lakes and rivers. Crops will fail, the animals of man will die, and disease will kill the masses. The grandchildren will feed upon the remains of the dead, and all about will be the cries of pain and anguish. Roving bands of men will hunt and kill other men for food, and water will always be scarce, getting scarcer with each passing year. The land, the water, the sky will all be poisoned, and man will live in the wrath of the Creator. Man will hide at first in the cities, but there he will die. A few will run to the wilderness, but the wilderness will destroy them, for they had long ago been given a choice. Man will be destroyed, his cities in ruin, and it is then that the grandchildren will pay for the sins of their grandfathers and grandmothers."
"Is there then no hope?" Grandfather asked.
The child spoke again. "There is only hope during the time of the first and second signs. Upon the third sign, the night of the bleeding, there is no longer hope, for only the children of the Earth will survive. Man will be given these warnings; if unheeded, there can be no hope, for only the children of the Earth will purge themselves of the cancers of mankind, of mankind's destructive thinking. It will be the children of the Earth who will bring a new hope to the new society, living closer to the Earth and Spirit."
Then all was silent, the landscape cleared and returned to normal, and Grandfather stepped from the Vision. Shaken, he said that he had wandered for the next season, trying to understand all that had been given to him, trying to understand why he had been chosen.
Grandfather had related the story to me in great detail during that night of the four prophecies. I don't think that any event had been left out, and his emotions and thoughts were such that he actually relived it for us. Thus the power of his Vision became part of our spirit, our driving force, and a big part of our fears. I sat for a long time up on the hill. The fire had gone out, and all had retired to sleep for the night. Creation seemed to be at a standstill, awaiting this darkest part of the night to pass by. I felt alone and vulnerable, as if all of creation were scrutinizing my every thought. …
Grandfather had had this Vision sometime in the 1920s.
Copyright Tom Brown Jnr 1991
Interestingly a reviewer of Brown's book The Quest puts it strongly:
Dear Sirs, I hope you reconsider your decision not to publish this review. On October 7, 1998, the NY Times reported on the biggest Ozone Hole yet seen. To quote the article: "Government scientists said today that the gap in the planet's ozone over Antartica was greater than the size of North America and was the largest ever observed." In addition, on August 13, 2000, a frontpage article in the Sunday NY Times reported on how a formerly benign fungus which has been found in the US from time immemorial was suddenly killing millions of acres of oak trees in California. The article ends on a puzzling note with scientist unable to explain why this disease had become so virulent. However, it is well known that UV radiation affects plants earlier than Humans and one documented effect of UV radiation is a weakening of the immune system. It is not a far stretch of the imagination to theorize that UV radiation may be responsible for this latest plant die-off.
I hope you give these issues consideration :-
Like many people, I used to read the grim newspaper accounts of environmental destruction and wonder what it all meant. Then, in the late 1980s Tom Brown published The Vision and in the final chapter of that book provided the first glimpse into a future most of us want to deny. Now here in The Quest, he lets out all the stops and makes plain for the first time that mankind may very well be doomed.
Brown reveals that as far back as 1962, Grandfather, his Apache Native American Teacher, had warned that the appearance of holes in the sky would mark the beginning of the end of mankind on Earth. Sunlight would become deadly killing everything it touched. Plants would shrivel up and die, crops would fail and starvation would sweep around the world. People would be hunted like deer for food. Many events would foreshadow the appearance of the holes but finally there would be a time of peace. This would mark mankind's last chance to reverse his endless destruction of the Earth. If instead, he concentrated on material gain, all would be lost and the end would come as surely as the Sun rises.
From this beginning, Brown takes us through a series of personal visions wherein he is transported to the future and sees for himself the horrors that await us. In one account, he visits a city where human limbs hang in shop windows and walking skeletons covered with sores roam the streets. Everything reeks with death and Brown watches as a roving band of armed men hunts down an abandoned child, and without remorse, guts and skins him like an animal. Brown makes it clear that this an America city and not some distant third world nation.
Not all the stories deal with the future. Brown relates his own efforts to deny what he knew and avoid taking up his Vision of teaching the ancient tracking and survival skills. At one point, he witnesses a brutal father rob his young son of a promising future. Grandfather then asks Tom what obstacles will stop him from fulfilling his vision ? The question is clearly not meant for Brown alone and foreseeing an excuse many of us will use to deny our share of responsibility Grandfather points to a graveyard and asks 'what will be the measure of your life Grandson? Will it be a lifetime of meaningless toil or one filled with purpose and meaning?'
This is by far Brown's darkest book but how does one sanitize such a horrifying account? There is no science here and those who believe ozone depletion is a figment of some environmentalist's imagination would be better off reading God's Last Offer, by Ed Ayres. Mr. Ayres presents related doomsday scenarios but with the science to back them. To those who are sensitive to the Earth, however Tom Brown's book needs no proof. Its truth is obvious.
The only question left open by Brown is when all this will take place? The question is important because many people will shrug off this account as part of some distant future. Although this book does not provide a time frame a little reading in the scientific press will. It takes thirty years for CFCs to waft through the atmosphere and reach the ozone layer. If all CFC production ceased today, and it hasn't, we would still face 30 more years of degradation. According to NASA, there is already enough CFCs in the upper atmosphere to blow away 70% of the ozone layer. Take a equal amounts of ozone and CFCs, expose them to ultraviolet radiation and one can easily measure the rate of breakdown. The answer you will find is that we have a mere score and ten years left.
Grandfather made it clear that once the holes appear there would be no physical way to heal the Earth. Indeed, Time Magazine writing in the early 90s said that 'the entire world's fleet of 747s operating around the clock, 365 days of the year' could not replace a fraction of the ozone that has already been lost. But Brown does leave us with a ray of hope: if enough people become aware of what is happening, combined we can achieve what technology cannot. Brown is a great believer in the combined efforts of many people working together. Seldom does he speak of grand heroic acts. Each of us, doing a little, can achieve a lot. Be forewarned that if you read this book you will never be able to look at your children in the same way again. Most of us adults living today will not bear the brunt of this horrible future but our children and grandchildren will. If you read this book and do nothing, the Time of Peace will pass and you too, like Brown, will have to answer the screams of your children as they clutch at you in the grave yelling "YOU KNEW, YOU KNEW! WHY DIDN'T YOU DO SOMETHING?"
The "miracle at Fatima" is arguably the most well-known apparition of the Blessed Mother. Her appearance to three shepherd children in Portugal in 1917 was, according to many witnesses, accompanied by several unexplained events, including a shared vision of the sun dancing and moving about erratically in the sky. The three children were Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto. The cousins both died as a result of the “Spanish influenza” epidemic within a few years of their visions. Francisco died in 1919 at age 10, Jacinta the following year at age 9. See here for more info.
During her many appearances to the children, "Our Lady" bestowed upon them three prophecies. The first two were disclosed by Lucia dos Santos, the eldest of the three children, after she wrote them down in July/August 1941, but, at that time, the third and final prophecy could not be revealed. In Jun 1943, Lucia became gravely ill and Bishop da Silva, the Bishop of Leiria/Fatima, feared she would die without revealing the third prophecy. On 15 Sep 1943 the Bishop asked Lucia to write down the third part, but she asked for formal written order. In mid-October 1943 the Bishop wrote to Lucia giving her the order. Lucia fell into "a mysterious and terrible anguish" for 3 months. On Christmas Eve, Lucia confided to her director (she was Sister Lucia — Sister Lucy — in the convent of the Dorothian Sisters of Tuy, in Spain) that she had still been unable to obey the order that she had been given. Finally, on the 02 Jan 1944, (this is very little known) the Blessed Virgin Mary Herself appeared again to Lucia. She confirmed to her that such was truly the Will of God and gave her the light and the strength to accomplish the writing that had been commanded.
"Well, the secret is made up of three distinct parts, two of which I am now going to reveal."
The First Part
"The first is the vision of hell and the designation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as the supreme remedy offered by God to humanity for the salvation of souls. 'In order to save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.'"
The Second Part
“You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI [this is WW2]. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. … In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”
"The Blessed Virgin has told us," Sister Lucy confided to Father Fuentes, "that many nations will disappear from the face of the earth, that Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by heaven to punish the whole world (for its crimes) if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation."
In mid March, 1957, Bishop da Silva entrusted his Auxiliary Bishop Venancio with the responsibility of delivering the precious document to Bishop Cento, the Apostolic Nuncio to Lisbon at that time. Bishop Venancio implored his bishop to finally read the Secret and to make a copy of it before sending the manuscript to Rome, but the old bishop persisted in his refusal. Bishop Venancio, had to content himself with looking at the envelope while holding it up to the light. He could see inside a little sheet of which he measured the exact size. We thus know that the Third Secret is not very long, probably 20 to 25 lines, that is to say about the same length as the Second Secret.
On the 16th of April, 1957, the sealed envelope arrived in Rome. What became of it? It was placed in the office of Pope Pius XII, in a little chest bearing the note, "Secret of the Holy Office". It is Mother Pascalina who confided this to the journalist, Robert Serrou who in turn recently confirmed this fact.
The Secret was finally read by Pope John XXIII in Aug 1959, one year after the death of Pope Pius XII.
On 08 Feb 1960, it was all of a sudden learned through a simple press release that the Third Secret of Fatima would not be revealed. This reluctance to disclose the secret lead to speculation among the faithful that it contained information about our future that was so horrific that the Pope dared not reveal it.
Sister Lucy said before 1986, "The punishments predicted in the Third Secret have already begun."
It was announced by Cardinal Sodano on 13 May 2000, 83 years after the first apparition of the Lady to the children in the Cova da Iria, that the Third Secret would finally be released. In his announcement, Cardinal Sodano implied that the secret was about the persecution of Christians in the 20th century that culminated in the failed assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II on 13 May 1981.
The text of the Third Secret was published on 26 June 2000.
The Third Part
"…After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!'. And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God."
The secret was supposed to be revealed in 1960 but the Vatican refused. I think they were aware of the rumours this would cause and were looking for an event to match the secret. For 20 years there was nothing, then… The Vatican told the world that the secret was a foretelling of the 1981 assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. This scenario hardly describes the attack on John Paul by a lone gunman, Mehmet Ali Agca, right in St. Peter's Square in May, 1981. The setting is not the same, there was no group of soldiers and the Pope, though seriously wounded, was not killed.
There is uncertainty as to whether or not this is the real Secret…
It is believed that the Third Part fits into the end of the Second Part here:
On 10 Sep 1984, Bishop Cosme do Amaral, the present Bishop of Leiria, Fatima, in the Aula Magna (large auditorium) of the Technical University of Vienna, declared in the course of a period of questions and answers: "The Third Secret of Fatima speaks neither of atomic bombs nor of nuclear warheads, nor of SS20 missiles. Its content, he has insisted, concerns only our faith. To identify the Secret with catastrophic announcements or with a nuclear holocaust is to distort the meaning of the Message. The loss of faith of a continent is worse than the annihilation of a nation; and it is true that faith is continually diminishing in Europe."
The real Third Secret?
Says Europe looses it's faith — the hole of Europe. Is this because of the famine predicted by others?
There are a lot of inconsistencies and rumours concerning the third secret and the last surviving child of Fatima — Lucia Santos, who is now known as Sister Lucia or Sister Lucy:
I don't think we'll ever find out the truth, Sister Lúcia of Fátima (28 March 1907 – 13 February 2005) has now passed on and cannot speak out. If the Vatican wanted to release it they would have done by now.
Most of the Second Secret has already passed into history, except "…The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated…" This section of the Second Secret can correspond with my view of the future (roughly), in that there will be a great deal of death associated with European revolution, the Russian invasion of Europe and the NEO strike. The Vatican is sacked by the Italian revolution and the Pope has to flee. The NEO strike will, in essence, annihilate several nations (probably the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark and have a good go at England too).
Therefore, if the Third Secret fitted in after that excerpt then it would be describing Europe after the NEO strike. And that would be the chaotic aftermath and struggle for survival and the beginning of the great world-wide famine. No wonder it will be kept under wraps.
Looking through the prophesies I have seen it appears as if the Virgin Mary is visiting the faithful around the world to warn them of the third Secret: see visitations in Akita, Japan and Our Lady to two young shepherds in La Salette, France and Father Don Stefano Gobbi and Padre Pio da Pietrelcina and Veronica Lueken and The Warning of Garabandal. They all report to be from Mary and all say much the same thing. This has been noticed by the author of the Overview of Catholic Prophecy that was published by the Marian Messenger.
Garabandal is a small village in northern Spain, in the Santander province, near the Picos de Europa mountains, a rugged and beautiful setting. Its full name is San Sebastian of Garabandal. June 18, 1961, marked the beginning of the first phase when St. Michael appeared to the four girl visionaries. After nine more visits by the angel, the Blessed Virgin appeared on July second and subsequently hundreds of times thereafter until the close of the apparitions on November 13, 1965. This four-year span can also be subdivided into the period of frequent apparitions, which lasted from the beginning until January, 1963, and the time of infrequent visions from that time until November, 1965. The four girls did not always receive the apparition together. Sometimes only one, other times two or three of them saw the vision.
One of the girls, Jacinta Moynihan, was interviewed by Frenchmen Jacques Serre and Ramon Perez. Here is one of their questions and Jacinta's answer:
Q. Do you recall anything about a great tribulation, communism or Russia?
A. Yes, it was an invasion, well, something which seemed to me like an invasion; something that was a great evil in which communism played a great part, but I no longer remember which countries or what region was stricken. The Blessed Virgin insisted on telling us to pray (that it be averted). These difficult events will take place before the Warning because the Warning itself will take place when the situation will be at its worst.
In another interview, another of the girls, Mari Loli, said essentially the same thing, that the Warning would come "when we need it the most."
There are three main phases:-
Conchita wrote: "The warning comes directly from God and will be visible to the whole world and from any place where anyone many happen to be. It will be like the revelation of our sins and it will be seen and felt by everyone, believer and unbeliever alike irrespective of whatever religion he may belong to. It will be seen and felt in all parts of the world and by every person."
"It will happen in the sky, no one can prevent it form happening. We will even prefer to be dead rather than to pass through this Warning. It will not kill us. It will be a 'correction' of our conscience. It will cause great fear and will make us reflect within ourselves on the consequences of our own personal sins. It will be like a warning of the punishment to come. In this way the world will be offered a means of purification to prepare itself for the extraordinary grace of the Great Miracle."
- Veronica, June 16, 1973
Jacinta was told by Our Blessed Mother "that the warning would come when conditions were at their worst." The date was not revealed to the visionaries, however Mari-Loli does know the year; and she said that The Miracle will happen within one year after The Warning.
Our Lady has promised a greater miracle in Garabandal so that all may believe the apparitions and be obedient to the message. "As the punishment which we deserve for the sins of the world is great, the miracle must also be a great one, for the world needs it." It will occur on a Thursday on the feast day of a saint devoted to the Eucharist, at 8:30 in the evening, and will last for about one quarter of an hour. It will also coincide with a great event in the Church. The sick who come to Garabandal on that day will be cured, unbelievers will be converted.
If we do not pay attention to the message, the punishment announced by Our Lady will be visited on the whole world after The miracle. During one of their ecstasies the girls were heard praying for the innocent children but, nevertheless, they shed tears at the same time. Since the day they learned about the punishment they have developed a great spirit of sacrifice. They pray very much for sinners and for priests. They often say that if priests are not what they should be many souls will be lost.
Conchita has written: "I cannot reveal what kind of punishment it is except that it will be a result of the direct intervention of God, which makes it more terrible and fearful than anything we can imagine. It will be less painful for innocent babies to die a natural death than for those babies to die because of the punishment. All Catholics should go to confession before the punishment and the others should repent of their sins. When I saw IT (the punishment), I felt a great fear even though at the same time I was seeing Our Blessed Mother. The punishment, if it comes, will come after the miracle"
When Our Lady spoke to the girls of the punishment, her face assumed a look of great sadness. The girls revealed: "We have never seen her look so serious. When she said the words 'The cup is already filling', she spoke in a very low voice."
Description of the Punishment
The Punishment is NEO related:
Veronica — I know it's a comet. It, it's a round ball of fire, and it's traveling at a very fast pace through the sky. And it's so hot! I can feel the heat, the great heat of this long tail. As it's going through space, it's shooting out a tremendous fiery tail. Oh!
"I repeat, My child, your country [Spain] shall not escape the destruction of the fires, as you will be planet-struck.
"As in the days of Noa, My child, many shall reject the Message from Heaven."
- Our Lady, July 25, 1975
"In this chastisement, My children, billions will be lost. Many lives will be lost."
- Our Lady, October 6, 1973
I see a ball of fire; it's coming fast through the sky, and it has a long red tail. It's red, it's fire! And now it's coming down to what looks like a ball, but no, it's the earth. And oh, oh, it has hit through the water; it's brushed through the water. And there are waves rising higher, higher than anything possible I could have seen. The waves are terrible. They're washing half of the continent out to sea.

And it will be known to man because when the Ball of Redemption is used as the chastising agent, you will see it for about two weeks before it ever hits earth. And that, I can assure you, will be a most frightening incident for most.
- Veronica's commentary, July 15, 1973
Oh, my! Our Lady is pointing up to the sky, and I can see a tremendously large ball of fire. It's beyond description. It's the most frightening thing I've ever seen. And it's going through the air at a very fast speed, and I can see over on the right side of the sky an outline of the earth.
And the ball is heading for the earth and it's striking, the tail is setting fire to the side, I can see here, of the earth. Oh! Oh! The tail has intersected the earth, and the ball is now circling the earth. Oh! Now it's growing very dark. I can feel the great heat. Ohh!
- Veronica, August 21, 1976
And the globe now is one of the world, but there are flames on one side. I am almost looking now into the area. There are flames, and there's a big hole. Oh, it covers half of the globe, the hole. It's like burned out, as though it's been hit by a tremendous big ball of fire. Oh, it's terrible. I can feel the heat.
Now I notice that there is a tremendous ball now setting out in the sky by the sun. It's like two giant suns in the sky. But the ball on the right has a tail, and it's starting to move now around the sun. And as it goes it's bouncing crazily…
And it's heading now over towards the earth again. It's hit it once, and something happened. And now it's heading for another part of the globe. It's turned its course completely around and is striking the globe; I can see now the whole underside of the globe in flames.
- Veronica, April 14, 1984
I see a great light, a flash! It's so hot, this flash! Oh, there's a large ball of fire. Oh, it's very hot, and it's whirling through the sky, and it's shooting off sparks behind it. The sparks — they're large pieces of rock, and they're falling, falling down.
Now the waters, the waters are rising very high. I can see the waters. Oh! Oh! Oh, the waters have come in. They're so high! And I see some cities. I see a large city, and the waters are now — oh, they're pounding against the ground. And now I see the buildings — they're falling! Now the ground is cracking, and the buildings are falling into the holes. Oh! Oh! Oh!
Bishop John Shojiro Ito, local bishop of the region of Akita, Japan, declared the Marian apparitions of Our Lady Akita to be of supernatural origin. Below is the exact text of Our Lady's messages in Akita:
Revealed on 10/13/73 to Sr Agnes Sasagawa:
Revealed to the Marian Movement of Priests on 9/15/87:
The following excellent overview of Catholic Prophecy was originally published by the Marian Messenger:
MARY WARNS, SCIENTISTS CONFIRM: A FIERY THREAT TO THE EARTH
by the Marian Messenger Editorial Board
"Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity."
Apparitions of the Virgin Mary warn of this punishment for mankind. It may happen before the century ends. Astronomers now seem to confirm the threat.
URGENT MESSAGE OF FATIMA
On July 13, 1917, Our Lady appeared to three children at FATIMA, Portugal and made the following remarkable prophecies.
It is remarkable how this Marian apparition had accurately foretold the first seven items. The Wall Street journal (September 27, 1991) featured an article entitled, "Fatima Fever: Did Mary Prophesy Soviet Goings-On? Believers say Blessed Virgin Beat CNN to the News by More than 74 years."
The said article quotes Francis Irons, a former Defense Department analyst: "Recent events in the Soviet Union are 'only explainable in supernatural terms,' he said."
A TIME magazine cover story on the Virgin Mary (December 30, 1991) highlights the following quote: "The world will recognize in due time that the defeat of communism came at the intercession of the mother of Jesus."
One of the visionaries, Lucia dos Santos, entered the convent. Sister Lucia was told that she would live to see all the Fatima messages fulfilled. She is now over 90 years old. So she will see the persecution of the Church and the Holy Father, the martyrdom of the good, the annihilation of nations, and the Virgin's Triumph.
Mary at Fatima calls mankind to turn away from sin — or face annihilation. The nature of the punishment is hinted by the miracle of the sun: the ball of fire came crashing to the earth.
Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, the Vatican's chief theologian, said, "A stern warning has been launched from Fatima which is directed… to the perils which threaten humanity today."
Fatima expert to Pope John paul II, Fr. Joseph de Ste. Marie, said "Let there be no hysteria concerning dates or concerning expectation of chastisements. The dates are unknown, the chastisement certain."
FIRE FROM THE SKY THIS ENDING CENTURY
Marian apparitions imply that the chastisement threatens mankind as the 20th century ends.
Another visionary APPROVED by the Church is Sister Agnes Sasagawa of Akita, Japan. In the apparition of October 13, 1973, the Virgin said,
As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead.
Bishop John Ito of Akita was very reluctant to approve the apparitions. It meant confirming the truth of the terrible warning. He went to Rome again even after two commissions working for more than 10 years called the apparitions authentic. The Vatican told him to go ahead with the approval.
A journalist asked Bishop Ito, "What is the message of Akita?" The bishop answered, "It is the message of Fatima."
In 1991 the bishop said in a statement, "It seems to me that our Heavenly Father needs to purify this corrupt world before allowing mankind to enter the 21st century."
Other apparitions APPROVED by the Catholic Church speak of the urgency of the 20th century: Quito (Ecuador), Corota (Italy), Betania (Venezuela), Cuapa (Nicaragua). The many other apparitions under investigation declare the same urgency.
Numbers alone are significant. In the 19th century, there were only 5 Marian apparitions. In the 20th century there is an explosion of more than 300 apparitions scattered around the globe.
SCIENTISTS CONFIRM THREAT TO EARTH
Astronomers now warn that yes, the Earth faces the danger of fire from the sky. Here are some clippings:
Caution: the astronomers are NOT saying that there is a particular asteroid or comet on a direct collision course with Earth. At least not yet. (A check with PAGASA reveals no asteroid/comet headed exactly this way.) However, one visionary says that the astronomers will later raise the alert but the public will not believe them.
FATIMA POPE: JOHN PAUL II
On May 13, 1981, on the anniversary of Mary's first apparition at Fatima, John Paul II was almost killed. The gun was aimed at his head, but the Pope was saved when he turned to a young girl wearing a picture of Our Lady of Fatima. The assassin fired two more shots at the abdomen.
At first John Paul II did not pay attention to the fact that his brush with death took place on May 13. The Pope took the message more seriously. While in the hospital, he asked for the documents on Fatima, wrote to Sister Lucia, and reread the famous undisclosed Third Secret of Fatima.
John Paul II then obeyed the Virgin's request. Together with the bishops of the world he consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in March 1984. One year after, In March 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev came to power, and the world watched as communism collapsed.
Pope John Paul II is now getting the Church ready for the great Fatima events as humanity enters the third millennium. He said in Crossing the Threshold of Hope, "Mary appeared to the three children at Fatima in Portugal and spoke to them words that now, at the end of this century, seem close to their fulfillment."
His subtle program is superior to sounding the alarm. It is the best preparation of all: prayer. Catholics are to spend in special prayer the years, 1997, 1998 and 1999. That is the subject of his Apostolic Letter Tertio Millennio Adveniente.
"The Pope seems to be hoping for some equivalent 'collapse' in the power of evil, some great new 'springtime' for Christianity and the world," says the journal Inside the Vatican (December 1994), commenting on the document.
TIME OF TRIAL: A SEQUENCE OF COMING EVENTS
The Marian Messenger complied the messages on the events awaiting this ending century. The product of this research is a paper called "The Fatima Countdown: Coming Events According to the Marian Messages."
The events are based primarily on apparitions which have been officially approved by the Catholic Church. Pending apparitions, or those not yet approved, repeat the themes and reveal more details.
These events are controversial and may sound hard to believe. The Church teaches that she will indeed pass through a final trial, but she does not say when this will happen.
Catholics are not obliged to believe these messages, even as the Church allows the faithful to distribute them. Believing the Marian messages is a personal decision. We in the Marian messenger submit to the authority of the Catholic Church as regards apparitions under investigation.
Here is a summary of the sequence.
FAMILIES PROTECTED BY JESUS AND MARY
When the atom bomb destroyed Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, it somehow spared a building only eight blocks away from ground zero. In it were living eight Jesuits who were unharmed by the blast, heat, and radiation.
Some 200 scientists have examined the priests, trying to determine why they were unhurt. Speaking on American TV, the German Jesuit Father Hubert Shiffner gave the startling answer:
How does one live the Fatima message? How can families secure Mary's protection?
Here is a sample consecration prayer:
I a faithless sinner renew today in Your hands the vows of my baptism. I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and his works, and I give myself entirely to Your Sacred Heart, O Lord Jesus Christ. I will carry my cross after You all the days of my life and will be more faithful to You that I have ever been before.
I choose you this day for my mother and Queen, O Blessed Virgin Mary. I deliver and consecrate to your Immaculate Heart my body and soul, my family and all those dear to me, my parish, and my country. Use us according to your good pleasure and for the greater glory of God. Amen.

In his collection of Voix Prophetiques (1872), Abbe Curique of Metz, France, included this anonymous prediction:
Liber Mirabilis is a collection of Medieval prophecies, first published in 1524. It was translated from Latin to French by Jean de Vatiguerro in 1831. The following anonymous apocalyptic prophecy is drawn from the book:
A Brazilian living in Sao Paulo and writing under the pseudonym of Dino Kraspedon claimed that the following prophecy, published in England in 1958 in My Contact with Flying Saucers, was given him by the captain of a flying saucer:
One of the Mayan prophecies for the time period called Katun 2 Ahau that starts on December 21, 2012 and ends in 2032 is a famine for half the world. For the period 2032-2052 they predict a NEO impact.
In December, 1982, Ricky Randolph, a Georgia Department of Corrections Correctional Officer, was involved in a hunting accident and had a near-death experience. He was told:
"You must return and help others to change by changing your life. Physicians will want to perform surgery on you. Do not let this happen. If you do you will never walk again. You will be visited by one who will bring you answers to the questions you have. When I call you will come again. You will recover from all that has happened if you do these things. Look and see what lies ahead."
Devoutly religious Newton wrote theological treatises interpreting Biblical prophecies and predicting the end of the world. The date he arrived at: 2060.
In a 1704 letter Newton describes his "recconing":
Later, probably after 1705, he writes:
The editorial insertions are Professor Snobelen’s, who thinks the letter dates "from after 1705", and that "the shaky handwriting suggests a date of composition late in Newton’s life." Whatever the exact date, we see him much less certain here; Newton pushes around some other dates — 2344, 2090 (or 2132), 2374. All of them seem arbitrary, but "given the nice roundness of the number," writes Motherboard, "and the fact that it appears in more than one letter," 2060 has become his most memorable dating for the apocalypse.
It’s important to note that Newton didn’t believe the world would "end" in the sense of cease to exist or burn up in holy flames. His end times philosophy resembles that of a surprising number of current day evangelicals: Christ would return and reign for a millennium, the Jewish diaspora would return to Israel and would, he wrote, set up "a flourishing and everlasting Kingdom." We hear such statements often from televangelists, school boards, governors, and presidential candidates.
As a single date, Newton was calculating the end of the era (i.e. after all the earth changes have completed) — not a beginning of the change. That date, 2060, fits so well with my predictions!
The Islamic terrorist threat seems to be here to stay and because IS are in a rather unique situation they get a section here of their own.
In June 2014, the IS group formally declared the establishment of a "caliphate" — a state governed in accordance with Islamic law, or Sharia, by God's deputy on Earth, or caliph. It has demanded that Muslims across the world swear allegiance to its leader — Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim al-Badri al-Samarrai, better known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — and migrate to territory under its control. IS has also told other jihadist groups worldwide that they must accept its supreme authority. Many already have, among them several offshoots of the rival al-Qaeda network. IS seeks to eradicate obstacles to restoring God's rule on Earth and to defend the Muslim community, or umma, against infidels and apostates.
IS can trace its roots back to the late Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian who set up Tawhid wa al-Jihad in 2002. A year after the US-led invasion of Iraq, Zarqawi pledged allegiance to Osama Bin Laden and formed al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), which became a major force in the insurgency. After Zarqawi's death in 2006, AQI created an umbrella organisation, Islamic State in Iraq (ISI). ISI was steadily weakened by the US troop surge and the creation of Sahwa (Awakening) councils by Sunni Arab tribesmen who rejected its brutality. Baghdadi, a former US detainee, became leader in 2010 and began rebuilding ISI's capabilities. By 2013, it was once again carrying out dozens of attacks a month in Iraq. It had also joined the rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, setting up the al-Nusra Front. In April 2013, Baghdadi announced the merger of his forces in Iraq and Syria and the creation of "Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant" (Isis). The leaders of al-Nusra and al-Qaeda rejected the move, but fighters loyal to Baghdadi split from al-Nusra and helped Isis remain in Syria. At the end of December 2013, Isis shifted its focus back to Iraq and exploited a political stand-off between the Shia-led government and the minority Sunni Arab community. Aided by tribesmen and former Saddam Hussein loyalists, Isis took control of the central city of Falluja. In June 2014, Isis overran the northern city of Mosul, and then advanced southwards towards Baghdad, massacring its adversaries and threatening to eradicate the country's many ethnic and religious minorities. At the end of the month, after consolidating its hold over dozens of cities and towns, Isis declared the creation of a caliphate and changed its name to "Islamic State".
The group has welcomed the prospect of direct confrontation with the US-led coalition (still in force after Iraq, because of the troubles in the area and subsequent rebellion in Syria), viewing it as a harbinger of an end-of-times showdown between Muslims and their enemies described in Islamic apocalyptic prophecies
Interestingly, the IS demands to Muslims are working and it attracts families that are disillusioned in Europe that choose to move lock, stock and barrel to a war zone! It has also attracted more than 28,000 foreign fighters — while about a quarter of the foreign fighters are from the West (at least 5,000), the majority are from nearby Arab countries, such as Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Jordan and Morocco.
Islamic State has become one of the most formidable jihadist groups in the world. IS fighters have access to, and are capable of using, a wide variety of small arms and heavy weapons, including truck-mounted machine-guns, rocket launchers, anti-aircraft guns and portable surface-to-air missile systems. They have also captured tanks and armoured vehicles from the Syrian and Iraqi armies. Their haul of vehicles from the Iraqi army includes armoured Humvees and bomb-proof trucks originally manufactured for the US military. Some have been packed with explosives and used to devastating effect in suicide bomb attacks. The group is believed to have a flexible supply chain that ensures a constant supply of ammunition and small arms for its fighters. Their considerable firepower helped them overrun Kurdish Peshmerga positions in northern Iraq in August 2014 and the Iraqi army in Ramadi in May 2015.
The militant group is believed to be the world's wealthiest. It initially relied on wealthy private donors and Islamic charities in the Middle East keen to oust Syria's President Assad. Although such funding is still being used to finance the travel of foreign fighters to Syria and Iraq, the group is now largely self-funding. In 2014 IS may have earned as much as several million dollars per week, or $100m in total, from the sale of crude oil and refined products to local middlemen, who in turn smuggled them in Turkey and Iran, or sold them to the Syrian government. Kidnapping also generated at least $20m in ransom payments in 2014, while IS raises several million dollars per month through extorting the millions of people living in areas under its full or partial control. IS is believed to raise at least several million dollars per month by robbing, looting, and extortion. Payments are extracted from those who pass through, conduct business in, or simply live in IS territory under the auspices or providing services or 'protection'. Religious minorities are forced to pay a special tax. IS profits from raiding banks, selling antiquities, and stealing or controlling sales of livestock and crops. Abducted girls and women have meanwhile been sold as sex slaves.
IS members are jihadists who adhere to an extreme interpretation of Sunni Islam and consider themselves the only true believers. They hold that the rest of the world is made up of unbelievers who seek to destroy Islam, justifying attacks against other Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Beheadings, crucifixions and mass shootings have been used to terrorise their enemies. IS members have justified such atrocities by citing the Koran and Hadith, but generally Muslims have denounced them.
This section on IS is here because many prophecies include an Islamic invasion of Europe. Before 2014, and the creation of IS, this was thought to be impossible, or at least very highly improbable. But the situation has changed. IS is already on the Syrian border facing Turkey. Turkey is part of NATO and thus the links to IS, Turkey and Europe are set. Any attack on a NATO partner will be considered an attack on them all, so IS could soon be at war directly with NATO. If IS continues to grow and the ‘Muslim Jihad’ continues to spread, IS could be a credible threat to the whole of Europe if Europe is weakened by a catastrophic series of events.
Were there to be a NEO strike on Europe in the near future and IS are strong enough, there could easily be a ‘Muslim Jihad’ invasion of Europe.
It's not only Nostradamus who prophesied a Muslim invasion of Europe, IS did too!
I have to try and find out when these troubles will start.
At the start there is high food prices and famine that precedes the unrest in Europe — so can I identify a future economic collapse to find when this all starts?
Following the troubles seems to be the Russian invasion and WW3 — can I trace timings and cycles to see if there is any way to predict when the next big war will start?
Many of the periods of time are quite large and indistinct. They also seem to tie in with catastrophes that have happened. The most regular of the long cycles are the
There are three Milankovitch cycles, The term is named for Serbian geophysicist and astronomer Milutin Milanković. In the 1920s, he hypothesized that variations in
of the Earth's orbit resulted in cyclical variation in the solar radiation reaching the Earth, and that this orbital forcing strongly influenced climatic patterns on Earth.
405ky: The most static of these cycles is related to the eccentricity of Earth's orbit. Scientists have confirmed a longstanding hypothesis that Earth's orbit is warped by the gravitational pull of Jupiter and Venus in an epic cycle that repeats regularly every 405,000 years - see the latest.
The angle of tilt on earth's axis changes over a 41,000 year cycle. This causes more or less sunlight to reach the ice caps at the poles.
Earth does not stay entirely still when it orbits the sun, but rather 'wobbles' slowly on its axis, much like a child’s spinning top. This causes the amount of sunlight hitting the earth to vary. (19k and 23k years).
25,850 years = One Grand Year
The earth's axis slowly changes direction. It is this change of direction which makes the sun appear to retrograde through all the signs of the Zodiac. A complete revolution takes place once every 25,850 years and is called "Precession of the Equinoxes". This period is one grand year in the lifetime of the earth. (Apparently 25,765 years to be accurate.)
2,150 years = Earth's smaller year
A Grand Year divided by 12. It's smaller year is 2,150 which the sun takes to retrograde one entire sign of the Zodiac. (More accurately 2154.166… years.)
70 years and 9 months = Day of Time
A Smaller Year divided by 30. The "Day of Time" is measured by its passing from one degree to another. There are 30 degrees in each zodiacal sign. Thirty degrees in each of the twelve signs makes 360 degrees of a Grand Year. (More accurately 71.8055… years.)
The Age of Pisces to Aquarius
No one can definitely define when the Age of Pisces started and a similar problem exists with the passing into Aquarius. So for an accurate timing of the next catastrophe this isn't much good. But it may get within 100 years and that is as good an indication as you can get.
Assuming we are at the changeover and approaching (or already started) the Age of Aquarius then we must expect some catastrophe; for history says that every changeover is accompanied by catastrophic events. If this is true we should find some evidence in history.
I think it is safe to say that the transition into the Age of Aquarius will bring a cosmic event. See what I found here.
Every twelve Grand years (309,180 years) an electromagnetic wave surges across the solar system. Apparently this wave is due during the next precession. I can't seem to find much data on this event — is it just conjecture?
Cayce's Economic Cycle
Edgar Cayce reported a 24/25 year economic cycle (and indicated there is a 7 year cycle too):
The normal interval is 25 years, but after a large depression the interval is 24 years. This is already in the table after the Great Depression and I have put another in the table after the forecasted 2nd Great Depression of 2032. Despite the Bush Depression of 2007 being a long and often quoted twin-depression, I don't think it is severe enough to warrant a 24 year following period.
The Kondratieff Wave
The study of economic cycles affords a uniquely objective view of capitalism, which reveals itself to be a self-correcting process distinguished by regular periods of expansion and contraction. Several major and minor cycles of business have been isolated. The longest and most important of these, called the Kondratieff Wave, is named after Professor Nikolai Kondratieff, who directed the Business Research Institute at Moscow for several years after the Russian Revolution.
Kondratieff concluded that prices moved in cycles, with periods of overall expansion of about 24 years, followed by periods of overall decline running from 23 to 25 years. Scholars of Kondratieff Theory have noted that tops, the end of expansions (e.g. 1814, 1873, 1920, and 1970) followed within a few years of unpopular wars [War of 1812 (unpopular with Americans with strong British sentiment), Civil War (1860-1865), World War I (1914-1918), and Vietnam (1965-1970)]. At the same time, upswings or recoveries began a few years after “popular” wars [Revolutionary (1775-1781), Mexican (1846-1848), Spanish-American (1895-1898) and World War II (1941-1945)].
I know this is all very pointedly US based, but the UK and US are quite closely linked economically — probably closer than the economic link between the UK and Europe oddly enough.
Starting from a peak, the pattern is:
Unfortunately this wave isn't uniform — see them here — particularly the current wave that appears to be somewhat longer than usual (see below).
Other Time Cycles
This work seems to indicate a great possibility of troubles or a big war around 2030.

Financial forecaster Martin A. Armstrong's predictions are based on a model of economic confidence that he developed in the 1970s. Martin Armstrong revealed the existence of a political cycle that is 224 years in length and gives massive amounts of evidence of how this cycle has been dominant for thousands of years all over the world. He developed the Economic Confidence Model during the 1970s which is related to the 224 political cycle. "Aside from the importance of the number of days of the 8.6 year cycle constituting 3141 days or roughly Pi, the data that this cycle emerged from was a period of 224 years spanning between 1683 and 1907. There were 26 financial panics during this 224 year period that produced the actual time frame of 8.61538 years." While he found that this cycle moved in waves of intensity that built up into 6 groups of waves forming a major wave of 51.6923 years, this is not the only timing interval that is important for understanding of the business cycle he said. He claims he developed a 32,000-variable super-computer based on the model, with “perhaps the largest economic database in the world”.
Recent events in the world’s stock markets show the stunning accuracy with which Armstrong’s pi-cycle model can forecast markets, with investors panicking right on cue on 27 February 2007. The next major slump is forecast for 18 June 2011. Over the longer term, the next 51.7-year confidence cycle will end in 2032, plunging markets into a 1930s-style depression.
Iben Browning, considered a wide variety of climate-influencing cycles ranging from “polar vortex peripheral oscillations” (6.6496 days) to polar precessional periods (25,920 years). However, Browning also based much of his work on the sunspot cycles (11.125 and 178 years) and the “Tidal beat” (19 and 179 years). He took into account as well the planet Jupiter and its tidal force on the sun and possible effect on the sunspot cycle at perihelion (every 11.862 years). He has correlated high tidal forces with the birth of great conquerors of the world, from Alexander the Great, Attila the Hun, and Charlesmagne, to Napoleon, Mao Tse-Tung and Hitler; and low tidal forces with the birth of such religious revelationists as Guatama Buddha, Jesus Christ, Confucius, and Mohammed, along with the founders of Shintoism, Sufi and Sikhism. Another 800-year cycle has been correlated with large scale migrations of peoples worldwide, and will peak again about the year 2000. In the last sixty years, for example, something on the order of 150 million people have been involuntarily displaced (such numbers consider only migrations involving more than a million people). The spectre looms that the coming decades will see much larger migrations, and in all probability, will be motivated by war, famine, lack of jobs, and religious and/or political persecution.
In his book with N. Winkless, Browning has also identified cycles in “deaths from earthquakes” (4.425 and 9.3 years), and “accumulated volcanic dust from eruptions” (4.425 and 8.85 years). High times for earthquakes are predicted for early 2003, late 2007, and spring of 2011, while high times for volcanic activity are expected in roughly the same time periods. The volcanic activity is also important because of dust thrown into the air, which can cool the planet, reduce crop yields and result in famines in many parts of the world (and thus motivate large scale migrations). Famines were a major concern of Browning, particularly, in countries where food production is 'intensive' (i.e. where every available plot of ground is used for farming).
Based on these and other cycles, Browning predicted increasing earthquake activity for the last two decades of the Twentieth Century (there were 27 earthquakes worldwide in the seventies and eighties which caused a thousand deaths or more), as well as major volcanic activity, cooling temperatures forcing crop growing areas to move south by hundreds of miles, and famines nullifying the annual birth rate of 75 million humans and causing the world population to subside by some 10 to 25% in the next several decades. Browning also forecast, on the basis of a “plague cycle” occurring every 400 years, that AIDS would wipe out 50% of the human race by 2040 to 2050.
However if, by chance, it wasn't AIDS but was actually famine fuelled plague, then it would fall more appropriately in with the story that is unfolding here!
There are a number of good sites that analyse predictions. Although many of them do not interpret the prophesies exactly as I have, they are still very useful.
From the places identified by the seers (see them grouped on my clues page), I plotted the named towns and areas onto a map and found they roughly joined up into a line — or, as Alois Irlmaier put it, a "strip is created, straight from the Black Sea to the North Sea".
My plotted map of the NEO path (large)

Is this strip the path of the NEO, sweeping low and burning a furrow across Europe until it hits the sea north of Amsterdam? I really don't know. Or is it breaking up into a few pieces that hit along the line of trajectory?
2029 impact track for Apophis
Although NASA seem to have the trajectory heading south-west and I have it going north-east, the map is almost identical to mine! This is absolutely staggering — is this just a coincidence? Really?
Although Apophis is supposed to miss Earth in 2029, the impact path is just too similar to the path I drew. What will happen?
Friday, 13 April 2029 is the Telling Day
Friday the 13th — unlucky for some!
Due on this day in 2029, Apophis will make a very, very close pass on Earth. There are points in space, called 'key holes'. If Apophis passes through a 'key hole', the gravitational pull of the Earth will alter Apophis' path. It's due another very near pass in 2036 too, so any path alteration may have dramatic effects!
With all the information I have gathered I believe something will happen during the 2029 pass. Apophis will hit the Moon and crash to Earth or just hit Earth. Something will happen. Everything seems to points to Apophis and 2029 as being the starting point.
|Having collected this information, read how I sort the data to gather clues to the events in our near future.|
