46. Barthalomew Holzhauser ~
Barthalomew Holzhauser was a parish priest and an ecclesiastical
writer. He was born in 1613 at Laugna in Bavaria, and died in 1658.
Holzhauser came from a very large, poor family, but eventually he
managed to gain an education and became a theologist. He served as a
pastor and a dean, and founded a religious community. (6)
Holzhauser was renowned for his extraordinary cures. He wrote
several books, including his Visions (1646). Several of the ten
visions have been fulfilled. The following describes a Great Monarch
and Holy Pope, and a period of status consolationis, lasting from
the Holy Pope to the Antichrist. It is followed by the status desolationis, lasting from the Antichrist till the end of the world:
"[After a world war] will come a new period, in which two mighty
ones will face each other. The wrangle between these two will begin
in the second half of the twentieth century. It will overthrow
mountains and silt up rivers. A great change will come to pass, such
as no mortal man will have expected; Heaven and Hell will confront
each other in this struggle, old states will perish and light and
darkness will be pitted against each other with swords, but it will
be swords of a different fashion. With these swords it will be
possible to cut up the skies and split the earth. A great lament
will come over all mankind and only a small batch will survive the
storm, the pestilence and the horror. And neither of the two
adversaries will conquer nor be vanquished. Both mighty ones will
lie on the ground, and a new mankind will come into existence. God
possesses the key to everything. Blessed is he who will then be able
to praise him, having obeyed all his commandments. And the great
monarch of the world will create new laws for the new mankind and
will cause a new age to begin, in which there will be only one flock
and one shepherd, and peace will be of long, long duration, for the
glory of God in heaven and on earth...
"When everything has been ruined by war; when Catholics are hard
pressed by traitorous co-religionists and heretics; when the Church
and her servants are denied their rights, the monarchies have been
abolished and their rulers murdered... Then the Hand of Almighty God
will work a marvelous change, something apparently impossible
according to human understanding. There will rise a valiant monarch
anointed by God. He will be a Catholic, a descendant of Louis IX,
yet a descendant of an ancient imperial German family, born in
exile. He will rule supreme in temporal matters. The Pope will rule
supreme in spiritual matters at the same time. Persecution will
cease and justice shall rule. Religion seems to be suppressed, but
by the changes of entire kingdoms it will be made more firm.
"He will root out false doctrines and destroy the rule of Moslemism.
His dominion will extend from the East to the West. All nations will
adore God their Lord according to the Catholic teaching. There will
be many wise and just men. The people will love justice, and peace
will reign over the whole earth, for divine power will bind Satan
for many years until the coming of the Son of Perdition.
"The reign of the
Great Ruler may be compared with that of Caesar
Augustus who became Emperor after his victory over his enemies,
thereby giving peace to the world, also with the reign of
Constantine the Great, who was sent by God, after severe
persecution, to deliver both the Church and State.
"On account of a terrible war Germany will wail, France will be the
cause of all the woe, Germany will be terribly wounded, all will be
impoverished. England shall suffer much. The King shall be killed.
"After desolation has reached its peak in England, peace will be
restored and England will return to the Catholic faith with greater
fervor than before.
"The Great Monarch will have the special help of God and be
"The Fifth Epoch of time dates from the reign of Charles V until the
reign of the Great Monarch.
"The Sixth Age of the Spirit commences with the powerful Monarch and
the Holy Pontiff... and will last until the appearance of the
Antichrist. This will be an age of consolation in which God will
console His Spirit of the affliction and the great tribulation of
the preceding age. All the nations will be united in the Catholic
faith. The sacerdocy will flower more than ever, and men will seek
the kingdom of God in all solicitude.
"The Lord will give good pastors to the Church. Men will live in
peace, each in his own field. They will be reconciled with the one
God. They will live in the shadow of the powerful Monarch and of his
"Many saints and doctors will flourish in the earth. Men will love
reason and justice. Peace will reign in all the universe, because
the divine power will bind Satan for many years, until the son of
perdition will rave anew.
"The Sixth Epoch of the World, which commences with the emancipation
of the people of Israel and the restoration of the Temple and of the
city of Jerusalem, will endure until the advent of Jesus Christ.
"For likewise, in this epoch, the people of Israel will be consoled
to a very high degree by the Lord, our God, who will deliver them
from the captivity of Babylon. The kingdoms, the nations, and the
people will submit to the Roman Empire, furiously vanquished by the
very powerful and very illustrious monarch who will govern during
fifty-six years, rendering the peace of the universe and reigning
alone until the advent of Jesus Christ and even after him. Thus, in
the Sixth Age, God will delight his Church with the greatest
"For, although, in the Fifth Age, we saw everywhere the most
deplorable calamities: whereas all is devastated by war; that the
Church and its members are rendered tributaries; that the subjects
are tormented and that all men conspire to erect republics: man
himself will be so astonishingly changed by the hand of God, such
that no one can imagine humanity. For the powerful monarch, who will
come like an envoy of God, will destroy the republics thoroughly in
climax; he will subdue all to his will and will employ his zeal in
favor of the true Church of Christ. All the heresies will be
relegated to hell. The empire of the Turks will be broken and this
monarch will reign in the orient and in the occident. All the
nations will come and adore the Lord their God in the true Catholic
and Roman faith.
"Now the Great Monarch also will dominate over all the beasts of the
earth, that is to say over the barbarian nations, over the
rebellious peoples, over the heretic republics and over all men
dominated by their evil passions.
"It is in that age that the relation of the sixth Spirit of the Lord
will be known, that is to say the Spirit of Wisdom that God diffuses
over all the surfaces of the globes in those times. For men will
fear the Lord their God, they will observe the law and serve it with
all their heart. The sciences will be multiplied and complete on the
earth. The Holy Scriptures will be unanimously understood, without
controversy and without the errors of heresies. Men will be
enlightened, so much as in the natural sciences and in the celestial
"Finally, the Sixth Church, the Church of Philadelphia, is the type
of this sixth age, for Philadelphia signifies friendship of
brothers, and again guarding the heritage in union with the Lord.
Now all these characters convene perfectly in the sixth age, in
which they will have love, concord and perfect peace and in which
the powerful Monarch will have to consider almost the entire world
as his heritage. He will deliver up the earth, with the aid of the
Lord his God from all his enemies, of ruin and of all evil."
47. St. Francisco de Paola ~
Saint Francisco de Paola of Italy (1416-1507), founder of the order
of Minim friars, was a miracle worker whose spiritual graces
included prophecy. In that wise, St. Francis foretold the rise of a
great Christian military leader out of Italy sometime in the future:
"The great leader of the holy militia of the Holy Spirit shall
overcome the world, and shall possess the earth so completely that
no king or lord shall be able to exist, except that he belongs to
the sacred host of the Holy Ghost. These devout men shall wear on
their breasts, and much more within their hearts, the sign of the
living God, namely, the Cross.
"The first members of this holy order shall be natives of the city
where iniquity, vice and sin abound. However, they shall be
converted from evil to good; from rebels against God they shall
become most fervent and most faithful in His divine service. That
city shall be cherished by God and by the Great Monarch, the elect
and the beloved of the Most High Lord. For the sake of that place
all holy souls who have done penance in it shall pray in the sight
of God for that city and its inhabitants. When the time shall come
of the immense and most right justice of the Holy Spirit, His Divine
Majesty wills that such city become converted to God, and that many
of its citizens follow the great prince of the holy army. The first
person that will openly wear the sign of the living God shall belong
to that city, because he will through a letter be commanded by a
holy hermit to have it impressed upon his heart and to wear it
externally on his breast.
"That man will begin to meditate on the secrets of God, about the
long visitation which the Holy Spirit will make and the dominion
that he will exercise over the world through the holy militia. O!
happy man, who shall receive from the Most High the greatest
privileges! He will interpret the hidden secrets of the Holy Ghost,
and he shall often excite the admiration of men by his revealed
knowledge of the internal secrets of their hearts. Rejoice, my Lord,
because that Prince above other princes, and King over other kings,
will hold you in the greatest veneration, and after having been
crowned with three most admirable crowns, will exalt that city, will
declare it free, and the seat of the Empire, and it shall become one
of the first cities in the world...
"He shall be a first-born son; in his childhood he will be like a
saint; in his youth, a great sinner; then he will be converted
entirely to God and will do great penance; his sins will be forgiven
him, and he will become a great saint.
"He shall be a great captain and prince of holy men, who shall be
called "the holy Cross-bearers of Jesus Christ," with whom he shall
destroy the Mahometan sect and the rest of the infidels. He shall
annihilate all the heresies and tyrannies of the world. He shall
reform the church of God by means of his followers, who shall be the
best men upon earth in holiness, in arms, in science, and in every
virtue, because such is the will of the Most High. They shall obtain
the dominion of the whole world, both temporal and spiritual, and
they shall support the Church of God until the end of time.
"God almighty shall exalt a very poor man of the blood of Emperor
Constantine, son of St. Helena, and of the seed of Pepin, who shall
on his breast wear a red Cross. Through the power of the Most High
he shall confound the tyrants, the heretics, and infidels. He will
gather a grand army, and the angels shall fight for them; they shall
kill all Godís enemies.
"From the beginning of the world, after the creation of man, and to
the end of human generations, there have been and there shall be
seen wonderful events upon the earth. Four hundred years shall not
pass when his Divine Majesty shall visit the world with a new
religious order much needed, which shall effect more good among men
than all other religious institutions combined. This religious order
shall be the last and the best in the Church; it shall proceed with
arms, with prayer, and with hospitality. Woe to tyrants, to
heretics, and to infidels, to whom no pity shall be shown, because
such is the will of the most high! An infinite number of wicked men
shall perish through the hands of the Cross-bearers, the true
servants of Jesus Christ. They shall act like good husbandmen when
they extirpate noxious weeds and prickly thistles from the wheat
field. Those holy servants of God shall purify the earth with the
deaths of innumerable wicked men.
"How spiritually blind are those persons who, having no thought
about things of God, fix their end in earthly objects. Wretched men!
by far worse than the very beasts which are guided by their sense,
because they cannot reason, they become brutalized. Hence they shall
ever be in confusion. Let, therefore, the princes of this world be
prepared for the greatest scourges to fall upon them. But from whom?
First from heretics and infidels, then from the holy and most
faithful Cross-bearers elected by the Most High, who, not succeeding
in converting the heretics with science, shall have to make vigorous
use of their arms. Many cities and villages shall be in ruins, with
the deaths of an innumerable quantity of bad and good men. The
infidels also shall fight against Christians and heretics, sacking,
destroying, and killing the largest portion of Christians. Lastly,
the army, styled "of the Church," namely, the holy Cross-bearers,
shall move, not against Christians or Christianity, but against
those infidels in pagan countries, and they shall conquer all those
kingdoms with the death of a very great number of infidels. After
this they shall turn their victorious arms against bad Christians,
and destroy all the rebels against Jesus Christ.
Cross-bearers shall reign and dominate holily over the world until
the end of time... But when shall this take place? When crosses with
the stigmas shall be seen, and the crucifix shall be carried as the
standard... This standard will be admired by all good Catholics; but
at the beginning it will be derided by bad Christians and by
infidels. Their sneers shall, however, be changed into mourning when
they shall witness the wonderful victories achieved through it
against tyrants, heretics, and infidels... That man (the leader of
the Crucifers) will be a great sinner in his youth, but like St.
Paul he will be drawn and converted to God. He shall be the founder
of a new religious order different from all the others. He shall
divide it into three classes, namely:
(1) Military knights,
(3) most pious hospitalers.
This shall be the last
religious order of the Church, and it will do more good for our holy
religion than all other religious institutes. By force of arms he
shall take possession of a great kingdom. He shall destroy the sect
of Mahomet, extirpate all tyrants and heresies. He shall bring the
world to a more holy mode of life. There will be one fold and one
Shepherd. He shall reign until the end of time. In the whole earth
there shall be only twelve kings, one emperor, one pope. Rich
gentlemen shall be few, but all saints."
48. Abbe Souffrant ~
Abbe Souffrant, the Cure of Maumusson (d. 1828), left us this
"Before the Grand Monarch, 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 color 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 usurperís 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 favor 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 favor 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 Godís 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."
49. The Mother of Bourg ~
In 1857, the Limoge Mother Josefa of Bourg, who was the founder of
the Congregation of the Sisters of the Savior, recorded this
prophecy concerning the Great Pope and the Grand Monarch:
"The chastisements of God will fall upon us in diverse manners. The
plague, the trouble, the spilled blood. There will be in our France
a frightful reversal! Nevertheless those days will be abrogated in
favor of the just. God will elevate to the throne a model king, a
Christian king. The son of Saint Louis will love religion, goodness,
justice. The Lord will give him the light, the wisdom, and the
power. He has prepared for it long beforehand and it will come to
pass in the crucible of proof and suffering, but he is going to
recall the exiles.
"He, the Lord, will take him by the hand, and at the fixed day he
will be placed on the throne. His destiny is to repair and
regenerate; the consoled religion will flourish again, and all the
people praise the reign of the heaven-sent Prince; but afterwards
the evil will take over and endure more or less until the end of
time. The light of On High has not been given to me for the last
events of the world called the apocalypse."
50. Cheiro ~
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries the British occultist
Louis Hamon, who is best remembered by his professional name
won international fame and honor for his uncanny skill in predicting
future events by means of astrology, cheiromancy (palmistry), and
He was born near Dublin, Ireland in 1866 and was christened William Hohn Warner. He changed his name to
Louis Hamon and assumed the
title of Count and the mystic name Cheiro (from the Greek word for
hand) when he entered into the professional practice of palmistry at
the age of 24. Cheiro made many highly accurate prognostications for
famous people during his successful 46-year career as a palm reader.
In 1900 he was awarded the Order of the Lion and Sun by the Shah of
Persia after the psychic saved the monarchís life by foiling an
assassination attempt during a visit to the Paris Exhibition.
Cheiro correctly predicted more than a dozen significant historical
the death of Lord Horatio Kitchener,
imprisonment of Oscar Wilde,
the career of British Prime Minister
the presidency of Grover Cleveland,
the Chinese Revolution,
the death of Rasputin,
outbreak of the Boer War and World War One,
the Great Depression,
Indiaís independence from Britain,
the partitioning of India and
the return of the Jews to Palestine and the establishment
and Francoís dictatorship of Spain.
Several of Cheiroís prophecies remain to be fulfilled:
dictatorship will control France;
a political union of China and
Japan will control Asia;
London will be destroyed by Soviet
New York City will be destroyed by an earthquake;
Armageddon will occur when Russia, Libya, Ethiopia, and Iran invade
51. Mathias Lang ~
The "forest-prophet" Mathias Lang (also known as Muhlhias and
Stormberger) lived in Bavaria from 1753 to 1820. Lang could not read
or write, so his predictions went far beyond his educational horizon
when he spoke of telephones, electricity, railroads, airplanes, and
the atomic bomb. People mocked Lang during his lifetime, but history
has proven the accuracy of many of his predictions, such as this
one, made before the first World War:
"When the iron road passing through the forest is built and the iron
hound passes the deserted bay, afterwards, when the wagon without
horse and shaft travels and people fly like birds in the sky, and
when the silver fish flies over our forest... then is the war year.
The Kaltenberg-Deggendorf railway, the "iron road" through the
Bavarian forest, was opened on August 1, 1914. The "iron hound" is
less clear, but the "wagon without horse and shaft" is of course the
automobile. The "silver fish" is a fair description of the Zeppelin,
which flew over the Bavarian forest in 1914, just before the war
Mathias Lang also accurately predicted World War Two. He spoke of
our future in these terms:
"After the Great War there will be no peace. The people will rise
and all will fight against each other... The rich and noble will be
killed. The World War will not make people better but much worse...
Tell your children that their children will live to see the time
when the earth will be cleared. God will do away with people because
there will be no charity among men. Religious faith will decline;
priests will not be respected; people will be intent only on eating
and drinking; there will be many immensely rich people and large
amounts of paupers; great wealth will not endure long, for the red
caps will come. People will hide in forests and many will go into
exile. After this civil conflict and general clearing people will
love each other as much as previously they hated one another.
"After World War II, people will think that peace has arrived, but
it will be an interval only. One day a third World War will start,
more awful than the preceding ones.
"When women walk around in pants, and men have become effeminate, so
that one will no longer be able to tell men from women, then the
time is near.
"People will build houses everywhere, high houses, low houses, one
after another. When everyone builds, when everywhere buildings rise,
everything will be cleared away.
"There will be a holy Sign in the heavens, that a very severe Master
will come and take off the Skin of the People. He will not rule very
long, then when all that has happened as I said, then comes the
great Clearing Away.
"The Bavarian land will be devastated, and the land of Bohemia
[Czechoslovakia] will be cleaned out as by a broom. Over all these
places and over the Bohemian mountains will come the Reds... not the
French, but the Reds.
"It will happen overnight. While many people sit together in a guest
house, outside the soldiers will draw near over the bridge. The
mountain will be black with its people, and all will flee, each man
will run through the forest. He who has two loafs of bread and loses
somebody, he should let them lie and move on, so that he will come
through with one loaf.
"However, when you see the horror of the devastation, of which the
Prophet Daniel has spoken, then flee as in Judea, to the mountain,
and who is on the road, and who is in the field, do not turn around
to fetch your garment.
"The people who hide in Falkenstein will be spared.
"The People will be sick and nobody can help them. Those who will
make it must have an iron head. Those that have hidden during the
great Clearing Away will say to every strange Person, "Brother,
where have you stayed hidden --- Sister, where have you hidden
yourself?" Then when people stand on top of the mountain, they will
see no light in the whole forest.
"And when one looks over the Danube and sees a cow, one should hang
a golden bell on her.
"The shepherds will walk around and put sticks in the ground and
say, "This is where Rabenstein was, here where Straubing stood."
"Then afterward a good time will come, that which is "Loved by Jesus
Christ," and holy men will do wonders. Once people have their faith
again, a long period of peace will follow. Those who are still alive
will be given housing and as much land as they need. And the more
hands one has, the more you will count.
"Then there will be a shortened summer; winter and summer will not
be distinguishable. Although everything around the Danube is wasted
and dead, there will be people living in the woods and they will
build houses in the woods --- beautiful houses, in fact, because all
bad things are over and all difficulties have been surpassed. And
soon the nettles will grow out of the old buildings. And the forest
will grow again without war and death."
Another prediction of
World War Three brought much ridicule to Lang
during the 19th century. He said that a road would be built over Pragel Pass between Straubing and Pilnersberg, and on it would march
the invaders, the "red caps." The region Lang spoke of was so wild
and inhospitable at that time that Langís contemporaries could not
imagine anyone living in that area, let along building a road there.
Yet in 1972, construction was begun on a road over Pragel Pass, and
today we can be certain that Lang was referring to Russians as the
"Red" invaders. (3, 5)
52. Mitar Tarabich ~
The Serbian peasant Mitar Tarabich (1829-1899) received numerous
visions throughout his life. The priest Zaharije Zaharich
(1836-1918), who was Tarbichís godfather, recorded them. Tarabich
accurately predicted local Serbian political events, and World Wars
One and Two. The following prophecy concerns Serbia after World War
Two, and the near future:
"After the Great War, peace will reign all over the world. Many new
states will appear... black, white, red and yellow. An international
court is formed, which does not allow countries to fight each other.
This court will be above all kings. Where a war starts, the Court
will judge justly, trying to transform hatred and butchery into love
and peace. The lucky ones who live to see these times will be more
"After a while some great kings, as well as some small ones, will
start to fake their respect for the Court, while doing whatever they
please... Many small wars will begin because of this... Thousands
upon thousands will de, but there will be no big wars.
"There will be a few wars around the Kingdom of Israel, but sooner
or later the peace will come even there.
"In these wars, brothers fight brothers; then they make peace and
kiss each other, but their hatred remains...
"All these small wars are initiated by the great kingdoms because of
their wickedness and malice. Those who fight and butcher each other
do it because of their blind stupidity.
"In our country, the time of peace and prosperity will last for a
long time. Many a generation will be born to live and die in peace,
knowing about war only through wise books, words and different
strange apparitions [television?].
"Our kingdom will be strong and well-loved and respected by
everybody. People will eat only íwhiteí bread, and whole wheat just
when they want to. Everybody will ride around in carts with no oxen.
People will travel in the sky, looking down upon our land as if
they had climbed on the doubled Tara mountain.
"Down in Uzice, and all around these mountains, many factories will
be built, and people will leave the land and come to work in them.
For a long time they will love it, but then they will remember their
land and go back to it.
"Serbia will prosper best while the man with blue eyes on a white
horse governs --- one who will come to Serbia, bringing some kind of
new religion. He will.. lose his leg. From this wound he will die,
not because of his great age. [Tito, who died in 1981 after the
amputation of his leg]
"After him, our land will be governed by some kind of commission,
but it will never be as it was.
"Even though the people in our kingdom will forget about misery and
hunger and will live in great wealth, brother will start to hate and
think evil of brother.
"On our borders and over them, a new nation will appear. They will
grow like grass after a deluge; they will be good and honest, and
they will answer our hatred with reason. They will take care of each
other like brothers. And we, because of our madness, shall think
that we know everything and that we can do anything, and we shall
baptize them with some new fate of ours, but all that will be in
vain --- because they will believe only in themselves and in nobody
else. Big trouble will become of it, because this nation will be
brave. [The Bosnian war of the 1990s]
"Many summers this trouble will last, and nobody will be able to
stop it because that nation will grow like grass. One who will be
born many summers after you [Zaharic] will be honest and
intelligent; he will deal with them in peace.
"We shall live in peace --- they there, us here and there.
"You see, my godfather, when the world starts to live in peace and
abundance after the Second Big War, all of that will be just a
bitter illusion, because many will forget God and they will worship
only their own human intelligence...
"Men will build a box and within will be some kind of gadget with
images, but they will not be able to communicate with me already
dead, even though this image-gadget will be as close to this other
world as hairs on the human scalp are close to each other. With the
help of this gadget, man will be able to see everything that is
happening all over the world.
"People will drill wells deep in the ground and dig out gold ["black
gold", oil] which will give them light, speed and power, and the
Earth will shed tears of sorrow because there is much more gold and
light on its surface than in its interior. The Earth will suffer
because of these open wounds.
"Instead of working in the fields, people will dig everywhere, in
right and wrong places, but the real power will be all around them,
not being able to tell them, íCome on, take me, donít you see that I
am here, all around you?í Only after many a summer, people will
remember this real power,, and then they will realise how stupid it
was to dig all those holes. This power will also be present in
people but it will take a long time before they discover it and use
"Thus man will live for a long, long time, not being able to know
himself. There will be many learned men who will think through their
books that they can know and do everything. They will be the great
obstacle for this [self-] realization, but once people get this
knowledge then people will see what kind of delusion it was when
they listened to their learned men. When that happens, people will
be so sorry that they didnít discover it before, because this
knowledge is so simple.
"People will do many stupid things, thinking that they know and can
do everything, not knowing anything.
"Wise men will appear in the Orient and their wisdom will cross all
seas and frontiers but people will not trust this wisdom for a long
time, and this real truth they will proclaim for a lie.
"Their souls will not be possessed by the Devil, but by something
much worse. They will believe that their delusion is the real truth,
although there will be no truth in their heads.
"Here at home it will be the same as all over the world. People will
start to hate clean air and this divine freshness and all divine
beauty and will hide in rankness. Nobody will force them to do that,
but they will do it of their own free will.
"Here in Kremna, many a field will become a meadow and many a home
will be abandoned, but then those who have left will come back to
heal themselves by breathing fresh air.
"In Serbia it will not be possible to distinguish a man from a
woman. Everybody will dress the same. This calamity will come to us
from abroad but it will stay with us the longest. A groom will take
a bride, but nobody will know who is who.
"People will be lost and more and more senseless day by day. Men
will be born not knowing who was their grandfather and
great-grandfather. People will think that they know everything, but
not a thing will they know.
"The Serbs will separate from each other, and they will say,
not a Serb, I am not a Serb.í The unholy one will infiltrate this
nation and bed with Serbian sisters, mothers and wives. He will sire
such children that among the Serbs, since the beginning of the
world, these will be the worst of offspring. Only weaklings will be
born, and nobody will be strong enough to give birth to a real hero.
"At one time we shall disappear from this land of ours. We shall go
to the north, and then realizing our stupid deed we shall return.
When we come back, we shall wise up and chase away the unholy one,
not to see him, in Godís name, ever again.
"The whole world will be plagued by a strange disease, and nobody
will be able to find a cure. Everybody will say, íI know, I know,
because I am learned and smartí, but nobody will know anything.
People will think and think, but they will not be able to find the
right cure, which will be with Godís help, all around them and in
"Men will travel to other worlds to find lifeless deserts there, and
still, God forgive him, he will think that he knows better than God
himself. There, except the eternal peace of God, he will see
nothing, but he will sense with his heart and soul all of Godís
beauty and power. People will drive in rigs upon the Moon and stars.
They will look for life, but life similar to ours they will not
find. It will be there, but they will not be able to understand it
and see that it is life...
"The more people will know, the less they will love and care for
each other. Hatred will be so great between them that they will care
more for their different gadgets than for their relatives. Man will
trust his gadget more than his first neighbor...
"Among people of a nation far in the north, a little man will appear
who will teach men about love and compassion, but there will be many
Judases and hypocrites around him so that he will have many ups and
downs. Not one of these hypocrites will want to know what is real
human grace, but his wise books will remain, and all the words he
will say, and then people will see how self-deceived they were.
"Those who will read and write different books with numbers will
think that they know the most. These learned men will let their
lives be led by their calculations, and they will do and live
exactly how these numbers tell them. Among these learned men there
will be good and evil men. The evil ones will do evil deeds. They
will poison air and water and spread pestilence over the seas,
rivers and earth, and people will start to die suddenly of various
ailments. Those good and wise will see that all this effort and hard
work is not worth a penny and that it leads to the destruction of
the world; and instead of looking for wisdom in numbers, they will
start to seek it in meditation.
"When they start to meditate more, they will be closer to Godís
wisdom, but it will be too late because the evil ones will already
ravage the whole Earth, and men will start to die in great numbers.
Then people will run away from the cities to the country and look
for the mountains with three crosses, and there, inside, they will
be able to breathe and drink water. Those who escape will save
themselves and their families, but not for long because a great
famine will appear. There will be plenty of food in towns and
villages, but it will be poisoned. Many will eat because of hunger
and die immediately. Those who will fast to the end will survive
because the Holy Ghost will save them and they will be close to
"The greatest and the angriest will strike against the mightiest and
the most furious! When When this horrible war starts, woe to those
armies armies that fly over skies; better off will be those who
fight on ground and water.
"People waging this war will have their scientists who will invent
different and strange cannon-balls. When they explode, these
cannon-balls, instead of killing, will cast a spell over all that
lives --- people, armies and livestock. This spell will put them to
sleep, and sleep they will instead of fight; and after, they will
come back to their senses.
"We will not fight in this war, but others will do battle over our
heads. Burning people will fall from the sky over Pozega.
"Only one country at the end of the world, surrounded by a great
sea, as big as our Europe, will live in peace, without any
troubles... Upon it or over it, not a single cannon-ball will
explode! [Probably Australia]
"Those who will run and hide in the mountains with three crosses
will find shelter and will be saved, to live after in abundance,
happiness and love, because there will be no more wars..."
