Mitar Tarabich—Serbian Prophet:
An Update

Many months ago Hatonn suggested that I obtain information on the Prophetic Visions Of Mitar Tarabich. He gave the name of Swami Veeten as a library reference and said Mr. Tarabich’s prophecies were more accurate even than Nostradamus.

It has been a long search, but thanks to the help of many, and especially Gail Irwin, some information about Mr. Tarabich and his prophecies has been gathered. At this point we seem to have exhausted the possibility of finding anything on Swami Veeten. If one of you readers has access to, or happens to come across his work, I will be most interested in hearing from you.

Unexpectedly, a relative of mine was able to obtain a copy of Mr. Tarabich’s prophecies from a bookstore in Germany. It was copied from notes made by the Serbian Orthodox priest to whom Mitar confided his prophecies by the priest’s great-grandson, Dejan Molenkovic, with the help of Dragoljub Golubovich. The name of their book is Kremansko Prorocanstvo (The Prophecy From Kremna). It is written in the Serbian/Croatian language using the Roman letters and was printed in 1982. It is perhaps the most complete information available at this point. However, I do not understand the language. This book is over 200 pages long and contains numerous photos of the priest and his relatives as well as relatives of Tarabich. Due to the language difficulty I could not identify a photo of Mitar Tarabich. Hopefully, someone can help us with the language problem. Gail Irwin’s first find on Mr. Tarabich was by surfing the Internet. The Internet lists of libraries, bookstores and their catalogs were unfruitful.


A Tim Hobbs, website author, provided a short summary of work in progress by Jura Sever, editor of an upcoming book on the prophet’s life and prophecies. Mr. Hobb’s website is (or was) I understand from Gail that the information on Tarabich was not available at this website upon a second attempt to locate it. Fortunately a printout of the material had been obtained the first trip to the site. It was from Tim Hobbs that Gail Irwin obtained Jura Sever’s name and website: Sever Jura 3js49@qlink.queensu.Ca and eventually learned of the availability of the book she and Zoran Vanjaka were writing on Mr. Tarabich. It is available from Vantage Press, 516 West 34th St., NY, NY 10001, and is titled The Balkan Prophecy (price $9.95 + S&H). It is a small paperback book with 89 pages. From the bibliography I see that they made use of the priest’s great-grandson, Dejan Malenkovic’s work, Kremansko Prorocanstvo, as well as several other reference works to provide the basis and historical support for the accuracy of Mr. Tarabich’s prophecies.

Mr. Tarabich (1829-1899) was an illiterate peasant and therefore did not write down his prophecies but told them to his godfather and priest, Zaharije Zaharich (1836-1918). The priest wrote down the visions and prophecies. Unfortunately some of them were lost due to a fire. It is possible that the Serbian government has a secret file on the prophecies, which they kept from the public. Mr. Tarabich’s prophecies were so accurate the government didn’t want the people to know about them. They interviewed Mr. Tarabich at length and kept a record of the inter view. Therefore it is possible that additional information could come forth at a future date.


The reason the government was so concerned is that Tarabich’s visions were primarily about the future of Yugoslavia from before the time of World War I, the rise and fall of ruling dynasties and how some were murdered or fled, the various wars among the people and the changes in relationships with Turkey or the Ottoman Empire, the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, the Nazis, and Communism. He predicted the rule of Tito, his death and the government that followed—all accurate except the way Tito died. Tarabich said Tito’s death would be caused from a fall from his horse. Sever and Vanjaka state that death was caused by exacerbated diabetes. (One wonders if it could have been a combination of both causes.)


In any event, the extended period covered by Tarabich’s prophecies and the astounding way they have proved so accurate for the people of the Balkans make his prophecies for our time of critical interest and concern today. Tarabich appears to have been a loving, humble man, faithful to his beliefs, his country and family, although he greatly lamented the various wars between his people. He considered himself a Yugoslavian and not a Serbian, although his village of Kremna was in Serbia and he spoke the language. He considered the Croatians, Serbians, Slovenians, etc., all brothers. Even the languages are made up of words familiar to them all. Tarabich speaks against the hatred that rises up between them. He prophesied that after World War II there would be a time of apparent peace and abundance, but then that old hatred would rise again (and so it has).

On a world scale Mr. Tarabich predicts World War III, in which every country would be affected except one country as large as Europe which is surrounded by water (Australia?). He predicted some of the modern inventions, and described some of the modern military missiles. He predicted that people would go underground for protection but that millions of people would die. He states that those who are ground soldiers will fare better than those flying the skies. He sees a lot of dead bodies falling from the sky onto a field near his home. He also predicted a world court, which would be disregarded by some big kings and some small kings, and that there would be numerous small wars prior to the larger WWIII. In the end Archangel Michael would return (he is considered a guardian angel of the Balkans), and there will be a man with red hair, who will rule the world in peace for a thousand years! I have made my comments short so that you can read the greater details and more prophecies in The Balkan Prophecy.

Always remember that prophecies do not have to happen. Man can change things.
