In the mid 1970′s I read a book called Battle for Israel by Lance Lambert from the UK. In it, he describes a prophecy. The story behind this prophecy is that a bishop of the Russian Orthodox church, Bishop Aristocoli, handed it to Mother Barbara shortly before she moved to Israel in 1911. It’s a political prophecy, and, with the benefit of hindsight, especially considering when it was written, absolutely remarkable for its accuracy. (You can find the prophecy in several places on the Internet.) When I first read it, only some of it had been fulfilled and over the decades I’ve often thought of it as I’ve watched world events unfold.
Here’s what the prophecy says:
“Not one country will be without trial – do not be frightened by anything you will hear. An evil will shortly take Russia and wherever this evil comes, rivers of blood will flaw. This evil will take the whole world and wherever it goes, rivers of blood will flow because of it.
It is not the Russian soul, but an imposition on the Russian soul. !t is not an ideology, or a philosophy, but a spirit from hell.
In the last days Germany will be divided in two. France will just be nothing. Italy will be judged by natural disasters. Britain will lose her empire and all her colonies and will come to almost total ruin, but will be saved by praying women.
America will feed the world, but will finally collapse. Russia and China will destroy each other. Finally, Russia will be free, and from her believers will go forth and turn many from the nations to God.”
In 1911, who could have imagined the impact of Russian Communism? Or that Britain would lose her empire? (I believe Britain was saved by praying women–Britain was at the brink of financial and political ruin when Lydia prayer groups began, and Margaret Thatcher was a woman who prayed.) Who could have imagined that Germany would be divided in two? What are we seeing in America?
However, this is not the total prophecy. It was prefaced by some words concerning women:
“Tell the women they must belong absolutely to God. They must believe in the great things that are happening and that God is doing on the earth. They must prepare their souls, their children and their husbands. And they will have very much work to do for God. Oh, what a great work the women will have to do in the end time, and the men will follow them.”
Makes one think…
What implications do you think it has for today?
