1968 Prophecy by a 90 Year Old Norwegian Woman (for discernment only)
Various ^ | November 2010 - Present

Posted on 08/08/2011 12:13:34 PM PDT by NYer

This prophecy was given by a 90 yr. old woman in Norway 42 years ago about events leading up to the second coming of Christ. An Evangelist by the name of Emanuel Minos wrote this prophecy down in 1968 and thought it was so extreme that he put it away. He recently reviewed the prophecy and was amazed that it is not "extreme" anymore--but the norm in our society. Read the prophecy below.


An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos had meetings (services) where she lived. He had the opportunity to meet her, and she told him what she had seen. He wrote it down, but thought it to be so unintelligible that he put it in a drawer. Now, almost 30 years later, he understands he has to share the vision with others.

The woman from Valdres was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation among all who knew her. This is what she saw:

"I saw the time just before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the events with my natural eyes. I saw the world like a kind of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take place just before the return of Jesus, and just before the last calamity happens, a calamity the likes of which we have never before experienced.

She mentioned four waves:

1. "First before Jesus comes and before the Third World War breaks out there will be a ‘détente’ like we have never had before. There will be peace between the super powers in the east and the west, and there will be a long peace. (Remember, that this was in 1968 when the cold war was at its highest. E. Minos) In this period of peace there will be disarmament in many countries, also in Norway and we are not prepared when it (the war) comes. The Third World War will begin in a way no one would have anticipated - and from an unexpected place.

2. "A lukewarmness without parallel will take hold of the Christians, a falling away from true, living Christianity. Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching. They will not, like in earlier times, want to hear of sin and grace, law and gospel, repentance and restoration. There will come a substitute instead: prosperity (happiness) Christianity.

"The important thing will be to have success, to be something; to have material things, things that God never promised us in this way. Churches and prayer houses will be emptier and emptier. Instead of the preaching we have been used to for generations -like, to take your cross up and follow Jesus, - entertainment, art and culture will invade the churches where there should have been gatherings for repentance and revival. This will increase markedly just before the return of Jesus.

3. "There will be a moral disintegration that old Norway has never experienced the likes of. People will live together like married without being married. (I do not believe the concept ‘co-habitor’? existed in 1968 - E. Minos.) Much uncleanness before marriage, and much infidelity in marriage will become the natural (the common), and it will be justified from every angle. It will even enter Christian circles and we pet it - even sin against nature. Just before Jesus return there will be TV- programs like we have never experienced. (TV had just arrived in Norway in 1968. E. Minos)

"TV will be filled with such horrible violence that it teaches people to murder and destroy each other, and it will be unsafe in our streets. People will copy what they see. There will not be only one ‘station’ on TV, it will be filled with ‘stations.’ (She did not know the word ‘channel’ which we use today. Therefore she called them stations. E. Minos.) TV will be just like the radio where we have many ‘stations,’ and it will be filled with violence. People will use it for entertainment. We will see terrible scenes of murder and destruction one of the other, and this will spread in society. Sex scenes will also be shown on the screen, the most intimate things that takes place in a marriage." (I protested and said, we have a paragraph that forbids this kind of thing. E. Minos.) There the old woman said: "It will happen, and you will see it. All we have had before will be broken down, and the most indecent things will pass before our eyes."

4. "People from poor countries will stream to Europe. (In 1968 there was no such thing as immigration. E. Minos.) They will also come to Scandinavia - and Norway. There will be so many of them that people will begin to dislike them and become hard with them. They will be treated like the Jews before the Second World War. Then the full measure of our sins will have been reached (I protested at the issue of immigration. I did not understand it at the time. E. Minos.)

The tears streamed from the old woman’s eyes down her cheeks. "I will not see it, but you will. Then suddenly, Jesus will come and the Third World War breaks out. It will be a short war." (She saw it in the vision.)

"All that I have seen of war before is only child’s play compared to this one, and it will be ended with a nuclear atom bomb. The air will be so polluted that one cannot draw one’s breath. It will cover several continents, America, Japan, Australia and the wealthy nations. The water will be ruined (contaminated?). We can no longer till the soil. The result will be that only a remnant will remain. The remnant in the wealthy countries will try to flee to the poor countries, but they will be as hard on us as we were on them.

"I am so glad that I will not see it, but when the time draws near, you must take courage and tell this. I have received it from God, and nothing of it goes against what the Bible tells.

"The one who has his sin forgiven and has Jesus as Savior and Lord, is safe."

WHEN THE OIL FLOWS

An elder in the Pentecostal Church at Moss, Norway, Martin Andersen, heard the following prophecy in 1937, in Moss:

‘When oil comes out of the North Sea and along the Norwegian coast, things will begin to happen, and the return of Jesus is approaching.’

When these words had been proclaimed, people stood up in the congregation and asked the man to sit down and not speak such nonsense. In 1937 it was indeed nonsense to talk about oil being pumped along the Norwegian coast. Today all the world’s big oil companies are pumping oil along the coast of Norway. Norway is the world’s second greatest exporter of oil - after Saudi Arabia.

The sum of it all is: Jesus is coming soon (suddenly).

NOTE

One often doubts prophecies; hence the "discernment" notice. This prophecy is circulating around the internet. A poster on a different blog forum, seriously questioned the veracity of the prophecy and did some research. Here is their post:

WHEN THE OIL FLOWS

An elder in the Pentecostal Church at Moss, Norway, Martin Andersen,heard the following prophecy in 1937, in Moss:

‘When oil comes out of the North Sea and along the Norwegian coast,things will begin to happen, and the return of Jesus is approaching.’

When these words had been proclaimed, people stood up in the
congregation and asked the man to sit down and not speak suchnonsense. In 1937 it was indeed nonsense to talk about oil beingpumped along the Norwegian coast. Today all the world’s big oil companies are pumping oil along the coast of Norway. Norway is the world’s second greatest exporter of oil - after Saudi Arabia.

The sum of it all is: Jesus is coming soon (suddenly).

Original source editor’s note: The above account was originally transmitted from Israel to friends in the US. It was sent by a Norwegian Christian worker by the name of Ragna Von Porat.

Ragna states in a footnote that it was translated from Danish. She further states that Emanuel Minos, the evangelist mentioned in the account,was her friend’s closest neighbor in Oslo. She says, "I heard him in
my young days. My parents knew him."

Because of my fear of transmitting false prophecy, I have diligentlyinquired concerning the information in this letter. Publication has been delayed until permission could be secured from Ragna in Israel.

In my contact with her, she has assured me that these accounts are true and reliable. In fact, she relates that the first account has already been published in one of Norway’s Christian newspapers.

I have found in my own research that the first account was also published by the Christian Information Service in Germany.

The website
of Dr. Emanuel Minos is active today and can be accessed for
verification. Although the language on this site is Norwegian, the very similar story of the woman and her vision is posted there in English. The above accounts are transmitted just as they werereceived.

Ragna took it upon herself to verify as much of the above informationas she could. In contacting the Embassy of Norway she learned that Norway has now dropped to the world’s third largest oil exporter.

Ragna states, "I certainly have no objection to your going ahead [withpublishing]. It must be now-if ever."

Late 1960s and early 1970s End-Times prophecy books flooded the bible book store shelves. Hal Lindsey's book, The Late Great Planet Earth, being the most notable and most of us young Evangelical Christians owned a copy.

Whether these writers were on to something or not, you would have to have your head stuck in the sand not to see that something has been set in motion over the last ten years or so.

most thought-provoking. thanks for posting this.
certainly this could have been created recently,
and backdated to 1968.
but i find the details like the phrasing “live together”, etc., sounds believable.

if it really was written in 1968, then the “many stations”,
people coming from “poor countries”, etc. is interesting.
and the many mega-churches preaching about praying for wealth and financial gain:

“Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching. They will not, like in earlier times, want to hear of sin and grace, law and gospel, repentance and restoration. There will come a substitute instead: prosperity (happiness) Christianity.”

true or not, i hope people will read it, and ready extra oil for their lamp...

Prophecy often has multiple interpretations, and its validity is generally related to the prophet or purported prophet’s spiritual purity. She may have received from God a vision which was true, and overlaid it with her own fears and flaws. This case is also illustrating why prophets tend to be despised at the time of their prophecies - it’s not easy to understand what’s seen when what doesn’t exist yet is only imperfectly related to what does exist at the time and is in general understanding of the time.

Certainly prayer now would be helpful.

Also, for those interested, have a look online for Siener van Rensburg. The first word is a title, ‘Seer’, not his name. He was a South African, Afrikaner and Boer, who learned to read from the Bible (taught at home). And that is supposed to have been the only book he ever read. He didn’t at the time - the Boer War - have great reasons to be optimistic about the future of his people, and of the developed world in general, but the resolution in his prophecy was more optimistic, if I recall correctly.

It smells fishy. It reads like someone sat down and wrote a short summary of the spiritual history of the last 40-50 years and presented it as prophecy. I wonder if there is any documentation that proves the prophecy was actually given in 1968. I mean documentary evidence.

That doesn't sound like the end of the world, but maybe that's just me.

Maybe because the state of mind at the time. I predicted 9/11 in early 1998. I was off my meds (sigh) and for about a two week period of time I was writing down every weird thing that was coming to my mind. I folded the papers up a page or two at a time and sealed them in envelopes. Then I tossed them in a box.

All I had wanted to do was save them until a later date, because I assumed I would eventually get better, and then I could read them again and could put myself back in that place or frame of mind.

About six months later, I decided to open the envelopes and see what I had written down. A lot of gibberish, I guess you could say and a lot of stuff that absolutely doesn’t make any sense about anything. By the time I had opened all the envelopes, I must have had about 70 to 80 pages of material. I took the pages, put them in a ziplock bag and then into an old empty suitcase. Out of sight. Out of mind. To this day I am the only person who read any of the papers.

After 9/11 happened, over 3 years later, I went and reread the papers, because I thought I remembered I had something about that written in them.

To my surprise I saw I had drawn two squares with X’s through them with “WTC” written underneath that. Anyway, there were about 6 or 7 lines that I remember could be construed to refer to the tragedy. I wrote “clear the floor” and “new weapon” but I don’t remember the rest off the top of my head. Just saying.

I later ran across an unopened envelope that hadn’t been with the rest that I had saved but opened. It remains unopened to this day and I couldn’t put my hands on it right now without some extensive searching.

Curiosity kills the cat and all that.

Last pope? You reference Malachy's work which states:

The 112th prophesy states: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End." The last pope may just cut Catholics loose from unity and the papacy, causing total disruption and confusion.

You then post a photo of Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson of Ghana, accompanied by a link to a DailyMail article from 2009.

I am confused. Perhaps you can clarify what it is that you are trying to say. Are you aware that the Catholic Church has had 3 black popes?

“Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching. They will not, like in earlier times, want to hear of sin and grace, law and gospel, repentance and restoration. There will come a substitute instead: prosperity (happiness) Christianity.”

This is a dead on description of the post-modern, emergent, seeker-sensitive, purpose driven churches that are dominating the evangelical community with false teachers like Rick Warren and Joel Osteen with his Word of Faith heresy.

I truly am getting in my Spirit a sign that alot is going to happen within the next immediate or several months or till Obama's term of time would be over. I only had one national dream vision. I believe our Lord wants me to write this for others.

This happen on New Year's Eve Day night going into 2009 year from 2008 year. The end of this dream was Obama in a field with a handful of secret service standing next to the presidential limo. It was green grass field. The grass was well cut not long with trees behind him. It is an open field. He looks up then meets my eyes at me then I look up and the sky is filled with an invading army parachuting above us coming to the ground. The army is in green army camouflage not desert camouflage. They all looked light skin not dark. But before they landed I woke up. This happen after the the lights went out at about a 8:00est. So I put lighted candles up. I stayed up till 1040 then went to bed. The electric lights never came back on till later. This is right before Obama was sworn in as president in the new January. So I went to bed early with the candle burning in my bedroom. When the dream ended. It was so profound I woke up right away to candle light. Then suddenly the power came back on with the lights like to accent this was an important dream. Just uncanny! Everything up to the field show the former america is gone in industrial might. I was in a old rusted model T watching the parade for Obama then turning into fighting among the paraders. Hitting each other with the Obama signs.

I know this might sound crazy! I could not really see the faces clearly but I woke up before real clearity came into view. Not that this is in the dream but a reason for what I thought I believe because Obama is viewed as weak by the world. I think China and Russia will knock America out of the world power business. They are doing joint operations together all the time. If we are out of the way they can divide the world to there own end. Also the Chinese have so many people they are so arrogant from what I read they hate there population. I know I sound movie ish but I know my personal ( about friends or family)visions came true. One to the exact broadcast of a drive by shooting several months before it happen. Same channel 12 in long island NY. Same town reported. Same female broadcaster. Same person(a friend's daughter as the victim). How can that not be God if comes exactly true. All these dreams are after a Divine Mercy Chaplet Prayer. That was heavy prayer for her soul.

I feel I have to remind people. So when this happened of all nights for a New Year’s eve night(2008/2009) before a new president getting in office. Then accented when I woke up. Too much of a coincide .

Sorry, the video at the link goes into more detail.

I'll try to summarize the prophecy and my thoughts on who the final Pope could be.

Saint Malachy, was the 12th‑century bishop of Armagh in Ireland, (now part of Northern Ireland). According to the traditional account, in 1139, Malachy was summoned to Rome by Pope Innocent II. While in Rome, Malachy purportedly experienced a vision of future popes, which he recorded as a sequence of cryptic phrases. This manuscript was then deposited in the Roman Archive, and thereafter forgotten about until its rediscovery in 1590.

The interpretation of these cryptic phrases (mottos) has generally relied on finding correspondences between the mottos and the popes' birthplaces, their personal arms, and the events of their pontificates. For example, the first motto, Ex castro Tiberis (From a castle on the Tiber), fits Pope Celestine II's birthplace in Città di Castello, on the Tiber.

The final motto is: Peter the Roman

Who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the fearsome Judge will judge His people. The End.

My thoughts on why Cardinal Turkson is a good candidate: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2490481/posts?page=15#15

Thank you for the clarification and your suggested final pope based on Malachy's purported prophesy.

In one of your earlier links, however, it clearly states:

The problem with the prophecies as listed in The Prophecies of St. Malachy, published by the Thomas A. Nelson, a Catholic Publishing House, is that Malachy's original works listed only 111 Popes, not 112, as given in the TAN version of the prophecies. Sometime between the first and subsequent printings the 112th, Petrus Romanus, was added to Malachy's prophecy. It was added after the 1820 publication of the prophecies.

That additional bit of information tends to squelch your papabile nomination, does it not?

The one assurance we Catholics have is the promise made by our Lord to St. Peter: "And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age", is fulfilled again (Matthew 28:20).

Yes, there is some controversy concerning the last prophecy of St. Malachy. I lean toward the prophecy of the 112th being valid. If it's not then the current Pope is the last one he assigned a motto to.

Food for though... :)

“I wonder if there is any documentation that proves the prophecy was actually given in 1968.”

My thought also. Any one of us could write down events from the past few decades and then build a tale around it.

A bit more:

"The prophecy was first published in 1595 by Arnold de Wyon, a Benedictine historian, as part of his book "Lignum Vitæ" (Tree of Life). However, in the 1820 printed version of Malachy's prophesies, Lignum Vitæ , a 112th pope appears that was not in Malachy's original manuscript. The 112th pope was added by the Olivetan monks. The Order of St. Benedict claims this final pope will come within the Benedictine Order, and that he was placed in the secession line because St. Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world, his Order will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its battle against evil (the Battle of Armageddon)."

One could spend a good number of rainy days researching.

Instead of the preaching we have been used to for generations -like, to take your cross up and follow Jesus, - entertainment, art and culture will invade the churches where there should have been gatherings for repentance and revival.

I was cautioned about this when I asked about finding a church before I moved to NC.

I was told to look for a church where the music only came from the voices of those in the church and not from musical instruments or recordings.

Most of the those I ask about why they attend their church first say for the music and second for the sermon.

Not having been raised in a faith, it can be confusing...

Thanks for the ping. A lot of this prediction is plausible and not likely to have been anticipated in 1968.

Peter the Roman was not part of Malachy’s original writing and account. He stopped at 111 which is the current Pope. 112 or Peter the Roman was added by someone to the second printing but was no part of the first and original account of Malachy.

Don’t know about you but I think post 28 is discombobulated.

True......there is a great falling away today. Churches are caught up in doctrines, traditions, commandments of men and Titus 1:14 — Jewish fables...The Word has been corrupted in the churches...some say the modern day churches are the false prophet spoken of in Revelation.

It sounds like a modern writing pretending to be an older prediction. Too much of this “prophesy” borders on sorcery.

Yeah, I’m skeptical. For instance:
“People will live together like married without being married. (I do not believe the concept ‘co-habitor’? existed in 1968 - E. Minos.)”

It absolutely did. I remember as a kid, knowing of people living together without being married. And, that was in the U.S. I find it hard to believe that the Norwegians were more parochial than we were. Could be, I just doubt it.

People have been shacking up forever.

From #39 above:

"The Order of St. Benedict claims this final pope will come within the Benedictine Order, and that he [Pope 112] was placed in the secession line because St. Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world, his Order will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its battle against evil (the Battle of Armageddon)."

So what Order does the current Pope [Pope 111] belong to???

Curiouser and curiouser, as someone mentioned. It's also at risk of self fulfillment but another piece of the puzzle.

No more so, imho, than is common to dreams.
