Fascinating and accurate prophetic word given by the Lord to this humble woman who simply loved the Lord, but knew would not live to see the prophetic word be fulfilled. May you be challenged and blessed as you read the article.
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/unbelievable that he put it in a drawer. After the revival meetings closed down, Minos returned to his home and shared the vision he had written down with his wife. Both felt that the vision was so far-fetched and difficult to believe that they did not want to publish it. Now 50 years later, he understood he had 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.
In 1993, twenty five years later, Minos was going through old files, when he found some papers that had become yellow with age. To his astonishment, he found the forgotten notes he had written in 1968 when the 90 year old woman shared the vision with him. After reading through the notes, he became terrified since he realized that many of the details had indeed been fulfilled. He remembered that the woman had asked him to warn people because the end times was approaching. Minos also remembered that he had argued with the woman about certain points in the vision and she forcefully had told him the vision was true and that Minos would live to see it fulfilled in his lifetime. After having reviewed his notes and thinking about what the woman had said, he made the decision to publish the vision, including his initial hesitation to publish it in 1968.
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:
"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."
"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 someone; 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 (i.e. to take up your cross and follow Jesus), entertainment, art and culture will invade the churches where there instead should have been gatherings for repentance and revival. This will increase markedly just before the return of Jesus."
"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 be accepted - 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 law that forbids this kind of thing" - E. Minos). 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."
"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 and down her cheeks as she said: “I will not see it, but you will. This will happen shortly before Jesus is coming back and World War III begins."
WORLD WAR III
She then continued to share the vision and said that it will be a very short war. "All that I have seen of war before is only child’s play compared to this one, and it will be ended with nuclear atomic bombs. 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 contaminated. The soil in these places can no longer be used for growing food. The result will be that only small areas will remain that can be used to grow food. The remnant who survived 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, and will refuse to accept the people seeking refuge.
I am so glad that I will not live to see it, but when the time draws near, you (Emanuel Minos) must take courage and travel all around and tell this vision that I have seen to people. 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."
