An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision she claimed was from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos had meetings (or services) where she lived. He had the opportunity to meet her, and she told him what she had seen. He then wrote it down, but thought it to be so unbelievable at the time that he put it in a drawer. After 30 years, he understood he had to share the vision with others.
Regardless of what you might think of prophetic statements, dreams claiming origination from God, or visions given the same source, the words that this old woman spoke is well worth your time to read. In fact, I would suggest taking time to thinking through all she said very carefully. I have a lot of natural resistance to the many outlandish things that people say God gave them via dreams or visions, because the majority came from really bad pizza the night before. but this is not one that I find myself able to ignore or easily set aside. I have decided to insert it right into the middle of the series I am in the process of writing. I hope you find it worth your time to go through as well. The content of this message from the LORD has been confirmed many times by quite a number of genuine Christ-followers, by being told the same kind of things. Here is what this older lady said clear back in 1968 (which happens to only one year before I graduated from college as well as following God’s call to spend the next eight years in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. I can confirm that the things said by this 90 year old saint of God did come to pass, just as God told her they would. Here are the details surrounding this event and the words recorded:
This woman, in spite of her great age was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation amongst 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 globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take placed 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 ‘detente’ 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 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 seen 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 repentancve 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 beli3eve the concept ‘co-habitor’ existed in 1968 – E. Minos.) Much uncleanness before marriage, and much infidelity in mariage 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 returns 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 wil 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 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 that takes place in a marriage.” I protested and said, we have a paragra-ph 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.”
“People from poor countries will stream to Europe. (In 1968 there was no such thing as immigration, especially in Norway. -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 be3en 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 third greatest exporter of oil – after Saudi Arabia. Original source editor’s note: Because of my fear of transmitting false prophecy, I have diligently inquired concerning the information in this letter. Publication has been delayed until permission could be secured from Ragna (Von Porat) 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 were received. Ragna took it upon herself to verify as much of the above information as she could…Ragna states, “I certainly have no objection to your going ahead (with publishing). It must be now — if ever.” I do hope that this post will leave a lasting impression. It is serious, accurate, and to the point. Take it to heart, apply the things that God is saying to us. Prepare yourselves, as I am, to meet the KING of Kings and LORD of Lords. Do Keep looking Up!!
