Prophecies from the past

In 1889, British missionary Hudson Taylor was on furlough in England. As he was preaching, he suddenly stopped and stood speechless, his eyes closed. When he began to speak again, he explained:"I have seen a vision. I saw in this vision a great war that encompasses the world. I saw this war recess and then start again, actually being two wars. After this I saw much unrest and revolts that will affect many nations. I saw in some places spiritual awakenings. In Russia I saw there will come a general all-encompassing, national spiritual awakening, so great that there could never be another like it. From Russia, I saw the awakening spread to many European countries. Then I saw an all-out awakening, followed by the second coming of Christ."

In the turbulent years preceding the 1917 revolution in Russia, when Europe was to pour out the abomination of communism on the land, a young aristocratic woman (later to become Mother Barbara, Abbess of the Russian Church of St Mary Magdalen on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem), used to visit a ‘holy’ man or ‘staretz’ in the Kremlin, Bishop Aristocoli. He prophesied many things about the End Times in Europe – and in Russia.The Bishop foretold that Europe would be laid waste and Germany divided in two – France would be as nothing, America would feed the world but would finally collapse - that England would lose her Empire and colonies, and be on the verge of collapse, but be saved in the last hours through praying women.About Russia, Bishop Aristocoli said, “An evil will shortly take Russia [the 1917 Communist Revolution] and wherever this evil comes rivers of blood will flow. It is not of the Russian soul, but an imposition on the Russian soul. It is a spirit from hell. But finally Russia will be free and from out of Russia believers will go forth and turn many nations to God.”
