The world torn in two

All at once I see a glaring light and I feel a pain arising in my hand––it is just like a beam of rays. I see the Lady and she says,

“Disasters will take place from north to south and from south to west and from west to east.”

Now I see a round dome. I am given to understand: that is a dome of Jerusalem. I hear now,

“In and around Jerusalem heavy battles will be waged.”

All at once I see Cairo clearly, and I get a strange feeling about it. Then I see various Eastern peoples: Persians, Arabs and so on. The Lady says,

“The world is, so to speak, going to be torn in two.”

Now I see the world lying before me and in it a great crack appearing, a break winding right over the world. Heavy clouds are hanging over it, and I feel great sorrow and misery. I hear the Lady say,

“Great sorrow and misery will come.”

Then I see Eastern places with white-roofed houses.

The Cross

I feel something heavy in my hand. While looking there, a Cross appears in it. I have to stand it upright on the ground. The Cross is heavy and sways in all directions, continuously to and fro, from the left to the right, backward and forward. For a moment it looks as though it would fall forward, but then it straightens up. It seems to be lighter now and standing firmly in the earth. I now have to look at the ground and I see bones and helmets lying under the Cross. Then I receive a large key in my hand. I have to drop it immediately. It falls in-between the bones and helmets. Then I see lines of young men passing by me; they are soldiers. I hear that voice say,

“Stand by our boys with spiritual aid.”

Then I see white graves arise, lots of small white crosses.

Then I feel a pain in my hand and I see America and Europe lying side by side. After this I see written: ‘Economic warfare, Boycotting, Currencies, Disasters’.

The sundial is reversed

Then I see several figures whirling through one another very quickly. The first things I can make out are torches, which are casting their light in three directions: to the west, north and east. Then I see blue and white stripes intermingling, and then stars––it just looks like flags. After that I see the sickle and hammer, but the hammer breaks away from the sickle, and now all those things are whirling through one another. Then I see a half-moon and a sun; these flags, too, commingle with the rest. Finally a sort of springbuck appears with big horns pointed backwards. It looks to me like an African springbuck. That buck takes enormous jumps over all of this. While all these things are whirling through one another, a circle appears to the left, and through this the globe is turning. After that I suddenly see a large sundial. I hear the Lady say,

“The sundial is reversed.”

Hellish inventions

Then I see a very peculiar scene. I have to look at the sky, and something seems to be launched into it. There is something flying past me so rapidly that I can hardly see it. It is shaped like a cigar or a torpedo, and its colour is like that of aluminum.

All of a sudden I see something shooting off from the back. I feel about with my hand, and different terrible sensations come over me. At first a total numbness. I live and yet I do not live. Then I see horrible images of people before me. I see faces, wide faces, covered with dreadful ulcers, something like leprosy. Then I feel terrible deadly diseases: cholera, leprosy––everything those people have to suffer.

Then that is gone again, and I see tiny little black things floating about me. I try to feel what it is, but that is not possible. It seems to be very fine matter. With my eyes I cannot discern what it is. It is as if I would have to look through something, and below I now see brilliant white fields. Upon those fields I see those little black things, but enlarged, and it is as if they are alive. I don’t know how to describe this properly. I ask the Lady, “Are these bacilli?” She answers very seriously,

“It is hellish.”

Then I feel my face and my whole body swelling. It feels like my face gets very bloated, and everything is stiff and swollen. I cannot move. I hear the Lady say,

“And that is what they are inventing,”

and then very softly,

“that Russian, but the others as well.”

After this the Lady says emphatically,

“Peoples, be warned!”

And then the Lady goes away.
