The Future As Seen By Mitar Tarabich
By James Donahue
Among the numerous and somewhat contemporary prophets of note is a Nineteenth Century Serbian peasant named Mitar Tarabich who made some incredibly accurate predictions that included World Wars I and II, the rule of Marshall Tito, and the Serbian upheavals at the end of the Twentieth Century.
Tarabich, who lived from 1829 to 1899, lived in the small Serbian village of Kremna. After having his remarkable visions he told them to a godfather, a local Serbian orthodox priest, Zaharije Zaharich, who wrote everything down in a small notebook.
Without going into great detail, we can report that Tarabich described in graphic detail events that would be affecting his homeland leading up to and during the two great wars and beyond, into contemporary times. Having said this, we find that his predictions that extend into the Twenty First Century are graphic but somewhat difficult to understand. Yet even at this writing, we are starting to see them come to pass. All of the visions were told through the eyes of an illiterate Christian man so there are continual references to God and the foolishness of mankind that forgets its relationship to God. Digging through this problem in the text, however, reveals some startling predictions beginning with contemporary events and looking into the future.
Tarabich said: "when the world starts to live in peace and abundance after the Second Big War, all of that will be just a bitter illusion because many will forget God and they will worship only their own human intelligence. And . . . what is human intelligence compared to God’s will and knowledge?"
He foresaw televisions and computers: "Men will build a box and within will be some kind of gadget with images, but they will not be able to communicate with me already dead, even though this image gadget will be as close to this other world as hairs on the human scalp are close to each other. With the help of this image gadget, man will be able to see everything that is happening all over the world."
Tarabich talked of crude oil and of another power source that humans seem to be overlooking as of yet. He said: "people will drill wells deep in the ground and dig out gold, which will give them light, speed and power, and the Earth will shed tears of sorrow because there will be much more gold and light on its surface than in its interior. The Earth will suffer because of these open wounds. Instead of working in the fields, people will dig everywhere, in right and wrong places, but the real power will be all around them."
Tarabich said: "This power will also be present in people, but it will take a long time before they discover it and use it. Thus man will live for a long, long time, not being able to know himself."
Tarabich said that it will be the learned and so-called wise men of the world who, through their books and fame, "will be the great obstacle for this realization (of self-knowledge). But once men get this knowledge then people will see what kind of delusion it was when they listened to their learned men. When that happens, people will be so sorry that they didn’t discover it before, because this knowledge is so simple." The great Twentieth Century inventor Nikolai Tesla said something very similar. But Tesla was stopped by big business interests from ever getting the device constructed that he believed would provide free power to everyone.
Some of the predictions are obscure. Tarabich said: "People will do many stupid things, thinking that they know and can do everything, not knowing anything. Wise men will appear in the Orient, and their wisdom will cross all seas and frontiers, but people will not trust this wisdom for a long time, and this real truth they will proclaim for a lie. Their souls will not be possessed by the Devil, but by something much worse."
Indeed, mankind appears to still be depending upon science and technology to dig us out of the ecological and population disaster we have created for ourselves. And we are only now beginning to believe that the aboriginals are correct when they say the god we seek is found within ourselves. Many now deny the existence of the Devil. They say the story is a fabrication by religions designed to cause people to fear death and everlasting suffering in Hell.
The discovery of the eternal power of the God within is implied: "The whole world will be plagued by a strange disease and nobody will be able to find a cure. Everybody will say, ‘I know, I know, because I am learned and smart,’ but nobody will know anything. People will think and think, but they will not be able to find the right cure, which will be with God’s help, all around them and in themselves."
Tarabich foresaw space exploration: "Man will travel to other worlds to find lifeless deserts there, and still, God forgive him, he will think that he knows better than God himself. There, except for the eternal peace of God, he will see nothing, but he will sense with his heart and soul all of God’s beauty and power. People will drive in rigs upon the Moon and stars. They will look for life, but life similar to ours they will not find. It will be there, but they will not be able to understand it and see that it is life."
Indeed, the life is in the Universe. It surrounds us. We are all part of a vast, living, information system. But we will not find life that resembles ourselves. This is an amazing revelation from an illiterate peasant living so long ago.
The prophet also foresaw a falling away of love among men for one another. He said: "The more people will know, the less they will love and care for each other. Hatred will be so great between them that they will care more for their different gadgets than for their relatives. Man will trust his gadget more than his first neighbor."
Tarabich said: "Among people of a nation far in the north, a little man will appear who will teach men about love and compassion, but there will be many hypocrites around him so that he will have many ups and downs. Not one of these hypocrites will want to know what is real human grace, but his wise books will remain and all the words he will say, and then people will see how self-deceived they were."
The destruction of the world ecology by industrial development also is foretold: "Among these learned men there will be good and evil men. The evil ones will do evil deeds. They will poison air and water and spread pestilence over the seas, rivers and earth, and people will start to die suddenly of various ailments. Those good and wise will see that all this effort and hard work is not worth a penny and that it leads to the destruction of the world, and instead of looking for wisdom in numbers they will start to seek it in meditation."
There is an apocalyptic vision and possibly another world war that is told: "When they start to meditate more they will be closer to God’s wisdom, but it will be too late because the evil ones will already ravage the whole Earth and men will start to die in great numbers," Tarabich said. "Then people will run away from cities to the country and look for the mountains with three crosses, and there, inside, they will be able to breathe and drink water. Those who will escape will save themselves and their families; but not for long, because a great famine will appear. There will be plenty of food in towns and villages, but it will be poisoned. Many will eat because of hunger and die immediately. Those who will fast to the end will survive, because the Holy Ghost will save them," this prophet said.
At this point Tarabich sees war: "The greatest and angriest will strike against the mightiest and the most furious. When this horrible war starts, woe to those armies that fly over skies; better off will be those who fight on ground and water. People waging this war will have their scientists who will invent different and strange cannonballs. When they explode, these cannonballs instead of killing will cast a spell over all that lives – people, armies and livestock. This spell will make them sleep, and sleep they will instead of fighting, and after this they will come back to their senses." The military is even today developing new non-lethal weaponry that stuns the enemy in the battlefield, but does not kill.
Tarabich notes that the people of Serbia will not fight in this war, "but others will do battle over our heads. Burning people will fall from the sky over Pozega (a town in Serbia)."
He predicts two safe places where people escape the horrors of this war. One is a "country at the end of the world, surrounded by great seas, as big as our Europe" where people "will live in peace, without any troubles. Upon it and over it, not a single cannonball will explode." Also, he said, "those who will run and hide in the mountains with three crosses will find shelter and will be saved to live after in abundance, happiness and love, because there will be no more wars . . ."
