Perhaps the most famous prophecy Emmanuel Minos has conveyed is a prophecy given by an elderly woman from Valdres, Norway, who stated she had been given a vision from God.
She was in her nineties.
The prophecy was so radical Minos left it to the side, then forgot about it.
Several years later, in the 1990s Minos rediscovered what he had written and was very puzzled.
Society had changed so that the words of the prophecy of marriage dissolution, cohabitants, and immoral pictures on TV (internet), was no longer a radical prophecy, but a mirror of the world.~ Wiki
From Emmanual Minos
"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:
1. "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.
2. "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 been 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 repentance and revival. This will increase markedly just before the return of Jesus.
3. "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 we pet it—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 paragraph 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.
4. "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 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."
Refocus Reports 1/21/15: Obama Thinks Climate Greater Threat than Muslim Extremism, Gray State Death, A-10 Warthog vs ISIS

The Justice Department will seek a stay of an order by a federal judge in Texas that derailed the Obama administration’s actions on immigration, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.
The request will be filed no later than Monday as the Justice Department prepares an appeal, Earnest said.
"There is a solid legal foundation for the president to take the steps that he announced late last year," Earnest said Friday at the White House. "We’re going to continue to pursue this case through the legal system."
The judge’s order and the administration’s response intensify the standoff between the White House and some Republican lawmakers over how to handle the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.
Hanging in the balance is a possible a shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which has responsibility for immigration and border enforcement, when its funding expires on Feb. 27.
Congressional Republicans are seeking to use the department’s funding to overturn President Barack Obama’s directives on immigration by refusing to finance administrative actions that deferred deportations for about 5 million people. Obama has threatened to veto any legislation tying the funding to a change in policy.
House Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, said Sunday he’s willing to let DHS funding lapse.
The issue will reverberate in the 2016 presidential election campaign as Democrats and Republicans vie for support from Hispanics, who make up 17 percent of the U.S. population and are a voting bloc with increasing influence in national elections. Obama won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2012, according to exit polls.
In a speech to Democratic Party leaders Friday in Washington, Obama said Republicans should "stop trying to deport millions of striving young kids who just want to earn their shot at the American dream like the rest of us."
Over the past two years, Obama has taken steps to give temporary legal status to children who were brought to the United States illegally and focus deportation efforts on people convicted of crimes or who pose a danger. He has said he is acting because Congress has repeatedly failed to pass legislation to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws.

“I mean, you had representatives on the floor with ash on their foreheads commemorating the day. And so then you’re going to force them to listen to a prayer that they don’t agree with? It wasn’t very well thought out, I don’t think”
Grand Forks Herald
BISMARCK – Republican leaders in the North Dakota House of Representatives said they canceled the opening prayer by a Muslim on Ash Wednesday because some members thought it was more appropriate to have a Christian deliver the invocation.
Comments made on the District 24 Republicans’ Facebook page – including one posted Monday that called Koleilat’s planned appearances in the House on Wednesday and in the Senate next week “political correctness at its worst” – were brought to House members’ attention Wednesday morning by a district resident who urged lawmakers to “oppose the prejudice, intolerance and ignorance that is encompassed within these posts.”
District 24 Rep. Dwight Kiefert, R-Valley City, was among those who objected to having a non-Christian deliver the prayer on Ash Wednesday.
“I mean, you had representatives on the floor with ash on their foreheads commemorating the day. And so then you’re going to force them to listen to a prayer that they don’t agree with? It wasn’t very well thought out, I don’t think,” he said. “If it would have been a different day, maybe it would have been better.”
The House invocation was ultimately delivered by Pastor Rich Wyatt of Living Hope Church of the Nazarene in Bismarck. He and two other pastors from the Bismarck Ministerial Association do the House and Senate prayer scheduling, and when one of them scheduled Koleilat on Ash Wednesday, “I thought nothing of it,” he said.
But he said Legislative Council staff asked him to switch spots with Koleilat on Wednesday because they were getting pressure from “a bunch of legislators” in the House, though they wouldn’t identify the legislators when asked, he said.
“We just basically switched to try to appease a few people, and they were very appreciative,” he said, adding Koleilat delivered the Senate invocation “in the most professional way you could.”
The prayer was said in English.
Koleilat, a urology transplant surgeon with Sanford Health in Bismarck, said in a phone interview Thursday that he was “not sure really what went on” but he had no problem with the House rescheduling him.
“My whole objective was to give the prayer and then to let the people listen to the word of God. I’m not into politics,” he said. “I have no trouble. I really am grateful that they thought about the Muslim community and invited a person to come.”
Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner, R-Dickinson, and Senate Minority Leader Mac Schneider, D-Grand Forks, both said they heard no complaints from their members.
“We did discuss the chaplain of the day,” Schneider said. “The result was every member of the Senate respectfully and silently took in the prayer.”
House Speaker Wesley Belter, R-Fargo, said Thursday he didn’t support the Facebook posts, and that the only reason for the change was because it was Ash Wednesday.
“It was just purely a Christian event, and so there were a number of members that thought it was appropriate to have someone from the Christian faith on that day,” Belter said. “But he (Koleilat) will be invited back.”
House Majority Leader Al Carlson, R-Fargo, agreed it was more appropriate to have a Christian pastor give the invocation on Ash Wednesday, saying, “Obviously we don’t have any Muslims in this chamber.”
House Minority Leader Kenton Onstad, a Democrat from Parshall, called the situation “terrible” and said Koleilat should have been allowed to deliver the prayer.
“We’ve got to respect all religions,” he said....

This story has been cross-sourced across numerous credible publications across the web.
If indeed, an alternative possibility cannot be found, then mankind may have some rather new and unearthly problems to reckon with....
Balloons sent into the stratosphere came back with the object, no bigger than a human hair, which has a biological "gooey" substance oozing from it
Scientists in the UK say this microscopic metal globe could be proof that aliens are watching us.
Balloons sent 27km into the stratosphere to collect debris came back with the object, no bigger than the width of a human hair.
Professor Milton Wainwright, leader of the joint study by the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology and University of Sheffield, said the structure is made from titanium and vanadium metals and has a biological "gooey" substance oozing from it.
Scientists believe it could contain genetic material used to propagate alien life on Earth.
“It is a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre,” he told the Daily Express website.
"We were stunned when X-ray analysis showed that the sphere is made up mainly of titanium, with a trace of vanadium.
“One theory is it was sent to Earth by some unknown civilisation in order to continue seeding the planet with life.
"This seeming piece of science fiction, called 'directed panspermia', would probably not be taken seriously by any scientist were it not for the fact that it was very seriously suggested by the Nobel Prize winner of DNA fame, Sir Francis Crick.
“Unless of course we can find details of the civilisation that is supposed to have sent it, in this respect it is probably an unprovable theory.”
It bears an eerie similarity to HG Wells' 1898 novel War of the Worlds, which describes a meteor sent to Earth to initiate a Martian invasion.
The tiny sphere landed on one of the sampler balloons after a long fall - as proven by an impact crater likened to that of a meteor striking Earth.
“On hitting the stratosphere sampler the sphere made an impact crater, a minute version of the huge impact crater on Earth caused by the asteroid said to have killed off the dinosaurs," said Prof. Wainwright.
“This impact crater proves that the sphere was incoming to Earth from space, an organism coming from Earth would not be travelling fast enough when it fell back to Earth to cause such damage.
“This seems never before to have been found on Earth.”

The federal committee responsible for nutrition guidelines is calling for the adoption of “plant-based” diets, taxes on dessert, trained obesity “interventionists” at worksites, and electronic monitoring of how long Americans sit in front of the television.
The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) released its far-reaching 571-page report of recommendations to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Thursday, which detailed its plans to “transform the food system.”
The report is open for public comment for 45 days, and will be used as the basis by the government agencies to develop the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The guidelines are used as the basis for government food assistance programs, nutrition education efforts, and for making “decisions about national health objectives.”
DGAC proposed a variety of solutions to address obesity, and its promotion of what it calls the “culture of health.”
“The persistent high levels of overweight and obesity require urgent population- and individual-level strategies across multiple settings, including health care, communities, schools, worksites, and families,” they said.
In response, DGAC called for diet and weight management interventions by “trained interventionists” in healthcare settings, community locations, and worksites.
“Government at local, state, and national levels, the health care system, schools, worksites, community organizations, businesses, and the food industry all have critical roles in developing creative and effective solutions,” they said.
DGAC also called for policy interventions to “reduce unhealthy options,” limit access to high calorie foods in public buildings, “limit the exposure” of advertisements for junk food, a soda tax, and taxing high sugar and salt items and dessert.
“Align nutritional and agricultural policies with Dietary Guidelines recommendations and make broad policy changes to transform the food system so as to promote population health, including the use of economic and taxing policies to encourage the production and consumption of healthy foods and to reduce unhealthy foods,” its report read.
“For example, earmark tax revenues from sugar-sweetened beverages, snack foods and desserts high in calories, added sugars, or sodium, and other less healthy foods for nutrition education initiatives and obesity prevention programs.”
The amount of sedentary time Americans spend in front of computers and TV sets is also a concern to the federal panel.
They recommended “coaching or counseling sessions,” “peer-based social support,” and “electronic tracking and monitoring of the use of screen-based technologies” as a way to limit screen time....
