A clairvoyant who claims to be a messenger of God, Horacio Villegas, has predicted a deadly world war to be triggered on the 100th anniversary of the visitation of Virgin Mary.
The Catholic Church confirms that Our Lady of Fatima, Jesus’ mother, appeared to three children in the village of Fatima, Portugal, on May 13, 1917.
Mr Villegas, who had predicted Donald Trump’s win a year before the US polls, said the war will be started by Trump on May 13, which is the anniversary of Virgin Mary’s appearance.
The international conflict, he predicts, will ravage the world for five months, ending on Oct. 13 — a parallel to the last time Mary appeared to the Fatima kids (on October 13, 1917). Then, she prophesied the ending of World War I.
Mr Villegas, who lives in Texas, said: “The main message that people need to know in order to be prepared is that between May 13th and October 13, 2017, this war will occur and be over with much devastation, shock and death.”
He claims the world will initially be tricked by a “false flag” with conflicts emerging between April 13 and May 13 in Syria and North Korea.
The mystic said: “The reason I feel the coming false flag might be during this Holy Week is because just as Christ suffered on a Good Friday at one time, the world is about to enter its Good Friday moment as well and it would fit in God’s timeline as to the start of this dark period in human period in human history that this war would be sparked near Good Friday 2017.”
He claims the chemical attack in Syria was a pre-cursor to World War III: “Russia is already being baited into war through Syria, just as the Zionists were seeking, and China will be baited through North Korea.”
The mystic, who claims to a follower of the Roman Catholic faith, has said his reasoning is also backed by other “prophets”.
Nostradamus, a French physician who published a number of prophecies which are said to have come true, said: “Mabus will soon die, then will come a horrible undoing of people and animals, at once one will see vengeance, one hundred powers, thirst, famine, when the comet will pass.”
Mr Villegas has alleged that “Mabus” may refer to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad as there is talk between world leaders that he could be removed from power by force.
He added: “If Assad is bombed and killed, this could very much fulfil this prophecy because afterwards all hell would break loose.”
His comments come as North Korea has warned it is prepared to go to war if it is provoked by the US.
