Bulgarian Prophetess “Vanga”
Nowadays, many Russians wonder if Vanga’s prophecy about Russia is going to come true some day or not. In 1979, during her meeting with writer Valentin Sidorov, Vanga said: “All will thaw, as if ice, only one remain untouched – Vladimir’s glory, glory of Russia. Too much it is brought in a victim. Nobody can stop Russia. All will be removed by her from the way and not only will be kept, but also becomes the lord of the world.”
Before her death in 1996, Vanga predicted glorious future for Russia again. According to the Bulgarian clairvoyant, Russia will be the world’s only superpower. Specialists calculated that 68 percent of her prophecies had come true. We only can wait and see if her other prophecies become real or not.
In the small Village of Kuibyshev
On the night of the Glorious Resurrection of Christ Zoë started to cry out especially loud: “Pray!”
The night-shift guards started to tremble and asked, “Why are you crying out so frightfully?” Pay attention to her answer: “How dreadful, the earth is burning! Pray! The whole world is lost because of its sins, pray!” From that moment Zoë was revived, her muscles started to become soft; she came back to life. They eventually put her on a mattress but she continued to cry out and call all to pray for the world which is lost because of its sins, for the earth which is burning because of its lawlessness.

Prophecies of Rasputin
“Fifteen moons after the death, the Holy Mother will be removed of the altars (the religion will be banished) and a choir of seven hundred demons (the Soviet parliament had about 700 members) they will sing a new music (a new political regime) over a swamp of blood. It won’t pass a lot of water under the bridges before in family a furious fight starts (internal disagreements). The cross will be thrown in the basement and hammers will hit the altars (the scythe and the hammer were symbols of the Russian Communism) and fires will devour the Churches. So it will start the hunt of the serpent (Nazism). But the vulture (Stalin) will entrust the sword to a cloud that will kill the serpent in the third moon. The vulture will persecute its worms until they are stabbed from side to side. When the stable is full of oxes, they will open the doors and then good-bye holy place; good-bye holy of holies. This will happen at the time of the Sun. To the cross will have blasphemy and will come the day when the earth won’t be enough to bury the deceased. But the Empire will be short. When the sun burst out, never again will grow any bushes on the hills of Volga. Only after great desolation and great disturbance the holy cross will go back to the altars. And the serpent and the vulture will never be again a fear; as in the holy; as in the holy of holies, where a great man will come to do justice.
The saint mother (the Russians call Russia their mother) will be guided by the brown bear (Stalin) with the sword of steel (Stalin means steel). Tears and blood will remain on his way. His first dance will be at the forest, but it will be brief. The second dance will be under the stars. But the stars will fade and the bear will fall on the sword that will stab him. The white bear (Messiah) will guide the saint mother (Russia) at that time of the happy generation (Russian youth generation) when the fire has been extinguished (end of the communism in Russia). His sword will be made of gold and in the road he walks will leave the delicious perfume of unknown flowers and smiles of happy children. The white bear (Messiah) will come from very far and he will bring a new Law (a new Revelation). He will shine like the SUN, but will have the name of the MOON. His inheritances will be the wisdom.”
Edgar Allan Cayce Predictions
Cayce predicted the failure of communism and the collapse of the Soviet Union:
“[Through Russia], comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism — no! But freedom — freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.”
Cayce’s words, despite all disbelief, were fulfilled in 1991 when the Soviet Union dissolved as a nation, abandoned communism, and instituted economic and political freedom.
Cayce predicted a strong religious movement would come out of Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
In 1991, the fall of the Soviet Union and atheistic communism occurred as Cayce predicted. The resulting freedom to practice religion released a flood of Russian spirituality.
Rick Joyner’s Prophecies
Russia will be the host of the greatest revival that the world has yet seen. Because of it, the soul of the nation will be transcendent, overcoming many of the great problems of the times and helping many other nations to do the same.
Preceding this, Russia has a very difficult road ahead, with some tragic events looming. Eventually the road will become smoother. God’s grace is extended toward Russia, and He is the One who put in Putin. She has at times tottered on the brink of anarchy, but she will grow in stability and wisdom and be a great leader of nations until the end. The Lord has prepared great leaders for Russia in government, business, and the church. These will all be statesmen in their fields, developing a sound and wise interchange with counterparts in other nations to their mutual benefit. Such interchange is essential for the prosperity of Russia, and she must learn to resist the forces of isolation and shortsightedness. Germany, Poland, and Russia will grow in friendship to their mutual benefit and strengthening.
It is the destiny of Russia to precede the world in dealing with some of the problems that the whole world will face. Pray for wisdom from above to show them the way to build upon a foundation that can stand against the pressures to come. When Russia is standing on solid ground, the world will be safer, and she will be able to help pull many other nations out of the quicksand. The potential of the Russian soul is a great treasure. The greatest threat to Russia is not the resurrection of Communism, but the emergence of Fascism.
Legend of the City of Kitezh
Lake Svetloyar and the city of Kitezh have been ingrained in the Russian soul as the symbols of purity, tenacity and immortality. The lake absorbed the city of Kitezh to the end of time and according to legend, it will emerge from it again before the end of the world and the army of the Russian prince will come out of the city’s gates to face Doomsday along with all other Christian souls.

RUSSIA’S MESSAGE TO THE WORLD
In the book which most thoroughly describes the events to occur at the end o the world, the Apocalypse of St. John the Theologian, at the opening of the seventh seal, which precedes the final plague to come upon mankind; it is said that there was silence in heaven for the space of half an hour [Apoc 8:1]. Some have interpreted this to mean a short period of peace before the final events o world history — namely, the short period of the restoration of Russia, when the preaching of world-wide repentance will begin with Russia — that “new, ultimate word” which even Dostoyevsky hoped Russia would give to the world [Pushkin Speech, The Diary of a Writer, tr. Boris Brasol, New York, George Braziller, 1954, p. 980]. Under present world conditions, when the events of one country are known to the whole world almost instantly, and when Russia, cleansed by the blood of its martyrs, indeed has a better chance than any other country to awake from the sleep of atheism and unbelief — we can already conceive the possibility of such an event. As Father Dimitry Dudko and others have said, it cannot be that the blood of Russia’s innumerable martyrs will be in vain; undoubtedly it is the seed of the last great flowering of true Christianity.
But it is easy to become lost in dreams of the future world. We should be aware of what is to happen at the end of the world, and of what may happen in Russia. But spiritual events such as the resurrection of Russia depend upon each individual soul. This event will not happen without the participation of the Orthodox people — our repentance and struggle. And this involves not only the people of Russia itself — it involves the whole of the Russian Diaspora, and all the Orthodox people of the world.
Archbishop John, in the same report to the All-Diaspora Sobor of 1938 which I have already quoted, speaks of the apocalyptic mission of the Russian people outside of Russia:
“In chastising, the Lord at the same time also shows the Russian people the way to salvation by making it a preacher of Orthodoxy in the whole world. The Russian Diaspora has made all the ends of the world familiar with Orthodoxy; the mass of Russian exiles, for the most part, is unconsciously a preacher of Orthodoxy…. To the Russians abroad it has been granted to shine in the whole world with the light of Orthodoxy, so that other peoples, seeing their good deeds, might glorify our Father Who is in heaven, and thus obtain salvation for themselves…. The Diaspora will have to be converted to the path of repentance and, having acquired forgiveness for itself through prayer to God and through being reborn spiritually (will) become capable also of giving rebirth to our suffering homeland” [The Orthodox Word, 1973, no. 50, pp. 92, 94].
Thus the Russians abroad by their living the true life of Orthodoxy, should be already preparing the way for St. Seraphim’s preaching of world-wide repentance. To some extent this is happening, and one can even begin to see, parallel to the Orthodox revival in Russia, a genuine Orthodox awakening in America and other lands outside of Russia.
But it all depends on each on of us: if we are awakening to true Orthodox life, then Holy Russia will be restored; if we are not, then God can withdraw His promises.
Archbishop John ended his report to the 1938 Sobor with a prophecy and a hope that there will be a true Pascha in Russia that will shine forth to the whole world before the very end of all things and the beginning of the universal Kingdom of God:
“Shake away the sleep of despondency, O sons of Russia! Behold the glory of her suffering and be purified; wash yourselves from your sins! Be strengthened in the Orthodox Faith, so as to be worthy to dwell in the dwelling of the Lord and to settle on His holy mountain! Leap up, leap up, arise, O Russia, you who from the Lord’s hands have drunk the cup of His wrath! When your suffering shall have ended, your righteousness shall go with you and the glory of the Lord shall accompany you. The peoples shall come to your light, and kings to the shining which shall rise upon you. Then Lift up your eyes and see: behold your children come to you from the West and the North and the Sea and the East, blessing you in Christ forever. Amen” See more here.
