Prophecy is one of those iffy things.
We’ve all come across the writings of Edgar Cayce or Nostradamus at some point or other. If it isn’t a snippet here online or someone’s home-made video there on YouTube, interpretations of some of the more symbolic passages of say, Nostradamus’ work is as varied and plentiful as the people out there interpreting them.
My gripe with most prophecy is either the person sprouting it is full of it (Gordon Michael Scallion), it’s too unclear and nebulous (Nostradamus) or parts of their predictions have turned out to be completely unfounded (Louis Turi).
However, having said that, there are some people who genuinely seem to have a gift. They’re usually quiet, mind their own business, don’t seek out the spotlight too much and don’t have ads coming at you from all directions. In short, they seem to have the qualities of humility and modesty about them. I think of people like Hopi Grandfathers Martin Gashweseoma and Dan Evehema, Lakota Elders Floyd Red Crow Westerman and Arvol Looking Horse, and more recently Cherokee survivalist expert Grandfather Willy Whitefeather.
Less known in North America and in the English-speaking world are some of the Slavic prophets and teachers like Peter Deunov and his student, Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov. While their readership and followers number in the millions particularly in Europe and South America, they have largely escaped detection by the North American New Age community (and thank heavens for that!), mostly due to the fact that a large bulk of their talks have yet to be translated into English from their native Bulgarian or French.
Far less well-known is a Serbian peasant named Mitar Tarabic from the 1880’s. We know very little about him but he is considered a folk legend in his native Serbia because of the accuracy of his predictions. He predicted the exact outcomes of the lives of most of the Serbian royal family and how Serbia would end up starting WWI. A pious man and one who kept to himself and spent much of his time communing with nature in the forests close to his home, Tarabic confided his visions to the local Orthodox priest for his village, Zaharije Zaharic who recorded them all. Tarabic died in June 1899 and in 1943, Zaharic’s small chapel was burned down by invading German and Bulgarian troops, but most of the material was saved by the family and Zaharic’s original notes are now in the possession of family members living in Australia.
In 1998, I was browsing a local thrift shop and came across a curious title in the $1 book bin called “The Balkan Prophecy” by Zoran Vanjaka and Jura Sever. The book was very thin and after reading a few paragraphs decided to take it home with me. Here is the prophecy in full with my thoughts in (italicized brackets).
Our Times of Stupidity and Hatred
“You see my god-father, when the world starts to live in peace and abundance after the second all-out 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 do you know my god-father, what is human intelligence compared to God’s will and knowledge? Not even a single drop in the ocean.
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 the other world as hairs on the human scalp are close to each other.
With the help of this gadget, man will be able to see everything that is happening all over the world (computers and the internet).
People will drill wells deep in the ground and dig out gold (oil) 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 then in its interior. The earth will suffer because of these open wounds (environmental degradation, open-pit mining, tar sands, oil spills, fracking).
Instead of working in the fields, people will dig everywhere, in right and wrong places, but the real power will be all around them, not being able to tell them: “Come on, take me, don’t you see that I am here, all around you.” (solar, wind and the Earth itself as per theories of another Serb, Nikola Tesla).
Only after many a summer will people remember this real power and then they will realize how stupid it was to dig all those holes. This power will also be present in people, but it will take a long time before they discover and use it (prana, chi).
Thus man will live for a long time, not being able to know himself. There will be many learned men who will think through their books that they know and can do everything. They will be the great obstacle for this realization (scientists), 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 was so simple.
People will do many stupid things, thinking that they know and can do everything, but they will not know anything.(technocrats and bureaucrats).
Wise men will appear in the Orient (Buddhists) 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 worse. They will believe that their illusion is the real truth, although there will be no truth in their heads.
Here at home, it will be the same as all over the world. People will start to hate clean air and this divine freshness and all divine beauty and will hide in rankness (industrialization and urban development, suburban sprawl). Nobody will force them to do that, but they will do it of their own free will.
Here in Kremna, many a field will become a meadow, and many a home will be abandoned, but then those who have left will come back to heal themselves by breathing fresh air.
In Serbia it will not be possible to distinguish a man from a woman. Everybody will dress the same. This calamity will come to us from abroad but it will stay with us the longest. A groom will take a bride, but nobody will know who is who.
People will be lost and more and more senseless day by day. Men will be born not knowing who was their grandfather or great grandfather. People will think that they know everything, but not a thing will they know.
The Serbs will separate from each other, and they will say:”I am not a Serb, I am not a Serb.” Only weaklings will be born and nobody will be strong enough to give birth to a real hero. (The Balkan wars of the 1990s)
At one time, we shall disappear from this land of ours. We shall go north, and then realizing our stupid deed we shall return. When we come back, we shall wise up and chase away the unholy one, not to see him, in God’s name, ever again.
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 , with God’s help, will be all around them and in themselves. (cancer, nature, prana).
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 (moon landing). There he will see nothing except the eternal peace of God, but he will sense with his heart and soul all of God’s beauty and power. People will drive carriages 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.
One who will go there, God forgive him, not believing in God as is proper for an honorable and decent person, when he comes back, he will say: “Oh, you people, who mention God’s name with doubt, go there where I was, then you will see what is God’s mind and power.” (Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who had a spiritual experience on the Moon and went on to found the Institute of Noetic Sciences).
The more people will know, the less they will love and care for each other (materialism over emotional and spiritual happiness). Hatred will be so great between them that they will care more for their different gadgets than for their relatives. Man will trust his gadgets more than his first neighbor…
Among the 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 Judas and 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. (Possibly David Icke, he’s from England and has been talking about how “Infinite Love is the only Truth: Everything Else is Illusion”. His various betrayals over the years are well-documented).
Those who will read and write different books with numbers will think that they know the most (left-brained people). These learned men will let their lives be led by their calculations, and they will do and live exactly how these numbers tell them (bankers, financiers, hedge fund managers).
Among these learned men, there will be good and evil men. The evil ones will do evil deeds (Rothschilds and Rockefellers, corporations). 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.
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 (Before he died mysteriously of a” heart attack”, Hollywood producer Aaron Russo even got a Rockefeller to admit that there are plans to reduce the world population to 500 million and the Rothschilds are now looking into weather-control technology, which means controlling food production).
People will run from the 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 (radioactive?). 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 and they will be close to God.
When wild flowers lose their fragrance, when grace leaves man, when rivers lose their health…then the greatest all-out war will come. (WWIII)
The greatest and the 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 invent different and strange cannonballs, instead of killing, will cast a spell over all that lives; people, armies and livestock. This spell will make them sleep instead of fighting and afterwards they will come back to their senses (Mind control by manipulating frequencies).
Serbia will not fight in this war, but others will do battle over our heads…burning people will fall from the sky above Pozega (a small town).
Only one country at the end of the world, surrounded by great seas, as big as our Europe, will live in peace, without any troubles…upon it or over it, not a single cannonball will explode! (Australia).
Those who will run and hid in the mountains with three crosses will find shelter and will be saved to live afterwards in abundance, happiness and love, because there will be no more wars…
In these times of death, in the Russian mountains, a young man will appear by the name of Mihailo. His face will be bright and his appearance will be graceful. People will be bewildered seeing him walk on the air and he will go to the first monastery and ring all the bells (The Hopi believe in the return of the good white brother named Pahana).
To the people who will gather around him, he will say:
“You have forgotten who I am and that I did not die, but alive went to heaven.” and people will look upon him and say:
“We did not, we did not, you are the holy Archangel Michael”
“You have crucified the Divine Man and the Son of God even though we had given you minds to think and love everything around you. You became beasts and murderers! I did not come to force you by fear to believe, but I came to make you understand! There are no more rich and poor and you are still hating, fighting and killing each other. You have forgotten your soul!”
Then all nations will follow Michael and the world will become a real Eden. There will be food everywhere, in rivers, seas, and forests. Those who will be born then will live happily and for so long that they will forget when they were born.
Michael will be everywhere, but most of the time in Constantinople (Istanbul, meeting of East and West), until all people become one language and one faith. Then satisfied, he will go back to heaven.
A good, noble man with red hair will be sitting on the throne of the world (The King of the world, Melchizedek). Blessed are those who live to see him, because the red-haired man will bring happiness to all. He will live long and will govern until his God-given death…(Age of Aquarius)
During and after his reign, there will be no more wars but sometime in the distant future, unknown to men, because of human stupidity, great evil and hatred will rise again.” (Age of Capricorn or Scorpio).

Another great blog. Thanks for introducing us to this man. I’ve always believed the wisest ones are the ones we never hear of because they don’t seek fame or fortune. Mitar Tarabic seems to be one of those.
Very true Rob, usually the ones who have the most important things to say, stay quiet unless asked. Like you said, they are not in it for the money or attention but rather operate from a place of service, not profit.
Thank you so much for this information. I had read of Deunov, but not Tarabic. I always say, if the “prophet” is charging money, don’t waste your time. They may start out with a true gift, but the ego and the money-grubbing will take it away. Also, I love your gravatar pug image. It’s the only other gravatar pug I’ve seen so far.
