Category: John of Jerusalem

Today, I might disappoint a few of my subscribers, and other regular visitors.  However, a new Canadian Email subscriber, who goes by the name of PJB, left a short, inspirational poem in the Comment section of my post entitled John of Jerusalem – Prophecy Number 40, and this has prompted me to post a poem of my own, which I wrote a few years ago in August 2002.  Thank you PJB.


Truth’s Light


The truth is within us but its light is blinding.

We keep our eyes closed while we search without finding

This elusive truth, in the dark we’ve created.


We trip over things without opening our eyes,

When gradual opening would acclimatize

Our vision to light and to all things related.


We continue to shuffle around in the dark:

Just collecting more bruises;  refusing the spark

Of truth that’s within us, as formerly stated.


The avoidance of obstacles, sparing us pain

(And the anguish that surges again and again)

Is certain improvement and should be updated.


We must open our eyes and start living in light.

All the shadows dissolving give us back our sight

And leave us in light, with the truth once more mated.


Our life can change now because all is not fated!






In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will know that all living things are bearers of light

And that they are creatures to be respected

He will have built the new cities

In the sky, on the earth and on the sea.


He will have the memory of what was

And he will know what will be

He will no longer be afraid of his own death

For in his life he will have lived several lives

And the light, he will understand, will never go out.


This prophecy tells us the same thing that all of the world’s religions have been telling us for thousands of years:  every living thing carries within itself part of the universal light, which has been given different names at different times, one of them being “God”.  We now know that our DNA contains the memory of all life on this planet, as well as the knowledge of our future on Earth.  In a similar way, we hold within us the spiritual memory of our origins, and the spiritual knowledge of our future.

In this Golden Age, science and spirituality will come together in a common understanding of both our past and of our future.  Then, we will no longer be afraid of our own death because we will have understood that the light… will never go out.

To conclude this foray into the Prophecies of John of Jerusalem,  I would like to give my answer to the question “Why do some prophets predict the End of the World, and others, like John of Jerusalem, predict a new Golden Age?”.

The End of the World prophets and the Golden Age prophets are both right.  The first see the future we will have if we continue on the road on which we have been travelling.  The second see the future we will have if we take a different path.  The future that a prophet sees is probably a reflection of his own personal pessimism or optimism about which path Man will choose to travel.

Life is all about choices.  When we are children, choices concerning our lives are often made by someone else.  As adults, we make our own.

Our choices are reflections of whom we see ourselves to be.  No choice is necessarily bad in itself, although we may perceive it as such later on.

We are each born with a goal in life, with one or more particular lessons to learn.  The “right” path for each of us is the one which takes us to our goal and teaches us the lessons which we need to learn.  Our “right” path will not be the “right” path for somebody else.  Therefore, as individuals, it is not our role to judge other people’s life choices.

However, while, as individuals, we have our own goals and lessons to be learnt, we are also a tiny part of the human species, which also has a goal and lessons to be learnt.  To reach that goal, while learning the lessons, we need to work together, each of us contributing our particular talents and knowledge.

Humans often travel through time at different speeds.  Some of us are able to pop into the future, or zoom back into the past.  We are never able to stay there for very long, but visits can be frequent.  Both the past and the future can teach us how to attain both our individual goals and our collective goal(s).  We need all the help we can get.

So, which future do we want?  Do we want the End of the World, or do we want the Golden Age?  Are we willing to give up and let chaos reign until the Earth is too sick to be saved, or do we want to do something constructive, both as individuals and as a species, to help the Earth to heal?

It is up to us to decide.  Life is all about choices.



In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will have learnt to give and to share

The bitter days of solitude will be gone

He will believe once more in the spirit

And the Barbarians will have acquired recognition.


But that will come after the war and the fires

That will spring up from the blackened ruins of the towers of Babel

And it will have taken an iron fist

For the disorder to be put in order and for man to find again the right path.


For the fourth time in these prophecies, John refers to the attacks of 11 September 2001.  He tells us that it is as a result of this event that an iron fist will bring back order to the world.

This attack is the detonator which introduces measures which will change the balance of the forces in play in today’s world, and will favorise the coming of the “Great Monarch”, or “Great Frightener”, of whom Nostradamus speaks.

This “monarch” is not necessarily one person;  it could be a dominant nation, which brings peace to the world.

Last prophecy tomorrow.



In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Each person will be like a measured footstep

They will know everything about the world and about their bodies

They will cure illness before it appears

Each person will be healer of himself and of the others.


They will have understood that you have to help to be able to maintain

And man, after the times of narrow-mindedness and of avarice,

Will open his heart and his purse to the poorest

He will feel himself to be a knight of the human order

And in this way a new time will at last begin.


We shall know all about the world and our bodies, so we shall be able to prevent illness.  We shall be able to heal ourselves if we do become ill, and we shall be able to heal others too.

It has always been possible to heal ourselves and to heal others, although, strictly speaking, we do not “heal” others;  they heal themselves.  We can kick-start the healing process in other people, but the actual “healing” can only be done by themselves.

This is perhaps not the place to enter into details, but I, myself, have had some small experience of helping people and animals to heal themselves.  Anyone can do it.  There are different ways of going about it.  The way in which I feel the most comfortable is by “plugging in” to the energy floating about in the air.

I am not a physicist, so cannot explain it in scientific terms.  However, I believe that this energy is a form of electricity.  The same sort that flows through our bodies and through everything on Earth.  What I do, is to use my body as a sort of lightning rod, fill up with this energy, then project it through my hands to the body in need of it.

It is illegal in most Western countries to do this sort of thing with humans if you do not have a medical degree, which I haven’t, so I have only practised directly on animals.  However, it is also possible to do the same thing at a distance, and without the knowledge of the human receiving the help.

I find it very contradictory that you are not allowed to help someone to heal, but that you can also be legally charged with non-assistance to a person in danger, if you don’t help him.  However, at the moment, it is best to keep any assistance secret.

John tells us that the time will come when men’s minds will be opened and that this sort of thing will be understood and accepted generally.  Then, those who practise it, will be able to do it openly, instead of having to hide.

The main reason for it being illegal, is financial.  Doctors spend long, difficult and expensive years getting their degrees, and do not appreciate “uneducated” people helping some of their medical failures to get better, free-of-charge.

It is unfortunate that our modern Western doctors are not taught any of the “alternative” techniques of helping others to heal.  Surgery has its place, but does not need to be used nearly as often as it is.  Chemicals should be only a last resort treatment, when there is no natural remedy available.

John is telling us that these problems will be resolved in the future.  He also tells us that men and countries will start to share their riches with the poorest among us, and that each of us will feel himself to be in charge of protecting others, like a knight of the human order.

Thirty-ninth prophecy tomorrow.



In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Roads will go from one end of the earth and the sky to the other end

Forests will be dense again

And the deserts will have been irrigated

The waters will have become pure again.


The earth will be like a garden

Man will watch over everything that lives

He will purify that which he has soiled

He will feel as if all the earth is his home

And he will be wise in thinking of the days to come.


This description of our Earth, and of our relation with it, must be balm to the hearts of environmentalists everywhere around the world.  Their efforts will not have been in vain.  Finally, our technology will have been used to clean up the mess we have made and restore the Earth to good health.

However, the only way that we are going to get there, is to let our politicians know that that is what we want, and “get on with it immediately” – please.  Let us remain polite.

Before that can happen, mentalities need to change.  Fast.

Thirty-eighth prophecy tomorrow.



In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will have a second birth

The Spirit will take hold of the human throng

Who will worship in brotherhood

Then the end of the barbarous times will begin.


This will be the time of a new vigour of the Faith

After the black days of the beginning of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Happy days will open up

Man will again find the path of Men

And the earth will be in order.


Here, John seems to be announcing a universal spiritual awakening, after all of our present suffering and violence.  Men will communicate with each other at last, promoting understanding and mutual co-operation.

The second part of the prophecy speaks of spiritual renewal after the disappearance of divisive dogmas.  Science and spirituality will no longer oppose each other, but will blend in a common understanding of Man and his role in Life.

And the earth will be in order.

Thirty-seventh prophecy tomorrow.

Why have the Prophecies of John of Jerusalem, who died around 1120,  taken so long to be generally known?

For thousands of years, prophets were accepted and respected members of the community.  All powerful people and organizations had their own “official” prophets.  No-one did anything important without consulting the augures or the oracles.

The Roman Catholic Church had its own prophets and was suspicious of anyone operating without its approval.  Thousands of people, including prophets, were accused of magic, witchcraft and/or dealings with the Devil, and were burnt to death.

It is possible that John of Jerusalem chose to keep his prophecies secret for this reason.  Another possible reason is that they concern events starting to occur nearly one thousand years afterward and, as he would have known, things often remain hidden until they are needed.

John of Jerusalem was one of the founders of the military and religious Order of the Temple and died, at the age of 77,  not long after its creation in 1118.  It is probable that his manuscript was kept in the archives of the Order after his death.

In 1312, Pope Clement V closed down the Order, distributing its lands and buildings to other Orders, except for those in France which were co-opted by the Crown.  Philippe le Bel of France, had been at the origin of the closing down of the Order, which had become very rich and therefore powerful.  He had arrested one hundred and thirty-eight Temple Knights in 1307 on trumped-up charges and, after years of torture, a lot of them were eventually burnt at the stake in 1314, including the Grand Master, Jacques de Molay.

What happened to the French Temple archives?  Most likely, part of them at least were smuggled out of France to other commanderies.

As for the Prophecies of John of Jerusalem, according to Jean de Mareuil, they turned up at the beginning of the twentieth century in a synagogue in Varsovia (Poland).  The nazis found the manuscript in 1941, then, at the end of the Second World War, the Russians took it.  It was discovered in the archives of the KGB in the sixties and presented at last to the world by Professor Galvieski.

How the Prophecies finally got here is irrelevant.   They have arrived in time to help us negotiate a difficult period in the history of civilization.  Are we willing to learn the lessons they teach us?  Or are we going to waste time denying their origins?  No man is deafer than the one who refuses to hear.



In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will no longer be the only ruler for woman will come and seize the sceptre

She will be the great mistress of the future times

And that which she thinks, she will impose on men

She will be the mother of this Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

She will spread the warm softness of the sea after the days of the Devil

She will be beauty after the ugliness of the barbarous times

The Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand will change into a gentle time

People will love and they will share

They will dream and they will give birth to the dreams.


This prophecy is about a normal evolutionary cycle.  Humanity has previously known periods of feminine domination.  Numerous societies have functioned under the rule of women, and there are tribes today where the matriarcat is still the rule.  A great number of other animal societies are matriarcal.

In Europe, female regents, mothers, wives or mistresses have often weighed heavily on the course of History, even when the ruler was officially male.  It wasn’t until Napoleon started invading countries and structuring the post-French Revolutionary period with the Code Napoleon, that women were deprived of all the rights and responsiblities which they had enjoyed for centuries, and which were only gradually returned to them over the course of the twentieth century.

In other parts of the world, women are still sometimes considered as little more than cattle.

John speaks of feminine softness and gentleness, which is the traditional image of the “eternal woman”.  It is true that women have greater sensitivity than men and, usually, conciliatory talents absent in a lot of males.  At the same time, they have proven that they know how to govern with a strong hand.

John’s vision probably reflects a time when power and domination will no longer be the ruling values of our societies.  Mutual understanding, sharing, conciliation will take over in a time when humanity will no longer need war lords, and when gentleness and beauty will reign.

Thirty-sixth prophecy tomorrow.



In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will know what the spirit of all things is

The stone or the water, the body of the animal or the gaze of others

He will have pierced the secrets that the ancient Gods possessed

And he will open door after door in the labyrinth of the new life.


He will create with the gushing power of a water source

He will teach the knowledge to the multitude of men

And the children will know more about the earth and the sky than anyone before them

And Man’s body will be bigger and skilful

And his mind will have embraced all things and will have understood them.


This prophecy appears to tell us that we will know everything about everything.  Really.  We won’t just think that we do.  We will pass this knowledge to everyone.  It will no longer be limited to specialists, or kept secret by individual countries.  All humans will have access to it.

When?  90% of today’s knowledge is connected to the twentieth century.  The acceleration of knowledge had reached the point, in the year 2000, of doubling every seven years.  It was estimated then that, if discoveries continued at the same rate, they would double, in 2050, every two hours.

Total knowledge and understanding are accessible to us if we can just stop thinking of everything in terms of financial gain.  Once we get over this obsession with money, we will free ourselves to pursue the right paths to absolute knowledge.

So, once again, when will this happen?  Saint John speaks of a very troubled period at the beginning of the third millenium, but announces the beginning of the Golden Age after 2020.

Saint Remy also speaks of a religious and monarchical Parousia around 2020, which seems to agree with the prediction of the coming of the Great Monarch, great pacifier, announced fairly clearly by Nostradamus.

Saint Malachie predicts the end of the Roman Catholic Popes around 2026, but not the disappearance of faith, which will become ecumenical.

Nostradamus puts the Golden Age between 2030 and 2050.

All of these prophecies seem to agree, give or take a few years, which would indicate that 2020 might be some sort of key year for opening our access to better times.

Thirty-fifth prophecy tomorrow.



In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Men will be able to go down under the waters

Their bodies will be new and they will be fish

And some will fly high, higher than the birds

As if stones don’t fall.


They will communicate with each other

For their minds will be so greatly open that they will receive all messages

And dreams will be shared

And they will live as long as the oldest of men

The one of whom the Holy Books speak.


This prophecy is a difficult one for me to comment.  Is John just having trouble describing future technology, or is he saying that our bodies will have changed so much that we will be fish?  He does not say “like fish”.  He says that we will “be fish”.

There has been some experimentation in filling our lungs with a substance which allows us to stay under water for extended periods of time.  This was a few decades ago.  I don’t know if this sort of thing is still being done.

We know that some animals, such as dragons and dolphins, returned to the water, having previously left it to live on land.  Dragons came back onto land, and are now mostly extinct, which shows that dolphins made the right choice.

During our conception and development in our mother’s womb, we go through the entire cycle of evolution.  We don’t actually use our lungs for breathing until we are ejected from the womb.  Theoretically, it could be reasonably simple, with a bit of genetic tweaking, to transform some of us into “fish” again.  Unlike the dolphin, we would not have to adapt “naturally”, which would take numerous generations of us living almost continuously in water.  We could change our DNA and transmit the change to our children.

If large chunks of our planet disappear under the rising seas, this could be part of our coping strategy.

John also speaks of us flying higher than the birds.  He doesn’t mention any machines, so he is probably referring to some sort of levitation.  Some humans are able to control levitation.  Most of us, if we levitate at all, are unable to control it.

Levitation is due to a change in the way that we vibrate, usually connected to our emotional state of mind.  This change eliminates part of the pull of gravity and can send us soaring into the air.  When this happens unexpectedly, it often causes fear.  As soon as we feel fear, our vibration changes and we come back down to earth – or remain desperately clinging to a tree branch, waiting for help.

I had one brush with levitation when I was eight years old.  It was preceded, and accompanied, by a feeling of great joy, happiness and love for the entire Earth.  I wanted to hug the sky.  I was running at the time, and did not immediately realize that my feet were no longer touching the ground.  I only rose about 30 centimetres, and kept travelling forward at the same speed, but I have talked to people who had friends who had had the “whoosh, then treetop” experience.

In the middle of the nineteenth century, a gentleman by the name of Daniel Dunglas Home floated in and out of upstairs windows in London, as his party trick.  So he could definitely levitate at will and control speed and direction while he was doing it.

Perhaps, when our spirituality has developed more universally, we shall be joyful and loving enough to levitate at will.

In the second part of this prophecy, John appears to be speaking about telepathy and sharing dreams.  We know that people often communicate mentally with each other.  I used to communicate in this way with my cousin.  That was before mobile telephones.

I also sent messages in this way to my dog, who responded to them.  It is very easy to do this with animals; you just have to remember to send images, not words.  It is also easier for humans to receive images rather than words, although we can do both if we imagine the word written down, and send it as an image.

John tells us that we are going to live much longer, too.  A healthy, stress-free, spiritual life of love and understanding toward all living things, is guaranteed to lengthen our lives.  We are genetically programmed to live 130 to 140 years.  Already, our average life expectancy increases by three months every year.  If this keeps going, who knows where it will end?

Thirty-fourth prophecy tomorrow.
