?? Alois Irlmaier (1894-1959)

(??) ALOIS IRLMAIER (1894-1959)

Deciding whether or not to include Alois Irlmaier in the Timeline has been a tough call. Although a Catholic, Irlmaier is not a Church-approved mystic, however, there has not been an official condemnation of his prophetic gifts or visions as of yet either, or at least I have not found any.

Alois Irlmaier was born in Scharam near Siegsdorf in Upper Bavarian on June 8, 1894. The son of a farmer, he was a soldier in WWI (1914-1916).

In 1920 he married Maria Schieslinger and raised four children with her, one of whom was a foster son. In that same year he took over the father's farm.

In 1928 he started work a well builder and become known for his dowsing skills. It is said from the time he was a boy he could feel when water was present, but the gift grew stronger when he become older and could always find underground water sources.  He also experienced his first prophetic “visions” during this year, and according to a reporter for the Merkur newpaper in Germany named Herbert Frank, this happened after he had seen Our Lady.

Irlmaier said to Frank this occured when during the 1928 vintage he had helped to install an eletrical system for a Austrian farmer in Kuchl.  At lunchtime he came into the parlor and saw on the wall a picture of the Madonna surrounded by twelve saints.  (Possibly he meant the Apostles.)  The picture captivated his attention.  He was suddenly stunned to see the Madonna step out of the frame, grow to life size, look at him for a moment, then smile at him before returning to the picture.  Irlmaier said he was stiff like a block of wood from the shock.  He said that since that time he could see everything, from people who were deceased and wearing 'sleazy robes' (perhap an indication of the sins they had died in, or the state of their souls), also Our Lord on the Cross and all many of sacred things without him wanting to see them.  (Source: www.merkur.de

Irlmaier then startled Frank when he was able to describe to him in detail his whole life:

" Irlmaier drilled his gaze into me, leaned back, frowned, almost closed his eyes, stared in front of him and began: 'I see ...' And then there were descriptions from my life path, individual experiences, character traits, details about people close to me ... A hot flush shot into my head, my heart stopped beating, I thought I was losing the ground under my feet, and he spoke as if I was going to unpack my very own secrets ..." (Oct. 1949) (Source: www. merkur.de)

 When asked how he saw his 'visions' Irlmaier replied:

In pictures in the air, when I concentrate, a kind of film strip runs in front of me that shows me what I want from the past, present or future. Mostly in the morning, but also during the day, sometimes without my doing anything, in the fog, or right in front of my eyes. How, it is a mystery to me, even today?”  (Source: www.merkur.de.)

His visionary skills began to attract attention, and from 1939 Alois Irlmaier was increasingly visited by people who sought for advice and information. He built a small hut for this purpose because so many people came to his property on the weekends. He offered his services for free and were completely voluntary. It is said he was able to predict the impact of bombs and air raid and saved many lives.  He also helped people find missing relatives after WWII.  People would show him photographs of their loved ones to find out if they were alive.   If his visionary sight showed him the person in a shadow, he knew they were dead.  He saw the dead all the time and told people to pray for the dead.

He was also called in to help solve criminal cases. There is a documented incident of a trial in Traunstein in 1950 in which Irlmaier had requested the body of a dead man who was believed to have died from natural causes be exhumed.  Irlmaier predicted they would find the deceased had been poisoned, for he saw tablets in the dead man's intenstines, and that a black haired woman was the murderer.  The body was exhumed and it was discovered he had been killed with arsenic, and that the man's lover had indeed been involved with his murder.   

In another murder case the body was missing.  Irlmaier could see where the body was buried and also declared the man would have a silver plate in his stomach.  It was exactly as he had described it.

It is said  General Clay, head of the US occupation zone in Germany, sought advice from Irlmaier - and even Chancellor Konrad Adenauer (CDU)!

Due to his singular gifts of vision, he is described as a clairvoyant as a result, but that seems to imply some form of occult link and there is no evidence he was ever involved with the occult or was a confidence trickster.  Especially if his gift came after seeing Our Lady as he claimed, it had to be a mystic gift, not a psychic one.

However, that did not stop people from claiming he was a fraudster and even a warlock.

In 1947 Irlmaier was reported to the local court in Laufen by a pastor who accused him of fraud and 'jugglery', which was a criminal offense under the Bavarian Police Criminal Code until 1957. Irlmaier had at this time 15 previous criminal records, seven were due to accusations of fraud and the other eight times due to payment / debt difficulties.

During the trial two witnesses stated that Irlmaier's prophecies were contradictory and they did not believe him, while five other witnesses testified that Irlmaier's interpretations were correct. Irlmaier then astounded the court when he was able to describe what the Judge's wife was wearing that particular day and what she was doing right at the time without having seen her or indeed, having never met her. "“Your wife is now at home. A red dress is on and a gentleman is with her. Let's see if it's true," Irlmaier declared, also stating the two were drinking coffee together, and, it turned out to be exactly true.   A fraud conviction was therefore ruled out. The court also cleared Irlmaier of the accusation of juggling, since this could not be determined with the necessary certainty.

The court ruled, “In the present case, the court cannot make a clear statement that the accused is a juggler. Conversely, this is not intended to establish that the defendant's visions… actually arose from a gift of vision. ” However, the court also noted: “The witnesses heard, have confirmed the existence of the gifts of clairvoyance of the accused, and testified things so astonishing and beyond explanation by only the forces of nature, in a way that is impossible to define him as a charlatan.” This ruling can still be found in the Munich State archives: (BezA / LRA 208.026) 

Irlmaier continues to fascinate today as he made several frightening prophecies regarding the next World War, the Age of Peace and the crowning of a new Emperor.

He also predicted his own death, and it is said he was glad to be dying before the next War broke out, because he did not want to live through what he saw. 

 Irlmaier died of liver cancer in Freilassing on July 26, 1959. 

Just before his death in 1959, he was asked if his visions were still valid.  He replied:

"I see events even more clearly today because they are closer."

(Source. www.merkur.de)

For some reason, his visions did not attract or warrant an examination from Church officials, however, he does not seem to have said anything contrary to the Faith either. So, it is still possible he could have been given a unique gift of prophetic discernment. It was noted he always helped people with his visionary gifts without ever asking for money, and, he was charged with debt difficulties, (he had eight criminal records for debts), so it obvious he was not making money from his visions. It appears he died a faithful Catholic.

Of interest, his prophecies of the future are remarkably close to those of Marie-Julie Jahenny and other approved mystics with regards to the wars, the revolt of Paris, the plagues that are coming started by an economic crisis and a time of futuristic diabolical war inventions, also the Three Days of Darkness, and, he also predicted the coming of an Emperor that would bring the peace (aka the Great Catholic Monarch).

Considering he may have had a prophetic gift, I have included his prophecies in the Timeline, with question marks (??) to be careful and to read the following with discernment since the Church has not officially ruled on his visions.


Prophecy of Credit Card and Smartphones, the 'Zuban boxes' (?)

On the internet there is a site called 'The Eponymous Flower' saying Irlmaier also told various prophecies to a woman who visited him several times during the years 1954 -1957 in the Bavarian town of Piding near the Austrian border. Apparently their source was also the site www.alois-irlmaier.de but I have not found the following testimonies on that site – however, these prophecies are also elsewhere on the internet, also on German sites, so it is possible Irlmaier may have made them.

According to the woman, Irlmaier told her that people would pay for things with 'card board' or 'card boards'.

He is also reported as having seen "people speak closely in the Zuban-box -- to play with it."

A Zuban box is a brightly coloured box of cigarettes – it has been suggested Irlmaier had seen smartphones and had no idea how to describe them except they resembled the size and colour of the Zuban boxes.

He also told her that before the third world war starts, there would be a single currency, then a terrible lapse in faith.

The year when the war starts will be very warm - the Bavarians would already be mowing in March.  The event would happen when the Middle East would be in a tumult.

After the war, the world's climate will have changed, it will be warmer - it would be so warm in Bavaria that limes and oranges will be grown in Piding.


Prophecy about the Currency after the Deustsche Mark (1948).

The webmaster of the German site www.www.alois-irlmaier.de says that in 2011 he interviewed a man living in Siegsdorf, not far from Irlmaier's place of birth.

The man told him that in 1948 when the new Deutsche Mark was introduced he asked Irlmaier about how he thought this currency would fare – Irlmaier is said to have replied:

*) “This money is fine, but you have to be careful about what comes after.”

(NOTE: in 1999 the Deutsche Mark was replaced by the Euro- the Deutsche mark ceased to be legal currency in 2002.)


Prophecy apparently for Germany, but could also apply everywhere:

According to a recent article by the Merkur newpaper, this Irlmaier told the following to a lady named Maria Luise Bender in 1950:

First comes prosperity like never before.
Then there is a decline in faith like never before.
Then an unprecedented corruption of morals.
Then a large number of strangers (foreigners) come to the country.
Inflation is high.
The money is losing value more and more.
The revolution soon follows.
Then the Russians attack the West overnight.

(Source: Prophecies from the German Site: www.www.alois-irlmaier.de, also www.merkur.de.

(NOTE: one cannot but help link this prophecy of high inflation and devaluation of money with his prophecy of the Euro.  Also, compare with the following prophecies below.)

Prophecy of the Rise of Corrupt Governments and Corporations after 1952:

The webmaster of the German site www.www.alois-irlmaier.de says an old innkeeper from Traunreut told him that in 1952 Irlmaier had exclaimed to the innkeeper's mother:

"Now the three robber knights are coming!"  When she asked who he meant, Irlmaier is said to have replied:

"The tax office, the banks and the insurance companies!"


Prophecy for Germany (and possibly elsewhere):

“Before the third war, there will be taxes that nobody can pay.”

(Source: the German Site: www.www.alois-irlmaier.de)

(NOTE / OBSERVATIONS: As we know, Europe already has very high taxes due to its socialised systems.  Income taxes can reach has high as 47% dependding on the country, and sales (VAT) tax is in the 20% brackets depending on what you buy.

Marie-Julie Jahenny foretold that a manufactured crisis (economic) would cause the workers to revolt and would be the cause of the civil war that comes - unbearable taxes and the Euro manipulated to become worthless could be the start of it when compared with Irlmaier's visions.   

Note, the beginning of the economic crisis started in 2007 / 2008 during the 'Great Recession' when banks nearly collapsed. That situation had started a few years previously when Pres. Bush Jr. and Greenspan lowered the interest rates to record low rates for that time - to 1% - to keep Americans' minds off the war in Afghanistan and Iraq by allowing borrowing to become cheaper - banks became reckless and lent out loads of money, often without proper collateral, and even gave mortagaes to people even on welfare!    Bad loans were re-packaged and sold off to other banking institutions, which nearly crashed the banks as a result.  A temporary fix was found by printing money to keep the banks from collapsing. As we know from history, printing money, which is now called 'quantitative easing', eventually leads to crashing currencies and making them worthless.  To this day, Europe still resorts to quantitative easing.    Austerity grew and the economy stagnated.  It has never really recovered.  Interest rates have remained at record low levels, and even at negative interest rates in some countries to where people are paying the banks to keep their money!

Fast forward to 2019, the Yellow Jacket protests in France started over tax increases and the protests have not stopped for well over a year since 2019- they have now recently combined with the pension reform protests.  Things do not look good in France.)


Prophecy of No Snow on the Watzmann

The same site reports Irlmaier was befriended by a family in Berchtesgaden and that Irlmaier talked about the large snow cap on the Watzmann mountain near Berchtesgaden, which normally lasts year round.

* Irlmaier is said to have predicted when this snow cap can no longer be seen, then the great darkness will follow.

(NOTE: Irlmaier predicted the THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS, as the 'great darkness', and it will break out during the next world war. Note, the climate is now warming and glaciers are melting … it is said the Watzmann glacier is melting like all the others.)


* The Future War - World War III

 The following are prophecies recorded by a Dr. Conrad Adlmaier in a book entitled “Blick in die Zukunft”, (“View in the Future” or 'Future View'), first published February 1950.

Some websites also claim Adlmaier later talked about other predictions he did not include in his book, but were later published by a third person. The following prophecies also include them, (unfortunately, there is no indication as to which of those below was from his book or published by a third party).

(NOTE: the following text is from an odd translation of the German- from the paragraphs above we saw Irlmaier's visions are in agreement with Marie-Julie Jahenny's visions in that the revolutions will break out first, then the Russian invasions and wars. We find Irlmaier also says the Three Days of Darkness then occurs during the War, which is also in agreement with Marie-Julie Jahenny.  So, the following paragraphs below give details, the are obviously not all in sequential order of events.)

Irlmaier: "Everything calls peace, Shalom! Then it will occur - a new Middle East war suddenly flames up, big naval forces are facing hostility in the Mediterranean - the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkans. (Some texts also say “I See the explosive spark falling on the powder keg in the Balkans”)

I see a "large one" falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him - then impact is on impact. ..." 

"Two men kill a third (who is) high ranked. They were paid by other people (to kill him). ..." 

"The third murder occurred. Then the war starts. ..." (NOTE: / OBSERVATIONS: it must be a very high ranking world leader who is knifed to death that will start the war.  Some accounts say this with be the third of three murders or three assasination attempts.)

"One of the murderers is a small black man, the other a little bit taller, with bright (light) colored hair. I think, it will be at the Balkans, but cannot say it exactly. ..." 

"The year before the war will be a fruitful year with much fruit and grain. After the murder of the third it starts overnight. ... I see quite clearly three numbers, two eights and a nine. But I cannot say what it means and cannot state a time. The war begins at sunrise. It comes along rapidly. The farmers sit in the pub playing cards, when the foreign soldiers look through the windows and doors. Quite black an army comes from the east, but however everything occurs very rapidly. I see a three, but I do not know if it means three days or three weeks. It comes from the golden city. (Prague) The first worm begins at the blue Water in the northwest and goes to the Swiss borders.  As far as Regensburg no more bridges crossing the Donau (i.e Danube) exist, they do not come from the south of the blue water." 

"... Then impact is on impact. Massed units march from the East into Belgrade and moved forward to Italy. Thereafter three armored wedges immediately advance with lightning speed in the north of the Danube over West Germany towards the Rhine - without preliminary warning. This will occur so unexpectedly that the population flees full of panic to the west. Many cars will clog the roads - if they would have stayed at home or would not have used the main streets. Everything, which will be an obstacle for the rapidly advancing tanks on highspeed-motorways and other fast-motorways, will be down-rolled. I cannot see any Danube-bridges above Regensburg anymore. Hardly anything remains of the big city Frankfurt.. The Rhine Valley will be devastated, mainly by air. ..." 

"... I see three spearheads coming: the below spearhead comes along over the forest, but then pulls up itself northwest alongside the Danube. The line is for instance Prague, Bavarian forest and northwest. The blue water is the southern boundary. The second spearhead goes from east to west over Saxony, the third from northeast to southwest. Now I see the earth like a ball before me, on which the lines of the airplanes step out (project), which do now fly up like swarms of white pigeons (doves) from the sand. The Russian does not stop anywhere, while running in his three wedges. Day and night they run in order to reach the Ruhrdistrict, where the many furnaces and fire-places are... " 

"The second spear comes westwards over Saxony towards the Ruhrdistrict, exactly like the third, which goes from northeast westwards over Berlin. Day and night the Russians run, inexorably their target is the Ruhrdistrict... " 

"...Immediately the revenge comes from across the large water. However the yellow dragon invades in Alaska and Canada at the same time. But he comes not far..." 

"I see the earth like a ball before me, on whom now the white pigeons fly near, (doves) a very large number coming up from the sand. And then it rains a yellow dust in a line. When the golden city (Prague) is destroyed, it begins. Like a yellow line it goes up to the city in the bay. It will be a clear night, when they begin to throw it. The tanks are still driving, but those who sit in these tanks became quite black. Where it falls down, everything will be dead, no tree, no bush, no cattle, no grass, this becomes withered and black. The houses still exist. I don't know what it is and so I cannot tell it. It is a long line. Who goes over this line, dies. The ones, who are on the one side cannot go over to the other side. Then everything at the spearheads breaks down. They all must go to the north. What they have with them, they throw away. Nobody will come back anymore... " 

"The airplanes drop a yellow powder between the Black Sea and the North Sea. Thus a death strip is created, straight from the Black Sea to the North Sea, as wide as half Bavaria. In this zone no more grass can grow, let alone humans live. The Russian supply is interrupted... " 

"Swarms (or flocks) of pigeons ascend from the sand. Two herds achieve the combat area from the west to southwest... The squadrons turn towards the north and cut off the course of the third army. From the east there are many caterpillars (worms?). But in the caterpillars everybody is already dead, although the vehicles keep rolling on, in order to gradually stop automatic. Here, the pilots also throw off (or throw out) their small black boxes. They do explode, before they touch the soil, and spread a yellow or green smoke or dust. What comes in contact with this becomes dead, whether it is a human, an animal or a plant. For one year no organism is allowed to enter this area, otherwise it will expose itself to the largest mortal danger. At the Rhine the attack is finally repelled. From the three spearheads no soldier will come home anymore... "

"These boxes are satanic. When they explode, a yellow and green dust or smoke arises, everything that comes in contact to it, is dead, it is a human, an animal or a plant. The humans become quite black and the meat fall off their bones, so sharp is the poison." 

"... By a natural catastrophe or something similar the Russians suddenly evade to the north. Around Cologne the last battle has started. ..." 

"... At the Rhine I see a half-moon, which wants to devour everything. The horns of the sickle want to close. What this means, I do not know. ..." (NOTE: could this be Islamic invaders?)

"Then they are flying to the north. In the center there is a mark, there lives nothing anymore, no human, no animal, no grass. They fly to the quite north, where the third spearhead had come in, and do cut off everything. So they will all be murdered, nobody from these three armies will come back home anymore. ...But then I see someone flying, coming from the east, who drops something into the large water, so that something strange will happen. The water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down, then everything is inundated (flooded). There is an earthquake and the half of the big island will sink. The whole action will not last long, I see three lines - three days, three weeks, three months, I don't know exactly, but it won't last long!" 

"A single airplane, which comes from the east, throws something into the large water. Then the water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down. Everything is inundated. There is an earthquake. The southern part of England slips into the water. Three large cities will be ruined: one will be destroyed by the water, the second is located so high in the Sea, that you can only see the church tower and the third falls in." 

"One part of England disappears, when the thing falls into the sea, which the pilot drops. Then the water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down. What this thing is, I do not know..." 

"The countries at the sea are endangered of the water heavily, the sea is very unrest, the waves go high as a house; it foams, as if it would cook/boil in the underground. Islands disappear, and the climate changes. A part of the proud island sinks, if the thing falls into the sea, which the pilot drops. Then the water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down. What this thing is, I do not know. When it comes, I do not know."


 "The January will be so warm at some time that the mosquitoes will dance. It can be that we already come into a time, when there won't be a normal winter at all, like we do know it now."

"...During the war the big darkness comes, which lasts 72 hours." - (NOTE: see the prophecy related to the Watzmann snow cap above.)

"It will become dark at a day during the war. Then a hail impact, consisting of lightning and thunder, breaks out and an earthquake vibrates the earth. Please do not go out of the house at that time. The lights do not burn, except candle light, the (electric?) current stops. Who inhales the dust, gets a cramp and dies. Do not open the windows, cover it completely with black paper. All open-standing water become poisonous and also all open-standing meals, which are not in locked doses. (i,e completely air tight containers) Also no meals in glasses (i.e glass containers), because they would not cover it up completely. (i.e not be sealed completely, or they won't hold according to some texts / translations).   "Buy a few soldered tin cans with rice and legumes. Bread and flour hold, moisture spoils like meat, except in tin cans. Water from the tap is drinkable, but not milk. People won't be very hungry like this during the catastrophe and darkness ... "

(NOTE / Observations: we must use our heads here - since we will or should have our homes sealed, it is apparent he does not mean food we have safely stored in our own homes, but food we find afterwards that we will have to forage for eventually - anything we find in an area outside such as grocery stores or other people's houses that were not prepped and sealed for the Three Day survival will not be safe unless it is found in a can with no dents or burst seams.  Milk cartons, open water sources such as ponds, and plastic containers cannot be trusted - even glass jars - as we won't be able to trust the seals.  He says we won't be hungry during the Darkness, but 'like this' means a time of hunger will come, mostly because we'll have to forage for a few years as Marie-Julie warned food would be hard to grow the next few years after the Darkness.)

Outside the death by dust goes around, many humans die.  After 72 hours everything is over. But again: Do not go out of the house, do not look out of the windows, and keep the blessed candle light burning. And pray. Overnight there will die more humans than in the two world wars before.(NOTE / Reminder: the candle must be blessed and 100% beeswax according to Marie-Julie Jahenny.those not 100% beeswax will not light.)

"...Do not open a window during during the 72 hours. The rivers will have so little water that you can easily pass them. The cattle falls, the grass becomes yellow and dry, the dead humans will become quite yellow and black. The wind drives the clouds of death off to the east."

"...The city with the iron tower becomes the victim of its own people. (The revolt in Paris).  They ignite everything. Revolution is, and everything is going wildly. The islands before the coast sink, because the water is quite wild. I see large holes in the sea, which will be filled, when the enormous waves return. The beautiful city at the blue sea sinks almost completely in the sea and in the dirt and sand, which the sea ejects. I see three cities sinking in the south, in the northwest and in the west." 

"The large city with the high iron tower is on fire. But this has been done by the own people, not by those, which came from the east. And I can exactly see that the city is made equal to the ground. And in Italy it is going wildly too. They kill many people there and the Pope flees, but many clergymen will be killed, many churches collapse. "
“A revolution breaks out in the boot country (Italy), I think it's a religious war because they kill all clergymen. I see priests with white hair lying dead on the floor. There is a bloody knife behind the Pope, but I think he comes out in a pilgrim's dress.”

"In Russia a revolution breaks out and a civil war. The corpses are so much that you cannot remove them off the roads anymore. The cross comes to honours anew. The Russian people believe in God anew. The large ones among the party leaders commit suicide and in the blood the great guilty is washed off. I see a red mass, mixed with yellow faces, it is a general riot and horrible killing. Then they sing the Easter song and burn candles in front of sacred pictures. By the prayer of Christianity the monster of hell dies; also the young people believe anew in the intercession of God's mother." 

"After the victory an emperor is crowned by the fleeing Pope. (NOTE: sound like the Great Catholic Monarch and the Angelic Pontiff).  How long all this lasts, I do not know. I see three nines. The third nine brings the peace. If everything is over, a part of the inhabitants have died, and the people will fear God anew. The laws, which bring death to the children, become invalid after the clearing. Then peace will be. A good time. I see three crowns flashing, and a gaunt old man will be our King.   Also the very old crown in the south comes to honours again." 

(NOTE: this could mean the old king will have three crowns and be direct ruler of three kingdoms.  This sounds in keeping with other prophecies the Great Monarch will take several crowns.  A very 'old crown' once more coming into honour could be the crown of the Holy Roman Empire which is currently being held in Austria.  However, some texts attributed to Irlmaier say one of the crowns will go to a 'white haired' king of Bavaria who will wear leather lederhosen, the other two to a Hungarian King and an Austrian- prophecies by other mystics state the Great Monarch will restore the Catholic monarchies of Europe).

“In the boot country (Italy) it goes haywire too, many clergymen are cruelly killed, few will be left by those who cannot flee, I see a red mass, and I see yellow faces in between and towards the south, but the Pope comes out of them and flees in the pilgrim's clothing over the water or to the water. There he takes up his seat for a short time, but returns when the calm is restored."

"The Pope, who had not to flee across the water for a long period of time, returns. When the flowers bloom on the meadows, (april spring?) he will return and mourn for his murdered brothers. " 

"After these events a long, lucky time comes. Those, who will experience it, will be very happy and can praise themselves lucky. But the people have to begin there, where their grandfathers began."


The 'Happy Times' -

In 1949 Irlamier is said to have predicted that the temperatures in the happy times would be warmer, particualry in the south of Bavaria, it would be like Italy.  They would be able to make wine and harvest figs in the Oberland, also other exotic fruits, and even have two harvests.  (Source: www.merkur. de),
