St. Patrick and the End-Time Flood of Ireland


A well-known prophecy of a nation being destroyed by tidal waves at the end-time can be found in one of the earliest biographies of St. Patrick:

These are the three prayers of Patrick, as they were delivered to us by the Hibernians, entreating that all should be received on the day of judgment, if we should repent even in the last days of our life.
That he should not be shut up in hell. That barbarian nations should never have the rule over us. That no one shall conquer us, that is the Scots, before seven years previous to the day of judgment, because seven years before the judgment we shall be destroyed in the sea, this is the third.

 
This prophecy can be traced back to original documents dating from the 7th century (Tirechan's untitled memoirs of St. Patrick), which are based on the The Book of Ultan - an earlier now lost source written by a disciple of Patrick himself (the full text of Tierchan's work can be found online here). A reader has noted that the prayer that "no barbarian nations" should ever have rule over Ireland, has so far proved true in the fact that it has only ever been conquered by Christian nations. We should also note that the word "Scots" here refers to the Irish people rather than the present sense of the term. The Irish were referred to as Scoti in Latin, and Irish rule over Northern Britain during the Dark Ages gradually saw the term being transferred to that country.
This prediction of the end-time flood of Ireland is often associated with another prophecy attributed to St. Colmcille (who is also known by his Latin name St. Columba).

 
I concede a favour to them without exception,
and St Patrick also did concede the same;
that seven years before the last day,
the sea shall submerge Eirin by one inundation

The above prophecy is believed to be taken from a 9th century document titled Colum Cille cecinit, but so far the earliest source it can be traced back to is O'Kearney, N. The Prophecies of Ss. Columbkille, Maeltamlacht, Ultan, Seadhna, Coireall, Bearcan, Malachy, &tc (Dublin: John O’Daly, 1856) – a book which is known to contain many spurious prophecies formulated as rhetoric for the 1798 Irish rebellion. It is possible that this quatrain is based on an earlier source or tradition, such as the Leabhar Breac, but currently its origins remains untraceable. It is unlikely that the original prophecy was made by St. Colmcille, but instead may have developed from the earlier, almost certainly authentic literature concerning the life of St. Patrick.
The prophecy of Ireland being destroyed by end-time floods is intimately related to the other material in Public and private revelation which tells of an eschatological inundation, and seems to be inextricably linked to the threat posed by the collapse of the volcano Cumbre Vieja into the Atlantic ocean (see the earlier post Mega-tsunami, where I show how this event is connected with the "great mounatin, burning with fire" being thrown into the sea in Rev 8:8, as well as several other biblical passages).
As we can see from the diagram below, Ireland is one of the countries that would be most affected be a mega-tsunami generated by the collapse of the volcano Cumbre Vieja in the Canary Islands.





This would lead us to ask why Ireland seems to be the sole focus of the prophecy of St. Patrick? Why would when there are so many other countries in even greater risk from this catastrophe. One explanation may be found in the fact that this prediction was made almost one thousand years before the discovery of America by the Europeans. The other countries which will be affected by this disaster would simply have been unknown to the saint.

According to Christian prophetic tradition, the tribulation period at the end-time (which includes the reign of the Antichrist) will last for a total of seven years. The fact that the prophecy of St. Patrick foretells that Ireland would be destroyed by the sea seven years before the last day in order to spare the Irish from the reign of the Antichrist therefore suggests that the rule of this end-time tyrant will only take place after the catastrophic flooding caused by the collapse of the volcano Cumbre Vieja into the sea.

Hi,
Just found your Blog on the St Patrick Prophecy of a great wavedestroying Ireland.

One interpretation of "No Barbaian Nation" that would fit with what happened is that, when the Normans invaded, they were Christian. The AntiChrist will obviously be a barbarian an the prophecy probably means that, we will not be ruled by him...

God Bless

God did not spare Sodom and Gomorrah and will not be mocked forever by ANY nation on earth. To whom much has been given(God's blessings) much is expected(in return to God). Ireland is much blessed by God and so is the United States still waiting a very important Supreme Court decision which will determine a nation's direction and Divine Justice in these sinfully wicked times of spiritual blindness and unrepentance.

There is also the possibility of an asteroid impact causing a mega-tsunami. Efrain Rodriguez was shown by the Lord that such an event would take place just north of Puerto Rico, and it would destroy the coastal cities of North America, down to South America, and across to Europe as well. Here's their Face Book page.

What's even more creepy is that the prophecy states that the anti christ will reign or barbarian will not get to rule Ireland. At the time of St. Patrick the greatest barbarian hord were In Germania i.e. Germany or Germans. Silly as it may sound Trumps father was German. Also St. colmcille prophesied that when the Black popes term comes to an end it will be the last pope. At the time of St. colmcille the greatest power on earth and the leader of the western world was the pope. As we know the greatest power in the present day is classed as America and the leader of the western world is classed as president of the US. With Obamas term ended and the (Barberian) Trump/anti Christ in power could this spell the end or will it prove to be all hocum ???
