Columba, also known as Columcille, was an Irish prophet who Nostradamus studied. Like Nostradamus and all other prophets, Columcille was rejected by the established clergy and driven out of Kells. This is when he went to the Island of Iona where he founded a monastery. Like Moses, Columba turned his back upon wealth, rank and power, and gave himself to God. Before he was known as Columba, Columcille was born a prince, named Crimthann; the nephew of two Celtic high kings, Fergus of Scotland and Muircheartach of Ireland. Columba’s dad, Feidlimid, was chieftain of the territory of Tir-Conaill. His mother was of royal ancestry in Leinster, and was daughter of a Munster chief, of the line of Cathair Mor. As closely as he was able, Columba followed the true teaching of Christ, that was taught by the Culdees, Jesus’ own Disciples, who fled to the isles with Joseph of Arimathaea and his niece Mary, Jesus’ human mom, in order to establish a Christian community and escape Roman pagan persecution for following “The Way”. Jesus had commanded His disciples to go to the lost sheep (tribes) of the House of Israel, some of which were in the “Isles afar off”, especially the tribes of Ephraim and Dan.
Columba moved to Kells probably to be near the grave-mound, stone cairn of the great Ith Cian, king of Spain, hoping to be inspired by someone he admired. He probably used the stones from the cairn to build his house, oratory, entirely made of stone. Ith Cian was the Israelite king who had adopted Hebrew queen Teia Tephi, queen of Israel, in her travels from Jerusalem to Ireland with Jeremiah. She married the Irish high king and later became known as Britannia, where they ruled the island under God’s Law. The accounts of her life are in her autobiography, the Book of Tephi. She was also of interest to Columba. Ith Cian was killed in Ireland when trying to return back to Spain to gather his men to help fight alongside Tephi and king Eochaidh. He was buried in Kells, which is named after him, as Kells is Cian aneas Mor, which means “Great Cian from the South”.
Columba wrote in his prophecy entitled, “SENANUS (ra chan – riot)”
Impart to me (Columba), O Senanus (Cian aneas Mor),
Information concerning the latter ages of the world;
What shall be the condition of the race of people,
Who will not observe rectitude in their judgments.
The King (Christ) son of Saxon will come
To join them across the sea;
He will part with the sovereignty
Of the Gall in the country whence he will come.
The Galls and the Gaels of Ireland,
Will unite in one confederation;
Against the forces of the Saxons,
Their confederacy cannot be dissolved.
The King (Christ) son of Saxon (Isaac’s sons) will come
At the head of his forces;
In consequence of the protection he will extend to them,
Ireland shall be freed from her fears.
One monarch (Christ) will rule in Ireland,
Over the Galls and the pure Gaels;
From the reign of that Man,
The people shall suffer no destitution.
Describing today’s world, Columba also prophesied:
The time will come when many will regret the days they have lived to see.
Men of literature will be neglected.
Falsehood and deceit will prevail.
Chapels and shrines will be plundered.
Sacred things will become the prey of thieves.
Learning will be oppressed and hence they will be brought low.
The powerful will oppress the poor with false laws and perverted judgement, and the aged and infirm will regret the time they have lived to see.
Strife and war will rage in every family.
Good neighbourhood will disappear and many will be treated with disrespect.
The trees shall not bear fruit.
There will be cold and hunger, malice, hatred and bad weather, and only the leaves on the trees will show the difference between summer and winter.
Men and women will fly in the air without wings, and will travel from one country to another under the ground (i.e. Channel Tunnel).
Pounds will be filled with cattle and jails with men.
Milk over the country will be churned in one churn.
Diseases will abound and remedies will fail.
Every race of mankind will become more wicked and all classes will be addicted to robbery.
Such is the description of people who will live in the ages to come.
Maidens will be unblushing and marriages without witnesses.
Columba was a well-spoken and charismatic leader, and the most famous Irish monk. He was regarded as a visionary, capable of astonishing predictions. He was a warm-hearted authoritarian figure who was kind, and who hated injustice. Of course, his high character and adherence to the correct teachings of Jesus eventually made him a target of the Roman church, which convinced the Irish to censure him. That’s when he left for the Island of Iona. But this was probably God’s Plan, as both Columcille and Iona (Jonah) mean “Dove”. And it was on Iona that his uncle Fergus, king of Scotland, had built a church and placed therein the Stone of Destiny, Jacob’s Pillar Stone. Fergus was involved in the second overturn of the stone (Ezekiel 21:26-27), taking the stone, or Throne of David, from Tara, Ireland, to Scotland so that he could be crowned and recognized as king there. Fergus wasn’t able to be king in Ireland, as it was his brother’s right, thus he went to Scotland.
In Iona, Columba became the custodian of the Stone of Destiny, the true Lia Fail; and where he started the Book of Kells, a book of the Gospel of Christ. He kept it to only the first four Gospels, as the church was already corrupting Christ’s message. And Columba slept with his head on the Stone of Destiny just as Jacob had done, and like Jacob received visions that were divinely inspired. This famous book was once stolen in 1007 A.D., but soon found, missing its gold cover and some of the pages of the Gospel of John. In 1654, the Governor of Kells sent it to Dublin for safety from Oliver Cromwell’s cavalry; and it was presented to Trinity College Dublin in 1661, where it’s been ever since. It’s 678 leather pages, and all but two are illustrated using natural dyes that have not faded in over 1000 years. Kells maintains only a replica of the book, much to the town’s folk’s dismay.
The pages missing describe Peter’s denial of Christ with more accuracy than the church’s authorized version. The Romans say that Peter founded the Catholic church and was its first pope. That’s interesting because Peter never went to Rome; however the sorcerer, Simon Pater (spelled with an “a”), did. Illusions. Illusions. Pater is mentioned in the Book of Acts. This is probably why Christ told Simon Peter not to go to Rome. It was Simon Pater who incorporated the teachings of Babylon into the Gospel and corrupted the teachings, by forming a well-organized religion of priests worshipping on Sunday, honoring their sun-gods and sun festivals of Winter’s Yuletide and Spring’s Ishtar, a goddess of sex and fertility, known today as Easter.
Columba prophesied of the church’s greed:
Senanus (Cian aneas – Kells)-
The clergy of the holy church,
Will be addicted to pride and injustice;
The advantages they will aim at,
Shall be the possession of worldly substance.
Between the 5th and 12th centuries, the church became very wealthy; and Kells became known as the “Splendour of Ireland”. It’s important to note that although Columba was a monk, he was not a priest. Back then, learning in the monastic schools was based on the Scriptures, and not on church doctrine and rituals. Columba had been ordained as a minister of the Celtic Christian church, whilst he was in Ireland. And on Iona he became a Culdee, not a priest. Culdee (Cul Di/ Culdich) means “Servant of the Lord” or “Certain Strangers” (the strangers were the true disciples who fled to the isles). They followed Jesus’ command “to not become priests” (Matthew 23:8). Priests like to live lavishly, but the Culdee monks value prayer, study and labor work (wax on, wax off).
Because the Roman church knew the Culdees by reputation, they also knew these servants had a secret book written by Apostle John, which was probably in the Book of Kells or John’s 3rd Book of Revelation. Was this why those pages of the Gospel of John went missing in the Book of Kells? Was the theft an “inside job” because they were trying to protect the pagan Roman church? What’s missing has been put back into the King of kings’ Bible. In fact, the removed books and scriptures (some of which are very incriminating against the church) have been put back into the King of kings’ Bible. Jesus purposely interrogated Peter back then to prove a point today. The hidden scriptures and the point Jesus wanted to make are described in more detail on JAH’s Columba of Iona and Book of Kells pages, sourced below.
