How Stalin Secretly Ignited the Fuse to World War II

David Martin | The Daily Knight

In 1917, the year of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the Blessed Virgin made a series of appearances in Fatima, Portugal, in which she warned of the spread of Communism that would follow if Russia wasn’t consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart. Our Lady’s primary objective for coming to Fatima was to halt the spread of Communism seeing it was to wreak havoc throughout the twentieth century and beyond.

The apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima took place toward the end of the First World War, from May to October 1917. During the apparitions of July 13, 1917, she told the child seers Lucy, Jacinta, and Francisco:

"The war is going to end, but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the reign of Pius XI (name of the future pope). When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its sins, by means of war, famine, and persecutions against the Church and of the Holy Father.”

Prophecy of “Unknown Light” Fulfilled

The "unknown light" prophesied by Our Lady in 1917 occurred on the night of January 25-26, 1938. The sky became a brilliant blood-red, likened to the blaze of a gigantic fire filling the evening sky, and was seen across Europe and in parts of North America and North Africa. The blood-red sky lasted for several hours with the same vivid intensity. The event was reported in all the major newspapers throughout the world.

Within two months of this great sign, on March 12, 1938, Hitler’s armies invaded Austria, fulfilling Our Lady’s prophecy of a “worse” war that would begin in the reign of Pius XI. Even so, the invasion of Austria in itself did not constitute World War II but was an initial thread leading into this. It would take something more decisive to bring about a state of world war, as we will see shortly.

What is interesting is that the Marxist-backed international bankers, especially the Rothschilds, funded Hitler’s Third Reich, the same who funded the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. Marx who descended from Talmudic rabbis was employed by the Rothschilds and Hitler was the grandson of Lionel Nathan Rothschild.

“Great Sign” Coincided with Historic Interview

What is even more astounding and telling is that the providential “great sign” of January 25, 1938, directly coincided with an event in Russia that ignited the fuse to World War II. For on that ominous night of January 25-26, 1938, a fateful interview took place between Stalin's chief interrogator Gavril Kusmin, and Christian Rakovsky, a Bolshevik and member of the Illuminati who had competed with Stalin for leadership in the Soviet Union. Rakovsky was facing execution for plotting to overthrow Stalin so to appease him Rakovsky laid out a plan with Kusmin that he knew Stalin would like.

In this interview with Kusmin, Rakovsky proposed that Stalin make a 1 pact with Hitler to invade Poland in 1939 with the objective of inciting the European states to attack Germany and thus destabilize Europe so that it would open the way for Russia to invade Europe more easily.

Communism, Not Nazism, was Behind WWII

Naturally, Stalin had no intention joining forces with Hitler but was simply using him as a useful idiot, knowing he would impulsively carry out the assignment himself, and while things didn't pan out the way Stalin and Rakovsky had hoped, their secret plot is what gave birth to World War II.

And so while the invasion of Poland in September 1939 is seen as the official start of World War II, the blueprint for this war was drawn up twenty months earlier 2 just when the mysterious red lights were flashing across the world to the awe of millions. This was the “great sign” that signaled the beginning of ‘another war,’ while the blazing red glow in the heavens appeared to have been a providential sign that this war was being generated through the influence of Communism.

The moral of the story is that Communism, and not Nazism, was the foundation of World War II, since the Second World War did not come about through Hitler’s own initiative but was grounded in a Marxist-internationalist plan to overtake Europe.

From this we might infer that Communism will have a major hand in bringing on World War III. Yea, it’s already bringing it on as Putin and the globalists work feverishly to drag the U.S. and Europe into a major war. For the Russian invasion of Ukraine was set as a trap to incite western retaliation so that Russia could then have an excuse to nuke any country that stands in his way.

Without an outpouring of penance and prayer we seemingly are approaching that time prophesied by Our Lady at Fatima when “various nations will be annihilated.”

God help us.

1. That is, a pseudo pact they weren't intending to keep. The plan was to trick Hitler into executing this himself.

2. During the reign of Pius XI, fulfilling Our Lady’s prediction that another war would begin in his reign.
