You Never Know Where They’ll Show Up

This is the Heilige Lanze or Holy Lance which sits in a museum in Austria. Hitler is said to have invaded Austria prior to the beginning of World War II in order to obtain this legendary relic, often referred to as the Spear of Destiny, which he believed would allow him to rule the world. Patton is said to have recaptured the lance and five days later Hitler committed suicide.

    Spent a lot of time in the 90’s in Castle Wolfenstein fighting for this.

    The Spear of Longius. Wow.

    This spear, according to legend, is said to have been thrust into the body of Jesus Christ and fully covered in his blood, by the Roman soldier (Centurion?) Longius.

    It’s been rumored that a lot of people have possessed it, or have sought to possess it. Hitler, as mentioned, Napolean being another. I heard a rumor that Joesph Stalin wanted to destroy it, but I was never able to verify it, so left it as a rumor.

    Good to see this story on here. I really appreciate it.

      He’s got one. He always forgets it. But he never leaves home without his picture of one.

    If I’m not mistaken, within the spear’s blade, and secured to the spear by gold threading, is one of the nails used to nail Jesus on the cross. I think there’s also a small piece of the wooden crucifix under under the gold thread, but I’m not real sure about that part. Great photo of the Spear of Longinus.

    • Chuck says:

      The spear is actually dated to the 7th century AD, but it does contain a Roman crucifiction nail that is dated to the correct period. I believe it’s silver thread. It’s a very impressive piece in person especially.

    I thought Hitler died in South America in the 60s

    • Reverend says:

      His is also mentioned as having died in the fifties during the “Occult Wars,” contrary to popular belief.

    Hitler didn’t invade Austria. It calls Anschluss. Hitler was born in Austria and most top nazis also…
