An extraordinary man whom I met back in the 1990’s, transitioned on July 4, 2014. Dr. Ernesto Moshe Montgomery granted me an interview back in the early 1990’s. He stayed in contact with me now and then over the years. He saw something about me and future gifts promised, so asked I send him my photo which he put on his altar saying prayers for me. I was grateful he thought enough to do so.
Jewish by religion and born in Kingston, Jamaica, on October 2, 1925, Ernesto Montgomery was the spiritual leader of Beta Israel African-American Jewish Temple in Los Angeles. An exceptional psychic by nature with great gifts of prognostication, Dr. Montgomery told me about 9/11 years before it happened. He did not call it 9/11 but merely said he saw an early morning terrorist attack on or near the East River in NYC. It would come suddenly without warning. At the time, it sounded so outlandish, I did not elaborate on it in my article about him. He wanted me to warn the UN but at the time I thought no one would believe me, I could hardly fathom such an attack myself. But as we all know, his prediction came to pass.
He sent me proof of his prediction concerning the death of Princess Di, wherein he warned the Royal Family he saw her death. According to the date on the letter it was a few years before Di’s death and before she left Prince Charles. He showed me the Royal letterhead wherein the Queen Mother thanked him and responded to his warning. Promising him that they would not allow the Princess to be in Paris the month and year he saw her death. However, fate had changed Di’s circumstances and she was no longer married to Charles at the time of her death. Thus was in Paris the month and year Dr. Montgomery predicted she would die in a Paris tunnel.
Ernesto Montgomery was gifted as a child in his native land of Jamaica and became quite well known for his predictions. So much so, he caught the attention of British authorities who approached him at age 16, asking Ernesto to join a secret group of MI-5 psychics using their psychic abilities to spy during WW2. In order to protect their identity Montgomery and the other psychics, (one who later became a very famous author), used code names. Years later, a book was written about Montgomery entitled “Psychic Spy” which accounts his service to Winston Churchhill, Eisenhower, et.al., during WW2. After the war, then Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill presented Montgomery with the British Star, campaign, war and defense medals presented for meritorious army services to the Allied Forces. Ernesto Montgomery’s predictions were essential to D Day and for that reason the Royal Family respected him and knew of his service, so told him they would take his warning about Di seriously.
He mentioned to me at one point that actress Shirley MacLaine had taken an interest in him after learning about his meta physic ministry, healing practices, clairvoyant gifts and astounding predictions.
Given some of the things he told me and were written about him in local and national newspapers, I can only say he was a very gifted man. He was humble and kind. He was quite elderly when I first interviewed him and when I called him years later to do another interview, although his spirit was willing, it became clear his advancing age would not allow for a second interview.
A humanitarian at heart, Montgomery was a graduate of the University of Judaism/Department of Continuing Education in Los Angeles, He was a retired Jamaican police commander who went on to serve in the Los Angeles Police Reserve Corps and on the Newton Street Division Clergy Council of the Los Angeles Police Department.
It seems he slipped from the world in a very quiet fashion, no fanfare or articles acclaiming his unusual powers. Perhaps that is the way he would have wanted it. But when the world has such an unusual man among us, I must at least take this moment to thank him for the gifts he shared with the world. He told me he faced racism and skepticism sometimes. However, his faith in the Divine and the guides and angels that opened his eyes to see, were all he needed to navigate this world. He had a powerful life more extraordinary than most men. He was not rich nor did he use his gifts to become rich or wield power. Perhaps that is what made Montgomery and his psychic gifts so exceptional.
Farewell to Dr. Montgomery. I thank him for allowing me the privilege of knowing him and meeting someone of his psychic abilities and great and humble spirit. I know there were those he left behind who loved him and will miss him. I wish blessings to his soul as Dr Montgomery continues onward in his magnificent spiritual journey.
