Simon is Golding's Christ figure. This means that he displays Christlike traits including prophethic statements like the one above. Simon himself doesn't know how and why he knows things: he simply just does. It is as if Simon knows an apocalypse of sorts is coming where the boys will destroy each other, including himself, but that Ralph will somehow survive.
