As we approach the year 2000, most people tend to wonder just what will happen to us and to our planet earth. Will we see a planetary catastrophe, Armageddon, the last judgement or will we enter the Age of Aquarius and see peace guide the planets and love steer the stars? Will Christ (the Messiah) come again? Is this the end of the 5,000 year Kali Yuga, "the Age of Misery" described by Indian sages? Will the earths axis shift and rearrange the topography of the globe destroying our civilization in the process?
Many have prophesied the end of the world in or near the year 2000 A.D. Some of these dooms day prognosticators believe that the current problems of over population, famine, political instability, the nuclear threat, pollution, Aids, holes in the ozone layer, and global economic chaos are all imminent signs of earths destiny. The scientific community has also thrown its hat into the ring of doomsday forecasters. They warn us of the possibility of catastrophic geological events to come, drastically altering the face of the globe and destroying civilization in the process. The following article examines of a few of the millennium prophecies. One should be careful and guard against the acceptance of any propaganda without sufficient evidence or scientific proof.
What is millennium prophesy?
Millennium prophecy is simply the foretelling of events to transpire at the end of a thousand-year period. Prophesy clearly implies that there is something or someone - the gods - that have knowledge of the future (Isa. 46:9-10) and have set up prophesying as a means whereby mankind can seek the Spirit for answers. Millennium prophecy is more commonly associated with the period mentioned in the Bible during which millenarians believe the Messiah will reign on earth with His saints (sons). It is also believed to be a period of perfection, peace, and happiness on earth to occur at some unspecific time in the future. It is taught in Christian theology, that Satan will be bound and Christ (Messiah) will reign on earth during this thousand year period (Rev. 20:1-5).
What is the origin of the millennium concept?
The early concepts of time were based on observations of nature (sun, moon, stars, seasons, and behavior of animals). In early times it was essential for survival to know when the winter cold would come, when fruits and berries would ripen, when animals would migrate and when the spring thaws would come. The regular seasons and cycles of nature were an integral part of tribal knowledge.
The desire to foresee what will happen tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year is characteristic of human behavior, which can be explained in part as a survival mechanism in the physical realm. On the other hand, prophetic revelations are the means by which Spirit leads humanity, either consciously or unconsciously.
The development of astronomy in Babylon, Chaldea, and Egypt provided a more accurate means of predicting the future. They projected astronomical tables far ahead and control over this information provided priests with powerful leverage over kings and society at large. This forecasting of future events through astrological mythologies associated with the celestial deities persisted through the Middle Ages and even to this day. Each year millions of dollars are spent by individuals turning to astrology books (perhaps at the failure of Christianity) to find answers concerning future events.
What are some early Christian millennium concepts?
During the early centuries of Christianity a true millennial feeling came into being. Interpretations of Rev. 20: 4-6 authorized the belief that after His second coming, Christ (the Messiah) would establish a Messianic Kingdom on earth, over which He would reign for 1,000 years. It stated that the inhabitants of that kingdom would be Christian martyrs, resurrected 1,000 years before the general resurrection. The early Christians saw themselves as being martyrs and therefore identified with these citizens and expected the Second Coming in their lifetime. Early Christians also believed the wicked would be judged and condemned to hell at the beginning of the 1,000 year millennial reign of Christ (the Messiah).
In 971 A.D. a lease was made for 29 years to a flurry of church buildings, donations were presented to church authorities, and an influx of conversions occurred in vain anticipation of the Second Coming of Jesus (Yahshua) at the approaching millennium. It seems millenarianism was big business then as well as now. There were many apocalyptic books written in the years after Christ (the Messiah). A colossal number of doomsday prognostications emanated from the orthodox New Testament by the early church fathers.
The "Apocalypse of Thomas" describes floods, famines, and pestilence. Upon completion of these catastrophes Thomas said the elect would be united with Christ (the Messiah) in eternal rest. "The Apocalypse of the Virgin," "The Revelation of Stephen," "The Apocalypse of Peter," and "The Apocalypse of Paul," as well as many others, published from one to three centuries after Johns book of Revelations, all foretold of similar natural catastrophes as the "Apocalypse of Thomas" and all were based on an erroneous interpretation of the book of Revelations.
Can you predict the end with Biblical numerology?
Some early Christian sects used the numerology in the book of Revelations to prophesy the end. For some time 666 A.D. was a predicted date of the Apocalypse. Some safely predicted the end well beyond their life span based on the numbers in Chronicles 21. By the 4th Century A.D. due to so many failed forecasts, church officials outlawed astrology. Though St. Augustine had a belief in astrology as a young man, he began to believe that the planets had no control over a persons destiny. He therefore, condemned astrology and prophecy in support of the concept of God being the supreme authority and director of the affairs of the future. In his book, The City of God, Augustine stated that the book of Revelations was to be understood as a spiritual allegory, that the millennium was already realized within the church, and had started with the crucifixion. This resulted in all subsequent millennial statements being viewed as unorthodox, if not heretical. Some modified their doomsday prophecies in the year 1000 A.D. When the end didnt come, they changed the date to 1033 A.D., believing the new millennium had its beginning in the year of the crucifixion 33 A.D. The year 1,666 was a likely year of the Great Beast and the Apocalypse, being 1,000 + 666, and was the next target for the millennial devotees. The only newsworthy event to transpire in that year was the Great Fire of London, hardly the end of the world.
What are some modern Christian millennial concepts?
Christianity has interpreted the Messiahs millennial reign literally (Rev. 20: 7-9 and Matt. 24: 30-31). The general belief is that the Messiah will come back to the earth for a second time to personally take charge of the world and bind Satan for 1,000 years. At the end of this period, Satan will be loosed to cause an unsuccessful rebellion and then be permanently cast down to hell and eternal punishment with the other wicked.
A literal interpretation of the scriptures tends to focus attention away from the Spirit. A spiritual understanding of the scriptures is the proper perception of the fulfillment of prophecy in this present age of grace, a spiritual age wherein the Messiah is to be worshipped in Spirit and truth (John 4:24). Therefore Christianity has erred and missed the spiritual reality of millennium prophecy, which is the revelation of the Day Star (the light of knowledge and spiritual guidance) in the hearts and minds of mankind that began on the Day of Pentecost (Mal 4:2, Acts 2:1-4, 2 Pet. 1: 19-20).
What are the three (3) millennial theories?
Amillennialism does not advocate a literal 1,000-year period in this age because they believe we are currently in this period in the way of mystical and spiritual experiences. Their views began to take precedence when St. Augustine denounced the failures associated with the doomsday prognostications during his time in the 4th Century A.D.
Post-Millennialism is the belief that preaching Christianity over the final 1,000-year period in this age will clean up the earth, paving the way for the Messiahs physical return. This view began when Daniel Whitby promoted the interpretation in England in the 17th and 18th centuries and continues all over the world until this day.
Pre-Millennialism is the belief in the rapture, a concept based on a literal interpretation of I Thess. 4:17. They believe that when the Messiah returns to take the believers into heaven, a period of great tribulation will occur for seven years (Dan. 9:27). The pre-tribulationists believe at the end of the tribulation the Messiah returns to set up his 1,000-year reign. The Mid-tribulation pre-millennialists believe that the Messiah will return during the middle of Daniels seven-week tribulation. This is based on their interpretation of the midst of the week reference in Dan. 9:27. Finally, the post-tribulation pre-millennialists believe that they must also endure the tribulation and reject a separate appearance of the Messiah.
What is the Sabbath millennium?
During the last 1,000 years Christians have erroneously deduced the end of the world based on the Sabbath (Ex. 20:9-11). They surmised that since Yahweh said that Israel had to labor 6 days and on the 7th (Sabbath) day, rest, and since Elohim rested after the six days of creation (Gen. 2:2-4), then the world would end after six millenniums (6,000 years) on the Sabbath millennium. Many latter day fringe religions and cults, including The Institute of Divine Metaphysical Research, Inc., have made the same millennium prophecy and none of their predicted dates have come to pass.
The reality of the Sabbath is being in a spiritual state of rest and peace, as were Adam and Eve in the garden, which is the Most Holy Place according to the divine Tabernacle pattern.
Did psychics, seers and mystics forecast the millennium?
Nostradamus (1503-1566 AD), became one of the most notable seers in history. Between 1555-1557, forty-two excerpts were published from his book of prophecies called Les Prophecies. Scholars have concluded that 50% of his quatrains have not been successfully interpreted. Approximately 40% can be explained by his use of Biblical prophecy or rational explanation. About 30 prophecies are correct but have many inaccuracies when scholars interpretations of his prophecies are matched with historical events. Some of his prophecies included the rise and fall of Napoleon, Hitler, and JFK. His millennium prophecies noted the outbreak of World War III on July 4, 1999, "The Feast of the Eagle," with Russia and Iran launching nukes at NATO in Europe, blocking the Persian Gulf, lasting 30 years (1999-2028) with more than two-thirds of mankind killed. He prophesied Clintons downfall, the martyrdom of Pope John Paul II, great Apostasy and schisms in the Catholic Church, and many natural disasters for North America and Europe.
Because of the accuracy of his prophecies, Nostradamus should be taken seriously. It is obvious to many enlightened people that Nostradamus was able to receive divine revelations from a higher power.
Who was Edgar Cayce?
As a result of a learning impairment, Edgar Cayces (1877-1945) 6th sense was awakened. While struggling with the rudiments of spelling, a voice spoke to him and said "sleep now, and we will help you." When awakened, Cayce could recite every lesson in the book. He became known as the sleeping prophet, diagnosing illness, foretelling the future with astounding accuracy and receiving visions, which were immediately documented, concerning some of the most notable events of the 20th Century. The transcripts of thousands of sleep readings during the 1930s contain accurate dates and descriptions of the time and duration of World War II. Edgar Cayces psychic visions of coming earth changes were global in reach, monumental in scope, breathtaking in their implications, and phenomenal in that some of them preceded corroborating scientific discoveries by several decades.
Did the sleeping prophet see millenimum prophecy?
Some of Cayces millennium predictions yet to come to pass are: a shifting of the poles of the earth in the period between 1998 to 2001 (378-16, 826-8 & 3976-15), sinking of the "greater portion of Japan" into the sea (3976-15), changing of the upper portion of Europe "in the twinkling of an eye" (3976-15), disappearance of the main portion of New York City (1152-11), emptying of the Great Lakes into the Gulf of Mexico (1152-11), breaking up of the earth in the western portion of America (3976-15), upheavals in the Arctic and Antarctic that will cause volcanic eruptions in the Torrid areas (3976-15).
According to A. T. Mann in his book Millennium Prophesies, in 1936 Cayce stated that the earths terrestrial axis had begun to shift, a process which would activate the transition between world ages. The change would accelerate rapidly with catastrophic consequences. A well-known American geologist confirmed that this axis shift did indeed begin below the earths surface in 1936.
Cayce entered altered states of consciousness sixteen thousand times between 1901 until his death in 1945, that required him to leave the normal waking state wherein revelations can be received from Spirit. Cayce did obtain knowledge of unknowable events and information without conscious reasoning. Here again, the prophecies of Edgar Cayce should be taken seriously, if for no other reason than of the accuracy of his track record. If the event did not come to pass, it does not mean that Cayce did not see it in a trance. Rather the interpretation of what he saw could be in error. To the spiritually enlightened, it is obvious that Edgar Cayce was receiving revelations from Spirit. Whether or not he himself understood the true spiritual meaning of what he saw is another story.
Are there some Pyramid Prophecies?
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the greatest enigma and mystery mankind has ever seen. Standing 481 feet tall, made of thousands of limestone blocks, weighing up to 70 tons each, the Great Pyramid is an architectural feat that cannot be duplicated with todays technology.
The accepted archeological view of the Great Pyramid is that it was built around 2170 BC as the burial tomb of the Pharaoh Cheops. While no remains have ever been discovered within the kings chamber, some hieroglyphics found on a cartouche there do refer to Cheops. They were probably inscribed when Cheops appropriated the monument as his tomb. Others believe the pyramid is a 10,500-year-old relic of an advanced civilization, which was destroyed during the last pole shift. This civilization was just as much of a mystery to the Egyptians as it is to us today. Western esoteric schools have accepted the early Egyptians as survivors of this cataclysm, many of whom settled in Peru, Egypt, Mexico, and Central America. This could explain in part why there are similar pyramid structures in the Western Hemisphere all within a 30-degree zone above and beneath the equator. [For a more detailed analysis of the Pyramids structure, see Parts One and Two of Great Pyramid, May/June 1997 issue of the PLIM Report, Vol. 6 No. 3 and Vol. 6 No. 5]
The passages within the Great Pyramid, when deciphered to mean one inch represents one year, graphically illustrate an elaborate prophetic chronology intimately related to Biblical prophecy, Biblical dispensations, the beginning, end of World War I, and according to some, the end of the world in the year 2000 A.D. Although the Pyramid is not mentioned in the Bible, it is my opinion that Elohim had to design this structure because only He knows the future and him to whom He reveals it. (Isa. 46: 9-10). The fact that the pyramid is older than the scriptures and apparently outlines, to some extent, the Ages and Dispensations is in itself a testimony of the universal nature and revealing power of Spirit.
What are the geological sciences prophesying?
Scientific examinations of the earths geological history are being done to hopefully reveal not only what has happened to the earth and its civilizations in the past, but what will happen to our civilization and the earth in the future. Out of this scientific search into the earths geological machinations, two theories have emerged.
Uniformitarian Geology is the idea that changes in the earths geology, such as the formation of mountain ranges, canyons, rivers, oceans and even ice ages or glacial periods, occur slowly over long periods of time and in a uniform manner. This type of geology is generally accepted and for hundreds of years, sanctioned by the academic community. It is the geology taught in schools.
Catastrophistic Geology is the notion that geological changes of the earth, both external and internal, occur quickly and catastrophically, such as continents sinking into the sea, continentally dividing mountain ranges suddenly and violently appearing, and overnight ice ages destroying civilizations. Great controversy emerged over this idea during the 19th century. It was first enunciated by James Hutton of Scotland in 1795, and the Chevalier de Lamarck, the French naturalist, in 1800, but set forth in definitive form by the English geologist Charles Lyell in 1838 through his classic text Elements in Geology. Ironically, there is more scientific evidence to support catastrophism than uniformitarianism and as a result momentum has begun to shift in academic debates. Speaking of shifts, let us now examine the number one mechanism in this view of global geological catastrophicism; the pole shift.
What is the pole shift?
A pole shift is a sudden shifting of the earths (north and south) poles toward the equator due to the abrupt movement of the earths crust over the rest of the earths body. In reading this definition of a pole shift, the event may sound mild. But in reality, if this were to happen, as some have prophesied it will in the year 2000, it would be the ultimate disaster. Enormous tidal waves will roll across the continents as oceans become displaced from their basins. Hurricane winds of hundreds of miles per hour will scour the planet. Earthquakes greater than any ever measured will change the shape of continents. Volcanoes will pour out huge lava flows, along with poisonous gases and choking ash. Climates will change instantly, and the geography of the globe will be radically altered. If the shift is less than 180 degrees, the polar ice caps will melt rapidly; raising sea levels while new ice caps will begin to build. Large numbers of organisms, including the human race, will become extinct, with signs of their existence hidden under thick layers of sediment and debris or at the bottom of newly established seas.
Who are some pole shift proponents?
In a forward to a book called Earths Shifting Crust, by Charles Hapgood, some of Albert Einsteins comments were, "In a polar region there is continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole". The earths rotation acts on these unsymmetrical deposited masses and produce centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the earths crust over the rest of the earths body, thus displacing the Polar Regions toward the equator."
Did an engineer predict the end of the world?
Hugh Auchincloss Brown (1879-1975), an electrical engineer devoted more than 60 years of his life to the promulgation of the theory that the vast polar ice cap would tip the earth over in this century and wipe out civilization. As early as 1911, Mr. Brown became intrigued by reports that mammoths had been found frozen in the Arctic with buttercups still clenched between their teeth. This led him to conclude that every 8,000 years or so, the earths poles would shift, moving tropical regions to polar regions, and vice-versa.
Mr. Browns book, Cataclysm of the Earth, expanded on his theories. Published in 1967, it titillated many readers, but failed to raise a great deal of scientific concern, in spite of Einsteins endorsement in the forward of his book. His book also contained a statement, about an omen for the earths future; a wobble in the planets spin. Such a wobble is a scientific fact, which continues to challenge scientists seeking an explanation for it. He also recommended establishment of a worldwide global stabilization organization, and recommended that it devote 10 million dollars to study how effectively set off atomic blasts in the Antarctic could possibly break up the ice there and save the world from certain disaster. For years he bombarded Congress, government leaders and scientists with written proof of his theories. The first part of Cataclysms of the Earth is entitled "Evidence of Careening of the Globe." While there is not enough time to cite or summarize the evidence here, it is interesting to note some of the most dramatic examples.
What did Dr. Brown use to prove his theory?
Mammoths, rhinoceros and other animals were discovered in Arctic regions where they could not possibly survive under present climatic conditions.
The story of Noah has its Greek counterpart in the myth of Delucalion. Likewise, the ancient Hindu, Chaldean, and Chinese records tell of a great deluge slightly more than 5,000 years ago.
Fossil trees and other vegetation are found in the sea and underground. Obviously they didnt grow there. Others are found in Siberian permafrost - one with fruit and leaves still on it.
Fossil jellyfish have been found entombed in mud. They couldnt have been preserved except by quick freeze after a global tumble. This flash freezing of the sand and jellyfish at the careening of the globe is the simplest scientific explanation to this age-old riddle of how soft jellyfish could become hard rock. The same explanation applies to fossil imprints of even more evanescent or easily vanishing events - raindrop splashes and small seabird footprints - which surely should have been washed away by further rain or the next high tide.
Do pole shifts occur every 7,000 years?
For seven years he gathered evidence that produced proof of an unknown civilization more advanced scientifically than Europe in the 16th Century that existed long before ancient Egypt. Browns interpretation of the evidence led him to conclude that the planet has a naturally recurring cycle, about seven thousand years in duration, that begins and ends in cataclysm as the weight of the polar ice caps tumbles the globe about 80 degrees. In working out the details of previous historical epochs, he developed a chart showing correlations of the epochs he identified with epochs identified in other geological systems.
Hugh Auchincloss Brown was not a prophet of doom. He was an engineer, and as such, he saw the south polar ice mass problem through the eyes of an engineer. He dealt strictly with what he could prove scientifically. The aforementioned evidence he studied, combined with core samples taken from the Ross Sea floor in 1949 by the Byrd Antarctic Expedition and the Piri Reis map as pointed out by Professor Charles Hapgood, are compelling proof that there has been and will be a careening of the globe. We can certainly say that the catastrophists theories are gaining momentum.
Will the earth or just the crust shift?
Professor Charles H. Hapgood also wrote the Path of the Pole and Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. His careening globe ideas were somewhat different than Hugh A. Browns. He believed, instead of the entire globe shifting, only the earths crust would move or shift, causing the same cataclysms Brown described. Einstein died a few weeks after writing the foreword to Hapgoods book, Earths Shifting Crust, leaving many unopened letters on his desk, including these words from Professor Hapgood:
"To understand what is involved in the idea of a movement or displacement of the entire crust of the earth, certain facts about the earth must be understood. The crust is very thin and is made of comparatively rigid, crystalline rock, but it is fractured in many places and does not have great strength Immediately under the crust is a layer that is thought to be extremely weak because it is, presumably, too hot to crystallize. Moreover, pressure at that depth renders rock extremely plastic, so that it will yield easily to pressures. Thus the crust will move as a single unit".
Hapgood also questions and doubts that the weight of the ice caps alone will be and has been the cause or trigger mechanism for a polar shift. In his book, the Path of the Pole, he writes:
"Advancing knowledge of conditions of the earths crust now suggests that forces responsible for shifts of the crust lie at some depth within the earth rather than on its surface".
Did an ancient civilization live at the North Pole?
In 1966, eight years after Hapgood published Earths Shifting Crust, he wrote the book, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings: Evidence of Advanced Civilizations In The Ice Ages. For seven years he gathered evidence that produced proof of an unknown civilization more advanced scientifically than Europe in the 16th Century that existed long before ancient Egypt. He discovered that some ancient and unknown empire employed mapmakers who mapped all the continents on earth around 6,000 years ago. Admiral Piri Reis used one of these maps in 1513 - as the original source map, which showed the continent of Antarctica before it was covered with ice. This defies the technology of 16th Century Europe, and baffles modern scrutiny. There was no way for a 16th Century explorer to determine the exact topography of Antarctica beneath 2 miles of ice. Therefore, the Piri Reis Map had to be copied from some map compiled in remote antiquity. The original source maps had to be drawn before the last pole shift when there was no ice covering Antarctica. The original mapmakers would have to have had a highly advanced knowledge of navigation, shipbuilding, oceanography, meteorology, astronomy, and cartography in order to accomplish mapping the entire globe. It is a scientific fact that Antarctica has been covered with ice for the past 6,000 years. This means that the source maps of the Piri Reis Map are the accomplishment of a highly advanced, pre-Adamic world. Remember, Yahweh told Adam in the beginning of this creation (meaning this week of ages) to multiply and "re-plenish" the earth (Gen. 1:28). The word "re-plenish" could imply that the earth had been populated at one time before Eden.
Was the flood the result of a pole shift?
If the last pole shift was the cause of the great flood, spoken of in the Bible (Gen. 7:11-24), and in virtually every culture around the world, then we can at least say that the source maps are Ante-Diluvian and the cartographers civilization was destroyed in that cataclysm. Remember also, Yahweh told Noah to multiply and replenish the Earth after it was destroyed in the flood. Either way, the original source maps are technological relics of a lost world. Could this happen again? The Bible concurs. It says that the earth will be destroyed again (2 Peter 3:8-10, 1 Thess. 5:1-9).
Are scientists predicting the end?
There have been many mystic, psychic, and religious prophecies of the worlds destruction coming at the end of this millennium. But there are some members of the scientific and academic community who forecast the day, month, and year of the cataclysmic demise of our civilization and the earth. The most prominent of these voices is Richard W. Noone.
Does anyone know the day and hour of the end?
Dr. Noone is the author of the book 5/5/2000. He called the book by that title because he discovered a rare planetary alignment on 5/5/2000. After talking with Atlanta astronomer James E. Summers in September of 1992, Noone was able to provide key missing elements needed to complete twenty years of research. Summers was able to compute that the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Earth and the Moon would arrive at a rare perfect alignment on the night of 5/5/2000. Dr. Noone theorizes that the gravitational pull on the earth, produced by the alignment of these planets, will be the trigger mechanism necessary to cause the earths poles to shift and thereby end civilization in the process.
Dr. Noone has also illustrated more astonishing evidence pointing to a demise of our civilization, an increasing number of volcanic eruptions, and freakish climate changes. Bits of vanished civilizations uncovered evidence of entire forests and their eco-systems fossilized instantly. Animals flash-frozen and preserved for thousands of years are all proof of the last pole shift. They present evidence of a massive solar storm due in January 2000, that is expected to crash into the earths magnetic field, creating more instability for the 3 mile high ice mass at the South Pole.
Does the Pyramid provide a date for the end?
A painstaking investigation into the lost technology of the sophisticated builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza and the mathematical message of warning built into the Pyramid by survivors of a similar catastrophe thousands of years ago, also warns of the destruction of the earth on May 5, 2000. Dr. Noone feels this is perhaps the greatest mystery of this geodetic and astronomic wonder. Richard Noone is perhaps the most public voice in the world today, heralding warnings of a pole shift. He has even been bold enough to make a prediction of a date, 5/5/2000. He has been featured on Oprah, Donahue, CNN, Sightings, and the top-rated TV show Millennium. He also received the Georgia Grand Masters Award for his discovery of Masonic influence in Ancient Egypt.
Now we should have a wider understanding of millennium prophecy. These pages should challenge all of our previous conceptions of geological changes in the earth and how they are used by the Creator to help frame the ages. We should remember that Yahweh told Adam to multiply and REPLENISH the earth. By definition, replenish means to make full again. This means that there had to be another series of ages before this series of ages, which was destroyed by the hand of Elohim.
Also, Moses account of the Creation in Genesis is not an explanation of a new world brought into existence from nothing, but the reformation of a previous existing world. This means that the word creation, in this context, simply means a week of ages. The evidence in this article should also lead one to conclude that Yahweh does not have to dematerialize the physical realm to destroy it. It was not done that way at the end of the Ante-diluvian age, with Noah and the flood and since Yahweh declared the end from the beginning, it would mean that Yahweh does not have to dematerialize the creation in order to destroy it again.
The spiritual reality of a geological event, like a pole shift, destroying the earth and its civilization is simple, if one has eyes to see and ears to hear. These events reflect the REFORMATION and the RENEWING of the mind (Rom. 12:2). Remember at the transgression of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the garden was transformed from a fruitful place to a place only yielding thorns and thistles, to reflect the transformation within Adams mind, from spiritual life to spiritual death.
Also in the parable of the sower, Yahshua correlated the earth with a mans mind. Therefore what happens within the earth, geologically, reflects what happens within the mind, theologically or spiritually.
Throughout the time of the prophets, the desecration of the temples and the contents therein, like the desecration of the earth and the civilizations therein by geological catastrophes, both reflect the desecration and reformation of a mans mind and the contents therein, wiping out negative attributes and replacing them with the fruits of the Spirit. A new mind, fresh and innocent, reflected by a new earth, fresh, innocent and cleansed of all contamination.
Can these geological catastrophic events be predicted? As of today, there is no means of determining "exactly" when volcanoes will erupt, earthquakes will strike, an asteroid will hit the earth, the earths poles will shift, or any other event capable of bringing about the end of the world. Yahshua said, no man knows the day or the hour (Matt. 24:36), but he did tell us we would see signs and symptoms.
As a result of no one knowing for sure, multi-million dollar industries have sprung up which merchandize millennium prophecies. Movies like "Deep Impact," "Armageddon," and the "X-Files" are all big box office, and all about doomsday prophetic events. There are thousands of TV documentaries, books, and tapes on millennium prophecies. Survivalist mail-order stores have sprung up, while dooms day cults continue with their prognostications.
What we do know is that geologically catastrophic extinction level events have happened before and they will happen again. It is only through an intimate relationship with Spirit within the consciousness of man that we can have peace amidst confusion.
May Yahshua lead you, bless you, and keep you!
