There are many that doubt the existence of an eternal creator. Yet there are experiences, such as predictive visions or dreams of the future, called prophecy that prove unequivocally the existence of an Eternal Creator and that certain events are predestined.
Israels seers documented these paranormal experiences in the Bible. They are absolutely necessary for ones growth and spiritual development.
What many modern Christian scholars, ministers and Bible students do not understand is that the Holy Spirit continues giving mankind all types of prophecies about future events regardless of their religious affiliation. Elohim is not a respecter of person (Acts 10:34). Many people do not believe that the Holy Spirit is operating today as it did in the prophecies of the Old Testament, but a close investigation shows the contrary.
Many prophecies of different cultures and religions further clarify the book of Revelation, the vision given to the Apostle John. All of these prophecies occurred since Pentecost, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, in A.D. 33, in Jerusalem (Acts 2:1-4).
Really, for the last 2,000 years the Spirit has been speaking through numerous vessels from various cultures warning mankind of pending disasters. History well documents these facts.
Is prophecy part of the New Covenant?
Now the Apostle Peter said on the Day of Pentecost that many would begin to experience all types of paranormal experiences in this age. "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy (Acts 2:17-18)."
The problem is that many Christians fail to realize that we humans are books in which the Holy Spirit writes therein. The Apostle Paul said: "Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart (2 Cor 3:3)." Simply put, the prophecies of today are written in mens hearts and minds--the true books.
By disannulling the prophecies of wars, earthquakes, deaths of world leaders, etc., that have been given to vessels outside of the Christian tradition, Christians are in essence saying the Holy Sprit has not been operating within mankind.
What is the intent of this article?
The intent of this article is to show that after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, in A.D. 33, Elohim has given prophecies to many seers in various cultures and religions. Now due to the space limitations of this article, the emphasis will be on lesser-known prophecies rather than the well-known ones, such as those of the American prophet Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), the Fatima prophecy, and those of the French mystic Nostradamus (1503-1566).
For example, this article will discuss some of the prophecies of North and South American Indians foretelling the coming of the white Europeans and of mankinds inventions. It will also cover prophecies of numerous saints of the Roman Catholic Church fortelling the demise of the church and the destruction of the Vatican.
In addition, this article will show that many prophecies do expand upon the prophecies in the book of Revelation and Daniel. In the Christian community, these prophecies have been largely ignored and it is only as a result of the Millennium that many of these prophecies have been brought to light.
A student of divine metaphysics must also understand that prophecies have always been a tool for control and propaganda and certain prophecies were kept under lock and key or destroyed, as Hitler did in Germany. (See article "Prophecies" Retreat97 July/August 1997 issue on Dr. Lee Warrens website).
Isaiah the prophet wrote that Elohim declares the end right from the beginning. " the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it (Isa. 46:10-11)." Now the Messiah told John in Revelation that He was Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end (Rev. 1:17).
Has the "Spirit of Prophecy" been working since Johns Revelation?
The only proof that the "Spirit of Prophecy (Rev. 19:10)" has been operating is seeing the fulfillment of various prophecies that were written down or spoken. This is what Yahshua the Messiah did. He fulfilled prophecies in the Old Testament or Law and the Prophets that were written thousand and hundred of years before His birth (Isa. 8:20; Mt. 5:17-18; Lk. 24:44-46).
In fact, one can say that no major event occurred in the earthplane that Elohim did not reveal to mankind in advance.
The annals of history are full of all types of prophecies given to mankind from all walks of life. Some of these prophecies are astounding. They were written down and fulfilled hundreds of years later.
How did primitive cultures see that man would fly airplanes that they called iron birds in the future or describe nuclear weapons?
What did a Hindu poem prophecy about a nuclear war?
Let us look at a Hindu epic poem, Mahabharata, written between 300 B.C. and 300 A.D., which is about two Indian families at war over a kingdom in northern India. Although many scholars consider it to be a secular work, the Indian culture has awarded it quite a bit of religious merit.
The weapons described in this poem appear to be nuclear and also describe the effects of radioactive poisoning. Now the question is: how was the writer able to describe such advanced technology some 2,000 before it was invented?
Oppenheimer, chief physicist of the atomic bomb project, quoted the Hindu poem "Mahabharata" when the USA droped its first A-bomb. It states: " a single projectile charged with all the power of the universe. An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousand suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the unknown weapon, the iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of Vrishnis and Andhakas.
The corpses were so burnt they were no longer recognizable. Hair and nails fell out. Pottery broke without cause... Foodstuffs were poisoned. To escape, the warriors threw themselves in streams to wash themselves and their equipment." http://www.kent.net/paranormal/anomalies/mahabharata.html
The poem goes on to describe the devastation of this weapon which is similar to the destruction of the A-bomb. "A substance like fire has sprung into existence blistering hills. Rivers, and trees. All are being reduced to ashes."
Oppenheimers interpretation of this poem was that an atomic war had occurred sometime in the distance past and destroyed mankinds civilization. There is no proof of this, but we do know that these weapons are a part of our earths history now. With India testing bombs underground and Pakistan retaliating, we never know who will accidentally or intentionally begin a nuclear attack.
What did the Hopi Prophecy?
When one examines the Hopi American Indians prophecy, it also verifies the Hindu scriptures. John Hogue quotes the Hopi prophecy "The Gourd of Ashes" that states: "The white brother will bring the symbol of the sun which makes a great explosion shaking the earth (p. 39)." (See http://www.ausbcomp.com/redman/Hopi_Prophecy.htm http://www.newage.com.au/library/hopi.html
What is astounding is how did such a so-called primitive and non-Christian people describe an atomic blast? This is more than a coincidence.
The famous stranger Kate-Zahl, an Indian Prophet of the Toltec tribe in Central Mexico, in 100 AD, foretold of pending destruction by white strangers (p. 330). He prophesied that "white men from across the sea" would be destroyed in a final war. He said that they would bring this upon themselves with their new weapons.
Many failed to realize that Yahweh-Elohim can cause people to receive divine visions or dreams that can reveal the future (Num. 12:6). [See http://www.wolflodge.org/stargate/ and http://www.inforoute.net/users/LightWorker/walkamer.html]
Now the Apostle John in a vision in Revelation said the "beast"would bring down fire from the heavens (Rev. 13:12-13; Psa. 73:22). Here the "beast" is men of today armed with nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons with absolutely no love for humanity in their hearts. The wine of Mystery Babylon poisons them (Rev. 17:1-5). So there is only one possible outcome.
What was St. Malachis vision about the Popes?
As Yahweh-Elohim revealed to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in a dream the kingdoms that would come after his kingdom (Dn. 2nd chp.), which Daniel the prophet interpreted. Likewise, in the year 1139 A.D. Yahweh Elohim caused St. Malachi to fall into a trance as he neared Rome. He began to murmur 111 Latin phrases that described each popes reign until the last pope.
The book The Story of Prophecy by Henry J. Forman makes the following accounts. "Yet, somehow it appears strange to find members of an ancients institution, like the Catholic Church, still powerful and active in the world today, predicting its end, at least in its present form, practically in our own times. And many a pious Catholic accepts it. (p. 139)."
For example, Pope Pius VII (1800-1823) was referred to by the Latin phrase "aquila repax," which means "rapacious eagle." This is appropriate since Napoleon carried him captive.
Now St. Malachy uttered a Latin phrase "Religio Depopulata" which means religion depopulated. This described Pope Benedict XVs (1914-1922) reign. Depopulation also described World War I, which killed 37 million of the Christian flock.
Pope John XXIII (1958-1963) was called by the Latin phrases "Pastor et Nauta" "pastor and sailor." He led the Church through the most reformation and he was the patriarch of the city of Venice (famous for its sailor, according to the John Hogues book.
The Latin phrase that describes the reign of John Paul I is "De Medietate Lunae" the middle moon or from the half moon and John Hogue describes this in his book (p. 31). John Paul I reigned only 33 days.
John Paul II is referred to by the Latin phrase "De Labore Solis"- which means from "the sun labor." This describes his laboring for his flock. Pope John Paul II has traveled to more countries than any pope in history. According to St. Malachy there are only two popes left.
St. Malachy makes the following prophecy concerning the last pope. "During the last persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit upon the throne Peter the Roman, who will pasture his flock in the in the midst of many tribulations; with these passed, the city of the seven hills will be destroyed; and the awful Judge will then Judge the peoples (p. 143)."
Now the book of Revelation confirms this when John wrote that the beast with the ten horns would burn the city that sits on seven hills and afterward judgement would come (Rev. 17:16-18; 19:1-9).
Did the Indians prophecy that the white man would come to America?
One of the most astounding prophecies of the American Indians, especially by the Hopi and the Aztec, was the coming of the white man, called Pahána, to the New World, according to John Hogues book (p. 7). None of the history books describe the American Indians visions concerning the coming of the Europeans. These visions describe the visitors skin color, weapons, ships and the strange beasts they would be riding.
Now the Aztecs and other Indian visions revealed ships from the east coming with alien bearded men in shining armor having thunder-rods (muskets), riding on deer, for there were no horses in the new world. Even the great Aztec King Montezuma (1480?-1520) had a vision concerning the Spaniards invasions according to John Hogues book (p. 7). They were told the visitors would kill them, imprison them, take their gold, and burn their cities. The Roman Catholic Spaniards led by Cortez fulfilled this prophecy in the 16th century.
The Hopi said the white men would return with the sign of the cross and bring a holocaust upon the land through his inventions and lack of spirituality (p. 38). These American Indians had no knowledge of Christianity.
It should be noted that the New Worlds of the Americas symbolically represent the Present Kingdom Age of Grace that began with the outpouring of the spirit that gave mankind liberty, freedom from sin, and an increase in the knowledge of the Spirit. Likewise, the Americas, especially the U.S.A., has manifest these principles from a physical standpoint. This is in terms of individual and religious rights and the knowledge created here in America.
Did someone prophesy of the Industry Revolution?
As the American Indians prophesied, the new inhabitants of the land were great inventors. This is especially true when one considers the Industrial revolution, which was the next step in mankinds revolution from the agricultural way of life. The industrial revolution altered mankinds lifestyle and view of the universe.
Ironically, many people from all different cultures prophesied of these new inventions before their times. This is in light of the fact that most people only knew of transportation by horses, asses, and boats.
Many scholars and historians have looked on these prophecies with disdain. In fact, most of these prophecies have never been included in our history book. Understanding the "Spirit of Prophecy" shows that no future event has ever occurred without Elohim revealing it to mankind before it happens.
The Old Testament is just a model of what Elohim had been doing to mankind all along before it was written. There are numerous examples of seers in the past that prophesied future inventions. In this article due to space only a few seers will be mentioned.
What did Moll Pitcher prophesy?
One of the prominent seers of the 18th century that played a role in the American Revolution was Moll Pitcher (1731-1815). Both the American and the British forces consulted her during the American Revolution. Her most remarkable prophecies foretold future inventions. They were uncannily accurate.
John Hogue points out in his book that she prophesied of horses that would be kept as ornaments (p. 10). She also prophesied that music would be conducted hundreds of miles over wires from where it was played. This was the invention of the radio and television.
Who was Mother Shipton?
Mother Shipton (1488-1561) was born in England and many considered her a witch. She gave some remarkable prophecies in poetic verse regarding mans inventions. She was discredited when she thought the world would come to an end in 1881.
This did not disannul her insight into future inventions. Quoting the book The Story of Prophecy, it stated her following poem concerning future inventions: "Carriages without horses shall go, And accidents fill the world with woe. Around the earth thought shall fly. In the twilight of an eye; Iron shall float in the water shall float, As easily as wooden boats."
Now for these prophecies to be uttered in the 16th century is astounding. It further confirms the American Indians prophecy about the white mans inventions. It also shows that Elohim has given visions to all mankind without respect of their races.
Did Nostradmus prophesy of the radio and electricity?
The most famous seer of the 16th century, Nostradamus (1503-1533), noted for his many prophecies, prophesied of the invention of radio waves and electricity. He states: " the lightning so harmful to the rod will be taken from the earth and suspended in the air (Century 3 Quan. 3)."
Did someone prophesy of the World Wars?
As was stated earlier in this article, history was written in the eye of the beholder. It is hard to believe that someone living in the 16th through the 19th centuries could prophesize the three most significant events in the 20th century. Two of these events were fulfilled and the seed for the third has already been sown.
Any historian knows that two of the most significant events in the 20th century were the two world wars: WWI and WWII. Whenever World War III (WWIII) occurs, it will be shown that the seeds for it have already been sown in the 20th century. Clearly, this shows that the spirit of prophecy has been operating through mankind since the Apostle Johns visions whether one is conscious of it or not.
What was Maria Laachs prophecy of the 16th century?
According to John Hogues book (p. 105) and The Fate of the Nations book (p. 388), the prophecy of Maria Laach, was recorded in the 16th century in a monastery in Germany. She stated that there would be "three great wars" in the 20th century with intervals of a few decades between these wars. This would not only bring death and destruction, but also apostasy to the Church. There would be strife in families and between governments.
She prophesied that not only would Germany suffer ruin, but also the countries of the East and West. Now this was in the horse and buggy days. So, Maria had to receive some type of visions from Elohim. http//www.dreamscape.com/morgana/pandora.htmWas Stormberger an 18th century prophet?
The timeliness of Stormbergers prophecies show that Elohim had to give him these visions which furthered mankinds understanding of the purpose of Elohim. If Stormbergers prophecies could be taken as an isolated incident, they could be ignored as someones delusion or fantasy, but there were others that did not know each other that confirmed this prophecy.
Stormberger, a cowherder by profession, was born in the 18th century, in Rabenstein, Germany. He was noted for his visions and was feared and hated by the local people. He gave some uncanny prophecies about wars that would be fought in the 20th century, the depression, and inventions that would be created.
Now Stormbergers prophecies were not general, but were very specific. For example, Stormberger gave the signs when WWI would take place. According to Arthur Prieditis book Fate of the Nations, he prophesied that: "When in the outskirts of the forest the iron road will be finished, and there the iron horse will be seen, a war will begin, to last twice two years ...(p. 372)."
Now World War I began August 1, 1914 when the iron road, the railroad, between Kalenneck and Deggendoef was finished. He also stated that the war would last 4 years--"twice two years." Arthur Prieditiss book states: "It would be fought with iron fortresses that move without horses (p. 372)." These were the tanks that were first used during WWI. The reader must keep in mind that these prophecies were given 200 years before they actually occurred.
He stated that right after WWI, there would come a time when money had no value. One would need a great deal of money to buy a loaf of bread. This did occur in Germany after WWI. The great American prophet Cayce also prophesied of this great depression.
Now if one thinks the prophecies of Stormberger were a fluke, then one should see his prophecy concerning WWII. He states in his prophecy that two or three decades after WWI, there would come another Great War, which would involve most of the nations of the world. Millions of men would die and many cities of the world would be destroyed. Now this Great War was WWII.
There were others in past centuries that also prophesied of WWII, such as Nostradamus and Pastor Bartholomaeus Holtzhauser (16th century), St. Oldie, Miracle Fatima, Seeress Regina, the German Cassandra to list a few from the book Fate of Nations.
Did someone prophesy WWIII?
Many have seen visions of WWIII, the Mother Battle of All Battles. Again Stormberger states in his prophecy that there would be another war after WWII called a "third universal conflagration." He states new weapons will be used and that more men will die in a day than in all previous wars. He also states that some places on earth shall become a "great cemetery." Stormberger states that men with "open eyes shall enter WWIII and those that know will be silenced (Hogue, p. 108)."
Did someone at the Monastery Marienthal prophesy of WW III?
Now both Hogues and Prieditis books explain the Monastery of Marienthals prophecy (1749) written in medieval verse. No one knows who wrote it in the guest book of the monastery, which was published in 1749 as the Book of Pilgrimage. It stated that there would come another Great War in the 20th century, which would make all previous wars pale.
It describes weapons as "streams of fire from clouds, where there were no clouds (p. 108)." These are the mushroom clouds of nuclear weapons. It also describes great eagles flying in the sky, which are jet bombers. Capital cities around the world will be destroyed.
What is so astounding about these seers is that they described weapons and inventions before their time. This proves that there must have experienced some divine inspiration. Space is not avaliable to examine all prophecies of WW III but in future issues of "PLIM REPORT" this subject will be explored.
When prophecies not found in the Bible are compared Biblical prophecies, there is no doubt that the "Spirit of Prophecy" also reveals these premonitions. It is quite apparent that these prophecies are a continuation of those found in Revelation.
These prophecies prove that the seers of Israel were not a fantastic tale of someones imagination. If one has an eye to see, one knows how Elohim has used prophecies as His method of operation through the ages. Mankind in whatever cultures has always been warned of the future in this manner.
What this shows is Yahweh-Elohims way of proving His divine existence and infallible operation, for he is the only one capable of declaring the end from the beginning (Isa. 46:9-10). Each generation of mankind had seers from a personal standpoint, which substantiate what is written in the Bible.
Now the main reason for prophecy is to establish mankinds faith in Elohim. The Apostle Peter wrote that the word of prophecy is as the daystar dawning in our hearts and minds. "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts (2 Pet. 1:19):"
