Surprisingly, there are many prophecies from various sources that point to the particular situation of the times in which we live. Although predictions thing sometimes is not quite reliable, but it can easily be mistaken as "food for thought" …
We begin with the "popular" Prophet — Michel Nostradamus. In his influential book, "Decoded Nostradamus" Dmitry and Hope Winter, it seems, were able to correctly pick up the keys to encrypted chronology of his prophecies. And what is their main conclusion? After a series of wars and turmoil in the world should be followed by the Golden Age, around 2035. This would involve a return to the world of some of the ancient spiritual teachings, the forgotten people.
The events in Iraq are mentioned by Nostradamus with daunting clarity:
"In Mesopotamia (Iraq) will indicate the militant left hand …" (9.76).
"Five and forty degrees the sky will burn. Fire close of the great city of New … "(6.97).
(At the forty-fifth degree of longitude is Baghdad, "New City" — of course, New York)
And here is a little bit about what will happen when all the trouble will end:
"After that, the Golden Age. Between people and God will make peace. Spiritual power to regain the highest authority "(From" Letter to Henry ").
Will be "a new sect of philosophers despise death, gold, honors, riches, native mountains will not be limited to their followers will receive support and solidarity" (3.67).
Vangeli Gushterova Pandev, who became known around the world as a blind Baba Vanga, repeatedly struck his contemporaries remarkably accurate predictions. Sometimes pronounced grandmother Wang and amazing prophecies concerning the future of mankind. What is most surprising — there is also mentioned the war in Iraq and the ancient teachings. So, one day she said, "Here comes the world of ancient teachings. I asked, "How soon will come the time?" No, not soon. Syria still has not fallen! "(Syria — it is right next to Iraq, in addition, Wang said indistinctly, and therefore it is possible that she said" Assyria. "It is an ancient state was precisely in what is now Iraq.)
And here are some of the prophecies grandmother Vanga: "The Earth is entering a new period of time, which may be called the time of virtues … The future belongs to the good people, they live in a perfect world, which we are now hard to imagine … The hidden gold will come to the surface, but the water will disappear . So certain. (By "gold" here means the true wisdom.) … The world will return the most ancient teachings. There is an ancient Indian doctrine. It will spread around the world. On it will publish new books, and they will be read all over the world. "
Of all the books of the Bible, there are two that contain prophecies addressed to the present day. This is the "Book of Daniel" ("Old Testament") and "Apocalypse (Revelation)" John the Baptist ("New Testament").
The prophet Daniel speaks of a time when "the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of God, whose kingdom — an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him" (Daniel, 7.27).
John the Evangelist says: "He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself with them and be their God" (John 21.3). And Satan will be "bound for a thousand years, that he should deceive the nations no more."
Those Dmitri and Nadezhda Winter, who deciphered the history of Nostradamus seems to have found the right key and timing, which are given in Daniel and John. And, would you believe it, but the "end times", or the beginning of a new time, the prophecies of both books goes to 2038, almost next to the date specified by Nostradamus.
Seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe
Hasidism — this direction in Judaism, which arose in the eighteenth century. Hasidim professed joyful praise of God by singing and dancing (very similar to what the sankirtana movement, founded by Sri Caitanya in the sixteenth century in Bengal). Led Hasidic world is Lubavitcher Rebbe, teacher and spiritual guide. Seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe was Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994), who achieved great success in the revival of Judaism after the Second World War. Last years of his life he always spoke of the imminent arrival of Moshiach (Messiah who would bring spiritual liberation to all mankind.) For example, in the spring of 1991: "Live now in the New Age. Study it. Talk about it. Look carefully at each part of the world, and imagine what it would be in these times. Be here. Not only hasten its arrival, and get ready to take it good. "
The Dead Sea Scrolls
Winter 1947 three Bedouin shepherd found in the Qumran caves in the Dead Sea scrolls are ancient, hidden there is a sect of the Essenes in 68 BC These scrolls were many predictions, some of which have already come true.
French linguist Bonzhan Felix was one of the scientists admitted to this roll. He claims that they read as follows: "From 2025 to the happy people begin century without the economic crisis, poverty, wars to 11,191 years."
Helena and Nicholas Roerich was a lot written and said about what on earth will soon come a new era, the era of higher consciousness. People will open the secret knowledge of the ancient sages. This will be preceded by a period of great turmoil.
In one of his last letters (Feb. 18, 1955) Helena Roerich wrote of adverse events that will occur in the late twentieth — the early twenty-first century: "The events will develop suddenly … a terrible time cleaning whirlwind sweep. The difficulty is that many still do not understand the reason and meaning perpetrated on the planet … The world will be no war — just some of the collision. "
And what do they say about this Vedic literature? Veda — is the oldest and still the most complete scriptures in the world. They contain a surprisingly accurate and complete information about the structure of the universe, the cycles of time, the past and the future. Among other things, can be found in the Vedas, the predictions coming of Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, and even Queen Victoria …
The Vedas describe in detail the cycle of four periods, recurring on Earth (and in the entire universe): The Golden Age (Satya Yuga), the Silver Age (Treta Yuga), Bronze Age (Dwapara Yuga) and Iron Age (Kali Yuga) . You and I have the pleasure of living in the Iron Age. It started about 5000 years ago (this is the time when they start to turn the main events described in the Bible), and will last for 427,000 years. However, this unusual Iron Age (this happens only once in 8,640,000 years). After 5000 years after the start (right now!) Should begin inclusion Satya Yuga — Small Golden Age.
In the "Brahma Purana vaivarta" The Supreme Lord Krishna ("Krishna" in Sanskrit means "all-attractive") says that in 5000 years after the beginning of the Kali Yuga in this world will be His great devotee, who will circulate throughout the singing of the holy names of God: "Not only in India but all over the world people are chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. Thanks to the whole world will be united. It will consist of the devotees of the Supreme Lord. And because the devotees of the Lord are very clean, anyone coming into contact with them, will be cleared from the consequences of their sins. This era will last 10,000 years. "
Srila Prabhupada, who founded in 1966 in New York, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in order to spread the Vedic knowledge in the world, used to say that we are on the threshold of the Golden Age, which will last 10,000 years. Here are excerpts from his conversation with Allen Ginsberg, the famous American poet and composer of the time, in May 1969:
Ginsberg: How do you think the people chant the Hare Krishna, will become more or less?
Prabhupada: More, of course more. Now, their number will grow. People will use this opportunity for the past ten thousand years.
Ginsberg: And then?
Prabhupada: And then they gradually cease to do so.
Ginsberg: So this is the last hope, the last breath of air?
Prabhupada: (laughs) Yeah. Therefore, the sooner we will be on the path of Krishna consciousness, the better.
But the words in a conversation with Dr. Arnold Toynbee, in July 1973: "This movement will grow. For ten thousand years, Krishna consciousness movement will grow and spread: it is predicted in the scriptures. But ten thousand years everyone will have the opportunity to gain Krishna consciousness and thus achieve the goal of human life. And when the ten thousand years are over, come the dark days of the Kali Yuga. But the time is. Ten thousand years — it's a lot. "
