Forecasters. Book 2 of the Path of Man series


Published on

The Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
(NIV, Amos 3:7)

Humans (the homo sapiens species) emerged from the Great Apes around 500,000 years ago, and the creation of Adam (the first modern man, with knowledge of sin) was in 3968 BC.

The crucifixion was in 33 AD, exactly 4000 years (4 days) after the creation, followed by 2000 years (2 days) of grace, and then 1000 years (1 day) of rest (the millennial kingdom).

Daniel's seventy 'sevens' (taught by the angel Gabriel) prophesied the exact day Jesus was cut off, exactly 173,880 days after the decree of King Artaxerxes to rebuild Jerusalem. Jesus and the prophets repeatedly told us: everything happens on the day appointed by God long in advance.

The 7000-year theory has been studied for thousands of years, but it is just a theory. The definite day is, and always has been, known only by the Father.

  2. 2. A Note from the Author The Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7) Humans (the homo sapiens species) emerged from the Great Apes around 500,000 years ago, and the creation of Adam (the first modern man, with knowledge of sin) was in 3968 BC. The crucifixion was in 33 AD, exactly 4000 years (4 days) after the creation, followed by 2000 years (2 days) of grace, and then 1000 years (1 day) of rest (the millennial kingdom). Daniel's seventy 'sevens' (taught by the angel Gabriel) prophesied the exact day Jesus was cut off, exactly 173,880 days after the decree of King Artaxerxes to rebuild Jerusalem. Jesus and the prophets repeatedly told us: everything happens on the day appointed by God long in advance. The 7000-year theory has been taught by rabbis since the days of Moses, but it is just a theory. The definite day is, and always has been, known only by the Father. The Path of Man series Book 1.

  4. 4. Part I. The Seer of the West
  5. 5. Path of Man Forecasters The Seer of the West Nostradamus o Background Michel de Nostredame (1503 - 1566), or Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and forecaster. In 1555, he published Les Propheties, a collection of quatrains, each describing a future event. In a letter to his son, Nostradamus explained why he did not include exact dates in the book. For God's mercy will be poured forth only for a certain time, my son, until the majority of my prophecies are fulfilled and this fulfillment is complete. Then several times in the course of the doleful tempests the Lord shall say: Therefore I shall crush and destroy and show no mercy; and many other circumstances shall result from floods and continual rain of which I have written more fully in my other prophecies, composed at some length, not in a chronological sequence, in prose, limiting the places and times and exact dates so that future generations will see, while experiencing these inevitable events, how I have listed others in clearer language, so that despite their obscurities these things shall be understood: When the time comes for the removal of ignorance, the matter will be clearer still. His forecast would be passed on until the day it is made clear, when mankind learns the Truth. Book 2 Page 4
  6. 6. Path of Man Forecasters The Seer of the West The Creation of Adam: 3968 BC o Almanacs Although Nostradamus did not provide exact dates in Les Propheties, in the last few years of his life, he learned the correct year for the creation of Adam and publicized it in his almanacs. o Almanac for 1562 French text: L'An apres la creation du monde, selon la vraye supputation des Chronographes 5529. Et de la nativite de nostre Seigneur Jesus Christ 1562. English translation: The year after the creation of the world according to the real computation of Chronography 5529. And the nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ 1562. 1562 AD - 5529 years = 3968 BC o Almanac for 1566 French text: L'AN apres la creation du monde selon la parfaite supputation des Chronographes 5533. & de la Nativite nostre seigneur JESUS CHRIST, 1566. English translation: The year after the creation of the world according to the computation of perfect Chronography 5533. & Nativity of Our Lord JESUS CHRIST, 1566. 1566 AD - 5533 years = 3968 BC Book 2 Page 5
  7. 7. Path of Man Forecasters The Seer of the West Chronology o The Creation of the World Although Nostradamus never published the full chronology from the creation of Adam to the birth of Jesus, he was aware of the exact year of the creation. The leading estimates at the time placed the creation at around 4000 BC, and about 80 years later, Archbishop James Ussher would place the creation at 4004 BC. Nostradamus understood that according to the true chronology, the creation of Adam occurred in 3968 BC. A chronology of the 4000 years from the creation of Adam to the crucifixion of Jesus can be found in Timelines. Although Nostradamus referred to 3968 BC as the year of the “creation of the world,” modern science suggests that the earth was formed about 4.6 billion years ago and the universe was formed about 13.8 billion years ago. The year 3968 BC marks the creation of Adam (the first prophet and the first man to know sin) and the beginning of God’s seven-thousand- year plan of renewal. It was the dawn of modern mankind, which gave rise to the first human civilizations in Mesopotamia. Hence, 3968 BC was the start of the present age. o The Present Age The seven days of Genesis, in light of Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8, are representative of the seven-thousand-year present age. The seven-thousand-year theory has been studied since the days of Moses. From the creation of Adam in 3968 BC, God devotes six days (six thousand years) to work, and He reserves the seventh day (one thousand years) for rest. The day of rest corresponds to the millennial kingdom described by the disciple John in Revelation 20:9. According to the prophet Daniel, mankind is faced with a great tribulation during the final seven years before the establishment of God’s kingdom. In the middle of the final ‘seven,’ the false prophet directs mankind’s abandonment of the Law and of God. 3968 BC + 7000 years = 2033 AD 2033 AD - 7 years = 2026 AD 2026 AD + 3½ years = 2030 AD Nostradamus, in his 1557 epistle to King Henry II, attempted to date the creation of Adam using biblical chronology. It would be a few more years until he learned the true date, as revealed in his 1562 almanac. Still, in the epistle, he revealed his forecasts for several events leading up to the great tribulation and the start of the seventh millennium. Book 2 Page 6
  8. 8. Path of Man Forecasters The Seer of the West Death of Mabus o Epistle to King Henry II The events which will take place at the beginning of the seventh millenary, when, so far as my profound astronomical calculations and other knowledge have been able to make out, the adversaries of Jesus Christ and his Church will begin to multiply greatly. … The seventh millenary, when the sanctuary of Jesus Christ will no longer be trodden down by the infidels who come from Aquilon [the North]. The world will be approaching a great conflagration, although, according to my calculations in my prophecies, the course of time runs much further. … Hearing the affliction of his people, God the Creator will command that Satan be cast into the depths of the bottomless pit, and bound there. Then a universal peace will commence between God and man, and Satan will remain bound for around a thousand years, and then all unbound. The year 2033 AD is not the end of time. Rather, it marks the start of the seventh millennium, when Satan is locked up and the true believers join with Christ in the millennial kingdom. o The Prophecies The events leading up to the seventh millennium are forecasted throughout Les Propheties. It has become clear to many people that the following quatrains are related to the last years.  Century 2, Quatrain 62: Mabus will soon die, then will come, A horrible undoing of people and animals, At once one will see vengeance, One hundred powers, thirst, famine, when the comet will pass.  Century 8, Quatrain 77: The Third Antichrist very soon annihilated, Twenty-seven years his bloody war will last. The heretics dead, captives exiled, Blood-soaked human bodies, and a reddened, icy hail covering the earth. o War on Terror The beginning of the War on Terror was marked by the August 7, 1998 United States embassy bombings and the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks. They were masterminded by Usāma (Osama) bin Lādin (Laden), an anti-Jewish and anti-Christian militant. Osama bin Laden, who was possibly the “third antichrist,” led al-Qaeda until his death in 2011. His death only added fuel to the fire, as millions of misguided believers rally behind his image for the remainder of the 27-year war. Book 2 Page 7
  9. 9. Path of Man Forecasters The Seer of the West The Seventh Millennium: 2033 AD o The Covenant of Peace If the events of 1998 and 2001 were in fact the beginning of the 27-year war, the end of the War on Terror will come around the year 2026. The covenant of peace (Daniel 9:27) will be established, and the final seven years of the sixth millennium will begin. Having secured peace in the Middle East, New Rome will begin its reign in the Promised Land. Much of the world will be devastated by thirst, famine, and a storm of hail. Then Comet Wormwood will pass. o The Final Seven Years This is a shortened version of the final seven years, from Timelines. The Seer of the West Nostradamus was a great Seer of the West. His most popular book, Les Propheties (1555), provides his forecast for the major struggles faced by the Western world. Since he did not provide exact dates, the book has done little to warn us of events before they happen. However, in his 1562 and 1566 almanacs, Nostradamus provided the exact year for the creation of Adam: 3968 BC, the same date reached in Timelines. We can expect the “beginning of the seventh millenary,” described in his 1557 epistle to King Henry II, to occur in 2033 AD. Book 2 Page 8
  10. 10. Part II. The Seers of the East
  11. 11. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East Li Chun-Feng o Background Li Chun-Feng (602 - 670) was a Chinese mathematician and astronomer during the Tang Dynasty. As a master of the I Ching, he wrote the prophecy book Tui Bei Tu. The book contains 60 poems and 60 accompanying drawings that foretell China’s future. The first 55 have been fulfilled, in order. Poems 39 to 55 describe events of the 20th century, including: the Japanese invasion of China, Chinese relations with Taiwan, communism, the rule of Mao Zedong, the Korean War, and the Tiananmen Square Massacre. There are 5 remaining prophecies. o I Ching The I Ching originated in the 3rd millennium BC. Its divination system has taught Chinese prophets to look at time, both past and future, as one inevitable process, thus providing insight into God’s predestined plans for man. At the age of 50, the great Chinese philosopher Confucius declared that if he had another 50 years, he would devote them to the study of the I Ching, and he spent much of his life doing just that. Book 2 Page 10
  12. 12. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East Nuclear War o Poem 56 Flyers are not birds, swimmers are not fish, A war does not depend on soldiers. It's a game of technology. Millions of miles of deadly smoke, on top a mushroom and at bottom a fountain. A sight out of people's imagination. Big trouble not solved, but greater trouble arrives. o Corresponding Scripture The four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. (Revelation 9:15) He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. He exercised all the authority of the first beast … and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast. (Revelation 13:11) o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 11
  13. 13. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East The Son of God o Poem 57 In an extreme situation, things turn around. A three-feet tall kid, made all foreigners bow down. When Blue West and Red East struggle, a son of God appears, a gentleman who brings peace and stops the killing. This unbelievable genius is from the middle of the two, westernized and thus ended all wars for good. o Corresponding Scripture Jesus will be born in the middle of the final seven years and taken away by God during the 1,260-day reign of the beast (Revelation 12:5). He is from the Promised Land, in the middle of Blue West (the democratic Western nations) and Red East (the communist Eastern nations). When Jesus returns at Mount Zion, his body will possibly appear as a three-foot tall (3½-year old) kid. With one swing of his sword, all armies will be defeated and all wars will be ended. o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 12
  14. 14. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East The Holy Kingdom o Poem 58 Big trouble is over, and all foreigners gave in. Become brothers. Six - seven countries. Millions of miles without noise nor waves. Become brothers, become friends, and peaceful again. Only remaining danger lies in north-west, thus we still cannot sing a global song of peace. o Corresponding Scripture The millennial kingdom is established, and Satan is bound for a thousand years. There remains a population of unholy people (Gog and Magog), which multiplies and awaits Satan’s release. When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the four corners of the earth - Gog and Magog - to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. … But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. (Revelation 20:7) o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 13
  15. 15. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East A New Age o Poem 59 No castles, no walls. No my, no yours. The entire world becomes one family, prosper throughout the globe. One man for the entire world's joy, Follows God's will and prospers the world. Red, yellow, black, white all together. North, East, South, West in total harmony. o Poem 60 One negative, and one positive, a never ending cycle, Enders end themselves. Starters start themselves. The numbers of God will be studied at this stage. The natural course of human race shall be broken. Too many things to say here. Pushing the man's back forcing him to rest is actually better. o Corresponding Scripture “The dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. … There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:3) “To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.” (Revelation 21:6) On no day will its gates ever be shut. (Revelation 21:25) Jesus Christ is the one man who will bring God’s truth and prosperity to the world. Book 2 Page 14
  16. 16. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East Zhuge Liang o Background Zhuge Liang (181 - 234) was a chancellor of Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms period of China. He was a great military strategist, plotting several successful plans for the warlord Liu Bei. He wrote 14 prophetic poems about China’s future. The first 10 were fulfilled in order, and there are 4 remaining. o First 10 Poems (Fulfilled)  Poem 1. Hexagram: [Feed] Cannot regain strength, Bow down and cry, The birth of Wai. The Wai family defeated Liu Bei’s descendents and began its reign over China.  Poem 2.

For five dynasties, starting with Shiba and ending with the Yang family, competing warlords spread violence throughout China. Book 2 Page 15
  17. 17. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East  Poem 4. Hexagram: [Solution] The Lee’s family will start from Tai-Yuan. Sun and moon shall shine the sky. The Lee family began its revolution at Taiyuan. It established the Tang Dynasty, which ushered in a few hundred years of peace for China, until its fall.  Poem 5. Hexagram: [Stop] Within fifty years, there are eight. For fifty years after the Tang Dynasty, eight families fought for control over China.  Poem 6. Hexagram: [Duay] The soil produces metal. The Song Dynasty (960 - 1279) lost much of its land to the Mongolian Golden Horde.  Poem 7. Hexagram: [Well] Yuan started all, Use force from the center, Five and five inherit, Then you go West and I go East. The Mongolians conquered much of Asia and established the Mongol Empire in 1206. Though the empire was divided into four main parts, the Yuan Dynasty was recognized as the suzerain. Ten generations ruled the Yuan Dynasty before it fell.  Poem 8. Hexagram: [Trade] Sun and Moon brighten the sky, The color is red, The branch has sixteen leaves. In 1368, the Ming (meaning “sun and moon”) Dynasty was established by the Ju (meaning “red”) family. Sixteen emperors ruled the Ming Dynasty before it fell.  Poem 9. Hexagram: [Advance] The word Ching, Started by foreigners, Ten emperors shall rule, Will end with Tong. In 1644, the Aisin Gioro family invaded from the north and overthrew the Ming Dynasty. Ten emperors ruled the Ching Dynasty (1644 - 1912), and the title of the last emperor was Shuen Tong.  Poem 10. Hexagram: [Difficulty] The Lord and the peasants will trade places. Trouble will disappear when a friend arrives. In 1912, revolutionaries overthrew the Ching Dynasty and ended 2,000 years of imperial rule. They established the Republic of China (1912 - 1949). In 1937, Japan invaded China. The Japanese were defeated by Allied forces in 1945. Book 2 Page 16
  18. 18. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East A Whistle from the West o Poem 11. Hexagram: [Li] Four doors are wide open, Everything rushes in at once, A whistle from the West, Turns into devastation. Currently China and the West (particularly the United States) are major economic partners. This will come to an end with the outbreak of war, empowered by the Four Horsemen. o Corresponding Scripture The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke, and sulfur. … The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent. (Revelation 9:14) o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 17
  19. 19. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East The Savior o Poem 12. Hexagram: [Too Much] Saves people and ends trouble, Can call this person a saint, The sky is once again brightened. o Corresponding Scripture Days before Armageddon, a thick darkness will encompass the earth. The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. Men gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent. (Revelation 16:10) The victory of Christ, the highest saint, will save mankind, end the trouble, and brighten the sky. o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 18
  20. 20. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East The Holy Kingdom o Poem 13. Hexagram: [Big Storage] The wise men will not be out-casted, The entire world will become one family, No title and no gain, Glorified the Chinese culture. o Corresponding Scripture I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4) o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 19
  21. 21. Path of Man Forecasters The Seers of the East A New Age o Poem 14. Hexagram: [Unsettled] When I got this hexagram, The number shuffle comes to the end, From ancient to today, The reasoning is immense. o Corresponding Scripture “The old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) The Seers of the East Li Chun-Feng and Zhuge Liang were two great Seers of the East. They were able to forecast specific events and name the rulers of China, hundreds of years in advance. Most of their prophecies have been accurately fulfilled, and their few remaining prophecies closely mirror the events of John’s Revelation. Around the year 2030, a nuclear war will break out between the Western world and the Eastern world. This war will give rise to the false prophet and the Union of the Beast. In 2033, Jesus Christ will return, possibly having the body of a three-foot tall kid. He will end all wars and establish the millennial kingdom. In 3033, after the thousand years of rest, God will end the present age of mankind and create a new world. Book 2 Page 20
  22. 22. Part III. The Catholic Saints
  23. 23. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints Blessed Pope Pius IX o Background Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti (1792 - 1878), born in Italy, became Pope Pius IX in 1846. His reign of nearly 32 years was the longest of any elected pope. In 1869, he convened the First Vatican Council, which decreed papal infallibility. He also defined the Catholic dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which means Mary was conceived without original sin. o Beatification The beatification process for Pope Pius IX began in 1907. He was declared venerable in 1985 and beatified in 2000, both by Pope John Paul II. Book 2 Page 22
  24. 24. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints Atheistic Revolution o Forecast from Blessed Pope Pius IX Since the whole world is against God and His Church, it is evident that He has reserved the victory over His enemies to Himself. This will be more obvious when it is considered that the root of all our present evils is to be found in the fact that those with talents and vigor crave earthly pleasures, and not only desert God but repudiate Him altogether. Thus it appears they cannot be brought back in any other way except through an act that cannot be ascribed to any secondary agency, and thus all will be forced to look to the supernatural. ... There will come a great wonder, which will fill the world with astonishment. This wonder will be preceded by the triumph of revolution. The church will suffer exceedingly. Her servants and her chieftain will be mocked, scourged, and martyred. o The Final Seven Years Before the final seven years, the world will experience an atheistic revolution. The two witnesses of Revelation 11:2 will preach God’s word to a world that has abandoned His Law. Book 2 Page 23
  25. 25. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints Saint Malachy o Background Saint Malachy (1094 - 1148), born in Ireland, was an Archbishop of Armagh. The Prophecy of the Popes was first published by the Benedictine monk Arnold de Wyon in 1595. He claimed that the prophecy had been recorded by Saint Malachy and stashed in the Vatican for over 400 years. The prophecy consisted of 112 Latin phrases, each referring to one of the remaining 112 popes of the Catholic Church, in order, starting with Pope Celestine II. Some critics claim that Arnold de Wyon forged the document to influence the selection of the next pope. Although its origin remains disputed, many people believe the prophecy accurately describe all 112 popes. If it was a genuine prophecy, the current pope is the last. o Canonization Saint Malachy was canonized in 1199 by Pope Clement III. Book 2 Page 24
  26. 26. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints The Final Pope o Forecast from Saint Malachy 1. From a castle of the Tiber. (Celestine II) 2. Enemy expelled. (Lucius II) 3. From the great mountain. (Eugene III) 4. Abbot from Subbura. (Anastasius IV) 5. From the white countryside. (Adrian IV) … 107. Shepherd and sailor. (John XXIII) 108. Flower of flowers. (Paul VI) 109. Of the half moon. (John Paul I) 110. From the labour of the sun. (John Paul II) 111. Glory of the olive. (Benedict XVI) In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit. Peter the Roman (Francis), who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End. o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 25
  27. 27. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints Saint Hildegard o Background Hildegard of Bingen (1098 - 1179), born in the German County Palatine of the Rhine of the Holy Roman Empire, was an abbess of the Order of Saint Benedict. She recorded a number of popular writings, including songs and plays. Throughout her life, she experienced visions, and at the age of 42, she experienced extreme pain from a vision she believed to be sent by God. o Canonization Several parts of the Catholic Church recognize Hildegard as a saint, although her canonization remains at the beatification stage. Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI both regarded her as a saint, and she was named a Doctor of the Church in 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI. Book 2 Page 26
  28. 28. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints The Great Comet o Forecast from Saint Hildegard The time is coming when princes and peoples will reject the authority of the Pope. Some countries will prefer their own Church rulers to the Pope. The German Empire will be divided. Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea and lose its colonies. [After the] great Comet, the great nation will be devastated by earthquakes, storms, and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries, so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed. All sea coast cities will be fearful, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God. A powerful wind will rise in the North, carrying heavy fog and the densest dust, and it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease their butchery and be stricken with a great fear. o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 27

Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich o Background Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774 - 1824), born in Germany, was an Augustinian Canoness of the Congregation of Windesheim. As a child, she had visions of Jesus, Purgatory, and the Holy Trinity. Clemens von Vischering, the vicar general, referred to Emmerich as “a special friend of God.” Later in her life, she became sick and bedridden. She was visited by the poet Clemens Brentano, who she recognized as the man chosen by God to record her prophecy. o Beatification Anne Catherine Emmerich was beatified in 2004 by Pope John Paul II. Book 2 Page 28
  30. 30. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints The False Prophet o Forecast from Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich I saw many pastors cherishing dangerous ideas against the Church. … I saw the Church under the new ruler. In all the rooms lay his children (that is, his plans), a full collection of his views. … He had set fire to the house, and I with others had to save the goods and convey them to the sheepfold. They built a large, singular, extravagant church which was "to embrace all creeds with equal rights”; Evangelicals, Catholics and all denominations, a true communion of the unholy with one shepherd and one flock. There was to be a Pope, a salaried Pope, without possessions. All was made ready, many things finished; but, in place of an altar were only abomination and desolation. Such was the new church to be, and it was for it he had set fire to the old one; but God designed otherwise. o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 29
  31. 31. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints Blessed Anna Maria Taigi o Background Anna Maria Taigi (1769 - 1837), born in Italy, was a member of the Trinitarian Order in the Church of Saint Charles at the Four Fountains. She devoted her life to visiting hospitals and working for charities, and throughout her life, she experienced visions of future events. After her death, her body was declared incorruptible by the Catholic Church, meaning divine intervention had prevented decomposition. o Beatification Anna Maria Taigi was beatified in 1920 by Pope Benedict XV. Book 2 Page 30
  32. 32. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints Three Days of Darkness o Forecast from Blessed Anna Maria Taigi God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy. All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms. Religion shall be persecuted, and priests massacred. Churches shall be closed, but only for a short time. The Holy Father shall be obliged to leave Rome. o The Final Seven Years Book 2 Page 31
  33. 33. Path of Man Forecasters The Catholic Saints The Catholic Saints The original Christian use of the word “saint” referred to any true believer. In the Catholic Church, there are three steps to formal sainthood. First, a person that demonstrated exceptional faith and virtue is declared venerable. Second, a venerable person that is responsible for a posthumous miracle is beatified. Third, a beatified person that is responsible for an additional miracle is canonized, which demonstrates the highest level of sainthood. Thousands of saints have been recognized by the Catholic Church, and many have left behind their forecasts for mankind. In the years leading up to the end times, the Law will become increasingly trampled and abandoned. In general, mankind will become more convinced that it is the judge of righteousness. Many more of us will proclaim atheism, rejecting that God even exists. By the time Comet Wormwood comes, storms will have become so severe that all coastal cities are in constant fear of flooding. Tensions, compounded by global shortages of food and fresh water, will lead to nuclear war. Out of the struggle there will emerge the great false prophet, and the Church in Rome will be burned by revolutionaries. The false prophet will establish a New Church, which prides itself on union and equality and rejects God. When Christ returns, God’s seven bowls of wrath will be poured out onto the earth, and Rome will be destroyed. For three days, the earth will be encompassed by an intense darkness, and demons will gather the earth’s armies for the battle at Armageddon. The victory of Christ will end the universal darkness. The false prophet will be destroyed, and Satan will be locked up. Jesus will gather all people on the earth and begin His judgment. The millennial kingdom will be established. Book 2 Page 32
  34. 34. Part IV. The Jewish Rabbis
  35. 35. Path of Man Forecasters The Jewish Rabbis Judah ben Samuel o Background Judah ben Samuel (1140 - 1217), born in Germany, was a leader of the Chassidei Ashkenaz, a Jewish mystical movement which emphasized prayer and moral conduct. He was a seer for the Duke of Regensburg and a rabbi to many students. He once had a vision of the prophet Elijah, and he is said to have performed many miracles. o Prophecy In 1217, Judah ben Samuel recorded a prophecy regarding the occupancy of Jerusalem in the years leading up to the Messianic end time. Book 2 Page 34
  36. 36. Path of Man Forecasters The Jewish Rabbis Ten Jubilees o Forecast from Rabbi Judah ben Samuel After the Ottoman Turks conquer Jerusalem:  For eight Jubilees, the Turks will rule Jerusalem.  For one Jubilee, Jerusalem will become no-man’s land.  During the tenth Jubilee, Jerusalem will be back in the possession of the Jewish nation, and the Messianic end time will begin. o Jubilee A Jubilee cycle consists of seven ‘weeks,’ where each week is seven years (a ‘seven’), along with one Jubilee year. During the Jubilee year (the fiftieth year), all slaves are released and all conquered land is returned to its original owners. Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan. (Leviticus 25:10) One Jubilee = 50 years Eight Jubilees = 8 x 50 years = 400 years o Fulfillment Judah ben Samuel recorded the prophecy in 1217. Three hundred years later, in 1517, the fulfillment of the prophecy began, when the Ottoman Turks conquered Jerusalem.  From 1517 to 1917, for eight Jubilees, the Turks ruled Jerusalem. In 1917, near the end of World War I, England conquered the Promised Land from the Turks. The British Mandate for Palestine (1917) declared that the land would belong to no single nation. The state of Israel was established in 1948, after World War II, but East Jerusalem remained in the hands of Jordan.  In 1967, after one Jubilee, Israel captured and annexed Jerusalem in the Six-Day War. Book 2 Page 35
  37. 37. Path of Man Forecasters The Jewish Rabbis o The Messianic End Time According to Judah ben Samuel, the “Messianic end time” will begin by 2017, one Jubilee after the Jewish conquest of 1967. Some people have interpreted this to mean that either the return of Christ or the start of the final seven years will occur in 2017. The year for the start of the seventh millennium reached in Timelines, as well as by Nostradamus, is 2033. So, according to the 7000-year theory, Christ will return in 2033, and the final seven years will begin in 2026. When the final seven years begin, the angels will seal the 144,000 faithful Jewish servants that have proclaimed Jesus as the Messiah. “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel. From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000 … from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000. (Revelation 7:3) Before the year 2026, the 144,000 faithful Jews (12,000 from each of the 12 bloodlines of Israel) must recognize Jesus as the Messiah. This Jewish Recognition will bring many of the inhabitants of Jewish Israel, the nation of God’s original servants, back into His favor. The start of the “Messianic end time,” predicted by Judah ben Samuel as 2017, will be an important year for Israel, as the Recognition will be approaching full swing. By 2026, the Jewish Recognition will be complete, and the final seven years will begin. Book 2 Page 36
  38. 38. Path of Man Forecasters The Jewish Rabbis Yitzhak Kaduri o Background Yitzhak Kaduri (1890s - 2006) was one of the best-known rabbis in the world. He spent his life studying and teaching the Torah, which he memorized. Many people sought his blessings to cure illnesses and infertility. He was told by two renowned rabbis (Yoseph Hayyim in 1908 and Menachem Mendel Schneerson in 1990) that he would meet the Messiah. Although his exact birth year is still disputed, his age at the time of his death was estimated at 110 to 118. o Prophecy Shortly before his death in 2006, Yitzhak Kaduri said that he had met the Messiah and learned His identity and the sign of His coming. Kaduri recorded his prophecy in a sealed, hand-written note, and he instructed his followers to wait one year after his death to open the note. Book 2 Page 37
  39. 39. Path of Man Forecasters The Jewish Rabbis Yehoshua, the Messiah o Forecast from Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri English translation: Concerning the letter abbreviation of the Messiah’s name, He will lift the people and prove that his word and law are valid. The “letter abbreviation” of the note (the combination of the first letter of every word) spells “Yehoshua,” the Hebrew word for Jesus. o Reactions As always, there were mixed reactions to the letter. Some of Kaduri’s followers dismissed the letter as either a mistake or a forgery. Others accepted that Kaduri had been visited by Jesus. The letter strengthened Messianic Judaism, a movement that emerged in the 1960s. The movement recognizes Jesus as the Messiah. By 2008, between 6,000 and 15,000 Israeli Jews had joined the movement and recognized the Christ. Book 2 Page 38
  40. 40. Path of Man Forecasters The Jewish Rabbis o Crosses Aviel Schneider was the author of the Israel Today story that publicized the note in 2007. Schneider was also given access to many other manuscripts written by Yitzhak Kaduri, and he was shocked by several crosses drawn throughout the pages. “They were crosses. In the Jewish tradition, you don’t use crosses. You don’t even use plus signs because they might be mistaken for crosses. But there they were, painted in his own hand.” o Death of Ariel Sharon Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri taught his followers that it would not be until after the death of Ariel Sharon that the Jewish people would begin to recognize the Messiah. Ariel Sharon (born 1928) served as a commander in the Israeli Army during the 1948 Arab- Israeli War, the 1956 Suez War, and the 1967 Six-Day War. As Minister of Defense, he directed the 1982 Lebanon War. He was elected Prime Minister of Israel in 2001. In 2006, Ariel Sharon suffered a stroke, and he has been in a vegetative state ever since. Recent tests have displayed “significant brain activity,” but he remains incapable of movement. Book 2 Page 39
  41. 41. Path of Man Forecasters The Jewish Rabbis Recognition of Christ The Jewish Rabbis Judah ben Samuel and Yitzhak Kaduri were two great Jewish rabbis. They spent their lives studying and teaching the Law of God, and many people credit them with healings and miracles. They failed to profess their faith in Jesus Christ during their lifetimes, but they knew the time was coming for the recognition of Christ within Jewish Israel. The Jewish Recognition will begin in 2017, one jubilee after the 1967 Jewish conquest of Jerusalem and ten jubilees after the 1517 Turkish conquest of Jerusalem. While many people are falling away from God, others will hold true to his Law and pray for the return of Righteousness. The elect 144,000 Jews will profess their faith in Jesus, and then the final seven years will begin. “Obey everything I have commanded you. I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20) Book 2 Page 40
