Astronomers are calling Comet ISON, due to arrive in November 2013, the comet of the century. Astronomers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have been sounding the alarm about the potential for a comet or asteroid (which they say would cause massive tidal waves). Ex0-Vaticanus authors Tom Horn and Chris Putnam also identify this comet with a possible prophecy from a a 12th-century Benedictine abbotess, Saint Hildegard, a Geman born mystic. Her prophecy is as follows:
Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent, by an earthquake, storm and tidal waves will be devastated. It will be divided, and in great part submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea, and lose its colonies in the east through a Tiger and a Lion.
Many people believe this nation is the United States, the great melting pot of the world. Its eastern colonies certainly could be the original colonies on the eastern seaboard. The Lion and the Tiger could be two nations who attack America’s Eastern Coast with a nuclear weapon. The national symbol of Iran is the Lion and the tiger that of China. Iran is a bitter enemy of the USA and China certainly has been flexing its power lately.
In the Tanakh, China is called Sin. It’s gematria is 120 (not using the sofit form of the Nun). China has a long standing relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran. China has been helping them since the 1980′s with their nuclear program under the supposed umbrella of peaceful usage. Iran’s president, Ahmadinejad also has a gematria value of 120. In Gematria Ketana, the zero is dropped making it the value of 12, which is the gematria of GOG. The word time in the last day prophecy is and also equals 120 (12). Whether all this works out biblically – we will have to wait and see.
Another interesting non-biblical prophecy, from a Jewish source is called the Child Prophecy.
In Jewish tradition, the end of days refers to the times before the arrival of Moshiach. (The messiah) It is supposed to be a turbulent time, prior to an age of harmony between nations.
Theprophesy focuses on the Statue of Liberty, as it apparently figures in the cryptic prophecy of a boy prophet named Nachman who prophesied in the fifth century of the common era.
In the small village of Banam in the Galilee, approximately 420 years after the second temple was destroyed as young Jewish boy gave a prophecy concerning the End of Days. This boy was a ‘miracle’ child who was gifted with knowledge of Torah secrets from birth. His prophesy, now called the Child Prophecy is considered the ‘holy of the holiest by the Rabbi of Shomer Emunim.
Rabbi Avraham ben Eliezer HaLevi wrote a special commentary concerning the prophecy and even the saintly Tzemach Tzedek studied the prophecy. Though the prophecy was spoken in a mixture of Aramaic, Hebrew, Arabic and Greek, Rabbi Yaakov Nathan has deciphered the fourth part of the prophecy which states: “When the idol of Rhodes is destroyed, know that the end of the wicked kingdom is near.”
The Colossus of Rhodes was a 35 meter tall statute constructed on the Greek isle of Rhodes and was one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. The Colossus was originally built in 280 BCE and stood for 60 years until an earthquake knocked it over. In our modern times, another idol of Rhodes was built which has become the most famous statute known in the world. Called the ‘New Colossus” this modern idol of Rhodes is erected in New York City and is known as the Statute of Liberty. The Statute of Liberty originally was conceived as a veiled Arab (Muslim) woman and was to be given to Egypt for the Suez Canal, but they refused the offer. The statute was then re-configured as Lady Liberty and the rest is history.
The prophecy indicates that when Lady Liberty is destroyed, the wicked kingdom (America) will soon come to an end. Hildegard’s prophecy also appears to indicate destruction on the east coast of the USA, possibly as a result of an attack, which of course is the location of the modern idol of Rhodes, Lady Liberty who in reality is a mock-up of the goddess Ishtar.
