The author predicts a war against Israel in the near future. What do you think about that?

Post by Sushan »

The author describes how the world is going into chaos along with all the environmental pollution and global warming. At the same time, with the immigration of many Jews to Israel due to various historical reasons since the 1990s, their population as well as scientific advancement has achieved quite a high state, because there was a knowledge influx along with the influx of many people. With that, the author predicts that other powerful nations grow jealous of Israel and try to grab their technology and knowledge by capturing the country with a military move. But Israel will win this under a command of a great military leader and then some other spiritual leader will rise and lead the nation.

As per the author, he has predicted this according to the God's words regarding the 'end times', and also he suggests a time that this will happen, in the year 2133. What do you think about this prediction, considering that it is supposed to happen in the future which is not so far? How much chance is there for this to be true? Is it really backed either by biblical teachings or current political state of the world?

It's dangerous end times nonsense.

It was clearly stated in the book that that part was fictional. And when I had a chance to discuss this with the author, he told that he was reluctant to include this fictional part in his book, yet as readers requested something that they can understand, other than biblical predictions, he included this part.

But, yes, I agree with you. This sort of content which is related to religious beliefs can be dangerous, because some of the extremists may actually act upon this sort of things, taking them into their belief systems

Note how the prediction conveniently will occur after the book is in the public domain and his heirs will no longer receive royalties.

Yes. Maybe this prediction might come true. And this book might actually get some credit for mentioning itas well. But the author or us, the readers won't be there to see that.

And also, the world will be the same even after 2133, and still we won't be there to see that. So pondering over this matter seems as time wasting.

So, if pondering over this matter seems as time wasting, as you say and claim here, then why did you actually start this thread, to ponder over?

Much more likely it won't and no one will remember to verify this in 2133 since we'll all be dead.

That is quite true, and maybe the author too had thought about the matter in a similar way. Maybe that was the reason for him to write it in a book. A book can outlast many human generations, and there are books that have already done so (i.e. The Bible). So if someone find this book by then, then he/she will be able to confirm or deny the fact.

So what do you say as "it won't"? The prediction coming true or something else?

The "prediction" (as opposed to another description: random bull crap from a nobody).

That term can be used for the whole thing as the author has expected it to happen, with his historical pattern and all the concepts regarding the Gog and Magog wars and the divine plan of the God. Yet I think we can give credit to him for his attempt because he has chosen an area which is highly prone to wars, and any such prediction will come true.

I think the author's prediction has been proven right within the three months since this topic was posted.
My entire political philosophy summed up in one tweet.

"The mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master."

I believe spiritual freedom (a.k.a. self-discipline) manifests as bravery, confidence, grace, honesty, love, and inner peace.

It can be said that it is proven partially. But actually the author's prediction was a full blown war in a large scale with the involvement of several countries, which will be the so called Gog Magogg war. But as I believed, and will be believing in the future, that the world has developed treaties that prevent another world war from happening. Israel and Gaza had to stop their fighting because of the pressure from other country leaders.

And actually the war was not against Israel, but Israel started it against the Gaza border.
