Signs of the next Prophet
The Comforter will come from the east
The Bible clearly indicates that the third and last prophet will come from the east. The Old Testament talks of the third prophet E-li’jah thus:“Calling a ravenous bird from the east, 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.” (Isaiah 46:11)
Similarly, Jesus Christ clearly indicates that the Comforter will come from the East: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the West; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthews 24:27)
Relevance: Guru Siyag belongs to the East (India-Rajasthan). He believes that unless the spiritualism (spirit) of the East (the ancient Vedic wisdom) meets with the materialism (matter) of the West, there will be no lasting peace on earth. Guru Siyag has therefore been sending messages to the West for the need to bring the east and the west together. These messages have been traveling at a lightning speed via the internet just as the relevant stanza in the Bible says,“For as the lightening cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the West; so shall also the coming of Son of man be.”
The comforter will speak a foreign tongue
“In the law it is written, with men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.”(1 Corinthians 14:21)
Relevance: Here the stanza clearly says that God in His avatar as the Comforter will speak in a foreign tongue with His disciples who too will speak a foreign tongue. But all their efforts to communicate His message will be met with opposition from the West. Guru Siyag and his close disciples speak Hindi (Indian language), a foreign tongue for those living in other nations. Many of Guru Siyag’s overtures to explain the importance of the spirit have been treated with anger by the West.
The Comforter will baptize (initiate) people
The Bible prophesied that the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, would baptize people. Act of Apostles: “And being assembled together with them, (Jesus) commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.” (1: 4) and “For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized by the Holy Ghost not many days hence.” (1: 5)
There is a similar reference to the Holy Ghost baptizing people in the Revelations (7: 2 & 3) where Jesus says: “And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.”
Relevance: From both of these references from the Bible, it is clear that only the Comforter or Holy Ghost will baptize people, and that He will do so by “sealing the servants of God in their foreheads.” Only a spiritual master (the Holy Ghost) of highest order, who has Himself realized God, can truly baptize people exactly in the manner mentioned by Jesus. Guru Siyag is one such spiritual master, who says that realizing God is not a matter of reading scholarly books or intellectual discussions; it is a matter of experiencing God – self-realization or God-realization. Guru Siyag asks his disciples to realize and experience God by chanting a divine mantra and meditating on the center of the forehead (just above the center of eyebrows, which is often called the Third Eye) just as Jesus says, “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” The Center of the forehead or the Third Eye, according to Hindu religion, is the main center of consciousness. Once this center is activated by the spiritual master through “Shaktipat” (activating of divine cosmic energy force) or baptism, the seeker’s gaze turns inward and he realizes God.
The Comforter will cure incurable diseases
“And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.”
“But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.” (Luke 10:9 and 11:20)
Relevance: This prophecy has already come true as GSSY has cured countless people of terminal diseases and chronic ailments. Guru Siyag tells the sick and dying who come to him for help, “If negative forces are within you, so is God. Once this divine force is awakened within you, what can the negative forces do? They have to go out, ending your suffering and pain. You are ushered into divine bliss.” This is exactly what the Bible means when it says,“But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.”
The comforter will show unlimited past and future
Jesus told his acolytes that one sure sign of identifying the true Comforter was to test His ability to show His followers the events of the past and future after baptizing them. Consider the following:
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself: but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will ‘shew’ you things to come.” (John 16 :13)
“He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16 :14) “All things that the father hath are mine : therefore said I, that he shall take of mine and shall shew it unto you.”
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Jo-el:
“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.” (Acts 2: 16 to 2:33)
“And on my servants and on my hand-maidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.”
“Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.”
Relevance: A number of people, who have been initiated into Guru Siyag’s Siddha Yoga through Shaktipat (initiation), testify that during meditation they have witnessed events of the distant past and those that are to happen. Some have gone on record to say that they could see their own past lives. Says Guru Siyag, “Once you make sufficient progress on the spiritual path through Siddha Yoga, you will develop special powers which will enable you to take a peek into distant past or future. You can see those events as if you are watching them live on a television screen.”
However, some Christian theologians have grossly misinterpreted ‘shew’ as ‘declare’. ‘Shew’ refers to that which can be seen or heard. While to ‘declare’ means something entirely different.
Guru Siyag points out that ancient Hindu sage Patanjali, who was the first sage to have codified the vast system of Yoga, has clearly stated in his treatise “Yoga Sutra” that it is possible for a spiritual seeker to develop “Pratibh Gyan” (intuitive knowledge) which enables one to see deep into distant past or future. Once the practitioner gains intuitive knowledge, nothing remains hidden from his gaze; he can instantly visualize at will even the most obscure object. As a matter of fact, sage Patanjali goes further by saying that a spiritual seeker or Yogi who has attained intuitive knowledge, can also experience his five senses of perception grow to the ultimate perfection. This helps the Yogi to experience the divine super senses of sound, touch, sight, taste and smell. For a Yogi who has reached this stage, God is not a subject of mere imagination; he can experience divinity through all the super developed senses of perception – something that no ordinary man can even begin to imagine.
Forces will try to harm child Comforter
Prophecies in Revelation 12:15 and 12: 16 say:
“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.”
The prophecy, described here actually occurred in Gurudev’s life. Gurudev’s himself describes this event, “In the year 1933, it was raining unusually heavily during the monsoon season. As a child of nine years, I was living with my mother in my village Palana, in Bikaner district of Rajasthan state. My village is slightly below surface level, therefore rain water comes flowing down towards the village. Due to heavy rains, the village was filled with water. Houses in villages are usually made of mud and almost all of these went down. In my village, only one hut made of wood remained standing in which my mother and I took shelter. Suddenly, in the south-west of the village the earth cracked in 10 to 15 places. These cracks were about 15 to 20 feet long and two and a half feet wide. Within a few minutes all water disappeared into those cracks. Approximately 10-15 feet away from my hut in the north-west direction, a similar crack appeared and the water surrounding us went down. Had that crack not appeared, in the next 10 to 15 minutes my mother and I would have drowned.
“The major reason behind these cracks was the coal-mines near the village. There can never be an effect without a cause. But when this prophecy was made, my village and the coal-mines did not exist. My village was inhabited only 390 years ago and coal-mines were dug around 100-110 years ago.”
