What are the World Prophecies
All the great Religions in the world have offered glimpses of the future of mankind through prophesies.
Hindu or Vedic religion believes that the evolution of life on earth takes place in four epochs. Each epoch is an age known as Yuga spread over millions of years. Thus we have ‘Sat Yuga’ (the age of truth), ‘Treta Yuga’ (age of three-fourths truth), ‘Dwapara Yuga’ (age of half truth) and ‘Kali Yuga’ (complete annihilation of truth). The period or Yuga in which we live now is ‘Kali Yuga’, which is also called the Dark Age. With the end of Kali Yuga, the four-epoch cycle is repeated again and again ceaselessly. In each age, a divine entity called an ‘Avatar’ descends on earth and leads the evolution of mankind. According to Hindu prophesies, towards the end of Kali Yuga, a divine entity called Kalki will descend on earth in human form. Kalki will bring about positive change in the attitude of people around the world through a spiritual revolution and usher in lasting peace.
The Bhagwat Gita, the holy book of Hindus, says (Chapter 4, verses 7 & 8):
“Yada Yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata abhyuthanam adharmasya tada tmanam srjamyaham”
Translation: “Whenever there is a decline of righteousness and rise of unrighteousness, O Bharata (Arjuna), then I send forth (create incarnate) Myself.”
“Paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam dharmasamsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge-yuge”
Translation: “For the protection of the good, for the destruction of the wicked and for the establishment of righteousness, I come into being from age to age.”
Judaism and Christianity, both of which follow the Bible, have prophesied about the advent of the third and the last prophet. The Old Testament (Tenach in Hebrew) contains a prophecy by prophet Malachi about the coming of the future prophet, whom He describes as ‘E-li’jah’. In the Gospels in the New Testament, a prophecy is made by none other than Jesus himself of the advent of the prophet who he calls The Comforter.
Prophecies about the coming of an Avatar or a Prophet made by three different religions bear amazing similarities. All of them foretell of a terrible divine retribution against mankind through wars, famine, fratricide, and natural disasters in the 21st century. They speak of the coming of the last avatar or the prophet to save only the truly spiritually-inclined from this near total annihilation of humanity.
A comparative study of these prophesies will most likely prompt a discerning reader and thinker to conclude that all the three religions — Hinduism, Judaism and Christianity — are not speaking of three different prophets but, in fact, of the one and the same divine entity to descend on Earth to re-establish divine rule.
Guru Siyag was given a glimpse into these prophecies and his own future role in playing them out when he had repeated visions in 1984 of certain portions of the Gospels in the New Testament. They were shown to him in visions, and spoke of the last prophet, the Comforter, to follow Jesus to establish lasting peace and divine rule on earth.
Jesus, who is considered the second prophet after Moses, prophesied the advent of the third and the last prophet, the Comforter. “But “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.” (John 15 :26)
“And ye shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning” (John 15:27)
When Jesus spoke of going away forever, his disciples were immensely saddened. They pleaded with him not go away. To this Jesus replied“Nevertheless I tell you the truth : It is expedient for you that I go away : for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you : but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” (John 16 :7)
It is clear that Jesus was not only speaking of the coming of the Comforter, but was preparing the world for the latter’s advent. What is the relevance of the Biblical prophesies with Guru Siyag? Study carefully what Jesus says in Bible when anxious disciples clamor to know when the Comforter would come and how the world would identify Him.
Warning: Jesus first warned that there would be many imposters claiming to be the Comforter sent forth by God. “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3)
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”
“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”
“Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.”
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
“Behold, I have told you before.”
“Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.”
When: As disciples clamored to know when the Comforter would arrive, Jesus expressed his inability to predict the exact timing of His arrival, saying “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” After leaving his mortal body, Jesus roamed the spirit world for 40 days. He appeared in his spirit form to many of his disciples and preached to them about the kingdom of God. On the 40th day, Jesus addressed his disciples thus:“And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith, ye have heard of me.
“For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”
(Act of Apostles 1:4 and 1:5)
The Holy Ghost referred to by Jesus here is the Comforter who was to follow him and baptize people. However, his words “…. not many days hence” have caused considerable confusion among the interpreters of the holy texts. The words “not many days hence” have been interpreted to mean Earth days. If this is taken literally, then the prophecy made by Jesus has not materialized. This cannot be. Jesus, the Son of God would never utter a lie. For Jesus said clearly about his prophecy, “Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass away.” (Gospels, St. Mathew-24: 35)
When Jesus speaks of “not many days hence”, he is referring to the days as they are seen on the cosmic scale since He was speaking from the spirit world. This is explained in St. Peter-II, “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (3:8)
Thus the prophecy of Jesus about The Comforter’s coming completes a day only when the Christian calendar completes a cycle of one thousand years. Similarly, as the Christian calendar completed two thousand years, 2 days on God’s cosmic scale are over and the world has entered the third day — the 21st century when all the prophecies are expected to materialize.
