Edgar Cayce, a humble American Christian, had from very young the “gift of knowledge” through visions and readings he received while being in a sleep-like trance. Dwight L. Moody, the famous American Evangelist, met him as a young teen and encouraged him in his gift and to become a missionary.
During his life, Cayce received 14.000 readings in his sleep for sick people, getting cures and treatments that worked—even for cancer! He lived by faith, reading his Bible, doing God’s work, daily getting “readings” for people, and trusting Him for everything, including his family’s finances.
Whether you believe he was a true prophet or not, many of his predictions coincide with the Biblical picture of the Endtime. Before World War II, besides predicting that Communist Russia and China would finally become ‘democratic’ and see an upsurge in Christianity, Edgar, in a trance, also gave the following messages, which would only emerge after the fall of Communism in 1989.
CAYCE’s PREDICTIONS ABOUT RUSSIA
Note Russia’s role and terms like “New Order”, “Hope of the World” and “that one that is to rule the World”!
“Through Russia comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what sometimes is called Communism or Bolshevism. No! … The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized. Yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world! On Russia’s religious development will come the greater hope of the world. Then that one, or group, that is the closer in its relationship, may fare better in gradual changes and final settlement of conditions to the rule of the world.”
“A new order of conditions is to arise… Then certain circumstances will come about in political, economic and whole relationship, in which a leveling will occur, or a greater comprehension of the need for it. The time or period draws near for such changes. It behooves all who have an ideal—individuals, groups, societies—to practice faithfully the applications of this ideal. But unless they are up and doing, there must come a New Order for their own relationships and activities.”
“Thus an unseen force, [secret power?] gradually growing, must result in almost direct opposition to the Nazi or Aryan theme. [Zionism?] This will gradually produce a growth of animosities. And unless there is interference by supernatural forces or influence active in the affairs of men, the whole world will be set on fire by militaristic groups and people who are for power and expansion.”
INTERPRETATION: “Hope” Or “New World Order” Out Of Russia?
“Out of Russia” comes “a man (or a group) that will rule the World”! He will represent the “hope of the world”! The Bible also seems to indicate that the AC or ‘Gog’ (Ezekiel 38) might rise either from Egypt but then become ruler of Russia! Mind you this “hope of the world” would not include God’s people, as Jesus said about His followers (John 17:16),
“They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”
“On Russia’s religious development” hangs this “hope of the world!” It may refer to the recent upsurge of Christianity through “democratization” there, as well as in the other former Communist East Block countries. The fall of Communism gave many people hope that the world would become “safe for democracy” and that the cold war would end! Many “who have an ideal—individuals, groups, societies” did “practice faithfully the applications of this ideal,” bringing the Gospel Message and Humanitarian Aid to the East Block! But perhaps they were not enough “up and doing” and so “a new order for their own relationships and activities” is on the way!
Russia’s democracy is faltering, and some old boys of former communism seem to be on the rise again! And perhaps related to that, after a spade of great religious interest and freedom, the government has severely cut back religious freedom. Missionaries of the Gospel, Evangelical Christians and other so-called “sects and cults” are now virtually made illegal, whereas the doors remain open for Buddhists, Jews, Moslems, and of course for the powerful Orthodox Church. Its traditional Mysticism however is increasingly infiltrated by Hindu Mysticism! The “New Age” spiritual movement, very strong in the West, is now also on the rise in Russia! Is all this paving the way for the Antichrist, and his “False Prophet” to eventually establish a worldwide Universal New Age Church—”the hope of the world”? Time will certainly tell!
Update 2017: Putin has made the Jehovah’s Witnesses illegal and any other “new religion” that has no 100 years history in Russia. Putin acts like an Orthodox Christian going to church, but it is also a known fact that the Orthodox Church during Soviet times was fully infiltrated and headed by KGB agents posing as priests, thus betraying real believers to Siberian exile and actual martyrdom. Did that situation really change, since the fall of Communism? Or is Marxism morphing into a new form, called ‘Communitarianism’? And is the official church just as much controlled opposition as before? Time will tell!
We DO understand Putin’s and other Russians’ concerns about the dangers of some American evangelical churches or cults operating as a 5th column under CIA control working for the US ‘New World Order’, after all that is how the US State Department infiltrated and took over the Ukraine.
“THE ONE TO RULE THE WORLD”
Cayce said further: “Then that one, or group, will fare better…to the rule of the world.” Sounds fascinating! The AC and New Age religions, seem to certainly fare better in Russia right now than Christianity, in that economic conditions there are much more conducive for a political revolution than for a spiritual one, as the Devil told Jesus, “All these things will I give you, if you fall down and worship me!” This may very well introduce a “New Order of conditions” and “of leveling economic and political conditions”, as many other predictions from different sources also seem to indicate. A new form of Communism perhaps, or the ultimate One world government ?
Cayce mentioned “an unseen force [hidden power?] directly opposite to the Nazi or Aryan theme”. Does this perhaps refer to Communism, Communitarianism, to Zionism? Or all of the above? —Jews being understandably some of the most vocal and active opponents of Nazism. “This will produce growing animosities.” We have all witnessed how world-wide ethnic wars and “ethnic cleansing” have been escalating since W.W. II. Not just in the Middle East over Palestine and Jerusalem, or in N-Ireland, Basqueland and even Catalonia in Spain as well as many other places, but also in the former Soviet Union and former Yugoslavia!
Jesus predicted this phenomenon as one of His many signs of the Endtime (see below): “nation rising against nation” —or better translated as: “ethnic group against ethnic group”. Cayce foretold that “unless there is interference by supernatural forces, the whole world will be set on fire by militaristic groups” ISIS, Al Qaeda, nurtured and bred by the US and Israel?
We can see it every day on the world news, in all these ethnic powderkegs, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Kuwait, Ruanda, Zaire, Kosovo, Chechnya, East Timor, Aceh, and on and on goes the list! All these situations reinforce the global power of the UN, UNHCR, IMF, WORLDBANK, EEC, NATO, the International Court in the Hague, etc. Global institutions are increasingly taking over in the internal affairs of former sovereign countries! In effect, it certainly looks like the predicted One World Government is already being installed!
This supernatural force might either refer to the supernatural rise and intervention of the AC and his power, who according to Bible prophecy will definitely be a very supernatural political force in the World, uniting all nations for a while. He will even temporarily save the world from a Nuclear Holocaust, through a significant Peace Pact or “Holy Covenant”, according to the Bible prophet Daniel, who predicted that “through PEACE he will destroy many!” But it could of course, also refer to the supernatural intervention in the affairs of violent man of God Himself, through the imminent Return of Jesus and the setting up of His kingdom!

STARRY NEWS EDITOR POST SCRIPT:
Well Cayce got some things right, but not as perfect as the predictions and signs of the End times as Jesus gave 2000 years ago. Listen to what He had to say in Matthew 24. Cayce can’t beat the Master of the House.
[To read King James English easier, replace ‘th’ or ‘eth’ by es or s. Thus ‘speaketh’ becomes ‘speaks’]
24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.
24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
24:3 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?
24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours [news!] of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax [grow] cold.
24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24:24 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.
24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
24:26 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.
24:27 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.
24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
