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 might rise from Egypt and 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 communism seems 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 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!
“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 ?—The New World Order?
Cayce mentioned “an unseen force [hidden power?] directly opposite to the Nazi or Aryan theme”. Does this perhaps refer to Communism, or to Zionism?—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 in Spain and 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: “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”
We can see it every day on the world news, in all these ethnic powderkegs, Iran, Iraq, Kawait, 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!
