People of the Book

I have previously criticised Islam and even suggested that Muhammad fulfils the descriptions of the Anti-Christ. It might appear from this that I am opposed to Muslims, which is not the case; Muslims are among the most observant and pious of people. I oppose the violent concepts of Islam as taught by the Quran and practiced by its zealots but not against people; many of whom observe the commandments handed down to Moses, which are the same commandments that Jesus exhorted his followers to obey, and have been taught by Jewish prophets and sages for more than three thousand years. We often hear that Islam is a religion of peace (usually when some Muslim group have slaughtered innocents) but it is not a religion of peace; it is a religion of Jihad (Holy War) and conquest whose aim is to impose sharia law over the whole world.

There are those in all faiths that have false views of the followers of other religions and have a tendency to group all members of that religion into an image that fits their own opinion. There are questions surrounding all religions and each expresses views about various aspects of historical teachings. In the past Christians were so sure that their view was right and their interpretation of scripture was the only correct version that they burned at the stake those who disagreed. All people are more alike than different; the habit of assuming something about a group of people because of their religion is a faulty practice. Most people are not strict adherents to religious law, being more interested in earning a living and taking care of family and friends; enjoying a comfortable and pleasant life than in fighting a war over religion. There are also those who use agitation between religions to advance their own political agenda, we must all be wary of these people.

Muslims are handicapped by the teachings of Muhammad and the Quran exhorting them not to befriend Christians and Jews, Islam is inherently violent and intolerant. Muhammad also set an example of violent conquest, paedophilia and beheading of those opposed to his views. The Banu Qurayza (a Jewish tribe) were besieged by Muhammad’s forces for 25 days until they surrendered.  Muhammad's companions decided that "the men should be killed, the property divided, and the women and children taken as captives". Muhammad approved of the ruling, calling it similar to God's judgment, after which all male members of the tribe who had reached puberty were beheaded. The Muslim jurist Tabari quotes the number 600–900 being executed, the Sunni hadith do not give the number killed, but state that all post-pubescent males were killed and one woman. This action is dictated by the Quran; Surah 47:4. “So, when you meet in Jihad in Allah's Cause, those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly on them.” (i.e. take them as captives).

It is unfortunate that today many devout Muslims adhere strictly to these violent commands; and feel they cannot assimilate into modern society because to do so would be an affront to their Islamic tradition and opposed to the instructions of the Quran. Surah 5:51 O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies; (friends in some translations) some of them are allies of one another. Whoever of you allies himself with them is one of them. God does not guide the wrongdoing people. In other words befriending Christians or Jews makes you one of them.

Jewish people adhere to old traditions that predate Christianity, because ancient prophecies can be demonstrated to describe and explain the history of Israel. These same prophecies outline events that are to occur at the arrival of the Mashiach (Messiah) Lit. anointed: A man who will be chosen by God to put an end to all evil in the world, rebuild the Temple, bring back the exiles to Israel and usher in the world to come; the Jewish concept is thus different from the Christian one. It is obvious from this description that the expectations for the Messiah have not yet been fulfilled. In the time of the Christian Messiah (Jesus) the Jews had not been completely dispersed among the nations so of course it would have been impossible to bring back the exiles, because they were not yet exiled or rebuild the Temple that had not yet been destroyed. Those events happened in 70 CE when the Romans destroyed the Temple and expelled or enslaved the Jews from Judea and Jerusalem renaming the land Palestine after the Jews ancient vanquished enemies the Philistines.  

There is also the Biblical instruction in Deuteronomy 18:9, God said, “You shall not learn to do … the ways of those nations” which urges Jews to retain their ancient customs and only follow the Torah (The five books of Moses).  It is the adherence to this command that ensures Jewish resistance to change and has guaranteed that Biblical teachings have been preserved for over three thousand years. The teachings of Jesus are all derived from the Torah and it has been the Jewish protection of the Torah that ensured that Christianity today is based on these values. There is often confusion in other groups about Jews as to whether they are a race or a religion; the simple fact is that they are a family or a tribe. They are the descendants of Jacob who were enslaved in Egypt then liberated to receive the commandments; those present at that event were changed for all time and their offspring carry that change to the present day.

Prior to the birth of Christ Israel was controlled by the Greek King Antiochus IV who banned Jewish religious rites such as observing the Sabbath, the covenant of circumcision and Torah reading. Antiochus also endeavoured to turn the Temple in Jerusalem into a Greek Temple of Zeus, but the Maccabees revolted and a handful of Jewish Rebels under Judah Maccabee defeated the mighty Greco-Assyrian army. The victory is one of two miracles celebrated today by the festival of Hanukkah; the other miracle of the time was the miracle of the oil. There was insufficient purified oil for the Temple Menorah but one day’s supply lasted eight days and it is this peaceful miracle of the oil that is celebrated today far more than the violent miracle of the defeat of a conqueror. It would be a different world today if the Maccabees had not been victorious and Jesus had been raised to be a priest of Zeus.

Since 1948 when the modern state of Israel was proclaimed exiles have been returning to the land, indicating that the prophecies regarding the Messiah may well be approaching fulfilment. Prophecies also state that in the “final days” every hand will be against Jerusalem (Zechariah 12:3) this prediction appears to be being fulfilled before our eyes; with the rise of anti-Semitism all over the world and boycotts of Israeli products being supported by many countries. Of the 193 member states of the United Nations only one is continually castigated for its policies and that is Israel. Despite many other nations having very serious human rights violations only Israel (the only free democracy in the Middle East with equal rights for all citizens) is the one state that is regularly accused as a violator of human rights. The statistics alone support the fulfilment of the prophecy that “every hand” is against Israel, the only part of the prediction yet to be fulfilled is that of storms, upheavals and earthquakes in diverse places. The predicted wars and rumours of wars seem to be occurring in sufficient abundance to qualify as fulfilment of the prophecy.

At the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE the Christian churches ruled that Jesus is God despite prophecies saying that the Messiah is a man, thus driving a wedge between Christianity and Judaism.  The wedge was driven further by Christian aggression and events such the Crusades, pogroms, the Inquisition and the Holocaust. Just as Muslims have a history of slaughtering those with whom they disagree so too until recently did Christianity have a similar history. The office of the Catholic Inquisition began in 1542, in 1908 the name was changed and in 1965 it changed again but is still charged with protecting the faith from “unacceptable doctrines”. None of the violent actions performed in the name of religion is instructed by the Bible; instead they were the actions of zealots. To kill in the name of God is to take his name in vain which is strictly forbidden by the third of the Ten Commandments. (Exodus 20:7).

The major religions of the world are alienated from each other by their views, many of which are false and have been fostered by religious leaders more bent on political power than on religious teaching. Nothing has changed since the days of Cain and Abel each seeking approval and jealous of any who appear to find greater esteem and success; to the extent that one would slay his brother. Each holds his fellow man in contempt because of his religion, it should therefore be no surprise that so many now declare no religious affiliation. Atheists pour scorn on those of faith because of the history of violence and the straying from the law. Many have never read the Bible/Torah and have no idea that there are 613 commandments or what they entail. Only very few have read the work of the prophets and compared them to history to establish any accuracy, those that have done so are regularly amazed by the comparison.

Western society has abandoned religious teaching and rushes headlong toward the inevitable destruction that comes from discarding the laws that built strong nations. Allowing the rule of ego, greed, hatred, sexual deviance and petty jealousy can only result in catastrophe. Studying Biblical prophecy amazes at the number of events that can be recognised as having eventuated and at what appears to await the world in the very near future. When one human life is deemed to be less valuable than others, then all life has become less valuable we must accept the value of all people despite our view of their religion. It is however important that we do not lose sight of the fact that there are among all people those who, like Cain, are evil enough to kill those they blame for their own shortcomings and that Islam urges its followers to war and violence to achieve their aims.

Muslims are convinced that their Mahdi is about to arrive and lead them to victory over the infidels and students of Biblical prophecy (both Christian and Jewish) see events that were predicted millennia ago happening right before their eyes. Those with no Biblical knowledge continue on blindly as predicted for the Bible says, “As in the days of Noah” they will continue oblivious until disaster overtakes them.

Information on the outcome of prophecy is explained in my latest book which endeavours to bring a little more light to the darkness that is creeping over the world.

The Antichrist

Antichrist is a Christian term based on interpretation of passages in the New Testament, in which the term "anti-Christ" occurs several times in 1 John and 2 John, both in plural form and in the singular. In some versions of Christian eschatology, Jesus will appear in his Second Coming to Earth to face the emergence of the Antichrist figure, who will be the greatest false messiah in Christian history. Just as Christ is the saviour and the ideal model for humanity, his opponent in the end time will be a figure of concentrated evil. However as the Bible also speaks of the anti-Christ in the plural it may well be that the anti-Christ is not just a single figure but an opposing ideology.

In 1 John 2:18 it says “…even now are there many anti-Christs’…” and in 1 John 2:22 “…he is anti-Christ that denies the Father and the Son.” These comments indicate that atheists are considered anti-Christs, but the common paradigm is of a single Satan like figure leading evil hordes against those who stand for the teachings of the Bible and the Judeo/Christian societies of the West. Attempts have been made to align various leaders with the predictions and to identify the evil hordes that try to destroy Christianity.

In his prophecies Nostradamus predicts three anti-Christs before the end of time; two are arguably identifiable as Napoleon and Hitler. He made no prediction that might identify a third anti-Christ but that may well be because an anti-Christ might have lived before Nostradamus’ time. There would be no point in providing an identifying verse that pointed to one who had already lived. Muhammad the founder of Islam may have been the original anti-Christ making Napoleon and Hitler the second and third of Nostradamus’ three anti-Christs. In looking for “evil hordes” wanting to destroy Christians we need look no further than radical Islam.

The Epistle of St John that raises the spectre of the anti-Christ is believed to have been written toward the end of John’s life, possibly as late as 90 CE but more than five hundred years before Muhammad, to John, Islam would be the future anti-Christ. The Koran, Islam’s holy book, calls for the collection of Jizya (tax) from subdued Christians and Jews: “Fight those among the People of the Book (Christians and Jews) who do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, and who do not embrace the religion of truth (Islam), until they pay the Jizya with willing submissiveness and feel themselves utterly subdued”. Koran 9:29 In other words Muslim radicals are just those obeying the Koran and trying to subdue infidels.

The anti-Christ sowed the seeds of his revolution about 1,400 years ago and although those raised in the traditions of the Torah/Bible and Christianity are taught to seek righteousness, justice, kindness and mercy, treating all people fairly and equally. The Koran teaches that only Muslims are worthy and all others must be conquered and submit to the rule of Islam. Those who refuse are to be killed by beheading; Islam alone of the World’s belief systems demands the execution of non-adherents and the slaughter of any who leave the religion. Surely these traits are enough to qualify Muhammad as the anti-Christ and his followers as the evil hordes threatening the future of the world. Proof of this attitude of Muslims was demonstrated recently in Israel when Arab staff at a medical clinic in the Old City of Jerusalem did not aid Jewish terror victims. An attack occurred adjacent to the clinic while it was open and medical personnel were present in the clinic. Arab residents reportedly laughed and spat at a victim as she stumbled around with a knife embedded in her back. Red Crescent (the Muslim Red Cross) ambulances have reportedly ignored non-Muslim injured, leaving them to die again demonstrating behaviour that could only be attributed to the followers of the anti-Christ.

A religious war is taking place around the world. Jihadist Muslims are on a religious rampage to establish Islam as the only religion and to control the world with sharia law. They scream for rights when they are a minority, yet when they become the majority; they take away minority rights for all non-Muslims. One doesn't have to look towards Syria, Iran or Saudi Arabia for proof, just at Muslim majority neighbourhoods in London or Paris. This is what is in store for any community in the West where the Muslim population is growing. Recent Islamist terror attacks around the world are indicative of the growing confidence and violence of the evil hordes in their plan to destroy anyone who does not adhere to their violent creed.

In Jerusalem, the best example of Muslim intolerance of all other religions is their ban for any other religion to pray on the Temple Mount. This religious intolerance is the trade mark of Islam. All religions should be allowed to pray on the Temple Mount, Jews, Christians and Muslims. The Palestinian Authority President Abbas has called upon Palestinian Arabs to do anything in their power to stop Jews from ascending to the Temple Mount. The Muslims are intent on destruction and oppression as would be expected of followers of the anti-Christ.

Muslim intolerance in the Middle East, Israel, England, France, the USA and all other places will only stop if people begin to realize that we are in the midst of a religious war and we begin to react accordingly. We are all in the same war; the Jihadist Muslim fight against Israel is the same fight against the Western countries of England, France, USA, Australia and others. Not all Muslims are part of this Islamic jihad but in WWII not all Germans were Nazis those who weren’t did nothing to stop the violence; so too non-violent Muslims do nothing to stop the radicals. To ignore the Jihadist Muslim agenda is a slap in the face to all their victims around the world and a betrayal of those Muslims who are bravely fighting to change the hatred in their respective culture.  

Peace will only come when most Muslims realise that they are the followers of a false prophet and discard both his writings and especially his example. Many Muslims are people of great faith, praying regularly and showing a devotion to God that puts to shame the observances of many Christians and Jews who may only attend Church or Synagogue once or twice each year and rarely pray at other times. Today some Muslims have converted to Christianity after having dreams of Jesus and others as a method of being accepted as refugees, because a return to their homeland would then be a death sentence. Until the onerous Koran and its insistence on death to those who leave Islam and those who will not convert and its plan of world domination is rejected or put into perspective there will always be those who are so devout that they will murder in the name of the prophet. They may claim to be acting in the name of God but taking HIS name as an excuse for murder is breaking one of the Ten Commandments given by God himself and must surely be an act instigated by an anti-Christ.

What happened in Paris in November 2015 should serve as a wake-up call that the enemy is not just interested in territory, but truly believe they are bringing in events to herald the arrival of their messiah. This is why the world needs to acknowledge who the enemy really is. Until western governments acknowledge this, they are guaranteed to lose the fight against radical Islam. Islam may play a larger role in creating an end time scenario than many currently believe. They may yet unite behind a powerful Islamic leader who parallels the Islamic expectations regarding the Mahdi, thus creating the apocalyptic events they believe will lead them to victory over the infidels of the world.

The commencement of all out war along religious lines will suit the West better than the Islamists whose faith is linked closely to physical objects, the destruction of which will leave many floundering. It would be even more devastating if these were destroyed by natural causes, seemingly an act of God. Islam purports to respect the laws of Moses as given in the first five books of the Bible, but many do not know these laws or pay them little heed. Observant Jews follow them and Christ repeated them and required their adherence from his followers, particularly the Ten Commandments and the exhortation to love God above all else.

Biblical prophecy predicts the death of two thirds of the Earth’s population and with the current lines being drawn by Islamists this seems increasingly likely. It will take a concerted effort from all people to try and convince the Islamists who wish to bring about an apocalyptic battle that their view is distorted and can only lead to disaster and their probable defeat. The anti-Christ is known by his lies; truth, justice and mercy will prevail and adherence to violence and hate will not succeed.


Information on the outcome of religious attitudes is explained in my latest book which endeavours to bring understanding to the debate.

The Real Theory of Everything

One of the major puzzles facing scientists today is the inability to reconcile relativity and quantum theory, to establish a “Theory of Everything” which will explain the discrepancies between the two concepts. The basis of the problem is that we are trying to create a theory of everything while refusing to examine everything and ignoring many aspects of the universe. Most scientists are afraid to examine psychic phenomena or religious teachings although some groups investigate these things with an open mind they are careful not to make claims that others might deride.

Academics are regimented and taught what the current scientific paradigm is and in order to maintain their positions and income must not vary from the established view. It is this pressure to conform that restricts research that might otherwise solve many problems. As someone who experiences precognitive events, including dreams and visions of future events, I knew that our understanding of the universe (and time in particular) was flawed. In addition when I learned about the universe we were told that it was eternal and static, only to discover later that the religious view of a beginning to the universe was the correct understanding.

A similar event occurred about a hundred years earlier when the French Academy of Science ruled that meteors were “bunkum”, in their words, “Rocks do not fall from the sky.” That view was changed a few years later by a meteor shower that saw many rocks land on the Earth. Science does not have all the answers nor is it always correct in its rulings. Today this refusal to examine what many people believe or experience may be what is keeping scientists from completing their understanding of the links between quantum physics and what Einstein called, “Spooky at a distance reactions” and our understanding of relativity and the accepted ΛCDM model of the universe.

There are a number of scientists who support a view of intelligent design or a cognisant universe, this view is that the universe is too finely tuned to have occurred by accident. Even Max Planck, the founding father of quantum physics, said: “All matter originates and exists, only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.” The balance between the nuclear forces, electro-magnetic force and gravity are so delicately balanced that any tiny variance would mean that the universe could not exist.

In addition to this Drs. Neppe and Close combined their skills to produce a mathematical description of consciousness and the ultimate conclusion of a mathematical model shows that inanimate matter can never become animate. In other words consciousness had to form before a physical universe that supports conscious beings could exist. Matter cannot become aware but consciousness can become material, which of course poses the question about how objective or subjective is the universe. All we perceive is experienced internally so the actuality of what is and what we perceive may vary considerably; some scientists even consider that the universe may simply be a hologram. Intelligent design is the only logical way in which a universe populated by conscious beings can evolve.

In my first book “The Time Illusion” (published in 1989 but now on Kindle) I described a universe in which all time exists in a single instant. Because gravity controls the rate at which time passes, in an expanding universe we perceive the passage of time to be accelerating. Recent experiments that entangled two photons that did not exist at the same time support this concept. Ultimately the acceleration of time means that when the universe was half its present age time moved half as fast as it does today and so a second at that time was twice as long as it is today. The result of this is that the universe at that time had already existed for the same amount of time as it has today. In the future the shorter second will mean that although we believe more time has passed the smaller time periods mean the universe will be exactly the same age as it is today.

This structure of the universe not only explains quantum action but also why dark matter and dark energy are an integral part of existence. Various proofs were explained in my book “Physics God and the End of the World” (2005) but many people are resistant to any concept that proposes intelligent design. In failing to consider this or to examine paranormal events we are ignoring what may be a large part of the universe, and may very well turn out to be the most important part.

The End of Days

A Jewish commentary describing the End of Days, the Sefer Eliyahu, first published in Salonika in 1743, describes how the Arab nations will attempt to convert the Jewish nation to Islam and rewrite Temple Mount history:

Israel will say to the king of the Arabs, ‘Take silver and gold and leave the Temple.’ The king of the Arabs will say, ‘You have nothing to do with this Temple. …At that time, the Arabs will say to Israel, ‘Come and believe in our faith,’ but Israel will answer, ‘We will kill or be killed, but we will not deny our belief!’ At that time, swords will be drawn, bows will be strung and arrows will be sent, and many will fall.” (Pirkei Mashiach, p. 236)

The Sefer Eliyahu describes a war of faith and religion, of the type being fought today. Sacrifices, or the modern equivalent, prayer, is at the center of the conflict, as the ancient book predicts. Today Jews or Christians praying on the Temple Mount is considered an act of aggression in the international press and a declaration of war.

Though the recent conflict is violent, Rabbi Yekutiel Yehudah Halberstam, also known as the Klausenberger Rebbe, predicted this conflict with the Arabs after the Six-Day War, almost 40 years ago, and instructed his students on how to be victorious.

“Don’t think that the Arabs will always run away; Ishmael will return, resiliently strong. Our ultimate war with him will be a difficult one; we shall not prevail by way of military means…The Nazis killed my wife and my eleven children. I suffered from them in ways that defy description. Yet, the Ishmaelites outdo the Nazis when it comes to cruelty. I shudder to think what will be.”

According to Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson, a world-renowned Bible Codes expert, the conflict between the “sons of Ishmael” and the Jewish nation is clearly spelled out in the Bible. Citing the rabbinic commentary known as the Pirke de Rebbe Eliezer, written 100 years before the beginning of Islam, Ishmael will challenge the Jews in the final days of the messianic era “falsehood will multiply and truth will be hidden,” precisely in the manner Israel is being challenged today.

It appears that in addition to Biblical prophecies which appear to be being fulfilled many other prophetical writings describe what is happening in Israel today. Anyone who has read the Prophecies of Nostradamus must be shaking their heads in disbelief at the apparent accuracy of some of his predictions. In 1974 when Erika Cheetham first published her translation and interpretations many claimed that predictions such as the fall of the Berlin Wall, the failure of communism and a Muslim invasion of Europe were impossible.

In Quatrain 3:97 Nostradamus also appears to predict the defeat of Islam; which he refers to as, “The Great Barbarian Empire” and predicts that it will “crumble”. A recently discovered “Bible Code” or chain of words found in the Torah by reading equidistantly spaced letters makes the same prediction and indicates that the date may be the current Jewish Jubilee year. St Malachy (1095 – 1148) predicted the succession of Popes from his time until the End Days and believed that the current Pope would be the last before Judgement.

At the time that I was born Palestine was the homeland of the Jewish people and even Jews born there were known as Palestinians. The current concept of “Palestinians” as a separate people was created by Yassar Arafat (an Egyptian) and did not develop until after 1964. In 1991 Israel granted Arafat’s group self government but they have never developed their own proper government or infrastructure and have expended all the effort and funds that could have seen growth and prosperity into promoting hatred and lies against the Jewish people and Israel.

Current events and attitudes all appear to have been predicted, not only in the Bible but in the works of many other prophets. It is logical that hatred and falsehoods do not make a firm foundation for a lasting civilisation and so it is probable that the predictions of the crumbling of the barbarian empire could be well founded. The only real question might be the timing, but based on predictions of a war that involves Israel being attacked by those from the lands of Gog and Magog (Russia and Iran) and the increasing involvement of those two nations with Syria the end time may well be in sight.

These events are part of the inspiration behind my latest book

 which I hope will give people some comfort and hope for a future of peace.

Karma

This blog is a break from my usual topics of space, time, gravity and other more material discussions but is one I felt needed to be presented at this time. It is an interesting concept and one which some scientists have begun investigating as we learn more about the structure of the universe and connections at the quantum level. Quantum entanglement may be more pervasive than previously imagined.

The subject that I am reviewing at present is the principle of karma. Reading the news on any day of the week we see countless acts of cruelty and evil, many being perpetrated in the name of G0d. There are millions who are deliberately or unknowingly and unsparingly creating the worst type of karma for the entire planet.

Karma is the law of moral causation, it is a fundamental doctrine in Buddhism or as stated in Biblical terms, “As ye sew so shall ye reap”. The most prominent example of the principle given in scripture is the story of Jacob’s son Joseph. Joseph was one of Jacob’s youngest but he had prophetic dreams that he would rise to great power and his brothers would bow down before him.

This was not a popular thought for the brothers and so they plotted to kill him, the eldest of the brothers was against this and so when the chance came to sell him as a slave they elected to take this alternative course of action.

Joseph was sold as a slave in Egypt but eventually his prophetic ability saw him rise to a position of power, becoming Pharaoh’s second in command. When drought hit the region Joseph’s brothers had to go to Egypt to buy grain but failed to recognise Pharaoh’s official as their younger brother and did in fact bow down to him just as Joseph had predicted.

When Joseph eventually revealed his identity the family moved to Egypt where their karma would be completed. A new pharaoh came to power and enslaved all the descendents of Israel and so the karma for selling one brother into slavery was the enslavement of all the Hebrews.

The tribe was eventually redeemed from slavery under the leadership of Moses but involved demonstrating a willingness to follow the commandments of the Almighty. Israel is often referred to as G0d’s chosen people, this simply means chosen to receive G0d’s word and bring it to the rest of the world. The choosing however was a two way street the Hebrews had to choose to obey and signify this by placing lamb’s blood on the door, the Almighty knows who lives where and doesn’t need a mark on a door to find Hebrews but needed to know who was willing to choose to follow his ways; implying an element of cause and effect a karmic principle missing from replacement theologies.

Our arrogant belief that we know everything and are the smartest beings in existence leads us to disregard ancient concepts such as karma, possibly to our own detriment.   Many old principles are regarded as outdated and people see no reason to ensure that they are honest, trustworthy or kind; a type of fatalistic and hopeless attitude pervades society along with an attitude of “whatever”. This self destructive attitude is not conducive to a sound society or a civilisation that can survive; nor can a society which exists based on the hatred of others fulfill the necessary requirements for a continued existence. It would appear that there is a very real possibility that without a substantial change in the attitude of all people the human race is destined to follow the dinosaurs into the annals of history.

Unless of course Biblical prophecy is correct and one third will be spared by the mercy of the Almighty. Scripture quotes the Almighty as saying, “I will sweep you away from the face of the Earth, two thirds shall be destroyed but one third shall be preserved; but that third I will bring though the fire and refine like fine gold.” It is strange that the Bible predicts that percentage because a survey conducted across several different countries found that only one third of the population are religious and pray every day, quite a coincidence. The one third that are predicted to be spared are those who are willing to lead a life based on righteousness, justice, kindness and mercy.
