Prophecies and Scientific Predictions
"Quite contrary to his destiny man has defiled and misused himself and his natural environment and this is the cause of all the grievances that pursue him spiritually as well as materially with all kinds of misfortunes and sufferings." (Secrets of life, p. 90)
"Soon after this time of the greatest industrialization the situation on earth will begin to look very grim for mankind since the soil will become barren." (GGJ Ill, 33, 4)
"And thus it is possible that in times to come people will be making great discoveries with the help of which they will be able to affect nature on Earth so that this will spring a lot of leaks. The consequences will, indeed, be quite disagreeable and become a punishment for men's wrongly applied will; however. not intended by Me, but simply brought about by their own will." (GGJ V, 109. 6)
"It will be like it was at the time of Noah: men will be making more and more improper use of their worldly knowledge and acquired skills, thereby of their own free will be calling forth from the depth of My creation all kinds of judgments upon themselves and, finally, upon the entire earth." (GGJ V. 108.4)
"The natural phenomena and events, accidents and diseases preceding this time are the last efforts to save whatever can be saved, that not all may suffocate in the mire of egoism" (Lord's Sermons, 53)
" But during that time, also a natural fire will destroy many places, for because of a too highly inflated pursuit of earthly gain during that time, the people will penetrate like malicious worms into the depths of the Earth, will search therein all kinds of treasures and will also find them. However, once they will have reached the mighty layers of buried ancient forests of the Earth and will use them for the glowing and melting of metals and still for many other things, then also, the latest judgment which they will prepare for themselves, will be at the door.
 Yet, the people who will then live in the great cities of the kings and the mighty of the Earth of that time will have to suffer the most.
 Therefore, always stay meek and humble, and by that in true neighborly love, then no judgment will be called over you, because where during that time the people will live according to My order, there will be no last judgment. I have told you this now beforehand with the purpose that you will also tell and proclaim it to the people, so that finally no one can bring forward the excuse that he had not been warned for the danger.” (99. The coming judgments – GGJ Book 17)
" So also, one people will rise up against another and will attack them with weapons of fire. Because of that, the rulers will come into great debts that cannot be paid off and will afflict their citizens with unaffordable high taxes. Because of that, there will be an excessive high cost of living, famine, many malicious diseases and epidemics and pestilence among the people, the animals, and even the plants.
 There will also be heavy storms on the mainland and on sea, and earthquakes, and the sea will flood its shores in many places, and then the people will come into great fear and anguish because of the expectation of the things which will then come over the Earth." (33. The first 2 kinds of fire of purification - GGJ Book 20)
" I have shown you now the 3rd kind of fire that has an extremely destroying effect on the darkness of men, and so I also will show you a 4th kind of fire by which the Earth, the people and all creatures will have to be purified by My 2nd coming. This kind of fire will consist of all kinds of great natural upheavals of the Earth, more precisely on those places of the Earth where men have built too big and beautiful cities in which the greatest pride, lack of love, bad morals, false administration of justice, power, prestige, laziness and with that also the greatest poverty and all kinds of need and misery will prevail, caused by a too strongly grown-out Epicurism of the great and mighty.
 In such cities, through excessive pursuit of profit, all kinds of factories will be build on a large scale, and instead of human hands the work will be done by fire and water, together with thousands kind of artful machines that are made of metal. The heating will be done by means of the ancient coals of the Earth that men will acquire in extremely great quantities from the depths of the Earth.
 Once such activity will have attained its highest point[B1]by the force of the fire, the air of the Earth will become too strongly saturated on such places of the Earth with combustible kinds of ether, and these will soon ignite here and there and transform such cities and regions together with their many inhabitants into ruins and ashes, and that will then also be a great and effective purification. But whatever the produced fire will not have accomplished, that all kinds of great storms on Earth will accomplish, obviously only there where this will be necessary, for without necessity nothing will be burned or destroyed.
 By that, also the air on the Earth will be freed from its bad vapors and nature spirits, which will have a blissful influence on all other creatures on Earth and which will also benefit the physical health of the people, because the many malicious bodily diseases will cease to exist and the people will be able to reach a healthy, strong and old age." (34. The 3rd and 4th fire of purification - GGJ - Book 20 )
" Just let those people who possess some power in one way or another try to forbid the grass and all the herbs, bushes and trees to grow again in the springtime, to make new buds, to become green and to bloom, and to prevent all this, or to command the wind and to prescribe the free flash of lightning its way, then they soon will be convinced how great their powerlessness is as a result of their folly.
 Once I have spoken out something and want it to happen, it will happen as certain as the sun must come up every morning and go down in the evening." (GGJ Book 23:11)
