Abstract:

Prophecy: It's no secret that today's prophecy business is booming. From the Virgin Mary to Nostradamus to the channelled messages of New Age entities like Ramtha and Michael, we find ourselves with a truly bewildering array of prophets and prophecies, past and present, to choose from in our search for an answer to that perennial question - What does the future hold? Relevant prophecies are explored in historical context as well as in relationship to the prophetic.

Personality itself. Rage: Our times are characterized by social paranoid disorder that results in individual feelings of rage and loss of control. Seemingly stuck in our lives, we begin to suspect that the change we crave will come from some unstoppable outside force. Faced with the enormity of forces truly beyond individual control, we begin to look at the possibility of redemption - of somehow being spared destruction and improving our chances of becoming one of the.

Chosen few to survive the destruction around us. The New Age: Spiritual and quasi-spiritual movements of current and past periods in history have a common collective team: to reassert the individual's sense of control over one's life and environment. And these movements tend to manifest themselves in three ways: purification, otherworldliness, and looking to the past for clues to enlightenment.
