“Tom Horn’s writing always sizzles…but Zeitgeist 2025 absolutely blazes! Hang on for the ride of your life as Dr. Horn catalogs how the New World Order is already embracing…and preparing for the second coming of…its cherished new gods!”

—Pastor Carl Gallups, bestselling author of Masquerade and The Summoning

If you read my last book, The Messenger, you may immediately have a hint as to what is behind the unusual title of my new work, Zeitgeist 2025. If you do not understand the connection, I highly recommend you read Messenger, as it is filled with the most incredible discoveries involving how, exactly three and a half years before the original date set by NASA for the asteroid Apophis (which I argue is biblical Wormwood at the middle of what most evangelicals and some Catholics call the seven-year Great Tribulation period) to come crashing down on this planet (April 13, 2029), the high holy days of the Feast of Tabernacles will be unfolding on earth. Just a few days before that will be the Feast of Trumpets, and 120 days (biblical numerology for the end of mankind) earlier is Pentecost. All three of these festivals are strongly tied by eschatologists to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Now, you may have seen recently where NASA is repeating their position that Apophis will likely not impact earth in 2029, but will instead barely skim safely past the world while knocking out some of the satellites in orbit around our planet. But as I pointed out recently on different programs, just one of many scientists is warning that NASA’s trajectory calculation of Apophis is off by as much as six hundred thousand miles,[i] which Harry Lear implies could very well send Apophis crashing into earth just eight years from now. Lear sent an open letter to the president and US government scientists begging them to cross check these calculations immediately, even though he ends his dispatch with an ominous admonition that we may already be out of time.

Besides Lear, top-one hundred scientist Nathan Myhrvold, in a recent peer-reviewed paper, “An Empirical Examination of WISE/NEOWISE Asteroid Analysis and Results,” refutes much of the data from NASA and in fact charges them with deliberately misreporting threats by near-earth objects and of behaving “extremely deceptively” with deliberate “scientific misconduct” in a cover-up of very real and potentially imminent space threats.[ii]

Even famous planetary scientist and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson admits that, on April 13, 2029:

Apophis will come so close to Earth that it will dip below our orbiting communication satellites. It will be the largest closest thing we have ever observed to come by earth…the orbit we now have for it is UNCERTAIN…because these things are hard to measure and hard to get an exact distance for—WE CANNOT TELL YOU EXACTLY WHERE THAT TRAJECTORY WILL BE.”[iii] (Emphasis added)

That said, in Zeitgeist, I argue that mankind has indeed most likely entered the last decade of history as it has been known—what prophecy teachers call the Church Age—and how the several unusual things you will read therein set this work apart from all other books on prophecy.

Among the numerous amazing things you will discover within the pages of Zeitgeist 2025 is how the Essenes of Dead Sea Scrolls fame were only one of the ancient prophecy communities to predict more than two thousand years ago that mankind would indeed enter its final age (Jubilee cycle) four years from now, in 2025—three and one-half years before Apophis smashes into our world.

Assuming for the moment that I am right, and that the asteroid Apophis is biblical Wormwood and therefore 2029 represents a time around the middle of the Great Tribulation period when the trumpet judgments begin, Monday, October 13, 2025 (April 13, 2029, minus three and a half years), would be the approximate start date of the seven years of Tribulation foreseen in Scripture (see Matthew 24:21; Revelation 7:14; and Daniel 12:1).




But the year 2025 is also the one envisioned ten years ago in a series of studies co-organized by the Atlantic Council and government organizations from Europe, the US, Beijing, Tokyo, Dubai, and other partnering nations that led the US National Intelligence Council and the EU Institute of Security Studies to produce a report titled Global Governance 2025: At A Critical Juncture.[iv] In this document, the highest-level intelligence agencies in the world determined that a global government could emerge around 2025 from “an unprecedented threat” that would materialize requiring all nations to lay down their differences and come together in mutual defense of one another against an unprecedented “menace.” In particular, they foresaw an incoming asteroid, a new pandemic (which I believe Apophis is bringing with it via an extremophile microorganism with a virus), as well as a biotech-created “new form of human” representing existential threats.

Having said that and realizing what must happen for the world stage to align in preparation of Antichrist’s seven-year reign and world government, a couple months ago I was sitting in my home office contemplating how to start chapter 1 of this most important treatise in light of recent geopolitical events.

It was a chilly Missouri afternoon outside; not supposed to be warmer than thirty-eight degrees all day, just a bit better than Washington, DC, at forty-five degrees, where Nancy Pelosi and company were working hard to refill the swamp and initiate this end-times alignment while also making Donald Trump feel it was even colder than the thermometers said—at least in the air around their shoulders.

I’m sure they thought of what they were busy doing that day as payback, as it was only four years earlier when, on January 20, 2017, with former presidents George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama sitting behind him, the highly unexpected, newly elected Donald J. Trump addressed America and the world by criticizing the former presidents and their establishment buddies in a way nobody had seen or heard before. He made it clear that his agenda for the people had not ended on the campaign trail, and that he had gathered on the west front of the Capitol to announce more than the orderly and peaceful transition of power from the Obama administration to his. I wrote about that amazing day at the time, noting how he began:

Today’s ceremony has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another—but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the American people.

Then, with former presidents squirming in their seats, wishing they could be somewhere else, he offered no quarter, adding:

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished—but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered—but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes—starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.

This is your day. This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.[v]

Whether he knew it or not, with that declaration of war, Mr. Trump had set himself against very powerful enemies—visible and invisible, ancient and contemporary.

To the illumined elite, the inaugural address was a clear salvo that promptly drew a line in the sand from which they made an unholy covenant: “The Donald” would have to learn a lesson about “pulling the drain plug from the swamp” in Washington, DC. The entities entrenched there are ancient, powerful, and far harder to expel than mere political diatribe would muster. What has transpired since reflected this response and was even predictable, though I and half the nation had hoped for more time.

What do I mean?

Secular and biblical scholars, historians, prophets, and even occultists have understood for thousands of years that a very dark time has long been forecast for the nation’s immediate future, and that this destiny would not be delayed forever.

The ancient Essenes—the most accurate Hebrew prophets of all time—saw this final age of man arriving in 2025.



Foreseen by Historians as the Lead-up to Zeitgeist 2025

Besides the Essenes and the multi-government Global Governance 2025 vision, in 1997, in a work describing itself as a thesis “that turns history into prophecy,” professors William Strauss and Neil Howe released their groundbreaking book, The Fourth Turning, which examined Western historical paradigms over the past five centuries and discovered cycles of life and generational archetypes that reveal an astoundingly prescient pattern of incidents that ultimately lead to chaos and a so-called Fourth Turning.

The authors describe a “Turning” as “an era with a characteristic social mood (a zeitgeist), a new twist on how people feel about themselves and their nation. It results from the aging of the generation [before it].”[vi] A society enters a Turning once every twenty years or so, when all living generations begin to penetrate their next phases of life. The living generations, or saeculae, comprise four cyclical Turnings, characterized as:

  • The First Turning (THE HIGH): An era of enthusiastic collective strengthening and civic development, having burned the brush and swept the ashes of preceding structure.
  • The Second Turning (THE AWAKENING): Built on the energies and accomplishments of the High, but finds increasing yearning for introspection with a high tolerance for spiritual expression outside the parameters of predetermined standards.
  • The Third Turning (THE UNRAVELING): Begins as the “society-wide embrace of the liberating cultural forces” loosed by the Awakening shows signs of civic disorder and decay, a heightened sense of self-reliance, and an increasing withdrawal of public trust. This builds to a near crisis of downcast pessimism and a palpable pall that can only be remedied by yielding to the next.
  • The Fourth Turning (THE CRISES and the era we have now entered): By far, the most perilous, as societies pass through the greatest and most dangerous gates of history. As desperate solutions are sought for “sudden threats” on multiple cultural fronts, confrontation is passionate and decisions are often reactive, aggressive. “Government governs, community obstacles are removed, and laws and customs that resisted change for decades are swiftly shunted aside. A grim preoccupation with civic peril causes spiritual curiosity to decline.… Public order tightens, private risk-taking abates, and…child-rearing reaches a smothering degree of protection and structure. The young focus their energy on worldly achievements, leaving values in the hands of the old. Wars are fought with fury and for maximum result.”[vii]

Through the examination of an enormous amount of political and cultural history, Strauss and Howe processed more than five hundred years of such Anglo-American cultural Turnings into remarkable, well-organized, and predictable cycles, and it is from this reservoir that they finally staked an uncanny claim about America (keep in mind they made these predictions twenty-five years ago, long before the September 11, 2001, attacks on America, the pandemic of today, or the January 6, 2021, riots at the US Capitol and subsequent prosecution of Donald Trump). Among the scenarios they foresaw were:

  • A terrorist attack involving an airliner, a military response, authorization for house-to-house searches, and false-flag accusations against the administration.
  • An eco-environmental malaise with the Centers for Disease Control announcing the spread of a new communicable virus [COVID-19] with quarantines and relocations.
  • Growing anarchy throughout the world largely generated along racial divisions leading to unprecedented government suppression of personal freedoms.

In describing these insightful scenarios, Strauss and Howe felt a catalyst would unfold as a result of a specific dynamic, and “an initial spark will trigger a chain reaction of unyielding responses and further emergencies.”[viii]

Strauss and Howe further warned:

Just after the millennium, America will enter a new era that will culminate with a crisis comparable to the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II. The very survival of the nation will almost certainly be at stake.[ix]

Strauss and Howe saw the United States of that time (1997) in the Third Turning, “midway through an Unraveling”:

America feels like it’s unraveling. Although we live in an era of relative peace and comfort, we have settled into a mood of pessimism about the long-term future, fearful that our superpower nation is somehow rotting from within.

The next Fourth Turning is due to begin shortly after the new millennium.… Real hardship will beset the land, with severe distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation, and empire.…

The very survival of the nation will feel at stake.

Sometime before the [zeitgeist] year 2025, America will pass through a great gate in history, commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression and World War II.

The risk of catastrophe will be very high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule.[x]

What did Strauss and Howe see coming? The same as George Orwell—and the Bible—predicted, and we will get into it in the next entry.
