Before getting too heavy into this entry, I feel I must assure the reader that this is not a presentation of predictions. Rather, it is a presentation of possibilities. There are things, some of which included here, we should absolutely keep our eye on. There are things history can teach us as we move forward into the future. Time itself is a straight line, yet events seem to be cyclical. Events don’t always happen in the same way every time, yet there is usually enough commonality to give us a fair warning of what may be ahead. It is also difficult to pin down an exact date, or even an exact year, for any possibility of prophecy not clearly laid out in Scripture. In short, we may not know the day of certain events, but we might be able to discern the season.

In researching for this series, an anomaly kept coming up. Normally this type of research would not lead to this kind of thing, but there it was, time and time again—so much so, in fact, that I began to feel it shouldn’t be ignored. I even went as far as to ask other colleagues and  researcher friends if anything similar was coming up in their various fields. Too many times to be shrugged off as mere coincidence, their answer was yes. Yet, when dates start coming up, it is difficult to know exactly how to present the information, or whether to even present it at all to the public. Speaking for myself, I would never want to lead someone to believe that I have some special revelation if there is even the slightest chance that it could all just be coincidence. Therefore, I ask the reader in going forward to keep in mind that I am presenting merely possibilities, not predictions. I stand behind my research, of course, and believe that what is presented here could happen. However, something entirely different, or nothing at all, might happen instead. I will go through my evidence to show why I believe certain events in the coming years are possible, yet ultimately, it is up to the reader to decide for himself or herself.

Prophecy and predictions are tricky. That why it is usually best to stay away from predictions and do nothing more than speculate about prophecy. Interpreting Bible prophecy, deciphering possible hidden meanings in the text, and applying it all to our current time provides ample room for mistakes, miscalculations, and incorrect speculation. We see it all the time on social media. For example, how many times have YouTube or Facebook told us a comet was going to hit the Earth imminently? Or that NASA has said we will experience an extended time of total darkness across the planet? How many times have Bible verses been used to support these claims, only to be proven wrong time and time again? Then, after a few months, a new threat to the world and humanity comes up. It seems we go through this cycle from various click-bait articles every couple of months or so.

Now, of course, I’m not saying there will never be a time of literal darkness or a time when something will collide with the Earth. Bible prophecy, scientific probabilities, and even plain old common sense seems to say these things will happen eventually. However, I don’t believe any evidence suggests this will happen without other prophecies needing to be fulfilled first. The main point is that we all, myself included, need to be careful with so-called prophecies on social media and other areas of our modern world. It is far too easy to be led astray these days.

All that said, I absolutely do believe real prophecy is being fulfilled in our day. I do believe major events are happening and, if we pay attention, we will have a better chance of being prepared for what’s ahead. This doesn’t only include physical preparedness, but mental, emotional, and spiritual preparedness as well. In short, it’s not about what we may know; it’s all about how we use it.

A Surprising and Obscure Connection

There seems to be something strange looming between now and the year Zeitgeist 2025. One piece of this puzzle came while I was reading the extraordinary book What Dwells Beyond: The Bible Believer’s Handbook to Understanding Life in the Universe by the amazingly talented biblical researcher Jeffrey W. Mardis. Actually, here is a bit of SkyWatchTV and Defender Publishing trivia: Jeffrey is not only a phenomenal researcher, he is also the talent behind many of Defender Publishing’s book covers. Jeffrey is a truly gifted individual in all respects.

In chapter 2 of What Dwells Beyond, Mardis makes an interesting connection. He shows how certain significant events in Israel’s history seem to correspond to events reigniting the idea of alien life elsewhere in the universe. For example, in 600 B.C. (approximately), Nebuchadnezzar burned Jerusalem to the ground. At this same time, a curious belief called Cosmic Pluralism began. Cosmic Pluralism is a term used to describe the existence of more than one planet (usually hundreds or millions of planets) populated with intelligent life.

In A.D. 70, Rome burned Jerusalem to the ground. In the same year, the famous philosopher Plutarch wrote in his De Facie in Orbe Lunae (On the Face in the Moon): “The men on the moon, if they do exist, are slight of body and capable of being nourished.”[i]

What makes this quote so important is that Plutarch was the last major philosopher to seriously comment on Cosmic Pluralism before it was revived in the Middle Ages.

There was a third major connection between Cosmic Plurality and significant events in Israel. Modern ufology and the rise of aliens in the public mind began in 1947 with the UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico. One year later, in 1948, Israel became a nation again. As Mardis admits in his book, this could be all coincidence. Neither Jeffrey Mardis nor I would want to claim that a connection exists none is to be seen. However, it does seem odd that these two subjects in history (noteworthy events in Israel’s history and Cosmic Plurality) seem to correspond.

Connections Today Are Stronger and More Numerous

When we entered the beginning of 2017, we were reminded of a major event in Israel’s history. One hundred years prior, in 1917, the Balfour Declaration was written. The Balfour Declaration was a letter dated November 2, 1917, from Arthur James Balfour (the United Kingdom’s foreign secretary) to Walter Rothschild (a leader of the British Jewish Community) for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. Strangely enough, less than a month earlier (October 13) during this same year was the famous Fatima sighting. At the time, it was publicized as an appearance of Mary, the mother of Jesus. However, when reading through the eyewitness accounts of what would be called the “Miracle of the Sun,” it becomes apparent that this was a sighting of a UFO.[ii] Also in 1917, during World War I, there were numerous reports of UFOs from soldiers on all battle fronts. In fact, it was even reported that the German pilot Manfred Freiherr (better known as the Red Baron), believed he shot down a UFO over Belgium in the spring of 1917.[iii]

The Balfour Declaration was actually not the first step in efforts toward establishing a home for the Jewish people. In 1897 (120 years ago from 2017), the First Zionist Congress was held in Basel, Switzerland, by Theodor Herzl, the founder of the modern Zionist movement, and the Basel Declaration was submitted. It was stated: “Zionism seeks to establish a home for the Jewish people in Palestine secured under public law.” The new program, which came to be known as the Basel Program, was adopted under the following terms:[iv]

Zionism aims at establishing for the Jewish people a publicly and legally assured home in Palestine. For the attainment of this purpose, the Congress considers the following means serviceable:

  1. The promotion of the settlement of Jewish agriculturists, artisans, and tradesmen in Palestine.
  2. The federation of all Jews into local or general groups, according to the laws of the various countries.
  3. The strengthening of the Jewish feeling and consciousness.
  4. Preparatory steps for the attainment of those governmental grants which are necessary to the achievement of the Zionist purpose.

During this same year, possibly the most famous UFO incident besides Roswell occurred. The Aurora UFO incident reportedly happened on April 17, 1897. Locals claimed a UFO crashed on a farm near Aurora, Texas, and is claimed to have resulted in the death of the alien craft’s pilot. The alien’s body is allegedly buried in an unmarked grave at the local cemetery.

A bit more recently, in 1977, Menachin Begin became the prime minister of Israel, and in 1978 he signed the Camp David Peace Accords with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. This was facilitated by President Jimmy Carter. The Camp David Peace Accords are rich with history of what they did to/for Israel, Egypt, America, and other nations. It was a major turning point in Israel’s history.

Oddly, 1977 and 1978 were also important years in modern ufology. The government of Brazil has released declassified security files pertaining to Operation Saucer, a top-secret investigation by the Fuerza Aerea Brasileira into the 1977 UFO flap in the northern state of Para. Beginning in October of 1977 and lasting through the first half of 1978, the city Colares of the Brazilian state of Para underwent extreme UFO and alien activity, even to the point of being called a UFO invasion by the newspaper O Liberal.[v] This is now known as the Colares UFO Flap.

To recap, the first attempt to make Israel a home for the Jewish people occurred 120 years ago, which is the same time as the Aurora UFO incident. One hundred years ago, the Balfour Declaration was submitted, which was the same year as the Fatima sighting and also when the Red Baron believed he shot down a UFO. Seventy years ago, in 1947, the UFO crash of Roswell happened. Around that same time in 1948, Israel became a nation again. Adding to all of this, fifty years ago from 2017 was the Six Day War (or Third Arab-Israeli War) of 1967, in which Israel defended against the invading armies of surrounding nations. Strangely enough, at that same time, the most intensive and long-lasting UFO sighting wave of all time occurred.[vi] Taking all this into account, the near future year 2025 may witness significant Israel/UFO history converging.

Biblical Year Cycles of High Strangeness

A strange issue comes up when we consider these numbers in a biblical context. In the words of Jesus Christ, Matthew 24:32–34 states:

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

It is widely believed within biblical eschatology that the fig tree is a representation of Israel. This also leads us to wonder how long, according to the Bible, is a generation? There are a few different possibilities. Even more, there are other number and time cycles that seem to correspond with this type of study.

The first we can look at is 120 years. In Genesis 6:3 (KJV), God said: “My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”

A popular interpretation of this says that God was referring to the Flood. It is believed He was saying He would not always put up with what was going on in the world, but He would for only another 120 years. It would be then when God would send the Flood.

Next we can look at one hundred years. In Genesis 15:13–16, God tells Abram that his descendants will be afflicted for four hundred years in a land that is not their own (Egypt). It then says in the fourth generation that they shall return to their own land. In this instance, to know how long a generation is, we only have to divide four hundred years by four generations. We are then left with a generation equalling one hundred years in this context.

The next is seventy years. Psalm 90:10 (NKJV) states: “The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”

Some have interpreted this to mean that one candidate for a biblical generation is seventy years (or possibly even eighty).

Next up is fifty years. Leviticus 25:8–17 tells us about the seven cycles of seven years (forty-nine years) and the Jubilee year (fiftieth year) in ancient Israel. The Jubilee year was basically a big reset button. The land was not to be sown or reaped. Slaves and prisoners were freed. Debts were forgiven.

Lastly, we can look at forty years. There are a lot of significant things we can point to concerning a period of forty years, but more specifically, consider the words of the Lord in Psalm 95:10, which states: Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:”

This points back to the forty-year wandering in the wilderness of Moses and the children of Israel. Numbers 32:13 states:

And the Lord’s anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the Lord, was consumed.

Putting It All Together

The odd thing about all these numbers and cycles (of which there are many others, but for the purposes of this article, the ones listed will suffice) is that we can trace every one  back through Israel’s history and see significant simultaneous events concerning UFOs and Israel, leading us to the present time (counting down to Zeitgeist 2025?)

120 years ago (1897) – Aurora UFO/First Zionist Congress

100 years ago (1917) – Fatima UFO/Balfour Declaration

70 years ago (1947–48) – Roswell UFO crash/Israel becomes a nation

50 years ago (1967) – UFO Wave/Israel defends Jerusalem in the Six Day War

40 year ago (1977–78) – Colares UFO Flap/Camp David Peace Accords



As stated earlier, there are more curious dates involving biblical year cycles, the history of Israel, and the UFO phenomenon (promoting Cosmic Plurality). However, for this article, this is enough to get the point across. Also, given the fact that Israel operates on a slightly different calendar than we do in America, pinpointing events to the exact date or even year can prove nearly impossible.

All these facts and more seem to be pointing to the year 2025 as a significant time in the near future. It would seem, if history repeats itself, that we might see a major event in Israel while, at the same time, we will see a major event promoting the idea of Cosmic Plurality. What this might be, one can only speculate. Could it be a war igniting in the Middle East involving Israel? Could an official disclosure event of UFO knowledge from the government occur? Might there be another major UFO sighting, or something even bigger?

As I said at the beginning of this entry, my purpose for writing is not to convince you, the reader, of anything. My purpose is to present you with information and possible connections (all of which admittedly could be a series of coincidences) and allow you to dig into the research further and make up your own mind. At the very least, it is a good idea to be prepared just in case. It is better to be prepared and not need it than to be unprepared and desperately need to have been.
