The Christian Bible gives many predictions which tell clearly and graphically of the "Final Day of Judgment", the "Second Coming of The Christ" and the "Golden Age of a Thousand Years of Peace" to follow.
The 'Day of Judgment' is traditionally divided into several different sequences, starting with the Rapture in which those who are "just and faithful to the ways of the Lord" are lifted up to the Heavens to avoid the Tribulation which follows. The next phase will be of the Wrath of the Lord descending upon the Earth in a great cleansing of the planet and those remaining on it who have failed the Final Judgment of God. A small Remnant of those who live through the initial Tribulation and thereby repent and learn to change their ways, may possibly survive the surface turmoil by going into underground caverns.
Then begins the New Millennium, the 1,000-year Day of the Lord, with the return of The Christ to Earth as the Prince of Peace, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Isaiah describes the Tribulation graphically in the Old Testament:
"Behold the day of the Lord cometh cruel both with wrath and fierce anger to lay the Land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of Heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the Sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the Moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the World for their evil and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the Terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man the Golden Wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the Heavens, and the Earth shall remove out of her place." Isaiah 13: 9-13
The New Testament gives four major prophecies of the Final Day of Judgment and the Second Coming of The Christ: from the Apostles Mark, Luke and Matthew, and the Book of Revelations by St. John of the Island of Patmos.
In the Gospel according to St Luke, Jesus speaks of the 'Signs before the End' and the Second Coming:
"The days will come, in which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from Heaven.
And there shall be signs in the Sun, and in the Moon, and in the stars; and upon the Earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the Earth: for the powers of Heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." Luke 21: 6, 10, 25-28
Likewise from St Matthew:
"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the Angels of Heaven, but my Father only." Matthew 24: 21-22; 29, 36
In the Book of Revelations, St John the Divine was given a vision in which a High Angel broke seven seals, each containing a revelation, a future vision:
"And I beheld when he had opened the Sixth Seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; and the stars of Heaven fell unto the Earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
And the Heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
And when he had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in Heaven. And I saw the Seven Angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
The first Angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the Earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
And the second Angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
And the third Angel sounded, and there fell a great star from Heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
And the seventh Angel sounded; and there were great voices in Heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever." Revelation 6:12-14; 8:1-2 & 7-11; 11:15
The Buddhist tradition also foretells the end of the present civilization 2,500 years after the birth of the Buddha, at which time mankind will be redeemed by Maitreya, the future Buddha. The exact birth year of the Buddha is not known, but the earliest of several dates is 566 BC, thus confirming the timing of the predicted changes to occur at the end of the 20th Century.
In the early 1830s the Church of the Latter Day Saints was founded on the prophecies given to Joseph Smith by the Angelic Being Moroni, and on Smith's subsequent discovery, under Moroni's direction, of buried golden tablets inscribed with much ancient wisdom which was to become 'The Book of Mormon'.
The Mormon teachings repeat the Biblical warnings of "great judgments which were coming upon the Earth, with great desolations by famine, sword, and pestilence...
And when that day shall come they shall be visited of the Lord of Hosts, with thunder and with earthquake, and with a great noise, and with storm, and with tempest, and with the flame of devouring fire."
One of the best known of more recent psychics and clairvoyants is Edgar Cayce, who between 1901 and 1945 gave thousands of trance 'readings'. Cayce became well known for his trance diagnoses of illnesses and the 'miracle' cures later documented and confirmed by medical science. He also gave many predictions of future events which proved unusually accurate. For the latter half of the twentieth century he predicted earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and catastrophic changes to the Earth's surface:
"The Earth will be broken up in many places. The early portion will see a change in the physical aspect of the West Coast of America. There will be open waters appearing in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be new lands seen off the Caribbean Sea, and dry land will appear. South America shall be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end, and in the Antarctic off Tierra del Fuego LAND, and a strait with rushing waters..." (3976-15, Jan 19, 1934)
"The Earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the East coast of America..." (3976-15, Jan 19, 1934)
"There will be upheavals in the Arctic and the Antarctic that will make for the eruptions of volcanoes in the Torrid areas, and there will then be the shifting of the poles - so that where there have been frigid or semi-tropical areas, these will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow..." (3976-15, Jan 19, 1934)
"In the next few years, lands will appear in the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific. And what is the coastline now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean... Portions of the now East coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear... while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia, these will disappear." (1152-11, Aug 13, 1941)
Cayce also refers to ancient records of Atlantis hidden underground in a secret chamber near the Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, covering the entire history of mankind from pre-Egypt to the end of the 20th Century - which is, said Cayce, "that period when there is to be the change in the Earth's position, and the return of the Great Initiate to that and other lands for the folding up of those prophecies that are depicted there."

As we consider the possibility and the implications of these Earth Changes, we may be quite certain that physical changes of enormous magnitude have already occurred many times during Planet Earth's long history.
