Edgar Cayce was an American prophet who was able to make predictions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while in a trance. A biographer gave him the nickname, “The Sleeping Prophet.” Here are the top ten prophecies that Edgar Cayce was able to accurately predict.
10. Deaths of 2 Presidents
In 1939, Edgar Cayce predicted the deaths of two presidents, saying: “You are to have turmoil — you are to have strife between capital and labor. You are to have a division in your own land, before you have the second of the Presidents that next will not live through his office … a mob rule!”. Two Presidents indeed died: 1) FDR in 1945 and 2) JFK in 1963. FDR died of a stroke whilst completing his 3rd term in office. JFK was assassinated by an unknown assailant in Dallas, TX on November 22, 1963.
9. The Collapse of the Soviet Union
Edgar Cayce also predicted the fall of communism and the collapse of the Soviet Union way before it took place in 1991. He said: “[Through Russia], comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism — no! But freedom — freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.” In the late 1980s, Soviet Union acquired a more liberal and open President, Mikhail Gorbachev, who enacted two policies that made way for the disintegration: 1) Glostnost and 2) Perestroika.
8. The Stock Market Crash of 1929
In 1924, Cayce was able to foresee the Stock Market crash of 1929 and also taught his clients to prepare for the crash and how to play the bull market. His clients did not listen to him and lost all they had when the Stock Market crashed and suffered during the ensuing Great Depression.
7. Big Revolutions
Edgar Cayce most famously predicted in March 1935 that many foreign states would be engulfed in revolutions unless there was more spiritual attitude raised in groups. In 1936, the Spanish Civil War broke out, Japan invaded China, Italy attacked and colonized Ethiopia, and Joseph Stalin elevated the Great Purges throughout the Soviet Union.
6. The Rise of Adolf Hitler
Not much to predict there because Hitler was already a political figure by that time. Edgar Cayce also predicted in January 1934 that Adolf Hitler would rise in power to reign over Germany. Cayce stated that “imperialism is entering.” Then, in August 1935, he predicted Hitler would remain in power until it will “come as an overthrow or an outside war.”
5. The Creation of Jewish State of Israel
Cayce predicted in 1932 that the Jews would return to their homeland (Israel) and told the Jewish people to regard the anti-Semitism in Europe as the time to fulfill the biblical prophecy for them to return. His prophecy was fulfilled in 1948 when Israel became an independent state. Unfortunately, the warning did not come soon enough – the Holocaust took place between 1941 and 1945 and murdered over 6 million Jews.
4. Russo-American Alliance
During the time of the WWII and rising tensions between Stalin and FDR, Edgar Cayce also envisioned that Russia would one day be an ally of the United States. He said: “…for changes are coming, this may be sure — an evolution or Revolution in the ideas of religious thought. The basis of it for the world will eventually come out of Russia. Not communism, no! But rather that which is the basis of the same as the Christ taught — his kind of communism.” In 1991, his prophecy was fulfilled. Francis Fukuyama wrote a whole book about this phenomena called – “The End of History”.
3. Global Warming
Cayce also predicted that there will be a shifting of the poles so that where there was once a cold climate will become warmer and the semitropical will become the more tropical. That sounds so much like Global Warming and what’s happening in the Arctic now.
2. 2004 Earthquake and Tsunami on Boxing Day
Edgar Cayce also accurately predicted the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean volcano eruption and ensuing tsunamis off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia in 1937. Over 230,000 people in fourteen countries were killed during these devastating natural disasters.
1. His Own Death
He was like Mark Twain. Mark Twain also predicted his own demise. On January 1, 1945, he predicted that he would die in 4 days. On January 3, 1945, he had a stroke and died shortly after. He was buried the next day as per his predictions. Cayce always believed that it would be bad luck to have more than two visions a day, but always ignored his intuitions.
