Edgar Cayce, also known as "The Sleeping Prophet", was born on March 18th, 1877, near Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Edgar Cayce died at the age of 67, on January 3rd, 1945.

Cayce was raised in the Christian Church, which was an offshoot of Presbterianism. He grew to have a great love of the Bible and when he received his own Bible at the age of ten, he resolved to read the Bible once through for each year he was alive. This love of the Bible was a main focal point for his entire life.

Cayce had never asked to be a prophet. It came upon him unexpectedly once when he was hypnotized. He had lost the use of his voice and his doctors we unable to help him. A friend suggesting asking his subconscious what was causing the problem.

Cayce would lie down and put himself into a trance state. While in this trance state he would not remember anything that he had said. His wife would ask him questions and he would give the answers, while in trance. A scribe would keep a record. In the beginning people came to him for diagnosis for ailments that their doctors could not diagnose. Cayce would be able to not only give a diagnosis, but would be able to give prescriptions for treatments.

Cayce has given over 30,000 diagnosis with quite incredible accuracy. He only used his ability to prescribe for the sick or to give spiritual and vocational advice, when asked so specifically. He never sought fame or appeared publicly. He did not seek wealth. His economic standing was often quite precarious and never rose above that of modest security.

In 1934, Cayce predicted the beginning and end of World War II many years before it happened. He predicted the end of Communism, and that Russia would be born again. He also saw a strong religious movement coming out of Russia. A less plausible prediction, however, was that China will become the new "cradle of christianity".

Like many Christian prophets, Cayce maintained that "the day of reckoning" was at hand. He predicted the arrival of Armageddon in 1999, followed by a new age and the Second Coming of Christ. He gave a trance "reading" which described a number of quite unimaginable natural catastrophes that would occur at the end of the 20th century.

These included:

A shift in the world's axis around the year 2000 or shortly thereafter, leading to:

Inundations of many coastal regions, caused by a drop in the landmass of about 30 feet combined with a melting of both polar ice caps, including:

The loss of much of England and Japan.

The flooding of northern Europe, which will happen very rapidly.

New land appearing off the east coast of North America, the so-called "rising of Atlantis".

The widespread destruction in Los Angeles, San Francisco and the destruction of Manhattan and disappearance of New York.

Volcanic eruptions in tropical regions and an increase in Pacific rim volcanic activity.

A general warming of currently cool areas, and cooling of warm areas of the globe.

The following are some answers to exact questions put to Cayce about the Second Coming:

Question: What is meant by "the day of the Lord is near at hand?"

Answer: That as has been promised through the prophets and the sages of old, the time and half time has been and is being fulfilled in this day and generation...

Question: How soon?

Answer: When those that are His have made the way clear, passable, for Him to come.

Question: He said He would come again. What about His Second Coming?

Answer: The time no one knows. Even as He gave, not even the Son Himself. Only the Father. Not until His enemies - and the earth - are wholly in subjection to His will, His power.

Question: Are we entering the period of preparation for His coming?

Answer: Entering the test period, rather.

Question: When Jesus the Christ comes the second time, will He set up His kingdom on earth and will it be an everlasting kingdom?

Answer: Read His promises in that you have written of His words, even as I gave. He shall rule for a thousand years. Then shall Satan be loosed again for a season.
