Countdown to Armageddon
The divine chronology outlined in the Old Testament's 'Book of Revelations' has convinced thousands of Christians that the end of the world is rapidly approaching. This absorbing and startling documentary argues that the signals of Armageddon’s imminent arrival are everywhere.
Incredible High Definition footage of perilous natural disasters and manmade tragedies starkly demonstrates that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse may be closer than we think.
'Countdown to Armageddon' is a documentary film that reviews the history of apocalyptic literature (Armageddon). The documentary features archaeologist/historian Eric H. Cline, Orthodox Christian scholar John McGuckin, televangelist John Hagee, author Tim LaHaye and author Gershom Gorenberg.
Duration: 44 minutes
From the cover:
"The End is Near" is a cry that has echoed throughout human history. Every religion has stories of the end of the world, and believers in every era have prophesized that the time was at hand. So far, these predictions have come to naught, but a rash of unusual events and the rise of fundamental faiths have led to a new golden era of doomsayers.
Asteroids on a collision course with Earth, super volcanoes, global warming, killer viruses--all are potential catastrophes that threaten to wipe out life on our planet. Are these simply natural disasters that have been occurring since time immemorial? Or are these threats terrifying prophesies from the Bible that are at last coming true? Are our fears overblown? Or are the infamous Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse riding among us in a countdown to Armageddon?

The Lost Book of Nostradamus
Could it be that Nostradamus, the "go to" prophet of all time, is reaching forward into the 21st century to give us a last warning? Is it already too late?
In 1994, Italian journalist Enza Massa was at the Italian National Library in Rome conducting research on old texts, when she stumbled upon an unusual find in its stacks; a mysterious manuscript dating to 1629. The name of the book was surprising: NOSTRADAMUS VATINICIA CODE. On the inside of the book was the name of the author, in indelible ink—Michel de Notredame—the prophet Nostradamus. This find was particularly remarkable; the manuscript included over eighty watercolor illustrations that were painted by the master prophet himself. Contained in the pages of the book are cryptic, bizarre images that some say are prophecies of our future. Letters, symbolic objects, banners, candles, crosses, and even a burning tower are all included in the manuscript. Are these images visual manifestations of his quatrains, which extend to the 21st century, as some say? How did this book come to be in the library? Why was this book hidden for over 400 years? And are these images so frightening that Nostradamus deliberately hid them, as some say, until their time was near?
This special will follow the investigative trail of how the manuscript came to be found in the archives, and exactly how it got there. The story will also give new insight into the life of Nostradamus—his relationship with his son, Cesar, and his connection to the Vatican—in particular, Pope Urban VIII, who knew about this manuscript and in whose possession it was for many years.
Whether you are fan of the man or not, these drawings are fascinating!
Runtime 86 minutes

Decoding The Past: The Other Nostradamus
He predicted World War II, the deaths of Presidents and the turmoil of the 1960s. He prophesied that Israel would become a state fifteen years before the event, and foretold the Great Depression. Many of his visions that seemed to pass unfulfilled are now being proven accurate.
His name is Edgar Cayce and to many, he is known as the other Nostradamus. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Cayce was a well-known figure in America, known for his "healing abilities" as well as his prophecies.
Cayce's predictions are documented in the transcriptions of his readings, which he gave until his death in 1945. The Other Nostradamus looks at Cayce's life and prophecies - those that have come true as well as those that have not.
This film examines his life and prophecies

Apocalypse comes from Greek meaning an `unveiling'. The faith of the early Christians, living under persecution, was sustained by the expectation of Christ's imminent second coming.
The greatest printmaking achievement of Dürer's early years was The Apocalypse, a set of 15 woodcuts on the revelations of St John. Telling the story of the end of the world and the coming of the Kingdom of God, this series of large prints displays great imagination and power. The famous series influenced the later treatment of the subject in northern Europe, especially France.

Decoding The Past: Prophecies Of Israel
The Tanakh of the Jews is an acronym that identifies the Hebrew Bible, equivalent to the Old Testament to Christians.
Within the 24 books of the Tanakh (or Mikra as it was called during the period of its recording) are astounding predictions of the future. Many of the prophets who wrote or appeared in the scriptures prophesied about the fate of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
Supported by archival footage and dramatic recreations, on-camera experts representing the three major religions, and secular perspectives, the film explores the most significant of these ancient prophecies.
Are the prophecies real? Are they unfolding before our eyes? Who believes, who doesn't, and why?
Duration: 45 minutes.

History’s Mysteries: Prophecies
Since modern psychics they claimed to see tomorrow just as clear as the rest of us see today.

Since a long time man has sent probes into space to unlock the secrets of the atomic world. Yet one frontier remains an enigma - the challenge of knowing the future. And yet since ancient times a handful of prophets, seers, and oracles have believed they can
see beyond the barrier of time...

Decoding the Past: Mayan Doomsday Prophecy
The world is coming to an end on December 21, 2012!
The ancient Maya made this stunning prediction more than 2,000 years ago. We'll peel back the layers of mystery and examine in detail how the Maya calculated the exact date of doomsday. Journey back to the ancient city of Chichen Itza, the hub of Maya civilization deep in the heart of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, to uncover the truth about this prophecy. The Maya were legendary astronomers and timekeepers - their calendar is more accurate than our own. By tracking the stars and planets they assigned great meaning to astronomical phenomena and made extraordinary predictions based on them - many of which have come true.
Could their doomsday prophecy be one of them? Is it possible that these masters of architecture, technology and hieroglyphics possessed a genuine insight into the future fate of the planet? Or have their prophetic writings been misinterpreted?
In insightful interviews archaeologists, astrologers, and historians speculate on the meaning of the 2012 prophecy. Their answers are as intriguing as the questions.
But I dont think the end will happen on that particular day ...

Secrets of Alchemy - The Great Cross and the End of Time
In this visually compelling and thought-provoking documentary, author and modern-day Indiana Jones, Jay Weidner uncovers some of the deepest secrets of the ancient western tradition of Alchemy - the knowledge of the fatal season of the apocalypse, the end of time and the great and imminent transformation of humanity.
Using the work of the mysterious twentieth century French Alchemist, Fulcanelli, as his foundation, and his discovery of a three hundred fifty year old Alchemical Cross in the South of France, Jay Weidner describes the experiences, insights and powerful evidence that opens the door to a new view of the intimate relationship between myth, history, science and the true destiny of humanity. In doing so, he reveals the ultimate meaning underlying the resurrection of Christ, the message of the Book of the Revelations, the vision of Ezekiel and the Kabbalistic concept of the "Restoration of the World."
Join him on this remarkable adventure as Jay Weidner journeys from the shores of Southern France through Alchemical Europe, Ancient Egypt and Peru, to decode the powerful and haunting message of the Great Cross of Hendaye.

Edgar Cayce: An American Prophet
"Learn to live! Then there is no death, save the transition, when desired. Many live who have never died as yet." - Edgar Cayce
Edgar Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American psychic who channeled answers to questions on subjects such as health, astrology, reincarnation, and Atlantis while in trance. Although Cayce lived before the emergence of the New Age movement, he remains a major influence on its teachings. Cayce is considered by some to be the father of holistic medicine.
Today there are several tens of thousands of Cayce students. Most are located in the United States and Canada, but Edgar Cayce Centers are now found in many other countries. The Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE) is the major organization promoting interest in Cayce.
