The more I think about all of this, the more uncertain I am! For example:
"And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" - Matt. 25:30
Here "darkness" can also be rendered "space," and we know that NASA is always whining (whining = complaining = crying = "weeping") about their budget. Is this therefore perhaps a prophecy?
Is there also not a prayer in the Orthodox tradition which says:
"Again we pray that this sacred monastery (or this city). and every monastery, city, town, and every country may be preserved from famine, pestilence, earthquake, flood, fire, the sword, the invasion of aliens
, and civil war; that our good and man-loving God may be gracious and favorable, that He may turn away all the wrath stirred up against us, and deliver us from His righteousness which hangeth over us, and have mercy on us."
