Sir Isaac Newton is considered to be one of the foremost
scientists of all time. His invaluable contributions to understanding
the universe has given him claim to a unique place in history. Not only
was he an exceptional physicist, outstanding astronomer and mathematician,
he was also a natural philosopher and used his scientific prowess to
decipher the Bible.
Newton was born in Woolsthrope Manor in Lincolnshire, England. According
to the Gregorian calendar, the date of his birth was 4 January 1643
although by the calendar in use at the time of his birth (the Julian
calendar) he was born on Christmas Day 1642. In 1687 he published
Philosophiae Nauralis Principia Mathematica (commonly known as the
Principia), which has come to be known has his most famous work. He
was knighted in 1705 and died in 1727, aged 84, and was buried in
During Sir Isaac Newton’s illustrious life he spent much time
studying the Bible using scientific methodologies to understand and
explain the universal truths contained in it. His research led him
to write millions of words on the topic, but only after his death
in 1733 his only book on the Bible was published, Observations Upon
the Prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St John. Through his
studies he concluded that Christianity lost its divine direction after
the first Council of Nicaea in the 4th century AD, which circulated
incorrect concepts on the nature of Christ.
Following his natural tendency to research and explain topics of
study with a logical and systematic approach, Newton established a
set of standards to interpret the prophetic language of Daniel and
St John based on letting the Scripture reveal and explain itself.
Through the entirety of Observations, Newton sought to understand
the Prophecies taking each word to be literally true without doubting
their validity. Also, he adamantly opposed others using the Prophecies
attempting to predict the future. He wrote in Observations, “The
folly of Interpreters has been, to fortel times and things by this
Prophecy, as if God designed to make them Prophets. By this rashness
they have not only exposed themselves, but brought the Prophecy also
Owing to his work, he unveiled the beginning of an everlasting reign
of the Saints Most High on Earth beginning between the years 2000
and 2050 AD.
Sir Isaac Newton’s interpretation of the Prophecies reveals
that the spiritual path of humankind will again (if not already) veer
back on to the pure path of knowing the universal Truth (or God).
