Was Isaac Newton a Seer?

Updated on January 27, 2011

Seer

 With all the talk about the date of the end of the world, I thought of Isaac Newton's prediction the world would not end before 2060, fifty nine years from now.  So is he right?  There have been other dates that have come and gone and the world keeps going on.

Was Isaac Newton a Seer?  By definition a seer is someone who sees, a prophet, a clairvoyant. 

The Man

 Isaac Newton was a scientist that was guided by religion.  The Bible was his greatest passion.  You could say he was fascinated or obsessed with the Bible.  He was God as the master creator.  He tried to discover secret messages in the Bible.

Isaac Newton was born January 4, 1643 and died March 31, 1727.  He excelled in school.  He never married.  While in school he would not take holy orders nor sacrament at the time of his death.

Isaac Newton was a physicist, theologian, mathematician, philosopher, astronomer and alchemist.

Some of his accomplishments:

  • Theory of gravity
  • Theory of color
  • speed of sound
  • Origin of the stars
  • Laws of motion
  • and many others.

Isaac Newton was a genius. His scientific work was a gateway to what we have accomplished today.

Beliefs

 Isaac Newton believed that God chose him for the task of understanding the Bible. Some other beliefs:

  • Worshiping Christ as Gos was a sin
  • Didn't believe Jesus was God.
  • Bible prophecies would not be understood until the end time.
  • Didn't believe in the trinity, devil or immortal soul.

2060

 Isaac Newton said the world would not end before 2060.  He used mathematics and the Book of Daniel to predict the date.  He came up with the date because of all the others saying the time the world would end.  Maybe he knew something no one else did.

Conclusion

 Isaac Newton spent fifty years trying to predict the end of the world. He constantly studied the bible. He was a genius.  He had his own idea of religion and believed he was to decipher the bible.  Did he have an obsession with the bible or was it his calling?  Can anyone predict the end?  Only God knows when.
