Predictive or Prophetic Books?

The Wreck of the Titan or (Futility)- you may have heard of the Titanic-the actual book and not the movie. This novel, written by Morgan Robertson in 1898, had a plot line about a ship called the Titan, said to be unsinkable. It hit an iceberg in the month of April and sank just like the Titanic did in 1912.


The Eyes of Darkness by Dean Koontz. Part of the plot is about the Chinese government creating a virus to use as a biological weapon. The virus is called the Wuhan400. Koontz wrote the novel in 1981.

Rage-a book written by a high school boy named Stephen King under the pseudonym  Richard Bachman. First published in 1977 and later published in a collection called the Bachman Books. The novel is about a school shooting. Because it became associated with true life school shootings in the 80’s and 90’s King allowed the book to go out of print.

Stand on Zanzbar written in 1968 by John Brunner. Within its pages are futuristic occurrences such as personalized, digital avatars used for entertainment, division in religious denomination over issues like abortion, and genetic mapping.

The Last President(or 1900) by Ingersoll Lockwood and written in late 1890s. It has a strangely familiar sounding plot which involves a President of the ‘common man’. He lived on 5th avenue in New York, where Trump Tower is now. What’s more, protests and riots spread across the country because of his Presidency.


The Holy Bible-no, it’s not a novel but it is the greatest literature ever written. Beyond that, the Bible is the most prophetic book that has ever been written. It doesn’t predict because God is the author and He, who is outside of time, sees the end from the beginning.


Though the world has tried to destroy or discredit the Bible it continues to endure and enlighten those who sit in darkness and are seeking for the light. Jesus was the Word made flesh and the light of the world.

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God

John 3:19-21

Don’t be deceived by all the chaos going on in this world. God is still in control. All these things must come to pass according to His Word.. Matthew 24

God, who is outside of time, sees the end from the beginning.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8
