Many people believe that the sacred books besides trying to explain the purpose of life, also predict the future. Many times, the future is said to be with much chaos, and catastrophe, resulting in the salvation of a few, and the destruction of many souls.
In the Heaven’s Truth religion (Tenrikyo), we also have a sacred book called the Tip of the Writing Brush (Ofudesaki). This book also explains the purpose of life (to live a joyous life with everyone helping each other). But like the other sacred books, it also predicts the future. But the outcome is not chaos, or the destruction of the world. The outcome is world peace with everyone living the joyous life.
How would this joyous life for all occur? It is predicted that God will begin to work, as he did when he created human beings. The plan is all in the Tip of the Writing Brush. The word Ofudesaki in Japanese can be separated into fude and saki. Fude is translated at a writing brush, and saki is the future. It is a writing brush that predicts the future. The Tip of the Writing Brush is a book that predicts the future; and the future is good for mankind.
