Prophecies are basically the prediction of what will happen in future. In the history, there were many people who stated certain prophecies. There was many faulty foretelling of the future by people but only a few hit the nail on the head. Such historical prophecies involve interpretation or revelation of spiritual or religious events to come.
There are remarkable prophecies which definitely leaves us astound. I mean how can a human being be so sure about a future happening? Let us now look at the top 7 famous, almost impossible prophecies that mysteriously came true.
Vespasian And Titus
The Jewish war is the only origination in which this prophecy is mentioned. The Roman commander Vespasian trapped the Jewish commander Josephus during the first Jewish-Roman war of 66-73 AD. Roman commander Vespasian intended to send Josephus to Roman emperor Nero (A.D. 37-68). But to this action, Josephus response was really odd. He stated that he has come as a messenger of great tidings. He was well versed with the laws of Jews and he questioned Vespasian about the existence of Nero and his successors until his own endurance.
Josephus proclaimed that Vespasian is to be Caesar. After stating so Josephus asked Vespasian to bind him and keep him securely with himself. He was so sure of Vespasian to become Roman emperor that he asked to punish himself if this prophecy turns out to be fake. This was quite odd and unusual thing to suggest as Vespasian and his son Titus were not the members of the Julio-Claudian Dynasty.
But on 9th June 68 AD existing Roman emperor Nero committed suicide and Vespasian became the new emperor of Rome and Founded Flavian Dynasty. After this prophecy getting fulfilled in 69 Vespasian released Josephus and granted him Roman Citizenship.
