"The Prophecy Book of Jante Raigur"
"The Morning Star Prophecy"
Jante Raigur (pronounced John T. Rye Zhur) was born as Norman Weaver on March 14, 1920 in St. Louis, Missouri. He joined the Army in 1942 and fought in many major campaigns. After the war, he was discharged. But because of his upbringing and his experiences during the war, he was now mentally unstable. He returned to his home in St. Louis and began to preach to his family and friends that he was a prophet. He began making regular predictions of the future, which regularly failed to come true. He blamed this on impurities in the souls of those surrounding him, and he moved to a different part of the city. One night in 1947, while he was sleeping, a name came to Weaver in a dream. The name was Jante Raigur, which means "time climber." He interpreted this to mean one who climbs, in his words "up the ladder of time to see the next level, the future." He believed this to mean him, and he legally changed his name to Jante Raigur.
One particular day in 1953, Raigur was overwhelmed with visions of the future, and he felt compelled to write them down to share with the world. He wrote a book titled "The Prophecy Book of Jante Raigur." It contained over a thousand prophecies. The centerpiece of the book, however, was a prophecy he called "The Morning Star Prophecy," which is given here in its entirety.
There shall be a man called Uiver, because he shall be a weaver of the future.
The Uiver shall bear children, and the Children of Uiver shall bear children.
But these Children shall not know of Uiver, and shall not be called Children of Uiver, but shall be called a different name, as though different people.
These Lost Children of Uiver shall bear children, and their children shall bear children, and so on, and so forth for fifteen generations.
And one day the Lost Children of Uiver shall come to live in The Morning Star.
And they will live there one generation.
Then there will come the time of the Emergence, and a Lost Child of Uiver shall know he is a Child of Uiver.
And He will come to the center of The Morning Star, and The Morning Star will bow to Him.
Jante Raigur wrote his book of prophecies in 1953. Although he wanted to share his visions with the world, he could not get his book published. He managed to save enough money to get one hardcover copy published. It is apparent that when he wrote "The Morning Star Prophecy," he believed himself to be the "man called Uiver." It is clear that the name Uiver is a change in the spelling of his original name, Weaver, especially when one considers that he believed himself a prophet, and Uiver is said to be a weaver of the future. It is interesting to note that he did not change his name to Uiver in an attempt to fulfill the prophecy. One may consider that he may have wanted to set the prophecy in motion before changing his name.
In 1954, Jante Raigur was arrested in the process of raping a 22 year-old woman. At the time of arrest, it is recorded that he kept speaking of "the prophecy." Apparently, he was attempting to impregnate the woman in an attempt to have children. He was convicted and sentenced to prison. In 1956, he was murdered by a fellow inmate.
In 1961, Samuel Weaver changed the spelling of his name to Sahmyuhl Uiver. (Coincidentally, he had never seen his brother's book. He hadn't seen or heard from his brother since 1952.) Five years after he changed his name, Uiver was married and had a child, a girl named Maureen. In 1970, he had a son he named after his father, Richard.
In 1985, the family was in an automobile accident and Richard was killed. Maureen, now 19, had a following out with her father, and eloped with her boyfriend, Mitchell Ingersol. They had three children. Maureen never told her children they had a grandfather, and they never knew her maiden name.
In his lifetime, Jante Raigur made over 20,000 predictions. Only one, "The Morning Star Prophecy," would come true. In the end, Raigur was wrong about only one detail, and that was never part of the prophecy. He assumed that he would be Uiver, when in fact, it was his brother. Although his prophecy was accurate, it was not complete. He ended with a person whom he believed to be one of his descendants achieving power on "The Morning Star." While he correctly assumed that the fulfillment of his prophecy would open a new chapter in the history of humankind, he did not see that it would prove to be one of the darkest.
