The Nostradamus Prophecy

Nostradamus, a jew by birth was born in Southwest of France. If he was still alive today, he would have celebrated his birthday, 2 days ago. He was born on December 14th, 1503 & died on July 2nd, 1566. He is probably the most famous non-Biblical individual(some claim him to be a prophet) on earth whose predictions have not failed to baffle the scholars for the last 400 years. Michel de Notredame has made over 1000 predictions of which half of them according to historians have already come true.

He was brought up under the auspices of the Catholic Church. Although being a physician, his real love revolves in the paranormal, clairvoyance & astrology. He became a traveller wandering around Europe after the demise of his wife and 2 children as victims of the Great Plaque.

Nostradamus predicts a priest who becomes the Pope 15 yrs later.
While he was in Italy, he fell to his knees at the feet of a young priest who was walking along the pathway towards him. The priest thought this was a mad man, but then Nostradamus proclaimed, "One day, you would be a Great Man in the Catholic Church. True enough. About 15 years later, the same priest, Felici Peretti was ordained as the Pope Sixtus V.

Why is his prediction often in rhymes & not straight forward?
Nostradamus published the book entitiled "Centuries" in the year 1555 containing 100 poems. Each 4 lines of the poems are called quatrains.

Nostradamus often wrote in curious rhyming riddles which is often laced heavily with symbolism and were often open to interpretation. The reason for his riddles are:-
1. He doesn't want to be accused of witchcraft. To protect himself from the superstitious witch-hunters of the time, he wrote the quatrains in an amalgamation of French, Latin, Greek and anagrams and mixes up these quatrains so that they weren't in chronological order.
2. The readers would be entertained & not too frightened by the weight of what he is saying.

Nostradamus predicted 3 powerful evil dictators whom he referred to as Anti-Christs.

Evil Dictator No. 1
The first among these 3 are thought to be Napolean Bonaparte. Nostradamus describes this 1st "Anti-christ" as an emperor born near Italy. Incidently, Napolean's place of birth was in Corsica, near Italy.

Here goes his quatrain:-

An Emperor will be born near Italy,
who will cost the Empire very dearly,
They will say, when they see his allies,
that he is less a prince than a butcher
(Century 1; Quatrain 60)

Evil Dictator no. 2
Historians agree that the 2nd Antichrist he was refering to was Hitler whom he names him as Hister.

His quatrain goes as follows:-

From the very depths of the West Europe,
a young child will be born of poor people,
he who by his tounge will seduce a great troop,
his fame will increase towards the realm of the east.
(Century 3; Quatrain 35)

Evil Dictator No. 3 ?
Nostradamus describes this as a terrifying one and more evil than the first two even if combined.

From the three water signs will be born a man
who will celebrate Thursday as his feast day.
His renown, praise, rule and power will grow on land and sea,
bringing trouble to the East.
(Century 1; Quatrain 50)

We know Thursdays are special prayer day where Muslims are concerned. In Malaysia, Thursdays are refered to as "Malam Jumaat"meaning the night of Friday. (FYI: It is also the much anticipated day where Muslims will get "pahala"meaning good merits to go to heaven for having sex between husband and wife.)

There are also bad Muslims of the terrorist kind. These Muslims also share the same faith & offer prayers on Thursdays. Could this mean that the Muslim terrorists are the ones Nostradamus refers to as Antichrist? What about Osama bin Laden? Is he still alive or did he die? Nobody has seen his dead body yet. Or perhaps is it deeply buried beneath the earth?

Out of the country of Greater Arabia
Shall be born a strong master of Mohammed,
He will enter Europe wearing a blue turban.
He will be the terror of mankind. Never more horror.

We are aware of Saddam Hussein & the gulf war, the scuds, the patriots, the blazing fire of the oil rigs when he lost the war. But, I don't think he is serious enough to be considered a terror to mankind. We can confidently say these as both his saga & his life ended in the gallows just a few months back. But, what about this blue turban thing?

In the year 1999 and seven months
From the sky will come the great King of Terror.
He will bring back to life the King of the Mongols;
Before and after war reigns.

"From the sky the great King of Terror".... Who brought back to life the King of Mongols? Mongols were known to terrorize, loot, rape women & capture lands. It's 2008 now & almost reaching for 2009. Almost a decade past this prophecy. Before & after 1999, war still continues. Currently, only the Muslim terrorists fit this bill though I am not accusing for these groups have attacked the New York Twin Tower "before" 1999 and the terrorist attacks still plague on different parts of earth 10 years later. In South of Thailand, in a district called Patani, Muslim religious extremists were practically bombing tourist spots in their pursuit for independent Muslim country. In Bali, Indonesia bomb exploded in the Marriot Hotel. Perhaps somebody ought to issue a "Fatwa" (an informed authoritative statement) that the gateway of Heaven no longer is opened for those who "jihad" (martyr). And, of course, soorrrryyy no more virgins waiting in Heaven for people who KILL IN THE NAME OF RELIGION!!!

It is alleged that a lost book of Nostradomous has been found and is being studied by scholars.

I am not sure if the scholars are claiming that in the year 2012 we would have the battle of Armageddon, or the battle of Gog and Magog, or the total END of life on earth.

None of these three events will occur in 2012.

From the end of the tribulation period, the world will continue on through the Seven Last Plagues and the Millennium (a thousand years), to finally be destroyed AFTER the battle of Gog and Magog.

If I would venture a speculation/guess of what COULD happen in 2012 (if the event has not occurred prior to that year) would be the Sixth SEAL appearance of the Lord with power and majesty (Re.6:12-17).

However, the Scriptures do declare we do not know the day or hour.
