Nostradamus His Predictionsabracad, · Categories: externally authored, nostradamus
Just about everyone has heard of Nostradamus, the man who made all those famous predictions about 500 years ago. Nostradamus (Michele de Nostradame) was born in Saint Remi, southern France in 1503 and was raised as a Roman Catholic. He was a French doctor and astrologer. Nostradamus was educated as a physician and was noted for using innovative methods to treat victims of the bubonic plagues in the 16Th century. Nostradamus's reliance on sanitary precautions aided his growing renown as a doctor. His use of innovative methods of treatment and his success in curing extremely ill patients earned him a reputation as a specially gifted healer. Unfortunately Nostradamus lost his wife and two sons to the plague. Nostradamus also received a broad religious education. He studied ancient history and the occult including the beliefs and religions of ancient Babylon.
Nostradamus is perhaps the most famous scryer, which means to practice crystal gazing. He is believed to have employed a small bowl of water set upon a brass tripod as a scrying tool into which he gazed and received images of future events. Nostradamus is said to have anointed himself with water before going to work.
He is most noted for his prophecies and predictions. Nostradamus wrote 1,000 quatrains (four lines of verse) that he divided into 10 sections called Centuries in 1555. They were commonly numbered by roman numerals I to X. The Centuries were written as a collection of prophetic quatrains with no chronological order, which has inspired his followers to rearrange them.
Nostradamus wrote in early modern French, with a mixture of archaic words derived from Latin and Greek. He always concealed his meaning in anagrams, symbolism, and mythological allusions. He explains that this was done to avoid persecution from the Inquisition. Nostradamus is not known for his cheery prophecies. He used an ancient practice of divination which can be traced back to Ancient Babylon. It is said he also used ancient, dark arts to "conjure" a frightening Spiritual Entity who gave him his visions into the future. Nostradamus deliberately obscures the name of this entity because he knows it could be dangerous if he was discovered by the witch hunters of his day. Nostradamus predicts details of unfolding events that are far too close to be coincidence, yet they would have made no sense whatsoever when first published.
He is believed by some to have predicted many great events in history, including the rise and fall of Napoleon and Hitler, the bombing of Hiroshima and the assassination of US president John F.Kennedy. Nostradamus predicted that the US would go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq. He also predicted the hunt for Bin Laden, and that this would escalate into World War III. He also seemed to have predicted Nuclear War in this decade, sometime between 1999 AD and 2012 AD. Nostradamus does not predict that the earth will be wiped out.
Nostradamus names three antichrists who will wreak havoc on the world. The first antichrist is Napoleon, the second is Hitler and the third antichrist as MABUS, the name for an Arabic Terrorist who will use a nuclear weapon against the west. He wrote that the third antichrist would come from a region "east of the Black Sea". Nostradamus wrote: The eastern man will come forth from his seat and cross the Apennines to France. Now what this means no one knows. He also wrote of the coming of an Avatar, a World Teacher, who will save the world.
Nostradamus made many predictions about a Comet or Comet Planet called Nibiru that will pass earth soon after the year 2000 AD and would trigger global destruction. he says that the comet would be visible to earth for seven days. He has many quatrains about an asteroid impact to the sea. Nostradamus stated, in plain French that his prophecies would extend to the year 3797. Nostradamus attributed his gift of prophecy to inspiration and divine revelation, and continual calculations and goes on to say that events can be foretold naturally by the heavenly bodies and by the spirit of prophecy. Nostradamus died in 1566 and his most popular work was Les Propheties. Let's only hope that his works were only prophecies and nothing more.
