I personally am not into Nostradamus at all. But after reading an article about the so-called prediction of last Tuesday’s events, and somebody mention something happening in New York City 2001 back when I was in High school in 1999, I remembered what they were saying, so I was put in shock. So I decided to do some research to see if maybe the prophecy could be true or untrue, because I know for a fact, that since Nostradamus wrote the prophecies in numerous languages, that they could have been misread, and maybe it could be a lie and meaning something else. I have spent 3 hours online today doing research, and I found out that the Nostradamus prediction of 9/11 sent out on the Internet have been altered. People adding their own words to it, or changing it to mean what happened 9/11 and taking other prophecies and combining them. Here’s what those prophecies passing around on the Internet might look like (in “is the so-called prophecy):
“In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
Two brothers torn apart by Chaos,
while the fortress endures,
the great leader will succumb,
The third big war will begin when the big city is burning”
But of course anyone who knows that Nostradamus died in 1566, knows that for a fact that Nostradamus couldn’t have wrote that in 1654. How could he when he is dead? So that wasn’t his writing. So it’s a fake. That isn’t all. Here’s Another fake:
“On the 11th day of the 9 month,
two metal birds will crash into two tall statues
in the new city,
and the world will end soon after.”
When I was doing my research, I found that this was all bogus. A more enhanced version of the above was floating around on the net:
“And Nostradamus predicted this (who knows how long ago):
In the year of the new century and nine months,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror.
The sky will burn at forty-five degrees.
Fire approaches the great new city
In the city of York there will be a great collapse,
2 twin brothers torn apart by chaos
while the fortress falls;
the great leader will succumb;
third big war will begin when the big city is burning”
My research strictly said this wasn’t true. The theories people think is that 45 degrees is the position the place is at on the globe. It couldn’t be New York, because I read in some more research that New York sits on 40 degrees. But the exact location is 40.5 degrees. Coincidence? I think so. It also says that the city is burning. The whole city is burning. I don’t know. The whole city isn’t burning at all. Just the world trade center.
I am scared that I think the war we are about to go into is going to be the beginning of Armageddon because people have always stated that the war of Armageddon is a different kind of war. And if it is the war of Armageddon, I was told by a real religious person that I work with that it would be peace worldwide at the end of it.
According to what the news has been saying is that Bush is declaring war against all of the terrorists worldwide. And that he was gonna rid the world of all evil. I don’t know if I believe in predictions, ghosts, or aliens at all because of the fact that it all is a big mystery. Those mysteries remain the biggest mystery in the world along with the mystery of God.
I heard somewhere that the Antichrist that comes back in the book of revelation is the 3rd Antichrist, here is an unaltered Nostradamus prophecy of the 3 Antichrists. I’m not sure if they were unaltered or not, but I found out through my research that the article I got these prophecies from was a paper a college student did back in 1993. I’m not gonna copy the whole article, just the prophecies, and who they are thought to be. If you want to read the whole article go to: http://boisdarc.tamucommerce.edu/www/w/willmc/nostra.htm.
The first Antichrist prophecy:
An Emperor shall be born near Italy.
Who shall cost the Empire dear,
They shall say, with what people he keeps company
He shall be found less a Prince than a butcher.
From a simple soldier he will rise to the empire,
From the short robe he will attain the long.
Great swarms of bees shall arise.
A great troop shall come through Russia.
The destroyer shall ruin a city.
The rear guard will make defense.
The exhausted ones will die in the white territory.
The great Empire will soon be exchanged for a small place.
Which will soon begin to grow.
A small place of tiny area in the middle of which
He will come to lay down his scepter.
The captive prince, conquered, is sent to Elba;
He will sail across the Gulf of Genoa to Marseilles.
By a great effort of the foreign forces he is overcome,
Though he escaped the fire, his bees yield blood by the barrel.
(This is supposedly the Emperor Napoleon.)
The Second Antichrist prophecy:
Out of the deepest part of the west of Europe,
From poor people a young child shall be born,
Who with his tongue shall seduce many people,
His fame shall increase in the Eastern Kingdom.
He shall come to tyrannize the land.
He shall raise up a hatred that had long been dormant.
The child of Germany observes no law.
Cries, and tears, fire, blood, and battle.
A captain of Germany shall come to yield himself by false hope,
So that his revolt shall cause great bloodshed.
Beasts wild with hunger will cross the rivers
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister
Near the Rhine from the Austrian Mountains
Will be born a great man of the people, come too late.
A man who will defend Poland and Hungary
And whose fate will never be certain
(This is supposedly referring to Adolf Hitler, dictator of Germany to WW2. The name being predicted as to be “Hister” was off by a letter or 2!!!)
Now the most shocking, the 3rd predicted antichrist. According to Nostradamus, the 1st two were predicted to be evil. Which they were. The 3rd was predicted to be more evil than the first 2 by Nostradamus:
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.
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.
The war will last seven and twenty years
The sky will burn at forty-five degrees.
Fire approaches the great new city
By fire he will destroy their city,
A cold and cruel heart,
Blood will pour,
Mercy to none
When those of the Northern Pole are united,
In the East will be great fear and dread…
One day the two great leaders will be friends;
Their great powers will be seen to grow.
The New Land will be at the height of its power:
To the man of blood the number is reported
This is first believed to be Sadaam Hussein. But no one’s for sure. Another theory (one I came up with) is it be the culprit behind last Tuesday’s events, Osama Bin Ladin. The terrorist in Afghanistan. He was born in Saudi Arabia!!! The person behind the worst event to ever happen in the USA. The prophecy states the war starts in July, 1999 in Europe. Was there any events that happened in Europe in July 1999? I don’t know because I wasn’t paying much attention to the news at that time. It also states that the war will last 7 and 20 years. This could mean “between 7 and 20 years.” According to the book of revelation, the war of Armageddon lasts for 7 years. According to president Bush the war we’re going into can last years. It also states that the sky will burn at 45 degrees and fire approaches the great new city. Supposedly “new” is not referring to a new city, but to a city that has the word “new” in it. They say it’s New York City. But 45 degrees is inaccurate, because according to my research, New York doesn’t lie on 45 degrees. But it does lie on 40.5 degrees!!! The fire that approached could be the fire that occurred after the twin towers fell down. The next phrase I don’t know about. A fire didn’t destroy the city. He did destroy the hearts of America though, but we got back up on our feet. He does have a cold and cruel heart, there were a lot of murders in the plane wrecks that day. That’s why they say it was worse than pearl harbor. The line “Mercy to none” I can’t really come up with a theory for. Bush isn’t wanting to show mercy to any terrorist. He is wanting to rid the world of terrorists and evil. I think that’s what it means. The last phrase I don’t know anything about but it could be the future. But one thing I know is that Nostradamus didn’t do his predictions from the bible he did them from his head. And apparently a lot of his predictions have actually occurred but than a lot of them haven’t.
Did Nostradamus predict any of these events? Is this “New War” against terrorists the beginning of the end (ie, the 7 year war of armegeddon read about in the book of revelation)? They say the world will end or begin to end when there’s no fighting in the world, and everybody gets along.
Bush was saying he’s wanting to rid the world of Terrorism and evil. Could this in fact be the time we were all waiting for? The time we were all hoping we wouldn’t be around to see? The time of Armegeddon?
Another thing to think about: I heard somewhere that every 1000 years something religious happens.
1000 years and Noah’s ark
1000 years (can’t remember this event, but I heard it somewhere)
1000 years and Jesus Christ
1000 years and Christian Crusades
1000 years from than is the year 2001. This year.
On another note, the middle east have been in a religious war for quite some time, and the war of Armageddon happens at a time when the world is full of different religions and beliefs, there would be a lot of violence going on before hand, and you do not see the war coming. there have been a lot of violence in the past 10 years, all kinds of religious beliefs in USA and the rest of the world, and we didn’t see what happened last Tuesday coming at all.
The president also said to prepare for the worst. That’s what they always said about the beginning of Armageddon to prepare for the worst.
Could this really be the end of the world as we know it? Should the people straying away from God get back into church? I think so, which means that I should.
I AM NOT a prophet. I cannot foresee or predict the future at all. I can tell you one thing and it probably won’t happen. I just believe this because of what I have read, and heard about in the news all week, and what I heard 2 years ago and what not. But I feel, within my heart and soul, that this is it!!! The big one!!!! The war of all wars!!! World War 3!!! The war of Armegeddon(someone on CNN today, some military person, said that he called it ww3, even though it isn’t countries against countries, it’s countries against people. but since it’s against a group of people world wide and the countries, it should be known as a world war. World War 3!!! As the saying goes “the 3rd time’s the charm” which would mean “the 3rd time’s the charm for world peace!”
I think it’s really time to prepare for the worst. I was talking to some people at work last night, and they believe the same way. That this is the Armageddon. And if it isn’t, it’s the beginning of the Armageddon.
My Mom and I were talking about Tuesday’s events 3 days ago and we weren’t talking about the religious aspect of it. But she did say that Tuesday’s events we never thought we’d see in our lifetime. What is the main thing people think they won’t see in their lifetime? The battle of Armageddon the end of the world.
