Nostradamus predicted the end of the world for the year 3797 and Bible confirms it!
Michel de Notredame (Nostradamus) is clearly the most respect prophet in the world during the last 1,900 years. And this reputation comes for a good reason, since people have found similarities between his predictions and real historical events. However, we must not forget that N. was very keen on Occultism and Astrology, and he was also initiated in Kabbalah; so he used these methods when he wrote his Centuries and Quatrains (chapters and verses). This is the reason why many Christians do not give him much respect. Some Christians may say, that the source of his predictions is Satan himself. However, only few years ago, before this new Millenium, some Christians expected imminent Rapture, Third World War, and the rise of Antichrist for the year 1999 or 2000, and they used Nostradamus to support their belief. Now we know that the end of this present world did not occur in the year 1999, but N. is not the one we should blame. Those people simply mis-interpreted his prophecy given in Centurie 10:72. Nostradamus did not predict Rapture or end of the world for the year 1999, and in this article we are going to consentrate our research to this fact.
Bible forbids Astrology, there should be no doubt about it. So, N. was not a born-again Christian unless he didn't change the course of his life later (it is possible that he is in Heaven now). But, are his prophecies from Satan? I would say "no". First, if Satan had written those verses, then he would have used these prophecies to discredit Bible. Secondly, only God has as accurate information about the future as Nostradamus had; Satan does not have. Third, N. was not anti-semitic like Luther or cold-blood killer like Calvin; Nostradamus was a doctor who fought against pestillence. Those people who predicted end of the world or Rapture for the year 1999 or 2000 DID discredit Bible, not Michel de Notredame. I think it is highly possible that God Himself chose N. and let him see the future. N. represents common sense among these wild speculations and speculators regarding the end of the world and he is the only one who helps us to preserve our belief in Bible. This is so because some well-known Nostradamus-experts, like Jean Jovaliste and Michael Jordan did not predict the end of the world for the year 1999, and they published this fact before that fateful year -- 1999.
I found Michael Jordan's book, "Nostradamus and the New Millenium" (Finnish edition) from the local library. The author has two remarkable revelations in this book: first, there is no Secret Code; secondly, these verses are in CHRONOGICAL ORDER; verses 1-100 represents years 1556-3797. Below there are a few examples about Nostradamus' accuracy.Earthquake in China, January 24, 1556 -- 83,000 people died -- Centurie 3:3:The Future
Mars and Mercury, and the silver joined together,
Towards the south extreme drought:
In the depths of Asia one will say the earth trembles,
Corinth, Ephesus then in perplexity.
Eclipse in the sun and moon, no rain in the summer, cold winter -- 1556-1557 -- Centurie 3:4 & 3:5:
When they will be close the lunar ones will fail,
From one another not greatly distant,
Cold, dryness, danger towards the frontiers,
Even where the oracle has had its beginning.
Near, far the failure of the two great luminaries
Which will occur between April and March.
Oh, what a loss! but two great good-natured ones
By land and sea will relieve all parts.
Large comet in November 1, 1557; Invasion of Malta -- Centurie 8:6:
Lighting and brightness are seen at Lyons shining,
Malta is taken, suddenly it will be extinguished.
Sardon, Maurice will act deceitfully,
Geneva to London, feigning treason towards the cock.
Siege of Paris, 1590 -- Centurie 3:7:
The fugitives, fire from the sky on the pikes:
Conflict near the ravens frolicking,
From land they cry for aid and heavenly relief,
When the combatants will be near the walls.
First World War; Spanish Flu -- Centurie 9:55:
The horrible war which is being prepared in the West,
The following year will come the pestilence
So very horrible that young, old, nor beast,
Blood, fire Mercury, Mars, Jupiter in France.
Korean War -- Centurie 8:65:
The old man disappointed in his main hope,
will attain to the leadership of his Empire.
Twenty months he will hold rule with great force,
a tyrant, cruel, giving way to one worse.
Talidomidi -- Centurie 1:65:
A child without hands, never so great a thunderbolt seen,
the royal child wounded at a game of tennis.
At the well lightning strikes,
joining together three trussed up in the middle under the oaks.
Assasination of Kennedy -- Centurie 3:66:
The great Bailiff of Orleans put to death
Will be by one of blood revengeful:
Of death deserved he will not die, nor by chance:
He made captive poorly by his feet and hands.
Saddam Hussein; Gulf War I -- Centurie 8:70:
He will enter, wicked, unpleasant,
infamous, tyrannizing over Mesopotamia.
All friends made by the adulterous lady,
the land dreadful and black of aspect.
Nicolae Ceausescu -- Centurie 8:70:
The dart from the sky will make its extension,
Deaths speaking: great execution.
The stone in the tree, the proud nation restored,
Noise, human monster, purge expiation.
Ronald Reagan, 1981-1989, Centurie 6:70:
Chief of the world will the great Chyren be,
Plus Ultra behind, loved, feared, dreaded:
His fame and praise will go beyond the heavens,
And with the sole title of Victor will he be quite satisfied.
Princess Diana, Centurie 5:72 & 6:72:
For the pleasure of the voluptuous edict,
One will mix poison in the faith:
Venus will be in a course so virtuous
As to becloud the whole quality of the Sun.
Through feigned fury of divine emotion
The wife of the great one will be violated:
The judges wishing to condemn such a doctrine,
She is sacrificed a victim to the ignorant people.
Muslim Terror, 1997 -- Centurie 9:72:
Again will the holy temples be polluted,
And plundered by the Senate of Toulouse:
Saturn two three cycles completed,
In April, May, people of new leaven.
Endymion = USA? -- Centurie 2:73:
The shore of Lake Garda to Lake Fucino,
Taken from the Lake of Geneva to the port of L'Orguion:
Born with three arms the predicted warlike image,
Through three crowns to the great Endymion.
Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani? -- Centurie 9:73:
The Blue Turban King entered into Foix,
And he will reign less than an evolution of Saturn:
The White Turban King Byzantium heart banished,
Sun, Mars and Mercury near Aquarius.
The Rapture? -- Centurie 10:74:
The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
It will appear at the time of the games of slaughter:
Not far from the great millennial age,
When the buried will go out from their tombs.
Hillary Clinton? Centurie 6:74:
She chased out will return to the realm,
Her enemies found to be conspirators:
More than ever her time will triumph,
Three and seventy to death very sure.
Back to the Paganism -- Century 9:74:
In the city of Fertsod homicide,
Deed, and deed many oxen plowing no sacrifice:
Return again to the honors of Artemis,
And to Vulcan bodies dead ones to bury.
World's oil reserves run dry? -- Centurie 2:75:
On the pipe of the air-vent floor:
So high will the bushel of wheat rise,
That man will be eating his fellow man.
The Sun darkenes -- Centurie 1:84 & 8:85:
The moon is obscured in deep gloom,
his brother becomes bright red in color.
The great one hidden for a long time in the shadows
will hold the blade in the bloody wound.
Between Bayonne and St. Jean de Luz
will be placed the promontory of Mars.
To the Hanix of the North, Nanar will remove the light,
then suffocate in bed without assistance.
Victory in the Distant Future -- Centurie 9:100:
Naval battle night will be overcome,
Fire in the ships to the West ruin:
New trick, the great ship colored,
Anger to the vanquished, and victory in a drizzle.
Nostradamus predicted that the world will end in the year 3797, and this is most definetely the biggest reason why many Christians do not like him. However, the most important revelation regarding this article is that the Bible does not have contradiction with Nostradamus' timeline. The Book of Daniel, in fact, predicts that the Battle of Armageddon will be wield in the year 2900 A.D. -- Daniel 12:6-7:"And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, 'How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?' Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished."We must remember that when Daniel got the prophecy regarding the end of the world (Daniel, Chapter 11) it was the year 550 B.C. -- Daniel 10:14:"'Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.'"If we add three and half days -- 3,500 Jewish years -- to that year we arrive to the year 2900 A.D. This differs 100 years from Nostradamus' prediction (which is about 2800 A.D.). If we assume that the prophecy given in Daniel 11 ends 100 years after the Millenium has been established, then N. is entirely harmony with the Bible; the end of the world would occur in the year 3797 A.D. and Jesus Christ would establish his Millenian Kingdom in 2800 A.D. Further, the prophecy in Daniel 11 would fulfill 100 years later, in the year 2900 A.D. (three and half days).
However, we must remember that the resurrection of the deaths is mentioned already in verse 74, a long time before the end of the world (verse 100), but clearly after the year 2000; this is the fact that the author Michael Jordan emphasizes. If he is correct, we should expect some kind of culmination of wars and natural disasters plus Rapture pretty soon; please remember thet the events in verse 72 have already occured. But the Tribulation which follows that event does not last seven years but nearly 800 years! This is totally against what most ministers preach, but this explanation might be correct anyway. If it is correct, then I am a wise virgin; if it is not correct, then I am a foolish virgin.
