Nostradamus Effect



Tonight the History Channel began a series titled “The Nostradamus Effect.”

Tonight’s episode essentially focused on the fact that Nostradamus reportedly predicted three “antichrists”.  The predominant view on the program was that Napoleon Bonaparte was the first one, Adolf Hitler was the second one, and the third is yet to arise.

One of the writings that may have predicted Adolf Hitler that was cited was:

Century V Quatrain 29

Liberty will not be recovered,
A proud, villainous, wicked black one will occupy it,
When the matter of the bridge will be opened,
The republic of Venice vexed by the Danube.

Hister is a word that means the Danube river and some translations (like the one on the History Channel use a version of that instead of Danube).  Adolf Hitler was born relatively near the Danube in Austria.

But the emphasis toward the end of the program was on the final one that allegedly Nostradamus termed “third Antichrist”.  Here are a couple of his writings that were cited:

Century X Quatrain 10

Stained with murder and enormous adulteries,

Great enemy of the entire human race:

One who will be worse than his grandfathers, uncles or fathers,

In steel, fire, waters, bloody and inhuman.

Century X Quatrain 77

The antichrist very soon annihilates the three,

twenty-seven years his war will last.

The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;

with blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.
Century X Quatrain 75
Long awaited he will never return

In Europe, he will appear in Asia:

One of the league issued from the great Hermes,

And he will grow over all the Kings of the East.

It is Century X Quatrain 77 that the translation that the History Channel used that they translated as “the third antichrist” as opposed to the antichrist to annihilate three.  But, old French is subject to a variety of translations and what was truly intended in not quite clear.  The program also quoted a Nostradamus Quatrain that is in my articles on 2012 and the one on Prophecies of Barack Obama.

Now, we in the Living Church of God believe that there have been many antichrists (and do not base our position on Nostradamus).  This is what the Apostle John was inspired to write:

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour  (1 John 2:18).

We also believe that there will be a final Antichrist.  And we agree that he will be bad a persecute to death those who will not believe and follow him and his ways.  But we disagree with the followers of Nostradamus who believe that he will not be European (some Nostradamus followers, do suspect he will be European).

(Oh, by the way, RCG’s David Pack is expected to be a guest on “The Nostradamus Effect” program in October, see 09/09/09 a.m  post at GCG News for details.)

Those interested in learning more about the truth about the final Antichrist and even some Nostradamus predictions that may be partially correct in the future may wish to read the following:

Some Doctrines of Antichrist Are there any doctrines taught outside the Churches of God which can be considered as doctrines of antichrist? This article suggests at least three. It also provides information on 666 and the identity of “the false prophet”. Plus it shows that several Catholic writers seem to warn about an ecumenical antipope that will support heresy.
Prophecies of Barack Obama?
Eight reasons why Barack Obama is apocalyptic and eight reasons why Barack Obama is not the Antichrist. Here are there biblical and non-biblical prophecies, from around the world, that seem to discuss Barack Obama. Did Nostradamus predict Barack Obama dealing with the Antichrist? Might Barack Obama set the stage for the kings of the North and South as at least one Shiite prophecy suggests? This is the longest and most complete article on this page on Barack Obama prophecies.
Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States Some claim that Barack Obama is the prophesied “son of Kenya”, based up an early 20th century writing.
Persecutions by Church and State This article documents some that have occurred against those associated with the COGs and some prophesied to occur. Will those with the cross be the persecutors or the persecuted–this article has the shocking answer.
Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel Are the Americans, Canadians, British, Scottish, Welsh, Australians, Anglo-Southern Africans, and New Zealanders descendants of Joseph? Where are the lost ten-tribes of Israel? Who are the lost tribes of Israel? Will God punish the U.S.A., Canada, United Kingdom, and other Anglo nations? Why might God allow them to be punished first?
Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? Are there Mayan calendar predictions for change in 2012? Changes were centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans. Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
