Sometimes, I learn about controversial people. I first heard about Nostradamus in 1997. His supporters claim that he can predict the future. Films, books, and other devices revolve around him. He was born in St. Remy, France from December 14, 1503 to 1566. He was a doctor of medicine in 1529. Well, what was he and what methods did he used to write his literature? He lived in France, whose grandfather was Jewish. Nostradamus’ family claimed to be from the tribe of Issachar. His own family converted from Judaism to Roman Catholicism when he was 9 years old. He helped people during the plagues in France. He was educated in medicine. He also learned astronomy, astrology, and many other occult
teachings. Additionally, Nostradamus knew Hebrew, Latin, Greece, and other languages, so he was very intelligent. He's the world most famous false prophet in history. Many of his “prophecies” are cryptic. Nostradamus have been exploited by people to reject the Revelation of the end times as found in the New Testament in order to make people to accept the occult. His 2 grandfathers were Jewish people. He burn the Cabbala book from his grandfather and other occult books, because he feared that the Inquisition would kill him if they found what kind of literature he possessed. His paternal grandfather was named Pierre de Nostredame. The Inquistion was a display of immorality by the Roman Catholic Church. The Inquisition was about the Vatican harming people (including torture. Torture was immoral back then and it is still immoral now in 2010) and in some cases murdering people for having a different view than Romanism. Millions were murdered via the Inquisition. Some of his occult texts Nostradamus had dealt with alchemy, hermeticism, and Chaldean plus Assyrian magic. Nostradamus studied Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. In fact, he was apart of the Sicilian Sufi Brotherhood of Islam according to some individuals. He was a Jewish doctor and occultist. Nostradamus was interested into the occult at age 9. During that time, he studied “secret forbidden book” and he mediated. He was a Renaissance man so he believed the link of the 3 major monotheistic religions. Nostradamus told his son not to dabble in occult practices. He burnt down his library.
Nostradamus attended the University of Avignon when he was 15 years old. Nostradamus healed the sick during the plagues in France. In his Traité des fardemens et confitures that he spent the years from 1521 to 1529 wandering the countryside in search of cures and remedies. There are other quotes of Nostradamus praising the Catholic Church. In his Epistle, par. 9, he wrote that:
“…I protest before God and his Saints that I do not propose to insert any writings in this present Epistle that will be contrary to the true Catholic faith….” He also called Jesus Christ the Saviour being born of a virgin, but these
Christian themes are absent from his Centuries (He used this as a means to cover up his occult methods). Also, John Hogue (a Nostradamus scholar) believes that Nostradamus wanted await the New Age spiritual leaders of the East. Hogue‘s interpretation may be wrong, so I wouldn‘t take this at face value at all. Catherine de Medici consulted with Nostradamus according to Freemason David Ovason. Catherine de Médicis, the queen consort of King Henri II of France, was one of Nostradamus's greatest admirers. After reading his almanacs for 1555, which hinted at unnamed threats to the royal family, she summoned him to Paris to explain them and to draw up horoscopes for her children. According to David Ovason, Nostradamus said that Catherine will live longer than her children. Leaders, kings, etc. then and now were intrigued and follow occultism, astrology, etc. In Nostradamus’ book on cosmetics, he says that he spent from 1521 to 1529
working on astrology, in connection with its medical associations in fact to learn about planets to seek “healing principles.“ His friend was Julius-Casear Scaliger. Scaliger was a philosopher among some considered 2nd only to Erasmus all over Europe. There is nothing new under the sun indeed as the Scriptures perfectly describe. At the time, he feared that he would be beheaded, but by the time of his death in 1566, Catherine had made him Counselor and Physician-in-Ordinary to the King. New Age author Dolores Cannon wrote about Nostradamus. There has been at least 30 translations of his works. Nostradamus claims that he has written his work to involved the 1500’s to the year of 3797. He ordered a plague to be dated 1700 in his coffin. July 2, 1566 was when he was found dead. In his latter years, Nostradamus suffered gout and arthritis. Ironically, 134 later after his death in the year 1700, his body was exhumed and placed in a more prominent resting place. Before going forward, his method in his "predictions" must be discovered first. The source of Erika Cheetham's book "The Prophecies of Nostradamus" published by G. P. Putnam’s Sons of New York, New York, copyrighted in 1973 (on pg. 20) accurately showed his method. The book says that Nostradamus would use a wand and put it in a dish to try to "predict" the future. Now, even Nostradamus admitted that when he did this "the god" sits by. Now, Erika Cheetham admitted that this was a form of divination and that Nostradamus used occult books like the De Mysteriis Egyptorum for inspiration. The occult book "De Mysteriius Egyptorum" was created by a fourth-century Neo-Platonist named Tamblichus. In fact, Nostradamus would quote from the book in his quatrains.
"The Nostradamus Encyclopedia" by Peter Lemesurier having even Nostradamus warning his son not to dabble in these methods:
"...he indicates how it is possible for the diviner to open the mind to divine inspiration not merely through the use of judicial astrology, but with the ritual aid of lymbe and exigue flamme ... Almost in the same breath, however, he beseeches his infant son never to dabble in such practices for, he says, they desiccate the body, disturb the mind, and send the soul to perdition. For that reason he has reduced to ashes the ancient books in which he first discovered the techniques involved. They burned, he says, with an unnatural brilliance …” (p. 64).
Ironically, In the last quatrain of his sixth centurie he specifically attacks astrologers in an incantation. I don’t agree with incantations at all. I do agree with biblically criticizing astrologers. Here again, Nostradamus (In Century 1, Quatrain 1-2) directly wrote about his method to predict the future: 1 Sitting alone at night in secret study; it is placed on the brass tripod. A slight flame comes out of the emptiness and makes successful that which should not be believed in vain.
2 The wand in the hand is placed in the middle of the tripod's legs. With water he sprinkles both the hem of his garment and his foot. A voice, fear: he trembles in his robes. Divine splendor; the God sits nearby. In summary, Nostradamus hides in a dark, cold basement and use a dousing stick to stir a bowl filled with water. Then he said that the god (a demon) appears and “splendid glory.” This routine fully represents divination, specifically from ancient Greece. God always reveals His name to His Prophets. Nostradamus deliberately obscures the name of this "deity" because he knows it is Satan or a demon and could prove dangerous if discovered by the witch hunters of his day. In the Preface to his Prophecies, Nostradamus writes to his son in trying to justify his astrology, mixed with his praise of God: “…Perfect knowledge of such things cannot be acquired without divine inspiration, given that all prophetic inspiration derives its initial origin from God Almighty, then from chance and nature. Since all these portents are produced impartially, prophecy comes to pass partly as predicted. For understanding created by the intellect cannot be acquired by means of the occult, only by the aid of the zodiac, bringing forth that small flame by whose light part of the future may be discerned. Also, my son, I beseech you not to exercise your mind upon such reveries and vanities as drain the body and incur the soul's perdition, and which trouble our feeble frames. Above all avoid the vanity of that most execrable magic formerly reproved by the Holy Scriptures - only excepting the use of official astrology…That is why, my son, you can easily, despite your young brain, understand that events can be foretold naturally by the heavenly bodies and by the spirit of prophecy: I do not wish to ascribe to myself the title and role of prophet, but emphasize inspiration revealed to a mortal man whose perception is no further from heaven than the feet are from the earth. I cannot fail, err or be deceived, although I may be as great a sinner as anyone else upon this earth and subject to all human afflictions. But after being surprised sometimes by day while in a trance, and having long fallen into the habit of agreeable nocturnal studies, I have composed books of prophecies, each containing one hundred astronomical quatrains, which I want to condense somewhat obscurely. The work comprises prophecies from today to the year 3797...”
The Old Testament forbids the practice of the occult and divination: "Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.” (Deut. 18:10-12). The Bible says that: “…The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the
words of this law…”- Deut. 29:29. One of the few predictions, that he got right was air travel before wars: Century I, quatrain 63 Les fleurs passees diminue le monde, Long temps la paix inhabitees: Seur marchera par ciel, terre, mer & onde, Pius de nouveau les guerres suscitees. Pestilences extinguished; the world become smaller, For a long time land will be inhabited peacefully. People will travel safely through the sky (over) land and Seas: then wars will start up again.
This outlines that travel and communication worldwide would seem smaller and more efficient via the technology of flying machines, etc. It’s interesting to note that Sir Francis Bacon in his New Atlantis work of the early 1600’s predicted flying machines, underwater vehicles, skyscrapers, advanced scientists, etc. in the future. This describes our time in 2010 to a T. Since Nostradamus acted in these manner, he violated the Holy Scriptures. His main work was his “Prophecies.” Nostradamus’ letter to his son Caesar is actually the Preface to The Prophecies. They were organized into quatrains (a poem having 4 lines that rhyme) that formed 12 Century (a century is one chapter of 100 quatrains). Much of his
quatrains outlined events in an array of astrological conjunctions (that means, he claimed that when planets and stars are in a certain way in the Universe, an event was to occur). The languages he used in his literature were medieval French, Latin, Greek and Hebrew. He had written other literature like his epistle to King Henry, almanacs, and medical pamphlets so he’s very versed in the world and very intelligent. In Century I, quatrain 63, Nostradamus wrote about air and water travel, before wars began. This is confirmed in many peacetime areas in the world. Nostradamus' allies claim that Hitler, Napoleon, and others were predicted by him. Nostradamus believed in 3 major antichrists existing (with the first being Napoleon, the second one is Hitler, and third one is an unknown man named Mabus according to Nostradamus‘ followers). Ironically, Napoleon was married into the Merovingian bloodline (and Nostradamus is rumored to have links to the Merovingian bloodline as well). According to Guardians of the Grail, by J.R. Church, he married into the Merovingian dynasty: “Merovee died in 458 A.D., leaving the throne to his son, Childeric I. Though the grave of Merovee has never been found, the grave of Childeric I was found in 1653. 'The tomb contained...items less characteristic of kingship than of magic, sorcery, and divination—a severed horse's head, a bull's head made of gold and a crystal ball!'... There were other items of interest also found in the tomb of King Childeric I, son of Merovee and father of Clovis—a special set of 300 miniature solid gold bees!... [T]he bees...were given to Leopold Wilhelm von Habsburg, military governor of the Austrian Netherlands, who was considered to be a descendant of the Merovingian dynasty. By 1804, when Napoleon was crowned emperor, those 300 bees had been returned to France. Having special importance to Napoleon, he had them affixed to his coronation robes. Napoleon, of course, had a special interest in the Merovingian dynasty. In 1810, Napoleon married Marie-Louise, the daughter of Francis II, the last Habsburg to sit on the throne of the Holy Roman Empire.” Bees is found in Merovingian imagery. To the Merovingians the bee was a most hallowed creature. A sacred emblem of Egyptian royalty, it became a symbol of Wisdom. Some 300 golden bees were found stitched to the cloak of Childeric I (the son of Meroveus) when his grave was unearthed in 1653. The Third and final one will be annihilated after a 27 year war (along with bodies and human blood covering the Earth). Century VI, quatrain 97 is verse his proponents claim talking about 9/11. It’s incredible to assume that Nostradamus will make this hidden quatrains and predict all of these events. The Bible scholar Chuck Missler was right to warn against those who promote hidden knowledge as the truth. The fact is that truth can be accessible by all human beings (not through a hidden ritual). Notice how supporters of Nostradamus made these claims of his predictions being true after the fact. The History Channel just promoted “The Lost Book of Nostradamus.” It was discovered in 1982 by the Italian journalists Enza Massa and Roberto
Pinottiin the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Roma(Central National Library) in Rome, Italy. Ironically, the book was found in the Vatican library. This book is claimed by New Agers like Hogue of describing future events like the burning Twin Towers are about the 9/11 attack (and the 2012 constellation event. This book has many images). The images of shaved heads exist in the book. There is, however, absolutely no contemporary evidence that Nostradamus himself was either a painter or the author of the work. The experts include that this book just isn’t a work of Nostradamus. It’s purely conjecture to equate the Lost Book of Nostradamus to present (like Saddam Hussein, who died) or future events at all. “Nostradamus: Prophecies for America” is a book created by Freemason David Ovason putting forth the theory that Nostradamus predicted events surrounding America from Jamestown to 9/11. Theophilus Garencieres was the first person to translate all of Nostradamus’ quatrains into English.
THIS IS AN OLD COPY OF THE GENEVA BIBLE. THE GENEVA BIBLE IS A GREAT BIBLE CREATED FROM THE TEXTUS RECEPTUS LINE THAT WAS FORMED IN 1560 IN ITS FULL VERSION. THE 1599 EDITION IS THE FAMOUS EDITION OF THE GENEVA BIBLE.
Most of his prophecies have too much anagrams and cryptic messages. Most of his quatrains also are so ambiguous that they can’t be fully explained unless given a whole wide range of opinions (usually false). The Bible says that God’s word isn’t hidden, but clear and apparent. The test of a true prophet (and this is found in Deuteronomy 18:20-22) is a belief of Jesus Christ as the Messiah and God (Nostradamus isn’t a Christian, but outwardly embraced Roman Catholicism to escape death), accuracy of the prophecies (some of his prophecies are indeed proven false and the rest are either a few true or too hard to tell), and edifying
value of the prophecies (increase of occult usage, astrology, witchcraft in the world, etc. are the negative results of his information). The reason why the History Channel have surprisingly praised Nostradamus is because he is a type of New Age figure that the New Age/establishment crowd wants to promote. This is especially why the History Channel (who is ironically run by the establishment Disney Channel) is having fear mongering about 2012. Some believe that December 21, 2012 will be the end of the world when it won’t be. On that day, the proponents of 2012 hysteria believe that the sun will be aligned with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years. Many Mayan scholars don’t believe that 2012 will cause a doomsday scenario on Earth. Life will exist beyond 2012 indeed. I do believe the History Channel and New Agers are promoting Nostradamus and 2012 fear mongering, because doing this will distract from the real issues going on. The real issues are about the new world order, Jesus Christ’s second coming, 911 Truth, how trillions of taxpayer dollars are missing, and other subject matters. God’s word is clear that we should reject evil completely: "Neither give place to the devil." (Ephesians 4:27, KJV) and "The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light” is a great quote from Romans 13:12, KJV. Clearly, Nostradamus was doing witchcraft and divination when he stared into a bowl of water (where he would place upon a three-legged stool in order to concentrate on his abilities). Let Christians be warned. Jesus said that false prophets would abound in the "last days" (Matt. 24) and would deceive many. Biblical prophecies from the birth of the Messiah, the culture of lawbreakers today, and the approaching global government system have stood the test of time. The best prophetic work is the Bible and it’s easy to understand without the hidden knowledge of Satan (or the occult. The occult means secret). God is never secret. He is ever apparent for us to know. NOSTRADAMUS IS NOT OF GOD. Follow God and His word alone:
“The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit…” -Psalm 34:18
