FOUR HORSEMEN, FOUR BEASTS, THREE ANTICHRISTS
July 26, 2010
I will attempt to decipher partly the prophecy of Nostradamus concerning the 3 antichrists. When reading Nostradamus' body of work not in Isolation but in conjunction with biblical prophecy a lot of it makes sense and is surprisingly coherent and in step with other prophets such as Daniel. Biblically there is only one figure in human history that has been and is dreaded throughout and Nostradamus refers to such a figure in his epistle, but he also ascribes the title 'antichrist' to particular evil figures that he particularly highlights as forerunners to the real figure. Nostradamus rarely mentions the word antichrist in his work, to be exact only twice in the centuries and about five times in the epistle. However many specific quatrains seem to talk directly about these horrific figures.
I personally look at the antichrists as 3 with one figure coming before all 3 making up 4 personalities, exactly matching and mirroring the 4 empires out of the river seen by Daniel and 4 horsemen of the apocalypse in Revelation. There are very convincing interpretations as I will point out that make me believe that not only are there sizeable time intervals between the figures but that in any case it is absolutely certain that the third and last antichrist is the one of the book of revelation.
Depending on how one looks at the wording of quatrain 8.77, if one reads Antichrist three very soon annihilated it could be read as antichrist (the) third soon annihilated .because it talks of his war lasting 27 years, meaning a single individual and since the final antichrist is destroyed by God then he must be the last, more importantly however and an interpretation that makes even more biblical sense is that in Daniel 7.8 a horn comes out uprooting 3, in Daniel 8.9 a horn grows in three directions subduing 3 domains and in Zachariah 11:6 God speaks of destroying 3 leaders in one month. So this could in fact be the quatrain summing up the destruction of 3 leaders during the time of the real beast (of the Book of Revelation) sojourn on earth.
Another very important factor is that while there are 4 horsemen of the apocalypse and 4 empires seen by Daniel only the latter three each represent one of the triad of antichrists. Reason is that the final beast of revelation fulfills and completes the prophecy of the second advent. He profanes the temple and attempts to impose himself as god. The first two also have a central role in punctuating important biblical prophecy. In my view the first comes to herald the birth of Israel, the second comes to herald the building of the 3rd temple in Jerusalem and the final one the return of Jesus.
For many historicists who attempt to say that the book of Revelation was symbolically written about the emperor Nero and the book of Daniel was written about Antiochus Epiphanes, it is a complete misreading of both books as Daniel was looking millennia into the future and as I will explain Nostradamus prophecy especially in his epistle begins many centuries after his death, for the most part in the 20th century so there is much prophecy to be fulfilled yet.
Now I take the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse to mirror the 4 empires of Daniel with each horse and empire standing for one time period also being supported by a prominent figure from Nostradamus visions. Many people say where do we begin from? Well as I said most of the prophecy of Daniel has nothing to do with Babylon,Medo-Perisan,Alexanders or even Roman empires, he saw far far ahead into the future.Most of the prophecy of Daniel and that of Revelation fit like hand in glove and begin after Nostradamus own century.
Nostradamus epistle for the most part is narrated chronologically except for a few jumps in a timeline that may precede an aforementioned event.What is important is to identify an event that mirrors a particular horseman, and a particular empire in Daniel.
Basically Nostradamus mentions such an event in his epistle when he says:
But not everywhere. It will mark the commencement of what will long endure. For beginning with this year the Christian Church will be persecuted more fiercely than it ever was in Africa, and this will last up to the year 1792, which they will believe to mark a renewal of time.
Indeed this was one of the most important periods in human history. It began the renewal of the political outlook of the world because it followed the French and American revolutions. Here monarchy was replaced by democratic and republican government something that is exactly mentioned by Daniels first empire the Lion with wings who loses the wings and turns into a man. This is a spot on prophecy depicting the loss of popularity of monarchism (lion usually a symbol of royalty) through a political revolution that would change the world forever. Since then many governments have fallen to this white rider with subsequent revolutions in the 19th century. However the most powerful beneficiary of this convulsive environment was one leader and this was Napoleon.
one could say the revolution white in colour was the horse and he
was the rider, but not an antichrist because his era had nothing
significant to do with Israel as a lynchpin of bible prophecy.
c 1.60 specifically mentions Napoleon but not as an Antichrist merely a brutal conqueror.
Thereafter Nostradamus for the first time in his epistle mentions the word Antichrist in a very very in fact frighteningly accurate prophecy that mirrors the 2nd horseman and the 2nd empire of Daniel. Nostradamus says:
'Then the great Empire of the Antichrist will begin where once was Attila's empire and the new Xerxes will descend with great and countless numbers, so that the coming of the Holy Ghost, proceeding from the 48th degree, will make a transmigration, chasing out the abomination of the Christian Church, and whose reign will be for a time and to the end of time. This will be preceded by a solar eclipse more dark and gloomy than any since the creation of the world, except that after the death and passion of Jesus Christ. And it will be in the month of October than the great translation will be made and it will be such that one will think the gravity of the earth has lost its natural movement and that it is to be plunged into the abyss of perpetual darkness. In the spring there will be omens, and thereafter extreme changes, reversals of realms and mighty earthquakes. These will be accompanied by the procreation of the new Babylon, miserable daughter enlarged by the abomination of the first holocaust. It will last for only seventy-three years and seven months.'
This is a very accurate prophecy of another new and convulsive period and all fingers point at the Russian revolution.
In fact this particular prophecy talks of an empire coming into being in the month of October a birth of a New Babylon enlarged by the First holocaust (world war one) which would last 73 years and 7 months. Now the coincidences are not only astounding but the fact that Attila was a Hun an ancient people from Central Asia where again coincidentally Lenins Tatar ancestry has its roots. The USSR was born during WW1 in October And lasted to within a month of the 73 and a half years!! What is more even if we are to assume this prophecy is not speaking of the USSR it still applies to China because it too is communist..the colour of the 2nd Red horse, it too was born on October 1st 1949 again after the 2nd world war (witness to a true Holocaust) and in fact the 2nd world war is better represented by the world holocaust because it is a war of great civilian death, material destruction and use of atomic weapons for the first time. If as Jesus and Nostradamus warned a war of this magnitude was only the first of many then it definitely could be the 1st holocaust. This does not mean Lenin or Mao Tse Tung were the antichrist but it does say the empire took shape and would be punctuated by a figure who would be the first antichrist.
What is more this very same period does not specifically speak of Communist leaders but it does cover several tyrants over the 73 years many of whom were Totalitarian. Daniel is also reflective of this period, in harmony with the horsemen of Revelation and Nostradamus, he called the 2nd empire a bear (a symbol of totalitarian rule) with three ribs between its teeth. Many may wonder what these 3 ribs mean and I realized they mean the 3 world wars, the 1st saw the birth of USSR, the 2nd saw the birth of Communist china and the 3rd will lead to the replacement of this empire with the 3rd empire of the four headed leopard.
It is also no doubt that the second horseman is red and is told to take peace from the earth, ever since the 1st world war there has been an increase in number of wars on earth and not the decrease. All that said who best epitomizes the figure of the Antichrist in the 20th century as the rider of this red horse? In one word Hitler. This man best mirrors a figure who had a pivotal role in the establishment of the state of Israel and that is why he is the first.
Because of the final solution there was a lot of guilt on the part of the gentile world and in an effort to absolve itself and prevent future tragedies the world accepted the formation of a Jewish state (something that was began by the Balfour declaration in 1917 coincidentally the same year of the Russian revolution)
While Hitler is mentioned in some particular quatrains like 2. 24, 3. 35 and 5.29 the most important mention of him in the context of him being the first antichrist is in the epistle where Nostradamus says:
'During this astrological supputation, harmonized with the Holy Scriptures, the persecution of the Ecclesiastical folk will have its origin in the power of the Kings of "Aquilon" [the North], united with the Easterners. This persecution will last for eleven years, or somewhat less, for then the chief King of "Aquilon" will fall.'
This paragraph seems to be an interjection after Nostradamus has already talked about the 2nd antichrist but as one reads this paragraph it talks of the persecution of the Ecclesiastical folk which could be taken to mean the church or the Jewish people (who are taken to be the holy people). No leader before Hitler so vehemently desired the annihilation of the Jews. Aquilon in Nostradamus writings means the north and particularly Northern Europe. It is undoubtedly true that Hitler was the lord of Europe for about 2/3 years of WW2 and he was united with the Easterners ... this is speaking of imperial Japan who joined the Axis powers through the tripartite agreement. The persecution did last for a little over 11 years if one counts from 1933-1944 after which Hitler fell. So this is the prophecy that talks of Hitler directly.
The last clue is in c 10.75
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.
This is a very interesting quatrain it first of all mentions someone long awaited who is this long awaited?? It is definitely no ordinary king or leader. Only 3 figures in the history of mankind are long awaited two of them are the messianic figures Jesus (for Christians) and Mahdi (for Muslims) and the third is the evil figure the Antcihrist. Now Nostradamus seems to be talking of a figure already received once in Europe but now not from Europe this logically means he is speaking of an antichrist figure. The first being from Europe (Hitler) and the second from Asia or the kings of the East.
I believe this rider will rise during WW3 the last bone of the 3 bones in the bear empires mouth that is told to go and eat flesh. This war and leader in the book of revelation is symbolized by the black horseman the 3rd in a series of horsemen. The significance of the color is important because I believe the world upheaval that has a correlation with this rider is one we may be on the verge of which is Islamic jihad. In Islam the colour associated with war is black before the rise of the Mahdi in Islamic eschatology a huge army with black flags arises from the area of Khorasan (modern day Iran) to conquer most of the world. This is corroborated by the Bible which says in the book of Daniel on two separate occasions about a menace coming from Persia or the East.
Now then I tell you the truth: Three more kings will appear in Persia, and then a fourth, who will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece."
.. Daniel speaks of a
vision he had while in Babylon
In my vision I saw myself in the citadel of Susa in the province of Elam; in the vision I was beside the Ulai canal. I looked up and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later .I watched the ram as he charged towards the west, the north and the south. No animal could stand against him, and none could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.
is not only interesting to note that the Ram is a symbol of a
dual alliance but also his path of attack, it directs north
(which is probably Central Asia), west (towards Europe) and South
(most likely Middle East or North Africa). Another peculiar but
very close fitting prophecy is of an invasion of Europe
from the east by many European prophets (including Nostradamus)
some of their prophecies are very detailed they include
prophecies by Alois Irlmaier, Adam Wuerzburg, Joseph Stockert,
Eilert Jasper, Johan von Erenberg, monk of Werl, Erna Stieglitz
... In particular Alois Irlmaier mentions a black army (possibly
uniformed that way) invading from the east. Nostradamus in a few
quatrains mentions a conflict in Europe against a black army or
an army from a dark nation for example centuries 2.93,4.3 and 4.4
(this one actually says rape and pillage on the sides of the
combatants being the French and the Africans) and 8.34. Again in
c.4.68 there is mention of an alliance of two kings specifically
two great ones one of Africa and one of Asia who attack Europe. A
common thread in all these prophecies is that an eastern kingdom
is an aggressor for example the following prophecy
"Where the rivers Rhine and Mosela meet, a very bloody battle will be joined against the Turks (Muslims) and Russians, so that the Rhine will blush for 25 leagues".
have pointed out I believe Russia will somehow be stirred against
the west by this Persian leader, this could be an economic
alliance. However it is an uneasy alliance as they are not of
equal length probably saying that is a marriage of
convenience. In fact Nostrdamus when he talks of the 2nd
antichrist instead mentions 3 leaders forming one common enemy.
In other words the 2nd antichrist will have 2 sidekicks.
'It will be at this time and in these countries that the infernal power will set the power of its adversaries against the Church of Jesus Christ. This will constitute of the second Antichrist, who will persecute that Church and its true Vicar, by means of the power of three temporal kings who in their ignorance will be seduced by tongues which, in the hands of the madmen, will cut more than any sword.'
Many people think that this excerpt from the epistle is speaking of Adolf Hitler (Germany), Benito Mussolini (Italy) and Hideki Tojo (Japan) but as we have already seen Hitler was the 1st antichrist. The second is from Asia and he will have two cohorts. The common viewpoint by many prophets is that some communist element of the alliance still exists at this time because in many prophecies especially by Sister Elena Aiello, Josef Kugelbeer and Anton Johansson the common denominator is Russias wrath against the church and the west. Nostradamus himself in c. 5.73 says the same only that instead of Russians he mentions Poles as Arab allies. Also we must bear in mind that the 2nd antichrist while probably a Muslim is not a theocrat unlike the Mahdi who follows him. He could in fact be a closet atheist enabling him to join the 2 leaders with a communist past (probably Russia and China). c.1.99 talks of a king joining two other kings at which time there will be great pity for the children of Narbonne, in other words the alliance of these 3 spells trouble for western Europe. The clue of this is also in Nostradamus quatrains where he mentions reds (Communist) first united then falling apart from the 2nd antichrist. They are united in c. 5.22 and this quatrain seems to speak of their rejoicing at the death of a common enemy from the west. Alternatively this could be the quatrain that mentions the death of an enigmatic figure whose assassination (maybe Mabus) leads to the outbreak of war. Again in c 8.19 there is mention of the red ones march in order to clarify a great trouble.
According to Alois Irlamaier the 3rd world war starts when an assassination of a figure occurs in the Balkans. Century 8.19 suggests in the last line that the red, red ones will knock down the red one I think this speaks of some red skinned /ruddy (Arab/Indian looking communists) instigating an assassination of a communist. Undiscovered they provoke a war with the west while allying themselves with a communist east. However this alliance does not last the entirety of the conflict as c. 5.23 says two contented ones probably allies of the 2nd antichrist will be united in war but the great one of Africa (probably the Arab 2nd antichrist whose sphere extends that far) will be troubled when the two will be defeated by a western sea fleet or invasion. What is more c. 5.78 says two individuals united to the Persian will not be united to him very long, but will instead cause his ruin. This enmity is also mentioned in c.6. 58 which says that between two distant kings great enmity will arise leading to the liberation of the Isles and Sienna. In other words the fallout will enhance the defeat of the 2nd antichrist. The actual quatrain that speaks of the second antichrists mobilization of his armies is 3.60 and this 2nd antichrist figure is specifically mentioned as being an invader of western Europe from an area around central Asia or Iran in c.2.29, 5.54, (towards France) 5.55 (towards Spain), 5.68 (towards Germany and central Europe) and 7.6 (towards Italy). It is quite possible that he is the same figure being called the duke of Armenia in c. 5.94. What is more it appears that his invasion is not only land based but even by sea as an interpreted in c.5.27 where the Adriatic sea is covered by Arab blood (people) or in c.6.55 where Arab sails (ships) are seen suddenly.
Now going back to Daniel 8 to continue with the prophecy of that 2nd Antichrists defeat Daniel 8:5-8 says:
As I was thinking about this suddenly a goat with a prominent horn between his eyes came from the west crossing the whole earth without touching the ground. He came towards the two horned ram I had seen standing behind the canal and charged at him in great rage. I saw him attack the ram furiously, striking the ram and shattering his two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against him; the goat knocked him to the ground and trampled on him and none could rescue the ram from his power, he did as he pleased and became great, but at the height of his power his large horn was broken off and in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the 4 winds of heaven
So Daniel says that the 2 horned Ram was defeated by a Goat from the west. This is corroborated by Nostradamus in his epistle where he says:
The supporting common people will rise up and chase out the adherents of the legislators. From the way realms will have been weakened by the Easterners, it will seem that God the Creator has loosed Satan from the prisons of hell to give birth to the great Dog and Dogam, who will make such an abominable breach in the Churches that neither the reds nor the whites without eyes or hands will know what to make of it, and their power will be taken from them.
Then will commence a persecution of the Churches the like of which was never seen. Meanwhile, such a plague will arise that more than two thirds of the world will be removed. One will be unable to ascertain the true owners of fields and houses, and weeds growing in the streets of cities will rise higher than the knees. For the clergy there will be but utter desolation. The warlords will usurp what is returned from the City of the Sun, from Malta and the Isles of Hyères. The great chain of the port which wakes its name from the marine ox will be opened.
And a new incursion will be made by the maritime shores, wishing to deliver the Sierra Morea from the first Mahometan recapture. Their assaults will not all be in vain, and the place which was once the abode of Abraham will be assaulted by persons who hold the Jovialists in veneration. And this city of "Achem" will be surrounded and assailed on all sides by a most powerful forceof warriors. Their maritime forces will be weakened by the Westerners, and great desolation will fall upon this realm. Its greatest cities will be depopulated and those who enter will fall under the vengeance of the wrath of God.
The sepulcher, for long an object of such great veneration, will remain in the open, exposed to the sight of the heavens, the Sun and the Moon. The holy place will be converted into a stable for a herd large and small, and used for profane purposes. Oh, what a calamitous affliction will pregnant women bear at this time.
For hereupon the principal Eastern chief will be vanquished by the Northerners and Westerners, and most of his people, stirred up, will be put to death, overwhelmed or scattered. His children, offspring of many women, will be imprisoned."
This very detailed excerpt of the epistle mirrors what Daniel said that at first the Ram will be victorious bringing a plague that removes two thirds of the earth. That is the reason why the third horse represents famine. War is always a cause of famine but with the development of nuclear, chemical and biological weaponry now, the war with the 2nd antichrist will lead to a famine so severe to be incomparable to anything before. However Nostradamus goes on to say just like Daniel that the 2nd antichrist will face an invasion from the west by sea .because Daniel says the Goat will come from the west without touching the ground (definitely an aerial and amphibious invasion). In the epistle of Nostradamus the focus and detail is in the fact that an incursion will be made by sea to free Sierra Morrea from Arab capture and the place which was Abrahams abode (Israel) will be assaulted by people who hold the Jovialists (Jews) in veneration .Now only Christians hold Jews as holy people..Muslims hold them in contempt and specific verses in the Koran call for their destruction. Jovialists is a word used to describe Jews because Nostradamus in his writings sometimes refers to God as Jove, so this invasion is a description of a counter attack by the west.
Not only will the Arab navy be annihilated as an alternative interpretation to c.5.27 but also mentioned is a trireme fleet against the Arabs in c.3.64, an English fleet against the crescent sea city (maybe Achem/Acre??) in c.5.35 and a line in c. 5.25 where an Arab prince the (more likely to) rule of the Church will succumb by sea' it also says toward Persia nearly a million men a clear prophecy of a counter attack on the 2nd antichrist's homeland. c.2.86 talks of a fleet destroyed in the Adriatic that makes Egypt tremble the Islamic increase..in other words people become disillusioned with the destruction triggered by the 2nd antichrist (just as Germany became disillusioned with Hitler in ww2) and it says the herald surrendering himself (the 2nd antichrist is defeated.)
Meanwhile c.5.62 talks of war at Rome and ships sunk to the bottom by Trident (a scepter of the god of the sea 'Neptune' or in the current interpretation maybe a nuclear sub) and in c.6.44 a great fleet is sunk in the Gulf of Arabia. Other quatrains that talk of great devastation by sea or from the sea are c.10.87 and c.10.88 which mentions foot and horse (infantry and cavalry) devastating all by way of the sea.
Italy figures a lot as a great battlefield on land probably where resistance to the goat is the greatest. The fact that there is a battle in Italy is corroborated by other Nostradamus quatrains like c.5.68 which claims the war of the second antichrist will be checked or turned in the Alps near Italy. Italy in other quatrains seems to bear the brunt of the western counter offensive, here the westerners are called the Celts in c.2.72 and 4.4 as well as the forces of the Eagle (America) in c.2.37. In quatrains c.2.64,c.2.94 and 2.99 instead of 'Celts the conquerors are the Gauls (French) but c.2.99 also diffuses the confusion by calling either Italy or France a Celtic nation which probably means they are united under one leader and are all on the same side. While c.2.94 adds the seaborne invasion of Italy by infinite numbers a sure link with the Daniel prophecy of the 'Goat. Century 2.39 speaks of an invasion of Italy by Germans, Gauls and Spaniards which is a further clue that this not a WW2 against the 1st antichrist, but a WW3 campaign against the 2nd antichrist being talked about.
Back in the epistle excerpt Nostradamus says that the holy place will be converted into a stable for large herd and small and used for profane purposes this is the central lynchpin of the 2nd antichrist in our scenario. He is again linked to an invasion of Abrahams land and profaning of a holy place, the 3rd temple which I believe will be built shortly before the 2nd antichrist arrives on the scene. In the final conclusion the Eastern chief is vanquished by the westerners and northerners.
The fact that this western coalition is simplified by Daniel as one horn is not a problem as Nostradamus too mentions one or two powerful figures from the west. Usually Gaul (France) c.4.37, c7.10, c.5.13, c.5.80 (a figure called Ogmios) and England and America in c.10.66 (specifically mentioning them facing a false antichrist), England (called a lion) and America (called an eagle) again in c.5.99, or an Anglo-Franco alliance like in c.2.69 with a 'Gallic king though his Celtic right arm' (his Celtic ally) who interestingly makes his scepter flourish over the 3 parts .. maybe the three domains of the 3 defeated kings of WW3 or the 3 united in victory as the triumvirate. Some quatrains seem to suggest this king will be a German in c.5.74 or simply a north European leader in c.10.86 and c.10.95. One King in particular is shown to be victorious and he is probably the leader of the coalition. Nostradamus calls him Chiren or Chyren in 2.79 he is said to take back all land captured by the Selin(a reference to the 2nd antichrist) and subjugate his cruel and proud people, in c.4.34 he is shown to capture the 2nd antichrist which gives the inkling that unlike Hitler the 2nd antichrist will be captured alive. The clue that this is after the bitter campaign in Italy is that it says the antichrist loses his war in Milan, probably the very same campaign of c.2.37. Also a probability is that the other two cohorts of the antichrist are executed by this victorious king in c. 5.45.
Another interesting clue is that the 2nd antichrist will be betrayed by the Byzantians, I think here this stands for Orthodox eastern Europe particularly Russia. The clues are in c. 5.47 and maybe in c. 5.4. Here it talks of a mastiff (a big dog also mentioned as the 2nd antichrist by Nostradamus in his epistle) being vexed (or troubled by his ally) then in the last line says the wolf (a ferocious wild depiction of a canine) and the bear (Russia/Byzantium) will defy each other. Interestingly c.4.38 also suggests that the Byzantine or Russian leader is also captured.
Now all these prophecies speak of the victory by the western goat, but how does this tie in with the prophecy of Daniels 3rd beast? As I was stressing the 3rd beast has nothing to do with the broken up empire of Alexander the great but much more to do with the 4 big powers who inherit the kingdom or empire of the great horn. Daniel 8:8 says "the goat became very great but at the height of his power his large horn was broken off and in its place four prominent horns grew up towards the four winds of heaven" while Daniel 11:3-4 says Then a mighty king will appear who will rule with great power and do as he pleases. After he has appeared, his empire will be broken up and parceled out towards the four winds of heaven.
Both these prophecies echo the 4 heads of the leopard with 4 wings that arrive before the empire of the real antichrist. Moreover Daniel 8:9-12 says out of one of these 4 horns (empires) will come the true antichrist. In the epistle Nostradamus says:
What great oppression will then fall upon the Princes and Governors of Kingdoms, especially those which will be maritime and Eastern, whose tongues will be intermingled with all others: the tongue of the Latins, and of the Arabs, via the Phoenicians. And all these Eastern Kings will be chased, overthrown and exterminated, but not altogether, by means of the forces of the Kings of the North, and because of the drawing near of our age through the three secretly united in the search for death, treacherously laying traps for one another. This renewed Triumvirate will last for seven years, and the renown of this sect will extend around the world. . Then the Lords of "Aquilon" [the North], two in number, will be victorious over the Easterners, and so great a noise and bellicose tumult will they make amongst them that all the East will tremble in terror of these brothers, yet not brothers, of "Aquilon" [the North]."
Nostradamus says a triumvirate will rise up after the defeat of the 2nd antichrist, but it will be united for only 7 years as it will be plagued by mistrust. It is also probable that there are 3 dominant powers who comprise the nations that defeated the 2nd antichrist but of these 2 are pre-eminent my guess from the quatrain is that these two are France and America as mentioned in c.8.46. However America is mentioned as an outsider, that quatrain says France and 3 brothers the total of 4 heads of the leopard the identity of the other nations is given by Nostradamus in a round and about way when he says...
The said reign of the Antichrist will last only to the death of him who was born at the beginning of the age and of the other one of Lyon, associated with the elected one of the House of Modena and of Ferrara, maintained by the Adriatic Ligurians and the proximity of great Sicily. Then the Great St. Bernard will be passed.
Again many people mistake this part of the epistle as referring to Hitler, Pierre Laval and Mussolini but most likely they refer to personalities after the defeat of the 2nd antichrist a French king (descendant of Chyren probably Ogmios of c.6.42), an Italian king who is associated with the French king (perhaps the Belgian Roman of c. 5.13) and a Ligurian this could be the German of Trojan/Turkish blood c. 5.74 or the Macedonian of c.10.7. It is worth noticing that even though the 4 heads are individual and separate they are on one body much like many European Union countries are part of the EU. An example is in c.4. 5 which speaks of Spain and Gaul united as one. Also c.1.93 seems to suggest that England (Lion) and France (cock) are united in a pact of war against an enemy. A similar prophecy by Mother Shipton says England and France shall be one before the coming of the final antichrist she says:
Three times shall lovely sunny France
Be led to play a bloody dance
Before the people shall be free
Three tyrant rulers shall she see.
Three rulers in succession be
Each springs from different dynasty.
Then when the fiercest strife is done
England and France shall be as one.
only after the four headed empire of the 3rd beast of Daniel does
the antichrist empire of the 4th horseman of death and hell come.
The 4th horseman depicts death and hell in its totality also
immediately after him the fifth seal speaks of the great
persecution of Christians and the celestial signs the precede the
coming of Jesus.
Daniel says exactly the same in Daniel 8:9-12
Out of one of them came another horn, which started small but grew in power to the south, and to the east and to the Beautiful land (Israel).It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them.It set itself up to be as great as the prince of the host;it took away the daily sacrifice from him and the place of the sanctuary was brought low. Because of rebellion, the host of the saints and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did and truth was thrown to the ground
However before proceeding further one has to admit that though so far the deciphering of the 1st three horsemen has been relatively simple the third and final antichrist is anything but simple. It is not enough to link him simply to the 4th horseman of Revelation or the 4th empire of Daniel. The character of the antichrist is quite complex for any bible scholar but there are some common threads in revelation and in Daniel that seems to make sense of this mystery with Nostradamus quatrains that seem to agree The definite description of the antichrist is Revelation 13:1-4
And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads with 10 crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion.The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed .The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast and they also worshiped the beast and asked who is like the beast ,who can make war against him?
Shortly before this dragon is also described in Rev 12:3
Then another sign appeared in heaven an enormous red dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns and seven crowns on his heads
Again further detail in Rev 17:9-14 says:
This calls for wisdom. The seven heads are 7 hills on which the woman sits. They are also 7 kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, but when he does come, he must remain a little while. The beast who once was and now is not is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction. The ten horns you saw are 10 kings who have not yet received a kingdom but who for one hour will receive authority as kings with the beast. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast
The first problem is whether the 7 kings of the antichrist are his contemporaries or come before him. I think a dual interpretation is the best of all .First of all the dragon has 7 crowns on his 7 heads and 10 horns. The clue in Rev 17 is that the 7 heads are kings of which five have fallen and one is with one more yet to come.Since the dragon comes before the beast and seems to give his power to the beast it is more logical to assume that the dragon is a summation of empires that come before the antichrist(thus the 10 horns are uncrowned and no one knows which heads they are on) while the beast is the final figure or the 3rd antichrist with his 10 horns crowned for they willingly give their service to him.
us deal with the Dragon first
many assume that it speaks for
Ancient Egypt, Assyrian empire, Babylonian empire, Medo-persian
empire, Hellenic(Alex the greats) empire, the five that
fell..the Roman empire which was existing at the time of the
writing of Revelation and one last future empire to come
empire of the Antichrist. I disagree with this very retrospective
look at the prophecy as we have already proved with Daniels
prophecy of the 4 empires.
This prophecy is very accurate but start much later as I will try to explain in a diagram below
.... 1st crowned head
2nd Horseman Bear empire.. ... 2nd crowned head .1st ANTICHRIST ..Hitler
3rd crowned head .2nd ANTICHRIST ..The black one from Tartary
.... 4th crowned head
victorious Goat horn and replacing horn (horn 1/4)
5th crowned head .the second new horn (2/4)
6th crowned head .the third new horn (3/4)
4th Horseman .The terrible empire . 7th crowned head the fourth new horn (4/4)
NB: It is IMPORTANT to put the remaining 4 horns ..Horn 7, horn 8, horn 9 and horn 10 on the last and 7th head! So that when the focus shifts on the last head it stays in sync with what happens in Daniel 7:8 where we see that three of the crowned horns are broken and give way to the little boastful horn. This is also the same small fifth horn growing out of one of the four in Daniel 8:9-12. Alternatively using c.2.18 we can deduce that 10 horns are on the 7th head but 3 remain functioning threats for the antichrist as I will attempt to explain later.
This attempt to decipher the horns and heads is very crucial in the fact that it is substantiated by Rev 17 which says the antichrist is the 7th head that once was, became not and again came to be.Offcourse at an individual level we see a description of some fatal injury that the antichrist survives. However if we are looking at the dragon heads as kings or kingdoms then what could possibly cause the wounding of a kingdom bringing it close to death?? I realized that this is where Daniel 7:7-8 prophecy makes sense because it says:
After that in my vision at night I looked and there before me was a fourth beast, terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the other former beasts and it had 10 horns. While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn a little one which came up among them and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that spoke boastfully
So the little horn that breaks the 3 horns grows in place could be the wound on the 7th head that is spoken of in Rev 13 that almost destroys it, but soon makes it the most powerful of all. We must not forget that out of the 4 crowns on head number 7 one remains intact and so that head remains alive but now it has two crowns instead of one the second crown to the 7th is the 8th!! In a way the blip for the antichrist could be interpreted as he was fatally wounded and for a while was incapacitated but came back to life and power .So he was and was not and came to be again...OR we could interpret this as the antichrist and his autonomous image (perhaps clone) ruling as one with the 7 but also an eighth ....while as an empire we could simply read as an empire led by one and ravaged by 3 enemies during his rule that almost destroyed his empire and he somehow had 3 enemies annihilated and their domains brought under himself with the help of another...the false prophet such that the two crowns ruling empire 7 on the beast are the antichrist and his false prophet.
This is what Rev 17:9-14 because 'the beast that once was and now is not is an eight king and he belongs to the 7.'
Definitely this line speaks of all this occurring after the three horns are broken not before, otherwise it would be the 11th. This seems the only logical way of counting the horns otherwise the horns would not be talked of as 10, unless all 10 horns are on the 7th wounded head of the beast (in the c.2.18 scenario of the 10, seven are destroyed leaving 3 which are in turn subdued by the antichrist). Besides this is exactly the scenario depicted on the 4th empire of Daniel in Daniel 7:8 and the beast of Revelation 13.
Supposing we take the Ram with its two horns as being Horn 1 and Horn 2, then the Goat from the west with one horn that destroys the Ram means this becomes horn 3, then the goats horn breaks and in its place 4 horns grow becoming horn 4, horn 5, horn 6 and horn 7 again we see 7 horns!!
Not only that but the little horn in Daniel 8:9-12 growing out of one of the four becomes horn number 8. The fact that it grows in 3 directions means it subdues its own base (7) and then grows out to subdue horn 6 and 5, again mirroring the prophecy of Daniel 7:8 and Nostradamus c.8.77 and c.2.88 which seems to be a quatrain marrying all what I have said into one it says:
The circuit of the great ruinous deed,
The seventh name of the fifth will be:
Of a third greater the stranger warlike:
Sheep, Paris, Aix will not guarantee.
The interpretation is that the circuit of the great ruinous one is that the 7th crown is the same name of the fifth horn of Daniel 8:9-12.In other words the horn of Daniel 8:9 is the same horn of Daniel 7:8 on the head that was wounded and whose wound was healed. Also it mentions ' of a third greater the stranger warlike' which seems to speak of this individual being a third in a series of warlike strangers or 3 antichrists.
We are also clued in on about the final and third antichrist is in Daniel 8:20-25
The two horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia. The shaggy goat is the King of Greece, and the large horn between his eyes is the first king. The four horns that replaced the one that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will emerge from his nation but will not have the same power. In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern faced king a master of intrigue will arise. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed but not by human power
This is a description of the 3rd antichrist who is said to come from one of the 4 kingdoms of the 3rd empire of the Leopard it could take a while for this to happen as Nostradamus epistle suggests to show that wars between the Aquiloners and the king of the South keep going on, he says:
Thereupon the same thing will occur in the South, where for the space of three years the Church people will be persecuted even more fiercely through the Apostatic seduction of one who will hold all the absolute power in the Church militant. The holy people of God, the observer of his law, will be persecuted fiercely and such will be their affliction that the blood of thetrue Ecclesiastics will flow everywhere.
One of the horrible temporal Kings will be told by his adherents, as the ultimate in praise, that he has shed more of human blood of Innocent Ecclesiastics than anyone else could have spilled of wine. This King will commit incredible crimes against the Church. Human blood will flow in the public streets and temples, like water after an impetuous rain, coloring the nearby rivers red with blood. The ocean itself will be reddened by another naval battle, such that one king will say to another, Naval battles have caused the sea to blush.
Then, in this same year, and in those following, there will ensue the most horrible pestilence, made more stupendous by the famine which will have preceded it. Such great tribulations will never have occurred since the first foundation of the Christian Church. It will cover all Latin regions, and will leave traces in some countries of the Spanish.
Thereupon the third King of "Aquilon" [the North], hearing the lament of the people of his principal title, will raise a very mighty army and, defying the tradition of his predecessors, will put almost everything back in its proper place, and the great Vicar of the hood will be put back in his former state. But desolated, and then abandoned by all, he will turn to find the Holy of Holies destroyed by paganism, and the old and new Testaments thrown out and burned.
After that Antichrist will be the infernal prince again, for the last time. All the Kingdoms of Christianity will tremble, even those of the infidels, for the space of twenty-five years. Wars and battles will be more grievous and towns, cities, castles and all other edifices will be burned, desolated and destroyed, with great effusion of vestal blood, violations of married woman and widows, and sucking children dashed and broken against the walls of towns. By means of Satan, Prince Infernal, so may evils will be committed that nearly all the world will find itself undone and desolated. Before these events, some rare birds will cry in the air: Hui, Hui [Today, today] and some time later will vanish.
This part of the epistle says that there will be wars between the north and the south kings just as the bible mentions in the wars of Daniel 11. Now it is very difficult to know whether the king will be a Muslim or Christian. Certainly the antichrist will be Jewish because In Zachariah 8:23 it says In those days ten men (kings) will take firm hold of one Jew by the edge of the robe (a symbol of authority) and say Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you
This brings us back to the Rev 13 enigma though even if we accept the 10 horns are the antichrist contemporaries as, I will explain all will fall to his rule but not by true free will, but duress of extraordinary circumstances ... Nostradamus in c.2.18
New, impetuous and sudden rain
Will suddenly halt two armies.
Celestial stone, fires make the sea stony,
The death of seven by land and sea sudden.
Here he says a celestial rain of stone, fire makes the sea stony and stops two armies (probably the ones left of the 3 kings before they are destroyed by the antichrist..it says the death of 7 on sea and land is sudden. The only interpretation is that 7 leaders could be destroyed by God suddenly while he lets 3 get destroyed by the antichrist in one month in Zachariah 11:6. The math of Daniel 7:8 is that 7 out of 10 coming against Israel to destroy it, are annihilated by fire and brimstone sent by God...which in turn seems very similar to when the false prophet calls fire from the sky in Rev 13:13 and as already said in Zachariah 11:6 God annihilates 3 kings in one month, the antichrist probably takes the credit for that.
A very convincing verse is in the bible in Zacheriah 13:8-9 which says
'Declares the Lord, two thirds will be struck down and perish, yet one third will be left in it. This third I will bring into the fire. I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them. I will say they are my people and they will say 'the lord is our God'
Now this if taken as a fraction of ten would make two thirds about 7 instantly destroyed and the third left (3) to be tested severely by the antichrist with all in the end calling for God to come and help them against this nefarious figure. So c.2.18 could be one of the most vivid quatrains to help in deciphering what really happens in Revelation. Besides it is very easy to explain with this kind of analysis why out of 10 horns in Daniel 7 only 3 are mentioned as falling to the antichrist. The simple fact is the rest are destroyed by god with only 3 left standing at the time the clue is in c.2.92 which says the proud one (the antichrist) will escape the fiery judgment, as also says c.5.100 ... meaning he will be free to attack the other 3 domains that probably survive the celestial judgement. The fact that he can handpick his 10 viceroys later to fill any domain he controls is a simple eventuality.
The clue is that all this happens during the war of Gog-Magog and is a stepping stone for the 3rd and final antichrist. The war of Gog mentions Gog the prince of Meshech and Tubal (present day Dagestan), Prince of Persia, Prince of Gomer, Prince of Cush (Sudan) and Put (Libya) and the prince of Beth Tugarmah (central Asia). A careful counting reveals that these are heads of 7 domains if these 7 are destroyed by God and 3 out of 10 are destroyed by the antichrist. The coalition of Gog in any case is defeated supernaturally by fire from the sky
'I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed. I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him'
Rev 8:6-11 speaks of a similar event only that the first three trumpet judgments come first and then a war with 4 angels at the Euphrates depopulates the world by a third but the important issue is that all mentioned events precede the coming of the antichrist on the scene as the supreme leader. Celestial fire is also spoken of by Nostradamus (c.1.46, c.2.18, 5.83, 5.100 and 4.100), and Alois irlmaier who speaks of 3 days of Darkness, the Koran also speaks of three days of Darkness after which the sun rises in the west a major sign of the arrival of the Mahdi. Other prophets who spoke of rain of fire and darkness for 3 days are Padre Pio,Anna Maria Tiagi and Marie-Julie Jahenny. All this points to a destruction of a greater part of the 10 leaders by God leaving their empires and those of the 3 at the mercy of the infernal usurper.
All this still encompasses the prophecy of Revelation 13 with 10 horns on the final 7th head with the 8th king becoming the victor soon after.In Ezekiel 39:9
Then those who live in the towns of Israel will go out and use the weapons for fuel and burn them up For 7 years they will use them for fuel
The period of 7 years is a veiled hint of quelling any insurrection or uprising by burning of weapons, a 7 year peace period of a covenant signed for Daniels final week in Daniel 9;27 broken in the middle of the week that will only be peaceful in as far as the Antichrist is stamping out all opposition to his rule and oppressing the survivors. Also the coalition of the people around the middle east seems very similar to the mention of the 4 angels released at the Euphrates in Rev 9:13-19 in fact if the 4 angels are taken as 4 kings (in a war of the 6th trumpet that kills one third of the earth) and 'Abaddon' the angel of Rev 9:2-11 as a king also, then the explanation of Rev 17 of the five kings fallen before the arrival of the 3rd king of Aquilon(the 6th crown) and then the arrival of the 3rd and final antichrist(7th crown) makes sense.
In Islamic eschatology before the arrival of the Mahdi the world will be conquered by a false messiah with one eye ... a figure the Muslims call Dajjal. This figure will be slain by Isa (the Islamic version of Jesus and then Jerusalem shall be conquered by the Arab Mahdi. Interestingly a prophecy of a one eyed figure who is also ruthless is mentioned in the bible in Zachariah 11:16-17
For I am going to raise up a shepherd over the land who will not take care for the lost, or seek the young, or heal the injured, or feed the healthy but will eat the meat of the choice sheep, tearing off their hoofs. Woe to this worthless shepherd who deserts the flock! May the sword strike his arm and his right eye. May his arm be completely withered, his right eye totally blinded
The wording of this verse seems to say that this one eyed figure is a foreign invader. Also just before this figure arrives on the scene we are made to recall how the 3rd antichrist will cause astounding devastation but not by his own power because again amazingly Daniel 7:8 the horn uprooting 3 horns is echoed in Zachariah 11:6 where God said:
"For I will no longer have pity on the people of the land. I will hand everyone over to his neighbour and his king. They will oppress the land and I will not rescue them from their hands. So I pastured a flock marked for slaughter, particularly the oppressed flock. Then I took two staffs and called one favour and the other union and I pastured the flock. In one month I got rid of the 3 shepherds.
So we have a scenario where most likely the king of the North is Christian and probably according to Nostradamus is a European according to c.3.55 a king reigning in France. In c.3.41 the one eyed leader is seen to be working in tandem with a benevolent king, in c.6.42 here the one eyed is being called the prudent 'deformed one', although called equally a hideous monster in 3.41 and a halfman in 8.44.He may also be the 'plus Ultra' behind (meaning behind the scenes of the incumbent king) loved, feared and dreaded in c.6.70.
If the one eyed figure is the 3rd king of Aquilon hated by the Mahdi (king of the South) then he probably loses one of his eyes in a battle with the king of the south. His fall is probably in quatrain 2.92 where it says empire once again transferred to the dusky nation (black a colour of war in Islam), his eye plucked out by the Goshawk at Narbonne the same one dreaded as the Narbonne enemy who faces off the blind one of Arbon in c.6.56.
This particular episode of intrigue may speak of the 3rd king of a Aquilon who just before his death conquers much of the southern empire and even the holy land. He may be the one who forces a truce and peace agreement that is not honoured because of his untimely death. He is mentioned in the bible in Daniel 11:14-19 ..
In those times many will rise against the king of the south .then the king of the North will come the forces of the south will be powerless to resist ,even their best troops will not have the strength to stand against him. He will establish himself in the beautiful land and will have the power to destroy it. He will determine to come with the might of the entire kingdom and will make an alliance with the king of the south..... after this he will turn his attention to the coastlands and will take many of them, but a commander will put an end to his insolence and will turn his insolence back on him, after this he will turn back towards the fortress of his country but will stumble and fall, to be seen no more.
However it is most likely that this one eyed man is the same who betrays his king in the above verses he could be the commander spoken of in c.3.41 as a traitor. Also someone succeeding a monarch who is evil and cruel is spoken in c.6.57. While c.8.41 is definitely talking about the antichrist who will come by deceit and intrigue but will become extremely powerful.
If that is true then what follows seems to suggest that the one eyed figure is in fact the 3rd antichrist following the 3rd king of Aquilon because Daniel 11:21-24 says:
He (the 3rd king of Aquilon) will be succeeded by a contemptible person (the real antichrist) who was not given the honor of royalty .. he will invade the kingdom .. and seize it by intrigue, he will act deceitfully ,and with only a few people he will rise to power. Then an overwhelming army will be will be swept away before him .. When the richest provinces feel secure, he will invade them and will do what neither his fathers nor his forefathers did. He will distribute plunder loot and wealth among his followers .. he will plot the overthrow of fortresses
While all this is going on what about the mysterious Mahdi?? Certainly in Islamic eschatology he seems the perfect fit for the antichrist because according to the hadith he has power over the weather, wages war on all and conquers Jerusalem, he signs a peace agreement with a Jew for about 7 years and he has a prophet (who Muslims claim is the uncrucified Jesus) for a spokesperson who makes all pledge allegiance to him (sounds a lot like the false prophet). He is definitely the figure of c.1.76, c.2.30 and c.3.59 (this is a very rich quatrain speaking of a barbarian empire usurped by the 3rd, this 3rd may mean the 3rd and final antichrist, but more specifically it speaks of 3 persons who subdue the Islamic (Barbarian) empire, the 1st is the Great Goat or Chyren of c.2.79 and c.6.70, the second is the 3rd king of Aquilon who I think is Ogmios of c.5.80 and Daniel 11:14-19. So here is a third figure finally subduing the Islamic empire. This is most likely the individual called the hungry mule in c.2.60 the 3rd and final antichrist. The fact that he will put a great part of his own people to death, applies to the antichrist even if he is not the Mahdi because in any case the Antichrist as I discuss below is part Celtic/Gallic and part Semite. While this quatrain also applies to the Mahdi because if he is the leader of the Gog and Magog coalition of Ezekiel 38 (WW4) he will still lead to a great destruction of his own people. The fourth struck by him seems to call Gog of Magog conflict WW4 as I have always thought .. if the fourth means one of the 4 heads of the 3rd empire or one of the four horns in Daniel 8:9 a quarter of the world at the time then it still means the Mahdi could well be the 3rd antichrist.
Meanwhile c.2.93 says in Avignon France a chief of a whole empire (if we keep in mind the 3rd antichrist a foreigner on French soil as mother Shipton said) will make a stop at desolated Paris .. tri cast hold the anger of Hannibal (of 2.30) meaning 3 again face the wrath of Hannibal eerily similar to Daniel 7:8
Of course it is possible for the Mahdi to be the antichrist if as c.3.59 suggests he calls his Muslim brothers against Israel only to have them annihilated as said in Rev 16:13 when
Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are the spirits of demons performing miraculous signs and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for battle of the great God almighty
Though I personally think the Mahdi is the king of the south. For this to make sense though the 3rd antichrist is connected to the Semites by blood. The antichrist must be some sort of an Arab-Jew who turns against the Arabs in particular. Troy in ancient times was Asia minor (modern day Turkey) and in Daniel the king of the north may well be a Turk, there is a clue in c.5.74 of someone of Trojan blood being born in Germany who drives out foreign Arabs and return the Church to its pristine pre-eminence. This must seem a very clever ploy by a Pseudo-messiah if he were indeed the antichrist. This argument for this king being the figure from the north is strengthened by a quatrain eerily similar to c.8.77 which is c.2.60 it says:
The Punic faith broken in the East,
Ganges, Jordan, and Rhone, Loire, and Tagus will change:
When the hunger of the mule will be satiated,
Fleet sprinkles, blood and bodies will swim.
Now the Punic wars were between the Romans (northerners) and Carthagians (Southerners) and the former called the latter 'Poeni'. This is exactly what Daniel speaks about throughout chapter 11. Since the Punic faith is Islam and it is broken (not only in this quatrain but in the epistle) then this rules out the Mahdi as being the antichrist, but he must be the leader of one of the 3 surviving kingdoms or one who unites 3 kingdoms against the true antichrist, which kingdoms the spawn of Satan duly annihilates. The strength of the final antichrist seems to be as immense as that of Alexander the great because his empire stretches from France to India a truly Eurasian emperor. The fact that blood and bodies will swim is a vivid reiteration of c.8.77 which says red hail, blood and bodies covering the earth.
Interestingly a link is made between the French and the Muslims through one who is of Gallic and Punic blood called the great Neptune of the deep sea in c.2.78 further mentioned as an individual with trident soldiers in c.2.59 again talking of a war at Narbonne. This could be reference to the goat of Daniel who comes to beat the 2nd antichrist (Ram) without touching land OR AND ESPECIALLY in the context of the 3rd antichrist. Moreover it is not lost on us that in Rev 13 the beast rises out of the sea. The quatrain seems to mark him out as a traitor of Arab/Jew heritage definitely part Caucasian(Gallic-Celtic), part Semite that brings great destruction upon the Middle east particularly a future Islamic caliphate of Hannibal.
Another similar prophecy that adds detail is in the almanac of 1559 which says
From the house seven through death in mortal
Hail, tempest, pestilent evil, furies:
King of the East all the West in flight,
He will subjugate his former conquerors.
Here again it seems to speak of the death of 7 and after initial reversals the king of the east will terrify all the west and subjugate all his former conquerors. If this quatrain is correct then the western powers include the former conquerors of the east. The first conqueror is the goat with one horn during the reign of the 2nd antichrist (Chyren) and the second conqueror is the 3rd king of Aquilon (Ogmios) of Daniel 11:14-19 who battles the Mahdi, the 3rd is in fact the 3rd antichrist himself. Either he or the Mahdi fit in as being called a new King of the East. Which again adds credibility that this figure is the one who follows this 3rdking of Aquilon but he hails from the East(I think here it means the near or middle east hence again a suspicion of this being the Mahdi).
Again a figure called 'the one of Genoa' who is terribly wounded particularly similar to the wounding in Zachariah on the arm does seem to appear in Nostradamus quatrains twice, in c.8.45 and again in 5.28 where tantalizingly this figure is wounded, stabbed in the chest and yet lives and in the same quatrain, a mysterious 3 against him shall face the wrath of war and steel. Also a very terrible figure called Raypoz in 6.81 described as inhuman with a black, cruel and cold heart and especially c.9.44 he is seen to terrify Genoa before whose coming the sky will show signs. All these quatrains seem to point a finger at the person who fills the profile of the antichrist without mentioning him. According to my reading the 3rd antichrist is Raypoz, the one of Genoa and I believe he will be part Celtic (the fifth Hercules) but also part Semitic (probably Arab .. not necessarily Jewish) because some other quatrains do substantiate this.
First of all before
his coming in c.9.44 the sky shows signs (as a harbinger of
doom). More importantly however the one of Genoa or around Geneva
is said to experience grave wounding. In part similar to
Zacheriah 11:16-17 which says the antichrists eye may be blinded
and his hand will be shriveled, maybe this will be natural but I
think it still applies to a double description of
his wounded hand. First in quatrain 8.45
his hand in a sling and his leg bandaged,
the younger brother of Calais will reach far.
At the word of the watch, the death will be delayed,
then he will bleed at Easter in the Temple.
This really seems
to be zooming in on the antichrist. If he is the French one eyed
king then that is just a bonus but look at the detail of him
reaching far (beyond France ... consider c.2.60) also his death
is delayed. This seems to speak of the antichrist who is
grievously wounded but does not die but resurrects. What is more
perhaps he resurrects in the temple. This must be the Jewish
temple he bleeds there perhaps mimicking the bleeding of Christ
as an atonement who knows what happens in the detail but all I
know this quatrain seems to be substantiated by another one very
His arm hung and leg bound,
Face pale, dagger hidden in his bosom,
Three who will be sworn in the fray
Against the great one of Genoa will the steel be unleashed.
Here also Raypoz who I believe is the great one of Genoa has his arm hung, his leg bound is perhaps wounded by a dagger and survives because the 3 who are sworn (read united) in the fray/fight against this 'Great one of Genoa' will have steel or war unleashed against them. I believe his revenge is summed up in c.6.81 or c.10.27 where he is called the fifth Hercules.
Also c.5.2 seems to mirror a book of revelation conspiracy where 7 conspirators go against the 3 again using fleets (maybe this is speaking of the 2nd antichrist in WW3 but one cannot be sure) .This same very scenario is repeated in c.2.34. While c.10.27 seems to even name 3 people set back by the fifth one (probably the 5th horn of Daniel (8:9-12) that opens the temple (3rd temple) by war. Again here we see a quatrain talking about the antichrist of Revelation.
Of course the scariest and most definitive quatrains on the 3rd and final antichrist are c.8.77, 9.51 and c.10.10:
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.
Against the red ones sects will conspire,
Fire, water, steel, rope through peace will weaken:
On the point of dying those who will plot,
Except one who above all the world will ruin.
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.
The 3rd antichrist's death seems to be explained as a supernatural event from the sky in c.2.56.
All in all, I see only 3 antichrists .Yes the crowns on the beast are 7, I agree and five fall before the 3rd king of Aquilon (6th king) and the final Antichrist (7th King .. the 8th is his image or his false prophet or himself after his miraculous recovery) but only 3 antichrists exist because as I said one heralds the birth of Israel riding the red horse (Hitler), the 2nd one from the Tartary riding the black horse comes during the putting up of the 3rd temple as clued in by the epistle .. I think the black colour speaks of him being the one in c.1.9, c 5.23 being called the great of Africa. So the 2nd antichrist may be an African Arab. My interpretation says that between the 3rd black horseman and the 4th pale horseman the 3rd empire of four leopard heads crystallizes and this empire gives way to the 4th empire of 10 horns which is existent during the pale horse period and during which time the final antichrist, the son of perdition, the beast from hell is born, 7 of the 10 horns are first annihilated by God in the Trumpets as mentioned in c.2.18 during the war of Gog and Magog and the remaining 3 succumb to the true antichrist.
The 3rd and final one represented by death and hell on the pale horse. He is part Gallic/Celtic part Semite; in my view the infamous Raypoz and poses as God and profanes the 3rd temple.
The Day of the Lord God coming at Armageddon is all explained in Revelation 6. This is the be all end all final act after all the 4 horsemen have played their part and finally it is Gods turn to set up his rule.
watched as he opened the 6th
seal there was a great earthquake, the sun turned black like
sackcloth made of hair, the whole moon turned blood red and the
stars in the sky fell to earth as late figs drop from a fig tree
when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll
rolling up and every mountain and island was removed from its
place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes and generals, the
rich, the mighty and every slave and every free man hid in caves
and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the
mountains and rocks fall on us and hide us from the face of
him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.
This now speaks
of Jesus return spoken of in the same detail in Joel
2:10-11, Zacheriah 14:4-6, Isaiah 13:9-13 and by Jesus himself in
There is an identical and even more vivid text that that echoes Rev 6:12 and speaks to the people shuddering at the breaking of the 6th seal it is Isaiah 24:17-23 it says
and pit and snare await you O people of the earth. Whoever flees
at the sound of terror will fall into a pit, whoever climbs out
of the pit will be caught in a snare. The floodgates of the
heavens are opened, the foundations of the earth shake. The earth
is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is thoroughly
shaken. The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in
the wind so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it
falls never to rise again. In that day the lord will punish the
powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below.
They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon,
they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days
(the millennium). The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed for
the lord almighty will reign on Mt Zion and in Jerusalem and
before its elders in glory
This passage is identical but more detailed to what happens upon the Lords return upon opening the 6th seal. So the seals are a summation in brief of the entire period from the 1st horseman, the 1st beast seen by Daniel until the gathering of the chosen before god in heaven The great multitude in white robes spoken of in Rev 7:9-17.

The true meaning of life is a mystery, one of which even God has been reluctant to give us the answer to; declaring only that it is His love he cares to share with you. But is it really a case of having faith and believing that one day we will know the reason why? For those who wonder about mankind's existance, there is no right or wrong answer I can state here, because those who find the truth are soon caught up into a strange world of illusion where nothing is quite as it appears. Designed to confuse any poor soul who dares to question YHWH's motives, it is best advised for many that you take his word for it. But for those who dare to use curiousity and question, let me present a view which most do not even consider.
In the beginning ... Satan was the first to start raising suspicion, upon which a number of angels followed suit and so raged a huge argument in the heavens. But Satan's cause has never been introduced as anything other than a vain attempt to gain control for the sake of power. So if that's the case, why is this altercation still going on?
The Bible says nothing of what is taking place behind the scenes, apart from continually touching on the spiritual war that goes on and how to protect yourself properly ... nothing more than that is said. To add further ... there are very few out there who can make sense of a complicated explanation in the first place.
The reason for this is simple: because the systems of the main religions became based on the concept of one God being the loving creator of everything, the ancient Gods were forced to portray themselves as a pantheon. It is this 'one God fits all' principal that is a hindrance to anyone trying to find an answer, because how can a God who clearly tells us He is a loving entity .... create Evil? This is where Satan began to question YHWH's creativity and so explored what Evil was. The answer he found quickly became an obsession; not just because Satan now understood evil, but because he wanted everyone to understand evil. God on the other hand has always maintained only HE should understand evil in order to protect us from it.
For those who would label me a Satanist, I do not follow his example. Nor am I taking YHWH's side. Instead ... I did choose not to intervene in either and see how this panned out. However, for those who are paying close attention, you will know why now that it is becoming impossible for anyone to stand back and not see what is about to unfold.
God designed this universe with its secrets and now science is pushing technology to answer those questions ... and what is being discovered by scientists all over the world is having a very adverse effect. Because science is now beginning to push God out of the equation. For those who do not understand the ramifications of this action, think about what I am saying very carefully. In a world where science can prove God is not the only one who can create miracles ... that God is not the only entity who can do magical things ... man can be as powerful as a God.
For anyone taking this thought lightly and passing it off as nonsense, you will be the worst caught out by the progression. 2012 may come in the form of Planet X or WWIII or extraterrestials showing up or even Satan making his grand entrance, but one thing is eye-poppingly clear to anyone intelligent at this time: it is the start of something far more coherent than most will get to understand and we should be helping to prepare the foundations. There are those out there who have been patiently waiting a long time for this presentiment and now a completion of all their blood ... sweat ... and sacrifice is about to become mouthwateringly tangible.
There is no coincidence in behaviour of certain famous people either, because this is YHWH's ultimate plan: that we all intrinsically work for him, no matter if we are on the side of good or bad. This is because a true creator of everything would not only feel responsible but would be compelled to be both good and evil, both love and hate ...... Right? This is especially true in order for Him not to miss an opportunity to wage war on all humanity, something YHWH even admits is His plan in Revelations. Believe me when I say this .... no one is safe .... not even TPTB that have worked so hard for their goal!
For the purpose of those who think they know the players' agendas, they are ultimately worshippers of the plan under which one has unified end ambition, irregardless of how he or she may appear. They remain in position by roping in huge stars to help them sustain a distant obscurity, while all the time they seductively get their worship message across. They are not truly the enemy, but have also found themselves victims to the plot and are scared of what is going to happen to them if they stop having all the power.
As for those who do fall for 'the fame game,' I will admit this about one person out there: a promise is a promise, and for everyone's sake, I have kept mine. I have watched you come so awkwardly close on many an occasion and said or done nothing, but how on earth can you not see why you continually fail to rally someone home? About another glamourous person I also admit, hiding behind the image of daddy is not going to protect you forever, see how he declines the pleasure of even the greatest shining star? It's either his way or we'll end up going to hell in a beautiful pea green boat!
God on the other hand is forcing everyone to prepare for a battle which can not only be deemed counterproductive to His intention now but is overly promoted as the answer to everyone's problems. With a few simple agreements this war can not only be avoided ... it need not even be necessary in order to achieve a moral goal which suits all involved (that includes all life). The threatening acts in Revelations have now come to defeat the whole objective of what it is to being a LOVING God, but as some know, being held responsible or accountable in the courts of heaven, it is all too easy to shift blame when you know how to precisely apply the rules.
An amicable return to the ancient religion and Gods of old is a get out of jail free card for those who will be held liable (that includes all life) and a pragmatic way forward for those who are not. The question left remaining to everyone now is, how much does your God truly love you?
All I can say is ... Get behind me Satan.
Revelation 10:4, 7 ~
when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to
write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up
those things which
the seven thunders uttered, and write them not ... But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God
should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
A mystery is secret knowledge. To solve a mystery is to know a secret. God has His secrets. Discover His secrets and you expose God for what He is. - MM

Hell is not below you, nor is Heaven above. When you look "out there" ... where are you really looking?
The Hollow Earth hypothesis was dismissed as a crackpot theory inspired by folklore, mythology, and various religious beliefs well over one hundred years ago. Its genesis literally lies in the concept of a subterranean underworld called Hades, Sheol, and Hell ... a place wherein the wraiths of dead ancestors either resided or were punished for all eternity. Yet, for well over two hundred years, belief prevailed within the scientific community that the earth was a hollow shell with an interior atmosphere, subterranean civilisations and continent, and even an internal sun to warm the underworld inhabitants. Indeed, intricate maps exist of the interior earth that include the kingdom of Atvatabar and, near the core, the great city of Agartha.
In 1818, a theory subscribed to by none less than astronomer, mathemetician, and physicist Sir Edmond Halley was further expanded by John Cleves Symmes, Jr. who claimed that the Earth consisted of a hollow shell 800 miles thick, with openings about 1400 miles across at both poles. These holes allowed access to four inner shells, each one consecutively smaller in size. These openings later became known as "Symmes Holes."
By the early 20th Century the Hollow Earth theory had been largely "debunked" and was relegated to the province of pseudoscience and conspiracy theory.
However, in the 1920s, 1930s and early 1940s, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party continued to keep the concept alive and well. It is believed that occultists who had joined the Thule Society (Thule Gesellschaft), which eventually evolved into the Nazi Party, opened up the reality of a Hollow Earth to Adolf Hitler. The name, Thule, refers to the capital of the legendary polar country Hyperborea. Also referred to as Ultima Thule, it was supposedly the gateway to another world and reputedly stood at the portal of the Hollow Earth. Hitler became obsessed with reaching Ultima Thule and the hidden lands inside the hollow earth.
As time passed, Hitler came to the conclusion that humanity was living on the inside, concave surface of a hollow earth (the Inverted Hollow Earth Theory, discussed later in this article). Sending an expedition to Iceland in 1943, Hitler, believing the sky was part of an all-encompassing shell, attempted to bounce radar waves off of it to detect British Naval activity. The mission was a failure, of course.
After World War II, author Ernst Zundel wrote a book entitled UFOs - Nazi Secret Weapons? claiming that Hitler and his last battalion had boarded submarines at the end of the war, escaped to Argentina, and then established a base for flying saucers in the hole leading to the inside of the Earth at the South Pole.
There is only one concrete shred of evidence that Hitler may have proven the concept of a hollow earth. An expedition was reportedly planned by der Führer to enter the southern Symmes Hole in Antarctica. In 1944, Admiral Karl Dönitz claimed that this hole was breached and a fortification for Hitler's invincible fleet had been established "in the midst of the eternal ice." This claim has never been proven.
The Hollow Earth Theory Rescued
Still, one last endeavour took place before the 1940s were over that only recently provided sound evidence supporting the Hollow Earth hypothesis.
Admiral Richard B. Byrd led an exploration flight over the North Pole in February 1947, apparently passing through a large Symmes hole. Admiral Byrd kept a log of his flight in a private diary which was not discovered until 1995.
Early in the flight Byrd reported turbulence and then vast, strangely coloured ice formations below: yellow, red and purple. The compasses went wild and Byrd found himself sighting a mountain range, then a lush green valley with a small river running through it. Byrd then beheld what no living human in over 30,000 years has seen: a prehistoric, wooly mammoth.
Further along, he saw rolling hills and what appeared to be a large city, when he became aware of strange aircraft, disc-shaped, like UFOs. They closed in on his plane and he could see swastika-type markings on them, yet they were not quite like Nazi swastikas (the word 'swastika,' incidentally, means 'source' amongst other definitions, and represents eternal cause or the fountain of creation).
Byrd then noted that his plane was caught in an invisible force field which was guiding him. A voice spoke over his radio in English with an Norwegian accent: 'Welcome, Admiral, to our domain. We shall land you in exactly seven minutes! Relax, Admiral, you are in good hands.' Upon landing, he noted several men approaching on foot; tall with blond hair. In the distance again he could see a large shimmering city pulsating with rainbow hues of colour ... a futuristic city made of crystal. The log ended there, but the diary continued on 'from memory' events in the city and Byrd's audience with the master of the domain of the kingdom of Arianni.
We must, however, stick to the events in the log only, which is much closer to hard evidence than a recollection of an event that may or may not have occurred.
After a briefing with officials at the Pentagon, Byrd was sworn to secrecy. Then came his final words ten years later, in an authentic diary that has always been open to public view:
"December 25, 1956 these last few years since 1947 have not been so kind. I now make my final entry in this singular diary. In closing I must state that I have faithfully kept this matter secret as directed all these years. It has been completely against my values and moral rights. Now I seem to sense a long night coming on and this secret will not die with me, but as truth shall, it shall triumph. It is the only hope for all mankind. I have seen and it has quickened my spirit and set me free. I have done my duty towards the monstrous military industrial complex. Now the long night of the Arctic ends, the brilliant sunshine of truth shall come again, and those who are of darkness shall fail in flight. For I have seen that land beyond the poles, the center of the great unknown."
Highlights described in Byrd's log of his north polar flight, February 1947
It is little wonder that so many sightings of military aircraft and UFOs have occurred at both the north and south polar regions. These portals are quite obviously being guarded.
Even Nasa cannot hide the truth that is supported by its own data. In 1968, a satellite photo of Earth was published that actually showed a large hole over the north polar region. The specifications of this circular gap closely cooresponded to those calculations given by John Cleves Symmes, Jr.
At right, we can see the satellite image for ourselves, the hole clearly visible.
Taken together with Byrd's written account in a once-private flight log of his journey through the northern pole and being sworn to secrecy by Pentagon officials, alluded to again in no uncertain terms at the conclusion of a very public diary, this Nasa photo supports the hollow earth concept and the theories of Symmes' huge polar holes.
Irregardless, today most people consider belief in such a theory as "Hollow Earth" as preposterous and any evidence suggesting the contrary as mere "conspiracy theory"; yet many of these same people continue to cling to a religious doctrine that preaches that an assigned place of eternal damnation exists miles beneath their very feet.
However, the problem with the Hollow Earth Theory is not that it is wrong, but that it is only partially correct.
To understand why, we must review the somewhat more obscure Inverted Hollow Earth Theory, including the claims of its strangest but most famous proponent, Cyrus Teed (1839-1908).
The Doctrine and Covenants, 88:104 ~
this shall be the sound of his trump, saying to all people, both
in heaven and in earth, and that are under the earth - for every
ear shall hear it,
and every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess, while they hear the sound of the trump ...
In this model, WE are living on the concave surface of the interior of a hollow earth, held to the ground by centrifugal force as the Earth rotates.
Thus, as we look "outwards" into space at the planets, moon, stars, and sun, we are actually gazing "inwards" at the interior space of earth. Leonard Euler, a swiss mathematician, theorised that a central sun 600 miles in diameter was positioned at the central point of this inner space. Teed, however, maintained the entire universe was contained within the 8,000 miles of inner space of a hollow, concave (inverted) earth. According to Teed, the Moon was half a mile across and some 3,933 miles over our heads. The Sun, he claimed was only 8 feet across, half dark and half light. As the Sun turned it gave the appearance of a sunset and sunrise. The stars were actually tiny, glistening chunks of ice suspended deep within the great dark hollow of inner space. Thus, distance and size was an illusion that could be partially explained by the nature of light and the science of optics. In Teed's theory, the deeper into "outer space" one goes, the smaller one becomes.
Extrapolating from that view, one might then conclude that inches would seem like miles until ultimately one reaches a microscopic size when molecules seem like solar systems and atoms like planets. Still, the distance of a millionth of an inch would seem like light years in distance and take many years to travel. There is nothing on paper indicating that Teed extrapolated his inner space on a microscopic level or thought in terms of micro-inches = light years (the theory of light travel/distance still another century away), but this would be the logical outcome of his general concept.
Interestingly enough, this is the same concept astronomers have applied to what it would be like to be captured and pulled into a black hole.
Teed could also never explain why the stars, mere bits of reflective ice that he maintained them to be, held such stable positions, so stable that their movements can be calculated, and their patterns mapped as constellations.
Nor is it likely that our sense of gravity is being created by centrifugal force as the Earth rotates like the inside of a spinning barrel. The Earth remains forever stationary as the universe inside of it rotates.
There is also no reason to subscribe to the idea that the sun is at the center of the inverted hollow earth. The center of our inner space should conform to whatever part of the Milky Way galaxy astronomers have discovered it to be. There may well be more distant galaxies as observed: but remember that by the time one reaches these great depths of inner space, shrinking continuously in size, a micro-inch may be like a thousand light years ... and take a thousand years to travel as well.
It is the inverted world view which further modified the hollow earth theory. What is more, it is a theory that cannot be totally dismissed. Teed's exact measurements for the inner space of the hollow earth, the moon, sun, and planets should understandably raise many eyebrows. Neverthless, however off his measurements may actually be, the general concept is still one with much scientific merit. It was during Teed's lifetime that actual experiments were conducted with light, optics, and distance, the results of which, to this very day, remain subject to debate and consideration.
One very remarkable experiment was conducted by a supporter of Teed's: Ulysses Grant Morrow.
On July 25, 1896, Morrow, a newspaper editor, conducted an experiment on the Old Illinois Drainage Canal, Summit, Illinois.
He was seeking to demonstrate that the surface of the earth was curved: when he found that his target marker, eighteen inches above water level and five miles distant, was clearly visible he concluded that the Earth's surface was concavely curved, in line with the expectations of his sponsors, the Koreshan Unity society. The findings were dismissed by critics as the result of atmospheric refraction.
A more ambitious experiment was conducted the following year on May 5, 1897, in Naples, Florida, but data proving curvature of the earth upwards was inconclusive, although its exact circumference was correctly computed.
If the earth is a hollow globe and we are living on the inside of it, why is it we cannot see the earth stretching upwards in the distance and wrapping itself above our heads in all directions?
According to Teed, we can't see to the other side of the hollow Earth's surface, because of "intervening dense atmospheres." The dense atmosphere in the center of the sphere prevents observers from looking up into the sky and seeing the other side of the world.
However, I would add also that the earth would not be able to reflect sufficient light for our eyes to distinguish it. Thousands, even hundreds, of miles away from us, including above our heads, darkness would absorb any light there might be. If a wall of earth could be seen, refraction would make it impossible to perceive it as anything other than a tiny dim point of light lost in the stars.
This explains another question: why is it that astronauts and space telescopes see the earth as a bright blue globe if they are looking at a concave surface from "inner space" rather than from outer space? Doesn't that disprove an inverted hollow earth?
No. One has to understand how light can fool the human eye ... and again it has to do with the process known as refraction. What astronauts are actually seeing is light bending away from the earth, wrapping around itself so that it appears to be a globe. In an inverted world, light from an object would be inverted, upside down, and the opposite of what it truly is. The effect of seeing the earth as a round globe in space is similar to how an object on earth appears if one looks at it through binoculars or a small telescope backwards.
Since so much of our reality is based on light, is it not clear that a good portion of our perception of reality is actually an illusion?
Take the colour wheel, for example. Every school child is taught that the actual colour of an object is opposite to the colour we see on the wheel. Thus, grass is not actually green but magenta! Do you trust your eyes now?
One cannot dismiss either what scientists tell us about our planet being a spinning globe upon which we live or the idea of an inverted hollow earth where we live on the inside. Neither concept can be disproven and, in fact, both models may be correct. After all, light can bend either way. Thus, we may be living in a dual reality of external and internal universes.
At this point we go one step further.
The Dual Universe: Two Universes Connected at the Poles
If we do indeed live on the inside of a huge concave earth with its own inner universe ("outer space"), knowing that today practically every square inch of this planet has been mapped, where do we find the strange land formations, a prehistoric island or continent, and a huge futuristic metropolis Admiral Richard B. Byrd described in his flight log? Remember, Byrd passed through a hole at the northern pole. He could not have traveled inside the earth, since he was already on the inside!
Therefore, it would appear that Byrd passed through the Earth's northern pole and simultaneously entered the southern pole of an adjacent inverted world, and, thus, another universe!
As my graphic at right illustrates, the north pole of our inverted world is also the south pole of the neighbouring inverted world.
We are speaking not of planets, of course, but of inverted worlds with entire universes filling their inner spaces. Thus, as my model demonstrates, there may be at least two parallel universes. As Byrd discovered without realising it, travel between the two "inverted world" universes is possible via the mutual pole.
Also, theoretically, if one travelled from this universe to the next universe and progressed all the way to its northern pole, passing through it would bring the traveler back to the Earth's southern pole. This is difficult to illustrate, but it is logical in a two-universe system.
This also paves the way for the possiblity that there are a number of other universes connected together.
Travel through Earth's southern pole and one might enter the northern pole of a third neighbouring universe, as we can see in the next graphic below. This shows the same principal as above, however we now have a model for a three-universe system.
The Pearls of String
Taking things a step further, there could well be many such universes beyond those of our neighbours ... all connected at the poles like pearls of a string.
We are then left with what may be either a string of pearls extended in a line of finite or infinite length OR, as the next model shows, a circular or ovalar "necklace" of pearls of unknown number.
By chance, there happen to be 16 in this model that I constructed, but the number could be any number, less than this number, or many many times larger than this number.
In future articles we must address ourselves to the concept of a dual universe ... ours and the one next to ours. It is the only model for which we can actually provide evidence.
But the theory, nevertheless, begs us to consider that there may indeed be many such universes connected together!
"Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate"
October 2007- December 2008: The 14-Month Vestibule
April 26, 2010 (10:27 AM EDT): Do not expect to see the 2008 pages vanish anytime soon. Indeed, I may bring back a special page covering predictions made for October, November, and December 2007, including events that were fulfilled during those final three months of 2007 that had been projected to be fulfilled earlier in the year. Why should be obvious to anyone who has been following my articles since 2007 concerning the Hopi Indian Prophecy in Rock and Mankind's departure from the "Lower path" and decision to instead walk the "Jagged path." I, in turn, and not the Hopi, broke the Jagged Path down into two possible scenarios: Alternative Future One during which humanity would crash and burn into World War III and the Passage of Nibiru in 2009 and suffer their horrible aftermath in 2010 and beyond vs Alternative Future Two during which time humanity would stall the war and Planet X until 2012-2013, bringing on the final destruction by 2016.
October 2007-December 2008 represents the place of decision, the anteroom, where those who rule our planet, and we as individuals, made the decision to choose the Jagged Path.
I call this period The Vestibule after Dante's Canto III of The Inferno. The place is like an anteroom or a foyer, and not part of Hell-proper. In this vestibule, Dante saw the plan of symbolic retribution that would make up the rest of the story. Dante was horrified at the sight before him as he viewed the punishment of the uncommitted. Here the souls of those who, in life, took no stand, kept no promises, and honoured no loyalties forever chased after an ever-moving flag or banner, all the while surrounded by horrible fetid air and stinging insects.
Very appropros, no? The Hopi also repesented the final year before the Jagged Path would be embarked upon as a great anteroom or foyer. The analogy is exact.
It was Comet Holmes, which arrived exactly when I predicted it would appear, in October 2007, that ushered in the final 14 months of decision. The fate of Pakistan and the future of US foreign policy was sealed by the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December 2007 ... exactly as I warned. No: Benazir Bhutto did not have to die. My warning to her was quite clear since the month of April 2007: do not return to Pakistan to lead. You will die before the year ends if you do. During the year of decision, 2008, Barack Obama, and not Hillary Clinton or John McCain , was elected President. TPTB had made their choice as to who would lead us all into the kingdom of darkness. But the one prediction that I made that would tell us definitely if we had chosen the Jagged Path was the Stock Market Crash (or series of crashes) of October 2008 ... and the global economic collapse that would follow. Upon that black month mankind's fate was already sealed irregardless of who won the US presidential election. It did not matter if the next madness would follow, the start of World War III in the Middle East. The War in Gaza of December 2009-January 2010, an event that would normally have expanded into Lebanon and risked spreading even further, was ended abruptly after a month of fighting. We entered upon the Jagged Path gingerly, assuring that our collective destruction would be postponed until 2012 or 2013. Even the great Swine Flu Pandemic I accurately predicted would arrive in autumn 2009 failed to take many lives. Had 2009 not been a year of mitigation, at least 25 million and possibly 100 million souls would have perished from the plague.
But now we see the time for mitigation has seemingly ended. Massive earthquakes, deluges, storms, and volcanic eruptions are becoming weekly occurrences. A brown dwarf star named Gliese 170 has been identified by Nasa as heading our way and being capable of bringing about not only great destruction for our world, but the extinction of humanity. The global economy has been triggering rioting in Greece, protests and great uncertainty in the other EU nations such as France, Britain, and Italy. The policies of the Obama administration are debated and challenged by the American people who know that things are not as their government says they are. And war is finally in the air ... with Syria and Israel making mutual threats to annihilate each other with nuclear and chemical weapons as US-Israeli resolve to end the nuclear ambitions of Iran through overwhelming military force grows increasingly ominous.
Thus, the Vestibule remains, late 2007 and 2008 remain on this page, not only to remind us of the choices we made ... but to demonstrate that some of the events predicted to occur during those 14 months were held back by two years or more due to the decision-making process that was concluded in October, November, and December 2008 and the new era of darkness embarked upon in January 2009 ... the Jagged Path.
Yet the Hopi have offered us hope. We can return to the Lower Path of spiritual wisdom. But only when we realise that everything we held was true about religion and God has been distorted beyond all belief ... and arrive at the truth of who we are and why.
