The second anti-Christ Nostradamus
wrote about was "a man stained with murder...the great enemy of the
human race...one who was worse than any who had gone before...bloody
and inhuman." Experts are in agreement that the sixteenth century
prophet was referring to Adolf Hitler.
Out of the deepest
part of the west of Europe,
From poor people a
young child shall be born,
Who with his tongue
shall seduce many people,
His fame shall
increase in the Eastern Kingdom.
Adolf Hitler, born in Austria of poor parents, with his knowledge of
mob psychology and powers of speech, was successful in seducing many
people , even in the Eastern Empire of Japan. In some quatrains
Nostradamus refers to Hitler as the child or sometimes captain of
Germany. Here are two examples:
He shall come to
tyrannize the land.
He shall raise up a
hatred that had long been dormant.
The child of
Germany observes no law.
Cries, and tears,
fire, blood, and battle.
A captain of
Germany shall come to yield himself by false hope,
So that his revolt
shall cause great bloodshed.
All of these images certainly describe Adolf Hitler. After
seducing his people, Hitler ignored all treaties and began a massive
invasion of Europe. In the following verse, some experts say that
Nostradamus actually referred to Hitler by name but missed by one
letter. (A side note : "Hister" is the ancient name for the river
Beasts wild with
hunger will cross the rivers
The greater part of
the battlefield will be against Hister.
Finally, Nostradamus sums up Hitler's life and even predicts the fact
that his death in Berlin in 1945 would never be confirmed:
Near the Rhine from
the Austrian mountains
Will be born a
great man of the people, come too late.
A man who will
defend Poland and Hungary
And whose fate will
never be certain.
The 3rd and final Anti-Christ
According to Nostradamus, the first two
anti-Christs were extremely evil, and history has shown this to be so;
however, Nostradamus speaks of a third anti-Christ who is more hideous
than all the others combined. Some have said Sadaam Hussein, the
dictator from Iraq (proved false now), or even Osama Bin Laden. Could
he be this evil tyrant? Others say that he has not yet
appeared. What does Nostradamus say about this third
anti-Christ? First, Nostradamus tells us he will come from the
Out of the country
of Greater Arabia Shall be born a strong master of Mohammed,
He will enter
Europe wearing a blue turban.
He will be the
terror of mankind.
Never more horror.
Here, Nostradamus says that a man from Greater Arabia will lead his
forces on an invasion through Europe. This invasion will start a
third world war that will be far worse than all the other wars put
together. When will all this take place? In one quatrain
Nostradamus gives us an exact date in which the war will be well under
In the year 1999
and seven months
From the sky will
come the great King of Terror.
He will bring back
to life the King of the Mongols;
Before and after
Nostradamus predicts the war will begin shortly before the year
1999. It doesn't make much sense to this author, but many are now
saying that the 'war' was set 'in motion' in 1999, and now after
Septermeber 11th these things are going to come true... as we are now
'at war with terror.' Interpret it how you will. He also tells us
how long the war will last.
The war will last seven and twenty years.
(so 27 years)
Nostradamus says that the war will be so terrible that the world will
come face to face with final annihilation. Here, he implies that
the war might involve some kind of horrible weapon, possibly
nuclear. Nostradamus tells what the first target will be.
The sky will burn
at forty-five degrees.
Fire approaches the
great new city.
In this phrase, Nostradamus refers to a great city in the new world of
America near forty-five degrees latitude. Experts agree this
could only be New York. I know many of you are thinking of other
websites that claim this means he predicted September 11th. Again,
interpret it how you will. The sky did burn at 45 degrees, but New York
was not destroyed, nor was it a nuclear attack.
By fire he will
destroy their city,
A cold and cruel
Blood will pour,
Mercy to none.
Although Nostradamus 's predictions for our future sound frightening,
the accuracy and dates he gave do not seem to flow. Are they being
misinterpreted, or are they just plain wrong? Is the New City at 45
degrees yet to be destroyed? He does give us some hope by telling us
how this third world war will end. He says it will end as a
result of an unexpected alliance.
When those of the
Northern Pole are united,
In the East will be
great fear and dread...
One day the two
great leaders will be friends;
Their great powers
will be seen to grow.
The New Land will
be at the height of its power:
To the man of blood
the number is reported.
Again, the new land was a common term used by Nostradamus to refer to
what we now call America. The countries of the northern pole
could be Russia and the United States. We have recently seen the
breakdown of Communism in Russia and an increasing friendship between
Russia and the U.S. Perhaps the two countries will work together
against the source of evil.
The End of the World
Of course, not only have the "experts" on the
prophets not always been correct - the seers themselves have not always
been quite so accurate in their forecasts. Although people keep
claiming that "it's the world will end" they often ignore other
prophecies he wrote. Nostradamus NEVER said the world would end in
1666, 1999, 2012, 2096, or any of those years. In fact, he was quite
clear we would survive through all of these other conflicts, and if we
took it upon ourselves, we could change / prevent what was indeed going
Time will tell if the Iraq conflict or, indeed, the World Trade Center
attack had put the spark to a bigger barrel. As for the end of the
world... Nostradamus predicted it to be the year 3786 or 3797,
depending on which Nostradamus expert you believe.
So, some of the historical events may have Nostradamus predicted were
the war with Napoleon, the American Revolution, the Civil War, the rise
and the fall of Hitler, events in the British monarchy such as the
abdication of Edward VIII, and the assassinations of Lincoln and John
and Robert Kennedy. He also predicted three reigns of terror by persons
he named as ?antichrists?.
What Nostradamus did prophesy was that a great war would come sometime
during the last five years of the 20th century, presaged by famine,
drought and a series of other natural disasters. This war will last
close to 30 years, after which there will be one thousand years of
peace, or a new golden age. Nostradamus quatrains did not go beyond
3786 or 3797. According to a letter written to one of his sons,
the seer claimed this is the year the world will end.
Michel de Nostradamus, gifted French physician and prophet, made and
recorded over one thousand predictions during his lifetime. Of those,
some say over half have come true. As the new millennium begins his
published collections of quatrains have become more popular than ever
as people look for answers and direction.
What does the future
hold? Was Nostradamus a whack-job or a true prophet? That is for you to
