I admit this is funny in a “No way, it can’t really be happening” kind of way. I woke up to this headline:
Now, any of you Nostradamus scholars out there understand the import of the headline. Nostradamus predicted three AntiChrists, their names encoded within anagrams or other obfuscations.
The following info is from Nostradamus scholar John Hogue’s fascinating web site. (John Hogue is one of the world’s foremast Nostradamus experts and has appeared in this capacity on History Channel documentaries.)
AntiChrist No. 1: “PAU, NAY, LORON”
Nostradamus code-named him “PAU, NAY, LORON.” All in uppercase. An obvious decoding would give us three towns in southwestern France: Pau, Nay and (O)loron. The rest of the prophecy strays the subject away from three villages to describe a human being. The upper-case presentation is a literary nudge in our sides to envisage a person’s name hidden in the letters spelling three towns.
PAU NAY LORON = NAPAULON ROY
“Roy” is French for “King”. His name encoded is “Napoleon King”
An Emperor will be born near Italy, He will cost his Empire very dearly: He is less a prince than a butcher. – Nostradamus (1555)
AntiChrist No. 2: “Hister”
Nostradamus code-named the second Antichrist “Hiƒter” — or “Hister” with a Gothic “s” — after the ancient name of the River Danube, which is the Ister. Nostradamus spells it with its most arcane variant Hister as some specific hint. Again, there’s a pattern to follow here. This “Danube” finds itself a thing representing a person mentioned as Hister in five prophecies containing similar story lines.
He becomes the “Captain of Greater Germany” born in Noricum (the ancient name for Austria). He will have a “crooked cross” as his symbol: the Swastika. The people of “Irale” (an anagram for Israel) would be sent as captives into a great furnace by this “Hister.”
It seems Nostradamus saw the boy who grew up on the banks of the Hister (Danube) River in Linz, Austria, dreaming of concentration camps for the Jews, Nostradamus’ kin, to be sent up in ash clouds.
HIƒTER = HITLER
AntiChrist No. 3: “Mabus”
Nostradamus gave the Third Antichrist the following code name. He’s Mabus. A number of notorious contemporary figures, still living or recently dead from the Middle East can see their names spelled in the Mabus code. But there also are other leaders from the West, deeply entangled in Middle Eastern turmoil, a current US president and a charismatic candidate who could be his successor whose names also easily decode out of Mabus, making the search for the right candidate the most provocative and topical challenge presented by Nostradamus for our present times.
Though his true name is occulted, the Third Antichrist’s destiny is made clear. Unlike the first two, he is the first to die in a war he initiates at the sign of a comet, or a rocket falling out of the skies:
World War III begins when Mabus dies a sudden death.
His act of terror unites a hundred nations in a war against what Nostradamus calls three Eastern kings secretly allied in opposition to the West. They would use piracy (hijacking?), ambush and subterfuge to wage war.
Know the war has begun when hollow mountains of a great New City (yet to be built in Nostradamus’ day) at latitude 45 in an unborn country he called Americh or Amorica, will be attacked by a fire in the sky. The hollow mountains crafted by man will be seized and plunged into the boiling cauldron of their own debris clouds.
After this happens, we will be living in the days of the last Antichrist. [more]
How ironic (and, admittedly, meaningless) that our Secretary of Defense may soon have a direct-report named Mabus who will be in the line of succession for the President of the United States.
A previous Secretary of the Navy, James Forrestal, was likely murdered when he threatened to go public over the Roswell Incident against the wishes of his compatriots in Majestic 12 in May 1949. FYI the alleged alien captives sequestered in Area 51 are under the jurisdiction of ONI, Office of Naval Intelligence.
