Nostradamus Theories

Once in a while it's fun to talk about ghost stories, UFOs, bigfoot or other oddities.  I recently came across one of those type stories that makes you raise your eyebrows a little.

I was scanning through some news articles about Obama trying to find what I can about his appointments to key positions and what he has had to say about his plans once taking office.  As I did so I came across an interesting name, Ray Mabus.

Ray Mabus was the Saudi Arabia advisor under Bill Clinton.  He later stepped up to help Obama as an unpaid advisor on the Middle East during his presidential campaign.

You're reading this saying ok, what's the big deal about Ray Mabus.  Here's the significance, one of the passages from Nostradamus' predictions which reads as follows...

Mabus then will soon die, there will come
Of people and beasts a horrible rout:
Then suddenly one will see vengeance,
Hundred, hand, thirst, hunger when the comet will ru

For those unfamiliar with the works of Nostradamus, he predicted there would be 3 antichrists here on earth.  The above passage is what many believe to be the key event that will disclose who the 3rd antichrist actually is.

The first was Napoleon and many of his predictions correspond to Napoleon's life and what was happening in the world at that time.  You can read some of the details HERE.

The second antichrist was Adolph Hitler, Nostradamus even naming him by name getting one letter off:

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.

Beasts wild with hunger will cross the rivers
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.

At this point there is great speculation regarding the identity of the 3rd antichrist with nothing more then clues within Nostradamus' writings at this point.  In addition to the above passage naming Mabus, he also gave additional clues to watch for in the following passage.

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.

Enter Europe wearing a blue turban?  Could THESE be the image Nostradamus saw or perhaps THESE?

He also gave the following information for events that would unfold as the 3rd antichrist came to power.

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 war reigns.

The sky will burn at forty-five degrees.
Fire approaches the great new city.

By fire he will destroy their city,
A cold and cruel heart,
Blood will pour,
Mercy to none.

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.

Many believe that much of that above was a prediction of the events of 9/11 with "1999 and seven months" being an play on numbers if you switch the 9 and the 1s.  This leaves you with 9111 or 9/11/01.  Or perhaps something even different...  In French that line reads "L'an mil neuf cent nonante neuf sept mois", sept is seven in French but is also the abbreviation for September.

Never the less, most who read it feel it is an accurate prediction of the events of 9/11.  And if that part is true then we are currently in the time of the 3rd antichrist; who some Nostradamus followers feel will come to light when Mabus dies and will wear the blue turbin.  Based on this little bit of information, it will be interesting to see if Ray Mabus plays any part in the new Obama administration and if he should die any time soon and just how much the UN with their blue headgear come into play.

On a personal note, I am a skeptic but I do enjoy sharing stories like these for the fun of it.
