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
(Guentte). When will all this take place? In one quatrain Nostradamus
gives us an exact date in which the war will be well under way.
In the year 1999 and seven months
From the sky will come the great King of
He will bring back to life the King of
Before and after war reigns.
Nostradamus predicts the war will begin shortly before the year
1999 (Roberts 191). He also tells us how long the war will
The war will last seven and twenty years. (Guentte)
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.
By fire he will destroy their city,
A cold and cruel heart,
Blood will pour,
Mercy to none. (Guentte)
Although Nostradamus 's predictions for our future
sound frightening 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
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
To the man of blood the number is reported.
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. (Reader's Digest 515).
