Although many people know that Nostradamus prophesied the coming of the three Antichrists allegedly foretold in St John's Epistles (and also, in the guise of the Beast, the Dragon, the False Prophet, and the Whore of Babylon, in Revelation), they don't know who the first two Antichrists were, nor who the third will be when his time comes. This book will answer those questions. Nostradamus differs from the Biblical Book of Revelation in his emphasis that there are three Antichrists, and not simply one. Reading believes that Nostradamus intended his concept of the three Antichrists to act as an evil mirror image of the Holy Trinity, and designed this as a possible three-stage build up to Armageddon. He concludes that Nostradamus intuited that all three Antichrists would be supra-national, in the sense that their actions would affect the whole world - and not simply their own countries. Mario Reading writes: 'The first of Nostradamus's three Antichrists is clearly Napoleon Bonaparte, given both the extent and the quality of the prophecies he dedicates to the man. The second Antichrist is Adolf Hitler - again, Nostradamus devoted an inordinate amount of space to Hitler's effect on the world stage. The third of his Antichrists is the 'one still to come', to which he devotes a number of prophecies still waiting to be fulfilled. They include dates and consequences: the period starts in 2010, with advance warning of the Third Antichrist, covers his birth in 2035, the Global War triggered by the Antichrist in 2070, and the decay and destruction of the Antichrist's empire by 2097.'
For thousands of years humans have been seduced by the messianic and the mystical, entranced by those individuals said to have the gift of foresight - and the name that stands out above all others is that of the 16th-century French apothecary, Nostradamus (1503-1566). A prolific writer of occult almanacs, his most famous work remains his Centuries - 942 gnomic verses, known as quatrains, that have intrigued people for nearly half a millennium. From the Great Plague of London in 1665-1666 to the Fall of the Third Reich in 1945, the Gulf War in 1990 to the World Financial Crisis of 2007, this compelling collection is an amazing list of some of history's greatest moments - each foretold by the greatest oracle of all time - as well as events that have not yet happened. Nostradamus: The Top 100 Prophecies is a carefully selected and beautifully illustrated selection of Nostradamus's greatest quatrains. Arranged in thematic order - with chapters which include Tyrants, Statesmen and Heroes; Assassinations and Purges; and Disaster and Destruction, each quatrain is presented in French translated insightfully into modern English and accompanied by an incisive commentary. The evocative illustrations include superb commissioned artwork in a highly original and appealing style.
Nostradamus predicted the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the Credit Crunch in 2008 and the floods in New Orleans as well as the Iraq War, the Twin Towers disaster and the devastating Tsunamis - and he foretold the future for decades to come. Mario Reading presents Nostradamus in an entirely new light. He has prepared new groundbreaking translations of all Nostradamus's quatrains that deal specifically with the future, with new, sharp and knowledgeable commentaries. Mario Reading's startling discovery of Nostradamus' dating system allow him to date the prophecies, and his translation and insightful interpretation reveal extraordinary and sometimes shocking predictions for the future. These predictions include the demise of the British Monarchy, the break-up of the European Union and Global War. Nostradamus, the greatest diviner and scryer who ever lived, was born on the 13th December 1503, in Provence, France. His prophecies have been in continuous print since his death on the 1st July 1566, an event that he accurately foretold on the night before it happened.
This book resolves the last great mystery of Nostradamus. While the Prophecies have transfixed us for centuries a crucial question has lingered. Why did the seer not declare the dates on which his predictions would come about? The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus has the answer. There has been no such concealment. Nostradamus gave to each of his prophetic verses, ten volumes of 100 each, an index number. And as Mario Reading reveals in this ground-breaking new analysis, these numbers are the true key to the years of the prophecies' fulfilment.
Nostradamus: The Good News breaks stunning new ground in isolating those prophecies in which Nostradamus suggested the possibility of positive change - that could - and indeed did - alter the world for the better. It was Nostradamus' fundamental belief that if the world could only see into the future, it would wish to alter it benevolently. His prophecies were an attempt to communicate across the intervening ages with the world to come. Now, for the first time, a Nostradamus commentator has adhered rigorously to Nostradamus' own index dates and by so doing, he has revolutionized traditional Nostradamus scholarship. His innovative new versions of the verses combine literal translation of the medieval French with his own technique of 'euphonic translation', which takes into account the codes, hidden meanings and jeux de mots concealed within the medieval texts.
