5 chilling predictions from Nostradamus are unfolding slowly, #1 has the exact date!
Nostradamus has been considered one of the most accurate prophets in history by many. He has left us some shocking prophecies for the year 2018.
His book, The Prophecies, contains over 1,000 “quatrains”—four lines of verse often written in a cryptic style—to predict future events. His writings were completed in the 16th century, and many have already been proven correct! A couple of his previous predictions include the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the rise of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s, and the present-day persecution of the spiritual group called Falun Dafa, in China.
Many people say his words are nothing but guesses, some lucky and some not. Whether this is true or not is open to conjecture. The events predicted for 2018 are said to turn life on our planet upside down, and life may “cease to exist.” Here are some of his predictions that came true.
#1. The persecution of Falun Dafa in China
This is one of Nostradamus’s most famous prophecies, which strikes right within our immediate days, and is the only quatrain with a specific date.
The year one thousand nine ninety-nine, seventh month
From the sky shall come a great King of terror,
[Shall be] revived the great King of Angoulmois.
Before and after, Mars [shall] reign as chance will have it.
(Century X, No. 72)
On July 20, 1999 (one thousand nine ninety-nine, seventh month—as written in the prophecy), Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), began the persecution of millions of Falun Dafa practitioners in China, undermining their fundamental right to faith.
Some understandings of Nostradamus’s prophecy above hold the “great King of terror” to be the antichrist, in the form of the CCP. The atheist CCP adheres to Marxist ideology, which is understood to be noted in the prophecy as, “Before and after, Mars [shall] reign.” The CCP saw the beliefs of Falun Gong, including the existence of the divine, heaven, and gods, as incompatible with its Marxist ideals.
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is a self-improvement meditation practice based on the moral values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance. The practice was introduced to the public in China by Mr. Li Hongzhi in the 1990s. Due to Falun Dafa’s extraordinary health benefits, it very soon became popular nationwide, and had an estimated 70 million to 100 million followers in China alone.
The predicted event of July 1999 was the most brutal, genocidal disaster of that month in the whole world. Moreover, the persecution of 100 million innocent people, which is still occurring to this day, is something that history will look back on with horror. Furthermore, this persecution has brought about a new form of evil, whereby thousands of Falun Dafa practitioners have been murdered for their healthy organs, which are then sold as part of the CCP’s lucrative organ trade.
#2. Solar radiation to cause severe burning
Nostradamus wrote: “The kings will steal the forests, the sky will open and the fields will be burnt by the heat.”
In light of the devastating 2018 California wildfires, whether Nostradamus referred to solar radiation or is alluding to something else, this one, like his many other prophecies, can bring about different understandings.
One theory put forth by Deborah Tavares in 2015 is a so-called “plan to burn up Northern California,” which gained much attention during the 2018 California wildfires.
Tavares claims directed energy weapons were used from outer space, a theory pushed by other astute observers who note a number of undeniably freakish anomalies with these California fires. We won’t delve into details, but if you’re curious, check out the video below.
Whatever the case, it has been a fiery 2018, as it has been a wet 2018.
In terms of the solar radiation theory, according to reports from NASA, the Sun has indeed been flaring up. On Sept. 6, 2017, the SWPC detected two massive solar flares. The energy released in these flares is comparable to that of a billion hydrogen bombs.
Some scholars say this is a warning about destruction of our forests and an increase in the gap of the ozone hole, leading to more radiation on Earth.
#3. Massive earthquakes in the United States and rest of the world
Nostradamus said the winter of 2018 would see the “belt of fire of the Pacific” especially active, causing earthquakes and also three volcanoes to erupt.
In May 2018, significant volcano activity in Hawaii made headlines around the world.
Destroying hundreds of homes, and racking up an estimated $800 million damage bill, the Kīlauea volcano, which continues to spew lava to this day, was the most destructive U.S. volcano since the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
Nostradamus predicted some massive seismic activity that would shake the western part of North America, with shock waves felt across the globe.
The “Ring of Fire” is a 25,000-mile basin area in the Pacific Ocean; it is here that 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur. This region also has 452 volcanoes—and as per news reports, the area shook in late September 2017!
On Sept. 19, Mexico endured a massive 7.1 earthquake. Less than a day later, a 6.1 earthquake struck 175 miles east of Fukushima, Japan. On Sept. 20, New Zealand was also rocked by a 6.1 magnitude, 585 kilometers south of Invercargill, followed by a 5.1 in Wellington.
Vanuatu, a small Pacific island nation to the east of Australia, experienced a severe 6.4 earthquake on Sept 21. A 5.7 earthquake hit 125 kilometers northeast of Surabaya, Java, sparking fears of an eruption from the volcano, Mount Agung. Surrounding areas had been put on high alert since Sept. 18. This volcano last erupted in 1963, killing more than 1,000 people.
Further predictions from the French seer include record-breaking floods over the planet, with typhoons and extreme weather in China, Japan, Russia, and even Australia.
Recent hurricanes and floods have already created much havoc and destruction in some parts of the world, such as Hurricane Florence in September 2018, which became the wettest tropical cyclone ever recorded in the Carolinas, racking up a $17.9 billion damage bill.
Deadly floods continue to occur worldwide.
The 2018 Kerala floods in south India, which claimed 483 human lives, is but another example. Although monsoon season is expected to bring on extra rain, this was the worst case in 100 years according to local officials.
#5. Eruption of Vesuvius
He predicted that Italy would be shaken by an eruption from this volcano. According to geologists, possibly a big eruption is expected towards the end of 2018, or at the beginning of 2019.
This volcano has not erupted since 1944, and usually only erupts every 20 years. So, it has been building up pressure for 70 or more years. Around 3 million people live in nearby Naples.
Nostradamus’s predictions should be looked at in the light of all that is happening on the planet. Bear in mind these words were all written five centuries ago, and many of the predictions have come to pass. No matter what, we all need to wake up and help our fellow man, for we are indeed in times of great turmoil. Perhaps changing our hearts and minds will lead to greener pastures.
As the poems often have cryptic content, there has always been controversy surrounding their interpretation. Perhaps you can come up with your own understandings?
