Prophesy Revealed: Obama in Nostradamus Quatrains
|''Born of obscure and dark family,
Of white and black of the two intermixed.
The dark one biding his time,
Before the Empire changes''
Even as a kid, I was fascinated by prophetic predictions about the things to unfold in the years to come. I have found myself pondering over numerous books ranging from the Holy Quran to the Holy Bible. I became accustomed to the words of the prophets of biblical times as well as the works of saints who came much later. One of such prophets was Michel de Nostredame (1503-1566) or to give him his popular name Nostradamus. I have been fascinated about his numerous predictions of the United States, some of which confirmed Nostradamus as a true prophet.
“Alas, how we will see a great nation sorely troubled
and the holy law in utter ruin.
Christianity (governed) throughout by other laws,
when a new source of gold and silver is discovered.”
As a Christian, I often frown at laws, which run contrary to those laid down by Islam and Christianity. Both of which I consider in accord, contrary to popular belief. The ordaining of gay priests or increase in pro-abortion laws might be what Nostradamus referred as the ‘other laws’. “When a new source of gold and silver is discovered” (oil) makes me identify the ‘great nation’ as the United States.
Being black, I have been wondered if my race had been omitted in his prophesies. Are we unimportant in things to come or have we been purposely omitted by modern day researchers? Nostradamus predicted the black race will contribute in the events to unfold. As a private researcher, I got to understand the individual patterns in which the prophets deliver their message. Each has their peculiar style. Understanding the diversity of thoughts of the prophets makes it a lot easier to understand the future. Hence, in 2005 when Pope John Paul passed on, I was quick to tell Africans that their famous Cardinal Arinze would never sit on the holy seat as Nostradamus wrote: “The Holy Empire will come into Germany’’.
I also remember screaming when Obama set foot on Kenyan soil………….THIS IS THE MAN NOSTRADEMUS SPOKE ABOUT.
"Born of obscure and dark family,
Of white and black of the two intermixed.
The dark one biding his time,
Before the Empire changes.”
This seems to clearly describe Obama, even though it by no means signified Obama’s rise to power. Not only he is intermixed and from a little known family, he is making it clear that he is not in control as President until sworn in. The fact that he is cooperating to have a smooth change of government also beyond doubt pinpoints him as the one Nostradamus was referring to. Other quatrains of Nostradamus point to Obama, one of which is:
“The man will be called by a barbaric name
that three sisters will receive from destiny.
He will speak then to a great people in words and deeds,
more than any other man will have fame and renown.”
African names like Barack Obama could have been considered barbaric in the time of Nostradamus. But in this case, Nostradamus is most probably referring to Obama’s middle name ‘Hussein’. The name Hussein at Nostradamus’s time also would probably have been considered barbaric. I have also come across numerous people who consider the name barbaric, as it is of Islamic origin. Some form of ignorance on their part I would say as over the years, although a Christian, I have considered Muslims to worship God to the finest detail. The second verse of the quatrain that refers to the three sisters confirms the name that Nostradamus is talking about is Hussien, since the name came from Husayn ibn Ali, the son of Fatima. Interesting enough, Fatima had three sisters.
To have foreseen our century way back is quite remarkable. But one need not know Nostradamus to predict the future of Obama. Who would have dreamt of a black man ever becoming the greatest president in the world? Nostradamus also made some references to world’s current situation. One good verse that refers to that is the following:
“Coins depreciated by the spirit of the realm,
And people will be stirred up against their King:
New peace made, holy laws become worse,
Paris was never in so severe an array.”
This verse portrays the current situation in the United States. In an America struggling with an ailing economy as well as a falling currency, it is only obvious for a vast majority of the population to want change. The ailing economic hardship has made the people hold their current leaders accountable for their woes. His use of Paris can also be explained. Paris has been used in English as a surname for immigrants from the capital of France. The above text may thus refer to the United States and its huge population of French descents. The verse ‘ holy laws become worse’ might also refer to the current controversial tension the US is facing regarding same sex marriage and abortion laws)
Obama’s choice of unconditional talks and his stance on looking at left countries not as enemies but as potential partners, has given the world a new message of peace. His ability to talk and convince people as well as to brush off verbal attacks by rivals will witness him attaining heights never achieved by any president of his time. Nostrademus foresaw this:
“That which neither weapon nor flame could accomplish
will be achieved by a sweet speaking tongue in council.
Sleeping, in a dream, the king will see
the enemy not in war or of military blood.”
Though hazy, Nostradamus scholars are in conflicting opinion over a quatrain of Nostradamus which could suggest the prophet foresaw the final use of harsh force by Obama in another quatrain:
“The device of flying fire
Will come to trouble the great besieged chief:
Within there will be such sedition
That the profligate ones will be in despair.”
For sure it predicts a missile attack on a wicked ruler. Many of which have been destroyed this way in the past, and many yet to be destroyed the same way in the future. Nostradamus was not explicit enough in this quatrain. Could have been, Hitler, Saddam Hussein, could be anybody. Also, the scattered nature of Nostradamus quatrains should be taking into consideration.
Another quatrain that brings doubt to identifying the black leader as Obama is:
The great empire will be torn from limb,
The all-powerful one for more than four hundred years:
Great power given to the dark one from slaves come,
The Aryana will not be satisfied thereby
It should be wise to note, Nostradamus saw the birth of America, saw Abraham Lincoln and saw the slave era. He saw the freedom of slaves and their exploits. Seeing a black leader in same country may have lead to his conclusion of linking Obama with slave lineage. Point to note: Aryana is an alternate name for Aria/Ariane, a territory of the Achaemenid Empire, which included modern Iran, western parts of Afghanistan, and western Pakistan. A region the United States is deeply involved in.
Another of such examples is the quatrain:
“The world is nearing its final period. Saturn will again be late on his return. The empire will shift toward a black nation.”
The above can be easily misinterpreted. Black nation shall once again become a global power? Sighting the poverty and poor leadership in Africa the black continent might make any serious minded person feel Nostradamus has jokes. Nigeria, Ethiopia, South Africa and Egypt, all African giants are currently in a state of confusion. Only a miracle would see any of these countries becoming a global superpower. If Nostradamus meant this, sincerely the guy had got jokes. Nostradamus may very well have seen a black person addressing a great nation and concluded it was a black nation. I believe, his use of the phrase ‘great empire’ shows he is referring to the United Stated, which will have will have a powerful black ruler.
How accurate was Nostradamus? Well some of his predictions were not in line with general believes. For example in the following verse he predicted that the first attempt to land on the moon by USA would not be a success.
“He will come to go into the corner of Luna,
Where he will be captured and put in a strange land:
The unripe fruits will be the subject of great scandal”
Since many of us believe that the United States landed on the moon, Nostradamus prediction was taken as wrong. But if we read between the lines, the prophet was telling us the first landing on the moon was A HOAX. Did not happen! It was too early for technology to pull that through. Hmmm! Nostradamus, on the other hand appears to have the backing of some scientist who demand further explanations for the reason the flag was flapping on the moon, when there exist no air on the moon. Wind is air in motion hence a flag on the moon will not flap.
However, being fare to the opposite field of thought, many of Nostradamus predictions were false. Many could also be fit into numerous events. The prophet also said many might not come true for if man knows the future he can alter it to his advantage. Hmmmm! This leaves too many loop holes, thus making it difficult for us to award him an honorary quack status. It is for this reason that Nostradamus has lost credibility in recent times. Sir Isaac Newton said on prophecy "God gave the prophecies, not to gratify men's curiosity by enabling them to foreknow things, but that after they were fulfilled they might be interpreted by the event, and His own providence, not the interpreter's, be thereby manifested to the world."
This explains why prophesies are understood after they have happened. For Nostradamus predictions, no doubt we can understand our past but the future? We can interpret which ever way we like. I have in fact come across a quatrain that I believe the prophet was referring to me…..
“Through clear signs and fixed stars,
That the time of its sudden change is approaching,
The captain will lead a great herd
Upon the earth he shall hold the monarchy”
This might well mean very soon I will be sworn in as the greatest president of all time and I will lead the people of the earth. To the place dreamt by our ancestors. Long live Africa, Long live the human race!
