Hello Friends,

A renowned journalist, Qaiser Pitafi quoted in today's Nawai Waqt multan that Nastrudamus predicted about a King of Terror to appear in 1999 from skies. He compares Musharraf with prediction of Nastrudamus. I don't know how much he is correct but his article [in urdu] is interesting. You may find it on his website, . Does anybody has more info on same subject?

حقیقت یا سازش  مصنف قیصر خان پتافی بتاریخ 29 اکتوبر 2008 "“ 12:29 Ù¾ÛŒ ایم Û”

جب بھی کوئی مجرمانہ فعل ہوتا ہے تو پولیس کے متعلقہ حکام اس جرم کا شکار ہونے والے افراد سے مطالبہ کرتے ہیں کہ ہمیں چند ایسے لوگوں کے نام بتاٶ جن پر تمہیں شک ہو۔ پھر جب انہیں کسی مشکوک آدمی کا نام دیا جائے تو یہ بھی ضروری نہیں ہوتا کہ وہی شخص مجرم بھی ثابت ہو جائے لیکن اس نامزدگی کی وجہ سے ایک توجرم کی تفتیش و تحقیق کی ابتداء ہو جاتی ہے اور دوسرا یہ کہ بعض اوقات وہی نامزد ملزم ہی آخر میں مجرم ثابت ہوتا ہے۔ یہ تمام صورتحال تقریباً ایسے ہی ہے کہ کوئی شخص صحرا میں پانی کی تلاش میں کھڑا ہو مگر فہم و گمان میں یہ فیصلہ نہ کر پا رہا ہو کہ ابتداء کہاں سے کس طرف سے کرے۔ اسی شش و پنج میں اچانک اسے ایک طرف سراب دکھائی دے اور وہ اس سراب کے پیچھے چل پڑے۔ اس تلاش کی ابتداء کرنے سے یہ بھی ممکن ہے کہ اس سراب کا پیچھا کرتے کرتے واقعی اسے کہیں پانی مل جائے۔ اور یہ بھی ہو سکتا ہے کہ کچھ حاصل نہ ہو۔

The King of Terror- Part 1 -
In one of Nostradamus' most famous predictions, he specifies July 1999 as the date for the arrival from the sky of a person or thing that will profoundly change life on Earth.


The year 1999, seventh month,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror.
To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.

July 1999 is the month and year that 16th century prophet Nostradamus predicted for the arrival of a "King of Terror" from the sky. From Century 10, Quatrain 72 of his writings, this is one of the few times that Nostradamus provided a specific date for an event to occur. But like all of his predictions, it is open to interpretation, speculation, and controversy. Open for debate too, of course, is whether or not his writings have any merit at all. "The year 1999" is pretty plain, but is the seventh month really July? Who or what is the "King of Terror"? Who is the King of the Mongols? What is meant by the last line? There is no shortage of opinions and interpretations.

July, August, or September?
Most students of Nostradamus take this phrase as literally meaning the seventh month of the year "“ July. Some have even attempted to pinpoint the day of the month. July 4, 1999 was the earliest date suggested. This date was chosen because of another verse which mentions "the day the eagle celebrates her feast." It's easy to see how this could be interpreted at the Fourth of July, America's birthday, since the eagle is our national symbol, but it's not clear how these verses from two different quatrains were put together to yield this date. Nostradamus: Prophecies of Our Century goes so far as to say that World War III was to have started on July 4, with Russia and Iran launching missiles at western and southern Europe. Needless to say, it didn't happen.

The Cassini spacecraft will fly by the Earth on August 18. Should Cassini errantly enter our atmosphere and break up, the dispersal of the plutonium could be devastating to life on the planet.

July 7 was the next date to watch out for. Psychic Eileen Lakes named Wednesday the 7th as the day the great pole shift would take place. (See my article, Pole Shift!) Lakes doesn't necessarily correlate this date with the Nostradamus prediction, but she did foresee cataclysmic consequences to the pole shift, and it's likely that many who have read the two predictions would equate them. Rather, Lakes believes that the pole shift would have been caused by a particular planetary alignment on that day at 7 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time. She and other astrologers call this arrangement of the planets the "Grand Cross," and say that the gravitational influence of this alignment should have caused the Earth to flip on its side by 90 degrees, causing disastrous flooding in which much of mankind would perish. This would be followed, she says, by the second coming of Jesus Christ. Obviously, none of that happened either.

The next favored date is July 28. According to The Prophecy, Nostradamus must be referring to the 28th because that's when a total eclipse of the moon is to take place "“ that in conjunction with the "Grand Cross." There will be a full moon on the 28th, and there will actually be only a partial lunar eclipse that night. The Old Farmer's Almanac says that the full moon on this date is called the Full Thunder Moon by some Native American tribes.

Some interpreters of the verse think that Nostradamus might not have meant July by "seventh month." Nostradamus wrote in his native French, the first verse being: L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois. "Sept" means seven in French, but maybe Nostradamus was being cryptic and was alluding to the month of September... just to throw us off, perhaps.

Nostradamus and the 1999 King of Terror [link has since been removed] prefers August, however, but they have to do some wordplay to arrive at it. They say that "nonante neuf" could be cryptic for "non ante neuf," or "no "“ before nine" "“ namely the eighth month, August. Also, our present-day calendar did not come into effect until 1582 (Nostradamus died in 1566), throwing dates off by about a month, so his seventh month would be our eighth (although why the great prophet did not foresee this they do not say.) They like August for this prediction because a couple of interesting events take place that month "“ events that could be seen as "terror from the sky." First, a total solar eclipse "“ the last of this millennium "“ will occur on August 11, visible in some parts of the world (including Israel). Second, the Cassini spacecraft "“ a probe on its way to Saturn "“ will fly by the Earth on August 18. Cassini has been controversial since before its launch in October 1997 because it is powered by over 72 pounds of highly toxic plutonium dioxide. Should Cassini errantly enter our atmosphere and break up, the dispersal of the plutonium could be devastating to life on the planet. NASA says that the chances of that happening "are minuscule." One more interesting note: August 18 is the 666th day since Cassini's launch.

So if it's August or September, that gives us another couple of months to get our affairs in order.

Who or What is the King of Terror?
So who is this King of Terror, if he is a person at all? Theories range from Jesus Christ to comets. As we've seen, some believe it is the Cassini spacecraft. If by some fluke it did disintegrate in Earth's atmosphere, the radioactive plutonium certainly could bring terror from the sky. Plutonium is so toxic that one millionth of a gram of the stuff can cause cancer; 72 pounds of it could be civilization's worst nightmare.

Peter Lemesurier, author of "Nostradamus: The Next 50 Years," interprets the line as saying "great financing lord" rather than "King of Terror." Most other translations aren't so mild. Prophecy expert John Hogue, author of Nostradamus "“ The Complete Prophecies among many other titles, offers two possible interpretations of the verse. His first theory is that the "King of Terror" is a PLO-trained Arab terrorist who will launch a war with Israel using nuclear or chemical weapons. His second theory depicts the People's Republic of China as the King of Terror seeking to restore the kingdom of Genghis Khan.

Hogue's first theory is that the"king of terror" is a PLO-trained Arab terrorist who will launch a war with Israel with nuclear or chemical weapons.

Those who prefer to view their prophecies "“ Nostradamus and otherwise "“ in light of the Bible look to Jesus' words in The Gospel According to St. Luke. When asked about the signs of his second coming and the end of the world, he replied, "... Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven." (Luke 21:10-11) The signs from heaven could be seen as "from the sky will come a great King of Terror."

In his book Nostradamus, 1999: Who Will Survive?, Stefan Paulus suggests that the terror could be a comet or large meteor that collides with Earth. Paulus believes that Nostradamus might have even foreseen the size of the celestial body in Century 1, Quatrain 69 as "seven stadia," and that it will be seen during an eclipse of the sun: "When the eclipse of the sun will then be / In broad daylight the monster will be seen." (Century 3, Quatrain 34). The eclipse of August 11? It just seems puzzling how verses from three different Centuries can be linked to be referring to the same event. The website King of Terror (which is no longer working!) elaborated to say that it is a meteor hidden inside the tail of the comet that will strike the Earth. Although it didn't say how it came by any of these details, it also said the meteor will be a quarter of a mile long, will strike possibly on a Thursday and possibly near Italy, and will kill 2 billion people.

Author William Henry (The Peacemaker and the Key of Life) has an interpretation that is more unconventional (if that's possible): that the "great King of Terror" is actually Jesus Christ! The route to that conclusion is a bit convoluted, but at his website, "The Return of the King of Terror," Henry explains that Nostradamus, fearing possible religious persecution, concealed many of his most important prophecies in code. "In Nostradamus' time," Henry writes, "the most terrifying "“ and powerful "“ image one could conjure was the Holy Grail. In the Grail legend [familiar to Nostradamus], the Grail story was dictated by Jesus to a young Frenchman. When this young man held the Grail in his hand, and looked into its bright light, he became instantly terrified, then enlightened. From this moment... Jesus and the Holy Grail were linked with terror, and terror with enlightenment." Henry also says that a famous English runic object dating from 700 A.D., called Frank's Casket, refers to Jesus as "the king of terror," although this is not meant in a negative sense.

Last but not least, the "king of terror" is also seen as the Antichrist. Erika Cheetham, in her book The Final Prophecies of Nostradamus, writes: "In this gloomy prediction of the coming of the Third Antichrist in July 1999, Nostradamus seems to foresee the coming of the millennium. This quatrain indicates that it will be preceded by the coming of the Third Antichrist from the East..."

In Part 2 we'll look at the second two verses, the various interpretations of "the King of the Mongols" and what is meant by the last line. Until then... keep your eyes on the sky.  

The King of Terror- Part 2
Did Nostradamus predict the beginning of World War III in 1999, the arrival of the Antichrist, or the Second Coming of Christ? Or is it all a matter of interpretation?


Did Nostradamus predict the beginning of World War III in 1999, the arrival of the Antichrist, or the Second Coming of Christ? Or is it all a matter of interpretation?

The year 1999, seventh month,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror.
To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.

Well, we made it through July, 1999. In part 1 we reviewed how some interpreters of Nostradamus' above prophecy (Century 10, Quatrain 72) believed that July 4 would see the beginning of World War III or that on July 7 the Earth would experience a catastrophic pole shift. I'm pleased to report that neither event took place. The closest thing we had to terror from the sky was a car-sized meteor that exploded over New Zealand on the 7th.

But at this writing we're not out of the woods yet, if these prophecies are to be taken seriously. We still have the rest of July to sweat out the arrival of the "King of Terror," possibly on the 28th, and perhaps even through August and September. The various possible dates and timelines were examined last week, as well as guesses as to the identity of the "King of Terror." This week let's see how some students of Nostradamus and modern-day psychics are interpreting the identity of the "King of the Mongols," and what might be meant by the enigmatic last line.

Who is the "King of the Mongols"?

John Hogue, author of Nostradamus - The Complete Prophecies and several other books on prophecy, theorized that the "King of Terror" could be the People's Republic of China and that the "King of the Mongols" it will bring back to life is Genghis Khan. He doesn't literally mean that the person of Genghis Khan would be resurrected from the dead, but he notes that in 1990, in a major propaganda campaign, the leaders of the People's Republic of China restored Khan to his "rightful" place in Chinese history. So what's the significance? "Genghis Kahn united the Mongolians of the Central Asian steppes," Hogue writes, "into an all-conquering army that forged the largest land empire in history. The vast Islamic western wing of his empire included modern-day Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and the Central Asian republics of the former Soviet Union. Tens of millions died in the bloody conquests initiated by [Genghis Khan] and his successors. According to the prophet, Genghis Khan and his empire are now returning: the warlord has been brought back to life."

At the Great King of Terror website (which is no longer working!), they believed the "King of the Mongols" will be a world leader with the military power of Genghis Khan - namely, the Antichrist.

Does Nostradamus Have A Track Record?

Many interpreters of Nostradamus have credited him with predicting the French Revolution, the emergence of the British Empire, the rise of Hitler (referred to as "Hister"), the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and even the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Typically, however, these "hits" by the 16th century prophet were credited to him only after the fact. It wasn't until after JFK was killed, for example, that an appropriate quatrain was found to "predict" it. It's Nostradamus' interpreters, then, who have the track record.

"He called his prophecies perpetual prophecies," said foremost British Nostradamus expert Peter Lemesurier in The Guardian. "Things that were originally said to apply to Napoleon have been reapplied to Hitler and then to Gorbechev, whoever was the bogeyman of the moment. Unfortunately, what people generally do is see what happened, and then find a prophecy to match."

Joan Mary Sckrabulis, author of The Lost Covenant, weaves the Nostradamus quatrain with Biblical prophecies and astrology to conclude that the total eclipse of the sun on August 11 is actually what the great prophet was referring to. "The King of Terror" is the partial lunar eclipse on July 28 and then, two weeks later, the moon swings around and creates the total solar eclipse on August 11. This, she says, is the great King Angolmois. (Angolmois is the actual French word used by Nostradamus, which has been most commonly translated as "King of the Mongols.") "Angolmois is an anagram for Sang Lion in French," Sckrabulis writes, "meaning Blood of the Lion. It is also an anagram for Solomon, that is, the Lion of Judah, Solomon, Sol Ammon Ra. The event marks the Second Coming that day, but not in the commonly expected way." At the time of this eclipse, she says, the Earth will also be in the center of what some astrologers are calling "the Grand Cross," surrounded in the heavens by the sun, Saturn, Uranus, and Mars. She calls this the "crucifixion of the Earth."

While Erika Cheetham (The Final Prophecies of Nostradamus) believes the "King of the Mongols" will be an Asian forerunner of the Antichrist, Peter Lemesurier (Nostradamus: The Next 50 Years) interprets the line as meaning that there could be an oriental invasion of some kind in the Middle East that will be stopped because its leader dies. The invasion will be brought back to life, however, due to the financing of a rich world leader.

William Henry has a completely different take on the identity of the Mongol king. In his book The Peacemaker and the Key of Life, Henry says that according the Buddhist tradition, Mongolia is the location of Shambhala, the utopian home of the gods who came from the star Sirius. "The myths of the Maya, Toltecs, and Aztecs," Henry writes, "tell of bearded, bland white men who came from a kingdom in Mongolia.... These Mongolians said they had come from Atlantis.... From this, we may deduce Nostradamus' King of Angolmois may have a connection with the god beings of ancient Egypt, Atlantis, and beyond." Henry further surmises that the appearance of the "King of Terror" and "King of the Mongols" will coincide with the opening of the Hall of Records, which Edgar Cayce predicted would be discovered beneath the Sphinx in Egypt - an event that would reveal knowledge bringing about a transformation of the existing world order.

Nostradamus and the 1999 King of Terror suggests that the "King of Angolmois" could be Jesus Christ. Angolmois, it is posited, could be cryptic for Golgotha - where Jesus was crucified, making him King of Golgotha. The "King of Terror" is the Antichrist whose arrival prompts the return of Jesus to Earth. Using more wordplay, the site also offers that Angolmois is "very similar to au chef Anglois - to the English chief," but does not quite explained what the significance might be.

"Before and after Mars to reign by good luck."

To explain this line, the astrology-influenced The Prophecy again turns to "the Grand Cross" and the eclipse to take place on August 11. "A chart of the heavens for August 11 will find the planet Mars positioned in the first house of the zodiac near the ascendant. As the ruling planet of Aries, Mars will indeed 'reign' in its place of natural rulership. Mars, generally, rules the blood and may likely refer to a particular bloodline associated with the Blood of the Lion."

At The Great King of Terror website, which believed the "King of Terror" will be a killer meteor, Mars is simply interpreted as the god of war, meaning "before and after the meteor hits there will be a war or wars."

"The final line makes a cryptic reference to Mars," writes John Hogue. "A consideration of the occult meaning of this planet which, in conventional wisdom, represents the god of war and mayhem, opens up the possibility of a positive outcome in the future. The phrase 'before and after Mars rules happily' can be interpreted to mean that the higher aspect of Mars, as the god of magic and spiritual transformation, 'rules happily' in the new millennium."


As you can see, the prophecies of Nostradamus - even when he's more specific than usual - can be interpreted in any number of ways, depending on the interpreter's background, beliefs, and agenda. Considering his highly dubious track record, and those of other doomsday millennial prophets, there's very little to worry about.

His King of Terror will be definitely a human being, so what is the meaning of coming from skies? Nostradamus made this prediction when aeroplane had not been invented. POssibility is that he will go from place xyz to place abc via aeroplane, just like Hamini came to Iran by air. It does not necessarily man that he will start his
mission on this day, actual eent might come at later dates.
