Besides the Bible, one of the first books that got my attention after the turn of the millennium was “End Times” with snippets from Nastradamus, Edgar Cayce, and the Holy Mother.
Nostradamus was an interesting character. This page describes his life and prophecies.
We sure could use him for our own pandemic:
Who knows, maybe there is a Nostradamus in our midst but their voice is being silenced because “they”, whomever “they” represent, want everyone to get the jab instead.
Another interesting read from that book was the Malachy prophecies of all the Popes in this present church age. Based upon that series, the last Pope for this church age is the “Gloria olivæ”, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
Some time will transpire with the church going through it’s final trial similar to what Jesus went through as described in the Catechism paragraph 675.
“Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.”http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/para/675.htm
During the trial to come to the church, Malachi predicts the final Pope to be “Peter the Roman”. And so the name Peter is like two bookends for the church.
Jesus said (and recorded in Luke), “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
According to the last book of the Bible though, we may be due for a great era of peace where the devil will be chained and thrown into the abyss.
“And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. “Rev 20:1-3
What a great time it will be for our grandchildren to be able to live in this era of peace without the demonic influence of our present age.
Nostradamus even predicted this when he said:
“After this time, which men will find long, the peace of the earth will be renewed through the coming of the Golden Age. God the creator, hearing the affliction of his people, shall order Satan to be bound and cast into the abyss of Hell, into the deepest pit.”
“Thus shall commence a universal peace with God and men, and Satan shall remain bound for about a thousand years, which will bring greater strength to the power of the Church; and then he will once again be released.”
