Are you ready to put 2022 behind you and bring in the new year with the hope of new beginnings and positive vibes? Then do not look too hard at the Nostradamus’s, AKA “The Prophet of Doom,” predictions for 2023. Spoiler alert, it does not contain sunshine and rainbows.
God forbid we receive an outlook or a prediction that consists of world peace and prosperity for every human soul on earth. That my friends would be too good to be true. Instead, Nostradamus brings us war, death, and the Antichrist.
So who is Nostradamus, and why does it matter?
Nostradamus was a 16th-century astrologer, plague doctor, accused heretic, and bearded seer that has been credited with foretelling the Great Fire of London, Hitler’s rise to power, the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nostradamus also predicted the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings by the United States to end World War II. “Within two cities,” Nostradamus wrote, “there will be scourges the like of which was never seen.”
That description would certainly apply to what occurred in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which were devastated by atomic bombs at the end of World War Two.
While most of his predictions fall short, some were accurate, but let us not forget that even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Referred to as the “prophet of doom,” many say that Nostradamus’s worldview and tendency to slip into despair is believed to have been shaped by a combination of the Old Testament and the trauma of losing his wife and young children to illness, presumably the plague.
According to Nostradamus, “Celestial fire on the Royal edifice” will fall in the year 2023. If interpreted literally, this could imply that a meteor is flying directly for Buckingham Palace and will eventually burn it down.
But some believe that Harry and Meghan Markle may be the catalyst that destroys the reputation of the royal family as we know it. They recently produced a Netflix series outlining the sinister acts carried out against them by the crown.
Nostradamus predicts that “Seven months great war, people dead through evil,” will engulf the entire earth in 2023.
The prophecy also predicts that in the coming year, the struggle would intensify into a full-fledged world war, which, considering the nuclear arsenals at risk, might result in apocalyptic levels of devastation.
According to Nos, “The antichrist very soon annihilates the three. Twenty-seven years his war will last. The unbelievers are dead, captive, and exiled. With blood, human bodies, water, and red hail covering the earth.”
Let’s pray that Nostradamus was nothing more than a man who was deeply affected by the loss of his family and that his predictions are nothing more than the ramblings of a broken man.
