Nostradamus was a prophet-seer who was born in France in 1503, who with stunning accuracy has predicted such events as the assassination of the Kennedy brothers, World Wars 1 and 2, and the French Revolution among many others, with precise dates and names of important figures. He also gave descriptions of airplanes and submarines, with details of pilots wearing oxygen masks described as a half-man, half pig. All over 400 years prior to the events!
After gaining mild repute as a seer, he retired to a house in Salon, in the south of France. It was here that he composed a book called Centuries that contained 1000 prophecies, one for each year of the 1000 years of peace prophesied in the Holy Scriptures. Each chapter was called a century and contained 100 four line prophetic poems called Quatrains. Before the book was released, Nostradamus cut up the quatrains and threw them into the air making his book not in chronological order, thereby making it more difficult to decipher for the people of the future. The book was released in two parts of seven and three centuries respectively. The preface to the latter was addressed as an "epistle to Henry II" which warned of three Antichrists who would be so powerful as to take peace from the whole earth. To understand who these Antichrists are we must first understand the meaning of the word Christ.
Christ is an English translation of the Greek word Christos, and in Hebrew this word is translated as Messiah. It means anointed one and refers to the genealogy of kingship. In the times before Jesus, all the Kings in the Davidic line were called Messiah or more completely Messiah-ben-David, as they were anointed on the forehead with olive oil by the High Priest. In those days they fueled their lamps with olive oil, so in reference to kings it was symbolical to their enlightenment. But during the Jews captivity in Babylon, the Prophets Isaiah, Daniel and Ezekiel, prophesied that two of these descendants from David would be anointed not by the High Priest but by God himself with the Holy Spirit. Jesus, being descended from David through King Solomon's brother Nathan, was the first of these two prophesied Christs. The meaning of the word Christ, therefore, is a male-sperm lineal descendant of King David who is anointed.
Nostradamus was a True Christian (knowing the meaning of the word Christ) and a firm believer in the one True Invisible God and the Bible. Knowing he would never see the Kingdom of God on earth promised by Jesus, he begged God to let him see a glimpse of this future. He saw that these three Antichrists would preface this Kingdom and in some way go against the lineage of David. Many misnomers are associated with antichrist and its meaning in our current times, because not many people know the meaning of the word Christ. But it is simple now that we know the meaning of the word Christ. Anti simply means against. So Anti -Christ means against Christ. Or against the reality that Christ must be a male sperm descendant of King David. Nostradamus knew the term Antichrist is only mentioned in the letters of John in the Bible. Let us look at how Nostradamus saw those and try to glean a more complete understanding of the term Antichrist.
1 John 2:18: "Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come, they went out from us but were not of us."
We see from this verse antichrists were all ready around at the time of John (circa 80-90 AD). It is also apparent that the antichrists considered themselves Christians in Johns time as "they went out from us [the True Christians]."
2:22 "Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son."
Here we see that the antichrist denies the Father and the Son. Those that deny that Jesus (the Son) is the Christ deny that he is descended from king David through his physical father Joseph. John calls those that deny this lineage of Jesus liars and antichrist. And again:
4:2 "Every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God and every spirit which does not confess is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you have heard that it was coming, and now (90 AD) it is in the world already."
In this verse John makes it clear that the spirit of antichrist was in the world already in 90 AD. From these verses and the definition of the word Christ, it becomes clear what is meant by antichrist. Unfortunately, as paganism crept into Christianity practically from the start, and was confirmed by Constantine at the council of Nicea in 325 AD, many came to believe Jesus was God-incarnate and not descended from David through his biological father Joseph. "...Who (Jesus) was descended from David according to the flesh [a flesh and blood descendant], and designated Son of God according to the spirit..." (Romans 1:3,4) It is this fact, Jesus being descended from David, as John says, "has come in the flesh," which when denied is the spirit of antichrist. Any Christian that denies this lineage of Jesus from King David is antichrist. But, Nostradamus said three of these Antichrists would be so powerful as to take peace from the whole earth. So unlike your normal antichrist, these antichrists that Nostradamus saw would actually act on their belief and try to extinguish this lineage and have large groups of followers.
The first two antichrists Nostradamus predicted are Napoleon and Hitler. Napoleon was the first Anti-Christ as the belief (erroneously) at his time was that the kings of Europe claimed lineage back to David and were Divinely appointed to there position. He made war on these kings as well as the Pope, who claims to be the Vicar of Christ on earth. Hence, Antichrist #1. Hitler he prophesied by name, but he was off by one letter, spelling it Hister. Hitler on the other hand was aware that the Heir to the Throne would come from the line of David and the House of Judah and was prophesied to rule over the whole earth. He therefore figured in order for himself to rule the world he must extinguish this lineage, but not knowing which Jew was descended from David, he attempted to kill them all. Thus, Antichrist #2. But, the third Antichrists is the most terrible of them all. The first two Antichrists didn't know who was the heir, but the third one did know, didn't make any mistake and has attempted to end the lineage.
At the beginning of Nostradamus' book (C 1 Q2) he explains he derived his insights by meditating on the BRANCHES. These are the same Branches that appear in all caps in Zechariah Chapter 3 (KJV), which pertains to the Second Coming of Christ. In the book Late Great Planet Earth by author Hal Lindsey, he shows that two distinct portraits of a Messiah or Christ emerge out of Old Testament prophecies. One would be rejected by his countrymen, suffer and die on the cross to atone for sins. The other would come seated on the Throne of David, would have a government on his shoulders, and would usher in an era of peace and Justice. Jesus, the first Christ, fulfilled the portrait for this suffering Messiah as he fulfilled Old Testament prophecies by Name, Date, Address and Mission. This golden criteria can be applied perfectly to the Claim of Baha'u'llah, translated -the Glory of the Father, who fulfills the prophecies of Name, Date, Address, and Mission for the Second Coming of Christ. Baha'u'llah is the HEIR TO THE THRONE OF DAVID. (Proclamation of Baha'u'llah, pg.89), and came with the blueprint for the "Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven" which is the government of God ruling from the throne of king David spoken of as the House of the Lord in Isaiah Chapter 2. He has come to usher in an era of World Peace and Justice and is the Divine Physician who brings the medicine for this sick world. He is the Father (Baha'u'llah=Glory of the Father) referred to in John 2:22. As Baha'u'llah is the Father, he who denies Him is also Antichrist.
Many people have tried to understand these prophecies but to no avail. Let us now look at prophecies of Nostradamus' associated with the third Antichrist.
Century II quatrain 62
Mabus will soon die and there will come
A dreadful destruction of people and animals,
Suddenly vengeance will be revealed,
Hundred, hands, thirst and hunger when the comet will pass.
Century VI quatrain 33
His hand finally through the bloody ALUS,
He will be unable to protect himself by sea,
Between two rivers he will fear the military hand,
The black and angry one will make him repent of it.
In Erika Cheetham's book The Prophecies of Nostradamus on page 261 she explains that the name of the third antichrist is tied up in these two quatrains. She entitles this section, "Name of the Third Antichrist?" She then goes on to say...
"ALUS is another unsolved mystery. I wonder if this connects with the fearsome Mabus of II. 62?"
ALUS is ALlied US forces; i.e. the countries that assisted the US in the Gulf War, and Mabus is Saddam Hussein. When we hold this name Mabus up to the mirror we get sudaM. Mabus = sudaM. Sudam is Saddam Hussein. It is no longer a mystery and yes indeed they are connected! So we find that when Saddam Hussein (mabus) dies we will see a dreadful destruction. The comet referred to is the comet Lee, which was made visible during the solar eclipse that passed over the Holy Land in August of 1999. It was at this time that we would know who this antichrist was. Now, "His" in C6 Q 33 is Saddam Hussein (Mabus) as "he will be unable to protect himself by sea." This is because Kuwait, which was at one time the 19th province of Iraq, now independent, blocks his entry to the sea. The "two rivers" that he is between are the Tigris and the Euphrates, which flow right through Baghdad, Iraq. General Schwarzkopf is the "black and angry one" as his name means black head as it is translated from the German. He was the commander during the Gulf war who made Saddam repent because of the devastating effects of the sanctions imposed upon Iraq following the war. Finally, Cheetham says,
"There is a repetition of the French word MAIN' in connection with both quatrains. It may be an approximation of the name of the third Antichrist tying up with the cryptic quatrain (II. 28) where Nostradamus seems to be trying to spell the letters of his name."
Cheetham knows that MAIN' is the name of the third Antichrist. When we turn to quatrain II.28 She says Nostradamus gives the syllables han and da being in the spelling of the name of the third Antichrist. Syllable Han with syllable Da is Handa, which is clearly more than an approximation. The French word main is Hands. "Handa"= Hands, "Hands" is the name of the Third Antichrist! Nostradamus gives the exact name of the Antichrist, "HANDS" three times!
Self-appointed Nostradamus expert, John Hogue from Seattle, in his many books gives a list of possible persons who could be the person the Antichrist could be going against. He names Abdu'l- Baha as a possible person. Nostradamus is clear the Antichrist must be opposed to the BRANCHES. Abdu'l-Baha was the son of the Second Coming of Christ, Baha'u'llah, and was called the Most Great Branch. This Christ lineage of David continued through him, symbolized by a rod of wood. This lineage which continued through him was called the BRANCHES-Persian Aghsan. These Hands opposed the Branches (Aghsan.) This Branch (rod of wood, Aghsan) was to be the executive of Baha'u'llah's Universal House of Justice (UHJ). The legislative body of this UHJ is symbolized by a rod of Iron, which in conjunction with the rod of wood makes a branch of pure gold, which is the medicine for this sick world. In Abdu'l-Baha's Charter for this UHJ, he says,
"The legislative body must reinforce the executive, the executive must aid and assist the legislative body so that through the close union and harmony of these two forces, the foundation of fairness and justice may become firm and strong, that all the regions of the world may become even as Paradise itself." (`Abdu'l-Baha: Will and Testament, Page: 15)
The Hands opposed this Charter and threw out the Executive Branch thereby opposing the Branches and breaking the Covenant.
Shoghi Effendi, Aghsan Branch, Grandson of Abdu'l-Baha, worked diligently to set up an International Baha'i Council with a descendant of David as president making a branch of pure gold. But he had an untimely death. On Nov. 4, 1957 Shoghi Effendi, in the middle of a ten-year plan to establish this IBC, was killed. The events surrounding his death are very suspicious. Did the Hands Murder Shoghi Effendi? In the Charter for this UHJ the role of these 27 Hands was to protect Shoghi Effendi and when he died, the Hands power died with him. But seizing the opportunity in the dismay that followed, they grabbed the International Baha'i office in the East on Mt. Carmel and the Baha'i office in the UN building in the West. These Hands knew Baha'u'llah was the Second Coming of Christ, the Heir to the throne of David, and opposed him. They knew this executive must be a descendant of David, Aghsan, and threw it out and opposed it. Antichrist #3!
These Baha'is main office is in Haifa, Israel. Nostradamus prophesied that a meteor would crash in to the Aegean Sea very close to where Israel is located. A major Baha'i office in the west is located in the United Nations building in New York City, which is also prophesied by Nostradamus to be a ground zero target. He has four or five prophecies about the destruction of New York, which will be nuked immediately after Saddam Hussein is killed as stated in Century II Quatrain 62 and correlated in C X Q 49 and C VI Q 97.
In the Tablet of the Holy Mariner by Baha'u'llah, He prophesied these words
"...They [ the Hands] have desired to ascend unto that state which the lord hath ordained above their stations.... Whereupon the burning meteor cast them out from them that abide in the Kingdom of his Presence..."
This tablet is prefaced by Abdu'l Baha in which he says:
"...Study this tablet well that ye may know the truth, and consider that the Blessed Beauty (Baha'u'llah) hath fully foretold future events...Let them that perceive take warning."
In the book of Revelation a meteor a quarter mile wide is prophesied as one of the four winds of destruction.
The sole purpose of this article is to warn those that desire nearness to God, to independently investigate the Truth of this matter. God promised that he would not lie to David- he would NEVER lack a man to sit on his Throne as long as the Sun shall endure (Psalms 89:35,36). These Hands have turned away from Gods promise. They have been meddling and manipulating in political affairs through their offices in the East and the West. They and the "Friends" are intricately intertwined in the events surrounding the Gulf War and the Sanctions that have killed 2 million Iraqis, mostly children. As strict adherence to the teachings of Baha'u'llah are the only thing that can fix the ills of this world, the Hands denial of these teachings will prevent peace from being established on earth. By the prophecies of Nostradamus we have proved that these Hands are the third Antichrist!
Fortunately, Shoghi Effendi's son is alive in the world today. The Hands have failed to eliminate the Branches (Aghsan) as a descendant of David, seated on the Throne, is alive in the world today!

ã September, 1999
Two months after the initial publication of this expose, several copies were hand delivered to the Baha'i World Faith authorities at the administrative headquarters of the west in Wilmette, Illinois. Unknown to the faithful messengers at the time, their effort at once a warning but also a message of salvation, fulfilled yet another prophecy of Nostradamus!
Century VIII Quatrain 77
The Third Antichrist will soon be annihilated,
Twenty-Seven years his war will last.
The Unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;
With blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.
On November 26, 1972, the headless monster called the UHJ, administrative governing body of the sans-Guardian Baha'i World Faith (BWF) collectively signed a document entitled: "The Constitution of the Universal House of Justice." This constitution solidified all the power in the BWF to be held in the hands of these Hands through their bogus UHJ. Thus began in the BWF a series of intimidation and strong-arm tactics over its professed believers, and a complete, final and utter division from the principles and teachings of its founder, the Second Coming of Christ, Baha'u'llah. These covenant-breaking Hands on that day were established as de Facto leaders of the sans-Guardian Baha'i World Faith and its duped and unwitting adherents. The Third Antichrist had assumed its throne! But it wasn't to last long.
The day which this pamphlet was put into the hands of the sans-Guardian Baha'i World Faith was November 26, 1999, the day of the Covenant, Exactly twenty-seven years to the day from this usurpation and gross violation of the Covenant by the Hands! Exposing it to be the Third Antichrist and making the truth known that the war is over, the Truth is out, and the Hands error is made manifest. Two months later the prime organizer, the Arch-covenant breaker Ruhiyyih Khanum died signifying the beginning of the end and demise of these violators and the annihilation of the third Antichrist.
