Prophecy & Prophets > Index
Michel de Nostredame (14 December or 21 December 1503 – 2 July 1566), usually Latinised to Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide. He is best known for his book Les Propheties ("The Prophecies"), the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events.
There are several Nostradamus experts today, even the History channel has refered to some as prophecy experts. However, it should be noted that none of these experts offer any evidence that anyone has ever interpreted any of Nostradamus's quatrains specifically enough to allow a clear identification of any event in advance. That is, all interpretations of Nostradamus's prophecies are about events that have already happened. There are no interpretations of his prophecies yet to come.Native American (13)
The Hopi prophecies are probably the most famous, as they talk about the "Age of Purification", and there are many people that believe the signs foretold in this prophecy have happened in the last 50 years or so.
Mohawk Prophecy of the Seventh Generation - According to the prophecy of the Seventh Generation, seven generations after contact with the Europeans the Onkwehonwe would see the day when the elm trees would die. Man would grow ashamed of the way that he had treated his Mother and Provider, the Earth... Seven generations have probably come and gone?
Iroquois Prophecy - It's prophesied in our Instructions that the end of the world will be near when the trees start dying from the tops down. That's what the maples are doing today.
Lee Brown, Cherokee - Excerpt from a talk at the 1986 Continental Indigenous Council, Fairbanks, Alaska - There was the cycle of the mineral, the rock. There was the cycle of the plant. And now we are in the cycle of the animal coming to the end of that and beginning the cycle of the human being. When we get into the cycle of the human being, the highest and greatest powers that we have will be released to us.Shipton and Agharti (11)
Mother Shipton (circa 1486-1561) was a legendary English witch and soothsayer, known as the Yorkshire Sibyl. She is supposed to have been born at Dropping Well, Knaresborough, Yorkshire, in about the year 1486. No biographical information concerning her is based upon trustworthy sources.
The first publication of her prophecies, which did not appear until 1641, eighty years after her death, contained a number of mainly regional predictions, but only two prophetic verses -- neither of which foretold the End of the World, despite widespread assumptions to that effect.Maori (4)
The Maori religious movements which have lasted longest and retained the largest membership are Ringatu and Ratana, now both regarded as Maori Christian churches.
The legends of the New Zealand Maori recall times when the earth was wracked by every possible form of natural disaster. From the apparent impact of a comet to the birth of a land from the sea itself, their records are a close match with those of other ancient cultures that recall battles among gods, lands in torment, and heroes and heroines who paved the way for those who survived to start afresh. Maori prophecy also hints at such things happening again.Bible/Misc. (14)
