2012 Doomsday Predictions: World War III Part Nine
The Rise of the Catholic Church
In his Epistle to Henry II, Nostradamus makes many startling prophecies alluding to the chemical warfare and the devastation of planet, but he also suggests that religion will revert back to the days of ancient times.
“Temples will be set up again as in ancient times.”
In the days of Sumeria, Babylonia, ancient Egypt, Greece and the early Roman Empire, people worshipped many Gods. The Hindu religion today still practices this, but throughout the Middle-East, Europe and the Americas where Islam and Christianity are prevalent, religion is monotheistic – in other words, they worship one God. In ancient Rome, people who worshipped many Gods were known as Pagans. Today, Pagans are incorrectly associated with the worship of Satan – just one of the many lies spewed out by Catholic officials.
Christianity is just over 2000 years old and was introduced to the world by the teachings of Jesus Christ. At the time the world was going through a spiritual transition from the Age of Aires, the lamb, to the Age of Pisces, the fish. You still find today many representations of lambs in ancient Egypt representing the Age of Aries. Similarly , the symbol of Jesus is the fish. It has been mentioned on a number of occasions on Nostradamuspredictions.org, together with many other sources you will find on the internet, the 21 December 2012 marks the transformation from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.
Following the death of Jesus, Christianity was frowned upon by Pagan Romans and the Jews. Christians were seen as outcasts of society and were persecuted for centuries. Their property was confiscated and they were subjected to torture so they would denounce their faith. If they refused they were killed – or as the Catholic Church puts it martyred.
This would all change in the 4th Century however, when Emperor Constantine the Great passed two laws that would eventually shift the balance of power into Catholic hands. The first step of the reversal began in 313AD when Constantine signed the Edict of Milan which ordered Christianity to be recognised as a religion and that persecutions against Christians had to stop. He even went as far as giving Christian leaders property so they could establish temples of worship.
In 325AD at the Council of Nicea was held for Christian bishops to establish the relationship between Jesus and God the Father, set dates for Christian festivals and to establish the laws to be adopted by the Catholic Church. Most of these mirrored the dates and rules pagans had been worshipping for centuries.
“The sepulcher, for long an object of such great veneration, will remain in the open, exposed to the sight of the heavens, the Sun and the Moon. The holy place will be converted into a stable for a herd large and small, and used for profane purposes.”
A Pagan came to be considered someone who was materialistic, self-indulgent, unconcerned with the future and uninterested in sophisticated religion, and thus a social stigma was attached to it causing people to turn to Christianity. By the end of the 4th century, people in the towns and cities had converted to Christianity, whereas people who lived in the countryside continued to worship their many Gods, like the sun, the earth and the moon. In Latin, the word Pagan literally means country dweller.
Furthermore, as Christianity became more popular within the city limits, the Catholic Church began to build their own churches on the foundations of Pagan Temples. By the 7th century, Paganism was all but wiped out and forgotten and their temples claimed by the Pope as property of the Roman Catholic Church.
Today, a Pagan is associated with the occult and Devil worship which has never been the case, such is the perversion of lies by the Catholic Church and the powerful families that conspire to change the course of history.
Yet the trail of historical event they have left shows that people have been forced to change their faith in the past, and Nostradamus predicts we will be forced to change it again in the future. And all at the whim of our egotistical leaders who struggle for power against one another, then sit back and let the rest of us suffer.
“…the Roman people will begin to re-establish themselves, chasing away some obscure shadows and recovering a bit of their ancient glory. But this will not be without great division and continual changes.”
Given we are on the precipice of the dawn of a New Age, we may find that history repeats itself and, as Nostradamus suggests, we will witness “the great division and continual changes” during our lifetime that may well be cut short.
The New Age that astrologists talk about is the Age of Aquarius, the sign of the water-bearer. In the creation stories around the world, nearly all of them talk about the birth of civilisation and their creator Gods arising from water. In addition, there are more than a 100 flood legends found in the folklore of cultures around the world. Are we then on the cusp of a new creation story of the planet? If so, the world as we know must first come to an end. Is this what Nostradamus is trying to tell us?
