Bible Prophecies: The Fourth Seal of Revelation
In earlier articles we have seen the prophecies in both Revelation and Nostradamus predict the coming of the antichrist and world war three which subsequently leads to world famine. The prophecy told by the fourth seal of Revelation also share similarities with Nostradamus.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with Death, and with the beasts of the earth. Revelations 6:8
The colour of the fourth horse is deathly pale and represents pestilence, an epidemic of deadly diseases and plagues. The fallout of biochemical warfare will undoubtedly wreak havoc on our cattle and crops causing pestilence to sweep across effected nations. The subsequent food shortages will subsequently exacerbate widespread disease thus after war and famine, Death on his pale horse will send millions to their graves – indicated by his companion, Hades, the God of the Underworld and protector of the dead.
Nostradamus also offers clues with regards pestilence in his quatrains, but seems to indicate it will come after a world leader has been publicly executed –albeit unjustly.
Century 9 Quatrain 11
Wrongly will they come to put the just one to death,
In public and in the middle extinguished:
So great a pestilence will come to arise in this place,
That the judges will be forced to flee.
Nostradamus´ clues are typically unclear, though many scholars interpret the claim that the “middle extinguished,” relates to the Middle-East where the pestilence will hit the hardest. Given the ongoing conflicts in the Middle-East, it is difficult to argue against the conclusion of the scholars, even if Nostradamus was not so vague in many of his quatrains. But wouldn´t it make more sense that “middle” would carry a capital “M” or specifically state the Middle-East.
Also, take into account the last line of the quatrain – “the judges will be forced to flee.” This indicates that the “just one” who is put “to death,” is killed by the people of his own nation. Such an event would undoubtedly lead to rebellion and struggle for power. Given the people of one country are fighting amongst themselves pestilence of war is likely. So perhaps Nostradamus is referring to civil war here rather than a World War.
Turning our attention back to the bible prophecies however, the book of Jeremiah refers to war, famine and pestilence just as is predicted in Revelation.
And I will send the sword, the famine and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers. Jeremiah 24:10
The prophets that have gone before me and before thee of old prophesied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.” Jeremiah 28:8
Jeremiah is one of the most accurate of prophets listed in the Bible. He predicted Jesus would be a descendant of King David six centuries before the time of Christ. And given that he is backing the prophecies of seers that came before him, Jeremiah, Nostradamus and the book of Revelation all point to devastating times ahead.
