Well, my goodness, I can't even find this person, anywhere! When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war, The number of them is like the sand of the seashore and they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the Saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false-prophet are also, and they will be tormented day and night forever, and ever. [Revelation 20:7-10]. My friends, we have not even begun to see God's power.

the anti christ is NOT only charming, eloquent but will silence those who oppose him. so many will placate to his power & authority in order to eat, & live their day to day life.
remember all the dictators in the 20th century. they took charge for the 'good' of the people but imprisoned those who oppose his policies.

Nostradamus (as well as anyone else of the time) had to be very careful to not make specfic predictions, for fear of being branded a heretic by the church. So they often used symbolic language. In his case, his predictions use much word play.
For example, he uses the name "Pax Ney Loron" several times, which many Nostradamus scholars believe is an anagram for "Napolyon Rex" (Napoleon the King).
He also uses the name "Hister" (an old name for the Danube river) to describe a very Hitler-like person.
For anyone who objects to non-literal symbolic language, they should take a closer look at Daniel and Revelation, which are full of such language.

You really should try reading comments, and the questions soliciting them, in their respective context... rather than merely looking to rack up points for the most on-line "Biblical" contentions. It won't get ya to heaven--honest.
My answer was in relation to a "specific anti-Christ"--the final anti christ.
Of course, there are many antichrists. Most all of us know this. Check this out, though: I'll bet, if you re-read the question and my answer, and look real hard, you'll notice I stuffed in them little quotation marks (followed by a parenthetical description) just so's people, such as yourself, wouldn't be confused as to which of those "anti-Christs" I meant. LOL

Obama reminded me what the anti-Christ will surely be like: handsome,charming, eloquent, mesmerizing, causing people to chant words of great passion but little meaning, and possibly even swooning in his presence. The way people followed him shows me that we are ripe for a world leader who will claim to unite the whole world.
As for Nostradamus, how can anyone KNOW if any of his predictions come true? He never mentioned Napoleon of Hitler. "Nostradamus predicted that a captain of Germany will seduce the people & scholars"?. Perhaps that captain is yet to come. How do we know? What is required to be a "scholar" of Nostradamus? It's all a matter of interpretation. His language is entirely symbolic.

I tend to agree with you about Bush. Seems to me the anti-christ will have to win over the so-called Christians first and Obama doesn't remotely fit that bill.
---Jan on 3/16/10|
\\So who is Mabus? Are some of you thinking Obama\\
Jan, I don't believe that Obama has enough spiritual oomph to be the Antichrist--much less spiritual significance.
Bush fils came much closer to this by cynically manipulating the religious feelings of others to get into office.
\\There's but one "anti-Christ"....\\
That's not what the Bible says, BruceB.
1 John 2:18
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists, whereby we know that it is the last time.

Nostradamus is entertainment!
2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
There's but one "anti-Christ" (man of sin: beast: abomination of desolation), and he ain't gonna be revealed until it's time for him to be.
So, why would anyone believe God would reveal him to Nostradamus... and not to Jesus or His disciples? I'd suggest believing God... over soothsayers, sorcerers, and witches.
---BruceB on 3/16/10|
Who is "Mabus"? Nobody of any importance.
Why are you putting so much stock in Nostradamus and fearmongering stories about non-existent planets?
---Cluny on 3/15/10|
So who is Mabus? Are some of you thinking Obama?

The test for a prophet is never making a false prediction.
Nostradamus has made false predictions.
I would offer that he IS a forward thinker though because many of the things he forecasted DID become true.
But, the same thing could be said of many science fiction writers.
For that matter, I predicted digital photography, color Xerox machines, PDA's, and I-phone technology all at least 10-20 years before they all became reality. All it requires is a little bit of logic and forethought.

the definition of antichrist according to wikipedia
antichrist - can mean not only 'against' & 'opposite' but also 'IN PLACE OF'
one who fulfills biblical prophecies concerning an adversary of christ WHILE RESEMBLING HIM IN A DECEPTIVE MANNER
---jim on 3/12/10|
according to nostradamus there were already 2 anti christ HE predicted - napoleon & hitler
nostradamus predicted that a captain of germany will seduce the people & scholars said it is hitler. Hitler is a CORPORAL not a captain. then that is wrong.
what about stalin. he killed millions of russians.
does mabus mean saddam or osama? nostradamus scholars combined osaMABUSh
will osama ignite World war 3? if that is the case then we are all dead by now
---jim on 3/12/10|
it seems all that will happen in the future will revolve around nostradamus
history channel had a week or month about that future and they titled it
THE NOSTRADAMUS EFFECT.
nostradamus made plenty of mistakes & people who believe in his predictions will make any interpretation of his quartranes.
I have experienced how people pervert, exploit & manipulate so circumstances will revolve around them.
---jim on 3/12/10|
I believe it's the history channel that is pushing out all this Nostradamus stuff right now. Someone located at the Vatican a supposed "Lost Book of Nostradamus" and that is where all these newer prophecy are coming from.
---Jimbo on 3/12/10|
Nepoleon and Hitler.
---Jan on 3/12/10|
If he will be the third, who are the first two?
---StrongAxe on 3/12/10|
Jan, you really worry about some of the strangest things.
Since Nostradamus is not a prophet at all, does it really MATTER what he says about Mabus, Antichrist, or anybody else?
