December 21, 2012: Should I be Worried?
Answer: No! Start worrying in 2023.
Unless you are living under a rock you have heard about Nostradamas, the man who, 500 years ago, made an estimated 6,338 predictions/prophecies. Followers claim he predicted everything from Hitler to 9/11, the death of Princess Diana, along with the assassination of just about every important person in history.
The problem with believing this Nostradrama nonsense is that all the “prophecies” require you interpret his metaphors and cryptic verses, add some numerology, and come up with a major event that fits the quatrain. Almost any circumstance can be made to fit Nostradamus’ ambiguous style.
No one is really sure if Nostradamus was trying to predict the future when he wrote the quatrains, published in Les Propheties (The Prophecies) in 1555.
This is one of the more popular quatrains; it is said to describe Hitler (Hister) at a meeting with Mussolini in which they made plans for Italy to formally enter the Second World War.
The problem, of course, is that Hister was the term used in the time of Nostradamus to describe the Danube river. The quatrain does seem to describe a war that has some relation to Germany, but there is no way of connecting this to Hitler or the Second World War.

Nostradamus: the World will not End in 2012
What surprises me is that people believe Nostradamus predicted the End-of-the-World in 2012:
Century I. Quatrain 48, like most of his prophecies, doesn’t even have a date. Click here to read a thorough debunking that the world will end in 2012.
Nostradamus: the World will End 4 months before 2023
The following quatrains of Nostradamus arithmetically predict the End-of-the-World and a frightening scenario of the future at the end of 2022.
Jupiter and Saturn joined in Aries, Eternal God what changes. When after a long century the bad times will return In France and Italy what turmoil. Century 1. Quatrain 51
The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aries is very rare. The astronomical conjunction occurred almost two hundred years ago, and then again on September 2, 1995.
Nostradamus refers to the 20th century as the long century. The long century brings this quatrain into the present time. The bad times in France and Italy have been going on during the 20th and 21st century.
Nostradamus uses the word “midy,” or people of the south, to denote the world of Islam. Some people have claimed the word “Levant” applies to the Isle de Levant, a small island off the coast of France close to Hyeres. Others have claimed it signifies Japan, as in “soleil levant” or the rising sun. However, in Nostradamus’ time, it would have been understood as the Levant coast, stretching from Syria through Lebanon and Israel, to the Egyptian border in the eastern Mediterranean. The word “Escarboucles” means carbuncle or garnet, which is poppy or blood red, and signifies revolution. The famine mentioned at the end of the Sixain is of world wide proportions.
We have September 2, 1995 as the starting point; now we need to find the duration of these troubles:
We can assume the third antichrist will be the last one in history.
Long awaited he will never return in Europe, in Asia he will appear.. One of the leaguer issued from the great Hermes, and he will have power above all the kings of the East. Century 10. Quatrain 75
In Hermetic terms the God Hermes stands for Mercury, with Jupiter indicating Islam. Therefore, Nostradamus states the problems the Antichrist starts will last for 27 years.
September 2,1995 + 27 years = September 2, 2022.
Nostradamus: the World will End 4 months before 2023
Paracelsus, in the Twenty Ninth figure of his prognostications, shows a lamb with a bishop’s mitre on its head feeding beneath a tree, and is accompanied by the following:
Most of the prognostications of Paracelsus concern countries, institutions, establishments and monarchies. Figure 29 seems to refer to the individual and, in particular, to a state of change that each individual can reach. This corresponds to the great change that is forecast in the Bible: a total renewal, a resurrection. The date given at the end is confusing since there is no such Roman numeral. At first glance it could be 43, but in Roman numerals this would be XLIII, in other words 50 minus ten plus 3. The fact that Paracelsus tells us this is a year is the clue to the correct interpretation of the figure. XX (20) XX (20) III (3) = 2023!
Daniel: the World will End in 2023 
The Second Coming Of Christ is generally considered the End-of-the-World as we know it.
Note: Christians incorrectly believe Mark 13:32 is a commandment by God that no one is allowed to know something that even the angels in heaven don’t know.
God didn’t say you can’t know the year, and in fact, Daniel in chapter 12, verses 11&12 says Jesus will cometh back in 1335 days.
And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be 1290 days. Dan 12, v11
Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the 1335 days. Dan 12, v12
In order to calculate the date of the 2nd Coming of the Messiah and the End-of-the World, we need to identify the abomination that maketh desolate.
There are three stumbling blocks that have kept mankind and scholars from fully understanding the book of Revelation and the event that ranks as one of the most important in the history of the Jews, Christians and Muslims: “The abomination of the desolation.”
James Hastings, M.A., D.D. in the seventeenth century published a dictionary of the Bible that analyzes the different interpretations of Daniel 11:31. He concludes the “Abomination” refers to “The setting up by Antiochus Epiphanies of a small idol/altar on the altar of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem in 167 BC” and the Maccabean revolution.
Jesus contradicts this interpretation in the gospels,
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand). Mathew 24:15
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand). Mark 13:14
The two verses refer to a conversation between Jesus, Peter, James and Andrew on the Mount of Olives. Before he mentions the abomination Jesus says the following to his disciples admiring the grandeur of the temple.
Here Jesus is prophesying an event that is to take place within the lifetime of the disciples. August 29th in 70 A.D. (the exact same day the Babylonians burned down Solomon’s temple 657 years earlier) the Roman army razed Herod’s Temple to the ground.
As Jesus places the event of the abomination after the destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. and uses the words “when ye shall see” (Mark 13:14), he places the event in the future.
It is impossible that the abomination spoken of by Jesus could have taken place prior to 70 A.D. and therefore any exegesis that identifies the abomination, as 167 B.C. is the “error” made over 1400 years ago.
Jesus predicts the location of the abomination will be somewhere that is not only a “holy place,” but also a place that under normal circumstances would be forbidden.
Within the Jewish faith the biblical term “holy place” can only mean The Holy Temple in Jerusalem. After its destruction in 70 A.D. leaving only the Western or Wailing Wall, the Holy Temple was never rebuilt. The ground where the Temple stood, the Temple Mount, and the Wailing Wall is to the Jews “the most holy place” in Jerusalem.
Construction begins on the abomination of desolation in 688 A.D.
On the death of Abu Bakr, Omar ibn al Khattab, advisor to Mohammed became the second caliph and ordered that a magnificent golden domed mosque, Islam’s third holiest shrine, be built… directly over “the most holy place” in Jerusalem.
The Mosque of Omar, The Dome of the Rock is the correct identification of the abomination of desolation.
Applying the date of 688 A.D. to Daniel
Biblical scholars acknowledge the words of Ezekiel who wrote 30 years before Daniel. “I have appointed thee each day for a year”. Using each day for a year, 
And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up in 688 A.D., there shall be 1290 years. Daniel 12:11
Blessed is he that waiteth for the Messiah and cometh to the 1335 years or 2023. 12:12
Revelation Chapter 11, verse 2&3 confirms this date.
These two verses appear to be talking about the same time scale and the same event. But only if we assume an average month is thirty days – then forty-two months = 1260 days. An “average month” does not account for the extra day for a leap year. Using the reckonings from the Julian calendar and the extra day, the period of forty-two months is 1279 not 1260 days.
We also know verse 1 refers to the area outside the temple as being in the hands of the Gentiles (non Jews) as well as the holy city of Jerusalem for 1279 years (“each day for a year”.); and in verse 2 the two witnesses of God, the Houses of Judah and Israel, will prophesy or preach for a similar 1260 years “clothed in sackcloth.” Sackcloth is symbolic of regret, repentance and mourning.
What these two verses are saying is that the Jewish people will lose their place of worship including the city of Jerusalem; it will be given over to non Jewish people until the first few hours of the six-day war in 1967 (688 A.D. + 1279) when for the first time since the capture of Jerusalem and destruction of the temple by Titus in 70 A.D. the Jewish people not only had their own state May 14th 1948 (688 A.D. + 1260) they once again controlled “the most holy place” in Jerusalem.
So now the Bible has correctly given us the two most important dates in the history of the Jewish people in this century; 1948, 1967.
The last date recorded in Daniel, the Second Coming Of Christ and the End-of-the-World as we know it can now be calculated. 
Notice Daniel uses the term “Blessed.” Blessed is found throughout the Bible and is a word which is always a description of a state of grace that each individual can attain. A oneness with God, a state of redemption can be better understood by the following verse from Revelation:
Blessed is he that hath part in the first resurrection, Rev 20, v6
In this verse the first resurrection refers to an apocalyptic event in our future, an event described in the preceding verse of Revelation.
These two verses reveal the enormity of the message given in the last verse of the book Daniel. Within the verse he is telling us that those who reach the 1335 days being blessed, have passed through Judgment Day, or as it is described in the Koran, “the day of resurrection.” Once again we must obey the instruction laid down by Ezekiel and count those days as years and again the starting point of our calculation is the abomination. 
688 AD + 1335 years = 2023
Having been given this final dating Daniel is then told, in the last verse of his book:
The finality of this last verse is unequivocal and relates directly to the penultimate verse stating as it does that those who reach the 1335 days [years] are not only blessed but will have reach the “end of the days”.
Nostradamus: the World will End 4 months before 2023
Paracelsus: the World will End in 2023
Daniel: the World will End in 2023
When should you start worrying?
Answer: August 2022!
Rachel Alebev was born in Israel in 1957 and served in the Israeli army. In 1994 she earned her PhD at King’s College, London.
 A summary of the Cassandra Prophesy, published in 1999, can be read in the Canada Free Press archives, Is Jesus Christ Coming Back to Earth in XXXXIII (2023)
 The instruction that each day should count as a year, though given to Ezekiel specifically, would have been understood by the other biblical prophets, including Daniel, as applying to them as well.
Writing some thirty years after Ezekiel the words “I have appointed thee each day for a year” were to Daniel, the true word of God and as such became constant. Therefore the 390 days refers to 390 years from the House of Israel’s capture and deportation to Nineveh in 722 BC to their return to Jerusalem after Alexander’s conquest in 332 BC. The forty days refers to the forty years of the House of Judah’s deportation to Babylon after the capture of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar. Having now identified and rectified the second error we can apply them to the timings given in the Bible with incredible results. St. John writing in Revelation would have been aware of the instruction that each day should be counted as a year and so the “1260 days” of Revelation 11 &12, become years. Taking the dates of the abomination that maketh desolate as the beginning of the period of Jewish desolation, we have 688 AD.
