When the dead come out of their graves .... could be a biblical
reference. When Christ was killed on the cross there was a
great earthquake and the dead rose from the graves and were
seen throughout the city walking around.
This could have references to another such biblical event -
the second coming? It could be that there will be another
tsunami and this time instead of sucking people out to sea,
it deposits the 250,000 dead - from the last one - back on
to land (that would be the dead coming out of their graves).
Perhaps a great earthquake that reveals underground tombs
never before seen or known? Things like that.
Has 6000 years of history past?
There is much anticipation for this millennium, but a failure to understand the significance of the year 2,000 A.D. This year ends 6,000 years of history according to Bible chronology and begins the seventh millennium. According to an Irish-English archbishop named Ussher (1581-1656 A.D.), a biblical chronologist, there were 4,000 years from Adam to the Messiah and we are 2,000 years after the Messiah’s birth, giving a total of 6,000 years.
What this means is that the new millennium is the seventh thousandth year from Adam or it is the last one in this week of millenniums before we start another week of millenniums. In short, this seventh millennium is a Sabbath millennium.
To understand the Sabbath millennium requires some knowledge of not only the Sabbath, but also an understanding of the number seven in Jewish theology.
What is the symbolism of the Hebrew number "7" in the Torah?
Century 10, Quatrain 74:
The year 7 of the great number accomplished,
It will appear at the time of the games of hecatombe (slaughter),
Not far from the age of the great millennium,
When the dead will come out of their graves.
The great number accomplished...2000...the year 7 of that number (near the great millennium)...2007. Nostradamus mentions the games of hecatombe (Jeux d'Hecatombe). Most interpreters have this translated as the "games of slaughter" but let's look at this verse more closely. Hecatombe was an event which occurred on the 4th day of the Olympic games of ancient Greece in Athens every 4 years. On that day 100 cattle were slaughtered and sacrificed to the gods and everyone feasted for free...a big time BBQ. Sporting events held on that day included running, but more importantly, wrestling, boxing and the most violent one, pankration, which was a combination of wrestling, boxing, kicking...a no holds barred competition where the participants wore no gloves or wrappings on their fists. I believe this was the most popular event of the entire games, indeed, the day of Hecatombe was probably the favorite day of the Olympics and one Nostradamus could substantially attach to one of his visions or prophecies in relating what he saw. ex]

Que les entres sortiront de leur tombe.
That enter them will leave their tomb.
This is not at all saying the dead will rise. It could just as well be saying that people will enter bomb shelters without hope of emerging from them, and survive.
