I hear what you're saying! "The Whore" has been thought by some to mean many things, from an entire country to all debased religions. The bottom
line seems to be: that absolute power corrupts absolutely. This part of Revelation is also translated by some to be the dressed-up travesty of many
religions as well as all of the wicked deeds done in God's name- which is blasphemy (the very thing that the Whore is full of & represents).
To be fair, Nostradamus didn't steal his prophecy from the Bible- he was of a Jewish family that converted to Christianity, and knew the Bible well;
God began sending him visions that elabourated upon the Bible in order to prepare believers for the Millennium. God told him that the reason He wanted
Nostradamus to see and write His Word was so that people in the future would see what was coming in time to stop it. Nostradamus would meditate far
into the night while gazing upon a bronze bowl of water- God showed him the visions upon the water's surface.
Nostradamus prophesied, amongst other things, three World Wars, as well as the downfall of the Roman Catholic Church. He foresaw the Protestant
Reformation, King Louis 14th, Napoleon, Hitler, & much else. His Quatrains are written in a mystifying blend of Old Provencal French, Latin, Greek,
anagrams and astrological alignments. There are no good translations of his work available for commercial sale; many scholars who do good unpublished
translations (myself included!) understand the importance of the old saying, "if you want something done right, do it yourself!"
Many people do not like to give Nostradamus his due, because so many of his prophecies have not yet come true. Because his Quatrains are difficult for
modern-day people to decipher, he has a lot of skeptical critics out there who prefer to write him off. As one who has diligently studied his
prophecies since I was a teenager, I can see what he was warning humanity of coming true every day, especially now.
In a nutshell, the Church as it is today will fall, according to this prophet, but be rebuilt by an incorruptible priest from an impoverished French
family named Pere Pierre (Father Peter), who will be the last Pope. I know good people in the Church and in no way wish to insult or hurt anyone; only
warn them of what this prophet has to say in modern day terms. I pray & hope that the right people will address all of the problems foretold of in
time to stop them; may we all be on our best behaviour & work for the enlightenment of this world!
