By means of the
letters of Nostradamus and the quatrains, it is made clear that he
calculates the number of years of existence of the world with an
astrological model, using biblical time dates. The time model
Nostradamus created, is called the "millennium model". This
model is compared with calculations of contemporary astrologers
regarding the number of years of existence of the world.
quatrains are discussed, which contain clues which refer to the millennium
final date of the millennium model can be traced in the letter to the
French king Henry II. In this letter, an astrological clue is hidden in
the second set of predictions. With this clue, the final date of the
millennium model is calculated.

investigation shows that the zodiacal longitudes of the planets,

the "reference number system" will be discussed, an
arithmetical clue that is necessary to calculate years of fulfilment for
those quatrains in which years are mentioned, such as the year 1999.
Bible and the message of Nostradamus
quatrains and the letters, it becomes clear that Nostradamus uses the
Bible for several purposes. He uses biblical dates for his calculations,
he uses biblical verses for his predictions and he quotes verses in
order to demonstrate that his visions are divine. He also tries to
demonstrate that God permits the practice of (judicial) astrology.
From the quatrains and letters, the message that Nostradamus wants to
share with humanity, becomes clear. He writes that in a period of about
2300 years, Gods judgment will come over humanity, by means of 1000
disastrous events. He also predicts that God will deal with Satan in the
biblical kingdom of 1000 years.
predictional value of the PROPHECIES
The predictional value of the Prophecies is estimated on historical,
astrological and biblical grounds. The cohesion of the two sets of
predictions Nostradamus has written, is also investigated. A number
of predictions that are expired, are compared with the course of history.
His biblical arguments are also discussed.
