Comment by Van Berkel

Source text: 2000-Chomarat-facsimile
Les fleurs passés diminue le monde,
Long temps la paix terres inhabitées: 
Seur marchera par ciel,terre mer,& onde
Puis de nouueau les guerres suscitées.

The scourges passed the world shrinks,
For a long time peace and unpopulated lands.
One will travel safely by air, land, sea and wave,
Then the wars stirred up anew.

Van Berkel categorizes this quatrain as a millennium quatrain.
The first line. The "scourges" are a reference to Revelations 6, where seven seals are broken and numerous disasters occur. The "shrinking of the world" matches with Revelations 8,1 and next, where it reads that because of numerous disasters one third of the entire creation will be destroyed.
The second line. The "long time of peace" is the biblical kingdom of one thousand years, as described in Revelations 20. Nostradamus writes to Henry II that one of the features of this kingdom is a general peace between God and humanity.
The fourth line matches with Revelations 20,7-10. Satan is released for a short period and will fight his last war with the heavenly armies. Nostradamus writes in his letter to Henry II also about the release of Satan. The investigation, on which Nostradamus, astrology and the Bible is based, has shown that that this war will occur from November 9, 3797, until April 25, 3827.

Les fleaux passés diminué le monde:
Long temps la paix terres inhabitées: 
Seur marchera par ciel, terre mer & onde:
Puis de nouveau les guerres suscitées.

Brind'Amour does not date this quatrain, neither does he give comment on its meaning. He rephrases it in his own words.[1]
