Is Ray Mabus Nostradamus’ MABUS?

Ray Mabus was sworn in yesterday as Secretary of the Navy. This fulfills a prediction I documented last year over a month before the national presidential elections in my digital book, see Antichrist.

There is a whole section about him in the chapter about Barack Obama called “Obama the Mabus.” I stated that Obama would pick Mabus as a member of his cabinet and that it would start doomsday tongues to wag about the return to the Middle East of the man who was Obama’s special advisor to Arab (Islamic) Middle Eastern affairs throughout his presidential campaign.

No one can deny that this former US Naval Officer, Governor of Mississippi and former US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia under President Clinton has the executive experience to be Secretary of the Navy and the hands-on diplomatic skill sets as the highest civilian official steering the US Navy in its chief arena of operations in the years to come. A majority of US Naval assets are patrolling the waters around the Arabian Peninsula either in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, fighting Somali pirates in the Gulf of Oman. There are also warships constantly stationed in waters directly familiar to Mabus during his short naval career in the early 1970s: the Eastern Mediterranean off the coast of Israel, Syria and Lebanon.

If there is a war between Israel and its Arab neighbors, if there is an air strike by Israel to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, if Pakistan collapses, Ray Mabus will have undeniable prophetic significance as the only candidate in my 25 years of search through Nostradamus’ clues for the man who would be Mabus. Indeed, he IS “Mabus” by birth name; however, I still do not believe the obvious is what Nostradamus meant. The name Mabus is a code name.

Whoever Mabus is, his death triggers the events listed in one of Nostradamus’ most apocalyptic prophecies. Ray Mabus just happens to be mentioned outright, either as a cruel coincidence or by the 16th-century seer’s prescient intent.

Century 2 Quatrain 62:

Mabus puis tost alors mourra, viendra,
De gens & bestes vne horrible defaite:
Puis tout  coup la vengeance on verra,
Cent, main, soif, faim, quand courra la comete.

Mabus very soon then will die, [then] will come,
A horrible undoing of people and animals,
At once one will see vengeance,
One hundred powers, thirst, famine, when the comet will pass.

Nostradamus (1555)

Here again is a brief overview about Nostradamus’ three antichrist and a breakdown of this prophecy I wrote back on 1 April in my blog entry entiled “Ray Mabus Upped the Antichrist?”


The person Nostradamus code named “Mabus” is believed to be the third and final man in an evil trinity. The first, code named “PAUNAYLORON.” The second, code named “Hister.” The third is code named “Mabus.”

Antichrist One is “Napoleon King” (PAUNAYLORON = NAPAULON ROY, old French for “Roi” — King).

Antichrist Two is “Hister” (Adolf “Hitler”).

To be beast-bitingly blunt, the above prophecy foretells the death of this “Mabus” triggering the unraveling (defaite) and undoing of humans and animals. That sounds both ecologically and apocalyptically lurid. Not only war but also climate change is inferred. A hundred nations go to war, because main in Old French is a heraldic allusion to the mail fisted right “hand” of state. We are therefore talking about 100 nations in a war of vengeance at once swift and devastating. It could undo the world.

The prophecy ends with the usual apocalyptic sequence Nostradamus used to convey dire times in the early 21st century: fresh water shortages from today’s super-droughts across Australia, the American South and Mediterranean, central Asia and Africa. Food production may not be sustained. Global famine lurks “when the comet will pass” or “run.”

A “comet” plays two roles in Nostradamus: either a falling missile or a portentous comet appearing in the sky in times of the final Antichrist.

[Not only Ray Mabus but his boss, President Obama] is one of four top candidates for Mabus. Mabus working for Obama might be just the kind of double entendre Nostradamus often utilized.

You see, not only does Barack “Obama” translate into “Mabus”:

Obama (phonetically pronounced “ouBama”) = Ubama = maabu = Mabu, etc. Add then the one missing letter by replacing the redundant “a” and you get Mabu(s).

Obama Mabu(s)?

Meet Ray Mabus, your pick for the next Secretary of the Navy.

Other candidates are out there, far more deserving the label “antichrist” than Obama or Ray.

Although there have been some interesting matches for Mabus that in the end did not stand the test of objective events, the coming of Ray Mabus into Obama’s cabinet is at least linguistically interesting. A perfect match, so it would seem.

I personally lean towards Saddam Hussein being Nostradamus’ best candidate for Mabus. I have not come to this conclusion lightly but have produced a digital book on the matter after 21 years on the trail of the Third Antichrist. You can see an overview about the book here: Mabus Obama.

Ray Mabus is not the first man to look like a perfect fit for Nostradamus’ Antichrist. Good leaders as well as evil leaders can also decode the name, such as Obama.

Who is Mabus?

This is the most topical of Nostradamian subjects. It is the prophetic mystery to solve of a detective story where soothsaying becomes “sleuth-saying” taking you through a fascinating labyrinth of possibilities, some of which are coming true in our times.

    I just want to simply comment that the first 2 Antichrist have something Very similar in common… They were both born in the chinese year of the Ox. Ox tend to be very dominant, and controlling to say the least… Having said that… President Obama – Also born in the chinese year of the Ox! So whoever this 3rd antichrist is. I do believe, they too will have that in common with the first 2… However, Saddam Hussein was also born in the year of the same animal… So those are my guesses. Those make the most logical sense to me. I have thought this for years… Osama Bin Laden does not fit the profile AT all… I would say with certainty it is not him.

    John, I was reviewing your blog on mabus,very well done. I attended
    PCC southwest campus in 76′ and met you briefly in the commons.
    I believe Mike Tibbets or George (with his St. Bernard) introduced us.
    Anyway, back on point. I live in Gays Mills, Wi. and on Oct. 5th, 7:20
    am we were walking our lab pup in the Crawford County fairgrounds
    and we just had walked through the stock pavilion headed West and
    the sky was a cloudless blue. Directly in front of us in the sky was
    the Obelisk as seen in Rome, London, and Wash.DC. It was solid white and perfectly shaped and full size. No vaportrails please. It
    vaporized very quickly after we reached the county gate. My wife
    and I know much of the dark cabal and their followers and they will
    be gone posthaste. Keep up your work, you the world a better place. Ron

    I am surprised Hogue, that people even buy your book, I think you are the rudest man alive. You do not take on board what people say you just reply cold and belittle people. I would say your personal life is not far from your proffesional, are you married?. If you are I doubt she is at all happy if you are not is it really a surprise?

    What an ugly letter.

    But good news, readers. Rebecca is rare. After she blasted the above comment off, she also reflected upon its ugliness and that it was uncalled for. I’m going to share her apologia with all of my readers, because that’s my price for accepting your apology, Rebecca, which I happily do accept.

    Here’s Rebecca’s apology. I hope that many of you who shoot ugly letters out first then ask questions why you were so rude, much later, though never apologizing for them, need to take this courageous letter in:

    Hi, My name is Rebecca, and I foolishly posted a comment on your website, which I feel quite bad about. It seemed that you were being rude to people taking the time too comment on your site. However I have realised that it is human nature to stick up for your beliefs or theorys, and if you feel someone is wrong you simply put them right!. I am not very clever and I do not absorb information very well (is it that obvious!) but I did enjoy your website and about your life I just wish I had read befor I judged you and sent a mean comment so I am very sorry I didnt mean it.

    Thank you, Rebecca. I accept your apology. You understand what happened. Just one clarification is needed, more for those reading this, so that all of you who are reading this are clear about my hits delivered to some of your comments. When I hit people like Harris, or “ORIGIN”, it isn’t because they attack my theories. In Harris’ case he was just offering interpretations. What I won’t stand for are attacks coming from people, like ORIGIN, that don’t read me, or interpretations offered, like from Harris, that clearly show he’s just spouting off an empty and uninformed opinion.

    I simply do not suffer that kind of foolishness of mind. If you want your opinions put in these comments page, do a little research. If you want to attack my theories, great. Have at it, but show me you have read my work. If you make an accusation, back it up with an example. If you are passing judgment on something I said, quote it, directly. And never presume to judge my work, or presume to know what I do in my private life, if you do so in utmost ignorance of knowing me personally or just skimming the surface of my life’s work.

    You are rare, Rebecca. I wish more people would step forward and heal the karma they have sewn. You all know who you are. Don’t do it for me. Do it for your souls. That’s ultimately what we are harming when we judge others out of prejudice and ignorance. These wounds hurled at others only cut at our souls.

    Even though Rebecca didn’t have the guts to apologize in the public comments page (I had to put her apologia there myself), I do appreciate you Rebecca for having the guts to write an apology at all. She’s one out of a thousand. Would any more of you like to step up?

      Wow, are you really that concerned with what Rebecca said that you felt it necessary to write an apology for her and post it for her, you’ve got some problems my friend. Guess your to smart for everybody right?

      Yes, it was necessary and it helps those readers who actually “read” what I said in response to Rebecca. I trust that most of my readers will read it and learn something. Maybe even you, Funk. Someday…

    YES BARACK OBAMA IS MABUS or (Man After B U S) H and ho much time is left????

    Basic rule of anagramming, Lisa. Do your acronyms in Latin, Greek or especially 16th century French. Do you anagram crunching in the languages Nostradamus knew. He didn’t speak or write in English.

    Maybe Mabus ( The U.S Ambasators) death is what triggers W.W III, but W.W.III will be caused by the hand of Obama because of course being president he has to do something about the death of the ambasator , and that is what i think is going to cause W.W.III .Of couse iam probably wrong,but i guess we will all see pretty soon.

    There is a common misunderstanding about Ambassador Stevens being the “Mabus” soon dying. For one thing he isn’t “Ambassador Mabus” as in Ray Mabus, the current Secretary of the Navy in the Obama administration that was President Clinton’s US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia in the mid-1990s. There is not connection to the prophecy.

    hi i dont know anything about this stuff.This is the first time i have even read about Nostradamus,but do u think maybe mabus could mean U.S Ambasator.You know it said mabus will die and thats when all the other thing start .I was just saying because of the ambasator that was killed the other day,and u know that is going to start alot of bad things.Anyways it was just something i was thinking about when i was reading this post .Thanks

    Read my answer in your second letter, Tina.

    Have you thought that because of all of this talk of him being the antichrist someone is going to try and kill him? Even though Nostradamus didn’t say that

    Who is “him”? And put a period at the end of your sentences. Can I at least expect that much effort from someone who claims to have studied nuclear physics? Cheesh!

    Incidentally look at Mabus in the mirror and what do you get
    sudam (hussein?). It could refer to the killing of Saddam Hussein. Simple as that which as we know has caused a lot of trouble.

    Well Andre, that makes you one of the last people on the planet to have discovered this. I’ve been writing about it since 1986! Clearly you don’t read my work before blurting out theories. Next you are going to share with us a new discovery that Dr. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was the Beatles in disguise.

    Nowhere does nostradamus say that Mabus is the antichrist. It just says Mabus dies. So it might be that he is assasinated and this has important consequences. Perhaps Mabus will even stand for president himself in the future. But certainly even now the killing of the head of the Navy would be very serious.

    Ignorance and shallow study know no bounds, Andre. It doesn’t just say “Mabus dies”. The quatrain says many things and leaves links to other quatrains to complete the story. The prophecies of 2 Q62 have word links that are clear to someone who looks deeper than just a skim of this subject like you have done. What do you know of 16th-century French, Andre? Or, the way Nostradamus uses words to hid clues?

      I agree, Andre. Even now the killing of the head of the Navy would be very serious.

    Yes, this seems to be a truth in the prediction because Ray Mabus is in a perfect position to be the guy.

    “MABUS” is also found in “Barack hUSsein obaMA”, who appointed Ray Mabus as Secretary of The Navy. Also, MABUS may relate to “U.S. ABM” (treaty), which George W. Bush ended while President. (a treaty can ‘die’, in a sense)… but still talking about the same general time-frame (about a decade). My thought is that Ray Mabus is the one (and just echoed in Obama’s name), and that he’s not really anything special, but will be noted in the news at the time he dies…and as such is a kind of time-marker for the other things (death of animals, humans, etc.) to come.

    The name “Obama” is pronounced “oubama” or “Ubama” in Africa. That gives us “maabu”. Follow Nostradamus’ law of anagram and replace one redundant letter with one new letter to finish the puzzle. Thus, “ma(a)bu” becomes “mabu”, becomes Mabu(s) becomes “Mabus.”

    In Nostradamus and the Antichrist, Code Named MABUS written in the spring of 2008, I predicted Ray Mabus would be a member of Obama’s cabinet a good nine months before Obama was elected president. Thus would begin all the talk once again that he is literally “Mabus” the third Antichrist of Nostradamus’ prophecies. Ray Mabus caused a lot of tongues to wag about this in the mid-1990s when he was President Clinton’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

    It is important not to be too easily seduced by the obvious when trying to decode Mabus. I suggest you, Stephen, and anyone reading this, explore my book on this matter. Cut and paste this link into your browser:

    Could well be. Nostradamus tended to ‘load’ his phrases.

    MABUS anagram could be ‘SUB MA’ or submarine.

    Comet could be passing and return of the comet when Osama BL was assassinated.

    The event by its description would need to be huge, one can only image a nuclear holocaust (from submarine-fired nuclear warheads perhaps?) or a major natural event.
