In Matthew 7:6, Jesus was remembered to have said, “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” (New International Version) Jesus tossed out that tidbit of information as part of the three-chapter remembrance of his “Sermon on the Mount.”
In the letter of Preface written as the introduction to Les Propheties of Nostradamus, he quoted that verse. Nostradamus wrote in Latin words (versus Old French), which was an indication that he was speaking in an orthodox religious voice. This is what he wrote (in French/Latin):
Considerant aussi la sentence du vray Sauveur : Nolite sanctum dare canibus , nec mittatis margaritas ante porcos , ne conculcent pedibus & conversi dirumpant vos.
That literally translates to state:
Considering also there decree of true Savior : Do not holy give to dogs , nor may you cast pearls before swine , lest they would trample down feet & they turned breaking off you.
While this appears to be a direct quote, the Latin Vulgate states this as:
nolite dare sanctum canibus neque mittatis margaritas vestras ante porcos ne forte conculcent eas pedibus suis et conversi disrumpant vos
Notice the absence of punctuation, with difference in the language. Nostradamus was not writing what he thought his Latin Bible had written about this verse. Nostradamus was writing what the voice of Jesus Christ (the original source of the quote) told him to write, exactly as he wrote it. The breakdown into four segments means each element of this was important to realize. The four segments state (with viable replacement words used):
Be unwilling sacred places to surrender dogs
Not may you release terms of endearment in front of pigs
in order not to they would disregard feet
& they recoiled shattering you.
Certainly, this is a strong statement against allowing evil people to gain control of Christianity [even when said during the times of the Temple evil ones]. The Temple had long been destroyed by the Romans, when Nostradamus wrote this. It says (metaphorically) the churches will be overrun by dogs and the people allowed to be hired as priests-pastors-preachers will be pigs. Their whole point and focus will be to keep anyone from carrying the message of an Apostle, which is the warning that not being reborn as Jesus Christ [the true Savior resurrected within one’s soul-being] means no eternal life. Anyone taking that message to the world [Nostradamus being one] would be destroyed, just as Jesus of Nazareth was crucified.
I believe anyone who takes a serious look at what Nostradamus wrote here will come up with the same opinion … unless one is a dog or a pig.
This means the whole point of this writing now is to ask, “Have you ever had a meaningful conversation with a dog or a pig?”
We all know the answer is “No.” Still, dogs might act like they know some stuff; but they don’t know anything.
Don’t be fooled by the dogs and pigs of the world. They only care for themselves. Do not trust your life (including soul) to anyone other than yourself.
And, for that to go anywhere worthwhile, you best figure out how to open your heart, mind, and soul to God.
