In the Bible all predictions are for the coming of prophets and the desolation of the land
At the end of the Bible Saint John predicted by dreams the end of the actual world.
3- Special prediction era
In the middle age era predictions became more specific and regional
Nostradamus and others predicted more specific events that could effect their surroundings and the contries they know.
Nostradamus by putting with our without intention twisted names and dates in his predictions became the first predictor that could be interpreted specifically,could it be true or not, on every event,even for some coming generations.
Modern predictors tend to be even more specific and local .
