Interview on Election of Jesuit Pope – Walter Veith

Walter Veith’s insights on the new Jesuit Pope Francis I elected in March 13, 2013.

Is Pope Francis the last Pope

Petrus Romanus -Peter the Roman – The End

The Final Last Pope is Here –  Antichrist Rising 2013

( Saint Malachy (1094-1148)

This 12th century monk, St. Malachy’s said this. “In extreme persecution the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations. When they are over, the City of 7 Hills will be destroyed and the terrible or fearsome judge will judge his people. The END” ( Saint Malachy (1094-1148)

Martin Luther (1483-1546)

“We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist…personally I declare that I owe the Pope no other obedience than that to Antichrist.”  (Aug. 18, 1520) Taken from The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Vol. 2., pg. 121 by Froom.  (In response to a papal bull [official decree]): “I despise and attack it, as impious, false… It is Christ Himself who is condemned therein… I rejoice in having to bear such ills for the best of causes. Already I feel greater liberty in my heart; for at last I know that the pope is antichrist, and that his throne is that of Satan himself.”

Against the Execrable Bull of the Antichrist (excerpt)

Martin Luther’s Reply to the Papal Bull of Leo X
Source: Roland H. Bainton, Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther (Hendrickson Classic, 1950)(pp. 153-155).

I have heard that a bull against me has gone through the whole earth before it came to me, because being a daughter of darkness it feared the light of my face. For this reason and also because it condemns manifestly the Christian articles I had my doubts whether it really came from Rome and was not rather the progeny of that man of lies, dissimulation, errors, and heresy, that monster John Eck. The suspicion was further increased when it was said that Eck was the apostle of the bull. Indeed the sty1e and the spittle all point to Eck. True, it is not impossible that where Eck is the apostle there one should find the kingdom of Antichrist. Nevertheless in the meantime I will act as if I thought Leo not responsible, not that I may honor the Roman name, but because I do not consider myself worthy to suffer such high things for the truth of God. For who before God would be happier than Luther if he were condemned from so great and high a source for such manifest truth? But the cause seeks a worthier martyr. I with my sins merit other things. But whoever wrote this bull, he is Antichrist. I protest before God, our Lord Jesus, his sacred angels, and the whole world that with my whole heart I dissent from the damnation of this bull, that I curse and execrate it as sacrilege and blasphemy of Christ, God’s Son and our Lord. This be my recantation, Oh bull, thou daughter of bulls.

Having given my testimony I proceed to take up the bull. Peter said that you should give a reason for the faith that is in you, but this bull condemns me from its own word without any proof from Scripture, whereas I back up all my assertions from the Bible. I ask thee, ignorant Antichrist, dost thou think that with thy naked words thou canst prevail against the armor of Scripture? Hast thou learned this from Cologne and Louvain? If this is all it takes, just to say, “I dissent, I deny,” what foo1, what ass, what mole, what log could not condemn? Does not thy meretricious brow blush that with thine inane smoke thou withstandest the lightning of the divine Word? Why do we not believe the Turks? Why do we not admit the Jews? Why do we not honor the heretic if damning is all that it takes? But Luther, who is used to bellum, is not afraid of bullam . I can distinguish between inane paper and the omnipotent Word of God.

”– in a word, it is Satan and his Antichrist”

They show their ignorance and bad conscience by inventing the adverb “respectively.” My articles are called “respectively some heretical, some erroneous, some scandalous,” which is as much as to say, “We don’t know which are which.” 0h meticulous ignorance! I wish to be instructed, not respectively, but absolutely and certainly. I demand that they show absolutely, not respectively, distinctly and not confusedly, certainly and not probably, clearly and not obscurely, point by point and not in a lump, just what is heretical. Let them show where I am a heretic, or dry up their spittle. They say that some articles are heretical, some erroneous, some scandalous, some offensive. The implication is that those which are heretical are not erroneous, those which are erroneous are not scandalous, and those which are scandalous are not offensive. What then is this, to say that something is not heretica1, not scandalous, not false, but yet is offensive? So then, you impious and insensate papists, write soberly if you want to write. Whether this bull is by Eck or by the pope, it is the sum of all impiety, blasphemy, ignorance, impudence, hypocrisy, lying – in a word, it is Satan and his Antichrist.

Where are you now, most excellent Charles the Emperor, kings, and Christian princes? You were baptized into the name of Christ, and can you suffer these Tartar voices of Antichrist? Where are you, bishops? Where, doctors? Where are you who confess Christ? Woe to all who live in these times. The wrath of God is coming upon the papists, the enemies Of the cross of Christ, that all men should resist them. You then, Leo X, you cardinals and the rest of you at Rome, I tell you to your faces: “If this bull has come out in your name, then I will use the power which has been given me in baptism whereby I became a son of God and co-heir with Christ, established upon the rock against which the gates of hell cannot prevail. I call upon you to renounce your diabolical blasphemy and audacious impiety, and, if you will not, we shall all hold your seat as possessed and oppressed by Satan, the damned seat of Antichrist; in the name of Jesus Christ, whom you persecute. But my zea1 carries me away. I am not yet persuaded that the bull is by the pope but rather by that apostle of impiety, John Eck….

If anyone despises my fraternal warning, I am free from his blood in the last judgment. It is better that I should die a thousand times than that I should retract one syllable of the condemned articles. And as they excommunicated me for the sacrilege of heresy, so I excommunicate them in the name of the sacred truth of God. Christ will judge whose excommunication will stand. Amen.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

PAPACY was a kingdom of a different kind

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) is well known in history because of his scientific research, especially in connection with the laws of gravitation. He was a writer, mathematician, philosopher, and also a student of Bible prophecy. His writings on prophecy – from a study of 42 years – entitled ‘Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John’ was published six years after his death. Newton linked the little horn of Daniel 7 with the Papacy, rising among the ten kingdoms into which the Roman empire fell. “But it the PAPACY was a kingdom of a different kind from the other ten kingdoms… By its eyes it was a Seer; and by its mouth speaking great things and changing times and laws, it was a Prophet as well as a King. And such a Seer, a Prophet and a King, is the church of Rome. A Seer… is a  Bishop in the literal sense of the word;  and this Church PAPACY claims the universal Bishopric. With his mouth he PAPACY of Rome gives laws to kings and nations as an Oracle; and pretends to Infallibility, and that his dictates are binding to the whole world; which is to be a Prophet in the highest degree.” (Newton, ‘Observations on the Prophecies’, p.75).

Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)

The Pope: The Very Embodiment of the Antichrist — Charles Spurgeon

“It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the Popery in the Church of Rome, there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. . .It wounds Christ, because it robs Christ of His glory, because it puts sacramental efficacy in the place of His atonement and lifts a piece of bread into the place of the Savior and a few drops of water into the place of the Holy Spirit and puts a mere fallible man like ourselves up as the Vicar of Christ on earth. If we pray against it, because it is against Him, we shall love the persons though we hate their errors; we shall love their souls though we loathe and detest their dogmas. And so the breath of our prayers will be sweetened because we turn our faces toward Christ when we pray.” ( Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)

Pope Benedict XVI in shock resignation

Benedict XVI is to resign at the end of this month after nearly eight years as the head of the Catholic Church, saying he is too old to continue at the age of 85. The unexpected development – the first papal resignation in nearly 600 years – surprised governments, Vatican-watchers and even the his closest aides. The then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope after John Paul II’s death. The Vatican says it expects a new Pope to be elected before Easter…11 February 2013

St. Malachy Prophecy of Ireland

( Saint Malachy (1094 – 2 November 1148) was an Irish saint and Archbishop of Armagh, to whom were attributed several miracles and a vision of the identity of the last 111 Popes Prophecy of the Popes. He was the first Irish saint to be canonised by a pope. According to some sources Saint Malachy only foretold of 111 popes and the 112th was added by the Olivetian monks in order to not have their order associated with the last pope, the AntiChrist/False Prophet. That would indicate that this current pope is the last one

The most famous and best known prophecies about the popes are those attributed to St. Malachy, a medieval Irish priest and Kabbalist. According to written history, Malachy had the gift of healing to aid the sick. In addition, he reported possessed the powers of levitation and clairvoyance. He was also endowed with the gift of prophecy. Numerous miracles are attributed to his ministry.

Most important of all of his prophesies was one concerning the succession of the Popes—from Pope Innocent II (who became pontiff in 1140) to the pope who will follow John Paul II—the last Catholic pontiff. According to his prophecy, the line of popes will end, abruptly, with the next pope. He was described in the prophesies of St. Malachy as Gloria Olivae (the glory of the olive). During his reign, peace will descend over the Mideast. Historians believe that Malachy received his papal secession vision during his visit to Rome in 1140 for the coronation of Innocent II. Historians claim that Malachy gave the recorded vision to the new pontiff to “comfort him in his afflictions.” Innocent II placed the document in the papal archive where they remained for four centuries, read only by the curator of the library and other high-ranking church officials.

Those who believe Antichrist will be the Pope

Those Christians who believe Antichrist will be the Pope will see a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy in the Malachy Prophecy. The prophecy advances the secession of Roman Catholic pontiffs from Celestine II [1143 AD] to John Paul II’s successor. who will be revealed within the next 30 days) [2005 AD]. Malachy wrote that he was inscribing the pontiffs from Celestine II “…to the end of the world.” In a vision the Holy Spirit revealed each future pontiff by his character, geographic or physiological attributes, or his coat of arms. In all, Malachy described 111 popes.

However, in the 1820 printed version of Malachy’s prophesies, Lignum Vitre (written in 1559 by a Benedictine historian, Arnold Wyon), a 112th pope appears that was not in Malachy’s original manuscript. The 112th pope was added by the Olivetan monks. The Order of St. Benedict claims this final pope will come within the Benedictine Order, and that he was placed in the secession line because St. Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world, his Order will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its battle against evil (the Battle of Armageddon).

St. Benedict’s “prophecy” was more wishful thinking than it was spiritual insight from God. Although Malachy entrusted his vision to paper and gave the manuscript to Pope Innocent II for safe keeping, Father Claude Francois Menestrier, a famous 18th century Jesuit, claims the prophecies were actually written in 1590 by Cardinal Simoncelli to influence the election of the Cardinal of his choice as pontiff that year. The argument advanced by advocates who favor the later date is based on the whimsical notion that because Malachy never mentioned writing the papal ascension prophecy, he probably didn’t. Skeptics of that era felt its more likely that Cardinal Simoncelli wrote them. However, three simple facts suggest Menestrier was wrong, and that Malachy did write them.

First, Vatican records show that the document was entrusted to Innocent II in 1140. Like many other important Vatican documents, the Malachy Prophecy was one of the early documents printed on the Gutenberg Press in 1455—135 years before Cardinal Simoncelli supposed wrote them. Second, while the Malachy Prophecy was unknown outside the church hierarchy, printed copies of the prophecy were in circulation before 1590. And finally, third, Malachy’s Prophecy begins with the successor to Innocent II—Celestine II. Had Simoncelli wrote them, the Prophecy would have begun with one of three other Popes (since three pontiffs reigned that year).

First, the prophecy might have begun with Felice Peretti who was elected Pope Sixtus V on April 4, 1585. He died on Aug. 17, 1590. Succeeding him was Gambattista Castagna who was elected Pope Urban VII on Sept. 15, 1590. He was the shortest reigning pontiff in the history of the papacy —12 days. He died on Sept. 27, 1590. He was succeeded by Nicolo Spondrati who took the name Gregory XIV. Spondrati was elected on Dec. 5, 1590 and died on Oct. 5, 1591. The Prophecy would not have begun, by prophetic inference with a pope—Celestine II—who had been dead for 446 years if Simoncelli wrote the papal prophecy. He would have known that Guido Del Castello de Castellis became Pope Celestine II. Nor would there be any reason to mention the other popes and anti-popes in the line of succession between Celestine II and Sixtus V or Urban VII or Gregory XIV since there would be nothing prophetic about mentioning long dead pontiffs by prophetic inference when the writer would have possessed their names..

His rise to power in the Church was overshadowed

The future pontiffs were identified by a key event in the personal history of that pope or some other identifying attribute that was unique to that man. For example, Clement XIII who served as pontiff for 11 years between 1758 and 1769, had close ties with the Italian state of Umbria (whose State emblem was the rose). Malachy referred to him as the “Rosa Umbriae,” or the “Rose of Umbria.” Pius II—the second shortest reigning pontiff in the history of the Church was pope for only 26 days in 1503—was described in Malachy’s prophecy as “De Parvo Homine” (from a little man). His family name was Piccolomini—Italian for “little man.” Cardinal Giovanni Anngelico Braschi, the longest serving pope, was coroneted in 1755 and reigned until his death in 1799—44 years. He lived 82 years—serving as pontiff for over half his life. Contemporary Christian writers refer to Pius VI as the Apostolic Pilgrim on Earth. Malachy aptly described him as the pilgrim pope. In rare instances, as it was with Pius VII, it was the political circumstance under which he was coroneted. Pius VII—Barnaba Chiaramonte—was named a cardinal by Pope Pius VI in 1786. His rise to power in the Church was overshadowed by the rise in power of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Conclave of Cardinals elected him Pope in 1800. He died in 1823. His pontificate was symbolized by the eagle—the symbol by which Napoleon was known.

”a list…attributed to St. Malachy…has given fitting descriptions of every pope since the 16th century, when it was discovered” (Dupont, p.19).

”…the vast majority of Malachy’s predictions about successive Popes is amazingly accurate (Bander, Peter. Introductory commentary in The Prophecies of St. Malachy. TAN Books, Rockford” (IL), 1973, p. 11).

J.J. Dietzen (1983): According to the alleged predictions,only two popes remain after the present one {John- Paul II}, ending with Petrus Romanus (Peter of Rome) who is to preside over the destruction of Rome and the end of the present age. (Dietzen JJ.  The new Question box: Catholic life in the ’80s. Revised edition.  Guildhall, 1983, p. 65)

It should be understood that Malachy’s list includes several leaders that the Roman Catholics call antipopes (e.g. Clement VII, Benedict XIII, Alexander V, with Felix V the last antipope being resigning in 1449; see Bander, p. 54) and those are inserted sometimes together as opposed to always being in strict chronological order. The fact that Malachy’s list is NOT completely accurate as it has those considered legitimate and illegitmate pontiff “successors” should show people that the list was not truly inspired by God. But the list is accurate enough that it would seem that the coming False Prophet/Antipope will point to it as further “proof” that the final ecumenical Roman Catholic Church is the proper church.

Other Catholic prophecies about the Pope

Nun Emmerich (19th century): I also saw the Holy Father– God-fearing and prayerful. Nothing left to be desired in his appearance, but he was weakened by old age and by much suffering (Dupont Yves. Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement. TAN Books, Rockford (IL), 1973, p. 68).

Helen Wallraff (19th century): Some day a pope will flee from Rome in the company of only four cardinals . . . and they will come to Koeln [Cologne] (Dupont, p. 78).

The Prophecy of Premol (5th century): And I see the King of Rome and his Cross and his tiara, shaking the dust off of his shoes, and hastening his flight to other shores. Thy Church, O Lord, is torn apart by her own children. One camp is faithful to the fleeing Pontiff, the other is subject to the new government of Rome which has broken the tiara. But Almighty God will, in His mercy, put an end to this confusion and a new age will begin. Then, said the Spirit, this is the beginning of the End of Time.

Comment: From this prophecy, it is clear that the true Church will be faithful to the Pope in exile; whereas the new Pope in Rome will be, in fact, an anti-pope…a large number of Catholics will be misled into accepting the leadership of the anti-pope (Dupont, pp. 72-73). {Note the comment is from Yves Dupont personally}.

The above are interesting for many reasons, including the fact that the current pope is “weakened by old age and much suffering” and it would also seem logical that this German pontiff may wish to go to Cologne, Germany.

There are many reasons that people will be deceived at the time of the end (Matthew 24:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12)–and misunderstandings of the source of prophecies and their applicability will be part of that.

Pope Leo XIII [1878-1903]

Leo XIII [1878-1903]—He was described in the papal prophecy as “Lumen in Caelo” (Light in the Heavens). Real name: Gioacchio Vincenzo Raffaele. His coat of arms depicted a shooting star.

Pope Pius X [1903-1914]

Pope Pius X [1903-1914]—”Ignis Ardens” (Burning Fire). Real name: Giuseppe Melchiarre Sarto. It was during Sarto’s reign that Europe ignited in war, and like a brush fire, the flames of discontent spread from one nation to the next until finally, in 1914, war engulfed the entire continent.

Benedict XV [1914-22]

Benedict XV [1914-22] “Religio Depopulata” (Religion Devastated) Real name: Giacomo Della Chiesa. Benedict XV was known as the pope of war as the flames of discontent traversed the globe. But even more important, the godless, secular New World Order that will see the fulfillment of the prophesies in Revelation 13 (one world government), Revelation 17 (the one world church) and Revelation 18 (the one world economy) was born in 1920—during his reign.

Pope Pius XI [1922-1939]

Pope Pius XI [1922-1939]— “Fides Intrepida” (Unshaken Faith) Real name: Achilee Ratti. As pontiff, Ratti witnessed the world prepare for a sequel to the “war to end all wars.” He witnessed the birth of the abortion movement in Europe and the rise of atheistic secularism as it was taught to the world’s youths in the major colleges and universities of the world as globalists faced the challenge or evicting God from the minds of the citizens of the emerging New World Order.

Pope Pius XII [1939-1958]

Pope Pius XII [1939-1958]—”Pastor Angelicus” (Angelic Shepherd). Real name: Eugento Pacelli. Pacelli spent most of his early church career in the diplomatic service of the Vatican. From 1917 until 1929, he was Nuncio in Germany. In 1930 he became Vatican Secretary of State. He was a natural choice to follow Ratti into the papacy since there were no other church leaders experienced enough to deal with the Church, and with heads of State, during a global conflict. The publication of a myriad of Catholic Church documents between 1967 and 1990 confirm that, from his actions and secret papal decrees throughout the war years, Pius XII was, in the truest sense, the angelic pastor of his flock.

Pope John XXIII [1958-1963]

Pope John XXIII [1958-1963]—”Pastor et nauta” (Pastor and mariner) Real name: Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli. Roncalli spend several years as the apostolic delegate and Nuncio in Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria and France. Roncalli was named Archbishop of Areoplis (Rabbath and Moah) in Palestine around the birth of Israel in 1948. In 1953 Pope Pius XII named him as the Cardinal of Venice. He was viewed, at the time, as the most beloved of all modern popes. That was, of course, until the pontificating of Karol Wojtyla, the Polish prince of the church, John Paul II. Most historians believe Roncalli fulfilled the Malachy Prophecy as the “mariner” through his tenure in Venice, the water city. However, prophetically, when he became the Archbishop of Palestine, he could be construed as being “an evangelical mariner” since the lands of the Gentiles and Muslims are prophetically referred to as “the sea.”

Pope Paul VI [1953-1968]

Pope Paul VI [1953-1968]—”Flos Florum” (Flower of flowers). His reign as pontiff was relatively short—only five years. Real name: Giovanni Battista Montini. Like Pius XII he reached the zenith of power in the Catholic Church through the office of the Vatican Secretary of State. The Conclave of Cardinals elected him Pope in 1963. The coat of arms of the Montini family depicts three fleurs-de-lis.

Pope John Paul I [1978-1978 (34 days)]

Pope John Paul I [1978-1978 (34 days)]—”DeMedietate lunae” (of the half moon). Real name: Albino Buciani. Buciani served almost three times as long as Pope Urban VII, yet has the distinction of being the second shortest reigning pope. It was because of the briefness of his tenure that Wojtyla took the papal name, John Paul II. During the brief reign of John Paul I, the rise of Muslim extremism against the Gentile world exploded and OPEC (Oil Producing Exporting Countries) was born, and the Arabs began to use oil as a weapon against the industrial nations. The symbol of the Muslim world is the crescent—the half moon.

Pope John Paul II [1978-2005]

Pope John Paul II [1978-2005]—”De Lobaore solis” (Of the eclipse of the sun) Or, the phrase could also be interpreted as “from the toil of the sun.” John Paul II, the Polish Prince of the Catholic Church, has proven in death to be the most admired man in the world. Over 3 million people have traveled to Rome to pay their last respects to the fallen pontiff who mastered 8 languages but spoke 20 as he evangelized the world for Christ. Unlike most of the early Popes who came from the landed class of their time, Karol Wojtyla , like several of the modern day popes, came from the common working class and spend much time as a laborer in Poland, working under the hot, European sun. However, many other Popes could claim the same, thus the analogy “from the toil of the sun” does not appear to fit. Thus historians scrambled to examine how many solar eclipses took place during the reign of John Paul II.

In the two plus decades of John Paul II’s pontificate, there were 16 solar eclipses that were visible from southern Europe. But, there is too much ambiguity here because as you travel around the globe, 16 solar eclipses in one part of the world may be 9 solar eclipses, or 5, or 3, somewhere else. Or a total eclipse in my part of the country, or world, will likely be a partial eclipse in yours. The prophecy is much simpler than that. Karol Wojtyla was born on May 18, 1920 during a solar eclipse in Poland. On April 8. 2005 during the funeral services for the pontiff, the world will experience an unusual hybrid eclipse of the Sun. The central path of the eclipse will run across the South Pacific where it will change from an annular eclipse to a total eclipse, and then back to an annular eclipse again before it reaches South America. It will be seen as a partial eclipse in the southern United States. It was visible from southern California, swinging northward to New Jersey. No eclipse was visible north of that diagonal line. It would appear that the eclipse of the sun fits far better than “from the toll of the sun.”

I had previously read, in various articles and books, that the Malachy Prophecy specifically targeted the origin of the 110th pope as being from either Poland or Eastern Europe. Those reports are untrue. In reality as the Malachy Prophecy is carefully examined, it is accurate—to this point. There remains one pontiff in this prophecy. (If you add the Benedictine prophecy, described as Petrus Romanus, there are two. But, the Benedictine addition is not part of the original prophecy and, therefore, does not belong. The 111th Pope is described as Gloria Olivae (the glory of the olives).

There are a couple of palatably logical scenarios here. First, olives and olive branches denote peace. With the continuous strife in the Middle East—wars and rumors of war—and with Bible prophesy telling us that when Antichrist appears on the world he will arrange a peace so deceitfully alluring that the world will adore him. That’s one. The other? That our new pontiff might arise from a third world Muslim country—or that his roots are from the Middle East. There is one more. The Order of the Benedictines is also known as the “Olivetans.” St. Benedict prophesied that the last pope would be from that order. It is possible that God planned this in His own calculations, and that Gloria Olivae and not Petrus Romanus is the Olivetan priest. I guess in the upcoming days or weeks, we will learn the answer. An 865-year old prophecy will shortly come true—or prove to be a fraud. Up to this point, it has been deadly accurate. What are the odds, at this late date, that the balance of it proves to be wrong?

While you are mulling over the pros and cons of that question, here are a few other medieval prophecies dealing with our current age that might add some additional weight to the heaviness of the Malachy Prophecy—or give the skeptic cause to scoff.

One of the most striking prophesies, reminiscent of the recent tsunami and the earthquakes now following the Pacific “ring of fire” as hundreds of submerged volcanos becomes active, was made by St. Hildegard shortly before his death in the 12th Century, was this one: “The time is coming when princes and peoples will reject the authority of the Pope. Some countries will prefer their own Church rulers to the Pope. The German Empire will be divided. Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want and famine. The Great Nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged. That nation will have many misfortunes at sea and lose it colonies. After the great comet, the Great Nation will be devastated by earthquakes, storms and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed. All sea coast cities will be fearful, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in one of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God. A powerful wind will rise in the North, carrying heavy fog and the densest dust, and it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease in their butchery and be stricken with great fear.”

John of Vitiguerro, in the 13th century prophesied that “…The pope will change his residence and the Church will not be defended for 25 months because during all that time there will be no Pope in Rome. After many tribulations, a Pope shall be elected out of those who survived the persecutions.” A 14th century bishop, John of the Cleft Rock prophesied that “…Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem. At that time, the Pope and his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice.”

”There will come a great wonder…”

Before he died in 1878, Pope Pius IX uttered these words: “There will come a great wonder, which will fill the world with astonishment. This wonder will be preceded by the triumph of revolution. The Church will suffer exceedingly. Her servants and chieftains will be mocked, scourged, and martyred.” Prior to his prophecy, the Ecstatic of Tours uttered these prophetic words: “Before the war breaks out, food will become scarce and expensive. There will be little work for the workers, and fathers will hear their children crying for food. There will be earthquakes and signs in the sun. Toward the end, darkness will cover the Earth. When everyone believes that peace is ensured, when everyone least expects it, the Great Happening will begin.”

The last of these prophecies concerns the end of the world and is as follows: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven- hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.” It has been noticed concerning Petrus Romanus, who according to St. Malachy’s list is to be the last pope, that the prophecy does not say that no popes will intervene between him and his predecessor designated Gloria olivoe. It merely says that he is to be the last, so that we may suppose as many popes as we please before “Peter the Roman”. Cornelius a Lapide refers to this prophecy in his commentary “On the Gospel of St. John” (C. xvi) and “On the Apocalypse” (cc. xvii-xx), and he endeavours to calculate according to it the remaining years of time (Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913).

Hmm…if I didn’t know better, I might think that Matthew 24:5-30 was about to happen. Are you ready? If the Malachy Prophecy is true, we’d better all be.

Papal Resignation

Pope Benedict XVI announced he will resign from the papal office on Feb. 28, marking the first resignation of a pope in the Catholic Church in almost 600 years.

Benedict, who was elected in April 2005, announced on Monday that he will no longer lead the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. He is the first to resign from his position since Pope Gregory XII in 1415.

Pope Gregory XII in 1415 was the first to resign

”After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the barque of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me” (Pope Benedict XVI)

Like any secular monarch, the pope is elected for life — but that does not mean that it is impossible for a pope to step down while still alive. This is not a common occurrence because it would affect people’s perception of the stability of their church’s hierarchy and might set a precedent for church factions to pressure popes to resign; yet the possibility of a pope resigning is very real.

There are procedures for removing an incapacitated bishop. Should something happen to him, the diocese is declared as “impeded” and an auxiliary bishops takes over. Nothing like this exists in canon law for an incapacitated pope, even though he is also Bishop of Rome. The only provisions that exist for dealing with an incapacitated pope is to have a designated cardinal oversee the Vatican’s day-to-day operations.

What’s important to understand about the papacy is that the pope is far more important for who he is than for what he does. It is true that a pope does quite a lot, both in administrative matters and as a cleric, but he doesn’t actually have to take action in order to be pope. His importance as pope lies in being a symbol of Christian unity. Thus, as long as he is breathing, he continues to fulfill some of the primary duties of his office.

Typically when we read about papal resignations, media “experts” tell us that the only pope to ever resign was Celestine V in 1294. This is untrue in many ways: Celestine was not first pope to resign, nor was he the last. Celestine is, however, the pope who created the official procedure by which a pope can resign, so singling him out is somewhat justified.

The ability of a pope to resign was made official by Pope Boniface VIII who placed by decree into canon law:

Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope

Thomas Horn is an internationally recognized lecturer, radio host and bestselling author of several books including his newest books, Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here. He is a well-known columnist who has been interviewed by US Congressmen and Senators on his findings as well as featured repeatedly in major media. Thomas received the highest degree honorary doctorate bestowed in 2007 from legendary professor Dr. I.D.E. Thomas for his research into ancient history. He returns to Red Ice to discuss Petrus Romanus. For more than 800 years scholars have pointed to the dark augury having to do with “the last Pope.”

The prophecy, taken from St. Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes,” is among a list of verses predicting each of the Roman Catholic popes from Pope Celestine II to the final pope, “Peter the Roman,” whose reign would end in the destruction of Rome. St. Malachy’s list heralds the beginning of “great apostasy” followed by “great tribulation” sets the stage for the imminent unfolding of apocalyptic events. According to this prophecy, the next Pope will be a false prophet who leads the world’s religious communities into embracing a political leader known as Antichrist.

Excerpt from  Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope

On this order, the man who in 2002 correctly predicted that the pope succeeding John Paul II would be named Benedict XVI, Ronald L. Conte Jr., believes the next pope will be Cardinal [redacted] and that he will take the name Pius XIII. This name (Pius) is associated historically with Popes who emphasized authoritative doctrine during their Pontificates. Cardinal [redacted] fits this description, and Conte interprets this qualification as best fulfilling “Peter the Roman” as a pope who “will reaffirm the authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Church; this authority is based on his place as a Successor of Peter” and “will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Roman Catholic Church above all other religions and denominations, and its authority over all Christians and all peoples of the world.” To this, Conte adds, “During the reign of Pope Peter the Roman, the great apostasy begins” and this pope will mark “the first part of the tribulation, during our generation.” I] Conte envisions this apocalypse beginning in 2012 when, as he sees it, Benedict suddenly dies or steps down and is replaced by Petrus Romanus. This is followed by a series of cascading events resulting in World War III, which is triggered when Iranian backed terrorists explode a nuclear bomb in New York City. The Great Tribulation begins, and by July 2013, Rome is destroyed when it is struck by a nuclear missile.

Elsewhere in this book we have meticulously investigated a French codex entitled, La Mystérieuse Prophétie des Papes (“The Mysterious Prophecy of the Popes”), issued in 1951 by a Jesuit priest and mathematician named René Thibaut (1883–1952). Among his astonishing findings—hidden to the modern world until the publishing of our work—Thibaut found concealed in the Prophecy of the Popes a clever number of word plays that form many acrostics and anagrams. An example of one of the linguistic codes may hold cryptic agreement with Ronald L. Conte’s conclusion that Petrus Romanus will take the name Pius.

The code is discovered in the Latin text “Peregrinus apostolicus” which was the prophecy for the ninety-sixth pope on the list, Pius VI. The anagram not only reveals the papal name, it does so twice: PeregIinUS aPostolIcUS. This appearance of the name “Pius” is rather astounding considering we have a published copy dated almost two hundred years before Pius VI was elected. But Thibaut suggests the repetition serves as an even farther-reaching poetic refrain. In other words, “Pius! Pius!” is similar to the excited binary “Mayday, Mayday!” that sailors cry out in dire circumstances and that may have prophetic implications concerning the name of the final Pope on the list.

In addition to being associated with Roman authoritarianism and cryptogramed in the Prophecy of the Popes, Conte bolsters his prognostication concerning the name “Pius” by pointing to the electrifying visions of another Pope named Pius—Pope Pius X who served as Pope from 1903 to 1914 and who saw a Papal successor carrying the same name Pius fleeing Rome over the bodies of dead priests at the onset of the end times. Pius X is widely reported to have said:

What I have seen is terrifying! Will I be the one, or will it be a successor? What is certain is that the Pope will leave Rome and, in leaving the Vatican, he will have to pass over the dead bodies of his priests! Do not tell anyone this while I am alive.[v]

In a second vision during an audience with the Franciscan order in 1909, Pope Pius X appeared to fall into a trance. After a few moments, he opened his eyes and rose to his feet, announcing:

I have seen one of my successors, of the same name [a future pope named Pius], who was fleeing over the dead bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in some hiding place; but after a brief respite, he will die a cruel death. Respect for God has disappeared from human hearts. They wish to efface even God’s memory. This perversity is nothing less than the beginning of the last days of the world.[vi]

The third part of the Secret of Fatima, which was supposedly released in total by the Vatican June 26, 2000, seems to echo the visions of Pius X. A section of the material reads:

[vii]

The conceptual framework of these visions and their validity is volatile among many Catholics who believe Rome is complicit in an intentional cover-up involving the true Third Secret of Fatima as well as other suppressed catholic foresights that are rife with wildly different predictions concerning the future prophetic role of the Roman Catholic Church.

Marian apparitions, visions by Popes, interpretations by Cardinals of the apocalypse and approved mystical prophecies often stand at odds with recent Vatican publications. Even the “Catechism of the Catholic Church” approved by the Church and promulgated by Pope John Paul II (released in English in 1994, the first catechism in more than 400 years), which draws on the Bible, the Mass, the sacraments, traditions, teachings, and the lives of the saints, states under the section The Church’s Ultimate Trial:

675 Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the mystery of iniquity in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the Truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in the place of God and his Messiah who has come in the flesh. [viii]

Possibly at the center of this prophecy and a “Vatican cover-up” of the complete vision of Fatima (and related prophecies) is a second and potentially more powerful papal contender for the role of Petrus Romanus

The Prophecy Series: The Final Pope – Peter the Roman

“About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamour and opposition.” – Sir Isaac Newton.

I’m not going to start this series off with Biblical Prophecy, and there’s a lot of that to come. Rather I’m going to start with a more recent prophecy many are not aware of.

Although I am hesitant to provide anything out of scripture, there is something about these prophecies which speak volumes for the times which we are in, and state that we see the world in. There are thing which are happening which the blind and the hopeless cannot see but those who are saved by the wonderful hope in Jesus – The Lord, the Father and the Almighty King of Truth, Love and Forgiveness – can.

St Malachy was born in Armagh in 1094. According to the traditional account, in 1139, Malachy was summoned to Rome by Pope Innocent II. While in Rome, Malachy purportedly experienced a vision of future and past popes, which he recorded as a sequence of cryptic phrases. This manuscript was then deposited in the Roman Archive, and thereafter forgotten about until its rediscovery in 1590.

“The Prophecy of the Popes” by St. Malachy is a list of 112 short phrases in Latin.  They detail both popes and anti-popes from 1143AD to the current day. Of course there is always the veil of lies which surround these things, anything to detract attention from the Truth. That is how the enemy operates.There has been some concern about the accuracy of the Prophecy, but, because it is not biblical it is largely disregarded. Little did they know that Joseph Ratzinger would choose the order of St. Benedict whose Crest is an Olive Branch.

St. Malachy prophesied 74 popes before him and 38 popes after him. According to the Prophecy, the last pope is the next one. And it says this: In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End

(The seven hilled city is either Rome or Jerusalem)

There are many different theories about the final pope but the point I am trying to make is that this is the End.

Ratzinger is old, sick and the first ever pope speaking of resignation, due to the butler scandal with his documents.

Besides Malachy, Popes themselves have made prophecies:

• Pope Pius IX (1846-78): “There will come a great wonder, which will fill the world with astonishment. This wonder will be preceded by the triumph of revolution. The church will suffer exceedingly. Her servants and her chieftain will be mocked, scourged, and martyred.”

We have seen revolution all over the Middle East

• Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903): After saying Mass on October 13, 1884, the Pope suddenly collapsed. Upon waking, he recounted a vision he had seen. “Oh, what a horrible picture I was permitted to see!” he said. He described a period of about 100 years when Satan’s power was to reach its maximum, a decline of moral and spiritual values. Those hundred years would have included most of the 20th century.

(We have seen scandal, sexual perversion, paedophilia, and the the desecration of the sanctity of marriage)

• Pope Pius X (1903-14): This Pope had a number of prophetic visions. In 1909, in the midst of an audience with members of the Franciscan order, he seemed to fall into a trance. Moments passed, then his eyes sprung open and he jumped to his feet. “What I have seen is terrifying!” he cried out. “Will I be the one, or will it be a successor? What is certain is that the Pope will leave Rome and, in leaving the Vatican, he will have to pass over the dead bodies of his priests!” It’s uncertain what this vision alluded to, but it is similar in many respects to the reported third prophecy of Fatima. Later, shortly before his death, another vision came to him: “I have seen one of my successors, of the same name, who was fleeing over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in some hiding place; but after a brief respite, he will die a cruel death. Respect for God has disappeared from human hearts. They wish to efface even God’s memory. This perversity is nothing less than the beginning of the last days of the world.”

Atheism

• Pope Pius XII (1939-58) also experienced strange visions of a bleak future. After one of these experiences he told confidants, “Mankind must prepare itself for sufferings such as it has never before experienced… the darkest since the deluge.”

It is important to note that the general theme here is suffering for Christians and we must expect this. But with the great assurance that our time will come when we are at the hand of the Father and beneath him, our enemies, are his footstool….

Will the Black  Pope be the Last one?

The last pope might be involved with the Antichrist, but our signs that this age is near an end doesn’t lie with Saint Malachy’s prophecies; it lies with what scripture has told us. According to the Roman Catholic church, ALL of these men are mis-interpreting prophecy?

Before the Reformation, this is what most Preachers taught regarding Antichrist

Israel Reaches Historic Agreement with Vatican

In the book, Petrus Romanus, published last Spring commented on the Vatican’s ambition to get a foothold in Jerusalem. We wrote about an obscure under the table deal concerning the Hall of the Last Supper on Mount Zion, only one journalist that I am aware of, Giulio Meotti, was even mentioning it:

While the papal power play is likely to progress by the time this book returns from the printer, on February 4, 2012, an op-ed piece ran on the Israeli news site Ynet News titled, “Don’t Bow to the Vatican.” The editorial by Italian journalist Giulio Meotti opposes the Vatican’s designs on Jerusalem, and speaks in the past tense referencing the sovereignty over the Cenacle (which houses the Hall of the Last Supper and King David’s tomb):

Don’t Bow to the Vatican

Israel reached an historical agreement with the Vatican to give up some sort of sovereignty over the “Hall of the Last Supper” on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. The Vatican will now have a foothold at the site: Israel agreed to give the Vatican first priority in leasing opportunities and access to it.

If our thesis that the next pope is the biblical false prophet is correct, then establishing a foothold in Jerusalem is an essential piece of the puzzle. Almost a year had passed with media silence on the issue… that is until today, now we can consider it accomplished:

A historical agreement has been signed between Israel and the Vatican, ending a 20 year dispute. Israel has granted the pope an official seat in the room where the Last Supper is believed to have taken place, on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.

As this book goes off to the printer we have not been able to verify the past-tense phrasing “Israel reached an historical agreement with the Vatican” with a concrete piece of documentation, but it appears that the Vatican has reached its long-sought goal of sovereignty over at least one site on Mount Zion. (Petrus Romanus p. 385-386)

World leaders and leading figures

World leaders and leading figures in the Catholic Church expressed their surprise at Pope Benedict XVI’s decision to resign while affirming their admiration for his work as pope.

President Obama

“On behalf of Americans everywhere, Michelle and I wish to extend our appreciation and prayers to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI,” said President Obama in a statement. “Michelle and I warmly remember our meeting with the Holy Father in 2009, and I have appreciated our work together over these last four years. The church plays a critical role in the United States and the world, and I wish the best to those who will soon gather to choose His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI’ ssuccessor.”

Statement From Archbishop Vincent Nichols, Leader of the Archdiocese of Westminster and Head of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales:

“Pope Benedict’s announcement today has shocked and surprised everyone. Yet, on reflection, I am sure that many will recognize it to be a decision of great courage, and [showing] characteristic clarity of mind and action. The Holy Father recognizes the challenges facing the church, and that ‘strength of mind and body are necessary’ for his tasks of governing the church and proclaiming the Gospel. I salute his courage and his decision.

“I ask people of faith to keep Pope Benedict in their prayers. We Catholics will do so, with great affection and the highest esteem for his ministry as our Holy Father remembering with joy his visit to the United Kingdom in 2010. Pray, too, for the church and all the steps that must take place in the next weeks. We entrust ourselves to the loving Providence of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.”

Statement from Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper:

“Laureen and I were shocked early this morning to learn that declining health had prompted His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI to renounce his office.

“His Holiness has dedicated his life to serving God and his faith. He has been a faithful steward, and will be missed.

“A renowned scholar and theologian, Pope Benedict will always have a special place in the hearts of Canadians. It was during his papacy that two of our own, Saint Brother André Bessette and Saint Kateri Tekakwitha were canonized and Archbishop Thomas Collins of Toronto was elevated to the College of Cardinals.

“In 2009 my family and I were honoured to have an audience with this deeply spiritual man and to hear his words of faith, hope and charity. Laureen and I join all Canadians in wishing Pope Benedict well in the future.”

Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C., Speaking From His Residence:

“My first reaction was this is … very startling. I was totally unprepared for it. The second reaction was we’re going to have to now think a little differently. This will be the first time in modern history that we’ve had a pope resign. How do we work with all of that? And how do we face the reality now of moving on in a new situation where we will have a former pope, a retired pope?

“It’s a sign of the great humility. This pope and his love of the church and his courage to recognize as he says in his declaration that he has come to the conclusion that he doesn’t have the energy, the physical energy any longer to discharge his duties as pope.

“That recognition says to me he is a very humble and honest person, and his love for the church is such that he has concluded it would be better not to try to lead this huge flock without the full strength of all of his energies.”

Statement from U.S. House Speaker John Boehner:

“The prayers and gratitude of American Catholics are with Pope Benedict XVI today. The Holy Father’s decision displays extraordinary humility and love for the Church, two things that have been the hallmarks of his service. Americans were inspired by his visit to the United States in 2008, and by his quiet, steady leadership of the church in uncertain times. People of all nations have been blessed by the sacrifices he has made to sow the seeds of hope, justice and compassion throughout the world in the name of Our Lord and Savior.”

Statement from the Prime Minister of Ireland, Enda Kenny:

“On behalf of the Government and people of Ireland, I would like to extend best wishes to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI following his declaration today that he intends to step down from his office.

This is clearly a decision which the Holy Father has taken following careful consideration and deep prayer and reflection.

It reflects his profound sense of duty to the Church, and also his deep appreciation of the unique pressures of spiritual leadership in the modern world.

This is a historic day in the life of the Catholic Church and for the many millions of Catholics, both here in Ireland and around the world.

Pope Benedict has given strong leadership and great service to the Church and her people for many decades.

I know that all of their thoughts and prayers will be with the Holy Father at this time, and also with those who will shortly gather in Conclave to choose his successor.”

Statement From Detroit Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron:

“Like most of my fellow Catholics, I woke this morning to the very surprising news that Our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI is resigning his service as the successor of St. Peter. Quickly after the surprise followed sadness, a sense of grief at losing his fatherly care for all us, bishops, clergy and faithful. We have come to love him very much and will miss him.

“Most of us know in our own personal lives what it means to see a parent grow old and decline in ability. That is the sense we bring to this announcement. Our spiritual father has determined, by the best light given to him in prayer, that for the good of us all he must lay down his office.

“It was with the support of our daily prayers that Pope Benedict passed his years in the Chair of Peter and has come to this point. I invite all Catholics to pray all the more ardently for the Holy Father Pope Benedict, that God sustain him in these last weeks of his papacy and guide him through what lies ahead. And we look to the future with confidence, that the Lord who has given us this great pope and loving father, will give us a new shepherd of equal merit.”

Statement from Catholics United Executive Director James Salt:

“Today’s surprising announcement from Pope Benedict XVI is a sign of humility from the aging Holy Father. In light of his decision, we must take the opportunity to reflect on the challenges of this papacy. To many, the Catholic church hierarchy has been seen as an institution overly focused on issues of human sexuality, such as opposition to access to birth control and marriage equality, rather than first serving the poor as Christ commanded.

“The next pope has a unique opportunity to radically shift the agenda of the church. Increasingly, the Catholic church is one that represents interests far removed from Europe or North America. The cardinals can and should consider opening their horizons toward a successor from the global south, such as Latin America or Africa, whose experience represents a vastly different worldview than many church leaders.

“Catholics know the heavy burden of the papacy is wrought with challenges. The next pope will have to face the greatest moral challenge of our day: the imminent threat of global climate change and its effect on the poorest. He must protect and expand equality and the role of women and those affected by oppression. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, he must dedicate himself to protecting the least among us, especially children, who have been affected by the shameful scourge of abuse.

“We pray the next pope has the wisdom to lead us in a bold direction toward hope and unity, and away from oppression and division.”

We are living in the end times

We are living in the end times and it is certainly possible that the next pope will be the final Antichrist.

Why?

Because we are nearly finished with the 6,000 years that God has given humankind to rule itself. The idea that God Had a 6,000 year plan was a common belief in the first few centuries of Christendom, and is still held by groups such as the Continuing Church of God; and was even held by some in the Church of Rome in the 20th century (for details, please see Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?).  Biblical chronology suggests that this 6,000 years is nearly over.

So, it is possible that the next pope will be the antipope of Catholic prophecies and the final Antichrist of biblical prophecies.  We are living in the last days.
