It’s always important not to base prophetic understanding upon visions outside of the Bible, even when they come from godly individuals. Our prophetic understanding must come from the revelation of the Biblical prophets.
On February 11, 2013, Pope Benedict shocked the world by announcing his intention to resign from the papacy. This was the first resignation of a pope while in office in over 600 years. Benedict said that, at the age of 85, he no longer had the strength to execute the duties of leading the Roman Catholic Church.
It was time to elect the 112 pope foretold in the vision of St. Malachy!The prophecies of the Irish Saint Malachy, the 12th century bishop of Armagh, have thrilled and dismayed readers for centuries. The final prediction in full is:
“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.”
He has stated there would be only one more pope after Benedict.
On March 13, 2013, overlooking St. Peter’s Square, the announcement was made that Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina had been elected pope.The shock lies in the fact that Jorge picked the name, Pope Francis, whose real name is, Giovanni di Pietro [or Peter]. Not only that but the word “Roman” implies that the pope must be of Italian decent. His father was an Italian who moved to Argentina. He was 76 years of age when elected pope and chose to take the name Pope Francis for his papal name. Francis is the first non-European pope and the first pope ever elected from the Jesuit order.One of the original purposes of the Jesuits was to stem the tide of the reformation. Pope Francis is a strong proponent of “social justice”, which is simply a politically correct term for socialism.
If you type “is Pope Francis antichrist” into Google, you’ll get about 425,000 results in .37 seconds. By way of comparison, if you ask Google the same question about Pope Benedict you only get 137,000 and it takes a little longer—.47 seconds. In no way do I propose that the Pope is the antichrist, yet I do propose that he is the False prophet. Here is why:
Francis has been vocal about the evils of capitalism while backing off conservative views about homosexuals, asking, “Who am I to judge?” He’s even called for a New World Order more than once. Some predict he will usher in this New World Order on Sept. 25, just 10 days after the end of the Shemitah year, which has a swirl of speculation about economic collapse around it.
Meanwhile, Francis has warmed up to Islam like no other pope before him. In a historic first, Francis opened the door to Muslim prayers and Quran readings at the Vatican last year. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres joined the pontiff in the Vatican gardens for a prayer meeting.(http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/watchman-on-the-wall/50752-why-so-many-people-think-pope-francis-is-the-antichrist)
2014/Year of Peace
The two doves released by the Pope Francis on 26 January 2014, a year after Pope Benediction fiasco, were Both attacked. One by a seagull and the other by a black crow!
Levitikus 11 : Avoid the Unclean
13‘These, moreover, you shall detest among the birds; they are abhorrent, not to be eaten: the eagle and the vulture and the buzzard, 14and the kite and the falcon in its kind, 15every raven (crow, rook etc) in its kind, 16and the ostrich and the owl and the sea gull and the hawk in its kind,17and the little owl and the cormorant and the great owl, 18and the white owl and the pelican and the carrion vulture,19and the stork, the heron in its kinds, and the hoopoe, and the bat.
2015/Year of Light (Light-bearer?)
The Vatican made front news earlier this month when José Gabriel Funes, an Argentine Jesuit priest and astronomer, and the current director of the Vatican Observatory, sponsored a major conference in collaboration with NASA entitled The Search for Life Beyond the Solar System: Exoplanets, Biosignatures & Instruments and announced the purchase of a new 2 M$ lens for its Lucifer 2 Large Binocular Telescope.
The Vatican participated in another 2014 conference in Arizona which again talked about the implications on mankind when we discover life exists in the universe other than Earth. We’ve come a long way from the days of Galileo’s persecution. They’ve been one of the first religions to embrace the future possibility.
It seems minor, but – the actual term used in the Greek Septuagint version of Isaiah 14:12 (given that there is no ONE way of accurately transliterating) is Eo(u)s phoros, morning star/DAWN god of lightt
The actual name, “Lucifer,” goes back to the Greeks, before the Romans. Socrates and Plato talk about this”god of light”; surprisingly, not in the context of Eos (god of Dawn), but — as a morning star — juxtaposed with the sun (Helios) and Hermes. This information can be found in Plato’sTimaeus (38e) and in Edith Hamilton’s Mythology.”author of The Polytheism Of The Bible And The Mystery Of Lucifer, F.T. DeAngelis
Part of a prayer called theExsultet, prayed each year at the Easter Vigil to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. During the lighting of the Easter candle, the popes pray:

Revelation 13 : 16And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name
Revelation 18 :2And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. 3“For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”
The Beast from the Earth
Revelation 13 11Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon.
12He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence.
- And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.
- 13He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.
- 14And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life.
- 15And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak
- and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
- 16And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,
- 17and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.
ZECHARIAH 17Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
Matthew 7 : A Tree and its Fruit
15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neithercan a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22Many will say to me in that day,
- Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
- and in thy name have cast out devils?
- and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Luke 6 :A Tree and its Fruit
43For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 44For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
