On February 11th 2013 the Pope announced that he was resigning as of February 28, 2013. A pope resigning…This hasn’t happened in 600 years.
Quickly, as soon as this announcement was made – people brought up the 900 year old prophecies of St. Malachy.
St. Malachy at the time of his prophetic vision was an Irish bishop. He died in 1148 A.D. At his death he left behind a prophetic list of all future popes beginning in 1143 (Current Pope during his lifetime). In his prophecy, Malachy included a single line identifying a characteristic of each pope. Malachy’s prediction – listed just 112 popes – up to now, his prophecy has been amazingly accurate. According to his list, the next pope will be the last Pope meaning the next Pope will be the one who will help usher in the New World Order and the Tribulation. Malachy said the last Pope will be “Peter the Roman” He wrote…
“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, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge the people. The End.”
While in Rome, in 1139, Saint Malachy is said to have gone into a trance and received a vision in which he foresaw all the popes from the death of Innocent II until the end of time. What do you think of this?
I can’t say amen to it because I can’t back these prophecies with Scripture.
I can, through scripture, see events that will happen in the end times.
What I find as interesting as St Malachy prophecies is the position the Vatican has taken over the last 15 months.
In October 2011, the Pope’s council for Justice and Peace called for radical reform of the world’s financial systems, including the creation of a global political authority to manage the economy and an overhaul of the world’s financial systems, creating a World central Bank, leading to a one world currency.
In December of 2011 the Pope’s council for Justice and Peace called for a global world health organization. I find the Vatican’s “global” mindset just as fascinating as St. Malachy’s predictions!
Just an FYI, The president of the Vatican’s council for Justice and Peace, which is promoting global, one world ideas, is Cardinal Peter Turkson, who is in the running to be the next Pope and would fit the prophecy of Malachy as “Peter the Roman”.
With the Vatican moving in a one world direction we also have nations like North Korea test firing nuclear weapons (doing so on behalf of Iran????)
On Tuesday Feb. 12th North Korea conducted its third nuclear test in defiance of U.N. resolutions.
Reuters reports. “North Korea said the test had ‘greater explosive force’ than those it conducted in 2006 and 2009. N. Korea news agency said it had used a ‘miniaturized’ and lighter nuclear device, indicating it had again used plutonium, which is suitable for use as a missile warhead.”
U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called North Korea a “rogue state” whose nuclear weapons program poses a “serious threat” to U.S. national security.
The New York Times reports: another disturbing possibility is that the Iranians may be paying the North Koreans to test nuclear warheads for them, and transferring the data to Tehran to help Iran further accelerate their bid for The Bomb.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran is shortening by one-third the time it will take to produce ‘one nuclear bomb’. Remember last fall Prime Minister Netanyahu believed Iran would cross that “Nuclear Red-line” by 2013.
If the pressure for a one world system isn’t enough, adding the tensions from North Korea and Iran and the Nuclear threat, China now is also causing tensions by threatening to attack Japan.
- The two nations are in a battle for control over 5 islands.
- China is saying these islands have been part of its territory since ancient times, and they serve as important fishing grounds
- Japan is saying 3 of these islands were owned by a Japanese business man who sold them to Japan.
The Pope resigning, Nukes being tested and China threatening war with Japan…
“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”
MARANATHA – Come Lord Jesus!
