Most of our readers will blanche at the very idea that God would ever allow the demonic host to actually make a prophecy which would come true. Not understanding the complex, multi-faceted Nature and Purposes of God, Christians will assume that only God can utter a prophecy which will come true.
Not only does the Bible teach that God does allow the demonic host limited prophetic foreknowledge, but our thorough study of the occult going back many centuries has revealed that the demons guiding human leaders in this drive to the New World Order have already exhibited the truth that they do have foreknowledge that can span at least several centuries. For example, in 1870, occult Freemason leader, Albert Pike, received a vision from his guiding spirit telling him that three (3) world wars would be necessary to produce Antichrist. The first two world wars occurred just as this demonic vision foretold, while the stage for the Third World War is being carefully set now, in your Daily News, following the precise guidelines of this demonic prophecy -- given 135 years ago now (Read NEWS1056).
Before we go any further, let us examine the Biblical truth that God does allow the demonic host to have limited prophetic foreknowledge, which He further allows them to publicize. Listen carefully and have your Bibles ready to double check our teachings.
"If a prophet arises among you, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder he foretells to you comes to pass..." (Deuteronomy 13:1-2a; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
This Scripture proves that demons have limited foreknowledge. Sometimes God allows them to give accurate 'words of prophecy' for the express purpose of testing people to see if they will adhere to God's warning. Notice that this Scripture says that "the sign or the wonder he foretells to you" can really come to pass! They really can! Undiscerning people never stop to think that Satan might want to use fulfilled prophecy to further deceive the people into following him, thinking they are following God!
These same undiscerning people also never stop to think that God may allow such fulfilled prophecy in order to test the people. The rest of this passage reveals this staggering truth.
"... and if he says, Let us go after other gods--gods you have not known--and let us serve them, You shall not listen to the words of that prophet or to that dreamer of dreams. For the Lord your God is testing you ..." [Deuteronomy 13:2a-3; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
The vast majority of people in the world today have a tragic pragmatic approach to visions and to fulfilled prophecy. They somehow believe that if they can sense a vision with one of their five physical senses, the vision must be real and must be from God; they never stop to consider the warning from the Apostle Paul that Satan and his ministers can appear as angels of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) , in order to deceive the sons of man.
Further, these undiscerning people believe that, if a prophecy is fulfilled, that prophecy must be from God, never stopping to consider the warning, above, that God sometimes allows Satan and/or his demonic host to utter prophecy which will come true. Why does God allow this to occur? As this passage, above, states, God is sending His people a test, to see if they will live their lives according to His commandments, or according to their physical senses. In this passage, a false prophet utters a prophecy which includes the instruction to worship other Gods; since the real God has already instructed the Hebrews to never worship another god, this "fulfilled prophetic utterance" instructs the people to do something God has already told them never to do.
Therefore, the people are under a test. Do they follow a false religious prophet, just because what he has prophesied has come to pass? Or do they adhere to God's commandment already given and refuse to listen to this false religious leader, ignoring his fulfilled prophecy?
The End of the Age is full of just such tests. Time and again, prophetic Scripture warns God's people to hold fast, to not be deceived by either false political leaders or false religious leaders, even though they may show great signs and wonders. (Matthew 24:24)
We know from the mouth of the Illuminati, that the Roman Catholic Pope is slated to be the False Prophet of Revelation 13:11-18 (NEWS1052 and NEWS1285). Therefore, we know that, when the False Prophet Pope stands before mankind, he will utter fantastic prophecies, many of which will come true. Further, we realize that the reason the Illuminati has chosen the Pope to be their False Prophet is because he comes out of a system already steeped in White and Black Magic Witchcraft, a system which has been groomed for centuries to religiously serve Antichrist.
Therefore, today, we are going to examine one instance where an ancient Roman Catholic prophecy concerning the number and succession of popes is apparently coming true. Since this prophecy was uttered by a Catholic visionary in 1139 A.D., every pope in succession has fulfilled the substance prophesied of his Papacy, including (especially) John Paul II.
Let us review this Catholic prophecy now.
PROPHECY OF ST. MALACHY
NEWS BRIEF: "Saint's Prophecy: Only Two Popes Remain", Rapture Ready News, April 4, 2005
"When the cardinals of the world pick John Paul II's successor, they may well be choosing the next-to-last pope. The pope who then follows this choice in the Chair of St. Peter will be the last pope, and after his reign Rome will be destroyed. Such has been the prophecy of St. Malachy, an Irish bishop who at his death in 1148 A.D. was discovered to have left behind a prophetic list of all future popes beginning with Pope Celestine II, whose papacy began in 1143 A.D."
"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. Afterward he wrote a few words about each pope and gave the manuscript to Pope Innocent II, who is said to have deposited it in Vatican Archives, where it lay forgotten until it was discovered in 1590 and published. At the time, some questioned its authenticity and it has been the subject of debate ever since. The manuscript contains 112 prophecies, which scholars have matched with each of the 110 popes and anti-popes since Innocent II ..."
"Malachy included a single line in Latin identifying a characteristic of each pope. Historians say Malachy's prediction – wherein he listed just 112 popes – has been amazingly accurate. Here are the seven last popes as identified from St. Malachy's list:
106. Pius XII 1939 - 1958
Translated: An Angelic Shepherd
107. John XXIII 1958 - 1963
Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli
Pastor Et Natua
Translated: Pastor and Mariner
108. Paul VI 1963 - 1978
Giovanni Battista Montini
Translated: Flower of Flowers
"His coat of arms included three fleurs-de-lis (iris blossoms)."
This pope was the first to begin carrying the Satanic, "Twisted Cross Crucifix", signifying to the occult world that the Illuminati had finally captured control of the Vatican. (Read NEWS1623 for full details).
109. John Paul I 1978 - 1978
De Medietate Lunae
Translated: Of the Half Moon
He was "born in the diocese of Belluno (beautiful moon) and was baptized Albino Luciani (white light). He became pope on August 26, 1978, when the moon appeared exactly half full. It was in its waning phase. He died the following month, soon after an eclipse of the moon."
In fact, this pope was killed precisely 33 days after assuming the papacy.
Rumors persist that he was killed, possibly by occultists within the Vatican.
110. John Paul II 1978 - 2005
Karol Jozef Wojtyla
De Labore Solis
Translated: From the Toil of the Sun
"John Paul II. The 110th is 'De Labore Solis' (Of the Solar Eclipse, or From the Toil of the Sun) ... John Paul II was born on May 8, 1920 during an eclipse of the sun. Like the sun, he came out of the East (Poland). Like the sun, he visited countries all around the globe."
On May 18, 1920, John Paul II (Karol Jozef Wojtyla) was born on a day when a Solar Eclipse occurred, and this pope will be buried, Friday, April 8, 2005, on a day when a relatively rare Annular Total Eclipse occurs. This pope was the ultimate Sun God in every way! (NEWS2020)
Further, I never thought that the reason this pope visited so many countries around the world, unlike any predecessor, is because he was acting out his role as the "De Labore Solis"! Nor did I think that the reason the cardinals chose a Polish cardinal as pope was because that country was considered "out of the East"!
Notice how accurate this 1148 A.D. prophecy was concerning Pope John Paul II! As we demonstrated in NEWS2020, John Paul II was the ultimate Roman Catholic Sun God! Even though each Pontiff follows the Zoroastrian Tradition of the Zarathustra Sun God, John Paul II was the penultimate Sun God, just as we stated, above.
Now, let us examine Pope #111, the next pope. The number "11" and "111" and multiplications of them, are very sacred numbers to the occultist and points directly to the coming Antichrist. For this reason, the attacks of 9/11/2001, contained a very strong occult signature of "11" (Read NEWS1756 for full details).
111. The next pope
Translated: The Glory of the Olive
"The meaning of the olive is unclear. The Order of Saint Benedict –
not St. Malachy – has claimed that this pope will come from its ranks
and Saint Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world his Order,
known also as the Olivetans, will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its
final fight against evil."
UPDATED -- APRIL 19, 2005
On April 19, the first day of the Black Magick annual celebration known as the Blood Sacrifice to the Beast (NEWS1556 and NEWS1796 the Catholic Cardinals elected their next pope! He is Cardinal Ratzinger, who took the name, Benedict XVI. Taking the name, "Benedict" seemingly "fulfills" the prophecy of St. Malachy, which stipulates that this 111th pope in the prophcy will be known as "Gloria Olivae" -- The Glory of the Olive.
As we noted, above, The Order of Saint Benedict have long claimed that this pope will come from its ranks. Also as we noted, above, Saint Benedict "prophesied that before the end of the world his Order, known also as the Olivetans, will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its final fight against evil."
Thus, the German Cardinal Ratzinger has now been elected Pope and has taken the name "Benedict XVI". Catholic adherents will now claim that the prophecy of St. Malachy is now fulfilled to include this pope. Occultists throughout the world will note two other factors:
1) Ratzinger is pope 111th in this prophecy. Thus, the use of the "11" so prevalent in Antichrist news since the 9/11 attacks continues.
2) Ratzinger was the Head of the Office of Inquisition -- also known as the Office of the Defender of the Faith -- before being elected pope. As Cutting Edge has pointed out so often, why would Pope John Paul II reinstate the Office of Inquisition unless he was planning to use it again? Since the Roman Catholic pontiff is planned to be the False Prophet of Revelation 13:11-18 (NEWS1052 and NEWS1285), the occult signatures of this new pope seem to be falling into place.
112. The last pope! "Petrus Romanus"
This designation seems to imply that the final pope -- the actual False Prophet -- might come from Rome, from the line of the Romans. This possibility makes Biblical sense, for Antichrist himself is prophesied from coming out of a "Revived Roman Empire" (Daniel 9:26b).
Therefore, it is consistent to think that the last pope might be a Roman, an Italian, with roots back to Imperial Rome. In fact, since the Roman Catholic Church has always falsely claimed that the Apostle Peter was their first pope, it seems logical that they would plan on their last pope being "Petrus Romanus"! Listen to the explanation given in our first featured article, above:
"Wrote St. Malachy of the last pope: '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'." [Ibid.]
Does this pagan Catholic prophecy sound like this genuine prophetic Scripture?
"And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will be the very ones to hate the harlot (the idolatrous woman); they will make her cheerless (bereaved, desolate), and they will strip her and eat up her flesh and utterly consume her with fire ... the woman that you saw is herself the great city which dominates and controls the rulers and the leaders of the earth." [Revelation 17:16, 18; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
What "great city" is Jesus speaking of here? We are told in another part of Revelation.
"The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth." [Rev 17:9; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Bible scholars have long identified this "harlot" as the False Prophet church, and since these verses refer to a "woman" being so important in the religion, scholars have identified the church over which she sits as the Roman Catholic Church. Both the wording of the prophecy of St. Malachy and Revelation 17:9 refer to the city of seven hills.
St. Malachy predicts what Jesus predicted in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 17. The final pope -- the False Prophet -- who serves Antichrist so faithfully in the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation, is hated by Antichrist and his 10 political kings. At the right moment, Antichrist will turn his political and military power against this final pope -- this False Prophet -- and utterly destroy her with fire.
The Luciferian head of the Theosophical Society, Alice Bailey, tells us what this destroying "fire" might be.
"The Atomic bomb does not belong to the three nations who perfected it ... It belongs to the United Nations, for use or threatened use ..." ["The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", Alice Bailey, p. 548, written May 1946]
Therefore, you can see that the prophecy of the Catholic priest, St. Malachy, conforms to the Biblical prophecy, as it surely must if it is to come true. As we have stated many times before, God allows the demonic host limited prophetic foreknowledge, He gives them the ability to utter prophecy and then fulfill it, as long as this pagan prophecy conforms to the greater prophecy in the Bible.
Thus, IF the St. Malachy prophecy comes true regarding this next pope, remember these facts, and do not get carried away with the masses of the undiscerning, who will react to fulfilled prophecy as a stamp of validation.
If the St. Malachy prophecy holds true through this next pope and the final pope, does this means the world has decades left before the final pope -- the False Prophet -- takes center stage? While this may be the case, I doubt it. Even though Pope John Paul II served an incredibly long 26 years, not every pope in history have served that long.
Pope John Paul I, who succeeded Pope Paul VI, served only 33 days before dying under mysterious circumstances. A short time later, a newly-convened College of Cardinals elected Pope John Paul II. Other popes in church history have served very short times as well. In this St. Malachy list, for example, Pope John XXIII served from 1958 - 1963, only five years. Therefore, having two more popes left does not necessarily mean that decades are ahead of the world before Antichrist and his False Prophet arise.
And, of course, St. Malachy's prophecies might not carry through this time. We shall just have to wait to see. One thing is certain, though, Pope John Paul II accomplished more for the Illuminati than any other pope in history. He systematically set about to unify the world into a One World Religion, with the Papacy at the head. Not only is that the global plan (NEWS1052), but it is Biblical. Listen to the Biblical description of the False Prophet:
"Then I saw another beast rising up out of the land itself; he had two horns like a lamb ..." [Revelation 13:11a; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Did you catch the pertinent phrase? "he had two horns like a lamb" -- in other words, he pretended to be a Christian.
Then, the last part of this prophecy is equally important:
"... and he spoke (roared) like a dragon." [Revelation 13:11b; Ibid.]
Rome roars like the pagan, Babylonian dragon she is. This dual essence is truly
the Roman Catholic Papacy, and she is now maneuvering into position so that
her Pope will one day be the False Prophet, serving Antichrist. Pope John Paul
II played a huge part in this scenario. As one Cardinal was heard saying on
TV just a few days after the pope's death, "Pope John Paul II opened the
door for the Christ".
The world is truly hurtling down the track toward the Final Birth Pangs war and the appearance of Antichrist and his False Prophet. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
