The Prophecy of St Malachy about the Popes Feb 11 2013

A good friend sent me the prophecy of the last Pope by St Malachy of the Catholic church. The video at the end says that this Pope will be the Antichrist, I believe that this Pope will be the False Prophet of Rev:13.11

http://niv.scripturetext.com/revelation/13.htm

11Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. 12He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. 14Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.

The abdication of the Pope is covered by Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News Video Feb 11, 2013

The day continuous to unfold and the news of the Pope’s abdication to the throne of Peter is the news of the day. Much will be said and speculated in the days to come about the election of the new Pope, but to those of us versed in prophetic scripture this is a major pointer to the Rapture of the Church and the coming of the Apocalypse.

If you look at the earth itself it is heralding the coming time by its shaking. The area of Santa Cruz islands in the Solomon Archipelago is a warning from the Almighty God by shaking a place that carries the name of the Holy Cross of our Lord Jesus. Make no mistake world this is coming from the throne to all who will listen.

Today I went to Prophecy in the News to see the daily news update by Mr. Gary Stearman. He has been sick for a month now and is returning to the program just as this enormous news came about.

His observations about the seventh church of the book of Revelation, the Church of Laodocea, is right on the money of Biblical exposition. The church that remains after the Rapture will be spewed out of the mouth of Jesus and as Gary states this may mean they will go through the Tribulations and become martyrs.

In the video he covers the book by Thomas Horn The Last Pope is here Petrus Romanus which is a must read to properly grasp the true meaning of what is happening now. There are several articles and interviews with the author Mr. Horn in this blog under the title False Prophet.

Who’s next? 8 cardinal contenders who could succeed Pope Benedict

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

By Tracy Connor, Staff Writer, NBC News

The bookmakers in Europe already have their favorites, but the world won’t know who will succeed Pope Benedict XVI until that puff of white smoke is sent up the chimney of the conclave room next month.

The College of Cardinals has no shortage of factors to consider in picking the next pope — from age to geography — and no dearth of potential candidates.

Here are some of the princes of the church whose names have emerged from Vatican watchers since Monday’s surprise abdication announcement:

Paolo Bona / Reuters

Archbishop of Milan Angelo Scola, attending a funeral in 2012, could be a front-runner to be the next pope.

Cardinal Angelo Scola: He’s the archbishop of Milan, a good launching pad for popes, and the former Patriarch of Venice, which has also produced many a papal front-runner. Scola, 71, has close ties to the conservative Communion and Liberation movement, is a champion of immigrants’ right and has been active in outreach to the Muslim world. Vatican expert John Allen has written of Scola: “If you like Benedict XVI, you’ll love Scola; even if you don’t, you’ll find it hard not to be charmed.”

Cardinal Marc Ouellet: Former archbishop of Quebec, he heads the Congregation of Bishops, a power center. Ouellet, 68, speaks six languages, spent a decade as a missionary in Colombia and has strong ties to Latin and South America. He’s considered conservative and made headlines in 2010 when he said abortion was a “moral crime,” even in cases of rape. In a 2011 interview, he laughed off the idea of becoming pontiff, saying the workload and responsibility “would be a nightmare.”

Cardinal Leonardo Sandri: Born in Argentina to Italian parents, Sandri was No. 2 in the Vatican Secretary of State’s office under Pope John Paul II and now serves as prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches. A longtime Vatican diplomat, Sandri, 69, is well-respected but seen by some as more of a top-notch administrator than a theological leader.

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi looks on at Palm Sunday mass in Saint Peter’s Square at the Vatican.

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi: The Italian-born president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, Ravasi, 70, is hugely popular through his Scripture lessons on TV and radio. On a crusade to keep the church relevant, he blogs, quotes Amy Winehouse on Twitter, and criticizes priests for boring sermons. An archaeologist by training, he’s a brainy biblical scholar who is seen as a theological moderate.

Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco: The archbishop of Genoa is well-connected, having served twice as the president of the Italian bishop’s conference. A baker’s son who says he knew he wanted to be a priest in elementary school, Bagnasco, 70, is considered a conservative force in the church. He was the target of death threats in 2007 after comments opposing same-sex unions and in 2011 he launched a thinly veiled attack on scandal-ridden Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and other politicians, referring to them as “sad and hollow.”

Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana arriving for a Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican in 2005.

 Cardinal Peter Turkson: The first Ghanaian cardinal, he’s president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and the Vatican’s point man on Catholicism in Africa. An energetic 64 years old, Turkson is considered to be more moderate than some other contenders but hardly a radical. Asked about the spread of AIDS in Africa, he said abstinence was a better solution than condoms. A couple of years ago, he said the first black pope would have a “rough time” and he wasn’t bucking for the job.

Cardinal Odilo Scherer: Born in Brazil to parents of German extraction, Scherer’s big advantage is geography; he hails from the region that is home to half the world’s Catholics. Considered a moderate, the 63-year-old serves as the archbishop of Sao Paulo and has spots in two key Vatican groups, the Congregation for the Clergy and the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan: The head of the archdiocese of New York is one of the Vatican’s most popular figures — charismatic, camera-ready and conservative. As head of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, he hasn’t shied from away from political fights, taking on the Obama administration over contraception. But Dolan, 63, has only been a cardinal for a year.

P.S.  Mr. Obama said very recently that “America has no spending problems”!  Really?!  Obama has watched over America spending 6 trillion it does not have in his first four years!  One of the goals of the New World Order is indeed to bankrupt America so America will go quietly into the coming global government.  That is why their stooge says that America has no spending problems!

Will The Next Pope be the False Prophet of Rev:13.12? Who will he be? Feb 11, 2013

The article that follows speculates about the selection of the new Pope. These candidates are the most visible in their exposure and ecclesiastical positions, but there is a more sinister and occultist undercurrent that exist among the total cardinals available for the selection of the Next Pope. This faction has been active in Vatican circles for many decades if not centuries and they involve Cardinals who are Masons and have pledge their loyalty to Lucifer not to Jesus.

Sadly the godly elements of the next synod will find themselves overrun by that group which will then usher in the final Pope who I believe, as well as many Christian Bible prophecy scholars, will be the False prophet of Revelation 13:11.

Please make note that today is the 11th of the year 2013 and the announcement day corresponds to the chapter and verse of Revelation.

The Beast out of the Earth

11Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. 12He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. 14Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.

In his excellent book The Last Pope is here Mr. Thomas Horn goes in great detail the possible candidates. He believes that Cardinal Bertone is the primary candidate to be Petrus Romanus.

If you have not read this book now is the time to go right ahead and do it, as the next weeks will be full of anticipation for this event of transcendental importance to the world.

Papal succession: Can a Latin American claim the papacy?

Who’s in line to succeed Pope Benedict XVI? Here’s a guide to the possible candidates.

PARIS — With Pope Benedict’s stunning announcement that he will resign later this month, the time may be coming for the Roman Catholic Church to elect its first non-European leader and it could be a Latin American.

The region already represents 42 percent of the world’s 1.2 billion-strong Catholic population, the largest single block in the Church, compared to 25 percent in its European heartland.

After the Pole John Paul and German-born Benedict, the post once reserved for Italians is now open to all. Who gets the nod depends on the profile of the new pope that the cardinals who elect him at the next conclave think will guide the Church best.

Two senior Vatican officials recently dropped surprisingly clear hints about possible successors. The upshot of their remarks is that the next pope could well be from Latin America.

Angel Merkel: Respect pope’s decision

“I know a lot of bishops and cardinals from Latin America who could take responsibility for the universal Church,” said Archbishop Gerhard Mueller, who now holds the pope’s old post as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

“The universal Church teaches that Christianity isn’t centered on Europe,” the German-born archbishop told Duesseldorf’s Rheinische Post newspaper just before Christmas.

Swiss Cardinal Kurt Koch, head of the Vatican department for Christian unity, told the Tagesanzeiger daily in Zurich at the same time that the Church’s future was not in Europe.

“It would be good if there were candidates from Africa or South America at the next conclave,” he said, referring to the closed-door election in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel.

Asked if he would vote for a non-European over a European candidate if they were equally qualified, he responded: “Yes.”

If the next conclave really is Latin America’s turn, the leading candidates there seem to be Odilo Scherer, archbishop of the huge diocese of Sao Paolo, or the Italian-Argentine Leonardo Sandri, now heading the Vatican department for Eastern Churches.

Peter Turkson from Ghana, now head of the Vatican’s justice and peace department, is often tipped as Africa’s frontrunner.

About half the cardinals who can vote are from Europe, even though only a quarter of the world’s Catholics live there. If the conclave tilts to the Old Continent, Vatican watchers say Angelo Scola of Milan is in pole position.

Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, a former student and close ally of Benedict, is also considered a strong candidate.

FRONTRUNNERS FOR NOW

While there are no official candidates, here are “papabili” (potential popes) the most frequently mentioned recently. The list is in alphabetical, not in order of their chances, and will probably change between now and when the conclave is held, most likely in March.

– Joao Braz de Aviz (Brazil, 65) brought fresh air to the Vatican department for religious congregations when he took over in 2011. He supports the preference for the poor in Latin America’s liberation theology, but not the excesses of its advocates. Possible drawbacks include his low profile.

– Timothy Dolan, (USA, 62) became the voice of U.S. Catholicism after being named archbishop of New York in 2009. His humor and dynamism have impressed the Vatican, where both are often missing. But cardinals are wary of a “superpower pope” and his back-slapping style may be too American for some.

– Marc Ouellet (Canada, 68) is effectively the Vatican’s top staff director as head of the Congregation for Bishops. He once said becoming pope “would be a nightmare.” Though well connected within the Curia, the widespread secularism of his native Quebec could work against him.

– Gianfranco Ravasi (Italy, 70) has been Vatican culture minister since 2007 and represents the Church to the worlds of art, science, culture and even to atheists. This profile could hurt him if cardinals decide they need an experienced pastor rather than another professor as pope.

– Leonardo Sandri (Argentina, 69) is a “transatlantic” figure born in Buenos Aires to Italian parents. He held the third-highest Vatican post as its chief of staff in 2000-2007. But he has no pastoral experience and his job overseeing eastern churches is not a power position in Rome.

– Odilo Pedro Scherer (Brazilia, 63) ranks as Latin America’s strongest candidate. Archbishop of Sao Paolo, largest diocese in the largest Catholic country, he is conservative in his country but would rank as a moderate elsewhere. The rapid growth of Protestant churches in Brazil could count against him.

– Christoph Schoenborn (Austria, 67) is a former student of Pope Benedict with a pastoral touch the pontiff lacks. The Vienna archbishop has ranked as papal material since editing the Church catechism in the 1990s. But some cautious reform stands and strong dissent by some Austrian priests could hurt him.

– Angelo Scola (Italy, 71) is archbishop of Milan, a springboard to the papacy, and is many Italians’ bet to win. An expert on bioethics, he also knows Islam as head of a foundation to promote Muslim-Christian understanding. His dense oratory could put off cardinals seeking a charismatic communicator.

– Luis Tagle (Philippines, 55) has a charisma often compared to that of the late Pope John Paul. He is also close to Pope Benedict after working with him at the International Theological Commission. While he has many fans, he only became a cardinal in 2012 and conclaves are wary of young candidates.

– Peter Turkson (Ghana, 64) is the top African candidate. Head of the Vatican justice and peace bureau, he is spokesman for the Church’s social conscience and backs world financial reform. He showed a video criticizing Muslims at a recent Vatican synod, raising doubts about how he sees Islam.

The Abdication of Pope Benedict XVI paves the way for the fulfillment of Saint Malachy’s prophecy of the Popes

Today about 8:30AM I received a call from my mother in law to tell me the news that the Pope Benedict XVI was abdicating on the 28th of February. This news has been long anticipated by many Christians who study Bible prophecies. In this blog you will find extensive coverage written prior to it happening. Please refer to the category False Prophet to view all the articles that are referring to this event.

At this point it is important to review a Catholic Church prophecy. In his book The Final Pope is Here Petrus Romanus the author introduces a Catholic prophecy written by Saint Malachy (Mael Maedoc Ua Morgair) around the year 1140 AD starting with Pope Celestine II (#1) to the last Pope whom he called Petrus Romanus (#112). His count averaged 11 years per Pope. With this average Mr. Horne arrived at the year 2012. His calculations were pretty accurate in determining the year of fulfillment.

I highly recommend the reading of this very good book and now that it is to be fulfilled it is more revelant than ever.

I want to point out that what makes it relevant and probably true is the fact that many Bible prophecies concerning the end times are being fulfilled day by day at a staggering pace.

We are looking in anticipation for the soon coming Rapture of the church and the beginning of the Tribulation where our Lord Jesus Christ will destroy the evil that grips this present world and make of all His enemies His footstool. At the end of the seven years He will return from heaven with all His Saints and establish His Millennial Kingdom where He will rule the whole world from Jerusalem and will bring Peace and Justice to the Nations.

Pope Benedict XVI to step aside on Feb. 28

The pope announces he will step down on February 28 because of his failing health. TODAY’s Matt Lauer speaks with NBC’s Claudio Lavanga in Rome, who says the resignation “came as a shock,” and George Weigel, NBC New Vatican consultant.

By Claudio Lavanga and Alastair Jamieson, NBC News

Updated at 8:49 a.m. ET: ROME — Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday he will step aside as leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics on Feb. 28, saying he no longer has the strength to carry out his duties.

Speaking in Latin, the 85-year-old announced his decision during an address at the “Concistory for the canonization of the martyrs of Otranto”, a small event held early in the morning.

The decision makes him the first pope to resign since the Middle Ages.

His statement was posted on the Vatican Radio website. Carrying out the duties of being pope required “both strength of mind and body,” it said.

NBC New Vatican analyst George Weigel gives his thoughts on Pope Benedict XVI’s announcement of his resignation, and explains how a new pope will be selected.

“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,” the pontiff’s statement said.

The choice was a “decision of great importance” for the church, the statement added.

German news agency dpa quoted the pontiff’s brother, Georg Ratzinger, as saying his brother was increasingly struggling to walk and had been contemplating stepping aside for several months. “His age is weighing on him,” he reportedly added.

There are several papal contenders in the wings, but no obvious front-runner, The Associated Press reported.

It added:

Contenders to be his successor include Cardinal Angelo Scola, archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, the archbishop of Vienna, and Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the Canadian head of the Vatican’s office for bishops.

Reuters quoted a Vatican spokesman as saying the pontiff did not fear schism in the Church following his resignation.

Luke Coppen, editor of UK newspaper The Catholic Herald, told the Daily Telegraph: “Pope Benedict’s pontificate has been full of surprises. This is the biggest one of all.”

‘A decision of great courage’
Archbishop Vincent Nichols, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, said that the pope’s announcement had “shocked and surprised everyone.”

“Yet, on reflection, I am sure that many will recognize it to be a decision of great courage and characteristic clarity of mind and action,” he added.

Born in Bavaria, Germany, in 1927, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became the 265th pope in April 2005, describing himself “a simple, humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord.”

April 20, 2005: Speaking directly to the cardinals who elected him, Pope Benedict XVI issues a mission statement: To unify all Christians and reach out to other religions. NBC’s Keith Miller reports.

Reuters noted:

Ratzinger served in the Hitler Youth during World War Two when membership was compulsory. He was never a member of the Nazi party and his family opposed Adolf Hitler’s regime.

His tough stance on theological issues had earned him the nickname “God’s rottweiler.” He was the oldest pope elected in nearly 300 years, according to The Associated Press.

The last pope to step aside was Gregory XII in 1415, who did so in order to end the Great Western Schism.

Greg Burke, senior communications adviser to the Holy See, confirmed the pope will step down on February 28 at 8 p.m. local time (2 p.m. ET), leaving the office vacant until a successor is chosen.

The Associated Press added:

The move sets the stage for the Vatican to hold a conclave to elect a new pope by mid-March, since the traditional mourning time that would follow the death of a pope doesn’t have to be observed.

The archbishop of New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, explains the “mixed emotions” he feels about the news that Pope Benedict XVI will resign on February 28, saying he feels a “special bond” with the pope.

Reuters noted that Benedict XVI “ruled over a slower-paced, more cerebral and less impulsive Vatican.”

It added:

But while conservatives cheered him for trying to reaffirm traditional Catholic identity, his critics accused him of turning back the clock on reforms by nearly half a century and hurting dialogue with Muslims, Jews and other Christians. …

After appearing uncomfortable in the limelight at the start, he began feeling at home with his new job and showed that he intended to be pope in his way.

Despite great reverence for his charismatic, globe-trotting predecessor — whom he put on the fast track to sainthood and whom he beatified in 2011 — aides said he was determined not to change his quiet manner to imitate John Paul’s style. …

The first German pope for some 1,000 years and the second non-Italian in a row, he traveled regularly, making about four foreign trips a year, but never managed to draw the oceanic crowds of his predecessor.

Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI in 2005. Look back at his life from childhood through his papacy.
