Why Pope Francis May Be a Catholic Nightmare

He may seem like a humble reformer, but Cardinal Bergoglio is the last thing the Vatican needs.

There are two ways to look at the election of Pope Francis. He takes the name of the famous saint, whose life was defined by a vision in which he was commanded by a crucifix to “rebuild my Church, which is in ruins.” That name, combined with rumors that Cardinal Bergoglio impressed his fellow Cardinals at preconclave meetings with his willingness to clean up the Curia, may be a signal that reform is on the way.

His choice of name may also signal an affiliation with the Jesuit saint Francis Xavier, an exemplary evangelist and missionary. Cardinal Bergoglio is known as a simple, humble person who eschewed the pomp of his high office in the church. Until now, he has lived in a simple apartment and cooked his own meals. He worked to prevent priests from abandoning their parishes and the sacraments entirely for revolutionary political activism in Argentina, when liberation theology was ascendant.

But the other way to look at the dawn of this papacy is that it is one more in the pile of recent Catholic novelties and mediocrities. He is the first Latin American pope, the first Jesuit to be pope, and the first to take the name Francis. And so he falls in line with the larger era of the church in the past 50 years which has been defined by ill-considered experimentation: a “pastoral” ecumenical council at Vatican II, a new synthetic vernacular liturgy, the hasty revision of the rules for almost all religious orders within the church, the dramatic gestures and “saint factory” of Pope John Paul II’s papacy, along with the surprise resignation of Benedict XVI. In this vision, Benedict’s papacy, which focused on “continuity,” seems like the exception to an epoch of stunning and unsettling change, which—as we know—usually heralds collapse.

There are reasons to believe that Pope Francis is a transitional figure, unlikely to effect major reform at the top of the church. He is not known as a champion of any theological vision, traditional or modern. He is just two years younger than Pope Benedict was upon his election eight years ago. He has deep connections to Italy, but little experience with the workings of the Vatican offices. A contentious reading of Pope Francis’ rise is that Benedict’s enemies have triumphed completely. It is unusual for a one-time rival in a previous election to triumph in a future one. And there is almost no path to Bergoglio’s election without support from curial Italians, combined with a Latin American bloc. Low-level conspiracy theories already flourish in Italy that Benedict’s resignation was the result of a curia determined to undermine his reforms. This election will only intensify that speculation. An older pope who does not know which curial offices and officers need the ax, will be even easier to ignore than Benedict.

Besides his lack of knowledge of the ins and outs of the Vatican, there is almost no evidence of him taking a tough line with anyone in his own diocese. Are we to believe that Buenos Aires has been spared the moral rot and corruption found almost everywhere else in the Catholic clergy? Or, more likely, do we have another Cardinal who looked the other way, and studiously avoided confrontation with the “filth” in the church, no matter the danger to children or to the cause of the church?  Presumption and detraction are sins, but Catholics should gird themselves; the sudden spotlight on his reign may reveal scandal and negligence.

Liturgical traditionalists (myself included) can only be depressed by this election–it is almost the worst result possible for those of us who think the new liturgy lost the theological profundity and ritual beauty of the Tridentine Mass. Benedict’s liberation of the traditional Latin Mass and revisions to the new vernacular Mass have not been implemented at all in Cardinal Bergoglio’s own diocese. Already some of the small breaks with liturgical tradition at the announcement of his election are being interpreted as a move toward the grand, unruly, and improvisational style of John Paul II; an implicit rebuke of Benedict.

Of course, the papacy has offered surprises in the past. Catholic tradition holds that the papacy was built on a mediocre man, St. Peter, who was once described as “a shuffler, a snob, a coward—in a word, a man.” Pope Francis is now the man at the head of a Church impaired by immoral clergy, negligent bishops, and a moribund intellectual and spiritual life. God help him.

Is the new Pope Francis the last Pope, the False Prophet? March 14, 2013

The election of the new Pope has put a Jesuit priest for the first time in the seat of a Pope. Is this the final Pope who allies with the Antichrist as the False Prophet of Revelation.

It is to early to confirm his role but things will surely speed up in the next few days as we approach Passover.

The links below offer a great deal of information about the order that has placed its man in the seat of Pope.

Edwina (14 March 2013)
New pontiff, named after meek and mild st. Francis of Assisi? NO! he is named after st. Francis Xavier – A JESUIT!


Dear Doves,
Wanted to know what Tom Horn thinks? http://e2.ma/message/atdxf/a5ueye
Well the white smoke came and what do we have? a nice gentle man? That he may well be, but there is something VERY strange going on.
How about this – http://www.reformation.org/jesuit-oath.html a candidate promoting the New World Order?
 and here gives some clues on the illuniati New World Order connection  http://troyspace2.wordpress.com/2008/02/12/the-mysteries-freemasonry-jesuits-the-eu-a-history/
In short ladies and gentlemen, the jesuit ambition is for political control, they are the biggest order in the catholic church, so here now and today i have the greatest confidence that this pope is “their” man and for just as a time as this 2013,
Shalom, and MARANATHA! Come Lord Jesus!
love edwina.

Joel 1

New International Version (NIV)

1 The word of the Lord that came to Joel son of Pethuel.

An Invasion of Locusts

Hear this, you elders;
listen, all who live in the land.
Has anything like this ever happened in your days
or in the days of your ancestors?
Tell it to your children,
and let your children tell it to their children,
and their children to the next generation.
What the locust swarm has left
the great locusts have eaten;
what the great locusts have left
the young locusts have eaten;
what the young locusts have left
other locusts[a] have eaten.

Wake up, you drunkards, and weep!
Wail, all you drinkers of wine;
wail because of the new wine,
for it has been snatched from your lips.
A nation has invaded my land,
a mighty army without number;
it has the teeth of a lion,
the fangs of a lioness.
It has laid waste my vines
and ruined my fig trees.
It has stripped off their bark
and thrown it away,
leaving their branches white.

Mourn like a virgin in sackcloth
grieving for the betrothed of her youth.
Grain offerings and drink offerings
are cut off from the house of the Lord.
The priests are in mourning,
those who minister before the Lord.
10 The fields are ruined,
the ground is dried up;
the grain is destroyed,
the new wine is dried up,
the olive oil fails.

11 Despair, you farmers,
wail, you vine growers;
grieve for the wheat and the barley,
because the harvest of the field is destroyed.
12 The vine is dried up
and the fig tree is withered;
the pomegranate, the palm and the apple[b] tree—
all the trees of the field—are dried up.
Surely the people’s joy
is withered away.

A Call to Lamentation

13 Put on sackcloth, you priests, and mourn;
wail, you who minister before the altar.
Come, spend the night in sackcloth,
you who minister before my God;
for the grain offerings and drink offerings
are withheld from the house of your God.
14 Declare a holy fast;
call a sacred assembly.
Summon the elders
and all who live in the land
to the house of the Lord your God,
and cry out to the Lord.

15 Alas for that day!
For the day of the Lord is near;
it will come like destruction from the Almighty.[c]

16 Has not the food been cut off
before our very eyes—
joy and gladness
from the house of our God?
17 The seeds are shriveled
beneath the clods.[d]
The storehouses are in ruins,
the granaries have been broken down,
for the grain has dried up.
18 How the cattle moan!
The herds mill about
because they have no pasture;
even the flocks of sheep are suffering.

19 To you, Lord, I call,
for fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness
and flames have burned up all the trees of the field.
20 Even the wild animals pant for you;
the streams of water have dried up
and fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness.

Friedrich Wenz (12 March 2013) “… fields of Aviv Barley found !!!” Tribulations 14 days away!

This article posted below is very important in that the new year of the sacred Jewish calendar given to Moses starts based on the Aviv barley sighting and the same for the New Moon. So as scheduled two weeks from now will be the full Moon of Passover which will start on the evening of the 25th and continue to the 26th.

At this point if you are thinking so what! I will explain why I think is important.

First it is my believe that the start of the Tribulations should start on a Feast of Passover for several reasons.

The first is that the prophecy of Daniel the 9th chapter strongly points to this date by referring to the death of the Messiah at the end of the 69 weeks of years, leaving one week of years unfulfilled for the future.

Jesus was crucified on Passover fulfilling the prophecy and the end of the 69 weeks of years. So it is logical and correct to assume that the fulfillment of the final week will begin at the same date that it stopped on Passover.

A second very important reason in my humble opinion is that Barrack Hussein Obama the future Antichrist has schedule a visit to Israel on the week of Passover mimicking the triumphant entrance of Jesus to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. He is bent on imitating and counterfeiting the Messiah.

A very important third is the election of a new Pope that starts today in the Vatican and which also in my opinion will be the False Prophet of the book of Revelation that will co-partner the Antichrist in the Tribulations.

All this implies that on his trip Obama will confirm a covenant with many for seven years duration Dan:9-27. See info on his trip.

If the seven years covenant is signed, then the two witnesses should make their debut in Jerusalem at the same time. Using the same reasoning the Rapture should occur on the Feast of Pentecost around May 15.

Aviv Search
Day 1

Today (March 11, 2013) we found two fields of Aviv Barley near Gama Junction in
the Northern Negev. The first field was 6-row domesticated barley while the
second was 2-row wild barley. Both fields had large quantities of Aviv Barley. I
posted photos of the barley on Facebook at:
https://www.facebook.com/NehemiaGordon

I also uploaded two videos directly from the fields to:

The next new moon will unequivocally be Chodesh Ha-Aviv – the New Moon of the
Aviv. We will attempt to sight the moon Tuesday night and if it not visible it
will be Wednesday night.

I want to thank everyone for contributing to the Aviv search both financially
and through your prayers.

Shanah Tovah!
Happy New Year!

The Rapture and the Tribulation by Pastor JD Faraq March 11, 2013

It is with great pleasure that I am posting these links to Pastor JD Faraq Prophecy update of 03-03-2013. This update is the continuation of the last one from last week that covered the basic outline of the book of Revelation.

I think that the Pastor has covered two very important subjects, the Rapture and the meaning of the book of Revelation very well.

His exposition is exactly what I believe on the subjects. I could not see any fault or defect in scriptural truth on this lecture. It was profound and covered a lot of biblical themes. I provided a link to the web site and the U-Tube presentation.
