Of course none are more fascinating or as weird as those put forth by the conspiracy whores in Armstrongism. If they spent as much time being Good Samaritans as they do pissing out weird conspiracy's then the world might be a better place. However, it is far more convenient for them to reveal some hidden knowledge that they can pass on as "truth" to their dwindling acolytes.
"While this man is coming across as a lamb speaking the words of the dragon; he is 76 with health issues and his name does not come out to the scriptural 666; which is the number of a MAN."
"While this man Francis could be empowered at the appointed time, and even his papal name might be changed due to that event; It is just as possible that he will be a short term leader.I will not be convinced until a man [either this man or another man] is empowered as the scriptures say.
Counting back 1,290 days as per Dan 12; from the closest future sixth day of ULB; the abomination COULD be empowered in early Oct: IF IF IF this is the year."
"Very interesting, the new pope is a Jesuit ( a “black”) pope."
From Herbert Armstrong imitator Gerald Flurry
Pope Francis: What the Mainstream Media Doesn’t KnowThe Internet and Twitterverse is awash with news about the new pope. Few people really understand what the papal election was really about. But Bible prophecy explains what is happening. Here is the real scoop.
In his February 28 Key of David telecast, “Why Did The Pope Resign,” Gerald Flurry said that we couldn’t understand why the pope resigned without an understanding of the history and prophecy of Europe. “There are many educators and leaders and media personalities that feel certain that they know,” he said, “but I think very few of them do because they don’t understand the history of the Holy Roman Empire, not to mention the history of the Bible or Bible prophecy.”
The pope emeritus has a main goal, Mr. Flurry continued, that we can only understand by looking at the history and prophecy of the Holy Roman Empire. The pope resigned because he wants to ensure a very pro-Holy Roman Empire pope is installed.
In the same telecast, Gerald Flurry quoted a Spiegel article entitled “Exhausted in the Vatican: the final battles of Pope Benedict xvi.” The article pointed out that as of at least eight months ago the pope and the Curia were already looking for a successor to Benedict.
Both the Vatican Curia and the pope emeritus want the new pope to bring unity and peace to the warring factions within the Vatican—so it can focus on uniting Europe under the banner of the Catholic Church.
In his February 28 Key of David telecast, Gerald Flurry said, “[I]nsiders of the Vatican, or the Catholic Church, I should say, and perhaps even in the Vatican … have spoken out, mainly a couple who are Catholics and authorities on Catholicism, and they said, one on Laura Ingram’s talk radio show, and one on Fox News, and they said that Pope Benedict wanted the time to influence who the next pope would be. They said that themselves, that he wanted to influence who the next pope was going to be. Well, now, why would he want to do that? Why would that be so important to this pope?
“Well, now, there’s a specific reason, and that is he wants to unite the Holy Roman Empire, as many other Europeans do, and this pope has that, I believe, as his primary goal, and he feels he can have a great influence on the next pope that is chosen, who will be a man that he believes can control the Vatican and bring Europe together into what we know as the Holy Roman Empire” (emphasis added).
The final resurrection of the seventh head of the Holy Roman Empire is ready to burst onto the world scene in an amazing way. This is what this is all about. Francis i just very well may be the last pope before the return of Jesus Christ. Of course, time will tell. But in the same telecast, Gerald Flurry said the seventh head of the Holy Roman Empire is about to appear, and events in Europe and the world are about to dramatically turn for the worse.
The installation of Pope Francis is about the fulfillment of Bible prophecy and the return of Jesus Christ—the best headline a newspaper could ever have a privilege to print and proclaim.
As Gerald Flurry has explained, this pope will enact a two-pronged strategy: unite the Vatican first, and then move to unite Europe under the banner of the Holy Roman Empire.
That is the real scoop.
"Let’s not forget the strong ties the Nazi regime has to Argentina."
"The new pope is a member of the Jesuit order. So are Eurocrats like Mario Draghi and Von Rompuy. This order is colloquially known as GOD’S MARINES! They are a militant and dedicated lot to the church."
"“His shy demeanor and humble personality, however, indicate that he may likely remain a puppet of the Pope Emeritus instead of becoming the final Vatican strongman himself”.
That, or Pope Emeritus, just may come out of “retirement” and once again take over the reins of the Vatican."
"We have another Warlord in place, this time in the Vatican!
So far we have at least the following Warlords in place:
1) Jesuit Warlord of the Catholic Church, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now hiding as Pope Francis.
2) Jesuit Warlord of Europe, Herman Achille Van Rompuy, President of the European Council.
3) Jesuit Warlord of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi.
4) Jesuit Warlord of Italy, Mario Monti.
5) Jesuit Warlord of Spain, Mariano Rajoy.
Do you see a pattern evolving here? My questions are, “Where will the NEXT Warlord surface? ” and “How long before they combine forces and plunge the world into another World War? “ "
" Pope Emeritus Ratzinger is the puppet master and Pope Francis Bergoglio is the puppet. Emeritus is behind/out of sight of the puppet shown to the audience. This dynamic duo of a war time pope and a pro-europe latino pope will become very colluded on the day of the blitzkrieg against Iran, Egypt, Libya, & Ethiopia. Then in sequence… , how many european catholics will shed a tear when their fellow american catholics are nuked with the pope’s blessing. Hosea 5:13."
"If the U.S. is overthrown, as the Bible prophesy clearly tells us, by the EU Holy Roman Empire, it would need a strong South American Catholic partner to accomplish it effectively. It seems to me that could be where the land invasion forces come from. Seems practical and reasonable from a military perspective?"
"One step closer to the return of Jesus Christ! That is the best news ever.
Just imagine reading the front page of the newspaper, Jesus Christ has returned!"
"The man is Italian… OK so he lives in South America… he is Italian He is Jesuit, a member of God’s Marines. He may look like a lamb but having studied in Germany he is well suited for the position he now holds. So, who among you know the meaning of “God’s Marines” and why their vesture is BROWN? It is not because the old potato sacks were brown."
Living Church of God debunks and takes a swipe at non-ordained self appointed prophet Thiel's absurd fascination with Malachy's prophecies. LCG's stance is far more benign than many COG's, though they still think the Catholic Church is the great whore and is seeking to being Protestants back into the fold at the end times. This is also what has pissed off apostle Malm and prophet Thiel. Both think the LCG has become wishy-washy in it's message
For hundreds of years, each new Roman Catholic pontiff has been eyed against a famous document called the “Prophecy of St. Malachy.” Malachy’s “prophecies” have often seemed so broad and vague that it has been a challenge to figure out how each might apply. Pope Benedict XVI supposedly corresponded to “Glory of the Olive.” After him, the next man in Malachy’s list is called “Petrus Romanus.”
No doubt, speculations will seek to tie Francis I to this old prophecy. Others will point out that there may be innumerable men between “Glory of the Olive” and “Petrus Romanus.” In any case, especially when we consider that John Paul I lasted in office for just 33 days in 1978, there is no reason to assume that Francis I will be the final pope before Christ’s return.
We should also note that, although this famous list of future popes was long ago attributed to a 12th century monk, scholars now assume it was forged in 1590 by someone supporting Cardinal Girolamo Simoncelli as Pope Urban VII’s successor. Malachy gave Urban VII’s successor the motto “From the Old City”—which would fit very well with Simoncelli’s hometown of Orvieto, known widely as “the Old City” at that time. However, the pope who was in fact elected, Gregory XIV, was from Somma Lombardo, a region not even recognized as a city until the 20th century.
