Bob Thiel, the non-ordaiend self-appointed false prophet of the Continuing Ed Church of God is vacationing in Europe and made a pit stop in Rome to visit the Whore of Babylon.
As usual the false prophet is quoting the rantings of lunatics from hundreds of years ago as truth. He did the exact same thing with the Mayan calendar last year and ended up looking like a fool.
Thiel places great trust in these extra-biblical nightmares that these people had. From Fatima and Malachy to Loma Armstrong, the dreams and visions these three had hold more importance to anything that is continued in his bible. Jesus takes the back burner while Fatima and Malachy are given places of prominence in his little personality cult. Without these conspiracy theories and his proof texts of Revelations, Daniel and Ezekiel he has nothing to stand up for.
While in Rome he has this to say about the new Pope:
I was encouraged that in the former Archdiocese of our new Pope there exists a sanctuary and two parishes dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is especially practised on the first Saturday of every month. So the words and requests of Our Lady of Fatima would not be foreign to him.
The other thing I had in my background was a prophecy from Antonio Ruffini, who has a prophetic gift. He told me in January, 1990 that this Pope – he didn’t name him – but he just said “the successor of the successor of John Paul II would be the one to do the consecration.” If Ruffini is not mistaken, then it’s a good sign. We may finally have a Pope who is going to do the consecration of Russia. Prudently though, we have to wait and see whether or not Ruffini completely understood whatever message he got on that.What this means is that a Catholic “prophet” told Priest Gruner that it would be Pope 112 on the Malachy prophecy list that would bring devotion to Mary to the world, peace, and prosperity.
Pope Francis himself asked twice that his pontificate would be consecrated to the Lady of Fatima (see Pope Francis’ pontificate consecrated to ‘Lady of Fatima’). This would seem to be a step towards the type of consecration that The Fatima Center wants. If this consecration is done, it could set off a series of events that will lead to the rise of the Beast power and the confirmation of the Antichrist (there are many antichrists, but I am referring to the one that is the False Prophet listed in Revelation). Despite his age, Pope Francis possibly could be this leader. He has taken steps that suggest he either is that leader or he is setting the stage for that leader (e.g. Pope Francis calls for new economic order and is alleged to have performed a public exorcism: Could these be signs of the final Antichrist?)..The Bible warns about a “Lady” in the end times (Isaiah 47) who is also called a “harlot” (Revelation 17/18). As I have contended for years, it may well be that some of what is related to Fatima will tie into various end time biblical prophecies about signs and lying wonders (2 Thessalonians 2:9)–that most people will sadly believe as they have insufficient love of the truth (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
