Bob Thiel, the non-ordained self-appointed false prophet of the Continuing Ed Church of God, is making more asinine claims against the new Pope.
The Pope has ordered an investigation into the corruption in the Vatican Bank. Thiel sees this as a sign of the end times. Everything is a conspiracy or a sign pointing to the end.
I cannot imagine living my life filled with this much fear. It is amazing to sit here and watch the mental break down of this guy over the last year or so. I can only imagine how miserable hi family is having to deal with this stupidity all the time. He takes himself far too seriously.
Pope Francis tightens Vatican bank controlsAugust 8, 2013
The Pope recently set up a commission to investigate the bank and report back to him personally…
Pope Francis’s number one priority this summer is to sort out the financial mess at the Vatican bank and a parent body which looks after the financial assets of the Holy See, the BBC’s David Willey reports from Rome.
The new decree is intended to tackle “money-laundering, the financing of terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction”, the Vatican said.
It sets up a financial security committee to coordinate the anti-corruption effort.
Church spokesman Federico Lombardi said the decree would help the Vatican resist “increasingly insidious” forms of international financial crime…

The USA seems to be the country that introduced a lot of financial controls and reporting (spying) at banks within its borders, in these times. Because of its financial influence, this has spread to other countries (where the USA pressures them and/or their banks to provide information to the USA).
While there is nothing obviously nefarious about what Pope Francis is doing (especially, as in his case there reportedly was a lot of Vatican-bank related corruption that he needed to deal with), I cannot help but feel that his actions, combined with those of others nations, are truly a prelude to the fulfillment of the following prophecies:
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.As far as USA espionage goes, there have been articles about how its Drug Enforcement Administration has tapped into various databanks in order to go after Americans. While the USA is NOT the Beast of the sea nor the Beast of the land of Revelation 13, some of its policies and practices are making it easier for those Beasts to rise up.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:16-18)
