Papal Resignation, Malachy "Prophecy," and the Coming Tribulation

Saying goodbye to another Pope.
Saying goodbye to another Pope.

For the Levites left their common lands and their holdings and came to Judah and Jerusalem, because Jeroboam and his sons cast them out from serving as priests of the LORD, and HE APPOINTED HIS OWN PRIESTS FOR THE HIGH PLACES AND FOR THE GOAT IDOLS AND FOR THE CALVES THAT HE HAD MADE. - 2 Chronicles 11:14-15

Bye, bye.
Bye, bye.

The headlines have announced the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI due to his lack of physical and mental abilities to fulfill his duties. As this decision has swept through the headlines, there is a supposed "prophecy" that was written over nine-hundred years ago by a man named Malachy who was a 12th century Irish monk. He received a prophetic revelation that he committed to paper that has been accurate so far, concerning the succession of the Popes leading the ushering in a time of tribulation time spoken of in the book of Revelation in the Bible.

This article will explore who Saint Malachy was, the interesting facts about his life, the interesting accuracy of the written predictions relating to the succession of Popes to the headlines of today, and the end time prophecy in book Revelation. Is this all just mere coincidence, or is there much more to it? It is up to you to decide.

The Story of Malachy

The evidence of who Malachy was can be traced to the writings of Saint Bernard, who was one of his contemporaries. Malachy was ordained as a priest by Ceallach, who was the Archbishop of Armagh in 1119. At the age of twenty-five, Malachy was accepted for the priesthood even though the prescribed age was over thirty. The exception was due for his notable character and devotion to his duties.

After his ordination, Malachy went to Lismore to study theology and trained for public religious worship under St. Malchus. He believed he did not have sufficient preparation yet for his duties under Ceallach. After his studies, the Archbishop sent him out to preach the Word of God and correct the apostasy that crept into the Catholic Church.

Malachy established regulations for celibacy and other regulations for the clergy as well as sending out priests to instruct and educate the peasants of that day. In 1123, he returned to his homeland of Armagh and was given authority after his uncle resigned over the Abbey of Bangor. He ruled it for over a year and rebuilt the abbey and established a seminary there.

When Malachy turned thirty, he was chosen to become the Bishop of Connor and staffed a diocese under his care. It was during this time that Malachy’s instructor, Archbishop Ceallach, passed away and named him successor to his position. The position was not a “shoo-in” as Ceallach’s extended family wanted a cousin, Murtagh to have the position. Although by right, Malachy could have taken the position, he refused because of fear that bloodshed would come from Ceallach’s relatives. For the next three years he did not take up the position until he was threatened with excommunication unless he formally took up the position. He eventually conceded and took the position of the Archbishop of Armagh, but refused to enter the cathedral, or the city but chose to rule from the outside. Murtagh was the “false” Archbishop who had already been installed from the inside. It was due to the secular rulers and corruption within the church that refused to acknowledge Malachy as the real Archbishop.

In 1134, Murtagh died and his brother Nigellus, who was Ceallach’s brother took over as the "inside" Archbishop of Armagh. He and his friends also did not recognize Malachy’s legitimate position and claim that was rightfully his. Finally, a battle broke out between the two, and Malachy won as his opposition did not realize that he had a stronger armed militia. From this victory, Malachy broke the tradition of succession by blood relatives. In that day, most of the enviable positions were given to hereditary family members whether they were qualified or not. Many families in Europe were able to obtain great power and wealth due to this practice. Malachy realized the corruption of money and power that had superseded religion, and his goal was to change that. He succeeded in removing the oppression of power and greed from these intolerable families. Discipline and morality was once again restored, and peace came back to Armagh.

In 1139, Malachy resigned his position and appointed Gelasius of Derry as the new Archbishop. After the succession, Malachy made a trip to Rome to give an account of his diocese to Pope Innocent II. The journey would prove to be a difficult one as he would have to travel through Scotland, England, and France. Along the way, Malachy apparently received a vision of the succession of Popes starting with Pope Innocent II leading to the destruction of the Vatican City, and the time of the False Prophet as prophesied in the book Revelation.

The Evidence

1591 Lignum Vitae, p.311

The Modern Papacy
The Modern Papacy

From the list of one hundred and twelve Popes that were written down by Malachy, the validity and accuracy of his revelation are quite accurate when examining their traits. This article will refer to the twenty, and twenty-first century Popes leading up to the resignation of the one hundred and eleventh, Pope Benedict XVI. By referencing page 311 from the 1591 Lignum Vitae, the descriptive meanings given to each Pope appear to be accurate in their description.

“Luminen in caelo,” which means lights in the heavens, refers to Pope Leo XIII (1878 – 1903). He was known for his intellectualism who added to the Catholic theology and brought important reforms to the clergy and laity. He embraced Mary as being the co-mediator with Jesus Christ. Because of his intellectual prowess, Pope Leo XIII had true inner “light.”

Pope Pius X (1903-1914) was referred to as “Ignus Ardens,” which means ardent fire. He had a burning passion to bring spiritual renewal, but opposed and fought against modernism that was infiltrating the Catholic Church. He was canonized as a saint on May 29, 1954, and his body is known for having an almost perfect preservation without being embalmed, which many people claim to be a sign of his sainthood.

“Religio depopulate” means the depopulation, or destruction of religion. During Pope Benedict’s rule (1914- 1922) millions of Catholics and Christians were murdered during the Bolshevik revolution of 1914. Additionally, millions more people died because of the influenza pandemic during his papacy. The Pope saw great religious population through Communism and disease that took so many lives. He also believed Mary as being the co-Redeemer with Jesus Christ.

Pope Pius XI (1922-1939) is referred to as “Fides Interpida,” which means intrepid faith. The Pope was outspoken against the German and Italian fascism that put political and religious pressure on him. Adolph Hitler was furious with him because he was vehemently against Communism and Nazism. Through the Lateran Treaty of 1929, the Pope established The Papacy as the Head of State, and the Vatican City as a country.

Pope Pius XII (1939-1958) was known for having a true heart of a pastor and being deeply spiritual. “Pastor Angelicus” means angelic shepherd. This Pope is reported to have had visions, but none have been yet revealed.

Pope John XXIII (1958-1963) was referred to as “Pastor et Nauta,” which means shepherd and sailor. He was considered the true pastor, or shepherd of Roman Catholicism. Before he become Pope, he was known as the “Patriarch of Venice,” which was a city on the sea.

“Flos Florum” means flower of flowers and refers to Pope Paul (1963-1968). The Pope’s coat of arms had three iris blossoms on it. In the Catholic religion the fleur-de-lis means purity and chastity. The Pope proclaimed Mary to be the mother of the Church.

John Paul 1 (1978) ruled for only thirty days. He was referred to as “De medietate lunae,” which means from the midst of the moon. He was born during the day of the “half-moon” on October 17, 1912 and elected as Pope on August 26, 1978, which also was when there was a “half-moon.” Although his papacy was short-lived to thirty days, it is not short of intrigue and mystery because he died unexpectedly. What was revealed during his rule was that a number of Cardinals belonged to a secret Masonic Lodge known as P-2, which can be traced back to 1877. P-2 had become involved in a financial scandal where many heads of people in many areas of society where found to be listed as members. Pope John I was behind this investigation and wanted to dismiss any high ranking members in the Church who were revealed to be Freemasons. The mystery behind his death is shrouded in the coincidence behind the dismissals and replacements of the P-2 members in the Church. It hasn't been proven, but the ancient art of poisoning known as veneficia is rumored to be the method of operation in the "murder" of the Pope via the Illuminati.

“De Labore Solis,” which means the labor of the sun, references Pope John Paul II (1978-2005) who was born during a solar eclipse. After his death, he was entombed when the sun was eclipsed. On the night of Beltane, he was beatified on May 1, 2011.

The resigning Pope Benedict XVI (2005- February 2013), who is referred to as “Gloria Olivae,” means glory of the olive. By the choice of Benedict XVI, he became connected with the symbol of the olive branch, which has connections to the Benedictine monks.

Vatican City
Vatican City

By referencing the text on page 311 in the 1591 Lignum Vitae, the prophecy of Malachy refers to the last Pope that can be read on the right side of the page. It reads,

“In persecution extrema S.R.E. sedebit Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oves in multis tribulationbus: quibus transactis civitas spticollis diruetur, & Judex tremedus judicabit populum suum. Finis.”

Seven Hills of Rome
Seven Hills of Rome

The translation is,

“In extreme persecution, the Seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of the seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.”

What can be deduced from Malachy’s "prophecy," is that he has been pretty accurate so far. What remains to be seen is that the next elected Supreme Pontiff (112th Pope) of the Roman Catholic Church could be additional evidence for the start of the tribulation period leading to the false prophet as foretold in the book of Revelation in the Bible.

Malachy wrote, “the city of the seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people.

Are There Scriptural Parallels?

Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, THAT GREAT CITY BABYLON, THAT MIGHTY CITY! FOR IN ONE HOUR IS THY JUDGEMENT COME. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. – Revelation 18:10-13

Throughout history it has been evident that the Catholic Church has spent billions of dollars on the vast array of items spoken of in the above verses in Revelation. Additionally, they are the only religion who believes that they have the power over the souls of men. Catholic priests believe that they have the power through excommunication to send someone to heaven, or hell.

And hereis the mind which hath wisdom. THE SEVEN HEADS ARE SEVEN MOUNTAINS, on which the woman sitteth.– Revelation 17:9

The word, mountains, is oros in Greek, which can be rendered to hills. So in terms of a geographical location, the “mother of harlots” is located in the area of the seven hills.

FOR IN ONE HOUR SO GREAT RICHES IS COME TO NOUGHT. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, AND CRIED WHEN THEY SAW THE SMOKE OF HER BURNING, saying, What city is like unto this great city!And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, ALAS, ALAS, THAT GREAT CITY wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! FOR IN ONE HOUR IS SHE MADE DESOLATE. – Revelation 18:17

The Roman Catholic religion is one of the largest ancient mystery Babylonian religions in the world.

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were ALL NATIONS DECEIVED. – Revelation 18:23

The false prophet identified in Revelation is a person who will be able to perform great signs and wonders, and even be able to call fire down from heaven. Similarly, the apostate modern church system with their false prophets are able to perform counterfeit signs and wonders. These false prophets are deceiving the masses by making an image to the beast to get them to worship it.

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men

And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should MAKE AN IMAGE TO THE BEAST, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to GIVE LIFE UNTO THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. – Revelation 13:11-15

The evidence is pretty compelling and through history God has always given multiple confirmation to the followers of His Word to tell them about His plans and what He is going to do.

  • Was Malachy used by God to predict a time of the tribulation?
  • Is the evidence compelling enough to dig deeper, peruse, and compare and contrast his vision with history and what is happening today?

The true standard about a true prophet of God must be upheld first and foremost in God’s Holy Word.

And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, IF THE THING FOLLOW NOT, NOR COME TO PASS, THAT IS THE THING WHICH THE LORD HATH NOT SPOKEN, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. – Deuteronomy 18:21-22

Points to Consider

The Bible says that those who are true prophets of God are completely accurate.

  • Was Malachy a true and genuine follower of Jesus Christ looking to do the will of God?

Malachy’s predictions seem accurate enough to give them some thought. We are living in dynamic times and the headlines attest to leading up to the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is important to understand the image of the beast and the system that it endorses. The Catholic Church and her harlots today have taken on the image of the beast by syncretizing with ancient Babylonian forms of worship to God. This is an abomination and is not compatible with the standard of Scripture we are to follow. Taking heed to what is going on in the world today, and also weighing and testing EVERYTHING that is going on within the modern man-driven church system is important. There is a great need to arm ourselves with the truth of God’s Word by preparing, being ready and promoting the genuine Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Many will be watching to see who will be the leading candidate to replace Pope Benedict. One of the leading candidates is Italy's Cardinal, who is Tarcisio Pietro Evasio Bertone. He was born in Romano Italy with his birth name of Pietro (Peter). Additionally, Ghana's Cardinal, Peter Turkson is called Peter the Roman by the people.

  • Will Pietro, or Peter be favored as a successor?

We shall soon see at the next appointment.

There are many differing opinions from historians to skeptics.

  • Does the evidence support that St. Malachy had a legitimate prophetic revelation from God?
  • Was the written prophecy penned by him, and is the evidence compelling enough to warrant a closer look?
  • Is the Catholic Church the Mother of Harlots?

These are just a few questions of many that should pique further investigation.

We must remember that true prophecy according to Scripture is the forth-telling of the very will of God of the past, present and future summed up in the consummation of God’s eternal purpose through Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will help guide us into all truth.

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in THESE LAST DAYS has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. - Hebrews 1:1-2

We must filter everything through the Word of God. There is no extra biblical revelation. It had been competed and summed up in Jesus Christ; therefore, we must take any supposed "prophecy" such as Malachy's and filter it through the Word of God.

Do you believe Malachy's vision lines up with prophecy of Scripture, or do you deem it as extra-biblical and discard it?

I am not a fan of preterism. Revelation was written about 93-96AD. The destruction of the whore was written as a future event.

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. - Revelation 17:10

I would like to make it clear to the reading audience that I believe that "Jerusalem" is the great harlot, and the Catholic Church is the "daughter," one part of her.

This would only make sense if Jerusalem is not seen as a literal city, but in a spiritual context. The spiritual whore, or the great harlot would encompass all the false apostate worship of the modern churches, which has perverted the Gospel and true worship to Jesus Christ. They have turned turn to the kings of the earth (man-made ideologies) for their security and "salvation" instead of turning to God. The Catholic Church would be considered the "daughter" of the whore, with similar characteristics to the great whore.

Babylon is an appropriate name for the fallen spiritual "Jerusalem." Perverted worship can be traced all the way back to Genesis 11. Babylon wanted to attain the "heavens” through their own perverted ways instead of God's ways. This is happening even today in the modern church.

O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee. - Daniel 9:8

The modern Church has set up their own "Tower of Babel," which can be described as the people who want to rule their own way in opposition to God.

The Great Harlot (corrupt wealth, international money lenders provides an illusion of wealth and those who fornicate with her. They are are borrowing money from her, which means attaining false form of “wealth.” Through her control, she deceives spiritually (debt equates to slavery). When the Harlot is destroyed, it will pave the conditions to the one-world system, and worship to the beast.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. – Revelation 17:16

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. – Revelation 17:5

The mystery in the above verse reveals that it is a mystery, and what is going on in the world today is unveiling more and more of that mystery.

SwordofManticorE,

I hope you understand that this not my prophecy, but an article exploring what Malachy wrote down.

I am not Catholic; therefore, whoever is Pope is not my Pope. We both won't know if the full "prophecy" is correct until the next Pope is revealed. If Malachy is incorrect, he will not be around to give you an "excuse."

I really enjoyed this article! I think that Pope Benedict has something to do with the Illuminati. I hate to say that, but I think it's true! He looks very scary! I think he is into something that is definitely not good. I heard that there were abuse allegations brought against him, and that was why he was stepping down. Turkson just may BE the next Pope. Who knows?

Many people also think that Babylon as mentioned in Revelation is actually the USA. I was wondering what you think?

Very nice article! There is so much information in it. I had heard of this prophecy before and wondered about the validity of it, but it's kind of interesting that Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down already! That sure does fit with the prophecy! I just keep on praying to my Lord Jesus! He is our only way out of this mess!

PlanksandNails 3 years ago from among the called out of the ekklesia of Christ Author

Danast,

I believe the Whore of Babylon is the corrupt monetary system that the world is run on. Most of mankind are slaves to her oppression (debt). Additionally, the apostasy in the modern churches are run on the same corrupt principles of this greedy system. Different masks, but the same whore behind it. The USA is one of many countries that are bound to the whore. Once the world spirals out of control in her corrupt system, the Antichrist will come on the scene as a "savior" who will promise release from it. Many will beg to be relieved of her, but it will be at a cost of taking the mark of the beast.

We are living in interesting times with a lot going on in the world. What is important is to remain alert, connect the dots, and spend time in the book of Daniel and Revelation and see their relevance for today.

I have written a series of articles that I think you may find relevant to what God is saying to His people today.

Danast 3 years ago from Wichita, Kansas

PlanksandNails,

Wow! That is a very interesting view. I definitely know that our corrupt monetary system and government are very evil. The reason I asked about Babylon is because many say that it is the Vatican, and many say that it is the United States. I think that it is important to look at the thing that is constant behind all of these systems. As the old saying goes, "Money is the root of all evil."

I appreciate your articles. I just keep on praying to God and reading the Word of God. I have read Revelation more than once, and just when I think I've got it, I realize how small I am compared to the Word of our Savior. I think, "Now, could it be this, or is it that?" God's Word never changes, but man's perceptions and beliefs do. I have so much to learn! God is moving through our world and this spiritual battle is coming to a head before our very eyes! Yes, these are scary times. There is so much demonic activity going on right now.

Luke 17:26 "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man."

I have also read the book of Isaiah recently. God's judgment is upon us. God is not an angry God, but nevertheless, He does get angry! God does exhibit wrath upon the people, and His wrath is just.

I will check out those articles on that particular link!

Thank you, brother!

Blessings in Christ!

Well the new pope is not Petrus Romulus, it is Francis I. So I see nothing that says this vision the Irish bishop had will come true.


PlanksandNails profile image

PlanksandNails 3 years ago from among the called out of the ekklesia of Christ Author

SoM,

You are right, his name is not literally Petrus Romulus, but that does not mean the prophecy has not been fulfilled. "Peter the Roman" was most likely to be symbolic of describing his pontificate anyway.

Here are some significant facts:

Pope Francis 1 ancestry is Italian and he is the first Jesuit pope. He can be called the "Black Pope" because the Jesuits vestments and regalia are black. What is significant is that the Jesuit order has always been to assert papal supremacy over the whole world. Their agenda is that the Roman Catholic faith, and the Catholic Church to have authority over all "Christians" and people of the world. The Jesuits are legendary for their torture methods throughout history. Even Hitler stated that he learned much from them. The Jesuits have murdered millions of genuine Christians over the centuries.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio chose the name Francis in tribute to Francis Assisi. Francis Assisi's long name was born as Francesco di **Pietro** di Bernardone.

Additionally, the new pope is wearing a ring that depicts St. Peter the fisherman on it. The new pope is a Jesuit, which equates to a Black Pope who has Italian genetics. "Peter the Roman" seems to fit.

Those who have a shallow understanding will not look for and research any significant evidence for themselves, but will simply write off Malachy's vision as "failed."

It should also be obvious that the descriptions of all the pontificates pertaining to Malachy's "prophecy" were not revealed all on their first days of papacy. I believe more evidence will be revealed.

We will have to wait and see where this Jesuit pope will lead the Catholic Church. My hunch is toward a universal doctrine, or one world religion.

The "address" under your first picture should be 2 Chronicles, not 2 Corinthians.

God completed His revelation to mankind with the book of Revelation. Any "prophecy" occurring after the first century does not come from God.

The Scripture says that "the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil"; it does not say that "money is the root of all evil."

Having said these things, I agree that you may indeed be correct that the RCC is Babylon the Great.

PlanksandNails 2 years ago from among the called out of the ekklesia of Christ Author

Glynch1,

Corrections made.

I agree with your point that God completed His revelation to mankind with the book of Revelation; therefore, Malachy's "prophecy" must remain in quotations and must be deemed as not from God.

You reference to the old saying, "money is the root of all evil" was from Danast, but nonetheless, I agree with you.

Thank-you for perusing the article. God Bless.

The love of money is the root of all evil and money can be the root of all evil. See 1Timothy6:10 This goofy Jesuit pope was born 100% Italian to 100% Italian parents in Argentina. He allegedly participated in child-trafficking of boys to Canada. False Prophet Francis is a member of The Ninth Circle Luciferian cult as is former Hitler-Youth Benedict. Their initiation included raping a boy & a girl and drinking innocent blood of a sacrificed baby. Kenyan-born BHO is the man of lawlessness predicted in the Bible. Not even birther-Trump can save us now. Jesus provides our ONLY means of salvation.

Doesn't Jesus say if anyone comes after me prophesying, do not listen to him.? Malachi's vision could not have come from God. Visions given to Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar were before Christ. Anyone after is a false prophet. Btw, love your articles. I've read them all and I've never heard anyone use the scriptures so elegantly and precise before. You truly have a better understanding of what is meant in scripture then 95% of preachers or self titled men. Your articles on the trinity are amazing!! One cannot argue at all, that God is a triune God, the way you Break it down.

I'm sure you and I would agree that we must always go the Word of God for our standard for truth and not put heavy reliance on secular information. Although this article was written based on an extra-biblical source, it was meant to be informative in the context of something to weigh, test, scrutinize and question. I have amended the end of the article to clarify this. The points you have brought up are valid and I appreciate you stating them.

I am glad you appreciate my articles and I hope your encouraged in your walk with Jesus Christ.

God Bless.

In Luke 10:18 Jesus said "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”

in Hebrew BARAK O BAMAH means 'lightning from heaven'.

Any questions?


Rich kelley profile image

Rich kelley 8 months ago from The Ekklesia

I tried several English to Hebrew translators and none of them verify that BARAK O BAMAH means lightning from heaven.

In reality his entire name could be translated to mean

Barack = blessed

Hussein = good or handsome one

Obama = to lean or bend


Sgt Prepper profile image

Sgt Prepper 8 months ago from Elkhorn, WI

Indeed Lucifer was the most handsome angel. If you refer to Strong's Hebrew Lexicon you will find words #1299 - 1301 are BARAK, BARAQ & BAWRAK and they all mean 'lightning'. The word #1116 BAMAH means 'heaven, high place, on high & lower part of heaven OR place of idol-worship'. Once the so-called "fatal blow" occurs Bathhouse Barry will become inhabited by the devil himself and head the UN as Secretary-General & king of the world. It won't be pretty then.
