St. Malachy or is it St. Malachi? End Times Bible Prophecies Concerning the Catholic Church and Next Pope...
St Malachy, St Malachi, Saint Malachy, Saint Malachi...
One of the most fascinating end times prophecies ever made was the last popes prophecy of St. Malachy or St. Malachi in the year 1139… Malachy was an Irish monk who suddenly had a vision in front of his eyes of a long series of Latin phrases that signified short descriptions of the last 111 popes from his time to the end times, or to the last pope. He was so inspired that he wrote everything down on paper and delivered it to Pope Innocent II in Rome while on a visit. This information was apparently lost for about 400 years in the Vatican Library, but surfaced later on and was published for all to read. An interesting side note about St. Malachy or Malachi is that he predicted the date of his own death, November 2, 1148 in France!
This list of 111 popes from St. Malachi’s time to the last pope is extraordinary because of the accuracy of all the descriptions about these popes! It did not list them by name, but instead by a description such as “Glory of the Olive”, but in Latin. For instance, John Paul II was described as being “The labor of the sun”, and he was both born and died during eclipses of the sun… Pope Benedict (the current pope) was described as being “The Glory of the Olive”, and his pope name became Benedict which is from the Benedictine Order… Guess what, that order has as its symbol the olive!
Care to guess where on the list we presently are with the number of popes? Pope Benedict is the last one on the list, number 111! He is the last pope to be officially numbered on the list by St. Malachy, but he also named one last pope after Benedict… This is the pope that will rule during the Tribulation period, or the last days, and his name will be “Peter the Roman”. "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."
St. Malachi Prophecies and the Catholic Church...
Because this last pope was not numbered like the rest, some people believe that it could involve Pope Benedict, who may change his name at some point. But I believe that it is speaking of the next pope, number 112… Pope Benedict will be 84 years old this year in 2011, so he’s not as spry as he used to be. When he’s gone, they will have to elect a new pope at the Vatican, and he will either choose the name of Peter and be an Italian, or he may change his name at some point later on. He will probably be Italian, but he also just may be called Peter the Roman because he resides in Rome as the pope…
This last pope will preside over the Catholic faith during the last days of tribulation, at which time there will be great persecution by the world and a war that may include nuclear weapons. There will be a great falling away of faith in the Catholic faith, and it appears to be happening in the church today. First of all, I want to definitely let everyone realize the big difference between the Catholic Church and the Protestant Christians… They are not one and the same, even though many non-Christians believe that the Catholics are the main body. They may have actually started that way 2,000 years ago, but over the centuries the Catholic Church has gotten incredibly corrupt and evil, as does any organization created by mankind. This is the nature of man, and there have been many evil and corrupt popes throughout the years that have killed millions of people through the Inquisitions and other reasons. Most of them had the sole crime of reading their Bible, which the church did not permit. Once the printing press was invented, Bibles were getting into the hands of many of the faithful everywhere, and once they started reading what was in there they soon realized that what the Catholic Church was teaching them was wrong.
The Catholic priests want to be the ones instructing you in Mass, and not having you read what is in there for yourself. They can’t control you if you are reading, and even today the congregation does not bring their own Bible to Mass. They are provided with “readings” from the Bible that are written in pamphlets inserted in the Pews. Once the people had access to Bibles and could read what was in them for themselves, they soon broke off into other denominations and became “Protestants” to protest the Catholic Church.
What Do the St. Malachy Prophesies Mean?
I believe that the Catholic Church has become so huge and inflated today, that it’s loaded with incredibly corrupt priests and administration people in their midst… We can see what the celibacy rule has done for them, with all the accusations of homosexuality and pedophilia everywhere. The members are more or less walking zombies and most of them have no concept of what it means to be a Christian. They just go through the motions with attending Mass and functions, but they do not believe in the last days or Revelation period described in the Bible. There is a whole chapter in the Bible called Revelations, but they don’t believe it to be relevant to any end days scenario. To be a believer in Jesus, there has to be an end game! I mean, what’s the point in being a Christian if you have no concept of what is going to happen according to Bible prophecy?
The popes throughout this and last century have constantly spouted “world peace” and “the new world order” with various speeches, but this is totally opposite of what the Bible teaches! The Bible says that there will be no peace without the return of Jesus on Earth, but they keep trying to make Israel bow to the muslim countries with many concessions of land and other means. The Bible does not teach this, but yet the popes are trying to help bring in the “new world order”… That is the domain of the anti-Christ, which will hasten the last days before Jesus comes back. It is all written down in the Bible, but they do not teach this to their congregations. And their belief is if the priests don’t teach it, they don’t have to worry about it! Wow! Listen to St. Malachi, who just happened to be a Catholic…
The reason I bring this up is that it pertains to the St. Malachi prophecies because the falling away could have something to do with the corruption in the church. Pope John Paul I, the one who was only a pope for 33 days back in 1978, was surely murdered by evil forces that were against him in the Vatican. He was just about to turn the Vatican upside down on its head the day after he died in bed, but his enemies made sure that he never awoke. He was probably poisoned in his nightly cup of tea or cocoa, and where as just about all popes go through an intensive ceremony of burial which can last many days, Pope John Paul I was cremated without an autopsy within 24 hours of his death! It doesn’t take a genius to realize that something funny was going on, but as usual the Catholic Church does not talk about such things. They sweep matters such as this under the rug.
This is one of the reasons why I believe they play a big component in the creation of the coming new world order. Pope John Paul II has spoken of it many times, in addition to many world leaders. It is coming soon, maybe sooner than we like. A one world government will come into place, and I believe they have everything in place right now but they are just waiting for the right “crisis” situation, such as worldwide financial failures… St. Malachi gave us his prophecy concerning the last popes, and we can see the end in sight! Even if Pope Benedict lasts another 10 years or so, and the next pope reigns for 15 years before things get bad, we are still looking at no more than 25 years before the Rapture in my opinion! It’s exciting!
