‘expert’ says Pope Francis is cryptically warning us that the apocalypse is almost here

Pope Francis recently suggested his reign as pontiff would be brief, setting off speculation by apocalypse watchers that his comments refer to prophetic warnings about the end times.

“It is a vague feeling I have that the Lord chose me for a short mission,” the pope said. “I am always open to that possibility.”



I wonder what the reason is for this current surge of doom pornography?




Tom Horn, author of the 2012 book “Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here,” told World Net Daily the pontiff’s comments suggest that he may see himself as the last pope — as foretold in St. Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes.”

The 12th-century Irish archbishop is believed to have predicted 112 more popes before the Last Judgment, although most scholars now believe his “Doomsday Prophecy” was a 16th-century hoax concocted to help a cardinal win election.

Horn argues that the medieval prophecy – in addition to others – predicts a final pope, known as “Peter the Roman,” whose reign would end with the destruction of Rome and Judgment Day.


Here's where it get interesting....




Horn argues that Pope Francis may also believe his fate was revealed to three Portuguese children in 1917 through a vision of the Virgin Mary at Fátima.

“There is a great deal of controversy over whether the third secret was ever completely released by the Vatican, but part of what was released describes a city, which some believe to be the Vatican City,” he said. “The city is attacked and many priests, including the pope (described as the ‘Bishop in White’), are killed by fighters who could easily be interpreted as members of ISIS.”


ISIS playing a part in Armageddon? Is this Biblical prophesy?

Islam is regarded as an Abrahamic faith in that it has roots in the same traditions and theology as Judaism and Christianity. Islam uses and reveres many of the same figures of the Torah and the Bible and then builds on them with the Koran and Hadith although their roles are often not exactly the same with the same stories being told in differing ways.

The End Times of Islam dovetails in interesting ways with the End Times of Revelation for example.

So, assuming you believe in the prophecies of the Catholic Church which are another branch of eschatology entirely ... yes, ISIS (or Islam in general) could very much play a role in the End Times. Remember, ISIS believes they are supposed to be playing and active part in bringing about the End Times.

So it all presents an interesting convergence. After all, the Pope's timing of a three-year window before his retirement puts him at the potential mid-point in some timelines. That would be when the One World system is declared and widespread persecution of anyone who refuses the mark would begin.

I'll agree. Let's get it over with instead of leaving it stand over our heads. I'll bring some cinnamon toast and coffee. Better than bread and wine.

If this happens, are those who believe in the non-muslim version of god going to accept their god is useless if he can't even help his subjects avoid a pre-ordained event, or are they going to double down on their idiocy and insist it was meant to be and and he works in mysterious ways?

Those who pay attention will know the times at that point. We'll know exactly when He will set things straight.

Yeah but what does the church know...

They've been predicting the "end times" for 2000 years... and failing the whole time...

You've just described how Islamic faith is just an offshoot of an earlier Abrahamic version of religious ideology, and then you act like it's some sort of surprise that their version of the End Times tallies with the other one. What's that about?

Francis is just talking about his own mortality, not a worldwide doom scenario. Maybe he feels he won't live many more years, but with the health care he's probably getting he may tack on another ten or so. As for the author, money falls from the sky when you publish a doom and gloom book....very telling about human psychology if you ask me (and no one has).

You misunderstand me I think.

I'm not surprised by it at all - just pointing out how the changes still produce an interesting result. They could completely clash, but they don't. Considering that one theology is an aggressive one that seeks to completely replace the other two, you wouldn't have thought that Mohammad would particularly care if his new faith clashed entirely with the predecessors in places. After all, the whole point of Islam is that it's supposed to be the re-establishment of the correct way, so why can't it completely clash with the other two in places?

I wasn't aware that the Catholic Church was in the habit of setting doom predictions. Now, there have been random pastors who think they can set dates from time to time, but they are hardly "the Church" as a whole body.

Well IF we go by whom most of the church world follows... Paul

The church is the body of believers... so they're all responsible for such doom prophecies...

So that was a general statement... Christianity as a whole has been predicting the end since the beginning

My favorite of the doom and gloom set are the "Jehovah Witnesses" I think their latest date is 2034 for Armageddon.

Poe0le have a bad eye when seeing;

Prophecy

And

Orchastration.

What is happening on the world.scene is by design of those in control. Isis doesn't exist and doesn't do what it is said it does, IF IT WERE NOT FUNDED AND GIVEN A DESIGN TO FOLLOW..

Prophecy is.more.metaphysical nature. Orchastrating is pure will and intent.

See the difference? Isis is meant to chaos by design, order, and funding

When the entire last book of the Bible deals with the subject ... it's a little hard to avoid.

But it's not like we're unique. Just about very religion and mythology out there has it's own version of the End Times. Heck even the environmentalists have their own doom criers.

It seems to be the universal idea that nothing lasts forever.

All right, when is orchestration orchestration and when is it metaphysical?

If you go by the idea that nothing happens except by His will, then nothing happens unless it is allowed, so even if ISIS is orchestrated and brings about when appears to be prophetic events ... then did He allow it to go forward by design? Or is it only prophetic if He takes an active hand and you see the so-called Finger of God at work?

I like the idea of Harry Potter for this one. Voldemort chose his adversary according to prophecy. There were two possible "Harries" - Harry and Neville. Each one had all the characteristics of prophecy, so which would be the one to end Voldemort? It was up to Voldemort to make a move on one of the two and choose which it was. In that sense, that part of the prophecy was orchestrated. In seeking to avert it, Voldemort sealed it.

So, in similar fashion, if the prophecy is fulfilled, can you really say that it is counterfeit? How do you know if it is? Are you willing to bet on it?

I'm far from being a prophet...but I do consider myself a halfassed futurist.

My prediction is that after the Bushes regain the WH and the ME wars start up again in earnest; It won't be Armageddon but it will damn sure look like it.

And Daniel? The other prophets? What about the Gospels? They all reference the same events.

That's what I said... They've been predicting the end since the beginning...

Doesn't mean its gonna happen... but obviously there will be an end, so its not even a prediction its just reality

One day our sun will go dark, and all life on this planet will cease to exist...

that is if we don't destroy ourselves first...

Putting too much faith in kings and goat herders from ancient times isn't usually the best way to live
