I predict that sin and apostasy will increase until God puts a stop to it. I predict that men of power will do anything to stay in power. I predict
that Biblical prophecy will be fulfilled, in brief. Anything else is supposition, theoretical, not a prediction. I assume
JP II will be raised
from the dead by satanic forces because it's just about the only thing I can think of that would make a Jew or Muslim or Buddhist decide to change
their religious beliefs, but it's only an assumption. For all I know, aliens could come down and pretend to be Christ. (The Vatican is not without
UFO sightings.) Someone
is going to pretend to be Christ, and someone else will pretend to be Elijah, and they'll both be satanic. Those are
not assumptions; they're scripture. How
it comes to pass can't be predicted, really. Prophecy exists so we'll recognize it when it happens,
so we'll know what will happen and when.
do you find any merit in the odd occurrences surrounding this whole event? In other words, if you believe it all to be a set up, are you saying
these things are mere coincidence?
Hmmm. Well, it's hardly unusual for lightning to strike a lightning rod. It's not necessarily
a Sign From God (though it sure ain't from
Mary), but it's inappropriate to apply Matthew 24:27 ("so shall the coming of the Son of Man be") to the event, because HIS coming won't be for
quite a while. A lot
has to happen first. The lightning is probably
just coincidence. Who can say?
But I do know (thanks to Revelation 17) that Benedict was the last Pope before the Antichrist. He was the seventh king. In other words, his death or
resignation was always going to mark the beginning of the end, and I've been waiting for it. It all goes to hell any day now. The first Seal is
The question came up earlier as to the origin of the prophecy regarding the last pope being "the son of a turk." I can't seen to find any
information on it except that its "another prophecy." Any idea?
Malachy's prophecy doesn't mention Turks or
a "Black Pope." Let me see if I can find the origin... oh, good lord, it's Nostradamus.
Century 6, quatrain 16:
That which will be carried off by the young Hawk,
By the Normans of France and Picardy:
The black ones of the temple of the Black Forest place
Will make an inn and fire of Lombardy.
How you get from that to "Black Pope" is a mystery to me. I can find nothing
about any prophecy regarding him being the son of the Turks (or
the Ottomans). Maybe people are equating "Black" with "Turkish"... which is silly. But it's all silly, isn't it? Malachy and the Bible have
proven accurate so far; nothing else really has. To me, Bertone is a lot more likely than Turkson, for many
reasons. But time will tell.
