I'll try to make this concise and easy to follow while at the same time providing enough information for you all to mull-over. I want to preface this
thread by stating: NO OFFENSE IS INTENDED TO ANY RELIGIOUSLY-MINDED ATS MEMBERS! This thread is simply my point of view and has nothing to do at all,
really, with God or Jesus, Allah, Shiva, Vishnu, or YHWH.
First: The Prophecy
Another point Weiss raises is the line between the prediction for No. 111 "glory of olive" and No. 112 Petrus Romanus. "It reads, 'In the
extreme persecution in the Holy Roman Church there will sit...' It's an incomplete sentence," Weiss said. "Apparently a lot of scholars believe
that line is an incomplete sentence indicating that there will be unidentified popes between the ["glory of olives"] and Peter the Roman."
1.) While it does say that the 'end' Pope will be 'Peter The Roman'.. my thoughts are, is it possible that it represents the antithesis of the
first Pope, Peter? And thus, all Popes are technically 'Peter the Roman', as they're the head of the Church and are based in Rome [Vatican
2.) There is, indeed, controversy between the 111 Pope and the 112 list, some scholars saying there will be perhaps several popes between them that
are unidentified. Well, we know there is a Peter from Africa that was waiting in the wings for his papal inauguration. Could it be that Francis I will
be a short-lived Pope to be replaced by Peter? Hmm.. interesting..
Second: There is a theory [presumably based off of St. Malachy's prophecy] that the last Pope of the Catholic Church will also be the one who
institutes a One World Religion.
Okay, so he doesn't have the name Peter (which may be just a nominal title for 'Pope' in the prophecy).. but he certainly took the name Francis I,
after St Francis of Assisi, a socio-religious REFORMER.
Though the reform which Francis and the Church accomplished conjointly was above all religious, based on the Gospel and aimed at the conversion
and salvation of man, it was never theless all-comprehensive, including the natural as well as the supernatural, the material as well as the
spiritual in man. It aimed, not at the destruction of existing principles and institutions, but at the repression of abuses com mitted by
individuals, and the triumph of charity and justice among men.
So, if we now have a potentially Reformist Pope and there is a fringe idea that he may be the one to bring about a movement to One World Religion..
then the fact that the prophecy calls for 'Peter the Roman' may very well be inter-changeable with 'The Roman Pope'.
Yes, before anyone can say it.. I myself will: I know it's a stretch! It's WAY out there. Way. Left field? Psh, it's parking-lot material! But how
interesting are the connected dots.. and what if? WHAT IF?
Thanks, ATS, for reading and letting me be a complete conspiracy nut when I feel the urge. Have a great rest of your day!
