Prophecy Sign: The future False Prophet
So the high Priest of all things Catholic is heading into his 4th year at the top of the heap. Now there are rumblings that he could call it quits soon. Even the Pope himself helped to kick off some of the talk as he indicated back in 2013 that he might pack it in by 2017. Why would that be?? Could it be that he isn't even the canonically elected Pope?? There are some within Catholic circles that believe this to be true, and that Pope Francis is the fulfillment of a St. Francis of Assisi prophecy where it was said that an un-elected destroyer of Catholicism would rise to power in the last days, (see article below). Would the resignation of Pope Francis after spending several years building the ecumenical false religious system of the last days bring rise to power the False Prophet of the Tribulation period?? Stayed tuned.
Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. Revelation 13:11-12 NIV
How Long Francis Will Remain Pope — And What’s Keeping Him in the Vatican
One question is on people’s minds as his pontificate enters its fourth year: how long might he last? The answer is not obvious because a pope, unlike many other heads of state, has no fixed term. John Paul I died just one month after his election. The reign of his successor, John Paul II, lasted over 26 years. And Benedict XVI, with his unexpected resignation in 2013, has since widened the duration question to more than one defined by just health and old age.
Pope Francis: I Could Quit Like Benedict or Even Die by 2017
Pope Francis suggested on Monday that he might one day resign the papacy – which would make him the second consecutive pontiff to do so after an almost 600-year gap. The pope said that his predecessor Benedict XVI had opened the door for papal resignations with his decision to stand down last year, the first example since Pope Gregory XII in 1415. “Some theologians may say this is not right, but I think this way,” he said in a lighthearted exchange with reporters returning to Rome from a trip to South Korea. “Let us think about what [Benedict XVI] said, ‘I have got old, I do not have the strength.’ It was a beautiful gesture of nobility, of humility and courage.”
Three Years Of Pope Francis Have Unnerved Some Conservative Catholics
A Dangerously Deluded Pope
Was Pope Francis canonically elected?
Now that Freemasonry has “their man” at the top of the Vatican, we can expect to eventually hear a dissenting reaction from Pope Benedict and his followers, as Francis pursues the Masonic policy of the utter demolition of Catholicism and a radical reform of the Church that would transform it into a Masonic “dogma free Christianity”, and merge it into intercommunion with the other denominations and non-Christian religions. Meanwhile, there is growing awareness among Catholics that “Francis” is increasingly manifesting himself to be exactly what St. Francis of Assisi foretold in his deathbed prophecy — “uncanonically elected”, and, “not a true pastor but a destroyer.”
