…The media and Catholic faithful have been celebrating his choice of the papal name Francis, which is a first, and most folks assume it is inspired by St. Francis of Assisi. Interestingly, in Petrus Romanus we wrote of an apocalyptic prophecy given by the alleged namesake:
Even Saint Francis of Assisi—one of the most venerated religious figures in history—gathered his devotees shortly before his death and prophesied that: “At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death… Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it…for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.”
Was there something uncannonical about the election of Pope Francis I? It seems arguable. For starters, Pope Benedict XVI simply retiring makes for an unprecedented situation. Next, the fifteen day rule between the vacancy of the office and the start of the conclave was circumvented in order to speed up the process. The two living popes situation alone supports a charge of one “not canonically elected” but more mysteriously, there seems to be something fishy going on with his heraldry. According to one expert, “As can be seen on the coat of arms, he was not a bishop, despite being cardinal.”
Is Cardinal Bergoglio the last Pope according to Malachy’s prophecy – Petrus Romanus? .
The new Pope is a Jesuit from Argentina….not a “roman”, not a “Peter”.
But Petrus can also mean “rock”.
This Pope will be the first Pope to have his throne in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is the seat of THE DOME OF THE ROCK!!!! The Dome of the Rock is the major Islamic sacred site at the Temple Mount.
However, the Temple Mount is the seat of contention and war…
“…The Temple Mount area where the Dome of the Rock is located is important to not only the Muslims who control it now, but also to Jews and Christians. As the place where the Jewish Temple once stood, the Temple Mount is considered to be the holiest place in Judaism and is the place where Jews and some Christians believe that the third and final temple will be built. This area is also the third holiest site in Islam. Because of its importance to both Jews and Muslims, the Temple Mount area is a highly contested religious site over which both the Palestinian Authority and Israel claim sovereignty…”
The Vatican is moving the throne of the Papacy to Jerusalem. Francis I will be the first Pope to sit there. Is it to claim these sites? Are we looking at the final move of globalist religion?
Also, it is interesting to note the significance of the name Francis I. The Franciscans are the order that are the “custodians of the Holy Land. ”
Time will tell….God certainly has planned out an amazingly elaborate ,complicated and perfect playing out and unraveling of all the events that are written in Scripture and spoken through the prophets He has chosen.
He is the Pope (the Roman) that will be at the Rock (The Dome of the Rock).
That is the only connection I can see at the moment…Time will tell
Cardinal Mahony, who retired in 2011, was accused of helping a confessed paedophile priest evade law enforcement by sending him out of state to a church-run treatment centre.
The disgraced former priest – named as Michael Baker – was later placed back in the Los Angeles ministry.
He was convicted in 2007 and sent to prison on sex abuse charges involving two boys.
The latest agreement concerns four other cases between the 1970s and the late 1990s.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, its former leader Cardinal Roger Mahony and the ex-priest have now agreed to settle four child sex abuse cases brought against them, lawyers for the victims said.
The plaintiffs’ lawyer Vince Finaldi said the settlement comes “as close to an admission of guilt as you’re going to get from the archdiocese”.
Clergy were not legally required under California law to report suspected child abuse to authorities until 1997.
As I was washing dishes after lunch I was pondering the Conclave at the Vatican and a news article I saw in the last 24 hours about the expectation of a new Pope by Friday…. The phrase, ‘Beware the Ides of March’ popped into my head.
Having learned to pay attention to the gentle whisper, I ran to the calender and was shocked to see Friday as the Ides (15th) of March… Now, this may mean NOTHING, or it may be an interesting point to add to the prophecy laden days we’ve had in recent weeks….
If the Pope is s/elected on Friday the 15th of March, that would be an interesting omen if indeed he is Petrus Romanus.
“From my own personal experience I cannot have such anti-Islamic fears, nor can I ever buy into anti-Islamic propaganda or scaremongering. I come from a family that has an Islamic component. My paternal uncle was a Muslim. We lived together; we don’t have any trace of fear of Islam in my family. My mother was a Methodist, my father a Catholic. This is the inter-religious family and context in which I grew up”, he said.
Is there a Petrus Romanus? Is it the Interim leader of the Vatican? What secrets are being witheld from us? Did Benedict do this to fulfill the prophecy? Will the prophecy be fulfilled in approximately 2 weeks from now? If Petrus Romanus ends up as Pope, he will be the last pope. End Times?
First the Pope resigns, a throne of the Vatican awaits the new Pope that has yet to be chosen in Jerusalem. A prophecy uttered by Malachy so many centuries ago looms over us, claiming that Petrus Romanus will be the last Pope. Who will be the next Pope? What will happen during his reign?
Tom Horn brought the resignation of Pope Benedict to light in his book, prophetically stating that he would resign long before these events transpired.
But there is more…..
Tom Horn is bringing to light more information about the Vatican and aliens. His new book is coming out in April 2013 called Exo-Vaticana.
Is there a conspiracy to bring an “alien false messiah’ truly in the works?
What is going on in the Vatican’s observatory in Arizona that is manned by Jesuits?
Did you know that next door to the observatory is a tremendous (perhaps the world’s largest) telescope?
And its called ” LUCIFER” (which is the acronym chosen for Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research).

In light of the way world events are transpiring, and with the current events of the Vatican making history, let’s keep this message close to us:
4 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
6 If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters,[a] you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed. 7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. 10 That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.
11 Command and teach these things. 12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
Petrus Romanus seems to be in the news now more than ever as the world waits to see if the prophecy of Malachy will be fulfilled with the assignment of the next Pope. Is he the Pope of the End Times?
Petrus is the name or the ‘identity’ of the last Pope according to Malachy, named after Peter, the Apostle.
What timing for this prophecy. The story of Peter is exactly what is happening today.
The whole spirit of Peter’s writings and his story are also more relevant than ever in our midst. His message springs forward to me at this time as something addressing our present day situation. Themes of persecution, wavering faith, doubt, weakness, solidity, foundations are surfacing today more than ever. He addresses the challenge of believing that which you know to be true, but that you can’t “see”.
There are power surges of faith happening throughout the world. Some people are just waking up to the truth of Christ, feeling the heat of the moment, some are embracing their faith more fervently, seekers are now actively seeking more light while others are being persecuted for their faith in many countries. We are seeing people today chastised and ridiculed for their faith in countries which were built on Christian principles. This surge of faith is not able to permeate everywhere yet. We are also seeing a strong current of lukewarm believers, who want to believe, but are being carried downstream by a strong rush of current, sourcing from deceit and Godlessness that is permeating society. These people are either too weak to withstand the current or they are too afraid to speak up for what they believe in and to go against the grain.
These spiritual states of being are not new to humanity. This state of affairs is very similar to the conditions that were experienced by the early Christians. Some were strong, some were weak and many were persecuted. All had to contend with tremendous forces of anti Christian sentiment and Godlessness permeating all aspects of their lives and corrupting society at that time. Peter addressed this situation in his writing to the followers of Christ who were in Asia Minor – an area which was wrought with the persecution of these early Christians.
Peter is the English form of the name Petros (Petrus in Latin) which comes from the Greek word “petra” meaning Rock. Peter was God’s rock. Jesus chose Peter to be His rock. Christ was able to see solid foundation even when we can only see weakness.
Peter displayed human weakness. He wavered – he first proclaimed Christ as the Savior, the Messiah , before the others did, and yet Peter also disowned Christ three times. (Luke 22: 54 -71) Despite that, Peter became his Rock, giving him the keys to Paradise. Christ understood and saw beyond the human condition that is visible to us.
The wavering was meant to happen then. Christ knew about it before it happened. And that wavering still happens today, on a small and a grand scale. People are easily led to waver in all facets of their lives. We even see churches having wavered, being steered away from Christ. Peter bitterly cried over the way he denied Christ the night that Christ was seized. Christ however knew the depth of the faith that Peter had in his heart.
That is so relevant to us today because Christ is giving us all the opportunity to be accepted in His Kingdom, in His Heart, giving us a clear path to salvation and eternal life, even though we waver, we are weak and we are vulnerable. He sees what is in our hearts and wants us to live through that faith alone – not by the worldly principles. In this world, but not of this world. That is a difficult task with all of the temptation and deceit that prevails in the world, but what a small task when we see the tremendous sacrifice that He made for us.
Peter’s letters give sound advice for us to be able to withstand any forces that may cause us to waver in our faith, in our heart.
Peter wrote to those who were slandered, humiliated, alienated and even persecuted for the belief in Christ. Although they were written then, like all that is written in the Scriptures, his letters are still “alive” and speak to the issues facing Christians today.
Today we see the persecution of Christians in many forms throughout the world. Being Christian is targeted in so many ways in today’s world.
Click on the link below and listen to Peter’s letter. He gives advice, encouragement and wisdom that we should keep in mind constantly.
He talks about things that are issues for many of us today. Peter talks about having to submit to authority that is unjust and cruel. He talks about the strength needed to stay firm to your beliefs in a Godless society. The society that the first receivers of this letter lived in was a pagan one, and they persecuted the Christians. The conditions then however were very similar in many ways to the conditions that prevail in the world now.
