We have just added a new section about the Prophecy of the Popes by Saint Malachy. It concerns the last ten popes that came before Francis I. We have given our own interpretation of the mottoes of each Pope. We believe that the last ten Popes are crucial in what we’re trying to predict, because these are the Popes of the 100 years mentioned in the vision of Pope Leo XIII.
Many think that prediction and prophecy are the same but they’re mistaken. It’s true that they both forecast the future but there’s a difference!
A prediction is a forecast made by those who calculate the parameters of the subject involved and after evaluating al the odds they can predict the future. The weather forecast is a classical example. An experienced teacher can predict that one of his students is brilliant and will have a successful career, but at the age of 21 the student tragically dies. The teacher’s prediction would have been correct, however never fulfilled because the variable of the tragic death at young age was not taken into account.
The prophecy is another story. The ancient Pharaohs of Egypt used to say “So shall it be written and so shall it be done”. And so is the prophecy. Once written it is to be fulfilled without exceptions. A prophecy has all the ingredients except the element of time. Without the element of time a prophecy is hard to pinpoint because history tends to rhyme from time to time. Nevertheless we believe that in the last century or so there have been prophetic visions with some time element (more information to follow in future articles).
A typical example is Bible prophecy. Jesus Christ was prophesied centuries ahead of His time. A host of prophets in the old testament heralded his coming, and yet many did not recognise Him and was crucified. The Jews waited for so long the coming of their Messiah that when he came he was not recognised despite having in their hands a book with one third prophecy, the Bible.
Therefore when the Vatican says that the third part of the Fatima secret (actually prophecy would be more appropriate) is referring to the 1981 attempt assassination of Pope John Paul II, they are either wrong or they want us to believe so not to cause speculation like we are doing here. The third part of the Fatima secret clearly states that a Pope is to be killed – Pope John Paul II survived the assassination attempt, therefore this prophecy is yet to be fulfilled, possibly by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
Therefore since a prophecy cannot be altered why is it written? A prophecy is just a tool to warn us to be prepared for the unexpected eventualities. Nobody knows the moment of the final judgement but when it shall come we ought to be prepared. And be prepared because the signs are out there and we can speculate that the second coming is in the not so distant future.
In Christianity a prophet (or seer) is one inspired by God through the Holy Spirit to deliver a message for a specific purpose. In the popular vernacular, it is often associated with predicting future events, but in Christian and biblical terms, its meaning is wider and can include those given the power to preach repentance to those who do not want to hear the message and to warn of God’s wrath for disobedience. God’s calling as a prophet is not considered to elevate an individual for their glory, but for the glory of God and to turn people to him. Some Christian denominations would limit that and exclude those who receive a personal message not intended for the body of believers, but in the Bible on a number of occasions prophets were called to deliver personal messages. The reception of a message is termed revelation and the delivery of the message is termed prophecy.
Several prophets have been mentioned in the Old Testament such as Daniel, Elijah, Job, Jonah and Isaiah. All recognised by the Catholic church, but perhaps for us living in the 21st century, Saint Malachy, the Irish Archbishop of Armagh from the 12th century, is more relevant.
Malachy obtained sainthood as several miracles have been attributed to him. However Malachy left another legacy behind, that of a vision of the identity of the last 112 Popes, also known as the Prophecy of the Popes. Although the church doesn’t put a lot of importance on the latter, one cannot ignore the fact that Saint Malachy was a prophet inspired by a vision from God. And no matter how much the church tries to diminish the importance of Saint Malachy’s prophecy, who dares to delve into details of Saint Malachy’s prophecy, wouldn’t take him or her much time before he or she realised that the prophecy is quite accuate.
False prophets also exist like anyone who claims to speak God’s words or teach in his name. One test given in the Old Testament in Deuteronomy contains a warning of those who prophecy events which do not come to pass and said they should be put to death. Elsewhere a false prophet may be someone who is purposely trying to deceive, is delusional, under the influence of Satan or is speaking from his own spirit.
And here comes the conundrum! What if a prophet, unlike Malachy inspired by a vision from God, is actually inspired by a vision from Satan? A genuine prophet indeed, not a holy one but rather a satanic prophet.
NOSTRADAMUS – the 16th century French seer is the modern-day prophet who has referred to satanic powers to obtain an accurate (but not precise) vision of the future. A future were evil reigns but not necessarily win the final battle. Remember that vanity is the greatest sin. Lucifer’s vanity as the most preferred angel of god led him to the eternal fall from grace to become a demon. So the devil will never accept that at the end he’ll lose the battle.
No Christian, Jewish or Muslim, doubts the fact that Satan is the master of deception, and for such reason we humans must be prudent not to play his game either and end up making false assumptions. In the midst of all this speculation about the a possible scenario for the coming months and years, we as the Anonymous Prophets, are trying to connect all the dots with all the scientific facts available to us and all the Christian knowledge we’ve been indoctrinated with as kids. No matter how much we try to keep our feet on the ground and take in only the information that the natural world is providing us, we can never deny our Christian roots. Our curiosity shall keep us asking why this and why that!
More is to come on our blog about the Satanic Prophet Nostradamus! Keep following!
For the Prophecy of the Popes by St Malachy to be fulfilled, the next and the last Pope should be called PETRUS ROMANUS (Peter the Roman).
Who is that cardinal elected pope who would dare to take the name Petrus Romanus to fulfull a prophecy? It would take a very arrogant cardinal to assume such a name for the sake of fulfilling a prophecy.
So, no, the next Pope in the Vatican’s seat will not be called PETRUS ROMANUS. So who will it be? And if a false Pope will be occupying Rome’s seat, where will the real pope’s seat be?
However the prophecy will be fulfilled in some way or another!
De Gloria Olivae (The Glory of the Olive) is the motto that St Malachy attributed to Pope Benedict XVI. Proponents of the prophecies have generally try to draw a connection between Benedict and the Olivetan order to explain this motto. Benedict’s choice of papal name is after Saint Benedict of Nursia, founder of the Benedictine Order, of which the Olivetans are one branch.
Benedict’s name is a sound reference to the motto by St Malachy. In fact St Benedict is the patron saint of Europe and the olive is a symbol of peace thus implying that the head of church is a herald of peace in Europe and to the world.
However there could be a hidden truth behind his motto. Like Jesus in the Garden of the Gethsemane (the garden of olives) has let himself in the Lord’s will to sacrifice for the salvation of mankind, could the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI imply he’s sacrificing himself and preparing us to the Second Coming? Is Pope Benedict XVI part of the Olivet Prophecy?
According to Gospel of Matthew Chapter 24 (as part of the Olivet Prophecy):
36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
Could the two men be the two Popes, i.e. the ‘retired’ Pope Benedict XVI and the one who’ll take the seat in Rome? If so what will happen to Benedict XVI if he’s taken? Read also about the last angelus of Pope Benedict XVI.
