Bible Believers' Newsletter 780
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am happy to see you and thank you for joining us once again in fellowship around God's unchanging Word. Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
Our main article was written by Thomas R. Horn and published in newswithviews.com to promote his book Petrus Romanus, which postulates Pope Francis I as the last pope. The author has researched some excellent source material in support of his conclusions; we feature his article as it aligns with our revelation in Newsletter 776The Beast and the False Prophet. We have added several supportive links to his story which are followed by explanatory comments, hyperlinks and irrefutable quotations complimentary to Thomas Horn's core hypothesis and expound our differences founded on the rock of Scripture in the Light of the Message of the seventh angel, praising Jesus for sending us His prophet (Amos 3:3; Malachi 4:5-6).
"Pope Francis I is known in his native Argentina as a man of austere habits, long pregnant pauses in conversation and a reticence about discussing himself. For his supporters, this is proof of his humility, which was further underlined for them in his first address as Pope to the masses in St Peter's Square, where he eschewed the usual jewelled crucifix in favour of a simple wooden cross".
He has shown himself to be an extremely astute politician by founding his pontificate upon the respect of the common man rather than approval of the elite. As a cardinal in Buenos Aires, he chose to live in a small apartment where he cooked his own meals instead of the archbishop's palace. As an archbishop he rejected a chauffeur-driven limousine in favour of riding the bus and quite naturally mingled with people from all walks of life. He is still residing in the Vatican's guest house, Domus Sanctae Marthae, where he eats meals with others in the common dining room and can walk to some of his appointments in the Vatican and seems in no hurry to relocate to the ten-room papal apartment. One sign that the new pope is doing just that: yesterday he invited 50 Argentineans to party with him at an impromptu celebration in the Domus.
Pope Francis I declared his pontificate should be "a Church for the poor" and there can be few more effective ways of conveying this ambition than by jettisoning traditional papal names in favour of Francis. Although Jesuits take a special vow not to seek higher office, there have been scores of Jesuit bishops. Ignatius, an advocate worthy of the Devil himself, did not want Jesuits to be bishops as careerism might rob the Society of its most able warriors and compromise the absolute authority of the Superior General. At any event Popes have appointed Jesuits as bishops, especially in missionary countries.
Jesuit bishops have been rare in the United States even though the very first American bishop, John Carroll, was a Jesuit (and probably the richest man in America, he allowed funding to construct Washington D.C. on land formerly owned by one Francis Pope). By the brief Dominus ac Redemptor (July 21, 1773) Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Society of Jesus, and in autumn of 1773 John Carroll repaired to Wardour Castle near Tilsbury in Wiltshire when civil authorities closed down the Jesuit school in Liege, Belgium, where he had been teaching. The Castle belonged to the Duke of Norfolk, also known as Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundell, "Grand Master of Masons in England." For a year Carroll stayed at Wardour, serving as the Arundell family's tutor and chaplain before sailing for America to participate in the Revolution. Thirty-third Degree Masonic scholar Manly P. Hall, in his gnostic extravaganza, Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbological Philosophy (1988), remarked "Not only were many founders of the United States Government Masons but they received aid from a secret and August body existing in Europe, which helped them establish the country for a peculiar and particular purpose known only to the initiated few" (F. Tupper Saussy, Rulers of Evil, p. 123). Note the link between Judaeo-Jesuitry and Judaeo-Masonry, Romanism and Communism.
Despite his apparent innocence Pope Francis brings Jesuitry, the practice of mental reservation, casuistry and equivocation espoused by the Babylonian Talmud. Free Masons are from the same "cage of every unclean and hateful bird" and likewise "solemnly swear to observe [their oaths], without evasion, equivocation, or mental reservation of any kind." This is the real face of the Jesuit, especially one who is Pontifex Maximus as Canon 705 makes clear:
"A religious raised to the episcopate remains a member of his institute but is subject only to the Roman Pontiff by virtue of the vow of obedience and is not bound by obligations which he himself prudently judges cannot be reconciled with his condition." In other words, any Jesuit bishop, including the bishop of Rome, is still a Jesuit but he does not have to follow orders of any Jesuit superior, even the Jesuit Superior General. A Jesuit who does not have to follow the orders of a Jesuit Superior is certainly a strange bird, but he is still a Jesuit and the previous paragraph applies.
Limited by neither constitution nor law, the Jesuits have the world divided among provincials after the Babylonian Provincial government centered around (Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar and) the Jesuit Superior General himself. He rules the world through the Provinicials who govern Jesuits of the lower orders and unprofessed "Jesuits of the short robe" who are the equivalent of Jewish 'sayanim.' There are ten Provincials in the United States.
Revelation 17:9-11, "Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman [or Judaeo-Roman Catholic church] sits. They are seven kings [who have deified themselves]: five are fallen, Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, and Claudius, and one is, Nero, and the other is not yet come, Galba; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. And the [Devil-incarnate] beast that was, and is not [is the last in a long line of popes as described in verses 8one pope dies "and is not," then his successor is crowned and he "is"]; even he is the eighth [king], and is of the seven [in that he too deifies Himself (II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 13:4-8)], and goes into perdition".
My precious Brother and Sister, you "have the mind of Christ and judge in all things, yet you yourself will be judged by no man . . . Here is the mind which has wisdom" (I Corinthians 3:12-16).
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Eyewitness: Authorities announced 'Drill' before Boston Explosions
April 15, 2013 An eyewitness to the two explosions at the Boston Marathon today said that a "drill" was repeatedly announced before the bombs exploded and that he "thought it was odd" bomb sniffing dogs were in place before the blast.
University of Mobile's Cross Country Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15 TV News, "They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about. It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill."
The news station also reports that Stevenson "thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines." Stevenson then describes hearing the explosions as he ran away from the scene, having just completed the marathon. If this report is accurate, it clearly suggests there could have been some degree of prior knowledge of the bombing, which killed two people and injured at least 23.
The fact that the explosions were preceded and overlapped by a "drill" of an almost identical nature mirrors other major terror attacks, such as the 7/7 bombings in London [Australia's Port Arthur Massacre, ASIO's Hilton Hotel bombing in Sydney, Sandy Hook, phony Batman shooting in Aurora, Colorado], etc., Full story: infowars.com globalresearch.ca infowars.com
Comment: A common strategy evident today's in false flag black ops; such a 'coincidence,' almost as if it was scripted. We are told that a group of parents from Newtown ran the Boston Marathon, that the last mile was dedicated to families of Sandy Hook victims, with the honored families seated in the VIP section of the race near where the explosions went off. All pressure cookers must be registered with Homeland Security and pressure tested every year.
Bilderberg behind Terrorist Attacks: Italian Supreme Court President
April 11, 2013 Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy and former Senior Investigative Judge Ferdinando Imposimato, the man who prosecuted the case involving the assassination attempt against Pope John Paul II, has sensationally accused the Bilderberg Group of being behind terrorist attacks in Europe.
Imposimato, who was also involved in the case involving the kidnapping and murder of former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro, said that he "found a document that left me appalled" implicating the Bilderberg Group in conspiring with the far right organization Ordine Nuovo to commit terror attacks.
Speaking of unsolved murders in Italy and the document in his possession, Imposimato stated, "When it comes to slaughter it also speaks of the Bilderberg Group. I believe this document. I did some tests and I can say that behind the strategy of tension and the slaughters there is also the Bilderberg group, a sort of Big Brother is over, maneuvering, using terrorists and Masons."

Comment: One objective of the youtube is to reinforce the BIG LIE that Osama bin Laden and not elements in the US and Mossad was responsible for 9/11. The truth concerning Australia's Port Arthur Massacre, 9/11 and bombings of Marriott Hotels and shopping malls run by the same the same entity, the Bali Bombing, 7/7, Aurora Theatre, Columbine, Sandy Hook hoax, massacres and shootings throughout the world were all part of the same political strategy.
Margaret Thatcher: First Prominent Climate Alarmist to become a Sceptic
April 12, 2013 "Pouring scorn on the "doomsters," she questioned the main scientific assumptions used to drive the scare, from the conviction that the chief force shaping world climate is CO2, rather than natural factors such as solar activity, to exaggerated claims about rising sea levels. She mocked Al Gore and the futility of "costly and economically damaging" schemes to reduce CO2 emissions. She cited the 2.5C rise in temperatures during the Medieval Warm Period as having had almost entirely beneficial effects. She pointed out that the dangers of a world getting colder are far worse than those of a CO2-enriched world growing warmer. She recognised how distortions of the science had been used to mask an anti-capitalist, Left-wing political agenda which posed a serious threat to the progress and prosperity of mankind" (Christopher Booker).

15 Year Old Girl kidnapped by German Police
April 15, 2013 CBN news footage in Erlangen, Germany shows how oppressive a regime could become when government has the authority to remove children from home. In this Bavarian town 15-year old Christian girl Melissa Busekros was taken from her parents in a SWAT-style police raid. German officials consider her family dangerous because her parents home school their daughter. She was given psychiatric evaluation for being home schooled. Kept from her parents after the results of the evaluation determined "she shows a disturbing sense of family solidarity," placed in state foster "care" and allowed to see her parents for an hour a week.
She was diagnosed of school phobia by state-paid shrink, declared mentally ill and locked in an asylum because she opposed the government's policies and believed in God. The German government denied that she was removed because she was home schooled by her parents, but because of her strong family tie and obedience to her father who authorities considered insane.

Irreparable' Safety Issues: All US Nuclear Reactors should be replaced
April 9, 2013 All 104 nuclear reactors currently operational in the US have irreparable safety issues and should be taken out of commission and replaced, former chairman of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Gregory B. Jaczko said. . . during the Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference. . .
According to the former chairman, US reactors that received permission from the nuclear commission to operate for an additional 20 years past their initial 40-year licenses would not likely last long. He further rejected the commission's proposal for a second 20-year extension, which would leave some American nuclear reactors operating for some 80 years... Full story: rt.com
Comment: "The White House has given final approval for dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following "radiological incidents," such as nuclear power-plant accidents and dirty bombs. The final version, slated for Federal Register publication as soon as today, is a win for the nuclear industry which seeks what its proponents call a "new normal" for radiation exposure among the US population, according to Dr. Helen Caldicott of "Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility".
Operation destabilize Venezuela and the Secret US Embassy Cables
April 9, 2013 WikiLeaks has done it again. I guess the US will really have to get tough now with Julian Assange and Bradley Manning.
In a secret US cable to the State Department, dated November 9, 2006, and recently published online by WikiLeaks, former US ambassador to Venezuela, William Brownfield, outlines a comprehensive plan to destabilize the government of the late President Hugo Chávez. The cable begins with a Summary:
During his 8 years in power, President Chavez has systematically dismantled the institutions of democracy and governance. The USAID/OTI program objectives in Venezuela focus on strengthening democratic institutions and spaces through non-partisan cooperation with many sectors of Venezuelan society.
USAID/OTI = United States Agency for International Development/Office of Transition Initiatives. The latter is one of the many euphemisms American diplomats use with each other and the world. They say it means a transition to "democracy." What it actually means is a transition from the target country adamantly refusing to cooperate with American imperialist grand designs to a country gladly willing (or acceding under pressure) to cooperate with American imperialist grand designs.
OTI supports the Freedom House (FH) "Right to Defend Human Rights" program with $1.1 million. Simultaneously through Development Alternatives Inc. (DAI), OTI has also provided 22 grants to human rights organizations.
Freedom House is one of the oldest US government conduits for transitioning to "democracy"; to a significant extent it equates "democracy" and "human rights" with free enterprise. Development Alternatives Inc. is the organization that sent Alan Gross to Cuba on a mission to help implement the US government's operation of regime change.
OTI speaks of working to improve "the deteriorating human rights situation in" Venezuela. Does anyone know of a foreign government with several millions of dollars to throw around who would like to improve the seriously deteriorating human rights situation in the United States? They can start with the round-the-clock surveillance and unconscionable entrapment of numerous young "terrorists" guilty of thought crimes.
"OTI partners are training NGOs [non-governmental organizations] to be activists and become more involved in advocacy."
Now how's that for a self-given license to fund and get involved in any social, economic or political activity that can sabotage any program of the Chávez government and/or make it look bad? The US ambassador's cable points out that:
OTI has directly reached approximately 238,000 adults through over 3,000 forums, workshops and training sessions delivering alternative values and providing opportunities for opposition activists to interact with hard-core Chavistas, with the desired effect of pulling them slowly away from Chavismo. We have supported this initiative with 50 grants totaling over $1.1 million. . . American sovereignty hasn't faced a legitimate foreign threat to its existence since the British in 1812.
So, the United States and its Western partners have banned Iranian TV from North America and in various European countries. Did you hear about that? Probably not if you're not on the mailing list of PressTV, the 24-hour English-Language Iranian news channel. According to PressTV:
The Iranian film channel, iFilm, as well as Iranian radio stations, have also been banned from sensitive Western eyes and ears, all such media having been removed in February from the Galaxy 19 satellite platform serving the United States and Canada. . . In his classic 1984, George Orwell defined "doublethink" as "the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them." In the United States, the preferred label given by the Ministry of Truth to such hypocrisy is "American exceptionalism," which manifests itself in the assertion of a divinely ordained mission as well in the insistence on America's right to apply double standards in its own favor and reject "moral equivalence". . .

Comment: Here for those with "eyes to see [is] the image unto the beast of Imperial Rome" (Revelation 13:11-18).
By Thomas R. Horn© 2013 All Rights Reserved
April 13, 2013 To say some of our sanctified speculations have been confirmed given the election of Pope Francis I is an understatement. "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon" (Revelation 13:11). Indeed this second beast—the false prophet—is predicted to be viewed "like a lamb" and the accolades afforded the new pontiff on 3/13/2013 at 20:13 support that notion. 4 As Protestants, we feel well within our rights to assert all claimants to Pontifex Maximus Vicar of Christ as false prophets.[xi] Please do not be fooled by the media's unwitting accolades concerning Pope Francis' feigned humility, this man believes he is literally Christ on Earth, or he would not accept the title of Vicar of Christ. All the same, if the predictions of St. Malachy are truly at their fruition, then the second beast, the one from the Earth called the "false prophet" (Revelation 16:13; 19:20; 20:10) may well be Pope Francis in the role of Petrus Romanus who, unwittingly or not, will lead the world to worship the dragon. 5 Interestingly, his namesake St. Francis of Assisi would agree. Comment: Brother R. Thomas Horn is to be commended for his excellent investigative journalism. Our commentary is based on the end-time Message of William Marrion Branham, the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11, Revelation 1:1, 3:14 and 10:7 in Light of his THUS SAITH THE LORD, and Scripture supplemented by diverse authoritative sources which at times differ from the conclusions of our author.
Pope Benedict XVI's February 11, 2013 announcement—as forecast in our book Petrus Romanus—was unprecedented because the last pope to resign was Gregory XII in 1415, nearly six hundred years ago. We did not venture this hypothesis uninformed. In his book, Light of the World: The Pope, the Church, and the Signs of the Times, when asked if he thought it appropriate for a pope to retire, Pope Benedict XVI responded, "If a pope clearly realizes that he is no longer physically, psychologically and spiritually capable of handling the duties of his office, then he has a right and, under some circumstances, also an obligation to resign."[i] Thus, based on a conflation of prophecy and current events we went out on a limb, taking a risky position on pages 57–58 of this volume by asserting that Benedict XVI would step down for reasons related to health concerns. Indeed, it came to pass and many former skeptics picked up Petrus Romanus in earnest.
As the reader may be aware, we correlated Pope Benedict's predisposition to retire with the work of the Jesuit scholar, René Thibaut, who predicted over 60 years ago that the door would be opened for the arrival of the final pope on Malachy's list in 2012. Of course, the year 2012 came and went with seemingly no fulfillment. Consequently, we were a little disappointed when it seemed like Thibaut was mistaken. All the same, Thibaut's code-breaking work is a relatively small portion of our book's content, so we never felt our work was made irrelevant. As it turns out, however, Thibaut was far more correct—astoundingly so—than anyone would ever imagine until February 2013! According to the New York Times:
That the resignation [by Benedict XVI] was long in the planning was confirmed by Giovanni Maria Vian, the editor of the Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, who wrote on Monday that the pope's decision "was taken many months ago," after his trip to Mexico and Cuba in March 2012, "and kept with a reserve that no one could violate."[ii]
In other words, Pope Benedict officially and secretly resigned right when Thibaut—and we—speculated he would in 2012, and then his February 11, 2013 public affirmation was quickly punctuated by a dramatic lightning bolt striking St. Peter's basilica.[iii] Whether one agrees with his theology or not, credit must be given where it is due. Thibaut accurately predicted this changing of the guard over sixty years prior. Pope Benedict's South American tour was ongoing as the first edition of our book went to print and it is now evident that he decided to step down simultaneous with its release exactly when the Belgian Jesuit said he would—sixty years prior. This is also evidenced by the fact that renovations to a property hosting Benedict's retirement home ensued in 2012 as well.[iv] Thus, with two living Pontificus Maximi, we have entered into terra incognita as far as the modern papacy is concerned. This brings us to the new pope.
According to the prophecy of St. Malachy, Peter the Roman has arrived. Pope Francis, formerly known as Jorge Mario Bergoglio the son of Italian immigrants to Argentina, has assumed the 112th position on Malachy's famous list. While shallow skeptics were quick to point out that "his name is not Peter," their complaint betrays ignorance of the way the Malachy prophecy works. We have stated from the beginning that the title "Peter the Roman" was symbolic. All popes claim apostolic succession from Peter and, for this reason, it is called the Petrine office. They claim to sit on the chair of St. Peter and in this way all popes are Peters. For instance, in an interview with World Net Daily prior to the Pope Francis election, Tom Horn was quoted thus:
Regardless, Horn said he's always maintained that it doesn't take someone whose Christian name is Peter to fulfill the prophecy. "In fact, if any Italian is elected, that would be a fairly transparent fulfillment," he said. Moreover, he argued, "in a very general sense, every pope could be regarded as 'Peter the Roman,' and in that sense, this could be the last one."[v]
Real scholars who studied the Malachy prophecy down through time unanimously came to a similar conclusion—that the title Petrus Romanus ("Peter the Roman") was symbolic and not indicative of a birth name any more than Gloria Olivae (the 111th line in the prophecy of the popes, the one for Pope Benedict XVI) was Cardinal Ratzinger's given name before he became Pope Benedict XVI, naming himself after the founder of the Benedictine Order, of which the Olivetans are one branch in order to fulfill his place in the prophecy. Over sixty years ago, Thibaut similarly rejected the possibility of a pope literally named Peter and wrote that the name symbolized the totality of the papacy:
We therefore reject the Roman appointed Peter as the impossible Peter II. There is only one Peter, the first of the Roman pontiffs, and he is seen in his many successors. He still to serve is the final as in the first persecution. We believe Petrus Romanus represents all the Roman Pontiffs from St. Peter to the recipient Gloria Olivae.[vi]
In Thibaut's reckoning, the meaning of "Petrus" is that all the ambitions and pretensions of the papal dynasty are now encompassed in one man, Pope Francis. This was our position as well, but we were more than a little astounded recently when the Archpriest of St. Peter's Basilica, Cardinal Angelo Comastri acknowledged how Petrus Romanus is incarnate in Pope Francis. In discussing details of the new Pope's April 1, 2013 visit to St. Peter's tomb in the necropolis under the basilica, Comastri said:
We then made a second stop before the funerary stele of a man called Istatilio. He was certainly Christian: on his grave is the monogram [chi-rho] of Christ. On the stele is inscribed: 'He was at peace with everyone and never caused strife.' The Pope, after reading the phrase, looked at us and said, 'That is a beautiful program of life.' Climbing back up the stairs and having reached the Clementine Chapel, Pope Francis became absorbed in prayer and repeated with a loud voice the three professions of Peter: "Lord, You are the Christ, Son of the Living God"; "Lord, to whom do we go? You have the words of eternal life"; "Lord, You know all things! You know that I love you!" At that moment, we had the distinct impression that the life of Peter rose out of centuries past and became present and living in the current Successor of the Apostle Peter. 1
In addition to this incredible fulfillment of the Malachy prophecy, many scholars of various schools of thought see Bible prophecy in general near its climax. In fact, events in Israel also fell in place just as the first edition of the book Petrus Romanus forecast a year prior. In chapter 16, "The Burdensome Stone," we wrote about an obscure, under-the-table deal concerning the Hall of the Last Supper on Mount Zion, and it seems that deal has been consummated. Reporter Shlomo Cesana broke the story in the Israel Hayom Newsletter on January 30, 2013:
A historical agreement has been signed between Israel and the Vatican, ending a 20 year dispute. Israel has granted the pope an official seat in the room where the Last Supper is believed to have taken place, on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.[vii]
Even though it is being ignored by the mainstream media, this is momentous because end-time prophecy plays out in Jerusalem and now, for the first time since the reformation of Israel in 1948, the Roman Pontiff has an official seat on Mount Zion. Watch for Pope Francis to visit Israel more than once and pay attention to the details. 2 Accordingly, Hal Lindsey agrees with us that exegesis of Revelation 13:11–18 implies the final pope is likely the false prophet:
The Apostle John in the Book of the Revelation describes very plainly how the leader of the world religious system (based in Rome) will pave the way for the rise of the man who will be the Antichrist. Unfortunately for that churchman, the Antichrist and the False Prophet will later turn on him and destroy the religious system and the city.[viii] 3
Another interesting and possibly noteworthy aspect of the Final Pope is the timing of his arrival. While we don't normally put a lot of stock in numerology, mystics do and the great biblical scholar and Anglican theologian, Ethelbert W. Bullinger, wrote an exhaustive treatise in the nineteenth century which has yielded some interesting connections to the new pontiff. The numbers surrounding Pope Francis' election keep coming up thirteen. White smoke at 7:06 p.m.: 7 + 6 = 13; he is 76 years old: 7 + 6 = 13; he was elected on the calendar date 3/13/13, which sports two thirteens of its own; 3/13/2013 also yields 3 + 1 + 3 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 3 = 13; he was announced at precisely 8:13 p.m. Vatican time, or, in military and European time 20:13, making for an astounding 3/13/2013 at 20:13. According to Bullinger:
As to the significance of thirteen, all are aware that it has come down to us as a number of ill-omen. Many superstitions cluster around it, and various explanations are current concerning them.
Unfortunately, those who go backwards to find a reason seldom go back far enough. The popular explanations do not, so far as we are aware, go further back than the Apostles. But we must go back to the first occurrence of the number thirteen in order to discover the key to its significance. It occurs first in Genesis 14:4, where we read "Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the thirteenth year they REBELLED."
Hence every occurrence of the number thirteen, and likewise of every multiple of it, stamps that with which it stands in connection with rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration, revolution, or some kindred idea.[ix]
This ill omen suggests the apostasy prophesied by Paul (2 Thessalonians 2:3) and the many Revelation judgments along with the "many tribulations" and destruction of Rome predicted by the Malachy prophecy. Bullinger goes on to cite these remarkably suggestive numerical concurrences:
(theerion), beast = 247 (13x19)
"He had two horns" = 1521 (132x9)
"And he had two horns like a lamb" = 2704 (132x16)
Revelation 13:11, The whole verse = 6318 (13x486)[x]
The Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio has chosen Francis as his papal name, a first in tribute to Francis of Assisi. It is noteworthy that St. Francis of Assisi's long Italian name is Francesco di Pietro di Bernardone, a title that can accurately be viewed as "Peter the Roman" from the final line in the Prophecy of the Popes. Since the phrase that supplanted the birth name Giovanni is Francesco di Pietro, and that by sainthood, it is safe to say that by choosing Francis of Assisi's name, he in effect chose Francesco di Pietro, and he is unlikely to prefer truncation of the Pietro element since Catholicism esteems Peter (Petrus) as the rock of the church and spuriously maintains he was the first pope. Rome was an empire and a city so Bergoglio's Italian ancestry arguably meets the Roman aspect in a similar way. Accordingly, many argue that Bergoglio has fulfilled the Peter the Roman title with his choice of papal name.
As the 2013 conclave concluded, Bergoglio said he chose the original papal name Francis after St. Francis of Assisi when Cardinal Claudio Hummes exhorted him to "remember the poor."[xii] The reader might recall that our book Petrus Romanus connected the friar Assisi with Petrus Romanus over a year ago now, quoting an apocalyptic prediction he made soon after St. Malachy's prophecy concerning a Final Pope:
"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."[xiii]
Was there something non-canonic about the election of Pope Francis? For starters, Pope Benedict XVI's retirement makes for an unprecedented situation. When a pope is elected, the Church expects that he will remain in office until his death. Before now, only five popes unambiguously resigned with historical certainty, all between the tenth and fifteenth centuries. Arguably, that makes Bergoglio's election suspect but, apparently, not a violation of canon law. In 1294, Celestine V issued a decree declaring it permissible for a pope to resign, and then resigned himself after only five months as pope. He lived a few more years as a hermit and then as a prisoner of his tyrannical successor, Boniface VIII. Because his decree was never repealed, canon law experts allow that a pope can resign, albeit it is discouraged. Others have objected that 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. This was done by Pope Benedict's final decree but the urgency to seat his successor seems suspicious. While Pope Francis represents many firsts, overall, the most interesting aspect is his status as the first ever Jesuit pope. The sitting pontiff's background has great prophetic significance as the Jesuit order was formed to specifically combat the Protestant reformation and assert papal supremacy over the entire world.
According to a historian, "The Jesuits were the soldiers of the pope: they knew no law but the will of their general, no mode of worship but the pope's dictate, no church but themselves."[xiv] 6 Because of this, the Jesuit order was suppressed and disbanded for its pernicious skullduggery by Pope Clement XIV in 1773, and by the mid-eighteenth century, the Jesuits had earned a bad reputation in Europe for political maneuvering and economic exploitation bar-none.
The order was reinstated in the early nineteenth century with the mission to conquer by scholarship and infiltration of the education system. 7 Interestingly, Pope Benedict XVI addressed the Jesuit order in 2008, encouraging them to reinvigorate the fourth vow. He said, "For this very reason I have invited you and also invite you today to reflect in order to rediscover the fullest meaning of your characteristic 'fourth vow' of obedience to the Successor of Peter."[xv]
Church historians record that the fourth vow of obedience is one of "absolute subservience to the pope; to do whatever he enjoined, and go on any service he wished, and into any quarter of the globe."[xvi] A few ex-Jesuit whistle-blowers have called this a blood oath involving pagan rites which were laid bare in the suppressed document, "Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction," which was once recorded in records of the US Congress, but was suspiciously expunged. According to this document, they are indoctrinated into the principle of Iustum, Necar, Reges, Impious, meaning, "It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers."[xvii] The Jesuit modernists of today prefer more subtle methods like infiltrating the education system and promoting biblical higher criticism that undermines biblical authority.
Protestants and Catholics have written about a clandestine war that has been playing out for some time behind the scenes between the papacy and the Jesuit order. We will speculate what this could mean between Pope Francis . . . and the coming of an alien savior 8 (newswithviews.com).
1. It is not the life of St. Peter that will rise "out of centuries past and became present and living in the current Successor of the Apostle Peter." This is spiritualism; it is not possible to communicate with departed saints since the New Testament (Psalms 115:17; 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5-6; Isaiah 38:18-19; Hebrews 9:27). When Satan is cast down to earth at the end of the Gentile dispensation he will incarnate the last Pope with his spirit (II Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 17:8-11) as he incarnate the Serpent in the Garden of Eden and subsequently Judas Iscariot (John 17:12; Revelation 12:7-12).
2. "Watch for Pope Francis to visit Israel more than once and pay attention to the details." The Prophet said, "I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the United States [after the UN installs Him as President of one world government by universal acclaim] and put over there [in Jerusalem] according to prophecy, then they'll form an image like unto the beast. And I tell you, the true Church of God will be drove together. The real, true believers out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they'll be, will go together and cemented by the love of God, that'll make the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they'll go right on into the confederation of churches" (Acts of the Holy Spirit, p. 12:87).
3. "Accordingly, Hal Lindsey agrees with us that exegesis of Revelation 13:11–18 implies the final pope is likely . . . the Antichrist and the False Prophet . . . the leader of the world religious system (based in Rome) will pave the way for the rise of the man who will be the Antichrist. Unfortunately for that churchman, the Antichrist and the False Prophet will later turn on him and destroy the religious system and the city."
"That churchman" and every pope is "the Antichrist and the False Prophet." When he is incarnate by Satan at the close of the Gentile dispensation the last pope will become "the beast?" (Revelation 13:4). He cannot "turn on" himself, as Revelation 17:11-18 and 18:8-20 and 24 explain, the Black Nobility will "turn on" Papal Rome and the Judaeo-Communist "Russian empire will drop an atomic bomb of some sort on the Vatican City and destroy it in one hour. THUS SAITH THE LORD" (William Branham, Mark of the Beast, p. 18:137). "And when that atomic bomb or whatever it is will strike that Vatican City, and the Roman hierarchy will be no more, it said, 'And in her was found the blood of every martyr that ever was killed in the world.' There she is. And here's the image to it, a confederation of churches" (Ten Virgins, p. 471:248).
4. "this second beast—the false prophet—is predicted to be viewed "like a lamb" and the accolades afforded the new pontiff." This "beast that comes up out of the earth" is not a man, it is the United States of America, which is the image unto the beast of Imperial Rome that "rose up out of the [Mediterranean] sea" as the apostate (once) Protestant church is the image unto the beast of Papal Rome.
5. When this last pope is incarnate by the Devil at the close of the Gentile dispensation he will cause all of the non-elect to make obeisance to himself. This expression of profound reverence will be equivalent to worshipping Satan, the Dragon incarnate (Isaiah 14:13-14; II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 13:4, 8, 15-18).
6. "The Jesuits were the soldiers of the pope: they knew no law but the will of their general, no mode of worship but the pope's dictate, no church but themselves." This is a revealing statement (based perhaps on research by the late F. Tupper Saussy's Rulers of Evil) because the Jesuits, like the Roman Catholic church itself (Revelation 2:6, 9, 13, 15), are a Jewish organization. Om page 574 of "La Revue de Paris," (June 1, 1928), the archivist Salluste cited from A Letter from Baruch Levy to Karl Marx: "The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races [miscegenation by 'multiculturalism'], by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship."
And on page 572, "In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands".
"Edom is modern Jewry" (Encyclopaedica Judaica, 1925; Isaiah 34; 63; Obadiah; Malachi 1:1-4; Revelation 19:11-21).
"Jews began to call themselves Hebrews and Israelites in 1860" (Encyclopedia Judaica 1971, Vol 10:23).
"Strictly speaking it is INCORRECT to call an Ancient Israelite a Jew or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew" (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3). But of course, they are not Hebrews or Israelites, or Semites.
The late Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Zionist organizer and Chief Rabbi of the United States said, "The return from Babylon and the introduction of the Babylonian Talmud mark the end of Hebrewism and the beginning of Judaism." It is well known among students of the Talmud that it is the antithesis to Moses and the prophets (Matthew 15:1-9), and that Judaism is Pharisaism and the antithesis to Yahwism.
Dr. Hugo Winkler and Leonard King wrote, "Judaism was not evolved in Judah. . . It was in Babylonia that Judaism first became that which it was and still is" (The Hebrew Peoples," Harmsworth History of the World).
Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser wrote, "This is not an uncommon impression and one finds it sometimes among Jews as well as Christiansthat Judaism is the religion of the Hebrew Bible. It is, of course, a fallacious impression. . . Judaism is not the religion of the Bible" (Judaism and the Christian Predicament, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1967, p. 59). [Correct, Judaism is heretical Pharisaism, the antithesis of Moses and the prophets.
Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits concurred, "This book of eternal inspiration [the Bible] has ceased to inspire modern Jewry, and what is more, it is almost unknown to the great majority of them" (Towards Historic Judaism, 1943 p.52).
Rabbi Moshe M. Maggal, President, National Jewish Information Service wrote, ". . . you will notice the great difference between the Jewish and Christian religions. But these are not all. We consider the two religions so different that one excludes the other . . . we emphasized that there is no such thing as a Judeo-Christian religion. . . There is not any similarity between the two concepts" (Letter of August 21, 1961).
While The London Jewish World (March 15, 1923) declared: "Fundamentally, Judaism is anti-Christian".
"Judaism is Communism, this symbol of chaos and of the spirit of destruction, is above all an anti-Christian and anti-social conception. This present destructive tendency is clearly advantageous for only one national and religious entity: Judaism" (Weltkampf, July 1924, p. 21; The Secret Powers Behind Revolution, by Vicomte Leon De Poncins, p. 140).
In Judaism Volume 32, published in 1983 by the American Jewish Congress, they quote from the Talmud as follows: "When the Messiah comes, all will be slaves to Israel" [A perverse understanding of Isaiah 66].
As above from a sanitised transliteration of Eiruvin 43b from the Soncino edition of the Babylonian Talmud: "the moment the Messiah comes all will be anxious to serve [as slaves of] Israel".
In Shabbath 32b, you will observe that each Jew is promised 2,800 slaves in the "messianic age." Now you know the origin of Judaeo-Roman Islam and the Talmudic root of Islam's seventy-two virgins to every man.
Chief Rabbi of the United States Stephen S. Wise declared, "Some call it Marxism I call it Judaism" (The American Bulletin, May 5, 1935).
"It is not an accident that Judaism gave birth to Marxism, and it is not an accident that the Jews readily took up Marxism; all this was in perfect accord with the progress of Judaism and the Jews. The Jews should realize that Jehovah no longer dwells in heaven, but he dwells in us right here on earth; we must no longer look up to Jehovah as above us and outside of us, but we must see him right within us" (Rabbi Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity and an Answer to All Anti-Semites, p. 148).
Hence the paradox of so many Jewish Communists purportedly being "Atheists." These people had no need to believe in a transcendent God, since, as the master race, they themselves were "G_d." The Jewish people as a whole were their own Messiah.
On page 90 Waton noted: "Since the Jews are the highest and most cultured people on earth, the Jews have a right to subordinate to themselves the rest of mankind and to be the masters over the whole earth. Now, indeed, this is the historic destiny of the Jews." And on page 100: "Judaism is communism, internationalism, the universal brotherhood of man, the emancipation of the working class and the human society. It is with these spiritual weapons that the Jews will conquer the world and the human race."
In its article on Messianic Movements, the Encyclopedia Judaica writes (p. 121): "In his letters Leopold Zunz referred many times to the European revolution of 1848 as 'the Messiah.' Even many Jews who left the faith tended to invest secular liberation movements with a messianic glow".
"Thanks to the terrible power of our International banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have a special value for Jews, since Christians massacre each other and make more room for us Jews. Wars are the Jews' Harvest; the Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. Over one hundred million Christians have been swept off the face of the earth by wars, and the end is not yet" (Rabbi Reichorn at the funeral of Grand Rabbi Simeon Ben-Judah, 1869).
Rosh Hashanah 17a: "Christians [minim (i.e. heretics)] and others who reject the Talmud will go to hell and be punished there for all generations".
Sanhedrin 90a: "Those who read the New Testament ["uncanonical books"] will have no portion in the world to come".
Shabbath 116a: "Jews must destroy the books of the Christians [i.e. the New Testament]".
Dr. Israel Shahak of Hebrew University reports that the Israelis burned hundreds of New Testament Bibles in occupied Palestine on March 23, 1980 (Jewish History, Jewish Religion, p. 21).
"The Hebrew form of the name Jesus–Yeshu–was interpreted as an acronym for the curse, 'may his name and memory be wiped out,' which is used as an extreme form of abuse. In fact, anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews (such as Neturey Karta) sometimes refer to Herzl as 'Herzl Jesus' and I have found in religious Zionist writings expressions such as "Nasser Jesus" and more recently 'Arafat Jesus" (Jewish History, Jewish Religion, pp. 97-98, 118).
Sanhedrin 43a: Jesus ("Yeshu" and in Soncino footnote #6, Yeshu "the Nazarene") was executed because he practiced sorcery: "It is taught that on the eve of Passover Jesus was hung, and forty days before this the proclamation was made: Jesus is to be stoned to death because he has practiced sorcery and has lured the people to idolatry . . . He was an enticer and of such thou shalt not pity or condone".
Gittin 57a: Jesus is in hell, being boiled in "hot excrement".
"Israelis today . . . are not basing their religion on the ethics of justice. They do not accept the Old Testament as it is written. Rather, religious Jews turn to the Talmud. For them, the Talmudic Jewish laws become "the Bible." And the Talmud teaches that a Jew can kill a non-Jew with impunity" (What Christians Don't Know About Israel by Grace Halsell).
"Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer" (Harold Rosenthal, aide to Senator Jacob Javits, The Hidden Tyranny 1976).
Neither the modern popes or the modern heads of Protestantism, have ever insisted that the rabbis of Judaism repudiate or condemn the racism in the Talmud or the murderous hate for Christians and Gentiles expressed within it. On the contrary, the heads of Churchianity have urged the followers of Christ to obey, honor and support the followers of the Talmud. Therefore, it should be obvious that these Catholic and Protestant leaders are the worst betrayers of Jesus Christ on earth today (Matthew 23:13-15; I Thessalonians 2:14-16; Titus 1:14; Luke 3:8-9; Revelation 3:9; hence Matthew 25:6 and Revelation 18:4).
7. All of the education and history, which guides our thinking, is franchised to the Jewish Rockefeller organization (Reece Committee of the US Congress in 1953).
8. "Protestants and Catholics have written about a clandestine war that has been playing out for some time behind the scenes between the papacy and the Jesuit order. We will speculate what this could mean between Pope Francis . . . and the coming of an alien savior." The 1967 Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace planted such unheard of scenarios in the public mind as gross pollution of the environment as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species [the climate change-CO2 hoax and scam]; an open-ended space program aimed at unreachable targets [the Moon landing hoax; "Star Wars"]; and fictitious alternative enemies such as "creatures" from other planets.
This non-existent threat of an invasion by aliens from other worlds was also announced by Henry Kissinger, Ronald Reagan and George Bush (bibliotecapleyades.net). Wernher Von Braun taught that the strategy was that "first the Russians are going to be considered to be the enemy. . . Then terrorists would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot about terrorism [MOSSAD's Abu Nidal, NATO's Gladio and CIA's al Qaeda]. Then we were going to identify third-world country "crazies" [Presidents Saddam Hussein, Ahmadinejad, Al-Assad, and Col. Gaddafi]. . . But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we would build space-based weapons. The next enemy was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time he said it. "Asteroidsagainst asteroids we are going to build space-based weapons!!" And the funniest one of all was what he called aliens, extraterrestrials. . . He mentioned that extraterrestrials were going to be identified as the final enemy against whom we were going to build space-based weapons back in 1974" (Newsletters 516 and 634). Newsletter 777 reported Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and the Vatican Observatory are also now promoting belief in extraterrestrial beings; then there is HAARP and Project Blue Beam; clearly all fingers of the 'hidden hand' are involved as players in this deceptive endtime gameplan of fear.
I expect "clandestine war" refers to rivalry between the Superior General or so-called Black Pope of the Society of Jesus and White Pope over stratagems of the Judaeo-Roman church for global hegemony. Whereas Benedict XVI, sent a polite but firm letter inviting the order's worldwide members to pledge "total adhesion" to Catholic doctrine, including on divorce, homosexuality and liberation theology, in particular their fourth vow of absolute obedience to the pope, only loyal members of 35 years with no hint of dissent or original thought qualify for the fourth and highest vow of initiation, and pragmatic Jesuitry mandates "the end justifies the means" thus "It is no sin to kill a heretic". nl780.htm
"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon" (Revelation 13:11). Indeed this second beast—the false prophet—is predicted to be viewed "like a lamb" and the accolades afforded the new pontiff on 3/13/2013 at 20:13 support that notion. 4 As Protestants, we feel well within our rights to assert all claimants to Pontifex Maximus Vicar of Christ as false prophets.[xi] Please do not be fooled by the media's unwitting accolades concerning Pope Francis' feigned humility, this man believes he is literally Christ on Earth, or he would not accept the title of Vicar of Christ. All the same, if the predictions of St. Malachy are truly at their fruition, then the second beast, the one from the Earth called the "false prophet" (Revelation 16:13; 19:20; 20:10) may well be Pope Francis in the role of Petrus Romanus who, unwittingly or not, will lead the world to worship the dragon. 5 Interestingly, his namesake St. Francis of Assisi would agree.
Comment: Brother R. Thomas Horn is to be commended for his excellent investigative journalism. Our commentary is based on the end-time Message of William Marrion Branham, the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11, Revelation 1:1, 3:14 and 10:7 in Light of his THUS SAITH THE LORD, and Scripture supplemented by diverse authoritative sources which at times differ from the conclusions of our author.
