The Catholic Church, The Pope, and The Antichrist Papal Prophecies
(Papal Prophecies — Part 6)

Amos 3:7 — "Surely the Lord God will do nothing but that He revealeth His secret unto His servants the Prophets."

St. Malachy

For the last 5 months in these "End-Times Trumpet" articles, I have been explaining the fulfillment of "The Papal Prophecies of St. Malachy", a series of 112 Prophecies that were given in a "vision" (as he claimed) to a Catholic Bishop — Malachy O'Morgair — in the year 1140 as he was on an expedition from his home parish in Armagh, Ireland to Rome to see "the Holy City" and the Pope.

I have shown you, in those articles, that the first 111 of the "Papal Prophecies" were absolutely, beyond doubt, and without question fulfilled from the reign of Pope Celestine II (1143-1144) through the reign of Pope Benedict XVI (2005-2013) which shows the absolute correctness of Amos 3:7 — "Surely the Lord God will do nothing but that He revealeth His secret unto His servants the Prophets" (and St. Malachy" was, without doubt, a "Prophet").

The 112th and final "Papal Prophecy" says "In extreme persecution, the Seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed his sheep through many Tribulations" (The "Great Tribulation" — Matt. 24:21) "at the term" (end) "of which the seven-hilled city" (Rome) "will be destroyed and the Formidable Judge" (Jesus Christ — at His "Second Coming") "will judge the people." As I showed you in last month's "End-Times Trumpet", I believe that it is quite likely that this 112th and final "Papal Prophecy" will be fulfilled by the reign of the current Pope Francis. However, whether or not that 112th "Papal Prophecy" does indeed see fulfillment by the reign of Pope Francis or not remains to be seen, as time will tell.

If the "Papal Prophecies" remain successively unbroken from the 111th to the 112th Prophecies, then without question, the 112th Papal Prophecy will be fulfilled by the reign of Pope Francis, which if that turns out to be the case, then that means that the "Rapture Of The Church" (when Christ comes in the clouds to catch up His Church into Heaven) (1 Thess. 4:13-17) must occur during the reign of the current Pope Francis as the 112th Papal Prophecy concerns events that will occur in the Catholic Church and the Vatican during the time of the "Great Tribulation" (that follows the "Rapture Of The Church"). However, if the 112th "Papal Prophecy" does not see fulfillment during the reign of Pope Francis then that means that there must be a "gap" between the 111th and 112th Papal Prophecies, as the 111th Papal Prophecy — the prophecy of "The Glory Of The Olive" — was definitely fulfilled by the reign of Pope Benedict XVI, and the 112th Papal Prophecy must be fulfilled by the reign of "Peter The Roman" during the "Great Tribulation", just as in the Book of Daniel there is a "gap" of 2000 years between the fulfillment of the "69th Week" and the "70th" Week" of the "70 Week Prophecy" which reads: Dan. 9:24 — "Seventy Weeks are determined upon your people and upon the Holy City" (Jerusalem) "to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy."

In this "70 Week" Prophecy, each "Week" is a period of 7 years, and the "69th Week" was fulfilled by the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, as was foretold in Dan. 9:26 — "And after threescore" (60) "and two Weeks shall Messiah be cut off (put to death). After the fulfillment of the "69th Week" - the crucifixion of Jesus Christ (the "Messiah" being "cut off) the fulfillment of the prophecy stopped and a "gap" began between the "69th Week" and the "70th Week", which has now continued some 2000 years, as the "70th Week" concerns the reign of the Antichrist during the time of the "Great Tribulation", as is described in Dan. 9:27 — "And he" (Antichrist — "the Prince that shall come" of Dan. 9:26) "shall confirm a Covenant with many" (the Israeli's, the Arabs, America, Russia, the United Nations, and the European Union) "for one Week" (7 years), which is how the future "Great Tribulation" will begin.

So, whether or not the 112th Papal Prophecy of St. Malachy comes to pass during the reign of Pope Francis or not remains to be seen. However the events foretold for the Catholic Church, the Pope, and the Vatican by the 112th Papal Prophecy will definitely see fulfillment, if not during the reign of Pope Francis, then during the reign of some future Pope, as those events are also foretold in the Bible in Rev. 17. With that understanding, let us look now at the prophecy of Rev. 17.

Rev. 17:1 — "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials and talked with me, saying unto me: 'Come here and I will show you the judgment of the Great Whore" (Harlot) "that sets upon many waters." — The "many waters" of this prophecy is a prophetic symbol of "many nations" all over the World. This is seen by the prophetic explanation given in Verse 15 — "And he said unto me: 'The waters which you saw, where the Whore" (Harlot) "sets are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues." — This is fulfilled by the fact that the Catholic Church (who the "Whore/Harlot" is symbolic of) has churches, Priests, and Bishops, and influence in many nations all over the World. This was also seen at the official installation/inauguration of Pope Francis as The Washington Post — March 19, 2013 — reported that at the installation / inauguration of Pope Francis there were "Representatives from 132 Nations including many Heads of State".

Rev. 17:2 — "With whom the Kings of the Earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication." — The "fornication" spoken of here is a prophetic reference to the "spiritual fornication" of the worship of Mary as "The Queen Of Heaven" and "The Mother of God", promoted by the Catholic Church,

as well as the worship of "Saints", "Images", and "Angels", as Ezek. 23:37 says "with their Idols have they committed adultery." The Catholic Church has caused the "inhabitants of the Earth" to "become drunk" (out of touch with actual spiritual reality and spiritually deluded) by teaching them that if they pray to Mary, Images, Saints, or Angels that they will have their sins forgiven and be given entrance into Heaven. We note, also, that the reason why this "Woman" is called a "Whore" or "Harlot" is because she is guilty of practicing the "spiritual harlotry" of Image worship, Mary worship, "Saints" worship, and Angel worship. Also referring to that Rev. 2, in "The Letter To Thyatira" (in which the "woman" is referred to prophetically by the name of "Jezebel") says — in Verse 20 — "she teaches and seduces my servants to commit fornication". And then Verse 21 says "And I gave her space to repent of her fornication" — this is a prophetic reference to the Protestant Reformation when God raised up the Catholic Priest Martin Luthor to call for the Catholic Church to repent of her "Maryolotry" and to return to the Scripture/Doctrine of the "The just shall live by Faith". But rather then repenting, they excommunicated Martin Luther.

Rev. 17:4 — "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color and decked with gold." — These colors of "Purple, Scarlet, and Gold" — which are the colors of the apparal of the Harlot Woman — are colors that identify her as the Catholic Church, as was seen at the installation/inauguration of Pope Francis. The Washington Post in their article of March 19, 2013 on the installation of Pope Francis, wrote: "A double line of the Churches Cardinals... were clad in golden robes... many Heads of State sat opposite red-capped Cardinals and purple clad Bishops."

Rev. 17:4 — "...and precious stones and pearls..." — The "precious stones and pearls" are a prophetic reference to the "Rosary Beads" that are used in prayer by Roman Catholics.

Rev. 17:5 - "And upon her forehead was a name written: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." — The reason why the Catholic Church is here called "Mystery Babylon" is because of the fact that many of her religious practices originated from the ancient Kingdom of Babylon, which religion — "The Babylonian Cult" — later relocated to Rome and became the "Pagan Religion" of the Roman Empire, in which the Emperors took the title of Pontifex Maximus, which title is now the official title of the Pope, and Ishtar the "Queen Of Heaven" of Babylon became Mary the Queen of Heaven of Roman Catholicism (see my previous articles on "Babylon — Pt. 1 and Pt. 2).

An ancient inscription, from ancient Babylon, concerning the "goddess" Ishtar being the "Queen Of Heaven" quotes Ishtar as saying "Bigger than the mountains am I, the Empress of the gods am I, the Queen of Heaven am I, the Earth's Mistress am I."

Rev. 17: 6 — "And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the Saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus..." — This Verse is a prophetic reference to the fact that after Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation, several succeeding Popes began and implemented the "Inquisition" in which they literally had thousands of born-again, and even "Spirit-filled" believers put to death as "heretics" for leaving the Catholic Church and for rebelling against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

Rev. 17:9 — "The seven heads are seven mountains on which the Woman sets." — This Verse is prophetic of the fact that Rome — the capitol/headquarters of Roman Catholicism — is built upon "7 hills", which is why she is called "the seven-hilled city" in Malachy's Prophecy. The "7 Mountains" (7 Hills) upon which Rome is built are the hills of (1) Aventine Hill, (2) Caelian Hill, (3) Capitoline Hill, (4) Esquiline Hill, (5) Palatine Hill, (6) Quirinal Hill, (7) Viminal Hill.

Further proof that this "Harlot Woman" of Rev. 17 is the Roman Catholic Church headquartered out of the city of Rome, is seen in the identification of her in Rev. 17:18 — "And the woman which you saw is that great city which reigns over the Kings of the Earth." — At the time that John wrote the Book of Revelation, the "great city that reigned over the Kings of the Earth" was Rome, which at that time, was the Capitol/ Headquarters of the Roman Empire. After the downfall of the Roman Empire the Christians of Rome took over Rome as their religious headquarters, which then became and continues to be up to this day, the Capitol of Roman Catholicism, which, even today, continues to "reign over the Kings of the Earth" (by exerting great influence over the Kings, Presidents, and Premiers of the Earth).

Rev. 17:3 — I saw the woman sit upon a scarlet-colored Beast, full of names of blasphemy..." — The "scarlet-colored" (which speaks of bloodshed) "Beast" here is the same "Beast" of Rev. 13 which is a prophetic symbol of the Antichrist and his Kingdom. The fact that the "Harlot Woman" (the Catholic Church of Rome) is seen "setting" (riding) upon the Beast, shows that
A harlot rides a beast with ten horns.
Fig. 5. A harlot rides a beast with ten horns. (Rev.17) What is God telling us? (Illustration Credit: endtimepilgrim.org)
when the Antichrist rises to power, the Catholic Church will make an Alliance with him because she will not realize that he is the Antichrist, and they will want to influence him and his Kingdom for their Catholic version of Christianity, which they believe is the one and only true version of Christianity. However, anything that the Catholic Church comes into Alliance with they want to dominate, which is why the "Woman" is seen "riding" the "Beast". This was foreshadowed by two previous Popes making Alliances with "little anti- christs". Pope Pius VII signed a "Concordant" with the "little antichrist" Napoleon Bonaparte, after which Napoleon took the Pope prisoner, and also Pope Pius XI, through his Papal Secretary Of State Pacelli, who later became the next Pope Pius XII, signed a "Concordant" with the "little antichrist" Adolf Hitler, after which Adolf Hitler turned against the Catholic Church and became an enemy of the Catholic Church.

At about the mid-point of the Tribulation the Antichrist will receive a "mortal wound" in his head by a sword/long knife, which will seem to kill him, but from which he will miraculously revive (Rev. 13:12; Zech. 11:17). After he revives from his deadly wound, Antichrist will believe himself to be "God" and will announce to the World that he is "God" and will require everyone on the Earth to worship him as "God" (II Thess. 2:4; Dan. 7:25; Rev. 13:12). When Antichrist announces to the World that he is "God" and demands that everyone worship him as God, the Catholic Church and the Pope will turn against him and begin denouncing him, and perhaps even identifying him as the "Antichrist". When they do that, the Antichrist will become an enemy of the Catholic Church and the Pope and will march his Army into Italy and take control of the city of Rome and make it the Capitol of his "Revived Roman Empire", as it was the Capitol of the original ancient Roman Empire, and since the Catholic Church occupies the Vatican in Rome, he will destroy the Vatican, try to destroy the Catholic Church, and perhaps even kill the Pope. All this is foretold in Rev. 17:16 — "And the ten horns" (10 Nations of Antichrist's "Revived Roman Empire") "which you saw upon the Beast" (the Antichrist) "these shall hate the Whore" (the Catholic Church) "and shall make her desolate" (will destroy the Vatican and empty it of Roman Catholic Priests, Bishops, Cardinals, and the Pope) "and naked" (will steal the Catholic Church's wealth) "and burn her with fire" (burn the Vatican).

Vatican City

This destruction of the Vatican was also foreseen by a vision by Pope Pius X in the year 1909 which he described by saying: "What I see is terrifying! Will it be myself? Or will it be a successor? What is certain is that the Pope will have to quit Rome and in leaving the Vatican will have to walk over the dead bodies of the Priests."

The destruction of the Vatican, as well as the assassination of the Pope was also seen by three "shepherd children" — Lucia Santos and her two cousins — in a vision that was supposedly given to them in Fatima, Portugal in the year 1917 (which I described in my last "End-Times Trumpet" article titled "Is Pope Francis The Last Pope"). Consult that article for that illustration. This is also what is foretold for the 112th and last of the "Papal Prophecies of St. Malachy" in which he wrote prophetically: "In extreme persecution, the Seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman who will feed his sheep " (his Catholic "flock") "through many Tribulations" (the "Great Tribulation" — Matt. 24:21) "at the term " (at the end of) "of which the city of seven hills " (Rome) "will be destroyed" (by the armies of the Antichrist) "and then the Formidable Judge " (Jesus Christ) "will return and judge the people."

Now the question is: Will this take place during the reign of Pope Francis? Is Pope Francis the "Peter The Roman" of the 112th Papal Prophecy? We will just have to wait and see as time will tell! But one thing is for certain and that is the fact that we had all better be ready for the coming of the Lord in the event of the "Rapture", because if Pope Francis is the "Peter the Roman" of Malachy's prophecy, then that means that Jesus is coming SOON! And the Tribulation is "just around the corner"! Even so, COME LORD JESUS!
