Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI — A Sign Of The End?
(Papal Prophecies — Part 4)

by Pastor/Evangelist Len Hutsell
This article has been viewed 1806 times.

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

For the past three months, in this "End-Times Trumpet" I have been explaining the prophecies and their interpretations of a prophecy given (in a vision which he believed was from God) to a Catholic Bishop named Malachy O'Morgair on an expedition that he made to Rome from his home and post of ministry in Armagh, Ireland in the year 1140, in which he felt that the Lord showed him the reigns of the next 112 Popes, which he described in a Latin prophetic phrase for each of those Popes, with the 112th being the last Pope of the Catholic Church, at which time the Vatican would be destroyed (by the Antichrist as is taught in Rev. 17).

Last month I concluded with prophecy #100, so I will pick up this month with prophecy #101 — the prophecy of Pope Pius IX — and I will continue through the prophecy of Pope Benedict XVI, which is prophecy #111.

101) Pope Pius IX (June 16, 1846 — Feb. 7, 1878)
     Prophecy: "Crux De Cruce" ("A Cross From A Cross")
     Interpretation: He — Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti — was born in the city of Senigallia and the municipal Coat-Of-Arms of Senigallia pictures a tree with left and right arms thus making the form
Victor Emmanuel II, Italian Royalty House of Savoy Coat of Arms
Fig. 2. Victor Emmanuel II, Italian Royalty House of Savoy Coat of Arms. (Illustration Credit: www.wikipedia.org)
of a "Cross"; he served as the Archbishop of Spoleto and the Coat-Of-Arms of Spoleto has a "Cross" on it, so that in becoming the Archbishop of Spoleto, he went "from a Cross" (Senigallia) "to a Cross" (Spoleto). During his reign as Pope he lost temporal control of the Papal States as King Victor Emmanuel II — the King of Italy — on the date of Sept. 18, 1860 defeated the Papal Army and took temporal control of all of Rome, allowing Pope Pius IX the use ofthe Vatican but denied sovereignty over that territory, and refused to allow the Pope to fly the yellow and white Papal Banner over the Vatican but instead flew the red and white Coat-Of-Arms flag of the "House Of Savoy" over the Vatican, which was "a cross" for Pope Pius IX to bear caused by "the Cross" of the "House of Savoy". Pope Pius IX was "Beatified" during the reign of Pope Pius XII with the words "per crucem ad lucem," which means "Through the Cross to light".

102) Pope Leo XIII (Feb. 20, 1878 — July 20, 1903)
     Prophecy: "Lumen In Coelo" ("Light In The Sky")
     Fulfillment: His — Vincenzo Giacchino Raffaelle Luigi Pecci — Papal Coat-Of-Arms pictured a "Comet" or "Shooting Star" on it, which was a "light in the sky".

Papal Coat-Of-Arms

103) Pope Pius X (Aug. 9, 1903 — Aug. 20, 1914)
     Prophecy: "Ignis Ardens" ("Burning Fire")
     Fulfillment: His — Giuseppe Malchiorre Sarto -Papal Coat-Of-Arms pictured a Star shining in the sky and a Star is a "burning fire" body in Outer Space. Also, during the reign of Pope Pius X a huge Meteor — on the date of June 30, 1908 — exploded over Tunguska, Siberia in Russia with a detonation that was equal to a nuclear explosion of more then 30 megatons that flattened an estimated 80 million trees over 830 square miles filling the sky with "burning fire" that was seen as far away as London, England.

Papal Prophecy of Pope Pius X: Pope Pius X was a man that was given to visions and in the year 1909, while granting an audience Pope Pius X leaned back in his chair closed his eyes and went into a momentary "trance" and saw a vision of the destruction of the Vatican by the Antichrist during the time of the future "Tribulation" and then opening his eyes he sat up and said: "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!"

104) Pope Benedict XV (Sept. 3, 1914 — Jan. 22, 1922)
     Prophecy: "Religio Depopulata" ("Religion Depopulated")
     Fulfillment: He — Giacomo Paolo Giovanni Battista della Chiesa — reigned as Pope during the years of World War I, which as a result of the war millions of people, including thousands and perhaps millions of Christians, died as casualties of the war; also the Soviet Union rose to power at that time and in doing so put to death two million Orthodox Christians; the Spanish Influenza also broke out and spread world-wide during that period of tune from June 1918 to December 1920 and took the lives of 50,000 to 100,000 people many of whom were Christians, so that as a result of the wars of World War I and the rise of the Soviet Union and the world-wide spread of the Spanish Influenza, around 225 million Christians died during the reign of Pope Benedict XV, thus greatly "depopulating religion".

105) Pope Pius XI (Feb. 6, 1922 — Feb. 10, 1939)
     Prophecy: "Fides Intrepida" ("Intrepid Faith")
     Fulfillment: He — Ambrogio Damiano Achille Ratti — reigned as Pope during the rise to power of Adolf Hitler in Germany and the rise to power of Joseph Stalin in Russia. Not knowing the kind of man that Adolf Hitler would become, Pope Pius XI (through his Cardinal Secretary Of State — Cardinal Pacelli — [who became the next Pope Pius XII]) signed a "Concordant" with the SS regime of Adolf Hitler, foreshadowing the fact that the Pope of the Tribulation time will also sign a "Concordant" (Peace Alliance/Agreement) with the Antichrist, as is foretold in Rev. 17:3. The way that Pope Pius XI fulfilled the Papal Prophecy of "Intrepid Faith" is by the fact that after he learned what kind of a man that Adolf Hitler really was, he began speaking out against Hitler and his persecution of the Jewish people. In 1938 he issued an official paper that said: "Mark well that in the Catholic Mass Abraham is our Patriarch and forefather. Anti-Semitism is incompatible with the lofty thought which that fact expresses. It" (Anti-Semitism) "is a movement which we Christians can have nothing to do with. No no I say to you that it is impossible for a Christian to take part in Anti-Semitism. It is inadmissible through Christ for in Christ we are all the spiritual prodigy of Abraham." Further exhibiting his "Intrepid Faith" concerning the Nazi fallacies in their conception of God, he wrote: "Whoever exalts race or the people or the State or the depositories of power or any other fundamental value of the human commodity, however necessary and honorable be their function in worldly things, whoever raises those notions above the standard value and divines them to an idolatrous level, distorts and perverts an order of the World planned and created by God; he is far from THE TRUE FAITH in God and the concept of life which that FAITH upholds."

106) Pope Pius XII (Mar. 2, 1939 — Oct. 9, 1958)
     Prophecy: "Pastor Angelicus" ("Angelic Pastor")
     Fulfillment: He — Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli — even though some called him "Hitler's Pope" because he, as Cardinal Secretary Of State, was the one that signed the "Concordant" with Adolf Hitler in behalf of Pope Pius XI, also fulfilled the Papal Prophecy of "Angelic Pastor" in that as Pope he was the "Pastor" of all the Catholics all around the World and the prophetic word "Pastor" seemed to foretell his last name of "Pacelli" in that the name "Pacelli" means "peaceful" and it is the duty of "Pastors" to help people find "peace" with God. Also, the prophetic word "Angelic" (which means "Heavenly") could have been a prophetic reference to his papal name of "Pius" (which also means "godly", "righteous", or "heavenly"). As a Cardinal, before he became Pope, Cardinal Pacelli also studied after St. Thomas Aquinas, who was called an "Angelic Doctor". As Pope he also spoke out against the persecution of the Jews by Adolf Hitler in World War II and helped to hide thousands of Jews in the Vatican and in Monasteries. Pinchas Lapide, a Jewish theologian, estimated that Pope Pius XII saved at least 700,000 Jews from certain death at the hands of the Nazi's.

107) Pope John XXIII (Oct. 28, 1958 — June 3, 1963)
     Prophecy: "Pastor Et Nauta" ("Pastor And Mariner")
     Fulfillment: He — Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli — as Pope was the "Pastor" of all the Catholics all around the World. Before being elected as Pope he was the "Patriarch Of Venice" and Venice is known as a city of "Mariners"; as Pope he also convened "Vatican II" which had as it's symbols a "Boat" representing "the Barque of Peter" and thus represented Pope John XXIII as a "Mariner", and a "Cross" which thus symbolized Pope John XXIII as a "Pastor".

108) Pope Paul VI (June 21, 1963 — Aug. 6, 1978)
     Prophecy: "Flos Florum" ("Flower Of Flowers")
     Fulfillment: His — Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini — Papal Coat-Of-Arms pictured 3 "Fluer-de-Lys" which are "Lilly" flowers,
Papal Coat-Of-Arms
Fig. 5. Papal Coat Of Arms Of Pope Paul VI. (Illustration Credit: www.wikipedia.org)
which could be considered the "Flower Of Flowers" in that the "Lilly" is the "Easter Flower" which is a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and the fact that there are 3 Lillys ("Fluer-de-Lys") on his Coat-Of-Arms speaks of the 3 Persons of the "Trinity Of God": Jehovah God the Father who raised Christ Jesus from the dead on Easter, Jesus Christ the eternal Son-of-God who raised from the dead on Easter, and the Holy Spirit who "quickened" (brought back to life from the dead) the Person of Jesus Christ.


109) Pope John Paul I (Aug. 26, 1978 — Sept. 28, 1978)
     Prophecy: "De Medietate Lunae" ("The Half Moon")
     Fulfillment: His — Albino Luciati — name meant "White Light" which is the color of "light" given off by the Moon; he was born in Forno-di-Canale in the Province of Belluno in the Veneto Region of Italy, and the name "Belluno" means "Beautiful Moon", and the Coat-Of-Arms of the Veneto Region pictures a Lion with "Half a Moon" behind it's head; he was born on the date of Oct. 17, 1912 when the Moon was at a "Half Moon" stage in the sky; before becoming Pope he was the "Patriarch Of Venice" and the Coat-Of-Arms of the city of Venice also pictures a Lion with "Haifa Moon" behind it's head; on the date of Aug. 26,1978 when he was elected as Pope the Moon that night was at a "Half Moon" stage; there was an "Eclipse of the Moon" just a few days before he mysteriously died on the date of Sept. 28, 1978 (seeming to signify an "eclipse of his papacy"); a "Half Moon" is an "incomplete Moon" and he had an "incomplete papal reign" of only 32 days before his mysterious death when he was found dead in bed at 4:45 AM on the date of Sept. 28, 1978.

110) Pope John Paul II (Oct. 16, 1978 — April 2, 2005)
     Prophecy: "De Lahore Solis" ("The Labor Of The Sun")
     Fulfillment: He — Karol Jozef Wojtyla — was born on the date of May 18, 1920 and on that same day there was an "Eclipse of the Sun" over Europe, and the ancients taught that when the Sun is "eclipsed" that it has to "labor" to reappear; also on the date of the funeral and entombment of Pope John Paul II — April 8, 2005 — there was another "Eclipse of the Sun", as is documented by this Associated Press news article from the Corpus Christi Caller-Times published Saturday, April 9, 2005:

Pope Benedictus XVI

111) Pope Benedict XVI (April 19, 2005 — Feb. 28, 2013) (Resigned to become the "Emeritus Pope")
     Prophecy: "De Gloria Olivae" ("The Glory Of The Olive")
     Fulfillment: He — Joseph Alois Ratzinger — when he "resigned"/"retired" from his position as the reigning Pope, shocked the World in that he was the first Pope in over 600 years to "resign" or "retire". The ways in which his election as Pope — on the date of April 19, 2005 — fulfilled the prophetic designation of "The Glory Of The Olive" was: Pope Benedict XVI's connection with Israel: In Rom. 11:17 the Nation of Israel is called a "good Olive tree" and in connection with that, we note:

(1) The official installation of Pope Benedict XVI was on the date of April 24, 2005 which was also the date of the celebration of the Jewish Passover, and in his speech/homily that day Pope Benedict XVI said: "I want to extend my greetings to the Jewish people all over the World who are my brothers and sisters."

(2) Pope Benedict XVI's actual first name is "Joseph" which is a Jewish name and was also the name of "Joseph the Patriarch", who, because he "saved" the Jewish people from starvation during a time of famine, when he brought them down to live in Egypt where he — as Prime Minister — provided for them, could have been called "the glory of the Olive-tree nation of Israel". Also Joseph was taken out of prison to be exalted to the position of Prime Minister of Egypt and in comparison Joseph Ratzinger, when he was a young soldier in the military of Adolf Hitler in Germany was taken "Prisoner Of War" by the US and put in a "prison camp" but then later was exalted to be the "Pope".

(3) Pope Benedict XVI's parents were named "Joseph and Maria ("Mary")" the same names as the earthly parents of Jesus Christ — "Joseph and Mary" — and Jesus Christ, in his earthly body, was a Jew. Because Jesus Christ was/is also the "Messiah" of Israel and the "Savior of the World", He could also have been given the designation of "the Glory of the Olive-tree nation of Israel".

Papal Coat of Arms

(4) The Papal Coat-Of-Arms of Pope Benedict XVI has a picture of a "Moor's Head" (an Ethiopian King) on it named "Prestor John" and when Ethiopia had Kings, the Kings of Ethiopia traced their ancestry back to the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon of Israel (I Kings 10:1-13). Because the Papal Coat-Of-Arms of Pope Benedict XVI has a picture of an Ethiopian King on it and because the Kings of Ethiopia traced their ancestry back to King Solomon of Israel, this also ties Pope Benedict XVI in with the nation of Israel.

(5) While still serving as Pope, Pope Benedict made a trip to Israel where, before he left Israel, he made a visit to the President of Israel and planted an "Olive Tree" in his yard as a symbol of his visit to Israel, thus identifying himself as "The Glory Of The Olive" Pope.

The Dedication Of The Papacy Of Pope Benedict XVI To "World Peace" In Honor Of Pope Benedict XV: An internet article about Pope Benedict XVI, after he was elected as Pope, quoted Pope Benedict dedicating his Papacy to "World Peace" in memory/honor of/to Pope Benedict XV, in which Pope Benedict XVI stated: "Filled with sentiments of awe and thanksgiving, I want to speak of why I chose the name 'Benedict'. Firstly I remember Pope Benedict XV" (the Pope who reigned during World War I, who offered a "Peace Plan" to bring an end to World War I) that courageous Prophet of Peace, who guided the Church through turbulent times of War. I place my ministry in the service of reconciliation and harmony between peoples."

St. Benedict of Nursia

In dedicating his Papacy to/and in memory of Pope Benedict XV, Pope Benedict XVI was dedicating his Papacy to "World Peace" and the symbol of "peace" is an "Olive Branch". The Choice Of The Name "Benedict" In Memory Of and Honor To "St. Benedict Of Nursia": In choosing to call himself by the papal name of "Benedict", Pope Benedict XVI chose that name in honor of and memory of "St. Benedict of Nursia" who lived from 480-543 and founded the "Benedictine Order" in the Catholic Church. Concerning the choice of the name "Benedict", Pope Benedict XVI said — on the date of April 27, 2005 — "Additionally I recall Saint Benedict Of Nursia, co-patron of Europe, whose life evokes the Christian roots of Europe. I ask him to help us all hold firm to the centrality of Christ in our Christian life: may Christ always take first place in our thoughts and actions." One of the "divisions" of the "Benedictine Order" is the "Olivetians" symbolized by an "Olive Branch" and pictured here is the "Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore" the "Abbey In The Clouds', the "mother house" of the "Olivetians":

The Abezia di Monte Oiveto Maggiorre

The interesting thing about Pope Benedict XVI choosing the name of "Pope Benedict" in honor of "St. Benedict Of Nursia" is the fact that before he died, St. Benedict Of Nursia gave an "end-times prophecy" in which he prophesied: "In the last days there will rise to power a Benedictine Pope" (Pope Benedict XVI) "who will lead the Catholic Church in it's fight against evil in the final days just before the beginning of the Apocalypse" (the Tribulation).

I believe that the reign of Pope Benedict XVI was a "sign of the end times", because of the fact that the prophetic designation for him by St. Malachy was "The Glory Of The Olive" because in the Bible the "Olive Symbol" is a sign of the "end-times". I say that because in Matt. 24-25 Jesus gave a detailed "end-times" teaching that, because it was given on the Mt. of Olives has come to be known as the "Olivet Discourse". Also when Jesus ascended into Heaven, He ascended from the Mt. of Olives where two angels also appeared and said: "You men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus who is taken away from you into Heaven will so come back in like manner as you have seen him go into Heaven (Acts 1:9-11) And then we also notice that the Prophet Zechariah prophesied that Jesus "Second Coming" would also take place at the site of the Mt. of Olives (Zech. 14:4). These three things then give "end-times" significance to the "Olive Symbol" and the fact that the prophetic designation for Pope Benedict XVI is "The Glory Of The Olive", shows that he was, therefore, an "end-times Pope" and the fact that St. Benedict of Nursia, from whom Pope Benedict XVI took his Papal name, prophesied that "in the last days, just before the beginning of the Apocalypse" (the "Great Tribulation" — Matt. 24:21)
Lightning strikes the very apex of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.

"that a Benedictine Pope would reign over the Catholic Church" shows that the reign of Pope Benedict XVI (who after his surprise resignation became the first "Emeritus Pope" of the Catholic Church) was "end-times" in significance and it also follows, therefore, that the "Great Tribulation" is likely to occur during the reign of the new present Pope — Pope Francis — which I will discuss and explain in next month's "End-Times Trumpet". This also seemed to be "forewarned" by God by the fact that St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican was struck by lightning, not once but twice, on the night of the same day that Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation/retirement, which I believe was a warning from God that "judgment" was about to fall upon the Vatican when, during the coming "Great Tribulation" the Antichrist will invade and take possession of Rome and will burn and destroy the Vatican and will seek to put an end to the Roman Catholic Church and may even assassinate the Pope, as is also foretold in Rev. 17:16.
