Some aspects of my triangulation of prophetic sources may be disturbing, but the thought of the Antichrist running rampant across the planet are even more disturbing.According to Roman Catholic websites, one thousand years ago, a saint named Malachy wrote that the next pope after Benedict XVI will be the last pope and he will be the 666th Pope (by Roman numerals since 1798 when Napoleon killed the Pope). St. Malachy references this final Pope … “will be known as PETER THE ROMAN.” The 112th prophesy states: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End. The last pope may just cut Catholics loose from unity and the papacy, causing total disruption and confusion.” http://www.bibleprobe.com/last10popes.htm
The St. Malachy Prophecy is too detailed for me to list it entirely. There are aspects of this prophecy that make me squeamish. I have relatives and friends that are wonderful godly Roman Catholic Christians. And I love them dearly. As I have stated previously, even a false prophecy can hold some measure of truth in it. What seems logical is that the Antichrist will need to destroy the Roman Catholic Church. It is a powerful Christian Church that will impede his demonic efforts. If the last pope does create disunity by undermining the authority of the papacy, this will aid the Antichrist. I may not particularly like the prophecy, but it has merit.Please read the book “Petrus Romanus” by Tom Horn and Cris Putnam, for more information.
