Give the nature of “Saint Paul’s Joke”, and the prophecy of Malachy, there is an interesting problem ahead:
This Pope will die, and the next will be Peter – during whose reign the Church and Rome will be destroyed.
In order to avert destruction the Bishops will need to reject any and all individuals whose name – or history – can be related to Peter. The man cannot select any name related to Peter, or Petrous. He cannot be a Simon, or any name related to that name. He cannot have been called Rocky – or anything like that … nor can he have any affiliation with, or associated to, any place, organization, or Church, whose name can be associated with the biblical Peter.
Basically, the Bishops are in the position of having to intentionally violate a prophecy which has held correct for 1000 years. Given that the prophet, St. Malachy, is a Saint … the church father will need to go against GOD! Or the prophecy will be fulfilled – a period of turbulence and the destruction of Rome.
But can the Church stand against the will of GOD? and still not be destroyed… This is from a web site which lists the popes as dictated by Malachy:
67 Benedict XVI (2005-) 111 Gloria olivae Benedict means "Blessed by God." Prior to his elevation to the Purple, Joseph Alois Ratzinger was Prefect of the Holy Office of the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (previously known as The Roman and Universal Inquisition). As a staunch defender of the Church his immediate personna is one of hard line orthodoxy. He is an opponent of homosexuality, same-sex marriage, euthanasia, and abortion. He would appear well-qualified to be pope of the cloven hoof (Revelation 17:10-11; 13:3-10 and I Thessalonians 5:3).
268 ????????????????????????? In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus transactis ciuitas septicollis diruetur, & Iudex tremêdus iudicabit populum suum. Finis.
(In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.)
According to the prophecy of Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 13 and 17:10-18, the last pontiff will be the Devil-incarnate, and he will break Rome's covenant with the Jewish bankers. It seems Malachy made only 111 predictions so that John Paul II's successor, "Gloria Olivae" should be the final pope. It appears the Benedictines devised pope 112 to dissociate their order from the "Beast".
LOOK THAT THAT:
“the formidable Judge will judge his people.”
Hum … Judgment Day … and “Saint Paul’s Joke” will cause some to laugh and others to cry … but, at least, they can cry over their own stupidity … because the have been warned … that warning is called: “Saint Paul’s Joke”
