Petrus Romanus is here!
The false prophet is in position and with 76 years we have a clear dimension of how close this tribulation.
It confirms the prophecy of Malachi for the following reasons as Tom Horn States...
This is a rush script from Raiders News Update and we’ll be able to give you more information as we analyze this fantastic fulfillment of prophecy.
1. To start with, remember as we have told audiences repeatedly, the only thing needed to fulfill the Prophecy of the Popes would be a Cardinal of Italian descent and the new Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the son of Italian parents (Roman).
2. Even more important is that he is the first Jesuit Pope ever (or at least for a very long time, we are researching this) and this is a VERY important aspect of the prediction in our book because we said the name "Petrus Romanus" from the prophecy "implies this pope will reaffirm the authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Church and will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Roman Catholic Church above all other religions and denominations, and its authority over all Christians and all peoples of the world" (Petrus Romanus pgs 437-438). Concerning the Jesuits, their order was organized "to stop Protestantism from spreading and to preserve communion with Rome and the successor of Peter..."
Also note this from Wikipedia:
The 35th General Congregation of the Society of Jesus convened on 5 January 2008 and elected Fr. Adolfo Nicolás as the new Superior General on 19 January 2008. A month after, the Pope (Benedict) received members of the General Congregation and urged them to "to continue on the path of this mission in full fidelity to your original charism" and asked them to reflect so as "to rediscover the fullest meaning of your characteristic 'fourth vow' of obedience to the Successor of Peter." For this, he told them to "adhere totally to the Word of God and to the Magisterium's task of preserving the integral truth and unity of Catholic doctrine." This clear identity, according to the Pope, is important so that "many others may share in your ideals and join you effectively and enthusiastically." The Congregation responded with a formal declaration titled "With New Fervor and Dynamism, the Society of Jesus Responds to the Call of Benedict XVI", whereby they confirmed the Society's fidelity to the Pope.
As a Jesuit, Bergoglio also makes the perfect Pope to fulfill our second book's (Exo-Vaticana) Chardinian Jesuit predictions who have been secretly arguing in favor of a coming an alien savior (MUCH MORE ON THAT WITH THE BOOK RELEASE NEXT WEEK).
Also note this Pope was elected on 3-13-13 at 8:13 (phenomenally occult numerology) Vatican time while specifically on this date (13th) Pan-STARRS (Pan-demonium, all the demons) appeared close to the moon, even silhouetting it according to SPACE.com stargazing columnist Geoff Gaherty, an astronomer with the Starry Night Education night sky software company.

In both Apollyon Rising and Petrus Romanus, a synchronicity between Vatican City and Washington DC was suggested concerning the eschatological beliefs of the Occult Elite pertaining to the return of Apollo, whom they believe will rule a final earthly empire. The capitols in both cities feature an occult architecture between a dome (feminine) and an obelisk (phallic Egyptian symbol of fertility), which seems to suggest a sorcerous birth. Our present investigation has yielded another link between Vatican City and Washington DC—a ufological one. Some readers might be familiar with this old photo seen on various UFO websites:
This photo clearly shows St. Peter’s obelisk with a formation of UFOs in the sky above. However, what most websites do not say is that the photo is not genuine, but rather was created as an illustration by the Italian weekly, L’Europeo, for a story that ran on February 3, 1957, describing an actual sighting that occurred on November 6, 1954, by an Italian government official, Console Alberto Perego. This illustration was created based on Perego’s eyewitness testimony, and it was never represented as an actual photo of the event. However, this was a real event with lots of supporting evidence.
On November 6, 1954, Italian diplomat Dr. Alberto Perego reported seeing a fleet of UFOs over Vatican City to numerous agencies including the Vatican and its astronomical observatory. The National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (or NICAP) was a civilian UFO research group active in the United States from the 1950s to the 1980s. They preserved the following record:
According to Italian diplomat Alberto Perego, at that time working in Rome (he was later attached to the Italian Consulate in Belo Horizonte, Brazil) hundreds of people watched a display of numerous small lights like “white spots, sometimes with a short white trail” which formed and reformed in rough geometrical patterns resembling successively the letters “V” and “X”, then separated into two “serpentine curves” which moved off in different directions.
Perego published his testimony along with diagrams of the formations in books published only in Italian, but, fortunately, also in English for a 1985 issue of Flying Saucer Review (the article is included on the free data DVD provided with the first release of Exo-Vaticana when purchased from SurvivorMall.com). He indicated they flew in formation directly over the Vatican:
At noon, a large formation of twenty machines, the largest formation I had yet seen, appeared from the East, flying towards Ostia, and almost immediately after that I saw a similar night of twenty more coming from the opposite direction, i.e. from Ostia. The two “V”-shaped squadrons converged rapidly until the vertices of the two “V”s met, thus forming a perfect “St. Andrew’s Cross” of forty machines, with ten to each bar. The convergence occurred at an estimated altitude of 7,000 or 8,000 metres over the Trastevere Monte Mario district of Rome, and consequently right over the Vatican City itself.
A few days later, Perego went to the Vatican Observatory, where his sighting was corroborated. “Then I visited the Vatican Observatory at Castel Gandolfo, near Rome. There the Director of the Specola Vaticana, Father Zilwes, informed me that at about 11:00 a.m. on November 12 a Brazilian priest who was on duty in the Observatory had seen some strange objects pass twice over the Observatory, very low at terrific speed, and with no sound.”
Thus, it seems the Vatican astronomers have been aware of the UFO reality for much longer and to a greater extent than formerly admitted. But this is where the story gets even more bizarre, because the article we extracted this testimony from was titled, “‘Great Crosses’ Over Rome and Washington, D.C., in November 1954.”
A US Navy commander based in Washington, DC, Alvin E. Moore, was working for the Scientific Intelligence Department of the CIA at the time. Not a man prone to fanciful imaginings, he reported a remarkably similar phenomenon involving flying saucers on November 9, 1954, over the US Capitol:
When I left the office at 5 p.m. I saw in the western half of the sky—and mainly in the southwestern quadrant—above the long, narrow, horizontal skyribbon—two huge X’s or crosses of pearly white vapor. I thought that in medieval days an observer of such huge crosses in the sky probably would have considered them an omen. They looked, however, more like X’s than crosses having right-angle parts; and I concluded that each of four flying saucer emissions of propulsion materials had crossed another to form the X’s above the horizontal ribbon-like line of gas or vapor.
While we are not exactly sure what to make of all this, the parallel formations are suggestive, given the occult architecture of the two cities. Additionally, Gordon Creighton, the editor of Flying Saucer Review and the reporter who broke the story, has written elsewhere concerning UFOs, “I do believe that the great bulk of these phenomena are what is called satanic.” Might these corresponding cities be the chosen locations where an Alien Savior stages The Revealing?
The Revealing is the name of our friend and colleague L. A. Marzulli’s third novel in the Nephilim series. The cover of that book features a fleet of flying saucers over Jerusalem. What most people don’t know is that the back story to the cover comes from a purportedly ancient text that surfaced in the late 1990s and made a brief splash in the media before disappearing into obscurity, the Angel Scroll. Scholars derived the scroll’s name from one of its verses, which describes a mystical tour of the heavens undertaken by the scroll author in the company of an angel with the obscure Hebrew name Pnimea. The text features accounts of a number of mystical, celestial journeys, in which the author is shown the secrets of the universe. According to the press at the time:
Rumors have circulated for years among scholars in the Holy Land that one of the scrolls—the religious writings of the Essenes found in caves near the Dead Sea between 1947 and 1954—made its way to an antiquities dealer in one of the nearby Arab capitols.
On Monday, the Jerusalem Report magazine reported that in 1974, Benedictine monks bought the parchment filled with 1,000 lines of Hebrew text, spirited it to a monastery on the German-Austrian border and secretly studied it. The monks were sworn to secrecy, but one—identified only by the pseudonym Mateus—broke the vow, bequeathing a transcript and his commentary to a German friend after his death in 1996.
According to all available accounts, the Benedictine monks of the Roman Catholic Church have intentionally kept this scroll from public view. Believing it too important to remain hidden, German Benedictine, Matheus Gunther, reportedly said, “I promised that I would not carry the secret of this missing scroll with me to my grave.” Accordingly, he had arranged for it to be publicized upon his death, which occurred in 1996. Dr. Stephen Pfann, a leading Dead Sea Scrolls scholar, examined the copies of the text and determined that it could be authentic. However, the promised scroll was never delivered for a true investigation. At this point, a hoax seems unlikely, because there was never a profit motive involved. Could it be that the Benedictines were able to stifle the revelation? According to Phann, the text is full of “divine chariot-throne themes with elaborate details of angels ascending heaven’s multiple gates.” Dr. Michael Heiser, a colleague of Phann, was shown a copy of the text and used it as the “Apocalypse Scroll” in his novelThe Façade. The line that inspired the cover of Marzulli’s book involved Jerusalem under attack by “thousands of sun disks.” The Angel Scroll remains an enigma, but could its prediction of a UFO invasion over Jerusalem be the reason for its suppression by the Benedictine order?
Whatever the case may be, readers will come to understand the book cover for Exo-Vaticana is not simply the product of someone’s fanciful imagination. According to reliable witnesses and photographic evidence, something like what we have pictured has occurred more than once. The 1978 tri-papacy tangential to an extraordinary UFO display over the Vatican, along with its return upon John Paul II’s death, more than justifies the artist’s rendering on our book cover.
US President Barack Obama’s first engagement upon landing in Israel on March 20 will be a quick tour of the Iron Dome missile interceptor stationed at Ben Gurion international airport. After a round of handshakes, the officers and men operating the system will explain how it works.
The innovative counter-missile weapon is to be deployed there, not just as a spectacle to honor the US president for his contribution to its development, but out of necessity for his safety. Air Force One might be seen as fair game for the ground-to-ground missiles wielded by Al Qaeda units fighting Assad in Syria and its affiliates in the Sinai Peninsula at the very moment that the US President steps down to the strains of the IDF welcoming band.
In normal circumstances, personal security arrangements for a US presidential foreign visit are kept under close wraps and rarely visible to the public.
This time, DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism sources report, the visit’s planners made an exception. They decided there was no option but to visibly install an Iron Dome battery inside the airport, because the first battery plus a Patriot interceptor stationed for more than two months north and south of Tel Aviv were not sufficient guarantee of security against rocket attack for President Obama’s arrival.
This decision set up two precedents:
1. Air Force One will land on the Ben Gurion airport runway on March 20 enclosed by two defensive rings of US and Israeli missile interceptors in the densest formation ever to guard an American president's arrival in Israel.
2. The Iron Dome battery will stay in place for the three days of Obama’s visits to Israel and Jordan. It will defend Jerusalem’s air space against rocket attack for the duration of his stay.
Still fresh in Israeli memories are Hamas attempts just five months ago to hit the airport and Jerusalem with rockets fired from the Gaza Strip on the orders of the Iranian general Gen. Hassan Shateri aka Hossam Khosh-Nevis. This Iranian officer was killed in January in Syria in unknown circumstances.
No one in US and Israeli security circles is seriously suggesting that Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Syrian ruler Bashar Assad or Hizballah’s Hassan Nasrallah are planning to hit the Israeli airport with rockets on March 20. But neither is any responsible official prepared to expose the president to the slightest risk.
After all, in the more than 120,000 square kilometers of the Damascus-Baghdad-Amman triangle and the 62,000 square kilometers of the Sinai Peninsula, it may be possible to find a jihadist commander willing to act on an order from al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zuwahiri to avenge the death of Osama bin Laden in on May 2 two years ago in Pakistan at the hands of American commandos.
Both groups of security experts appreciate that Zuwahiri has the motive for punishing the US president for ordering his death and, for the first time, the capacity to reach him from al Qaeda-controlled territory with surface missiles loaded with poison chemicals.
Even if their weapon did not touch President Obama, it would be enough for one to explode on an Israeli or Jordanian air field at the time of his arrival for the terrorist organization to chalk up a major strategic feat.
An evangelical ministry that has worked for over 20 years to share the Gospel with Roman Catholics is expressing concern over a ecumenical Tweet that author and megachurch pastor Rick Warren posted early this morning.
At 2:57 a.m., Warren sent out the following call to his over 900,000 followers on Twitter: “Join me today in fasting and prayer for the 115 Cardinals seeking God’s Will in a new leader.”
Since posting the Tweet, which was re-Tweeted over 170 times as of press time and favorited over 80 times, and is being shared widely in a screen shot photograph on Facebook, his comment has received response from both sides of the issue.
“Thanks for your prayers!” wrote Matt Swain, producer of the Son Rise Morning Show on EWTN and author of The Eucharist and the Rosary and Prayer in the Digital Age. “This ain’t like picking Matthias!”
“Mr. Warren, what would the point be?” asked an African follower on Twitter. “Let’s pray for the heretics [to] tone down on their heresy?”
Mike Gendron of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries of Dallas, Texas told Christian News Network that he was particularly disappointed in Warren’s comments.
“I’m very concerned because what this does is it confuses the average evangelical,” he said. “Right now, the Body of Christ doesn’t know whether to evangelize Roman Catholics or to join hands with them to go out and evangelize the world, [and] it’s because of people like Rick Warrren who either don’t know how exclusive the Gospel of grace is, or he’s not aware of the false and fatal Gospel of the Roman Catholic religion.”
Gendron, a former Roman Catholic, stated that Warren’s Tweet is harmful in two ways.
“Rick Warren is doing a disservice to the Roman Catholic Church because he is putting the Gospel off limits to the the Body of Christ for evangelizing Roman Catholics,” he explained. “And so, if they don’t hear the Gospel, they have no hope in ever being saved.”
“Ultimately, it’s a real tragedy,” he said before delving into his second point. “It’s unfortunate because we have a ministry that is dedicated to equipping and encouraging the Body of Christ to reach out to Roman Catholics, and it’s because of people like Rick Warren and other highly visible evangelicals that are signing unity accords with Roman Catholics … that we are getting friendly fire from the evangelical Church.”
WASHINGTON — An unpredictable North Korea, with its nuclear weapons and missile programs, stands as a serious threat to the United States and East Asia nations, the director of National Intelligence warned Tuesday in a sober assessment of worldwide threats.
Testifying before a Senate panel, James R. Clapper delivered the U.S. intelligence community’s overview of global threats posed by terrorism, cyber attacks, weapons of mass destruction, the months-long civil war in Syria and the unsettled situation in post-Arab Spring nations.
The outlook on North Korea comes as the communist regime announced that it was “completely scrapping” the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War and has maintained peace on the peninsula for more than half a century. The Obama administration on Monday slapped new sanctions against North Korea’s primary exchange bank and several senior government officials as it expressed concern about the North’s “bellicose rhetoric.”
“The Intelligence community has long assessed that, in Pyongyang’s view, its nuclear capabilities are intended for deterrence, international prestige and coercive diplomacy. We do not know Pyongyang’s nuclear doctrine or employment concepts,” Clapper told the Senate Intelligence Committee. “Although we assess with low confidence that the North would only attempt to use nuclear weapons against U.S. forces or allies to preserve the Kim regime, we do not know what would constitute, from the North’s perspective, crossing that threshold.”
North Korea, led by its young leader Kim Jong Un, has defied the international community in the last three months, testing an intercontinental ballistic missile and a third nuclear bomb.
Pressed on North Korea, Clapper said he was “very concerned about the actions of the new young leader.” He described the talk emanating from Pyongyang as “very belligerent.”
The world was stunned this week by Pope Benedict XVI's abrupt announcement that he is stepping down from the papacy on February 28.
It has been 600 years since a pope has left office alive. Traditionally, he dies at his post.
Pope Benedict cited failing strength as his reason for resigning. He said that the duties of the highest office in the Roman Catholic church demand strength of mind and body. Apparently he feels that both of these are rapidly declining in him.
Of course, the pope's surprising announcement has enormous repercussions. Not only has it set in motion the top-secret, mysterious, and rigidly ceremonial machinery for choosing his successor, but it may set the stage for a struggle over the future direction of the Roman church.
Further, it may signal the start of the countdown to the end of the Church Age.
Why do I say that? As you know, I believe and preach that there are no prophecies left to be fulfilled before Jesus Christ returns for His bride in the Rapture of the Church. There is nothing to prevent Him from calling us up to be with Him before I finish writing these words, or before you can read them. So why do I say Benedict's resignation may signal a countdown?
Simply because an "extra-Biblical" prediction by a Catholic bishop almost nine centuries ago implied that the next pope will the last before the Roman Catholic church is destroyed. I call this an extra-Biblical prophecy because it is not included in the canon of scripture and I do not believe or suggest that it rises to the level of true Biblical prophecy. But that doesn't make it any less interesting. And it may further serve to impress upon us the lateness of the hour in which we live.
I have discussed these predictions three times in the last four years. This week, I'm going to play for you a short clip from November, 2011, to acquaint you with "The Prophecy of the Popes." Here's how I described it then:
Almost 900 years ago, Pope Innocent II summoned Malachy O'Morgair, the Bishop of Armagh, in what is now Northern Ireland, to come to Rome. While there, this Bishop purportedly experienced a vision in which he saw the popes from that time until the end of the Roman Catholic church. He recorded his impression of each of the remaining 112 popes in a series of cryptic phrases.
Today, Saint Malachy's vision is called "The Prophecy of the Popes." Written in 1139, it was rediscovered in the Vatican's archives in 1590, and first published in 1595.
I do not believe Saint Malachy's predictions rise to the level of the Bible's prophecies in either their detail or accuracy. However, his predictions have been remarkable in their own way and bear relevance to the times in which we live.
You see, Saint Malachy's prophecy seems to predict that the current pope, Benedict XVI, will be the next to last pope of the Roman church. After him will come a pope calledPetrus Romanus, or Peter the Roman. Malachy appears to indicate that he will be the one who cooperates with the Antichrist, then will be turned upon and destroyed by the leader of the confederacy that rises out of the old Roman Empire.
When you consider the fact that Benedict XVI is almost 86 and in declining health, the world might not have to wait very long to learn if Saint Malachy's final prediction comes true.
Obviously, when I wrote that description in 2011, I didn't consider the fact that Benedict might choose to step down rather than die in office. This week's announcement further heightens the intrigue surrounding Saint Malachy's predictions and the uncertainty facing the leadership of the Roman church.
This week, I'm also going to discuss the role I see for the pope in the Bible's prophecies regarding the end-times. I believe he will be a major player in the rise of the Antichrist, a player whom the prophet says will meet a disastrous end.
The question now is: Will the next pope -- who will be chosen in the coming few days -- be that man?
