New Papa in Rome

Ok, We are protestant and it is all about the pretrib rapture but let's give a big welcome to Pope Francis.  Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Buenos Aires Argentina.  So what does this mean and is it prophetic? 

As you know I have been following the Prophecy of the Popes by St Malarchy supposedly from the 1100's brought to light in the 1500s.  Every Pope since that time has seemed to follow the prophecy.  On first blush, this man does not follow the pattern.  The prophecy says that he will be Peter the Roman who leads his flock through great tribulation and the dreadful judge will judge his people then the end will come.

Does he fit Peter the Roman.  Well let's look.  He is from Argentina and Peter is nowhere in any of his names, not even the name he took as Pope.  So a lot of people are saying, there you have it prophecy broken throw it out.  We're done.  Are we?

Looking at his biography in Wikipedia it says he was born in Argentina from Italian immigrants.  He was born in on December 17, 1936.  So his parents moved probably after World War I.  Don't have that story yet.  This was a period where a lot of Italians were coming to America.  But did his parents come from Rome? Good question.  We'll have to wait for the Biography to find out. 

The other question is why did Malachy call the final pope Peter the Roman?  Is that the correct way to translate Petrus Romanus?  Should it be instead the Rock of Rome. Is this the man that will stand firm as Rome Burns?  We will have to wait and see on history.  Those who are writing off the prophecy too fast are doing so at their peril.  It could still come true.  If he leaves office and nothing happens then we could be looking at something else.  The last Pope is not numbered so could there be a parenthesis before the last Pope?  This adds to the immanency of the rapture.  We don't know the day or hour.  God has postponed it before.  The man of sin won't be revealed until he that hindereth is taken away. 

Here is another aspect which I saw immediately.  He is a Jesuit.  The Jesuits now have the chaplaincy of the House of Representatives so they are gaining in power.   The Jesuits were the primary instigators of the inquisition.  They were also feared by many in Europe for being assassins.  Of course speculation is that the Jesuits were behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.  Read Charles Chiniquy's 50 Yeas in the Church of Rome for his accusations on that.   Anyway, they have long held their leader in the Vatican as the Black Pope.  Wearing black robes, he has manipulated the White Pope in many of his decisions. 

Much to watch.  The Jury is still out.  We'll get back on this as we learn more.
