The phrase that has everyone sitting up and taking notice is the prediction encapoman’s reign is this: “In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit [i.e., as bishop]. Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations: and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible judge will judge his people. The End.” (SOURCE)Is this the beginning of the “Alta Vendetta?“http://www.federalobserver.com/2013/02/13/petrus-romanus-the-last-pope/
Cardinal John Henry Newman (19th century) Hence, considering that Antichrist would pretend to be the Messiah, it was of old the received notion that he was to be of Jewish race and to observe the Jewish rites (Newman, Cardinal John Henry. Lecture 2. The Religion of Antichrist. Copyright © 2004 by The National Institute for Newman Studies). E. Culligan (1966) The Antichrist will be a Jew by race and religion (Culligan E. The Last World War and the End of Time. The book was blessed by Pope Paul VI, 1966. TAN Books, Rockford (IL), p. 101). Francisco Suarez (died 1617). Suarez (following Saint Jerome, Saint Ambrose, Sulpitius Severus, et al.) says that "Antichrist shall be born of Jewish extraction, and will profess the Jewish religion (Connor p.81). St. Hildegard (12th century). "And in this way the son of perdition will practice his deceitful arts on the elements and show in them the beauty and sweetness and delight desired by those he deceives...He will show them his treasures and riches, and allow them to feast as they will, confirming his teachings by deceitful signs so they think they need not restrain or chaste their bodies in any way. He will command them to observe circumcision and the Jewish laws and customs" (Hildegard of Bingen. Scivias. Paulist Press, Mahwah (NJ), p. 504). Frederick William Faber (died 1863)...Antichrist...Certainly a Jew...begins by affecting respect for the law of Moses...Jerusalem will be the metropolis (Connor p.87).While it is remotely possible that Antichrist will be a Jew, it is completely clear that Jesus was. Notice the following: Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. Jesus answered...(John 4:9-10).
Dionysus of Luxembourg (died 1682) Antichrist will be an iconoclast. Most in the world will adore him. He will teach that the Christian (Catholic) religion is false (Connor, p.85). .
My neighbor was talking about this the other night. The prophesy that that the next Pope will be the last Pope.There's no telling if it means anything. People have been convinced that the end was upon us, for thousands of years.I'll stick with this, and save the conspiracy stuff for politics. Jesus told His disciples, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. ... You do not know when that time will come" (Mark 13:32-33).
