Pope Benedict XVI announced his retirement on Monday, February, 11, 2103, and already there is great concern over the "Prophecy of the Popes."
The Prophecy of the Popes is a series of 112 short, cryptic phrases in Latin which purport to predict the Roman Catholic popes (along with a few antipopes), beginning with Pope Celestine II.
The current pope, Benedict XVI, would correspond to the penultimate pope described in the prophecy. The list ends with a pope identified as "Peter the Roman," whose pontificate will allegedly bring the destruction of the city of Rome and the beginning of the Apocalypse.
Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman)
In recent times, some interpreters of prophetic literature have drawn attention to the prophecies due to their imminent conclusion that Pope Benedict XVI, would correspond to the second last of the papal descriptions, Gloria olivae (the glory of the olive). Saint Benedict and the Benedictine Order, from which Cardianl Joseph Ratzinger took the name "Benedict," uses the "olive" as their symbol. "The Prophecy of the Popes" ends with a prediction of the Apocalypse. The longest and final motto reads:
This may be translated into English as:
Bertone was elevated to the cardinalate in 2003. On 10 May 2008, he was named Cardinal-Bishop of Frascati. Besides his native Italian, Bertone speaks fluent French, Spanish, German and Portuguese. He has some knowledge of English, although he is not fluent, and he can read Polish (and he has a Polish secretary), Latin, Greek and Hebrew.
Beware of Miraculous Signs
"The Three Secrets of Fátima" consist of a series of visions and prophecies allegedly given by an apparition of the "Virgin Mary" to three young Portuguese shepherds, Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto, starting on 13 May 1917. The three children were allegedly visited by a Marian apparition six times between May and October 1917.
By the time of WWI (1914-1918), American leaders and The London Society for the Promotion of Christianity amongst the Jews (aka The Jews' Society) had an obession with the "Millennium" (the future Thousand year reign of Christ on earth). This obsession was based upon a belief that mankind needed to overthrow the Ottoman Empire and restore the Jew-ish people to Palestine in order for the sequence of events to take place for the "Millennium" to happen.
The apparition of Fátima is now known as "Our Lady of Fátima." Allegedly "The Three Secrets of Fátima" contains information about the Apocalypse, apostasy and Satanic infiltration of the Roman Catholic Church. The appearances of the "Virgin Mary" in Africa and in other parts of the world have been taking place more frequently, and I believe that evil doers may be behind these apparitions---using technology to fool innocent and naive "would be believers."
In the light of Pope Benedict XVI and the Vatican’s notice of his resignation, a lightning bolt hit St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican Monday night (2/11/13).
The Beast out of the Earth
"11 Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon. 12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.
13 He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching."
Either lightning striking St. Peter's Basilica was an act of God, or someone is playing out the prophecies of the Holy Bible like a Hollywood Script. Even the Pope's decision to announce his resignation on February 11, 2013, can be written using the occult practice of numerology [2 11 ( 2 ) 0 1 3] to display the number 666 twice without effort...I'll explain numerology later in this writing.
The Controversy of The Three Secrets of Fátima
Cardindal Bertone wrote a book titled, "The Last Secret of Fatima," published first in Italian under a different title in 2007, and then subsequently in English. The book contains a transcribed interview between journalist Giuseppe De Carli and Bertone in which Bertone responds to various criticisms and accusations regarding the content and disclosure of the Third Secret. At one point in the interview, De Carli comments on an unsourced accusation that the Vatican is concealing a one-page text of the "Third Secret," which predicts "the great apostasy" where the Roman Catholic Church will cause Catholics worldwide "to loose faith." Bertone responds as follows:
Regardless, the appearance of the final Antichrist is believed to take place on The Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel (Daniel 7, Matthew 24 and
2 Thessalonians 2). PLEASE READ THESE BIBLE PASSAGES!
The Holy Bible tells that the final Antichrist (a world political ruler) will be ushered in by the false prophet (a world-wide religious leader).
Traitors and Allies
"The Prophecy of the Popes" were first published by Arnold de Wyon (Wion) in 1595. Wyon, said to have been a Benedictine historian aka the "Benedictine Arnold de Wyon," attributes the prophecy to Saint Malachy, the 12th‑century Archbishop of Armagh.
The name Benedictine Arnold de Wyon (Wion) has bothered me since I first wrote this Blog, and the date 1595, seemed to be a cryptogram for the number 666---the "Mark of the Beast." "Wion" could be an English anagram for, "I WON."
Benedict Arnold (1741–1801) was an American general and traitor. During the American Revolution, he was instrumental, with Ethan Allan, in the capture of Fort Ticonderoga but later planned to betray West Point to the British. He fled behind British lines and lived the rest of his life in Britain. His name became synonymous with "traitor." I feel sorry for Pope Benedict XVI, because I think he now realizes the error of his ways and the infiltration of the Roman Catholic Church by P2 (Propaganda Duo---the Italian branch of Freemasonry) and Opus Dei.
"Then Jesus gave the following illustration: "Can one blind person lead another? Won't they both fall into a ditch?"
An article titled, "Pope Benedict XVI’s leaked documents show fractured Vatican full of rivalries," by Jason Horowitz, published on February 16, 2013, stated that Carlo Maria Viganò ambassador to the United States was not happy with his post. Pope Benedict XVI had appointed Archbishop Viganò ambassador to the U.S., a plum post where he would settle into a stately mansion on Massachusetts Avenue, across the street from the vice president’s residence.
THE BUTLER OF POPE BENEDICT XVI:
In October 2012, Paolo Gabriele, the butler to Benedict XVI, stole private papers of the pope, revealing corruption in the Vatican and was arrested.
In October 2012, Paolo Gabriele, the butler to Benedict XVI, stole private papers of the pope, revealing corruption in the Vatican and was arrested.
"This set in motion a blizzard of letters that passed through the office Gabriele shared with the pope’s personal secretary. In one missive, Viganò wrote to Bertone accusing him of getting in the way of the pope’s reform mission; he also charged Bertone with breaking his promise to elevate him to cardinal. Viganò sent a copy of this letter to the pope. In a separate letter to the pontiff, Viganò dropped the Vatican’s “C word”: corruption."
POPE BENEDICT XVI PARDONS HIS BUTLER:
Another news article published on December 22, 2012, titled, "Pope's Christmas pardon for jailed former butler who stole documents alleging corruption in the Vatican" by Ann Edwards, reported that:
"The pope and former butler spent about 15 minutes together before Gabriele was freed and allowed to go home to his family in their Vatican apartment, a Vatican spokesman said."
"Gabriele, 46, was convicted of aggravated theft on October 6 in a case that shone unwelcome publicity on the Vatican and had been serving an 18-month sentence in a jail cell in the city state's police headquarters."
Only after being allowed to resign from his position, Pope Benedict XVI called for his ministry to overcome “individualism” and “rivalry,” saying they were only for those “who have distanced themselves from the faith.”
The Connection to Freemasonry
Marcel François Marie Joseph Lefebvre (29 November 1905 – 25 March 1991) was a French Roman Catholic archbishop.
In 1970, Lefebvre founded the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). In 1988, against the express prohibition of Pope John Paul II, he consecrated four bishops to continue his work with the SSPX. The Holy See immediately declared that he and the other bishops who had participated in the ceremony had incurred excommunication under canon law. Lefebvre responded with a letter claiming that the modernization of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) was a "compromise with the ideas of modern man," originating in a secret agreement between high dignitaries in the RCC and senior Freemasons.
Freemasonry and its Eastern parent, Sufism, is behind the New World Order and has sought to destroy both Catholic and Protestant beliefs in society and Christianity as a whole around the world.
The Grand Orient de France (GODF) is the largest of several Masonic organizations in France and the oldest in Continental Europe. It was formed out of the older Grand Lodge of France in 1773, and briefly absorbed the rump of the older body in 1799, allowing it to date its foundation to 1728 or 1733. It is generally considered to be the mother lodge of traditional Liberal, or Continental Freemasonry. The Grand Orient de France is concerned about a 'silent revolution' of a return of religion in society.
The Grand Orient de France advocates government action against (according to its own terms) an "offensive of cults in Europe." In April 2008, when the legitimacy of the anti-cult ministerial group (MIVILUDES) was questioned, the Grand Master of the Order Jean-Michel Quillardet intervened personally with the President of the French parliament in order to maintain its activity.
The Prieuré de Sion (publicly chartered in 1956) is part of the Grand Orient de France lodge of Freemasonry that is against all religions and promotes the heresy that Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene were married—through Hollywood movies like the “Da Vinci Code” and “Bloodline.” The problem with this heresy is that the Prieuré de Sion claims the resurrection of Christ was a hoax.
I have watched both movies, and was appalled to find that given no carbon dating of the mummified corpse found in France of a possible woman, that the commentator made a blanket statement that he believes that Christ did not die and that Mary Magdalene had children. This is a preposterous hypothesis based upon no correlation to the mummy and Jesus' divinity.
The Holy Bible cannot be disproved although Voltaire and Thomas Paine with his "Age of Reason" tried. So now their followers are using Hollywood sensationalism to fool the masses.
The Prieuré de Sion claims to have high ranking officials inside the Vatican pretending to adhere to Catholic doctrine while serving the Prieuré de Sion. If this is true, it would be consistent with Revelation 17:16-18. A woman depicted in Scripture represents a Global Church (also see Revelation 12 about Israel).
Obviously if the Prieuré de Sion can fool people into thinking that Jesus Christ did not go to prepare a place for us, then they accomplish their NWO Voltaire agenda to create ORDER OUT OF CHAOS---and rule the world through wars, famine, pestilence, reconstruction, politics and high finance.
The Money Connection
Banco Ambrosiano was an Italian bank which collapsed in 1982. At the centre of the bank's failure was its chairman, Roberto Calvi and his membership in the illegal Freemasonry Lodge Propaganda Due (Duo) aka P2/Opus Dei.
The Banco Ambrosiano was founded in Milan in 1896 by Giuseppe Tovini, a Catholic advocate in Valle Camonica, and was named after Saint Ambrose, the fourth century archbishop of the city.
The bank came to be known as the "priests' bank"; one chairman was Franco Ratti, nephew to Pope Pius XI. In the 1960s, the bank began to expand its business, opening a holding company in Luxembourg in 1963 which came to be known as Banco Ambrosiano Holding. This was under the direction of Carlo Canesi, then a senior manager, and from 1965 chairman. In 1967, Canesi brought Roberto Calvi into Ambrosiano. In 1971, Calvi became general manager, and in 1975 he was appointed chairman.
Calvi expanded Ambrosiano's interests further; these included creating a number of off-shore companies in the Bahamas and South America; a controlling interest in the Banca Cattolica del Veneto; and funds for the publishing house Rizzoli to finance the Corriere della Sera newspaper (giving Calvi control behind the scenes for the benefit of his associates in the P2 masonic lodge).
In 1981, police raided the office of Propaganda Due masonic lodge so they could catch the Worshipful Master Licio Gelli, and found further evidence against Roberto Calvi. Calvi was imprisoned, put on trial, and sentenced to four years in jail. However, he was released pending an appeal, and he kept his position at the bank. In 1982, it was discovered that the bank could not account for $1.287 billion (equivalent to $3.1 billion in present day terms). Calvi fled the country on a false passport, and Rosone arranged for the Bank of Italy to take over. Calvi's personal secretary, Graziella Corrocher, left a note denouncing Calvi before jumping from her office window to her death. Calvi himself was found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London on June 18.
Journalist David Yallop believes that Calvi, with the assistance of P2, may have been responsible for the death of Albino Luciani who, as Pope John Paul I, was planning a reform of Vatican finances.
Vatican Bank was Banco Ambrosiano's main shareholder, and the death of Pope John Paul I in 1978 is rumored to be linked to the Ambrosiano scandal, giving one of the subplots of The Godfather Part III.
The Nuovo Banco Ambrosiano was the bank replacing the Banco Ambrosiano after its collapse. In 1989 the bank merged with the Banca Cattolica del Veneto to form the Banco Ambrosiano Veneto. In 1998 the latter bank formed the Banca Intesa together with the Cassa di Risparmio delle Provincie Lombarde (Cariplo).
The Institute for Works of Religion (Italian: Istituto per le Opere di Religione – IOR), commonly known as the Vatican Bank, is a privately held institute located inside Vatican City run by a CEO who reports directly to a committee of cardinals, and ultimately to the Pope or the Camerlengo, Secretary of State Bertone (during a vacant seated pope).
Cardinal Bertone will control Vatican Bank temporarily after February 28, 2013, until the election of the next pope. Since its assets are not considered property of the Holy See, it is not overseen by the Vatican committee for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See, and it is listed in the annual directory (Annuario Pontificio) not under "Holy See" or "Vatican City State," but rather as a religious and cultural institute, and placed with charitable foundations. The bank's most recent President, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, was removed from his post by the board of directors in May 2012, for dereliction of duty.
The Archdiocese of Washignton D.C. is the metropolitan ”Holy See“ over all Roman Catholics in America. The “Holy See” to the United States is located at 3339 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest, Washington, D.C. The ambassador of the Holy See to the President of the United States, serves as delegate and point-of-contact between the Catholic hierarchy in America and the Pope (as head of the wide-world Catholic church).
Archbishop Carlo M. Viganò is the Vatican U.S. Ambassador.
The dispute between Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Bertone and Ambassador to the President of the United States, Archbishop Carlo M. Viganò, could have been faked to take control of the Vatican Bank---and remove Pope Benedict XVI---so the Roman Catholic Church can get deeper involved with the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve and its European Union and International banking partners (who instigate international conflicts and world wars).
Vatican Bank was also accused of funneling covert United States funds to Solidarity and the Contras through Banco Ambrosiano. But whoever the next "puppet pope" will be, Vatican Bank will always be at the center of the papacy and Vatican's corruption scandals.

There is a buzz in the news that Cardinal Sean O’Malley, an American, may be a contender to become the next pope.
Sean Patrick O'Malley (born June 29, 1944) will be able to participate in any future papal conclaves held as the result of a sede vacante (vacant seat of the pope) as long as such conclaves take place prior to his 80th birthday on June 29, 2024. O'Malley, as of September 2011, is the only Capuchin member of the College of Cardinals. READ: "An American: Cardinal O'Malley a Contender for Next Pope," ON THIS BLOG.
The New World Order Attack
on World Religions
on World Religions
Recently, I read that the most recognized Zen-Buddhist teacher is accused of sexual assault. Since arriving in Los Angeles from Japan in 1962, the Buddhist teacher Joshu Sasaki, who is 105 years old, has taught thousands of Americans at his two Zen centers in the area and one in New Mexico. He has influenced thousands more enlightenment seekers through a chain of some 30 affiliated Zen centers from the Puget Sound to Princeton to Berlin. And he is known as a Buddhist teacher of Leonard Cohen, the poet and songwriter. Nikki Stubbs, who studied at a Zen center with Joshu Sasaki from 2003 to 2006, said he would touch her inappropriately.
Mr. Sasaki has also, according to an investigation by an independent council of Buddhist leaders, released in January, groped and sexually harassed female students for decades, taking advantage of their loyalty to a famously charismatic roshi, or master.
The allegations against Mr. Sasaki have upset Zen Buddhists across the country, who are part of a close-knit world in which many participants seem to know, or at least know of, the principal teachers.
If Buddhists loose faith, it will be a delight to the NWO.
Regarding the Final Antichrist, the Bible prophesies that the Day of the Lord will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
Regardless, we need to trust that God is in control, and this Blog can sometimes be TMI for me. I can only thank God that I found freedom and a personal relationship with Christ apart from religion and its political corruption.
Given the fact that the Roman Catholic Church has gotten itself into too many scandals in the last century, and the fact that the Anglican Communion (Church of England and its colony churches---including the Episcopal Church in America) is headed by the Queen of England or its present monarch, I think we need to get back to basics of Jesus Christ as the ONLY Head of His wide-world Christian church (body of believers).
In 2007, representatives of the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church jointly stated that both East and West accept the fact of the Bishop of Rome's (Pope's) primacy (as the Successor of Peter) at the universal level, but that differences of understanding exist about how the primacy is to be exercised and about its scriptural and theological foundations.
The Islamic religion has a Supreme Religious leader. I have already outlined the problems between Judaism and Hasidism in the Post, "Jew-ish World Religions."
I do not know whether or not Cardinal Bertone will become the 112th Pope known as "Peter the Roman," or who will be the final Antichrist. Regardless, the Holy Bible teaches to only worship God and NOT to take the "Mark of the Beast" (the number 666) in any form.
I also do not know if Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone is a Freemason inside the Vatican and a "Benedict Arnold" to Pope Benedict XVI and the world’s 1.2 Billion Catholics, but it seems to be the case.
However, I do know that Christians need to get back to the simplicity of trusting ONLY Jesus Christ.
13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
I believe Archbishop Lefebvre (29 November 1905 – 25 March 1991), who claimed that the modernization of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) is a "compromise with the ideas of modern man," originating in a secret agreement between high dignitaries in the RCC and senior Freemasons.
The Apostle Paul said
"3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough."
THE WORLD IS BEING CONDITIONED

APPARITIONS OF MARY AND FALSE SIGNS OF
JESUS' SECOND COMING
23 “Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. 25 See, I have warned you about this ahead of time.'
26 “So if someone tells you, ‘Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,’ don’t bother to go and look. Or, ‘Look, he is hiding here,’ don’t believe it! 27 For as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west, so it will be when the Son of Man[a] comes. 28 Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near.[b]
Matthew 24:27 “Son of Man” is a title Jesus used for himself.
Matthew 24:28 Greek Wherever the carcass is, the vultures gather.."
I believe the devil and his cohorts are hoping that all people loose faith in their religion. But what they do not realize is that God is still in control, and that people of faith are watched over by a loving and caring God who provides for His people. I am prejudiced by faith and history to trust Jesus Christ, and I believe He died for the salvation of ALL mankind.
If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please repent and accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer:
Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!"
If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect or religious denomination).
Please get into a Bible-based church where the Word of God is taught unadulterated and reject the Tradition(s) of men. Pray, meditate upon God's Word and trust Jesus that He will guide you with His Spirit.
God wants us to worship and praise Him in the fellowship of other believers. We are made to worship God and have a purpose. Get active in your church ministry and take part in the wide world mission to show love and compassion, and share your faith with others.
"And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."
The return of Jesus Christ could take place 500 years from now, or tomorrow, but in the interim, we must learn to live and practice our faith in God with pure devotion to His Word. I pray that this Blog and that my proselytizing work helps people to get a simple relationship with Christ---that they can teach to their children and future generations to come.
This Blog exposes what I call "THE MATRIX," the twisted dot-to-dot connection between political and religious propaganda and the organizations behind the global schemes of the New World Order.
"Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they marveled at him" (Mark 12:17 ESV)."
As for me, I am glad that I finally decided to take heed of the following Scripture ahead of time. Please do not wait till it is too late.
4 Then I heard another voice calling from heaven,
“Come away from her, my people.
Do not take part in her sins,
or you will be punished with her.
You too can separate your life from this world and live free---rendering to pay Caesar's taxes and obeying local laws. But please, "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them
(1 John 2:15). "For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world" (1 John 2:16). This includes the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council of Foreign Relations, EU, Freemasons, International Bankers and false religions.
You might be confused and feel dismayed at the demise of the Roman Catholic Church and the corruption of other world religions, but trust that God loves you and that He sent His Son to deliver us from this evil world.
"4 Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live..”
Once you know you have found the simplicity of a sole relationship with Jesus Christ, you may be inspired to teach others (Matthew 28:19-20 KJV).
Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 NLT).

"The Prophecy of the Popes"
"The Prophecy of the Popes"
In the year 1128, Saint Bernard assisted at the "Council of Troyes", at which he traced the outlines of the Rule of the Knights Templar.
Saint Malachy (1094 – 2 November 1148) was an Irish saint and Archbishop of Armagh. In 1130, Pope Honorius II lay dying and the cardinals decided that they would entrust the election to a commission of eight men, led by papal chancellor Haimeric, who had his candidate Cardinal Gregory Papareschi hastily elected as Pope Innocent II. He was consecrated on February 14, the day after Honorius' death. On the same day, the other cardinals announced that Innocent had not been canonically elected and chose Cardinal Pietro Pierleoni, a Roman whose family were the enemy of Haimeric's supporters the Frangipani. Anacletus' supporters were a mixture of anyone opposed to Haimeric making him powerful enough to take control of Rome while Innocent was forced to flee North; legally Anacletus was the canonically elected Pope and Innocent was the anti-Pope.
In 1139, St. Bernard assisted at the Second Council of the Lateran, in which the surviving adherents of the schism between the two popes were definitively condemned. About the same time, Saint Bernard was visited at Clairvaux, France by Saint Malachy. However, north of the Alps, Innocent II gained the crucial support of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Peter the Venerable, and other prominent reformers who personally helped him to gain recognition from European rulers such as Emperor Lothar III, leaving Anacletus with few patrons. Anacletus had been a relatively acceptable candidate for the Papacy, being well-respected, so rumors centering on his descent from a Jewish convert were spread to blacken his reputation.
Anacletus II (died January 25, 1138), was born Pietro Pierleoni to the powerful Roman family of the Pierleoni, the son of the Consul Pier Leoni. One of his great-great grandparents, Benedictus, maybe Baruch in Hebrew, was a Jew who converted into Christianity.
St. Malachy set out on a second journey to Rome in 1148, but on arriving at Clairvaux he fell sick, and died in the arms of St Bernard, on November 2 1148 (All Souls Day). St. Malachy's feast is celebrated on 3 November, so it won't clash with All Souls Day.
Following the Christian defeat at the Siege of Edessa, the pope commissioned Saint Bernard to preach the Second Crusade (1145–1149). The last years of Saint Bernard's life were saddened by the failure of the Crusaders, the entire responsibility for which was thrown upon him. Saint Bernard died at age 63, after 40 years spent in the cloister.
Ironically, I was baptized Roman Catholic on All Souls Day 1969, and find it symbolic that this four year MISSION has become the antithesis to false doctrines for the benefit of "All Souls."
I give all credit, honor and glory to God for this mission to reveal Truth, and dedicate my life as an austerer and "Poor Knight for Christ."
The Occult Connection
I wish to preface writing about the occult, by making clear that people who practice satanic rituals do so on dates and at times that seem to represent significant numbers like the number "13," or that calculate to the number "666" or "616."
Numerology is the branch of esoteric mysticism that deals with the occult significance of numbers. Pythagoras (c. 580–500 BC , Greek philosopher; known as Pythagoras of Samos) sought to interpret the entire physical world in terms of numbers and founded their systematic and mystical study. He is best known for the theorem of the right-angled triangle.
THINK ABOUT THIS: "The Prophecy of the Popes" were first published in 1595 [1+5=6; 9 upside down is 6; and 5+1=6] or 666---and [1+5=6]; [5+9+5=19, upside down=61) or 616 or [6+1+6=13]---another number for the "Mark of the Beast" (READ Revelation 13 and Revelation 14 for more information).
In reading a biography of Arnold de Wyon (Wion), I found that the Prophecy of the Popes may have been the work of Nostradamus---according to French researcher and historian Jacques Halbronn.
Jacques Halbronn D.Litt. was born on December 1, 1947 in Paris. He is thoroughly acquainted with astrology and prophetic writings. One of his studies dealt with the history of prophecy in France, and is entitled: "Le texte prophétique en France. Formation et fortune." One of the main features of the nostradamian research project of Halbronn is a severe, critical evaluation of the authenticity of publications that are attributed to Nostradamus.
Michel de Nostredame (14 or 21 December 1503 – 2 July 1566), usually Latinised as Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide. He is best known for his book "Les Propheties (The Prophecies)," the first edition of which appeared in 1555.
Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with much of the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events.
After a second visit to Italy, Nostradame began to move away from medicine and toward the occult. Following popular trends, he wrote an almanac for 1550, for the first time Latinizing his name from Nostredame to Nostradamus. He was so encouraged by the almanac's success that he decided to write one or more annually. Taken together, they are known to have contained at least 6,338 prophecies, as well as at least eleven annual calendars, all of them starting on 1 January and not, as is sometimes supposed, in March. As a result, Nobility and other prominent persons from far away soon started asking for horoscopes and "psychic" advice from him.
Nostradamus said that the Prophéties were written as a collection of prophetic quatrains with no chronological order, which has inspired his followers to arrange them. The book, written in rhymed four-line verses (quatrains) in an obscure mixture of French, Latin, Greek, and Provençal with the time-sequence all jumbled, contained 353 quatrains, which were arranged in 'Centuries' of a 100 verses.
Nostradamus both copied the style of John the Evangelist (the believed author of the Gospel of John, 1st, 2nd and 3rd John and the book of Revelation)---using Orthodox Biblical chronology and used Kabbalah.
Some accounts of Nostradamus's life state that he was afraid of being persecuted for heresy by the Inquisition, but neither prophecy nor astrology fell in this bracket, and he would have been in danger only if he had practiced magic to support them. In fact, his relationship with the Roman Catholic Church was always excellent. His brief imprisonment at Marignane in late 1561 came about purely because he had published his 1562 almanac without the prior permission of a bishop, contrary to a royal decree at that time.
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
