Scandal casts pall on Pope: Faces resignation calls as he opens Holy Week"

This from www.cuttingedge.org
NEWS BRIEF:The Star, March 29, 2010

"VATICAN CITY–Pope Benedict XVI opened Holy Week on Sunday amid one of the most serious crises facing the Catholic Church in decades, with protesters in London demanding he resign and calls in Switzerland for a central registry for pedophile.'

As usual, Pope Benedict did not mention the widening scandal during his Palm Sunday homily.

"This year, the most solemn week on the Church's liturgical calendar has been stained by a clerical abuse scandal that has spread across Europe to the Pope's native Germany. In London on Sunday, a few dozen people gathered outside Westminster Cathedral to demand the Pope resign. Demonstrators carried placards saying 'Pope? Nope!' and 'Don't Turn a Blind Eye'."

The Pope himself has been implicated in the coverup of priests who have sexually abused children.

"The Vatican has been on the defensive amid questions about the Pope's handling of sex abuse cases both when he was archbishop of Munich and when he headed the Vatican's doctrinal office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was Munich archbishop when a priest was allowed to resume pastoral work with children even while receiving therapy for pedophilia. He was later convicted of abusing minors. In addition, a case has come to light in which Ratzinger's deputy told Wisconsin bishops to quash a church trial for a priest alleged to have abused up to 200 deaf boys."

Why is the Roman Catholic Church so beset by sexual scandals by its priests? Further, why are these rogue priests then coddled by their superiors, who most often refuse to call the police -- as the law requires -- but simply transfer them to a far-away church where they can resume their molestation on a fresh new group of young boys.

How can this be? In 2002, Cutting Edge created a masterful DVD, pictured above, entitled, "Catholicism: White Sepulcher Christianity". We answer this question once and for all. This material in this DVD is one of the finest we have ever carried in our bookstore.

Now, let us return to our original premise. Quoting pertinent excerpts from a Cutting Edge archived article, NEWS2401, entitled, "The Next Pope Could Very Well Be The False Prophet of Revelation 13".

Pope Benedict XVI is the 11th Pope since the prophecy of St. Malachy, an Irish bishop who at his death in 1148 A.D. was discovered to have left behind a prophetic list of all future popes beginning with Pope Celestine II, whose papacy began in 1143 A.D. 'While in Rome in 1139, Saint Malachy is said to have gone into a trance and received a vision in which he foresaw all the popes from the death of Innocent II until the end of time. Afterward he wrote a few words about each pope and gave the manuscript to Pope Innocent II, who is said to have deposited it in Vatican Archives, where it lay forgotten until it was discovered in 1590 and published. At the time, some questioned its authenticity and it has been the subject of debate ever since. The manuscript contains 112 prophecies, which scholars have matched with each of the 110 popes and anti-popes since Innocent II ..."

"Malachy included a single line in Latin identifying a characteristic of each pope. Historians say Malachy's prediction – wherein he listed just 112 popes – has been amazingly accurate."

112. The last pope! "Petrus Romanus"

This designation seems to imply that the final pope -- the actual False Prophet -- might come from Rome, from the line of the Romans. This possibility makes Biblical sense, for Antichrist himself is prophesied from coming out of a "Revived Roman Empire" (Daniel 9:26b).

Therefore, it is consistent to think that the last pope might be a Roman, an Italian, with roots back to Imperial Rome. In fact, since the Roman Catholic Church has always falsely claimed that the Apostle Peter was their first pope, it seems logical that they would plan on their last pope being "Petrus Romanus"! Listen to the explanation given in our first featured article, above:

"Wrote St. Malachy of the last pope: '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 the people. The End'." [Ibid.]

Does this pagan Catholic prophecy sound like this genuine prophetic Scripture?

"And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will be the very ones to hate the harlot (the idolatrous woman); they will make her cheerless (bereaved, desolate), and they will strip her and eat up her flesh and utterly consume her with fire ... the woman that you saw is herself the great city which dominates and controls the rulers and the leaders of the earth." [Revelation 17:16, 18; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

We will watch this story line with great interest. World events are occurring which give great credence to our belief that the End of the Age is upon us and the start of the final global war will begin, a conflagration which will place Antichrist and his False Religious Prophet on the world scene. If this World War III is very close to starting, then we should expect corollary events to occur. One of these corollary events would be the ascension to the Throne of Peter of the final Pope, the man who will become the False Prophet of Revelation -- the Beast who had two horns like a lamb but who would roar like a lion! (Revelation 13:11).

This wording means that this Second Beast will pretend to be a Christian and will be accepted as such, but he will be full of Satan's power and will "roar like a lion" on Antichrist's behalf. This next Pope will be the Final Pope -- #112 -- according to St. Malachy's occult prophecy. Since we know that God allows the demonic host a limited amount of prophetic foreknowledge, it is possible that this prophecy will prove accurate to the final detail.

  2. Fred, very interesting blog. I could spend hours here.

    I don't mean to sound like a know-it-all, but I can tell you who that second beast is. The first beast of Revelation 13, as protestants always believed but no more, is the papacy.

    The second beast of Revelation 13 is none other than the United States of America. This beast had two-lamblike horns, a fitting representation of America's original principals, but this beast morphs into a tyranny, becoming an image to the first beast, and enforcing it's mark.

    This is now occurring as the United State because protestants have apostatized in this ecumenical reuinification with the papacy - the U.S. is more and more telling the world to worship and respect the first beast, the papacy.

    In the EU right now, the papacy is pushing to enshrine the enforcement of Sunday as a day of rest into European law. Sunday is not the Bible sabbath - Sunday is the PAPAL sabbath, and she boasts of this change as THE MARK of her ecclesiastical authority.

    The United States is going to enforce Sunday observance, thus enforcing the mark of the beast. This will result in national ruin, just before Christ returns.

    Maybe this seem preposterous, but I know whereof I speak. It is the truth and very solidly based. Thank you for listening, Fred. All the best to you!

  3. Thanks John for your nice comments, and input. If you'll check out the links to the left, you'll see I have a post on the Anti-Christ, the False Prophet , and the Mark of the Beast. I think they're pretty good, but I too refuse to believe I know everything. I've been wrong before, and probably will be again, BUT...I currently believe (and have for some time) that the false prophet is the 2nd beast, and is the Pope. As Jesus is Father Son and Spirit all in one physical being (Col.2:8-9), it may be that the Anti-Christ and false prophet may both be the pope as a man, and as the head of an institution. I definitely believe Satan is the driving force behind the Vatican. Again, I am still watching, and watching has changed my mind in the past. We will all soon know the truth!

  4. Also, I love the zeal, dedication to study and openness of the 7th Day Adventists to discuss the scriptures, but I don't agree with the 7th day view...and here is were I get my understanding...

    Gal.4: 9. But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?
    10. You observe days and months and seasons and years.
    11. I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.
    22. For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman.
    23. But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise,
    24. which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar
    25. for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children
    26. but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.
    27. For it is written: "Rejoice, O barren, you who do not bear! Break forth and shout, you who do not travail! for the desolate has many more children than she who has a husband.''
    28. Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.
    29. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
    30. Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? "Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.''
    31. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.

    Sabbath observance is part of the law we were set free from. I don't believe that to be the Mark of the Beast. Also, I believe there are much greater issues at stake. Acts 2:38 is the only plan of salvation offered in the New Testament. I advocate true repentance, total immersion baptism in Jesus name ( the name of the Father, son, and Holy Spirit- Matt.28:19)and the infilling of the Holy Ghost. Scripturally, it is apparent that all who received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, spoke with unknown tongues when it happened. I wasn't a believer in tongues, until I found myself talking in a language I didn't know, and couldn't understand. Much study ensued, and now I understand. This is the "born again" experience. The Gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor.15:1-4) Our obedience to that is our death to self rule/lordship (repentance) burial (we are buried with Christ in baptism-Col.2:12)and resurrection (Rom.8:11)- Go to my power point presentations in the links to the left- watch all of them. Especially "Baptism Water and Spirit" and Roman Road to Salvation, put into Perspective"
