The Last Countdown

The man of sin is walking the earth today—but you haven’t recognized him yet. He is “that Wicked” and you have known about him, yet you haven’t realized that it is him. In this article, the son of perdition will be revealed. The antichrist will be explained. You already know the name and the face…

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [of Christ] shall not come, except there come a falling away first [the fall of figurative Babylon], and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (2 Thessalonians 2:3)

The apostle warns us not to be deceived. Normally, a person does not know that they are deceived, and when someone or something tells them that they are deceived, the natural tendency is to prefer to cling to the deception. Thus, the apostle is warning of something very dangerous and very subtle.

Let me just be blunt. It is Pope Francis. There’s so much evidence that I literally won’t be able to communicate all of it to you, but we’ll certainly do our best to make it clear in the coming articles.

While you are trying to wrap your mind around the very idea, take note that even Catholics are voicing their concerns about him.

In case your knowledge of Protestantism is a bit rusty, let me give you a crash course in one line, courtesy of Martin Luther. He was on to something when the Mother Church excommunicated him and he said:

…at last I know that the pope is antichrist, and that his throne is that of Satan himself.”—D’Aubigne, b. 6, ch. 9. {GC 141-143}[1]

Those words contain the whole story of the Church’s response to the 95 Theses, which turned out to be the rejection of the Reformation. Ever since that time, Protestants have understood that the papacy is the antichrist system. But that is not what I am here to say; you should already know that.

The papacy has ever since been the antichrist of prophecy in general, but today we are looking for the man of sin himself. The popes through the ages have been sitting upon the throne of Satan, but only as his representative. Today we are talking about something much more sinister. We are talking about Satan himself, “that Wicked,” appearing as an angel of light and impersonating Jesus Christ.

In this age antichrist will appear as the true Christ....Satan clothed as an angel of light. Men will be deceived and will exalt him to the place of God, and deify him.... {LDE 168.2}[2]

What is happening today is more acute than anything in Luther’s day! We are living at the end. As a general rule, prophecy was given especially for the end of the world.[3] The present falling away is explained in the series of articles entitled Babylon Is Fallen!, which says, to put it in a nutshell, that the present falling away was the complete fall of organized Protestantism which happened recently, thanks in part to the late Tony Palmer. Now that the falling away has come, it is time for the man of sin (also called the son of perdition) to be revealed for who he really is.

By also calling him the son of perdition, we are reminded of the only other man given that name in Scripture:

While I [Jesus] was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. (John 17:12)

Interestingly, this is the very name that Jesus used in reference to Judas, and those are the only two occurrences of it in the Bible. At this point, we need to step away from our 21st-century stereotype of what Judas was like. We already know the whole story of his betrayal, so we naturally picture him as the “bad guy.” However, at the time Jesus called him the son of perdition, he was still looked upon with respect by others as one of the twelve nearest disciples of Jesus, and an important one (considering that he managed the finances for the small band). The point I want to make here is that appearances can deceive. Judas might have looked good on the outside, but he was a lost man on the inside. This theme will come back again and again, which is why Paul warns us regarding the man of sin, the ultimate son of perdition, saying “let no man deceive you by any means.”

Since the appearance of the man of sin is connected to the fall of Babylon, we should naturally understand what the biblical account of Babylon has to teach us about its leader. If we want to identify the leader of the Babylonian system of today, then we need to understand what God wanted to tell us by calling that system Babylon. Ancient Babylon was in ruins by the time John the Revelator was alive, so God was definitely pointing to the past as an example for the future—which is today. Let’s start from the very beginning to see what that ancient city has to teach us.

Nimrod’s Babel

Tower of BabelWe read from the biblical account:

The sons of Ham: Cush.... Cush became the father of Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.” The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, and Accad, all of them in the land of Shinar. From that land he went into Assyria, and built Nin′eveh, Reho′both-Ir, Calah, and Resen between Nin′eveh and Calah; that is the great city. (from Genesis 10:6-12 RSV)

Nimrod, the mighty man who founded Babylon, was the grandson of Ham, who was Noah’s bad son. The Bible translators rendered the verse as saying he was a mighty hunter before the Lord, but it was meant in the sense of against the Lord:

9. Before the Lord. The LXX renders this phrase “against the Lord.” Although the hunter Nimrod acted in defiance of God, his mighty deeds made him famous among his contemporaries, and in future generations as well. Babylonian legends about Gilgamesh, who appears frequently on Babylonian reliefs and cylinder seals and in literary documents, may possibly refer to Nimrod. Gilgamesh is usually shown killing lions or other wild beasts with his bare hands. The fact that Nimrod was a Hamite may be the reason why the Babylonians, descendants of Shem, credited his famous deeds to one of their own hunters and purposely forgot his name.[4]

Already we see that Nimrod and Pope Francis have something in common: fame. Even though his greatness made him famous, the builder of Babylon was a bad grandson of a bad man, as far as the Bible records their deeds. In contrast, the people themselves—the Babylonians—were the descendants of Shem, one of Noah’s good sons.

There is an important point to be made here. As we identify the biggest culprit in Babylon’s fall—whether we speak of modern figurative Babylon or the ancient city—we must remember that the population of individuals who have grown up into the deceptive system are not especially guilty for that. These histories were given for our instruction in righteousness,[5] and God is no respecter of persons.[6] No one will be condemned because of being born into deception since that was not their choice. What a person is held accountable for is whether they sought to know the truth, and whether they acted upon the truth they knew.

In plain words, if you belong to any of the churches that are united under Pope Francis, by all means, please keep reading and let the Holy Spirit convince you of the truth. There is no condemnation for having been deceived. The condemnation is when you have the opportunity to know the truth (as you now have) and then you refuse it.

The descendants of Shem ended up deceived by Nimrod, but there was still a chance for them to escape. As an example, one such descendent of Shem did seek the one true God, and God asked him to leave the kingdoms and high society established and developed by Nimrod. His name was Abram, later changed to Abraham.

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: (Genesis 12:1)

And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there. (Genesis 11:31)

The city of Ur was near the city of Erech, which Nimrod built in the beginning of his kingdom (see quote from Genesis 10:6-12 above), and Ur had become a leading cultural center by the time of Abraham, or earlier no doubt.[7] The education of the Chaldees extended all the way to the time of Daniel and the fall of Babylon.[8] I would like to ask you, dear reader, to seek the truth like Abram as you read this article. I ask you if you would be willing to leave the comfort of long-held but erroneous beliefs like he was. Would you be able to separate from social circles and from the familiar education that you have thus far been surrounded with, if that is what it will take to follow God’s call? Abram did that, and he received a new name,[9] Abraham. Let us pray together for God to lead us according to his example.

Dear Father in heaven, please give us the Holy Spirit to guide us as we study the history and fall of the ancient city of Babylon. You referred to this great city in Your final call to humanity to come out of Babylon,[10] and we ask for You to impart to us an understanding of what it means for us today. We ask for the strength we will need to follow the call, which we want to do, not for fear of the things to come, but because we love You supremely, and because we want to bring out from Babylon with us as many others as we can. We thank you in advance for answering our prayer, knowing that because we ask in the name of Jesus/Alnitak, we shall receive it.[11] Amen.

Transformed into an Angel of Light

As we already saw, one of the first issues we face regarding Nimrod is the fact that he was perceived as a great man—a hero—yet he was evil. There was a confusion of identity. (Doesn’t that already sound like Pope Francis?) The descendants of Shem even willingly adopted him into their lineage because of his great fame as we read in the Bible Commentary quote above, and by so doing, they lost their focus. They looked to Nimrod instead of to the true God. In this sense, Nimrod is a type for the false Christ that the Bible prophesied would come:

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14)

Jesus said of the last days that even the very elect would be seduced and deceived by false Christs, if it were possible. That is a very strong warning, coming from the lips of the Savior Himself. Consider it carefully:

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:24)

For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. (Mark 13:22)

Although Jesus refers to false Christs and false prophets in the plural form, the deception associated with it is essentially the great deception of Satan himself, as mentioned in 2 Corinthians 11:14 (above).

Jesus’ words are packed with power. He implies many things. First of all, He implies that it is possible to be seduced and deceived (except for the elect, which we will talk about shortly). This should immediately put a person on alert, because nobody should want to be deceived. This goes contrary to the modern concept of relative truth, or the plurality of truth, which teaches that there is no such thing as a wrong belief, and that a person’s beliefs constitute their “truth” and that their beliefs are “correct” for them. Jesus clearly implies here that it is possible to be deceived, which means that there is an absolute truth, and to believe otherwise is to be in a deceived state. Furthermore, being in this deceived state has the consequence of eternal loss, which is why Jesus warns so strongly of the particular deception that He knew would come in the last days.

Jesus’ statement also says that there is an elect, and even a very elect. The elect refers to the select, chosen ones. Crops yield their fruit in varying degrees of quality. The select, chosen fruits are the best ones. When you go to the market to buy produce, you examine the produce in order to select, or choose, the best quality available. In the final harvest of souls, there is a special group of only the best quality—whom Jesus examines, or tests, and then selects, or chooses based on their suitability. This truth is a thorn in the side of every inferior religion, which is why there is present unification of the religions, and a corresponding effort to prevent anyone from asserting that one particular system of faith is superior or inferior to another. This phase of selecting also implies the investigative judgment, which is a period during which Jesus examines those who profess to be His fruits, prior to the Executive Judgment when each soul will receive his just reward.

Now it really starts to get interesting. By making reference to the elect, who would be deceived if it were possible, Jesus implies that all others besides the elect will be deceived, guaranteed (and even the elect are at risk). That should cause a person to be seriously uncomfortable! Are you certain that you are among the elect? Could you be in a deceived state without knowing it? How can you know for sure that you are not deceived?

Jesus does not speak idle words. When He gives a warning, and a person does not pay attention to the warning, he will suffer serious consequences. That is how it was with the sign to flee the city of Jerusalem before its destruction in AD 70—those who ignored the sign did not escape. Likewise, understanding this warning about the false Christ is a matter of eternal life and death.

Jesus’ words carry another key implication. By mentioning that the elect would be deceived “if it were possible,” Jesus is saying that there is a certain definite reason why it is not possible to deceive the elect. That in turn implies that the elect can know the reason, and thus know that they are among the elect, and know that they are not deceived.

The reason why it is not possible to deceive the elect is that they have a knowledge of the time. They are able to identify the false Christ by a method other than appearance. When Jesus came the first time, the wise men knew about it based on the time prophecies of Daniel, and they were able to identify the Lord of lords in His human flesh as an infant because they knew the time to expect Him. The same gift of God—time prophecy—allows us to identify Pope Francis as the false Christ, regardless of how he presents himself. The Jews did not recognize Jesus because they did not know the time of His coming, and He presented Himself in a manner they weren’t expecting—in humility. Similarly, those today who do not know the time of the coming of the true Christ will not recognize the false Christ, because he appears to be a good, humble person, which they don’t expect.

Many well-meaning Christians who are trying to study prophecy mistake an obviously-evil power for the antichrist. For example, President Obama is often identified as the antichrist because of a variety of reasons. However, such an idea completely misses the point of 2 Corinthians 11:14 (above), because the ultimate evil—Satan himself—is prophesied to appear as an angel of light, or a messenger of good, or simply “a good person.” Painting Obama as the devil doesn’t work, although he does play an important support role, which you can read about in the Moor of Freising.

The real antichrist undergoes a transformation process into something beautiful, like how Nimrod’s fame overpowered the fact that he was evil, to transform him into a hero of even Noah’s “good” descendants. You can see this in how the papacy has been transformed over the years, and even just recently as the Vatileaks scandal has given way to the reforms of the Roman Curia in the public mind. That is all part of the show.

The Mighty Hunter and the “Heavenly Shepherd”

Nimrod’s reputation as a mighty hunter calls to mind another great hunter of Greek mythology: Orion. However, the Greeks (and the name Orion) came much, much later than Nimrod. Nevertheless, the constellation itself was the same in Nimrod’s night sky, and in that period it was known as the Heavenly Shepherd:

The Babylonian star catalogues of the Late Bronze Age name Orion MULSIPA.ZI.AN.NA,[note 1] “The Heavenly Shepherd” or “True Shepherd of Anu” - Anu being the chief god of the heavenly realms.[5][12]

Note that this is not talking about the Good Shepherd we know as Jesus Christ, but a different shepherd who was the son of the god Anu. Anu comes down to us in a form that reveals Satan’s intentions to usurp the authority of God the Father:

In Sumerian mythology, Anu (also An; from Sumerian An, “sky, heaven”) was a sky-god, the god of heaven, lord of constellations, king of gods, spirits and demons, and dwelt in the highest heavenly regions. It was believed that he had the power to judge those who had committed crimes, and that he had created the stars as soldiers to destroy the wicked. His attribute was the royal tiara. His attendant and minister of state was the god Ilabrat.[13]

Do you recognize the royal tiara, like the one associated with the papal office? Do you recognize the shepherd figure, which Pope Francis wears on his cross, and which is mentioned in the Prophecy of the Popes,[14] where the last pope (the Roman Peter, which is Pope Francis) is described as pasturing his sheep?

Satan is a hunter, like Nimrod, destroying souls in deception, while he projects himself as a shepherd. Do you see that if Nimrod is a type for Satan, and Pope Francis fulfills the type of Nimrod, then Pope Francis is Satan!?

The city of Babylon was deliberately modeled after heaven, and that is why it got the special name, Babilu:

Babel. Nimrod’s first kingdom was Babylon. Having the idea that their city was the earthly reflection of the heavenly dwelling place of their god, the Babylonians gave it the name Bab–ilu, “the gate of god” (see on ch. 11:9). Babylonian legends equate the founding of the city with the creation of the world. No doubt with this in mind Sargon, an early Semitic king of Mesopotamia, took sacred soil from Babylon for the founding of another city modeled after it. Even in the later period of Assyrian supremacy Babylon did not lose its significance as the center of Mesopotamian culture. Its greatest fame and glory, however, came in the time of Nebuchadnezzar, who made of it the world’s first metropolis…[15]

Compare “the gate of god” with what Jacob said when he realized that Orion was the door to heaven, as I explained in the Voice of God article:

And Jacob awaked out of his sleep [having seen the ladder to heaven], and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place [referring to the constellation of Orion, which was afterward named “Jacob” because of this dream]; and I knew it not. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. (Genesis 28:16-17)

Satan is the greatest copycat of all time, and he’s been practicing it since Babel. We learn from this that Babylon was designed to be a fake earthly substitute for the true hope of reaching heaven. Rather than seeking the way to the true God, the city of Babylon claimed to be the way. Nimrod was the earthly figure for the false “heavenly shepherd” god of that day. He built cities, thus protecting and providing for the people—like a shepherd—and they enjoyed his protection. That is another way in which Nimrod was a type of the false Christ. Pope Francis is likewise building his cities in the sense of bringing the churches together and uniting them behind the wall of human rights, thus “protecting” them from fundamentalist “outlaws.” Do you see that if Nimrod is a type of the false Christ, and Pope Francis fulfills the type of Nimrod, then Pope Francis is the false Christ!?

Understanding that Satan is transformed into an angel of light is a critical part of recognizing his deceptive appearance. When we identify the false Christ, we are not identifying an Obama with horns, but a shepherd—a pastor—a pope! The call to come out of Babylon[16] is a call to come away from any number of apparently-good pastoral communities, like those of Nimrod! God’s call to come out of Babylon is a call to depart from the comfort and protection of the earthly systems that are under Satan’s control, like Abram was called to depart from the civil system of Nimrod, and to trust in the invisible God instead. That is not an easy thing to do unless you can see through the good appearance of the leader to the devil he is.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon

It was mentioned above that Babylon’s greatest fame and glory came in the time of Nebuchadnezzar, who made of it the world’s first metropolis. This era in Babylon’s history stands as an example for the end of the world, as did the Tower of Babel, because both were destroyed by judgments of God. It is primarily to this phase in the city’s history that God refers in the book of Revelation. Angels are described proclaiming its fall and calling His people out of it, just like how the city was conquered historically, and how God called the Jews out of it to return to their homeland.

Belshazzar’s FeastThere were three principal kings from the time of Nebuchadnezzar until the fall of Babylon. There was Nebuchadnezzar himself, who was responsible for building up Babylon to the height of its splendor, then there was Nabonidus, and finally Belshazzar, who was reigning and reveling at the time the mysterious hand wrote the fateful words mene, mene, tekel, upharsin on the wall, and the city was taken. The story of these three kings exactly parallels what has happened in recent years...

Like the long list of popes, Babylon had a long list of kings. But there was only one king who was the last king, upon whom the judgment ultimately fell. That last king committed a crime that was worse than all the others before him, and thus he serves as a type for the last pope at the end of time, Pope Francis. As Belshazzar was destroyed with his kingdom, so will Pope Francis be destroyed very soon in the seven last plagues.

And then shall that Wicked [man of sin, now described as the lawless one, Satan] be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: (2 Thessalonians 2:8)

In this verse, the Bible uses clear words to describe the man of sin. He is the epitome of wickedness, and lawlessness: Satan himself. It is very easy to see Belshazzar as a type for the man of sin in this context, because of his wickedness and disregard for the true God, despite the warning of his grandfather’s (Nebuchadnezzar’s) experience. It might not be as easy to see Pope Francis fulfilling the type just yet, but you will see it.

This is where the story begins to get really interesting, because this is where time begins to come into the equation. There is still more evidence to show how Pope Francis follows in the footsteps of wicked Belshazzar, but even though it might still be difficult for you to see, the time element of the story will help make it clear. According to the Bible, he reigned over Babylon long enough to have begun his third year:

In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first. (Daniel 8:1)

The Talmud furthermore records that his reign was just over two years:

The chronology of the three Babylonian kings is given in the Talmud as follows: Nebuchadnezzar reigned forty-five years, Evil-merodach twenty-three, and Belshazzar was monarch of Babylonia for two years, being killed at the beginning of the third year on the fatal night of the fall of Babylon (Meg. 11b).[17]

This three-year reign provides an immediate clue as to who Belshazzar’s antitype is. All we have to do is look for a pope who will reign on the papal seat for three years, and whose reign will be broken in his third year. Seeing that all recent popes except Francis have reigned longer than three years, it must be Francis. This is where a knowledge of time helps us identify him for certain. Pope Francis is in his third year, and because we know from the Clock of God and the Vessel of Time when Jesus Christ will return, and when the plagues will begin, we know that Pope Francis’ reign will be broken by the plagues this autumn, in the middle of his third year. He himself admitted that his reign—and even his life—would be short![18] You remember the headlines: Pope Francis says he expects to live two or three more years, and may retire

Are you beginning to see the power of understanding time prophecy? By knowing when the real Jesus Christ will come, we can back-trace to see when the imposter came. But it gets better—there is so much evidence that I can only scratch the surface in this article.

Belshazzar was made king of Babylon by Nabonidus while he was alive; he did not ascend the throne after the former monarch’s death as is usually the case. That is reflected in modern times by how Pope Benedict’s voluntary resignation opened the papal throne to Pope Francis while Benedict was still alive, which was recognized as a very unusual thing that had never happened before (except for Celestine V who resigned after issuing an edict confirming the pope’s right to do so). Not only the duration of his reign matches, but the circumstances of his ascension do too. Do you see that if Belshazzar is a type for that Wicked who will be destroyed in the plagues, and Pope Francis is a fulfillment of the type of Belshazzar, then Pope Francis is that Wicked!

Belshazzar’s history has even more to say:

Belshazzar was the son of Nabonidus, the last king of Babylon, who frequently left him to govern the empire while he pursued antiquarian and religious interests. After ruling only three years, Nabonidus went to the oasis of Tayma and devoted himself to the worship of the moon god Sin. He made Belshazzar co-regent in 553 BC, leaving him in charge of Babylon's defense.[2] In his 17th year, 539 BC, Nabonidus returned from Tayma, hoping to defend his kingdom from the Persians who were planning to advance on Babylon. He celebrated the New Year's Festival (Akk. Akitu) in Babylon that year. Subsequently, Belshazzar was positioned in the city of Babylon to hold the capital, while Nabonidus marched his troops north to meet Cyrus. On October 10, 539 BC, Nabonidus surrendered and fled from Cyrus. Two days later, the Persian armies captured the city of Babylon.[19]

What the historical record describes is a co-regency, which took place before Belshazzar officially received the throne. This shows that there were two phases of Belshazzar’s reign. In this initial phase, Belshazzar ruled under the authority of Nabonidus. This again reflects the development of Pope Francis. The co-regents of popes are the cardinals; the cardinals are the pope’s subordinate regional co-rulers.

According to those sources, Belshazzar was made co-regent 14 years before the capture of Babylon. Similarly, Pope Francis—then Archbishop Bergoglio—was created a cardinal in February of 2001, which is 14 years before the plagues will come this autumn 2015 to destroy his own Babylon. Again, the fall of Babylon is a type for the end of the world, and the time periods involved point clearly to Pope Francis as the new Belshazzar! That means Pope Francis is “that Wicked” which is none other than Satan himself! When you look at Pope Francis, you are seeing the gestures and hearing the speech of Satan himself! There is no more Jorge Bergoglio. At some point, he volunteered his body and sacrificed his soul.

Now you can begin to see the true significance of the falling of the World Trade Center towers in New York in September of 2001—the first year of Bergoglio’s cardinalate. It was a symbolic event. The two square towers, like the two squares of the “throne” of St. Corbinian's Bear, had to be reoriented, symbolic of the preparation of the papal throne for his papacy (not to mention his own preparation). “The elite consider themselves to be gentlemen, and they think not informing the general public of their plans is unsportsmanlike.”[20] The falling of the Twin Towers was the world-awakening announcement by the ruling elite that the New World Order was coming, and that the throne had to be prepared for the New World’s monarch.

The Eighth of the Seven Kings

In the 17th chapter of the book of Revelation, John is given a clear explanation of “Babylon the Great” and its ultimate king, whom Belshazzar typified. Because the papacy has had many kings, the Bible gives a concise little riddle that allows us to identify the precise one who would be the last.

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. (Revelation 17:10-11)

In this passage, we see the distinction again between seven “normal” kings (the antichrist system), and an eighth one, who is that Wicked—the beast itself. In recent years, this riddle has elicited increasingly accurate charts like the following one:

Malachy's Prophecy

What is not fully explained in the chart above, however, is why John the Revelator was taken to the time of John Paul II in his vision. Five were fallen (past), one was (present), and the others would come (future). One reason (noted in the chart) is that Pope John Paul II was shot, and his death was announced in the media before the fact of his survival came out. In a special way, he represented the beast with the deadly wound that was healed.

Glass of waterBut that’s not all. John Paul II was also the instrumental figure in turning the church into the direction of ecumenism, and it was he who elevated Bergoglio to the College of Cardinals. In that sense, Bergoglio/Francis is a “son” of John Paul II, like Belshazzar was a “son” of Nebuchadnezzar. Technically, Belshazzar was Nebuchadnezzar’s grandson, like Francis was John Paul II’s “grandson” across Benedict XVI. It fits perfectly.

Bottle of poison

Here is a table to show the comparison more clearly:

The Last 3 Kings of Ancient BabylonThe Last 3 Popes of Rome
NebuchadnezzarThe main builder of Babylon.John Paul IIThe main architect of the One World Religion.
NabonidusThe king who relinquished the throne of Babylon and gave it to his successor before his death.Benedict XVIThe pope who retired, thus opening the throne for his successor before his death.
BelshazzarGrandson of Nebuchadnezzar. The worst and most blasphemous of all of Babylon’s kings, who even took and profaned the sacred vessels from the house of the Lord. He died when the city was taken.FrancisCreated cardinal by John Paul II. First Jesuit, first Francis, first Latin American, etc. The New World Order will be destroyed under his reign.

Benedict XVI
The pope who retired, thus opening the throne for his successor before his death.

Isn’t it striking? Even the way Nabonidus was unpopular and preferred a life of devotion to his god is reflected in how Benedict’s style was not well-received, and he prefers his life of spiritual devotion. It’s a perfect parallel, straight from the pages of scripture!

I know the controlling powers try hard to ensure Pope Francis has a clean image (even though he doesn’t). We could easily say that Benedict XVI was more evil than John Paul II (considering the scandals and such, and his background in the Office of the Inquisition). In fact, many expected him to be the last and terrible pope. But then came the nice, humble, friendly Pope Francis. How could he match the evil character of Belshazzar?

Let me use an illustration to show how he fits the progression from bad to worse in the kings of Babylon. Consider the substances pictured—the bottle of dark poison on the left and the drinking glass filled with what appears to be water and ice on the right. Which substance is more dangerous? Without any suspicion, a person would easily swallow the colorless poison in the drinking glass, all because of its appearance.

Pope Francis’ good image makes him more evil; it is the element of deception that makes it more dangerous.

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (2 Thessalonians 2:7)

In conclusion, here is a timely YouTube video from TheForerunner777. When you get to the very middle of the video, you will find out why this will undoubtedly be our last series of articles.

There are only two choices: for God, or for Satan, and now you know who’s who.

In the next article, we will show you that what is possibly the largest crop circle formation in the history of the phenomenon points precisely to the abomination of desolation. This particular formation has been studied by many because of its symbolism as a winged serpent. Did you know this creature is described in the Bible? As you can see by the design (below), the crop circle formation depicts a serpent with wings, or in other words the feathered serpent of Mayan lore named Quetzalcoatl, that bloodthirsty god who is none other than Satan.

How does Pope Francis figure into it?
