Pope To Resign

Pope Benedict XVI first pope to resign in 600 years
Church law does allow for a pope to resign — if he is of sound mind and not forced out by fear or fraud. Under canon law, if a pope chooses to resign, no one is allowed to tell him he can't. According to the Vatican, John Paul II had secret letters, in 1989 and in 1994, offering to resign if he were too incapacitated to fulfill his ministry. 
Pope Benedict said in Light of the World, a collection of interviews with a German journalist, that a pope should resign if he "clearly realizes that he is no longer physically, psychologically, and spiritually capable of handling the duties of his office, then he has a right and, under some circumstances, also an obligation to resign."
Pope Benedict XVI's resignation explained

I am not sure what to make of this yet. I have read on other websites that this would possibly happen. Could they be forcing him out? They have forced out a couple others but that was 600 years ago. According to the rules given his advanced age, he would not be the one choosing the successor. 

Rev 18: For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

There's speculation that he quietened about speaking out against the same sex marriage law that had just been passed in England.


On the heels of his visit to Isreal apologising to the Jewish people regarding their treatment at the hands of the church, the Holy Spirit is convicting him on certain issues and he feels he can no longer represent an institution that goes against the will of God.

Where did you read those things? Links?

It makes you wonder if he is being forced out?

Not enough "Charisma" like JPIIs early years well according to Fox News anyhow...

With the spectulation out there, I do not believe a Pope would be convicted by the Holy Spirit about anything, this is a man whose life has been dedicated to the harlot and it's intrigues from the inside.

They are probably planning to bring one in that is far more overtly "liberal" and in advancing the interfaith one world religion agenda. [Benedict was just as dedicated to that as well] but maybe one who will be far more popular?

I asked years ago, what did they do with Popes that showed signs of dementia or Alzheimers? Considering their average ages, kind of strange, it's been 600 years without a senile Pope?

I thought Arinze was going to be the one put into place years ago when they chose him and was surprised they chose one who was so advanced in years.

And the date is 2-11- (13), and the year is 13. I wonder if that is significant.

@ Bornagain

I couldnt view your link.

Anyway, I do not agree with that interpretation of Rev 17.

So here is wisdom. The angel tells John that the seven heads represent seven mountains that the woman sits on, and the seven heads also represent seven kings. We must think of a time when the whore (Jerusalem) was sitting in the midst of each of these mountains. What I mean is this: Each of the seven mountains must have Jerusalem as a part of their region at the time of their existence. So who are these kings? The bible tells us five have died, one was alive at John's time, and the other has not came yet. The five who have died before John were:

1. Julius Caesar (the father of the Roman empire)

2. Augustus

3. Tiberius

4. Caligula

5. Claudius

6. Nero (who was alive at John's time. It is worth noting that Flavius Josephus dates Feb 68 as the official downfall of the Jewish state. Rulers at that time believed that whoever rules Jerusalem will rule the entire world. So every conquering country wants to control Jerusalem. Nero was the last ruler to control Jerusalem. The great city was destroyed by Titus army in 70 A.D.)

If you notice, the prophetic clock stops with Nero. Even though the list of Roman emperors continues, it stops prophetically because Jerusalem's obedience to the "beast system" ends with Nero.

7. The 7th ruler days, that is when the clock restarts when the Revived Roman empire controls Jerusalem again.

In my opinion, watch out for a of some kind of league of democracies, with Jerusalem as the international city.

Now we have to put up with the stupid catholic "prophecy" about the popes and which is the "last pope". So foolish. Since catholicism as a whole is false, then why would this dumb "prophesy" be anything but false as well?

Bible Believer said...

Yeah I didn't even mention that stuff because just another false prophecy and I've seen it already being mentioned online everywhere.

JL I read somewhere Obama is supposed to go to Israel in March, [3-22 specifically] not sure what to make of it, or if that has anything to do with the plans for making Jerusalem an international city, need to do some more reading.

They made sure that it played out to the luciferian prophecy. All part and parcel of the new world order. the next pope will have more people like-ability.All that can be shaken, will be shaken. Let's see how they play this out with Obama going to isreal after the new pope takes office 28th feb....

Bible Believer said...

Not an endorsement of this source..or of Tom Horn especially, odd the endless focus on Catholic prophecies...

Interesting they are following their luciferian prophecies, will they name the next one Peter? Wouldn't surprise me.

I think they are intent on selecting a very charismatic one, and probably one from the Southern hemisphere or Africa. Could be wrong, but wonder if it will be Arinze this go around or perhaps a Latin American one?

The timing with Obama going to Israel is very interesting...

Fanatic for Jesus wrote on this:

She is right Benedict is a spring chicken compared to JPII in his latter years. So the "health" excuse seems questionable. I've never seen any of these types interested in relinquishing power readily.

I lean towards all of this being planned. I've read theories about Benedict being forced out via the Butler and Vatican Bank scandals, but a guy like that doesn't get on top without holding a lot of secrets and power.

Given their luciferian prophecies, interesting they wanted them to match.

See what she writes about Tom Horn.

Thanks BB for the watching this meeting closely. I see its in regards to the Israel Palestinian conflict. Watching this closely...

It is also interesting how the pre-trib rapture crowd has grabbed onto this extrabiblical pope prophecy thing. Discernment is lacking in that group indeed.
