Pope Peter in the Bible? No…

Questions are abounding regarding the Pope’s resignation and Catholic prophecy. According St. Malachy in 1139, he had a vision regarding future popes on a trip to Rome. Here is the translated version.

“In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit … Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.”

The press is having fun and will continue to have fun with this. The science editor, Alan Boyle, from MSNBC has weighed in. “Just when you thought it was safe to go out of the bunker, there’s a fresh wave of doomsday buzz over a purported 12th-century prophecy suggesting that the next pope will be the last pope before the end of the world.”

Will the Catholic Church fulfill their prophecy? Of note, the leading favorite to be the next pope is Cardinal Peter Turkson, a member of the Roman Curia . He is from Ghana.

This Catholic prophecy is not from the Bible. This has nothing to do with the end of days scenario stated in Scripture. It is completely separate. One will not find these words from St. Malachy in the Bible. That will not matter to the media. One can see how this is going to be broadcast.

In closing, I will put my trust in Jesus personally instead of any man who claims to be a vicar for Christ. Why go through an intercessor when you can pray directly to the source?
