Living Under the Last Pope: 12 Facts You Must Know

Pope Francis I CoronationThe world has been living under the reign of pope Francis I, the 8th and final king, since he was enthroned as the absolute monarch of the Vatican Kingdom on March 19, 2013. 

In the Middle Ages, the popes enjoyed absolute power over all the emperors, kings, princes, and nobility of Europe. However, in 1798 the papacy received a deadly wound and entered into its "wilderness" experience. (See Revelation 13:3 & 17:3) Recovery from this deadly wound has been a slow, yet steady process. In 1929, the papacy managed to greatly accelerate her recovery efforts when she, together with the kingdom of Italy, signed the Lateran treaty, which essentially made the pope "king" of the Vatican city-state. Although this was a far cry from the despotic power she enjoyed in the Middle Ages, the papacy was pleased to accept the agreement, as it was a necessary step in her recovery.

Revelation 17 foretold that there would be 7 kings, followed by an 8th and final king. It is during the reign of this final king, pope Francis I, that the papacy will fully recover from the deadly wound inflicted by the French civil power in 1798.

8 Kings of Revelation 17; Francis I = 8th King, the last pope 

No one living today has at any point witnessed the papacy ruling in the fullness of her beast power. Sadly, most are either ignorant or oblivious to the dark history of the papacy when she ruled over the kings of the earth as a dreadful beast power. It is estimated that between 50 and 100 million of Yahuwah’s followers were martyred at the hand of the papacy for daring to stand up to this wicked institution.

That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind will be questioned by no Protestant who has a complete knowledge of history… It is impossible to form a complete conception of the multitude of her victims… and it is quite certain that no powers of imagination can adequately realize their sufferings.” (W.E.H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe, Vol. 2; 32)

Below are 12 facts that we must understand about living under the reign of the 8th king, the last pope - Francis I.

Fact #1: The return of Yahushua is only a few years away.

Second Coming of YahushuaWe can proclaim with exceeding joy that the return of Yahushua is but a few years away.  When we consider the age of Pope Francis (76 years old) and his health (living with 1 lung), it is reasonable to conclude that he can’t carry out successfully his mission for many years.  The 7th king (Benedict XVI) relinquished his office at the age of 85, citing his inability to cope with the demands of the office.

Fact #2: Final Events will unfold in rapid succession, given the shortness of time.

Between now and the return of Yahushua, the following events will take place:

Thus, we can see that the timeline between now and the Glorious return of Yahushua is packed with major events. And we can only conclude, therefore, that these final events will unfold at an incredible speed.

Fact #3: Character perfection will have to be achieved during a short period of time.

We no longer have the luxury of time in overcoming every weakness and besetting sin. We need to wage a relentless war against every sin, while His grace is still available to us.

Fact #4: There will not be any lasting worldwide economic prosperity.

On the contrary, the current economic crisis engulfing the world is destined to worsen dramatically going forward, especially as the Trumpets are sounded. The economic despair that is soon to engulf the world will be one of the major factors that will entice world leaders to surrender their power and authority to pope Francis, Revelation's eighth king. This unprecedented move will be the consequence of desperation and despair on the part of world leaders.

Fact #5: The rate of cataclysmic events will accelerate.

We can expect more earthquakes, sinkholes, storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, famines, etc… going forward.

Fact #6: Soon to take place... Satanic impersonations of the dead, particularly of Yahushua's disciples and Mary, climaxing in Satan impersonating Yahushua Himself.

As Francis ascends in power and stature, his worldwide standing will be solidified through the demonic impersonation of Bible characters. This will deceive the world into believing that Heaven is backing and blessing Francis' actions. The Scriptures will be the only true safeguard against the widespread deception that will engross all who would not receive the love of the truth.

Fact #7: The Spirit of Yahuwah will be increasingly withdrawn from this world, resulting in the escalation of wickedness, chaos, turmoil.

While there will be calls for peace and tranquility from pope Francis and world leaders, there will be increasing turmoil and an incessantly escalating number of wars and rumors of wars; some of these wars will be nuclear.

Fact #8: A 'no buying/selling' decree will be enacted against true Sabbath keepers and will be enforced throughout the world, at the instigation of the 8th king, pope Francis I.

The prophesied 'no buying/selling' decree (Rev.13:17) will be enacted against true Sabbath keepers at the instigation of pope Francis, the last pope. It will be proclaimed that the world’s restored prosperity is dependent on universal homage to Rome’s counterfeit Sunday sabbath, and that those who stand in the way must be punished by depriving them of the right to buy and sell.

Fact #9: Regional wars will flare up all over the world, and the UN will be unable to contain the multitudinous conflicts.

Fact #10: Food and water shortages will sweep the world, causing the death of millions.

The devastating impact of the Trumpets coupled with the ongoing drought in major bread-basket countries will lead to worldwide food and water shortages.

The world will believe Rome's lies, and Yahuwah's faithful will experience unprecedented hatred and persecution by the suffering masses.

Fact #12: Towards the end of pope Francis' reign, Yahushua will cease His intercessory work in the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary

The world will not know when Yahushua ceases His intercessory work on behalf of sinners. But when this dreadful event takes place, it will mean that there will be no more repentance for sin; the final sealing of both the righteous and the wicked will have taken place.

We are indeed living in a most solemn time. This is not the time to bury our heads in the sand. If we are serious about accepting Yahuwah’s last call of mercy, then we cannot afford to procrastinate our unconditional surrender to His Spirit. We need to take hold of every precious moment given us, to build our characters and be cleansed from every sin and weakness. The cleansing process does not take place overnight. It requires time and a relentless battle against self. His Spirit is ever-ready to aid us in this very necessary transformatory work.

May we arise to the seriousness of the times in which we live. We are closer to eternity than ever, but between now and eternity, we have much work to do in ourselves and for others.
