Controversy within the Roman Church
Jan 06, 2020
Cardinal Raymond Burke and other Roman Catholics are opposing Pope Francis’ “new humanism” push which is planned for 2020. Humanism simply means putting man at the center of things. Beyond that, the word can have a variety of applications. In this case, it appears that the Pope is pushing for unification between Islam and Christianity—and eventually with Judaism as well. Ultimately, because “humanism” involves the whole world, he probably hopes to unite with and be the leader of Buddhism, Hinduism, and all other religions as well.
Cardinal Burke sees this as an attempt to replace Jesus Christ with “humans” in general. It begins by compromising the right of Jesus Christ to rule the earth as its rightful King, because unification with Islam is not possible apart from putting Mohammed above Jesus. It is not likely that Muslims would compromise their core belief, but apparently, the Cardinal believes that the Pope is willing to do so in the name of humanism.
One of the highest-ranking officials in the Catholic Church has spoken out in opposition to the Vatican's push for a new global pact that will promote a one-world government. American Cardinal Raymond Burke, one of the Catholic Church's most powerful figures, is calling on faithful Christians to “stand up and give witness to the truth” of Jesus Christ’s Kingship in the face of the rise of Islam. Cardinal Burke is now warning Christians about the Vatican’s push for a "global pact" that seeks to, in the words of Pope Francis, “create a new humanism….”
It was in September that Pope Francis announced he will be hosting in 2020 an initiative for a “global pact” to “create a new humanism….”
[After referring to Hillary Clinton’s Socialist Education book, It Takes a Village] The Pope continued in his message that in order to reach these “global objectives,” as an “educating village” we must “have the courage to place the human person at the center.”
Commenting on this, Mother Miriam, foundress of the religious community Daughters of Mary, Mother of Israel's Hope, said on her Sept. 16, 2019, podcast that such an educational village would “once and for all destroy the family and the human race.”
“The Pope said that in order to reach these global objectives as an educating village, we must ‘have the courage to place the human person at the center’,” she said.
"Isn't that what is wrong with our world today?”
"Instead of placing Christ at the center, we place man at the center."
“Some of these words sound very nice. And the demon appears as an ‘angel of light.’ Am I saying the Pope is demonic?” she added elsewhere in her podcast.
"No. I’m saying what he’s proposing is demonic."
My Comment: Pope Francis is shifting the Roman Church’s course in a major way, disturbing many devout Catholics. In my view, the time of the beast empires has been completed, and the Roman Church long ago adopted the carnal politics and practices of the beast mindset. That Church is the “little horn” prophesied in Daniel, which was an extension of the Western Roman Empire, which fell in 476 A.D.
Because the time of beast empires ended at the appointed time in October of 2017 (as I have explained many times elsewhere), we ought to be seeing cracks in the Church prior to its full collapse.
The prophecies of St. Malachy seemed to indicate that he could be the last Pope, i.e., “Peter the Roman.” Malachy, from Ireland, prophesied a description of 113 popes that were to come, beginning in the year 1143 A.D. He gave a brief description of each, ending with a final 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 his people. The End.”
The original publication of this prophecy in 1590 lists 111 popes prior to Peter the Roman. The 1820 edition included an extra pope (112). So Peter the Roman is either the 112th or 113th pope, depending on the source. However, it is clear that the last two on the list, were Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, who resigned in February of 2013.
John Paul II was the 110th pope. Malachy describes him as De Lobaore solis (“of the eclipse of the sun”). John Paul II was born on May 18, 1920 during a solar eclipse in Poland. When he was finally buried on April 8, 2005, the world experienced a very unusual "hybrid eclipse" of the sun. The central path of the eclipse ran across the South Pacific where it changed from an annular eclipse to a total eclipse and then back again to an annular eclipse before reaching South America.
Malachy said of the 111th pope, Gloria Olivae (“the glory of the olive”). Cardinal Ratzinger became the 111th pope, called Benedict XVI. The Benedictine Order is known as the "Olivetans," because the olive tree is their symbol.
The last pope described in the prophecy above is not necessarily the successor of the pope who was described previously. Malachy did not say specifically that the last pope was the next pope after Gloria Olivae. Some say this may indicate a shortened list that leaves out some popes prior to the final one. If so, then Pope Francis could be an interim pope not mentioned by Malachy. If Francis dies or resigns and is succeeded by another, it would prove that he was not Peter the Roman.
In support of that view, Francis is not named Peter, nor was he a “Roman” before being elected pope in 2013, although his parents were Italian immigrants to Argentina. On the other hand, when he took the name “Francis” after his election, he named himself after St. Francis of Assisi, whose father was named Pietro (English: “Peter”). If the pope has identified himself with St. Francis, then it could be said that his father is Peter, and it may be argued that Pope Francis is indeed Peter the Roman.
In the end, we will have to watch how events unfold. Meanwhile, Pope Francis is turning toward humanism and is actively seeking to unite the religions of the world in the guise of peace. I would support any effort to make peace with those of other religions, of course, but to compromise Christ’s right to rule the earth as the only-begotten Son of God is as unacceptable as rejecting the efficacy of His blood in paying for the sin of the world. Without these core beliefs, Christianity is just another man-made religion that can also be changed at the whims of men.
It is curious, too, that Malachy’s prophecies appear to contradict the idea that the Roman Church will never be destroyed (based on their interpretation of Matthew 16:18). In my view, the Church throughout the Pentecostal Age was prophesied by King Saul, who too was crowned on the day of Pentecost (1 Samuel 12:17, “wheat harvest”). Saul’s dynasty ended with David, who represents the overcomers.
Malachy’s final prophecy says “the city of seven hills will be destroyed,” which indicates that Rome is not “the eternal city,” as many have claimed—unless, of course, we understand “eternal” (aeternas) in its original meaning, where it often was limited to an age. Whatever the case, the present age is now coming to an end, and the Age of Tabernacles is upon us.
