Francis not planning on being around too much longer

Pope Francis (


Pope Francis does not expect to be pontiff too many more years:

March 13, 2015

Hearing confessions to mark his second anniversary as head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis offered a confession of his own Friday: He doubts he’ll be pontiff for long.

“I have the feeling that my pontificate will be brief, 4 or 5 years; I do not know, even 2 or 3,” the 78-year-old Francis said during an interview with Mexican broadcaster Televisa.

“Two have already passed. It’s a somewhat vague sensation,” he said, according to a Vatican translation from Spanish. “I feel that the Lord has placed me here for a short time, and nothing more.”

He compared the feeling to “a gambler who convinces himself he will lose so he won’t be disappointed. And if he wins, he’s happy.”

In the past, he dropped a hint or two that he might like to resign like Benedict XVI did.  Of course, if he does not resign and does not die, he could be around much longer than he indicated today.

Because of his age (he is currently 78), I have had concerns whether or not Pope Francis would be the final pope.  In order to be such, he would have to live at least another 7 1/2 years and probably longer than that.

Perhaps I should add that a YouTube video I watched from a Protestant source claimed that Pope Francis’ planned trip to the USA and United Nations in September 2015, combined with the blood moon that month, are signs that a one-world government will start then along with a ‘seven-year tribulation.’  I would add that unless the deal of Daniel 9:27 is confirmed around then, I do not consider this to be possible (see Blood Moons and Prophecy and  also The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27).

Now, according to a Catholic prophecy from an Irish Catholic saint named Malachy, Francis should have been the last pope, the anti-pope of Catholic prophecy and the final Antichrist of biblical prophecy (see The Malachy Prophecies and “Peter the Roman”).

As I have long written, whether or not he is the last pontiff, Pope Francis has taken a lot of steps that will assist with the agenda of the final Antichrist, antipope.

From his calls for economic reforms, to his Marian devotion, to his ecumenical and interfaith agenda Pope Francis pushes for results that the Bible warns against being part of (Zechariah 2:6-7) and that it will end in disaster (Revelation 18:1-8).

Pope Francis has been able to get a lot of positive attention from the media, and whoever will be the last pope will as well.

Some have claimed that someone may assassinate Pope Francis, and that remains a possibility.  But presuming he is not the last pope, Pope Francis has made major ‘gains’ in the ecumenical agenda that will one day affect the world (Revelation 13:4,8).

Pope Francis: Could this Marian Focused Pontiff be Fulfilling Prophecy? Pope Francis has taken many steps to turn people more towards his version of ‘Mary.’ Could this be consistent with biblical and Catholic prophecies? This article documents what has been happening. There is also a video version titled Pope Francis: Could this Marian Focused Pontiff be Fulfilling Prophecy?
Pope Francis and the Famine of the Word Pope Francis made some comments indicating that violence is appropriate when one is offended and that freedom of expression should not offend the religions of others. Is that biblical? What will his interfaith agenda lead to? Might his comments be a factor in the prophesied ‘famine of the word’ that the Prophet Amos wrote of? Should Christians refrain from making statements that might offend other? What did Jesus and His disciples do? What should you do? This is a video. A written article of related interest is: Pope Francis pushing for limits of speech and seemingly justifies violence.
Blood Moons and Prophecy There were four ‘blood moons’ expected in 2014 and 2015. Now two remain.  Might they signal the Day of the Lord or the return of Jesus Christ? A related YouTube video is also available: Blood Moons, Prophecy, 2014, and 2015.
The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27 This prophecy could give up to 3 1/2 years advance notice of the coming Great Tribulation. Will most ignore or misunderstand its fulfillment? Here is a link to a related sermon video Daniel 9:27 and the Start of the Great Tribulation.
The Malachy Prophecies and “Peter the Roman” An Irish bishop allegedly predicted something about 112 popes in the 12th century. Pope Benedict XVI was number 111. Francis would be number 112–if he is that one–and if so, he is to reign until Rome is destroyed. May he be an antipope/final Antichrist?
