Prophecy & Popes:

In the first half of Monday’s show, biblical prophecy expert Cris Putnam talked about the resignation of Pope Benedict in relation to St. Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes. In the 12th century, the Irish seer, St. Malachy, had a vision of who each Pope would be, and made a list of 112 names, ending with a final Pope named Petrus Romans (or Peter the Roman). Since the resigning Benedict is the 111th Pope, the next one could be the one Malachy prophesied about, saying he would deal with many tribulations, including the destruction of Rome. Whether or not the next Pope is actually named Peter may not be relevant because “every Pope has…a claim to the chair of St. Peter; just the fact that you get elected to be Pope kind of puts you as the Peter in charge at that time, so it could just be an oblique reference to an Italian Pope,” he explained. Though, there are a few candidates high on the lis t who do have the name of Peter, he added.

Putnam found it interesting that Malachy’s vision of tribulations and the destruction of Rome seem to correlate to the Book of Revelation, chapter 17, which refers to a “great harlot that sits on many waters” that has been interpreted as the Roman church gone apostate (abandoning its faith). Additionally, there’s a prophecy from the ancient Book of Zohar that predicts a meteor shower hailing down on Rome in the Jewish year 5773, which corresponds to the 2012-2013 period, he noted. Putnam also shared a quatrain from Nostradamus that could be interpreted to mean that a young black Cardinal will seize the papacy.
