Despite a long list of freaky facts about Pope Francis, I have never been able to identify him as the False Prophet revealed in Revelation 13. I have shared many posts about him in the False Prophet category, but in each of them I was only able to call him a strong candidate.
The Lord showed me the identity of the first beast (antichrist), but so far nothing about the second beast (false prophet), so I am just speculating and watching to see what happens. One concern I have about Pope Francis is his age, now just two months away from his 79th birthday. By the time the Lord returns, he could be really ancient.
I came across two prophetic words both claiming Pope Francis is not the second beast, but watch out for his successor. Prophet Brian Carn posted the following prophetic word about Pope Francis on his website:
Pope Francis will have a health scare, but he will be fine. Pope Francis is being maligned, but he is not the one to worry about…it’s the next Pope that comes into office who will do very dark things. Be very prayerful about this.
Pastor Benjamin Faircloth of Ignited Church in Lavonia, GA posted a similar prophetic word about Pope Francis on his website:
Pope Francis will die and his successor will make way for the rising and appearance of the antichrist and his unholy spirit that shall increase and manifest throughout the earth. I do not know if this is a literal death or him resigning as Pope. I do know out of his own mouth he said he had 2-3 years left before he goes to the Father’s house.
These two words appear to contradict an ancient prophecy from Saint Malachy, which indicates Pope Francis would be the final Pope. I shared that in my previous post, St Malachy’s Medieval Prophecy Claims Pope Francis is the Final Pope. However, it is possible all of these could fit together perfectly if the Catholic Church is transformed into the new one-world all inclusive religion, which would mean the successor to Pope Francis would be the head of something different than any previous Pope. For more details on what the new church might look like, see my previous post, David Wilkerson: Two End-Time Super Churches Will Arise.
