THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28,
There are over 2,300
sensationalist videos on YouTube, myriad articles all over
the internet, and Kristian TV programs galore that
say the cashless society "prophesied in the Bible" is
Besides dealing with
the same topic, what
all of them HAVE IN COMMON IS THIS:
NONE of them can provide ONE
predicts a "cashless society".
That means that they ALL have ANOTHER
THEY ARE ALL
A cashless society is NOT, repeat, IS
NOT prophesied in the Bible AT ALL.
If you're new to this website, I'll give you a couple
of seconds to catch your breath...
That's right: there
isn't ONE verse of Scripture -
from Genesis to Revelation - that mentions a "cashless
No such thing is mentioned in the Book of
No such thing is mentioned ANYWHERE in
connection to the reign of Antichrist.
Good question. Here's how it
"And he causes ALL, both small and
great, rich and poor, free and slave, TO RECEIVE A MARK IN
THEIR RIGHT HAND, OR IN THEIR FOREHEADS:
And that NO
MAN MIGHT BUY OR SELL, except he that had the mark, or the
name of the beast, or the number of his name".
Please find me ANYTHING in those two verses that
says cash will no longer be used.
They DON'T say it.
ALL it says is that NO
ONE will be able to buy or sell UNLESS he/she/they have the
mark of Antichrist, the name of Antichrist, or the number
of his name in their right hands or foreheads, PERIOD.
NOWHERE does it say that
his mark WILL BE USED AS METHOD OF PAYMENT for
whatever an individual or group is purchasing.
we told that his mark WILL
REPLACE customary methods of payment.
NOWHERE in that verse
are we told that cash, credit
cards, debit cards, gift certificates, checks, letters of
credit, gold, silver, coins, notes, IOU's, barter, jewelry,
personal property, services, coupons, or ANY OTHER
TRADITIONAL METHOD OF PAYMENT will
become outlawed or obsolete.
What about the

Well, WHAT about
I don't know about you, but I stop by the
supermarket every week and have the bar codes on groceries
read by a scanner, which tells the supermarket what I
purchased and how much to charge me.
I even have a
card, also read by a scanner that entitles to me to special
discounts on selected items.
DON'T DO is PAY for
those purchases via scanner.
The supermarket accepts
cash, personal checks, company checks, credit and debit
cards and gift cards as payment.
if we indulged the illusory fantasy of many in the prophecy
the mark of the beast will be A
UNIFORM SYSTEM instituted worldwide, where
EVERYONE BREATHING will receive a microchip implant, that
STILL DOES NOT SAY OR IMPLY that transactions will
be PAID via
microchip implant AT ALL, let
as they FALSELY TEACH.
But I've read 9 different
books that say...
I don't care if you read A
I don't care WHO the author(s) of such

NO SUCH THING.
Who are you going to believe God

"mortals" you believe in DO CHARGE at least $14.95 a pop
You're smart enough: figure it out.
that so-called "Bible prophecy" on the market is JUST A
Ha! My dear brother or sister, WHERE
HAVE YOU BEEN FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS?
As long as we're on THIS TOPIC, let me add a few
A. NOWHERE does Scripture
the system of the mark will be A UNIFORM system instituted
by "worldwide" I mean WHATEVER'S LEFT of the world, when it
happens. We know that ONE
THIRD of the PLANET is INCINERATED as soon as the
tribulation judgments begin,
B. Matter of fact, Revelation
13:17-18 clearly INDICATE IT
WILL NOT BE A UNIFORM SYSTEM as
there will be AT LEAST THREE acceptable methods of
obtaining approval to buy or sell:
1. The mark
2. The NAME of Antichrist.
NUMBER of his name which is 666.
So, we can kiss
THAT THEORY good bye.
C. Such worldwide system DOES
NOT EXIST right now DESPITE the state-of-the-art technology
at our disposal and DESPITE things being relatively normal.
The MAIN REASON is that it's both, EXTREMELY COSTLY and
takes LOTS OF TIME to implement.
And you're going to
seriously tell me that during the next 3½ years,
when the Antichrist is reigning, when the world is
DEVASTATED, after it's been geographically rearranged,
financial systems have collapsed, one third of vegetation
is burnt, one third of marine life destroyed, one third of
waters contaminated, ONE THIRD OF MANKIND DIES, one third
of the sea - and later
THE WHOLE SEA -
turned into coagulated FOUL SMELLING blood, as that of a
DEAD PERSON, and A BARRAGE OF HORRIFIC JUDGMENTS FALLING
FAST AND FURIOUS ON THIS EARTH WITHOUT ANY REPRIEVE...
That SOMEHOW Antichrist
and his cronies will find the time and money IN THAT SHORT
PERIOD to implement a PAY BY MICROCHIP IMPLANT system
That UNDEVELOPED countries like Uganda, or Uzbekistan, who
DO NOT have it NOW, will have it THEN?
If you believe THAT, I have a great bridge in
Brooklyn, with a lovely view, that I'd like to sell you.
Heck even DEVELOPED REGIONS like the U.S. or the EU DON'T
HAVE IT NOW! WHY would they have it THEN?
It's NOT HAPPENING: the "cashless society" UNDER
Antichrist is PURE MYTH, pure RELIGIOUS INVENTION.
Keeping in mind that paper
money (cash) DID NOT EXIST when the Bible was written, THERE
indicate money will still be in use during the tribulation
and even DURING THE MILLENNIUM (Ezekiel 7:12-19; Daniel
11:38,43; Zechariah 14:14, Revelation 11:10; 18:11-13).
So, the LIARS who push a "cashless society" under
Antichrist are CONTRADICTING
GOD by CONTRADICTING SCRIPTURE.
The ONLY "cashless society" in our future is when Jesus
creates NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH.

NOT THE GREATEST
NOWHERE in the ENTIRE
Bible are we told that "keeping the 10 Commandments" is the
fulfillment of God's law.
There isn’t ONE verse
in the Scriptures that says such thing.
The 10 Commandments
ARE NOT the fulfillment of God’s law.
DENOMINATIONS are built upon this FALSE PREMISE.
ONE except Jesus has EVER kept the 10 Commandments, but EVEN
IF (hypothetically speaking) WE COULD keep them to
law WOULD REMAIN UNFULFILLED.
So, WHAT GOOD IS
IT to try to "keep" the 10 Commandments? WHY
try to keep them if they DON'T fulfill God's law?
Why keep them if they
DON'T SATISFY GOD?
God gave Moses the law on Mount Sinai. It contained
613 specific commandments, comprised of the Ten
Commandments, plus 603 more.
Moses, in turn,
delivered it to Israel.
Law clingers and Moses
clingers INSIST on IMPOSING 10 Commandment keeping on those
who've been LIBERATED from the yoke of legalism.
the Gospels, however, we have a Pharisee, who also happened
to be a scribe (LAW SPECIALIST) who asked Jesus
IS THE GREAT
COMMANDMENT in the law?"
Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord
your God with
ALL YOUR HEART and
with ALL YOUR SOUL and with ALL YOUR MIND (Matthew
22:37-38; Deuteronomy 6:5)
THIS is THE FIRST and
GREATEST commandment". (Matthew
And the second is LIKE IT: LOVE YOUR
NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF (Matthew 22:39; Leviticus 19:18).
ALL THE LAW AND THE
ON THESE TWO commandments." (Matthew
and ALL THE PROPHETS, HANG
ON THESE TWO commandments.
Therefore, ALL THE LAW, ALL THE PROPHETS, AND EVEN THE 10
Commandments, HANG ON THE TWO.
You got a problem
with THAT, talk to Jesus.
The TWO commandments Jesus gave - on
which, ACCORDING TO HIM - hang ALL the law and prophets,WERE
NOT PART OF THE 10.
They were NOT
part of the 10 Commandments.
And Jesus said THESE TWO WERE THE
Evidently, then, the 10 WEREN'T
THAT IMPORTANT TO HIM.
Repeat: if the 10 Commandments WEREN'T THE
GREATEST, evidently, they WEREN'T
THAT IMPORTANT to Jesus.
He wouldn't have called these TWO - which
are NOT EVEN PART OF the 10 - THE
Moreover, if ON THESE TWO, according to the Lord
Himself hang ALL
THE LAW (all
613 commandments, including the 10) and
ALL the prophets,
WOULD IT BE NECESSARY to observe the 10?
Why would observing
the 10 BE
A REQUIREMENT FOR SALVATION?

think you know more about God's law and are more righteous

would it be NECESSARY to keep a 24-hour day called Sabbath
(the 4th commandment) WHEN ON THESE TWO hang ALL THE
OTHERS, including the 4th?
Some legalists call THE APOSTLE Paul a "false
prophet" in a desperate attempt to justify their legalism,
and ACCUSE HIM FALSELY (thus breaking the 8th commandment)
of CONTRADICTING Jesus.
SAID THE SAME THING AS JESUS in
"The commandments, "Do not commit
adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 25,
As we get closer to
the Rapture and tribulation, it's time to re-examine the
role of the 144,000 Jews mentioned in Revelation 7:1-8, and
again, in Revelation 14:1-5.
First let me tell you who
1. They are

"visions" THAT LIAR named Ellen White claimed to have had.
2. They are
3. They are

The Bible makes it crystal clear that they
are NATURAL ISRAELITES who
receive Jesus as Savior and God.
They are from
THE TRIBES OF Israel:

tribe of Reuben 12,000,
tribe of Gad 12,000,
tribe of Asher 12,000,
tribe of Naphtali 12,000,
tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
tribe of Simeon 12,000,
tribe of Levi 12,000,
tribe of Issachar 12,000,
tribe of Zebulun 12,000,
tribe of Joseph 12,000,
tribe of Benjamin 12,000"

We know they remain AT
THE VERY least during the first 5 months of tribulation while

Revelation 14:4 seems to indicate they

biblical text that at least PART of their purpose is to

HATED BY GENTILES
In Matthew 24:9, Jesus
addresses His Jewish disciples about
the time of tribulation and says "you
shall be hated OF ALL GENTILES for my Name's sake".
Most English Bibles
read "nations". However,
was SPEAKING EXCLUSIVELY TO JEWS, and
SINCE THE CHURCH DID NOT EVEN EXIST YET, the
correct rendering should be "GENTILES".
The Greek word for
"nations" is ethnon which
is ALSO the word that MEANS "gentiles".
There are physical gentiles
and spiritual gentiles.
Spiritually speaking, physical
gentiles who have received the Jewish Messiah as Lord,
Savior and God, are no longer gentiles,
of the Commonwealth of Israel [Ephesians
strictly speaking, are NOT gentiles.
That's why most
Christians today love and support Israel.
Who, then, was our
Lord referring to when He said ALL
GENTILES would hate the Jews?
He was referring, of
those gentiles who DO NOT believe in Him.
UNSAVED gentiles will
still be on earth AFTER Christians are raptured.
Christ-hating gentiles will
hate Jesus and will hate Jews because Jesus is a Jew.
They will also hate
Jews because many of them will turn to their Messiah with
all their hearts, right after the Rapture, after they've
seen Him coming in the clouds [Zechariah
12:10; Joel 2:12,13].
UNSAVED Gentles will hate them
ONLY ONES ON EARTH AT THAT TIME who will love Jesus and
WANT Jesus to return will
the Two Witnesses (Jews), the 144,000 Jews and OTHER Jews
who turn to their Messiah in repentance and faith (Matthew
So, they will be THE ONLY OPPOSITION to the
reign of their champion, the infamous Antichrist (Daniel
Eventually, SOME gentiles will come around
and receive Jesus (Revelation 14:6,18; 15:2) but that will
happen just prior to the Second Coming of Christ, TOWARD
THE END OF the 3½-year tribulation.
As it is, most
gentiles already hate Jews.
Most nations, not to
mention certain unsavory elements in the media, are either
blatantly anti-Semitic or have a strong bias against the
Jewish State and Jews in general.
The only "gentile"
friends Israel has had, at least until recently, are the
U.S. and the U.K.
That, however, is
of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob better open their eyes and
realize that born-again
Christians are BOTH, A LARGE part of spiritual Israel, and
THE BEST FRIENDS this side of heaven that Israel has.
Sadly, most of them
won't come to this stark realization, until
their BEST FRIENDS are no longer around.

THOSE WHO ARE IN JUDEA
THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, STAND
IN THE HOLY PLACE (temple)...
Then let them
who are in Judea FLEE INTO THE MOUNTAINS...For
BE GREAT TRIBULATION,
SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD TO THIS
TIME, NO, NOR EVER SHALL BE" (Matthew 24:15-21).
understand what Jesus was saying, we must differentiate
between the Roman province called Judea, which encompassed
Judea, Samaria and southern Jordan, and whose central
government was based in Caesarea, and BIBLICAL
Judea which was much smaller and corresponds roughly with
the territory of Israel's Southern Kingdom during the
Divided Kingdom era, and whose administrative capital is
The Roman province was officially established in
The Kingdom of Judah, BIBLICAL Judea, dates back to
Jesus, being Jewish,
would have referred to the latter.
The area to which Jesus made reference appears
the map below.
Moreover, Jesus was in Jerusalem,
Judea, more specifically on the Mount of Olives, when He
issued that warning to His fellow Jews.
Christians write in all the time asking if these verses
were intended for them, and might
they have to flee during the tribulation.
Unless you live in Judea (southern Israel), and are NOT
saved, it has NO APPLICATION WHATSOEVER TO YOU.
those in Judea (Jerusalem and surroundings) who
remain on earth during the tribulation will
get to see THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION spoken of by
Daniel and mentioned in Matthew 24:15 above.
Unless you live there
and are unsaved I
promise YOU WON'T HAVE TO "flee into the Judean Mountains".
If you live in New York, Texas, Iowa or Minnessota, you
DON'T LIVE IN Judea, you won't see the AOD, and this DOES
NOT APPLY TO YOU. Is that clear enough for everyone?
I don't know about you, but the Holy Spirit and I
sustain almost uninterrupted dialogue. Were He NOT God, I'm
certain I'd drive Him crazy, because I'm ALWAYS ASKING HIM
One question that perplexed me for some
time and that He recently answered is:
Jesus say in Revelation 12:6 say that Jews will hide in the
whereas in Matthew 24:15-21 He tells those in Judea
(Jerusalem and surroundings) to
flee ONLY when they SEE the AOD standing IN THE TEMPLE?
What's the difference?
According to Daniel
8:13-14, the AOD will stand for 2,300 evening and morning
offerings, which equal 1,150
then the temple will be cleansed.
The difference between
1,260 days and 1,150 days is 110 days, which are three
Hebrew months and 20 days.
The answer is that Jews from OTHER AREAS like Tel
Aviv, Haifa, Netanya, etc. will
hide first and remain hidden for 1,260 days.
The Judean population, or at least a portion thereof, will
hide a few months later for approximately 1,150 days.
Why would Jesus SINGLE OUT the residents of Judea?
where the third temple must be built and the AOD placed.
If they fled earlier,
there wouldn't be enough time to finish the third temple or
to reinstate the daily offerings which have not been made
for nearly 2,000 years.
Daily offerings MUST BE REINSTATED FIRST in some form
or fashion in order to fulfill the prophecies that
Antichrist will put an END to them (Daniel 8:12-13; 11:31).
God's Word never ceases to amaze me.
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20,
Readers often ask us
to decipher various portions of this chapter.
CONTEXT, as you know, is CRITICAL to proper understanding: TO
WHOM is Jesus speaking?WHAT PERIOD OF TIME is He talking
I've always felt that, like any other portion of
Scripture, if you read it CAREFULLY and ANALYTICALLY AND
ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SPEAK THROUGH the written Word,
the confusion just vanishes.
However, if I know many
in my audience, the confusion isn't likely to go away any
time soon. So, I'm
going to attempt something I've never done before: CLARIFICATION
OF VERSES 1-35, a Word

Verses 36-51 are pretty self-explanatory.

this particular study, which is the easiest for most people
to understand. I have made a few MINOR CHANGES to the text in

And so it was. This
prophecy was fulfilled in 70 A.D. when the Romans destroyed
the temple, not leaving ONE stone upon another, just

It CANNOT mean

Jesus made this statement around
33 A.D. Revelation was written 63 years later in 96 A.D.
He wouldn't say "the NUMBER of days will be fewer than

In context, He was talking about BOTH:
generation of His day,
which would not pass away without the temple being
destroyed to the point that one stone would not be left
upon another (Matthew 24:2). And,
THIS (OUR) GENERATION,
which began in the LATE 1960's to 1970, WITH
MASSIVE RELIGIOUS DECEPTION SUPPOSEDLY
"IN JESUS' NAME" (Matthew 24:4).
THE SAME GENERATION as
the one mentioned in Luke 21:24-32 that saw Jerusalem
return to the Jews IN 1967 after, 2,030 days of
UNINTERRUPTED GENTILE TRAMPLING.

been helpful to many of you.

Let's set aside St. Malachi's prophecy
and what happened this past week...
I have never
based my teachings on
ANYTHING OTHER THAN the holy, inspired, infallible Word of
the Living God.
While there are MYRIAD FALSE PROPHETS polluting
cyberspace and the airwaves with their FALSE, self-serving,
UNBIBLICAL pronouncements, there
are TRUE prophets of God around.
Granted, that they are
EXTREMELY RARE and EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND in this day and
THE BIBLE SAYS there
will be "apostles, PROPHETS,
evangelists, pastors and teachers" UNTIL we
ALL come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge
of the Son of God unto a perfect man" (or PERFECT ADAM)...
Since we're NOT there
by any stretch of the imagination - then
there MUST BE SOME TRUE prophets around:
Based on the EVIDENCE, Saint Malachi was ONE such
This isn't something that I invented,
and it has little or nothing to do with the fact I grew up
in Roman Catholicism.
Those who have problems with
that statement should take it up with God, since HE SAID
IT. It's only been in your New Testament for 2,000 years.
If some of you studied the New Testament once in a while,
instead of allowing your carnal religious prejudice get the
better of you, and instead of getting your theology and
eschatology "filtered" through YouTube, or some stupid,
biased blog read by 8 or 9 people, you'd
KNOW these things.
God also gave us THE
STANDARD BY WHICH to judge TRUE prophets: their predictions
MUST NEVER contradict Scripture (Deuteronomy
13:1-3; Jeremiah 23:16, 21, 25, 34-36; Romans 3:4), and MUST
always be 100% correct (Deuteronomy
18:21, 22; Numbers 12:6).
Malachi PASSES SUCH tests
since he's hit the nail on the head 266 times OVER
AN 800-YEAR time span,
and NEVER MISSED.
That's a HECK OF A LOT MORE than I
can say for some of the FALSE PROPHETS that
some of you worship, constantly run after, send money to,
and are taken in by.
Since January 2, 2010 I have been TEACHING - not
prophesying - but TEACHING, based
on Daniel 9:25, that the Second Coming of Jesus MUST TAKE
PLACE 49 years from the word to "return and build" biblical
And that such "word" (order, decree)
came in June, 1967 shortly after Jews recaptured the Jewish
Quarter of the Old City.
THAT is SOLID,
So solid, that the teaching's been posted on our
website FOR OVER THREE YEARS with AN OPEN INVITATION for
ANYONE - scholar, theologian, university professor, pastor,
minister, layperson, skeptic, ANYONE AT ALL, to disprove it
based on the Scriptures.
To date, NO ONE has dared
We have had MANY QUESTIONS about it,
but ZERO challenges.
Daniel 9:25 is in PERFECT
AGREEMENT WITH at least TWO other Scriptures:
the Lord shall build up Zion (a/k/a Jewish Quarter) HE
SHALL APPEAR IN HIS GLORY".
Luke 21:24-27 which says that Jesus will
APPEAR "WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY" within a generation (40-50
years) after the gentile trampling of Jerusalem (in
context, the Old City) comes to an end.
trampling by gentiles UNDISPUTEDLY came to an end on June
God's Word says that "by the testimony of
TWO OR THREE witnesses shall EVERY matter be established"
ESTABLISHED, based on God's INERRANT Word, that the Second
Coming of Christ MUST take place 49 years AFTER the
word to rebuild Jerusalem is given, which means Christ
RETURNS to earth in 2016.
Since this is 2013, His
Second Coming MUST BE NEAR, and
the Rapture, which PRECEDES the Second Coming by at least
3½ years, MUST BE EVEN NEARER. Amen.
But wait, there's MORE:
Matthew 24:4-8, Jesus
The "birthpangs" that would precede the
tribulation itself would be:
DECEPTION of believers, supposedly
"in the Name of Christ".

ANY HONEST person would have to answer
ALL OF THAT came from the Word of God.
I'm no mathematician, but let's just use common sense:
WHAT ARE THE ODDS of
ALL THAT HAPPENING AT
ONCE and in PERFECT TIMING WITH the aforementioned
prophecies about His appearing?
Now, when you take the prophecy of someone who's
been right on target 266
times over 8 CENTURIES and
it is ALSO IN PERFECT AGREEMENT WITH Bible prophecy in both
description and TIMING...
When his prophecy that there would be ONE more
Catholic leader after Benedict who would shepherd the RCC
through "many tribulations" and then Rome would be
destroyed, and then Jesus would RETURN AND JUDGE the people
on earth is
being fulfilled RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES...
And when you take into consideration that he used
the designation "Petrus Romanus" or "Peter the Roman" for
that FINAL Catholic leader, and
there just "happens" to be a Cardinal at this particular
time whose name is Peter, who
is the present Secretary of State for the Vatican, and who
comes from a town named ROMANO Canavese...
The odds of ALL OF THAT happening SIMULTANEOUSLY are
Give me a break...

POPE AND METEOR
Whew! It's been one
heck of a week,
On Monday, the Pope suddenly resigns.
Couple of days ago, a meteor crashes into Russia, causing
widespread panic and injury to some 1,200 people, not to
mention shattering windows and damaging infrastructure.
And to cap it all off South Africa's heroic athlete
Oscar Pistorius shoots his girlfriend dead... How
disturbing is that?
Valentine's Day almost got lost
in the midst of all the turmoil.
For Oscar's, his
family's, his girlfriend's family, his many fans, and
everyone else's sake let's hope and pray this awful tragedy
was not intentional but just a case of mistaken identity,
as they're now saying.
According to U.K.'s The
NASA, the meteor in Siberia exploded with
a force 30 times greater than the A-bomb dropped on
Russians were "lucky" in the sense that if fell on
a relatively unpopulated area.
Can you imagine if it
had fallen on
a major metropolis like St. Petersburg or Moscow?
Lord, have mercy!
Scary at that was, IT'S
CHILD'S PLAY compared to the GIGANTIC meteor shower
described in Revelation 6:12-14 as one of the events that
take place, concurrent with the Rapture, when Jesus opens
the 6th seal.
When a meteor hits the earth, like
this one did, it becomes a meteorite.
meteor mentioned in Revelation 6:13 may hit the earth, but
doubtlessly many will.
And when you consider the OTHER things that happen
at the same time, including a GINORMOUS quake that changes
geography as we know it...
I don't know about you, but
I don't want to be on earth what THAT happens.
Thank God Jesus is taking those who believe in and
trust Him OUT OF HERE.
Thank God we're
getting glorified, immortal, indestructible bodies.

by a bolt of lightning hitting the Dome of the Vatican's

moments on earth?

And, did I mention, JESUS???
WHAT ELSE and WHO ELSE is
there to be concerned about?
You should certainly
perform your job conscientiously and to the best of your
ability, but THE INSTANT He
appears, it won't matter.
You should certainly
love your family and friends (even your enemies) and,
hopefully, LOVE THEM ENOUGH
TO SHARE JESUS WITH THEM.
INSTANT He appears, they won't matter.
You CAN'T save someone
ALL you can do is TELL
THEM and INVITE them.
EVERYONE must choose to
RECEIVE Jesus FOR THEMSELVES.
Jesus, Jesus, and MORE JESUS,
is what EVERY Christian MUST BE FOCUSED ON.

SAINT MALACHI'S PROPHECY
We first shared
Malachi's prophecy with our readers in June 2010. I have
summarized the original three messages into one, which goes
straight to the point.
Questions have come in
regarding the length of Peter the Roman's papacy and about
whether cardinals will elect the next Pope based on
The length of Peter the Roman's
papacy is IRRELEVANT, unless
you still plan to be here during the tribulation.
We know the tribulation will last 3½ years and that
Rome is destroyed AT OR NEAR the end. So his leadership of
the RCC will be BRIEF (Daniel 7:25; 12:7).
that cardinals get to elect the next Pope, even if they
selected someone ON PURPOSE to agree with Malachi's
prophecy, THEY CANNOT cause the glorification of the Body
of Christ (Rapture), nor can they cause the tribulation to
begin, nor can they cause Rome to be destroyed, nor can
they cause Jesus to return and judge the people as Malachi
So, what does that have to do with the
price of tea in China?
Besides, Benedict is
resigning VOLUNTARILY. He has NO WAY OF KNOWING when the
Rapture, tribulation or Second Coming will take place.
Malachi has hit the nail on the head 266
times over an 800-year span of time. THAT is an AMAZING
Additionally, his prophecy dovetails PERFECTLY with
Bible prophecy in both description and TIMING.
That's why I said in yesterday's message if
all this is "mere coincidence", then IT IS THE MOTHER OF
I don't think so.
Here's all you need to know
Saint Malachi was an
Irish Catholic Bishop who lived in the 12th century.
During a trip to Rome,
he had a vision about the future Popes. He wrote a brief
description of each Pope, and his comments have turned out
to be impressively accurate.
For instance, he said
of Pope Benedict XV's papacy [1914-22] "religio
"religion depopulated", or "religion laid waste".
During his 8-year
papacy, World War I killed 20 million in Europe, Catholics
for the most part. In 1918 the pandemic known as Spanish
flu killed 50-100 million worldwide, and the Russian
Revolution in 1917 forced its vast population to live under
Malachi called Pope
#265 John Paul I  "de
the half moon". He
became Pope on August 26, 1978 when
the moon was exactly half-full. He
was born in Belluno, meaning "the
beautiful moon", a
province in Northern Italy. His name was Albino Luciani,
which is how the moon appears in the sky.
His successor, Pope
John Paul II [1978-2005] he called "de
the eclipse of the sun". John
Paul II was both
BORN during a partial solar eclipse, and his funeral took
place on April 8, 2005 during another solar eclipse.
His prophecy indicates
there will be ONLY ONE MORE POPE, then Rome will be

sheep in many tribulations. When they are finished, the
city of the 7 hills [Rome] will be destroyed, and the
formidable Judge will judge His people".
This sounds strikingly
similar to the Book of Revelation's chapters 17 and 18.
His timing also seems
to correspond unbelievably well with other Scriptures,
particularly Daniel 9:25 and Luke 21:25-36.
Was Malachi a true
prophet? I believe he was.
For one thing, he passes
the Bible test for true prophets, with flying colors:
Thus far, NONE
of his 266 descriptions has EVER been wrong [Deuteronomy
18:21,22; Numbers 12:6].
His predictions DO
NOT, in any way, shape or form contradict the Bible
[Deuteronomy 13:1-3]. They seem, rather, to line up
perfectly with Scripture.

interesting description, concerns THE PRESENT POPE.
What did he have to
say about Benedict XVI?
GLORY OF THE OLIVE
In his heretofore
astonishingly accurate prophecy, St. Malachi described the
present Pope, Benedict XVI, as "de
gloria olivae", meaning "the
glory of the olive".
According to St.
Malachi's prophecy, there will be one more, FINAL Pope,
after Benedict, whom he named "Peter the Roman", who will
lead Catholics under great tribulation, at the end of which
Rome will be destroyed.
Some had speculated
that the Pope would be from the Benedictine order, since
they have a sub-order which calls itself "Olivetans".
Ratzinger [his original name],IS
NOT FROM that order.
Others have suggested
that the "olive" stands for peace, or for Catholic
reconciliation with the Eastern Orthodox churches, or for
better relations with Israel.
But NONE of it FITS. Roman
Catholics are no closer to reconciling with the Eastern
Orthodox, nor have relations with Israel significantly
So, what could this
term "glory of the olive" mean?
In the Bible the OIL
of the olive is always associated with the anointing of
God, or His Anointed One, the Messiah [Psalm 23:5; Isaiah
61:1; Luke 4:18]. This
would point to Jesus being glorified in His Church.
delivered His teaching about the end times while sitting
with His disciples on the Mount of Olives [Matthew
24:4; Mark 13:3,4].
The Mount of Olives is
also where He will descend, with His raptured saints, at
His Second Coming [Zechariah
In Romans 11:16-24, the
olive represents the Body of Christ, spiritual Israel,
God's chosen covenant people.
comprises ALL true believers in Israel's Messiah, Jesus
Christ, who have acquired a NEW, born-again nature, whether
they be natural Jews or Gentiles [Romans 2:28,29; Ephesians
Another name for
SPIRITUAL Israel is "the Church".
In that context, "the
glory of the olive" would mean that, during Benedict's
papacy, the Church will be glorified.
The glorification of the
Church [the olive, spiritual Israel], would mean THE
The pontiff is
presently 85 years old (turns 86 on April 16, 2012), and in

right, so far.
Did Malachi prophesy
that the Rapture will happen during the papacy of Benedict
prophecies God delivered thru Jeremiah, Daniel, and Luke
which indicate it SHOULD HAPPEN this year, I'm convinced
that he did.
PETER THE ROMAN
For obvious reasons,
the most intriguing and exciting of Malachi's prophecies
are THE LAST TWO descriptions.
The present Pope,
Benedict XVI, is called the "glory of the olive", a title
that is rife with prophetic significance, as noted above.
After Pope Benedict,
the prophecy ends with the following statement:
"In the EXTREME
PERSECUTION of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit (i.e.,
as bishop) Peter the Roman, who will feed his sheep IN MANY
TRIBULATIONS: and when these things are finished, THE CITY
OF SEVEN HILLS (Rome) WILL BE DESTROYED, and the formidable
judge will judge his people, The End."
So, Pope Benedict,
according to Malachi, will either die, be killed or be
raptured (let's hope it's the latter) and will be succeeded
by this Peter.
(Hindsight being 20/20
I wish I would have said "Pope Benedict's papacy, according
to Malachi, will SOMEHOW end")...
The designation "Peter
the Roman" has stirred A LOT of controversy.
The apostle Peter is
considered by Roman Catholics to be THE FIRST Pope.
There's never been Peter
II. No Pope in the Church's long and convoluted history has
EVER taken the name Peter.
However, that's A
NOWHERE does Malachi say
that this man WILL CHOOSE Peter as his pontifical name.
In fact, Malachi
doesn't give THE ACTUAL ADOPTED NAMES of ANY of the 267
Popes; he merely provides some DESCRIPTIVE moniker. So WHY
WOULD IT BE ANY DIFFERENT with the Catholic Church's last
The designation "Peter
the Roman" should be understood to be DESCRIPTIVE just
like "of the half moon" was descriptive of John Paul I, or
"shepherd and sailor" of Pope John XXIII.
Malachi does NOT even
say that this Peter will be ELECTED Pope. He could,
therefore, be someone who becomes de
of the Roman Catholic Church after the present Pope's
demise or disappearance (or resignation).
Indeed, if the
tribulation's underway and remaining Catholics are being
persecuted, it's hard to envision cardinals having their
customary conclave to elect a new Pope.
Be that as it may, and
since we're living at the time of the end, who might this

They are Archbishop Pietro Parolin
an official with the Vatican's Roman Curia and Holy See's
nuncio (representative) to Venezuela, Tarcisio Pietro Bertone,
a cardinal and diplomat who currently serves as cardinal
Secretary of State for the Vatican and one of the few
individuals privy to the Third Secret of Fatima (see
respective pictures below), and relatively
newcomer to the College of Cardinals, Peter Turkson from
Ghana who is being touted as the "first black Pope".
So, we have two
Pietros and one Peter, or THREE "Peters"
who could, potentially, fulfill Malachi's final
That still leaves
the description "the Roman" which must have some pertinent
application to THE RIGHT candidate.
It's hard to imagine
anyone thinking of Parolin as "the Roman" other than the
fact he's a member of the Roman Curia, but so are hundreds
He's not from Rome, but was born in the
town of Schiavon, in the region of Vicenza in northeastern
The same can be said of Turkson. Other than
the rather routine facts that he served a few years, as
professor at a Catholic seminary in Rome, and being a
member of the Roman Curia, as all the other Cardinals,
nobody would associate the title "the Roman" to him.
Bertone, on the other hand, comes from the town of Romano Canavese,
in the province of Turin (where the Shroud of Turin is
kept), in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy.
So, the designation
"Peter the Roman", seems particularly apropos to him.
Cardinal Bertone, at
present, serves as the Vatican's Secretary of State. He
acts as a sort of Prime Minister. In the death or absence
of the present Pope, Bertone would doubtlessly be on the
short list for possible "new Pope" and
would have BETTER and more extensive knowledge of the
Vatican's interests and internal affairs than anyone else.
And if the College of
Cardinals, because of tribulation, persecution, or some
other reason, is
not able to carry out its duties and elect a successor, it
would make perfect sense for the CURRENT Secretary of State
to take over the leadership in an unofficial capacity.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12,
As everyone knows by
now, Pope Benedict XVI made a surprise announcement
yesterday that he would resign his position as Pope and
religious leader of this world's ONE BILLION Roman
Catholics, on February 28, 2013.
It's fair to say that NO
ONE saw this coming.
Just a few days ago I
was pondering St. Malachi's prophecy and that we should see
SOME CHANGE in the papacy fairly soon, but
NEVER IN MY WILDEST, did I imagine it would be his
Papal resignation is
an EXTREMELY RARE event.
The most recent
resignation was Pope Gregory XII's which
took place in 1415, 598 years ago.
To put that into some
sort of historical perspective, it took place 77
years BEFORE Columbus discovered the American Continent, 102
years BEFORE the Reformation, and 361
years BEFORE the United States became a nation.
To my knowledge, papal
resignation has happened ONLY FOUR TIMES in Catholic
history and usually to settle major rivalries within RCC
Such was NOT the case
Benedict's papacy is
not being disputed or challenged by anyone.
The Pope, who is about
to turn 86 on April 16, cited not
having the mental and physical strength to
carry out the demands of the office as THE REASON for
To say that his
announcement has sent shockwaves throughout the Catholic
community worldwide would be an understatement.
Personally, I was
awed at God's perfect and amazing timing.
Many who have read our
messages on Saint Malachi's prophecy regarding the Popes
have asked me to comment.
If you HAVEN'T read
them, they are found on
this page, right under this daily message and below the
Second Coming 2016 teaching (scroll
down FOR A BIT).
I am on record stating
that I personally believe Malachi
WAS a true prophet of God.
I'm also on record
saying that we
DO NOT base doctrine on Malachi's prophecy, but ON THE
WRITTEN, INSPIRED, INFALLIBLE Word of God.

has been SPOT ON with every one of his 266 prophecies so

Considering that it's
been announced that a successor to Benedict would be
appointed before Easter (mid to late March, since
Resurrection Day falls this year on Sunday, March 31).
And considering that Malachi
predicted that, after the present Pope, there would be ONLY
ONE MORE leader of the Roman Catholic Church, who would
lead the Church in the MIDST OF "MANY TRIBULATIONS" after
which Rome would be destroyed... (Revelation
17:18, entire 17-18 chapters).

CAIN AND ABEL
We've all heard the
silly, old joke: "why couldn't Cain please God? Answer: He
just wasn't Abel".
However, there's a
little more to Cain than meets the eye.
There's this false
teaching going around that Cain was the offspring of Satan
having sexual intercourse with Eve.
That teaching IS
Proponents of that
false doctrine base it on 1 John 3:12 which says:
"Not as Cain, WHO
WAS OF THAT WICKED ONE,
and slew his brother".
There's just ONE TINY
PROBLEM with that theory:
Genesis 4:1 says CLEAR
KNEW Eve his wife; AND SHE CONCEIVED, and GAVE BIRTH TO Cain,
and said, I
have gotten a man from the LORD".
Therefore, either God
CONTRADICTED HIMSELF AND LIED (perish the idea) or
that CANNOT POSSIBLY BE the meaning of 1 John 3:12.
This just highlights
THE ERROR of those who pick
ONE verse from
the Bible which suits their religious agenda and
DELIBERATELY IGNORE what the REST OF the Bible has to say
about a certain topic.
That not only
constitutes shoddy scholarship, it is TOTALLY
The physical birth of
Cain was unquestionably due to Adam and Eve having sexual

Of course not!
There's NO QUESTION
that Cain was "of that wicked one" (Satan), in the sense
that, like HIS SPIRITUAL FATHER, he
had A REBELLIOUS HEART toward God, as his attitude and
ACTIONS plainly DEMONSTRATED.

that he was the SPIRITUAL son of Satan.
Was Cain angry ONLY
because of God not being pleased with his offering?
Envy that Abel was
accepted and he was rejected was definitely part of the
equation, but I submit to you, based on Scripture, that THERE'S
EVEN A LITTLE MORE TO IT THAN THAT:
Satan used Cain's
rebellious heart, filling it with hatred and anger toward
Abel which led to the MURDER of his brother, because
he was TERRIFIED that Abel might be the Seed that God had
promised to bring through the woman, which would CRUSH HIS
EVIL HEAD (Genesis
Satan played Cain for
the fool that he was.

done, the EMOTIONS (anger and hatred) that filled Cain's
heart were mere manipulative tools which Satan used to
carry out HIS REAL AGENDA:

that he might be the Son of God.

tradition in both Judaism and Christianity that Jesus
would return in the 6th Millennium after
re-Creation. We're it.
This tradition is
not without biblical basis,
since the Lord re-created the earth in SIX days and 2 Peter
3:8 tells us with the Lord "a
day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years is as a
He also RESTED
on the 7th day, which would correspond to the 7th
Millennium, which will be that 1,000-year period of REST,
restoration and world peace when Jesus will establish His
Millennial Kingdom on earth,
as it is in heaven.
2. It would be downright
IMPOSSIBLE for some of the prophecies in Revelation, the
Gospels, Zechariah and Daniel to be fulfilled UNLESS
Israel had been reborn as a national entity, and UNLESS
Jews controlled Jerusalem.
Such things didn't exist for nearly 2,000 years, and didn't
materialize ‘til 1948 and 1967, respectively.
Luke 21:24-36 unquestionably tells us that the
generation that sees Jerusalem no longer trampled by
gentiles "will NOT pass away" without Jesus coming in the
clouds "with power and great glory".
Jerusalem was trampled, NON-STOP, by gentiles for 2,030
hasn't been trampled since June 7, 1967.
Without a question, we
ARE that generation.
4. Daniel 9:25 says there must be a 7-week [49-year
period] FROM the
word to return and build Old Testament Jerusalem to
Messiah Prince. That
happened, unequivocally, in 1967.
5. One of the conditions for our "gathering
together unto Him", as per 2 Thessalonians 2:3 is the
unveiling [revelation] of the Antichrist.
That has happened. We can now PROVE his identity,
undisputedly, with the Bible.
6. Daniel prophesied
that at the time of the end "many would go to and fro and
knowledge would be increased". What better description of
cyberspace could there be? [Keep in mind that was written 2,500
Computer technology makes it possible for us to go
"to and fro" throughout the world at the click of a mouse.
7. The Book of Daniel also states that its prophecies
WOULD REMAIN SEALED [not understood] UNTIL "the time of the
The fact we understand most of them today is
PROOF POSITIVE that the Book is no longer sealed and,
prophesied "time of the end" is here.
We cannot limit the Word
There are certain aspects of it which apply to
However, Daniel, Revelation and other apocalyptic
writings were addressed IN PARTICULAR to ONE generation,
and that's us.
There's never been a generation that
saw millions of people suddenly and simultaneously vanish,
a resurrected Antichrist emerge from the bottomless pit, or
people receiving a mark in their hands or foreheads in
order to buy or sell, the Euphrates drying up, the death of
ONE THIRD of mankind, the sea and all the water turn to
blood, major cities in the world turning into rubble, or
the Anti-Christ massing armies at Armageddon trying to
PREVENT the return of the Christ.
That privilege or
misfortune (depending on where we stand spiritually) has
been reserved for THIS generation.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6,
When Jesus made A NEW
Covenant or Testament with His followers, He rendered the
Old Testament null and void with regards to Salvation and
REPLACED IT WITH the New and
INFINITELY BETTER Testament.
Much of the confusion
that exists among believers and unbelievers alike is that 99%
of them DON’T REALIZE that Jesus said certain things PRIOR
TO the Crucifixion and Resurrection, WHILE
THE OLD TESTAMENT WAS
STILL IN FORCE.
MUCH OF THAT CHANGED
when He rose from the dead and the New Covenant REPLACED
the Old one.
For instance, in the
Sermon on the Mount where He said “And if your right eye
causes you to offend, pluck it out, and cast it from you:
for it is better for you that one of your members should
perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into
hell” (Matthew 5:29).
For starters, Jesus was
speaking FIGURATIVELY, NOT literally.
Had He meant that
LITERALLY, all His disciples would have been one-eyed.
Israelites were STILL
under the Old Covenant, hence
under the law, NOT under Grace (Romans
Jesus was merely
conveying TO WHAT LENGTHS people should go in trying to
avoid sin WHILE THE OLD TESTAMENT was still IN EFFECT.
(Jesus) HAD NOT YET PAID FOR those sins…
ONCE He PAID FOR THEM on
the cross, EVERYTHING
That’s when God’s
GRACE manifested in FULL FORCE, and
when the New Testament He had promised all along, KICKED IN
FOREVER the Old Testament with

people obtained ONLY
TEMPORARY “justification” by
trying to obey the law, including the 10 Commandments, and
by offering the blood of innocent animals ON A DAILY BASIS.
believers obtain ETERNAL

FULFILLED THE LAW, AND EVERY COMMANDMENT EVER GIVEN BY GOD,
on behalf of all other humans.
That is WHY we CANNOT

By the way, when you
read THE LAW, including the 10 Commandments, and what
natural Israelites had to live under -
although IT NO LONGER APPLIES TO US with regards to
justification - it should make us EXTREMELY
APPRECIATIVE AND THANKFUL to our Lord to see WHAT HE
DELIVERED US FROM.
FREED US FROM.
Those poor Israelites
had to "comply" with 613 commandments that
were IMPOSSIBLE to keep!
Nobody EVER kept them.
Nobody EVER kept even the

Why do you think the
children of Israel in the OLD Testament HAD TO OFFER ANIMAL
SACRIFICES TWICE A DAY, EVERY SINGLE DAY?
Because THEY COULDN'T
KEEP the law or the 10 Commandments!
And - hypothetically
speaking - even IF THEY HAD kept them, they
COULDN'T REGENERATE THEIR DEAD SPIRITS!!!
Jesus (glory to Him
eternally) DID BOTH.

a human, on behalf of ALL humans, He
then OFFERED HIMSELF and His sacred Blood as

That is WHY it is SO WRONG to
seek SALVATION UNDER the OLD Testament.
Those who do, are
REJECTING Jesus and the NEW Testament, WHICH IS THE

its own Super Bowl?
The Super Bowls I'm
talking about will come from God, not man.
