Sometimes, I lose track of religious holidays and Easter is one of those holidays held on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the vernal equinox.

It is not like Christmas where you can always count on the date.

This year, Easter will fall on April 1st which is also the day set aside for Fools or All Fools Day.

Unfortunately, the combining of both days has now created a paradox of sorts and it certainly is sending a shockwave throughout the Christian world. The fools day and the sacred holiday is now being marred by misdirection as Pope Francis is now saying that Hell does not exist and that condemned souls just “disappear.”


This is a denial of the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.

This is throwing fuel to the notion that hell and evil are merely constructs and all that we believe has been a psychological control mechanism for over 2000 years.

Controversy has always followed the Pontiff and there have been many biblical and prophetic scholars who have said that Pope Francis will be the last Pope and that he is the one that was foretold in the Prophecies of the Popes to be a false prophet.

Francis took the position as the cardinal of Rome when Pope Benedict XVI resigned on February 28th 2013.

This was a shock to the Christian world.

The Catholic Cardinals that met to vote on the new Pope came to their decision at a time where mystical numbers and moon phases indicated that something sinister may have been happening. This most assuredly would have sent prophecy hopefuls spinning yarns of conspiracy theories about the possible last pope as foretold by St. Malachy in the prophecies of the last pope, Petrus Romanus.

When the Pope stepped forward on the balcony of St. Peter’s square, there was a solemn quiet only for a moment. Who was this man who stood before them? What was his name and was he somehow linked to any of the prophecies of Malachy?

All of the speculation about the new pope was fueled by an old prophecy made by Saint Malachy in 1139. The prophecy is the result of a vision an Irish Saint Malachy had and his list of 112 short Latin couplets which are said to describe each of the Roman Catholic popes along with a few anti-popes, beginning with Pope Celestine II, elected in 1143 and concluding with current Pope Benedict XVI’s successor, a pope described in the prophecy as “Peter the Roman”, whose pontificate will end in the destruction of the city of Rome. The prophecy was somehow lost and was rediscovered discovered in 1590.

There is, however, something that I am sure was overlooked by most of those who choose to fit prophecy into the present day and that is another Catholic prophecy that states that there will be a time in the lineage of the Popes where both the White Pope and Black Pope (Meaning a Jesuit Pope) die within a short time of each other thus paving the way for a “GREAT AND TERRIBLE JUDGE” to unite all the churches under an ecumenical umbrella.

This could be the reason why one version of Malachy’s prophecy skips the 111th pope and jumps to the 112th – the 111th pope never really gets the chance to live out his reign as pope. It is speculated that he is removed from the throne and then is replaced by a Jesuit or Black Pope. The Pope no longer reigns as pontiff and dies while under the care of the Vatican and soon after the Black Pope Petrus Romanus dies and is replaced with a “judge” this will be a signal that the antichrist is in power.

This indicates a struggle or schism happens in the Vatican where a Pope who is elected does not get support from the curia and that a secret or covert group is running the church with the pontiff as puppet, with the pope saying there is no hell – the thought is being rekindled — is the throne of the Papacy empty and is the Pontiff who claims to be the Bishop of Rome a fraud?

There is a prophecy of St. Francis of Assisi that speaks of a future Pope with his name.

“There will be an uncanonically elected Pope who will cause a great schism, there will be diverse thoughts preached which will cause many, even those in the different orders to doubt, yea, even agree with those heretics which will cause my Order to divide, then will there be such universal dissensions and persecutions that if those days were not shortened even the elect would be lost.”

A 13th century prophecy that speaks of the “black pope” also says that he will be a “great and mighty” pope with a secret. It is during his short reign that a known Monarch dies.

In yet another chilling synchronicity, Saint Hildegard wrote in 1129 that the time of the lineage of popes leading to the final Pontiff would happen in a time where the world faces famine, earthquakes, strange weather and extraterrestrial dangers.

This final Pontiff would be a false prophet – that would begin the apostasy before the second coming of Jesus Christ.

The Pope’s views on Hell were recently shared with a friend who is an atheist named Eugenio Scalfari.

The interview between Scalfari and the Pope was published March 28, 2018 in La Repubblica. The relevant section on Hell was translated by the highly-respected web log, Rorate Caeli.

The interview is headlined, “The Pope: It is an honor to be called revolutionary.”

Scalfari says to the Pope, “Your Holiness, in our previous meeting you told me that our species will disappear in a certain moment and that God, still out of his creative force, will create new species. You have never spoken to me about the souls who died in sin and will go to hell to suffer it for eternity. You have however spoken to me of good souls, admitted to the contemplation of God. But what about bad souls? Where are they punished?”

Pope Francis says,”They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, ‘eternal fire.’ The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs.”

Now we can argue biblical and religious dogma says that what the Pope is saying is blasphemy, but the point is whether or not this Pope is fulfilling the prophecy of being a false prophet or a fallen Vicar of Christ.

It can be argued that Pope Francis has abandoned many of the tenants of the church in favor of an all encompassing faith that is inclusive. Some are saying this is blasphemy and that a satanic influence has its grip on the papacy.

Francis is also being criticized for reintroducing the “bent cross” as he uses it while he officiates. There are many people that see the bent cross pastoral staff as a broken cross and a symbol that a satanic power has once again infiltrated the church hierarchy.

The writhing body of the dying Christ has always been a horrific and the more distorted and horrific the image becomes the more people tend to think that it is a satanic reminder of a dead savior and does nothing to promote Jesus as a redeemer and a bulwark against the plague of evil.

Easter is a time of worship of the resurrected Christ and focus on the dying Christ has always been a controversial issue between evangelical and reformed churches against the Catholic Church.

It is important to point out that it seems that all of the old symbols, vestments and rituals are losing their power, or they are being seen as ineffective weapons in the war against evil.

This poses a troubling question – are these actions of the Pope being seen as the falling away and does this mean the second coming of Christ is due?

If their Savior is due to arrive anytime soon then it’s time to look in the Bible and realize that before any Second coming, there has to be a first helping of evil that will eventually find itself within the very organization of most Christian churches.

The cults and the vigilant are getting the wake up call. After waiting with baited breath for the return of a messiah the ever faithful are now losing faith, and are changing their minds about God in the 21st century.

People now seem fickle in their beliefs and some would say that there is a crisis in religion today brought on by higher than normal expectations. Some claim that the religious are hypocrites.

There are those who believe in old traditions, and in old dogma. When these traditions are bastardized they tend to question the validity of the new doctrines.

They begin to analyze and micromanage the faith until strange conclusions can be drawn. In the case of the Catholic Church we are beginning to hear about the possibility that a few of the flock are beginning to wonder if there is a Satanic conspiracy within the body of the church.

As far back as 1996, there were people who openly declared that Pope John Paul II was indeed an antichrist.

The first of which was Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo. His allegations of Satanism in the Vatican rocked headlines and resulted in his suspension after it was discovered that he was using unorthodox healing methods and doing exorcisms in Africa.

Milingo was candidly telling the press that there were priests and bishops who were involved with satanic activity. However his position as an archbishop kept him from accusing anyone else who may have had a higher authority such as cardinals and even the Pope himself. Milingo said that he did not rule out the possibility that even in the higher ranks there were members that could very well be agents of Satan.

The idea of a demonic cabal within the Catholic faith had already solidified the opinions of those who felt that the new relations given during Vatican II were an attempt to bring down the original doctrines of the Catholic faith.

A movement sprang from these allegations of a diabolical threat to the papacy. It is known as Sedevacantism. The Sedevacantists are of the belief that the Pope is not leading the church, but destroying the church.


The word, Sedevacant is a word derived from Latin for vacant throne or seat. That the chair of St. Peter is empty and no one worthy is able to occupy that position.

This among other things has become the church’s biggest crisis. Sedevacantists are always called schismatic Catholics since they refuse to follow the Pope’s teachings because of their belief that the Pope today is indeed a heretic.

This would make the spiritual leader of nearly one fifth of the world’s Christian population a false prophet and the fulfillment of apocalyptic prophecy.

Sedevacantists usually say that Pope Pius XII was the last true Pope, because after his papacy the church’s Vatican Council II council met. They believe that Vatican II was a blasphemy.

Therefore, they conclude that the Popes who started and finished the Vatican II Council, John XXIII and Paul VI respectively, were also false Popes. It was soon after the Vatican II council met and the Popes that subsequently reigned after had died under mysterious circumstances.

History points to Pope John Paul I who died mysteriously after only 33 days in office.

It was about that time that a great Masonic conspiracy theory was taking hold in the Vatican.

This was giving Sedevacantism more proof to show that the church was dovetailing into the abyss. After Vatican II, a ban was lifted that allowed Catholics to become Freemasons. There was rumored to be over 100 clerics who were Freemasons that belonged to the Italian P2 Lodge, which lent more circumstantial evidence that a diabolical intelligence cabal was infiltrating the church.

Albino Luciani (Pope John Paul I) condemned the P2 Lodge and it was theorized that the Masonic lodge and its ties to the hierarchy would have been threatened if his Papacy were to continue. John Paul I ordered an investigation into the scandalous rumors of a conspiracy in the ranks. He then asked his secretary of state, Cardinal Jean Villot to head the investigation.

John Paul I presented Cardinal Villot with a list of people who needed to resign from their posts or be reassigned to other posts. All the people on the list were suspected to be members of the Freemason’s group “P2.”

The result of correction would show a weakness or perhaps a threat to the Vatican power structure perhaps adding more fuel to the theory that something evil had infiltrated the church.

After all of the scandal John Paul I was found dead in his bed on September 29, 1978. His death had all of the tenants of a true mystery found in a New York Times best seller. In the press inquiry about the untimely death of the Pope, Cardinal Villot issued false statements to the press about the circumstances surrounding the death. There was a rumor that the new Pope had been murdered in order to silence him. Any evidence pointing to murder had been removed by Villot and the Pope’s body was immediately embalmed without an autopsy to show the cause of death.

John Paul II replaced John Paul I. None of John Paul I’s instructions to Cardinal Villot before his death were carried out.

It was later that there were many mysterious deaths surrounding the scandal. From Journalist to Judges I that led to many religious conspiracy theories.

The Sedevacantists are basically insinuating as are many fundamental Christian sects that Pope Francis is preaching Marxists doctrine and that he is conditioning the church into participating in what is called the New World order and that the church is witnessing what has been predicted in the bible as the great Apostasy.

From the Apostle Paul to John Paul II, from Augustine to Calvin, Christians have debated atonement and judgment for nearly 2,000 years. It is also true that the Christian tradition since the first church has insisted that history is tragic for those who do not believe in Jesus; that hell is, for them, forever; and that love, in the end, will envelop those who profess Jesus as Lord, and they — and they alone — will be reconciled to God.

The dominant view of the righteous in heaven and the damned in hell owes more to the an artist depiction from Michelangelo to Dante to Blake, than it does to history — our vision of the burning fires and different levels of hell are in some respects constructs, but the reality of what lies after death is a mystery.

It is a mystery that the Bible confirms as both paradise for the reverent and desolation and sulfur for the profane.

Meanwhile, the Vatican is rushing to put out the flames of an incendiary quote by their Pope.

The Vatican issued a statement after the comments spread like wildfire on social media, saying the pope never granted the interview with Scalfari and the story was “the result of (the reporter’s) reconstruction,” not a “faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.”

So the Vatican is saying that you shouldn’t trust the words of an atheist, even though many Christians are saying that perhaps the members of Catholic hierarchy should not be apologists for a heretic.
