Pope Benedict dies: Are We Reaching the End of Time?

In 1595, a Benedictine monk named Arnold de Wyon published  Lignum Vitae – in which he claimed to have “discovered The Prophecy of the Popes,” which were originally written by St. Malachy, the Archbishop of Armagh in 1143. In 1871, Abbé Cucherat, in his book The Prophecies of the Succession of the Popes , tells us that in 1139 Malachy was “summoned to Rome Pope Innocent II to receive two wool palliums for the metropolitan sees of Armagh and Cashel.”

While in Rome, Malachy is said to have experienced a “vision of future popes,” which he recorded as a sequence of cryptic phrases describing their personality traits. St. Malachy allegedly gave his manuscript to Innocent II and the document remained unknown in the Roman Archives until its discovery in 1590.

Examining the Papal Prophecy

The first pope listed after St. Peter was Ex caſtro Tiberis, who is noted as having lived in a “castle on the Tiber.” Regarding the final Pope, de Wyon claimed that Malachy wrote an apocalyptic statement which translates from Latin as:

“In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit. [sic] Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.”

When the text was discovered in 1595 it caused great intrigue and carried an air of legitimacy because so many of Malachy’s descriptions matched those of previous Popes. To many, the resignation of Benedict XVI in 2013 or the day he died 31/12/2022 indicated the beginning of the End of Days – also as prophesied.

However, not a shred of tangible evidence exists to associate Malachy with the prophecy, and the “original document” that de Wyon claimed to have “found” in the Vatican Secret Archives has never been seen by anyone else, ever. Soon after its discovery, many Catholic scholars deemed it as a contemporary forgery, however many others have continued to believe in the document’s authenticity.

Skeptics argue that historically when people had prophetic visions they told a lot of people, but Malachy apparently didn’t mention his vision to a soul, nor did his biographer, St. Bernard of Clairvaux; who documented several of Malachy’s other alleged miracles. And, depending on how you interpret the prophecy, Benedict XVI is not the 111th pope! Ten antipopes are listed among the “112 Popes” – so it is argued that Benedict XVI was the 101st pope.

The Papal Prophecy – Real or Forgery?

Among the historians who maintained that the prophecies were a late 16th‑century forgery, Spanish monk and scholar Benito Jerónimo Feijóo y Montenegro wrote Teatro Crítico Universal  between 1724–1739. In an entry entitled ‘Purported prophecies’ he observed a “high level of accuracy in the descriptions of the popes until the date they were published” … then, a “high level of inaccuracy after the publication date.” Friar Benito Jerónimo Feijóo y Montenegro was a Spanish monk and scholar who led the Age of Enlightenment in Spain and debunked myths and superstitions. This observation convinced him the prophecy was “created just before its publication.”

Having established that the prophecy was most probably a hoax, why were the prophecies created in the first place? A theory was forward by a 17th-century French priest Louis Moréri in his encyclopedia Le Grand Dictionnaire historique which suggested “supporters of Cardinal Girolamo Simoncelli created them in a bid to support his bid to become pope in the 1590s.” His evidence was in that the prophecies predicted the pope that would follow Urban VII was “Ex antiquitate Urbis” (“from the old city”), and Simoncelli was from Orvieto, which in Latin is Urbevetanum “old city” (Miller, 1981).

Writing extensively about the prophecy being a forgery, M. J. O’Brien, a Catholic priest who authored an 1880 monograph on the prophecies said: “These prophecies have served no purpose. They are absolutely meaningless. The Latin is bad. It is impossible to attribute such absurd triflings … to any holy source. Those who have written in defence of the prophecy have brought forward scarcely an argument in their favour. Their attempts at explaining the prophecies after 1590 are, I say with all respect, the sorriest trifling” (O’Brien, 1880).

What Does the Popes Prophecy Say of Today and Tomorrow?

If the list of descriptions is matched directly to a list of historic popes since its publication, Benedict XVI (2005–13) corresponds to the second last noted pope, described as “Gloria olivae” (the glory of the olive). 

And the final prophecy predicts the Apocalypse: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman [as bishop], who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations (COVID-19, War in Ukraine, coming war between Israel and Iran) and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.”

Day of reckoning

Last Judgment – Judgement Day

The Last Judgment or The Day of the Lord is part of the eschatological world view of the Abrahamic religions and in the Frashokereti of Zoroastrianism. Some Christian denominations consider the Second Coming of Christ to be the final and infinite judgment by God of the people in every nation resulting in the approval of some and the penalizing of others. The concept is found in all the Canonical gospels, particularly the Gospel of Matthew. Christian Futurists believe it will take place after the Resurrection of the Dead and the Second Coming of Christ while Full Preterists believe it has already occurred. The Last Judgment has inspired numerous artistic depictions.


The doctrine and iconographic depiction of the “Last Judgment” are drawn from many passages from the apocalyptic sections of the Bible.

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. (Rev 20:11–12)


According to Islamic tradition, Yawm al-Qiyāmah (Arabic: يوم القيامة‎ “the Day of Resurrection”) or Yawm ad-Din (Arabic: يوم الدين‎ “the Day of Judgment”) is believed to be God’s (Allāh) final assessment of humanity. The sequence of events (according to the most commonly held belief) is the annihilation of all creatures, resurrection of the body, and the judgment of all sentient creatures. It is a time where everyone would be shown his or her deeds and actions with justice.


In Judaism, beliefs vary about a last day of judgment for all mankind. Some rabbis hold that there will be such a day following the resurrection of the dead. Others hold that this accounting and judgment happens when one dies. Still others hold that the last judgment only applies to the gentiles and not the Jewish people.

Bahai Faith

The Bab and Baha’u’llah taught that there is one unfolding religion of one God and that once in about every 1000 years a new messenger prophet, Rasul al-Nabii, or as Bahais call them, Manifestation of God, comes to mankind to renew the Kingdom of God on earth and establish a new Covenant between humanity and God. Each time a new Manifestation of God comes it is considered the Day of Judgement, Day of Resurrection, or ‘the Last Hour'[57] for the believers and unbelievers of the previous Manifestation of God. The Bab told of the judgment:

“There shall be no resurrection of the day, in the sense of the coming forth from the physical graves. Rather, the resurrection of all shall occur (in the form of) those that are living in that age. If they belong to paradise, they shall be believers, if to hell, they shall be unbelievers.

There is no denying that upon the Day of Resurrection, each and every thing shall be raised to life before God, may he be praised and glorified. For God shall originate that creation and then cause it to return. He has decreed the creation of all things, and he shall raise them to life again. God is powerful over all things.”

Remember the Prophecy of the “Rome Earthquake”? On may 11th 2011 a 5,5 Magnitude Earthquake happened in Spain, on this day there was an “almost” so not perfect alignment between Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and Earth. Also the March 11th Japan earthquake moved the axes of the planet, just like the large quake in Haiti did … where would the spain quake have taken place if this didn’t happen ? I got this from a reader of Alamongordo.com, great thinking dude !

2011 JUN 17

Perfect Alignment between Elenin, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter on the outside. Keep an eye on Mercury and Venus for special happenings.

2011 JUN 25

ELENIN enters the orbit of Mars ! At this moment Elenin is apprx 166.948.972 miles or 268.678.326 kilometers from Earth !

2011 JUL 5

Perfect Alignment between Elenin, Mercury and the Sun. We should keep an eye on Mercury, things could start moving there !

2011 JUL 18- AUG 1

During this period the Sun is in between Elenin and Jupiter, we could have large Solarflares at this time because the powers of Elenin/Jupiter.

2011 Aug 3

ELENIN enters the orbit of our planet Earth ! At this moment Elenin is apprx  138 411 484 miles or 222.751.691 kilometers from Earth ! At the same time and in the same area Comet 99942 Apophis (2004 MN4) enters the Earth’s orbit !

2011 AUG 15

Alignment between Earth, Mercury and the Sun just after the Full Moon on August 13th 2011, there is no alignment with Elenin but still we should watch this date for a possible 6,0 or higher magnitude Earthquake !

2011 AUG 18

Closest approche Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova at 0,0766 AU ! This close approach will happen during the alignment between Earth, Mercury, Venus and the Sun so keep an eye on August 18th 2011 (8-8-11). Again ELENIN is not involved but by this time ELENIN’s gravity could effect the 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova comet and the Alignment between Earth, Venus, the Sun and Mercury could trigger a +6 Magnitude quake somewhere on the planet. Still i think the fun will start in September 2011…

2011 AUG 21

ELENIN enters the orbit of Venus ! At this moment Elenin is apprx 111.361.288 miles or 179.218.620 kilometers from Earth. On this date there is an Alignment between Elenin, Mercury and Jupiter again.

2011 AUG 28

Alignment between Elenin, The Sun and Mars. There could be Solarflares again.

2011 SEP 6

ELENIN enters the orbit of Mercury ! At this moment Elenin is apprx 77.525.304 miles or 124.738.214 kilometers from Earth.

2011 SEP 11

On 9/11 Elenin will make it’s closest approach to the SUN, the distance between Elenin and the Sun at this time is apprx 44.804.792 miles or 72.090.910 kilometers. This closest approach happens on the same day of the 9/11 attack – exactly 10 Years ago !

2011 SEP 12

The last Full Moon before Elenin will align with earth several times, enjoy it because it may be your last Full Moon !

2011 SEP 16

First Alignment of Elenin since the March 11, 2011 Alignment between Earth-Sun and Elenin that triggered the Massive 9,0 Japan EarthQuake. This one is an Alignment between Earth – Elenin and Saturn. The Alignment triggered a 7,3 Magnitude EarthQuake in Fiji and 3 other +6 Magnitude Quakes in Japan, a 6,2 New Zealand Quake and a 6,1 Cuba Earthquake that was downgraded to a 5,2.

2011 SEP 18

Alignment between Earth – Elenin and Saturn triggers a 6,9 EarthQuake in India/Nepal and Tibet.

2011 SEP 26-27&28

The TRANSIT of ELENIN – Elenin will pass between the Earth and the Sun for 3 days, this could be the “Three days of Darkness” in the Bible !

2011 SEP 27

Perfect Alignment Elenin, Earth and Sun, ELENIN will be in between the Earth and the Sun !!! This is the same alignment as the one that triggered the Japan Earthquake on March 11 2011, only this time ELENIN is much closer to Earth than in March during the Japan Quake !!! So the First of Several massive earthquakes will happen around or on September 25th 2011. By this time, if ELENIN is the long-awaited NIBIRU or PLANET X we will have seen signs already, the changing magnetic field could kill millions of animals like fish and birds. Note that this is the FIRST TIME that ELENIN is in between the Earth and Sun when an alignment takes place !!! At this moment the distance between ELENIN and the EARTH is 38.297.872 miles or just 61.621.276 kilometers.

2011 SEP 26-27

Maybe an even worse but not “perfect” alignment between Elenin, Earth, Sun AND Mercury this time, the same as on March 11th 2011 and Sep 24th only Mercury is in the picture to, Elenin is at its closest point to earth yet. This alignment could trigger the largest Earthquake in the history of mankind !!! Remember the Bible talking about a large earthquake moving mountains and stuff … this could be it if “it” wasn’t 2 days ago. The distance between ELENIN and the EARTH : 35.416.236 miles or 56.984.723 kilometers.

ELENIN alignments vs EarthQuakes still to come !

2011 OCT 12 – OCT 19

The 3th Alignment : Elenin, Earth and Mars align with Elenin for the first time ever IN BETWEEN Earth and Mars + this allignment will happen during a Full Moon !!! On October 12th 2011 the comet/astroid 1036 GANYMED makes it’s closest approach to Earth !!! At this date there is also a second alignmend involving the Earth, Jupiter and Venus !

2011 OCT 17

Closest approach to Earth of ELENIN : 0,232 AU that’s 21.565.792 miles or 34.569.964 kilometers, if NASA isn’t telling us a lie about these distances … Also on OCT 17th there is an alignment between the Earth, Jupiter and Mercury !

2011 OCT 28

Alignment Earth, Mercury and Venus together with again a second alignment at the same time between Earth, Sun and Jupiter (alignment untill 1-11-11) !

2011 NOV 09

Closest approach of 2005 YU55 (0,0023 AU) : This Astroid will pass between Earth and the Moon (Distance Earth-Moon = 0.00257 AU). This Astroid could hit the moon, normally it will pass the moon at (0,00027 AU) ! This is a very important time period, the 2005 YU55 comet passes earth at just 2.137.988 miles or 3.427.194 kilometers, but even more important, this comet will “pass” our moon at just 25.098 miles or 40.232 kilometers, thats the distance of just one time around the earth ! If ELENIN has a powerfull field it could push 2005 YU55 out of it’s “normal route” and closer to the moon. If the moon is hit by this 400 meter diameter rock, disaster will also hit earth with tidalwaves and more !

REVELATION 9:11 – And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon !

2011 NOV 09

Astroid 1036 Ganymed in the Area

2011 NOV 09

Also in the Neighborhoud : 1996 FG3 Astroid !

2011 NOV 10

Full Moon !

2011 NOV 11

Perfect Alignment Elenin, Earth, Mercury and Venus. During this alignment the Earth will also pass the route of Elenin so when Elenin has a tail with Debris, all the rocks will hit Earth and it could be raining Fire as the Bible tells us !!! By the way, this stuff is all going to happen when the date is 11-11-11 isn’t that cool !!!

REVELATION 11:11 – And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. (3 1/2 Days – <9-10-11 November>)

Note : Comet Elenin passes in the same vicinity at exactly the same time, what are the odds ?

Do they get close enough in their projected paths to interact and cause a change in known trajectory? I know trajectory calcs are still being worked on for the comet (being it is still in the Asteroid Belt) ….but what are the odds of these two space bodies meeting up like this…

2011 NOV 23 – NOV 28

Perfect Alignment between Sun – Earth and ELENIN !

2011 NOV 25

Closest approach of Astroid 1996 FG3 to earth at 0,101 AU – that’s 9.338.556 miles or 15.049.855 kilometers !

The End Times and the Mahdi


“The End Times (or the Last Days) may not be a familiar concept to many people. Therefore, we first give a brief explanation of it. The End Times means ‘the last era.’ According to Islamic literature, it is a period of time that is close to Doomsday.

The signs in the Qur’an and the extensive references to the End Times provided by the Hadith literature brings us to a very important conclusion. Verses and hadiths indicate that there are two phases of the End Times. The first phase is a period when all people will suffer material and spiritual problems. Following this, Earth will enter upon a period of salvation called the ‘Golden Age,’ which is characterized by bounty and blessings due to the prevalence of true religion. With the end of the Golden Age, there will be a rapid social collapse and people will begin to wait for Doomsday.

In this book, we examine the End Times in the light of verses and hadiths. It is clear that the signs in question have now started to appear one after another, just as described in these references. The advent of these signs heralded fourteen centuries ago are great occurrences that increase believers’ faith in and loyalty to Allah. It is surely not a coincidence that, in such a short period of time, all of these signs appeared one after another. These signs are good news to Allah’s servants.

The account of events related in the following pages are prepared according to the guidance of the verse, ‘Say: ‘Praise be to Allah. He will show you His Signs, and you will recognize them. Your Lord is not unaware of what you do” (Surat an-Naml: 93). Another issue we need to stress here is that Allah knows the best of everything. As is in every other subject, we have no knowledge other than that about which He informs us.

The End Times and the Mahdi.

The signs of the Last Day in the Qur’an :

  • The Hour is near Allah reveals in the Qur’an that there can be no doubt that the Last Day is near.And the Hour is coming without any doubt … (Surat al-Hajj: 7)
  • We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth. The Hour is certainly coming. (Surat al-Hijr: 85)
  • There may be some who think that the message of the Qur’an concerning the Last Day was revealed more that 1400 years ago and that this is a long time compared to the length of a human life. But here, it is a question of the end of the world, the sun and the stars, in short, of the universe. When we consider that the universe is billions of years old, fourteen centuries is a very short period of time. . . .

The signs described by the Prophet (saas) are occurring one after the other.

In the hadiths that have come down to us from the Prophet (saas), news is given concerning the End Times and the Golden Age of Islam. When we compare these signs with the events that are taking place in our time, we can see many indications that we are living through the End Times and which also herald the arrival of the Golden Age of Islam. The hadiths used in the coming sections of this book contain such information given by the Prophet (saas) in this regard.At this point, there may arise some doubt in the reader in regards to the truth and authenticity of these hadiths about the end. There is a method to distinguish those that are true from those that are false. As we know, hadiths about the Doomsday relate to events that are to take place in the future.

For this reason, when a hadith comes true in the course of time, all doubt as to the source of the words is removed. Several Islamic scholars who conducted research on the subject of the End Times and of the signs of the Last Day have used this criterion. An expert on the subject, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi, said that the fact that the hadiths concerning the End Times correspond to events observed in our day shows the truth of the hadiths.

Some of the signs related in the hadiths were observable in some part of the world in any period during the 1400 year history of Islam, but that would not have proven that that period was the the End Times. For a certain period to be called the End Times, all the signs of the Last Day must be observed to be occurrence in that same period. This is expressed in a hadith:

The End Times and the Mahdi

Signs following one another like the pieces of a necklace falling one after the other when its string is cut. (Tirmidhi)In the hadiths, the beginning of the End Times is described as when discord grows, and war and conflict are on the increase, when there is chaos and moral degeneration rears its head and people turn away from the morality of religion. At the time in question, natural disasters will occur all over the world, poverty will reach unseen levels, there will be a large increase in the crime rate, and murder and brutality everywhere. Yet this will be only the first stage. During the second phase, Allah will rescue mankind from this chaos and replace it with a blessed existence full of plenty, peace and security.”

The End Times and the Mahdi, are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive? (Surah Muhammad: 18) From this verse we learn that the Qur’an describes signs that announce the coming of the Last Day. In order to understand the signs of this ‘great announcement’ we must reflect upon these verses. Otherwise, as the verse indicates, our thinking will be of no use when the Last Day is suddenly upon us.   Read the Full Article at Adishakti.

Dead Sea Scrolls Now Available On Line

Dead Sea Scrolls Now Available On Line !

The discovery of the first Dead Sea Scrolls in a remote Judean Desert cave in 1947 is widely considered the greatest archaeological event of the twentieth century. Bedouin treasure hunters and archaeologists ultimately found the remains of hundreds of ancient scrolls. These fragile pieces of parchment and papyrus, including the oldest existing copies of the Hebrew Bible, were preserved for two thousand years by the hot, dry desert climate and the darkness of the caves where they were placed. The scrolls provide an unprecedented picture of the diverse religious beliefs of ancient Judaism, and of daily life during the turbulent Second Temple period when Jesus lived and preached.


Among the oldest known copies of Genesis, the fragment of the Scroll shown here contains the description of the first three days of the creation of the world. 4Q Genesisg Date: 100–1 bce, Late Hasmonean Period, Language: Hebrew

This small scroll preserves one of the earliest known copies of the “Ten Commandments” (the Decalogue), a central dogma in Judaism and Christianity, and the majestic description of their divine revelation at Mount Sinai. “I am the Lord your God who took you out of the Land of Egypt out of the house of bondage. You are to have no other gods but me.”— DEUTERONOMY 5:6-7


Date: 1–68 ce, Herodian Period Language: Hebrew. “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity”

— PSALMS 133:1
This book of Psalms is one of the best preserved biblical scrolls, containing 48 psalms, including 7 that are not found in the standard Masoretic version of the Bible. An additional prose passage provides one of the most ancient references to King David as the composer of the book of Psalms: “and David, the son of Jesse, was wise, and a light like the light of the sun… And he wrote 3,600 psalms.” Psalm 133, shown here, praises peace and togetherness.
Date: 50–1 bce, Herodian Period, Language: Greek. The “Twelve Minor Prophets” scrolls from the Judean Desert offer early evidence for the compilation of these short prophetic books into a single literary work. This particular fragment, from a Greek translation of the Minor Prophets discovered in the Cave of Horror at Nahal Hever, contains a prophecy of Micah about the End of Days and the rise of a ruler out of Bethlehem.
Non-biblical texts discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls offer us a tantalizing glimpse of life during the Second Temple period and the opportunity to understand the attitudes, desires and aspirations of the people of that time. Most of the scrolls from the Qumran caves are religious writings from the Second Temple period. Some of these reflect the life and philosophy of a distinctive group that called itself the “Yahad” (“Community”). At other sites, the major finds were administrative and personal documents dating from the catastrophic Judean revolt against Rome in 132–135 ce.

Date: 150–50 bce, Hasmonean Period Language: Aramaic. The book of Enoch was not included in the canon of the Hebrew Bible. It tells of Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, who lived for 365 years and “walked with God”. The displayed fragment describes the heavenly revolt of the fallen angels, and their descent to earth to cohabit with the daughters of men and to reveal secret knowledge to mankind, a story hinted at in Gen. 6:1-4.
Date: 50–1 bce, Herodian Period, Language: Aramaic. The Dead Sea Scrolls contain extensive apocalyptic literature relating to the final messianic battle at the End of Days. The Aramaic Apocryphon of Daniel describes either a messianic figure or a boastful ruler that will arise as “Son of God” or “Son of the Most High”, like the apocalyptic redeemer in the biblical book of Daniel. The text calls to mind the New Testament proclamation of the angel Gabriel concerning the new-born Jesus: “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High… ” (Luke 1:32)
Date: 20–50 ce, Herodian Period, Language: Hebrew. The Book of War details an apocalyptic 40-year battle between the forces of good and evil. This fragment preserves a blessing to be recited by the leader of the surviving community upon their victory in the final battle, at the end of time: “God Most High will bless you and shine his face upon you, and he will open for you his rich storehouse in the heavens.” God and his holy angels will bestow abundance and fertility upon the holy congregation, and protect them from plagues and wild animals.
