Does “the black pope” wield the true power in the Vatican?

  • Written by:
  • 1 Reply

Full Question

I heard that the Vatican is run by an individual called “the black pope,” who holds all the real power. What do you say to that?

Answer

There is a person sometimes called “the black pope,” but his existence is not a secret and he does not have anywhere near as much power as the real pope. “The black pope” is a nickname given to the Father General of the Society of Jesus. When the Jesuits were the most prestigious, influential missionary order in the world, the people of Rome began to speak jokingly of their head as a second pope. They called him “the black pope” because he wore the Jesuits’ black clerical garb, in contrast to the real pope, who wore white and became known as “the white pope.”

“The black pope” does not have authority over anyone but Jesuits. Sometimes people point to him as evidence of a conspiracy in the Vatican, but what they really have is a garbled understanding of a Catholic in-joke.

    Going by the JESUIT’S Preterits Interpretation of the BOOK OF REVELATION of the Holy Bible, this so-called “joke” may well be TRUE !!!
    Witness my own Interpretation of rev. 13.11 as follows:The so-called “BLACK POPE” is naught but SATANAEL / SATANIEL in the End-Time, when he is cast down to Earth as per Rev. Chapter 12, to PERSONALLY guide the current TWO FALSE POPES: Pope Francis I & Pope Emeritus {Pope “By Merit”} Benedict XVI, as per my Interpretation of Rev. 13.11, as follows:

    About the FALSE POPE / TWO FALSE POPES,
    =====================================
    & 666, their so-called “HOLY YEAR OF MERCY”:
    ======================================
    The TWO HORNS {False Popes} of the PAPAL LAMB, the “OTTOMAN POPES”:
    ==============================================================

    Rev. 13:11: And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.
    This Verse of the Book Of Revelation of the Holy Bible most probably refers to the TWO POPES, {“2 horns”= 2 Popes, Pope Francis I and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI; and “he spoke as a Dragon”= Pope Francis I}, viz.: the LAMB Of GOD who represents Our Beloved and Blessed Lord and Saviour JESUS CHRIST {the Sacrificial Lamb}, on Earth, the POPE/S represent the LAMB on Earth, {“coming out of the Earth” – Human Being/s}, and therefore are the 2 FALSE POPES !!!
    The actions of Pope Francis I may be explained away as “Populist”, but in as much as he alters or contravenes and sidesteps Religious Doctrine and Dogma held in esteem for more than 2000 Years, and declares the MUSLIM “Allah” to be the same as YAHWEH the Judeo-Christian “God The Father” who ALL Roman Catholics can or must worship by becoming Muslims, then this makes him come increasingly under the World Spotlight, and the Re-Emergence of the former Pope: Now “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI supporting his “New Doctrine & Dogma” is certainly most unusual and HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, TWO POPES AT THE SAME TIME, TWO POPES BOTH ACTING TOGETHER AS ONE POPE, the Singular Entity of Rev. Chapter 13, Verses 13.11 to 13.18 !!!
    The “OTTOMAN POPES” !!!
    The TWO POPES could also be the Opposition to the TWO WITNESSES OF THE APOCALYPSE {mentioned in Rev. Chapter 11}, who are described as “Two Candlesticks and Olive Trees before the Lord of the Earth”.
    “Two Candlesticks” meaning Two Churches which are meant to replace all the other Churches during the End-Time, and, as the Two Witnesses will be imbued with the Holy Spirit, these Two Churches will be directly under the Holy Spirit as described more fully in Chapter 11 of the Book Of Revelation of the Holy Bible, and all Christian Faithful and all Clergy of ALL Denominations are to be guided by these TWO WITNESS-PROPHETS OF THE APOCALYPSE as soon as the “Great Sign in the Heavens” of Rev. 12.1 appears in the Sky, and they make a Joint Declaration to that effect, and the said Christian Faithful should not be led astray by the 2 False Popes.

    The so-called “PAPAL HOLY {JUBILEE} YEAR OF MERCY”:
    ==============================================

    Further down Rev. Chapter 13, we have:

    Rev. 13:16 And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads.
    Rev. 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
    Rev. 13:18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six.

    666:
    ===

    The issuance of 666, {ref. Rev. 13.18 above}, the Mark & No. of the BIBLICAL BEAST OF WORLD FINANCE, soon to be declared by the VATICAN, any day now,: 7 Nations / Banks {7 Diademed (Crowned) HEADS of the Biblical Beast Of World Finance}, supported by 10 Financiers / Underwriters {10 HORNS of the said Biblical Beast of World Finance}, which, even as we speak, is being organzied / awaiting announcement by the 2 False Popes of the VATICAN !!!

    WHAT BETTER WAY TO ADMINISTER THIS UNHOLY MARK & No. THAN TO DECLARE AN {Out-Of-Turn} PAPAL “HOLY YEAR OF MERCY” TO GET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOCKING AT THE VATICAN’S DOORS ASKING FOR MERCY !!!

    Truly PAPAL BULL{SH*T} !!!

    Then what’s stopping the Declaration of this Satanical Mark & No. ???:

    Answer: Rev. Chapter 12.

    Rev. Chapter 12 has first to be accomplished, & I am expecting it all to begin any one of these days, surely in THIS YEAR ITSELF, in order to fulfill Daniel’s prophecies.

    It will begin with Rev. 12.1: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars”, & followed immediately by The GREAT TRIBULATION OF THE CHRISTIANS AT THE HANDS OF THE FALLEN ANGELS URGING ON THE FANATICAL MUSLIMS !!!, as fully described in my “FULL INTERPRETATION In ENGLISH” & it’s short “SUMMATION In ENGLISH” on YAHOO & on my FACEBOOK {Public} Timeline accessible using my name: “CaptRosslyn Crasto” as the FACEBOOK Search Engine. AMEN !!!
