PROPHECY WAS FULFILLED ... and you observed it.

Postby calvin » 16 Nov 2014, 14:06

But, you likely did not recognize it as a specific prophetic event taking place, even though clearly described in the Book of Revelation.

I am referring to the “rider on the first white horse” described in Rev 6:2.

This very charismatic world renown religious/political personage did ride a white horse and he did have a very distinctive “bow” as described in the Greek of that passage, and his “crown” (as described in the Greek of that passage) was unlike any of the gold and silver crowns of Europe.

He was the “image” of someone that literally died and yet “came back to life” … and he had eyes and a mouth speaking great things.

He and his followers displayed an identifying “mark” on their right hand and forehead as noted in Revelation, and his titled name did sum at 666 using a most difficult language to arrive at that sum … English.

Over a period of 35 years examining biblical suspects, only one summed at 666 … it is that difficult using this world recognized language.

A messianic website gave an example of his name summing at 666 in Hebrew … and another showed his name summing at 666 in Latin.

A group of “purists” within the Church of Rome refer to him as “Antichrist”.

I believe our “watchmen on the wall” and our prophecy experts were looking in the wrong direction when this came to pass … as their “order of events” did not fit the pattern they had been predicting. Also, they were looking for the “sensational” rather than the biblical.

Would they admit they were wrong in their predictions and claim that this is all just coincidence … that all these things are yet “future”?

Revelation refers to him as the “beast” … one of his titles is “primate”.

Our Lord called him … “Satan”. Mark 8:33
Our Lord asked him three times if he loved Him.
Our Lord stated that his death “in his old age” would glorify God.

Verily, verily, I say unto thee. When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. John 21:18

Are you old enough to remember when popes were literally carried?

There is a real Peter (and a real Mary) and then there is the blasphemous distortion that the Church of Rome has turned them into.

Calling Peter “Satan” and go tell his disciples … “and Peter” Mark 16:7. These are prophetic clues from our Lord to students of prophecy.
Just as in Luke 22:31 wherein Jesus says … Simon Simon, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.

Every pope is considered to be The “Image and Successor of Peter”.
When pope Paul VI spoke to the gathered reporters prior to his United Nations address he said, “Do you know who I am? My name is Peter.”

When a “papal peter” dies, they merely create another image of the previous one. This requires a 2/3 vote among their Cardinals …66.6%

When our great God literally destroys Mystery, Babylon (Vatican City) God will truly be glorified. Rev 18:16.

One of Rome’s mighty “miracles” is to change wine into the “literal” blood of Jesus and the priest then drinks it. Do you remember the saints and martyrs of the Inquisition and the Reformation?

For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. Rev 16:6

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth … (the seven hills of Rome) and the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. Rev 17:11

The Vatican Hill is across the river from the seven … the Vaticanus Hill is the eighth. The word “vatic” means … “prophet”.

Vatic = Prophet = Vatican = False Prophet


The previous pope, Paul VI died.
For the first time in the history of the Church Of Rome, his successor chose a “double name” … Albino Luciani chose the name … John Paul.

His reign lasted 33 days and he died … some reports claim murdered.
The search was on for another “papal peter”.

A puff of white smoke rose from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel and the world of Roman Catholicism rejoiced. The Church of Peter was no longer without its “rock”. The Vatican (False Prophet) had successfully caused an image to be made of the previous “head that died”.

And I saw one of its heads as it were wounded to death; and its deadly wound was healed … … Rev 13:3.

The wisp of white smoke indicated that the required 66.6% of the 111 Cardinals present had voted to select their new “Image of Peter”.
Shortly after, Cardinal Pericle Felici announced:

“Habemus Papen” – We have a pope – “Qui sibi nomen imposuit Joannes Paulus Secundus” – He has chosen the name JOHN PAUL SECOND.

On Oct. 16, 1978 history was made and prophecy fulfilled. At 6:44 pm



John Paul died and yet John Paul rose again.

Just as Jesus came in the name of his Father, our parents determine our “name. In fulfillment of prophecy, upon the election of a pope, he is asked – “what name do you wish to be called?” He chooses, and therefore “comes in his own name”.

I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. John 5:43

It was unprecedented for a pope to take a double name, but even more so for his successor to take the same double name.

Rome is built upon the myth of the twins (doubles) Romulus and Remus.
Have you wondered about the “repeats” or doubles in Revelation?
“Babylon is fallen, is fallen”. Rev 14:8 and repeated in Rev 18:2

“Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works; in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. Rev 18:6 and later, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment saying Alas, alas that great city Babylon … Rev 18:10

And later, alas alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet. Rev 18:16 and repeated in Rev 18:19

This historic event of a pope taking the previous pope’s same name alerted some students of prophecy, because they remembered the words of Alexander Hislop, the author of … “The Two Babylons”.

Regarding the 666 beast, Rev 13:18 tells us that he will have the number of a man. Hislop notes on page 271 that the sense these words have been generally understood is that he will be called by a name that has been borne by some individual man before.

Hislop is mystified by this for he states: “But surely this would be nothing very distinctive – nothing that might not equally apply to innumerable names.”

In most situations, this identifying point would be rather meaningless, but with reference to the papacy, this becomes a fulfillment of prophecy. John Paul II does bear the name of another – he is recognized as “Peter”
and bears the name of his predecessor, the 33 day pope.

Daniel said the beast would be stronger than his predecessors. Dan 7:20
Few would deny that the “man from Poland” was physically and politically “stronger” than previous popes.

This charismatic “Superstar of the Vatican” captivated the world as no other religious or political leader before him. His dynamic personality combines the piety of a saint with the strength of a dictator. If success is rated by power and popularity, then John Paul II sat at the pinnacle.

He will not regard the desire of women. Dan 11:37

He will pass for the most virtuous of men and will conquer (destroy) through a program of “peace”. Dan 8:25

He will be a traveler – he remains not at home.
John Paul II was the most traveled of all previous popes.

Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, (Rome’s “miracle” of transubstantiation) he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death and cannot be satisfied but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people. Habakkuk 2:5 Is this not a description of universal Romanism?

Eight years before John Paul II appeared on the scene, Robert Gromacki made the following comment regarding a “Revived Roman Empire”.

During his reign there will be an alliance of ten kingdoms or “horns”.
At the time (1983) the EEC (EU) appeared to be nine horns, but the prophecy experts overlooked that the UK (“united”) consisted of two kingdoms. Perhaps the following is a numerical “coincidence”.

DANEMARK = 67 (European spelling)
ITALY = 67
UK = 32

His “little horn” (Vatican Kingdom) comes up “among” the ten … not in addition to them as is often claimed by prophecy teachers. Dan 7:8, 24

By authority or persuasion, he subdues three of those horns, but seven willingly consent to his (religious) authority.

Seven of those EEC (EU) nations were predominantly Roman Catholic, two Protestant and one Greek Orthodox.

He will exercise authority in many nations. Rev 13:8
His city, Vatican City (Mystery, Babylon) has reigned over kings of the earth. Rev 17:18

When this great personage burst upon the world scene, he did not appear as the beast, but as a man whom the world adored. Those who recognized him from scripture were not believed. Christianity shunned those who would call such a “saintly” person Antichrist.

When John Paul II toured the United States, President Carter greeted him with “God blessed America by sending you to us.” Billy Graham stated “He’s the most respected religious leader in the world today.”

Daniel informed us that “arms will stand on his part”. Dan 11:31
I, like many others thought this to mean a “weapon”.

Examination of the Hebrew text reveals this to mean that his arms are “outstretched”. Strongs #2220

This unusual identification was one of John Paul II’s “trademarks”.
He (being a former actor) knows how to move the masses. He would raise his arms in the form of a bow to urge on and acknowledge the adulation of the gathered multitudes.

He was the “rider on the white horse” of Rev 6:2 with crown and bow.
His white “popemobile” was a converted Ford “Bronco” in the US and on his weekly rounds at Saint Peter’s Square, it was a white Land Rover.

Might John of Patmos describe this vision as a “rider on a white horse”?

At this time, rather than go deeper into the “mark of the beast” and the “image of the beast” I will conclude with the “bow and crown” of Rev 6:2.

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. Rev 6:2

The identifying key to this passage is the bow and the crown.
Surprisingly, some prophecy teachers have actually referred to this bow as … a weapon. You have likely read that claim yourself.

Those who were looking for a military type 666 beast erred in reasoning that the bow was a weapon. Of the five NT occurrences, four of them mean to bend or to “bow down” … that was John Paul II’s distinguishing trademark … upon his arrival at the host country, he would “bow” to the ground and kiss it.

The fifth and final occurrence of this word is found in our verse under discussion.

Oddly enough, its use in this particular verse means neither “weapon” nor to “bow” down.

This particular “bow” is from the Greek form meaning … cloth.
This rider on the white horse is a … “man of the cloth”.

The specific word “crown” of this rider is from the Greek “stepho” meaning to “twine or wreathe”.

This rider on the white horse of religion is in some way associated with “cloth that is wreathed”.

That is a perfect description of the papal … “Triple Crown”.
It is unlike any of the solid gold or silver crowns of Europe.

According to the New educator Encyclopedia Vol 9 page 3575 and other sources. It is … “weaved of cloth of gold”.

Not only that, but it is claimed by some Rome watchers that at one time this “Triple Tiara” displayed the Latin phrase “Vicar of Christ” on it and that phrase in Latin summed at … 666 … just as the six original Latin letters I V X L C D = 666.

Note the following passage in Revelation.
And the great city (Vatican City) was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. Rev 16:19

The Vatican’s “Triple Crown” signifies her authority in 3 places or parts.

1. on earth
2. in heaven
3. in hell

Evidence has been presented. Who will believe my report?

The papal “image” was described and came to pass.
The 666 numbered beast was described and came to pass.
The rider on the first white horse with bow and crown has come to pass.

Where is the “mark of the beast” located?
On the right hand and forehead of the followers of the beast. Rev 13:16

With his right hand, the priest dips his thumb into the water and places the mark (charagma) upon the forehead of the infant followers of the beast at their baptism.

On Ash Wednesdays, with his right hand, the priest dips his thumb into the wood ashes and places the mark upon the forehead of the adult followers of the beast. This is where the term being “under the thumb” originated.

Preterists claim Mystery Babylon is Jerusalem and Historicists claim it is Vatican City. I believe God is going to destroy that city sooner than most prophecy teachers expect. If correct, they will then be saying … how can this be? … where is the mark of the beast, the speaking image and the numbered beast? … these things were supposed to appear before God destroys that great city! Perhaps then, they may (?) understand.

Some elements of that interpretation are a stretch, for example, convoluted numerology is not needed to show the simple truth. See the following illustration. Image

The name of the mark of the beast is “Vicarius Filii Dei” — Andreas Helwig (1612), H. Kett (1799), A. Armstrong (1815), G. Croly (1838), R. C. Shimeall (1842), Robert Fleming’s 1843 Editor, E. B. Elliott (1844), Anonymous (1850), U. Smith (1881), H. E. Barton (1963), F. W. C. Neser (1974), T. Foster (1975), F. N. Lee (1999), E. J. Watson (1999), D. L. Hanson (2002), B. Molles (2004), G. Hotter (2006), H. Hemenway (2007), G. B. McGrath (2012).
