It is not Scripture, but his predictions on some of these things is fascinating. Some that I’m not reprinting is his idea that, somehow, the story of the pope is a repeat of the story of Zedekiah in 2 Kings – that this pope’s story will mirror that of King Zedekiah. It’s an interesting take – I would say, totally wrong, especially if the pope is supposed to be the good guy in the story – which, according to Mr. Conte, he is. Zedekiah’s story, as the last king of Judah in Bible times, is profoundly tragic – he is judged by God severely by having his children killed in front of him, having his eyes gouged out, and then dragged in chains to Babylon. Nothing good is ever said about him in Scripture. His evil was at least as bad as King Manasseh’s or King Jeconiah (because of whom God cursed David’s kingly line). Zedekiah not only treated God’s prophet, Jeremiah, badly, but he destroyed the written Word of God that had been presented to him by the prophet of the Lord. Not someone to be modeled after!
The Second Pope After John Paul II (by Ronald Conte, Jr.)
Pope #112 on St. Malachy’s list is given this description: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there shall reign Peter the Roman who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the terrible judge will judge the people.” 
Why is he called Peter the Roman? The descriptions given for John Paul I and II were about their Pontificates, not about their lives before they were elected Pope. Will Peter the Roman be someone born in Rome or who grew up in Rome or who has spent most of his vocation in Rome? Perhaps. But I think it is more likely that the expression “Peter the Roman” refers to his Pontificate. As a description of his Pontificate, the phrase “Peter the Roman” indicates that this Pope reaffirms the authority of the Pope over the Church, authority based on his place as a Successor of Peter. The expression also indicates that this Pope will reaffirm Rome as the proper seat of authority in the Church and require the faithful to acknowledge “the holy, Catholic, and apostolic Roman Church as the mother and teacher of all churches.”  His predecessor, the Pope of Peace(Pope Benedict XVI), will emphasize the good in other faiths and the unity among all peoples. But Peter the Roman will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Roman Catholic Church above all other religions and denominations, and its authority over all Christians and all peoples of the world.
Perhaps this Pope will take the name Pope Peter II. No Pope has chosen the name Peter since Christ gave that name to Simon bar-Jonah, who became Saint Peter, leader of the Apostles and the first Pope of the Church. The choice of the name Peter by this modern Pope would reaffirm that the Pope is the Successor of Peter. On the other hand, he might not actually take the name “Peter.” It could be that “Peter the Roman” is merely an expression describing his Pontificate. Some people think that Peter the Roman will be the last Pope ever and that the world will end during his Pontificate. No, not so! Peter the Roman is merely the last Pope on this list, not the last Pope ever. The time of Peter the Roman’s Pontificate is described in apocalyptic terms because His Pontificate will see the beginning of the events described in the Book of Revelation, especially the beginning of World War III(which is the first of the seven seals and the first of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse). But the events described in that last book of the Bible unfold over many years and the sufferings of Revelation do not reach completion until the mid 25th century. There will be many more Popes between Peter the Roman and the Return of Christ in A.D. 2437.
The seven-hilled city is the city of Rome, which not only has seven hills, but also is divided into seven Roman Catholic dioceses. St. Malachy is predicting that the city of Rome will be destroyed during the Pontificate of the Pope called Peter the Roman. My own interpretation of the Bible places the destruction of Rome and Vatican City in July of A.D. 2013. The prediction of Saint Malachy that Rome will be destroyed has a dual meaning. It refers to the destruction of Rome and Vatican City during World War III, at the beginning of the lesser tribulation, and it refers to the destruction of Rome and the seat of authority in the Church at the beginning of the greater tribulation (about the year A.D. 2430, just prior to the start of the Antichrist’s reign). That is why his prophecy says that God will judge the people, because both times that Rome is destroyed occur prior to the tribulation (which is divided into two parts), in which God judges and punishes the world.
Joe: Interesting! I disagree with some of this interpretation (like the placing of the Tribulation so far into the future), and the timing of some other things, but the prophecy of Malachy seems to nail this current “successor of Peter” pretty closely. I think, because Mr. Conte is a Roman Catholic, his interpretation is somewhat skewed. All I can finish with is the Scriptural description of the False Prophet – which I think IS fulfilled in this current pope:
11 Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. 13 It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, 14 and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. 16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. (Revelation 13: 11 – 18 ESV)
Joe: I am no prophet to interpret this. Read it for yourself! Pray for the Holy Spirit to help you understand it. This is the revealed Word of Jesus – Yeshua ha Mashiach!
