Its been some days now three days now to be exact we have heard the news of the sudden resignation of pope Benedict XVI.
We have heard in the news that the middle of march is the deadline set to select the new bishop of Rome.That makes it three(3) weeks from now that we will have the leader of both the state the (Vatican) and the Church (Catholicism) will have its king sitting on the throne in the Vatican. It would be prudent to note that Catholic means Universal church keep this in mind.
I have been studying Daniel 11:40-45 for the past four years now and it has proven truly to line up with the history of 1798 up to this time. Thus far one verse has predicted not almost but dead on all the historical events that tell us we are in the closing moments of earth's history. The reason why i have confidence in one verse ie verse 40 that its accurate is because we have seen the history from Daniel 11:1 yes verse one to 39 as accurate as the sun's position in the sky. Gods word we can trust.
While I am not making any prophetic forecast i have reason to believe that the next Pope could come from the United States of America. I could be wrong. Maybe the pope coming from anywhere in the world will still lead to the things we know concerning America in Revelation 13. However the time is ripe for Pope coming from America because all the entities in bible prophecy are ready to fulfil their roles.

The Bible says Dan 11:41 HE shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
We are going to deal with this one phrase "HE shall enter also into the glorious land"
The two links above tells us who the "HE" in verse 41 is the King Of The North. We have ascertain from the Bible that the King of the North at the end of the world is the Papacy see the links above.
Now Holy Scripture says He shall enter into the the GLORIOUS LAND in verse 41.
WHERE ON EARTH TODAY IS THE GLORIOUS LAND.
The word for Glory Strong's Hebrew is H6643
From H6638 in the sense of prominence; splendor (as conspicuous); also a gazelle (as beautiful): - beautiful (-ty), glorious (-ry), goodly, pleasant, roe (-buck).
Lets look in the bible to see where we can find in ancient times by its characteristics we can determine the modern Glorious land.
- PLEASANT LANDS .
- GOODLY LANDS.
- PLACES OF PROMINENCE.
Dan 8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. (ie East,West, North and South)
Daniel 8:9. And out of one of them (winds) came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward
the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant [land].
The book of Daniel,chapter 2 tells us the kingdoms that would rule the earth until the end of time.
The History goes like this ,Heads of Gold Babylon, Chest and arms of Silver Medio Persia, Belly and thighs of brass Greece, then Legs of Iron Pagan Rome,Then Iron and clay feet of Papal Rome up to the papal removal as a world power in 1798. This was the deadly wound described in Revelation 13 inflicted on the first beast ,the great and terrible beast. The toes in Daniel 2 represent Modern Rome, the system that resembles old ancient Rome (Iron kingdom), but has the influence of a church (Iron mixed with clay kingdom) is where we see the world divided into 10 regions.This is the New World Order according to Bible.
Daniel 11, the chapter that we are now looking over goes through most of that history starting from Grecian Empire under the rule of Alexander the Great. Daniel 8:8 shows t the Grecian kingdom with the Notable Horn Alexamder himself . Then his kingdom Greece was divided into four (4) warring factions under Alexander's four great Generals historically know as Lysimacous ,Cassander Seleucius and Ptolemy (P silent), this explanation is given in the follwing verses if you mouse over
(Daniel 8:20, Daniel 8:21, Daniel 8:22, Daniel 8:23, Daniel 8:24).This is how Greece under the Great Alexander's Grecian kingdom came to its end as a ruling kingdom on the earth.
The kingdom that followed is Pagan Rome, the Little horn he magnify its self.
Dan 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
Dan 8:10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
Dan 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host.
This is Rome pagan that persecuted the disciples. Saul was the instrument under Rome that persecuted the (stars of heaven the apostles and followers of Christ) Acts7:58 and Act8:1,Acts 8:3, Acts 9:1,Dan 12:3
It was Rome pagan via the Roman Caesars that magnify itself above the Prince of the Host (Christ) to kill him in John 19:10
It was pagan Rome that Waxed Great to south Egypt ,towards the East Syria and towards the place that we have been trying to defined as the PLEASANT LAND Palestine in Judea. Now that we have the events and individual leading up to this Pleasant land we can be sure of its exactness based on the correct historical walk that we just took.
The scripture and History agree that pagan Rome did conquer these three areas at its ascendancy.
- Egypt “toward the south”
- Syria “toward the east”
- Judea “toward the pleasant land”
Bible foretold this would happen after the Babylonian captivity that Gods people will settled down in the pleasant land Judea. Now note the characteristics of the pleasant land,with this information we can see where on the planet is the Modern day PLEASANT LAND.
Jeremiah 3:18, 19
In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north (BABYLON) to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers. But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.
Exodus 6:7, 8.
And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that
I [am] the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I [am] the LORD.
But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.
The Goodly land is where the Children of God were given was a place of rest and peace, It was a place free from the bondage of torment and slavery where they could worship the God of heaven in peace.It was the the pleasant land the Land where all longed for.
- United States America is where most people in the world wanted to migrate to.
- The USA is a nation of immigrants, people love to go to that land for the American Dream.
- It is USA that many found solace and peace away from the bondage of Kingly rule and Papal persecution.
- It is the USA that many ran to practice free religion under its great constitutional decree,a document that epitomises freedom both civil and religious and justice for all.
- It is in America where the great beacon of protestantism burns brightest.
- It is in America where all protestant headquaters are based the USA is the citadel for protestantism.
- It is the America that is represented in Bible prophecy as the Earth (land) that swallowed up the flood of persecution that came after the woman (the church) out of the dragons mouth (Satan).
For Papal Rome to ascend the throne of the earth for the deadly wound to be heal it has to conquer three geographical obstacles. God shows the end by telling us what the beginning was like .In the beginning of Roman system Pagan Rome overcame three geographical obstacles.
Daniel Dan 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
Hysterically and prophetically in the Dan 8:9 Rome took out three obstacles to gain the ascendancy on the earth.
Rome did this twice in past histories also in bible you can prove these times.
1st History: Pagan Rome removed three(3) obstacles
- Egypt “toward the south”
- Syria “toward the east”
- Judea “toward the pleasant land”
This time via the help of a STATE power,namely Clovis the king of France who became the sword of the papacy setting him upon the throne of the earth from 538- 1798=1260 days of Revelation 12:14, Dan_7:25,Daniel 12:7. incidentally it was France that set the Papacy up and France that took him down
- King of the South ( Atheism) 1989 fall of Communism , via John Paul .Accomplished
- Glorious Land.(American or Protestantism) headquateredif there is such a word in America (future)
- Egypt finally. Note Egypt represents the World or worldly in Bible prophecy.
Most protestant churches have already shown allegiance to Rome and some are even responding to the call to come back home to mother Rome,but to have the Papal Head from America sit on the thrown of the Vatican is a step towards the protestant America being overthrown. The papacy will see it as conquest to have the pontifical General come from the United states.
Revelation 13 shows a lamb like Beast with two horns or two instrument of its power, namely Republicanism and Protestantism. This is Freedom of the Republic without Kingly rule and secondly Freedom of Religion specifically protestantism.
But the bible talks of a beast that gives power to the great and terrible beast in Revelation13 that cause the Great and Terrible Beast wounds to Heal.
How is this done ? By forming an IMAGE TO THE BEAST. You can only form an image to something by forming a replica of its defining characteristics. The Papacy has always been govern as a church and state power . The Papal Sea is church Craft, the Vatican is its territory and state. The Pope hold reigns of both Priest and King.This was once the case with him being such over the whole world and when this was done the blood of Bible believing Christians flow. Heretics (those who do not acknowledge the doctrines and dictates of Rome were behead, flail,burn at the stake,put in prison and suffer all manure of torture too gruesome to pen. The Joining of church and State by any country will form the image to the beast.And that second beast in Revelation 13 will be the one to cause the deadly wound of the Great and terrible to heal.
Who is this second BEAST POWER IN REVELATION 17 THAT CAUSES THE DEADLY WOUND OF THE PAPAL RULE TO BE HEALED.
Rev 13:11 another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Bible says :Rev_13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Rev_13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
With the lamb like Beast being America,the Pope being American that should make the Dan 11:41 the latter part seamless. The Sunday law a religious law pushed by protestant America under the loving care of an American Pope can certainly move quickly the final events of Earth's history and an image to be the beast is easily formed which will empower once again Papal Rule and Kingly dominion.
Certainly America is speaking like a dragon at this time via its laws and this is what we expect, for a nation speaks via its laws and its ability to CAUSE..as Rev 13:12. All the infrastructure is in place.The laws,Detention centres,taking away of the liberties of the people,even the chief justices are all Catholic except one.
The question is are you ready, have you been cleansed from sin, have you given all to Jesus.The only ONE that can save you or keep you saved is Christ in the heart. No other weapon can prevent the works of Satan to have its way .We know from history when the Papacy sitteth on the throne of the earth persecution starts on Bible believing Christians who will then be named as in the past histories as Heretics.
He will enter into the Glorious Land as Daniel 11:41 says.The "how "is probably what we will see in the next 3 weeks. If the Pope is an American and one American , if he is selected the Papacy can bring down Protestantism easy from that point on. the Seat of Protestant America will easily pay homage to an pope of American origin . Protestant who are not protesting anymore is already stretching its hand across the gulf to clasp hands with the Papacy , A Vatican II influenced protestants will easily give over to the "New Catholic Evangelistic thrust. "All the World will wonder after the Beast ". We wait and see
Even if the Pope is not an American Bible prophecy remains accurate while details human reasoning remain sketchy.
