Prophet Ratzinger?
By Nicholas
December 01, 2008



As we all know the Lord Jesus Christ predicted long ago in Matthew 24:11 that, "...many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." Looking around today we see a LOT of preachers claiming to be prophets so as to gain notoriety for a few months or even a few years. As usual, they fail and either disappear all together, or they re-write their so called prophecies so as to keep their popularity active. And yes the Roman Catholic church is no different. As I have exposed many times over the years, Rome has predicted many things to occur but always with the statement, "but this can change if we pray." This is a favored approach of all false prophets because they know they are not 100% positive their prophecy is accurate. So they must leave a door open just in case they fail. But I ask, where in Scripture has a prophet ever spoken for God of an imminent event and after it failed God gave him a new message to try again? My bible is plain...

Deuteronomy 18:22, "When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him."

With that said, please read the following article...

Pope Had `Prophecy' of Market Collapse in 1985, Tremonti Says
By Flavia Krause-Jackson and Lorenzo Totaro

Nov. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Pope Benedict XVI was the first to predict the crisis in the global financial system, a ``prophecy'' dating to a paper he wrote when he was a cardinal, Italian Finance Minister Giulio Tremonti said.

``The prediction that an undisciplined economy would collapse by its own rules can be found'' in an article written by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who became pope in April 2005, Tremonti said yesterday at Milan's Cattolica University.

German-born Ratzinger in 1985 presented a paper entitled ``Market Economy and Ethics'' at a Rome event dedicated to the Church and the economy. The future pope said a decline in ethics ``can actually cause the laws of the market to collapse.''

Pope Benedict in an Oct. 7 speech reflected on crashing markets and concluded that ``money vanishes, it is nothing'' and warned that ``the only solid reality is the word of God.''

The Vatican's official newspaper, l'Osservatore Romano, on the same day criticized the free-market model for having ``grown too much and badly in the past two decades.''

Besides the obvious fact that he was not the "first" to predict such a thing due to all the hundreds of economic expert forecasters that have been shouting this economic disaster as inevitable since as far as I can remember, Ratzinger never actually predicted or prophecied anything. Using the open statement that a decline in ethics "can actually cause the laws of the market to collapse" does not a prophecy make. The red flag here is he used the word "CAN" in his so called prophecy and not the word "WILL." Using the word "can" boldly declares he is guessing that bad actions "can" cause a problem. That means he is not 100% sure of his own statement and it's very possible he "can" be wrong. Had he used the word "will" it would have showed at least a little bit more backbone regarding his own statements. Still, the question has to be, is Ratzinger a prophet as the Bible defines as such? Let's see...

By the way, on the site I have a page that outlines the 16 biblical keys required by the Lord Himself for all His prophets. Let's go over a few that would apply to Ratzinger to see what's up. If you want to view all 16, please click here.

  • Deuteronomy 18:21-22, "And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him."

The true Prophet of the Lord predicts that which does come to pass with absolute accuracy. If the Prophet's predictions fail in even the slightest sense they are exposed as false and not of God. It may appear as if Ratzinger was right at first glance. But right off we notice the economy has not "yet" collapsed. Plus, hundreds, if not thousands of expert economic forecasters have also "predicted" a collapse by simply doing the math. Do we declare them prophets as well now? Or are they simply doing the job they were trained for? Truth be known, Ratzinger never actually said it "will" happen. He left the door wide open as a way to protect himself by saying it "can" happen. This is not a prophetic statement by any stretch of the imagination. The word 'can" here is no different then using the words "possibly" or "perhaps" while in the same context. This in turn proves he is unsure about his statement, which also proves he did not get this "message" from God because Scripture declares the Lord God is never unsure. Since the Lord is always sure, His prophets would also be sure.

  • Numbers 12:6, "And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream."

The true Prophet of the Lord will receive visions or dreams from the Lord on quite the regular basis. I have never once heard of Ratzinger ever having a dream or a vision from God that was either published or proven fulfilled. One would think that as old as he is there should be at least one vision if he is a prophet. (He was born April 16, 1927)

  • 2 Peter 1:20, "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."

A true Prophet NEVER gives his private interpretation. He only shares what the Lord reveals. As we learned from Jesus Himself and all the Apostles He taught, Scripture is always used to define Scripture, not man. Roman Catholic doctrine, which all Popes agree with, has been proven without debate to be 86.2% extra biblical. (Not found in the Word) Hence their doctrinal stand is replete with "private opinion" as is their prophetic stand. The fact it was Vatican directed Jesuits that fabricated the lie regarding the "secret Rapture" many years ago to scare people back into the church, which by the way has been proven crammed with private opinion to the point where any babe in Christ that studies prophetic symbolism can expose, proves all Popes to be false prophets. Unless there is some documentation somewhere that I missed where Ratzinger, as Pope Benedict 16, publicly denounced these false Vatican acts, he is in agreement with those proven private opinions that Scripture declare and bluntly define as false. Worse yet, the Vatican website has many pages speaking of the symbols in Revelation wherein they use private opinion to define the symbols while at the same time ignoring Scriptures that actually define the symbols in great detail.

  • 1 Corinthians 14:3-4, "But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church."

 A true Prophet will look to edify, comfort, and uplift the Church body by his testimony as well as exhort them. Before becoming Pope, Ratzinger was nicknamed "God's Rotweiller." A term not known to show comfort, edification or exhortation by any means. He was given the title for the bold and un-Christian manner he ran the "Holy Office" which in years past was called "the Office of Inquisition." The fact he ran such an office also proves he is not one to follow after the meekness of Christ. His recent hateful statements towards Muslims and Non-Catholics alike shows a heart not after God's desire to share Jesus Christ to all the world. A true Prophet always glorifies Christ, not self.

  • Isaiah 8:20, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."

 A true Prophet keeps God's written Law in stone and abides by the testimony of the Bible Prophets as a rule of life. If a Prophet does not agree with the Bible Prophet's or does not keep God's Ten Commandments he is most assuredly a false Prophet. As stated earlier, 86.2% of Roman Catholic doctrine does not agree with Scripture. What's worse, Ratzinger, aka Pope Benedict 16, as well as all previous Popes have demanded Sunday Laws wherein they not only openly deny the 4th Commandment, which is in the heart of the very Law Isaiah stated true believers would keep, they also demand laws to force all people to break God's Law. Just last October Pope Benedict 16 sought to enforce Sunday as Sabbath in the European Union in a Parliament meeting. Since failing to get an agreement to vote he now plans a vote on it this December. This one act against God's Law alone overwhelmingly proves him to be a false prophet. Absolutely every prophet of old have had this as a key of evidence regarding their strong stand with God. Ratzinger and all previous Pope's have this desire for Sunday Laws as their prophecied evidence against them as Antichrist.

  • 1 John 4:1-3, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."

A true Prophet believes and preaches the incarnation of the Saviour Jesus Christ. He will preach Jesus as God who came to Earth and put on humanity in order to redeem us all in humanity. He actually did "walk a mile in our shoes" as so many demand of Him yet fail to realize. Yes, the Pope claims to preach this, but does he really? Fact is, he also preaches Mary to be "co-redeemer" making that which Jesus did for us 2000 years ago insufficient.  Ratzinger also preaches as Pope that Jesus or Mary had no "original sin" upon their flesh. This is yet another fact that proves he is of Antichrist as it is plainly written for all to see...

  • 1 John 4:3, "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."

The Pope declares we as humans have the stain of "original sin" in or on our flesh due to what Adam and Eve did. He and all previous popes purposely deny the prophet Ezekiel when he says clearly,

  • Ezekiel 18:20 , "The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him."

The Pope's claim that Jesus had no "Original Sin" in or on His flesh is to say Jesus did not have the same flesh we have when He came here. No I am not saying Jesus had sin. I am saying His flesh was the same as our wherein it had the sinful nature and "...was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." (Hebrews 4:15) He had the sinful nature of the flesh, but chose not to bow to sin like the rest of us have.

When Ratzinger declares Jesus Christ came to this world in a flesh other than the flesh the catholic church teaches we bear, they are saying Jesus did NOT come in the flesh. Plain and simple. They say He came in a flesh "not stained" with the stain we supposedly bear. To say Jesus did not have in His flesh what "we" supposedly have in ours is to say He did not come in our flesh. And according to 1 John 4:3 that means he is an antichrist. And if he is antichrist, he cannot be a prophet of the Christian God. It doesn't get any simpler then that.

  • Matthew 7:15-20, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."

 A true Prophet will show good works, and have identifiable fruits of a Christian. He or she will have abundant BIBLICAL fruits in fact. Especially a prophet as they will live an commendable life glorifying God. Ratzinger was and still is a Nazi. His fruits are of the exact same fruits of Pope Pius XII (Hitler's pope) who created Hitler as a way to enforce Vatican law. Ratzinger has been instrumental in enforcing the exact same Neo Nazi methods Hitler was using in his day under Vatican direction. This alone proves for those with eyes that see that he is of the same spirit Pius XII was. Again, this is not the fruit of a prophet of the Christian God. 

As we have seen, Ratzinger can in no way be a prophet of the Christian God. For those of us that have studied the actions of Rome over the years we have come to realize it is not a Christian organization at all. It is the prophecied political monster designed by Satan to destroy Christianity from within. Since we study prophecy and have come to know the Popes are the "man of sin," we know first hand what they are doing, and what they plan to do.

  • 2 Thessalonians 2:3-6, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time."
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief."

The second coming of our Lord cannot "overtake us as a thief" simply because we do in fact study prophecy. And rightly so, as it is 33% of the written Word of God. To ignore prophecy is to ignore God's Word of warning. By the way, the Christian God is the one and only God that both created all things seen and unseen as well as prophecies with 100% accuracy. No other religion on earth can stake such a claim as this. This is why true Christians are so hated. Satan gets his subjects in a frenzy to try and kill us off because we preach the prophecied facts that expose his agenda with absolute clarity. It's a holy war, and we are soldiers for Christ.

  • Ephesians 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

It may seem from time to time we are losing the battle, but we are assured we will win the war.

As we look at all that has happened over the last few years, especially since 911 we see a globally orchestrated movement to take over the world by creating a New World Order that will bring the fascist global government with tools needed to be able to enforce the Roman Catholic Beast's mark. Thing is, even if their global efforts the enemy has confusion. When you look at the way they can't control their own plans and desires lately, or even organize properly so as to make their actions appear believable, this proves they are Babylon. September 11th proved they are truly out of touch with reality for the most part. If you just take a few minutes to look into what really happened on 911 you would see how disorganized their efforts really were. Yes, they showed intelligence in how they got the job done quickly, but sheer stupidity in the way they were unable to hide their actions. And lately their actions seem even more confusing. For example, if there is a real and not fabricated global economic collapse, or even a recession as they say, I ask why is it the gas prices are dropping while the materialistic items in the store are not going up in price, yet food prices are? It's like they are raising the prices on one thing at a time to see which works best. They tried oil and found the people were able to get by regardless, so are they now trying food prices? So far they can't seem to get on the same page. Plus, why is it the so called credit freeze never really affected anyone else outside of their advertised "failing" corporations in the news?

Truth is, Ratzinger aka Pope Benedict 16 is no prophet my friends. Simple reality dictates that it's not a "prophecy" when you are "planning" to do it. Am I a prophet when I predict I will end this Newsletter with the words, "the end?"
