What to Expect from the False Prophet According to the Prophecies - Part 2

Here are seven signs of the False Prophet to watch out for:
1. Parades (False) Humility with Masterful Deception: Evil is pride masked as humility while masquerading. Every “humble” thing he does will be intentionally broadcast through the media, and he will claim to just be a normal humble person while his campaigns will show him to be a shameless exhibitionist. This propaganda will be exploited to raise his own popularity and seeming egalitarianism. Instead of defending the Faith, he will seek to impress the world’s Catholics by his actions and teachings. His performance of humility will not only be used to denigrate Benedict XVI and the rest of his predecessors, but to portray Benedict XVI as some uncharitable hardline traditionalist. If this occurs in the current pontificate, then we will start to see two sides dividing: Francis Catholics vs. Benedict Catholics.

He will not be who he appears to be, as the False Prophet he will be one of the greatest deceivers in human history, thus he will appear even perfectly to be the opposite of what he is, even more so than if he was really who he appears to be. Thus, he will come across playing his part more perfectly than a real Pope would, at least at first. All other Popes will be shown to have been less than they should have been, in the light of who he pretends to be. He will appear to be a Pope of Popes.
But, his inconsistency with tradition and veiled self-promotion will be one of the “signs” of pretension that he is the False Prophet.
2. Displays Unexplainable Charisma and Achieves Quick Global Influence: Unexplainably and immediately loved by the world and the media, with an unprecedented colossal popularity, where no matter what he says or does, it will only be interpreted one way, he will engage in double speak (speaking to both sides at the same time, out of both sides of his mouth) thereby intentionally causing confusion for the faithful. He will be treated like a living saint. Such a force will accompany him that not one word out of his mouth will be questioned. After some time, he will also appear to have supernatural gifts and people will believe he can perform miracles. Anyone who opposes him will be criticized and considered a heretic (the very opposite of what is true). All such souls accused of being heretics will be ridiculed and belittled, and even persecuted.
Example of his double speaking might be like this: “Of course we know that marriage is traditionally between a man and a woman, and so it shall remain; but we must also be tolerant and compassionate to those in same sex unions, who have (legal) rights as well. In today’s world, we must meet the people where they are; and who are we to judge anyway; thus, we shall require priests to grant them a blessing from the Church for the good of all.”
3. Utilizes the Law of Gradualness (and Popular Support) to Thwart Any Opposition: The hidden agenda of the False Prophet will be to move step by step, always in two directions simultaneously (in the direction of seeming to respect Church teaching and in the direction of altering it seemingly for a good reason), such that the changes that will occur will be minor enough that the faithful will not be aroused or alarmed sufficiently to see beyond the apparent good will of the Pope. As such it will be too difficult to mount a clear defensive to stop him. By way of small almost imperceptible steps – whereby the updating of Church teaching becomes modernizing becomes actual change becomes heresy – with a progression that is ever so cunning that it becomes unstoppable, and in such a way that it is even defended by the faithful who are not aware of the deception and the agenda that is unfolding because of its gradual nature and the double-speak that surrounds it.
4. Projects Openness to Doctrinal Revision and Sets Course for Apostasy: The False Prophet will mislead the Church into heresy, which is discussed as the first seal of the Book of Revelation, when the truth faith will be twisted, when the Church is presented with a new watered down doctrine. Ask yourself: Is Pope Francis taking steps that are possibly laying the groundwork for changes to doctrine and morality, even to the emergence of a one-world religion? If he is the False Prophet, Francis will not simply commit occasional theological mistakes in his rhetoric, but instead, he will move more and more toward openly professing a false faith, thus demonstrating that the faith he holds and professes is false, showing himself to be a heretical anti-pope, and confusing many by portraying the true Faith with a secretly false faith. He will also come up with a solution to unite all churches as one. Hailed as a modern innovator, he will be applauded by the secular world because he will condone sin. He will bring in new laws, which will, not only contradict the teachings (morality and doctrine) of the Catholic Church, but which will go against all Christian laws. This does not mean it will be easy for all to see, for he will use cleverly-crafted reasons, couched in a soft gentle manner, to blind many from the Truth. Every liberal bishop and theologian will have the ear of this Pope, and his praise. These Church leaders will also talk in double-speak in their efforts to undermine Catholic doctrine – their words of love and their quotes from Holy Scripture will be used only to deceive us, and they will scheme to make various reckless and confusing statements to the public – and in turn the False Prophet Pope will laud them as innovators. As this occurs, it will be required for all faithful Catholics to choose whose side they are on, or they will find themselves on the wrong side by default! Unfortunately, many will embrace their false leaders’ lies and laxities rather than face the challenges of the Truth. St. Robert Bellarmine stated: “It is granted to (only a) few to recognize the true Church amid the darkness of so many schisms and heresies, and to fewer still to love the truth, which they have seen, as to fly to its embrace.”
Thus, many of the faithful will be misled. Divisions will ensue. Then the False Prophet will prepare for the Antichrist to rule the new one-world religion, and together they will work to deceive all of God’s people. But the true Church shall not be prevailed against. The truth of Revelation as handed down to us in the Church through Scripture (the Bible) and Tradition (the Catechism) cannot be changed. And we may never do evil (like changing morality or discounting doctrine), even for a good reason. The sure “sign” of heresy and of the False Prophet is the changing of any doctrine, for any reason, even a cleverly disguised reason such as for the sake of (false) mercy, compassion, or unity – as exemplified by the following three examples currently being discussed around the Vatican:
False mercy in granting Communion (without valid annulment) to Catholic couples who are divorced and civilly remarried, even though they are in the state of adultery
Bible Verse: “Whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) and marries another commits adultery.” Matthew 19:9
Catechism Citation: “The Church maintains that a new union cannot be recognized as valid, if the first marriage was. If the divorced are remarried civilly, they find themselves in a situation that objectively contravenes God’s law. Consequently, they cannot receive Eucharistic communion as long as this situation persists.” CCC 1650
False compassion and excessive tolerance in requiring priests to grant a Church “blessing” to gay unions, even as a means to avoid discrimination
Bible Verses: Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, not adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the greedy, not drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9 RSVCE
“Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.” Romans 1:26-27
Catechism Citations: Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.’They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved… [Even] this inclination is objectively disordered.” CCC 2357-8
“The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring.” CCC 1601
“‘God himself is the author of marriage.’ The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator.” CCC 1603
“Holy Scripture affirms that man and woman were created for one another… ‘So they are no longer two, but one flesh.’” CCC 1605
False unity (ecumenism) in allowing non-Catholics to Communion in the Catholic Church through doctrinal compromise or revision and through changes to the Sacraments themselves
Bible Verse: “Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily will have to answer for the body and blood of the Lord.A person should examine himself,and so eat the bread and drink the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body (accepting all the doctrine of the Church and being in a state of grace in full communion with the Church), eats and drinks judgmenton himself.” 1 Corinthians 11:27-29
Catechism Citations: Anyone conscious of a grave sin must receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before coming to communion.”  CCC 1385
Those who receive the Eucharist must “have the required dispositions.” (CCC 1388) They must be in full communion with the Catholic Church, accept all the doctrines of the Church’s Tradition, and be in a state of grace.
Ecclesial communities derived from the Reformation and separated from the Catholic Church, ‘have not preserved the proper reality of the Eucharistic mystery in its fullness, especially because of the absence of the sacrament of Holy Orders.’ It is for this reason that, for the Catholic Church, Eucharistic intercommunion with these communities is not possible.”CCC 1400
Those who receive the Eucharist must “give evidence of holding the Catholic faith regarding these sacraments (including the Real Presence) and possess the required dispositions.”CCC 1401
Our Church is more and more under attack – from without and from within. What we will see is an attempt to fundamentally transform the Catholic Church, even from within her hierarchy. Is this not the very “doctrines of demons and pretensions of liars” that St. Paul warned would be sanctioned in the latter times (1 Timothy 4:1-2, 2 Timothy 3:1-5)? And if so, make no other conclusion, the wrathof Godwill indeed be directed against those who suppress the truth(Romans 1:18). Perhaps that can also be said toward anyone who suppresses the heavenly messages contained in these prophecies as well.
5. Instigates Divisions and Wars Secretly: The False Prophet will guide the Church to be caught up in revolutionary wars and internal divisions leading to a falsification of the Christian Faith so as to create a new religion fashioned in humanism, not Revelation, according to man’s ways, not God’s. Such wars are discussed as the second seal of the Book of Revelation, which will set the stage for the rise of the Antichrist who will come to power as a false peacemaker with his deceptively loving humane exterior. Be on your guard. Through his despicable deceit, the Antichrist will be seen as the messenger of love, peace, and harmony in the world. He will show a fa├žade of charm, with seeming compassion and love for all. At this point, the False Prophet will be pushed to one side for a time, because the Antichrist will now enter the world stage, as foretold. When you hear the media reports of the new, promising, skilled, peace negotiator, you will know who he is. He will be a very close ally of the False Prophet and is under no illusion as to who he is. The whole world will then fall under his spell. He will confuse many and tell people that all things are good, when they are bad, and holy, when they are not. He will shield and promote the wolves that want to devour the souls of God’s children; but true believers will know who he is.
6. Supports the New World Order and One-World Currency with His One World Religion: The False Prophet will give over his mesmerizing global worldwide influence to the man of lawlessness who will arise as a (false) peacemaker to end the global war that is soon coming and to assist him in establishing the new-world order, which is discussed in Chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation. And the Antichrist will control humanity through the new one-world currency and the mark of the beast. Then the persecution led by the New World Alliance will commence. We must take courage and be ready to receive some blows for the Truth. As Benedict XVI recently said: The courage of the truth is, in my eyes, a criterion of the first order of sainthood” in these times.
7. Eventually Assists in The Great Persecution: These two persons, the Antichrist and the False Prophet, are under the direction of Satan, and will bring all humanity to the brink of destruction. Persecution will evolve slowly and be subtle at first, following the law of gradualness. The False Prophet and the Antichrist will work in unison, in order to bring about desolation upon the world, which will result after the abomination in the Catholic Church has been fulfilled. All truth regarding Christ’s teachings will be twisted. Everything will be a lie.
The False Prophet, who will head up the shell of the Catholic Church on earth, will order mankind to worship the human leader of the Antichrist rather than God (Rev. 13:14-15). Then, the Sacraments will only truly be available from those priests (and other Christian clergy) who remain loyal to Christ and to the truths of the Faith. The problem is that those who side with the Antichrist and the False Prophet will be seen to be doing great good in the world, while those who follow the Laws of God will be demonized and sought out and persecuted. The Two Witnesses, the Catholic Church and the House of Israel, will testify against the false christ and the false church, and they will be persecuted, both externally and from within. A time will come when it seems both have been destroyed. But God will intervene, and they will rise again to form the New Heaven and the New Earth.
