Once and Future Pope/King

Yesterday, the new Time cover came out with the pope on the front with the phrase: "The Once and Future Pope."

This is a bit complicated and I am rotten at explaining things, so try and follow along.

I believe the next pope will be the false prophet of the Bible.  The false prophet is the forerunner to the antichrist.  As a matter of fact, he's going to be very much like the antichrist, with the exception that he will be a spiritual leader rather than a political leader.  The Bible describes him as having horns like a lamb but speaking like a dragon.  This seems obvious that it's a spiritual leader who says one thing but does another.

The fact that the false prophet is a forerunner to the beast/antichrist, should show you why the Time magazine cover reads the way it does.  It's an OBVIOUS reference to King Arthur.  King Arthur is known as "The Once and Future King" and I believe the Bible refers to King Arthur as well in Reverlation 17:8: The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Was and is - once and right now - future.


  1. It's interesting to note that the face of the pope on Time's cover is black. As is the face of Peter 'Petrus' Turkson the top candidate for the job.

  2. Turkson seems too obvious - "too Petrus Romanus" - if you will. We'll see...
