Default Three Popes prediction

I have a new post on the three popes prediction of Conchita:
http://ronconte.wordpress.com/2011/1...of-garabandal/

As we have discussed before, the tribulation must begin during the reign of the current Pope, since three popes have passed before him. But as I explain here, it is likely that Pope Benedict will die soon.

Pope Benedict XVI was born 16 April 1927, so he was 84 years and 6 months old on 16 Oct 2011. He was the fifth oldest Pope at election, and if he were to die soon, he would rank as the 8th oldest Pope at death. If he lives for only another 3 years and a few months, he would be the second oldest Pope.

But I don't think he has that much more time, because the tribulation is at hand.

Good blog post. The Pope also has been reported to have high blood pressure which is estimated to affect the lifespan of a person by up to 5 years.

Ron, I think that the BVM was pretty clear in Fatima and Garabandal that there would not be a Third World War.
When you refer to the Third World War, I dont think you mean it in the sense that the average person would interpret it as in WWI or WWII.
Maybe you should change the terminology sos not to confuse people.

No, I do mean it in the sense of WWI and WWII.

My interpretation of Mary's statement is that there will not be a truly global war, nor a war involving all the superpowers. At La Salette, Mary did predict wars:

19. ‘France, Italy, Spain and England will be in war; blood will flow in the streets; Frenchman will fight with Frenchman, Italian with Italian; subsequently there will be a general war which will be appalling. For a time, God will no longer be mindful of France or Italy, because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is no longer known. The wicked will deploy all their malice; they will kill themselves, they will massacre themselves mutually even in the houses.’

23. ‘The earth will be struck all kinds of plagues [in addition to pestilence and famine which will be general]; there will be wars until the last war, which will then be made by the ten kings of the antichrist, which kings will have all one same design and will be the only ones who will rule the world. Before these arrive, there will be a type of false peace in the world; one will think only about amusing oneself; the wicked will deliver themselves over to all kinds of sin, but the children of the holy Church, the children of the faith, my true imitators, will grow in the love of God and in the virtues which are dear to me. Happy the humble souls guided by the Holy Spirit! I will fight with them until they arrive at the fullness of the age.’

32. ‘Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! there will be bloody wars and famines; pestilences and contagious diseases;

===========
But, God knows our interpretation of "World War" and that when humans hear WWIII they will think of it in terms of WWI and WWII, so when the BVM said there will not be a 3rd world war, she must have meant that there will not be a 3rd world war in the sense that we understand it.

Shes not playing games or riddles.

I think the terminiology is confusing. On one hand you are saying YES to WWIII as in WWI & WWII which incuded the superpowers then on the other hand you are saying NO, it will not involve all the superpowers.

So which is it? If its a war NOT involving all the superpowers then I think it should not be referred to as WWIII and just a war between some nations.

WWI and WWII were not wars involving all the superpowers;
neither are WW3 and WW4.

You're right, the superpowers were all involved in WW2. I was mistaken on that point.

At Garabandal, when the Virgin Mary was asked about the fears at that time (in the early 1960's) of a world war between the superpowers (U.S., Soviet Union, China), she answered that there would be no such world war. So she was speaking about the future. Perhaps she only meant to answer the question for that period of time, when people feared war.

But my interpretation is that no future war will be truly global, and no future war will involve all the superpowers (U.S., Russia, China).

Default popes prediction

Ron, have you heard that the current pope will go into exile and a false
pope will take his place?
As far as what is going on in this world. I believe that a war is coming.
Israel is under attack. Our own nation has gone socialist and is on a
course towards communism with our present administration.
There is another war that is going on and it is a spiriual war. Spiritual
warfare. Let us pray that God always for God's mercy and love to reach
souls before it is too late for them.

That is a false claim made by various false private revelations.
