Could ISIS fulfill a prophecy of the end of Rome?

News in recent days that ISIS executed Christians on a Libyan beach facing Italy resulted in some interesting insights.  Creating many enemies on multiple fronts seems irrational, but it all makes sense when I read the CNN article that ISIS has an end-of-times obsession, all their actions based on the narrative that they are paving the way for the great final war between the crusader armies of Rome and the defenders of Islam at the Syrian town of Dabiq.

I have always had respect for the prophecies of the Popes of Rome, the prophecies of Malachy. Here is the prophecy for the present Pope, believed by some to be the last Pope:

“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.

The conditions for such a prophecy to become manifested seems nearly too perfect: an end-of-times obsessed enemy of Rome (ISIS) who are prepared to go to any length of outrage; the location of ISIS directly across the water from Italy in Libya; the weak complacent security in the waters between Italy and Libya; the financial resources and widespread connections of ISIS to obtain a nuke.  All ISIS needs is the nuke, and the prophecy would be fulfilled.

These are interesting times for Satanists as the two ancient enemies of Satanism – Islam and Christianity – kill each other; get the popcorn, sit back and enjoy.

  1. If I was the ISIS commander, I would do my best to fulfill that prophecy, because I would be insane. But what would happen if there were no such prophecies? What would the religious nutters do then?

    I’m relying on memory here, but I remember people trying to fit Benedict into that prophecy but they had a hard time doing it. It had something to do with olives, and nothing fit, until they realized he had some olive trees near where he lived. Voila! They forced it to fit.

    Will it happen? I don’t know. All I know is that religious fundies are deluded into thinking their religion is key to their survival, and people can be vicious when their survival is on the line.
