White smoke at Sistine Chapel signals election of new pope

The decision by 115 cardinal electors came sooner than many faithful expected because of the large number of possible frontrunners identified before the vote to replace Pope Benedict, who resigned in February.

The name of the new leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics was expected to be announced in around half an hour from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica.

The secret conclave began on Tuesday night with a first ballot in the Renaissance splendor of the chapel and four ballots were held on Wednesday.

The white smoke indicated the new pontiff had obtained the required two thirds majority in the fifth ballot.

Following a split ballot when they were first shut away amid the chapel’s Renaissance splendor on Tuesday evening, the cardinal electors held a first full day of deliberations on Wednesday. Black smoke rose after the morning session to signal no decision.

Cheers arose from hundreds of people sheltering from incessant rain under a sea of umbrellas in St. Peter’s Square as the white smoke billowed from the narrow chimney. source – JPost

  1. This next one is not a valid pope we have no valid popes since Pius XII Rome lost the faith and has become the seat of the AntiChrist the false prophet is at hand no matter what name he takes

  2. Juni says:

    i thought the next pope was Peter the Roman

  3. Carolyn says:

    No matter. Keep your eyes on Jesus, not Rome.

  4. frank says:

    You are all nuts just live life and stop talking about the end of the world we will all die in the end….

  5. Amanda says:

    My hope ain’t in no Pope!

    All those people on the TV screen, blinded by Satan!

  6. DC who is this man, does he have any connections to maleckeys prophesy?

    • We shall see, what did you expect his name to be peter the roman. lol Give it time. All things in time. Malachy is someone who wrote a prophecy outside the bible. Until proven otherwise it is a mans prophecy not Gods. We are to listen to the words of the bible (Gods Word).

      He is of Italian decent. Thats all that is known so far. But so are 90% of the Irish, although they will have a fit if you tell them that, but the simple fact is Rome ruled the earth for a long long long time and they were in Ireland for 300 years (just what do the Irish think they were doing there for 300 years?) The Roman seed is spread all over the earth and it is something they took pride in doing. America has not been ruling that long (300 years).

      Thats it so far he is of Italian Decent.

      AGAIN ITS THE WORD OF GOD WE ARE TO BE PAYING ATTENTION TOO. Remain calm and WATCH.

  7. Micah T says:

    Does this mean the end isn’t as close as we thought it was? I’m confused but all I know is God is in control and have faith in Him (:

  8. Carolyn says:

    Micah: one is not confused if one understands that God is in control, amen. Pay no attention to extra-Biblical prophecies.

  9. My Hope is in Christ Jesus and no one else. On Christ the solid rock I stand

  10. i agree , but it is very interesting

  11. cliche says:

    @Pastor larue I guess Peter is not the next pope…but that changes nothing…he already started doing things non-traditionally

    • “The origin or residence of the family gave rise to many surnames, e.g.,
      habitat: Della Valle (“of the valley”), Montagna (“mountain”), Burroni (“ravines”)
      specific placename: Romano (“Roman”), Puglisi/Pugliese (“Apulian”), Greco (“Greek”), da Vinci (“from Vinci”)
      nearby landmarks: La Porta (“the gate”), Fontana (“fountain”), Torregrossa (“big tower”), D’Arco (“of the arch”)
      [Ancestors’] occupation was also a great source of surnames.
      Job title: Contadino (“farmer”), Tagliabue (“ox-cutter”), Passagero (“toll-collector”)
      Objects (metonyms) associated with the vocation: Zappa (“hoe”, farmer), Delle Fave (“of the beans”, grocer), Martelli (“hammer”, carpenter), Tenaglia (“pincer”, smith), Farina (“flour”, baker), Forni (“ovens”, cook), Marin (“sea”, fisherman) ”
      Thus Francesco Pietro becomes Francesco Pietro Romano by placename and/or vocation.
      “A name in Italian consists of a given name (nome) and a surname (cognome). Surnames are normally written after given names. Occasionally in official documents, the surname may be written before given names.”
      Thus Francesco Pietro Romano becomes Pietro Francesco Romano.
      By the way, what are the odds that it is Italian custom whereby the surname is written before given name, and also that we are speaking of the pope who happens to be in a great officiating capacity ?
      Here is the clincher:
      “Few family names are still in the original Latin e.g. Santorum, De Juliis, Canalis, or De Laurentiis reflecting that the family name has been preserved from Medieval Latin sources as a part of their business or household documentation or church records.”
      In other words, the original Latin would be the preserved or purer form of the name, and especially so in this case since Catholicism has traditionally held Latin in high regard, even performing masses entirely in Latin for centuries.
      Thus Pietro Francesco Romano becomes Petrus Francescus Romanus, or in short, Petrus Romanus.

  12. We need to put our blessed hope in Jesus Christ not the Catholic Pope!
    We need to wait and see by his actions if he’s the False Prophet, if he is, it will be shown to us soon!

  13. NewMan says:

    Malachys prediction is interesting, but that’s all. What he said is NOT Bible prophecy. If it comes from The Word of God, you can count on it. But that did not. There are enough Biblical prophecies being fulfilled or being set up to be fulfilled to keep us busy with placing them in the order. We don’t have to have any extra-biblical predictions to convince us !!
    Matthew 24:33 says that when we see these things happening we know that His return is near !! (not a direct quote)

  14. johnjim says:

    Don’t get hung up on the St. Malchy’s prophecy. It’s a distraction by satan. All you need to know is that he is a Jesuit pope. Do some historical research about the jesuits. I see great danger ahead for Bible believing Christians. This pope has the potential to fool millions upon millions. Grow closer to the Saviour, and trust only in Him.

  15. Listen if someone says the end of the world is coming and you wait 20 minutes and it hasn’t come yet. Does that mean it isn’t coming? Come on people, give it time.

    Its been ending since the beginning.

    WE ARE TO LISTEN TO GOD’S WORD ONLY.

  16. Interesting discovery still verifying it but this new pope chose the name Francis after (supposed) St. Francis of Assisi Francis of Assisi’s original name is Francesco Pietro di Bernardone MIDDLE NAME PIETRO (PETER) The new pope is of Italian decent chose Francis of Assisi name who’s middle name was Peter. New Pope = Peter The Roman Could be a stretch but is interesting.

    Just thought I would toss that out there see what people think.

  17. Gail Webster says:

    YES WE ARE LIVING IN TROUBLE TIME.S WATCH THE SIGHS LIKE JESUS SAID. STAY CLOSE TO HIM. I HAD A FEELING THAT HE WOULD BE ITALIAN DECENT, SOME-ONE TO COME OUT OF ROMAN. PLEASE PRAY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT THEY WILL NOT BE FOOLED, THAT THIS POPE CARES FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE. HE IS THE LAST POPE. READ WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THE ANTI-CHRIST. AND THE MUSLIM ARE WITH THE ANTI-CHRIST. SHALOM:)

  18. Usc4life says:

    RNN NOTE: That Bergoglio–the final Pope on St. Malachy’s list and the one prophesied to reign over the church as it enters the Great Tribulation period–named himself after Saint Francis of Assisi is intriguing given that shortly before his death Assisi prophesied that at the time of the tribulation a man would “be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death… Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it…for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer” [Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis of Assisi (1182–1226), Washbourne, 1882 AD, 248].

  19. Usc4life says:

    This is a rush script from Raiders News Update and we’ll be able to give you more information as we analyze this fantastic fulfillment of prophecy.

    1. To start with, remember as we have told audiences repeatedly, the only thing needed to fulfill the Prophecy of the Popes would be a Cardinal of Italian descent and the new Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the son of Italian parents (Roman).

    2. Even more important is that he is the first Jesuit Pope ever (or at least for a very long time, we are researching this) and this is a VERY important aspect of the prediction in our book because we said the name “Petrus Romanus” from the prophecy “implies this pope will reaffirm the authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Church and will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Roman Catholic Church above all other religions and denominations, and its authority over all Christians and all peoples of the world” (Petrus Romanus pgs 437-438). Concerning the Jesuits, their order was organized “to stop Protestantism from spreading and to preserve communion with Rome and the
    successor of Peter…”

    Also note this from Wikipedia:

    The 35th General Congregation of the Society of Jesus convened on 5 January 2008 and elected Fr. Adolfo Nicolás as the new Superior General on 19 January 2008. A month after, the Pope (Benedict) received members of the General Congregation and urged them to “to continue on the path of this mission in full fidelity to your original charism” and asked them to reflect so as “to rediscover the fullest meaning of your characteristic ‘fourth vow’ of obedience to the Successor of Peter.” For this, he told them to “adhere totally to the Word of God and to the Magisterium’s task of preserving the integral truth and unity of Catholic doctrine.” This clear identity, according to the Pope, is important so that “many others may share in your ideals and join you effectively and enthusiastically.” The Congregation responded with a formal declaration titled “With New Fervor and Dynamism, the Society of Jesus Responds to the Call of Benedict XVI”, whereby they confirmed the Society’s fidelity to the Pope.

    As a Jesuit, Bergoglio also makes the perfect Pope to fulfill our second book’s (Exo-Vaticana) Chardinian Jesuit predictions who have been secretly arguing in favor of a coming an alien savior (MUCH MORE ON THAT WITH THE BOOK RELEASE NEXT WEEK).

    Also note this Pope was elected on 3-13-13 at 8:13 (phenomenally occult numerology) Vatican time while specifically on this date (13th) Pan-STARRS (Pan-demonium, all the demons) appeared close to the moon, even silhouetting it according to SPACE.com stargazing columnist Geoff Gaherty, an astronomer with the Starry Night Education night sky software company.

    STAY TUNED… AND PRAY!

  20. Gail Webster says:

    YES YOU ARE RIGHT (JOHN-JIM.)YES I CAN SEE GREAT DANGER FOR ALL TRUE BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIANS, THAT BELIEVE THE WORD OF FATHER GOD. YES I SEE THAT THIS POPE WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TOO FOOL MILLIONS, AND YES WE ARE TO KEEP CLOSE TO FATHER GOD JESUS, AND PRAY AND READ HIS WORD. THAT WILL KELP US STRONG NO MATTER WHAT IS AHEAD, I PRAY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT THEY WILL NOT BE FOOLED. PLEASE PRAY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE. SHALOM:)

    *****************************************************

    USA Today is reporting (2013/03/13):
    “Pope Francis chose a name that reflects St. Francis of Assisi’s humble ministry — and his own.”
    from http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/03/13/why-named-francis-assisi/1986017/

    Wikipedia states:
    “Francis of Assisi was one of seven children born to Pietro di Bernardone, a rich cloth merchant, and his wife Pica, about whom little is known except that she was originally from Provence, France.[10] Pietro was in France on business when Francis was born, and Pica had him baptised as Giovanni di Bernardone.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_of_Assisi

    also from Wikipedia:
    St. Francis of Assisi (Italian: Francesco d’Assisi, born Giovanni di Bernardone; 1181/1182 – October 3, 1226)

    In other words, St. Francis’ birth/baptismal name was Giovanni di Bernardone, and his Italian name is Francesco d’Assisi.

    According to Memidex:
    “Francesco di Pietro di Bernardone
    Definition:
    an Italian and the Roman Catholic monk who founded the Franciscan order of friars (born: 1181 – died: 1226)”

    from http://www.memidex.com/francesco-di-pietro-di-bernardone

    And so we have it… Argentine Jorge Mario Bergoglio chose as his papal name, Pope Francis I, and St. Francis’ birth/baptismal name was Giovanni di Bernardone; a.k.a Francesco di PIETRO di Bernardone, a.k.a. [Italian name] Francesco d’Assisi. The operative descriptor there is ‘Italian’.

    Here’s the clincher: St. Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals, the environment, and is ONE OF THE TWO PATRON SAINTS OF ITALY (with Catherine of Siena).

    The term Romanus in the Prophecy of the Popes is a triple reference in effective, poetic condensed fashion to the Italian Pietro name element, the patron saint of Italy, and the location of Rome, city of the seven hills.
    In my estimation, St. Malachy’s prophecy is continuing to be fulfilled.

    Maranatha! Even so, Lord Jesus Yeshua come.

    The Jesuit Order is Bad Bad News!!

  23. KB says:

    BFD!!! He is not the Vicar of Christ…another religion, another deception!!! Conclave is NOT of God and will never be. What did the pope do, call up God and said the pressure is too great…I’m quitting now. And the Lord said get your conclave together and decide on a new guy. Actually pick that guy in south america for me. What a joke…LMRO!!! Pope Schmope

  24. Dec says:

    To complement what Usc4life said from Raiders News Update with the 2013-03-13 8:13 occult numerology and timing of the third comet this year,

    Comet PANSTARRS to make appearance over North America

    http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2013/03/13/comet-panstarrs-to-make-appearance-over-north-america/

    The triple comet phenomena is significant as comets have traditionally in olden time been thought to be harbingers of doom.

  25. Since we are stretching things here why not go all out. Francis of Assissi was know to be St. tied to animals.

    Based on that information we got the beast coming. I don’t know. Lets not stretch things to far here lol

    Ultimately you can bet that no matter who the new pope was gonna be people would have found a way to fit him to peter the roman. The trick is not to make him fit peter the roman if thats even true or accurate. But let him fall into that in whatever way it is suppose to be. In other words do not force things. Patience. If it is it is if its not its not. Either way there are a gazillion other signs happening that there is overwhelming evidence for.

    • Levi says:

      Let me go further… Francis of Ass – is – si (yes in Italian language). That means Yes, Francis is ass (the beast) ha ha ha!!. No offence to hurt the Catholics. I am just trying to interpret what is written above. JK

  26. Dec says:

    I’ll post a third comment on this post since my first comment with three hyperlinks is awaiting moderation.

    St. Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals, the environment, and is ONE OF THE TWO PATRON SAINTS OF ITALY (with Catherine of Siena).

    The term Romanus in the Prophecy of the Popes is a triple reference in effective, poetic condensed fashion to the Italian Pietro name element, the patron saint of Italy, and the location of Rome, city of the seven hills.

    In my estimation, St. Malachy’s prophecy is indeed being fulfilled.

    here is some info on the Black Pope and Jesuits:

    http://allthechildrenoflight.wordpress.com/2013/02/10/the-black-pope-the-jesuits-the-society-of-jesus/

    (I don’t agree with everything on that page though, especially their anti-pre-trib position.)

  27. Here is one thing you should know about the Pope that should help you greatly.

    THEY CALL HIM THE HOLY FATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now what did Jesus Christ say about this?

    Matthew 23:9
    King James Version (KJV)

    9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

    • Just so you know, just in case your not into reading the most accurate version of the bible which is the (KJV) Matthew 23:9 is also in the catholic and many many many other variations of the bible and the exact words are the same No man on earth is to be called Father. There will be no excuses when that day comes.

      Yes I study different versions of the bible as well. KJV is my version that I use and only use but I do match up bibles all the time online.

      Lets not forget that ONE WORD WAS CHANGED AND ALL THIS WAS BROUGHT ABOUT. What do I mean and what word and I talking about?

      Genesis 2:17
      King James Version (KJV)

      17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

      Genesis 3:4
      King James Version (KJV)

      4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

      God said thou shall surely die and

      satan said ye shall NOT surely die

      One word and here we are. So yes its that serious.

  28. Now did Jesus mean to not call your dads your father. No I do not think that is what he meant at all. I think he was referring to FATHER as in having authority over man kind in any way. To refer to anyone in that manner is to reject the CREATOR. The Lord has issued many judgments for not recognizing him as creator all throughout the bible. This is what Jesus was referring to.

    Its the WORD HOLY that is used in front of father like he is being placed above people in a supreme manner, that he is what he is talking about.

    A true person of God would speak up and say do not call me your holy father. Yet none of the popes do this. THIS IS DEFINITELY against God and God is aware of it. Also they talk of this new pope being humble.

    Well a HUMBLE man would also speak up and say do not call me Holy Father as well. So we can see he is not humble and that is just a front.

  29. Levi says:

    So many things happened and are yet to happen this month.
    1) New Pope (A South American-Argentinian) gets elected
    2) Hugo Chavez (A South American-Venezuelan) dies
    3) North Korea cutting hotline and scrapping all peace deals with its South counterpart
    4) Obama visiting Israel on 20th

    Anything else you can remember of?

  30. I wish the new Pope be touched by the Holy Spirit so that he will take Bible in his hands and reform the pagans filled RC church. He should pray that the divine wisdom flows upon him everyday so that many RC people get saved and come out of slavery.

  31. Debra says:

    Dec. Thanks again for all the interesting info! Glad to have you here posting such compelling statistics. It will be very interesting to see how this all pans out! I’m just glad we have the Lord Jesus on our side if we live or die!!! There’s peace in Christ Jesus in the midst of the storm!!!!! Shalom!!!!!

  32. david says:

    SO…the black pope hides no more !!! This Jesuit General wannabe’s smoke of torment shall rise for an eternity, and shall be remembered no more. The last one that died has already been seen in the spirit…in the center of the world until all with him shall be sent to outer darkness away from rememberance. Into oblivion.

  33. TXnursie says:

    David, what do you mean that the last one that died has already been seen in the spirit in the center of the world? I haven’t heard about that, would be interested to know. Thanks!

  34. Guest says:

    Did the NTEB do an article on the so called angel cloud??

  35. KB says:

    Actually the conclave when they got toegther and started smoking the ganja, it rolled out of the chimney. While in secrecy, one head card dude got up and asked “is there anyone here that hasn’t molested someone?”

  36. can says:

    Thanks on your marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading
    it, you can be a great author. I will be sure to bookmark your blog and definitely will come back very soon.
    I want to encourage you to continue your great writing,

    I tend not to write a lot of remarks, however I looked at a few
    of the comments on this page White Smoke At Sistine Chapel Signals Election Of New Pope.
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or do some of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
