Why Do I Believe In Pope Michael?

What happens in the Old Testament is a prefigure to what is to come for example, the books in
the old testament foretold the coming of Jesus Christ. So too do they foretell the coming of Antichrist.
You and I agree that “Vatican II” was not Catholic, or at least can you agree that were was an
irregularity that occurred? I state that they fell into heresy because Vatican II taught contrary to the
Catholic Faith, you may not agree. Whether or not you wish to agree with me, is another story for some
other time. Novus Ordo, as you and I agree, is not the same as the Tridentine Mass.
In the book of Daniel it states that there will come a time when the sacrifice of the Mass will
cease. “And from the time when the continual sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination unto
desolation shall be set up.” [Daniel 12:11]
Up until 1958 the Catholic Mass was said all over the world constantly every minute (fulfilling
the line in Holy Scripture continual sacrifice). For there was a Catholic Church erected on every
continent. Thus so that part of Holy Scripture would be fulfilled.
“And the abomination unto desolation shall be set up” is the Novus Ordo Mass. That line from
Daniel is fulfilled.
What happened after the death of Pope Pius XII?
“Then Jesus saith to them: All you shall be scandalized in me this night. For it is written: I will
strike the shepherd: and the sheep of the flock shall be dispersed.” [Matthew 26:31] (Catholic
Commentary: Scandalized in me. For as much as my being apprehended shall make you all run away
and forsake me.)
In the prayer of Leo XIII for the prayer to St. Michael he writes: “In the Holy Place itself, where
has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they
have raised the throne of their abominable impiety with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has
been struck the sheep may be scattered.”
When a shepherd is taken away from its sheep, the sheep scatter. Look at what happen to St.
Peter when he fled from the Lord. All the apostles fled except St. John who stood by the crucifixion of
Jesus Christ. We can thus state that the Pope is necessary for the unity of the Church. “The Church has
but one ruler and one governor, the invisible one, Christ, whom the eternal Father hath made head over
all the Church, which is his body; the visible one, the Pope, who, as a legitimate successor of Peter, the
Prince of the Apostles, fills the Apostolic Chair. It is the unanimous teaching of the Fathers that this
visible head is necessary to establish and preserve unity in the Church.” (Catechism of the Council of
Trent)
I hold that there was no valid pope until 1990. That is when Pope Michael was elected.
You then have a gap between 1958-1990, which roughly comes out to 32 years of a vacancy.
The only thing that lasted longer than that was the Western Schism which lasted roughly 39 years
(1378-1417), having a true pope and two antipopes. While today there are an innumerable amount.
“And when the scattering of the band of the holy people shall be accomplished, all these things
shall be finished.” [Daniel 12:7]
We can conclude that since there was no shepherd, that is no pope for 32 years, the sheep
(Catholics) have been scattered. Those sheep that were scattered, came to elect a pope to retain Church
unity, under the pain of anathema from the Vatican Council in 1870.
Denzinger 1825 [Canon]. “If anyone then says that it is not from the institution of Christ the
Lord Himself, or by divine right that the blessed Peter has perpetual successors in the primacy over the
universal Church, or that the Roman Pontiff is not the successor of blessed Peter in the same primacy,
let him be anathema.”
Pope Michael was referred in the old testament as the coming pope.

“But at that time shall Michael rise up, the great prince, who standeth for the children of thy
people: and a time shall come such as never was from the time that nations began even until that time.
And at that time shall thy people be saved, every one that shall be found written in the book.” [Daniel
12:1]
When is the worst time in Biblical History? The great tribulation.
“For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world
until now, neither shall be. And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for
the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened.” [Matthew 24:21-22]
Look at what it states in Daniel (Old Testament): “A time shall come such as never was from the
time that nations began even until that time.”
Look at what St. Matthew (New Testament): “Such as hath not been from the beginning of the
world until now, neither shall be.”
Since the foundation of the world until the great tribulation nothing will compare to the great
tribulation. Look at the history of the Church since Jesus Christ founded it upon St. Peter. Nothing in
Church history has come even this close to the chaos we experience today.
We can thus conclude that Michael, will come when the Church is in its greatest tribulation.
Pope Michael had a great devotion to St. Michael every since he was a child. That is why he
choose that papal name, Michael.
Now we know that the Old Testament prefigures things that are going to come in the New
Testament, let us look at some more examples.
“But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up to them.”
[Jeremias 30:9] “David their king,” a king is normally at the top of the pole of power, so thus the
Papacy in the Catholic Church is the highest office one can have, and the Pope is judged by no one
except God. As it states in the line from Jeremias that God will raise of “David their king.” What was
Pope Michael's name prior to his election? David Bawden.
“And after this the children of Israel shall return, and shall seek the Lord their God, and David
their king: and they shall fear the Lord, and his goodness in the last days.” [Osee 3:5] Just as the
children of Israel came back to the true worship of God during the Old Testament, so too will Catholics
who had departed from the faith through heresy will come back to the true Church, and the true faith.
Those that hold the true faith will have David as their king. They shall fear God, because they have
been through this great tribulation, and they were unfaithful to their faith.
“In that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, that is fallen: and I will close up the
breaches of the walls thereof, and repair what was fallen: and I will rebuild it as in the days of old.
Behold the days come, saith the Lord, when the ploughman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of
grapes him that soweth seed: and the mountains shall drop sweetness, and every hill shall be tilled.”
[Prophecy Of Amos 9:11,13]
The Lord says, “repair what was fallen: and I will rebuild it as in the days of old.” So what was
fallen? The sacraments have been taken away from us, confirmation, penance, Extreme Unction, Holy
Eucharist, Holy Orders, baptism is not taken away completely, for there is baptism of desire, blood, and
baptism of necessity. It states in the Prophecy of Amos that “Behold the days come, saith the Lord,
when the ploughman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed: and the
mountains shall drop sweetness, and every hill shall be tilled.” God is going to restore the Sacraments.
Without water it is not long for the body to die, so too does the soul quickly die when grace is taken
away. (i.e. Mortal sin)
“And a throne shall be prepared in mercy, and one shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of
David, judging and seeking judgment and quickly rendering that which is just.” [Isaias 16:5]
What is a tabernacle? The Catholic dictionary states that it is a portable sanctuary of the

3
Hebrews in the desert. If you were stranded in the desert without water, food, and shelter. How long
will you last? Not long at all. The desert signifies a tribulation. For a desert is a very uncomfortable
place.
“And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her
feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and
was in pain to be delivered. And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she
might fly into the desert unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time,
from the face of the serpent.” [Apocalypse 12:1-2,14]
(Catholic Commentary: A woman... The church of God. It may also, by allusion, be applied to
our blessed Lady. The church is clothed with the sun, that is, with Christ: she hath the moon, that is, the
changeable things of the world, under her feet: and the twelve stars with which she is crowned, are the
twelve apostles: she is in labour and pain, whilst she brings forth her children, and Christ in them, in
the midst of afflictions and persecutions.)
It then states in the Gospel [Acts 15:15-17]: “And to this agree the words of the prophets, as it is
written: After these things I will return, and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down;
and the ruins thereof I will rebuild, and I will set it up: That the residue of men may seek after the Lord,
and all nations upon whom my name is invoked, saith the Lord, who doth these things.”
But how does David and the name Michael connect to the papacy biblically? “And to the angel
of the church of Philadelphia, write: These things saith the Holy One and the true one, he that hath the
key of David; he that openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth, and no man openeth: I know thy works.
Behold, I have given before thee a door opened, which no man can shut: because thou hast a little
strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will bring of the synagogue
of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie. Behold, I will make them to come and adore
before thy feet. And they shall know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my
patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of the temptation, which shall come upon the whole world
to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no
man take thy crown. He that shall overcome, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God; and he
shall go out no more; and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my
God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and my new name.”
[Apocalypse 3:7-12]
I am going to break up my explanation into five sections.
(1) “These things saith the Holy One and the true one, he that hath the key of David; he that
openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth, and no man openeth: I know thy works.” Since jurisdiction
comes directly from the Pope, the pope alone is the source of jurisdiction. You need jurisdiction to use
any of the seven sacraments fruitfully. Those who do not submit to the pope cannot give the
sacraments legitimately or save their soul. “Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is
absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” (Pope
Boniface VIII, Encyclical Unam Sanctam, 1302)
(2) “because thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.”
Those who believe that Michael is the Pope are around 50 people world wide.

(3) “Behold, I will bring of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie.”
Traditionalists and Novus Ordoians are not Catholics. For the former hold the heresy of Gallicanism
while the latter hold the heresy of Modernism.
(4) “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of the
temptation, which shall come upon the whole world to try them that dwell upon the earth.” God is
ready to punish the whole world due to their evil lives, sinful lives. God also hates lairs “Lying lips are

4
an abomination to the Lord.” [Proverbs 12:22] Heretics are liars of doctrine, for they do not hold the
Christian doctrine, which is the Catholic Faith. Those that do not hold the Catholic faith in its entirely
and claim to be Christians are liars.
(5) “Behold, I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. He that
shall overcome, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God; and he shall go out no more; and I
will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem,
which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and my new name.” The Pope is the Vicar of Christ,
God's highest representative. Jesus changed Simon's name to Peter. So in honor of that tradition, it is
over a millennium that this tradition had been passed down. The new name that has never been in the
papacy was Michael. This fulfills “which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and my new
name.”
“But I will tell thee what is set down in the scripture of truth: and none is my helper in all these
things, but Michael your prince.” [Daniel 10:21] (Catholic Commentary: Michael your prince...The
guardian general of the church of God.)
On Our Lady's mantle of Guadeloupe there are 46 stars. Oklahoma is the 46 state that entered in
to the Union of the United States. Thus it would be the 46 star on the flag of the United States. Pope
Michael was born in Oklahoma.
I can go on and on...

Can we say that all of this is just a coincidence?


I answer that, no it is Divine Providence.
