Speculations are all about. And one of the targets of the rumors is the Pope of the Catholic Church-. By a large estimate the Pope possibly being the Antichrist revolves around Revelation 17:9 which declares: "This calls for a mind With wisdom. The 7 Heads are the seven Hills that surrounds the city..." It connects US to Rome- the city With the 7 Hills and the current Pope being descent of Rome. Therefore It is hard to believe Pope Francis is the Antichrist for a simple Reading: "every Spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ hás come in the flesh is of God. .." First John 4:2; And Pope Francis does not deny Jesus.
