Pope Francis is being ' credited ' for a recent revival in interest in exorcisms among the faithful & Catholic clergy, a practice that until his appointment as pontiff was largely taboo in modern Catholicism. Dioceses across Europe & Latin American in particular have seen an ' uptick ' in the number of reported ' possessions ' & many have responded with increased training. Francis does not shy from mentioning ' the Devil ' unlike his modern predecessors. In his addresses, he often warns about ' the devil’s temptations ' & educates Catholics on how to avoid them. Francis & the Vatican are endorsing a weeklong ' exorcism conference ' at the Pontifical University in Rome being attended by 160 priests from around the globe, according to Catholic Online.
' Devil possessions ' are said to take many forms. In some cases, those said to be possessed obsess over an object or task ; in other cases the victim will appear to speak in forgotten languages. The practice of exorcism isn't a strict set of actions or prayers , but rather allows ' the exorcist ' to use what pre-approved methods are needed to free a person from ' a possession '. Pope Francis said in a Mass just before ' Halloween ' last year “ This generation & many others , have been led to believe that the devil is a myth , a figure, an idea, the idea of evil . . . But the devil exists & we must fight against him ”

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - Pope Francis is re-popularising the ' medieval ' practice of ' Exorcisms '. A topic that has been largely taboo in modern Catholicism prior to his appointment , the Pope is leading a resurgence of this practice that is rooted in the church's ' false teachings & sorceries ' that hearken back to the ' Dark Ages ' . It's yet another of the many forms of false & ' demonic worship ' adopted by the Roman Mother Church & that find their origin in ancient Babylon !!!
God's Word speaks extensively of the evil & enduring legacy ancient Babylon has had on mankind. In bible prophecy ' Babylon ' has 2 separate & distinct , latter day fulfilments . . .
1 ) The ' LITERAL GEO-POLITICAL ' fulfilment is the unprecedented bloodshed & chaos unfolding in Iraq ( the ancient territory of Babylon ). These events will culminate in a ' cataclysmic destruction ' of the Iraqi nation when Iran & Russia soon invade ( enroute to Saudi Arabia & ultimately Israel ). It is vividly fore-told in a vision in Isaiah 21 wherein it says " Babylon ( Iraq ) is fallen , is fallen ; & all the ' graven images ' of her gods he hath broken unto the ground. " Exactly as we are witnessing in 2015 !!!
2 ) However , the ' SYMBOLLIC / SPIRITUAL ' latter-day fulfilment of Babylon is the rise ( & coming destruction ) of the great apostate ' daughter of Babylon ' the Roman Catholic Mother Church , whose wicked ways & ultimate destruction are spoken of ' unmistakably ' in both Isaiah 47 & Revelation Ch's 17 - 18. It is Papal Rome that is emphatically described in Revelation 17v5 as " MYSTERY , BABYLON THE GREAT , THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS & ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH ". In 2015 , as we see Pope Francis re-popularise these ancient Babylonian ' sorceries ' such as ' Exorcisms ' & ' devil/satan ' worship , we know ' the day ' is fast approaching for God's final judgments to be executed upon this oppressive & ungodly false religion & upon all it's ' harlot daughters ' who teach her corrupt doctrines. " Come out of her , my people , that ye be not partakers of her sins , & that ye receive not of her plagues. "
REVELATION 18 v 2 - And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying , Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen & is become the habitation ' of devils ' & the hold of ' every foul spirit ' & a cage of every unclean & hateful bird. For ' all nations ' have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, & the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her & the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying , Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins & that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven & God hath remembered her iniquities . . . v23-24 for thy merchants were the great men of the earth ; for by ' thy sorceries ' were all nations ' deceived '. And ' in her ' was found the blood of prophets & of saints & of all that were slain upon the earth. ( Papacy's long history of persecution of believers ... ie. inquisition etc )
