Roman popes change names when they take office as pope. One reason they do it is because they are all liars assuming a false office: so they make up a fake name. Saul began the tradition taking the Roman name of “Paul” upon doing his first lying sign and wonder. Saul struck Elymas the sorcerer blind by the power of a mist [a spirit] and a darkness [demon spirit power to blind others]. This is symbolic of the blind leading the blind. This dark power is the power of “baptism of the spirit of the devil”.
“Saul” manifested power to baptize Elymas in the spirit of the devil; and took the name of the Roman deputy of the country: Sergius Paulus [Paul].
Lucius Sergius Paulus or Paullus was a Proconsul of Cyprus under Claudius (1st century AD). He appears in Acts 13:6-12, where in Paphos Paul, accompanied by Barnabas and John Mark, overcame the attempts of Bar-Jesus (Elymas) “to turn the proconsul away from the faith” and converted Sergius to Christianity.
Sergius Paulus may have been the first of six successive senators named Lucius Sergius Paullus, of Antioch, Pisidia, including one Consul Suffect in 94 and another Consul in 168, the last of whom was Lucius Sergius Paullus, Senator, father of Sergia Paulla, who married Quintus Anicius Faustus, Legate of Numidia and Consul in 198, and had Quintus Anicius Faustus Paulinus, Legate of Moesia Inferior between 229 and 230 or c. 230 to 232.From Wikipedia

In Acts 13, we are seeing games played with “name changes”. Let’s look to see what the gnostics are coding in through hidden secret gnostic occult meanings in this scene related to the pope name change of “Paul”.
Lucius [Lucifer/Luciferian] Sergius [servant] Paullus [humble] as we do the reversal to see the meaning: humble servant of Lucifer/Luciferian.
Paul” takes the name of Lucius Sergio Paullus in Acts 13. So, “Paul” is shown to mean “humble servant of Lucifer/Luciferian”.
This is the name of the Roman governor/deputy of the country.
So, “Paul” is taking the name of the Roman governor/deputy of the country = Roman pope allegory.
Meaning: “Paul” is the new Roman pope ~ humble servant of Lucifer; a Luciferian.
“Paul” takes the name of Lucius Sergio Paullus in Acts 13. So, “Paul” is shown to mean “humble servant of Lucifer/Luciferian”.
“Bar-jesus” is a mockery of Jesus and children of God in and through Jesus Christ. “Bar-Jesus” means “son of Jesus”. This “son of Jesus” is described as a sorcerer, false prophet, and Jew. So, the Luciferians are mocking Jesus Christ and true believers in Jesus Christ in this passage of this gnostic book of Acts.J
Elymas, as you recall [Acts 13], was struck blind and was lead by the hand as a blind man; even as “Saul” on the Road To Assyria was. This is the satanic ministry of the false church of Rome: those struck blind by satan striking others blind by the same spirit; the blind leading the blind.
So, one interpretation of the word picture is that “Saul” is showing himself [in vanity] overpowering Jesus and the sons of Jesus [God]; the followers of Jesus. He is striking the believers in Jesus blind. Deceiving the very elect as a wolf come in sheep’s clothing.
Another interpretation of the word picture is that “Saul” is showing himself as the leader of the false antichrist church of Rome striking blind followers to initiate and lead them into the worship of Lucifer in the mystery religion of Roman Catholicism.
This striking of persons blind by the power of “a mist” [a spirit] and “a darkness” [the dark spirit of satan] is called “the doctrine of the Lord” in Acts 13. This is so clearly a false doctrine.
Taking the name of the Roman governor of the country [pope]. Taking the name “Paul” that is short for “Lucius Sergius Paullus” – humble servant of Lucifer as Pope “Paul”.
In Acts 13, Saul is shown to take the office of pope; renamed Pope “Paul” ~ humble servant of Lucifer [my translation of the meaning of Lucius Sergius Paullus ~ Roman governor/deputy of the country].
Here is why the Romans say they change their names as pope:
But why do cardinals change their names when they are elected pope? There is no strict doctrine requiring it. For centuries men assuming the top job in the Roman Catholic Church kept their birth names.
The first person to adopt a new moniker was Pope John II in 533. Born Mercurio [this was of the name “Paul” was called in Acts 14; means red dragon chief speaker ~ pope a lamb with 2 horns; speaking as a dragon], he felt it unwise to have the name of a pagan god while serving as pontiff. His successors went back to the old way of doing things until Pietro Canepanova was chosen pope in 983. He did not want to use the name of St. Peter, the first pope, and so switched to John XIV. He was followed by Giovanni di Gallina Alba, who retained his birth name and became John XV. After his death in 956, popes began using an alias, known as a regnal name, on a regular basis. The last pope to use his real name was Adrian VI in 1522 (he was also the last non-Italian elected until 1978).
The regnal name is frequently chosen with a purpose. Bergoglio selected Francis in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, foreshadowing his commitment to the poor. Albino Luciani, following after John XXIII and Paul VI, dubbed himself John Paul. He died after a 33-day reign. Wojtyla styled himself John Paul II in his memory.
The most popular name has been John, used by 21 men, even though the most recent was John XXIII. There have been 16 Gregorys and 15 Benedicts. Francis is one of 44 popes to have a unique name.
Acts 14:4 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus. 5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister. 6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus: 7 which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. 9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, 10 and said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? 11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
