16 Eschatological Predictions for 2016

Organized by topic, and not necessarily in chronological order:

The Pope:

1. Pope Francis releases the final document of the 2015 Bishops Synod, an Apostolic Exhortation on the family. I expect this document to permit Communion on the basis of a good conscience, not only for the divorced and remarried, but for many other “marginalized” Catholics. The document might also permit some non-Catholics to receive, such as Protestant or Orthodox spouses of Catholics. The document will be controversial, and conservatives will be upset. It will contain other controversial points, in addition to the rules for reception of Communion.

2. The release of that document will be the beginning of the conservative schism, in which many conservatives (especially traditionalists) falsely accuse Pope Francis of heresy and depart from communion with the Pope and the body of Bishops, thereby falling into schism. The schism will build over time, as more conservatives react to the document, and Pope Francis repeatedly responds, leading more persons to leave the Church. The foundation for this schism has already been laid, in the negative comments and sentiments expressed by conservatives against Pope Francis so far.

3. Pope Francis will teach that atheists and agnostics can be saved (i.e. they can die in the state of grace), without converting to belief in God, and that non-Christians can be saved, without converting to Christianity.

4. Pope Francis will resign from office in late 2016 or early 2017. Cardinal Arinze will be his successor, as Pope Pius XIII.

preparations for World War 3:

5. A power struggle in Iran will result in Hassan Rouhani being both Supreme Leader and President at the same time. This power struggle occurs after the 26 February 2016 elections for the legislature and the council of experts (which elects the Supreme Leader). I think that the current Supreme Leader will be assassinated by Rouhani supporters, and once he rises to power, he will violently purge all opposition.

6. Iran will announce that they have nuclear weapons, having produced weapon-grade uranium in one or more hidden enrichment facilities. They will break free of all sanctions and threaten nuclear retaliation against the West, if we interfere with their nuclear program. They will begin enrichment of weapon-grade uranium at their two known facilities (Fordow, Natanz). This turn of events will encourage extremists in that region of the world, and dishearten their opposition.

7. the Warning of Garabandal (Good Friday, 2016) will strike the unrepentant extremists in the Arab/Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa with great fear. They will make a desperate grab for power. Extremist Muslims will fight against moderates, and the extremists will win.

8. Iran and ISIS will make a pact to join together against the West. They will encourage insurrection in the Arab/Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa which are not yet run by extremists. If they cannot take over one of these Muslim nations by insurrection, they will engage in outright war. This upheaval will consolidate power in that region in the hands of extremists, joining them as one powerful group of nations, setting the stage for World War 3.

Warning, Consolation, and Miracle:

9. the Warning of Garabandal occurs on 25 March 2016, which is Good Friday. The Warning is also the first secret of Medjugorje.

10. the Consolation is the second secret of Medjugorje, occurring on Easter Sunday, 27 March 2016.

11. the Miracle of Garabandal is the third secret of Medjugorje. This event occurs on 12 May 2016. It does not occur in April, as many devotees have incorrectly concluded. The event is threefold: millions of miraculous healings throughout the world; conversion of unbelievers; permanent miraculous signs at places of true private revelation throughout the world.

12. See my book: The Warning, Consolation, and Miracle in 2016 for my detailed predictions on these three blessed events.

13. The U.S. Presidential election will be greatly affected by the Warning, Consolation, Miracle. Some candidates will die of fright at seeing their sins at the Warning. Some candidates will resign in response to seeing their sins, being unworthy of the office. Some politicians throughout the nation and the world will die of fright at seeing their sins. Many voters will change their minds about political issues due to the Warning. The political landscape will be changed severely and suddenly.

World War 3:

14. After the Arab/Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa are united under extremists leaders, primarily led by Iran and ISIS (based in Iraq), they will begin to threaten the West. They will think to start an apocalyptic war, leading to a worldwide Islamic kingdom.

15. World War 3 begins when Iran sends a nuclear bomb, probably by ship, and explodes it in New York City, probably near the U.N.

16. See my book: On World War 3 and World War 4 for my detailed predictions on these two major wars.

Be advised that my predictions are speculative eschatology, based on my many years of study and writing in this field of theology.

Be advised that a certain author, Bruce Cyr of Okotoks, Alberta, Canada, has severely plagiarized my work in eschatology, without any attribution, for his book: After the Warning, 2016. Most of the dates in his book are taken from my work in eschatology, especially my book: The Secrets of Medjugorje and Garabandal. He obtusely references my book by calling it a book he read in 2007 (but without stating the author or title).

    So… about March 15, Fr. Petar Ljubicic will be given the secret and he will announce it on March 23rd ?

    • Ron Conte says:

      10 days before, he gets the secret, so that would be about March 15th. 3 days before he announces it, so that would be about March 22nd. We shall see. We live in interesting times.

  2. missy681 says:

    Why will Muslim extremists not be affected by the Warning and die of fright? What a great consolation that would be if they did!

    • Ron Conte says:

      Only a very small percentage of persons die of fright at the Warning, not in proportion to their sins, but due to the frailty of old age, illness, or injury. The Warning does not solve all problems. It merely calls us to repent.

  3. Vyto says:

    The world receives the most impotant messages from Medjugorje on the 25th and 2nd of each month. We are told that in the future we will know why messages are given on those days and not others. The proposed date of the Warning is March 25, 2016-Good Friday. The 2nd of April, 2016 is the eve of the feast of Divine Mercy..St John Paul II died on April 2, 2005 which was also the eve of the Divine Mercy feast that year. Wouldn’t it make more sense for the Consolation to occur on April 2 to give penitents more time to get to confession? I doubt if all who wish will be able to get to confession between March 25 and March27. Priests simply would not be able to physically handle the demand.

    • Ron Conte says:

      No, I don’t think so. That’s small a basis for that proposed date. Easter Sunday makes more sense because people who repented on Good Friday will be in great sorrow. They will need relief from that sorrow sooner than April 2nd, otherwise those who are weak in faith would be too greatly burdened. And placing these first two events on the two most important days in the liturgical calendar makes a clear statement that the Church is the Ark of salvation.

  4. David says:

    Saudi Arabia just cut their diplomatic relations with Iran, following their Embassy’s attack in Tehran, as the reaction for the execution of a prominent Saudi Shiite cleric.

    As you mention many times in this website, you predict that ISIS & Iran will make a coalition to attack the west. We know that most of the ISIS are Sunnis from Saudi Arabia and other Sunni nations.

    From other sources, I also read many Middle East asylum seekers in Europe, had converted to Christianity, either because of the true calls, or other motives.

    With these ongoing situation in Middle East, especially the Saudi-Iran tensions, instead of forming a Sunni-Shiite Coalition, is this the prelude of a Arab or Islamic Civil War, between Sunni and Shia Moslem ?? An event that will have a big impact to many Moslem countries.

    And with so many asylum seekers converted to Christianity, is these also a sign of Rebirth of Christianity in the Middle East ?? I believe that if they are stay to the new religion, and if the peace have return to the Middle East, they will also return to their homeland.

    • Ron Conte says:

      A number of reliable sources predict the conquest of Europe by the Muslims. And the Book of Daniel predicts that Persia and Media (Iran and Iraq) will lead the nations of that region in war to the West, North, and South (U.S., Europe, Africa). They cannot conduct such an extensive war if they are divided among themselves: Sunni versus Shiite.

      What happens is that the extremist Sunnis (ISIS) and the extremist Shiites (Iran) will unite because extremism erases all the differences between those two sects. They will overthrow the “moderate” governments of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and others. Then, later on, they will develop their own new Islamic sect, which is extremist but not Shiite or Sunni.

  5. Matt says:

    A portion of a recent January 8, 2016, message to Pedro Regis states the following (based on online translator program): “The possession of powerful weapon by men of terror will cause great concern to men.” It certainly supports some of your predictions.

    • Ron Conte says:

      In my interpretation, that message refers to Iran obtaining nuclear weapons. Iran will reveal that they have nuclear weapons this year.
