Predictions for the United States
In the days immediately after the swearing in ceremony, I see a stepping up of assaults against the North Dakota Standing Rock protesters. It will last for at least 3 weeks, possibly 5 or more, before those in authority step back to examine other strategies. Many will seek ways to circumvent the decision by the Corp of Engineers and go ahead with completion of the pipeline.
For the year of 2017, I see the US economy starting off well in the winter and spring months with only a few “not too worrisome” economic ups and downs happening until the summer of 2017. The general public will not be aware of much of this. As the US exits summer, greater economic ups and downs will happen. The economic road in the last few months of 2017 will become rocky indeed. By the end of 2017, many will be worried because of economic instability starting to be clear and visible to more than just a few. The year will end with a general feeling of “getting a little beat up.”
Gasoline prices at the pump will slowly begin to climb at the beginning of the year, but will level off through the spring. By mid-Summer, I see a slight drop before the beginning of Fall when I see gas prices begin to rise again. I’m seeing a range from $2.40-$2.80/gallon coming back in 2017, although it’s fluctuation could still be all over the place. What I definitely see is it not staying at the level it is now. Gasoline prices are going up.
Alternative energies in the US, will not get a lot of government support, and so these companies will call on the people of the US to help the industries grow. This call from those people in the industry will help generate some popular support, but the general population are also going to be dealing with the beginning of having less spending power. Those industry leaders who call for finding ways to streamline or lower the costs for people will keep a steady business pace. Some areas of R&D will slow down because of budget cuts.
2017 will see a continuing growth of personal involvement in grass-roots efforts and activism. More people will seek ways to become more active in influencing directions the country goes.
For the US, during 2017, I see the potential for some mostly small earthquake activity in Arkansas, related to the fracking in Oklahoma.
The topic of extraterrestrial activity will get attention in the central to Midwest states.
A town in western Florida will have a wonderful event happen. Somewhere around Quincy, FL area. I don’t see what it is, but it will make them delighted and happy.
2017 is not the year that affordable health care coverage in the US will be made unavailable for many people. That’s 2018.
In general, in the US, we will see more extreme weather events in 2017. Most of it will be during January thru May.
The Pope will travel more in Europe in 2017. I also see him making a trip to South America and a potential trip into central Africa. His message will be consistent with his overall message so far. He is seeking to give hope to people.
In 2017, there will be little progress for peace in the Middle East. Some cease fire agreements will happen, but eventually they will be broken.
In general, India’s economy will stay at the level it is now. I don’t see much growth, if at all. It won’t get worse, though. India will be waiting to see how other countries go with regards to the new presidency in the US, so they won’t be taking risks in their economic progress. Ideally, India would do better not waiting to see how the US goes, but step forward to take a lead in economic directions. This next 50 years is India’s half-century and India has the potential to become a stronger leader than it currently is in the world’s economy. However, the poverty in India will continue to be a very big problem for people for decades to come. I’m not seeing progress for the general health care conditions. But, I do see progress in the decades ahead in the area of education – especially in the 2020’s.
Minor progress will be made in the field of archaeology around the world. I don’t see any significant discoveries in 2017. However, there will be further understanding and expansion of those discoveries already made. Archaeological discoveries in Egypt will not progress that much, or as much as many want.
China’s economy will continue to grow through the 1st half of the year. It will become rocky during the 2nd half of the year making Chinese government officials nervous. The Chinese economy in the 2nd half won’t be bad, but it won’t perform as many hoped it would.
In 2017, Japan’s economy will continue to be stable and a good place to invest.
2017 is not the year of direct dangerous activity from Russia.
Canada will be a productive nation in 2017. I see much good energy and good progress for Canada in 2017.
2017 will be another difficult year for Great Britain. There will be more governmental upheaval (around April-July) which will cause the country to “stumble” some. In time, it will stand back up, but it will take more than just 2017.
Australia will have fires to deal with in 2017, with at least one that is massive in size. The economy in Australia will be strong and stable throughout the year, but I don’t see much growth. However, I don’t see it going down unless its a very small amount – still strong though.
More to come
Because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had any opportunities – that’s why I haven’t gotten my 2016 predictions up yet.
I don’t see ***a lot*** of change happening on a Global scale comparing 2015 to 2016. By this I mean, I don’t see many major events making large changes from what we have in 2015. A few – but not many.
What I do see for 2016 more often is a continuation of that which has already been brought forth in 2015.
In general, the World’s economy will overall stay steady as she goes. The economy at the beginning of 2016 will pretty much be where we are at the end of 2016. However, there will be some economic problems or scares related to Europe, up and down, but ending at a stable place at the end of 2016.
India’s economy is still slowly growing and I see it continue to grow in 2016. China’s economy, too, will grow, but not as strong as India. Although, we won’t get any word of it, the country with the initials, NK – I see their economy getting worse. Sad indeed. The citizens there will suffer. The citizens of NK need our prayers, as they always have. The leader(s) don’t see a need to do anything about it.
Russia’s economy will fluctuate some because of their ties with Europe and Asia both. They’re invested in the countries around them, as well as their own. Some of their “investments” in other countries will bring bad results.
For the most part, except for the continued warring, the economies of the Middle East are stable, because they’re based on the sale of oil in the regions. Moving away from oil in any way will trigger some fluctuation, but in 2016 I don’t see any major disasters for any countries based on oil.
The US economy will continue as is it in 2015. At the end of Spring, 2016, I see an announcement from Washington that will help boost the economy more, even.
A Presidential Year in the US
As of December 29, 2015, a total of 1,458 candidates had filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. No, that’s not a typo. 1,458. That’s the total of all party candidates, independent. write-in, and non-affiliated candidates. Some of these were “meant as jokes”, but the majority are real people. There will not be 1,458 names on the ballots, because not all candidates register or meet the requirements to be on the ballots in all states.
As we get closer to the November, 2016 elections, we will see more and more what we can term as -“bizarre behavior” in our government officials. It’s hard to describe what it will be, but that word – “bizarre” – will be used by many.
What I see is that the diversity of opinions and beliefs in the U.S. can do nothing but remain the status quo. I’m seeing no success by any candidate in unifying the country. Every person who has their own opinions and beliefs thinks they’re opinions are right and the other people need to wake up to it. With this way of thinking, there is no middle ground where people are willing to come together.
I see extremism in American politics being the theme of the November, 2016 campaign trail.
The economy for the US will stay stable and doing well. The gasoline prices will remain at a lower level, but look for them starting to inch up around the end of the summer. I’m seeing a “flash” of an average price around $2.25 being the high by the end of the year. This will be an average with some areas of the nation being only slightly higher. What I’m also seeing is how volatile this price is – moved by human consciousness which moves like flocks of birds in the sky.
I’m seeing several medical breakthroughs announced in 2016. These will get little press time. What is getting press will be several more mass shootings happening sometime around May. Prayers can help to curb, minimize and even stop some of these shootings.
Overall, 2016 won’t be a “great” year for the Midwest large-scale farming or the US car industry. Although starting strong throughout the spring, midsummer will bring downward trends and struggles.
I see the immigration issue in the US as being a mud wrestling pit. There is no clarity and cleanliness to this issue. The politics of this issue will increase the separation of the divided camps. I see no worthwhile progress, just running for office dictating what is said and done. Congress will have another year of passing a low amount of legislation.
The economy will be good in general and overall. Food prices won’t increase much. Local farms will continue to serve their local customers. The drought will hit somewhat, but not as bad as in the past (in general. Different states will have different levels of it hitting.)
I see Africa struggling with similar issues as 2015. I see areas where government officials ignore the needs of the citizens in need, illnesses and diseases getting a toe hold.
I also see other nations reaching out to help African nations and this will keep Africa’s problems from getting too much worse – it won’t remove or solve the problems, but it will help it from getting much worse. A few areas will have serious problems.
Europe’s nation-cooperation will become more a stormy struggle and will require a great deal of hard work. Some of that hard work will come in 2016. The Syrian refugee issues will still be a major issue through the 1st half of 2016. The hugely vast majority of refugees will come to be seen as good citizens in the years ahead. But, it will also be years before the stigma is worn away.
The Middle East
I see an optimistic announcement coming from Washington sometime near the end of spring to mid-summer that a breakthrough has come in negotiations for better cooperation and acceptance among nations in the Middle East. This will be an uneasy breakthrough – and will come from a “compromise” – the definition of this compromise being “when both sides are equally dissatisfied with the results.”
Australia’s economy will not gain but will not lose much either. It is relatively active, but won’t increase, even with the incentives brought in. The problem is the vast amount of foreign investments are going to wait and see what happens, rather than take an aggressive or optimistic approach for 2016. On the plus side, the economy won’t lose that much because of it. Were foreign investments to take a more aggressive approach in vast numbers, Australia’s economy would grow.
Meanwhile, the drought will continue through 2016, as well. I see more potential for fires. Even with this happening, I see Sydney continuing in positive and growing ways. The energy of the city will be more celebratory than discouraging.
They will continue with some major earthquakes in the same old areas – mostly western S.A. Mudslides will accompany the earthquakes. The differences between 2015 and 2016 in so many areas of comment will be almost unnoticeable, except in Southwest S.A. which has a potential large destructive event which would be reported in world news. Prayers for this area will bring the destruction down to a small event – hardly worth mentioning and therefore not by news agencies.
The Pope will be more active in the 1st half of 2016, continuing to be in the public eye, but will stay more close to Rome in the 2nd half with much less visibility and press. His speeches will focus mostly on the poor, needy and suffering people in the world – some about the refugees. His messages will carry some sternness towards world leaders for the recalcitrance towards compassion and helpfulness of many nations’ leaders.
While the world will continue to experience natural disasters, I’m not seeing a hugely world event in 2016. The 2nd of 3 events I saw for August, 2015 has been broken up into smaller, better handled events over a number of areas, including what I think is deep water earthquakes off the coast of N.W Africa. If this does happen as I’m seeing it, it will be in the same area near where the southern tip of Atlantis existed over 12,000 to 200,000 years ago.
Because of the lower fuel costs, there will be less incentives for automakers to proceed with more efficient vehicle production. However, the research into electric vehicles will continue – especially in Japan. In the years ahead, the progress made in Japan, in the electric vehicle batteries will lead the industry, while American manufacturers will do more observing than research. The Tesla company will have some improvements, but Japan’s research is still ahead. Japan’s intention is to move the auto industry further into the electric vehicle direction by 2020. They see the China market – with it’s current pollution problems – and envision Japan’s cars as being a solution for China’s problems along that line. This is in actuality a positive move and will put them ahead of the game again, leaving the American manufacturers playing catch-up in electric vehicles as a solution. The growing China economy and growing spending power, plus China’s growing numbers of younger car buyers will be very open to electric vehicles. There will be a push for this to happen in 2019 and 2020, but will lessen going into 2021-2023. The focus during 21-23 will be on trying to come up with the next generation of technology for electric cars.
At the same time, during these years gas powered vehicles will still have the dominate share of the market. Unfortunately, for American car manufacturers, they are looking to much to the present and past, while Japan’s are looking more to the future.
Medicine and Medical Care
We won’t see much change over all from 2015 to 2016. A few unmentioned breakthroughs in medicine will be announced in a few medical journals. The controversies with vaccines will continue with the same arguments happening on both sides, but little pursuit to solidify any deeper insight or understanding of vaccines and autism. If more medical research were to happen in the field, more would be revealed that hasn’t been understood before. Currently, the status quo is pursued by pharmaceutical industries and the medical community (which doesn’t have research to say anything else.) The opposition to vaccines won’t go away soon, and may get louder until the medical community starts asking more questions about what is possible with vaccines and autism. Research is happening, but only in small pockets and effort is made more to ignore it.
Update: A New Energy
A new type of energy which I’ve been seeing coming into our lives within the next few decades is being delayed. The person I foresaw as spearheading the research is taking a longer approach in his research and therefore could add another 7-8 years before he finally develops his theories. The delay may only move the completion of the research into working models from 2045 or so, to 2050-2052. This also will change the timeline for the world’s beginning to make welcome contact with extraterrestrials, who, more than anything else, are waiting for humans to develop our own technologies to help the planet – technologies in energy that will move us away from polluting, non-sustainable energy sources.
The Spring of 2016 will see a bountiful harvest of local producing small farms. The weather from 2015-2016 will help bring water to the farms. Even though flooded, many areas will benefit from the water for food crops. As mentioned earlier, the large-scale farming operations will have trouble from the same weather. The small farms can recover faster.
2017 is different.
First of all, in the category listings entitled “Predictions” on the right side of this webpage is a listing for “2015”. These are articles I’ve already written which include that which I see psychically ahead for the year 2015. So, there’s more information than what I’ll add here.
Second, there is no more need for a password. The article, More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, is now open for public viewing.
Third, I don’t profess, in any way, to see everything that will happen. I see what I look for in order to see. If I don’t look for it, I don’t see it.
Let’s get going…
Weather: As I’ve written before, the winter of 2015, January & February, now, will be a lot milder…. except for the areas around the Great Lakes, and in the New England states on up through Maine. These are going to be cold winters again. As I write this, there is a bad cold winter coming for Christmas for the Great Lake and New England areas and they’re going to have more on through to mid-March/end of March .
Meanwhile, the rest of the country as a whole will have uncharacteristically warmer weather. Get your snow skiing in early. Start your gardens early. Addendum on 12-27-14: Now I’m seeing a late cold front for the Midwest and Southwest at the end of March, 2015. If you start your gardens early, like I will be doing, be ready to deal with one last cold front at the end of March.
The Economy: There will be some details that will get brought forward in time, but the stock market will have a pretty decent year in 2015 and on into 2016, also. So, the economy is doing well, according to this psychic, and the stock market is doing well enough, also. It’s a mostly good year for investing. We’ll have one bad area of investing, but I’m not seeing what it is, yet. As the year progresses, I’ll keep looking to pinpoint what to watch out for. However, on the whole, it’s a decent year for investing, so let it ride for another year. The one area of investment that I’m seeing that will have a bad year is because of the bad things happening in the industry and the low public opinion. So, let this be a clue to watch for.
Gas Prices: Enjoy the lower prices while they’re here. Of course, they’ll eventually come back up, but we can enjoy the lower prices while they’re here. Their being low is helping people have more spending power which helps the economy. Remember this point, because the opposite is also true. (When the gas prices are high, spending power is reduced greatly which hurts the economy. This has happened before, hasn’t it !) Don’t let the low prices now fool you. Electric cars purchased yesterday, today and tomorrow hands down will be in better position for the future’s gas prices. These low gas prices will not last. The game of pricing gas will bring prices back up.
The Political Scene in Washington DC.: The best metaphor I can use for this particular collection of elected officials is – a car driving on wheels that are half round and half square. There will be a few months of teeth gritting cooperation, and there will be months when all hell breaks loose and they go at each others throats. Then, it will cycle through and happen again. (BTW, have you ever seen a car driving with square wheels? As the talking shrunken head on the Knight Bus in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” said, “Hang on. It’s going to be a baumpy ride.”) You knew that though, right?
Around the Nation: California’s water shortage will be getting worse. And worse. And worse, in the years ahead. What they need to do is plant billions of trees. As I’ve mentioned before, removing trees creates desert drought conditions over time. Putting them back restores a rain equilibrium. It’s not hard to understand, if you study the science of it. Trees act as insulation. They greatly reduce the great fluctuation caused by the heat buildup in the soil to the atmosphere which leads to high pressure which leads to drought.
Texas water drought will not be going away and Texas’s water wars are going to get worse. I use the word “wars” because that’s what it is and what it’s going to become even more. This will escalate on past 2015, 2016 and 2017. The government in Austin will wring their hands with being able to do nothing to get more water for people, while they allow for fracking to continue using greater amounts of ground water from all over Texas.
Midwest: The Midwest will see less rain than they need, but enough to continue to grow some food. Some areas will have enough, others won’t. In general for the area, the food production will be down, because they won’t have enough for all they could grow, but there will be able to keep most farming going. We’ll see some prices rise on food because of lower production. This isn’t news to anyone, but I don’t see the situation getting better. I don’t see it getting worse yet, either, in 2015. SIDE NOTE: If you haven’t started growing your own vegetables, it’s time to start. If you don’t know how, go to Youtube where you’ll find 1000’s of helpful videos that people have uploaded.
Pharmaceutical Industries or rather, the people who run the Pharmaceutical Corporations have slowly been moving in to control the medical fields, including the AMA licensing board. They have pretty much stacked the deck on the AMA, now. Almost all the personnel on the AMA are so far tied in to the Pharmaceutical Industries that there is very little stopping the people running the P.I. from running how medicine is practiced. Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners have a bull’s eye painted on them, and the rest of this decade, they’re the target of the Pharmaceutical Industry lobbies. This I psychically see to be where things are going. Doctors will almost be forced to prescribe drugs for conditions, or risk challenges to their licenses, even when better remedies are suggested. I don’t see good things for the medical field. As hard as it is to believe this, I see it psychically to be what is happening, but not easily seen by the public.
What I do see is that some practitioners will pull together to fight against some of this takeover, but they’ll need people supporting them. If people don’t affect changes via the voting booth, I see the people running the Pharmaceutical Industries controlling the practice of medicine for decades.
For individuals, medical information will be available on the Internet, but even that will be attacked using misinformation and outright lies (yes, it’s what I see psychically, believe it or not). Still, anyone who seeks Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners will find them. Just don’t forget that these people have an uphill struggle sometimes to be of service to you. Ask them about their “battle scars” sometime – in other words – ask them what they’ve faced to practice, and what their outlook is for their future practicing. Then ask them how one can help.
Oil Industry: We’ll see more oil spill accidents in 2015. I see one in Northeast Texas and one in one of the Midwest states – somewhere near the Kansas/Nebraska border. The damage being done by oil companies and their practices in the biggest part of the Midwestern states from Kansas to North Dakota to Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin is absolutely amazingly massive. Those states will suffer from this for this entire century. Very, very few are aware of how massive the damage is.
Natural Disasters: 1. I see the 2nd of 3 major world disasters happening in August, of 2015. The Japanese events of 2011 was the 1st of 3. This one will happen off the coast of Venezuela and the impact of the force will be southward. I go into more detail in the now unprotected article, More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, which I’ve added information to in reverse chronological order through the months I was becoming clear on the information. The earliest dates and information are at the bottom of the article. With this event, I see some potential impact on Florida, but not life threatening. The worst will be a wave of up to 3-4 ft in height – but, keep alert, in case I’m wrong about the height. There is much less danger to Florida than a hurricane would have been, because Florida is protected somewhat by other land masses in the Gulf. The most dangerous areas are the South American north coast line and the islands in the area. The islands northward are in harms way, although not as serious as the Venezuelan coast line, but some. Signs for this event will happen in June and July. I’m 98% sure of this as of this writing. … I see it beginning deep within the Earth – I interpret that as volcano and earthquake and tsunami, all 3. The US will be in a better position to help than so many others, but helpful response will come from all over the world.
Regardless of what I project as what will happen, stay alert to how or if it could get worse. Watch in June and July. Get ready. Prepare.
2. The Madrid Fault: In 2015, the Madrid Fault will only be slightly active. I see the potential for some small earthquakes through the year, but mostly in the 2 and 3 range, and only one possibly in the summer, July, maybe that will get to either a high 3 or at most a 4.
3. California Disasters: Summer forest fires, as usual. The loss of trees just makes things worse for California. I’m seeing potential for one large or a series of smaller earthquakes in the eastern area of Southern California. Not Los Angeles proper, but in the eastern half of Southern California – in San Bernadino County. If it’s not a large earthquake measuring 6.5 or thereabouts, it’s another type of disaster – like an extremely huge fire. But, I think it’s the earthquake. It will be felt from L.A. to the western half of Arizona. Many, many praying can bring this down to a 4 or 5 point earthquake. The maximum it will get is 6.7. I think the epicenter will be just east of Barstow, along Hwy 40.
4. Sunspot Activity: In 2015, it will be stronger than in 2014. Those who follow this will see the summer/fall months producing some very strong sunspots. VERY strong.
5. Hurricanes: The 2015 hurricane season will be moderately active. Currently, I see 3 hurricanes going up the East Coast and 3 Tropical Storms going up the East Coast. South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia will get the brunt of the hurricanes and Tropical Storms. I think 2 of the hurricanes will take most of their force up the coast and out to sea. Florida will have storms, but I’m only seeing 1 Tropical Storm causing serious problems for Florida. That one will be on the west coast of Florida.
The Gulf of Mexico will see a few hurricanes mostly small – almost just Tropical Storms, and going into Mexico and Latin America. Texas will see one storm during the hurricane season, but not a hurricane. I don’t think it will be formed into a Tropical Storm when it comes into the southern area of Texas – Brownsville to Corpus Christi. It will be more like a tropical wave or depression. It will bring rain.
Misc: I see something “odd” washing ashore on the California and maybe, Oregon coasts (mostly California.) If I’m accurate, this will happen in April through June, 2015. It looks like human-source debris of some kind – it would have to be a lot to be noticeable right now, psychically.
Around the World: I’ve focused mostly on North America because most of my readers live in N.A. I’m willing to take a few specific questions about different areas of the Globe – the more specific the question, the more specific the answer. I will choose only a few questions that are sent to me, but I won’t be able to answer all.
In 2015, China will take a more active role in world events. The Pacific Rim countries – I don’t see a lot of drastic or dramatic events happening. There will be news of the area, but nothing beyond the regular events.
The electronics industries of Asia will continue to do well and prosper in 2015. The Japanese Auto Industry will be stable as will the Korean, and the Japanese A.I. will be more stable and better for investments. Both will be worthy investments, though.
The Pope will be even more visible and active in 2015 than he has been so far. He will be traveling and making many very public appearances.
South Africa – in 2015, it will still experience social “growing pains” and struggles. But, slowly it will progress and move forward. I see effort and struggling and slow progress. This is a good thing. Slow progress is more stable than other types of “progress” because more people support it over all.
India will continue to grow in the business arena. India will be a good overseas investment area for long term investments. It will continue to grow for many years.
Finally, from specific areas to the globe.
Global warming is real and will continue to get worse. We’ve not seen the worst of it, yet. I wish I could say the opposite. There is no magic bullet or magic beans. ET’s won’t be saving us. Technology will help and hurt us both. The Earth as a place to live will become worse yet. Remember the analogy of the frog in the pot of water slowly coming to a boil. The frog dies, because it gets used to the water getting hotter. The frog dies, because it does nothing to change things. We are on the road to suffering more than anyone can imagine. I’m sorry. The good news is that the human race doesn’t lay down and let ourselves die. There are many that bring forth innovation and help. Support these.
These are dire words and I’m saying them, because we will need to rely on ourselves, individually, more and more with local centralized organizing serving local people the best. While life seems normal for some, we also know that we’ve been adjusting to the warming. If we were to jump ahead 10 years, we would see a world we didn’t recognize.
HOWEVER, !!! there are things we can do. We can do something about all this today – this year. Ideas are already out there. Actions to take are in place. Ignore those that deny this. Ignore them. They choose of their own free will to deny what is true, in other words- they choose not seeing – to blind themselves and to blind others. There is no changing the hearts of those who desire blindness. Don’t let them blind you. Ignore their words and move yourself forward with knowledge, cooperation, effort and practice. It is said, “Let those who are blind, stay blind. Those who have eyes to see, let them see.” Get your hands dirty in the soil of life. Join others, help, seek understanding. As we seek ways to move forward, we will find ways to move forward.
And remember, God is real, and more than our beliefs can comprehend. God is actively involved in our lives and very much aware of every aspect of all our lives (still beyond our comprehension.) Yet, God never forces His help where there is no open heart that seeks His help. Instead, God does fill the open mind and open heart -that welcome Him – to overflowing.
“No one understands the all of God. No book, no speaker, no story, no anything can ever hold an understanding of all of God. Consequently, no human understands the all of God – not even when we tell others (and ourselves) we do and pat ourselves on the back for being so smart.” (From the Rainbow Cards, ©, 2014, Jodie Senkyrik)
This Pope (Pope Benedict XVI) is very traditional. He believes that strengthening our beliefs in the doctrines of the church are how we grow spiritually. He is a strong spiritual presence, and he’s gotten this belief through studying the church’s doctrines and his own spiritual efforts. This helps those who also believe in Catholic doctrine. It will help those who want to follow the Catholic doctrine. The attrition rate will continue, because there will many who want to go beyond the Catholic doctrine.
The number of people in the church will stay the same because children are being born into the Catholic Church.
This Pope will put a lot of effort into bringing people into the church. He’ll travel to try to strengthen people’s connection to the church – not so much his 1st year, but his 2nd – 4th years. This will happen for about 4 years, until mid-2009 when he will slow down the traveling because of his health. He’ll be in-house at that time. There will be some that become priests and nuns because of his efforts.
However, the problem with the shortage of priests will be solved by having fewer people in the church. He won’t be sanctioning women as priest because he’s traditional. Traditional beliefs will be his core during his tenure. He won’t open up more on the issues of gay marriages, birth control, nor anything more about the sex abuse by priests. His agenda will be to preach the Catholic doctrine as a method to grow spiritually. This will help those who believe this way, because it will help many deepen their Catholic spiritual beliefs.
He won’t be a strong political leader. He knows his years are limited and he wants to focus on his spiritual agenda. His health will suffer in the 5th year. His tenure will last 10-11, maybe 12 years ending 2016-2017.
After this Pope: There will be a man of great spirituality and/or a weak Pope – both within the same person. He will try to open up the church. There will be such internal and some external opposition after about 2-3 years (2019). This will create political conflict within the Vatican organization and those that oppose him will try to find a replacement. There will be one person in the Vatican that spearheads his ouster and works to put someone else in the position of Pope. At this time will come the Anti-Pope. An Anti-Pope is a Pope not elected by the cardinals, but put in place through some other way. There will be 2 Popes. One elected and one chosen. The church as we know it will come to an end. The church in different forms will continue though. (reading of 2005)
