Some dreams and visions on our site were pre-2000 and were Jonah warnings which did not come to pass on time. The sequence of events leading up to the invasion and overthrow of America at that time was delayed from before the tribulation to during and after the tribulation. For astounding proof of this, please listen to the audio with slides in Fall of America; Rise of the Saints. Or get the free videos of the Hidden Manna For the End Times Series.
Leading up to the year 2000 there were many accurate dreams, visions, prophecies and Bible codes of an imminent pre-Tribulation destruction of the U.S. in a world war. This begs the question, "How could they have been true since they did not come to pass?" God can change or delay what He speaks as a warning through prophets, dreams, visions or through His Spirit in many ways. However, God will not change what is written in His Word. (Psa.119:89) For ever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven. His Word is likened unto a rock, immovable, and unchangeable. Because of this fact, the Word is a sure prophecy of what will actually happen and when. (2Pe.1:19) And we have the word of prophecy [made] more sure; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed.... Biblical history is also a sure prophecy because it must be repeated.(Ecc.1:9) That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Both the Word and history show us two delays in the fall of the U.S. In the case of a delay, the judgment will ultimately come to pass as and when the Bible says it will.
Israel and the U.S. were chosen by God to represent Him to the world but fell into apostasy, so in an attempt to turn them He appointed the same chastening and ultimate desolation to them. These two nations have a common history regarding this. Gordon Lindsay, founder of Christ for the Nations, discovered a unique phenomenon and I have since built upon it. From the time the northern ten tribes rebelled under Jeroboam and became independent of Judah, one or the other was at war almost every seventeen years for a period of fifteen cycles, after which Israel (690 B.C.) and then Judah (682 B.C.) were conquered by the Assyrian Beast. (2Ki.18:10) ...In the sixth year of Hezekiah, which was the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. (11) And the king of Assyria carried Israel away unto Assyria... (12) because they obeyed not the voice of the Lord their God ... and would not hear it, nor do it. (13) Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib king of Assyria come up against all the fortified cities of Judah, and took them.
The U.S. also has been at war almost every seventeen years, not that the war started exactly on the seventeenth year. This started from the formation of the thirteen original states until the fifteenth cycle, which was the Grenada/Nicaragua conflicts in 1983/84. Even the exceptions are common to both nations. In the sixth and tenth cycle there was no war for Israel nor the U.S. The only possible exceptions to the parallel are that Israel appears to have had a devastating famine in the forth cycle instead of a war and I have found no record for a war in their thirteenth cycle. The cycles are probably more exact than our knowledge. Either way, no sane person could think that this is anything less than our sovereign God repeating history to warn us.
From the Grenada/Nicaragua conflicts in 1983/84 until the year 2001, is the sixteenth, seventeen-year war cycle. During this period Israel and Judah were conquered. Although the U.S. started the War on Terror right on time on 10-8-01 with the bombardment of Afghanistan, she came through the sixteenth war cycle and was not conquered. Why? (First, I think that it is amazing that the U.S. has been conquered since 9-11-01 by the spiritual beast and even now is not the nation we once knew.) Physically speaking, it is no accident that JerUSAlem escaped being attacked by the Assyrian beast at this time in its cycle. (2Ki.19:31) For out of JerUSAlem shall go forth a remnant, and out of mount Zion they that shall escape.... (32) ...the king of Assyria, He shall not come unto this city.... (34) For I will defend this city to save it.... Some might think that "USA" being in the heart of the name JerUSAlem is just a gimmick or coincidence but we will see, as goes Jerusalem, so goes the U.S.A. Their judgment is delayed together. Later they are later both attacked and divided by the world beast in the Day of the Lord. The Lord returns with His saints and saves a remnant of each from the beast armies fighting on their soil.
Just after the fifteenth cycle for the U.S.A., around 1987, God showed me He would delay the judgment, although I did not know it at the time. Sometimes in Scripture the Lord has a prophet act out in his own life a prophecy of what is about to come to pass. I realized only afterward that this happened to me. I was experiencing pain and passing a lot of blood. The thought came to me that it was cancer. A day or two later I went to a Christian bookstore that I normally did not go to because there was one much closer. Two sisters, who were running the store, said that they were praying for ministers that they knew. The Lord told them that I was having a battle with cancer but that I would win. There was no way they could have known this for I had told no one. Even my wife didn't know and only found out later by accident. I thanked them and told them that it was a confirmation.
I went home and asked the Lord for a word from His Word. Without looking, I opened my Bible and put my finger on a phrase in 2 Kings 20:1, "thou shalt die, and not live". I recognized that I was being tried to see if I would depart from the Word. I said "Lord, I don't accept this because it is not according to Your Word to me in 1 Peter 2:24, 'by whose stripes ye were healed'. You have taught me not to accept what is contrary to Your covenant with me". (I now know that this was not only a trial from the Lord but also my response was pleasing to Him.) I said, "Lord, I ask You to give me another Word according to Your covenant with me". Without looking I flipped the Bible open and put my finger down on a phrase in Psalm 118:17. It said, "I shall not die, but live", the exact opposite! The chance of that happening is too fantastic to understand. I rejoiced and thanked the Lord. I had a faithful brother, Mike Burley, pray over me and ignored the symptoms until they were gone. God delayed my destruction as a type for the delay in the JerUSAlem destruction.
Here is a confirmation to the delay. "Thou shalt die, and not live" was first spoken to King Hezekiah in the year that Judah fell but JerUSAlem was spared. He then sought the Lord on the grounds that he was a righteous man, and Isaiah prophesied a delay in judgment for himself and JerUSAlem. (2Ki.20:6) And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
This delay was also for "David's sake", which is also my name. Both Hezekiah and I were used to prophesy a delay in the fall of JerUSAlem. This meant a delay in the destruction of the U.S. in the sixteenth war cycle before the year 2000, which is when the destruction was prophesied.
Hezekiah asked for a confirmation to this saying, "What shall be the sign that the Lord will heal me, and that I shall go up unto the house of the Lord the third day?" Notice that, because God lengthened the time, we are now at the third thousand-year day from Christ when those who are righteous, like Hezekiah, whose name means "strengthened of the Lord", will go "up unto the house of the Lord". Two things can be seen from this. First, the First-fruits Man-child is caught "up unto the house of the Lord" to rule on the morning of the third day (Ex.23:16,19; Hos.6:2-3).
Then, as we will see, the saints who sleep and those who "are alive, that are left" will be caught "up unto the house of the Lord" in the midst of the fall of the U.S. to the beast armies. The confirmation sign that was given to Hezekiah was that the shadow of the sundial went backward ten steps or degrees (2Ki.20:10-11). At this time the Jews, the Romans, and Egyptians changed their calendars from 360 to 365.25 days a year. It was as momentous a time as when Joshua commanded the sun to stop. Hezekiah was anointed to write ten of the Psalms between 120 and 134. They were called: songs of "Ascent" or "degrees" in honor of the ten degrees that God set back time. Now here is the important thing; don't miss it. Father lengthened the time or delayed the end when the Assyrian beast was coming to conquer JerUSAlem during the sixteenth cycle of the seventeen-year war cycle.
In 2002, the symptoms of death suddenly returned as what friends in the medical field thought was cardiovascular disease. I was having pain in my chest and my right side was always cold due to lack of circulation. My wife reminded me that it had been fifteen years since my healing. I thought of the fifteen-year extension of Hezekiah's life. I asked the Lord if that part of Isaiah's prophecy was also for me and that now I, too, would die. I not only felt I heard a "yes" from Him but three dreams given to people in our assembly at that time that showed I would die of a heart attack. These people knew nothing of my symptoms or a fifteen-year extension. As I thought on these things I told the Lord that I saw no reason to change my confession of His promises of healing. I heard the devil's threats but called his bluff and acted out my faith by jogging around our area. He then told me that I would fall down on the side of the road and never make it home. He gave up after a while and the symptoms gradually left. After, the Lord impressed me that in this trial of my faith I had acted out a second delay in the fall of the U.S.
The Bible Code by Michael Drosnin, on page 105, reveals that the code accurately showed World War II, stating, "The year the war began, 1939, is encoded with both 'World War' and 'A. Hitler', and the word 'Nazi' appears in the same place". On pages 123 through 125, we see that the code warns of a future "atomic holocaust" and "world war" encoded for two years together, the Hebrew year 5760, which was from September 1999 to September 2000, and the Hebrew year 5766, which is from October 2005 to September 2006. On page 135 is stated, "'Russia' and 'China' and 'USA' all also appear with 'World War'." On page 166 is stated, "'Delay is written in with 'World War'." Where the years 2000 and 2006 are encoded, the hidden text states, "I will delay the war." (Notice the two delays in the World War in which Russia and China attack the U.S.A.) It is even written in with the "End of Days". Every time "End of Days" appears in the plain text of the Bible, the word "delayed" appears in the hidden text. On page 127 is stated, "Armageddon in the years 2000 and 2006". Since Armageddon is after the seven-year tribulation the 2006 date must have been delayed for the Tribulation has not yet started.
Both Joel and Amos likened the threatened Assyrian beast invasion of JerUSAlem to an army of locusts that burned the pastures of the wilderness and threatened the city (Joel 1:19-20; Amos 2:5, 7:1). Locusts obviously prefer to eat pastures rather than burn them; nor do they burn cities. This army was referred to as a "strong people" and "men of war" (Joe.2:5-7). Joel speaks of this locust invasion in chapter two, and there is a clear end time fulfillment in chapter three where he describes it with the words, "In those days...I will gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat" (3:1-2), which clearly identifying the battle of Armageddon. This totally agrees with the Bible codes that the nuclear attack and invasion of the U.S. by Russia, China, etc., will be in this last war, which is after the Tribulation. Joel said this judgment would be at the "latter rain" and Amos at the "latter growth". These prophecies are clearly for our day since the "latter rain" is in our day and it brings the "latter growth".
Through intercession these prophets delayed the invasion of JerUSAlem by the "nations" twice (Joel 2:17; Amos 7:1-6). (Amo.7:1) Thus the Lord showed me: and, behold, he formed locusts in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth.... (2) And it came to pass that, when they made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord God, forgive, I beseech thee: how shall Jacob stand? for he is small. (3) The Lord repented concerning this: It shall not be, saith the Lord. Leading up to 2000, the prophets were declaring judgment would come to the U.S. and many were interceding just like Amos. Notice that because of the immaturity of God's people, they would not spiritually survive the judgment, so He delayed it. Then in verses 4 through 6 God threatened to destroy the land by fire. Amos again interceded with the same words and God delayed a second time. History must repeat. This delay happened again in 2006 when the saints interceded. "That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done" (Eccl.1:9).
The third time that God spoke to Amos He declared that He would not spare the apostates among His people. (Amo.7:7) Thus he showed me: and, behold, the Lord stood beside a wall made by a plumb-line, with a plumb-line in his hand. (8)....Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumb-line in the midst of my people Israel .... The Lord stood beside a wall, symbolizing separation, which is the meaning of sanctification or holiness. The wall was made with a plumb-line, which was in the Lord's hand. A plumb-line measures straightness according to the law of gravity. In other words, He will set His plumb-line in the midst of His people to judge their straightness and holiness according to the Word. Those who do not measure up will be destroyed. Justice will replace grace after the Tribulation when the U.S. is invaded. Then the Lord said, "I will not again pass by them any more" (8). In other words, He would not delay judgment a third time. Two days after I got the above revelation a sister gave me a book, The Heavens Opened, by Anna Rountree. I quote from a vision on pages 73-74 as confirmation of the plumb-line judgment.
"Look", He continued, gesturing toward the ground in front of us within the sheepfold. The area opened to reveal the world spinning some distance beneath us. As I looked at the globe, I heard huge footsteps, as if giants were walking, shaking the earth. The ground of earth trembled, and mountains began to break apart. "Look again", He said, gesturing above Him. Heaven opened and I saw something dropping from the center of the bright angels. "What is it?" I asked. "A plumbline", He answered. The weighted plumbline dropped from heaven through the sheepfold to the earth. As the plumbline reached earth...fire came out of heaven and traveled the plumbline, passing before us and sweeping down the line to earth. Suddenly the whole world was aflame.
Notice in the plumbline war the Lord will judge the "whole world" with fire, again identifying the last world war which involves Armageddon. The "giants...shaking the earth" are the ruling world kingdoms and when the "mountains", also representing these kingdoms, "began to break apart", these once united kingdoms will be torn apart in a one world civil war. At the beginning of this God will check His "sheepfold" with His plumb-line to see who measures up to sanctification. The righteous, symbolized by Anna, will escape the flood of wrath in the ark of God but the apostates will be destroyed.
In Amos 8:1-3 God repeated, "I will not again pass by them any more," and then told of how large this war would be by saying, "the dead bodies shall be many; in every place. " The plumb-line war is obviously a world war. As we will see, the fall of the U.S. will come with the sun being darkened by a nuclear world war. (Amo.8:9) And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day. Amos is plainly speaking of the last world war. At that time all of the sinners of God's people who thought they would escape will be destroyed. (9:10) All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, who say, The evil shall not overtake nor meet us. These are part of the world religious harlot who will be destroyed by the world beast because of the blood of the saints. (Rev.17:16) And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her utterly with fire. A remnant from all nations will escape this Day of the Lord to be ruled by the saints for the millennium.
There is a connection between the last revelation and the following revelation. As we saw, the Assyrian beast was delayed in their attack on JerUSAlem, as a type of the end time world beast kingdom's delay in their attack on the U.S.A. and Jerusalem. Nineveh was the head of the world-ruling Assyrian beast, as a type of the U.S. being the head of the world-ruling U.N. beast of our day. The harlot who rode the world beast of Revelation 17 also represents the U.S. ruling over the U.N. After the Tribulation, the beast destroys the U.S. harlot. The world beast threatened to destroy Nineveh but this was delayed through Jonah's warning just as the judgment of U.S. was delayed through the modern day Jonahs' warnings. The Hebrew name "Nineveh" is a translation of the Assyrian "Ninua". This is their name for Ishtar, the goddess of fertility, written ideographically with the cuneiform sign of a fish within an enclosure and I saw the U.S. in a vision as a fish enclosure.
In July of 1996 I found myself standing in the sky far above the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and I saw the U.S. stretched out before me. My gaze was directed upward where I saw that a veil was stretched over the whole country. Above the veil was a huge bomb that was almost as big as the country, hanging from a string with a bow knot tied in it! Looking back down I saw that the U.S. had turned into what looked like an above ground swimming pool. The outer wall of this pool followed the boundaries of the nation. This enclosure was filled with water, which was teeming with fish. The fish were under the bomb but they could not see it for the veil. It was then that I noticed a fishing pole in my hand. Standing where I was, if I caught the fish, they would be able to see the bomb and be out from under it. My ministry is in the U.S. but I was out from under the judgment of the bomb because of spiritual reasons that I am called to share with others.
The Lord was clearly likening the threat to Nineveh to that of the U.S. As Nineveh's judgment was delayed, so was the judgment of the U.S. Jonah "cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown" (Jon.3:4). God had told Jonah to "preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee" (2) and he did, just as many prophets correctly warned the U.S. of an imminent fall. Even though his prophecy was delayed far past forty days, he was not a false prophet; nor were the prophets who warned the U.S. false. Nineveh repented and God spared them. Most would say that the U.S. did not repent before 2000, but the U.S. is not expected to repent. Only God's people in her are expected to repent and some did. Some filled churches as new believers. Some came out of apostate churches as wiser believers and this is still happening. There is a revival going on, although those who only count their statistics in the apostate churches would never know it.
Jonah knew God would be merciful and that he would be left looking like a false prophet so he fled from this responsibility (4:1-2). You can understand the feelings of the faithful prophets and dreamers who were falsely persecuted for warning the U.S. of her fall before 2000. Many of these warnings will still come to pass but not in their original timing, just as Jonah's prophecy did. God's mercy on Nineveh angered Jonah, probably because Amos, Joel, and Micah had prophesied that Nineveh, ruling over Assyria, would bring Israel and Judah into bondage.
In like manner, the U.S. was spared to bring the people of God into bondage. Blinded by patriotism, Jonah was hoping that Nineveh would be destroyed so that his people would be spared the chastening that God knew they had to have. This tribulation furnace will burn off the wood, hay, and stubble of their corrupt lives. Don't miss this important point: God delayed the destruction of Nineveh at the head of Assyria so that they would bring His rebellious people into bondage and tribulation, symbolized by the fish enclosure. A delay is not a delete. After crucifying the flesh of God's people, Nineveh did fall as the prophet Nahum prophesied. In like manner, God delayed the destruction of the U.S. so that the saints can be brought into tribulation and crucifixion, after which the U.S. will fall. The judgment of the U.S. was delayed from before the Tribulation to after the Tribulation, which is also when the harlot of Babylon, as a type of the U.S., falls to the seven-headed, ten-horned U.N. beast in Revelation. We will give much more proof of this in this chapter.
Although I had the above vision of the U.S. in 1996, the Nineveh connection was not revealed to me until September of 1998. At that time God let me tell our local saints but told me to keep quiet about this revelation nationally until September of 1999. He clearly wanted the warning to get out to those who would repent, before I spread the word that the prophesied judgment would be delayed. When I did share this nationally, many prophets understood and stopped warning. At that time I also told many that the Lord told me that "Y2K will be nothing" and that, too, came to pass as a confirmation of the delay. Several people in our assembly had confirming dreams about the delay.
Pauline was by the sea wall at the Navy base in Pensacola, Florida. She saw a huge bomb falling over the water. Everyone was terrified but the bomb stopped just a few feet above the water and stayed there. This was obviously a delay in judgment that will be concluded at the right time. In another dream:
Debbie saw a red car start running down a hill. Someone got in and turned the key off and stopped the car before it crashed at the bottom. She then saw the car start itself without the key, go down hill, and crash.
The red car is the U.S. in sin. (Isa.1:18) Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Gravity is a law that pulls downward to a sudden crash, so sin is a law that pulls downward to judgment. The Lord has been mercifully delaying this judgment. In rebellion against the Lord, Who is the owner and driver, the U.S. will continue in sin. A car that goes anywhere without its driver will crash. In rebellion, the U.S. will continue to test the law of sin and death unto judgment (Rom.8:2). In another dream:
Curt had remarried his ex-wife, whose name is Helen. They were getting dressed-up, and very excited because they were going somewhere special.
Curt represents the fallen Church who will turn back to their first love, "Helen", which in Greek means "light". Jesus is the Light and the Truth. They will be dressed-up by putting on the Lord Jesus Christ (Rom.13:11-14). They will be very excited because they are "going some place special" - to the kingdom of God.
Then they heard a news broadcast that said a "category five hurricane is coming in one week". They thought this was strange since it was March and not the season for hurricanes.
This means there will be a catastrophic storm of judgment on the U.S. after the seven-year tribulation. God's people are going to return to the light and be dressed-up with the life of Christ during the Tribulation. March is not the time for hurricanes but war. March means "month of Mars", the Roman god of war. It is also spring when "kings go [to battle]". As I write this, God is giving a sign through the U.S. mission to Mars. The ten kings will make war on the harlot of the U.S., as the head of the beast, after the seven years of tribulation.
In the play, Julius Caesar, Shakespeare warned, "Beware the Ides of March" and on March 15 Caesar was assassinated. The U.S. is now the corporate head of the revived Roman Empire that will be assassinated after the seven years. The birth stone for March, until recently, was the bloodstone, also called the "martyr's stone". The U.S. will be judged after the Tribulation in blood for that of the unborn, the innocent, and the martyrs. The celebration of Purim (14 Adar) is in March when the beast, typified by Haman and his ten sons, sought to eradicate God's people but were hung by order of the King, representing Jesus (Est.8:7). March 21 is the vernal equinox when the sun, as a type of the Son of God, rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west. That would make the Lord's Word concerning His coming letter-perfect. (Mat.24:27) For as the lightning cometh forth from the east, and is seen even unto the west; so shall be the coming of the Son of man.
At this time the sun equally divides darkness and light everywhere on earth. When the Son comes, that is exactly what He will do, gather from the whole earth those who live in the light and reprobate those who live in darkness for the flood of judgment. All this clearly indicates that the U.S. will be destroyed after the Tribulation at the coming of the Lord. Babylon was another type of the U.S. ruling over the nations to bring God's people into bondage and tribulation.
John, a friend with a prophetic gift, had a vision of the delay in putting together this end time beast kingdom:
I saw President G.W. Bush trying to repair two hex (6) headed nuts that were stripped out on a wheel. He finally repaired them and started to turn the wheel. Then I saw a can of nails in the center of the wheel and it jammed up and couldn't turn (He wasn't successful before his term ended).
Before President 0bama, George W. Bush was the king of the modern day great eagle of Babylon. The President and the U.S. are symbolized by the head of gold in Daniel's image of the beast in Daniel 2:31-32,38, which is over all the nations in a one world body. Bush was in the process of building an image of a worldwide U.S./U.N./U.R. beast but could not finish during his term. The two hex-headed or six-sided nuts make 66, which represents the scope of the materialistic gold image of the beast. (Dan.3:1) Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore (60) cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
Juan from Barcelona pointed out a code that showed the U.S. as the head of Babylon and Bush as its king: "USA is Babylon 666", and in another he found, "Bush is King of Babylon - our death is his fire". As for the image of gold, much of the world hates the dominion of the U.S. but worships the image of prosperity it enjoys. The U.S. has promised this prosperity to the world if it will follow in its steps, a promise that all now see only God could deliver. The saints will ultimately be commanded to bow to this image at the threat of their lives. (4) Then the herald (preacher) cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages (6)...whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. (7)...all the peoples, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. (8) Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and brought accusation against the Jews.
The nails represent the individual sinners for whom Jesus paid the penalty on the cross. Like the nails, we held Jesus on that cross. There are elect nails yet to be saved and prepared for the Tribulation. Because of this, God has delayed the progress of Babylon. As in the vision, Bush, in his term was only temporarily successful in getting the wheel turning. A wheel is a symbol of the repetition of time. (Jas.3:6) And the tongue is a fire: the world of iniquity among our members is the tongue, which defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the wheel (Greek: "cycle") of nature (Greek: "genesis; birth or beginning"), and is set on fire by hell. The Zodiac and the clock are wheels of time which cycle back to the beginning. "That which hath been is that which shall be". God temporarily delayed the repetition of history of the great eagle of Babylon in the U.S. to bring in and mature the saints. As Amos said, "how shall Jacob stand? for he is small".
Another aspect of the nails stopping the wheel of Babylonish progress is that the "Chaldeans" or Babylonians will come to believe that the Christians are the spoilers of the peace and prosperity of the new world order and will bring "accusation against" them. This will greatly increase under Obama's term. If we did not know what the Word says we might see this as an awesome plan for peace and prosperity. When the wheel begins to turn again, as the fiery furnace of tribulation, it will be because the average man will turn his back while these "trouble-makers" are first persecuted and then quietly put away by the government with one excuse or another. Meanwhile, the U.S. will continue to experience judgments to wake up the elect.
As we can see, some prophecies, dreams, and visions are delayed for various reasons that are stipulated in the Word. Others are prophesying in part (1Cor.13:9), which is part God and part us. And others are what I call "wolf prophecies". Remember the old story about the guy who cried "Wolf! Wolf!" until no one would listen anymore? The devil and/or the flesh can make true prophecies useless by injecting words of imminent and sometimes dated fulfillments that do not come to pass until no one listens any more.
On the other hand, God sometimes does give dates. There are many dates in the seventy-week prophecy of Daniel 9. In Jeremiah 29:10 he said there would be seventy years till the end of bondage in Babylon. Daniel believed and acted on that date (Dan.9:2). Many times these dreams, visions and prophecies must be put on the shelf to see if they come to pass. Since there was a delay in the judgment of the U.S. before 2000, we should suspect that the timing of any prophecies prior to that could be off.
