“In The Late, Great Planet Earth, Lindsey wrote that he had concluded, since there was no apparent mention of the United States of America in the books of Daniel or Revelation, that the USA would no longer be a major player on the geo-political stage by the time the tribulations of the end times arrived. Lindsey also interpreted from Revelation and prophetic texts that the European Economic Community, which preceded the European Union, was destined (according to Biblical prophecy) to become a “United States of Europe”, with ten members, which in turn he says is destined to become a “Revived Roman Empire” ruled by the Antichrist. The European Union currently has 27 members.
A later book, bearing the title The 1980s: Countdown to Armageddon, implied that the battle of Armageddon would take place in the not too distant future, stating “the decade of the 1980s could very well be the last decade of history as we know it” and that the U.S. could be “destroyed by a surprise Soviet nuclear attack.” The book strongly suggests that the 1980s would see the biblical events of tribulation and end times come to pass.
Planet Earth - 2000 A.D., published in the early 1990s, states that Christians should not plan to still be on earth by the year 2000.
Lindsey’s earlier predictions all assumed that the Cold War would continue indefinitely, and had eschatological significance; he explicitly identified Russia with the apocalyptic figure of Gog. He also assumed that the 1960s counterculture would eventually become the dominant culture, and become the source of prophesied “immorality” that would lead to the establishment of a false religion.”
The late Jeanne said it was going to be 2000. A whole lot of forgotten authors also said 2000 was going to be the end times. Cayce is out. He made all sorts of cataclysmic predictions that were supposed to have started in 1968! Now we’re stuck with the damn Mayan Calender. What’s a millenarian to do?
The Mayans got it wrong. 2012 isn’t going to be the end times, it’s going to be the end of The Times. The New York Times is going to go bankrupt.
How is the Hopey-Changey thing working out for all of us?
