    607 and 1914 never really interested me.

    Is it perchance just man-made chronology?

    My faith hinges squarely on the Messiah,

    Not something that happened to Zedekiah.

    2520 years or 25 years or 20 years

    Are but a blink to Him whose time nears

    So, let us rejoice and be happified

    That soon our tears will all be dried.

    Not bad for a Monday morning.

    (Except for the "happified".)

    I like your Poem

    that showed show em

    You don't rely on men

    Your faith is a perfect 10

    These made up dates may come and go

    And some may think God is slow

    I'm glad I know someone like you

    I'm glad I know someone so true

    knowing you for me is good Luck

    cause when God's day comes I know I'm .......................

    Hi snowbird.

    Ray Franz' book crisis of conscience , has an interesting chapter "predictions and presumption", which deals with the history of the 2520 years thing.

    It was John Aquila Brown, 50 years before Russell, who started thinking that way.

    NHBarbour, a 7th day adventist, started publishing a magazine, pointing to 1914, and Russell, seeing it, adopted the same idea.

    Without getting too bogged down in studying, which I dont particulaly like ( not got the time),

    its interesting to wiki "Second Great Awakening"


    It seems that in the USA, there were a lot of people looking for the 2nd coming of Christ........

    and ended up searching for signs and secret codes. DAN BROWN would have been in his element.

    Hi, Jean-Luc.

    How'd you know I had that chapter of COC in mind when I composed that?

    I'm re-reading the book for the umpteenth time.

    Thanks for responding.

    Hi Syl:

    Pre-1975, there were some zealous brothers who, when invited into the homeowner's residence, would wax eloquent and long on the above, even illustrating on huge sheets of paper The Divine Plan of the Ages.
