The remarkable fulfillment of Biblical prophecies stands in stark contrast to
the failures of modern prophets. Malcolm Bessent predicted that sometime between
1975 and 1980 New York City would be flooded and uninhabitable. It didn’t
happen. David Bubar predicted that by the middle 1980’s Russians and Americans
would try to colonize the moon. It didn’t happen. Jeanne Dixon predicted that
Jawaharalal Nehru would only be prime minister for 5 or fit the most 7 years.
He was prime minister for 14 years. She predicted that the United States would
have its first woman President by 1990. It didn’t happen.

Olof Jonsson said that by 1980 internal combustion engines would be outlawed in
all major American cities. He said that by 1990 major cities would ban private
cars and emergency vehicles would be required to use electrically powered
vehicles. Neither event happened. A newscaster named Criswell predicted that a
woman would assassinate Castro on August 9, 1970; that new islands would appear
in the Pacific after a volcano in 1971; that polygamy would be legal in North
Dakota in 1985 and that in 1985 Texas would be divided into 3 states. None of
these things happened.
