Everything looked like it had matched perfectly.
Hi msboone, and welcome to the board! I want to thank you for your kind words.
Yes I am familiar with the teachings of Ted Montgomery, and I have visited his web-site - but he like many others, I am sad to say; expected to see things according to their "own thinking", and really lost focus on the "road signs" that still make the ENP(I) theory very valid.
I'm certainly not saying that the ENP(I) is "definately" the 7 year confirming time period of the Covenant with Many spoken of in Scripture (actually the 1995 Barcelona Process is the actual Covenant with Many; that relates to the 7 year time period of the ENP(I) ) - but I believe with all my heart that it is. Until I see something that can totally rule it out at this point - and by this I mean something like the death of the man who is responsible for putting the ENP(I) together, by being associated with it by Article (666) of a 10 Nation Confederacy - then I will continue to believe that it is indeed the "confirming" time period, and this same man will come back to power in some capacity - and for 42 months, just as Scripture mentions.
Right now, we just have to wait and see. But the main problem that I see right now are those who have thrown this theory out all together - and that because they have expected to "see" things; with their own understanding, and Scripture doesn't indicate that some of the things that they have expected to see, would necessarily be manifested.

Wickus does indeed have his own web-site, but neither Wickus or I can take credit for discovering this theory. That credit belongs to Herb Peters - who was the Owner of this web-site, and has now gone on to be with the Lord. Wickus took it upon himself to continue to believe in the "road signs" that were given, and as have a few of us, such as: Adamantine; Passerby; Hisown; Justasheep; Imightdecrease; Romalynnstar; Brenda; Jackie.......and a few others who greatly contribute to providing continious updates to support, and edify the Body of Christ, as fellow Watchers continue to diligently seek the Return of Christ - and I thank God for them.
We must remember that Christ said that He would Return at a time that we think not - and questions will He find faith on the Earth at His Return. Time will continue to go on, just line in the Days of Noah. If everything could be "seen"; and our understanding would be so crystal clear, as far as knowing when, and exactly how these things are to happen, and/or take place - then why does Scripture also indicate that in the Last Days - "many will fall from the faith"?
When things really begin to kick off, it will come in like a flood. It will be so swift, devastating,and destructive, that it will catch many by surprise.
Question is.......Will they fall because they lean on their own understanding?
