In 1967, American evangelist Jean Darnell, whilst passing through the UK had a ‘prophetic vision’ about the future of faith in these Islands- particularly regarding Scotland. It was such a powerful image that she and her husband stayed in this country for the next 25 years.

That was forty seven years ago, and so far there is no sign of this prophecy being fulfilled. Actually, quite the reverse, as the church in the U.K.has steadily declined over the past years.We are told Not to treat prophecy with contempt, but we are also told that prophets some-times speak False words. Here is all the evidence http://thisfragiletent.com/2009/09/23/scotland-prophecy-and-jean-darnell/

Is this prophecy spoken by Jean Darnell to be considered true or false by Christians?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions asking for the truth or validity of a particular doctrine or belief (aka Truth Questions), and questions asking Is X a Sin? are not a good fit for our site, due to their subjective nature, and the vast number of possible Christian opinions on such topics. See: We can't handle the truth" – Flimzy, Wikis, bruised reed, Narnian, Caleb
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Please add what the prophecy was (summary). Also, when you ask if it is considered to be true or false, by whom do you mean? –  Wikis Aug 28 at 9:27
The questions here are meant to be self-contained. So you should summarise it and keep the reference for those who want more info / check it is real. –  Wikis Aug 28 at 9:52
Is this prophecy ... considered true or false by Christians? Which Christians? This question is unanswerable in the current form. –  Flimzy Aug 28 at 10:00
In other words: the point of a question (on Stack Exchange sites at any rate) is that one can understand what it asks just by reading the question, without needing to go to a link (which may disappear at some point). –  Matt Gutting Aug 28 at 10:30
@77Clash: Your question has an aggressive "prove this" tone. Your first comment about explaining down votes shows that you expected a negative reaction. Every comment since then has been combative. Now you're trying to turn it into a racial prejudice. Wiki and I are honestly trying to help this site's content be properly focused. You seem to be intent on setting yourself up to be a martyr. I encourage you to adjust your attitude, or at the very minimum, adjust the way you express yourself. –  Flimzy Aug 28 at 13:52

Jean Darnell wasn't told by the Lord when this prophecy will be fulfilled. She was not given any precise years. I read the testimony and she did not say that it will happen in her lifetime. She was also eagerly waiting for it to happen.

A Time of Waiting:

[...] That was twenty-one years ago. And during those twenty-one years I have ministered all over this country, as Pastor Black has mentioned. But I have never gone away up to the north of Scotland. Many times I've said to my husband, I'd just love to go up there and find the fires that God has been lighting.' And he has said, 'Well, why don't you go on? I don't mind, if you want to get ahead of the vision.' You know, it's very easy, when you get a revelation from God, to think you've got to go out and make it happen. That's very unwise – it doesn't bother God much but it sure can be embarrassing for you. You can fall flat on your face. I've tried that a couple of times, and I think I've learned my lesson on it. So I said, 'No, I don't want to do anything like that. I want to go when the Lord really calls me to go, if He needs me.'

This reminds us of a prophecy in the Book of Joel.

"And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. (Joel 2:28, NIV)

This prophecy came true after about 500 years on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2).

No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: (Acts 2:16, NIV)

Many Christians believe that God will pour down His Spirit again at the last days, known as the End time Revival. It will be like the Day of Pentecost again. What Jean Darnell saw in her vision was probably the End time Revival. We don't know when the end time will come but I believe that it will happen sooner than we think.
