Early Church Fathers Were Historicist – H. Grattan Guinness

300px-HenryGuinnessI continually hear that the early church fathers were all futurists with only vague references, there is nothing vague in what our author reveals here:

.1. The Fathers interpreted the four wild beasts of prophecy as representing the four empires, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. Here we have the foundation of the historical interpretation of prophecy. Take as an instance the words of Hippolytus on the great image and four wild beasts of Daniel : ” The golden head of the image,” he says, “is identical with the lioness, by which the Babylonians were represented ; the shoulders and the arms of silver are the same with the bear, by which the Persians and Medes are meant ; the belly and thighs of brass are the leopard, by which the Greeks who ruled from Alexander onwards are intended ; the legs of iron are the dreadful and terrible beast, by which the Romans who hold the empire now are meant ; the toes of clay and iron are the ten horns which are to be; Continue reading

The Man of Sin 2 – H. Grattan Guinness

There are several features in this portrait which I must ask you specially to notice. Observe the place occupied by the man of sin the “temple ” or house of God. This is not, and cannot be, any Jewish temple. Paul, who uses this expression in his prophetic portrait of Romanism, employs it both in Corinthians and Ephesians with reference to the Christian Church. In the second Epistle to the Corinthians, writing to Gentile Christians, he says, ” Ye are the temple of the living God ; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them.” In Ephesians he calls the Church “a holy temple,” a ” habitation of God through the Spirit ” ; and he would never have applied it to the Jewish temple, Continue reading

The Man of Sin – H. Grattan Guinness

…But this apostasy was to have a head, and the coming and character of that head are the great subject of Paul’s Thessalonian prophecy. A mistaken apprehension of his first letter to them had led the Thessalonians to expect an immediate advent of Christ, and in his second epistle Paul sets himself to correct this error by further instruction as to the future. He tells them of something that was destined to precede the return of Christ, a great apostasy, which would reach its climax in the manifestation of a certain mighty power of evil ; to which he attaches three names, and of which he gives many particulars similar to those which Daniel gave of his “little horn,” such as the place and time of its origin, its nature, sphere, character, conduct, and doom.
