The Bible Specifically Demonstrates Historicism
In this session first we’re going to look at how the Bible teaches us to interpret prophecy, and how the Bible specifically demonstrates the historical method of interpretation. If we want to know how we should understand prophecy and the Book of Revelation, well it needs to be understood historically, that is if we’re going to take our cue from God’s Word itself.

The Error of Historicism?
In this chapter we’re going to continue in our topic of the day year interpretation. Let’s jump right in with Daniel chapter 9 and we have the 70 weeks prophecy. What does that have to do with the day year interpretation? Well let’s go back to Daniel’s time here: Daniel is living during what is called the 70 years desolation period.

Daniel is now getting toward the end of the 70 Years Desolation, he’s a very old man, probably older than I am right now, he gets a visitation from an Angel and we can read about that starting at Daniel 9:23.

So it’s not a theory, it’s something that God has used in the past. Let’s start with a scriptural reference which demonstrates exactly what we’re talking about.
I’m looking at Ezekiel chapter 4 and verse 6.
And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. (Eze 4:6) Continue reading Part One – In Defense of the Historical Method of Interpretation.
