-There has always been a true and Holy Spirit interpretation of the Word of God. This interpretation will ring true throughout history unchanged, and be verified by it. This is where we must start when looking for the best interpretation of the apocalyptic portions of the scripture. We must look in history for that which stands the test of time; that which agrees with the word of God, and history has proven to be true.
-This method of interpretation: Historicism, has been much maligned by the counter-reformation intrigue of hidden history and the Dispensational speculation of an end time Antichrist power, that has no place in history at all, but which has unfortunately been accepted as truth by the majority of the evangelical world.
-Because of this, the Historicist method of interpretation has become almost completely forgotten over the last century, even by Protestants, in the face of a method that is based almost entirely upon future speculation, rather than fulfilled prophecy in history.
-Perfect companion to my previous book Reformed Prophecy Interpretation for your reference library.

Things Which Must Shortly Come to Pass

Verse one: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;

We may simply refer to this volume as The Revelation, the Apocalypse, or The Revelation of St John. This opening verse gives us its proper title: The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

We have read from the Gospels that of the return of Christ, no man knows, not even the Son, but the Father alone![1] It is apparent here, that nothing remains hidden from the Son, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End: for God the Father has given this revelation to Him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass, beginning immediately upon its delivery at the end of the first century.

Those things which were formerly hidden will be revealed shortly as they begin to come to pass. Like a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, the church will clearly see in the history to unfold that which is immediately in its path, but only if it had seen the path behind which led to where it is in the present. Without seeing from whence we came, how shall we know where we are at, if we have lost the path?

[1]Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

The Thousand Years – Literal or Not

Rev. 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

We have here, the binding of Satan for a thousand years, in which he should deceive the nations no more. The power of Satan was broken in part at the first century by setting up of the gospel kingdom in the world, the church that Jesus said that he would build; it has been further reduced at various epochs in various temporal kingdoms, tolerating or becoming Christian; it was yet further broken by the termination of the 1260 year reign of the Antichrist; “but still the serpent has several heads, and, when one is wounded, another has life remaining in it.

Conversation with an ammilennial

Ammilenial: We are living and reigning with Jesus right now. Amillennialism is the early, correct view of the early church fathers. It is the only position that can be reconciled through scripture. God bless you in your work brother. Be well

Prophecy Reality: 1. Amil did not ascend until the 3rd century, so not the view of the early church fathers. 2. Like dispensational futurism, amil is constructed solely upon conjecture, as there is no explicit statement in the scripture supporting it. 3. To the contrary, premil is the only position explicitly supported by the scripture, and that by the plain reading of the text at ch. 20 of the Revelation. Thank you for your kind words.
