This is a Historicist Blog

Our goal is to restore the Historical Protestant Interpretation of prophecy with special attention to the books of Daniel and The Revelation.

If you have been sitting in Church for years terrified about The Rapture, a Seven Year Tribulation, or a One-World Anti-Christ, this is your blog site. We will take the anxiety out of “end-times” prophecies. Our posts will clearly explain what the Bible actually says, and what it doesn’t say about future events.

Our Hermeneutics (rules of interpretation) adhere to the history, grammar and context of the passage as it was intended by Daniel and John.

We will not tell you what we feel. We will explain prophecies using sound logic and the tried and true rule of comparing Scripture to Scripture. It is imperative to understand correctly what is future and what has been fulfilled since the prophecies were recorded.

First of all you must understand this, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, 2Pet. 1:20

[Ezek. 4] Ezekiel, Zechariah, and  John measured the temple.[Ezek. 41-42, Zech. 2:1-13, Rev. 11:1-2]

The two Hebrew words involved in this are signs i.e. ‘ot and wonders i.e. mofetim.

‘ot is Translated as Signs

Then the LORD said to him, “Not so! If any one slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” And the LORD put a mark on Cain, lest any who came upon him should kill him. Gen. 4:15

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: Gen. 9:12

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanu-el. Is. 7:14
