"What is your opinion about the meaning of Bible prophecy? Is the book of Revelation a prophecy about the future of this earth that is still yet to come -- or is it prophecy that has mostly already been fulfi lled through this passing Christian Age? Christians living in our world today are familiar with the many futuristic interpretations of the prophetic books of the Bible that have been offered to us by the publishing industry -- especially some of the wild and radical interpretations of the Book of Revelation. There are rivers turning to blood, stars falling to the earth, a ""last chance to go to heaven"" theology, and on and on it goes. Every few years, as the passing history of our world takes new turns, these predictions that are supposedly based upon Bible prophecy have to be revised again and again to make them suit the changing world scene. This means that there were some wrong interpretations somewhere along the line. But there is a better way. Before the middle of the 20th century when futurism developed such an amazing acceptance into the Christian community, there was another method of interpretation that was very prominent called ""historicist"". This simply means that the Book of Revelation is really prophecy about events that have been happening for about 2,000 years now, and that agree in description and in timely order with the chapters of Revelation. The same is true with much of the Book of Daniel. Loren Wilson, with his academic background in history and his preaching experience as a pastor, has updated the writings of the old historicist Bible commentators by including events of the 20th and 21st centuries into the mix. The results may change your perspective of what Daniel and Revelation is all about."
