BIBLE INTRODUCTION PART III: UNDERSTANDING THE BOOK OF REVELATION: REPETITION

Home Page: Quantum Study Bible

A Jewish timeline is like a slinky. It goes around and around, coming back to the beginning and circling again.

In Genesis God created the heavens and the earth. At the end God will create a new heaven and a new earth where the end begins with the beginning.

God uses the past to describe the future. Evil spirits never die, they just wait for a new opportunity. Therefore; it occurs repeatedly that a prophecy for one event can also describe several more future prophetic events: one that is close, one that is a shadow or a “type”, and another one at the end of days.

The most obvious example is Daniel’s prophecy of a horn speaking bold things who goes into the holy of holies and declares that he is god. This prophecy perfectly described Antiochus IV whom the Jews called a mad man. However: Jesus, many years later said there is still another to come:

  • Matthew 24:15 – The Great Tribulation – “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand),
  • Mark 13:14 – The Great Tribulation – “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

Therefore; Antiochus IV was a shadow of one to come and a type of that “son of perdition”. He did his best to annihilate the Jews saying he would make Jerusalem a graveyard of Jews. Likewise the coming Antichrist will set out to kill all the Jews.

The conclusion is that the prophecy in scripture is often seen from the top view of the circle where many prophetic events are described together.
