a repetition 

A Recapitulation – 

A reinforcement, a necessary theory in understanding the Apocalypse first introduced by Victorinus of Pettau.  It holds that the visions are not necessarily in chronological order and possibly a repetition of other visions.  Many interpretation errors are a result of assuming the chapters are in chronological order.

a purpose of prophecy 

A Verification Of The Bible – 

A prophecy fulfilled in history gives us reason to believe what we find in the bible is truth. It also helps us interpret the bible but we must be limited to that which has already happened. Who can know the future? Not even the prophet who is directed to predict it. Somehow the prophet can assure us that all will end well providing us with a necessary comfort. Understanding it is not necessary. Readers will be blessed. 


a prince 

A Translation Problem – 

A commander or another interpretation problem if you are looking for the king of the north. There are eight different words in 52 different translations: princes 24, commanders 10, officers 7, officials 5, generals 2, leaders 2, principalities 1, subordinates 1. The word prince suggests a family member unlike the other seven words which have a similar meaning. Makes you wonder about words used in other parts of the bible. These are major differences in words used before you get to the problem of interpreting them. Reader beware.

A Number – 

A connection between history and prophecy that can be trusted.  Your interpretation?  Not so much.  Your translation?  Not so much except for numbers and colors.  Somehow they have survived what translators do to the Word of God.  Some things are sacred.  There are 60 different English translations to choose from.  Which one do you trust?

a translation 

A Bible – 

A different interpretation.  Would you believe 60 different English interpretations?  They can’t agree on the Word of God.  Who or what can you trust?  Numbers?  Numbers in the bible somehow survived all the translations.  All the versions.  All the interpretations.  Numbers can help us connect history to the prophecies.

A Prophecy Fulfilled – 

A number to verify a fit.  Your interpretation cannot be trusted.  Only history can verify the fulfillment of prophecy.  Only numbers along with history can verify your interpretation of prophecy.  Only prophets can predict the future.  If you need the future for your interpretation of prophecy, think again.  You are ignoring history and numbers.

a prophecy 

A Fulfillment – 

A history is necessary to confirm the fulfillment of a prophecy.  The future can be anything you want it to be to satisfy your interpretation.  History and the numbers that connect it to prophecy can confirm the accuracy of your interpretation.  Only the prophet knows the future.  We can only know history.

a connection with history 

A Number – 

A reliable connection between prophecy and history.  Your interpretation not so much.  All the different translations of the bible seem to agree on numbers.  Especially a “thousand years” when they reigned with Christ.  Not the “reign of Christ” which will get over 5 million hits on the internet.  Not so much with the bible.  0 Bible results for “”reign of Christ”.”  Something to think about.
