It’s all of the futuristic deceptions of the enemy that make it hard to see the truth of the fulfillment.

The enemy has programmed believers to look to the future for the fulfillment, as most prophecy teachers say that all of the Revelation seals, trumpets and bowls take place in the end-times. This is called futurism.

Regarding the fulfillment of the prophecies in Revelation, ask yourself, what makes more sense?

That most of the prophecies wouldn’t be fulfilled for 1,900+ years and are only about the events of the final 7 or 3 1/2 years? Or that they describe the events that the saints face from the 1st century until Messiah’s return?

Do you realize that Revelation starts with Messiah proclaiming, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass and for the time is at hand”? Messiah is declaring that the prophecies would start to be fulfilled shortly after the vision was given to John.

Did you know that the great theologians of the 16th-20th centuries taught that Revelation has been in the process of being fulfilled since the first century? People like Albert Barnes, Adam Clarke, Henry Grattan Guinness, John Gill, Joseph Benson and Matthew Poole, point  to the historical narrative of Revelation. This is called historicism.

Did you know that the Protestant Reformers proclaimed the historicist narrative of Revelation and that the office of the papacy, the Popes, fulfill prophecy as the ‘little horn’ of Daniel 7, the ‘son of perdition’ of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the ‘antichrist beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome?

If the futuristic view of prophecy is true, then that means that our Messiah had nothing to say to His saints about the following events which have occurred during the last 1,900 years:

Satan using the Roman Emperors to kill millions of saints during ten persecution periods. During the harshest period, Emperor Diocletian sought to wipe out Messiah’s early church during ten years of great persecution from 303-312 AD.

Constantine and the Roman bishops codifying Catholicism, blending pagan god worship and the true faith.

The rise of the popes of Rome to power in the sixth century, who banned and burned the Scriptures and tortured and killed tens of millions of saints during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.

The Popes proclaiming to lead Messiah’s church, but teaching a false Gospel of works through the sacraments and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father, which denies Christ.

The Popes taking the title of ‘holy father’ and declaring that they are God, that they can forgive sins, and that they can provide salvation, which is blasphemy.

The great harvest of the Protestant Reformation when the saints came back to life and proclaimed the Scriptural Gospel, which caused millions of Catholics to be saved.

The translation of the Scriptures into common languages after it had been hidden in Latin during the Dark Ages. And the advent of the printing press, which led to Bibles being spread around the world.

The futuristic view tells you that in Revelation, Messiah had nothing to say to His saints about those things. I will show you that our Messiah did in fact speak of all of those things in the book of Revelation, not by name of course, but the events and the people groups were all described in clear detail, and history proves the fulfillment.

Did you know that in the 16th century, the Jesuits were empowered by the Pope to counter the Reformation?

They created false, futuristic explanation of prophecy fulfillment which says that most of Revelation is fulfilled during the last seven years and points to a one-man antichrist to deflect blame away from the pope.

During the last century, the enemy has pushed aside the witness of the saints who have gone before us and promoted their false futuristic explanations, which now mislead most believers. They’re hiding that most of Revelation has been fulfilled in exacting detail during the last 1,900 years and that there’s not much left to occur before Messiah returns. I pray that you will seek truth, not defend a belief so that you’re prepared.

You can save and print a one-page PDF called What Makes More Sense? to review and share with others.

As you read the summaries and watch the videos, pray for discernment, because your programming, the things that you’ve been taught about the seals, the trumpets and the bowls, are going to interfere with your ability to understand what the Bible is really telling us.

I’m not asking you to be empty-minded, but you will need to be open-minded.
Seek to pursue truth, instead of defending what you’ve been led to believe.

The enemy has worked hard to deceive the end times Church, because the culmination of all that he has worked for to push the world into a New World Order, takes place in the last few years.

By causing you to look to a future fulfillment of prophecy, he has caused you to not understand who the enemy of Messiah and His Church really are.

Many Christians haven’t studied the scriptures to validate the meaning of prophecies,
so they have blindly trusted what Pastors have told them.

Friend, you’re going to stand before your Messiah some day and be accountable for knowing the true fulfillment.  Saying that your Pastors told you is not going to cut it.

The historic fulfillment of Messiah’s Revelation reveals the battle between Satan and his followers, warring against Messiah and His followers.

Right now, the enemy is prevailing, because most believers don’t even know who the real enemy is. And most believers think that they will be raptured before the supposed 7-year tribulation period, so most don’t care.

This explains why Messiah called our Laodicean Church era, lukewarm, wretched, miserable, blind, naked and poor. The enemy has infiltrated seminaries and caused them to teach a futuristic fulfillment of Revelation. This has blinded believers from seeing who Satan has empowered to war against them, so they are unable to fight back with the rod of iron, the Word of God.

Friend, are you ready to learn the truth?

Below is a path of learning, to help you see the big picture of prophecy fulfillment, and then the verse by verse explanations which prove it out.

Father, I pray that you wake the church up from her slumber, and that you anoint each visitor with eye salve to help them see the truth. I pray this for your honor and your glory. Amen!

This video is about the events that the saints have faced during the last 1,900 years. The false, futuristic view of Revelation says that Messiah had nothing to say about these major events, and that the prophecies in Revelation are all fulfilled during the last few years.

This video is about Messiah foretelling major world events in His apocalyptic vision. He didn’t name them, but He used symbolic language to point to them taking place.

Revelation Timeline Decoded by David Nikao Wilcoxson - end times prophecy

Messiah’s apocalyptic vision is a war manual, designed to hide the explanation from those who should not understand it.

It uses symbolic words that are defined in the Old Testament to point to a literal fulfillment. If you read Revelation only from a literal perspective, the interpretation is hidden.

Understanding the vision is like taking a Biblical final exam. If you’ve read the whole Word, you will have seen the symbolism that Messiah uses and can apply it to the fulfillment.

If you read Revelation as one chronological narrative, the prophecies seem out of sequence. That’s because it has four chronological layers, each of which spans from when it was written until Messiah returns.

This book explains the prophecies of Revelation on a timeline to help you see how the four chronological layers interact with each other, so that you can comprehend the whole vision.

You will learn how to identify who fulfills the role of the son of perdition, the antichrist beast, the false prophet, and the harlot called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great.’ You will understand the proper context of the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments; the little book of Revelation 10, and the two witnesses of Revelation 11.

Whether you’re a novice at Bible prophecy or someone who has studied it extensively, I provide an explanation that is easy to understand yet has the depth of verse by verse explanations to provide you the evidence you need to prove it out.

  1. Just a little more, please, for your consideration–or not! Mauro taught, did he not, that THIS IS THE TIME OF CHRIST’S KINGDOM, that He is ruling NOW, seated on His Father’s throne of the universe, ruling and reigning in the midst of His enemies and until they become His footstool, just as His Father decreed in the Second Psalm. “My king have I sat on My holy hill of Mount Zion.” This is Mount Zion in the Heavens! This is the time of His kingdom. We are told that we may now come boldly before His throne to ask for help in our time of need. St. Paul tells us that we are now come to this city, Heaven’s Mount Zion, Heavenly Jerusalem, where there are an innumerable company of angels, and the spirits of just men made perfect! Christ will one day turn this His Kingdom, we His born-again people, over to His Father, that we may all be one in HIM! He told us that HIS KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS EARTH.

    Mauro also discovered in researching the phrase that the term a thousand years simply means “a long, long time of indeterminate length.” It is an idiom. Jesus Christ has been ruling and reigning in His Kingdom that is not of this earth, from His Father’s Throne on Heaven’s Mount Zion, a long, long time of indeterminate length, because we do not know when He will return! It is the age of the Holy Spirit here on earth. That Holy Spirit was poured out in Jerusalem as The Promise of the Father. The disciples were told to wait in Jerusalem until they be endued with power from on high with the anointing and power of the Holy Spirit! That self-same Holy Spirit is available to us today, for our walk on earth, and for power to testify to our King, and to live victoriously in Him.

    The hope of an earthly kingdom was the hope of the Pharisees, Christ’s bitterest enemies. It was never the hope of the Christian Church, for Jesus clearly told us that HIS KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS EARTH! The Hope of the Christians has always been the Return of Christ! This is why His Return is called The Blessed Hope. If we read and heed and love 2 Peter 3:9-13 we see that Christ does return as a thief in the night, or the Day of the Lord. The heavens being on fire will dissolve, the earth and everything in it will melt with fervent heat. There will be new heavens and a new earth, in which dwelleth righteousness. Christ’s One Return will be Judgment Day for all time and eternity, for only righteousness will live in the new heavens and the new earth! He said His return would be like the days of Lot’s and Noah’s days. These were days of swift, utter, complete and largely unforeseen judgment on the days of those times. Jesus’ one return to earth will be Judgment Day, and then there will be new heavens and a new earth, in which dwelleth righteousness, not a tired old earthly kingdom based in earthly Jerusalem, which God called Sodom and Egypt in the Book of Revelation because of her apostasies and rejection of Him and His King.

    Also, Enoch, the seventh from Adam, testified that the Lord would return with ten thousands of His saints! I really don’t think the saints are going to pull off taking down the antichrist powers of this earth on their own without Their Head, Their Deliverer, Their Mighty King and His Heavenly Host! The Hebrew children did not deliver themselves from Pharaoh and Egypt! They needed God’s Promised DELIVERER to set them free! That may be the meaning of the Stone made without hands….It could easily be Christ and His Heavenly armies, the saints of all time and eternity, returning in power and glory…The angels promised the disciples that just as they with their own eyes saw Christ physically ascend into heaven, so would He one day return!

    • Mary, I appreciate your zeal in studying prophecy fulfillment.

      Mauro was a preterist who rightly taught that the 70th week of Daniel 9 and Messiah’s Olivet Discourse were fulfilled in the first century. But he wrongly taught that the prophecies in Revelation were fulfilled in the first century, which causes preterists to proclaim that Messiah is already ruling.

      But the historical fulfillment of most of the prophecies in Revelation during the last 1,900 years, proves the preterist explanation of the fulfillment of Revelation is faulty.

      I prove out this historicist narrative of the fulfillment of Revelation in the Revelation Timeline Decoded video series and Revelation Timeline Decoded book.

      Keep pressing on for the glory of our King!

      • David,

        I am NOT a Preterist, and it is NOT a “Preterist” teaching that Jesus is ruling now; it is a BIBLICAL teaching. Jesus IS ruling NOW! That is a biblical FACT. He came into this world a King. The biblical Gospel that He announced was that “the Kingdom of God has come near.” Jesus continually corrected the Jews as to their views of the kingdom (“The Kingdom of God is like…”), but not once did He correct them on their views of the King. The throne was NEVER supposed to be on Earth, but because the Jews begged for a king of their own, rejecting Yahweh as their King, God allowed it to come down to Earth for a time. It has since returned where it belongs. Scripture states, “I gave you a king in my anger, and I took him away in my wrath” (Hosea 13:11).

        When the apostles called Jesus the “Christos,” it brought to mind Psalm 2. They were saying “Jesus is King!” Even their enemies understood this to be the case (see Acts 17:7). Three times Jesus admitted that He was indeed a King. All other occasions, He told people not to tell a soul. The biblical Gospel is that the Kingdom of God has come near and that Jesus is God’s anointed King of the entire Earth, made Judge of the living and the dead.

        The 1000 years is NOT literal. Never was. It is the Dispensational teaching that claims Jesus, the King of the Universe, God Almighty, needs a “trial period” for reigning. He is reigning now, as Scripture makes abundantly clear. Don’t let your pride and ego get in the way of shaping your beliefs and making them more accurate. Having recently discovered your works, I have suggested to others that your books would help supplement my own:

        If Preterists teach that Jesus is already ruling now, then they are correct. Where they are not correct is in stating that everything in the Bible has been fulfilled, which leaves us wondering how and why we are STILL here now. Shouldn’t eternity already be here? Shouldn’t sin and death already be done away with?

        Your explanations don’t “prove” anything. You can find fulfillments for Revelation through the previous 1900 years, but that DOES NOT negate Jesus reigning as King now. You do not have a monopoloy on truth, David. Beware of this pitfall. Some of your explanations no doubt consist of reaching and imaginative assumptions. Regardless, your view on Daniel 9:24-27 and the Olivet Discourse are similar, if not identical, to mine, and so I recommend your work as a decent supplement to my own to potentially fill in spots I did not address. This doesn’t mean you’re 100% accurate, however. In order to understand prophecy, we DO need to examine the past 1900 years. We CANNOT start in our day and look forward, ripping several passages out of their immediate and historical contexts the way Dispenstionalists do.

        Be open to the wisdom and discernment of other believers that the Spirit has gifted. There is a reason why every believer had the opportunity to speak during the meeting because as the Spirit lead, more info could be added to the understanding. No one has a monopoly on the truth. Even if we have 90% of it accurate and true, there’s still 10% we have in error and need to be willing to correct.

        God bless! Go serve your King!

        Timothy Klaver

        • Timothy, you start out by proclaiming that you’re not a preterist. Okay, so what are your beliefs about the fulfillment of the prophecies in Revelation? When are the seals, trumpets and bowls fulfilled? Where are we at on the fulfillment timeline?

          Most preterists don’t proclaim that all of Revelation has been fulfilled, but that most of it was fulfilled in the first century. Is that what you believe?

          You make many false accusations. Why proclaim that “the 1000 years is not literal,” when I don’t teach that it is literal?

          You say that my “explanations don’t “prove” anything.” Did you read my Revelation Timeline Decoded book or go through my YouTube video series? There’s verse by verse proof with historical evidence to back it up, and the witness of the saints who have gone before us.

          I’m in good company with brilliant theologians such as Adam Clarke, Albert Barnes, EB Elliott, Henry Grattan Guinness, John Gill and Matthew Poole; who taught the historicist narrative.

          I’ve never proclaimed that I have a monopoly on truth or that I’m 100% accurate, so why are you making those accusations against me?

          You say that some of my ‘explanations no doubt consist of reaching and imaginative assumptions” which is a generic statement that proves nothing. Give specific examples with Scriptural proof to show how my explanations are incorrect.

          I serve my King every day. 🙂

  2. Thank you. I will read these asap. In the meantime, please remember that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” All the other words in the New Testament that have a bearing on the end times also must be reconciled into our eschatology. They cannot be left out! Not everything is to be understood by the literary symbolism of the Book of Revelation. Some of the Word of God is simply literal! It, too, must be taken into account.

    God bless you and your studies to the max!


  3. Nikao, it seems to me that Christ was seated on His Father’s Throne of the Universe at the time of His Ascension, when He was found worthy to open the scrolls of the future. It seems to me that He was the One pouring out the bowl and trumpet judgments on the malefactors of the Roman Empire under the emperors and popes, throughout the history that has unfolded ever since His ascension. This would indicate to me that yes, indeed, HIS KINGDOM is not of this earth, and it has been going on ever since His ascension!

    Mauro did not write half as good a book on the Book of Revelation as you have done, but the fact that Christ has already been seated on His throne seems to have been borne out by the Second Psalm! HE HAS ALREADY BEEN SEATED ON HIS FATHER’S THRONE OF THE UNIVERSE IN HEAVEN’S MOUNT ZION! Why then do the nations rage and the heathen imagine a vain thing? This is the time of His Kingdom! We are invited to come boldly before His Throne and ask for help in our time of need–NOW! We are told that we have been seated in heavenly places WITH HIM! I’m thinking that when He comes back, at Judgment Day, that is when He hands His kingdom over to the Father. He said He would not lose one of them that His Father had given Him!

    I have already purchased 18 of your books to share and am contemplating buying more. RTD seems to be the one most complete and important explanation of the Book of Revelation ever!

    We do not have to agree on everything! That will work itself out as the Holy Spirit continues to lead us into all truth!

  4. Nikao, a thought. The kingdom of God isn’t any more future than is the kingdom of antichrist! It is just as faulty for us to think that there is a coming EARTHLY kingdom of Christ as it is to think that the antichrist is future!

    Jesus told us that His Kingdom is not of this earth. He told us His kingdom was “at hand” when He walked this earth! His Kingdom has been going on ever since His ascension, when He was found worthy to sit on His Father’s throne of the universe and open the scrolls of the future. He is ruling NOW in the midst of His enemies and until they become His footstool, just as His Father decreed in the Second Psalm! Men, women and children have been born-again by faith into His kingdom, all down through the centuries! When He returns, it will be all over, kaputsieville, as we see in 2 Peter 3:9-13! His One Return will be judgment day; there will be new heavens and a new earth, in which dwelleth righteousness.

    I think that Mauro explained this in his book The Gospel of the Kingdom. If you haven’t read that, it is quite insightful along these lines. Our minds have been clouded, as you point out, by the Jesuit thinking of futurism that has been piped into our heads! Christ’s kingdom is PRESENT as is the Antichrist’s! [We are told that we may NOW come boldly before His throne to ask for help in our time of need.] It’s just an invisible kingdom, because it’s spiritual, at this time, in the Power of the Holy Spirit which was poured out on the earth at Pentecost! These two kingdoms are at war for the minds and hearts and souls of men!

    Stay safe and well, in His Great Love and Care and Keeping. Have bought 30 of your book on Revelation to share as it’s the best I’ve ever encountered!



    • Mary, I have a study about Messiah setting up His Father’s kingdom in the first century on The Olivet Discourse Decoded website.

      Mauro’s perspective of Revelation 20 is skewed by his preterist understanding of the fulfillment of the prophecies in the previous 19 chapters.

      I appreciate your zeal for studying prophecy fulfillment and sharing it with others.

      Keep pressing on for the glory of our King!

  5. Nikao, still in your books; haven’t looked at the auxiliary info yet, but just wanted to suggest that the Stone made without hands that strikes the statue in its feet is the same Stone that the builders rejected, Who became the chief cornerstone, Jesus Christ, our Messiah. I don’t think it’s the job of his saints, or a select portion of them.

    • Hello Mary, whether Messiah comes the destroy the kingdoms of Satan or whether the saints are used to help make it happen, our role is the same: preach the Gospel, teach the truth of prophecy fulfillment to expose the deceptions of the enemy, to remove their power over people’s minds, to set the captives free, for a glorious harvest of souls for the kingdom.

      Shalom 🙂
