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 wondering. The ark of the covenant that Moses built was built as an earthly copy of God’s Throne. The tabernacle, or tent, in the wilderness, was supposed to be an earthly copy of God’s Throne Room in heaven. Moses was shown these in a vision. We are told in the Book of Hebrews that the times of the earthly types and shadows are now over and done with. They will never be re-established. SO, Our Jesus, who is and was the Lamb of God, is NOW SEATED ON THE MERCY SEAT OF HEAVEN, God’s Throne! We are told that we may now come boldly before His Throne to ask for help in our time of need! He sits under the cherubim there, real ones, not ones made of gold by the hands of men, down here! But, I have a problem with the blood making atonement for our sins! Is that blood now sitting on the Mercy Seat in the Person of Christ, Our Lord, God’s Lamb, Our Savior?

    • Mary, I appreciate your search for truth. That said, I’m not a pastor, I’m just a follower of Messiah who has a role to play in the end times to explain the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. I pray that the Spirit will guide you to people who are gifted in explaining the theology of Messiah’s atoning sacrifice for our sins and whether His blood is on the heavenly Mercy Seat.

  2. Thanks, David. I do not have a pastor and thus must do my own thinking and ask for help as I go along, and for correction, as it is needed.

    Christ’s blood is on the mercy seat in Heaven if He is simply seated on God’s Throne, and He is, for THIS IS THE TIME OF HIS KINGDOM. Maybe Mercy now has a human face, heart, hands, and blood, and that is Our Lord! The true and living cherubim fly over God’s Throne in Heaven, crying Holy, Holy, Holy! The earthly mercy seat had the wings of golden cherubim atop it, but it was only an earthly copy of God’s Throne! All the furniture in the temple was made of acacia wood overlaid with gold except the lid of the ark, the mercy seat. It was made of pure gold, suggesting its heavenly nature.

    The Lamb of God is now ruling and reigning in the midst of His enemies and until they become His footstool, just as His Father decreed in the Second Psalm. He told us that His Kingdom is NOT of this earth; it is transpiring NOW on the other side of the veil that separates time from eternity and earth from heaven! It is the Eternal Reality. The one down here is just a passing and limited, temporary reality. This appears to be the time of the Holy Spirit’s work on earth, in Christ’s stead, as He has now come to be our guide and comforter. It is HE that guides us into all truth. Jesus said it would be better for us that He go away and the Holy Spirit come! In His human form, He could not be everywhere at once, but in the form of His Holy Spirit, this is now possible.

    Men, women and children have been “born again” into Christ’s Kingdom down through the ages, by faith in His Atoning Death. That is why the Kingdom of God does not come by observation! It is a totally spiritual thing for us down here now, in this age, and spiritual things are not observable, although their results may be.

    His kingdom was not postponed to the future, as Scofield and his ilk maintain. There will be no earthly kingdom, for He clearly told us that His kingdom is not of this earth! At His return, there will be new heavens and a new earth, in which dwelleth righteousness. See 2 Peter 3:10-13. But 2 Peter 3:7 is also important.
    It says that this earth has been reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. This means that Christ’s one return will be judgment day! He told us that His Return would be like Noah’s and Lot’s days. Those were judgment days for the world and salvation days for believers! Time ends, eternity begins, and Heavenly Jerusalem, our true and forever home, will descend from God, down out of heaven!

    I guess we shall see, but the news that Christ’s Blood dripped onto the top of the mercy seat, the top of the ark of the covenant, hidden below the crucifixion site, is huge! As is the fact that six men sent to retrieve it were slain on the spot! I’m sure God wants it there to be a testimony to many, as to what it all signifies!

    Another observation. The ark of the covenant is a box that holds the stone tablets of the law. The mercy seat is the lid of that box. The mercy seat was to be sprinkled with blood once a year by the High Priest. This suggests that the blood atonement is required for all those who’ve broken God’s Laws, that when God sees the blood, He will “pass over” us with His wrath. Even Moses sprinkled these things and the people with the blood of the lamb and hyssop. All this symbolism means something that is not beyond our grasp to understand.

    His best and every blessing! I truly don’t want to annoy you! Just want to share my thoughts on these things with you, in case they have any merit. Thank you!

    • Thank you for sharing all of that great information! Praise our High Priest for shedding His blood to atone for our sins, so that judgment passes over us! Keep pressing on for the glory of our King!

  3. Yes, and more simply put, “Mercy rejoiceth over judgment!” That is what happens if we come to Christ’s Mercy Seat. He said that anyone coming to Him, He would in no wise cast out. And best of all, HE PAID IT ALL! “For by the one offering [of Himself] He perfected forever them that are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:14. That is something to shout about! That is the GREAT GOOD NEWS, The Gospel we are to take to the whole world! He took all of our sins upon Himself and IMPUTED to us, BEQUEATHED TO US, His Own Perfect Righteousness! That is the Work He completed on His cross, when this fact, this exchange, became an established, LEGAL, LAWFUL reality, and when He died, He cried, “It is FINISHED!” The great work of the Redemption of the Human Race was completed. Now, the job is simply to tell everyone we know, so that no one neglects to hear of it! It is no wonder we will be praising Our Lord throughout eternity! The Word says that our only work is to believe on all that Christ accomplished for us on His Cross! WHAT A SAVIOR!

    All His Love, Joy, Peace, Truth and VICTORY!

  4. Hey David,

    An item of interest for you if you haven’t seen it – Chris Pinto of Adullam Films interviewed a South African preacher and writer named Shawn Willcock in two parts:

    Part 1:
    Part 2:

    Both Chris and Shawn are historicists, and they discuss a lot about the Jesuits, including activities of the order in Africa.

    Shawn Willcock mentions near the end of the second part that he is writing a commentary on Revelation and it is nearly complete. This could be something for you to look out for since you were called by our Heavenly Father to share prophecy fulfillment. Shawn could have some interesting thoughts you may have not considered in his commenary when it comes out! I’m not familiar with Shawn Willcock but they discuss a book he’s already written about the Jesuits, so alongside waiting for this historicist commentary on Revelation he mentioned, I may look into what else he has written or any possible videos or interviews he’s done in the past.

    Bless you and may your work for the kingdom continue, brother!

    • Hey Matthew, thank you for sharing the videos! I’m always looking to learn more from historicists! Keep learning and growing in The Way of Messiah!

  5. Hi David,

    I hope you find the time to listen to the latest English speaking YT video Jorg Glissman has put out titled
    “An apology and outlook to the future of joggler66 and ‘They Are Without Excuse’ “.

    In particular, please pay close attention to the 21 minute marker regarding his discussion of history between 538 AD and 1798 AD. If you recall, I mentioned to you a few times (awhile back) about Jorg and Tom’s disagreement with the 1,260 day account being in the past. In this video, Jorg specifically mentioned this 1,260 day teaching was derived from the “SDA cult” and that it is false.

    Jorg said in this video that sometime soon (March 1st or so) that he will be presenting a bible study using a book (he won’t reveal the name of the book until his YT video airs) that will discuss “the real 1,260 days being the rule of Antichrist in our time…” If you recall, this is what I was trying to tell you awhile back so I could understand what this is all about or hear another interpretation of history if there is one. Well, Jorg (and Tom, it seems) believe that we are currently living in the 1,260 day rule and that IT IS NOT OVER, and that THE DEADLY HEAD WOUND is STILL TO COME. Do you have any idea to what he is referring?

    Jorg did admit that he was wrong about the 2nd beast being the US. He came to that discernment a long time ago but wanted to reiterate his apology. However, the jury is still out on what he believes is the 2nd beast spoken about in Revelation which does concern me. He does still believe and teach that the Antichrist of the Bible is the Papacy.

    History is history whether the SDAs, you, me or anyone else presents it. I am always in “red flag mode” when the SDAs teach but some of their Biblical prophecy fulfillment teachings and historical accounts are correct.

    Anyway, would you mind taking a listen to this video. I will be tuning in to Jorg and Tom now that they have stopped discussing Wohlberg’s (SDA) End Time Delusions book. Some of it is accurate but some of it is completely outside of Scripture and mystical/New Age, and I had to turn away.


    • Hello, It’s interesting that he says that the 1260-years didn’t start in 538, 606 or 800; and that the 1260-years isn’t over. I really have no idea who he would proclaim is the earth beast, which would explain this narrative.

      The ‘deadly head wound’ occurred in 476 AD, when the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power. The office ceased to exist, thus the ‘deadly head wound’ description.

      It was healed with the popes of Rome, who took their title of Pontifex Maximus, the leader of church and state of the Roman beast kingdom.

      Revelation 13:14 points to the popes being removed from civil power in 1798 AD, but the office of the papacy still exists; so the office was ‘wounded by the sword, and did live.’

      Revelation 13:15 points to the 1929 Lateran Treaty which makes it seem like the pope has civil authority against, thus the ‘image of the beast’ was created. And that’s worked really well, but it’s the black pope who controls the Vatican, so it’s just an image, a façade.

      It’s really obvious to me that the General in Rome is the false prophet, who rose to power out of the ‘earth’ of the Vatican. And that he controls the world via three city-state corporations and many front organizations.

      So it will be really interesting to see what explanations Jorg gives. So far it seems like they are believing a false narrative.

      I don’t always listen to their show, so please let me know when they make some declarations.


      • Thank you David for your prompt reply.

        I’ll keep you posted on their newest video explanations of the 1,260 days/years and “deadly head wound” and “”earth beast”. I’m really afraid that this is going to be a false narrative, especially because they are going to use yet another book (that he won’t even reveal yet – why?) to base the NEW narrative.

        Why are professing “Christians” always looking to something or someone outside of Scripture? If Rome is the 4th and final beast kingdom, then it is ROME ROME ROME, and ROME ROME ROME today is the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH & VATICAN, controlled by the White and Black Popes and hierarchy which includes the 3 city-state corporations (D.C., Vatican, London). A run-on sentence but you get the point.
