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. Hey David, I was already aware of historicism before I came across your site, but I’m very impressed with your work and plan on sharing it with others. I do have a few questions.

    1. I just received your Revelation Timeline Decoded Summary PDF, and I’m planning on buying your 3 books. I’m just wondering how are the books different than the PDF, are they just a lot more detailed?

    2. Have you ever came across a historicist who disagrees with you slightly on a few historical fulfillments? I’m just asking because I watched some videos from a historicist on YouTube, and he said the 2nd army in Rev. 9 was the Mongols instead of the Muslims. He also said the false prophet is the Greek Orthodox Church instead of the Jesuits. Just curious what your thoughts are on this.

    Thank you for your hard work!

    • Hey Health, thank you for your comment! That’s great that you’re able to see the historicist explanations. The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded and The Olivet Discourse Decoded PDFs are of the whole book. The Revelation Timeline Decoded Summary PDF is a summary of the much longer explanation in the book.

      Sure, historicists have many commonalities but give different explanations for some prophecies. The trumpet judgments are against the three parts of the Roman Empire, so I’m not seeing how Mongols would fit the description. The conquering of Constantinople by the Turks brought about the fall of the Roman Empire.

      Revelation 12-13 describe the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom, so I don’t see how the Greek Orthodox Church fulfills the role of the false prophet.

      The book proves it all out in detail. Keep learning and growing in The Way of Messiah!

      • Thank you for your response! I definitely think we have a calling to bring the truth of historicism to light. I’ve been sharing it with as many people as possible, and stumbling across your website has made that so much easier. The same guy in his videos claimed Rev. 12 was about the Revolutionary War.

          • His YouTube channel is ChristmasisaLie and the playlists is Antichrist for Dummies. It’s a computer voice. He does some very extensive videos, and I’ve learned a lot watching his videos. It seems he just differs from you on a few things. But on most things, y’all agree. Thank you so much for answering my questions.

          • I’ve watched some of his videos, but the voice and the approach of the explanations is not my style. That’s great that he gives the historicist explanations!

      • Thank you for your response. The historicist I listened to said there were some weird translated words in the KJV that changed what a verse would say, and he made a good case for this. He said that Rev. 13 mark of the beast was fulfilled in the 400’s AD when some Codex was passed making it illegal to market or trade unless you were a catholic, and it is carried on today as the ash mark of Catholicism that is put on the forehead and sometimes on the right hand. He said that Rev. 13 prophecy about images or icons was fulfilled by all the icons of the Greek Orthodox Church, and that the prophecy about calling fire down from heaven was fulfilled by the miracle of holy fire done by the Greek Orthodox Church every year and goes back to about the 400s AD. I’m just curious about your thoughts on the mark of the beast and these other things.

  2. David, I was just going to let you know that I tried to request a free copy of the 70th week of Daniel and the Olivet Discourse PDF and it wouldn’t let me submit it. I tried a few times. It worked when I did it for the book of revelation pdf.

    There is one other question I have that really bothers me, and I would like your take on it.

    What is your viewpoint on the trinity and the nature of the Godhead, the Father, and Christ?

    I know a lot of people don’t believe in the trinity because they say it was decided at the council of Nicaea by bishops who were part of “Constantine’s” Christianity, and was possibly used to make it easier to convert pagans. They say the trinity comes from pagan civilizations with the Father God, the mother Goddess, and divine child.

      • I just read over your study on the trinity, and that’s what I believe.

        What do you think it means in Genesis where it says let us make man in our image? What does the “our” mean?
        Last Sunday at the Bible study class at the church I attend, the teacher was saying Christ was God and said the “our” was reference to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

        Also, what Bible versions do you recommend?
        I stay away from the newer Bible version based on corrupt manuscripts. Lately I’ve been reading the Lexham English Bible translation based on the Textus Receptus.

  3. When talking with preterists, how do you go about explaining Rev. 1:1 shortly come to pass, Rev. 1:3 the time is at hand, and Rev.1:7 even the ones that pierced him will see him? Also later in Rev. when he says he comes quickly?

    • Messiah was saying that the prophecies in Revelation would start to be fulfilled shortly after Revelation was written, which is the case as the first seal points primarily to Emperor Trajan who reigned from 98-117 AD. As for Messiah saying that he would come quickly, that mean can mean suddenly without warning.

      Sadly, to preterists and futurists who don’t understand the historicist narrative of Revelation, Messiah’s return will catch them by surprise.

  4. I’m sorry to ask so many questions, I just respect your views on things and have questions that few people can answer.

    1. What are your thoughts on Messianic Torah Observers who believe we should be keeping the law of Moses? From my understanding we are under a new covenant.

    2. Does Jesus mean Hail Zeus, and is it wrong to call him Jesus?

    • Heath, no worries, I understand that you wont get good answers from pastors.

      Messiah told us to love the Heavenly Father and others, which sums up the ten commandments as the first four are about loving the Father and the last six are about loving people.

      Messiah took the commandments to the next level, saying that looking at a person with lust in your heart is adultery, and hating someone and wishing them dead is murder.

      The Apostle John in his epistles and Revelation, repeatedly said that if we love the Father then we ought to obey His commandments.

      We strive to obey our Heavenly Fathers’ instructions out of love and gratitude, not to earn salvation.

      It doesn’t make sense that the Father told us to keep His commandments and then His Son eliminated that need.

      Messiah’s one-time sacrifice paid the price for our sins and saved us from the condemnation of being a sinner. Messiah fulfilled the law perfectly as no man can, but He declared that the law did not pass away with His sacrifice.

      No, Jesus does not mean Hail Zeus. That’s a false teaching from people who have come out of the manmade traditions associated with Roman Christianity. I use the name Yeshua, but Jesus is a valid English transliteration of His name. This study covers that topic:

  5. Hi David

    Totally off topic. When you have time could you please give me your thoughts on the Angel of The Lord in the OT and if its Messiah or not?

    Bought your books a month back. Finished Daniel Decoded, almost done the Olivet Discourse. Looking forward to Rev Timeline. Awesome work. Its been a Blessing.

    On the Rooted Truth Podcast, Jenny had a fellow named Leo De Siqueria on. Sounds like you two would hit it off. Episode 120 if your interested.

    God Bless you & your Ministry.
    – Spencer

    • Hi Spencer, what passage are you referring to in regard to the ‘Angel of The Lord’?

      I appreciate your zeal in studying Bible prophecy.

      Based on his book intro, Leo De Siqueri may give the preterist view of Revelation. Revelation Timeline Decoded gives the historicist view.

      Unfortunately, Jenny has been featuring people who give the preterist view of Revelation.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way of Messiah,

      • Hi David

        One example would be Exodus 3:2

        And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. (KJV)

        What’s your thoughts on who the angel of the LORD is? Father, Son, ?

        Thank you

        • Spencer, here are some commentaries from some great theologians who wrote whole Bible commentaries, which you can find at

          Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible
          The angel of the Lord – Not a created angel certainly; for he is called יהוה Jehovah, Ex 3:4, etc., and has the most expressive attributes of the Godhead applied to him, Ex 3:14, etc. Yet he is an angel, מלאך malach, a messenger, in whom was the name of God, Ex 23:21; and in whom dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, Col 2:9; and who, in all these primitive times, was the Messenger of the covenant, Mal 3:1. And who was this but Jesus, the Leader, Redeemer, and Savior of mankind?

          John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
          And the Angel of the Lord appeared unto him,… Not a created angel, but the Angel of God’s presence and covenant, the eternal Word and Son of God; since he is afterwards expressly called Jehovah, and calls himself the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, which a created angel would never do: the appearance was:

          Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible
          The angel of the Lord; not a created angel, but the Angel of the covenant, Christ Jesus, who then and ever was God, and was to be man, and to be sent into the world in our flesh, as a messenger from God. And these temporary apparitions of his were presages or forerunners of his more solemn mission and coming, and therefore he is fitly called an Angel.
