Can We Confirm it?: Yes

About the year 100 CE, the Apostle John (an eyewitness of Jesus) claimed to have received a spiritual revelation directly from Jesus the Messiah. According to the Apostle John, he saw a vision of Jesus and wrote the final New Testament book, the book of Revelation. John wrote that Jesus gave him the words to the book of Revelation as follows:

"When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as a dead man. And He laid His right hand upon me saying, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. Write, therefore the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall take place after these things"
(Revelation 1:17-19).

Just as the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Daniel the prophet, the spiritual Jesus appeared to the Apostle John to foretell future human events. Although John wrote the message, Jesus the Messiah claims to be the source of the words.

Interpreting the book of Revelation

Foretelling the future (prophecy) is a very controversial subject. And the book of Revelation is controversial by itself. How should this prophetic literature be interpreted?

Among Christians, two basic interpretations are accepted. One group believes the book was fulfilled by the Roman Empire as it persecuted Christians in the early Christian centuries. The other group believes that the book foretells future events related to the 2nd coming of Jesus.

Let's consider the group that believes the book was fulfilled by Roman persecution. People who take this viewpoint fail to address that Jesus foretold that the Jewish people would be dispersed worldwide, then return to their homeland before the 2nd coming of Jesus. When the Jewish people took control of Jerusalem on June 7, 1967, it was a literal fulfillment of what Jesus had foretold in the gospel of Luke. It appears that overturning Gentile control of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War poses some difficult issues for the first group. The typical view is to deny that the return of the Jewish people means anything.

Is it possible that the book of Revelation will be fulfilled in the light of Jerusalem now being under the control of the Jewish people (fulfillment of Luke 21:7,20-24)?

In doing this research, it is important to note that we do not appear to be fulfilling the book of Revelation at this time (2005). However, it does appear that we are living in the environment in which the book of Revelation could be fulfilled. It is important to emphasize that if the book of Revelation is to be fulfilled, it would be logical to expect its "environment" to be in place before an actual fulfillment.

Since the book of Revelation is almost completely prophetic, it appears to be ideal for analysis with the Einstein Method. Let's review the Einstein Method?

The Einstein Method

Seeks to find religions that claim to foretell the future due to receiving words from outside time-space. (from God). After finding these types of messages, they can be analyzed using available evidence. How can we know the words come from outside time-space?

Seven guidelines must be met to begin to give support that the message is from outside time-space (from God).

Can we have confidence in the evidence?

Math based tools are used to calculate "IF" we can have confidence that we appear to be hearing from God.

Based on this approach, finding prophecies that show we are living in the environment in which the book of Revelation could be fulfilled are acceptable for analysis.

Environment of the Final Prophets

In the book of Revelation, John writes about two prophets that will appear. As the story line goes, the world will hate the prophets and will kill them. Their bodies will be left dead in Jerusalem for 3 Ĺ days. The verses below describe the technological environment at the time these two prophets step on the world scene, which is very descriptive of the 21st century.

"Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, . . . where also their Lord was crucified [Jerusalem, emphasis mine]. For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies [worldwide mass communication using visual methods, i.e. television, emphasis mine] and refuse them burial. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth"
(Revelation 11:8-10).

Consider the setting of the Apostle John. Nineteen centuries ago, it was impossible for the whole world to view human events at the same time. But human events are now viewed each day by the entire planet. The impossible (1st century) has become commonplace (21st century).

Could the Apostle John have reasoned such a prophecy since it was beyond his environment?

At that time, horses offered the fastest travel. It took months for news to travel across the known world. But the book of Revelation foretold of a future where everyone on the earth could look at an event at the same time. Is the source of such a vision from "outside" time-space? The author of these words claims to be Jesus the Messiah, who says, "I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore" (Revelation 1:18).

Supporting Evidence

  • Everyday, people around the world view events that occur at various places on the earth, which is the technological environment described by Revelation 11:9.
  • The technological environment described in Revelation 11:8-10 describes an environment that would have been completely foreign to the Apostle John.
  • I have calculated the probability that the Apostle John could have foreseen the technological environment of the 21st century. The calculation is based on satellite technology and launch vehicle (missile) technology. I would consider the calculation to be extremely conservative at 10-58.
