"Edward Bishop Elliott (1793-1875), scholarly prophetic expositor, received his education at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 1816. After traveling in Italy and Greece he was given the vicarage of Tuxford, Nottingham, in 1824, and later was made prebendary of Heytesbury, Wiltshire. In 1849 he became incumbent of St. Mark's Church, Brighton. A member of the Evangelical school, he was an earnest promoter of missionary enterprise and an ardent advocate of premillennialism. Elliott was thoroughly equipped as a scholar and was deeply interested in prophecy, spending a lifetime in investigation and seeking to understand God's mind thereon. His Horae Apocalypticae (Hours with the Apocalypse) [literally 'time with the Apocalypse'] is doubtless the most elaborate work ever produced on the Apocalypse... Begun in 1837, its 2500 pages of often involved and overloaded text are buttressed by some 10,000 invaluable references to ancient and modern works bearing on the topics under discussion.... Perhaps its most unique feature is the concluding sketch of the rise and spread of the Jesuit counter systems (Futurism and Preterism -ed.) of interpretation that had made such inroads upon Protestantism. Holding unswervingly to the Historical School of interpretation (Historicism -ed.), Elliott gives the most complete exposure of these counter interpretations to be found." (The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Leroy Froom vol. III, pp. 716-718). Horae Apocalypticae by E.B. Elliott



This marks the first day of publication of my Revelation Spreadsheet Analysis Tool.

Much of the work is done on it for Chapter 6 through Chapter 17. I will be updating it as we go forward as there are still many things to include, but I think the work in process will be very valuable for you. Here, you can SEE the dates of when these events took place, as well as reference sources in the Historicist writings. I am not Preterist. I would call myself Historicist, but I hold the view that several vials are still pouring...something the Historicist writers could not have foreseen 110 to 160 years ago.

There were more than 150 writers who interpreted the Book of Revelation between 200 AD and 1900 AD. Guinness's work, "History Unveiling Prophecy" was created through his study of those 150 works. Most of those built upon the work of those who came before them and they also shared with those who were their contemporaries. Often, they were in disagreement, but I like the respectful manner in which most of them dealt with their peers and also, how respectful they were of the views of their predecessors.

What we have, as a result, in the writings after 1800 is a sum total collection of everything they discovered in that whole 1700 years since John was on the Island of Patmos. Today, we seem to have, for the most part, a bunch of lone rangers, running around willy nilly with their own private interpretations.

The only problem I had with all of those old writings is that, at the first, it was very tough to wrap my mind around all of that scholarship. To be humble, their vocabularies dwarfed my own when I began. I was also not accustomed to their attention to minute detail. It has taken me almost twenty years of studying their works to get to the place where I believe I can now do a spreadsheet analysis that will do justice to their works.

After all, all of the Bible prophets and apostles were historicists. They looked at what was happening in their time and said, "This is that which was written by the prophet _________. So, if you want to recognize a true prophet, look for one who looks back respectfully to what the prophets before him saw. Do not be impressed by rank speculators who come up with a hundred different ideas about what they think the bible says about the future. They love to do that because it sells books. Ignore them please.

Looking backward is valuable to build you up in the Kingdom of God. You can study how people either obeyed or disobeyed God and then review the consequences. Speculating forward is of little value in developing you as a disciple. But I love to look and watch forward for whatever my Lord might want to reveal. That is TRUE Bible prophecy!

"Edward Bishop Elliott (1793-1875) All the major Reformers and all the major Reformation creeds and confessions adopted the historicist position and it is this position that Elliott so skillfully defends. Included in Horae Apocalypticae you will also find a very useful historical survey of who held which positions concerning eschatology, much history on the Roman empire (and its interaction with Christianity), how the Reformation, Islam, etc. were prophesied in the Apocalypse, a world chronology according to the Hebrew Scriptures (which would make the Earth 6127 years old), patristic views of prophecy, the beast and his mark (666) revealed, and much more. The Papacy is also shown to be the apocalyptic antichrist, which was a standard position among the Reformers. Elliott also deals with Moses Stuart's Preterism. Horae Apocalypticae by E.B. Elliott
