Major Elements Of The Popular Dispensational Premillennial End-time Scenario Found Missing In The Book Of Revelation

    It is interesting to note that the term "Antichrist" in never used in the book of Revelation. The book says nothing about the seven year career of some one-world government leader personal Antichrist. It says nothing about Antichrist involved in a peace deal with the nation of Israel for seven years, or about the breaking of any such agreement in the middle of that seven years.

    In fact, the book of Revelation never even mentions the expression "seven years," per se, nor does it indicate the existence of a "first half or a "second half" of anything. It says nothing about the rebuilding of the temple (the temple is mentioned in 11:1-2, to be sure, but the book does not tell us that it had been rebuilt!). Nor is anything said about an "abomination of desolation" being placed in any future temple.

    May these few interesting observations motivate us all to read the book of Revelation more carefully--this time listening to what it really says WITHOUT SUPERIMPOSING SIR ROBERT ANDERSON'S FALSE THEORY OF DANIEL'S PROPHECY OF THE SEVENTY WEEKS, as a preconceived, ulterior grid upon it!
