PROPHECY - LESSON 1: "Schools of belief about Prophecy." .
USA Bible Girl says:
Christians interpret the prophecies in the bible broadly in 4 ways:
1) Historical School , believe that most of the prophecies in the Book of Revelation are already fulfilled. An example might be to say the 200 million man attack from the kings of the East in Revelation 9 & 16 was fulfilled by Genghis Khan, and the prophecy of a volcanic eruption in Revelation 8:8 was an event in the 6th century, and that it caused a pandemic known as the Plague of Justinian.
2) Futurist School . Futurism is a Christian view that interprets portions of the Book of Revelation, Daniel, and the Gospels (etc) as future events as yet unfulfilled, But most Futurists seem to agree we are now living in what is called The End Times, and so these prophecies will soon be fulfilled.
3) Preterist School . The preterist interpretation of Scripture regards the book of Revelation as a symbolic picture of first-century conflicts, not a description of what will occur in the end times.
4) Eclectic School . In this common but seldom discussed School of thought, it is believed all 3 of the other schools have some truth in them. For instance they might say Revelation 12 discusses a time period over 1,000 years long where the church (spiritual Israel - the woman in this chapter) is persecuted in the wilderness, but also has a modern fulfilment were the End Time church is also driven out into the wilderness avoiding precursors of the mark of the Beast.
Another example is that the description of the 7 churches really did happen at that time (Preterist school) but that they also symbolically describe 7 time periods throughout history (Historical school) yet the final lukewarm church describes the End Time church and society (Futurist school).

PROPHECY - LESSON 2: The End Times and "The Gospels" .
Scandinavia Bible girl says:
Some of the main parts of the Bible about End Time prophecy, can be found in the Gospels (whole chapters where Jesus directly taught his disciples face to face) the Book of Revelation, and the Book of Daniel.
When we look at the Gospels, please remember the questions Jesus was asked as a context:
"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying,
1) Tell us, when shall these things be?
2) and what shall be the sign of thy coming,
3) and of the end of the world?" Matthew 24: 1-3 .
Please take heed! Some people think the chapters Matthew 24 Matthew 25, Mark 13, Luke 21 & Luke 17, are all talking about one event - the End Time prophecy Era.
However the destruction of the temple was in 70 AD, and was a truly violent event where huge numbers of people were murdered for daring to revolt against Roman rule. The cruelty was unbelievable as well, some people swallowed their money to escape from the city and the Romans got it out of them by killing them.
The return of Christ is another topic, and the sign of this return yet another. "The End of the World" is almost certainly interpreted by Jesus as 1) The End Time, and 2) 1,000 years after that, as that is when Matthew 25 occurs and the "sheep and the goats" Day of Judgment, we know its at the final days before eternal Paradise or Hell.
In short be aware there is more than one question, and be "in the Spirit" about understanding End Time prophecy. The 70 AD event may also be used by Jesus as a precursor example of events in the End Times.
Believe it or not the above photo is a symbolic statue of the United Nations. Besides the wings it is an uncanny likeness of the Beast in Revelation 13:1-3. However the Lion in Daniel 7 represented the Empire of ancient, and their lion symbol had wings.
This statue may g=have been recently hidden from public view. Is that because it is a giveaway?
