Real redpill: Revelation happened, Revelation is happening, Revelation will happen. This is Biblical. Daniel has a prophecy about the 'abomination of desolation' in Daniel 9. Daniel 9 is simultaneously a prophecy for events surrounding Antiochus Epiphanes and Judas Maccabeus in 2 Maccabees, and in this time there is an abomination of desolation, an end to sacrifice, foreign armies, murder of the high priest / anointed one, but the exact same thing happens in 70AD
- Jesus evokes Daniel 9 to warn of what is going to happen to Jerusalem. Thus what was foretold by Daniel was fulfilled before Christ, and fulfilled again after Christ, and the principle of the abomination of desolation will again be fulfilled in the end times, when the Antichrist enters the Third Temple built by the Jews.
Revelation works the same way. The entire book lays out the entire course of history for the Church. The saints reign in heaven, entreating God, and God rules on his throne, continuously worshiped and glorified by the angels and heavenly powers. Meanwhile the worldly powers persecute, kill, and oppress Christians, until this reaches a high point with the Antichrist and his minions. Nero was an antichrist. Many of the Roman emperors were antichrists. But they were not THE antichrist. Just as the prophets were prefigurations of Christ, so the antichrists of history are mere shadows of the reality of the Antichrist that will be revealed in the last days.
