    Prophetic timescales from books of Daniel and Revelation

    Daniel 12v4. But thou O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end................

    Daniel12v9 And he said, Go thy way Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

    These scriptures make it clear that the words are postponed for some time after Daniel. How long might that be? Well history shows that the prophecies started to unravel around 500 years later when Jesus arrived on the scene.

    Now compare the book of Revelation.

    Revelation1v1 The revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto him to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass, and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John.
    Rev1v3 Blessed is he that readeth.............for the time is at hand.

    And at the end of the book.-
    Rev22v6And he said unto me, These words are faithful and true, and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
    Rev22v10 And he said unto me, seal not the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.

    I don't know if anyone has noticed the comparison I am making here.

    Daniel was told to seal the book till the time of the end. John was told not to seal the book because it will shortly come to pass.

    Daniel's words became operational in about 500 years. According to many teachings, John's words are still in abeyance after 2000 years.

    Something fishy here?

    How much of revelation has already passed, and how much is still to come.

    Please don't let's start a slanging match from the different dispensational camps. Can we look at what the words, and history, say rather than what famous teachers say.

    Firstly, Daniel's prophecy had already started when he was told to seal certain words. So no it wasn't 500 years later, so one half of your basic premise is wrong.
    Secondly, Revelation starts soon with the words for the 7 churches. This wasn't some 2,000 years in the future, but within a short span of time, perhaps years at best, but probably less. So your premise again is faulty.

    "And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." Revelation 11:8

    Can we identify this city? I think so.

    The great city is referred to later, Revelation 16:19, 17:18, 18:10, 18:18, 18:19, 18:21

    The main theme of the book of Revelation is the avenging of the Apostles and Prophets, 18:20 & 19:2, for the persecution they suffered at the hands of the Jews in the 1st Century, culminating with the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D.70

    Things did, 'shortly come to pass'.
