>> “And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are sealed till the time of the end.” (verse 9) <<
Equating this verse with delaying the “seals” in Revelation is just plain juvenile and silly. Everything in the Revelation but the “Thunders” is revealed!
The seals in Revelation are on Satan’s deed to planet Earth. Adam ceded that deed to Satan when he sinned, and therein lies Satan’s power on Earth. Opening those seals reveal the stages of Satan’s plans. Those plans span the time from the end of the apostolic power to the end of Satan’s rein.
The seals are the key to the entire 5th and sixth millennia in prophecy.
I am post-trib, to illustrate how dangerous it is to have a false interpretation of prophecy, I sometimes point this out to pretribs: “You believe that a pretrib rapture has to happen before the man of sin can be revealed (their interpretation of 2 Thess. 2); which means when he is revealed you will say this cannot possibly be the man of sin. The mark of the beast? no problem, I’ll take it, this can’t be the mark of the beast because the pretrib rapture hasn’t happened yet.”
I realize you are not pretrib, but your historicist system of interpretation is going to produce the same sort of consequence as in the illustration above. It’s best to keep an open mind on these things. You could be wrong.
This thread has become tail end Charlie, I think we are beating a dead horse. No more, I’m done.
