  • OUTLINE PROPHECY: ...What maybe called (an) outline prophecy, by which is meant a long sequence of epochs and events spanning the centuries, such as the four commonly recognized successive world powers of prophecy -- Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome -- as found in the great metallic image of the kingdom of man outlined in Daniel 2; or in the same world empires portrayed by the four beasts in Daniel 7. These are commonly recognized as covering the centuries, and reaching to the same great climax of the ages. A similar outline of epochs and events is several times repeated in the Revelation. Here the seven churches (Revelation 1:20), the seven seals (Revelation 5:1), and the seven trumpets (Revelation 8:2) cover long stretches of time in chronological sequence, and each leads to the same final climax.
