Most of my followers know that there is a period of over 400 years between the writings of the Old and New Testament. In reality, it may span almost 500 years.

When Describing the Harlot and the Beast, the Context is Always Symbolic
The first reaction of most prophecy pundits is that the seven mountains upon which the woman sitteth are the seven hills of Rome.
