Hassell on Hardshell Spiritualizing Prophecy

Interpreting the Scriptures-Eschatology PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sylvester Hassell   

The Gospel Messenger—October, 1894 (emphasis mine)

"Just as the hundred Old Testament prophecies of the first advent of Christ were literally fulfilled at His First Personal (Priestly) Coming, so shall the hundred Old and New Testament prophecies of the second advent of Christ be literally fulfilled at His Second Personal (Kingly) Coming."

My views exactly! Just what I was trying to tell my father over the years.

What is sad is that Hassell himself did not always follow his own good rules for interpretation.
