Hidden In Plain Sight is new and different in its presentation of end times Bible prophecy. What makes it unique is the new theology that it champions. Its interpretation of passages from Daniel Chapters 2, 7, 8, 9, and Revelation 6, 12 and 17, show that the Bible tells of a continuous series of major and specific events occuring in the Middle East right now. These events will be continuing in time right up to the start of the seven-year Tribulation. These events are signposts telling us what season we are in as part of God’s end time plan leading up to the Tribulation and leading up to the return of Christ himself. Without knowing the significance of these events, people will see them only as news headlines.
Since this book’s message begins by arguing for an Islamic Antichrist, some have said that this book supports what has been called the Islamic Antichrist theory. But this book goes beyond that. Daniel 7 and 8 have much to yield – namely, the events immediately prior to the Tribulation. The knowledge that the Antichrist will be Muslim is one key. It tells us that the events of Daniel 7 and 8 could relate to the rise of the Antichrist since a Muslim Antichrist will rise from that area of the world. But the other key is the set of verses within Daniel 7 (Dan. 7:12,17) and 8 (Dan. 8:17,19) that tell us that these events are to be fulfilled in the end time and not in ancient times. Together, those verses and the view of the Antichrist being Muslim, creates the four signposts. Informally, I refer to this new theology as Signpost Theology.
Formally though, I propose calling this new theology the Doctrine of the Pre-Trib Event Sign Sequence. The name may not flow but it does label that which it covers – a sequence of events which are signs, that occur prior to the Tribulation. If this new theology is to be discussed it might as well be given a name.
