By comparison, other Christian eschatological views interpret these passages as past events in a symbolic, historic context (Preterism and Historicism), or as present-day .

These areas are: the rapture and great tribulation, our resurrection, the return of Jesus Christ, the millennium and future for national Israel, and future judgments including heaven and hell.   In speaking about the future of the Christian church, author Wes Granberg-Michaelson told a group of Christian Reformed Church ministry leaders that the presence of God’s Spirit is always greater. both in North America and worldwide, when the fullest diversity of God’s people is present.

He therefore proposes ways and means to meet these.
