The Non-Preterist Historicalism of John Calvin and the Westminster Standards

I much respect many elements in Preterism.   Yet I believe the consistent teaching in eschatology of the infallible Word of God — is Classic Historicalism.   Certainly that is the position of the mainline Christian Church reflected in: the Patristic Fathers; the Mediaeval Scholastics; all of the many Protestant Reformers; the 1561 Belgic Confession (arts. 28 & 29); the Preamble to the 1619 Canons of Dordt; the 1645 Westminster Directory for the Publick Worship of God (in the middle of its Public Prayer before the Sermon); and the unadulterated Westminster Confession of Faith 23:4o & 25:6o B to all of which documents I myself am a Strict Subscriptionist.
