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

The anti-preteristic historicism of the Puritans' Westminster Standards

It should not be necessary to need to add that, just like John Calvin himself, so too the Calvin-istic Westminster Standards — the official teaching of all Presbyterian Churches worldwide — are not preteristic but historicistic. Nowhere do they assume that the predictions of Daniel were fulfilled in Daniel's day, nor that the predictions of John's Revelation anent the Roman beast were primarily fulfilled in the apostolic age. For to Westminster, Antichrist alias the Roman beast is not first-century Pagan Rome — but the later Romish Papacy!
