In order to understand the book of Revelation theologians use general models of interpretation to try to correlate the visions of Revelation with events on earth.

The most common models are preterism, which sees the visions as applying to the time they were written (first and second centuries); futurism, which applies most of Revelation to the future “time of trouble”; and historicism, which interprets the prophecies as covering the span of history.

However, the use of these models can create bias that interferes with finding the true meaning of Revelation.
