Futurism is an interpretation of the Bible in Christian eschatology placing the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Book of Revelation and the Book of Daniel and the Olivet discourse and The Sheep and the Goats generally in the future as literal, physical, apocalyptic and global. Other views place the fulfillment of such prophecies in the past as literal, physical and local (Preterism; Historicism), or in the present as non-literal and spiritual (Idealism).

Futurism has both ancient and modern variants, the most common among modern Protestant evangelicals being Dispensationalist.

Most Christians believe that Jesus will come again to fulfill the rest of Messianic prophecy, see Nicene Creed.
