    PRETERISM THE NEW FRONTIER

    Man, you really wanted to go there?------oi-kü-me'-nā the inhabited earth the portion of the earth inhabited by the Greeks, in distinction from the lands of the barbarians the Roman empire, all the subjects of the empire the whole inhabited earth, the world the inhabitants of the earth, men the universe, the world Good thing the disciples were packing their Greek concordances. How about Rev 12:9- And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: G3625 he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. At least the rest of the planet never got deceived by Satan, eh? But seriously, the same word is used elsewhere as you can see with the context dictating the usage. Of all people, you should understand the audience relevance thing here. So I ask again, WHEN did Jesus return?

    Hopefully this thing won't crash. ...So then the "world" is now the Roman world by analysis. Could we say, for God so loved the "Roman world"...? Not! So yes, Every would have to SEE him as stated. But alas, the preterist doctrine disallows it. I don't see why we should cling to such a belief that denies literal fulfillment of prophecies.

    Ahhh, standard preterist rhetoric. Using my phone now will be back when I get my PC to stop going BSOD. (Thurs?)

    We'll it's obvious it wasn't in the first century. But the previous verse indicates a long wait. Like perhaps till the Gospel is is preached in all the world.

    PRETERISM THE NEW FRONTIER

    Hello Larry, I see what you are saying. Yes I also have heard of the position of Rev. being written pre 70 A.D. But it only makes that position worse. Some futurists maintain that NT writers believed that the things they spoke of would be fulfilled in that time, (yet God saw it otherwise) similar to OT prophets who didn't see two comings of Messiah or that He would suffer and be rejected. IMO, once again the majority is wrong, believing things that will not turn out the way they think.
  7. What should convince pre tribbers would be the appearance of the two witnesses. But I suspect even that will be met with skepticism initially. Certainly the imposition of a mark in order to buy and sell would do it.

    Hello Larry, "Sweep under the rug"? You'll never hear me trivialize the errors of those who make predictions and rely on news articles-period. But the same should be said for those who tell us that major prophetic passages are already fulfilled without anyone in history ever noticing such events. I'd say it works both ways.

    Hi Larry, Well said. I am sure you will get plenty of info here on the futuristic approach. To me, full preterism is not defensible. And partial preterists are actually by default partial futurists.

    Hi Retro So then what is your version of Rev 19? Is Jesus is seen defeating the armies at Armageddon? Also you should not specifically that in ch. 11 we have, "the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." THAT is perfect evidence of-resurrection! One might say,"It's always amazed me that something so direct could be so misunderstood." So it is in THIS chapter as well. And so as taught by Paul in 1 Cor. 15, there is no separation between rapture and resurrection. They happen at the same time. Chapter 14:14-16 of Rev. says nothing about the middle East. (Iraq, maybe? Egypt?) Rev. 19 starts with people in the air having just been raptured and shouting praises to God.

    Hi Marilyn Thanks for that. It clears it up for me, we are seeing it differently and I respect that. I don't go into "Lilliputian" mode.

    Hi Retro Do you believe perhaps that second coming is here: Rev. 14:15- And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. AND here: Rev. 19:1- And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: That's how I see it. It is shown more than once.

    Is this the second coming? If not where?

    Hi Hazard I will go over this more. I liked the phrase about not having an "omnibody", but I have seen some bad things done with the idea of a "spirit body".
