Jack Van Impe on Preterism

On "Jack Van Impe Presents"
6/19/02

Jack Van Impe | Jack in 2000 | 6/19/02 | 9/21/2

Jack: There is another school, right now, called Preterism (prn: Pree-ter-ism).  Watch it, because it is beginning to sweep into evangelical churches.  And this is a doctrine that was created by a Jesuit!  And the Catholic Church would have nothing to do with his teaching. 

But some of you Protestants are picking up on it right now and its the teaching that every single sign in the Bible was fulfilled by 70 A.D., so we never have to think about any more prophecies for the future because it is over with!  Finished!

Now that is so much baloney, in fact more than Oscar Meyer has ever packaged in his lifetime.

How can this be?  For instance, in Daniel chapter twelve, verse four he said, "at the time of the end knowledge shall be increased. "  It took 1850 years -- that's almost 1800 years past 70A.D. -- to double knowledge in the world.  Now we are doing it every eighteen months.   Doesn't it sound like this is the hour in which that sign is being fulfilled?

Ezekiel chapters thirty-six, thirty-seven, we have the Jews coming back to their own land, and calling that land "Israel,"  in chapters thirty-seven, verse twelve.  When did that ever happen in 70 A.D.?  The Jews were in the Diaspora.  They were scattered around the world.  It's nonsensical.

And then we have the war of Gog, Magog, Mesach, Tubal, Rosh -- actually Russia -- fought in the latter years and latter days.  Ezekiel thirty-eight, verses eight and sixteen.  When did that ever happen? 

And if every sign was fulfilled by 70A.D., what becomes of Matthew 24:27, when Jesus said "as the lightening cometh out of the east and shineth unto the west, so shall also the coming of the son of man be."  And Revelation 1:7, "he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him."  Plus, Revelation was written twenty-six years after 70A.D.

Please, if you are being influenced by this teaching, get out of it!  Don't accept it -- It's wrong!

God's called me to be a spokesman to warn people today, Rexella.

[later in broadcast]

Jack: And again, I talk to you who are proclaiming Preterism:  Martin Luther, in the sixteenth century,  said there would arise in the last days a king of fierce countenance.  Now he said that almost 1,400 years after you guys said that there would be no more fulfillment of prophecies, because it ended in 70A.D.

Ah, yet again Mr. Van Impe defines the terms by which we should interpret Scripture, then interprets according to them. "For instance, in Daniel chapter twelve, verse four he said, at the time of the end knowledge shall be increased.' It took 1850 years -- that's almost 1800 years past 70A.D. -- to double knowledge in the world." Isn't it interesting how Jack defines what the Bibles means by "knowledge" without a single verse to back it up and then interprets an entire passage according to his definition. Where's the exegesis there?

It is amazing that Jack uses the Catholic Church as an authority to dismiss truth, which by the time of Constantine was already corrupt. Early Church Fathers believed in a fulfilled account of 70 AD. Jack also states that the book of REV. was not written until 26 years after 70 AD. Without giving his readers the time date of REV. is debatable. Many believe it was written between 64 and 68 AD. There is only one statement in history that even suggests a late date and as I said it is only a very unclear statement. Jack, if you are going to use such info, it seems only JUST that you present all views to your readers instead of leaving them with only what you want them to see. I came from a denomination that, when in college they taught only their view. If Jesus said the Spirit will teach us truth, than we need all views shown and then we let the Spirit teach us the truth. Man’s doctrines have truth, yet so often is only limited truth. Thus it keeps the followers bound in religion and following men instead of Truth given by God, which brings true freedom. Jack, be fair show all views held in history – not just your view! As for Jesus coming in the clouds, remember how God ruled in the Old Test., from the clouds. They knew God was there, yet they could not see Him. It is true than as Jesus said, “ I do the things the same as my Father did them”. When everyone looked up and saw the cloud above Jerusalem in 70 AD. They knew it was the Lord. Josephus reports it as so. Come on Jack, Follow history not current events. Haven’t you made enough money on people who FAIL to study on their own? Peter said “ we need no man teach us, but the Spirit will teach us all”. It is time to stop tickling peoples ears and let the Spirit teach mankind as Jesus said was His duty. Jack, Rosh is not ever meant to be interpreted as Russia. Again, you attempt to use current events to interpreter the historical facts of the early Church. And how you keep coming up wrong in those interpretations. The fact remains; the Bible is the history of the responses of man to God and His plans. It is far from a complete account, yet gives us the base principles to see how to walk in God’s Kingdom, NOW. The reality is His Kingdom has come; His will is being done (although He does not always get His way because He made us free moral agents) on earth as it is in Heaven. This is Now not in some future period that you seem to try to invent. When are you going to be held accountable for all your wrong interpretations over the years? And yes, there have been many all we have to do is read your early books and see how you continually change to meet to-days headlines. History does prevail if people would study, but you keep people in the dark as to the rest of the story.

It seems strange to me that Jack says a Catholic priest started preterism, when it is a well established fact that dispensationalism was fostered by the translation and dispensing of the writings of a catholic priest by Edward Irving and J.N. Darby. Jack makes a statement, gives a Bible reference (often without quoting it) to prove his point and people believe it because "he said" the Bible says it. Some of his references when checked out have nothing to do with what he is talking about! Did you ever notice that he really never does an in depth study of anything he teaches, only lots of passionate hype to say its all happening now, and yet nothing he has predicted has ever happened yet! A blind leader of the blind, making false statements, false accusations and never an opportunity to discuss the possibility that he might be wrong! Sad, very sad.

You seem just like the media to me. You can make things sound and play to the tune you set. If you really want to make sure the truth comes out -- have God set you up with a tv broadcast that goes to millions of people. He can do that you know! So I should be seeing and hearing you soon? Jered

If a Jesuit created Preterism and you know it is wrong. Why do you teach futurism which also was created by a Jesuit? Try the Historist view point of Daniel and Revelation. You will finally get it right.

One thing that I find particularly interesting, is how movements of thought work. Here you have a movement, and a guy who is explaining that movement. After people here the explanation, they judge the movement based on what they have heard. I will openly admit that there seem to be a million of flaws with every viewpoint, but it is only when a person really studies that they will find the truth. Truth wont just pop out at you. I wont even start with what I think you should believe, Im just saying that you should believe that there IS truth. Now go find it.

To whom it may concern, I read about 1 or 2 pages of the critiscism directed at the Van Impe's and find your ignorance and mockery not worth continued reading. Mr. Van Impe is human and may be mistaken in some of his speculations but is obviously well educated and devoted to what he does, as well as having good intentions about trying to prepare people at what is to come. As terrible as what will take place, Jack & Rexella smile because the time is drawing closer to the coming of the Lord. I can't imagine anything greater taking place. "What a time to be alive!" Kee

Dear Jack: At the "end of the age" knowledge was increased; The spiritual knowledge of experiencing God's salvation through grace, without the trappings of Judaism (or any other religion). Secondly, Ezekiel ezperienced his prophetic vision on the banks of the Euphrates while in captivity. Cyrus' command to rebuild was the fulfilment. Finally, if Revelation was written in 96 AD, why does John speak of the temple and its measurements as though it still existed. The destruction of the city and the temple, and the dispursion of the Jews was, to a Jew, the ultimate catastrophe. John makes no mention of it. Why? Because it was yet future when he wrote the book.

The early church, made up of both jews and gentiles (parable of the mustard seed?), were daily exhorted to live right and to watch for the Lords return. This to me signifies an expectancy that the early church had. If this is true, and the Lord did not return in their life-time as they expected, then they held to a false teaching. This false teaching that they believed came from the teachings of the apostles who were led by Gods spirit. Now why would God allow this? Why no correction to the early church since they did believe that Jesus would soon return?

Dear people, Can you tell me why we should believe clear contextual reference to an immediate timeframe addressing the Israelites in Matthew [especially 23-24] should relate to us? How can a nonexistent race of people be the heirs to the promise fulfilled in the church? Please read Galatians chapter three. There you will see that the heirs to the promise of Abraham are the children of Christ! The people that call themselves Jews today are no more Jewish than I am a Muppet from outer space! Do a little research on the modern “Jew.” You will find that they are white proselytes from Kaza Russia, and can no more trace their family linage to Abraham than Michael Jackson can [though, he would have a good shot at the Muppet line]. Another question I must raise: How does God maintain a dual covenant? To adhere to dispensationalist thought, one must adhere to a dual covenant. In over four years of study – not one solid biblical answer has surfaced! Another point, for someone so caught up on biblical prophecy, the man does not appear to understand biblical language to well…riding on clouds. If you interpret everything literally [as you claim], then resting under the wings of shadow means God is a big chicken! Notice that Matthew wrote to a Hebrew audience. He used language reminiscent of OT prophecy. Luke paralleled it with plain Gentile language. Please, compare the two. Has anyone here read the context of the passages? Does any person here no Greek? I do, and it is clear to whom and what Jesus referred to in Matthew 24 - Jerusalem, its destruction, His judgment on the nation, and…you get the idea, or do you? O my time is so limited. I would love to go on and on…but I am afraid you would be overwhelmed and stop reading! Hey Kee, { posted 17 Feb 2003} Hitler was just a human too! Do you defend his error? Paul said it would be better to have a rock tied around your neck and thrown off a bridge than cause a person to stumble! He said if any man preached another gospel than the one he preached, let that man be accursed – literally – go to hell… Hey Mr. “What are we doing here!” {posted 06 Mar 2003} Try making disciples of people that turn from sins by the grace of God! We were never meant to warn people about a horrible world government! Good night

FROM THE PEN OF JOHN GILL, D.D, OF THE "PARTICULAR BAPTIST" PERSUASION. HE PASSED FROM THIS LIFE ON OCT. 14, 1771: (On Matthew 10:23): "ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, or "finished" them; that is, their tour through them, and their ministry, or the preaching of the Gospel in them, "till the son of man be come; either of his resurrection from the dead, when he was declared to be the Son of God, and when his glorification began; or of the pouring forth of the Spirit at the day of Pentecost, when his kingdom began more visibly to take place, and he was made, or manifested to be the Lord and Christ; or of his coming to take vengeance on his enemies, that would not have him to rule over them, and the persecutors of his ministers, at the destruction of Jerusalem." (On Matthew 21:43): He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, &c.] Which had its accomplishment at the destruction of Jerusalem: according to the other evangelists, these words are the answer of the chief priests, Scribes, and elders, to the above questions put to them by Christ, after he had delivered the parable; but here they seem to be the words of Christ, who also said the same, and confirmed what they had observed, and could not but own, that it was just and right, and what might be expected, with what follows: and shall give the vineyard to others; the land of Judea to the Romans in particular, and the church state, with the Gospel and ordinances of it, to the Gentiles in general, sometimes called "others"; see Gill on "Lu 5:29" and see Gill on "Lu 18:11". and when they heard it, they said, God forbid; though they were their own words, yet repeated and confirmed by Christ, and perceiving that they were the persons intended, deprecate the fulfilment of them; at least so far as they understood they related to the killing of the Messiah, and to the destruction of their nation, city, and temple. (John Gill, Online Bible.) (On Matthew 24:14): Ver. 14. And this Gospel of the kingdom, &c.] Which Christ himself preached, and which he called and sent his apostles to preach, in all the cities of Judah; by which means men were brought into the kingdom of the Messiah, or Gospel dispensation; and which treated both of the kingdom of grace and glory, and pointed out the saints' meetness for the kingdom of heaven, and their right unto it, and gives the best account of the glories of it: shall be preached in all the world; not only in Judea, where it was now confined, and that by the express orders of Christ himself; but in all the nations of the world, for which the apostles had their commission enlarged, after our Lord's resurrection; when they were bid to go into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature; and when the Jews put away the Gospel from them, they accordingly turned to the Gentiles; and before the destruction of Jerusalem, it was preached to all the nations under the heavens; and churches were planted in most places, through the ministry of it: "There was a necessity of the promulgation of it by the will of God, the command and commission of Christ; and for the gathering in of the Jews, that were the elect of God, "among all nations" of the world, especially in the Roman empire; and that "first", or before the destruction of Jerusalem." for a witness unto all nations; meaning either for a witness against all such in them, as should reject it; or as a testimony of Christ and salvation, unto all such as should believe in him: and then shall the end come; not the end of the world, as the Ethiopic version reads it, and others understand it; but the end of the Jewish state, the end of the city and temple: so that the universal preaching of the Gospel all over the world, was the last criterion and sign, of the destruction of Jerusalem; and the account of that itself next follows, with the dismal circumstances which attended it. (On Matthew 24:15, The Abomination of Desolation): Ver. 15. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, &c.] From signs, Christ proceeds to the immediate cause of the destruction of Jerusalem; which was, "the abomination of desolation", or the desolating abomination; or that abominable thing, which threatened and brought desolation upon the city, temple, and nation: by which is meant, not any statue placed in the temple by the Romans, or their order; not the golden eagle which Herod set upon the temple gate, for that was before Christ said these words; nor the image of Tiberius Caesar, which Pilate is said to bring into the temple; for this, if true, must be about this time; whereas Christ cannot be thought to refer to anything so near at hand; much less the statue of Adrian, set in the most holy place, which was an hundred and thirty years and upwards, after the destruction of the city and temple; nor the statue of Titus, who destroyed both, which does not appear: ever to be set up, or attempted; nor of Caligula, which, though ordered, was prevented being placed there: but the Roman army is designed; see #Lu 21:20 which was the ~mfm ~ycwqf @nk, "the wing", or "army of abominations making desolate", #Da 9:27. Armies are called wings, #Isa 8:8 and the Roman armies were desolating ones to the Jews, and to whom they were an abomination; not only because they consisted of Heathen men, and uncircumcised persons, but chiefly because of the images of their gods, which were upon their ensigns: for images and idols were always an abomination to them; so the "filthiness" which Hezekiah ordered to be carried out of the holy place, #2Ch 29:5 is by the Targum called, aqwxyr, "an abomination"; and this, by the Jewish writers {w}, is said to be an idol, which Ahaz had placed upon the altar; and such was the abomination of desolation, which Antiochus caused to be set upon the altar: ``Now the fifteenth day of the month Casleu, in the hundred forty and fifth year, they set up the abomination of desolation upon the altar, and builded idol altars throughout the cities of Juda on every side;'' (1 Maccabees 1:54) And so the Talmudic writers, by the abomination that makes desolate, in #Da 12:11 9:27 to which Christ here refers, understand an image, which they say {x} one Apostomus, a Grecian general, who burnt their law, set up in the temple. Now our Lord observes, that when they should see the Roman armies encompassing Jerusalem, with their ensigns flying, and these abominations on them, they might conclude its desolation was near at hand; and he does not so much mean his apostles, who would be most of them dead, or in other countries, when this would come to pass; but any of his disciples and followers, or any persons whatever, by whom should be seen this desolating abomination, spoken of by Daniel the prophet: not in #Da 11:31 which is spoken of the abomination in the times of Antiochus; but either in #Da 12:11 or rather in #Da 9:27 since this desolating abomination is that, which should follow the cutting off of the Messiah, and the ceasing of the daily sacrifice. It is to be observed, that Daniel is here called a prophet, contrary to what the Jewish writers say {y}, who deny him to be one; though one of {z} no inconsiderable note among them affirms, that he attained to the end, yyawbnh lwbgh, "of the prophetic border", or the ultimate degree of prophecy: when therefore this that Daniel, under a spirit of prophecy, spoke of should be seen, standing in the holy place; near the walls, and round about the holy city Jerusalem, so called from the sanctuary and worship of God in it; and which, in process of time, stood in the midst of it, and in the holy temple, and destroyed both; then whoso readeth, let him understand: that is, whoever then reads the prophecy of Daniel; will easily understand the meaning of it, and will see and know for certain, that now it is accomplished; and will consider how to escape the desolating judgment, unless he is given up to a judicial blindness and hardness of heart; which was the case of the greater part of the nation. {w} R. David Kimchi, & R. Sol. ben Melech, in 2 Chron. xxix. 5. {x} T. Bab. Taanith, fol. 28. 2. & Gloss. in ib. {y} T. Bab. Sanhedrin, fol. 94. 1. & Megilla, fol. 3. 1. & Tzeror Ham, mor, fol. 46. 4. Zohar in Num. fol. 61. 1. {z} Jacchiades in Dan. i. 17. ************************************************* JACK VANIMPE is just another run of the mill dispensationalist that thinks he has the market cornered on prophecy. Holy Writ states: "The law and the prophets were until John". Someone should tell brother Jack that he is no prophet ..... & quit being so enamoured with the catholic church. RT4PT@CS.COM

As a Missionary/Bible Prophecy teacher, I will have to agree that Jack van Impe is a false Teacher on many subjects of scripture ,such as his mindless interpretation of Ezek. 38/39, his absolute fraudulent "Rapture theory" as well as much of his so-called "prophetic" explanation of the book of Daniel. However, having said that, it must also be said, that holding to the "Preterist" position, is nothing less than Sriptural "Idiot'ism", as there is no valid foundation for such thought process. I challenge any and all "Pre-terists" ,to open debate, in a public forum of their choosing. All I can say is; if they accept, they will be humilliated. Thank you .

Jesus said He came to fulfill the law and the prophets words which would include Ezekiel and Daniel's words (Matthew 5:17). Did Jesus bring fulfillment to the prophecies of the old testament or do we continue to wait 2.000 years after Jesus came for the words of Ezekiel and Daniel to be fulfilled? I will put my faith in Jesus words that the old testament is fulfilled. Mr. Van Impe you are teaching that the old testament prophet's words were not fulfilled and therefore you make Jesus out to be someone who has not done what He said he planned to do in fulfilling the law and the prophets of old. Sincerely, D.M.

"How can anyone badmouth ["Dr."] Van Impe?" How indeed.

How many times, Love, in the past two decades has the good "doctor" promulgated the end of the world, the beginning of Armageddon, or the Rapture--complete with dates--only to be proven wrong by the passage of time, alone???

How many times has a "prophet" to be wrong before GOD declares that one a *false* prophet??? (Hint, look at Deuteronomy 18:17-20..the answer's right there in black and white...)

How many of the good "doctor's" academic accolades and credentials are, in fact, honourary and not the result of any actual work on his part? (you'll be shocked and appalled by the answer...)

No, see Love, Van Impe is not a man of GOD, but a man of wealth, and a lover of his own voice and coifed hair. The reason that his broadcasts, these days, are "Paid Programming" is because after his last *major* dated false prophesy (in 1997) he was forced off the air and no network on the planet wanted to deal with him. So now he spreads his message and makes a fortune doing it. Don't believe me--just take a road trip to Michican and have a look at his "ministry" complex, and his "house". These are not the trappings of a modest man preparing for the imminent Rapture, by any stretch of the imagination, but of a wildly successful propagandist who has found a way to become filthy rich off the trust of the witless and unschooled amongst the faithful.

And just for the record, I say this as an Orthodox Catholic cult-exit counselor and catechist who converted from Protestantism--after years of hearing the same mis-comprehensions and misrepresentaions of Catholicism (which an education of the facts proved untrue) as those stated by others above, and on air by good ol' Jack himself.

I watch Jack and Rexella (and record their programs) just so that I can keep a record of how badly he misrepresents the Catholic Faith and twists it for his own purposes, to keep a record of how badly he twists Scripture, and to be up on what is said to make my job easier in dealing with those who actually listen to him and fork over their money for his fat, padded coffers. It's much easier to fight your enemy when he is known to you--and this man is no representative of my Lord and saviour.

Van Impe has no authority from GOD to teach, nor is there any reason to give him cred. Even Satan couches his lies in truth--he's been doing it since the Garden, and he's taught Jack well. His own past is proof of this fact. You should do some research before you sing his praises....

Really simple. Rev 1:1,3. Things which are "at hand" and must "shortly" come to pass can only be explained away by Dispensationalists by appealing to texts that are completely unrelated to the context. The fact that van Impe and Lindsay, et al., have been proven FALSE PROPHETS over and over again should give pause to any who would subscribe to their eschatology, which I used to hold to. While my views are in transition, I tend more towards a partial-preterist view (Gentry, Sproul).

I beleive if everyone would find God for themselves they would not have the confusion of who is right and who is wrong but they would all know him but like through history everyone looks for some great man to have the answer to their problems therefore they will be deceived because in the bible it teaches that if you receive the annoting of the holy ghost you need not that any man teach you but God will teach you and bring all things to your rememberance THAT IS WHY JESUS DIED, FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE THE SAME POWER TO BE ABLE TO TOUCH HIM

I think Dr. VanImpe is Right. I also think you should check yourselves, sounds to me like you all want to spend all your time trying to prove that you're right and everyone else is wrong. I believe that's called being "Puffed Up". When you stand before Christ one day. you will be accountable, so if you're right or wrong, you might want to check you attitude towards fellow Christians.

who gives you the right to judge jack or any one? and if god called on you to be his spokeman than he would not have you do it like this. It also reads in the bible, judge not thee,and thee is not to be judged.The Lord would ask you to just preach and let others believe what they want so go teach what you believe and let the lord do the judgeing

I find that the more I hear from Jack, the more I don't want to hear anymore. Just because you have some scriptures memorized doesn't make your view point right. More often than not, the quoted verses are taken completely out of context and misapplied by Jack. For instance Rev.4:1 is not the rapture of the church. It was directed to John. How can any reasonable person find the rapture in this verse? I have heard jack say that the word church is not mentioned after this verse, so it must apply to the rapture. What sense does that make? The word "churches" appears in Rev. 22:16. Even so, this type of hermeneutic is non sensical and unscriptural. Shame on you Jack. I believe the only thing you're really trying to proclaim is your offer of the month. That's your queue Chuck!

We are just a bunch of people on a piece of dirt who know everything. Amillenialish I guess is what I am "sort-of". I leave considerable room in the interpreting of biblical prophecy though. I think we all should. I dont consider my position to be absolutely correct.

Dear Mr Van Impe.
You are a Doctor so I suppose you know. The only empire resembling the power and priviledge of the ancient Roman Empire is our own. Why do you keep saying the second beast is a European Union Leader? Are you God? Forgive my sarcasm, but I am sure you must know who the second beast is by now. But if you revealed this would you have your ministry destroyed. Please don't be afraid to search for the truth.

I don't agree with Preterism. But I do wonder why Jack has not adequately ever (as far as I know) explained the reason that 1844 wasn't a real prohpetic date, which had significance. How can he agree with the 69 weeks' cutoff, which virtually all Christians unite on, but then say nothing on the 2300 days? I don't understand logically how 1 year equals a day up until the death of the messiah and then have it mysterisouly cancelled.

Jack and Rexella are on a good wicket, they know how to twist current news reports and the scriptures and catch the gullible.

Alien spirits from outer space according to Jack are now invading the planet. He quotes single verses and never uses anything in context and then paints continuos imaginary scenarios. I think it is a shame that they should make a mockery of the christian faith.

Mt 23:24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

He must have fulfilled this scripture every time he professes his superior knowledge.

He has no concept of Audience Relevence or the historical context of the New Testament at all.

We all make mistakes from time to time , yet Jack cannot even see his own.

The scripture is Christ centered , and giving Christ's covenant in the middle of Daniels 70th week to a imaginary Antichrist who is still to appear almost 2000 years later is the height of human folly.

But this scarecrow of Jack's brings the cash in from his admirers.

Granted I am only human and not a theologian, which by the way may not be al all together bad thing as I feel many who began fully faithful believers who have all but died of spiritual loss of soul, rendering God invalid because of too much study-nearly convinced themselves it is not real; tried to make it almost scientific in nature-I do not hold to Preterism philosphies. It is astounding how much goes astray with much detriment to the Body of Christ with nutty things like this. I love history and have studied it. I must have snoozed that day in my World History class in school and in Sunday School when this all things have been met with no other prophecies to be coming down the pike! It very distrubing to me what all we pick and choose to believe out of Scripture and no where is it more dangerous than to tell the world that it all is done...IF this concept is true, then why has the Messiah not already come a second time? Sometimes I feel that we dwell on things that are truly trivial and unimportant regarding the Bible. For example there was a book written by a fella that said the early Christians did not worship Christ as we do today-he included the ones who were his deciples, too. Another man wrote a book to counter claims made by his fellow writer on this insisting that they did in fact worship Christ whilst still upon this earth. In the grand scheme of it all does this REALLY MATTER and am I going to fry in damnation if I choose not to subscribe to this belief? I think not! That is such a low priority on the list of things we Christians today need to deal with-perhaps should not even be an issue. And, I think that while view like the one just mentioned on opposing arguments of how or if Christ was worshipped in his lifetime as now is totally irrelevant; howver, false directions and teachings like Preterism can not and must not be ignored. Too much evil is the teachings whereby Satan takes truth mixing with lies to confuse. And, you know what? Most Christians today ARE CONFUSED, BLINDED, IGNORANT to!
what God and the Bible really says. This notion of Preterism sounds hopeless and dismal if you think about it. I get feeling that the author and teachers through the years pushing this are utterly lost and without any hope, joy, or excitement of the Lord. I just sensed in that definition of it that in my mind under this concept of false doctrine that world lies in a wasteland of dust that is dried up and useless. And, exactly how blinded the many are with strange notions totally unfounded and baseless get to point of popularity to where it is a normal ideal behooves me. I don't mean to sound judgmental and ask all to forgive me if I do, but for us who proclaim Christ as our sovereign savior and are fooled by this kind of thing begs one to ponder if they ever really knew Christ at all? I don't think they do and it may head up under category of ignorance which is not a viable point. The Bible is literal, it is current, it is a must, it is not hard to understand. You either BELIEVE IT OR YOU DON'T. You BELIEVE EACH PERIOD, WORD, AND VERSE without exception. For those unclear I would suggest asking the Holy Spirit to elighten them for he will. I just feel really sorry for this kind of Christian. And, you know, I wonder how much more stern the punishment and suffering willbe heaped upon those who once were ministers, rabbis, priests, etc. spreading unholy interpretations of the Divine Scriptures of God? They were and are supposed to know and be the leaders teaching us laymen about the faith. How they came to be duped is astounding but I think they possibly could suffer worse in torment than perhaps others also condemned. I don't know if that is true, but is only my opinion. No, sir! I don't like this idea of prophetic events having all been dispensed and none are to follow. When we say things like this it is like calling God a liar. Thanks for being bold and telling truth. But, you know, Jack-we were told of false teachers and people of God...is this warning of false teachers not a continual unfolding prophetic prom!
ise in and of itself? So, then it is proof positive that Preterism is not valid and is a filthy lie used with sole intent to ensnare sould for Satan. Funny, but I don't think that was the aim and intent to disporove thier own statement of Preterism. The constant prophetic promise of false teaching by false teachers/prophets is prophecy being always continually shown. I know those bent to that way of thinking didn't anticipate that little wrinkle in fabric of beliefs.
