SOME DISTINCTIVE DOCTRINES OF SYSTEMATIZED
It is important to keep in mind that many ideas and doctrines
full preterism appeals to - such as the complete end of the Old
Covenant world in AD70 - are by no means distinctive to that view.
Many non HyPs believe this as well, so one need not embrace the Hyper
Preterist system in order to endorse this view. Following
are exceptional doctrines which, so far as I've seen, are only taught by
adherents of Hyper Preterism.:

Babylon The Great of Revelation
Don K. Preston
"The coming of Jesus as foretold in Revelation was at hand
(Revelation 22:6, 10-12, 20). The coming of Jesus as foretold in Revelation
was to come at the end of the millennium. Therefore, the end of the
millennium was at hand." (Who is this Babylon? p. 259)
Everyone agrees that the book of Revelation predicts the fall of Babylon; what they do not agree upon is the identity of Babylon. Some say it is Rome, Roman Catholicism, a modern day world-wide church, or apostate Christianity as a whole. One thing is certain, the interpretation of Revelation and thus much of the Bible, hinges upon who Babylon is or was.
In Revelation the coming of Christ, the New Creation, judgment and resurrection are associated with the fall of Babylon. To mistakenly identify Babylon is to incorrectly interpret these issues. Whatever one makes Babylon to be these issues are inextricably linked with her fall! Can we identify Babylon? Yes indeed!
Revelation 16:6; 17:1-6; 18:20, 24 tell us that Babylon was drunk with the blood of the prophets. This is a critical point! The term "the prophets" appears 88 times in the New Testament. The overwhelmingly normal usage of the term refers to Old Testament prophets.
Now the city of Rome, the Roman Catholic church, apostate Christianity, nor any modern world-wide church ever persecuted Old Testament prophets! But Babylon of Revelation did, therefore none of these can be identified as Babylon; it is just that simple! What city persecuted the Old Testament prophets and filled the Cup of her Sin by so doing? It was Jerusalem.
Comparing Matthew 23 with Revelation plainly reveals this. In Matthew 23:31 Jesus said it was Jerusalem that had killed the prophets; in Revelation it is Babylon. In Matthew 23:32 Jesus said the Jews were about to fill the cup of their sin by continuing to persecute those sent to her; in Revelation 17 Babylon has filled her cup by persecuting not only the prophets of old but the followers of Jesus as well, 17:6. In Matthew 23:35 Jesus said Jerusalem was guilty of "all the blood shed on the earth," 23:35; in Revelation 18:24 Babylon bears the guilt for "all the blood shed on the earth." In Matthew 23:36 Jesus said judgment on Jerusalem for killing the prophets would come in his generation; in Revelation Jesus said "Behold, I come quickly" 22:6, 10, 12, 20. Such parallels are not accidental!
Finally, the Great City Babylon is "spiritually called Sodom," Rev. 11:8; and the only city in the Bible--other than historical Sodom--that is ever called Sodom is Jerusalem, Isaiah 1:10; Jer. 23:14, Ezek. 16:44f. Babylon is also "where the Lord was crucified" Rev. 11:8. Jesus was not crucified in Rome, or by the Catholic church; Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem!
Avenging the Prophets
One of the major themes of Revelation is the avenging of the martyrs. This theme is stated in chapter 6:9ff; 11:11-19; 17:4-6; 18:20, 24, to cite a few passages. The judgment of Revelation is on "Babylon" the city "drunken with the blood of the saints" and "all those slain on the earth," 17:6; 18:24. Who was Babylon?
Many believe it was Rome because the city was said to "sit on many waters" 17:2; and to rule over the kings of the earth, 17:18. But "waters" in Revelation often signifies "people" or nations instead of "H2O." See Revelation 13:1ff where the beast arose out of the "sea." Further, the city of Jerusalem was "supreme, and presided over all the neighboring country as the head does over the body" so says Josephus the Jewish historian of the first century. He also called Jerusalem "the great city" Every designation of "Babylon" in the book of Revelation was used by secular writers of the first century to describe the city of Jerusalem!
More importantly, as just seen, Jesus defined Jerusalem as the persecuting city drunken with the blood of the saints. In Matthew 23:31-39 Jesus said it was Jerusalem that had slain the prophets through the ages. He said he would send them prophets and they would slay them also. He also said the blood of the martyr's all the way back to Abel would be judged in that generation, vss. 35-36! Read Matthew 23:29-36 side by side with Revelation 18 and see the perfect correlation.
The Bible places the blame for persecuting the church squarely at the feet of Israel/Jerusalem; not on Rome!
It was the Sanhedrin that beat Peter and John, Acts 4-5; and stoned Stephen, Acts 6-7. The Jews instigated a "great persecution" against the church in Jerusalem, Acts 8. Saul the persecutor of the early church had letters of authority from the High Priest to persecute Christians, Acts 9:2-3. Even Herod, when persecuting the church did so to please the Jews, Acts 12:1-3. The Jews in Antioch stirred up the city against Paul, Acts 13:50. The Jews stirred up the Gentiles to persecute Paul in Iconium and Derbe, Acts 14:4ff, 19f. At Thessalonica the Jews "set all the city in an uproar" attempting to kill Paul, Acts 17:5f. The Jews attempted to involve the Romans against Paul but they refused to persecute him, Acts 18:12ff. The Romans actually rescued Paul from the Jews, Acts 21:27-40.
While the Gentiles participated in persecution against the early church, blame for instigating the persecution was pointed by Biblical writers at the Jews "who have both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men," 1 Thessalonians 2:15f.
If Revelation was written in A.D. 95-98 as is generally suggested, Rome had only persecuted the church for about four years! Nero, at the instigation of the Jews, persecuted the church from approximately A.D. 64-68. It is now being admitted that Domitian did not actually persecute the church! Are we to believe that Revelation ignores Jerusalem, the city that had persecuted the saints for centuries, and focuses on the destruction of a city that had persecuted the saints for only four years?!?
Babylon was Jerusalem of the first century as we have suggested then the modern ideas of a coming Armaggedon, a millennium, and "end of time" judgment are false concepts. What more evidence is there that Babylon was Jerusalem of the first century?
In Revelation 14:6f John's vision revealed an angel with the gospel to preach to all the world with the message of the soon coming judgment on Babylon. When the gospel had been preached to all the world we find the coming of the Lord in judgment because the sin of the land was full, vs. 14ff. The elements of concern here are 1.] the preaching of the gospel into all the world; 2.] the filling of the measure of sin; 3.] the soon coming of the Lord. Notice the comparison chart of Revelation 14 and Matthew.
Preaching to all the world, 24:14
Message of judgment, 23:34-35
Filling the measure of sin, 23:32
Judgment in Jesus' generation, 23:34; 24:34
Preaching to all the world, 14:6
Message of judgment, 14:7
Harvest is fully ripe, 14:15f
The hour of his judgment has come, 14:7
This chart shows the perfect harmony between Jesus' prediction against Jerusalem and Revelation's prediction of coming judgment against "Babylon." Can it be shown that the gospel was preached into all the world before Jerusalem fell?
In Romans 10:18; 16:25-26 the apostle said, about 60 A.D., that the gospel had been preached to all the nations in all the world. In Colossians 1:5-7, 23, about 63-64 A.D., he said the gospel had been preached "to every creature under heaven." In Titus 2:11 he said the gospel had appeared to all men. If we are going to accept scripture the Bible says the gospel was preached in all the world before the fall of Jerusalem!
Now unless one can demonstrate that there were to be two great commissions to be preached into all the world, declaring the imminent coming judgment upon two cities that were about to fill the measure of sin by persecuting the saints of God, then consistency demands that we identify
Babylon as Jerusalem of the first century. It was Jerusalem that was to fill the measure of her sin by killing the prophets; Jerusalem that Jesus said the gospel would be preached world-wide before her fall; Jerusalem that was to see his coming in his generation.
Babylon was first century Jerusalem.

If The Paragraphs Interest You, Feel Free To Continue And Contact Me For The Full Study. email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
God says the exact thing through out the Bible. He just says it a different way. Genesis Chapter 31 talks about the son(s) taking the father's glory. That chapter talks about the Angel of God (Michaeal the Archangel), and the images or gods. That chapter also talks about "God is with us". Genesis 49:33 talks about the father of Israel (Jacob) lying down in death, commanding his sons, as all the people are gathered unto him. Authorized King James Version. Deuteronomy Chapter 31 talks about the fathers sleeping in death (Deuteronomy 31:16), and the worship of the gods (Genesis 31:16), and God no longer being among the people (Genesis 31:17).
Moses also makes an end, just as Jacob made in end in Genesis 49:33; Deuteronomy 31:24. The Bible then begins to talk about that gathering again (Genesis 49:33; Deuteronomy 31:28. This "gathering" is the end of this physical world as God changes everything into Spirit. That Spirit is symbolized by Michael the Archangel (Michael's name means "Who is the image of God", "Who is like unto God", "Who exists in God's image/likeness"). Read Exodus 14: 19-20; Exodus 15:11; Matthew 24:3, 31; Revelation 1:10; Daniel 12:1; 1 Corinthians 15:51; John 2:24; 2 Peter 3:10-13; Revelation 21:1-5; Psalms 104::4-5; John 3:16 Also notice how John Chapter 10 talks about the Son being One with the Father, the judges, and the gods (John Chpater 10:30, 33-34-36; John 17:21-24).
When the Bible asks, "who will remove the stone that blocked Jesus in his tomb?(Mark 16:3)", it was telling us that Michael the Archangel (Who is the likeness/image of God) will be "born" when God destroys this physical world (Revelation 12:1-5, 6-12). It was Michael, this Angel of the Lord Who appeared when Christ was born (Luke 2:9-11). It was Michael who sat on the rock, after he rolled that rock away from Jesus's tomb (Matthew 28:2; Mark 16:3). Sitting is a Biblical symbol for Judgment Day (Matthew 27:19; Matthew 25:31-46). Standing, "arising", "getting up", is a Biblical symbol for the arising (entrance) of the flesh now changed into Spirit into Heaven (Daniel 12:1; 1 Corinthians 15:50; Revelation 11:3-4, 7-12, Acts 7:55-56). Thus "falling" in the Bible denotes the Judgment/Removal of this physical world (Revelation 11:11; Revelation 12:4, 9-12).

The Crucifixion, the Burning Bush, and the entire Bible point to the Coming Again of Jesus. This will be the Last Day of the physical world (John 6:39-54; John 14:1-4,28; Matthew 24:3). This article will utilize the Authorized King James Bible version.
Let’s examine how the Burning Bush, and Christ’s Crucifixion really point to the Day of the Lord, which is the Last Day of this physical world (Revelation 1:10; Matthew 24:3; John 6:39-54).
The Burning Bush of Exodus Chapter 3 points to the Regenerative (Matthew 19:28; Matthew 25:31-46) Judgment Day which occurs at Christ’s Coming Again. Christ’s Coming Again will be the End of God’s Physical Creation. Please examine all the Bible scriptures with this study (Matthew 24:3; Matthew 28:18-20; John 14:1-5, 28; John 6:39-54; 1 John 4:1;
2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Timothy 4:16).
Exodus Chapter 3
The Burning Bush symbolizes the Last Day/End of this physical world which is the Coming Again of Christ. God will baptize all those going into Heaven in the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and Fire which is the Everlasting Lake of Fire and Brimstone. ALL THE PHYSICAL WORLD MUST BE JUDGED JUST AS JESUS WAS JUDGED (PONTIUS PILATE'S "JUDGMENT SEAT" Acts 2:23-28; John 19:13; Matthew 25:31-46; Matthew 3:11; John 3:5; Revelation 19:20-21; Revelation 20:10). THE BIBLE CALLS THE JUDGMENT DAY OF THE LORD “THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE”. THIS LAKE IS THE BAPTISM OF HOLY GHOST AND FIRE. Please read, study, examine and pray about all the scriptures in this paragraph and entire article. God is certain to “open the eyes” of those truly interested in His “Last Day/Coming Again” “mystery” (1 Samuel 14:27; Revelation 17:1,5). God is the Fire of the Bible. God is the Stone/Rock of the Bible (Deuteronomy 4:24; Psalm 18:2).
Through out the Bible, you see that Angel of the Lord, the "I AM" appearing. This Angel appears because all those who God "changes/burns" (1 Corinthians 15:51; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 1:10) into Spirit at the Coming Again will become One with God (John 17:21). They will become the "gods"/Angel of the Lord. "I Am the Son of God" (Exodus 3:14; John 19:21; John 10:35-36;Revelation 21:7).
Towards the end of this study, we will analyze the word “Archangel or Arch Angel” and see how the Regenerative Day Of The Lord is in that word (Matthew 19:28; Jude 9; 2 Peter 3:10).
Here are the supporting scriptures for your consideration:
God will Change Himself, Restore, Refresh, Restitute, Regenerate Himself (Be Born Again-Begotten) with His entire physical creation at the Coming Again End of His physical World. Some of the names God uses to describe this Regenerated Being is God the Son, Elias, Michael the Archangel (Body of Christ/Moses Jude 9), and many many other names (Mark 15:34-35; Exodus 31:17; Titus 3:5; Matthew 19:28; Exodus 22: 1,12; Matthew 24:30-35; John 10:7; Exodus 23:12; Hebrews 3:11-19; Hebrews 4: 1-12; 1 Corinthians 15:51; Revelation 21:7; John 3:1-16).
The man, the Son, Jesus actually pointed to all humans Who God will Change into Spirit (Revelation 21:7) (His Likeness (Genesis 1:26-27)- "Michael" means "Who Is Like Unto God". And Michael is that Arch Angel Who all the saints of God become in Heaven (Michael is the Body Of Christ/Moses-Jude 9)). The man who is born again in John Chapter 3 is actually God (Exodus 15:3; 1 Timothy 2:5-8; 1 Corinthians 15:51). This changed/regenerated Spirit is the Born Again “Son” of God. God will rebirth/refresh/regenerate/restore/restitute/beget Himself with His physical world into this Spirit “Son of God” (Revelation 21:7; 1 Corinthians 15:50-51; John 3:1-19; Revelation 1:10; Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5; Exodus 31:17; John 4:24).
God will change (the Bible compares this change to "God's death") Himself and become Born Again into God the Son (Begotten of God during the Regenerative Lake of Fire and Brimstone/Baptism of Holy Ghost and Fire, Judgment Day).
See Genesis 49:33-notice how Jacob “ends the commandments to his sons”. Jacob then gathers up his feet into his bed, yields up the ghost, and is gathered unto or with his people.
Just as every scripture in the Bible points to the last day (John 6:39-54; Matthew 24:3), Genesis 49:33 is pointing to the end of the physical world (Matthew 24:3) where God gathers all his physical creation back to Himself in the Lake of Fire and Brimstone which is the Regeneration.
This Regenerative Lake Of Fire and Brimstone is the “preparation/make ready/prepare/the gathering” that the Bible speaks about (Matthew 19:28; Matthew 27:62; Matthew 24:30-35; Revelation 16:12; Ezekiel 38:7). The Regenerative Lake Of Fire And Brimstone “dries up” (Exodus 14:16,21,29; Genesis 1:10; Revelation 12:9) the physical watery saints into Spirit/Angel of God, preparing that Spirit’s entrance into Heaven at Christ’s Coming Again. This “Dried” “Land” is Heaven, which is God’s earth (Genesis 1:10; Psalms 24:1). The Spirit’s entrance into Heaven is the “clouds of Heaven” which is the Last Day End of the Physical Universe (Hebrews 12:1;Matthew 19:28; Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 16:12; Genesis 1: 2, 6-7, 9; Matthew 24: 30-35; Revelation 11:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46; 2 Peter 3:7-12; Revelation 17:15-16; Revelation 1:10; 1 Corinthians 15:50-51; Daniel 12:1; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; John 14:1-5, 28; Matthew 24:3; John 6:39-54).
This is why there will be no “sea” in Heaven. The Biblical “sea” represents the “watery” humans of this physical world (Revelation 21:3; Revelation 17:15-16). The physical night of “Satan’s” rulership will be judged and destroyed in God’s Last Day Fire. This is the second death, and is also called the consumation (Deuteronomy 9:3;Genesis 1:16-18; Revelation 12:1; Revelation 21:5; Revelation 20:14; Revelation 21:8; Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15, 21).
The Biblical “Great Tribulation” is the “Time of Trouble/Time of the End/Latter ‘Days’” God’s Last Day Judgment Day upon His physical creation (Revelation 7:9-17; Daniel 11:40-45; Daniel 12:1-2).
Let’s return to Genesis 49:33. Jacob’s feet symbolize God’s rulership which is God’s coming Kingdom (Isaiah 66:1; Revelation 12:1-7; Matthew 6:9-13). The bed symbolizes God’s Sabbath rest which will occur on the Last Day of this physical world into the Spirit (John 4:24; 1 Corinthians 15:50-51; Hebrews chapter 3:6-16; Hebrews 4:1-12-the Sabbath rest of God).
Jacob’s “sons” (Genesis 49:33) symbolize those who are regenerated into Heaven (Matthew 19:28; John 14:1-5,28). These “sons” become one with God and are the Son of God (Revelation 21:7; John 17:21-22). Jesus also yielded up the ghost as Jacob did, when Jesus died (Genesis 49:33;Matthew 27:50). On the last day of the physical world, God is gathered with His physical creation (the people) into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone (Matthew 25:31-46) and changed into the Spirit’s eternity-“cast” “alive” (1 Corinthians 15:50-51; John 4:24; Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20: 10, Revelation 20:14; Revelation 21:8; John 3:16; Revelation 12:12- cast “down” to God’s earth, the dry land-Genesis 1:10-God’s earth is this new “Heaven”-Psalm 24:1; Revelation 21:1-5; John 14:1-5; 2 Peter 3:7-13).
The physical world “Satan and his ‘angels’” die the second death in that fire. This is the consummation of the abomination that makes desolate (see Daniel 9:25-27 and Matthew 24:15). This is also the burning of the flesh (physical) of Babylon-the physical kingdom (Revelation 17:16). The Bible calls the fiery destruction of the physical world, “the eating of the flesh (physical)” or “eating of meat”. This eating is the Last Day “supper of the Great God” (Revelation 19: 17-18).
The entire Bible points to this Last Day in every single verse. The "Beginning" of Genesis 1 actually points to this Last Day of this Physical World. That Last Day is God's Beginning of His Heavenly Spirit Kingdom at the Coming Again (Ephesians 1:4; John 17:24; Psalm 104:4)
Exodus 3:1-22-Burning Bush, The Baptism of Fire and Holy Ghost, The Spirit of God, The Lake Of Fire and Brimstone, God is A Consuming Fire- Deuteronomy 9: 3; Matthew 3:11; Revelation 20:1-2,10; The Man Who is Born Again is God the Father Begetting/Regenerating into God the Son with all God’s physical creation (the “angels”)-the Man Child- 1 Timothy 2:5; John 3:3-6; Revelation 12:1-12; Psalms 104:4; Matthew 24:30-35; Matthew 25:31-46; Hebrews 12:1; Daniel 7:13; John 14:1-5; Matthew 24:3 Last Day End of the Physical World-John 6:39-54; Matthew 24:3; 2 Peter 3:7-13; John 14:28; Daniel 11:40 thru Daniel 12 (Entire Chapter)
The entire physical creation must be "changed", judged, consumed, burned with fire before it can enter Heaven as The Spirit becoming the "gods", the "angels", or One With God 1 Corinthians 15:50-52; John 4:24; John 10:34-35; Isaiah 43:1,7; Matthew 22:30; Matthew 25:31-46; John 17:21.
This Judgment Day/ Coming Again burning change of the physical/flesh into the Angel Spirit is the Lake of Fire and Brimstone’s Regeneration. It is the Baptism of Holy Ghost and Fire (Matthew 3:11; Revelation 20:4,9-10, Revelation 21:8; John 14:28; 1 Corinthians 15:51; Revelation Chapter 1-The Day of the Lord (Christ’s Day-The Coming Again).
The Regenerated Spirit from the Burning Flesh-Physical becomes the Angels (Let Us plural- Michael-“One (God)-of the Seven Angels”) of Heaven. Michael the Archangel, the Body of Christ/God Jude 9; Matthew 22:30; Revelation 12:7-12; The Regeneration’s Burning Matthew 19:28; Burning of the Fleshly Physical World on the Last Day/End (Revelation 17:1,16; Matthew 25:31-46
The Biblical word "One" is always referring to or symbolizing God Who is One and Who becomes One with His regenerated saints/angels (Deuteronomy 6:4; Revelation 17:1; Mark 12:29; John 17:21; Matthew 19:28).
The Biblical Angels of Heaven are really all those changed from flesh-physical to Spirit (Regeneration-Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5; Galatians 5:16-25; 1 Corinthians 15:51; Psalms 104:4)
They all become One God in the Likeness of God. Michael "Who is Like unto God" (John 17:21; John 4:24; Genesis 1:26; Exodus 14:19; Exodus 15:11-"Who Is Like Unto Thee, O Lord"-Michael-Who Is Like God).
Now Let’s Study the Crucifixion of Jesus. This crucifixion pointed to the Last Day judgment on God, which allowed sin into the physical world (See Job Chapter One). God, the Father will “kill”, “change”, give up the Godhead (Holy Ghost), as He becomes One with his changed Spirit creation (John 4:24; 1 Corinthians 15:51 ). This changed Spirit is changed from the physical world. They are the “saints” of God. God is the man of John Chapter 3 who is reborn (1 Timothy 2:5; Exodus 15:3). The Godhead will beget Himself in to the New Regenerated Godhead (God the Son John 3:16) on the Last Day Coming Again.
Pontius Pilate symbolized God "sitting in the seat of Judgment" judging the physical man/human Jesus (Matthew 27:17-19). The "common hall" is the Communion where God becomes "One" with those regenerated. The Bible calls this the "gathering of the people, or the people gathering". The gathering is the Regeneration (Matthew 27: 27; Matthew 24:30-35; Genesis 49:33).
Once again, we see that the Archangel/Trumpet Voice of God appears during this Gathering (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Matthew 24:30-35; Exodus 19:16).
Jesus (Come Quickly-Revelation 22:20) rose on the third day by the Spirit, as Jesus’ physical body was no longer found (“found not” no longer found means no Heavenly Salvation-refer to Revelation 12:7-8; Revelation 22:20; Luke 24:3; 1 Peter 3:18; John 4:24) God’s fleshly/physical kingdom of sin will be burned and “eaten” in the Lake of Fire and Brimstone on the Last Day of this physical world (Revelation 17:16; Galatians 5:17-26). This is the “supper of the great God” (Revelation 21:17; Revelation 17:16).
Thus, at the Coming Again of Christ (John 4:28), God will change from God the Father

Nonsense. Rome is the City of Seven Hills, the pope is the one who had the
wound unto death and recovered. The roman catholic church is the one drunken
with the blood of the Saints under the Inquisition. This is a rich church,
and the "priests" and the "pope" dress in robes of the old covenant. They go
directly against the word of God repeatedly. Revelation is clear that it is
Rome -- roman catholic "pope" who sits on the throne at the vatican as the
vicar of Christ or substitute for Christ. There is only one Head of Jesus
Christ's Church, and it is Jesus Christ. He has no substitute or co-ruler as
the pope claims.
