also says the law.

referring to what Corinthians had written and

Thus, he clearly indicated that he

the belief that
ALL Bible prophecy was fulfilled by 70 A.D.
includes all prophecies about the Rapture, the
tribulation, the Antichrist, the Second Coming
of Christ, the Millennium, the White Throne
Judgment, and the New Heavens and New earth.
While 70 A.
D. WAS a significant prophetic year in which
the Roman 10th legion under Titus' command
destroyed Jerusalem, one
has to be a blind fool to believe that Jesus
RETURNED and ESTABLISHED HIS KINGDOM ON EARTH
in or around 70 A.D.
IS PRECISELY what preterists believe.
Furthermore, preterism believes that this
putrid hell hole in which we live is the New
Earth promised in Revelation 21:1; that
Hades/Sheol no longer exists, and that upon
dying Christians immediately receive new
resurrected, glorified bodies.
Apparently, they've never read 1 Corinthians
15:50-55 or 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 which
plainly state WE SHALL NOT ALL DIE but will be
TRANSFORMED into immortal beings in a moment
and WITHOUT DYING.

belief THAT SIN IS HERE TO STAY: That
sin IS ETERNAL and cannot be remedied, thus
making the Blood of Jesus INSUFFICIENT AND

has removed ALL SIN FOR ALL TIME (Psalm
103:12; John 1:29; 2 Corinthians 5:19; Hebrews

"Little children, IT IS THE LAST HOUR; and as
you have heard that the Antichrist is coming,
even now many antichrists have come, by
which WE KNOW THAT IT IS THE LAST HOUR".
It's safe to
say with regards to Jesus' return, that the
apostles were not thinking in terms of the
distant future, let alone 2,000 years later.
when the New Testament was written in the first
century A.D., they believed that the Rapture,
end of the world, and the return of Christ were

STILL "NEAR", THEN HOW CAN ANYONE BELIEVE that
all these things were fulfilled by 70 A.D.?
maybe not by 70 A.D., but certainly they were

years ago, at Mount Sinai, God gave Moses the
Torah comprised of 613 commandments.
commandments are greater than others.
teachers of the law (scribes) understood this:
that's why they
asked Jesus "teacher, which is THE GREATEST
commandment in the law?" (Matthew
that the 10 Commandments are the greatest
because the tablets of stone on which they were
engraved were placed inside the Ark of the
Covenant, whereas the
5 books of Moses (the
ENTIRE Torah or, as gentiles call it, the
Pentateuch) was PLACED BESIDE THE ARK
However, that's NOT what Jesus said or taught.

NOT one of the 10.

THE RAPTURE &
rapture happen on a Feast?
I can think
of at least FOUR passages of Scripture where
God says that "the end" (Second Coming) must
happen at an appointed time or Feast (lemoed) (Daniel
8:19; 11:27, 29, 35).
found ONE verse of Scripture that says the
Rapture MUST happen on an appointed feast.
a Feast? Yes.
MAKE SENSE if
it did? Yes.
Does it HAVE
on a feast? NO.
our Messianic brothers are convinced that the
Rapture must happen on Yom Teruah.
that the expression used by Jesus that "no one
knows the day or the hour" is a Hebrew idiom
for that two-day Feast.
I have to
confess I'm somewhat skeptical:
If that were
the case, since
Jesus is Jewish, and doubtlessly well
acquainted with Jewish idioms and with that
Feast, wouldn't He HAVE
If it is a
Hebrew idiom that refers to Yom Teruah why
would Jesus say that NO ONE back in the first
century, not Him, not the angels, knew?
Even IF it
were a Hebrew idiom,
Yom Teruah is not the only "uncertain day" in
the Hebrew calendar, since EVERY ROSH CHODESH
is also uncertain, given that per God's
explicit instructions the new moon must be
visible in Israel in order for that month to

as Hoshana Rabba or The Great Salvation.
