This is probably a light-hearted discussion, but...Dave is right. He IS coming back...not 'already has come back'. And the gameplan is clear: He is coming back, in the skies, at the sound of the trumpet. And by the way, prophecy is not and never has been a 'one time event'. God's Prophetic Words reverberate throughout the history of man. And it always points to the coming Christ, our hope and assurance of our salvation. So for you preterist, all I can think to say is what HE said: 42 "Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43 "But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44 "For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. 45 "Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 "Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. 47 "Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 "But if that evil slave says in his heart, ‘My master is not coming for a long time,’. 49 and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards;. 50 the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, 51 and will cut him in pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Hi, Dave. Always great to see you!

I actually occasionally teach classes at the local congregation I attend. I have read through many study bibles, and am currently studying the broader historical context of the times and cultures around the Jews and early christians. To me the interpretations the apostles had of Jesus' words are not "unrelated things," to understanding what Jesus meant by His words. Can you please explain to me the rules of biblical interpretation you are using that would put them in that category?

A wonderful and correct view on the end times. Even before the Lord ascended to heaven the disciples were asking about the Kingdom. Jesus gave us His perspective in Acts Chapter 1 vs 7-8. This confirms what is being said in the video. Thank you so much.

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, MISS GRACE ! WHEN YOU MENTION THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA , WE KNOW WHO HE IS !!! CHRISTIANS HAVE A MISSION WHICH SO MANY DO NOT HAVE . CHASING FOR THINGS ,MONEY, LUSTS, AND POWER NEVER WILL MAKE A PERSON HAPPY OR CONTENT . KNOWING JESUS GIVES ME PURPOSE AND DESIRE TO DO HIS WILL NOT MY OWN WILL, AN IN THAT IS GREAT FREEDOM ....OUR GOD REIGNS !!!

Larry Lewis, Amen. The Word of Jesus is holy, sacred and perfect! (You are kind to be my friend.)

Grace Kim Kwon I WASN'T JUST BEING KIND, KIM . I WAS BEING TRUTHFUL . WHEN I SEE OTHER 'TRUE ' CHRISTIANS SPEAK OUT WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT PUTS ON THEIR HEART ; I JUST WANT TO REJOICE BECAUSE THERE SEEMS TO BE FEWER AND FEWER WHO WILL TAKE A STAND FOR JESUS AND HIS HOLY , SACRED AND PERFECT WORD

  • 2012-03-10T07:21:11

IT IS SO TRUE WHAT YOU SPEAK , MY SISTER IN THE FAMILY OF GOD . JESUS PERFECTS US BY HIS ATONING BLOOD THAT HE SHED AT THE CROSS . HIS BRIDE WILL BE PERFECTED WHEN HE ARRIVES TO HAVE TRUE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIS BRIDE (US) FOREVER AND EVER .

@Larry Lewis: Yes, sir, we await His 1,000-year-rule after His Second Advent that will further reveal truth about Him and about us. A day seems 1,000 years waiting for Jesus, but it's really good to live to wait for Him doing His will. Thank you for your kindness.

IN FACT , THERE ARE MANY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS MESSIANIC JEWS NOW AND, THE NUMBERS ARE GROWING DAILY !

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENTARY, GRACE KIM KWON . YOU HAVE SHOWN A GOOD BIBLICAL HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF TIME IN THE WAITING FOR CHRIST . MANY PEOPLE FORGET THAT AFTER " THE GOSPEL HAS BEEN PREACHED TO ALL THE WORLD " THAT THEN COMES THE TIME FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE . ST.PAUL POINTS THIS OUT IN ROMANS 11:15 + . WE NEED TO EVANGELIZE EVERY SOUL GOD DESIRES US TO 'TOUCH' UNTIL JESUS, OUR KING, RETURNS .

Jason Hoggatt, you need Biblical systematic theology. The Bible describes the wilderness as "long time" though it was only 40 years. Go to a Bible-teaching church every Sunday and enroll in a Bible class. Get a Study Bible instead of chanting unrelated things.

Grace Kim Kwon both Jesus and the Holy Bible are inerrant ? You have been listening to "the commandments of men" and drinking the "kool-aid" of the great T.V. evangelists. No modern Bible is inerrant when you read it with your carnal mind, which is apparent in the fact that you do not have, or understand, the LOVE OF GOD.Sure God wills that all men repent, He said so in His word. But He also said that ALL MEN would be saved, He repeated it every time that His Son is called the " Savior of THE WORLD" Every person, starting with Adam , going right down to the last person born before He comes back, was and will be responsible for His crucifixion where He pleaded for His Father to "forgive them, for they know not what they do" He was not pleading for those there who actually participated in His death, only, but for ALL MANKIND.Which God has already forgiven, sure each individual must repent, either in this life, or if that is not possible, that is what the day of judgement is for. The day when EVERY KNEE WILL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS. We all owe God for the sins we have committed and at that time,THE DAY THAT HIS JUDGMENT IS IN THE EARTH, He will collect what is owed from each and every one of us. There will be, for each of us, a punishment to fit the crime. Not what the world teaches, such as being thrown into "man's fabled hell of eternal torment and damnation",but what God deems a fair exchange. That is what "an eye for an eye" means,a small mistake a small fine, a large mistake a larger fine and so on, as Christ said you will be turned over to the jailer and held until you have paid the last farthing, not a moment longer, an eye for an eye. God's law is a law of learning the punishment is to teach you how to conduct your self, and how to live with your neighbor, no punishment went on forever, if it did how would you be able to learn from it and reform. When we reach that place in our walk with Christ where we truly understand what it means to be like Christ, we let go the carnal things that trap us in the mental attitude that modern Christianity has, the See I told you so, that they hope to throw at all the ones they believe will be tossed into the lake of fire, that they think represents what the world calls hell, they can not believe that God has the power to save ALL MANKIND, like He says and deny them the pleasure of watching the ones they HATE, in eternal torment. The Bible says GOD IS LOVE Man thinks that this same God will have more than 2/3rds of His own creation burn forever in this so called lake of fire. Get over yourself, Ask god's Spirit to show you how to gain that mind which is in Christ, and read His word with that mind and more will be revealed to you. In God's Love Ken.

Daniel was told to seal up his prophecy b/c it was "a long time off," which turned out to be well under one thousand years, but from Mathew to Revelation, Jesus and His spokesmen use phrases like "near, at hand, about to be, upon us, soon, quickly, the last day(s), the last hour," et cetera.

Jesus came to the Earth as He had promised after about 4,000 years from the Fall and the first prophecy. He had been anticipated throughout the time and it had been told of His coming for the next 3,600 years. Drastic things happened meanwhile including the wiping of the planetary surface by a flood and a birth and presence of the nation Israel and the covenants with Noah, Abraham and David. It's quite easy to see Jesus could come again after 2,000 years from His first Advent, with His Gospel covering the planetary surface, the Holocaust and the rebirth of the nation Israel. We just must be ready for Him for all time like Noah and his family were!

Both Jesus and the Holy Bible are inerrant. He is waiting for you to repent but He may return when you are still in your own arrogance. Repent while being alive.
