O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
the person(s) who removed my post below..IF you truly believe you are right with your 'preterist' view on scripture, why would my belief in scripture revealed to me by the Holy Spirit, scare or enrage you to the point of deleting it? (The adversary mocked Yeshua as well).. :(
My heart is very sad for all of you 'preterist'. I know what you are holding onto is so wrong. It is false doctrine and we are warned in scripture to not be divided as well. Remember what Paul taught the Corinthians?
1 Corinthians 1:10 Nevertheless, brothers, I call on you in the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah to agree, all of you, in what you say, and not to let yourselves remain split into factions but be restored to having a common mind and a common purpose. 11 For some of Chloe’s people have made it known to me, my brothers, that there are quarrels among you. 12 I say this because one of you says, “I follow Sha’ul”; another says, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Kefa”; while still another says, “I follow the Messiah!”
I'm not ignorant, people! I love so deeply now because of what Yeshua did for me. It hurts me deeply when I find people who claim to know Him, but in their deeds, actions, and doctrine they are deceived by the adversary. I am aware because I'm not 'college' educated..and not even a high school graduate, some of you think I cannot grasp about your belief in this label of preterism. I get it. I know, in my heart, it is a false teaching and the Lord rules my heart. It's a brand new heart. It loves all, it forgives all, and it wants all to come to the knowledge of the Truth. This cult or sect you have divided yourselves into is going to bring the wrath down on your heads if you don't wake up. Yeshua did not come to have everyone to just make up his own doctrine and it is alright with the Father..the Way, the Truth, and the Life is in Yeshua. There is no way on God's green earth would He approve of what you have 'decided' the scripture is teaching. When I first started reading the scripture from Genesis to Revelation..I seriously didn't understand anything I was reading. But, I prayed asking for wisdom, discernment, knowledge and revelation to what the passages meant that I couldn't comprehend..do you know that God would open my eyes and heart every single time I read the scriptures after that. I even started copying the scriptures into notebooks by topic..It so helped me to understand the Word. If there was a passage that didn't make sense to me, I would pray about it and then reread the whole passage again..and it would become clear ..God is good! The scriptures even attest to the fact that some of emissaries writings were hard to understand..but with prayer and giving your whole body, mind and spirit to the Lord, He will give you wisdom to understand.
1 Corinthians 1: 18 For the message about the execution-stake is nonsense to those in the process of being destroyed, but to us in the process of being saved it is the power of God. 19 Indeed, the Tanakh says,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise
and frustrate the intelligence of the intelligent.”
20 Where does that leave the philosopher, the Torah-teacher, or any of today’s thinkers? Hasn’t God made this world’s wisdom look pretty foolish? 21 For God’s wisdom ordained that the world, using its own wisdom, would not come to know him. Therefore God decided to use the “nonsense” of what we proclaim as his means of saving those who come to trust in it. 22 Precisely because Jews ask for signs and Greeks try to find wisdom, 23 we go on proclaiming a Messiah executed on a stake as a criminal! To Jews this is an obstacle, and to Greeks it is nonsense; 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, this same Messiah is God’s power and God’s wisdom! 25 For God’s “nonsense” is wiser than humanity’s “wisdom.”
I pray all of you please reconsider your belief in all of the prophesies are fulfilled and know that if you just trust in Yeshua and ask Him to help you just believe and trust in Him and His sacrifice on the cross..You will be saved..
God bless you all with peace.

I deleted your post. Trust me it wasn't fear :)
When you signed up to the site you wrote " I need a place to ask questions and receive answers" Not exactly honest, were you?
As a member here, you're a quest and you might want to remember that.
All you've done is post condescending, rude and demeaning rants.
You've ignored and dodged questions that Les. Patricia and MTodd have asked you...you just respond by
" Patricia; IF you or any of the other's have any FEAR of God..you would NOT continue in this perversion of God's word"
"Les,You and the others here that are Preterists..seriously have NO hope
"What you are practicing here is straight from the devil."
Have you taken the time to read one of the many articles that are posted here, some by people who have written books and have spent years studying?
Maybe take the time to understand what we believe and then confront them theologically.
I know it's useless to ask you anything, because you're lead by the "Holy Spirit" even with your eight grade education you have "all knowledge"
Your pomposity is only overshadowed by your self righteousness.
You have your forum "For the Preterist" and you can interact there, I won't let you spam the site with your daily rants and condemnation of us.
Legitimate questions are welcome on any article. If you post again, it needs to be without your pompous assertion that we're all without hope, lost and deceived... Stick with the facts,not your opinion and you might learn something.
