O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

I have heard it before, so ill ask this to you all.

Is the elect of God only the remnant of the 12 tribes that God chose from Adam to the second advent of the coming of our Lord?

I know that men such Don Preston and others with a Arminian backround hold to the elect were only those chosen by God from that time frame.

Does anyone have biblical evidence to suggest that Gods elect are all of Gods chosen forever and not just between those time periods?

As one who holds to the five points of Calvinism, well, I was wondering how to respond to that kind of argument? I realize that some in here are Calvinistic

Full preterism made me jettison most of my Reformed beliefs. Understanding the narrative of Scripture through a Covenant Context instead of a universal context just undercuts the Calvin's TULIP, IMO. 

David Curtis is the best "Reformed" full preterist out there that I know of who tries to make it fit.

Alan Bondar is also a good resource although I think he would probably be closer to where I am now. If you want a good discussion on the incompatibility or compatibility of different doctrines he would be the one to talk to. 

I wrote a comment somewhere, going through the TULIP of Calvinism and showing how my understanding of preterism changes how I see each of those doctrines but I can't find it. Sorry.
