Today a dominant doctrine is that of Preterism. This doctrine is the dialectic counter to Jewish Supremacism. Preterists hold to the belief that all prophecy was fulfilled by 70 AD. Preterists have it half right. The preterist see’s all prophecy fulfilled by 70 AD but fails to see the similitude that carries forward as the spiritual fulfillment in the “future”. This is a post I made on a forum with a strong preterist following. The Narrow Path
Zec 4:9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
This prophecy talks about how Zerubabbel built Ezras temple but also is a similitude for the second coming as it is also talking about the 2 witness royal priesthood that builds new Jerusalem. The spiritual house built with lively stones.
Same thing is happening here
Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
The preterist wil show this prophecy as fulfilled by detailing the day the hour, the minute that Christ entered Jerusalem on an ass etc but fails to understand the spiritual as it is a prophecy of the holy city new Jerusalem which is the church of new covenant Israel.
Mat_26:61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
This is talking about Jesus physical body but is also prophetic of the future as it is talking about his spiritual body the church. At the end of the second day, the pentecost church age the body or the temple is in ruins. This is what we are living in right now. The church is in complete ruin, not one stone is upon another. But..
Hos 6:1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
Hos 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Hos 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
At the end of the second day, now, God begins reviving us as we see many waking up to the abominations being done in Jesus’ name IE corporate mega mania christiandom. this leads to the third day latter rain outpouring. Tabernacles.
We are at the end of the pentecost indwelling age, the second day. We are transitioning to the third day, the age of tabernacles
Eze 37:27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Eze 37:28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
The age of pentecost has been our earnest of the spirit
Eph_1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
At the Lords return, tabernacles, when Haggai’s prophecy is fulfilled.
Hag 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
When the 2 witness royal priesthood, the 2 sticks, become one.
Zec 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
Zec 6:13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
The manifest sons. Christ’s return when he mainifests in his body, new Jerusalem, the Bride.
Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
Jer 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
The 144000, the manifest sons
Rev 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
Who restore the apostate church
Rom 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
The Branch, the 144000, the manifest sons, the Bride, the deliverer who turn away ungoliness from Jacob, apostate christianity.
Neh_8:1 And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.
Right now the 2 witnesses are on the road to Zion
Jer 50:4 In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.
Jer 50:5 They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.
Jer 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
The Lord is gatherin us one by one
Isa 27:12 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel.
Gathering us together as “one man” the true royal (Zerubabbel) priesthood (Joshua) right before mystery Babylon is destroyed forever.
