Lloyd Dale and John Anderson dive into The Abyss. The Abyss, sometimes translated as the Bottomless Pit is essential to understanding approximately one-fourth of the book of Revelation, and noone seems to understand it — but now you can!
Dr. Brant Pitre discusses his book “Jesus the Tribulation & the End of the Exile:
Restoration Eschatology.” Whatever happened to the scattered 10 northern tribes of the House of Israel taken captive into the Assyrian Exile? If you think they were the Jews in the land in the 1st century, you are mistaken! All 12 tribes would have had to be gathered in order for God’s promises to be fulfilled through Messiah. Here’s the answer!
The “Full Preterist” tells us the thousands years really = 40 years (30-70AD). The “Partial Preterist” tells us the thousand years is in our future at some “final” second coming of Christ. All the “Futurists” (pre-millennialists, a-millennialists, etc.) tells us the thousand years is in our future at the second coming of Christ.
WE DON’T THINK SO! And those Myths are fully busted in Book 1, The Last Days Edition. Full and Partial Preterism are wrong, and all forms of Futurism (i.e. Christ’s second coming – better translated “presence or arrival on His heavenly throne” from Greek word parousia – is still in our future,) are wrong. So, what does the Bible say?
In this 3 hour segment (about 2 hours if you skip commercials) John and Lloyd refute the myth of the alleged 40 year “millennium” paradigm used by Full Preterism. One thing that may be helpful is to realize Full Preterism does not see the distinction between “victory over death” (at the cross or before the thousand years) and “destruction of death” (after the thousand years). “DESTRUCTION of death” (1Co 15:26; Rev 20:14) is still in our future.
Some teachers with “Partial Preterist” views are Gary DeMar, Hank Hanegraaff (The Bible Answer Man of The Christian Research Institute), Dr. R.C. Sproul, Dr. Kenneth Gentry. Can a Partial Preterist view be justified with the Bible? Is it a confusing situation (i.e. is there a fine line that states it could go that way)? The answer is NO to both of those questions.
