[With this article, Note to Preterists…, OMGjesus awards all Preterists “The Crazy Horse Award”, with the picture of a crazy horse… for actually believing what this horse obviously thinks is a crazy idea.]
Excerpt from: What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age? (v3)
Preterists teach that Christ already came in 7oAD, that we need not be looking for a Rapture now, nor a Second Coming. What preterists teach — is misleading, but an easily denounced interpretation. See: 2 Thessalonians 2 verses 1-3.
Quite simply: Preterists do what the Apostle Paul said NOT to do. They teach (v2) “…to the effect that the day of the Lord has [already] come” (in 70AD). Well, sorry guys, but that is totally bogus and Paul spoke right out against it! He said,
“Now in regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our [a]gathering together to meet Him, we ask you, [b]brothers and sisters, 2 not to be quickly unsettled or alarmed either by a [so-called prophetic revelation of a] spirit or a message or a letter [alleged to be] from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has [already] come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive or entrap you, for that day will not come unless….” – 2 Thessalonians 2 verses 1-3
Jesus foretells that false teachers would be saying ‘listen to me’, just as Satan tempted Eve saying, “God did not say that, did He?” They will falsely claim to be prophecying some message from God, or something secretly told to them by some spirit, or say here is another letter from the Apostle. They in fact have seen nothing. Unbelievable.
Fake profetic gifts are: (per Ezekiel 13:1-9)
self-inspired, false claims, lying about visions, hoping – not actually hearing from God, “their word” – not God’s, false visions, lying about hidden knowledge given, saying “God says” – when He did not, falsehood.
FOR MORE, see: They in fact have seen nothing.
We need to know the Bible well enough to recognize error when it comes at us in church, via internet or person-to-person! Examine sermons and compare with Scripture. “Every jot and tittle” must agree with God’s whole message in the Bible.

Preterists need to review the evidences. 1
Preterism is a false claim by self-inspired teachers, a total falsehood (as warned about in Ezekiel 13:1-9). A quick read through the New Testament shows we are urged to “look up” and be ready for the imminent return of Christ. I’d sooner heed those – than listen to a half-baked idea which contradicts Jesus. Are you ready to be snatched up by God?
