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?

Jesus Placed the Temple Desecration in the Future
How do we know Daniel’s prophecy did not already happen in history? How can we be sure that there’s a lengthy gap between the sixty-ninth and seventieth week?
Almost four centuries after the time of Daniel, Antiochus Epiphanes came to power in BC 170. He later desecrated the second Jewish temple by setting up idols in it and by offering pigs on its altar.
Although the actions of Antiochus Epiphanes may have foreshadowed what the prophet wrote about, it was not it. We know this because Jesus, in Matthew 24:15, referred to the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 as a still future event:
“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand)…”
About two hundred years after the time of Antiochus Epiphanes, Jesus said that the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 would happen in the future. He also predicted that it would lead to severe persecution of the Jewish people during a time of “great tribulation” on the earth (Matthew 24:16-21).
Roughly forty years after Jesus spoke those words, a Roman general named Titus destroyed the second Jewish Temple along with much of Jerusalem. This set off a persecution of the Jewish populace that resulted in the deaths of a great many.
Did Titus fulfill Daniel’s prophecy regarding the “abomination of desolation?” No, he did not. We know this because of a key detail that the Apostle Paul adds to the prophetic fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 and Matthew 24:15.
Jesus Himself Will Destroy the Desolator at His Second Coming
In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul identifies the one who will desecrate the temple as the “man of lawlessness,” or the one we refer to today as the “antichrist.”
“Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
