Woodrow Kroll: Preterism – Is Revelation Fulfilled? (2010)

Being a partial preterist is a little bit like being a quasi-Chicago-Cubs fan. Either you’re a Cubby fan or you’re not.

But ordinarily, you would either view Revelation as prophetic or historical and not mix the two. Continue reading “Woodrow Kroll: Preterism – Is Revelation Fulfilled? (2010)”

Dave Hunt: Do Preterists Believe in the Rapture? (2007 Audio)

As a whole, the Book of Revelation is a prophecy of the end of the old order and the establishment of the new order. It is a message to the church that the terrifying convulsions coursing throughout the world in every sphere comprised the final “shaking of heaven and earth,” ending once and for all the Old Covenant system, announcing that the kingdom of God had come to earth and broken Satan’s hold on the nations.
