When you hear Don Preston go on and on about being found “in Christ”, what he REALLY MEANS is that you are found in the “COLLECTIVE Body” that put on a “new spiritual Body.”


The Covenant Eschatology View of Preterism is another form of New Age Religion

Why does the Covenant Eschatology view of Preterism need a “spiritual Body.” Because they have a “spiritual death.” Why do the Covenant Eschatology adherents need a “spiritual death?” Because they have a “spiritual COLLECTIVE Body” that allegedly died in the beginning when the COLLECTIVE BODY/MAN/ADAM/ISRAEL was banished from the garden in Eden.

This “spiritual separation death from God” for Covenant Eschatology’s “COLLECTIVE Body” must need a “spiritual Body” in the future. They only way that they can see their “COLLECTIVE Body” saved, is if their “COLLECTIVE Body” puts on a “New Body.”

Where does this “New Body” come from? Well, this “New Spiritual Body” for the alleged “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of death” is the very “spiritual Body” of Jesus.

You see, When you hear Don Preston go on and on about being found “in Christ”, what he REALLY MEANS is that you are found in the “COLLECTIVE Body” that put on a “new spiritual Body.”

Don Preston will use all kinds of common Christian phrases and common Christian concepts BUT, he is not being forthright in giving you the deeper teachings of the Covenant Eschatology view of Preterism! There is a blatant dishonesty going on – where he never elaborates on the “40 year dying and rising resurrection event process” that the Covenant Eschatology leaders have as a core doctrine in their belief system.

The Jesus that the Covenant Eschatology view of Preterism has in their belief system is a Jesus that provides a spiritual death, spiritual resurrection, and a “spiritual Body” for the alleged “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of spiritual separation death from God.”

This alleged “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of spiritual separation death from God” allegedly died when this “COLLECTIVE Body” was allegedly “banished from God’s presence on Earth when this COLLECTIVE Body was allegedly removed from the garden that was in Eden.” This is the “spiritual death” that the Covenant Eschatology adherents believe in for their “Collective Body.”

The goal of the Jesus in the Covenant Eschatology belief system was to get God’s presence back on Earth in the “COLLECTIVE Body.” This goal is a “bring-Heaven-to-Earth goal.”

The Jesus of Covenant Eschatology who allegedly died a “spiritual separation death from God” STARTED this alleged “spiritual separation death from God” while he was still physically alive on his cross.

This “dying” was actually a “dying and rising EXCHANGE PROCESS” that lasted for 40 years according to the Covenant Eschatology leaders!

During this 40 years, the “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of death” was going through the “dying and rising exchange process” with the “spiritual Jesus” that Covenant Eschatology has conjured up.

Covenant Eschatology’s Jesus provided the “spiritual Body” that the “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of death” was then-in-process of “putting on” for the 40 years prior to 70 AD. Then, in 70 AD, this “spiritual Body” (that their Jesus provided) becomes fully realized in the “COLLECTIVE Body of believers.”

The “spiritual Body” that their Jesus provided becomes fully enmeshed (one) with the “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of spiritual separation death from God” in 70 AD.

The “enmeshing or joining process” is actually a “40 year dying and rising exchange resurrection event process” that the leaders in Covenant Eschatology have as a core doctrine in their belief system.

So, when you hear Don Preston, William Bell, Larry Siegle, and Daniel Rogers talk about being found “in Christ” and ALL that other wonderful-sounding stuff they seemingly have to say about death, resurrection, and salvation, never forget their “40 year dying and rising exchange resurrection event process” that “joins” their spiritual Jesus with their “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of spiritual separation death from God” (that they conveniently leave out of their teachings.)

When you hear about all that fine-sounding speech that incorporates all manner of common Christian phrases and common Christian concepts that they employ, never forget that there is a “spiritual Body” that was provided by their spiritual Jesus that was “being put on” their “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of spiritual separation death from God” during an alleged “40 year dying and rising exchange resurrection event process” that was then “fully realized” on Earth in 70 AD.

THIS IS WHY the false teachings in the Covenant Eschatology view of Preterism ABSOLUTELY NEED their Jesus to die a “spiritual separation death from God” that then brings forth a “spiritual Body” that can be “put on” their “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of death.”

Who makes up that “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of death – with all the people who are in that Body” that puts on the “spiritual Body” that their Jesus provided? Of course they would say “Israel.”

To them, they see a “law” and “covenant” in the garden that was in Eden that have a way of morphing into how they define “Israel’s law and covenant.” And, to them, it is this “law” that is the problem behind sin. To them, this “law” needs to be removed in order for sin to be removed. To them, where there is no “law”, there is no “sin” and, where there is no “sin”, there is no “death.” And, since they allege that their spiritual Jesus died a “spiritual separation death from God” to take the place of the “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body that also died a spiritual separation death from God”, they say that there is no more “law”, “sin”, or “death” for this “Collective Body” that allegedly “put on” the alleged “spiritual Body” that their spiritual Jesus provided for them as a “COLLECTIVE Body of believers.

Never mind that the Lord Jesus FULFILLED the law that was given to the ethno-religious people Israel when they were created as a people with their specific covenant around 1500 BC (2500 years AFTER the creation of Creation and Adam.)

The false Jesus of the Covenant Eschatology view of Preterism died the “spiritual death” that their “Israel” allegedly died when their “Israel” was banished from God’s presence on Earth by being banished from the garden that was in Eden.

They look at Adam as a “COLLECTIVE Adam/Body/Man/Israel” that was in law and sin and death and, their Jesus died this “COLLECTIVE Adam/Body/Man/Israel’s” “spiritual separation death from God” and, then, this “COLLECTIVE Adam/Body/Man/Israel” put on its “new spiritual Body” that was provided for by their Jesus who took their place in his “spiritual separation death from God.”

To the Covenant Eschatology adherent, their god brought back his presence on Earth to their “Israel” in 70 AD when this “Old Covenant COLLECTIVE Body of spiritual separation death from God” (what Covenant Eschatology says is “Israel” as a COLLECTIVE Body of believers) put on the “new spiritual immortal incorruptible COLLECTIVE Body” that their Jesus provided for their “COLLECTIVE Body of believers.” They say that this “new spiritual Body (provided for by their Jesus) for their COLLECTIVE Body of believers” was fully realized on Earth in 70 AD.

In the Covenant Eschatology view of Preterism belief system, if someone belongs to this “COLLECTIVE Body” that went through a 40 year dying and rising exchange process that ended with this “COLLECTIVE Body” being resurrected in 70 AD and putting on its “new spiritual Body”, they are then described as being “in Christ.”

Don Preston, William Bell, Larry Siegle, and Daniel Rogers would say that they are “in” this “spiritual  Body” that their Jesus provided. This “spiritual Body” that their Jesus provided was allegedly given for the “COLLECTIVE Body of believers” so that this “COLLECTIVE Body of believers” would not have to remain in an alleged “spiritual separation death from God.” In this way, Don Preston, William Bell, Larry Siegle, and Daniel Rogers would say that they are “in Christ.” (note: why do they avoid talking about this “40 year dying and rising exchange resurrection event process” that their COLLECTIVE Body allegedly went through – as it was “putting on” the “spiritual Body” that their Jesus provided for their “spiritual death”???)
