OST is closed for business but its spirit survives on my blog.
Sure. I fully understand your position. My teacher of Biblical eschatology (Sam Storms) would probably fully agree with you. I respect him more than most. I understand people who see things this way, I’m just not one of them. I cannot in good conscience accept the preteristic interpretations. For me there is two main problems with the postion that Israel is completely irrelivant and ultimately coincedental, but not part of God’s plan in any way. The first is the perspective of too many throughout Church history, and the second is the pesky verses that speak of something future that never happened by any stretch historically. The invasion of Ezekiel 38 is a good example.
