Alexander's goal is to challenge readers to search the Scriptures for themselves. His articles are his legacy for all who care to read his deliberations on the Scriptures. In his articles on the ‘end times’, he compares his view (Preterism) with Dispensationalism on numerous occasions. The reason for doing so, is from personal experience and knowledge of that doctrine. In his opinion, the teaching has a detrimental effect on Christianity. Only 'Dispensationalism' is used in his Hubs not 'Dispensationalist', because his criticism is directed at the doctrine and not his brothers in Christ. He also has a keen interest in Art History and endeavours to combine the two subjects in his articles.

Are you aware the Battle of Armageddon doesn't appear in the Bible? It is incumbent on Christians to study the Scriptures for themselves, this is one of numerous assumptions that go unchallenged.

This is another excellent article. I have written about this subject and came to the same conclusion. Your presentation is a pleasure to read and follow.

This is an excellent article, not only in content and presentation, but in depth of understanding. I too have written on this subject and drawn the same conclusion, but to a much lesser degree.

WARNING. The ‘heresy’ of the truth.

This is a stern warning to all Pastors, Preachers and teachers in 2015. Whatever you do don’t preach the truth of Holy Scripture, unless you wish to be scorned by Christian contemporaries and friends ...and finally labelled as a heretic. 
I will try to explain the pitfalls that you should avoid in order to fall in with all the other Christian Sheep on earth. There is one question alone, which if you answer correctly, you will join the ranks of the so called ‘Heretics’

WHEN AND TO WHOM DID JESUS PROMISE TO COME ?

The question “WHEN”? is of paramount importance . All New Testament eschatology is based on Jesus’ teachings about his coming. And Jesus’ teachings are based upon earlier teachings in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament). Jesus taught that he would come to his first generation of believers, both explicitly in direct statements, and implicitly in parables and other typological fulfilments of Hebrew Scriptures.

1. Truly I tell YOU, some of YOU who are standing here will not taste death before THEY see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom. (Matthew 16:28, cf. Mark 9:1, Luke 9:27,

2. When they persecute YOU in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to YOU, YOU will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes. (Matthew 10:23)

3. So also, when YOU see all these things [seven signs], YOU know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, truly, I say to YOU, THIS GENERATION will not pass away until all these things take place. (Matthew 24:33–34)

4. THESE are days of vengeance, to fulfill all that is written…when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise YOUR heads, because YOUR redemption is near…when YOU see these things taking place, YOU know that the Kingdom of God is near. (Luke 21:22, 28 31)
Therefore I say to YOU the Kingdom of God will be taken away from YOU, and be given to a nation producing the fruit of it.’ …When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they understood that he was speaking about THEM. (Matthew 21:40-41,43,45)
From now on, you [Caiaphas, the chief priests, the scribes, the elders, the whole Sanhedrin] shall be seeing the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven. (Matthew 26:64; Mark 14:62; Luke 22:69)

5. If I want him [John] to remain until I come, what is that to you? (John 21:22)

6. For yet in a very little while, he who is coming will come, and will not delay. (Hebrews 10:37, circa 60s AD)

So when did Jesus say he would come?

Within the lifetime of his first believers. Jesus taught he would come to his, then-living, generation of followers to fulfill the Hebrew Scriptures, end the Old Covenant age, fulfill the Kingdom of God and dwell with them forever, (but not on this earth).

There are Christians, true Berean believers, who believe that Jesus loved His followers and never lied to them about the terrible tribulations they were about to endure, in fact that was the entire purpose of His Revelation... Read the very first lines and imagine what Jesus’ followers in the First Century must have thought ? REV 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants-things which must SHORTLY take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John,1:3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the TIME IS NEAR.
