  I agree. As I said, the events of 66-70 AD were the "days of vengeance" Jesus pronounced against that generation of Jews, making them answer for all the murders of the righteous up til that time. It was the Jewish leadership of the Jerusalem area, & its surrounding villages who openly rejected Jesus & had murdered many who had believed Him or had actually tried to live as God had commanded earlier. That's why the Jews in other areas weren't affected too much by the Roman attack.

  The expulsion of the Jews from their land by the Romans under Hadrian in 135-136 AD was actually a much-greater punishment on the Jews than the 66-70 events. Not only were many killed, but the survivors were despised & persecuted wherever they went. Christians blamed them for murdering Jesus; many other peolles hated them for bringing the wrath of the Romans upon them, & others didn't want new peopletaking up their land or using their resources. This persecution lasted for over 1800 years, & was doubtlessly their punishment for their rejection & murder of Jesus. No matter what preterists may say, the history of this persecution is plain, & it culminated in the nazi holocaust. And even today, anti-Semitism still exists outside the Moslem world, as well as within it. It's only by the power of God that the Jewish people still exist at all, let alone having a strong & growing little nation !

  The preterists are constantly making up excuses for the existence of modern Israel, from saying it's just coincidence, to saying its people aren't really Jews.  I just simply BELIEVE THE BIBLE, where it says in several places that GOD will restore both Israel & Judah.

 (Now, about the rest of Israel, remember God told Jacob to say that the rulership is Judah's, but the BIRTHRIGHT IS JOSEPH'S. That birthright includes great national wealth & power. And instead of one tribe of Joseph, it's divided into Ephraim & Manasseh And Jacob eas told by God that "a nation, & a company of nations shall come from you". So, what nation & company of nations at one time controlled some 80 % of all the earth's resources. THE USA & THE BRITISH EMPIRE ! Something to think about, Sportzz Fanzz !)

  I believe the seals, trumpets, & bowls of plagues are all part of the great trib, & will be loosed upon the world very soon after the antichrist commits the AOD & implements the mark of the beast. No matter what prets say, those prophesied events have simply not happened yet, & there are no events that can be subbed for them. And all Biblical prophecy has been, or will be, fulfilled EXACTLY, TO THE LETTER, as God does not lie in the slightest.

  And partial preterism is proven wrong by the words of Jesus Himself, as He said He'd return IMMEDIATELY AFTER the great trib. And Paul wrote He wouldn't return til after the man of sin had come. So, if those events have already occurred, Jesus is long-overdue !

  Fact is - preterism is man-made & false !

A standing temple was there in Revelation 11.  That's why you fools can't reconcile in the internal evidence in Revelation being written well before #2 temple was destroyed.
 Before AD70.

I missed this, and will reply, since it was directed at me.

The Book of Revelation was penned by Apostle John while in prison on the Isle of Patmos in the reign of the Roman emperor Domitian, which was around 96 A.D. The idea that it was written before 70 A.D. is a Preterist myth, a false attempt to change history in order to support a false doctrine of men.

Rev.21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,


John was in the spirit. That's why you can't understand the prophecy.

But that is specifically why... those of us with The Holy Spirit can... understand what Revelation is revealing. Only those who don't have The Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus will be confused in it.

The temple shown in Rev.11:1-2 involves the time period of the latter half of the "one week" of Daniel 9:27. That is what the 42 months the Gentiles are given to tread the holy city is about, which also is the same 42 months of Rev.13 that the "dragon" is given power over ALL nations. And in that same Rev.11 chapter, when it is speaking of God's two witnesses, who are children of the day, the same time is given as 1260 days. This is very simple to understand directly from the Scriptures of God's Word without any doctrines of men touching it.

Even with the description in Rev.11:1, when John is told go measure that temple, using a reed that is as a rod, that in itself is a type of idea that appears in Ezekiel regarding those who went astray being told to go measure the temple of Ezekiel, which will be Christ's future Millennial temple He will build per Zech.6...

Ezek 43:10
10 Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.
KJV


Thus Christ in Rev.11:1-2 is showing that specific temple there is for the last days during the coming tribulation, the latter half 1260 days, which is why He connected the idea of measuring it with the 42 months reign of the "dragon" by the Gentiles treading the holy city. Those are definite endtime markers.
