Look upon them with knowing that your preterism has deceived you
The Lord always leaves His timing with regard to His next intervention un-revealed .... no one knows the dating .... and certainly not the preterists who are obviously wrong about a past occurrence
Many attempt to set datings for the event and all fail .... and so does preterism fail the testing
Preteristic thinking about this particular issue has gutted the scriptures of any future hope for you
At hand, soon, or near is the Lord's assurance that He will intervene without revealing the time [He is totally consistent with all scripture on this matter] .... and "soon" to Him means something very different .... He has no limitations related to time valuation as do humans .... this life is like a vapor just waiting to pass
The preteristic view is very shallow and earthly oriented crow
And you should be respectful of His willingness to tarry .... you think about this
The story you have been sold does just not match up related scripture with scripture
How many more humans have had the opportunity to be saved, including yourself? .... and believe He already has the number in mind
And I must add that is see much disdain, anger, and defensiveness in your words
