For as long as I can remember, I always believed in the Left Behind/New World Order/Antichrist dispensational premillennialism. I was really into the Left Behind books and other readings dealing with the rapture.
Recently, I have started to question the validity of these beliefs. Furthermore, as I have done more reading; I now fully reject dispensationalism. I am a postmillennial preterist. These people are usually called partial preterists (Althought a partial preterist could also be a amillenialist).
Partial Preterists believe that the apocalyptic language of the NT is mostly referring to the fall of Jerusalem and perhaps the Roman Empire. I think this makes a lot of sense contextually, historically, exegetically when we consider the use of that kind of language in other Second Temple writings.
However, as a partial preterist, I believe that the real, physical, future return of Jesus to judge and renew humanity and creation has yet to occur. This separates partial preterists from full preterists who believe that Christs' second coming has already occured.
Is there anyone else who shares these beliefs with me? Also, can anyone recommend so good partial preterists reading? Thanks.
