Realized Eschatology - Homestead

Realized Eschatology The Second Coming of Christ Introduction Advocates of Realized Eschatology teach: The second coming of Christ The resurrection of the dead The day of judgment The end of the world

Occurred in 70 A.D. at the destruction of Jerusalem To look beyond that date is without Biblical authority Introduction It is the second coming, and it is His coming in the fall of Jerusalem, for these are not two separate comings but one Max King (1971)

(SOP, P. 70) The Cross Last Days (Transitional Period) Destruction of Jerusalem Introduction Max King (1971) There is no scriptural basis for extending the second coming of Christ beyond the fall of Judaism (SOP, P. 105)

The Cross Last Days (Transitional Period) Destruction of Jerusalem Introduction Max King (1971) the end of the Jewish world was the second coming of Christ (SOP, P. 81) The Cross

Last Days (Transitional Period) Destruction of Jerusalem Introduction Prophecy found its complete fulfillment in the second coming of Christ, and now may be regarded as closed and consummated Max King (1971) (SOP, P. 65) The Cross

Last Days (Transitional Period) Destruction of Jerusalem Did Jesus Come in the First Century? Jesus did come in some sense in the first century He came in His kingdom

Matthew 16:28 He came with power Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of God present with power. Mark 9:1 Did Jesus Come in the First Century? He came on the day of Pentecost

Acts 1:4-5, 8; 2:1-4, 33 Jesus described the sending of the promised Comforter (the Holy Spirit) I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. John 14:18 Not a bodily coming of Jesus! He came representatively (John 15:26) Did Jesus Come

in the First Century? Jesus taught during that generation (24:34): Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matthew 24:29-30 Jesus did come in judgment in 70 A.D., but it was not His bodily return!

Same Phrase, Different Meanings 70 AD doctrine makes every mention of the coming of the Lord or Day of the Lord mean the same event, regardless of its usage in context Biblical interpretation can have different meanings Same Phrase, Different Meanings Laid hands on them (Acts 4:3) to arrest

Laid hands on them (Acts 13:3) to commend Laid hands on them (Luke 13:13) to heal Laid hands on them (Acts 8:17; 19:6) to impart spiritual gifts We cant arbitrarily assign one meaning to this phrase! Same Phrase, Different Meanings The problem with limiting the coming of the Lord to 70 A.D. is demonstrated by the following passages of scripture:

Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven. Acts 1:9-11 Same Phrase, Different Meanings The apostles actually saw Jesus bodily ascension This IS the manner in which He will return

Jesus did NOT come in bodily form nor was He personally seen in the events of: The coming of the kingdom (Matt 16:28) The destruction of Jerusalem 70 A.D (Matt 24:30) Christs personal, bodily return is yet future! Same Phrase, Different Meanings God created and then destroyed the world with water

By that same word of God the heavens and earth are stored up for fire 70 A.D. advocates try to make the heavens and earth (v.7,10) the Jewish economy Was the world of Noahs day destroyed by water? Todays world will be destroyed by fire Same Phrase, Different Meanings

The abuse of 2 Peter 3:5-11 illustrates the error in Biblical interpretation which is present in this system of error Many seem disposed to regard themselves as at liberty to make anything out of the Bible which their theology may demand or their whims require. And if, at any time, they find a passage that will not harmonize with that view, then the next thing is to find one or more words in the text used elsewhere in a figurative sense, and then demand that such be the Biblical dictionary on the meaning of that word, and hence that it must be the meaning in that place. (Hermeneutics, Dungan, p. 217) Jesus Christ is Coming Again!

To say that those living in the first century were taught that Jesus would return within their lifetime is: Without scriptural proof Contradictory of Biblical passages that say the time of the Lords return could be discerned neither by the times nor by signs Christs coming will be sudden, unexpected, and unannounced

1 Thessalonians 5:2; 2 Peter 3:10 Jesus Christ is Coming Again! The second coming of Christ is yet future Max Kings contention of a spiritual second coming is destroyed by Hebrews 9:28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second

time, apart from sin, for salvation. (Heb 9:28) Was Christ literally offered up to die on the cross? YES Did Christ literally bear the sins of many? YES Since this is so He will literally return a second time! Jesus Christ is Coming Again!

Jesus said He would come again and take believers to be with Him Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. John 14:1-3 This would be heaven according to Psalms 33:13-14 Believers are not yet with Christ in heaven Supporters of the 70 A.D. say that John 14:1-3 only applies to the apostles not you and me

Jesus Christ is Coming Again! Words from the Apostle Paul: Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 2 Timothy 4:8 Words from the Apostle Peter: and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. 1 Peter 5:4

We have not received the crown of righteousness, nor the crown of glory Jesus has NOT yet returned Conclusion The consequences of the 70 A.D. doctrine means that all that are in the graves will never hear the voice of Jesus It means there will not be a future resurrection It means that all who die in the Lord have no hope of seeing the Lord and being with Him Comforting Words from Paul:
