  1. Hi Adam…curious about your thoughts on communion and 1 Corinthians 11:26 specifically…When I was taking communion this morning and praying while doing it I found myself saying “…until You come Lord” and then thought “….why am I saying that if He already came? “For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lords death ‘until’ He comes”…hmmmm? Val Roman

    • Hi Val. I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for the good question. I’ve had to think through this as well. My short answer is that a comparison of other texts about the Lord’s supper (communion) indicates that this practice wasn’t intended to cease at the time of Jesus’ return. Instead we see that Jesus promised to eat this supper again with His followers once His kingdom was established (Matthew 26:29, Mark 14:25, and Luke 22:16-18). During the time between His death and His coming in His kingdom, His followers were to observe this practice in His memory. Ever since He came in His kingdom, then, God’s people can continue this practice as a celebration of His kingdom’s arrival and presence. What do you think of this explanation?

  2. Thank you! Yes, all is well. The answer is great and leads me to another question…What does ‘His kingdom’s arrival and presence’ look like to you…Did you say that you are Full Preterist now? Thanks, Adam 🙂

    • Val, I’m glad to hear that all is well. Yes, depending on how someone defines full preterism, you could say I’m a full preterist now, Those are good questions about the arrival and presence of God’s kingdom. There are a lot of depths to God’s kingdom, and I’m sure my response here won’t be complete.

      I see that the arrival of God’s kingdom was to go hand in hand with Christ’s judgment upon faithless Israel, and the demise of the temple and the meaningless sacrifices and offerings still being practiced there. In Matthew 16:27-28 Jesus said He would come in judgment and in His kingdom (while some of His disciples were still alive). So the arrival of His kingdom would come at the same time He would carry out this judgment. Likewise, in Hebrews 12, God said He was about to shake the earth and heaven, and remove all that could be shaken. The believers were to be thankful that they were receiving a kingdom that couldn’t be shaken (Heb. 12:26-28). Also Matthew 24:30, by alluding back to Daniel 7:13-14, indicates that Jesus’ coming in judgment and in great power and glory would be a verification that He had ascended to the Father and received “dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him.”

      We also see in the Parable of the Weeds (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43) that God’s angels would be used at the end of the age to first “gather out of His kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers” (13:33, 41-42) and then gather the righteous in His kingdom that they might shine like the sun (13:30, 43; cf. Daniel 12:3). Similarly, Jesus said He would take the kingdom away from the Jewish religious leaders and give it to a people who would bear its fruit (Matthew 21:43).

      The presence of God’s kingdom is everything that Jesus and the apostles said about the kingdom being manifest among God’s people here on earth. That would include “righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17). It would include growth in terms of more and more people coming into the community of the kingdom, as Jesus described in various parables. It’s evidenced by devils being cast out of people, and people being healed (Matthew 12:28; Luke 9:2, 11; Luke 10:9). It’s characterized by humility and the demeanor of children (Luke 18:16-17). And it’s marked by power (I Corinthians 4:20).

  3. What a very researched site! I’ve come to see Revelation’s plagues as the fulfilment of the curses at the end of Deuteronomy through so much reading material that is here. I wonder if you wouldn’t consider a Bible Study on I Peter 4:17. (I see your other article on I Peter 2:9-10)
    “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” I Peter 4:17
    I find it interesting that Peter is mindful that judgment “must begin at the house of God”, as though he knows that judgment is coming on the land of Judah just as promised. But this would also imply another judgment. Perhaps the judgment that Peter speaks of in II Peter 3:3-7 upon the whole earth. I’ve gone through the website over a period of weeks and months, and I don’t notice a bible study on these verses.

    • Thank you, Bradley. I appreciate your kind words. I agree with you that Revelation’s plagues are the fulfillment of the curses at the end of Deuteronomy. I plan to explore that point more fully down the road.

      Thanks for the study suggestion (I Peter 4:17). I’ll try to keep that in mind and prepare something before too long. It is an interesting verse.
