Matthew 16:27-28 - Don Preston Review #35

27 For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.  -  Matthew 16:27-28

Note: Don Preston is a full preterist and therefore his teaching cannot receive full or blind acceptance. His many videos on YouTube are worthy of listening and interacting with in a timeline manner.

@1:25: This portion of Isiah is a very important verse. Surprisingly, I can never remember the address when I want to quote/read it. Kinda frustrating. I didn't really know where Mr Preston was going with this but this is good stuff. The idea of "literalism" is pretty loose but this little effort does well to show the ways in which people move swiftly between a wooden literalism and a more typical symbolism.

@3:05: This is the more important passage. If it can be accepted that two passages sharing a context speak of the same event then this gives us dating for Isaiah 19. However, I'm not foolish enough to think that just because two chapters are beside each other they must be speaking of the same event. But I've yet to read/hear a thoughtful futurist response that can demonstrate that these are separate events without doubling down on the descriptive language of God's visitation.
