Preterism – I am not a Preterist



How do you explain Matthew 16:28?






“Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they SEE the Son of Man coming in His kingdom” (Matthew 16:28, NASB)


They could have been taken like Elijah and Enoch till they see Him in His Kingdom.



Or this Biblical FACT:



Also, Apostle John SAW the Son of Man Coming in His Kingdom (Revelation 19:11 – 16) in the Visions given (as it is recorded in the Book of Revelation) and probably so did others who were present there (in Matthew 16:28) too likewise (but it was not recorded) ‘before they died’.


I believe in Matthew 16:28 too.


This Biblical Fact is evident as God has Revealed to His NEW TESTAMENT saints to SEE His Kingdom and know His Mystery as it is mentioned in Verse below which Perfectly answers Matthew 16:28 Beautifully:


“that is, the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints,” (Colossians 1:26, NASB)




For example, apostle Paul testifies of a man (be it himself or another) who had such “Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven experience” agreeing to all this in Verses below too:


“Boasting is necessary, though it is not profitable; but I will go on to visions and revelations of the Lord.


I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a man was caught up to the third heaven.


And I know how such a man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows— was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak.” – apostle Paul (2 Corinthians 12:1 – 4, NASB)




“So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?”


Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!”


Therefore this saying went out among the brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?”

This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.” – apostle John (John 21:21 – 24)
