"I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years...
This is the first resurrection." Rev 20:4,5 Logic: The First Resurrection of the Dead happens at his coming, it is the Just who are raised. This first Resurrection includes those who were "beheaded for not taking the mark of the beast" - Therefore there can be no prior Resurrection of the dead happening seven years before or we would call that Resurrection "THE FIRST". The Rapture of the Saints, and of the Dead in Christ who are raised, BOTH groups meet Him in the air, at His coming, is the FIRST, not second. By placing a Resurrection at the beginning of the Tribulation, forces there to be "3" Resurrections of the dead, but the Bible speaks of only two; of the just and unjust.
The Olivet, not having a promise of a Second Coming,(error 1) then forces the context to remain fulfilled in A.D. 70 as the Early Church Father all believed the Olivet was fulfilled in A.D. 70, and the second coming still future. The whole context is based on the idea Jesus saying, "Not one stone will be left upon another - all of the blood spilt of Abel to Zechariah, will be required of this Generation". The Great Tribulation being spoken about is that of Jerusalem ONLY!! The context of Revelation is of Judgment upon the whole world and in no place is Jerusalem judged and destroyed for any sin, since her judgment came upon her in A.D. 70. Preterism forces A.D. 70 to be the fulfillment of both the Olivet and Revelation. Dispensationalism forces the Olivet and Revelation all in the future. The Early Church Fathers all put the Olivet passed, and all of Revelation future.
It is the opening verses of Zechariah 12 and 14 which begins with a narrative of the siege at Jerusalem which was literally fulfilled in A.D. 70, is the last decree of destruction to go against her based on Biblical historical evidence. It is the last declaration made under the Old Testament parameters directly naming her as the recipient of God’s judgment. We find no declaration of judgment against Jerusalem in the Epistles. With the end of the canon of scriptures no other decree from God exists. There are no scriptures found in Revelation that decries Jerusalem destruction for “apostasy”, the common cause of past judgments. The first part of the book deals with judgment on the church, not Israel. Revelation being apocalyptic language, somewhere we should find Old Testament language in conjunction with a decree against Jerusalem. Instead we find reference to her as “the place where our Lord was crucified” (Revelation 11) and “The camp of the saints, the city he loves” (Revelation 20). The focus is that of the beast and his kingdom which we find mentioned in Daniel 7:23 “and this kingdom of the beast is unlike any kingdom on earth and will devour the whole earth”, which defies any association with Israel or Jerusalem, especially of A.D. 70. If we hold to the late date of Revelation authorship the distance between the events of A.D. 70 and Revelation scenario become insurmountable, in fact becomes an impossibility to harmonize of what is to come “soon”.
