    Many people's personalities run to enjoyment of riddles. Therefore they take the symbolic and difficult passages of Scripture and build outlandish systems of prophetic babble that contradict plain statements of Scripture. Over the years I organized some plain statements, explicit statements, from God's word to keep myself between the guard rails.

    Promise to Israel about the promised land was fulfilled in the OT:
    Josh.21:43-45; 23:14-16; Neh. 9:22-25;
    1 Kgs 4:20,21 along with Gn. 15:18; 2 Chron. 9:26

    Jewish theocracy has been ended:
    Matt. 21:43; Luke 20:16; John 4:21, 23

    God's people are now One People, NOT two peoples:
    Eph. 2:16; Col. 3:11; 1 Cor. 12:13; Gal. 3:7-9; Phil. 3:3; Rom. 2:28,29; 10:12,13

    The Church is now spiritual Israel, the true Israel:
    1 Pet. 2:9, 10 see Ex. 19:6; Dt. 7:6; Isa. 61:6; Gal. 6:15, 16; Heb. 12:18, 22-24

    The kingdom is now, has been since the 1st century:
    Matt. 12:28; 16:28; Luke 11:20; 17: 20,21; Col. 1:13; Matt. 4:17/Mark 1:15

    Christ is King now:
    Acts 2:29-35; Matt. 2:2; John 1:49; 12:14-16; Luke 1:32,33; 1 Tim.6:15; Rev. 1:5

    Christ reigns now:
    Matt 28:18; Eph. 1:20,21; Phil. 2:9,10; Heb. 2:8; 1 Pet. 3:22

    Christians are new creation and reign now:
    Rom. 5:17; 8:17; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 2:6

    Satan is bound now:
    Matt. 12:28,29; John 12:27, 31; 16:11; Luke 10:17, 18; Col. 2:14, 15; 1 John 3:8; Heb. 2:14

    1000 years are symbolic as the OT symbols:
    Psa. 50:10; 91:7; 105:8; Isa. 30:17; 60:22

    One general resurrection of two peoples, lost and saved on THE LAST DAY:
    Dan. 12:1, 2; Acts 24:15; 17:31,32; John 5:28,29; 6:39,40,44, 54; 11:24;

    One general judgment of people on THE LAST DAY:
    John 12:48 with 6:39; 2 Pet. 2:9; 3:7; 1 John 4:17; Rev. 20:12-15

    The time of the second coming to judgment on the world is unknown:
    Matt. 24:36, 44; Acts 1:7; 1 Thess. 5:1, 2; Rev. 16:15,16

    Timing of Daniel's 490 years, the Mt. Olivet Discourse, & Revelation match:
    Dan. 9:24 - the 70 weeks have no hint of a gap anywhere, so that is ridiculous and the 490 years terminate in the 1st century
    Mat. 24:14 is already fulfilled in Col. 1:23, and 24:34 is specifiic which came to pass in 70AD
    Rev. 1:1, 3; 22:6 , 10 all point to a fulfillment soon after the the composition, probably 65-68AD. The temple in Rev. 11:1,2 is still standing and nowhere in Scripture is there a hint of its already being destroyed.
