Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The Apostle Paul is very clear in his message to his Roman audience that the atoning work of Christ will crush Satan soon and under their feet. There is no way to suggest Paul means a future generation or a long time off is when Christ will crush Satan. Obviously Paul was a full Preterist and he not present day bible teachers was the inspired one of the Holy Spirit. His inspiration by the Holy Spirit makes his assertion indisputable, immutable, and inerrant. If Paul were to be wrong on this point that would mean the bible is not inerrant and then everything we believe as Christians could be honestly disputed. The only way to maintain the inerrancy of the bible and its divine inspiration is to accept the words of Paul and accept Christ came back soon as in the lives of his first century audience as Paul is saying here. And then we have plenty of related verses: Matthew 16:28 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 10:23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes. 1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. Matthew 26:63-64 But Jesus remained silent. And the high priest said to him, "I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." 64Jesus said to him, "You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven." Matthew 24:34 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Christ saying 7 different times in the book of Revelation that he is coming soon. And there are other verses still. When you see the power, immediacy, and authority of these verses there is no honest way to read them and not realize that Christ promised a first century return in the lives of first century believers. It was simply a different type of return than what is most often expected. It was a return in 70 AD in judgment against Jerusalem and marked the time that all things prophesied are fulfilled.
