I though this would be a good topic for its own thread, not buried in another one: What about Christ's prophecy to His disciple before the Transfiguration? He said that some here would not see death until they see the Kingdom coming in power, Christ coming into His kingdom? When did this happen? "And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power." Mark 9:1 I wrote this earlier: But perhaps the biggest factor that turned me away from this theology was that it just had no answer for Christ's many promises to come to His own "soon", or "quickly". And that He told them at the time of the Transfiguration that some of them would still be alive when He came into His kingdom.
