Dan.12:7 - The time of the end was defined by "the scattering of the power of the holy people". The breaking of the power of the Jews. The only power the Jews had was their special covenantal relationship with God via their temple. That power was broken in 70 A.D. when the Temple was destroyed. Conclusion: The time of the end was in 70 A.D. It was a covenantal end, not a cosmic one. This is in perfect harmony with the Lord's Olivet Discourse, which sentered on the Temple's destruction. Jesus and the disciples obviously equated the Temple's destruction with the Lord's coming and the end of the age! That's why they question of when all those things would happen and that's why the answer that all would be fulfilled before "this generation" had passed. Foolks, this is basic stuff. Yet, Baptists have bought a bill of goods called Scofieldism, or dispensationalism. It's wrong to the core. Nothing it teaches is true, unlike other ultimately false views, such as amillennialism. Preterism is the only view that is consistent with the New Testament time statements, which futurists have to necessarily allegorize to scoot the imminencyu dilemma they have.
