I have had a chance to go over and read some of the other discussions you've had in the past, and I still cannot pin down what you are saying.
You seem to me to be 'saying it both ways' as the saying goes. But we'll let you explain it.
For instance, you posted yesterday...
"To be more exact, I hold Mt 24:4-35 to be the answer to the 1st question and Mt 24:36ff to be Jesus' answer to the second question."
So I have to ask, what is it that you believe the first question is?
I read, starting at Mt. 24:2-3, the disciples FIRST asked "‘Tell us, when will this be," and they asked this right after Jesus said "Truly I tell you, not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.’"
It's fairly clear to me that the FIRST question was in relation to the shocking news that they just received, that their beloved Temple was going to be sacked.
The SECOND question would then be obvious and expected. These very Jewish men were expecting "the kingdom to be restored" right then. SO, their question took the shape of, if not now, then when.
Hence we read the SECOND question, "and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
So, if I were to put that in plain English, in a rather unabridged form, it would appear like this.
"Lord, tell us, when is the Temple to be destroyed and since it's to be destroyed, contrary to what we would expect, then Lord what sign shall we have to indicate your coming at the end of the age."
Question (1) When will the Temple get destroyed.
Question (2) When will the Lord return at the end of the age, or as the KJ uses "at the end of the world"?
If I understand the questions as do you, then you apply the below statement by Jesus to the first century.
27 "the coming of the Son of Man. "
29 "the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken."
30 "Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 "And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
Correct me if I missed something.
You then insist as having taken place in the first century, (1) the second coming of our Lord Jesus, with all of the associated fanfare, the grand celestial events to announce His arrival, all the tribes of the Earth grieving and all eyes seeing Him come on the clouds with great power and glory. You also attribute (2) judgement day to the first century, the angels gathering the elect from every extremity of the Earth.
That would be preterism.
I will say this, if Jesus already came, judged the Earth and left, then we are all in trouble. And wasting our time.
