Sermon! Rev 1 I would have to lean to the Preterist view. The message was given to the people of that day, and what was going to happen was to happen shortly, quickly. and so went out to the seven churches that were contemporaries of John.Throughout the new testament talk of them being in the last days(Of the Jewish covenant system,judgement,destruction of Jerusalem was clearly taught. Jesus said to his disciples that they would not finish going to all the cities of Israel before seeing him coming in his kingdom. Jesus coming in Judgement was no different than when God came in Judgement many times in the old testament.Much more could be said and explained so check out more on Preterism and you will be surprised.The bereans checked to see if what Paul was saying was true and so should should we.If you take an honest look at Preterism and scripture interpeting scripture your faith will be deepened.Thanks and God bless you as we grow in grace and Knowlege.

Good Systematic Presentation Dr.Fernandes' point by point, exegetical analysis is sharp, evoking deep reflection of God's Word. This pastor is well versed in the scriptures and is obviously a highly educated theologian. I have listened to many uninspiring pastors who come across to me as superficial with little to offer intellectually and spiritually. This teacher has not disappointed me. I am looking forward to listening to his remaining sermons on Revelation.
College-level material! This is solid classroom teaching.
