Don't know why the last of the post above is all bolded?
When copy and pasting scripture, sometimes within the text [a], , and [c] are used to denote footnotes. I bet there's a and/or a [/b ] somewhere in what you copied.

I'll bet that's exactly what it is. Look how my text is bolded. I actually put "b" in [] in my text, and it doesn't show up.
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

DB: I agree that Rev 20 indicates that something will happen at the end of the "1000 years" prior to the Final Judgement. We aren't given a whole lot of information. But it could potentially be referring to a still future time of 'tribulation'
And that's where I am - that the aggregate meanings of Revelation is two-fold - a future (first century) application to the immediate threat of Rome / Nero and the continued Roman line as well, as to our future. So, why would we yet believe a rapture is possible? Clearly, full preterism isn't Biblical!
