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.
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

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!
