In the early part of 1997 I had a paradigm shift in my eschatology (For the full story on how and why Berean Bible Church was founded please see the message, The Birth of a Preterist Church). The Lord opened my eyes to the Preterist view of eschatology. This view has had a major impact on my interpretation of scripture (see my message Rightly Dividing the Word).
Until January 1997 I had never heard of the preterist view of eschatology, so I obviously could not believe what I didn't know. When a friend first shared it with me I thought he was MAD. As I began to study this view I saw that though it went against what the majority of the Church was teaching it was what the Bible was teaching. I had to make a choice between tradition and the Scripture, the choice was easy. If this view is new to you I would ask that you would openly and honestly look at what it is saying. Almost every book in the New Testament talks of a "soon" return of Yeshua Christ and it is very hard to make 2,000 years "soon" by any hermeneutic. The major issue to me in all of this is the Inspiration of Scripture. Don't let tradition rob you of the precious truths which our Lord taught. I challenge you to be a Berean and daily search the Scripture to see if these things are so.
