Jonathan Welton: A Preterist and His Supporters

According to Apostle Dr. Jonathan Welton…
The first resurrection occurred in the first century.
The marriage supper of the Lamb has already happened.
We are in the new heavens and the new earth.
We are not to look forward to the coming of Jesus Christ.
Please read some examples of what he is teaching after the following…
Here is a list of the friends and supporters of Jonathan Welton.  I have listed the names of those who have written blurbs or forwards or recommendations for his books.  I have also listed those that have participated in conferences with him.
Beware of who your leaders are allowing in to your church.  Question the pastors and prophets who would embrace a teacher who denies the first resurrection.
This is not a game.
 This is heresy from an accepted teacher in the charismatic movement.

Here are some quotes from The Art of Revelation by Apostle Dr. Jonathan Welton…
I used to believe the marriage supper of the Lamb was a far distant future event, but our only picture of the timing is in Revelation 19: 7, “Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” According to this verse, the marriage happened right after Heaven rejoiced over the AD 70 destruction of Jerusalem. It happened right before the beast, the false prophet, and those who took the mark of the beast were all judged in Revelation 19: 11– 21.
 
When this happened, the Christian reality changed for the better. On the other side of AD 70, we are not looking forward to Christ’s coming and the end of the age. We get to live in the current reality of His promises and the fullness of the new covenant.

We are now the Bride of Christ. We are not waiting for the marriage supper of the Lamb. We are already married to Him.

Now that we understand the phrase heaven and earth, we can see that the new heaven and new earth refer to new covenant replacements for the old covenant Temple. Thus, the new heaven and new earth are not a future end-of-the-world reality, but they are a present part of our new covenant experience.

In chapter 6, we find these martyrs under the throne crying out for justice, but in chapter 20, the same martyrs are given thrones of their own to reign upon! We know this because of the next verse, which says, “( The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection” (Rev. 20: 5). This phrase, “The rest of the dead,” makes it clear that this group of people is a select number from among the dead…The ones in question, “The rest of the dead,” were those who died in the AD 70 destruction, the non-believing Jews.
 
The first century martyrs were given thrones to reign upon in the Kingdom; this occurred in Revelation 11, when Jesus was declared the King over the kingdoms of the earth  (see Rev. 11: 15) and the first resurrection was indicated (see Rev. 11: 17– 18). We now live inside the Kingdom of God on the earth…
