Hi! I am new to the forum. I am currently researching the Preterist view. I find it rather convincing overall. I do have a few reservations though. What are your thoughts on Rev 7:9?

My thoughts are if the great tribulation happened in 70 AD would that be enough time for a great number of believers to accrue from every tribe, tongue, and nation that is innumerable. I would love to hear your thoughts and if you know of any preterist theologian who addresses this specifically that I can check out.

Thank you!

Hello Martin3535.
The 12 Tribes are seen complete and protected from the 4 horsemen (Rev.7:1-8), but the horsemen cause tribulation on earth, so those Jews are still on earth.

The Jewish people shared the good news of Jesus through much persecution with gentiles who became part of Gods' family (Rev.7:9.)

It's showing how Gods' people are seen in His presence,

But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, Heb.12:22

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Lk.10:19 KJV

For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Rev.7:17 KJV

whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Jn.4:14 NIV

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" Mt.4:4 NIV
 
I see the scriptures repeating the gospel throughout every generation from the beginning of creation to the end. Not sure if that makes me "preterist."
