One People of God

Partial Preterism sees that all believers throughout history are one people of God. To think that the Church only includes NT Saints is wrong. Let's look at a very well-known passage.

Revelation 21
9 Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12 It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed— 13 on the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

First, we see in verse 9 that we are to see the Bride, the wife of the Lamb. Then we see the Heavenly Jerusalem. Then we see the gates are named for the tribes of Israel. The wall of the city has the names of the Apostles on them... We see the Tribe names, the Apostles, and the Church... This uniting of the OT Saints and NT Saints is played out before our eyes as one people of God...

They are not divided in to OT, NT, and Tribulation Saints... They are one people of God brought into the family the same way...
