Matthew 24 and Luke 21 are definitely very complicated. I am not surprised about the “complicated cardboard box”. This is the reason why so many people are reconsidering their position or their views on end-times doctrines. The school that favors the preterist view claim that they are able to back up their view with many Scriptures that were previously misinterpreted.
By the way, the preterist view is older than the more popular Roman Catholic view.
Anyway, I will interpret your dream later today. I can unfortunately not do it now.
