This is not even worthy of a reply.

Yes, of course. There were great earthquakes in diverse places, the sun and the moon were darkened, the seas turned to blood, one third of all the vegetation in the Earth was destroyed, one third of all human life was destroyed, all the nations of the earth came up against Israel, the water became undrinkable, and if God hadn’t intervened all flesh would have been destroyed, all this happened before the people standing in front of Jesus passed away.

Ok, if you say so.

Yes, if you read the Bible Biblically, and simply evaluate the prophetic vocabulary the same way you do everywhere else in the Bible where it is used.

Yes, reading the Bible in terms of today's headlines is fun, and would be an entertaining parlor game it if weren't for the aborted careers and truncated lives left in its wake. However, reading the Bible in terms of the Bible leads to sanity, and eager victorious living for the glory of the King.

Post-mil folks tend to home-school their kids, and arrange their lives so that their grandchildren will be better off. One mother influenced by Camping took a knife to her throat -- after doing thus to her small daughters. A less spectacular, but even more devastating, crisis is upon us now -- and we have our heads so far up our prophetic fundaments that we can't read the writing on the wall. 80 to 90% of evangelical young people jump ship soon after leaving home. There is a remnant that stays the course -- home-schooling Calvinist families see 95% of their kids grow up to walk with God -- but the evangelical subculture is in a Gadarene nose-dive. And doesn't seem to care.
