  • “Why the Early Church Finally Rejected Premillennialism”

    These early [church] critics believed that chiliasm [premillennialism] represented an approach to biblical religion that was sub-Christian, essentially failing to reckon with the full redemptive implications of the coming of Jesus of Nazareth as Messiah. They saw it as an under-realized, a not-fully-Christian, eschatology.




  • “Covenant Theology is NOT Replacement Theology”

    “Covenant Theology is NOT Replacement Theology”

    When Jesus spoke with the two disciples on the day of his resurrection, did Luke say, “And beginning with the New York Times, CNN, Jewish dreamers, scientists, Pat Robertson, and John Hagee, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Israel, the millennial kingdom, and the Temple to be rebuilt in Jerusalem” (see Luke 24:27)?

    Stand Firm Against Deceivers Concerning the Second Coming

    Do not fear when others proclaim the end of the world is near, because of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan and the war in Libya.

    Armageddon: Mother of All Wars or Mount of Assembly?

    Our text concerns the sixth seal, in which demonic forces assemble at the place called Armageddon. Two great forces, Satanic forces and God’s holy people, meet here for the final battle on the great day of God. And like the persecuted Christians in the first century, we who are Christ’s soldiers are warned to watch and always be prepared for this God-appointed battle.


  • The Lost Thousand Years

    The Lost Thousand Years

    The Parable of the Sheep and Goats (Matt 25:31-46) gives the clearest evidence of a single, general resurrection of the righteous and the wicked. “When the Son of Man comes in his glory” together with all his angels, he will sit on his judgment throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, the righteous sheep on his right, the cursed goats on his left. Where’s the millennium in this text?
