“Amillennialism: Millennium Today” by David Wright

“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.

Left Behind? LaHaye, Jenkins, the Rapture and the New Testament

The Book of Revelation is to be understood cyclically and figuratively. That is, its symbols remain symbols, and the judgements are reinforced by repetition. If we take the book chronologically, then we reach the end of the story at 11:14-18.

“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)?

Why Every Self-Respecting Reformed Christian Must be a Tuliper…

"How many points?" Surely there are more than five. And when that larger number of points taught by the Reformed confessions is not respected, the famous five are jeopardized, indeed, dissolved —and the ongoing spiritual health of the church is placed at risk.

UPDATED: Once a Date Setter, Always a Date Setter

Why are dispensationalists so vulnerable to datesetting? I believe that their eschatological system breeds datesetting. They see God's plan for the world as subservient to his great plan for saving national Israel.

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. All of these are part of God's unshakable plan for the eventual redemption of his elect from sin, death, and Satan. As David says, “I shall not be shaken” because the Lord “gives me counsel … [and] he is at my right hand” (Psa 16:7-8).

Reformed: More Than the 5 Points of Jesus and the Apostles

There are, therefore, more than five points and ... there cannot be such a thing as a "five-point Calvinist" or "five-point Reformed Christian" who owns just those five articles taken from the Canons of Dort and who refuses to accept the other "points" made by genuinely Reformed theology.

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

January 9, 2009
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?
