What Is the Best Argument for Premillennialism?

I am finishing my PhD this coming year, finally. My dissertation is on a linguistic analysis of the cohesion between Revelation 19–20. Without exception, amillennialists break the unified discourse at Revelation 20:1, being influenced by the chapter break. They retroject the binding of Satan by lifting this event from its immediate context back to the […]

The Myth that Chiliasm (aka Premillennialism) was Condemned in Early Church Councils

Francis X Gumerlock (who is an expert in Patristic commentaries on the book of Revelation) refutes the perpetual myth that Chiliasm was condemned in early church councils; for example at the Council of Constantinople  in 381 or the Council of Ephesus in 431. He begins his essay situating this question by talking about how premillennialism […]

Amillennialism Cannot Have It Both Ways…

In my estimation, this is one of the most acute inconsistencies of amillennial theology in the book of Revelation. “[The amillennial] approach does not fit the literary movement of Revelation. John pictures the period between Christ’s exaltation and return as the time of Satan’s banishment from heaven to earth, where he deceives the nations and […]

Matt Waymeyer on Eschatological Agnosticism | Amillennialism, Premillennialism

Matt Waymeyer has written a a book called Amillennialism and the Age to Come: A Premillennial Critique of the Two-Age Model (Kress Biblical Resources, 2016). (Available from Amazon and Kress.) In the preface he makes a good point about a false dichotomy, something that I have written voluminously on in print, audio, and this blog. […]

Video: Reggie Kelly on Premillennialism, Nature and Purpose of the Millennium, and Prophecies Concerning the City of Jerusalem

I would take issue with one thing he said at the very end of this video. As many posttribulationists think, he unfortunately fails to recognize the biblical distinction between the Antichrist’s great tribulation and the day of the Lord’s wrath. Other than that I appreciate everything else he said.  

Every Self-Respecting Premillennialist Needs to Know this Argument | Premillennialism, Amillennialism, Postmillennialism

How do you like that for a title of a post? But I am being sincere, not sensational. I have never, ever had an amiller or postmiller respond with any meaningful answer to this argument. You—yes, you premiller—can use this same argument on your amill and postmill friends. And it works. What is this biblical […]

Covenant Theology Possesses an Incomplete Gospel Story

Covenant Theology flattens out the beautiful story of the Gospel and ends up robbing Christ of his glory. I am namely speaking of their supersessionist theology that says the church (or Christ) has superseded any promises that God made with national Israel before Christ. The church has become the “new Israel.” God is done with […]

VIDEO | Will People Get Saved after the Rapture during the Day of the Lord’s Wrath?

Will people such as Gentiles get saved after the rapture during the day of the Lord’s wrath? And if so will those who are saved experience the day of the Lord’s wrath? I first responded to the pretribulational theological interpretation of this question before I answered with my prewrath response. I also addressed how the […]

Revelation 11:15 Is Deeply Problematic for Amillennialism

“Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.”” (Rev 11:15 NET) [Greg] Beale has at least two difficulties with Revelation 11:15: (1) At one […]
