This past weekend I gave a paper at the Evangelical Theological Society Northeast Section’s Annual Meeting in Clarks Summit, PA at Baptist Bible Seminary.
The title of my paper is THE TERMINUS A QUO OF THE BINDING OF SATAN: A FUNCTIONAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS OF REVELATION 19:11–20:3.
I argued that the many cohesion ties in Revelation 19:11–20:3 demonstrate that the binding of Satan will happen at Jesus’ second coming, not having already happened at his first coming; therefore, a premillennial reading of the text is more consistent than an amillennial reading.
I also devoted an episode of The Biblical Prophecy Program on this topic of the binding of Satan in an earlier episode:
When Does the Binding of Satan’s Thousand Years Begin? – Revelation 19:11–20:3 Supports Premillennialism, not Amillennialism – Ep. 3
