5 Reasons Why Revelation 19 and Its Battle of Armageddon Does NOT Describe the BEGINNING of the Second Coming of Jesus

I was interviewed by Joel Richardson recently on his The Underground. We addressed the very deep-seated assumption that many hold where Revelation 19 and its depiction of Jesus on a horse in the sky at the battle of Armageddon describes the beginning of the second coming of Christ. Amillennialists, pretribulationists, posttribulationists, and other eschatological positions take this position. […]

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 […]

Why Jesus’ Prophecy in Matthew 10:23 Refers to His Second Coming, NOT to His First Coming – Ep. 82

I tell you the truth, […]

On David Chilton’s Preterist-Postmillennial Commentary on the Book of Revelation, Days of Vengeance

Preterists commonly accuse (mock) futurist commentaries on the book of Revelation for sensational interpretations. Admittedly, there are more than a few popular pretrib commentaries on Revelation that rightly are “way out there.” However, David Chilton’s postmillennial and preterist commentary on Revelation rivals the most kooky and far-fetched interpretations on the book of Revelation: The Days […]

VIDEO: Preterism, the Antichrist, and the Early Church Fathers

On Antichrist’s Persecution of the Church: Epistle of Barnabas, Shepherd of Hermas, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Hippolytus, Cyprian – Ep. 71 In this episode I read the primary literature of quotes from seven early church fathers who explicitly taught that that the Church would suffer at the hands of the Antichrist before Jesus returns: On […]

Preterism Fails to Find Prophetic Fulfillment of ‘Many Messiahs’ from Jesus’ Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24:5

Preterism claims that Matthew 24-25 was fulfilled around the time of the Jewish revolt of AD 66–70, or at least from the time of Christ to the fall of Jerusalem. I want to draw your attention to one of several prophecies from Jesus’ Olivet Discourse that is deeply problematic for preterist interpreters. “For many (πολλοὶ) […]

How to Prepare for Jesus’ Second Coming: 4 Views that Militate Against Biblical Readiness – Ep. 65

http://traffic.libsyn.com/thebiblicalprophecyprogram/How_to_Prepare_for_Jesus__Second_Coming_4_Views_that_Militate_Against_Biblical_Readiness.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedI started a series talking about how to prepare for Jesus’ second coming in a biblical fashion. Today I described four views that militate against this readiness. 1. Pretribulationism: The warnings are relegated to “tribulation saints.” We will be raptured out of here so we do not […]

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 […]
