(VIDEO) Reading 1 Corinthians 15 in a Jewish Cemetery on Resurrection Day

Reading 1 Corinthians 15 in a Jewish Cemetery on Resurrection Day | Easter 2018 “Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless […]

Is Jesus Currently on David’s Throne?

Michael J. Vlach writes: The purpose of this blog post is to examine Peter’s use of Psalm 132:11 in Acts 2:30 with a view toward grasping Peter’s understanding of the throne of David concept. Acts 2 describes the baptizing and filling ministry of the Holy Spirit after Jesus’ ascension. This is all related to Jesus, […]

Is Satan’s so-called present-age binding preventing the nations from being deceived?

Amillennialists are fond of asserting that Satan is bound in this present age only in the sense of preventing nations from being deceived from accepting the Gospel. Satan, we are told, is not bound to prevent individuals from being deceived, only nations. A glaring flaw in this thinking is the obvious fact that the Gospel-hating […]

Why Revelation 19 and Its Battle of Armageddon Does NOT Describe the BEGINNING of the Second Coming of Christ – Ep. 93

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: The ‘Offense’ of the Election of Israel and their Activity during the Millennium with the Gentile Nations

 

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 […]
