    There's a good start there, though, for someone who might have the time to put a devotional series together!

    Editorial
    The Kingdom Has Come (1)
    By David J Engelsma
    The need of the hour – this last hour – is that the Reformed church give clear, bold, public expression to her distinctive faith concerning the last things.

    There is heated controversy in evangelical, conservative circles today over eschatology. Eschatology is the biblical doctrine of the second coming of Christ and the happenings that precede, accompany, and follow this coming. It is the fascinating answer of Jesus to the question of the disciples in Matthew 24:3, “Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”

    Those who profess to be Bible-believing Christians differ radically over future history as controlled by the coming of Christ. Calvinists are deeply involved in the debate.

    But the controversy rages between “premillennialists” (premills) and “postmillennialists” (postmills). The former teach the rapture of the believing church into the air at any moment. This is followed by a period of’ seven years in which Antichrist comes to power and persecutes the Jews. At the end of the seven years, Christ returns personally and visibly to establish an earthly kingdom of peace and prosperity in all the world for a thousand years (“millennium”). He reigns from Jerusalem in Palestine where the nation of Israel has again become the kingdom-people of God as it was under the old covenant. Only after this thousand-year reign of Christ does earthly history end and the eternal state begin.

    The Calvinist participants in the current debate over eschatology are postmills. They proclaim such a victory of the gospel and law of God in the future as shall result in the Christianizing of the whole world. A majority of the worlds population will be converted to Christ. At the very least, great numbers will believe in Christ. Christians will hold the reins of earthly power in all nations. The church should look forward to a long period of earthly peace and prosperity before Christ returns to perfect this temporal dominion in the eternal kingdom. Some say that this long period is literally one thousand years (a “millennium”). Others prophesy hundreds of thousands of years of Christian earthly dominion.

    Virtually missing from the public debate is the classic, creedal Reformed doctrine of the last things. It is high time that the Reformed faith let its voice be heard.

    This is all the more necessary in view of strange, dangerous developments that threaten to affect the life and behavior of Reformed saints. Doctrine never remains safely confined to speeches and books. It always takes form in the practice of those who embrace the doctrine. False doctrine creates foolish and evil conduct. Right doctrine, orthodoxy, forms wise, godly conduct.

    Recently, a widely respected and influential Bible-teacher in the United States has prophesied the return of Christ and the end of the world in September, 1994 (cf. the editorial, “A.D. 1993: The Lord is Corning,” in the Jan. 1, 1993 Standard Bearer). This cannot but have effects on the lives of those who believe the prophecy. These effects will be the same as the effects of similar prophecies in the past. Men and women abandon ordinary life to wait for the great day that is so near. When the expected coming does not occur (and it ‘will not), many become disillusioned, not only with the particular Bible-teacher, but also with the Scriptures themselves which were supposed to teach there turn of Christ on the particular date. The others, ignoring the huge blunder of their master, commit themselves to him even more slavishly, so that a new cult is formed.

    Other dangerous developments are the direct results of the hope that the kingdom of Christ is destined to come to earthly power in history. Calvinistic postmills are forming alliances with Arminian, charismatic, premills to bring this kingdom to pass in the United States. They are calling other Reformed Christians to join these alliances. Such alliances are fatal to the confession and practice of the Reformed faith.

    There is also the strong temptation to have recourse to civil revolution and physical violence in order to bring about the earthly kingdom of Christ. The hope of an earthly kingdom is always vulnerable to this temptation. There are ominous signs that some are yielding to this temptation. Francis A. Schaeffer advocated resistance to the state as the last resort of Christians against unlawful authority in his A Christian Manifesto. That Schaeffer does not shrink from extending this resistance to all-out war is plain from his appeal to the American Revolution in which “civil disobedience led to open war in which men and women died” (p. 130).

    Operation Rescue, the movement of evangelical opposition to the state-authorized murder of the unborn, is presently engaging in civil disobedience as a tactic to overthrow the kingdom of darkness and to establish the kingdom of light. It is calling all true Christians to join in this violence in the name of Christ the King.

    It is time, therefore, for the Reformed view of the coming of the Day of Christ to be aired.

    This view is “amillennialism.” It holds that the millennium of Revelation 20, the one passage in Scripture that mentions a thousand-year period, is the figurative description of the New Testament era from Christ’s ascension until shortly before His return. In distinction from premillennialism, which thinks that Christ will come before a literal millennium, and from postmillennialism, which thinks that Christ will come after a literal millennium, amillennialism denies that there will be any literal millennium.

    On the Reformed view, the Bible teaches that the wicked world will make steady increase in its rebellion against God (Matt. 24:12; II Tim. 3). The future of the nominal, visible church in history is that there will be a great apostasy from the truth (II Thess. 2:1-3). A coming Antichrist will unite the nations in a worldwide kingdom of the devil (II Thess. 2; Rev. 13). Then will take place a severe persecution of the true church of Jesus Christ (Matt. 24:21, 22; Rev. 13). During the reign of Antichrist, Christ will come bodily and visibly “with power and great glory” to consume Antichrist with the spirit of His mouth; to raise the dead; to conduct the final judgment; and to renew the creation as the home of His eternal kingdom (Matt. 24:30, 31; II Thess. 2; I Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 20:11 ff.; II Pet. 3).

    Reformed amillennialism observes that for all the sound and fury of the strife between the Calvinistic postmills and the Arminian, dispensational premills, there is striking, significant agreement between-these two eschatological errors.

    Both agree that the believing church does not face a coming Antichrist and persecution. The premills rapture the church out of danger. The postmills put the Antichrist safely into the past. Some of them explain “Antichrist” as the Roman empire that persecuted the early church. Others make it the Roman Catholic Church at the time of the Reformation. We could say that, whereas the premills rapture the church upwards in space, the postmills rapture Anti- Christ backwards in time. In either case, the future of the church is rosy. This is appealing. It is also a mistake with serious practical implications for the people of God. They are not forewarned of the fiery trial that awaits them in the crucible of the kingdom of the beast.

    Both premills and postmills agree also that there will be a literal millennium - a “golden age” in this world’s history for the church. This “golden age” will be the kingdom of Christ. What is especially objectionable in this agreement of both premills and postmills is the notion that the kingdom of Christ in this world is a carnal kingdom. It is a reign of Christ that dominates the nations politically, culturally, and economically. It is the exercise of Christ’s power by presidents, judges, executioners, national committees for the arts, and secretaries of the treasuries. It is a citizenry that consists of all mankind, for every man will both be subject to the rule of Christ and be beneficiary of it during the millennium. It is a peace and a prosperity that are purely earthly, as earthly as international freedom from war, booming national economies, and deliverance from crime and disease.

    The glorious carnal kingdom of Jesus Christ!

    This carnal kingdom of Christ is still future. It has still to come.

    In the thinking of both the premills and the postmills, the kingdom of Christ has not yet come. The attempt of Jesus to establish the kingdom at His first coming was a failure. The premills cheerfully acknowledge this failure. Israel’s rejection of the offered kingdom by their Messiah effectively postponed the kingdom to the millennium.

    The postmills pay lip-service to Christ’s realization of His kingdom already by the preaching of the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. But their hearts are not in it. Especially for the “reconstructionist” postmills, prominent in the current eschatological controversy, the establishment of the kingdom that really counts is the carnal kingdom of the millennium. This kingdom represents victory. The spiritual kingdom of the confessing church with which Reformed amillennialism is content is nothing but defeat.

    Some kingdom! Another carnal kingdom like the kingdoms of this world.

    Some King! A failure, lo these 2000 years.

    Some coming of the kingdom! After 2000 years of preaching and working in the Name of the crucified and risen Christ, the kingdom still is mainly, or even exclusively, in the future of New Testament history.

    Reformed amillennialism is not impressed.

    We have news for the premills and postmills, as we do for every man. It is good news. The kingdom has come. The kingdom is here and now. It is here and now as fully, gloriously, and victoriously as it ever will or can be, this side of Christ’s coming and eternity.

    Do the premills and the postmills not see it?

    The Religious Affiliation of Best-Selling Protestant Christian Writer
    Max Lucado
     
    Max Lucado is a member and preacher in the conservative religious body known as the "Churches of Christ" (or individually as "church of Christ"). Today Max Lucado is the senior minister at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. The Oak Hills Church dates back to the early l900s, when it was known as the Grove Avenue Church of Christ. The Oak Hills Church (which now has weekly attendance of about 3,500 people) is affiliated with Stone-Campbell fellowship known as the Churches of Christ. As is typical of websites for Stone-Campbell churches which avoid use of the word "denomination", this site is circumspect about identifying its denominational affiliation, but the site's "Vision" page (http://www.oakhillschurchsa.org/About/Vision/) on which the church's theology is summarized clearly presents a summary of the Churches of Christ doctrines, beliefs and practices.

    LindaR reacted to Alan in Clarence Larkin - Revelation   
    Brethren,
    The prophetical doctrinal beliefs that Larkin teaches in the book of Revelation are correct and not heretical. The Lord Jesus is coming again with out any signs and before the start of the 7 Year Tribulation Period. Larkin was entirely correct in this doctrine.
    The prophetical doctrinal beliefs of the Preterists, Calvinists, a-millennialists, post-millennialists are heretical.

    I think it goes back to what I've brought up before -- discipleship.  The Reformed Theologians are much more prominent today, they are in the public forum and have made quite a name for themselves.  John MacArthur, Max Lucado, John Piper (esp. Piper since he's "Baptist") are very popular.  For a long time I didn't realize Lucado was Reformed.  I stayed away from his stuff because I saw it as largely "fluff" but a friend gave hubby a little book by him for a study the friend wanted to do and something in the bio on the back revealed his Reformed connection. 
    My husband had a First Sergeant a few years back who was very vocal about being Christian and was trying to hold his recruiters to Christian standards on the job, but he was not mature at all in the Word.  He would make a statement and claim biblical support, then ask hubby to back him up and hubby would have to defer from answering, because it was very way off base scripturally and to point it out in front of the men would be bad.  We knew the church he went to, it was a good IFB church.  One day, though, he happened to park next to our car and when we were leaving I saw in his backseat a MacArthur Study Bible and was aghast. 
    We attend a very good IFB church.  The people love the Lord and are extremely faithful.  We often have more people Wednesday night than Sunday morning!  The men in the church take turns speaking on Wednesday evenings.  Hubby recently started a series on the "basics."  He taught on the character of God a few months ago.  The people in the church raved about the lesson.  I don't think they have every been taught anything like that before.  Last month he touched on the Bible, will follow up on that again next month.  They loved that lesson as well.  Nothing should surprise us anymore, but I have to say that we are quite shocked that people don't seem to know these basics, that they've never been taught before.  People desperately need to be grounded in the fundamentals.  If we try to warn people about all the "bad stuff" out in the world we could never warn them about everything.  When agents are trained to spot counterfeit currency, they are made to memorize genuine bills, not become familiar with all the examples of counterfeits.  If one has the genuine article committed to memory, then a counterfeit will stick out like a sore thumb.  So, teaching the truth, grounding in the basics will help people be prepared to spot the false that is constantly being thrown at them.
    And while we may ask others for their thoughts about a topic, or inquire about suggested passages for something, we use those as a springboard for our own research.  We do not simply take anyone's word for anything.  This has caused us to butt heads with a couple different pastors and continually look for new churches.  We've kind of been like vagabonds, going from church to church looking for a good fit.  It is really hard to find a good church nowadays.  Thankfully we have found one and are able to serve there.  God is truly faithful and gracious.

    You are correct. The prophetic heresies of the Reformers, Roman Catholic Church, Reformed Baptists, are now creeping into the ranks of the independent, Fundamental Baptists.

    I started reading my copy of "Rightly Dividing" today and was very disappointed to see him teaching the gap theory.  *sigh*  it is so hard to find someone who is solid on every issue.
    Thanks for the info.  I found Dispensational Truth on amazon.com at a good price....

    Exactly NN....the tribulation period is called the time of Jacob's (Israel's) trouble (Jeremiah 30:7).  It is also called Daniel's 70th week. (Daniel 9:24-27)....all dealing with Israel...as is the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24-25; Mark 13; Luke 17 & 21)
    Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

    Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
    Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
    Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
    Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
