The single millennium model forces the reader to adopt a futurist eschatology because the reign of the martyrs who die under the beast is followed by yet another contest prior to the second coming of Christ. Continue reading “Kurt Simmons: Why the Single Millennium Model Fosters a Futurist Eschatology (2004)”
It is this transition period that the rabbis discussed frequently in their Messianic debates. They labeled that period “the days of the Messiah.” Continue reading “Ed Stevens: A Forty Year Millennium? (2003)”
Millennialism teaches the Jews rejected Jesus in the middle of his earthly ministry. This rejection made it impossible to fulfill the prophecy and the purposes of God at that time. Therefore God stopped the prophetic clock, and postponed the fulfillment of his promise, until the second coming of Christ. The Church was created instead, as a sort of an interim measure.

For those who already consider themselves “preterist,” there are two passages in particular where there is disagreement: 1 The. 4, and 1 Cor. 15. ..they yielded Russell’s most controversial opinions and torpedoed any chance at wide-spread adoption of what we might dub “preterist-premillennialism.” But before we get to those passages, let’s set the stage by discussing where Christ is said to reign at his parousia.

Don has asked me to start this off by presenting a few points I find compelling and decisive in terms of proving a 70 AD start to the millennial period.
I do believe that God is progressive in the covenants and periods of time in which He deals with His people and the human race. Although, I believe that this “progessiveness” has to be understood in the context of His promises and His relationship with His people.
the New Covenant period, ‘New heaven and New Earth’, New Jerusalem, Kingdom of God, and the Millennium are not the same. Confusion comes about when we use or equate any two or more of them as one and the same thing.
The student of the history of millennialism will soon learn that two separate traditions regarding this issue are currently being propounded.
