Cracking the Apocalypse Code

Pre-mill? Post-mill? Or A-mill? The subject of the millennium, often portrayed as a period of unprecedented peace, ironically has been a theological battlefield for millennia. Missions agencies have refused missionaries, churches have rejected pastors, and seminaries have dismissed professors for lacking proper millennial credentials. Such conflict might tempt us to shun John’s Revelation visions and prefer Scripture’s clearer, safer waters. However, the Bible’s last book promises to bless both reader and hearer (Rev. 1:1-3) and should not be ignored. Its strange scenes are for allof God’s servants—to fortify us to fight, not each other, but our real enemy. Read more»

  1. Awesome! I for one have always been kind of an a-mill guy with many questions. This indeed paints a beautiful picture of the current opinion in most reformed circles. Most importantly, it notes the unbiblical treatment of other brethren by some over an admittedly difficult subject.
    Thanks for the spirit in which the address is given. The optimism is catchy!
    And biblical- no matter your view on the order in which things unfold.

  2. Great article.
    Just curious, but why is their a Google Ad for earning an online seminary degree on this page?

  3. Because WP sells space to google. I don’t see it but I believe you. This is a free (to me and to you) WordPress blog. I pay a little host audio files and that’s it.

  4. Makes sense. That would explain why I didn’t see the online degree from WSC!

  5. What a beautyful summary of Revelation! We should never forget that this book, especially in times and places where the Church is persecuted, is seen as a book of comfort when it doesn’t seem to look good for her and her King. Our eyes can be so focused on the turmoil on this earth, but this book reminds us time and time again that His will be done and His case is already determined for His glory and eventhough things seem to get worse (I think we still have to endure the great tribulation in the -near?- future, which seem to be shorter than a lifetime according to Matt. 24: 22,29), we may know that our redemption is at hand.
    Many Chiliasts seem to think that Satan is not bound because he still goes around like a roaring lion, but I am afraid they don’t reckon with what will happen when he “must be released for a short while” when we are in the midst of that period. I am also afraid that positive speculation will confuse them, altough we may know that His saints will persevere to the end.
