THE FALLACY AND FOOLISHNESS OF POST-MILLENNIALISM (Seven great Truths denied)
THE GREATEST DOCTRINES HATED IN THE PRESENT CHURCH WORLD IS THE TWO TRIUMPHANT TRUTHS OF THE RAPTURE AND THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE THRONE OF DAVID. These two incredible Bible Truths are set in clear terms throughout the First and Second Testaments. The only way to deny these wonderful doctrines is to be blinded by Replacement Theology. You must believe that the Church has replaced Israel and that God has totally divorced His own people, the Jews. To do this you must take multiple Scriptures to the Jewish people in the First Testament and somehow by slight of interpretation transfer them to the New Testament Church.
Here are seven wonderful Truths or Bible Doctrines that are denied or trashed when someone teaches Post-Millennialism or Dominionism.
1. THE TRIUMPHANT FUTURE FOR THE NATION OF ISRAEL AS THE CENTER OF WORLD GOVERNMENT.
2. THE EARTHLY REIGN OF THE BRIDE OF JESUS CHRIST OVER THE GENTILE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.
3. THE JUDGEMENT OF THE DEVIL OR SATAN IN THE BOTTOMLESS PIT FOR 1000 YEARS.
4. A JEWISH CAPITOL IN THE ENLARGED CITY OF JERUSALEM.
5. THE SUBJUGATION OF THE ENTIRE WORLD UNDER THE KINGSHIP OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
6. THE FINAL DISPOSAL AND ELIMINATION OF ALL FALLEN ANGELS OR DEMON SPIRITS FROM THE WORLD.
7. THE RESTITUTION OF ALL THINGS THAT GOD’S PROPHETS HAVE SPOKEN SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN. Peter stated by the Holy Ghost after the miracle in Acts 3, “Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” (Acts 3:21)
Abraham looked for this Golden Kingdom; why should we be ashamed to do the same? The Holy Scripture records, “By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles (a tent or cloth hut) with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” (Hebrews 11:9-10) His acquaintance with God and the revelations of truths, though much less than present, assured him that after the present age there was a celestial kingdom. He endured the tents and huts in grand anticipation of the golden future. Faith was his stay.
The First Covenant is filled with the hope of the future. Almost every prophet has some revelation of this great reality. Isaiah gave a vivid description in Isaiah 65:17-25, “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.” (Isaiah 65:17-25)
Zechariah clearly placed this day as the day (revelation) of the Lord (Jesus Christ) when He would descend from the Father’s right hand to take possession from our enemies. “Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle . . .” “And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” “In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and see the therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” (Zechariah 14:3, 9, 20-21)
“Righteousness will cover the earth as waters cover the sea, the wolf and the lamb will lay down together, the sword and the spear will be beaten into harvesting instruments, the earth will learn war no more.” The First Covenant literally abounds with these kinds of expressions as Holy Ghost inspired servants labored under pressure, but lived with spiritual eyes trained on the Golden Kingdom. They knew better than to even suggest this kingdom would be of their own doing. It was the “payday someday” that they lived to enjoy. Paul said, “(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise.” (Hebrews 11:38-39) Believe me; they will yet receive the promise!
This hope of a golden age was so embedded in the Jewish mindset that the disciples of Jesus could not grasp His kingdom concepts.They wanted an earthly kingdom, but He was establishing a spiritual one. Even at His ascension in Acts, they were still asking the question, “. . . wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6) The Messiah, as they supposed, was to fulfill all those golden promises. They finally saw the church age or dispensation as the interlude between Christ’s death and the golden future. After they were filled with the Holy Spirit, they labored untiringly, always watching for Jesus to return to get them. His coming was their Biblical signal that it was time for the golden kingdom. We are still watching as they did for that event (the Rapture) and the beginning of “the consummation of all things”.
OUR GIFT IS A CD OR CASSETTE OF TODAY’S BROADCAST THAT YOU CAN SHARE OR STUDY ABOUT THE GREAT TRUTH OF THE GOLDEN KINGDOM OF ONE THOUSAND YEARS.
Also, I will send a sermon entitled, “Born Again, An Overcomer”. When we fully grasp the coming Kingdom of Jesus Christ on this earth with Satan in the bottomless pit we know why all hell hates the truth. Next Saturday we will continue to look at the Biblical teaching of this wonderful subject.
