The Millennium & the First Resurrection

First Resurrection

John recorded that the martyrs “lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4), and this comprises the first resurrection (Revelation 20:5-6), because those who were in the literal graves (Revelation 20:11-12) or who were buried in the sea (Revelation 20:13) didn’t live again, until the end of the thousand years (Revelation 20:5)! What can be understood from this? Read the rest of this entry »

Yet, a third angel in the fourteenth chapter of the Apocalypse arose and said: “…If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb” (Revelation 14:9-10).

The Wedding Feast

Wedding Feast - 1

I am currently involved in a study of the eschatology of the parables of Jesus. In Matthew 22 Jesus told The Parable of the Wedding Feast. In it Jesus tells a story of a king who made a wedding for his son, and he sent out his servants to those who had been invited. A quick read might overlook the fact that the servants were sent out to the invited guests to extend the second invitation, and this symbolizes the two covenants God made with Israel.[1] This was a common practice among those living in the ancient Middle East. The custom is put forth in the book of Esther chapters five through seven. Although the first banquet was enjoyable, it was merely the forerunner of the second and most important banquet, and it was at the second banquet that the heart of the person making the feast was made known (cf. John 3:16; cf. Esther 7:1-6; Acts 7:13). Read the rest of this entry »

House of God Is Spiritual

Shadow of Christ

According to all three futurist eschatologies—amillennialism, postmillennialism and premillennialism, with some exceptions within the groups—we can expect the establishment of a physical Kingdom at the future return of Jesus to this earth, and Jesus will be visible, i.e. in a physical body and rule out of literal, physical Jerusalem. Historical premillennialists (but not all) and dispensational premillennialists believe the physical Temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem and animal sacrifices will be restored.
