God works out His will (Eph. 1:11, 12). Some say everything is God’s will. Some pay lip-service by denying the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan. The truth is, God works out His will, in spite of what men might do. Man has a free will and often resists God. God overrules to accomplish His purpose.

Premillennialism is one of the most predominate false doctrines among denominations. It strikes at the heart of God’s eternal plan, the church (Eph. 3:9-12). It requires a twisting of the Scripture (2 Pet. 3:16). It denies God’s demand of obedience.

This lesson looks at an overview of Premillennialism, the nature of the covenants, and God’s promises to Abraham.
