Premillennialism 02:Prophecies Kingdom 1


Published on

Premillennialism teaches that prophecies concerning Christ are to be literally, physically interpreted. For instance, it teaches a literal kingdom on earth. This was supposed to happen in the first century, but postponed until a still future date. Teaching such as this causes confusion and speculation. It declares God failed to do what He intended to do—blasphemy.
When allow the Bible to be our guide, we can have confidence in God’s plan. God accomplishes His will. The prophecies about Christ’s first coming were fulfilled and give us confidence in other statements made in the word (Rom. 15:4). The prophecies about His second coming will be fulfilled as well (2 Pet. 3:7-9).
This lesson examines prophecy: general principles & Premillennial perversions.
