A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism
A proper reading of Revelation 20 does not support the view of postmillennialism. This article exegetes the passage and shows how it gives grounds for amillennialism.
A Present or Future Millennium?
The author is of the opinion that the subject of the second coming of Christ should be studied, as with all other passages, by means of the analogy of faith. The author uses this method to deal with such Scriptures as Revelation 20 in his argument for amillennialism.
The Millennial Reign (Part I)
In this article, the author sets out to explain the various viewpoints on the millennium. Three such views are identified: premillennialism, postmillennialism, and amillennialism. He briefly points out that amillennialists seem to be closest to the truth of Scripture.
A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism (Part XIII)
In this article, the author concludes the argument that Christ's rule today is the fulfillment of his reign on earth as prophesied in such texts as Psalm 72. This is the point of view of amillennialism.
A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism (Part XII)
As the author continues with a defence of amillennialism over against postmillennialism, the argument turns to the amillennial view itself, which emphasizes the rule of Christ Jesus in the present age. Thus, this view is opposed to a specific time period of a literal 1000 years of Christ's rule, as advocated by many postmillennials.
What about Revelation 20? (Part 4)
This is a continuation of the role of Revelation 20:4-6 in the debate on amillennialism, or other theologies such as premillennialism and postmillennialism. The author focuses on the believer's reign with Christ, explaining the identity of the saints, the nature of the first resurrection, and the role of the "rest of the dead."
A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism (Part V)
This is a continuation of the defence of amillennialism in contrast to other theologies of eschatology. In this article, the author grapples with the difficulties of Matthew 24.
What about Revelation 20? (Part 3)
The author continues to deal with Revelation 20 as a Scripture text supporting amillennialism rather than premillennialism. Specifically, the issue of the binding of Satan for a thousand years is dealt with. The issue of the literal or figurative interpretation of the thousand years is also discussed.
A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism (Part IV)
In this article on amillennialism, the author stresses that the contents of Revelation 20 disprove rather than affirm the postmillennial position. The main supporting arguments are those prophetic events given by the Lord Jesus in Matthew 24.
What about Revelation 20? (Part 2)
The author seeks to prove that the millennium spoken of in Revelation 20 is parallel to the events in Revelation 19. Thus, the author points to the repetitive nature of the book of Revelation, arguing for Amillennialism as scriptural.
A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism (Part III)
The author clearly states the eschatological position of Amillennialism. This view is supported by the Reformed creeds, as well as the outplay of natural events in history.
A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism (Part II)
The author explains what is meant by the terms amillennialism and postmillennialism. With reference primarily to Revelation 20, the author then refutes the view of postmillennialism.
A Defence of (Reformed) Amillennialism (Part I)
The author defends the view of amillennialism, and in opposition to the view of postmillenialism.
The article looks at what the Reformed creeds teach in relation to postmillennialism and premillennialism. It shows that the creedal stance is amillennialism.
A Defense of (Reformed) Amillennialism – Matthew 24
By looking at the place of signs characterizing the coming of Christ, and the place of the antichrist from Matthew 24, this article argues that postmillennialism has no basis in Scripture. Instead, it argues for the position of the amillennialism.
2 Thessalonians 1 Supports Amillennialism
Poythress believes that 2 Thessalonians 1 provides support for amillennialism. He considers separately midtribulational premillennialism, post-tribulational premillennialism, and postmillennialism and its understanding of the rapture, in the light of 2 Thessalonians 1. Poythress also provides a careful reading of 2 Thessalonians 1 in the context of first-century Thessalonica.
Optimism and Pessimism – Science and Eschatology
How can a Christian give himself to work for the coming of the kingdom of God, while we know that the present world is destined for destruction? A very optimistic view of the future and the possibilities of science often leads to a postmillennial view of eschatology.
