Christmas Eschatology

Christmas_star1I found this piece written by Derek Rishmawy to be very appropriate for the season. While most of us who celebrate Christmas look back at the incarnation when the Son came into the world, many do not reflect upon what the incarnation will mean for the future; for the final state in the New Heavens and New Earth.

I especially appreciated one point that Rishmawy made when quoting an article from Zondervan academics. He said that in the last century there has been a positive theological movement towards the “earthiness” of Christian hope: We are waiting a New World, one with earth and sky, not merely clouds and harps.

For us “earthy amillennarians”, that is great news!
