This Week’s Amillennial Resources

revelation_churchesDr. Kim Riddlebarger posted an interesting review of a book authored by Dr. David Jeremiah titled Agents of the Apocalypse. The book seemingly uses fictional characters to help people understand the book of Revelation. Dr. Riddlebarger argues in this article that there is a tremendous  inconsistency in using fictional characters while adhering to the dispensationalists hermeneutical principle to interpret the bible “literally”.

Also this week, Dr. Sam Storms posted a couple of posts on his blog dealing with the importance of the second coming of the Lord Jesus titled Four Important Truths Relating to the Second Coming of Christ (Part 2). While many are waiting for raptures and women riding beasts, Dr. Storms suggests that much of what we must anticipate in the 2nd -coming is found in the text of Hebrews 9:27-28

Finally, we posted an excellent article written by Dr. D.A. Carson on the question of the most common errors in our understanding and proclamation of the Kingdom. The article has been posted under our Kingdom section.

Left Behind Theology

left behindWe came across this recent blog post from Austin Brown, entitled “Left Behind Theology: A Critical Look”. The author did a fantastic job of examining the theology undergirding Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkin’s popular novels and movies: Dispensationalism. We strongly encourage our readers to scrutinize this position beneath the light of Scripture itself, since among evangelicals it is indeed the most popular eschatology, and yet, by our lights, laced with major error. You’ll find Austin’s article in our section on Dispensationalism. Other resources on this subject are available in other parts of this website.

Some New Entries

10371This week we’ve added a few new resources that we would like to share with our readers.

The first is an article entitled “My shift to Covenant Theology and Amillennialism,” written by David L. White. Like Sam Storms, White transitioned from Dispensational Premillennialism to Reformed Amillennialism. The essay has been added to our General Articles section.

Speaking of Sam, in the same section we have also included a short testimony of his own journey from Dispensationalism, through Historic Premillennialism, and into Amillennialism. Your comments and questions about these articles are most welcome.

More on the Revelation

revWe greatly enjoy supplying you with fresh resources that will help you understand and appreciate Amillennial eschatology. Our goal is to make this website your one stop shopping center for all things Amillennial!

So that you can be aware of new posts, we will be announcing them regularly through this blog. If you are interested in monitoring these additions, please click on Follow Amillennialism, found on our home page.

And now for today’s news: We’ve just added some new materials to our section on the Revelation.

First, there is an article by Sam Waldron, entitled, A Redemptive-Historical, Modified Idealist Approach to the Book of Revelation. This is a great piece, explaining how to interpret the Revelation in a manner that is consistent with the teaching of the whole Bible.

We have also added a post from Issues Etc., called The End Times in Revelation. It includes an excellent time line of the Revelation, and also points out common misinterpretations of the main symbols.

Finally, we hope you will enjoy Dean Davis’ helpful summaries of the purpose, literary genre, structure, and main symbols of the Revelation. These two essays supply a conceptual map that will prepare you for your exciting journey through this challenging book.
