Review of the High King of Heaven

indexI wrote a review of the High King of Heaven written by Dean Davis on Amazon. This is a book you will want to purchase for  your library.

There have been a number of scholarly works written in the past on the topic of the end times from the Amillennial perspective including classic works by Geerhardus Vos & Antony Hoekema. Over the last few years, a group of eschatologists have taken up the challenge to write books from the Amillennial perspective but focusing upon reaching the average Christian reader. The High King of Heaven by Dean Davis is the latest work in this endeavour and has been one of the most successful in reaching this goal. The High King of Heaven is a true systematic eschatology for the average man! The HKOH simplifies the understanding of the bible’s message on the end times by dividing the outlook into three simple categories. To understand what the bible says about the end times one must understand what it says about the Kingdom, the Millennium and the Consummation. Davis then unpacks these three themes in three sections in the book simplifying how we are to view this important topic. While writing with straightforwardness, the amount of topics and information that Davis addresses makes it unique. There are very few volumes on eschatology out there that deal with the amount of subjects and scripture like this one. Continue reading

Jeremiah’s Promise of a New Covenant

In the Great End Time Debate, Jeremiah 31:31-34—God’s promise of a New Covenant with the House of Israel—is a true bone of contention. Realizing that this promise appears right in the middle of a host of related prophecies predicting “Israel’s” latter day restoration under the Messiah, and believing that these prophecies will be fulfilled among the Jews in a future Millennium, premillennarians are anxious to claim Jeremiah’s promise of a New Covenant for ethnic Israel.

Alas, the NT bars the way. For whenever the phrase “New Covenant” appears in the NT, it is applied to the Church, comprised both of Jew and Gentile, and not simply to ethnic Israel (Mt. 26:28, 1 Cor. 11:25, 2 Cor. 3:6-7, Heb. 8:7-8, 13, 9:15, 12:24). For this reason amillennarians conclude, naturally enough, that when God spoke through Jeremiah in 31:31-24, He was in fact speaking of eschatological “Israel”: His Church, of which ALL the saints of All time are members, both Jew and Gentile.

In this post, author Dean Davis examines Jeremiah’s great promise of a New Covenant in light of Hebrews 8. We hope it will give you fresh insight, not only into the words of Jeremiah, but into all OT Kingdom prophecy.

More on the Revelation

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.
