A couple of Items

StormsToday, there appeared an excellent  post from Sam Storms on his website titled Childbirth and Death in the New Heavens and New Earth. that I felt was worth mentioning. It’s definitely worthy of a careful read especially in light of the emphasis that our Dispensational Premillennial and Postmillennial brethren place on this passage to substantiate their view of the millennium.

Also, Kim Riddlebarger appeared on Issues ETC to discuss Chris McNabb’s recent end of the world prediction which was supposed to happen on October 7 of this year. To listen to the audio, please click here.

The Five Points of Amillennialism

While doing some research relating to Covenant Theology, I came across this sermon by Jeffrey D. Johnson on Amillennialism. The title of the sermon is The 5 Points of Amillennialism which undoubtedly peaked my interest seeing that I’m Calvinistic in my soteriology. I found this sermons very well articulated and I thought I would share.

By the way, the five point of Amillennialism according to Johnson are:

I.      Spiritual Israel
II.     Redemptive-Historical Hermeneutic
III.    Already, Not Yet
IV.     No (Geo-Political) Millennium
V.      Catastrophic Second Coming

Summary of Four Eschatological Postitions…

Here is a nice summary of the four main eschatological positions produced by Rose Publications which may especially be useful for those who are just beginning to examine the bible’s message on prophecy. It is presented in a very simple fashion to be able to get the basics on the varying issues that these positions take.

Restoration of All Things PDF

4177ReaJZxL__SY344_BO1,204,203,200_We posted in our online books section a book published by the Gospel Coalition titled The Restoration of all Things written by none other than Dr. Sam Storms. Here is the write up by Amazon:

“Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again!” This foundational liturgical refrain reminds us that what God has already achieved in the past through the life, death, and resurrection of Christ is the foundation for what Scripture says he will do in the future, at the consummation of all things. In this booklet Sam Storms examines the essential elements of Christian eschatological hope—including bodily resurrection, judgment, hell and eternal punishment, and heaven in the presence of God—to show that this hope is a confident expectation rooted in the historical reality of what transpired in the life and death of Christ.

Resurrection Life- A Look at 1 Corinthians 15

img13Here is an excellent sermon by Voddie Baucham on the Resurrection life in which he spends some quality time looking at the resurrection from the dead and how it relates to the end times.

He currently serves as Pastor of Preaching at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, TX.

New Audio on the New Heavens & the New Earth

nhneEternal rest and joy in the presence of God are without doubt the supreme hope of the believer. While there is relatively little in Scripture telling us exactly what we are to expect in the World to Come, there are nevertheless a number of references to New Heavens and a New Earth that do indeed supply a glimpse of our eternal home. In order to understand these things better, we have added a new audio section on the New Heavens and New Earth, containing lectures by Dr. G.K. Beale and Dr. D.A. Carson. May they richly increase your faith, expectation, and listening pleasure!
