Premillennialism is a scary false doctrine. Its very core is based on how one is indoctrinated because of laziness or lack of study, or the pizzazz of a movie (Left Behind), or the sheer number of people that believe covetous men (Hal Lindsey). Do we believe God or don’t we? Are we more interested in a physical, political kingdom that lasts only 1000 years, or the spiritual kingdom of Christ, the Church?
Premillennialism starts with not believing what God has said. From the beginning of scripture, was anything said about God losing? Was anything prophesied about His eternal purpose being thwarted by the Jews? About the Creator of heaven and earth having to change His eternal purpose because He could not overcome His own creation? Is there any one time where God has promised blessings and did not come through? What about punishment? Is there any one time in history where God has promised punishment and it was not fulfilled? NO! Yet the doctrine of Premillennialism is full of the failures of God.Yes. The “God failed in His first attempt” doctrine. Christ is not King sitting on His (David’s) throne as purposed by (continued from front) God. The church was plan “B” because Christ was rejected by the Jews as king. Satan was mightier than Christ. And no, the blood of Christ is not good enough in the supposed 1000 year reign, therefore the rebuilding of the temple and its ordinances and once again reestablishing the law and its form of worship. How absurd! How can one keep Christ down to a physical, earthly kingdom when He has prepared so much for us spiritually in heaven? How can one “believe” when they believe God is a failure?
Let’s look at the most popular scripture of all time: John 3:16. Let us also start with the most popular view (false doctrine):
- For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son; Jesus Christ came to the earth for the salvation of all mankind and shed His precious blood on the cross of Calvary so that all could accept His grace and have their own interpretation of His word.
- that whosever believeth in Him should not perish; there it is, that word again: believeth. One must believe that Jesus is the son of God and all one must do is accept Him, pray Him into one’s on heart, see baptism (Rom. 6:1-4, 1 Pet. 3:21-22) and many other scriptures as figurative or symbolic. BUT THE EXCEPTION IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION. It must all be taken as literal language.
DO NOT STOP HERE! KEEP READING!
- but have everlasting life. – Once saved always saved to receive the many blessing of Christ which He paid a terrible price for so that one can live their life like they always have, without much effort of change. Oh, and also so they can live their life based on how they interpret scripture, so if they disagree with anyone, they can change “churches.”
Christians, wake up! Premillennialism denies God’s eternal purpose. There is no plan “B.” The Church is God’s eternal purpose. Ephesians 3:8-11 – Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
There is so much scripture to refute man’s teachings on this false doctrine, but what it boils down to is: do you believe God?
