Christ's Kingdom on Earth

Though most Christians refrain from predicting exactly when our world will end, many believe that when earth's finale does arrive, it will be a catastrophe. They expect that before Christ comes back to reclaim His own, Satan will escape his chains and return to wreak havoc on our planet. Details vary, but the general assumption is the same: things will get much, much worse before they get better.

But is this really what the Bible teaches?

Leaving aside the theological terms that often confuse and muddle this question, Douglas Wilson instead explains eschatology as the end of the greatest story in the world--the story of mankind. He turns our attention back to the stories and prophecies of Scripture and argues for "hopeful optimism": the belief that God will be true to His promises, that His will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven, and that the peace and good will we sing about at Christmas will one day be a reality here on earth.

"good primer on postmillenialism"

Comments: Wilson makes a compelling case for postmillenialism in this book. He begins by comparing the traditional premillenial interpretation to the US's departure from Vietnam. He writes, "In this view, the world is God's Vietnam, and the return of Christ consists of the few lucky ones helicoptered off a roof during the fall of Saigon." This is not the kind of God we serve, nor is it the type of 'end of the world' scenario that the Bible presents. I'm not yet fully convinced of the postmillenial positio... More details

"More of a Question with Considerations than a direct Apologetic"

Comments: If you are already postmill, this is an exciting "conversation" on historical optimism. If you are not postmill, or are close to someone who is not, this is an excellent ice breaker on the subject. A kind of "Easy Chairs, Hard Words" for eschatology.
