Ward Fenley | The Myth of Already But Not yet

Ward FenleyI am sure we all can confess that the “already but not yet” idea has never set completely without wonder in our minds. Certainly dispensationalism is out because their hermeneutic is basically “Not yet” period. They deny that Jesus is King now, and they deny His present rule.

The question we must ask is, why are they wrong? They say all biblical prophecy concerning a time when Israel would dwell safely is yet unfulfilled. Yet most of those who deny dispensationalism would argue that we already have the kingdom but the physical aspect of the kingdom is not here yet. I think that a valid question must be asked: where in the Old Testament does it ever say that when the kingdom comes it would be divided into an already but not yet? A good example of this would be Zechariah: Continue reading

Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

The Scripture most generally referred to by Amillennialists as proof of their position is the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares (Matt. 13:24-30, 36-43). Here it is pointed out that the two grow together until the harvest, which is the end of the world. This is taken to mean not only that good and evil continue to exist side by side, which is the real meaning of the parable, but that the proportion between the two remains practically constant as do the stalks in a field.

The Binding of Satan

The usual amillennial interpretation of Revelation 20:2 is that the “binding” of Satan took place at the first advent, and that it was accomplished when Christ triumphed over him at the cross. In other words, the atonement is said to have been the effective means for the binding of Satan, and on that basis the Millennium is said to have begun with the first advent and to continue until the second. The Scripture cited to prove this is Matthew 12:29: “How can one enter into the house of the strong man, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.” Continue reading

The Kingdom Prophecies

Much of what we would say in refutation of Amillennialism has already been said in setting forth the postmillennial position and does not need to be repeated here. We must say, however, that we understand the Bible to teach very definitely that the world is to be converted to Christianity before Christ returns, and that the amillennial position, which makes no provision for a Christianized world, leaves a whole continent of prophecies unexplained, many of which then become quite meaningless. The kingdom prophecies of the Old Testament, as well as various statements in the Psalms and in the New Testament, often in highly figurative language, surely foretella future golden age of some kind. We are bound to say that in this regard we agree with the Premillennialists, as against the Amillennialists, that there is to be a Millennium, that there is in fact yet something great in store for the human race before this world order ends. But since we believe that the premillennial notion of an earthly kingdom after the return of Christ is in error, we are convinced that these prophecies and promises must Bud fulfillment before that event. What shall we say, for instance, to the following? Continue reading

Statements By Representative Amillennialist

Perhaps the best way to set forth the doctrinal position of Amillennialism is to let its leading advocates speak for themselves. This we shall do in considerable detail. Probably the most representative spokesman in the United States is Dr. Louis Berkhof, for 38 years a professor in Calvin Seminary and author of a very excellent Systematic Theology (1941). He says: Continue reading

INTRODUCTION

The definition of Amillennialism as previously cited is: “Amillennialism is that view of the Last Things which holds that the Bible does not predict a ‘Millennium’ or period of world-wide peace and righteousness on this earth before the end of the world.”

The author of this definition, Dr. J. G. Vos, has observed further by way of explanation that, Continue reading

Osama Bin Laden: “Our terrorism is a good accepted terrorism, because it’s against America, it’s for the purpose of defeating oppression so America would stop supporting Israel, who is killing our children.”

Does Eschatology Matter? | AUDIO

On July 11, I spoke on the subject of how to share the preterist view. In that message I asked the question, “Is eschatology important?” Does it really matter what your view on the second coming is? Will it somehow impact your life? In answer to that question I gave four reasons why your view of eschatology matters. They were:

  1. Eschatology is a major theological issue in the Scriptures.
  2. Salvation is tied to eschatology.
  3. Israel!
  4. It affects your world view. Continue reading
