Kingdom Victory

Kingdom Victory
Robert and Steve Horne



This blog is placed here to set forth the main tenants of postmillenialism eschatology. This understanding of eschatology sees victory in all aspects of the Christian faith. It is not a radical position but a historical one being around for thousands of years within the kingdom of God.


There have been 3 positions which have have been accepted throughout church history: Postmillennialism, Amillennialism and Premillennialism. I therefore graciously give latitude to those who hold any of these positions.

My prayer is that the crown of Christ be glorified as the eternal kingdom of God advances.

For more on Postmil exchatology go to my brother Robert’s new blogsite http://kingdomvictory.blogspot.com/ . I am sure you will gain understanding and be blessed in the positive aspects of the work of Christ our King in his world and in the Church.



THE MAIN TENETS OF POSTMILLENNIALISM
.

The main tenets of postmillennialism have been defined as follows:
.

1. Through the preaching of the gospel Christian missions and evangelism will attain remarkable success, and the church will enjoy an unprecedented period of numerical expansion and spiritual vitality.
.

2. This period of spiritual prosperity, the millennium, understood as a long period of time, is to be characterized by conditions of increasing peace and economic well-being in the world as a result of the growing influence of Christian truth.
.

3. The millennium will also be characterized by the conversion of large numbers of ethnic Jews to the Christian faith (Romans 11:25-26).
.

4. At the end of the millennial period there will be a brief period apostasy and sharp conflict between Christian and evil forces (Rev. 20:7-10).
.

5. Finally, and simultaneously there will occur the visible return of Christ, the resurrection of the righteous and the wicked, the final judgment, and the revelation of the new heavens and the new earth.
