Will the Kingdom Be Postponed Again?

Will the Kingdom Be Postponed…Again? Don K. Preston D. Div Anyone familiar with dispensationalism knows that the one of the pillars of that theology is the claim that Jesus came to establish the kingdom and that he truly offered the kingdom to Israel.

It was considered the center of the earth.1 It is interesting however to consider that during the entire period of the judges, and for the entire 40 year period of Saul’s reign, the city of Jerusalem was actually considered to be an enemy city avoided by and hated…

Several basic premises still appear to be unknown to Bible students about the epistle to the Hebrews (such as author, place of origin, etc.; this scribe believes there may be an argument for Apollos’ being the author as there is an argument for Paul), but this should not deter readers from seeing the encouragement and promises found in this letter.…

Determinism and Postponement

The millennial doctrine is so full of self contradictions, logical fallacies, and violations of scripture that it is a confusing maze. Having studied millennialism extensively for almost 30 years, and engaged in numerous private and public debates on the issue has given me insights into this doctrine that deeply trouble me.
