What is Millennialism? (Part 2/3 – A-Millennialism)
Articles


Next up: A-millennialism. The “A” in Amillennialism means NO. Therefore the 1,000 years is a
symbolic number and expresses the time in between the first and second comings of Christ. Thus there is NO separate and distinct era
or period of 1,000 years. This is historically the
viewpoint of the Catholic, Presbyterian and Lutheran churches. The Southern Baptist
Convention has adopted some of the Amillennial viewpoints because Calvin’s teaching adopts
some elements of Amillennialism. And the idea is that the Kingdom of God on
earth that is to occur during the Millennium is
present on earth now, even though it is currently invisible. Further this doctrine states that all the
promises of God to David, Abraham, and to Israel have
already been fulfilled by Christ, and thus are given over to the Church in this present
age. This, of course, is called classic Replacement Theology. The church has replaced Israel. Further, this doctrine states that Satan is
currently bound up, that the Kingdom of God is already
established, and Satan is no longer free to deceive nations or people. Thus at the end of our present age (usually
called the Church Age), Christ returns in judgment,
and immediately a new heaven and earth replace the old heaven and earth. Satan is unbound
just before Christ returns, there is an unprecedented time of evil worldwide, and then at Christ’s
2nd coming all evil is destroyed once and for all. In addition to Calvin, Amillennialism’s
main advocates are RC Sproul, J.I. Packer, and Mike
Horton.
