    If any of you have paid attention to my posts, you've noticed that I'm studying out a few different things of theolggy as it relates to end times. One of the trends I seem to be noticing is the tendancy of Covenant Theologists to lean toward amillenialism. Is this true in your eyes? Is it a necessary interpretation of scripture, based on Covenant Theology?

    Also, could someone explain if all amillenialsists would say there will be no 1000 year literal reign?

    Thanks
    Michael

    Good perception. Some would be a-mill and some just post-mill. Why?

    Many believe that we are in the "kingdom era" at the present time. It is an era when Christ is ruling and controling affairs of this world, bringing His own to Himself through the Church. There will be no 1000 years per se, but an indeterminate era until the day of final judgment and a new heaven and new earth.

    Michael:

    You are spending a lot of time asking about covenant theology and amillennialism on a board which is about 95% dispensational and pretrib premill; probably not the best source to ask questions.

    If you want to know about CT and amil, I suggest rummaging around the plethora of material at The Protestant Reformed Church in America Website

    If you want to know about covenant theology and postmill, begin by rummaging around Credenda Agenda

    I might be in the 5%. [​IMG]

    Yes, I think Covenant Theologians tend toward the amellenial view. I certainly hold that view. As for it being a necessary interpretation of scripture - hard one to answer -- probably not necessary but it does seem to be the correct interpretation to me.

    I can only speak for myself, and my perceptions of what others of my faith believe (Primitive Baptists). We would (all that I know anyway be considered amillenialsists and would say there will be no 1000 year literal reign.

    Hope it helps.

    In Revelation 20-- five times the Lord speaking through the Apostle John refers to the 1,000 year reign of Christ. If God told us about this time period only once we should believe Him and the reality of His exacting words.

    Respectfully,
