Is a great world conflict coming called the Battle of Armageddon? Futurist prophecy preachers have made a lot of hay out of Revelation 16:16 which speaks of the forces of evil being gathered at Armageddon to do battle. Is this a prophecy of a yet future carnal conflict in the Middle East site of Megiddo or something else being pictured as the revelation of Jesus Christ unfolds before John's eyes? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at how a literal interpretation of The Battle of Armageddon fits into the traditional view of dispensational premillennialism and we offer an alternative view of what this conflict was and what it represented to the early church who originally received the revelation.
Jesus is coming again but is He coming to rule on earth for 1,000 years? The doctrine of Dispensational Premillennialism is one of the most widely and zealously spread doctrines in religion today. It predicts that Christians will be raptured to heaven before a dark tribulation befalls the earth. After seven years, it is claimed that the Battle of Armegeddon will be fought in the Middle East and the victorious Jesus will come to Jerusalem, set up His kingdom and rule over the earth for a millennium. We are thus living in the church age and supposedly waiting for the kingdom age. But does this popular doctrine square with Christ's teaching about His own kingdom? Today's sermon at Let The Bible Speak continues our series on the kingdom. We hope you'll take half an hour to watch, then share it with others.
