Atheists...if any are lurking, join and defend your position on why God doesn't exist.  Agnostics you too...isn't it time to get off the fence and take a side? ;D

Premillennialism

Donnie, do you believe in Premillennialism?  I thought you said you did a while back but I could be wrong.

Just saw this post a week after you made it.  Sorry.

I lean pre-millennial regarding the Rapture of the Church, however, I think it prudent to be prepared in case we have to go through the Tribulation.  But as to whether Jesus will physically return before the Millennial Kingdom, He has to because He shortens the days of the Tribulation otherwise no flesh would survive...meaning He returns and establishes His 1000 year reign.  Basically, He descends from Heaven and ends the Battle of Armageddon destroying all who oppose Him with the Brightness of His Coming.  The Antichrist and his False Prophet are cast into the Lake of Fire and Satan is bound for the duration of the Millennial Kingdom only to be released again tempting the nations to rebel against Jesus one last time. 

What is your take?

Wow, ok I think I was thinking it had to do with the existence of the State of Israel as well.  I saw a comment on Twitter from a person who said she heard someone talk about some Christians who thought the existence of Israel was a political necessity to precipitate the Coming of Christ, but that she had never heard of any Christians who believed such a theory.  I immediately thought of you because I thought you had made such a comment at some point years ago.  I thought this fit into "premillennialism", but I could be wrong.

It does make me wonder how the belief by Christians in the theological necessity of Israel's existence has influenced strong Western support for Israel.  In fact, I recall that George W. Bush was possibly in this theological camp?

Israel had to be re-established in order for the prophetic timeline to commence.  Israel becoming a nation again in 1948 fulfilled the Valley of Dry Bones in Ezekiel Chapter 37.  Then, during the 7 Year Tribulation, Israel is surrounded by its enemies which is called the time of Jacob's Trouble.

A great website for understanding prophetic timelines is http://www.thepropheticyears.com.  I pretty much agree with the website owner's views on this topic.
