Last Things & The Kingdom of God
WE TEACH the amillennial view of last things, in which the "millennium," as spoken of in Scripture, is symbolic of period between Pentecost and the second coming of Jesus. Since his ascension, Jesus has ruled physically in heaven and spiritually over the lives of believers through the Holy Spirit, which resides in the hearts of all believers (Luke 17:20-21; Romans 14:17; 1 Corinthians 4:20, 15:50). We affirm the bodily, physical return of Jesus at some point in the future (Matthew 16:27; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 1:7, 22:7, 12, 20). At that time will establish his throne upon the earth and all things will be made new - a new heaven and new earth (Isaiah 65:17; Daniel 2:44; Zechariah 14:9; Revelation 21:1-5)!
