“And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them’”. (Revelation 21:3, NASB) Ever since the ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven, Christians have hoped in His Second Coming or parousia. They have agreed that those in Christ who have died will be raised, and also all believers who are still alive will be caught up to be with Him and enjoy eternal existence in God’s presence.

Postmillennialists point to a couple of references in the Bible that they appeal to for their position regarding the Millennium. In Matthew 13:31-34 Jesus presents two parables about the kingdom of heaven. First, He compares it to a small grain of mustard seed that is sown in the field, but then it grows into a tree. The second parable in this Scripture portion is the comparison of the kingdom of heaven to a woman who hides flour and it leavens. According to postmillennialism, both of these parables indicate the influence and growth of the kingdom in the world. Postmillennialists believe that society will increasingly function according to God’s standards because of its Christian influence. They suggest that ...
