    (#29) Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost, onetime President of Dallas Theological Seminary and well known dispensational teacher, writes: It is taught in Scripture that the kingdom over which Christ is to rule between the first and the second resurrection is of one thousand years duration (Rev. 20: 1-6). Things to Come, (Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, MI; 1964), p. 490. (PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR # 30).

      DISCUSSION

     

    Using Revelation 20: 1-6, Dr. Pentecost teaches that there will be two bodily resurrections, one at the commencement of the thousand years and the other at the end of the thousand years. 

     

    Do the Scriptures teach more than one bodily resurrection?

     

    Is the language of Revelation 20 purely literal or is it made up of both literal and symbolic language?

     

     

    The following Scriptures will show what the prophet Daniel, and the apostles John and Paul wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

     

    The Scriptures will be taken from the Authorized King James Version and the New International Version.

     

    And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt (Dan. 12: 2, AKJV). 

     

    Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake; some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt (Dan. 12: 2, NIV).

     

     

    Marvel not at this; for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5: 28-29, AKJV). 

     

    Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out – those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned (John 5: 28-29, NIV).

     

     

     And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust (Acts 24: 15, AKJV). 

     

    … and I have the same hope in God as these men, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked (Acts 24: 15; NIV).

     

     

     

                            SCRIPTURAL CONCLUSION

     

    The preceding Scriptures show beyond a reasonable doubt that there will be only one bodily resurrection involving both the righteous and the unrighteous. 

     

    In view of Biblical information of one day of judgment for the whole world (Acts 17: 31; 2 Tim. 4: 1) and one future bodily resurrection of all the dead, righteous and unrighteous (Daniel 12: 2; John 5: 28-29; Acts 24: 15), we conclude that the language of Revelation 20 is not purely literal. The thousand years (Rev. 20: 1-7) are symbolic and cover an extended period of time. They are in progress now.

     

    The first resurrection (Rev. 20: 5) is a spiritual resurrection and includes all born again believers (John 5: 24). Dead believers are with Christ (Phil. 1: 23) and living believers are raised with Christ (Col. 3: 1, 3). 

     

    Christ is now reigning (1 Cor. 15: 25) and dead and living believers are reigning with Him.

     

    The thousand years began when Jesus ascended to heaven and they will end at his second coming when he will judge the living and the dead (2 Tim. 4: 1). At that time, he will destroy death, the last enemy (1 Cor. 15: 26). 

    The teaching of Dr. Pentecost is not scriptural.

    Many authors, denominations and Bible Colleges teach a millennial kingdom following the judgment at the Second Coming in which people will have children and carry out the routines of life in which we are engaged at the present time.

          

    If all believers, dead and living, put on immortality at the appearing of Jesus, at the last day, at the last trumpet, at the end of the age (John 6: 39 – 40; 1 Cor. 15: 50-54; Luke 20: 34 – 36; Phil. 3: 20 – 21; 1 Thess. 4: 16 - 17) and all unbelievers are punished with everlasting destruction (2 Thess. 1: 6-10), from where will people come in natural (physical) bodies to go into a millennium and have children?

     

     

    Some teach that after the Day of Judgment the earth will be desolate for a thousand years. But the Scripture teaches that this present heaven and earth will be burned up on the Day of Judgment and God will create a new heaven and a new earth (2 Peter 3: 7-13).       

              

    The doctrine of a millennium after the judgment at the Second Coming is not supported by Scripture.

    (#3) Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost, onetime President of Dallas Theological Seminary, writes: The church is manifestly an interruption of God’s program for Israel, which was not brought into being until Israel’s rejection of the offer of the Kingdom. … This program must be concluded before God resumes and culminates His program for Israel. This mystery concept of the church makes a pretribulation rapture a necessity. Things to Come, Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, MI; 1964), p.201. (PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR #4).

     

     

     

                                          DISCUSSION

     

    What is the rapture? The rapture is the "gathering of believers" or "the catching up of believers" to meet the Lord in the air. The word rapture is derived from the Latin verb "rapio" meaning to be caught up or to be gathered and is used in the Latin Bible to translate the phrase "will be caught up" (1 Thess. 4: 17) and "our being gathered" (2 Thess. 2: 1) from the English Bible. 

     When will the church be raptured? 

     

    Jim McKeever writes: Thus far we have seen that there is Biblical evidence for a Rapture, but that the Rapture will most probably take place at the end of the Tribulation – in fact on the last day of the Tribulation, which is also the last day of this present age.  Christians Will Go Through the Tribulation, Alpha Omega Publishing Company, Medford, 1978), p. 55.

     

    We observe that there are conflicting views. What does the Bible teach?

     

    Jesus taught that the resurrection and the rapture will take place at the last day, at the end of the age, on the day of judgment (John 6: 39-40; Luke 20: 34-36; Matt. 11: 23-24; Luke 10: 15). Therefore the Church will go through the Tribulation

     

    The apostle Paul taught that the resurrection, transformation and the rapture will take place at the last trumpet after the Antichrist is revealed  ( 1 Cor. 15: 50-54; 2 Thess. 2: 1-3). Therefore the Church will go through the Tribulation.

     

    The apostle Peter taught that the rapture will take place on the day of judgment, the day of the Lord (2 Pet. 3: 3-13). Therefore the Church will go through the Tribulation.

     

    The apostle John taught that the resurrection and judgment will take place at the end of the Tribulation, when the seventh angel sounds his trumpet (Rev. 11: 15-18). Therefore the Church will go through the Tribulation.

     

    The prophet Daniel taught that the Church will go through the Tribulation (Dan. 7: 24-27).

     

    Jesus taught that he will be with his disciples (the church) until the end of the age (Matt. 28: 20). Therefore the church will go through the Tribulation.

     

    The rapture cannot take place before the resurrection of the dead in Christ takes place. Please allow the following Scriptures to speak to you.

     

    And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day (John 6: 39-40).

     

    Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed (1 Cor. 15: 51-52).

     

    The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection (Luke 20: 34-36).

     

     

     

     

    SCRIPTURAL CONCLUSION

     

    The Scriptures show beyond a reasonable doubt that the Church will go through the Tribulation, therefore making the teaching of Dr. Pentecost and Dispensational Premillennialists unscriptural. 

    The rapture will take place at the end of the Tribulation at the second coming of Christ. It will take place at the last day, at the last trumpet, at the end of the age.

    Many authors, denominations and Bible Colleges teach a millennial kingdom following the judgment at the Second Coming in which people will have children and carry out the routines of life in which we are engaged at the present time.

          

    If all believers, dead and living, put on immortality at the appearing of Jesus, at the last day, at the last trumpet, at the end of the age (John 6: 39 – 40; 1 Cor. 15: 50-54; Luke 20: 34 – 36; Phil. 3: 20 – 21; 1 Thess. 4: 16 - 17) and all unbelievers are punished with everlasting destruction (2 Thess. 1: 6-10), from where will people come in natural (physical) bodies to go into a millennium and have children?

     

     

    Some teach that after the Day of Judgment the earth will be desolate for a thousand years. But the Scripture teaches that this present heaven and earth will be burned up on the Day of Judgment and God will create a new heaven and a new earth (2 Peter 3: 7-13).
