Postmillennialism Is Unbiblical

I. Postmillennialism is the belief that the Second Coming of Christ will come after the millennium.
1. This belief is summed up by the following:
2. There is an increase in the spread of God's rule in every area of life through the preaching of the gospel which ushers in a millennium of peace and justice.
3. Through the reforming effects of the gospel on men, Christ will return to an almost fully Christian world at the end of the millennium.
4. Some postmillennialists believe that the world will be reformed by bottom-up grassroots efforts of changing the hearts and minds of people.
5. Postmillennialists who subscribe to Christian Reconstructionism or Dominion Theology believe that the millennium will be commenced by a top-down approach in which Christian legal and political institutions will be set up. (This type of authoritarian pseudo theocracy would likely usher in the tribulation, rather than an age of peace and prosperity.)
II. The errors of Postmillennialism.
1. Error #1: There will be universal preaching and acceptance of the Gospel, and a complete and total victory of the kingdom of God over the forces of Satan and unbelief.
A. Jesus taught that there are few that will ever be on the way which leads to life and many on the way which leads to destruction.
i. Mat 7:13 - Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
ii. Mat 7:14 - Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
B. The parable of the sower, which is an illustration of preaching the gospel, shows that only one out of the four groups of people that are preached to ever bring forth fruit (Luk 8:11-15).
C. The elect are called a remnant.
i. Rom 11:5 - Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
ii. Remnant n. - That which remains or is left of a thing or things after the removal of a portion; the remainder, rest, residue. Now applied only to a small remaining part.
D. Jesus said the kingdom is given to a little flock.
i. Luk 12:32 - Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
2. Error #2: Christ will return to an almost entirely Christianized world.
A. Jesus asked rhetorically that when He returns, will He find faith on the earth?
i. Luk 18:8 - I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
ii. The obvious implication is that faith on earth will be negligible when He returns.
B. Jesus said His Second Coming would be as the days of Noah, at which time there were only eight righteous people on the earth which was filled with violence (Gen 6:11).
i. Mat 24:37 - But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
C. Jesus said His Second Coming would be as in the days of Lot at which time Lot was living in a city full of vile sinners.
i. Luk 17:28 - Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
ii. Luk 17:29 - But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
iii. Luk 17:30 - Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
D. In the latter times, rather than embracing the faith in droves, people will be departing from the faith.
i. 1Ti 4:1 - Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
E. The last days are described as perilous times where sin abounds, not times of peace and righteousness.
i. 2Ti 3:1 - This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
ii. 2Ti 3:2 - For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
iii. 2Ti 3:3 - Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
iv. 2Ti 3:4 - Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
v. 2Ti 3:5 - Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
F. Rather than growing more virtuous as time goes on, evil men will wax worse and worse as we come to the end.
i. 2Ti 3:13 - But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
G. The day of Christ will not be preceded by a great awakening and revival, but a falling away.
i. 2Th 2:1 - Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
ii. 2Th 2:2 - That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
iii. 2Th 2:3 - Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
