Kingdom Eschatology

Kingdom Eschatology.

Kingdom Eschatology is the view that almost all Biblical prophecy is past (excluding the The Second Coming, The Resurrection and The Judgment).

Kingdom Eschatology refers to that wide spectrum of thought which is not fully Futurist, but which incorporates some portion of what the Futurist view has to offer. Some, but not all, prophecies were fulfilled in the destruction of the Jewish nation in A.D. 70. The "big three" prophecies are yet future - the Great Judgment, Resurrection and Second Coming of Christ.

These events are yet future:

Complete Preterism is "2. (Theol.) One who believes the prophecies of the Apocalypse to have been already fulfilled. --Farrar."

Full Preterists do not believe in a rapture to come, whereas Kingdom Eschatologists do believe in a rapture. Both parties agree that Matthew 24 was totally fulfilled, though. The scriptures in Matthew 24 that have been taken to speak about the rapture are misapplied references to the rapture. The true rapture references are in 1 Corinthians 15, and other places.

Kingdom Eschatology states that some of the references to the coming of the Son of Man do not refer to the rapture, but rather to a judgment that occurred in 70 AD.

Kingdom Eschatologists believe the following verses literally:

Matthew 16:27-28 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
Jesus' wrath came in their day, their generation. It was a monumental event for the City of Jerusalem to be destroyed, as you read in the latter part of Matthew 23, for they crucified Him in ultimate unbelief. As the cross is central to the entire Bible, the Jerusalem rejection of Christ through crucifying Him, was the greatest evil accomplished, thus giving credence to the view that the great amount of prophetic scriptures deal with the destruction of Jerusalem yet to come in 70 AD.

As opposed to a visible temple and physical Kingdom, His Kingdom is invisible and is in you. And it came at Pentecost, but was confirmed as God's only concern in 70 AD.

Luke 17:20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
It will be made manifest to all the souls of humanity after He returns.

Generally speaking, Kingdom Eschatology denies dispensationalism. It teaches that there are only two covenants of God's concern. Old Testament and New Testament. Kingdom Eschatologists note that the New Testament refers to no other divisions besides Old Testament and New Testament.

We propose that the entire 70 weeks of Daniel, as per Daniel 9:24-27, have been totally fulfilled in uninterrupted sequence. There is no gap between the 69th and 70th weeks.

(That means that there is no future tribulation period of seven years or 3.5 years.)

The cross of Christ fulfilled all of the purposes that God listed in decreeing the purposes of the 70 weeks, as per Daniel 9:24.

Everyone, Jew or gentile, must come in through Acts 2:38, and that there will never be another way, nor a reinstatement of the law of Moses. Nothing but the blood of Jesus will save a soul for ever.
