The Premillennial Faith is that the Coming of Christ at the end of this Gospel Age is to be followed by His visible reign over the nations of the world, before the final resurrection of the wicked and the creation of new heavens and earth This, we believe, is what John clearly teaches in chapters nineteen to twenty-one of the Apocalypse. To believe this is not to commit oneself to the idea that the Cross was unnecessary, or that it was second-best to a proffered kingdom. Nor is it to believe that the Church was an afterthought, a mere parenthetical innovation. All such propositions we utterly reject. We must confine ourselves to a discussion of leading ideas and points of difference.
