Teaching About Premillennialism? II

We began a study last week concerning the denominational teaching of premillennialism.  Hopefully our readers will refer back to last week's article for the definition of this theory of doctrine.  We suggested that the entire Bible would have to be over worked to have in any way such teaching as premillennialism!  A lack of Bible knowledge is evident in those who allow some to set dates for the second coming of Christ, and also follow without question the premillennial theory.  Since Christians were added to the kingdom in the First Century (Acts 2:41, Acts 2:47), we know that if we obey the same Gospel today we too will be added to the same kingdom today (Colossians 1:13-14).  Either Paul is wrong about the Colossian brethren being in the kingdom in the First Century or there is wrong in the theory of premillennialism.  The latter is true!  Remember also that God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit all said the kingdom was and is spiritual in nature, and not physical as premillennialism says (John 18:36)!  We urge all to truth the Bible, not man's theories.  Further, we will now show, that if premillennialism is a Bible based doctrine, there can be NO REDEMPTION IN CHRIST!  Why?  The reason why is because there would be NO NEW BIRTH, since JEsus said the new birth precedes our entrance into Christ's kingdom and redemption (John 3:3-5).  Again, if premillennialism is true, Jesus is NOT ON THE THRONE NOW AS OUR HIGH PRIEST, if He is NOT THE KING OF KINGS" now as prophesied (Zechariah 6:13,
I Timothy 6:14-15), but if there is no High Priest now, then there is no redemption and if Jesus is no High Priest, now making sacrifice for our sins, then He must of necessity also not be our King!  There would be no Lord's Supper now, because Jesus said He would not eat or drink of it until He did it new with them IN THE KINGDOM (Matthew 26:29, I Corinthians 11:26).  If this theory is true, IT REPLACES OUR HEAVENLY HOPE, with a false "rapture" hope!  This theory even REPLACES SPIRITUAL HOPE with a physical one and makes Heaven an afterthought!  Surely thinking people will agree that the consequences of this false doctrine are too much to swallow!
