POSTMILLENNIALISM AND PROTESTANTISM.
"There will come a time when in this world holiness shall be more general, and more eminent, than ever it hath been since Adam fell in paradise.—Thomas Brooks, The Crown and Glory of Christianity. (1662).
1883-Robert Wilson Patterson (1814-1894).-An article from the Presbyterian Review explaining why Premillennialism is not Biblical and also rejecting Praeterism. This article also articulates an eschatological hope compatible with Postmillennialism.
1918-Benjamin B. Warfield (1851-1921).-A masterful essay which explains why it is wrong to conclude from a few passages taken out of context that the final number of the saved will be meagre in comparison to the number of the lost.
1820-James Renwick Willson.-An excellent presentation of the doctrine of the Mediatorial reign of Christ and its implications for all nations and kingdoms. This is the Covenanter postmillennial vision.
1814-Alexander McLeod.-An exposition of the first thirteen chapters of the Book of Revelation with an emphasis on Covenanter distinctives.
1825-James Renwick Willson.-A sermon advocating an optimistic future for the church on earth and a call not to fret but to remain faithful is bearing testimony to the truth not compromising with error. In the end, the church will be victorious and the earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord.
1835-Samuel Miller.-A missionary sermon which is both description and prescriptive about the task of the church in evangelizing and the glory that will be its future. This is a sermon brimming with the kind of optimism that only the postmillennial vision can convey.
1870-David Steele.-A commentary on the entire book of Revelation from an historicist and postmillennial perspective incorporating the insights of Covenanting principles and a concern for the standards of the Reformed Presbyterian church.
