A Course of Lectures, on the Prophecies That Remain to Be Fulfilled, Vol. 2 - Elhanan Winchester

Excerpt from A Course of Lectures, on the Prophecies That Remain to Be Fulfilled, Vol. 2: Delivered in the Borough of Southwark, as Also, at the Chapel in Glasshouse-Yard, in the Year 1789

Some hold the thousand years to be only a time of great increase of the church and interest of Christ in the world; of great spiritual blessing to mankind; but that we are not to look for any glorious temporal kingdom of Christ in the world, any further than that his gospel shall spread through the earth, &c. But none of there carry the idea of spiritual blemngs higher than you will find them in the following Lectures, and generally not so high: So that we have all the advantages in this scheme of those who hold the Millenium only as a spiritual reign of Christ in the hearts of men, and many besides, which are wanting in all their systems. There are others, who in addition to the former, allow that there shall be a thousand years of outward peace, health, and plenty, during which time the systems of governments in all nations shall be just and equal, and that oppression, fraud, and other like crimes, shall be banished from the earth; that many more shall be born, during that period, than ever have yet been since time began: But they deny what we think the Scripture affirms, that Christ with his faints will personally appear to reign on the earth during that time, and to accomplish these great purposes.
