"church of christ" A-Millennial heresy!

"Kingdom" by fake evangelist and minister of Satan, Aaron Erhardt of the South End Church of the Anti-Christ. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbVBmV2M9W8

My reply: Wow....

Pre-Millennialism does NOT teach that "Jesus was a failure", you are lying about that. Pre-Millennialism simply teaches that John the Baptist (Matt. 3:2) Jesus Christ (Matt. 4:17, 10:7, Mark 1:15) and the 12 apostles of Israel (Acts 3:19-26) OFFERED the Kingdom of Heaven to Israel through "the gospel of the kingdom" and that it would be established "IF" they would receive it as Jesus said.

Malachi 4:
[1] For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
[2] But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
[3] And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
[4] Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
[5] Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
[6] And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse

Matthew 11:
[12] And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
[13] For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
[14] And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come

However, the Jews DID NOT RECEIVE it and so God did not give it to them. That does not make God a "failure", that makes the Jews a failure. Just like how John the Baptist came as a witness so that "that all men through him might believe" (John 1:7), but all men did not believe. Did that make John the Baptist a failure? Of course not. Just like Christ came "to seek and to save that which was lost" (Luke 19:10) but all the lost did not get saved. Did that make Christ a failure? According to Aaron Erhardt, yes. According to the Bible, no. 

Daniel's prophecies are about the LATTER DAYS (Dan. 2:28, 10:14) which are yet future, at the END OF THE WORLD at the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST (Matt. 24:3, 24:29-31) when the KING will gather and judge ALL NATIONS (Matt. 25:31-34). 

The reason Jesus said that the disciples would not die until they see the Kingdom come in Matt. 16:27-28, 24:34, Mark 8:38-9:1, 13:30, Luke 9:26-27, 21:32 is because at that time the Kingdom was at hand and it was being offered to Israel. Peter was even offering it in Acts 3...

Acts 3:
[19] Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
[20] And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
[21] Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
[22] For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
[23] And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
[24] Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
[25] Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
[26] Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Peter says that the promise (of the Kingdom/restitution of all things) was to the children of the prophets, of the covenant, (Jews) and that it would happen at the Second Coming of Christ (which is also when the believers of the Gospel of the Kingdom would have their sins blotted out--vs. 19).

The reason this did not happen was because God made known the mystery to Paul, that the Gentiles would be fellowheirs and of the Body of Christ (Eph. 3:1-9). Israel's Kingdom program which was according to Old Testament prophecy has been temporarily set aside for the "mystery" age of Grace (Eph. 3:1-9, Rom. 6:14, Col. 1:25-28, etc.)

Notice that Paul says Israel has been blinded temporarily until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in, BUT that God will resume His dealings with Israel and will establish His covenant with them in Zion...

Romans 11:
[25] For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
[26] And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
[27] For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins

(cross reference Acts 3:19-26)

That is why Christ said that they would not die till they saw the Kingdom, because at that time that was what was going to happen according to prophecy. The mystery age of Romans 11:25 and Ephesians 3:1-9 was not revealed to them. (note: they did see a glimpse of the Kingdom at the Mount of Transfiguration and the apostle John saw it all when he was taken into the future Day of the Lord to write the book of Revelation--Rev. 1:10).

You do know that Judas Iscariot died without seeing the Kingdom don't you?

Yes, saved people are in the Kingdom of God right now (Col. 1:13) because we have been baptized into Christ by the Holy Spirit (Col. 2:10-12, 1 Cor. 12:12-18) making us crucified, buried, risen, and seated with Christ in heavenly places (Rom. 6:3-4, Gal. 2:20, etc.).

Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

Ephesians 2:6-7 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

We are in the Kingdom of God because we are seated with Him in Heaven right now, but that has nothing to do with the Kingdom of Heaven that will come to the EARTH when the Lord will reign with a rod of iron over the nations. (the Kingdom of Heaven is defined as seeing God in the earth according to Matthew 5)

5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

Matthew 6:9-10
9) After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10) Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

The Kingdom was prophesied to be on the earth....

Isaiah 60:14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Zechariah 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
47:2 For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
47:7 For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
59:13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
66:4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
67:2-7 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
69:34-36 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein. For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession. The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
96:9-13 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
98:9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
110:1-7 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head

Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Job 19:25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

Notice that those living in the OT were expecting the Kingdom on the earth and were not looking forward to dying, they were looking to see God on earth....Isaiah 38:11 I said, I shall not see the LORD, even the LORD, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world.

You should also see Isaiah 2, Isaiah 11, Micah 4, Jeremiah 30-33, Ezekiel 36-37 and dozens of other places.

Jesus Himself said that the 12 apostles would be sitting on 12 thrones JUDGING THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL...."And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first." (Matt. 19:28-30)

Aaron Erhardt cites Luke 17 to 'prove' that the Kingdom is not going to be established on the earth....

Luke 17:
[20] 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:
[21] Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
[22] And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

Luke 17:20-21 does refer to the 'spiritual kingdom'' that believers enter into when they get saved and become seated with Christ in heaven (Eph. 2:6, Col. 1:13), as Romans 14:17 says "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." However, that is only ONE aspect of the Kingdom, the spiritual Kingdom that is currently in Heaven. That Kingdom you cannot see or observe in this life, BUT THAT IS NOT THE ONLY ASPECT OF THE KINGDOM. THE KINGDOM DOES HAVE A PHYSICAL ASPECT THAT CAN BE "SEEN" AND OBSERVED....

Luke 9:27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they SEE the kingdom of God.

Luke 21:31 So likewise ye, WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS COME TO PASS, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

We know there are two different aspects/versions of the Kingdom, or else Romans 14:17 and Luke 14:15 contradict!

Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Luke 14:15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.

John 18:36 DOES NOT SAY THAT THERE WILL NOT BE AN EARTHLY REIGN OF CHRIST (which would contradict so many other scriptures). All it says is that "NOW" is my Kingdom not from hence: "Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence." Modern perversions (NIV, ESV, etc.) omit the word "now" in order to teach the A-Millennial heresy. The King James Bible is the pure word of God in English.

How could the Kingdom be "spiritual" ONLY when Jesus said "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force." (Matthew 11:11-14). A spiritual Kingdom cannot suffer violence and it cannot be taken by violent people! 

Every honest Bible student knows that there is a such thing as a "post tribulation rapture" and that it is a rapture/resurrection of believing Jews to Jerusalem at the end of Daniel's 70th Week to reign with Christ on earth. If you are not familiar with this doctrine, see Ezekiel 11:16-20, 20:33-38, 28:25-26, 34:1-31, 36:16-38, 37:1-14, 37:21-28,  39:23-29, Jeremiah 23:1-8, 30:1-31:9, 31:31-34, 32:36-42, 33:1-18, 50:18-20, Isaiah 10:20-23, 14:1, 26:19, 27:12-13, 51:11, 54:5-9, Micah 2:12, Hos. 1:11, Zeph. 3:15-20, Psalms 50:5, 57:3, Daniel 12:1-2, Matthew 24:29-31, Mark 13:24-27, Luke 21:27-28, etc. Note: This is not a "post-trib pre-wrath" rapture as some teach, the believing Jews do go through the wrath of God (Zech. 7:12, Luke 21:23, Isa. 54:8, 57:17-23, 60:10, Ezek. 7:12, and Jer. 30:1-24, 32:37)

However, when we speak of a rapture happening BEFORE Daniel's 70th Week, "the Time of Jacob's Trouble", we are speaking of the rapture of the Church which is the Body of Christ of the mystery Dispensation of Grace (Eph. 3:1-9, Col. 1:24-27, Eph. 5:32, Rom. 11:25, etc.). This rapture/resurrection precedes the Day of Christ/Day of the Lord and it with holds the Man of Sin from being revealed (2 Thes. 2:1-7, 1 Thes. 1:10, 5:9, Rom. 5:9). The Church is in Heaven during the Day of Christ, not on the earth (2 Cor. 2:12-14, Phil. 3:20-21).

The rapture of 'Church Age' saints is a rapture of BELIEVERS (1 Thes. 4:14) that happens before the Day of the Lord (2 Thes. 2:1-8, 1 Thes. 1:10, 5:9, Rom. 5:9). That has nothing to do with lost people. This rapture was a "mystery" given to the apostle Paul "by the word of the Lord" (1 Thes. 4:15, 1 Cor. 15:51).

Then there is the first resurrection (of the Jews and those that have done good works--John 5:29) that occurs at the end of Daniel's 70th Week, then there is the 1,000 year Millennium, THEN there is a second resurrection of lost people that will be thrown into the Lake of Fire (second death)...

Revelation 20:
[4] And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
[5] But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
[6] Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years

[7] And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
[8] And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
[9] And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
[10] And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
[11] And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
[12] And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
[13] And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
[14] And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
[15] And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

A-Millennialism is a failure to take the Bible literally and it is utter foolishness.
