The Premillennialist’s Response

 Premillennialism does have some understanding of the resurrection and ascension. The premillennialist expects the good times to come to earth when Christ returns bodily to overcome the weakness of the Church in history. What premillennialism ignores is the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. It also denies the doctrine of God's irresistible grace. What the premillennialist ignores is the question of the two angels to the witnesses of Christ’s ascension: “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven... ?” (Acts 1:11a). Then the witnesses returned to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit. But premillennialists are still standing around culturally, gazing in hope at heaven. *1 In the meantime, their pockets are being picked by the humanists. “Just keep on looking up,” the humanists tell them. “Let us know if you see something.” (pp.256-257)
