First published in 1970, Thy Kingdom Come helped spur the modern rise of postmillennialism. Genesis 3 describes the fall of man into sin and death. Revelation counters that with man’s victory in Christ over sin and death, and though the details of Revelation are perplexing, even baffling at times, it’s meaning is clear: it is a book about victory.
The vast and total victory, in time and eternity, set forth by John in Revelation is too important to bypass. We were not following a defeated Messiah, but rather a victorious king. These eschatological texts make it clear that the essential good news of the entire Bible is victory—total victory. Rushdoony examines the nature of our victorious inheritance in this light, challenging and encouraging believers in their faith.
