Christ’s Second Coming: Will It Be Premillennial?


In Christ’s Second Coming, Brown defines premillennialism as a theory that advocates that Christ will soon come, not to carry on in person and in power the work of converting and saving men, but to close the dispensation of grace and introduce an eternal state of retribution. Instead, Brown advocates the theory that there will be—before Christ’s coming—an estimated thousand years when the Gospel will spread in power among men, and grace will be victorious over the whole earth.
