The kingdom dispensation, the millenial view of dispensationalism, is pictured on the timeline below:



The following observations and scriptural references reflect seven biblical difficulties with the premillennial interpretation of eschatology.

1.Premillennial explanations picture God's kingdom as being physical and national, while Scripture testifies of it as spiritual and worldwide. The New Testament speaks of the following Old Testament prophetical terms as receiving symbolic and spiritual fulfillments, not literal and physical ones -the seed of Abraham (John 8:37), Jews (Romans 2:28-29), tabernacle of David (Acts 15:14-17), priesthood (I Peter 2:9-10), kingdom (Luke 17:20-21), and Jerusalem (Revelation 21:10).

I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill Me, because My Word hath no place in you.

-John 8:37

And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.

-Revelation 21 :20

The spirituality of Christ's kingdom is emphasized when answering the following question. When viewing Christ's kingdom, how is its origin, realm, emphasis, means of government, citizenship, boundaries, throne, birth, and language all spiritual? (For assistance in answering, refer back to Chapter 11: "Christ's Work as King.")
