I dont know how many people are aware but the Postmillennialism popularized by Rushdoony and reconstruction is actually much different than that which the Puritans held to. Postmillennialism today isnt really postmillennialism, its actually just an optimistic form of Amillennialism. Both believe the millennial rule of saints and binding of satan is an allagorical representation of the last days, ie NT era. "Puritan Postmillennialism" teaches that the millennium is a prolonged period of time where satans power in opposing the gospel is limmited and the gospel advances exponentially. The 1st resurrection is the beginning of the 1000yrs. The 2nd resurrection is the end of the millennium and the beginning of "Satans little season" when the saints will be martyred for their testimony again. Then comes Jesus and final judgment. I'm just wondering what other postmillennialists think of this. I prefer Rushdoony's model but its something im considering. I have more to post, but later.
