Middleism" was created with tongue in cheek. Its purpose is to separate it from Dispensational teaching and Partial Preterism.
- It is based on the late date of Revelation authorship.
- The Olivet and Revelation are of two different "ages".
- There is no promise of a Second Coming found in the Gospels.
- It is the Classical Historical Premillennial Return of Christ as held by the Early Church Fathers.
We affirm the Bible was written for the church, for all Generations, until He comes.
The prolific idea for many Christians is that Mathew 24, The
Olivet Discourse is a promise of the Second Coming of Christ.
When the passage is examined the phrase "son of man Coming on
Clouds" is not about a Christ coming down but in His ascension He
sits at the right hand of the Father and executes Judgment on that
generation who not only rejected him, but also killed him on the
Cross. This view is held by many scholars but as yet has never been
translated to the pulpits of America. With this view held in mind,
the chronology of the last days is made easy to understand as it
should have been from the very beginning and was by the Early Church
Fathers. I am not creating a new Eschatology but returning to
the very beginning.
