Item description for Thy Kingdom Come: Studies in Daniel and Revelation by Rousas John Rushdoony...
Overview First published in 1970, this book helped spur the modern rise of postmillennialism. Revelation's details are often perplexing, even baffling, and yet its main meaning is clear . it is a book about victory. It tells us that our faith can only result in victory. "This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith" (1 John 5:4). This is why knowing Revelation is so important. It assures us of our victory and celebrates it. Genesis 3 tells us of the fall of man into sin and death. Revelation gives us man's victory in Christ over sin and death. The vast and total victory, in time and eternity, set forth by John in Revelation is too important to bypass. This victory is celebrated in Daniel and elsewhere, in the entire Bible. We are not given a Messiah who is a loser. These eschatological texts make clear that the essential good news of the entire Bible is victory, total victory.

wake up and read of Christ's Kingdom then establish it! Feb 5, 2005
This book wakes up the faithful to the true gospel of Christ: Jesus Christ is King. He is not a fire and life insurance policy. Soul sleep is not biblical. It disparages the power and glory of God. God is life (not sleep) and of the living (not sleeping). (Matt.22:32) He has given us (the faithful) glorious life. Our service to Him never ends. By justification He has given us POWER to become children of God to LIVE by faith not "in hope of being raptured". He brings us to glory which starts at our regeneration. By the way Glory means ultimate weight, heaviness, mass. God is the ulimate heavy weight! The souls (not ghostly) of the faithful are reigning with Christ in glory and on earth. (John 12:26, II Tim 2:12, Rom. 5:17, Rev 20:6) They are in Paradise. (Communion with God) The regeneration of the entire creation is the aim of our Lord. The faithful are called to His service (Heb. 9:14, Rev. 5:10) to be accountable in obedience to His Law Word so that Jesus Christ will be made first in all things. Everywhere and everything that is established under Christ will reap wonderous blessings: freedom, economics, production, land, animals, health, .... This is what this book, step by step, preaches. Christ's victory is physical as well as spiritual. It is a Kingdom now and forever.
Chalcedon (RJ Rushdoony) has an excellent tape series on eschatology. It is like no other I have listened to or read. I have been testing it and have found his teaching to be godly, biblical, and intelligent.
Out of the frying pan into the fire Jun 10, 2004
While it is nice to someone admit that the LaHaye/Lindsey rapture cult is based on fantasy rather than the Bible, Rushdooney's dreams of a fundamentalist political state are actually worse. The worse that we can expect from Left Behinders is a massive glut of bad fiction and bad Bible studies. The Rushdooney crowd wants to force us all into their fantasy whether we like it or not. The Kingdom of God is a spiritual communion, not a theocratic police state.
Our call is to victory, not loss Mar 26, 2002
"Thy Kingdom Come" is a wonderful treatise on the call to arms, and that call is not one destined in loss. As Joshua was promised victory in Canaan in the fulfillment of his commission to take the Promised Land, so too we are promised victory in the world in the fulfillment of the Great Commission to create disciples of the nations. We are not told to "give it a try and I'll come back for you when it's too tough," rather "Go, ye therefore (as all power is given unto Jesus) and make disciples of the nations."
Is God's arm too short that He cannot make the mission successful? "Thy Kingdom Come" should serve to harden our wills toward His.
