Old Testament Kingdom Prophecies Listed

Here is a full, though not quite exhaustive, list of Old Testament Kingdom Prophecies (OTKP’s). Amillennarians define OTKP as any OT prophecy fulfilled on or after the Day of Pentecost, when the first stage of the (two-staged) Kingdom of God began with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. As opposed to “simple” OT Messianic prophecies, which were fulfilled in the life of Christ prior to Pentecost, OTKP’s cannot be interpreted literally, but must be interpreted through a skillful use of the New Covenant Hermeneutic (NCH). That is, they must be interpreted:

  • Covenantally: As being fulfilled under the New/Eternal Covenant, and as referring to the several elements of that
  • Christologically: As being fulfilled in the Person and Work of Christ
  • Typologically: As using OT ideas and images to convey NT
  • Ecclesiologically: As being fulfilled among God’s New Covenant people, the Church, which is comprised both of Jew and Gentile
  • Eschatologically: As being fulfilled in the last days, which are the days in which the New Covenant has been made manifest; as being fulfilled either in the first stage of the Kingdom (the Kingdom of the Son), the second stage of the Kingdom (the Kingdom of the Father), or both.

Our hope and prayer are that as you apply the New Covenant Hermeneutic to these beautiful OT prophecies, the Holy Spirit will enable you to understand and delight in them, and also to use them mightily for the advance of Christ’s Kingdom.
