Commentary on Revelation chapters 4-7, based on commentaries published prior to 1995. Discusses the vision of the heavenly throne room and the first six seals, including the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the 144,000, and the great multitude.
Christians have different views of the millennium of Revelation 20. Some believe it is occurring now; some believe it will occur before Christ returns, and some believe it will happen after he returns. Equally sincere, equally Bible-believing Christians disagree. Is it necessary for us to disagree? What do we have in common?
In these articles, Paul Kroll examines whether the seventh-day Sabbath is a valid law for Christians. Since the only commands for the Sabbath are in the laws of Moses, he begins by exploring whether the Law of Moses has authority over Christians. It does not; Christians are to obey God based on the new covenant, not the old. Kroll then explores auxiliary questions about Genesis, Hebrews and Jesus.
In this lay-level commentary, Paul Kroll explores the book of Revelation, also known as the Apocalypse. A series of introductory articles explore the nature of this kind of writing, and its purpose. Some commentators have turned Revelation into an outline of history, when that is not its purpose. The commentary then turns to chapters 1-3, including the seven letters to the seven churches.
If God is all-powerful and all-loving, why doesn't he do something about the pain and sorrow being experienced by the people he supposedly loves? How can he wipe hundreds of thousands of people out in earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and famines? Why doesn't he stop war, terrorism, and child abuse? Why doesn't he do something about the evil that lurks in the hearts of all of us? Well, he has.
