Revelation: Prophetic Addresses to the Seven Churches by Larry W. Cockerham
Originally published in 1995 this work focuses primarily on the seven churches of Revelation. These letters describe the conditions that existed during the time of John’s writing and were local assemblies located in Asia Minor. The letters reveal their representative nature as well as seven periods or ages existing from Pentecost till the end of the church era. The association or parallelism between the seven churches and the seven parables of Matthew 13 plus the mysteries of the Bible are compared.
Chapters concerning the long-awaited rapture of the church, the judgment seat of Christ and the marriage supper of the Lamb is explored. From there the church journeys to its final destination, the celestial city of the New Jerusalem.
