A podcast on the church for the church hosted by Kirk E. Miller, et al. through the ministry of CrossWay Community Church in Milwaukee, WI.
The Seal Judgments & God's Sealed People (Revelation 6:1-8:1)
In this episode, Kirk and Dan quickly survey and review the seal judgments of chapters 6-7. Then they spend the bulk of the episode answering the question, "Who are the 144,000 from chapter 7:1-8?" arguing that they are symbolic of the church in 7:9ff.
On Reading Christian Books, Part 2
Kirk, Sam, and Matt continue their conversation on reading now by discussing, who or what should we read (selecting books)? And, how should we go about reading (practical tips)?
On Reading Christian Books, Part 1
In this next set of episodes, I'm so pleased to have Sam Park and Matt Dohrmann join me for the podcast. Sam and Matt are both members of CrossWay Community Church where I serve. And in this episode we sit down to talk about the habit of reading good books, specifically, why is it important to be reading books?
The Lion is a Lamb (Revelation 5:1-14)
Kirk and Dan sit down to talk about some interpretive reminders as we approach the book of Revelation, and then take a look at Revelation 5:1-14 through the lens of various theological categories.
The Heavenly Throne Room (Revelation 4:1-11)
In this episode, Kirk and Dan discuss some additional matters related to the interpretation of Revelation 4. How should we understand the phrase "after this" used twice in verse 1, and what are some of the theological debates / discussions surrounding this phrase? Second, we take a closer look at the twenty elders and the four living creatures. Who or what might they be, and what role do they serve in this passage? Next, we consider briefly the theme of worship across the book. Who do you worship — God or the beast? And lastly, we consider the theme of heaven as God's very temple, and how this reaches its climax in chapters 21-22.
To the Church in Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22)
In this episode, Kirk and Dan look at the final message to the seven churches, the message to Laodicea. They discuss the nature of the Laodicean's sin and how we might fight its temptations through the promises of Christ.
