Front Cover
Cosimo, Inc., Mar 1, 2007 - Religion - 536 pages
Originally published in three volumes from 1870 to 1884, J.A. Seiss's lectures on the Apocalypse were among the first popular works based upon the futurist interpretation of Revelation. Considered by modern evangelical scholars to be among the most influential, the collected lectures have been called "a monumental work," "thoroughly scholarly and spiritual," and "the highest type of scholarship." For Bible students, teachers, and Christians of all types, this is the work to turn to for understandable, in-depth explanations of the most intriguing book of the Bible.American Lutheran pastor JOSEPH AUGUST SEISS (1823-1904) was born in Maryland and served congregations in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. In addition to his translations of hymns from the original German, he also authored numerous books, including The Gospel in the Stars and The Great Pyramid: A Miracle in Stone.

Joseph Augustus Seiss: Is dead on about "THE LORDS DAY" That this is the same wording as "THE DAY OF THE LORD" The time were CHRIST JESUS returns to the earth with HIS FATHER and the heavenly host. And is NOT INTENED TO BE THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK Mr. Seiss Is also right that mankind will dwell on earth for ever and ever, THY KINDOM COME THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HAEVEN I am not done reading yet He is wrong on the TRINITY, THE TRINITY IS ONLY THE SPRIT OF GOD, IT IS NOT A PERSON ONLY GOD THE FATHER AND JESUS CHRIST ARE PERSONS. Mr. Seiss is right that those who become KINGS WILL NOT BE OF THE FLESH BUT OF THE SPRIT AS CHRIST AND HIS FATHER ARE WE WILL BECOME THE SONS OF GOD .
