Why does Paul write his letter to the Romans?

Why does Paul write a letter to the Romans? There are a number of reasons, not just a single one. One reason is that he wants to be assisted by them as he goes to Spain on a mission trip. But above all, he writes as the apostle to the Gentiles because of the grace that has been given to them, to write to establish them, and to make sure things are going well at the church in Rome because that’s his responsibility. He had a unique view of his apostleship.

Jesus is Coming Soon: Revelation 22:6-21

One of the problems with preachers who are obsessed with prophecy is that virtually read every current event as a sign that Jesus is coming back. Most of us see the mistake in that view.
