Review: The Seventh Trumpet&The Seven Thunders by:Russell M. Stendal
About the Book:
We interpret much of the Old Testament in light of the New Testament, but the keys to the signs and symbols of the book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ are found in the Old Testament. This is where we discover the message of the seventh trumpet. It will sound along with the previous six trumpets on the last day, but the Lord has been sounding this message throughout all of history. The trumpet symbolizes the direct voice of God and the gospel of redemption. It was blown to warn of danger and announce that there is shelter and protection in God.
So what does the Lord require of us so that we may participate in His plan of redemption?

Revelation is hard book, probably one of the hardest for many to understand and study. I myself am totally and completely baffled when it comes to this particular book. The Seventh Trumpet&The Seven Thunders, is a book that explores the Old Testament prophecies and how those prophecies were carried out in the New Testament writings.The authors interpretation and commentary along with scripture feel this out to where it is put into better understanding not only for the person new to it but also to those of us that don't fully understand that part of scripture in it's text.
The author carefully skims through each prophecy to provide a better understanding of what we should do as a christian and also what the church should do and be doing to avoid the wrath of God. We are constantly going through trials to give us a better sense of the Lord and His will to better prepare us for those days that seem close at hand. The author also briefly comments throughout the book on Columbia and his work there. Through the experiences of the author and his commentary may we all come to a better understanding of the last days in order to further the advance of the gospel.
