The Seventh Trumpet and The Seven Thunders by Russell Stendal, Book review

  • Paperback: 167 pages
  • Publisher: LIFE SENTENCE Publishing (September 1, 2013)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1622450985


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.

My thoughts:

Russell Stendal shares once again his grasp of Scripture and personal understanding of the modern Church. His mastery of the more intriguing Bible prophecies takes readers of The Seventh Trumpet And The Seven Thunders on a spiritual growth journey you should not miss. 

This time his Old Testament objective centers mainly on symbolism concerning Noah and God's plan for Christians in today's world.  By taking an in depth look at the Seventh Trumpet and the Seven Thunders in Revelation, Russell shares his ideas about God's plan of Redemption which most of us might otherwise overlook thus ignore warnings for the End Times.

Details of the Leviathan* system and current governments and institutions also included makes this book an excellent tool for students of Revelation and Prophecies! It goes to say this is a book you will want to go back to time and time again in the future.

Never a doom speaker, but a Christian who lives by the Boy Scout rule: Be Prepared!
Spot on for any student of the Word and well worth 5 stars yet again!

(Leviathan, a sea monster referenced in the Tanakh, or the Old Testament)*

Meet the Author:

When Russell Stendal was 27 years old, he was kidnapped by the Marxist guerrillas called the FARC. The story of his kidnapping is told by him in the book he wrote titled Rescue the Captors. His reason for the title is because he realized that his captors were more prisoners than he was. There was a chance he would be released, but most of his kidnappers were young boys who had been taken from their families, given a weapon and taught to kill. They are threatened with death to themselves and/or their families should they try to escape. Not to mention their spiritual captivity.

Russell has been running a 24 hour Christian radio station out in the southeastern plains of Colombia, which reaches into an area that is mostly guerrilla controlled, but also reaches some drug traffickers and some paramilitary.

  1. You review some interesting books on all different subjects Noelle, but its so hard to find time to read all that we'd like to read. What a terrible experience for the author, it must make you view life so differently when you've survived something like that, we just cannot imagine.
    We have thousands of books in our home (well I my first job was as a librarian for 8 years I so love books!) mostly second hand, and it always surprises me anew when I see homes without bookshelves. I cannot imagine not being surrounded by books.
    Thanks for sharing Noelle, hope all well, sending you best wishes across the ocean from Kent!

    1. A librarian...Aaahhh, your love of books is now clear!
      I am glad you appreciate the diversity, I like to mix and match even if I limit myself to Christian material only. There are amazing people in this world, Russell is certainly one of those!
      We have not been to Kent in 4 years and I miss it!
      All the best and hugs to Logan,


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
Thank you for stopping by!
