Summary: Jim Burruss shares why Revelation is an extremely motivational book. He believes it is the most motivational one in the Bible—even though it has been, and continues to be, one of the least studied Bible books. Therefore, most people only “know” what someone else has told them about Revelation.. .and not the result of personal study, although the apostle Paul tells each of us in 2 Timothy 2: 15, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth” (NASB).

Most people are aware there are many conflicting conclusions and teachings circulating regarding the book of Revelation. In this easy-to-understand commentary, you will learn the importance of studying the Bible for yourself, paying attention to what it says, and avoid speculating about the meaning. In The Seventh Trumpet Has Sounded, Jim shares some conclusions that may pique your interest and cause you to reconsider what you may have “understood” in the past. Some subjects are Armageddon, the 1000-year reign of Christ, the powers of the devil, the 144,000, identity of “666,” and the “last days.”

Let’s be real. The Book of Revelation is confusing even to a Bible scholar. It’s even more confusing for the layperson. This book goes through the sections and explains what they are about. He also goes through the symbolism and different things that are talked about.

Anyone who is interpreting the Bible can easily get away from themselves and start interpreting things that aren’t there. THIS author doesn’t seem to do that. His interpretations make sense. I’m sure someone out there might disagree with him because interpreting the Bible isn’t a cut and dried thing. However I found this book very helpful. I will have to read through it a second time, perhaps with a highlighter.

Throughout the book, key words or phrases and Bible references are bold. This makes it easier to know which part of the Bible is being referenced. It also emphasizes those key words and phrases. The book is word heavy and there are no pictures. Revelations is confusing so you will want to read this book slowly with minimal distractions.
