About Jack Marshall

I was born in California in 1957, but raised in Oklahoma, where my experience with Christianity began at the age of 19. After several years of attending various denominational and non-denominational churches, my love for the Bible and desire to understand the scriptures became a vital part of my life. Ordained in my twenties, I spent several years ministering in homes, jails, and churches. Through in-depth study for the past 40 years, I have discovered that the message of scripture is truly one of hope, love, and encouragement for the entire world.

The number seven occurs throughout the book of Revelation and Marshall sees the focus of the number as the seven churches and God's message to Christianity.

"...we must understand and “keep” until “the end.” This is what the seven angels, churches, prophecies, seals, trumpets, and bowls symbolize; His work, the work of Christ in and among His people." p.139

The judgments found in the book are understood as corrections for His church. (1 Pet 4:17). The two covenants come together to show the spiritual nature of the Law.

"...the “beast rising out of the sea” is indicative of the seven churches in Revelation which represent the body of Christ, while the “beast rising out of the earth” represents the false Christ’s and false prophets which have long been an integral part of the church." p.82

This is a spiritual interpretation and a refreshing alternative to the typical preterist, futurist, or historicist interpretations.

Revelations is not one of my favorite books in the New Testament, but certainly is deserving of study. I am grateful for the "7" discovery.
