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.

In the third installment of his latest Revelation study, Jack Marshall offers the key to many symbolic passages. The abyss refers to man's carnal nature. The lake of fire is to consume our unrighteousness. The beast with seven heads and ten horns is Babylon, the church under the fulfilling of the law. The Euphrates he associates with Noah and the flood as well as a restrainer. The sun and the moon represent the covenants (12:1). The man child is Christ in us. Ten is the number of the law which brings divine order. These and many other spiritual interpretations are made.

Sometimes it gets a bit confusing. In talking about the locusts (Rev 9, 5th angel) in chapter 5 they seem like demonic creatures. But in chapter 13 about the horsemen (Rev 9, 6th angel) he says;

"In our “tongue” is found “the power of life and death.” So we read in Revelation 9:19, “For their power is in their mouth,” indicating that the words of the army of the horsemen are the words of life (Php. 2:16; I John 1:1)." p.113

I'm sure Mr. Marshall knows what he's talking about, but it will take the rest of us some time to catch up. The book is well worth reading.
