If you have set your eyes on this book in the hopes of gaining greater clarity and practical application for today you have come to the right source. Author Tom Allen will masterfully help you gain a panorama view of God manifesting his differing roles in each of the 7 churches. The 7 stars, representative of the angels of the 7 churches, will live out their task in making Christ known in their particular roles.
As you are already aware of the heavy symbolism, it will be refreshing to gain first time knowledge on the seals, the trumpet, and Babylon. Interesting revelation to wet your appetite is that the pouring out of cups is the way we live our lives in service to God and others. The 144,000 mentioned in Rev. 7:4 is not literal but symbolizes the 12 tribes of 12,000 that represent the New Jerusalem.
Other fascinating information provided include the following: - how our thinking and behaviors can make us the Harlot as well as the Bride -how the tabernacle-outer, inner, and Most Holy place-symbolize our relationship with God -significance of the Tabernacle articles
This study is not a verse by verse commentary as such but groups concepts and themes together to help make better sense of it comprehensively. Through it all you will know more of God's heart for His people and His longing for our affectionate move toward deeper intimacy. I recommend you reading this alongside your Bible and marking many words and passages. If you are a teacher this will be a treasure chest of revelation.
This is definitely a 5 star book and a wonderful Bible study aid.
This book will rock your boat, ark. I now have a totally new understanding of the book of Revelation. I am still trying to get the whole picture but it will come. So many things I have previously missed by not digging deeper. A whole new mind set for us to consider.

I think this book is the Best I've read in a very long time, as it's helped me fully understand my journey in relationship to Jesus Christ, especially in the last decade as I've progressed from the 4th Church to the 7th Chuch. It's been a trying time, but now I see what God has been leading me to, teaching me, even though at the time, I felt unsure & scared. I'm so grateful to God for leading Tom Allen to write this book & leading me to read it! May HIS will be done in all who read it!

I have had an interest in Bible symbolism for quite a few years and have found that all prophetic scripture, when understood symbolically, speak of our present, ongoing relationship with God. Scripture previously understood as portraying physical death and destruction, in reality, speak of the spiritual death of our own will and a resurrection within each of us. There is a Kingdom of God, it is within us, and we may enter into it at will. It is a place of joy, peace and His, not our, righteousness.
