“Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.”—Revelation 6:4, NIV.
Regarding symbols, nothing is more memorable than the book of Revelations in the Christian Bible. From depicting the Second Coming of Christ to the mark of the beast, countless scholars have constantly worked to decipher the meaning of such passages.
Author Connie Ordelheide-Anderson is one of the many who digs deep into the many passages of the book. Through intensive interpretation, she meticulously connected some of the symbols in the Bible with various historical events. From the fall of great nations to the September 11 attacks, she writes how symbols anciently explained events in world history.
Nevertheless, the book is not just a study of the Book of Revelations. The author also includes prophecies from other books, such as prophets like Daniel and Ezekiel. Many of God’s angels play a vital role in deciphering such symbols as they have their duties during the end of times. As fearsome as it may be for the wicked, many believers will find it the most joyous occasion, especially when Christ returns.
Moreover, despite the book discussing many bleak topics, the author does a great job of providing the truth as honestly and direct as possible. Her passion for helping people reconnect with God shines through the pages effortlessly. She also does a great job of providing hope to readers who may feel scared or hopeless about the future. Her careful yet sincere words exemplify what it means to be a Christian in modern times.
The book concludes with some of the prophecies made by Ellen G. White. Some of her predictions have been proven, while others have yet to come. Regardless of how you feel about such predictions, you may find the author’s interpretations fascinating, informative, and illuminating. Suppose you like reading up on the interpretation of Biblical signs and symbols. In that case, this book is an excellent addition to your growing list of references.
