Over  75 Years of Printing The Seventh Trumpet 

ABOUT US:   

JACK AND JUANITA COY


Jack and I live in Mountain Home, AR. We have been married for almost 40 years. Our love is even more alive now that it was in 1978 when we started this journey. It all began when Mom and Dad decided to move to Mountain Home, AR and I met a wonderful man named Jack. He became a Christian after we met and Dad baptized him in the Norfork Lake! We have had many ups and downs, both physically, financially and spiritually. But through it all our God has sustained us and we are ever so thankful to be serving Him. Jack presently works for the Arkansas Forestry Commission. I have been involved in the Trumpet Ministry since I was a child, working in the shop, watching as Mom and Dad printed, wrote, ministered and cared for people. Jack was ordained in the New Testament Church of God in 1986. My first article in Trumpet appeared when I was 10 and as a teenager I wrote an article in each issue. As time went by I continued to write in the Trumpet and I loved the ministry and continue to want to serve the Lord in this way, praying for the Lord to lead, guide and direct us. We are so very thankful for the family the Lord has give us.



The Seventh Trumpet Ministry and Publications was  began by my father,  G.W. Pendleton. He was the best father anyone could have. His love for people and his prayers for their souls covered his life, day and night. The Ministry was begun through much prayer and financial stress. It was his heart and soul. He loved to write and he loved the printed word. This message continues on only because of what God laid upon his soul, and though the opposition he faced, Christ was triumphant and the Trumpet work continues!

He was born in 1905 on a farm in Missouri. He always treasured his roots there and enjoyed going back from time to time.

But His life was totally changed forever when he was saved in 1929 while he was working at the Brown Shoe Company. He was working there with a young man who attended a local church. Dad was also working as a free-lance  reporter for the  Jefferson City, MO Tribune. This teenager told him "Pen, you ought to come to church Sunday, you could do a story on the meeting." So Dad was enticed to check it out, and soon after the service started Dad  was under conviction,  he walked down the isle and turned him life over to Christ and started a journey that would last his lifetime. (See p. 37-40 in his book)

He was called to the ministry in 1933 and he ministered at several churches, first in Missouri and then in Oklahoma, Kansas, and North Carolina, Illinois, It was there that he met Bro. W.S. Goodnight who was teaching on the book of Revelation and that began a life-long love and devotion to the prophecy of the last book of the Bible. He then started traveling more, taking his 33 ft. long Revelation chart. He visited other states, Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee, Indiana, California, Texas. He would hold weekly evangelistic meetings and many were saved, others rededicated their hearts to the Lord and still others were called into the ministry as well. Also during this time there were those where he traveled who were interested in opening up new churches. These churches were not affiliated with other denominations and were free to preach and teach as the Lord led them to.

My father and mother met and fell in love. They were married in 1957. She not only loved him, but she loved the Trumpet Ministry and understood my father's passion for it. She stood behind him through their years of marriage and beyond. She was his "helpmate" as he called her many times. Through good times and bad times, through pain, much opposition and physical heart problems he persevered and Mom was by his side. Their love will always remain a special memory in my heart. She ran the letter press, and then later the offset press, and in the last few years she printed and mailed the Trumpet out, always faithful. In his auto-biography Dad wrote, "Another additional important event to this work was when I was married to Martha Berg, the daughter of a longtime pioneer Church of God minister, Bro. F. G. Berg, on July 20, 1957. She has been a wonderful companion and help in promoting the many phases of this ministry, an efficient operator, stenographer and promoter. Much credit is given her for her commendable and consecrated service.


​He ministered over the Radio for several years.He was on some 35 stations across the U.S., Mexico and Bahamas. One station was XEG, which was a powerful station. The Whitfield Family sang on “The Seventh Trumpet Hour” with him as well. Members of this group are still on the Trumpet list, and I have spoken to Bill Whitfield, and Leo Castleberry over the last few months. It's great to speak with them on the ministry that they joined with Dad to reach around the world. In 1954, he traveled to the Bahamas to minister to the people there. Here is a picture of him baptizing in the ocean there.

Has our Vision Changed?

No. We believe that now more than ever we need to pull together as a family, the bride of Christ. There remains too many divisions and struggles, denominational guidelines. We must let the world see that we are one. We do not have a "church." Christ built the church and if you are a born again believer and have accepted Christ as your Savior, you are a member, and you are my brother or sister. The truth will remain forever. We want our message to promote that love. We believe the Bible from top to bottom, from head to tail, from first to last. Every word was written for our knowledge.  We ask you to remain steadfast in this truth and stand in the fight for Christ and the freedom He gives.

.

My husband Jack and I stand united in this effort.
We want to continue to encourage people and lift up the name of Jesus.
I am so thankful for his faithfulness to the Lord and his love for me and our children.

The beginning of  The Seventh Trumpet.

IN MEMORY OF G.W. & MARTHA PENDLETON

AND THE LEGACY THEY LEFT BEHIND

Here is an excerpt (p. 90) from G.W. Pendleton's autobiography,

“50 Years of Roses and Thorns”

“During a victorious camp meeting some fifteen ministers representing several states met to propose and plan a publication of Revelation. This was in 1943 and the name of the publication would be called “The Seventh Trumpet” and it was to be financed by free will contributions by its readers and sent to everyone who requested it. That paper is in circulation today after thirty-nine years. It has had a far reaching effect over the world, bringing more light and understanding of  prophecy and Revelation of monumental value



This is a picture of Martha Pendleton (Mom) at the computer working on the Trumpet in 2006. She was very faithful in printing each paper, with by the Davidson Press or Computer. The last issue she was able to complete was the Dec/Feb 2010 issue.



The Seventh Trumpet was started out of a need to reach out to the world to tell them that Jesus loves them and that he has always had a plan for his people from the beginning of time until he comes back again for his bride.The Revelation message was always a primary motive. My father studied the book of Revelation for many years and also traveled extensively preaching with a Revelation chart.

 The book of Revelation has many interpretations, which is understandable because of different denominational backgrounds and opinions. Even though my father was steadfast in his beliefs and teachings on the Revelation, I remember many times that he told me that he would not argue with anyone about it. This book is too precious to use to endanger the salvation of a soul or hinder a Christian’s growth. The Trumpet has always had poems and encouraging articles in it. They have been written by many writers across the world. My father wrote many articles through the years. Other ministers have shared their articles on various subjects; others have opened up their heart and gave their testimonies of faith and inspiration. Some told their story of how the 
​Lord had healed them. My Father passed away in 1988 and until that time, my mother and I, along with Dad, continued to write and mail out the Trumpet. When he passed away it was his wish, as well as my mother’s, that the Seventh Trumpet remain in publication and because of the financial help of those who saw this need also, this paper has survived through many struggles.                 And once again in December 2011 my mother, Martha Pendleton passed away, and we were faced with a decision about the future of the Trumpet work. Both my
mother and father’s last words were the same; they wanted to know about whether The Seventh Trumpet Message would continue to go out. As a family we assured them both as the Lord called them home that we would continue the send the paper.


​PURPOSE OF THE SEVENTH TRUMPET
Printed in the Seventh Trumpet October 1946  It may seem that we have far too many Church papers printed today, therefore we do not need anymore.But will you consider with me a few reasonable REASONS why we feel that this periodical should be printed? First - - As far as we know of the Church of God Reformation does not have a regularly printed publication in America which is exclusively devoted and issued in the interest of Prophecy and the Revelation message.Therefore we feel the need of this printed message. Second - - We as a Publication Committee feel the burden and urge of this great message and the need of it going forth. Since “Necessity is the mother of invention,” the need of this truth today prompts the burden and effort in getting it to our people, we well as to others who have never hearth the truth on Revelation.“Blessed is he that readeth and they that hear the words of this prophecy.” Rev. 1:3. But how can they read it without a publication, and how can they hear it without a preacher? Rom. 10:14. Third - - The Revelation message “Babylon is fallen and “Come out of her my people.” with the message of the ONE CHURCH and many other truths along the prophetic subjects concerning the Dragon, the Beast and the image of the best, during Bro. D.S. Warner’s day and later, helped to promote the message of the Biblical Church of God and which message, when obeyed, and by the help of the Lord produced a people free from Sectism and sin. If it accomplished that much then, and it did, will it not do the same thing today? We believe it will when it is promoted. There are millions today who have never hear “The Truth” of the Revelation message and we feel that there is a need of the genuine message of truth going forth and this paper will help to do so.
