The Apocalypse, or the Revelation of St. John the Divine : With a Few Notes and Reflections Intended for the Plain Readers of the Holy Volume (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Apocalypse, or the Revelation of St. John the Divine: With a Few Notes and Reflections Intended for the Plain Readers of the Holy Volume The Apocalypse may be justly accounted a won derful book; containing a history of the Church, in its great outlines, from the days of the Apostle to the consummation of all things. It is very much through the media of scenery and symbols that its in struction is given us: we are called upon to exercise our minds; Dan. X11. 4: and 10: and we gain that measure of knowledge which is suited to us as moral agents in a state of probation or trial. But what ever obscurity may belong to this book, I must re gard it as a matter-of-fact book, whose contents are immediately connected with the great and continued stream of the world's transactions, and which are not to be frittered away by any arts of mysticism and abstraction.
