Not illustrated. 1853 edition. Excerpt: ...The prophet declares that a spirit entered into him, he records the words which were spoken on the occasion, and relates that during the interview ' a roll, written within and without, ' was given to him by a spirit, only the hand being visible at the time it was presented. (Ezekiel, second chapter.) While Belshazzar, surrounded by a thousand of his lords, was indulging his vain ambition at a royal revel it is said that, " In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaster of the wall of the king's palace; and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote." (Daniel, fifth chapter.) The Apocalypse consists of a number of spiritual communications addressed to the churches of Asia Minor. But the Kevelations were not directly inspired by the Divine Mind. On the contrary, they were expressly dictated by subordinate spirits. The internal evidence on this point is very clear, and there seems to be no room to indulge a rational doubt respecting the mode of communication. Banished from the society of the great world, and left to meditation amid the solitudes of Patmos, the devout spirit of the Revelator naturally sought intercourse with kindred spirits. He became a medium, and that he was impelled by spiritual influence to record what he witnessed, appears from the frequent command of the spirits to " Write." That John was entranced by spiritual agency, while thus employed, must be inferred fVom such expressions as the following: "I was in the spirit on the Lord's day;" ' And immediately I was in the spirit;" "And ho carried me away in, the spirit into the wilderness;" and, again, " He carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain...".show more
