Studies In The Book Of Revelation

Forth rushed with whirlwind sound The chariot of Paternal Deity,

Flashing thick flames, wheel within wheel undrawn,

Itself instinct with spirit, but convoyed

By four Cherubic shapes, four faces each

Had wondrous, as with stars their bodies all

And wings were set with eyes, with eyes the wheels

Of beryl, and careering fires between;

Over their heads a crystal firmament,

Whereon a sapphire throne, inlaid with pure

Amber, and colours of the show'ry arch.

He in celestial panoply all armed

Of radiant Urim, work divinely wrought,

Ascended, at his right hand Victory

Sat eagle-winged, beside him hung his bow

And quiver with three-bolted thunder stored,

And from about him fierce effusion rowled

Of smoke and bickering flame, and sparkles dire.

John Milton, Paradise Lost [6.749-66]

The Saviour is working mightily among men, every day He is invisibly persuading numbers of people all over the world, both within and beyond the Greek-speaking world, to accept His faith and be obedient to His teaching. Can anyone, in the face of all this, still doubt that He has risen and lives, or rather that He is Himself the Life?

St. Athanasius, On the incarnation [30]

INTERPRETING REVELATION

From the outset, two problems confront us when we attempt to study the Book of Revelation. First is the question of ensuring that our interpretation is correct — placing checks on our imagination, so that we do not force God's holy Word into a mold of our own inventions. We must let the Book of Revelation say what God intended it to say. The second problem is the issue of ethics - what to do with what we've learned.
