Biblical books. Never has it been interpreted as a whole, nor rarely even in part. This is not strange when we discover that its seemingly plainest statements are those which hide deepest whatever should be concealed until the appointed time. Hence the failure of all who attempt the book through western methods of interpretation, those which often favor an absurd literalness. Revelation is no illogical rhapsody. I ts seeming lack of order is deliberate and wholl outward. I ts import cannot be over-estimated. I ts times and seasons are as yet unaccomplished, for they have been fulfilled only in type. Falling Rome is but a hint of things to come: hence the difficulties and final failure of the contemporary historical method of interpretation, one which at first thought seems warranted. That certain of the prophecies of Revelation have been accomplished in type, proves the seership of the author, and hints that upon most of the book the present century, begun with wonderful and crowding events, will set the seal of truth fulfilled to the letter. If the would-be interpreter is unable at the outset to perceive the peculiar astrological and zodiacal symbolism of Revelation, or if he fail to understand the mystery language which, like a shell, hides the kernel truth, it were well that he abandon at once an effort sure to lead him far afield, and result only in another of those many falsifications of the book which the centuries have been guilty of.
