When multitudes of different interpretations on The Revelation heap up into a mountain of daunting diversities, one may wonder what is actually true; And if there is a true meaning which excludes all other contradicting opinions, how can the true interpretation actually be discerned from so much diversity?
Well, God had never left His faithful ones to their own devices and so is true with The Revelation of Jesus Christ. Unbeknownst to most people today, The Revelation displays the same symbols and figurative expressions that were given to the prophets of old. Each particular symbol & metaphor carried a definite & consistent meaning, which was well known by the people of God. Such cross references are the keys to discerning what the Spirit of prophesy actually intended.
Unfortunately, such vital reference points have been almost entirely lost & forgotten by the 20th century. In this exposition, we will not only point out those key connections in discerning prophesy language, but also observe the historical events which correspond to the prophesies of The Revelation; This prophetic history also tells the story of how such sensible and biblical principles of interpretation had been abandoned for novel ideas that led to the overwhelming diversities which have now demoralized more than encouraged. Yet realizing what the Spirit of prophesy actually intended may be the most encouraging reinforcement of faith that anyone could have.
