MR No. 1053—The Book of Revelation is Important Today
The Book of Revelation is Important Today
Written December 4, 1906, from Sanitarium, Napa County, California, to W. W. Simpson
The Lord Jesus sent a mighty angel to make plain to John by the use of symbols the things that were to transpire until the coming of Christ. He was bidden to write the instruction in a book for the benefit of the seven churches. This writing we now have preserved in the book of Revelation, but this book is understood by only a very few. It contains the message for the last days, and we are to dwell much upon these prophecies. 13MR 304.1
The work of explaining the Bible by the Bible itself is the work that should be done by all our ministers who are fully awake to the times in which we live.—Letter 376, 1906, p. 7. 13MR 304.2
