It is the purpose of this treatise to get at the bottom of some of the early misconceptions and misinterpretations of the Apocalypse -- and by a positive approach endeavor to place the book in its rightful place of honor and esteem among the canonical books of the New Testament. May the Holy Spirit bless this work, and confirm the writer and his readers in the opinion of the early church fathers that this grand. book of comfort and consolation for the world weary Christian pilgrim was written by the Apostle St. John the Divine, by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it is a part of those inspired writings which are “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." With this purpose in mind, then, and with great humility of spirit, and in perfect agreement with the analogy of faith and the historical confessions of the Church, let us study the early history of this much discussed and much perverted Revelation or St. John the Divine.
