The Book of the Revelation, The Overcomer, and the Apostasy
The Book of the Revelation, The Overcomer, and the Apostasy by Daniel Sheppard USA – ISBN: 978-1705589328: There have been many attempts to bring a comprehensive under-standing to the Christian minds of the mysterious pictures seen in the book of Revelation. As a result, there are many differing views and interpretations. Which in turn some, by deduction, must be less than the truth – even some utterly and completely false, lead-ing some astray, blocking out the light of the truth. Truth, of course, should be the Christian’s goal in any reading of God’s Word. As Jesus said, “I am the truth.” To know truth is to know Christ and those who truly know Christ will know the truth.
The revelation of truth through Him have come to me slowly but consistently (“line upon line, here a little, there a little”), over the last 50 years beginning with the pouring out of His Spirit upon me when I was 18. Certainly, it was a fantastic revelation of Him-self when He chose me from among men to be called a son. I have persevered in the hope of my calling, in spite of great resistance and sacrifice. Early on I began to see beyond my peers into the deeper things, only to encounter regular push back, name calling and a rolling of the eyes. But I could not, would not conform. The pursuit of the truth was to me a treasure hunt that would never end. Looking for nuggets of truth, like treasure in a field of costly pearls. Each find would cost me something with those around me.
