I reverence the Constitution of the United States as a sacred document. To me its words are akin to the revelations of God, for God has placed his stamp of approval on the Constitution of this land.
Words themselves were the ultimate barrier to revelation.
The last words of Jesus to the church (in Revelation) were âRepent!â
After reading the doctrines of Plato, Socrates or Aristotle, we feel the specific difference between their words and Christ's is the difference between an inquiry and a revelation.
The book of Revelation is written largely in symbols.
Joseph Franklin Rutherford
Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own.
