Overview

THE title of this book - a quotation from the sixty-sixth Psalm - indicates not only its subject, but its aim and purpose. I have to thank my friend Miss A. R. Habershon for permitting me to use her Concordance of the Lord's names and titles as an Appendix. While Bible students will greatly value this Appendix, I fear it will be neglected by the ordinary reader. And these pages need never have been written were it not that the New Testament is commonly treated in a similar fashion, the Book of the Revelation being regarded as a negligible Appendix to the Gospels and Epistles. But the Patmos visions are divinely given to enable us by faith to behold what the beloved disciple saw when "in the Spirit on the Lord's day."
That some among them had "no knowledge of God," was the reproach the Apostle cast upon the Christians of Corinth. And were he with us today, might he not charge us with having no knowl- edge of the Lord of glory? For the Christian who accepts the opening vision of the Apocalypse as being a divine revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ as now enthroned in heaven, will need neither warning nor appeal to avoid all irreverent freedom in naming Him - to shun even the appearance of forgetting "the honour of His name." R.A.
