“Revelation,” by Timothy G. Riley, author of “Victims” takes the reader on a journey through the Bible which will increase understanding and appreciation of God's Holy Word. Mr. Riley doesn't claim to be a scholar or theologian, but with earnest and honest respect, approaches the Bible as a God-breathed document not to be interpreted by man but to be interpreted by its own words. He demonstrates that a word can be understood in the sentence it is used, in the context of the section in which it appears, and by comparing other places in the Bible where the word has been used. In this manner the author enlightens us, word by word. The end result is that gain of greater understanding of the Bible, with an emphasis on practical application. “Revelation” contains many historical facts and biblical knowledge that will reward the careful reader. Some of these jewels include the fact that Barabbas had committed a political murder, and that physical descriptions of Jesus are noticeably absent despite extensive personal descriptions of others throughout the Bible. Why? The reader will learn that the word qesheth is introduced as His sign of the covenant between Jehovah and Israel after the flood and means rainbow. What did Ezekiel’s wheel look like, and why are there so many contradicting descriptions of it by scholars? These and many other questions are answered in this well researched book. Tim Riley has sought God’s wisdom throughout the last 35 years as a student of the Bible. He’s also an artist, so when he discusses biblical imagery, he comes at it from an artist’s point of view as well as from a biblical perspective. “Revelation” is not a “quick read,” but is meant to be read slowly. Checking words in concordances along the way will help the reader confirm the truths presented. The investment in time will be well worth it. --Buck Dopp Are you ready for a treasure hunt? “Revelation” by Timothy G. Riley opens the scripture with God's help. A believer begins to realize that Bible research tools aren't just for church ministers and pastors. God's Word is for all of His children to search and appreciate. The Word of God in Psalm 19.1-3 encourages each person where to listen and look for God's glory and follows, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard” A Bible concordance frequently lists a word in an original Bible text language and its English companions. One Greek or Hebrew word is transliterated into a number of English words. With God's help, a believer is able to compare and meditate on the scriptures with an original Greek or Hebrew word in mind. Through confirming the research in “Revelation,” a believer's fear of Bible research tools is eliminated with God's help. Bible research tools were developed for believers to confirm and search for accurate meanings of original Bible text words. As a result, numerous requests may very well pour into libraries to provide Bible research tools for believers that want to know. For people that hunger and thirst for righteousness you shall be filled. Psalm 12.6 reads, “The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.” Seven times emphasizes His love especially for you. If you really want to know the book of Revelation, ask God to open the Word of God in this book to you. If you ask for bread, God will not give you a stone.
