    1. were the peoples of the world to grasp the true significance of the words of God, they would never be deprived of their portion of the ocean of His bounty

      Bounty comes from understanding the words. The Revelation is, firstly, the words (and the spiritual energy they contain).

    1. “Do you not see the reason for yourself,” he indifferently replied.

      Ah, answering a question with a question: either a deliberate rudeness or an apathetic request for attention. I think the latter is the case here.

    1. flexibility allows you to study what you need when you need it

      This is likely true for any study system. Then comes my question, how do I balance that flexibility with having some sort of overarching direction and plan? I need to be open to be guided by the Spirit (especially since I don't even have a mission president LOL).

    1. Rev. v.

      What Williams is specifically alluding to here in this passage is Revelation 5:11-12, that further alludes to the the execution of Jesus as the "greater slaughter":

      "And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders:and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing."

    1. There is no reason for you to feel that you must be able to understand the new view before you see it. There is no way for Revelation to mean the revealing of what you already know, except in the Absolute sense. Your Being has always moved beyond your present concepts of Reality, and you have always recognized it as a sudden influx of inspiration and understanding which went beyond what you had previously been aware of. You have simply never been aware of the process before, only the result. This time you are aware of the process—of the breakdown of the old concepts and the appearing of the Revelation. In actuality, the whole process of breakdown and the new view is the One, Total Function of Being called Revelation. It is happening in slow motion, so to speak, and you are having the opportunity to observe the process. You are, indeed, the Answer. I would stick with this Fact as constantly as you are able, even if it appears not to be so, and not to be evident. You are going to stick with something, and it might as well be the Fact.

      Being always moves beyond your present concept of Reality.

      Revelation is the breakdown of concepts resulting in a new view of Reality. It is the One, Total Function of Being.

      Question: is this saying that the function of Being is growth into a more expansive view of Reality? We call this Revelation.
