The Book of Revelation was easy to understand by all men and women when it was written.
1 Nephi 14
22 And he [John see verse 27] shall also write concerning the end of the world.
23 Wherefore, the things which he [John see verse 27] shall write are just and true; and behold they are written in the book which thou beheld proceeding out of the mouth of the Jew; and AT THE TIME THEY PROCEEDED OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE JEW, or, at the time the book proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, the things which were written were PLAIN and pure, and most precious and EASY TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF ALL MEN.
27 And I, Nephi, heard and bear record, that the name of the apostle of the Lamb was John, according to the word of the angel.
The book of Revelation is one of the plainest books God ever caused to be written. – Joseph Smith, 08 Apr 1843, History of the Church 5:342
Although Anthony and I don’t see eye to eye on everything, I am grateful for the hard work he puts into sharing and the time he allowed me to help spread the word regarding the Polar Configuration. I do believe it is an important part of the gospel. And I hope more people will take the time to study it, and see the plainness it brings to the Book of Revelation, and many other books, as at the time it was written.
I also gave some instructions in the MYSTERIES of the kingdom of God; such as the HISTORY OF THE PLANETS, Abraham’s writings upon the PLANETARY SYSTEMS, ect. – Joseph Smith, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg 118
