A design

Consider also the designe of the Apocalyps. Was it not given for the use of the Church to guide & direct her in the right way, And is not this the end of all prophetick Scripture? If there was no need of it, or if it cannot be understood, then why did God give it? Does he trifle? But if it was necessary for the Church then why doest thou neglect it, or how knowest thou that thou art in the right way, and yet doest not understand it?”

that reminded me of something augustine wrote

“What then, Brothers, shall we keep silence?
Or why hear it if it is not to be explained?
But also,
why explain it if it is not to be understood?”
let us attempt to understand it
