The general principle adhered to throughout is that of literalizing instead
of spiritualizing. Statements of fact and historical accounts are accepted as
such. THE RULE OBSERVED IS: Take the Bible literally wherein it is at all
possible; if symbolic, figurative or typical language is used, then look for the
literal truth it intends to convey.
During the author?s 100,000 hours in 43 years of searching the Scriptures
this all-important and fundamental principle of interpretation has been strictly
and consistently followed. Novel interpretations have been rejected, and
theories supported by personal opinion alone have been laid aside.
In the preparation of this work, therefore, the aim has been to prove the
teachings of the notes contained in this work with plain Bible references. The
reader is invited to see for himself what these related passages are actually
saying on any given subject found in the notes. In this way he will learn well
the lesson of "rightly dividing the Word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15); and he will
see that the Holy Bible is in perfect harmony throughout.
Notes for the entire Bible are being prayerfully presented in the hope that
they may be used of God to bring a simple and clear understanding of His Word to
the average person, and that it will inspire him with faith to received the full
benefits of the Gospel for body, soul, and spirit.
