The following is an extract from Mackenzie's Royal Masonic Cyclopaedia upon this subject: With infinite learning and patience the author of The Book of God, who preserves strict anonymity, has endeavored to show that the work, Apocalypse, was originally revealed to a primaeval John, otherwise Cannes and identical with the first messenger of God to man;. This theory is sufficiently remarkable to be mentioned here. The messengers, twelve in number, are supposed by the author to appear at intervals of years. Thus: 1, Adam, 3000 A. M. 2, Enoch, 3600 A.M. 3, Fohi, 4200 A. M. 4, Brigoo, 4800 A. M.5, Zaratusht 5400 A. M. 6, Thoth, 6000 is A. M. 7, Amosis or Moses 6600 A. M. 8, Laotseu, 7200 A. M. 9, Jesus, 7800 A..M. 10, Mohammed, 8400 A. M. l l, Chengiz-Khan A.9000 A. M., and 12, the twelfth messenger yet to be revealed, 9600 A. M.
With the aid of this theory, the whole history of the world, down to our own days, is shown to be foretold in the Apocalypse, and although it is difficult to agree with the accomplished writer's conclusions, supported by him with an array of learning and a sincere belief in what is stated, no one with any taste for these studies should be without this wonderful series of books. The same author has published, in two volumes, a revised edition of the Book of Enoch, with a commentary, and he promises to continue, and, if possible, complete his design.
