Fuller on the study of Revelation

I started my Wednesday evening expositions of Revelation at JPBC last night. Among other things, I have been reading Andrew Fuller's discourses on Revelation. I share Fuller's thoughts on this task as he wrote in his introduction c. 1809:

I have lately expressed a wish to enter upon this difficult part of the Holy Scriptures; not because I conceive myself at present equal to the undertaking, but because I think I understand something of it, and hope, by going through it in the way of exposition, to understand more. I enter upon it with fear; but as I shall not attempt to explain that which appears to me to be of doubtful import, I hope it may not be presumptuous, but a profitable undertaking.
