Excerpt from Impending Revolutions: As Introductory to the Approaching Millennial Jubilee

There are two events spoken of in the New Testament as Christ's coming or dispensation. The first was his coming to be crucified, and to prophesy the destruction of the ancient city of Jerusalem, which was accomplished by Titus seventy years after Christ, and the se cond is his coming to try, judge, acquit or condemn both the quick and the dead. Christ will scourge the buyers and sellers out of the spirit ual temple, as he did when he overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and will convince them that are not already convinced, that they that take the sword, shall perish with the sword and he will teach the people himsel and he will begin his teaching by such judgments, as few, at present, however gloomy maybe their forebodings, can adequately conceive.

It evidently appears to me that the world, instead of reforming, or becoming better, 18 absolutely growing worse. Corruption in church and state, [beast and false prophet, pride, hypocrisy, bigotry, perce cution and intolerance, 18 increasing with a high hand, while infidelity, licentiousness and extravagance, [babylon, ] are daily gaining ground, and marching with surprising rapidity, evidently showing the truth of the observation made by the apostle Peter, that there should come majors 1n the last days, and evidencing to us that those days. Indeed we are given to understand in the Revelations, that under the [our last vials, men repented not of their wickedness, but became more and more corrupt and degenerate, until they were ripe for destruction. So will it be when the harvest is fully ripe. The sickle will be thrust in, and the vintage of the church reaped. The tares will be bound together in bundles to be burned, but the wheat will be gathered into [god's] barn. And my dear friends, the day of visitation is fast approaching - this day of retribution must be near at hand, and as ye know not theday nor the hour, therefore pro pore to meet thy God, 0 l Israel, for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of Man cometh.
