Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

It is the language of scoffers " in the last days," when "the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." Preuiillenarians themselves, if we understand them aright, put this advent at the close of their millennium. By their own showing, therefore, it is remote, general, and final. The...show more
