Excerpt from The Signs of the Times, Vol. 2 of 2: As Denoted by the Fulfilment of Historical Predictions, Traced Down From the Babylonish Captivity to the Present Time
But as, after the mighty angel had cried, or the Reformation was established, the seven thunders uttered their voices, it is written in history that the Reformation was the main and principal spring which moved the nations from that illustrious period down to the time of another mighty revolution, which bears not the character of religious, and drew not its light from heaven. And the civil and re ligious revolutions that fill the annals of history between these most eventful eras, and of the great est part of which the Reformation was the occasion, may perhaps, without any violence to things sacred or civil, be now viewed retrospectively, that it may be seen whether, as emanating from the Reforma tion, they do not, like all antecedent history, occupy their own place in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, and, exclusive of any specific definition, give palpa ble illustration from their origin, nature, and number, that the seven thunders which uttered their voices alter the Reformation needed not to be farther writ; ten, in order that their significancy might finally be obvious without affording a seeming sanction to Christians to look on war as their calling.
