In an editorial, some weeks sinco, one
sentenco reads thus: "Our belief is that
our world's history is near the end." THE

ninny good peop rmay be unrosonably si
disturbed by such declt,ration, and that
they "would like to know what reasons we g,
have for entertaining such a belief." To
this the editor of THE RE.coln adds his
own wish that we "would give the public -
the benefit of whatever information we
may have on the subject." t
WYe do not profess to have more informa
tion thaini others have or might obtain from in
the Scriptures and the signs Of the tim ' v
as predicted in the Scriptures. 'Ihe ad
vent of Christ will cud the probation of
the world. We lix to hour, no day, nor N
year. Only the study of God's word and
the drifting signs.of the tlnes le d us to
the belief that tho worki Is approaching an I,
inparallele(i crisis. Whether that crisis S
will he the end of the world or something
else time will show. C
Soma persons teach that certain things sj
ate yet. t takepiA.ce boforc tl'e,corning of
Christ, which thhigs we are persuaded have p
already taken 1)lace.
For instance : ''Ask of me, and I 'shall
give thee the heathen for thine inheritance T
and the uttermtost parts of the earth for '
thy possession." Pa. 11. 8. This was cer- .
tainly fuhilled in thlc coronation of the
Son, when all power was given unto him :o
in heatven and in earth. In tfnaay parts of 0
the earth, not excluding parts of 'Christen
dom," there ire millions of people who il
''will not have this man to rule over them." L
Such are ighorantly or knowingly in rebel
lion against the Ring df kings, i
Many will ask: "Is not the gospel to be a
preached in -all the world before the end
comes?" has not this been done already? f
At the time of the Pentecost "there were
dwelling at Jerusalem devout men" out of
every nation under heaven, who saw and ,
heard and. understood the marvelous mani
festations of that occasion. Representa
tively every nation then and there heard in
their own language all that the tongues of 3
fire spake. d
}3ut there is Scripture miore direct: "The ,
hope which is laid up for you in heaven, n
whereof ye heard before in the word of r
the truth of the gospel; which is come
unto you, as it is in all the world." Col. i.
5, 0. ''Be not moved away from the hope .
of the gospel, which ye have heard, and
20hic/h vas preacad to eeerj creature which
1s under Iearen.' V. 23. ''Mave they not
heard? Yes, verily their Found went into
all the earth, and their words unto the ends
of the nurtd." Itomn. x. IS.
If we htave crrecetly explained and ap- e
plied the Seripture; r uoted-the giving of
Lhe uttermost parts of the earth to the Son,r
and the preaching of the gospel in all the
world--then those events to which they
refer are not between the present genera

of blood poison which ran into. the ee
