They claim that this time must come yet,' That it never has been. Now this is a false impression cast upon the minds of such believers. And now inorder to take from their minds this false idea, we shall take up this 20th. Chapter, and use such parts, as -sill en lighten those minds. In the first place, we shall re mind the Reader, that John saw an anuel come down from heav en, and have tbe key of the bot tomless pit, and had a great chain in his band. Ahd he Jaid bold on tbe devil and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and set a sal on him that be could not deceive the nations no more un til! the thousand years were fin ished, then he must be loosed for a little season, to go out and gather Gog and Magog together to war against the saints. Now listen, the angel which came down from heaven with the key of the bottomless pitVwas Christ. Tbe bottemless pit, is space, for there is no bottom to snace. And when Christ cast the devil out of man, he then was in space. For Christ said "Now is the judgment of this world; now shall the prince of this world be cast out." St, John 12-31. Cast out where? Into space And when he finds himself cast out, then he was to walk up and down in the earth, and find ing no rest, be went back to where he was cast out, and be found the bouse swept and gar nished after Christ had cast'him out. Christ had the key of space. and He cast the devil into space, for he had a great chain in bis hand, and Christ laid bold on the old dragon, and bound him a thousand years, But when did all this take place, is the Question? And we answer: 'inat wnen Christ bound Satan at tbe end of tbe forty days te rotation in the wilderness, when Christ said tet thee behind me satan! is first, which is death. And we shall give you one more-scripture to confirm this fact V'PJease read; "And he shall send ... Jesus , Christ, which beforS' wa,, preacheJ unto you, Whom the heavens must ; receive until the times of res'U tution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all ( his hoiy prophets since; the . world began. Aets 3-20-J1, Hare is a positive declaration v that tbe heavens must receive., i Christ, until the restitution of all things spoken of by ail . the , 1UB lv Bus.uy """" " I hn17 nrnnhpU ainr thp. world hfl. destroyed is death." (1 Cor. 15 1. r "Y J7 " when He, Christ, hound him. And th6 thousand years men tioned is just to specify a space of time, and that time jvas, just from the time that Christ said get tbe hence satan, until be gave Jud5 Isacarot the sop then Christ loosed , bim again and he has been loosed, ever since, This time is tbe little season spoken of. For in the 20 chap of Rev. quoted ahove we learnd that John saw throne?, and those that sat upon them and judgment was given them . Now. who was those Bpoken ol? and wnen the dead lived we must take into consideration the first resurrection, and seu when it was, an,l for this proof we must ask you to read. ' Marvel not at this for the hour is coming, in tbe which all that are in tbe graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth, they that have done good unto tne resurrection ot life, and tbey that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation." tit, John 5-2S-'J9. Now then if we can find out when this was, we will then know when tbe thousand years ended. by tbe rest ol the dead living, for in the scripture above it says All that are in their graves shall come forth. So please read. Tbe rest said, Let be, let-us see whether Elias will come to save him- Jesus, when be bad cried again with aloud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom ; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened, and many (bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many." Matt. 2749 to 53. This was the first resurrection it is at tbe resurrection pf Christ. For it is written: ''Thy dead men shall live, to gether with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out tbe dead.1 Isa. 26-19. - There is nothing any plainer than this. That is when the first resurrection was, which ended the thousand years reign with Christ. And this too ends tbe thought of Christ coming here and reigninjr on earth again for a thousand years. For it is written:' ''The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies tby foot stool." IPs. 1101. Please read again, "For David is not ascended into tbe heavens; but he saitb himself. The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand. Un'.il I make thv foes tby loot stool. ((Acts 2-34-35.) With these facts before us we see that Christ has sit down at the right band of the father -25-26.) So tbe reader will see plainly that Christ cannot come until death is destroyed. And then the kingdom will be delivered up to the father, please read, "And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto bim that put all things under bim, that God may be all in all." 1 Cor. 15-28. No room for Christ to coma any more until all things is sub dued under bis feet even the last enemy must be destroyed gan. And tie cannot como Deiore. For it is truly written, "For Moses truly said unto tbe fathers A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. i And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall bo destroyed from among the pejple.
