Concerning the prophesying of the two witnesses.

The little book commences with the year 606, or with the

beginning of the first woe-trumpet, p. 50:- What is meant

by nieasuring the temple, and not measuring the outer court

of the Gentiles, p. 51.--The two witnesses are not the Old

and New Testaments, p. 53.-— Bp. Newton is perfectly right

in the spirit, though not quite accurate in the letter, of his

interpretation of their character, p. 54. They are certainly
two churches, p.54.-Throughout the whole Apocalypse,
the idea of a twofold Church of Christ is constantly pre-
served: the Church before and the Church after, the
advent of our Lord, p. 55. The two witnesses literally re-
present these two Churches, forming jointly the faithful
Church general: but spiritually they mean the mystical
children of the universal Church, those that are Israelites,
indeed, p. 56.--The circumstance of their being said to pro-

phesy is no objection to the supposition, that they symbolize

all God's faithful witnesses during the prevalence of the

Apostasy, p. 57.-In what sense they shut up heaven, and

smite the earth with plagues, during the time of their pro-

phesying, p. 58.-In what sense they are said to have only

one mouth, p. 60.--How, and when, the two witnesses were

slain by the beast of the bottomless pit, p.69.-Our Lord was

literally crucified within the limits of the great city, P-78.

-In what manner the witnesses lay dead three days and

a half, p. 82.- The meaning of the word Hour, p. 104.-A

what period we are to divide the first woe-trumpet from the

second woe-trumpet in the history of the Western Apostasy,


[ocr errors]

p. 108.-At the close of the second woe, the great earthquake
of the French Revolution throws down a tenth part of the
Roman city, p. 114.-At the sounding of the seventh trum-
pet, or third woe-trumpet, the limited monarchy of revolu-
tionary France is dissolved; and the reign of openly esta-
blished Anarchy and Atheism commences, p. 120.
