The subjett of the seeond coming of Christ and the consequent end pf the world has been brought prominently before us by this great world war. The various bodies of Christian be-. lievers who have made this doctrine prominent in all their teaching have seized upon recent events as sure proof that the end is at hand. One of tkem, the Kosselliles, or I. B. 8. A. have even got into conflict with the government through thpir teachings. And a group of famous elergyiu, of whom U. Campbell Morgan is pcrhapi the most noted, has issued a manifesto giving their reasons for believing this war is to end this age. la view oi these things it seems fitting to discuss this topic at this time. . 2 The. 2:1-3. Now we beteach you, brethren, bv the eoaiiRg of sur Lord Jesus Christ That ye be not soon shaken in mind as that the day of Christ is at hand. Ever siuce that day en Olivet whea the little company of disciples watched thru Lord ascend until the cloud hid him from tKvir sight, and heard tbo angels message that some tine ho should so come again in like manner as they had seen him go into heaven, the Christian world have expeelautly looked for his return. If we read our Bible correetly this hope is founded up on scripture promise as positive and definite as the promise which so long awaited fulfillment in the Old Testa ment days, that the Messiah should come. But just as there was much eon- fusion and misunderstanding regarding the promise of his first coming, so tho prophecy of his second coming has been misunderstood and misconstrued until the Christian publie is hopelessly bewil dered upon this matter. - . But the majority hold to a definite fnd of the world, at which time our Lord will definitely return, and end the present world order. But those who thus believe are divided into two parties, holdiue nuite contrary beliefs. The one party, known as post-milleniaiists, hold that as Christ is directing his church aud inspiring their activity by his in dwelling spirit, his cooperation is mak ing his church a triumphant church, through whose activities the world is growing continuously better, and will continue to do so until cnrist e King dom shall be established upon the earth. nd the reiiru of righteousness aud p?ace shall prevail during tho niillcnius (the tlioutana years sposeu oi in jbcvciuhuu a figurative period of a longer or short er time), after which time Christ shall come, and this world, at least uniwi present material conditions, shall pass away. The other party, known as pre-mil-leuialists, hold many things in common with thoir opponeuts, but they declare that in spite of Christ's presence wtlli his church, that church is not a trium phant church, but that the world is steadily growing worse, and will con tinue to do so until Christ shall come aud end the present age, conquering his enemies by his heavenly forces, and calling out hiB faithful ones from amongst both the dead aud the living, aud with these he sliall estauiisn me 11,.,,;, ii.t 1,6m nil ta arth. thfl tllOUS- m,,v.... ...v . , ---- and years of his personal reign. Both of these views havo been defended by iiblical scholars in nil churches and in Ull iniHlS. iUIIIIV, muill been written upon ine question mm u. two thoufund years tl.e argument has intermittently aiisen and died down, It is our purpose to meution somo reasons why we are not able to accept thn nre-iuillenial view. First The scripture argument for nromill 'liiulism is based upon an ex tremely literal interpretation of bib lical passages which are found for the tho most part in books which are high ly figurative. For example the chief re liance for tho argument arc th. two books of Daniel and Revelation. iX is very doubtful whether any man on earth can correctly unravel all the mys teries of the visions found in those two portions of scripture. . Aud yet, the maiutenauco of this view uudvr con sideration depends upon an understand ing of these two books and a literal in terpretation of manifestly figurative passages. We cannot go into this scrip ture argument in detail. The luck of space forbids. But the only place in the Bible where the thousand years is men tioned is in tho twentieth chapter of Revelations. It is expressly stated hero tlint the saints are to live and reign with Christ evidently upon the earth for this thousand yars, while Satan is bound for that time, aud apparently as the pre-millunialists teach, there is no opposition to Christ s reign uuring that whole time. But, at the elose of that millenial period we read in this account (Rev. 20:7-9) that Satan is loosed, and he "gathers together the nations". Gog and Magog, "which re in the four quarters of tne eurth, the number of whom is as the sand of the sea," to battle with Christ and his followers. Now, if wo ore to tuko this literally, where havj these mult it ud ious peoples been during this thousand yearsf We have been told that the whole earth was to belong to Christ aud his people for this millenial era, and her.,; we find Hatan at the close of this era gathering this army as numerous "as tlu' saiid of the sea" to fight against the army of Christ. This whole account is manifestly figurative. Just like the description of the JNew Jcrusa Urn which begins in the next chapt;r. But if it is figurative the chief scrip tural prop of pre-millenialism is taken AWflV. The pre-millenial interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's mirage described In the aaeond chapter of Daniel is another ease iu point. According to this inter tation the head of eold was the Chald kingdom, the shoulders of silver the Vledo-Persian kingdom, tho torso of brass the Greek kingdom, the legs of irou, the Roman kingdom, and feet of iron and clay the Kingdom s accompany ing the break-up o'f the Roman domin ion. Now. according to this interpre tation the end of the world is coming during this dominion of the iron and the clar. The Chaldean domination en dured at the utmost about fifty years after the proplu-oy was given; then came the Medo-I'crsian for about two ! na,,.;. ,.lntViiii hv thn iirePK fctV TWO v--- - - ; centuries m.

D., the fall of Rome. Then this fifth era has lasted four or five centuries longer than all the rest put together! It has been a fayoritc saying with the advocatos of that theory that ' 1 we are. now living in the very toes of that image." . But the world must have boon living iu the "toes" for mure than a thousand yeass! Second Tho, history pf this doctrine is suficieut to make thoughtful people stop aud consider before accepting. Since the view is that the world is to grow worse and worse until Christ shall come and ond all tha wrong and misery every season of calamity has been look ed upon as an iudicatlou of the end, and in every see niany good people have thought their sufferings a Bure sign of tho coming of Christ. o wo lino ram writing to the Thessolnnlnns, the first books of the "New" testament to bo written, warning thcra not to look for Christ 's coming too soon, and implying (i Thess. 3:11-12) hat some hau al ready ceased working, thinking the end was at hand. In the nxt century tho Montnnists led off laige numbers of Christians by their preaching of this doctriue. Probably the year iuuu saw the irreatest single instance ot this do lusion, for the notion spread ovor r,u rono liko a prairie fir.o that the ond was coming in that year. The obsoBsion has broken out repeatedly since thon. Some still living can remember tho "Millor- ite" excitement in 1844. Men sold anu eave awav their possessions, and in New England especially whole eomniuuities went fairly wild over this delusion. When they found themselves mistaken, many lost tneir luuu m roiigiuu. ah., tou vears ago iu a little church in Mas sachusetts, known to tho writer, a group of people locked themselves into the church, beliving Christ was to come im mediately. They purposed to spend th.5 time in song and prayer until his ad vent. It was several days before they gave up hope and some of them went insane before a ordeal was ov. The Kinsudlites assert that thn events mark ing the cud of the world have actually w.m. It will be singular indeed if from their fanaticism many serious things do not result. Docs it Mem rea sonable that a corroct understanding of hn Bililo and a rational Interpretation of prophecy should produce such results as we have mentioned t Third The pessimistis outlook 01 tu pre-millenarian theory is contrary to 1 .... .1- -m .L. inula the optimistic auiiuae 01 w n.riatinnltr is a victorious religion. Christ is a eonoueror, and his ehurcV is tt conquering church. This faith ner ves the missionary for his sacrifices, and the reformer for his battles. 1 "Thy saints in all this gionous war Shall cononer tho' they dlo; Tlwy see tho triumph from afar, V. 4.1.1. i.1 kJn It Vllfftl ' ' jy iann inrj uu, "'ft--Tint'if nrK-millcniaUsm is correct, they are fighting a losing battle.
