Daniel's Great Prophecy
Excerpt from Daniel's Great Prophecy: The Eastern Question, the KingdomThe Book of Daniel was written to prefigure, in outline, the course of history from the Babylonian exile to the second coming of Christ, and to reveal the age of millennial glory "underneath all heavens," following that event. It, therefore, exhibits the character of our own times, as part of the "Times of the Gentiles," which is really the title of the whole book. As in the prophet's day so in ours the kingdom of God is in conflict with the kingdoms of the world; and, as in our Lord's day, is assaulted by all the forces of evil, the assailants seeking to snatch it away by violence. A contemplation of both civil and ecclesiastical events, during the past five years - not to speak of the whole century - only confirms the truth that the same policies that governed the empires and religious establishments of the ancient world, in their official life, and continuously since the introduction of Christianity, exist in our own day, and demonstrates the fact, made clear in Daniel's pages as elsewhere in both Testaments, that the World-Power remains essentially unchanged, notwithstanding its nominal profession of Christianity, and will do so till overthrown by the coming of the Son of Man.It was a consideration of the events current in our own day, and viewed in the light of the "sure word of prophecy," that induced the writer, though in the midst of much mental and physical suffering, to gather up some results of his past labors, and with the impressions received from recent events present them in a series of articles, to the editors of "Our Hope," who generously allowed space for their publication in the Monthly, devoted to the movement in behalf of Israel, not alone in New York, but in both hemispheres.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
