PART VI.

FROM APOC. XIV. 6, AND XVI. 13, TO THE END.

THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE.

FROM A.D. 1830 TO THE MILLENNIUM AND FINAL JUDGMENT.

CHAPTER I.

REVIEW OF THE EVIDENCE IN THE PARTS PRECEDING ;

AND HIGH PROBABILITY OF OUR PRESENT
POSITION BEING UNDER THE LATTER

HALF OF THE SIXTH VIAL.

We are now about to enter on the vith and last part of this Commentary :-a Part to which, having mainly reference to things future, very much of a new character must of course attach: as we shall no longer (at least after the present and next chapters) have the verifying test to appeal to, point by point, of agreeing prophecy and history : but only from the prediction itself to infer, with more or less of the uncertainty of conjecture, the nature of the things predicted. - Preparatorily, however, to entering on this new field of inquiry, I have to request the reader to look back with me; and to consider attentively (though as much as possible in brief) each principal step of the way we have travelled thus far, and the strength and sufficiency of the evidence that has guided us on it. It will be of infinite advantage towards a right commencement of the consideration of the future, if we enter on it with a deliberate and thorough conviction of our having been right all along on main points in our interpretation
