VOL. II.

CHAP. VII. ·

OF THE FOUR FIRST APOCALYPTIC TRUMPETS.

I. THE seventh seal comprehends all the seven trumpets. These may be divided into the four, which prepare the way for the revelation of the man of sin; and the three, which comprehend the whole history of the Apostasy in its dominant state both in the East and in the West, and which are styled woe-trumpets. The silence at the opening of the seventh seal indicates the anxious expectation of the troubles about to be produced by the sounding of the trumpets. p. 3.

II. By the sounding of the four first trumpets, he, that letted or prevented the revelation of the man of sin, is taken out of the way. p. 7,

1. Import of the phrase the third part. At the sounding of the first trumpet, the northern nations, under Alaric, Radagaisus, and Attila, overrun the Roman empire, preparatory to the subversion of its Western third part.

p. 7.

2. At the sounding of the second, Genseric king of the Vandals assaults the Western Empire from the south, and hurls it from its base into the figurative sea, like a huge blazing mountain. p. 17.

3. At the sounding of the third, the line of the western Cesars becomes extinct in the person of Augustulus. p. 19.

4. At the sounding of the fourth, the political luminaries of the western third part of the Roman empire expe▾ rience a total eclipse. p. 23.

OF THE THREE LAST APOCALYPTIC TRUMPETS, OR, AS THEY
ARE PECULIARLY STYLED, THE THREE WOE TRUMPETS.

CHAP. VIII.

THE prophecy here divides into two distinct lines, treating severally of the eastern and western branches of the great Apostasy. The first of the three woe-trumpets describes the commencement of the dominance of the two-fold Apostasy: the second represents it in the zenith of its power, until the mani festation of Antichrist: the third exhibits its downfall, displaying at the same time the multiplied horrors of the harvest and the vintage of the Lord, or the uncontrouled reign of the atheistical king and his subsequent destruction along with the other enemies of God. p. 26.

CHAP. IX.

CONCERNING THE EFFECTS OF THE TWO FIRST WOE-
TRUMPETS IN THE EAST.

AT

the sounding of the fifth trumpet, or the first woe-
trumpet, in the East, the apostate star of Rome falls
from heaven; opens the pit of the abyss; and lets out
the impostor Mohammed with his Saracenic locusts.
p. 28.

2. At the sounding of the sixth trumpet, or the second woe trumpet, the four sultanies of the Turkish horsemen are loosed from the river Euphrates; and, in due season, slay the third part of men, or subvert the Constantinopolitan monarchy. p. 37.

CHAP. X.

OCNTENTS OF THE LITTLE BOOK-HISTORY OF THE WESTERN APOSTASY UNDER THE THREE WOE-TRUMPETS.

"

THE little book comprehends the eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth, chapters of the Revelation. These chapters, in point of chronology, run parallel to each other, forming a complete history of the western Apostasy. p. 45.

1. The first describes the prophesying of the witnesses during the 1260 years. p. 46.

2. The second describes the war of the infernal dragon with the mystic woman the Church, during the same period. p. 47.

3. The third describes the actions of the two apocalyptic beasts during the same period. p. 47.

4. The fourth describes the internal state of the true Church during the same period, and the harvest and the vintage of God's wrath. p. 48.

The contents therefore of the little book may be properly divided into five sections: 1. The prophesying of the witnesses; 2. The war of the dragon with the woman; 3. The history of the ten-horned beast of the sea; 4. The history of the twohorned beast of the earth; 5. The collateral history of the true Church, of the Reformation, and of the harvest and vintage of God's wrath. p. 49.
