THE SECOND ADVENT

     We preach not one advent only of Christ, but a second also, far more glorious than the former.  For the former gave to view His patience, but the latter will bring with it the crown and glory of the Divine Kingdom.   

     He who wrought marvelous things when He came in humility cannot be viewed with all the great terribleness He shall come with when He appeareth in the mightiness of His Majesty. 

     The order of His First Advent may be viewed and estimated in so far as in coming to redeem carnal beings;  He abated the greatness of His Divinity to carnal eyes.  But who may bear the terrors of His Highness when, with the power of the Second Advent in exercising judgment by fire, He shall glow in the Majesty of His power.  

      The kingdom of God has begun to be nigh at hand;  reward of life and joy of eternal salvation and perpetual happiness and possession of Paradise, lost by the primal transgression, already, while the world passes away, are coming nigh.
