the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and
Come ye, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths : for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem,” (Isaiah ii. 2, and Micah iv. 1, 2.); and then it will be thought no strange thing to go to Jerusalem. For the Prophecy of Zechariah will come to pass as follows :“ And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up and come not, that have no* rain : there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. (Zec. xiv. 16–18.) “And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another,
* But whose land is watered by the overflowing of the Nile.
shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.” (Isaiah lxvi. 23.)
7th. “The Chronology of Daniel's Sacred Numbers,” showing the impossibility of arriving at the truth from external evidence, but that from the internal evidence of the vision itself, there is great wisdom in dating back from the Crucifixion in the “ Midst of the last Week,” or from the present Christian Era; in that way the truth may be arrived at, if our present chronology be correct: and the time for the manifestation of the Shechinah, and God's glorious and everlasting Kingdom being set up, will be about the year 1847.

I particularly and affectionately invite the attention of all true-hearted Christians who really love Israel, to the distressed condition of the Jews in the Holy City, most of whom are entirely dependent upon the charitable contributions of their brethren in other parts of the world. Remember it is God's own words, “That he that blesseth thee shall be blessed,” and God cannot fail to fulfil this promise without destroying his attribute of truth; and if his attributes be destroyed, he ceases to exist as God. And again, “ They shall prosper that love thee,” (Psalm cxxii. 6;) and “insomuch as ye
have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” I understand there are many Jews in Jerusalem who have fled from the persecution of the Emperor of Russia, and are reduced to great destitution and suffering. I never felt as if I could beg with so much assurance and confidence before, knowing well that God will be no man's debtor ; and that it will be a
to the ceiver, but a far greater to the giver. (See Psalm xli. 1.) Any donation will therefore be thankfully received, and faithfully appropriated by the Author, who expects to set off for Jerusalem from this city by the middle of August, 1844.
