[blocks in formation]

In our previous articles on this subject, we have shown that Christ's second coming is to take place at the time of the destruction of the antichristian powers, of the resurrection of the holy dead, and of the restoration of the Israelites.

IV. There is a large class of passages in which it is shown with equal distinctness and emphasis that its time is to be that of the conversion of the Gentiles, and the extension of his empire over the whole world. Of these, Psalms ii., lxxii., and cx., are of an earlier date than any that we have hitherto quoted, and they, with the other Messianic Psalms, like Dan. vii. 13, 14, Zech. xiv. 9, and Rev. xi. 15, indicate that Christ is, at his second coming, to be invested with the dominion of the earth; that the kings of the nations are then to be gathered together to prevent the establishment of his kingdom; that he is to judge and destroy them and their hosts; and that he is immediately thereafter to bring all the tribes of the earth to submission to his sceptre, raise them to exalted knowledge, and crown them with peace and blessedness. VOL. VII.-NO. I.
