The Rev. John Cumming, D.D., is now the great pulpit orator of London, as Edward Irving was somo twenty years since. But very different is the Doctor to that strange, wonderfully eloquent, but erratic man. There could not by possibility be a greater contrast. The one all fire, enthusiasm, and semimadness; the other a man of chastened energy and convincing calmness. The one like a meteor, flashing across a troubled sky, and then vanishing suddenly in the darkness; the other like a silvo: star, shining serenely, and illuminating our pathway with its steady ray. He is looked upon as the great champion of Protestantism in its purest form.

His great work on the "Apocalypse," upon which his high reputation as a writer rests, having a.ready reached its fifteenth edition in England, while his " Lectures on the Miracles," and those on "Daniel," have passed through six editions of 1000 copies each, and his " Lectures on the Parables" through four editions, all within a comparatively short time.

PREFACE.

This volume is an attempt to expound Apocalyptic prophecies of scenes, events, and glory yet to come. The Author believes that these are about to emerge far sooner than many

believe. He desires that more may be found with their lamps burning and their loins girt, and ready to meet the Lord. He longs to attract a greater number from the too ardent pursuit of this world, to great, permanent, and all but instant things, by unfolding their greater beauty, glory, and magnificence; and thus displacing the earthly preference by the appliance of heavenly hopes.

It is his sincere prayer that the reader may enjoy a portion at least of the pleasure felt by the writer in studying and expounding these parts of the Apocalypse. His only regret has been that time was so short, and that the Apocalypse has an end. He trusts he has shown no presumption in endeavouring to expound parts of this blessed Book, very little opened up, either in the pulpit or by the press. He is sure that the precious truths he has unfolded will, by the blessing of the Spirit of God, produce good fruit; and that the hopes, drawn from the future and the
