Alleluia, for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.”

Revelation 19


The utter overthrow of Popery will fill even heaven itself with superior gladness and bring new glory to God. Let us daily pray for it.


When the false church is put away, the true church is revealed, and her time of glory comes.


After the revealing of the church comes the universal triumph of her king and his hosts.


The birds of prey were summoned to devour the slain, for those who fight against Jesus will assuredly perish.


However numerous or powerful the foes of Jesus, they must fall. Therefore let us be of good courage, and press forward in his name.

To thy great name, Almighty Lord,

We sacred honours pay,

And loud hosannahs shall proclaim,

The triumphs of the day.

Salvation and immortal praise

To our victorious King!

Let heav’n and earth, and rocks and seas,

With glad hosannahs ring.


Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection.”

Revelation 20


Does not this foretell that there shall come an age in which the agency of Satan in the world shall be suspended by divine power? This will go far to make that period of a thousand years, which is commonly called the millennium, a time of peace and holiness. Glory be to God, the Prince of Darkness is under the power of the Prince of Light. He shall not always triumph.


Surely this is a literal resurrection, and it is clear that the blessed dead will rise before the wicked. Let us strive to attain unto this resurrection.


Satan will come out of his prison unchanged; hell is not a reformatory; but his determined pride will not avail him, he must feel the terror of divine wrath. Vain will be the last furious struggle of the hosts of evil.


Good works will be cited as evidences of grace, and evil works as tokens of unbelief. This makes our daily conduct a solemn thing. How shall we bear to be thus weighed in the balances?

When, shrivelling like a parched scroll,

The flaming heavens together roll,

When louder yet and yet more dread

Sounds the high trump that wakes the dead;

Oh, on that day, that wrathful day,

When man to judgment wakes from clay,

Be thou, O Christ, the sinner’s stay,

Though earth and heaven shall pass away.

Lo! what a glorious sight appears

To our admiring eyes!

The former seas have pass’d away,

The former earth and skies.

From heav’n the New Jerus’lem comes,

All worthy of its Lord;

See all things now at length renew’d,

And paradise restor’d!

Attending angels shout for joy,

And the bright armies sing;

Mortals! behold the sacred seat

Of your descending King!
