OF EARTH'S HISTORY is th« near establishment of ODD'S kingdom aroonf men; l biit, strange to aay. this dominating theme of the Bible has been almost entirely overlooked bv those who profess the Christian religion. Everyone cf the inspired writers testified concerning a time of everlasting happiness for the human race-- "times'of restoration" of l*»t bless- , ings and posaessiont. Jesus and His Apostles preached that thit gospel of blessing is for the rest majority not .-· meitafe of woe for all except a few. : · . - . - . ' , . ,,, . . In this tlirillin'r and reassuring lector* the spewr will bring positive, proof; by linRing Bible prophecies with th* pretenl-day events, that the Kingdom of Messiah will soon completely supplant the existing rulerthip of earth and becanM of this fact, there are millicua of people who will actually never .«o into;, the grave. The lecture is not a dry.discusslou of theology, nor an attempt to eon- vert you I o some new, fanatical religion, but It is a glorious proclamation of "this Gospel of the Klnudora" which 4eius said must ba preached in all the world for a witness before the end comes.
