THINGS COMING ON THE EARTH.
THE REV. JOHN CUMMING, D.D., F.R.S.E.
MINISTER OF THE SCOTTISH NATIONAL CHURCH,
CROWN COURT, COVENT GARDEN.
“A time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation."-Dan. xii. 1.
“There shall be great tribulation."
LONDON: RICHARD BENTLEY.
M DCCC LX.
This volume of “ THE GREAT TRIBULATION” contains Dr. Cumming's second and concluding series of lectures on this momentous subject. These lectures, which in the opinion of the best theological critics rank among the most important of recent contributions to the Literature of the Prophecies, differ somewhat from those that precede them; for while the former, in the words of the author, "deal with the nature and marks of THE GREAT TRIBULATION," the latter relate to the character and condition, the hopes, happiness, and destiny of the People of God—the Blessed to whom belong the promises of Scripture, and who will ome out of THE GREAT TRIBULATION, like gold from the furnace, refined and purified. There will be found in this part much to cheer, animate, and sustain them, in circumstances of unprecedented trouble.
