1st. An account of the term Millennium, its import and meaning, . . . .13
2d. Shall show that such a period was expected, by the prophets, the Jewish Rabbins, and doctors, as the grand ultimo of the Messiah's reign on earth—and is now in expectancy, by the churches, according to the scripture promises, 1
3d. Shall give a view of the wonderful signs of the times which preceded the great deluge and the birth of Christ: a curious and interesting account of Herod the Great, who put to death the infants of Jerusalem. Also a minute description of the Ark, and of the animals saved in it—proving it amply sufficient to contain all the scriptures state it did, 53
4th, Shall exhibit the signs of our own times which clearly indicate the Millennium nigh at hand, but must be preceded, by one of its effects, of the power of the great God; such as man has not witnessed since the world began, 79
5th. Shall represent the probable state of the wicked part of mankind, just previous to the Millennium; in which division will be given an account of Rome pagan and Rome papal, which subjects arc signified in the 13th and 17th chapters of Revelations, .... 87
6th. The way and manner considered, in which Godwin probably remove the wicked from the earth, that the Millennij^S um may commence, for they shall not see that glorious sun y^" arise, nor enter that land of promise, . . 163
I 7th. Will show when the Millennium will come, by a view of ^ the ancient Jewish Sabbaths, an exhibition of which is ex
ceedingly interesting, in reference to that day. And as / analagous to the same point, shall present a view of natural J- and supernatural periodical recurrences. And shall give an ff illustration of the three visions in the book of Daniel as far / - as they refer to the time when the sanctuary shall be clean
«ed, or when the Millennium shall arrive, 181
8th. An account of the first resurrection, and the subsequent "happiness of all people; with which will be connected arguments to prove that all moral and natural evil shall cease a thousand years from the earth; and that it was the original intention of the Creator to clothe our first parents, whether they stood or fell, . 1 . . 258
Oth Division embraces a position that man when he fell, lost his extraordinary power or government over the animal kingdom, and became exposed to their natural fury, but in the Millennium shall recover his government again, 287
10th Division contains arguments to prove, that neither the disposition nor death of the animal creation was affected by man's fall into sin, as is believed by many, but the true reason of their death is assigned, .. . . 299
11th. The sentiment which embraces the opinion, that all the animal creation shall arise from the dead, to be remunerated for their suffemigs, which by some is said to be occasioned by the sin of man, refuted, . . . 805
12th Division exhibits a view of the vast multiplication of mankind during the Millennium, and of their political state: also who they are who will attempt to make war upon the camp of the saints, called Gog and Magog; and why Sa- . tan must be loosed for a little season after the Millennium is passed by: and in what manner it is likely they will attempt their attack of the saints, . . . 316
13th Division embraces a view of the resurrection of the wicked dead after the Millennium, and their miserable condition; and endeavours a description of the earth's dissolution, and in what manner the elements will operate oa each other, so that a general conflagration may take place, and what shall be its final end, . . . 343
14th Division embraces a view of the promised new creation, which is to succeed the destruction of this system. "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold I make all things nesv." Rev. xxi. 5, . , , . , 366
