P. 16


                   verse, well turned to alarm us, that these "ravening wolves" really do appear before us

                   in sheep's clothing:

                   Not every one that saith unto me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven;
                   but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

                   Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in

                   thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?
                   And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: Depart  from me, ye that work

                   iniquity .
                     We can, therefore, conclude, that neither prophecies that come to pass, nor miracles

                   performed,  are  a  safeguard  against  "ravening  wolves".  It  is  important  to  know  this,

                   because the indication we are given is precise.
                     Jesus says that the end will come when the Gospel will be preached throughout the

                   world . Today, this is an accomplished fact. And at that time - our time:
                   There  shall  arise  false  Christs,  and  false  prophets,  and  shall  show  great  miracles  and
                   prodigies, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect .

                                                          *      *

                     In the present volume, we will discuss at length, our epoch, which is astride of the

                   Cycle of the Son, and that of the Holy Ghost. We will call it the transitional Period.
