Description : Excerpt from Horae Apocalypticae, or a Commentary on the Apocalypse, Critical and Historical, Vol. 3: Including Also an Examination of the Chief Prophecies of Daniel To trace these marks of parallelism, as they occur, will V be an object with me in what follows: the correspond encies, I mean, between the prophecies of chapters vi, vii, viii, ix, x, xi, on the one hand, and those of chapters xii, xiii, xiv, on the other. So far as they have been fulfilled, - in other words up to the times now present, - to trace them will I think not be difficult: the subject-matter of the one series being chie y but not wholly secular, of the other chie y but not wholly ecclesiastical; and the inter mingling of subject in either case just sufficient to mark the parallelism and correspondency. - But of this enough. A sketch of the Scroll itself, thus divided, given near the beginning of my first Volume, best exhibits the whole to the reader's eye. It is time to proceed onward to the first vision of the new series itself - Let me only, ere doing so, premise one observation. It is probable that the subject may prove one not admitting of so much dramatic interest in the development, as much of what has gone before: the chronological ground having been already once gone over, and the work now required that chie y of deciphering the particulars of certain complicated hieroglyphics or enigmas. But, even admitting this, I pray the reader to believe that its importance is second to none, in the whole compass of the Apocalyptic prophecy. Especially at the present/ time there can be no over-estimating of it. Herein will be wisdom, I to understand the Beast's mystery. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that [both with mind and heart] observe the things written, in this part of the prophecy.
