28 Hearken, O ye nations of the earth, and hear  the words of that God who made you.
29 O ye nations of the earth, how often would I  have gathered you, together as a hen gathereth her  chickens under her wings, but ye would not?
30 How oft have I called upon you by the mouth  of my servants; and by the ministering of angels;  and by mine own voice; and by the voice of thun derings; and by the voice of lightnings; and by the  voice of tempests; and by the voice of earthquakes;  and great hail-storms; and by the voice of famines,  and pestilences of every kind; and by the great  sound of a trump; and by the voice of judgment;  and by the voice of mercy all the day long; and by  the voice of glory, and honor, and the riches of eter nal life; and would have saved you with an ever lasting salvation, but ye would not?
31 Behold the day has come, when the cup of the  wrath of mine indignation, is full.
32 Behold, verily I say unto you, that these are  the words of the Lord your God:
33 Wherefore, labor ye, labor ye, in my vineyard  for the last time:
34 For the last time call ye upon the inhabitants  of the earth, for in mine own due time will I come  upon the earth in judgment:
35 And my people shall be redeemed and shall  reign with me on earth:
36 For the great Millennial, which I have spoken  by the mouth of my servants, shall come;
37 For satan shall be bound; and when he is  loosed again, he shall only reign for a little season,  and then cometh the end of the earth:
38 And he that liveth in righteousness, shall be  changed in the twinkling of an eye; [p. 99]
