shall tremble, and the trump of God shall sound both long and  loud, and shall say to the sleeping nations: Ye saints arise  and live: Ye sinners stay and sleep until I shall call again:  wherefore gird up your loins, least ye be found among the  wicked. Lift up your voices and spare not. Call upon the  nations to repent, both old and young, both bond and free;  saying, Prepare yourselves for the great day of the Lord: for  if I, who am a man, do lift up my voice and call upon you to  repent, and ye hate me, what will ye say when the day com eth when the thunders shall utter their voices from the ends  of the earth, speaking to the ears of all that live, saying: Re pent, and prepare for the great day of the Lord? yea, and  again, when the lightnings shall streak forth from the east un to the west, and shall utter forth their voices unto all that live,  and make the ears of all tingle, that hear, saying these words:  Repent ye, for the great day of the Lord is come?
6 And again, the Lord shall utter his voice out of heaven,  saying: Hearken, O ye nations of the earth, and hear the  words of that God who made you. O ye nations of the earth,  how often would I have gathered you together as a hen gath ereth her chickens under her wings, but ye would not? 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 thunderings; and by the voice of lightnings;  and by the voice of tempests; and by the voice of earth quakes; and great hailstorms; 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 eternal life; and would have saved you with  an everlasting salvation, but ye would not? Behold the day has  come, when the cup of the wrath of mine indignation is full.
7 Behold, verily I say unto you, that these are the words of  the Lord your God: wherefore, labor ye, labor ye, in my vine yard for the last time: for the last time call upon the inhabit ants of the earth, for in mine own due time will I come upon  the earth in judgment: and my people shall be redeemed and  shall reign with me on earth: for the great Millennial, which I  have spoken by the mouth of my servants, shall come; for sa tan shall be bound; and when he is loosed again, he shall on ly reign for a little season, and then cometh the end of the  earth: and he that liveth in righteousness, shall be changed  in the twinkling of an eye; and the earth shall pass away so  as by fire; and the wicked shall go away into unquenchable  fire; and their end no man knoweth, on earth, nor ever shall  know, until they come before me in judgment. [p. 127]
shall tremble, and the trump of God shall sound both long and loud, and shall say to the sleeping nations: Ye saints arise and live: Ye sinners stay and sleep until I shall call again: wherefore gird up your loins, least ye be found among the wicked. Lift up your voices and spare not. Call upon the nations to repent, both old and young, both bond and free; saying, Prepare yourselves for the great day of the Lord: for if I, who am a man, do lift up my voice and call upon you to repent, and ye hate me, what will ye say when the day cometh when the thunders shall utter their voices from the ends of the earth, speaking to the ears of all that live, saying: Repent, and prepare for the great day of the Lord? yea, and again, when the lightnings shall streak forth from the east unto the west, and shall utter forth their voices unto all that live, and make the ears of all tingle, that hear, saying these words: Repent ye, for the great day of the Lord is come?
6 And again, the Lord shall utter his voice out of heaven, saying: Hearken, O ye nations of the earth, and hear the words of that God who made you. 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? 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 thunderings; and by the voice of lightnings; and by the voice of tempests; and by the voice of earthquakes; and great hailstorms; 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 eternal life; and would have saved you with an everlasting salvation, but ye would not? Behold the day has come, when the cup of the wrath of mine indignation is full.
7 Behold, verily I say unto you, that these are the words of the Lord your God: wherefore, labor ye, labor ye, in my vineyard for the last time: for the last time call upon the inhabitants of the earth, for in mine own due time will I come upon the earth in judgment: and my people shall be redeemed and shall reign with me on earth: for the great Millennial, which I have spoken by the mouth of my servants, shall come; 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: and he that liveth in righteousness, shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye; and the earth shall pass away so as by fire; and the wicked shall go away into unquenchable fire; and their end no man knoweth, on earth, nor ever shall know, until they come before me in judgment.
