prophecy of Daniel and of Revelation r'ur"'"" ,v or" .mmnui.-eiy to vor
hat been fulfilled, we will leave iUmta tbo, meo "b w,re 'urging
papacy for a short time and take up nd klll,Df tho ",nt ' th
another line of prophecy found In the
Hook of Revelation.
In tbe ninth chapter of that book
you And It stated that "tho fifth angel
sounded, and I saw itar UU from
heaven unto the earth; and to blra
was given tho key of the bottomlcts
pit, And he opetcd tbe bottomless pit;
and there arose a smoke out of the pit,
a the smoke of a great furnace; and
the tun ar.d the ale were darkened by
re on of tho smoke of tho pit. And
there cstno out of the smoke locust
upon tho earth; and unto them was
given power, at tho scorpions of the
earth have power, And It wa com
msndtd them that they should not
hurt the grass of the earth, neither
any green thing, neither any tree; but
TIIK SEAL OF GOD IN Titr.iit fouie-
UK. Aim. And to them it wa given
that they should not kill them, but
that they should be tormented live
months; and tholr torment wa a the
torment of a toorplon, whon he strlkcth
a man." This prophecy does rot des
cribe the papacy. It differs In two
essential points from both the other
prophuclos which we have seen point
out and refer to the papacy. The first
difference we notice U, the beasts that
represent the papacy have been terri
ble, dcitructivr, and wUe, while this
power referred to In t'.ie ninth chapter
of Revelation Is plctored weak, able
only to torment, or bother, or barrass.
Tbe other difference I, the papacy
wa to make war against the taints of
the Most High, while this new power
wa to torment only those men who
had not the seal of God In their foro-
heads. Another and just at Important
difference ll the time each power wai
to act independently of all other pow
en and government. And, again, tbe
papacy wat to overcome, to kill the
taint! of the Most High, while this
now power wai not given power to
kill but to torment.

fi l ow a little farther tbe wholo thing
will be made perfectly clear.
At a tlmo when the papal power was
welding tbo fettort of mental tlavery
and tuperstltlon on the world, the groat
fabric of government of Asia tottored
and foil. New schemes of government
were tried, but none were satisfactory,
Suddenly a weak band broke away and
- "sisn......n.ww
History tell u that the power that
os mo eut of Asia and settled In Kurope
at that time Is what I now called Tur
key. If I am not mistaken tbe Amer
ican I .nd Kncyclor iclla Hrltannlca says
their advent Into Euroupe occurred
"about the second decade of the 13th
ontury." Other historians are also
uncertain ss to the exact date of their
settling In Kurope, but Gibbon, who U
not regarded with much favor by tbe
papacy, marvel at the curious
fate that would, preirve, not only
tho year but the day and the month,
when they be ok mo a nation. He places
the date of the founding of the Turkish
empire a July 27, 1209, A it is tbe
only positive date v.e have seen in his
tory, a to when Turkey wa founded,
wo will take It as the starting point,
Then, if tho prophecy refers to "The
8lok Man of the fCast," to the unspeak-
ab'o Turk, be wis to have power to
torment "only those men which have
not the teal of God In their forehead,"'
If any men wore sealed In their fore
heads in the past they must have been
those whom the papacy killed, and it
would seem simply Justice for God lo
allow a power to arUe and torment
tho very power that wa wearing out
III taint. At any rate that Is what
happened. Tbe Turks constantly rav
aged the frontier but were never able
lo kill or ouertbrow the papacy. At
tint the Turks were a mere band of
marauders, and It was not until about
the middle of tho fifteenth century that
they had a klnguand became a power
among the nations of the world.
The tlmo, or duration of the perioJ,
that the Turk were to be ablo to only
torment those men who had not been
sealed In their foreheads by God, was
five months, Asa Hlble month con
tained :K)dsy, Ave months would con
tain l.'-O days. It was shown In the
last article that In prophetic time a
day was to be counted a year. Then,
the Turkish marauders were to torment
the non-chrlstlans 150 years before
a king was set over them. Lotus see

verse I rendtred thu: Thefuraa

ecy yet to account for. An hour I one

In prophecy Is a year, then the hour In
prophecy would mean tho ore twenty
fourth part of a year. One twenty
fourth part of .KIO Is 15; or one-half of a
month. And as the start of the em
pire aa July 27, It 1 nccosiary to add
to that date thlt one-half month or 15

to Oil It out, take four of thoso fifteen
dsyt, which will leave u 1 1 day to go
Into August with; and Aug. II, 1810, li
tbe very day when Turkey ceased to b
an Independent power, It was on that
day that the acceptance by Turkey of
the peace arranged by Kng'and and
otber European powen with Egypt wa
placed In the hand ol tho representa
tive of the government of Egypt, and
from which time the 8ullan bai been
known a "The Sick Mai of the East."
The history of Turkey and thli
prophecy, both ai to conduct and date,
are so undeniable alike that It seems
Impossible to make a mistake In de
ciding that Turkey Is the power which
wa described locust In the ninth
chapter of Revelation, and a the an
gels wnlish were loosed to slay the third
part of men.
