    THE SECOND WOE

    “And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice saying to the sixth angel, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river, Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed which were prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year, to slay the third part of men” [that is, blot out the Greek division of the Roman empire]. Revelation 9:13-15. This trumpet, represented by the second horseman, commenced July 27th, 1449, when the 150 years of the previous one ended. Its chief characteristic was the use of gunpowder and fire-arms, for purposes of war, which were then but recently introduced. Mark the apostle’s description: “Out of their mouth issued fire and smoke and brimstone.” The time designated for its continuance was one day, that is, one prophetic day, or one year; one month, or 30 days, 30 years; one year, or 360 days, 360 years; and one hour, one 24th part of a prophetic day, or 15 days; amounting in all to 391 years and 15 days. It ended August 11th, 1840; AND AT THAT TIME THE OTTOMAN SUPREMACY DID CEASE! This calculation was made by J. Litch, in 1838. Its exact accomplishment two years later gave a mighty impulse to the Advent movement. It should have no less force now. “The second woe is past, and behold the third woe cometh quickly.” Revelation 11:14.KPC 43.3
