    CONCLUDING REMARKS

    In my own mind the conclusion is irresistible, that the final doom of all the impenitent and unbelieving, is that they shall utterly perish - shall be “destroyed forever” - their “end” is to be “burned up, root and branch,” with “fire unquenchable” - they shall not have everlasting life, or being, but be “punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord,” the universe of God will be purified not only from sin, but sinners - and “the works of the devil” will be destroyed, exterminated; but “blessed and holy is he who hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power.” Then there will be a “new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth are passed away.” “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying; neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things have passed away.”SSII 63.1

    The day when these tremendous scenes will transpire, I conceive, “is nigh, even at the doors.” Yes, the time is at hand, when the wrath of God will be revealed from heaven - a day, described by the apostle, of “indignation and wrath; tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that doeth evil.” Then they that have “sinned without law shall also perish without law;” and a not less fearful doom awaits those that have sinned in the light of the law and gospel both.SSII 63.2

    That awful day will soon overtake us; and who may abide the day of his coming? Behold, that day “shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, and all that do wickedly will be stubble;” as incapable of resisting the judgment that shall come upon them, as stubble is to resist the devouring flame.SSII 64.1

    Let us be wise now, therefore, and prepare to meet God. “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way when his wrath is kindled but a little.” “But blessed are all they that put their trust in him.”SSII 64.2
