PASTOR OF THE REFORMED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH,
Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secrets unto his servants the prophets. AMOS.
But the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. DANIEL.

TO those who heard the Lectures on Prophecy delivered from the pulpit, and at whose solicitation the resolution to give them publicity from the press was adopted, the author owes an explanation.
It was impossible to comprise in one volume of moderate size the whole of his Discourses on the Apocalypse: and it would be indiscreet to present to the subscribers two volumes instead of one. He has pursued a middle course. He has comprised, so far as the text would admit of it, the prospective history of modern times, in the Lectures which he has published; and he has reserved the remaining Lectures for a subsequent publication at a convenient time.
