Illustration of Scripture,
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was
given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded,
for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had
not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received
his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they ezesan,
lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of
the dead, anazesan, lived not again till the thousand years were
finished. This is the first anastasei, resurrection. Blessed and holy
is he that hath part in the first anastasei, resurrection ; on such the
second death hath no power; but they shall be priests of God,
and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”—Rev.

went away grieved: for he had great possessions.”—Mark X., 21,

" He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am ? And Simon
Peter answered and said, Thou art Christ, the Son of the
living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art
thou, Simon Bar-jona ; for flesh and blood hath not revealed it
unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say unto
thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my
church ; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”—Matt.
The Vision of the Olive-trees,
Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive.
trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side
thereof? And I answered again, and said unto him, What are
these two olive-branches which through the two golden pipes
empty the golden oil out of themselves? And he answered me
and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my
Lord. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand
by the Lord of the whole earth.”—Zech. iv., 11-14.
