IN previous chapters it has been proved that the Lord marked the time when the light should be given relative to the close of the great prophetic period leading to the investigative judgment; and that He accurately fulfilled the prediction at that time, that “knowledge shall be increased,” by raising up many who discovered that light; and that He also marked the time when the “parable of the fig-tree” should be learned, by raising up His teachers then and there to go forth and herald that parable to the world. 1 Just so accurately has He marked the point when the time message should swell to its loud cry; and just so accurately was that fulfilled. LDT 146.1

In Revelation, chapter 10, is a prophecy relating to this very subject: “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: and he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.... And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by Him that liveth forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets.” 2 LDT 146.2
