: Gems Of Divine Mysteries

This is the text of that which was revealed aforetime in the first

Gospel, according to Matthew, regarding the signs that must needs herald

the advent of the One Who shall come after Him. He saith: "And woe unto

them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days...",(5)

until the mystic Dove, singing in the midmost heart of eternity, and the

celestial Bird, warbling upon the Divine Lote-Tree, saith: "Immediately

after the oppression of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon

shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the

powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then shall appear the sign of

the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth

mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven

with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great

sound of a trumpet."(6)
