HAVE you not noticed that in the history of this planet God turns a leaf about
EVERY TWO THOUSAND YEARS?
God turned a leaf, and this world was fitted for human residence. About two thousand more years passed along and God turned another leaf, and it was the Deluge. About two thousand more years passed on, and it was the appearance of Christ. Almost two thousand more years have past by, and He will probably soon turn another leaf. What it shall be I cannot say. It may be the demolition of all these monstrosities of turpitude, and the establishment of righteousness in all the earth. He can do it, and he will do it. I am as confident as if it were already accomplished.—Talmadge.
