THE MORNING DAWNS THE SHADOWS FLEE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 April 1914

THE MORNING DAWNS THE SHADOWS FLEE. BY PASTOR RUSSELL. Text: Isa. xxxv. 1: "The desert shall re- I joice, and blossom as the rose." He made the rather startling declaration that the Millennium is already here, that chronology proves that we have been living under some of its blessings for the past thirty-eight years, and that our modern conveniences and progress are attributable to the beginning of the rolling away of the curse, and the substitution of the Divine blessing. The reign of Messiah for a thousand years will not only blind Satan and hinder the further deception of mankind, but also bring light, knowledge, illumination, to very corner of the earth. He pointed out the beginning of these blessings as already with us; but they are only the faint dawn ings of the greater light which will flood the world, when the great Sun of Righ teousness, Emmanuel's Kingdom, shall be manifested above the horizon. Yet- we must not expect all sunshine. A great cloud is immediately before us, ...
