The Haggai Prophecy.

la Grange, Ky., Dec. 9, 1861.
In one of the Cincinnati papers of a recent date I find the following:

A remarkable Prophecy.--One of the most striking instances of the fulfilment of prophecy, says the Boston Christian Advocate, was pointed out to us lately by an eminent Baptist divine. It occurs in the 8th, 10th, and 21st verses of Haggai ch. IV.:

Behold, there shall be rebellion in the South, a rebellion of strong men and archers, of chariots and bright shields; and the blast of the trumpet shall awaken the land, and the nations shall be astonished thereat.

And lo, behold, because of the sin of the South, her mighty men shall be as babes, her gates shall be destroyed utterly, saith the Lord; yea, utterly destroyed shall be her gates, and her rice fields shall be wasted, and her slaves set free.

And behold, great ships from the North shall devour her pride, and a storm from the West shall lay waste her habitations. Yea, saith the Lord, and her dominion will be broken.


Now if that Divine can find Chapter IV., or any such prophecy as the above in Haggai, his Bible must be a new edition. It will not do for these eminent Divines to know so much.
