Beloved Reader:—The following work, an exposition of the twentieth chapter of the Revelation to the Apostle John, was written by Peter Jan Twisk, a minister of the Baptizo-minded Church, who lived about the year A. D. 1600. It was written in the Holland or Dutch language, and later by a lover of the truth translated into German, and inasmuch as in our time the views concerning the Jewish kingdom are understood so differently, I have been prompted to interest myself in the matter, and believe that I am rendering an acceptable service to all who are seeking after the unadulterated truth, by re-publishing this work in the German language. May the kind reader prove all things with the word of God, retain that which is good, and give God the glory. The first German edition that we have any knowledge of was published by Ulrich & Schultze, Odessa, Russia, in 1875. The translator of the first English edition of this valuable work by P. J. Twisk was prompted to the translation of this booklet on the “Kingdom of Peace” by a desire to become more fully acquainted with the subject and the arguments therein presented for the reason that he could not understand the views on this subject as they are maintained by many of our modern theologians. After the translation was completed, a brother from Oklahoma made an earnest appeal to have the little work printed and published in the English language and offered to make a very liberal contribution toward the expense. Thus it transpires that one of the active workers of the kingdom of Christ of three centuries ago, though long since dead, still speaks to us in our English language. May the Lord bless the work and may it go forth to the edifying of many souls. THE TRANSLATOR. Elkhart, Indiana, May 8, 1913.
