set aside, but is soon to be revived, a period of time which will

be 2,000 years in length (two days). Then, the weekly Sabbath

will be typical of the peace on the third day, a 1,000 year Sab-

bath. At this time, the inscription at the United Nations build-

ing in New York will be fulfilled:

“…and they shall beat their

swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks:

nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they
