try them: or, try by them

Geneva Study Bible

And some of them {r} of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

(r) That is, of those that fear God and will lose their life for the defence of true religion. Signifying also that the Church must continually be tried and purged, and ought to look for one persecution after another: for God has appointed the time, and therefore we must obey.

Scofield Reference Notes

[1] the time of the end

Here the prophetic foreview, having traced the history of the two parts of Alexander's empire which had to do with Palestine and the Jews, viz. Syria and Egypt, to the time of Antiochus Epiphanes, and having described his career, overleaps the centuries to "the time of the end," when he of whom Antiochus Epiphanes was a type, the "little horn" of Dan 7:8 the "Beast out of the sea" of Rev 13:4-10 shall appear (cf) See Scofield Note: "Dan 7:8". Prophecy does not concern itself with history as such, but only with history as it affects Israel and the Holy Land. Antiochus Epiphanes was insignificant as compared with historical personages whom the Bible does not mention, but he scourged the covenant people and defiled God's altar, thus coming into prophetic light. From verse 36 the "little horn" of Dan 7:8,24-26 fills the scene. His prosperity lasts until "the indignation" (the "time of trouble" of Dan 12:1 Mt 24:21 is accomplished (Dan 11:36). This is parallel with Rev 17:10-14 19:19-21. Dan 11:37-45 supply details not mentioned in the N.T. The expression "God of his fathers" (Dan 11:37) has been held to indicate that the "king" is an apostate Jew, but this does not accord with Dan 9:26 which was fulfilled by the Gentile armies of Rome. The "little horn" is an apostate, but from Christianity, not Judaism (cf) 1Jn 2:18,19. Dan 11:38-45 describe his career. Substituting "the god of forces" (i.e. forces of nature) for the true God (Dan 11:38,39), he soon presents himself as that god (cf) 2Th 2:3,4. While his career lasts he is an irresistible conqueror Dan 11:40-44). He established his palace in Jerusalem, probably at the time of his supreme act of blasphemous impiety Dan 9:27 12:11 Mt 24:15 2Th 2:4. From this time begins the great tribulation Dan 12:1 Mt 24:21 which runs its course during the last half of Daniel's seventieth week, viz. three and one half years Dan 7:25 12:7,11 Rev 13:5.

Some General Uses from this Useful Truth, that Christ is the Truth.
Having thus cleared up this truth, we should come to speak of the way of believers making use of him as the truth, in several cases wherein they will stand in need of him as the truth. But ere we come to the particulars, we shall first propose some general uses of this useful point. First. This point of truth serveth to discover unto us, the woful condition of such as are strangers to Christ the truth; and oh, if it were believed! For, 1. They are not yet delivered from that dreadful plague of

Watching the Horizon
"Thy Kingdom Come." "Thou art coming! We are waiting With a hope that cannot fail; Asking not the day or hour, Resting on Thy word of power, Anchored safe within the veil. Time appointed may be long, But the vision must be sure: Certainty shall make us strong, Joyful patience must endure. "O the joy to see Thee reigning, Thee, my own beloved Lord! Every tongue Thy name confessing, Worship, honour, glory, blessing, Brought to Thee with glad accord! Thee, my Master and my Friend, Vindicated and enthroned!

Of the Matters to be Considered in the Councils.
Let us now consider the matters which should be treated in the councils, and with which popes, cardinals, bishops, and all learned men should occupy themselves day and night, if they loved Christ and His Church. But if they do not do so, the people at large and the temporal powers must do so, without considering the thunders of their excommunications. For an unjust excommunication is better than ten just absolutions, and an unjust absolution is worse than ten just excommunications. Therefore let
