mighty. Tho clouds nro a favorite Hlblo
simile mid tho sacred writers liavo
inndo iniieli uso of them. After tho
ilelugo God hung on a cloud in conccutrii?
bands tho colors of tlio spectrum, saying: "I
do set my bow in tho clouds." As a moun
tain is sometimes entirely bidden by tho
vnpors, so, saysGtxl, "1 havo blotted out n3
a thick olouil thy transgressions." David
measures tho dlvino goodness mid found it so
high ho njiostropulzcd: "Thy faithfulness
renclicth unto tho clouds." As sometimes
theronro thousands of fleeces of vniors scur
ry lug across tho heavens, no, sa. s Isaiah, HI
l tho converts in tho millennium "ns clouds
and us doves." As In tho v.ct season no
sooner does tho sky clear than there comes
another odscunitlon, so, says Solomon, one
ncho or ailment of old folks lias no more
that gono than another jaiii comes "ns
clouds return in tlio rain." A column of
illumined rfoml led tho Israelites across the
wilderness. In tho liook of Job Kllhu,
watching tho clouds, could not understand
why they did not fall or why they
did jiotall roll together, tho laws of evapora
tion and condensation then not being under
stood, nnd ho cries out: "Dost thou know
tlio balancing of tho cloudsP When I read
my text it suggests to mo that tho clouds nro
tho Creator's inulpnge, nnd their whirling
masses am tho v. Inels, nnd tho tongue of tho
louditho ioIucf tlio celestial velilclo and
tho wiudsurotho hnrnc&ctl steeds, and Gotl
is tlio royal o-.'cuiwnt nud driver "who
makcth tho clouds his chariot."
To understand tho palmist's meaning In tho
text you must know thai tho chariot of oUl
was sometimes n sculptured brilliancy mndo
out of Ivory, soinetlmcD of solid silver, and
rollcn on tno wheels which were fastened to
tho nxlo by stout pins, nnd tho awful defeat
ofOcnomnus by I'elops was caused by tho
fact that n traitorous clutrlotecr had Inserted
a lliich phi of wn:: Instead of a Illicit pin of
iron. All of tho six hundred chariots of
l'liuraoh lost their lincli pins in tho Red sea,
for tlio Whlo fays: "Tlio Lord took off their
wheels." Ixol: nt tho long flash of Solomon's
fourteen hundred chariots, nml tho thirty
thousand chariots of tho 1'lillistincs. If you
havo ever visited tho buildings whero n king
or queen keeps tho coaches of state, as I have,
you know thnt kings nud queens havo great
varieties of turnout. Tho keeper tells you:
"This is tho stuto carriage and used only on
great occasions." "This Is tho coronation
onrringo nud in it tlio king rode on tho
day bo tool; tho throno." "In this tho
queen went to open parliament.11 "This
is tho coaeh In which tho czar nnd
tlio sultan rodo on tlio occasion
of their visit." All costly nnd tesselatcd
nnd em Ichcd nud emblazoned nro thoy, nnd
when tho driver takes tho reins of tho ten
whlto horses In his hnudi, nnd nmld mounted
troops and bands in full foreo sounding tho
national nir, tho splendor starts and rolls on
under arches entwined with banners, nud
nmld tho huzza of hundreds of thousands of
rpcotator3 tho teeno is memorable. But my
text puts nil such occasions into iuslgnlfl
ennee, ns it represents tho King of tlio Uni
verse coming to tho door of his pnlaeouud
tho gilded vapors of tho heavens rolling up
to his feet, nud he, stepping in nnd taking tho
rclus of tho galloping winds in his hand,
starts in triumphal rldo under tho arches of

That cloud, instead of being, ns it seems, a
imnll gathering of vutwrfi n fow yards wluo
nml high, Is really seven or eight miles
across, and Is n mountain, from its
base to its top 15,000 feet, 18,000
feet, 20,000 feet, and cut through with
ravines 5,(100 feet deep. No, David did
not make a fragile or unworthy representa

Yea; bo has bis evening cloud chariot. It
Is made out of tho snlTron nnd tho gold and
tho purple nnd tho ornngo nml tho vermilion
and upshot llamo of tho sunset. That Is tho
place w here tho splendors that hnvo marched
throiigl tho day, having ended tho proces
sion, throw down their torches mid set tho
heavens on tire. That Is tlio only hour of tho
ilny when tho iittnosphcro Is elenr enough to
let us seo tho wall of tho heavenly city with
its twelvo manner of precious itones, from
foundation of Jasjier to middle strata of
sardlu nnd on up to tho coping of ninethyst.
At that hour, without any of Klislut's super
natural vision, uo seo horses ot llro nnd
chariots of llro nnd banners of llro nnd ships
of flro and cities of lire, ocas of lire, nnd it
seems ns if tho last conllngratlon had begun
nnd there Is n world on fire. When God
makes cloud.) his chariot let us nil
kneel. Another day past, what havo o
done with It) Another day iteiid, mid this is
its gorgeous catafalque. Now is thotlmo for

Uod must bo to hnvo a new chariot of cloud i

But tho Ulblo tells us that our King also
La3 a black chariot. "Clouds and darkness,"
wo an told, "nro round nbout him." That
chariot is cloven out of night, and that night
Is trouble. Who;) ho rides fort'a in that black
chariot, jicstilouco and earthquake, nnd fam
ine, nml hurricane, nnd woo attend him.
Then let tho earth treniblo. Then let na
tions pray. Again and again ho has ridden
forth in that chariot of black cloud, across
Lngluml mid Franco and Italy and Russia
and America, and over all nations. That
which men took for thotoundof cannonading
nt Kebastopol, nt Kcdnn, at Gettysburg, u
Tel-cl-Keblr, at Bunker Hill, were ouly tho
rumblings of tho black chariot cl
tlio Almighty. Aye, it Is tho chariot of
storm cloud nrmed with thunderbolts, nml
neither man, nor angel, nor devil, nor earth,
nor hell, nor heaven can resist him. On
those boulevards of bluo this chariot never
turns out for anything. Aye, no ono elso
drives there. Under ono wheel of that char
lot Babylon wns crushed and Baalbecl: fell
dead nud tho Uonnii cmplro was prostrated,
and Atlantis a wholo continent that ouco
connected Euroio with America, sank clear
out of bight, so that tho longest nnchor of
ocean steamer cannot touch tho tops of its
highest mountains, Tho throno of tho
Caaars wns less than a pebble uuder tho right
wheel of this clwrlot, and tlio Austrian des
potism less than a Ltiowilako under tho left
wheel And over destroyed tt orld3 ou w urlds
that chariot bus rolled without a Jar or jolt.
This black chariot of war cloud rolled up
to tho northwest of Kuropo ia IU1-', and four
hundred thousand men marched to take Mos
cow, but that chariot of clouds rolled back,
nud only twenty-flvo thousand out of tho four
hundred thousand troops lived to return. No
great enow storm Hko that had everlieforo
or has over eluco visited Russia. Aye, tho
chariot of tho Lord is irresistible. Thero is
only ono thing that cau halt or turn any of
his chariots, and that is prayer. Again and
again it has stopped it, wheeled It around,
and tho chariot of black clouds under that
sanctified human breath has blossomed Into
such brightness unil color that men nud
angelj hnd to veil their fnecs from Its bright
ness. Mark jou, tho ancient chariot which
David uses as a symbol in my text had
only two wheels, and that was that they
might turn quickly, two wheels taking lesa
than half tho time to turn that four wheels
would havo taken. Ami our Lord's chariot
has ouly two wheels, and that means instaut
reversal, nud iustaut help, and instant de
Hvcraneo. While tho combined forces of
thounlvcrso in battlo nrray could not stop
his black chariot it second or divergo it an
inch, tho driver of that chiriot says, "Call
upon mo in tho day of troublo and I will de
liver thee," "While theyuro jot spouklng I
will hear." Two wheeled chariot, ono wheel
justice and tho other wheel mercy. Aye,
thoy nro bwlft wheels. A cloud, whether it
belongs to tho clrrbus, tho clouds that float
tho highest j or belongs to tho stratus, tho cen
tral ranges; or to tho cumulus, tho lowest
ranges, seems to move blowly nlong tho sky,
If it moves ut all. But many of tho clouds
go at a sliced that would teem lcthnrglo a
vestlbulo limited lightning express train, bo
swift is tho chariot of our God yen, bwifter
than tho storm, swifter than tho light. Yet
a child ten years old has been known to reach
up, nud with tho hand of prayer tako tho
courser of that chariot by tho bit mid slow it
up, or stop it, or turn it nslde, or turn it
back. Tho boy Bamucl stopped it. L'lljah
stopped it. Hczeklah ttopied it. Daniel
stopped It. Joshua stoppeuVlt. Ilsthcr i
ktopiied it. ltutb. stopped It. Hannah
btopiil It. ilury ttopped it. My father
stopped It. My mother stopjcd it. My

Notice that there old time chariots, which
my text uses for rymbol, had w hat wo w ould
call a high dashboard nt tho front, but were
open behind. And tho king would ttand nt

Audlnm glad that he, whoso chariot tho
clouds are, drives himself. Ho does not lot
natural law drive, for nntural law I deaf.
Ho does not lot f uto drive, for fato Is merci
less. But our rather King drives himself,
and ho puts his loving hand ou tho icius of
tho flying coursers, nml he has a loving car
ow to tho cry of all who want to catch hU
attention. Oh, I am so glad that my Tuthcr

drives oir tho precipice, nud that bo

know that many or the clouds that joiieco
1 in summer nro fur ofT, the bases of some of
them five miles above the cattb. High on
tho highest eaks of the Audi's travelers Imvo
been clouds far higher than where they wero
standing. Gny Lusmic, ufter ho hud risen In
a balloon twenty-three feet, still
saw clouds above him.
But I hero are clouds that touch tho earth
nnd discharge their ruin, nnd, though tho
clouds out of which God's chariot is undo
may sometimes bo far nwny, often they nro
clow by, and they touch our shoulders and
they touch our homes nnd they touch us all
over. I havo read of t w o rides t ha t tho I3id
look in two different chariots of clouds, and
of another that ho will tnkc. One day, in a
chariot of clouds that wero a mingling of
fog ami btuoke and lire, God drove down to
tho top of u terrible crag flftcen hundred
feet high, low called Jebel-Muso, then called
Mount Uiaai, and liobtcpcdoutof his char
iotcmougtho split shelvings of rock. Tho
mountain shook as with uu ngue, nud
thero wero ten volleyuof thunder, cuch of the
ten emphasizing a tremendous "Thou shall"
or "Thou slmlt not." Then tho Lord ro.
miuieil his chariot of cloud .mil drove up tho
lull) of heaven. Thoy wero dark and por
tuutous clouds that made that chariot ut tho
giving of the law. But ono day ho took
auother ride, ami this tluio down to Momi!
Tubor, tho clouds nut ot" which his chariot
wns made bright clouda, clouds, illu
mined clouds, and muslo rained from all of
them, and tho muslo wa i n mingling of carol

"Oh," say hundreds of you, "I w ish I could
havo seen thoso chariots tho black ony that
brought tho Lord to Jebel-Musa nt the giving
of tho law, and tho whlto ono thnt brought
him down to Tabor." Novcr mind, you will
