drcHwd large audi
encea twice today
at tbe Golden Gate,
a Convention of
Itlhle Students As
soclntion" In ses
hIod here. He tin
been muklng a sort
of continental tour,
spoils, St Louis, Kansas City, Fueblo,
Colorudo Springs, Denver, Salt Lake
City. Los Angeles and Santa Cru.. In
oil these cities local branches of the
"1. U. 8. A." Incited him and made ar
ruiigcments for public uddresses. Not
withstanding the strain of continuous
travel and continuous public speaking,
the I'ltHtor seemed In excellent health
and vigor. He spoke enthusiastically
f tho warm receptions and attentive
bearings which ho had enjoyed. He
was specially pleased with his Califor
nia experiences and the glorious cllmale
noted at bis several stopping places.
The I'ustor's visit Is unique lu an
other respect. Learning of his Intend
ed program, some of his friends asked
iermlsulon to tnako up a party to ac
company him. Ho gladly assented. As
a result a' train load of Itlhlo Student
are wltb blm-about one hundred and
nlxty In all.
While the Golden Gate Condition
Is tho goal of the tour, It Is but the
turning point of tho excursion party.
Meetings are to be held on the return
journey at Sacramento. Portland, Ta
coma, Seattle, Vancouver, Calgary.

to, tho lutter being reached July lflth.
The Castor's achemo la a novel and a
benevolent one; for surety what he
tins undertaken and Is carrying out Is
not a lazy man's burden, from tho
evidences here wo surmise that tho
Jtlbie Btudents along his course of
travel will be blessed, stimulated, en
erglied. Pastor Itussell and his party
hear with them from tho Golden Unto
tho good wishes and Christian love of
Tho Earthly Zionism.
Speaking from tho text, "The Law
shull go forth from ML Zlon and the
Word of the Lord from Jerusalem"
(Isaiah II, ill. I'liHtor itussell declared
that Christians have Inadvertently
misappropriated to themselves many
promises of the Scriptures which are
rot wholly theirs. Christian creeds
and theories havo surmised that,
through tho rejection of Jesus, all Jews
dying In unbelief of Messiah were
foreordulned to an eternity of torture
becuuse of that unbelief In tho Only
A mre careful study of tho Itible,
he declared, Is showing Uihlo Students
the error of this position. Jews who
do not accept Jesus as their Savior and
who do not become followers In Ills
tileps lu tho "narrow way" will Indeed
fall of attaining a placo with Jesus In
Ills Throne of Glory. They will fail
to become Joint heirs with 1 11 in In His
glorious Messianic Kingdom. They
will full to become members of tho
spiritual Seed of Abraham, res pec ting
whom St Paul said, "It yo bo Christ's,
then are yo Abraham's Seed and heirs
according to the promise" (Galatlans
111. V.1K. "In thy Heed shall all tho fam
Hies of the cartu bo blessed "
Hut, asked the Pastor, are there not
many besides Jewa who will fall of
making their "calling and election
sure" to that Heavenly portion-to
membership lu the Messianic Itody or
KlogdomT Ills own convlctlou Is that
there will be found at niauy Jews as
of any other nationality In that spirit
ual company which, the Scriptures de
clare, will, alt told, be but a "Utile
flock." Indeed, there are atrong rea
sons for believing that the whole num
ber of this "elect" company, this Roy
al Priesthood, this spiritual Heed of
Abraham, this Messiah of glory, long
promised, will be only "a hundred and
forty four thousand" (Revelation ilv.
What Booomes of the Othersf
If tbe Church of glory, tho Rody of
Christ, be but a small company out of
tho millions of Christendom, what be
comes of tho remainder of Christendom
aa well aa the Jews? If only the Elect
gain tbe Kingdom If only the few
make their calling and election sure
what will become of tho great mass
of the non elect, both Jews and Gen
tiles, and tho heatbeu myriads? Pas
tor Russell declared that very foolish
and unscrlptural conclusions bare been
reached In respect to elect and non
fleet Tbe Apontlo declares that all non-
elect are to bo blessed by tho elect aa
soon as tbe election Is completed. But
we. following (be teachings of a darker
time and less convenient Bible, bare
r - ii
declareI that wbeo God predestinated
to elect the Church, ne equally pre
destinated to damn to eternal toruiunt
all others. But not a word of author
Ity could be found for su h a view In
the Bible. St. Piul's statement Is
wholly respecting the Church, not tbo
world, when he declares, "Whom He
did foreknow, them He also did predes
tinate that they should be conformed
to the Image of Ills Son." Such a pre
destination on God's psrt. all can
heartily endorse. Who can say that It
would be right on God's part to accept
any to membership lu the glorious Mes
slutilc Body, of which Jesus Is tbe
Head, except such as are pure In heart,
saintly, and so demonstrated even by
fiery trials ami disciplines!
God kept secret this mystery, St.
Paul declares the mystery that He Is
now selecting a favored class to be
associates wltb Messiah In tbe King
dom of God. for which we have been
praying, and through which the whole
world of mankind will shortly be
blessed. Now tbe Church's election Is
about completed, the Pastor believes;
and therefore nou Is tbe time for more
light to shine out, that God's further
gracious purposes toward natural Is
rael and tbe world may be more clear
Tho Heavenly Zionism,
The Zionism of tbe past eighteen cen
turies bus been of tbe heavenly kind.
It baa been calling and Inspiring to
loving real, obedience and activity
such as have the "hearing ear" for the
heavenly calling to Jolntbelrshlp with
Messiah. This glorious privilege is
about to end because the full number
predestinated of the Lord will soon
have been completed Meantime, the
Pastor and others of God's consecrat
ed people should bo Zionists in the
highest sense of the word, and, laying
aside every weight and every besetting
sin, each should strive to make bis
"calling and election sure" to a place
In the Heavenly Zlon tho Kingdom of
It will be from this Mt Zlon, tho
spiritual Kingdom of Messiah, that the
Law will go forth during the thousand
years of the Messianic reign; tho great
Judge and Law giver of the world will
bo the glorified Redeemer; and Ills as
sociates, In Ills various oflices of
Prophet, Priest. King. .Indite and Medi
ator, will-be tho faithful Zionists of
the present time who follow In the
steps of their Redeemer, delighting to
lay down their lives for the Truth's
suke and for the brethren's sake, In co
operation with tbe grent Cuplaln of
their salvation, through the merit of
His imputed righteousness.
The Word From Jerusalem,
As noon as Mt Zlon, the Kingdom,
shall be completed by the glorification
of the last member of the Church, It
will be tlmo for the I-aw to go forth
therefrom for the correction In right
eousness of the world's affairs for
the overthrow of every form of In
Iqulty and everything contrary to the
Golden Rule. In other words, when
the Kingdom class shall have been
completed by the elective process,
which Is tho Divine arrangement of
this Age, forthwith that Kingdom will
come Into power and tbe reign of right
eousnoss will begin.
But God has a time and order and
arrangement In respect to every fea
turo of Ills Program. In the remote
past, before Jesus came and became
the Head and leader of the Church to
Glory. God was In covennut relation
ship with Abraham and his natural
seed. The Scriptures assure us that a
considerable number were so full of
faith and loyal obedience to God that
even though they lived at a time be
fore the calling to tho Church began
they, nevertheless, were marked by the
Lord for special blessing and a special
shnre In tho Kingdom work when tho
time should come for Messiah to take
Ills great power and reign.
Reference Is tnndo to these Ancient
Worthies by St. Paul, lu Hebrews xl,
3S-40. Ho says: "These all died in
faith, not having received the things
promised them tbe earthly promises
God having provided some better
thing for us (tho Church) that they,
without us, should not be made per
feet" should not euter into tbe earth
ly blessing which belongs to them.
Accordingly, tho Scriptures tell us
that one of the first operations of Mes
siah's Kingdom, after the binding of
Satan, will bo the resurrection of the
Ancient Worthies of tbe Jewish race.
These, the Inspired Word tells us, will
be uindo Princes In all the earth rep
resentatives of tbe spiritual and in
visible Messianic Kingdom. These
will constitute the earthly Jerusalem,
the capital of the New Dispensation.
While the Law will proceed from the
Invisible and all-powerful spiritual
Messiah, It will come through these
resurrected, perfect and approved
earthly representatives; and from
them It will go forth gradually, as the
Divine message and rule, to every na
tion, people, kindred and tongue.
The N ew Covenant Israslitish.
Even If nothing were said In the
Scriptures respecting God's special
blessing to natural Israel, it might be
tnferrtd that they would most quickly
fall Into line with the leaders of their
own race, particularly as this would
bo In harmony wltb tho traditions of
their race for the past thirty five hun
dred years. Besides, tbe Law given
to Israel, and represented on tho two
tables of stone, will be the same that
will go Into force again as tho Law of
the Klngdom-the Gospel Call being
an appendage. The difference be
tween the Old Law Covenant and tho
New Law Covenant (Jeremiah nil,
81) Is that Israel's New Coveuunt will
have a greater and more powerful
Mediator than Moses; the Antitype of
Moses-Jesus the Head and the Church,
Ills Body (Acts 111, Zl. 23. Besides,
all coming under that New Covenant
by devotion to righteousness, will have
their nsst sine ao full furirlvAn that
( . ..... ....
the Lord will not remember them any
more ibe basis for this full forgive
ness being the merit of Jesus' ;aorlflce.
Few have realized how clearly the
Scriptures set forth that the New Cove
nant will be Israellrlab if tbe promise
respecting It be carefully read and
noted. .Christ Is the Mediator of that
New Covenant and Its "better sacri
fices" have been in progress during this
Gospel Age. It will be instituted wltb
the Ancient Worthies flrt. but grad
ually witb all tbe Israelites who flock
to the standard then lifted up amongst
the people. As tbe bleaslngs of resti
tution, earthly prosperity, health,
strength, etc., begin to be manifested
amongst those living under that Cove
nant arrangement, other nations, the
Bible tells us, will also desire to enter
into Its blessings; and they will be per
mitted so to do. By Individually re
nouncing sin and accepting the Cove
nant and its Mediator they will become
"proselytes of tbe gate." Hearkea!
"Many nations snail come and say, H
us go up to tbe Mountain of tbe Lord's
House, for He will teach us of His
ways and we will walk In His paths."
One King, But Two Kingdoms.
It has escaped Christendom in gen
eral until recently that the Divine
promise to Abraham is to be fulfilled
through two Seeds one a heavenly
class, tbe other an earthly class, with
Messiah the Head over all tRorauns
lv, 10). For eighteen ceuturies Gol
favored tbe Seed of Abraham, tbe na
tion of Israel.
That period of favor, explain It how
we may. began to wane about tbe time
of Jesus' death. It was completely
removed from them in the desolation
of their land by the Roman army A.
D. 70. Now a parallel time has been
reached, hence it is time for tbo re
turn of God's favor, as shown on previ
ous occnslons. The favor already Is
Tho Jew has not been so comforta
ble, nor so favorably fixed, as he is to
day, in more than eighteen centuries.
But bis blessing Is only beginning.
Shortly Divine favor, in God's due
time, will accomplish for Ills Choseu
People nil the precious promises of the
Law and of tho Prophets. Already
the Jew Is awakening to a realization
of this great truth.
A voice la sounding from the wilder
ness, and tho Jews everywhere are
barkening lo It. It does not call them
to become Christians, but to remain
Jews and to realize, as Jews, tbe Ideals
set before them by the Lord in the
Law aud In tho Prophets. To all
those exercised thereby a great bless
Ing Is near, which will more than
compensate for the sorrows of the past
Neither by swords nor guns nor dread
noughts, neither by flying airships nor
torpedoes will Israel's great victory be
gnlned; neither by money power and
worshiping of tbe golden calf of finance
nor by trusting In the arm of flesh, but
by looking to the Lord, from whom
will come their help.
Messiah's Spiritual Empire, about to
be established, will bind Satan, re
strain every evil and lift up a stand
ard for tbe people, blessing Israel and
establishing with them the New (Law
Covenant Instead of the Old Law
Covennut under the belter Mediator,
still more capable than the great
Moses; under the greater King, still
more wise than Solomon and still more
beloved of God thun David. This great
Celestial Empire will be established
wltb great authority In the world by a
tlmo of trouble, a time of earthly dis
tress, which the prophecies picture as
Israel's Hopee Why So Delayed?
The perplexing thought with our
Jewish friends, as well as witb Chris
tians, Is: If these things be so; If Mes
siah's Kingdom Is yet to be establish
ed, ns the Jews contemplated, only on
a spiritual plane Instead of an earthly
one; and If God's purpose Is to use
those anciently favored people as the
channels of Ills blessing In tho future,
why has there been so long delay?
We answer; This Is what the Scrip
tures term the Mystery the matter
which God did not reveal directly,
either to Abraham or through any of
the Prophets. Indirectly He hinted at
it, saying to Abraham, "Thy Seed shall
bo as the stars of heaven, and as the
sand of the seashore for multitude."
Dut Abraham did not discern, nor
did others, that these two Illustrations
belonged not to the same people, but
to two different Israels the heavenly
and the earthly, tbe stars representing
the heavenly Seed und the sand ot tbe
seashore the earthly Seed.
The restitution privileges soon to be
opened, first to Israel, wilt, later on, be
thrown open to all nations, peoples,
kindreds and tongues that tbey may
press In also under the same glorious
terms of Israel's New Covenant, be
cause "Israelites, Indeed," without
guile and sharers In all the blessings
of God supplied through the great
Mediator of the New Covenant and
His earthly Instrumentalities.
Zionism, amongst the Jews today,
we believe the Lord Is stirring op a
preparation of natural Israel for the
great blessing which so soon will be
at their door. As they begin to really
appreciate the Land of Promise, the
rich promises lu connection with that
land must become theirs, and the In
spiration of those promises will lead
their heorts bnck to the lxrd In prayer
and supplication and will lead the feet
of a reverential, representative nnm
ber of them bnck to the land Itself, to
which the Lord declared He would
bring them; and that from thence they
should be plucked np no more. Re
member, In this connection, St Paul'i
reference to the Now Covi-nnnt aud
the time when It will go Into force
with Isrnol. as recorded In Romnns xl.
27. The Pastor rejoiced In any oppor
tunity he had of stimulating Zionism,
both spiritual nnd earthlv. for both are
vitally connected with tho snlvatlon of
the world of mankind In general.
