Mir.l other gither
ings here, tha after-season
tion of the Inter
national ltitilp Stu-ll-llls
now ill ses
sion outshines ull
senlilles of many
years. The program is nn extensive
During the ten days of the Con
vention addresses will be given by
nlxry ministers and Instructors of the
Association. The teachings are Inter
denominational, unseetarlan. Pastor
Russell of Brooklyn Tabernacle, and
now also of London Tabernacle, is the
President of the Association. Ills was
the principal address of today. The
auditorium was crowded. Probably in
compliment to Methodists. Pastor Rus
sell took for his text what he claimed
was John Wesley's favorite "And the
Spirit and the F.rlde say. Come: and
whosoever will, let him take the water
of life freely" (Revelation xxli, 17.
'hat Wesley Could Not Believe.
Our Methodist friends wtio own this
wpHcious Auditorium have generally
forgotten the special teachings of
Brother Wesley, which brought them
to the front of his denomination at a
time wlieu Calviu's theory of the elec
tion of saints to glory and the predes
tination of ull others to eternal torture
was the basic thought of Protestantism
Brother Wesley's voice rang out clear
and full "I cannot believe that God
predestinated to eternal torture the
masses of mankind before they were
born. I must believe that God Is Love
and that Ills love and Ills justice
would give to every sinner a full op
portunity for return to Divine favor
uud to everlasting life through Christ.
Brother Calvin, indeed, has certain
Scriptures difficult to apply, respecting
. eleeUon nud the elect but I have one
Scripture at least which tells of a free
dom of I1 vine grnce. The 'river of
the water of life' is not declared to be
for the elect, but for 'whosoever will.'
1 take my stand upon that text."
Brother Wesley's bnttle-cry "God is
Love and will surely give every mem
ber of Adam's race an opportunity for
eternal life through Christ" has come
ringing down to our day. And ul-
though Christians have become sick
and tired of their endeavor to harmo
nize the doctrines of Flection and Free
Grace and are now trying to forget
doctrines altogether, nevertheless John
Wesley's theory has overwhelmed John
Calvin's. The vast majority of Pres
byterians, P.aptists, Congregationallsts,
etc., professing Calviu's tenets, really
believe Wesley's that God U Love and
will surely give every member of our
race a full opportunity for salvation,
and that lie predestinated none of
them to eternal torture.
Truth In Both Theories.
. There are elements of truth in both
thiwies, as we now see: "The path
of the Just Is as the shining light,
which Khineth more and more unto
the perfect day." We are nearing the
perfect day. and hence should umler
Kt.and the Bible better than did our
forefathers, who did not have the won
derful Bibles Christians now possess,
wjlh imirgin:il references, concordances
anil other helps! Ability to read also
is universal today. Oh. what m inner
of Bible sti'dents we should lie! Many
1 Christians, however, discouraged by
the inconsistencies ivid e:nt--mliotions
of the various en v-.': a'll Pro
testant, have a!
i ud abandoned tlt;ir H:t es a.sn. erro
Tieously believing the latter to be the
basis of the former. We must not
share this mistake. While doing all In
our power to -remove all the creed
fences which divide God's people Into
nects and parties, let us bold fn to
the Rible, the most wonderful R ok
In the world. It Is only beginning to
be understood; its true light Is shining
today as never before.' We are In thc
time mentioned by the Pronhet, when
the "wise shall understand" (Daniel
Brother Calvin was right In part
to the extent that he was In harmony
with the Bible, which leaches us to
strive to fulfil our Covenant with the
Lord, that thim we may "make our
calling and election sure." It does not
teach the predestination which Calvin
taught and which Wesley objected to
the predestination of the wicked to
an eternity of torture. The only pre
destination mentioned In the Bible In
connected with the Church, the saints.
Ood predestinated that none could be
f the Church class, the Bride class,
txi-vpt such as would become copies
of Els Sou, the Redeemer. That pre-
dest in uioii stands unalterable, but it

cept the ai:il... li ill p.irti ipate In the
ele tlmi. It s.ijs not one word about
lb- fa'e of t lit n. ui-e'.ect. Read Un
mans viii. -JS-:l' and you will see this
for yoti'eif. To this, the Scriptural
predestination, none can object. It is
the uuscriptural deductions whi-h have
caused us ditlicitlty.
Brother Wesley was in exact accord
with the Bible in bis declaration that
every member of our race inusi have a
share In the grace of God in Christ.
However, what Brother Wesley did not
see was that the great Plan of the
Ages is n-it confined to one century
nor to one Age. He did not see that.
While this Gospel Age Is exclusively
devoted to the selection of the Church
class, invited to be "the Bride, the
Lamb's Wife," there Is a coining Age
in which Christ and His glorified
Bride will extend Iivine mercy to the
The Key to the Mystery
Is expressed in (lie Apostle's words,
"In due time." Our great Creator need
not be in haste. He has all eternity
before Him. He allowed four thousand
years to puss before lie s.-at His Son
to redeem the world and He hi-s sUice
taken nearly two thousand years in
the selc-tiou of our Lord's elect Bride.
He has appointed an atldi:lonal thou
sand in which Jesus and His Bride,
the glorified Church, will establish a
leign of righteousness in the earth for
the overthrow of sin and the uplifting
of the sinners. Socially? Yes. Physi
cally' Yes. Morally? Yes. Intellec
tually? Yes. Out of sin and death?
Yes! Back to harmony with God If
they will? Yes! No freer grace is imag
inable than that which the Almighty
has provided through the Savior. Of
It St. Paul declares. "God wills to have
all men to be saved and to be brought
to a knowledge of the Truth." To this
end He has appointed one Mediator,
"who gave Himself a Ransom for all,
to be testified in due time" (I Timothy
li, 4-t!). ,
The "due time" for the Gospel call
dates from .Pentecost. But it is not a
call for the world, but for a special
class, the Bride class, to walk sacrl
ficlally in the footsteps of Jesus and to
gain the great reward of Jolnt-heirshlp
with Him in His Kingdom. The "due
time" for this work will soon be at an
end when the last probationary mem
ber of the Church shall have made his
calling and election sure and when the
"door Into the marriage" shall shut.
But the due time for the masses of
mankind to hear of His grace ami to
respond thereto Is still future, as Broth
er Wesley's favorite text will show us.
Before examining Ills text we will
note the fact that three-fourths of the
human family today are heathen in the
most absolute sense of the word and
many of the other fourth are heatheu
in a truthful sense. Why do they not
see the grace of God In Christ? Si.
Paul answers, "Because the god of this
world hath blinded their minds," be
cause "darkness covers the earth and
gross darkness the people" (II Corin
thians iv, 4; Isaiah Ix, 2).
But why does God not scatter the
darkness and open all the blind eyes
and unstop the deaf ears? We answer,
because, althouuh He has promised to
do these very things, Ills due time for
their accomplishment is not yet come.
He merely calls Ills elect during this
dark time, requiring them to prove
their worthiness, by walking faithfully
lu the dark: "We walk by faith ami
not by sight."
With the completion of the elect
Church at the coming of the Redeemer
after the marriage, when she will be
the Bride then both Bridegroom and
Bride will shine forth in glory, scatter
ing all the darkness, ignorance and
superstition of the world. Satan, the
Prince of Darkness, will be bound
and every evil thing shall be restrain
ed and the light of the knowledge of
the glory of God shall All the earth;
all the blind eyes shall be opened and
ull the deaf ears shall be unstopped.
What will he the result? God's Word
answers, that then "every knee shall
bow and every tongue confess to the
glory of God."
Brother Wesley's Proof Text
Brother Wesley s loving heart found
and tightly grasped the declaration,
"And the Spirit and the Bride say.
Come; and let him that heareth say.
Come; and let him that Is athirst come;
n'nd whosoever will, let him take the
water of life freely" (Revelation Xxil,
17). This text, however, belongs to the
coming Age, to the time when Messi
ah shall reign: "For He must reign
until lie hath put all enemies under
Ills feet" (1 Corinthians xv, 2.V21M.
There is no Bride yet to say, "Come."
Wp ate glad of this, glad that It Is
tstill possible for us to become mem-Ix-rs
of that Bride class which must
"make herself ready" for the marriage
and be forever united to the Lord as
His Bride at His second coining. Then
by the marriage she vill become the
Redeemer' Joint-heir to glory, honor
lind immortality in the Kingdom.
Then she, in co-operation with the
Spirit of the Lord, will say, "Come."
to whosoever wills to come of Adam's
race. Fveryone will say. "Come;"
there will be a world wide invitation.
All the blind eyes shall be opened to
sh the waters of life; all the deaf ears
shall be unstopped to hear of the gra
cious favor of God' love in Christ.
But a there Is no Bride yet to say,
"Come," neither Is there any "river of
the water of life" yet to Invite them
to. There will be no such river until
after the establishment of the King
dom for which the Master taught us
to pray, "Thy Kingdom come; Thy
will be done on earth as it Is done in
hiMven." Jesus explain that In the
present time Ills followers do not go to
the rivers of the water of life to drink;
but. on the contrary, hi say, "The
wiM- thnt I shall give him will b la
him. a well of water prinv;l!is up uati)
e el lasting life" t.lolm iv. 111.
The New Jerusalem Symbol.
The Church In her g lor. tied condition
after the 'Yhaiuje" of the l-rt Resur
rection, after bccoti lug the Bride, Is
symbolical!. represented as a City, as
n tio ernmeut the capital of God's
Kingdom, the New Jerusalem, which
will then come to. or be established iu.
the earth-not a literal cliy. but, bet
ter, a symbolical one, of the Kiugdoiu.
It will be from under the Throne
of that New Jerusalem, the Messianic
Kingdom, that the "river of the water
of life will flow, clear as crystal." Ou
either bank of the symbolical river will
be trees of life, whose leaves will be
for the healing of the nations. Then
will he their "due time" to come to
a knowledge of the Tru'h that God
loved them and did not predestinate
them to eternal torture, nor to purga
torial suffering, but sent His Son to die
for them to pay their death penalty
and thus to make possible their restitu
tion to Divine favor (Acts til. l'.K-'U
and to all the earthly blessings, privt
leges and rights originally given to
Father Adam lost by his disobedience
and red 'Cined at Calvary.
My dear friends, here we have the
grandest and broadest Free Grace pos
sible to be Imagined, iu connection with
our Heavenly Father and His grent
salvation provided lu Christ. As every
creature shares iu Father Adam's Im
perfection and dying conditions, so
each one is to share iu the merit of
Christ's righteousness and sacrificial
death; it shall lie "testillcd to all in
due time." There will be stripes, les
sons. Instructions, but they will all be
corrective with a view to the reforma
tion and the regeneration of Adam and
his race as human beings not as spirit
beings, not as angels; Adam and hi
race never were such. Only the Church
has been begotteu of the Holy Spirit
to a spirit nature; only the Church will
share In the resurrection to spirit con
ditions and be thus "like unto the an
gels." This Is Not Universalism.
These two salvations, now of the i
elect, and during Messiah's reign of
the uon-elect, do not Imply a universal
salvation of our race, but merely a
universal opportunity for everlasting
life. The Scriptures most clearly teach
a Second Death, like the first death,
except that noue will be redeemed
from the Seiond Heath, and none will
be resurrected from It. It therefore
will be, as St. Paul declares, an "ever
lasting destruction" (II Thessaloulans
I, lh. As St. Peter declares, the w ilful
sinners against light ami knowledge
will perish, "like natural brute beasts."
The lessons from these great truths
of the Bible are powerful. They make
plain to us that none can hope to lie
of the heavenly class, of the Bride of
Christ, except such as enter the strait I
gate and narrow way the saints, the
faithful unto death. They teach us
also. In harmony with other Scrip
tures, that those who now either see
not and hear not. or who see and hear
Imperfectly, will miss this great "prize
of our high calling." Nevertheless for
there, heathen and others. God has
j provided more than they could have
thought or asked an opportunity for
j obtaining human perfection and n
world-wide Kden Paradise restored.
It teaches, also, that every misstep,
every failure to do our best. Is costly
both to the world and to ourselves.
To whatever extent the world demeans
and degrades itself. It will have. In
proportion, ditlleulty and stripes In
connection with the possibilities and
; opportunities of recovery during Mes
I slab's Kingdom.
Let us herald wide the story of the
grace of God in Christ for every crea
ture: let us show the love of God to
all who have the eyes and ears of ap
preciation. There Is no greater influ
ence for righteousness than this The
love of God and the lve of Christ con
strained! us (II Corinthian v. 14). And
in proportion a mankind receive tho
same their constraint toward right
eousness Increase. Thus, with clearer
light upon our Father' Word. It Is
time for us ull to cast aside the things
of darkness nnd sectarianism which so
long have separated the people of God
from each other.
The Great Lesson of This.
The lesson to the Church Is gratitude,
loyalty, faithfulness to lllm who called
her out of darkness to the high calling
of joint-helrship with the Redeemer.
"The Bride, the Lamb's Wife." Is to
make herself ready by putting on the
fruits and graces of the Holy Spirit
and being renewed and transformed.
The lesson to the world yet Is only
to those who. to some extent, hear it
that God Is Love, that His mercy has
provided a great opportunity for resti
tution that Is nigh at hand; and fur
ther, the lesson Is that every good nnd
every evil deed will make their Impres
sion upon human character and have
to do with the stripes, correction,
etc.. of the future. Misimproved op
portunities In the present life, viola
tions of conscience, etc., will bring
their reasonable retribution In the life
to come and make the ascent more
tedious and the more dllllcult. On the
contrary, every good endeavor and at
tainment of self-control will be that
much of an assistance for the future,
when "the Spirit and the Bride shall
say, Come, ami whosoever will may
come and take of the water of lire free
ly" and obtain perfection and everlast
I trust that true Christian unity
upon the basis of Divine Tru'h ex
pressed In the Bible will be A,e key
note of this Convention to lis very
close. I trust that every foul In at
tendance may te s wi'.-nn-J and
cheered and vivified by the Truth nnd
it spirit that, going to bis homo, the
blessing may Ix evtendt-d Iu jrerflow
