it even paradise could not bring hap

quality of Love, and from what foun
tain can we receive the fresh supplies
so much needed by so ninny of our
r. .!? The answer Is that the great
Creator Himself is the Founluin. "C,o;l

"Show Ma Thy Glory."
The ancients had the correct thought,
that they had caught but a glimpse of
the Divine character and Us glnr.r;
Vcue their prayer, "Show me Thy
glory." The same should be our senti
ment. In the clear light now siitiu.ip
upon Od's Word we perceive thai I

but we may know that our dMllcutty
l'l the matter Is that the human com
parlsons can only Imperfectly repre
sent tlie Infinite. We see tho excarn
tlon rr perhaps the foundation walls
r perhaps the first story of a stmc
tnre; but if wo were to Judge wholly
liy thee Imperfetl parts it would be
manifestly unfair and we should bi
do citing ourselves. Tho only way to
Judge of the builder's capacity and u
cntloua would be to see the archltec-
v" ' - J
tnnl drawing and to study the details
and then we may but very Imper
fectly appreciate tlie whole. Is It not
thus In respect to the great Makers
present work and ultimate designs?
The poet has well s:;id:
"Judge not the Lord by feeble aensa.

"Ills purposes will ripen fast,

If we stand beside a great sculptor
with his freshly chosen hlock of mar
ble, we may ut first feel shocked to
note the apparent roughness and care
lessness with which be smites off large
pieces of the stone, as though bent on
Its destruction. But let patience have
her perfect work, and gradually we
will see that the sculptor has not been
careless or indifferent in respect to a
All the while that he seemed bo
reckless he was working according to
the ideal before his own mind. With
his mind's eye he saw his Ideal In the
stone, nnd blow afM-r blow, chip after
chip merely revealed to our ey s what
he had purposed In himself from the
beginning of his work. Not until his
work was finished could we compre
hend fully the ideal. Is not this pcln
rlple still more true of our Creator?
He tells us that lie Is "working all
things according to the counsel of nis
jwn will," which He purposed In Him
self "before the world was." tEphe-
fians i, 11; 111. 10, 11.)
The great Master Workman of the
Universe will eventually sliow both to
angels and men all the various attri
butes of His perfection His Wisdom.
Justice. Power and Love. Meant line.
"None of the wicked shall under
stand." but In the F.nd of this Ape the
wise will Increasingly understand His
purposes, bidden from all except His
saints, of whom It is written, "The
secret of the Lord is with them that
reverence Him;" "He will show you
things to come." Pan I m xxv, 14; Johu
Now Apply tha Principle.
Let us apply this principle to the
work of our great Creator. Let us
ftee how far it has already progressed.
In what state of development is the
Divine Plan today? What will be re
quired to complete it and to manifest
01 vine Wisdom, Justice. Love and
Power? Only by a careful examina
tion of the (treat Architect's revealed
plan can we judge at all of the degree
to which Ills purposes have already
Tho wreck and blight of human In
terests resulting from Father Adam's
disobedience progressed for twenty
Ave hundred years before the first step
was taken in the Divine Program on
man's behalf. That first step was
merely the innklng of a rough outline
drawing with various crude illustra
tions which merely hinted at one or
another of the Creator's glorious pur
poses, llils rough outlining was done
ilurlug tlie sixteen hundred years we
call the Jewish Age.
Israel as a nation pictured all the
world of mankind who will ultimately
corue Into fellowship with God. Their
one trlbo of Levi typified the House
hold of Faith, "the Church of the
First-born" of this Oospcl Age,
through whom all blessings will come
to the remainder. Tho select Levltes,
the priests, typllled the Royal Priest
hood of the better Mediator. The
sacrifices by which that Covenant was
established, and that people brought
Into harmony with God, typified the
better sacrillces of Christ, which began
with our Lord and have continued In
Ills faithful followers who present
their bodies living sacrifices, wholly
and acceptable to God through lilm.
(Unmans x II. 1.1
Israel's Jubilee year typified the
yrent Times of Jubilation soon to
omo, "the blessing of all the families
of tho enrth"-the "Times of Restitu
tion of nil things," to be Inaugurated
tho second coming of Christ and
the establishment of Ills Kingdom.
Manifestly only those who could un
derstand those roughly sketched draw
ings could comprehend to any degree
the great Divine Plan of tho Ages.
With this Gospel Age God began a
great work which Is yet far from fin
ished and which as yet does not show
forth fully to mankind In general Ills
Justice, Wisdom, Power or Love. The
work of this Age. according to the
Scriptures, is the selection of lioth the
Church, which Is "The Bride, the
Lamb's Wife," and "the virgins, her
companions, who follow her. (Psnlm
Tho Bible declares that Jesus, the
Redeemer, having finished His sacri
fice, passed Into glory-beyond the veil
to the right hand of Divine Majesty.
It declares also that when this Ago
shall ne completed all the faithful fol
lowers of Jesus will pass to lilm lie-
ond the veil and share Ills glory and
Ills Kingdom and immortality on the
heavenly plane. But how few there
.ire who see this much tif the Divine
Plan; and If they cannot see this much
f;ow could they be expected to see still
further Into the future developments
of tho Divine Program?
As the sentence of death ciiuie as
the re-tilt of oti transgression, hut In
volved the race, so one sacrifice for
sin, by the "man Christ Jesus," was
sufficient to be a Ilansotu-Prlce for the
sins of the whole world -a man's life
for a man s life. Thus as condemna
tion came through one man unto
death, so Justification Is provided
through this other man unto everlast
ing llfe.-Bomans v. Irt. IS.
Christ's Sacrifice Offsets Adam's Sin.
But although so broad a foundation
for tin mnu salvation was laid by the
great Master Workman, the Message
and the blowing therelu hare not been
grunted as .vet to the majority, but to
the few-"He that nrth an ear to hear,
let him hear;" .'As many the. Lord
yotir Cod shall call;" ""So man can
come unto Me, except the Fa'her which
oeut Me draw lilm." And this calling
and drawing, though In one sense free,
la In another sense restricted to those
who are In the heart condition of be
ing drawn and of hearing the call.
All others remain blinded to the I1
vine invitation by the god of this
world. (II Corinthians iv, 4.)
Evidently those now being drawn
nd "called" are njt the whole' world.
I but a select class. Those who prove
1 themselves faithful to the end are
styled "the very elect." These are the
Priesthood who. as priestly
Kings, will be associated with Messiah
in Ills glorious, world-wide Empire
which "shall rule from sea to sea and
from the river unto the ends of
the earth," for the binding of Satan,
the overthrow of sin. and the uplifting
of sinners. But we are to clearly dis
tinguish between the present work of
selecting the Royal Priests, the Bride,
the Lamb's Wife, nnd the work for the
! world, which these will accomplish
after their glorification on the spirit
We must thus distinguish, because
looking upon the revealed planjt of the
great Architect of the Universe, we
perceive that thus He has arranged
the Church, as the Bride of Christ, is
to constitute "a New Creation," "par
takers of the divine nature like unto
her Lord. These on the plane of glory
will have a station "far above pr n I
polities and powers and every name
that Is named."-Eph. I. il; Iter. Ill, 21.
Whoever can see this to be the Divine
Plan must with the t-ye of faith look
down to the future nnd behold the
Church "changed In a moment. In th
twinkling of an eye," because "flesh
and blood cannot Inherit the Kingdom
of God." Here Is love, wondrous love,
In lifting up members of the sinner
race to glory, honor and immortality.
Who can comprehend such love as tliis
which the Father has bestowed upon
Jesus and the "little flock" of His fol
lowers who walk in Ills steps?
Human Restitution In tha Future.
The earthly sculptor seemed waste
ful to prodigality wheu ho broke off
one portion of his stone and dealt
merely with it, but when subsequently
be explained that be intended to deal
also with the large remainder of the
stone, and to make thereof a wonder
ful group, we began to understand
him better. So the Almighty is now
showing to nis people that the Church
now being selected is merely "a firnt
frvitf of Ills crentures" and that, after
their perfection in glory, His great
work for the masses of mankind will
The fact that only a few of earth's
families were recognized of God for
twenty-five hundred years, und that
only one nation was recognized for
the following sixteen hundred years,
nnd that only a small proportion have
had any recognition during this Gospel
Age. seems strange to us until we learu
that God has not intended to put the
world on trial for Ufa or death ever
lasting, until first He shall have se
lectcd the "Church of the First-borns.
whose names are written in heaven.''
These now are required to prove and
perfect their loyalty by walking by
faith and not by sight Soon, we
trust, the Church will be completed
and the New Dispensation, already
dnwulng, will be fully Inaugurated.
"Ho that shall come will come nnd will
not tarry." Soon our prayer, "Thy
Kingdom come," will be answered.
Then for a thousand years the con
querlng of the world will progress uu
til God's will shall be done as thor
oughly on earth as now In heaven.
Well may the glorified saints sing.
"Who shall not come und worship be
fore Thee, O Ird. when Thy rlght
ous dealings are made manifest?"
Then the clouds of Ignorance, supers!!
tlon. doctrines of devils, fire nnd tor
tnre, horrors which have beclouded
the eyes of our understanding nnd
driven so many of the best specimens
of humanity away from God and from
Ills Book, will flee away
While now only those who hnve the
hearing ear can hear, and these are few,
the saintly, the Scriptures declare that
the full knowledge of God shall fill the
earth "fa due time." We must have
patience for God's time, as well as for
"Blind unbelief Is aura to err
And scan Ills work In vain;
Qod Is Ills own Interpreter,
And He will make It plain."
Consider tha Text.
Throughout the discourse we have
been working our way toward tho
glorious fulness of God's love declared
in our text. We have traced the Dl
vine Program In full harmony with
the Apostle's statement Into the
"Ages to come." Not until those
Ages shall have come will the Divine
Plan have been fully shown forth nor
tho riches of Divlue Lovo.
In the thousand years' reign of Mes
slab's glorious Empire, colahorlng with
lilm lu the overthrow of Sin and
Death-ln the release of huniaulty from
these powers of evil, by restoring them
to human perfection, the Brldo of Jesus
(the Church) will have a glorious
share. Glory, honor and immortality
will be her ortlou. The Grent Archl
tect has not further revealed His plans
in respect to the work of Christ and
Ills Bride during the eternity beyond
Ills Messianic reign. We merely know
that when He shnll hnve finished thnt
work Ho will deliver up the Kingdom
to God. even the Father. (1 Cor. xv,24.)
But then. In the "Ages to come."
God will show forth the exceeding
riches of Ills grace and His loving-
kindness towsrd us in Christ Jesus."
Oh! how much is mesnt by those
words, "exceed'ng riches of nis grace"!
Mind, heart nor tongue can measure
tho depths of those words, when we
remember tho Infinite greatness of the
Father's mercy which guarantees Ills
promise. Can any one 1ms gins any
thing more mighty, mors Influential In
II tbs Universe than Love Divine?
