Castor Russell
preached twice
here today. One
of his discourses,
on "The Wraih of
of God," was very
different from
what some of his
hearers would
have expected.
Many of his great
congregation were
evidently convinc
ed of the truth of his position.
The committee of seven (Including
Tastor Russclli appointed by the Inter
national lilble Students Association
to Investigate and report on missions
m foreign lands, have reached here.
1'nstor Russell is the chairman of
the Coniinittec. which Is to sail from
Fan Francisco Wednesday next. Great
Interest is being manifested every
where in this Committee and the
honest report respecting foreign mis
sions which its personnel guarantees.
Reports from the missions have been
so contucliug tnat tne missionary
funds have considerably fallen off, arid
those who give their dimes, as well as
those who give thousands, are awaiting
the report with keen Interest hoping,
of course. It may be every way favor
able, yet perhaps fearing a little the
reverse of this. Next to the Pastor in
prominence on the Committee is Gen
eral Hall, L". S. A. Resides, there are j
three merchants, one doctor, and Prof.

There will still be the marl; of the

These marks wll) not be fully blotted

agrees fully with St. rotor's words,
"That your sins may be blotted out

have our sins forgiven and to realize
that God is no longer angry with us
but reconciled, and It is quite another
thins to know our sins are blotted out.
The sins of the Church are forgiven
the moment we are accepted of God
through Christ and made partakers of
the Holy Spirit and are si vied chil

!...wt .),. ni..i eon,.,..wi c ngiiln to repent a nce"-tr If IuIwm In
the matter would seal our case, how
ever small the transgression-Just as
o'oeyod the Idvlne command. Lvery
d:iy aud every hour since, the world
has been witnessing that God's wrath
Is against It. that the death penalty is
being Inflicted. As the Scriptures de- j
dare, (he world has been under a
Kelgn of Sin and Ienth. However
sympathetic and loving the Heavenly
Father has been. He has allowed
stern Justice to mete out this penalty '
against every member of our race. He
is thus giving us a great lesson on
the exceeding sinfulness of sin Its
pernicious. Injurious influence and re
sults under Divine Law. He wishes
this lesson to be so thoroughly im
pressed upon our race that when in
due time lie shall bring In relief we
will never forget (he lesson, to nil
eternity, but will hate sin and dread
It as our worst foe.
We may understand the Aposllo to
lay special emphasis upon the word
"all" in our text-"Tho wrnth of God
Is revealed against all tmrlghleous
ness" not merely ngalnsl great sins
nnd gross violence, but ngalnst every
form of sin-even (lie slightest. Thus
the Scriptures declare that God's Law
Is one. and that n violation of It in
one point means (he violation of the
entire Law. To break one command
would be sin and merit (he dealh pen
alty: and to break all (he command
metits wotdd be sin and merit the
death penalty. Klernal life is provid
ed only for those who are perfect aud
who maintain that perfection and har
mony with God by full obedience (o
the Divine Law In every particular.
Do not misunderstand me to leach
that it makes no unit tor whether one
be a gross sinner or only a minor of
fender. In one way It irf matter, and
In another way It will not. Adam's
transgression was. In some respects, a
minor one. as compared to that of hi
son Cain. Adam stole and ate a for
bidden apple, nnd (he penalty was
death -the very strongest penalty of
God's Ijiw. If he had murdered his
wife the penalty would have been the
same death -not eterunl torment.
Whatever Adam's transgression. Di
vine Law would have hindered him
from ever again coining back to God.
It would have cut lilm off from ever
lasting 'life, and he would have need
of a Savior. Just the same for one sin
ns for another. Murder would have
been aln. nnd the disobedient eating of
the apple was sin. and sin cannot be
condoned by the Divine Law. It re-
it sealed Adam's fate with his minor
trn nsgresslon.
Tint let us not forget thnt (he Apos
(le limits (his possibility of sin-the
sin unto death to the Church to the
Spirit begotten ones. These, receiving
(heir share of (he great Atonement
sacrifice of Jesus, and falling to con
form to (he Divine requirement, come
tinder the Divine penalty n second
time, and theirs will be the Second
Death, from which there will be no
resurrection, no recovery. Compare
Hebrews vl, 4-fl and x. 2(1-31.
Coming Events Cast Shadows Befor.
It should be clear to us then that, in
harmony with our text, tho whole
world Is now under tho wrath of God,
which came upon the race through the
ing life, by reason of disobedience to
Divine Law.
The redemption accomplished for
these through (lie death of Jesus will
eventually be gloriously worked out.
and give to every man n full oppor
tunity of recovery, harmony with God
and everlasting life. The reason why
Go. I makes (his provision for redemp
tion Is because only one man sinned,
wilfully and Intelligently. All the re
mainder of his children were "born In
sin" nnd under the death sentence.
The redemption therefore Is in order
that every individual may have an
opportunity for reaching a decision n
to obedience or disobedience. r-
The lesson of sin nnd death Is taught
first. In (he few years of (ho present
life, and the marks of slu will go
over till the next Age. Those marks
will be deepened In proportion as any

plane of their knowledge of the Di

blessings attending them, mankind will
be given an individual trial or test, to
demonstrate whether tho great lesson
has been rightly learned. The willing
nnd obedient will get the reward of
eternal life, the unwilling and disobe
dient will receive tho final penalty, the
Second Death. It will be final In thnt
God will make no provision for rescue .
from that Second Death. It will be
"everlasting destruction." II Thess.l.y.
As the wrath of the present time Is
tho Divine death sentence uxn the
race, so "the wrnth to come" will be
disobedience of our first parents; and i the "second death" sentence, which
th nnlv ones who have esennod from ! will fail upon an WHO sin wiiruuy.

gotten of the Holy Spirit. The escape
of (hose from Divine wrath or the
death sentence Is not actual, but by
fullh. They reckon themselves as tiav
Ing passed "from death unto life."
As for the remainder of the world,
(hey are not thus reckoned, for they
are yet In their sins, still children of
wrath nnd experiencing the penalty of
sin. The world will continue under
these conditions until (he completion
of (ho election of the Church, nnd then
the I'edeomor, who now occupies the
position of Advocnte toward the
Church, will assume a new Olllce; He.

Church for the covering of her sins.
Thenceforth, as noon as. the great
High Priest shall have sealed Hint New
Covenant for the world, and tho Fath
er shall have accepted It. the sins of
the world will be camelled. That Is
(o say, death, (he wrath of God re

six thousand years, will Immediately
bo cancelled as respects all who will

(hat New Covenant will bind Satan for

be included Inferior manifestations of
Divine wrath: for Instance, such ns
came upon Hie Jews In the end ot
their Age-destroying them as a na
tion and such as is to come upon
Christendom in the end of this Age.
Hoth of these are styled "days of
wrath." "days of vengeance." The Di
vine vengeance which overthrew the
Jewish polity took cognizance of the
fact that as a nation they had en
Joyed great privileges for centuries.
It took note of tho fact that they
hail not lived up to their light nnd
privileges nnd were therefore deserv
ing of a corresponding national chns
tiscmcut, which was administered to
them. Of that time our Lord dislares.
"These be the (lays of vengonnce, thnt

the Prophets concerning then) should
be fulfilled." Justice owed them those
experiences, nnd the account has been
