GOD'S PROMISE TO BE FULFILLED Kis Kingdom on Earth Shar B EITF II3T Bf HiliUH POWER. Pastor Russell Says Mankind Erred In Its Early Interpretation of the Divine Plan of Salvation The Present Age Not the Lord's Time For the Redemp tion of the World It is the Period In Which the Few Shall Be Selected to Receive the Blessing of the Messiah. Honolulu, Ha waiian Islands. Th Internntlon- nl P.iblo Students (Joinniillee of For eign Mlssinmt I ii vestigation stop ped lit Honolulu mid made obser vations. I'iislor Russell, Clinlrninn of the Committee, delivered 11 public address, lie had (PASICW. KIISSEU) - n large audience and attentive heurlng. His text was from Isaiah Ixvl, 8. respect lug the birth of a nation In a dny. He said: In my childhood days every penny I could save was devoted to Foreign Missions. Tin; I In wnl in n Islands and the Fiji Islands wero prominent be fore the Christian world us missionary fields. I remember well that the es tablishment of a clvlll.ed government in these Islands was hailed as the ful filment of the text I have chosen "u nation bom In u day." Tlio thought then was that thus speedily the world would be converted rind the glorious promises of tho Hebrew prophets fill filled. How earnestly we labored und prayed. "Thy Kingdom come." think lng oil the while that we were bring lnjf the Kingdom of (!od to earth and fulfilling the Lord's Prayer! Alas! we are having n rude awaken ing from such dreams. We are finding that If the Kingdom of (!od must be established by biiiiuin power It will never be established. Wo are finding that the world's population Is doubling every century. If wo double our mis sionary enterprises every century we would only bo keeping puce with the natural Increase, of (be human family. Statistics show us that there are twelve tin ml roil millions of heathen today and that a century ago there were only half as many. Alas! those missionary hopes of ours have gone glimmering. Hut the awakening has done us food; it has taught us to think a little. We are now sensibly liuiiiirlng, Suppose we should convert all the bent hen and make the whole world a Christendom of the same sort that wo have In F.u rope, mid America! What then? Would Cod's will be done on earth as It Is done la heaven-perfectly? Could wo thus hope to bring In tho glorious con ditions prophesied. In which not only the knowledge of GimI would till the whole earth, but. additionally every knee should bow und every tongue con fess In Niich n manner us to be to tho glory of Cod? Wo see that such hopes would be worn than foolish; they would be ludicrous. Thus our awaken ing has done us good, and scut lis again to (iod'n I took to see wherein we erred in our expectations. What S.-iy the Scripures7 The disillusion respect ing great works of 1 1 r own hiunblt'd us before Cod and made us reallv.c our dependence upon 1 1 ! in for the fiillilincnl of (lie glorious pruplie. Ie4. W e bae read our I'.llilcs alie li. We have taken from our minds t!,- s;s. t.u let of our forefathers with the color mid clos-t hich I Key handed d n to u-'. We ale now rending Cod's P.eok In lli own li.lit. allowing Cod to be His own liderpieier. and Himself to make It plain And what do we find? Ah! wonder of wonders! We lind (he Divine Plan wider and deeper iiikI lih her than we bad ever dreamed. We llud that the present Age. from Calvary and Pentecost to the. second coming of .lesn.s. Is n t Cod's time for dealing with the world, opening their blind eyes, unstopping their deaf ears noil winking every knee to Ihiw and ev ery tongue to confess. It Is merely His time far tho gathering out from every nation, people, kindred mid tongue a "little flock" of such ns have the hearing ear mid the appreciative heart, to become the Itrldo of Christ and Ills Joint heirs in His glorious Kingdom, the establishment of which will mean tho blessing of oil tho fami lies of the earth, as was promised to father A bin ham. Well may we reason that If our flod walled for four thousand years before lie sent Ills Son to redeem the world, and has nlnoe waited two thousand more for the selecting of the Itrlde of Christ. He must Intend that the grout Kingdom of III Son, the Messianic reign of n thousand years, Is to do n grout work for mankind In general. Such broad foundations, such deep laid plans and arrangements foretell a grand mid glorious outcome. Evident ly (lad's Word shall lo fulfilled, which Ho spoke, saying, "My Word that go fth forth out of My month shall not return unto Mo void, but It shall no eonipllsh tint which I please, mid shall prosper In tho thing wherounto I sent rt." The message went forth In n primary iense In Fdon. when flod deolnred thnt vetttunlly "tho Seed of the woman ! j' !' 'MA, fc should bruise tho serpent's bead" uhoiild crush evb His Word went forth still more u'stinctly to Father Abraham, assuring him that ''e would have two seeds, two poster.. .es, one "as the stars of heaven" and the other j "as the sands of the seashore." The Church, with Christ her Head, const 1- , tutcs this heavenly, starry Seed of Abraham, as salth the Apostle (Gnls tlans 111. It!. 20); and with the comple tion of the Church will come the sec ondary blessing the development of the seed of Abraham as the sand of the seashore for multitude, every knee bowing and every tongue, confessing, to the glory of Cod. I5ut this secondary seed of Abraham, the earthly seed. Is to receive Its bless ing from the Heavenly Seed, hence everything waits now uutil the Church shall have been completed until the "very elect" shall have been gathered "from the four winds of heaven" un til all the followers of Jesus shall have been changed, "In a moment, In the twinkling of on eye," as participants la the First Resurrection. Then, oh, glorious Imy! the Run of Righteousness will shine forth Christ and Ills faithful Itrldo to chase nwuy thedarkness. Ignorance and supersti. tion from the world and to fully en lighten mankind of every nation, peo ple, kindred and tongue. In that glori ous work of enlightenment the natural seed of Abraham will have a blessed share, and Abraham, Isaac mid Jacob and all the Prophets shall bo "Princes In all the earth" iPsaliu xlv, HI), per fect men, representatives of the glori ous Messiah mid His P.riih in the earth, administrators of tho Law, which will go forth from the glorious Christ, invisible to men. Ah! that will be Earth's Jubilee! As In olden time, In tho Jubilee year, the Israelites returned to their own possessions, to their owu homesteads, so In the Antitype, only the latter will be still more grand: The human fam ily will come back into possession of Its own that which was lost by sin and lis penalty, that which was recov ered by Jesus, that which will be re stored by resurrection power during tho Messianic reign. The Nation Born In a Day. Rut what about our text? Did wo misinterpret tho Divine statement when we applied It to the acceptance by a people of civilization? Ah! yes; we made a very foolish mistake; the wish was father to the thought. Our misconceptions blinded us to tho prop er Interpretation of that Scripture. What then does It mean? How should our text be npplled? Ah, Ilcloved, thnt Nation to lie born In a day Is the Church, the Holy Nation, of which St. Peter spoke, "Ye are a Royal Priest hood, a peculiar people, n Holy Na tion." (I Peter II, !).) The Ixiiilting of this Holy Nation began at Pentecost, and has continued down through tho succeeding eighteen centuries and more. Tho Urlh will be the resurrec tion. All who now receive the begetting of the Holy Spirit are reckoned ns members of this Holy Nation, but their membership in it Is dependent upon their faithfulness; as we read. "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Mo in My Throne." The present life Is to every one of these royal priests, or priestly kings, ns we may choose to express It, n period of probation. Will we or will we uot "make our railing and election sure?" Not nt the beginning nor at the time of our consecration Is the matter decided, but after wo "have fought the good light and finished the course" and won the crown, by obedience even unto death. For nearly nineteen centuries these royal priests have been testifying for the Lord, each in his turn. For all the faithful there Is a crown of right eousness laul up; as St. rant said Henceforth there Is hild up for me a ' crown of rl;:lileeusiies, which the Lord, the righteous ,lud.:e, will idve nie nt that day"--early In that day of Me'siah, i;i Hie resiif ection morning. All ibe-e have a part in the I'll st ' iirreclinn, ami will be members of that Holy Nation, lh.it ryiil pile;!- hciid; in wo rend, 'T.Ustd and holy are all tliey 1 Tint tiae part In Hie Chief Insurrection; tei sm ii ibe See- mil Heath hath no power; but they hall be kings and prlc-ls unto tied and unto Christ und shall reign villi lllm a thousand years." Thus will that Holy Nation which (led has been gathering nud electing during the nineteen centuries, out of all nations, peoples, kindreds and tongues, from .Jews and (lent lies, bond and free, be born In h day come forth perfect mid complete, the Holy Nation of Hlvlne promise which, as (bid's spir itual Kuiplre, Is to take over tho con trol of the world for n thousand years and rule It In righteousness, to free nil from the power of Satan, sin nud death, and to lift up ogalu as ninny us nre willing to the linage and like ness of Hod, nud to destroy nil who love unrighteousness mid work In iquity. This Is the Kingdom of Messiah, whose dominion Is to be established on the earth, and for which Jesus taught us to pray. "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, ns It Is done In heaven." It will require the entire work of a thousnnd years to fully nc romplish nil of this glorious prophecy, but we hnve the lilvlne assurance that by that time Hod's will will bo ns per fectly done on this earth us It Is now done lu heaven Itself. Paradise of th Paeifio. I enn now well understand why your beautiful Island has been described ns the Paradise of the Pacific. I note your wonderful cllmnte mid everything which iHioperales with It to bring about fids Paradise likeness. 1 say to myself. Ilw gracious is our (Jod! Not jnly has II provided n heavenly Para disc for tne Church, that they should be sharers with their Lord on the spirit plane, partakers of the divine nature, "far above nugels. principalities and powers." but how gracious has God also been in 1IU provision for the world at larpe His promise of nn earthly Paradise for such of humanity as, when brought to a knowledge of Himself and Ills requirements, shall gladly, heartily accept the same! How wonderful is the Wlsdjiu and Power of Gi.d by wlti ii He can make nse of even the reign of sin and death to teach great lessons both to angels and men respecting tho exceeding sin fulness of slu! And how merciful ami gracious is the arrangement He has made that when this reign of sin and death shall have accomplished Ills In tended purposes, He will bring it to an end. Those twin monnrchs which have ruled the world for six thousand years Sin and Death shall be vanquished: and ultimately every inemlftr of Ad ana's rnce shall be delivered from their power. For the willing and obedient, the earthly Paradise, human perfec tion, the image of God la the flesh, is to be the reward an enrthiy reward; and for the rebellious, tUe Second Death, from which there will be no re demption, no recovery, and in which, thank Cod! there will be no sulTerlng. for they shall perish like the brute beasts, us St. Peter declares. II refer 11, 12. Restitution Will Bring Real Paradise. Much as your Island may resemble tho Garden of I'den, It Is not Paradise, and cannot be Paradise so long as you have sin and sorrow, pain mid death amongst you. One of the first objects that greeted my sight us I lauded was your cemetery, and I said. Oh! yes, death is hero, and rwiitrha-? Cod's curse, declaring that no Imperfect be ing may live. Well, I thank Cod for that, too. Centuries of life with imper fection would doubtless be to much for us to enjoy. Fur belter Is It as Di vine Wisdom has arranged It a birth, n struggle for existence, a battle with self and sin. the world, t tic tlesli and fhe Devil, mid then a falling asleep In death, until the morning of the resur rection. There will be no conscious ness of even a moment's intervening until tho glorious day shall have dawn ed, and the n. w order of tilings shall have been introduced nud established: and then the sleepers will come forth to see a brighter side than auy that they have previously experienced or ever heard of. The Kingdom of Cod's dear Son mid His elect P.rido will bo In power nud nothing shall hurt or destroy In ull His holy Kingdom. The blessing of the Lord shall be upon man, mid his earth ly dominion. Restitution influences will be at work for the bringing of everything to perfection especially for tho bringing of man up, up, up out of sin, weakness, degradation mid death to the full glory of perfection of mind and body mid vitality the image anil likeness of Cod, as at first, before sin entered. Rich and Poor and Socialism. You still have your rich and poor; thero still is casta amongst the chil dren of t lie one parentage; but when the uplifting Influence of Messiah's reign shall have done their work, these things will all bo In the past. "He that sitleth upon the Throne shall soy, "Re- hold, I make all thrngs new!" In that glorious time there will not be rich and poor, there will be socialism In the proper sense, as the Scriptures clearly point out; they say, "Every man shall sit under his own vine and under his owu fig tree; and none shall make them afraid." And again. "They shall not build and another inhabit, they shall uot plant nud another eat tho fruit thereof." There will be no tenantry, no landlordism theu. Do not 'understand me to be inciting dissatisfaction with the present condi tions. In many respects what we have to,1'" U Ul" Vl"'y .!,,'st l"""l thins under present conditions man's fallen nature and selfish temperament taken info consideration. The counsel of Cod's Word Is that till who trust in Ilitn are to wait for lllm to bring in the b'lltcr conditions. Same very well Intent ioned people are making a sad mistake; Ju- t as the morning Is nbont to da wu - about to brln;; In the great blessings of restitution, socialism, etc., they blindly look In another direction and declare that unless they bring so ckillsm to puss It will never come. We grant, Indeed, that It would be foolish to expect that the rich would bring about the wonderful changes which the Illltlo foretells It would be con trary to human nature lo so expect. P.ut we do say that those who think to bring about socialism by human wis dom and human strength nre deficient In wisdom. They do not see that what they propose Is absolutely Impossible their eyes are liolden. The P.lblo nlone shows us what will be the outcome of the present unrest nml selfishness and dissatisfaction. The Bible tells thnt whnt will start ns socialism will evetitually develop lulo nnnrchy. The Illble shows that those who think they can bring In tho Mes sianic blessings by carnal weapons nre deluding themselves they will Instead' bring noon themselves, ns well ns upon the rich, the great mid nwful trouble which the Scriptures foretell as being now Imminent "a time of trouble such ns was not since there was n nation." (Daniel xll.. 1.) Our Lord Jesus quoted this passago and added to It the words. "No. nor ever shall be." (Matthew xxlv. UL) Thank (Jod! that this one, great, nwful con flict. In which every ninn's hand sbnll be against hi neighbor and against his brother, will be the last. It will be so nwful as to make the entire world sick of strife, of selfishness, of sin. Thus It will net ns a great plowshare In the hearts of mankind In general, to break the hard-hearted aud to turn all hearts In expectation to tho Lord and Ills glorious Kingdom.
