The Fifth Universal Empire,
At first, in alarm, we are ready to
say. Would tiot that be a most danger
eus conditiou of things? Could any
loyal family, however noble and gen
erous. be entrusted with such auto
ratlc power without fear of its bein
misused for the enslavement of the
people, for the nggrnud zeinent of th
ro'.ers? Have we uot learned this In
the history of the pnst six thousnni
years? Po we not see the necessity
for curtailing nnl controlling tin- pow

ot more and more brought to realize
Hie necessity that the people shall rule

There nre to be no more until Messiah's
Kingdom: It will be the Fifth. Meau
Mme. we have bad two attempts at u
fifth monarchy, both unsuccessful. One
f these attempts was by Napoleon I.
lie other was that of the Papacy. Dur
ing this time the present divisions,
which resulted from the breaking up of
the Romun Empire, are represented by
Miefeet of the luiu .-e, with their ten toes.
Smiting the Image' Feet.
The prophecy declares (Daniel II. 44)
Mint In the days of these kings, repre
sented by the toes of the Image, the
God of heaven will set up a Kingdom,
vhl. b shall subdue all kingdoms, and
which shall never be overthrown. It
hall "be given to the eople. saints,
f the Most High God. nnd they shall
take the Kingdom nnd possess It for
ever, even forever and ever." (Daniel
Til. IS. 27.1 In tbp picture God's King
dom Is symliotlcally represented na a
great stone, hewn from the mountain
without hands Hupcrnaturnlly. It shall
gmite the image In its feet, nnd forth
with "the Iron, the brass, the silver
and the gold shall become like the
stinff of a summer threshing floor, nnd
the wind shall carry It away," but the
mountain shall Increase until "It shall
111 the whole earth."
Thus. Id a figure, or symbol. God
pictures things now shortly to come to
pass. I know not how much to ex
pect from the war between Italy and
Turkey, but Rome and Constantinople
stand for, represent, the two legs of
the image, for be It remembered that
each In turn was the Roman Capital,
and representative of the Image. We
are certainly justified in watching
with considerable interest the preseut
war and what it may Ik lending to in
the way of involving all the ten king
doms represented In this prophecy.
But that Is not the special point of
interest In my subject: rather. 1 am
discussing the character of Messiah's
Kingdom, which Is to rule the world.
overthrow Sin and Death and uplift
humanity from ignorance, superstition,
sin. weakness and death. The dec
laration Is that
Messiah shall reign i
until lie shall have put down all In
subordination, and that the last enemy
to be destroyed will be death, il
Corinthians xv. '2.1. 'Jii.)
Tills is th" Kingdom for which tho
Master Himself taught His followers
to pray. Nothing s'lyht or InxlgtiMleunt
will lie the outcome of that glorious.
Messianic reign of a thousand years.
t its very beelrnlng Satan will be
oound. with all that th's aiguilles
the repression of evil and darkness.
For a thousand years the Sun of Right
eousness shall pour forth the light or
truth and grace upon our poor, fallen
race until the knowledge of God s
glory shall fill the whole earth as tho
waters cover the great deep. (Ilnbak
kuk ii. H.i Eventually all wilful op
ponents of that Kingdom will die the
Second Death, from which there will
be no redemption, no recovery. Rut
meantime, all the willing and obedient
will lie riving, not only from the tomb,
but also out of all the weaknesses and
frailties of the present time. up. up. up
to the fulness of perfection of life, al-
th-ufh they will not live again in this
perfect sense until the thousand years
shall be finished. With the close of
tlu-t reign of righteousness, after It
shall have accomplished Its work or
delivering the groaning creation from
the bondge of corruption, sin and
death. Mesrlah will abdicate the
Throne, as It Is written. "He will de
liver up the Kingdom to God. even the
Father, that lie may be all In all.
I Corinthians xv. 21.
No More Sighing, Crying, Dying.
What a glorious triumph that will be
when every creature In heaven and
enrth nnd tinder the earth shall be
beard saying. Praise, glory, honor, do
minion nnd might lie unto llim that
slltelh upon the Throne, nnd unto the
Iiiuib. forever. (Revelation v. 13.1
What a glorious conditiou will then ob
tain when there shall be no uioje cry
lug. no more sighing, no more dying,
for all the fortner things of slu and
death, shall have passed away'. All!
He that sitteth upon the Throne said.
T...lifm1. I make all things new!" Glad
we are that our great Messiah is about
to overthrow sin and evil, nbout to es
tnblisli righteousness on n permanent
nnd everlasting foundation, which will
insure that to all eternity God's will
shall be done os perfectly In this earth
as It Is now done in heaven
I iisl; you to consider candidly you
need not reply -is there a kingdom in
the world today that In your Judgment
litlv represents a Divine government
amongst men? Is there a perfect gov
ernment. Is there a single spot In all
the earth where God's will is done as
it Is done in heaven? You are cou
versiint with historv. You know the
bloedv record which marks its pages,
You know that so-called Christian Kit
rone has been drenched with blood
more than any other part of the world
You know that the cause of wrong has

Is this logical? Is this rational? Most
We must go to the Bible for true in
formation ou this subject. It tells us
that these kingdoms ure not the king

world." It tills us thut Satan Is the

with equal clearness the Bible declares

The testimony tells ns thnt when the

The Election Hath Obtained It.
Come wiib me and take a cursory
view of God's great work thus fur no
coranllshed For more than two thou
sand years God gave no clear Intluia
tlon of what He Intended to do for the
fallen race. Then He made a state
meiit to Abraham, so clear, so explicit.
that St. Paul declares It was a state
nicnt of the Gospel In advance. G
said to Abraham. I intend to bless the
world, which could only mean. I Intend
to relieve them of the curse of death
which came upon them through Ad
ani's slu. God added to Abraham,
This blessing which I will bring to nil
the families of the earth will come
through your posterlty-"In thee and
In thy Seed shnll nil the families of the
earth be blessed."
God's due time for bringing ttm
blessing was still future; the blessing
intended could not come until Messiah
6hould come: but meantime God gave
to the uatural seed of Abraham,
through Moses, the Law Covenant,
which offered them eternal life and an
inheritance in the Kingdom if they
could keep the Law. Of course, they
could uot keep the Law because it was
the measure of a perfect mail's ubillty.
and alas! like the remainder of the
world, the Israelites were itnperfact
sluuers. Nevertheless the offer and
their attempt to keep the Law brought
them great uplift of heart, so that
when Jesus came to them a considera
ble number were ready to receive llim.
did receive llim. and lie received them.
Thev be( a me sons of God. through the
begetting of the Holy Spirit, at Pente
cost and afterward. These were the
spiritual Seed of Abraham, begotten ot
the Holy Spirit. Jesus Himself being
the Head, or First; the others were
counted in as members of Ills Body.
Israel had been hoping for a share in
Messiah's Kingdom, and St. Paul ex-
lalns. "Israel hath not i b'.alned that
with h he socket li for. I ft, u election
hath obtained it. and c "t were
blinded." The blinded Israelites are
still cast as de. but not forever. The
dvlne blessing shall come to natural
Israel Just as soon as spiritual Israel
shall be completed. (See Rom. xi.U.i lH I
The Kingdom Suffereth Violence.
What d.d the "e.ectiou" obtain?
Of what did the faithful "Israelites
indeed" become heirs by accepting
Jesus and by the Pentecostal blessing?
We answer that they became identified
with Messiah's Kingdom and heirs or
Inheritors of the glorious promise made
to Abraham, that in Mils Kingdom all
the families of the earth should In

not n sufficient number of Jews found
worthy to complete the Klncdutn class.
The Kimrdom therefore could not be
Inaugurated Iher God had foreseen
this and through the Prophet had
promised that some would be gather d

Kingdom class. The entire work of
this Gospel Age has been the cubing of
this "elect" class for the Kingdom. If
we have rightly viewed the matter, tin
foreordained number will soon have
been found, the election will be at an
end. (lie accepted will be glorllled as
the Kingdom, and Messiah's reign of
righteousness will begin
Rut notice now the iourse of nil be
longing to the Kingdom class, 'hrnugn
out this age. They are not reigning
with Christ, but suffering with Christ
And Jesus expl ined this: they are in

gotten of the Holy Spirit: they are in
deed the Kingdom class, because (hey
are affiliated with the great King: but
they have not yet entered Into their
glory. They will do so only by tho
nower of the First Resurrection. Thus
it is written. "We must all lie cluing
ed." because., "flesh and blood cannot
inherit the Kingdom of God.
Our Lord Himself was the Pattern,
the l-oreruuner of all these. After His
con -ei ration and His he'etting of the

sat (l)vu at the right hand of the
Majesty on High. Similarly nil of His
followers, after consecration, must be
tested., their loyalty must be proven,
before they can share with Him In
Partly for the testing of these, their
development takes place In a time
when Satan Is the Prime of this world,
and when his power Is permitted to
be exercised agnlnst then) as It Was
exercised against their Lord. The mes
sage to the;c Is. "The Kingdom suffer
eth violence and the violent take It by
force." As our Ird suffered violence
from the Prince of this world, so will
Ills followers, for "the disciple Is not
above His Lord." His promise to His
followers Is. "Re thou faithful unto
death, and I will give thee a crown of
life "-Revelation II. 10.
"The World Knoweth Us Not."
So (hen we perceive that (Sod s King
dom class, the followers of Jesus, have
been suffering violence. Just as did
their Leader, for righteousness' sake.
That the persecutors hud not known
and done their evil work Intentional
ly, St. Peter Intimates when he says
to the Jews. "I wot that In Ignorance
ye did it. ns did also your rulers, for
if they had known they would not
have crucified the Prince of Life."
Hence. In due time their blindness
shall be turned away nnd they will
look upon Him whom they pierced and
mourn (Zecharlah x it. IOi. and God
will pour usui them the spirit of pray
or and supplication, nnd forgive them
ntid make the experience profitable to
its many as shall prove willing.
Meantime, for eighteen enlurles, the
Scriptures declare. "The world knowet li
us not even us It knew Him uot."
God's saintly ones have uot been gen
erally the great, the Influential, either
In church or state, Just as Jesus nnd the
Apostles were not In I heir day. Never
theless, the Lord knoweth those that
are Ills. Scattered here and there,
durlug the paat eighteen centuries. Ho
has been dealing with them, preparing
them, pollshlug them, fitting them as
Jewels. And lie tells us thnt at our
Iyord's second coming lie will make up
Ills Jewels they will constitute the
Kingdom class, for If we suffer with
nim. we shall also reign with Him.
I am sure you will agree with ine
that those whom the Lord has been so
rarefully selecting. Instructing nnc
polishing In the school of Christ, who
have been so effectively polished with
the trials and disciplines of evil, will
be the very class above all others to
whom the glorious dominion of earth
may well be eutmsted without fear.
Only thoe thoroughly loyal to God
and to principle will be In that King
