They were heartily welcomed and given every facility for uotiug civil and missionary activities amongst the Filipinos. Pastor Russell gave two ad iresses today to large audiences, chief ly Americans. lie had a very earnest earing. We report his address in the Manila Graud Opera House from the text. "Thy Kingdom come. Tby will lie done on earth, as it is done in aeaven." (Matthew vl. 10.1 Ilesuid;- Many of us have lea rued to nppreel ate a republican form of government a the very highest type of civil ad ministration. I trust that I am not one whit behind the most patriotic of you la my appreciation of the great govern ent of (he ITuited States which many f us believe is the noblest that has yet risen nuionsist men. Nevertheless, the Bible teaches that Messiah's reign wi be that of a Monarchy; "hot only so. it will lie a very exclusive and aristo oratle Monarchy. Additionally, it will e most autocratic theocratic: the wi of its subjects will not lie consnlted in the slightest particular. 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 era of kings and governors? Are we ot more and more brought to realize Hie necessity that the people shall rule whether in Congress or in Parliament Donmas or In Chambers of Deputies es. ves. inv dear friends, 1 heartily arcede to all this: but when I shall de scribe to you the nature of the King dom that is to be established, and its personnel. all your fears will assuredly flee, and you will rejoice exceedingly fluat the Tivlne arrangement Is what it lb in respect to the tin ocratlc Kingdom stiortly to be established nnd to take Ter the govern. .tent of the world. Kcriinurolly. it is described as the Fifth Universal Empire of earth. 1 remind yon of the Divinely Inspired "ream of King Nebtn haduezzar. .us in terpreted ly the Prophet Daniel. It was of an image majestic, grand. Tht? head of the image was Nebuchadncz wir's own kingdom at Rabylon. tho first to rule over the earth.

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 I 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 triumphed as often or ofteuer thau the cause of right. You know that today these kingdoms of Europe, styled king donis of God. are threatening one mi nt her ns thev have done In the past you know that great guus. great bat tleshis and monster torpedoes, such as the world has never known before nre being prepared by these various nations for use. either aggressively or defensively, against one another, while thev all -rlnlui to be Christ's kingdoms Is this logical? Is this rational? Most assuredly not! We must go to the Bible for true in formation ou this subject. It tells us that these kingdoms ure not the king doins of God. but "kingdoms of this world." It tills us thut Satan Is the Prince of this world iJolni xlv. 3d Epheslnns ii. 2t: that he Is "the god of thU world." "that now worked) In the hearts of the children of dlsobwlleuce' so much more numerous than the children of obedience that he through them holds the world's coutrol. But with equal clearness the Bible declares the Divine Power nnd mastery over Satan nnd that he nnd his reign of sin and death are permitted of God for a limited time nnd for a special purpose The testimony tells ns thnt when the due time shnll come Messiah shall take His greut ower and relgu then Satau shnll be bound nnd nil the forces of sin and darkuess be restrained. Then the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing In Its beams to flood the earth with the light of the knowledge of the glory of (Sod. 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 blessed. But now note that there were 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 from the Gentiles to ( omplete tlii 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 deed of the Royal Family, because be 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 Holy Spirit. He was tested even unto ileith, even the death of the cross, be fore lie exiierleneed Ills glorious res-urre'-tioit change and ascended up and 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 "Ills Resurrection." 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 dom clans. PACKERS' BOOKS TAKEN TO COURT G2H2ral Lelpn cl Harris & Co. fc3l In EviJer.c3.
