Hebrews x, 12-H.
The Blblo is most
explicit In its declaration that Jesus, as
the Antitypical High Priest, offers but
one sacrifice of Himself for the sins of
the world, hi our context St. Taut
points to the fact that the typical
priests of the Jewish Era repeated
their sacrlllces yearly, on each succeed
ing Atonement Day. IIo notes to us
the fact that those were merely typical
sacrlllces, which could never take nway
sins; and then ho tells us that tho one
Sacrifice, on the one Atonement Day, by
the Antitypical High Priest, la so com
plete as to leave nothing further to ho
done. "Christ dleth no more;
death hath no more dominion over
Him;" "This Ho (lid once, when Ho
offered up Himself" "without spot unto
God." (Romans vl, 0; Hebrews vtl, 27;
lx. 14.) A matter so well established
wo should settlo In our minds and not
allow any theory or supposed necessity
to move us therefrom.
However, we behold two great Chris
tlnn communions holding a different
vlew-the High Church of England and
the Church of Rome. Both hold the
doctrine introduced into the Church
about the Fourth Century-the doctrine
of tho Masa. This doctrine holds that
the death of Christ cancels original
sin for believers and brings them into
fellowship with God through faith in
the redeeming blood of Christ. But It
philosophizes that sins committed after
coining Into the family of God need
cancellation also, and that nothing ex
cept the blood of Christ, the death of
Christ, con take away sin; and that the
merit of His death at Calvary having
been used to cancel our past sins, h
fresh sacrifice of Christ Is necessary
for the more recent sins.
Sacrifice of th Mat.
Proceeding with tho philosophy they
ask, How can we get a fresh sacrifice
of Christ and apply it and thus bo kept
cleansed In the sight of God? They
answer that the bread and tho wlno of
tho communion service, after being
blessed, are the actual flesh and blood
of Jesus, and may be used afresh In
sacrifice for sins.
Applying this philosophy these Chris
tian brethren perforin a common, or
Low, Mass for general sins, In a congre
gational way, and High Mass for spe
cial sins. Their Church services ac
cordingly are not so much studies or
expositions of the Bible, hut more par
ticularly a participation In the cteans
Ings supposed to accruo to all who at
Those who fail to attend Mass at
least once in a year are supposed to ho
horribly defiled with the accumulated
Ins. Tho congregation assembled,
praise and prayer are chanted, and
then the officiating priest approaches
what they call the altat1 of sacrifice.
On it are the bread and wine, which,
being blessed, are Instantly turned into
the actual flesh and actual blood of
Christ. The officiating priests and as
sociates and tho congregation are all
on their knees to worship tho Host to
give reverence to tho freshly crcnted
Christ on tho altar. The officiating
priest then rises and breaks the bread
of flesh. Thus tho sacrlflco of the Mass
for the sins of tho people present Is ac
compllshed. No wonder tho people are
anxious to bo present, to be cleansed
afresh of their sins!
Not only 13 tho sacrlflco of the Mass
thus mado for tho living, but Christ la
similarly sacrificed for tho dead sup
posed to be suffering In Turgatory.
Whirt Lift the Mistake?
I With our convenient Bibles (Cnthollc
and Protestant) we have much ndvan
tage over our brethren of tho Fourth
Century who Invented tho doctrine of
tho Masn. Wo now see that it is tin
scriptural and that tho bishops, onee
supposed to bo successors of the
Twelve Apostles, erred in other
words, they were not inspired they
were not successors of The Twelve
Whatever things these' bishops bound
on earth were not bound In heaven
they made mistakes, as we all have
Bud doubtless Just as honestly as we.
Blblo students rco clearly that the
one sacrifice of Christ Is sufficient for
tho sins of the whole world past, pres
ent and to come. God's provision In
Christ for the forgiveness of sins is
applicable only to Adam's (or original)
sin, aud to such weaknesses as have
come to his children from thnt original
sin by heredity. God does not propose
In any manner to forglvo sins wilfully
committed. They receive stripes or
punishments In proportion to their wilfulness.
Whatever proportion of sin Is direct
ly or Indirectly the result of Adam's
disobedience and human Imperfection
Is coverable through the merit of the
pne sacrifice of '.'hrist. which covering
Is to be obtained b the transgressor's
approaching the Throne of the heaven
ly (irace that he may obtain mercy
and find grace to help In time tf need.
When we came to God desiring to be
accepted as disciples of Jesus and
Joiut-sacrlflcers In His cross-bearing,
self denial and death to the world,
and Joint-heirs also with Him in His
Heavenly Kingdom, we found Him
prepared and willing to be our Advo
cate with the Father. Through the
Imputation of the merit of His sacrllice
we were healed and accepted of the
Father and begotteu of the Holy Spirit.
Now, as children of God. New crea
tures in Christ, we still need our Ad
vocate, because we as New Creatures
have not yet received our new bodies
and will not receive them until the
resurrection; and because our earthly
bodies are Imperfect through the fall
we are liable from time to time to be
overtaken in a fault. Our need, then
is not to attend Low Mass, or High
Mass, but to go directly to the Lord
in tho name and merit of our Advo
cate. Thus tho Apostle enjoins us
saying, "If any man (In tho Church)
sin, wo have an Advocate with tno
Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous."
(1 John 11, 1.) Tho thought that sin
In every instanco requires Atonement
is qulto Scriptural, and tho thought
that without tho shedding of blood
there is no' remission of sins is Scrip
tural. (Hebrews ix. 22.) But tho
thought that Christ needs to dlo more
than onco Is antagonistic to the Scrip
tures, as wo have already seeu.
The fact Is that good and great peo
plo have made serious errors In theol
ogy along nearly every line. The er
rors accumulated for nearly fifteen
centuries, and we must not wonder at
our slowness in getting fully rid of
them. For tho past four centuries
practically tho peoplo of God of all
denominations have been coming back
to tho light of God's Word. Both
Catholic and rrotestant translations
of tho Bible are assisting us. We are
growing In grnco as well as in knowl
edge. Whatever wo shall say of the
world, we must believe that God s
consecrated people in every denomina
tion are more Christlike, more God
like, than were their forefathers who,
surrounded by the errors of the past.

"The Abomination of Denotation."
Nearlv nineteen centuries ago our
Redeemer mentioned the Abomination
of Desolation spoken of by tho Trophet
Daniel. The Master declared that when
this Abomination bhould be seen those
noting it should understand and flee
with hasto. For long centuries itVas
supposed thnt the Great Tencher re
ferred to events which culminated In
A. D. 70, In tho destruction of Jerusa
lem. Tho Abomination was supposed
to refer to tho enrryiug of Roman ban
ners within tho holy precincts of the
Temple. It did seem utrnngo that so
comparatively insignificant a matter
should have been mentioned by the
Lord through Daniel tho Prophet, and
should nlso havo been referred to by
Of lato there Is another interpreta
tion. It refers our Lords prophecy
specially to tho end of this Ago and
tho great "Tlmo of Troubm" soon to
come upon tho Church and upon Chris
tendom. In this view the Abomination
of Desolation signifies a reprehensible
doctiino introduced into tho Church,
tho truo splrltuni Temple Info the
holy place." Tho doctrine was to be
an abomination in tho, nlght of God
and would exercise a desolating influ
ence upon everything associated with
it This influence would continue for
long centuries before its defiling char
acter would bo recognized. Then all
so recognizing it should know that the
Time of Trouble and the New Dispen
sation are near, and should make all
haste to separate themselves from
everything associated with the "Abomi
nation" they should forsake tho error
and flee to the mountain heights of
Truth, as Lot and his family fled from
I share with many other Blblo Stu
dents tho view that tho Desolating
Abomlntftlon mentioned by tho Prophet
Daniel and by Jesus is the doctrine of
tho Mass. It was introduced about
tho inlddlo of tho Fourth Century. It
bas had a corrupting iufluonce since
And now that we see it clearly It is

rccognlzo a brief synoptical history
covering tho period from the Fourth
Century to tho days of Napoleon. The
Sanctuary of Truth nnd Christian
strength was polluted. Tho dally Sac
rifice, ll!rally the continual idcrifice,
was taken away, and tho Abomination
of Desolation was Introduced tho
Mass. Then follows n description of
(he -Church nominal, corrupted by flat
tery and prosperity, and n description
of tho truo saints of God. who, at tho
samo time, were strong nnd did won
ders In support of tho Truth. A work
of Instruction Is mentioned, yet tho In
structors "fell by tho sword nnd by
flamo and captivity nnd spoil many
days"-many years-yet they were not
allowed to fall completely. God belli
ed them "with a little help" -Just
enough to presrvo them from extinc

out witness. This trying nnd purging
continued until "tho Time of tho End."

Better Sacrifice! Than Thoee.
But we are reminded that St. Paul
himself wrote of "better sacrifices, in
tho plural. (Hebrews ix, 23.) We are
asked what these refer to, if not to the
sacrifices of the Mass.
We reply that St. Paul made no
reference to sacrifices telng offered by
earthlv priests. He referred only to
those offered by the Great High Priest
Himself. None but the High Priest Is
ompetent to offer sacrifices acceptable
to God. Tho sacrifices In the typo or
the Day of Atonement consisted of
two the bullock, which wns for Aaron
and his household (his sons and his
liilie f Levi), and the Lord'H goat,
which he offered on behalf of all tho
people of Israel. In the Antitype,
himself and his house," represents
the Body of Christ (the Under Priest
hood, the Royal Priesthood), nnd tho
household of faith -the antitypical
Levltes; and all the people of Israel
typified all the world of mankind who
ultimately will be brought, through tho
merit of the precious Atonement, Into
full relationship with God and to ever
Of these "better sacrifices," the bul
lock represented our Lord Jesus, in
Ills own person. The merit of III
death Is throughout this Age Imputed
to His true followers-the saintly few,
tho Royal Priesthood, and to the larger
number of less zealous followers repre
sented by the tribe of Levi. All of
theso wero covered, reconciled, blessed,
directly through tho Imputation of
Christ's merit, when He appeared In
the presenco of God for us, nfter Ills
ascension, Divine acceptance of Ills
merit being manifested by the Imputa
tion of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
But that was not the completion of
Jesus' sncrlfice. In the typu the bullock
wns only one part of the sacrlflco. Next
followed tho Lord's goat, which repre
sented the class of Christians addressed
by St. Taul In his exhortation. "I be
seech you, brethren, by tho mercies of
God, Unit yo present your bodies a liv
ing sacrifice, holy nnd acceptable to
God." (Romans ill, 1.) During this
Gospel Ago tho followers of Jesus have
been privileged to present themselves
to Him for sacrifice, but they do not do
tho sacrificing. He, the spiritual High
Priest, has proceeded In His work for
moro than eighteen centuries, offering
up for acceptance by tho Fnther all
who have become His true disciples,
denying themselves and taking up their
cross and following Illm faithfully.
AH thdso' are represented by the
Lord's gont of the Day of Atonemeut
sacrlflco (Leviticus 1(1), and wero rep
resented in tho Pentecostal blessing.
Thero nil of this class wero accepted
representatively and all of them wero
devoted to sacrifice, according to tho
terms Divinely arranged. As soon as
tho foreordained number constituting
the sacrificial Body of Christ shall havo
been sacrificed, tho "better sacrifices"
will bo complete, and all tho members
of the Body of the Great High PrluBt
will pass to the Head beyond tho veil,
Into tho Most Holy. Then the work of
this Gospel Ago will be at an end. Then
tho work of tho New Dispensation will
begin the blessing of the world. Titus
"Thie Is My Body."
Lutherans as well ns Catholics hold
that tho Euchnrlst means more than
memorial of tho broken body and
shed blood of Christ. Catholics hold
that they have authority for consider
ing tho bread and wlue whlcl havo
been blessed as tho actual flesh and
the actual blootl-of Jesus, because, say
they. Jesus so treated the matter In
the first EuchnrlHt: "On the same
night In which He wns betrayed, He
took brend nnd brake It, saying, This
Is My body, which Is broken for you.
Likewise IIo took the cup. saying.
This Is My blood, shed for many for
tho remission of sins." Henco they
reason that if Jesus recognized tho
matter thus ns Ills actual lody and
actual blood, so might all of Ills fol
lowers. No, wo answer, most evident
ly Jesus meant, this bread represents
My flesh, and this wlno represents My
Our Catholic brethren who hold oth
erwise evidently forget thnt at that
time Jesus' flesh wns not yet sacrificed
and Ills blood was not yet shed,
rbereforo tho brend and the wine
which IIo handled could not by any
possibility havo been nioro than mere
representatives becauiie He still had
the orlglnnl. How strange that we
should havo overlooked this so long!
In harmony with what we hnve al
ready said respecting tho "better sac
rifices," wo note thnt St. Paul explains
thnt tho brend nnd tho wlno not only
represent nnd syinlmllzo tho flesh and
tho blood of Jesus, but additionally
ho flesh nnd blood of nil consecrated
peoplo who for centuries hnve been
participating with their Redeemer In
tho sncrlfloo of earthly things, thnt
