Pastor Hussell's theme today was
one of great interest. The discourse
set forth the philosophy of the untold
sufferings of Christians throughout
this Gospel Dispensation. Part IV. of
The Photo-Drama of Creation, now on
exhibition both at home and abroad,
depicts tbe unwritten history of the
Church of Christ, and enables those
who see it to realize to some extent
what it has cost true Christians to "fol
low Ills steps." The Pastor's text was.
"Jehovah hath appointed Me to preach
good tidings to the meek, to bind up
the broken-hearted." Isaiah Cl:1.
The Pastor opened his discourse by
drawing attention to the statement
that the Gospel Message Is for the
meek, the broken-hearted. During the
Millennial Kelgn of Christ God will
take away the stoniness of heart from
mankind and will give. Instead, hearts
of flesh. Under the blessed con lit i ::s
of the Kingdom, hard, selfish h -arts
will gradually become soft, tender,
kind, gentle. Put now. in advance of
Messiah's Kingdom. God is seeking
those who are seeking II I in. Those
who are not especially seeking Ilini are
not likely to find II im.
Preaching the Gospel to the meek
Is the work of this Age. This is the
only class which God wishes to have
now. He is seeking the class that de
sire to be of the Bride of Christ. Jesus'
Joint-heirs in the Messianic Kingdom.
Therefore the Message is not such as
would suit the hard-hearted. Only the
tender-hearted care to know about the
love of God. the mercy of God. the
forgiveness of sins, the privilege of re
turning to the Father's House and
of having Jesus as their Savior.
The Pastor believes that in the past
we have had a wrong idea as to whom
the Gospel Message is to go. We went
out into the highways and byways to
find those who were very wicked
blasphemers, etc., thinking that these
were the ones with whom we were to
deal. The Scriptures do not authorize
any such Idea. A person living in un
repented sin is not in the proper con
dition to receive God's great Plan of
the Ages, the speaker claimed. God
has declared that "none of the wicked
shall understand." lie does not wish
them to do so. The very reverse is
true. His purpose is to bind up the
God's Message speaks peace to those
who are in trouble and who are look
ing to Him. seeking the righteousness
which lie provides. Some apparently
have made a great mistake in think
ing that the Gospel Is a sledge ham
mer with which they are to break
men's hearts. The speaker does not
know of any Scriptural commission
for any of the people of God to break
the hearts of men. On the contrary,
he thinks that the Devil does most of
The Two Conversions.
There are two conversions, declared
the Pastor. The first is a turning from
sin: the second, a turning to God.
Those desirous of approaching God are
seeking to leave sin. Those who are
living in sin wish to be away from God.
We cannot go in two directions at once.
The course which God would have any
pursue Is this: When one finds thafi
he is a sinner, ho should repent and
turn away from sin; then, when he
learns that God has made an arrange
ment by which sinners may be recon
ciled to Himself, he should ascertain
what steps he should take in order to
obtain his share in that reconciliation.
While turnlug from sin may in some
respects be called a conversion, yet it
Is not the principal conversion. Only
those who take the step of full con
secration to the Lord may receive the
Holy Spirit and obtain a clear view of
the Divine Plan. As the Apostle says,
"The natural man receive th not th
tV.ngs of the Sfirit of Cod; for they
r foolishriKS unto LIm; neither can
he know tLrm, becau:-e they are KiIrit
Then the Pastor explained that those
begotten of the Holy Spirit are S'.-rip-turaily
called children of God, heirs of
Cod, Joint-heirs with Je?us Christ. If
falthfwl unto death, tl.ey wiil t glori
fied in the Fii't Pes unction. Mean
time they are to grow in .-race, knowl
edge, love and all ofr.-r fru;U and
graces of the Spirit-grow by their
trials, by their obedience, by driving
against the world, the Uc-h and the
Devil. All thU mu.-t be done bffor-i
this class wiil be ready for their resur
rection change. In the present time,
however, all who are begotU n of the
Holy Spirit not only belong to the
Church in general, with all others of
the people of God, this one Brother
hood of Christ m the spiritual plane.
Lut they are also reckoned as members
of the Body of Christ on the fleshly
plane the earthly plane.
From thi.i viewpoint. Chrb.t has been
suffering in the flesh throughout the
Gospel Ago. St. Pe ter says that the
Prophets of Israel testified beforehand
of the sufferings of The Christ and of
the glory to follow; and hence he urge
the Church to arm themselves wp.h the
Fame mind that Jesus had. St. Paul
speaks of filling up that which is be
hind of the afflictions of The Christ
all the members of His Body. After
these sufferings are filled up. then the
glory will follow. The sufferings are
not yet complete.
The speaker went on to explain how
trials and discipline are means of de
veloping Christian character, preparing
the child of God for future service in
the Kingdom. The privilege of suffer
ing wiUi Christ in the flesh is some
thing to be appreciated. Whoever has
trials in the flesh because of Christ,
because of being His disciple, has oc
casion for rejoicing. Such should con
tinue faithful, in order that by and by
as a polished jewel he may be ready
for a glorious setting in the immortal
ity of the future. An uncut, unpolished
jewel is not worth much. Its real
worth Is brought forth in the cutting
So the Ixjrd gives His jewels the cut
ting and polishing necessary to en
able them to reflect the glorious light
of the goodness of God
Jewels do not all require the same
amount of polishing, declared the Pas
tor. A small diamond can be cut and
polished more easily than can a large
one. Those of the people of God who
undergo severe trials and afflictions
may hope that they will be accounted
large jewels in the hands of the Ird.
The larger the diamond, the more work
in cutting and polishing.
Confessing or Denying Christ.
Then the Pastor discussed the terms
upon which one may make his calling
and election sure to a position in the
glorified Body of Christ beyond the
veil. From the time w hen one's con
secration is accepted by the Father
and he Is begotten of the Holy Spirit,
his name is written in the Lamb's
Boole of Life as a member of the Body
of Christ. To these our Lord declares
that if they are faithful He will not
blot their names from His Book. These
are to remain faithful to what they
agreed to do to give their little all in
sacrifice. On that condition they were
accepted and had their names recorded.
But if an3 such deny Christ. He will
deny them. If they continue to con
fess Him. He will confess them. To
confess Christ is to live for Him day
by day confessing Him in the way in
which one uses time, influence, money,
talents; confessing Him in business, in
everything that is either said or done.
But if any consecrated child of God
should deny Christ by seeking to live
after the world, by neglecting the
Covenant of Sacrifice. suii would thus
demonstrate his unworthiness of a
place In the Bride class the Church in
Should any one ask the Pastor why
he lays so much strops upon vNMsvra-
tion, he would reply that, tuvonliivg to
Scripture, God H not r,ov deaUnc with
the would In general; that In outer to
bring our petitions t the Tluvno of
Heavenly Grace wo must tot Info re
lationship with God: am! thai there t
only one way by which thH can be
done consecration. To emphasize hi
point the speaker used the illustration
of a wedding in the time of our Lord.
On such tH-easions it was customary
for the host to furnish all the guests
with a plain white linen garment,
which was to be worn over their own
garments. Whether the guests wore
rich or poor raiment, the wedding gar
ment covered everything, and made
them all brethren for the time being;
for they were guests of the same host.
Applying his illustration, Tastor
Itussell explained that all consecrated
Christians have accepted God's invita
tion to the marriage of the Lamb the
Son of God. But no matter how well
we may arrange our own garments,
each must put on the wedding gar
ment or else remain away from the
feast. The moment of consecration Is
the moment of receiving the Kobe of
Christ's Righteousness, and only those
who continue to wear that robe will
have entrance to the wedding. By na
ture mankind are sinners. There Is
only one way to get rid of sins by be
lief in the Lord Jesus Christ, and full
consecration to do the will of God.
Whoever really believes that Jesus
died for his sins will act upon his be
lief by presenting his body a living
"Garments Unspotted From the World.
Continuing tin figure of the Wedding
Garment, the Pastor declared that the
robe put on by the Christians who de
sired to have entrance to the Marriage
of the Lamb was white and clean, rep
resenting his full justification at the
moment of consecration aU blemlshe3
of the flesh being covered with the
merit of Christ. The Scriptures tell us
that those who ultimately enter in to
the Marriage will bo those who have
kept their garments unsiottea from
the world. Since all tinr.'giittoua'-si

the child of Cod does not in: the New
Creature does n't sin. It is merely

the comforting assurar.ee of the Scrip
ture that "if any man fein, we have an
Advoeate with the Father, Jesus
Christ-the Righteous." Our Lord U
there to make good with the Father for
all the Adarnic weaknesses.
The Pastor then discussed two kind
of sin. one of w hich he rly.-!ared to be
forgivable and the other unforgivable.
If to any extent the mind consents to
the deed, to that extent the sin is wil
ful. Then 011I5- that portion which was
not wilful will be forgiven. "Whatever
part was not forgivable is punishable.
The individual will receive stripes,
punishments, of one sort or another,
proportionate to the degree in which
the wiil consented to the sin.
There is naturally such sympathy be
tween the flesh and the mind that some
times even the will of the New Crea
ture permits the flesh to take it by
force, as it were. This should not be;
the will is responsible, and because of
its carelessness will receive stripes of
some kind. But so long as the indi
vidual feels sorry as soon as the yield
ing to temptation has passed, he may
know that his will does not love sin.
Should his will ever change and pre
fer sin. he would not be sorry after
the sin was committed.
How to Be an Overcomer.
It was then shown that every con
secrated chiid of God must be an over
comer in fighting the good fight of
faith, and in obedience to God must
put down everything that pertains to
sin and unrighteousness in himself,
and stand for that -which is pleasing in
the siu'ht of God. This is the test of
our loyalty to Ilini and to the princi
ples of His righteous Government
Many sins are really weaknesses of the
flesh w hich overcome the "will momen
tarily. Just here the New Creature
must conquer In the fight. He must
get the victory over the flesh. If we
sin. if we trespass, we must go to the
Fountain of Grace and be forgiven.
The great difficulty, the Pastor de
clared, seems to be that after we have
had some experiences of this kind, wo
properly enough feel ashamed that we
have not done better. This is the
lime when the Christian is in danger.
He Is liable to fail to ask forgiveness
at the Throne of the Heavenly Grace;
for he feels that already he lias been
forgiven perhaps many times for the
same trespass. Therefore lie may try
to forget the spot, to forget tho "robe,"
almost to forget the Lord- Gradually
a veil comes between him and God;
the Father is not so near and so dear
as once lie was. While He is still his
Heavenly Father, while still the erring
one trusts in Him, nevertheless there
is a lack of the fellowship of the Spir
it. Earth-born clouds have hidden the
This is the experience of hundreds of
the people of God; for they cannot be
In Ills presence with spots upon their
robes, and they do not resolve that
they wiil not live away from Him.
They cannot have fellowship with tho
t ul while their ivbes are spotted, nor
can they have proper Christian lifo
j whUo absent from the Lord. The les
I soa on th'.s point, tho speaker declar
1 od, is that wo watch and keep humble.
I To oo;uo to tho Lord and say, "O Lord,
I another time I have failed! How
ashamed I ami" is to take tho right
step. Humility Is one of tho very
foundations upon which all other
graces must be built So the Apostle
Peter says, "Humble yourselves there
fore under the mighty hand of God,
that He may exalt you In due time."
The Cleansing Blood of Christ.
The number of those without spot or
wrinkle or any such thing is very
small, said the Pastor. Many Chris
tians have not kept their wedding robes
with sufficient care, and thus havo
shown their lack of appreciation of tho
wedding and of their Invitation to at
tend. If the attention of such be call
ed to the spots, they try to put them
out of sight, to ignore them, to declare
that everybody has spots on his robe.
This is an unwise procedure; for the
robe is our passport into the Kingdom.
If the spots are not removed, they
gradually become more and more a
hindrance to those who seek to bo ac
counted worthy of a place in the Bride
The Pastor then reminded his audi
ence that when the Christian first re
ceived his robe, it was pure white,
w ith a certain design stamped thereon;
and that lie was expected to embroider
it with the character-likeness of the
Lord. If he has gotten the robe spot
ted and Uxlraggled. he should go to
the Lord in prayer, and persist until
he tms assurauce of forgiveness and
cleansing. We road, "If we confess our
sins. He is faithful and Just to forcive
us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness." It is not merely a
matter of love, but of justice, on our
part. The Heavenly Father made the
arrangement; Jesus has died, paid our
penalty and imputed of His own merit
suttU-ient to cleanse all unintentional
spots. Forgiveness i to be tiad for
