',. 11 v
both at home and abroad. The Pas
tor's topic was from a test Ave have
never before heard discussed in the
pulpit "Then shall appear the sioru of
lhe Son of Man in heaven; and then
shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
and they shall see the Son of Man
com in e in the clouds of heaven with
lHwer and great glory." Matt. 2-1 :oO.
The speaker pointed out that various
suggestions have been made by schol
ars respecting the import of this
prophecy by the Master. Some guess--d
that the sign would be a Cross in
the sky. Others thought that it would
be Christ Himself, who would appear
in some wrathful form to humanity,
The Pastor surmised that his hearers
had read the published reports of his
sermon of last Sunday respecting the
Second Coming of Christ in its two
j 'liases the Parousia. or invisible pres
ence, followed by the Epiphauia, or
! bright-shining in flaming tire, or judg
ment, lie asked his hearers to remem
ber the findings of last week that we
cannot say that the sign of the Son of
Man in heaven will be His Parousia.
On the contrary, the Tarousia of Christ
will not be known to the tribes, or
families, of the earth in general, but
will le known only to the most saintly
ones of the Church of Christ. Conse
quentlj. the sign of the Son of Man
must in some sense stand related to
His Ppiphania, or shining forth in the
"flaming fire" of judgment, which the
wtiole world of mankind will recognize.
The hearers were reminded that the
word "sign" is of broad meaning;
for instance, crepe is a sign of mourn
ing; the Cross represents Christianity;
the Crescent, Mohammedanism. In
other words, a sign is merely an indi
cation. So when we read of the "sign
of the Son of Man in heaven," the
thought inight properly be that some
thing will occur indicative of the pres
ence of the Son of Man that lie has
taken to Himself His great power and
has begun His Peign. Since the Son
of Man is to be revealed in flaming fire,
taking vengeance, it follows that this
sign must be some sign of vengeance,
some indication of righteous indigna
tion against wrong.
The epiestion, then, arises. How would
such a sign, or indication, cpiear in
the sky, in the heavens? The I'astor
replied that this is not the thought. On
the contrary, he urged his hearers to
remember that the Ilible repeatedly
'uses the words heaven, mountain, sea
in a symbolical manner the earth rep
resenting organized society; the moun
tains representing kingdoms, as the
backbones of this organized society;
the seas representing the restless
masses of humanity, continually seek
ing to swallow up the social "earth."
In the same symbolic terms the heav
ens represent the ecclesiastical pow
ers of the world churchianity. The
sign appearing in the heavens, the
Pastor believes, signifies that the be
ginning of Christ's judgments will fall
upon the ecclesiastical systems of our
dav. The flaming tire of judgments
will first manifest itself in ecclesiasti
cal affairs and circles
Mankind will gradually become awak
ened to the thought that a new Gov
ernment is in control, and that its pol
icy will be the law of "judgment to the
liue and righteousness to the plum
met." Since unrighteousness is preva
lent as a result of man's fallen condi
tion, the consciences of the whole world
will be awakened, quickened; and fear,
dread, will come uixm alt classes every
where. This will le not only because
they will see the primary , sign of
Christ's righteous judgments in reli
gious circles, but because they will see
Him coming drawing nearer and near
er in judgment; and they will recognize
that they, too, must shortly be in
volved. Hence there will be mourning
because of nim.
Furthermore, it will be remembered
that all the families of the earth have
very crude and incorrect views of Mes
siah and of the object of His Second
Coming and Kingdom. The 'Moeirines
of devils." brought into the chunh
ereeds during the DrNk Ages, have so
made void the Word of Cod that the
majority or mainaiui rear t!ie Almighty,
dread Him -is their Almighty Foe. in
stead of realizing Hint to be the Cod of
all grace and the Father of all mercies.

those who are truly the Lord's and are
rightly informed respecting the Pivine
Plan of the Apes wid be able to lift up
their heads and re.:. 'ice. knowing that
their "deliverance draweth nigh."
"THe Heavens Being on Fire."
St. Peter apparently dos.-rihod this
simi of the Son of Man in the heavens,
revealed in flaming tire. His word-; are.
"The heavens Leing .n fire shall be dis
solved." and "the earth also Fhr.il take
fire and the works that are therein
shall he burned up." (2 Peter 3:1-12.
Let us not make th mistake of our
forefathers in suppe--:i!g that these de
sc riptions mean a literal burning of the
literal earth. Let r.- on the contrary,
realize that the syml-olieal earth and
the symboJiea! heavens are to catch
tire and pass away vi;h a groat eoni-
ciotieii. wuii" the pay-ioal earth will
remain practically as it is. and will be
jdn to undergo the transforming influ
ences of Kestitutio'i tinder the new
King, the Kestorer of all things Jesus
and His glorified Chun k.
It will be noticed that St. Peter men
tions the fire as eoruing to the heavens
before it reaches the e.irtlf, in just the
same order that Jesus stated the mat
ter. The si-rn. manifestation, of the
llaming lire of judgments will appear
in the heavens; ai d subsequently the
sign of the Son of Man in judgment
will bo seen coming nearer and nearer
to earth's affairs, with a view to purg
ing them absolutely from everything
sinful, selfish, unjust.
We are told that the elements will
melt with fervent heat. We see the
Capitalistic clement and the Labor cle
ment separating, the one from the
other. We see the preparations for the
great conflagration, the great Time of
Trouble. We sometimes speak of it in
this language, saying, "Things are get
ting very hot." They will presently be
hot that spontaneous combustion
will set in. And the tire of that Iay
will be so extreme and its results so
drastic as to fulfil the Master's words
that unless those days of tribulation
should be shortened no flesh would
Put because of the Election, because
of the Kingdom which will then be set
up. ttiose days will be shortened
brought to an end. Nothing will be
destroyed except that which is in
jurious. The world-wide resubs of that
flaming fire of lurine judgments will
be corrective, preparing men's hearts
for the blessings which the Lord is
prepared then'to give. Thus it is writ
ten, "When the judgments of the Lord
are abroad in the earth, the inhabitants
of the world will learn righteousness.''
It will be noted that St. Peter, in
speaking of that Time of Trouble, men
tions that the heavens ecclesiasticLsui
will be on fire first; and that later,
the earth society and its political,
financial and social organizations v. ill
be involved also. In harmony with
this, our text tells that this sign, or
indication, for the revealing of Messiah
in flaming fire, will first be in the
Chur ch. Furthermore, according to St.
Peter's statement, we are to expect
that the ecclesiastical heavens will pass
away with a great noise a great com
motionbefore the social order is fully
reached by the consuming fire.
The same thought is brought to our
rttcnt'on in Revelation, where a wide
distinction is made between the
nomial church systems, called Baby
lon, and the true Church, which is
admonished in advance to eome out of
Pabylon and to stand in personal rela
tionship to God through Christ. This
general call, which belongs to the end
of the Age, before the judgments come
upon Babylon, reads, "Come out of
her, My people, that ye be not par
takers of her sins, and that ye receive
not of her plagues." The intimation is
that as soon as the loyally obedient
have been gathered out of Babylon
some drastic trouble will come upon
We should not apply this term "Bab
ylon" to individuals, but to great sys
tems, outwardly having a form of
godliness, but really misrepresenting
the Divine character, the Divine Plan,
the true teachings of the Bible. Of
course, the individuals identified with
the systems have more or less respon
sibility, according to their official posi
tion and their intelligence. In similar
proportion these individuals may nave
tribulations in conjunction with the
fall of Babylon. We do not under
stand the term "Babylon" to be ap
plied Scripturally to any sect or party,
but rather to refer to the general con
glomeration of systems and denomina
tions. Likewise. when reading of the
utter destruction that is to come upon
Babylon, we are to differentiate be
tween the systems and the individuals
connected with those systems.
The judgments of the Lord are not
designed to crush or destroy humanity,
but to destroy utterly the systems of
error, bondage and superstition which
have fettered humanity and hindered
them from fuller progress and develop
ment in the knowledge and favor of
God. With the fall of the great sys
tems (Babylon, con fusion men's eyes
will begin to open: the blind will begin
to "se out of obscurity" (Isaiah 20:1S.
As a result, the high praises of God
will arise as a sweet savor.
The fall of Babylon is declared to
come sye"a:;y, suni'eniy figuratively. J
i "in an hour.'- The deseii't'.ons of her
fall are various.' In cue place Ave read
1 that she shall be utterly burned with
lire. The same symbol of tire is used
by St. Peter in referring to the same
trouble and destruction. In another
place we read that Babylon shall be
cat like a great millstone into the seu
and be found bo more at ail.
"Every Eye Shall See Him."
Throughout this Gospel Age, the
Lord's people have with the eye of
faith recognized Jesus as their Redeem
er and Dolheror. But comparatively
few have laid such eyes of faith and
understanding. The majority, as the
Apostle declares, are blinded by Satan
and by error, and fail to get a proper,
true view of Christ. He says that
"the god of this world' has blinded
the minds of all unbelievers. But the
gracious promise of the Lord is that
all the blinded eyes shall be opened.
The experiences of eighteen cen
turies have done little toward opening
the eyes of the world; but the revela
tion o? Messiah in flaming tire will ap
peal to them quickly. They will see
Him thus "livery eye shall se Him,
and these also who pierced Him" the
Jews. Instinctively they will fear. It
may require a considerable time for
them to become fully persuaded that
the One feared is their best Friend,
who gave His life as their Iledomption
priee. and whose judgments in the
earth are for the very purpose of
breaking the bandage of fear, igno
rance superstition, sin. selfishness and
injustice, and of allowing the whole
world to go free from a sin-slavery
whr h has long oppressed them.
In due time they will learn that the
fire of Cod's anger does not burn
against the sinners for whom Christ
died, but merely against their sins. The
learning of this lesson will open their
eyes still more widely and enable them
t' see something of the length, the
breadth, the height and the depth of
God's Love, of winch the Apostle tells.
That the Jews will be in that trouble,
the Bible distinctly marks out. It will
be "the time of Jacob's trouble, but he
shall be saved out of it." (Jeremiah
00:7.) The Gospel Church having been
completed by that time and having
passed beyond the Mil. God's favor
will be rest' it d to Natural Israel; and
the time for the special manifestation
of that favor will be in the dark hour
of Jacob's trouble, when the Jews are
surrounded by enemies. In and through
that trouble the Lord will pour upon
them the sphit of grace and of sup
plication, and they will look upon Him
whom they pierced. (Zechariah 12:10.)
They will discern that they made a
great and horrible mistake in crucify
ing the Friend of Sinners, their long
promised Messiah. We are told that
they shall mourn because of Him, and
that then' the spirit of prayer and sup
plication will come to them and they
wiil see Jesus in His real character.
At or about that same time Divine
favor will be manifested on Israel's
behalf, and tin. Lord will deliver them,
as in olden times. Their eyes of faith
and understanding will open more and
more widely. Kventually, according
to the Bible, they will become the lead
ers of mankind in returning to God.
who will abundantly pardon their
iniquity and grant them a prominent
share in the blessings of His Kingdom.
"Few Stripes" and "Many Stripes."
The great Messiame Kingdom will
not spare the rod. but will inflict pun
ishments for the world's correction in
righteousness. Some will suffer more
and some less, according to the Mas
ter's own statements. Those under
standing the principles of righteous
ness and wilfully Aiolating them will
be beaten heavily, "with many
stripes"; while- others, such as the
heathen, for instance, who knew little,
will receive fewer stripes, proportion
ate to their ignorance. All the stripes,
however, will be reformatory, and with
a view to helping and encouraging the
transgressors to abandon the ways of
iniquity and to walk in the paths of
That will be a happy day for earth's
thousands of millions a Day with the
Lord, a thousand years. Everywhere
there will be evidences of the operation
of Divine Mercy and Justice, and the
necessary lessons will be quickly
learned by all people. We cannot doubt
that even fifty years of Kingdom in
fluence will make a wonderful change
in human affairs and conditions. The
blessing of the Lord will come to the
earth in proportion as God's will shall
be done on earth.
Finally, with all sin eliminated, all
imperfections gone and all the wil
fully wicked destrtyed, every creature
en' earth, as well as in Heaven, will be
heard saying. "Blessing and honor and
glory and power be unto Him that
sifteth upon the Throne and unto the
Lamb forever and ever." Then, and
not till then, will God's will be done
on earth, even as it is done in Heaven;
for not until then will there be a per
fect race capable of doing God's will,
and a tested race, ail of whom will de
light to do His will.
A special lesson to God's people to
day is that now is the Church's time
of calling, acceptance and making their
election sure by hearty obedience to the
Divine'' will. Thus neither shall we be
of the world, who will wail because of
the sign of the Son of Man in the dis
solution of the ecclesiastical heavens,
nor shall we be identified with the
ecclesiastie-al heavens, which are to be
dissolved. Bather, it is our privilege,
as followers of Jesus, to walk in His
steps, to stand for the right, to Ik?
guided of the Holy Spirit, to "come out
of Babylon." to "touch not the unholy
thing." that we may have relationship
and fellowship wit!: the Lord, with
the Savior, with the holy Apostles and
with all th faithful martyrs and foot
step followers of our Master.
