"Why, When and

from the test. "If

come again and re
ceive you." (John
14:.1.) He compli
Sunday by saying that although Hil
y'a" teachings do not come up to the
Bible, nevertheless he is far ahead of
so-called "orthodoxy" on this subject.
Mr. Sunday preaches considerably as
I do on this subject, said the Fastor,
yet still comes far short of my con
ception of the Bible teaching. Mr.
Sunday's prcscntatiou"iecognizes that
the I.rd Jesus at His Second Coming
will establish a world-wide Empire
which will bless the entire world jvith
li"hr 1c n r tv 1 and fullest opportuni
ty to walk in the ways of righteous-
n'ss. To this we agree.
But we disagree with Mr. Sunday's
theory that the thousands of millions
w ho died during the past six thousand
years in ignorance of Christ are to suf
fer tortures to all eternity because of
that ignorance. Amongst these billions
he includes all who have never heard
of .lesus" name in the true sense in
heathen lands, and at home where, he
explains to us. some of them were led
straight down to Hell by the churches
These billions, according to Mr. Sun
day, were very unfairly treated very
We disagree with this and present
the F.ible thought, that the dead are
neither in a fury Furgatory nor in a
tiery Hell, but in the Uible Hell the
tomb. We Insist that the F.ible tench
es that "all that are in their graves
shall hear the voice of the Son of God
and come forth." The saintly will
come forth to the rewards of the
Church in glory with Christ in His
Kingdom. Others will come forth to a
resurrection a raising up out of sin
and death by judgment. See Revised
Version. John 5:28, 29.
These billions who have not intel
ligently heard of Jesus and His sal
vation are not on trial now. Their
death is the penalty of Adam's sin and
not of their personal rejection of Jesus,
whom they never knew. It is to give
these the opportunity of a judgment,
or trial, during the thousand years of
Christ's Ileign. that they will be called
forth from the tomb. As all died
through one man's disobedience, all
are to be awakened and brought forth
to an opportunity of everlasting life
through the otedience of the other
man Christ. The resurrectiou of the
dead, both just and unjust, is their
hope. (Acts !U:ir. Aside from a res
urrection, there is no hope. It is in
view of this that the whole world,
good and bad. are said to "sleep with
-Orthodox" View Is Still Worse.
Those who style themselves "Ortho
dox" are still further astray from the
Bible than is Mr. Sunday. While the
latter projwses Millennial blessings for
the fortunates living at the Second
; Advent. "Orthodoxy" declares to the
contrary that there will he no Millen
nium that there will be no hope for
anybody except the Elect few. They
hold that Instead of establishing His
Kingdom at His Second Advent. Jesus
will destroy the earth and Its Inhabit
ants with fire. They overlook the
teachings of the Lord's Pr.i.yer that
His people should pray "Thy King
dom come," and expect it r and that
they should believe that ultimately
God's will shall be done on earth n
fully as it is now done in Heaven.
They neglect the Scriptures which tell
that Faradise. lost as the Garden of
Eden, is to be restored world-wide
that "the earth Is God's footstool." and
that "He will make , the place of Ilia
feet glorious." Isaiah 05:1; C0:13.
They neglect the Dible declaration
that "the earth abideth forever"; and
that God "created It not in vain, bul
formed it to be inhabited." (Eeclesi

tants generally, refusing the Fope as

fused when they attempt to explain
the Kingdom fur which they pray.
"Thy Kingdom come." and the refer
ence in Revelation to its lasting a thou
sand years. Protestant preachers are
becoming Higher Critics. Evolutionists,
etc, and take little account of the Bi
ble testimony. What a pity that such
do not instead resign their pulpits and
enter business life, where higher stand
ards of honesty prevail!
What Troubles Honest Preachers.
There are honest preachers who be
lieve the Bible, yet find it difficult to
believe respecting Messiah's Kingdom.
Properly enough these argue that if
Jesus has been gloriiied for eighteen
centuries as a Spirit Being, at the right
hand of the Father, and has been pre
paring the Church for the Heavenly
Courts, it would seem to be a retro
gression for Him to return to earth
and establish an earthly kingdom with
soldiers, servants, courtiers, etc. Projv
erly they reason that for the Lord Je
sus to leave the Throne of Heavenly
Glory, and return to sit upon a throne
of gold and ivory, would seemingly be
takiug a backward step.
The difficulty is that these ministers
have slipped a few cogs in the great
Divine Flan of the Ages. What thev
need yet to note in the Bible is that
Christ and His Church, His Bride
class, the Royal Priesthood, the House
hold of Faith, are the only ones of the
human family promised a share in the
Heavenly rewards and blessings that
the Divine arrangement for the re
mainder of mankind is an earthly
Eden, or Paradise, and human perfec
tion iu the Divine likeness. They fail
to see that the saintly Church, now be
ing gathered from the world for eight
een centuries, will compose a Spiritual
Kingdom which, backed by Infinite
Wisdom and Power, will be better
able to serve the world's interests than
could any earthly kingdom; and that,
furthermore, the Divine Plan provides
that the Ancient Worthies, from Abel
down to John the Baptist, are to be
resurrected perfect human beings, who
will be honored by being made "princes
in all the earth" representatives,
agents, of the invisible Spiritual King
dom then in control.
The Kingdom Now In Embryo.
Our Lord's many parables refer to
IILs Church as a Kingdom class, a
Royal Priesthood. This does not sig
nify that He intended them to occupy
places of honor and distinction now.
The Master Himself was neither a
King nor a Priest on earth. His is the
Melchir.edek Priesthood of the Mes
sianic Ace. Then He will also be the
great King over all the earth. Well
did He declare to Pilate, "My King
dom is not of this Age" (John 1S:3Gi.
As Ills saintly followers are to share
in His Kingdom, they also must wait
for its establishment. While waiting
Jthey .pray. "Thy Kingdom come; Thy
will be done on earth, as it is done in
Of this Royal Priesthood the Apos
tle John declares. "The world knoweth
us not." We are kings and priests
only from the Divine standpoint, which
none are able to recognize except "the
brethren." Only in embryo are God's
saints spoken of as the Kingdom class.
They-are now on probation. Jesus
says that the ovrrcomers will be grant
ed to sit with Him in nis Throne, as
actual members of the Royal Priest
hood, to reign with Him a thousand
years. Revelation 3:21: 20 G.
"He Must Reign Until -After
telling about the resurrection
of the dead. St. Paul explains that the
resurrection of the Church to glory,
honor and immortality will be first on
the program. Subsequently all will
come forth, "every man In his own or
der," and Christ shall reign until lie
shall have put down all insubordina
tion. Other Scriptures clearly inform
us that the length of His Reign will
le a thousand years.
From the Bible viewpoint the Thousand-year
Day of Christ is ample for
the great work to which it has been
consecrated by the all-wise Creator
from before the foundation of the
earth. Nor should we forget that all
power In Heaven and eartli is vested
in the One who then will take the
Throne. Neither should we forget that
for eighteen centuries the Church has
b?cfr under special preparat -n and in
struction in the School of Christ, train
ing for their work" as a Royal Priest
hood. They will be able to sympathize
with the groaning creation and to be
merciful, even in the administration of
stripes necessary to many for their as
sistance along the Highway of Holi
ness, then opened up.
Messiah's Kingdom Invisible.'
Some of the noblest minds have been
tepelled from faith In the Second Ad
rent by the thought of an earthly
Kingdom with Christ and the saints in
regal state. Tfcey were quite right In
thinking that earthly court and state
would be beneath the dignity of Mes
slab and His Bride. The Scriptures
declare that Jesus left His glory, bum-
bled Himself to become a man, !n or
der that He might become the great
Sin-Offering for our race. But the Re
deemer prayed to be glorified with the
glory which He bad with the Father
before the world was; and He prom
ised His Church a share in His Heav
enly glory. Did He lead us to expect a
Heavenly glory. Heavenly iuhoritanee
and glorious change from earthly to
Heavenly .conditions, nud will lie give
us. Instead, earthly glory and merely
perfection in the flesh V
How slow we have been to see that
God never puriosed that either Jesus
or His faithful Elect should remain in
the flesh! A few Bible statements mis
understood got us into difficulty. We
read. "Every eye shall see Him." and
forgot that there are eyes -f under
standing as well as natural eyes. We
forgot that Jesus declares that very
few now see or hear only the saintly,
whose eyes of undersanding have been
opened by the anointing of the Holy
Siirit. We forgot that Jesus said. "A
little while and the world seeth Me no
more." When once we discern that He
has been gloriiied that He has been
given a spirit nature again, that He
no longer has the human nature whiih
He surrendered as a Sin-Sacrifice, then
we see why the world will see Him
no more, and why the Church must
be changed by resurrection power be
fore she can see Him.
"I Will Come Again."
Jesus left the. world, not so much in
the sense of going so far away that
He could not s-e His disciples and
communicate with them, but rather in
the sense that He uuuld not see them
or communicate with them. He would
compel them to "walk by faith and
not by sight," to "search the Scrip
tures." ami to receive their spiritual
blessings through the fellowship of
the Spirit of the Truth. By His Holy
Spirit He would lie with them, and not
by personal contact or further mani
festations. His Second Coming would be at the
end of the Age. to awaken His sleei
ing saints and to change them to the
Heavenly state. Thus He would come
again and receive them unto Himself
first the sleeping ones and subse
quently those alive and remaining,
who would experience their resurrec
tion change in the moment of death.
Additionally, in the Harvest with
which the Age ends. He promised to
take special supervision of the gath
ering of His Elect.
This stage of His Coming is called,
iu the Greek. His Parousia His pres
ence. The world is not to know of His
Parousia. On the contrary, it is de
scribed as secret "as a thief la the
night." Jesus described His Parousia.
saying that at that time the world
would be eating, drinking, planting,
building, and know not of His Coming
iu the Harvest of the Age. even as the
world in the days of Noah knew not.
The intimation is. however, that some
of God's people would be made aware
of His Parousia; while others of God's
people, the Foolish Virgins, would be
overcharged with the cares of this life.
and know not.
We cannot here discuss fully how
Christ comes as a thief, but we offer
free of charge a booklet which we
have written with a view to making
the matter very clear. Whoever will
address me Pastor Russell. Brooklyn
N. Y. requesting a copy of Parousia
Booklet will receive a copy free.
"World Seeth Me No More."
If Jesus really meant it when He
said. "A little while and the world
seeth Me no more." how can humanity
know about the new. invisible Kin
dom? The Bible answers most dis
tinctly. It tells of the shining forth
the Epiphania. of the Messianic King
dom. It tells of His Apokalupsis. mani
festation, or revealment "He shall be
revealed iu flaming fire." This flamin
fire siguifies severe judgments, as else
where. These are to be so severe that
the elements of society will melt with
the fervency of the heat in a terrible
Time of Trouble. Additionally, "the
heavens," the ecclesiastical systems,
will be involved, ami will pass away
with a great noise, or commotion. It
is from this revealing' in flaming fire.
Divine censure upon the world, that
the great, the high, the mighty, the
poor, all. shall seek to "hide them
selves in the dens and caves of the
earth" in the social orders and in
affiliation with strong governments,
Gradually mankind will see that it
ts "the wrath of the Lamb" that
causes the "Time of Trouble such as
was not since there was a nation."
The plowshare of trouble will go so
deep that the world will effectually
learn the lesson. As their eyes of
understanding open still more widely,
they will discern the beauties and
blessings of the Messianic Kingdom
"the desire of all nations."
But first The Christ. Jesus the Head
and the Church the Body. Bridegroom
and Bride, must enter into the glory
of the Kingdom. Then will be esta
blished the earthly phase of the King
dom In the hands of the Ancient
Worthies. The world will "see Abra
ham. Isaac. Jacob and all the Proph
ets"; but they will not see the King,
nor the Bride, nor "the virgins her
companions" on the spirit plane. These
will be as invisible to humanity as are
Satan and his demon host at the pres
One of our great obstacles in the
post has been the failure to discern
that God has been presenting two dis
tinct salvations that of the Church to
the spiritual. Heavenly. Divine nature:
I and that of the non-elect, through the
elect Church. To them will come the

In September, 1876, observing that
the hoppers had deposited their eggs
about as thickly as they could be
crowded in my garden paths, where
the earth was trodden hard and solid,
I took a hoe and gradually scraped
them out, thus breaking the sacks
and scattering the eggs on and near
the surface, exposed to the frosts,
sun, rain and snows. After our meet-
ing adjourned on the 17th, I took a
magnifying glass and .examined the
surface of the ground closely, and
found no eggs. The birds or elements
had evidently destroyed them. But

apparently as thick as I left them in

hatching, and now, so far as I can see,
all are hatched out and full of life and
activity. They have no food except
as they devour each other, of which I
see no signs as yet. I propose to see
how long they will live on nothing.
