Russell preached
here today on the
text. "Sanctify
tlieui tMrouh Thy
Truth; Thy Word
is Truth." (Job a
17:17.) He soke
us luiiows:
Toda r we find

jnrity of iKopie

iilMut the Wordof
God. so that sis a matter of fact our
great colleges teach nothing iertainiua
to the I'ible. Years aso it was quite
custoiuarv that the Bible should hare
a prominent place in the schools, and
the pupils were till under religions In
fluences; for uearly every college was
under the control of some denomina
tion. This gavt? them a sectarian Lias,
however; and t wbalever extent they
were sectarian they were not free to
study Truth.
P.ut the world 5n Its wisdom has lecu
leaving everything pertaining to the
Bible. Today our college bred men are
the greatest opixments of the Word of
;od. The great majority of those
graduated from our colleges within the
past thirty years are total unbelievers
In the Bible as 'iods Inspired Word.
Many of them are ministers, who select
their texts from the Bible and who re
tain a certain respect for it. Their
parents venerated it, and so the son
still cherish it as they would an old
friend. They regard it as they would
a pair of old shoes that their great
grandfather had used not that the
shoes would have any intrinsic value,
but that they were great-grandfather's
shoes. Then the liibie is n convenient
place from which to pet texts. They
know, too. that a great rnany ieople
are not college-bred and still reverence
the Old I look. They like to condescend
to the extent of showing taat they do
not altogether ignore the sentiments
of the common people.
If cross-examined carefully, prob
ably ninety-five of every hundred of
these would say, "I do not believe the
Bible Is the Word or God." Although
many muiisters do U"t so express them
selves in the pulpit, they do ;,o in pri
Tate. As an instance of clerical un
belief in the teachings of Scripture,
take the case of I'ev. Ir. Aked. This
well'kuown clergyman moved some
years aso to the l'a'-iHc Ctust. and be
came president of the Church Federa
tion In Han Francisco. Iioth orally and
In print this gentleman expressed .hi
utter uultelief iu the prehuman exist
ence of our Ixrd Jesus his lelief be
ing that our Lord was merely uu ordi
nary man. a Cue man. This view was
published broadcast.
' The next day somebody came out in
the Pan Francisco paper and said
that with such sentiments Ir. Aked
should resipn bis position us president
of the Church Federsitior, that cer
tainly nobody would 1 desirable In
that position who did not believe that
Jesus had more than human natnre
who thus discarded the I'ible.. The
day following. Dr. Aked resigned, say
ing that he did not wish to offend any
body, etc. The Church Federation of
ministers met. and re-elected him on
the hash; of his profession that he did
not believe that Jesus Christ had
either a prehuman existence or a su
jerior birth! As far ns 1 know. Dr.
Aked is still president of the Church
Federation; and those xniu&ters that
re-elected him, seventy-eight out of a
tiundred, were willing to come out in
Ijublic and say so.
Why True Religion Is Discounted.
The poiat to which I r.m callins at
tention is this: The colleges and the
ministers have abandone the Word
of God. The preachers like to select
a text from it, Just as they might on
other occasions juote from Shake
speare. So far es we may Judge, this
Is the general sentiment .amongst
them. Are they then sanctified by the
Truth, the Word of God? If they de
clare that God has given a message to
the world or to the Church, where do
they find It, if not in the I'-ibleS
The majority of the preac-liers do not
Telieve in personal inspiration, except
in the sense In which some eople may
le said to have a sort of Intuition for
music, etc., and so might be called In
spired that artist was inspired when
painting that pi'-ture or composing that
tune. Rutsas for any belief in snch
Inspiration as the Bible teaches that
"holy men of God spake c.s they were
moved by the Holy Spirit," not know
ing what they were saying I doubt
that five per cent, of the ministers thus
believe the Bible to Ik; t'u- Word
of God. (2 reter 1 21 ;T Feter 1 A0-V2.)
iWith the religious teachers and preach
ers in this condition of u:aleHf. is it
Any wonder that true religion is at a
L M'-
itsccrcnt with the people? It would be
strange if matters were different.
Jesus said. When the Son of Man
cometh, shall He find faith upon the
earth?" You are witnesses with m?
that He has come and has found very
little faith. 2 Peter 3:3-9.
The Wise Shall Understand."
Away back in the time of the Prophet
Daniel. God declared that iu the Time
cf the End He would grant a special
blessing upon Bible studeuts. (Daniel
12:1-10.) And here we are, down in
the Time of the End! Many are run
ning to' and fro in automobiles, elec
tric trams, steam railroads, etc. Knowl
edge is Increasing everywhere. But
the worldly-wise do not understand;
for these things of God's Word are
hidden from the wise and prudent, and
revealed unto babes those not too wise
in matters pertaining to this world.
(Matt. 11:23.) These accept the Word
of God and are guided by it. To these,
therefore, has come a great blessing.
Our I-ord also sioke about the end
of the Gospel Age. His. parable of The
Ten Virgins refers not to the world,
but to the Church the wise and the
foolish iu the -Church of Christ. (Mat
thew 23:1-13.) In the end of the Age
nil the virgin?-, all justified lHievers.
were ready to meet Him. But the
Bridegroom tarried, and for a while
all the virgins slumbered and slept.
Then came the Message. "Behold the
Bridegroom" He is here! All the ir
glns awakened. The wise virgins had
oil in their vessels. They trimmed
their lamps (PsaLm llf:103i: they saw
the Truth, and were prepared to follow
the Bridegroom In to the Marriage of
the Lamb.
But the foolish virgins did not have
the light. When they asked the wise
virgins for oil, the wise virgins declar
ed that they could not spare it. The
oil represents the Holy Spirit aud the
enlightenment which it brings. The
foolish Tirgius go to buy when they
give time for study and investigation
time taken from business, pleasure and
worldly affairs, that they may obtain
the oil which God is pleased that His
people should have. Those who do not
find time for investigation do not wish
to have the oil. the light. Although
they are true Christians, yet they are
n t willing to pay the price and get
the oil. Whoever is now rejoicing in
the light of Present Truth will testify
that it cost hi in something something
of worldly influence, time, attention,
thought to have the oil and the light,
to make ready to go in to the Marriage.
How well the Master understood the
present situation! God wished the light
to cost something. To some of oideu
time tur Lord said, "Sit down and
count the cost how much the light
will cost you what discipleship will
cost. After having put your hand to
the plow, do not look longingly lack
to the things of the world. God ts not
pleased with such service. Whoever
prefers the world, the flesh and - the
Devil may stay with them. Imrfng
the Millennial Age the Ixrd will deal
with that class, and will give them
mercy, blessings. But now He is call-,
iii- for a special class that delight to
do the Father's will, that do not need
to 1 urged. pushed and whipped.
They must have the spirit of the
Master, of whom it is written: I de
light to do Thy will, O My God. Thy
Law is written in My heart.
The Church Calied, Not Compelled.
Should any of this class come under
a measure of difficulty, and teinjo-
rarily lcome weak in the doing of the
Lord's will. He will give them the
necessary cxerienecs. if their hearts
are right. He will awaken them from
their lethargy. Just as in the parable
all the foolish virgins were awakened.
God Is not seeking to deceive ieople
or to force them into the Kingdom.
Dnrinir this Gospel Age He lias merely
sent forth His Message to gather out
those who wished to respond. God
has been taking out a people for nis
name using no force, no compulsion,
merely His Word. We heard the call.
sieaking peace through Jesus Christ.
Our hearts res'tonded. and we came
back into harmony with God. The
Word informed us that through the
death of nis Sou God had made all
arrangements for covering our sins;
and that lie was willing to receive us
Just ns if we had not been sinners
willing to take us into His family and
make us His heirs, joint heirs with
Jesus Christ our Lord.
But all this was merely the voice, the
promise, of God. There was nothing
to Insist upon our becoming children
of OM; and If we were received into
His family li was because we willing
ly, intentionally, gave ourselves to Him.
All through the Gospel Age the Word
of God has gone forth. If lie had sent
force. He could quickly have gathered
all that He desired. After a few mira
cles people would have waked up and
said. "What will hapren to us If we do
not get right with God? That class
r.-ill Ik? dealt with by and by. Messiah's
Kingdom will manifest the J'owcr and
the Wisdom of God.
The Truth a Satisfying Portion.
Coming liack to our text, we see that
the Lord sent forth His Word, to ac
complish a certain mission, nis Word
Is Truth not truth on every subject,
hut on the most important -ones. Of
these Important subjects the principal
one is that which God purposes to
teach all His intelligent creatures
oltedience to Himself. All other educa
tion will prove to Ik? valueless, perhaps
injurious, uuless associated with obe
dience to God.
The world is becoming very much dis
contented. People are unhappy; they
craie more money and less work. No
body is satisfied except true Christians.
The majority of professed Christians
are under the delusions of. the present
time. But. the true Christian has that
which Js satisfactory. Having given
his ail to the Lord, he has received
the blessed thnt all things
shall work' together for good to them
that love God. to the called according
to His purposes. Therefore he is con
tent to t the Heavenly Father shape
his affairs." Should he get out of work,
God knows how to provide employ
ment. He could feed Elijah by the
brook, the ravens bringing the Prophet
the necessary food. 1 Kings 17:5. G.
One cannot fellowship with the
world, and at the same time be great
in the Lord. We prefer to le amongst
those to whom the Master will say
"Well done, good and faithful servant
thou hast leen faithful over a few
things; 1 will make thee ruler over
many things. Enter thou into the joy
of thy I.ord." The knowledge that God
is for us and loves us is a satisfying
portion to heart and mind. Havin
left the world to follow Jesus and dai
ly seeking to walk in His steps, the
Church class are loved of the Father.
They are the ones whom He has called.
The Hidden Mystery. ,
In the beginning God created the
Lord Jesus, the Logos. (Colossiaus
1:13; Revelation 3:14.) Thee the Logos
as nis active Agent, made the differ
eut orders of spirit beings, ami finally
man. (John 1:1-3.) After man had
fallen into sin. God said, "We will let
him "have his experience with death
and its concomitauts. In due time I
will send a great Bedeemer. to ransom
Adam and all his posterity. During
the Seventh Thousand-Year Day of
man's existence this Redeemer will
take charge of humanity. Meautime 1
will have nothing to do with them until
they are restored to erfection."
But while God was thus resting from
His earthly creation. He considered it
a good time to bring in a New Crea
tion. The; first of this New Creation
was the One who redeemed mankind.
He passed through His experiences and
testings eighteen hundred and more
years ago. But this was not all of the
Divine Plan. As the Apostle says.
there was a secret which God had kept
hidden from liefore the foundation of
the world His Purjwe to have not
merely a great Bedeemer for mankind,
but a ieople taken out from amongst
humanity to l the Church of the
First-loms. These were to constitute
the New Creation, of which the Be
deemer would lcco!!ie the Head.
This work of gathering the Church
class has been progressing for nearly
nineteen centuries. All who have leeu
lK'gotten of the Holy Spirit are nietu
Urs of the New Creation, to whom old
things have passed away. a:d all
things have become new. (2 Corin
thians 3:17.) From the very- moment
of their spirit-beget-ting, the light of
the Truth begins to enlighten the
minds of these New Creatures. They
legin to see something of the lengths
and breadths, the heights and depths.
of God's character. It is a revelation.
The Word of God is illuminating: the
Holy Spirit has great illuminating
power, and gradually flit more and
more with the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God.
Sanctified by the Truth.
Of tliis class God says, "Gather My
saints together unto Me, those who
have made a Covenant with Me by
sacrifice." (l'salm 30:3.) He does not
say Those who have made a covenant
to enter some church system, although
some may have made a covenant with
God and ignorantly with some church
system also. Many people like to
count themselves In amongst God's
eople. yet they have never entered
into a covenant with nim. Apparently
they think that they will receive the
same reward as will those who have
entered into such a covenant; but they
are mistaken. No oue will receive the
Prize of the IHgh Calling except those
who have entered the race In the pro-
er wav and have run according to the
prescriled rules.
Whoever makes this Covenant of
Sacrifice Is walking in the Master's
footsteps. Our Lord made it at the
age of thirty years. At Jordan lie
gave nimself, a perfect man. His time.
His will everything to do the Fa
ther's will, whatever that might be.
The Father indicated His acceptance
by iK'gctting our Lord with the Holy
Spirit and by giving Him the enlight
enment that goes with it. Whoever
would be His footstep follower must
also covenant to give his time, his In
fluence, his money everything to the
Iord. Then the Ixrd says, "I will
place in your care those things which
you have given Me. If you demon
strate your faithfulness as steward of
these little things. I will know that
you can be trusted with the greater
things of the Kingdom. If you Try to
withhold what you have consecrated,
you have not the spirit for which I am
looking. I am seeking those who love
Me and desire to serve Me.
From first to last the Bible is in har
mony with itself. This is God's Mes
sage. This is His way of reaching His
Elect, whom He desires to take out
of the world. For nineteen centuries
the Church has beeii engaged in call
ing men apart from the world that they
might gain Divine favor and joint-heir-ship
with Jesus in His Kingdom.
"Sanctify them through Thy Truth;
Thy Word Is Truth." The world does
not have this Mcssair- : therefore itn
truth cannot sanctify. Mankind are
seeking otherwise, and are -ucttins
more or less confused and further away
from God through their studies. It Is
a remarkable fact that we seldom find
any one well versed in the sciences
who has any faith in God or in the
Bible. Men have only the truth that
the rrophct Moses discounted. (Tie
brews 11:20.) This is the world's por
tion today. But the Science which will
sanctify toward God. the Science in
which we are in harmony with God. In
which we are now happy and will be
dnring the Time of Trouble, is ours.
Faithful Is He who has called us. who
will also sanctify us. according to the
riches of His grace in Christ Jesus our
Lord. 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 24.
