JOhrniiah's Wonderful Midnight Visit to
Jerusalem ia Kulns and the Issoa it

In a recent sermon at the Brooklyn
Tabernacle llev. T.DeAVittTalmage'a sub
ject was "The Moonlight Hide," and the
text, Xebetniah ii. 15: "Then I went up

gate of the valley, aud so returned." lie
A dead city is more suggestive than a
living city past Itotnethau present It inn
ruins rather than newly-frescoed
cathedral. Hut the best time to visit a
ruin is by moonlight. Ttio Colosseum is
far more tasciuating to the traveler after
sundown than In-fore. You niuy stand by
daylight amid the monastic ruins of Mel
rose Abbey aud study shafted oriel and
rosetted stone and raulliou. but they throw
their strongest witchery by moonlight.
Some of you rcmemlier what the enchanter
of Scotland said in tbo "Lay of the Last
"Wouldsttliou xiew lair Melrose aright.
Go vihit it by the pale moonlight."
Washington Irving describe the An
dalusian moonlight upon the Albamhra
ruins as amounting to an enchantment.
My text presents you Jerusalem in ruins.
The tower down. The gates down. The
walls down. Every thing down. Nehe
minh on horseback, by moonlight looking
upon the ruins. While he rides, there are
omu friends on foot going with him, for
they do not want the many horses to dis
turb the suspicions of the people. These
people do not know the secret of Nehe
uiinh'i heart, but they are going as a sort
of body guard. I hear the clicking hoofs
of the horse on which "Seheininh rides, as
he guides it this way and that, into this
gate and out of that, winding through
that gate amid tho debris of once
great Jerusalem. Now the horso comes to
a dead hull nt the masonry where ho can
not pass. Now he shies oil at the charred
timlHTs. Now he conies along where the
water under the moonlight flashes from
the mouth of tho bruzeti dragon after
which tho gate was named.
Heavy hearted Nehiniali. Killing in
and out, now by his old home desolated,
now by the defaced temple, now amid tho
Kcars of the city that had g"no down un
d) r battering ram and coullugration. The
escorting party knows not wlintNehctninh
means. Is he getting ciazy? liavo his
own personal sorrows, ndde 1 to the sor
rows of tho nation, unbalanced his intel
lect!' Still the midnight exploration goes
on. Nehemiah on horse back rides through
the lifch gate, by the towvrof the furnace,
by tho King's pool, by the drugon well, in
and out, until the midnight rid-) is com
p oted, and Nehemiah dismounts from his
horse, and to the atnnzpd ami confounded
and incredulous body guurd, declares the
dead secret of his heart when he says:
"Come, now, let us build Jerusalem."
"What, Nehemiah. have you any money J"
"No." "Have you any kingly authority?"
"No." "Have you any eloquence" "No."
Yet that midnight, moonlight ride of Ne
hem'ah resulted in the glorious rebuilding
of the city of Jerusalem. Tho people
knew not how the thing was to le done,
but with great enthusiasm they cried out,
"Ileitis rise up now and build the city."
Some people laughed and said it could not
lie done. Some people were infuriate and
offered physical violence, saying the thing
should not be done. Hut the workmen
went right on. standiugon the wall, trowel
in one hand, sword in the other, until the
work was gloriously completed. At thai
very time, in Greece, Xcnophon waswrit
iug a history, and lMato was making
philosophy, and Demosthenes was rat
tling his rhetorical thunder, but all of
them together did not do so much for the
world as this midnight, moonlight ride of
prying courageous, homesick, close
My subject first impresses me with the
idea what an iiitenso thing is church af
fection. Seize the bridle of thathoiso and
stop Nehemiah. Why you are risking
your life hcio in night Your horse will
.tumblo over these iitms and full on you.
Slop this useless exposure of your life.
No; Nehemiah will not stop. He at last
telK us tho whole story. Ho lets us know
he was nu exile ill a fnr-distnut laud, and
he wus a servant, a cup-bearer in the pal
ace of Artuxerxes LoiigimatiUs, and one
day w Idle he was handing the cup of wine
to the Kin;;, the King said to him, "What
is the matter with you!' You are not sick.
I know you must havo hud somt gient
trouble." What is the matter with you?"
Then he told tho King hoiv that beloved
lernsnleiii was knocked doivu. how that
his father's tomb had been desecrated:
how that the templo had been dishonored
and defaced; how that tin wa'ls wus scat
tered and broken. "Well," says King
Aitiixerxe, "what do yoii want?"
"Well," said the cup-bearer N-hemiah,
"1 want to go home. 1 want to tix up the
grave of my father. 1 want to restore the
beuuty of the temple. 1 want to rebuild
the ninsonry of the city wall. ISesides, 1
want passports so tbnt 1 shall not hi hin
dered in my journey. And lsides that,"
a you will hud in the context, "1 waut an
order on the man who keeps your forest
for just so much timber as 1 may need for
the lebuildmg of the city."
"How long shall you be gone?" said the
King. The time of tilxeneo is nrranged.
In hot haste thi seeming adventurer
conies to Jerusalem, ami in my text we
liud htm on horseback, in the midnight,
riding around the rums. It is through the
spectacles of this scene that we discover
the anient attachment of Nehemiah for
sacred Jerusalem, which in all ages has
b-en the type of the Church of God, our
Jerusalem, which we love just as much as
Neht-uuah loved his Jeiusalem. The fact
is that you love the Church of God so
much that there is no spot on earth so
sacred, miles' It is your own fireside. The
Church has been to you so much comfort
and illumination that nothing makes you
so irate as to have it talked against. If
there have been times when you have been
carried into captivity by sickness, you
longrd for the Church, our holy Jerusa
lem, just as much a Nehemiah loused for
his Jerusalem, and the llr.-t day y.ucame
out you came to the bouse of the Lord.
When the temple was in ruins" as ours
was years ago. like Nehemiah. you walked
around and looked at it, and in the moon
light you stood listening if you could not
hear the voice of tho dead organ, the
psalm of the expiied S.ibbaths. What
Jeiusalem was to Nehemiah the Church
of God is to you. Skeptics and infidels
may scolT at the Church as an obsolete af
fair, as a relic of the dark ages, as a con
vention of goody-goody people, but all
the impression they have ever made on
your mind against the Church of God is
absolutely nothing. You would make
more sacrifices for it to-day than for any
other institution, and if it wcrw need
ful you would die in its defense. You can
take the words of the kingly poet as he
aid. "If I forget thee. O Jerusalem, let my
right hand forgot her cunning." You un
derstand ia your own experience the
pathos the home-sickness, the courage.
the holy enthusiasm of Nehemiah in his
midnight, moonlight ride around the ruins
of his beloved Jerusalem.
Again, my text impresses me with the
fact that before reconstruction there must
be au exploration of ruins. Why was not
Nehemiah asleep under tlie covers? Why
was not his horse tabled in the midnight?
Let the police of the city arrest this mid
ajujtjchlcrjjunspme mischief. No, Ne
In this gate, out that gate, east, west,
north, south. All through the ruins. The
ruins must be explored before the work of
reconstruction can begin. The reason
that so many people in this day appa
rently converted do not stay converted is
because tbey did not first explore the ruin
of their own heart. The reason that there
are so many professed Christians who in
this day lie and forge and steal and com
mit adultery and go to the penitentiary is
because they do not learn the ruins
of their own heart. They have not found
out that "the heart if deceitful above all
things and desperately wicked." They
bad an idea that tbey were almost right
and they built religion as a sort of exten
sion, as an ornamental cupola. There was
a superstructure of religion built ou a sub
stratum of unrepented sins. The trouble
with a good deal of modern theology is
that instead of building on the right
foundation it builds on the debris of an
unregenerated nature. They attempt to
rebuild Jerusalem before, in the midnight
of conviction, they have seen the ghastll
nessof 1 ho ruin. They have such a poor
foundation for their religion that the first
northern storm of temptation blows them
down. I have no faith in a man's conver
sion if he is not converted in the old
fashioned way John liunyau'rf way, John
Wesley's way, John Calvin's way, Paul's
way, Christ's way, God's way. A dentist
once said to m: "Does that hurt" Said
I: Of course it hurts. It is in your busi
ness as in my profession. We have to
hurt before we can help."
You will never understand redemption
until you understand ruin. A mm tells
me that some one is a member of the
Church. It makes no impression on my
mind at all. I simply want to know
whether ho was converted in the old fash
ioned way, or whether he was converted
in the new fashioned way. If be was con
verted in the old fashioned way he will
stand. If he was converted in the new
fashioned way he will not stand. That is
all there is about it. A man comes to me
to talk about religion. The first question
I ask him is: "Do you feel yourself to be a
sinner?" If he says: "Well, I yes,"
the hesitancy makes me feel that that
man wants a ride on Noheniinb's horse by
midnight through the ruins in by the
gate of his affections, out by the gate of
his will, uud before he has got through
with that midnight rido he will di op the
reins on the horse's ueck, and will take
his light band and smita ou his
heart and nay: "God be merciful
to mu a sinner;" and before he has
stabled his horse he will take his feet
out of the stirrups, and will slide down ou
tho ground, and ho will kneel, crying,
"Have mercy on me, O God, according
unto Thy loving kindness, according unto
tbo multitude of Thy tender mercies; blot
out my trnusgrcssions, for I acknowledge
ray transgressions and my sins are ever
before Thee." Ah, my friends, you see
this is not a coinplimentaiy gospel. That
is what makes some psople so mad. It
comes to a man of a million dollars and
impenitent in his sins aud says, "You're a
pauper." It comes to a woman of fairest
cheek, who has never repented, and says,
"You're a sinner." It comes to a man
priding himself on his independence and
says, "You aro bound band and foot to
the devil." It comes to our entire
race aud says, "You're a ruin, a
ghastly ruin, an illimitable ruin."
Satan sometimes says to me, "Why
do you preach that truth? Why don't
you preach a gospel with no repentance in
it? Why don't you flatter men's hearts so
that you make them feel all right? Why
don't you preach humanitarian gospel
with no repentance in it, saying nothing
about tho ruiu, talking all the time about
redemption?" I say, "Get thee behind me,
Satan." I would rather lead live souls
the right way than twenty thousand the
wrong way. The redemption of the gospel
it a perfect farce if there is uo ruin. "The
whole need not a physician, but they that
are sick." "If any one, though be be an
angel from Heaven, preach any other than
this," says the apostle, "let him be ac
cursed." There must bo ths midnight ride
over the ruins before Jerusalem can be
built. There must bo tho clicking of tbo
hoofs before there can be the ringing of
Again. My subject gives me a specimen
of busy, triumphant, sadness. If there was
any man in the world who had a right to
moie and give up every thing as lost it
was Nehemiah. You say, "He was a cup
liearcr in the palace of Shuehatt aud it
was a grand place." So it was. The hall
of that palace was 200 feet square and the
roof covered over thirty-six marble
pillars, each pillar sixty-eight feet high;
and tho intense blue of the sky and the
deep green of tho forest foliage and the
white of tho driven snow nil hung tremb
ling in the upholstery. Hut, my friend,
you know- very well that line architecture
will not put down home-sickness. Yet
Nehemiah did not give up. Then when
you see him going unrmg those desolate
streets and by these dismantled towers
and by the torn up grave of his father you
would suppo.e that be would have been
disheartened, and that he would have dis
mounted from his horse ami gone to his
loom and said: "Woe is me. My fathei's
grave is torn up. The temple is dis
honored. The walls nre broken down. I
have no money with which to rebuild. I
wish 1 hail never been born. 1 wish
I were dead." Not so says Nehemiah.
Although he had a greit grief
so intense that it excited the
cotumentaiy of his King, yet that, penni
less, expatriated Nemehiah rouses himself
to rebuild the city. He gets his permission
of nhsence. He gets' his passports. He
hastttis away to Jerusalem, lty niht on
horseback he rides through the ruins. He
oveicotnoi the most ferocious opposition.
He arouses the piety and patriotism of the
people, aud in le.s than two months,
namely, in fifty-two days, Jerusalem was
rebuilt. That's what I call busy and tri
umphant sadue. My friends, the whole
temptation is with you, when you have
trouble, to do just the opposite to the be
havior of Nehemiah. and that is, to give
up. You say, "I bavo lot my child aud
can never smile again." You say, "I hate
lost my propeity aud I uever can repair
my fortunes." You say, I have fallen
into sin and 1 never can start again for a
new life." If Satan can make you form
that resolution, and mske you keep it, he
has ruined you. Trouble is not sent to
crush you, but to rouse you. to animate
you. to propel you. The blacksmith does
not thiust the iron into the forge and thea
blow away with the bellows, and thea
bring the hot iron out on the anvil and
Wat with stroke after stroke to ruia the
iron, but to prepare it for letter use.
O, that the Lord Got of Nehemiah would
roase up all broken-hearted people to re
build. Whipped, betrayed, shipwrecked,
imprisoned. Paul went right on. The
Italian martyr Algerius sits in his dun
geon writing a letter, aud he dates it
"From the delectable orchard of ths Leon
tine prison." That is what 1 call triumph
ant sadness. 1 know a mother who buried
her baby on Friday and on Sabbath ap
peared in the house o God and said:
"Give me a class; give me a Sabbath
school class. I have no child now left me,
and 1 would like to have a class of little
children. Give me real poor children.
Give me a class of the back street." That.
1 say, is beautiful. That is triumphant
sadness. At three o'clock this afternoon,
in a beautiful parlor in Philadelphia a
parlor pictured and statuetted there will
be from teu to tweatv destitute children
of the street. It has been so every Sab
bath afternoon at three o'clock for
many years. These destitute chftdrca
receive religious instruction, concluding
with cake and sandwiches. Heir do
I know that that has bees going
on for many yean? I knew it ia this
way. That was the first hoaae ia Phila
delphia where 1 was called to confort a
The father and mother alssost idolized that
boy, aad the sob and shriek of that father
and Bother as tbey hung over the cosln
resound in soy ears to-day. There seemed
to be no us of praying, for when I knelt
down to pray the outcry in the room
drowned out all the prayer. But the Lord
comforted that sorrow. They did not for
get their trouble. If you should go on the
snowiest winter afternoon into Laurel
Hill you would find a monument with the
word "Walter" inscribed upon it, and a
wreath of fresh flowers around the name.
I think there has -not been an bour all
these years, winter or summer, when
there was not a wreath of fresh flowers
around Walter's name. But the Christian
mother who sends those flowers there,
having no child left, Sabbath afternoons
mothers ten or twenty of the lost ones of
the street. That is beautiful. That is
what I call busy and triumphant sadne.s.
Here is a man who has lost his property.
He does not go to hard driukiug. He does
not destroy his own life. He com is and
says: "Harness me for Christian work.
My money's gone. I have no treasures on
earth. I want treasures in Heaven. I
have a voice and a heart to praise God."
You say that that man has failed. He has
not failed hj has triumphed. O, I wish
I could persuade all the people who have
any kind of trouble never to give up. I
wish they would look at the midnight
rider of the text, and that the four hoofs
of that beast on which Nehemiah rode
might cut to pieces all your discourage
ments and hardships and trials. Give up!
Who it going to give up, when on the
bosom of Go 1 he can have all bis troubles
hushed? Give up! Never think of giving
up. Are you borne down with poverty?
A little chihl was found holding her dead
mother's hand in the darkness of a tene
ment house, and some one coming in, the
little girl looked up, while holding her
dead mother's hand, and said, 't), I do
wish that God had made more light for
poor folks." My dear, God will be your
light, God will bo your shelter, God will
be your home. Are you borne down with
the bereavements of life? Is the house
lonely now that the child is gone? Do not
give up. Think of what the old sexton
said when the minister asked him why he
put so much care ou the little graves in
the cemetery so much more care than ou
the larger graves, and theold sextou said:
"Sir, you know that 'of such is tho king
dom of Heaven,' and I think the Saviour
is pleased when he sees so much white
clover growingaround theselittle graves."
Hut when the minister pressed the old sex
ton for a more satisfactory nnswer, the
old sexton said: "Sir, about these larger
graves, I don't know who are the Lord's
saints aud who are not; but you know,
sir, it is clean different with the bairns."
O, if you have had that keen, tender, inde
scribable sorrow that comes from the
loss of a child, do not give up. The old
sextou was right. It is all well with the
bail us. Or, if you have sinned grievously
sinned until you have been cast out by
society, do not give up. Perhaps there
may bo in this house one that could truth
fully utter the lamentation of another:
"Once I was as pure as the snow, hut I fell
Fell like a snowtlake. from Heaven to hell
Fell, to tie trampled as tilth in the street
Fell, to be sootloil at, sptt on and heat;
Praying, cursing, wishing to die.
Selling my soul to whoever would buy.
Dealing In shame for a morsel of bread.
Mating the living aud fearing the dead "
Do not give up. One like unto the Boa
of God comes to you to-day saying, "Go
aud sin no more." while He cries out to
your assailants; "Let him that is without
sin cast the first stone at her." Oh ! there
is no reason why any one in this house by
reason of any trouble or sin should give
up. Are vou a foreigner and in a strange
land? Nehemiah was an exile. Are you
penniless? Nehemiah was poor. Are you
homesick? Nehemiah was homesick. Are
you broken-hearted? Nehemiah was
broken-hearted. Hut just see him in the
text. riding along the sacrileged
grave of his father, and by the
dragon well and through the fish gate,
and by the king's pool, in and out, in and
out, the moonlight falling on the broken
masonry, which throws a long shadow at
which the horse shies, and nt the same
time that moonlight, kindling up the feat
ures of this man till you see not only the
mark of sad reminiscence, but the cour
age, the hope, the enthusiasm of a man
who knows that Jerusalem will be re
builded. 1 pick you up to-day out of your
sins and out of your sorrow and I put you
against the warm heart of Christ. "The
eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath
are tbeeverlasting arms."

Human nature is always Lurking some

out its wishes, yet it is universally cvo-
j ceded that no permanent enjoyment ca be
had without the savor of health, waich

Tho great, ruddy fanner pines because he

The grain of salt Is wanting.
How to sccuro and retain the savor of
health iu tho midst of this rushing, nervous,
over-worked generation is a problem worthy

all, but symptoms of advanced Kidney Dis

disease. Unless remedied there will be a
complete breaking down of tho great
blood-purifying organs, the kidneys, and
they will be excreted, piece-meal, through
Now, m the spring of tho year, owing to
the extra work which has been put up-m tbo
Kidneys and Liver, through a meat diet dur
ing tho winter months, these symptoms aro
mora pronounced, and the danger to tho
patient correspondingly increased. It is
therefore imperative that the poisoned blood
bo eradicated, uud that t he Kidneys be put
in complete health, which can bo speedily
and effectually accomplished by tho usoof
Warner's Safe Cure, a tried und proved
tpecitlc in hundreds of thousands of cases.
