In a late sermon at Brooklyn on the
rhristian warfare llcv. T. DeWitt Tal-
;o took his text from II. Samuel.

ilcil. Klea.ar and three of his com
rades went into tho battle and swept
the field, for four men with God on
their side are .stronger than a whole
battalion with Col against them. "Fall
back!" shouted the commander of the
rhilistme army. The cry ran along
the host: "Fallback!" Klea.ar, hitv
hiTsn -pt the field, throws himself on
the ground to rest, but the muscles and
sine vis of his hand had been so long
bent around the hilt of th sword that
the hilt was embedded in the flesh, and
the cold wire of the hilt had broken
through the skin of the palm of the
hand, and he could not drop this sword
which he had so gallantly wielded.
'Hit hand clave unto the sword." That
is what I call magnificent fighting for
the Lord Cod of Israel. And we want
more of it- I look at F.lea.ar's hand,
and I come to the conclusion that he
took tin- sword with a very tight grip.

lervcd this Kible just ih it is. and it is
a Damascus blade The severest test
to which a sword can be put in a sword
factory is to wind the blade around a gun
barrel like a ribbon, and then when the
sword is let loose it Hies back to its ow n
shape. So the .sword of Cod's truth has
been fully tested, and it is bent this
way and that way. and wound this
way and that way, but it nluaj s comes
back to its own shape. Think of it! A
book written eighteen centuries ago.
and some of it thousands of years ajro, j
and yet in our time the sale of this
l'.ook is more than -JO. (MM) copies every
week and more than a million copies a
year. I say now that a bonk which is
divinely inspired and divinely kept and
divinely scattered is a weapon worth
holding a tight grip of. Yon give up
the ISible, you give up any part of it,
-mid you give up pardon and peace, and
life and Heaven. I. not be ashamed,
young man, to have the world know
that yon are a friend of the Itible. This
book is the friend of all that is good,
and is the sworn enemy of all tliaf-i
bad. .O, hold on to it. Do net take
frArt.tnjf-i iwwitywy7trib rest away.
Hold on to :;11 of it.
There are so many people now who
do not know. You ask them if the s ml
is immortal, and they say: "I guess it
is I don't know; perhap it is, perhaps
it isn't." Is the Itible true? "Well,
perhaps it is, and perhaps it isn't; per
haps it may be figurative-, and per
haps it may be partly, and perhaps it
may not be at all." They despise what
they eall the apostolic creed; but if
their own eree I were written out it
would read like this: "I believe in
nothing.the maker of Heaven and earth,
and in nothing which it hath sent,
which nothing was born of nothing,
and which nothing was dead and
buried and descended into nothing, and
arose from nothing, and ascended t.i
nothing, and now sitteth at the right
band of nothing. 1 believe in the holy
agnostic church and in the e.miniunion
of nothingarians, and in the forgiveness
of nothing, and the resurrection of
nothing, and in the life that never shall
That is the creed of tens of thousands
of people in this day. If von have a
mind to adopt such a theory I will not.
"1 believe in Cod the Father Almighty,
.Maker ot Heaven anil earth, anil in
.lesus Christ, and in the holy catholic
church, and in the communion of saints
and in the life everlasting Amen." O,
when I see Klea.ar taking such a stout
grip of the sword in the battle against
sin and for righteousness I come to the
conclusion that we ought to take a
stouter grip of Cod's eternal truth, the
sword of righteousness
As 1 look at Klcazar's hand I also
notice his spirit of sad forgetfulness.
He did not notice that tie hilt of the
sword was eating throi:h the palm of
his hand. He did r't know it hurt
him. As he went oe into the con.'iict
he was so anxious -r the victory that
he forgot himself "i that hilt uilgh'
l-o never so deenl "to the pain of his
hand it could n' disturb h:m "His
hand clave tint li,lJ swori." O. my
brothers and s.ms. let us gi into the
Christian con'1 with tlie spirit of ab
negation. WO cares whether the
world praiseUsor denounces us? What
do we earfr misrepresentation or
abuse or Tsecntion in a conflict
like this? Let us forget ourselves

Oh, is it not strange that with the

with this grand march of the church

What have wesufTered in comparison
with those who expired with suffoca
tion, or were burned, or were chopped
to pieces for the truth's sake? We talk
of the persecution of olden times. There
is just as much persecution going on
now in various ways. In 184'J, in Mada
gascar, eighteen men were put to death
for Christ's sake. They were to be
hurled over the rocks and before they
were hurled over the rocks, in order
to make their death the more dread
ful in anticipation, they were put in
baskets and swung to and fro over the
precipice that they might see how
many hundred feet they would have to
be dashed down, and while they were
swinging in tlie.se bas'ects over the
rocks they sang:
Jr.Mis lover of my oiil.

Then they were dashed down to
death. O, how much others have en
dured for Christ, and how little we en
dure for Christ. We want to ride to
Heaven in a Pullman sleeping ear, our
feet on soft plush, the bed made up
early so we can sleep all the way, the
black porter of death to wake us up
only in time to enter the ('olden City.

There are in the United States to-day

:i mighty work for (Kid. They took off
more of the heads of Philistine iniquity
than you could count from noon te sun
down. You put that old minister of
the giTspel now into a prayer meeting,
or occasional pulpit, or a sick rooui
where there is some one to be comfort
ed, and it is the same old ring to his
voice and the same old story of pardon
and peace and Christ and Heaven. His
hand has so long clutched. Hie sword in

"II is hand clave unto the sword."
O, if there ever was anyone who had
a right to retire from the conflict it was
old Joshua. Soldiers come back from
battle and have tho names of the bat
tles on their flags, showing where they
distinguished themselves, and it is a
very appropriate inscription. Look at
the flag of old Gen. Joshua. On it,
Jericho, Gibeon, Hazar. City of Ai, and
instead of the stars sprinkled an the
flag the sun and the moon which stood
still. There he is 110 vears old. He is
lying flat on his back, but he is preach
ing. His dying words are a battle
charge against idolatry, and a rallying
cry for the Lord of Hosts as he says:
"Behold this day I go the way of all
the earth, aud God hath not failed to
fulfill his promise concerning Israel."
His dying hand clave unto the sword.
There is the headless body of Faul

when he is sixty-eight years of age and
decrepit from the prison coll of the

treated, and he is waiting to die.
How does he spend his last hours?

Telling the world how badly ho feel
and describing tho rheumatism that he
got in prison, the rheumatism inflicting
his limbs, or the neuralgia piercing his
temples, or the thirst that feven his
tongue? O, no. His last words are the
battle shout for Christendom: "I am
now ready to be offered, and the timo
of my departure is at hand; I have
fought tho good fight" And so Lb
dying hand clave unto the sword.
I preach this sermon as a tonic. I
want you to hold the truth with in
eradicable grip, and I want you to
strike so hard for Clod that it will react,
and while you take the sword the
sword will take you.
You noticed that the officers of the
northern army a few 3'car.s ago assem
bled at Denver, and you noticed that the
officers of the southern army had as
sembled at Lexington. Soldiers com
ing together arc very apt to recount
their experiences and to show their
scars Hero is a soldier who pulls up
his sleeve and saj-s: "There, I was
wounded in that arm," and shows the
scar. And another soldier pulls down
his collar anil says: "There, I was
wounded in the neck." And another
"I have had no tiso of
that limb since the gunshot fracture." i
