lie told men and women that Christ is
knocking . at the doors of their hearts
and that they must bid Him enter, or He
will turn away and go. He referred to
the time-honored custom of knocking at
the portals of a home before entering.
"I have tecelved many Invitations to dine
In Omaha homes. I haven't time to ac
cept those Invitations, but I may get
around to some before I leave. But sup

Mr. Sunday said that a man who
sneers at Christ, after all He has done;
for that man, forfeits all right to man

dropped this tabernacle down hers in
Omaha to save men from hell."
He told of the breadth, height and

the wild ride of the divorcee to reach her

had read the poem. The husband read
the poem and the remarriage followed.
He also said: "If you are not willing

Sunday Preaches on the Second
Coming of Christ to This Earth
'Billy Sunday preached yesterday aft
rnoon and last night on the topic, "The
Second Coming." He said:
Text: "Then we which are alive and
remain shall be caught up together with
them In the clouds, to meet the Lord In
the air; and so shall we ever be with the
Lord. Wherefore comfort one another
with these word." 1 Thes. Iv: 1T-1.
The meeting here mentioned Is to be
the greatest meeting the Bible tells us
There have been some wonderful meet
ing, but never has there been one to
compare with this. It was a wonderful
meeting the children of Isrsel had on the
shore of the Red sea, after Pharaoh's
host had been destroyed In the angry
waters, and Miriam, the prophetess, with
her timbrel, led the reople In singing,
"Sing ye to the Lord, for Ho hath tri
umphed gloriously; the horse and hla rider
hath He thrown into tho sea." Ex. xv:
And It wag another great meeting they
had at the foot of Mount Sinai, when the
law of Ood was given to them amid
thunders and lightnings and fire and
That was a great meeting, too, on
Mount Carmcl, when KlUah. the sturdy
Tlahblte, defied the prophets of Baal;
and that was a great meeting where
David danced before the ark of Ood
as It waa borne into Jerusalem.
It was a great meeting when Solomon
dedicated the temple, and the glory of
the Lord came upon the people, and
those wero great meetings that were
held on the banks of the Jordan, when
Jerusalem and all Judea went out to hear
the man who dressed In camel's hair
and wore a linen glrdlo, and lived on
locusts and wild honey.
It was a wonderful meeting when Jesus
preached the Sermon on the Mount, and
another when He fed the multitude with
five loaves and two fishes. And that
was a great meeting on the day of Pen
tecost, when the Spirit came like a
rushing mighty wind, and under Peter's
preaching about 8.000 were converted.
All these were great meetings, and any
number ef others have been held, both
In former times and In our own day.
But no meeting has ever been held
anywhere or In any time that could be
gin to compare In Importance with the !
greatest of, all meetings that Is to be
held In the air, when our Lord comes
to make up Hla jewels.
All History Prepares for Meeting;.
Tr.at meeting in the one for which ail
others have been preparing the way. It
will be the crowning meeting of all his
tory. The purpose of ail that lias been
done in this world up to the present time
has been to prepare for that great meet
ing In the air.
From Adam, mankind has been march
ing, step by step, up a grand stairway
leading direct to that meeting In the air.
The call of Abraham was one step toward
It, and Jacob ana 'his twelve sons were
another; the conquest of Canaan under
Jonhua another, and so on with every
event in sacred history
It was for this Jesus suffered on the
cross to make atonement for sin. It was
for this He arose from the dead and
ascended into heaven, where He took Hla
place at the right hand of the Father.
It was for this the Holy Spirit came at
Pentecost, and It was for tills that
churches have been organized and mis
sionaries sent to the ends of the earth.
These things have all been done to pre
pare the way, and lead up to the meeting
which Is so graphically described In the
It wast for tMs meeting Ood made His
plane before He laid the foundations of
the earth, and It was for this meeting He
was thinking before the morning stars
We are not-told when Jesus will come,
but we are told that His coming is sore,
and we are charged to watch for It.
Anybody who says that he knows when
Jesus Is coming la a liar. When they
say they know when He is coming they
Only Jesus and the Father know whon
the Savior Is coming again.
Yet the church today ahows as little
concern about His coming again as His
disciples did about His going away. All
this Is fully In accord with Peter. "There

walking after their own lusts, saying,
Where is the premise of I he coming, for

Jestifl not only foretold His going away,
but charged His followers to expect His
return, and be ready for it: "Watch,
therefore, for ye know not what hour
sa-iarv , wa m nt ssvwt SS J W

diarrhea Shy of Seeond Coming.
Every time we lift the communion cup
to our lips we "do show forth the Lord's
death till He come." There is no proph
ecy needed to be fulfilled before Christ
conies. Jesus said: "The gospel of the
klnxdom shall be preached In all the
world for a witness unto ail nations; then
shall the end come." Matt xxlv:14. ,
Before I started to preach In Omaha,
Ood knew the names of every man.
woman and child who would be saved
as a result of my preaching. If God
didn't know that. He wouldn't be God.
And God knew all about the fools who
wouldn't be saved, and He knew that all
of Omaha wouldn't be saved.
I tell you that God Is pretty wise to
who are going to hell and who are going
to heaven. The sooner you get that
through your head and don't try to side
step Jesus, the sooner tho devil will let
go the strangle hold h has upon moat
There la not a nation on the face cf
the earth that haa not had the gospel
preached within its bounds.
The second coming of Christ is the em
phatic doctrine of the New Testament.
It is mentioned and referred to more
than K0 times, and yet the majority of
church members never heard a sermon
on the subject; that is the reaaon they
think so little of looking into the matter
The . church makes much of baptism,
but In all of Paul's e pintles baptism is
only mentioned or referred to thirteen
times, while the return of the Lord is
mentioned fifty times. This certainly
shows which he considered tbe most im
portant. Who would care to travel en a train
where the engineer would never read hla
rdersT Who would ride on a ship where
the captain never looked at the compass?
You may call it rubbish, but the disciples
called it the "blessed hope."
"Why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do
not the thlnts I say?" If Jesus had
said: "I will not return for Z.oou years,"
nobody would have begun to look for
Him before the time was near, but He

It Is not enough to say: "Oh, I'm a

We are not all rlht unless w ohey I
the command to watch, for It la cer
tainly as much of a command to look
for the coming of the Lord as It Is to
keep the Sabbath holy. Nothing elue
will do so much to keep us right where
we should be in our religious experience. I
Knowing that the bank examiner may

I suppose there would be a mighty i
scramble to get right with God If you
all found out that Jesus was going to re-

This old world Is going to wake up
some morning and find that all good men
and women have beaten It. and she'll rub
her eyes when she finds iut that the
Lord has been here on the lob and takon
His own with Him.
Every time I preach and every time
you do personal work, I fsel that we are
helping to bring about the seuonl corr lng
of the Lord, and It sets my rami on fire
when I think that the lut man or woman
need only be saved before this campaign
is over in order that the Lord may come.
That is my Incentive to do tue -ork I

finish here the church will be purified
as a bride, ready to meet Jesus, the
bridegroom, in the air.
Can't Make Saints.
Loot at the reign of wickedness in our
great cities In both high life and low.
No college has ever yet made a saint or
ever will. Education may Improve con
ditions, bill It can never nnange or cleanse
Look at the lukewarmnosa and indiffer

see what many of them are compelled to

There can be no ml'lennl'jm until Jesus

ing Is more certain than that tin glory
of Ood shall cover the carti but It will
be after Jesus comes.
Many have an Idea the world will
grow better and better until the coming
of the millennium, and everybody will be
converted, and you hear that stuff
preached but the Bible does not teach
any such trash.
On the day before the flood there were
no doubt many people who were sincere
In thinking that the world waa growing
better, and yet it was so hopelessly
wicked that God had to destroy it.
On the day before the crucifixion there
were man in Jerusalem who undoubtedly
agreed with each other that the world
was growing better.
likewise also as it was In the days
of Lot, they did eat, they drank, they
bought, they sold, they planted, they
bullded. But the same day that Lot
went out of Sodom It rained fire and
brimstone from heaven and destroyed
Most Go to Bible for Word of Hod.
Many think and preach that the millen
nium will be brought about by the in
crease of knowledge, culture, great dis
coveries, such ss the gasoline engine,
automobile, electricity, radium, liquified
air, wireless telegraphy, airships, etc
These have nothing to do with bring
ing the millennium. It la the personal
reign of Christ that brings the millen
nium. Those who have been the greatest
blessing to the world were filled with
this hope and preached It.
Big men have been mistaken about
vital things Just about as often as little
ones. The safest pilot Is not the man
who knows the channel best.
It is high time for Christians to In
terpret unfulfilled prophecies by the light
of prophecies already fulfilled.
The curses of the Jews were brought
to pasa literally; so also will be the
The scattering was literal; so also will
be the gathering.
The pulling down of Zlon waa literal;
so also must be the building up.
The rejection of Israel waa literal; and
so also must be the restoration.
The first coming of Christ was literal,
visible and personal, and what right has
anybody to conclude that His second
coming will be altogether spiritual? If
His first advent waa a real body, why
not the same with Ills second coming?
What right nave we to aay that the
words Judah, Zlon, Israel and Jeru
salem ever mean anything but literal
Judah, Zlon, Israel and Jerusalem?
Some one has. called attention to the
fact that there are only two or three
places In the whole New Ttettament
where such names are used in what may
be called a spiritual or figurative way.
While face to face with them, Jesus
taught Hla disciples to be In constant
expectation of tils early return, and they
so understood Him and lived accordingly.
They preached the doctrine and taught It
in their epistles, everyone of them.
Bvery time we do personal work or try
to get anybody saved, we may be doing
something that will bring the coming
of the Lord.
Won't Know When It Cornea.
There remains no prophecy to be ful
filled. There is not a nation where the
gospel has not been preached. So Christ
must be waiting for the completion of
the body of believers.
When the rupture comes it will come
In the twinkle ef an eye. Those who
have died In ths Lord wilt be resurrected,
and they, with the believers who are
alive, will be caught up to meet the
Lord In the air.
The remainder of the world will not
know that He haa been here, and they
will not know what has become of the
The notion that people have about the
second coming of Christ is that when He
comes the Judgment day will also come,
and that the world will come to an end.
This Idea Is unscrlptural and shows how
little the Bible haa been searched to find
and make known the real truth by those
who are leaders and teachers In the

temple and restoring the Jewish worship.
Also during the tribulation the antl
Christ will come, most likely In the per
son of some greet king. It Is supposed
that he will be a personal Inrariiatlon of
the devil, Just as Jesus was an Incarna
tion of Ood.
He will go to Jerusalem, and there ilf
treat signs and wonders, by which he
will so delude the chosen people that thoy
will accept him as their Morlah, and pny
him divine honors In the temple. It will
be during this that Jesus will return and

ing. "And then shall the wicked be revealed,
whom the Lord shall consume with the
spirit of Hla mouth, and shall destroy
with the brightness of Hla coming; even

at the time of the rapture, but only re
veals Himself to the menibeis of Ills
body. At tho time of His resurrection tie
was only seen by those who believed on
Him. Hlate and the hlsh priest, nn.l
those who crucified Him. ill.! not know
thnt He was risen. So it will be at fie
time of the rapture. The world will not
I know that lie lias been here, sad w'll
! have no knowicdKC of Illm until He
comes with the members of Ills body, at
the close of the tiibulstlon.
What an awful thing, then, to hove
the glorious privilege of living In this
dispensation, with all thst It mesns, and
miss getting into the body of Christ by
refusing lo become a Christian.
Do not think It for a moment, Do T.i
purpose can no more be kept back a min
ute than the heavenly bodies csn be de
layed a minute. In redemption Ood is
working by the clock as surely as In
creation, and Ills chariot or salvation Is
not marked late a slngls minute.
