"MANY ARE CA=LET BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN."
Matthew 22:1-14.-September 11.
ANY of us 'iave not in the past sufficiently discerned that none of the
lessons of the Great Teacher were given in literal language-that
they were all symbolical; as we read, "Without a parable spake he
not unto them."-Matt. 13:34.
In today's Study we have another beautiful parabolic lesson respecting the
Kipnuio3-Weanight inquire why the Bible is so full of these lessons concern
inlg the Kingdom/9? Is it not because the Kingdom of God is the only hope of
the world? Ard we not learning this more and more? Faith in the coming
Kingdom of Gofd under the whole heavens began to grow dim within less than
*wo centuries rafter the death of the Apostles. Instead of longing, hoping, to
become the Brtde of Christ, to be associated with him in his glorious Kingdom
!or the overthiow of Sin and Satan and Death, and for the uplifting of man
kind during a reign of a thousand years, a new faith and a new hope came In,
-contrary to the Scriptures. This unscriptural hope instructed Christians that
'they should efpect an earthly Kingdoin of their own establishment, in which
-the popes would reign as representatives of Jesus, and the cardinals and bishops
-ss representlitives of the apostles and the "little flock," to whom the Kingdom
Is promise@ Thenceforth the work of the Church, to "build one another up In
the most hbly faith," gave place to the unscriptural course of neglecting the
Church and laboring for the world, under the unwarranted assumption that it
is the 'dut'y of the Church to convert the world. As to how much injury has 3

As Messiah is to be- the Great King of earth during the period of hist

tasBride class mnany members. The Kingdom is the-great prize which thet
Fh is to~ bestow upon his Son-to be shared by the Church, the Bride of
Christ.N'e~ parable of today's Study outlines the call of this Bride class or
Kingdom class from Jesus' day down to the completion and glorification of thistl
company. Nowhere is Jesus represented as calling his own Bride. This -is
foreshown in Abraham, who typified the Father, and Isaac, who typified Jesus:
and Abraham's servant, sent to call Rebecca to be the Bride of Isaac, typifiedh
the holy Spirit, whose work during this Gospel Age is bringing to Christ the
Bride class-"the very elect."
So this parable shows that the King sent forth the call to the Marriage
The Jewish people, the children of Abraham. according to the flesh, had been
invited to this high honor from the time of the giving of the Law Covenant at
Sinai. Century after century they waited for the announcement to be made io
them that the nuptial feast was ready. Finally, when Jesus came, the an

politics and religious schemes of their own concocting. They manifested no
interest in the announcement and even beat some of the servants, the Apostier
and others, who sought to help them. and to draw their attention to the GreatC
Feast, which was their special privilege.
The Almighty was wroth and sent the Roman Armies and "destroyed those
murderers and burned up their City." Jerusalem. in A. D. 70. Then the King
said to hIs servants. The wedding must take place even though those who a
were bidden are not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways and as many
,. as ye find bring to the marriage feast- As the city represented the Jewish I~
nation. so the highways represented the world in general-the Gentiles-to
whom the message of the Kingdom was sent after fleshly Israel had first
enjoyed the offer and but partially improved it. Another staterment of the
-parable shows three different classes:
(1) The Jewish rulers who rejected him.
(2) Those called from among the streets and lanes of their city and gathered
Nto the spirit plane by Jesus and the Apostles.
-(3) Then the report was given. "We have done as thou hast commanded5
and yet there Is room." Then the message ivent forth to go everywhere among
the Gentiles and urge them to come in. until the house should be filled-until
the elect number for whom the feast was provided would be found. Our Study
states that the wedding was. furnished with guests-good and bad. In other
words; the offer of a share with Christ in his Kingdom has attracted some
naturally very fallen, as well as some better favored by nature. But the ar
rangements of the Great King are such that the "wedding garment" covers all
the blemishes of the most imperfect as well as those of the least imperfect.
The latter part of our Study shows a discrimination and judgment ulti
mately to take place amongst those invited to the wedding and accepted. As
none were permitted to enter in without a wedding garment-without an
acknowledgment of the merit of Christ's sacrifice--so none will be permitted to
remain and participate in the wedding festival except those who maintain their
standing of confidence in Christ. Any who take off the "wedding garment"
will be sure to be expelled from the privileges enjoyed and will go out from
the light and blessings afforded to this favored class, into the "outer darkness"
of the world and of nominal Christianity, in which shortly there will be a
great time of trouble. symbolically represented by the "weeping and gnasl
Are we not even now in the time of this inspection of the guests? And are
not all Christian people who cast away their confidence in the sacrifice of
Christ and who accept Evolutionary theories and Higher Criticism taking off
"the wedding garment." and will they not all eventually find themselves in
outer darkness, in confusion. iri bewilderment? An:d will they not be sadly dis
tressed in the great time of troub' which the Scriptures declare to be near?
