the Klory of (iod? There is only on.!
alternative. He must prove Himself
ihe KIiik of the spiritual world.
There would be no advantage In
forming a new kingdom on eartii if it
was to be uo Improvement over those
already in existence. ChaiiKe of nil
eu would be of no value If tho sub
join were not also bunged. To luere
y teach men without affecting thi lr
hearts Is to ndd to their ubllity to sin.
KtillKhtenment without righteousness
is a curse. What Is needed Is a pari
liratlon of the stream of life at tho
fountain head, no that the current
viil flow pure and sweet.
He must be able to no ouipUsh
practically a new creation. We have
?; n that He Is King of the phyni--.il
v iii ld.- He can reconstruct the body.
V.'e have seen that He Is Klnj; of the
material world, He can control tie
laws of nature. Is He also the Kin;
of the spiritual world - has the Son
uf Man power on earth to forgive pin'.'
The answer Is not far, to seek. Mi
