The manner of" His resurrection was
Godlike. No human mind wOuld ever
have imagined such, a scene. Had

and thunderings and a great com
motion in the Heavens. A sound like '
that of the last trump would have '
proclaimed to all the terrified inhabit
ants of Jerusalem that He was risen.
But see how far different it was.
An angel rolled away the stone
from the mouth of the sepulchre as
quietly as the opening of the buds in
May, and the women who were early
there found no disorder in the grave,
"but the linen clothes with which they
had tenderly robed His body were
neatly folded and tidily placed. And

and to His best friends, but not a
single one of His enemies got to see
Him. I know that the story of the
resurrection is true, because none but ,
God would have had things happen in
the order they did and in the way in
which they occurred. Hod the story
been false Jesus would have been ,
made to go to Pilate and the high
priest, and to the others who had a ,
part in His death, to prove that He ,
was risen. J
He is a wonderful Savior, too, be

life. As quick as you can come He
receives, and as quickly as you could
receive a present you have been
wanting for years you can 'have sal
vation. "Him that cometh to Me I"
wfll in no wise cast out." To as many
as received Him, to them He gave
powers to become the sons of God. '
No need for taking very much time
about that. In a meeting Thomas'
Harrison was holding a man rose
with his watch in his hand and said: .
"Mr. Harrison, can I be saved in ten
minutes? I must leave her to take
my train out tfcen." "Yes," replied -Harrison,
