LETTER FROM REV. H. A.
LETTER FROM REV. H. A. PALLISTER.
To the Brethren and Sisters of
the Church of Christ, worshiping
the Church of Christ, worshiping at McArthur, Vinton
County, Ohio
Dkarlt CeLovid ur thk Lord
Eight months hare come and
gone since in ieHrt we ieps
rated. :Tben were broken the
links of friendship's chain
which had been fashioned and
welded during' almost a three
ear's miuisiry in yotir midst.
Doubtless you feel that many
letters 'oughto baV4 passed
between us and the long flight
cf days and weeks '.li&ich, has
intervened. ' 1Suoh has been ray
heart's ' resolve and, purpose.
Never, for. a moment has this
duty, this sacred duty, been for
roi ten. And though pressing,
urgent claims. upon, my time
have thus far prevented,yet my
lervent prayers in your behalt
have not ceased to ascend to
ihe tlirone of the heavenly
grace.' Coming to a strange
town and a new congregation
my energies have been taxed
to their utmost.. Of burdens
heavy and anxieties perplexing
we have had our share. You
loo. have had your loiUome ex
perience. But, think God,
here and there unutterable joys
have been granted to cheer and
bless us. And to-night finds
me sitting by the lamp, en
deavoring) in (be stillness, to
put a iew thoughts together
i hat may serve to comfort and
edify the little faithful flock
''whose works of patience and
labors of love" will ever live in
the recollen ion oi me and
mine. The Psalmist verv beau
tilully has expressed that
which I also would implore:
May the words ot my mouth
mid the meditation of my heart
lie acceptable in thy sight 0
Lord, my sfi'ffgtrr'iinljpiy IU'
deemer. And may' God give
vou the hearing ear and the
understanding heart to profit
by what shall be written.
Having been lor some time
deeply interested in the book
ol Hebrew it has seemed fit
and appropriate to endeavor in
this communication. to lay bare
belore you some of the tress
ures which have been brought
to the surface by faithlul din
King, and should your enjoy
ment in handling Ihe few nug
gets gotten be equal to the
pleanuro derived from my own
patient search, this epistle will
not have been penned in vain
Some may call it a sermon, and
others boldly presume, clang.
ing iho figure, rlhat I am only
sending a few grains of wheal
which have been cracked and
ground and masticated her.
But such is not the cane. What
ever you listen to now most
assuredly springs lresh and
flows out of a heart heating in
holiest sympathy with the band
of laithlul ones in Christ Jesus,
meeting in McArthur, a heart
always uplifted by your tri
umphs, oast down by your dd
leats. Time, however, presses,
and these remarks introductory
must close.
'-Therefore we oujrtit to give the
more earnest heed to the tilings wLIcli
we Imve beard, lest at any time we
sl.oiiltl let tlit in slip. Korif the word
spoken by angels was' stead last, and
every transgression and dirobedlence
received gjuat recompense of reward ;
how shall we escape If we neglect so
gn at salvation ; which at the Unit bc
Can to be epokeu by the Lord, and
was confirmed unto us by them that
heard him; God also bearing them
witneiw, both with ttxns and wonders,
and with divers miracle, and jriftt of
the Holy Spirit, according to bU own
will Btbrexee 11 chap. 4 w.
The central thought in these
verses is the great salvation,
ihe salvation through Jesus
Christ our Lord. And Indeed,
does not this form the web and
wool of the whole fabric ol
God's word!; It js the graud
thought therein expressed
around, hich all other thought s
gather. Blot out salvation from
the Bible - and it would-be Jika
bloiuig out fjoai, ii ivBftTeai
the natural sun; every star that
burns in the broad expanse of
revelation would be extin
guished; every moon Ibat
shines with her soft silvery
light would wan and wane;
darkness which might be felt
would reign, for from side to
side of the word ol God stretch
es salvation. . It wraps and
binda together Ihe Pentateuch
and the Apopalypse, To the
music of redemption Ihe angels
Strung their harps and down
that golden thread came the
blessed promise of a deliverer
which . cheered the hearts cf
om bist pareaM when in shame
nd guilt they passed1 through
ihe gates of Eden. Upon that
thread swung the picture of fu
ture glory which inspired the
faith of Abraham when in his
old age God declared 4ie
should have a son in whose
seed all the families ol the earth
should be blesed;' and over
and along this line of hpht
were hung the, splendid syra
bols pertaining to the worship
of the Jews, the magnificent
visions of the prophets, the
exultant songs of the bards and
poets. Verily,it was to hold this
pregnant thought, to keep it
bright and beautiful, Hint Uod
singled out the Israelites and
made them a peculiar people
among the nations ol the earth
The apostle was writing to
Jews and he says: "I. the word
spoken by angels was Hteadfast
and every transgression and
disobedience received a just
recompense of reward, how
shall we escape if we neglect so
great salvation which at the
first began to be spokea by the
Lord, and was confirmed unto
us by them that heard him?"
In this language there is evi
dent allusion lo ihe law of Mo
ses, '-which wag ordaiued eiv.
eu by angels in the hand' of a
mediator." And therefore very
naturally their mijidd would re
vert back to the . salvation
which preceded the publication
of that law when their fore
fathers were delivered and
brought forth from the' slavery
of the ltiaraohs. Indeed on
of the purposes of the writer
seems to be to awaken the e
meinbrance of that tact in the
minds of his reader, that he
might the more deeply impress
upon their hearts the truth o'
that mightier deliverancen'hich
God had wrought out by his be
loved Bon. That was a salva
tion, a great salvation. But
this is o great. Jehovah then
looked down from his throne
with intensesi interest. lie
saw the loilinglsraelites as they
groaned beneath oppression's
weight. His great heart was
moved in tenderest sympathy.
So that Ironi out of the blazing
bush al Uoreb he commission
ed MoRes-to be their savior
to stand belore Ihe prouJ mon
arch who wielded the destinies
ol Eypt and demand the liber
ation of bis people. Subse
quently by his own right hand
and stretched oit arm, be led
them away from their ignoble
servitude with a song of tri
umph on their lip and the
promised land in vision before
their eyes. That was a salva
tion worthy of being enshrined
in their deepet and holiest
memories and handed down to
the generations yet to come
through the succeeding years
of time. After all, however,
that deliverance -was but a
temporal deliverance. It show
ed the interest of God in the
welfare of but one nation. It
was the redemption merely ol
the body from human shackles.
It was only the bringing of a
people into a laud whose riches
were to fade away at the
breath of lin. But in Christ
Jesus the grander, widei, deep
er, sympathy ol God is made
manifest.'' His ears 'listen not
to1 the groan's or one '' people,
bat to the iihs and aobi of sin-
cursed humanity. His beat
ing,' mighty heart is revealed
yearning, not over one nation,
but over every nation, 'a Sa
vior is made known, not to lead
out from bondage the hundreds
of thousands of Jews alone
but the myriads upon myriads
Of all tribes and kindred and
tongues. This deliverance is
not the deliverance ol the body
but of both soul and body.
This salvation is not temporal
but eternal, and the glories i
the land to which the saved are
traveling will glow in undying
splend jr as long as the throne
ol the Lligest shall endure. ll
fruits are impemhable.itB fields
lorever green, its blessed sun
light knows no shadow. Death'
bony hand never enters, tears
flow not, for uo well is' there
Irom which they might' te
drawn. Sin is banished. In
comparison then wiih the sal
vation under Moses, the salva
tion under Christ -is great
even to great. .
God had not, however, spo
ken in these last days To men
by angels or by prophet p. He
had not tent them One as a
leade'r who should "iremble"
when he was commissioned, or
who should "speak unadvised
iy with his lips," and perhaps
perish this side of the glnr.v
land of promise. No; but lie
had spoken unto I hem by Iiis
own dear Son, the darling" oi
his bosom. He was the One
"mighty to save and strong to
deliver" whom God had author
ized to reveal his will and save
a guilty wnrlJ. The prophets
were but human the servant
in whom and by whom ancient
ly God's piipnses, in parts and
broken fragments, had been
made known. Ang?ls txalted
as they stood in the presence
chiimber of Jehovah were but
messengers, like the uncoil,
scious wind and the unthink
ing liehtning, whose special
office was to attend upon those
who should he the heirs of sal
vation. But the Son by whom
now God had spoken was Lord
of all, God having made him
heir of all things. H0 it was

But who were the persona '
