THE DIVINE MIRROR.
From the Far East Dr. Talmsae Sends a
Message of Grr ce.
BROOKLYN, Oct. 2S.-Rev. Dr, Tal
mage, who has left Tndia and is now on
his homeward joumrney, has selected as
the subjeat of his sermon today through
the press "The Looking Glass," his
text being Exodus xxxviii, 8, "And he
made the laver of brass, and the foot of
it was brass, of the looking glassss of
the wEmen assembling."
We often hear about the gcspel in
John, and the gospel in Luke, and the
gospel in Matthew, out there is jast as
surely a gospel of Moses, and a gospel
of Jeremiah, and a gospel of David. In
other words, Christ is as certainly to be
found in the Old Testament as in the
When the Israelites were marching
through the wilderness they carried
their church with them. They catled it
the tabernacle. It was a pitched tent,
very costly,very beautitul. The frame
work was.made of 48 boards of acacie
wood set in sockets of silver. The
curtains of the place were purple and
scarlet and blue and fine linen and were
hung with most artistic loops. The
candlestick of that tabernacle had shaft
and branch and bowl of solid gold, and
the figures of cherubim that stood there
had wings of gold, and there were lamps
of gold, and snuffers of gold, and tongs
of gold, and rings of gold, so that skep
ticism has sometimes asked, Where did
all that precious material come from?
t is not my place to furnish the pre
cious stones. It is only to tell that
they were there.
I wish now more especially to seak
of the laver that was built in the midst
of that ancient taberbacle. It was a
great basin from which the priests wasn
ed their hands and feet. The water
came down from the basin in spouts and
passed away after the cleansing. This
laver, or basin, was made out of the look
ing glasses of the women who frequent
ed the tabernacle, and who had made
these their contribution to the fm niture.
These lookng glasses were not made of
glass, but they were brazen. The brass
was of a very superior quality and pol1
ished until it reflected easily the
features of those who locked mnto it.
so that the layer spokea of in my text
did double work-it not only furnished
the water in 'which the priests washed
themselves, but it also, on its shining,
polished surface, pointed cut the spots
of pollution on the face which needed
ablution. Now my Christian friends,
s everything in that ancient tabernacle
- was suggestive cf religious truth, and
-for the most part positively symbolical
of truth, I shall take that laverf-look
ing glasses spoken of in thy.text as all
suggestiye of the goper,' which first
go sins-s in a mirror and
ien washes e~m away ny divine ablu
Oh. happy day, happy day,
When Jesus washed my sins away!
I have to say that this is.- the only
iooking glass in which a man can see
himself as he is. There are some m'ir
rors that fiatter the features and make
you look better than you are. Then
there are other mirrors that distort your
featues and make you look worse than
you are, but I want to tell you that this
looking glass of the gospel shows a man
just as he is. When the priests entered
thie ancient tabernacle, ons glaece at the
burnished side of this layer showed themn
their need of cleansing, so this gospel
shows the soul its need of divine wash
ing. "All have sinned and come short
of the glory of God." That is one
showing. "All we, like sheep, have
gone astray." That is another show
ing. "From the crown of the head to
the sole of the foot there is no health in
us" That is another showing. The
world calls these defects, imperfections,
or eccentricities, or errati.c behavlor, or
"wild oats," or "high living," but the
gospel calls them sin, transgression,
filth-the abominable thamg that God
hates. It was just one glanca at the
mirror that made Paul cry out, "Oh,
wretched man that I am, who shall de
hiver me from the body of this death?"
and that made David cry out, "Purge
me-with hyssop, and I shall be clean,"
.and that made Martin Luther cry out,
."Oh, my sins, my sins!" I am not
talking about bad habits. Yon and I
do not need any Bible to tell us that
bad habits are wrong; that blasphemy
and evil speaking are wrong, but I am
ting of a sinful nature, the source of
all bad thoughts as well as of all bad
actions. The Apostle Paul calls their
roll in the first chapter of Romans.
They are a regiment of death et camping
around every heart, holding it in a ty
ranny from which nothing but the grace
of God can deliver it.
Here, for instance, is ingratitude.
Who has not been guilty of that sin? If
a man hand us a glass of water, we say,
"'Thank you," but for the1l0,000mercies
that we are every day receiving from
the hand of God how little expression of
gratitude-for thirst slaked, for hunger
fed, for shelter and sunshine and sound
sleep and clothes to wear, how little
thanks! I suppose there are men 50
years of age who have never yet been
down on their knees in thanksgiving to
God for his goodness. Be~sides that
ingratitude of our hearts there is pride
who has not felt it?-pride that will not
submit to God, that wants its own way,
a nature that prefers wrong sometimes
instead of right, that prefers to wallow
instead of rise up. I do not care what
you call that. I am not going to quar
rel with any theologian or any man who
makes any pretensions to theology. I
do not care 'whether you call it "total
depravity" or something else, I simply
make the announcement of God's word,
affirmed and confirmed by the experience
of hundreds of Uhristiarn people, the
imagination of the heart of mtan is evil
from youth. "There is none th'at doeth
good-no, not one." We hav3 a bad
nature. We were born with .t. We
got it from cur parents. They got it
from their parents. Our thountas are
wrong, our action is wrong, cur whole
life is obnoxious to Gcd before cenver
sion, and after conversion not one good
thing in us but that which the grace of
God has planted and fostered. "Weli,"
you say, "I can't believe that to be so."

5nd that this laver of looking glasses
was filed with fresh water every morn
ing, and the priest oo sooner looked on
!ts burbished side and sav his need of
ceansing than he washed and was c'ean
gloricus type of the gospel cf m7 Lord
Jesus. that first shows a mn~m his sin
and then washee it a"l awa3!
I want you to notice that this laver
in which the priest washed, tbc laver o!
oking glasses, was filled with fresh
water every morning. The servants of
the tabernacle brought the water in
buckets and poured into this layer. So
it is with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It
has a fresh salvation every day. It is not
a stagnant pool filled with accumpalated
corruptions. It is living- water,
which is brought from the eter
nai rock to wash away the sins of yes
terday, of one moment ago. Oh,"
says some one I was a Chretian 20 years
ago." That coes not mean anything to
me. Wh'at are you nov,? We are not
talking, my brother, about pardon ten
years ago, but about pardon now, a fresh
salvation. Suppose a time of war should
come, and I could show the government
that I had been loyal to it 12 years ago,
would that execuse me from taking an
oath of allegiance now? Suppose you
ask me about my physical health, and
I should say I was well 15 years ago,
that does not say how I am now. The
gospel of Jesus Christ comes and de.
mands present allegiance, present fealty,
present moral health, and yet how
many Christians there are seeking to
live entirely in past'experience, who
seem to have no experience or present
mercy and pardon!
When I was on the sea, and there
came up a great storm, and oflicers and
crew and passengers all thought we must
go down, I began to thiok of my life in
surance and whether if I were taken
away my family would be cared for, and
then I thought. Is the premium paid up:
and I said, "Yes," Then I felt com
ortable. Yet there are men who in re
ligious matters are looking back to past
insurance. They have let it run out,
and they have nothing for the present,
no hope nor pardon, faling back on the
id insurance policy of 10, 20, 30 years
aso. If 1 waguald.Cit ha - .en
fees -t6ward me. do I go to the drawer
find some old vellow letters written to
me 10 or 12 years ago?
No; I go to the letter that was stampec
the daty before yesterday in the postof
fle, and I find how he feels toward me.
It is not inregard to old comimunications
we had with Jesus .Christ. It is com.
munications we have now. Are we noi
in sympathy with him this morning, and
is he not in symeathy with us? Do noi
spend so much of your time in huntini
in the wardrobe for the old, wornou!
shoes of Christian profession. Come thi:
morning and take the glittering robe 01
Chrit's righteousness f~om the Saviour'
hand. You say you were plunged in the
fountan of the Sayiour's mercy a quar
ter of a century ago. That is notunn
to me. I tell you to wash now mn this
laer of looking glasses and have your
soul made clean.
A religion that will not take a mar
through an autumn election will not be
worth anything to himmi June, July and
August. They say he is a useful sort ofa
man, but he overreaches in a bargain. I
deny the stat'ement. If he is a Christiat
anywhere, he wilh be in his business. It
is very easy to be good mn the prayet
meeting, with eurroundings kindly and
blesse'1, but not so easy to he a Chris
tian behmnd the counter, when by one
skilliul twitch of the goods yon can hide
a flaw in tihe ailk so that the customer
cannot see it. It is very easy to be a
Christian with a psalmook in your
hand and a Bible in your lap, but not so
easy when you can go into a shop and
falsely tell the merchant you cant get
those gootds at a cheaper rate in another
store, so that he will sell them to yout
cheaper than he can afford to sell them,
The fact is the religion of Christ is al)
pervasive, If you rent a house, you
expect full possession of it. You say:
"Where are the keys of those roomsa? II
I pay for this whole house, I want pos
session of those rooms." And the
race of God when it comes to a sonl
takes full possession of a man or goes
away and takes no possession. It wil:
ransack every room in the heart, every
room in th~e life, from ceilar to attic,
touching the very extremities of his na
ture. The priests washed hands and
I remark, further, that this layer of
looking glasses spoken of in the text
was a very laige layer. I always
thought, from the fact that so many
washed there, and also from the fact
that Solomon afterward, when he copied
that laver in the temple, built it ona
very laige scale, that it was large, n
so suggestive of the gosole of Jesus
Christ and salvation by him-vast in
its provision. The whole world may
come and wash in this layer and be
When our civil war had passed, the
government of the United States made
proclamation of pardon to the commor
soldiery in the Confederate army, but
not to the cheif soldiers. The gospel of
Christ does not act in that way. It says
pardon for all, but especially fer the chief
of sinners. I do not now think of a sin

If there be sins only faintly hued, just a
little tinged, so faintly colored that you
can badly see them, there is no special
paron promised in the Bible for those
sins, but if they be glaring, red, like
crimson, then they shall be as snow.
Now, my brotner, I do ncot state this to
put a premium upon great iniqu~ty. I
merely say this to enc urage thnat mn,

In Solomon's temple there were ten
lavers aad one mohen sea-this great
reservoir in the midst of the temple
fIlled with water-these lavers and thi3
tuolen sea adorned with figures of palm

f was reading the other day of Ahx in
dr tho Great, who, when he was very .
thirsty and standin at the head of hts -
army, had brought to him a cup of water
Ho loaked off upon bis host a.d sate: 1
cinnot drink this. M men are all thirs - e:
t," and he dashed it to the ground. S
Biessed be God, there in enough waier y
for all the host-enough for captains and a
host! "Whosoever will may come and
take of the water of life freely," a laver
broad as the earth, high as the heavens
and deep as hell.
But I notice also, in regard to this
laver of looking glasses spoken of in the s:
texl, that the washing in It was impera- f
tive and not optional. When the priests
c me into the tabernacle (you will find J
this in the thirtieth chspter of 1rodus), n
God tells them that they must wash in
that !area or die. Tae priest might have
said "Can't I wash elsewhere? I washed
in he laver at home. and now you want
m-. to wash here." God say : "No s
matter whether or not you have washed J
befre. Wash in this laver or die." i
"But," says the priest, "there is water I
just as clean as this. Why woa't tuat lt
d?" "Wash here," says God, "or die." si
So it is with the gospel of Christ. It is
imperative. There is only this alterna- b
tive-keep cur sins and perish, or wash b
them away and live. But, says some b
one,"Why couldnot Godhave made b
more ways to heaven than one?" I do
not know, but he couid have made haif t
a dezen. I kno)w he made but one.
You say, "Why not have a long line
of boats running from here to heaven?"
I cannot say, but simply know that t
there is only one boat. You say, "Are e
there not trees as luxuriant as that on f
Calvary, more luxuriant, for that had r
neither buds nor blossoms; It was strip- t
ped and barked?" Yes, yes, there have
oeen taller trees than that and more s
luxurant, but the only path to heaven is t
under that one tree. Instead of quarrel. E
ing because there are not more ways, let 1
us be thankful to God there Is one-one
name given unto men whereby we can
be saved, one laver in which all the
world may wash. So you see what a
radiant gospel this is I preach, I do not a
know how a man can stand stolidly and t
present it, for it is such aa exhilarant c
gospel. It is not a mere whim or cap- f
rics. It is lifa or death. It is heaven
or bell. You come before your child, g
and ycu have a present In your hand. 1
You put your hands behind your back
and say: "Which nand will you take? t
In one hand there is a treasure; in the
other there is not." The child blindly
chooses. But God our Father does not
do that way with us. H e spreads cut
both hands and says: "No v, this shall
be very plim. In that han:d are par don
and peace and life and the treasures of
heav - that hand are punishmnent
sorrow ndoe. Choose, choose
for youreelves." '-Helhaeheredy and
is baptized shall be saved, bat he ~tt
believeth not shall be damned."(
Oh, my dear friends, :I which1
I could coax you to accept
this gospel. ;If you could just
take one look in this layer at looking
glasses spoken ot in the text, you would
begin now spiritual ablution. The love
of Christ-I dare not, toward the close
of my sermon, begin to tell about it.
The love ot Christ! Do not talk to me
about a mountain; it is higher thant
that. Do not talk to me about a sa; it
is deeper than tniat.
An artist in his dreams saw such a

Oil and said, "Let me paint this and die."
Oh, I have seen the glories of Christ' I
have beheld something of the beauty of
that sacrifie ocn Calvery, and I have
sometime felt I would be willing to give
anything if I might just sketch beforej
you the wonders of that sacrifice. I
s'ould like to do it whlie I live, and I
would like to do it when I die. "Let t
me paint this and die." He comes along 1
weary and worn, his face wet with tears, I
his brow crimson with blood, and he lit s
down on Calvary tor you, No, I mis
take. Nothing was as comfortable as
that. A stone on Calvary would have
made a soft pillow for the dying head of
Christ. Nothing so comiortable as that.
He does not lie down to die. He stands
up to die, his spiked bands outspread as
it to embrace a world. On, what a hard
end for those feet that had traveled alt
over Judan, on ministries of mercy! I
What a hard end for those hands that
wped away tears and bound up broken
hearts! Very hard, 0 dying Lamb of
God! And yet there are those who know1
it and who do not love thee. They say:
"What is all that to me? What if he
does weep and groan and die? 1 don't
want him." Lord Jesuu Christ, they
will not help thee down from the cross!
The soldiers will come, and they wilt1
tear thee down tram the cross and pot
their arms around thee and lower thee t
into the tomb, but they will not help.
They see nothing to move them. 0 dy. I

In agony and blood

Though not a word he spoke.
