Rev. iii. :21-Commeintary 'repared
by Itev. ). 31. Stenrnm.
[0:,yri, 1. by-. American IvnAssociation.1
In the ouliinec of last week ve saw
that chapters xxi and xxii bring before
us the new heaven and earth, so what
eVer there1 may b0 in this le5Son (On
crning our heavenly hoino, as the title
indicates, it is heaven in connection
with earth, and part of it is heaven oil
cartlh. for the "no death nor sorrow nor
crying nor pain" of xxi, 4. and the "no
more curse" of xxii, .1, must be earth
and not heaven, for these things never
were in heaven, and there would be no
sense in saying no more where there
never was any. Then in xxi, 3, God
comes down to dwell with men, but in
heaven we go to dwell with God.
As to the throne of God and the
Lamb we know that, although His
throne is in heaven, He is also -to
have a throne on earth at Jerusa
lem (Jer. iii, 17). Concerning the new
Jerusalem of which :Iapter xxi speaks
so fully, which is to come down out .of
heaven from God and in the light of
which the nations of the earth are to
walk, we read that the Lord God Al
mighty and the Lamb are the temple
of It and the glory and the light of it
The new earth of which these chap
ters tell us will be this planet .purified
by filre as the earth before the deluge
was purified by water (Il ret. iii. 5-7,
12, 13), an earth wherein dwelleth
righteousness filled with the glory of
the Lord, and His will done here as in
heaven (Num. xiv, 21; Hab. 11. 14; Matt..
vi, 9, 10); rest on every side, neither
adversary nor evil occurrent (I Kings v,
4), because le who made all things In
the beginning shall have made all
things new (xxi, 5). It is our privilege,
while we wait for this kingdom and
live to hasten it, to antedate it in our
individual experience. By nature we
are dead in sins and under the curse
because of our transgressions, but as
soon as we receive the Lord Jesus
Christ as our Saviour then we can.say,
"Christ bath redeemed me from the
curse of the law being made a curse
for me" (Gal. iii, 13).
So in our life there comes a time
when there is no more curse, and In
stead of selr btg ca the throne of
our hearts Chric is on the throne, and
we are new creatures, old things are
passed away, all things are become
new (II Cor. v, 17). The thirst for the
waters of this world ceases, and we
drink from God Himself, the Fountain
of Living Water (Jer. ii, 13; xvil, 13).
By faith we eat of the tree of life, for
both the tree and the river suggest
Christ Himself, the Bread of Life and
the Water of Life.
If Christ is enthroned In our hearts
we will worship and serve Him only;
we will desire above all things the
smile of His approval, and even our
faces will manifest that we are His,
His name written on our foreheads
(verses 3, 4). There no darkness comes,
for there shall be no night, but even
here we may walk in the light and
have continual fellowship and ever re
joice In the blood that cleanseth. We
can hardly anticipate the -reigning with
Christ according to verse 15 and Rev.
v, 9, 10, yet see Rom. v, 17, where
through abunde'.nce of grace and
righteousness we are said to reign in
life by Jesus Christ more than con
querors through Him who loved us.
By comparing verse 16 with verse 6
we have, to may mind, a very clear
proof that Jesus Is the Lord God of the
holy prophets, a truth that is abun
dantly proved elsewhere and made
manifest in all Scripture. Jesus is
God. Three times in this chapter we
have Hils "Behold, or surely I come
quickly" (verses 7, 12, 20), and the last
of these three is the very 'last word we
have ever heard from Rim. How ear
nestly we should be watching for Hmm
and our hearts ever crying, "Even so,
come, Lord Jesus!" The only right.at
titude of the soul of the believer to
ward God is "waiting for H.son from
heaven" (I Thess. 1, 10; Tit.11i, 13; Heb.
Verse 7 takes us back to and em
phasizes chapter 1, 3. Let us therefore
not simply read, but memorize and eat,
this book and thus obtain this great
blessing. This is not the first time that
John fell at the feet of his heavenly
visitor to worship (see chapter xix, 10),
but he Is again lovingly reproved, and
this time he is told that his friend from
heaven Is one of the prophets and that
in heaven they keep the sayings of this
book, and he .is again admonished to
"worship God," reminding us of our
Lord's words. "Thou shalt worship the
Lord thy God, and Him only- shalt thou
serve" (Matt. iv, 10).
In Dan. x11, 4, 9, the words were to be
closed up and sealed till the time of
the end, but here it Is just the contrary.
"Seal not, for the time is at band"
(verse 10). When the end comes peo
ple will continue as the end finds them.
unjust or filthy or righteous. I do not
know in all Scripture any authority for
believing that there may possibly be
any repentance after death for those
who have heard the gospel in this life.
Verse 12 points us to the judgment
seat of Christ and the rewards for serv
ice then to be given. Compare Rom.
xv, 10; II Cor. v. 10: I Cor. iii, 14. 1~>;
Luke xiv, 14. There are no degrees
in salvation; but, as one star differeth
from another, so in the glory. See II
John, 8, as to the desire that we have
a full reward 'and note In Rev. iv. 10.
that anr. erowns we may receive it wili

THE HUDSON RIVER.
Who Was the Real Discoverer of
This Picturesonvc Stream?
No Dutch or English man can affirm
the discovery of the Hudson river.
Verrazzano must have distanced Hud
son's archives by nearly a hundred
years. However, the Dutch and Eng
lish liaison in the matter is close. Hud
son Is appropriated by Dutch minds
and has a Holland tradition round him.
He came in a Dutch yacht called the
Half Moon in 1609. His sailors were
Hollanders and Englishmen. He rep
resented a Dutch East India company
on its way to find the much sought
for northeast passage to India. He
explored the Hudson, going as far as
the little town that bears his name,
and he himself has been transmitted
to posterity with such blended and
mixed traditions as to constitute him
well nigh a half breed in people's
The names of the river are varied.
It has been called Manhattan, the

croup, whooping courgh and all lung
and bronchial affections when the
bowels are open. Kennedy's Laxative
Honey and Tar is the original Laxa

bowels, and expels all cold from the
system. Best for coughs, colds, croup,
wbooping cough, etc. Remember the

Ideas From Nature.
Walking on the outskirts of Bolton
one autumn evening, a clever young
man became interested in watching
the seeds falling from a sycamore tree.
He observed that they acquired a ro
tary motion before reaching the
ground, and, inquiring into the cause,
he found that the two wings were
slightly turned in opposite directions,
which caured them to revolve in fall
ing. The idea of making a screw pro
peler on this principle at once occur
red to him.
Galvani, a natural philosopher of
Italy, was dissecting a dead frog one
day while a pupil was making experi
ments In electricity by his side. He
observed that the muscles of the frog,
being exposed, gave signs of motion
whenever the nerves came in contact
with the scopel. Galvani discovered
the existence of a new principle in
this phenomenon and originated the
fertile branch of physics known by
the name of galvanism.
"For sevea years," writes Geo'. W.
Holmwan, of Harper, Wash., "I had a
bitter battle, with chroqnic stomach
and liver trouble, but at last I won.
anI cured my diseases, by the use of

THE DIVINiNG ROD.
Its First Recorded Use Wan For LO
eating Mieral Lodes.
Professor W. F. Barrett. F. RI. S.,
says that the birthplace of the mod
ern divining rod, whether used to locate
minerals or water, was in the mining
districts of Germany, probably the
Harz mountains. Its first recorded use
was in prospecting for mineral lodes.
The first mention of the use of the
modern rod was in the latter part of
the fifteenth century. Books published
in the sixteenth century have pictures
of miners searching for mineral veins
in a very businesslike way by noting
the dipping of a hazel or willow rod,
'the forked ends of which are held In
the hands of an expert.
German miners brought the forked
rod Into Engicrtd toward the end of the
sixteenth century for the exploitation
of the Cornish mines. Professor Bar
rett points out that the drooping char
acter of the willow was probably be
lieved to have something to do with the
minerals concealed In the ground and
that ''it was but natural to cut a light
branch from one of the trees and to
see if it drooped in prospecting for
ores." Thus the "dowsing rod" came
Into universal use among the minerb of
Europe, although it was soon believed
that only certain persons had the gift
