House lirt! many
For more than
four thousand years before the Savior
cauio, no suggestion bad been made re
specting any home for humanity aside
from this earth. The paradise of
Eden, lost through disobedience, and
God's image In humanity, almost
obliterated by sin and death, God
promised to restore. The right to life
forfeited by Adam for himself and his
race, God purposed to restore to all
the willing and obedient. But all these
blessings were to come through a Be
deemer, the Mediator of the New Cove
nant, (lie Messiah.
Humanity knew not the possibilities
of Restitution, but Israel had the fact
typified in their Jubilee year of Resti
tution, which occurred every fifty
years. They also had typical sacri
fices of a Passover lamb and Atone
ment Day offerings, representing some
means by which God justly met for
them tlio requirements of Ills own
Law. They realized not that this
satisfaction of Justice would be ac
complished by the death of the very
Redeemer who subsequently would be
Their minds naturally dwelt espe
clally upon the great fact that Mes
slab was to be of Jewish stock; and
that Israel was to have the first chance
of the choicest blessings In connection
with Messiah's Kingdom. As they
| waited for Messiah and His Kingdom,
j they fondly anticipated their own na
tional blessing. Seemingly, they over
j looked the fact that the blessing would
| be an Individual one, in harmony with
i the Divine arrangement. They hoped
for a resurrection from the dead "at
! the last day,"—in the great Seventh
j Thousand-Year Day or Epoch, and ex
j pected it to bring them from the sleep i
of deatli back to earthly conditions.
Some of theui hoped for a "better
j resurrection" than the majority, be
| cause of their loyalty to God and their
j willingness to suffer for righteousness;
i but even these expected to be, not an
| gels, but men. Was not Abraham liini
j self promised that all tho land which
he could see should, eventually, be his?
. What could this mean except that he
! would be resurrected, as an earthly
being, to enjoy this promised inheri
tance? St. Stephen points out that
Abraham never received, in fulfilment
of God's promise, as much of that
land "as to set bis foot upon." (Acts
: vit, 5.) Undoubtedly, therefore, the en
i tire promise of the land is future. The
possession will come to Abraham, and
will be given to his seed, bis posterity,

God's plan was allowed to rest as

accomplish another and different work.
He began to ( all the Bride class from

with Himself in His Kingdom. He told
them that those who tittaln unto that

xx, 35, 30.
No wonder the Apostles were sur
prised! No wonder Xicodemus hesitat
ed to endorse something so different
from what be bad anticipated in the
way of blessing; and he came to Jesus
by night to Inquire further! No wonder
the Master's words were perplexing
when He said, "Ve must be born
again!" No wonder Xicodemus, in per
plexit.v, asked about this spirit birth
and found the answers perplexing!
Jesus did not attempt to give him a
full explanation, but merely said that

Restitution Waits, but Not Abandoned.
The whole matter is plain in the light
, of the New Testament teaching. Be
i fore the time for blessing the world.
! God is selecting therefrom a class to
| constitute the Bride of Christ, the
faithful I.lttle Flock. The Church is to
; be associated with lllm in blessing the
human family with Restitution. But
the Bride class itself is to experience u
I change of nature from human to splr
| Itual. This was difficult for the Apos
| ties to understand. Their minds would
i continually revert to nil earthly king
! dom, but the Master repeatedly drew j
* i their nttentiou nway from the earthly.
m i He declared, "M.v Kingdom Is not of
j this Age," and told the disciples that
He would come again in power and
| great glory, and all the holy angels
j | with Him; and that~then lie would sit
' upon the Throne of His Glory—upon
which they would sit with Him, if
faithful even unto sacrificial deuth.
Tha Heavenly Mansions.
The Lord endeavored to draw the
( minds of His*followers away from the
earthly hopes of an earthly kingdom,
which they held in common with all
j j Jews. The disciples knew of various
t I orders of lieings on the angelic plane—
-1 I cherubim, seraphim and ordinary an
' I gels. .Tesus made no suggestion of
5 , changing His disciples into any of these
• I angelic orders. Rather, He gave them
. j to understand that they would const 1-
i tuto a new order of creatures. The
questions then naturally arose, Is there
a possibility of having a still different
, order of beings on the Heavenly plane?
112 j Did not the creation of man a little
lower than angels imply a sufficient va
,* rlety of creations on the angelic plane
s These questions would seem propel
; enough; and to these our Lord's words.
I make answer: "In My Father's House
i are many mansions"—many apart
► ments, many divisions. Yet all are
i holy, all are In full accord with Him
and with each other. "I goto prepart
. I a place for you," My followers—a
j Heavenly mansion,
i St. Peter, discussing the subject, tells 1
us that in God's providence the Church
is not only a New Creation, but a crea
tion on a higher plane than any other
of (Jod's creation. St. Paul says, that!
I our Lord Jesus, having finished the
work which the Father gave Him to do,
I "ascended on High," to the right hand
of 1 lie Divine Majesty, to the place of
, chief favor. He declares that this po
I sition ta "far above angels, principal!
ties and powers and every name that is
nnmed."—Epliesians 1, 21.
St. John, speaking of the Church, de
clares that we may not yet fully appre
i clnte what we shall be, but we may
"know that, when He shall appeal
[our Redeemer), ve shall be like Him
for we shall see !L: i as lie Is." (I John
ill, 2.) St. Peter, however, tells us the
real height to which the Church, tin
Bride of Christ, Is to be exalted. He
says, <Jod hath given "unto us exceed
ing great and precious promises, that
by these (working in us His will 1 wc
might become partakers of the Divliu
nature." — II Peter i, 4.
The Heavenly Three.
Following the testimony of the Word
of God, we recognize Jehovah God
Himself, from everlasting to everlast
ing God, the Head, the King, the Fu
ther, of whom are all things. Next to
the Father we recognize our Heavenlj
Lord, whose name at first was the Lo
gos, the Word of God, His Messenger,
who subsequently was made flesh |
dwelt among us and redeemed us; and |
who, as a reward, has been exalted to 1
the Divine nature and is set at the
right hand of Jehovah God, to begin !
Ills work of blessing mankind. He;
waits also until the Church, His Bride. ;
shall have been completed and shall j
have passed beyond the veil, to be for j
ever with Iliiu on the Divine plane. !
These are the Heavenly Three—all
of the Divine Nature, far above all j
other natures, all other planes of ex- ,
lsteuce. Vet always we are tore- ■
member that the Head of the Church j
is Christ, and the Head of Christ is
God, as St. Paul declares: for although i
all of God's blessings are by the Son. !
yet those blessings are all from the i
Father.—l Corinthians viii, C.
In passing, we should note how
these Scriptures and air the Scriptures
continually show that the Heavenly
Father was not Ills own Son and that
the Heavenly Son was not His own !
Father. In our text the Master de
clares, "In My Father's House are j
many mansions." Jesus, the chief Son. '
has special privileges and special pow
er; audit is by tlie Father's arrange
ment that (he Bride, the Lamb's Wife,
is to be brought Into the highest of
Heavenly mansions, the Divine na
ture, to be Joint-heir with her Lord in j
His Messianic reign and In His ever
lasting glory thereafter.
"I Goto Prepare a Place."
But why did Jesus need togo to pre- '
pare a place? Ills disciples did not j
wish Him togo and leave them. When- *
ever He spoke along this line they j
were grieved and perplexed; and on j
one occasion St. Peter brought upon i
himself a special rebuke by saying. J
"Be It far from Thee, Lord; these I
things shall not happen unto Thee." '
The disciples were like children. They
hnd absolute confidence that they were
to share with Messiah the glories of
Ills Messianic Kingdom. They won

them and attend to the establishment
of the Kingdom at that time; or if It j
were necessary to wait for a season. I

any intimation respecting the length of i
the Gospel Age, lest the knowledge-j
should discourage them. Therefore He-'
merely said, "It Is expedient for you. J
thnt I go away"—necessary for you !
l.'nless He should go away, the Holy J
Spirit would not come upon them. They j

and which they experienced when lit- i

work miracles and to proclaim the Gos ■
pel of the Kingdom.
After Pentecost, when enlightened by
the Holy Spirit, they could understand
the necessity for Jesus' leaving and for
; His receiving the Holy Spirit begetting
to the Dlvlno nature. They, like all
j mankind, were children of Adam aud
| therefore Inheritors of lilrs death sen
tence. The Father could not, according '
to His own just laws, recognize sinners
as sons. Before they could receive tlie
Divine begetting of tlie Holy Spirit

Father the merit of His own sacrifice,
and proposed to adopt us as Ills mem
bers. Then Divine Justice accepted the
Advocate's proposal, and that meant
the acceptance of our proffered sacri
fices, as the members of Jesus.
Ten days after our Lord left Ills
Apostles, the Pentecostal blessing
came upon them. St. Peter explains
that It was the Heavenly Father's rec
ognition of His acceptance of the fol
lowers of Jesus who were entering Into
covenant relationship through Him by
the covenant of self-sacrifice. The
transaction involved all subsequent
k members of the Household of Faith to
the end of this Age. As a result, the
Holy Spirit came upon the consecrated.
They were to be made ehilireu of (Jod;
and "if children, then heirs, heirs of
God and joint-heirs with Christ, our
Lord, if so be that we suffer with Him,

—Romans viii, 17.
Growth In Grace.
Mistakenly, in the past, many of us j
have supposed justification to be the j
goal of the Christian—merely the for- ;
giveuess of sins. Now we see that
tills was a great mistake. Now we !
see that Justification by faith Is only
i a stepping stone to sanctiflcatlon—the ,
beget I In# of the Holy Spirit as New .
Creatures in Christ. Moreover, we |
see that even our sanctiflcatlon by the
begetting of the Holy Spirit is not
sufficient, nor our goal.
The Spirit-begotten ones must grow-
In grace, In knowledge, In all the fruits
and graces of the Holy Spirit. They
must be tested and proved as to their
loyalty and faithfulness. Fiery trials,
testings, tribulations, must be allowed
to come against them to prove the
depth and sincerity of their love for
God. Graciously, their testings are
not along the lines of the flesh, which
is acknowledged to be Imperfect, weak,
and which Is acceptable as a sacrifice
only through the merit of .Tesus. Their
testings and acceptance are according
to their mind, their will, as New Crea
tures in Christ.
"I Will Come Again."
The Master would be absent during
the period of the selection of the Bride
class—ln Heaven Itself. Yet by Ills
Spirit or Power, the Holy Spirit, which
is also the Spirit or Power of the
Father, lie would have full knowl
edge of all the affairs of Ills people
and would providentially make "all
things woi together for good to them
that love Him." Suffer they must; en-
I dure trials and testings they must, in
I order to prove their loyalty even unto
i death; but His grace would be suf
j flclent for them, and Ills strength
! would be made perfect in their weak
' Tiesses; and He would never leave
; them, In the sense of abandoning
j them. So long as they would abide
; in Hlni by faith aud by loyalty of
I heart-intention, lie would overrule all
i things for their good.
After tlie selection of the full num
| ber of the Bride class, He would come
again to receive them unto Himself.

' sense in which He has not been pres

As Satan has for a long time been

"the prince of this world," so Messiah,
after binding Satan for a thousand

MISSOURI CURE FOR GAPES
Disease Most Prevalent In Damp
Weather, Caused by Worm In
(By MRS. JOHN J. MOORE, Missouri.)
A most common disease among
chickens and one which causes great
loss in the summer is gapes. This
disease, which is most prevalent in
cool, damp weather, is caused by
worms, which get in the young chick's
windpipe, causing it to gasp for breath
and if not dislodged, shutting off Its
supply of air.
Sometimes the worm can be twisted
out with * horsehair, but this Is a
severe remedy and other worms may j
take its place.
The following is a preventative and
will check the trouble at once:
Obtain the leaves of the common
woodworm, sometimes called Jerusa
lem oak, a plant which grows wild in
most places, having an erect shrub
bery stem and small, yellowish flow
ers. Its leaves when crushed have
an unpleasant odor and are used in
the manufacture of vermifuge and to i
protect clothing and furniture from
moths and other insects.
Mash the leaves and mix in a small
quantity with the chicken's feed or
putin the drinking fountains.
Or, after the seeds have ripened,
i they may be used instead of the
, leaves and a quantity gathered for
