SPIRITS IN PRISON
By Wni. Stitts, the International Bible
The question ofttlmes arises In the
minds, of Bible rtudents, "Who are the
spirits In prison and why arc they
there?" The answer heretofore given
was unsatisfactory to all students of
the Bible. It has been stated that
thosd spirits are human beings who
died before the Hood and -when Christ
was dead th-oe days, ho was In Hell
preaching to them. Let us take God's
word. He is his own Interpreter. He
will take the Scripture for our Guide.
If Christ Is dead He could not do any
declaiming to them for the dead know
not anything. They have no memory.
Eccl. 9:5-10. For It Is gone; his
breath goeth from him; In that very
day his thoughts perish. Pis. 146:4.
The soul Is dead and is In hell, hades,
the Invisible grave. They are not en

city on account of the death of his
mother, Is spending a few days with

Mr. Campbell, a young man and stran
ger to us, arrived' aat this city last

the acquaintances he formed was that
of Miss Oakly Berry, an Industrious

sight was in evidence and his proposal,
which wa9 the outgrowth of snap
judgment, soon culminated In their
happy marriage by Rev. Oakes, Satur
day afternoon. We bid them a pleas
ant journey.... A restaurant that will
be prepared to serve lunches and
meals at al hours, has been the desire
of our citizen's and visitors for years.
Our desire was realized last Sunday,
when we attended the grand opening
of the "Ideal Restaurant" under the
management of Mr. Thos Banks and
Mr. James Burton, In, a suitable build
ing located in a convenient place. With
such business men as proprietors we
prophesy the growth and development

Melimla Lewis still lives and resides
alone at her quaint home In this city.
She Is known throughout the country
and by many citizens of this and sur
rounding states because of her pecul
iar manne- of dress and conversation.
Her hats and shoes are wrapped with
white cloth, while her dresses and
cloaks of the same color suggest the
name she has been given, ;'the angel."
To speak In a familiar term -we say
Aunt Mellnda's conversations abound
In home spin wit and in prophetic
words and messages Jesus told her.
That no cyclone should visit this city
so long as she Is one -of Us citizens
has held good. As to her age she de
clares positively that a century with
a few years Is behind her. She saw
the present settlement when It was a
primeval forest. Discarding a few
complaints Aunt Melinda enjoys very
good health,, and besides her house
hold chores, does laundry work.

With over one thousand

only properly accommodate our

be done at some time. Why not
do It soon? Masonry has a.
ways taken pride In big enter

The public looks to us as to no
one else for these things anu
we owe It to our obligations as
well as to our traditions to ful
fill the demand. If Grand Mas
ter Crews, like our first grand
master, can succeed In Inspiring
such an undertaking it will
surely stand as a great monu
ment to the zeal .which he so
generously possesses and will
yield a result not only placing
his name high upon the scroll of
leaders, but carrying a 'blessing
throughout years to come. With
a structure of sufficient size con
trolled by us, It would be an
easy matter to Irnve the Grand

weary of the process. Soon

pain. They are waiting for a Resur
rection both good and evil.' St. John
5:25-28. With a& Intellectual and an
enlightened eye of understanding we
can see that those spirits could not be
tho spirits of human beings for this
subject does not apply to man. God
made man a living soul. Gen. 2:7.
God made the angels, spirits. P '.
104:4; Heb. 1:7. This subject appl.es
to angelic, sinners; they also are
called the sons of God. Job 38:7. By
searching the' scripture we learn that
those spirits which Christ preached to
were the angelic sinners. There are
angelic sinners and human sinners.
When man sinned ho was condemned
and sentenced to death. Gen. 3:3.
For we know that the wages of sin is
death. Rom. '0:23. But when the an
gels Binned they were condemned and
sentenced to chains of darkness. Jude
1:6. This -was the prison mentioned
in Pet. 3:18-19. Now I will attempt
to interest you. The question arises,
"Why were they there and why did
God sentence them to prison? What
crime did they commit?" We answer
by 'Divine authority. They committed
fornication. Jude 1:6-7. Tho angels
who kept not their first estate but left
their own habitation, he hath reserved
In everlasting chains under darkness
unto the judgment of the great day
The Mlllenlal In which Christ will
reign a thousand years. These An
gelic sinners will be there for their
trial, for we know that the Saints
shall judge angels. 1 Cor. 6:3; Rev,
20:6; Acts 17:31. Man was under the
administration of the angels from the
time he sinned In the Garden of Eden
to the flood. Gen. 3:24. Peter fur
nlshes us a statement that these spir
its became disobedient In the days of
Noah. I Pet. 3:20. We still find
where they are called the Sons of God
The Sons of God saw 'the daughters of
men and they were fair and they took
unto them, wives, all of which they
chose. Gen. 6:2. God was not pleas
ed with their lnter-marriage so he sent
a flood and destroyed them off the face
ot the earth. The children of these
Sons of God and the daughters of men
were great men of renown. They were
part angelic and part human beings.
They were horn In a lustful condi
tion. God did not sentence them to
death but to prison. The next ques
tion arises, "Where are the prisons?
Peter tells us that their prison Is Hell.
Note thU word Hell Is from the Greek
word (Tartarus), It doeB not mean
the grave, neither the, second death
symDouzeu oy me lane oi nre. u f ei.
2:4, but Its reference Is to darkness.
The atmosphere of the air nd an act
of restriction being cut off from light
not being permitted to work their de
ceptions In daylight, but Is cut off "by
darkness which are the restrictions
symbolized by chains. Jude 1:C. So
Christ went nnd preached to them
when he went to and fro through the
earth while He was alive and not
when Ho was dead, for when our Lord
was on earth at his first advent, these
spirits frequented the earth; also
whenever ho came In contact with
them, they cried to him and his con
versation was a sermon to them, Luke
8:30-36, They are condemned but not
to death. They are restrained but
not destroyed. They are not permit
ted to roam the earth in daylight as
they did before the flood. They do not
any more posses human bodies.
