"Lift up your heads, 0 ye gates; and
be ye lifted up, ye ererltuiiinir doors:
and the King of Glory shall coma in."
n. xxlv, 7.
In oldun times when a great con
queror returned from victorious witr,
the people in wild transport would
take hold Of the gates of the city and
lift them from their hinges, as much
as to say: "This city needs no more

my emotions, when, near tho close of
a jouruey, in which we had for two
nights encamped amid the shattered
masonry of old Jenoho, and tasted of
the acrid waters of the Dead Bea, that
crystal sarcophagus of the buried cities
of the plain, and waded down into the
deep and swift Jordou to baptise a
man, and visited the ruins of the
house of Mury and Martha and Lout'

and on horse, lathered with the long

the base of the hill flushed the lanterns

the boughs were toru off and thrown
into the path of Christ's triumphal
procession. Up and down that road
Jesus had walked twioe a day from
Bethany to Jerusalem, and from Joru
salem to Bethany. There, again and
again, be had taught his disciples.
Half way up this mount he uttered his

On Mount Olivet Jesus stuuds in a
group of Galiloe flshermon. They had
been together in many scenes of sud-
and persecution and had been the
more endeared by that brotherhood, of
suffering. They bad expected him to
stay until the day of coronation when
he would take the earthly throne and
wave a scepter mightier, and rule a
dominion wider, than any Pharaoh,
than any David, than any Ctcsar. But
now all these anticipations oollapse.
Christ has given bis last advice. He
has offered his last sympathy. He has
spoken his lust word. His bands are
spread apart as ou is apt to do wbou
ha pronounces a benediction, when
suddenly the strongest and most stu
pendous law of all worlds is shattered.
It is the law which, since the worlds
era created, holds them together. It
is the law whioh holds everything to
tha earth, or, temporarily hurled from
earth, returns it; the law whioh keeps
tha planets whirling around our sun,
and our solar system whirling around
other systems, and all the systems
whirling around the throne of God
tha law of gravitation. Thut law is
suspended, or relaxed, or broken, to
lot the body of Jesus go. That law
had laid bold of him tbirty-throe years
before, when ha descended. It bad re
laxed its htid of bim but once, and
that when it declined to sink him
front tha too of tha waves on Lake
Galilee, on whioh ba walked, to the I
bottom of the lake. That law of a-ravi-
talinn must now viva war to him who I
mad a tha law. It mar hold tha other
stars, but it cannot longer hold the
Morning BLar of the Redemption. It
may bold tha noonday sun, but Itcan-
not hold tha Sun of Righteousness.
Tha anirera of tha law are about to
ooen to let rra the most illustrious Be- I
ing tha world had aver seen, and
whom it bad worst maltreatod. The
stronirest law of future whioh Dhiloso-
pners ever wslffned or measured must
last viva way. It Will brak ba-

I am so glad that Christ broko the
natural law of gravitation when he
shook off from his foot the clutch of
cold, ironunsympathetic, natural law

law is a majestic thing, but the God
who made it has a right to break it
and again and again has broken it, and
again aud again will break it, A law
is only God's way of doing things, and
if he chooses to do them some other
way he has a right to do so. A law is
