provided for His redeemed ones, and how
little of it they actually possess: and the
inheritance, for the most part, hinges ou
the answer to the question, "Rave you
received tbo Holy Ghost since yo be?

No, no, no, a thousand times no! Con
secratiou, our conpecrntion, never can
take the place of tbo Ho'y tihpst. He is
a Person?One in the God Head?co-equal
and co eternal with the Father and Son.
Consecration is good as far us it goes,
but at best it is only an act, and not a
person, and as such has no vitality in
itself; and that which has no lifo oanuot
give life. Consecration may result in
consequence of our being with some, one
who has received the Holy Sp'rit, or be?
cause we ourselves have Him with or in
us. Rut In no sense cau it take His
piece. (Jod would not to dishonor the
Holy Spirit by letting anything human,
even if it is our "all',' time His place.
Lei us seek and,talk more of His conse?

On, beloved, do le* us honor the Holy
Spirit. Give Him His right place?the
place (Jod tho Father and the Son gave
Him. Receive Him into a believing
heart and you not only have the Holy
Spirit Himself, but you have the Father
and the Son as you cau never have them
in any other way.
I used to think I knew and loved Jesus;
but, dear one. 1 had no conception of His
character then, .as I now compare it
with thn actual, real, personal and living
knowledge of His character as it is being
revealed to me day by day by the Holy
Spiilt. Jesus was sent to reveal the
Father to us. Air' so it happens, con?
sequent on receiving the Holy Ghost, we
receive t he Triune God within us. hach
revealing the other. How Bimple of un?
derstanding ficm this point of view, and
yet so ruysi leal from any other. Oh,
bow stupid we all have been, to be sure,
seeking entrance into the mysteries
every other way but the right way?just
a simple command. If we are otiedient
we shall have some such experience as
Saul of Tarsus had when be received the
Holy Ghost; ami there "fell from Ids
eyes as it were scales.'"
we are Win4 inside and our. "Rliml
loideis of tlit? blind," and all because we
fail to realise theiiupo'tance'of obedience
to His sin.plo command, "Receive ye the
Holy Ghost." Oh, tho rich and prec oils
promises that binge ou our receiving
"the Comforter." Take your Bible and
your B'ble concordance and look them
up, and just see for yourself the inheri?
tance rvhich might be yours right here
and now. .Tu.-t let us take one promise.
Jesus said to the disciples-. "He shall
show you things to come." Docs that
look at all significant to you in these
days when all around tho world, from
every quarter, the saints of God are lift?
ing up their heads in .joyful anticipation
that the coming of Jesus is very near at
hand You cannot know from any other
source whether thi3 expectancy is more
thin a passing fancy or not, unless you
receive the Holy Ghost. He nlcne can
giv<: authentic knowledge of "things to
come." You wi 1 not take my word for
it that "Jesus is coming." You cannot.
God has so planned it that the "wise"
only "shall understand." Who are the
wise? Jesus says, "The wise have oil.*1
And, dear one, don't you Knotv that the
"oil" means the Holy Ghost. If von will
but receive Him Ho will let you know
whether it is true or not that ?'Jesus is
corning That is one uf His specific du?
ties, and to prepare the Bride for Christ.
Ami He cannot prepare you ti'l you rc
ceivo Him. And you cannot receive you r
knowledge intelligently In any other way
than through the Holv Ghost. You may
read all the bonks on chronology and all
the testimonies of the ages that arc beitur
gatheied together to prove thai His com
ing is near at hand, and it will all seem
as incrrdib'.o ami nonsensical as His fit at
coming did to the pious Jew, unless tho
Holy Spirit dwells within and te.-tilies
to th" truths of "these i lungs shortly to
come to pass!" If you expect to receive
your notice of tli>? Lord's return front
any other source you will realize your
mistake when it is too late tri remedy ir.
These things are committed to the Holy
Ghost, and unless you receive Him you
will not be in f position to receive His
testimony to the truth of these things, in
and through others. "Jesus is coming.1'
Thousands and thousands already know
it. Do you:- "Receive ye the Holy Ohost
? ' He shall show you things to
conic.'' Will you let Him?
To li'.e. the coming of Jesus seems Infin?
itely more real than death, and yet peo?
ple are dying in every direction; and the
joy of his near-coming is liecomlng the
paramount thought, .sleeping and wak?
ing. So manv of God's children seem
sr and asleep just when they ought to bo
awake with lumps full of oil. trimmed
nnd bnruing; they are resting and sleep?
ing in Zlon. If you undertake to whin

the Holy Spirit, in order to bo ready

It ought to interest everybody to
know that the terrible affliction
called Scrofula is the forerunner of a
still more terrible disease. Scrofula
is the seed of consumption. It is so
deep-seated and obstinate that not
one doctor in a hundred can cure it.
To cure Scrofula, you must cure tho
blood. You must go down to tho
roots and reach deep. A glossing
over with mineral poisons is not
only useless, but makes tilings a
great deal worse.

when nothing else will. It purifies
and vitalizes tho blood. It drives
out the poisonous elements. It stops
the accumulation of morbid deposits.
It is purely vegetable, and, is the

it is good for. If you have Scrofula,
