Luke ix : 1. Oo up? t:ll I coaie."
The parables of our Blessed Lord are
mostly drawn from circumstances with
which everyone is familiar. The cornfields
in the time of sowing or.of reaping or the
cultivation and pruning of the trees ii
marriau'e festival ; thee in turn furnished
matter for divine teaching. Political events
we re but seldom referred to. for these are
trani-iit and soon forgotten ; or, if remem
bered, :ire less applicable to all generations,
and nationalities, than circumstances
of every-day life. In this respect the
parable of the pounds from w hich the text
is taken is somewhat exceptional. It con
tains an undoubted, and, what mist have
been at the time, a very striking reference
to a political event which was still fresh in
the minds of the Jewi-h people. The pic
ture that the parable presents of a certain
nobleman going into a far country to re
ceive for himself a kingdom, and to return,
must have instantly recalled to the minds
of his hearers the journey of Archelaus to
I tome, after the death of Herod, to obtain
the confirmation of his father's will be
queathing to him, in place of his elder
brother Antipas, the sovereignty of Judea ;
and when the parable presented the further
picture of the message that followed him
from his fellow citizens : We will not have
this man to reign over us" there would
have Hashed into every mind the remem
brance of the deputation that followed the
hated Archelaus to the Imperial Court to
oppose his claims.
It is not, then, a merely imaginary cir
cumstance which forms the groundwork
of a parable in which our Blessed Ixnl
sets before us his own departure from the
earth, to receive from the Father the
sovereignty over the race He had redeemed,
and to take His seat at fJod's right hand,
invested with all power in heaven and
earth, until that day when He shall come
again in glory, and all the holy angels in
attendance on His Majesty, to reward every
man according as his work shall be. Ou
the contrary : the point and force that the
parable derives from its reference to recent
events in Jewish history supplies the Divine
sanction for drawing spiritual lessons from
current earthly events, and making matters
of temporal interest the means of deepen
ing in our souls our hold upon eternal
Surely, then, it cannot be amiss if, whilst
we thank Almighty (Jod, as we have done
to-day, for the safe return of our Sovereign
to his island throne, we find matter in an
event which has filled the city with re
joicing, to lift our thoughts to a higher
place. The enthusiastic welcome which
greeted His Majesty's return to his own
shores, after travelling the entire circuit
of the globe on a visit to many kingdoms
and cities, both in the East and West, is
suggestive of a very serious inquiry : Are
we waiting and watching for the return of
the King of Kings and Lord of Ixirds,
knowing that Ho wiil come at an hour
when we look not for him, and will find the
world less prepared for His coming than
this city was for His Majesty's arrival on'
the 20th of October? Are our hearts so full
of gratitude for the redemption that Christ
lias wrougnt V Are we so longing and
waiting for His salvation, that we should
greet His advent with hosannas, such as
those that hailed his entry into Jerusalem
before His Passion, when the streets were
strewn with palm-branches, ami carpeted
with the robes of an enthusiastic throng ?
Or, are we like those who sent a message to
Rome to oppose the claims of Archelaus to
a crown . Are we among tuose who retuse
to take Christ's easy yoke upon us, and
who will not own His title to the universal
sovereignty of mankind ? To such the
Second Advent of the Lord from heaven,
whether they be among the quick or dead,
must bring fear and terror of that Majesty
which they all must own : and they will
call upon the rocks to fall on them, and the
hills to cover them, and hide them from
the wrath of the Iamh. Jet us then to-tlav
lav to heart our Blessed Lord's farewell
injunction. In the parting words of the
nobleman to his servants in the parable, we
may hear our saviour speaking to us, and
saying in resect to all the privileges of
nature and ol grace that we enjoy : uccupy
till I come" or, as it is in the Revised
Version, "Trade herewith till I come."
He speaks to all who are called by His name
to rulers and subjects ; to those in au
thority and those under authority ; to high
and low, rich and poor, and bids them
"occupy till He comes." The pound de
livered to each in the parable represents the
opportunities that each possesses for the
advancement of Christ's kingdom and
glorj Whether those opportunities be
great or small ; whether thy talents be
many or few, use them for this object for
the one end that shall endure the wreck of
all earthly things.
The history of the world until the coming
of Christ is the history of the unfolding of
the eternal counsels of dod for bringing
into the world the Redeemer of mankind.
The rise and fall of empires was made sub
servient to this end ; and when the fulness
of time was come, (lod sent forth His Son
to take our nature upon Him, and, by His
death ami resurrection, work out the mys
tery of Redemption which was ordained
before the world was made. The time
when Christ was on earth is the dividing
line in the world's history. Since His
ascension, the onward march of Christ's
kingdom, and the gathering of the nations
into it, has been the thread by which to
unravel the skein of history. To the conr
summation of that kingdom all things are
now tending; and, when at length all the
glory of the Lord shall be revealed, then
will all earthly power ami glory melt away,
and the kingdom of this world will become
the kingdoms of our God ami of His Christ
a kingdom which shall not be destroyed ;
and he shall reign for ever and ever. Here,
then, is the end we must have in view, if
we would 1'ultll the injunction of our Lord :
'Occupy till I come." Great are the
blessing's bestowed upon this Island State.
God grant that they may so be used as to
be the parents of richer blessings in the
future. It was not merely an Hawaiian
enconium of Hawaii that was expressed in
the greeting that first met Your Majesty's
eye a- j'ou approached these shores: "E
hoi, e ka Lani o Hawaii, no ka oi." For
though it be the least among the kingdoms
of the earth, yet Hawaii has many surpass
ing excellences. In what other country is
there so little poverty and want? Behind
the stately buildings and palatial dwellings
of the cities of Europe is to be found abject
wretchedness, squalor, and distress. Here
there seems to be a suspension of the uni
versal law that the poor shall never cease
out of the land. Where else can be enjoj'ed
greater security of life and property than is
enjoyed in this realm where we can sleep
with open doors, and a lady may travel
alone from Kau to Niihau without fear of
molestation ? Though situate within the
tropics, the heat of the climate is so tem
pered by the beneficent trade winds that
immigrants from northern climes can pur
sue their daily avocations without incon
venience or detriment to health. Such is
the fertility of the soil, that of all sugar
producing countries of the world these
islands stand first in their yield per acre.
"Nor against this richness of production

pouo" In righteousness lies the secret of
ftabihty and xxiwer. To the human eve the
strength of a nation consists iu armies and
navies, and muuitions of war. But these
may become as the chart" of the summer ,
tnreshi tig-floors if once the armor of right- ;
eousness be laid aside. What citv in an- :
cient times appeared more impregnable
than Babylon? But when once the" hand- :
writing on the wall had cone forth against
it "Mene, Mene. Tckel," Cpharsin " how
vain were the defences to which Belha.zar
trusted. The same night the Persian army i
entered the city, and Babylon became
heaps, which remain in their" deso'.at ion to
this day. Where is the splendor of the
Court of Solomon, and the stately palaces
and gardens that dazzled and f:sefn:ite.l the
Queen of sj,eha ? Th- .'Xtinsruishing of
that glory is foreeast in the Tth Psalm,
whera?, along with the promise of a throne
that should endure for ever, are mingled
words of warning: " If his children f.irs-tke
my law, and walk not in mv judgments,
I will visit their ohVnees with" the r I, and
their sin with scourges." Your Majesty's
visit to Siam will enable you to picture" to
yourself those scenes of sumptuous magnifi
cence with which Xehemiah was famidar
in the palace of Shushan, and with which
we associate the memories of Vashti and
Esther. Where are now the marble pave
ments, the pillared courts, the gorgeous
hangings, the terraced gardens if "those
wonderful palaces, the glories of Artaxerxes
ami Ahasucrus ? Buried, like the palaces
of Nineveh, in a heap of ruins beneath the
accumulating soil of centuries a witness of
tlft unerring Word: "The nation and

The stability of a throne, then, does not
rest on ornaments, and fortresses, and ex
ternal signs of magnificence and power ;
nor does it rest in the education of the
leople if education be taken in its modern
sense of imparting knowledge without wis.
dom, of sharpening the wits without the
training of the moral sense so that the
present generation is being sent forth into
the world like a loat with its canvas
spread, and no one at the helm. In the
fiendish conspiracies to which the Emperor
of Russia fell a victim, and in the grievous
loss which has filled the United States with
mourning, we may read, if we have eyes to
see, the inevitable result of cducation'with
out religion. The cultivation of the intel- ;
lectual towers alone will not make men
good citizens or loyal subjects. Religion
alone will make men true and just, submis
sive and loyal. It reveals the source of au
thority, and supplies the sanctions for
humility, obedience, and respect. Of what
avails it to teach your children precepts of
morality if you leave out of sight the foun
dations of 'that morality. You will be
spending your time like infants in building
a house of cards which, at the first puff of
wind, tumbles before yourej'es. If for one
moment I may turn your thoughts to those
shores which His Majesty so lately left, I
will ask wherein has lain the secret of
Great Britain's influence and power? Is it
not in her religion, and the truth and jus
tice that religion inspires? She has not
thought scorn of that heavenly wisdom
who speaks in the Book of Proverbs : " By
me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
By me princes rule, and nobles, even all
the judges of the earth." The worship that
daily ascends from her ancient sanctuaries,
the reverence for the Lord's Day that
everywhere prevails, are the evidences of
the faith that is interwoven with all her
institutions. So closely is the state of Eng
land allied with the CP rch of Christ, that
one might as well en . "or to tear asunder
two trees that haver vn together, inter
lacing one another froui the root upward,
as to separate the State of England from
the enfolding embrace of the Church of
What the Church of England has been :
through many generations to the English '
people, that in its small degree this furthest
offshoot of that Church would fain be to
the Hawaiian people. Too backward In '
the years that are past was the English !
Church in giving the light of the Gospel to
these isles of the sea. Long before our
mission came, at the invitation of a former :
King, others had labored before us, and we
are entered into their labours. Thus our j
Church's opportunities were narrowed. !
Nevertheless, according to our opportuni- i
ties, the Church has striven to uphold those
principles of truth and justice, religion and ;
piety, which are the foundations of a na- ;
t ion's stability and strength. Our need to- i
day is to possess a sanctuary of our faith
and worship which shall declare the honor ;
of the Saviour's name to all generations, j
There are those who would maintain that ,
religion stands not in columned aisles and '
vaulted roof, but is a thing so spiritual that
it needs no material structures to preserve
it. But this is not the teaching of Revela
tion. What is more spiritual than light ? .
Yet He who called it into being made for it :
two great light-holders. If man were pure
spirit he would need no temple in which to ;
worship. In his vision of the Eternal City, '
St. John beheld no temple therein, for the j
Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the ;
temple of it. But here on earth man con- '
sists of body and spirit. The body is not
yet spiritual, but of the earth, earthj'.
What the bod' is to the soul, what the husk
is to the kernel; what the casket to the
jewel, what the canvas to the painting
that the material structures that men have
raised to the glory of the Saviour's name
are to the worship which is offered therein.
Your Majesty lias listened to the voice
less eloquence of those grand Cathedrals of
Europe, which stirs the heart of generation .
after generation to adore and bless the
Redeemer's love. Those old builders built '
not for themselves alone, hut for those who
should come after them. What patience, ;
what wisdom, what resolution, what love j
they manifested ! Their names are for- j
gotten, but their works do follow them.
Can we not imitate in some degree the '.
noble example that they have left behind
them. There is no need to send to the :
other side of the globe for materials that !
we need. The providence of God has placed
at our very doors a stone that can hardly !
be surpassed. AH that we need is one who
can arouse a spirit of enthusiasm Uko that
which Xehemiah awoke In the hearts of
the nobles of Judah, when, with one accord,
they determined to " rise up and build."
Until this resolution is formed in every
heart, we cannot as a Church fulfil the in
junction of the text, to trade with the bless
ings that God has bestowed upon us. We
are hiding our pound in a napkin. The
erection of such a church as has been de
signed as a monument to a predecessor of
His Majesty will be but a sma.ll return to
Him who has so bountifully blessed this
land. If we have no poor on whom to
bestow our liberality for Jesus' sake, let us
bestow it directly on Jesus Christ himself,
and the promotion of His glory.
It will add further lustre to Your Majesty's
reign to have furthered the erection of this
church which has long been contemplated.
It cannot be forgotten how King David of
old was spurred on to build the Temple by
the comparison of his own palace of cedar,
with the mere tent that served in his day
as the sanctuary of the Presence of God.
Yet that tabernacle was infinitely richer
and more costly than this miserable shell, j
which for these many years has been the
sanctuary of our faitfi. David, however,
was not iiermhted to build the house for j
which he provided ine maieriai. tun in
these days we enjoy the peace and pros
perity of the reien of Solomon. May it
then'be granted that the reign of the Ha
waiian David may be made illustrious not
only bv preparations for a Temple to the
Lord of Hosts, but by its completion also.
And when it is built, may it be the safe
guard and witness of a pure and uncorrupted
faith from generation to generation ; a
sanctuary iu which the people of many
nations will unite in the praise of their
common Saviour and Redeemer; the con
tinual upholder of that righteousness which
exalteth a nation so that truth and peace,
religion and piety may be established in
this Kingdom for all generations. So at
the Second Coining of the Lord from heaven
in place of being involved in the condem
nation of that servant who bid his lord's
money, and made no u.e of his opportuni
ties for good, we may receive the blessings
of those servants who traded with the
pound tlu vhad received to such advantage,
that one 'had made ten pounds, another
five, and wre severally reworded according
to their works: "Thou hast been faithful
in a very little, have thou authority over
ten cities ; " " be thou over five cities."
