higher into realms of nobler thought,
better deeds, more joy, purer bliss
and happiness. So don't be discourag

IN FATHER'S HOUSE
Jesus New Makes Read For
His BiDIe, the Church.
Places For Humanity and For the
Angels of Various Degrees, Cher
urbim, Ssraphim, Principalities and
Powers, but None Previously Pre
pared For the. Bride She Is God's
New Creation Hers to Be the High
est Place, the Divine Nature.
Buffalo, N. T.,
Dec. 15. We re
port one of Pastor
here today from
the text, "In My
Father's House are
1 go to pre
pare a place for
you; 1 will
come again and re-
(PASTOR. gUSSELLlj self." John xiv,
The Heavenly Father "dwelleth not
in temples made with hands." In the
largest sense the whole Creation is
His House, every apartment of which
shall ultimately be peopled with boly,
happy beings. "All the wicked will He
destroy." Psalm cxlv, 20.
Man's fallen condition is the result
of heredity. God made Adam in His
own image, perfect, upright, holy. Dis
obedience and sin have wrought men
tal, moral and physical infirmities, and
There is none righteous, no, not one."
All are prone to sin "as the sparks to
God provided Adam a mansion the
earth Paradise. But sin (not unfore
seen) brought Adam and his race un
der a death sentence. God chose to
permit sin and death to reign during
Sir Great Days of a thousand years
each, thus to give valuable lessons to
both angels and men. He does not in
tend that this lesson shall work disad
vantage to aay. He has provided a
great Redemption, which shows His
sympathy for His creatures and the un
changeableness of His Law.
The Divine Program for dealing with
this rebellious province is to be car
ried out by the Kingdom of Messiah,
during the. Seventh Great Thousand-
year Day. Satan and every evil influ
ence shall be restrained. "The Sun of
Righteousness shall arise with healing
in His beams." and the curse of death
will be set aside. Man will be assist
ed toward righteousness and life ever
lasting by the interposition of the
Kingdom for which we pray. "Thy
Kingdom come; Thy will be done on
earth, even as it is done in Heaven."
Humanity's Mansion Perfected Earth.
At the close of Messiah's reign' the
"mansion" appropriated to Adam and
his race will be fully released from
the curse, and God's footstool will be
glorious Paradise. (Isaiah lx, 13.)
All refusing the blessings ofxMessiah's
Kingdom will be destroyed by the Sec
ond Death. Acts Hi, 23; Rev. xx, 14, 15.
While there were places arranged in
the Divine Plan for the angels, and for
humanity, no habitation was perfected
for the Church. This is because the
Church is a New Creation.
Writing of these, St. John says
"The world knoweth ns not. even as it
knew Him not." St. Paul refers to
"this New Creation as the "ministers of
God." All of these demonstrate their
faith and obedience by walking the
"narrow way" of self-sacrifice, "by
faith and not by sight." To all of them
it is declared, "Through much tribula
tion shall ye enter the Kingdom." But
this class have the assurance that "all
things work together for good to
them"; that they "shall not be tempted
above that they are able to bear."
This New Creation is "made a spec
tacle to angels and. men"; flod Is giv
ing the angels a great object lesson in
connection with the development of
this class. He is able to transform
some of the mean things of this World
into polished "jewels." "a royal diadem
in the hands of thy God." Malachi
iii, 17; Isaiah Ixii. 3.
Heavenly Mansion For Church.
: St. Peter tells about the "mansion"
designed for the Church, saying. "God
hath given unto u,s consecrated fol
lowers of Jesus exceeding great and
precious promises, that by these we
might become partakers of the Divine
nature." II Peter 1. 4.
Thus -we see what it means to be
members of the New Creation! "Eye
bath not seen; ear hath not heard; nei
ther have entered the human heart the
things which God bath in reservation
for them that love Him" the choicest
mansion, the highest place! As our
Lord Jesus in His Resurrection ascend
ed "far above angels," so will His
Church, who will share His Resurrec
tion, and be made "like Him." "see
Him as He Is." and share His glory.
' Tbe Master's death -was-for human
ity In general, bnt its merit remained
to be appropriated at the inauguration
of His Kingdom. The whole world
still "lieth In the Wicked One." until
Christ makes satisfaction for tbelr sins
with tbe merit of His sacrifice.
'Meantime, our Lord deals merely
with His Church, as we read: "He ap
peared in the presence of God for us"
Hebrews lx. 24i as the Church's Ad
vocate, to make "satisfaction for oar
tins." The preparation in us and for
ns will be completed when tbe number
is full 144.O00. It is for us to comply
with tbe conditions of our covenant of
sacrifice and to "walk in His steps."
thus to make our "calling and election
sure," as members of the New Creation.
