The justice of (Jod in the trials of men.
This touches one of (ho problems of
human life. Truly we are "hedged in by
inyttci ies," and some of the darkest hours
of our beinjj; have been those where we
have cowered under seme crushing ex
perience vainly endeavoring to reconcile
our situation w ith tlio fact of a loving
(iod. It came of a sudden when wc knew
not what we were or what we could
bear, and we were broken down from
one position to a lower one until there
wag no Mrength of heart left. I!ut where
such ha been the cac, it was from the
f.iel that we knew not the truth of (Jod

Sonirthing like th.'.e chuiiiIIcmIioiis be
come iii'ce.Mirv fiotu tho nature of the ;
I mind ami the character of lis habits. We
' do lo day w Imi w e tlid yesterday, and
llnie Is mi Utile of our life involved that
we .iiou allow our energies wholly to
final iu the narrow chnnuel. We become
i Miipid, spiritually a. well as physically,
rw In n for a peiiod we allow our.elves
j thus simply lo drift. It is soon drift
I wood, however valuable the materia'.
w hen the descent begun. We need some
; thing lo make us struggle something to
bring out our capabilities. Il it is lo be
of real service lo us, it must call forth all
our reserve and slir up us yet unrealized
energies. And he who would perforin
what niu.t ever be esteemed the noblest
work duly to bis Creator will find
things lo bo done for which he bus no
adequate slrenglh. He has gone, how
ever, if h-j makes the attempt where there
is no relreul, God has led him. lie would
return if he could, but the Kternal know
ing his weakness has placed Iu the rear
I lie scythe chariots and tho leaping spears
of (lie world's Pharaohs.
Hut before limn is lilted to any degree
in the performance of diviuo work, he
must pass a corresponding trial. lie is
never raised without the application of
the severe tests; nor is he ever condemn
ed without patient reproof. He must be
tried or warned as the case may be trial
or warning goes with him through the
sea or beneath the waves. Thia U not
let me urge to satisfy the Eternal Mind.
He sees before trial, and His afllrmation
must precede the warning given. An ap
pearance and hearing are not cfscutlal to
the justice of the Courts Above. It is
altogether proceeding for the soul ilscll
and the entire world. It is, Indeed, a
striking ('eat era in God'a adminlstrAtive
work that the soul should feel tho justice
of the divine judgments in Ids special in
stance ami that the world may apprehend
something of the ways of Infinite Wis
dom. If (Jod should seem to be partial ;
If the passion of man could once get an
excuse from such source, would he not
he quick to plunge Into all excess?
There was such a judgment hour by
the Ited Sea banks. Tho parties were
brought into that unusual situation which
showed the ruling motive of their life.
The centuries hvo looked on the scene
and have not questioned the fact. The
clear discriminating light which shone
upon them there enabled not only the
parties to see themselves but the world
also has seen and rendered its estimates.
We can perceive the Kgyptians' hatred
thus sell-revealed. His hostile prepara
tions are complete! ho stands above fa
tigue in the full pride and lust of war.
His victims, a defenceless multitude, arc
held in llie clutches of the sea, I he desert
the mountains and bis own impatient
host. What is it that makes l.im desper
ate? Man cannot destroy another with
out some tearful motive. hat is it thai
makes him exanlt in Ihe prospect of a
speedy slaughter? He, indeed, reluins a
sense of right and wrong. I'y the con
ditions of his own being, he can fully
know the enormity of his ,',oiiti-mplalrd
deed. Hut he is driven by some deadly
purpose. We know that it cannot be re
venue for w rongs borne. He ha" never
snllered by tho Israelites' hand, but bus
been fed bv it. The real motive he can
not evade it is a mortal hatred from a
desperate fear of rivalry! We have
seen it in his history, and in his bearing;
this it is haired, violent, persistent, but
wholly without caue, without provoca
tion, without excuse! This was the
ptiaus' crime. And it was as crimi
nal a if his intended deed were perpe

(rial. Its breath w as so like the tongue
f flume. It limy be that only the heart
of Moses was unmoved as thev avv them-
selves within the clnti ln-s of tho sea, the
desert, the mountain and the chariots of
l'liaraoh. We apeak no word of blame.
Man may be strong when ha sees himself
in danger; lie can be resolute when he
alone is eal.'ei! to sutler; and he can sink

is there one w ho has not yet learned
what will break the stoutest heart? Some
time perchance a heavy hand will be laid
on his own household then will he
know ! There the Israelites. What could
they do? The trial hour came upon
them with the crushing force of storms
and I ho serpent tongue of lire. What
could Ibey do? They lilted up their faces
white with the awful trial toward the
heavens; there they stood with pain
lighted eyes looking above humanity for
help! In the tearfulness of the moment,
we can clearly discern Ihe spirit of the
man. There, while the cloud which had
led I he in to the sea rises daz7.Iingly float
ing like an angel's form, and shut down
between the pursued fugitives, and their
pursuing foe iu the light of which both
are seen, tell me friends, if you will,
whether the trial hour has not indicated
Itself in the threatening ardor of the
Kgyptians and also iu (he upturned brow
ol the Israelites? It is, indeed, certain
that when God touches man ho must re
spond, not in jests, evasions or falsehoods
but ho will answer according to tho in
ner structure of his lile and show what is
the true basis to apprehend the dealings
of tho Infinite Judge 1
Fourth Our thought compels an ad
vnuce and an end. Our line of movement
has led us to contemplate the presence of
God in human complications to tlie point
that it signifies a trial-scene of souls. We
come to a still more emphatic manifes
tation of the Divine interference. Those
upturned faces were quickly bathed with
tlio Sight Ineffible, while tho intense
Egyptian found one stronger than his
wrath. We look closely to tbo portrayal.
The connection betwecu the soul of the
multitude and the Almighty was fastened
in tho link of faith. It is a grand sight to
turn even from the hushed multitude to
Moses as his mystic rod was lifted while
the winds came down aud the waves rol
led back. The surging of the masses
heaved also like the tremulous wave as
there through tlie depths rose a pathway
of deliverance. Was it not a strong,
proud slep that they, a rescued people,
planted on tho farther shore while tho sea
drank the life of their foes? Alas, I'lrn
raoh, ihe pathway of the just is not for
your feet, or vour chariot wheels, The
waves which were Israel's friends will be
mercile.s on you. All the creation of
God, even your own consciences, must
conspire to execute your icnlence ol gum.
There was something tragic, in that de
struction as well as mysterious Iu the de
liverance. Material objects became the
minister of justice. The wave rescued,
and the wave diowned. What shall we
say then? There was an intimacy in re
lationship which brought the hatred that
would destroy but Ihat drove lo Its own
ruin; there was also the same phase of
justice in the deli venture aud in the de
struction. How closely related and yet
how far apart! A word divides, a sen
tence separates, a cloud Intervenes, and
quickly Ihe one rejoices in an opening
liberty, while the other floats a corpse by
the shore! Nor is tho full weight of the
Avenging Hand fully realized at this
point of the scene. We must more than
look for it in externals. We perceive
Ihat Ihe Egyptian's sense of right and
wrong, the consciousness of the enormity
of his intended ai t against Israel, was
i deadened by the very passion that he in-
j bulged ; but tlie moment or reueclion

w here the song swept over the water
'Sing ye lo the IauiI, for He bath tri
umphed gloriously; llie horse and hi

was something more than personal deliv
erance which inspired the song. The
hours bad been Jears iu their lives. They
had been lilted iu soul, for the ordeal had
been tearful. They had come nearer to
the IHvlne than any eoliscioua approach
could mark. And as they filled the sub
lime moment, how whs the sense of .lus
t'ce iuleusified iu their apprehension. It
was not delight in the disaster of a foe,
but it Was that stein rest in Ihe fact that
the divine Justice was not a fancy merely
since il stood forth iu such awful grand
eur before tho world.
Our lives, brethren, are moulded more
lliau we think by these significant hour.
Wo may deem that God bud sonic special
utcrposiiioua for Israel which have not
been shared by the ages since. Hut we
greatly err. We fully believe iu His Im
partiality Btid uuchangcableues. Ho has
proved Himself tho Elertnd God in every
circutn. lance and situation pertaining to
human a (fairs. There are Kcd sens all
along the lino of our movement. If wo
have the qualities of the Israelite purity
of purpose, devotion to duty, and re
liance on God we shall sometimes find
ourselves iu similar passe of trial and
shall see a like Just i Ileal ion of the Over
ruling Hand. It tnuy be, thai we shall
fail sternly to stand by the waves until
they divide; it is possible that instead of
the supplicating look heavenward, wc
may fly lo the coverts. Our lives must
then be iu confusion aud we shall not
bring ourselves to the nobler sacraflce of
God. We have then, it may be, purity ol
heart and devotion to duty, but wo luck
a firm reliance on God. Better it is true
to be thus than to share tlie malice
of those who persecute. Better bo the
smallest Isrulite than the prince of I'lia
raoh's host. Hut it is this assurance, this
faith iu the Justice of God which add
tha complement to character aud bids us
stand until the waves divide und the
pathway of the just appeal.
