Bk iw.n, Taator of the M. E. Church. After an app:opri t-i reception of the welcnne by the Lodge lie* A.W. Me Kinney, preached the following EASTER SERMOV Teit, 1 Coriutheaus Chapter 15—V 1#. ••It in (hie life only we have hope in Christ we are iu^all men most miserable.’’ It is custom ou occasions like tbit to eulogize the Order giviug.ite history set ting tortb its piinciplee, accomplishment* Ac. Such a course is day wonld be aoth iug new. 1 shall therefore depart from the cus tom, and speak of tbe occasion wbiob brings us together, viz; Eaa.er Easter,in its modern sense is another term for resurrect ion. It has ever been tbe disposition of man kind to mark great events. Thus the pat riarchs of the Old Testaaieut marked the places where good via ted them. Jacob when sleeping under the open tky dreamed that, a ladder reached from earth to heaves. And whan he awoke he ■at up a stone e»yiug‘*5arely God is iu this place and I know it not." Abmham, when about to offer up his son Isaac was deliv ered hy the interposition.of God. And be called that place Jehovah Jireh the Lord will provide. After ell it is the presence of God that makes oue place more sacred than another. I care nothing about your fres coed walls, windows and costly pews.Show me where God manifest himself to his peo pla whether that be palaco or prison tbe »eme is holy ground. But there are some things which God ha* uotsnff -red man to mark. Moses the great i Major General, Lawgiver, prophet, prie-t | and king of Israel served his day and gen- ! eration, but when he must die God hid his grave from the Israelites. Why ? Doubt less to k-ep them fr in deifying and wor shipping the creature more than the cre ator. Just this thing men are likely torts. The human soul craves a visible object of worship. But God destroys these that he may lead us out uuto the unknown up into himself. But as for this occasion—the resurrect ion, the eternal deems it of such vast im port that he has not trusted to mau simp ly but has marked it himself. I will read you tbe lris'ory th reof and I show you God's mark oa the snbjeet ofI Kesurrection. The Isralitea were con ' maaded to leave Egypt on the fourteenth dry of the month, Abib. They were com manded to preprepere a feast, and partake of it b fore departing. This feast w« to | be obsrrved annually as long as their na tion lived, (bat it might be Lauded down to the remotest generation. Now, it was on the same eocasiou that Christ on that memorable night be fore his death, partook of the Passover and instituted the Lord's Sapper. Afterwards. He was betrayed by His foes, drawn before the rulers, want through a mock trial, | etndsnined, crucified, dead, and buried Now, the Sariptures explicitly state, that on the third uorniug, He arose from the grave. Thus, God baa indelibly matk ed the Rasnrrection as a historical to And how appropriate it the time ! How beautiful! It seems to me that God has exerted His oounipobB'e to fix it at a tiara when ail uature should vie with tba scripture* in teaching men the great les son of immortality. At this time when the voice of turtle, whippoorwill and j mocking-bird join to tba returning spring. At this time, when our earth swings back under the sun's directer r*y. At this time, when showers from above come down and water the earth, aud wLeu the earth heave* from below and sends up her strength. ' At this time, when men rash ont of their' houses, throw off their winter garments and dress themselves in gay Attire. At this time, when the earth herself put* ou a carpet of green trees bad, roses bloom and all th&air is Billed with perfume. At such a time we are called upon to consider the eubject of our resurrection. At this time too we are prepared for this occasion from another stand pei,.t. As I look over this vast audieuce. I see f .oe* whose cheek* are scarcely dry from the tears which death made you weep. The signs of mourning are tb ok among you. This tells tne tbs' death has invaded your iautilv circles, and borne some jewel from yonr bearth-ctouv. j ■lust there perched ou your banners I see red, white and blue, nut the sign of death j appears there also, orape ou your banners I crape ou your doors 7 and yon are clad iu mourning With these signs ot death all J around, how eucbautiug to think of a r s- j itrrection day. Conte friends and relations lets join hearts and bauds The voice of the turtle i* heard in our laud Lets all wa!k together and follow th* sound A >d march to the place where Redemption is found. The place is iu Jesus to him if you'll go Ton'll Bud there re leuipti >u from sin aud from woe. It has beau affirmed by time tbit tha Old Testament fathers only looked for a tranaitiory promise and the Old Test ament Scripture-. Hut every book,and al most every peg* teem with teatimouy that they lived in hope of a glorious irntnor taliity. A few instances. When the tiu beieiving saduceee* came to Christ,with the case of the woaauan who had seven hus bands. Eie reply to them was : ‘Ye do ere not knowing the scriptures" tor that the dead was raised up even Moses was showed st the burning bush, when God proclaimed himself as the God of Abraham, and of Isaac and of Jacob. He is not a God of the dead but of the living. Turn ing to the chronology we find that these fathers had been dead about three hun dred years. Hut Gol speaking of them rues net the past but the present tense -1 am the God of Abraham, and of Isaac and of Jacob, as much aa to say, through dead for three hundred years they still live in my preeeace- onto God there are no dead. Another striking instance is that found in Job. Jo. Bereaved effected, ai d re proached be piues away at the gates of beam, Hie friends tell him to give up all hope, that he will never more see good that death ends all, even bis wife said to hiui, curse God and die. Hut in the strength of his faith rising superior to doubt he ex claims : "O, that my words were now written ! O, that they were printed in a book ! That they were graven w.tban iro i pen and lead in the rock forover ! for I know that my redeemer livuth and that be shall stand at the Utter day upon the the earth, and though aad attar worms destroy this body yet in any flesh shall I see God.Why did he want his words engraven in atone? Surely that coming generations till the end of time might know tbet he believed in a resurrection. Isaiah prophesied for Israel during tl e:r captivity. It was very natural for them in this condition to become di-coaraged, to cry out all hope is goue we will never more aee good Rut Uriah banishes their des pair with the words ! Thy dead men st all hve, together with my dead body shall they irise." So far wae he from looking for a transit) ry promise that he preached itu mortallity for the dead. But tbe hope of our Kesurr.-ction depend* upon that ot Ctari-t. ff Chri-t l-e not rissa then ia our preaching rain, our faith is al ao rain and we are yet in our sirs. (Here showed that the Reearrecton of Christ rents upon testimony, such as would he valid in auy court of law. i Conclusion. Addratoing > y sell to you brothers ami sisters of the Immaculate fraternity, there are many things praise worthy of your noble order a few of which I will mention; Principle is the ouly thing worth living for or worth dying for. The chief corner stone of Iuimaculatieiu ia belief in tlia ex atence of God, I believe Ibis is the first requisite of every perttou who seeks nuion with your order |I exhort you to a‘and by this principle, for there are plen'y of rneu in this country who do uot believe, or pro feaa to believe in the existence < f God. I see also that it is vour custom annually to o iserva Easter Service, thus proclaiming to tbe world that you believe in a resurrection in immortallity, iu a liie beyond the grave. Time would fail me to apeak of your many virtues such as fidelity love and charity? virtues witnont which no individual eau be n >ble, no home cju be happy. Without the virtuas no organization can long etis The statement that ons hundred and fif ty thousand dollars since the organix«tion ; of your society has been expended in aiding lb a beretved families of deceased members is sutticent testimony of the ability of the 1 order to keep its pledge. Go pu with your good work, live bv ym r principle*, uud may God help yon to so live that like Job your faith, many he en t graveu iu stones, that generations following many read your laith aud not be ashamed. M*y God enable yon to so live too, that when others shill take your place and you stand before the Judgement seat of Christ you may neitb-r be ashamed of yonr faith or practice. --—-a «•» ----- ol HIi W ounds.
