VTAriiii(iTo, I). C In n unique way the
lienvuuly world I.h dleBourneil upon by Dr.
TalmiiKu In thit BHnnoii umlnr the figure of
I home; text, John xlv., 'i, "In My Father's
louse are many room."
Here Is a bottle of medicine that Is a
urn oil. The dlnolples wore and, and
Ohrlst offered heaven us nn altnrntlve, a
tlmiilnnt ami a tonic. He shows them
.hut thnlr sorrows are only a dark back
ground of n brlitht picture of comlne
:llclty. He lets them know that, though
low they live on the lowland, they shall
yet have o house on the upland. Nearly
ill tho Dlble descriptions of heaven mny be
llRitrntlve. I am not ponltlve that In all
'leaven there Is a literal crown or burp or
pearly gate or throne or chariot. They
nay be only Fe! to Illustrate the glories
Jf the place, but how well they d 6 k" The
fuvorlte symbol by which the Dlble pre
lents celestial happiness Is a house. Paul,
who never owned a house, although be
hired one for two years In Italy, speaks of
heaven as a "house not made with hinds,"
hihI Christ in our text, the translation of
which is a little olinngod, to as to give the
moro accurate meaulns, aays: "In Jly
Father's hou io aro inuiiy rooms."
This divinely nuthorlxod compurlsou of
heaven to a great homestead ol large an
commoilatlotis I propose co carry out. Ia
some healthy neighborhood a man builds
a very commodious haliiiatlon. He must
have room for nil his children. The rooms
coma to bo culled after the dllTnrent mem
bers of the tnmllv. That Is mother's room,
that Isdeorirc's room, that Is Henry's room,
thnt is Flora's room, that is Mary's room,
und the bouse Is all occupied. JHit time
goes by, mid the sous no out Into the
world and build thulr own homes, und the
daughter are married or havo talents
ououith hlnitly to go out and do a good
work in tho world. Arter a while the
father and mother are almost alone in the
big hon, und, seated by the evening
tuud, tlioy say, "Well, our family 1 no
Inrger now than when wo started together
forty years ago." But time goes still
further by, and somo of the children are
unfortunate and return to the old home
stead to live, and the grandchildren come
with them and perhaps Kroat-grau dchll
dren, and nguin the house is full.
Millennia uko (lod built on the. hills of
liuaveu a great liomuilad tor a family In
numerable, j ot to be. At llrst He lived alone
In that great houso, but nlier awhile It
was occupied by a very large family, cher
ubic, semplilu, nngeilc. The eternities
passed on, aud many of the Inhabitants
became wayward and lert, never to return,
und many of the apartments were vacant.
I refer to tho fallen unguis. Now these
apartments are filling upngain. Tnerenre
arrival at the old homestead of Ood'l
children every day, und the day will come
when there will be no uuocoupied room In
all tho house.
As you and I expect to enter It and make
there eternal residence, I thouirlit you
would like to got somo more particulars
about the many roomed homestead. "In
my Father's bouse are ninny rooms." You
see, the place is to be apoortloued off into
apartments. Wo shall lo've all who una ia
heaven, but there are some very good peo
ple whom we would not want to live with
In the same room. They may be better
than we are, but they are of a divergent
temperament. We would like to meet with
them on the golden streets aud worship
with them In the temple and walk with
them on the river banks, but I am glad to
say that we shall live lu different apart
ments. "In ray Father's bouse aro many
rooms." You see, heaven will be so large
that If one wants an entire room to himself
or herself it can be afforded.
An Ingenious statistician, taking the
statement made in ltevelatlou, twenty-first
chapter, that the heavenly Jerusalem was
measured aud found to be 12,000 furlongs
and that the lengthaud heightand breadth
of it are equal, says that would make
heaven in size HI, sextilllon 08H quintilliou
cubio feet, ami then, reserving a certain
portion for tho court of heaven and the
streets aud estimating that the world may
lust a hundred thousand years, he ciphers
out that there are over 8,000,000,000,001)
rooms, each room teventeen feut long, six
teun feet wide, fifteen feet high. But 1 have
no faith in the accuracy of that calcula
tion. He makes the rooms too small. From
all I can read the rooms will be palatial,
und those who havo not hud enough room
lu this world will have plenty of room at
the last. I should not wonder If, Instead
of the room that the statistician ciphered
out as only seventeen feet by sixteuu, It
should be largor than nnvof the rooms at
Berlin, Ht. James or Winter paluco. "Iu
lay Father's house are muny rooms."
'!arrylug out still further tho symbolism
of the text, let us jolu hands and go up to
tills majestic homestead ami see for our
selves. As we ascend the golden stops au
Invisible guurdsranu swings open the front
door, and we are ushered to the right Into
the reception room of the old homestead.'
That is the place where we first meet the
welcome of heaven. There must be u pluce
where the departed spirit enters and a
place in which It confronts the Inhabitants
celestial. The reception room of the new
ly arrived from this world what scenes it;
must have witnessed since the llrst guest
arrived, the victim of the llrst fratricide,
pious Abel! lu thut room Christ lovingly
greets all newcomers. He redeemed them,
and He bus the right to tho llrst embrace on
arrival. Wbut a minute when the asceuded
spirit llrst sees the Lordl Better thuu all
we ever real about Hliu or talked about
Him or sang about Hliu In nil the churches
and through all our earthly lifetime will
it be. Just for one second to see Him.
The most rapturous Idea we ever bud of
Him ou sacramental days or at tho height
of some grunt revival or under the uplifted
baton of an oratorio Is a bankruptcy of
iiiuiiKiii compared Willi tile llrst Hiisli of
His uppeurauue iu that reception room, At
that moment wheu you confront each
other, Christ looking upon you and you
looking upon Christ, there will be nn ec
statlo thrill and surging of emotion that
beggar all desorlptlou. Look! They need
no Introduction. Long ago Christ ohose
that repentant sinner, and that repentant
sinner chose Christ. Mightiest momott of
an Immortal history the first kiss of
heaven! Jesus and the soul! Thosouland
Hut now Into that reception room pour
the glorilled kinsfolk, ououirh of earthly
retention to lot you kuow them, but with
out their wouudi or their sicknesses or
their troubles. Bee what heaven hu done
for them so radiant, so glueriil, so
truiispostliiKly lovely! They call you by
name. They greet you with an ardor pro
portioned to the anguish of your parting
and the length of your separation.
Futherl Mother! There is vour. uhild.
Klstersl Brothers! Friends! I wish you
Joy. For years apart, toirether uriiIu in
thu reception room of the old bomostead.
You see, they will kuow you are oomiug.
'i'hure are so many immortals filling all the
spaces between here aud heaven that news
like thut flies like ilghtutug. They will be
there In au Instant. Though they were in
some other world on orraud from (iod, a
signal would be thrown that would
fntoh them. Though you might at first
foel dazed and overawed at their super
nal splendor, all that feeling will be
gone at their llrst touch of heavenly
salutation, and wo will say: "Oil. my lost
boy!" "Oh, my lost oompanloul" "Oh,
my lost friend! Are wo here together!"
What scenes In that reception room of tho
old homestead have been wltuessedl There

pell.ed, and multitudes without number
who, ones so weary aud so sad, parted on
earth, but gloriously met in beaveu. Among
ull the rooms of that house there Is no oue
that more enraptures my soul thuu thut
reception room. "Ia my Father's nousu
ars many rooms."
Another room la our Father's house Is
the throae room. We belong to the royal
family. The blood of King Jesus flows in
our veins, so we have a right to enter the
throne room. It Is uo easy thing on earth
to get through even the outside door of n
king's residence. During the Frunoo-Oer-mau
war, one eventide la the summer of
law, 1 stood studying tnn exquisite snulp
turlug of the gste of the Tullerles Paris.
Lost in admiration of the wonderful art of

suspicion. Lowering my eyes to the crowds
of people, I found myself being closely In

from my complexion, Judged mo to b a Ger
man and thnt for some belligerent purpose
I might be examining the gates of the pal
ace. My explanatlou In very poor French
did not sntisfy them, and they followed me
long distances until I reached my hotel
nnd were not satisfied until from my land
lord they found that 1 was only nn Inoffen

aces are carefully guarded, and If so, how
much moro the thronerooint A dazzling
place is it for mirrors and nil costly art.
No one who ever saw the throneroom of

the throneroom of onr Father's bouse
hath a glory eclipsing all the throne

Fhiinr's throun is a throue of graco, a

snd cowering beforo"it, iVr.?r Father says
we may vet one day come up and Mt pn It
beside illm. "To him that over.'omefii
will I grant to alt with Me In My throne."
You see, we are princes nud princesses.
Perhaps now we move about Incognito, as

In the dress of a peasant woman seeking
the prophet for her child's euro, but it
will be found out after a while who we are
when we get Into tho throneroom. Aye,
we need not wnlt until then. We may by
prayer nnd song aud spiritual uplifting
this moment enter the throneroom. O
King, live forever! We touch the scepter
und prostrate ourselves at Thy fee:.
Another roo-u In onr Father's house I
the music room. Ht. John and other Bible
writers talk so much about thomusleol
heaven that there must be music there,
perhaps not such as on earth was thrum,
med from trembling string or evoked by
touoh of Ivory key; bat. It not that, then
something better. There are so many
Christian harpists and Christian composers
and Christian organists and Christian bym
nologists thnt have gouo up from earth,
there must be for thorn some place of es
pedal delectation, Hhall we have music
in this world of discords nnd no music in
the land of complete linrmouy?
In that music room of our lather's house
you will some day meet the old masters,
Mozart nnd Handel and Mendelssohn and
Beethoven and Doddridge, whose sacred
poetry was as remarkable as his sacred
prose, nnd James Montgomery nnd William
Cowper, at last got rid of his spiritual mul
ancholy, nnd Bishop Holier, who sang ol
"Oreenlnid's Icy mountains and India's
coral strand," and Dr. Unfiles, wno wrote
of "High in yonder realms of light," nnd
Isnno Watts, who weut to visit Hir Thomas
Abneyand wife for a week, but proved
himself so agreeable a guest that fiey
made him stay thirty-six years, and side
by side Augustus Toplady, who has got
over his dislike for Methodists, and
Charles Wesley freed from his dislike fot
Caivlnists, nnd Oeorge W. Bethune, as
sweet as a songmaker as he was great
as a preacher and the author of "The
Village Hymns," and many who wrot
lu verse or song. In church or by eventide
cradle, and many who wero passionately
fond of music, hut could make none them
selves, thu poorest sluger there mare than
any earthly prima donna and the poorest
pln-ers;there more than any earthly Ootl
schalk. Oh, thnt music room, the head
quarters of cadence and rhythm, sym
phony and chant, psalm and nntlphon!
May we bo there some hour when Haydn
elts at the keys of oue of his own oratorios,
and David the psalmist flugers the harp,
nud Mirinm of tho Bed sea banks chips thu
cymbals, nnd Gabriel putt bis lips to the
trumpet nnd the four and twenty olden
chant, and Llud aud Pnrepa render mutch
less duet lu tho music room of the old
heavenly bomestend! "In ray Futuer's
house are mnny rooms."
Another room iu our Father's house will
oa the family room. It may correspond
somewhat with the family room on earth,
At morning and evening, you know, that
Is the place we now meet. Though uverv
member of the household have a separate
room, in me inmiiy room tuny all gather,
and Joys nnd sorrows und experiences ol
ill styles aro there rehearsed. Hacreil room
In all our dwellings, whether It be luxuri
ous with ottomans aud divans aud book!
In Russian lids standing In mahogany case
or there be only a few plain chairs aud n
cradle. Ho the family room ou high will
be the place where the kinsfolk assem
ble and talk over the family expert
ences of earth, the weddings, the
births, the burials, the festal days of
Christmas and Thanksgiving reuulou.
Will the children departed remain chil
dren there? Will the aged remain aged
there? Oh, no! Everything Is per
fect there. Thecbildwlli go n head to glori

to glorified maturity. The rising sua ol
the one will rise to meridian, aud the
descending sun of the other will return to
meridian. However inuoh we love out
children on earth, we would consider It u
domestic disaster if they staid children,
and so we rejoice nt their growth here
And when we meet In the family room ol
