TUB K.KIMaENtt IIF.I.Ia JIVU BY GUILFORD M. CADE, M. V, Concluded. Within this reality, is couohed an other luudunieutul uoetriuo. iitnored and smothered out, to give place to the buge propoi tious ot tbe Komau impos sibiliiy:! he source, aod nature ot the material, Uod applies for the uuoish moutof Biu, instead of the lake ot fire literally (iu an uoknown reului : as Moses failed to tell us of itt seDurate creation; it is tne pure mboite sur roundings ot Uod, as a consuming hre to men in carnality, and wicked actions; making it necessary that every stain ot sin should be burned, purged, and washed out of soul and body to gain an entrance by and through those naming swords, and into the Saviour's body tor immortality : which naraiue swords aro to-day, and will be tor nil coming time, vigilantly guarding tho lite-Kivine essence. iNo lesson could be plainer taught, that men in flesh and blood are incompatible, restless antacooisras to the sublimated auiut- escence of original substance of right eousness with its mlimte surroundings, as at Mount Sioai, when the people in their flesh and blood carnality, could noc even look to the Mount when Je hovah was personally presont and talk ing to them. Even Moses, the meek est man on earth, with all his Duiirv could not behold "His lace," only His ' buck sides, alter his passing him. with his hands covering Moses, Moses whs purified as perfectly as men could be ou earth, capacitating him for the immediate presence ot immortality, lid hold the effect ot his close proximity to God I It surcharged him with the burning, startling terror-arousing ef fulgence if God's surrounding so thoroughly the people could not look upon his luce, or even stay in Ins pres ence, for dread aud torturo ot cousci- eneo, until JMoscswas veiled! Wasall this meaningless? Could this dissimi larity of the natures of God and men be plainer exemplified 1 see clearly, every inspired peunian using this pure-heaven-generated material alone, us an instrument for burning out sin and purging to clcnnliness wicked natures. This state of things between God and men, being a matter of unerring cer tainty, it presses rhe assurance ol per- feet reliability, tho indispensable neces sity of a pcrlcct intercessor, tempered to compatibility and pleasantness of intercourse between God and men, even to get men in sufficient nearness to His burning presence to teach them His will and desieus with them : es pecially their reconciliation to, and in Himself, ' He is surely luruished in "His own Son." begotten through the covenant with Abraham; "in his seed shall all tbe nations, families, kin- Irads, and tongues bo blessed. Gen. 13:18, Chapt, 12:i5. Acts 3:25. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell; and liaving made neace throuch the blood ot his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself: by him, I say, whether they be things iu earth, or things iu heaven." Col. 1:1 'J, -0. "All thing:) aro of God, who hath rconcilcd us to himself by Jesus C'hrjst. and hath civ- en to us the minister of reconciliation.'' 2ud Cor. 5:18. "Who will havo t.11 men to be saved, and to come uuto the knowledge of the truth." "Wo trust in the iivinz God. who i the Saviour of all men, especially ol those that be lieve." 1st Tim. 2:4, chant. 4:10. Tho sense of those truths are too manifest to bo smothered to give pmco to oppo sition. Two specibo clasocs or kinds of reconciliation and salvation are here taught. A special, already attained recooiliation, and salvation. "Hath reconciled u to LimMslf, by Jctis Christ." "Unto ns who are f aved lst Cor. 1:18. He paved other; let! him save himself if Le be Christ.'' Luke 23:3.). These were reconcile J and saved on the earth in their living state, without doubt, the spiritually r?nrreetd in theaced of Abraham. Eph. i: 2t, chupt. 2:fi. The special Ailv.tion ot all true believer on the earth. Tbe second claM were mrely to be reconciled an! paved in tbe fa- tare im Ilia I i m vf ,:nfiAffl r.f 1 1 ! m thing. Aets 5 21.

All these "last days," "time"," and "ends" ot the Jewish ages or dispensations, clear ly discriminated irom the ultimate end: after Christ has reigned ou the earth through his chosen instruments to en tire completion of wisdoiu, and deliv ery of all things to predestinod resti tution in God. lho church ot tbe wilderness, the Israelitish place for the worship of God, was so modeled that men could handle, modify and make earthly use of it, and as a matter of easy comprehension, wicked natures made an instrument of it for self-ng- grandisement; corrupting it; creating the uecessity tor expurgation. 1 saw under the sun the place of Judgment that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was thero. I said in mine heart, God shall judee the righteous and the wick ed; for thero in a time there for every purpose and for every work. Eccl. 6: lb. 17. ihis tulk ot .Solomon ot general course of judgment in time, under the sun, in the earth, sounds in harmonious in tho fs.ee of orthodox teachings. Christ says: "For judgment am come into the world. JNow is the judgment of this world, now shall the princo of this world bo cast out." .John y:.J'J, chapt, Js.dl. Casting whom out, aud Irom what.'' It the im mortal, impossible fragmeutor had never been interpolated for God's teaching, the necessity tor Bucha ques tion would never have arisen. 1 be heldsutanas lightning fall from henv on. liUko W.li. lho scriucs and Pharisees sit iu Moses' seat." Math. 23:2. Moses' scat, was certainly the presiding authority in tins church, place of righteousness, Jewish heaven, earthly jerusalem. There was cer tainly no other tioavcn to men, when all this transpired. Is more necessary to tbo biblo philosopher, to show who the prince was, and the placo he was mode to vacate in order to tho build- D2 "of Jerusalem unto the Messiah, the Prince?"' The church, thus purg ed, made ready for tho '"bridegroom." hat could hinder its perfect spiritual- zaiioo and blending to tbo blecuine Saviour of muukiud; and ull resurrect ed by tho same nope run man power that raised tho dead Saviour,,' thus spirit- ualzinsthe place of righteousness and exalting it at the right hand of God, n heavenly high places in Christ Je sus, with all tho reconciled, stunt, angels, just meu made perfect. This stuto of things contmuit)'' by the in cessnnt judgments of God in tho eanh til all uro pun lied aud mstituted his sublimation, in the process of God's judgments with men, immutably kes tho place ot righteousness. lho Kingdom ot Heaven. Irom the reach and control ot wicked powers Wicked men may corrupt themselves, nc deceivo their lol lowers, but there shall iu no wise enter into it anytbiog tliat deblclu, neither whatsoever work tu aboiuiuatioo, or muketh a lie; but they which aro written in the Lamb's book of lile." Kev. 21 :27. "lie shall not tail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment iu tbe earth; and the isles shall wuit tor his law." lsa. 412:1. "From his right hand went a fiery hiw," Dout. 33:2. With this law in ills right hand, Christ unmis takably set judgment in tbe earth; and woe uuto those who do, and teach wrong, and expect to escape its imme diate iuflictiun during their life-time ou the earth. This law is our exalted schoolmaster, to bring all to Christ. "Thine on wickedness shall correct thee.' Jr, 2:10. "The riphtcoua shall he recompensed in tbccarih much more tho wicked and the tinner. ' J'ror. 11 :31. Wherefore the Iiiw wjs ourschonliiusivr to hring us to L'hrvt." Gal. 3:21. This "fiery hw" follows the sinner iuio phyaical dissolution to i he grave, oo farther. "Tho dead know not anytbinr, neither havo ths'y any more a reward." Keel. 9:5.

This is whut tortures tho heart of evil doers: iu its aDsence tbe culprit's owu fpirits, ucd "Tbo law written iu their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts tho moaiiwhilo accusiug or else enousing one another.

"Who will repent himself for bis servants, when be sceth that their power ia gone, and thero is none shut up, or left. And he will say, where are their Gods, their rook iu whom they trusted; see now iliac 1, even I, am he, and there ia no God with me; I kill, and I make alive; I wound and I heal: neither is there any that oan deliver out ot my band'" Deut. 32 :3G, 37, 39, 40. There is. without doubt, a geueral future "re conciliation," "salvation," "restitution ot all things," spoken of by all tho prophets', and coufirmcd by . 1 F the Tes tament writers. "For tho 1 ord will not cast off f orevei; though he cause grief, yet will he havo coinpcHsion,"- Lam. 3:31. "1 will not cor tend for ever, neither will I le ii!vv- wroth, lest the spirits shall fail tfi mo and the soul which I have maile." Is. 57:86. "He retained! n it is anger ' forever, because he delip'.io 1: in mer cy." Micah 7:18. Her is no array of prophetio declaration!), ly recog nized inspired penmen, k.o plain for quibbling, or excuse for nn :il .empt to explain away; yet at iK'ully conflict with tho fundamental divine philoso- phy, or superstition c' the Eoman school and her children. What senso has all this, and a mult plioity more, of an exact nature throughout God's word, all tending or drifting in this precise channel and vein of reasoning if we permit this fragmenting gene rator ot discord to clash and mistily all? Who is the deceiver; Christ, who says: "For judgment I am come into the world." "Now is the judgment of this woi-ld," or tho inventor of the great immortal beast of Roniuti chi canery? This plain teaching of Christ, that he camo for, and was then judg ing tho world, and is to-day judging tho earth, aro forced to give placo to the weakening deception ull at tho expense ot Christ's plainest teachings, aud His veracity. Will the good meaning, and great hearts of orthodox, protestantism rise to the diguity of :t wise error-cxpurging explanation? And will lho thinking, interested world re read their bibles, and corry theso truths with them, compare notes dili gently and prnyerful'y? "For ho must reign till bo hath put all enemies un der his feet- The last enemy that shall bo destroyed is death." Then will Lo finished the process of reconciliation and restitution, commenced by Christ at his resurrection; continuing lii.t times of visitation for judgment, con demning tho wicked and thrusting them from every ppirituul privilege and oversight by his angels for their com fort; and rewarding his saints with uli spiritual blessings and supervision for their welfare: until tho last spirit, bod'' and soul shall be restituted, after euol' individual chango of body and soul for we must nil bo changed after death: even in the face of stoiniinc denial. "As iu Adam all die, even in Christ shall all be made alive." 1st Cor. 15 :22. Tbe same all through out tho chapter: "Behold I show you a ministery; We shall not all sleep, but. wo ahall be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the lat trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and lho dead shall be raised incorrupt ible, and wc shull bo changed; For the corrigible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immor tality" verses 51, 52, 53. ,' When all thiDgs shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all." let Cor. 15 :28. Will the great, good and pure hearts who shape and enforce or thodox protestantism, puffer an hun blo. reverential refpectcr of God'a chosen instruments ou earth, to thrust before them these bouctit findings against their tf-rcbiups, for mature, olemn criticism?
