Within this reality, is couohed an

and smothered out, to give place to the
buge propoi tious ot tbe Komau impos

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:)

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

"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."

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.

their ultimate fate. "Who will repent

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

57:86. "He retained! n it is anger '

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

and lho dead shall be raised incorrupt

shall the Son also himself be subject

Cor. 15 :28. Will the great, good and

thodox protestantism, puffer an hun
