Sermon by
Pastor Brooklyn
Lynn Mass August 14 Pn < to
Russell of Brooklyn Tabernacle spot <
here twice today to large and atteu
Ove audiences We report one of In
discourses from the above He said In
My text Is one of the strongest o1
those which once we erroneousij mis
understood to teach the eternal tor
ment of the nonelect Coming to tin
text with our minds filled with the
wrong impressions respecting tb <
character of the Almighty Creator and
respecting his purposes toward hu
manlty It Is easy for us to rnlsunder
stand the words of St Jude So deep
ly were the erroneous thoughts ira
pressed upon our minds from child
hood that Irrational though lbey were
we considered them fundamental the
ology In like manner we wrested to
our own confusion and injury man
Scriptures reading into them whw
they do not say and Ignoring what
they do say As for instance tin
messages of Holy Writ to the effvf
that all the wicked will God destroy
that the wages of sin is death tha
the soul that slnneth It shall die
that there is no eternal life out of
Christ All these and others we warp
ed and twisted away from their beai
tlful and simple teaching and mad
out of them doctrines of devils wit
which we alarmed ourselves and Un
committed to our instruction
We thank God that gradual tb
eyes of our understanding are upon
lng to discern the great Truth that V
testing of the Church in the present
Age andThe testing of the world a
large in the coming Age will be as ii
worthiness for eternal life or wort In
ness of eternl death everlasting d
struction the Second Death from
which there will be no redemption no
resurrection no recovery As St Peter
declares Those who enter into it will
be like brute beasts made to be taken
and destroyed annihilated
Sodoms Guilt and Punishment
Sodom and surrounding cities were
profligate and licentious to the extreme
and Divine Justice decreed that their
course must not continue but that
they should be made an example of
Messon tp j > lherso > f the Divine dis
pleasure against all such licentious
ness Accordingly we read that tire
and brimstone were rained from
heaven to the utter destruction of those
cities the place of which is now mark
ed by the Dead Sea The Sodomite
were obliterated and only their name
and history have come down to ns
Their utter destruction Uy eternal tire
or heavenly lire rained upon them was
a complete destruction Their experi
ence pictures forth the utter destruc
tion of all whom God will finally re
ject as unworthy of eternal lif Not
that fire and brimstone would he rain
ed upon all but that utter destruction
will come upon all disapproved liy >
Almighty Who thinks that St Tut
meant that the tire that destroyed the
Sodomites was an eternal one Who
ever thinks that it is still burning as a
literal blaze should take a look at the
picture of tbe Dead Sea and note that
there are no fires there The I bought
is that the fire which is a symbol of
destruction did its work thoroughly
completely leaving not a vestige or
these condemned to destruction
The Sodomites all went to hell 1 >
the Bible hellto the state of death
But they did not go to the bell whli i
was manufactured by our forefathers
during the dark ages a hell of eteriai
torture We have Bible testimony on
the subject which we will produce
They are unconscious now like the re
malnder of the dead waiting for ili
resurrection And the resurrection op
portunity will come to thein as well
as to all the remainder of Adams
race because they us well as all nth
ers are redemed by the precious blood
of Christ by the sacrifice which In
finished at Calvary This is not w > c
ulatlve We have the words of I In
Master himself on the subject I et u
take our Information our wisdom from
the proper quarter Then our doubt
and fears will speedily liee a waj
Not a Second Chance
We will produce the Bible testimony
showing that the Sodomites will be re
leased and come forth during tin me
diato nai reign of Messiah > o enjo a
share of the blessings then to be pour
ed out upon Isruel and the world and
to have an opportunity of coming into
harmony with God and gaining eterna
life But we know that straiginwa
somebody will say No Pastor Russell
that would be ii second chance an <
God has nowhere promised it second
chance to any Furthermore it woiiil
be belittlelng to the Divine Govern
ment to suppose that God after giving
one fair trial to a man and reaching a
decision would conclude to give him
another trial as though Divine Justice
were unable to determine the worthl
ness or unworthiness of the individual
for eternal life in one trial or testing
We fully agree with this sentiment
hut call attention to the fact that the
Sodomites did not enjoy one trial foi
Jlfe They and ail mnnkind were
born In aln shapen in Iniquity in sin
did their mothers conceive them
0 0 0
The Vengeance j
of Eternal Fire j
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah
and the cities about them are set j
forth for an example suffering the
vengeance of eternal fire Jude 7
o oO
They were born under the sentence
Dying thou shalt die Neithei thii
nor anyone else therefore could h
placed upon trial for a future life eve
lasting or death everlasting until te
leased from the original sentence >
death under which all were born And
no release from that death sentence
was granted to anybody until the Re
deemer came and died the Just for
the unjust that as by a man cam
death by a man also might come the
resurrection ofthe dead
Only those therefore who have been
born since Jesus day could be released
from the original penalty or could be
placed on trial for life or death eter
nal Only the Church therefore ac
cepts this proposition To this agrees
the words of the Apostle If tee sin
wilfully after that we have come to a
knowledge of the Truth there remain
eth no more sacrifice for sin such bav
ing enjoyed and misused their share
of the original sacrifice nothing but
a fearful looking forward to of judg
ment sentence and fiery Indignation
which will devour the adversaries of
j God in the Second Death Hebrews x
26 The Sodomites therefore did not
I enjoy any chance of eternal life They
i knew not the only name given under
heaven or amongst men whereby we
must be saved Not only so but the
majority of mankind since Jesus day
have never heard the GospeT in the
true sense of the word hearing They
have never understoou never appre
ciated it fully rightly
Mors Tolerable For Sodomites
It may astonish some to know that
Jesus speaking of the judgment or
trial of the world during the coming
age during his Mediatorial Kingdom
declared that that trial would be less
severe upon the Sodomites than upon
some of those people to whom he
j preached who would also have a
share in the opportunities of that
i great epoch an opportunity with the
1 Sodomites of reconciliation to God
and the attainment of eternal life
His words were Woe unto you Cho
I razzin and Bethsalda for if tbe mighty
works which have been done in you
j had been done In Sodom and Gomor
rah they would have repented long
ago In sackcloth and ashes Therefore
I say unto you It shall be more to
erable for Tyre and Sidon in the da
of judgment the worlds trial time
the Millennium than for you Mat
thew 11 22 23 What more could we
ask upon this subject What highei
authority could be Invoked than the
Great Judge himself
It will not do to say that Jesus did
not refer to tbe same licentious soil
omltes mentioned by St Jude tu our
text It will not do to suy that Jesus
meant some Sodomites living In bis
day because there were none Tin
Master distinctly tells us that the
same day that Lot went out of Sodom
i It rained down fire and brimstone from
heaven and destroyed them all luKe
xvll 29 When our Lord declares
that it shall be more tolerable fo
Sodom In the day of judgment than
for Capernaum and the other cities
In which he preached he Implies that
J It will still be tolerable for those peo
ple who heard him and who rejected
his message
Thus It Is Written
This Gospel Age which began with
our Lords sufferings and trying expe
riences and whicb has continued those
experiences with his followers has for
Its object the preparation the qualifi
cation of those who will be the Judges
of the world in the coming Age They
must all be developed in the fruits and
graces of the Holy Spirit meekness
patience brotherly kindness love
else that will not be tit to be the
Judges of mankind by and by It is
required that all become copies of the
Redeemer Gods dear Son St Paul
tells us this baying Know ye not
that the saints shall Judge the world
and that God has foreordained that all
of these judges must be copies of bis
Son Bomaus viii 29 J Corinthians
vi 2
Come back with me to the Old Testa
ment Scriptures and note how the Di
vine Spirit dictated this matter of the
future trial of the Sodomites to one of
the prophets and caused it to be writ
ten for our instruction Alas as Jesus
said we have been slow of heart to
believe all that the prophets have
poken Luke xxlv 25 Through
Ezekiel the Prophet the Lord explains
that when the restitution time shall
come at the Second Advout of our
Lord in the glory of his Kingdom then
the Divine blessing will come upon
Israel now cast off Nor will the bless
lng of Messiahs Kingdom come upon
Israel only It will extend to all the
families of the enrth Through the
Prophet the Lord specially emphasized
to Israel her two sister nations Sodom
and Sunarlu The Lord pointed out
that In the day of their pride and pros
perity they disdained these sister no
tions ns being far beneath them and
unworthy of their notice In every way
But in tiie restitution times Acts ill
IOi they will be glad to have a share
of the Divine favor In conjunction with
those nHtions formerly despised
The Lord declares that It Is not be
cause of tbe worthiness of aujofhgs
that he proposes their testiluiiotJJuil
because of his glorious rjiaraTeffiti
which his namesake Let iiftJtMl

Length and Breadth Height and
Depth z
How wonderful it at first seems to
us to find that we really havifa good
kind loving God and not an unmerci
ful and vengeful one So grosal fwere
we deceived respecting bTs TE < Sscter
by the traditions handed down from
the past that we gave him the rev
erence of fear rather than thnt of
lore and devotion The clearer light
comes to us as a fresh revelation of
the meaning of the Apostles4 words
when he wrote about lengths and
breadths nnd heights and depths of
love of God which passeth all under
The words of the Ionl through the
prophet come to our minds Fear not
their fear neither be afraid Their
fear of me is not of me but isiltuglit
by the precepts of man Ah the
heavens are higher than the earth so
are my ways hlgherthan your ways
and my plans higher than your plans
Oh Thank God that it is so To all
eternity we shall praise God that he
did not allow our forefathers to mnke
him or change his character Yes and
he is the same yesterday today and
forever He changes not The great
wise just lovlug plan for the salva
tion of mankind which he is now car
rying out was thevery one which In
purposed in himself before the world
was created The plan of selecting
the Church througli fiery trials through
the straight gate and uarrow way foi
nineteen centuries was what he pur
posed In advance for the Apostle says
that he foreknew tbe Church in Christ
Likewise the times of restitution
soon to come for tbe world of mankind
he foreknew and predestinated mil
made all the arrangements for just as
they are being carried out now The
end will be glorious His tfame will
shine resplendent ly when the mists
have cleared away and when the Sun
of Righteousness shall arise with heal
ing in his beams scattering nil the
darkness nnd degradation of sin ami
Then well see what God hathiwrought
Then well praise him praise Him as we
ought Jf
To You It Is Given
We are well aware that only the few
can see the beauties of this subject aa
we see them We are awarethat only
those to whom it is given to know
will understand in the senseof fully
appreciating the depth of tl e Divine
message But we are surejrrhnt all
such will rejoice more and more In tbe
God of our salation as thej coiue to
appreclnte his worthiness of j our love
and confidence nnd devotion 1
As for those who shall under Divine
tests prove themselves sympathetic
with iniquity we are glad that the
Divine sentence Is that they shall have
from the EternoT One a destructioi
total complete one frotlt whlch there
will be no recovery no redemption ni
resurrection They shall lie as thougk
they had not been But all the willing
and the obedient shall have the bless
