THe Greater Works of | Jesus' Disciples & & & I How His Promise Has Been Realized Through the Operation of I the Holy Spirit*. I ^ Sermon toy the "Highway and Byway" Preacher. L Copyright, 1903, by J. M. Edson. ^^^F Chicago, Sunday, 1903. Text:—“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me, the works that 1 do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because 1 go unto My Father.”—John H:12. TANDING on the threshold of the bitter agony of the garden, and the cruel death on the cross, and with the marvelous minis try of something over three years behind Him, Jesus utters the thrilling and start ling words of our text: “Verily, verily, I say unto you. He that believeth on Me, the works that 1 do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because 1 go unto My Father.” Greater works! Even the faith of Peter must have staggered at that. Even John, who understood his Lord so w’ell, must have been perplexed and troubled. Greater works! There swiftly pass before the vision of the disciples the scenes of tri umph of that ministry. The multitudes gathered in the streets of Capernaum. The sick, the crippled, the demon-pos sessed are brought and He "healed them every one.” Again and again did they witness His hand stretched forth to heal. The company of weeping friends is gathered before the tomb of Lazarus. He has been dead three days, but Jesus bids him come forth and he obeys the summons, and the home at Bethany is changed from one of sorrow to a happy, rejoicing one. Twice they beheld the vast multitudes gathered out on the mountain side and saw the few loaves and fishes multiply under the touch of Jesus until more than 6,000 are fed and large quantities of food remain. They heard Him during those three years Tirpaphimr anrl loopliino' Tito truth of 5,000 men beside women and children, but Peter, through the Holy Spirit, is able (o feed 5,000 men with the bread of life and win them for Christ and eternity. Greater works! Then fol low the days of mighty miracles which far outnumbered those which Jesus performed. The shadow of Peter fal ling on the sick was potent through the power of the Holy Spirit to heal. At a later day handkerchiefs which Paul had blessed performed their works of healing as the sick were led to put faith in Jesus Christ. Greater works, indeed! But we have not time to re view the whole glorious, marvelous, triumphant history of the Gospel as recorded in the Acts. Take and read it for yourself. Consider the wide ex tension of the Gospel, the converts won, the miracles performed, and you will end by praising God because Jesus’ promise of greater works had its literal and splendid fulfillment in the days of the apostles and the early church. BUT what in our thought constitutes greater works? Do we consider the miracles—the healing, the raising of the dead, the feeding of the multi tudes, the nets filled with fishes—as the greatest fruits of Jesus’ ministry, and must there be a larger realization of such miracles in the service and ministry of Jesus’ disciples to-day in order that we may feel that Jesus’ promise has been fulfilled? Is there not a tendency always to associate with the thought of greater works the healing of the sick, the giving sight to the blind, the raising of the dead? So often do we hear the mournful regret expressed that the disciples to-day have not the gift of healing so that the preaching of the Gospel might be at tended by mighty works of the Spirit which would bear visible testimony to the power of God. The “greater works’’ has come almost to-be a synonym for miracles, as though God dealing with the physical was greater than God dealing with the spiritual. As a rule I am inclined to believe that the longing and unrest for another day of miracles such as ushered in the birth of the apostolic church is rather an evidence of unbelief than of faith. It is that old weakness of the natural man which desires to see. “Seeing is believing,” is the thought which un consciously sways the heart. The heal ing of the sick, the raising of the dead, what glorious and indisputable testi mony they would be to the world! Thus we think and reason, and almost believe that God is short-sighted and careless in not pouring out His gift of healing upon the church to-day. Greater works, or in other words, miracles. BUT are miracles greater works? Did Jesus so consider them? Why was His heart heavy, why was He sad. when the multitude had been healed at Capernaum and the 5,000 fed in the wilderness? Was it not because there was not the greater work of the crea tion of a new heart through faith in Him? “Ye must be born again.” was Jesus’ message to Nicodemus, and the miracle of the new birth was a greater work than that of physical healing, or bringing to life again the dead body, even though the latter were more wonderful to the natural eye of man. That Jesus forgave the sins of the man sick of the palsy before He raised him up to health and strength is signifi cant. The greatest need of that man was not a healed body for this life, although his case was so pitiable and his need so great, but it was a cleansed and redeemed soul which would live with God throughout the eternities. This Jesus gave to him first. It was a greater work. It is evident from Jesus’ first words to the man—“Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee”—that the man was troubled more by his sin-sick soul than he was by his disease-racked body. Jesus saw deeper than the physical, and because the man himself realized his greater need, Jesus at once met that need and gave forgiveness and salvation. Then came the healing as a secondary work, “that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins.” The miracles were proof of His Divinity. The continuation of the miracles through the early years of the church was for the purpose of link ing the Christ before the cross with the risen and asrended Christ and es- < ^ n Vil i eli ? n r- _j 1 . God was unfolded. The hypocrisies and false teachings of Scribes and Pharisees were laid bare. The seeker after truth was always satisfied, the critic was al ways answered. So marvelous and clear and scriptural were the teachings that it was declared that never man spake as this man. The marvelously great works of Jesus, and yet as a parting message to His disciples He tells them that they shall be permitted to perform greater W'orks. Greater works! HAD we been present with that little group of disciples in that upper room on the last night before His cru cifixion and heard the words of our text fall from Jesus’ lips we might have been staggered by them and failed utterly to understand their meaning. Our faith would hardly have carried us to the sublime heights of Divine triumph in their fulfillment, but with 19 centuries of triumph and glory of the Gospel, with the marvelous work of the early church as related by Luke in the book of the Acts, we must exclaim: "Behold, what God hath wrought!” Head the book of Acts and you must admit that what Jesus declared should be the fruitage of His disciples’ ministry was literally ful filled in the mighty operation of the Holy Spirit through them, first at Je rusalem, then Judea and Samaria, and then to the uttermost part of the earth. These words need no explanation ex cept that which is furnished by the story of the growth and spread of the Gospel after the descent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost up to the present day. Jesus meant, I believe, just what He said. His words need no interpre ter except hearing ears, seeing eyes and hearts that will understand. The open ing sentence of the Acts is significant. Luke is writing after the disciples have gone everywhere preaching the Word, after Paul’s mighty triumphs in the Gospel in Asia and Europe, and looking back on it all and contrasting it with the results of Jesus’ ministry which he re corded in one of the Gospels, he says: “The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up.” And on that day He encouraged the disciples with this prom ise: "Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.” THE second chapter unfolds the wonderful fulfillment of that prom ise. when on the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit descended and filled them so that they all began to proclaim the Gospel message. And although they were mostly uneducated Galileeans, tney spaae in ail tne different tongues of the world. The multitudes were “amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galileeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Partnians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellersin Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.’’ Greater works, surely! And following this, after the multitudes have gathered, Peter stands up and preaches and 3,000 souls are converted, more in one day after one sermon than Jesus had been able to win during the whole three years of His ministry. But that was only the beginning. A few days after ward the healing hand of God operates through Peter and John and the life long cripple at the beautiful gate leaps and walks and praises God, and 3oon the great area of Solomon’s porch is 1 crowded with people to whom Peter 1 at once preaches Christ Jesus and Him crucified, and 5,000 men are converted, j The women are not mentioned, but if , they outnumbered the men in that ( early day in their acceptance of the Gospel as they do to-day there must ' nave been about 15,000 women con- ; verted, too, besides children. But leaving the women out of the reckon- ' ing and counting only the men what ] a tremendous ingathering! Jesus fed i --n ' vrauuftdi W CL V ui salvation. That which Jesus began to 3o, His disciples continued to more gloriously and fully do after He had iscended and the Holy Spirit had descended upon them. But a greater work than the speaking with tongues 1 was the raising from the deadness in 1 sin to newness of life in Christ Jesus if 3,000 souls. A greater work than i Lhe healing of the lame man at the I Beautiful Gate was the healing of 5,000 ' sin-sick souls which followed. A mira cle might cause the world to pause and wonder, but a soul cleansed in Jesus’ ’ ilood and given life in Him is able to ■ set all Heaven to rejoicing. Think ; if it! AND in considering the greater works which Jesus' disciples are to lo in fulfillment of His promise, we nust not forget that although the dis ciples of Christ may do greater works han their Master, yet His, and His ilone, is the enabling power. “With >ut Me ye can do nothing,” was His lositive declaration uttered at the same time that He gave the promise ind prophecy of our text. See how 5eter on the day of Pentecost recog lized this and publicly declared it. He old the multitudes that the speaking vith tongues was the fulfillment of 1 )ld Testament prophecy where God J leclared that ‘‘in the last days I will J >our out of My Spirit upon all flesh." i JVhen the impotent man was healed 1 ind the people ran together to see the c eonderful thing which had happened, 1 5eter immediately said: “Ye men pf i srael, why marvel ye at this? or why 1 look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk . . . for faith in Jesus’ name hath made this man strong." The declaration in the clos ing verse of Mark’s Gospel is signifi cant and suggestive: “And they (the disciples) went forth, and preached everywhere, THE LORD WORKING WITH THEM AND CONFIRMING THE WORD WITH SIGNS FOLLOW ING.” I^HE reason the disciples were to do greater works than their Master is made clear by the closing words of our text. “Because I go unto My Father.’’ The return of Jesus to Heaven was proof of three glorious facts: Jesus' triumph; God’s acceptance, and man’s deliver ance. Jesus triumphed over sin and death; God accepted the sacrifice of His well-beloved Son for the sin of the world, and man was delivered from the consequences of sin. being cleansed and redeemed by Jesus’ blood and made ac ceptable to God in the righteousness of Christ. And the return of Jesus to Heaven was the reason His disciples were to be enabled to do greater works than He had performed. While here in this world in bodily form Jesus was bound by certain limitations. But His going to Heaven made it possible for God to send the Holy Spirit to be every where present in the hearts of the be lievers and to be all-powerful. If Jesus had remained in the world to carry on His work He could have been in but one place at one time, but through the Holy Spirit who is sent to represent Him in the world Jesus is able to go everywhere with His disciples preaching the Word, and bringing dead souls to life. How marvelous n uu is: ureaier worKS man Jesus could do while on earth because the channels through which He could pour His power have multiplied through the years and multitudes have been raised from death to life. Greater works! A Peter at Jerusalem; a Philip at Samaria; a Barnabas at Antioch; a Paul in Asia and Europe; a Luther in Germany; a John Knox in Scotland; a Wesley in England; a Moody in Ameri ca. and within the last year the most re markable world-wide evangelistic tour of Mr. Torrey and Mr. Alexander with their over 30,000 converts. Australia, the center of the great revival move ment, was turned into one vast choir singing the Gospel hymns, and praising God for the mighty works of savin grace which were wrought on every hand. Greater works, surely! HOW may the promise of Jesus find its realization in and through us? 1 believe this promise is for the Chris tian of to-day, for you and me. Greater works, because Jesus is in Heaven di recting the greatest conflict of the ages against sin, and because the Holy Spirit is present in the world and the command to the believer is “be filled with the Spirit.” All the rich, full and wonderful promises of the New Testament are for us and are to be fulfilled in us. Greater works, but perhaps not a duplication of the works of the early church, except in the winning of souls to Christ. What is there in connection with this text which troubles the Christian, and makes him question whether its promise may be realized in him? Is it not because the thought has been centered upon the material rather than the spiritual? Is it not because the Christian has come to exalt the power of God upon the physical above the power of God upon the dead and sin-blackened soul? Jesus declared to those who were seeking for a sign that no sign should be given them. And the Christians to-day who are seek ing for a sign in the miraculous as a tes timony to the world when no such tes timony is needed will be disappointed. THE greatest miracle is a trans formed life. The greatest testi mony for Christ is the life redeemed and sanctified. Instead of sighing and praying: “Lord, Lord, where are the greater works? Do something won derful through me.” we ought to rejoice in a Christ powerful to save, and pray that we might permit Him to so live in our hearts and shine forth in our lives as to win others to Him. Were we per mitted to perform miracles we might draw the multitudes and impress them with our power, but it would not win them for Christ. We'may have the presence of Jesus in our lives though so as to wdn some soul for Chirst. The greatest thing in the world is not the Sift of tongues or prophecy, it is not the understanding of all mysteries or the possession of all knowledge, it is not faith that could remove mountains, it s not charity which would give all 'Q T~t V" 1 Tmccocoinnci +/-. f^n:i v A- -- mo s not martyrdom in the name of Jesus, jut the greatest thing in the world is love. And the greatest work in the world is the fruit of that love, the win ling of a soul for Christ. It is not mir icles which the world needs to-day to Iraw it unto Christ, but it is the Christ lifted up in the individual lives of Chris tians so that the world may be drawn unto Him. Then may we realize the iromise of Jesus of greater works. Have you ever led a soul to Christ? If »'ou have you have known in the joy of hat moment the greater works which Christ is performing through you. Let us be content to live in the present. Let is like true soldiers of Jesus Christ live aithfully and obey His orders implicit y, and permit Him to plan the cam iaign. He will make no mistakes, He will not fail you, and you in your service vill be doing the greater works which vill shine as stars in your crown forever md ever. HopI Sonera.

TRIED BY TIME. Eugene E. Lario, of 751 Twer.tictt Avenue, ticket seller in the Union Sta tion, Denver, Col., says: “ VTou are at liberty to repeat what I first stated through our Denver pa pers about Doom's Kidney Pills in the summer of 1899, for I have had no reason in the interim to change my opinion of the remedy. I said when first interviewed that if I had a friend and acquaintance suffering fr’om backache or kidney trouble 1 would unhesitatingly advise them to take Doan’s Kid ney Pills. I was subject to severe attacks of backache, always aggravated if I sat long at a desk. It struck me that if Doan’s Kidney Pills performed half what they promised they might at least help. This induced me to try the remedy. It absolutely stopped the backache. I have never had a pain or twinge since.’’ A FREE TRIAL of this great kidney medicine which cured Mr. Lario will be mailed to any part of the United States on application.

The pedograph, according to the Bal timore News, is contained in a box that the person walking bears before him suspended from the shoulder by a strap. This box contains a small board, on which is fixed a sheet ol paper which is to receive the tracing, parallel to the board and at a little distance from it being a plate of un polished glass. The active portion ol the instrument—called the recorder— is composed of a small metallic frame bearing a wheel with pointed teeth which rests on the paper and traces by punching holes. The recorder is sup ported on the paper and on the glass by small wheels. The board is maintained vertically under the action of its own weight, the descent being regulated by the shake given each time by the steps of the bearer. Here are the essential portions of the recorder. A small moving body—ar ranged as an equilibrated pendulum— a long spring acting on a very small lever, which, at each oscillation, makes advance to the extent of a tooth, and a ratchet wheel, the axis of which car ries an endless screw geared to the printing wheel. If the ratchet wheel has 50 teeth, 50 oscillations will make one round of its axis and the printing wheel has made a mark for 50 oscil lations or steps. If the interval of the teeth of the printing wheel is 1.20 of an inch corresponding to 50 steps, 1,000 steps will correspond to one inch or one-half mile, 2.000 steps to two inches or one mile, etc. The beard is always vertical and Is fixed in the middle of a horizontal axis connected with the box or envelope, and consequently the board may turn around this axis. At the upper part of the box—which a spirit level always keeps evenly held—is a piece carrying a magnetized needle forming a com pass. A button, which is turned by the hand,, makes the piece in question always coincide with the needle, if a turn in the direction causes the walker to deviate from the original direction. A little transmitter composed of two pulleys of the same diameter and an endless cord connects the piece carry ing the needle to the axis of the board, so that if the bearer changes his direc tion to right or left the board inclines from one side to the other of its orig inal direction, while always remaining the same as the glass in a vertical plane. It will be found that the re corder thus not only traces the dis tance. but also the direction in which the bearer is going. A Peculiar Dircl.
