A Ini-ti-ini thoy found it most fearfully desolated; their tetnplo tle-troyed, and their pleas ant places U lug waste. Among thoe returning' Jews, are old men anil women, who in their youth, had wor shipped in the Temple now In ruins; nnd living to return to .Itulca, they gaze with sorrovy upon tho desolation ot Zton, iVnd' W(.ep as thoy rememher her former glori'ps. Theo men and wunen wero rou'iluded of tho scenes of other days, whec Jerusalem Mood in all I ho prido ,of her grandeur, e'er tho foot of tho' conipioror had destroyed tho holy 'placo; and as thoy weep while remem bering Zlon, they rejoice that through Ood and mercy they liavo been permit ted to return to'tlirtr own land, where their remains would bo gathered to thu sepulchres of their lathers. Thu first thing to he done in restoring the city, was to rebuild tho Tuinplo.nnd in so doing they had to encounter runny difllcultles; thoy were poor, and weak m numbers, a feeblo folk coin pared with tlnnr aneest rs, in tho day, when under Solomon, thoy creeled tho tlrst temple; and then, Ihov wore stir grounded by enemies, who throw every obstacle in the way of their success. Under these circumstances, tho prophet was sent to encourage them, that thev might persevere m their commendable worK. Tho Samaritans camo and proposed uniting wiiu tue .lews hi tneir under taking, but they weie an unclean peo plo. nnd it was forbidden them To day, us then, Cod wants his ptople to build His temples, and Ho requires mat ins peopio snuuiu va a pure and holy people This refusal on tho part of tho Jews, caused a spirit of antagonism and led 'to tlioso aliuns doing all in their power to atop tho woik, but "TIi j people had a mind to tho work, and tho work went on" To guard against f-urpriae, tlio 'Juws working (day and night) in re 'building tho temple and tho eity walls, carried lu tho one hand working tools, nnd in tho other a weapon of war. Now in tho midst of thue discouragements the word of tho Lord came, saying: '."Speak now unto Zerubbab'e, the son of Shealtiol, governor of Jiulali, and to 'Joshua, tho hiiih priest, and lo the r.'.s iduo of tho penplo, saying, who is left among you that saw this homo in her first glory; and how do you see it now? Is It not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?" "Yet now bo urong, 'O Zorubbatde, saiih tho Lord 'and work for I am with you. saitl. the Lord of Hosts. For thus caith tho Lord of Hosts, vet onco it is a iittlo while. ntid I will shake tho heavens and tho earth, nnd tho sna and tho dry land " 'And f ivjll shako all nations, and tho dO'slro ot 1 all nations shall com, ami I .'will 1111 this housu with glory, salth the iLord of Hosts." "Tho silver and gold are mine, s.iilh the Lord ot Hosts." "Tho glory of this latter house shall bo greater than'thu former, salth ihe Lord of Hosts, and thW rilaco will I glvo peace." Encouraged with this njossage, the people took up tho woi'k anew, and onco morn was .ludea a'b'essed land, o'ershadowed with .fohovali's 'favcr, and basking in thu siihshiun of His ami io. Wo seo a prnmlso to God's people in this history; stretching through all time, viz: That in uveiy tindot taking for God's glory, no matter how inside quate (viewed from a mere huriiiin 'stand-point) tho means employed, suc cess is insured. We notice the hoiisn referred to what is it? A houso or dwelling place is in character according to the character of its inhabitants. Rings dwell in palaces, thu rich and great in mansions, thu poor in hoveU. Tho church is distinguished by the character of its inhabitants. It U thu habitation of tho good. Prisons are usunlly the habitations of tho bail Now in prison is not a b.ul plaun, because its bricks, slones. etc., out of wh(uh it is built are bad. but because its occupant are bad. 'You ace a beautiful bu Iding. chasto and elegant in all its surround-. ings, niul you say,' lids is surely thu abode of the respectable: von sou a sa loon with its 'deca'nlors and drinking, glasses and "Its gambling uooonitmul-' ments, nnd you say t oueo, this is the home of wickedness, and those who here frequont "tear out tlio Lord." God is divine, so Is His 'church. God instituted tho churcn' and not men. Some people call nil churches but tlioir own, sects. Thu church should not thus be tunned, lor whatever Its 'pecul iarltles. or- initio, truly loving the'Lord Jesus Christ, those composing it hel'oi)g in mm. HI9IH MUU, "1111111110 11110, the habitation' of men, surrounded by dangers unseen, he laid hltn down to sleep, conscious tljut ho was in Coil's care; and in dreams ami visions of the mght ho beheld a ladder resting on the C'srih, but its top entered the heavens, and on that shining stairway God's angels wc-re descending and ascending, while tit. its top stood the great Jeho vah, saying: "Heboid.

Christ taught thu samo dortrinn to his disciples. Seo him conversing with tho woman of Samaria at Jacob's well. Shu enquired cuncerning tho proper plnce in which to acceptably worship God, saying: "Our fathius worship ped in this mountain (Gunzam,) but the Jews say that God ecu only bu wor shipped aright at Jerusalem ; now Mas. lur, which is right?" Je-us answered. " Woman, believe nic, tho hour comulh when neither in tins mountain nor yet .M Jerusalem "hall yo worship lliu Fath er.

Tliaul" God, wherever we worship lllm l'he Old Testament church was foun ded by Moses lie was its niediatot. Moses was a gteal man: great as a philosopher, scholar, poet, lawgiver, leader and warrior. Ho was i eared in ii palaeo and had every advantage of wealth and culture; and when bi his hand Israel was led forth, n mighty multitude accompanied him. while too cloud by day and pillar of lire by night gave evidence of Jehovah's presence and protecting oaio.

The mediator of th? yo are tho blanches; as thu branch can not bear fruit of it-ell', except It abode In the" rino ; no moru can yo except ye abido in mo." Now wo know there aro many branches on the vino, yet all draw nourishment therefrom; each branch 'bas'a'n equal right to this nour ishment, and so with tho Christian j h, there, Hre.many branches, yt i w nourishment 'from the Jiving in hpiiltand in trutti, 'licru is thu housu of thu Lord. , 1 I'ho true worshipper feels that angels walk with him on every mountain top, and that God communes ivitji him in uvory valley, ami tint wheruver his lot may be cast, on desert, plain, or high st mountain, sonibrn va'o or i-nllinr billow, in c.irlhly i nradlso or gloomy prison, In tonipfu eructifd by human mums, or tlucUest jungle or darkest cavein, there with an indwelling Sa viour lu hi- heart, is a Itelhol : a hou-o of the Lord; Got reveals his glory, and tlio Mint rujoiees. l wi 1 say that theie is ono place wheio thp Christian church should pre eniinenllv bu found, viz. : The lamllv. This is thu germ of the church : thuro before sin came into thu world was the church establl-hed, Two Inwswcio laid down in Kdou, and iheie two laws, viz.: Thu fiabbath and tnu family were al thu foundation ol the church. Paul In tho HHh ehaplur, -1th and 5th verses of Romans, mvius thus: Grout l'ns. cilia and Aqullla, my helpers lu Christ Jesus, nnd likowiso gioet tlio chinch that Is In their house. " Wn llnd this greeting repeated in several instances in which Vaul greeted tho church in differ ent families. This indeed, is the true idea of tho church : A faintly ol believ ers united In loving harmony, a reiiui ted Harmonious lamily is thu truo idea of a christian church "Happy that family whoo God is thu Lord " Again, heaven is called "Thu housu of the Lord." It is tlio limit resting place, wliero the angels and the good will dwell eternally together. We notice in the next placo, tho sptr itual house of tlio Lord This consists of thu visible and invisible. Thu vlsi- b'e Is composed of living men belong ing to that church. Jesus said to the tempting and wily .Sadducces: "Have ye not read in thu Hoot; of Mosrs, how in tliu bush God spak.i unto htm, say ing: 'I am the God of Abraham, and thu God of Isaac, and tlio God of .la eob.' " Uod is not tho God of tho dead, lint of tho living He doubtless meant thijse men dead (atyo say) for contu ri'es steeping in thu grave lliu dreamless sleep which knows no waking, aro not in Ihe grave as yo suppose, Thoy aro Lvlng, living with God; living in tho pulauo of tho great King, living to dlu lio more. I'liey aro a part of the ono great family of bulluvcrs, part of which is on carin, tlio ro-iduu lu thu liuavons. If this was true of the Patriarchs, it is truo now: God's family ai o ono. All who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ siiuurely, follow Him not to follow Him is not to belong to His family ins ouurcii. , Tho church Is organized to convert uud savo men. It Is Gml's'Hght house on tho coast of life's lompestlous sea. Listen to tho Lord's conuiHnd Hols about to leavo tbepi ; their liparts ore biiu: xie gives worus or comiort, nnd uomniandu: "Go yo and teach all na tions, baptising' (hum in tho nailio of tho Father and of the Son nnd of thu Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe an tilings, i uavo commiim eit von i and li, I am with you always to tlio end oi uiu worm," in tins coinmnnd U the idea- of u missionary ohurch; tho church is lur all nations not lor tiny particular people; all aro Involved in one common fill: nil are included In tho common redemption. Tho plain duty of thu churoti is to spread out into all nation, mid the Nuw IVsttimout his tory l.s plain upon this point Palil nnd Darniba- are at Antioch Now Testament church was born m the abodu ol the poor, and though angels heralded Ills birth, that birth place wn a stable. He remained with His par ents until Hu was thirty years ol age, and then' selecting a small number of iltselptes, poor and unknown mun of huiiiblo occupation uud without social mllueiico He scut them lortli to con quer thu world. Thu Old Testament church began under peculiarly favora ble circumstances, for God delivered his people by nilghtv power, leading them forth by tlio hand of Moses, thiotigh sinus and wonders wiought in tho land of Ham; with tils right aru di viding tho sea, and therein drowning tho pursuing foe. Thu New Testament church began its existence under the most adverse circumstances, and viewed from a meru human stand-point teemed destined to certain faint o. Moses cainu In tho name of Him who sent Him. His message tuPhuroah and Israel was: "1 am, hath sent.nie unto you." Far greater than Moses wa thu mediator ot tho Now Testament church, who came in His own name, tor lie was divine. When by John "thu heav ens opened, tho Spirit dccumlcd in the form a dove and Jehovah proclaimed, 'Tills l.s my boiovcd Son In whom I am woll pleased; hear yo lllm." Moses received power and authority fiom God to lead His people out of Fgypt. Jesus eamo "thu light of tho wond to savo men from their sins." Mosi-.s was not suffered to outer tho promised land Je sus spent His entire lito on earth t Hero in. .Moses sinned and died on ihe bor der of Canaan. Jesus died aUo, but thuro was a vast ditleivnco In tho sur rounding ein unisluuccs of their deaths. Moses from the top of Nebo beheld tho land his people wero to possess; and though no earthly frieml stood by to catch his dying words, or listen to hjs latest sign, lioil and angels wero there to minister to his dying nours, lo bear Ins soul to Paiadlsu and lay his body on tnu muni, uurisi it ed on t uivan, suf fering as a malefactor between (two thieros) an Ignominious death, enduring untold agonies for a world of sinners lost. Moses died a naluial death; Jesus that sinners might live. Greater Inyo uaiu uo man inau mis, ui.a a man should lay down tils tile for bis friend," out t hrlst commonilulh His love to lis, In that while wo wire y.et sinners, Hu died lur us, died for His enemies. The violated law declared, "The soul that sin net I', it shall die;" all but two of the liuniaii racu siill'ercd temporal death "oyo for an eye, tooth for a tooth," was tho teaching of the Jewish law ; but Christ came to mediate, to save, to magnify tin- law an J bear thu penalty in his own body on thu cross, Tho pun- ally was laid on Him and Hu paid it. llie law destroys, Out Jesus saves. Un der tlio law of Mocs quick punishment followed every trausgioslon. Under tho law of Christ titers is moicy for the tor tlio weou, forgiveness lor sinners. Jusiis is the mighty com forter, Hu is saying, "Como unto, jo that labor and aru heavy laden, ami I will giro yon re.st;" and to all who will como are promised life, pardon and eternal salvation. Moses bunging an offering ol a lamb. did not take away stn, but It was a con tinual lomombianco. of sin, and every itme uiu priest oiiercu uiu saeriiico lie i.ud tho people had a remembrance of their sins and guilt remained; but Christ otl'ered not a lamb, but his own l)oty tin atonement for sm, and enter lug pot Into thu tabernacle built by men, out Into heaven itsult, Ho mndo an atonement for all men everlasting as its.viitues and merits deserved. Moses brought olletlng for tho Ilnbrow only, and even in thu tumplu erected by Zn- rubbable, only Jesus could enter. Hut Christ has bullded a tomplu for all mankind, a spiritual temple bulhW of lively stones and Irradiated with the glory of tho Lord Wero Ills tomplo for .lows only- had Ho died for them alone, wo would bo most miserable, but fiom Juden wont forth the glorious tidings, "Cltrjst died' for all u. en." Mos-s died on the Mount a natural death; God 'buried him, mid no inau knoweth his sepulchre. Jesus died on Calvary in full view of the many thousands passing to attend the feast, who witnessed and gloated 'over His dying agonies On tho occasion of this foist it is estimated that us many as probably two mil ion of people attend, ed. Pilate had Placed over thu head of Jesus, in three di Heron t languages, this Inssriptlon. "TJn's is Josu, tho King of thu Juws." lint around that cross wore soon no emblems of royally savo tio sceptre of reed, tho mock robe and crown of thorns. Taken from tho cross and born to tho sepulchre, the God man lay under tho dominion of death; hut short thu triumph of tho destroyer. On tho morning of tho third day IIq came lortn limn tlio tomb, triumphing over in ilio new Chi 1st taught, thuii fol.owers to pray to ""ur Fithir who ait In heaven." Our Father, O joyful thought, thu creator i f Heaven and earth, our lather; then aro we llfiod up, tuadu God's dear chlldtvn aud he its to an heavenly lulu litauee. In lliu old dispensation Ihe promise was a Saviour .would come. In thu now dispensation wo ruioli e that Ho lias conic, "llchol 1 wo bung vou tidings grcaf joy," whs thu aiiiiounconont the nnzel at the Redeemer's tilitli, and wo hear the same uiitioimccmcnt to day ringing down thu ages and thril ling liu'r souls' as we look backward to Uethlehaui's plain; and no matter what church wo belong to when uu incut at Hcthicham, wo are brethren. In the old leinplo wero numerous ceremonials to bo observed, lu tho christian church but two sacraments arc regarded, viz : liaptism and lliu Lord's Supper: tho one, tho outward sign ol tho work ol giaco in tlio heart ; the other, a com mcmointion of our Lord's death. When Llljah prayed on (.'annul, tiro fell from heaven anil consumed the sac- rilico; and when we pray in faith, the llru of the Holy Ghost descends from heaven upon our hearts and pin itlus. llrcthron and -Istoss, this Holy lire we must h-ive. 0, I lint It may come to all to day ami inspire all of Us to work for God. 'I'ho .nini-tet's work is to preach tho gospel so as to instruct and savo men. i'hls power, tho power of tho Holy Spirit, is ncccssarr to convert tlio sin ner; and if you will como together, as did the church at Jerusalem, aud plead, your neighbors and friends ami chil dren will bo brought to Christ and bo saved. )Ton have built a light house, n bea con to tho lumpct tossed on life s sea; here you havo a city of rcftigu to which tho in sick may ib-o and rest secure In JuMfs. What can we do without tho power of (iod exhibited in voar midst? Then llvu so that this blessed power may bo exercised to savo. lu nuiitiiiig t lie old temple, tmioers had to bo brought from Lebanon. In building Christ's spiritual houso, thu material employed is sinners, who have oeeii lilted up out nt tnu mire ami clay and have been "washed in tho Uiood ol the lamb." Tho glory of tho church is to Fave souls; to point out to the erring the way of peaeu, and to lead poor wan derers back to God.
