You will find the males who with impious hands placed upon His make up the crimson robe, upon His sacred brow the thorny crown, as well as in His unresisting hands the mimic scepter, and bowed before Him in blasphemous mockery.

     With awful distinctness do priests and rulers can remember the occasions of Calvary. With shuddering horror they remember how, wagging their heads in satanic exultation, they announced: "He saved others Themself He cannot save. If He function as the King of Israel, allow him to now come lower in the mix, and we'll believe Him. He reliable in God allow him to deliver Him now, if He'll get him to.Inch Matthew 27:42, 43.

     Strongly they can remember the Saviour's parable from the husbandmen who declined to render for their the almighty the fruit from the winery, who mistreated his servants and slew his boy. They remember, too, the sentence that they themselves pronounced: The the almighty from the winery "will totally destroy individuals wicked males." Within the sin and punishment of individuals disloyal males the priests and elders see their very own course as well as their own just disaster. And today there increases a cry of mortal agony. Even louder compared to shout, "Crucify Him, crucify Him," which rang with the roads of Jerusalem, increases the awful,

                                                                            644

despairing wail, "He's the Boy of God! He's the real Deliverer!" They aim to flee from the existence of the King of nobleman. Within the deep caverns of the world, rent asunder through the warring from the elements, they vainly make an effort to hide.

     Within the lives of who reject truth you will find moments when conscience energizes, when memory is definitely the torturing recollection of the existence of hypocrisy and also the soul is bothered with vain regrets. But what exactly are these in comparison using the remorse of this day when "fear cometh as desolation," when "destruction cometh like a whirlwind"! Proverbs 1:27. Individuals who'd have destroyed Christ and the faithful people now witness the glory which rests upon them. At the time of the terror they hear the voices from the saints in pleased strains exclaiming: "Lo, this will be our God we now have anxiously waited for Him, and that he helps you to save us." Isaiah 25:9.

     Among the spinning of the world, the expensive of lightning, and also the roar of thunder, the voice from the Boy of God calls forth the sleeping saints. He looks upon the graves from the righteous, then, raising His hands to paradise, He cries: "Awake, awake, awake, ye that sleep within the dust, and arise!" Through the length and breadth of the world the dead shall hear that voice, plus they that hear shall live. And also the whole earth shall ring using the tread from the exceeding great military of each and every nation, kindred, tongue, the ones. In the prison house of dying they are available, dressed with immortal glory, crying: "O dying, where's thy sting? O grave, where's thy victory?" 1 Corinthians 15:55. And also the living righteous and also the risen saints unite their voices inside a lengthy, glad shout of victory.

     All come forth using their graves exactly the same in stature as once they joined the tomb. Adam, who stands one of the risen throng, is of high height and regal form, in stature but little below the Boy of God. He presents reasonable contrast to folks of later decades in that one respect is proven the truly amazing degeneracy from the race. But all arise using the quality and vigor of eternal youth. At first, guy

was produced within the likeness of God, with character, however in form and have. Sin defaced and almost obliterated the divine image but Christ found restore what have been lost. He'll change our vile physiques and fashion them like unto His glorious body. The mortal, corruptible form, lacking of comeliness, once polluted with sin, becomes perfect, beautiful, and immortal. All blemishes and penile deformation remain within the grave. Restored towards the tree of existence within the lengthy-lost Eden, the redeemed will "developInch (Malachi 4:2) fully stature from the race in the primeval glory. The final residual traces from the curse of sin is going to be removed, and Christ's faithful ones can look in "the good thing about the The almighty our God," in your mind and soul and the body reflecting an ideal picture of their The almighty. Oh, wonderful redemption! lengthy spoken of, lengthy wished for, considered with eager anticipation, but never fully understood.

     The living righteous are transformed "in just a minute, within the twinkling of the eye." In the voice of God these were glorified description of how the are created immortal along with the risen saints are swept up to satisfy their The almighty in mid-air. Angels "collect His elect in the four winds, in one finish of paradise towards the other." Small children are borne by holy angels for their mothers' arms. Buddies lengthy separated by dying are u . s ., nevermore to part, with tunes of gladness ascend together towards the Town of God.

     On both sides from the cloudy chariot are wings, and beneath it live wheels and because the chariot comes upward, the wheels cry, "Holy," and also the wings, because they move, cry, "Holy," and also the retinue of angels cry, "Holy, holy, holy, The almighty God Almighty." And also the redeemed shout, "Alleluia!" because the chariot moves forward toward the brand new Jerusalem.

     Before entering the town of God, the Saviour bestows upon His fans the emblems of victory and spends all of them with the insignia of the royal condition. The glittering ranks are attracted up as a hollow square regarding their King, whose form increases in majesty high above saint and angel,

                                                                            646

whose countenance beams upon them filled with benignant love. Through the unnumbered host from the redeemed every glance is bound upon Him, every eye beholds His glory whose "visage am marred a lot more than any guy, and the form a lot more than the sons of males." Upon the heads from the overcomers, Jesus together with his own right hands places the crown of glory. For every there's a crown, bearing their own "new title" (Thought 2:17), and also the inscription, "Holiness towards the The almighty." In each and every hands are put the victor's palm and also the shining harp. Then, because the commanding angels strike the note, every hands sweeps the harp strings with skilled touch, awaking sweet music in wealthy, melodious strains. Rapture unutterable thrills every heart, and every voice is elevated in grateful praise: "Unto Him that loved us, and cleaned us from your sins in the own bloodstream, and hath made us nobleman and priests unto God and the Father to Him be glory and dominion for good and ever." Thought 1:5, 6.  

Prior to the ransomed throng may be the Holy City. Jesus opens wide the pearly gates, and also the nations which have stored the reality type in. There they behold the Paradise of God, the house of Adam in the innocency. Then that voice, more potent than any music that ever fell on mortal ear, is heard, saying: "Your conflict is ended." "Come, ye fortunate of My Dad, inherit the dominion ready for you against the building blocks around the globe.Inch

     Now's satisfied the Saviour's prayer for His disciples: "I'll they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be around Me where I'm.Inch "Faultless before the existence of His glory with exceeding pleasure" (Jude 24), Christ presents towards the Father purchasing His bloodstream, proclaiming: "Here am I, and also the children whom Thou hast given Me." "Individuals that Thou gavest Me I've stored." Oh, the miracles of redeeming love! the rapture of this hour once the infinite Father, searching upon the ransomed, shall behold His image, sin's discord banned, its blight removed, and also the human once again harmoniously using the divine!

                                                                            647



     With unutterable love, Jesus welcomes His faithful ones towards the pleasure of the The almighty. The Saviour's pleasure is within seeing, within the kingdom of glory, the souls which have been saved by His agony and humiliation. And also the redeemed is going to be sharers in the pleasure, because they behold, one of the fortunate, individuals who've been won to Christ through their hopes, their labors, as well as their loving sacrifice. Because they gather concerning the great whitened throne, gladness unspeakable will fill their hearts, once they behold individuals whom they've won for Christ, and find out that certain has acquired others, which and others, all introduced in to the haven of relaxation, there to put their crowns at Jesus' ft and praise Him with the endless cycles of eternity.

     Because the ransomed ones are welcomed towards the Town of God, there rings out upon the environment an exultant cry of adoration. The 2 Adams are going to meet. The Boy of God is standing with outstretched arms to get the daddy in our race--the being whom He produced, who sinned against his Maker, as well as for whose sin the marks from the crucifixion are borne upon the Saviour's form. As Adam discerns the prints from the cruel nails, he doesn't fall upon the bosom of his The almighty, however in humiliation casts themself at His ft, crying: "Worthy, worthy may be the Lamb which was slain!" Tenderly the Saviour lifts him up and bids him look once again upon the Eden home that he's such a long time been exiled.

     After his expulsion from Eden, Adam's existence on the planet was full of sorrow. Every dying leaf, every victim of sacrifice, every blight upon the fair face of character, every stain upon man's wholesomeness, would be a fresh indication of his sin. Terrible was the agony of remorse because he beheld iniquity abounding, and, in response to his alerts, met the reproaches cast upon themself as the reason for sin. With patient humbleness he bore, for pretty much a 1000 years, the penalty of transgression. Faithfully did he repent of his sin and rely upon the merits from the guaranteed Saviour, and that he died with the hope of the resurrection. The Boy of God redeemed man's failure and fall and

                                                                            648

now, with the work from the atonement, Adam is reinstated in the first dominion. Moved with pleasure, he beholds the trees which were once his delight--the trees whose fruit he themself had collected dads and moms of his innocence and pleasure. He sees the vines that their own hands have trained, the flowers he once loved to look after. His mind grasps a realistic look at the scene he comprehends this is definitely Eden restored, more lovely now than when he was banned from this. The Saviour leads him towards the tree of existence and plucks the glorious fruit and bids him eat. He looks about him and beholds numerous his family redeemed, waiting in the Paradise of God. He then casts his glittering crown in the ft of Jesus and, falling upon His breast, holds the Redeemer. He touches the golden harp, and also the vaults of paradise echo the triumphant song: "Worthy, worthy, worthy may be the Lamb which was slain, and lives again!" The household of Adam occupy the stress and cast their crowns in the Saviour's ft because they bow before Him in adoration.

     This reunion is observed through the angels who wept at nov Adam and rejoiced when Jesus, after His resurrection, ascended to paradise, getting opened up the grave for those who should believe on His title. Description of how the behold the job of redemption accomplished, plus they unite their voices within the song of praise.

     Upon the very ocean prior to the throne, that ocean of glass so to speak mingled with fire,--so resplendent could it be using the glory of God,--are collected the organization which have "become the victory within the animal, and also over his image, and also over his mark, and also over the amount of his title." Using the Lamb upon Mount Zion, "getting the harps of God," they stand, the hundred and forty and 4, 000 which were redeemed from among males and there's heard, because the seem of numerous waters, and because the seem of the great thunder, "the voice of harpers harping using their harps." Plus they sing "a brand new

                                                                            649

song" prior to the throne, an audio lesson which no guy can learn save the hundred and forty and 4, 000. It's the song of Moses and also the Lamb--an audio lesson of deliverance. None however the hundred and forty-4, 000 can learn that song for this may be the song of the experience--an event for example not one other company have ever endured. "They are they which stick to the Lamb whithersoever He goeth." These, getting been converted in the earth, from one of the living, are counted as "the very first fruits unto God and also to the Lamb." Thought 15:2, 3 14:1-5. "They are they which arrived on the scene of great tribulation" they've passed with the duration of trouble for example was not ever since there is a nation they've suffered the anguish of times of Jacob's trouble they've was with no intercessor with the final outpouring of God's choice. But they've been shipped, for they've "cleaned their robes, making them whitened within the bloodstream from the Lamb." "Within their mouth was discovered no guile: for they're without fault" before God. "Therefore could they be prior to the throne of God, and serve Him day and evening in the temple: and that he that sitteth around the throne shall dwell included in this.Inch They've seen our planet wasted with famine and pestilence, the sun's rays getting energy to scorch males with great warmth, plus they themselves have suffered suffering, hunger, and thirst. But "they shall hunger forget about, neither thirst anymore neither shall the sun's rays light in it, nor any warmth. For that Lamb that is at the time from the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears using their eyes." Thought 7:14-17.

     In most age range the Saviour's selected happen to be educated and disciplined within the school of trial. They walked in narrow pathways on the planet these were purified within the furnace of affliction. For Jesus' sake they suffered opposition, hate, calumny. They adopted Him through conflicts sore they suffered self-denial and experienced bitter disappointments. By their

                                                                            650

own painful experience they learned the evil of sin, its energy, its guilt, its woe plus they look upon it with abhorrence. A feeling of the infinite sacrifice designed for its cure humbles them in their own individual sight and fills their hearts with gratitude and praise which individuals who've never fallen cannot appreciate. They love much because they've been pardoned much. Getting been partakers of Christ's sufferings, they're suited to be partakers with Him of His glory.

     The beneficiaries of God came from garrets, from hovels, from dungeons, from scaffolds, from mountain tops, from deserts, in the caves of the world, in the caverns from the ocean. On the planet these were "destitute, stricken, tormented." Millions went lower towards the grave packed with infamy simply because they steadfastly declined to yield towards the deceitful claims of Satan. By human tribunals these were adjudged the vilest of crooks. However "God is judge Themself." Psalm 50:6. The choices of earth are corrected. "The rebuke of His people shall He remove.Inch Isaiah 25:8. "They shall give them a call, The holy people, The redeemed from the The almighty." He hath hired "to provide unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of pleasure for mourning, the outfit of praise for that spirit of heaviness." Isaiah 62:12 61:3. They're no more feeble, stricken, scattered, and oppressed. Henceforth they should be ever using the The almighty. They stand prior to the throne clad in more potent robes compared to most honored of the world have ever worn. They're crowned with diadems more glorious than were ever placed upon the brow of earthly monarchs. The times of discomfort and weeping are forever ended. The King of glory has easily wiped the tears all faces every reason for grief continues to be removed. Among the waving of palm branches they pour forth an audio lesson of praise, obvious, sweet, and harmonious every voice occupies the stress, before the anthem increases with the vaults of paradise: "Salvation to the God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." And all sorts of the occupants of paradise respond within the ascription: "Amen: Blessing, and glory, and knowledge, and

                                                                            651

thanksgiving, and recognition, and energy, and can, be unto our God for good and ever." Thought 7:10, 12.

     Within this existence we are able to only start to comprehend the wonderful theme of redemption. With this finite comprehension we might consider most seriously the shame and also the glory, the existence and also the dying, the justice and also the whim, that meet within the mix yet using the utmost stretch in our mental forces we neglect to grasp its full significance. The space and also the breadth, the depth and also the height, of redeeming love are but dimly comprehended. The program of redemption won't be fully understood, even if the ransomed see because they are seen and know because they are known but with the eternal age range new truth will constantly unfold towards the wondering and delighted mind. Although the griefs and pains and lure of earth are ended and also the cause removed, the folks of God is ever going to possess a distinct, intelligent understanding of the items their salvation has cost.

     The mix of Christ would be the science and also the song from the redeemed through all eternity. In Christ glorified they'll behold Christ crucified. Never could it be forgotten he whose energy produced and upheld the unnumbered mobile phone industry's with the huge area of space, the Beloved of God, the Majesty of paradise, He whom cherub and shining seraph delighted to adore--humbled Themself to uplift fallen guy he bore the guilt and shame of sin, and also the hiding of His Father's face, up until the worries of the lost world broke His heart and crushed out His existence on Calvary's mix. The Maker of mobile phone industry's, the Arbiter of destinies, should lay aside His glory and humiliate Themself from like to guy is ever going to excite the question and adoration from the world. Because the nations from the saved look upon their Redeemer and behold the eternal glory from the Father shining in the countenance because they behold His throne, that is from everlasting to everlasting, and realize that His kingdom would be to don't have any finish, they break forth in rapturous song: "Worthy, worthy may be the Lamb

                                                                            652

which was slain, and hath redeemed us to God by Their own most precious bloodstream!"

     The mystery from the mix describes other mysteries. Within the light that streams from Calvary the characteristics of God which in fact had filled us with fear and awe appear beautiful and attractive. Whim, tenderness, and parental love are noticed to combine with holiness, justice, and energy. In the end behold the majesty of His throne, high and lifted up, we have seen His character in the gracious manifestations, and comprehend, as nothing you've seen prior, the value of that endearing title, "Our Father."

     It will likely be seen he who's infinite in knowledge could devise no arrange for our salvation except the sacrifice of His Boy. The compensation with this sacrifice may be the pleasure of peopling our planet with ransomed creatures, holy, happy, and immortal. Caused by the Saviour's conflict using the forces of darkness is pleasure towards the redeemed, redounding towards the glory of God throughout eternity. And the like is the need for the soul the Father is content using the cost compensated and Christ Themself, beholding the fruits of His great sacrifice, is content.

Church - Because the time hired within the decree draws near, the folks will conspire to root the hated sect. It will likely be going to strike in a single evening a decisive blow, which shall absolutely silence the voice of dissent and reproof. The folks of God--some imprisonment cells, some hidden in solitary retreats within the forests and also the mountain tops--still plead for divine protection, during every 3 months companies of armed males, advised on by hosts of evil angels, are planning for that work of dying. It's now, within the hour the most extremity, the God of Israel will interpose for that deliverance of His selected. Saith the The almighty

"Ye shall possess a song, as with the evening whenever a holy solemnity is stored and gladness of heart, as when one goeth . . . in the future in to the mountain from the The almighty, towards the Mighty Among Israel. And also the The almighty shall cause His glorious voice to become heard, and shall show the lighting lower of His arm, using the indignation of His anger, along with the flame of the consuming fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones." Isaiah 30:29, 30. With shouts of triumph, jeering, and imprecation, throngs of evil males are going to hurry upon their prey, when, lo, a dense blackness, much deeper compared to darkness from the evening, falls upon our planet. A rainbow, shining using the glory in the throne of God, spans the celebs and appears to encircle each praying company. The angry multitudes are all of a sudden arrested. Their mocking cries die away. The objects of the murderous rage are forgotten. With fearful forebodings they gaze upon the symbol of God's covenant and lengthy to become shielded from the overpowering brightness.

     Through the people of God a voice, obvious and melodious, is heard, saying, "Lookup,Inch and lifting their eyes towards the heavens, they behold the bow of promise. The black, angry clouds that covered the firmament are separated, and like Stephen they appear up steadfastly into paradise and find out the glory of God and also the Boy of guy sitting upon His throne. In The divine form they discern the marks of His humiliation and from His lips they hear the request presented before His Father and also the holy angels: "I'll they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be around Me where I'm.Inch John 17:24. Again a voice, musical and triumphant, is heard, saying: "They are available! they are available! holy, harmless, and undefiled. They've stored the term of My persistence they shall walk one of the angels" and also the pale, quivering lips of individuals who've held fast their belief utter a shout of victory.

     It's at night time that God manifests His energy for that deliverance of His people. The sun's rays seems, shining in the strength. Signs and miracles follow in quick succession. The wicked look with terror and amazement upon the scene, as the righteous behold with solemn pleasure the tokens of the deliverance. My way through character appears switched from its course. The streams cease circulation. Dark, heavy clouds show up and clash against one another. At the time from the angry heavens is a obvious space of indescribable glory, whence comes the voice of God such as the seem of numerous waters, saying: "To control your emotions.Inch Thought 16:17.

     That voice shakes the celebs and also the earth. There's a

                                                                            637

mighty earthquake, "for example wasn't since males were upon our planet, so mighty an earthquake, and thus great." Verses 17, 18. The firmament seems to spread out and shut. The glory in the throne of God appears flashing through. The mountain tops shake just like a reed within the wind, and ragged rocks are scattered on the sides. There's a roar by a coming tempest. The ocean is lashed into fury. There's heard the shriek of the hurricane such as the voice of devils upon a mission of destruction. The entire earth heaves and increases such as the waves from the ocean. Its surface is splitting up. Its very fundamentals appear to become giving way. Mountain chains are sinking. Lived on islands disappear. The seaports that are presently like Sodom for wickedness are ingested up through the angry waters. Babylon the truly amazing originates in remembrance before God, "to provide unto her the cup from the wine from the fierceness of His wrath." Great hailstones, everybody "concerning the weight of the talent," do their work of destruction. Verses 19, 21. The proudest metropolitan areas of the world are laid low. The lordly palaces, where the earth's great males have lavished their wealth to be able to glorify themselves, are falling apart to ruin before their eyes. Prison walls are rent asunder, and God's people, who've been locked in bondage for his or her belief, are positioned free.

     Graves are opened up, and "most of them that sleep within the dust of the world. . . awake, some to everlasting existence, plus some to shame and everlasting contempt." Daniel 12:2. All who've died within the belief from the third angel's message come forth in the tomb glorified, to listen to God's covenant of peace with individuals who've stored His law. "Additionally they which pierced Him" (Thought 1:7), individuals that mocked and criticized Christ's dying agonies, and also the most violent opposers of His truth and the people, are elevated to behold Him in the glory and also to begin to see the recognition placed upon the loyal and obedient. 

Thick clouds still cover heaven the sun occasionally breaks through, showing up such as the avenging eye of Jehovah.

                                                                            638

Fierce lightnings leap in the heavens, covering our planet inside a sheet of flame. Over the terrific roar of thunder, voices, mysterious and awful, declare the disaster from the wicked. What spoken aren't comprehended by basically they're noticeably understood through the false instructors. Individuals who just a little before were so reckless, so boastful and defiant, so exultant within their cruelty to God's commandment-keeping people, are actually overcome with consternation and shuddering in fear. Their wails are heard over the seem from the elements. Devils acknowledge the deity of Christ and tremble before His energy, while males are supplicating for whim and groveling in abject terror.

     Stated the prophets of old, because they beheld in holy vision your day of God: "Howl ye during the day from the The almighty reaches hands it shall come like a destruction in the Almighty." Isaiah 13:6. "Enter the rock, and hide thee within the dust, for anxiety about the The almighty, but for the glory of His majesty. The high looks of guy will be humbled, and also the haughtiness of males will be bowed lower, and also the The almighty alone will be exalted for the reason that day. During the day from the The almighty of hosts will be upon everybody that's proud and high, and upon everybody that's lifted up and that he will be introduced low." "For the reason that day a guy shall cast the idols of his silver, and also the idols of his gold, that they made each one of these for themself to worship, towards the moles and also to the bats to enter the clefts from the rocks, and in to the tops from the ragged rocks, for anxiety about the The almighty, but for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly our planet.Inch Isaiah 2:10-12, 20, 21, margin.

     Via a rift within the clouds there beams a star whose brilliancy is elevated fourfold in comparison using the darkness. It talks hope and pleasure towards the faithful, but severity and wrath towards the transgressors of God's law. Individuals who've sacrificed all for Christ are actually secure, hidden as with the key from the Lord's pavilion. They've been examined, and prior to the world and also the despisers of truth they've evinced their fidelity to Him

                                                                            639

who died on their behalf. A wonderful change originates over individuals who've held fast their integrity within the very face of dying. They've been all of a sudden shipped in the dark and terrible tyranny of males changed to devils. Their faces, so recently pale, anxious, and haggard, are actually aglow with question, belief, and love. Their voices increase in triumphant song: "God is our refuge and strength, a really present help in danger. Therefore won't we fear, although the earth be removed, despite the fact that the mountain tops be transported in to the midst from the ocean although the waters thereof roar and become troubled, although the mountain tops shake using the swelling thereof." Psalm 46:1-3.

     While these words of holy trust ascend to God, the clouds sweep back, and also the starry heavens are noticed, unspeakably glorious in comparison using the black and angry firmament on each side. The glory from the celestial city streams in the gates ajar. Then there seems from the sky a hands holding two tables of stone folded together. States the prophet: "The celebs shall declare His righteousness: for God is judge Themself." Psalm 50:6. That holy law, God's righteousness, that among thunder and flame was announced from Sinai because the guide of existence, has become revealed to males because the rule of judgment. The hands opens the tables, and you will find seen the precepts from the Decalogue, tracked just like a pen of fire. What are extremely plain that can see them. Memory is turned on, the darkness of superstition and heresy is taken from every mind, and God's ten words, brief, comprehensive, and authoritative, are given to the vista of all of the occupants of the world.

     It's impossible to explain the horror and despair of individuals who've trampled upon God's holy needs. The The almighty gave them His law they may have in comparison their figures by using it and learned their defects while there is yet chance for repentance and reform but to be able to secure the favor around the globe, they put aside its precepts and trained others to transgress. They've endeavored to compel

                                                                            640

God's individuals to profane His Sabbath. Description of how the are condemned with that law that they have despised. With awful distinctness they see that they're without excuse. They chose whom they'd serve and worship. "Then shall ye return, and discern between your righteous and also the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not." Malachi 3:18.

     The opponents of God's law, in the ministers lower towards the least included in this, possess a new conception of truth and duty. Past too far they observe that the Sabbath from the 4th commandment may be the seal from the living God. Past too far they begin to see the true character of the spurious sabbath and also the sandy foundation where they've been building. They find they have been combating God. Religious instructors have brought souls to perdition while professing to steer these phones the gates of Paradise. Not before the day's final accounts could it be known how great is down to males in holy office and just how terrible would be the outcomes of their disloyality. Only in eternity are we able to appropriately estimate losing just one soul. Fearful would be the disaster of him to whom God shall say: Depart, thou wicked servant.

     The voice of God is been told by paradise, proclaiming your day and hour of Jesus' coming, and delivering the everlasting covenant to His people. Like peals of loudest thunder His words roll with the earth. The Israel of God stand listening, using their eyes fixed upward. Their countenances are lighted track of His glory, and shine as did the face area of Moses when he came lower from Sinai. The wicked cannot look upon them. So when the blessing is pronounced on individuals who've honored God by continuing to keep His Sabbath holy, there's a mighty shout of victory.

     Soon there seems within the east a little black cloud, about 50 % how big your hands. It's the cloud which surrounds the Saviour and which appears within the distance to become shrouded in darkness. The folks of God know this to become the manifestation of the Boy of guy. In solemn silence they gaze upon it as being it

                                                                            641

draws nearer our planet, becoming lighter and much more glorious, until it's a great whitened cloud, its base a glory like consuming fire, and above it the rainbow from the covenant. Jesus rides forth like a mighty conqueror. Not now a "Guy of Sorrows," to drink the bitter cup of shame and woe, He comes, victor in paradise and earth, to evaluate the living and also the dead. "Faithful and True," "in righteousness He doth judge making war." And "the armies that have been in paradise" (Thought 19:11, 14) follow Him. With anthems of celestial tune the holy angels, a huge, unnumbered throng, attend Him on His way. The firmament appears full of radiant forms--"10000 occasions 10000, and 1000's of 1000's." No human pen can portray the scene no mortal thoughts are sufficient to get pregnant its splendor. "His glory covered the celebs, and also the earth was filled with His praise. And The brightness was because the light." Habakkuk 3:3,4. Because the living cloud comes still nearer, every eye beholds the Prince of existence. No crown of thorns now mars that sacred mind but a diadem of glory rests on His holy brow. His countenance far outshines the the dazzling brightness from the noonday sun.
