one of his addresses from the following text 0 give thanks unto the Lord for he Is good for his mercy endureth forever Psalm evil t Thanksgiving Day appeals to all of as and wo are glad that the Pilgrim athers long years ago started the custom They placed it at the end of the harvest and in recognition of the same The keeping of such a day ap peals to all civilized mankind in a con siderable degree because our Great Creator so organized us that the qual fly of reverence of worship lies prom inently on the top of our lead The man or woman rich or poor educated or ignorant bond or free who has not this organ of veneration developed in considerable measure cannot be appre dative and deferential toward his Creator and hence would not enjoy Thanksgiving day We are glad that these are comparatively few We are glad to suppose that the majority of this great nation of civilization looked iip to God with grateful hearts and rendered him thanks for blessings manifested Hindrances to Truo Reverence Nevertheless the numbers increase yearly of those who are losing their reverence for the God of the Bible and Vaguely turning towards a God of Nature of whcni thus profess to know comparatively little These irreverent and unthankful fellowcreatures are not generally the most ignorant of our race nor the least favored in temporal mercies and blessings Among them are many learned wealthy influential Their condition is well represented by that of a young woman who called at my study recently In substance she said I have lost m lam un happy I am IlGpingthat you will be able to assist me in finding him again Thank God we were able to assist her and now she is able to give thanks to God in all sincerity- I am not speaking to the irreverent in this audience nor to those of this class in my larger audience of millions all over the world to whom I speak through the public press I am speak ing to others who while not yet fully in the faith are still disposed to give thanksl speak to these be cause 1 realize that each day is bringing to the world greater latcH gence more independent thoughtful ness in a wider use of reason speak because my experience teaches that unless these be fully armed with the Truth and awakened to independ eat thought they are almost certain to fall into unbelief Evolution Higher Criticism and a mere form of godli ness which denies the real power thereof Tho Truth Shall Make You Free The Great Teacher prayed for his followers Sanctify them through thy Truth thy Word Is Truth John xvii 17 To be forearmed with the Truth is to be safeguarded against the error To be ignorant of the Truth is to fall a prey to the error especially in thiZ evil day when a thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right hand Psalm xci 7 The difficulty with us has been that many have supposed that the conversion of the world and Its sanctification can be better accomplished by misrepresentation of Divine Character and Justice Unconsciously we have learned to twist and interpret our Bibles to fit the erroneous creeds which were hand ed to us by our wellmeaning forefathers The Day of Judgment upon these false creeds is upon us Un less we learn that they do not prop erly interpret the Bible we will re ject the Bible when we reject the creedsand that must be very soon for all thinking people To the Law and to the testimony if they speak not according to this Word it is because there is no light in them Isaiah viii 20 Causes For Ingratitude Come let us reason together saith the Lord If our creeds tell us truly that we were all born damned either to Purgatory or to eternal torment should we give thanks on this ac count If our creeds tell truly that an elect handful of saints will escape the torture how do we know wheth er or not we belong to that elect hand ful Have we sufllcicnt information on this subject to give thanks there for If our creeds tell truly that near ly all the members of our families nearly ail of our neighbors and friends being unsalntly not sanctified in Christ Jesus not followers In the footsteps of Jesus not of those who wall not after the flesh but after the spirit these all except a mere hand ful are doomed to more horrible tort r ture than the worst earthly sufferings we could possibly imagine for them and are doomed to these for centuries lii Purgatory according to the Catho

who would make au haJl atrocious plan And could we respect his honesty if he labelled itigOO1 tidings of great joy to all people Assuredly we coulchnot If the foregoIng things which have DarkIenIcour race experience those tortures If these things be true rather should we give thanks for famine and pestilence which would obliterate our race entirely and thus save future thousands of millions from the horrors of eternal torture These thoughts will come to all intelligent beings sooner or later Wo bring them forward now in order that we may fIset them with the Truth that we may show the fallacy of these doctrines of devils rhs St Paul designates them I Timothy iv We bring them to your attention so that we may not only demolish them but give you instead the true satisfactory portion the Truth the Bread that came down from heaven to give life eternal not merely to the saintly few of the Church but to mankind in general Those who get the proper view of our Creator and of his glorious Plan

the Ages for spir itual Israel natural Israel and tho world in general thoy will hereafter be able to celebrate every Thanksgiv ing Day much more abundantly much more Intelligently much more happily than any in the past More than this to these every day will be a happy day if rightly exercised by the goodness of God they shall give him their hearts Then truly they may say 0 happy day that fixed my choice On thee my Savior and my God Well may this glowing heart rejoice And tell its raptures all abroad Gods Mercy Endureth Forever In the Psalm from which our text isItaken the Prophet David repeats sentiment of Thanksgiving to God be cause of the evercontinuance of his mercy twentysix times Our English translation does not give us the exact thought however Properly translated it would read 0 give thanks for his mercy endurcth ever The word ever more nearly represents the thought of the Hebrew which signifies not for ever but to a completion As long as there is any use for mercy Gods mer cy will continue When the great vine Program shall have been accom plished when every creature in heav en and in earth and under the earth shall be heard saying Praise and glory and honor dominion and might be unto him that sitteih upon the Throne and unto the Latib forever Revela tion v 13 then there will no longer be need for mercy rtWcy will have accomplished its work Mercy signifies the setting aside ofIjustice in some manner for some son Justite is the foundation of Gods thronethe foundation of the Divine Government Justice had con trol of rather Adam and offered him eternal life in an Eden home as a reward for obedience or death extinction as the penalty for disobedience As Divine Wisdom had foreknown man disobeyed and the penalty of Jus tice Dying thou shalt die wqs exe cuted Through heredity all of Ad ams race became involved all Inher ited sinful tendencies and dying con stitutions For more than two thousand years death reigned under the edict of Jus tice and our race as a whole were sub ject to it A little later the Law Covenant was made with Israel one na tion out of many It seemed to offer placcdied eternal life if they could keep the Lawwhich they could not keep because of inherited blemishes moral and physical Uwns over four thousand years from the time Justice struck the fatal blow until Divine mercy stepped for ward with the healing balm Gods mercy is his love in active operation for the relief of the condemned Al though God is Love and hence must always have been loving and kind and merciful of disposition yet this quality of his character was held in restraint as respects condemned men for more than forty centuries So the Apostle explains saying Herein was manifested the love of God in that he sent onlybegotten Son into thehis world that whosoever believeth in him should not perish bqt have ever lasting life I John iv 9 John iii 1C But meantime the darkness of sin and the misrepresentations of Divine character by the Adversary had so op erated upon the fallen race that eyes had they but they saw not ears hail they but they understood not hearts had they but they comprehended north message of Divine mercy They fulfilled the Scriptures in slaying the One sent for their relief And they have misunderstood slandered ma ligned killed his followers the few blessed with the hearing ears and the understanding hearts and the eyes of faith These few constitute what the Scriptures designate the true Church of God including the Apostles and all the faithful throughout this Age the household of faith the Church of the FirstBoVns whose names are written in heaven Hebrews xii 23 These constitute the Little Flock to whom it Is the Fathers good pleasure to give the Kingdom which shortly Messi ahs Kingdom Is to bless and uplift the world operating through natural IsraelMercy Rejoicath Over Justice Mans necessity became Gods oppor tunity for the display of his glorious character perfect in Justice Wisdom Love anU Power While love could sot clear the guilty it could provide f a Redeemer to suffer the Just tor the unjust Bat Diyine Justice could not allow this unless with the consent of the sufferer Hence we read that Gods t before his onlybegotten Son a ooperationthe heavenly glory was made flesh and offered himself an acceptable sacrifice the Just for the unjust for the redemption of Adam and his race The Father honored him by raising him from the dead toa still higher glory and hquor than he had before to immortality the divine na ture Now from his glorious station he is empowered to be the Mediator between God and men between Di viiiojrustiee and fallen humanity lie is empowered to give the earthly rjghts which he sacrificially laid down for Adam and his race to so ninny of them as will accept the perfection of human nature and its rights and priv ileges upon terms in harmony with the Divine Lawthe remainder he will de stray annihilate as brute beasts Peter ii 12 Acts iii 23 As though all this were not sum ciently wonderful as though with all this the Heavenly Fathers Wisdom Justice Love and Power would not exemplifiedGodbeginning to deal with the world as a whole to give back to the willing and obedient Qf the race human perfection and an earthly Eden Paradise and eternal life before commencing this work of restitution Acts iii 10 the Father made known to the Son another feature of his Plan He would give to the Son a Bride a class selected from amongst the fallen racecalled chosen faithful overcomers These as the JointHeirs of the Second upliftingwill become the children of Christ through obedience and adoption The trials and testings of all those who will become the Bride of Christ must be similar to those of the Re deemer They must suffer with him If they would reign with him As he sacrificed his earthly life and rights and interests so must they He exhorted them Present your bodies liv- Ing sacrifices holy and acceptable to God a reasonable senice Romans xli 1 True there is a difference between these followers of Jesus and the Captain of their salvation He was brought into the world holy harmless undefiled and separate from sinners hence his sacrifice is a perfect one Those accepted as his members as his Bride belong to therace of sinners They were children of wrath even as others Ephesians 113 Their ac ceptance as sacrifices therefore was not possible except as the great Cap tain of their Salvation imputed to thQse sacrifices a sufficiency of the merit of his sacrifice to compensate for their defects and to make their sacrifices ac ceptable to the Father with his and as a part of his they being counted in with him as members jot his Body My dear friends those of us who have the eye of faith and the hearing of faith to appreciate this the Message of Gods Word may surely be thankful to the last degree What more could our Heavenly Father do for us than he has doneredeeming us Inviting us to a now nature giving us the aids by the way and making us sharers In the Kingdom glory of his Son More than this he has been blessing our friends our children our parents our neigh bors the heatheniall of mankind of one

Have we not as followers of the Lord as Christians misrepresented the facts of the case und endeavored to have people give thanks to God for uukindncss injustice lovclessuess to a God whose mercy never reached us and would never reach any but a small proportion of our race through the knowledge of Christ to a God whose mercy even to the onetenth of those who had ever heard of him he said would endure only for the present life and even among these bring a blessing only to a mere handful of the elect Let us go back to the Word of God and free out minds of the prejudices of superstition and misinterpretation handed down from the Dark Ages LoTus see the glory of our God as re vealed in the Bible Let Christians give thanks that by the grace of God their eyes and ears of understanding are

lesIsonGdonce of Peter and his assertion Though nil men shall be offended be cause of Thee yet will 1 never be of fendid then to the Saviours This night before the cock crow thou shalt deny Me thrice his further bore emphatic assertion Though should die with Thee yet will I not denyI Thee how do we pity him and disciples for they all asserted the same It was as If Peter said Lord Thou dost not know me Thou canst surely count on me to be true at any cost Do we see ourselves Have we ever sung Surely the Captain May De pend on Me If so were we not as foolishly boastful as Peter How the Lord must have pitied him How He pities us None can be saved until they know that are lost for He evIerout strength ungodly enemies enmity against God dead In sins children of disobedience and wrath having no hope and without God In the world Run iii 39 v 10 viii 7 Eph Ii 13 5 12 Such helpless hell deserv ing sInners Jesus aves fully and for ever by His finished work without any help from us whatever When saved we are just as helpless to live a Chris tian life and to serve Tim as we were to save ourselves So thegreat lesson for the saved sinner to learn is the sig nificance of Not but Christ Not 1 but the grace of God Without Me ye can do nothing Gal II 20 Cor xv 10 John xv Unless it is God who worketh in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure the work cannot stand but will prove to be only wood hay and stubble We must be ever watchful prayerful submitting to God and resisting the devil if we would walk worthy of Him who bath called us to His kingdom and glory We have seen Peter during to rebuke the Lord as He spake of suffering though the Scriptures may be said to be full of predictions coneernipg the sufferings of the Messiah We have heard him say We have lef fall for Thee What shall we have therefore We have also heard him say Tboir shall nev II wash my feet Webave heard his self confident boasting that he was ready to die with Christ Yet we have seen him taking off n mans ear fop a fgilowingthe enemies of Christ and wannbas himself at thpir fire What we ex poet next from such a man The damsel who kept the door ns she saw him sit by the fire worming himself looked earnestly upon him and said And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth Compare the four ac counts nut he denied saying Wo man I know Him not neither understand 1 what thou sayest Alas alas how can we account for it Did the devil who led Judas Iscariot to betray Christ take possession of Peter also Even so for ona previous occasion Jesushnd tosay to Peter Get thee be hind me Satan Mutt xvi 23 On the Passover night the Lord said Simon Simon behold Satan bath desired to have you IL V asked to have you that he may sift you as wheat but I have pray d for thee that thy faith fail not Luke xxli 31 32 After that first denial he went out into the porch and the cock cr w Thpn another mold saw him arid be gan to sayto them thatrstood by This fellow was also with jpsus of Naza reth And ngain he denied with an outhOI I do not know the man If belied only left the bud company as soon as he found himself falling be might have repented sooner but it is grow ing worsethe second denial was ac companied by an oath About an hour later another confidently affirmed say- Ing to Peter Surely thou art one of them for thou art a Galilean and thy speech agreeth thereto The kinsman of the man whose ear Peter said Did not see thee in the gl1denI with Him Then he began to curse and to swear saying I know not this man of whom ye speak And immediately while he yet spake the cock crew the second time and the Lord turned and looked upon Peter And Peter called to mind tbe word that Jesus said unto him Before the cockcrow Jwice thou shall deny me thrice Mark xiv 3072 And when he thought thereon he went out and wept bitterly This wits not like the remorse of Judas Iscariot which lcdto suicide but there were tears of true enitoncp How much do we know of the com fort of the assurance that He ever
