Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. John 16:32 The Hour! It was coming! Yea, it has already come, though the disciples did not yet realize its awful implications. Somehow they are filled with fear and apprehensions of evil things impending that night; their hearts were troubled, Strange things had already happened. The last supper, the passover, the Master had so greatly desired to celebrate with them, had been eaten; and it...

More and more it seems as though equity, truth and wisdom have fled from the face of the earth, never to return. The very foundations of human relationship seems to be so shaken that only cruel might, total deception and ludicrous folly seem to reign supreme. However, nothing is farther from the truth. Even now, God lives and all is well. Even now, as ever, all things happen according to a very fixed plan and for a very determinate purpose. Moreover, that plan and that purpose are strictest justice and divine truth and wisdom. At all times God says: “These...

Let us again get before our eye the two parties to the great religious struggle raging in England and in Scotland in the period under consideration. We saw how that the yoke of the Pope was thrown off both in England and in Scotland where the Reformation had triumphed.

We learn this from Moses’ reply to Korah, “Tomorrow the Lord will shew who is His, and who is holy; and whom He makes to draw near to him; and whom He chooses will He make to draw near to Himself” (Num. 16:5). Now whereas the whole congregation was holy, what was meant is that Aaron and his sons (the priesthood) possessed this property in a peculiar sense. This raises the question, What was the symbolical holiness of the priesthood? And the answer: It was the holiness that...

And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and eiders said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusted in God; let him deliver him now; if he will have him; for he said, I am the Son of...
