From the new York Herald another rugged iconoclastic Sermon was delivered by the Kiev. Heber Newton in All so in Church sunday week. Or. Newton described the growth of the belief in the second coming of Christ its origin in Israel thought t he changing phases of its de j a elopement in christianity and its flowering in the Faith of the coining of divine order on Earth lie Tia cd the roots of his he Lief in the hebrew Hope of a Messiah christianity he said is the child of Juda sin. It is a free rendering of the prophetic religion of Israel. One of the most striking features of Israel s life was its messianic expectation. This was at Wirsta dream of political Power on the part of the plucky Little nation that now found an Opportunity to prove its Genius for Empire. The political dream was charged with the ethical spirit of coming King was to be such a righteous ruler As w pictured in the seventy second l Salm. The hand of destiny rudely broke this dream Only to leave the nobler aspirations of the soul of i race free to vision a loftier Dawn of the Day when the Puri fied nation the righteous suffering servant of Jehovah should Lead the Peoples of Earth into the knowledge of the lord. A curious theology a composite of jewish and Gentile superstitions grew around this double germ. We Trace the growth of a popular superstition about the Messiah in the ago prior to Jesus through such books As Enoch. A clearly defined belief had by the time of Jesus shaped every re Spect the very belief which we find later on in pre existent Messiah the elect and concealed one of Enoch departing from Earth to visit the spirit world returning from tins heavens clothed with divine authority and Power to raise the dead judge Mankind and introduce thu millennium on hebrew Utopia. The traditional doctrine of Christ s second Advent was in the air waiting to Crystal around Jesus. He was received at first by his followers As the hebrew Messiah. They were expecting him to set up the throne of a political Messiah asking lord Wilt thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel his death which for a while broke the spell of his Power was after they had become persuaded of his continued lift inevitably seen by them to be the carrying out of the popular belief of Israel. He bad gone into the spirit world. He would come again with Power and great glory to judge Tho world to set up his earthly kingdom ruling Mankind from Jerusalem establishing the perfect order upon Earth. He would then come shortly. He might come any any hour. This was the inspiring belief of the Early christians and no wonder that they stood boldly before the Caesars and dared the Power of Home. But it was essentially the jewish dream of Utopia with a new charging of ethical and spiritual Force from the life of Jesus introduced miraculously. In Paul s mind we see it gradually fading out into a Hope and Faith in the ultimate coming in of the divine order on Earth. Head chronologically his epistles show this Devi Ozment clearly. Thessalonians contrasted with Loomans makes it Plain. This change came about through Man co operating causes. The repeated disappointments of ancient Hope at last opened his eyes. His travels brought him face to face with the real problems of Earth. His jewish superstition died out in a Broad Aud Manly cosmopolitanism of religion. Taught of the spirit Jesus came no longer to be a jewish Messiah but. The head of humanity from whom it was to grow toward its Ideal slowly organically Aud a new Earth Rise be Neath Nev heavens. Before he died he had lost his jewish dream and gained a human Faith which was As Lowell says Hope made he stamped this Lar Ger thought Aud aspiration upon the Young Church. The Catholic epistles show that the Church had settled Down to regenerate human society. Like All creative epochs formative period of christianity typed the slow development of its succeeding Ages. The Church has been gradually passing from the crude and Callow belief of ancient Israel into the Large Aud human Faith in an organic regeneration of society through which the Ideal is to come out upon the actual Aud Man grow divine As the spirit of god breathes out jaws and institutions and manners arts and sciences and economics toward perfection.
