Tal Mugo s Sermon to div gives a very Gnu soul View of Tho celestial world and is one of Tho most unique discourses of Tho great preacher. Tho text is Ezekiel i 1, a now it came to pass in the thirtieth Vear. In the fourth month in Tho fifth Day of the month As i was among Tho captives by l to River Cobur that Tho head us were Ezekiel with others had Bacou expatriated Aud while in foreign slavery standing on the Banks of the Royal canal which he and other serfs had been condemned to dig by the order of Qubti this Royal canal in Tho text called the River of Ghebar the illustrious exile had visions of heaven. Indeed it is almost always so that Tho brightest visions of heaven come not to those who Aro on Mountain top of Prosperity but to some John on desolate in Utmos or to some haul in Mamer tino Dungeon or to some Ezekiel standing on tin Banks of a ditch to had been compelled to dig Yoa to Trio weary to the heartbroken to Toboso whom sorrow Lias banished. Tho text is very particular to give is the exact time of the vision. It was in Tho thirtieth year and in Tho fourth month and in the fifth Day of the month. So Yon have had visions of Earth you shall never forget. You remember Tho year Yon remember Tho Mouth you remember the Day von remember Tho hour. Why May to not have Soto such vision now and it to in Tho twelfth Mouth nod in sixth Day of the month but Are they doing the question is often silently asked though perhaps never audibly it Pound eds what Aro our departed Christian. Of is doing now Quot Tho question is More easily answered than you might perhaps suppose. Though there Lias come no recent intelligence from twin heavenly Rity. And to seem dependent up. U Tho Story of 18 centuries ago. Still 1 think to May from strongest inference decide what arc the present porn Patio Sof our transferred Kinsfolk. After god has mud a nature to never eradicates the chief characteristic of its temperament. You never knew n Man phlegmatic in temperament to become a Auguie in temperament. You never knew a Man Sau Gnido in temperament to become phlegmatic ill temperament. Conversion plants new principles in the soul but Paul and John Aro just As different from each other after conver Dou us they Weru different from each other Belg Oro conversion. If conversion does not eradicate Tho prominent characteristics of temperament neither will death eradicate them. Pan land John Arona different from each other in heaven us they were different from Euclid other in Asia minor. You have then Only by a sum in subtraction and a sum in addition to decide what Aro the employments of your departed friends in the better world you Aro to subtract from them All earthly Gros less and add All earthly goodness and then yen Are to Coile to Tho conclusion that they arc doing now ill heaven what in their Best moment they did on Earth. The reason Why so Many Puoplo never Start for heaven is because they could not stand it if they got Thuro if it Snell a turn out to to the rigid mud formal place some people photograph it. To like to Corno to Church but to would not want to stay Here till next summer. To like to hear Tho a a hallelujah chorus Quot but to would not want to hear it All the time for 50 centuries. It might be on some great occasion it would to possibly Comfort Ablo to Wear a Crown of Gold i i Whitig several pounds hut it would be an affliction to Wear such a Crown forever. In other words to run Tho descriptions of he Uvea into Trio ground while to Muko that which was intended As a special Aud Cele Rativo to to the exclusive employment in heaven. You might As Well if asked to describe Tho habits of american society describe a decoration Day or a fourth of july or an autumnal thanksgiving As though it were All Tho Tiro that Way. Tho do Lubrent employment. I am not going to speculate in regard to Tho future world a mtg must by inevitable Lawson iof Rouco and deduction and common sense conclude that in Chaveu to will to just As different from each other us to Are now different mud hence that Thero will be at least As Many different employments in Tho celestial world As there Aro employments Here. Christ is to to Tho great love the great Joy Tho great rapture the great worship of lion Veu hut will that abolish employments no More than Lovo on Earth paternal filial fraternal conjugal love abolishes earthly occupation. In Tho first place i remark that those of our departed Christian friends who on Earth found great Joy in the Guo arts Aro now indulging their tastes in Tho Satsuo direction. On Earth they had their Gladdess pleasures amid pictures mud statuary mud in Tho study of Tho Laws of Light and Shade arid perspective. Have you any idea that that affluence of faculty at death collapsed and perished wily so when Thuro is Roro for them to look at and they have Keener appreciation of the Beautiful Aud Thoy staud amid Tho very looms where the sunsets Aud the rainbows and the Spring mornings Aro Woven Are you so obtuse As to suppose because Tho Painter drops his easel mud the sculptor his chisel and Tho engraver his Cuifo that therefore that taste which he was enlarging und intensifying for 40 or 50 years is entirety obliterated these artists or these friends of Art on Earth worked in coarse material and with imperfect Braiu Aud with frail baud. Now they have carried their Art into larger liberties Aud into wider circumference. They Aro at their old business yet but without the fatigues without Tho limitations without Tho hid races of the terrestrial studio. Raphael could improve upon hib masterpiece of Quot Michael the archangel a now that to has Scon him and could improve upon his masterpiece of the Quot holy Trinity Quot now that he has visited them. Michael Angelo could better present Tho a last judgment Quot after he had Soeu its Flash Aud heard Tho ram bling buttering rams of its to Tudor. Chhut still put Tang. Exquisite colors Here Graceful lines hero powerful chiaroscuro hero but i am persuaded that Tho grander studies and the Bright galleries Aro higher up by the winding Marble stairs of Trio sop it , mud that Turnor and Holman Hunt and Rembrandt und Titian and Paul Veronese if they exercised saving Faith in Tho Christ whom they portrayed upon Tho Enn Vns arc painting yet but their strength of faculty multiplied ten thousandfold. Their hand has forgotten its Canning hut the spirit Lues faculties is far Superior to four fingers Aud a thumb As the supernatural is Superior to the human. Tho reason that god took away their Eye Aud their hand Aud their brain was that to might give them something More Limber Roro Wield More skillful More . Do not therefore he Meln nobody among Tho tapestries and Tho Bric a Bro and Tho embroideries and Tho water colors Aud Tho works of Urt which your departed friends used to a Miro. Do not say Quot i am so sorry they had to leave All these rather say a i us they have goo up to higher artistic Opportunity and our friends who found so much Joy in Tho Fine arts on Earth arc now luxuriating in Louvres and Luxembourg celestial. I remark again that All our departed Christian friends who in this world were passionately fond of music no still regaling that taste in the world celestial. Tho Biblo says so much about Tho Minsio of heaven that it cannot nil to figurative. Why All this talk about alleluia is and choirs of Tho Glass and trumpets and harps Aud oratorios and organs Tho Bible Over Aud Over again Speaks of Tho songs of i Cucu. If Chaveu had no songs of its own a vast number of those on Earth would have been taken up by the earthly emigrants. Surely the Christian at de Atli does not lose his memory. Then Thero must to millions of souls in heaven who know a Coronation Quot Aud a Antioch Quot and Quot mount Pisgah and Quot old Tho Leader of Tho eternal orchestra need Only once tap his Baton and All heaven will to ready for Tho hallelujah. If i coven should Over get nut of music Thomas Hastings and Lowell Mason and Bradbury would Start up a Hundred old magnificent Chorals. But what with the new song that John mentions and the various do ologies alluded to and the importation of sub lunar her Morics a Christian fond of music dying will have an abundance of regu Lement. Bluit though the voice to goo in death what though Tho ear to fallen in dissolution Aro you therefore to conclude Tomt Tho spirit will have no Power to Mako or catch Sweet sounds cannot Tho soul sing How often we compliment some a Quisito binding by saying a Thero was so much soul in her music. A a Celi it enl music. In heaven it will to All soul until Tho body of tar awhile comes up ill Trio resurrection mud then them will to ail additional Chaveu. Cannot the soul hear if it can hear then it can hear music. Do not therefore let it Boiu your household when Sonio member leaves for Chaveu As it is in Somo households that you close Trio piano and Unstrung Tho Harp for two Yoars be Causo the fingers that used to play of them Aro still. You must remember that they Liao better instruments of music where they Are. You ask me a Udu they have real harps and real trumpets and real organs a i do not know. Some Wise acres say positively there Aromi such things in heaven. I do not know but i should not to surprised if Tho god who mud All Trio mount aids and Ull the Hills mud All the forests Aud nil the mines of the Earth and All Tho growths of Tho uni a Orsco i should not to surprised if he could if to had a a Niue to Miako a Fow harps und trumpets and organs. Grand old Haydn sick mud workout was carried for Tho last Timo into Trio Musio Hull. Thuro he heard his oratorio of Tho history says that As Tho orchestra came to that famous passage Quot let Thero to Light Quot Trio Audi Cuco Rosu and cheered and Haydn waved his hand toward heaven mud said a it comes from there a overwhelmed with his own music to was carried out in his chair Aud us to Camo to the door he spread his hand toward the orchestra Asiu Benedi Etious. Haydn was right when to waved his hand toward heaven and said a it comes from music was born in Chaveu and it will Ever have its highest to Roux in heaven and i want you to understand that our departed Frioud who were passionately fond of Musio Here Are now at the Headquarters of Harmony. I think that Tho grand old Church tunes that died when your grandfathers died have goo with them to Liea Vou. Who those tunes died they did not stay of ii Atli and they not have been banished to perdition and so i think they must to in the corridors of Alabaster mud Lebanon Cedar. Id Lou illum Lent tic. Capaiu i remark flirt those of our departed Christian friends who in this world had very Strong military spirit Are now in armies celestial Aud out in bloodless Battle. There Are hundreds of people born soldiers. They cannot help it. They belong to regime uts in times of peace. They cannot hear a drum or a Fife without trying to keep dec a to the music. They Are Christi us and when they Light they fight on Tho right Side. Now when these our Christian friends who had natural Aud powerful military spirit entered heaven they entered the celestial army. Tho door of heaven scarcely opens but you hear a military demonstration. David cried out Quot Tho chariots of god Are 20,000&Quot Elisha saw Tho mountains filled with celestial cavalry. St. John said Quot Tho armies which Are in heaven followed him on White now when those who had the military so Virit on Earth sanctified entered glory i suppose they right away enlisted in some heavenly Campaign. They Volin right away. There most needs be in heaven soldiers with a soldierly spirit. There Are grand Parade Days when the King reviews Tho troops. There must be armed escort deut out to bring up from Earth to heaven those who were More than conquerors. There must to crusades Ever being fitted out for some part of gods Dominion Battles bloodless groan loss painless Angels of evil to to fought Down Aud fought out other rebellious worlds to be conquered worlds to to put to the Torch worlds to be saved worlds to be sunk worlds to be hoisted. Besides that in our own world there Aro Rig lit until against the wrong where we must Havo Tho heavenly military. That is what keeps a Christi us reformers do buoyant. So few Good men Ngai ust so May bad Muu so few churched Ugai ust so May grog shops so May Puro printing presses against so Many polluted printing presses and yet to Aro buoyant and courageous because Obilo to know Tomt the armies of Ovil in Tho world Aro larger in numb Ord than Tho Urray of truth Thero Aro cold still cohorts in Tho air fighting of our Side. I Havo not so much Faith in Tho urmy of the ground As i Havo in Tho army in the air. O god open our eyes that to May see them Tho military spirits that wont up from Earth to join to military spirits Bosforo Tho throne Joshua Ami Caleb Aud Gideon Aud David Aud Samson Aud Tho hundreds of Chris Tau warriors who on Earth fought with fleshly Arm and now having goo up of High arc coming Down Tho Hills of Eavou ready to Light among the invisible. Our departed Christian friends who had Trio military spirit in them sanctified Aro in Tho celestial army. Whether belonging to the artillery or the cavalry or Tho infantry i know not. I Only know that they Havo started out for Fleet service und courageous service and Overly sting service. Perhaps they May come this Way to fight on our Sido and drive sin and meanness and satan from All our hearts. Yonder they Aro coining coming. Did you hour them As they swept by Xvi planting Moin Phyall. But Eliut Aro our mathematical friends to do in the next world they found their Joy und Delight in mathematics. Thero was Toro poetry to them in Euclid than in Jolt Milton. Thoy wore a is passionately fond of mathematics As Plato who wrote Over his door Quot lot no our enter hero who is not us quasi ipod with what Uro Thoy doing now they Are Busy with figures yet no place in All the universe like heaven for figures. Numbers infinite distances Iuliu Ite calculations infinite if they want to uni arithmetic und Algebras and geometries Aud Irig Nom tries for All eternity. What Fields of space to to surveyed what magnitudes to measure what diameters what circumferences what triangles what Quaternions what epic Clouds what parallelograms what conic sections the didactic or. Dick said to really thought that Tho redeemed in heaven Spunt Somo of their time with the higher brunches of mathematics. So of our transferred and transported metaphysician. What Uro they doing now studying Tho human mind Only under belter circumstances than they used to study it. They used to study Tho mind sheathed in Tho Dull human body. Now Tho spirit unsheathed now they Aro studying the sword outside Tho scabbard. Havo you any doubt about what sir William Hamilton is doing in heaven or Eliut Jonathan Edwards is doing in heaven or the multitudes on Earth who had a passion for metaphysics sanctified by the Grace of god no difficulty in guessing. Metaphysics glorious metaphysics everlasting metaphysics. What Aro oar departed Christian friends who Uro explorers doing now exploring yet but with lightning locomotion with vision microscopic and telescopic at Tho same time. A continent at a glance u world in a second a planetary system in u Day. Christian John Franklin no Roro in disabled Erebus pushing toward Tho North pole Christian do Long no Roro trying to Freo blockaded a Cauuette from Tho ice Christian Livingstone Fornoro amid african malaria trying to make revelation of a dark continent but All of to icon in the twinkling of an Eye taking in that which was once . Mont Blanc scaled without alpe Stock Tho Coral Depths of Tho Ocean explored without a diving Bell Tho mountains Cuba Rod and opened without sir Humphrey Davy a safety lamp. Trio Library of the univer. What Aro on departed friends who found their chief Joy in study doing now studying yet. But instead of a few thousand volumes of n few shelves All Tho volumes of the universe open before them geologic or Lithologic conch logic botanic astronomic philosophic. No morn need of Leyden jars or Voltaic piles or electric batteries standing As they do face to fac with Tho facts of Tho universe. What Aro Tho historians doing now studying history yet but not Tho history of a few centuries of our planet Only but Tho history of the whole millenniums before Xenophon or to Podotas or Moses or Adam was born. History of one world history of All worlds. What no Pur departed Astrino fifty years ago. President Polk in the White House choir while in Lowell was doctor Ayer both were Busy for human weal one to govern and one to heal. And. As a president s Power of will sometimes depends on a liver Pill or. Polk took Ayer s pills i Trow for his liver 50 years ago. Ayers cathartic pills were designed to Supply a Model purgative to people who had so Long injured themselves with griping medicines. Being carefully prepared and their ingredients adjusted to the exact necessities of the bowels and liver i a a popularity was in Stanton a was. That this popularity has been maintained is Well marked in the medal awarded these pills at the worlds fair 1893. 50 years of cures. Mers doing studying ust Roomy yet but not through the Dull in in of earthly Observatory with one Stroko of Wing going right out to Jupiter and Mars und Mercury and Saturn and Orion und the pleiades overtaking mud passing the swiftest Comet in their flight. a Christi us.

What Uro our departed Christian chemists doing following ont their own science following ont and following out forever. Ciuco Thoy died they Havo solved 10,000 questions which puzzled Tho earthly Laboratory. They stand of to other Sido of the thin Wall of Electrio itys Tho thin Wall but seems to Divido the physic us from the spiritual world Tho thin Wall of electricity so thin the Wall that Ever mud anon it seems to be almost broken through broken through from Ono Sido by Telo pm Ohio and Tong Rupio apparatus broken through from Tho other Sido by Strugo influences which men in their Jug Nornoo Call spiritualistic manifestations. All but matter cleared up. They laughing at us As older Brothers will laugh at Brothers As they see us with contracted brow experimenting Aud experimenting Only wishing Thoy could show us to Way to open All Tho mysteries.

But what Uro the Meu of Tho Law Whu in this world found heir chief Joy in the Legal profession what Aro they doing now studying Law in n universe where everything is controlled by Law from Tho flight of humming Bird to flight of world Law not dry and hard Aud dredging but righteous and magnificent Law before which Muu and cd crib and seraph and archangel and god himself Bow. The Chain of Law Long enough to wind around Tho in densities und Infinity mud eternity. Chain of Law. What a place to study Law where ail Tho links of to Chain Are in the hand. What arc cur departed Christian friends who in this world had their Joy in Trio Healing Art doing now Busy at their old business. No sickness in heaven Bat plenty of sickness on Earth plenty of wounds in Tho different parts of Gou s glom Tuiofu to be healed Aud to be medicated. Those glorified souls coming Down not in Lazy doctors gig but with lightning locomotion. Yon cannot understand Why that patient got Well after All the skillful doctors had said to most die. Perhaps Abercrombie touched him Abercrombie who after May years doctor aug the bodies and Tho Soals of people in Scotland went tip to god in 1844. Perhaps Abercrombie Tonc cd him. I should not wonder if my old Friend or. John Brown who died in Edinburgh John Brown the author of Quot Rab and his friends a John Brown who was As Humble n Christian Asho was a skillful physician and world renowned author i should not wonder if to bad been Back again Aud again to see some of Bis old patients. Thieo who bail their Joy in Healing the sickness Aud Tho woes of Earth gone up to heaven Are Corno Forth again Lor Benignant medicament. Guiler sociality. But what Urc our friends who found their chief Joy in conversation Aud in sociality doing now in brighter conversation Thuro and in grander sociality. What a place Tovis Tiu where your next door neighbors arc Kings mud Queens Yon Yont selves kingly Aud Quee Lyl if they want to know More particularly about the first Paradise they have Only to go Over and Usk Adam. If they want to know How Tho Sou and the Moon halted they have Only to go Over and ask Joshua if they want to know Liow Tho storm pelted Sodom they Lyvo ouly to go Over and ask lot. If Thoy want to know More about to Urr Gauce of Hainan they have Only to go Over Aud ask Mordecai. If they want to know How Tho red sea boiled when it was Cloven they have ouly to go Over and ask Moses. If they want to know the particulars about the Bethlehem Advent they Havo Only to go Over Aud ask Tho serenading Angels who stood that Christmas night in Tho balconies of Crystal. If they want to know More of the particular a of the crucifixion they have ouly to go Over and ask who were personal spectators Whilo to mount wins crouched Aud the heavens got Black in to face at the spectacle. they want to know Moro about to sufferings of the scotch Covenanter they Havo Only to go Over Aud ask Andrew Melville. If they want to know More about the old time revivals they Havo Only to go Over to ask Whitefield and Wesley and Livingston and Fletcher Aud Nettleton Aud Kinney. Of what u place to visit inf if eternity Woro one minute Shorter it would not be Long enough for such sociality. Think of on friends who in this world were passion Tately fond of Flowers turned into Paradise. Think of our friends who were very fond of raising Superb fruit turned into Tho Orchard where each tree has 12 kinds of fruit at once mud bearing the fruit All the year round. What Are out departed Christi us friends doing in heaven those who of Earth Jimd their chief Joy in the gospel ministry they Are visiting their old congregations. Most of those old ministers Havo got their people a round them already. When i get to heaven As by the Grace of god i am destined to go to that place i will come and see Yon All. Yes i will come to Ull the people to whom i have administered in the gospel Aud to Tho millions of songs to whom through the kindness of the printing press i am permitted to preach every week in this land and in the uttermost parts of the Earth. I will visit them All. I give them fair notice. Our departed friends of Tho ministry Are now engaged in but delectable entertainment and undertaking.
