Wasni Sntos Juno 2h.�?All people who Are trying to do Good will find this discourse of or. Tul Mugo inspiring As Well us unique. His text was genesis Xii a lie was a mighty Hunter before the lord. A in our Day. Hunting is a sport it ill Tho lauds mid the times infested with wild beasts it was a mutter of life or death with Tho people. It was very different from going out on a sunshiny afternoon with a Patent Breech loader to shoot redbirds on the Flats when Pollux Aud Achilles and Diouri eds went out to Clear the Lund of Lions and tigers und bears. My text sets Forth Nimrod As a Liero when it presents him with Broad shoulders and shaggy apparel and Sunbow cd face Aud Arm bunched with muscle a a mighty Hunter Bosforo Tho lord. A i think housed the How and Tho arrows with great Success Prancl icing Archery. I have thought if it is Sacii a grand thing Aud such a Bravo tiling to Clear wild beasts out of a country if it is not a better Anil braver thing to limit Down and destroy Elioso great evils of society Eliut Aro stalking Tho land with Ficco Eye and Blomley Paw and Sharp Tusk mid Quick Spring. I Havo wondered if Oliero is not such a thing us gospel Archery by which those who have been flying from Tho truth May be captured for god and heaven. The lord Jesus in his Sermon used the Art of Angling for an illustration a lion lie said a i will make Yon Fishers of and so i think 1 have authority for using Hunting As an illustration of gospel truth Ami i Pray god that Thorn May lie Many a Man today who will 1 Regin to study gospel Archery of whom it May after a while to said a the was a mighty Hunter Bosforo the lord. A convention. How much awkward Christian work Tipiere is Dioio in the world How Many Good people Here Are who drive souls away from Christ instead of bringing them to him All their lingers Aro thumbs religious plunderers who upset More Trinu they right their gun Lias a crooked barrel and Kirks As it goes off. They Are like a stupid Colorado who goes along with skillful Hunters. At the very moment when he ought to Lio most quiet to is crackling in older or falling Over a log and Friglet of aug away Tho game. How few Christian people Havo Over Learned Tho lesson of which i read at the beginning of this service Liow that Tho lord Jesus Christ at to Well went from talking about a cup of water to to most practical religious truths which won Tho woman s Sony for god. Jesus in Tho wilderness was breaking Broud to Tho people. I think it was Good bread. It was very Light bread and the yeast had done its work thoroughly. Christ after to Hail broken the bread said to Tho people Quot beware of the yeast or of the leaven of Tho so natural a transition it was and How easily they All understood him i bin How few Christian people Oliero arc who understand How to fasten the truths of god and religion to Tho souls of Moil i Truman Osborne one of Tho evangelists who went through this country years Ugo had a wonderful Art in Tho right direction. came to my fathers Lionso one Day Aud while to Scro All seated in i lie room to said a or. Talmage arc All your Childrous christians Quot father said. A by a is All but do Wir t. A then Truman Osborne looked Down into the fireplace and began to Tell a Story of a storm that Camo on Tho mount aids and All the sheep were in Tho fold let there was Otic Lamb outside that perished in the storm. Had to looked to in the Eye i should have been angered when lie told that Story. But to looked into the fireplace and it was so pathetically and beautifully Dono that i never found any pc co until i was Suro i was inside Tho fold where Tho other sheep were. Tho archers of Olden times studied their Art. They Scro very precise in the matter. The old books gave special directions As to Bow on Archer should go and As to what an Archer should do. Iio must stand erect and firm his left foot a Little in nov Auto of the right foot. With his left hand lie must Lake hold of Tho Bow in Tho Middle and then with Tho to lire fingers and Tho thumb of his right hand to should Lay hold of the Arrow Aud affix it to the string so precise was Tho direction Given. But How Clumsy to Aro about religious work How Little skill and rare to cd Crisel How often our arrows miss the Mark Oli that there Scro More institutions established in All the towns and cities of our land where men might learn Tho Art of doing Good studying spiritual Archery Aud known As a mighty Hunters before Tho Long Quot a Choice of weapon. In Tho first place if Yon want to to effectual in doing Good Yon must to very Suro of your weapon. There was something very fascinating about the arc cry of Olden times. Perhaps you do not know what tiny could do with the Bow Aud Arrow. Why Tho chief Battles fought by the English Plata Geets Scro with the Long Bow. They would take the Arrow of polished Wood Aud Feather it with the plume of a Bird mid then it would Fly from the How string of plaited silk. The Broad Fields of agile ont and Solvay Moss and Neville a Cross heard Tho loud thrum of the archers Bow string. Now. My Christian friends to have a mightier weapon than that. It is Tho Arrow of Tho gospel it is a Sharp Arrow it is a straight Arrow it is feathered from Tho Wing of the Dove of gods spirit it flies from a Bow nmd6 out of the Wood of Tho Cross. As far As i can estimate or calculate it bus brought Down 400,000.000 songs. Paul knew How to bring the notch of that Arrow on to that Bow string and its Whir was heard through the corinthian Heaters and through the courtroom until Tho Knees of Felix knocked together. It was that Arrow that stuck in lathers heart when he cried out Quot of my sins of my sins Quot if it strike a Man in the Bead it kills his scepticism if it strike a Man in the Heel it will turn his step if it strike him in the heart he throws up his hands As did the emperor Julian of old when wounded in the Battle crying Quot of galilean thou has conquered Quot in the armory of the Earl of Pem broke there Are bid Corse lets which show that the Arrow of Tho English used to go through Tho breastplate through Tho body of Tho Warrior and out through Trio backplate. What a Symbol of that gospel which is sharper than n two edged sword piercing to the dividing asunder of body and soul Aud of Tho joints Aud marrow would to god to had Roro Fuith in that gospel the humblest mail if to had enough Faith in it a told bring 100 songs to Jesus perhaps 500. Just in proportion As this age seems to believe less and less in it i Belicov More and More in it. Liat arc men about that they will not a Rcpt their own deliverance there is nothing proposed by men that can do anything Liko this gospel Tho religion of Ralph Waldo Emerson was Tho philosophy of icicles Tho religion of Theodore Parker was a sirocco of the desert covering up the soul with dry Sand Tho religion of Renan was Tho Romanco of believing nothing the religion of the Huxley and Tho spencers merely a Pedestal of which human philosophy sits shivering in Tho night of the soul looking up to Tho stars offering no help to Tho nations that Crouch and groan at the base. Tell to where there is one Man who Lias rejected that gospel for another who is thoroughly satisfied Aud helped and con touted in Liis scepticism and i will Miiko the car tomorrow and ride Coo Miles to Bee him. Tho full Power of Tho gospel has not yet been touched. As a sports Man throws up his head and catches the Ball flying through the air just so easily will this gospel after awhile catch this round world flying from its orbit and bring it Back to the heart of Christ give it full swing nil it will Pardon every sin heal every wound cure every trouble emancipate every slave and Ransom every nation. Be Christian men and women who go out this afternoon to do Christian work As you go into Tho sunday schools Tho Lay preaching stations and the penitentiaries and Trio asylums i want you to feel that Yon Bear in your hand a weapon compared with which the Light aug has no Speed Aud avalanches have no heft and the thunderbolts of heaven Liao no Power it is the Arrow of the omnipotent gospel. Take careful aim. Pull Tho Arrow Clear Back until Tho head strikes Tho bowl then let it Fly i Aud May Tho slain of the lord be Maul Good Llam plug ground. Again if you want to to skillful in spiritual Archery you must Hunt in a frequented and secluded places. Why does Tho Hunter go three or four Days in Tho Pennsylvania forests or Over Raquette Lake into Tho wilds of the Adirondacks it is the Only Way to do. Tho Deer Are shy and one a bang Quot of Tho gun clears Tho Forejt. From Tho California stage Yon see As you go Over Tho Plains lure and there a Coyote trotting along almost within Range of Tho gun sometimes quite within Range of it. No one cares for that it is worthless. Tho Good game is hidden Aud secluded. Ever a Hunter knows that. So Many of Tho souls that will be of most Worth for Christ and of most value to Tho Church arc secluded. They do not come in your Way. You will Havo to go where they Are. Yonder Thi Aro Down in that cellar yonder the Aro no in that Garret. Far away from Tho door of any Church the gospel narrow has not been pointed at them. Tho tract distributor and City missionary sometimes catch a glimpse of to lieu As a Hunter through the Trees get a momentary sight of a Partridge or a Roebuck. The trouble is to Aro waiting for Tho game to come to us. To no not Good Hunters. We Are standing in some Street or Highway expecting that Tho timid Antelope will come up and eat out of our hands. We Aro exp acting that Tho Prairie fowl will Light on our Church Steeple. It is not their habit. If the Church should wait 10,000,000 of years for Tho world to come in and be saved it will wait in vain. Tho world will not come. What Tho Church wants now is to lift its feet from damask ottomans and put them in Tho stirrups. We want a pulpit on wheels. Tho Church wants not so much cushions As it wants saddlebags Aud arrows. To have got to put aside the go u and kid gloves Aud put on the a uting shirt. To Havo been fishing so Long in Tho Brooks that run under the Shadow of the Church that the fish know Lis that they avoid Tho Hook and Csc Upo As soon As to come to Tho bunk while yonder is upper Saranac and big tappers Lake where the first swing of the gospel net would break it for the multitude of the fishes. Oliero is outside work to be done. What is that i Sec in the Backwoods it is a tout. Tho Hunters have made a Clearing and camped out. What do they care if they Liao wet feet or if they Havo nothing but a Pine Branch for a Pillow or for Tho Northeast storm if a Moose in the darkness Steps into the Lako to drink they hear it right away. If a Loon cry in the Moonlight they hear it. So in tic service of god to Lyvo exposed work. We have got to Camp out and rough it. We arc putting All our care on the people who Como to our churches. What Are to doing for the thousands upon thousands that do not come Havo they no souls Are they sinless that they need no Pardon Aro Oliero no dead in their houses that they need no Comfort arc they Cut off from god to go into eternity�?110 Wing to Bear them no Light to cheer them no Welcome to Greet them i Hoar today surging up from the lower Depths a groan that comes through our Cli Risteau assemblages Aud through our Beautiful churches and it blots out All this Sceno from my eyes today As by the mists of a great Niagara for Tho dash and Tho plunge of these great torrents of life dropping Down into the fathomless and thundering abyss of suffering and woe. I sometimes think that just As god blotted out Tho churches of Thyatira and Corinth Aud Laodicea because of Ali or sloth and solidity he will blot out american and English christianity and raise on Tho ruins a stain Art Wideawake missionary Church Flint can Tako the full moaning of that command a go into All the world and preach the gospel to every creature. A archers. I remark further if Yoa want to sue need in spiritual Archery Yon must have courage. If Tho Hunter stand with trembling hand or shoulder that flinches with fear instead of his taking the Catamount the Catamount takes him. What Weld become of the Greenlander if when out Hunting for to Bear he should stand shivering with terror on an iceberg what would Liao become of do Chaillou and Livingstone in the african Thicket with a faint heart and a weak knee when a Panther comes with in 20 paces of Yon a Mil ulms its co on in and it lies a a netted for Tho fearful apr Iii. A a Early there a courage o to spiritual archers there arc great monsters in iniquity prowling All around about the Community. Shall to not of Tho strength of god go Forth and combat them to not Only need morn heart but More Backbone. What is tin Church of god that it should fear to look in the Eye any transgression Oliero is Tho Bengal Tiger of drunkenness that prowls around and instead of attacking it How Many of us Hido under the Church Pew or the communion Tablet there is so much invested in it we Are afraid to assault it millions of dollars in barrels in vats in spigots in corkscrews Zugin palaces with mar Bio floors und italian top tables and chased Ico coolers Aud in Tho Sti Johnino Aud the logwood and the tartaric acid and Trio Aux Tomica that go to make up on a pure Quot american drinks. I looked with wondering yes in the Quot Heidelberg it is the great liquor of Germany which is said to hold 800 Hogsheads of wine and Only three times in 100 years it has been tilled. But us i stood and looked at it i said to myself a that is nothing�?800 Hogsheads. Why on american hols 2,500,000 barrels of Strong drinks und to keep 200,000 men with nothing to do but to Sec that it is of to attack this great monster of intemperance und Tho Kindred monsters of fraud and a Cloan Ziess requires Yon to rally All your Christian courage. Through the press through Tho pulpit through the platform you must assault it. Would to god that All our american christians would band together not for crack brained fanaticism but for holy Christian Reform. I think it wu3 in 1703 that there went out from Lucknow India under Tho Sovereign Tho greatest Hunting party that was Ever projected. There were 10,000 armed men in that Hunting party. There Scro camels and horses and elephants. On some princes Rode and Royal ladies under exquisite housings and 500 coolies waited upon the train and Trio desolate places of India were inv Udud by this excursion mid the Rhinoceros the Deer and elephant fell under Tho stroke of Saber and Bullet i after awhile Tho party brought Back trophies Worth 50,000 rupees having left Trio wilderness of India ghastly with Tho slain bodies of wild beasts. Would to god that instead of Here and there a Straggler going out to Light the so great monsters of iniquity in our country Tho million membership of on churches would band together and hew in Twain these great crimes that Mako Tho Laud frightful with their Roar and Uro fattening upon Tho bodies Aud souls of immortal men i who is ready for such a party As that who will to a mighty Hunter for Tho lord Tho game. I remark Agabiti if you want to be successful ill spiritual orc cry you need not Only to bring Down Tho game but bring it in. I think one of the most Beautiful pictures of Thorwaldsen is his it represents a sportsman coming Home and standing under a Grapevine. To has a staff Over his shoulder and of the other end of that staff Are Hung a Rabbit Ami a Brace of Birds. Every Hunter brings Home the game. No one would think of bringing Down a Reindeer or whipping up a Stream for Trout and letting them lie in Tho Woods. At eventide Trio Camp is adorned with Trio treasures of the Forest beak and Fin and Antler. If you go out to Hunt for inuit real souls not Only bring them Down under Trio narrow of Tho gospel but bring them into the Church of god the Encampment we Liuvao pitched this Side of the skies. Fetch them in. Do not let them lie out in the open Field they need our prayers and sympathies and help that is Tho meaning of Trio Church of god help. O pc Hunters for the lord not Only bring Down the game but bring it in 1 if Mithridates liked Hunting so Well that for seven years he never went indoors what enthusiasm we to arvo who Are Hunting i r immortal songs if Domitri Iunius Pinr timid Archery until he could stand a buy Down in the roman Amphitheater with a hand out the fingers like that and then Tho King could shoot an narrow Between the fingers without wounding them to what Drill and what practice ought not we subject ourselves in order to become spiritual archers and a mighty Muters before the lord a but let me say you will never work any better ram you Pray. Tho old archers took the Bow put one end of it Down beside the foot elevated the other end Aud it was the Rule that the Bow should be just the size of the Archer if it were just itis Sthen to would go into the tattle with Confidence. Let to say that your Power to project Good in the world will correspond exactly to your own spiritual stature. In other words the first thing in preparation for Christian work is personal consecration. Of. For a closer walk with god a Calm and heavenly Frame a Light to Shino upon the Road that leads me to the Lamb. I am sure that Oliero arc some Here who at some time have been bit by the gospel Arrow. You Felt Tho would of that conviction and you plunged into the world deeper just As Tho Stag when the hounds arc after it plunges into screen Lake expecting in that Way to escape. Jesus Chris is of your k today Imp Iii it maa 11 u. In Wrath but in mercy. O pc chased and panting souls hero is the Stream of gods mercy and salvation where Yon May Cool your thirst Stop that Chase of sin today. By t a red Fountain that leaped from the heart of my lord i bid you Stop is there in All Thi Lionso anyone who can refuse the Olfier that comes from the heart of the dying 3�u of go a Why do you know that there Are in Tho banished world souls that for that offer you get today would fling the Crown of Tho universe at your feet if they possessed it but they went out on Tho mountains the storm took them and they died. There is in a Forest in Germany a place they Call Tho a Deer leap a two crags about 18 feet apart Between them n fearful chasm. This is called Tho Quot Deer leap because onco a Hunter was on the track of a Deer. It came to one of these crags. There was no escape for it from the Pursuit of the Hunter and in utter despair it gathered itself up and in the death agony attempted to jump across. Of Courso it fell and was dashed on Tho rocks far beneath. Hero is a path to heaven. It is Plain it is Safe. Jesus Marks it out for every Man to walk in. But Here is n Man who says wont walk in that path. 3 continued on fourth Page Independent order of me emotes in North America. The objects and Aims. Information of interest to Temperance workers and those seeking a Refuge from the temptations of Strong drink. The More important object of this association is Mutual Benefit in the exercises of Temperance fortitude and Justice securing to its membership sympathy and Relief in times of sickness und distress and in the event of death the decent Observance of the necessary funeral obsequies and is based upon and seeks the Extension of the principles of total abstinence from All intoxicating drinks.
