We de she All accounts settled up in full before the incoming of the new year 1879. Continued from week quot it was in the Fortieth year of his age when his ii st revelation took place. Mohamet was passing the month in a i Maldon in the caa Ern of mount Hava endeavouring by fasting and prayer and solitary meditation to elevate Liis tho Glits to the contemplation of divine truth. It was on the night called by the arabs al Kader or the divine degree a night in which according to tie Koran Angels descend to Earth and a Abriel brings Down the decrees of Goth during that night there is peace on Earth quot and a holy it Piet i signs Over All nature until the rising of the morn. Quot As is Mohamet in tie silent watches of the night Lay wrapped in his Mantle he heard a voice calling upon him uncovering his head it flood of Light broke upon him of such intolerable s Vendor that he swooned away. On regaining his senses he beheld an Angel in a human form which approach King from a distance the splayed a Silken cloth covered wit i written characters. Read said the Angel. Quot i know not How to read replied Sto Hanu to. Read repeated the Angel in the name of the lord who has created al things who created Man from a clot of blood. Read in the name of the lost lii ii who taught Man the use of the pen who Sheds on his soul the Ray of knowledge what before he know not quot upon this Mohamet instantly Felt his understanding illumined with celestial Lilit and read what was written on the cloth which contained the divine decrees As after win is promulgated in tie Koran. When he had finish etl the perusal the heavenly messenger announced of in Mohamet of a Verity thou Art the in Onliest of god and i him his Angel Gabriel quot and Here the question comes up was this All imposition or was the deceiver himself altogether deceived Weslund say that neither of these suppositions seems to explain the matter in a perfectly satisfactory manner. Of the two the latter seems nearer the truth. What is termed Mono mania and which May be defined As that distorted View of any single subject which destroys the natural relation of that subject to All others was doubtless his state at this time in regard to the matter of a new revela tim. This intellectual distortion was no doubt increased by causes by his solitary fast and devotions tie epileptic attacks to which during his whole life he was subjected. Tha quot mysterious action and re action of milk and body upon each other by which the mind in a state of trance or half consciousness reproduces and fills out its own waking thoughts May not improbable have taken i lace in this instance. That lii he he wish etl he Dre Sineti the single Earnest desire of tie heart was realized in the vision and he came out of the dream believing it to a Certin extent to be a waking reality. That what has been sail will apply to All subset Juenst revelations received by Mohamet we have no idea a a Ision a Liili May take place in the experience of a Moli amet a Swedenborg or a la gala while the mind is perfectly adrift it in a state of ferment must be explained in a very i Gierent Way from one which takes place or rather is gotten up to meet an emergency or to fill out a preconceived system self deception May prevail even in this latter Case but to a much smaller degree than in the former. La it avas this first Ria elation so far As a Mohamet avas concerned altogether delusive such a Delusio n As involved no imputation upon his Avn uprightness and truthfulness of character to those Avo belief e that an accountable being is Ever a Holly left to the influence of external circumstances to the Mere sport of illusion the affirmative to these questions Avill present no difficulty. But to Avo think otherwise the difficulties attendant upon such a reply Are insuperable. This reply moreover is not justified by All the facts of the Mohamet avas a willingly deceived. Tie first false step Nind by in this a Hole matter a step Avrich he had Alre Aily taken was that of identifying self Avioli the anticipated revelation. To take that step previous to the reception of his i revelation avas Ayrong shaved that spirit of egotism Avrich involves moral that egotism Avrich placing self before All other men As the proper Channel of divine communication pre Liard self As a villing victim for delusion. He hesitated upon the vision it is True but avas easily persuaded to belief e in its reality. Vith his state of mind ave May say this a Sion could no doubt Haa e been repeated. While therefore Mohamet May readily be acquitted i this instance of the Gross imposture Avrich has been charged upon him he had really taken the step by a High he it Vas prepared for it. Beginning Avith this vision the Progress of the Neav Faith for the next thirteen years Avent on but so ally. Little Success and great risk accompanied most of thee forts for its Extension. Some avas made in the number of proselytes and Avith this increase the belief of the Prophet in his Mission avas strengthened and the enthusiasm of his spirit proportionately inflamed. This latter feeling avas probably heightened by the persecution to Avrich he was exposed by the losses and afflictions to which his Follo avers Avert sub acted by the ridicule sind opposition which finally drove him and them As fugitives from his Lui Tive City. This first season of Isizha Metanis is distinguished by one remarkable fact by its resemblance in tie Fiat int endurance of its Fol Loaa ers to the spirit of the Neav testament. Not Only Avert the a precepts of the gospel so far As they Avert kno Avn ado Teil but also the mole by our lord and the apostles in making Coria erts. Such avas the in quot Mecca for the first four a ears Between the old and the Neav religion tie purity of the one the forbearance Anil meekness of its Fol Loaa ers exhibiting it their greatest deformity the idolatry of the other a the intolerance Anil Vin dicta a spirit of its disciples. in one City tie pro Ilu t fled to another made no attempt himself and encouraged none of his disciples to enter upon a course of Reid nation. Thus far adversity Lead failed in bringing out the Alloy mingled Avith tie Nav system. The first flush of Prosperity did this effects Billy. Rivison and argument and , had failed. Fugitives from their Homes they Avert Recenia a a Avioli open firms As sufferers for the truth in Medina and this accession of strength at a me suggested the sword As the great instrument of a Ona in tion. Quot let All Avo promulgate my Faith quot so runs tie inspired direction quot enter into no argument but slay All Avo refuse the fiame Long pent up at Lengli burst Forth in All its fierceness. This firs trea elation of Force tis the great Argun ent avas Follo aved by a treacherous assault a luring the sacred season upon sole of his opponents this being Folly aved by a special Rea elation to justify tie Prophet in taking his Hare of the plunder secured by the a in tory. Sproha Metanis became a religious state a state held together quot by the Cohesia Princi Leof Universal this avas justified on the ground that those Avo Avert robbed and Muri Lerey Avert the enemies of god and ought therefore to be exterminated. Adversity Tryeth the spirit of a Man but its quot m d is the same opposite Prosperity Oft thing and much More effectual la. To Hiqimet Avit stood tie former but the latter in its first assault obtained a com a Lete a Victory. From this joint the course of the Prophet in a moral respect avas do Avn Stu Ltd. Gleams of past integrity during his subsequent career frequently make their appearance so far As regarded his Intercourse Avith his Follo avers. Yet the general Tenor of that life is Sug Hestia a of the most Mournful reflection especially so Ashen ave remember hoax that life quot began. Falsehood Seii sunlit a ferocity and bigotry constitute the dark list by Avrich this period is characterized. The religious feeling perverted and polluted to the Ija Sest Pur oses merely Gaa e a Darker aspect to these crimes excusing them and sanctifying them As living practice in the service of the creator. He Avo can regard the last years of this hero prop Liet As he has been Calliel Avith any other feelings than Liose of pity struggling Avith those of and sleep moral loathing must himself be sadly deficient in of Jii ritual Perc edition. As a youth kindly Recenia ing the fear rays of imperfect truth in his reach ave regard him As ail object of the deep est interest. During his Mei Clian i life a c could Pray that the pure Light of a pure christianity Avrich he Nea or Sei ins to have enjoyed might Haa e been imparted. Quot during his season of religious reverie and inquiry feelings of interest deepen ave look anxiously but in vain fun that teachable and Humble spirit which a ii with his imperfect Light Avold have kept Liim Safe. Beyond that period there is a season of darkness of doubt of suspicion one in a Vicli Large allo Avance must be Maile and plausible excuses of ered to Keeys him Clear from imputation of falsehood and deception. But this season Lias an end. There is a Point Beyo Nii Avrich excuse is impossible. Hoax Long before then he had begun to fall ave know not. We merely behold the plunge the dept i of moral derail action opening before him in his first deviation from rectitude merely Noav that Avien he fell he fell quot like quot Lucifer never to Rise his after life avas a continued series of outward Sucee uses luit in the truest and fullest sense of the Avord he avas ruined.
