bodies, glorified and incorruptible, and in our souls pure and bolj,as he is holy. We shall behold the glory of God in the personof Christ, the eternal Son of the Father.There is a natural solicitude in the mind of man to know thecondition — the particular circumstances of this future state of existence. And there is just enough revealed in the Scripturesto keep it constantly excited, in those who are ever more anxiousto increase their knowledge, than careful to make good use of what they know. [But we all seek this knowledge of the future,with more or less eagerness, believers and unbelievers. Theywho reject Christianity, and are unenlightened by divine revela-tion, when they contemplate the dissolution of the body, say, inthe language of Job, "Man giveth up the ghost, and where ishe? " with little or no expectation of his future existence. Butthey who profess to believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, makethe same inquiry, with reference to the scene of his future life,and add the curious question, "In what body does he appear?"and what is the exact constitution of his renewed being?]It might be a sufScicLt answer to such an inquiry, that wecould not understand in our present imperfect state, any commu-nications of the knowledge which is reserved for the state of fullfruition in the world to come. "We now see through a glassdarkly." Our capacities are adapted to our condition of being.And the limited range of our minds while connected with ourcorruptible bodies, is a good reason why so little is revealed tous of that which is not essential to salvation, and which would,perhaps, if revealed, unfit us for the duties of the present life.Enough has been revealed, if we will rightly improve it.St. John says, "We know that when he," that is Christ, "shallappear, we shall be like him." And St. Paul gives a more par-ticular information, assuring us that "we shall be made like untohis glorious body." Our souls will again inhabit a body; such isour assurance, and such is our profession of faith. "We believein the resurrection of the body." "There is a spiritual body,"so say the Scriptures — like unto Christ's, — incorruptible and fullof glory. "Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God."
