Thesewereredeemed from among men, being the first-fraits unto God and to theLamb."And in their mouth was found no guile : for they are without faultbeforethe throne of God."— Rev. xiv. 4, 5.HUMBLY seeking the guidance of God the ever-blesaedSpirit, I endeavoured last Sunday morning to direct yourattention to the precious truths set before us in the first and secondverses of this chapter. My heart and my mind were then tooexpectant, for heavenly provision seemed to multiply, andinstead of beino^ able to get through the points I enumerated, Icould speak only of the Reskrve, the associates of the Lambupon Mount Zion, and their Rejoicing in blessed and hallowedonenesA with Him. It is our privilege this morning, dependingupon the same grace, to seek for instruction in the variousparticulars which present themselves in the three successiveverses.in. — The regeneration set forth in the new song of theLamb's associates upon Mount Zion.IV. — Their redemption — " The hundred and fortv and fourthousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These wereredeemed from among men, being the first-fruits unto God andto the Lamb."
