CHRISTLY SPIRIT— SPIRITUAL SIGHT BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR

I counsel Thee to buy of me . . . eye-salve to anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see. Rev. 3: 18.

I saw the Power, I see the love, once weak Resume the Power ; and in this word, " I see " Lo, there is recognized the Spirit of both That, moving o'er the spirit of man unbinds His eye, and bids him look. — Robert Browning.

CHE RE is a sense in which all the higher truths are obscure and mystical^ whether they are truths of science, art, or religion. ature gives up her secrets only to her ardent worshippers. To see her beauties our eyes must be trained ; to hear her hidden harmonies our ear must be cultivated. To appreciate the Alps we must have mountains in our brains; to enjoy the sea we must have oceans in our souls. So to see God, we must have the appropriate faculty, purity of heart; to understand his teaching, we must have devotion to his will. They who do his will shall know his doctrine. The words of Christ were seed thoughts, whose germination has only begun; much as they have developed, they will develop vastly more in the ages to come. And more and more both here and in eternity we shall understand the hidden mysteries of Christ's words, as we open our hearts to his love.

Lord, that I may receive my sight. Luke 18: 41. O Lord

I have heard the report of Thee and am afraid. The mountains saw Thee and were afraid — the sun and moon stood still in their habitation, at the light of Thine arrows as they went, at the shining of Thy glittering spear. Amen. Hab. 3: 2, 10, II.

166 ROYAL MESSAGES 6-14 Moreover in a pillar of cloud Thou leddest them by day; and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light in the way wherein they should go. eh. 9: 12.

When Israel of the Lord beloved, Out from the land of bondage came, Her father's God before her moved An awful guide in smoke and flame. Thus present still though now unseen, When brightly shines the prosperous day, Be thought of Thee a cloudy screen. To temper the deceitful ray ! Ah oh ! when gathers on our path In shade and storm the frequent night. Be Thou, long-suffering, slow to wrath, A burning, and a shining light. —Sir Walter Scott.

ISRAEL had divine leadership in the wilderness. The symbol of God's presence was cloud by day and fire by night. God always adapts the manifestations of his presence to the special needs of his people. It is true still that God goes before the nations of the earthy if they will but hear his voice and see his hand. God has gone before this nation during the past few years^ in leading us out into the Pacific, and into the Orient, as truly as he went of old before Israel with pillar of cloud by day and fire by night. He still goes before the nations in pillar and cloud. May we have eyes to see and ears to hear his gracious and divine presence !

Jehovah, Thou hast been favorable unto Thy land. Show us Thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, and grant us Thy salvation. Amen. Ps. 85: i, 7.
