Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? Or hast thou walked in the recesses of the deep? Have the gates of death been revealed unto thee? Or hast thou seen the gates of the shadow of death? Hast thou comprehended the earth in its breadth? Declare if thou knowest it all. Job 38: 16, 18. Life's mystery — deep, restless as the ocean, Hath surged and wailed for ages to and fro; Earth's generations watch its ceaseless motion, As in and out its hollow meanings flow; Shivering and fearing by that unknown sea. Let my soul calm itself, O Christ in Thee. — Harriet Beecher Stowe.

nUMA faculties cannot discern the spiritual realities of the hereafter. You are yet but a babe in the kingdom of God. You will one day know as you are known, and see as you are seen. We do not even know this world, how then can we know the world to come? We are surrounded by mystery here and now regarding the things of time and sense. We are between oceans of mystery as we live on our narrow neck of land. During the past generation science has made marvelous discoveries ; but every great discovery has simply revealed another sphere of mystery lying ever beyond. We push the limit of the known further out into the unknown sea, and the sea rolls still beyond into limitless regions of the unknown.

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever; for wisdom and might are His. He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that have understanding, He revealeth the deep and secret things; He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him. I thank Thee and praise Thee, O Thou God of my fathers. Amen. Dan. 2: 20, 22, 23.

^56 ROYAL MESSAGES 9-13 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation? Heb. i: 14.

For God shall deign To visit oft the dwellings of just men, Delighted, and with frequent intercourse Thither will send his winged messengers On errands of supernal grace. — John Milton.

JUTLL God's true children are kings and priests unto 2J. God. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. We are a preserved people for a reserved inheritance. In some sense the very angels are our ministering servants. Let us rejoice in our high honors and loyally perform our lowliest duties. When we return from some fierce conflict there will be some servant of our divine King to minister refreshment in the hour of need, as Melchizedek ministered to Abram. Fierce temptations will assail us, the blood of the battle stains us; but the hour of refreshment assuredly will come; angels will feed us

and will bear us up lest we dash ourselves against a stone, for they are all ministering spirits sent forth to minister to them who shall be heirs of salvation. Watched, guided, cheered, by heavenly messengers, are we not indeed kings and priests unto God?

Unrighteous witnesses rise up; they ask me of things I know not. They reward me evil for good, to the bereaving of my soul. Let them be as chaff before the wind, and the angel of Jehovah driving them on. Let their way be dark and slippery, and the angel of Jehovah pursuing them. Amen. Ps. 35: 11, 12, 5, 6.
