from a world of indescribable glory, to a world marred
, and blighted with sin, darkened with the shadow of death
and the curse. He permitted Him to leave the bosom of
His love, the adoration of the angels, to suffer shame,
insult, humiliation. hatred, and death:'-S.C., p. 14.

NOTE: "Through transgression, ,the sons of man be-
come subjects of Satan. Through fa.ith in the atoning
sacrifice of Christ, the sons of Adam may become the sons
of God. By assuming human nature, Christ elevated
humanity. FaIlen men arE! placed where, through connec-
tion with Christ, they may indeed become worthy of the
name 'sons of God.' Such love is without a parallel.
Children of the heavenly King! Precious promise! Theme
for the most profound' meditation! The matchless love of
God for a world 'that did not love Him! The thought has
a subduing power upon the soul, and brings the mind into
captivity to the will of God. The more we study the
divine character in the light of the cross, the more we see
mercy, tenderness, and forgiveness blended with equity
and justice, and the more clearly we discern innumerable
evidences of a love that is infinite, and a tender pity sur-
passing a mother's yearning symp.athy for her wayward
child."-S.C., pp. 17, 18. d

says. All that he possessed. he invested in the ark. As-
he began to construct that immense boat on dry ground,
multitudes came from every direction to see the strange
sight,. and to hear the earnest fervent· words of the singu-
lar preacher. Every blow struck upon the ark was a.
witness to the people."-P.P., p. 95.
7. What was the result of Noah's preaching? 1 Peter

the same repeated in our day? WhiJ.e God's servants are
giving the message that the end of all things is at hand,
the world is absorbed in a:nusements and pleasure-seek-
ing. There is a constant 'round of excitement that causes

life of prayer. Wherever he pitched his tent, close beside
it was set up his altar. calling all within his Jencampment
to the morning and the evening sacrifice. When his tent
was removed, thg altar remained. In following years,
there were those among the roving Canaanites who re-
ceived instruction from Abraham. and wheneveJ; one of

1 King 19 :10:
NOTE: "Alas, how had the glory of Israel departed!
Never before had the chosen people of God fallen so low
into apostasy. Of 'the prophets 0 Baal' t ere were tfour
hundred and fifty,' besides four hundred 'prophets of the
groves.' Nothing short of the miracle.-working power of
God could preserve the nation from utter destruction.
Israel had voluntarily separated herself from Jehovah; yet
the Lord in compassion still yearned after those who had
been led into sin, and He was about to send to them one
of the mfghtiest of His prophets. through whom many
were to be led back to allegiance to the God of their
, fathers."-P K., p. 116. .
8 What message did Elijah bear? 1 King 18:21.
NOTE: "What astonishing deception and fearful
blindness had, like a dark cloud. covered Israel! This
blindness and apostasy. had not clo.sed about, them sud-
.denly; it had come upon them gradually, as they 'had not
heeded the word of reproof and warning which the Lord
had sent to them because of their pride and their sins.
And now, in this fearful crisis, in· the presence of the
idolatrous priests and the apostate king, they remained
neutral. If God abhors one sin above another, of which
His people are guilty, it is doing nothing in case of an
emergency. Indifference and neutrality in a religious crisis
is regarded of God as a grievous crime, and equal to the
-very worst type of hostility against God."-Vol. 3, p. 280.

8
I!. Wha is to be proclaimed €-l';pecially in the
last days? Isa. 56:1·8; 58:12-14.
NOTE: "I canot too strongly urge all our church-
members, all who are true missionaries, all who believe the
third angel's message. all who turn away their feet from
the Sabbath, to consider the message of the fifty-eighth
chapter of Isaiah. The work of beneficence enjoined in
this chapter is the work that God requires His people to
do at this time. It is a work of His own appointment. We
p..re not left in doubt as to where the message applies, and
the time of its marked fulfilment. . . . God's memorial, the
seventh-day Sabbath, the sign of His work in creating the
world, has been displaced by the man of sin God's people
have a special work to do in repairing the breach that has
been made in His law."-Vol. 6, p. 265.

.around them to hear from their lips the works that the
Lord had wrought. His voice was the first sound that
many had ever heard, His name was the first word they

.{. Was the lost sheep able to find its way back to the
fold alone? Did the sheep know its lost condition?

Christ. the rabbis expressed. their displeasure. 'This man
sinners,' they said, 'and eateth with them.' By

ciate with the sinful and vile, and was insensible to their
wickedness. The rabbis had een disappointed in' Jesus.
Why was it tha one who c aimed so lofty a c arac er,
did not mingle with them, and follow their methods of
teaching? Why did He go about so

deserved."-C.O.L., p. 185.

found my sheep which was lost,' .So when a wanderer
is found by the great Shepherd of the sheep, heaven and
earth unite in thanksgiving and rejoicing."-C.O.L., p. 189.
7. Who is also represented by the lost sheep?
NOTE: "By the lost sheep Christ represents not only
the individual sinner, but the one world that has apos-
tatized, and has been ruined by sin. . . . Christ the loved
Commander in the heavenly courts, stooped from His high
