Crystallized Carbon

"Immediatly I became in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sitting upon the throne; and he that sat was like in appearance to a jasper and a sardine stone;..." Revelation 4:3 "A throne, then, is set in heaven, and One sits upon the throne; with a certain necessary mystery as to Him, for here is One dwelling in the light unapproachable, who in His innermost glory no man hath seen or can see. Yet there are images which convey to us what we may reali...

Leviticus 11 - Clean or Unclean

The Numerical Bible Volume I, Genesis - Deuteronomy, Pages 315-320Leviticus 11What we eat we are. SUBDIVISION 2. (Chapter xi-xv) Putting a difference. WE come now to look at the other side of our associations. We have seen how God has in grace associated us with His dear Son. Thus belonging to the priestly family, and brought near to God, fellowship with Him must mean dissociation from all that is contrary to His mind and will. Linked with God upon the one side, we ...

Chapter 23 - The Ministry of Death

If death has then the place which we have seen it has, it is no longer a strange thing to hear of a "ministration of death"; nay, it is rather just what we should have reason to expect, that God would take up the fact of it, and of the condemnation of man which it involves, and press it home upon the hearts and consciences of men in some distinct and positive way. We should expect from His goodness, that He would not be content in letting the fact speak for itself, but would g...

Chapter 24 - The Purification and Blessing of the Earth

Let us now seek to arrive at some definite conclusion as to the prophetic future portrayed in the Old Testament. It is quite necessary to do so in order properly to understand the predictions of coming judgment which are scattered through its pages. First then, the horizon is earthly, and extends neither to heaven nor to hell. It is recognized that, the souls of the departed exist indeed in sheol, but that it is as yet a land of darkness, unexplored and little known to liv...

Chapter 25 - Old Testament Shadows

We have mentioned it as an apparent contradiction to our view of the limited range of the Old Testament future, that the belief of the people plainly went beyond it. Not only does the epistle to the Hebrews tell us that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob confessed themselves pilgrims upon earth, and looked for a "heavenly country"; but also the very word used by our Lord for hell - Gehenna - seems to have been in use among the people before our Lord’s time in that very way.* This impl...

Chapter 26 - The Ages of Eternity - The Question Stated

We are again stopped, upon the threshold of the New Testament. Stopped, by the need of considering a question of the utmost importance to our present subject. It is gravely asked whether we have any proper word for eternity in Scripture, in the sense, that is, in which we ordinarily understand the word "eternity." For even this the eccentricity of a few learned men would take from us by an etymological sleight of hand which is scarcely creditable to them. "Eternal" is "œviter...

Chapter 27 - The New Testament Solution to the Question

In the New Testament we find aion over and over again translated "world," and not badly, if we only think of worlds in time instead of worlds in space, but more intelligible to us if rendered "age." The "end of the world" in Matt. xiii., xxiv, xxviii. 20 is thus in all these places "the completion of the age." In Heb. ix. 26, it is "the completion of the ages." So we have "this world" and "the world to come," "the children of this world," "the princes of this world," and simil...
