THE CHART OF THE AGES
OUR announcement of the pamphlet giving three primary discourses on the Chart of the Ages (leatherette covers, 10 cents each) brought many orders, and fresh inquiries about the Charts for use in home gatherings and small audience rooms. We therefore again describe them.
They are five feet long, of heavy, tinted cloth, with spring roller, having painted thereon, by a good artist, the outlines, etc., of the divine plan of the ages, the same as represented by the diagram in the front of MILLENNIAL DAWN, VOL. I. Ordinarily it would cost about five dollars to prepare such charts; but by giving large orders in the dull seasons we can supply them at one dollar and fifty cents each,—and we prepay the expressage.
A careful study of the three discourses above mentioned will enable many of the friends of the truth to explain the chart and the divine plan there symbolized, to their friends and neighbors. Later on you will be able to present other features, finding the help you need in MILLENNIAL DAWN.
All the consecrated are “anointed to preach” the gospel; and all such may do it, according to their talents and opportunities, regardless of nationality, color or sex; for all such are “new creatures in Christ:” and in Christ there is neither male nor female, bond nor free. But let all things be done decently and in [Scriptural] order, which implies that, all other conditions being equal, the man should do the public speaking, as the Lord’s representative and mouthpiece.
But let none but the consecrated attempt to teach spiritual truths; for they have no commission or ordination of the Lord so to do. Moreover, others would do injury to themselves; for their fleshly minds would soon be puffed up, and they would ere long fall into the snares of the Adversary, as boastful, heady men-pleasers.
THE MUSICAL TOWER
WE have heard from many of their pleasure in connection with our last issue of the TOWER—”Zion’s Glad Songs of the Morning.” We would like it if these beautiful songs should become popular among Christian people generally. The singing of the truth is a good way to get it into the heads and hearts of God’s people. It is one way of preaching the gospel, which figuratively is called a “song:” “Thou hast put a new song into my mouth, even the loving kindness of our God.”
We thank God for the musical and poetic talents granted to some of his saints. (We esteem the collection represented in the MUSICAL TOWER, and in our hymn book, “Poems and Hymns of Millennial Dawn,” to be not only choice doctrinally, but also choice poetically.) We thank God for the privilege of serving the truth to his flock in poetry, as well as in prose. Let each one who receives be active in serving again, by song and printed page and word, to others who have not yet tasted the heavenly food provided now, as “meat in due season,” by our present Lord. If the whole body were an eye or foot or hand, where would be the symmetry? Nay, those members which even seem to be feeble and less important are all necessary, and may all do something in the service.—1 Cor. 13:17-24.
Extra copies of the musical TOWER will be supplied at the rate of five cents each, or twenty-five to one address for one dollar.
