The Scranton (iwwe. 1 1 Dog This Yes Q. It is my firm conviction that Saturday is the Sakbath Dy and. therefore, the day to be observed as a holy day, or rest day, unto the Lod. But I am greatly perplexed over the circumstances developing in a trip around the world from east to we3t, for in doing so, a whole day is lot somewhere on the trip, and if it should happen that Saturday is that day, there v.ojld be one Sabbath Day that would sTip away unobserved.

Now, should like for you to tell me what could be done in order to comply with the command to keep the Sabbath Day holy? How could I keep a day holy when that day was lost somewhere on the voyage? (T. A. Answer. Perhaps if one's conscience were unduly pained by such a harrowing experience the thiug to do would be to circumnavigate the globe in the opposite direction and gain a day thereby, timing the journey so that Saturday would be the day recovered. This would be an excellent method, as it would afford one ample time to reflect over the Scripture teachings on this subject of the Sabbath day and doubtless would be the means of casting a greater degree of illumination on a command that should be recognized by all Bible students as applying to the Jews and not to the Christians.

Answer. The Savior's as contained in Matthew six. 11. have been construed to mean that little children go direct to heaven, whereas the Mas ter was teaching that only those of His followers who would develop the child-like dispositions of meekness, trust and faith couid enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Matthew xviii.

sets forth the same lessou more fully. A moment's reflection on the general teachings of the Bible will be sufficient to enable any one to realize that heavenly promises have been made only for the believers, "the over comers." the called and chosen and faithful." (Revelation xvii. 14. It is evident then that children are not called to a heavenly inlier itance. How could they believe, and be overcou'ers and saints? Little children as well as all the world, aside from the saintly overconiers.

The Scriptures declare that God restsd on the seventh day after having devoted six days to the work of creation. (Genesis ii, 2, 3.) Again, the Apostle says, Hebrews iv, 10, "For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His." How did God rest from His works when actually He did none of the creative works, as it was all accomplished by the Lord Jesus, as we read "For by Him (Christ) were all things ere-; ted, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether ihy be throres, or or principalities, or all things were created by Him and for Him?" (Colossians 16.) is true, according to thi-Scriptures, that "all things wee made by Him: and without Ilitn was noi anyth'ng made that was made" The Son was the Father's agency or rhati nel through whom all the creative wnr! was accomplished and thus the Heav enly (''aiher did none of the acini' work.

What will bo the physical condition of the earth at the second con ing of Christ? (W.

Answer. The word "coming" in the Scriptures, as applied tn the Lord's see ond advent, would in many more properly translated from the Greek by the word presence, for that is the real significance of the (J reek word parouxia. In Matthew xxiv. the Lord explained that as it was in the days of Noah, so also it would be in the days of the prrxence (not of the Son of man. The thought is that as the people in the time of Noah were going about engaged in the or tJiuary affairs of life, so it would lie In the days of the presence of the Lord Jesus.

then His presence would be revealed unto all people. During the thousand years of the Lord's presence the physical conditions of the earth will be undergoing a gradual transformation, until by the close of the days of His presence the whole earth will have be-tht anion of Eden.
