What peaceful, happy conditions will prevail in the next world as compared with those of this life?


"They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; f or they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord,
and their offspring with them." "The sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child
shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the
earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." Isa. 65: 23; 11: 8, 9.
A PAIR of very chubby legs
Encased in scarlet hose,
A pair of little stubby boots
With rather doubtful toes,
A little kilt, a little coat,
Cut as a mother canAnd, lo! before us strides in state
The future's "coming man."
Ah! blessings on those little hands,
Whose work is yet undone,
And blessings on those little feet,
Whose race is yet unrun.
And blessings on the little brain,
That has not learned to plan.
Whate'er the future holds in store,
God bless the "coming man."

What great exchange has been wrought for us in Christ?
By what should we test, or prove, all doctrine?
By what authority was Sunday Sabbath-keeping instituted?
Will the world be prepared to meet Him?
What will Christ do with the saints when He comes?
What were these locusts said to have over them?
What has He promised to be to those in trouble?
