King's Business - 1915-04



. . . Adam did not call on the name of the Lord for mercy. . . . Cain never called on the name of the Lord for mercy. . . . I find over and over again 'that whenever a man did honestly call on God for mercy he found it. It does not matter how bad the man is or how black his sins, the result is the same. I suppose one of the worst characters we meet in Scripture is Manasseh. He was one of the wickedest kings that 'Judah had, and his iniquities were such that he was considered one of the vilest wretches on earth. And yet God heard his cry and delivered him from prison and put him back on, his throne.” MONTROSE BIBLE CONFERENCE. The eighth annual session of the Mont­ rose Bible Conference, under the director­ ship of R. A. Torrey, will be held at Mont­ rose, Pa., July 30 to August 8, 1915.

During the Civil war conditions became such that Abraham Lincoln issued an order that none of the soldiers would be granted a furlough. A while after that order, one word that -his wife was dying. His superiors couldn’t grant him the fur­ lough, but they did let him go and try to see the president. But when the reached the president’s office a guard outside stopped him and told him it was impossible to see the great man. The soldier went away discouraged, his eyes filled with tears. Outside a little bo.y saw him. The boy was Tad Lincoln. The little boy said, “What’s the matter, Mister Soldier?” The youngster had to ask several times before the soldier heard and answered him. And when the man told the child why he mourned, the little fellow said: “Come with me: I’ll take you to see him—he’s my papa.” The boy got the soldier past the guard at the door and Lincoln' signed the order allowing him to go to the bedside of his dying wife. That story is perfect. Here is sin, the guard at the door, and you can’t get by. Sin is the barrier. Twenty-nine years ago, in a Chicago mission, Jesus Christ came to me. “I can’t get in,” I said. But He took me in and the peace of God has been with me ever since.
