be saved," Acts. 4:12. THE POWER OF THAT NAME IS I N HIS DEITY. Christ is God, in THAT lies the Power of His Word, the Power and Preciousness of His Blood; and in THAT all our hope of overcom- ing the world; rising from among the dead, I Thes. 4:13-18; and finding salvation to the uttermost, Heb. 7:25. It is because


"Declared to be the Son of God, with power . . . by the resurrection from among the dead," Bom. 1:4, that His Name must be preached in all the world as the ONLY and ALMIGHTY SAVIOUR AND TEACHES OF MEN. It is because He is both God and Man in one, that He can be, and is, the ONLY MEDIATOR. "For there is one God, and One Mediator between man and God, the man Christ Jesus," I Tim. 2:5, and there is and can be no other intercessor, Heb. 7:25, between men and God but Himself. It is because HE IS BOTH SON OF GOD AND SON OF MAN that there shall be no final triumph of His Kingdom until He comes to subdue the enemy of God and Man and to establish His uni- versal rule in His own glorious Person. '' THEN shall He sit upon the throne of His glory," Mat. 25:31. Compare Acts 15:14-17; Luke, 2:31, 32; Acts, 3:19-21; Reyl 30:4,5. TAKE NO MAN'S WORD FOR IT. Bead, forthwith, the Gospel of John, the first eight* chapters of ¡Romans, and the Epistle to the Galatians, and see what God's Word says of the Son of God, the Blood of Christ, the Grace of Salvation through Faith alone. "Let no man deceive you," 1 John 3:7; " I f any man preach unto you any other Gospel than that ye have received, let Him be ac- cursed," Gal. 1:6-9. I BEG YOU TO CONSIDER that if you hold TO THE OLD GOSPEL as given IN THE OLD BOOK, and followed in the OLD TIME, you CAN- NOT he CONDEMNED by HIM Who said, "That we be no longer chil- dren, tossed to and fro and driven about by every'wind of doctrine, and by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness h e r e b y they lie in wait to deceive" (Eph. 4:14); that "We have the word of prophecy, made more sure; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed in your hearts as unto a Light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn and the Day Star appear." (II Pet. 1:19 revised); "For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Law (that is, the whole Bible) till all be fulfilled," Matt. 5:18; "For I testify to every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book; if any man shall take away from the words of the Book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City, and out of the things written in this Book." Rev. 22:18, 19. This applies to the whole Bible. See Deut. 4:2; Josh. 1:7; Prov. 30:6. The test of saving truth is the Word of God, but equally important, is the jtest of persona] salvation, .There are tests for gold, and tests for diamonds,'and tests for more precious souls.
