Christmas T R A C T S

Let us consider briefly whether or not there are any Scriptural reasons for liv­ ing saints to be denied communication with loved ones who have gone to be with Christ. We read in Second Corinthians 5:7: “ We walk by faith, not by sight.” If God gave us “ sight” into the beyond, we would be carried out of the realm of faith and would be basing our confi­ dence chiefly upon things that we saw. We would become trapped in “the snare of the devil,” and “ taken captive by him at his will” (2 Tim. 2:26). Satan is “ the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the chil­ dren of disobedience” (Eph. 2 :2). If God permitted us to enter his special do­ main, we would be exposed unneces­ sarily to Satan’s wiles and deceptive de­ vices. We who are in the flesh see now “through a glass darkly.” At present, we do not possess a body adapted to con­ tact with heavenly beings. Our present mentality could neither understand nor declare heavenly things (2 Cor. 12:3, 4). Once our Lord did permit two men from the glory to come to a mountain apart from the multitude and to talk with Him in the presence of three of His disciples. What was the result? The record is in Luke 9:28-36. First, the dis­ ciples “ were heavy with sleep.” Second, “ They feared as they entered into the cloud.” Third, they said, “ Let us make three tabernacles; one for thee and one for Moses, and one for Elias.” If God allowed us on earth to talk with the saints in Heaven, our reaction doubtless would be exactly the same as that of the three disciples on the Mount of Trans­ figuration. We, too, would sleep, dazed by the glory. We, too, would be filled with unspeakable awe and fear. We, too, would respond unwisely, having only the power of human reasoning, as the dis­ ciples had. They wished to build three tabernacles — for the Lord Jesus, for Moses, and for Elias —- thus committing the grievous sin of placing the Son of God on a plane of equality with the de­ parted dead! God does not want our worship to center in men, even in men who have gone to Heaven. To the blundering dis­ ciples, “there came a voice out of the i cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him” (Lk. 9:35). When John, on the Isle of Patmos, saw a shining one, he fell at his feet to worship him. But immediately John was reproved with the words, “ See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets . . . worship God” (Rev. 22:9). Believers who are with Christ “ rest from their labours” (Rev. 14:13). The idea that saints are hovering around somewhere in the air above us, floating about in blissful wanderings, is utterly (Continued on Page 17)
