Some Hints For Gospel Speakers 1. Throw shoulders back, straighten spinal column, prepare by deep breaths. Hold this position while speaking. Arms held loosely'. Hands never placed in pockets. Move about. 2. Don’t let hands interfere with thought. (No fussing with things.) Form no characteristic action with the hands. Every such motion detracts from the thought. ,3 . Use gesture, when there is a defi nite reason for it, never otherwise. Gestures are not ornaments but helps. Use them for clearness and force, never for themselves alone. 4. In speaking move the lips, so that a deaf person could easily read the words from their motion. 5. Do not drink cold water while speaking or immediately after. 6. Avoid monotony of tone. Vari ety and constant change. 7. Open mouth more widely than usual when speaking. Throw the voice forward in full rich tones. 8. Speak slowly and carefully, sounding every syllable.
The Blood of Redemption The precious “ Blood” is mentioned four times in Revelation. Let us note the wonderful significance of this four fold reference in its special bearing on our conflict and victory in these clos ing days before the coming “ wrath of the Lamb,” Rev. 6:16,. 1.

The Cleansing Power of the Blood, Rev. 7:14, R.V.: “ They washed their robes and made them white in the blood of th.e Lamb,” i. e., as from defilement. It is the treasured assur ance of 1 John 1:7, “ The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin.” Sin’s stains removed. 4. The Conquering Power of the Blood, Rev. 12:11: “ They overcame (Gr.: conquered) him (the accuser, v. 10) because of the blood of the Lamb,;’
