HPHE TITLE of this series of Studies ( < The Divine

  • Plan of the Ages/ 7 suggests a progression in the Di-

vine arrangement, foreknown to our God and orderly. We believe the teachings of Divine revelation can be seen to be both beautiful and harmonious fiorn this standpoint and from no other. The period in which sin is permitted has been a dark night to humanity, never to be forgotten ; but the glorious day of righteousness and divine favor, to be ushered in by Messiah, who, as the Sun of Righteousness, shall arise and shine fully and clearly into and upon all, bringing healing and blessing, will more than countei bal- ance the dreadful night of weeping, sighing, pain, sick- ness and death, in which the groaning creation has been so long. " Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the MORNING.*' Psa. 30:5. (9)
