A fonrth world, or a foirrtli heaven, is 11om11erenamed ill the
Bible or nsaociated mitli the past, prcsc~it.,orfntr~re,of man; btlt.
three heavens and three eartlis, are distir~ctly~nentio~~ed.
worlds must bc recognized.-Not t IC 11ca\.cn,earth, and hell, of
the catechism; but tlie world tliat wns before the flood; "tl~is
present evil world;" and " the world to comc." Apt1 all that
God has revealed of man or his dcstiay, is associated ~vit,liol~e
or more of tlicse worlds. And tlicy follow cach other; that is,
ao t\vo exist at one and the snme time; hence the Bible is a pro-
gressive science.

a cliai~geof diq)enfia-
tion; as is provcn, not only by tllc facts conncotcd with the flood,
but also by positive Scriptnre testimony. At the flood the wa-
tCrs rosc uiitll tile liills \rere covered, and the11 the monntait~s;
and when the waters subsided, the tops of tl~cmou~itainsand tho

even the trees wcrc not nprooted, for
bearing an olive leaf, plzcelced qff, "so Nonli ki~ew
tIi:rt the wsten wcrc abated from off tlic carth." If the olivc
tree liad bee11 Ilontiiig, tl~c
plwkcd-off leaf would 11at.c been no
sign of tlic waters having abatcd. Tl~usit appears tlicre was
little or JIO cliangc of the earth, or Iierrvens, but simply a grcat
destruction of life. And yet tllc Iai~g~iagc,
taker1 literally, \vould
imply a total annihilation of both hca~eiisand cnl-tli; :rrid tl~c
one "that now is," is ~ncntioiicdas a~aothcr hesrei~saiid cartl~,
wllich, in turn, is to " pass away," not with a grcat flood, but 1ritl1
a grcat ~ioisc." And yet the general teaching of Scripture is
that the "passing away" of this present llcavcns and earth, is
only a change of dis )ensation, ntteiided with great ncltio7aul (lc-
struction. l~rI'liou,krcl, in tlie beginnilig bast 1:~iclthe fo1111d:t-

the Patriarchal age, reachieg from the flood to the death of Ja-
cob; the Jewish age, reaching to the death of Christ; and the
Gosl)el a e, reachmg to tlic first resurrection, and end of this
world. then follows " nga to comc " (Bplrc. 2: 7)); the firnt of
mliich is the millcnnial agc; or i-atllcr tho age of colzquest, for in
it Clirist is to " rcign until he has s~ibducd
Thcu the gos 1 was given that the " sced," wit I tlie Grent Cap-
tain of our sacation, " might be made pcrfcct through suflering."
The "Seed," means one complete Christ; in otller words, the
head and bod ; "He aaith not, ancl t.o seeds, as of many; but
na of one, An d to thy Sccd, wliicli is Christ" (Gnl. 3: 16 . "And
if y.c be Cllrist's then are ye Abr:~t~aiii's
lieira according to the promise "
Ye=. 29) . Thus the object and
sced [not scc s], and
ivork of the gospcl is to perfect t iis L'seccl," tho~ewho are to
take the name of Christ, and bcconlc one with him. And this
agrees wit.h Acts 16: 14; " Simeon llntli declared how Godatthe
first did visit tho Gentiles, to taka out of
name.** And this is the sole object of
tiles; not to convert tlie world, that work
nial age, but to perfect the second Adam
Christ and his wife. And tho millennia1 age is introdnced by
the marriapc of tho Lamb; " Let us be glad and rejoice, and give
Ironor to him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and hie wife
hath madc lie~gelfready" (IZcv, 19: 7).
This world cnds with the second coming of Christ and the res-
urrection of this " seed;" just this nt~mberwho make up the body
of Christ, "Chriet, the first frtiite, afterwards the that arc
Christ's, at his cominq" And then it iq the work o the snlva-
tion of the worM begl~is.
All that wsa lost ill Adam, is to bc restored in the second Ad-
am. And this "restitntion of all tl~ing,"beginsonly atthe scc-
ond advent: " Itcpcnt ye tliercfore, and beconvcrtcd, that your
sins may be blotted out., when tlic timcs of refreshing shall comc
from the prescncc of the Lord, and he shdl send Jesus Christ,
which before lwne preached unto you; whom tlic heaven must re-
ccive until the timcs of rcstitlrtion of dlthings; which God hath
spoken by the mouth of all his holy pro1)licte since tlio world be-
gan " (Acts 3 : 19-21 .

In the world that was before tho flood, man was without law
or national government; and the result wasutter corruption. In
tlic world that now ia, a system of gradual development has ob-
tained. Under the patriarchal age a peoplc were called out; af-
tcr which, "the law. was a schoolm.zster to brin ris to Chri~t."
