Description
Excerpt: Here is the law of life, as laid down by the eagle?eyed prophet Isaiah, in that remarkable chapter commencing, ?Ho, every one that thirsteth??whether it be after knowledge, or any other earthly or spiritual good?come unto me and I will give you that which you seek. This is the spirit of the text, and these are the words at the commencement of the tenth verse: ?As the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it (the earth) bring forth and bud (not first bud, bear seed, and then bring forth ), that it (the earth) may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater (man being the only sower of seed and eater of bread): so shall my Word be (the Word of Life) that goeth forth out of my mouth (the mouth of the Lord); it shall not return unto me void (i.e., lifeless), but it shall accomplish that which I ( the Lord Jehovah) please, and it (the living Word) shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.? This formula of life is as true now as it was over two thousand six hundred years ago, when it was penned by the divinely inspired prophet, and it is as true now as it was then, that ?Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the briar shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.? That is, as the rains descend and the floods come and change the face of the earth, a law, equivalent to the divine command, ?Let the earth bring forth,? is forever operative, changing the face of nature and causing it to give expression to new forms of life as the conditions thereof are changed, and these forms are spoken into existence by the divine fiat.
