Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing (epiphany) of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:13
Judges in many U. S. District Courts, State Supreme Courts, and County and Municipal Courts?
Do you know that this does not necessarily mean that the Hierarchy require specific pledges of such support from such judges, but that it does mean that the Hierarchy believes that they will naturally be inclined to favor the Papacy?
Do you know that in pursuance of this policy Catholics are placed on Official Committees, Boards and Bureaus?
Do you know that in harmony with the policy of placing their dependable adherents in strategic positions the Papacy has secured the ranking position in our navy for a Catholic, and that all branches of the navy on land and sea literally swarm with Catholics in important positions, including those of chaplains, which are almost exclusively in the hands of priests?
Do you know that, though in a less marked degree, they have succeeded in placing their dependables into strategic positions in all branches of our army and marines, including most of the chaplaincies, which are in the hands of priests?
Do you know that they have placed their dependable adherents in the strategic positions of the Post Office service, even more completely than in the army and navy?
Do you know that they have placed such adherents in the responsible positions of the United States Printing Department, and that these manipulate affairs so that Congressional matters that are against their Church receive the scantest possible publicity, as is manifest, e.g., by the early suspension of printing the Report of the Taft Commission on the dishonesty, immorality and general unfitness of the Philippine Friars?
Do you know that strategic positions in all other Governmental departments are being Romanized in a similar manner?
Do you know that according to this same Papal policy over 90% of the policemen and detectives in American cities of 10,000 population and upward are Catholics?
Do you know that in Philadelphia several years ago 98% of the detective force were Roman Catholic, and that nearly this proportion holds good in our other large cities?
Do you know that in pursuance of their policy of putting their dependables into strategic positions they are placing largely disproportionate numbers of their dependables on State, County and Municipal Boards of Education, thereby hoping to control matters of policy respecting school courses, text-books, teachers, officers and management, and thus more or less make our public schools, which, despite their efforts, they have failed to overthrow in the interests of their parochial schools, more amenable to Rome's theories of education?
Do you know that in harmony with this policy over 100,000 of our public schools are taught more or less by Catholic teachers, and that in 20,000 Catholic teachers constitute one-half of the teaching force?
Do you know that in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland, Baltimore, St. Louis, Buffalo, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., 75% of the public school teachers are Catholics?
Do you know that in pursuance of this same policy of putting their adherents into strategic positions Catholics are in a majority in 15,000 city, town and village councils in the United States, and that this means that in the various departments of these cities, towns and villages Catholics are placed into strategic positions?
Do you know that according to the same Papal policy the majority of the National Democratic Committee are Catholics, and that Catholics are in the majority
in 35 Democratic and 21 Republican State Committees?
Do you know that such placing of Catholics in strategic positions cannot be an accidental matter, but must be the result, first, of the operation of a deliberate plan of the Hierarchy to introduce here Rome's world-policy of political control, and, second, of a working alliance between the Catholic Hierarchy, directly or through its agents, on the one hand, and national, state and municipal officials and political leaders, on the other hand?
Do you know that the resultant condition makes Rome almost omnipotent in legislative, administrative and judicial circles in our nation, states and municipalities, and that this is practically a union of Church and State, because of Rome's relations to her followers?
Do you know that a sixth way by which Papacy has been seeking and gaining political influence, power and support is using her Monastic Orders, largely-Catholic political Clubs and various other Societies to secure such ends?
Do you know that almost all European countries have expelled the Catholic Monastic Orders, both male and female, in part because they were used by the Papacy in political activities?
Do you know that the chief of these Orders is the Order of Jesuits, which, among other things, because of its political activities has made itself odious unto exile from every nation of Christendom, except America?
Do you know that Jesuits in America and elsewhere, are the chief agents of Rome to carry forward Papacy's political programs?
Do you know that these Jesuits, working in secrecy, are mainly responsible for creating Rome's political power in America, as they have been in other countries?
Do you know that the benevolent aspect given to some of these Orders, like that of the Sisters of Mercy, gives Papacy opportunities to further Rome's political plans as to "getting America," especially in lulling unwary Americans to sleep by the thought that the Papacy must be a good and harmless institution, if it favors such good as is practiced by the Sisters of Mercy?
Do you know that Tammany Hall and some other powerful political clubs, being overwhelmingly Catholic in their membership, are in reality Catholic political clubs, and as such further Papacy's political influence, power and support?
Do you know that various other Catholic Orders, like the Knights of Columbus, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, etc., are working in the same direction and, judging by their activities and accomplishments, were organized for that purpose?
Do you know that there is good reason for believing that the recently organized National Catholic Welfare Conference and the National Conference of Catholic Men and the National Conference of Catholic Women have been organized in America for the same purposes that Rome organizes such bodies in other countries—among others that of seeking and gaining political influence, power and support?
Do you know that the seventh way by which the Papacy has been seeking and gaining political influence, power and support in America is entering into bargains with politicians and officials?
Do you know that such bargains with concurrent alliances are usually made by "secret diplomacy" between agents of the Roman hierarchy on the one hand, and convention bosses, party committee-men and prominent statesmen on the other hand?
Do you know that we can prove the existence of such secret bargains and alliances, rather from their effects than from witnesses of their making, even as
we can prove the existence of an unseen fire by the presence of smoke?
Do you know that an alliance implies that both parties to it grant, as bargains, certain advantages to one another, for which the alliance is entered into and maintained?
Do you know that such an alliance explains the fact of Papacy's great political influence, power and support in America during President Wilson's incumbency, a condition that gave the Papacy such a grip on the Government that the change of administration would not have been able to set aside, even if it had tried so to do?
Do you know that the fact that the Papacy now enjoys such great political influence, power and support in America is per se a proof that political bargains have been made by representatives of the Papacy with American politicians and officials?
Do you know that an eighth way by which Papacy, has been seeking and gaining political influence, power and support in America is creating such an atmosphere as compels its recognition on the part of politicians and officials?
Do you know that Papacy does this by impressing such politicians and officials with its power to support or oppose them by its controlled Catholic vote?
Do you know that Papacy does this by promising to reward and by actually rewarding compliant politicians and officials with support at the polls, etc., and by threatening to punish and by actually punishing recalcitrant politicians and officials with opposition at the polls, etc.?
Do you know that these considerations account for some politicians and office-holders ever mounting from lower to higher offices, and for others sinking under defeat into oblivion?
Do you know that for this reason the bulk of politicians and officials dance to the crack of Papacy's
whip, and thus Rome gains political influence, power and support through the selfish ambitions, accommodations and fears of politicians and officials?
Do you know that a ninth way by which the Papacy has been seeking and gaining political influence, power and support is using national, state and municipal officials to give it favors, prestige and publicity?
Do you know that among such favors are the political jobs and positions that the Papacy secures for her favorites from national, state and municipal politicians and officials?
Do you know that Papacy has succeeded in gaining considerable prestige by securing politicians' and officials' attendance at great Papal functions and celebrations?
Do you know that in line with this course of Papacy one of our Presidents attended a Catholic Church each Thanksgiving day and attended with his entire Cabinet, accompanied by Senators, Representatives, etc., the fiftieth anniversary celebration of Cardinal Gibbons' ordination?
Do you know that Papacy has created such an atmosphere as to make our public officials, from the President down, spare no pains to impress the thought of the importance of the Catholic clergy and Church in American affairs, as can be seen from the remark of one of our Presidents to the effect that "a Roman Catholic priest is the finest human being that walks the earth"; from the remark of another President that "the Roman Catholic Church is the most uplifting moral influence in the Philippine Islands"; and from the telegrams of another President, his Vice-President, some of his department secretaries and other prominent officials, on the occasion of Cardinal Gibbons' death, praising his Americanism and Churchmanship?
Do you know that this same spirit created by the Papacy in politicians and officials prompted the Mayor of New York to furnish Cardinal Dougherty, on several
occasions of the latter's passing through New York City, with an ostentatious escort of motor policemen to clear the way for "his eminence," and prompted the Mayor and Council of Philadelphia to give the same Cardinal an immense civic reception, in which hundreds of thousands participated, requiring at the expense of tax payers the use of hundreds of extra police at various locations along the parade route, while many scores of other policemen walked, motored and rode on horses and in autos in the parade?
Do you know that according to the mayor's testimony the Cardinal frequently remarked, during the course of the parade, at such unprecedented civic honors, "This is not meant for me personally, but for the cause I represent?"
Do you know that the next night the Mayor of Philadelphia and the Governor of Pennsylvania, seated at either side of the enthroned Cardinal, vied with each other in doing honor to what was seemingly the Cardinal, but actually was, as the Cardinal truly claimed—the cause he represented?
Do you know that the Papacy by using prominent politicians and officials to give its representatives such favors, prestige and publicity is gaining political influence, power and support in America?
Do you know that a tenth way by which Papacy is seeking and gaining political influence, power and support in America is seeking through legislative, judicial and administrative action to overthrow opponents, and their use of the freedom of the press and of speech and of assemblage?
Do you know that the Papacy has been seeking by legislative, judicial and administrative action to overthrow the Ku Klux Klan, as inimical to it?
Do you know that it inspires newspapers, national, state and municipal officials to attack the Klan?
Do you know that the Roman Hierarchy continually
seeks to secure the withdrawal of mailing privileges from anti-Catholic periodicals?
Do you know that the Catholic and Catholic-inspired legislators have, to shield the Papacy, introduced similarly worded bills in almost every State legislature, and also in Congress, forbidding criticism of any religion or of its head, with penal provisions and provisions of withdrawal of the mail service to publications criticizing any religion or its head?
Do you know that Papacy through its representatives frequently prevails upon municipal officials to prohibit meetings where patriotic lectures are to be given for the enlightenment of the public on Papacy's political activities in America, and through Catholic mobs has killed, maimed or otherwise violated the rights of some who deliver such lectures?
Do you know that all these facts prove that Papacy has been seeking and gaining political influence, power and support in America through efforts to undermine opponents and to take away their constitutional privileges, and that in such activity it has the cooperation of not a few politicians and officials?
Do you know that an eleventh way by which Papacy is seeking and gaining political influence, power and support in America, is manipulating in its interests the agencies and organs of publicity—the leading newsgathering agencies, publishing houses, newspapers, and moving picture corporations?
Do you know that it is for this reason that Papacy gets such large and prominent space for its favorable news, and causes important favorable Protestant news to be given scant and obscure space, in the public press?
Do you know that it is for this reason that unfavor-Catholic news, e.g., like priests going wrong, etc., is suppressed, while unfavorable Protestant news, e.g., like ministers going wrong, is given large and prominent mention?
Do you know that it is for this reason that reference books, histories, text-books, etc., are being given a Catholic bias, with the deletion and minimizing of things discreditable to Papacy?
Do you know that it is for this reason that the movies usually hold up Papal matters to reverence and Protestant matters to scorn?
Do you know that these conditions brought about by Papacy according to its intention result in its increasing its political influence, power and support in America?
Do you know that a twelfth way by which Papacy is seeking and gaining political influence, power and support in America is getting from national, state and municipal funds financial aid for its hospitals, schools and Indian missions?
Do you know that the Papacy has in many states and cities secured support for its hospitals, in some cases 80% of public funds given to Sectarian hospitals going to Catholic hospitals?
Do you know that in America "many public school boards now contribute a part or all of the School tax to Catholic Schools"?
Do you know that Papacy has so manipulated matters that, while our national Government has for years been supporting public schools in the Philippine Islands, these schools for years have been practically turned over to the control of the Catholic Church, which uses her control to teach her doctrines in them?
Do you know that under Papal manipulation our National Government in part supports the Papal missionary work among the American Indians, by contributing to the support of Rome's Indian schools, where among other Papal things her catechism is taught?
Do you know that in these ways our Government supports the work of teaching Papal religion among
the Filipinos and Indians, and that this is a feature of the union of Church and State?
Do you know that these acts give the Papacy political influence, power and support in America?
Do you know that a thirteenth way by which Papacy seeks and gains political influence, power and support in America is influencing many of its European adherents to emigrate to America, usually settling them in cities, rapidly securing citizenship for them, and sending them to the polls to vote in her interests?
Do you know that this accounts for Rome's great numbers and political dominance in our large cities?
Do you know that for the past forty years our immigrants have been preponderantly from Catholic countries?
Do you know that Papacy is the most persistent foe to our legislation for the restriction of immigration, and that because Roman Catholic immigration enhances her political influence, power and support in America?
Do you know that a fourteenth way by which Papacy is seeking and gaining political influence, power and support in America is encouraging the use of parochial schools and seeking to set aside distinctively American features of our public schools?
Do you know that Rome as staunchly supports her parochial schools as she opposes our unmanipulated Public Schools?
Do you know that this is because, among other things, its parochial schools enable the Papacy to train her future voters to seek and conserve her political interests, and because our unmanipulated Public Schools inculcate a 100% Americanism, which means death to Papal politics in America?
Do you know that Papacy seeks desperately to have her parochial schools in America supported by the State, and has succeeded in securing this in many
cases, and is continually in many States injecting the question into State and municipal politics?
Do you know that Papacy has for years opposed the bill called the Smith-Towner—Towner-Sterling—Sterling-Reed bill, which champions things in harmony with Americanism in education, and up to the present has kept the bill asleep "in Committee," because its enactment among other things would put hindrances in the way of Rome's "getting America"?
Do you know that Papacy's external and frontal attack on our Public School system having generally failed, it is now "boring from within" in an effort to emasculate their Americanism by filling the Boards of Education and the teaching staffs of our Public Schools with its adherents?
Do you know that Papacy is seeking to revise the textbooks used in our Public Schools or write new ones so as to make them more or less Roman propaganda?
Do you know that these facts prove that Papacy's policy of education, exemplified in its course toward the parochial schools and toward our Public Schools, is in part to seek and secure political influence, power and support, and in part to nullify opposition to such influence, power and support, and that in these purposes its receives more or less support from political leaders and office-holders?
Do you know that the fourteen lines of Papal activity outlined above unanswerably prove the existence of a deep, thorough, all-embracing, cleverly conducted and largely successful plan on the part of Papacy to "get America"?
Do you know that the above fourteen lines of thought incontrovertibly prove that there is a working cooperation and alliance between the representatives of Papacy and their supporters on the one hand, and politicians and officeholders on the other hand, in which cooperation and working alliance many features
characterizing a union of Church and State are present?
Do you know that our National Constitution, forbidding a union of Church and State, impliedly, logically and truly forbids what partakes of various features of such a union?
Do you know that it is, therefore, unlawful in America and repugnant to American institutions that there be such a cooperation and working alliance as we have proved exists in America between the representatives of the Papacy and their adherents, on the one hand, and politicians and officials, on the other hand?
Do you know that the Church is espoused to Christ, and is in figurative chastity to keep herself pure and free from all alliances with all others, so that as a figurative chaste virgin she may be fit for her marriage with Christ, which takes place at Christ's Second Advent?—2 Cor. 11: 2; Rev. 19: 6-8; 21: 9, 10.
Do you know that it is because the Roman Catholic Church has failed to keep herself free from all alliances with others and has united with various States in a union of Church and State that she has become unfaithful and unchaste as the Bride of Christ, and hence is, figuratively, called in Scripture a "Harlot," who will not become Christ's Bride at His Second Advent?—Rev. 17: 3-6, 15, 16, 18; 19: 2, 3.
Do you know that the Divine law, described in the two last questions as forbidding what partakes in any measure of a union of Church and State, is also violated by the cooperation and working alliance which the above given fourteen points prove exists between Papacy's representatives and their adherents and many American politicians and office-holders?
Do you know that it is, therefore, unlawful both from the standpoint of God's Law and of our nation's Law that politicians and office-holders in
America be in such a cooperation and working alliance with the Roman Catholic Church?
Do you know that the above given facts should move all Protestants, all members of Anti-Catholic Lodges, Orders, Societies, etc., and all other non-Catholics to use all honorable means in pulpit, press, platform, assemblage, conversation and ballot to checkmate Rome's hold on our national, state and municipal officers, in order to avert the displeasure of the Almighty from resting upon our country, and the loss of liberty and equality, for which America has been the champion, from the earth?
Do you know that by the circulation of this and similar papers you can in part "do your bit" in a much needed reform?
Do you know that Papists, the most bigoted of all religionists, will call such a course bigotry and intolerance?
Do you know that such a course on their part is the "stop thief" cry of the pursued wrong-doer?

(5) How many years does the Bible often use a day to type? What passages prove this? What do fulfilled facts prove as to the day of 2 Kings 2: 3? How so? What was computed by Passover, 1918? How is this thus Scripturally proven date computed? What has already been shown on this date?
(6) What two thoughts are symbolized by these two measurements? How is the first of these thoughts symbolized by a Pyramid measurement? What will eventually be the position of those who over the proper course reach the condition symbolized by the projected floor line of the King's Chamber?

How do the above-mentioned two measurements symbolize April, 1918, as the counterfeit end of Spirit-begetting?
(7) What do detailed Pyramid symbols do for the main Epiphany truths? In what chapters are these truths to be found? When did antitypical Elijah cast his mantle over antitypical Elisha? How is this proven? How did antitypical Elisha act on that occasion? What is marked by their conduct at that time? How does the Pyramid symbolize this? What did four leading brothers do in 1917, whose conduct in 1908 and 1909, along with that of others, is typed by Elisha's conduct in 2 Kings 2: 2-6? Of what class are they thus proven to be?
(8) What is symbolized by the fact that the two lines under consideration diverge in the solid masonry of the step? Whose course is symbolized by the line ascending at the proper angle? Why? Whose course is symbolized by the deviating line? Why? What is symbolized by the lines being invisible in the solid masonry of the step? What is symbolized by the fact that the deviating line reaches the open at a point symbolizing about July, 1917? What is symbolized by the fact that the line, for ¾ of
an inch, ascends into the open? What is symbolized by the fact that the line symbolizing the course that the faithful class took could not reach the open before the time marked as July 18, 1920, in the Pyramid? How long will it yet be before all the individuals of antitypical Elijah will as such be manifested?
(9) Where are detailed proofs given that the separation of the Truth people in 1917 was the separation of antitypical Elijah and Elisha as classes? What fact proves the partisan Society adherents to be antitypical Elisha? How increasingly did they take to themselves the mantle? How should we answer the Society adherents' argument that they, being but one group, while other Truth people are many groups, must be the Little Flock? How many divisions will there ultimately be among Truth people?
(10) What kind of a course in the open did the Society leaders take about July 1, 1917? How long did they unabatedly continue in it? How are these nine months symbolized in the Pyramid? What is symbolized by the ¾-inch reaching the projected floor line of the King's Chamber directly above the place marking about Oct. 1, 1914? Who does and who does not pronounce judgment as to Great Company membership? What may and what may not Epiphany-enlightened saints do in connection with the Lord's judgments in this matter? What may we not, and what may we conclude of antitypical Elijah and Elisha in the unfinished picture? Why? What may we conclude of them in the finished picture? In the strict sense of the word, whom does Elisha type?
(11) How did the antitype of Elijah's and Elisha's separation gradually become clear? What hindered its becoming clear sooner? When and where was it clearly presented for the first time? How did its understanding affect a certain brother's course at the Society's election in 1918?
(12) What questions do these Pyramid symbolizations of antitypical Elijah and Elisha raise? What answer should be first be given to the objection involved in the question? How is the objection completely answered from the standpoint of Pyramid symbols? Describe in detail the symbols connected with the Ante-Chamber by which the objection is completely answered. What was done
when the subject became clear? Where and before whom was it done?
(13) By what and whom were antitypical Elijah and Elisha represented as acting on the date of the separation, as indicated in the Pyramid? What does this not, and what does it mean?
(14) What services were performed by a certain brother as his last services connected with antitypical Elisha? What seems to have been the reason for "The Present Management's" assigning him certain work at the Tabernacle?
(15) What was done by a certain Board Committee from June 14 to June 19, 1917? When did they report their findings to the Board? What was done at that Board meeting? How did the Board and the Lord judge respecting the British work relating to Azazel's Goat?
(16) What led to the appointment of this Board Committee? What helps did they have in their investigation? What were its findings as to the validity of certain credentials and as to their holder's understanding of them? What convinced this Committee of the bona fide character of these credentials? What was its judgment on the work of a certain brother? What unauthorized acts did the Society's President perform in re these credentials and the brother's having and acting on them? What was the Committee's judgment on the President's acts and the Secretary's statement sent to Britain? What did the Board Committee recommend as against the President's course?
(17) Give in their order a series of seven events occurring from June 21, 1917 to June 23, 1917. How do they, especially the seventh event, stand related to antitypical Elijah's and Elisha's separation?
(18) What was done respecting these seven events 3½ years before their relation to their Pyramid symbolization was known? Summarize the account of these things as given on pages 16 and 15 in Harvest Siftings Reviewed. When did the Society's President show himself irreconcilable?
(19) What are the exact dates indicated at the foot of the step and at the point of intersection between the deflected line and the top of the step? What is the exact
length of solar time represented by the deflected line? Into what periods is this time divided by exact solar reckonings? To what solar date do the ¾ of an inch vertically above the point of intersection bring us? What was that date in lunar time? What had the Society leaders taught would occur on that date? What does the Pyramid say of this?
(20) What two results follow from this Pyramid symbolism?
(21) Give the events occurring June 24 to June 27 involved in the separation of antitypical Elijah and Elisha. When did antitypical Elijah representatively perform his last act under the Society's auspices? When did antitypical Elisha start his work forever separate and distinct from antitypical Elijah in his representative member? How is this event symbolized in the Pyramid? What later events prove that antitypical Elijah in his representative member was given no recognition in service after June 27, 1917?
(22) What three thoughts prove the reasonableness of these events being symbolized in the Pyramid?
(23) What charge is brought against the representative member of antitypical Elijah for setting forth his representative part as symbolized in the Pyramid? Why need not such a course spring from pride? What quality may have prompted the charge?
(24) What intervened between Saturday, June 23, 1917—the date of the conversation that showed the irreconcilable attitude of antitypical Elisha's representative member—and this member's delivery of the Board's resolution of June 20 to antitypical Elijah's representative member? When and how did the former first mention it to the latter? What were the circumstances of its delivery and receipt? What did this resolution do with the work of leading two British sections of Azazel's Goat to the Gate?
(25) What was the effect of its reading? How was this effect overcome? What are the seven witnesses vindicating the stand of The Present Truth?
(26) How was the finishing of this article chronologically related to the Great Company's false date for the end of the reaping and Spirit-begetting?
(27) What two events respecting antitypical Elisha are
symbolized in the Pyramid? How are they there symbolized? What dates does the Pyramid give for these two events?
(28) What is the first Scriptural consideration which proves that antitypical Elijah was to reappear? What is implied in typical Elisha's appearance with the mantle, separate and distinct from typical Elijah? What do these things imply for their antitypes? What does Elijah's reappearance in the letter episode type? What distinction in the Little Flock's offices will help to clarify this antitype? While inactive as Elijah's antitype what office did the Church exercise? What things prove this? What two points in both type and antitype must be emphasized to clarify and prove antitypical Elijah's reappearance?
(29) What is the second Scriptural consideration which proves that antitypical Elijah was to reappear? What is the twofold relation of John the Baptist to Elijah? What proves this? Which of these relations is connected with antitypical Elijah's reappearance? What three lines of evidence prove antitypical Elijah's and Elisha's separation? What events of John's experiences have not yet—4½ years after antitypical Elijah's and Elisha's separation—been antityped? In whom additional to antitypical John will these types be antityped? What does this prove concerning a reappearance of antitypical Elijah?
(30) What is the third Scriptural consideration which proves that antitypical Elijah was to reappear? What two reasons make this third consideration prove his reappearance?
(31) What is the fourth Scriptural consideration which proves that antitypical Elijah was to reappear? What has the World's High Priest done to the Truth Levites under bad leadership? What does such activity imply? What work should follow such activity? What does such subsequent work imply? How does leading the Nominal Church section of Azazel's Goat to the Gate prove antitypical Elijah's reappearance?
(32) Give a summary of the four considerations that prove antitypical Elijah's reappearance. In what office alone does Elijah type the Church? What are some other offices of the Church?
(33) What does antitypical Elijah's reappearance do
with the second "new view" on antitypical Elijah and Elisha? What are the three "new views"? Why, seemingly, were they invented, and where are they refuted? What other fact refutes the "third and fourth new views"?
(34) How many general proofs are there that antitypical Elijah has already reappeared?
(35) What is the first Scriptural consideration which proves that antitypical Elijah has already reappeared? What is antitypical Gideon's second battle? In what capacity does the Church act in this battle? What follows from the fact that this battle is now going on? What are the events, type and antitype, that preceded this battle? What do they prove as to antitypical Elijah's reappearance?
(36) What is the second Scriptural consideration which proves that antitypical Elijah has already reappeared? What peculiarity common to the Elijah and the Gideon pictures is lacking in the picture of the High Priest leading Azazel's Goat to the Gate? How only could we learn that Azazel's Goat would be led to the Gate at different times in its Truth and Nominal Church sections? What would have failed to happen to antitypical Elijah if this variation of time in leading these sections of Azazel's Goat to the Gate had not set in? How far has this antitype proceeded? Along what lines does and will the leading of Azazel's Goat to the Gate proceed? What is implied in the Church's testifying to the nominal people of God against the manifold revolutionism of Azazel's Goat?
(37) What inferences should not and what inferences should be drawn from the above proofs? What power does antitypical Elijah now lack? What should he not be expected to receive again? Why? How should this reappearance affect us?
(38) What does the Pyramid do with all important features of God's Plan? How does it indicate antitypical Elisha's appearance separate from antitypical Elijah, and its date? What should be inferred from this fact?
(39) What do deflections from the floor lines of the Grand Gallery symbolize? How is antitypical Elisha's measurably unfaithful course symbolized there? What should not be expected to be found in the line representing
antitypical Elijah's course within the Grand Gallery? Why not? How is his course there represented? What kind of a line should not symbolize his course after it reached the end of the Grand Gallery? What two reasons forbid it? What is the difference between the symbolism of the Grand Gallery and the passage from it to the Ante-Chamber? What wrong theory is based on an ignoring of this difference and on an inaccurate measurement?
(40) How only in harmony with the Pyramid's symbols could antitypical Elijah emerge from the antitypical step? How may we answer an objection to this? What are the two lines that mark antitypical Elijah's course through the step? [The Class leader would profitably make a large drawing of the south end of the Grand Gallery, including the step and the passage to the Ante-Chamber, indicating on the drawing the lines and measurements that symbolize antitypical Elijah's and Elisha's courses through the step. A sample for such a drawing will be found in The Great Pyramid Passages, Vol. 2, 70.] What dates are indicated at the ends of these two lines?
(41) What time of the day, Sept. 24, 1846, was assumed as marking the foot of the step? What was the character of that time, and why was it assumed? What better way is there of finding the time of the day at the foot of the step? Why is it better? From what day and hour should we count back to the foot of the step? What time is shown from this reckoning for antitypical Elisha's and Elijah's entrance into the antitypical step? What date is indicated by the Pyramid for the latter's exit from this step? What particularity should we not expect in the Pyramid? Why not? How should we regard its exactness to a day?
(42) What is the first problem before us in tracing antitypical Elijah's dates as symbolized in the Pyramid? What does exactness in this matter require? How can we find out in Pyramid inches the length of the projected floor line in the step? What is the exact length? How do we reduce this decimal of a Pyramid inch to days, hours, etc.? What is the exact time symbolized by the length of the projected floor line in the step? How do we find 7:12
A. M., Sept. 16, 1914, to be the time when antitypical Elijah reached the vertical line of the antitypical Grand Gallery's south wall? What does this prove?
(43) What is the second problem before us in tracing antitypical Elijah's dates as symbolized by the Pyramid? Why must the length of the vertical line be known to find the second of such dates? Where are the step measurements given? What are they? What kind of angle is formed by the front and top of the step? What two things should be done to find the distance of the vertical line from the top of the step to its point of intersection with the projected floor line? What would this vertical line in Pyramid inches symbolize? What is this time reduced to years, quarters of years, days, hours, etc.? How can we find the full length of the two lines symbolizing the two parts of antitypical Elijah's journey within the step? At what date did the second line reach the top of the step? How is this proven?
(44) What occurred July 18, 1920, as prophetically symbolized in the Pyramid? What types did that event begin to antitype? Why is it reasonable to expect antitypical Elijah's reappearance to be indicated in the Bible and the Pyramid? What is the distance from the point of intersection of the step's top and the vertical line of the Pyramid's south wall to the projected floor line of the King's Chamber? What two sets of events and dates in antitypical Elisha's and Elijah's experiences are symbolized at the beginning and at the end of these ¾ of an inch? What two churches were privileged to hold the public meetings for antitypical Elijah's work which were necessary to fix these dates? Why were these two churches selected by God for this honor? Where, when and in what service was The Layman's Home Missionary Movement first pointed out in public as the movement in which antitypical Elijah was active in his reappearance? Why was this done on that date?
(45) What conclusion should not be drawn from the fact that antitypical Elijah has reappeared? Why not? How are those Priests who are in the Levitical groups sharing in antitypical Elijah's present work? Under what handicap do they labor? In what are they not taking part?
476 Elijah and Elisha.
(46) What other conclusion should not be drawn from the fact that antitypical Elijah has reappeared? Especially what two classes working in The Laymen's Home Missionary Movement will not be in the Little Flock? What parallel activities illustrate this? What events must first take place before the eventual Little Flock members will be manifested as such? How should these considerations affect us?
ELIJAH ON HOREB.
In troublous days of anguish and rebuke,
While sadly round them Israel's children look,
And their eyes fail for waiting on their Lord,
While underneath each awful arch of green,
On every mountain top, God's chosen scene
Of pure heart-worship, Baal is adored:
'Tis well, true hearts should for a time retire
To holy ground, in quiet to aspire
Towards promised regions of serener grace;
On Horeb, with Elijah, let us lie,
Where all around on mountain, sand, and sky,
God's chariot-wheels have left distinctest trace.
There, if in jealousy and strong disdain
We to the sinner's God of sin complain,
Untimely seeking here the peace of Heaven—
"It is enough, O Lord! now let me die
E'en as my fathers did: for what am I
That I should stand, where they have vainly striven?"
Perhaps our God may of our conscience ask,
"What doest thou here, frail wanderer from the task?
Where hast thou left those few sheep in the wild?"
Then should we plead our heart's consuming pain,
At sight of ruined altars, prophets slain,
And God's own ark with blood of souls defiled;
He on the rock may bid us stand, and see
The outskirts of His march of mystery,
His endless warfare with man's willful heart;
First, His great power He to the sinner shows,
Lo! at His angry blast the rocks unclose,
And to their base the trembling mountains part:
Yet the Lord is not here: 'tis not by Power
He will be known—but darker tempests lower;
Still, sullen heavings vex the laboring ground:
Perhaps His Presence thro' all depth and height,
Best of all gems, that deck His crown of light,
The haughty eye may dazzle and confound.
God is not in the earthquake; but behold
From Sinai's caves are bursting, as of old,
The flames of His consuming Jealous ire.
Woe to the sinner, should stern justice prove
His chosen attribute—but He in love—
Hastes to proclaim, "God is not in the fire."
The storm is o'er—and hark! a still small voice
Steals on the ear, to say, Jehovah's choice
Is ever with the soft, meek, tender soul:
By soft, meek, tender ways He loves to draw
The sinner, startled by His ways of awe:
Here'll be our Lord, and not where thunders roll.
Back then, complainer; loath thy life no more,
Nor deem thyself upon a desert shore,
Because the rocks the nearer prospect close.
Yet in fallen Israel are there hearts and eyes
That day by day in prayer like thine arise:
Thou know'st them not, but their Creator knows.
Go, to the world return, nor fear to cast
Thy bread upon the waters, sure at last
In joy to find it after many days.
The work be thine, the fruit thy children's part:
Chose to believe, not see: sight tempts the heart
From sober walking in true Gospel ways.
