    The stake and scaffold have never silenced the messages of the Most High. Then can the present mode of 15attempting this — namely, by slanderous falsehoods, and a secret mind-method, through which to effect the purposes of envy and malice — silence Truth? Never. They 18but open the eyes to the truth of Benjamin Franklin’s report before the French Commissioners on Mesmerism: “It is one more fact to be recorded in the history of the 21errors of the human mind.”

    “The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice.”

    No evidence before the material senses can close my 24eyes to the scientific proof that God, good, is supreme. Though clouds are round about Him, the divine justice and judgment are enthroned. Love is especially near 27in times of hate, and never so near as when one can be just amid lawlessness, and render good for evil.

    I thunder His law to the sinner, and sharply lighten 30on the cloud of the intoxicated senses. I cannot help loathing the phenomena of drunkenness produced by animality. I rebuke it wherever I see it. The vision 278 278:1of the Revelator is before me. The wines of fornication, envy, and hatred are the distilled spirits of evil, 3and are the signs of these times; but I am not dismayed, and my peace returns unto me.

    Error will hate more as it realizes more the presence 6of its tormentor. I shall fulfil my mission, fight the good fight, and keep the faith.
