A TABERNACLE PULPIT. ! 1ALMAQB PREACHES A MOST REMARKABLE SERMON " The 8nb|eet Being "Festlvity""Come, t All Things Are Now Ready," Luke 14zxvll--The Beautiful Character of d)nr Lod Jeans Christ. Booxr, rrL N. Y., Jan. 2d.--The usual large audience assembled to-day in the Tabernacle and listened to a sermon of remarkable ]power and interest by Rev. Dr. Tal- rouge, the subject being "Festivity." "The text selected was Luke 14:xvii, "'ome, for all things are now ready." It was one of the most exciting times in Englsh history when Queen Elizabeth visited Lord Leicester at Kenilworth castle. The moment of her arrival was considered so im- portant that all the clocks of the castle were stopped so that the hands might point to that one moment as being the most significant of all. She wasgreeted at the gate with floating islands, and torche, and the thunder of cannon, and fireworks that set the night ablaze, and a great burst of music that lifted the whole sene into perfect enchant- ment Then she was introduced into a dining-hall, the luxuries of which astoflished the world: 400 servants waited upon the guests: the entertain- ment cost $5,000 each day. Lord Leicester made that great supper in Kenilworth eastle Cardinal Wolsey etertained the Prench ambassadors at Hamp- ton court. The best cooks in all the land prepared for the banquet; ,purveyors went out and" traveled al'[ the ,kingdom over to find spoils for the table. The time came. "l?he guests were kept during the day huntiug in the' king's park, so that their appetites might be keen, and then in the evening, to the sound of the trumpeters, they were introduced *rite a hall hung with silk and cloth of gold, and there were tables a-glitter with imperial plate and laden with the rare of meats and a-blush with the ,ostliest wine, s. And when the second course of the feast came it was found that the articles of food had been fash- ioned in'to the shape of men, birds and beasts, 'and groups dancing and joust- ing parties riding against each other with lans. Lords and princes and ambassadors, out of cups filled to the brim, drank the health, first of the king ot England and next of the king ef France. Cardinal Wolsey prepared that great supper in Hampton court, But I have to tell you of a grander entertainment. My Lord, the King, is the banqueter. Angels are the cupbear- ers. All the redeemed are the guests. The halls of eternal love, frescoed with light, and paved with joy, aud urtalned with unfading beauty, are he banqueting place, The harmonies f eternity are the music. The chalices of heaven ar the plate: and I am one of the servants coming out with bth hands filled with invitations, scattermg them everywhere, and, oh, that for yourselves, you might break the seal of the invitation and read the -,vords written in red ink of blood by the tremulous hand of a dying Christ: ",ome now, for all things art; ready." There have been grand entertain- ments where was a taking off--the wine gave out. or the servants were rebellious, or the light failed; but I have gone all around about this sub- jeer and looked at the redemption which Christ has provided, and I come here to tell you it is complete, and I swing open the door of the feast, tell- ingyon that, "All things are now ready." In the first place. I have to announce that the Lord Jesus Christ himself is ready. Cardinal Wolsey came into the feast after the first course; he came in booted aud spurred, and the guests arose and cheered inL But Christ omes in at the very begming of the feast; aye, he has been waiting eight- een hundred and nlnety-four years for his guests. He has been standing on his manied feet; he has had his sore hand on his punctured side; or he has been pressing hm laeerated temples waiting, waiting. It is wonderful that he has not been impatient, and that he has not said, "Shut the door "and let the laggard stay out;" but he has been waiting. No banqueter ever waited for his guests so patiently as Christ has waited for us. To prove how willing he is to neceive s. I gather all the tears that rolled down his cheeks in sympathy for your sorrows; I gather all thedrops of blood that channeled his brow, and his back, and his hands and feet, in trying to purchase your redemption; I gather all the groans that he uttered in midnight chill, and in mountain hunger, and in desert loneliness, and twist them into one cry--bitter, agonizing, overwhelm- ing. I gather all gae pains that shot from spear and spike and cross jolt- ing into on pangoreless, grind- ing, excruciating. I!%le ,that one drop of sweat on his brow,' and under the gospel glass that drop enlarges until [ see in it lakes of sorrow and an ocean of agony. That being standing before you now, emaciated, and gashed, and gory, coaxes for ybur love with a pathos in which every word is a heartbreak and every sentence a martyrdom. How can you think he trifle hasuerus pupated a feast for 180 days; but this feast is for all eternity. Lords and princes were invited to that; you, and I, and all our world are in- vited to this Christ is ready. You know hat the banqueters of olden time used to wrap themselves in robes prepared for the occasion; so, my Lord Jesus ath wrapped himself in all that is beautiful. See how fair he is! His ey his brow, his "cheek, so radiant hat the stars hve no gleam and {he moning no brilliancy compared with it. His face reflecting all the joys of heredvemed, his hand having the ore- nipotent surgery with which he opened, blind eyes, and straightened crooked limbs, and hoisted the pillars of heaven, and swung the twelve gates which are twelve pearls. There are not enough cups in heaven to dip up this ocean of beauty. There are not lad- ders enough to scale this height of love. There are not enough cymbals to clap, or harps to thrum, or trumpets to peal forth the praises of this one al- together fair. Oh. thou flower of eter- mty, thy breath is the perfume of heaven! Oh, blissful daybreak, let all people clap their hands in thy radi- ance! Chorus! Come. men. and saints. and cherubim, and seraphim, and arch- angel--all heights, all depths, all im- mensities, _ Chorus! Roll him through the heavens in a chariot of universal acclaim, over bridges of hosannas, un- der arches of coronation, along by the great towers chiming with eternal ju- bilee. Chorus! "Unto him who hath loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.to him be glory, world without end!" I have a word of five letters, but no sheet white enough on which to write it, and no pen good enough on which to inscribe it. Give me the fairest leaf from the heavenly recordsgive me the weneil with which the angel records his victory--and then, with my hand strung to supernatural ecstasy, and my pen dipped in the light of the morning, I will write it out in capitals of love: "J-E-S-U-S/' It is this Oe, infinitely fair, to whom you are invited. Christ is waiting for you; waiting as a ban- quoter waits for the delayed guest-- the meats smoking, the beakers brim- ming, the minstrels with fingers on the stiff string, waiting for the clash of the hoofs at the gateway. Waiting for you as a mother waits for her son who went off ten years ago. dragging her bleeding heart along with him. Waiting! O! give me a comparison in- tense enough, hotenongh, importunate enough to express my meaning--some- thing high as heaven, and deep as hell, and long as eternity. Not hoping that you can help me with such a compari- son I will say: "He is waiting as only the all-sympathetic Christ can walt for the coming back of a lost soul." Bow the knee and kiss the Son, Come, and welcome, sinner; come. Again. the Itoly Spirit is ready. Why is it that so many sermons drop dead-- that Christian songs do not get their wing under the people that so often prayer goes no higher than a hunter's "holloa?" It is because there is a llnk wanting--the work of the Holy Spirit. Unless that Spirit give grappling hooks to a sermon, and lift the prayer, and waft the song, everything is a dead failure. That Spirit is willing to come at our call and lead you to eternal life, or ready to come with the same power with which he unhorsed Saul on the Damascus turnpike, and broke down Lydia in her fine store, and lifted the three thousand from midnight into midnoon at the Pentecost. With that power the Spirit of God now beats at the gate ot your soul Have you not noticed what homely and insigni- ficant instrumentality the Spirit of God employs for man's conversion? There was a man on a Hudson river boat to whom a tract was offered. With indignation he tore it up and threw it overboard. But one frag- ment lodged on his eoatsleeve, and he saw on it the word "eternity," and he found no peace until he was prepared for that great future. Do you know what passage it was that caused Mar- tin Luther to see the truth? "The just shall live by faith." Do you know there is one--just one--passage that brought Aurustine from a life of dis- sipation? "Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof." It was just one passage that con- verted * Hedley Vicars, %he great soldier, to Christ: "The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from all sin." Do you know that the tIoly Spirit used one passage of scripture to save Jonathan Edwards? "Now, unto the king, eter- nal, immortal, invisible the only wise God, our Savior. be glory." Oneyear ago on Thanksgiving day I read for my text: "O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy en- dureth forever." And there is a young man in the house to whose heart the Holy Spirit took that text for his eter- nal redemption. I might speak of my own case. I will tellyou I was brought to the peace of the gospel through the Syro-Phcenieian woman's cry to Christ: "Even the dogs eat of the crumbs that fall from the master's table." Do you know that the Holy Spirital- most always uses iusigniflc:nt means? Eloquent sermons never save anybody; metaphysical sermons never save any- body; philosophical sermons never save anybody. But the minister comes some Sabbath to his pulpit, worn out with engagements and the jangling of a fren.ied door bell ; he has only a text and two or three ideas, but he says: "O, Lord, help me. Here are a good many people I may never meet again. I have not much to say. Speak thou through my poor lips;" and before the service is done there are tearful eyes and a solemnity like the judgment. The great French orator, when the dead kmg lay hefore him, looked up and cried: "God only is great;" and the triumph of his eloquence has been told by the historians. But I have not heard that one soul was saved by the ora- torical flourish. Worldly critics may think that the early preaching of Thomas Chalmers was a masterpiece. But Thomas Chalmers says he never began to preach until he came out of the sick room. white and emaciated, and told men the simple story of Jemts. In the great day of eternity, it will be found'that the mostsouts have been brought to Christ. not by the Bossuets, and Massitlons, and Bourdaloues, but by humble men who. in the strength of God, and believing in the eternal Spirit, invited men to Jesus. There were wise salves--tlere were excellent ointments, I suppose, in the time of Christ, for blind or inflamed eyes. But Jesus turned his back upon I them. and put the tip of his finger to his tongue, and then, with the spittle that adhered to the finger, he anointed the eyes of the blind man. and daylight poured into his blinded soul. So it is now that the Spirit of God takes that humble prayer- meeting talk, which seems to be the very saliva of Christian influence, and anoints the eyes of the blind, and pours the sunlightof pardon and peace upon the soul. O, my friend. I wish we eou!d feel it more and more, that if any good is done it is by the power of God's omnipotent Spirit. I do not know what hymn may bring you to Jesus. I do not know what words of the scripture lesson I read may save your soul. Perhaps the Spirit of God may hurl the very text into your heart: "Come, for all things are now ready. "" Again, the church is ready. Oh man, if I could take the curtain off these Christian hearts, I could show you a great many anxieties for your redemption. You think that old man is asleep, because his head isdown and his eyes are shut. No. he is praying for your redemption, and hoping that tim words spoken may strike your heart. Do you know the air is full of prayer? Do you know that prayer is going up from Ful- ton street prayer-meeting, and from Friday evening prayer-meeting, and going up every hour of the day for the redemption of the people? And if you should just start toward the door of the Christian Church. how quickly it would fly open. Hundreds of people would say: "Give that man room at the sacrament. Bring the silver bowl for his baptism. Give him the right hand of Christian fellowship. Bring him into all Christian associations." Oh, you wanderer on the cold mountains, come into the warm sheepfold. I let down the bars and bid you come in. With the Shepherd's crook I point you the way. Hundreds of Christian hands beckon you into the Church of God. A great many people do not like the ehureh, and say it is a great mass of hypocrites; but it is a glorious church with all its imperfections. Christ bought it, and hoisted the pillars, and swung its gates, and lifted its arches. and curtained it with upholstery crim- son with crucifixion carnage. Come into it. We are a garden walled around Chosen and made peculiar ground: A little spot enclosed by grace, Oat of the world's wild wilderness. Again, the angels of God are ready. A great many Christians thinkthat the talk about angels is fanciful. You say it is a very good subjeet for theologi- cal students who have just begun to sermonize: but for older men it is im- proper. There is no more proof iu that Bible thatthere is a God thsn that there are angels Why, do not they swarm about Jacob's ladder? Are we not told that they conducted Laza- rusupward? that they stand before the throne, their faces covered up with their Wing, while they cry: "Holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty!" Did not David see thousands and thou- sands? Did not one angel slay one hundred and eighty-five thousand men in Sennacherib's army? And shall they not be the chief harvesrs at the judgment? There is a line of loving, holy, mighty angels reaching to heaven. [ suppose they reach from here to the very gate. and whe an audience is assembled for Christian worship, the air is full of them. If each one of you have a guardian angel, how many celestials there are here. They crowd the place, they hover, they flit about, they rejoice. Look. that spirit is just come from the throne. A momentago it stood before Christ and heard the doxology of the glorified. Look! Bright immortal, what news from the golden city! Speak, spirit blest! The response comes melting on the air: "Come, for all things are now ready!" Angels ready to bear the tidings, angels ready to drop the benediction, angels ready to kindle the joy. They have stood in glory--they know all about it. They have felt the joy that is felt where there are no tears and no graves: immortal health but no invalidism; songs, but no groans: wedding bells, but no funeral torches--eyes that never weep --hands that never blister--heads that never faint--hearts that never break-- friendships that are never weakened. Again, your kindred in glory are all readhr for your coming. I pronounce modern spiritualism a fraud and a sham. If John Milton and George Whitefield have no better business than to crawl under a table and rattle the leaves, they had better stay at home in glory. While I believe that modern spiritualism is bad, because of its mental and domestic ravwges, common seise, enlightened by the Word of God, teaches us that our friends in glory sympathize with our redemption. This Bible says plainly there i joy in heaven among the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth; and if angels rejoice and know of it, shall not our friends, stand- ing among them, know it? Some of these spirits in glory toiled for your redemption. When they came to die, their chief grief was that you were nol a Christian. They said: "Meet me in heaven," and put their hand out from the cover and said: "Good-by." Now, suppose you should cross over from a sinful life to a holv llfe. Suppose you should he born into the kingdom. Sup- pose you should now say: "Farewell, O deceitful worldI Get thee gone my sin! Fie upon all the follies! OChrist help me or I perish! I take thy prom- ise. l believe thy word. I enter thy service." Suppose you should say and do this? Why, the angel sent to you would shout upward: "He is comiug!" and the angel, poising higher in the air, would shout it upward: "He is coming;" and it would run all up the line of light, from wing to wing, and from trumpet to trumpet, until it reached the gate; and then it would flash to "the house of many mansions," and it would find out your kindred there, and before your tears of repent- ance had been wiped from the cheek, and before you had finished your first prayer, your kindred in glory would know of it, and another heaven would be added to their joy, and they would cry: "My prayers are answered: another loved one saved. Give me a harp with which to strike the joy. Saved! saved! saved!" If I have shown you that "all things are ready," that Christ is ready, that the Holy Spirit is ready, that the church is ready, tlmt the angels in glory are ready, that your glorified kindred are ready, then with all the concentrated emphasis of my soul, I ask you if you are ready? You see my subject throws the whole re- sponsibility upon yourself. If you do not get in to the King's banquet, it is because you do not accept the invita- tion. You have the most importunate invitation. Two arms stretched down from the cross, soaked in blood from elbow to finger-tip; two lips quvermg m mortal anguish: two eyes beaming with infinite love. saying: "Come.come, for all things are now ready." I told you that when the queen came to Kenilworth castle, they stopped all the clocks, that the finger of time might be pointed to that happy moment of her arrival. Oh!. if the King would come to the castle of your soul, you might well afford t() stop all the clocks, that the hands might forever point to this moment as the one most bright, most blessed, most tremendous. Now, I wish I could go around from circle to circle and invite every one of you, aceordinr to the invitation of my text, saying: "Come!" I would liketo take every one of you by the hand, andsay: "Come!" Old man. who hast been wandering sixty or seventy years, thy sun almost gone down, through the dust of the evening stretch out your withered hand to Christ. He will not cast thee off. old man. Oh! that one tear of repentance might trickle down thy wrinkled cheek. After Christ has fed thee all thy life long, do you not think you can afford to speak one word in his nraise? Come. those of you who are farthest away from God. Drnnkard! Christ can put out the fire of thy thirst. He can break that shackle. He can re- store thy blasted home. Go to Jesus. Libertine! Christ saw thee where thou wert last night. He knows of thy sin. Yet, if thou wilt bring thy polluted soul to him this moment" he will throw over it the mantle of his pardon and .love. Mercy for thee. Of thou chief of sinners. Harlot! thy feet foul with hell, and thy laughter the horror of the street--oh. Mary Magdalen look to Jesus. Mercy for thee. poor lost waif of the street! Self-righteous man, thou must be born again, or thou canst not see the kingdom of God. Do you think you can get into the feast with those rags? Why, the King's servant would tear them off and leave you naked at the gate. You must be born again. The day is far spent. The cliffs begin to slide their long shadows across the plain. Do you know the feast has already begun the feast to which you were invited--and the King sits with his guests, and the servant stands with his hand on the door of the banqueting room. and he begins to swing it shut. It is half- way shut. It is three-fourths shut. It is only just ajar. Soon it will be shut. "Come. for all things are now ready." I Have I missed one mau'? Who has not felt himself called this hour? Then I call him now. This is the hour of thy redemption. While God invites, how blest the day, How sweet the Gospel's charming sound Come sinner, haste, oh. haste away, While yet a pardoning God is found. SAYINOS "AND DOINGS.
