SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION.
A review of this program as a whole
suggests a few thoughts with which we must close.
The facts of history have assuredly
fulfilled the prophetic outline, and yet what a concatenation of improbabilities
it presented! Consider! That a Redeemer should arise from a ruined race,
capable, though the woman?s seed, of grappling with the mighty foe of
God and man; that of the three races of mankind the mightiest should
become the meanest and most degraded, and the least conspicuous the
most enlarged and influential When
Moses recorded the Noahic prediction, the race of Ham was far more prominent
than any other; it was, indeed, the only one exercising empire at the
time. that an aged and childless couple should become the parents
of many nations, and especially of one great and important people; that
a fate terrible as that predicted by Moses for Israel should overtake
that special nation, through whom the world was to be blessed; that
a Jewish king who lived 3, 000 years ago in Palestine should have a
Son who should sit on the throne of God in heaven as well as on an earthly
throne in Zion, and should be adored by angels and by all nations, though
?a reproach of men and despised of the people?; that this great Heir
of the throne of Judah should exercise an everlasting and universal
sway, though a suffering and dying man; that Messiah the Prince, whose
kingdom was to last for ever, should come at a certain predicted time,
and, instead of ruling and reigning, be cut off; and, lastly, that our
Lord should be rejected by the Jews, and executed by the Romans, and
yet conquer the world, without sword or spear, by the force of truth
alone; that He should depart, yet remain with His people to the end
of the age; that Christendom should become so corrupt as to oppose Christ,
and persecute His people to the death; that Rome pagan, becoming Rome
Christian, should prove Rome anti-Christian, and be a far worse foe
to Christianity than ever paganism had beenall these things seemed,
when announced, paradoxical, so unlikely were they ever to occur. Any
one of them was a great improbability, and the entire succession was
simply a stupendous improbability! In no single instance could experience
of an analogous character have suggested these predictions. Human sagacity
could not have foreseen the facts that fulfilled them, nor could imagination
have pictured them. Yet none can question that the course of history
broadly regarded has run precisely on these lines. Historians, ancient
and modern, the inscriptions and monuments of antiquity, the very constitution
and customs of the society amid which we live, all attest that facts
have fallen out in harmony with the prophetic program. There can be
no reasonable doubt entertained as to the dates of these predictions,
nor, consequently, that they preceded their own fulfillment by hundreds
and sometimes by thousands of years. Whatever date be assigned to the
Pentateuch, it certainly preceded the Roman destruction of Jerusalem,
which it minutely predicts; and whatever the date of the Book of Daniel,
it must have been in circulation centuries before the Christian era,
since it appears in the Greek Septuagint version. Yet it predicts the
exact chronology of the First Advent era, and the desolations of the
temple and of Judea, which should follow the rejection of Messiah. Such
announcements of future events cannot, therefore, have been mere fortunate
guesses. If any one thinks it possible that they may have been such,
let him try whether he can describe in advance, in this year 1888, what
will happen in Europe for hundreds and even thousands of years to come;
let him insert the precise dates at which certain events will take place,
and give the chronological measures of the leading episodes of the future
history. The attempt might teach the supernatural nature of the task!
Nor can the long correspondence between
prediction and fulfillment which we have indicated have been brought
about by chance. The law of probabilities forbids the supposition. Chance
might account for a few fulfillments out of many failures, but not for
uniform fulfillment without exception. Chance? What! In fulfillments
as wide as the world and as broad as humanity, and extending over six
millenniums? Impossible Had Daniel?s prophecies been mere guesses at
what the order of history would be, is it likely that he should have
chanced to hit just the right number of the universal Gentile empiresfour,
and only four? Why should he not have guessed six or seven? Why should
he not have made the first the strongest, since Babylon in its might
and magnificence was actually before his eyes, instead of making the
last so? Could he guess at the iron-like strength and universal dominion
of Rome at a time when its first mud wall was the only fortification
of the little cluster of outlaws? huts on the banks of the Tiber? Common
sense revolts at the suggestion! The Tiber and the land through which
it flows were alike buried beneath the mists of an undreamed-of futurity
in Daniel?s day! Was it by chance that he predicted a tenfold division
of Rome?s vast empire? Why did he not make it fivefold or fiftyfold,
if he shot at a venture? Why did he foresee a double existence for this
last of the four empiresa united and a divided? Why did he not attach
this singular feature to Medo-Persia, instead of to Rome? Why did he
not attribute the swiftness of the he-goat to the Persians, and the
heaviness of the bear and the ram to Alexander the Great? How could
he by chance assign his emblems with the perfect appropriateness they
actually exhibit? Could he imagine the strange phenomena with which
the lapse of time has familiarized our mindsthat the old Roman empire
of the sword should pass into the new papal empire of the crozier, and
that millions more should submit to the latter than ever submitted to
the former rule of Rome? No sane man can suppose that happy imaginations
account for this prophet?s brief but accurate outline of the events
of twenty-five centuriesan outline in which experience itself can detect
In the Bible foreview of the history
of 6, 000 years no single instance can be indicated in which events
have falsified the Divine program. This is a startling fact, and an
unquestionable one. It foretells, of course, much that is still future,
much that is not yet fulfilled; but as regards the 6, 000 years that
have passed away, its anticipative outline is invariably correct.
Let it be noted, also, that the evidence
of Divine inspiration afforded by this prophetic program is strictly
cumulative; it grows in strength with each separate fulfillment. Some
of these are on a small scale, as the birth of individuals; others on
a vast one, as the history of Rome; some are national, others ecclesiastic,
and others are political and international. Like all the works of God,
they comprise infinite variety. We need both microscope and telescope
to study them. They contain minute and astronomically accurate statements
of chronology, which it requires some exact erudition to unravel, and
they contain announcements so comprehensive that we must glance over
all lands and ages to appreciate their truth. Their cumulative testimony
is all the more irresistible. From various quarters, and from various
epochs, these prophecies bring each its own witness that the mind which
inspired it was omniscientDivine.
They are all, moreover, evidently the
fruit of one and the same mind, for they unfold one plan. The Bible
program is no mass of disconnected and unrelated predictions. There
are many petals, but one flower; many cantos, but one grand epic; many
chapters, but one book. These prophecies unfold one harmonious scheme
for the redemption of the human race; they carry it steadily forward,
through patriarchal, Levitical, and gospel economies, to ages to come,
when its glorious issue shall be attained. There is no contrariety between
one section and another; they form a consecutive seriespatriarchal,
The channels varied at different times,
but the water that flowed through them was always one and the same.
Abraham and Moses were very unlike Peter and Paul, and the worlds in
which they respectively moved were most dissimilar. But they all unfolded
one revelationthe Lamb slain, and the salvation of our race through
Him. Now this is very noteworthy, for, outside the realm of inspiration,
nothing similar can be found. Can the entire literature of humanity
produce a work wielded into one whole by its own contents, by the unity
of purpose that runs through it, by the identity of its successive prophecies,
and which was yet written by authors some of whom were con- temporary
with the Pharaohs of the pyramids, others with Cyrus and Darius, and
others again with Josephus and Caesar? The lapse of ages alters merely
human religions and philosophies, as it alters customs, manners, and
languages. But the prophetic words of Abraham ?My son, God shall provide
Himself a lamb ?find their illustration in the lambs of the Mosaic ritual,
their echo in John?s ?Behold, the Lamb of God!? and their distant reverberation
in the Apocalyptic ?Worthy is the Lamb that was slain? of the heavenly
hosts hereafter. Nor is it only as regards the First Advent that we
find this absolute agreement in their anticipations between authors
who were separated by long ages one from the other. Enoch, the seventh
from Adam, announced the Second Advent to judge and punish the ungodly;
Daniel does the same, and the apostles quote and confirm both. Moses
foretold the present Jewish dispersion; so did Jesus Himself. Isaiah
and Jeremiah foretold Jewish restoration, and so did Paul. Again we
say, literature has no parallel case. Compare this with the Avestas
of Persia, the Vedas of India, the Koran of Mohammed! ?Holy men of old
spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.? This is the only rational
Note, again, the singular definiteness
of this program. How far removed is it from the elastic, hazy, and purposely
ambiguous utterances of the oracles of antiquity, which were vague enough
to fit any event! Is this the case with Noah?s ethnology? How completely
would his predictions have been falsified by history had he assigned
Shem?s destiny to Japhet, or vice versa! Is it the case with David?
How natural it would have been for him to foretell the glories of his
great Son, and to omit His sufferings and humiliationsto dwell on His
throne in Zion, and omit His prior Melchizedek reign in heaven! The
angularity, order, and exact chronology of Daniel?s predictions again
are as far removed from oracular ambiguity as pole from pole! These
prophetic foreviews admitted of one fulfillment, and of one only. History
must take one certain sharply defined course, or else they would be
palpably falsified. There is nothing general or vague even in the earliest
Eden section of our program, elementary, brief, and enigmatical as it
is. Only one great event could fulfil itthe overthrow of moral evil
and its author by a suffering Redeemer born of woman. So as to the apostolic
outline. It is not content to predict apostasy in a general way, but
it defines beforehand the doctrines of the apostate Church, its geographical.
seat and sphere, and its chronological epoch. This alone is a stamp
of truth. No false oracle would risk its reputation by such precision.
Our program does not grope its way doubtfully along, as a blind man
might do. It marches boldly forward, planting its feet firmly on the
only stepping-stones amid the rushing waters, as one moving with clear,
keen vision and steady tread. Amid ten thousand possibilities it selects
one, and says, with unhesitating authority at each juncture, although
the event be thousands of years ahead, this is what will happenthis,
and nothing else.
Is this the manner of man? or bears
it not rather the stamp and seal of Divinity?
The sublime and dignified moral character
of these prophecies is another proof of their Divine origin. They are
worthy of God. How far are they removed from anything transitory or
trivial, worldly or wicked! Do they subserve any objects of earthly
ambition? do they foster a selfish greed of gain, or pander to pride
and human selfishness? Are they not linked with the promulgation of
a holy, just, and good law, and with the proclamation of a gracious
gospel? Do they not form an integral part of a great economy, the object
of which is avowedly and evidently the moral deliverance of a ruined
race, the removal of alienation between the blessed God and His creature
man, and the everlasting renovation of the earth and of the human race?
The very nature of the plan bespeaks the source whence it emanated!
Redemption as revealed in its gradual development is and can be the
fruit of eternal power and infinite love alone.
In conclusion, then, if the Bible offers
as a pledge of its Divine inspiration a complete program of future history,
if it has recorded in advance the events of ages to come, and placed
the document containing the record in the possession of mankind; if
all the events of the slowly unfolding ages have actually fallen out
according to its prophetic foreview; if all that was predicted has happened,
and nothing has occurred contrary to its program; then, beyond all question,
WE ARE BOUND TO HOLD THE BIBLE TO BE FROM GOD, AND PRACTICALLY TO ACKNOWLEDGE
ITS DIVINE AUTHORITY.
If we reject it, we do so at our peril.
We cannot but recognize that The Infinite Intelligence which created
our finite intelligence has, by an intellectual proof of the most conclusive
kind, commended to us His revelation of Himself and His purposes. He
has given to these last days the supreme miracle of fulfilled prophecy.
We may not say, Had we seen the miracles of Christ, had we been convinced
by ocular demonstration of His supernatural wisdom and power, we would
have believed. Fulfillments of predictions such as we have indicated
are every whit as conclusive evidence of supernatural wisdom and power.
They are miracles in the realm of mind, and higher than any miracles
in the realm of matter. They are also, by their very nature, the proper
miracles of the closing days of dispensations. The lapse of time is
essential to them. The predictions of Christ and of Paul were no miracles
to those that heard them, but they are the mightiest proofs possible
of their Divine inspiration to the generations of the nineteenth century.
Men crave in these days some demonstration
from the unseen world. Here is abundance of such evidence I Here is
clear proof of an unseen and almighty intelligence presiding over human
history, and showing us that He does so by describing beforehand the
whole course of its events. What need we any further proof? The order
of the visible world is evidence of the invisible to him who reads history
in the light of prophecy! He beholds the hand of God in human experience,
and watches the development of the Divine plan in the progress of the
world. He knows, more- over, what events to expect, for he discerns
his own chronological position in the stream of time; and as nine-tenths
of the program have already been fulfilled, he doubts not that the remaining
tenth will be in its predicted and fast- approaching season. And further,
it is clear that if by so many infallible proofs we are convinced that
the Bible as a whole is from God, no difficulties as to the mode of
its inspiration, no scientific or critical objections, should be suffered
to interfere with our hearty and thankful reception of its revelation.
If God has spoken, man is responsible to hear, to believe, and to obey.
And lastly, may we say, that to study the Christian evidences, whether
of this or of any other kind, is merely to examine the foundations of
the house. It is well at times to do this. But it is better to enter
and abide in the house! It is infinitely better to avail one?s self
of its shelter from the stormy blast, to enjoy its rich and spacious
accommodation, to dwell in safety and peace under its blessed roof and
to gaze on the widespread prospect from its windows. There are evidences
of the truth and Divine origin of the Christian faith, blessed be God
!evidences enough to satisfy any candid inquirer. But, oh, that faith
itself the faith or revelation thus evidenced! What thought can measure
its unspeakable preciousness! What tongue can utter, what pen can write,
its glorious soul-satisfying, world- transforming nature and effects!
Darker than midnight is the problem of existence apart from it, blank
as the grave our prospects, whether as individuals or as a race. Man
without a revelation from his Maker, like a rudderless and dismasted
vessel, driven by mighty winds over raging billows towards a rock-bound
coast, drifts helplessly, hopelessly towards destruction. Redeemed man,
enlightened by the beamings of the Sun of righteousness, steers steadily
and peacefully into the desired haven. The pilot is at the helm, home
is in sight, and though the voyage has been dark and dangerous, it is
all but over, and its blessed end and eternal issue is the kingdom of
righteousness and glory, prepared and promised ?from the foundation
of the world.?

FIFTEEN years ago, under a strong sense
of the claims of the heathen on the Christian Church, we were led to
found the EAST LONDON INSTITUTE FOR HOME AND FOREIGN MISSIONS, with
a view to the training of earnest and able Christian young men as Missionaries.
Our reasons for making this effort were
1. THE UTTER INADEQUACY OF THE EXISTING
STAFF OF MISSIONARIES. According to Mr. Keith Johnston?s latest estimates,
the world?s population is now over 1,400 millions. Of this vast number,
less than 400 million are ? even in name ? Christians. The remainder,
of over a thousand millions,
are non-Christians, and for the most part heathen. Amongh this almost
inconceivable mass, Protestant Missionaries are laboring to spread the
gospel, but only in proportion as one
to four hundred thousand souls, so that practically,
800 millions of our fellow creatures may be said to be totally unevangelized.
2. THE CONVICTION WE ENTERTAINED THAT
TO MEET THIS IMMENSE DEMAND FOR MISSIONARIES, THERE EXISTS AN AMPLE
SUPPLY, IF ONLY IT COULD BE UTILIZED. There are numbers of Christian
young men in the various sections of the Church well adapted for missionary
work, and really anxious to devote their lives to it, who are never
likely to do so unless they are helped to secure, first, a suitable
training for the mission field;
and secondly, an introduction
We felt, that in order to do useful
missionary work among the countless tribes of Central Africa, or the
teeming millions of the laboring classes in china, not highly educated
scholars only were needed; that plain, practical
men, if endued with faith, love, zeal, and common sense, might with
suitable training, become exceedingly
useful Missionaries in such spheres; and that the sending forth
of such men might help to solve the difficult problem, how to support
an adequate missionary staff, by proving that in some spheres, at any
rate, missionaries may be sustained at comparatively small cost, while
in others they may become, to a certain extent, self-supporting.
3. THE CONVICTION WHICH WE ALSO ENTERTAINED,
THAT BEFORE MEN ARE SENT FORTH TO DO MISSIONARY WORK AMONG THE HEATHEN,
ABILITY FOR IT SHOULD BE PRACTICALLY TESTED, AND, WHEN FOUND TO EXIST,
DEVELOPED BY PRACTICE IN MISSIONARY WORK AT HOME. Unless a man be a
successful soul-winner in his native land, he is not likely to become
such in China or in Africa; while cumberers of the ground are more to
be dreaded in the mission-field (where their true character and work
can be little observed) than at home. Hence it was considered that the
special training given to candidates for foreign missions should consist
partly of practice in home missions. The preparation for all ordinary work consists
in the actual doing of it,
not merely in gaining a theoretical knowledge of how it ought to be
done. There seems to be no good reason why mission work should be an
exception to the rule.
The East of London, with its mass of
a million of the working classes, multitudes of whom have, as is well
known, lapsed into practical heathenism, was consequently selected as
a suitable locality for A TRAINING HOME FOR MISSIONARY VOLUNTEERS.
THE INSTITUTE WAS OPENED IN MARCH 1873.
IT IS BROADLY CATHOLIC IN ITS PRINCIPLES; it trains men of all evangelical
denominations, of all nationalities, and of all classes; and it trains them for all societies,
all lands, and all spheres of Christian effort. It is as comprehensive
as it is possible to be, within the limits of evangelical truth.
The students have been of various nationalities;
not only English, Scotch, Irish, and American, but French, German, Italian,
Spanish, Swedish, Danish, Russian, Bulgarian, Syrian, Egyptian, Kaffir,
Negro, Hindoo, Parsee, Koordish, and Jewish: and they have been of various
denominations. Those of them who have gone forth as missionaries are
now connected with about twenty different societies and associations.
MORE THAN FIVE HUNDRED MISSIONARIES
? former students in the Institute ? are now laboring in England, Ireland,
Scotland, France, Italy, Holland, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria,
Finland, and Russia; Norway, China, Japan, India, Syria, and Turkey;
North, South, East, and West Africa, and the Cape Verde Islands, the
United States, Canada, Brazil, Jamaica, the Argentine Republic, Australia,
and New Zealand. The object of the Institute is especially to send evangelists
to "the Regions Beyond" those already evangelized.
The present branches, and operations
of the Institute, are as follows ?
1. A CENTRAL COLLEGE AND TRAINING HOME
? HARLEY HOUSE, BOW, E., ? where forty men of proved Christian character,
volunteers for Foreign Mission Service, receive a course of special
instruction and practical preparation for the important and arduous
work to which they aspire, either as General or Medical Missionaries.
2. A SIMILAR COLLEGE AND TRAINING HOME
IN DERBYSHIRE ? HULME CLIFFE COLLEGE, CURBAR ? where, in addition to
the usual educational and evangelistic training, a knowledge of practical
agriculture and other useful arts is imparted in connection with the
farms attached to it. This College likewise accommodates forty men.
3. A FEMALE BRANCH ? DORIC LODGE, BOW
ROAD ? where there are trained young women looking forward to service
in the Foreign Mission field.
4. BERGER HALL, BROMLEY ? a center of
the Home Mission work, in connection with which the students receive
practical training. Large Sunday and night schools, mother?s meetings,
temperance meetings, and the preaching of the Gospel, are constantly
carried on here and elsewhere in East London.
5. HOME MISSIONS are carried on, as
a part of their training, by the students of the Institute, in very
many other missions and evangelistic efforts both in town and country.
6. FOUR HUNDRED FACTORY GIRLS, and as
many rough lads, are reached regularly every night, through evening
classes in Berger and Harley Halls (the latter also belonging to the
Institute), by the Deaconesses and Students. And as a result of the
Home Mission work in East London, three large and flourishing Churches
have grown up in Stratford, Hackney, and South Bromley.
7. SEVERAL HUNDRED CHILDREN are taught
in the Sunday Schools belonging to and sustained by the Institute in
8. A PASSAGE AND OUTFIL ASSOCIATION
connected with the Institute has defrayed the cost of sending out Missionaries
? a large number of young evangelists to the colonies, as well as of
Missionaies to the heathen.
IT WAS FORESEEN THAT IN ORDER TO MEET
THE NECESSITIES OF THE CASE, THE COURSE OF TRAINING WOULD HAVE TO BE
GIVEN GRATUITOUSLY, as most of the applicants for admission would be
unable to defray their own expenses, since their entering the Institute
would necessitate their relinquishing the employments by which they
had previously supported themselves. Such has proved to be the case
with ninety-nine out of every hundred of the students who have been
received. The Institute consequently involves a considerable expenditure,
the ordinary expense being at the rate of about ú50 a year for each
of the students in training, and a considerable sum besides being expended
in the maintenance of home mission work.
The Institute is conducted in faith
in God, and is wholly dependent on the free will offerings of Christian
friends of all denominations.
THE BIBLICAL INSTRUCTION is designed
to give a clear grasp of the fundamental truths and evidences of Christianity.
In addition to the ordinary routine of an English education, the students
are instructed in the Greek of the New Testament, in scientific knowledge,
and, when needful, in modern languages. Those of them who are preparing
to become medical missionaries attend the School of Medicine at the
Young men desirous of devoting their lives to Foreign Missions are invited
to write to the Directors.
