This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1878 edition. Excerpt: ...ahead, and the dying Christian goes over dry-shod on coral beds and flowers of heaven and paths of pearl. "Oh, could wo make our doubts remove, These gloomy doubts that rise, And view the Canaan that we love With unbeclouded eyes! "Could we but climb where Moses stood, And view the landscape o'er, Not Jordan's stream nor death's cold flood Could fright us from the shore." Again: This Jordanic passage teaches me the completeness of everything that God does. When God put an invisible dam across the Jordan and it halted, it would have been natural, you would suppose, for the waters to overflow the region round about, so that great devastation would have taken place. But when God put a dam in front of the river, He put a dam on either side of the river, so, according to the text, the waters halted and reared and stood there, not overflowing the surrounding country. Oh the completeness of everything God does! One would think if the water of Jordan had dropped until it was only two or three feet deep, that the Israelites might have inarched through and have come up on the other bank with soaked and saturated garments, as men come ashore from a shipwreck, and that would have been a wonderful deliverance. So it would. But God does something better than that. One would suppose, if the water had been drawn off from the Jordan there would have been a bed of mud and slime through which the army would have had to march. Draw off the water from the Hudson or the Connecticut, and there would be many days, and perhaps many weeks, before the sediment would dry. Yet here, immediately, God prepares a path through the depths of the Jordan. It is so dry the passengers do not even get their feet damp. Oh the completeness of everything that God does!...
