The
Great Uni9n General, -Assembly

. Marvellous Scenes of Great Joy. A SeaSOTJ of Spir.itual Blessing . .
'flie great. General. Assembly, which
had been lookec1 forward to with eager
and joyOUS f!)r some time,
because of the consummation of the
union between the Pentecostal Church
of tl!e Nazarene anj. . the Holiness
Church of Christ, has come and closed.
for the union were prac-
. .tically made at the Chicago Assembly
last year. Pilot Point, Texas, was the
place : chosen to have the marriage
. ceremony perforiped, and arrangements
made to sLt us housekeeping together
to push the work of holiness which is .
cl ca.!-' to
The for . holding the
Assemb_y as perfect _as C<?Uld be
expected. The large auditorium tent,
holding 1000 people, as well as other
large and small tents for committee
were alt that could be desired;
and as the Assembly got well under .
way fully 200 ministerial and lay "dele-
gates were present. From the very
first the whole services seemed to
breathe with-- the spirit of humility and
holy triumph, arid as we looked on the
eager, joyous faces at the first .session, .
we saw that the Assembly "\;ould be one
of grace and glory, which at the close
was more than fully realized.
Dr. P. F. Bresee, the senior General
Superintendent, was the wise, judi.cious
and inspiring presiding officer of the
Assembly; and ably guided the
erations of this important body_ through
the many intricate but necessary mat-
t ers of the union.
It take too much space here
to give all the details "of this great
union Assembly, but there are some im-
portant interests which had to be har-
monized and brought into oneness.
The Holiness Church of Christ in
.-operation, - missionary; educll"
tional and .publishing interests; all of
. these came into the union along with
the church, and so. were broug,lt
the control of our b_oards, while
at the same time things had to be so not be barren of manir"estations of grel\,t

arranged that they could be carried on joy-1: Tnne after time;. even in the busi-
. as be'f<,>re and placed. in the hands of . ness sessions, the pent-up feeli..xigs of
those most thoroughly acquainted with the brethren would burst. forth. But
their lvorkings. These interests entail , it was left for the consummation of the

church a greater degree of earnest joy of oneness of heart and purpose in

GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
As was expected this Assembly. has
been momentous and historic. It has
. '
been. at10ther epoch ushering in. an era
of still greater things. . It has been
said that " there is n o clock in . the
horolo-ge of time to strike the passing
from 'one er a to another.'' '\Vhen his-
tory is bei ng mad e and great things are
coming_ to. pass, those who are in the
often hard and difficult places, strug-
gling for the birth of the greater
things, are so taken .up with the burden
of toil which taxes their being to the.
ntmo.st that they._ little r ealize n ew
heigbts which are being won. Some on&
or a. few may have the vision of what
is reall,v being done, but mostly the '
. actors are cover ed with the dust .and .
smoke of_ battle. But they whom God
leads build better than they kno-..v, and
when the years reveal the unveiled
structure, they are as much surprised -
as any; . possibly the most ' surprised.
Both Napoleon -and the Iron Duke were
. eagle-eyed, . hut probably none ' were
'more surprised at the results of vVater-
loo in history.
''God l eads in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform,''
and it is only as we get a perspective,
that we can see His marvelous work.

tial movement, in all . its confluent
streams. . The work began, east, west,

that done whicl, cannot be undone. You
have given up your prayer, and you
will suffer for. it. Tempta_tion is before
you, and you are not ready to meet it.
There is a guilty feeling on the soul,
and yon linger. at a distance from God.
It is no mar;vcl if that day in whi ch .
