It has been stated of oar leadlnir juen that God by business God.) and many remarks have been made concerning that expression by persons opposed to us, with tha desire of taming It to ridicule. Itbas not been stated-ly-anof our brethren that God Is only a business God, bat the remark was made w'tli reference ta some of H in attrthntes and of His works.-- ' The people ut the to bcllcre Inpresent clay who profess have God, generally speaking, very littie tuea ia regard to wnai ue u. ' u uer conalderthat Ma Is Incompreheujiole. Their ideas concerning llim are very vasrue. and the attemnts which hava bt-emade to explain God to the chil dren oi men, oy persons who claim to be teachers of religion and to have a to speak" in the name of the Lord, are of such a character that no one can understand them. .The reason of this 1st becauo t those persons who have attempted to make an explanation have not understood the person subject themselves, and when a lV does not understand a thing it very difficult for him to try and make soiiid body else understand it. Now, 1 do not preteni to say that thereto anybody living who fully and entirely comprehends God ; but there are naoy people living who have some detliiite idea concerning Him, concerning UL attributes, concerning His ways, conand "What iney uncerning His will; derstand they are at- liberty to declare tud to try and make other people If they are called npon by tbe Lord and authorized by Llim so to do. People very frequently rtfer to that passage of Scripture which says t "God is a spirit, and as their notions concerning what spirit Is, are not very clear, that passage of Scrip ure-does not make very plain to their understanding what God Is.' People,' an Idea that geneftlly speaking, have spirit Is something intangible,-.somethinthat cannot be comprehended, nor seeu, nor handled; that 4 1. is far different In every respect froin anything that Is material; in fact, the Dhllosoohersand theologians call snlrit "immaterial sabstahceJ i Now, this is for wantef Juio wing, fetter. Men In these times, like men la former days, have tried to find out God and the things of God by human wisdom and learning, and they have failed t for "man by searching' the Scripture says, "cannot find jout GodJN Bu (iod, can manifest Himself to man; and if God chooses to make- Himself manifest to His children they can mea surably comprehend Him.

In this state of probation In which we live, mankind cannot.fuily Deity to comprehend Him as He Srasp i majesty, and raight. aad powt or and glory; bat, as I i saut, they cad rueasirably comprehend God when He manifests Himself to them, and they can understand Him to the extent that He manifests Himself to them. According to the book called the BU Die, God the Eternal Father has uianl tested Himself at different times to ludlvlduais living upon the face of this earth, and according ta the testimony ol the Latter-da- y Saints, God ; has manifested Himself In this age of the world in a similar way to men whom He called and appointed to act ia III name f and from what we read of God's revelations ii former days as well as in latter days, we learn that He i a person, an individual; that He id not a myth, not an imaginary being, but a in the form reality, and that Heorisin other and likeness of man, words, tuat man is made in the image of God. the book of In the opening Bible, in very first chapter of that book, we read: "And God said, Let us make -- - lsa "- - Absolutely Pure; This powder sever varMs. ' A butt! e( and wbolesomeneaa.

God is a spirit; but it does not follow that because God Is a spirit, He has noform.no shape, no extent, no limit ; or that He can be, as an individual in every place at the same time, as many people imagine; .We are told that God dwells in heaven, and when Jesus Christ was upon the earth lie always taugat His discjpies that their Father was lu heaven, lie said' that as lie' came from the Tather so He was going back to the Father. This individual, then, has a location, a place, of residence, r He He dwells position, occupies a certain &nt-i- ie maae man in in His image, in His likeness. Jesus, we are told, was hi the "express imaffe"of His Father's person. When lie was upon the earth lie came tc represent His Father, and we are told concerning Hi in, "Who, being lo the form of God.tho-aanfIt net robbery to be equal with God." And the Apostle Paul, who makes this declaration, advised his brethren to have the same mind in them that was ta Christ Jesus: " Let this mind be in you which was- also ia ... Christ Jesna: 1. It Who, being in the form of God, : thought i God with be not robbery to equal But uiado Uimaelf of no reputation, and took upon Hi na thsfornt of a servant, and wni made in tha likeness of men : I And beiny found In fashion as a man, He humbled liiqiself, and beome obedieut no-' lo death, even the dsati) of the cross.

The seed of an apple, when it Is reproduced, brings forth an apple, and so with a pear, and so with a and so with all the varieties of plum, the vegetable kingdom. It is the same with all the varieties of the animal kingdom., The doctrine of evolution, as it is called, is true ia some respects that Is, that species can be Improved, exalted, made better, but it remains of the same species. Tne advancement Is In the same line. It Is unfoldment. We do not find anv radical change from oue species to another. It is an eternal principle that every seed produces It own kind, not another kind. And as we are the children of God we can follow out the idea and perceive what Go J cru r Father is, the Being who is the progenitor of our splrtual existence, the being from whom we have sprung. We belli;; the seed of God. that is a personality, an Individual, a Being being In some respects like- us, or rather we r are made in His Image. j "Man also Id spirit," we ard told ia the revelations of God to the Latter-da- y Saints. Man, the real man, is a dwells in a spirit, aan individual that clothed body, spiritual person upon a beiug who will live when with earth; the earth goes back to mother dust. Mail's spirit, then, is an individual, a personality, and the spirit is In the likeness and shape of the body which it inhabits. When the spirit goes out if the body there Is a person, a pert fectly formed Individual, looking like the body which we now see with oar natural eyes. ' Spirits living i in the ilesh, unless operated upon abnormally by some spiritual influence, cannot see A spirit can see spiritual beings. spirit. Spirit ministers to spirit; and lioit the spirit goes out Of the body t h.tt j irit can see other spirits, beings ol tae tame character and nature, and we shall find when we have emerged from this body that we will" be In the company of a preat many persons like ourselves; and if we should have t:.e experience that the Prophet Joseph hail when the mob took him and tore his flesh with their nails and tried to him with a. vial of some corpoison rosive substance, If our spirits should be separated from our bodies as his was we, like him, could look at our bodies aud see that they are In form like our living spiritual realities. . "The body without the spirit Is dead." The spirit without the bodv U not dead; that Is a real personality,!!.' living individual, and the body of flesh Is but a house to dwell in or a covering for it, to wear; not essential to its existence but essential to Its progress, essential to Its experience- - an,- the earth and ultimately in its giorined condition, essential to its eternal happiness, and progress and; power In the v i , .; presence of the Father. While our Fatherthen, Is a person, an Individual, it may, be asked i "How can He be here, there and everywhere at the same timer" Well, He la not, in His personality; but He can be omnipresent in a certain sense. There ia a spirit, an influence, that proceeds from God that fills the Immensity of space, the Holy Spirit, the Light of a planet cr Truth. As the sun Itself, heavenly body, is not- - present in any other place except that which tt actually occupies, so the individual Father occupies a certain locality; and as the light that proceeds from the sua spreads abroad upon all the face of the earth and lights up other planets a? well as this earth, penetrating to the circumference of an extended circle in the midst of God's great universe, so the light of God, the Spirit of God, proceeding fortn from the presence of God, "tills the immensity of space." it Is the lighr and the life of all things. It is the light and the life of man. It it the life of the animal creation. It Is the life of the vegetable creation. It is In the earth on which we stand; it ia in the stars that shine in the firmament ; it is in the moon that reflects the light of the sun; it is in the sun and la the light of the sun. and th t power by which it was made; and these grosser illuminate the particles of light that heavens and enable us to behold the works of nature, are from that same Spirit which enlightens our minds and unfolds the things of God. As that lisrbt comes forth from the son so the light of God comes to us.! That natural light is the grosser substance or particles of the same Spirit, i Spirit is a substance, it Is not Immaterial; It may have some properties that are different from that which we see aud handle, which we call matter, but it is a reality, a substantial reality. And spirit can understand spirit and grasp spirit. A spiritual person can take the hand of another spiritual person and it is substantial. A person in a body could not grasp a spirit, for that spirit has different properties to those of our bodies, and it is governed by different laws to those that govern n.4 In this sphere of mortality. A spiritual substance, organized Into form, occupies room and space Just as much lu Its sphere as these natural ' particles in this occupy space ...... ' Ta.Kam . U sphere.

And so with peo ple who d well upon other planets, they are tbe offspring oi uod. And our Father and our God is an Individual, a is a spirit, and they personality ; He that worship Ulra must worship Him in spirit and in truth; but He dwells lu a tabernacle, in a body,, though that body Is different from our bodies, it being a spiritual body. It Is quicken ed by spirit. Our bodies are quickened suDstance wnicu Dytnat we call corruptive blood; but our Heavenly Father's body is Quickened by snlrlt.lt Is not governed by tte same lawa aa those by which earthly bodies are governed. It Is a body something similar to that which Jesus had after Ills resurrection.

Iti Is body was quickened br spirit, "lie was put to death ln the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit," so we are told In the Scriptures, and He was raised up from the dead by that Spirit.
