All tho weakness, cor
ruptibility and dishonor to which tho
body ha been subjected on account
of sin will bo exchanged for Incorrup-
ilon, glory, honor and Immortality. (1
Cor. xv., 42-68), Where there Is no
decay or corruption there can be uo
old ago. Thla wn remotely antici
pated by Kllhu, where ha represents
an old afflicted skeleton of a once
powerful man returning to tha days
of hi youth, "HI fleih shall bo frosti
er than n child'; he ahall return to
tho day of hi youth." (Job xill.,
10-25.) Tlio Psalmist also say of the
man whoso llfo ha been redeemed
from destruction that ho shall have
hla "youth renewed like tho eagle's."
(IV. cut., 3-0.) And Jesus says: "Lto
hold I make all Uilugs now." (Rev.
xxl 1-6.) From thla It appears that
tho earth, together with all Its re
deemed Inhabitants, ahall eventually
be rehabilitated upon the original plan
of Immortal youth. Age will pass
away as winter, and the prlng of
childhood will bloom out Into tho fra
grant mid luxurious summer of Im
mortal youth. Those who wore once
old nnd Infirm will resumo tha appear
ance of their youth and experlouco
again, Its health and enjoyments, eu
rlched a thousand-fold by tho knowl
edge and experience of manhood mid
old ago. They shall look out upon the
I renewed nnd glorified earth through

Joyful sounds with tho ear of youth,
