Some who have read DAWN VOL. II. attentively, are inquiring whether the Apostle's statement concerning the Lord's Supper, that it shows forth the Lord's death till he come (1 Cor. 11:26), should not be understood to limit its observance and to make it no longer proper. We answer, No; it will be proper to celebrate our Lord's death and our consecration, to be dead with him, down to the time when we shall complete our sacrifice by actually dying, and until we partake of the new wine (joys) of the kingdom with our Lord.

The expression "till he come," does not indicate the discontinuance of the observance after the Lord's arrival, until he shall have fully gathered his jewels. A similar expression is found in James 5:7—"Be patient, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord." No one certainly would [page 3] understand the apostle to mean that the brethren should lose their patience at the time of the Lord's coming. Rather they will need still more patience, as they will the more appreciate the Memorial Supper, in the parousia [presence] of the Son of man, until the course of the church is finished.
