The Committee, after several sessions, decided upon inviting the Brethren whose papers form this volume to take part in the pro posed Conference, to be held in the Pavilion erected by the proprietors of the Queen’s Royal Hotel, on the site of the Tent, in which the Believers’ meeting was held in 1883.

A BEAUTIFUL pavilion has recently been erected by the Queen’s A Royal Hotel Company, on Conference Hill, Niagara, overlooking the broad river of that name and lake Toronto. Oh, this lovely and restful spot a considerable company of believers gathered July 14, 1885, to study the Sacred Scriptures with regard to the “Second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The meeting was called, as will be seen on the preceding page, by a number of well known ministers of the Gospel, and prominent gentlemen connected with His church, irrespective of denominational differences; and they discovered, as so many have found in a happy experience, the power of “that blessed hope” to unite the hearts of Christians in delightful fellowship, and in the fervor of increased love for a common Savior,
The first hour was devoted to praise and prayer. The passage of God’s Holy Word selected for the opening service was Acts 1:1 – 14; and it includes and sets forth the great truths which brought the Conference together. First, it presents to us a risen Christ, manifesting Himself to be alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, as He was seen by His disciples through forty days, while He spoke to them of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. Second, the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel is distinctly implied, as He did not rebuke the Jewish expectations of His followers, but only their curiosity to know the times or seasons. Third, He informs them that during the period intervening before the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel, they will receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon them. Fourth, this power is to be wielded in witnessing, not concerning themselves, nor the Church, nor human progress, but unto Him. Fifth, having so spoken, a cloud received Him out of their sight, and he took His way to the right hand of the Majesty on high, Sixth, the same Jesus shall so come in like manner as he was seen to go into heaven, bodily, literally, visibly, and to the Mount of Olives. Seventh, immediately afterward the apostles, together with the women, all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication.
The papers that follow must speak for themselves; and it is earnestly hoped that they will at least be read with unprejudiced minds by many of God’s dear children, who desire to know something of a doctrine which shines on almost every page of the New Testament, and occupies so large a part of the Old. It is also asked of those who know the truth, that they will implore the blessing of God to accompany the circulation of this little book to the praise of our coming Lord.
