He is noted for his analytical interpretations of the Holy Bible and for dedicating his life and resources to the preaching of the future establishment of a Golden Age on Earth. According to Mr. Russell’s research of the Holy Bible, God’s Kingdom would rule the Earth through Christ. Among the most well-known of his works is the seven-volume series, “Studies in the Scriptures.” Today, we will read an excerpt from Volume 1 of Charles Taze Russell’s “Studies in the Scriptures” titled, “The Divine Plan of the Ages.” 
“Paul declares that this mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations now made manifest to His saints, is ‘CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY.’ This is the great mystery of God which has been hidden from all previous ages, and is still hidden from all except a special class - the saints, or consecrated believers. But what is meant by ‘Christ in you?’ We have learned that Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit, and thus we recognize Him to be the Christ - the Anointed - for the word Christ signifies anointed.” 
“And, dearly beloved, many blows and much polishing must we endure - much transforming must we undergo, and much conforming to His example, under the direction of the great Master-builder; and in order to have the ability and ideality of the Builder displayed in us, we will need to see that we have no cross-grained will of our own to oppose or thwart the accomplishment of His will in us; we must be very childlike and humble – ‘clothed with humility; for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.’ Let us humble ourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time, as He has exalted our Head and Forerunner.”
