but the notice is not .'absolutely, reliable. It
simply means that a storm is now traveling over
a certain area in a certain direction at. a cer
tain velocity and that if it keeps on in tbe same
direction at the same speed and does not go up
or around or stop, it wjll reach a certain point
at a certain time. . ,
The head of tbe weather b,ureau, so. the story
goes, called up President-elect Taft the night
before inauguration li? 1009, and predicted nice
weather for March 4. A little later, a storm
stole in from the east, and. Inauguration Day was
the worst in years.
THE MIRACLE OF THE MEAL AND OIL
If the Bible is to be believed Elijah forecasted
the weather. He predicted a drought and it
came; he was told where to go,, and he went.
When the brook dried upt he was instructed
to go to a widow's house and find f,ood. He
obeyed, and he found the widow to whose home
he had been sent, but the "poor woman was in
no position to feed a stranger. When he asked
her for food she explained to him very frankly
that she had but a Uttl0- meal in a jar and but
a little oil in a crusq; she was gathering fuel
that she might cook the remnant of oil and meal
and eat it with her son and then die. .
Elijah asked her to prepare his food first,
and assured her that the meal and oil would not
give out until succor came. Worshipper of Baal
though she was, she obeyed the command of
God's prophet and it was even as he said.
Here we have another miracle. Materialism
cannot explain how Elijah could know that the
meal and oil could continue to feed three peo
ple without being exhausted, any more than it
can explain how a bush could be burning with
out being consumed, or iow a voice could come
out of the bush and summon Moses to one of
the greatest tasks in history.
While the drought was yet over the land, the
widow's son was stricken with death. In her
anguish she was ready to attribute his death to
the presence of Elijah, but When the prophet
called back the vital spark and restored the son
to the mother she recognised ,in him a man of
God. " . ; ' ,
We might see in;thie service rendered by
Elijah an illustration of "bread cast upon the
waters," or of the "entertaining of angels un
awares." But this unexpected return for kind
ness done is so frequent that it does not need
the' experience of Elijah to impress, it. No one
who has reached mature years is without cor-
That is one of the practical things about the
Christian spirit. It is not calculating, and yet
its arithmetic is' more accurate than the cal
culation of the celfish. Those who never do any
good until tttey stop to .calculate whether it will
return to them, spend time figuring that they
ought to spend acting. Those who do good as
opportunity offers are sowing seed all the time
and they need not doubt the harvest.
But the great lesson that we are to draw from
these incidents in the life of Elijah is that God
uses humin beings as his messengers. He se
lects them, qualifies them for the work and
sends them forth to proclaim His truth. He
supplies His agents with power from the Al
mighty's exhaustless storehouse and establishes
their authority by such proofs as He deems
proper. This He has done throughout the ages.
He gives strength for the -tasks that are dele
gated to them and guards them from dangers
until their work is 'done.
"HERE AM I; 'SEND ME"
This is the Bible story as embodied in this
lesson of Elijah. Is it true or false? Those
,who believe it is true find it is easy to under
stand the Bible, and its lessons will be suf
ficient for them in every time of need and under
all circumstances. Those who believe the story
is false will read the Bible in vain; its precepts
will have no binding force with them.
Believing the Bible account to be true, I pre
sent it as it is written. It makes a personal
nnneal to each of us; we do not know in advance
to what work God may call us but every day,
everywhere, there is work to be done. The
Heavenly Father has business for us all, labor
Sited to our strength and faith. From among
those whose Hearts are wholly His and who
eSiPprrtv say as Elijah could say, "Here am I,
lend me.'' He will select the ones best fitted to
carry out His will.
