LESSON FOR NOVEMBER 10.
WORLD'S TEMPERANCE SUNDAY.
LESSON TEXT-Ilor.ca 7.
GOLDEN TEXT-"Woe unto them that
rise us early In the morning, that they
may follow strong drink: that tarry late
into the night, till wine Inflame them."
We turn aside today from studying
the life of Christ to consider one of
the things that caused the downfall
of Ephralm, that Is the northern king
dom. and also of Israel, I. .. those
who composed the southern kingdom.
Tho chief counterfeit of the Holy
Spirit employed by Satan is the In ,
splratlon and the Intoxication pro
duced In the use of liquors, and we (
do well to pause and consider the
works of him whom Jesus came to
destroy. (Heb. 2:14).
The lesson naturally divides Itself
Into two divisions, w. 17 and vv.
8-16. This ntlre section really be
gins In chapter six verse four and
contains the response of Jehovah to
the cry of the remnant of Israel and
of Ephralm In tho last days. In the
first half we see the Iniquity ol
Ephralm and Israel "discovered," i. e.,
revealed, and In the second section
there Is discovered or revealed to us
God's wrath against them for their
I. God declares that It was his de
sire to heal them both, (r. 1). It Is
not God's will that any should perish.
But while Jehovah would have
healed them they would not be healed,
(cf. Matt. 23:37 And Luke 13:34), and
hence it Is that his love serves to re
veal their wickedness. Dr. Torrey
points out eight charges brought
against the common people "Ephralm"
and the court and city "Samaria," for
this evil attacks both alike.
Never Hidden From God.
(1) "Falsehood" (v. 1). Nothing U
mora common among tho evils of in
temperance than falsehood; as we
have suggested It Is the Devil's false
imitation of truo Inspiration. (2) "A
thief comes In." Intempcranco steals
pot only a man's money but his repu
tation, love for his family, In fact any
and everything a sober man will hold
dear. (3) "They consider not In theii
hearts." Like Rip Van Winkle, meu
say "this last doesn't count," forget
ting that it does count and that God
remember all of their wickedness. A
violation of his law will receive pun-1
Ishment In due season. America li
paying the price of a manifold In
crease in ""taxation, in murder, in inl-'
beclllty, in divorce and suicide, the
overwhelming portion of which can be
traced to Intemperance. God Is re
membering all our wickedness and
verily a troop of robbers are strip-.
ping us (v. 1). .
We ofttimes hide our evil decdi
"H from man but never from God,, and a .
man's sins will find him .out (Psalm
9:16). Theso people made the king
glad (v. 3,) I. e., the king delighted in
this wickedness. Let us not forget
that righteousness exalteth a nation
and sin Is a reproach to any people.
(4) "They are all adulterers," (v. 4).
Of course in this connection we know
there was a remnant of true follow
ers, but the prevailing vlleness was
such as to call forth this terrific In
dictment. We need to remember that
the connection between the liquor
traffic and white slavery la so close as
to defy separation.
"The Great Destroyer."
A liquor drinker Is .almost Invaria
bly a scorner. He scorns the power
of liquor over himself. Its effect upon
the nation. "Sum up the economlo
loss of efficiency the cost of crime,
pauperism, and Insanity, and we have
an economlo burden of mora than half
of the wealth produced by this na
tion." (See Congressman H. R. Hob
ion', "The Great Destroyer"). ' (6)
"They have made ready their heart
like an oven while they lie in wait,"
(w. 6, 7, referring undoubtedly to the
beat of anger and passion ai well aa
of lust. (7) "They have devoured
their Judges" (v. 7). One has but to
review the pages of history to appre
ciate the overthrow of priest, peasant
and potentate alike. (8) "There is
none that calleth upon me" (v. 7).
The turning aside from God was noted
at the outset, here again we see that
the neglect and forgetfulness of God
la the true source of all of man's sin
II. God Intended Israel, and Intends
us, to be separate people. The prophet
sets before us the result of this re
fusal upon Ephralm. A cake not turn
ed is a cake half baked, one half burn
ed. This metaphor lias many appllca
tlons. Our social life, our political life,
our spiritual lire Is too often one that
is half turned, one-half burned to a
crisp and the other half raw.
Lay emphasis upon the Golden Text
and the general facts of the temper
ance question. Alcohol Is Injurious to
all kinds of life; there Is little, if any,
necessity for its use in medicine. Us
ually It li a positive hindrance. The
story of "Old Born Drunk" In Beg
be'a "Twice Bora Men," can be told
with profit, a man who returned to
Jehovah and found in the power of
the blood of his son healing for his
sickness. Lay strong emphasis upon
pledge signing, for ' prevention Is
stronger than cure. Also, unlike the
old Romans, oar belly should not bo
