LESSON FOR SEPTEMBER 20
JUDGMENT OF THE NATIONS.
LESSON TEXT-Matt. 23:31-46.
GOLDEN TEXT Inasmuch as ye did It
not unto one of the lchst, ye did It not
unto Me. Matt. 25:45.
I. Tho Oongregatlon, vv. 31-33. This
14 one of the difficult and much-con-uroverted
passages of our Lord's Oli
vet prophecy. The title "Son of Man"
Is one which refers to our Lord's
earthly relations and administration,
and is one not otherwise used in this
prophecy. Jesus is spraklng to his
disciples. He looks beyond the dark
passion so rapidly approaching to the
light of the ultimate fulfilling of his
purpose for this world. Our Lord here
makes no reference to the final judg
ment mentioned in the Apocalypse. In
that hour earth and heaven will flee
away. Here there is no such passing
away nor do the dead appear. The
Bon is enthroned. He administers
judgment. He is assisted by the ac
companying angels. The believer
I ft' Cor. 5:10; Horn. 14:10), but his des
tiny is decided tho moment he be
lieves, John 5:24. Christ first came In
humiliation, when he comes this time
f 'iwni De in -giory iv. jsij. tie may
M come at any moment, Matt. 24:42-44.
This scene Is more the description of
a judgment than of a trial. The test
ing is taking place today.
II. Those Commended, vv. 34-40.
The separating test is the attitude
of the nations toward the brethren of
the Lord. Here Jesus emphatically
speaks of his kingship, hence the hon
ored position, "on his right hand."
In his teaching Jesus had empha
sized the fact that those who do the
will of God are his next of kin. Here
they are, "Ye blessed of my father."
This word "blessed" means, literally,
"well spoken of." We are blessed of
God in the heavenlies in Christ, Eph.
1:3, but we are also to be blessed
with an inheritance in the kingdom.
See Gal. 5:19, 21; Eph. 5.5; I Cor. 6:9,
10 contrasted with II Tim. 2:2; 4:8;
James 2:5; Rev. 21:7. This blessing Is
a gift, Luke 12:32, which has been
prepared "from the foundation of the
world" (v. 34). Man's destiny de
pends upon the object and act of his
faith, but the test, the proof, the evi
dence of that faith is in his conduct
(Gal. 5;6; James 2:17, 18). Altruism
does not save the bouI, but a truly
saved soul will be compassionately
serviceable. It is ours to assuage the
thirsty, John 4:14, 6:55; ours to feed
the hungry, John 6:32, 35; ours to re
ceive the stranger, Eph. 2:13, 18, 19;
ours to clothe the naked, Isa. 64:6;
ours to visit the sick, Luke 1:68, 78;
and ours to visit the prisoner, Luke
4:18. Note carefully the unconscious
ness of good deeds. The Christian is
so identified with Jesus Christ as to
regard these deeds as not his own,
but "Christ within." The real test ia
not bo much love for God or Christ
whom we have not seen, but love for
the brethren whom we have seen (1
John 3:17). Our attitude toward our
brethren is the evidence that we have
received Christ. Our life of service,
though we may be "the least," will
be commended before the throne and
the assembled nations and angels. He
is Identified with "the least" This
sentence needs to be Interpreted in
the light of the entire scene and its
relationship, Those commended are
sent away Into an age-abiding life
The Other Side.
III. Those Condemned, vv. 41-46.
Turning now to the other side, what a
change we behold! "Como" is now
"dopart," not to age-abiding Joy, but to
age-abiding Are, which is age-abiding
punishment. We do not infer that
this parable refers to the place of
the departed dead, to the final judg
ment of sin but to the time of his
second advent and that the life that
is blessed and the place of punish
ment are on this earth during the age
of his millennial reign. Such at least
Is as far as we feel we have a right
to go in the interpretation of this par-
able. Those who do not listen to the
"come" of Jesus now, will hear his
"denart" hereafter. Notice there Is
no reference to the father following
the curse such as we find in connec
tion with the "blessed." Men are
cursed by themselves, John 5:40.
Those who seek to save themselves
are likewise cursed, Gal. 3:10. The
Kingdom Is prepared for the righteous
and punishment is not prepared for
man. It was prepared for the devil
(41) and his cohorts.
IV. The Lesson content. Admit
ting the uimculty of interpretation let
us look at the picture. Jesus on
Mount Olivet, sitting In the midst of
his disciples, knew full well what was
awaiting him on Calvary. Judged by
human standards he was defeated and
his defeat was to be made Irrevocable
by that ignomlnous death. So his
enemies confidently believed. Yet he
looks beyond the circumstance to the
coming centuries and through them to
the end of the age, and claims tho
victory. He speaks without hesitation
of "hi hour of triumph and "glory"
clean shaven, straight, with m scar
high up on his forehead, generally cov-'
ered up by his hair."
"That's battened down, my lad. Go
"Say that you saw him enter yonder
warehouse, and later dopart without
"Easy as dropping my mudhook."
"That's all." Norton gave the cap
tain the money. "Good-by and many
"Don't mention it."
Norton left tho slip and proceeded to
the office of the warehouse. He ap
proached the manager's desk.
"Hello, Qrannis, old top!"
The man looked up from his work
surlily. Then his face brightened.
"Norton? What's brought you Ijere?
O, yes; that balloon business. Sit
"What kind of a man is the captain
of that old hooker in the slip?"
"Shifty In gun running, but other
wise as square as a die. Looks funny
to see an old tub like that fixed up
with wireless; but that has saved his
neck a dozen times when he was run
ning it into a noose. Not going to In
terview me, are you?"
"No. I'm going to ask you to do me
a little favor."
"They always say that. But spin
her out. If it doesn't cost me my job,
"Well, there will be a person mak
ing Inquiries about the mysterious
aeronaut. All I want you to say Is,
that he left a packet with you, that
you've put it In that safe till he calls
to claim it."
Granuls nibbled the end of his pen.
"Suppose some one should come and
demand that I open the safe and de
liver?" "All you've got to do is to tell them
to show the receipt signed by you."
The warehouse manager laughed.
"Got a lot of sense In that ivory dome
of yours. All right. But If anything
happens you've got to come around
and back me up. What's it about?"
"That I dare not tell you. This
much, I'm laying a trap and I want
some one I don't know to fall into it."
"On your way, James. But if you
don't eend me some prize fight tickets
next week for this, I'll never do you
In reply Norton took from his pocket
two bits of pasteboard and laid them
on the desk. "I knew you'd be want
ing something like this."
"Ringside!" cried Grannls. "You re
porters are lucky devllB!"
"I'd go myself If there was any
earthly chance of a real scrap. You
make me laugh, Gran. You're always
going, always hoping the next one will
be a real one. But It's all bunk. The
pugs are the biggest fakers on top tho
sod. They've got us newspaper men
done to a frazzle."
"I guess you're right. Well, count
on me regarding that mysterious
bundle in the safe."
"At three o'clock this afternoon I
want you to call me up. If no one has
called, why the game Is up. But If
some one does come around and make
inquiries, don't fail to let me know."
"I'll be here till five. I'd better call
you up then."
Then Norton returned home and
Idled about till afternoon. He went
over to Rlverdale: Five times he
walked up and down the front of the
Hargreave place, finally plucked up
his courage and walked to the door.
After all, he was a lucky mortal. He
had a good excuse to visit this house
every day in the week. And there was
something tantalizing In the risk he
took. Besides, he wanted to prove to
himself whether It was a passing fancy
or something deeper. That's the way
with humans; we never see a sign
"Fresh Paint" that we don't have to
He chatted with Florence for a
while and found that, for all she might
be guileless to the world, she was a
good linguist, a fine musician, and
talked with remarkable keenness
about books and arts. But unless he
roused her, the Badness of her position
always lay written In her face. It was
not difficult for him to conjure up her
dreams in coming to the city and the
blow which, like a bolt of lightning
from a clear sky, had shattered them
"You must como every day and tell
me how you have progressed," she
"I'll obey that order gladly, when
ever I can possibly do it. My visits
will always be' short."
"That is not necessary."
"No," said Norton in his heart, "but
It Is wise."
Always he found Jones waiting for
him at the door, always in the shadow.
"Well?" the butler whispered.
"I have laid a neat trap. Whether
this balloon was the one that left the
top of this house I don't know. But If
there were two men in it, one of them
He3 at the bottom of the eea."
"And the man found?" The butler's
voice was tense.
"It was not Hargreave. I met Orts
but once, and as ho wore a beard then,
the captain's description did not tally
with your recollection."
"Thank God! But what is this trap?"
"I propose to find out by It who is
back of all this, who Hargreave'n real
Norton returned to his rooms, there
to await tho call from Grannls. Ho
was sorry, but It Jones would not take
hlra into his fullest confidence, ho
must hold himself to blame for any
blunder'he (Norton) made. Of course,
he could readily understand Jones'
anglo of vision. Ho knew nothing of
the general run of reporters; he had
heard of them by rumor and distrusted
them. He was not aware of the fact
that the average reporter carries more
secrets In hla head than a prime min
ister. It was, then, up to him to set
about to allay this distrust and rain
tho man's complete confidence.
Meanwhile that same morning a
pretty young woman boarded the
Orient and asked to be led to the. cap
tain. Hor eyes were red; she had
evidently been weeping. When tho
captain, susceptible like all sailors,
saw hor his promises to Norton took
"This Is Captain Hagan?" sho asked,
balling the handkerchief she held In
"Yes, miss. What can I do for you?"
He put his hands embarrassedly Into
his pockets and felt the crisp bills.
But for that magic touch ho would
have forgotten his lines. He squared
"I have every assurance that tho
man you picked up nt sea is my father.
I am Florence Hargreave. Tell me
Tho captain's very blundering de
celved her. "And then he hustled
down the gang-plank and headed for
that warehouse. He had a package
which he was as tender of as if It
had been dynamite."
"Thank you!" Impulsively.
"A man has to do his duty, miss. A
sailor's always glad to rescue a man
at sea," awkwardly.
When she finally went down the
gangplank the sigh the captain heaved
was almost as loud ae the exhaust
from the donkey engines which were
working out tho crates of lemons from
"Maybe Bhe is his daughter; but
two hundred Is two hundred, and I'm
a poor sailor man."
Then Grannls came In for his
troubles. What was a chap to do
when a pretty girl appealed to him?
"I am sorry, miss, but I can't give
you that package. I gave the man a
receipt and till It is presented to me
the package must remain In yonder
safe. You understand enough about
the business to realize that. I did
not solicit the Job. It was thrust upon
me. Id give a hundred dollars If the
blame thing was out of my safe. You
say It Is your fortune. That hasn't
been proved. It may be gunpowder,
dynamite. I'm sorry, but you will
have to find your father and bring the
The young woman left the ware
house, dabbing her eyes with the
"I wonder," mused Grannls, as he
watched her from the window, "I won
der what the deuce that chap Nor
ton Is up to. The girl might have
been tho man's daughter. . . . Good
Lord, what an ass I am! There
wasn't any man!" And so he reached
over for the telephone.
Immediately upon receipt of the
message the reporter set his machin
ery in motion. Some time before
dawn he would know who the arch
conspirator was. He questioned Gran
nls thoroughly, and Grannls' descrip
tion tallied amazingly with that of
Florence Hargreave. But a call over
the wire proved to him conclusively
that Florence had not been out of
the house that morning.
On the morrow the newspapers had
scare-heads about an attempt to rob
the Duffy warehouse. It appeared
that the police had been tipped be
forehand and were on the grounds In
time to gather In several notorious
gunmen, who, under pressure of the
third degree, vowed that they had
been hired and paid by a man in a
mask and had not the slightest Idea
what he wanted them to raid. Noth

Norton was in a fine temper. After
all his careful planning he had gained
nothing absolutely nothing. But
wait; he had gained something tho
bitter enmity of a cunning and des
perate man, who had been forced to

suffering greatly from kidney trouble
and rheumatism. I could scarcely get
up or down on account of the intense
pain across the small of my back. One
day the kidney secretions were profuse
and then again scanty Although I
doctored I got no relief I had often
read about Doan's Kidney Pills and
finally got asupplyatGarrett& Ayres'
Drug Store. They helped me so much
that I continued taking them for over
a year. Now 1 have no trouble."
On August 8, 1913, Mr. Blackmore
said : "It has been some years since I
was cured by Doan's Kidney Pills.
They are certainly a wonderful kidney
remedy and I never hesitate to recom
mend them to my friends. My former
endorsement holds good "
