6-1S-Memory Verses, 16-i-Golden
Text, I Pet. Ili, 12-Commentry Pre
pared by Rev. D. .1. Stearns
[Copyright, 1904, by Amerioan Press Association.]
The first verse of our lesson and the
opening verses of the chapter state the
fact that Shalmaneser. king of Assyria,
carried the ten tribes of Israel into cap
tivity. He first subdued them and
made them- tributary to him, but when
he found that Hoshea, their king, was
secretly treating with the king of
Egypt and failing to pay tribute to
Assvria. then he made him a prisoner
and carried Israel away. Verses 7 to 12
give the reason why God permitted
this. The ten tribes had persistently
sinned against Him, doing just like the
heathen whom He had cast out before
them, walking in their. statutes and
serving their idols, whereof the Lord
had said unto them, "Ye shall not do
this thing" (verse 12). In chapter
rili, 10-12, the summary is that in the
sixth year of Hezekiah, king of Judah,
which was the ninth year of Hoshea,
king of Israel, Samaria was taken,
after a three years' siege. and Israel
was carried away into Assyria, because
they obeyed not the voice of the Lord
their God, but transgressed His cove
nant and all that Moses, the-servant of
the Lord, commanded, and would not
hear them nor do them.
Hosea, the-prophet, had- warned them
that because of their rebellion against
God Samaria would be desolate and
her people fall by the-sword (Hos. xiii,
16). In the very beginning of their
history He had warned them by His
servant'Moses that if they woutld walk
contrary to Him and persist in it He
would bring their land into desolation
and scatter them among the heathen
(Lev. xxvi, 32, 33; Dent. xxviii, 36, 64;
xxi, 27, 28). Becanse He is slow to
anger and plenteous in mercy He bore
long with theim. From Jeroboam, son
of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, to
Hoshea's ninth year was about 260
years, anid during all that time there
was not one ruler who taught them to
do right-in the sight 'of the Lord. All
walked-in the steps of.Jeroboam, Omri
and Ahab being two of the worst Be
cause judgment was not promptly
meted out to them they probably
thought that it would never come
that God did not see or did not care.
It was and is ever true that "because
sentence against an evil work is not
executed speedily therefore the heart
of the sons-of men is fully set in them
to do evil" (Eccl. viii, 11). The scoffers
of the last days are in our midst. They
walk after their own lusts and say,
"Where is the promise of His coming?
for since the fathers fell asleep all
things cotinue as they were -from the
beginning of the creation" (II Pet
iii, 3, 4).
There were scoffers in the days of
Noah (IOb xxii, 15-18), in the days of
Lot (Gen. xix, 14) and in the days of
Enoch (Sude 14-16), but the deluge
came and the Are from heaven, and all
the ungodly perished. And so it will
be again, fcar the mouth of the Lord
ath spoken it, "The Lord Jesus shall
be revealed from heaven with His
mighty angels, in. faming fire takng
vengeance on them that know notGod
and that. obey not the gospel of our
Lord Jeims Christ; who shall be pun
Ished with everlasting destructionl from
the presence of the Lord and from the
glory, of His power when He shall
cometo ibe glorified in-His saints and
to be admired In all them that believe
In that day" (fI Thess. 1, 7-10).
These-and sni.r sayings seem hard,
and mnany w1 not receive them, but
they are from God, who is love and
who is not wiming that any should per
ah, and He has 1ri love warned people
of tii result of despising His love. He
lovesaApeople, but He cannot love sin.
Concerrdng Israel He said, "I have giv
en the dearly beloved of My soul into
the; hand of her enemies"' (Jer. xii, 7);
"O -israel, thou hast destroyed thyself,
but In Me is -thine hellN" "O Israel, re
turn unto the Lord thy God" (Hos. xiii,
9;,17, 1). By all the prophets He tes
tiied against I[srael and against Judah,
saying, "Turn ye from y~our evil ways1
and keep My commnements and My
statutes," but they wouldtnot hear Him.
They did not believe In the Lord their
Gd. Therefore the Lord was very
ang;' with Israel and removed them
out-of His sight There was none left
but the tribe of Judah only .(verses
For a little while-longer*He bore-vith
Judah, but they also mocked the mes
sen gers of God and despised His words
an1 misused His prophets until the
wr ath of the Lord arose against His
peple, till there was no remedy- (II
Chon. xxxvi, 16). In due time, long
afer their return from captivity, God
seat to them His Son, butrHim'they
also despised and rejected and cruci
fled, and among His last words to them
are these: "How often would I have
gateed you and ye would not Be
ho2, y'bur house Is left unto you deso
late, for I say unto you, Ye shall niot
see me henceforth till ye shall say,
Blessed is He that cometh in the name
of the Lord" (Matt. xxI111, 37-39).
In this age, the age of Israel's rejec
tion, we are -now living, and the risen
Chrt at-God's right hand Is gathering
out from all the nations by His spirit
and His word, His body, the church
which shall reign with Him when He
shall return for the restoration of all
things which God hath spoken by the
mouth of' all His holy prophets since
the world egan (Acts 1if, 20, 21)- Like
the true prophets of God, -we are to
be His faithful witnesses wheher men
will hear or forbear, and rejoice that
we are unto God a sweet savor of
Christ itr them that are saved and in
them that perish (II C3or. II, 15), and
that in spite of- all obstacles:ZHis pur
pose-shall be accomplished.
