[Copyright., 1W05. by American rress Association.]
The money gathered to repair the
house of the Lord recalls the method
adopted to obtain money in the days of
King Jehoash and the priest Jehoiada
a chest beside the altar, with a hole in
the lid of it, and it worked splendidly
and brought in imch ioncy. I doubt
not but that a proper appreciation of
the aitar (the cross of Christ) today
would bring an abundance for the
Lord's house. I have seen a box with
a bole in the lid to receive thank offer
ings from grateful hearts to help give
the gospel to the heathen and thus aid
in conpleting the house-the church
accomplish great things. But I have
seen a similar box placed to receive of
ferings for other purposes accomplish
next to nothing. Each of these boxes
was in a church, but the altar and the
object made all the difference. When
the love of Christ constrains there Is no
When any one does the best he
knows for God, as Josiah was evident
ly doing, God will find a way to reveal
imself more fully to such a one, and
in this case I-Ic caused the priest 111
kiah to find the book of the law, which
some think was the original book of
which we read in Deut. xxxi, 24-2.
The priest gave the book to the scribe,
who read it and then took it to the
king and read it to him, with the result
that the king when he heard it rent his
elothes in token of his acceptance of
and submission to the message and his
grief that the law had been so set at
The king at once sends for further
light to one who is qualified to ex
plain the law more fully, and Huldab,
the prophetess. who dwelt in Jerusa
lem, is consulted (verse 22). Jeremiah
had at this time been a prophet about
live years (compare verse S and Jer.
1, 1, '2. and wh; he was not consulted
I do not know unless it happened that
he was at his home in Anathoth and
Huldah was right there in Jerusalem
and the matter required immediate
light. There were doubtless many
men of influence and importance in Je
rusalem, but sone one has said that a
woman knowing God's will is far su
perior to a man who doesn't.
Josiah had heard the curses of Deut.
xxviii. 15-20: xxx. 17. 18, etc., and knew
that the wrath of Go1d was hanging
over them because of the sias of the
nation and now earnestly desired de
liverance for himself and his people if
such could be obtained. The word of
God Is very plain concerning every un
believer that the wrath of God is upon
him (John iii, 18, 36; Gal. iii, 10; Jas.
li, 10), but how few seem to believe It
or tremble at the werd of God as King
Josiah did. Yet only with such as
tremble at His word does God dwell
(Isa. lvii, 15; lxv:, 2, 5). A good prac
tical word for many today is found In
Job xxxvi, 18, "Because there is wrath
beware lest 11e take thee away with
His stroke; then a great ramson can
not deliver thee."
The proplhete-;s has no answer from
herself. as~ many seem now to have, but
she has a "Thus saith the Lord Godof
Israe" (verses 23, 24), the New Testa
ment equivalent of which is, "Verily I
say unto you." Happy indeed are all
who receive such mess-ages meekly and
proceed promptly to give heed to them.
God said to MIoses concerning Christ,
'I will put my words in His mouth,
and He shall speak unto them all that
I shall command Him" (Dent. xviii,
1S). He said the same thing to Jere
miah concerning Himself in 3er. i, 7-0,
and believers now can trust Him to
fulfill to them His word to Moses,
Now therefore go, and I will be with
thy mouth and teach thee what thou
shalt say" (Ex. iv, 12), provIded that
they have Is message in them.
The Lords message as gIven in the
rest of the lesson had no comfort for
the persistently rebellious; it never
has. But there was much comfort for
Josiah and for all who would turn to
the Lord with him, and therefore Josi
ah sought to turn the people to God
that they mIght -escape the Impending
judgments, and many did turn to the
Lord with him, as we recad in verses
s1. 32. Gods aim is always to bring
mna to repentance that they may not
perish (II Pet. iii, 0), and this is seen
in the last awful judgments of the
great tribulation, where we read again
and again that they repented not (Rev.
x, 20. 21: xvi, 9, 31).
Josiah in that same year kept the
greatest passover that had been kept
since the days of Samuel (xxxv, 18, 19,
but the revival w~as only temporary.
The hearts of the people were away
from God, and the time came when
even such men as Moses and Samuel
or Noah, Daniel and Job could not de
liv-er the nation by their righteousness
or their intercession (Jer. xv, 1: Ezek.
xv, 14). Consider in Job xxxlii, 14-30,
how God labors to deliver man from
the pit, and let us be encouraged to per
severe by John vi, 37. Then when we
have lovingly and patiently done all,
if men will not repent, we have deliv
ered our own souls (Ezek. xxxiii, 9).
The manner of Josiah's death (xxxv,
22, 24) has ia it something very sug
gestive and searching. It was the will
of God that he should die peacefully
when his time came, but by his willful
naess he fell In battle. See verse 28 and
bapter xxxv, 22-24. By disobedience
and self will we bring many things
upon ourse-lves which by obedience and
denial of self we might have escaped.
It is probable that Paul might have
saved himself much suffering at Jeru
salem f he had been as obedient to the
eav-enly vision at the close as at the
beginning of his ministry.
