THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE -JOUENAL--SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 15, 1907. IN THE RELIGIOUS WORLD. What the Church Folks Are Religious News The Crossing: and the Grosser. The International Sunday School Les son for June 18 Is. "Israel' Escape from Egypt," Ex. 14: 13-27. The Golden Text is, "Thus the Lord Saved Israel that Day Out of the Hands of the Egyptians." Ex. 14-30. BT WILLIAM T. ELLIS. The meaning of the word Hebrews is "the crossera;" and this significance Is more deeply embodied In the history than in the name. From its beginnings in Abraham down to the present, Israel has been finding a way to cross streams and oceans of decision and peril. Floods of disaster which have engulfed great er and prouder nations have left it un touched. The story of the crossing of the Red Sea is symbolical of this cho sen people's deliverance from countless perils and their preservation amid great dangers. For the larger Israel which calls Jehovah Father, there is here a dramatic re-enforcement of the ever fresh and practical teaching that some how God makes a way for the feet of his own; and that by his dealings with his children he teaches the unbelieving his might and majesty. The story is the story of a miracle. AU the ingenious theories of tides and shallows and sandbars seem foolish to one who has looked upon the site of this great deliverance. At the minute of this writing I am sailing up the Red Sea, with the mountainous Sinai Penin sula in sight on one side and the sandy shores of Egypt on the other. A strong west wind, such as drove the waters upon the Egyptians is blowing and the sea is running high and heavy, dash ing up on the deck of the great ocean liner. For five days we have been ploughing swiftly through the Red Sea, which suggests how great is this body of water which some commentators would treat as if it were a shallow mill pond. Only the supernatural interposi tion of the Ruler of wind and wave could effect such a wonder as the cross ing of the Red Sea by the Israelites; it was a miracle of providence. "Spoiling the Egyptians.' Th pn slaved Israelites went not forth from Egypt empty-handed on the right of the Passover. "When the suf fering and panic-stricken Egyptians did at length let them go they were of a sudden more eager to get rid of their slaves than they had been to retain them. So when the Israelites came asking for gifts which is not a Btrange procedure in the eyes of one at all acquainted with the east they were met with an attitude of "Take it and go; anything to get rid of you." The old version says that the Israelites "bor rowed" of the Egyptians; but this is a palpable mistranslation; "asked" is the word in the original. The state of mind of the Egyptians must have been akin to that of the terror-stricken Chinese of Pekin. after the relief of the siege; when in terror, they not only gave for eigners whatever they asked, but even heaped gifts upon them unasking. So it came to pass that the exiles went not out empty; and probably, also, from the dead bodies of the engulfed Egyp tians washed up on the Sinai shore, they obtained accoutrements of war. The route chosen by Moses was not directly across the isthmus of Sues, for that would have led into the coun try of the Philistines, and the newly emancipated slaves needed much dis ciplining before they were ready to enter upon hostilities with this war like people. So the line of march lay down the shores of Egypt toward the Red sea; apparently into a "cul de sac." but really into a great deliver ance that would forever eliminate Pharaoh and his hosts as a factor to be feared. A Strange Scene. Even a disciplined army is cumber some in its movements; those who have seen a great unorganized mob of people know how difficult it is to han dle. So the leadership of this raw company of about two million souls, six thousand of them fighting men. was no small task for Moses. The Israelites were each carrying such of his meagre possessions as he could bear away, and the whole were en cumbered with flocks and herds and the inevitable impedimenta of an army of families. Yet it was an army, notwithstanding all. It had a large measure of nomo- geneity. a common purpose and a childlike dependence upon the man who represented its divine leadership The national sentiment which pervad ed the people was indicated by the fact that the mummy of Joseph was car ried among the most precious treas ures. And before the host went the strangest banner that ever an army followed; a pillar or cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night, signalizing Jehovah a protection, providence ana leadership. Harder than the slaves' task of making bricks without straw was that which fell to Moses in leading on a victorious way a people whose spirits had been broken by subjection to tyrannous masters. Sorely as the Egyptians had smitten the Israelites in their bodies, more sorely had they smitten tnem in the spirit. They be queathed to Moses a company of crav en hearts. So at the first sight of pur suit Pharaoh having realized the value to him of his slaves after he had let them go the children of Israel began to whimper and complain. In Ignoble fashion. So Moses spoke unto them the word that God is ever de claring into the ears of his people, the word that weak and timorous hearts today most need to hear, "Fear ye not . .Jehovah will fight for you." God may discipline nis own, but he never de serts them. Tho Enemy Appears. It Is easy to be brave, as all brag gart art, when no enemy is in sight. But the truly courageous are they who stand fast in the presence of dan ger. Consider what drew nigh to these fugitives, not yet emancipated rrom tne slave sprrlt, and with the crack of the overseer's whip still in their ears. I quote Edersheim: It mst have been as the rays of the setting sun were glinting upon the war chariots, that the Israelites first de scribed, the approach of Pharooh's army. ' It followed - In their - track, and came approaching them from the north. There was. no escape in that direction. - Eastward - was the sea; to the west and south rose mountains. Flight was impossible; defence seem ed madness. Once more the faith of Israel signally failed, and they broke into murmuring against Moses. But the Lord was faithful. What now took place was to be not only the final act of sovereign deliverance by God's arm alone, nor yet merely to serve ever afterwards as a memorial by which Israel's faith might be upheld, but also to teach, by the judgment upon Egypt, that Jehovah was a righteous and a holy Judge." John Knox before Mary, Queen of Scots, and Luther at the Diet of tVorma, are suggested by the answer, Thinking About and Doing From Everywhere. which Moses made when the people began to show fear. It was the tre mendous certainty of a man of un shaken faith. There is something terrible about the assurance and bold ness of the man who knows that he speaks for God. Hear the swish of the sword of battle in these words to the faint-hearted: "Fear ye not. stand still, and see the salvation of Jehovah, which he will work for you today; for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever. Jehovah will fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace." Doesn't it make one shudder at the thought of undertaking combat with the will of the lord of hosts? Tho Interposed Cloud. So little do many people under stand life that they do not even per ceive the fundamental principle that the divine programme for humanity is progress. "Speak unto the child ren of Israel, that they go forward, cried Jehovah to Moses. That is God's message to every Individual life and to the race as a whole. To emphasize It he often mercifully shuts all paths except the one that means advance. True, real progress is not always along the line of least resis tance, there are Red Seas to be croessed en every experience. ' But when God points the way he also pre pares It. As a protection pending the passage the cloud which had led the vanguard became the rear guard; it was. inter posed between the Israelites and their pursuers. Little . wonder that the sweet singers of Israel loved to con template Jehovah as a shield. On his own side of that myterious veil the Lord was preparing great things for his own.and terible things for his enemies. It was soon to be demon strated, as Moses sang, "Jehovah is a man of war. The Great Miracle. . And wonderful weapons he wields. Since he holdeth the winds in his fist, it was easy for God by a great east wind, to pile up the waters or the tur bulent sea, so where the fishes had swum the Israelites walked dry shod This passage of the Red Sea was a miracle; why try to minimize it,, or explain it away. Only the direct in terposition of the Lord of creation could have wrought this mighty won der, making a way of escape for the Israelites, hemmed in on all other sides. Half a dozen great ocean liners are now anchored in what Is common ly regarded as the site of the crossing; water like this does not naturally be come dry land for a night. God did it; it was but one of the countless un guessed tactics which the God of war has at his command. The wall of water on either side the simple statement of inspiration is majestic made an Impression upon the marching Israelites; even as it has made an impression on all who have heard or read the story since. It was a rampart such as only God couTd build; one of the highways of help for his own which the word of Jehovah obliges him to build whenever there is occasion. But what Is help for friend may he nurt ror roe. When day broke the Egyptian army, with its six hundred picked chariots, essayed to follow by the same path. But what had been easy going for the Israelites proved a snare for their pursuers, so that the latter were soon crying, "Let us flee from the face of Tsrael, for Jehovah flghteth for them." The Song of Victory. Therein the Egyptians, ere they were engulfed in the grip of the God whom they defied, showed an under standing of the significance of the whole matter. God was caring for his own people and vindicating his own name. That is the point of the whole story, as appeared in the song of vic tory which Moses sang; and in the lat er song of the Psalmist (10:7-12.) "Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; They remembered not the multitude of thy loving kindnesses. But were rebellious at the sea, even the Red Sea. Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake. That he might make his mighty power to be known. He rebuked the Red Sea also, and It was dried up; So he led them through the depths aa through a wilderness. And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them. And redeemed them front the hand of the enemy. And the waters covered their adver saries: There was not one of them left. Then believed they his words; They sang his praise." NEWS AND NOTES. The number of churches erected In the United States during the past year is estimated to be 16,000. . The gifts of Christian people in the United States toward various philan thropies totaled last year more than J287,OO0,00O. The formation of a brotherhood In the Christian church was recently urged In the national congress of that body. No organization for the men In general ex ists in this church, although it numbers more than 1.300,000 members. Two changes In the policy of the Methodist Episcopal churches in this country are being considered for adop tion by the British Wesleyan Methodists, namely, the prolongation of the term of ministerial service and the abolishment of the class-meeting as a requisite for good standing. The two churches in New York which spend the largest amount on their own worship also head the list in contribu tions for outside work. It is estimated that for every dollar which they spend for their own work these churches give more than two dollars for philanthropic and missionary purposes. At a recent meeting of the Episcopal Diocesan convention the novel plan was proposed that every year eight per cent of the minister's salary should be put aside for a life insurance to benefit the ministers, the understanding being that he should himself contribute a like sura each year. Massachusetts Is the first state to originate a plan for life Insur ance for the clergy. The World's Student Conference held recently in Tokio, enrolled among its leaders Mr. John R. Mott, Sid Alexan der Simpson, Bishop NIcolai, of the Greek church, and professors from Ox ford, Cambridge, and Leyden. Tele grams were read from President Roose- velt, King Edward, King Haakon and the Crown Prince of Sweden. Some of the hymns were sung in six differ- ent languages at the same time, and it was said that prayers weii beard In more languages than on tlte day of Pentecost. l - Prophet Frank W. Sanford, Vhe foun der of the Holy Ghost and U4 society, which established a community at Shi loh. Me., a short time ago, has myster iously disappeared. Last August, the "prophet" chartered a vessel aid with seventy of his followers sailed Jor the Holy Land. In January Sanfora disap peared, and the company returned with out him a few weeks ago. Much praise Is being accorded to the pope from all parts of Europe for his action in establishing a seismogriphic observatory near the sanctuary situated in the valley of Pompeii. According to scientists, no better location could have been selected for informing the people of threatened eruptions of Vesuvius. The observatory will be in charge of the Dominican order, to which has recently been intrusted the care of thesanctuaiy. SEVEN SENTENCE SERMONS. A man must stand erect not be kept erect by others. Marcus Aurelius. It God writes "opportunity" on one side of open doors, he writes "responsi bility" on the other side. Anon. . And he who waits to have ills task marked out Shall die and leave his errand unful filled. Lowell. Perfection of character can be achiev ed only through struggle, through dis cipline; it is for him that overcometli that the crown of life is reserved. John Fiske. - . Just to make life constantly helpful In little ways to those who are touched by It, to keep one's spirit always sweet and avoid all manner of petty anger that is an ideal as noble as it Is diffi cult. Edward Howard Griggs. -.- It Is not the deed we do Though the deed be never so fair, But the love the dear Lord looketh for Hidden with lowly care In the heart of the deed so fair. , Christiana Rossettl. Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it witn us or we find It not. Emerson. RELIGIOUS THOUGHT. Gems Gleaned From the Teachings of All Denominations. We obtain perfect rest when we are in harmony with eternal righteousness Rev. B. T. Newton, Congregational ism Pittsburg. AN IMPORTANT NEED. The day's need Is that a man should tnink for himself, decide for himself. and, greater than all, be himself. Rev. 1. J Rail, Methodist, Baltimore. A PRAYER THAT COUNTS. There is a prayer that cannot be put into words, for which there is no dic tionary. It is locked up in the silver ceu or a tear drop, and the Lord hears that prayer. Gypsy Smith, English .evangelist. TO BETTER CONDITIONS.-. The spirit and influence of the power of Jesus Christ must be more manifest in the daily life of the people if we nope ror a better condition either in the cnurch or state. Rev. J. S. Caldwell, Methodist, Philadelphia. VALUE OF CHILD LIFE. The only thing that nrevents thli earxn rrom Decoming a hell is the Dr petual inflow of child life. We can never doubt that God is love so long as mere are mue children, Rev. Dr. Frank Crane, Congregationalism Wor cester, Mass. LIFE'S JOURNEY. Human Hf3 is a journey. The reeion tnrougn which we move is unknow and largely unknowable a land of mystery. Any questions as to the facts" of environments of existence lead us at 'once Into paths that "run into shrouded chambers," a realm of dark ness. Rev. C. H. Buck, Methodist, New York. FALSE AND TRUE SOULS. In all the universe there is no place where a false soul can be saved or happy and there is no place where a true soul can be lost or miserable. Creeds and professions are only paper currency, promises to pay, not good far away from home. Righteous character is the pure gold that will nass in nil me divine dominions. Rev. Rush R, Shippen, Unitarian, Atlanta, Ga. THE SOULS WEIGHT. The soul is a spirit breathed Into man at the time of his creation. It has no weight that scales can discover. It is lighter than the ether. Jesus Christ put the soul in one side of the scale and the whole world In the other and asked, "What shall It profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" The soul weighs down all the gold and pleasures of the world. Rev. W. A. Bartlett. Congregatlonal- ist, Chicago. SOURCES OF HAPPINESS COMMON The sources of happiness are not in what the few have and the many crave, but in what all have in com mon. Happiness comes not from idle ness, as so many think; not from the opportunity to sin and steal sin's pleas ures, but In Industry and work and manly effort, in the satisfaction of a Christian character and conduct ana In the joys of fulfilling the -require ments of proper relationships, not from the illicit. This is the Bible's teaching, and this is the experience of the ages. Rev. Dr. Walter Kusseu Breed, Episcopalian, Cleveland, u. LESSON FOR DAILY LIFE. Peter Pan is a sermon aside from the delightful delineation of a child world of fancy. Peter is the quest or life itself. He is the great ideal and possibility for which we are all striv ing, and somehow the possibility seems more real arter seeing .f eter ana hearing him. Yes, we are even ready to believe in fairies If Tinker Bell re aulres it if It Is the best thing for Tinker. Underneath all this is a prac tical lesson for daily living. If Peter Pan cheers us with the eternal youth and joy, yet us live as if life were ac tually that. The result will be more living, less existing.- Rev. Fred Alban Weil, Unitarian. Chicago. CHRISTLIKE FRIENDSHIP. This friendship of Christ is not like the affection between brothersr the love between husband and wife. It comes nearer being like a mother's love for her child. We might say that moth er love is almost a perfect love, but even In that there may be found a trace of self approbation, which is not to be found In that perfect , friendship the perfect love that Christ has for us and we may have for him. It Js the love that casteth out ail fear,, the love that makes us want Christ to be honored at a disadvantage to ourselves If need be, for did he not live on this earth three and thirty years at a disadvantage to himself that we might -be honored in glory forevermore? Rev. Dr. 8. Ed ward Young, Presbyterian, Pittsburg. EFFECTIVE PREACHING. Power is capability to produce an effect, but what effect? Pulpit power is capability to produce that effect for which above all other things the pulpit stands. There is an educational power of the pulpit, and a reformatory power, and a political power, and a literary power, and a sacerdotal power, but all Top The Topeka Foundry and Machine Co.
