The kingdom of Israel reached a lii ttli stHte of pnmperity In the time of .lerohouui 11, and with It caiue a con dition of luxury, corruption and WirkedneNA. The Judgment woe of this lesson Is directed uKtilnxt the sins of the upper rliiHse In Haumrla. The same sins are practiced In America, in the nation ii nd In the church. With the lncreane of wealth In America hus come luxury, corruption and gross wlckednetis which itiiKK'rs the ImiiKinntioD. It behoovo" all to give a llMtcnlnff ear, for Uod w eventually enter Into Judgment. 1M U'HMon Is a temperance leswin. Tempe anee upplles to other things than 1 diligence In Intoxicating liquor. Ui nge Is IntoxU-Hted with pletixure, pur suit of gain and selfish ambition. I. Reekie Security (vv. 1-3). They were blind to the perils that sur rounded them. They were living In a fool's pnradlxe, closing their eyes to the approaching storm of Judgment as predicted by Amos. They trusted In the mountains of Samaria for their protection. They regarded their city us linpregnulile. They no doubt re garded the utterance of Amos as Iru nriictlculile the dreams of a fanatic. The tragic thing about this blindness on the part of the chief ones of the nation was they were so puffed up with pride thut they failed to read the signs of the times In the light of hlHtory (v. 2.) The cities of Calneh and lluniHth, though great and mighty, had fallen. To disregard the lessons of history, to dismiss the thought of impending Judgment, is to bring near the "seat of violence" (v. 3). Let chaotic Europe and Russia be he red lights of warning to America, and let all Injustice and class selfishness be laid aside. II. Luxury (vv. 4 6). The luxury of these upper classes In Samaria expressed itself in: 1. Extrav agant furniture (v. 4). Tbey bad beds of Ivory perhaps wood inlaid with Ivory. Costly ss their furniture was tn that day. It wss commonplace as otn pared to some of the expensive fur, lure and fittings In our great cities. 2. Laziness (v. 4). They stretcht themselves upon their couches Uv lives of Indolence. Such Is the wi of many still. 3. Feasted on delicacies (v. 4). Tl Implication here Is that they bad their dainties out of season. This Is what tuany of the rich pride themselves In. 4. Adorn their feasts with music (v. 5). They sang Idle songs even in vented musical Instruments for this purpose. They prostituted the noble art of music to their sensual feasts. 6. They drank wine (v. 6). They were not content with ordinary drink ing vessels. They drank from bowls. Indicating excessive drinking. They were so mastered by the Intoxicating cup that tneir leasts wntcn were) adorned with the refinements of music ended in drunkenness. III. Failure te Grieve fer Jeeeph (v. 6). Joseph here stands for Ephralm and Manasseh, his two sons. Eph ralm became the principal tribe of the northern kingdom, so Joseph la uaed aa a synonym for the nation. The upper classes were Indulging In these effeminate luxuries, entirely indifferent to the groanlngs of the masse. And whenever such a condition exist In a nation there Is need . of Amos to thunder God's Judgment upon those who are guilty of It. IV. The Inevitable Issue (w. 7,8). 1. They shall go Into captivity (v. 7). The northern nation was first In sin, therefore first to go into captivity What a striking contrast this plctun Instead of lying on Ivory coucht feasting upon dainties, they are wit the suffering exiles. 2. The certainty of the Issue (v. 8. It Is Inevitable because of iod'S na ture, lie I a Uod of Justice, lie has sworn that Judgment shall fall. He Is the Uod of horns the controller of the whole universe, therefore none can em-ape. liod hates the wickedness of the world, and lie will bring Into Judgment the men and women who revel In luxury with no concern for the poor and ncady. Though God waits long. He does not forget. The only escape for America Is repentance. Abide In Him. And now, little children, abide In lllm; that when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed at Hi coming. I John 2:24 Great Mischlsfs.
