A GOD READY TO PARDON Hosea 14?-June 4 "For thou art a God ready to pardon, graciou* and merciful, ?low to auger."?? eh. o.-n. CODAY'S study Is an exhortation by the Prophet Hosen to Is rael. at that time distinct from Judab; but it Is applies ble to our own nation as (veil as to every nation. Israel bad become de bauched through Idolatry. Intermar riage with the royalty of heathen na tions had introduced the idolatries of heat ben religions and the sensualities which constituted their attractive fea tures to the people. With the sensu allty came a lack of moral sense?a general numbness of conscience re specting impurities. The record indi cates that Hosea'8 own wife was an adulteress, a debauchee, who finally left her husband and ber false off spring. Later the Prophet took ber back under his own roof, bui not as his wife. He wns compassionate to ward her and her offspring. "Return Unto the Lord" No doubt tbe Prophet's own expert ences had much to do with awaken ing him to a realization of tbe deplorable state of his own peo ple. Wben the spirit of the Lord came upon him in prophecy, he could the bet ter from h I s own experiences pnter into sym p a t b y with tliem. Tbe Israelites were fatherless In the seuse that they bnd denied the Heavenly Fa; ber. the Creator, and had become children of the Adversary; even as Jesus said to some, "Ye are of your father the Devil, for his works ye do." In their repentance, In their return to God. tbr-y were uot only to abandon false hopes and false worship and in iquity. 1 nit they were to take with them words, and say unto the Lord. "Take away our iniquity and receive us gra ciousl.v. that we tuny render unto Thee the fruit of our lips?our praise." Then follows a prophecy which has not yet Leon fulfilled, but will, we be lieve, soon be realized. It tells of the turning away of God's anger, of His blessing upon Israel. It will have ful Blment when Messiah begins His reign. "Receive Us Graciously" Be tt noted that tbe people of Israel to this day have not accepted the Lord's terms as stated by tbe Prophet They have nut asked to be received by grace ?graciously. How (Jod can be Just and yet clear us was not made known In Hosen's day. but is uow clearly set forth as the very essence of the "good tidings" of God's love. God himself has provided In Je sus this, the Ransom sacrifice, neces sary to the satisfaction of Divine Jns tice. so tbat God can be both Ju*t and merciful, although those terms are an tagonistic. In order to have a clear understand lug of God's merciful provision it If necessary, first, that the trnnsgresso: shall come to a realization of his own needs?that be shall crave a recognition by tbe Creator and a share In ills mer cy and loving provisions. Such aban doning of sin to tbe extent of ability will nc assisted of the Lord in connec tion wirb the exercise of faith in Him. which will bring rest and peace of soul and a r<-.i!izatloo tbat Divine mercy will mnk*- ^'"<k1 all unintentional blem Ishes and ewtise all things to work to gether for ts<?>;\ to him. Hut there is no place on rti* Highway of Holiness? the Highway nl Divine mercy and love and forglvenc - and peace?for trans gressors, for thus, who knowingly and willingly go couirary to the Divine wilt Christendom's Idolatrous Debauch We are not to lose the force of this lesson by applying it wholly to the na tion of Israel. There is also n notu Ilia: spiritual Is r :i e I, styled ? ? (' hrlstendom." professing to be espoused to the Lord. Christen dorn Is. In the Scriptures, charg ed with adultery. In that sbe lives with the world. She is charged also with idolatry ? with worship ing bouses and lands, banks, stocks and bonds, name and fame. Only the comparatively few, a mere handful, know God as theii Father and are known of Him as Hi* children. Tbelr confidence is In tb. work of their own hands, and In lodges, unions, trusts, insurance, church membership, etc. "God is not In all their thoughts." The condition of "Christendom" to day Is one of trust In armies and nn vies, soldiers and guns, neroplnues and dyuamlte. grent wealth and prosperity Under the picture of Laodicea. the nominal church of todny is described as saying, "I nm rich and Increased In goods and have need of nothing."

KING HEZEK1AH of Judah has a wonderful record as a man of God, a reformer, a patriot, yet he was the son of a bad father, who in turn was the son of a good father, who in turn was the son of a bad father. The alterna tion between good nud bad for four generations Illustrates the fact that, although heredity has much to do with every member of our race, nev ertheless, there are counter-balances In nature. We ure all members of Adam's fam ily, and as such we are all sharers in the general weakness, mental, moral and physical, which for six thousand yea re has descended upon us. St. Paul refers to this, saying. "Ry one man's disobedience sin entered into the world, and death as the result of sin; and thus death passed upon all men. because all are sinners. ? Ko rnaus 5:12. The downward or sinful tenden cy Inbred in our very constitution is so stroug that uoue is able fully to overcome It. The best that any of us can do Is to set our wills in opposition to our Inherited weaknesses and to fight courageously against them. The Apostle assures us that if it were possible for humanity to fully gain such a victory over its fallen self ns to bring itself back to perfection, then doubtless God would have pro vided that svay of salvation. Hezekiah the Reformer The King's father had introduced Idolatrous worship?erecting altars and groves to the worship of Baal. God's temple was strewn with rubbish. Un der the direction of the King, the Levites began a cleansing work. It required eight days to carry out the rubbish from the court, etc. Thon the priests, who alone were authorised to enter into the Holy, or temple proper, were directed to cleanse the temple it self. But as a preliminary work, before the cleansing of the court or the tem ple began, the King directed that the priests and the Levites sanctify them selves afresh to the Lord and His service. How appropriate! How In harmony with the words of the Proph et Isainh, who lived at that time and who was the King's counselor?"Be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord's house.'"?Isa. C2:ll. But let us not forget the instruction of St. Peter upon this subject Com paring the priesthood of Israel with the institutions of the Christian church, St. Peter gives us the thought that the priests of olden times do not find their antitypes In the clerpy of today, but In God's saintly or sanctilled peo ple, whether In or out of the public ministry. Thus St. Peter says to all of the con secrated Church of Christ, "Ye are a Royal Priesthood, u Holy Nation, a peculiar people, that ye should show forth the prnlses of Him who has called you out of darkness into Ills marvel ous light." The Divine Blessing The conclusion of the feast was a Divine blessing upon all the people, through th?; Priests and Levites. So there goes ont a Divine blessing from the Lord's sanctified people ?from all the consecrated of the household of faith?to the peo ple in general? to their neigh liora, their friends and vis itors from afar. Bezekioh'a great Pait- Let such be our over- lnfluenceamongst men. In this connection let us remem ber the power of the tongue, of which the Apostle said, "Therewith praise we God, and therewith curse (or injure) we men." Let our tongues und all our powers be used in blessing the people as well as in praising our God. The King wisely began his reforma tion at the temple and gave the priests and Levites the first share therein. It was later that the idols of the city of Jerusalem were gathered and hurled Into the valley of Kedron, and It waB after the fervor of the Passover occa sion that the zeal of the people in gen eral rose high, end they went forth all over the land, destroying the Idols, the groves of Baal, and every symbol of disloyalty to God. And so today: Every where the light of our day Is showing more and more of the meanness, selfishness, corrup tion?some of it centuries old, and some ?1 It bred of special privilege and opportunity. The call for reform is heard on every hand, although some times but feeble. The proper place for reform Is, ns In Hezeklah's day, with the sauptiflcation of the priests and the Levites themselves. If the Church of Christ could but faithfully perform her responsibility, under the direction of the King, it would mean n great revival of religion. Football Invades Politics.
