A GOD READY TO PARDON
Hosea 14?-June 4

by the Prophet Hosen to Is

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

words, and say unto the Lord. "Take

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.

HEZEKIAH'S GREAT REFORM
II Chronicles 30?Juno 11
'Man looketh on the outward appearance, but
the Lord looketh on the heart."?I Samuel
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
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
upon all men.
because all are
sinners. ? Ko

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
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
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
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
from the Lord's
?from all the
the household of
faith?to the peo
ple in general?
to their neigh
friends and vis
itors from afar.
Bezekioh'a great Pait- Let such be our
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.
