LESSON FOR AUGUST 29 GOD'S CARE OF ELIJAH. LEISSON TEXT--1 Kings 17:1-1h. GO)I.II:N T EXT--Casting all your an*x letv up a hii I Oiause ia e it lh fIor yVuu. I I'etui L:7 h. V. We now skip thirty to forty years to consider the first of those great prophets whose lives are recorded at length. Samuel and David fought ani mals, armies and giants, Lut these menl fought engagements in tiw moral and spiritual realm of equal and greater importance. Epilihasize Elijah as a real live flesh-and-blood hero. Ilis work was with the northern kingdom and he probably first met Ahab at Sa maria, his capital in 912 1B. C. I ?) The Moabite stone (A. D. 1SS)j is a re markable confirmation of the Bible story of this period. I. The Challenge, v. 1. Tho lesson is a great illustration of faith. Sin had again made vast inroads upon the people (ch. 16:30-33) and this "man of the hour," whose name means "Jeho vah Mly Strength," (1) saw the condi tions; (2) responded to the need, and (3) had faith in his cause because it was that of Jehovah. The source of his faith was the word of the Lord God (Deut. 11:18; 32:20). lie that "liveth" and before whom the prophet stood in daily, hourly commn nication. Elijah was a man with a mission (Matt. 28:19) who trusted in God and considered it safo to obey. His power, "according to my word," was in ratio according to his life of faith (Honm. 10:17). He was also a man of prayer James 5:17) and showed l:is faith by his works (James 2:17, 20, 2ti). II. The Commandt, vv, 2-7. Elijah's faith was not audacious. He took each step as commanded by God Iv. 21. There is a time for seeming retreat as well as for the spectacular charge. Elijah's first place of testing was "Cherith," a gzrge to the east of the river Jordan. This command was con trary to human reason. "Would it not scon be involved in his prophesied drought?" Again, ravens frequently feed uponI carrion, and he knew all the regula tions regarding cleanness. Thus to be secluded would prevent his observing the effect of the drought upon both king and people. Still the command is .licit _Jt ýA'. "there" (v. 4), and there cnly, that Jehovah was to save. The miracle of saving was to be wrought under the most adverse cir cumstarces and by the most unlikely means. "So he went." Having faced the peril, God hid him to preserve him, and at the proper time God also re vealed him (ch. 18:12). It was a daily testing for Elijah at Cherith, thus to be fed and to see the water evaporat ing, but it was a time of communion' and after the brook was dry there came a new command (vv. 8, 9). IlI. The Continued Deliverance, vv. 8-16. Zarephath was (Luke 4:26) in: the dominions of Jezebel's father, on the coast of the Mediterranean sea be tween Tyre and Sidon, a dangerous journey for Elijah through Ahab',, kingdom (ch. 18:10). The word Zare phath means "smelting furnace," and it too was suffering from this same famine. Commanded to hide in Cherith Elijah is told to "dwell" in Zarephath and that a widow was to be the agent to supply his need. Again Elijah's pride had to be overcome for there were abundant reasons for disliking such a journey, such an abiding place ani such a dependence upon a poor widow. Elijah, however, "arose and went," a continuance of his lifo of obedience. He first asked for water and as she went he added his request for food. It was a particular widow to I whom he was sent (Luke 4:25-27) and I through her God was ready to work a miracle of salvation on his behalf. Though about to prepare what she thought was to be her own and her son's last meal (v. 12), yet she at once proceeds to obey the command of the man of God as it was conditioned upon the word of Jehovah (v. 14). God, through his prophets, has commanded us, given us assurance and promised to sustain (Phil. 4:19), yet we hesi tate. "She went and did" the seem ing impossible, but according to the word of command, and those of "her house did eat many days." Obedience saved her own, her son's and the prophet's lives. There is sound philoso phy in Preyov. 11:24 which found its complete fulfillment in Jesus who "came not to be ministered unto but to minister." Read carefully Prov. 3:7-10 and II Cor. 9:6-11. As with the Israelites in the wilderness the supply was only from day to day (v. 16) noth ing alhead, no accumulation, yet a per petual supply because based on "the word of the Lord" (v. 16). God worked this miracle: (1) to up hold and to preserve his chosen mes senger for his great work in Israel; (2) to show his loving kindness and sustaining grace to the poor; (3) to strengthen the faith of his prophet against his spectacular conflict on Mt. Carmel; (4) to the end that he might show Israel and all others down through the ages a great object lesson of his sustaining grace and providence. The widow's "two mites" are fPiling church treasuries today, and Mary's box of ointment has filled all Christen dom with its aroma and fragrance. Providence is progressive.

Now, a nation that may be willing to undertake a war lasting a few months may well hesitate after engaging in one that will occupy years. The daily cost of a great war is of course stupIendous. When this cost runs on for years the total is likely to be so great that the side which wins nevertheless loses. War will become prohibitively expensive. And the scouting work in flying machines will be the predominating factor. as it seems to me. In bringing this about. I like to think so, anyhow.
