SuNDAYSIOOL to *LEssol' od (By E. O. SELLERS Acting Director Of the Sunday School Course In the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago.) (Copyright, 1s17. Western Newspaper Union.) LESSON FOR JULY 8 AHAZ, THE FAITHLESS KING. LESSON TEXT-II Chron. 28:1-5, 20:27. GOLDEN' TEXT-Without faith it Is -impossible to please him.-Hob. 11:6. LESSON TEXT-II Chron. 30:1-13. Ahaz reigned sixteen years from about 789 to 723 B. C., over the king dom of Judah, its capital being In Jeru salem. The kingdom was nearing its end, and was destroyed within a few years after the death of Ahaz. His character presents many interesting questions for discussion; the character of his reign, the wealth and prosperity of his father and grandfather, the de velopment of his character from the home wherein he originated, why a na tion can be successful and not be right eous or virtuous, that is, outwardly successful, and the application of these questions to our present-day political and commercial lives. I. Ahaz, the Ruler, (vv. 1-5). The character of Aliaz is not to be admired. He played a prominent and evil part in the history of the Kingdom of Judah. We find his name recorded among the Syrian inscriptions of the year 732 B. C., the Hebrew historian having dropped the prefix "Jeho" from his name. The full name indicates that he had "grasped Jehovah," yet he was untrue to his name. The historian says "he did not that which was right in the sight of the Lord." This puts it mildly, but indeed few of the kings of Judah did otherwise, and he patterned his conduct not after the good model of his father, but the thoroughly bad conduct of the kings of the northern nation, Israel. He was but twenty years of age when he took the throne, but had already entered upon a course of action opposed' to that of his father. 1I. Ahaz Ruined. The choice lay before him of following in the steps of his grandfather Uzziah and his father Jotham (II Chron. 1:10). He chose to defy God, openly disobeyed Jiim and was disloyal to his God and his coun try, walking in the ways of the kings of Israel, (v. 2), burnt his children in the fire, after the abominations of the heathen, (v. 8), made molten iringes of Baal, (v. 2), and spread that wor ship into the high places on the hills and under every green tree (v. 4), made sacrilegious use of the temple's treasury, and was dishonest as well as profane. He trusted Baalim more than he trusted God. III. Ahaz Rebuked. God did not al low him to pursue his course of action without protest. When the children of good men go wrong, there is no meas uring the extent of depravity to which they will sink. Nevertheless, God was opposed and tried to save the young man and the nation. God used the king of Syria as one agency for rebuk ing this mad young man. He carried away great multitudes captive, one hundred and twenty thousand in one day (v. 6), and "two hundred thou sand women, sons and daughters" (v. 8) at another date. Ahaz himself was filled with terror at the great ca lamity that overtook him. (Isa. 7 :2.) While he received temporary help (IT Kings 16: 9, 10), he received ultimately ruin from the king of Assyria, for he became a vassal and was summoned to Damascus to pay homage to that king, as appears from the account II Kingo 16:7-9, and also from the Assy rian inscription, above referred to. Other enemies also attacked him Edomites from the southeast carried away captives, and the Philistines from the southwest invaded the cities of the low plains, south of Judah, and took possession of themi (vv. 17-19) and the army of the Assyrian, which Ahaz led to rob and profane the temple and its treasures in order to buy them of! (v. 22-24), completed the ruin of his nation. Ahas wvas forced to pay a heavy tribute to the Assyrian king (v. 21), and got no help for his out lay. He put his trust in an arm of flesh insteadl of in the mighty arm of God, which brought upon him the curse that always comes to those who trust in man (Jer. 17:5, 6). There is a blessing which always awaits those who trust in Jehovah (Jer. 17:7, 8). The wise man turns to God not in the time of his distress but at all times. Instead of sacrificing to the God, who saved his father and who would save him, Ahas sacrificed to the god "which smote him." His defiance knewv no boundls (v. 24). He seemed to have dabbled in every known form of false worship, thereby "provoking to anger the Lord God of his fathers" (II Kings 23:11, 12). God is long-suffering to those who wandler from him, hut the(re comes an (end( to his patience (II Peter 3:0, 10). IV. The Reverse Picture. There are several problems to be solvedl as we view this picture, for it is al story of real life, not only of the early times bult is being repeatedl even today and in this country. (1) Men will reap that which they sow. One cannot sow wild oats andl reap the fruits of right eousness. (2) Jehovah places right eousness above security or prosperity. (3) God's purposes are for the uplift and the making of the nation and the individunl better. God never does evil that good mny come out of it.
