S. S. Lesson for May 28.
Subject: “Jeremiuh speaks boldly
for God.”
Golden Text: Jer. r:-13. "Amend,
your ways and your doings, and obey;
the voice of Jehovah.”
Since we have but one lesson on i
Jeremiah, I think it best that we go 1
back to chapter eighteen and verse
six to start. In answer to God's
call he said, "Ah, God, behold, I can
not speak for I am a child.” But the
Lord God said unto me “Say not. I
am a child, for thou slialt go to all
that I shall send thee, and whatso
ever I command thee thou shalt
speak,” so reads verse 7 and verse
nine. "Behold I have put my words
in thy mouth.”
A certain evangelist was dealing
with a certain railroad president
in his office concerning the salvation
of his soul. A certain secretary of a
railroad Y. M. C. A. sat near and
heard it all, then and there God
anointed him for taking the word ot
God to a lost world and has filled J
his mouth as truly as he filled the j
mouth of Jeremiah. He patted no
set on the back teling them they
were all right, I heard a fellow com

mentlng on those people standing un
til Jeremiah was done as we read
In verse eight of our lesson. He said
“It must have been the earnest look
in his face,” another spoke up and
! said it must have been the message
I and a number of fellows had thbir
say," but does it not seem more like
j that if God could give him a message 1
for those people that he could hold :
them until the message was done.
When I started to read the Bible
after my conversion all I could see
in the old Testament was one army
! against the other, but later I began
I to see the cause and still later I be
gan to see that while they were the
real people and the fighting was the
real stuff they were also types for
us. 1 Cor. 10-11 and Rom. 15-4.
The Bible from Ex. chapter 12 and
verse 1, to the last verse of Paul, the
end of the Old Testament is either
promise or warning to the children
of Israel, not to the Amalekites. or
world, but to His people and the
greater part o fths New Testament
is the church, not to the world.
"If my reader says, "I am not a
Christian and then that does not con
cern me,” let me as a friend say that :
a bit of the New Testament concerns 1
you for your convenience I will give j
it here in full. Rev. 3-18 “If the
righteous scarcely be saved where j
shall the ungodly and the sinner ap- 1
pear.” and Heb. 4-13, "Neither is there j
any creature that is not manifest in '
his eye for all things are naked and j
often unto the eyes of Him with

whom we have to do.”
In Chicago last fall I heard a mis
sion band give some of the most bles
sed testimony I over heard. A Sa
viour-indeed it was. I was talking
to a slave to sin and he began tell
ing me how he was a member of the
church, you see he had bis name on
a church record and he was made
to believe that made him all right.
He had been taught by such minis
ters as w;; are told about in Eze. 34
anil verses 12 and 16. Do not let the
old devil deceive you. • Let our God
do in you and with you what He
wants to do and how the bondage of
sin will go. Sure you will get in
trouble then, but it will be outside
of you and you will be able to sing

right In the face of the devil. I
know there are people who jio not
believe in a devil. The be illus
tration 1 can find for that is when
we had saloons. A man would go I
get drunk, gd home and whip his j
j wife and family, then he would be ]
arrested and put in jail, his wife then
! would do washings to keep the family j
j and not one word about the saloonl
keeper who sold him the drink. If |
there is no devil, says one, "Who
carries his business on.?”
