"Hezekiah: A King Who Re
(2 Chro. 30:13-22)
Here is a great study in contrasts:
Ahaz, the father of Hezekiah exceed
ed in his godless life any king in
Judah up to this time, closed the
doors of the temple, discontinued the
worship of Jehovah, built altars in
Jerusalem on every street corner to
heathen gods, like the Athenians,
and offered sacrifices and worshipped
them. Under and in such inviron
ments did Hezekiah grew to man
hood. Contrary to all expectations this
man followed not his father, but we
rather believe the mother's influence
took him In the opposite direction;
she was the daughter of Zechariah,
a man that had understanding in
the visions of God (Chap. 28:5), his
mother's name was Abijah. We learn
here that it is not the rule that bad
parents have bad children, there are
some fine exceptions, and the same
rule works the other way too. Where
the father closed the doors of the
temple the son opened them; where
the father built altars the son broke
them down. The scriptural condition
was at a very low ebb.
Twenty-five years old, he becomes
king over Judah; and for twenty
nine years he ruled his kingdom
with Jehovah as partner, and so he
was a great success. No sooner had
he taken over the reigns, when he
showed the fine traits of his char
acter to inaugurate reforms to bring
the people back to God. .
instead of repal of prohibition.
This young man puts our states
men to shame, he began at the right
place too; he had not the Christ to
tell him as he does us: "Seek ye first
the Kingdom of God and his right
eousness, etc. (Matt. 6:33); but he
did just that; and by his act his
nation lasted 150 years longer .nan
the Kingdom of Israel. Here is a
prescription for the church, that ex
pects a revival: (a) the preparation
a good housecleaning In the con
gregation; old feuds between mem
bers, must be removed. Jealousies,
hatreds and festering sores must be
cured, straightened out the mem
bership mti6t become of one accord,
before the Holy Spirit can work
through them. This took sixteen
last Saturday and Sunday and visit
ing with his sons, returning to his
work on Monday. .
James W. Holmes of Plattsmouth
was looking after business matters

Mrs. W. O. Troop who has been
visiting at Wray, Colorado as well
as at Akron and Aspen for the last
nearly two months, returned home
last Sunday after having enjoyed a
very fine visit in the west. She says

the people were invited to the great
revival, which was the feast of the
Passover. This had been neglected
for centuries. The old testament re
cords only six definite celebrations
of this festival. 1. When Israelites
left Egypt, 'Ex. 12; 2. in the desert,
Numbers 9; 3. Joshua at Gilgal,
Josh. 5. 4. Josiah, 2 Chro. 35; 5.

doubtedly many more have been
Hezekiah invited all the tribes of
Israel, by messengers, who read the
proclamation in every city and vil
lage. Even as today, some accepted
the invitation, others had only scorn
ar.d sneers. But the feast was a great
success; where the law required
seven days of celebration, the people
were so enthused with the success,
that they stayed seven days more. So
it became a "protracted meeting,"
like the old fashioned Methodist and
Evangelical revivals no fast rule
10 day meetings. Another feature of
this revival was the joy experienced
in the services, the singing and shout
ing could be heard over the city it
It is quite different today; our re
vivals are a poor imitatio"n, they are
as lifeless as a funeral, no penential
tears, no joy as the soul receives the
pardon of sins forgiven, no gladness
shown after passing from death unto
life a handshake and a pat on the
back and its done not so In the
old time revival there was life and
peace and joy In the Holy Ghost.
What a remarkable change was
wrought, because one man, filled with
the spirit of God changed a whole n-a
tlon. That is what we need today
a man with vision, in league with
God calling the nation to clean
house, sanctify themselves to the
service of God, have a great spiritual
revival, bringing the nation back to
God; the economic troubles would
melt away like snow in July. A na
tion is only prosperous, happy and
content as it finds it In God. "God
shall supply all your needs according
to his riches in glory by Christ
Jesus." (Phil. 4:19).
Martin Ruby Very 111.
Martin L, Ruby, father of Mrs
James E. Gruber, who haa made his
home at McCook for a number of
years, some weeks ago with the wife
came east and visited a number of
weeks in Iowa and Wisconsin and

reports of malicious treatment of
rural mail boxes along Maiden Lane,
