Impossible to p!oiu4 Mori.' Itch. 11 :C
Tho Old Testament closes with a
prophecy; tho Now Testament opens
with tho announcement of the fulfill
ment of that prophecy. Thus both
Testaments aro characterized In this
lesson: Tho Testament, prophecy;
ftio New Testament, fulfillment. It
is clenr from our Lord's own words
that John tho lmptlst fulfilled this Old
Testament prediction, (Mat. 17: 10
13). It may ho that n more literal
fulfillment Isc still future, proceeding
Christ's second Inning.
Our attention Is llrst drawn to tho
persons through whom God fulfills his
promise. Xncharins and Elizabeth
were both righteous, lly that Is not
meant that they wero. either sinless
or perfect no human being Is that
but that they wero parents whoso
whole heart, mind, and strength wero
dedicated to the will and service of
God, Zacharlas' unbelief shows that
ho was not. sinless.
This is the kind of people through
whom God is willing, and ready oven
today to fulfill his promise and bless
the world not through perfect peo
ple, but through those who nre con
stantly Btrlving after perfection.
There Is no limit to the blessings God
will confer upon the world through
us If only we will not touch tho glory.
The glorious vision and message

While shepherds watch their Hocks
i the angel comes. Vo must not for
' get that Kliabcth also In her modest,
humble seclusion was need to bless
I the world just as much ns Zacharlas
who was exercising a priestly function
l so high that the opportunity camo to
a priest but once in a lifetime. God
I chooses the weak things as well as
the grent things: D. L. Moody, tho tin
! educated shoo clerk, as well as Paul,
I tho Bcholar. So Isaac was a quiet
man nnd dwelt in tents.
I Tho next thing to which our ntten
I tiou Is tho content of the prophecy
' First, It concerns a child. Zacharias
I nnd Elizabeth were childless. It Is
no sin to bo childless provided that no
law of nattiro Is violated. It Is a sad
thing to he childless. At least It was
bo considered In Old Testament days.
Would that It were considered so to
day! A revival of the mother Instinct
This child was to be nn extraordin
ary child well every mother's child
is wonderful! This child was to go
before the Lord nnd prepare his way,
just ns your child mny follow after tho
Iord and walk In his steps a worthy
career for both John and your child,
and every child. Why should wo not
hold this ideal constantly beforo
Upon the promised child was to rest
tho vow of the Nazarlte. That mennt
two things: Absolute prohibition
from intoxicants, and entire dedica
tion to God. Can you think of any
two things more desirnblo for your
child, for every child? These par
ents had an ideal beforo them for
their child, and that was a trcineud
ous help. Have you? Or do you
bring your child up at random? Start
today with nn ideal. Let it bo high;
let It ho tho highest, even Christ.
Tho mission of John, tho Haptist,
was to be perormed by tho aid of tho
Holy Spirit. Is thero not n Biibtlo
contrast here between tho prohibition
of Intoxication nnd tho filling with
tho spirit? Just ns the person under
the Influence of Intoxicating Hnuor Is
governed and controlled by such spir
its, so the Christian worker Is to be
como bo fulfilled with tho spirit that
every part of him Intellect, sensibili
ties, will, feelings, nro under the
spirit's control. This spiritual equip
inent is what Is needed for Christian
Recauso the Haptist was splrlt-flll-ed,
ho was enabled to turn tho hearts
of tho children townrds their fathers.
Doubtless tho Jews had becomo taint
rd with tho Idolatry of the surround
ing nntlons t that thoy hnd to some
extent forsaken the faith of the pa
triarchs. Every Christian has tho Holy Spir
it, Just ns Egypt has the river Nile;
but every Christian does not havo tho
f fullness of tho Spirit, any moro than
Egypt always has tho overflow of tho
Nile; nnd Just ns the overllo'vv of tho
Nile means a bountiful harvest to
Egypt, so tho infilling nnd overflow
ing of the spirit In tho believer means
a bountiful harvest of fruit unto etor
It Is strnnge, is It not, that Zachar
las should doubt in tho presence of
thlB heavenly visitor! Surely one
should believe In tho presenco of such
a sign ns this. Thero aro peoplo to
day who say that they would believe
If thoy could hear n volco from tho
other shore speaking to them, or If
ono should come to them from tho
other life. Did the Jews believe even
though Lazarus camo back to them
from tho dead? No. If wo bellovo
not tho scriptures, neltbor would wo
bo persuaded In the presenco of so
supernatural a sign as this. Zacha
