made last year, the yield amounting
to 21 tons and G80 pounds, and for
thb crop ho has received $238.20. Ho
hired all the work done in caring for

LESSON FOR JUNE 7
COMING OF THE KINGDOM.
LESSON TEXT-LuUe 1?!HK!7.
GOLDEN TEXT-"Lo, tlio Kingdom ol
God Is within you." Luko 17:21.
I. The Kingdom Present, vv. 20, 21.
Tho Pharisees held somo peculiar
ideas about tho coming of tho king
dom. Contrary to their Ideas there
aro no special outward signs to herald
Its coming. Tho word "observation"
v. 20, is an nstronomlcnl ono and sug
gests that tho kingdom was to como
In a bodily shapd from tho sky, a cup
rent expectation on tho part of the
In answer to tho boastful Pharisees
(v. 20) Jesus plainly told them that
ho himself is tho kingdom, nnd that
that kingdom was in tholr midst or
"nmong you," seo (v. 21) margin.
Their question wns a flippant one, one
of unbollef, and to it Jesus makes n
characteristically brief, but clear ro
ply, that partook of the nnturo of n
rebuke. Tho kingdom would not
como with trumpets and drum.. They
could not say, "Lo hero! lo there!"
Its coming wns not to bo spectacular,
arresting tho attention of somo who
In turn brought it to the attention of
others. Tho authorized rendering
"within you" does not imply that tho
kingdom already existed in tho indi
vidual lives of his questioners. Sub
sequent teaching of Jesus shows that
ho hero refers to another and a final
coming of tho kingdom, at tho tlmo of
tho final coming of the son of man.
What he desired to teach theso Phari
sees was that the kingdom of which
they spoko had already appeared duo
to tho fact of his presenco in their
midst. The carping Pharisees with
draw and Jesus speaks openly to his
disciples of the days that will come,
a time of persecution when they will
long for comfort.
II. The Visible 8on of Man, w
22-24. The kingdom In its outward
form was rejected by the JewB, John
1:26, 27. In its spiritual form It la
now in the hearts of believers (Rom.
14:17), but ho who was rejected with
contempt will one day be sought after,
though in vain, Matt. 23:37.39. Dur
ing tho time of his absence many shall
claim to be Christ (v. 23), but we
are not to believe such claims. His
tory has abundantly proved and ful
filled this prophecy. When ho really
comes there will be a sudden publicity
(v. 24), that shall flash from one cor
ner to tho other of the heavens, Matt.
24:27; then "every eyo shall behold
him." "So shall the son of man bo
In his day." This Instruction Jesus
gives to his disciples. Men shall
search for him, a time whon ho shall
not be present as ho then was. After
the false ones will como a day of
revelation when tho wholo heavens
vlll reveal him and all will know it
Finality of Event.
III. The Day of the Son of Man, vv.
25-37. Before that day comes, how
ever, ho must suffer and be rejected
but following that rejection men will
marry, carry on merchandising and
merriment as In the days of Noab
and those of Lot. In tho days of Noab
and of Lot there came a sudden bait
In theso activities and a Judgment ol
flood and' fire, eveno "after tho same
manner shall it be In the day that the
eon of man Is revealed," v. 30. This
refers to tho finality of events when
the kingdom of God cornea by way of
Judgment Hero Jesus seta his seal
upon the truthfulness of these two
events which preceded hlB first ad
Tent. If they be-not true then ho la
a false teacher. Llko as men dis
credit those events they llkewlso would
set aside his teaching about his sec
ond advent Many claim that verso 31
refers to the destruction of Jeru
salem; the context to ua clearly dis
proves any such interpretation.
Verses 82 and 33 must be taken to
gether. Summary. Quite emphatically this
passage 1b a teaching on the subject
of tho coming of the kingdom of God.
That kingdom came when Christ came
in grace. It will come when he comes
In Judgment It Is coming constantly
between the two adventB. Remember
his reading of Isaiah's prophocy, Luko
4:18, 19; cf. Isa. 61:1-9. In his first
advent he did come to. preach the ac
ceptable year, the year of grace. That
day Is still with us. In his second
advont ho will proclaim tho day of the
vengeance of God. He will establish
tho kingdom, will build the waste
places and ralso desolations. Today
tho kingdom of God 1b among us in
power through tho presenco of Christ
by tho spirit In tho living church.
To tho Pharisees ho said: "Neither
shall they say, lo hero! lo there! for
tho kingdom Is In your midst." To
his disciples he said: "They shall Bay
lo there! lo hero! go not away nor
follow them." Wo cannot locallzo tho
kingdom. On nn ancient Syrian frag
ment tho words of Luko 1:33 read,
"and to his kingdom there shall be
no frontier." On the lips of tho Phari
sees, kingdom meant a political or
ganlzatlon and emplro. With Jesus it
means a spiritual realm universal in
extent, a rulo of righteousness, and
peace and Joy In tho Holy Spirit
When be appears all will know.'
